Meir Panim’s Tiberias Free Restaurant not only provides warm meals, but the opportunity to socialize as well.
In the most surprising turnabout of all, it was finally the Republicans led by the conservative Ronald Reagan who moved in to fill the void left behind by the retreat of the liberals.
Here is the footnote: James Piereson is a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, where he directs the Center for the American University. He was previously the executive director and a trustee of the John M. Olin Foundation. His book was published six months ago, generating various favorable reviews. This past Sunday it was finally reviewed in The New York Times Book Review – a half-page review, published at the bottom of page 54, concluding that the book is “rubbish.”
The review is not a fair summary of the book, much less a capable critique of its thesis, and the belated review seems to have been run for the sole purpose of discouraging readers from perusing it.
It is a pretty good illustration of the descent of the Times from paper of record to school newspaper for the modern Democratic Party.

Israel’s R&D expenditure is higher than any western country.
With the passage of time, fewer and fewer people are left to testify about life and death in the camps at the hands of the Nazis.
A fascinating Biblical echo
So much of the struggle between Israel and the Arabs continues to concern space.
Late last year, I was flying from Los Angeles to San Jose – a trip I have made many times in the course of my professional career. Over the years, I have watched the San Jose airport transform itself – from a one-building terminal with rental cars parked on the curb to an international airport with rental car facilities much larger than the entire airport I first visited many years ago.
The firestorm that erupted with the YouTube posting of excerpts from a 1990 sermon by Pastor John Hagee – reflecting his belief that the Holocaust and the establishment of Israel both reflected God’s will – is a case study of how certain religious views have been placed beyond the pale of permissible discussion.
1. From Senator Joseph Lieberman’s November 9 speech at The Johns Hopkins University Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies:
Professors John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt were in Los Angeles last month, speaking to an overflow crowd of more than 300 people at the Armand Hammer Museum – part of a speaking tour with appearances at World Affairs Councils in San Francisco, Dallas and Washington, D.C., the City Club in Cleveland, forums at the University of Chicago, MIT and Columbia University, the Cambridge Forum in Harvard Square, and media slots on NPR, the Colbert Report, and WTTW-TV in Chicago.
