A Book That Frames Our Faith And Addresses Our Questions

A hearty recommendation for "Reason to Believe," not only for those who struggle with our religion and faith but it will enhance the understanding of those without questions of faith.

President Trump: Peace With Whom?

By Koranic decree, Islam cannot surrender land it considers dar al-Islam. It can be argued, therefore, that even if Israel were to offer the Palestinians all of its present land less three blocks of Tel Aviv, the deal would be turned down.

The New Jacobins

Free speech does not permit depriving others of their free speech rights – through disruptions, heckling, or other tactics intended to suppress and/or eliminate the speech of those with opposing views

J Street Meddling Turns Illinois Race into Two- Vs. One-State Debate

Tammy Duckworth, a Democrat, is an Iraq war veteran challenging Representative Joe Walsh, Republican of Illinois' northwest suburban 8th congressional district (about an hour's drive from Chicago, give or take). There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with her, except for the fact that she has received the endorsement of J Street, the leftist pro-Palestinian, "tough-lovers" of Israel PAC.

Modesty In The Age Of Abuse

According to the Ramban, this week's parshah is a roadmap and guide for all generations on how to engage with Eisav and his descendants and, as such, each pasuk, each word, each letter, is vital as we make our way.

After Fatah-Hamas Reconciliation The Endless Futility Of Israel’s ‘Peace Process’ (A Column in Five...

At the end of April 2011, the Palestinian Authority, Fatah and Hamas reached a formal reconciliation and unification agreement. At that time, Hamas leader Mahmoud Azhar carefully noted the still-unchanged Hamas platform - "no recognition of Israel, and no negotiation." To be sure, this refractory position will become the de jure and/or de facto position of Fatah as well.

FirstOne Through: Unity – not Uniformity – in the Pro-Israel Tent

The pro-Israel tent should allow people with different voices, but not those that seek to use external pressure to harm the Jewish State.

The Vatican’s Cardinal Sin

Obviously, none of the individuals involved were honored by the pope because of their anti-Semitism, rather despite it.

Will the New Israel Fund Also Fight Anti-Jewish Incitement?

The New Israel Fund recently announced that it “is undertaking a comprehensive survey to identify those most involved in inciting racism and violence.” Incitement to violence and intolerance is a particularly troubling problem plaguing Israeli society today. This problem is all the more severe when the incitement comes from respected public figures and political leaders. But will the New Israel Fund will also include anti-Jewish incitement coming from the Israeli Left?

Who Is Responsible For Our Children?

In the past weeks Israel has been rocked by a rash of murders - murders of children at the hands of their parents or in one case, the grandfather.

Learning From The Larry Nassar Case

For those who still dismiss or downplay reports of abuse and say the abuser made a mistake and should be given another chance because he will do teshuvah – repent – the Nassar case proves otherwise.

Democratic Platform: No Mention of Islamist Challenge, No Support for Arab Liberals

When I read the platform I am shocked and disappointed. I can pick at the issues of popularity, Afghanistan and Iraq. But the failure to deal with revolutionary Islamism is ridiculously glaring (they didn’t use the tiniest fig leaf to cover themselves), making a mockery about the democracy and human rights’ pretensions. The treatment of Middle East allies is shockingly insulting. The issues of Syria and Egypt are simply dodged. There is not a single mention of the opposition in Iran. All terrorists not involved directly in the September 11, 2001, attacks are ignored. There is not the slightest hint that any regional strategy exists at all.

Exclusive: Hillary Clinton On Israel, Iraq And Terror

On the eve of her expected reelection victory, New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton met with the editorial board of The Jewish Press.

The Golem Disease

The super hero myth is dangerous because it is an excuse for inaction and fantasy.

Iran Continues To Game The System

Many of us thought Mr. Obama’s diplomacy strategy was simply a device to dodge a decision that force was necessary to ensure the rogue state of Iran would not get its hands on nuclear weapons and thereby pose an existential threat to world peace.

A Solution to the Draft Controversy

My proposal to solve the contentious issue of Israel’s universal draft.

Israel As Tragic Hero: Enduring Sacred Tribulations In An Absurd World Order

In an ancient myth, the Greek gods condemn Sisyphus to roll a great rock to the top of a mountain, whence the stone will inevitably fall back of its own weight. By imposing this terrible judgment the gods had prescribed the dreadful punishment of interminable labor. But they also revealed something vastly more difficult to understand, namely, that even such useless labor need not be altogether futile. Such labor, they knew, could also be heroic.

UN Plan for ‘Palestine’: the Palestinian View

Israeli leaders be thinking about doctrinal continuity in all of the seemingly discrete Palestinian factions.

Another Classic New York Times Endorsement

The Times acknowledges that “Certainly, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis deepened during her tenure” – and then hastens to add “but she did not cause that.”

Islam’s Tenuous Connection to Jerusalem

Jerusalem only seems important in the Islamic world when non-Muslims control or capture the city.

Groundbreaking For Museum Of Jewish History Of Polish Jews

It has been more than 10 years since its conception, but finally the long-awaited groundbreaking ceremony for the Museum of Jewish History of Polish Jews has been set for June 26, 2007.

A Theory Of The Ten Commandments

In 2003, Alabama Supreme Court Judge Roy Moore attained brief fame when he placed and refused to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments in the State Supreme Court building. Moore’s actions and his subsequent removal from office by a unanimous decision of Alabama’s Court of the Judiciary were just another part of the American debate about the role of religion in the United States.
