Amid the media firestorm over Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's annual propaganda turn on the world stage addressing the UN General Assembly, let’s not lose sight of the need to get tougher on Iran.

Letters To The Editor

When Sharon Was SharonSome words from Ariel Sharon's 1995 eulogy for Ofrah Felix, who was murdered by terrorists:"I remember her as a little girl...

Yossi Sarid – In Life and In Death

Israel’s Little Red Riding Hood

“Hey, Little Red Riding Hood, what is that dome on your head?” “Grandma-tech knitted it for me out of steel wool,” Little Red Riding Hood proudly answered. “Nice, isn’t it?” “Sure, it’s nice,” answered the wolf, licking his lips. “It fits you very well. But why is it made out of steel wool?”

2016: Effective, Well Done, a Caveat or Two

Dinesh D’Souza’s film, 2016: Obama’s America, is very good at putting the viewer in the milieu of Jakarta or Nairobi, which continue to feel “different” enough to engage the American viewer’s sense of distance and wonder. Conveying the difference of Barack Obama’s childhood and his idea of cultural roots – the difference from American life – is the movie’s most effective accomplishment.

Saving Money; Losing Lives

A Draw with Hamas is Strategically Unsatisfactory

Reducing enemy capabilities and ambitions in Gaza requires Israeli military readiness and government willingness to use force intermittently, while maintaining a healthy and resilient Israeli home front….Perhaps the Egyptian mediators might yet broker a deal for quiet, but if Hamas doesn’t back down fast – Israel is ready for a fierce campaign involving pinpoint commando operations and targeted assassinations. The IDF can pounce with crushing blows, without conducting a full-scale ground invasion.

Happy Re-Birth Day Israel!

We Jews are an extremely tight knit family. Families fight and argue, yell and scream, rant and rave – especially when things are stable. But push a family into the corner, or provide it with reason for celebration – and, usually, family members they will come together in profound and extreme ways.

The True Enemies of the Palestinians

The agreement absolves Hamas of financial responsibilities towards its constituents in the Gaza Strip. The resumption of PA funds to the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip will allow Hamas to redirect its resources and energies to building up its military capabilities in preparation for war with Israel.

What, Me Pessimistic? Egyptian Election Outcome is Worse Than I Expected

Should we feel good that democracy has functioned and that the people are getting what they want? Or should we feel bad that the people want a repressive dictatorship, the repression of women, the suppression of Christians, conflict with Israel, hatred of the West, and the freezing of Egyptian society into a straitjacket that can only lead to continue poverty and increasing suffering?

A Sofer at the Kotel

So-fer, so good; a creative idea to increase shalom amongst Jews through Torah

Immigration Reform Shouldn’t Mean Scapegoating

To eliminate the diversity immigrant visa program due to the crimes of a few would be a great disservice to the many worthy innocent immigrants who rely on the program for a chance at the American dream

Rubin Reports: France – Here Comes the Whitewash

In the past, the mass media could be expected to present a debate on how to interpret this event but now all too often they give a monopoly to the whitewashers and the apologists.

Purim: Agony and Ecstasy

Paradoxically, Baruch Mordechai's physique was at odds with his state of mind. He was of tall and powerful build.

A Post-Primary Message

Before we wrap up the primary campaign, I wish to express a heartfelt thanks to all of my supporters. To push the faith-based alternative uphill, over long years and against all odds, is a task that I could never have done alone.

Freedom House Readies Downgrade of Israel, Based on Palestinian Deceit

In a clear distortion of information, the once prestigious Freedom House, a not-for-profit organization that purports to monitor which societies in the world are truly free, appears deliberately to have omitted and misrepresented easily verifiable information in what can only be seen as an attempt to downgrade Israel from "free" to "partly free."

Why Israel Threatened Military Action to Save an Enemy

The Druze consider themselves to be and act as loyal Israelis in every respect, so Jewish Israelis consider themselves bound to show equal loyalty to the Druze.
