A Liberal Gives Bush His Due

An important article in the current issue of The New Republic warrants attention. The piece, "The Politics of Churlishness," is the magazine's April 11 cover story by editor-in-chief Martin Peretz, and it amounts to a lifelong liberal's mea culpa for having prejudged and misjudged President Bush in the area of Middle East policy.

Whether in the home or in governmental actions or ordinary social relationships, obedience can be achieved through teaching or example.

Israel, Palestine And The ‘Samson Option’

Taken in isolation, the emerging Palestinian state - a state that is now being forged with the open support of U.S. President George W. Bush - will have no direct bearing on Israel's nuclear posture. Yet, although obviously non-nuclear itself, Palestine could substantially diminish Israel's capacity to wage certain forms of conventional war and could thereby enlarge the Jewish State's incentive to rely on unconventional weapons in particular circumstances.

True Role Models (Part Eighteen)

The Vanishing Jewish Baseball Player

Whatever happened to Jewish baseball players? Not that they're an extinct species - several Jews are currently playing in the major leagues or working their way through the minors - but Jewish baseball fans will tell you the present-day crop is relatively unaccomplished and unknown.

Pope A Lamed-Vavnik?I bear no ill will toward the late Pope John Paul II, but I found myself wincing at the statements put out...

The Pope’s Mixed Legacy

The foremost memory of John Paul II will be for his heart. When I conjure up an image of the pope, it is invariably in connection with some gesture of warmth and loving kindness to a child, to a widow, to the poor.

Indignation As Weapon In The Tabloid Wars

If on any given day last week you happened to chance upon the New York Post, you quite possibly assumed at first glance that the Deluge was upon us at last - until a closer look revealed that the unfolding drama which so consumed the paper's headline writers, reporters, columnists and editorialists involved nothing more than an unfortunate misprint in a contest run by the New York Daily News.

Controversy At Columbia: A View From Inside The Institution

A very few of the very many Jewish professors at Columbia have been moved to oppose the systematic anti-Israel bias that pervades Columbia's teaching and to argue for the inadequacy of the "settlement" that appears to be in the offing.

Avoda Zara 2005

Israel’s Anti-Democratic Anti-Racism Law

In 1977 Israel's criminal code was changed. Section 144A was added, making "racism" a crime.

France, Jews And The Absence Of Memory

Truly, there can never be any virtue without memory, and France - it would seem - displays a persistent penchant for forgetting. Now unambiguously aligned with the Arab/Islamic states in global geopolitics, France's staunchly oppositional posture toward Israel is a predictable continuation of official French policy toward the Jews during and immediately after World War II.

True Role Models (Part Seventeen)

Many Israelis are dreading the march of time as the days of "disengagement" approach.
