Ward Churchill And The Politics Of Campus Extremism

Given the current academic atmosphere, it is a safe bet that what might delicately be called Churchill's shortage of sympathy in the Jewish direction made him a strong candidate to head Colorado's Ethnic Studies program.

Just Call Him Roxie LaRue

Anyone who truly feels betrayed by Ariel Sharon's apparent transformation into a flabbier, more sartorially challenged version of Shimon Peres is either (a) ignorant of Israeli political history or (b) mesmerized by years of watching a master illusionist at work.

Israeli Nuclear Deterrence

Israel's nuclear capacity remains undeclared. For now, this is in Israel's overall best interest.

Confessions Of A Confused Religious Zionist

How are religious Zionists supposed to react to these new stories? What conclusions should we reach?
