Not One More Dime To Federation

The funding of this country's Federation network as well as how and where the money is spent cries out for investigation and accountability.

Israel’s Friends In Washington Are Confused

The precise details of that withdrawal are always subject to negotiation, but everyone agrees that the basis for any real chance of 'peace' is for Israel to withdraw.

An Unspeakable Tragedy

How can two such delicious souls who -- in King David's famous expression -- were beloved and sweet in their lives and in their deaths have not parted be robbed from us so brutally?

President Bush Deserves Our Votes

Why have I endorsed George W. Bush when I don't agree with him on a single domestic issue? Because I believe the issue of international terrorism trumps all other issues.

Poster Girl Of The Israeli Left

Israelis are expressing shock and astonishment over the arrest last week of a 29-year-old Jewish leftist woman from Tel Aviv for collaboration with one of the worst Palestinian terrorists and murderers still above ground.

Why Lt. Gen. Moshe Yaalon Is Wrong About Surrendering The Golan

Speaking recently to Yediot Aharonot, an Israeli newspaper, Israel's Chief of General Staff commented that withdrawal from the Golan Heights would not endanger Israel's security. According to Lt. Gen. Moshe Yaalon, the Israel Defense Force (IDF) could defend the country's borders even if a political decision were taken to leave the 620-square mile strategic plateau.

Israel And The Old/New Imperialism

The United Nations' poor record regarding both Jews and Israel, with its consistently pro-Arab bias, is too well known to require further elucidation.

Ralph Nader’s Curious New Allies

Nader and the Green Party abandoned each other, so he is faced with greater difficulty in obtaining ballot lines than he was in 2000.

Shooting Herself In The Foot

Recently, the veteran journalist Barbara Matusow wrote a rather shallow and uncomprehending piece for American Journalism Review, portraying critics of the mainstream media's Middle East coverage as nothing more than propagandists and chronic scolds, and claiming to detect little if any conscious bias among reporters stationed in the region.

Things Said And Not Said: Variations On A Theme

Goldberg lamented that "the extremist yeshivas that give rise to fundamentalist thuggery are financed in part by Orthodox Jews in America," but didn't identify the yeshivas or their purported American backers.

Race Against Lies

The Western media has still not caught on to the way in which Arabs and Palestinians are systematically using media technology to brainwash people with simplistic and highly biased versions of reality.

A Planeload Of Joy

We in Israel need Nefesh B'Nefesh. Every time this organization brings in another planeload of olim, the welcome is so uplifting, the arrival is so exciting, the emotional high is so stimulating, that several old-timers go to the airport ceremonies just to be reminded how important American and Canadian aliyah is.

Project Daniel: Conclusions (Part Ten – Final)

Medieval maps typically portrayed Jerusalem at the center of the world. From the standpoint of nuclear strategy and world peace, such a portrayal has exceptional validity today. Confronted with relentlessly genocidal state and non-state enemies, some of which energetically seek weapons of mass destruction, Israel must now quickly fashion a coherent and pragmatic strategic doctrine. Recognizing this urgent requirement, the Project Daniel Group undertook to prepare its unprecedented Final Report to the Prime Minister.

Project Daniel: Israel’s Deterrence And Defense Doctrine (Part Nine)

Last week, we considered Project Daniel's recommendations concerning Israel's preemption and nuclear warfighting doctrines. The Group strongly endorsed the Prime Minister's acceptance of a broad concept of defensive first-strikes, but just as strongly advised against using his undisclosed nuclear arsenal for anything but essential deterrence.

More Hypocrisy From Sulzberger’s Times

The transformation of The New York Times is more or less complete. The newspaper long known for a liberal sensibility that sometimes bled from the editorials into the news stories has, over the past decade or so, essentially become the media auxiliary of the Democratic Party.

Marin County’s Palestinian Propaganda-Fest

According to the description of the film at the MPJC website, it's nothing more than a regurgitation of ISM's standard roster of lies.

Who Looks Like A Liar Now?

Wilson's attacks on the president's case for a Saddam-yellowcake connection was one of the opening salvos in what has become a relentless and ongoing assault by establishment types against Bush's credibility.

Turning Our Backs On Orthodox Education

Our schools will now experience even greater pain, and the phony rhetoric used by Federation to justify its wrongful decision only makes matters worse.

A Crusade We Must Win

With the United Nations on Tehran's case, the only reasonable hope for preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons rests with the Israeli Air Force.

The Abominable Izzy Stone

June 18 marked the fifteenth anniversary of the passing of I.F. Stone, who upon his death was eulogized by mainstream journalists for his supposed independence and iconoclasm and who still remains an iconic figure to many in the media. This despite (or perhaps because of) his long record as a vocal enthusiast of Soviet-style socialism and merciless basher of Israel long before the sport assumed widespread popularity.

When You Can’t Say ‘Muslim’

Was Lacey afraid to describe the perpetrators as Arab Muslims or did his editor delete the word Muslim?

Standing Steadfast With Israel

God is not neutral in the affairs of man. He is on the side of justice.
