True Role Models (Part Three)

It is hard for modern day visitors to Israel to imagine some of the situations that immigrants to Israel found 20 and 30 years ago.

Sharon’s Embarrassing Herzliya Speech

I paid close attention to last week's Herzliya Conference and helped promote it by interviewing various speakers, including conference founder Uzi Arad, and writing several general articles about the event.

ADL’s Misleading Media Surveys

The Anti-Defamation League, fresh off its lamentable stint as unwitting public relations apparatus for Mel Gibson, has, yet again, demonstrated a jaw-dropping inability (or perhaps a cynical unwillingness) to differentiate between a newspaper's news coverage and its editorial views.

In the most accepting and tolerant country in the history of humanity, the United States of America, they have continued to feel threatened by the persistence of any aspect of traditional culture and loyalties.

Blue America: The Land Of The Easily Offended

It is most unlikely that conservative men or women speak that way - saying, "I am offended" - when they hear liberal speakers.

Time To Protect Jerusalem’s Sanctity: An Open Letter To Mayor Lupoliansk

What did the Maccabees do that was so important that all Jews have been required to honor them, year after year, for thousands of years?

The Assault On Shechita

It was the Wednesday afternoon before Thanksgiving. Downtown offices in Washington had emptied out for the weekend.

Avoiding The ‘Road Map’ After Arafat

Arafat is gone, but the "Road Map" remains. Indeed, regarding Israel's continuance in the Middle East, absolutely nothing has changed in the Palestinian Authority or in the Arab world generally. Notwithstanding President Bush's explicit plea for a "Two State Solution," the PA and its allies still see only one state. This State of Palestine would include all of Judea, Samaria and Gaza, and ALL of the rest of Israel.

True Role Models (Part Two)

Olim in those days left behind all their friends and much of their family, and, unlike today, found it expensive and difficult to be in contact with them.

Moral People Must Learn How To Hate

'For everything there is a season and a time for every matter under heaven. A time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.' (Ecclesiastes. 3).

Season’s Mixed Messages Weaken Jewish Identity

One of the by-products of the acceptance of Jews in virtually every sector of American society is the fact that barriers to intermarriage are also nonexistent.

Au Revoir, Harry Danning

Harry Danning died last week, and all The New York Times could muster was a dry, unbylined, six-paragraph obituary that somehow managed to overlook Danning's Jewishness - not a small thing when one considers that Danning played for the old New York Giants from 1933 to 1942, was selected four times to the National League All Star team, and until his death at age 93 had been the oldest living Jewish major leaguer.

Israel’s Tenured Radicals Exposed

The scandal of anti-Israeli, anti-Zionist, and sometimes anti-Semitic radicalism among Israeli academics is now highlighted on a new website.

If At First You Don’t Secede…

Disgruntled Democrats are licking their wounds, willing the time machine to hurry over the next four years.

Letters To The Editor

So let me see if I have this straight. The anti-Zionists claim that the Jews have no right to the land of Israel because before Israel was re-created in 1948, it had been almost 1,900 years since the last time that the Jews exercised sovereignty over the Land of Israel.

A Cold Canadian Air Over Israel

Is Canada's involvement in any peace process really in Israel's best interests?

Leftists, Neo-Nazis Unite In Mourning Arafat

After years of monitoring the hate speech disseminated by conservative radio and Internet (one of my reports is cited in David Brock's recently released The Republican Noise Machine), I am forced to conclude that the "politically correct" vitriol of the Israel-hating activist Left makes the venomous rhetoric of right-wing ideologues seem mild by comparison.

Confessions Of A Republican Rabbi

Strange, some say, for a Jew. Untraditional. Yet, ironically, it is because of Jewish tradition that I vote the way I do.

Democrat Echo Chamber

One of the websites listed here last week as a Monitor favorite did a sterling job Sunday exposing The New York Times as a journalistic copy machine of Democratic Party talking points.

After Arafat – Distinguishing Power From Weakness In The Middle East

Even now - after Arafat, after thousands of Israeli men, women and children have been systematically dismembered, burned and mutilated by the most barbaric terrorist movement in recent memory - much of the world remains willfully impervious to geopolitical truth.
