Why Israel Should Not Give Up Its Nuclear Weapons: An Informed Response To Obama...

15 Sivan 5768 – June 18, 2008
We have seen that, among several other essential purposes, Israel could conceivably need nuclear weapons for nuclear war fighting.

Status Normal

Have you noticed that some problems just won't go away?

Restoration Of Poznan Cemetery

During my trip to Poland last year, I witnessed the restoration project underway in the city of Poznan.

Getting Stronger Every Day: An Interview With Moshe Feiglin

The following is an excerpt from a recent Front Page interview with Moshe Feiglin. The interviewer is Dan Rabkin of FrontPageMagazine.com.

‘Nice’ Vs. ‘Right’

As summer arrives, our thoughts here in the offices of Yachad/National Jewish Council for Disabilities are on our one-of-a-kind summer program, Yad B’Yad. Yad B’Yad, which translates from the Hebrew as Hand in Hand, is unique in that participants include both “mainstream” high-school students – from Jewish or public/secular schools – and campers who have developmental disabilities and sometimes accompanying physical disabilities. Yad B’Yad is a touring summer program; most summers see two concurrent trips; one in Israel and one somewhere in the United States. (This year’s U.S. trip will be on the West Coast with time spent in Hawaii.)

The Emerging Reagan Consensus

Nearly 20 years since he left the White House, Ronald Reagan has begun taking his place in the small gallery of most consequential presidents. Though his admirers accorded him a prominent spot long ago, the story of recent years has been the gradual recognition of Reagan’s achievements among more liberal-minded scholars.

If Only Col. Klein Were A Satmar Chassid

10 Sivan 5768 – June 13, 2008
When Prime Minister Ariel Sharon had to justify his decision to free rogue Israeli businessman Elchanan Tannenbaum from Hizbullah captivity (a move for which the State of Israel paid a steep emotional and human price), he used the term “Jewish sentiment” – one of the rare occasions in Israeli history that this forgotten ideal had been brought to the fore.

Why Israel Should Not Give Up Its Nuclear Weapons: An Informed Response to Obama...

9 Sivan 5768 – June 12, 2008
We have seen that, among other purposes, Israel needs nuclear weapons to undertake and/or to support various forms of preemption.

Lament For A Generation

The more I hear of Olmert and Sderot, of anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism (the former more often than not a cover for the latter), the more I sense the vast and unfortunate divide that separates my years of growing up from the ones I now spend raising my children.

A Bunch Of Waldos

Released in 1987, Where’s Waldo? was the first of illustrator Martin Handford’s Waldo series of books to become a sensation. Where’s Waldo? introduces readers to the eponymous hero, a distinctively dressed young man who sets off on a worldwide journey. Waldo travels to everyday places, like the beach, ski slopes and the zoo, each of which is detailed by two-page illustrated spreads filled with people and activities. Somewhere amidst the intricately crowded scene is the camouflaged Waldo, and readers are asked to scour the detailed illustration to locate the lost traveler.

Rediscovering The Will To Win

Some three-and-a-half years ago, former Prisoner of Zion and Israeli cabinet minister Natan Sharansky was George W. Bush’s favorite author. Sharansky earned an unexpected boost when the president invited him and co-author Ron Dermer to the White House and told the world that everyone should read their book, The Case for Democracy: The Power of Freedom to Overcome Tyranny and Terror.

Don’t Blame Israel For Arab Woes

As Israel celebrated its 60th anniversary last month, there were the usual voices raised accusing Israel of victimizing the Palestinian Arabs and “running them out” of the Jewish state.

Buchanan Revisited

9 Sivan 5768 – June 11, 2008
The Monitor requests some forbearance from readers; with preparations in high gear for an extended 10th anniversary column which, barring catastrophe, will appear as the front-page essay in the July 4 issue, this week’s offering is a reprint of a piece that garnered significant reader feedback when it first appeared several years ago.

Olmert: An Out-Of-The-Box Analysis

I do not think that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's government will fall in the near future.

Why Israel Should Not Give Up Its Nuclear Weapons: An Informed Response To Obama...

1 Sivan 5768 – June 4, 2008
We have seen (in last week's list of reasons, numbers 1 and 2) that Israel needs nuclear weapons, among other purposes, to deter large conventional attacks and all levels of unconventional attack by enemy states.

Preserving Jewish Cemeteries In Poland

Every spring and summer, there is renewed activity throughout Poland regarding the preservation of Jewish cemeteries.

Stalling Tactics And The Dubai Solution

Now that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's doctors did not significantly stall the police investigation into his highly suspect activities, we must brace ourselves for the prime minister's next delaying gimmick.

The Al-Dura Myth And Media Silence

On September 30, 2000, the world was electrified by a photo and video of a 12-year-old Palestinian boy, Mohammed al-Dura, apparently dying in his father’s arms after being shot by Israeli soldiers. The image would appear over and over again in newspapers and on television, videos, shirts, posters, mugs, and banners held aloft by Muslim students on Western campuses and Muslim mobs throughout the Arab world.

Age Of The Reluctant Superhero

Ever since Superman touched down in that fictional Kansas field back in 1938, our comic book superheroes have tended to be stoic, self-confident and somewhat simple men. They bravely fight for “truth, justice and the American way,” and with their chiseled features and bulging chests, we just know our caped crusaders will always save the day.
