What’s Good About Amy Goodman?

Award-winning journalist Amy Goodman, as she never tires telling audiences all over the country, is "a Jewish American, the granddaughter of an Orthodox rabbi and the great-granddaughter of a chassidic rabbi." She also happens to be a promoter of anti-Semites and anti-Zionists of nearly every stripe.

Letters To The Editor

There are, or should be, watchdogs to monitor the genuineness of gestures, to guard against the proverbial wolf in sheep's clothing.

Israel Freeing Arab Terrorists And Surrendering Jewish Land Living Precariously In The Delirium Of...

Writing of the Jews as a "people of solitaries," E.M. Cioran, the most dazzling French philosophical voice since Paul Valery, observes of the Jewish "nation" that this people, "...unsuited to the complacencies of despair, bypassing its age-old fatigue and the conclusions imposed by fate, lives in the delirium of expectation, determined not to learn a lesson from its humiliations...."

A Peek At The Mailbag

The Monitor's column of Jan. 21 ("That Old-Time Religion") brought howls of indignation from several self-identified liberals, none more entertaining than Elaine Jacobowitz from somewhere in New Jersey.

The winner of the Monitor's first Henry Schwarzschild Award for Most Offensive Comments by a Jew in the Public Spotlight goes to Uri Avnery, the granddad of Israel's hard-core Left.

Israel Releasing Arab Terrorists – Again

It is a familiar story. Israel, with nary a hint of meaningful reciprocity (reinforcing standing government policy of "Land For Nothing"), releases Palestinian terrorist prisoners. This time, in fact, Prime Minister Sharon even threw in amnesty for terrorists not yet apprehended.
