Foolish To Frightening

A couple of recent items from the Web, noted by the Monitor with more than passing interest: Want a prime example of that which passes for liberal thinking in 2003? Take a gander at this bit of swill penned by Anne Lamott, enlightened columnist for the impossibly anti-Bush web magazine Salon.com (note Ms. Lamott's moral arrogance coupled with an inability to make distinctions - always a lethal combination):

Saddam, Bush And The Rebbe: The Kabbalah of Basra

As we all remember the first Persian Gulf war ended only a few weeks after it began.

“F” Stands For Feckless – And For French

The French even scuttled their own fleet rather than turn it over to the Americans so that they could not use it against the Germans.

The Forgotten Middle East Refugees

Who created the circumstances that brought about the displacement and the suffering that continues for all these years? And who keeps these fires burning without respite?

Arab Terror’s Nazi Origins

The Mufti attempted to implement the Nazi "Pejani Plan" which called for the extermination of the Christian Serbs and which the Nazis eventually abandoned.

Democrats, Then And Now: A Primer In Hypocrisy

Today I weep for my country. No more is the image of America one of strong, yet benevolent peacekeeper....

Distortions and Double Standards: The New York Times and Israel

The Times also likes to devote ample publicity to anti-Zionist Jews.

Mr. Blair Comes To Town

British Prime Minister Tony Blair is on his way to Washington to meet with President Bush. As is being widely reported, his agenda includes the final disarming of Iraq, post-war rebuilding of Iraq and last, but certainly not least, implementation of the so-called "road map" to Middle East peace. There is a lot more at stake in this meeting than might be imagined.

Israel?s Leftists Kindled Arab Fire

The main motivating force behind the American left has always been anti-Americanism,
and this has never been so apparent as during the current war against terrorism. While this is well
recognized, what is far less commonly known is that Israel has its own analogue to these people.
The Israeli left is as anti-Israel and anti-Jewish as the American left is anti-American.

The Buchanan Files (II)

The support for Nazi war criminals repeatedly voiced by Patrick J. Buchanan (examples of which were offered in this space last week) is but one harsh note in the syndicated columnist's ongoing primal scream against Jews and Israel.

Moshiach Bin Laden

Abraham was a man who loved and feared G-d and had the character trait of self-sacrifice.

The Buchanan Files (I)

As he did back in 1990 and 1991, Patrick Buchanan is once again fanning the flames of anti-Semitism with his allegations that an American administration is calling the nation to arms at the urging of Jews on behalf of the Jewish state.

The Jewish List Of The World's Shortest Books

I suppose everyone has seen lists of the ?World's Shortest Books.? Since I think we Jews
could use our own special list, I have, as a public service and in the spirit of Purim, prepared the
first annual Official Jewish List of the World's Shortest Books.

Candles On The Carmel

''We are three blocks away; you will be home in a minute.''
The taxi driver nudges me rudely into semi-consciousness. I try
to shake the fog from my head. I am still half asleep, staring
through the window at the Christmas lights. As consciousness
slowly seeps through, something here is out of place. Why is there
a giant Christmas tree on display in Budapest when it is months
after Christmas? I shake my head some more. No, it is not
Budapest. I left Budapest six hours ago and have been flying all
night. I must have succumbed to exhaustion on the ride up to
Haifa in the taxi from the airport.

The President Speaks To The Nation

A presidential address to the nation that has come into the Monitor's hands:

He Walked With Kings And Rulers: Remembering David Horowitz

That beautiful smile, warm and sincere, which proceeded from a transcendent mastery of pain and loss, both personal and that of his people, first beamed at the beginning of the 20th century.

Hooray For Hollywood

This week the Monitor is intent on having a bit of fun, though the subject is a serious one - the tendency of actors to embrace left-wing causes in general and the current antiwar movement in particular, all the while spouting the sort of inanities that only a New York Times editorial writer would take even half seriously.

Settlements Not The Root Problem

The real reason why peace has not been achieved between Israel and the Palestinians is that many Palestinians - and other Arabs - still prefer that Israel not exist as a Jewish state in the Middle East.

Useful Idiots On Parade

These negative traits were precisely what Lenin counted on when he described those whom he could manipulate to commit mass murder and spread totalitarianism as 'useful idiots.'

McPaper’s Blind Spot On Anti-Israel Terrorism

Let me count the ways that USA Today euphemized terrorists and their terrorist missions and organizations in a single story:

Symposium: The Jews and President Bush

In the last year there has been a wave of anti-Semitism in the United States and abroad coming from the left.

Anti-War Protesters? Grand Marching Song

We are progressive, caring, socially advanced, egalitarian and freedom-loving
progressives. We really care about people. We think peace is wonderful and war is evil. We are
marching to prevent the American imperialists from mistreating Iraqis. We oppose American
hegemony. We think George W. Bush is a mad cowboy. We love Palestinians and want them to
be free.

No Media Bias? Check Out Fletcher, Jennings

If you've ever thought you detected a certain anti-Israel bias in the reportage of NBC's longtime Israel bureau chief Martin Fletcher, there's good reason: Despite being Jewish, married to an Israeli and the father of three Israeli sons, Fletcher considers Israel worse than South Africa in the days of apartheid and won't even say whether he thinks the creation of the State of Israel was a good thing.

Who Wants To Be An Anti-Semite?

The show has an interesting premise. People have to hide their hatred of Jews by disguising their actions as something else.

Left-Wing Hate Fest: What The Media Didn’t Tell You About The New York Anti-War...

"We don't care if you [Bush] put forth Condoleezza Rice or Colin Powell," he continued. "They do not represent the black community."
