If you're a liberal who can't stomach President Bush's constant references to God; if you clench your fists every time the president refers to America's religious heritage; if you fear the imminent imposition of a Christian theocracy whenever Mr. Bush speaks of how the country has been divinely blessed - if any or all of this describes you more or less to a tee, then you're sure to have conniptions reading this passage from a certain wartime commander-in-chief's Inaugural message:
One of the unexpected dividends of our coming on aliya 20 and 30 years ago is the practically 0% rate of intermarriage of our grandchildren.
Almost everything that most people "know" about Tu-b'Shvat is totally wrong and completely false.
The UK was not the only power helping the Mufti in 1936. The USSR-sponsored Communist Party of Palestine also did its part.
Does that mean Jewish and other religious groups that support charities that are at least partly subsidized by the government have an obligation to oppose tax cuts?
It should not pass without notice that the contributions to tsunami relief of fellow Muslim nations, particularly the oil-rich Arab states, were amongst the lowest.

Stunned at the sudden outburst, the voice of a very insulted secretary general came across loud and clear.
Does the right to act symbolically belong to those who garner a larger audience to back their intense arguments?
It seems like such a long time ago that lefty writers were pushing the line that not only is there no liberal bias in the media, but in fact it's conservatives who have a disproportionate influence on the public discourse. Actually, it's been a mere couple of years since liberals tried making that preposterous case, largely as a reaction to former CBS News correspondent Bernard Goldberg's surprise bestseller Bias, an insider's account of how liberal assumptions and prejudices shape the way the mainstream media present the news.
There seems to be a whole group of people who have little or no knowledge of early aliyah from America, but who insist on making ridiculous statements about us.
Whatever Happened To Modesty?I do not understand what is going on with klal Yisrael. Every few weeks we hear of a new tumult -...

"Paper Clips," a documentary filmed over two years, is the important story of an educational initiative, begun in October 1998, that evolved into something greater and unexpected when a student in the Holocaust course at Whitwell asked the question that we might all ask: "What is six million?

Since 1994, Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby has devoted a column every December to highlighting the year's most egregious examples of liberal hate speech. Jacoby describes 2004 as "another year in which liberals engaged in, and mostly got away with, grotesque slanders and slurs about conservatives - the kind of poisonous rhetoric that should be beyond the pale in a decent society."
