There have been frequent comparisons of late between the United States and the Roman Empire. How valid do you think those comparisons are?

Do we really want to put ourselves in the position where those petty issues we love to debate are finally decided upon?

America, Great Britain and Western Europe elevated the quality of human life exponentially while the situation of those oppressed by Islamist fascism was that of abject misery.

This past week, the Anti Defamation League went public with a criticism of "mainline" Arab-American groups for failing to speak out against anti-Semitism and terrorist acts committedagainst Jews by Palestinians and other Arabs. The ADL point that such failure only tends tolegitimatize and ultimately to encourage such behavior is surely a valid one.

The owners of Starbucks have not disclosed why they are closing all of their stores in Israel, but they are indeed closing. The prevalent Israeli media take is that there was a major management miscalculation in concentrating on Tel Aviv which has, as described in The Jerusalem Post, "a developed cafe culture with European roots" which worked against the acceptance of Starbucks. There is also talk that Israeli consumers tended to disdain the quality of Starbucks coffee.

There is growing fear that the anti-religious ferment in Israel reflected in the recent startling electoral victory of Tommy Lapid's Shinui Party also spawned the horrific arson burning of five Sifrei Torah. Police are still investigating the cause of the fire, but arson seems certain. Although news coverage of the incident has been sparse, reports that have appeared have hinted that the perpetrators were not Arab terrorists, but rather anti-religious Jewish Israelis.

Several weeks ago, Rabbi Mordechai Willig went public with an apology to a young man over the treatment meted out to him ten years ago by a Beth Din headed by Rabbi Willig. The young man had brought charges against Rabbi Baruch Lanner and was severely chastised by the tribunal following their consideration of the matter.

Ever since 9/11, President Bush's constant refrain has been an uncompromising effort at eliminating terror and its infrastructure around the world. Plainly, this has not been the product of a Pollyannish notion of refashioning the world in the American image, but rather of a hard-nosed evaluation of what it will take to minimize the threat from fundamentalists around the world bent on America's destruction.

Perhaps the fastest way to make sense of this book by Avram Bornstein, an untenured "anthropologist" at John Jay College of Criminal Justice within the City University of New York system, is to pay attention to how he uses quotation marks. The book routinely refers to Israel as an apartheid regime, with no quotation marks. And it routinely refers to Palestinian "terrorism" with them. Need we say more? We hope the tenure committee at John Jay is paying attention.

A Place At The SederHis Eminence HaRav Mordecai Eliyahu, the former chief rabbi of Israel, has given his blessing to a proposal by Rabbi Shlomo Aviner calling on all Jews to set a place at the table for Jonathan Pollard on Seder night. His empty chair symbolizes the longing and hope of the nation to […]

The Monitor will pay tribute next week to Michael Kelly, the exemplary journalist and true friend of Israel who died so tragically in Iraq. This week, however, we take a look at some choice remarks made over the course of the past 20 years by South African Arch-bishop Desmond Tutu, Kelly's opposite in just about every way imaginable.

On several occasions, we have taken Rabbi Saul Berman to task over the distinctively secularist bent of his organization called EDAH, which bills itself as the intellectual engine ofModern Orthodoxy. Thus, when he convened an EDAH conference two years ago, purportedly to do no less than chart the future course of the Jewish community, it was driven by social scientists of various disciplines, such as political scientists, sociologists and political and social activists.

As it turns out, there really is linkage between what is going on in Iraq and the Intifada. Not the kind of linkage Yasir Arafat, Tony Blair and the European Union are suggesting - that thenecessary next step after "regime change" in Iraq is setting an arbitrary timeline for the establishment of a Palestinian state.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan was a genuine intellectual, but also a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat who revelled in partisan politics. He was a true iconoclast, but delighted in the trappingsand traditions of the Senate. He was a serious and original analyst of the dynamics of human development – at times seeming to be able to predict the future – but […]

Exposing The TimesThe expose by Tom Gross that you carried on your front page last week (“Distortions andDouble Standards: How the New York Times Routinely Misreports Israel”) makes an iron-clad case against the journalism of what he calls the world’s most important paper. Gross’s work is especially important as the mainstream media by and large […]

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):
