A Crusade We Must Win

9 Elul 5764 – August 25, 2004
With the United Nations on Tehran's case, the only reasonable hope for preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons rests with the Israeli Air Force.

The Abominable Izzy Stone

June 18 marked the fifteenth anniversary of the passing of I.F. Stone, who upon his death was eulogized by mainstream journalists for his supposed independence and iconoclasm and who still remains an iconic figure to many in the media. This despite (or perhaps because of) his long record as a vocal enthusiast of Soviet-style socialism and merciless basher of Israel long before the sport assumed widespread popularity.

When You Can’t Say ‘Muslim’

Was Lacey afraid to describe the perpetrators as Arab Muslims or did his editor delete the word Muslim?

Standing Steadfast With Israel

God is not neutral in the affairs of man. He is on the side of justice.

Human Chain

Two events that seemed to fit the days before Tisha B'Av happened recently.

Project Daniel: Israel’s Preemption And Nuclear Warfighting Doctrine (Part Eight)

My prior column in this special series dealt with the existential threat to Israel. To best deal with this multifaceted threat, Project Daniel recommended to Prime Minister Sharon that Israel do everything possible to prevent a coalition of enemy states from coming into possession of mass destruction weapons, and that this effort be undertaken while Israel continues with its longstanding policy of nuclear ambiguity.

Madame Gulag’s New Gig

There has always been a hard-line Stalinist communist party or two at the margins of Israeli politics.

The Cantonists: The Jewish Children's Army

On August 26, 1827, Tsar Nicholas I published the Recruitment Decree calling for conscription of Jewish boys between the ages of twelve and twenty-five.

Kerry, Kennedy And Isaiah

2 Elul 5764 – August 18, 2004
Kerry had not plagiarized Kennedy; he was actually saying something that was virtually the opposite of what the patron saint of the modern Democratic Party had sought to convey.

Is Israel Winning The War On Suicide Bombers?

The question raised by the statistics is whether the sense of a lull in Palestinian suicide bombers is an optical illusion, or has Israel succeeded in devastating the terror groups so that they can no longer strike out at innocent citizens.

Respect Dissent, Reject Invective Toward Sharon

The media have created a perception that there is overwhelming Israeli support for the unilateral dismantling of settlements and have marginalized critics as extremist rejectionists, but a new Geocartography poll paints a different picture.

Of Jews And Fences

Yes, it was not so very long ago that they watched, unconcerned, as my loved ones and your loved ones were gassed and burned behind those fences.

A Fulfilling Jewish Life, Far From The Madding Crowd

As the reader can see, there's plenty to keep us busy here. But Portland has a long and rich Jewish history.

Pro-Kerry Media, Anti-Israel Moore

Maybe you still believe that claims of a biased liberal media are nothing but the deranged muttering of paranoid conservatives. And it could very well be that you refuse even to entertain the possibility that the mainstream media's coverage of this year's presidential campaign is driven to a large extent by a single-minded determination to send George W. Bush home to Texas and see to it that John F. Kerry is elected the 44th president of the United States.

The Meaning of Jewish Existence

Project Daniel: The Existential Threat To Israel (Part Seven)

My previous column in the Project Daniel series dealt with Israel's survival problem in a world of increasing chaos and anarchy. Recalling apt images of the Irish poet Yeats, of a world wherein "the blood-dimmed tide is loosed," and where "the ceremony of innocence is drowned," we must now quickly acknowledge that certain current threats to Israel are profoundly existential.

Political Pulpit-Phobia

25 Av 5764 – August 11, 2004
The critics of the Bush effort were right that nonprofits and religious groups ought not to pretend to non-partisanship on their tax forms while endorsing candidates.
