The Roots Of Resentment

Islam is as much a political system as a religion it being understood that both politics and belief are part and parcel of a larger whole.

The Abu Ghraib Times

How obsessed has The New York Times been with Abu Ghraib? Between May 1 and May 27 the paper featured the prisoner abuse scandal on its front page virtually without letup and almost always above the fold.

Rav Avigdor Miller: His Years as Mashgiach

What follows below should be read in light of what Orthodoxy in the United States was during the forties, fifties and sixties.

Israeli Counterterrorism In Gaza

Televised images of Israel's recent defensive operation in Gaza suggest cruelty and indiscriminacy. In fact, exactly the opposite is true. By deliberately placing young Arab children in the front lines of armed mobs that march with lethal intent upon Israeli soldiers, it is Palestinian leaders who openly commit violations of the law of war.

Prisoner Abuse Scandal Shouldn’t Obscure Larger Issues

5 Tammuz 5764 – June 23, 2004
It is of singular importance to remember that under Saddam Hussein - in the very same prison now being scrutinized by the American authorities - rape, murder, cutting off of limbs, and whatever tortures the ingenuity of a technologically advanced society could devise, was a daily occurrence.

In Case You Missed It…

Kerry Would Follow Powell: Once again the John Kerry presidential campaign has provided a disquieting glimpse into the kind of thinking that to Democrats equals strong support for Israel. Appearing over the weekend on CNN's "Capital Gang," senior Kerry campaign adviser Tad Devine stated that "the difference" between Kerry and President Bush regarding the Israeli-Palestinian imbroglio "is understood very clearly. When Bush became president of the United States, he turned his back on the Middle East peace process....Until we have a president who is capable of exercising presiden tial leadership...the United States will not be a player in the peace process."

To Honor A Fallen Son Of Israel

Sara Newman announced that she didn't want one soldier to injure even a fingernail in recovering her son's ear, but nevertheless the army sent soldiers to search.

Understanding Child Murderers: The Unique Barbarism Of Palestinian Terrorism

What sort of "freedom fighters" applaud the close-range murder of a pregnant Israeli woman and her four young daughters? There is only one correct answer: Palestinian terrorists. There is, in fact, no other insurgent movement on this persistently bleeding planet that can begin to compare with Arab/Islamic terror. From the standpoint of sheer barbarism, of a primal evil that mocks any human pretension to being a civilized "resistance," no other movement even comes close.

Jews On The Precipice

28 Sivan 5764 – June 16, 2004
The propaganda war against Israel and against Jews is staggering, both visually and linguistically.
