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.
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.
Was Lacey afraid to describe the perpetrators as Arab Muslims or did his editor delete the word Muslim?
God is not neutral in the affairs of man. He is on the side of justice.
This thirty-year period saw the Jewish community in an unrelieved state of panic.
Two events that seemed to fit the days before Tisha B'Av happened recently.

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.
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.

As the reader can see, there's plenty to keep us busy here. But Portland has a long and rich Jewish history.
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 Torah is teaching us that if you wish to understand who the Jew is, you must seek the perspective of the non-Jew.
My previous column in the Project Daniel series dealt with Israel's survival problem in a world of increasing chaos and anarchy.
