The only problem is that the humanitarian group that will receive the lion's share of the aid is one of the most thoroughly politicized and terrorist-infiltrated organizations in the world.

An Upside-Down View Of Victims And Victimizers

In these modern times, there are plenty of Jewish leftists who ask how we wronged our enemies and what we can do to further abase ourselves before them.

To Understand The Middle East, Read This Book

People also often ask me why people like President Bush and Condoleezza Rice don't understand the dynamics of the Middle East. My guess is that neither of them has ever read this book.

A Brief And Shining Moment Of Cultural Literacy

Ozick did not say so, but this is similar to what Anne Frank's father, Otto, and the various people who worked on her diary and on the play about her, also did.

The True Infrastructure Of Hamas

Since the latest Arab attacks on the streets of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, the fashionably operative counter terrorism strategy in Israel has focused on "smashing the infrastructure of Hamas."

The Old Shtetl Lipno

There is evidence of Jewish presence in Lipno as early as the 18th century.

Walt’s Paper Trail

Judging from the shocked reaction among right-wing bloggers to a paper on U.S.-Israel relations written by professors Stephen Walt of Harvard and John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago and issued this month by Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, one would think the paper’s authors were a couple of unknowns with no discernible paper trail.

Court-Sanctioned Bigotry Against Our Children

The Leader We Pray For

In the pantheon of insults and degradations that Israel and its ambassadors have suffered, this hardly tops the list.

The Persecution Of Israeli Heroes By Israeli Academic Leftists

In the campaign in the UK to organize an academic boycott of Israeli universities, led by the British Association of University Teachers (AUT), it turned out that University of Haifa faculty member Ilan Pappe was the driving force, seeking to create a boycott of his own university. That campaign ultimately fizzled and failed.

A Seder In Saddam’s Palace: Reflections of an Orthodox Soldier Home from Iraq

Due to the nature of the work in which I was engaged, I am unable to provide details of what I did for the army in Iraq.

Shattering The Myth Of Mad Jewish Scientists

While these hoary tales circulate even in respectable Arab and Persian circles, what is overlooked is the role Jews have played in the eradication of some of the most deadly diseases that afflict Jews and non-Jews alike.

Esther And Agunot: Contemporary Lessons From An Ancient Story

The key to solving the dilemma lies, for the most part, with the policies of teachers of Jewish law and the rabbinic courts.

Letters To The Editor

To Err Is HumanPlease allow me to use this space to apologize to readers for my faux pas in my Purim front-page essay ("Purim:...

For the moment, fears of a nuclear war in the Middle East remain focused narrowly and correctly on Iran. In the coming months, before that country is able to deploy a fully operational nuclear capability, Israel will have to preemptively destroy essential parts of the Iranian nuclear infrastructure.

Vishkov

There is no definitive information on when Jews first came to Vishkov, but at the turn of the 20th century, the cemetery was the final resting place of at least four generations.

Scratch A Leftist…

Jay Bennish, the Colorado teacher who told his class that the U.S. “is probably the single most violent nation on planet earth” and that President Bush’s State of the Union speech “sound[ed] a lot like the things that Adolf Hitler used to say,” was given a relatively free ride by the national news media.

The War for Peace and Democracy

Over the past four years, other free nations have risen in the broader Middle East. Across that region, the political dialogue has been transformed - and politicians, scholars, students, and men and women from every walk of life are talking about freedom, equal rights, and accountable institutions of government.

Purim: Agony and Ecstasy

Paradoxically, Baruch Mordechai's physique was at odds with his state of mind. He was of tall and powerful build.
