Precedent-Setting PresidentLast week President George W. Bush made more explicit than ever before his belief that the war Israel faces against Arab Islamic terrorism...
With Prime Minister Sharon's now planned unilateral disengagement from Gaza, Israel would openly reward Palestinian terrorism and simultaneously begin to codify its own incremental disappearance.
Internet hoaxes are the bane of any editor's existence. Not a day goes by without the arrival of several e-mails breathlessly announcing either some horrible occurrence no sane person ever heard of, or some patently unbelievable piece of news -- unbelievable to persons who employ even the slightest bit of common sense, that is.
As to which John Kerry we should believe on Israel just look at whom he wants to deal with when it comes to defending his own country.
The idea of individual liberty (non-intrusive government) has fallen by the wayside among modern liberals in favor of a belief that the state has a duty to do good.
How can it be that an inheritor (a spiritual leader no less) of Judaism, the religion that brought to humankind the awareness of a single, unique G-d, has such issues with prayer?
The president's war against the despots in Iraq and Afghanistan has had many encouraging consequences, as it convinced Libya and Iran, both enemies of the State of Israel, to come clean about their advanced programs for nuclear and chemical weapons.
Dear Professor R,You claim that it is unfair of people to accuse you of being anti-Israel, and all the more so of being an anti-Semite.

So it appears the allegations - many of them made by former colleagues - were spot on after all. Jack Kelley, at one time USA Today's star reporter, had this rather unfortunate habit of fabricating events and, apparently, entire stories.
While it might still be possible for some to pretend that Palestinian Authority leader Yassir Arafat's Fatah movement is a peace partner, no sane or honest person can harbor the same illusion about Hamas.
Attempts to coddle them in the hope that they will finally "get it" and cut themselves free of Middle Age barbarism are naive.
