One plausible explanation for this rigid evolutionary monotheism, though I think an incorrect one, is a fear that the children might come to believe in Creationism.

In its turn, the Palestinian street sees in Hamas, the "liberators" of Gaza, the agents of final victory over Israel and votes them into power.

If Only America Would Let Israel Win

One might expect this agony to follow on a crushing battlefield loss, but since 1945 that has usually not been the case.

The Thorny Issue Of Illegal Immigration

There must be a reliable database for employers to determine who is authorized to work - i.e., a better developed and protected Social Security number, eliminating the multiplicity of documents now allowed and easily falsified.

Gotham’s Very Own Muslim Firebrand

In a tightrope-walking statement, Bloomberg said, "I certainly don't agree" with the imam's view, "but the issue here is not do I agree with him, but does he have a right to say what he wants to say. At the same time, we have an obligation to ensure that city employees do not falsely represent their political statement as the official position of their agency."

Boro Park’s Night Of Shame And Disgrace

Whatever the flashpoint, it is inexcusable for mobs of teens to set bonfires and descend on a police cruiser, breaking windows and threatening officers inside.

Israel And Its Enemies: Future Wars And Forceful Options (Conclusion)

Israel's preemptive action could still be entirely law enforcing, even if Iran and the Arab enemies of Israel were not in a declared condition of belligerence with the Jewish state. The customary right of anticipatory self-defense has its modern origins in the Caroline incident, which concerned the unsuccessful rebellion of 1837 in Upper Canada against British rule (a rebellion that aroused sympathy and support in the American border states). Following this case, the serious threat of armed attack has generally been taken to justify militarily defensive action.

The Old Shtetl Kiernozia

No details are available on the origins of the village of Kiernozia.

The Times’s Strange Potshot

It’s not exactly news that The New York Times editorial page detested Ronald Reagan. But who would have thought that seventeen years after the end of his presidency and nearly two years after his death the Times would still seek to denigrate Reagan’s legacy, on its news pages, in a manner that can only be described as petty and inappropriate?

The Islamization Of America

Perhaps he does have the right to say anything he pleases as a citizen; perhaps his loss of this right might also endanger us all.

The Election Everyone Lost

The Israeli election played out in the shadow of the Hamas victory and the creation of an armed Hamas-led fascist state and terrorist army positioned in the suburbs of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
