In The Matter Of The United States Of America Against Abu...

23 Iyyar 5763 – May 25, 2003
The Palestinian Authority's call for the United States to release captured Achille Lauro thug Abu Abbas is not only the height of cynicism but is also a virtual declaration that they are free to target anyone and anything, at a time and place of their choosing, in the name of Palestinian nationalism.

The New State Terrorism

Following the first Gulf War, which left Saddam Hussein in power, most everyone outside of Hussein and his fellow travelers in the Arab world acknowledged the necessity of imposing sanctions against a Hussein-led Iraq to force him to disarm. Unfortunately, although the sanctions were aimed at Hussein, it was undeniable that the sanctions would also visit great suffering on the Iraqi population, especially since Hussein could be expected to - and did - divert whatever resources were available to himself and the effort to maintain his power.

A Call For Jewish Leadership: It’s Later Than We Think

The president's apparent change of heart is more than puzzling.

The Nazism Of Abu Mazen

How many Arab leaders today embrace these bizarre and sickening Nazi-type conspiracy theories?

Remembering Michael Kelly

Michael Kelly was a brilliant writer and editor who coincidentally happened to be an American patriot and a strong supporter of Israel - a combination not commonly found inthe circles in which he traveled.

The Emergence Of Oslo Revisionism

Of all the developments in Israel over the past couple of years, I find the very scariest and most dangerous to be the emergence of a new form of historic revisionism that should becalled Oslo Revisionism. Like Holocaust revisionism, the fashionable term for Holocaust Denial, this is a nefarious attempt to rewrite history and invent a false narrative regarding the history of the Oslo peace process. It is just the latest manifestation of the totalitarian nature of Israel's Left.

War Leaves Left Exposed

Events in Iraq have forced the Monitor to put off until next week a column devoted to the late Michael Kelly. This week's offering is something of a meditation on liberals, America, the war, truth...call it the Monitor's way of thinking out loud.

Military Matters: An Interview With Victor Davis Hanson

8 Iyyar 5763 – May 9, 2003
There have been frequent comparisons of late between the United States and the Roman Empire. How valid do you think those comparisons are?

Do we really want to put ourselves in the position where those petty issues we love to debate are finally decided upon?

The End Of The Beginning?

America, Great Britain and Western Europe elevated the quality of human life exponentially while the situation of those oppressed by Islamist fascism was that of abject misery.

The Five Burnt Sifrei Torah

There is growing fear that the anti-religious ferment in Israel reflected in the recent startling electoral victory of Tommy Lapid's Shinui Party also spawned the horrific arson burning of five Sifrei Torah. Police are still investigating the cause of the fire, but arson seems certain. Although news coverage of the incident has been sparse, reports that have appeared have hinted that the perpetrators were not Arab terrorists, but rather anti-religious Jewish Israelis.

Time To Revisit The Get Law?

Several weeks ago, Rabbi Mordechai Willig went public with an apology to a young man over the treatment meted out to him ten years ago by a Beth Din headed by Rabbi Willig. The young man had brought charges against Rabbi Baruch Lanner and was severely chastised by the tribunal following their consideration of the matter.

No Time To Blink

Ever since 9/11, President Bush's constant refrain has been an uncompromising effort at eliminating terror and its infrastructure around the world. Plainly, this has not been the product of a Pollyannish notion of refashioning the world in the American image, but rather of a hard-nosed evaluation of what it will take to minimize the threat from fundamentalists around the world bent on America's destruction.

ADL Challenges Arab-American Indifference

This past week, the Anti Defamation League went public with a criticism of "mainline" Arab-American groups for failing to speak out against anti-Semitism and terrorist acts committedagainst Jews by Palestinians and other Arabs. The ADL point that such failure only tends tolegitimatize and ultimately to encourage such behavior is surely a valid one.

The Jihad of Avram Bornstein

Perhaps the fastest way to make sense of this book by Avram Bornstein, an untenured "anthropologist" at John Jay College of Criminal Justice within the City University of New York system, is to pay attention to how he uses quotation marks. The book routinely refers to Israel as an apartheid regime, with no quotation marks. And it routinely refers to Palestinian "terrorism" with them. Need we say more? We hope the tenure committee at John Jay is paying attention.
