Following the Six Day War, UN Resolution 242 called on Israel to withdraw ''from territories occupied in the recent conflict,'' while affirming Israel's ''right to live in peace within secure and recognized boundaries.''
Jimmy's 'Final Solution'Your Dec. 5 front page article on Jimmy Carter's speech in Geneva neglected to mention his most chilling sentence.'Had I been elected...
Are some conservatives willing to sleep with the devil in order to fight pro-gay legislation? An exclusive report by Evan Gahr on www.JewishWorldReview.com makes the charge that "prominent religious conservatives - Jews, Catholics and Evangelical Christians - are allied with a radical Islamic group to stop gay marriage."
As Americans, we Jews share with our fellow countrymen (more or less) certain portions of the annual "holiday period." Extending from the secular holidays of Thanksgiving to New Years, this span imposes on all the United States the breathless rhythm of a machine. Noisy and relentless, it is a rhythm associated in the popular imagination with enhanced reverence and spirituality, but in reality it produces a decidedly opposite effect.
By returning to my childhood and investing more in toothpaste and less in candy, I could now boast uninterrupted rows of healthy white teeth.
Recently Sharon engineered the most devious tactic yet to disrupt the peace process. He proposed expelling Arafat from Ramallah.
In a recent opinion piece in the Jerusalem Post, Sarah Honig, one of the paper's bettercolumnists, raised the question of whether Israel's Left should be regarded as stupid orcrazy.
Remove Settlements NowI agree with those people who say that settlements should be uprooted. I also agree that Arabs and Jews cannot live together...
A disturbing media trend blames Israeli policy for the Islamist war on Western civilization. The recent coordinated bombings against British targets in Istanbul, occurring just days after the dual bombings of Istanbul synagogues, make the Islamic terrorist message brutally clear: their targets are the Jewish people and Western democratic civilization.

Each time I get on an airplane, I am struck by contradictions. We are a species that can take tons of heavy metal and transform it into an instrument of travel, transporting millions of passengers at very high speeds from one place to another. At the same time, we are required to take off our shoes before being allowed to board the plane, not for reasons of civilized comfort, but rather to ensure that we are not about to destroy the aircraft.
But as those in attendance soon discovered the problem with honoring such people is that there may be a good reason why they've never dipped into their fat wallets to help poor Jews or to defend the Jewish state: They don't really care very much about us.
American leaders of both parties for half a century have agreed that Israel's right to exist is not a negotiating position, is not an issue to be haggled over at anything misleading called a "peace conference."
