On Fear And Living In Israel

20 Heshvan 5764 – November 14, 2003
I see the illuminated walls of the Old City of Jerusalem and I think of King David following G-d's instructions to establish this ironically named 'City of Peace' as the capital of the Jewish people.

No Choice But Victory

It is time for us in the Diaspora - who perhaps with the advantage of physical distance from events in the Middle East can look with more objectivity at the current situation - to demand of the leaders of the State of Israel that they stand by the principle of Never Again! that was uttered so forcefully in the wake of the Holocaust.

Ted Kennedy, Senate Boor

17 Heshvan 5764 – November 12, 2003
Sen. Ted Kennedy, a man whose behavior was once described by Time magazine as that of "a drunken, overage frat-house boor," has decided that the war in Iraq was nothing more than one giant scam. Kennedy told the Associated Press last month that "There was no imminent threat. This was made up in Texas, announced in January to the Republican leadership that war was going to take place and was going to be good politically. This whole thing was a fraud."

And Gabriel Spoke To Shimon…

Wesley The Weasel (II)

10 Heshvan 5764 – November 5, 2003
Last week's column on Wesley Clark drew letters of protest from several Clark boosters, one of whom castigated the Monitor for "an ad hominem attack with no substance on a distinguished general." All right, if it's substance you want, it's substance you'll get - though certainly not from candidate Clark, who thus far has shown very little of it.

The Day After

6 Heshvan 5764 – October 31, 2003
Before we gave Joseph's Tomb to the PLO, we were able to sneak out its blood-stained and torn paroches from his kever. Once more the coat of Yosef was stained and torn.
