The question raised by the statistics is whether the sense of a lull in Palestinian suicide bombers is an optical illusion, or has Israel succeeded in devastating the terror groups so that they can no longer strike out at innocent citizens.

Respect Dissent, Reject Invective Toward Sharon

As the reader can see, there's plenty to keep us busy here. But Portland has a long and rich Jewish history.

Pro-Kerry Media, Anti-Israel Moore

Maybe you still believe that claims of a biased liberal media are nothing but the deranged muttering of paranoid conservatives. And it could very well be that you refuse even to entertain the possibility that the mainstream media's coverage of this year's presidential campaign is driven to a large extent by a single-minded determination to send George W. Bush home to Texas and see to it that John F. Kerry is elected the 44th president of the United States.

The Meaning of Jewish Existence

Project Daniel: The Existential Threat To Israel (Part Seven)

My previous column in the Project Daniel series dealt with Israel's survival problem in a world of increasing chaos and anarchy. Recalling apt images of the Irish poet Yeats, of a world wherein "the blood-dimmed tide is loosed," and where "the ceremony of innocence is drowned," we must now quickly acknowledge that certain current threats to Israel are profoundly existential.

Political Pulpit-Phobia

The critics of the Bush effort were right that nonprofits and religious groups ought not to pretend to non-partisanship on their tax forms while endorsing candidates.

Saving Lives More Important Than Arab Inconvenience

There is a reason that Israel is building the security fence, maintaining check points, setting up road blocks, and striking at weapons factories. The reason is that Israel is at war.

Liberal Smarts – Or Lack Thereof?

How is it possible that during a military conflict catalyzed by the most violent attack against America since Pearl Harbor there could be such unparalleled denigration of a sitting U.S. president among academics?

Bush-Basher Nadler To UN: Help!

New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler is one of 13 Congressional Democrats now on record as believing that the United Nations - cesspool of corruption and hypocrisy, comfort station for thugs and dictators of every ideological stripe, breeding ground for anti-U.S. and anti-Israel sentiment - is better qualified than American officials to oversee the upcoming U.S. presidential election.

Caveat Emptor: What Journalists Really Think

But study after study shows that Rather, Jennings and Brokaw are wrong: the newsrooms of major media outlets are not filled with non-ideological 'common sense moderates,' nor do they reflect a diverse range of ideological viewpoints.

My Heart Unhinged

I've been a screenwriter in Hollywood for over twenty years. But the focus of my life is my family: my radiant wife, Karen, whom I have been in love with since I was ten years old, and my two daughters, who, thankfully, look like Karen.

Project Daniel: Israel’s Survival Amidst Growing Worldwide Anarchy (Part Six)

In the concluding paragraphs of our Project Daniel Final Report, Israel's Strategic Future, we identify a number of critical policy issues that need substantial further study. The first of these issues is described as "the growing anarchy in world affairs." What does it mean to live amidst such anarchy? What are the expected implications for secure and predictable international relations?

There You Go Again, Jimmy Carter

The adulation of suicide bombers and wild celebrations in Palestinian streets at the deliberate slaughter of innocents, so foreign to western sensibilities, can only be explained by such massive indoctrination.

Some critics claim that Noah is appearing before the Commission solely to boost sales of his newly released book, "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head."

Brando’s Branding

The death of the legendary actor Marlon Brando brings to mind an incident that tarred his reputation for years afterward and that serves to illustrate how certain Jewish organizations and their self-serving "spokesmen" risk trivializing the entire issue of anti-Semitism.

The Truth About ‘Palestinian Refugees’

Try to imagine what the world would be like if Israel had granted the "Palestinian refugees" who fled from Israel in 1948-49 the right to return to Israel.
