If you have a lot of money, people will never say you're crazy. Only poor people are crazy.
But the fact is that now the Americans are on their own. They chose it to be that way. And they have to live with it.
Where's The Outrage?Kudos to Rabbi Yehuda Levin for his on-target op-ed article regarding the silence of Orthodox organizations as the homosexuals prepare to take...
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."
How can it be that El Al uses part of our airfare to fund their domestic partnership programs for homosexual crew members with not a word on the subject from our organizations?
George Bush has a Texan approach to people that we associate with the straight-shooter. He is not interested in flimflam, small talk, or deception.
A Vote For BushGeorge Rubin's letter last week ("Second Term For W?") responding to Craig Bergman ("Don't Prove Baker Right," Letters, October 31) was...

What then should we do?
The question beckons, how would Syria use the Golan Heights if it had them back?
But once these barriers are broken, Jewish politicians and others who trade on their shaky genetic ties with the Jewish people need to remember that they're on their own. And that is a lesson that some of us often forget.
On the anniversary of his death, it is now more necessary than ever to explode the myth of Yitzhak Rabin.
Why would a Hillel rabbi be promoting such a person, encouraging Jewish students to feel sympathetically toward him?
Ditzy Dowd: Kudos to Andrew Sullivan for exposing the hypocrisy of Maureen Dowd, who, along with fellow New York Times op-ed columnists Nicholas Kristof and Paul Krugman, eats, sleeps and breathes hatred of George W. Bush.
Nothing, say the nations of the world. Nothing - other than more negotiating, more talking.
Shlomo Ben Ami was Israel's foreign minister under Ehud Barak and served as the lead Israeli negotiator at the Camp David summit in 2000.

The new head of state in Israel took office some time after his mentor was assassinated.
During the summer of 2002 I wrote hopefully in The Jewish Press about Sulam, a special education network in Jerusalem.
