Yet another nail was banged last week into the coffin of Israeli democracy.
The victimization card is one of the more potent ones used by the neo-Nazis.
The influence of bloggers and their weblogs, already growing by leaps and bounds thanks to such polarizing controversies as the war in Iraq and such Internet-driven phenomena as the Howard Dean presidential campaign, reached new heights in October with the Gregg Easterbrook affair.
Don't Prove Baker RightA number of years ago it was alleged that James Baker, at the time the U.S. secretary of state under the...
On Rosh Hashana eve, at around 9:00 p.m. on September 26, a very heroic Palestinian "freedom fighter" knocked on the door of a trailer home in Negahot, where 30 religious families live quietly on two barren hilltops, and jubilantly murdered a seven-month-old girl.
A propaganda campaign was begun, claiming that the small country had committed 'war crimes' and violated international law.
In modern times, from the McCarthy hearings to the trial of O.J. Simpson, we've been reminded of the wounding power of words. Because of this, the two of us are very careful with the words we use, particularly words like "traitor" and "hypocrite."
Israel's political system is, in many ways, as liberal as the European liberal democracies and has, despite years of terrorism, managed to remain intact.
Better Use For F-15sThe Sharon government was justifiably praised by Jewish commentators for the symbolic flyover by three IAF F-15s over Auschwitz recently.Yet, these...
If Israel is ever destroyed, Yossi Beilin will have more than his fair share of responsibilityfor it, second only to Shimon Peres himself.

In an attempt to undermine the Israeli government, a group of failed Leftist politicians are

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.
Flickering LightAs a former fundamentalist Protestant I extend kudos to Ben Noach Roy Neal Grissom, who touched on many significant issues in his Oct....
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."
