Alan Dershowitz: Media Matters Hurts Obama

Recent comments by Media Matters' Senior Foreign Policy Fellow MJ Rosenberg are the most recent incarnation of the age-old accusation against Jews of disloyalty to their own country. It finds its roots in the Biblical villains Pharaoh and Hamen who accused the Jews of Egypt and Persia of disloyalty. It was a central tenet of Nazism, Stalinism and other anti-Semitic regimes. Today, it is the mantra of David Duke, Patrick Buchanan, Reverend Jeremiah Wright and Jew haters of every race, religion and national origin.

Heartbreak: Iran’s “A Separation” Beats Israeli “Footnote” at the Oscars

In pre-Oscar television interviews, actors Shlomo Bar-Aba and Lior Ashkenazi, stars of the Israeli Oscar nominated "Footnote," which last night became the tenth Israeli nominee to not win the big prize – were telling anyone who would listen that it was definitely going to be Iran this year. And they were right. The Hollywood elite which decides these things gave the nod to Iran's "A Separation," from what we hear a fantastic family drama, and Director Asghar Farhadi has taken home the Oscar for best foreign language film. While Director Joseph Cedar, an observant Jew, went home empty handed for the second time in his career. Bummer.

In-Fighting at Brooklyn Food Co-op over Israel Boycott

If you have nothing better to do and you're member of the Park Slope Food Co-op, you should try to attend their Monday night meeting this week, when a group within the mostly organic-food loving, bicycle riding, inoffensive crowd of lefty New Yorkers, will be attempting to add the food co-op to the campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel. Bring your own tomatoes.

Alan Dershowitz: Friends Seminary Plays Bait and Switch on Anti-Semitism

The Friends Seminary of New York was unwilling to cancel the scheduled appearance of Gilad Atzmon, even after learning that he was a virulent anti-Semite who questions the Holocaust but believes that it may be true that Jews kill Christians to use their blood for religious purposes. But they have canceled my appearance because they didn't like the tone of a private letter that I wrote to them that was critical of the Headmaster's failure to comply with his promises.

Police: Arab Attack on IDF Soldiers – Case of Mistaken Identity

Livni Stakes Political Future on Yeshiva Students’ IDF Service

The first Israeli pol to be taking a ride on the back of the Supreme Court's decision to kill the Tal Law is stating her motivation bluntly: "I'm sick and tired of hearing that it's impossible to implement the law, because the Haredim or the Arabs don't want to join." Being sick and tired can be a recipe for political success in Israel – provided you don't face a field of multiple opponents who are all equally disgruntled.

MK Danon: Stop Arab MKs from Joining Qatar Anti-Israel Conference

Qatar is going all out to assemble a major conference next week, with 350 representatives from Arab and Islamic countries, who will discuss "the legal status of Jerusalem before and after the Israeli occupation." The funny thing is that Palestinian Knesset members who will be spewing their venom at the conference, decrying Israeli crimes against humanity, yada, yada, yada, will be the only democratically elected officials. Is this a fun region or what?
