All The Troubles Of The Middle East In One Little Country

Sarah Stern and Kyle Shideler
Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

There is a country in the Middle East accused of conducting a brutal decades-long occupation. A country where a blockade causes starvation among a civilian refugee population. A country that violently cracks down on all opposition and shoots into crowds of protestors but receives substantial financial aid from the United States as an ally in the War on Terror even as it undermines our war efforts by pursuing its own agenda.

A Linkage Still Unrecognized: Palestinian Statehood and Jihadist Terror

Louis Rene Beres
Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

In these pages, I have written occasionally about dangerous cartographies. Oddly, even now, the so-called road map to peace will not go away quietly. If implemented, President Barack Obama’s plan for a “Two-State Solution” in the Middle East will sorely degrade both U.S. and Israeli security. This is because the twisted roadmap to Palestinian statehood still misses a decidedly crucial understanding:Jihadist terror has little to do with territory or politics or military strategy or tactics. In essence, it is a ritualistic and longstanding expression of religious sacrifice.

Is Beit Shammai In Ascendency?

Cheryl Kupfer
Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

Way back in the “good old days” in Jerusalem, before the Jews were exiled, singles looked forward to the 15th day of Av, known as Tu B’Av. On this day, unmarried girls and boys had the opportunity to pair off and become couples. The girls, all dressed in white and in a way that none could tell who came from wealth or poverty, would dance in front of the young men, who would then choose the one who caught his eye and marry her.

WASHINGTON – Opposition to a proposed Israeli conversion bill is mounting, from the U.S. Congress to the Israeli prime minister.

Israel and the Liberal Dilemma

Uri Kaufman
Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

“It’s been a long time since American Jewry has been [so] shaken,” declared the Israeli newspaper Haaretz in its July 9 Magazine cover story. Judging from the volume of chatter thundering across the upper firmament of the media heavens, this is no exaggeration.

At The Rebbe’s Side: On the 20th Yahrzeit of Rabbi Jacob J. Hecht

Berel Jacobs
Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

Many people knew him as Rabbi Hecht. His brothers called him Yank. To most of us he was J.J. – the man who, year after year, we saw standing at the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s side for hours, no matter the weather, at the Lag B’Omer parade.

No Tears For Former Klansman Byrd

Rabbi Philip Lefkowitz
Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

Senator Robert Byrd, Democrat of West Virginia, died recently. The other day I saw a clip of him singing “Amazing Grace.” The sincerity in his voice was unmistakable. And why not? That hymn is his only saving grace. For Byrd found his faith in the Baptist church, which teaches that all sin can be washed away “in the blood of Christ.” It is divine grace and not good works that rights the wrongs perpetrated against one’s fellow human beings.

Spending and Investing

Edwin Schild
Thursday, July 15th, 2010

Francine has been coming to therapy for about a month. Her parents brought her due to problems and conflicts she was experiencing boat home, school and in the community. Like many teens, Francine did not see the value of therapy and felt the problems were only her parents’ issues. Besides, if she needed to talk to anyone, she would speak with her friends.
