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.

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.

“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.

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.
