How Western Intellectual Values Have Gone Haywire

10 Elul 5773 – August 15, 2013

Admitting the Mistake of the Disengagement

8 Kislev 5773 – November 21, 2012

To Inform or Not to Inform – That is the Question

28 Elul 5772 – September 14, 2012
With all the bacteria a mouth is known to contain - and the possibility that it might contain bacteria or viruses that are very harmful to a vulnerable 8-day-old child while an adult carrier might not even be aware of it - it is not exactly rocket science to know that putting your mouth on an open wound is not a good idea.

Metzitza B’Peh: Infant Russian Roulette

16 Elul 5772 – September 3, 2012
I would be opposed to the government legislating against doing MbP. That it is considered so vital by so large a segment of Jewry combined by the low probability of a child ever contracting herpes moves me to oppose it. In this case I do feel that banning the procedure would be an unconstitutional impediment to freedom of religion. But that is not the law being proposed.

The Peace Business

28 Tammuz 5772 – July 17, 2012
The Israeli left is an alliance between Israeli and American oligarchs who would be perfectly happy with a country the size of Singapore, a city-state stretching across the Tel Aviv Metropolitan Area, a place with a bustling stock exchange, a lot of good restaurants and start up companies. A properly liberal place at peace with its Muslim neighbors, with gay bars side-by-side with mosques and experimental theaters putting on the latest revolutionary plays.

Rubin Reports: Does Power Moderate Radicals? Where’s the Proof?

20 Tammuz 5772 – July 10, 2012
Because of political reasons and especially due to the ideological monopoly of certain forces over Western institutions, most of the academics, analysts, journalists, and politicians who speak on these issues get away with pushing the moderation thesis. They are virtually never asked to provide proof. This wrong idea thus sets current U.S. policy and creates a great risk of future crisis, instability, repression, and severe damage to U.S. interests.

Why The Newsroom is Good News for Republicans

6 Tammuz 5772 – June 26, 2012
The Newsroom is Aaron Sorkin's sad attempt to win an argument by rewriting history and coming up with all the comebacks that his side couldn't think of two years ago. It's the sad and pathetic spectacle of an ideology creating its own fantasy version of its reality in which it won the argument.

Finland’s War on Free Speech

21 Sivan 5772 – June 11, 2012
Finland's Supreme Court has found a prominent politician guilty of defaming Islam for "Islamophobic" comments he made on his personal blog. The ruling represents a major setback for free speech in a Europe that is becoming increasingly stifled by politically correct restrictions on free speech, particularly on issues related to Islam and Muslim immigration.

The Investment Scam That Will Wipe You Out

21 Sivan 5772 – June 10, 2012

Cartoon Rehab: For Whom the iBell Tolls

2 Iyyar 5772 – April 24, 2012
This July 2, 2011 cartoon, by Ad-Dustur, was headlined: "Apple Bows to Israeli Pressure and Removes the Palestinian Intifada Website." The argument against Apple wasn't so outrageous, free speech and all, but the choice to go with a Jew (further identified by the star of David on the hat) was just unnecessarily nasty.

Mike Wallace Shuffles Off This Mortal Coil

27 Nisan 5772 – April 18, 2012

“…And There Were No More Tears…”

14 Elul 5769 – September 2, 2009
