Central Elections Committee to Discuss Disqualifying Tibi From Next Knesset Election

Raam-Ta'al MK Ahmed Tibi recently made an inflammatory speech praising martyrdom.

The Presidential Racing Form

The strongest attribute of any of the Republican candidates for president is that he or she is not named Barack Obama.

Supreme Court Pres. To Scuttle Appointee Deal

Israeli Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch will allegedly renege on an agreement she made with members of the panel of nominating judges, and support Sephardic former-Attorney General Menachem Mazuz to the court, rather than nationalist-leaning Jerusalem District Judge Noam Solberg.

Reception For Rep. Berkley

Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Nevada) was a special luncheon guest over Chol HaMoed Sukkos in the Los Angeles sukkah of Barbara and Stanley Treitel. Berkley, a U.S. Senate candidate, thanked the Jewish community for inviting her and hearing her views on Israel and related matters.

Flip-Flop To Victory

Beginning with Kennedy and Nixon in 1960, major party nominations and presidential election campaigns have increasingly been subjected to forms of circus television we carelessly label "debates."

Newest Presidential Hopeful Sparks Debate Among Jewish Republicans

WASHINGTON - To some conservative Jews, Texas Gov. Rick Perry would make an excellent presidential candidate. He's been to Israel more than any other candidate in the field and has said he loves it. And Perry creates jobs.

The Destructive Phenomenon Of Kiddush Clubs

A number of years ago I attended a "Kiddush Club" gathering in the basement of a synagogue. Right when the haftarah reading began, several older men snuck out the back and in a small dark room in the basement opened multiple bottles of alcohol. They drank excessively until the sermon was over and then, not so inconspicuously, returned back for the final portion of the Shabbat morning service.

Bachmann’s Pro-Israel Stance Shaped By Summer Work On Kibbutz

WASHINGTON - Newly declared presidential candidate Michele Bachmann's dedication to Israel dates back to 1974, when she was selected at age 17 to join a group of Minnesota teens to spend a summer in Israel.

Palin In Israel: ‘Why Do You Keep Apologizing All The Time?’

Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor, 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee and possible 2012 presidential candidate, visited Israel earlier this week.

The Win-Lose Trap

Opponents of President Obama do not lack for reasons to criticize him or his administration. Not justifiably among them, however, would be the contention that Obama the candidate had misled the country regarding his intentions.

Reflections On Savta’s Murder

A little more than seven years ago, on June 11, 2003, an 18-year-old Palestinian, Abdel Mahdi Shabneh, cradled a Kalashnikov and proclaimed violence to be the only means by which his people could combat Israeli occupation. Shabneh's target would be Jerusalem's busiest street, at the busiest time - Jaffa Road at 5 p.m.

Is Obama At A Tipping Point?

Hurricane Katrina. Hostage crisis. Tet Offensive. Is Barack Obama's presidency at a similar tipping point? The relevance of the question exemplifies the gravity of Obama's crisis. Obama is learning the lesson of presidents before him.

The Challenge Weiner Never Expected

Believing that incumbent Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) no longer effectively advocates on behalf of his constituents, and that our sacred democratic process is for naught should he run unopposed, Joseph Hayon, a 32-year-old father of two, has joined the race for New York's 9th congressional seat. Hayon, a former retail manager, service coordinator, entrepreneur, and elementary school teacher - and self-described "regular American citizen, never before involved in politics" - is pitting himself against one of New York's most seasoned political figures.

Palin, Other GOP Presidential Prospects Lash Obama On Israel

WASHINGTON - As Sarah Palin embarked on a tour for her just published book Going Rogue, she became the latest prospective Republican presidential candidate to criticize the Obama administration's policy on Israel.

How The Media Spun Campaign ’08

Based on her interview with Sen. Joe Biden, we may assume that WFTV (Orlando) Anchor Barbara West: 1. Did not graduate from a school of communications, 2. Will never receive an award from the Society of Professional Journalists, 3. Is unlikely to be employed by The New York Times in the foreseeable future, and 4. Will soon be working with Joe the Plumber, installing bathroom fixtures.

The Inauthenticity Of Our Presidential Politics

Every four years, it seems, we Americans must display infinite forbearance in the face of irrepressible foolishness. Transforming all serious meaning into manipulation and marketing, our presidential election process has now been reduced to an endless barrage of numbing cliches and empty witticisms.

The Morning After: Preliminary Thoughts On An Election Worth Celebrating

Ah, can there be anything so delightful as the sound of liberals whimpering in the morning? Consider:

Chauncey Clark, Time Traveler

Freshly minted Democratic heartthrob Wesley Clark has stumbled badly during his first days as a declared presidential candidate.

Bush, Jews And Democrats (Part VII)

The 1980 presidential election, like the Nixon-McGovern matchup eight years earlier, offered a clear choice between a Republican candidate who was unambiguous in his support of Israel and a Democrat whose record was something less than sterling. Only this time, the pro-Israel candidate was the challenger, former California governor Ronald Reagan, while the more problematic candidate was the incumbent, James Earl Carter.

Misleading Flyer

As readers may recall, several weeks ago, in an Editor's Note accompanying a letter we published, we expressed our displeasure with the writer for seeking to draw The Jewish Press into a local campaign for New York City Council by claiming that we had erroneously reported that one candidate, Samuel Spirgel, had received his support. As we said, we had it right and the writer was plainly changing his mind, doubtless as the result of pressure from one or more formidable supporters of a competing candidate. We were not amused by this attempt to make a political point at the expense of our reportorial reputation.

Mort Zuckerman, Are You Listening?

Several days ago, in the course of talking about the New York mayoral race, Daily News columnist E.R. Shipp noted the flap last year over Hillary Clinton's being endorsed by a Muslim group and the hullabaloo surrounding a Hamas group's endorsement of Mark Green. Ms. Shipp then went on to observe:

Why, pray tell, does one give a hoot about Israel and Palestine when one is trying to become New York City's Mayor? Why, pray tell, does one care about which side is the more terrorist, the Israelis or the Palestinians?
