Killing Me Softly (Arachin 15b, 16a; Zevachim 88a)

A person’s reputation precedes him. A bad reputation prejudices any chance of a successful encounter. Damaging a person’s reputation is tantamount to booby-trapping human relations before they can blossom into happy relationships.

Arab Sector Leads Statistics in Violent Crimes in Israel

Internal Security Minister presents plan to improve the situation.

Israel And Its Enemies: Future Wars And Forceful Options (Second of Three...

At the conclusion of the recent [Editor’s Note: the first] Gulf War [Operation Desert Storm], the Bush administration announced plans to sell Saudi Arabia, a country of six million inhabitants, an arms package including over 500 tanks, 48 F-15 fighter planes, Apache helicopter gunships, more than 30 Patriot batteries, tens of thousands of armored vehicles, multiple rocket-launchers and command/control systems.

Iranian Law Intensifies Punishment for Travelling to Israel

A law punishing Iranians for trips to Israel has now been made much more severe by the Iranian parliament.  Conviction of the crime of...

Learning From The Past: Some Current Implications Of An Earlier Indifference To Israel’s Basic...

At a moment when Israel is under new daily assaults from the international community, especially from the Palestinian Authority and its oddly eager mentors at the United Nations, it is worth noting that there is a discernible and continuous pattern here of legal double-standards.

How I Learned Not To Judge A Judge By His Cover

I went to a sentencing several weeks ago - my first ever. The man being sentenced, William Hill, was convicted by a jury of brutally beating Jacob Gerstle, an 81-year-old member of my community in Washington Heights, in 2006.

Title: Annie’s Ghosts, A Journey into a Family Secret

As any psychologist can tell you - no two people who see an event come away with the very same experience. Criminologists and detectives who question people who may have witnessed a crime experience the fact that several different people will report various versions of the event.

Trading Israeli Gilad Shalit For Palestinian Terrorists,

Under long-standing international law, every state has a primary obligation to protect its citizens. Yet, it appears that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may soon be prepared to exchange Palestinian terrorists for kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit. Any such exchange, however humane to Shalit and his family, would imperil thousands of other Israelis.

How Not to Prevent a Holocaust: The Limits of Empathy

I was almost inexpressibly saddened to read the comments made week before last by President Obama at a Holocaust Days of Remembrance ceremony at the Holocaust Museum in Washington. In a mostly lyrical and affecting speech, I very nearly missed the significance of the following key passage:

Hanging In the Balance: Nightmare in Japan

The loneliness is overwhelming. Yoel G., Yaakov Yosef G., and Yossi B. have spent ten months in solitary confinement, sitting on a hard concrete floor, their mobility severely restricted.

Israel’s Anti-Democratic Anti-Racism Law

In 1977 Israel's criminal code was changed. Section 144A was added, making "racism" a crime.

Title: The Banality Of Denial: Israel And The Armenian Genocide

We have an ugly name for people who commit the ugly crime of declaring that The Holocaust never happened - they are called 'deniers,' and have been successfully prosecuted both here and abroad.

The ‘Geneva Initiative’ And Amnesty For Palestinian Terrorists

An essential element of all civilized legal systems is the fundamental rule of "No crime without a punishment." This principle, drawn originally from the law of Ancient Israel, is conspicuously codified in binding international law.

Still Wrong About Rudy After All These Years (Part II)

As was remarked upon here last week, The New York Times has for the past eight years been what can best be described as maddeningly ambivalent, when it hasn't been fighting mad, about Rudy Giuliani.

Still Wrong About Rudy After All These Years (Part I)

The New York Times has always had a difficult time understanding, let alone embracing, Rudolph Giuliani. From his first mayoral race - the losing effort against David Dinkins in 1989 - through his victory four years later and the wildly successful two terms in office that followed, Giuliani was treated by the Times with varying degrees of skepticism, condescension, moral outrage and, on occasion, admiration that might charitably have been described as grudging had it not been delivered with the obligatory qualifiers and negative asides the paper reserves these days for George W. Bush.

Assassination Or Something Else?

The international furor over Israel?s policy of what it calls ?interception of terrorists? sharply illustrates the dilemma in which Israel finds itself. Without doubt, Israel?s targeting of suspected terrorists has thwarted many terrorist acts. However, because they were not convicted in a court of law, and thus there is no legal certainty that they were connected to a crime, most of the world has called this a policy of assassination ? a form of punishment and deterrent without trial.
