In response to Pamela Geller's anti-Jihad ad campaign, The Muslim Public Affairs Council is joining with Columbia University's Muslim Students Association to launch its own ad campaign "to showcase the Islamic principle of 'repelling evil with what is better' (Koran, Ch. 23, Surah Muminoon, verse 96)." MPAC says its campaign will "call on New Yorkers to stand together in opposing bigotry and hatred," in its effort "HeArt Over Hate: Repelling Bigotry through Art & Music." It's a clever play on words, but while it looks to deliver on its promise to be repellent, what MPAC and the MSA will be showcasing is support for brutal hatred, torture and violence.

Shimon HaTzadik…Simon the Just

What sets us apart from most people can be summed up so easily. Did you know that Sunday was the anniversary of the death of Shimon HaTzadik?

Two Old Men

As the men danced around below us, I had a lot of time to notice the people who were there - many are friends and neighbors of mine; children and grandchildren of people I know. The rabbi that is so loved in this community; a woman who regularly collects food for needy people. This one has a child who is ill; a boy with Down Syndrome who is so loved and cherished. This family has more boys than I can count; this one just had a daughter who got married. She's a grandmother now. Her son just got engaged. That one there is married to her over there. And on and on - a community of people.

The Graveyard of Neoconservatism

Democracy only works when the character of the people is better than the character of their government.

Risking Death, Man Tears up Koran in Egypt; Islamists Now Openly Call for Murder...
