Decades After Immigrating, Ethiopians Decry Continuing Discrimination

Many claim prejudices against the Ethiopians’ skin color and widespread suspicion of the authenticity of their Jewishness prevent greater integration.

After The American Elections Israel, “Peace,” And International Law (Part III)

President Obama has hitherto accepted the language of a "moderate" Palestinian Authority. The PA and its associates are distinctly obligated to refrain from incitement against Israel. Going back even to the legal antecedents of the current peace process, the Interim Agreement (Oslo 2) stated, at Article XXII, that Israel and the PA "shall seek to foster mutual understanding and tolerance and shall accordingly abstain from incitement, including hostile propaganda, against each other...." In the Note for the Record, which accompanied the Hebron Protocol of January 15,1997, the PA reaffirmed its commitment regarding "Preventing Incitement and Hostile Propaganda, as specified in Article XXII of the Interim Agreement." Substantially familiar if more general reaffirmations can readily be found in the Road Map.

Imprisoning Emmanuel Parents Is Morally Absurd

The issue in the girl's school controversy in Emmanuel is not about ethnic discrimination but about differences between religious groups. The school's educational policies are based on the level of observance, not ethnic background.

Lying About Discrimination With Statistics

Mark Twain once said there are three sorts of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

Anti-Zionism, Sephardic Style

There is a widespread perception in Israel that Sephardic Jews are more sensible than the rest of us. Sephardim, or "Oriental Jews" as they are commonly if mistakenly called (strictly speaking, the two terms are not interchangeable), tend to shy away from the various manifestations of non-moderation that afflict Ashkenazi or "Western" Jews.

Arab Anti-Semitism – Genocide, Terrorism And International Law (Second Of Two Parts)

While most of the world outside of Washington and Jerusalem chooses to ignore calls identifying Palestinian terrorism as attempted genocide, international law has an unswerving and renewed obligation to do so.

Sabbath Observing Professor Wins Signal Legal Victory

A Sabbath-observant Orthodox Associate Professor of Education at William Paterson College, a state-run university in New Jersey, won a resounding landmark victory from a federal court of appeals in her religious-discrimination lawsuit. A unanimous Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit issued a 38-page opinion sending the claims of Dr. Gertrude Abramson back to trial court for a full jury trial on her allegations that she had been subjected to a ''hostile work environment'' because of harassment relating to her observance of the Sabbath and Jewish religious holidays. The Court also upheld her claims that her employment had been terminated because she observed religious holidays, and that the College retaliated against her because she maintained her religious observance.

Jewish Week Follow-Up

Last week in this space we took the New York Jewish Week to task over its giving front page placement to a rehashing of a year-old story about a concededly serious abuse problem at the Orthodox Union?s NCSY, and to a hazy report about a religious discrimination lawsuit filed against Yeshiva University by a Conservative Jewish woman. We saw this as fresh evidence of an Orthodox-bashing bent at The Jewish Week manifested by that tabloid?s artificial pumping up of negative pieces about two crown jewels of Orthodox Judaism.
