It’s My Opinion: Hurricane Season

The Labor Day weekend and the resumption of school are signals that mark the end of summer in many parts of the United States. Families have one last barbecue. Women put away their white shoes. Everyone anticipates the bright colors of falling leaves and cooler weather.

2016: Effective, Well Done, a Caveat or Two

Dinesh D’Souza’s film, 2016: Obama’s America, is very good at putting the viewer in the milieu of Jakarta or Nairobi, which continue to feel “different” enough to engage the American viewer’s sense of distance and wonder. Conveying the difference of Barack Obama’s childhood and his idea of cultural roots – the difference from American life – is the movie’s most effective accomplishment.

The Greatest Misconception

Focusing on the relations between Israel and the Palestinians turns the conflict inside out. In fact it is driven by the absolute rejection of a Jewish state in the Middle East by all the Muslim nations in the region, which dates back to the beginning of Zionism, before the founding of the state of Israel, before the development of specifically Palestinian nationalism, and long before the 1967 war.

A Paradoxical Relationship

Let’s explain what is usually considered a major paradox: the US provides billions in military aid to Israel, enabling it to keep its enemies at bay. But at the same time its diplomats claim that they don’t know what the capital is, and the major thrust of US policy since 1973 has been to force Israel to withdraw to indefensible boundaries, despite the obvious damage to its security.

Making a Horse Look Like an Elephant

I believe that Partnership Minyanim are sourced in a culture that is foreign to Judaism - the radical feminist ideal of equating the sexes in all areas of life. In Orthodoxy that idea is doomed to failure. The mere fact that women can never be counted towards constituting a Minyan means that equality can never be fully achieved in the sense that feminism requires it. Even if there are a hundred women and 9 men, there is no Minyan.

J.E. Dyer: America – This time, it’s personal

The period of the Obama tenure, and now the 2012 election, are forcing Americans to reconsider, in a way I’m not sure we have for a good 200 years, what the vote means, and what politics means to our lives. Since 1792, the sense has gradually crept upon us that when we elect a president, we are electing our collective future. That sense took a giant leap forward with the FDR presidency, and frankly, it took another one when Reagan entered office.

New Bill Envisions Large Scale Settlement Uprooting, Attempts to Protect Victims

The new bill not only forces government to live up to 100 percent of its promises to future evacuees, but anticipates a reality in which evacuations are commonplace.

Origins of Internationalization

Yishai Fleisher presents a talk that he gave to the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem about why the concept of internationalizing the city is not a good idea.

Improving One’s Mood

Dear Dr. Yael: For the most part, my husband is a very good husband and father. He loves our children and will often go out of his way to make sure their needs are met. He is also loving and good to me. However, he often comes home with a very negative attitude. When he arrives home from work, he sees nothing good. He criticizes the children for not being in pajamas or for not finishing their homework. Even if he is right on both counts, he does not convey his criticism appropriately or at the right time.

Putin Vows: Holocaust Will Not Be Repeated

Two years ago, when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, on a visit to Moscow, proposed the idea of a monument in Israel commemorating the sacrifices of the Red Army on behalf of Jews, President Putin promised to come to Israel for the inauguration ceremony.

A Dumb Investment Someone Wants to Sell You Now

Watch out when salesmen want to sell you a unique or secret investment.

Blogging Tomorrow at the President’s Conference

Bloggers had the opportunity to ask President Peres some questions at the gathering. Bloggers from both national papers and personal websites were represented and asked questions that ranged from straightforward politics to ones that were more personal. One inevitably centered around the issue of Iran, in which Peres answered that Iran is using dangerous means that don’t give Israelis much of a choice when deciding what to do next.

Israel May Build Artificial Islands to Alleviate Shortage of Space

Israel, which is approximately the size of the state of New Jersey, is also a very densely populated country – with an average of 982 people per square mile. "The idea...has spatial, economic and security logic for us," PM Netanyahu said. "It is also of value regarding environmental protection."

The Investment Scam That Will Wipe You Out

Which investment scammer has you in his sights? Who knows? But one thing is for sure - if you start by asking the most basic questions and not believing the unbelievable, you're well on your way to protecting yourself. The scammer will just move on to his next victim.

Rubin Reports: President Obama Demands a Meeting to Discuss His Grade

Janice Fiamengo’s brilliant article, “The Unteachables: A Generation that Cannot Learn,” fits my past experience teaching at American universities. But I realized that her account applied perfectly to…something else.

Abba Kovner And The Real-Life Jewish Avengers

As moviegoers over the weekend flocked to see Marvel’s new superhero ensemble, they would understandably associate the idea of avengers with Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Black Widow.

“Slutwalk” to Come to Jerusalem on Friday

“Slutwalk”, a controversial rally aiming to counter the claim that revealing clothing provokes rape and sexual assault, will come to Jerusalem on Friday unless...

Can We Make Auschwitz A Little More Stylish?

American clothing retailer Urban Outfitters is in hot water for selling a yellow T-shirt with a patch over the breast pocket that looks like a designer's idea of how to improve that old fashioned yellow Star of David that Jews were forced to wear by the Nazis. Make it blue, for one thing, yellow is soooo 1941.

Sharing Recipes

The first few post-Pesach days are filled with the hurried rush to consume as much “chometz” as possible – and then the weight concerns begin. For some, the gut reaction (pun intended) is to stop eating – never a good idea. We all know that the best way to lose those extra pounds is by focusing on eating healthy.
