Airbrushing The Past Creates Problems In The Present

29 Tammuz 5772 – July 18, 2012

The Sin of the Spies – Perspective

26 Sivan 5772 – June 15, 2012
The message of the Biblical account of the Spies has tremendous relevance today, here in the modern State of Israel.

What Would Meir Kahane Do?

20 Heshvan 5771 – October 27, 2010
Although Israel's economy stands strong amid a world recession, the political future of the Jewish state has perhaps never looked bleaker. Iran's nuclear threat looms large, Israel's West Bank settlements may soon become part of a Palestinian state, and Jerusalem stands threatened with division.

The Wicked Son

16 Shevat 5768 – January 23, 2008
When Dr. Israel Shahak died on July 2, 2001, the Monitor speculated that he “presumably had ample opportunity by now to compare notes with Hitler, Stalin and the other equally distinguished residents of his new, supernaturally heated neighborhood.”
