Why Ted Cruz Speaks for Me

21 Tishri 5774 – September 25, 2013
He gets that we can’t just sit still, paralyzed by bad press and Democratic talking points.

Back in the USSR

14 Tishri 5774 – September 18, 2013
Today's anti-democratic glue is apparently better than the glue of Slavic identity that formed the "Warsaw Pact" because it is a world view and a cultural perspective.

Shooting the Syrian Elephant

6 Tishri 5774 – September 10, 2013
The Republican Party is what it is because it lacks that sense of moral conviction. It takes positions for convenience.

US: Negotiations Resume Wednesday, ‘Outpost’ Construction Illegitimate

3 Elul 5773 – August 9, 2013
To remind you, the first release of Palestinian prisoners with Jewish blood on their hands is scheduled for Tuesday, on the eve of the talks in Jerusalem.

America’s Real ‘Dangerous Slide’ to the Wrong Side

26 Av 5773 – August 1, 2013
Obama, a man who has spent a few hours in Israel and has no empathy with it, dares to say that he knows better what that country needs than does Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Letters to My Son in Gaza: Jihad Must Be Destroyed!

8 Kislev 5773 – November 21, 2012
Dear Son, Do not be confused. Know who the enemy is. With all the meaningless talk of peace agreements and cease fires, the satanic enemy...

Netanyahu to Cabinet: World Leaders Understand Us

4 Kislev 5773 – November 18, 2012
The following was recorded and released by the Government Press Office from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's weekly cabinet meeting:

Al-Qassam Brigades Tweeting Terror Responses to Israel

1 Kislev 5773 – November 14, 2012
A Twitter account which alleges itself to be the "The official web site of Al Qassam Brigades in Palestine" is simul-tweeting its military responses to Israel's Operation Pillar of Defense ("Amud Anan") for its almost 4,000 followers.

The Campaign That Never Ends

As the dust settles and the fog lifts from this tumultuous year of political campaigning, we are left to wonder how our country will evolve. Will the economy bounce back? Will our schools make progress? And how about U.S. relations with Israel? Will they grow weaker or stronger? Will the administration support an Israeli strike on Iran?

Chabad Emissaries Gathered in New York

28 Heshvan 5773 – November 13, 2012
Some 4,000 Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries and communal leaders from more than 75 countries gathered in New York for their 29th international conference. Many of the rabbis...

Pics: Egged Bus Attacked by Arab Jerusalemites on Mount of Olives

27 Heshvan 5773 – November 12, 2012
Following a stabbing incident in which a visitor to the Jewish community of Maale HaZeitim adjacent to the historic Mount of Olives Jewish cemetery was attacked by Arabs in the Ras Al-Amud neighborhood, an Egged bus transporting Jewish residents to and from the enclave was smashed by rock-throwers, who committed the attack from the same place at which the stabbing took place.

Resisting War, Terrorism, And Genocide (First of Three Parts)

23 Heshvan 5773 – November 7, 2012
All things move in the midst of death, even nations and civilizations. From 1948 to the present day, certain of Israel's prime ministers, facing war, terrorism, or even genocide, have been deeply reluctant to admit core national vulnerabilities. Indeed, rather than acknowledge the plainly exterminatory intent and (increasingly) the corollary destructive capacity of determined enemies, these leaders have sometimes opted for (1) so-called terrorist exchanges; 2) utterly inexcusable deals of land for nothing; and (3) endlessly assorted surrenders of power.

Rep. Sherman At Wallenberg Luncheon

18 Heshvan 5773 – November 2, 2012
Jewish community leaders gathered recently in Washington to recognize the accomplishments of Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) on issues dear to the Jewish community. Sherman is known for his unwavering support for a strong U.S.-Israel strategic relationship, for sponsoring a tough Iran sanctions bill, and for cosponsoring legislation that would require the State Department to immediately move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

The Making of a President and the Making of a Gadol

17 Heshvan 5773 – November 1, 2012
I must say that I was a little bit amused by the above video featured on Aish.com. In about 3 minutes Mrs. Lori Palatnik proudly explains the difference between how Americans choose their leaders and how Orthodox Jews chose their leaders. Choosing a President in this great country of ours is a democratic process, but it is heavily influenced by money and power; ads and sloganeering; and smearing the opponent. Politics at its worst one might say. Certainly the best man available for the job may not be elected, or even running.

Politics And Torah — Friends Or Enemies?

11 Heshvan 5773 – October 26, 2012
Many trees upstate were damaged by the hurricane that swept through the East Coast at the end of last summer, and I was involved in finding the safest equipment to clean up the mess. I love trees and found the chore of cutting them down very difficult, especially knowing that the stately 60 year old trees would be impossible to replace. Even though we planted new trees, I don't know whether I will be there to enjoy these new saplings when they are 60 years old.

Nobel Peace Prize Rewards The End of Democracy

8 Heshvan 5773 – October 23, 2012
Many of us can, I am sure, remember where we were when we realized that the resplendence of the Nobel Prize had diminished. For some this realization can be traced to the news that Yasser Arafat had become joint recipient of the Peace Prize (an award of which he was never stripped). For others it will have been the announcement earlier this month that the award had been given to the E.U.

Liberal Protestants Show Their True Colors

26 Tishri 5773 – October 11, 2012
We have long been dismayed by the trust some prominent Jewish groups place in the established non-evangelical Protestant Christian denominations. Aside from some occasional and perfunctory conciliatory statements on minor matters offered by the denominational leaders, the relationship has never become a true dialogue but rather an embarrassing, self-conscious cry for acceptance from insecure Jews.

Bibi’s Bomb Stole The Show

With the dramatic stroke of a red marker, the “Bibi Bomb” became an instant sensation. When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stood before world leaders on September 27 at the 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly, he faced a colossal challenge. Despite the vocal skepticism of those who feel the situation is not as dire as he maintains, Netanyahu has been steadfast in his insistence that Iran is well on its way to stockpiling enough enriched uranium to construct a nuclear bomb.

Cory Booker & Shmuley Boteach: The Rabbi and the Rhodes Scholar (Video)

21 Tishri 5773 – October 7, 2012
Twenty years, countless conversations, and hundreds of Friday night Shabbat dinners later, Cory today is a much-loved honorary member of the American Jewish community, regularly lecturing at Synagogues and Jewish conferences across the country. More significant, Cory has challenged the Jewish community to live up to its Biblical calling to serve as ‘a light unto the nations.’ In many of the speeches we deliver together he asks the Jewish participants if they study the weekly Parsha, if they honor the commandments, and cherish the Sabbath. What allows an African-American Christian Mayor to challenge Jewish leaders to deepen their Jewish commitment? Because those same leaders are amazed at Cory’s knowledge of Judaism and appreciation of the Jewish contribution to civilization. (Watch video)

Despite Ridicule from the Left, Bibi’s Message on Iran Is Being Heard

14 Tishri 5773 – September 29, 2012
Three leaders: President Obama, Secretary Clinton and Canadian Prime Minister Harper by the end of last week expressed both in words and deeds a commitment to the elimination of Iran's nuclear program. Interestingly, the one whose action Friday will probably have the most profound influence on the future of Iran was Hillary Clinton, who has unleashed an old, aggressive enemy against the Mullahs' state. It may only be a matter of time before other Western powers will internalize Bibi's message.
