The April 14 World

There was no such clear dividing line when September 11 faded from memory and we returned to a September 10 world.

Mezuzah Arsonist Strikes Again, Evoking Familiar Jewish Fears

The message is “that we are unwanted here, and I don’t know why.”

Bacon Hate Crimes and Islamophobia Witch-Hunts

In the last five years there have been multiple Muslim plots to bomb synagogues. The NYPD is investigating bombs in synagogues, not bacon, because there really is a disturbing trend of anti-Semitic hate crimes. The best evidence that there is no similarly disturbing trend of Islamophobic attacks is that the NYPD is bagging and tagging bacon at a Staten Island football field.

When Political Correctness Gets In The Way Of Fighting Crime

Although by all accounts the NYPD’s stop and frisk program resulted in a significant drop in major violent crime, activists from minority communities made an issue of the fact that most of those stopped and frisked were blacks and Hispanics, many of whom were innocent of any crime.

NYPD Increasing Protection of Jewish Sites After Bulgarian Bombing

The New York City Police Department is stepping up its presence at synagogues and in Jewish neighborhoods the wake of yesterday's deadly bus bombing...

Everything’s Coming Up Jihad

Civil rights movements have been dedicated to abrogating people's rights in the name of entitlement, bringing us to a state of affairs in which religious institutions are obligated to cover abortions, white students sit at the back of the college admissions bus behind black students, and photographers are sued for not wanting to shoot gay weddings. Such a society does not free people from oppression, but rather oppresses all in the name of someone else's greater good.

Thanking The NYPD Is The Least We Can Do

The recent shooting of four police officers in the normally tranquil Sheepshead Bay neighborhood of Brooklyn (bringing the total to eight cops shot so far this year) has confirmed a dangerous double standard that threatens the safety of police officers and all New Yorkers throughout New York. It must be confronted.

We’re Fortunate To Have Ray Kelly As Police Commissioner

In July 1993, I joined a group of Jewish leaders on a visit to Israel with then-Mayor David N. Dinkins. One morning as we had breakfast at the King David Hotel terrace overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem, Dinkins confided, “I wish Ray Kelly were in charge before Crown Heights blew up.” By this time, Ray Kelly had become police commissioner and had made a clear impact on the mayor.

Mayor Bloomberg Links Surveillance to Jewish-School Shooting in France

At a press conference Monday evening, Mayor Michael Bloomberg offered a sympathetic reaction to reports that a gunman killed four people at a Jewish...

The Gray Lady Versus Our Security

The New York Times recently threw a hissy fit over what it felt were overzealous efforts by Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Kelly to defend NYPD anti-terrorist surveillance programs the Times opposes.

Three Cheers For Ray Kelly And The NYPD

Equating terrorism with criminality is ridiculous. They have no relationship to one another. Criminality is generally for the purpose of enrichment of oneself by breaking the law. Modern day terrorism seeks to achieve political or military goals by the use of indiscriminate terror directed primarily at innocent civilians.

In Response to AP Story, Chicago Police, Mayor Emanuel, Promise: We Won’t Spy on...

Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy announced in response to an AP Exposé that his department will never conduct blanket surveillance of Muslims the way the New York Police Department had done in Newark, N.J., when he was the chief of police there. Mayor Bloomberg's response to the same AP story was: "We cannot slack in our vigilance. The threat was real. The threat is real. The threat is not going away."

Muslims Versus The NYPD

We are encouraged by signs that shortsighted attempts by some Muslim groups to blunt the obviously successful proactive NYPD anti-terrorism programs – programs that involve heightened scrutiny of some Muslim-Americans – are not getting any traction.

The Police Commissioner And ‘The Third Jihad’

The current controversy surrounding the film "The Third Jihad" is ostensibly over the propriety of the NYPD's airing it as part of in a training program.

What Can You Do About Terrorist Plots?

Kudos to international law enforcement for thwarting last month's terror plot by alleged al Qaeda-linked factions in Yemen against the United States. The plot was foiled when good intelligence and coordination led authorities on three continents to seize two packages of explosives addressed to Chicago area synagogues.

Letters To The Editor

Joe On JoeThe June issue of Reader's Digest featured an interview with actor Harrison Ford. He was asked, "Your father was Roman Catholic, your...

Need For Vigilance

The Jewish Press continues to receive disturbing reports of non-Jewish Middle Eastern-looking people buying taleisim, taking pictures of Yeshivas and even of having tried to purchase seats during the High Holy Days.
