Pro-Israel Jewish Democrats Oppose Keith Ellison’s DNC Bid

Some pro-Israel activists recall, with dismay, Ellison's efforts to unseat a pro-Israel New Jersey congressman, Steve Rothman, in 2012.

Solidarity Suggestion for Diaspora: Alter Simchat Torah Celebrations

Rabbi Weitzmann said during the dark 1940's: "you cannot celebrate at a time when other Jews are dying."

Despite Claims of a (Flawed) Poll, American Jews Oppose Iran Deal

A poll suggesting American Jews support the Iran deal is flawed, while a new poll reveals the opposite.

Peacenik McGovern: We Should Have Bombed Auschwitz

George McGovern is widely remembered for advocating immediate American withdrawal from Vietnam and sharp reductions in defense spending. Yet despite his reputation as a pacifist, the former U.S. senator and 1972 presidential candidate, who died Sunday at 90, did believe there were times when America should use military force abroad.

The Jewish Vote And The 1948 Election

Bob Weintraub chuckled appreciatively the first time he heard that Barack Obama described his job before he went into politics as “community organizer.” Bob knows a thing or two about community organizing: during the late 1940s, he helped organize a series of remarkable grassroots election campaigns in New York City that sent a powerful warning to President Harry Truman about the Jewish community’s unhappiness over his administration’s waffling on Zionism.

Honoring The Memory Of Jan Karski

By the time he was 26, Jan Karski had been imprisoned by the Soviets, tortured by the Gestapo, and nearly drowned while escaping from a hospital in German-occupied Slovakia.

Benzion Netanyahu’s Role In American Politics

Benzion Netanyahu – historian, one-time political activist and father of Israel's prime minister – died Monday in Jerusalem at 102. An accomplished scholar and the patriarch of one of Israel's most important political families, he also played a surprising and little-known role in American political history.

The Mormon Senator Who Tried To Save Anne Frank

The news that a Mormon temple in the Dominican Republic recently conducted a posthumous proxy baptism of Anne Frank, the most famous diarist of the Holocaust, undoubtedly will cause some offense in the Jewish community. Evidently the baptizers believe they were saving Anne's soul. Of greater significance, however, is what Mormons tried to do to save Anne's life.

The Mufti Influences An American Election

A Palestinian mufti has called for violence against Jews, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is demanding Palestinian leaders disavow him and America's presidential race could be affected.

FDR and the ‘Voyage of the Damned’

Miami Beach was certainly a fitting choice as the site for this month's reunion of passengers from the ill-fated SS St. Louis, the ship of Jewish refugees that sailed from Nazi Germany in May 1939. As children, they gazed at the lights of Miami as the St. Louis hovered off the Florida coast, hoping desperately for permission to land.

Evasion, Obstruction And Acquiescence

President Roosevelt's response to the Holocaust is a serious issue that merits careful consideration of the historical facts. Listing FDR's Jewish acquaintances, or the number of Jews hired by his administration, tells us very little about his response to the Nazi genocide. A meaningful discussion of the issues needs to move beyond arguments along the lines of "some of his best friends were Jewish." And name-calling likewise does little to enhance understanding of the issues.

Netanyahu Follows Father’s Path In Amassing Bipartisan Support

The enthusiastic response Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu received when he addressed Congress on May 24 came from both sides of the aisle. Democrats and Republicans both took part in the numerous standing ovations.

A History Lession From Netanyahu Senior

Israeli generals probably don't cry very often. These are men of steel nerves, professional soldiers toughened by the rigors of battle and a lifetime devoted to strict military discipline.

Obama, Libya And The Holocaust

President Obama and his supporters have defended U.S. military action in Libya by invoking America's failure to respond to mass murder in Rwanda, Bosnia and even the Holocaust. Do those experiences indeed offer useful lessons for the current crisis?

Letters To The Editor

Three-State Solution   In his fine column of Sept. 15, Louis Rene Beres noted that Israel was not the aggressor in 1967 and as such...
