Obama Administration’s Dishonest/Cynical Defense of Anti-Israel UN Vote

The anti-Israel team of Obama & Kerry directed UN Amb. Power to abstain rather than veto an anti-Israel resolution in the UNSC. Abstaining had the same effect as an anti-Israel UN Vote.

It’s Time to Shut Down The Press

The Jewish Press reports that Kosher Delight is closing its doors in New York, the third Manhattan kosher emporium to do so this year. The real question is: when will “Galut Delight” close up shop? When will the exile lose its delight in the eyes of Diaspora Jews? When will we understand that we don’t belong in gentile lands, no matter how delightful and kosher our Jewish communities may be?

One of the Things I Love About Israel

In Israel, even the buses count the Omer.

I Love All Jews

That’s right. I love Jews. All of them. I love good Jews and I love bad Jews. I love fat Jews and I love...

Mrs. Brown’s Journey

But it is even more foolish in my view to not teach the science in the first place. Ignorance is our worst enemy. Because the minute one finds a contradiction to the insistence that only the most literal interpretation of the Torah is acceptable, believers can and often will sadly go the way or Mrs. Brown.

President Obama, Listen to Netanyahu on Iran

Sounds Israeli: The Fools of Prophecy

A raw live version of the Israeli hit 'Ein Ani' performed in front of an IDF unit in 2012.

Addicts in America

The addict seeks the unreal state because it makes him happy. It is the real world that depresses him. Enough Americans chose to shoot up Obama and a smaller number are still committed to their hope drug because he makes them happy. And fooling them makes Obama happy. All the money is just a counter that everyone trades back and forth in exchange for happiness. Trillion dollar deficits are how we know we're getting high.

The Meaning of European ‘Resolve’ Against Terror

European politics is populated by a multitude of individuals who are hopelessly ambivalent about Islamists.

The Maddening Thing About Moshe Kahlon

It looks like Moshe Kahlon, the popular and vaunted Likud Minister of Communications, will be the second consecutive Likud Central Committee Chairman to leave the party looking for more power. The first one, Tzahi Hanegbi who left to Kadima and was charged with handing out jobs to cronies and nearly convicted of perjury, is now back in Likud because Kadima has entirely crashed. He’s looking for a slot on Likud’s Knesset roster.

The Chief Rabbinate’s Folly

A Community Focuses on Child Abuse Perpetrators

The event was entitled “Who are the people in our neighborhood.”

Can Women say Kaddish?

I do not see this as a feminist issue at all. This is a human issue.

Remembering Yehoshua Friedberg HY’D ZT’L

In 1993, Yehoshua Friedberg HY'D was murdered by terrorists. Every year, on Taanit Purim, is the Aliya l'Kever. This will be the first Azkara without Ari Fuld.

‘Ashkenic’ Jews to Celebrate the Passover with Brisket and Kuegel

In Woody Allen's 1973 comic Sci Fi masterpiece "Sleeper," an underground band in the far future is trying to revive Allen's memory by acting out scenes from his childhood in Jewish Brooklyn. One of the men, in the roll of Allen's father, urges him, "Stop whining and eat your shiksa…" That was the feeling that overcame me when I read the article in Monday's Daily Mail of New Baltimore, NY, under the headline "Church brings Jewish traditions to life."

Bridging Fear and Faith: Do You Feel Safe?

The cabbie, Mohammed said to me,"I'm supposed to hate you. That's what we believe. But I don't."

Hate Crime RISE Against Jews in 2017 is MUCH Worse than Being Reported

The difference between the ADL report and the FBI Hate Crimes statistics is that the FBI only includes actual crimes, while the ADL counts "incidents" which is a much broader category.

Things Not Looking Good on Iran

In the first year of the Obama administration, statements coming from top officials showed that the US believed that Iran has a nuclear weapons program.

Cartoon Rehab: Oh, Go Ahead, Surrender, You Know You Want To…

Welcome to the Jewish Press Online Cartoon Rehabilitation Project (JPOCRP), or, in short (suggested by our colleague Rafi Harkham) Cartoon Rehab. We found this cartoon on the ADL website. They say it was originally published in Oman, April 12, 2012, and the original text, written in blood, says: "We Will Never Surrender."
