Cancel culture works backward when it comes to Jews.
"If this country doesn't give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it. All right?... I just want black liberation and black sovereignty, by any means necessary." — Hawk Newsome, leader of BLM's Greater New York chapter, New York Post, June 25, 2020
We may now be seeing a trend in Jewish-American attitudes that represents a narrower definition of “support” for Israel. which shows moderately strong but less than enthusiastic overall support for Israel. Though there is deep concern over anti-Semitism, dissociated from concern over anti-Israel attitudes. There is a lack of serious concern for anti-Semitism from the left-progressive elements of society.
Most published Middle Eastern military net assessments are based primarily on lists of units and equipment. Unfortunately, history proved that such lists are all too often incorrect. Even when they were correct, the overall assessments generally ignored the quality of personnel and/or equipment, as well as the extent to which rival defense systems could turn available financial, human, and material resources into actual military power.
Hamas and many Palestinians are nothing but honest about their deadly intentions. They are straightforwardly saying: "We refuse, utterly and unequivocally, to change our policies or abandon our weapons for the sake of your money. If you think you can bribe us into changing our behavior because that is what you in the West so often do, sorry, it will not work."
Rabbi Haim Sabato’s elegy for Tisha Be’Av, mourning Israel’s loss of national unity and moral priorities, translated here into English for the first time, by permission of the author. He terms our current situation keter evion, a “pauper’s crown,” meaning sunk to rock bottom. Rav Sabato blames not only our politicians, but cultural leaders and educators too.
Ancient Greece considered athletic ability both a measure of one's value and a cure for social inequality. Athletics were seen as providing a form of moral education, with Plato advocating for the inclusion of women in sports for their moral enrichment and Aristotle calling physical movement an ethical duty. These are ideals after which Western Civilization still strives, but sports—along with all other cultural spheres—have become politicized.
An exclusive interview with Rav Yosef Zvi Rimon about ‘JobKatif’ a nonprofit organization to aid the Gush Katif evacuees in finding employment he established 15 years ago, about the employment programs he has developed since, about the unemployment crisis in the wake of the COVID-19, and about what the state must do immediately to solve the employment crisis.

The historic legacy of the day of mourning about senseless hatred is a reminder that democracy doesn’t work when political parties deem each other illegitimate.
The nuclear deal between the West and Iran has funded Iran’s aggression, rather than buy its moderation. Who will now curb Iran’s aggression and nuclear progress, and how? Trump’s penchant for grand deals that prove his greatness makes me worry that (in a second term) he could be tempted into a settlement with Iran that falls far short of what is necessary. On the other side of the aisle, most Democrats support re-entering the JCPOA and lifting some sanctions against Iran.
U.S. Senator John McCain once said: "When you're not winning, you're losing."
The organization is making outlandish comparisons to a day of ancient Jewish mourning and trying to distract from the facts on the ground.
Many are wondering: how have retired leading members of the Israeli defense establishment come to locate themselves on the political left, at times even on the radical left? Having devoted their professional lives to the task of defending the country and carrying out the orders of the political echelon, they are now spearheading various “anti” movements.
Some evangelicals are impatient zealots who burn for the gospels, others burn as well, but they have the patience and discipline of a monk. Yet all of them burn for the day when they can bring the cross to Jews.
