Crystal Ball Ready? Take the 5783 Jewish Pundit Quiz

So, along with me, guess (or should I say prognosticate?) about the coming year.

Why Do Jews Who Worship ‘Social Justice’ Promote “Social Injustice’?

Liberals are backing open borders and loan bailouts that hurt working-class Americans and could lead to a massive wealth transfer from the less well-off to the more prosperous.

ADL Gets Woke, Greenblatt Should Get Gone

Under its current leader, ADL discarded nonpartisanship. But the inclusion of critical race theory in the curricula it gives schools is not an isolated blunder.

Who is the 21st-Century’s Role Model? Queen Elizabeth or AOC?

The world mourned a woman whose dignity and devotion to duty moved all, while America celebrates a woke princess who screams hypocritical self-involvement.

Zionism Won. So Why is it Still Attacked 125 Years after Basel?

The anniversary of Theodor Herzl’s convening of the First Zionist Congress is cause for celebration; however, the ongoing battle to secure Jewish self-determination is far from over.

An End to the Delusions about Biden, Iran and Israel?

Lapid’s claims about influencing Washington notwithstanding, the failure of Jerusalem’s impotent and belated nuclear-deal protests should be a wake-up call about a shaky alliance

‘CNN’ Gets it Partially Right about anti-Semitism

A documentary acknowledged hate on the Left and the Right but failed to explain the role of critical race theory in mainstreaming it while resurrecting a smear of Trump even as they debunked it.

Gaza Fighting Changes NOTHING About Israel’s Image Issue

Critics have never cared about rocket attacks, terrorism or even about the Palestinians. The argument remains about whether one Jewish state on the planet is one too many.

Will Trump Have ‘Last Word’ over Mid-East ‘Experts?’

The Biden administration’s desire to reinstate foreign-policy establishment conventional wisdom notwithstanding, their predecessor’s Abraham Accords should stand the test of time.

Is Russia Threatening the Jewish Agency a Return to Soviet Oppression?

Moscow wants to pressure Israel to stay out of its brutal war on Ukraine. That’s deplorable; still, Jerusalem and Jewish groups shouldn’t become full-fledged participants in that conflict.

Do Tradition and Faith Provide the Cure for Woke Madness?

As radical leftist ideologies set society on fire, what’s needed is an intellectual debate about whether classical liberalism or a rediscovered conservatism provides the answers.

What’s Wrong with Jews Embracing Anti-racism?

As some join in Juneteenth commemorations, the question is not whether to oppose racism but how adopting the narrative of “white privilege” legitimizes racialist ideas and anti-Semitism.

Condemning the ‘Mapping Project’ is NOT Enough

Opposition to the targeting of Jews by mainstream Democrats was a rejection of anti-Zionist extremism. But the real problem is this effort’s roots in critical race theory and intersectionality.

Lesson from a Government’s Likely Collapse? Stop Worrying About International Opinion

Having an Arab party in the coalition should have silenced the “apartheid state” lie. It just proved again that Israel’s enemies don’t care what it does; they just want it dead.

How Jewish Support for ‘Anti-racism’ Empowered Antisemitism

Two years after the moral panic set off by the death of George Floyd, American Jews need to confront the way the BLM movement and the ideologies that underpin it enable hatred of Jews.

Who’s to Blame for Young American and Democrat Coolness Towards Israel?

Despite the impulse to blame Netanyahu and the usual targets of left-wing scorn, the real answer is the growing popularity of theories like intersectionality that sanction anti-Semitism.

Does it Matter if an Orthodox Jew is ‘DOXXED’ in an Attempt to Silence...

One need not be a fan of LibsofTikTok to realize that the decision of a major pillar of the media establishment that is owned by a Big Tech oligarch like Amazon founder Jeff Bezos to target a private citizen in this way is a deplorable escalation of our political culture wars. That it also carries with it a touch of anti-Semitic incitement only makes it worse.

French Election Proves Poor Choices Facing French and European Jews

While Marine Le Pen is considered a threat to Jewish life, President Emmanuel Macron represents a centrist establishment that has failed to meet the challenge of Islamism.

A Plague of Media Disinformation

A magazine conference not only failed to address examples of the media spreading lies, but it also gave a platform to those who spread it, including former Pres. Obama.

In the 21st Century, anti-Zionism Means Antisemitism

Prior to 1948, debates about a Jewish state were common. Today, as a Chicago synagogue proclaims its hostility to Zionism, it means siding with those slaughtering Israelis.

Kicking Russia off UN Human Rights Council Means Nothing

Efforts to reform a body that traffics in anti-Semitism won’t work as long as tyrannies like China and Cuba remain members. The United States should leave and defund it, not try to fix it.

Violence Against Diaspora Jews is NOT Israel’s Fault

If the terror surge spreads elsewhere, the reason will be the normalization of anti-Israel hate and complacency about Islamist radicalism, not Jews bearing the burden of “white privilege.”

Summit No Compensation for U.S. Betrayal

The meeting in the Negev with officials from the Arab world is historic. But while helpful, these new allies don’t solve the problem created by Biden’s appeasement of Iran.

Envoy from Failed Past Presses Towards a Problematic Future

U.S. Ambassador to Israel Thomas Nides isn’t just out of touch with the reality of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He sees his job not as fostering good relations, but telling Israelis what they can and cannot do.

Why Does the World Care What Israel Does About Ukraine?

Caught in the diplomatic and media crossfire caused by the Russian invasion, the disproportionate attention the Jewish state gets has many causes, but is also linked to anti-Semitism.

West Selling Soul to Drop Gas Prices

Part of the reason for the rush to re-enter a pact that will guarantee that Tehran gets a nuclear weapon is to put Iranian oil on the market. That’s a disaster for everyone.

Lessons for Israel from Russia’s Attack on Ukraine

Self-reliance is the key to security. Israelis must understand that they should avoid being put in a position where, like the Ukrainians, they must rely on fickle international sympathy.

Don’t Blame Biden’s Appeasement Policy on Trump

With the Iran nuclear deal about to be restored, administration apologists claim that the problem is the former president’s fault. But the “experts” that blast him are wrong.

The ADL’s Disturbing Obsession with Race

The problem isn’t that the person they hired to do outreach was a left-wing Twitter troll. It’s that ADL accepted intersectional ideology about racism and is dividing Jews along racial lines.
