Wake up America, Islamic Terrorism Targets YOU!

To defeat Islamic terrorism, Western societies – led by the US - must rid counter-terrorism of the "lone wolf" mentality; acknowledge the inherently non-compromising nature of Islamic terrorism and confront Islamic rogue regimes militarily,

From Center Field To Center Stage: The Journeys Of NFLer Alan Veingrad

In 1992 the Dallas Cowboys won Super Bowl XXVII. Among the members of the team was a young Jewish man named Alan Veingrad.

The Secret Reason Arabs Reject the Jewish Nation-State Law

Israel’s Nuclear Ambiguity: Opportunity Or Liability? (Part I)

Worldwide, it is generally assumed that Israel's nuclear policy of deliberate ambiguity makes good sense. Everyone already knows that Israel has "the Bomb." So, why "stir the pot" by retreating from "opacity?"

Riots Fail To Spoil Our Annual Pilgrimage

Losing Rational Orthodoxy

There is a growing crisis in the international Jewish community that I believe must be acknowledged if we are to survive intact and preserve our children’s future. The crisis is related to, but goes well beyond, the fact that we are in general too indulgent and tolerant as parents; it goes beyond the fact that we have acquired a level of wealth and comfort that we take too much for granted – even if we are not all wealthy nor all that comfortable; and it goes beyond any individual’s intensity ascribed to religious custom and tradition. It is more about our willingness to abandon the balance of faith and reality that has helped us endure for centuries. This is not a crisis of abiding religious faith or observant practice per se, but rather a calamity of application and interpretation. And it has the potential to be a disaster of significant proportion.

Mass March on Gaza Border May Be Only the Beginning

How To Get The World To Hate Israel
