Bomb Iran to stop a wider war in Europe and protect Taiwan

Putin’s war against Ukraine is far from Tehran. But if the Biden administration hopes to deter Russia in Ukraine, and its growing alliance with China and Iran, it needs to move decisively against Iran’s nuclear assets now. The war in Europe and...

 

A Letter to Volodymyr Zelenskyy the President of Ukraine from a Jew

Dear Volodymyr Zelenskyy, You are a master of public relations, a Churchill for your country, a true patriot. I am a Jewess, the daughter of Holocaust survivors. Indeed, your country, Ukraine, has been invaded and the reality is grim. Technology has...

The price of appeasement and how to stop it

(JNS) — The year so far finds the Western alliance at a crossroads. Unable to comprehend the Axis assembled against the American-led world order, the Biden administration is actively empowering our adversaries and rendering a new world war vastly...

 

Biden's weakness on the Ukraine-Russia war is a threat to America

Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine under Obama in February 2014 and Biden in February 2022. The invasions eight years apart to the month are not a coincidence. Both times Putin was facing a lame duck Democrat who had just flinched away from a military...

 

Kicking Russia off the UN Human Rights Council is an empty gesture

(JNS) — After the recent revelations of war crimes committed by Russia in Ukraine, the world is looking for ways to make life harder for President Vladimir Putin’s regime and to express its outrage. So when America’s ambassador to the United...

 

Suppressing pro-Israel views at the University of Chicago

(JNS) — The suppression of pro-Israel views on campus has been a troubling development in the ongoing cognitive war against Israel. Now, the silencing of pro-Israel voices even appears in college newspapers. This week, the University of...

 

They're pro-Israel, 'Dayenu'

(JNS) — I know many Jews from the older (than me) generation whose response to political issues was: “Is it good for the Jews?” The younger generations viewed this as myopic and anachronistic. Elderly Jews were particularistic; the younger...

 

Why it is OK for Arabs to kill Israelis

I had not even left the parking lot of Ben Gurion airport Thursday when I learned there had just been another terrorist attack that morning. The fourth in a week. This one took place near my home, on a bus that my kids use often. A Palestinian Arab...

 

There is a Pharaoh and Moses inside each of us

Are we perpetually enslaved to our inner doubts, despair and anger? It is hard to sing the song of freedom when we do not feel free. So often it feels as though the sea will never split. Because inside every one of us there is a Pharaoh and he will...

 

Hillary Clinton tries to rewrite history

(JNS) — I understand that Hillary Clinton is mourning the passing of her friend and predecessor, U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. But that doesn’t give her the right to revise the historical record concerning Albright and Israel....

 

Cold War II and Biden's new 'new world order'

(JNS) — These are confusing times, and President Joe Biden is not helping to bring clarity. Last week, for example, he told Business Roundtable that “there’s going to be a new world order.” What could he possibly have meant? The old “new...

 

Prepare a war-crimes tribunal for Putin

(JNS) — As the evidence of war crimes committed by the Russians in Ukraine mounts, and President Joe Biden has already labeled Russian President Vladimir Putin a “war criminal,” the United States should lay the groundwork for a war-crimes...

The new Iran deal is a disaster, and everyone knows it

(JNS) — The United States and Iran are reportedly on the cusp of a new nuclear agreement. One of the last remaining issues is said to be whether or not the Biden administration removes the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps from the Foreign...

 

20 years on, PA still glorifies the perpetrators of the Passover Seder Massacre

(JNS) — March 27, 2022, was the twentieth anniversary of the Passover Seder Massacre. As families sat down to Passover dinner at the Park Hotel in Netanya in northern Israel in 2002, a Palestinian suicide bomber detonated his explosive device in...

 

Scary and scarier

For us old-timers, it is beginning to feel like the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis all over again, in terms of worries about a nuclear conflagration. Vladimir Putin is waving around his tactical nuclear weapons, i.e., low yield nuclear bombs that would...

 

Once again, the UN is set to play word games to deny the Jews their history

(JNS) — The United Nations has a long history of inventing or redefining terminology to single out, demonize and delegitimize the Jewish state. Over the years, for example, the U.N. has invented a separate meaning for the term “refugee” when it...

 

Biden's Israel ambassador tells BDS group he wants Jews out of Jerusalem

(JNS) — Biden’s ambassador to Israel recently told participants in a pro-BDS group’s webinar that the real problem with the Palestinian Authority funding terrorism is that “it gives the ‘haters’ an excuse not to support the P.A. based on...

 

Infuriating Ambassador Nides

Perhaps it’s a coincidence that I just finished reading Richard Heideman’s new book, “The Bloody Price of Freedom” last week, the same week in which U.S. Ambassador Thomas Nides said that he was “infuriated” by settlement growth....

 

The Jew will always remain

Dear Editor: I read Daniel Greenfield’s article on ADL leaders Greenblatt and Eileen Hershenov (Feb. 18, 2022, “Meet the Obama mentor and Soros lawyer heading up the ADL’s civil rights”). ADL is part of the problem because the white...

 

The West is selling out to Iran to lower gas prices

(JNS) — Like politics, wars can make for strange bedfellows. In the Second World War, even a staunch anti-Communist like Winston Churchill saw no problem with an alliance with the Soviet Union. Making common cause with a totalitarian state led by a...

 

Whose promised land?

(JNS) — The title immediately engaged my interest. “To Whom Was the Promised Land Promised?” by Abraham A. Sion focuses on the legal right of Jews under international law to the territory of “Palestine” and the British betrayal that...

A day at the museum

As many of you know, almost two years ago Rachel and I moved to New Orleans. As you also probably know, we lost her a little over a year ago to dementia. And, the “Let the Good Times Roll” city shut down shortly after we arrived due to Covid....

 

'Never Again' is shorthand for – for what, exactly?

(JTA) — Seventy-nine years ago this month, crowds twice filled Madison Square Garden for a pageant, “We Will Never Die,” meant to draw attention to the slaughter of Europe’s Jews by the Nazis. Screenwriter Ben Hecht organized the spectacle...

 

Ukraine, Russia and the unbearable lightness of 'never again'

(JTA) — After decades of fearing that we would forget the horrors of our recent past, I am starting to fear the opposite possibility: that we Jews remember our history all too well but feel powerless to act on its lessons.  The Russian invasion...

 

Russia's elite know the time to run is now

(JNS) — The news coming out of Russia these days sounds taken from a particularly gloomy dystopian novel, or perhaps from the Soviet era. The state — far from a model of democracy to begin with — has deteriorated in a matter of weeks into a...
