  • “Who’s the more foolish? The fool, or the fool who follows him?” Clearly, this is a fraught time in Israel-Palestinian relations.  A third intifada may not happen, but violence is increasing.  Abbas– unable to achieve his goals despite grandstanding at the UN– is threatening to resign and let the Palestinian Authority fall apart (or fall to Hamas).  Many blame Israeli intransigence.  Settlements are the issue, some say.  ...
  • The UN is No Friend to Israel This Thursday, Palestine hopes to achieve non-member observer state status in the United Nations General assembly.  It is likely that they will succeed. This recognition continues a trend of what can be described as at best, cold, and at worst, hostile, relations between the United Nations and Israel. Throughout the United Nation’s history, Israel has been ...
  • 15 Seconds Even if you can’t fight with Israel, you can support her efforts online.  Please, share these posters with your friends.  Get the word out that Israel’s fight is a fight for self defense!
  • Rally to Support Israel! If you’re in Los Angeles, come out to support Israel this weekend!
  • War’s One Truth “War is hell.” There has never been and never will be a more apt description.  War is ugly.  It is bloody.  It is shameless.  It is unconscionable. And, sometimes, war is necessary. We cannot avoid war when our enemies pursue it so relentlessly and that is a shame.  Hamas has launched hundreds of rockets at Israel.  For a ...
  • Tell Us What You Really Think, Vincent Browne If you haven’t heard Vincent Browne’s inflammatory comments, check them out here.

When you called ...
  • Dishonest Discussions Drown out the Silence Last Saturday, the NYU’s New School hosted a troubling panel entitled “The Jewish-American Relationship with Israel at the Crossroads.”  The panel program explained that they were there to discuss the “possibility that increasing awareness of the conflict among the American Jewish community is creating a more critical stance towards Israel.”  This is an interesting topic ...
  • We Stand In what likely is a cosmic joke, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of Iran will be addressing the UN on the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, Yom Kippur. Likely, it’s just a complete accident and the irony is lost on Iran. If the day was chosen as an insult, it only shows the cowardice of the ...
  • Hanan Ashrawi Highlights the Hypocrisy of the Palestinian Plight Hanan Ashrawi has disgraced herself as a policy maker by whitewashing the suffering of the thousand of Jews thrown of their ancestral homes. She asserted in a recent interview that “Jews voluntarily and collectively left” Arab countries, “migrating to Israel after its establishment.”  Worse, she asserts, “Jews were not singled out, although there had been ...
  • “Free Speech Isn’t Free” Isn’t Just a Cliché My college’s quad is huge.  It’s one of those institutions that tries to hold true to the idea that students should eat, drink, go to classes, and live on the quad.  As you might imagine, then, it caused some serious consternation when a student hung the Confederate flag from his window.  I certainly wasn’t happy ...
