Gaza on my mind

In 2007, over 2000 Qassam rockets and mortars were fired on Israel from Gaza. Sderot has become a ghost town. For unfathomable reasons, the Israeli government is unwilling to invest in proper shelters for the people of Sderot. It is also unwilling or unable to negotiate with the Hamas who control the Gaza strip, and yet at the same time is unwilling or unable to undertake a decisive military "solution."

O Jerusalem!

Many of our readers are not going to like this article. I need to preface it by stating that both my grandmothers were born in Jerusalem, and my parents grew up there. I have a deep appreciation of the significance of Jerusalem for Jews and Israel both in Jewish tradition and in the bloody history of the last hundred years. David Ben-Gurion rightly understood, in 1948, that without Jerusalem there could be no Jewish state. It is not only important for the Jews. The Christian and Muslim world will not accept that the Jews have returned to their land to stay until and unless they accept Jewish sovereignty over Jerusalem.

Peace talks get 18 rocket salute

Eighteen or nineteen Qassam rockets fell on the Western Negev this morning. The salvo came just after the Israeli government and defense establishment were congratulating themselves on the "success" of the policy of limited engagement in Gaza.

No Pasaran: Mukasey nomination and American fascist racism in 'radical' clothing

American Jews are justly proud of their glowing success and growing power. They glory in the number of Jewish senators and congressmen, Jews in the Fortune 500, Jews in academia and prominent Jews in the media. The latest and crowning glory of that success is the appointment of Michael Mukasey to the post of United States Attorney General. At the same time, that success has generated a rising and increasing vocal dark undercurrent of racism. Unlike antisemitism of the past, the antisemitism comes primarily from the the radical left. We all know that "Criticism of Israel and Zionism is not antisemitism," right? We also know that 'radical' leftists are not racists or bigots right? They fight for equality of all citizens don't they? The nomination of Mukasey, an orthodox Jew, was a test case of fairness in public debate for the liberal-left community in the US. They failed the test rather miserably.

Mukasey might not be everyone's favorite candidate for attorney general. He flubbed the waterboarding issue, and has an embarrassing association with the increasingly untouchable Rudi Giuliani. However, Mukasey did stand up to the Bush administration regarding the rights of Jose Padilla, and he has a distinguished record. Nobody can offer any concrete evidence that he allowed his political or religious views to interfere with the administration of justice.

Israel advocacy after the Iran NIE

There is no doubt that the recent US National Intelligence Estimate, which noted that Iran had stopped nuclear weapons development some time in 2003, stymied the Bush administration campaign to impose stiffer sanctions on Iran, though it should not have done so. As the Deputy Director of Intelligence hastened to clarify, Iran is not benign, and is probably going to build a bomb eventually. John Bolton and others, have charged that the estimate is an attempt to manipulate Bush administration policy, and that may be true. It is just as likely an oracular bureaucratic attempt to cover you know what. There is no doubt however, that it has been used and interpreted in that way.
