The Catholic church, which does so much good, has declared Antisemitism to be a sin, but there are some within the hierarchy who always know the source of the Church's problems: It's "the Jews." Consider the following report in The New York Times of April 3, 2010." "Last week, the center-left daily newspaper LA Republica wrote, without attribution, that certain Catholic circles believed the criticism of the church stemmed from a New York 'Jewish Lobby.'"
Melanie Phillips has written a critique of me because I remain a Democrat and continue to support President Barack Obama, despite his recent statements regarding expansion of Israeli settlements and other matters relating to the Middle East conflict. Other conservative supporters of Israel, like Jonathan Tobin in Commentary, have joined her in attacking me as well.
My old friend Dennis Prager can’t understand why I don’t leave the left to join him on the right.
While every Jew in the world (along with every other person) certainly has the right to express an opinion about how the Jerusalem issue should be resolved, the State of Israel alone should make that important decision, since it involves the security of the state and its people.
The British Union cares less about journalists or freedom of the press than it does about blindly condemning the Jewish state...it has everything to do with anti-Israel bigotry.
I like Jimmy Carter. I have known him since he began his run for president in early 1976. I worked hard for his election, and I have admired the work of the Carter Center throughout the world. That's why it troubles me so much that this decent man has written such an indecent book about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
