  • Zionism, anti-Zionism and the federal reserve

    March 14, 2012 | 2:33 pm

    Anti-Zionists insist their views aren’t anti-Semitic. They’re often lying; but anti-Zionism continues to gain respectability, even among Jews. This is a challenge Zionists aren’t adequately addressing.

    Patricia McAllister is a typical specimen. This former LAUSD substitute...

  • A Flawed Legacy

    January 14, 2009 | 12:47 pm

    The fact that George W. Bush is about the most unpopular president in history does not necessarily mean he is the worst president in history. Popularity is judged during one’s term in office, with all the immediacy of turbulent political passion. Historical judgment will rest on...

  • Two cheers for the Administration’s flawed anti-Semitism report

    April 10, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    Last month, the State Department issued its report on contemporary global anti-Semitism. There's much to admire in it, albeit with a significant reservation.

    It's a melancholy fact that such a report is necessary. Many American Jews of the post-war generation believed -- or at least...

  • Only democratization can fight Islamists

    June 28, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Natan Sharansky's June 5-6 Democracy and Security Conference in Prague could reinvigorate the commitment of the United States to support the growth of liberal democracy. If not, the Islamists win a crucial advantage.

    There are two basic foreign policy philosophies. The idealist...

  • We must stand for victory In Iraq

    March 22, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    It's gotten pretty lonely.

    A convention of Democrats who still support the Iraq war could be held, if not in a phone booth, then in a medium-sized walk-in closet.

    The argument among congressional Democrats now is just how fast to withdraw the troops. Even many Republicans have...

  • U.S Must Defend U.N. Terror Definition

    June 23, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Should the United States try to reform the United Nations, or give up on it? Tough choice.

    On the one hand, the United Nations is the only club that every nation can join. It has become the principal source of international law. It embodies humanity's hopes for international...

  • Why Kerry Lost

    November 4, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    How did it happen? How did a respectable candidate like Sen. John F. Kerry lose to President George W. Bush, the fumbling commander-in-chief and avatar of cronyism in government?

    Various explanations are possible, from the painfully obvious (Bush was seen as resolute, Kerry as...

  • Muslim Hate Is Self-Inflicted Harm

    January 15, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    The Arab and Iranian complaint that they are threatened and victimized by the Zionists is fascinatingly twisted. In fact, they do themselves considerable damage through their own anti-Semitism. Two recent examples come to mind.

    United States taxpayers paid for the liberation of...

  • Taking Stock of Post-Saddam Iraq

    October 30, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    These are interesting times for those of us who supported President Bush's decision to overthrow Saddam Hussein.

    Not only have no weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) been found, but it appears that Bush exaggerated the evidence of WMDs to gain congressional and popular support. Not...

  • Why Not Lieberman?

    March 6, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    What a difference two and a half years make. When Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore selected Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman as his running mate in 2000, there was a surge of Jewish pride and support. Now that Lieberman has announced his own candidacy in the 2004 presidential...
