    How much blame does Israel deserve for the tragic situation it finds itself in? If you listen to thinkers like celebrated author and peace activist David Grossman, quite a bit. 

    “Why, for these past few years,” Grossman asks in the New York Times, “has Israel avoided judicious...

  • Why I side with Israel

    Is it OK to take sides in a war? Is it OK to side with a country you love, a country whose values you believe in, a country that celebrates life but is being attacked by enemies who glorify death?

    When I first heard the tragic news that the three kidnapped Israeli boys had been murdered by Palestinian terrorists, my immediate instinct was to cry out for revenge. What other sentiment could I have? How else to respond to such cruelty? Should we not punish the murderers and...

    Every time I see something in the Middle East that disgusts me, it’s usually associated with men. It’s not that women can’t be violent and evil, or that men can’t be compassionate and kind. It’s simply that the vast majority of evil in that part of the world — or, for that matter,...

  • Mort Klein on peace vs. hate

    By David Suissa

    June 18, 2014 | 12:51 pm

    A few days before we heard the horrible news of the three boys who got kidnapped in Israel, Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) leader Mort Klein visited the Jewish Journal offices to speak to our editorial staff.
