  • Our New Marranos

    By Judea Pearl

    March 18, 2009 | 6:17 pm

    Three years ago, in a column in this journal, I argued for the formula, “Anti-Zionism = Racism,” instead of the standard claim that anti-Zionism is a cover for anti-Semitism. My aim was to empower pro-Israel students with a more potent intellectual weapon to fight back the rising...

  • The forgotten miracle: Nov. 29, 1947

    By Judea Pearl

    December 18, 2008 | 3:47 am

    I originally planned to write a column about the flood of condemnations that Muslim leaders issued following the massacre in Mumbai, and how disappointed I was not to find a single fatwa in those texts, nor a mention of any religious offense: no "sin," no "hell," nor "apostasy."

    By Judea Pearl

    August 21, 2008 | 12:46 am

    I have often wondered why some of the best thinkers of our time refuse to believe in human progress. After all, there was a time when tens of thousands of ordinary citizens flocked to the gates of the Roman Coliseum to enjoy the sight of wild beasts tearing human beings to pieces....
  • Israel @ 60: Confronting denial

    By Judea Pearl

    June 19, 2008 | 2:30 pm

    Each year, in preparation for Israel’s birthday, newspaper editors feel an uncontrolled urge, a divine calling in fact, to invite Arab writers to tell us why Israel should not exist.

    This must give them some sort of satisfaction, such as we might have in inviting officials of the...

  • History disproves myth that founding Zionists were naive

    By Judea Pearl

    May 15, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    We are often told, mostly by anti-Israel propagandists, that the early Zionists' attitude toward the indigenous Arab population in Palestine was laden with ignorance, naivete, denial, contempt, abuse and outright oppression. Afif Safieh, the PLO representative to the United States,...
