Don’t get me wrong: Selma is an important movie. It’s worth seeing. It shines much-need light on the Civil Rights Movement, focusing on the pivotal 54-mile march from the city of Selma to... read full article

  • Bibi must stop an Iran bomb even if it offends Obama

    By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    23 hours ago

    There is nothing wrong with an Israeli prime minister doing his utmost to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, even if it offends the sensibilities of the American president. A nation that has experienced the world’s worst genocide just 70 years ago has not just a right...

    I am carrying through here on my prior post about the Wong family by making visits on Xmas and New Year’s to their rented beach front manse (for one third of San Diego rents) in Rosarita Beach.

    Iran today is America’s greatest enemy, Israel’s greatest enemy, the Jewish people’s greatest enemy and the greatest enemy of moral civilization.

    There is, apparently, no evil that the Iranian Islamic regime will not engage in to further its ends.
