  • Al Gore’s Moral Confusion

    By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    July 6, 2010 | 11:30 am

    To Al Gore’s detractors he is many things. An annoying gasbag. A self-righteous know-it-all. A braggart who invented the internet. A fraud who promoted global warming as an international hoax.

    Such exaggerated criticism would explain why many believe the as-yet unsubstantiated... read on

  • Op-Ed: Tom Friedman must apologize for slandering Israel

    By  Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    July 1, 2010 | 12:32 pm

    I don’t often read Tom Friedman in The New York Times. True, he is one of the most lucid writers in America, and his crystal-clear prose helps in understanding some of the world’s most intractable conflicts. He can also be repetitive, tiresome and a little too in love with his... read on

  • What McChrystal’s Firing Says about American Values

    It seems I’m one of the few Americans who was appalled at the firing of General Stanley McChrystal. In a rare moment of unity, pundits on both the left and right supported the President relieving the general of command. The arguments were uniform (no pun intended). If the President... read on

    Leading British politicians have been running to defend BP from unwarranted American attack and “bashing Britain.” First we stole their tea. Now we disparage their oil. The nerve.

    Leading the charge was London Mayor Boris Johnson who said there is “something worrying about the... read on

  • Helen Thomas and the Open Season on Israel

    By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    June 7, 2010 | 4:27 pm

    Helen Thomas’s stomach-turning comments about the Jews returning to Germany and Poland, where six million were gassed and cremated into piles of ash, are striking for their racism and insensitivity. Whether she said them out of senility or anti-Semitism are beside the point. Either... read on

  • The Provocative ‘Peace’ Flotilla that Ended in Tragedy

    By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    June 2, 2010 | 10:39 am

    Judaism’s highest value is human life. Every life. There is no difference between a Jewish life and a Palestinian life. All are of infinite value before G-d. As a Jew and as a Rabbi I proclaim loudly and unapologetically that I see all Arabs as my brothers under G-d. We are all one... read on
