  • New Books: World Hates Us, Let’s Eat

    By David Finnigan

    September 25, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Solid proof that Jew-hating is on the rise is the number of nonfiction titles publishers are releasing on the subject.

  • Where Lies the Real Cause of Anti-Semitism?

    By Hillel Halkin

    May 22, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    When we ask ourselves whether anti-Semitism is essentially one thing or many, just as when we ask ourselves whether or how it will cease -- when we ask, in other words, what must change to make it cease -- are we not really asking whether the real cause of anti-Semitism is to be...

  • A Libel That Holds No Truth

    By Dennis Prager

    April 3, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    Some Americans apparently believe that we have gone to war with Iraq "because of the Jews." Having written a book explaining anti-Semitism ("Why the Jews?

  • Jews Vulnerable in Muslim Lands

    By Rachel Pomerance

    March 27, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    As the U.S. military pounds Iraq, Jewish communities in Muslim countries may become increasingly vulnerable.

    By James D. Besser

    January 30, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    Like America at large, the American university is a teeming marketplace of ideas.
