  • Hillary, Israel and the Jews

    August 29, 2014 | 2:08 pm

    Last month, I read an opinion piece in a Jewish publication wrongfully accusing Hillary Clinton of being anti-Israel and not fighting for the issues that matter most to Jewish Americans. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Throughout her career, Hillary Clinton has fought for...

  • Israel, Palestinians locked in vicious circle of Gaza wars

    July 31, 2014 | 11:53 am

    When Israel ended its 38-year occupation of the Gaza Strip by withdrawing settlers in 2005, then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon hailed it as a "disengagement" from conflict with Palestinians in the densely populated coastal enclave.

    January 13, 2014 | 10:38 am

    I did not have sex with that bridge.

    What is it with these male politicos? And why are they all Jewish?

    The cloistered community that is Washington’s Jewish elite collectively choked a little...

  • Do men and women matter?

    By Dennis Prager

    July 17, 2013 | 11:48 am

    Most Americans do not realize that, as large as the issue of same-sex marriage is (and it is very large), there is an even larger issue at stake in the same-sex marriage debate.

    That issue is whether gender matters: Do male and female, man and woman, matter?

    I was thinking about writing ninety comments about Shimon Peres' 90th birthday celebration, but I got tired at nine. I should also say at the outset of this post that I am moderating a panel at the conference on Thursday. This means I'm walking a tightrope here, trying to be both...

  • “You Shall Not Stand Idly By?” America and Syria – What to Do?

    By Rabbi John Rosove

    May 5, 2013 | 8:00 am

    It should be clear that the last thing the Obama Administration wants is to get caught in another Middle Eastern war, with no “good guys” and no viable exit strategy. What else can explain American passivity in the face of 70,000 Syrian dead and 1 million refugees in two years?...
