    Unforgiven?

    Words can elevate and words can destroy. There was a time when the Jewish community too glibly and carelessly disregarded words of accusation of sexual abuse against clergy. That was clearly wrong, and Gary Rosenblatt of The Jewish Week helped to correct that. The...

    Remove Labels

    The article "Political Activism Inspires Iranians" was very informative (Sept. 10). However, as one of the founders of the Beverly Hills Jewish Republicans, I was offended with the labeling of Jews as "Iranians."

    For too long, the leaders of the Jewish community have...

    September 9, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    U.S. Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania could hardly contain his delight as he addressed a packed ballroom at the Plaza Hotel while he was in New York for the Republican National Convention.

  • Bush Says Magic Word: Israel

    By Matthew E. Berger

    September 9, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    What's in a word?

    President Bush one-upped John Kerry by uttering the word "Israel" in his speech Sept. 2 accepting the Republican presidential nomination, but it's unclear whether the simple mention of the Jewish state will have any effect on Jewish voters.

    "Palestinians will hear...

  • JEWS DECIDE: 2004

    By Ron Kampeas

    August 26, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Republicans promise that a substantive, tough party platform this year will present Jewish voters with a sharp contrast from the relatively scrawny Democratic document -- but they may find that delving into details could prove devilish.

    The Bush campaign is emphasizing its adherence...

  • What about Iran?

    By Janine Zacharia

    August 19, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Last week in Baghdad, 30 Iranians were captured fighting for the militant Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr. A few days earlier, two trucks transporting weapons for Sadr's fighters were caught trying to drive into Iraq from Iran.

    NBC reported recently that "thousands" of Iranian-funded...

  • For Whom Poll Tolls

    By Raphael J. Sonenshein

    July 1, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    The Gallup Poll recently released its newest data on Jewish political attitudes, and it holds bad news for George W. Bush and for Republicans searching for Jewish votes. Based on polling from 1992 through May 2004 (of admittedly small, rolling samples of Jewish voters), the Gallup...

  • A Settler in Favor of Disengagement

    By David Margolis

    July 1, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    This is a soul-wrenching time for all of us who love the Land of Israel. Jewish homes and villages, farms and factories -- the settlement work of three decades -- are soon to be uprooted in Gaza. We know that more demolitions may be coming.

    Politically -- for the first time in the...

  • Kerry’s Flip-Flops on Israel Stir Concern

    By Rick Richman

    May 20, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    A Killer's Face

    The article, "Inmate Wants New Label to Avoid Hate" (April 9), was greatly offensive. I can accept the need to address the rights of Jewish prisoners. I am unable to accept opening The Journal only to see the face of a brutal killer. Not only did he kill a dear...

    March 11, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    By Rob Eshman

    February 26, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    If I were John Kerry, I would spend every spare moment standing in front of a mirror, practicing the speech I'm going to give in October when U.S. soldiers capture Osama bin Laden.

    The 2000 presidential election was a referendum on the future -- who did Americans believe could lead...

    With the death toll mounting in Iraq and the Israeli-Palestinian "road map" plan in tatters, the Bush administration and Congress want to put out other Middle East fires before they get out of control.

    Administration officials and lawmakers recently launched initiatives to sanction...

    By James D. Besser

    September 25, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    The recent clamor over Howard Dean's demand for U.S. "evenhandedness" in the Middle East was sweet music to the ears of Jewish Republicans, who hope 2004 will be a watershed in their long but frustrating effort to rally Jewish voters to their cause.

    But the Republicans could...

    Clark Looks for Jewish Money

    Retired Gen. Wesley Clark, who jumped into the crowded Democratic ring last week, isn't Jewish, but his Jewish roots could figure prominently in his strategy for winning the 2004 presidential nomination.

    The reason: Clark, a latecomer to the race,...

  • There’s No Alternative to Pursuing Peace

    By M.J. Rosenberg

    August 28, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    The bus bombing in Jerusalem demonstrates, as nothing else could, that there is no alternative to implementing President Bush's "road map" in all its parts. That means that the Palestinian Authority has to live up to its commitment to shut down the terror groups once and for all,...

  • Pro-Israel: Solidarity or Retail Politics?

    By James D. Besser

    July 10, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Pro-Israel lobbyists are patting themselves on the back these days for yet another congressional resolution declaring solidarity with the embattled State of Israel, and the kudos are justified.

    Pro-Israel resolutions these days are routinely passed with only token opposition;...

    By Leslie Susser

    July 3, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    As Israel and the Palestinians begin a long-awaited truce, both sides are holding their breath -- and wondering what the United States will do next to advance the "road map" peace plan.

    A double dose of optimism and skepticism led up to this week's summit at the Red Sea resort of Aqaba, but what really matters is what comes next.

    Hardened by past failures, Israelis and Palestinians alike recognize that there is still a long way to go, and a lot that could still go...

  • Silence on Tolerance Issue Stirs Concern

    By James D. Besser

    April 24, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Jewish leaders were uncharacteristically silent last week as Islamic groups raged against a Department of Defense decision to allow a notorious Islam basher to deliver a Good Friday sermon at the Pentagon.

    Part of that silence was an accident of timing: the controversy erupted at...

    Of course this Passover will be different from all other Passovers. This Passover is being broadcast on Fox News.

    December 5, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Republican leaders on Capitol Hill say they can't wait to prove their friendship for Israel. They'll get their chance when the new Congress convenes in January, but some may wish they could take a pass.
