    Listening to Colin Powell endorse Barack Obama, I had the same divided feelings I did last spring, when I heard him speak at my daughter's high school graduation.

    He had come because he knew the family of another senior in the class well enough to accept the invitation. An hour...
  • From the people who brought you the Iraq war comes . . . The ALL NEW Cold War

    By Raphael J. Sonenshein

    Wait a minute: I thought the greatest threat to the American way of life was Saddam Hussein?  OK, he’s dead. 

    Then the greatest threat must be leaving Iraq.  But now President Bush seems ready to adopt Barack Obama’s withdrawal timetable.  Hold it, it’s Iran.  We have to be ready...

  • Nancy Pelosi gets pilloried at AJU

    By Danielle Berrin

    August 14, 2008 | 6:37 pm

    In lieu of the praise one might expect in a room full of women and the ceiling-smashing Nancy Pelosi, insults were hurled towards the stage.

    “Traitor!” screamed one woman. “Liar!” shouted another. One man’s high-volume, breakneck rampage got him physically removed from...

  • Butt flag fever, Orthodox crawl, what to expect, propaganda

    Flag Skirts

    I was very interested in the subject matter of the young people of the United States going to Israel on the Birthright program (Cover, July 18).

    However, am I the only paranoid Jew who found it offensive? Since when is it appropriate to drape a flag (from any country)...

    By Marty Kaplan

    July 24, 2008 | 1:16 am

    “The world is waiting to love America again” ran the title of a recent London Observer editorial anticipating Barack Obama’s visit to Europe.

    Love may be too strong a word to describe the world’s feelings for America when George W. Bush was first sworn in as president, but not by...

    As the Bush presidency winds down, there are probably only two things that could make a difference in the November election. American forces could capture Osama bin Laden, or we could end up in a war with Iran.

    Certainly, bin Laden's capture would be popular. The political...

  • Torture: What did we know, and when did we know it?

    By Raphael J. Sonenshein

    June 27, 2008 | 7:19 pm


    “After years of disclosures by government investigations, media accounts, and reports from human rights organizations, there is no longer any doubt as to whether the current administration has committed war crimes.  The only question that remains to be answered is whether those...

  • [VIDEO] If Baruch Obama and Dick Cheney are cousins, what about us?

    By The Web Guy

    October 23, 2007 | 10:33 pm

    I’ve said it before, we—Jews—are family.

    We are the children of Avraham Avinu (Abraham Our Father) and some of us are descendants of the first Jewish priest—the first Cohen—Aaron, brother of Moshe Rabbenu (Moses Our Teacher.)

    It’s all there in Jon Entine’s cutting-edge new book,...

  • California’s New Energy Chief

    By Melissa Minkin

    The day after Vice President Dick Cheney said the best way to meet the country's energy demands was to increase fossil fuel production, reconsider nuclear power, and soften environmental laws, S. David Freeman went to Sacramento to prove him wrong.

    Freeman, who left the top post at...
