    By Lauren Bottner

  • Protest forces London Ahava store to close

    November 22, 2010 | 11:06 am

    An Ahava store in London was forced to close again after pro-Palestinian activists blocked the entrance.

    Two activists reportedly chained themselves to a cement-filled barrel and had to be removed by police, The Jerusalem Post reported.

    Ahava produces lotions and bath crystals using Dead Sea minerals on West Bank land claimed by the Palestinians. It has been the target of boycotts and protests worldwide.

    The same London store was forced to close twice in 2009, in September and December, due to protests in which activists locked themselves to the same barrels.

  • Opening the Floodgates of Hate

    By Rabbi Abraham Cooper

    January 10, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    In the overall scheme of things, the incident doesn't seem to merit more attention than the screaming headlines in England's tabloid press. After all, with the world anxiously awaiting the next terrorist shoe to drop on civilization, why make a big deal over "private" comments made...

    British film director Stephen Frears was drawn to "Liam," about the making of an anti-Semite, partly because of a startling family secret he discovered in his late 20s.

  • LettersNo to Peace Now

    May 15, 1997 | 8:00 pm

    Regarding "Opposing Har Homa" by Richard Gunther (March 28), I believe that people like Richard Gunther hinder a peace process. They make true compromise more difficult as it is seen as a sign of internal strife and weakness. Unfortunately, Mr. Gunther would not be in Israel to...
