    By Rabbi Jeffrey K. Salkin

    July 10, 2013 | 9:26 am

    A number of years ago, I attended a rather large gathering of Jews. On Shabbat, I found myself sitting at a table with a group of ultra-Orthodox Jews, including some rabbis, who hailed from Brooklyn.

    Right after motzi, some of them started talking about what we would now call the...

    April 20, 2012 | 3:34 pm

    There are some, including General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who have argued that Iran is a rational actor, and could therefore be reasoned with because it’s leaders will ultimately act based on self-interest. Fareed Zakaria recently wrote that the...

    University of California President Mark Yudof defended Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s right to speak at the university’s Berkeley campus.

  • Boycott Borat?

    By Adam Deutsch

    January 4, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    Does comedy nullify hatred? Does comedy grant allowance to bigotry, racism and, most of all, anti-Semitism?

    Nov. 3 began the opening weekend of the acclaimed "most hilarious movie ever": "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Khazakstan." After...

  • Monk Could Be Way to Mideast Peace

    By Larry Kasanoff

    July 29, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Next week, I am sponsoring a group of Israelis and Palestinians to spend a few weeks in a small village in southern France with a Buddhist monk named Thich Nhat Hanh. These two disparate groups of people do not know each other, but often feel hatred toward each other. Some of them...

    The report, headed, "Spielberg Fights Fire With Fire," quotes him as...

  • A Little Light Seeps Into Dark Times

    By Roberta Fahn Schoffman

    November 13, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    It is hard to recall such despairing times.

    A young Tel Aviv man spat three times on Yitzhak Rabin's memorial -- the same number as the bullets that felled him -- in front of a Channel 2 news crew a few days before the anniversary of his murder. Glaring swastikas were found splashed...

  • Reflections After the Fire

    By Harold Schulweis

    May 15, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    On May 7, at about 6:30 a.m., I was awakened by a call informing me that an incendiary bomb had been thrown through the stained-glass window of our sanctuary at Valley Beth Shalom. I rushed to the temple, only to find that our custodians, uninstructed by any temple official, had...

  • The Irrelevance of Arab Hatred

    By Larry Derfner

    August 22, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The consensus view of the intifada among Israelis, Diaspora Jews and American conservatives -- that it's caused by Arab hatred and rejection of Israel -- is nothing but a lousy excuse. An excuse to say Israel is wholly blameless in this affair, and there's nothing Israel can do...

    Homeland Insecurity

    In his editorial ("Homeland Insecurity," July 12), Rob Eshman suggests that the availability of legal guns in the United States should be seen as a problem when considering Muslim terror.

    When the Hutu and Tutsi tribes were slaughtering one another in Rwanda,...

    By David A. Lehrer

    July 4, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) just issued a report headlined, "Anti-Semitism on the Rise," announcing that "a strong undercurrent of Jewish hatred persists in America." The report cites data on anti-Semitic attitudes virtually unchanged from a decade ago, but slightly higher than...

  • Pope Blasted For Silence

    By Michael J. Jordan

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    When the Western-educated Bashar Assad succeeded his father, Hafez Assad, as president of Syria last summer, Israeli officials hoped the changing of the guard from the Lion of Damascus to the Optometrist of Damascus would usher in a gentler approach toward Israel.

    Young Assad has...

  • A Time to Mull

    By Rabbi Dov Fischer

    October 26, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    So it turns out that the Arabs of Judea and Samaria really hate the guts out of us Jews.

    For seven years, Israel had been engaging in confidence-building steps. Israel even gave Yasser Arafat weapons to build a police force and agreed to patrol in "joint Israeli-Palestinian patrols"...

  • ‘Hatred Is a ‘Process’

    By Rabbi Marvin Hier

    April 29, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    The tragedy that has engulfed Littleton, Colorado, is in fact a wakeup call for America -- too many of our schools have become killing fields. The question is whether we have gotten the message, and what our response should be.

    Undoubtedly, over the next few days and weeks, a...
