    By Ron Kampeas

    September 19, 2008 | 3:18 pm

    WASHINGTON (JTA)—Just when you thought it was safe to put the issue of Iran back in the bipartisan closet, out it roars into a food fight between the Republicans and Democrats.

    The two parties are tussling over who should have appeared at a Jewish-sponsored anti-Iran rally next week...

    NEW YORK (JTA)—Sarah Palin is being disinvited from the Jewish-sponsored Iran rally, sources told JTA.

  • Who you calling rebbetzin, why you dissing Palin, what college anti-Semitism?

    September 17, 2008 | 11:31 pm

    The Rabbi's Spouse

    In her recent story, Danielle Berrin contemplates the role of the clergy's spouse ("Who You Calling Rebbetzin?" Sept. 12).

    It seems that one of the downsides is being misunderstood.  
     
    I repeatedly emphasized to Danielle that my voluntary role in our...
  • One-Day U

    September 17, 2008 | 11:13 pm

    Maybe it was because I had just helped my daughter move into her freshman dorm room and I was envious of the deliciously named courses she was thinking of taking. Or maybe it was because I've always been a sucker for pitches like "Conversational Hebrew in One Day!" Or maybe it was...

    By Ron Kampeas

    September 16, 2008 | 6:47 pm

    WASHINGTON (JTA) -- The mounting anxiety over Iran’s nuclear program is sparking campaign chatter over a possible Israeli strike and prompting a bipartisan effort to revive long-stalled sanctions legislation in the U.S. Congress.

    Time is running out, say advocates of new...
  • Shock, awe and lies on the campaign trail

    By Raphael J. Sonenshein

    September 14, 2008 | 4:40 pm

    Can open lying be a good campaign strategy? That's the question that political junkies are weighing this week.

    Politics is not science. Political statements are not "peer reviewed" for accuracy. That being said, I've never seen a campaign engage in such open, easily countered...
  • Campus hate—while down —is still a problem, wailin’ on Palin

    September 11, 2008 | 12:54 am

    Quiet War at UCI

    We agree with the Sept 5 letter from five UCLA academics that anti-Zionism/anti-Semitism at UCLA is less severe than that at UC Irvine ("Quiet War on Campus," Aug. 22).

    However we commend The Journal for running [Brad] Greenberg's review of the situation on...
  • Post-Palin Depression

    By Marty Kaplan

    September 11, 2008 | 12:26 am

    A therapist I know -- OK, since you dragged it out of me, my therapist -- told me that I'd be astonished if I knew how many emergency calls she got the night that Sarah Palin gave her convention speech.

    Actually, I wasn't that surprised. Judging from the number of unnerved post-Palin...

  • Reading about Queen Esther helped guide Palin

    September 11, 2008 | 12:14 am

    If there was any doubt that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) will shake up Washington and institute real change, the selection of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as the Republican vice presidential nominee has put that question to rest. Few people can match McCain's maverick spirit and bipartisan...

    By Ron Kampeas

    September 10, 2008 | 3:13 pm

    WASHINGTON (JTA)—Joe Biden, all wrong on Israel? Sarah Palin, a Jewish woman’s worst nightmare?

    Republicans and Democrats campaigning for the Jewish vote have flipped the traditional role of the vice-presidential candidate from “attack dog” to fresh meat.

    Campaign attacks typically...

  • The Palin nomination: What does it mean?

    By Raphael J. Sonenshein

    September 9, 2008 | 6:01 pm

    My blog won't be as frequent this fall, since I'm in Paris on a Fulbright. So with time zones and stuff, I'm off kilter. But I'm still following things like crazy!

    Obviously, the big news is the Sarah Palin nomination. I think it's very revealing, and let me tell you why. I think...
  • Ed Koch backs Obama, says Sarah Palin is ‘scary’

    September 9, 2008 | 2:25 pm

    NEW YORK (JTA)—Back in June,  Ed Koch was holding out on whether to endorse Barack Obama. Now the former Big Apple mayor—a Democrat who has endorsed Republicans, including President Bush in 2004—is on board (see full endorsement below).

    What changed? Apparently, according to...

    September 9, 2008 | 1:46 am

    NEW YORK (JTA)—The political campaign season is now in high gear as the curtain falls on the Democrats in Denver and the Republicans in Minneapolis-St. Paul.

  • McCain team: Palin rejects views of church’s Jews for Jesus speaker

    By Ben Harris

    September 3, 2008 | 4:48 pm

    NEW YORK (JTA)—Vice presidential pick Sarah Palin says she doesn’t share the views of a Jews for Jesus leader who in a speech at her church suggested that violence against Israelis resulted from God’s judgment against Jews who have failed to embrace Jesus.

    David Brickner, the...

  • The Hollywood candidate is not Obama

    By Marty Kaplan

    September 1, 2008 | 4:37 am

    If John McCain wins this election, it will be because of Hollywood.

    It’s not that Hollywood is giving him big money (it isn’t); or that big celebrities are attracting attention to him (they’re not); or that star writers and directors are helping him with stagecraft and wordsmithery...

  • McCain surrogates likely to echo Bush on Iran and Israel

    By Ron Kampeas

    August 29, 2008 | 6:05 pm

    DENVER (JTA)—John McCain’s campaign has walked a fine line between upholding the values of the GOP base that still reveres George W. Bush, while repudiating the legacy of the most unpopular president in modern history.
