  • David Suissa: Fair-weather Zionists

    By David Suissa

    August 2, 2011 | 6:16 pm

    What do you do if an annoying and exasperating friend gets in trouble and really needs your help? And what do you do if that friend is also a blood relative, like Israel? I often ask myself that question about progressive, pro-Israel Jews who are furious at the direction in which...

  • The pro-Israel divide

    By Rob Eshman

    June 15, 2011 | 3:49 pm

    Every week, an e-mail circulates among hundreds of Jews in Los Angeles calling for my immediate firing. The subject line of a recent one was, “The L.A. Jewish paper needs a new Editor-in-Chief.”

    I know when this happens, because the author is always kind enough to copy me on the...

    February 8, 2011 | 10:21 am

    Jane Harman, a Jewish Democrat who made her reputation in Congress as a tough-talking advocate for carrying a big stick, is transitioning to the world of speaking softly.

    Harman, 65, a tireless advocate in Congress of both the U.S.-Israel relationship and of strengthening the...

  • Dilemma of pro-Israel groups: To talk Egypt or not?

    February 1, 2011 | 11:17 am

    As Egypt convulses, pro-Israel groups and U.S. Congress members are seized by the ancient maternal dilemma: If you have nothing nice to say, should you say anything at all?

  • Pro-Israel? DON’T ASK

    By Rob Eshman

    March 24, 2010 | 8:03 am

    I hate the term “pro-Israel.”

    Just saying it sounds like an apology. Do people describe themselves as “pro-Italy” or “pro-Iceland”? After all, Israel is no more or less a country than those are, no less than Argentina or Russia or Mexico. To have to describe oneself as...

    By Mel Levine

    March 20, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    In all my years in politics, I have not seen a candidate as gifted and transformative as Sen. Barack Obama. At a time when our country is divided and dispirited, one only needs to see the multigenerational, multiethnic and highly enthusiastic crowds at his rallies to sense that he...

    If there's one subject that can spark a juicy debate among lovers of Israel, it is what to do with these millions of Jesus-loving evangelical Christians who love Israel to death.

    Personally, I'm blinded by how everybody picks on Israel, which makes me desperate to find anyone who...

    On this side of the Mediterranean, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict plays out less like a war and a more like a team sport.

    That is to say, we don't pick up arms -- thank God -- we pick sides. And we follow our side, and root for it, thinking somehow our cheers will help push it...
