    By Michael Berenbaum

    June 9, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    If recent press reports regarding the government case against two former American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) employees are to be believed, then I am increasingly outraged at the government's case, AIPAC's response and the silence of the American Jewish community.

  • Rabbis Call for Day of Fasting for Darfur

    By Julie G Fax

    By Gil Sedan

    April 7, 2005 | 8:00 pm

  • Unilateral Withdrawal

    By Larry Derfner

    February 17, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    I, along with what the polls say is 60 percent of Israelis -- and maybe even Ariel Sharon, too -- trust Mahmoud Abbas' good intentions. More than that, I'm impressed by what he's done on the ground -- by prevailing on Hamas and the other terrorist groups to "cool down" the violence...

    August 12, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    The best line in the 1992 movie, "Unforgiven," is when Gene Hackman is looking up into Clint Eastwood's shotgun and moans, "I don't deserve this ... to die like this," and Eastwood snarls back, "Deserve's got nothin' to do with it."

    That exchange is the only way to make sense of what...
