    'Munich' Still Topic of Debate

    Even with Republican sponsors and a largely Republican audience, the panelists at a recent discussion on Steven Spielberg's "Munich" covered most of the spectrum from left to right.

    At the event, held at Pepperdine University's School of Public Policy...

  • The Day a New Terrorism Was Born

    By Tom Tugend

    February 23, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    The modern era of global terrorism was launched on Sept. 6, 1970, when Palestinian hijackers tried to seize four commercial airliners bound for New York and land them at a remote landing strip in the Jordanian desert.

    Until Sept. 11, the date was known as "the blackest day in...

  • A Bitter Pill for Europe to Swallow

    By Dinah Spritzer

    February 16, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    A Danish employee of the European Union in Brussels confides that she is so fearful of Muslim anger over the now-infamous cartoons of the prophet Mohammed in a Danish newspaper that she is afraid to go home.

    Unnerved Danish members of the European Parliament refuse to comment on...

    By Robert David Jaffee

    February 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    As master of ceremonies of "Middle East Comic Relief 2," Peter the Persian, a stout Iranian American comic who moonlights as a labor attorney, says of the comedians performing on a recent evening, "We've screened all these Middle Easterners. We've cleared them out. They're all Jewish...

  • Franklin Sentencing Seen As Ominous

    By Ron Kampeas

    January 26, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    It was surprising enough that the judge quadrupled the prosecution's recommended sentence for Lawrence Franklin, from three years to more than 12.

    But the true bombshell at the sentencing on Jan. 20 of the former Pentagon analyst, who is at the center of the case involving...

  • Indifference Enables Moscow Shul Attack

    By Lev Krichevsky

    January 19, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Jewish leaders have blamed Russian authorities, law enforcement agencies and societal attitudes for the Jan. 11 stabbing attack at a Moscow synagogue, saying that the authorities have not responded properly to previous anti-Semitic and hate incidents.

  • U.S. Must Act on Iran Nuclear Threat

    By Rep. Brad Sherman

    December 15, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    Outrageous statements by Iran's president calling for Israel's destruction put Iran back on the front page for a few days in October. Such belicose rhetoric should surprise no one; the destruction of Israel has been Iranian state policy since the 1979 revolution.

    What should be...

  • Judgment on ‘Munich’

    By Tom Tugend

    December 15, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    "Munich" ranks as one of those movies that has been analyzed by so many and, so far, seen by so few. All the buzz and fuss isn't about the quality, pacing, acting, music and cinematography of the movie. After all, "A Steven Spielberg Film" carries the imprimatur of the Hollywood gold...

  • There’s a New Deputy in Town

    By Tom Tugend

    November 3, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    Competition for postings to Los Angeles is fierce within the Israeli Foreign Ministry, and two young diplomats who made the grade, Yaron Gamburg and Gilad Millo, have joined the staff of the consulate general here.

    October 13, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Lawrence Franklin's plea-bargain pledge to cooperate with the U.S. government in its case against two former American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) officials was put to the test as soon as it was made.

    "It was unclassified and it is unclassified," Franklin, a former...

  • U.S. Needs Time Frame on Iraq Mission

    By Sen. Russ Feingold

    October 13, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    It's been nearly two and a half years since the president gave a triumphant speech about

    Iraq before a banner declaring, "Mission Accomplished."

    But while he was right to celebrate the skill and bravery of the U.S. military forces that deposed Saddam Hussein, he was wrong about...

  • A Smile Can Be Key to Temple Security

    By Ron Wolfson

    September 29, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Will you feel safe going to synagogue this New Year?

    The High Holidays bring a special dilemma to American congregations. Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur attract more Jews to synagogue -- and more attention to American Jews in general -- than at any other time of year.

    The very...

    By David Finnigan

    September 22, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    For such an occasion, Temple Isaiah and other Southern California synagogues have installed panic button-style...

  • We Must Show Unified Pullout Support

    By Rabbi Harvey J. Fields

    August 11, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Four years ago, on July 22, 2001, with the goal of coming together as a unified Jewish community, we stood with 10,000 others on a closed-off section of Wilshire Boulevard for a solidarity Rally in support of the people of Israel. At a time of shattered hopes and violence, Jewish...

  • Fence in Jerusalem May Face Barriers

    By Leslie Susser

    July 21, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    A year after the U.N.-affiliated International Court of Justice at The Hague ruled that Israel's West Bank security barrier was illegal, controversy over the section in and around Jerusalem could spark new international pressure on the Jewish state to change the fence route or stop...

  • Entrapment, Surrender and Silence

    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.

  • First Lady Jostled in Jerusalem

    By Dan Baron

    May 26, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    She may have brought a message of American goodwill toward Muslims, but Laura Bush spent a potential high point of her Middle East tour fending off protests from Palestinians angered by U.S. policies -- and from Israelis, too.

    After arriving from Jordan, the first lady toured...

  • Hezbollah Faces Identity Crisis

    By Gil Sedan

    May 19, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Hezbollah's most valuable asset in Lebanon's election campaign is none other than its historic foe, Israel.

    On the eve of elections, scheduled to begin May 29, Hezbollah is trying to retain its pose as the ultimate guardian of Lebanese interests vis-á-vis Israel, stoking a flare-up...

  • Rabbis Call for Day of Fasting for Darfur

    By Julie G Fax

    May 19, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Because the quintessential Jewish celebration -- of life, of survival, of victory -- always involves food, it only makes sense that a Jewish response to tragedy involves fasting.

    Rabbis from all denominations are calling upon Jews in Los Angeles to participate in a day of fasting,...

  • Abbas Tries to Prove His Strength

    By Gil Sedan

    April 7, 2005 | 8:00 pm

     

    Four months after he was elected president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas is fighting for his political life -- and possibly for the survival of the peace process.

    Last week, Abbas fought off militants' attempts to challenge the authority of the Palestinian...

  • 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...

  • Bush Mideast Plan Gets Tepid Response

    By Ron Kampeas

    February 10, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    Like any first-born confronted with the end of only-child status, the pro-Israel community in Washington is learning to deal with the Bush administration's new baby -- a plan for a viable Palestinian state.

    Many of Israel's friends on Capitol Hill maintained a sullen silence last...

    On Wednesday, Sharon and his small Security Cabinet decided to restore ties. But aides...

  • One People, One Vote

    By Rob Eshman

    January 13, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    Anyone hungry for good news in the world could have sat down to a full meal this week on word of the Palestinian election.

    Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas received 62 percent of the vote in Sunday's election to replace the late Yasser Arafat.

    It is rare that things go as planned...
