    By Tom Tugend

    By Leslie Susser

    "I'm just so tired," Israeli author Orly Castel-Bloom says. She's not speaking about the effects of her recent flight into Paris, where she has come to deliver some lectures. Nor is it the interviews she has given since landing earlier in the day, although that has zapped her, too....

  • From Durban to Beersheba

    By Harold Brackman

    September 2, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    The horrid bus bombings in Beersheba on Tuesday, which claimed the lives of 16 Israelis, including a 3-year-old boy, are grim reminders that the war on terror continues to rage in Israel.

    Indeed, in 2004, the month of September has klal Yisrael reeling from this brutal attack and...

  • Fear or Fury?

    By Rabbi N. Daniel Korobkin

    September 2, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    It's hard to believe that a whole year has passed. Almost one year ago to the day, Dr. David Appelbaum and his daughter, Nava, were murdered when a suicide bomber exploded himself at Cafe Hillel in Jerusalem. Dr. Appelbaum, 50, was the head of emergency medicine at Shaarei Tzedek...

  • Israeli Fest Crowd Feels the Heat

    By David Finnigan

    May 6, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Brutal heat was the dominant feature of the May 2 Israel Independence Day Festival in Van Nuys, as 99-degree temperatures kept thousands indoors and away from the sprawling Woodley Park celebration.

    "I think it was the heat," said festival organizer Jerome Goodman, who added that...

  • Will Sheik’s Assassination Bring Stability?

    By Leslie Susser

    March 25, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    No one believes Israel is a safer place just after the assassination of Sheik Ahmad Yassin, leader of the terrorist group Hamas.

    The question is whether the assassination and continued Israeli pressure on Hamas will contribute to stability over time.

    In targeting Yassin, Israeli...

  • U.S. Should Support Right to Build Fence

    By Rep. Henry Waxman

    February 12, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    Attacks on Israel are escalating again. With another deadly suicide bombing in the heart of Jerusalem, the race to thwart the infiltration of terrorists is up against yet another rush: to condemn Israel at the United Nations.

    This time, the forum is the United Nations' International...

    Yechezkel Chezi Goldberg, a Jerusalem-based counselor for adolescents and families at risk, wrote the following essay in 2001. On Jan. 29, Goldberg was murdered in a Jerusalem bus bombing.

    The scene: 7:30 a.m. Israel time, Sunday, Dec. 2, 2001 -- eight hours after a triple terror...

  • Israel Addresses Fence Concerns

    By Ron Kampeas

    October 16, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Israel is plotting each meter of its security fence with great care and consideration, Israeli officials say -- not just to keep terrorists out, but to keep the United States on Israel's side.

    With the Bush administration close to Israel on most other issues of Middle East...

  • Our Heroes and Theirs

    By Jonathan Medved

    September 11, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Last night's terror struck close to home. The boom of the blast at Cafe Hillel on Emek Refaim shook the windows of our house and left no doubt that we were hit again -- this time in our own neighborhood. Our son, Yossi, was on the phone with his brother, Momo, asking when he would be...

  • How the Other Half Lives

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    September 11, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Call it "Trading Places." In Shakir Yusif Farsakh's surreal "Convergence," an Israeli commander and a Palestinian suicide bomb squad leader dream about the pain their acts inflict.

    Farsakh, 41, is uniquely qualified to write the story: He is the son of a Brooklyn Jewish mother and a...

  • Both Sides Need to Stay on the Path

    By Daniel Sokatch

    August 21, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    The terrorist who blew himself up on a crowded Jerusalem bus Tuesday night did more than murder 20 Israelis and injure more than 100 others.

    As was undoubtedly his intent, he also dealt a serious, perhaps fatal, blow to the struggling, fragile "road map" peace process. The horror of...

  • Suicide Bombings Threaten Cease-Fire

    By Gil Sedan

    August 14, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    The suicide bombings that hit Israel this week shattered the relative calm that had taken hold in Israel and the West Bank this summer. How they will affect the cease-fire declared by Palestinian terrorist groups and implementation of the "road map" peace plan is anybody's guess.

  • Bombing Shatters Lives, Peace Moves

    By Naomi Segal

    June 12, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    The fragile peace efforts launched a week ago at the Middle East summit in Aqaba, Jordan, appeared to be unraveling at a dizzying pace this week, as Israel and the Palestinians were drawn back into a familiar and bloody pattern of violence and retaliation.

    In the latest day of...

  • Rules of Engagement

    By Rob Eshman

    May 30, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The return of suicide bombings following Israel's military campaign in the West Bank demonstrates, among other things, that Israel and its supporters are in this struggle for the long haul.

    And as the time span increases, so does the chance of dissension within the Jewish community.

    Generals, it is said, are always preparing to fight the last war, and so it also may be for American Jews.

    Middle East terror and Palestinian suicide bombings have roused us to action. The torpor is receding. Except, we can't quite agree on which last war we expect to be fighting:...

  • Light One Candle

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    December 6, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    By rights, this should be a one-candle Chanukah.

    Tradition tells us, of course, that we light two candles on the first night, three the next, and so on for eight days. In all, Jews would ordinarily light 44 candles over next week.

    But after the World Trade Center attacks and the Ben...

  • Islam Hijacked

    By Reuven Firestone

    September 27, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    The queries have come in steadily since the great increase in suicide bombings by Muslim Palestinians during the past year, but since Sept. 11, they have come virtually non-stop. "Does Islam condone suicide? Does Islam condone killing noncombatants? Does Islam teach that a martyr who...
