  • This Week - Not Our Movie

    By Rob Eshman

    March 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    By launching a public, pre-Oscar campaign against the movie "Paradise Now," Jewish activists all but guaranteed that people who might not otherwise see the movie would now be curious to give it a chance.

    I was among the curious.

    "Paradise Now," written and directed by Hany Abu-Assad,...

  • What Makes Bombers Tick in ‘Paradise’?

    By Marc Ballon

    October 27, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    In his riveting new film, "Paradise Now," Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad paints an ugly picture of Israeli occupation and the harsh consequences he believes flow from it, namely suicide bombers. The movie, which won the Blue Angel Award for best European film at this year's...

  • Iran’s New Export—Suicide Bombers

    By Nooredin Abedian

    August 25, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Behind the horrible scenes left by four explosions in London on July 7, loomed a more fearsome reality: The perpetrators, most of them very young, had voluntarily turned themselves into living bombs. Europe experienced its first suicide bombings. More horrible yet, was that not even...

  • Pulling Plug on Hezbollah TV Is a Start

    By Avi Jorisch

    January 20, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    On Dec. 17, 2004, the State Department added al-Manar, the official television station of Hezbollah, to the Terrorism Exclusion List (TEL), effectively prohibiting it from broadcasting in the United States. While this action is welcome, it must be the beginning, not the end, of the...

  • 2004 Takes Some Unexpected Turns

    By James D. Besser

    December 30, 2004 | 6:59 pm

     

    There's nothing as risky as end-of-year predictions, as 2004 so painfully demonstrated.

    Twelve months ago, otherwise sober analysts were predicting a political upheaval among Jewish voters and that Howard Dean, the former Vermont governor, was a cinch to win the 2004 Democratic...

  • A Night at Cafe Hillel

    By Matthew Rosenbaum

    September 30, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Mangled metal and scattered limbs have a way of changing one's perspective.

    On a warm night in Jerusa-lem, my friends and I sat at Cafe Hillel on Emek Refaim Street, sipping coffee and beer, enjoying the glorious freedom of the Israeli drinking age of 18. We Americans were happy to...

  • Sheik Yassin and Me

    By Gil Sedan

    March 25, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    As a journalist, I met Sheik Ahmed Yassin twice during my visits to the Gaza Strip. The first time was when I attended a military court hearing in 1984, when Yassin was sentenced to 13 years in prison for anti-Israel activities.

    Only a year later Yassin was released in a...

  • Who’s to Blame for Terror?

    By Loolwa Khazzoom

    January 1, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    Like many hothead progressives around the world, I preach antiracism, teach multiculturalism and recognize the United States to be a politically and culturally imperialistic society.

    Proper revolutionary that I am, I have no problem with guerrilla warfare against oppressive regimes,...

    Syrians Struggle at U.N.

    A Syrian-led draft resolution condemning Israel is not getting support at the U.N. Security Council. Syria has been unable to convince Security Council members to vote on the resolution. Introduced Sunday, it criticizes Israel's attack that morning on a...

    Peace Rally

    Readers of David Finnigan's article, "Just a Peace Rally? Read the Fine Print," (Sept. 26), may have been left with the erroneous impression that the Progressive Jewish Alliance (PJA) did not support the recent "End the Occupation" rally in Hollywood primarily "out of...

  • State of Siege

    By Rob Eshman

    August 21, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Even if you've forgotten Mohammed al-Dura, hundreds of millions of Muslims haven't.

    This week, as suicide bombers killed more than 20 in Jerusalem and 17 in Iraq, it's hard to remember al-Dura, the 12-year-old boy shot and killed on Sept. 30, 2000, during an exchange of fire between...

  • Palestinians Face Hamas Dilemma

    By Larry Derfner

    June 19, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    The three young Fatah guerrillas in the West Bank city of Tulkarm, wearing masks and holding AK-47s, had just received advance payment to start a second career -- as Palestinian policemen fighting terror, according to an Arab journalist present. They were paid by aides of Mohammed...

  • Different Kind of Visit

    By Lilly Gohar Bolour

    April 30, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    I am in Israel for a few days to visit the victims of terrorist acts. I'm on my own, not with a group. It's the first time I've been in Israel with a purpose other than visiting family and enjoying myself. I'm not frightened but there is something unsettling to visit Israel this way....

  • Mixing Science and Politics Brews Hate

    By Dr. Benjamin Sachs

    January 2, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    It's bad enough that Israeli doctors are spending their lives in emergency rooms treating Jewish and Arab victims of suicide bombers. What really makes them heartsick these days, however, is that they also have to fend off mindless attacks from their scientific colleagues,...

  • Food for Thought

    August 8, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The motive driving suicide volunteers is revenge. They have stopped fighting to liberate Palestine.

    They have suspended the dream of a state. They now dream of killing as many Jews as possible, of revenge, of making life in Israel impossible -- and they truly believe they can do it....

  • U.N., Refugee Camps and Our Money

    By Rabbi Dov Fischer

    June 27, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Why is the United Nations running refugee camps like Jenin, for people who claim to be living in their own land? How could a refugee camp under U.N. auspices become a world center for recruiting and training suicide bombers? And why is the United States essentially bankrolling these...

  • In the Name of Love

    By  Orit Arfa

    March 28, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    I was looking through my closet this morning for a spring outfit to match the warmer weather, and I found his T-shirt. It's a red T-shirt with the Fox label -- Israel's closest version of the Gap. Once I had laughed that I'd dismissed him from my love life before I had a chance to...

  • Bombers and the Martyr Syndrome

    By Eric Silver

    December 6, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Palestinian suicide bombers killed a total of 28 bus passengers and young people in a four-day orgy of blood and vengeance that stretched from Haifa and Hadera in the North to Jerusalem in the South.

    The weekend's four human bombs brought to 30 the number of Palestinians who have...

  • Changes in Attitude

    By Eric Silver

    April 5, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    There were more police than customers in Jerusalem's Mahane Yehuda market last Friday morning, when Jewish families would normally stock up for the weekend. Downtown, the strolling, shopping and coffee-bar crowds had deserted the Ben-Yehuda pedestrian mall for the fashionable German...
