  • Israel doesn’t do ethnic profiling like Trump thinks it does

    September 20, 2016 | 12:15 pm

    July 27, 2016 | 3:48 pm

    July 20, 2016 | 12:59 pm

    After the July 14 attack on the Bastille Day celebration in Nice, France, one of the more quizzical pieces of internet flotsam to bubble up was a 2014 interview with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that made rounds on social media.

    By Shmuel Rosner

    July 18, 2016 | 4:31 am

    One of the most famous, and no doubt most overused stories of Israel’s short history of journalism, is about a news editor in the long-defunct newspaper Davar. It is a story that refuses to die, even though according to all attempts to verify it, the story never happened. At least...

    July 15, 2016 | 10:48 am

  • Breaking Bodies

    By David Suissa

    July 14, 2016 | 9:06 pm

    Leave my body alone.

    This is my thought when I see terror.

    I don’t care if it’s a truck, a gun, a knife, a bomb.

    Just leave my body alone.

    Do not slice my flesh.

    Do not splinter my bones or explode my arteries.

    Do not rape my muscles and ligaments.

  • The occupation that killed Hallel Yaffa Ariel

    By David Suissa

    July 1, 2016 | 8:34 am

    It’s not the disputed occupation of the West Bank that convinced a 17-year-old Palestinian teenager to stab a 13-year-old Jewish girl to death while she was sleeping. 

    Rather, it’s the corrosive and longtime occupation of Palestinian hearts and minds with vicious, genocidal...

  • Forget Brexit. Remember rain.

    By Marty Kaplan

    June 27, 2016 | 9:04 am

    I was startled to see Laura Haim’s face on TV. It made sense that she’d be on cable news last week; as White House correspondent for the French network Canal Plus, she was well placed to tell Americans the French reaction to Brexit. What brought me up short was that I’d forgotten...

  • 5 comments on how to stop the lone-wolf terrorist

    By Shmuel Rosner

    June 14, 2016 | 4:16 am


    A lone-wolf terrorist cannot always be stopped. A man can get a knife – he can grab one from the kitchen – go out the street and stab another man or woman. A man can find a gun – buy one, steal one, own one – and go on an unexpected rampage, with no warning signs. If the man...

  • Yes, the Orlando attack has to be politicized

    By Shmuel Rosner

    June 13, 2016 | 5:31 am

    It is clear to all observers that the choice of words in talking about the heinous crime in Orlando – the cold blooded murder of 49 innocent Americans – is meaningful. The question of whether this was an act of terrorism, or a hate crime, or both – as was President Obama’s choice –...
