  • Israel Swaps With Hezbollah

    By Dan Baron

    January 29, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    Free at last, but at what price? That was the question on some Israelis' minds over the weekend after a German mediator helped seal the deal on a long-awaited prisoner swap between Israel and Hezbollah, the Lebanese militia group.

  • Hello, I Must Be Going

    By Luis Lainer

    January 22, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    There is something Marxist about Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's pledge to "disengage" Israel from the Palestinians through the completion of a security barrier and the evacuation of a few settlements. Just like Groucho Marx, Sharon is declaring his intention to leave and stay...

    By Dan Baron

    October 23, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    A picture may be worth a thousand words -- but not, it seems, when it comes to settling rival accounts of Middle East bloodshed.

    The Israel Air Force's (IAF) decision Tuesday, Sept. 21, to release classified footage of a series of anti-terrorist airstrikes in the Gaza Strip did...

  • 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...

  • Four Words Slow Fight Against Terror

    By James D. Besser

    October 9, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    At home, the Bush administration is trying to convince a dubious nation that it needs even more law-enforcement powers to wage an effective war against terrorism, and around the world it continues to wage an uphill battle to enlist the rest of the world in the fight. But those...

  • Bush, DeLay Views on Israel at Odds

    By Douglas M. Bloomfield

    August 7, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Are the two most powerful Republicans in Washington playing a version of the old good-cop, bad-cop game with Israel and its friends in this country?

    President Bush and House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) appear to be on different sides of the Middle East policy game. Both...

  • Morocco Bombings Shock Emigres

    By Philip Carmel

    May 22, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    For most Parisian Jews with roots in Casablanca, the news that their home community had been targeted by Islamic terrorists came like a bolt from the blue.

  • Sharon’s Dilemma: Which Peace Move?

    By Leslie Susser

    May 22, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    It has become a familiar equation: Hope for progress toward peace leads not to a drop in Palestinian terror attacks but to their acceleration. Throughout the 1990s, Palestinian terrorists often tried to sabotage the peace process by stepping up their attacks whenever progress seemed...

    By Rabbi Ed Feinstein

    May 8, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    "Od lo avda tikvataynu."

    A poster of Moshe Dayan hung in my childhood bedroom. Growing up in the light of the Six-Day War, I adored this new Jewish hero -- tough, cocky, a Jew without fear. A generation later, we venerated Yitzchak Rabin -- the warrior peacemaker, the realistic...

    When 14-year-olds Kobi Mandel and Yosef Ishran were found brutally stoned to death by Palestinian terrorists on May 9, 2001, Jews around the world mourned. For L.A. residents Roz and Jerry Rothstein, the tragedy was the last straw.

    The husband and wife team gathered nearly 50 Jewish...

    December 12, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    I once appeared in court to ask that three additional defendants be held liable on a judgment.

    The judge was skeptical -- until I showed him that the additional defendants had forged both a set of articles of incorporation and a doctor's business license.

    The judge looked at the...

  • Once More, With Feeling

    By Rob Eshman

    September 19, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    While we Americans debate the cost and benefit of a war with Iraq, we American Jews must not kid ourselves: the second front in America's war against Iraq will be Tel Aviv, not Tarzana.

    It is true that Americans will probably die in any confrontation, and that terrorists inspired or...

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The big new Ford Excursion sat baking in the hot afternoon sun. A closer look at this massive vehicle was chilling. Gun ports cut into the thick bullet-resistant glass windows. Armor-reinforced doors so heavy you needed two hands to close them. Rear seats removed to make room for...

    To begin to understand the "strategy" behind killing innocent college students, visit the part of Mt. Herzl cemetery in Jerusalem that one rabbi there calls, "the burial area for the nation's unborn victims."

    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...

    April 5, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Have you ever been to the funeral of a 10-month-old? It has to be one of the most unnatural of human experiences. The burial of an infant who was deliberately murdered by terrorists is all the more tragic for the baseless hate it represents.

    On Sunday, in the ancient cemetery of...
