    "What?"

    "That there is really some terrorist conspiracy poised against the United States."

    There was a short silence. I took a deep breath, not...

  • A Just War May Be Great Risk to Israel

    By Rabbi Joel Rembaum

    March 27, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    There are very few people I know who have an unambiguous perspective on this war. I think we are quite unanimous in our belief that Saddam Hussein is a bad guy who should go -- for the sake of his own people and all the people in the Middle East.
