The Unabashed Zionist.

Remember Professor Andrew Pessin?

A Tree Living Without a Forest.

I have in the past been accused of conflating the State of Israel with the Jewish people and very much hope to get so-accused heading into the future for a long, long time to come. While it is true that Israel is not directly synonymous with the Jewish people – …

An Open Letter to a Jewish Friend in England

I don’t know, Kate. Sometimes it just seems pointless. Sorry to be downbeat, but I feel like I am glaring into a howling thunderstorm. In California we could use the weather, but I worry about my friends elsewhere. You may be aware that the Washington Post just published an infographic …

Israel and the Decline of American Support Under Obama.

The Genocidal 72 Percent.

This is the contemporary Ku Klux Klan. As with the Klan they feel it necessary to wear masks. They are worse than Night Riders because they feel free to carry out their violence in the daytime because they know they have Arab-Palestinian society, as created by Yassir Arafat and the …

Judenrat: Beinart.

UPDATE:    I made a mistake.  The term “Judenrat” is not appropriate.  I should have gone with “Kapo,” instead. ==== Peter Beinart is a Judenrat. This is to say, he acts as an agent and intermediary of the enemies of the Jewish people while claiming to be a friend to the …
