From Israel – Live: An American Tragedy

Perhaps I should title this “An UnAmerican Tragedy,” for this is what it really is. Had someone described to me, just months ago, what is going on now in the US, I would have scoffed and said it was unreal, impossible.  But it is possible: we are seeing it unfold …

From Israel: Can America Be Saved??!!

It is no less than a tragedy: We are watching a once great nation unravel. ~~~ But this unraveling didn’t start last week or last month. And it would be altogether too facile to account for this it by focusing solely on what transpired last Wednesday, with the horrendous breaching …

From Israel: “How Do We Not Grieve??”

What causes us to grieve is the horrendous state of affairs in America. Should Biden end up becoming president (something that I absolutely do not consider a “done deal” at this point), there would be no reason to be reassured as to the direction he would take.  The more we …

All Eyes Will Turn to the Jews

Over the past week, two antisemitic incidents caught the attention of Jewish media in the US. Algemeiner reported that in New Jersey, “the carcass of a dead pig was left on the doorstep of a rabbi’s home in the town of Lakewood,” and Tablet Magazine released an intriguing story about …

From Israel: “Lunacy and Other Aberrations!!”

The situation has been rather crazy here in Israel, with a government that doesn’t function like one. I need to look at this shortly.  However, when I consider what’s going on here, my response (which will not surprise regular readers) is that it is “small potatoes” compared to what’s happening …

From Israel: Heaven Help Us!!

The US, first. Then Israel and a good part of the world — not just the West, but also Sunni Arab. What I am referring to are the policies and practices that would emanate from a Biden administration, should he ‒ and this is where we cry “Heaven help us” …

From Israel: The Time for Truth is Past!!

Editor’s note.  Please share this important article. “Justice, justice shall you pursue!” (tzedek, tzedek tirdof) the Torah tells us in the book of Deuteronomy (Devarim) 16:20. But justice is in painfully short supply in the US these days. For anyone who cares about justice, this is cause for immeasurable sadness. …

American Jews and Israel, the Great Divide.

The US election was not only the thermometer to measure the temperature of American politics, it also tested the waters between American and Israeli Jews on what they might consider their best common interest. The result was freezing cold. The American presidential race revealed that the alienation between both communities …

The Taylor Force act.

People are going to say that I am a broken record.  They will say that almost nobody really cares about the Taylor Force Act.  They will argue that it is ridiculous to think that a Biden administration will finance the murder of Jews in Israel, despite “pay-for-slay” or the “Martyrs …

From Israel: The Soul of America!!

Writing after the US election, I believe it’s necessary to look backward in order to understand what is going on now. Many of us – who care deeply about the soul of America – have been watching and grieving over the weakening of the fabric of America for some time …

The Idiocy of the Jews

The American public, along with 71 percent of American Jews, just voted for a presidential ticket that has vowed to fund the Palestinian Authority even as the PA insists that it will finance the “Martyrs Fund” which we call “pay-for-slay.” What this means is that whenever some random Arab in …
