From Israel: Facing Bitter Truth Squarely!!

Along with many of you, I have been watching the unfolding of the situation in Afghanistan with a sense of pain and horror: The shocking, alarming failure of the Biden administration: The abandonment of American citizens and Afghan allies, the emerging terror. But we must not fashion this as an …

American Jews are signalling their own dire straits

American Jews are decoupling, not only from their brethren and the idea of a coherent Jewish people, but also from reality itself Anyone looking for conclusive evidence that the American Jewish community is in a dangerous tailspin might just have found his smoking gun. A recently released survey by the …

From Israel: The Inmates Are Running the Asylum!!

A harsh indictment of America, I realize, but one much deserved. I have watched, aghast and pained, as US citizens have caved in large numbers to what is essentially a Marxist ideology designed to take America down. ~~~ Recently I watched an excellent Webinar by Americans for Peace and Tolerance, …

From Israel: Clueless and Sinking!!

In his book, “Blink,” pages 107 -108, Malcolm Gladwell discusses the modern approach to warfare.

From Israel: “A Cause for Celebration!!”

At last, within the American political scene, at least one reason for gladness: The Senate has acquitted President Trump of the charges of “incitement of insurrection” leveled in his second impeachment trial.  Not only has a patriotic American who was not remotely guilty of these ludicrous charges been absolved, further …

Why the Jews? Answer: number 1,800,018

Why the Jews? Because we are a stiff-necked people. Heinrich Heine wrote: “The Jewish people are a nation that has defied the centuries – a great eternal holy people, the people of God, which serves as the model for all humanity.” Jews have two choices, today, and only two. Will …

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 …
