When Israel banned Jew-haters Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib

Every country with even a rudimentary level of self-respect bars from her borders those non-citizens who publicly despise her and further seek to destroy her. America does. Britain does., 8/19/2019, 6:50 AM

Where fools rush in: Predicting the Israeli elections

There was an expensive pre-election in April. Hard numbers resulted. Not theories. Not polls. Not surveys. Not predictions. Not guesses. Hard numbers., 8/12/2019, 10:34 AM

Urgently needed: A broad United Right

To this day, Israel and Jews throughout the world pay the terrible price for the Oslo Disaster that never would have happened if the Israeli Right had not splintered, wasting and losing the thousands of votes that had comprised an electoral majority., 8/1/2019, 8:09 AM

On homosexuality, bisexuality, and speaking Judaic truth in a PC cloud

In Orthodox Judaism, homosexuality is not a matter of pride. Certainly, it must never be a basis for social or employment discrimination, never for mockery. As with heterosexuality, it is a matter for privacy, no one else’s business., 7/25/2019, 10:08 PM

Throw her out / Throw them out

The four Congressional vipers now known as “The Squad” came to Washington this January, swinging.  Two of them came swinging at Jews right away. , 7/19/2019, 3:01 PM

The 6.4 California earthquake that should have been getting covered

Decades of Illegal Immigration changed California,perhaps irrevocably. For once and for all, let’s stop calling them “Illegals.” They are not “Illegals.” Let’s start calling them what they really are:  Imported Voters. , 7/5/2019, 6:09 PM

Why Orthodoxy needs both -- OU congregations and Young Israel shuls

“Open Orthodox” rabbis use the New York Times and Washington Post to air their grievances against mainstream normative Orthodoxy. , 7/3/2019, 1:34 AM

Actually, Bernie Sanders Is a Communist with a severe Jewish Problem

“Communist,” a term that has been abused and misapplied, often in terrible ways, should be employed but gingerly. Nevertheless, the time has come., 6/26/2019, 12:59 PM

The deconstruction and breakdown of US education: AOC as a product

AOC is so very much like so many tens of thousands of young Americans who now receive an education that costs families $40,000-$60,000 per year and yet fails to teach how to think instead of spouting the false narratives they are taught., 6/20/2019, 8:55 AM

500 million shekels to right a terrible wrong and secure Israel

The terrible, avoidable tragic mistake for Israel’s religious Zionist camp is that 256,629 votes were lost to the community in April.  Six Percent. More than six seats.  And that happened on the eve of the ever-looming Trump “Deal of the Century., 6/2/2019, 5:42 PM

New elections would be great

My hope is based on a simple strategy that requires only sanity among the religious-nationalist community of Israel. I know that is asking a whole bunch. But here goes. , 5/28/2019, 7:57 AM

On Jewish destiny and the calming extension of Jewish Sovereignty

Despite the terrible errors of Israel’s leaders, Jewish destiny continually has thwarted each and every effort to cede any part of Judea and Samaria., 5/17/2019, 5:03 PM

Der New York Stürmer

New York Times Jew-hatred has now been translated into pictures for those neo-Nazis of the Left and Right who have difficulty keeping up with words that are spelled with letters., 4/29/2019, 12:30 PM

Few surprises in Israel election results

Uncannily like America’s 2016 election night, those who believed Leftist polls and the Left media reports are in shock., 4/10/2019, 7:22 AM

As Israel goes to the polls on Tuesday

The crazy three-month campaign and what to expect., 4/8/2019, 6:47 AM

America recognizes Israeli Sovereignty over the Golan Heights

Obama had two final missions remaining to complete after the Democrats had lost the White House to Donald Trump: One was stabbing Israel in the back one last time., 3/29/2019, 2:02 PM

Understanding the Book of Esther without getting into a whole Megillah

The key in the Orthodox Jewish understanding of the book is that Mordechai wanted to circulate it throughout the empire, but he knew it had to get past the King and his censors. , 3/20/2019, 2:40 PM

The Democrats' 'anti-hate' resolution is the ultimate insult

A vicious newcomer to Congress, spreading one Goebbels-like Nazi trope after another finally was to be censured.  And then the Democrat Jews got their awakening., 3/8/2019, 8:21 AM

To topple a country over cigars, champagne and media coverage

It is ridiculous to pack the streets with protests and to self-flagellate over “ethical standards” that do not exist in any real world because those standards are not real. They are ridiculous., 3/4/2019, 10:10 AM

The Left's hypocritical virtue-signaling over the Otzma Yehudit deal

What was on the table: Either Jewish Home and Otzma merge for the election, assuring a continuing religious-right Government, or they run alone, handing the Government to the Left even though the Left will have fewer votes and reflect the minority. , 2/27/2019, 5:34 PM

Democrat Identity Politics allow Jew-Haters to seep through the cracks

Long after it had seemed that the Democrats finally had forgiven the Republicans for taking away their slaves, the new era of Democrat Hate has come., 2/17/2019, 12:59 PM

Abortion, killing, murder, tearing limbs, and personal responsibility

The word “abortion” is very sterile and gentle. It is a term like a “procedure.”  What does an abortion actually entail? , 2/10/2019, 11:48 AM

Understanding the roots of Tamika Mallory's obsessive Jew-Hatred

Why the Women's March co-head hates Jews while adoring Farrakhan, Sharpton, and Sarsour., 12/23/2018, 11:15 PM

Praise to the Chief Rabbinate for non-recognition of sham 'Conversion'

 In praise of the Chief Rabbinate's refusing to recognize wrongful “Conversions” by renegade rabbis., 11/30/2018, 1:06 PM

When media lie to sow social discord, they are the enemy of the people

The Pittsburgh terrorist attack, Trump's response, and the way the Left Media then hit him viciously anyway may be the “Rosetta Stone” historians will use to decipher that Trump was right to call the Fake News Left Media the “enemy of the people.”, 11/7/2018, 7:27 AM

Four revived whine vintages from the Democrats' Whineries

The Electoral College, Stacking the Court, Impeaching Kavanugh, and 'Negroes Who Don't Read.', 10/25/2018, 11:51 PM

Now that Kavanaugh is confirmed, what next?

Liars become exposed over time.  Few learn history. , 10/8/2018, 10:27 PM

The Ford-Kavanaugh hearings played maximally well for the Republicans

Looking back on the day’s riveting events, it is amazing how effectively the Republicans and Judge Kavanaugh sidestepped the perils and emerged perhaps even stronger than the morning augured. , 9/28/2018, 5:56 AM

Democrats and Kavanaugh, Spartacus and Crucifixion

The connection between Spartacus and Crucifixion, Democrats and Kavanaugh, and Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur., 9/19/2018, 10:24 PM

Nu — So Israel Is not the Jewish State?

If Israel is not specifically a Jewish country, then leave the Jews outside Israel alone. Close down the Jewish Agency, and keep Sharansky and Herzog at home., 8/8/2018, 8:16 AM

Let them walk out of Birthright and say Kaddish for Arab terrorists

These possibly-halakhically Jewish naifs have been taught nothing about Judaism or Zionism and they actually cannot tell the difference between the aspiring murderers and the intended victims., 7/25/2018, 10:30 AM

Everyone is smart except Trump when it comes to Putin negotiations

That brilliance explains why they are all billionaires who were elected president., 7/19/2018, 12:22 PM

Another top-notch Supreme Court nomination

The perfect choice for the season of resistance., 7/11/2018, 8:45 PM

Your mother, Hitler and closet conservatives

The Left now is taking into mainstream everyday society the totalitarianism, public shaming, and repression that it has been imposing on your kids in college these past ten years since the Age of Obama dawned., 6/27/2018, 4:30 PM

Leaving the UNHRC so that they can now torture and butcher one another

UN Human Wrongs Council would be a more appropriate name for this group, so riddled with human rights abusers. , 6/22/2018, 7:19 AM

Firing insubordinate subordinate Comey is not obstruction of justice

Comey, like Trump's other critics, thinks he is an idiot. It is amazing watching their constant attacks on him.  They never got elected President.  They never even got elected as dog catcher.  How many denuclearizations have CNN anchors negotiated?, 6/18/2018, 8:20 AM

The month in which Tefillin held the spotlight

Do universities hire math professors who can't add? The professor of multi-culturalism who could not stand to see tefillin seems to be comparable., 6/5/2018, 11:59 PM

The never-ending saga of unrecognized American conversions

Why blame the Israeli Rabbinate for not recognizing American “Conversions” that American Orthodox Rabbis also do not recognize?, 6/1/2018, 3:35 PM

What exactly happened at Israel's Gaza border?

Stop. Think. That automatically puts you ahead of Western media. What exactly is going on at Israel's Gaza border?, 5/18/2018, 5:25 PM

American Open Orthodoxy reveals its alien religious moorings - again

Separating politics from the core conversion issue

Getting to the heart of the conversion matter., 3/7/2018, 5:28 PM

Surviving a foolish Dvar Torah

Cheering Vashti and pitying Esther? A foolish misreading of the Megillah story by a woman rabbi in an Open Orthodox congregation tries to make it into a feminist narrative., 3/1/2018, 11:41 PM

Needed: Full disclosure before conversion

Rabbis who perform conversions owe their clients full disclosure. Has anyone ever sold you something — a service, a product, a promise — only for you to learn later that you paid for something that was not what you thought? , 2/25/2018, 7:34 AM

What a fabulous time to shake up Israel’s government!

Bibi should get a T-shirt that says: “Ehud Barak did favors for Marc Rich / Obama got a $300,000 discount on a house / His wife got a $300,000 “Job” / And all I got were some crummy cigars and champagne.” , 2/19/2018, 12:22 PM

What does McDonald's put in its cheeseburgers?

I have been trying for years to figure out what explains George Soros, Bernie Sanders, Chuck Schumer and all the other Jews who are willing to sell out the Jewish people., 2/15/2018, 10:39 PM

The Orthodox Union isolates the final four

The four extreme-left organizations in the OU fold are the end of a trend that once did not have to be discussed, because it was not imaginable. , 2/7/2018, 7:10 AM

It's OK to deport

Under the oh-so-liberal Obama and the Democrats, more than 3,000,000 infiltrators were deported.  Yes, more than three million!, 2/5/2018, 6:49 AM

The "shul" I won't attend

Why not? Because I may not. The Orthodox Union name on food is a guarantee that it is kosher. Not so with synagogues. , 1/23/2018, 6:26 AM

Trump's doctor and the impatients

Navy Rear Admiral Jackson enters the media mud pit to announce that Pres. Trump is healthy., 1/19/2018, 2:31 PM

40 years of Democrats defaming the IQ of Republican presidents

Ford, Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and now Donald Trump are all briliant men painted as stupid by the media. And it is impossible to counter that canard elegantly., 1/9/2018, 7:25 AM

The MIddle East 'Peace Process' meme: What peace process?

'It will threaten the peace process." For the last fifty years, someone in a European capital and in the U.S. State Department has uttered that sentence at least once weekly., 12/11/2017, 7:40 AM

Make sure those you love know how much they mean to you

Remembering dear Rav Mordechai Scher z"l., 12/5/2017, 6:44 AM

Tzipi Hotovely has finally been discovered

With her celebrity in the US because of the Princeton Hillel boycott, comes a new price to pay — dealing with the hatchets swung by the “Gotcha!” crowd. They hate her because, without a fight, she defeated the rabid leftist rabbis of Hillel., 11/27/2017, 2:48 PM

The pain of the contemporary Orthodox Jew

The groundbreaking Pew survey of American Jews found four years ago that, in a few short decades, Orthodox Jews will comprise the majority of Jews in New York. But media reports typically ignore them, painting almost all Jews as liberal., 9/10/2017, 11:57 AM

Pres. Trump, in his classically inartful way, was absolutely right

When the President of the United States rightly excoriated law-breakers and thugs on all sides of a street conflagration, he came in for a torrent of media abuse, forcing even level-headed bystanders to take cover., 8/19/2017, 11:53 PM

Expanding Qalqilya is a lame-brained idea that can cost lives

If politicans within the Government of Israel think they will win world acclaim and applause in Israel or abroad by doubling or tripling the terrorist stronghold of Qalqiliya, they are amazingly naïve. Don't just freeze the plan, kill it., 7/13/2017, 10:46 AM

The Reform Movement came late to the party

They will learn to live with it, just as we Modern Orthodox/ srugim (of the knitted kippot) live with and still passionately love Israel even after Gush Katif and even though many of us wish the Chief Rabbinate sometimes were more oriented towards us, 6/28/2017, 1:07 PM
