'They Show No Respect for Their Caesars'

Proclaiming yourself a god among pagans was one thing. They could just add Antiochus to a long list. But to do this among Jews, whose religion teaches that no man, regardless of how great, could be Divine, was explosive. , 12/18/2006, 1:45 PM

A Mid-Winter's Dream

A sense of fair play must put the birth of an economically viable Kurdish state - which was indeed promised after WWI, but aborted largely on behalf of British petroleum and Arab interests - ahead of creating yet other states for Arabs at the expenses of both the "Jew of the Nations" and the Kurds., 11/29/2006, 11:57 PM

What's Your Plan B? - Part II
