About Those Africans

Most Eritrean illegal infiltrators to Israel are Moslems and there is suspicion that terrorists enter the country among them. And if 50 African countries won't have them, are they also anti-black racists, as Haaretz painted Israel?, 9/10/2012, 10:14 AM

A Just Verdict in the Corrie Case

Corrie entered Gaza to be a human shield for Hamas mass murderers. On March 16, 2003 she decided to play chicken with a large Israeli earth mover. The most lasting image of Corrie was of her face contorted with rage as she burned an American flag., 8/29/2012, 3:04 PM

About Racism

You would be forgiven, if you have been reading the Israeli press, if you were under the impression that Lieberman and his entire party are little better than Russian-born Ku Klux Klansmen., 1/29/2007, 11:40 PM

The Olmert Doctrine

So, let us see if we have this straight. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is outraged that a Russian millionaire paid for the vacations to Eilat for residents of Sderot because such vacations were, in Olmert's "mind," escapism, fleeing from the front, and abandoning their homes in the face of terrorism. , 11/20/2006, 2:01 PM

A Canaanite Patriotism

The Left has been denouncing the proposal for a "loyalty oath" as yet another form of blatant Jewish racism against Arabs.

Leftist Indoctrination at the University of Haifa

The course outline is crawling with postmodernist Newspeak and gibberish, about conflicting "narratives" in the Middle East and about "colonialism". The course outline by Yonay makes little attempt to hide the fact that Zionism will be represented in the course as a form of colonialism and imperialism., 7/11/2006, 11:02 PM

The Political Lessons of Purim

Haman, the villain of Purim, is thought to be descended from Agag, the evil king of the Amalekites, captured by King Saul. The Biblical injunction to "remember what Amalek did to you" is considered particularly timely in proximity to Purim., 3/13/2006, 1:48 PM

The Rise of Hamas and Decline of Israeli Determination

This in fact is the point of the demand for a "safe corridor," which would simply be the first step toward constraining Israeli sovereignty, armed aggression against Israel, and territorial dismemberment. , 2/23/2006, 2:46 PM

Why the Hamas Victory is a Good Thing

This may strike you as bizarre, but I have been arguing that the best thing that could happen in the Palestinian Authority "election" would be a strong Hamas victory. Let me explain., 1/26/2006, 11:04 PM

Same Difference

Got That "Ooo La La, Intifada" Feeling?

Well, there are very few things as amusing these days as watching the French grapple with their backyard <I>intifada</I>. The suburbs of Paris are now more dangerous than Jenin and the French are getting their comeuppance...., 11/6/2005, 6:53 PM

The Politically Incorrect Nobel Laureate

Alas, the academic Left was in for a surprise. Prof. Aumann is not only politically incorrect, he is strongly opposed to the entire Oslo "peace process", he believes Ariel Sharon's Gaza "disengagement" was the height of folly, and - Marx protect us! - he actually believes in God., 10/16/2005, 9:28 PM

The Outing of the Noisy Professor Beinin

Beinin has long turned his classroom into a propaganda bully pulpit from which he bashes Israel and promotes the causes of the jihadniks.

Jihad at Tel Aviv University

You will be interested in learning that Tel Aviv University now offers a course in one-sided, far-leftist Israel-bashing indoctrination, dressed up as a course in psychology. , 9/1/2005, 8:58 PM

Disengagement and Demonization

Ariel Sharon had evidently reached the conclusion that a military victory was needed, and since he was incapable of directing or unable to order a military victory over the Palestinians, he ordered a military victory over the Jewish "settlers"., 8/25/2005, 10:23 PM

Syrian Fascism Strikes Again

A few days before his disappearance, the Canadian <I>Globe and Mail</I> correspondent Paul Koring interviewed Mr. Alkhaznawi in Damascus for a story about Syria's newly emboldened political dissidents.

Phantoms of the Oprah

Yes, Oprah, the waddling guru of the bored middle-class at-home housewives, has repeatedly taken time off from teaching her followers about closet organization and thigh reduction, in order to promote the Palestinian cause.

Former Israeli Leads Anti-Semites in Europe

The Arabs, declares Eyal Sivan, were in the right when they attacked Israel in 1948, because the Arabs were seeking a nice Rwanda-style bi-national state with an Arab majority in which the Jews would be treated almost as well as are the southern Sudanese Christians and animists today. , 6/5/2005, 12:58 PM

The Second City's Twin Academic Neonazis

Northwestern evidently did not know about Butz's psychotic Nazi agenda when it hired him, but DePaul knew exactly what it was getting when it hired Finkelstein. Finkelstein had earlier been fired from two adjunct jobs in New York due to his lack of any scholarly credentials..., 6/1/2005, 9:28 AM
