I’d rather talk baseball — Bryce Harper over Rashida Tlaib

Anti-Semitism is not natural to America. Well, it wasn’t, until some people came along, who have no idea what it means to say Jackie Robinson, Hank Greenberg, or Sandy Koufax., 5/19/2019, 12:18 PM

Tliab's whopper

If it’s Monday, it must be Omar, and for Friday, count on Tlaib. This must be planned and cannot be coincidence…when the business is to target the Jewish people bit by bit. , 5/14/2019, 8:58 AM

Another look at Hemingway

Suppose Hamas puts on a show but nobody comes?

Two days of unprovoked rocket fire into Israel did not get them the PR mileage they expected. Usually the media come to their aid, but this time, not so much., 5/8/2019, 12:45 AM

Trump’s homage to Lenny Bruce

Trump is a funny guy, if only they would give him the chance, which they won’t; their loss, and our loss., 5/5/2019, 7:38 AM

The hand that rocked The NY Times

Dream along with me and pretend something else is going on. I’m thinking Purim-style reversal of fortune…we win, the bad guys hang., 5/1/2019, 9:19 AM

The NY Times cartoon is worse than you thought

So much hostility, and so much prejudice, and all of it heaped on the world’s one and only Jewish State. You’d rather not wonder why. , 4/30/2019, 11:30 AM

It begins with censorship

There is a difference – and this is important – there is a difference between freedom to speak and freedom to talk back. Freedom to talk back is strictly policed - and if you think differently than they think you should, your words are terminated., 4/24/2019, 3:30 PM

Jewish NYC councilman Kalman Yeger forgot the Democratic party's new rules about not telling the truth when it is upsetting to Muslims and has been punished., 4/3/2019, 6:03 AM

Too bad about Carl Bernstein

Instead of retiring to the countryside as the grand old man of journalism after Watergate, Bernstein could not resist the allures of trapping and skinning for himself another president, and now goes down as a fool., 3/31/2019, 12:04 PM

Post-Mueller denial syndrome

A clueless generation is in post-Mueller denial. Turn on the news and on any of the channels you will find one of them., 3/27/2019, 7:09 AM

Trump’s vindication ought to chill Bibi’s pursuers

They cooked up a Russia probe to bring down Trump simply because they did not like him. Sound familiar?, 3/25/2019, 11:52 PM

Beto O’Rourke – you are no John F. Kennedy

Of the entire gang of Democrat misfits running for president, not a one has the gravitas to shine John F. Kennedy’s shoes., 3/23/2019, 9:13 PM

“Jews don’t give out candy…”

Aren’t we all repelled by acts of terrorism like the ones in New Zealnd and Israel? Apparently not. They are still giving out candy in Gaza as I write., 3/18/2019, 2:42 PM

How often can we bury Kahane?

The same people who are fine with ANYBODY getting into our Congress here, their Knesset there, are horrified at what they see as the second-coming of Kahane in Israel., 3/8/2019, 8:43 AM

Beware of Sanders/Gantz and the allures of the left

Two-state solution means your sons died for nothing., 2/21/2019, 7:58 AM

Dems have their own country – and it is not America

Tlaib thinks she’s here in our House to represent Ramallah, Omar thinks we brought her over from Somalia to introduce their customs of piracy, intolerance, anti-Semitism and female genital mutilation,, 2/18/2019, 6:00 PM

Ilhan Omar and a moveable feast of intolerance

These Muslim immigrants feel comfortable enough to bring us a taste of Omar’s Somalia, and other such Islamic hell-holes, where calling for the murder of Jews is a typical Friday sermon., 2/15/2019, 12:14 PM

Ilhan Omar: So young…So anti-Semitic

You are not in Somalia anymore, Rep. Omar, you are in the USA., 2/13/2019, 6:30 PM

The media’s silent treatment for slain Israeli teen., 2/12/2019, 9:59 AM

Will some Israeli please explain Benny Gantz to Americans?

For Democrats it seems it’s all about undoing centuries of Judeo/Christian values. Nothing is sacred. Not even life?, 2/4/2019, 10:53 AM

You too, Julie Christie?

Slandering the Jewish people is what we expect from lesser talents who use anti-Semitism to launch a second career. Hello Roger Waters., 2/1/2019, 8:04 AM

The fancy language of boycotting Israel because of this, and because of that, does not fool people, like me, who’ve been around the block a few times. , 1/29/2019, 6:00 PM

Lynch-happy liberals and how they targeted those Catholic kids

I don’t know how to break this to my Israeli readers, those who imagine us high, handsome and invincible – but America is falling apart. , 1/24/2019, 8:12 AM

A blood libel too far

I choose not defend because I refuse to be placed on the defensive when it is they, types like Michelle Alexander, who need to answer for their bullying, their prejudices and their bigotries. Not you. Not me., 1/21/2019, 9:37 PM

Let’s cut the baloney, Mr. President…Please!
