Why Americans Don’t Care About ISIS

isisLately, conservative pundits like Glenn Beck and Hugh Hewitt have been questioning why America seems so apathetic about ISIS. Beck says Americans don’t realize how serious Islamic terrorism has become; we are on the verge of World War III. ISIS has expanded under Obama, even though, as […]

Interventionists Need a Lesson in American Government

In the wake of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress, an e-mail arrived in my inbox declaring “A Quarter of Congressional Democrats Choose to Betray Israel.” Obviously this was intended to get me to click on the linked article, which it succeeded in doing. It was also clearly supposed to outrage me, which […]

Has Rand Paul Squandered His Chance to Lead the Non-Intervention Cause?

The letter to Iran masterminded by uber-hawk Sen. Tom Cotton and signed by 47 Republican Senators, including most surprisingly Rand Paul, has caused quite a stir.

Barack Obama and Binyamin Netanyahu at the White House in 2010I once met a woman who was born and raised in Iran and lived under the Shah, and later, under Ayatollah Khomeini. I remember how she spoke passionately, in her broken English, about just how terrible the […]

70 Years Later … Will We Let History Be Repeated?

auschwtzanvrsry

This week marked the 70th anniversary of the allied liberation of the infamous Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz. We like to think that society has moved on; that the Holocaust was an atrocity of the past, one that could never be repeated in today’s society. Unfortunately, those […]

Islam shows “itself to be in all points unoriginal and Decadent” – Albert Schweitzer

In his excellent book Civilization and Ethics, a penetrating analysis of the various religions and philosophies of the world, Schweitzer says this: “In contrast to these monistic-pantheistic world-views, we find a dualistic outlook on life in the religion of Zarathustra (sixth century B.C. onwards), in that of the Jewish prophets (from the eighth century B.C.

Why Islam must be Subjected to Scrutiny and Criticism – A Response to Mehdi Hasan of the Huffington Post UK

Given the volume of condemnation following the massacres in Paris I had decided against making any comment other than short condolences on Twitter and Facebook in which I quoted Winston Churchill: “This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be […]

HarperCollins and the Ultimate Map of Israel Insult

The Defective Harper Collins Atlas and the Missing State of Israel

hrprclnsAs recently as 1989, The General Assembly (State Legislature) of Pennsylvania passed House Resolution No. 189 declaring a “Geography Awareness Week” in the State. It would have been more fitting for the U.S. Congress to pass it but the results would probably have been equally fruitless. Unless […]

Conservative Think Tank Fouls With Innuendo That The Gold Standard Played A Role In the Rise Of Hitler And The Nazis

Standing by Our Allies - and What Happens When we Don't

Most of us agree we should stand by our friends, and that we should keep our promises. However, the U.S. has a decidedly mixed record in doing this. I will look at that record, but the reason to really think about it are recent […]

Nine Remarkable Similarities between America and Israel; and One Critical Difference

America-IsraelFlags

At first glance, the title of this essay seems a bit absurd. An assertion that the United States and Israel are alike is rather easy to refute. They are countries of vastly different size, geography and climate. Their languages are unrelated. One was founded as […]

H.A.M.A.S. (Hides Amongst Mosques And Schools), Self-Loathing Jews, And The Only Hope For Peace

Hms1 In 2005 Gaza was unconditionally given to the Palestinians. They quickly handed it over to Hamas, made it a terror fortress, and smuggled in all the weapons of war that they could (which brought about a blockade). All efforts of peace since then have been met […]

Why the Left Hates Israel

Sometimes one is left wondering exactly why the political left hates Israel so much. After all, a large number of people who founded the state were on the left, themselves. That is why the Kibbutz settlements were so popular. People voluntarily organized into collectivist communities in some of which private property was not recognized. Additionally, […]

Roots of the Israel-Gaza Conflict

With the ongoing conflict between Israel and Gaza I decided to re-publish this Open Letter which I wrote during one of the previous Israel/Gaza conflicts. Nothing much changes, it seems. But hopefully this time Israel will deal with the terror-mongers once and for all.

But it seems that John Kerry has either bought into the […]
