Another American has fallen victim to terrorism in the Middle East, but this time the United States is being careful not to overreact.

Why do Islamic radicals want to kill innocent Americans? I’m not certain that I know, but I have a novel idea. Let’s listen to what they say. For example, Ramzi Ahmed Yousef is the guy who helped organize the first terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. Yousef was sentenced …

Everyone with a heart in his breast sympathizes with the Palestinian people in their struggle against Israeli power, influence and brutality.

January 27, 2001 The touching words of Elie Wiesel (Jerusalem in My Heart, NYT 1/25/2001) painted a beautiful portrait of the Jewish people, yearning for Jerusalem, loving and praying for it over the centuries and cherishing its name from generation to generation. This potent image reminded me, an Israeli writer …

The murderous treatment of European Jews during the Second World War has become almost legendary in its depiction as a unique and singularly important example of bigoted inhumanity, carried to barbarous extremes. No other experience from among the overwhelming number of historic cases of mass brutality has ever achieved such …

One isn't supposed to say this, but many people believe that Israel now holds the White House, the Senate, and much of the American media in its hands. This is what is known as an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory. The odd thing is that it is held by many Israelis. In …

In 2005, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made an astute observation about the Holocaust that was heard around the world: “The West had given more significance to the myth of the genocide of the Jews, even more than God, religion, and the prophets.” He further suggested that if the West had …
