The Washington Post By David Bernstein December 6, 2015 First part: President Obama: “Tonight, Jews in America, Israel, and around the world come together to light the first candle of the Festival of Lights.

Posted on April 30, 2015 by JNS.org (JNS.org) The Indiana General Assembly has become the second-ever state legislature to pass a bill that formally opposes the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

Rep. André Carson’s judgment is questionable

  In his Jan. 17 column, Matthew Tully misleadingly portrays concerns over the recent appointment of Rep. André Carson to the House Intelligence Committee as being motivated by an anti-Muslim bias. In fact, the concerns are directly related to Carson’s behavior and questions about his judgment and intentions. In June 2014, Carson was invited to be the keynote speaker at the newly established U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, the...

Poor Policy Choices Leave Jewish State Vulnerable

Published: February 12, 2013 3:00 a.m. in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. As President Obama begins his second term, it is an opportune moment to critically evaluate his foreign policy record, which thus far appears to be based on the concept that peace and strength can be gained through abandoning one’s friends and appeasing one’s enemies.

We Gave Peace a Chance

Article printed from Daniel Gordis – Dispatches from an Anxious State: URL to article:   “What was the hardest thing about making aliya?” people still ask me. They expect, I imagine, that I’ll say something about our kids going to the army. Or about living in less than half the space we had when we lived in the States. Or, if they knew, they might imagine that I’d mention having one car for four drivers, rather than two cars for two drivers...

From Al-Masara to the Wall Street Journal: A Case Report of Palestinian Fauxtography

By Allon Friedman The American Thinker December 10, 2012 Like all supporters of Israel, I am acutely aware of the mainstream media’s all-pervading anti-Israel bias.  I learned long ago that news reports which fairly present Israel’s version of the conflict are as rare as July snowflakes in Houston.  A recent experience of mine only reinforced these beliefs. While leisurely perusing a recent edition of the Wall Street Journal, I came across an...

Vague Reporting Fails to Draw Clear Picture

A letter by JAACI’s Vice President to the Indy Star Letters to the Editor   In describing the latest violence between Israel and Gaza, The Star’s tendency is to report facts that are devoid of context. Since news without context is worthless, it is hard to avoid concluding that The Star would rather push the vague and morally equivalent notion of a “cycle of violence” than accurately report that the violence and suffering are entirely the...

Challenging the Leftist Domination of the Jewish Community

April 10, 2011 American Thinker Change is in the air. From the toppling of Middle East potentates to the Tea Party’s dramatic rise to the recent historic public employee union legislation enacted across the Midwest, things suddenly seem to be turned on their heads. And from the unlikely location of central Indiana a new model has arisen for Jews whose unequivocal support for Israel and America has hitherto been marginalized. Background In...
