2023-11-20T11:15:35-05:00November 19, 2023|

In the Hamas-built hellscapes of Gaza, there is little doubt that Israel will ultimately win the shooting war. But a harder question is, can Israel also win the peace? That is, can Israel not only defeat Hamas, but also permanently end the recurrence of Gazan terror? The answer [...]

STARING INTO THE ABYSS

2023-11-03T05:30:42-05:00November 5, 2023|

The absurdist play The Arsonists, written by Swiss novelist and playwright Max Frisch and staged in 1958, opens with the middle-class protagonist, a businessman named Biedermann, commenting in exasperation on a wave of arson attacks in the community.

NURTURE, NOT NATURE: WOKEISM AND THE ANTHROPOLOGICAL ORIGINS OF GENDER BENDING

2023-09-26T11:59:15-05:00October 2, 2023|

American cultural anthropology has a lot to answer for. Its icons—people like Franz Boas, Margaret Mead, Ruth Benedict, and Edward Sapir—were the indispensable precursors of the woke ideology now so deeply entrenched in our schools and universities, courts, politics, and business.

OUR ETERNAL BATTLE FOR ZION

2023-07-26T12:50:25-05:00July 26, 2023|

I’m a Jew, a feminist, an author, and an academic. I believe in universal human rights. I am not a multi-cultural relativist. I do not respect the postcolonial academy, which brought about the palestinianization of intellectual reality, and which projected Islam’s apartheid practices onto Israel. I oppose the [...]

PALESTINIAN ANNIHILATIONIST IDEOLOGY IS THE TRUE OBSTACLE TO PEACE

2023-06-23T10:35:22-05:00June 29, 2023|

DISINFORMATION DYSTOPIA IN AMERICA

2023-03-28T16:12:05-05:00March 29, 2023|

In the wake of the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank, and with authorities rushing to intervene and calm financial markets, a perhaps unexpected subplot emerged. On a Zoom call consisting of congressmen, their staffers, and officials representing the Federal Reserve, Treasury, and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation on the [...]
