NEVER STOP FIGHTING JEW-HATRED

2024-06-14T09:26:02-05:00June 15, 2024|

How could so much rabid and vulgar Jew-hatred suddenly erupt everywhere?

To block streets, schools and bridges? To smash windows, deface synagogues and kosher [...]

THE SLAUGHTER AND THE SPRING

2024-06-03T15:55:39-05:00June 3, 2024|

None of us slept on the way over from Paris. And not just because of the menacing rumblings of the wabbly propeller (actually, not bad for 1962) that could keep awake the deaf, let alone a bunch of Jewish immigrants praying they would be spared forty years in [...]

THE CAMPUS INTIFADAS ARE NOT ANTI-WAR PROTESTS

2024-05-07T13:12:40-05:00May 7, 2024|

NEW DEAL NOSTALGIA

2024-03-31T16:06:28-05:00March 31, 2024|

There is a new longing for the New Deal. And it is not a good sign.  Of course, the invocation of the New Deal and its presumed architect, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, has been a constant on the left since Roosevelt’s reign ended with his death on April [...]

ANTISEMITISM IS NOT FOR JEWS ONLY

2024-02-24T18:52:53-05:00February 25, 2024|

“Antisemitism” as Ideology “To Combat Antisemitism, Understand Its Variety,” urges Gary Saul Morson on the pages of the Wall Street Journal in a January 17, 2024 article. The Dostoyevsky scholar fully appreciates that words are weapons, and “antisemitism,” whose ubiquity far exceeds its clarity, is among the deadliest. [...]

A MARRIAGE MADE IN HELL: THE RED-GREEN ALLIANCE AT WAR WITH THE WEST

On Saturday, January 13, marking almost 100 days after the Muslim terror group Hamas’ savage massacre in Israel last October 7, thousands of left-wing, pro-Palestinian demonstrators rallied at the White House. They were united there to condemn President Joe Biden for his administration’s defense of Israel and to [...]

To Win the Gaza Peace, Destroy Hamas and Keep Out UNRWA and the PA

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 [...]

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.

This is not to say that cultural anthropology [...]
