We know from history that Jew-hatred, the world's oldest and once again most fashionable form of bigotry, is the chameleon of all hates -- forever taking on new hues to suit the scapegoating needs of the day. It has always been thus, and it will always be thus. This is a cancer for which there is sadly no cure.
But as we also know: Am ...Read more
For a week now, the world has watched a high-stakes, emotionally draining, and dangerous game being played out in Gaza. What began as a mediated four-day "truce" and swap of 50 Israeli civilians held hostage by Hamas in exchange for 150 convicted Palestinian-Arab terrorists has now been dragged out much further. Hamas, unusually self-aware for...Read more
I arrived at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor on Thursday, Nov. 16 to deliver a speech on Israel's war with Hamas in Gaza. The talk's blunt title, selected by the local Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chapter, reflected my own unambiguous approach to the conflict: "Israel's Righteous Fight Against Jihadism." Given the nature of the ...Read more
In a now-infamous recent podcast recording on the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza, former President Barack Obama lectured: "You have to admit that nobody's hands are clean, that all of us are complicit to some degree."
Ironically for such a narcissist, Obama is painfully lacking in self-awareness. It is Obama himself who doggedly pursued a grand ...Read more
As Israel continues its systematic assault on Hamas deep inside Gaza, closing in on high-ranking targets and putting the jihadist outfit's sprawling subterranean tunnel network squarely in its crosshairs, the conversation has already begun to shift away from the warfare on the ground. True, much painful fighting likely remains; true as well, ...Read more
Just as the Israel Defense Forces encircle the Hamas stronghold of Gaza City, calls for a "ceasefire" are accelerating.
For the first week or two after the Hamas Holocaust of Oct. 7, which saw the most Jews massacred in a single day since Hitler and hundreds more taken hostage into Gaza, calls for a ceasefire were mostly relegated to far-left...Read more
The weeks since the Oct. 7 Hamas pogrom in Israel, in which the most Jews were slaughtered in a single day than at any time since World War II, have seen an astonishing rise in global Jew-hatred. One might have thought that the mass carnage and unspeakable barbarism of the Hamas Holocaust would instead galvanize a concerted pushback against ...Read more
The Israel Defense Forces' much-anticipated ground invasion of the Hamas-run Gaza Strip has not yet commenced, but the world's attention has already begun to shift away from the single bloodiest and most catastrophic slaughter of the Jewish people since the defeat of Nazi Germany 78 years ago.
The Oct. 7 Hamas pogrom, which featured the ...Read more
I write, of all places, from picturesque Northern Italy. I am here for a wedding where, as the case may be, both bride and groom come from Israeli families. This is thus the second time, following last Saturday evening's celebration of Simchat Torah (a festive annual occasion marking the completion of one cycle of Torah reading and the ...Read more
In early January, as then-future and now-former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) was in the midst of the political fight of his life, this column excoriated him as an "empty suit and a quintessential Swamp creature ... whose main lodestar is cutting deals and expending political capital in order to boost his own political fortunes." ...Read more
Wednesday's second Republican presidential primary debate bore a striking similarity to the first debate one month earlier. Post-debate polls and focus groups indicated Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis won (albeit in less than knockout fashion), former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and smarmy "entrepreneur"...Read more
The United States Senate, once known as the "world's greatest deliberative body," will now permit its members to grace its chamber floor wearing whatever clothes -- no matter how casual or unprofessional -- they happen to fancy on any given day. Following Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer's (D-N.Y.) decision earlier this week to have the ...Read more
Thursday's indictment of presidential prodigal son Hunter Biden on three gun-related criminal counts is the latest twist in the long, winding and rapidly escalating saga that is the Biden crime family.
The indictment, served up by U.S. Attorney -- and now "special counsel," despite the fact 28 Code of Federal Regulations Sec. 600.3 requires ...Read more
