When Justice Isn’t

A letter written by a local elementary school teacher, I’ll call “Mrs. Krieg,” was brought to my attention by a mutual acquaintance.  In light of the notice that honor classes will be discontinued, she thoughtfully agreed that equity (defined as fairness and impartiality) in the schools should benefit all students.  Regrettably, she has been influenced by terminology […]

The Three Monkeys

“Even when one American – who has done nothing wrong – is forced by fear to shut his mind and close his mouth, then all Americans are in peril.”  – Harry Truman Some years ago, when I visited family in Buenos Aires, I was taken to a country club, one that no doubt had been […]

Their Obsession with Death

It was a lovely, warm August afternoon in Jerusalem, 2001, a time when people strolled about, greeted neighbors, enjoyed a beverage or ice cream at an outdoor café, or lunch in the numerous restaurants.  It was a day when an Arab man, carrying a guitar case, entered the crowded Sbarro’s pizzeria, an eatery specifically selected for […]

Ingratitude of the Immigrants

President Trump has been unarguably the most pro-Jewish, pro-Israel President we’ve ever had, surpassing George Washington, John Adams, Abraham Lincoln and Harry Truman.  His stand against Iran (vociferous enemy of Israel), finally moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, cutting funds to the PA and closing the PLO office in Washington, his donations to Jewish causes, […]

More bad news from the home front . . . the betrayal by the National Education Association

We saw  the changes coming.  We heard all the historic revisionism about Israel and the boycott/divestment/sanctions of the only democratic state in the Middle East; the anti-Zionist textbooks and programs that took root in colleges and universities across the country; and the assault upon the vulnerable K-12 students.  We learned that schools were discouraging little […]

“If we don’t speak now”

“Speak now or forever hold your peace” is based upon the marriage liturgy of the Christians’ Book of Common Prayer.  Today it may refer to our self-monitoring for the irrational fear of not being politically correct After reading my essay, “An Assumption of Dignity,” on the Internet, a reader commented, “I circulated it to our […]

A Breached Benediction

Dan Freemyer, minister at Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas, recited a Benediction prayer at the Baylor University commencement on May 18, 2019.  Toward the end, he prayed, “God, give them the moral imagination to reject the old keys that we are trying to give them, the planet that we are poisoning by running it on […]

An Assumption of Dignity

Rashida Tlaib, the Muslim congresswoman who proclaimed that she feels more Palestinian than American in Congress, and wrapped herself in a Palestinian terrorist flag at her victory party on Friday, May 10, proudly declared, “There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust.”  We were deeply offended but not surprised […]

I Take This Woman . . .

The internet provides everything you’d want to know about courtships, weddings, married life, but few of them include the instructions on wife-beating.  There is a brief but enlightening film, produced by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) and posted on Jihad Watch, of a Muslim sociologist who demonstrates the “proper” wife-beating technique.  Of course, the […]

If Our House Be On Fire — The Somali Invasion of North America

The Somalian pirates have once again sailed into North American waters.  But instead of kidnapping coastal dwellers for slavery or taking bounty to enhance their wealth, from the 16th century onward (and again in the 2000s), they are here to continue the process of taking land, America from Americans for Islam and Israel from the Jews for the […]

The Deceiver’s Disciple

Muslims lie not because they are liars by nature but by choice. Systematic lying as a religious policy is deadly, and if our politicians do not understand this, thousands could die. – Don Boys, Ph.D. The mission of the jihadi/jihada (one who engages in holy “war with non-Muslims to establish the religion”) is to bring Islamic law, […]
