Who Are the Luckiest Jews, Blacks and Latinos? for 03/13/2018

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 00:00:00 -0700

At The City College of New York in the late 1930s, my father, an Orthodox Jew, wrote his senior class thesis on anti-Semitism in America. He delineated common realities of the era, such as Jews' admission to law firms, country clubs and colleges being denied or restricted, and various other manifestations of popular and institutional anti-Semitism.

Yet he taught his two sons — my older brother and me — to believe that we, as Americans, were the luckiest Jews in Jewish history.

Why Christians Support Israel for 03/06/2018

Tue, 06 Mar 2018 00:00:00 -0800

In speeches to fellow Jews around America, I often point out that many American Jews are experiencing cognitive dissonance. The institution Jews most admire — the university — turns out to be the most significant source of Israel hatred in America and the rest of the West. At the same time, the people many Jews most distrust — Christians (especially evangelical and other conservative Christians) — turn out to be the Jews' and Israel's best friends.

Given that these two facts are undeniable, how do many American Jews deal with this dissonance? They largely ignore the Israel hatred on campuses, and they dismiss the authenticity of the Christian support. They dismiss it by denying it is genuine. Christians who support Israel, they (and non-Jews on the left) argue, do so for two deceptive reasons.

Why the Left Opposes Arming Teachers for 02/27/2018

Tue, 27 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0800

Why does the left oppose allowing a small number of highly trained teachers and other adults who work at schools to arm themselves?

When asked, their response is consistent: "It's a crazy idea." And "We need fewer guns, not more guns."

A New York Times editorial offered the following argument against having any armed teachers: "Nationwide statistics on police shooting accuracy are not to be found. But if New York is typical, analyses show that its officers hit their targets only one-third of the time. And during gunfights, when the adrenaline is really pumping, that accuracy can drop to as low as 13 percent."

Liberals and Conservatives Are Unhappy for Different Reasons for 02/13/2018

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0800

One of the most important differences between the right and the left — one that greatly helps to explain their differences — is the difference between unhappy liberals and unhappy conservatives.

Unhappy conservatives generally believe they are unhappy because life is inherently difficult and tragic, and because they have made some unwise decisions in life.

In Defense of Evangelicals Who Support Trump for 02/06/2018

Tue, 06 Feb 2018 00:00:00 -0800

It is usually easier for an outsider to defend a person or a group that is attacked than for the person or group.

In that vein, this Jew would like to defend evangelicals and other Christians who support President Donald Trump. They are regularly attacked as religious hypocrites who give Christianity in general, and evangelical Christianity in particular, a bad name.

3 Reasons the Left Wants Evermore Immigrants for 01/30/2018

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 00:00:00 -0800

On one thing we can all agree: The left wants more and more immigrants — including immigrants who enter or are in the country illegally — to come to America and become American citizens.

The question is, why?

Male Sexual Nature: A Primer for the College-Educated for 01/23/2018

Few subjects elicit as much confused, or even nonsensical, commentary as sex.

There are three major reasons for this.

10 Thoughts on the President and the 'S---hole Countries' for 01/16/2018

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 00:00:00 -0800

Here are ten thoughts on the president's alleged use of the word "s—-hole" in describing Haiti, a Central American country and African countries:

1. There are few filters between President Donald Trump's mind and mouth. That is his appeal and his weakness. It is very common that a person's strengths are also weaknesses. I wish Trump's tweets and comments were as forthright — as un-P.C. — as they are now but stated in a sophisticated way. I also wish that cheesecake were not fattening. But just as cheesecake comes with sugar, Donald Trump comes with unsophisticated rhetoric. People are packages, not a la carte menus.

In almost every area of American life, the better things are, the worse it is for the Democratic Party. And vice versa.

Feminization of America Is Bad for the World for 11/14/2017

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0800

Last week, The New York Times published an article, "Sweeping Away Gender-Specific Toys and Labels," that contained three sentences that explain one of the most important phenomena in American life.

In discussing the increasing move to do away with gender-specific toys — something The New York Times approves of — the article quoted Tania Missad, the "director of global consumer insights" at one of the world's largest toy manufacturers, Mattel:

Dogs, Strangers and God for 10/10/2017

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 00:00:00 -0700

A while ago a human-interest story from South Africa was reported internationally. As described in the Wall Street Journal:

"On Aug. 4, Graham and Sheryl Anley, while yachting off the coast of South Africa, hit a reef, capsizing their boat. As the boat threatened to sink and they scrambled to get off, Sheryl's safety line snagged on something, trapping her there. Instead of freeing his wife and getting her to shore, Graham grabbed Rosie, their Jack Russell terrier. (One media account reported that Sheryl had insisted that the dog go first). With Rosie safe and sound, Graham returned for Sheryl. All are doing fine."

The Greatest Libel Since the Blood Libel for 10/03/2017

Tue, 03 Oct 2017 00:00:00 -0700

The most infamous libel in history is the one known as the Blood Libel.

This was the medieval lie leveled at Jews in some European countries that accused the Jews of killing Christian children to use their blood to make Passover matzo.

As the author of a book on the history of anti-Semitism ("Why the Jews? The Reason for Antisemitism"), having taught Jewish history at the college level, and as a committed Jew who has devoted great efforts to combating anti-Semitism, I do not easily compare anything to the Blood Libel.

Who's Divisive -- the President or the Players? for 09/26/2017

Because the left dominates the news media, the entertainment media and academia, Americans are swimming — actually, drowning — in an ocean of lies.

Here are a few examples:

America is racist.

What Will Your Rabbi Talk About This Week? for 09/19/2017

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0700

Tomorrow night is Rosh Hashana, one of the two High HoIy Days of Judaism, or "Days of Awe," as they are called in Hebrew. The other High Holy Day, nine days later, is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

Just as there are many Christians who only go to church on Christmas and Easter, there are many Jews who only go to synagogue on Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur.

Conservatives in America -- Like Marranos in Medieval Spain for 09/05/2017

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0700

For those unfamiliar with the term, Marranos was the name given to Jews in medieval Spain and Portugal who secretly maintained their Judaism while living as Catholics in public, especially in the 15th century during the Spanish Inquisition.

There is, of course, no Spanish Inquisition in America today — no one is being tortured into confessing what they really believe, and no one is being burned at the stake. But there are millions of Marrano-like Americans: Americans who hold conservative views — especially those who hold conservative positions on social issues and those who voted for Donald Trump for president.

Those Who Don't Fight Evil Fight Statues for 08/29/2017

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 00:00:00 -0700

All my life, I have known this rule about people: Those who don't fight the greatest evils will fight lesser evils or make-believe evils.

This happens to be the morally defining characteristic of the left. During the Cold War, many liberals and nearly all conservatives fought communism, but the left fought anti-communism. The left opposed American military buildups and regarded the Cold War between America and the Soviet Union as nothing more than two scorpions in a bottle fighting to the death. They loathed Presidents Nixon and Reagan, not Communist Party Secretary-General Brezhnev.
