HERBERT ZWEIBON: A HISTORY LESSON FOR FRIENDS

     It is axiomatic that America and Israel are each other’s most valuable and dependable ally, with shared national defense and security concerns.  It is encouraging that the midterm elections will bring a crop of national security conservatives to Washington, who, with minor exceptions, have stated warm support for Israel.

FROM THE EDITOR: RAEL JEAN ISAAC

From the Editor  A Band of Brothers               “Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.” So wrote Voltaire, words strikingly applicable to the nutty vilification of Israel rampant in Europe. Fortunately there are a few sane voices, even among elites, some of them now joined in the Friends of Israel […]

IT’S THE JIHAD, STUPID! RUTH KING

              Israel’s “settlers” are often described as “Jewish, ultra-orthodox, right wing, messianic, fanatics.”  Contrast this with the description of Israel’s Arab antagonists.
