Mar 6, 2011

Leave a Comment

Outgoing Israeli National Security Council chairman Prof. Uzi Arad deserves our appreciation. Principled yet pragmatic, and a true professional expert on foreign, diplomatic and defense policy, he has provided brainpower to Israel’s leaders for almost 40 years.

It’s Iran, not Israel, Stupid

Feb 19, 2011

Leave a Comment

An insidious new mythology is being advanced which replaces the Iranian threat with the “Israeli threat” to Middle East stability.

Leave a Comment

Remembering Rabbi Rackman

Dec 2, 2008

Leave a Comment

Rabbi Emanuel Rackman, the champion of halachic justice, died in December 2008 at age 98. His 70-year-long career in the rabbinate was marked by fearlessness. He stood out, bravely, ahead of the Orthodox mainstream. As Spokesman of Bar-Ilan University, I was privileged to know him well.
