Rahm Emanuel, Chuy Garcia, an ironworker and a teacher go into a bar.....
I did a small piece on the upcoming runoff between incumbent Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his challenger, Jesus “Chuy” Garcia.  You can read it here, if you’re so inclined. The object of that piece was to summarize the February 24, 2015 mayoral election with a nod to Chuy, saying that Mayor Emanuel may have... Read more »

Chris Matthews takes Netanyahu to task on the two-state solution

Chris Matthews takes Netanyahu to task on the two-state solution
On his show, Hardball, Chris Matthews questioned Israeli Prime Minister Bejamin Netanyahu’s motives for appearing before a joint session of the U.S. Congress.  He never questioned the motives of Speaker of the House, John Boehner, who invited Bibi to appear. Boehner’s singular motivation allows little room for speculation. That speech is old news now and... Read more »

Netanyahu and Obama both scored some points yesterday

Netanyahu and Obama both scored some points yesterday
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (hereinafter referred to as “Bibi”) and President Obama (hereinafter referred to as “The Prez”) each got to chalk one up in the “win” column yesterday.  Both victories are a little bit national security, a little bit political one-upmanship.

You can almost hear a Saudi prince telling his buddies... Read more »

Hindered by political correctness, we talk about the plight of the Palestinians and legitimize their claims of victimization even as they plot genocide and the... Read more »

A Day to Remember the Holocaust and Resistance

Today is Yom HaShoah V’HaGevurah, which is Hebrew for “A Day to Remember the Holocaust and Resistance”.  If you think it doesn’t sound that great in either language, you’re not alone. It’s both ironic and paradoxical that it was Hitler’s drive to rid Germany and Europe of all Jews that pushed them to fight for... Read more »

Jews start 5774 locked in a region of turmoil

Jews around the world celebrated the beginning of the year 5774 today and asked forgiveness for the sins they have committed against their fellow man. Such is the religion. Israel begins the year as she has begun every year since her birth in 1948, surrounded by neighbors who outnumber her 100 to 1 and support... Read more »

Israel, Gaza, the Missiles of Hamas and my young friend, Phillip

Israel’s retaliation for relentless missile strikes from Gaza once again remind us that the most dangerous thing in the Middle East is a tiny nation of Jews trying only to survive. Surrounded by hostile Arab states and outnumbered 100 to 1, Israel has created an oasis of life in a desert wasteland. From an area... Read more »
