There ain’t nothing like a Dane singing `Shir Hama’alot’

Friday, May 30th, 2003

“You could sit in synagogue, close your eyes and know – just from the tune – what day of the year it was,” says Pinchas Melchior, recalling his youth in Copenhagen. The rich musical heritage of Danish Jewry is reflected in the vast array of melodies used in the Great Synagogue of Copenhagen, says Melchior, […]

HAGUE PROFESSOR: THIS IS NO “OCCUPATION”

Friday, May 30th, 2003

Prof. Talia Einhorn, of the T.M.C. Asser Institute, an institute for international law in The Hague, writes that the Israeli presence in Yesha does not constitute “occupation,” and moreover, that the U.N.

Yom Yerushalayim – Day of Jerusalem (28 Iyar)

Thursday, May 29th, 2003

TERRORISM PAYS

Thursday, May 29th, 2003

In accepting for the first time a timetable for the creation of an independent Palestinian state, the Israeli cabinet may have sealed the fate of modern Israel. If Israel dismantles so-called “settlements” while Yasser Arafat and his crony, Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, add to their long list of broken promises the promise to end terrorism, […]

Wednesday, May 28th, 2003

What Jonathan Pollard and Alfred Dreyfus have in common is that both were falsely accused of treason. Jonathan was never accused, indicted or convicted of treason, but that has not stopped the U.S. Government’s deliberate mischaracterization of Jonathan and the offense he committed. Nor was he indicted for spying AGAINST the United States, only for […]

Not Harmless Posturing

Wednesday, May 28th, 2003

For the past decade, Israel has been fundamentally anti-democratic in one crucial sense. Every single government except for that of Ehud Barak was headed by people who ran on one political platform and then did the exact opposite. Only Barak did what he stated he would do. Yitzhak Rabin ran on a strict No-Deal-With-the-PLO platform, […]
