Weekly News & Views

Yom Kippur

  • For a Better Year
    Jerusalem Post Editorial - September 24, 2004  As Jews around the world go tonight to pray Kol Nidre, the most famous of prayers unique to Judaism's holiest day, they and their leaders will have plenty of hastily-made vows to reconsider, which is what that ancient prayer is about.

  • Days of atonement and renewal
    By Suzanne Fields - - September 23, 2004  The sun was sinking into the Mediterranean on the eve of Yom Kippur 31 years ago this week, and 3 million Jews were preparing their devotions as the climax of the final days of the dying year. Unbeknownst to nearly all of them, a hundred thousand Egyptian soldiers, behind 1,350 tanks and supported by 2,000 pieces of artillery, were moving stealthily across the west bank of the Suez Canal, marching in an order of battle that was meant to thwart the millions of Israeli prayers.

  • Yom Kippur: The fast track to love and forgiveness
    By Rabbi David Aaron - - September 24, 2004  Yom Kippur is all about love and forgiveness. It's about how we are always inseparably one with G-d. On Yom Kippur we get a glimpse of ourselves, our choices and our relationship to G-d from another perspective — G-d's perspective. This is the transformational power that makes it into a Day of Atonement and forgiveness.

  • The suicide bomber was hostess of a children's TV show
    By David Frankfurter - - September 24, 2004  Chosen by the Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades for her youthful innocence, the young girl was dressed in traditional Muslim garb, in order to play on the sensitivities of any soldiers she may encounter. They know that Israelis are reticent to stop and search women -- especially religious women who are shrouded in apparent modesty.

  • Israel's unexpected victory over terrorism
    By Yossi Klein Halevi & Michael B. Oren - Jewish World Review - September 20, 2004  Israel's triumph over the Palestinian attempt to unravel its society is the result of a systematic assault on terrorism that emerged only fitfully over the past four years. The fence, initially opposed by the army and the government, has thwarted terrorist infiltration in those areas where it has been completed.

  • "Humiliating" her saved maybe twenty lives: Questions for President Bush
    By Reuven Koret - - September 23, 2004  When a woman walks by fully covered in the garb of traditional religion, there is a natural tendency to respect their modesty and privacy. The "disrespect" of two heroic border policeman, their "humiliation" of this ticking bomb, saved the lives of at least a dozen people.

The Conflict

  • In the Soul of a Jew
    by Mike Levine - - September 22, 2004  I receive mail from many people around the world. A letter from a gentleman in Australia accuses Israeli Jews of using "heavy handed tactics" against the Palestinians, and of "oppressing" them. He uses the standard, oft-repeated claims of "occupation" and "usurping land". He accuses Jews of automatically calling anyone who criticizes Israel an anti-Semite. What follows is part of my letter to him.

  • Arafat’s Mouthpiece
    By Joel Mowbray - - September 22, 2004  The man sitting across from me was a consummate PR flack: smooth, eloquent, charming, passionate. He also happened to be the spokesman for the world's most experienced terrorist, Yasser Arafat.

  • Peace at Last
    by Steven Plaut - - September 20, 2004  It was in the year 2008. The Israelis at long last gave up their attempts to resist the pressures of the world. They elected a new government headed by Prime Minister Yossi Beilin, the original promoter of the Oslo Peace Process, in coalition with the Jewish and Arab parties of the Left.
