Not long afterwards, a...

The Drunken Truth

By Nidal Sakr*

Once upon a time, a man sat helpless, watching the news, reading papers, tuning his car radio to what was going on in his world.

The Israel Lobby

By John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt

Rohan is coming, and the...

I Help Pay for Israeli Settlements

 By Mike Odetalla

As an American tax payer and a Palestinian, I help pay for the oppression of the Palestinian people and the illegal settlements that are built on their lands. How could I? Doesn’t that make me a traitor to my people? Well not directly of course, but never the less, I do, in fact, help keep the...

Living With the Holocaust

By Sara Roy

Though I cannot possibly say everything, it seems especially poignant that I should be addressing this topic at a time when the conflict between Israelis and...

I Saw Fit to Remove Her From the World

By Aviv Lavie and Moshe Gorali

There was a particularly festive atmosphere at the Nirim outpost on August 12, 1949, the eve of Shabbat. A week of dusty patrols and pursuits of infiltrators in the sands of the western Negev desert was at an end, and the commander of the hilltop site, Second Lieutenant Moshe, gave the order to...

Deception or Denial

By David Kersting

The relentless talk about an Israeli-Palestinian "two-state" solution for "peace" is the great ideological mystery of our era - along with the notion that a few Zionist "hardliners," by foolishly "overreacting," have ruined an initial hope of two happy states living side...

God Told Him to Do It

By Charles E. Carlson
