From Israel: What Is Normal?

Posted: April 22, 2017 at 8:30 am   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

By Arlene Kushner We are back to routine after the Pesach week – and a splendid week it was in many ways. I wanted to say we are “back to normal,” but it is unclear to me precisely what constitutes “normal.” The balagan (confusion) of daily life, with its good and bad, is ever with […]

Ironically, however, it could be argued that the Western managerial welfare-state so beloved by the Left is […]

By Donna Garner http://www.educationviews.org/men-womens-bathrooms/ According to a 4.17.17 article in the Texas Tribune, the Waco-based Perryman Group, commissioned by Visit San Antonio and the San Antonio Area Tourism Council, recently produced a “study” that says, “Proposals to regulate which bathrooms transgender individuals may use could cost the state [of Texas] $3.3 billion in annual tourism dollars and more than 35,600 full-time jobs.”   […]

by Kris S. Held, M.D. Republicans may take another stab at getting rid of ObamaCare, better called the Unaffordable Care Act. But most Americans will hold their applause until they find out whether this next attempt will improve their situation, or make insurance even more unaffordable and further restrict their ability to even have a […]

From Israel: Hard Truths and Iron Determination

Posted: April 17, 2017 at 8:30 am   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

By Arlene Kushner Elhai Taharlev, 20, a member of the prestigious Golani Brigade of the IDF, was murdered in a car ramming at the Ofra Junction. I do not believe there is anyone who thinks it is a coincidence that this happened just five days before Pesach. Elhai was from the community of Talmon, in […]

By Andy McKinney The most accomplished undergrads in our nation began singing  “Fair Harvard” 181 years ago in 1836.  Now the over-educated fools in charge of that institution have declared that the final phrase “Till the stock of the Puritans die” is insufficiently inclusive.  The co-head of the Presidential Task Force for Inclusion and Belonging, […]

By Arlene Kushner I wrote yesterday about the marvelous statement made by MK Ohana. I knew there was a stand-alone video of his statement but didn’t locate it (on Israelly Cool) until after I had posted. It is powerful, and makes important points.

Canadian Conservatism: Memorializing the Battle of Vimy Ridge, 100 Years Later

Posted: April 9, 2017 at 11:15 am   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

By Mark Wegierski To many current-day observers, Canada’s participation in the First World War, and the great victory at Vimy Ridge in April 1917, may often seem like events that happened several centuries ago. The battle of Vimy Ridge was indeed one of the few bright spots in a grinding, bitter conflict. The roaring tide […]
