Why Do Many Jews Support the Iran Deal?

Tuesday, Aug 25, 2015

The more one knows about the Iran deal, the more obvious it becomes that it is not a deal so much as it is a fraud. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition of a fraud is “something that is meant to look like the real thing in order to trick people.” That precisely describes the Iran deal. Virtually every claim made for it is either not true or insignificant. There are no “anytime, anywhere” inspections, as Americans were promised during the negotiations. –No American or Canadian inspectors will be allowed into Iran. –The agreement...

How Do You Know What’s Right and Wrong? Left-Right Differences, Part VII

Tuesday, Aug 18, 2015

How can we determine what is morally right? The answer to this question — the most important question human beings need to answer — is a major difference between Left and Right. For conservatives, the answer is, and has always been, that there are moral truths — objective moral standards — to which every person is accountable. In America, this has meant accountability to the Creator, the God of the Bible, and to Judeo-Christian values. For the Left, the answer has always been — meaning since Karl Marx, the father of Leftism — that there is no transcendent...

Responses to the President’s Arguments for the Nuclear Deal

Tuesday, Aug 11, 2015

At American University last week, President Barack Obama gave a vigorous defense of the Iran nuclear agreement. In the belief that every student who was present — indeed, all Americans — should hear the other side, here are responses to claims the president made. (For the information of my readers, I made a Prager University video on the agreement released last week that has about five million views on YouTube and Facebook — found at www.prageruniversity.com. Americans obviously want clarity on this issue.) –President Obama: “With all of the threats that we face...

It’s a Lion

The uproar over the killing of a lion named Cecil in Zimbabwe by an American dentist, Dr. Walter Palmer, is further proof that secular society inevitably produces moral confusion. In saying that, I do not in any way defend the killing of a protected animal. First, I do not hunt for sport (among other reasons, my religion, Judaism, opposes it). Second, if the lion suffered for a prolonged period, that would add to my condemnation. Third, if Palmer knowingly killed a protected animal, he should be prosecuted. Having said that, most of the reactions to what he did are more frightening than what...

The Left’s Contempt for America: Left-Right Differences, Part VI

Tuesday, Jul 28, 2015

This past week, one of the greatest differences between the Left and Right — both around the world and in America — once again came to light: how each views America. Every year for the past 67 years, the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner has been the major fundraising event for the Connecticut State Democratic Party. Not anymore. The party unanimously voted to drop the two Democratic presidents’ names because they were slaveholders. That is the way the Left sees American history. Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, the document that articulated the principle of...

1938 and 2015: Only the Names Are Different

Tuesday, Jul 21, 2015

We say that evil is dark. But this metaphor is imprecise. Evil is actually intensely bright, so painfully bright that people look away from it. Many even deny its existence. Why? Because once people acknowledge evil’s existence, they know they have to confront it. And most people prefer not to confront evil. That is what led to World War II. Many in the West denied the darkness of Nazism. They looked the other way when that evil could have been stopped and then appeased it as it became stronger. We are reliving 1938. British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain went to Munich to negotiate...

The Pope and the Hammer and Sickle

Tuesday, Jul 14, 2015

Last week the Marxist quasi-dictator of Bolivia, Evo Morales, presented Pope Francis with a gift: a carved wooden hammer and sickle cross on which the figure of Christ is crucified. The Vatican announced that the pope had not been informed in advance about the gift. And some commentators said photos of the pope and Morales show that the pope was actually offended. That was a false — probably wishful — interpretation. The pope himself later announced that he was keeping the hammer and sickle crucifix and taking it home, saying, “I understand this work. For me it wasn’t...

It’s All About Big Government Left-Right Differences: Part V

Tuesday, Jul 7, 2015
2015-07-05T023008Z_1_LYNXNPEB64037_RTROPTP_3_USA-JULYFOURTH

Clarity is conservatives’ best friend. If most Americans were clear about the differences between Left and Right, they would not vote Democrat in nearly the numbers they do. The Left understands this, which is why most left-wing rhetoric is dismissive of conservatives’ character — “sexist,” “intolerant,” “bigoted,” “hateful,” “xenophobic,” “racist,” “Islamophobic,” “homophobic” — rather than conservatives’ positions. By focusing on conservatives as people and...

The Formal End to Judeo-Christian America

Tuesday, Jun 30, 2015

The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on the redefinition of marriage seals the end of America as the Founders envisioned it. From well before 1776 until the second half of the 20th century, the moral values of the United States were rooted in the Bible and its God. Unlike Europe, which defined itself as exclusively Christian, America became the first Judeo-Christian society. The American Founders were Christians — either theologically or culturally — but they were rooted in the Hebrew Scriptures. Even Americans who could not affirm traditional Christian or Jewish theology...

America, Not Dylann Roof, Should Be Forgiven

Tuesday, Jun 23, 2015
2015-06-22T202727Z_1_LYNXMPEB5L0Y5_RTROPTP_3_USA-SHOOTING-SOUTH-CAROLINA

In an expression of extraordinary magnanimity, relatives of the black church members murdered in Charleston, S.C., arose one after the other to tell Dylann Roof, the murderer of their loved ones, that they forgive him. That I do not agree with what they did in no way diminishes my ability to be moved by their gesture. But I do not agree with it. First, consistent with my religion, Judaism, I do not believe that anyone but the actual victim has the right to forgive someone for the evil they have inflicted. If I steal from you, you have the right to forgive me, but your best friend...
