Rabbi Meir Soloveichik on Chanukah, The Triumph of Monotheism

Families on Hanukkah gather together and celebrate around dreidels, chocolate coins, and presents.

Antiochus Obama

Ever since Obama was elected we have said that he is a classic leftist Jew-hater. Obama spent 20 years as a faithful member of Jeremiah Wright’s church because Wright, a proud and vocal Jew-hater, articulated everything Obama felt: hatred of America, hatred of Jews. Obama’s envoy in the UN, Samantha Power, has a history of […]

Friday Photos: Because the World Really is Burning

Is it our imagination or is the global order falling into systemic disorder? North Korea, a giant gulag, has managed to intimidate the entire Hollywood system. Meanwhile, the Obama regime, allegedly sworn to defend and protect America from all threats foreign and domestic, seems far more interested in cozying up to the ruthless tyrants of […]

Hasmonean Past Is Present

As the Demorats and their ObamaCare law grinds millions of Americans into misery, we who love this republic, are deeply worried about its future. Simultaneously, Obama betrays Israel at every step, enabling the IslamoNazis of Iran to achieve their nuclear goal. Thus, Israelis, and those who love Zion, are also worried about the future.

Hamas Leader Khaled Mashal: We Will Not Relinquish Palestine from the River to the Sea…

On Saturday, Hamas leader Khaled Mashal gave a speech notable for its honesty. Which is to say that this IslamoNazi fully articulated the goal of Hamas: the liquidation of the Jewish state. When Hamas or the Palestinian Authority speak of the “occupation,” they are not referring Judea and Samaria. They are speaking of the entire […]
