  1. Tom Friedman accuses
    Congressmen of corruption

    Saturday, December 24th, 2011

    “In a recent New York Times column, long time contributor Thomas Friedman alleged that the ovation given to Bibi Netanyahu, Israel’s Prime Minister, during and following his recent speech to both houses of Congress . . . was “bought and paid for by the Israel lobby”.

  2. Why do Israeli advertisers hire design studios
    instead of ad agencies?

    Saturday, December 24th, 2011

    Many English ads seem to suffer from the fact that they are translated from Hebrew. There is far too much reliance on information – far too little on user benefits and sales persuasion. Such ads make me cringe.

  3. Finnish delusions

    In short, since the beginning of 1996, and certainly following the completion of the Hebron redeployment in January 1997, 99% of the Palestinian residents of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip have not lived under Israeli occupation; rather, they have been under the jurisdiction of the Arafat-led PA.

    Saturday, November 5th, 2011

    Rocket Attacks. Here’s a deterrent that should change the situation within days – a week or two at utmost:

  5. Standing down the hate-filled jury

    Friday, July 16th, 2010

    The jury found the five innocent because it accepted as a valid defense their claim that they vandalized the plant because they wanted to prevent Israel from carrying out war crimes in Gaza.

    Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

    The Editor, The Jerusalem Post. Sir, The Arabs fought us 3 times in the past 62 years and lost each time. They had three war aims. One, to push us into the sea or into mass graves. Two, to increase the size of their territories. Three to wipe Israel off the map of the world. […]

  7. Ineradicable incitement

    Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

    The Editor The Jerusalem Post Sir, Incitement comes with mother’s milk. The cessation of mutual incitement is just one of several requirements of Phase 1 of the Road Map. Both sides are required to first end incitement: the Israelis who never ever had such a program and the Palestinians who did. Would you believe this? […]

  8. The solution to Israel’s health problem

    Saturday, January 2nd, 2010

    The Editor Jerusalem Post Sir We keep hearing about the enormous problems which our country has with funding its health system.

  9. Nothing to fear but fear itself

    Saturday, May 3rd, 2008

    “I have become increasingly annoyed recently with Post writers who keep writing about Israel’s ‘fears’ when ‘concern’, ‘suspect’, ‘worry’, or ‘believe’ etc, would be more to the point.”

  10. Oen Letter to
    Genevieve Cora Fraser

    Friday, July 7th, 2006

    “You write that in 6 years Israel has killed thousands with their guided missile technology. Surely you must know that you are repeating a monstrous lie?
