Heterodoxy

Progressive Terrorism

June 2024:We have terrorism masquerading as free speech; anti-Semitism is now a credential for the human rights community. New York’s governor has hopes of reinstituting the anti-mask law. It was repealed on account of the pandemic. It’s now once again necessary—this time to unmask violent anti-Semites who benefit from the anonymity of crowds and the darkness of night.

Trained-Seal Jews

April 2024:I am back in the times where you couldn’t turn on the radio or open a newspaper (and you had to open a newspaper to get your “political information” school credit) without hearing (or reading) “we, proud Soviet citizens of Jewish Ethnicity, thoroughly condemn the militarism and barbarity of the Zionist State.”

Insufficient Zeal for the Jihad

April 2024:Little did 17-year-old me know, however, that standard college acting curriculum in first-rate art colleges included lewd, anti-Semitic screeds against the country in which they stood, received with all the solemnity of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged).

Hamas Did Not Invent Jihad

March 2024:Sadly for the same Western media which constantly blame Israel for its enemies’ depravity, the post-9/11 love affair with the “greater” and “personal” jihad is supported by neither the Islamic sources nor historical fact.

Hamas Supremacism in Boston

February 2024:I walked into the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC) on Malcolm X Boulevard to attend a fundraising gala where three black Muslims—two radical imams and a Boston city councilor—were scheduled to appear. Frankly, I was more than a little bit nervous.

First, I am a Jew

November 2023:For centuries this phrase has been used against us. But now many of us state it proudly, with all the pride Herzl envisioned. And those Jews who haven't yet gotten there should now understand the tremendous gift it is to finally define ourselves, proudly.

Blasphemy, Fatwas + Jihad

November 2023:The language of Jihad is confined to the spreading of terror. It is not an invitation to a debate or civil discourse of any kind. It forsakes the presentation of ideas in favor of mob veto, the silence of intimidation.

Jihadism + Nazism

November 2023:The passing down of Nazi ideology from the Muslim Brotherhood to the more modern-day Islamist organizations truly casts the entire region heavily, and depressingly, under Hitler’s shadow. But it also presents a ray of hope.

Hamas on Campus

November 2023:It has become increasingly clear in recent years that administrators at many of our most prestigious institutions of higher learning are lost in a fog of political correctness. Their indulgence of anti-Semitic incitement is not a surprise. It is merely the latest in a long line of politically correct failures.

The Great Occupation Lie

November 2023:The de-colonization narrative in regard to Israel is not only false but dangerous. And just as in the Soviet Union it provided the necessary support for anti-Zionism to become fully operational, it is currently being used to demonize and delegitimize the Jewish people and Israel

Breaking the Cycle of Identity Politics + Anti-Semitism

September 2023:The anti-Semitism on the right is like a heart attack—it’s violent and fast moving. The right has guns and is hence more dangerous to our immediate security and wellbeing. The anti-Semitism on the left is like a cancer—it’s slow moving and corrosive. It threatens to disenfranchise Jews from politics and society. And both forms seem to be feeding off each other.

Authoritarian Angst

September 2023:Our fears of a creeping authoritarianism are not just a spasm. Both the left and the right have become embroiled in Orwellian tactics to curb speech and censor those with whom they disagree.

First, Teach Them How to Read

September 2023:In order for schools to meet their most basic mandate—educating students—they must first refocus on just that. And to do that, school administrators and educators need to stop playing partisan games and get back to teaching kids.

In the Age of the Influencer

July 2023:Curiosity compelled man to know more and reach outside of oneself. Conversely, in the age of the influencer, we are retreating further and further into the self. The worship of the ego paramount in selfies, filtered videos, and numbers of followers is taking us further from the pursuit of truth.

The Woke War on Puberty

July 2023:While the Constitution, the government, the educational system, and other institutions remain in place, they have been reduced to merely an external shell. The underlying values and procedures have been gutted and replaced by a hybrid of corporate fascism and cultural Marxism.

The (Un)Democratic Party

June 2023:The party has become undemocratic, representative of the elite, not the people. Instead of being the political party with the largest diversity of voices, positions taken by Democratic leaders are representative of a minority of the population.

The War on Academic Freedom

May 2023:This casual assumption that a diverse adult student body is not merely incapable of hearing or intelligently discussing disagreeable or even offensive words or concepts but is at risk of psychological harm should be regarded, frankly, as an insult to these very same students.

Our Secret Resource for Liberal Education

May 2023:Rather than educating to build an informed citizenry, we have entered an era of constraining dogma in which there is little to no room for free thought; where everything is political; where the goal of building an informed citizenry has been replaced by an environment in which thinking for oneself is not promoted.

The Negative Space in Combating anti-Semitism

March 2023:Here, arguably, is the self-imposed restraint of pursuing a comprehensive approach to combating anti-Semitism ─ likely more so in the artistic community, given its predilection for self-reflection and concern for the Other. This is not a blind spot; this is the hesitation of a tragic mindset.

The End of Major Political Parties

January 2023:Everyone knows that chaos provides a void to be filled. It is high time that classical liberals fill that void once more and establish a new and more just order—yet this requires vanquishing the inequalities so valued by Neo-Marxism and alt-right politics.

Candace Owens Goes Woke

December 2022:Candace has shifted the Overton window to accommodate anti-Semitism and, in the process, abandoned one of the most intrinsic conservative values of all: that every individual is a child of God, and thus no one should be discriminated against for immutable characteristics.

Modern Black Anti-Semitism Rounds Out the Horseshoe

December 2022:Anti-Semitism found in modern African-American communities ties together the two fringe extremes on the Horseshoe Theory, incorporating ultranationalist, Islamist, and Marxist ideas into its own Replacement Theory.  When people ask me what I think about Kanye West in light of the rapper’s recent anti-Semitic statements, I usually say that I’ve known he was a buffoon […]

Phantom Fantasia in the Middle East

September 2022:There never has been an Arab nation-state called Palestine. At the time of Israel’s founding, in 1948, the word Palestinian did not describe a distinct Arab people. In fact, the word itself was created by the Ancient Romans, and they were referring to Jews, not Arabs.

A Genealogy of the Idea of ‘Palestine’

September 2022:Despite Arab claims to the contrary, contemporary “Palestinians” have no historical connection to either the land conquered by the Philistines, nor Canaan more generally, as their forbearers largely remained within the Arabian Peninsula until shortly after the death of Muhammad in 632 CE.

Palestinianism as Counter-Myth + Islamist Cloak

September 2022:The truest thing that can be said about Palestinianism is this: if not for Zionism, Palestinianism would not exist—namely, the reconstitution of the national home of the Jewish people. And where Zionism is the spontaneous national liberation movement of a people whose connection to the land predates antiquity and modernity alike, Palestinianism was imposed upon Arabs who resided in what was once the colony of Palestine.

Israel + the Western Left

September 2022:One of the most dramatic political shifts that occurred during the latter half of the 20th century was the change in the attitude of the Western left towards the Arab-Israeli conflict, and their near universal adoption of the Palestinian-Arab narrative, particularly their claim to perpetual victimhood, complete purity, and total righteousness.

Zelensky: A Modern Day Jagiello

August 2022:Change the name of the aggressors and of the battle, give the warrior a green T-shirt and replace his swords with smartphones, and you could replace the medieval warrior-king, Wadyslav II Jagiello, with the President of the Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky.

Fairfax Leadership Fail

July 2022:While our leaders are more responsive when hatred comes from neo-Nazis and white supremacists, they still have no strategy for addressing it, and they seem utterly flummoxed and paralyzed by the more nuanced anti-Semitism arising from groups other than these.

Eternal Traditions

July 2022:The primary difference between the Eternal Traditions and other ways of thinking is that worshipful practice potentially transforms the individual into a person infused with Spirit or Oneness or G-d. The best practices of the Eternal Traditions open the hearts of the devotees.

Israel, Iran, Istanbul, and lethal beekeeping

June 2022:It’s a damnable situation where we, as Israeli Jews, walk around international tourist sites with a target painted on our backs, and most of the world is either indifferent towards our possible horrific fate or supportive of those actively and daily seeking and planning our demise.

Life is About Balance

February 2022:When you tell someone often enough that they are not needed, that everything about them is “toxic,” what do you think they’ll eventually do? They’ll turn around and leave you to deal with it all.

A Texas Jew Looks On

January 2022:An attack on one Jew is an attack on all of us; distinctions between religious practices and political leanings only deepen energy-sapping divisions. Terrorists don’t distinguish between Reform, Conservative, or Orthodox, and neither should we make fine distinctions in taking action in solidarity with Jews in danger.

To Life

December 2021:Of all of the pro-abortion talking points, only one seems to be the most honest to their cause, and that is the argument of personhood; is the fetus a human being, does it have value, and is it worth protecting? These are the questions to which pro-abortion advocates tend to resoundingly answer “no.” This is […]

Star Trek’s Soul on Display at Los Angeles Exhibit

December 2021:Does Star Trek have a Jewish soul—or at least a humanistic one? Seekers may find confirmation in a new museum show, Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds, at a Jewish institution, the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. The show will run through February 20, 2022. While you will have to bring your own interpretation to […]

How Feminists Gave Up on Females 

February 2022: Somehow the party that claims to love science has rendered taboo any discussion of the most basic facts of life, including the fact that female mammals have greater physical vulnerabilities–they are weaker, slower, and smaller–and also have the capacity to give birth and breastfeed, which is a tremendous power but also comes with many complications and increased vulnerabilities.

The Reform Movement Left Me

May 2022:A few years ago, it became apparent that Reform Judaism—through the efforts of its rabbinic and lay leaders—was moving away from these core Jewish beliefs. Reform Judaism is embracing the values and teachings of political progressivism, while moving away from Jewish values and teachings derived from Jewish texts.

Deadly Exchange – Deadly Silence

May 2022:“Deadly Exchange” is an anti-Semitic campaign that blames Israeli and American Jews for police assaults on American black people. It promotes the false claim that American police departments that take part in counter-terrorism and leadership training in Israel are actually trained to “terrorize black and brown communities” here in America.

Where are Today’s Maccabees?

May 2022:Jewish advocacy has gone corporate, answerable to a Board of Directors, fearful of fickle consumers, and obsessed with product placement. Calling attention to African-Americans or Muslims assaulting Jews will lead to accusations of racism or Islamophobia. And that would be bad for their brand.

Putin Brings Out the Horseshoe Theory

April 2022:It seems that Putin and his reprehensible invasion has put on display the Horseshoe Theory for all to see. The Horseshoe Theory posits that the two political extremes (far-right and far-left) are much closer in ideology to each other than they are to their mainstream moderate political wings (center-right and center-left).

How Did We Get Here?

May 2022:What most American Jews are really shocked by, but couldn’t see until it became inescapably obvious, is the fast-growing, unabashed anti-Semitism of the American political left, where they themselves reside.

The Covid Conundrum

November 2021:Since March of 2020, the United States and much of the rest of the world has turned itself upside-down and inside out over the Corona virus also known as COVID-19. A “Corona Culture” has emerged in the West and its foremost symbol is the mask. People are constantly bickering over the usefulness of the mask.

Free Speech & Social Media

February 2021:The great irony—if not outright fraud—of the internet is that it is a digital highway without speed limits. That’s true, of course, until the summonses show up. Users then learn of restricted access and banned accounts. Some receive lifetime sanctions, others mere probation.  The digital highway actually has unseen speed traps that operate with all […]
