But the leaders and rabbis living within Brooklyn’s Chasidic/Chareidi enclaves evidently think themselves different.

(I say that because they arrived at roughly the same time, making roughly the same arguments, using roughly the same phrases, and containing roughly the same number of spelling and grammatical errors.) Some of these letters (the non-coordinated ones, mostly) have been in support of the Jewish Voice for not being afraid to uncover the more deplorable goings on within our own

Apparently, officials from the Palestinian Authority are either immune to irony or are willfully ignorant in their approach to the “peace process,” which admittedly would explain the last sixty-odd years of Israeli history.

Ahmed Qurei, former Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority, wrote in a recent article that he believed a two-state solution, at this juncture, was no longer a viable approach to peace. Qurei said Israeli settlements in the West Bank have advanced too far, and called upon
