Op-Ed

This week marks the forty-fifth anniversary of the Six-Day War, the seismic event that has shaped the subsequent history of the Arab-Israeli conflict. The war’s immediate results, Israel’s quick defeat of three Arab armies and its unplanned takeover of territories with large concentrations of Palestinian Arabs, raised issues that are still unresolved today.

Over the decades a widespread misconception has developed that an expansionist Israel “occupied” Palestine in 1967, and that an end to that occupation will bring a just peace to the region. However, what actually happened 45 years ago is entirely different.

In 1967, there was no Palestinian state. The Arab world had rejected two decades earlier the UN’s two-state solution to create an

The rise to power of Islamists in Egypt skewers myths about peace.

As Egyptian voters recently went to the polls in what was their first-ever opportunity to choose a president in a free election, one element was missing from most of the media coverage. There was no gloss of optimism about the way embracing freedom could transform the country or the region.

Clearly, Jews are far more pro-Obama than the general population, among whom the two candidates are running neck-and-neck.The question returns every presidential election year: is the Jewish vote up for grabs?

For longer than anyone can remember most American Jews have supported Democratic candidates, and quadrennial Republican hopes to break the trend have remained unfulfilled. The best the Republicans have done in the postwar era was in 1980, when Ronald Reagan captured 39 percent of the Jewish vote. Despite all the talk about his relations with Reverend Wright and his alleged coolness toward Israel, Barack

The crime of sexually abusing a child, including adolescents and teens, is so heinous that the public is immediately shocked and angered. For a number of years, we have read of illicit acts involving Catholic clergy with adolescents and seminarians taking place in a number of countries, including the U.S. The New York Times, to its credit, has been relentless in keeping this situation under examination by its reporters over the years with front page stories devoted to exposing the abuses.
