A Left-Zionist’s Very Bad Day (Iran)

By Ralph Seliger

This is the second of two posts.  Click here for the first.   Late in the afternoon, I received a second shock which pulled me in the other direction, to feel protective of Israel.  I often participate in a “meetup” to discuss history, current events and political philosophies.  A session that I attended that day discussed […]

Ocasio-Cortez Supports 2 States

By TTN

This may be considered a postscript to “Is Dem/Socialist Candidate Anti-Israel?”  Margaret Hoover, a great granddaughter of Pres. Herbert Hoover, has renewed the legacy of William Buckley’s “Firing Line” TV franchise on PBS.  Unlike Buckley, however, her hosting style is to politely question and discuss issues rather than to aggressively debate guests with opposing political […]
