Donors sick of giving to Gaza — they should be

Donors ante up another $5.4 billion for the reconstruction of Gaza — again. They’re tired of this. To stop it, pay attention to who starts the Gaza wars.

In Cairo last Sunday donor countries pledged $5.4 billion to rebuild the Gaza Strip. They’re sick of this. They should be.

Qatar forks over $1 billion. The US, another $212 million. UAE, $200 million. The EU, $568 million. Turkey, $200 million. Kuwait, $200 million. Greece, $1.35 million. Some 50 donors nations, all told.

What a colossal waste.

Looking forward to JAAMM

“Jewish Authors, Artists, Movies and Music” — JAAMM — is the cultural celebration put on by the Mizel Arts and Culture Center at the Loup JCC. We’re looking forward to it.

If a Nazi is a Nazi...

A beheading by an Islamic adherent in America cannot coherently be recast as ‘workplace violence.’ To do so is to deny a critical lesson of the Holocaust. One often hears of “the lessons of the Holocaust.” Usually this is taken to indicate the need to counter hate, however minimally manifest, lest it grow into a monster, just as Hitler, originally a marginal figure, grew into a monster. But there are other lessons, quite pertinent to the hate that we find in the world today. One of ...

What happens if someone begins to show Ebola symptoms while in flight?

The superiority of the US health system is an irrelevancy if an airline passenger from an Ebola-affected area comes down with Ebola symptoms while in flight to the US. What happens if someone begins to show Ebola systems while in flight? There is no way to quarantine the victim. There is no medically guaranteed way to stop the spread of the virus to the other passengers. We are all suffering from an erroneous terminological association from the HIV/AIDS crisis. That association is the fact ...
