NATO is dead

NATO has lost the capacity and the will to defend its member states, even in the face of blatant Russian aggression. It’s so much easier to blame Israel for genocide.

I.

The strength of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, founded after WW II to stop an aggressor from ever again threatening the democracies of Europe, is based on one basic concept: an attack on one member is an attack on all.

Recovering the gloves, and ourselves

Have you noticed the mornings?  It’s only the end of August, but the mornings are slightly chilled, shadowed and sleepy. It feels like fall outside the window, which is no longer left open.

Jewish Voice for Peace, or for destruction?

How to Win Friends and Influence People is apparently one of the books that the local members of Jewish Voice for Peace never read. In a counterproductive attempt to get JEWISHcolorado to change its viewpoint on Hamas’ war on Israel, JVP entered the JEWISHcolorado building under false pretenses. Once inside, claiming to need a bit of help, JVP quickly facilitated the entry of many others and staged a demonstration.

Mazel tov on 10 years of Judaism in Douglas County

When the northern Douglas County suburb of Highlands Ranch was established just over three decades ago, it grew like wildfire. Before we knew it, this masterplan community had an elaborate system of neighborhoods, schools, businesses, a hospital — nearly every amenity a community could want. Among those flocking to Highlands Ranch were Jews — a lot of Jews, mostly unaffiliated.
