Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said this week:

“We believe that it is a fundamental mistake to enable such a terrorist regime [Iran] to get to nuclear weapons, which is what the proposed agreement will give them. It will give them a definite pathway to nuclear bombs — not a bomb, but nuclear bombs.

“It will also replenish their coffers with many billions, actually perhaps up to hundreds of billions of dollars, to enable them to continue their terrorism and aggression. This is something that is wrong. It is dangerous. It is dangerous for Israel, for Italy, for Europe, for the United States, for the world.

“The world is properly concerned and aghast at the violence and savagery of ISIS [Islamic State terror organization]. No one would dream of allowing the Islamic State of ISIS to have nuclear weapons.

“Why would anyone consider giving the Islamic State of Iran, which is a lot more powerful than ISIS and acts with much greater power than ISIS, to have the additional power of nuclear weapons? That’s a mistake. The Islamic State of Iran, the foremost sponsor of international terrorism, should not have access to nuclear weapons. We need a better deal. This deal should not pass.”

It calls into question, in retrospect, his entire service as ambassador and makes one wonder whether a ...

What does a Confederate flag represent if not slavery?

Nine innocent blacks were murdered by a racist white. The Confederate flag sums it all up. Color us ignorant or disrespectful of the Southern “heritage,” if you like. But for the life of us we cannot figure out what a Confederate flag on the grounds of the South Carolina capitol is supposed to recall if not slavery. When we are told that it represents not racism, but the Southern “heritage,” well, what is that heritage if not slavery? What is “state’s rights” in the Southern con...

Missing Doris Sky for 25 years

Longtime readers of the Intermountain Jewish News will no doubt remember the colorful Doris Sky, our managing editor who was suddenly taken from our midst 25 years ago this week. A quarter of a century goes by in a flash when people busy themselves with their everyday lives and work toward momentous life events. That seems particularly true to those of us involved in publishing a newspaper week in and week out.

Twenty years for Rose Community Foundation

The founders of General Rose Memorial Hospital would never have dreamed . . . It is instructive what one can get used to. Case in point: Lists of grants that total in the millions of dollars — quarterly lists; or, to be more precise, some 72 such quarterly lists since Rose Community Foundation began its grantmaking. Rose Community Foundation was founded with the sale of Rose Medical Center in 1995, which evolved from General Rose Memorial Hospital, founded in 1949 by leaders of Denver Jewry...
