Peter Guthery, 1937-2014

Peter Guthery embodied the most delightful words in our language, and the highest precepts of our religion. Let’s start with words. He was loving, brilliant, funny, intellectually curious, accepting, a faithful friend, joyful. One of the most respected and accomplished tax attorneys in Denver, he never set himself above others. In fact, Peter raised people up in ways too numerous to mention. A reassuring twinkle in his eye could banish the darkness and recharge the spirit. This wasn’t an empty gesture. Compassion was the essence of Peter Guthery, who died March 27, 2014, at the age of 76.

Pro-Israel supporters in Congress and AIPAC err in prioritizing bad manners over Israeli security

Senator Schumer and others divert the US from important Israeli security matters by insisting on US tourist visa waivers for Israeli travelers. There’s a good reason why Israel is denied the visa waiver. When it is said that the American “government” is pro-Israel, this refers to the executive branch, or to Congress, or both. It almost never refers to the State Dept., a pro-Arab bastion for decades. Going all the way back to Israel’s creation in 1948, the US, upon the initiative of ...

Add to the nomenclature of Iranian malice: Klos C

The Obama administration and the EU think Iran can be trusted in nuclear negotiations while Iran simultaneously ships lethal weapons to Israel’s enemies. “Full Disclosure.” Nice name for the Israeli operation that captured an Iranian ship loaded with lethal weapons destined for Gaza, i.e., destined for use against Israeli civilians. There isn’t much to say that the simple news report doesn’t contain. This, from JTA:
