    Why is Rabbo in prison? I’ve written this before. Why wasn’t he hanged after trial? Why don’t the Israelis implement capital punishment for all Arab terrorists who kill or even attempt to kill Israelis? Why does Israel out of “humanitarian” grounds release terrorists such as in the Gilad Shalil (?) case knowing many will go right back to murdering Israeli Jews? I don’t as an American like giving advice to the Israelis in that they know best what is best for their country but it disturbs me a lot as a Jew and a Zionist to witness this idiotic and dangerous leniency.

    Can ‘Islamic Reformation’ Work? (REVIEW)

    It is cocktail hour on an April afternoon in 2004. The sun is hot on Amsterdam’s canals, and I am sitting at Café den Leeuw on the Herengracht with Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Hirsi Ali is still a member of the Dutch Parliament, and we talk about Islam. Specifically, we talk about the concept of “moderate Islam,” or what she calls “liberal Islam.” And she has one word for it. “It’s absurd,” she says. “It’s complete nonsense. There is no ‘liberal […]

    Everybody knows that cooking varies from country to country. There are Italian restaurants, Chinese restaurants, etc. We associate different styles of cuisine with different languages. Do we also think of the association of different cuisines with different dialects? We should, because cooking also varies from region to region.

Nearly half of the women featured in the publication’s wedding pages since 1985 took their husband’s name after marriage, while about […]
