 Originally published May 4, 2022 https://www.queensjewishlink.com/index.php/opinion/6533-harvard-student-newspaper-endorses-the-bds-movement “That which stood for our ancestors applies to us, as well. For it was not only one individual who stood up against us to destroy us. Rather, in every generation they stand up against us to destroy us.” This quote, said by Jews worldwide at the Passover  Seder  a few weeks ago, is accompanied by horrific imagery to anyone with a passing knowledge of Jewish history. The beautifully illustrated Katz  Haggadah  shows a haunting image of Abraham making a covenant with G-d, but in the smoke are images of all the generations that seek to destroy the Jewish people. Starting with the Egyptians, it includes the Babylonians, Romans, Crusaders, Cossacks, Nazis, and Arabs. In the next edition, they should add another group, the one who strives to destroy the Jewish nation in this generation: the College Leftist. The deranged mentality and bloodlust of the Co

Originally published May 4, 2022 https://www.queensjewishlink.com/index.php/opinion/6495-massive-leak-reveals-scotus-plans-to-overturn-roe   In a shocking revelation on Monday night, a leaker from inside the Supreme Court, likely a law clerk, sent a 98-page draft opinion to Politico.  This marks the first time in the Court’s 233-year and over 25,000-opinion history that a draft has been leaked.  The contents?  The highest court in the land is planning to overturn the landmark and controversial 1973 decision Roe v. Wade. Immediately after the leak, barricades were set up around the Supreme Court.  Abortion activists started gathering and chanting obscenities to a building devoid of anyone besides security guards and janitors.  Pundits gathered on CNN and MSNBC wailing, weeping, and gnashing their teeth.  Democrats took to social media to claim that this is the end of democracy, the end of women, and the end of civilization as we know it. Unfortunately, they are wrong.  The overturning o

The Problem With Civility

Do Not Expect A Savior

That story, which is not only essential to Jewish history but well known worldwide, is deeply ingrained in our cultural psyche.  There is hardly a religion or culture that doesn’t have at least one Messianic figure at its root. It’s natural for everyone to believe that all problems, be it monumental like the enslavement of the Jewish people for hundreds of years, or comparatively miniscule like the freedom to say what you want on social media, will be solved by a savior. That is how the world reacted to the news that Elon Musk became Twitter’s largest single shareholder.  The

Dems Go All In On Gender Insanity

Originally published April 6, 2022 https://www.queensjewishlink.com/index.php/opinion/6387-dems-go-all-in-on-gender-insanity   Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson is set to be confirmed this week; after squish Republicans like Maine’s Susan Collins gave her the thumbs up, it is all but a certainty. While her confirmation hearings contained many blockbuster moments, the most lasting for our society was a simple question from Senator Marsha Blackburn: “What is a woman?” The question, obvious to anyone on the planet prior to 2017, has become a battle-cry for the sane.  It is a question so simplistic that Matt Walsh, the podcaster and earliest-known asker of the question, was surprised that it took himself so long to posit it.  Once he did, he never stopped.   Despite the biological facts that succinctly answer what a woman is, the left has been obfuscating said facts in favor of subjective self-realization to allow individuals to determine to which gender they belong.  For years, the silent major

Disney Throws a Fit Over Florida But Keeps Mum on France, Tokyo, Even California

Originally published on March 31, 2022 https://www.cnsnews.com/commentary/moshe-hill/disney-throws-fit-over-florida-keeps-mum-france-tokyo-even-california   After acquiring ESPN, Marvel, Star Wars, and 20th Century Fox, the Walt Disney Company is well versed in acquiring large and popular enterprises to bolster its own portfolio. They may have gone too far, though, when they acquired the reins of the Woke Mob by publicly kowtowing to a minute amount of their employees. Now they have to own that Woke Mob, and needless to say, it does not have the same return on investment as "The Avengers." Disney has been walking down this path for a while. They’ve placed  content warnings  on some of their most popular children's movies, pushed  critical race theory  on employees, and even  modified  their own strict dress codes in the name of self-expression. Recently, they announced that they were  adding  a lesbian kiss into the animated film “Lightyear” because they bought into the l

Biden’s Blunders Highlight Trump’s Triumphs

For those who haven’t watched the news coverage, Biden’s failure during his European trip must be giving White House Communications a never-ending conniption.  First he said that he would respond to Vladimir Putin’s use of a weapon of mass destruction “in kind,” implying that the United States would go so far as to nuke Russia.  Then he spoke to American soldiers about w
