Israel and Iran Approach Brink of War as IAEA Sheds Light on Tehran’s True Nuclear Intent Attack on Iran more likely than diplomatic option, Says Peres Israeli President Shimon Peres, a political dove, said in an interview aired by Israel›s privately-owned Channel Two television last Saturday that an attack on Iran was becoming «more and more likely.» His comments came only days before a report by the UN›s International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna is due to be published and is expected to reveal in close detail the advances that Iran has made toward producing a nuclear weapon. On Sunday, Peres continued expounding upon his views regarding a direct Israeli confrontation against the apparent Iranian nuclear arms buildup. By Fern Sidman peaking to the Israeli media, Peres announced that, «The possibility of a military attack against Iran is now closer to being applied than the application of a diplomatic option. We must stay calm and resist pressure so that we can consider every alternative. I don›t think that any decision has already been made, but there is an impression that Iran is getting closer to nuclear weapons. The intelligence services of the different countries that are keeping an eye on Iran are worried and putting pressure on their leaders to warn that Iran is ready to obtain the nuclear weapon.» Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak are in favor of launching an attack on Iran though the depth of their commitment and their opinion on the timing are not clear. According to combined news sources, it appears that Netanyahu will face staunch opposition to a proposed strike by both the Israeli cabinet, and more specifically the security cabinet, which are the only bodies authorized to make the final decision on such a matter. As for capability, the Israel Defense Forces is obviously engaged in preparations for the mission as evidenced in the recently successful test launch of a new, intercontinental ballistic missile called the Jericho III that is


capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. In a joint one-week military exercise with Italy, six IAF squadrons consisting of 14 F-16 single and twin seater fighter planes took off from the Ramat David air base and were joined by Boeing craft for in-flight refueling. The Italian air force flew the advanced Eurofighter Typhoon, AMX, Panavia Tornado and F-16s. In response to Iran›s newest subterranean Fordo facility near Qom, the U.S. supplied Israel with GBU-28 bunker buster bombs in the third week of September. Foreign sources said the Jericho III ICBM has the capability of delivering a 750-kilo nuclear warhead to a distance of 7,000 kilometers and even further, if fitted with a smaller warhead. Western intelligence experts estimate that 42 missiles with conventional warheads are enough to seriously disable Iran›s main nuclear facilities in Natanz, Isfahan and Arak. Sources say that the formal exposure of the scale of the Iranian nuclear program and its indictment by the International Atomic Energy Agency is intended to shock world opinion and thereby help U.S. President Barack Obama to go full steam ahead with such sanctions as international boycotts of Iranian fuel and the Iranian state bank. Tehran has warned that these sanctions would be deemed an act of war. Those who oppose an Israeli air strike on Iran speculate that it will complicate relations with Egypt, whose transitional govern-

Prime Minister Netanyahu (above) supports a preemptive strike against Iran, but will likely face staunch opposition by both his cabinet and the Ministers Committee on Security Affairs which are the only bodies authorized to make such a decision.

ment is less hostile to Iran than Mubarak›s regime was, and will also jeopardize the peace with Jordan, whose territory Israeli planes might cross. In response, an attack will draw Iranian missiles and massive rocket volleys by Hezbollah and Hamas, and Syrian President Bashar Assad also may choose to join the fray in an attempt to suppress his country›s popular uprising. The proponents of an attack point to Israel›s bombing of the Iraqi reactor in 1981 by then Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin who acted against the advice of many top defense personnel and politicians and was ultimately proven correct. Saddam Hussein›s lack of nuclear weapons facilitated the American campaign in the two Gulf wars. In 1981, however, Israel did not coordinate the attack with the United States, as there was no American military presence along the attack route. Meanwhile, Iran faced mounting pres-

On Friday, November 4, French president Nicholas Sarkozy condemned Iran›s «obsession» with developing a nuclear capability, and said any attempt to engineer atomic weapons was a clear violation of all international rules. Though he appeared to rule out any imminent military campaign, he said France would be prepared to act if Israel was under threat. «France will not stand by with arms crossed,» he said. China also urged the Iranians to be less confrontational and said the regime needed to co-operate fully with the IAEA. It was time for Iran to show flexibility and sincerity, an official said.

Supreme Court Hears Zivotofsky v. Sec. of State Clinton Veteran Attorney Nat Lewin Defends Right of Jerusalem-Born Americans to Declare “Israel” as Country of Birth The law firm of Lewin & Lewin, LLP on Monday presented oral arguments to the U. S. Supreme Court on behalf of its nine year old client, Menachem Zivotofsky, in the highly charged case of Menachem Zivotofsky v. Secretary of State Clinton (No. 10-699). At issue in the case is the right of a Jerusalem-born American citizen to self identify as born in “Israel” on his or her U.S. passport and birth certificate. The case has attracted support and interest worldwide including the filing of some five amicus briefs. n 2002, Congress passed a law that directed the Secretary of State to record the birthplace of American citizens born in Jerusalem as «Israel» on these documents for American citizens who so request. Since the bill’s enactment, the Executive branch has refused to enforce the law, claiming that to do so would infringe on the President’s authority to «recognize foreign sovereigns.» Menachem Zivotofsky was born in Jeru-


salem soon after the law was passed. His parents requested that the place of birth on his U.S. passport and Consular Report of Birth Abroad be listed as «Israel.» The State Department refused the request and instead listed «Jerusalem» as the place of birth. Nathan Lewin and Alyza D. Lewin of Lewin & Lewin, LLP, agreed to represent the Zivotofskys and have litigated the case pro bono for eight years.

In the well-attended oral argument—the line for tickets began at 4:30 AM — Nathan Lewin argued that Congress has the final word on matters of foreign policy and that the recognition power, if it is at all relevant in this case, is not exclusively the President’s. In the alternative, he argued to the Court that it need not determine broad separation of powers issues but could decide that this law is within Congress’ authority to regulate passports and the self-identification of American citizens on such passports. Lewin explained that “the history of this [place of birth] line on the passport demonstrates . . . and the State Department has acknowledged it, that it is purely a means of identification.” The statute authorizes an American citizen to choose whether he wants to identify himself as born in “Jerusalem” or in “Israel” – and, if he was born before 1948, even in “Palestine.” Consequently, the law does not amount to recognition but accommodates a passport holder’s desire for selfidentification just as it does when it allows

Natanz Uranium Enrichment Facility

A Look at Iran’s Main Nuclear Sites As part of the Jewish Voice’s ongoing coverage of the Iran nuclear crisis, we are presenting our readers with a brief overview of Iran’s primary nuclear facilities. This list comes courtesy of the Voice of America News Service.

opponents of Israel to eliminate “Israel” from their passport and list “Tel Aviv” or “Haifa” instead of the country of birth. Nathan Lewin noted during his argument that “Congress recognized that with regard to the 50,000 people who have a passport that says “Jerusalem,” they are being denied a certain sense of self-respect that they feel they should be able to have in terms of their own identification. This is not a statute that is designed to create some political brouhaha or make a foreign policy statement. It’s a statute that frankly fits in with what the State Department does in accommodating to individual passport holders.” After the argument, when speaking with the press, Ari Zivotofsky, Menachem’s father explained that listing “Israel” as the place of birth on his son’s passport is significant for the family because “for us the modern State of Israel is historically and religiously significant. It was meaningful to us to have a son born in Israel and it is, therefore, important to us that he be allowed to identify himself as born in Israel on his American passport.”

ran’s disputed nuclear program includes uranium enrichment, electricity generation and research at several facilities. They are operating under international inspection or are in the process of being built. Here is an overview of Iran’s main nuclear facilities:


Iran’s uranium enrichment program is based in the central city of Natanz. The site contains an underground plant in which thousands of centrifuges are purifying, or enriching, uranium for use as a nuclear fuel. Low-enriched uranium is sufficient as a fuel for nuclear power plants. Highly-enriched uranium can be used to make nuclear weapons. The watchdog Institute for Science and International Security says many of the Natanz centrifuges are old and breaking down repeatedly, in part due to the impact of the Stuxnet computer virus that began infecting the facility in late 2009. Iran has been trying to install better centrifuges to expand enrichment, but international sanctions have Continued on page 39

Syria Crackdown Death Toll Tops 3,500 The U.N. human rights office says at least 3,500 people have been killed in the Syrian government’s eight-month crackdown on dissent, while activists say deadly assaults continued in the central city of Homs. avina Shamdasani, a spokeswoman for the U.N. High Commissioner on Human Rights said the total includes 19 people killed Sunday during the Muslim holiday Eid al-Adha. Activists said government security forces killed two people Tuesday in the Baba Amr district of Homs, Syria’s third largest city that is at the center an uprising against the rule of President Bashar al-Assad.

Youssef Ahmed, Syrian ambassador to the Arab League said Monday his country has taken significant steps toward fulfilling the deal, such as releasing 500 prisoners as part of a conditional amnesty. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Friday she would not advise anyone to turn themselves in to Syrian authorities. Syria’s state-run SANA news agency says Foreign Minister Walid Moallem has sent a letter to diplomats saying Syria is surprised by the remarks, and sees them as encouragement of armed groups committing criminal acts against the Syrian people.

U.S. concerns Nuland said Monday U.S. concerns about Syria remain unchanged, and that the government is trying to deflect attention from the “brutality and violence” it is carrying out against its own people. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said during a speech Monday about developments in the Middle East that leaders who respond with violence to calls for change should know “their days are numbered.” The Arab League has scheduled an emergency meeting in Cairo this coming Saturday to discuss “Syria’s failure to implement” the agreement to halt violence against protesters.

Turkey Gains Foothold in Gaza through Massive Aid Turkey is gaining influence in Gaza by increasing aid to Hamas 24fold in two years. Turkish flags are seen throughout Gaza. By Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu urkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is gaining influence in Gaza by increasing aid to Hamas 24-fold in the past two years, following the flotilla clash between Turkish-based IHH terror activists and the Israeli navy. Relations between Israel and Turkey turned an about-face for the worse after the Operation Cast Lead counterterrorist operation in late December 2008 and early December 2009. Afterwards, Erdogan increasingly supported Hamas and gave de facto Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh $2 million a year in assistance, according to Al Jazeera. That sum now has reached $48 million annually, most of it from the Turkish government but some also from the terror-linked IHH group and other organizations that classify themselves as ‘humanitarian.’ Last May, Erdogan declared that Hamas, outlawed by the United States, is not a terrorist organization but actually is a political party against the ‘occupation.’ He has made breaking the Israeli embargo on smuggling of terrorist weapons


into Gaza a cause célèbre. Erdogan has demanded, without success, that Israel apologize for the clash with the IHH on the Mavi Marmara ship in May 2010, when IHH terror activists nearly clubbed to death Israeli commandos and kidnapped three of them until the soldiers were able to overcome the boat.

Turkish money is flowing into Gaza building projects, and Turkish flags and Erdogan’s picture are seen at construction sites in Gaza. Erdogan wanted to visit Gaza during a trip to Egypt in the summer but scrapped his plans, possibly because of Israeli oppositon. One project is the “Turkish-Palestinian” hospital, for which Turkey has donated $34 million. ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS

UN Reports Security Council Divided on Palestinians A draft report from the U.N.

The Israeli Cabinet has also announced it will expedite construction of Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem and the West Bank and suspend the transfer of tax revenue it collects for the Palestinian Authority. A senior Israeli official said the moves were a punitive response to what he called recent unilateral actions by the Palestinians. Direct peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians broke down more than one year ago after an Israeli moratorium on West Bank settlement construction expired.

Israel Helps Former Nigerian Rebels Trade Weapons for Land Ex-Militants from Nigeria go to Israeli Institute to Learn Vital Skills for Self-Sufficiency After fighting big oil, ex-rebels from the Niger Delta of Nigeria have chosen to put down their weapons. Some 20,000 of them, men and women, have been granted amnesty by their government along with free land for developing agriculture. By Karin Kloosterman ut people who have long known only conflict and guns don’t remember how to till the soil, raise chickens or milk cows. This is where an Israel management non-profit has stepped in. For the second time this year, the Galilee International Management Institute has opened its doors to ex-militants from Nigeria. Twentythree arrived recently for a one-month training course as a group of 30 were heading back home, taking with them Israeli farming and agricultural expertise. The training included hands-on experience working the land, but also courses on basic farm management and business skills. According to Joseph Shevel, president of the Galilee Institute, Israel was singled out as a successful training ground after Nigeria had sent various other groups to several countries this summer in a pilot program. It’s not the first time Nigerians have trained in Israel. Shevel says that they’ve been coming for nearly 20 years, since Israel renewed its dip-


lomatic ties with Nigeria in 1992. But the institute never before trained ex-rebels. “The Nigerians’ land was taken from them by oil companies,” he said. “Nobody cared about them. [The oil companies] kicked out the local farmers and the local farmers started to fight.” The uprising had global consequences. Whenever a rebel would blow up an oil pipeline, world oil prices would rise, says Shevel, who expects 500 more trainees in Israel next year. Amnesty International is funding the rehabilitation of these former farmers.

Learning to earn a living Well before Israel was established as a state in 1948, its pioneers focused on agriculture. A hallmark of Israeli life is the kibbutz, or farming cooperative. And while most of the early kibbutzim have evolved to include privatization and industry, the agricultural spirit is still a cherished Israeli value. It was these kibbutzim that the Nigerians got to witness firsthand. The institute housed them at Kibbutz Beit Alfa and also arranged lec-

tures, field trips and hands-on lessons on fisheries, farming and handling livestock. Shevel says kibbutzniks always warmly welcome the institute’s visitors, who have even included former Palestinian terrorists. The latest group to Israel, which left last

month, will receive follow-up support in Nigeria as they endeavor to create viable farm enterprises.

Trainees from surprising places The Galilee Institute has trained people from about 160 countries over the years, including some unexpected places. Working through diplomatic channels with countries that don’t officially recognize Israel is part of the job, says Shevel, who travels on a second passport when necessary. Recently a group of Afghanis came to learn farming, and during one recreational evening at kibbutz they joined in an Israeli hora and taught the Israelis how to dance Afghan style. Shevel adds that the new Minister of Agriculture in Afghanistan is a former trainee. Yet Afghanistan has no diplomatic relations with Israel. Many of the African trainees who arrive are Christian and they are eager to see holy sites in Jerusalem and Nazareth – the Galilean birthplace of Jesus that’s just a short walk from the Institute. So it’s not only a training seminar, it’s also a holiday of a lifetime. According to the Israel Tourism Ministry, 31,750 tourists from Nigeria traveled to Israel in 2010, and this year there has been a nearly 60 percent increase. ISRAEL21C

Report: Iranian Official Acknowledge Complicity in Assassination Plot

Ireland Elects Anti-Israel, Anti-U.S. President Ireland elects as president poet Michael Higgins, who was against the American war in Iraq, protested against visiting President Ronald Reagan and rallied against Israel’s maritime embargo of the Hamas terrorist authority in Gaza.

Despite repeated denials of Iran’s involvement in a recent plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador in Washington, the Iranian foreign minister admitted his country’s involvement on last Wednesday (Nov. 2), Al Arabiya news reported. n Iranian source told the Saudiowned news agency that Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi recently met with Mohammed Nahavandian, former assistant at the National Security Council and the current president of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry. In the meeting, Salehi allegedly disclosed the involvement of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard’s Quds Force in the plot. «This is true. The plot was about to be carried out. It is not a figment of the American authorities’ imagination,» the source quoted Salehi as saying. The source is close to Gholam Hussein Elham, former spokesman of the Iranian government and a current dissident of the regime in Tehran. Manssor Arbabsiar, an Iranian-American car salesman living in Texas, and Gholam Shakuri, accused of being an Iranbased member of the Revolutionary Guard Quds Force, were indicted for their involvement in the plot in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan Oct. 20. Arbabsiar pleaded not guilty to the charges last week. For its part, the Iranian government insists the plot is an American fabrica-

tion and has even demanded an apology from the United States for its accusations against Iran. «Instead of pursuing this scenario and the wrong path of foreign policy in which they are moving, Americans had better move to correct this path,» Iran’s official news agency IRNA reported that foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said. «A letter has been sent [to the United States] ... It is our right to seek the official apology of the Americans in protest of this made-up scenario, as these allegations are not true at all,» he added. The United States dismissed the Iranian letter as «a rant» and Saudi Arabia has ruled out the possibility of negotiating with Iran about the plot. «There can be no compromise with Iran concerning the assassination bid because there is no need for it,» the Crown Prince Naif bin Abdulaziz, who is also the deputy premier and interior minister, told a news conference last week. «We are ready to deal with any scenario... with any means necessary.» REPORT BY IPT NEWS

e won a cantankerous election that was characterized by personal insults and charges of corruption among other candidates. One of his biggest disadvantages in vying for the mostly ceremonial position was his age. Higgins is 70, and the term of office is seven years. If he carries out his vow to remain “neutral,’ Higgins will not continue his activity, at least not publicly, against Israel. As a Member of Parliament, he said the embargo against terrorist smuggling was illegal. He also condemned Israel for “illegal” sovereignty over parts of Jerusalem restored to the Jewish state in Six-Day War in 1967. Additionally, Higgins said he is not a spokesman for Hamas but that there is a difference between the “political wing” and those who favor what he called “military action.” His opposition in the race for president included businessmen accused of corruption, a former IRA leader, a Eurovision song contest winner, and an eccentric, among others.

man, he condemned the Iraq war, arguing it was an act of “destruction on the civil society of Iraq.” He stated, “George Bush, you are not welcome in Ireland.” Former American George Hill, who lives in Ireland, told Arutz Sheva that Higgins “is the most anti-American president Ireland has ever had… He’s been at the forefront of organized protests and rallies directed at America for 30 years… During Reagan’s short visit in June 1984, Higgins was a keen participant in the protests against Reagan at Shannon Airport, in Galway and then outside the Dáil (parliament) in Dublin when Reagan was speaking there.” Hill added, “ While he hasn’t been a fan of a number of America’s presidents, he has allied himself with some of America’s enemies. He has been an admirer of Fidel Castro’s regime in Cuba, cited Castro favorably in the Dáil and simultaneously demanded that America lift its embargo on trade with Cuba. He also courted Sandinista leader Daniel Ortega. Higgins was also a supporter of the Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua and in 1989 he hosted Nicaragua’s Sandinista President Daniel Ortega in his own home.” “In 2004 he took part in a candlelight vigil to mourn the death of Yasser Arafat.”

ISEF Foundation International Fellows Get Tools for Handling Growing Anti-Israel Bias With efforts to delegitimize Israel increasing on campuses across North America, Israeli students at these institutions face challenges that transcend language and cultural differences. Enlisting the expertise of the pro-Israel advocacy group StandWithUs, the ISEF Foundation has undertaken to train its International Fellows – Israelis studying for M.A.s, Ph.D.s and postdocs at top institutions – to ensure that Israel’s side of the story is told. The Israel advocacy training program was held November 6 -7 at the Safra Synagogue in Manhattan. he ISEF Foundation is eager to help its International Fellows serve as good will ambassadors on North American campuses, countering calls for boycotts, divestment, and sanctions. StandWithUs has designed an action-oriented program geared to the needs of this specific group – top scholars pursuing advanced training in medicine, the sciences, law, and engineering. The sessions include point-counterpoint advocacy techniques, guided role playing, and concrete suggestions for proactive event planning that shines a light on the positive side of Israel.”Our International Fellows are highly intelligent and dedicated to the pursuit of academic excellence - already great assets to Israel’s future,” said


ISEF Executive Director Janice G.

DEAD SEA SCROLLS COME TO MANHATTAN Discovery Times Square Hosts Largest Collection of Israeli Artifacts Ever Organized in North America ead Sea Scrolls: Life and Faith in Biblical Times, a new exhibition featuring the most comprehensive collection of ancient artifacts from Israel ever organized, including one of the largest collections of the priceless 2,000-yearold Dead Sea Scrolls displayed in North America along with an actual three-ton stone from Jerusalem’s Western Wall, is making its world premiere at Discovery Times Square (226 West 44th Street) from October 28, 2011 through April 15, 2012. Visitors now have the opportunity to view many newly discovered objects from the Holy Land alongside the Dead Sea Scrolls – among them, the oldest known copies of the Hebrew Bible – and considered among the world’s greatest archeological discoveries. The exhibition includes hundreds of biblical era artifacts, exploring life in ancient Israel at the time the Bible was composed through the period when the Dead Sea Scrolls were authored and eventually hidden. The exhibition will provide a unique window into the period when the traditions we know as Judaism and Christianity emerged from ancient Israel. “The exhibition brings to life a fascinating period in history and vividly highlights how archaeologists and researchers piece together the past by examining and interpreting objects from daily life and ancient written documents. Israel’s archaeological sites and the artifacts they have yielded provide a record of extraordinary human achievement. The pots, coins, weap-


ons, jewelry, and of course, the scrolls on display in this exhibition constitute a momentous contribution to our cultural

legacy. They teach us about the past and also about ourselves,» said Dr. Risa Levitt Kohn, exhibition curator. James Sanna, CEO of Discovery Times Square, added: “This unique new exhibit embodies the best that Discovery Times Square has to offer – quality, historical stories that are brought to life right in front of visitors’ eyes. We are proud and excited to bring this exhibit to New York City as the world premiere.” “The collection on display highlights the Israel Antiquities Authority’s Department of National Treasures,” said Debora

Franklin Institute for a 5-month run beginning in May 2012. Exhibition highlights include more than 500 artifacts from the Biblical to Byzantine Period in Israel including many objects from recent archaeological excavations in Jerusalem that have never been publicly exhibited. The artifacts and Scrolls combine to provide a captivating and intriguing look at one of the most influential periods in history including the emergence

of ancient Israel and the births of Judaism and Christianity in the Holy Land. Objects on display will include remains of religious articles, weapons of war, stone carvings, textiles and beautiful mosaics along with everyday household items such as jewelry and ceramics. In addition, the exhibition will feature a scale recreation of a section of Jerusalem’s Western Wall – complete with an authentic three-ton stone from the Wall in Israel. It is believed that this stone fell from the southwest corner of the Second Temple’s outer wall during the Roman invasion in 70 CE. The 20-scroll exhibit (10 scrolls displayed at a time, with 4 scrolls making their world debut) will include pieces from the biblical books of Psalms, Isaiah, Deuteronomy and others. This exhibition is created by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) from the collections of the Israel National Treasures and produced by Discovery Times Square and The Franklin Institute.

WAR ON TERROR Attorney: U.S. Should Extradite, Prosecute Hamas Killers

Touro Hosts Homeland Security Seminars for Students, Faculty, and Staff

An attorney who has represented American victims of Palestinian terrorism has a suggestion for some of those Hamas operatives recently released in exchange for the freedom of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit: If the United States can apprehend them, prosecute those responsible for killing American citizens.


ome of those killers were sent to Jordan, which has an extradition treaty with the United States, writes Nathan Lewin Sunday in the New York

Sun. “No provision of any extradition treaty should preclude bringing these criminals to justice in the United States,” Lewin argues. “The Jordan treaty bars extradition for ‘political offenses,’ but it would be hard to claim that the mass terrorist killings of civilians in Jerusalem and Haifa were only ‘political offenses.’ At the least, Jordan should be put to that test.” American casualties are fairly common in Hamas attacks, including the 2001 bombing of a Sbarro pizza restaurant in Jerusalem, the 2003 bombing of a bus in Haifa and the suicide bombing of a Jerusa-

lem café that same year. Terrorists responsible were serving life prison sentences after being convicted in Israeli courts. U.S. laws dating back to the 1990s make it a crime to kill Americans outside the United States and to bomb Americans abroad. Congress passed such legislation “to insure that those who murdered American citizens like Judy Greenbaum, Abigail Leitel, and the Applebaums [father David and daughter Nava] would not be able to avoid just punishment for their crimes,” Lewin writes. “That goal can now be realized only if the United States Department of Justice takes prompt and effective action.” REPORT BY IPT NEWS

Touro College is hosting a series of seminars on homeland security at its Bay Shore campus. The lectures, which began in late October, will continue to be held this and next month, and their aim is to raise awareness of potential harmful situations facing the United States. he seminars, to be offered by Professors John Pitrowski and Rich Maher, will focus on threats to the U.S. under current world conditions. The professors will discuss various possible sources of danger, what can be done to mitigate those risks, and what steps can be taken to lessen the threats on a global scale. Each lecture will concentrate on a different type of threat and consider its impact on society - on both a personal and economic level. Additionally, they will examine misinformation frequently disseminated by the media. The lectures will include question and answer sessions. All of the lectures will take place between noon and 2 PM in Room 144 of Touro’s Bay Shore campus and will be open to the students, faculty and staff of Touro. Professor Pitrowski said that they intend to provide additional seminars to the general community in the future. The first lecture, held on October 27, was on the topic of natural disasters, and featured Mike Salentino, Director of Emergency Management for the City of Glen Cove. Future seminar topics include the following: • Thursday, November 16 - Chemical Threats


• Thursday, December 1 - Bio Threats, with Dr. Frank Antonawich, Chairman of Department of Biology, St. Joseph’s College • Thursday, December 1 - Nuclear Threats Professor Pitrowski, who teaches computer classes as well as a course in emergency management at the Bay Shore campus of Touro, is an active member of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. He holds the rank of Division Commander of Divisiion 12 of the Southern Region of District One. Professor Pitrowski served in the USCG when it first came under the auspices of the Department of Homeland Security in 2003. Professor Maher teaches undergraduate English courses at the Bay Shore campus and serves as a field experience and practicum advisor for Touro’s Graduate School of Education. Professor Maher is a reservist in the USCG and holds the rank of Chief Petty Officer. He is also a Division Staff Officer of Public Education for Division 12 of the Southern Region of District One. Like Professor Pitrowski, Professor Maher served in the USCG when it came under the Department of Homeland Security.

Increase in Terrorist Attacks in October Main source of increase was rise in rocket fire from the Gaza Strip In October 2011, there was an increase in the number of terrorist attacks carried out against Israel - 80, compared to 68 in September. he data was published in a monthly report released by the Israel Security Agency. In October, 46 attacks originated in the Gaza Strip, compared to 12 in September. However, the number of attacks in Jerusalem and the Judea and Samaria region decreased slightly. In Jerusalem, there were six attacks, compared to 17 the previous month. In Judea and Samaria there were 28 attacks, compared to 39 the previous month. One Israeli was killed in Ashkelon on October 29 as the result of a rocket fired by terrorists in the Gaza Strip. In October, 52 rockets and six mortars

Israel and Iran Approach Brink of War as IAEA Sheds Light on Tehran’s True Nuclear Intent Continued from page 1

would be disastrous.»We have imposed sanctions that continue to expand; we can toughen them to put pressure on Iran,» Juppe told Europe 1 radio. «We will continue on this path because a military intervention could create a situation that completely destabilizes the region. Everything must be done to avoid the irreversible», he declared. Reports from the United Kingdom reveal that the Ministry of Defense is under the distinct impression that the U.S. may decide to fast-forward plans for targeted missile strikes at some key Iranian facilities. British officials say that if Washington presses ahead it will seek, and receive, UK military help for any mission, despite some deep reservations within the coalition government. In anticipation of a potential attack, British military planners are examining where best to deploy Royal Navy ships and submarines equipped with Tomahawk cruise missiles over the coming months as part of what would be an air and sea campaign. They also believe the U.S. would ask permission to launch attacks from Diego Garcia, the British Indian Ocean territory, which the Americans have used previously for conflicts in the Middle East. Defense Ministry officials in the UK indicated that President Obama would prefer to steer clear of a new and provocative military venture before next November›s presidential election, but they warned the calculations could change because of mounting anxiety over intelligence gathered by western agencies and the more belligerent posture that Iran appears to have been taking. A London-based newspaper has been informed that the IAEA›s soon to be released bulletin could be «a game changer» as it is expected to provide unprecedented details of the research and experiments being undertaken by the Iranian regime. According to the Associated Press, the report will «suggest that Iran made computer models of a nuclear warhead and includes satellite imagery» of what the IAEA believes is a large steel container used for nuclear arms-related high explosives tests. On Monday, November 7th, Agence France-Presse reported that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused the U.S. and Israel of seeking international support for a military strike on Iran. In addition to that, officials now believe Iran has restored all the capability it lost in a sophisticated cyber-attack last year. The Stuxnet computer worm, thought to have been engineered by the Israelis, sabotaged many of the centrifuges the Iranians were using to enrich uranium. It was reported that up to half of Iran›s centrifuges were disabled by Stuxnet or were thought too unreliable to work, but diplomats believe this capability has now been recovered, and the IAEA believes it may even be increasing. Ministers in the UK have also been told that the Iranians have been moving some

Ehud Barack

Benjamin Netanyahu

more efficient centrifuges into the heavilyfortified military base dug beneath a mountain near the city of Qom. The concern is that the centrifuges, which can be used to enrich uranium for use in weapons, are now so well protected within the site that missile strikes may not be able to reach them. The British military source said the Iranians appeared to be shielding «material and capability» inside the base. Another source with knowledge of Britain›s military planning, said that within the next 12 months Iran may have hidden all the material it needs to continue a covert weapons program inside fortified bunkers. He said this had necessitated the UK›s planning being taken to a new level. Officials in Tehran, however, vehemently deny any nuclear military ambition and insist that their nuclear program is exclusively designed for power generation and medical purposes. In comments published on Sunday, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi accused the IAEA of «political» behavior and said its report would be «baseless.» «I believe that these documents lack authenticity. But if they insist, they should go ahead and publish. Better to face danger once than be always in danger,» several Iranian dailies quoted Salehi as saying. «We have said repeatedly that their documents are baseless. For example one can counterfeit money, but it remains counterfeit. These documents are like that,» Salehi said. Israel›s Haaretz newspaper has reported that U.S. officials had failed to secure a commitment from Israel that it would coordinate any attack plans with Washington. Israeli Defense Minister Barak has denied reports that he and Netanyahu had already decided to attack Iran over the opposition of military and intelligence chiefs, but he said «situations could arise in the Middle East under which Israel must defend its vital interests independently, without having to rely on regional or other forces.» Haaretz said a majority of the 15 members of Israel›s security cabinet were still against an attack on Iran, and a poll published by the newspaper found Israeli public opinion divided, with 41 percent in favor, 39 percent opposed and 20 percent undecided. On November 8th, the IAEA released its much awaited report on Iranian nuclear capabilities. The agency said they have «serious concerns regarding possible military

Shimon Peres

dimensions to Iran›s nuclear program» and added that, «after assessing carefully and critically the extensive information available to it, the agency finds the information to be, overall, credible. This information indicates that Iran has carried out activities relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device. The information also indicates that prior to the end of 2003, these activities took place under a structured program, and that some activities may still be ongoing.

Given the concerns identified above, Iran is requested to engage substantively with the agency without delay for the purpose of providing clarifications.» The Vienna-based agency said some of its more than 1,000 pages of information indicated Iran has done work «on the development of an indigenous design of a nuclear weapon including the testing of components.» Previous IAEA assessments have centered on Iran›s efforts to produce fissile material - uranium and plutonium - which can be put to peaceful uses like power generation, or be used to make a nuclear bomb. But the new update focuses on Iran›s alleged efforts towards putting the radioactive material in a warhead and developing missiles. Iran, which says its nuclear program is peaceful and which has been hit by four rounds of UN Security Council sanctions, dismissed the new IAEA report prior to its publication, saying it was based on falsified information.

KOCH & GIULIANI URGE OBAMA TO TAKE STRONG RESPONSE TO IRANIAN THREATS Former Mayors Ed Koch and Rudolph Giuliani have released a joint statement urging the Obama Administration to do everything in its power to foster democracy in the Middle East, and prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. iting its continued threats to both the U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia and its support of both Hamas and Hezbollah, Mayor Koch and Giuliani recommended that Iran be, “placed on notice that an attack upon Israel or Saudi Arabia will be considered as equivalent to an attack upon the U.S. to which the U.S. will immediately respond.” Both Mayors also pointed to Iran’s support of the Assad regime in Syria, and the recently foiled plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the U.S. as reasons for a more muscular Iranian policy. “Tehran has been the strongest supporter of the Assad regime in Syria, has worked to undermine our ally Saudi Arabia and other friendly Gulf states, and is the strongest supporter of Hezbollah and Hamas, two anti-Western terrorist organizations in the region,” wrote Mayors Koch and Giuliani. The former Mayors also urged that the announced Republican candidates for the presidency in 2012 publicly endorse the position and urge action on the part of the Obama Administration. The text of the statement is as follows:

FORMER U.S. SENATORS ISSUE BIPARTISAN CALL FOR JONATHAN POLLARD’S RELEASE The chorus of calls from prominent Washington politicians and judges, former and present, Democratic and Republican, for President Obama to release Jonathan Pollard continues to grow as his health declines and his time served reaches 26 years later this month. This marks the first time that a group of former or current U.S. senators wrote a letter to a U.S. president asking for Pollard’s release. The signers are a bipartisan group of 18 former U.S. senators, ten Republicans and eight Democrats. Their main argument is that while Pollard

Recently, the President of the U.S. and the Attorney General of the U.S., Eric Holder, announced that Iranian officials ordered the assassination of Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the U.S. and the blowing up of the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Washington, D.C. In our view, Iran must not be allowed to develop nuclear weapons. Further, it should be placed on notice that an attack upon Israel or Saudi Arabia will be considered as equivalent to an attack upon the U.S. to which the U.S. will immediately respond. The risk to the United States through an Iranian nuclear capability goes without saying. The United States and our Allies need to

In addition, they argue that Mr. Pollard’s health continues to decline while he has been a model prisoner despite serving his term “after more than two decades in the harshest prison conditions” and has, along with the State of Israel, “repeatedly expressed remorse for his actions.” In addition, many of the former U.S. senators who signed onto the letter were former members of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence including Sens.

Dennis DeConcini (D-Ariz.), Alan Simpson (R-Wyo.), Arlen Specter (Republican and later a Democrat, Penn.), Evan Bayh (DInd.), Connie Mack (R-Fla.), and David Durenberger (R-Minn.). It is noteworthy that the above senators had access to classified information on Pollard’s crimes. Additionally, some of the former senators who signed onto the letter had previously not supported Pollard’s release. Vice President Joseph Biden’s opposition to Pollard’s release remains one of the main political obstacles standing in the way of a presidential pardon, clemency, or commutation.

Apartheid, You Say? 600 Arab Students Begin School Year at University Run by “Settlers” in “West Bank” The largest Jewish community in Samaria, Ariel, has a population of 20,000 – but this number increased by about 50% Sunday as 12,000 students from all over Israel began their studies for the fall and winter term at the Ariel University Center (AUC). The university center is very well known for its engineering, communications, and architecture schools, among others. By Frank Mecklenburg tudents were busy finding their classrooms, learning about their schedules and chatting with friends whom they had not seen for a while. The atmosphere was alive with excitement and expectation. The majority of students at AUC are Jewish but there are also 600 Arab Muslim students enrolled. A third year Muslim student, Naka Sarsur, said that she is attending AUC largely because of how highly it was recommended to her by friends. She said that the teachers are all very helpful and the students are extremely friendly. She says that she relates to the Jewish students as people she likes and not on the basis of religion. One wonders how anti-Israeli


propgandists would spin these facts. If Judea and Samaria are under “Apartheid” regime, what are Arabs doing at a university populated largely by “settlers” in the heart of “disputed territory”? Eldad Halachmi, Vice President of Resource Development at AUC, said that at the end of this school year AUC will have full university status, making it the eighth university in Israel. Colleges only provide undergraduate studies while universities focus on graduate degrees and research. He said that since AUC already offers graduate degrees and has a number of research projects it will be easy for it to qualify as a university. He broke down the student population into 10,000 fulltime graduate and undergraduate students, 1,000 students in a special preparatory program to make up

He said that he highly values the close connection that students have with the faculty

and that the number of students in the classroom is much smaller than in other larger schools. One would never guess that this university is situated on disputed land or that there is danger all around. There was no sense of fear or danger at all, but only a very pleasant and friendly atmosphere. COURTESY OF SAMARIA LIAISON BUREAU

GLOBAL DAY OF JEWISH LEARNING BRINGS WORLD JEWRY TOGETHER ON NOVEMBER 13 In six words - an infinite well of life, love, and wisdom. The Shema Prayer, this year’s theme of the second annual Global Day of Jewish Learning, to be held on Sunday, opens with six seemingly small words – words that carry within each segment of each letter a declaration of the bond, principles, and identity of the Jewish people. or the Jewish people, the Shema is a call, a slogan, a sign of identification, and an expression of great emotions,” says Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz as he explains the choice of theme for this year. “Shema Yisrael, ‘Hear O Israel,’ has been with us from the very beginning of our history.” Around the United States and across the globe - from Oregon to Florida, from Vermont to California, from Latvia to Uruguay, from Canada to China - over 300 events are being held. People in more than 250 communities and in over 40 countries are once again joining in a day of celebration and learning. This year’s Global Day organizers see the potential for a revival in Jewish learning by using the Shema Prayer as the backdrop because it is the unifying and inspiring text of the Jewish People. Utilizing workshops, family educational programs, seminars and breakout sessions, parents and children alike across the interdenominational spectrum are joining in community-wide events. Along with the Aleph Society, organizing


partners of the Global Day of Jewish Learning include: the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC); the Jewish Community Center Association; Jewish Education Service of North America; Jewish Federations of North America; Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life; and the Shefa Institute in Israel. Visit www.TheGlobalDay. com for the full list of partners and participating communities. The Joint Distribution Committee is the lead international partner in this endeavor. The JDC extends its reach into the farthest reaches of the Jewish people: among them, Havana, Cuba, and the Tunisian city of Djerba and Almaty in Kazakhstan. Last year, in Mumbai, 3,000 people came together to study Jewish texts. This year’s events are being held in 71 locations in the Former Soviet Union as well as in Peru, Morocco, and in six locations in Romania. Since the 1980s, the JDC has been Aleph’s partner, even as it cares for Jews around the world, addressing both the physical and the communal needs of the Jewish people.

As Rabbi Steinsaltz so eloquently stated, “The Shema prayer has accompanied the Jewish people for thousands of years – in its ancient homeland and in exile, in times of peace and war, in the gas chambers, and along with the cries of triumph. This was the Jewish ‘password.’ It was how Jews recognized each other – despite geographical, linguistic, and cultural differences.” The Rabbi further points out that the Shema is just as significant in its unifying aspect between individuals. “We Jews are slowly becoming strangers to one another. The divisions are not just ideological or political; they are harsher than that. Because we face ‘free floating hatred’ (the opposite of love freely given), we are losing our common language, the words we use to share, and the words we use to recognize one another. Instead of useless

dialogue and discussion, let us find the words and ideas that we can share – and let us say them together. A small beginning is the Shema. These are words and profound thoughts to which we can all still agree.” “‘The Global Day of Jewish Learning’ remains unique in fostering Jewish unity through a simultaneous ‘learn-in’ around the world. Our interest is to spark and nourish a love for Jewish learning – and to rejoice in the unity that Jewish learning can engender,” said Rachel Weiss-Berger, Global Day coordinator. Centered on the Shema theme, the Global Day Curriculum Guide offers topics, source materials, and questions for conversation to facilitators managing study groups or cultural events, who may then adapt the material to suit the educational backgrounds and interests of their groups. The Global Day curriculum, published with the generous support of author and educator Fanya Gottesfeld Heller, was developed by highly experienced educators for learners at all stages. The Curriculum can be downloaded in its entirety or by topic at The Global Day of Jewish Learning’s supporting partners include the governing bodies, leadership, and ordaining institutions across the religious spectrum.

NJ Dept. of Education Commissioner Christopher Cerf Meets with Leaders of Jewish Education in Lakewood Christopher Cerf, Acting Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Education, met on Monday with a broad representation of Jewish educational leaders from across the state, representing over 20,000 school children. The meeting was arranged by Agudath Israel of New Jersey and hosted in Rabbi Aaron Kotler’s office in Beis Medrash Govoha, in Lakewood, NJ. Among those in attendance were: Rabbi Yehiel Kalish, National Director of Government Affairs for Agudath Israel of America; Rabbi Meir Brody, Director of Agudath Israel of NJ; Rabbi Yosef Posen, Executive Director of the Lakewood Cheder school (one of the largest private elementary schools in America); Rabbi Shlomo Chaim Kanarek, dean of numerous Lakewood institutions; Rabbi Heshy Hirth, Executive Director of Yeshiva Ketana of Passaic; and Rabbi Shmuel Goldstein, Dean, Yeshiva of North Jersey. By Sarah Pascal he purpose of this meeting was to discuss the needs of the Orthodox Jewish schools in New Jersey. The school leaders in attendance had the opportunity to present the commissioner with specific issues pertaining to their schools and familiarize the commissioner with the needs of their respective communities and fast growing student populations.


pact on his students. Another important issue discussed was the proposed Opportunity Scholarship Act (OSA) and its importance to Orthodox schools. The tuition crisis is perhaps one of the greatest challenges the parent bodies of these schools face. The crisis is twofold; on an individual level parents are struggling with the daunting task of making tuition payments in this poor economy. At the same time, the schools are facing herculean struggles to stay afloat.

Commissioner Christopher Cerf of the New Jersey Department of Education meets with a delegation of Jewish educators in Lakewood.

“There is a view that the department of education is focused exclusively on the public school students,” says Rabbi Meir Brody. “This administration, led by Governor Christie and Department of Education Commissioner Cerf, views non-public school students and their schools as an integral part in the mosaic of a broad and proper educational system. We are therefore grateful that the Commissioner has come to hear directly from our educators and discuss the paramount issues that our schoolchildren and their families are facing.” Mr. Michael Inzelbuch, attorney for the Lakewood BOE, spoke about inequities that need to be addressed in the school funding formula. “The Lakewood Community,” says Rabbi Aaron Kotler, “was profoundly encouraged by Commissioner Cerf’s visit and his keen understanding of the need for Trenton to fix Lakewood’s funding formula”. There was particular focus at the meeting on state technology grants for nonpublic schools which has been eliminated and the school nurse funding budget which was downsized. Rabbi Goldstein mentioned that the cuts had a profoundly negative im-

The proposed Opportunity Scholarship Act is a pilot corporate tax credit scholarship bill that will primarily fund scholarships for low-income students attending the state’s lowest performing, chronically failing public school districts. A portion of the scholarships would be available to students attending non-public schools in certain districts. The scholarships would enable students to attend out-of-district public schools, or participating non-public schools anywhere in the state. The Opportunity Scholarship Act would be very beneficial because funding would be given directly to parents allowing them to choose what is best for their child’s educational needs. Mr. Cerf, understanding the distinctive nature of Lakewood, and recognizing the challenges facing the parents of non-public school students, explained “the state is trending in the right direction, with regards to OSA and school choice in general. I now hear clearly the message the Governor needs to hear from your communities.” Those present at the meeting indicated that they are looking forward to continued collaboration with the commissioner in their mission to educate children.

The people’s voice Cynical Sarkozy, Boorish Obama Badmouth Bibi The presidents of France and the United States traded disparaging remarks about Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu during a private conversation at the G20 summit, only to find out that their microphones were still on. Whoops! uring their discussion at the summit in Cannes, presidents Sarkozy and Obama were overheard by reporters complaining about the Israeli leader. Sarkozy, who made headlines last month by repeatedly making comments to the media about how the existence of a Jewish state is “silly” and a “meaningless” idea, was kvetching to President Obama about the Israeli PM. “I cannot bear Netanyahu,” said Sarkozy, “he’s a liar.” Not to be outdone, President Barack Obama is said to have replied: “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him even more often than you.” Of course, the presidents were unaware that their microphones were active, and hence, their slander of Netanyahu was meant to be private. But that’s of little consolation to Israel supporters who feel that the exchange is indicative of a pervasive anti-Israel bias in the current presidential administration. Sarkozy’s remarks are perhaps less surprising in light of his openly anti-Israel statements of late. Needless to say, the presidential faux pas has caused a flurry of activity among political organizations and individual leaders, from the city council all the way to Capitol Hill. The Anti-Defamation League was among the first to express its “disappointment” over the remarks. Speaking for the ADL, National Director Abe Foxman said: “We are deeply disappointed and saddened by this decidedly un-Presidential exchange between Presidents Sarkozy and Obama. President Obama’s response to Mr. Sarkozy implies that he agrees with the French leader. In light of the revelations here, we hope that the Obama Administration will do everything it can to reassure Israel that the relationship remains on a sure footing and to reinvigorate the trust between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu, which clearly is not what it should be.” “What is sad,” Foxman added, “is that we now have to worry to what extent these private views inform foreign policy decisions of the U.S. and France – two singularly important players in the peace process.” Closer to home, New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind was a bit more tongue-incheek in his response to the gaffe. “I want to personally thank President Obama,” said Hikind “for again showing his true colors.” “Mr. Obama’s unbridled contempt for Prime Minister Netanyahu, though appalling, is really not terribly surprising,” Hikind observed, adding that it was nonetheless conduct unbecoming the


President of the United States. “It is moments like these,” intoned the assemblyman, “that make me even prouder that I endorsed Republican Congressman Bob Turner in the 9th Congressional District race despite my Democratic Party affiliation. Congressman Turner’s win sent a message to President Obama that Democrats will not follow him blindly into re-election.” Indeed, criticism of Obama and Sarkozy’s remarks wasn’t limited to the Jewish community. Next up on the soapbox, Congressman Michael Grimm (a Republican representing Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn) called the comments “highly offensive” and demanded of President Obama “a formal apology on behalf of the American people.” “Whether the microphones are on or off,” Grimm declared, “the message to our allies in Israel should always remain the same: ‘We stand with you.’” “President Obama’s comments are disgraceful and inappropriate coming from someone who holds the highest office in the United States,” said Rep. Grimm. “They provide a poor and inaccurate reflection of the American people he was elected to represent, and they must be rescinded.” I am reminded of a classic Chasidic story where a man, who had been spreading lashon hara (gossip) about a certain rabbi came to regret his misdeed, and sought to make amends. The rabbi told the man, “Take a feather pillow, cut it open, and scatter the feathers to the winds.” The man thought this was an odd request, but it was a simple enough task, and so he did it gladly. When he returned to tell the rabbi that he had done as he was asked, the rabbi said: “Now, go and gather the feathers. Because you can no more make amends for the damage your words have done than you can recollect the feathers.” So too in this case, the damage is done. These politicians and assorted communal leaders, clearly seizing an opportunity to advance their own “Jew cred,” (a term I’m fairly certain I just made up), were nonetheless correct in their assessment. Regardless of your own views regarding Israel in general, or Netanyahu in particular, this sort of behavior is something one would expect to find in a school yard, not an international meeting of heads of state (though, among grade school students, it would likely result in some sort of punishment). I’m not saying that Presidents Obama and Sarkozy should be made to sit in the corner for the rest of the day, dunce caps on their heads. But…no, wait. You know what? That’s exactly what I’m saying.

Editor: Are the Israeli people’s sentiments accurately depicted in your article “Netanyahu Rides Shalit Wave, Livni Sinks”? I hope not. I hope that they are not so short-sighted as to think that the release of over 1,000 Palestinian prisoners, several of whom were convicted of murdering innocent Israelis, would improve Israel’s security. In fact, you reported that after the initial release of the Palestinian prisoners for Shalit, Palestinian terrorists have fired 39 or more rockets into towns in southern Israel and killed one Israeli from Ashkelon, Ami Moshe. Also, why doesn’t the United States government extradite those released terrorists who were convicted of killing American citizens and try them in the United States? SINCERELY, MENACHEM LUBITZ BOSTON, MA

Editor: I appreciate your coverage of the new documentary movie “Unmasked.” Anti-Semitism is alive and well throughout our current ‘modern’ but not necessarily morally-advancing world and probably is exacerbated by the economic troubles as well as the social unrest worldwide. I agree with Prof. Chesler that “Unmasked” has distinguished participants and provides a good historical overview of the history of anti-Semitism in different parts of the world. The reality of the danger of anti-Semitism is indeed bracing and does indeed pose an existential threat to Israel and the West. Let us do all of the necessary hard political work through pro-Israel, Zionist organizations and by promoting the growth and flourishing of Torah Judaism and large, thriving Jewish families in Israel and in the diaspora! SINCERELY, BENNY ZELBOWITZ LOS ANGELES, CA

Editor: Well, why are Islamists winning, as Bret Stephens discusses in last week’s issue? For one, the Western countries don’t have the guts and honesty to face up to the rise of Islam, if not fundamentalist Islam-based ‘democracies’ in the Middle East. There is no evidence that “democracies” based on Islam promote and support our western notion of freedom. I’m puzzled why Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times believes that most Egyptians oppose the Muslim Brotherhood. On what does he base that assertion? Let’s see what happens in Tunisia now that the Islamists have won elections there. There’s no reason to be optimistic there, and I can’t say that I’m optimistic about the prospects of a ‘Western-style’ democracy taking hold in Egypt, or, for that matter, Libya once it holds elections. SINCERELY, NORMAN MELNIKOFF BROOKLYN, NY

Editor: With all due respect to distinguished Holocaust survivor author Elie Wiesel, I cannot understand, after what he and his family endured in the Holocaust, how, according to Phyllis Chesler’s article last week on the movie “Unmasked,” Mr. Wiesel could be so optimistic that he would never see anti-Semitism rear its ugly head again in his lifetime, especially considering the tendency of human beings towards evil. Look at how many atrocities were committed by human beings against ‘other’ people in the 20th century alone. SINCERELY, NATHAN KLEINMAN WHITE PLAINS, NY

Buzz of Israel Attacking Iran Just a Smoke Screen The media buzz claiming Israel is preparing an attack on Iran’s suspected nuclear installations has reached a fevered pitch. My information, however, indicates the Jewish state is prepping for a different war, an international effort that could potentially escalate into a direct confrontation with Iran. By Aaron Klein f Israel were indeed on the brink of launching air raids on the mullahs, it would not first hold such a public discussion on the matter or leak to the news media the debate about the subject from within Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s cabinet. The visible Israeli military preparations, including this week’s missile tests, most likely are related to the strong possibility of a U.S.NATO-led campaign against Israel’s Syrian neighbor to the north. The regime of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad – a key partner to Iran – has been accused of major human rights violations, including “crimes against humanity,” in clamping down on a violent insurgency targeting Assad’s rule. That uprising is in large part led by Muslim Brotherhood-oriented militants, some reportedly armed by Turkey. The same “Responsibility to Protect” global doctrine used to justify the U.S.-NATO airstrikes in Libya could be applied to Assad. Responsibility to Protect, or Responsibility to Act, as cited by President Obama, is a set of principles, now backed by the United Nations, based on the idea that sovereignty is not a privilege but a responsibility that can be revoked if a country is accused of “war crimes,” “genocide,” “crimes against humanity” or “ethnic cleansing.” Mass demonstrations were held last week in Syrian insurgent strongholds calling for the international coalition in Libya to deploy in Syria. Damascus officials claimed to me that NATO troops are currently training in Turkey for a Turkish-led NATO invasion of Syria. Separately, informed Middle East security officials said Iran has been inspecting Syrian forces and has been advising Syria about possible Syrian military responses should NATO attack Assad’s regime. The same officials also said Russia recently sold Syria a large quantity of Iskander ballistic missiles and that, in light of the NATO threat, the Russian government renewed its pledge to sell Syria the advanced S-300 antimissile system. A Turkish-U.S.-NATO strike would have immediate implications for Israel. The Syrian president has publicly warned foreign intervention in Syria would cause an “earthquake”


across the region and create another Afghanistan, while directly threatening the Jewish state. Assad reportedly made similar comments in a meeting in early October with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmad Davutoglu. He was quoted stating, “If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than six hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv.” Assad also reportedly warned that “all these events will happen in three hours, but in the second three hours, Iran will attack the U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf and the U.S. and European interests will be targeted simultaneously.” The Syrian president’s threats are not empty. His military possesses tens of thousands of rockets and missiles capable of striking every zone within the Jewish state. The Syrian and Iranian-backed Hezbollah is similarly armed and can rain rockets and other projectiles in a combined onslaught with Iran’s proxies in the Gaza Strip and West Bank. Syria’s military is not entirely capable of standing up to NATO. Its strategy, therefore, is to immediately target Israel to create a wider regional offensive that would greatly complicate an international effort to dispel the Assad regime. Iran could become directly involved in any war. Its Shiite fundamentalist influence in the region is now challenged by the Sunni-led Turkey, which is on the march, attempting to become the Islamic superpower in the Middle East and Persian Gulf. Turkey is being aided in its pursuit by the Obama administration. Iran rightly views the possibility of a Turkish-NATO effort in Syria as a thinly veiled attempt to check its own power by changing the Iranian-backed leadership in Damascus to a Muslim Brotherhood-oriented Turkish partner. If Tehran feels Syria is losing the war effort, Iran could escalate the conflict by attacking U.S. or Israeli interests. In turn, Israel or the U.S. could retaliate by striking Iran. A “Responsibility to Protect” war in Syria likely would translate into a larger regional war, a clash of Shiite and Sunni superpowers, backed by larger international players, all seeking to remake the Middle East in their interests. Israel is wise to prepare for the possible coming storm.

Will Kent State Let Pino Off the Hook? Yet another tenured professor has abused his position to defame and attack Israel on campus without, it seems, any professional repercussions. Kent State University Professor Julio Pino’s cry of “Death to Israel,” hurled at a visiting Israeli diplomat during a university forum, has made national and international news. The professor’s actions have been generally portrayed as beyond the realm of penalty and simply a matter of free speech. By Aviva Slomich AMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America) and several recognized student organizations sponsored a presentation by Ishmael Khaldi, an advisor to Israel’s Foreign Ministry, in which the Israeli spoke about his experience growing up as a Bedouin in Israel and rising to become a foreign diplomat. Largely ignored in the focus on the First Amendment is the question of Kent State’s own institutional regulations and enforcement of its Employee Code of Conduct as it applies to Professor Pino’s disruptive actions and threatening statements. The code requires that every employee of the university must “demonstrate respect for all campus and external community members,” refrain from “discourteous treatment of the public,” and not “threaten,


accost, demean” or use “abusive language.” If an employee violates any of these principles, the university has formal disciplinary procedures that are to be enacted. Pino’s verbal assault on Khaldi obviously violates Kent State’s Employee Code of Conduct. The question is whether the university will take action. Free speech expert and attorney David Hudson of The First Amendment Center has commented on the general issue of employee conduct and free speech and notes that “it is acceptable for government employers to discipline employees for speech that undermines the integrity of the office.” The day after the event, KSU President Lester Lefton issued a statement “deploring” Pino’s invective. Lefton made clear that Pino “embarrassed” the university, which values critical thinking and encourages its students to engage with differing opinions. He added that “calling for the de-

struction of the state from which our guest comes (as do some of our students, faculty and community members) is a grotesque failure to model these values.” While Lefton’s statement was commendable, no senior figure at KSU has yet indicated there will be an investigation of Pino’s violation of the Employee Code of Conduct or suggested he will be disciplined. There are other ways in which Pino seems to have violated school conduct codes. He distributed extremist, anti-Israel material at the same Ishmael Khaldi event, thereby violating the solicitation provision in the conduct code which prohibits such activity. The materials encouraged students to boycott Israel. This is not the first time Pino has expressed extreme anti-Israel views. In 2002, he published a eulogy in the campus paper praising Palestinian terrorist, Ayat alAkras, who murdered two Israeli civilians, teenager Rachel Levy and Chaim Smadar. Pino described the terrorist as his “beloved Sister and Martyr,” and commended al-Akras for her act of “courage.” He wrote: “Even the numbskull who parades as president of the United States heard you, and, following the text written for him by his handlers, expressed astonishment at how a

teenager could perpetrate such an act. Simply, it is pronounced ‘justice’ and spelled C-O-U-R-A-G-E.” The U.S. Secret Service raided Pino’s home in 2009 amid allegations that he was operating the self-described “jihadist news service” Global War, that provided “battle dispatches, training manuals, and jihad videos to our [Muslim] brothers worldwide.” Pino admitted to contributing articles to the jihadist website. If no meaningful penalty is imposed on Pino, the university will have, in essence, deceived students, alumni, and community members – because the publiclyposted guidelines amount to a promise that students will be able to learn in a safe setting, hold meetings and voice their thoughts and opinions in a civil environment. Tolerating, without penalty, a violent threat uttered by a tenured professor at a student gathering – in combination with the active efforts of the same individual to damage Israel by promoting boycotts of that nation – would seem to signal outright indifference to the safety concerns of certain students. And what does Professor Pino have to say about all this? After refusing to give comment to several news outlets in the wake of the Ishmael Khaldi event, he broke his

Prof Julio Pino

silence and said: “What I spoke was for the sake of the children of Palestine, and no other reason. The only politics I have are: ‘There is no God but God, and Mohammed is His Messenger.’ Peace be upon you.” His words are unlikely to comfort pro-Israel students, Jewish and Christian alike, or their parents and families – or, one assumes, conscientious university officials. Indeed, Pino’s seemingly escalating anti-Israel behavior can only be unnerving to many. And many at Kent and beyond may wonder what he will say and do next. They may also wonder when the university will say: Enough.

Online Learning Modules Help College Students Expand Their Knowledge of Personal Finance NSLP’s Financial Avenue, an online financial education program for college students, has added 10 new, interactive minimodules to further expand students’ knowledge of key money management topics. Module topics include Banking Basics, Borrowing Money, Understanding Insurance, Investing in the Future, Understanding a Paycheck, Taxes and You and Your First Job. he modules, paired with the six existing Financial Avenue courses that cover budgeting, credit cards, paying for college, credit history, identity theft and contracts meet all of the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Financial Literacy and Education Commission’s Financial Literacy Core Competencies Requirements. These Core Competencies are designed to help students establish a solid foundation to help them navigate financial matters through college and beyond. The interactive modules engage participants from the start. Through video, social media posts, “practical application” exercises and knowledge checks, participants can quickly grasp the skills they need to navigate their way through each topic; each mini-module takes just five to fifteen minutes to complete. Studies show financial education is vital to helping students and young adults bet-


ter achieve their career and financial goals. Many higher education students are learning for the first time how to manage their own money. While some students have held jobs during high school, many have not been responsible for making fundamental decisions such as choosing a bank, buying insurance or borrowing money. Using the Financial Avenue program, students first focus on the main courses of budgeting, contracts, credit cards, credit history, identity theft, and paying for college. The mini-modules expand student knowledge beyond the basic financial capability topics, reinforce basic concepts, and coach students to put what they learn into practical application. For example, students learn about the advantages and disadvantages of on- and off-campus jobs, the components of a typical paycheck, the difference between gross and net pay, how banking fees work, and how to tackle debt. These issues are of-

ten major stressors for students. “In study after study we’re seeing the same thing—students want to increase their financial capability,” said Kate Trombitas, NSLP vice president of financial education and former associate director of student wellness at Ohio State University. “We knew on our campus that money was the secondleading cause of stress, and that it was creating a barrier to academic success.” Many schools now realize that financial education can have a positive effect on student spending and savings habits, as well as on lowering student loan default rates. As a result, more schools are seeing the value in providing financial education to their students. Several reports reinforce the importance of financial education. A 2009 Sallie Mae report underscores the importance of edu-

The weekly says that the Erdogan’s “mildly Islamist Justice and Development (AK) government” is right to pursue a policy of zero problems with the neighbors. “This is a big improvement on previous governments that largely ignored their own backyard. Turkey remains a bastion of NATO, with the biggest army after the U.S. and a vital American air-force base at Incirlik. It is EU members like Cyprus, France and Germany - and not Turkey - that have done most to stall Turkish negotiations to join their club.” “The Economist” agrees with critics of Turkey over Erdogan’s “mercurial and often autocratic instincts”, which are “not conducive to careful diplomacy, as his belligerent recent outbursts over Greek-Cypriot and Israeli gas exploration in the eastern Mediterranean have shown.” REPORT BY GLOBES, ISRAEL BUSINESS NEWS

In that study, researchers analyzed credit card use among select groups of student loan applicants and found that 92 percent of undergraduate credit cardholders charged textbooks, school supplies, or other direct education expenses, up from 85 percent in the previous study. The 2009 “Journal of Student Financial Aid” states that researchers who explored the effects of loan counseling or consumer education programs found they appear to be related to lower rates of default. Students need and want to improve their money-management skills. The Financial Avenue program provides students with practical knowledge to help them make informed decisions about how to manage their money. In difficult economic times, it is imperative to give students the resources they need to be effective money-managers today, as well as plan for a successful financial future.

“The Economist” is urging Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whom it calls an “Ottoman dreamer” to mend relations with Israel. Although the British weekly slams what it calls “intransigent” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his “foolishly stubborn” refusal to make even the smallest apology over the death of eight Turks and a Turkish-American on the Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara incident in May 2010, it warns, “But if Mr Erdogan calculates that he can pander to anti-Israeli prejudice at home without paying a price abroad, he is making a mistake.” he Economist” says, “Turkey stands to gain from stable Arab-Israeli relations, which it ought ideally to be well-placed to promote. And, like it or not, many in the West take Turkey’s attitude to Israel as a yardstick of its broader intentions. If Turkey wants to preserve good relations with the West, it must find some way of mending fences with Israel as well.” The magazine points out that “In their awakening this year, many Arabs have looked to Turkey for inspiration. Turkey is not just a fellow Muslim country and their former imperial power. It also offers, for all its faults, a shining (and rare) example in the Islamic world of a strong democracy and a successful free-market economy. And the Turks have responded well, if sometimes belatedly. They were early to call for change in Egypt. They endorsed NATO’s intervention in Libya. They are now unequivocally backing the opposition to the Assad regime in neighboring Syria.” On the whole, “The Economist” rejects

UJA-Federation Brings Together Diversity of Jewish Community for Month of Volunteerism UJA-Federation of New York believes in the power of the Jewish community to achieve the biggest impact. That is why UJA-Federation is supporting Jewish Social Action Month (JSAM), which transforms the Jewish month of Cheshvan from a month without Jewish holidays into a global month celebrating volunteerism and community building. By funding 34 programs with participants from 100 organizations in the New York area, UJA-Federation is bringing together Jews from different backgrounds to collaborate in community-based social action projects that will help make life better for thousands more individuals and families. ne such program leveraging the strength of the Jewish community is Growing Together, a collaboration between UJA-Federation, Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty (Met Council), Hazon, Dor Chadash, Jewish International Connection of New York (JICNY), Abraham Heschel School, and the Jewish Child Care Association of New York (JCCA). Beginning in Cheshvan, and continuing throughout the year, Growing Together will engage young volunteers through intergenerational “greening” programs serving low-income seniors. At the kickoff events, seniors and young volunteers will build window box herb gardens at Met Council housing sites through-out New York City, which the volunteers will help monitor and maintain throughout the year. “We are proud to bring our expertise in low-income senior housing together with the greening movement, and to collaborate with JSAM volunteers to enrich seniors’ lives,” said William E. Rapfogel, Met Council CEO. “Growing Together gives volunteers a hands-on experience to give back to their neighbors in need and to take action right here in New York City. We are grateful to UJA-Federation of New York for recognizing the need to celebrate volunteer services and to continue to help build relationships within the Jewish community.” “Growing Together embodies the unifying spirit of JSAM and UJA-Federation’s belief that we can do more good when we do it together,” said UJA-Federation Executive Vice President and CEO John S. Ruskay. “We are helping to bridge the gap between people of diverse social and geographical backgrounds who might not have otherwise come together for a single cause. The collaborations created during JSAM will foster deeper working relation-

GROUP SUPPORTING JEWISH PRESENCE AT RACHEL’S TOMB MARKS MATRIARCH’S YAHRZEIT AT BROOKLYN GATHERING Several hundred people gathered Sunday night at the Manhattan Beach Jewish Center for a very special dinner commemorating the yahrzeit (the anniversary of the passing) of Rochel Imeinu (“our mother Rachel”), the beloved matriarch of the Jewish people. Also known as “Jewish Mother’s Day”, the yahrzeit falls out on the 11th day of the month of Cheshvan and coincides with the biblical portion of Lech Lecha. The event was sponsored by the Rachel’s Children Reclamation Project, an organization that preserves the memory of Rochel through ensuring a Jewish presence near her grave site on the way to Bethlehem and to hosting a variety of events including dedication of Sifrei Torah, brissim, weddings, and bar and bat mitzvahs. By Fern Sidman CRP’s many projects include the creation of the “Museum of Jewish Aliya”, the actualization of Beit Bnei Rochel on Derech Chaya Rochel, the establishment of Yeshiva Bnei Rochel for men and “Chaya Rochel v”Ruth”; a religious academy for women, along with the Bnei Rochel biblical garden, complete with wedding chuppah. Emceeing the event was Evelyn Haies, the president of the RCRP, who established the organization in 1995. Ms. Haies lives in a home near Kever Rochel and has been highly active in Jewish outreach over

the years. “Some call Mar Cheshvan a sad month,” said Ms. Haies, “however it is at this time when Avraham chose chesed, kindness and we remember our mother Rochel who put others before herself, affirmed the good ways of the past and became a role model of good for the future.” Taking note of the fact that this year marks the 17th anniversary of the formation of the RCRP, Ms. Haies said, “the Gematria of the word “Tov” in Hebrew which means “good” is 17. When you add that to the Gematria of the word chesed (kindness) which is 72 it equals the gematria of the word redemption. Rochel Imeinu is remembered on this day for over 3600 years because of her good middos and actions meriting the redemption. This will be a year to reverse all mistakes and misdeeds. Let us choose the good derech and know only betterment in a life of Torah truth, kindness and betterment with our actions and the help of the Hand of Hashem.” As Ms. Haies recounted the biblical narrative of Rochel she reminded her audi-

ence that the Jewish people were redeemed because of her merits. “Why did G-d hear the tears of Rochel Imeinu? Because she refused to embarrass her sister Leah when she found out that she would not be marrying Yaakov Avinu. She gave her beloved sister the signs that she had previously arranged with Yaakov. Rochel could have been the mother of the majority of the 12 tribes of Israel but did not think of herself. It was because of this that Hashem heard her cries for her people as they were being exiled and promised her that they would return to their borders.” Delivering the inspired keynote address for the evening was Rabbi Yitzchok Fingerer, renowned lecturer and author of

The evening’s keynote speaker - Rabbi Yitzchok Fingerer

the acclaimed book on Jewish philosophy entitled, “Search Judaism” (Targum 2009). Rabbi Fingerer received his advanced rabbinical ordination from the venerable sage, HaRav Avrohom Pam, ZT”L of Yeshiva Torah Vodaas, is a senior lecturer and educational director at Aish HaTorah in New York City and works as an adjunct professor at the Lander College for Women. “The trials and tribulations that Rochel endured served to undergird the Jewish people throughout the centuries,” said Rabbi Fingerer. “We learn from Rochel how one woman’s sacrifice shaped world destiny.” He added that the paradigm of Rochel is the not only that of “the mother of Israel but the progenitor of Moshiach.” “She and Yaakov shared a transcendental love for all time,” he said. This year’s dinner featured a stellar list of honorees including Aliza Basmenachem Karp, author of the historical novel “Banished,” who received the prestigious Rochel Imeinu Breaking the Silence Award. As a

steadfast and committed activist for Israel, Ms. Karp recalled her profound connections with the people of Gush Katif and the activities she undertook to protest the 2005 disengagement from Gaza “My attitude about the disengagement was that it was not really going to happen, but if we did not fight it, it just might. I hosted visiting activists and helped with fundraising. I assisted in the organization and PR for a number of rallies in the New York area, where I would always arrange for part of the program to include children taking the stage and leading the crowd in reciting verses of the Torah.” Offering her sincere appreciation to Evelyn Haies and the Rachel’s Children Reclamation Foundation, Ms. Karp said that her book “Banished” will “educate people about the importance of understanding the disengagement, with the determination that we have to stop it from happening again.” The recipient of the Rochel Imeinu Chesed Award was long time Manhattan Beach resident, Susan Lasher, wife of New York State Assemblyman and New York City council member Howard Lasher. As an exceptionally committed community activist and leader, Mrs. Lasher vocalized her support of the work of the RCRP and praised Mrs. Haies for her outstanding dedication. Lori Lowenthal Marcus and Beth Gilinsky, two women in the forefront of Jewish activism were honored with the Rochel Imeinu Jewish Leadership Award. Ms. Marcus is the president of Z Street, an internationally recognized ardently Zionist organization created in 2008 in an effort to shift the nature of the public debate about Israel and the Middle East. She is also the chair of the executive committee of the National Conference on Jewish Affairs which is dedicated to affirmatively supporting Israel’s right to be the Jewish homeland and to challenging those in the global arena who are aggressively undermining those rights. Beth Gilinsky is the president of the National Conference on Jewish Affairs and is

the founder of the Jewish Action Alliance. Ms. Gilinsky has organized countless rallies and demonstrations in support of Israel and has championed the cause of those who human rights have been trampled upon by radical Islamists. Presenting the Rochel Imeinu Actualist Awards was Malky Grunwald, an 11th grade student at the Stella K. Abrahams Yeshiva High School for Girls. Ms. Grunwald was the first young woman to celebrate her bat mitzvah at Kever Rochel four years ago. “I am also the spokesperson for the RCRF fund to promote meaningful connections to our future generation of young girls to celebrate their heritage and to commemorate their rite of passage into womanhood at the site of mother Rochels’ tomb. Our goal is to promote middos, manners and to find our mission in life; leading a Torah life with derech eretz,” she said. Ms. Grunwald presented the Actualist Awards to Dr. Alexander Berenblit, Rabbi Tamir Zaltsman and his son Hillel and to Yitzchok Fridman. A devoted member of the Manhattan Beach Jewish Center, Dr. Alexander Berenblit is a dedicated physician who together with his wife Simona has transmitted his interest in science and his love for the Jewish people and the State of Israel to his children. Rabbi Tamir Zaltsman and his son Hillel also received the coveted award. Rabbi Zaltsman is a man who together with his wife Ora and the members of his family have rendered many years of service in the field of kiruv rechokim especially on behalf of Jews from the former Soviet Union, both in Israel and in southern Brooklyn. Yitzchok Fridman, a strong-willed and proud Jew is the only member of his family to have survived the Holocaust. Having provided enormous help and support to many members of his wife’s family during those perilous times, he lived to emigrate to the United States with his wife Ada. As the patriarch of an extended family, he is also a devoted and active member of the Manhattan Beach Jewish Center.




5 Killed as Syrian Troops Storm Residential District of Homs Syrian rights activists say government forces stormed the Baba Amr residential district of Homs Monday, kicking in doors and making house-to-house arrests after nearly a week of deadly assaults that reportedly killed more than 110 people. The activists said security forces backed by tanks and heavy weapons killed at least five people in Homs and the surrounding province Monday, including an 8-year old girl. The violence followed clashes Sunday that left at least 16 people dead in the region. According to the activists, army defectors have been fighting back against the pro-government forces in Homs, Syria’s third largest city that is at the center of an eight-month uprising against the rule of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The increasingly violent crackdown on dissent prompted Syria’s key opposition group, the Syrian National Council, to declare the city a “disaster area” and to call for international intervention to protect civilians. The Arab League scheduled an emergency meeting in Cairo on Saturday to discuss “Syria’s failure to implement a deal struck last week to end the offensive against protesters.” Syrian ambassador to the Arab League Youssef Ahmed said Monday Syria has taken significant steps toward fulfilling the deal, such as releasing 500 prisoners as part of a conditional amnesty. The United Nations says at least 3,000 people have been killed in the Syrian government’s crackdown since the uprising began in March. Syria blames much of the unrest on “terrorists” whom it says have killed hundreds of security personnel.

Iran Threatens to Kill Americans if Generals Attacked Top commanders in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards threatened Tuesday to kill “dozens” of U.S. citizens should Washington kill any of its members. “ You also should not forget that American commanders have plenty of presence and travel in the region. If you kill any of us, we will kill dozens of you,” Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, chief of the Guard’s aerospace division, told Iran’s semi-official Fars News Agency on Tuesday as saying.

day, this time for alleged involvement in a series of bombings in France in the early 1980s. The terrorist attacks on two trains and a newspaper office in 1982 and 1983 killed 11 people and wounded at least 140. A verdict is expected in mid-December. Prosecutors uncovered what they say is evidence of his guilt in communist archives in Hungary and the former East Germany. Ramirez says he is innocent. The Jackal’s real name is Ilich Ramirez Sanchez. A pro-Palestinian terrorist of Venezuelan origin, he is currently serving a life sentence in France for shooting to death two French secret agents and a Lebanese informer in 1975. Ramirez Sanchez denied involvement, saying that the murders were orchestrated by the Israeli Mossad. Carlos Ramirez Sanchez joined the Popular Front for Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) in 1970, when recruiting officer Bassam Abu Sharif gave him the code name Carlos due to his South American roots. Newspapers dubbed him Carlos the Jackal after police found a copy of the thriller novel Day of the Jackal in one of his hideouts.

Relaxed Policy Allows Countless Immigrants into Britain Relaxed immigration policies allowed countless immigrants into Britain. British Home Secretary Theresa May admitted the mistake Monday. The relaxed immigration rules allowed people into the country without proper credentials. The head of Britain’s Border Force, Brody Clark, has been suspended over the incident. May testified before the House of Commons saying, “As a result of these unauthorized actions, we will never know how many people entered the country who should have been prevented from doing so.” The home secretary says she approved the initial pilot program to relax the rules for six weeks, but Clark approved the second six week period without proper authorization.


Soldiers to Get Free Year of University in Jerusalem Students in Jerusalem are to be “treated” to a free year of university, thanks to a law passed on its second and third reading in the Knesset Monday night. The law will apply to soldiers who have finished their IDF service and are starting their first year at one of the universities in the city.

The law was proposed by Deputy Minister Gila Gamliel, and will “open doors for soldiers to academic studies.”

Terrorists Fire on Kibbutz Gaza terrorists fired a rocket at civilians in the Sderot region on Tuesday night. The rocket followed two days of relative quiet in the area. An explosion was reported near a kibbutz in Israel’s south. The attack does not appear to have caused injuries.

Terrorist who Carried out Jerusalem Stabbing Attack Arrested Last week, Abad Elrahman Mahmud Alian Zayid, the terrorist who carried out the stabbing attack in Jerusalem’s Ramot neighborhood on October 22, was arrested in a joint Israel Security Agency-Israel Police-IDF operation. In the October stabbing attack, a 17-year-old teen from the Ramot neighborhood was severely injured. Zayid, born in 1991 in Beit-Iksa, near Ramot, and a student at the Abu-Dis University, confessed that his crime was of a nationalist background, and also repeated the details of the incident during an ISA investigation. The investigation is ongoing.

Soldiers’ Campaign: ‘Don’t Ransom Me Like Shalit’ The former IDF Chief Rabbi, Rav Avichai Ronsky, has signed the “Hosen” [Fortitude] Card that states that if he is taken captive by the enemy, he demands that the State refrain from releasing terrorists in order to set him free. The Hosen Card initiative was started last week Ra’ananim, a religious Zionist youth movement, which has put up stands nationwide and began signing up soldiers. Hundreds have already signed the card that says “I am certain that the government of Israel and the IDF will do everything possible to release me with courage and creativity” but not through deals involving the release of terrorists. Rav Rosnky said that in the relationship between a citizen and his country, the country takes precedence over the individual. “Freeing terrorists places civilians’ lives at risk,” he said. “The IDF’s deterrent force is greatly damaged by this kind of deal,” he explained, in a reference to the recent deal with Hamas for the freedom of Gilad Shalit. Major (res.) Yoni Setbon, who heads Ra’ananim, explained that the initiative is meant to counter media campaigns that encourage prisoner exchanges.

NOVEMBER 11, 2011 100,000 Attend Funeral of Rabbi Nosson Tzvi Finkel An estimated 100,000 people crowded the Har Hamenuchot cemetery in Jerusalem on Tuesday for the funeral of Rabbi Nosson Tzvi Finkel. The funeral procession began in the Beit Yisrael neighborhood. Rabbi Finkel, 68, passed away early Tuesday morning. He was the head of the famed Mir yeshiva. Signs posted at the yeshiva Tuesday reminded students to continue their Torah learning until the funeral began, according to the hareidi news outlet Kikar Hashabat.

Former Mossad Chief – Anti-Semitic? Former Mossad chief Ephraim Halevy’s characterization of hareidi-religious Jews as “a bigger existential threat to Israel than Iran and Ahmadinejad” constitutes anti-Semitic incitement, MKs accused Sunday. “The equation of the hareidi community, which can be identified by external appearance, with Ahmadinejad and worse, by someone who was once the head of the Mossad, is clearly incitement likely to lead to actual harm,” said MK Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism). Gafni called on Attorney General Yehudah Weinstein to investigate Halevy’s remarks. If Halevy’s statements had been “a slip of the tongue” he would not have complained, Gafni added, “but the statements were part of an agenda that he has repeated time after time.” Knesset speaker Reuven Rivlin shared Gafni’s concern over the potential for harm to arise from Halevy’s words. “There are hints of anti-Semitism in what he said… Halevy needs to know that a person who holds a government position must be careful with his words, because irresponsible statements on his part could play into the hands of the world’s biggest anti-Semites.” Halevy responded to criticism of his statements by accusing hareidim of “overreacting.” In his original remarks, Halevy’s example of “hareidi extremism” was the fact that boys and girls do not dance together in hareidi circles. Halevy is known for making controversial remarks. In recent years he has questioned the “two-state solution” and has called to negotiate with Hamas. Yishai: Add More Sephardic Judges to Courts Israel’s Interior Minister Eli Yishai said Sunday that the state had a “moral obligation” to appoint a judge of Middle Eastern Sephardic background to the High Court. Currently, there is one judge of Middle East-

NOVEMBER 11, 2011 ern background on the court, and it has generally been understood that one seat is “reserved” for a judge of that background. But with population and other changes in the state, the time had come to add a second judge to the makeup of the High Court. “Unfortunately when I bring this subject up I am accused of increasing ethnic tensions, but when others talk about these issues for other groups, that is acceptable and they are not attacked,” Yishai said. “This is needed in order to ensure that the public retains its trust in the court system. More such judges should be added to lower courts as well. It is time to being about more equality in this area,” he added.


Clinton: Deadlock in Peace Process is Intolerable U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, reiterated on Monday her country’s position that only negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority can lead to the establishment of a Palestinian state. In a talk she gave on the Arab Spring protests, Clinton said, “The deadlock in the Israeli-Arab conflict is another situation of a status quo in the Middle East that is not tolerable.”

McCain: Obama Remarks on Netanyahu Tell it All Senator John McCain, the Republican standardbearer in 2008, was highly critical of the exchange between French President

The Jewish Voice Nicolas Sarkozy and Barack Obama in which Sarkozy called Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu a liar. Most of the media concentrated on Sarkozy’s remark. However, the conversation, picked up by a hot microphone, had Obama responding to the French president’s slur: “You are sick of him, but I have to work with him every day.” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Obama’s remarks reflected the Obama administration’s attitude towards Israel.

ADL Survey: 15% of Americans are Anti-Semitic Anti-Semitism is growing in the United States, according to a nationwide survey released on Thursday. The survey, conducted by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), found that 15 percent of the population – nearly 35 million Americans – holds deeply anti-Semitic views. The survey found that 19 percent of Americans think that it is “probably true” that the statement that “Jews have too much control/influence on Wall Street” is correct. This marks a five percentage point increase since 2009. It was also found that 14 percent of respondents agreed with the statement that “Jews have too much power in the U.S. today,” an increase from 13 percent in 2009. As well, 15 percent that agreed Jews are “more willing to use shady practices,” and 16 percent agreed that Jewish “business people are so shrewd, others don’t have a chance.”


According to The New York Daily News, which presented the findings, the survey found that old stereotypes about Jews being pushy and controlling the economy are festering, especially among the least-educated Americans. These findings are consistent with the recent Occupy Wall Street protests which took on anti-Jewish characteristics. During one of the protests, a black American protester stated that “the people who run Wall Street are guilty of crimes against humanity,” adding that “almost all bankers on Wall Street are Jewish.” The ADL survey also found that some 31 percent of Americans believe that the Jews were responsible for crucifying Jesus. It also found that 30 percent think Jews are “more loyal to Israel than to America.” The New York Daily News noted that the survey found that the most-educated Americans were the least prejudiced and foreignborn Hispanics were more likely to hate Jews than U.S.-born Hispanics. As well, some 29 percent of the African-Americans surveyed expressed strong anti-Semitic views. The telephone survey was conducted among 1,754 adults in October.

Muslim Cabbies Come to the Rescue of Brooklyn Bagel Biz A good bagel – let alone a bialy worthy of the name – is hard enough to find nowadays. And it was set to get even harder in Brooklyn, as the borough’s oldest bagel bakery, Coney Island Bialys and Bagels, was teetering on the edge of being closed down


- and in fact was shuttered for a time in September. But in a last-minute reprieve, bagel lovers of all backgrounds will continue to enjoy the authentic – and kosher – taste of a real New York-style bialy, thanks to the intervention of two cab drivers, who are buying the store. By the way: the two owners of the quintessentially Jewish bread market are themselves not Jewish – but Pakistani Muslims. Zafaryab Ali and his business partner, Peerada Shah, were longtime fans of the store; Ali had worked at the store for over a decade during the 1990s, and was to hear that the recession had hurt the store badly enough that its owners, the Ross (originally Rosenzweig) family, had decided that the time had come to close down the store, established in 1920 by Polish Jewish immigrant Morris Rosenzweig. If there was an irony in a Muslim making kosher bialys and bagels – under rabbinical supervision, which the two are currently seeking – Shah doesn’t see it. “I don’t even think about it,” Shah told reporters, “I just look at this as a business opportunity.” Ali concurs: “I’m happy I can take care of this store, turn a profit and make customers happy,” he said. Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz wished the pair a “mazal tov,” and came around for some samples. Speaking to reporters, Markowitz called the cross-cultural event “an only in New York story” that “expresses the true spirit of this city.”

NOVEMBER 11, 2011 Madoff on the Small Screen Robert De Niro and his long-term partner, Jane Rosenthal, are in the early stages of production of a new HBO movie on Bernard Madoff. How about that! Not only is Mr. De Robert DeNiro Niro producing the made-for-TV movie with Ms. Rosenthal, but he’s reportedly playing Bernard Madoff in the film as well. John Burnham Schwartz, who wrote “Reservation Road,” is writing the screenplay. Apparently, HBO bought the rights to Laurie Sandell’s book in collaboration with Ruth Madoff and her son, Andrew Madoff: “Truth or Consequences: Life Inside the Madoff Family.” In addition, the movie on the Madoffs and the Ponzi scheme is also based on Diana Henriques’ book: “The Wizard of Lies: Bernie Madoff and the Death of Truth.” The airing date has not yet been released.

The Jewish Voice amidst a hero’s welcome, balloons and all, from his loving parents and sister. What did he say helped keep his hopes alive while in prison? Daydreaming of New York. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Ilan’s former boss, U.S. Rep. Gary Ackerman (D- Queens) helped to negotiate his release. He just got a new dog, which he’s enjoying at his home in Oakland Gardens, Queens along with his loving family. Although he didn’t have a chance to celebrate his birthday on time, he turned 28 in prison in Egypt, he sure is enjoying mom’s home cooking!

Silver Tells Bloomberg: “Occupiers” a Nuisance to Occupants Well, the wagons are circling around the Occupy Wall Street protesters in Zuccotti Park. Under pressure from their constituents under siege from the OWS crowd, New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who represent the district, are addressing health and safety concerns raised to them by local residents ranging from continuing loud noise such as drumming from the protesters to public urination, defecation, and a myriad of metal police barricades that are hurting local businesses like the Milk Street Café, which is on Wall Street near Zuccotti Park. So the Occupy Wall Street movement is supposed to be about getting jobs for hardworking Americans, right? Well then, how come their protests and the ensuing police barricades caused businesses like Milk Street Café, owned by Marc Epstein, to suffer? In fact, as a result of a 30 percent drop in business, he had to let go of 21 of his approximately 100 workers and is considering closing his café. How’s that for a stimulus plan! In fact, one of the laid-off workers, Shamil



on aspirin, Ambien, and blood pressure medication and went into bed fully-clothed, as did his wife Ruth, anticipating that they would die in bed and be found that way in the morning. Well, anyway, Mr. Madoff claims that he’s happier with life in prison, so maybe he’s not worse off after all.

Mel is Doing Sirius-ly Well Assemblyman Sheldon Silver

Cepeda, was interviewed by the New York Post, and was upset at the destructive role that the Occupy Wall Street are playing in her firing and in hurting business downtown. Marc Epstein, the café owner, says that since the protests started on September 17th about 6 weeks ago, and the metal police barricades went up, there is very little pedestrian traffic and commerce as usual in the Wall Street area.

Bernie confesses…again Turnabout is fair play, right? Well, it is according to Bernard Madoff. A few month ago, Mr. Madoff told New York Magazine that it would go against his nature to try to take his own life. According to the New York Post, now that his estranged wife Ruth claimed on Matt Lauer’s Today show that she and her husband tried to commit suicide after Mr. Madoff confessed to authorities his notorious Ponzi scheme in December of 2008, Mr. Madoff changed his original story that he never tried to take his life and backed up his estranged wife Ruth’s recent claim that they did try to commit suicide and called Today show’s Matt Lauer, before Ruth’s interview, to corroborate her story. Mr. Madoff told Matt Lauer that he overdosed on purpose

So far so good for Mel Karmazin, CEO of Sirius XM satellite radio. Even though subscription prices were raised 11 percent, he says it’s a modest increase and has heard very few customer complaints about it. He can also boast a strong 54 percent growth in profits for Sirius in the third quarter of the year despite falling short of their 400,000 new subscriber target for the third quarter with an increase of 334,000 subscribers. However, Sirius still predicts that they will increase subscriptions by 34 percent from last year by adding 1.6 million subscribers in 2011 and 440,000 in the fourth quarter of this year.

Gaddafi’s Jewish Pen Pal Who woulda thunk it? The New York Post reports that Louis Schlamowitz, an 81-year-old Jewish retired florist from Canarsie, Brooklyn, became Muammar Gaddafi’s pen pal since Gaddafi seized power in Libya in 1969 until he discovered Libya’s role in the bombing in 1988 of a Pan Am flight over Lockerbie, Scotland. Then he decided to write to Gaddafi again earlier this year when he heard about the civil war in Libya. In his letter, he advised Gaddafi to be good to his people or they will get rid of him. His letter to Gaddafi was returned to him unopened, but perhaps Gadhafi should have read Schlamowitz’ letter and heeded his advice. Schlamowitz chalks off Gaddafi’s killing to ‘politics.’

Study by AAA Finds: Costs Associated With Traffic Crashes 3x Greater Than Congestion Costs Traffic crashes cost U.S. motorists almost $300 billion per year The annual societal cost of traffic crashes is $299.5 billion, more than three times the $97.7 billion cost of congestion, according to a report released last week by AAA. AA’s “Crashes vs. Congestion – What’s the Cost to Society?” report highlights the overwhelming and far-reaching economic impacts traffic safety crashes have on our nation and encourages policymakers at all levels of government to ensure safety is a top priority. “The burdens associated with congestion are top of mind for many Americans as they travel to and from work each day,” said Brad Roeber, AAA Chicago president. “However, at $300 billion annually, crashes


cost our society more than three times the amount of congestion. This report further underscores the importance of a long-term, multi-year federal transportation bill that will provide the necessary and sustained investments that lead to better and safer roads for all Americans.” According to the study conducted for AAA by Cambridge Systematics, the overall cost of crashes ($299.5 billion) equates to an annual per person cost of $1,522, compared to $590 per person annually for

congestion ($97.7 billion overall). The cost of crashes are based on the Federal Highway Administration’s comprehensive costs for traffic fatalities and injuries that assign a dollar value to a variety of components, including medical and emergency services, lost earnings and household production, property damage, and lost quality of life, among other things. The report calculates the costs of crashes for the same metropolitan areas covered by the annual Urban Mobility Report con-

ducted by the Texas Transportation Institute. The results showed crash costs exceeded congestion in every metropolitan area studied, from very large to small. For very large urban areas (populations of more than three million), crash costs are nearly double those of congestion. Those costs rise to nearly six times congestion costs in small urban areas (populations less than 500,000) where motorists face less congested conditions. “Almost 33,000 people – 635 per week – die on U.S. roadways each year and that’s unacceptable,” said Roeber. “While the decline in traffic fatalities in recent years signifies a positive trend, our work is far from over. Continued progress will require active and focused leadership, improved communication and collaboration, and an investment in data collection and evaluation to make sure we’re addressing the nation’s most serious safety challenges.”

Study Identifies How Our Genes Affect Our Metabolism Research May Lead to Highly Targeted, Individualized Therapies In what is so far the largest investigation of its kind, researchers uncovered a wide range of new insights about common diseases and how they are affected by differences between two persons’ genes. The results from this study could lead to highly targeted, individualized therapies. ed by researchers from Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar and published in a recent edition of the journal Nature, the study provides details on the genetics behind many diseases, including cardiovascular and kidney disorders, diabetes, cancer, gout, thrombosis and Crohn’s disease, and elucidates the role that individual differences in metabolism play in these disorders. Disturbances in metabolism are at the root of a variety of human afflictions and complex diseases. Although many of the genes that contribute to these conditions have been identified since the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003, it is still not known how metabolic disorders related to these genetic aberrations disrupt cellular processes. One hundred years ago, Archibald Garrod, one of the fathers of modern biochemistry, realized that inborn errors in human metabolism are “merely extreme examples of variations of chemical behavior which are probably everywhere present in minor de-


grees” and that this “chemical individuality [confers] predisposition to and immunities from the various mishaps which are spoken of as diseases.” Ever since, identification of the genetic basis of human chemical individuality has been elusive. Now researchers addressed this challenge by using a new technology called metabolomics. They measured the levels of more than 250 biochemical compounds in over 60 metabolic pathways, including lipids, sugars, vitamins, amino acids and others in blood from over 2,800 individuals. They then combined this dataset with information on more than 600,000 genetic variants (SNPs) that were detected in the genes of each of the study participants. Most of the SNPs were located in genes known to encode proteins involved in the relevant metabolic pathways. Fifteen of the SNPs had previously been associated with metabolism-related conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, gout, diabetes, gastrointestinal diseases, cancer and adverse drug reactions. But the new

findings also uncovered a wealth of new associations that link the genetic makeup of a person to his or her biochemical capacities. This data is publicly available in an online database, accessible at

PAGE 33 Given the exceptional size of the dataset, the researchers prioritized the data to focus on 37 SNPs that were most strongly associated with metabolic traits, 23 of which had never been described before. The 37 SNPs had very large effects on the individuals’ metabolite levels and can be considered to constitute what the authors call the “genetic basis of human metabolic individuality.” First author Dr. Karsten Suhre, professor of physiology and biophysics and director of the Bioinformatics Core at Weill Cornell Medical College–Qatar, says, “These findings will enable researchers to identify new and potentially relevant metabolic processes and pathways. Two highly sophisticated biochemical measurement methods — genetics and metabolomics — applied to only two drops of blood can reveal deep insights into the genetic make-up of our metabolic capacities. In addition to providing functional insights into the genetic basis of metabolic traits and complex diseases, this information is a way to understand an individual’s uniqueness so as to develop highly targeted, personalized therapies and enable novel types of treatments or prevent adverse drug reactions.”

ANCESTRY.COM AND UNITED STATES HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM MAKE THOUSANDS OF RECORDS AVAILABLE ONLINE Information on Holocaust survivors and victims of Nazi persecution available online at no cost through efforts of World Memory Project United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and announced that material from four Museum collections containing information on more than 30,000 victims of Nazi persecution is now available online at and can be searched at no cost. The collections contain information on thousands of individuals including displaced Jewish orphans; Czech Jews deported to the Terezin concentration camp and camps in occupied Poland; and French victims of Nazi persecution. he collections are being made available through the World Memory Project, launched in May 2011. The project is recruiting the public to help build the world’s largest online resource on Jewish victims of the Holocaust and millions of non-Jews who were targeted for persecution by Nazi Germany and its collaborators, allowing victims’ families and survivors themselves to discover missing chapters of their history, learn the truth about the fate of their relatives and honor those who were lost. World Memory Project contributors are continuously keying information that will form new searchable databases of histori-


cal collections when complete. To date, more than 2,100 contributors from around the world have indexed more than 700,000 records. Anyone, anywhere can contribute to the project by simply typing information from historical records into the online database. “World Memory Project contributors are helping Holocaust survivors and their families learn the truth about what happened to loved ones,” says Lisa Yavnai, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum WMP project leader. “It is an incredible gift that anyone can give to those who survived the horrors of Nazi Germany. In a few months, the con-

The U.S Holocaust Memorial Museum

tributors’ efforts have resulted in more online searchable records than the Museum alone could have produced in many years.” The World Memory Project utilizes proprietary software and project management donated by, which hosts its own online archival project to transcribe his-

NEW BOOK BY RENOWNED VISIONARY AND EDUCATOR, CHAIM PERI, NOW AVAILABLE From the internationally-known visionary and educator, Chaim Peri, comes a new book filled with poignant stories of immigrant children traumatized by heartbreaking family situations but who receive a miraculous second chance at leading a wholesome and successful life. “Teenagers Educated The Village Way” inspires readers from the very first pages to view adolescence as “an hour of grace” and a unique opportunity to empower troubled young minds to follow their dreams. Peri’s book is a brilliant testament to the power of creating communities of meaning for children whose own self image holds little or no meaning at all. For information on Yemin Orde, visit, email, or call 202-237-0286. haim Peri is the visionary behind Yemin Orde Youth Village in Israel and Yemin Orde Educational Initiatives. In his book, Peri shares his own childhood experiences, which included stints in orphanages, as lying at the very root of his life’s work. “My own childhood begins during the tragic years of World War I and has a devastating absence at its center,” Peri said. “The deciphering of our childhood and teenage experiences is a central component of our inner lives no matter what stage of life we have reached.” Yemin Orde is home to some 500 at-risk immigrant children who have all suffered trauma in their lives: from isolation and neglect to abandonment and desolation. The children are from Ethiopia, the former Soviet Union, South America and other countries where daily survival is nothing short of a miracle. At Yemin Orde, the children receive


an excellent education, learn self-esteem, and embrace their cultural identities. Yemin Orde becomes a home for life – even as they graduate, the children know they can always return. The Initiatives program was launched to expand Yemin Orde’s success-

Parshat Vayera (Genesis 18:1-22:24): The Avraham Effect One of the more intriguing episodes in the parsha of this week is the story of the three visitors to the tent of Avraham and Sarah. The Torah first describes the three visitors as “anashim” – human beings. And that is how Avraham certainly saw them – as Bedouin Arabs whom he suspected of being idol worshippers who sanctified the dust on their feet. Therefore, he gently requests them to wash their feet before sitting down to eat their meal at his home. udaism, which always operates in reverse venerations to paganism, therefore bids us to wash our hands before we sit down at a meal to break bread. But in any event, it is clear from the text of the Torah that these visitors to Avraham


and Sarah are simply viewed as being three passing human strangers at the beginning of their visit. Suddenly, Avraham realizes that these three visitors are really G-d’s angels sent to him to reveal G-d’s plans and to fulfill His Divine mission.

The Torah now calls them “malachim” – angels. I have always felt that there was a deep subliminal message in this change of description of Avraham’s guests. Namely, that coming into the tent of Avraham and Sarah can by itself transform seemingly pagan Bedouin Arabs into heavenly angels. Such is the effect of Avraham in the world and such is the influence of the tent of Avraham and Sarah in their society. The Hittites will be moved to say: “You are a prince of G-d in our midst.” And so he was. The Jewish home was always the place of individual spiritual elevation and holy transformation. It was the factory that produced

holy and devoted people, conscious of their responsibilities to G-d and humankind. With its rituals and rhythms, with its silences and loving disciplines, with its peace and the serenity of the Sabbath and the Holy days, the Jewish home was able to transform and uplift people. I once had a tradesperson – a woman drapery designer – come to our home Friday early afternoon to give an estimate on draping our windows. Our home, due to the influence of my wife, was a place of serenity and calm on Friday afternoons as it Continued on page 39

Summary of Haftarah for Parshat Vayera (Kings II 4:1-37) Sometime around the year 3043 - 705 B.C.E., Elisha took over the mantle of prophecy from Eliyahu. Elisha served the Jewish people as their mentor and protector, and this week’s Haftorah relates two of the miraculous incidents that he performed. The first story is of Ovadya’s widow and the pitcher of oil that continued to pour until she had enough oil to pay off all her debts and make a decent living. By Rabbi Aron Tendler The second is the Shunamis who was unable to conceive children. After being

NEW TORAH CYCLE BRINGS WITH IT NEW PROGRAMS ON OUTORAH.ORG With the beginning of a new Torah cycle, the ever-growing collection of shiurim on the Orthodox Union’s Torah website, www., as well as, continues to increase with a variety of new programs that are now available. here are three series of lectures by the distinguished educator Rabbi Ari D. Kahn, the author of “Echoes of Eden: Sefer Bereshit,” newly published by OU Press. The series includes audio lectures on halacha (Jewish law), machshava (Jewish thought), and aggadah, the nonlegal portions of the Talmud. Rabbi Dr. Asher Meir, one of the Jewish world’s best-known lecturers and educators in the area of business ethics, presents two programs in text format, “The Jewish Ethicist” and “Meaning in Mitzvot.” The ethics program has already featured subjects as varied as giving notice and bearing a grudge. The mitzvot program features articles connecting mitzvot with events in the weekly Torah portion, as well as making them relevant in one’s daily life. Both programs draw heavily from Jewish sources, as they confront issues in modern life. Rabbi Yakov Nagen delves into spirituality with his video series “Life is a Blessing,” focusing on matters of spirituality in the weekly parsha. Rabbi Nagen is Rosh Kollel of Yeshivat Otniel, a hesder yeshiva in Israel (in which the students also serve in the IDF) in Hebron Hills. That is not all. With NCSY, the inter-


national youth program of the Orthodox Union, having expanded to Chile and Argentina, and with a large Jewish community in Mexico, OU Torah now includes “Perlas de la Tora” (“Pearls of the Torah”), weekly lectures in Spanish on the Torah portion and other aspects of Jewish observance, by Rabbi Israel Lashak, the Mexican-born Director of NCSY’s Dallas-based Southwest Region. Another recent addition to OU Torah is HaShoneh Halachos, in which two laws are explained each day by Rabbi Jack Abramowitz, OU Torah Content Editor, and emailed to a growing list of subscribers. On November 24, the two-year Nach Yomi cycle, drawing from the Books of the Prophets and the Writings, will begin anew, for the third time on OU Torah. “OU Torah, with its sections on parsha, kashrut (kosher), Mishna and Gemara, Nach, tefilla (prayer), Shabbat and holidays, Jewish thought, mitzvot and halacha now comprises dozens of programs in text, audio and video format.

blessed with a son, the child dies and Elisha performs the miracle of resurrecting the boy’s life. In both instances, basic human needs were satisfied through the righteous individuals trust in the Navi and in Hashem’s providence. The widow’s husband was the great Ovadya who risked his own life and fortune to protect 100 prophets from the murderous purge of Achav and Ezevel. The Shunamis and her husband were wealthy, G-d fearing people who generously provided for all who needed. Both women could have

expected that their basic needs for income and family be deservedly provided by G-d. The theme of Vayera is trusting Hashem beyond the limits of rational and assumed justice. As with Sarah and Avraham, the trust that Ovadya’s widow and the Shunamis had in Hashem was unrelated to their limited human expectations. They trusted Hashem to provide as He saw fit, without any strings attached. D’var Torah and haftarah summary courtesy of

3 Sunny States Remain Top Choices for Where Americans Would Like to Live California drops from the top choice for the first time since 2001, replaced by Hawaii Excluding their current state, if Americans had to say where they would most like to live, the top three mentions are states typically associated with sunshine and the beach: Hawaii (1), California (2) and Florida (3). These states have consistently been in the top 3 the last 8 times this question has been asked. However, this year marks the ďŹ rst time since 2001 that California has not been the top mention. hese are some of the results of The Harris Poll of 2,463 adults surveyed online between October 10 and 17, 2011 by Harris Interactive. Rounding out the top 5 this year is Texas (4) and Colorado (5). Texas saw a nice jump this year, up to 4 from 8 last year, while Colorado dropped from 4 last year, to 5 this year. The remaining 10 states on the list cover every geographic region of the country: In the Pacific Northwest Oregon (7) and Washington (9) are Top 10 mentions; The Southwest is represented with Arizona (8); Nevada (14) makes the Top 15 for the West; Montana represents the Midwest (13); New York does so for the Northeast (11); and, Virginia, Tennessee and South Carolina


all come through for the South (10, 12 and 15, respectively).

Favorite Cities In terms of cities Americans would most like to live in, the Top 15 mentions cover a wide range of geographical areas and climates this year as well. Unchanged since 1999, New York is the most frequently mentioned city that Americans would like to live in, followed by San Diego, which remains in the 2nd position, consistent with last year. The third top mention this year is Seattle, which seems to be steadily climbing, up from 4 last year and 5 the previous year. Similarly to the jump Texas made as a desirable state to live in this year (to 4 from 8 last year), its city of Dallas also made an impressive showing this year, coming in as the 4th most popular city. This is particularly notable because Dallas was not in the

NOVEMBER 11, 2011 Top 15 last year at all, and only at number 10 the prior year. The countless entertainment and culinary options may be what appeals to some about Las Vegas, which is the 5th top city mentioned this year, followed on the list by San Francisco (=6) and Boston (=6), Chicago (8), Honolulu (9) and Denver (10). The Top 15 this year are rounded out with Nashville (11), Orlando (12), Los Angeles and Portland (tied for 13) and then two southern cities—on opposite sides of the country—are tied for 15: Atlanta and Phoenix .

The Jewish Voice Newark, NJ.

So What? While sun-belt states have traditionally dominated the Favorite State list, this year with the inclusion of Washington, Oregon, Montana and New York in the Top 15, the list seems more diverse. And, looking at the Least Favorite City list, where 8 of the top 15 also appear on the most Favorite City list, it’s clear what appeals to some definitely does not appeal to all.

Methodology Least Favorite Cities While fantasizing about where you would most like to live can be fun, it can be equally fun to think about where you might least like to live. Thinking about these places can make a harsh Northeast winter or a sweltering Southern summer seem not as bad, depending on your geographic woes. Although New York has been the top favorite city for some time, it’s also an extremely unappealing place for many people and it comes in, similarly to last year, as the least favorite city to live in.

This Harris Poll was conducted online within the United States between October 10 and 17, 2011 among 2,463 adults (aged 18 and over). Figures for age, sex, race/ethnicity, education, region and household income were weighted where necessary to bring them into line with their actual proportions in the population. Propensity score weighting was also used to adjust for respondents’ propensity to be online. All sample surveys and polls, whether or not they use probability sampling, are subject to multiple sources of error which are most often not possible to quantify or estimate, including sampling error, coverage error, error associated with nonresponse, error associated with question wording and response options, and post-survey weighting and adjustments. Therefore, Harris Interactive avoids the words “margin of error” as they are misleading. All that can be calculated are different possible sampling errors with different probabilities for pure, unweighted, random samples with 100% response rates. These are only theoretical because no published polls come close to this ideal. PR NEWSWIRE

Faction Heads Press Netanyahu on Outposts Continued from page 6

“We urge you to ensure the mandate of the team will allow it to succeed, and to find solutions in relation to all outstanding issues,” wrote the MKs. The letter, initiated by National Union faction chairman, MK Uri Ariel, was also signed by heads of the parliamentary groups of the Likud, Israel Beiteinu, the Jewish Home, Shas, United Torah Judaism, and National Union. The letter comes on the same day Netanyahu told his Likud faction – which is

overwhelmingly against the destruction of threatened neighborhoods – they should abandon communities and neighborhoods with standing demolition orders against them in favor of party unity. Last week, Netanyahu drew fire when he sought to appoint former IDF Judge Advocate General Avichai Mandelbilt at the head of a committee to be tasked with reviewing land ownership for disputed parcels of land where structures face demolition. Mandelbilt, during his tenure, oversaw the execution of policies that restricted Jewish land ownership and facilitated demolition

“I feel privileged and honored to bring historical accuracy and facts to the many families out there today who may not have known, until now, what became of their family members. It was extremely important to me to key in these documents with the utmost care.” – Donna, United States “…It brought home to me the fact that each of these names had been a person who probably once reached out with their hands to others for help, and for many of them, that help never came… Ultimately, though, I took comfort in the idea that, while he might have been among those who were taken from the world through bigotry and hatred, at least I was helping in a little way to make sure he and others like him were not forgotten.” Kerri, United States About the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum A living memorial to the Holocaust, the

orders in Judea and Samaria. The policies, laid down by Mandelbilt’s patron, Defense Minister Ehud Barak, have been broadly criticized as both partisan and discriminatory. Also drawing fire was Netanyahu’s acquiescence to Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein’s demand that his proposed committee not be allowed to review communities where Israel’s High Court has already ordered demolitions to take place.

The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court’s ruling, which caused outrage in nationalist circles, ruled all disputed parcels of land in Judea and Samaria not registered as state land were ‘Arab land’ by default. The High Court also refused to review evidence of land-ownership pursuant to the parcels, leading critics to charge the Court was issuing an ideological ruling under the guise of law.

killed by the shots fired by Amir, which hit him in the back, but rather by an additional shot fired at him from the front when he was already in his vehicle. “There’s a big blood stain inside the car,” Verker said. “I got a very important document about it from a person who sent an e-mail after several years, when he understood that the blood stain could not have belonged to Rabin’s bodyguard [who was wounded in the shooting -ed.] but to another person who sat there and was murdered in the car [suggesting that it was Rabin’s murderer who was himself later shot and killed –ed.]. There was also a big blood stain in the back seat, where Rabin sat, because Rabin sat in the car.” Alex Peleg, a forensic expert, reinforced Verker’s claims and said, “There was an additional shot fired from the front that was not fired by Amir. Not in the chest, but on the left seven centimeters below. Who fired that shot? Yigal Amir couldn’t have fired it.

There was a second shooter. When I investigated these things and asked the forensic department to investigate the shooting range, they answered that a murder from ten years ago is not checked. A strange answer, considering we are speaking about a Prime Minister.” Verker said that he believes that in light of the evidence, the murder was a plot by the Israel Security Agency (ISA) and that Amir, in fact, had fired blanks. “I believe that Yigal Amir fired blanks because it was a plot by the ISA,” he said. “Why didn’t they shoot Amir? A man fires three shots and no one shoots him?” Verker said he had spoken with Rabin’s children as well with Yigal Amir’s brother, and that “they all know that the murder took place in the car, and it’s infuriating because they never solved the mystery of who the murderer is. The murderer was killed that same night. They buried him at 3:00 a.m. There’s a testimony of a gravedigger who took part in a hurried burial at 3:00 a.m.” ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS

IDF Foiled Attempt to Fire Long-Range Rocket Continued from page 6

The squad that was targeted had been using technology similar to that used by the terror squad that was involved in firing two Grad missiles into southern Israel three days earlier. Those missiles exploded in Ashdod and the community of Bnei Aish. Military sources have now revealed that the rocket the targeted squad was preparing to launch was a locally manufactured new rocket with a range of 80 kilometers.

Until now, Gaza terrorists have only fired rockets with a range that does not exceed 40 kilometers. Security officials could not determine whether the terrorists were planning to fire the rocket at Israel or whether it was it an experiment and the rocket was being fired towards the sea. IDF officials noted, however, that the foiled attack proves that the Islamic Jihad has the ability to reach ranges of 80 kilometers, thus putting central Israel in danger. ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS

made it difficult to secure the necessary equipment.

Fordo Uranium Enrichment Facility Iran disclosed the existence of another uranium enrichment facility at the Fordo site near the Shi’ite holy city of Qom in 2009. The plant is located under a mountain. In September 2011, the International Atomic Energy Agency said Iran had installed a set, or “cascade” of centrifuges at the site. It is

not clear how many of the machines are operational.

Bushehr Nuclear Plant Iran connected its first nuclear power plant to the national electricity grid in the southern city of Bushehr in September after years of delay. Iran said the Russian-built plant was supplying 60 megawatts of power, a small part of its 1,000 megawatt capacity. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the country needs 20 times more energy than Bushehr was generating. Russia began construction of the plant in

Tehran Research Reactor Iran has been operating a nuclear research reactor in Tehran with low-enriched uranium supplied by Argentina since 1993. Iranian officials have said they need to supply the reactor with higher-enriched uranium because the Argentine fuel reserves were nearly depleted. Iran says the reactor is used for medical purposes and other research.

pretty much was at all times. The woman remarked to me as she left: “I have never felt such a feeling of serenity as I do in your home.” I explained to her that the transformation was due to the upcoming arrival of the Sabbath. The Sabbath is serenity and the only way to welcome it is with serenity itself. The Jewish home was the direct descendant of the tent of Avraham and Sarah. It geneti-

cally inherited the transcendent ability to sanctify, enhance and transform human beings. It provides the setting and milieu for human beings to work on becoming angels. The privilege to be visited by angels can be experienced by all of us. We welcome them to our home every Friday night at the onset of the Sabbath and we can have them accompany us all week long as well, if we only will it. Such is the legacy of Avraham and Sarah to us, their children.
