The roots of failure in the “War on terror”

July 24th, 2013 · No Comments

– Robert Light The guilty, the responsible and the innocent It is hard to believe but 4 decades ago, my 7th grade English teacher may have put her finger on the roots to why we are having such difficulties in winning the “war on terror”.  She kept on telling us that “words are important”…that words […]

Why are there no Muslim “Thomas Jeffersons”

September 13th, 2012 · No Comments

– Robert Light Many people have puzzled as to why, with the advent of “The Arab Spring”, has there not appeared any equivalent to America’s founding fathers such as Thomas Jefferson, a bold, clear thinker who could verbalize, define and motivate his fellow citizens to rally around a cause that will bring the entire society […]

The Muslim definition of “humiliation”

September 12th, 2012 · No Comments

– Robert Light We hear the word “humiliation” spoken repeatedly from the adherents of Islam. Lately, we’ve been horrified by what transpired after a Koran was inadvertently burned by U.S. Armed Forces in Afghanistan…and then just today we see that the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and 3 others were murdered during riots spurred by the […]

Post Goldstone

May 1st, 2011 · No Comments

– Robert Light Historians will most undoubtedly take note of Justice Goldstone’s  attempt, as he said, to… begin a new era of evenhandedness at the U.N. Human Rights Council, whose history of bias against Israel cannot be doubted. Throwing off the principle of “innocent until proven guilty”, Judge Goldstone ignored Israel’s storied history of going […]

J’Accuse: Who’s being “irrational” here?

October 22nd, 2010 · No Comments

– Robert Light There has been much “junk” spewed about what Juan Williams expressed on the Bill Oreilly’s show. The greatest “junk” is the concept that he was expressing “irrational thoughts” or is a “bigot“…with the implicit statement being made that “rational people” wouldn’t worry about Muslims on airplanes. I put forth that Juan Williams […]

Behind the phrase “disproportional response”

January 6th, 2009 · No Comments

About this time during any Israeli attempt to deal with the terrorist hordes which surround her, with the punctual precision of the precession of the earth about the sun bringing spring flowers, world leaders trot out the old tired indictment that Israel is guilty of using “disproportionate force”.

I must admit that when someone I know trots out the indictment of disproportionate force, my first impulse is to say something to the effect: “That’s the stupidest comment I’ve ever heard”.

Lately, however, I’ve started to actually listen to those who complain that Israel is using “disproportionate force”.

Exchanging Barbarian Terrorists for Dead Soldiers

July 16th, 2008 · No Comments

– Robert Light Today I witnessed something that has shaken me deeply. Israel has found, somewhere in it’s moral code, the impetus to exchange barbarian terrorists for the bodies of two soldiers. What has shaken me so deeply is that this act doesn’t even begin to pass the “smell test”. Now, I admit that I […]
