LISBON, PORTUGAL — May 12, 2018 — Israeli Singer Netta Barzilai captivates Eurovision to win with #MeToo inspired lyrics of her songtrack “Toy”. Infused with the refrain, “I am not your toy, you stupid boy”, the lyrics evoke a summation of the #MeToo issues women have expressed in the growing global movement against gender inequality, sexual abuse, and harassment. “Toy” …

Seeing trees blossom and grow fruit in the Land of Israel as I leave my house every late winter and early spring morning makes me realize another way in which I am grateful to be able to live and raise my family here. When we built our house, it was important not only to plant trees, which Jews have done …

Reading about current events and the renewed Gaza demonstration incited by Hamas, I’m reminded of the well known story recounting the wisdom of King Solomon (1 Kings 3:16-28) judging to whom a baby belonged that two women each claimed as theirs. The women came to Solomon to adjudicate their dispute. One of the woman’s babies had died, and each claimed …

It’s like the beginning of a bad Polish joke: a group of Polish politicians go into a room to debate their role in the Holocaust…. The problem is there’s no funny punch line, except to underscore all the other funny punch lines of many more Polish jokes before. The bill that was approved by the Polish lower house of parliament …

Ed Koch Commentary Did We Not All Say, “Never Again?” BY EDWARD I. KOCH

eHezi Archives 3 Comments

 Readers of my commentaries know that I usually send one a week. Last week, however, I sent two because the Helen Thomas incident occurred after I had finished my regular weekly article, and I thought the Thomas affair required a response from me. I called for her to step down, which she did.

Statement on Helen Thomas BY EDWARD I. KOCH

eHezi Archives 6 Comments

 Goodbye, Ms. Thomas.  You Have Disgraced Yourself. Helen Thomas, 89, who is of Lebanese descent, claims to be a professional journalist.  As such, she is subject to professional standards.  Her statement that Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” and go back to "Poland and Germany" is clear evidence that she is no longer in control of her emotions …
