Colors: Cyan Color

Last week, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proved once again that she has the ability to define terms for the entire Democratic Party by labeling the detention centers where asylum seekers are awaiting trial with the term “concentration camps.” Instead of agreeing that the border detention facilities should be addressed in terms of improvement, and those facilities in no way mirror the atrocities of the Holocaust, a large swath of the political left rushed to Ocasio-Cortez’s defense. Many of those defenders pulled out their Jewish credentials when saying that the “concentration camp” label is correct. These Jewish defenders are willing to minimize the atrocities of the Holocaust for the opportunity to appease a freshman congresswoman and attack the Trump administration.

After years of allegations of anti-Semitism, the UK Labour Party has become the subject of a formal investigation by the Equality and Human Rights Commission, a UK watchdog group. While the BBC claims that the party has been plagued by these allegations since mid-2016, the roots of the issue are deeper than that. An analysis of the infestation of anti-Semitism in Labour shows dangerous comparisons to the anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party. If the Democrats ignore it, as they have been doing so far, they too will be tarred with this reputation for a generation.

I voted for Melinda Katz to be the next Queens District Attorney. Prior to the endorsement of self-described “queer Latina” Tiffany Caban by The New York Times, the term-limited Queens Borough President was not my first, nor second choice in the seven-person contest for the borough’s top prosecutor. But as the leftist picked up in momentum, there was no longer any other viable choice when it came to representing my community.

Last week, Andrew Cuomo, New York Governor for the entirety of the 2010s, stated that he will be seeking a fourth term as Governor of New York in 2022.  In the 2018 election cycle, New York has essentially become a one-party state, and the radical left agenda that has been plaguing this state will continue under Cuomo’s leadership.  Here are ten reasons for New Yorkers to mobilize in the next election cycle to finally kick Cuomo out of office.

Usually by the time we hear about an anti-Israel professor at some university, it’s too late; he already has tenure, or he’s chairman of his department, or he’s so deeply entrenched in other ways that there’s simply no way to prevent him from turning young minds against Israel for decade after decade.

Today, Sunday, as I write this, is the 28th day of Iyar. It is a rich historical day for many reasons. Firstly, it is the day on which Yehoshua led Israel into our first battle against Amaleik. Further, in Tanach, the 28th day of Iyar marks the day on which the Prophet Samuel, Shmuel HaNavi, departed our world. In more recent history, the 28th day of Iyar is remembered for the day on which HaRav Avraham Yitzchak HaKohen Kook, the first Chief Rabbi of Eretz Yisrael, made aliyah to then-Palestine, under British rule, and unified Jerusalem under Hebrew sovereignty, despite the very challenging situation on the ground.
