    When actor Luke Perry, best known for portraying TV heartthrob Dylan McKay on the ’90s teen drama “Beverly Hills, 90210,” died Monday after suffering a massive stroke, there were the usual public displays of sadness when a public figure leaves us. But his passing was especially painful for people of a certain age. As one fan expressed on Twitter: “I’m in mourning for Generation X today, for real.” Perry died at just 52 years old. Which makes him the first Gen X icon to succumb to natural causes. That’s an unsettling reality check to those of us who identify as...

    US State Department reported to say Israelis would ‘twist details’ to undermine negotiations European officials have confirmed that the US State Department cautioned them against providing Israel with sensitive information on the current round of negotiations with Iran over its alleged nuclear weapons program, The New York Times reported Tuesday. The account came amid vehement denials by the White House and State Department that they had stopped updating Jerusalem on the progress in the talks, even though Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hinted Monday that Israel was indeed being kept in the dark. The report quoted an unnamed European official involved...

    WASHINGTON -- The United States has proposed to the Israeli government a security plan for new borders with a future Palestinian state that games out an exhaustive list of possible threats, US Secretary of State John Kerry told the Brookings Institution's Saban Forum on Saturday. Overseen by US retired general John Allen, the plan "guarantees" that the Jordan River will remain secure for years after any deal is signed, Kerry said. "We approach this challenge believing that Israel has to be strong to make peace," Kerry said, "but that peace will make Israel stronger."

    As the Obama presidency and the Democratic Party continue their journey into the Slough of Despond, it’s interesting to watch Obama’ supporters try to process the unfolding events. Some blame it on a failure to communicate. E.J. Dionne, Jr., for example, ascribes the Democrats’ problems to the fact that Obama “has chosen not to engage the nation in an extended dialogue about what holds all his achievements together.” Joe Klein offers this explanation: “If Obama is not reelected, it will be because he comes across as disdaining

    The following is my own transcription of one of the most powerful lectures that I have ever heard. I am delighted to see that it is now readily available in both video of the lecture and as a transcript in PDF format. Since I personally don't care for PDF if a good HTML source is available - and since this is such a staggeringly powerful lecture - I thought I should make it available in a more usable transcript format. Every religious believer, and every non-believer, should read this powerful presentation of the absurdity of life without God. The Absurdity...

    Yossi Ben-Aharon, former head of Prime Minister Yitzchak Shamir's Bureau, says that the Likud MKs should be worried not about the disengagement referendum, but rather about deposing Ariel Sharon. Ben-Aharon told Arutz-7's Shimon Cohen that Sharon's disengagement plan is "more dangerous than the Oslo Accords," because it is merely his first stage in his plan to establish a Palestinian state. Ben-Aharon said that like the late Yitzchak Rabin before him, he views a Palestinian state as something that Israel cannot agree to or accept. Sharon and his aide Dov Weisglass "used all sorts of tricks and deception to implement this...
