    Dr. Om Prakash Sudrania: I have been often baffled with the words “Ethics”, “Human Rights”, “Rights of Minorities” and such similar foggy expressions; as also the word “Religion”. I have also seen these words being used selectively by the groups with some underlying vested interests to express and hypothesise their own brand of “Human Rights” maliciously. I saw a similar reason in a report recently and I could not resist my temptation to analyse it. I just saw a Weekly Digest by the Asian Human Rights Commission of Week 27 which enlists a report on India under the caption: Military...

    Democratic leader Howard Dean blasted the GOP's lack of diversity in a speech to Jewish communal leaders. Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, also appeared to criticize the practice of including an invocation of Jesus at the end of pre-game prayers at scholastic sporting events. Dean made the remark Sunday during a decidedly partisan speech at the opening plenary of the United Jewish Communities' General Assembly in Nashville. He painted the Republican Party as religiously and racially exclusive. His speech to the 3,500 Jewish communal leaders in attendance followed an address by the University of Tennessee's basketball coach, Bruce...

    The American Jewish community has been demonstrating wall-to-wall support for Israel as it fights on two fronts. Major Jewish organizations have backed Israel's actions and are considering a community-wide emergency fund-raising effort. The United Jewish Communities (UJC), which represents 55 Jewish federations and 400 independent Jewish communities across North America, has already provided $1 million via the Jewish Agency that will be used to send children from communities near the northern border to youth villages in the central region. The UJC is considering embarking on a special fund-raising campaign, similar to the Israel Emergency Campaign that raised more than $360m....

    The UJC's "Homosexual Mission" to Israel Sam SilverChair, Toward Tradition I. Do you know where your Federation contribution is going?If you are Jewish, in all likelihood you were recently solicited by your local Federation for a charitable contribution. Most Jews are aware that the Federations provide “life-saving and life-enhancing humanitarian assistance to those in need,” and are a major focus of Jewish philanthropy in local communities; but you might have missed the part about the Federation sponsoring a homosexual Mission to Israel this summer so that American homosexuals can join activists from around the world in a confrontational and...

    Our Newspapers Fail Us Editorial - Israel News Agency There is no public relations or public affairs without a carrier. The most established carrier is called a newspaper. And in Israel the only newspapers which enjoy abundant readership and wealth are the Hebrew dailies – Yediot, Maariv and Haaertz. As for the English newspapers here in Israel – one is a mere translation of the Hebrew edition and the other is fifty percent wire service copy. Yes – there are some brilliant writers on these papers but their voices become deluded when you have a lack of proper leadership integrated...
