Re: “Is Antisemitism Rising to the Threat Level?

Francis, lets have a multi-religious state because that worked so well in Lebanon.

I'm sure eliminating the Jewish state will result in Arab/Muslim nirvana as currently illustrated by ISIS.

It's wrong to have a theocracy only if it's Jewish, right, because there are no other theocracies in the Arab world, right? I mean as an American Jew I have every right to go to, say Saudi Arabia, and practice my religion, not!

You surely must know that the creation of the State of Israel was based on much more than the activity of Irgun and that the UN created and sanctioned Israel as a state/nation. Also, that Israel is a democracy with constitutional guarantees for all its citizens and, however imperfect Israel is, it is a far sight better and freer than most of its neighbors. When I went to Israel some years ago, I was able to visit all the major religions' religious sites. If I had visited Jerusalem under prior Jordanian rule, that would not have been possible.

Finally, Justice Brandeis did a heckuva lobbying job on President Truman from the grave he occupied since 1941.

In all seriousness, it would do much of the Arab world good to recognize Israel as that would go a long way to creation of a separate Palestinian state as well as Arab/Israeli cooperation against their common adversaries, ISIS and Iran.

Re: “Guest Opinion

I take it the "racially exclusive nation-state" wasn't Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Syria, or any of a number of other Muslim nations, since Jews aren't generally allowed in those countries, Americans often aren't welcome, and women travel to them at their own risk. Why do you slam Israel, the only Mideast nation that offers constitutional guarantees to all the citizens within its borders and freedom of religion for all three major religions and what does that have to do at all with your commentary?

As to the gist of your article, if the confinement conditions are as you describe, they should be improved. However, we cannot open the doors of this country to every disadvantaged person in the world for if we did that we would cease to be the United States of America and we would become the places from where the immigrants hail. For those that come here, we must vet them before we just let them blend into our population. Amazing as it may seem to you, there are people who do not meet our criteria for legal immigration or for asylum. We have immigration laws and they should be enforced. If we just open the doors, literally billions would come and we cannot sustain that. There are sad and horrible stories all over this world but just letting anyone and everyone cross our borders and come into our house is not the answer.

Re: “Media Watch

Green Valley station KGVY can be heard on AM and it also is basically an oldies type format with music from the 50s, 60s and 70s. Live DJs during the daylight hours. But, also, bravo to the return of Alan Michaels, even if only for a few hours on the weekend. He has been missed by a lot of people, myself included.

Re: “Arizona is Changing the Drugs Used in Executions

Actually, it worked because Wood died during the execution.

Re: “We Hope The New Spongebob Movie is Good

Actually, Spongebob lives in a pineapple under the sea. Spongebob to me is of the same ilk as Bullwinkle and Rocky and some other "kids" cartoons with the double layered humor and message, one on the kids' level and another for the adults.
