A moment at the Mall: When "Jewish unity" was more than a slogan

By Josh Pollack

Some in attendance may have felt the need to show Israelis that they are not alone. Others, may have wanted to show the same thing to themselves. Togetherness was the order of the day, even if this meant overlooking a broad range of political and religious differences.

Mideast war exposes
'ugly Europeans'

By Mark Steyn

What have we learned from this last extraordinary month? Not much about the Middle East, but quite a lot about Europe.

What happens when Palestinian civilians strap on plastic explosives and head for Israeli pizza parlours? Europe says Israeli checkpoints for Palestinians are "humiliating." Palestinian Red Crescent ambulances permit themselves to be used as transportation for bombs and explosives -- and Europe attacks Israel for refusing them free movement. Documents are found signed by Arafat authorizing funding for a suicide bombing on a young girl's bat mitzvah, and members of the Nobel committee publicly call for taking back the 1994 Peace Prize -- from Shimon Peres. Synagogues are firebombed in France, Belgium and Finland, and the EU deplores the wanton destruction of property -- in Ramallah.

Our Vichy gamble
By Michael Barone

Sometimes in war it is good policy to treat enemies like friends. You may lack the resources to take them on directly. You may want to delay taking them on, or you may want to indulge the fiction that the enemy is neutral for a time. But such a policy is morally troublesome and can be difficult to maintain.

One example of treating an enemy like a friend was Franklin Roosevelt's relationship with Vichy France in the early days of World War II. Another example is George W. Bush's policy of sending Colin Powell to the Middle East.
