For far too long, guns have been a third-rail issue not only for politicians, but for celebrities, too. It is time we consider that artists are people, too, and they often share a common sense of personal responsibility through their work to inspire others. Let's stand behind cultural icons to do just that.

Obama Won, So Did Netanyahu

One could hardly blame liberal Jews for wanting to celebrate AIPAC's defeat or for some Israeli's to lament what they called "Netanyahu's strategic blunder". Both views, however, are naïve and shortsighted. On several levels, Netanyahu won.

Here we have a claim that Iran will not only make and use nuclear weapons, but will use them against the United States. I'm just going to let the extremeness of that claim sink in.

The reality is that there is no better Iran deal, and those calling for one never offer a viable plan on how to get there. In fact, the real alternative is war, which will come at tremendous cost.

Be Jewish and Stay Quiet

Shahar Azani

As a Jew, Schumer is not allowed to "break ranks" and make up his own mind based on his clear thinking. In doing so, he is clearly an "Israel-firster" and a "Netanyahu marionette".

Chuck Schumer's Position on Iran Is Reckless

Nathan Gonzalez | Posted 08.11.2015 | World
Nathan Gonzalez

Opponents of the Iran deal have been unable to produce a viable alternative. That is because there really are no alternatives left. Should the Iran deal collapse under the weight of spoilers like Schumer, Iran will get a nuclear weapon. And once Iran achieves and announces that capability to the world, no expert will be able to foresee the consequences.

Netanyahu and His Marionettes

David Bromwich | Posted 08.12.2015 | Politics
David Bromwich

Chuck Schumer has often said, with an artless self-love, that his name in Hebrew, "shomer," means "guardian"; and he takes pride in the fact because he thinks of himself as the appointed guardian of Israel's interests in the US. How bizarre and unprecedented this is! Think of any other nation in the world. Imagine an Italian-American named Frank Consiglieri assuring his listeners that his name means "advocate" in Italian and he is supremely vigilant for the interests of Italy as a lawmaker in the US. Schumer voted for the Iraq war on a rationale similar to the one he now urges as the path of reason and good sense with Iran. He may or may not recognize that he is only assisting the Likud and the neoconservatives with part three of the Middle East "clean break" strategy: Iraq, Syria, Iran.
