  • National Post How a television show might help to bring peace to the Middle East Tuesday April 23rd, 2019
    For riveting entertainment, Israeli dramas rule. Several of them deal with the paradoxical realities of life in a flourishing, prosperous society where Jews, both secular and ultra-Orthodox, co-exist in (occasionally uneasy) peace with Israeli Arabs, but one that is shadowed by a siege mentality, with eyes and ears constantly alert to threats — or reports — of terrorism.Most Isra...
  • The Post Millennial We need shelters for male survivors of abuse Tuesday April 23rd, 2019
  • National Post Anti-Semitic ‘blood libels’ get poster treatment at Toronto-area school Tuesday April 16th, 2019
    As part of a recent week-long “social justice” program, pro-Palestinian students at Stephen Lewis Secondary School in the Toronto area’s Peel District mounted a banner in a school hallway, reading, “If animal testing is NOT OKAY … Then why is human testing OKAY?” The banner was also displayed on social media.The cryptic message refers to two widely circul...
  • The Post Millennial J.K. Rowling has lost her magic touch by pandering to progressives Friday April 12th, 2019
    In 2007,  Harry Potter series creator J. K. Rowling made waves when she revealed that Albus Dumbledore, the much-beloved headmaster of Hogwarts Academy of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and mentor to Harry Potter, was gay. Normally an author builds his or her characters on the page, leaving out nothing of special importance the reader must know to appreciate that character’s worth and motivations. So...
  • The Post Millennial Bill 21 is not the problem critics think it is Saturday April 6th, 2019
    Bill 21, “An act respecting the laicity of the state,” is ramping up for passage in Quebec. It will impose complete neutrality with regard to religion-signalling on the province’s public servants in areas such as elementary and high school education, the courts and law enforcement. Anyone presently wearing a visible symbol of their faith – notably the (visible) cross, the kippa and the hijab – ...
  • National Post What the anglo media misses about Quebec’s religious law Tuesday April 2nd, 2019
  • The Post Millennial Islamophobia, Anti-Semitism, and the problem of compelled speech Thursday March 28th, 2019
    One of my favourite Seinfeld episodes had Kramer joining an AIDS walk. But he refuses to “wear the ribbon.” People keep urging him to take it, and he keeps politely refusing. They become more importunate. He won’t budge. Finally, they get ugly and turn on him with menace: “Who doesn’t want to wear the ribbon?” one walker yells accusingly, as others press in on him.The scene is, of course, playe...
  • National Post When pit bull defenders attack Tuesday March 26th, 2019
    “Politics is downstream from culture,” Andrew Breitbart famously said. Rather less famously, but persistently, this columnist has always maintained that dog politics (which arouses more fervour than human politics) is downstream from human culture. Canine advocacy is permeated with the exact same tropes we hear from social justice warriors: “victims,” “equality,...
  • The Post Millennial Justin Trudeau is an actor, not a prime minister Monday March 11th, 2019
    Justin Trudeau’s “contrition” session with the press turned out to be a nothingburger. He did not apologize. He would only cop to an “erosion of trust” between his guy, Gerald Butts, and Jody Wilson-Raybould, implying that Canadians should be blaming Mr. Erosion, not him. He allowed as how “there is always room for improvement,” the kind of thing one sees written on one’s children’s report card...
  • National Post Congratulations, women, on being eligible for the draft! Tuesday March 5th, 2019
    On June 30, 1982, “STOP ERA” campaigners in the United States celebrated the expiration of the Equal Rights Amendment’s constitutional ratification, finally killing it 10 years after its 1972 passage in Congress.Their sticking point was that the ERA’s ratification would have forced women into registration for the military draft, to which they were strongly opposed. In...
  • National Post Left-wing attacks are forcing us to hold our law conference in secret Tuesday February 26th, 2019
    The SNC-Lavalin scandal has Canadians fixated on justice and the rule of law.The timing could not be better for a charity called Canadians for the Rule of Law (CFTRL), which is hosting a full-day “National Teach-in” in Toronto on March 17, entitled, “The New Taboo: Respect for the Rule of Law in Canada.” It was planned long before the present political brouhaha, and isn’t c...
  • National Post Another fine event the left wants killed Tuesday February 26th, 2019
    The SNC-Lavalin scandal has Canadians fixated on justice and the rule of law.The timing could not be better for a charity called Canadians for the Rule of Law (CFTRL), which is hosting a full-day “National Teach-in” in Toronto on March 17, entitled, “The New Taboo: Respect for the Rule of Law in Canada.” It was planned long before the present political brouhaha, and isn’t c...
  • CJNEWS Kay: A binge-worthy look at haredi life Tuesday February 26th, 2019
    In the past, on social occasions, it could be awkward when people ran out of topics for conversation, especially if one’s interlocutor was not bookish, thus preventing discussion about the latest good read. This is no longer the case. One only has to ask: “What are you enjoying on Netflix these days?” and the floodgates open. The supply of high-end, intelligent entertainment that Netflix (et al...
  • The Post Millennial Canadian sports “experts” embrace misogynist practices to please trans activists­ Monday February 25th, 2019
    Months ago, I tweeted that sports would be “where the rubber hits the road” on deference to trans ideology, because affirmation in sport of biological males who identify as women cannot co-exist in harmony with a level playing field for women. That burning smell? Rubber is hitting the road—hard. The latest incident in women’s medal erasure comes from Connecticut, where two transwomen sprinters ...
  • National Post Revisiting the many massive failures of Parkland, one year later Wednesday February 20th, 2019
    Last week, mourners and supporters commemorated the first anniversary of a school massacre, especially horrific even by American standards. On Feb. 14, 2018, Nikolas Cruz, a former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., wielding an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, murdered 14 students and three staff members during 11 minutes of unchecked havoc.Florida was quick to ena...
  • The Post Millennial Trans activists hate these two powerful women Monday February 18th, 2019
    Today, Reader, I bring you a tale of two young women—one Canadian, one American. Both are as smart as the proverbial whips and, more important, heroically resistant to extraordinary pressure by trans activists to disappear them from public life.Their common “crime” is insisting on the right of women to be acknowledged as a unique phylum in the human biological kingdom, with lesbians as a unique...
  • National Post The euthanasia slippery slope is here Tuesday February 12th, 2019
    Last week marked the four-year anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling that validated Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID). At the time, many euthanasiasts confidently predicted that there would be no “slippery slope” toward abuses. Since the procedure was being justified on the basis of self-determination, “consent,” it was strenuously affirmed, would be de rigeur.As A...
  • The Post Millennial Trump, Northam, infanticide, blackface, and the fury of Democratic women Thursday February 7th, 2019
    If you watched Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday evening, your eye would have been drawn to the cadre of Democratic congresswomen all dressed in white as a kind of upscale, sedentary version of the Women’s March, signifying their support of women and their #resistance to Donald Trump. All that was missing were the pussy hats.To me, it seemed kind of a sophomoric, ironically “Stepford W...
  • National Post A joke is all in the delivery (do you hear me, son?) Tuesday February 5th, 2019
    I finally got around to watching The Marvellous Mrs Maizel on Amazon Prime. I love it.I love Miriam “Midge” Maizel, whose trajectory from dutiful Jewish 1950s housewife to struggling, then successful standup comedian constitutes the main story arc. I identify with her and her era. My mother was also obsessed with clothes. I too wore pointy bras and flared skirts. And I too was pr...
  • CJNEWS Kay: The cesspool of anti-Semitism on the left Thursday January 31st, 2019
    Bernie Farber devoted his latest column to concerns that a few Jews may have voted for Faith Goldy in Toronto’s recent mayoral election. Goldy is the former reporter for the Rebel Media, whose sympathies for the white supremacists at the August 2017 Charlottesville, Va., rally annihilated her journalism career. Some Goldy-supporting Jews may have voted for her because she is anti-Muslim, just a...
