  • National Post The male crisis that’s ruining our boys and no one cares about Wednesday June 13th, 2018
    Father’s Day approaches and with it the opportunity to consider the importance of fathers to their children.It is difficult to overstate both the positive effects of growing up with a father and the negative effects of father absence, especially for boys. These myriad benefits and perils are on record, undisputed and easily accessible. But in this gynocentric era, what is good or bad f...
  • The Post Millennial Is Motherhood Mainly Motivation for Misery? The New York Times seems to Think So Friday June 8th, 2018
    Last month, the New York Times marked the occasion of Mothers Day with “Stories of Motherhood, Told by Six Women.” Women readers had been solicited to share their experiences of becoming a mother, and 1300 submissions came in, from which the editors chose six. All were thematically united in dissatisfaction or suffering, as the titles make clear: “The World was Hers. Then She Became a Mom”; “Wh...
  • CJNEWS Sarcasm is the Jewish sword Friday June 8th, 2018
    Two American giants exited the literary world in May: Tom Wolfe and Philip Roth. Apart from their brilliance in mapping America’s social and cultural landscape, they could not have been more different in temperament and style. Roth’s writing was intensely personal, mordant and Jewishly obsessed; Wolfe’s was detached, exuberant and cosmopolitan. It is not by coincidence that Wolfe was a gentile ...
  • National Post A celebrated figure today could well be the condemned sinner of tomorrow Tuesday June 5th, 2018
    It was a happy day for the Winnipeg Pakistani community at the recent official opening of a park named for Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan in 1948. The ceremonies were presided over by Pakistan’s High Commissioner to Canada, Tariq Azim Khan, in company with MPs Terry Duguid and Iqra Khalid, who congratulated everyone present on this milestone.Thirty years ago, such an even...
  • The Post Millennial In its Obsession with Silencing Tommy Robinson, a Pusillanimous Establishment Abandons Treasured British Ideal of ‘Fair Play’ Thursday May 31st, 2018
    May 25 will be marked as a day of infamy for British justice. On that day, political activist Tommy Robinson was arrested outside a Leeds courthouse, where, as a citizen journalist employing normal journalistic strategies, he was livestreaming commentary to Facebook, as several Muslim defendants involved in infamous grooming gangs arrived for their trial proceeding.Robinson was doing nothing il...
  • National Post A new documentary gives ammunition to the sugar-is-deadly warriors Wednesday May 30th, 2018
    For decades, the low-fat diet has been to health and weight as Marxism to political governance: a catastrophic failure. People are fatter and sicker than ever. Why? Because lowering fat intake results in compensatory carb intake. Especially sugar. And sugar makes you fat and unhealthy. But, like Marxists, lipophobes will never admit their first premises are wrong, even when confronted by inc...
  • The Post Millennial Do Toronto’s Forest Hill Collegiate Institute and the Toronto District School Board have a ‘Jewish Problem’? The Optics Are not Good Friday May 25th, 2018
    I grew up in Forest Hill Village, which was, and is, a posh Toronto neighbourhood. My sisters and I, therefore, spent our formative years in the Forest Hill public school system: first South Prep (“Preparatory”), then West Prep, then South Prep Middle School and ending with five years at Forest Hill Collegiate Institute (FHCI). I have very fond memories of FHCI, where I felt ...
  • National Post Hamas will always win the PR war, even as Israel wins the military victories Tuesday May 22nd, 2018
    In his May 16 column, Terry Glavin takes Israel to task for the deaths and injuries of Gazan Palestinians sustained in the border clashes he concedes that Hamas orchestrated.Yes, Glavin understands that “Hamas exists for the sole purpose of doing violence to Israel and to Israelis.” Yes, clearly “what (Hamas) failed to accomplish with its rockets and tunnels, it is now prep...
  • National Post Israelis hold their fire as long as they can. Hamas writes cheques after mass suicides Friday May 18th, 2018
    There’s an old French proverb which, translated, reads: “This animal is very bad; when you attack it, it defends itself.” There is only one “animal” — politically speaking — that inspires this curious strain of logic, but it does so over and over again. Israel. Alone of the nations, Israel draws condemnation for doing what every other nation in the w...
  • The Post Millennial When Trans fanaticism joins with Political Arrogance, Freedom of Expression is the Victim Tuesday May 15th, 2018
    Politics makes strange bedfellows, a truism I am presently experiencing in real time as I find myself on social media supporting TERFs – Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists – in their battle against Trans ideologues regarding the charged question(s): Who/What is a woman? The lines of that battle are pretty simply drawn. Trans ideologues uphold one entirely subjective cri...
  • National Post The embassy move only angers the usual suspects. Even the Arab leaders have bigger problems now Tuesday May 15th, 2018
    So Israel’s U.S. embassy is where it belongs: Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital. It took its sweet time getting there, but, thanks to the last person on Earth most Americans want to credit for any foreign-affairs success, Donald Trump, there it is. Mazel tov.The usual suspects are bruiting their dismay and/or outrage, convinced that the embassy gambit will act as a provocation ...
  • The Post Millennial MP Christine Moore Reluctantly Provides NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh With  a Teaching Moment in the Use of the Word “Survivor” Thursday May 10th, 2018
    In a man-bites-dog version of the usual #MeToo pattern of male aggressor, female victim, NDP MP for Abitibi-Kamiskimingue Christine Moore has been accused of serious sexual misconduct. Unusual in itself, the story is particularly noteworthy because Moore has established herself as a righteous warrior in this normally dog-bites-man domain. On to the story momentarily. First, the set-up th...
  • National Post We’ve forgotten how bad Communism was. Identity politics reminds us Tuesday May 8th, 2018
    Ten days ago I heard Bill Browder speak at a packed fundraising event. Browder’s bestselling 2015 memoir, Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder and One Man’s Fight for Justice, is a riveting chronicle of Browder’s investment adventures — first spectacularly successful, then harrowing — in Vladimir Putin’s Russia.Browder spoke eloquently, notably...
  • National Post Another cultural institution succumbs to Jordan Peterson hysteria Tuesday May 1st, 2018
    This Friday marks the 175th consecutive weekly “Free Raif Badawi” vigil in Sherbrooke, Quebec, where the imprisoned Saudi blogger’s family found asylum and have lived as permanent residents for the past three years. Badawi is still serving a seven-year prison sentence for “insulting Islam through electronic channels.”On April 26, to celebrate its 70th anniversar...
  • The Post Millennial Status of Women Canada: Paints a Misleading Portrait of Muslim Women Tuesday May 1st, 2018
    At what point do you know that your country is, on the whole, “inclusive”? Would there have to be, say, zero hate incidents for three years before you could say you live in a tolerant country? But that’s never going to happen except in some hardline utopian’s dreams. So now we have to settle for what is an “acceptable” hate crime statistic – ...
  • The Post Millennial Don’t Call Toronto’s Van Massacre “Misogynistic” and Here’s Why Wednesday April 25th, 2018
    At first, because the “van” is so often lone-wolf jihadism’s preferred agent for carnage, many Canadians assumed the Monday’s sidewalk massacre in Toronto’s Yonge-Finch corridor was an act of terrorism. Within 24 hours, enough details had been released about the suspect, 25-year old Alek Minassian, to dispel that idea. This was clearly a disturbed indivi...
  • National Post The agony of an attack without explanation, and the pain of chaos Tuesday April 24th, 2018
    The method is only too familiar. The motive of the man who rammed a van into dozens of pedestrians in Toronto on Monday is so far unclear, although it is for the moment tentatively linked to sexual grievances.In 1993, when North Americans were still cocooned in their bubble of geopolitical security, a 1,200-pound bomb in a Ryder van parked underground at New York’s World Trade Center e...
  • The Post Millennial UK Labourites must exorcize the metastasizing anti-Semitic cancer Jeremy Corbyn has nurtured Thursday April 19th, 2018
    With cruel irony, the 70th anniversary of the State of Israel, celebrated April 19, is sharing media space with the news that Jewish MPs within Jeremy Corbyn’s UK Labour Party have testified to the demonstrable anti-Semitism that runs rife in that party under his leadership. In parliament on Tuesday, three hours of debate were given over to the problem of anti-Semiti...
  • CJNEWS Liba Augenfeld – the survivor who brought her love of Yiddish with her Wednesday April 18th, 2018
    In the upwardly mobile Jewish enclave of Toronto where I was raised, Yiddish was the language of my parents’ generation. It was reserved for Borscht-belt humour and hiding certain subjects from children. It was both prosaic and nostalgic: Hebrew was the future; nobody I knew mourned the passing of Yiddish. But it hadn’t passed everywhere. At Montreal’s Jewish Public Library (JPL), where I was d...
  • National Post A gift for Israel’s birthday: a legal summary of its clear legitimacy Tuesday April 17th, 2018
    Israel’s 70th birthday will be celebrated Thursday. Note the passive voice. I would have preferred “the world will join in celebration of Israel’s 70th birthday,” but immediately saw its impossibility.The reality is more people will be cursing than congratulating Israel on this occasion. Cursing, rhetorically speaking, comes easy. Israel haters rely on emotive, trigge...
