  • 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...

  • 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...
  • The Post Millennial Only a Country like Canada Could Produce a Guy (so filled with Envy) like Jesse Brown Monday April 9th, 2018
    1 The trope “Tall Poppy Syndrome” refers to the impulse in some countries, Canada amongst them, to cut down to size any cultural peer who achieves uncommonly high status and international success. It is a particularly pronounced phenomenon amongst left-leaning tribes in academia and the punditocracy. Canadian psychologist and academic Jordan B. Peterson presently reigns as t...
  • National Post This spring, the fight to protect free speech in Canada continues Tuesday April 3rd, 2018

  • The Post Millennial When a Man Saves a Woman: Manliness asserts itself in a French Supermarket Monday April 2nd, 2018

  • CJNEWS Canada, a natural home for French Jews Friday March 16th, 2018
    In January, an incident took place – or, rather, didn’t take place – in Toronto, which came to be known as #hijabhoax on social media: a young Muslim girl had alleged that an Asian man attacked her hijab with scissors, while she was en route to school. Within a day, the allegation was exposed as a fabrication. In fact, apart from the Quebec City mosque massacre that was carried out by one deran...

  • National Post There’s no safe space on campus to debate bathroom politics Tuesday March 6th, 2018

She takes a live-and-let-live approach in gender matters.But Trent has instituted a policy of gender-neutral washrooms, and Brown balks at sharing intimate space with members of the biologically opposite sex.

  • National Post Collapse of basic fact-checking helps feed the fake-news narrative Wednesday February 21st, 2018
    Fake news is a big problem. Increasingly, serious citizens look to mainstream media for responsible reportage. When media betrays the public’s trust, it’s scary. And the media does fall short, sadly, both in matters large, which arouse public ire, and in matters that are only apparently small, and don’t. Not by publishing purposefully fake news, but by publishing “new...

Section 7.4(1) of 225’s Prohibition of Discrimination Code state...
  • CJNEWS Progressive Jews should respect the opinions of others Tuesday February 13th, 2018

By “principle...
