Ancient and Medieval Walls Only Worked if They Were Backed by Lethal Force. Is That Donald Trump's Plan? Historically, walls alone have been ineffective and could be breached by crude technologies. Against 21st century technologies the medieval type wall sought by Donald Trump is flat out silly. Walls that have appeared effective did so because they were backed by a powerful military prepared to use lethal force. It will be sad day if America unleashes lethal force against caravans migrants seeking asylum from violence

Hanukkah vs. Christmas: Does It Have to Be a Contest? Hanukkah and Christmas are much different celebrations--Hanukkah for a military victory that restored the practice Judaism, and Christmas for the birth of Jesus, who Christians believe is the Messiah. Since the Hanukkah festival is not mandated in the Torah, secular Jews wonder if it should be celebrated at all. Nevertheless, they worry that no celebration might encourage their children to be drawn to Christmas traditions.

Why Christian Anti-Semites Are Ignorant of Their Own Faith Anti-Semites are ignorant of the common foundation of Judaism and Christianity. Otherwise they would know that Jesus was a dedicated practicing Jew and that the synagogue was his spiritual home; thus, an attack on a synagogue is also an attack on Jesus.

A Better Way for Athletes to Protest That Will Bring Cheers, Not Smears There is a more effective way for athletes to protest oppression of African Americans and other assaults on democracy under the Trump administration--a way that would defuse the charge of anti-Americanism by embracing "my America" of social justice and democracy and rejecting "their America" which is tearing down the principles established by the founders of our republic that have made America great.

Politicians, Your Prayers for Gun Victims Are Being Answered But You Are Not Listening: "Get Rid of the God-Damned Guns" The gun lovers' answer to gun violence is "Leave it to God." Why aren't thoughts and prayers working? Or, maybe they are but ears are deaf to the message: "You have the God-given power of choice. Choose to get rid of the God-damned guns."
