    Opinion | These Days, We Jews Have To Call Each Other Out - Because No One Else Will

    Nearly forty-one years ago, a letter sorter for the U.S. Postal Service was arrested. He'd shot and killed six people, and wounded nine others in New York City. Among those upset by the arrest in 1977 were Jews, because the perpetrator was one of their own.

    Gulf Arab states rebuke Israel, but alliances inch closer

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Arab states resoundingly condemned the killing of more than 50 Palestinians in this week's Gaza protests, just as they have after previous Israeli violence going back decades — but behind the scenes fears over Iran have divided Arab leaders, with some willing to quietly reach out to Israel.
