When I was solidly engaged in not watching Obama’s SOTU speech, I thought of the antidote: Winston Churchill. I have long cringed when anyone refers to Obama as a great orator. To me he seems like a terrible one: flat, repetitive delivery; devoid of content (that is, when…

This is a small win, but a win is a win. We need a lot more such legal challenges to anti-Israel boycott groups, who  are propagandists and have no compunctions about lying and making up accusations in the worst tradition of Pallywood. Whether it’s hummus, coffee cafes, or academic scholars, there is nothing Israeli…
