    There is no question there was far too much name-calling—and worse—during this election cycle. While we will, almost by definition, continue to consider those among our colleagues who support an opposing candidate to be wrong, we should not consider them the embodiment of evil. I, who opposed President Obama because I consider him dangerous to virtually everything I hold dear, understand that his rabbinic supporters see things differently than I do. I do not consider Obama’s supporters to be “evil.” I think they are wrong. I hope my fears will be proven groundless, but, like most observers in Israel (some very public; others much more quiet), I sadly do not think this will be the case. My opposition to Obama’s policies and programs and my efforts to defeat them will not abate. Given freedom of speech in this great democracy, I expect Obama’s supporters among my colleagues to endorse my right to pursue these efforts, just as I endorse their right to support him. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

Sara Netanyahu's house of horrors

People who have the misfortune to work in the Prime Minister’s Residence live in a milieu of terror in its classic sense: a place in which fear and dread are imposed by means of violence, force and threats. This has now been established by a court ruling.
