Here are two questions journalists should ask every politician and pundit who is pushing for a military strike against Iran. 1) What have you learned from the Iraq War? 2) What should America do after Iran strikes back?

Iran is a brutal theocracy whose people deserve far better. But it's not the aggressor in the current conflict with US. The American government is.

In the past, many American Jews feared and resented the ultra-Orthodox. So why are they now swooning for the TV show Shtisel?

Although the conventions of American exceptionalism made it difficult, it's essential that Democrats state the truth about the current standoff with Iran. Tehran, for all its sins, is not the aggressor. America is.

I’ve done this my whole adult life. As a young single mom my mother came from Alabama to New York during the great migration. She worked long hours as a maid to feed my older sister. I’m reminded of that fact every time I set foot in a hotel room.

An entire industry of “pro-Israelism” built on the commodification of the Holocaust and antiSemitism used not only to justify inhumane Israeli actions but also as a diversion from other horrifying abuses.

hey + , who use Jewish suffering to justify the abuse of today's immigrants. We're told 36 times in Torah to remember the stranger because we were strangers in Egypt. We have an ethical tradition. Try learning about it before you speak in our name

Hi Seth, historian of Jews in 20th-Century Europe here. Nice to meet you. I don’t need a hug. I need for our country to dismantle our growing system of concentration camps. Historical comparisons are never exact by their nature. This does not preclude us from learning from them.

My grandpa’s entire family was murdered in the Holocaust. I’m 100% comfortable with and anyone else referring to the current situation as concentration camps. The Holocaust didn’t come out of nowhere—it was a slow build, like now. People who understand history know this.

What's happening at the border is an abject moral disaster. Both our tradition and our history should compel the whole Jewish community to speak out and act up vehemently in defense of the freedom and dignity of all immigrants and asylum seekers.

So and others professing outrage about this story: could I persuade you to come out in favor of *never* charging a 16-year-old as an adult in the criminal justice system?
