OP-ED BY: By Stephen M. Flatow, JNS Return to Rewarding Terrorism?

OP-ED BY: Jonathan S. Tobin JNS: Outrage Over the Murder of George Floyd Doesn’t Justify Intersectional Myths

The outrageous murder in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a 46-year-old African-American man, by local police is a crime that cannot be tolerated or excused.

OP-ED Aruz Sheva: Will Israel find a way to keep terror-supporters out of the Knesset?
