In a fascinating look at the current state of terrorism in Israel and the U.S., Ambassador Dennis Ross tested the audience on details of past administrations. His talk was insightful and gave us a sense of his vast expertise in peace negotiations as reflected in his new book, Doomed to Succeed.

A Message From Rabbi David Baron on the Paris Shootings
Our hearts go out to the families of those grieving. As Americans we recall the pain and shock of 9/11 and as people who share the values of western civilization, we will not be cowed by Islamic terrorists who shout Allah hu Akbar, (praise to God) while coolly gunning down innocents. Beheadings, rapes and stabbings are their methods designed to strike fear. We remain steadfast as citizens demanding stronger measures by our leaders to maintain safety by voiding the passports and visas of anyone who travels to designated terrorist zones. We must also more aggressively take the war to Daesh safe havens. Bin Laden "hid out" in Pakistan for years. Wherever terrorists are in hiding they must be denied refuge and civilians or governments who look away must be put on notice or the Paris atrocity will surely fade into yesterday's news.
