2020 Democratic Presidential Hopefuls: No Longer Friends of Israel
By Robert Golomb
Senators Kirsten Gillibrand (NYS), Cory Booker (New Jersey) and Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) – all three currently viewed as viable and all but certain contenders for the 2020 Democratic Presidential nomination- might well have experienced a political epiphany currently unfavorable to the state of Israeli when they attended the 2012 Democratic National Convention held from September 4-6 that year in Charlotte, North Carolina. There, they were first hand witnesses to a controversy regarding Israel and the Palestinians that engulfed the convention’s 5554 delegates. (Warren, who was first elected to the Senate in the general election two months later, however, was present, but not yet a Senator at the time.)

A Day to love those who Labor
By Frederick R. Bedell Jr.
Glen Oaks Village: Labor Day is upon us and it is time to be thankful for how far we have come. It is also a time to look back and think of all the fathers and mothers who worked hard long hours and who fought for decent wages and hours so they could better provide for their families.
My grandfather — as told to me by my father — worked hard long hours in the late 1890s and early 1900s and earned about $2 a day. He was a Civil War veteran. Things were so bad that my father was taken out of school in third grade at the age of 9 and had to go to work.
Truly we have come a long way due to those that paved the way to a better life for many of us today. So, this Labor Day, let’s say a prayer of thankfulness to how far we have come.
