Yasher kochah . . .

. . . to my cyber-friend, Alyssa Lappen, who has carved out a very interesting and influential niche in defense of Israel: writing book reviews at Amazon.com. She also monitors reviews and advises Amazon editors of those who abuse the review process by using it as a soapbox for anti-Israel, anti-Zionist, anti-Jewish propaganda. Read her review of Fateful Triangle: The United States, Israel, and the Palestinians by Noam Chomsky and Edward Said.

Also at Amazon.com is Alyssa's review of Final Report: Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building Bombing April 19, 1995. A very talented and dedicated writer, Alyssa contributed to The Middle East Forum, co-authoring an article about Columbia University's Radical Middle East Faculty, which appeared in FrontPage Magazine as well. Our continuing gratitude for your scholarship, Alyssa. Keep up the good work.
