Dennis Prager is born in Brooklyn, New York, where he will be raised in a Jewish family. After majoring in Middle Eastern Studies and History, Prager will go on to become a popular syndicated columnist promoting conservative and reactionary political viewpoints.

The primary theme of all of his writings will be that Judaism and Christianity are the only systems which provide morality and civilization; as such, they are the only barriers to the horrors of Islam, secularism, or anything else he fears.

Dennis Prager will write:

"The collapse of Christianity in Europe led to the horrors of Nazism and Communism. And to the moral confusions of the present — such as the moral equation of the free United States with the totalitarian Soviet Union, or of life-loving Israel with its death-loving enemies."

This is a lie. Christianity didn't collapse in Europe, though it certainly had trouble handling the rapid changes that occurred during the early 20th century.

The truth is that Christianity in Germany was strong enough to actively support Hitler and his Nazi agenda. In fact, it would have been much more difficult for Hitler to accomplish what he did if it weren't for the active participation of millions of German Christians.

Slightly more interesting is this:

"With a few noble exceptions, preoccupation with the afterlife has led to denigration of life. The Islamic terrorists and the cultures that support them are only the most recent examples."

This is the same person who will also write about the importance of believers in God also believing in a heaven where good people are rewarded and a hell were bad people are punished. Neither Christianity nor Judaism are any less "preoccupied" with the afterlife than is Islam.

Dennis Prager's biography will proclaim that he is "one of the three most interesting minds in American Jewish Life." This doesn't bode well for American Judaism.
