comment Why is the information that Malchi-Tzedek was a priest not written earlier in the posuk?
Are long chains of adjectives common at all common in Biblical Hebrew?

comment What is the correct vocalization for Megillas Ester 3:6
At mechon-mamre.org/c/ct/c3303.htm#6 there’s a patach; IIRC they follow the Allepo Codex where possible.

comment Who was Shaul ben HaCanaanie?
BTW, Rav S.R. Hirsh suggest Saul was the son of Dinah by Shechem, and was adopted by Shimon.

comment Why is Midrash not in the Torah
To rephrase: Why is Midrash within Torah shebeal peh rather than Torah shebichsav? I'm not sure this question is answerable, except perhaps to question it premise.

revised Must I ceremonially dispatch a non-kosher animal meant for Gentile consumption?
Clarified wording; initial phrasing allowed for the misreading that the inspection was part of the example.

comment Why is Moshiach a “fundamental belief” (iqar)?
@SethJ, note the (very similar) answers I've received; they both address “why?” and “in what sense?”.

comment Why is Moshiach a “fundamental belief” (iqar)?
@SethJ, I suspect the two are intertwined. If you can answer one without the other, I may accept that as well; but if your answer to one implies (but does not make explicit) the answer to the other, I will request a clarifying edit.

comment May an employer dismiss an employee to pressure him in a non–work-related matter
It actually assumes one cannot, at least not without suitable notice. This assumption may not be well-founded, I admit.

comment Death penalty convict status
Do we, in general, extend the rule “it must be destroyed, so it has the status as if it already is” to people? This question is more likely to have been discussed in the context of whether a condemned man can effect kiddushin.

comment Why is Moshiach a “fundamental belief” (iqar)?
Let me see if I understand correctly: The core of the 12th iqar (you explain) is that Gᴏᴅ has a plan for the world, and that history will eventually unfold according to that plan. The phrasing of the iqar just happens to be in terms of the specific goal Gᴏᴅ is aiming the world to. Is that a fair summation of your answer?

Thank you, Yishai; the point you make in your most recent comment does address my question nicely. Any chance you could edit your answer to make this point more clearly there?
