    The Jewish community has been hit by a wave of anti-Semitic cyber attacks that have targeted Jewish organizations and endangered the personal and financial information of their donors and employees, according to a warning delivered this week. Websites operated by top Jewish community organizations across the country have been “hacked and defaced” in growing numbers by groups with both anti-Semitic and criminal agendas, according to the alert sent by the Secure Community Network (SCN), an affiliate of the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA). The uptick in cyber attacks is particularly challenging for the Jewish community, which is a ripe...

Eventually McCain got to the floor, and sure enough, he handed out Democrat talking points left and right, including a variation on Barack Obama's "I won" insistence that "elections have consequences," so good little Republicans should play ball with ObamaCare. He also spent a bizarre amount of time railing against Cruz for daring to say (in the course of over 20 hours of...

    Obama’s love of TV is in keeping with childhood. By his own admission, Obama watched an enormous amount of television while growing up with his TV-loving grandfather in Hawaii. According to Obama’s memoir, he watched TV – cartoons, reruns, then sitcoms – pretty much from the moment he came home until the moment he went to bed at night. His grandfather was a big fan of Johnny Carson, and even after Obama went off to Occidental College, he continued in his grandfather’s footsteps. He would often get together with friends to watch Johnny Carson’s opening monologue on The Tonight Show....

"Our aim is to be responsive," Rhodes said, underlining that the new assistance would have "direct military purposes."

The report lists five physical assaults and 38 instances of anti-Semitic vandalism. The report’s authors wrote that the low level of anti-Semitic attacks correlates with an increase in anti-Muslim vitriol connected to religious tensions in the country’s South.

Like many other Americans, I assumed that those in the Embassies were prepared for this contingency given their locations and the symbolic date. I was saddened to hear of Ambassador Chris Stevens’s death as well as the “other Americans,” and my sadness was deepened when I learned that two of the Americans killed in the attack along with the Ambassador were former Navy SEALs, one of whom was a friend and...

    The Turkish army attacked several targets in Syria on Wednesday evening, officials in Ankara confirmed. The incident, the first of its kind since the uprising against Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad began in March of 2011, came several hours after a mortar shell fired from Syria exploded on Turkish territory and killed five people. “Our military forces, operating in the border area, responded this evening to the criminal attack that took place earlier today,” said a statement from the office of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. “We used artillery fire against the targets and a hit was detected,” said the...

    Democrats, including Senator John Kerry, a possible Secretary of State if Barack Obama wins a second term, have joined Republicans in demanding answers as to why terrorists were able to murder the U.S. ambassador to Libya. The new Democratic demands as it emerged that no threat assessment was conducted before Chris Stevens, the late U.S. Ambassador, and his team began 'taking up residence' at the Benghazi compound. A source told Fox news that the security lapses were a 'total failure' and there was no proper security equipment installed in the compound's buildings apart from a small number of video

    White House says 'no intelligence’ could have been acted on to prevent attacksBy Jonathan Easley - 09/14/12 12:40 PM ET The White House on Friday said a report stating the president failed to act on knowledge of a potential attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya was “absolutely wrong.” White House press secretary Jay Carney said there was “no actionable intelligence” ahead of the attack that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. “There was no intelligence that could in any way have been acted on to prevent these attacks,” he said. “The report was false.” Embassies...

    The Obama administration is flatly denying a blaring British newspaper report that the U.S. diplomats in Libya were killed as a result of a “continuing security breach,” and that “credible information” about possible attacks had been ignored. A U.S. official told POLITICO: “There's no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated.” Read more: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0912/81198.html#ixzz26P9XMG6i

    This is a potential blockbuster given that our ambassador and his three staffers, 2 of which were former Navy SEALs, were all murdered. Drudge has the siren up for this and is headlining it as “America ‘was warned of embassy attack but did nothing”. It’s just one paragraph in a piece from The Independent called “Revealed: inside story of US envoy’s assassination”:

    David Axelrod, President Obama’s top strategist, believes that the reaction to Vice President Joe Biden’s comment that Romney will “put y’all back in chains” if he is elected. “Enough phony outrage from Team Mitt, while they pour millions into ads that blatantly, brazenly lie about POTUS record on welfare to work,” Axelrod tweeted. Biden, recalling that Romney wants to “unchain Wall Street,” predicted that such a policy would “put y’all back in chains” during an event in Danville, Va., which has a 48 percent African-American population. The Romney campaign condemned the comment. “After weeks of slanderous and baseless accusations leveled...

    Team Obama likes to provide entertainment so let's join in the fun. Everyone in the United States who is not comatose knows by now of the Super Obama PAC (SOP) Priorities USA Action campaign advertisement claiming that Bain Capital shut down a steel plant and that one woman died of cancer. Both indeed happened. Not only that, but many other women, men, and even children also died of cancer. Why have they gone so easy on Governor Romney? Are they chickens, preparing to be served at Chick-Fil-A? [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMkmxJ3P9Tw?feature=player_detailpage] Here is a link. The head of the SOP defended the...

    Jews in the Beit Hanina neighborhood of Jerusalem, a hotbed of angry Arabs in one of the areas claimed by the Palestinian Authority, are attacked almost daily by stones and firebombs. Police are passive, according to Jewish residents. Hezi Hovav told Arutz Sheva there have been dozens of Arab attacks, and he has filed complaints without any results. In one recent attack, a firebomb (Molotov cocktail) burned one room of a house. Another firebomb was hurled last Thursday at a car. Hovav also reported that an Arabs used tear gas on a young Jewish man.
