    Sarajevo, 06.24.2017: How can Israel ever have peace with her Muslim neighbors when experience shows that in any instance in which a non-Muslim state is bordering on a Muslim state, the likelihood of war is high — because Muslim aggression cannot be contained by agreements? Israel, Armenia, Serbia, Greece, Ethiopia all have learned the truth the hard way. Whoever believes in peace with Muslim neighbors has another thing coming for him. In the Balkans, there are these Muslim majority mini-states and provinces from the scrapheap of failed states of former Yugoslavia that are swarming the crowded neighborhood. And this is...

    Should the United States pay Palestinian terrorists? For the overwhelming majority of Americans and Israelis this is a rhetorical question. The position of the American people was made clear – yet again – last week when US President Donald Trump’s senior envoys Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt met with Palestinian Authority chairman and PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas and repeated Trump’s demand that the PA cut off the payments. Not only did Abbas reject their demand, he reportedly accused the presidential envoys of working as Israeli agents. Abbas’s treatment of Kushner and Greenblatt was in line with his refusal to even...

    Authorities in Hamburg said on Tuesday that the city had asked a group of some 220 Berlin police officers stationed in the city ahead of upcoming G20 summit to return home immediately. A representative for Berlin's police force later confirmed witness accounts that the officers had engaged in a weekend of revelry, including public sex acts, excessive drunkenness and misuse of firearms.

    In his memoir Hillbilly Elegy, J.D. Vance recalled his upbringing in Middletown, Ohio, explaining the psyche of communities neglected by the “Obama economy” as jobs were lost to the effects of globalization. The election of Donald Trump shed light on these communities of disenfranchised voters of Middle America. As globalization moved jobs overseas, industrial manufacturing communities in the U.S. fell on hard times. Blue-collar factory jobs in places like Macomb County, Michigan; Youngstown, Ohio; and South Bend, Indiana gave way to drug use, joblessness and despair. We are now faced with the question of how to help these communities going...

    The end stages of socialism in Venezuela are forcing citizens to do anything they can to obtain food for themselves and their families, including risking their lives.

    South African police have used stun grenades, rubber bullets and water cannon to try to disperse anti-immigration protesters in the capital, Pretoria, and keep them from foreign nationals who had gathered to express alarm about recent attacks. A police official said 136 people had been arrested in the past 24 hours. Resentment against foreign nationals has sometimes turned deadly amid accusations that they take jobs from locals in a country where unemployment is more than 25%. Others are blamed for drug-dealing and other crimes. In 2015, anti-immigrant riots in and around the city of Durban left at least six people...

    Appearing on today’s Morning Joe, law professor Jonathan Turley noted that Chief Justice John Roberts teamed with Justice Anthony Kennedy to devise an exception to the Court’s ruling of yesterday that permitted President Trump’s travel ban to remain in place. Under the exception, the ban does not apply to foreign nationals with a “bona fide” relationship with a person or entity in the United States. Turley said that as of late, Roberts has been “swimming a lot in the middle of the pool,” has become very Anthony “Kennedy-like,” and would become the new swing vote should Kennedy retire.
