    Legitimizes and rewards Mahmoud Abbas' hate-education and incitement - which must be uprooted as a prerequisite to real, durable peace--and therefore indirectly fuels Palestinian terrorism Secretary of State John Kerry’s November 24, 2015 visit to Jerusalem confirmed his determination to reinvent “the energetic, youthful and forward looking Middle East” in accordance with his own worldview, irrespective of Middle East reality. Kerry recycled well-intentioned, but failed, assessments and tactics, further eroding the US posture of deterrence and US power projection among pro-US Arab countries. On October 28, 2015, Secretary John Kerry presented his vision of US policy in the Middle East,...

Kerry made the call from Abu Dhabi, the first leg of his current Mideast tour which will bring him to Israel and the West Bank on Tuesday. He told reporters before contacting Schwartz’s parents that there was no justification for Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis. “Look at Ezra Schwartz, who got shot, and another young life cut short,” Kerry told reporters in Abu Dhabi, according to...

    It seems that the War with ISIS entered warp speed this week. From the attacks in Paris, to police raids and foiled plots across the world, the West learned one harsh fact: we are at war and ISIS must be destroyed. At this moment, Belgium is on high alert for an attack and France warns of a possible chemical or biological strike by ISIS. Yet, with all these incidents taking place, all of the threats and the dead and maimed and Paris burning, the Obama administration continues to march to the sound of political correctness.

    Secretary of State John Kerry believes that al Qaeda’s “top leadership” has been “neutralize[d]” as “an effective force.” A brief look at al Qaeda's position throughout the globe tells a different story. Dozens of senior al Qaeda terrorists, including of course Osama bin Laden, have been eliminated. But al Qaeda is not a simple top-down terrorist group that can be entirely vanquished by killing or detaining select key leaders. It is a paramilitary insurgency organization that is principally built for waging guerilla warfare. Terrorism is a part of what al Qaeda does, but not nearly all. And a key reason...

    U.S. Secretary of State Kerry and the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power joined representatives of Muslim nations who walked out on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech. In his speech Netanyahu chastised the UN for its continued silence in the face of Iran's repeated threat to wipe Israel off the map. The Secretary characterized his actions as "simple common sense once you look at the numbers. Israel itself has about six million Jews. Worldwide there are maybe another six million. On the other hand, there are over a billion Muslims. Siding with the larger contingent is both...

    Executive Summary The Iranian nuclear deal is a full capitulation to Irans terrorist mastermind Mullahs, and the latest in a series of betrayals of the American people and allies by the Obama administration. At the highest level of the administration, Barack Obamas Senior Advisor, the Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett, prioritized rapprochement with the terror state. Throughout the process and negotiations, she had the backing of billionaire investor (and Obama-backer) George Soros, and his multi-headed network of tax-exempt foundations. Their efforts were driven by deep-rooted anti-Semitism and personal greed. Meanwhile, since the mid-1990s, a small but very connected Iranian lobby (funded, in...

    ew York (AFP) - Russia's dramatic entry Wednesday into the Syrian war put the United States on the back foot once again and left Washington struggling to regain the military and diplomatic initiative. As US Secretary of State John Kerry was in New York trying to coordinate with his Kremlin opposite number Sergei Lavrov, a Russian officer contacted the US embassy in Baghdad. His message was simple: Russian jets are about to launch air strikes in Syria, please stay out of their way. Kerry quickly protested to Lavrov that this was not in the spirit of Moscow's promise to agree...

    Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday rebuffed Russia's demand that U.S. warplanes leave Syrian airspace to make way for their own airstrikes, saying coalition forces are not going anywhere. "These strikes will continue," Kerry said. Kerry spoke at a United Nations Security Council meeting chaired by his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, with whom he reportedly spoke before the meeting. The meeting followed a dramatic escalation in the Syrian conflict, as Russia began bombarding opposition targets inside the country. Speaking in New York, Kerry said he was prepared to welcome Russia's actions if they are directed only at the Islamic...

currently, to 85,000 next year, to 100,000 in 2017. What could possibly go wrong? If history is any guide, approximately 91 percent of this latest huddled refuse of your teeming shores will go onto welfare the

    US Secretary of State John Kerry has blocked a meeting between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas, senior Palestinian and Israeli officials say. During a meeting with four retired Israeli ambassadors in Paris last Monday, Haaretz reported, Abbas said that despite his willingness to meet with Netanyahu, "a third party who is not Israeli" had recently prevented the meeting. Netanyahu has reportedly been sending Abbas messages for weeks about reviving the long-stalled peace process amid escalating Arab violence and Abbas' threat to suspend key clauses of the Oslo Accords during his visit to the United...
