    President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won't enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice.

The tactic was detailed in a series of stories by The Associated Press and became the subject of two federal lawsuits. In a series of articles that began in August 2011, the AP...

Upon their fathers’ orders, Iraqi girls were betrothed to strangers and rivals alike to resolve tribal disputes or incur favor.But in the mid-1970s, such acts — called “fasliyah” — were prohibited as the nation moved toward secularization and modernity.“This decree [banning fasliyah] constituted the first step toward a civilized Iraqi community,” reports the Middle East publication Al-Monitor, “which would put an end to the failures of the tribal… society.”In the years that followed, rates of child marriage plummeted. By 1997, only 15 percent of...

    The Islamic jihadists claim after every atrocity that they are merely retaliating and exacting revenge for an earlier attack. But the same question must be asked here that must be asked of the “Palestinian” jihad against Israel: what would happen if the non-Muslim side stopped fighting? Non-Muslims would be conquered, there would be wholesale slaughter, and regions would be Islamized. What, on the other hand, would happen if the Muslim side stopped fighting? There would be peace.As for this jihadist intention to strike fear into the hearts of their enemies, it’s strictly Qur’anic: “Against them make ready your strength to...

    Attorney General Eric Holder told a House Appropriations subcommittee on Friday that his department doesn’t have a “formal relationship” with a controversial Islamic group while a chairman argued that an interpretation of the law has inexplicably tied the Pentagon’s hands in nabbing the Benghazi attackers. At a hearing to review the Justice Department’s FY 2015 budget request, Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Chairman Frank Wolf (R-Va.) reminded Holder, the sole witness, that last year the DOJ was “directed to follow the lead of the FBI to keep distance between government officials and individuals or organizations associated...
