    When border czar Kamala Harris was put in charge of finding the "root causes" of illegal immigration, she visited Central America. At the time it seemed like it was mostly Latinos from Mexico and Central America walking across the U.S. border seeking "asylum." But as we've learned from Fox News' Bill Melugin, these asylum seekers are coming from all around the world — they're not walking here in caravans wearing matching "Biden Let Us In" T-shirts. Word is out that if you cross over from Mexico to the United States, you're in. That's why you have well-dressed refugees from Africa...

    During Sunday’s broadcast of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) voiced his disapproval of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s leadership. Clyburn, a confidant of President Joe Biden, argued Netanyahu’s leadership had been bad for Israel. However, he would not go as far as to say Biden agreed with him about Netanyahu. “When it comes to Israel, should he stick with his position on Prime Minister Netanyahu or perhaps rethink that relationship?” “Face the Nation” host Robert Costa asked.

    National Unity party chairman Minister Benny Gantz addressed the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations today (Sunday) and discussed the war against Hamas and criticized international attempts to impose a Palestinian state at this time. Gantz began his remarks by saying that "Our home is under attack. Today, and since October 7th - We have all come together to defend it." "October 7th was a vile display of our enemy’s inhumanity," he said. "What followed, were waves of antisemitism around the world, on the streets and campuses, leaving us with one clear takeaway." Gantz called for the formation...

    President Isaac Herzog meets with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference. In public remarks before the meeting, Blinken says the US is “doing everything possible” to return the hostages held by Hamas and stresses the Biden administration is “thinking, as we always do, about Israel’s security both today, but also for every day, for the long term.” “We’re thinking of the suffering of people caught up in the middle of conflict, including the Palestinian men, women and children in Gaza,” he says. “We’re thinking as well of the genuine opportunities that lie...

    Following the deadly Iran-backed attack on American troops in Jordan on January 28, Biden and his Pentagon brass pledged a "multi-tier" response for the brazen assault that killed three U.S. service members. The retributive strikes saw at least one senior leader of Kata'ib Hezbollah — one of the handful of Iran-backed terrorist organizations that have been coordinating scores of attacks on U.S. troops in the Middle East since October — in Baghdad, but there was a notable lack of punishment for the source of all the chaos in the region: the regime in Tehran. It appears that was by Biden's...

    Jordan’s King Abdullah gives one of his most pointed criticisms of Hamas’s October 7 terror onslaught. “All attacks against innocent civilians, women and children, including those of October 7, cannot be accepted by any Muslim,” he says alongside US President Joe Biden. “As I have previously stressed, we must make sure the horrors of the past few months since October 7, are never repeated, nor accepted by any human being.” “We must together, along with Arab partners and the international community, step up efforts to reach a ceasefire in Gaza and immediately start working to create a political horizon that...

    Once considered a place for business only, the Gaza war has prompted a wave of increasingly political content, particularly among Israeli technology leaders. How will this change the platform?The Israel Gaza war is impacting how people consume social media, even on generally apolitical platforms such as LinkedIn. Traditionally, LinkedIn has been where professionals post their expertise and network online to generate business opportunities. Since its acquisition by Microsoft in 2016, however, LinkedIn has become an active content platform, too. Since October 7, the amount of political content posted on LinkedIn is unprecedented, breaking a social norm on the platform. LinkedIn...

    What is the Israeli Defense Force supposed to do with a million or so Palestinian refugees as their operations to kill every last Hamas wipes the Gaza Strip from north to south like a giant, well-armed squeegee? The President of Egypt, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who is sometimes mistaken for the President of Mexico, has an answer to that vexing question — and it's something of a completely routine miracle how the mainstream media and the Global Professional Outrage Machine have both ignored it. The essence of el-Sisi's answer is: "Do what you will to the Palestinians, Israel, but they aren't...

    Senior Hamas Nukhba Brigade Commander Abu al-Baraa told the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) during interrogations on Thursday that he had a message for the remaining Hamas fighters, "I recommend everyone surrender, your fate is death." The Shin Bet published parts of their investigation of Hamas operative Muhammad Nasir Suleiman Abu-Namr or Abu al-Baraa - who told them about the moments when he was captured and how he and his friends chose to lay down their arms and surrender. The Shin Bet said that Abu al-Baraa was caught hiding behind an armored door in a tunnel deep under Khan Yunis,...

    Actor Selma Blair is facing backlash online after an Islamophobic Instagram comment from last week went viral. The comment was made on an Instagram video posted by Abraham Hamra one week ago, in which he calls out U.S. Representatives Rashida Tlaib, D-Mi., and Cori Bush, D-Mo., for being the only two members of Congress to vote against a measure that would prevent anyone who partook in the Oct. 7 terrorist attack on Israel from immigrating to the U.S. Hamra, whose Instagram bio refers to him as a speaker and Syrian Jewish refugee, calls Tlaib a "liar," "moron" and a "hateful...

    Australian police are investigating threats against a five-year-old Jewish child amid an uproar over the publication online of a list of hundreds of Jewish creatives’ personal information by prominent pro-Palestinian activists. Hundreds of Jewish academics and creatives who joined a private WhatsApp group last year had their personal information shared publicly by the activists this week. At least one family has gone into hiding amid ensuing harassment, Josh Burns, a Jewish Australian lawmaker, said during a radio interview on Friday morning, prompting shock from the interviewer. “They were completely shattered by this whole experience, where a sort of lynch mob...

    President Joe Biden referred to former President Trump as an “existential threat” during a fundraiser in New York City on Wednesday, as anti-Israel protesters blocked Fifth Avenue outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art. “There is one existential threat: it’s Donald Trump,” Biden told business leaders during his first stop of the day at the Upper West Side home of Larry Linden, the former managing partner of Goldman Sachs. “He’ll try to undo everything we’ve done… We can’t let that happen,” Biden said. “There is only one existential threat we face in the world: and that’s the environment.” The president had...

    After a weekend of U.S. strikes against its proxies in Iraq, Syria and Yemen, Iran has issued a strongly worded warning not to target a ship that U.S. officials and analysts suspect of providing real-time intelligence for attacks on other vessels in the Red Sea and serving as a forward operating base for its commandos. In a slickly produced video published on the Iranian Army’s Telegram channel Sunday, a narrator says in English that “those engaging in terrorist activities against the MV Behshad or similar vessels, jeopardize international maritime routes, security and assume global responsibility for potential future international risks.”

Experts say that the new violence in the Middle East is a direct result of a failure...
