    Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Friday on FNC’s “The Faulkner Focus” that it is just a matter of time before President Joe Biden’s policies lead to an attack on Americans. Graham said, “Well if you are a Border Patrol agent, you feel abandoned by the Biden Administration. I’ve been to the Border Patrol — border many times. I don’t know how they go home at night and get up the next day. They’re seeing human trafficking at a level I’ve never seen. They’re overwhelmed with illegal immigrants coming in. People on the terrorist watch list are going right through.”

    The UN General Assembly this week passed a resolution to characterize the founding of the modern state of Israel in 1948 as a “catastrophe,” in what has been heralded as a major victory for pro-Palestinian activists. The word “Nakba,” which means catastrophe or disaster in Arabic, was also a term coined by the Palestinians to commemorate the Jewish state’s founding. The UN resolution acknowledges the Palestinian version of the events that led to Israel’s creation, and calls for the “commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Nakba,” with a “high-level event” at the global body on May 15th, 2023.

    Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party has signed a deal to give an Israeli government post to an openly homophobic ultra-nationalist party leader. It is the latest development set to give far-right parties unprecedented power within Israel's ruling coalition. Avi Maoz will be a deputy minister and run a "Jewish identity" authority. He heads Noam, a religious-nationalist, anti-Arab and anti-LGBTQ party that argues for a strict interpretation of Jewish religious laws in Israel. The agreement has added to a growing sense of alarm over the composition of Mr Netanyahu's likely government. Outgoing Prime Minister Yair Lapid has described it as "full-on crazy",...
