In my memory, there are certain place markers in the history of terrorism that led to where we are today.

The 1972 Munich Massacre of Israeli athletes (1972); the bombing of the Beirut Marine Barracks (1983), the World Trade Center attacks (1993 and 2001); the Jerusalem Sbarro Pizza bombing (2001) and the...

Okay, time to close the internet.

Elizabeth Warren just tweeted this:

The false accusation of lying by Warren was directed at Steve Mnuchin and Tom Price. There’s no proof that they lied, but it’s good to know that Senator Warren considers lying in connection with obtaining a job is a disqualifier.

It’s not like I told you so.

But I told you so. Many, many times.

To those in the U.S. academic community who support the academic boycott of Israeli academics because they don’t like the policies of the Israeli government, I warned that they better prepare for the day when foreign academics start...

I appeared Monday night, January 30, 2017, on BBC World News hosted by Mike Embley.

The topic was Trump’s immigration Executive Order. We didn’t talk about all the provisions, just the 90 day delay on visa entry from 7 majority Muslim nations.

You can find many of my arguments in my prior post,

Donald Trump recently said that he would announce his Supreme Court pick on Thursday.

But there are multiple reports today that the announcement may come as early as Monday. Moving up the pick would be viewed as a conversation changer after a media frenzy over the weekend regarding the visa and refugee...

I always find it amusing when liberals accuse other liberals of being too soft, too apologetic, too willing to give in.

In contrast, liberals portray Republicans, and particularly the dreaded Tea Party, as tough as nails, unapologetic, and unyielding.

As they say in liberal land, that is not my “lived experience.”

Yesterday Donald Trump signed an Executive Order on refugees and visa entry procedures.

You should read the actual EO, because most of the media and leftist pundits either have not or are lying if they have.

There are some stark policy differences about immigration and refugees over which people can disagree — those...

In the late 1970s while in college I saw The Roches play.

I’ve featured their songs on the Video of the Day section of the sidebar several years ago. Their songs were mostly positive, great harmonies, never attacking anyone, and generally bring back fond memories of that time.

Linda Sarsour was co-chair of the Women’s March, even though she was not one of the founders.

Sarsour and two other “women of color” who would become the faces of the march were selected by the white female founder Bob Bland:

The Women’s March on Washington, and in many other mostly liberal cities, is being portrayed as the launch of a new “resistance” to Donald Trump and Republicans.

The use of the term “resistance” is not by accident.

It conjures up the heroism and selflessness of the French Resistance and the Resistance movements in...

Those threats already are moving into the operational planning phase, with the Fatah Party, to which Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas belongs, mapping out its terror strategy.

Donald Trump repeatedly promised to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem.

That promise was made not only during the campaign, but after the election.

In response, the Palestinians did what they always do — internationalize the conflict coupled with threats of violence.

Numerous high officials in the Palestinian Authority...
