In August 2015, we ran a post by Anne in Petah Tikva about Ayla (Ayala) Shapira, an 11-year old Israeli girl horribly burned in a terror attack.

That attack received almost no media attention outside Israel.

Anne’s post was, This child #WasBurnedAlive in West Bank, but you probably never heard of her:

Susan Rice is at the center of the storm over reports that she “unmasked” the names of Trump campaign and transition officials, as described in our prior post, Susan Rice unmasked? Previously said “I know nothing about” Nunes allegations.

I appeared earlier today on America Talks Live, with Steve Malzberg.

The discussion centered on two big developments today, the reports that Susan Rice “unmasked” Trump campaign and transition officials names from intelligence reports, and the Neil Gorsuch nomination and the threat of a filibuster.

The American Studies Association (ASA), which is run by anti-Israel activists from academia, was the first (and only) significant-sized American faculty association to adopt the academic boycott of Israel.

A few very small groups also have adopted the boycott, but attempts to reach larger organizations, such as the Modern Language Association, American...

We have covered the case of Rasmea Odeh for the past two and one half years.

Rasmea was convicted of the 1969 supermarket bombing in Jerusalem that killed Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner.

The evidence against Rasmea was overwhelming, and has become even more so with recent video interviews with her co-conspirators who...

Devin Nunes is now the object of Democrat ire because of his claim that he has seen evidence that presents a possible problem with “unmasking” names of Trump campaign and administration officials by the Obama administration unrelated to Russia.

The allegations are explosive and could open up a wide investigation of Obama...
