Haneen Zoabi hates Israel. She encourages its enemies. She spews anti-Israel propaganda with reckless abandon. The kidnappers and murderers of three Israeli teens last spring were not terrorists, according to her. Haneen Zoabi also is a member of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, as part of Arab nationalist party Balad. There have been…

Some good news in time for Christmas, as it relates to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa. It looks like those September projections of 1.5 million new cases are going to be off…by a fairly wide margin. As of Monday, there were 19,340 Ebola cases and 7,518 deaths, mostly in West Africa, according to…
