Israel reported that two Hamas operatives were arrested at the house...

When Mahmoud Abbas’s “moderate” Fatah movement first reached out to make an agreement with the terrorist Hamas movement, the response in the United State was “mostly nonchalant.”

Now that the two sides have announced the creating of a unity government, the response has continued to be muted. Certainly not outraged.

Western Wall Jerusalem

Australia has announced that it no longer will refer to East Jerusalem as “occupied” territory.

This is an enormous and important contribution to Middle East peace, as it corrects the false narrative that Israel’s recapturing of territory illegally occupied by Jordan from 1948-1967 is not justifiably part of Israel.

And so it continues.

All eyes have been focused on the increasingly bizarre facts of the exchange of 5 top Taliban Gitmo detainees for Bowe Bergdahl, someone who may very well be a deserter if reports by soldiers who served with him are accurate.
