As Professor Jacobson noted, under the Obama-Clinton foreign policy ISIS has grown in strength and in territory.  Now ISIS’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is goading the west in what might be considered a childish taunt if ISIS hadn’t been allowed to grow and prosper into a lethal organization with global reach.

The hits keep on coming.

Republicans continue slamming Obama and his administration over their capitulation to Iran on the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). As part of the spending bill Congress passed a law tightening restrictions on the VWP, which would mean that business people who traveled...

It’s a peculiar tradition.  As Christians prepare to celebrate Christmas, the media churns out articles blaming Israel for Christian struggles in the Holy Land.

In two recent posts (see here and here) we reported on the December 20 assassination of Lebanese Druze terrorist Samir Kuntar in Jaramana, a suburb of Damascus.

As we highlighted, Kuntar received three life sentences for his role in a 1979 terrorist attack which brutally devastated an entire Israeli family.

The 9/11 terror attack changed the way Americans think about and law enforcement / the feds treat hijacked airlines, and San Bernardino and Paris are changing the way that Americans think about “active shooter” situations in the gun-free zones in which they tend to occur.

Previously, office workers were taught to hunker...

Iran and its allies have taken a beating in Syria according to recent reports.

Perhaps the most spectacular was the airstrike overnight that killed the notorious child killer, Samir Kuntar and eight other terrorists in a Damascus suburb. Prof. Jacobson rightly called Kuntar “among the most notorious and vicious terrorists,” for shooting...

Chuck Hagel was Obama’s third Defense Secretary–the other two: Robert Gates and Leon Panetta–to leave his position under difficult circumstances.

As late as November 19, 2014, Hagel told Charlie Rose that he didn’t wake up in the morning worried about his job, and in less than a week, on the 24th of...

Why indeed? After all, 9/11 was far, far worse in terms of loss of life. The attacks themselves during 9/11 were far more high-tech and fiendishly clever, as well. There have been many, many terrorist attacks since, and they have all caused outrage and consternation. But something about the Friday the...

An Air France flight was diverted to an emergency landing after a bomb-like device was found in a bathroom. It was a fake, made of cardboard with a crude timer on it, as would have been obvious to anyone handling it.

But the pilots took no chances.

Samir Kuntar was among the most notorious and vicious terrorists.

A Druze, he was part of a group that landed in Israel in 1979, took a family hostage, and smashed a 4-year old child’s head against a rock with his rifle butt:

Russia’s policy of bloody deterrence and intimidation is reaping battlefield victories, and exposing US fecklessness in Syria.  President Obama has decided the risk of alienating the Syrian population and providing propaganda fodder for ISIS and other anti-Western organizations outweighs the benefits of a substantive military intervention, but Russian President Vladimir Putin’...
