A member of the Air Force, a national guardsman and a college student, (all Americans) stopped a terror attack on a French train Friday night.

This report from France 24 has the basic timeline of the incident:

While American activists languished in the debris of their Cecil the Lion meltdown/manhunt, people in Calais have been dealing with a perfect storm of union strikes, stampeding migrants, and a resulting travel standstill.

Much has been made of the inconvenience to Brits attempting to cross the English Channel for a summer holiday,...

Marie Brenner, writing in Vanity Fair, explores whether Jews should leave France.

The French language version of the article is titled Paris En Flammes. With my distant recollection of high school french, that translates as Paris in Flames.

But the English language version has a more descriptive title, The Troubling Question in the...

The details are just coming in, but there has been a terror attack at a gas factory near Lyon, France.

At least one, possibly two, attackers beheaded a man and posted his head on a fence, and tried (unsuccessfully) to blow up the factory.

We will update as more details are confirmed.

We have documented many times the role in the spread of anti-Semitic violence in Europe played by the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

The gross demonization and dehumanization of Israeli Jews by BDS contributes both directly and indirectly to acts of anti-Semitism. We have seen it on the streets...

The controversial National Front party lost ground to former president Nicolas Sarkozy’s center-right UMP party and their allies in the first round of the French elections on Sunday.

UMP took 32% of the vote, with Marine Le Pen’s National Front (FN) trailing at 26%. Current president Francis Hollande’s Socialists came in third...

Walking while Jewish” is a phrase I have been using quite a bit lately, when it comes to the rise of anti-Semitic street harassment and violence in Europe, often masquerading as anti-Zionism and frequently by Muslim young men.

A Swedish reporter made a film recently of how he was harassed in ...

In the newest edition of Afterburner, Bill Whittle takes a close look at France and the events that led to the attack on Charlie Hebdo, particularly European multiculturalism which is anti-assimilationist.

Whittle also makes an excellent analogy to American Politics, citing the identity groups that...

The U.S. failed to send any senior official to the Paris Solidarity Rally. Eric Holder even was in Paris at the time, but did Sunday morning talk shows.

Instead, yesterday John Kerry brought James Taylor to France to play “You’ve Got A Friend” to smooth things over.

The Obama administration has admitted it dropped the ball when it came to not sending any senior administration official to the Paris Solidarity March.

The latest iteration is that no one apparently told the President that this was going to be a big deal.

It was bad enough that none of President Obama, Vice President Biden or Secretary of State Kerry attended Sunday’s Solidarity March in Paris, attended by dozens of world leaders.

It would have been the right thing for Obama to attend. There was enough security to protect obvious targets like the French...

Almost since the beginning of this website in the fall of 2008 I have been sounding the alarm about, and documenting, the rise of anti-Semitism masquerading as anti-Zionism in Europe.

The first is Ahmed Merabet, a French policeman who was killed at Charlie Hebdo.

The attack by radical Islamists at the Paris Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket left four hostages dead, plus one of the gunmen.

The Hyper Cacher supermarket attack appears to have been coordinated with the two men who killed 12 at Charlie Hebdo.
