    President of the European Jewish Congress Dr. Moshe Kantor spoke Sunday about the fact that Jews feel less welcome and more insecure in large parts of Europe during the release of the findings regarding the situation of anti-Semitism worldwide in 2013. Kantor was speaking at a press conference where the annual findings for 2013 were released by The Kantor Center for the Study of Contemporary European Jewry and the Moshe Kantor database for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism and Racism at Tel Aviv University, in cooperation with the European Jewish Congress. Results from the 2013 survey show that anti-Semitic attacks...

    The team of FBI agents that unearthed the emails between David Petraeus and Paula Broadwell also discovered this gushing draft memo from Speaker of the House John Boehner to President Obama. They didn’t know what to do with it, so they sent it to me. Dear Mr. President: Seeing that YouTube video of you choking up while thanking your campaign volunteers in Chicago reminded me of how much we have in common, even though we are from different political parties. You sometimes cry; I sometimes cry. You like golf and cigarettes; I like golf and cigarettes. You just got re-elected;...

    (CNSNews.com) - President Barack Obama, speaking from El Salvador, said that lives have been saved in Libya because of the U.S.-led military intervention there. “I just want to emphasize to the American people, because of the extraordinary capabilities and valor of our men and women in uniform, we have already saved lives [in Libya],” Obama said on Tuesday. “In Benghazi, a city of 700,000 people, you had the prospect of [Muammar] Qaddafi’s forces carrying out his orders to show no mercy,” the president said. “That could have resulted in catastrophe in that town. Qaddafi’s forces have pulled back because of...

    With U.S. and coalition forces bombarding Libya leader Muammer al-Qaddafi's forces from the sea and air, the cost for the first day alone of the operation was well over $100 million with the total price tag expected to grow much higher the longer the strikes continue, analysts said.(Snip) With allies expected to shoulder some of the bill, the initial stages of taking out Libya's air defenses could ultimately cost U.S.-led coalition forces between $400 million and $800 million, according to a report released by the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments earlier this month.

    There aren't too many things that can brighten up a persons disposition better then seeing puppies frolicking about as they explore their surroundings. It usually doesn't take long for them to wear themselves out either. That's why one moment they can be chewing on each others ears, and the next moment be falling asleep as if they were a mechanical toy who's batteries have just died. It's also comical they way they will fall asleep in the middle of what ever it is they are doing, as if they suffer from some form of animal narcolepsy. Well with that in...

    Yesterday, Fox News reported the hearings held by Senator Joe Lieberman with cabinet officials concerning a shortage of flu vaccine. I'm sitting in Afghanistan not getting much broadcast TV news. I wanted to find out more, so I searched Google News for related articles. It turns out that as of this writing, the rest of the media is not reporting this event, at least in print. Try this. Go to the Google search page, click on the "News" tab. Now enter "Joe Lieberman".

    SUFFOLK, Va., March 7, 2006 – While participants in an international experiment taking place here and at 10 sites around the world are looking at ways to improve future coalition operations, their findings are already being applied to coalition efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan, U.S. Joint Forces Command officials explained today.

    Legal wars stirring over election 2004 Concerns about voter enfranchisement and the system's integrity have lawyers busy already. By Linda Feldmann | Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor 10/21/2004 WASHINGTON – For weeks, reports of potential trouble have been trickling in from around the country. There are the suspicious - or clearly fraudulent - signatures on voter registrations. There are the allegedly unreliable electronic voting machines, controversies over lists of ex-felons, and conflicting court rulings over provisional ballots. And, as always, there is human and mechanical error. Chances are, the 2004 election will not be close enough in key...

    VALE, Oregon - Typically, the irrigation water in Malheur County lasts until mid-October. But not this year. The water supply is being cut off two months early. A three-year drought has already forced some farmers near Vale, Oregon out of business. The 500 farmers using the Vale Irrigation District have seen the water sources dry up early before, and it will happen in about 4 days. And for the third year, it's happening in mid-august. Crops such as hay, potatoes, and sugar beets can't survive with the water cut off this early. "This year and last year farmers had to...

    WASHINGTON - Former President Clinton said Thursday that neither the Iraq situation nor the war on terrorism should interfere with efforts to strengthen the economy and fix a health care system that leaves 41 million people uninsured. "No one really thinks these terrorists are going to win a military victory over us, even if God forbid we see another terrible incident or two in our country," Clinton said. "The only way that we can be vanquished is if we respond to this in a way that compromises the future of our children and the character of our nation." Speaking to...
