    The Israeli military has demolished the home of the Palestinian terrorist who fatally stabbed American tourist and former U.S. Army officer Taylor Force in a terror attack back in March. Ten others were also wounded in the attack. The troops entered the West Bank village of Hajjah early on Tuesday to knock down the residence of Bashar Masalha. […] Force was a Vanderbilt University graduate student visiting Israel during a school trip. He previously graduated from West Point and served tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Masalha was killed by police after the attack. The assault was part of...

    The painful lesson of the Orlando massacre is that no place in the world is immune to fanatical religious extremists willing to kill themselves to achieve heavenly salvation. The Western world is floundering in its pathetic efforts to confront the demonic global forces threatening to plunge it back into the Dark Ages. Its failure is largely due to the inability of democratic countries to face reality and devise a united strategy to vanquish these Islamic fundamentalist terrorists. Instead, Western leaders bury their heads in the sand and cravenly resort to policies of appeasement, even though there is not a single...

    Arrest the Widow, Investigate the Family The Orlando jihad mass murderer was anything but a “lone wolf.” June 20, 2016 Robert Spencer    Noor Salman, the wife of Omar Mateen, the Orlando gay nightclub jihad mass murderer, has gone missing, and with good reason: she explodes the idea that Mateen was a “lone wolf” terrorist. She should be arrested – but now she is gone. Salman witnessed him selling his house to his brother-in-law for $10 – a clear indication that the couple knew jihad was in the offing. She has admitted to law enforcement authorities that she and...

    According to a Gallup poll taken in the week after the atrocity in Orlando, only 29% of Democrats thought this was an Islamic terror attack. Fully 60% of all Democrats attributed the attack to “domestic gun violence.” Moreover 42% of independents felt the same way. Only 44% attributed it to the Islamic holy war that has been declared on America and the West.1 How is this possible? During the massacre, the terrorist himself took pains to post messages declaring that his acts were acts of Islamic terror against America. “Now taste the Islamic state vengeance," one message said. Another warned,...

    There is a deep and unacknowledged irony to the fact that US President Barack Obama, of all people, has opined in the days since the terror attack in Orlando that how you term things makes no difference. “What exactly would using this label [‘radical Islam’] accomplish? … Calling a threat by a different name does not make it go away. This is a political distraction,” Obama said on Tuesday in response to the heavy criticism poured on him after he, once more, refused to use the term in connection with the mass shooting. Islamic State quickly claimed responsibility for the...

    It makes a difference between life and death. Obama is angry. Not at the terrorists, mind you, but at Donald Trump and those who criticize him for calling our enemies “extremists” (like the Sandy Hook and Aurora shooters) instead of “radical Islamic terrorists,” which is what they are. “Radical Islamic terrorist” is not a strategy, says the president. But it is the necessary step in creating one. Obama wants to treat our enemies as individual criminals, lone wolves and nut jobs. Since he is the commander-in-chief he defines the policy parameters under which our military and intelligence agencies operate. The...

    Russia is not ruling out using its veto power at the United Nations Security Council to thwart anti-Israel resolutions, an unnamed Israeli diplomatic official involved in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s trip to Moscow last week told the Israeli news site nrg. However, the official did qualify his statement, saying that the chances of Russia wielding its veto power in such a manner were very low. The official noted that the high level of respect Russian President Vladmir Putin demonstrated toward Netanyahu and his traveling entourage last week was unprecedented and indicated Russia’s deep desire to bolster its relationship with Israel....

    A Preoccupied Western Media Fails to Appreciate the Historic Revival of Ties Between Russia and Israel Putin Netanyahu.JPG The recent meeting in Moscow between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin marks a milestone in the continuing rapproachment between Israel and Russia. The growing engagement between these former bitter adversaries has attracted limited attention in the Western media, obsessed as it is with Israeli-Palestinian issues. In its prior embodiment as the Soviet Union, the Russian government armed and abetted Israel's enemies and had a central role in the worldwide campaign to delegitimize the Jewish state.

    The New York Times marked the holiday of Shavuot — a holiday that celebrates the covenant between God and the Jewish people, a covenant in which the Jews get a land in return for following the law — by publishing an attack on the Jewish state. The attack came in the form of an op-ed piece by one Daniel Sieradski. Perhaps the Times chose to publish it on a Jewish holiday to prevent observant Jews from challenging it in real-time. Kind of an opinion journalism version of the Yom Kippur War. But the Times article would be nonsense no matter...

    Shouting “Allahu akbar,” a 29-year-old American citizen with roots in Afghanistan entered a Florida nightclub at 2 am on Sunday morning and committed what is being called “the worst mass shooting in US history.” While slaughtering 49 people and seriously wounding dozens of others, Omar Mateen phoned 9-1-1 and pledged allegiance to the leader of ISIS. Mateen had planned the massacre in advance, purposely targeting a venue with which he was familiar, known to be frequented by lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgenders – the perfect personification of liberal Western values considered abhorrent to radical Muslims, regardless of their specific...

The speech was specific, detailed and on the money. Trump showed how strategic securing the border is, how important stopping immigration from terror zones like Syria is, and how deadly political correctness has become. Political correctness – which transforms the Islamic world, which has a lot to answer for, from aggressors into innocent victims – functions as a shield for Islamic terrorists,...

    JNS.org – After four Israelis were killed Wednesday in a Palestinian terrorist shooting at the Sarona market in Tel Aviv, many international media outlets came under fire for initially reporting misleading information about the attack and in some cases not describing the shooting as terrorism. While many such news headlines and article texts were later amended, the original phrasing has continued to circulate on social media and on the websites of media watchdog organizations. In a breaking news update about the attack on Twitter, the American cable news network CNN placed the word “terrorists” in quotation marks, angering Twitter followers...

    There was something poetic about the events that bookended the past week of diplomacy. This week began with French President François Hollande’s “peace” conference and ended with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s state visit to Moscow. From the perspective of both substance and style, the contrast between the two events couldn’t have been more striking. France hosted yet another anti-Israel diplomatic pile-on. Hollande had hoped to show that France was stepping into the void left by the US’s abandonment of its position as world leader. But all the confab served to do was show how irrational and self-destructive France – and...

    The US State Department condemned the recent terror attack in Tel Aviv, but also warned that Israel should avoid having any “impact on Palestinian citizens that are trying to go about their daily lives”. On Wednesday night two Palestinians from a village near Hebron entered a restaurant in the Sarona Market in downtown Tel Aviv and opened fire, killing four. One terrorist was shot in the legs while attempting to flee and the other surrendered to police. Israel has responded by rescinding 204 work permits of the terrorists’ family members and 83,000 entry permits for Arabs from Judea and Samaria...

    TEL AVIV, Israel — Two Israeli battalions were being sent to the West Bank Thursday after two Palestinians fatally shot four people at a Tel Aviv mall. The buildup would include hundreds of troops in "accordance with situation assessments," according to the Israel Defence Forces statement. They would not give any more details on the numbers involved. Israel also revoked 83,000 permits for Palestinians living in Gaza and the occupied West Bank to travel abroad and attend Ramadan prayers in Jerusalem. In the past, restrictions on access to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, the holy site in the heart of Jerusalem's...

    Word is going around diplomatic circles that the Obama administration is planning a November surprise for Israel. Here’s what is said to be going on: The Paris peace conference last Friday, to which Israel and the Palestinians were not even invited, will end up exerting enormous pressure on Israel to create a Palestinian state. This renewed pressure will come despite evidence that a Palestinian state in the West Bank will quickly be dominated by genocidal Hamas, which is a threat to Israel and a disaster for the Palestinians. This will lead, in all likelihood, to a United Nations Security Council...

By his recent derogatory remarks about Mexican immigrants, Donald Trump’s disrespect of such a large segment of the population of America is not only unbelievable, but outright wrong.

Ron Kampeas of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reports: In a rare and sharp split with Israeli government policy, a group of Jewish...

    Originally published by the . The Israeli Left is a one trick pony. As it sees things, all of Israel’s problems – with the Palestinians, with the Arab world, with Europe and with the American Left – can be solved by giving up Judea and Samaria and half of Jerusalem (along with Gaza which we gave up already). Once Israel does this, the Left insists, then the Palestinians, the Arab world, Europe and Bernie Sanders voters will love us as they’ve never loved us before. The events of the past quarter century have shown the Left’s position to be entirely...

    BDS Flounders Amid String of Humiliating Defeats How anti-BDS legislation has neutered the group and hampered its ability to function. May 31, 2016 Ari Lieberman    It’s been a really bad month for the anti-Semitic BDS movement, a strange alliance of radical leftists and Islamists who advocate the destruction of Israel through economic and cultural boycotts.  The hate group suffered a number of major setbacks in recent weeks. Some of these reversals represent mere moral victories but others have far reaching consequences that may well spell doom for BDS’s future operations and ability to function.  In May, the Strasbourg-based...

    JNS.org – Ever wonder why it is that Congress passes so many strongly pro-Israel bills, yet they never seem to be implemented? For example, a bill was passed to move the Embassy of the United States in Israel to Jerusalem — but the embassy was never moved. Legislation was passed to restrict US aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA) — but it was never restricted. Now a bill has been passed to permit families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia — but in fact, it will actually block such lawsuits. What all three of these laws have in common...

    No Retreat from Hillary’s Village Clinton's dream of sending federal agents into American homes. May 26, 2016 Mary Grabar    A campaign ad that Hillary Clinton used against Barack Obama in 2008 featured images of sleeping children, with a voice asking who would answer the phone ringing in the White House at 3 a.m., “someone who already knows the world leaders . . . the military,” someone “tested and ready to lead”—or (by implication) a first-term U.S. Senator/community organizer? Hillary Clinton is running for president again, and of course is ignoring her failure as secretary of state to answer...

May 26, 2016 Matthew Vadum    An outbreak of deadly infectious tuberculosis among refugees President Obama sent to Indiana is a frightening reminder that the administration's dangerous immigration policies are putting American lives at risk. In a frenzied rush to bring as many non-English-speaking Third World aliens to the country as possible before his presidency ends in a few months, Obama is allowing Syrian war migrants and refugees to be brought into the country without first undergoing proper medical examinations,...

    The lifting of a court gag order on a severe incident that occurred in Tel Aviv two weeks ago once again demonstrates the blatant double standards of the mainstream media and the international community. It was revealed on Wednesday that earlier this month police arrested two young Arab men - one an Israeli citizen and the other from the Palestinian-controlled territories - on suspicion they and a third accomplice had brutally raped a mentally handicapped Jewish girl. The girl, who filed the initial complaint, was found by police to be in severe mental distress. Over the course of the investigation,...
