  • The Other Coming Out Party

    The American Thinker ^ | May 21st, 2004 | Richard Baehr
    The Other Coming Out Party May 21st, 2004 On Monday, the first legal gay marriages took place in Massachusetts. Tuesday was another “coming out” day - for Jewish Republicans. I attended the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington, as I have for the last 14 years. Israeli Prime Ministers Yitzhak Rabin, Ariel Sharon, Shimon Peres, and Bibi Netanyahu, have all been enthusiastically received by the AIPAC audience in years past. But the raucous, chanting reception for President Bush on Tuesday morning topped them all. From the moment the crowd of well over 4,000 filled the ballroom, the excitement was palpable. As...

    FLASH: Late Monday, federal prosecutors rejected an offer by the lawyer for celebrity sleuth Anthony Pellicano to plead guilty to one charge of illegally storing C-4 explosives. He now faces three counts and will now go to trial before a judge (not a jury) on Oct. 8. The charges grew out of an FBI search of his office which was prompted by a threat to an L.A. Times reporter.

  • Oslo's Legacy: A Road Map to Nowhere

    Wall Street Journal ^ | September 9, 2003 | MICHAEL B. OREN
    <p>Ten years later, the trouble wrought by the Oslo Accords -- so-called, after the city where they were mediated -- has been incalculable. Instead of a "New Middle East" with peace between Israel and an independent Palestinian state, war has ravaged the area, devastating economies, killing and maiming thousands. Rarely has an agreement been so celebrated -- Rabin and Arafat won Nobel prizes -- generated such vast expectations, and occupied so many presidential days, only to utterly fail. Now, in the wake of Mahmoud Abbas's resignation as Palestinian prime minister, one must asked why.</p>

  • President Reagan Speech on the Loss of the Challenger

    Ronald Reagan Speech on the Challenger Disaster, January 28, 1986 Nineteen years ago, almost to the day, we lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the ground. But, we've never lost an astronaut in flight; we've never had a tragedy like this. And perhaps we've forgotten the courage it took for the crew of the shuttle; but they, the Challenger Seven, were aware of the dangers, but overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We mourn seven heroes: Michael Smith, Dick Scobee, Judith Resnik, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Gregory Jarvis, and Christa McAuliffe. We mourn their loss as a...

    Upon request, I have collected links to many of the earliest threads from September 11, 2001 below. I reviewed threads from the very first FR report (http://www.freeRepublic.com/focus/fr/520255/posts)through thread number 520326. Feel free to add other significant threads, including photo archives. Bumping this thread periodically instead of the original threads will also avoid scaring people with the headlines. Bookmark this thread, and bump it from time to time when the nation and the press seems to forget why we need resolve in the face of evil. Forgive some of the early misinformation and broken photo links, and recall the horror and ...

    Denver Post ^ | January 8, 2002 | George Lane
    Americans shouldn't be afraid of teenage pilots in small planes, despite the suicide flight of a 15-year-old boy in Tampa, Fla., Colorado flight instructors said Monday. Fifteen-year-old Charles Bishop took off Saturday in a single-engine Cessna when his flight instructor wasn't looking, leaving behind left a suicide note supporting the acts of Osama bin Laden. He was the only person killed when he crashed into an empty skyscraper. "He did manage to break a window," said veteran flight instructor Carl Mason, "but that's about it. He wasn't much of a threat. It's like driving a car into a tree. Who's ...
  • Muslim American Leaders: A Wave of Conversion to Islam in the U.S. Following Sep 11 (Arab Spin)

    Middle East Media Research Institute ^ | 11/19/01 | MEMRI translations
    Since September 11, 2001, many articles and reports have appeared in the Arabic press claiming Muslim proselytizing ("Da'wa") in the U.S. has seen an upsurge in Americans' converting. These reports claim messages of tolerance promoted by the U.S. government and local authorities has induced many to convert to Islam. Immediately after the September 11 attacks, Sheikh Raid Sallah, the head of the Islamic movement in Israel, called on U.S. President George Bush to convert to Islam and thus solve all problems. Recently, Sheikh Sallah reiterated his call at a rally in the Arab town of Tamra (the Galilee): "Oh, ...
