  • Forbes: GOP Support of Israel Responsible for Christian Persecution in Middle East

    Despite much hand-wringing by Republican leadership, the GOP is actually complicit in the persecution of Christians in the Middle East because of its vocal support for Israel, argues Doug Bandow in a Forbes essay Saturday. Bandow rightly notes that Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world today and are “harassed and harmed in more than 100 countries.” Christians, he writes, “are particularly vulnerable to government abuse, especially in Muslim-majority states.” Yet Bandow takes issue with Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 79% ’s Christmas Eve article denouncing attacks on Christian communities, contending that the GOP, rather than the Obama...

    Millions of Syrians have fled their homes amid civil war, flooding Europe and causing a refugee crisis not seen since the end of World War II. Recently, the Obama administration announced its intention to resettle at least 10,000 Syrian refugees in the United States over the next year, an increase from fewer than 2,000 this year. That number could rise to as many as 100,000 refugees by 2017. Overall, the United States takes in roughly 70,000 refugees a year, and some activists are calling for that number to be raised to 200,000. Some experts have said allowing in so many...
