    Louisiana is set to host one of the year’s biggest gatherings of infectious disease experts next week, but anyone's who's recently been to West Africa won’t be welcome.A pair of top state officials wrote a letter to the more than 3,500 members of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene who planned to attend the conference this week, warning them to stay away if they’ve had potential Ebola exposure.“In Louisiana, we love to welcome visitors, but we must balance that hospitality with the protection of Louisiana residents and other visitors,” wrote Kathy Klieber, Louisiana’s secretary of Health and Hospitals,...

    Funding for the conference was provided by Clinton donor and Lebanese-Nigerian billionaire Gilbert Chagoury, according to organizers. The wealthy businessman pledged $1 billion to the Clinton Global Initiative in 2009. Chagoury is also reportedly backer of Lebanese politician Michel Aoun, Hezbollah’s top Christian ally in the country, according to U.S. diplomatic cables published by WikiLeaks. Maronite Patriarch Cardinal Bechara Raď, who was scheduled to speak during the same keynote slot as Cruz on Wednesday evening, has called Israel an “enemy state that is occupying Lebanese territory” and defended Hezbollah’s right to attack the Jewish state...

Attendees at the Israel Conference on Peace—which was kicked off with an endorsement by President Barack Obama and features a who’s who of liberal speakers—began shouting hateful slogans and then accosted Knesset member Naftali Bennett after he defended the government’s military action, which was undertaken to stop Hamas terrorists from bombarding civilians with rockets.

The journalist asked a number of pointed questions, especially about Obama’s claim on Friday that “every member of Congress” had been briefed on the NSA’s program involving monitoring of phone calls and Internet service. “Why then are not just Republicans but Democrats like Keith...

CNN correspondent Dana Bash discussed the excesses of the agency in a report on 360, including gifts, video spoofs and upscale hotel rooms for agency higher-ups, but the cost of those and the conference itself was unclear because the IRS had engaged in poor record-keeping: ANDERSON COOPER: I’ve got to go back to something you said.

Akram of Boston University's School of Law told the gathering that there is no legal basis for Jewish self-determination--at all: Israel’s claim of a state, on the basis of exclusive and discriminatory rights to Jews [sic], has never been juridically recognized. In other words, the concept of the Jewish people as a national entity with extraterritorial claims has never been recognized under international law.

This made the conference even more significant, since Ariel is considered by the PA a “settlement” built on...
