    "What is the Islamic State? Where did it come from, and what are its intentions? The simplicity of these questions can be deceiving, and few Western leaders seem to know the answers. In December, The New York Times published confidential comments by Major General Michael K. Nagata, the Special Operations commander for the United States in the Middle East, admitting that he had hardly begun figuring out the Islamic State’s appeal. “We have not defeated the idea,” he said. “We do not even understand the idea.” In the past year, President Obama has referred to the Islamic State, variously, as...

    The family of radical preacher Abu Qatada has won an injunction preventing protesters from demonstrating outside their home. His wife and five children were granted an “anti-harassment” order by a High Court judge in London. Justice Silber also granted them an injunction against various protest groups, preventing them misusing private information about the family—such as their names and address. The judge stressed that his decision did not prevent organizations from protesting against Qatada, provided demonstrations take place more than 500 meters (1640 feet) from the London house where they are living. …

Protesters in suits and T-shirts with union slogans left work early to march with activists who have been camped out in Zuccotti Park for days. Some marchers brought along their children, hoisting them onto their shoulders as they walked down Broadway. "We're here to stop corporate greed," said Mike Pellegrino, an NYC Transit bus mechanic from Rye Brook. "They should pay their...
