    Peace, brotherhood, and good sportsmanship -- these are the Olympic ideals, we're told, that the games are all about.Of course, greed, commercial exploitation, and corruption make up the true "Olympic spirit," but no one wants to counter the fairy tale.And part of that fairy tale is that athletes -- even from warring countries -- get along perfectly, leaving conflict and bad feelings behind them as they meet in the spirit of good, clean fun and competition.Perhaps we should ask the Lebanese delegation how the fairy tale is working out.Times of Israel: Members of the Lebanese delegation to the 2016 Olympic...

    Yesterday, February 14, was Valentine’s Day, the sacred day that intimate companions mark to celebrate their love and affection for one another. If you’re thinking about making a study of how couples celebrate this day, the Muslim world and the milieus of the radical Left are not the places you should be spending your time. Indeed, it’s pretty hard to outdo jihadists and “progressives” when it comes to the hatred of Valentine’s Day. And this hatred is precisely the territory on which the contemporary romance between the Left and Islamic fanaticism is formed.

"No Californians" stickers are mysteriously popping up on for sale signs in front homes that are on the market.

While some hope the trip will bring closer ties between our two countries, there's one subject many Kenyans don't want the president to talk about: gay rights and same-sex marriage. The streets are already buzzing in anticipation of his arrival, with polls showing Obama enjoys widespread popularity among Kenyans. "I think this is a guy who really appreciates his roots," said one resident of the capital city. "Because he is our brother,...

The sentiment reflects an anti-Muslim distrust that has been brewing over the last year in parts of Texas, most notably 25 miles away in Garland - the scene of a deadly May shooting...

    The union looking to organize workers at Boeing's South Carolina plant has put its plans in a holding pattern, claiming workers are so opposed to signing up that they chased labor leaders off their porches at gunpoint. The North Charleston plant, which opened in the right-to-work state four years ago and builds fuselages for 747s and 787s, employs about 7,500 workers. The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers had been trying to build support for a vote this week on unionizing 3,175 production and maintenance workers, but called off the vote days before it was to happen.
