  • On This Day: The World Decided to Stop Saddam Hussein's Forces Marauding Around Kuwait

    The Telegraph ^ | 30 NOVEMBER 2016 | DOMINIC SELWOOD
    At 2.00 A.M. on 2 August 1990, Iraqi Republican Guard soldiers, special forces, regular army troops, and air force units invaded Kuwait. Despite calls for Kuwaitis to rise up and “make the aggressors taste the chalice of death”, the invading forces swiftly overran the country’s defences. Within days, Saddam Hussein announced that the Emir of Kuwait had been deposed and Kuwait was now Iraq’s nineteenth province. Hussein’s motives went back to the Iraq-Iran war of 1980–88 in which he invaded Iran. Kuwait lent him US$ 14 billion to help finance the conflict, and Hussein became unhappy when Kuwait refused to...

    Former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Thursday that he still believes the only real solution for Iran is “regime change.” “The only longterm solution is regime change in Tehran,” said Bolton. “The ayatollahs are the principal threat to international peace and security and the Middle East.” Bolton continued, “Their ouster won’t bring sweetness and light to the region, that’s for sure, but it will eliminate the principal threat.” “I think the people of Iran would long for a new regime. I think we saw that in the summer of 2009 with...

    President-elect Donald Trump's threat to sink Iranian ships was "just a joke" according to one of the country's generals. "The person who has recently achieved power, has talked off the top of his head! Threatening Iran in the Persian Gulf is just a joke," General Mohammad Hossein Bagheri said, according to The Times of Israel. He added that presidential candidates in the United States "eat too much sugar" during campaigns, referring to a Farsi proverb about talking nonsense. Trump said in September that Iranian ships attempting to provoke America "will be shot out of the water" if he were president.

    Biofuels are often touted as an alternative to fossil fuels, but many depend on raw materials that would quickly become scarce if production were scaled up. As an alternative to these alternatives, the US Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has found a way to potentially produce 30 million barrels of biocrude oil per year from the 34 billion gal (128 billion liters) of raw sewage that Americans create every day. According to PNNL, the problem with using sewage as a source material for biocrude is it's too wet and requires drying before more conventional processes can handle...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq – Donald Trump’s favorability rating is sky-high here, where citizens are paying surprisingly close attention to the U.S. election and see the developer and political novice as the clear choice for the White House. In dozens of interviews FoxNews.com conducted in various cities across the country this month – with Iraqis from different religions and walks of life – the overwhelming majority support Trump over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Many believe Trump would be tough on terror, and blame Clinton – at least in part – for policies that have destabilized much of the Middle East. "America should...

Originally published by the Gatestone Institute. Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. As the Muslim persecution of Christians continues to reach critical proportions around the world (see report below), the average American shows much more concern than the current administration.  Soon after it was revealed that the Obama administration has taken in 5,435 Muslim refugees, but only 28 Christians—even though Christians are approximately 10 percent of Syria’s population and are classified...

    JERUSALEM — After a presidential campaign dominated by reality-show-style insults and put-downs, the winner of next month’s American election will wake up the following morning to find a far more daunting reality waiting: a Middle East awash in conflict and disarray, desperate for American leadership. The 45th president will inherit problems associated with the region that are vastly more challenging than any in a generation as the old order has given way to a kaleidoscopic mix of alliances, rivalries and overlapping crises. In the past, presidents have viewed the region through the prism of the Cold War, terrorism or Israel,...

Proponents of the ban argue that it is justified by the constitution, which prohibits any law contradicting Islam. But some opponents argue that it also violates the same constitution which guarantees the traditions of religious minorities.

    War with Russia? So suggests John McCain, in so many words. In advocating for decisive action in Syria, the Senator insinuates he is OK with a head-on collision with Russia. And the media report this ‘threat’ as though it might actually spark a nuclear war. While the situation is tense and even volatile, could it really spark a nuclear war? Unlikely. Along the southeast coast, a hurricane threatens destruction. Like Sandy in 2012, it overshadows a looming election – at least for a few days in the news cycle.

Moreover, those offering to become suicide bombers ranked on average in the more educated group, said the newly released study titled “Economic and Social Inclusion to Prevent Violent Extremism”. The study, which aimed to identify socio-economic traits that might explain why some are drawn to the Syria-based extremist group, made clear that poverty and deprivation were not at the root of support for the group.

    The best secular argument in the world against evolution is the Progressive Movement. While it is a movement, the only direction it is going perfectly follows Newton's Second Law, moving America and the world from a relative state of order, to complete disorder. One must only look to the policies and practices of those champions of Progressivism to see how the tenets of this movement tear down not only the very basis of the family, but the structure and guidelines for living as given to us by God in Scripture.

Churches need to be prepared to deal with this issue and stand strong. In geopolitics, the focus is on Israel, Russia, Turkey and what used to be called Syria. You will see, that, indeed, the handwriting is on the wall.

    Severe fighting in Hasakah, in north-east Syria, continues between Syrian government forces and U.S. advised Kurdish YPG groups. It is still unclear why these clashes broke out after years of mostly peaceful co-existence in the city. These clashes convince Turkey that the danger of a Kurdish state creation is imminent. This will unite the Turkish, Syrian, Iranian and Iraqi hostile positions towards such plans. This unity ends the dreams of an independent Kurdish nation. The YPG declared that it wants all Syrian government forces to leave Hasakah. But those forces are the sole protection of the large Assyrian (Christian) and...

Hillary's foreign policy mistakes -- even traitorist activity -- in the Middle East are "reckless" in two senses, for they show: 1) a careless lack of attention to detail, and 2) a coldness or lack of caring about what happens to the people her actions affect and even our Nation.

The soon-to-be Nobel Peace Prize laureate would make the U.S. liked in the Middle East. Then, terrorism would decrease. But, as with his approach to racial relations, Obama's remedies proved worse than the original illness.

    Dr. Khlifa Al-Makhrazi. The head of the Family Consultative Council in Dubai, speaking on Sky News Arabia TV, discussed the new Pokémon Go rage. Dr. Al-Makhrazi declared that playing this game is prohibited, in keeping with a recent fatwa by Al-Azhar and by "some jurisprudents." He further explained that Pokémon Go is "genuinely and directly" linked to Darwinism and to the theory of evolution. He concluded by saying that anybody playing the game is a spy. The interview aired on July 14

    Speaking on Mayadeen TV on June 21, Egyptian author Muhammad Al-Mansi Qandil said that "Israel is a germ that was planted in the Arab body in 1948" and that "ever since, the Arab body has been plagued with the Israel disease." That is why, he said, "all the [Arab] regimes that were established came out deformed, we produced deformed development projects, and we entered wars that were beyond our capabilities."
  • Why I talked about peace through strength with clarity

    Look what's happening now without it When I ran for president, I summed up my thinking on foreign policy with the term “peace through strength with clarity.” To help demonstrate what this meant, we created a map that clearly labeled certain nations. Britain was a friend. Russia was a rival. Various nations in the Middle East represented threats. As you might expect, the political media mocked this as simple-minded, which I still believe is hilariously ironic coming from some of the most simple-minded people you will ever have the misfortune of meeting. But what’s happening now helps to demonstrate why...
  • What if Obama Is Wrong About Islam

    A central tenet of President Obama’s argument regarding our national security is that we should not chastise all Muslims. He repeats often that Islam is a religion of peace. What we need to examine is whether that is just something he states over and over again -- hoping Americans will accept it as fact -- or whether that is actually true. First, before anyone jumps off the high board let’s determine the parameters. Almost everyone reading this column and/or across the world wants to believe that Islam is a religion of peace. Except, of course, for some wing-nuts: some people...

    Foreign Policy Initiative ^ | June 30, 2016 | Tzvi Kahn
    Nearly one year ago, the United States and its international partners reached a landmark agreement with Iran that would curtail Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for robust sanctions relief. In multiple speeches, interviews, and congressional hearings that followed, U.S. officials defended the accord, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), by hailing its intrusive inspections regime, pledging to continue sanctioning Iran for non-nuclear misbehavior, and asserting that the deal may spur the regime to moderate its policies. This FPI Analysis evaluates these claims by compiling the administration’s own statements in defense of the agreement, and comparing them...
  • FBI: People knew Chattanooga, TN July 16 shooter was radicalized, failed to alert authorities

    The Chattanooga Times Free Press ^ | 6/30/2016 | Shelly Bradbury
    The 24-year-old Muslim man who carried out the July 16 terrorist attack in Chattanooga was radicalized for at least a year before he opened fire on two military sites and killed five U.S. service members, an FBI agent told the Times Free Press today. The FBI believes people who knew Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez knew he was becoming radicalized before the attack, but failed to report Abdulazeez to authorities, Special Agent Ed Reinhold said. Abdulazeez was radicalized online before he took a July 2014 trip to the Middle East to visit family and discussed committing jihad before he carried out the...
  • NH Townhall Attendee Doesn't Want To Help Israel Anymore; Trump's Response is HUGE!

    Looking at the man who asked this question, I won't say he was a plant to throw the presumptive GOP nominee off track, but I will say there are some American voters who do not want to defend Israel anymore, but that won't be the policy of Donald Trump. This elderly gentleman was able to mention two issues to Trump before he sat down. One of them was about the sanctity of life and which Trump agreed to. The second one is where the man said the following: I opposed to our wasting our military in the Middle East, on...

    This man is a real-life hero. Sadly, we don't yet know whether he made it out in time. It goes without saying that we can write many terrible stories about the terror attack at Atatürk Airport in Istanbul yesterday. Dozens of people died -- at least 36, and possibly as many as 50 -- and as many as 150 innocent travellers were injured. There is a story behind every single one of those deaths: a story that, sadly, was ended prematurely because of the actions of a few radical Muslims who hate all those who dare have different views than...

    Israel and Turkey on Sunday reached agreement to normalize ties, a senior Israeli official said, to end a six-year rift over the Israeli navy’s killing of 10 Turkish pro-Palestinian activists who tried to sail to the blockaded Gaza Strip in 2010. The Turkish foreign ministry had no immediate comment on the deal but an announcement on the restoration of ties was expected on Monday at 1000 GMT by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in Rome, and Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim in Ankara. Netanyahu travelled to Rome on Sunday to meet US Secretary of State John Kerry and Israeli and Turkish...
