    The organizers of an anti-Nazi event in Sweden face controversy Monday, after declining to invite the Jewish community to the event. "Umeå against Nazism" will run in the city of Umeå on Tuesday and Wednesday, commemorating Kirstallnacht, or the "Night of Broken Glass," the massive 1938 pogrom against Austrian and German Jews which is seen as marking the start of the holocaust. But, absurdly, Jews will not be invited. The organizers claim that inviting the Jewish community presents a security risk, reports, citing anti-Semitic and anti-Israel protests present at past events.

    A 38 year-old man was assaulted in Malmö, Sweden, on Sunday - for the sole crime of hanging an Israeli flag in his window. The assailants broke the man's window first, prompting him to seek the perpetrators, police said. "After that the man went out onto the street to see what was going on. Then he was attacked and it was on the basis of the flag. That is the information we have at present," police told the TT news agency Monday. They added that ten people chased the man from his building, wielding iron pipes. He managed to narrowly...

    A statement issued by the European Union on Tuesday seemed to suggest it supports Palestinian Authority Arabs’ rights to throw stones during non-violent protests. The statement, released on Tuesday by the spokesperson of Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, criticized Israel for convicting PA Arab Bassem Tamimi of dispatching stone-throwers and protesting illegally. An Israeli court convicted Tamimi on Sunday, according to an AFP report. The 45-year-old was charged with soliciting stone-throwing based on evidence that he directed such incidents from the roof-tops. He was arrested on March 24, 2011, AFP reported,...

    Commentary Magazine ^ | 4/17/12 | Jonathan S. Tobin
    Laura Rozen’s account of the behind-the-scenes action during the Iranian nuclear talks in Istanbul undermines the notion that President Obama is in control of the P5+1 diplomatic process that he fiercely defended during the weekend. As Rozen’s reporting makes clear, it is the European Union’s Catherine Ashton who was clearly in charge of the affair, and as long as that fierce critic of Israel is calling the shots, it’s unlikely the Iranians will surrender their nuclear ambitions. Indeed, by championing Iran’s right to nuclear development, which could be ultimately used for military purposes, Ashton may be steering the negotiations toward...

    The Maltese government has this year witsessed a substantial upsurge in illegal immigration. Around 1,200 illegal immigrants, primarily from North African and sub-sahara African states, have landed in Malta since January. This is already twice as much as during the whole of 2004, a Maltese spokesman told EUobserver. "That means that for every two people born in Malta, there is one illegal immigrant", the spokesman said. "If the trend continues at the current pace, this ratio will be three to two by the end of this year", he added... Amnesty International in a report this year criticised conditions in Maltese...

    Top News Story Iraq and Iran It may be a positive sign that when campaigning began for elections scheduled for Jan. 30 in Iraq, the first hot-button issue raised by Iraqi politicians was the specter of Iranian influence. American officials as well as Arab leaders are breaking no new ground when they warn in public about Iranian meddling in Iraq. They are fearful of Tehran for geopolitical reasons. They don't want Iranian-style theocracy to spread beyond Iran's borders. But it is an exhilarating novelty for Iraqis to be open about such a politically sensitive subject without fear of being...

Bush presided over the most sweeping redesign of U.S. strategy since the days of F.D.R. Over the next four, his basic direction should remain the same: restoring security in a more dangerous world. Some midcourse corrections, however, are overdue. Washington should remember the art of speaking softly and the need for international legitimacy. John Lewis Gaddis is Robert A.

    Top News Story Choices on Iran New York Sun Staff Editorial December 23, 2004 President Bush surely mis-underestimated himself when he spoke, during a year-end press conference this week, of his reliance on European allies to achieve American aims in Iran. "We're relying upon others, because we've sanctioned ourselves out of influence with Iran," Mr. Bush said. It can't be a good sign when the president of a superpower is going around claiming he lacks influence. It's not even accurate.The fact is that there are plenty of ways in which Mr. Bush could exercise influence on Iran. He could...

That was the word at the end of November. So, we can all stop worrying, right? Not so fast. Not even one month later, and the mullahs have created enough exceptions to fly a Shahab-3 through.

    No longer will Shiites be assassinated by Saddam's Sunnis if they dare to tell their followers to worship G-d in their own unique way. No longer will Kurds worry about whether their political acts will lead to their children and wives dying unimaginably gruesome deaths. A Stalinist leader who allowed Sunnis to rule by tyranny is in prison, the oppressed are on the verge of being liberated by our country, and the New York Times is bitching about it. What's wrong with this picture?
