    It’s not just the U.S.’s porous borders with Mexico Americans have to worry about, it’s also corrupt immigration officials in other countries that should be a major cause for concern. According to a new report from Honduran newspaper La Prensa, officials in the country are being paid off to register foreigners as legal residents, which gives them access to documents that can then be used to enter the United States and other western nations. The Center for Immigration Studies reports (emphasis mine): Honduras' National Registry of Persons (RNP)confirmedthat hundreds of Palestinian, Syrian, and citizens of other Arab nations were fraudulently...

    A Fake Museum for a Fake Palestine The Palestinian Museum is as empty as its soul. May 20, 2016 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. 150 years ago, Mark Twain visited Muslim-occupied Israel and wrote of unpeopled deserts and mounds of barrenness,of forlorn and untenanted cities. Palestine is desolate,he concluded. One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings. The same is true of the Palestinian Museum which opened with much fanfare and one slight problem.

    Truth Revolt ^ | Caroline Glick
    Two wars today are being waged against Jewish students on American university campuses. One is substantive, the other is institutional. The plight of the Jews at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island is emblematic of both. The purpose of the substantive war is to deny Jews their freedom as Jews. As the guarantor of Jewish freedom, Israel is the subject of a systematic, multidimensional assault, carried out everywhere on campuses. On a growing number of campuses in the United States, the only Jews who can safely express their views on Israel are those who champion Israels destruction. Those who support...

    Top Hezbollah commander Mustafa Badreddine has been killed, the Lebanese group said on Friday, the biggest blow to the Iranian-backed organization since its military chief was killed in 2008. Badreddine, 55, was one of the highest ranking officials in the group, and assessed by the US government to be responsible for Hezbollahs military operations in Syria, where it is fighting alongside the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. A Hezbollah statement did not say when, where or how he was killed, though it cited him saying he would return from Syria either victorious or as a martyr.

    I dont know why progressives hate Israel. But it is undeniable that they do. There is a palpable contempt, the anti-Semitism of our day, bigotry dressed up as compassion. They talk about Palestinians, and identify with their cause, and you can almost hear them cheering the suicide vests. Whether from the college classroom or the black pulpit or the progressive stump speech, there is a strident anti-Israeli theme to the prattlings of the American left. And protests to the contrary notwithstanding, it is inseparable from a contempt for the people and religion of Israel. To my ear, in all honesty,...

Bokova said Palmyra carries the memory of the Syrian people, and the values of cultural diversity, tolerance and openness that have made this region a cradle of civilization. Bokova added, The deliberate destruction of heritage is a war crime, and UNESCO will do everything in its power to document the damage so that these crimes do not go unpunished.

    WASHINGTON AND JERUSALEM - President Bush seemed poised early this week to put Palestinian statehood on the fast track. But by announcing a new policy of retaking Palestinian-controlled land in response to acts of terrorism, Israel appears to be changing the timetable if not the outcome of the Bush administration's efforts. Taken after this week's devastating suicide bombing in Jerusalem, the Israeli policy might be seen as a natural outgrowth of a strategy set forth by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon since he took office in March 2001. But the announcement also throws a wrench in US plans to...

On Sunday afternoon, Adais butchered Meir in her home, in front of her children. Whether Adais Sr. is really happy that his son will rot in prison is less important than the fact that he said what he said to his home crowd. He knows that his audience thinks his son is a hero. And so he played to his audience. Since last September when the Palestinians began their current terrorist onslaught,...

Benjamin Netanyahu said Margot Wallstrom's remarks were "outrageous... immoral and... stupid". Ms Wallstrom had called for "thorough and credible investigations" into the deaths. Some 155 Palestinians - mostly attackers, Israel says - have been killed in unrest since October. In that time, 26 Israelis have been killed in stabbing, shooting or car-ramming attacks by Palestinians or Israeli-Arabs. The attackers who have been killed have either been shot dead by their victims or security forces. Others have been arrested. On Tuesday,...

Thomas Pickering, a former US ambassador to Israel, wrote to Clinton on December 18, 2011 that she should recommend sparking Palestinian demonstrations, led by female protesters, to force Israel to re-enter peace negotiations. The protests, which also called on Israeli Jews to hold parallel demonstrations against the government, should be led by and attended by...

    Obama/Kerry seek to renew funding to organization that accepts state" not recognized by U.S. – despite law forbidding this. The State Department has asked Congress for nearly a quarter of a billion dollars to fund UNESCO--the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization--even though this is currently against the law. The law states that the U.S. may not pay dues to any UN organization that grants the PLO full membership as a state--unless such a state has resulted from an Israel-PA negotiated settlement. Since 2011, when UNESCO voted to admit the "State of Palestine" as a member despite the fact

    New poll finds 67% support wave of stabbing attacks, 65% want Abbas out and Hamas in his place, and 55% say no to two-state solution.

A full 67% back the use of knives, while 66% of those asked said an armed intifada with guns would "serve Palestinian national interests in ways that negotiations could not."

    George Washington University President Steven Knapp issued a statement through his office after a flag controversy flared up at one of the university dorm halls. A student, who is Palestinian, hung a Palestinian flag outside his dorm room window at Shenkman Hall. It was reported to the administration police department because it was prohibited that an object be hung outside windows on campus. The student complied and the police officer wrote a report. But, what happened was that the report triggered an automatic warning letter to the student. The student believed he was being unduly singled out for having a...

    Leave to Barack Obama to turn what should be a celebration of the Jewish people’s survival in the face of adversity into a politicized rant celebrating the cause of the Palestinians, who want to “drive them into the sea,” as has been promised since the birth of the modern State of Israel. Daniel Greenfield reports on what should have been the highlight of this year’s White House ceremony at Front Page Magazine: …the White House chose Susan Talve to light the Menorah. Talve is a member of the anti-Israel group T'ruah which is currently promoting assorted "soft BDS" programs. She's...

    Awww, what a sweet little girl. Remember: opposing this and calling it savagery is “racist,” “Islamophobic” and “anti-Muslim.” “Little girl demonstrates art of stabbing: ‘Stab! Stab! Stab! Stab! Stab!,'” by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik, Palestinian Media Watch, December 9, 2015: Palestinian Media Watch documents the Palestinian Authority and Fatah leadership’s messages to its population, showing both the PA ideology as well as how it directs the population to act. The current Palestinian terror wave is an excellent example of how the Palestinian population has responded to the leadership’s message. Mahmoud Abbas and other PA leaders sparked the current...

    As long as Israeli Jews remain the invisible victims of terror, victims of an invisible malevolent Palestinian agenda, do not expect Israelis to offer gestures or concessions for peace. Facts: The invisible victims of terror – Israeli Jews. The perpetrators of a Jewish genocide – Palestinian Arabs. The cause of their terror – to destroy Israel and kill Jews in the name of Palestinian liberation and Jihad. How do we prove these facts? As follows; Mahmoud Abbas, on official Palestinian TV on September 16, infamously incited Palestinian Arabs with a call to spill blood. “We won’t allow Jews with their...

    In the month of October alone, Israel suffered 609 attacks. The world's only Jewish state has suffered almost daily attacks from their Palestinian neighbors (mostly stabbings) after unfounded rumors of changes on the Temple Mount were circulated over social media. Yet, the big three ABC, NBC, and CBS found it hard to blame radical Islam for the surge in violence, as noted by the Media Research Center's Newsbusters division:3 Month Failure: Nets Make No Mention of 'Islam' in Israeli Terror Attacks In the three months leading up to the ISIS's deadly Paris attacks, the ABC CBS and NBC evening news...

    Britain's leading anti-Israel organization has had its bank accounts closed, after it was revealed it may have been "inadvertently" funding Palestinian terrorism. The radical Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) - which counts UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn as one of its patrons - was informed by the Co-operative Bank that its accounts were being closed due to the "high risk" destinations of its funds, many of which are donated to Hamas-linked agencies and other extremist groups in Gaza, Judea and Samaria. ...

    Legitimizes and rewards Mahmoud Abbas' hate-education and incitement - which must be uprooted as a prerequisite to real, durable peace--and therefore indirectly fuels Palestinian terrorism Secretary of State John Kerry’s November 24, 2015 visit to Jerusalem confirmed his determination to reinvent “the energetic, youthful and forward looking Middle East” in accordance with his own worldview, irrespective of Middle East reality. Kerry recycled well-intentioned, but failed, assessments and tactics, further eroding the US posture of deterrence and US power projection among pro-US Arab countries. On October 28, 2015, Secretary John Kerry presented his vision of US policy in the Middle East,...

    Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom linked Palestinian grievances with Israel to the Islamist terror attacks that killed 129 people in Paris. "Obviously, we have reason to be worried, not just in Sweden but across the world because there are so many that are being radicalized. Here, once again, we are brought back to situations like the one in the Middle East, where not least, the Palestinians see that there is not a future. We must either accept a desperate situation or resort to violence," Wallstrom said in a television interview. In response to Wallstrom's comments, Israel summoned Sweden's ambassador to...

    The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) took issue with how Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) handled a hearing on Middle East terrorism. The hearing entitled, "Justice Forsaken: How the Federal Government Fails the American Victims of Iranian and Palestinian Terrorism," featured witnesses describing attacks by Palestinian suicide bombers against innocent victims. PLO spokesman Haikil Juze complained that "these hearings are one-sided and biased. Contrary to the propaganda spouted by Cruz and his witnesses, Jews are not innocent. The Quran makes that clear. It is every Muslim's sacred duty to strike down these minions of Satan wherever, whenever, and however they can." Juze...
