    President Barack Obama, speaking in Germany on Monday, said we’re fortunate to be living in the “most peaceful” era in human history. […] “That may surprise young people who are watching TV or looking at your phones,” he said, “and it seems like only bad news comes through every day, but consider it’s been decades since the last war between major powers.” […] “Around the world we’re more tolerant, with more opportunity for women and gays and lesbians as we push back on bigotry and prejudice,” he said.

    Our guest author All right-thinking people know that Islam is the religion of peace and tolerance. Therefore, even though some instances of violent extremism may involve Muslims, Islam obviously has nothing to do with it. Imam Obama and President Erdogan of Turkey have told us that repeatedly. Only Islamophobes claim that there is a connection.Often, acts erroneously deemed to be "Islamic terrorism" are the results of mental or other disorders. For example Khaled al-Hamada, a brave freedom fighter in Syria, liked to feast on the organs of infidels enemies he had helped to kill. It was neither Islam's fault...

    Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas said Thursday that he still sees Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu as a partner for peace. Speaking to journalist Ilana Dayan on Channel 2’s “Uvda” program, Abbas also claimed that the PA’s security forces fight terrorism and go as far as to search backpacks of Palestinian children for knives that can be used for stabbing attacks. “I would have to be crazy to tell my son that [carrying a knife] is the right thing. Or that these knife attacks are the right thing to do,” he said, adding, “You know, we, our security services, go...

The reason there is so much un-peace is because of people like Obama who wants to get down on his knees and pray to those who attack us instead of beating the **** out of them. This only brings more un-peace, and more die. Certainly we have not had more peace under Obama, but Trump will bring Peace with Justice. Go Trump! I am certainly not one to discuss who is a great...

    President Reuven Rivlin met at the White House on Wednesday evening with US President Barack Obama for the first time since he assumed the presidency. President Obama stressed the meeting was "an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bonds between Israel and the US," adding that "our commitment to Israel's security is an important pillar of US foreign policy." The remark was likely an attempt to convey a clear message of American support for Israel, despite strains between the two countries earlier in the year over the Iran nuclear deal. Obama also took the opportunity to condemn Palestinian violence, urging Palestinian...

    Ahead of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Washington next week, the Obama administration privately and publicly has conceded that a lasting peace in the Mideast isn't possible before he leaves office in 2017. Administration officials said in a conference call on Thursday that Obama will likely press Netanyahu to sustain efforts that could someday allow Israel and the Palestinians to co-exist in a two-state situation. But such a situation is beyond hope to occur in the 14 months before Obama steps down as president in January 2017.

    Tel Aviv (AFP) - Thousands of Israelis rallied Saturday for fresh Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, on the eve of the 20th anniversary of the killing of prime minister Yitzhak Rabin. The demonstrators chanted "Jews and Arabs don't want to hate each other" and "Israel, Palestine, two states for two peoples" as they came together amid a new upswing in violence which makes prospects for peace in the decades-old conflict look deeply gloomy. They gathered at Tel Aviv's Rabin Square, the site where the Nobel peace laureate was gunned down by a rightwing Jewish extremist at the age of 73 on November...

North Korea’s foreign ministry made the statement one day after President Obama and South Korean President Park Geun-hye said they were ready to open talks with Pyongyang on sanctions if they were serious about dissolving its nuclear program, according to Reuters. “If the United States insists on taking a different path, the Korean peninsula will only see our unlimited nuclear deterrent being strengthened further,” the North said in a statement.

    Although claiming repeatedly that Islam is the religion of peace, tolerance, otherwise good and therefore welcome in America, the media are horrified that Donald Trump failed to "correct" the "highly offensive" claim by a member of the audience at a New Hampshire rally that Obama is a Muslim. The media and others also seem to be offended by the parallel claim that Obama is not a Christian. However, Islam and Christianity have very different theological foundations and share very few beliefs. Hence, if Obama is a Muslim, He cannot also be a Christian. True, Obama has occasionally claimed to be a Christian; if He...

    The depressing outcome of the tantrum of political correctness in Israel after the still unsolved arson made headlines and lead to outcries from the left and some of their useful idiots on the right, is that Israelis will be further endangered in the fight against terrorism. The IDF has changed its open-fire instructions for warriors serving in Judea and Samaria, making it even more difficult for them to fire at terrorists. The new instructions determine that only in cases of real danger to life may the soldier fire at the terrorist's lower limbs. This is a radical change in the...

The audio message posted on militant websites features a voice that sounds like al-Baghdadi's exhorting all Muslims to take up arms and fight on behalf of the group's self-styled caliphate.

A final Israeli-Palestinian accord "seems distant now," Obama said from Camp David, reiterating the US position that an agreement recognizing two states for two peoples is "absolutely vital" for greater Middle East peace. "Since we're up here at Camp David, I think it's important to...

Let’s look at four aspects of how the Lord lays this foundation.I. The Paradoxical Prelude - The...

    I was listening to a sermon by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones not long ago in which he pointed out that assurance is one of the most prominent subjects in the New Testament. Virtually every New Testament epistle was written to address some doubt, answer some question, settle some uncertainty—all of them aimed at stimulating or reinforcing the assurance of believers. Scripture encourages us to have assurance. It is not inherently brash or presumptuous to be confident in your faith.Shortly after reading that comment by Lloyd-Jones, while doing some research on a totally different theme, I had occasion to review The Canons...

    Dennis Ross and David Makovsky in Israel’s Drive Toward Self-Destruction, argue that Netanyahu must offer up hope to Palestinians or face a revived de-legitimization movement. They’re certainly right to point out that the delegitimation movement will grow, but they are wrong to suggest that the answer is for Israel to offer hope to the Palestinians. How facile is that? They argue that what Israel needs to do is begin capitulating even before the negotiations commence, let alone, conclude. They want Israel to give up its bargaining chips for nothing in return. The Palestinians don’t hope to be given a state,...

    Obama is insisting on the creation of Palestine with a border separating it from Israel based on the ’67 lines plus swaps. In doing so he is ignoring UNSC resolution 242 which grants Israel the right to secure and recognized borders and does not demand a full retreat to the ’67 lines. He is also threatening to allow the UNSC to impose such borders on Israel thereby circumventing his oft stated insistence that all matters are to be negotiated between the parties. Ben-Dror Yemini, writing in YNET, which is left of center and Netanyahu's arch enemy, makes the case, "Given...

    Migration, the mass movement of communities for natural, economic, political, religious reasons or because of oppression, dates back almost as far as the history of mankind. It is certainly a difficult thing to leave the land where one was born and is familiar with and to move somewhere entirely different. Forced relocation is the most ruthless and painful form of migration. World history is full of stories of forced migration in which millions of people were obliged to leave their homes and live in places they had never been before. The violence and troubles suffered by these people forced from...

    A prominent Iraqi politician and the longtime head of the De-Ba'athification Committee, Mithal al-Alusi, survived an apparent attempt on his life when armed men fired on his car on the morning of 8 February. Two of al-Alusi's sons -- Ayman and Jamal -- and a bodyguard who were inside his vehicle were killed, however, when the assailants struck just outside al-Alusi's Baghdad home. Radio Free Iraq (RFI) spoke with al-Alusi, who is secretary of Iraq's Democratic Umma Party [Hizb al-Umma al-'Iraqi al-Dimuqrati], after the incident. The following is an edited transcript of that interview. Al-Alusi: Again, the ghosts of death...

    The Cripplegate ^ | October 3, 2014 | Mike Riccardi
    October 3, 2014 Restless till We Rest in You by Mike Riccardi Many Christians recognize the name of Augustine of Hippo from his valiant defense of the biblical doctrine of divine sovereignty against the man-centered heresy of the British monk Pelagius. And we know that the Reformers made exceedingly frequent references to Augustine’s work as they fought against the man-centeredness of the Roman Catholic Church. But what many don’t know about Augustine was his consistent emphasis on the centrality of the affections—and particularly joy—in the believer’s life. In fact, he even defined love for God in terms of enjoying...

    Balloon-ey!: Vatican takes wrong lesson from dove attack by Daniel Clark On the last Sunday of January, the Vatican released the balloons of peace from St. Peter’s Square. You probably recognize this as a biblical allusion to the Great Flood, when Noah released a balloon that returned to him with an olive leaf in its beak. Mind you, balloons don’t have beaks, which is what made it so miraculous. Pope John Paul II had started an annual tradition of releasing two doves on that particular day, but last year when Pope Francis let the birds loose, a crow and a...

    More than “theoretical discussions,” what unites Christians is encounter, and a willingness to “challenge one another,” said Pope Francis as he marked the conclusion of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. “Christian unity will not be the fruit of subtle theoretical discussions in which each party tries to convince the other of the soundness of their opinions,” the Pope said during vespers at Saint Paul Outside the Walls Basilica on Jan. 25. “To plumb the depths of the mystery of God, we need one another, we need to encounter one another and to challenge one another under the guidance...
