    [SNIP] Western leaders should also pause to reconsider the old habit of keeping Israel on the sidelines. Excluding a country for no other reason than the reluctance of others to fight alongside it undermines the very premise of the anti-Islamic State coalition, which claims the radical jihadists are a menace against which everybody should rally regardless of petty interests and selfish calculations.......... ..........And yet, the question of Israeli participation deserves a hearing. It deserves it first and foremost because Israel, like all other countries in the region, has a stake in fighting against evildoers. It cannot urge France or the...

    Valerie Jarrett is the most powerful figure in the White House, rivalling President Obama in the scope of her influence over the fate of the Republic. Her personal Secret Service detail attests to the importance of her role in our government – in a position that is unelected and unconfirmed by the Senate. She has served as godmother of Barack Obama’s political and personal life, from introducing him to his future wife Michelle Robinson to integrating him into Chicago’s political machine and power structure. Professor Paul Kengor provides fascinating details about her background, and that of other key members of...

    As promised by President Eisenhower the United Nations Security Council went into emergency session on October 30, 1956. Both the United States and Soviet Union introduced resolutions calling on Israel to cease its attack and pull back to the 1949 armistice lines. The United States resolution called on other nations to not use force or threaten to use force in the situation (clearly aimed at France and Britain). It also called for sanctions against Israel until she complied with the resolution. Both resolutions were vetoed by France and Britain. Eventually the Yugoslav delegate asked the council to use a procudural...

    Suez's lesson David Frum National Post Saturday, July 29, 2006 Fifty years ago this past week, on July 26, 1956, the Egyptian dictator Gamal Abdel Nasser nationalized the Suez Canal. Nasser's act would lead to an international crisis, a regional war and ultimately to the resignation of a British prime minister. "Suez" would become a lesson and a warning against Western meddling in the Middle East. But the lessons and warnings of Suez look very different after 9/11. In 1956, the Suez Canal was owned by the British government and a consortium of British and French private investors. Two-thirds...
