    Theresa May suffered an embarrassing moment today as she delivered a speech to a mostly empty room at the United Nations. The Prime Minister's attack on Donald Trump was heard by a handful of diplomats - with vacant seats far outnumbering the officials in the audience. It comes just a day after French President Emmanuel Macron drew a much larger audience to hear him speak to the UN General Assembly, held this week in New York. And it was packed to the rafters as Donald Trump delivered his 'rocket man' speech yesterday.

    Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon on Wednesday slammed UN General Assembly President Peter Thomson, who wore a scarf with the colors of the the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)’s flag. Thomson wore the scarf on Tuesday as the UN marked its annual “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People”. The special session, initiated by the Palestinian Authority’s UN delegation, is held annually on the anniversary of the UN Partition Plan of November 29, 1947, which led to the creation of the state of Israel, recognized by the UN. It is regularly used as an occasion to pass...

    Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi said in an interview that the Mideast region needs to cooperate to defeat a worsening terrorist threat that has led to a “ferocious war” in Egypt and created the danger of some countries “sliding into failure.” In a wide-ranging interview with The Associated Press Saturday night, el-Sissi also said that Syria should not be divided after its civil war, that the Egyptian military needs to be “augmented” to defeat terrorists fighting in the Sinai and Western Desert, and that efforts should be renewed to solve the Palestinian issue and expand Egypt’s nearly 40-year-peace with Israel to...
  • Obama at the UN: “United States is not and never will be at war with Islam. Islam teaches peace.”

    “Second, it is time for the world – especially Muslim communities – to explicitly, forcefully, and consistently reject the ideology of al Qaeda and ISIL.” As if they knew he would say this today (did they?), an international group of Muslim scholars today issued a purported refutation of the Islamic State’s understanding of Islam. Unfortunately, it is yet another farrago of detours, deceptions, half-truths and outright falsehoods. Will Muslim communities ever really reject the ideology of al Qaeda and the Islamic State? They haven’t yet in any way that would make even one jihadist lay down his arms and become...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu assumed a professorial role and – turning the UN General Assembly on Thursday into an “Intro to Nuclear Physics” class – illustrated through the use of a rudimentary graph where a red line needs to be drawn during Iran’s bomb-making process. But he did ensure that a picture of him drawing a red line on a sketch board illustration of a bomb will be on the front page of numerous newspapers Friday morning. And that was the prime minister’s goal at the UN: To make clear to the international public what he means when he says...

    September 22, 2012 OBAMA TO CONDEMN CHRISTIAN FILMMAKER BEFORE UNITED NATIONS John Nolte Not only are we seeing the White House and State Department call more attention to the Mohammed-mocking "Innocence of Muslims" than any terrorist network ever could've hoped for, but the President's indefensible scapegoating of the film and filmmaker to draw attention and blame away from U.S. security failures apparently knows no bounds. Next week, Obama will denounce the film in a speech before the United Nations General Assembly:National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor previews the president's speech to the UN General Assembly next week: "UNGA always provides...
  • Michael Loyd Jr. Leaves BYU; Is the Cougs' Recruiting Pool Shrinking?

    While most conversations about Brigham Young hoops generally start with Jimmer Fredette, one of the interesting ancillary characters in the Cougs' cast was Michael Loyd Jr...Loyd...came on late in the year. He had 19 points in a narrow loss to New Mexico when Fredette couldn't play in the second half of a critical game. He had 18 points in next game against Utah and most importantly, he put up 26 points in BYU's tourney win against Florida. That's great momentum to carry into Loyd Jr.'s junior season at BYU, right? Nope. He's leaving the program. The Salt Lake Tribune provides...
  • Breakthrough near in Honduras crisis: UN

    NEW YORK — The head of the United Nations General Assembly signalled Friday a breakthrough is imminent in talks to resolve the political crisis in Honduras. Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann spoke in New York as thousands of supporters of Honduras’s ousted president, Manuel Zelaya, held rallies in the Central American country. “I have a feeling that we are moving in that direction rather quickly,” the former Nicaraguan revolutionary, who is also a Catholic priest, told a news conference at the UN. Insiders suggested that a timetable had been laid out in which Zelaya, a rich landowner whose leftist policies led him...

    WASHINGTON -- Millions of American boys have dreamed of hitting a grand slam or pitching a no-hitter at Yankee Stadium because baseball's greatest have performed there. Talented musicians and singers aspire to New York's famed Carnegie Hall, for they know it represents the pinnacle of their profession. For gifted physicians and medical researchers, the Mount Everest of medicine is the Mayo Clinic. But certain institutions can bring out the worst in people. For the professional peddlers of anti-Americanism, haters of free enterprise, and true believers in global government, there is only one place that it really pays to perform: the...
