    Sen. Bob Menendez (D., N.J.) came out against the recently inked Iran deal on Tuesday and said he would vote to reject it, dealing a major blow to the White House, which has been aggressively lobbying key Democrats to support the accord. ďI have looked into my own soul and my devotion to principle may once again lead me to an unpopular course, but if Iran is to acquire a nuclear bomb, it will not have my name on it,Ē Menendez said in a major address Tuesday afternoon, according to an advance copy of the text obtained by the Washington...

    Europe is a ďvery weak continent lacking the willpower to stand up and confront the evil that Iran represents,Ē declared the former commander of British forces in Afghanistan, Col. Richard Kemp on Monday. Speaking to The Algemeiner, Kemp called the nuclear deal struck by world powers including the U.K., France and Germany, and Iran, ďappeasement,Ē comparing the situation to 1930ís and and 1940ís Europe, where a series of treaties between world powers ultimately led to the outbreak of World War II. He said there is a ďdeafening silenceĒ in Europe and a lack of leadership to stand up to Iran...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 8/17/15 12:50 PM
    Israel Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer on Monday compared the Iran nuclear agreement to a huge storm that's threatening Israel and the entire region. "What we see is a tornado coming at us that's going to knock out the whole village," Dermer said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." The Obama administration has been pressing Israel to outline what other steps it might take to put Israel at ease once the deal is implemented. But Israel continues to warn that the deal would pave Iran's way to a nuclear bomb, and also ease the conventional weapons ban now in place...

    If rallies could vote, the Iran deal would lose in a landslide. Supporters of the dealĖwho consist of a small minority of the Iranian expatriate community, and the radical left fringeĖhave held several rallies across the country in recent weeks. The largest of these, in Los Angeles, reached 200 participantsĖa tiny fraction of the 800,000-strong Iranian-American community in the city. This weekendís rally in Washington, D.C. reached 100 participants. Around 80 gathered in San Diego. In contrast, over 10,000 rallied against the Iran deal in Times Square last month, and 1,000 gathered at a Los Angeles rally.

    Over the past two years, the belligerence between Russia and NATO has grown to alarming levels. Between the Western backed color revolution in Ukraine, Russian aircraft violating NATO airspace, sanctions, and the provocative training exercises that both sides have been conducted on a routine basis, itís abundantly clear that these nations are seriously considering the possibility of war. But if such a war comes to pass, will the US Military be up to the task of fighting the Russians? The Pentagon doesnít seem to think so. Earlier this week, two officials from the Department of Defense approached The Daily Beast,...

    As of Wednesday morning, nearly 40,000 people had signed an online petition calling for the arrest of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on war crimes charges during his visit to the United Kingdom next month. The petition, created on the British Parliamentís E-petitions website, says, ďBenjamin Netanyahu is to hold talks in London this September. Under international law he should be arrested for war crimes upon arrival in the U.K. for the massacre of over 2,000 civilians in 2014.Ē According to British law, the government must respond to all petitions that get more than 10,000 signatures, while a petition that...

    Israeli Ambassador to the U.S, Ron Dermer on Sunday compared Israelís unified stance on the Iran nuclear deal and support for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in his campaign against the deal to the times when Moses led the Jews out of Egypt to the promised land. In an interview on CNN with Fareed Zakaria, Sunday morning, Dermer said that he had no doubt President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are being sincere when they say they believe the Iran deal is good for the U.S. and Israel; however, ďWe just disagree with their judgment. We think this...

    Pat Buchanan has for years been such a virulent opponent of Israel that he has frequently been accused of anti-Semitism, and this column condemning Benjamin Netanyahu for supposedly interfering in Americaís internal affairs by opposing the Iran deal is not going to erase that impression. The paleocon Right hates Israel with such abiding passion that it is increasingly self-contradictory: for a small government advocate like Buchanan defending Barack Obama and tacitly supporting a deal that threatens not just Israel, but the U.S. as well, manifests a moral myopia of catastrophic immensity. But itís no surprise. Iíve noted before how the...
