    Is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi losing her grip on the Democratic Party? Students at Georgetown University apparently think so. Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips visited the campus in Washington, D.C., to ask people about the intra-party struggle between the old guard, like Pelosi (D-Calif.), and more progressive, far-left lawmakers like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her outspoken freshmen colleagues. Students were asked: “Between Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who do you view as the face of the Democrat Party?” The results went overwhelmingly in the freshman congresswoman's favor. “She’s got the people. We’re in a time of extremes, she’s pulling pretty...

    Palestinian Authority refuses to condemn terror - while Hamas passes out sweets. Sunday began as any other for Sgt. Gal Keidan but the 19-year-old soldier didn’t have a chance. He had no reason to suspect that the Palestinian approaching him as he waited at the Ariel junction in the Samaria District (northern West Bank) was going to produce a large knife and begin stabbing. Normal people don’t go on stabbing sprees. But Omar Abu Laila, the Palestinian stabber, was anything but normal. He was a product of a depraved culture steeped in gore, religious zealotry and vitriolic Jew-hatred. From the...

    In Germany this week, a regional court ruled that the 2014 firebombing of Bergisch Synagogue in Wuppertal, while a criminal act of arson, was not an anti-Semitic incident. The judge had upheld a lower court ruling deemed that the three Palestinian immigrants who had thrown Molotov cocktails at the synagogue were merely calling “attention to the Gaza conflict.” Because nothing shows concern for the Middle East peace process like trying to burn down a Jewish house of worship with homemade incendiary devices. The three men, who had admitted to the authorities that they were motivated by hatred of Israel, were...

    The Palestinian Authority has reportedly informed the United States government that it is waiving all American financial aid due to a recent anti-terror law that could open PA officials to lawsuits. According to Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot, Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah informed the US of the decision in a letter sent to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in December. The letter directly connected the PA’s decision to the 2018 Anti-Terrorism Clarification Act (ATCA), which would expand the jurisdiction of American anti-terror laws, giving victims of terrorism the ability to sue any entity responsible for providing funds for terrorist activity....
