    “America’s Rabbi” Shmuley Boteach pointed the finger at U.S. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and accused her of blatant anti-Semitism in a public, full-page ad printed in Sunday’s Washington Post just in time for this week’s 2019 American-Israel Public Affairs Committee Policy Conference in Washington DC. Boteach placed Omar’s own anti-Semitic words alongside some of the most anti-Semitic tropes of all time together with a full-length photo of the freshman Congresswoman. He brought along a copy of the attack ad to the AIPAC conference, waving it at anti-AIPAC demonstrators at the Washington Convention Center as they chanted “Shame on you!” at...

    Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer strongly pushed back against the anti-semitic label Republicans have been pushing on Democratic party, arguing that Israel needs a united front from its ally. “Not only is it demonstrably false to say Democrats are anti-Israel. It also hurts the Israel-US relationship,” Mr. Schumer said at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy conference Monday. “Those who seek to use Israel as a means of scoring political points do a disservice to both Israel and the United States.” His comments come after Democrats have struggled to address anti-semitic controversies surrounding some of its own freshman...

The Hernandez government had previously floated the possibility of moving the Honduran...

    One of the firmest rules in modern American politics these days is that candidates need to get out there and define themselves before somebody else gets a chance to do it for them. That seems to be a lesson that hasn’t been lost on California Senator and presidential hopeful Kamala Harris (D). Her greatest fear clearly appears to be the risk of being seen as part of the old Democratic establishment in an era of aggressive young socialists influencing their party. She made that point clear when she showed up for church services in Atlanta this weekend, talking about the...

    The Trump administration has backed Israel's claim to sovereignty over the Golan Heights. The move comes weeks before Israeli general elections and reverses the position U.S. administrations have held for decades. President Trump made the announcement via tweet Thursday. "After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel's Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!" the president wrote. Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in a 1967 war and annexed the territory, a move not recognized by the U.S. or...

The announcement came days before Trump was scheduled to meet at the White House with Netanyahu, who has urged top U.S. officials to make the move. --This breaking news report will...

Benjamin Netanyahu, who is up for re-election next month, was by Mr Trump's side as he signed the proclamation.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand is calling President Donald Trump a "coward" who "punches down" and says that he is "tearing apart the moral fabric of our country." Gillibrand is set to say even more about Trump on Sunday as she stands in front of one of his signature New York properties. In what her campaign is calling Gillibrand's first major speech as a presidential candidate, the New York senator says in prepared remarks that the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Manhattan is "a shrine to greed, division and vanity." The Associated Press obtained the...

    It won’t be “all about the Benjamins baby” for protesters outside the Woodland Hills Hilton tomorrow. That's where the Council on American Islamic Relations’ Los Angeles chapter will be holding its fourth annual “Valley banquet” fundraiser hosting controversial Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. Omar has generated attention and condemnation with her series of anti-Semitic remarks in recent weeks. But activists in L.A. are more concerned by her decision to raise money for various Islamist groups, some of which have been tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and others labeled designated as terrorist-linked by some foreign governments. CAIR-LA's executive director, Hussam Ayloush, is...

    U.S. Rep. Max Rose, a Jewish New York Democrat in his first term in Congress, apologized to visibly frustrated constituents at a town hall in Staten Island on Tuesday for not "protecting them" from fellow freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar's repeated use of "anti-Semitic tropes." Rose's comments came as Minnesota Democrats are seriously considering the prospect of supporting an unprecedented primary challenge against the 37-year-old Omar in 2020, following bipartisan condemnation of several of her remarks, according to officials and state representatives. Earlier this month, the House passed a bipartisan resolution condemning hate of all kinds in the wake of Omar's comments. But Democrats kept Omar's...

    Hitler murdered 6 million Jews, roughly two-thirds of the entire Jewish population of Europe. His National Socialist German Workers Party — the Nazis — performed unspeakable “experiments” on Jewish children. Fast-forward 80 years. President Donald Trump did something that Republican and Democrat presidents promised but never did. He moved the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, the Jews’ ancestral home. Even Charles Schumer, the Democrat minority leader of the Senate who disagrees with Trump on practically everything, stated, “I applaud President Trump.” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “Thank you, President Trump, for your leadership and friendship.” Now, other countries...

    You might realize you have a problem when your defense from the highest elected official in your party is that pathetically lame statement. There were so many bad parts of this episode – which is not nearly over -- that they need to be illuminated now that we have a smidgeon of separation. First, let’s start with an indisputable fact: the Congresswoman from Minnesota has been and is an anti-Semite. I can’t tell you specifically why or how she became such, but she is. Anyone who says she is not is delusional. That sad defense by Speaker Pelosi was just...

    A Gateway Pundit reporter attended the Council on American–Islamic Relations 4th Annual Valley Banquet in California on Saturday evening — and recorded Rep. Ilhan Omar’s stunning speech in which she urged the crowd to “raise hell,” get in stranger’s faces, and “make people uncomfortable.” Rep. Omar, who has faced backlash over her antisemitic remarks, was greeted with massive protests as she arrived at the event.The speech started off in a pretty standard fashion, with the Congresswoman acknowledging that it has been a very hard week for Muslims given the tragedy in New Zealand and saying how thankful she is to...

    Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Ilhan Omar appeared as the featured fundraiser for the CAIR Los Angeles chapter in Woodland Hills last night. CAIR is of course the fake civil rights organization and Muslim Brotherhood front/Hamas affiliate. Omar did not disappoint. She CAIRied on in her accustomed fashion. Omar, incidentally, told a mythical CAIR founding story in her remarks last night. I have posted the video below. Toward the end of her remarks last night (at about 18:00), Omar alluded to her criticism of Saudi Arabia in connection with the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. Omar presented herself as a neutral critic...

    ZAMBOANGA, Philippines — She was a Catholic math whiz with an M.B.A. from one of the best universities in the Philippines. He was the Muslim descendant of a sultanate family, schooled in computer science. The couple, Ellen Barriga and Mohammad Reza Kiram, could have served as the model of a modern interfaith marriage. Instead, they are poster children for how violent ideology transformed educated Filipinos into agents of death for the Islamic State. In 2015, Ms. Barriga and Mr. Kiram traveled to Syria to join the terrorist group, becoming key recruiters of other Southeast Asians, according to Philippine and American...

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s blackface scandal has largely dropped from public view, and one Democratic presidential hopeful says it’s time to move on. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota Democrat, said Sunday that “we have to move on” after being asked about Mr. Northam in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” **SNIP** “If we spend our whole time, Chuck, talking about what men did wrong, we are never going to talk about what women can do right, including running for president and winning,” she said. After Mr. Todd said that the Northam situation wasn’t a “great picture” for Democrats, Ms. Klobuchar...

    U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar faced hundreds of protesters Saturday outside a Southern California fundraising event for the local chapter of a major advocacy group representing Muslim-Americans. “Burn the Quran!," “Ilhan Omar, go to hell!” and “Shame on you, terrorists!" were among some of the messages shouted outside a Woodland Hills hotel where the Minnesota Democrat spoke at a fundraiser for the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) of Greater Los Angeles, according to a report. The town is about 25 miles northwest of downtown L.A. The protesters lined a sidewalk area, where they waved Israeli flags and denounced the freshman congresswoman...
