Victor Davis Hanson Victor Davis Hanson: Can Israel Survive?

Given the rise of radical Islam, the huge petrodollar wealth of the Middle East and lopsided demography, how has Israel so far survived?

Victor Davis Hanson Victor Davis Hanson: Can Israel Survive?

Israel is the only liberal democracy in the Middle East and North Africa. Eight million Israelis are surrounded by some 400 million Muslims in more than 20 states. Almost all of Israel's neighbors are anti-Israeli dictatorships, monarchies or theocracies-- a number of them reduced to a state of terrorist chaos.

Derek Hunter Derek Hunter: Shoveling Science

Debra J. Saunders Debra J. Saunders: When in Riyadh, Don't Do as Royals Do

First lady Michelle Obama made an important statement when she showed up in Saudi Arabia with her husband Tuesday to mourn the death of King Abdullah and meet successor King Salman. Though the first lady dressed in a fashion respectful of Saudi custom -- in black pants and a long, loose jacket that fully covered her arms and legs -- she did not don a headscarf. Saudi women do not have that choice. Thus, the first lady made a fashion statement that sent a politely assertive message to the all-male Saudi delegation.

Rich Galen Rich Galen: The War Against Radical Islam

But, for all the words that will come out of Washington, we must not ignore the drumbeat of violence that is growing in volume day after day from radical Islamists around the world.

Emmett Tyrrell Emmett Tyrrell: Conservatism Is Now Everywhere

Arthur  Schaper Arthur Schaper : The Race for California's U.S. Senate Seat

The rumblings about the race for California's US Senate seat are heating up. 2010 was a welcome attempt for Republicans to unseat incumbent Barbara Boxer, who has enjoyed relatively low approval ratings throughout her tenure. In the two prior contests, Republicans promoted a weak candidate, Matt Fong, in 1998, then a non-starter in 2004, the former Secretary of State Bill Jones, who did not have the money to finance a statewide media campaign.

Matthew Bowman Matthew Bowman: How The Contraception Mandate May Spread Measles: Politicizing Preventive Care Increases Public Distrust

There is so much noise on the topic of investing it is hard to tune in to anything. Everyone wants your attention and your money. Sorting it all out is a daunting task. How do you figure out what is right for you?

Mike Shedlock Mike Shedlock: MarketWatch Infomercial: Can Millennials Finally Afford a Home?

I propose that after this relentless rally in home prices, the "new rules" are too risky. Low down payments would have made more sense actually at the bottom of the market, when standards tightened.

Daniel J. Mitchell Daniel J. Mitchell: Prediction: Gridlock for the Next Two Years, but that’s Better than the Alternative

Theres a lot of navel-gazing analysis in Washington about whether to expect some sort of bipartisanship over the next two years. I find such discussions very irritating because they assume that you automatically get good results when Republicans and Democrats both agree on a policy.

According to Chopra, routine tasks are "tedious and dull at best. At worst, they sap your attention and energy.

Ann Coulter Ann Coulter: How Much Is That Psychology Degree Worth?

Republicans need to force colleges to issue reports, just like drug companies, attesting to the average cost, and the average salary, for every degree. It will cost you $160,000 to receive a degree in Spanish literature and will take you 88 years to pay that back.

When the average price of regular gas was close to $4 a gallon, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., called for Congress to look into breaking up giant oil companies. The claim was that "Wall Street greed (was) fueling high gas prices."
