"I am not ashamed," a young woman says into a camera. "I am not ashamed." The woman is Leyla Josephine of Glasgow, and she is a self-described feminist performance artist.

Robin Williams' suicide this week shook up people across the political spectrum -- and for good reason. When a highly successful, incredibly popular figure from our culture decides to take his own life, it feels as though suicide could happen to anyone.

On Monday, four days after Vladimir Putin's minions in Ukraine shot down a passenger airliner carrying 298 people, including an American citizen, President Barack Obama emerged from the White House to issue a statement.

If there's one place on Earth that should understand the danger of Jew hatred, it is Frankfurt, Germany. Between 1933 and 1945, the Jewish population of the city was decimated, dropping from 30,000 to 602. So Frankfurt seems an odd place for a new blood libel against the Jews.
