Pamela Geller -- the woman whose group, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, organized the Muhammad cartoon drawing contest in Garland, Texas -- may be the most hated person in America right now. She is certainly the left's chief villain. And, sad to say, though few conservatives hate her, more than a few have condemned her.

Two months ago, The New York Times published an op-ed piece by a professor of philosophy titled, "Why Our Children Don't Think There Are Moral Facts."

Whenever I have received a call from a listener to my radio show challenging Israel's legitimacy, I have asked these people if they ever called a radio show to challenge any other country's legitimacy.

The "Black Lives Matter" campaign is based on as big a lie as the "campus rape culture" lie; the Rolling Stone magazine gang rape at the University of Virginia fraternity lie; the gang rape by the Duke University lacrosse team lie; the "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" Ferguson lie; and all the other lies that animate leftist hysterias.

Hillary Clinton has announced that she is running for president of the United States. What her likely nomination says about the Democratic Party and tens of millions of Americans is depressing.

As one who loves America -- not only because I am American, but even more so because I know (not believe, know) that the American experiment in forming a decent society has been the most successful in history -- I write the following words in sadness: With few exceptions, every aspect of American life is in decline.

American Jews on the left were beside themselves last week. Israel's Jews did something that utterly infuriated these American Jews: Israel's Jews overwhelmingly voted for a man of the right (or for other right-of-center parties). And not just any right-winger, but the only leader in the Western world to publicly differ from their hero, President Barack Obama.

There is no question about whether President Obama -- along with Secretary of State John Kerry and the editorial pages of many newspapers -- has a particular dislike of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Regarding Islamic violence -- the greatest world evil since Nazism and Communism -- the president of the United States, his administration, and the left generally live in a make-believe world, a world of denial.

On the happily few occasions when callers to my radio show make a particularly foolish comment, I ask them what graduate school they attended.

In the famous 1997 movie comedy "Liar Liar," actor Jim Carrey plays a lawyer who, as a result of his young son's birthday wish being magically fulfilled, cannot tell a lie -- he can only tell the truth -- for 24 hours. Let's imagine that such a wish forced President Obama to do the same, not for 24 hours, but only during his State of the Union address.

I spent Thanksgiving debating at the Oxford Union.

Since 9/11, the Western world's academic, media, political elites have done their best to portray Islam in a favorable light, treating it very differently from all other religions.
