What would have happened if, during the Cold War, Soviet intelligence had been responsible for training Americans charged with countering communist aggression? Surely, we would not have defeated the USSR.
American taxpayers continue to underwrite Egypt ’s military regime. Why? We are constantly told that without them, things would be even worse for the Copts. Yes. They might be, like Egypt ’s Jews, driven out of their homeland.
Iranian pastor may be charged as a traitor
Beyond the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks looms another signal date in the annals of global jihad. That date is Sept. 20, when the Palestinian Authority's Mahmoud Abbas is expected to petition the United Nations for statehood.
President Obama sent bin Laden to sleep with the sturgeons earlier this year in a move widely hailed. No one but the Michael Moores complained that bin Laden hadn’t been given a Miranda warning or carped that our faithful friends, the Pakistanis, hadn’t been tipped off first.
"Muslims living in America face bias, discrimination and persecution. That is the mainstream media’s story and they’re sticking to it – despite the fact that there is no evidence to back it up. You might call it a faith-based narrative."
Is there any subject more controversial than the question of the legitimacy of the modern State of Israel? Is it the eternal home of the Jewish people, promised to them by God Himself? Or is it the illegitimate home of violent Jewish occupiers, an apartheid state guilty of ethnic cleansing?
Osama Bin Laden is dead, but we mustn’t lose sight of our major focus in the Middle East—stopping the advance and attacks from radical Islam and supporting our critical allies. Instability remains.
In the Bush years, poll results that showed the American people losing confidence in their president were featured routinely on the front page of major newspapers like The Washington Post.
"Since American liberals don't have the guts to say it, allow me: The Rev. Terry Jones hasn't done anything wrong. Nothing." So writes my friend and conservative radio host Michael Graham in the Boston Herald. And on this, I think Michael's nuts.
It’s just how Islam rolls when it comes to interfacing with other faiths; they kill them or oppress them.
That preacher in Florida who burned a Koran is a ______ (Fill in the Blank). On that, I think we can all agree.
It was a stunning moment of moral clarity. As the South Vietnamese refugees clambered onto rickety boats in the South China Sea to escape the victorious Communists, the American Left that orchestrated the US defeat through a sustained campaign of propaganda and fake calls for peace stood silent.
Free and democratic societies take chances. They guarantee freedom of speech and of the press, despite the risk that harmful, foolish, or depraved ideas may be promoted.
A few days after this column appears, I will be visiting my 100th country -- Cambodia. I am writing this column aboard a ship on the South China Sea on my way there along with 200 of my radio listeners.
Like ordinary folks, presidents of the United States are known by the company they keep. It is a test of their character. Often it shapes their policies. In the case of Barack Obama, it may blight his legacy and our nation’s security interests.
What’s interesting to me is listening to the Left explain this Muslim mayhem, murder and demolition.
Americans must learn two concepts to better understand the political earthquake the United States is now pushing as President Obama gives his nod to "the Arab street," predominantly organized, it seems, by the Muslim Brotherhood, to force out an ally, Hosni Mubarak.
Last month, Americans celebrated the holidays without a terrorist attack on American soil. That should be a source of relief but not complacency. Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan, Nigeria and the Philippines were not so lucky.
Given the Democrats' track record of investigating Republican administrations, they will lack credibility when they protest Republicans investigating actions by the Obama administration.
Benjamin Brown French strung a banner across the full length of the western portico of the Capitol. The illuminated sign was legible up and down Pennsylvania Avenue. It read: "This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.” French was the capital’s commissioner of public buildings. He was not celebrating the Republicans’ election victories of 2010.
