Keep Shamima Begum Out Of Britain

British- born Islamic State acolyte Shamima Begum wants to go back home. Now 19, she left Britain in 2015, along with two similarly brainwashed friends, after having watched heroic videos about Islamic State online. Understandably enough, Britain’s Home Secretary Sajid Javid not only rejected her request to return to her home in the London suburb […]

Netanyahu Should Clarify His Position On Israeli Arabs

Does Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speak in two contradictory voices about Israel’s Arab minority? Does he treat Israeli Arabs like a political football? It would appear so, judging by his comments and actions since 2015. On the one hand, Netanyahu has marginalized and demonized Israeli Arabs, who comprise almost a quarter of Israel’s population.

Trump’s Unadulterated Nonsense

Donald Trump habitually spews out clouds of arrant nonsense, thoughtless, ill-informed and cringe-worthy comments that render him unsuitable to be president of a great republic. One often wishes he had never entered national politics and continued to wheel-and-deal in real estate and perform on reality TV, where his talents were far better deployed. In the latest […]

Ilhan Omar: A Disruptive Force In U.S. Politics

Ilhan Omar, the outspoken Muslim politician from the state of Minnesota, has been an unusually disruptive force in American politics, both in the Democratic Party and on Capitol Hill.

Colmar — the Venice Of France

Laced with a maze of canals, the French city of Colmar might be mistaken for Venice. Yet Colmar is unmistakably Gallic, although many of its historic buildings are inspired by Germanic architecture. Esthetically impressive, old Colmar is a living museum of exquisite half-timbered medieval and early Renaissance houses hugging narrow cobblestone byways. The third largest […]

Bombing In Argentina Still Shrouded In Mystery

The worst antisemitic terrorist incident in decades remains mired in a web of deceit and coverups. The bombing that killed 85 people and injured more than 300 in Buenos Aires’ Jewish community center on July 18, 1994 is still shrouded in mystery. Last week, a court in Buenos Aires — the capital of Argentina — sentenced […]
