Trump’s Unpresidential Comments

The influx of about one million Muslims into Germany in the past two years has touched off fears in the Jewish community. This is perfectly understandable.

Neo-Nazi Anglin Is Gaming The System

Neo- Nazi propagandist Andrew Anglin has gone into hiding, but his disappearance is hardly a mystery.

In principle, international sporting competitions should be open to all nations with absolutely no exceptions.

Canadian Muslims And Bill 62

Muslims are the fastest growing religious minority in Canada. The arrival of 40,000 Syrian refugees in the past year certainly accentuated this trend. From 600 Muslims in Canada in 1931 to 579,000 in 2001 and to more than one million in 2011, the size of the Muslim community has grown exponentially. Statistics Canada expects the Muslim […]

A Mixed Message From Poland

Last week, in Warsaw, 60,000 Poles and foreigners participated in an Independence Day march to mark 99 years of Polish nationhood. It should have been an auspicious occasion.
