If it were a dreary rainy day today, and I hadn’t just gotten in from church, I would be an awfully depressed man. It really is one thing to know that a dedicated horde of Muslims is working every day to kill as many of my friends and family as they possibly can. It’s quite […]

Buried slightly in this article about how evangelical Christian groups, usually vocal and ready supporters of Israel, have been quiet about Israel’s attacks on Hezbollah, is something I believe is a more compelling story. The Rev. Ted Haggard, president of the evangelical association, insists the inaction is not a criticism of Israel, but reflects a […]

So, the UN Security Council has finally hammered out a cease-fire agreement among Israel, Hezbollah, and Lebanon. That’s more than likely a good thing and, though I have serious misgivings about the wisdom of treating Hezbollah as if it were a sovereign nation instead of the mercenary band of Islamist killers it really is and […]

Leading lefty blogger John Aravosis, eagerly welcomed by “mainstream” Demcoratic politicians, has decided that today’s announcement of a plot to murder a few planeloads full of people is just political propaganda. Lest we forget, Aravosis launched his blog to Democratic fame by accusing several White House staffers of bringing in gay escorts. Am I exaggerating […]

Former Ambassador to the UN Richard Holbrook has an op-ed in today’s Washington Post warning of world war if we don’t engage in his sort of diplomacy in the Middle East. My first question for Holbrook would be, what does he think we’re fighting right now? Whether he realizes it or not, we’ve been engaged […]

British police have arrested 21 Israelis who planned to blow up as many as ten flights from the UK to the US in response to the ongoing indiscriminate killing of Israeli citizens by Hezbollah rockets and the international community’s lack of action to disarm Hezbollah as demanded by the UN Security Council… No. Wait. That’s […]

Remember those eleven missing Egyptian students? Well, today, the FBI has three of them in custody. Eight are still unaccounted for. The first was found in Mineapolis, MN. There’s no indication in the article about how he got there nor what he was doing there. Authorities are quick to note that he “posed no terrorism […]

Today I ran across another difference between Israel and Hezbollah that I think goes to the heart of this current conflict. Using a few internet searches, I found a couple examples where Israel blanketed an area in Lebanon with leaflets warning the civilians there of a coming attack days before the attack actually arrived. Thre’s […]

The NFL has chosen a successor to the returing Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, and it looks like “stay the course” is the league’s watchword. About all you really need to know is that the man the owners chose started with the league as an intern, has worked for the league for 24 years, has enjoyed a […]

Pity the poor Muslims in America. So horrible is the climate of fear that Muslim charities can hardly get cash donations anymore. No, I’m serious. That’s the point of this piece – that Muslims around the world are suffering because Muslims in America are afraid of getting a visit from the Men in Black for […]
