Sharia is the Antithesis of Our Constitution\\\\\\\\\\ Laura: Sharia goes against everything we in this country hold dear. We have to fight its implementation tooth and nail. Anyone who says that sharia is compatible with the U.S. constitution is lying, practicing taqiya, since sharia undermines our constitutional guarantees. Sharia Law or Constitution? America Must Choose\\\\\\\\\\\\ By William G. Boykin, Texas Insider\\\\\\\\\\ We tend to assume Islam deserves unquestioned First Amendment protection. But it is a totalitarian way of life with aggressive political goals, not just a religion. What is to be done? The Founders who wrote the U.S. Constitution were very aware that the citizens of this nascent nation wanted the freedom to choose their own manner of worship. They made history by forbidding religious tests for public office in Article VI. They added the First Amendment to ensure that Americans would be protected from government interference in their spiritual affairs. But a dilemma exists in our nation today concerning whether or how the First...

Attendees were invited to sign a petition that for every 25 signatures, Cotler would be able to table and speak to another Iranian issue on the floor of the House of Commons. “The petition is part of a 10-point program that...

The Middle East is in the midst of an historic upheaval. But despite the Arab street’s clear demands for regime change, there are still those who insist that a withdrawal from the West Bank is the recipe for regional stability. They could not be further from the truth. In reality, moves to delegitimize our presence in Judea and Samaria, and ultimately to hasten our withdrawal to the 1967 armistice lines, would prove catastrophe for democratic hopes in the region. If there is to be any progress, it must be grounded in the concept of defensible borders. As the world waits for Libya to become the latest tyranny to tumble, it is far from certain that democracy will follow Muammar Gaddafi’s exit. Similarly, the path to freedom and truly representative government in Egypt...

Israel shouldn’t be singled out and 2) criticism of Islam shouldn’t be criminalized. About time. On the other hand, Clinton: Keep up aid to Lebanon Leo Rennert, AMERICAN THINKER Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in Geneva on Feb. 28 for a major U.S. policy address to the UN Human Rights Council.\\\\\\\\\\\\ While Clinton welcomed the ouster of Libya from the Council — on orders of the UN General Assembly — her speech was more newsworthy on two other counts. First, she called for creation by the Council of a special rapporteur to document human-rights abuses in Iran — “Why do people have the right to live free from fear in Tripoli but not in Tehran?” she asked — and second, she slammed the Council for its “structural bias against Israel.” This was a dramatic, public spanking of a Human Rights Council that has disgraced itself by its singular determination to demonize Israel,...

Many leaders wanted a positive message to come out of it. One thing was clear and that is that Obama supported the division of Jerusalem and wanted Israel to be more forthcoming in its concessions to reach peace. Obama also talked about how sinscere Abbas is.. I bet ZOA wasn’t invited. Remember these Jewish leaders are almost all Democrats. Ed Lasky at American Thinker says Our patronizing President lectures the Jews Obama wants Israel to create context for peace HAARETZ\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ But some of the delegates, who asked not to be named, also said that the president hinted that Israel must do some soul-searching regarding its commitment to peace. Obama relayed that the Palestinians “don’t feel confident that the Netanyahu government is serious about territorial concessions,” said participants. Obama also indicated that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas was set on establishing a state during...

In “Jesus of Nazareth-Part II” excerpts released Wednesday, Benedict explains biblically and theologically why there is no basis in Scripture for the argument that the Jewish people as a whole were responsible for Jesus’ death. Interpretations to the contrary have been used for centuries to justify the persecution of Jews. While the Catholic Church has for five decades taught that Jews weren’t collectively responsible, Jewish scholars said Wednesday the argument laid out by the German-born pontiff, who has had his share of mishaps with Jews, was a landmark statement from a pope that would help fight anti-Semitism today.
