In CNN Interview, Obama Commits to Appeasement

On Sunday, President Barack Obama explained his stance on radical Islam to CNN's Fareed Zakaria--and in the process, showed exactly why it is that the U.S. is losing to Al Qaeda, ISIS, and Iran. Obama believes, against all available evidence, that only a small minority of Muslims share the political beliefs of Islamist terror groups. And he is wedded to a particular tactic--the so-called "surgical" strike--that precludes any commitment of troops, giving the enemy wide freedom of action.

New York Times Forced to Correct Netanyahu Speech Timeline

The New York Times has continued its reflexive bias against Israeli Prime Minister with a story Friday alleging, falsely, that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu went behind President Barack Obama's back in arranging a speech to Congress in March. In fact, Netanyahu only accepted Speaker of the House John Boehner's invitation once the White House knew of the invitation. The story has since been corrected online, but the incorrect version will misinform print readers today.

Blue State Blues: Why the Left Hates Bibi, the Modern Man

The left hates Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Some hate him as they would hate any Israeli leader; they just hate Israel (and they may hate Jews, too). Some hate him because they love Obama, and Netanyahu stands up to Obama--which is why many Democrats who would otherwise love Bibi have chosen to hate him. But at the core, the left hates Netanyahu because just as Israel is a nation-state in a post-national world, Bibi is a modern man in a post-modern era.
