Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer Explains Why “Militant” Islam Is Different

We understand Ambassador Dermer’s wish for a future for Muslims that is tolerant and peaceful – it is a view we once shared after traveling extensively in the Islamic world and living among secular Muslims. However, it is a dream that is fast disappearing because the forces of “militant Islam” are not perverting Islam as some have suggested, rather they are following its tenets to the letter.

Donald Trump has Upset America’s Allies: They Should be Disturbed

The U.S. is expected to protect virtually every prosperous, populous, industrialized nation. But that’s just a start. Washington also must coddle, pamper, praise, uplift, pacify, encourage, and otherwise placate the same countries because they now believe it to be America’s duty to handle their defense. Alas, U.S. leaders have been only too willing to enable this counterproductive behavior. Except for Donald Trump.

Thank You, Donald Trump For Standing With Israel Today

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

Donald Trump is having a good day, which is a rare thing lately. He deserves praise for standing with Israel in the wake of the horrific and deplorable attacks in Tel Aviv. Trump posted a statement on his Facebook page. By contrast, Hillary Clinton had no such statement (or any statement) on her social media feeds.

Two New Palestinian Terrorists in Tel Aviv. Two New Street Names in Ramallah.

Josh Hammer, The Resurgent

The conflict really isn’t as complicated as people make it out to be, as Dennis Prager once demonstrated.  One side wants peace; the other does not.

One Sure Thing at the Democrat Convention and it’s not Hillary

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

Last go-around in Charlotte, we saw the Democrats boo God and resort to parliamentary chicanery to get anything pro-Israel back into their platform. This year in Philadelphia, we may not see Hillary emerge victorious–there’s a small chance. But there’s absolutely no chance Israel will be given a fair hearing in the city of brotherly love.

Remember Our Blessings - Reclaim Our Founders’ Revolutionary Legacy

There is much in America about which to be concerned, even anguished. Yet traveling the world reminds one just how special America remains.

Does The U.S. Really Need an Ally Like Saudi Arabia?

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia does not share values with America, democratic or other. Saudi Arabia is at best a slightly more civilized variant of the Islamic State.

Islamophobia: McCarthy’s Kansas Case Study Shows It’s Not The Real Problem

Our friend Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review columnist and prosecutor in the first Islamist attack on New York’s World Trade Center posted an interesting and revealing column about how the establishment media continually gets its coverage of Islam and Islamism wrong, even to the point of defending those who call for the violent overthrow of the United States government and the destruction of Israel and the Jewish people.

Syrian Opportunity to Help Those Suffering Abroad

Needy people can be helped overseas as well as at home. Last year I visited Zaartari Refugee Camp, located just a few miles from the Syrian border in Jordan. I was traveling with International Orthodox Christian Charities, which carries out an expansive ministry addressing the many needs of Syrians inside and outside of their country.

Stop Reassuring Saudi Arabia, a Worse Threat to the Middle East than Iran

At the Saudis’ behest Washington backs their misbegotten war in Yemen and remains formally committed to the overthrow of Syrian President Bashir al-Assad, the strongest force opposing the far more dangerous Islamic State. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia also underwrites extremist Islamic teaching in madrassas around the world.

Marco Rubio Desperately Plays the Isolationist Card

Trying to defend his record of supporting such disastrous misadventures as Iraq and Libya, Marco Rubio denounced unnamed foes who he claims seek “to derail the postwar consensus about America’s role in the world.” This anonymous “they,” he added, “will never call themselves isolationists, but that is exactly what they are.” Against Ted Cruz, the likely intended target, Rubio's claim obviously is nonsense.

Bandow: No One in Current GOP Field Wears the Reagan Foreign Policy Mantle

The Cato Institute's Doug Bandow, a Special Assistant to President Ronald Reagan, says nuance highlighted Reagan’s policies, but with the exception of two candidates, nuance is completely lacking in the current “bomb ‘em, invade ‘em, occupy ‘em” GOP field.

Lebanon Teeters on Sectarian Brink

Americans should be concerned with Lebanon. The country combines a mix of tolerance, economic openness, pluralism, human rights, democracy, cultural freedom, and liberty unusual for the Middle East. All of these are under threat. If they disappear in Lebanon the Arab world will lose its only example of a humane political and social order. However, Washington will not solve Lebanon’s problems.

GOP Sen. Corker’s Treason Gets Worse – Iran’s Nuclear Missile Program

Republican Senator Robert Corker of Tennessee has betrayed American interests and the interests of our allies in the greater Middle East. From Israel, to Saudi Arabia, to India no nation now within the range of Iran’s fast growing missile technology is secure from the threat of a nuclear armed Islamist Iran. And make no mistake – the combination of Iran’s expansionist Islamism and nuclear weapons technology is an existential threat to Western values and civilization.

Iran Nuclear Weapons Deal A “Go” Corker and McConnell Betray America One More Time

Rather than take the path outlined by our friends Andy McCarthy and Ted Cruz to leave the sanctions in place, thanks to yesterday’s vote – forced for no reason by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell – McConnell and Corker have effectively given the Iranian nuclear weapons program the go ahead and hobbled the next (hopefully conservative) President who might have been expected to try to undo the vast damage to our national security Bob Corker, Mitch McConnell and Barack Obama have inflicted.

Is the Obama – Corker Iran Nuclear Weapons Deal Falling Apart?

If Speaker Boehner and the other “leaders” of the House Republican Conference do not support Rep. Peter Roskam’s resolution it will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that they have been in on this scam from the beginning and they never had any intention of actually giving Obama’s nuclear weapons agreement with Iran the kind of careful review it merits.

After Nuclear Weapons Deal Iran Still A Radical Islamic “Republic”

The Obama fantasy that “engagement” and the deal to allow Iran to pursue its nuclear weapons program free of economic sanctions opens the door for the revival of Iran's pro-democracy movement has no basis in reality because the Islamic Republic is not a society where the majority yearns for a future based on Western consumerist values. We must defeat this dangerous deal. If you'd like to see who your Senator supports (Iran or America), you can check on the Secure America Now Iran Deal Scorecard through this link.

Countdown to Armageddon: Less Than 35 Days To Stop Obama's Iran Nuclear Deal

We must put pressure on Congress to reject Obama's nuclear weapons deal with Iran and save our children from inheriting a dangerous nuclear-armed radical Muslim regime.

CHQ Endorsed Rep. Ron DeSantis: Congress Must Reject the Iran Deal

CHQ endorsed Congressman and U.S. Senate candidate Ron DeSantis (R-FL) called for Congress to reject the Iran Deal in an OpEd that appeared in Time Magazine. In the OpEd, DeSantis cited the fact that the Iran Deal would provide Iran with $150 billion in unfrozen assets and Iran’s history as the world’s biggest state sponsor of terrorism as reasons to reject the deal. The OpEd was co-written with Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton, who like Ron DeSantis served in Operation Iraqi Freedom and was also endorsed by CHQ.

Giving Aid And Comfort To The Enemy: The Best Argument Against Obama’s Iran Nuke Deal

The Iranian Islamists have no intention of ending their war with us, and Obama’s plan to pay them to continue it, while giving them the nuclear weapons with which to win it, is giving aid and comfort to the enemy and nothing short of treason.
