Profile or Die (Guest Voice)

Profile, or Die by Michael Reagan We all know what an act of Islamic terrorism is — except for our lame duck-in-chief, that is. Now the Canadians know it, too. On Wednesday one of their fellow citizens who had just converted to Islam and wanted to go overseas and join ISIS donned a dark jacket and an “Arabic scarf” and attacked their Parliament. He — the suicidal terrorist — shot one unarmed ceremonial guard to...

Into the morass?

Into the morass? By EUGENE ROBINSON WASHINGTON — “I don’t oppose all wars,” said Barack Obama, then an Illinois state senator, in 2002. “What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war.” Few would describe Obama’s use of military force against the Islamic State as rash, given the time he took in deciding to act. But the more we learn about this intervention, the more it...

Update: The Pentagon confirmed today that one of the 28 bundles of weapons and medical supplies airdropped by U.S. forces to Kurdish fighters in Syria “most likely” fell into enemy hands, but that a majority “reached their intended recipients. “One bundle worth of equipment is not enough equipment to give the enemy any type of advantage at all,” Pentagon spokesman Army Lt. Col. Steve Warren told reporters. “It’s a...

Of Oil and Ethnic Cleansing: Allow Me to Explain the Turks (La Stampa, Italy)

Despite Turkey’s attempts to explain why it’s 400,000 man NATO military stands by passively as the Islamic State commits murder and mayhem a stone’s throw away – the world remains baffled. Is Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan insane? Is he in cahoots with the terrorists? And why such an obsession about opposing the long-suffering, nation-deprived Kurds? Answering these questions in an amazing walk through...

Will Palestinians join ISIS caliphate?

Will Palestinians join ISIS caliphate? By Lloyd Levy EILAT, Israel –While soaking up the sun in Eilat ( 100F. this week), my body was idle but my mind was still ticking over. I had a Damascene revelation, on this ancient road from Cairo to Damascus. The symbolism of Eilat’s location occurred to me. It is at the head of a small bay, with four countries bordering each other along a stretch of coast probably no more than ten miles long....

Sunnis Won’t Oppose ISIS

Peter Van Buren explains the hole in Obama’s ISIS strategy in The American Conservative. There is no path by which America can succeed in its goals in Iraq—repel ISIS and keep the country together—without the active participation of the Sunnis. It is very unlikely that will happen.   Obama’s strategy rests on the assumption that the Sunnis can be bribed and coerced into breaking with ISIS, no matter the state of things in...

UN Human Rights agency in crisis

Human rights violations are increasing around the world but the United Nations agency responsible for protecting helpless people is in crisis. “By comparison with the needs, our capacity to deliver is paper thin,” its chief Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein lamented today. His agency is “being asked to use a boat and a bucket to cope with a flood,” he said. Global unease about proliferating human rights crises is palpable and the agency is...

Misnomer ‘Islamic State’ Highlights Dangerous Societal Deceit (Publico, Portugal)

What’s wrong with calling the newest terrorist scourge ‘the Islamic State’? Beyond handing the group an easy propaganda victory by conferring upon it attributes it lacks and doesn’t deserve, it contributes to the destruction of language and discourse by assigning false names and descriptions to all kinds of things, concepts and people. Columnist Jose Vitor Malheiros of Portugal’s Publico describes the...
