The president’s State of the Union message last Tuesday was in many respects, and as has been much remarked upon, an appalling document. It was verbose, stylistically grating, and largely fraudulent, as it took credit for benign developments that have not occurred and unctuously denounced political ...Read More...

Here. There is no Battle of the Trench for Fatah, when it comes to Hamas, save for a little quarrel over who gets to keep and divert aid money from the Infidels and provide jobs for the boys. No:  "we're in the same trench" waging the same Jihad against the same Infidel nation-state, the one run ...Read More...

It isn't often you see a ...Read More...
