Israel: Decades-old conflict not about to cease

Since 9/11, western powers have behaved more or less like Prince Hamlet, conflicted by doubts and stalemated by niceties that barely register with those who have mounted their version of “slings and arrows” against the West and its allies. A dozen years following 9/11 should have erased any remaining doubt that Osama bin Laden spoke […]

An empty shell for Barack Obama’s foreign policy

Following the murder of the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, in Benghazi by Islamist terrorists connected to al-Qaida on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, the European press pronounced upon President Obama’s foreign policy in the Arab-Muslim world. From Berlin, the German magazine Der Spiegel in its online English version ran the headline “Obama’s Middle […]

The play’s the thing: Mark Steyn on the Obama admin’s utter failures

As if I had to tell you, columnist Mark Steyn wrote the best piece regarding the latest example of total, epic failure on the part of the Obama administration: the global Islamist chaos. Disgrace in Benghazi

Middle East Mayhem: Congrats Obama,You Built That

Remember back in the beginning of 2011 when Obama told us about the freedom lovers in Egypt and Libya living under the oppression of dictators and needing our immediate help to establish democracy in their fair lands? You do? So do I. How weird. We should become best friends. Facebook me. Anyway … it turns […]

A night with the fanatics

On Tuesday evening, I covered a 9/11 vigil in Toronto, and a counter-protest across the street organized by Islamic and leftist groups calling for the return of Omar Khadr. We didn’t know that as this was taking place, Muslim fascists in Libya and Egypt were murdering people who had in some way offended them. One […]

The untold story

So the circle completes. Back in 1982, Channel 4 launched in Britain. It was, believe it or not, the country’s first new television network in a generation. I was fortunate enough to write a major series that aired the first year of Channel 4, entitled The Outsiders. We featured all sorts of famous and controversial […]

Hillary’s message likely will be unheeded

The news from Egypt that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, on visiting Alexandria recently, was greeted by a crowd chanting “Monica” while throwing tomatoes and shoes at her motorcade did not come as a surprise. There is nothing outrageous, atrocious, vulgar and violent done on a regular basis in the name of Islam across the […]

The military’s shrewd gambit in Egypt

JIZEL, Algeria — The landscape around Jizel, east of Algeria’s capital Algiers on the Barbary Coast, appears like an artist’s hidden paradise in some remote corner of the world. The view of the Mediterranean framed by the mountains is spectacular, and it tells me why the French fought so long and hard to remain here. […]

View from Algeria of North Africa tumult

ORAN, ALGERIA – A cool evening breeze brings relief over the faded glory of the city I am visiting. This was once the prized French metropolitan on the Mediterranean that Albert Camus made the setting of his novel, The Plague. The crowd is gone and the street is about empty. But inside the cafe where […]

Video lifts veil on Arab-Muslim societies

A young man is pinned to the ground, his head is twisted and a knife held against his throat. In a few minutes the head is severed and held up for display to the public chanting loudly, “Allahu Akbar” (God is great). The video of this gruesome public execution of an apostate — the victim […]

West must resist urge to act in Syria

Syria is caught once again in the long history of sectarian conflicts in the region and, as the killings escalate, the West recoils in horror. The urge to do something, anything, that might end this insanity is natural. And so France’s new president, Francois Hollande, ventures forth declaring, “It is not possible to allow Bashar […]

Absurd whitewashing: U.S. Army overlooks ‘know your enemy’ rule

Welcome to our brave new world of truth, honesty and courage. The U.S. Army has a Special Operations Training Course, where its commandos, Green Berets, secret military operatives and so on are taught about the enemy, and the context of whom they’re fighting. Today, it’s not the communists or fascists who the Americans and the […]

Muslims Miffed That Catholic University Has Catholic Imagery

Last week I was asked to lend my aging mug and highly attuned smart mouth for a documentary film regarding how the “religion of peace”—via political correctness in the public school system—is anesthetizing our kids to Islam’s malevolence toward all things American. Like a good trooper I acquiesced (to the producer’s delight) and gave my […]
