ISIS In Texas?
Two gunmen opened fire at an event yesterday hosted by Pamela Geller's American Freedom Defense Initiative. A security guard was shot in the leg. The gunmen were quickly killed by Garland, Texas, police officers.
Islamists who wanted to wage jihad in America and stifle free speech deliberately targeted this event. The Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest also featured an address by Dutch politician Geert Wilders, a leading critic of the Islamization of Europe.
|Moore Nonsense, Don't Know Much, America, Israel & The World||
Left-wing hero Michael Moore offered his thoughts on the state of race relations in America in a series of tweets yesterday. Among his "demands," Moore suggested we should "Disarm the police."
Referring to the condition of black Americans, Moore mockingly tweeted, "Imprison u, shoot u, sever your spine, crush your larynx, send u to war, keep u poor, call u a thug, not let u vote. But u can sing for us."
What on earth is he smoking?

Strengthen The Iran Bill!
The Senate this week is debating the Corker-Cardin bill, which would require congressional review of President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran. My friend Bill Kristol, in his capacity as chairman of the Emergency Committee for Israel, issued a statement on the legislation. As director of Christians United for Israel Action, I agree completely with his analysis and want to share it with you.

Better In Baltimore
Thousands of additional law enforcement officers managed to restore relative calm to the streets of Baltimore last night. While the riots have captured the nation's attention, there is a teachable moment here with many lessons about the left's failed policies.

We reported yesterday that Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said something extraordinarily stupid over the weekend about giving "those who wished to destroy space to do that." Her office is still trying to clarify exactly what she meant.
But as the rioting raged last night, it was increasingly obvious to everyone that her "hands off" policy was doing just that -- giving thugs the space to destroy.

Anarchy In Baltimore
Freddie Gray's funeral took place today in Baltimore. The 25 year-old black man died on April 19th from injuries sustained while in police custody. Currently there is a state criminal investigation into the officers' conduct and a federal investigation by the Justice Department. But left-wing radicals did not bother to wait for the results of either investigation.

Iran Surrounding Israel
One of the most illogical positions held by President Obama is his insistence on not conditioning the Iranian nuclear negotiations on changes in the regime's behavior. Recognizing Israel's right to exist, for example, ought to be the starting point for any talks with Iran.
Does anyone lose sleep at night over the fact that France and Great Britain have nuclear weapons? Of course not. Those nations are stable, peaceful democracies.
|Kudos To Manhart, Obama Soft On Iran||
Kudos To Michelle Manhart
Many of you probably heard the recent stories about Michelle Manhart. She is an Air Force veteran who attempted to rescue an American flag last week that was being desecrated by radical demonstrators at Valdosta State University in Valdosta, Georgia.
She got into a scuffle with one of the protestors, Eric Sheppard, Jr., and resisted arrest by the campus police. She was briefly detained, banned from campus by the university, but Mr. Sheppard declined to press charges.

Obamacare Of Foreign Policy
According to a Bloomberg report, the Obama Administration "has assessed for several years that Iran has been two to three months away from producing enough fissile material for a nuclear weapon." But it only publicly acknowledged that crucial information a few weeks ago.

Jihadist Targets Churches
Sunday, French authorities captured Sid Ahmed Ghlam, a 24 year-old jihadist from Algeria. He is suspected of killing Aurelie Chatelain, who was shot while sitting in her car Sunday morning. She was reportedly "riddled with bullets." This seemingly random attack isn't the real news.
