Anti-Semitism On The Rise
The ancient evil of anti-Semitism is on the rise. And for all the talk of tolerance and diversity, one of the most dangerous places for a Jew today is on an American university campus.
A new study that monitored activity at more than 100 American colleges and universities since 2015, found a dramatic increase in anti-Semitic events in the first half of this year. Here are some key findings of the study, which catalogued nearly 300 anti-Semitic incidents in the past six months:

ISIS Threatens The West
From the attack in Nice to the beheading of a priest in Normandy, ISIS is on the march. Democrats may not want to talk about it, but I will. This is a conversation we MUST have.
Before we move on and forget what happened to Father Jacques Hamel, here are some of the latest details. There is a mosque just a block away from the church were Father Hamel was murdered. Ironically, the mosque sits on land that was donated by the Catholic Church.

A True Martyr
Not far from the Normandy beaches where Allied forced began the liberation of Nazi-occupied Europe, Islamofascists loyal to ISIS stormed a church this morning. They forced Father Jacques Hamel, an 86 year-old priest, to his knees, beheaded him and filmed the attack.
A nun also suffered life-threatening wounds before French police shot and killed the jihadists. One of the attackers had been previously convicted of terrorism charges and was supposed to be under electronic surveillance.

Perception vs. Reality
A big debate erupted in the media over the weekend. Many talking heads feel our political discourse is "too dark." They say the rhetoric is exaggerating America's problems. My initial reaction is that many of the talking heads who live and work in the cloistered environments of Manhattan and Washington, D.C., aren't actually experiencing the problems average Americans are confronting.

BLM Targets. . . Israel?
For months, I have been warning that the left in America is increasingly defined by its hostility toward Israel and anti-Semitism. Here's the latest example.
The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement recently presented the mayor of Atlanta, Kasim Reed, with a list of demands.

Freddie Gray Revisited
Earlier this week, Lt. Brian Rice, the highest ranking officer charged in the death of Freddie Gray, was acquitted of all charges. You may recall that Gray's death triggered days of rioting in Baltimore last year. Lt. Rice is the third officer to be vindicated, while a fourth case resulted in a hung jury.

Jihad On A Train
Europe has suffered another jihadist attack. Yesterday, Muhammad Riyad, a 17 year-old refugee from Afghanistan, attacked 18 people with a knife and an ax. Fortunately, no one on the train was killed. But five people were critically injured and two are reportedly "clinging to life." German police shot and killed Riyad.
An ISIS flag was found at his home, and the Islamic supremacist group has released a suicide video of Riyad vowing to "slaughter infidels." Nevertheless, a spokesman for German authorities said, "We are searching for a motive."

War On Cops
The war against police in America continues. Yesterday morning, three Baton Rouge officers were gunned down by a former Marine, Gavin Long, who also went by the name "Cosmo Setepenra." Long carried out the assassinations on his 29th birthday. Three other officers were injured in the attack.

Terror In Nice
France has once again been struck by radical Islamic supremacists. A jihadist drove a semi through a crowd in Nice, in southern France, during Bastille Day fireworks celebrations. At least 84 people were killed, including 10 children. More than 50 children were hurt and are being treated in hospitals. Many are in critical condition.

Trump To Pence: You're Hired!
Around lunchtime today, Washington media exploded with unconfirmed reports that Donald Trump had selected Indiana Governor Mike Pence to be his vice presidential running mate. A formal announcement is expected tomorrow.
I have known Mike Pence for many years, even before he entered Congress. He is a solid, pro-family, pro-life conservative, with a Reaganesque demeanor. I believe he will provide balance to the GOP ticket in many ways.
