May 22, 2020 by

by Douglas Murray, UnHerd: Across Europe, political parties once deemed to be on the far-Right have made huge electoral breakthroughs by moderating their positions and coming in from the cold. They have been able to do this because of the unwillingness of mainstream politicians to address one of the most important issues facing the continent – immigration — coupled with media’s tendency to cast dissenting opinion as extreme.

Denying their parent and embracing their assassin

Feb 16, 2020 by

by Melanie Phillips, Israel Hayom: Israel is the only country in the Middle East where Christians are safe.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin...

Terror in New York: Is anti-Semitism on the rise?

Jan 16, 2020 by

from The Acton Institute: On December 10, 2019, shoppers in a Kosher market in Jersey City, N.J., became the targets of anti-Semitic violence. Two men opened fire in the grocery store, killing four people. Just a few weeks later, a man wielding a machete broke into a rabbi’s home in Monsey, New York, and stabbed five people who were in the midst of celebrating Hanukkah. One victim, 72-year-old Josef Neumann, was the most seriously injured and currently remains in a coma. These two atrocious...
