The 3 Israelis murdered today at Har Hadar by a Palestinian terrorist have not yet been buried and Abbas' is already signing the checks to the terrorist's family: 6,000 shekels paid immediately; 2,600 shekels each month for life

The need to fix immigration has been clear for decades. It seems that Trump is nudging Congressional leaders towards a common-sense deal capable of generating broad bipartisan support: dramatically increased border security coupled with an embrace of those whom we have already vetted carefully.

I attempted to look at the words more metaphorically: Who shall be tormented by the fire of ambition … who shall hunger for companionship … who shall thirst for approval … who shall be strangled by insecurity … who shall be plagued by the pressures of conformity.
