Here’s Secretary of State John Kerry speaking with Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah at his desert encampment Rawdat Khuraim on January 5, 2014.

Look at this haunting image of illegal African immigrants, mostly from Eritrea and the Sudan, protesting outside the Holot detention center, not far from Ktziot, in the Negev, southern Israel.

Four Arab kids were looking at the remains of a burnt motorcycle belonging to Abdullah Harti, 29, a jihadist who was targeted and taken out by an Israeli drone. He is now in critical condition in the hospital. Harti was a bad man, who shot rockets at civilians. But I doubt that this is how […]
