US Secretary of State Kerry demands that Israel curb her settlement enterprise in the interests of peace. Unfortunately, Israel's "partner for peace" the Palestinian Authority consider any Jew on the land in the Jewish State is a settler and that includes Tel Aviv. No amount of territorial compromise by the Jews will tamp down the desire of Islamists to push the Israel's Jewish populace into the sea.

I wish I could say the barbarism that visited London was an anomaly as a pair of Islamists butchered an unarmed British serviceman they ambushed on the street, but this is not uncommon behavior for the most fervent true believers in Sharia. In France, three Jewish children, three French soldiers, and a rabbi were murdered just last year. Remember the Boston Marathon bombing just weeks back? These crimes were not perpetrated by raging Buddhists or Episcopalians but by Muslims in the name of their faith.

After the Oklahoma tornado with so much destruction, at least there seems to be a political consensus emerging to do what is necessary to help the stricken communities heal. There have been partisan remarks about the storms being caused by "global warming", but virtually all political figures are in agreement about disaster aid being made available to promote rebuilding.

I am in Charleston, South Carolina and this beautiful and historic city just experienced its worst one day rain total ever. I was in my hometown of Nashville during our millennial flood of May 2010, and in Orlando during the record rains of October 2011, and now it seems I am drowning Charleston. If I visit your locale, start building an ark.
A tornado wrought unbelievable devastation to a community still recovering from a 1999 super storm. Moore, Oklahoma essentially ceased to be when two hundred mile per hour winds obliterated every building in their path including the elementary school. Aid and prayer are needed now more than ever.

Iran continues to export terror and build a nuclear weapons capability because of a lack of will on the part of the nations that oppose Tehran's aggressor agenda. The "mad mullahs" see no consequence imposed on North Korea for belligerence and intransigence and so figure that Iran too is immune from serious repercussions no matter how much carnage Iranians inflict taking up the side of Assad in Syria, how much they aid Hezbollah to dominate Lebanon or export terror attacks aimed at Israeli or Jews the world over, or even as it becomes undeniable that the aim of Tehran's nuclear project is to create an atomic attack capability. Appeasement does not prevent war but causes worse conflagration than early decisive action.

Just when you think simmering tension between the sane world and Pyongyang has abated, North Korea test fires three short range missiles to prove they are still relevant enough to menace. Maybe the little leader wants another Dennis Rodman visit or to extract additional concessions from the weak-kneed West. Like a spoiled child throwing a tantrum to garner attention, generally unreliable North Korea can be counted on to upset the apple cart the moment that simmering hostility actually seems to be cooling down.
