Palestine and The Nature of Things-George Mcclellan 

Palestinians, I was told, offer nothing to Jordanian society except hostility, conflict, and woe. Egypt, where I have twice been, has nothing but sneering contempt for the Palestinians and wants nothing to do with them.

Peaceably Exercising Their First Amendment Rights

The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States guarantees to all of us both the freedom of speech and the right of peaceable assembly. With the truly idiotic pro-Palestinian, pro-Hamas demonstrations which have broken out on college campuses, primarily in the more liberal areas, and the forcible resistance to them by college administrators, …

My older daughter, an Army Reservist currently deployed to the Middle East, has a four-day out-of-country pass, and I’m meeting her in Jerusalem. I told a couple of my fellow parishioners that I’d miss Mass next Sunday, but that actually means I’ll miss …
