New Poll: Is America Experiencing Europe's Growing Anti-Semitism? - by Hudson Institute

Today, Rep. Omar introduced a resolution supporting the BDS movement. But our recent poll 📊 found that a majority of Americans see the BDS movement as anti-Semitic, by a 3-to-1 ratio.

SHARE if you agree that the BDS movement is anti-Semitic!

Opinion | Whom Should the Secure Act Make Securer?

"The Secure Act’s restrictions on inheritance show where this leads: to directing voters’ attentions to their immediate personal needs rather than the needs of posterity, and to further undermining the already-beleaguered American family." Christopher DeMuth in WSJ Opinion:

Retirement accounts were created with preferred tax treatment to provide resources to workers for their own retirement, not for the purpose of funding vacations or general expenses for beneficiaries.

Why China is not celebrating the unexpected Australian election result

“When there are changes of governments in democratic countries which have endured frictions with the Communist Party, Beijing tends to offer "diplomatic resets" in exchange for a softening of policies… With Morrison's victory, that door is closed,” writes John Lee.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his conservative Liberal National coalition party defied more than three years of losing national polls to pull off what he described as a "miracle" during his victory speech over the weekend.

On Iran strategy, Donald Trump replaces Barack Obama’s mirage with containment

“President Barack Obama empowered Iran at the expense of America’s traditional allies and its own vital interests. Trump has implemented instead a policy of containment,” writes Mike Doran.

Containment does not seek war with Iran but will not shrink if provoked. Nor does it seek regime change, writes Michael Doran of the Hudson Institute.

‘America First’ meets ‘Hungary First,’ but White House wary of love fest

Yesterday, Prime Minister Orbán met with President Trump. Hudson President Ken Weinstein says of the meeting, "the real subtext is likely China, on Orbán’s relations with the Chinese and trying to get greater cooperation on this issue."

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, Europe’s fiercest anti-immigration leader, visits the White House on Monday — but it’s unclear how friendly his welcome will be.

French Churches Are Under Attack, But Media and Politicians Appear Apathetic

Nina Shea tells the Washington Free Beacon that assaults on churches "barely receives a glance from the French state, prosecutors, media or public. Rarely are the attackers identified or apprehended."

French churches are increasingly under threat from arson and desecration, but authorities are apathetic to the worsening situation for Christians.

Asia Bibi, Persecuted for Christian Faith in Pakistan, Is Now Free

Even after Asia Bibi’s release, Pakistan remains the world’s most appalling example of Islamist blasphemy laws and their vile usefulness in inciting violence and repressing the innocent, writes Lela Gilbert.

“Asia Bibi – Free!” I read and reread those amazing three words in an email, whispered "Thank God," but was still almost afraid to hope.

North Korea's Weapons Launch: Kim Jong-un is Flailing and That is Good

As we approach the June 12 anniversary of the #TrumpKimSummit—the first-ever meeting between a sitting North Korean and U.S. leader—Kim is floundering, writes Patrick Cronin.

Trump should keep the pressure up until a deal is reached or it becomes clear Pyongyang will not yield.

Opinion | Why Trump Is Raising Tariffs on China

“As trade watchers around the world armchair-quarterback this week’s negotiations, it’s useful to assess the likelihood of success in each key area of the deal to determine whether it has indeed fallen apart,” writes Michael Pillsbury. Read his predictions:

The president’s tough line will reduce friction later by giving Beijing an incentive to comply with a trade deal.

Opinion | Trump’s Blunt Ambassador to Berlin

Will 2019 go down as the year that one of the most successful alliances in world history lost its way? Much depends on how well Richard Grenell can interpret Donald Trump to the Germans, and vice versa. Read Walter Russell Mead’s latest in The Wall Street Journal.

Richard Grenell isn’t apologizing, though he’s ruffled even pro-American feathers.

Kelly Knight Craft should be UN ambassador and in Trump's Cabinet

In case you missed it from Jon Lerner: History suggests that ignoring or neglecting the United Nations does not improve the place. Without a strong traffic cop on the beat, it only gets worse.

United Nations ambassador nominee Kelly Knight Craft is smart, capable, and knowledgeable about the foreign policy challenges facing our country. Her partisan critics are unfairly attacking her lack of a traditional diplomatic background. Such a background is vastly overrated as a qualification for....

Buying Russian armaments could hurt India-US military ties - The Sunday Guardian Live

Americans sympathetic to India’s many security needs know the peace and good order of the Indo-Pacific will be determined not just at sea, but in the Himalayas and along India’s continental borders, writes Eric Brown & Aparna Pande.

Besides harming US-India strategic cooperation, the S-400 is part and parcel of an inferior suite of defence technologies made by a fading Russian power.   India and the United States have come a long way in building a comprehensive partnership with the potential to define the 21st century for the ...

Why doesn't France respond to attacks on 'Saturday and Sunday people'?

New from Lela Gilbert: While attacks on Christians surge, antisemitic activities also continue to erupt across France.

The sight of towering flames devouring Paris’s magnificent cathedral has brought into clear focus countless assaults on French churches and synagogues.
