Hillary’s Passover Editorial

In the Quran, Passover is one of the most recounted stories.  It is the story of the bondage of the Children of Israel and their deliverance from Egypt’s Pharaoh. In the New Testament, the “last supper” is Jesus’ celebrating Passover.  There seems to be only one problem.  The archeologists and historians of today cannot find […]

Syrian Immigration

It is a disgrace to the world to see the Syrian refugees wandering around with no clear path to ultimate safety.  They need to be helped and we have a moral requirement to help them!  We do this because we are fellow human beings and we hope that, should the roles ever be reversed, others would do […]

Throw Israel Under the Bus – Not Likely

I have never met an American who wasn’t proud of his/her ancestry.  Go back a generation or two and we find we are from Western Europe, Russia, Ireland, The Middle East, Africa, Japan, China, Korea, and the list goes on.  If we are not exactly a melting pot, we, at least, are a good tossed […]
