Stand With Israel
Christians United For Israel kicked off its ninth annual Washington Summit today. As you may know, Christians United For Israel was founded by Pastor John Hagee, and I am honored to serve on CUFI's Executive Board.
The timing of this year's Summit seems prophetic and the mood is heavy. Thousands of pro-Israel Christians have come to our nation's capital to show their support for the Jewish state as it is once again engaged in hostilities against Islamic terrorists who have vowed to destroy it.

"The Bear Is Loose"
We've been hearing that phrase a lot lately. White House staffers refer to Obama as "the Bear" when he is sneaking burgers behind Michelle's back or cutting loose on the campaign trail. Unfortunately, there is a very different bear loose on the international scene -- the Russian bear.
The evidence is overwhelming that Russian forces or highly trained Moscow-aligned separatists in Ukraine shot down Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. They have routinely shot down Ukrainian fighter jets and helicopters.

BREAKING NEWS: World Instability Grows
A Malaysian passenger jet crashed today near the Ukrainian/Russian border. Israel has launched a ground operation into Gaza.
The left is losing the PR war over immigration. Public opinion and the political landscape have shifted tremendously in recent weeks. Gallup reports that "immigration/illegal aliens" now tops the public's list of the most pressing issues confronting the country. Other polls show overwhelming opposition to Obama's immigration policies.

The Backlash Builds

America Rejects Open Borders
A poll released today by ABC News and the Washington Post is getting a lot of publicity. It purports to show that the country supports Barack Obama on the issue of immigration. ABC News ran the story with this headline: "More Than Half Back Immigration Plan," referring to the administration's request for $4 billion in emergency spending.

Holder Uses "The Race Card" AGAIN
When it's in political trouble, the left resorts to stoking racial fires. Over the weekend, Attorney General Eric Holder played the race card yet again during an interview with ABC News. Here's how Holder described opposition to President Obama:
"There's a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that's directed at me, directed at the president. …There's a certain racial component to this for some people. I don't think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there's a racial animus."

Border Blame Game
As the backlash grows to the massive wave of illegal immigration that is taking place along our porous southern border, the Obama Administration and its pro-amnesty allies are desperately trying to pin the blame on someone else.

The Media's Anti-Israel Bias
Today's Washington Post provided more proof that the media deliver the news with an anti-Israel bias. Above the fold, on the front page was this headline: "Israel Hits Gaza Homes," with the subtitle: "Children And Women Killed." The headline contained a second, smaller subtitle: "Netanyahu Blames Tactics Of Hamas."
But the bias is clear: A quick glance of the headlines would lead one to believe that Israel was indiscriminately bombing Palestinian homes, killing women and children.

To Impeach Or Not To Impeach
Sarah Palin declared yesterday that it was time to impeach Barack Obama. The last straw, according to Palin, is the continuing border crisis caused in part by Obama's unwillingness to enforce our immigration laws.

The Next Intifada?
Palestinian terrorists have fired more than 100 rockets into Israel in the past 24 hours. These latest attacks from Hamas, which is now part of the Palestinian government, are reaching further into Israel. Two rockets were intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system over the greater Tel Aviv area. There is renewed talk of another Palestinian uprising or a third intifada.
