That’s the way I felt when I read that Rick Santorum said it sickened him to read John F. Kennedy’s speech on separation of church and state. Interestingly he was silent about a similar speech by Ronald Reagan.

With three of the four leading Republican presidential contenders – Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich – running as strong supporters of Israel, it comes as no surprise that the Arab American News has endorsed Ron Paul in Tuesday’s Michigan primary.

When Joseph P. Kennedy III announced his candidacy for Congress, an ultra-Orthodox Web commentator decided to portray him not as the grandson of Bobby Kennedy, who was assassinated by a Palestinian Arab for being too pro-Israel, but as the “Great grandson of Jew-hating Hitler admirer.”
That has to be the most outrageous example of hate speech I’ve seen in a long time.

Allen West was on his best behavior – for Allen West – at last week's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) meeting in Washington. He gave "an unusually tame speech" for a man "known for flinging red meat by the bucket," said the Washington Post. His biggest applause line came from a member of the CPAC audience who shouted, "Allen West for President."

Appearances in opposing capitals by leading Israeli and Palestinian figures provided more evidence why peace between the two neighbors remains so elusive.
Ismail Haniyeh, the head of Hamas, held hands aloft with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a massive Tehran gathering and declared, "We will never recognize the Zionist regime."
And Avigdor Lieberman, Israel's foreign minister, was in Washington repeating Israeli policy against negotiating peace with a Palestinian government that includes Hamas, which is on the State Department terrorist list.

What do Obama's policy on Israeli settlements and contraception coverage have in common? They show that over a span of three years the administration still hasn't learned one fundamental lesson: look before you leap.
