In the Middle East it is said there are three kinds of dead: dead, dead and buried, dead and buried and not coming back. The peace process is at stage one and no one seems to care much about reviving it.
The topic will get little more than passing attention at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy conference that begins this weekend.

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.

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.

His biggest applause line came from a member of the CPAC audience who shouted, "Allen West for President."
