Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas quickly rejected Benjamin Netanyahu's invitation to address Knesset to share his vision of peace with the Israeli people.

His spokesman said it was just another "gimmick" and a bluff.

If Abbas really feels the Israeli prime minister is bluffing, he should call him on it. As one American politician likes to say, what have you got to lose?

In Benjamin Netanyahu's defense, maybe he just can't help himself. Meddling in American politics is just too tempting for him to resist.  And he's so good at it, just look at how he helped elect President Romney and his success in leading the Republican opposition to the Iran nuclear agreement. 

It didn't take long for Bibi to violate his pledge of neutrality in this year's presidential election.

The only thing nearly as outrageous as Donald Trump's thinly veiled calls for the assassination of Hillary Clinton is the deafening silence of Republican leaders.

Donald Trump says he has a plan to defeat ISIS, but he is keeping it secret to be unpredictable and avoid tipping off the enemy.

If that sounds familiar, it may be because it sounds a lot like Richard Nixon's secret plan to end the war in Vietnam.

Trump repeated it again following this weekend's terrorist incidents in New York and New Jersey.  When asked by a sycophantic Fox News interviewer what he would do, he said, "We're going to have to do something extremely tough over there."

Like what? Steve Doocy asked.

Remember when CNN used to be a real news channel?  No more.  Not since it hired Corey Lewandowski and other campaign flacks to be paid "analysts." 

Donald Trump reportedly told his campaign manager "You're  fired" and made him an offer he couldn't refuse.  Just sign a nondisclosure agreement, don't discuss anything about the campaign or the candidate and in return you'll get a generous but unspecified severance. And, it turned out, more.

Donald Trump is going to make America Christian and to do that he wants to tear down one of this pillars that has made this nation the Golden Medina for Jews from all over the world.

"The Christians are being treated horribly because we have nobody to represent the Christians," he told an evangelical gathering last week in Washington.  "I will be the greatest representative of the Christians."
