When listing the world’s most notorious terrorist organizations, why is it that Al-Qaeda, ISIS and Boko Haram so quickly spring to mind, while Hezbollah is frequently forgotten? In this video, Tony Badran, Research Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, explains how the backing of Iran has served to legitimize Hezbollah on the world stage, while simultaneously making the group all the more dangerous.
With great common sense, President Trump has temporarily halted immigration from failed terrorist states until proper vetting can take place in order to protect the citizens of the Unites States.
Predictably, the left and the leftist media are in a collective meltdown.

Appeasement, like all policies conceived in the spirit of utopia, does not bring forth security, nor does it bring peace. On the contrary, appeasement insures eventual conflagration.
By acknowledging the hegemonic designs of the Islamic state of Iran, this administration is enabling tyranny and mass murder.
Benjamin Netanyahu spoke this morning at AIPAC. In this speech, he paid lip service to his respect for President Obama. He also said that Israel has always been and must remain a bipartisan issue.
But Israel is no longer a bipartisan issue.
Obama and the postmodern Democrats are sculpting American-Israel relations according to a hard left reading of history in which Israel is viewed as a colonial force occupying native lands belonging to indigenous people.
Of course, the historical fact is that the Jewish people are the indigenous people. The Arab Muslims are late interlopers, products of a cruel colonial Islamic empire whose roots and justifications are found in the Koran.
And of course, it is Democrats who are boycotting Bibi’s speech, not Republicans. Thus, Obama has cynically chosen to make Israel a partisan issue using the tried and true tactics of his political guru, the Communist agitator Saul Alinsky.
