What's next in Afghanistan?

What's next in Afghanistan?

by John R. Bolton  •  August 15, 2017 at 12:30 pm

As President Trump wrestles with America's role in Afghanistan, he should first decide what our objectives are today compared to what we wanted immediately after Sept. 11, 2001.
Initially, the United States overthrew the Taliban regime but failed to destroy it completely. Regime supporters, allied tribal forces and opportunistic warlords escaped (or returned) to Pakistan's frontier regions to establish sanctuaries.
Similarly, while the Taliban's ouster also forced al-Qaida into exile in Pakistan and elsewhere, al-Qaida nonetheless continued and expanded its terrorist activities. In Iraq and Syria, al-Qaida morphed into the even more virulent ISIS, which is now gaining strength in Afghanistan.

The Anti-Semitic Jewish Media

The Anti-Semitic Jewish Media

by Bruce Bawer  •  August 16, 2017 at 4:00 am
  • Almost everyone in a position to do something is a coward. Politicians continue to recite the mantra that "Muslims are today's Jews," even though in Europe today Muslims are far more often the tormentors than the tormented, and Jews lead the list of victims of public abuse.
  • Needless to say, the immigrants Trump wants to keep out of the U.S. are precisely the type who, in Europe, are currently Jew-bashing people like Stephen Miller -- and Rob Eshman. But Eshman doesn't want to think about this ticklish fact, which challenges his own simplistic, self-righteous pontifications.
  • Linda Sarsour is the very personification of stealth Islamization and an obvious anti-Semite. But as Davidson himself noted, she's acquired plenty of Jewish allies and defenders, "including Jeremy Ben-Ami, Mark Hetfield, Rabbi Jill Jacobs and Brad Lander."

For years now, Jews across western Europe have been the targets of harassment by Muslims. Police officers stand guard outside of synagogues. Recently, when I stayed in the Jewish Quarter in Rome, I couldn't help notice the presence of multiple police kiosks, each manned by an armed cop. Many Jews in European cities have long since ceased wearing yarmulkes or Stars of David. Jewish kids are instructed by their parents to avoid identifying themselves as Jews at school lest they be beaten up by their little Muslim friends.

Europe: Migrant Crisis Reaches Spain

  • "The biggest migration movements are still ahead: Africa's population will double in the next decades. A country like Egypt will grow to 100 million people, Nigeria to 400 million. In our digital age with the internet and mobile phones, everyone knows about our prosperity and lifestyle." — German Development Minister Gerd Müller.
  • "Young people all have cellphones and they can see what's happening in other parts of the world, and that acts as a magnet." — Michael Møller, Director of the United Nations office in Geneva.
  • "If we do not manage to solve the central problems in African countries, ten, 20 or even 30 million immigrants will arrive in the European Union within the next ten years." — Antonio Tajani, President of the European Parliament.

Spain is on track to overtake Greece as the second-biggest gateway for migrants entering Europe by sea. The sudden surge in migration to Spain comes amid a crackdown on human smuggling along the Libya-Italy sea route, currently the main migrant point of entry to Europe.
The westward shift in migration routes from Greece and Italy implies that Spain, situated only ten miles from Africa by sea, may soon find itself at the center of Europe's migration crisis.
More than 8,300 illegal migrants have reached Spanish shores during the first seven months of 2017 — three times as many as in all of 2016, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

Fr. Bob Warren's Week Reflection for the 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time


Clouds
THIS WEEK'S REFLECTION from Fr. Bob Warren, SA
Fr. Bob's Reflection for the 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time
In our Gospel today Jesus says to Peter "come." It is a simple invitation, one that Jesus gives us daily. It is the same one that he offered to the rich young man elsewhere in the Gospel. The young man turned away because he had many possessions. Think of the ways you obey this invitation, think of the ways you avoid it. What is it that makes it difficult for us to clasp his hand and come to Jesus? He said to Peter and to us "come" but so often we hesitate.
Peter became frightened. What is it that frightens us the most? What frightens you? It could be waiting for the doctor to call with the results of medical test. Parents are often frightened by what their children are exposed to on TV and the internet. Seniors are often frightened by growing disability and dependency upon others. Mid‑lifers are frightened over losing their jobs, seeing incomes dwindle or their marriages fracture. Sometimes teens are frightened of being counted out by the in‑crowd.
So often we are all frightened to get out of the boat. At the start of our Gospel, Peter does get out of the boat. He showed great faith in the Lord. In the beginning, he was faithful. To be faithful is to take a risk, just as Peter risked in stepping out of that boat.
Actually, the whole human bag is a risk. If you do not know that, you have been living on cloud nine. In the measure that you are really alive, you are risking. You take all sorts of chances without knowing how they will turn out. To marry is to risk. You risk your individual life in the hope of finding it more full with another and the odds today are only 50‑50. To love is to risk. You open yourself to all the burdens that being loved lays on you and many crumble under it.
To become a top flight doctor or lawyer or to be in business is a risk. You may end up terribly narrow and one‑sided, closed to everything except your profession or work. Even to be free is to risk. You can say no to God, betray your Christ with a kiss. In a word, to live humanly is to launch out into a large unknown. To be a Christian is to risk. To begin with, you commit yourself to a Christ you can not see. Your act of faith is just as breathtaking as Peter stepping out of the boat.
Here, you do violence to what you see and hear, touch, smell and taste. You see a criminal on a cross and you say — my Lord and my God. You hear words from a book and they turn for you into the word of God. You taste bread and you eat the body of Christ. It is a risk because you do not have certainty and you realize that faith is more than nice thoughts and feelings. It determines your life.
If we risk in committing ourselves to Christ who we can not see, we risk perhaps more in committing ourselves to a church we can see. For this is a pilgrim church, a community on the way not yet there. A body of sinful men and women who at times are in startling contradiction to the Lord who heads it. To the spirit who gives it life and still it is Christ's community. It is here where he expects us to experience Him and not only to endure it but to love it and take it for better or for worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health until death....
Scripture tells us that to be a disciple of Christ you have to lose your life in order to find it. I do not know what life it is that Christ is asking you to surrender or what it is that keeps you from a deeper relationship with Him. What is it that weakens your faith or stops you from getting out of the boat.... I do know that it is one thing to be faithful when the issues are stark and clear, when you know the way to God and what will end well. When it does not cost anything, does not threaten your way of life but our life is not always like that. There are times when we are lost and we grope in the dark. There are times when we are not sure, when we are afraid to get out of the boat. There are times when we want to rely and depend on someone or something else other than Christ. When the Lord simply says you have your gift, my church and your own conscience, my Grace and your good sense.
So often we forget those wonderful words that we heard from St. Paul in last week's readings, "neither death nor life, neither Angels nor principalities, neither the present or the future, nor powers, neither height nor depth, nor any creature will be able to separate us from the love of God that comes to us in Christ our Lord".
The truth is we are never alone. Note it was only when Peter took his eyes off Christ that he began to sink. Remember the words of Mother Teresa, "God does not call us to be successful but he does call us to be faithful, to keep our eyes on Him, in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health... keep your eyes on Christ.
On a dark winters' night in a small Midwest family community, a two‑story home of a young family caught on fire. The parents and children made their way through the smoke filled home to the outside. As soon as they reached safety, the mother screamed "where is little John?" Just then they heard a wail and looked up to see their 5‑year old son at the bedroom window, crying and rubbing his eyes. The father stood under the window and called out, "jump son. Jump and I will catch you". In between sobs, the boy responded to the voice he knew so well, "but I can't see you. Daddy, I can't see you". The father answered, "But I can see you, so jump". The boy with faith in his father jumped into the smokey darkness and found himself safely cradled in his father's arms.
Sometimes life is like that, we feel like we are on the edge and don't know which way to turn. That is the time to have enough faith to jump into our father's arms. That is the time to get out of the boat and walk toward the Lord. When Peter started to sink, he didn't try to swim back to the boat or call the other disciples to help, no he called to Jesus, Lord save me.

How much should tech firms police hate speech?
In the wake of racist demonstrations that turned violent over the weekend, thoughts turn to how tech can help. On one hand, neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer was kicked off GoDaddy then denied a home by Google, and AirBnb has blocked users that used the site to organize the rally. On the other, white supremacist content is rife on sites like Twitter and Facebook. Wired investigates how Internet firms must balance freedom of expression with a moral duty to use tech tools to fight hate.

China Is Our Last Diplomatic Hope for North Korea


China Is Our Last Diplomatic Hope for North Korea

by John R. Bolton  •  August 13, 2017 at 1:00 pm

Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice acknowledged last week that America's policies regarding North Korea's nuclear-weapons program over the last three administrations had failed. She said, rightly, "You can call it a failure. I accept that characterization of the efforts of the United States over the last two decades."
Former Vice President Al Gore said much the same. They should know. They served under President Bill Clinton, who started things rolling downhill with the Agreed Framework of 1994. This misbegotten deal provided Pyongyang 500,000 tons of heavy fuel oil annually and two light-water nuclear reactors in exchange for the North's promise to abandon its nuclear-weapons efforts.
Pyongyang violated its promise before the ink was dry. In 1999, former Secretary of State James Baker denounced Clinton's approach as "a policy of appeasement." Baker's characterization also applies to much of the subsequent U.S. diplomacy. North Korea has always been willing to promise to abandon its nuclear ambitions to get tangible economic benefits. It just never gets around to honoring its commitments.
