According to our recently proposed treaty with the Iranian government, Iran keeps much of its nuclear program while agreeing to slow its path to weapons-grade enrichment. The Iranians also get crippling economic sanctions lifted.
One of track star Jesse Owens’ gold medals, won during the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin at a time when Nazi propaganda was putting forth a message of Ayran supremacism, has been put up for online auction.
Actor James Woods, a Hollywood hero for conservatives who's been outspoken against President Obama and his policies, took the Comic-Con stage in New York to speak on what he saw as a more inspirational subject: America's future ability to make great scientific leaps and bounds.
The ongoing negotiations with Iran are painfully reminiscent of extended British negotiations with Nazi Germany during the late 1930s, involving various concessions in exchange for arms limitations and other promises ("Netanyahu: Iran nuclear pact a 'bad deal,'" Web, Nov. 17). Neville Chamberlain's infamous concession on the "settlement" of the Czechoslovakian Sudetenland question didn't yield the hoped-for "peace in our time." That fateful betrayal of a hapless country only spurred Hitler's war preparations.
On occasion, a book crosses my desk with a viewpoint so daft that I find myself checking the dust jacket to reassure myself that it emanated from an ostensibly reliable source, not some crank who lives out under the viaduct.
Picasso and Matisse and Chagall — oh my. A treasure trove worth of artwork seized by Nazis in Holocaust-era Germany and valued at $1.35 billion has been discovered inside the dilapidated Munich home of an 80-year-old recluse.
On Nov. 9, 1938, Nazis attacked Jewish communities in three countries. Seventy-five years later, families pass down the story of Kristallnacht — the chaotic "night of broken glass" that ushered in the Holocaust — as a warning and a plea.
Everybody does it, but nobody does it like Barack Obama
The British historian Frederick Taylor has written so brilliantly and incisively about Adolf Hitler that it is no surprise that he has turned his attention to the German economic meltdown generally credited with allowing that madman to take control of one of Europe's great nations.
A friend of mine had a similar experience to that of writer Jeffrey Scott Shapiro, albeit 30 years ago ("No Dachau? No Auschwitz? Ignoring just as evil as denying," Commentary, Oct. 18). When my friend visited Dachau, he encountered a German population that professed to know nothing (or pretended to know nothing) about what had occurred there. There was universal denial and no acceptance of blame for those who had been killed.
The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons won this year's Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for its efforts to stop the chemical warfare that has haunted the world from Hitler's gas chambers to the battlefields of Syria.
A Jewish newlywed couple was horrified when they sat down to watch their wedding video for the first time only to hear the cameraman going on an anti-Semitic rant.
Britain's scheme for the 'regulation' of newspapers is a front for oppression
Sen. John McCain's words on the Senate floor last week were disingenuous and blatantly pro-Obama ("John McCain rips Ted Cruz's Obamacare Nazi comparison," Web, Sept. 25). Whenever a moral principle is at stake, "the Maverick" consistently votes liberal Democrat, dissembles and twists the issue to take other self-centered, career-minded Republicans with him.
War fever is exciting, thrilling even, and it's contagious. Where it stops, none can tell. Prudent presidents go slowly, keeping all options open, measuring their response twice to cut it once.
