Around the world, the cross is in the crosshairs | Christine M. Flowers at Philadelphia Daily News

    Christine M. Flowers at Philadelphia Daily News: This is not about politics. This is about human rights. Westerners need to realize that just because we prize our “freedom from religion” and stand on top of that euphemistic wall screaming “Keep your rosaries off my ovaries,” people in other parts of the world are dying for their faith. And most of them are dying at the hands of people who subscribe to a twisted vision of Muhammad’s prophecy, one that feels threatened by believers in Christ. It is the same mentality that motivated Hitler to destroy God’s chosen people, the same diseased rationale that led Stalin to burn the churches and imprison its children. Wake up, people. It’s 1939 all over again.

A Veteran Saudi Power Player Works To Build Support to Topple Assad

    Wall Street Journal: Prince Bandar—for two decades one of the most influential deal makers in Washington as Saudi ambassador but who had largely disappeared from public view—is now reprising his role as a geopolitical operator. This time it is to advance the Saudi kingdom’s top foreign-policy goal, defeating Syrian President Assad and his Iranian and Hezbollah allies . . . The conflict there has become a proxy war for Middle East factions, and Saudi Arabia’s efforts in Syria are just one sign of its broader effort to expand its regional influence. The Saudis also have been outspoken supporters of the Egyptian military in its drive to squelch the Muslim Brotherhood, backing that up with big chunks of cash.
