Why People Believe America Is the ‘Greatest Threat to Peace’

Last week the International Business Times reported: "In their annual End of Year poll, researchers for WIN and Gallup International surveyed more than 66,000 people across 65 nations and found that 24 percent of all respondents answered that the United States ‘is the greatest threat to peace in the world today.’ Pakistan and China fell…

Most Jews Wish You a Merry Christmas

As a Jew, and a religious one at that, I want to wish my fellow Americans a Merry Christmas. Not "Happy Holidays." Merry Christmas.
