Separately, officials say up to 200 may have been killed in a wave of attacks in the region this week.

It’s time for the Obama Administration to stand up; it’s time for America to once again lead the world in the pursuit and protection of religious freedom.

With the beheading of a French priest by members of the Islamic State (ISIS) still fresh in the minds of millions, ISIS is now following up that brutal assassination with a verbal assault aimed at Christians – calling Jesus “a slave of Allah” who will “wage jihad” upon returning to earth. This...
It is bewildering, puzzling and unbelievable. The pace, scope, and barbarity of the killing mounts every day. Forty-nine victims were murdered this past June in Orlando . More than eighty victims lost their lives in Nice this past month as part of a continuing terror campaign in which ISIS (the...
