May 2011

All-Pro, All-American

May 31, 2011 // The Economist - U.K.

The function of profits in a dynamic economy, Mr Romney would go on to suggest, is one of many things Barack Obama does not grasp.

The 1967 Border Controversy

May 31, 2011 // The Jordan Times - Jordan

The Obama suggestion that the border of the future Palestinian state should be based on the 1967 lines “with mutually agreed swaps” contradicts the provisions of Security Council Resolution 242, and therefore it is as illegal as the unilateral decision to abolish the “right of return” or to define Israel as a state for the Jewish people.

May 31, 2011 // The Nation - Pakistan
