Kerry's Kerfuffle

As we reported yesterday, while Israelis were in the midst of somber observances for Holocaust Remembrance Day, news broke that Secretary of State John Kerry had said that Israel was at risk of becoming an "apartheid state" unless it acquiesced to the creation of a Palestinian state.

That was is an incredibly offensive comment given the historical background of the modern state of Israel. The modern Jewish state emerged in 1948 out of the ashes...

Wrestling With Race

Yesterday, to the chagrin of the Obama Administration and leftists everywhere, the Supreme Court handed down a principled decision on the use of race as a criterion for college admissions. By a surprising 6-to-2 vote the court upheld the right of Michigan voters to eliminate a practice euphemistically known as affirmative action. In 2006, 58% of Michigan voters approved a constitutional amendment stopping race-based admissions.
