Also read:  Has Trump Kept His Word on Radical Islam? The Nikki Haley Report Card   When President Trump chose Marine Corps General Jim “Mad Dog” Mattis as his Secretary of Defense, the cheers could be heard from the moon.

Syrian Kurds Declare ‘Respect for Homosexual Rights’

The Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish-led rebel force that includes Arabs and Christians, just said it has “deep respect for human rights, including the rights of homosexuals.” In a region where homosexuals face severe hatred and even death penalties, those words are rare and powerful.

Both are citizens who entered, exited and re-entered the U.S. Although the Iranian and Syrian regimes regularly organize terrorist attacks through its Hezbollah proxy, the plotting of attacks on U.S. soil and on Americans overseas is very significant, but not unprecedented. The two arrested terrorists are…

US Judge Rules Assad Helped Al-Qaeda Kill Americans

Syrian Christian Militia Condemns Turkey for Bombing Kurds

The Syriac Military Council, a Christian militia in Syria opposed to the Assad regime, condemned Turkey for bombing its U.S.-backed Kurdish allies who are fighting ISIS.
