Quotes for our Times:
Matt Vespa is the Senior Editor at Townhall. com: The Muslim world is on fire.
A misfire from a rocket attack in Gaza reportedly killed hundreds yesterday. Islamic Jihad’s failed salvo into Israel led to one projectile striking a hospital. Without analysis or evidence, news outlets worldwide blamed Israel for striking the facility, creating an uproar among far-left and anti-Israeli voices.
The Palestinian genocide propagandists and conspiracy theorists had a field day, and it even got attention from the usual terrorist-sympathizing suspects in Congress. There hasn’t been much effort to correct the record, which set off a blaze across the Muslim world. There were also protests in Berlin, Canada, Greece, and Spain. Hordes gathered near the Israeli and American embassies in Amman and Beirut, respectively. The American embassy in Baghdad was besieged. Hamas has scored its first propaganda win, and they know exactly who will fall for their lies and how the echo chamber effect will maximize damage to the pro-Israeli cause.
Tim Graham, executive editor of News-Busters and director of media analysis for the Media Research Center: When the media's humility died in darkness.
Leftist reporters should have the humility to suggest they are just a part of democracy, and another part of democracy is people criticizing the crusading reporters. It's a part of democracy to say The Washington Post is a pack of arrogant jerks seeking to destroy Republicans and elect Democrats. That viewpoint should never 'die in darkness.'
Byron York, chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner: GOP Candidate: The 2024 race is 'stuck'.
But that is the state of the Republican race now. And one last thing: Therein lies opportunity. Yes, it is possible, even likely, that Trump's lead will go on and on and he'll win the nomination and everybody else will lose. But there has never been a race with this level of uncertainty before. Next year promises to be highly eventful, and there is no guarantee Trump, facing trials and voters, will maintain his current level of support. And if he does not, the Republican candidate who is best prepared, who has put himself or herself in the best position, will take advantage of Trump's problems. We don't know who that might be, or if it will happen at all. But that's what Tim Scott and all the other GOP candidates not named Trump are doing right now.
Betsy McCaughey, Ph.D, former Lt. Governor of New York State and author of Beating Obamacare: United Nations is useless.
Haley, now a presidential contender, has long protested the U.N.'s anti-Israel bias and corruption. Hers is a voice of moral clarity. She tweeted, 'Hamas is evil & must be eradicated. We must stand with Israel — not just when it is hit, but also when it hits back.'
Ever since the Holocaust, the world has vowed, 'Never again.' The U.N. is not up to keeping that promise.
The world needs a new international organization dominated by democratic leaders, instead of thugs and despots. Biden is incapable, but our next president should get it done.
