Geroge F. Will: A middle course on foreign policy

GeorgWill.jpg WASHINGTON -- With metronomic regularity, there is a choreographed minuet of carnage. Israel is attacked. Israel defends itself. Perfunctory affirmations of Israel's right of self-defense are quickly followed by accusations that Israel's military measures are disproportionate. Then come demands for a cease-fire, and the attackers replenish their arsenals.

Froma Harrop: What scares Americans about child migrants

FromaHarrop2013-c.jpg The numbers are small for a large country like this, but the alarm is big over the influx of Central American children coming over the southern border. People are merging this special case involving about 57,000 children with generalized anxiety about a broken immigration system that has resulted in an estimated 11 million illegal residents.

Mark Shields: Guns not OK where pro-gun politicians work

Shields-c.jpg Its official title is the "Safe Carry Protection Act," and when it was signed by Georgia's Republican Gov. Nathan Deal, the National Rifle Association praised it as the "most comprehensive pro-gun bill in state history." That's because, under its provisions, Georgia residents are now able to carry guns into churches, bars and public buildings. Georgia teachers, with a green light from their school board, can carry guns into their classrooms. This may explain why the statute is better known as the "Guns Everywhere" law.

Diane Dimond: Liberating the White House from the political money game

Dimond-Diane-color.jpg Let's face it. We have too many antiquated laws on the books. Our laws often fail to keep up with the times. I mean, do we really need a statute that prohibits rams from trespassing as they have in New Jersey? Or a law that makes it a crime to carry fruit in an illegally sized container as Minnesota recently struck down?

Secretary General Ban ki-Moon, found so difficult to utter: "There is literally no safe place for civilians (in Gaza)". More than 600 have been killed by the relentless Israeli bombardment from air, land and sea. Five hundred homes have been destroyed, many of them with entire families inside them.
