Mark Shields: Here's an opinion poll to consider

Shields-c.jpg A long time ago, maybe in the first Eisenhower administration, my precinct committeewoman taught me the unchanging rules of how to respond to public opinion polls. If the polls show your candidate trailing badly, then simply attack polls and anyone who blindly follows them: "I will always be grateful, as an American, that at Valley Forge, Gen. George Washington did not take any polls. If he had, you and I would still be bowing and curtseying before everyone in the British royal family."

Mona Charen: The U.N. prevents peace

charen-c.jpg The United Nations plays a supporting role in every war between Hamas and Israel. U.N. spokesmen routinely issue statements, accusations and denials about everyone's conduct, including their own (most recently they had to account for why they returned rockets, discovered in a U.N. school, to Hamas). Israel was denounced worldwide for an "attack" on a U.N. school said to be housing 3,000 civilians, but it was actually an attack on particular terrorists on the adjoining street.

Rich Lowry: Protests turning ugly in Europe

The Bergische Synagogue in the German town of Wuppertal has a history with arson. The nearly 120-year-old synagogue was burned down during Kristallnacht in 1938. Rebuilt after World War II, it was targeted again about a week ago by arsonists who threw Molotov cocktails at the house of worship (although, thankfully, they failed to set it aflame).

Letter to the Editor: Schultz' 'race-baiters' column condemned

Only in the tiny and very twisted mind of Connie Schultz would an organization that seeks to save the lives of precious boys and girls be referred to as "race-baiters." I refer to Schultz's scurrilous article that appeared in this paper on Aug. 4.

Diane Dimond: It's Mexico's turn to give back

Dimond-Diane-color.jpg OK -- I'm going to propose something radical. I'm sure it doesn't fit into the strict confines of how our U.S. State Department conducts foreign policy, but here goes ... How about we ask Mexico to do us a favor for once?
