A New Promise of Peace in the Near East
Sarah Lee / Townhall Tipsheet

While the Biden administration seeks to leverage easing of diplomatic tensions between Saudi Arabia and Israel to broker a new version of the Iran deal, there are others eyeing the region’s newfound move toward peace who aim for less nakedly political goals.

Instead, the Philos Project will continue its work protecting the fractured Christian community in the region while also taking advantage of the dramatic shift toward unity after decades of war. Robert Nicholson, president of the Philos Project, hopes his organization’s efforts will lead the entire region into accepting the historic role each of the three Abrahamic religions has played in that part of the world – and hopefully toward a more unified and stable region.

But politics, he says, is never completely out of mind.

“What’s unique about the near east is three of the biggest world religions are based there,” Nicholson tells Townhall. And he says it’s not an easy thing to accept that the place where these religions are rooted “is also where so many of these problems come from.”

Top Senate Republican: We’re Not Banning Rifles
Matt Vespa / Townhall Tipsheet 
I want this nightmare to end. The more Democrats and Republicans talk about gun control, the more nervous I get. Bipartisanship could yield good things, but often it’s both parties working to chip away rights and freedoms from its citizens. 

Government used to be a place where people came together. It’s now a place where the political class ends up screwing us, the taxpayer, in more ways than one. Remember the Clinton Foundation, where the wealthy and well-connected dropped massive checks and then would have a favor returned somewhere down the line? Well, expand that dynamic to an entire city—and that’s Washington, DC. 

The good news is that there doesn’t appear to be a new ban on modern sporting rifles in the mix. There doesn’t appear to be a ban on common firearm magazines as well. Texas Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), who is slated to take over as Senate Republican leader once Mitch McConnell leaves, is hurling some dice with these new gun control talks. Read more and see tweets here.
