October 16, 2016 By Leah Soibel Thousands of Christians from around the world are visiting Jerusalem this week tracing the footsteps of Jesus through the cobbled winding streets of the Old City as they do every Sukkot, one of the three Jewish festivals where Jews made the pilgrimage to the Temple centuries ago, but now a UNESCO resolution negates these events ever happened. It is hardly shocking that Iran, along with several Arab countries, voted in favor of the draft resolution by the U.N cultural body last week, in a move widely viewed as denying the historic and religious ties...

Today Latinos are the fastest growing ethnic group in the country and expected to be the...

Besides, I was deployed abroad and one does not think very much about these type of things at such a young age and removed from the day-to-day...
