The very Germans who couldn’t bring themselves to spit at a Greek dying of thirst by the side of the road this summer are now flinging the doors open to an influx of migrants from outside Europe (even as Angela Merkel has had second thoughts about it).

    Jeremy Corbyn, the avatar of anti-Americanism

    LONDON — It’s late evening on May 8, 2020, and the telephone rings at No. 10 Downing Street. “For you, Jez: It’s the White House.” “Tell the switchboard to put him on hold, please: I’ve got Hamas on the line and we’ve got a really brilliant idea.” The operator does her practiced best: “Please tell the president the prime...
