Will Oil Make or Break the Islamic State?

September 18, 2014  •  Gatestone Institute

Strolling through Jerusalem's historic Yemin Moshe quarter on a pleasant August morning, my ears caught a ringing, melodic sound emanating from within the walls of the Old City, perhaps half a mile from where I stood. This being a Sunday, the sound I heard was the chiming of church bells, welcoming Christian worshippers to morning services.

August 12, 2014  •  JNS/The Algemeiner
