We recently learned that at least one of the jihadists who killed 129 people in Paris held a Syrian refugee passport. And now a high-ranking Syrian diplomat says this may be just the tip of the iceberg.

First, Socialist French politicians loudly backed brutal jihadists in Syria to overthrow the dictatorship of Bashar al-Assad. Then they supported open borders so those same jihadists and their victims could flood into Europe, where the law-abiding populace has been largely disarmed and left defenseless by those same politicians. Now, the French government and Western politicians are feigning shock over the tragic but entirely predictable terrorist attack that claimed more than 120 lives in Paris. And if the same sort of policies continue, which appears likely at this point, analysts say more attacks in the future are all but inevitable.

The Obama administration is showering U.S. military support on Kurdish forces across Syria and Iraq, including backing for militant communist factions officially designated as terrorist organizations and their close allies. All of it is taking place under the guise of battling the Islamic State, a savage terror group that top U.S. officials and declassified documents have revealed was largely created by Obama's supposed “anti-ISIS” coalition. One major problem for the administration is that, like its well-documented support for self-declared al-Qaeda forces in Syria and Libya, it is a serious crime under U.S. law to provide aid to organizations designated by the U.S. government as terrorists. But it is hardly the first time Washington, D.C., has been caught supporting both Islamist and communist terror groups in the region in recent years.  

Let's call it what it was: a killing spree enabled by politicians who kept the victims from being able to defend themselves.

The European Union and climate alarmists are apparently getting nervous. When the Polish people went to the polls late last month, a victory for the center-right Law and Justice Party, which is skeptical of the EU, global-warming alarmism, and open borders, already looked relatively certain. By the time the votes were counted, though, it was clear that the socially conservative party with affinities for government intervention in the economy had absolutely dominated the election. It now holds the presidency and both houses of Parliament. How much will change, though, remains unclear.
