News and Analysis (1/14/17)

"Rex Tillerson's testimony diverges substantially from Trump's positions on several key issues. Will he have the autonomy to pursue his views, or will he be marginalized, as Colin Powell was under George W. Bush?" ... "Tillerson said that Americans should not be afraid of Muslims and that through his travel to Muslim countries, he has gained an 'appreciation and recognition of this great faith'": ... but "Tillerson hasn't ruled out the return of ... a [Muslim] registry,"according to CBS News, so Rep.

But actually it makes me think if it can happen to me in the centre of London, itís happening everywhere. People just donít seem able to talk about it": "[C]ondensing a thousand years of Islamic history" into one book chapter omits the Muslim cultural influence on Spanish music and Italian architecture leaving only "'Arab armies' and the rise of early modern Muslim empires":
