SCOTUS Rulings And Other Monday Links

As the first Monday of summer is now upon us, here are some other things that have recently been upon us:

From NBC News, the Supreme Court, in a 9-0 decision, will allow parts of President Trump's travel pause to take effect, but won't actually decide on its merits until this fall.

From LifeNews, SCOTUS rules that government programs can't exclude Christian organizations just for being Christian organizations.

From Philly(dot)com and the "Are you serious?" department, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Cal) says that her party has momentum.

From Breitbart London, in Sweden, children cannot talk about the Bible or even say "amen", in Christian schools.  (Will children in Islamic schools be likewise forbidden from saying "Allahu akbar" or discussing the Koran?  I won't hold my breath.)

From The Guardian, a Swedish man held by Islamic fighters in Mali has been set free after almost six years.

From the Express, ISIS terrorists in Yemen vandalize the graves of British war heroes.

From Morocco World News, ISIS uses the Koran to justify slavery.

From AhlulBayt News Agency, the Hashd al-Shaabi attack ISIS across the Syria-Iraq border.

From YNetNews, five Muslim artists have asked to have their works removed from an Israeli exhibition.

From the Daily Mail, Australia will deport a Muslim immigrant for kidnapping a girl and forcing her to marry him.

From The American Spectator, it's the new Persian Empire.  (If my understanding of ancient history is correct, there have already been two Persian Empires.  The first conquered Babylon, let the captive Jews go back home, and eventually fell to Alexander the Great.  The second, known as the Sassanid Empire, fought against the Romans and Byzantines, and was later conquered by the Islamic Caliphate.)

From FrontpageMag, the left's hierarchy of victim categories gets tested by a murder in Fairfax County, Virginia.

From National Review, the repeal of Obamacare won't cause mass dying.  (NR also has stories related to the two SCOTUS decisions above, so go ahead and browse around the site.)

From Townhall, some advice for Democrats in 2018.

From Haaretz, a Jewish lesbian asks why she and her Israeli pride flag were excluded from Chicago's Dyke March.  (via The Tower, who report that the ADL wants an apology from the march's organizers)

From ESPN, is John McEnroe sexist, or just realistic?

From Radio Poland, Poland has taken in 1.4 million migrants - from Ukraine.

From Sputnik International, a Ukrainian family seeking asylum in Germany poses as Syrians.   (It seems that they should have tried Poland, instead.  They wouldn't have needed to pose as anything other than what they really are.)

From The Washington Free Beacon, the anti-Trump leak campaign is hurting more than just the president.

From the Independent, the next recession could be caused by countries such as China.

And from HokieSports, former Virginia Tech quarterback Bryan Randall has been inducted into the Virginia High School League Hall of Fame.
