Over the next three months, the fate of the Iran nuclear agreement and U.S. relations with Iran fall to President Trump and congressional leaders. There is no one as important as Sen. Ben Cardin in determining the fate of this relationship.
The United Arab Emirates has gifted Johns Hopkins Medicine $50 million to create a global stroke center to come up with better ways to treat a disease that kills and disables millions of people in both countries.
The Baltimore Council on Foreign Affairs says it will allow a controversial commentator on Islam and the Middle East to address its meeting Thursday night despite calls from Muslim and Arab advocacy groups to rescind his invitation to speak.
Once again I am confounded by a decision made by President Trump. Unfortunately this is becoming an all too frequent situation. For the life of me, I can’t figure out in what direction he wants to take our national foreign policy.
Moving the United States embassy to Jerusalem gives form to the truism that Jerusalem is, has been and always will be the capital of the Jewish state, much as it has never been the capital of any other. And that it will remain so in any final resolution of the conflict.
Clemenceau Medical Center is one of 19 projects in the growing portfolio of Johns Hopkins Medicine International, the arm of the Baltimore-based institution that’s charged with taking the Hopkins mission and brand global.
A unanimous Supreme Court revived President Donald J. Trump's travel ban Monday, allowing the government to impose restrictions on some people traveling to the United States from six mostly Muslim countries.
When Jaina Maultsby traveled to Israel nearly a decade ago with a program created by Baltimore Rep. Elijah E. Cummings it was the first time she had ever left the country, stepped on an airplane or been forced to live with people from vastly different backgrounds.
President Trump called for the destruction of terrorists, but he talked of them as if they were foreign invaders to be driven out of the swamp, not products of it. Like the man who only has a hammer and therefore thinks every problem is a nail, Mr. Trump believes that the Middle East's problems can be solved with terrific "deals."

As President Trump continues to reach out to the world's despots — praising the "fantastic job" done by Egyptian strongman Abdel Fattah el-Sisi; saying he would be "honored" to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong Un; inviting death squad promoter and Philippines' president Rodrigo Duterte to the White House; congratulating Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on maintaining rule; and nurturing a bromance with Russia's Vladimir Putin — he would do well to keep in mind their perennial
One of the scariest parts of the very scary world we live in today is the responsibility that we and our allies bear for the creation of the enemies confronting us.

The day after the United States bombed airfields in Syria to punish the Assad regime for the chemical slaughter of civilians, the Justice Department quietly filed its latest brief defending a ban on refugees from that country. Next month, appeals courts on both coasts will debate the matter, hearing argument in cases from Maryland and Hawaii, where two district judges found that a revised presidential order blocking immigrants from certain predominantly Muslim countries violates the
Putting aside whether the missile strike on Syria was the appropriate response, what is troubling is the decision-making process. Whether Mr. Trump guessed right or wrong, sudden lethal moves that reverse longstanding policy are disturbing.
