    Dozens of Jewish men were abducted and beaten in a mob attack in the Binyamin region on Tuesday afternoon. The men were set upon by an Arab mob, chased down, tied up and beaten senseless. One of the men told Arutz Sheva about the vicious attack. The men were attacked as they were walking from the Jewish village of Esh Kodesh to the nearby Givat Hayovel. Suddenly, they were set upon by an Arab mob, he said. “They blocked us in with trucks. The Arabs started hurling rocks at the Jewish group.” The Jews were forced to hide nearby, he...

  • State officials keep boy “captive” for four years (Children 'Belong' to Community-Sweden)

    Four years ago a seven-year-old boy was taken from his parents as the family boarded an international flight. Armed police seized the boy, although they did not have arrest warrants, and he was placed in a foster home. The boy has still not been restored to his parents, and for three years they have not been allowed to see him at all. What on earth could these parents have done to their child? Had they abused and starved him? Neglected him and damaged his health? Psychologically tortured him? No, none of those things. So where could this nightmarish scenario have...

    The girls in this picture have no connection to this story. In fact, it's a sad comment on the state of our people that when I did a Google image search for 'Jewish girls' (no quotation marks), every one that came up before this one was arguably pornographic. Seven Jewish girls between the ages of 11-18 have been abducted in the past month by Bedouin men in southern Israel. At least one was raped. Seven victims last month alone are aged 11-18. These are only cases that were reported to police but many others are believed to have taken place...

    Los Angeles - No doubt Sammy Hagar, a former lead singer for Van Halen, has enjoyed a lot of far out experiences in life, but on Monday, the rocker told perhaps his farthest out tale to MTV. He was abducted by aliens. Or, at least, his brain was. (Snip) Hagar laughs and goes on to explain that a passage in the book described as a dream in which he is contacted by aliens from outer space in California was, in fact, reality. The tale describes how the beings tapped into his mind through a wireless connection.

    GATLINBURG, Tenn. (May 29) — Chris Turner normally wouldn't drive 30 miles into the remote Tennessee mountains just to deliver a pizza. The one time he did, he came upon a scene that drained the color from his face and made him "numb from head to toe" — a woman with her hands tied, silently begging him to call 911. It was no joke, and Turner, 32, rushed to a nearby house and made that call.

    MONTERREY, Mexico (Reuters) – An American anti-kidnapping expert who was himself abducted last week in northern Mexico was likely snatched by drug traffickers seeking to protect their turf, police said on Tuesday. Gunmen hauled Felix Batista into a white SUV outside a restaurant last week in the relatively safe industrial city of Saltillo in Coahuila state, where he was giving seminars on security to police and business people. Batista, a Cuban-American from Miami who is credited with negotiating the release of people abducted by Colombian rebels, was snatched when he stepped outside the restaurant after answering a cell phone call,...

    WANA, Pakistan (Reuters) - Sixteen Pakistani paramilitary soldiers were missing on Thursday in a region regarded as a hotbed of support for the Taliban and al Qaeda, and security officials feared militants may have abducted them. The men went missing while being transported back to their base in Jandola, 50 km (30 miles) east of Wana, the main town in South Waziristan, a semi-autonomous tribal land on the border with Afghanistan. "They were supposed to reach Jandola in the evening, but so far we have no information about their whereabouts," military spokesman Major-General Waheed Arshad said. A security official in...

Hamas-controlled Palestinian Authority sources confirmed the abduction to the AP, whose President and Chief Executive Officer Tom Curley issued a statement denouncing the kidnapping. "It is a sad development when the men and women the world rely on to bring them objective news are subject to such dangers. No cause or motive can justify such senseless...

Chunks of her long, brown hair had been ripped out of her head and her body horribly bruised. As ex-con Draymond Coleman, 34, and his prostitute girlfriend were...

    Outgoing, gung-ho and gregarious. As the picture of kidnapped reporter Jill Carroll emerges, a school friend from her days in Ann Arbor says it's those same qualities that will help her survive.

    Prosecutors: Teen abducted children for demonic ritual Monday, November 28, 2005; Posted: 7:29 a.m. EST (12:29 GMT) CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- An 18-year-old Chicago man was arrested after allegedly kidnapping two young children to perform a demonic ritual intended to get back his former girlfriend, authorities said. David Rodriguez was being held on $500,000 bond.
