    As Gaza terrorists breached the ceasefire and renewed their rocket fire on Israeli civilian centers Tuesday, Arab terrorists in the Israeli capital of Jerusalem apparently didn't want to be left out of the action. Two molotov cocktail attacks were launched in the eastern part of Jerusalem late Tuesday night. In the first incident two firebombs were hurled at an Egged bus driving on Yericho Road towards Moti Gur St., which passes adjacent to the Old City to the east. One of the two molotov cocktails exploded on impact, setting the bus on fire. No injuries were caused, but the bus...

    Not long after Al Qaeda published a story in its online magazine, Inspire, about how to make pressure cooker bombs, the Boston Marathon became a victim of those devices. Since that time America’s hopscotch media with its 24/7-be-the-first-to-report-a-story mentality has covered riots in Egypt, red lines in Syria, Paula Dean’s racism, Oprah Winfrey’s Switzerland trip, defunding Obamacare, shutting down the government for the 100th time and endless hours debating the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman incident. Meanwhile, ever-vigilant global jihadists have been creating new and better ways of economic terrorism which may be less visible than flying planes into buildings or attacking...

    IDF soldiers opened fire on Wednesday night at two terrorists who approached an IDF position near the community of Einav in northern Samaria.

    Two unknown attackers hurled firebombs (Molotov cocktails) at a Jewish supermarket in Sarcelles, near Paris, France on Wednesday. According to JSS News, only one of the homemade firebombs actually exploded; the second proved to be a dud.

But the incident appears to have been even more serious, according to the description by Sammy Ghozlan, president of the National Bureau of Vigilance Against Anti-Semitic Acts (BNVCAA). Ghozlan said the two attackers threw “a grenade into the supermarket.” Both had their faces covered,...

Suspects have been arrested in the attack. The Koula family is part of the local Garin Torani (Torah nucleus group), a group of religious-Zionist families that lives in the city and works to bolster Jewish...

Carnahan did not say the man's name but did confirm that the name Chris Powers made public this morning on a right-wing blog once worked for his campaign. According to Carnahan, Powers volunteered for his campaign in July and was hired this month as a political canvasser -- a job he kept for five days before being let go for "failing to do his job."

    Three Malaysian churches were attacked with firebombs, causing extensive damage to one, as Muslims pledged Friday to prevent Christians from using the word "Allah," escalating religious tensions in the multiracial country. Many Malay Muslims, who make up 60 percent of the population, are incensed by a recent High Court decision to overturn a ban on Roman Catholics using "Allah" as a translation for God in the Malay-language edition of their main newspaper, the Herald. The government says Allah, an Arabic word that predates Islam, is exclusive to the faith and by extension to Malays. It refuses to make an exception,...

Four years later, the situation remains unchanged: The state is still a tool for bestowing benefits and favors, corruption in the public sector is still rampant, and all attempts at educational reform have quickly fizzled out.
