"It's very alarming that someone would be riding a bike with a gun at 11 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day," Abou said Friday. "That man came...

    Israel has decided not to press charges against police involved in firing a tear gas canister that left a US protester severely brain damaged, the justice ministry said on Monday. Tristan Anderson, a 39-year-old activist from California, was shot in the head in the West Bank town of Nilin on March 13, 2009 during a protest against Israel's controversial separation barrier. He can only communicate with basic sounds after being in a coma for months and undergoing several brain surgeries at a Tel Aviv hospital, according to Jonathan Pollak, a friend and fellow activist who has visited him recently.

Four accused shoplifters had been spotted by employees of Albertsons grocery store and were attempting a getaway with less than $50 worth of miscellaneous items when they were spotted by a citizen in the parking lot. The...

    July 24, 2002 -- JERUSALEM - Only a few hours after Israeli intelligence pinpointed the whereabouts of its most wanted terrorist, an Israeli air force jet delivered a "perfect hit" on his lair - with a 1-ton "smart" bomb, officials said yesterday.

Gen. Ran Peker said. But...
