  • Bang: Trump's Second Barrel Explodes at Jihad

    This is Donald Trump on the latest horror killing in Israel. Read it, and you realize it's not the Trump you thought you knew. ​​I condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the outrageous terrorist shootings that took the lives of at least four innocent civilians and wounded at least twenty others in Tel Aviv yesterday. The Israeli security forces' investigation is ongoing, but some facts have already emerged — and they are grim. Just as fast as the condolences arrive from the civilized world is the praise arising out of the uncivilized one. Hamas praised the attack, calling the attackers...

Israel said a Palestinian attempted to stab an Israeli civilian, who was carrying a gun and then shot and killed the attacker. But a Palestinian man told Reuters that his daughter, a high school student, witnessed the shooting and said it happened when...

Hamas, the Palestinian militant group accused by Israel of taking the boys, has denied kidnapping the teens, though senior Israeli and Palestinian officials agree that the abductors were likely tied to -- or part of -- Hamas but operating without orders from the organization's leadership.

    Cave of the Patriarchs, Hebron. The ancient city of Hebron, twenty miles south of Jerusalem, has long been a source of seething conflict between Arabs and Jews. According to the biblical narrative (Gen. 23), Abraham purchased the Cave of Machpelah for four hundred silver shekels as the burial place for Sarah. It was the first parcel of land owned by the Jewish people in their promised land. It has been a Jewish holy site ever since. King David reigned from Hebron before relocating his throne to Jerusalem to unify his kingdom. But just as Muslims claimed the Temple Mount in...

    Arabs are the culprits behind the destruction Saturday of agricultural fields operated by the Jews of Hevron, say the local Jews. According to a resident of Hevron, Haim Bleicher, some of the Jews discovered the destruction, which included the uprooting of saplings, during their Sabbath family outings. The plot is part of a larger parcel of land that belonged to Jews until 1929, when local Arabs went on an infamous murderous rampage that drove the Jews out. After Hevron was liberated in 1967, some parts of the parcel were handed over to Jews, while others remain in Arab hands. Last...
