  • Netanyahu Fails To Form Israel Government As Rival Benny Gantz Set To Try

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has suffered a serious defeat in his bid to stay on as premier by failing to form a new coalition government, but his rival faced similar difficulties as he set about the same task on Tuesday. Ex-military chief Benny Gantz will now be given the chance to try to negotiate a coalition, but a deadlock following polls held on September 17 remains -- and yet another election cannot be ruled out. It would be Israel's third vote within a year, after Netanyahu also failed to form a coalition following April polls. His decision to inform...
  • No longer the obedient NATO ally, Erdogan floats nuclear option

    (CNN)It's no secret that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan sees his country as the pre-eminent Muslim power in the Middle East. He regards his vision of political Islam as competing with that of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. He frequently accuses the United States of trying to belittle his country, and ruminates about a "greater Turkey." But does Erdogan believe that Turkey has the right or need to acquire nuclear weapons to cement its status? Last month the Turkish leader suggested as much, saying that "some countries have missiles with nuclear warheads, not one or two. But we...

When he fled from his son Absalom. 1 Lord, how many are my foes!     How many rise up against me! 2 Many are saying of me,     “God will not deliver him.”[b] 3 But you, Lord, are a shield around me,     my glory, the One who lifts my head high. 4 I call out to the Lord,     and he answers me from his holy mountain. 5 I lie down and sleep;     I wake again, because the Lord sustains me. 6 I will not fear though tens of thousands...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren has threatened that as president she would consider cutting off U.S. aid to Israel if the country moves against a two-state solution, but last year, she condemned President Trump for cutting off aid to intransigent Palestinians. The Democratic front-runner said regarding aid to Israel, "Right now, Netanyahu says he is going to take Israel in a direction of increasing settlements. That does not move us toward a two-state solution." She added, "It is the official policy of the United States of America to support a two-state solution, and if Israel is moving in the opposite direction, then...

    President Trump said Monday that Israel and Jordan had asked him to leave a limited number of troops in Syria. He also said he doesn’t believe it will be necessary to leave U.S. troops in Syria except to secure oil fields, describing the region as “very dangerous territory.” "I don't think it's going to be necessary. I don't want to leave any troops there. That's very dangerous territory," Trump told reporters during a cabinet meeting. "I don't think it's necessary other than we secure the oil. It's a little different section, but we need to secure the oil." “The other...

    INDIANOLA, Iowa — Elizabeth Warren issued a warning to Israel if it continues building settlements in the West Bank. The Massachusetts senator was asked after a town hall in Iowa whether she was open to making U.S. aid conditional on an agreement with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to halt construction in a territory Israel won in a defensive war in 1967, which is home to about 3 million Palestinians and roughly 400,000 Jews. "Right now, Netanyahu says that he is going to take Israel in a direction of increasing settlements. That does not move us toward a two-state solution....

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) has received a lot of criticism for the surpassing crudity of her declaration about the President — “We’re going to impeach the motherf***er”– and in the last few days for offering the phrase for sale on a t-shirt — but less attention has been given to the company she keeps. As far back as her swearing-in, and at a private dinner she held that same day, many unsavory “Palestinian” activists were in attendance. It should be remembered that at her victory party, Tlaib wrapped herself not in the American, but in the “Palestinian” flag, and...

    Senator Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) took a hard line on Israel Saturday saying "everything is on the table" in imposing a two-state solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict. "It is the official policy of the United States of America to support a two-state solution, and if Israel is moving in the opposite direction, then everything is on the table," Warren said during a press availability with reporters Saturday. In a formulation more commonly deployed by previous presidents in threatening the use of force against America’s enemies, Warren repeated the phrase but did not clarify precisely what pressure—military or otherwise—might be brought...

  • On Syria, Trump is playing the lousy cards Obama dealt him

    NY Post ^ | October 20 2019 | Post Editorial Board
    Chaos and horrors followed President Trump’s needlessly abrupt withdrawal of US forces from northern Syria, but much of the mess was baked in long before Trump ever took office. In other words, this president played the anti-ISIS hand that the last president had left him: An American exit was always in the cards, and all the players are falling into positions prompted by Obama-era US policy. Thus the Syrian Kurds have allied with bloody Bashar al-Assad in the face of the Turkish invasion. This is less strange when you realize that the Obama administration chose the Kurds as its anti-ISIS...

    Michigan Independent Rep. Justin Amash blasted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a “Donald Trump asset,” arguing in a Friday night Twitter post that Clinton’s criticism of Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard will only “drive many people into the arms of Donald Trump.” “The thing we know for sure is that Hillary Clinton is a Donald Trump asset,” Amash, a frequent Trump critic who recently left the Republican Party to become an Independent, tweeted Friday night. “Hillary does — and did — drive many people into the arms of Donald Trump. Her attack on Tulsi does likewise. In my...

    President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign believes the ongoing fight over impeachment will rally the party’s base and make the difference in key races next year. Members of the Trump campaign’s communications team told MLive that House Democrats only flipped Republican seats in 2018 because 8.8 million people who voted for Trump in 2016 stayed home during the midterm elections. Tim Murtaugh, communications director for Trump’s 2020 campaign, said House Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry will bolster Trump’s prospects of reelection and GOP candidates’ chances of victory down the ballot. In 2018, GOP candidates lost races for all statewide offices, control of...

    The first member of the House of Representatives of Palestinian origin, Rashida Tlaib managed to change the momentum on the Palestinian question. She is fighting tooth and nail, with three other Democratic women representatives, to get Donald Trump removed from office. Michigan, bordering Canada, is best known for its once flourishing automotive industry. But the 2008 election of a Muslim woman of Palestinian origin to the Michigan House of Representatives revealed another aspect: Michigan’s strong Arab-American community. “Miss First” elected with 84% of the vote The eldest daughter of a Palestinian couple of modest background, Rashida Tlaib is the only...

    The Club for Growth, which opposed Trump in the 2016 primary, is spending $40,000 to show the ad in Utah. The Club for Growth, a conservative advocacy group, is going up with TV ads attacking Sen. Mitt Romney — a preemptive warning shot against fellow Republicans who are considering getting behind impeachment. The 30-second commercial, which will begin running Thursday digitally and on Fox News stations in Utah, portrays Romney as a sunglasses-wearing spy and accuses him of being a “Democrat secret asset” who is “plotting to take down President Trump with impeachment.” The move comes as the first-term Utah...

    House Democrats believe they have the 217 votes needed to pass articles of impeachment against President Trump stemming from his Ukraine call -- enough votes to impeach Trump and send articles to the Senate -- even before their planned hearings or formal investigation. A senior member of the House Democratic Caucus told Fox News on Sunday it's unlikely House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will give in to the president's demand for an "inquiry vote." The source said that while leadership hasn't officially whipped or nose-counted a vote to "impeach," they believed the numbers were there based on the 227 votes...

    Tel Aviv University researchers, in collaboration with scholars from Spain, have uncovered evidence of the storage and delayed consumption of animal bone marrow at Qesem Cave near Tel Aviv, the site of many major discoveries from the late Lower Paleolithic period some 400,000 years ago. The research provides direct evidence that early Paleolithic people saved animal bones for up to nine weeks before feasting on them inside Qesem Cave... The researchers contend that the deer metapodials were kept at the cave covered in skin to facilitate the preservation of marrow for consumption in time of need. The researchers evaluated the...

    Dietary change led to the appearance of modern humans in the Middle East 400,000 years ago, say TAU researchersElephants have long been known to be part of the Homo erectus diet. But the significance of this specific food source, in relation to both the survival of Homo erectus and the evolution of modern humans, has never been understood — until now. When Tel Aviv University researchers Dr. Ran Barkai, Miki Ben-Dor, and Prof. Avi Gopher of TAU's Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near Eastern Studies examined the published data describing animal bones associated with Homo erectus at the Acheulian site...

    BINGHAMTON, NY – Eight small teeth found in a cave near Rosh Haain, central Israel, are raising big questions about the earliest existence of humans and where we may have originated, says Binghamton University anthropologist Rolf Quam. Part of a team of international researchers led by Dr. Israel Hershovitz of Tel Aviv University, Qaum and his colleagues have been examining the dental discovery and recently published their joint findings in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology. Excavated at Qesem cave, a pre-historic site that was uncovered in 2000, the size and shape of the teeth are very similar to those...
