U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry reiterated accusations that Russia was hitting "legitimate opposition groups" and civilians with its bombing...

    A brutal ISIS torturer wasn't the only jihadist terrorist who traveled with former British MP George Galloway to Gaza, it has been revealed. According to a recent report, Alexander Kotey left the UK on Galloway's "Viva Palestina" convoy to Gaza in 2009, and from there eventually made his way to Syria to join the Islamic State terror group. [...] As many as eight Muslim extremists who would later be convicted of or involved in terrorist activities joined the convoy, according to The Times. Among them were Amin Addala and Reza Afsharzadegan, both known associates of Emwazi from west London; and...

    The man who fatally shot presidential candidate Robert Kennedy nearly half a century ago faces a parole board in California. Sirhan Sirhan, 71, will have his 15th such hearing at the Richard J Donovan Correctional Facility near San Diego on Wednesday. The Palestinian-born Sirhan is serving a life sentence for opening fire on the political scion at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles on 5 June 1968. He has denied having any recollection of the killing, but has also said he targeted Kennedy because of his support for Israel. Sirhan was last denied parole in 2011, when the board ruled...

    ... There is no other way to describe it: the Obama policy is to let the Russian/Iranian/Hezbollah axis take over Syria. That is what the current battle for Aleppo is all about. Times columnist Roger Cohen argues that "It is too late, as well as pure illusion, to expect significant change in Obama's Syria policy." But he proposes that Obama should at least increase the number of Syrian refugees taken in this year to 65,000, as opposed to his currently proposed 10,000. But letting in more refugees scares Americans who suspect that there will be terrorists among them. Such a...

    Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem Character Studies From The Bible Paul (Paul's First Letter to The Corinthians) 12 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body-whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free-and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14 Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many. 15 Now if the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand,...

    After refusing to sell Israel new planes for several years, mostly for fear that Israel would turn around and go bomb Iran with them, the White House now agreed in principle to let Israel buy the Boeing KC-46A Pegasus, using the US security assistance package. According to Walla, the Dept. of Defense initially offered Israel to purchase older models, to make room on its shelves for the new merchandize, but Israel refused, and started spreading hints that if Obama won’t give her what she needs, she can always get it from the next tenant in 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. So last...

    What does the average European think about the recent EU decision to label Jewish goods from Judea-Samaria? The Lev HaOlam organization set up shop in a central Amsterdam square to find out. Equipped with a tray of chocolates produced in Hevron, they group offered the chocolates to passersby and asked if they'd heard about the EU's controversial decision. Surprisingly, many of the tasters said they had not heard about the decision to label so-called "settlement" products. "If we chanced upon those who'd heard about the decision, we were embraced with a hug and passionate support," said Lev HaOlam chairman Nati...

Text of the bill notes that the law bans "the practice of seeking to change a person's sexual orientation, including, but not limited to, efforts...

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Those who view Israel as a stepping stone for redemption and as the Jewish national spiritual homeland will act differently in responding to Palestinian violence than those who view Israel merely as a safe haven. Thus, the government should do more than just approve security operations against the terrorists. It should approve increased construction in Judea and Samaria and in Jerusalem.
