    This anger is not just political, just as the political conflict between Israel and the “Palestinians” isn’t political, either. The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion...

    However, conservative leaders in the House Freedom Caucus, Congressmen Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan are refusing to join the surrender chorus. While they aren’t exactly fighting the accusations, at least they aren’t completely caving: “You can’t unring a bell,” said Meadows, the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, when asked if he is still endorsing Moore. “At this point, it’s up to Alabama to figure out — Washington D.C.’s not going to decide that. The people of Alabama will.” “Look, I’m like everyone else,” Jordan said when asked about his endorsement. “If this turns out to be true then he...

    French president Emmanuel ignored controversy and criticism surrounding France’s new draconian anti-terror bill and urged police forces around the country to “fully utilize” their new powers. The French parliament on Wednesday adopted a controversial anti-terror bill that gives the authorities permanent new powers to search homes, shut places of worship and restrict freedom of movement. The new law, which will replace the state of emergency imposed after the 2015 Paris attacks, was approved by the Senate on its second reading, despite campaigners warning of a threat to civil liberties. […] Under the bill, the authorities will have the power to...

  • Jordan's king endorses Palestinian reconciliation deal

    Associated Press ^ | Oct 22, 2017 1:36 PM EDT
    Jordan’s king on Sunday endorsed a fledgling Palestinian reconciliation agreement that is meant to end a decade-old political and ideological split between rivals Hamas and Fatah. King Abdullah II expressed support for the Egyptian-brokered deal after meeting Sunday with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who heads Fatah. The Islamic militant Hamas seized the Gaza Strip in 2007, leaving Abbas with autonomous enclaves in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. The palace said that the king “affirmed Jordan’s full support for this agreement”, which it said would strengthen Palestinian unity. Jordan, which considers itself a key Mideast mediator, was not directly involved in reconciliation...

    President Donald Trump set the sports world on fire over the weekend, referring to NFL players who kneel in protest of racial inequality during the national anthem as “sons of bitches” who deserve to be fired, rescinding a White House invitation to the NBA champion Golden State Warriors and — as hundreds of mostly athletes publicly protested the president’s comments — praising both the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins and NASCAR owners for respectively accepting his White House invitation and threatening to fire drivers who dared kneel for “The Star-Spangled Banner.” I’ll let you do the math on that equation. For their...

    Convicted terrorist-turned-Women's March organizer Rasmea Odeh has been deported from the United States to Jordan after it was revealed that she lied on her application for a U.S. visa and for U.S. citizenship. Odeh did not state on her application that she was convicted in 1970 for two bombings in Jerusalem that resulted in the deaths of two people, and hence was tried for immigration fraud. After several appeals and a vacated sentence, on March 23, 2017 Odeh was sentenced to be deported and to be stripped of her U.S. citizenship. Her citizenship was formally revoked on August 17. Odeh was...

    {Originally posted to the author’s FirstOne Through website}This year marks 100 years since the Balfour Declaration on November 2, 1917 which endorsed “the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish People.” The declaration became the basis for the League of Nations (precursor to the United Nations) to endorse the Palestine Mandate which clearly articulated the history and rights of Jews to a reconstituted national homeland in the area now commonly thought of as Gaza, Israel, the West Bank and Jordan.Advertisement  Article 25 of the Mandate allowed the administrator (Britain) to change the contours of the reestablished...

    The Kingdom of Jordan is demanding Israel handover the Israeli embassy official who was wounded in Sunday evening’s terror attack in Amman, and has barred his return to Israel. On Sunday, the Israeli embassy in Amman’s deputy security officer was stabbed at his residence in the embassy compound by a Jordanian man who had been brought to move furniture. After he was stabbed, the security officer opened fire, killing the terrorist. A second Jordanian citizen, who was described in various media reports as being either a doctor employed at the embassy or the owner of the residence, was also killed...

    A Jordanian member of parliament has praised soldier Ahmed Daqamseh, who in 1997 shot dead seven Israeli schoolgirls, as a hero, i24news reported Thursday. Dima Tahboub, a spokeswoman for the Islamic Action Front which is the political wing of Jordan’s branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, said Daqamseh was a hero because he was retaliating against Israel and the teenage girls were “enemies.” Tahboub’s comments were made in an interview with British journalist Tim Sebastian, according to i24news. Daqamseh was a soldier in the Jordanian army when he opened fire on a group of students who were visiting the “peace island”...

    I met Mudar Zahran, currently the Secretary General of the Jordan Opposition Coalition (JOC), some six years ago and have kept closely in touch with him over the years.  I watched the JOC being formed and take shape, just as I watched their plan Operation Jordan is Palestine (OJIP) take shape. The goal of the later is: “To establish Jordan as the Palestinian homeland, in accordance with international law, where refugees will be settled within safe and secure borders, allowing Israel to become a fully recognized, sovereign state over all of its soil, including all land west of the Jordan...

    A day before a new ceasefire deal takes effect in southwestern Syria, the concerned areas are relatively calm with the exception of sporadic strikes by the Syrian regime, a monitoring group have said. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Saturday, the Syrian regime shelled two villages in the northern countryside of Daraa, one of three provinces affected by the ceasefire. The Observatory said at least one person was killed and a total of 16 such bombs were dropped in the area, wounding several. The US-Russian-Jordanian brokered deal is to be enforced by midday on Sunday, in the provinces...

    The U.S. and Russia struck a deal for a cease-fire in southwest Syria, according to reports, marking a major breakthrough in the six-year civil war as President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin held their first face-to-face meeting. Details were sketchy but the cease-fire was scheduled to take effect Sunday at noon Damascus time, The Associated Press reported, citing U.S. officials. The deal reflects a new level of involvement by the U.S. in Syria’s civil war. Mr. Trump had previously stepped up U.S. actions with airstrikes against chemical weapon stashes of the Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria. Jordan and Israel...

    Who really gave Trump the leaked intelligence? Intelligence about ISIS allegedly leaked by US President Donald Trump to Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during an Oval Office meeting last Wednesday was sourced by Jordanian spies, not Israelis, Al Jazeera reported on Thursday morning. According to the report, “veteran Jordanian intelligence officials” claimed the numerous media reports that the information Trump disclosed to the Russians originally came from Israel are false. Speaking to Al Jazeera anonymously, the Jordanian officials said they “don’t believe Israel has any high level spies” inside ISIS. “Unlike Jordan, [when it comes to...

    Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel has warned that Berlin may pull its troops from Turkey following a recent deterioration in relations. The chancellor’s latest warning comes after Turkey denied visas to German lawmakers who wanted to visit troops at the Incirlik air base, located near Adana in south Turkey. “We will continue to talk with Turkey, but in parallel we will have to explore other ways of fulfilling our mandate,” Merkel said at a press conference on Monday. “That means looking at alternatives to İncirlik, and one alternative among others is Jordan,” she said. …
