  • Waffle House waitress shot, killed after telling customer not to smoke

    11/27/2015 2:11:27 PM PST · by BBell · 84 replies
    BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - A woman working the overnight shift at a Biloxi Waffle House was shot and killed early Friday morning, and police say it was all over a cigarette. Investigators say an argument erupted when a waitress told a customer he couldn't smoke inside the restaurant. Johnny Mount, 45, refused to put out his cigarette, pulled out a handgun he had concealed under his shirt, and shot the woman once in the head. Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove said the 52-year-old woman was taken to Merit Health Biloxi where she later died from her injuries. Mount was arrested...

    IDF units on Mount Hermon, which borders Syria, are preparing to encounter Iranian-backed terror attacks, a senior military source told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday. According to the source, units operating under the command of the Mount Hermon territorial Brigade have been training to respond to a "combined terror attack" that could involve border bombs, rockets, an attempted kidnapping of soldiers, and possible anti-tank missile fire. "There is someone who gets up every morning and asks, how can I carry out an attack on Israel? Most of the time, they run into great difficulties," the source said. He stressed that...

    Days after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reassured the world that Israel was maintaining the status quo regarding exclusive Muslim prayer rights at the Temple Mount, Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely clarified comments she made about the site, saying they reflected her own personal position and not that of the government. On Monday morning, the Likud lawmaker said in an interview on the Knesset Channel that her "dream is to see the Israel flag flying over the Temple Mount. This is the holiest place for the Jewish people." Later in the day she released a statement clarifying her position. "My personal...

    “And the altar of burnt-offering he set at the door of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, and offered upon it the burnt-offering and the meal-offering; as the LORD commanded Moses.” (Exodus 40:29) The Temple Institute in Jerusalem has announced that it has finished building an altar suitable for the Temple service. The altar, which took several years to build, can be operational at little more than a moment’s notice, reported Matzav Haruach magazine. The Temple Institute is committed to preparing all the necessary clothing and tools for the rebuilt Holy Temple in Jerusalem. In addition, the institute operates...
  • PLO Urges Journalists: Don't Use the Term 'Temple Mount'

    PA chief Mahmoud Abbas's Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) has issued special instructions to members of the international media, urging them to stop using the term "Temple Mount," and to instead refer to the holy site as "the Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound" or "Haram al-Sharif/Noble Sanctuary." In a blatant attempt to impose a discourse erasing any reference to the Jewish character of the site, the PLO "media advisory" claims that the "Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound, sometimes referred to as the Noble Sanctuary (“Haram al-Sharif” in Arabic), is the compound that contains Al Aqsa building itself, ablution fountains, open spaces for prayer, monuments and...
  • Nevada to get Mount Reagan?

    The Hill ^ | 2/07/14 | Pete Kasperowicz
    Rep. Joe Heck (R-Nev.) on Thursday introduced legislation naming a 4,000-foot peak in his home state "Mount Reagan" after former President Reagan. Heck's bill was introduced on Reagan's birthday, and supports an effort by the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project (RRLP) to name the peak after the former president. "He left America stronger, freer, and safer than the day he became President," Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform and chairman of the RRLP, said last year. "Adding his name to the short list of great American presidents who have mountains named after them is an honor richly deserved." Heck's...

  • Mount Fuji under more pressure than last eruption

    TOKYO: Pressure in the magma chamber of Japan's Mount Fuji is now higher than it was the last time the volcano erupted more than 300 years ago, scientists say. Tectonic shifts triggered by last year's huge 9.0 magnitude undersea quake have left the chamber under 16 times the minimum pressure at which an eruption can occur, researchers said. Researchers at the National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention studied the tectonic movements caused by the tsunami-triggering quake on March 11, 2011 and a magnitude 6.4 quake that rocked central Japan four days later, Kyodo News reported. Mount Fuji...

    Mount Washington to open in July for first time everBy Lindsay Chung - Comox Valley Record Updated: June 21, 2011 2:07 PM Thousands of people skied and snowboarded this weekend at Mount Washington — and this wasn't even their last chance. Mount Washington Alpine Resort opened to skiers and boarders in June for the second straight year this Father's Day weekend, and with so much snow still on the hill, the mountain will be opening for skiing and boarding July 1, 2 and 3 — the same time as it opens for summer operations with its Mile High Chairlift rides....

    Hundreds of religious Jews from all streams were able to happily commemorate the 44th anniversary of the first-ever entry of Israeli soldiers onto the TempleMount. For the first time in the history of Israeli restrictions on Jewish entry to the Temple Mount, the recitation of the Priestly Blessing was permitted there. It happened on Wednesday, Jerusalem Reunification Day, when hundreds of visitors – all of whom immersed in a mikveh (ritual bath) prior to coming and took other precautions required by Jewish Law – were allowed to enter the Temple Mount in groups of 30-40. Among them were several Cohanim...

    The American Conservative ^ | 16 Feb 2010 | Daniel Larison
    What is there to say about this statement, which is being called a new conservative “manifesto”? Someone might object that Russell Kirk said that conservatives do not have manifestoes, but that would be entirely too quaint and old-fashioned. What is one to make of the organizers’ selection of the site of George Washington’s home for a statement that refers to a foreign policy of “advancing freedom and opposing tyranny in the world”? I would say that it is in extremely poor taste, but then this statement is not directed at people like me. My admiration for Washington comes partly from...

    There have been demands and calls and rulings and all sorts of actions all indicating that the world will expect Israel to fully retreat behind the pre 67 borders, also known as the Green Line. Perhaps it would be advantageous to inspect the history behind the demarcation of the Green Line and establish what validity it holds as an actual recognized border. Sit back and relax, this will take a while to explain and reveal. I will try to be as brief as I am able. The Balfour Declaration was made in November 1917 by the British Government that set...

    (IsraelNN.com) The Middle East peace plan that United States President Barack Obama will unveil soon involves the creation of a Palestinian Authority state by 2011 and the transfer of Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem [presumably including the Temple Mount – ed.] to Arab-Muslim sovereignty, Saudi newspaper Al-Ukaz has learned. According to the report published Sunday in Al-Ukaz, the Obama plan also includes the following elements: Some parts of eastern Jerusalem [presumably Neveh Yaakov, Pisgat Ze'ev and the like - ed.] would be transferred to Israeli control.

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 8, 2007 – Coalition and Iraqi security forces captured or killed 18 senior al Qaeda members in July, a Multinational Force Iraq spokesman said today. Of the 18, six were terrorist unit commanders known as “senior emirs,” and seven were either foreign fighters or weapons distributors. Troops detained or killed three cell leaders and two members who manned an al Qaeda media operation, Army Brig. Gen. Kevin Bergner told online journalists and “bloggers” during a conference call. “There has been some tactical momentum achieved in July and into the first week now of August,” he said. “And...

    WND ^ | August 29, 2006
    An individual from San Diego who is "discomfited" over a veterans' memorial has prompted the American Civil Liberties Union to renew its attack on the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial. The Thomas More Law Center said yesterday it is preparing to defend the cross memorial from a new attack by the ACLU, this time in U.S. District Court in California. A 17-year-long battle apparently reached a conclusion earlier this month when Congress approved and President Bush signed legislation giving ownership and control of the memorial to the federal government. That essentially should have ended a state case over the monument that...

    A decision by Israel's highest court has triggered fears of a "third intifada." On Tuesday, the Israel Supreme Court upheld a request by far-right Jewish activists that they be allowed on Thursday to enter Islam's third holiest shrine, the Al-Aqsa mosque compound, which is also revered by Jews as the Temple Mount. The decision to allow the controversial visit to the east Jerusalem mosque compound was taken despite police warnings that it could spark riots in Israel and the occupied territories. The small Temple Mount Faithul group requested to visit the compound, where according to Jewish tradition Herod's Temple stood,...
