    Lawmakers in France's lower house of parliament on Tuesday night narrowly voted to pass a highly controversial proposal to amend the constitution to strip people convicted of terrorist offenses of their French nationality, AFP reported. The measure, passed by 162 votes to 148 with 22 abstentions, followed weeks of debate after it was proposed as part of a set of measures by President Francois Hollande in the wake of the jihadist attacks in Paris in November that killed 130 people. The nationality measure has strong public support, but has deeply divided Hollande's ruling Socialist Party. ...

    Putin’s war cost Russia its centuries-long shared identity with its neighbour. Now, Kyiv risks betraying the spirit of the Maidan revolution. When the Russian inquest finally comes, the answer will be clear. It was President Vladimir Putin who lost Ukraine – after a millennium of shared east Slav identity. When the Ukrainian inquest into who lost the ­Euromaidan’s “Revolution of Dignity” finally comes, the answer, on the present evidence, will also be clear. It was an elite core of politicians and oligarchs who first worked a miracle in fighting Russia’s military Goliath to a stalemate – only to revert to...

    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...

    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.

    Israelis who posted Facebook statuses in Tel Aviv during the weekend were surprised to find that according to Facebook, they were not in Tel Aviv - but rather in "Al Mas'Udiya." The name refers to a town abandoned by Arab residents during the 1948 War of Independence, when the surrounding Arab nations tried and failed to destroy the nascent modern Jewish state. The location of the village, which has not existed for around 68 years, currently would be between the streets of Ibn Gabirol and Arlozorov in Tel Aviv, right near Hameah Tower.

    Israel's intelligence community has found that the Hamas terrorist organization and Islamic State (ISIS) intensified their mutual cooperation in the year 2015 - so reports Middle East Newsline (MENL). According to the Israeli intelligence sources, the two terrorist movements share intelligence, weapons shipments, logistics and medical services. For instance, ISIS frequently works with Bedouin smugglers to facilitate shipments of missiles and weapons to the Hamas-ruled Gaza via Egypt's Sinai Desert. ISIS then takes 10-20% of the weapons ordered by Hamas. However, when the Egyptian offensive against the smuggling tunnel network hampers their joint efforts, ISIS sends raw materials, enabling Hamas...

The world came dangerously close to being slaughtered and enslaved by Nazi Germany.

By the time Russia began constructing an air base at Latakia, the city - which is immensely important both from a strategic and psychological perspective - was controlled by a hodgepodge of rebels and militants including al-Qaeda, the Free Syrian Army, and ISIS. As we noted four months ago, if Russia and Hezbollah manage to recapture the city, it would effectively restore the Assad government in Syria even if the east of the country is still controlled by Islamic State. In many ways,...

The spending would increase to $3.4 billion under the new plan, which will be introduced next week as part of Mr. Obama's final budget. Having been unable to dislodge Russian President Vladimir Putin's proxy forces from Ukraine through diplomacy, Mr. Obama now wants to spend the extra money on "continuous U.S. armored brigade rotations" through stations in Central and Eastern Europe, beefed-up...

In an 18-month long Ipsos survey on “living together”, published in Le Journal de Dimanche, researchers interviewed French people from a variety of backgrounds on their views on race and religion. In results that will likely cause further concern to France’s embattled Jewish community, investigators found that nearly one in five Muslims believe there are “too many Jews” living in the country, while the wider population also seems to be suspicious.

The latest atrocity from the jihadi group allied to the Islamic State took place in the village of Dalori, some three miles from Maiduguri, Nigeria. Vice Chairman of a civilian joint task force in Dalori, Modu Kaka, said that at least 100 dead bodies were taken away but that hundreds are still missing.

Maher, a religious critic, told his fellow liberals he wishes they would have the same "intolerance" for Muslim-related terror around the world that they do for Christians and Christian fundamentalists at home. Maher brought up the decision by the Italians to cover up nude statues during a state visit by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. "This is the horribleness of what's going...

The Government plans to extend the scheme to children aged under 12 years later this year and to all children shortly after. Limerick GP Charlie Gavin said he signed the contract out of fear.

    Israel is still responding angrily to France's proposal yesterday to call an international peace conference with Israel and the Palestinians - and to unilaterally recognize the state of "Palestine," should the conference fail to bring peace.

Another official explained that "The French proposal effectively gives the Palestinians an excuse to blow up the talks and still get all they want without negotiating at all." He added: "This is a mistaken approach. Why should the Palestinians...
