    A Jewish man who came to see a doctor at a health clinic in an Arab town last week was viciously attacked by a local Arab for no apparent reason. Security camera footage from the incident, at a health clinic in the northern village of Ibillin, shows the Jew sitting in the waiting room, minding his own business and not even looking at the Arab man. The Arab man gets up, walks toward the Jew and punches him hard in the side of the head. The Jew falls writhing to the floor. Men who were present in the clinic escort...

    A New Lenox man found guilty of throwing punches that left his victim paralyzed, blind and unable to speak was sentenced Tuesday to 30 months of probation and ordered to turn over the $20,000 his family put up for his bond to the victim's mother. Joseph Messina, 25, faced up to 10 years in prison, but Will County Judge Sarah Jones said prosecutors failed to provide enough evidence to overcome the presumption of probation. Family members of Eric Bartels, the man left paralyzed by the punches, gasped when Jones said she was sentencing Messina to probation. "I'm very disappointed with...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans controlling the House are opting for the politically safe route as they follow up their tightfisted, tea party-driven budget with less controversial steps to cut spending. Instead of big reductions in Medicaid and Medicare, top GOP lawmakers are sticking mostly with familiar proposals like cutting money for President Barack Obama's health care overhaul and federal employee pensions while reaching out to Democrats to help pass annual spending bills. At issue is follow-up legislation to the sweeping budget document that passed the House last month. Under Congress' arcane budget process, it's simply a nonbinding blueprint that sets...

    U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, in China on a five-day charm mission, has worked hard with his hosts to inject a little amity into the sometimes fractious relationship, pulling punches but not his punch lines. On Thursday, China's vice president and likely leader-in-waiting, Xi Jinping, met Biden at the Great Hall of the People. "Good to see you again," Xi said. "I know you are very busy with national affairs at home." "You ARE national affairs," Biden told his counterpart from the United States' largest creditor. After on a stroll up the red carpet, Biden found a familiar face during...

    Claiming that her religious rights had been violated, a Muslim woman punched a man in the face after he had photographed her on a busy Toronto intersection.

This is how he explained it in a Toronto Sun column: Suddenly, a woman wearing a hijab ran toward me. She was part of a group that included two...
