    U.S. evangelical pastor Saeed Abedini is among the four Americans Iran were released on Saturday, according to reports. Abedini, 35, of Boise, Idaho; is a convert from Islam to Christianity and pastor who had been imprisoned since July 2012 for organizing home churches. His case was the most high-profile religious persecution for Christians in recent years, regularly mentioned by evangelical pastors in pulpits across the country. His case put a face on the issue of religious persecution, especially in the Middle East, for Christians across the globe. For more than three years, evangelical activists have pressed President Obama for his...

    Hundreds of masked and armed terrorists from Hamas's Al-Qassam Brigades "military wing" took part in a terrorist funeral attended by thousands in Jerusalem earlier this week, in an alarming show of force. The multitude of terrorists fired in the air with automatic assault rifles, and waved knives and machetes in a spectacle common in Gaza, but as rare as it is shocking in the capital. Video from the incident - which took place in the northeastern Shuafat neighborhood just roughly 100 meters from the French Hill neighborhood and near Hebrew University - was exposed by Channel 10 on Thursday night,...

    Yesterday in Iran, Iranian intelligence officers summoned Pastor Saeed for an intense round of interrogation. Pastor Saeed reported to his family that the interrogators were abusive both verbally and physically. During the course of interrogation, the officers repeatedly used a taser gun on Pastor Saeed. This new assault is concerning as Pastor Saeed is still being denied needed medical care for injuries sustained as a result of beatings in the past.

His Christian faith. Inexcusably, he remains in prison even after the Obama administration made a deal with his captors. According to this deal, Iran keeps enriching uranium, Iran keeps its centrifuges (key equipment for building nuclear weapons), Iran gets billions in sanctions relief, and Iran gets humanitarian transactions from the United States.

It also marks a big boost to New Delhi's efforts to expose Pakistan's propaganda to project Lashkar as a group focused on J&K. Details of the "guilty" plea made by Headley validate India's claims about the Lashkar leadership masterminding 26/11, and suggest that the American...

This reticence in naming the focus of so significant a terrorism inquiry is a symptom of the larger problems of Islam in Britain, and of "Euro-Islam" more generally.

    Comical brother On the mike ... Comical Ali spouts more outrageous Baghdad baloney IRAQ?S barmy information minister Comical Ali is launching an assault on the charts ? with a dance track. The crackpot?s ridiculous rants about the Gulf war ? such as ?There is no presence of American infidels in Baghdad? when US troops were easily seen just a few hundred yards away ? are to be featured on a new record. Producers say it will sound like PAUL HARDCASTLE?s Eighties hit 19 and be a sure-fire club hit. One of the record?s backers, Les Molloy, told me: ?We are...

    DUBAI (Reuters) - An Arab television network said on Tuesday it wants to give a job to former Iraqi information minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf, whose colorful daily briefings during the U.S.-led invasion won him a cult following.

Hadethi said he did not know the former minister's whereabouts and asked him to contact Arabiya to take up his job. "We want to benefit from the...

    Well, now that the fat lady did her thing in Iraq, a bit of humor at the expense of Mohammad Said al-Sahaf, (former) Iraqi Information Minister. I found this webpage (click here) where, inspired by his version of events during the war, some talented people photoshopped him into other "news" scenarios. Some of the humor is obscure (a lot of video game references) but enough are downright hilarious that I'm just posing the whole link. There's 17 pages total, so enjoy!

She said the prisoners were being unlawfully detained and there was growing evidence that they ...

    10/31/00 3:45 p.m. No Easy Ride for Hillary! Her reluctance to speak candidly is her biggest obstacle. By Deroy Murdock, a columnist with the Scripps Howard News Service As New Yorkers prepare to elect a new U.S. senator on November 7, Hillary Rodham Clinton remains hounded by twin suspicions about her honesty and commitment to Israel. Her plunging support among Jewish voters in a recent survey suggests that these nagging questions may be causing grave damage to her Senate candidacy. Mrs. Clinton fueled these lingering doubts in November 1999 when she kissed Yasser Arafat's wife, Suha, immediately after Mrs. Arafat ...

A heavily guarded American FBI agent, meanwhile, told a Pakistani court how he traced e-mails to the Muslim militants suspected...
