    The United States said Thursday it was "appalled" by Syrian government air strikes Thursday that killed more than 30 people - including children - in a key rebel bastion east of the capital of Damascus. The raids took place in Deir Al-Assafir, a town in the opposition stronghold of Eastern Ghouta, one of the areas in Syria where a fragile ceasefire brokered by the US and Russia has been in place since February 27. "The United States is appalled by aerial strikes March 31, reportedly by the Assad regime, on a school and hospital in the Damascus suburb of Deir...

    British Prime Minister David Cameron used particularly harsh language against Israel's presence in eastern Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria which were liberated during the 1967 Six Day War. Speaking at Parliament, Cameron branded Israel’s construction of new communities in these areas as “genuinely shocking”, The Independent reported. The Prime Minister said that though he was a strong supporter of Israel, he had been taken aback by what had seen first hands on visits to Jerusalem. “I am well-known as being a strong friend of Israel but I have to say the first time I visited Jerusalem and had a proper tour...

    Donald Trump continues to court Second Amendment supporters in the wake of last week’s deadly shooting in Oregon, suggesting the teachers at Umpqua Community College should have been armed — just like he is. “Let me tell you, if you had a couple teachers with guns in that room, you would have been a hell of a lot better off,” Trump said at a rally in Franklin, Tenn., on Saturday. “This is about self-defense, plain and simple.” “In fact, I have a license to carry in New York — can you believe that? Nobody knows that,” Trump continued. “Somebody attacks...

    Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein on Monday evening toured southern Tel Aviv’s neighborhoods, which have been literally taken over by illegal infiltrators from Africa, and was shocked by what he saw and heard. Weinstein was accompanied by the Deputy Attorney General, Raz Nizri, and Dr. Roy Schondorf, who heads a special task force charged with handling international legal proceedings against Israelis. Residents of southern Tel Aviv have been suffering from endless harassment, fear and violence perpetrated by the many illegal Eritrean and Sudanese infiltrators who enter Israel to find employment and come to live in their working class neighborhood. The residents,...

    Knesset Speaker MK Yuli Edelstein wrote a letter of protest Sunday to his British counterpart, MP John Bercow, after a hidden camera video showed a British MP making an offensive anti-Semitic remark regarding a female IDF soldier he encountered on a visit to Israel. The MP resigned last week. "I was shocked to hear about the crude antisemitic words used by a Member of Parliament, Patrick Mercer, regarding an event during his recent trip to Israel,” wrote Edelstein. “This was a totally unacceptable comment, certainly as made by a public figure.” "This comment is merely one of a number of...

  • Singer Who Everyone Thought Was a Lesbian Spews Anti-Gay Hate at Concert

    There’s never a good time or place to go on an anti-gay tirade, but onstage at a club in San Francisco owned by a gay man, in front of many gay fans, is probably near the bottom of the list. Michelle Shocked, a singer-songwriter whose sexuality was once fairly ambiguous, stunned fans Sunday night at Yoshi’s Jazz Club with a homophobic rant, according to USA Today. The 51-year-old singer reportedly said that if California’s Proposition 8, which effectively bans gay marriage, is overturned, “it will be the downfall of civilization, and Jesus will come back.” As her rant went on,...

    Sometimes, watching a Democrat learn something is wonderful, like seeing the family dog finally sit and stay at your command. With President Obama back in office and his life-saving “fiscal cliff” bill jammed through Congress, the new year has brought a surprising turn of events for his sycophantic supporters. “What happened that my Social Security withholding’s in my paycheck just went up?” a poster wrote on the liberal site DemocraticUnderground.com. “My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don’t feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna’ hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will...

    In a nutshell — Come on, you're black! You are supposed to vote for the black guy." Rick Sanchez of CNN's League of First Time Voters expresses shock that three black men interviewed will not be voting for, Barack Obama. Sanchez goes as far as asking the men if they are "sellouts". He also questions one of the men as to whether "there is any source of pride" that would cause them to vote for Obama. Do you think Sanchez would ever ask a white person if there was "any source of pride" that would make them want to vote...

    As the nation's most populous metro area feels Wall Street's pain, the fourth-largest -- Washington -- is barely sensing the recession. In fact, Moody's Economy.com estimates that metro Washington's economy will actually grow 2.5% from mid-2008 through mid-2010. New York's economy is expected to shrink 4.2%. It wouldn't be the first time that Washington benefited from a national crisis. Back in 1930 the District of Columbia was a quiet Southern town, scoffed at by New York sophisticates. But as the federal government ramped up to fight first the Great Depression and then World War II, its population grew 65% in...
