    The Israeli press is reporting that “The United States was behind the summoning of Israeli ambassadors by several European nations, Israeli sources with close ties to US administration officials said Monday. ‘The European move is essentially an American move,’ one official said. ‘The Brits asked the Americans how to act.’” The same story quotes an Israeli official saying “The Europeans got the green light to respond with extreme measures . . .” No proof is offered and proof in these circumstances will be hard to produce. But the story has a great deal of logic behind it. The Obama administration...

    FAYETTE COUNTY W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A gunman who shot five people Tuesday night and killed a West Virginia State trooper had a troubling criminal history of violent behavior.

When responding officers arrived, police say he pointed his gun at them "in attempt to get law enforcement to kill him." He didn't pull the trigger then, but Tuesday night he did -- after state police...
