    Times of Israel ^ | February 4, 2016, 5:47 pm | Raphael Ahren
    Jerusalem is bracing for a series of Palestinian statehood initiatives in various international forums, including resolutions at the United Nations Security Council, Israel's ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said Thursday. "The Palestinians are increasing their involvement and activity in the international arena in a bid to internationalize the conflict," he told The Times of Israel. There are several initiatives calling for the creation of a Palestinian state circulating among UN diplomats, and while they recently received less exposure due to the world's focus on fighting the Islamic State terror group, these resolutions are anything but forgotten, he indicated. ...

    A Christian pastor has started offering the UK's first ever baptism service for the transgendered, allowing the afflicted to be welcomed into God's family according to their new, chosen gender identity. The New Chapel (Unitarian and Free Christian) in Greater Manchester unanimously passed the new proposal at its general meeting last week, paving the way for the ceremonies to go ahead in the near future. 'Worship leader' Jean Clements said she came up with the idea after meeting and marrying a gay couple with a small child – a biological boy which they had branded as transgendered and decided was...

    Armin Rosen Febuary 5, 2016Russia's submarine fleet is more active than it's been in decades in a strategically vital body of water — and US military planners can't seem to figure out why. US Navy Vice Admiral Clive Johnstone, also head of NATO's maritime command, told IHS Jane's that the US has seen "more activity from Russian submarines than we've seen since the days of the Cold War" in the North Atlantic. While Johnstone didn't specify which parts of the North Atlantic have seen this uptick, nearly the entirety of the area between North America, the Western European coastline, and...

    THE relatives of slain British soldiers have accused the Department of Veterans' Affairs of banning them from attending centenary commemorations for a catastrophic WWI battle that killed thousands of Australian soldiers. The Battle of Fromelles is among Australia's bloodiest military encounters and the brutal loss has long been blamed on a disastrous incompetence of British military strategy. A special service to mark the battle's 100th anniversary is to take place on July 19 this year at the Pheasant Wood military cemetery in Fromelles, northern France. The slaughter is viewed by historians as the darkest 24 hours in the Australia's history...

    The most trusted and powerful broadcasting organization in this world is the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). In the 1930s, it had a shameful history with Winston Churchill. Mr. Churchill was doing everything possible to warn and SAVE his country and the world from Adolf Hitler. Britain almost lost World War II. The world came dangerously close to being slaughtered and enslaved by Nazi Germany. A Churchill biographer, Henry Pelling, wrote that the BBC had kept him off the air on controversial questions in the 1930s. Those controversial questions included his strongest warnings about the dangers of Nazi Germany! The BBC...

The woman, says she was smuggled into court via a back door 'as if she was the criminal'. Muhyadeen Osman, Bilal Ahmed and Mowled Yussuf, all 20, gang raped the girl at the Victoria Park Hotel in Manchester, having spent the night before there for Eid.

    In 2014, the British government reported 12 late-term unborn babies were aborted simply because they had Down syndrome. This disturbing statistic is prompting one mother of a boy with the condition to put a stop to the deadly, discriminatory practice. Sarah Roberts from Guildford, England, is a mother of three who is trying to convince others that the lives of those with Down syndrome have value. Roberts’ son Oscar has the genetic disorder. She tells Eagle radio: “A lot of the children we hang around with are typical children. They don’t necessarily notice any differences yet but I’m sure as...

    Russia seemingly has ignored Secretary of State John Kerry’s appeals to stop bombing civilians and allow critical humanitarian aid to starving Syrians – and is instead escalating its military involvement, deploying four of its most capable fighter jets to Syria, two defense officials confirmed to Fox News. The decision to send the Su-35S jets poses yet another hurdle for Kerry’s efforts to proceed with peace talks. The Su-35S is Russia’s most advanced warplane, capable of air-to-air and air-to-ground missions, one official familiar with the jet said. Already, continued Russian airstrikes against Syrian opposition fighters, some backed by the CIA, were...

    Back in October, we previewed the “promised” battle for Aleppo, Syria’s largest city prior to the war. 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,...

    Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron promised back in 2010 to bring net migration down to 100,000 people a year. Six years later, it's more than three times that number. That's one reason the government's Home Office decided that non-Europeans on skilled worker visas -- known as Tier 2 visas -- are not welcome to stay unless they are making at least 35,000 British pounds (about $50,000 a year). The message is aimed at slashing migration to Britain and goes into effect in April. But critics call the new rule discriminatory and say it will strip Britain of lower-paid artists, health...

    Is the power of the White House enough to get Pink Floyd back together for one more concert? The obvious answer to that question is "almost definitely not," but that isn't going to stop Republican presidential hopeful John Kasich from doing his level best to reunite the dormant group if he ends up winning the 2016 election.

Yes -- gender or genders. Among the options were "tri-gender" (having exactly three genders,) "gender fluid" (having your gender change over time,) "demi-boy/demi-girl" (someone who is only partially male/female,) and "all genders" (which would be an infinite number because gender is obviously a spectrum.)

    Leadership: President Obama staged a political show for a Jewish audience Wednesday, loudly warning of the new atmosphere of anti-Semitism in Europe and the U.S. It's a hollow statement, given his weak record on a rapidly metastasizing problem. "Here, tonight, we must confront the reality that around the world, anti-Semitism is on the rise. We cannot deny it," the president told his listeners at the Israeli embassy on Wednesday night. Citing the flight of Jews from Western Europe, as well attacks on Jews in India and Kansas, he got his lines right in concluding, "When we see that, we must...

    Nearly 20 per cent of Muslims living in France think there are too many Jews in the country, a survey by the French Judaism Foundation has discovered. 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 Jewish...

    Like most gay and equality campaigners, I initially condemned the Christian-run Ashers Bakery in Belfast over its refusal to produce a cake with a pro-gay marriage slogan for a gay customer, Gareth Lee. I supported his legal claim against Ashers and the subsequent verdict -- the bakery was found guilty of discrimination last year. Now, two days before the case goes to appeal, I have changed my mind. Much as I wish to defend the gay community, I also want to defend freedom of conscience, expression and religion. The saga began in 2014 when the bakery said it was not...

He claimed "good progress" had been made over the last two days while admitting there were "still outstanding issues".

During an interview about the migrant crisis facing Europe, which could see more than a million people try to cross its borders this year, Mr McDonnell said the movement of people around the globe would render border controls 'irrelevant'. The shadow chancellor, a crucial close ally of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, said conflict, poverty and climate change would drive mass migration of people around the world. He told the BBC Sunday Politics: 'The movement of peoples across the globe will mean that borders...

One of the world’s largest hip replacement firms, DePuy, has admitted "an error in the measuring techniques" when making controversial metal-on-metal implants. Company bosses are now under intense pressure from victims of the hip scandal to answer in full questions on how long the firm was aware of the problem, amid claims that potentially faulty components were sold for years. This newspaper has previously disclosed how metal-on-metal hips have far higher wear rates than other implants, which...

The German Economic Institute, which is based in Cologne, put together a projection for feeding, housing and educating the children of one million-plus migrants who have entered the country. Angela Merkel's government is reported to already be dreaming up new ways of taxing people - in what is already one of the most heavily taxed countries in the world - to help foot the bill.

    If Donald Trump were to win in November, he would be the first man to take the White House without having previously held public office or served at a high level in the military. Because his election would be without precedent, it's difficult to predict what a Trump administration would look like. He has offered some hints, however. He's suggested that Congressman Trey Gowdy, head of the committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi consulate attack, could be his attorney general. (That was before Mr Gowdy endorsed Florida Senator Marco Rubio, however.) He's mentioned that 2012 Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin would...

In its current state, professional football is immoral and we as a society should end its existence. I imagine some fans of American football felt their hackles rise upon reading that. “Immoral” is a strong word, impossible to type from anywhere other than the saddle of a very tall horse, which isn’t the most comfortable seat for me. I ate foie gras with Christmas dinner last week and enjoyed it immensely. I know that its production involves...

    The European Commission has declared the Cologne sex attacks on New Year's Eve have nothing to do with Europe's ongoing migrant crisis, describing such links as "false associations". Internal minutes of a European Commission meeting held on January 13th illustrate the complacent attitude of senior European Union (EU) leaders to the Cologne sex attacks. They appear more concerned with limiting damage to the wider European project than facing problems caused by their own migration policies.

    Angela Merkel is a 'narcissist' whose refusal to curb immigration may be a sign of a 'mental breakdown, according to a celebrated German psychiatrist. The German Chancellor has been heavily criticized over her 'open border' policy, which resulted in 1.1million refugees and migrants entering Germany last year. German psychiatrist Hans-Joachim Maaz said in an analysis that Mrs Merkel is so determined not to admit that she was wrong about her migration policy that she has 'lost touch with reality'.

    In another explosive story proving the German government’s war against her own people, 17-year veteran officer Sven Kleuckling has been suspended without pay and will most likely be fired and face charges for exposing on Facebook a secret directive given to German police departments nationwide- that refugees are not to be prosecuted for any crime. Naming the local police commanders (Stahlknect, Haseoff, Bullerjahn) in his area, the German government has been scrambling to deny the claims made by Officer Kleuckling. Instead, the police is blaming his statements on “right-wing extremism.” From the Middeldeutsch Zeitung (with thanks to Google Translate): A...

    We need an estimated $1tn per year to stay below a global temperature rise of 2C. Creating new money might be the only way to meet this financial challenge. The international community has agreed on an ambitious agenda to curb climate change. Some 195 countries have decided to try and cut greenhouse gas emissions to a level that will limit the rise in average global temperatures to well below 2C. The question we now face is: how are we going to finance the changes needed to reach this goal? Quantitative easing - creating new money - might just be the...

    Six of the Royal Navy's most modern warships - worth £1billion each - all need new engines because they keep breaking down, it was revealed today. The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has confirmed that its Type 45 destroyers need holes cut in their sides during major refits. The ships, which have two engines already and are all less than ten years old, will need another engine to increase power amid concerns over their reliability. Troubled waters: HMS Daring, the first of six destroyers ordered by the Royal Navy, lost power in the Atlantic on her first voyage to the US...
