    A Toronto police officer who refused to shoot the man suspected of plowing a van into crowds of pedestrians on Monday, killing 10 people, was praised for restraint in the face of a suspect who claimed to have a gun. Video footage showed the police officer staring down the suspect at gunpoint in the middle of a street, while the man pointed what appeared to be a gun and shouted "Kill me." The video showed the suspect repeatedly pulling an object from his side and aiming at police. The arrest was praised as a welcome example of police restraint in...

    UPDATE: 9 dead in Toronto, authorities confirm it was a terrorist attack. Five people were killed earlier on Monday in Toronto after they were intentionally hit by a white van in what seems to be a “standard” (part and parcel of living in a big city, to quote from the classics) terrorist attack. The van started mowing pedestrians at the intersection of Yonge Street and Finch, a very busy area of Toronto, in the early afternoon. The driver was arrested at the scene after a short confrontation with the police and he’s currently in custody. Early police reports put the...

    Jewish Democratic lawmakers criticize Netanyahu over nixing of deal with UN to avoid mass deportations of African infiltrators from Israel. “We were dismayed to hear that the agreement had been suspended, then canceled, leaving the Sudanese and Eritrean asylum seekers in limbo, with no clear next step,” said the letter sent Monday and initiated by four of the top Jewish lawmakers. Netanyahu said he would revert to his earlier plan to send the approximately 38,000 Sudanese and Eritrean / Ethiopian infiltrators to an unnamed African country, believed to be Uganda.

    Four years ago, 32-year-old Sam Sally left her hometown in Indiana for a vacation in Turkey. The family went from a mundane life of sports cars and a delivery business to joining Islamic State fighters and seeing their son become the face of ISIS propaganda against America. During the trip, Sally claims her husband, Moussa, duped her and her children -- Matthew, 10; Sarah, 5; and her two youngest who were born in the so-called ISIS caliphate -- into joining Islamic State militants in Syria. Sally said, "All I saw was a bunch of drug-using thugs that came from their...

And in Gaza the assault on the Israeli border continues, with teenagers being sacrificed to the battle.

Minister of Public Safety Ralph Goodale said it was too soon to say whether the crash was a case of international terrorism. He said Canada has not changed its terrorism alert level and he has no information that would suggest a need to do so.

One obvious problem is Facebook’s contribution to the dissemination of fake news, which Brown is now fighting. How? Let the Paper of Record tell you all about it. “Ms. Brown,” wrote Bowles, “wants to use Facebook’s existing Watch product — a service introduced in 2017 as a premium product with more curation that has nonetheless been flooded with far-right conspiracy programming...
