The decision to call off the investigation was made in a joint statement issued by the Czech Police Spokeswoman, Andrea Zoulova, and the state attorney Jindra Janacova. According to the statement, the explosion in the Palestinian embassy at the beginning of January...

    Israel and Gaza enter the fifth day of what the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) are calling ‘Operation Pillar of Cloud.' As the war wages on it, is it time Israel invaded Gaza, with the goal to kill the terrorist group threatening peace for both Israel and Palestine? Israel engaging in a loaded conflict with Gaza isn’t an unfamiliar enmity, but it has become an excessive, futile matter. Hamas is mad that Israel is a living, breathing state, and Israel wants the two to live together in a permanent, peaceful time. Israel isn’t going anywhere and Hamas has yet to cease...

And just as the mullahs are getting closer and closer to having a nuke of their own to play with.

Mohammed el-Bashiti and five others had nearly finished expanding the tunnel from Gaza into Egypt when the ceiling gave way, said the official, who spoke on customary condition of anonymity. The nearly 2,000-foot-long tunnel, located about 30 feet below ground, was an old one that the smugglers were attempting to renovate. El-Bashiti precipitated the collapse of the tunnel's sandy ceiling when he pushed a pole through to the surface in an effort to show his...

Islamic Jihad claimed Israeli warplanes struck the home of Ayman Atallah Fayed. Israel denied it had launched any airstrike in the Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza where Fayed lived....

    The 911 call Wednesday morning started simply enough. The caller, a 52-year-old employee of Alamo Concrete, gave the address of the company east of Manor. Gasping, he struggled to give the phone number. Then, he blurted out what was wrong: "I have my arm cut off, ma'am. I have my arm cut off." The man's arm was amputated at the elbow after it became stuck in a conveyor belt of a machine at Alamo Concrete, said Warren Hassinger, spokesman for Austin/Travis County Emergency Medical Services. Officials released a recording of the 911 call later Wednesday. The man, whose name was...

The Hamas-controlled Gaza Interior Ministry released a statement saying the car was hit by an Israeli naval vessel offshore, killing three marine police officers. But later, the Hamas government backed away, releasing a statement saying, "Investigations are still under...
