    The Saudi multi-millionaire media tycoon, prince Talal Bin Waleed, has urged all Arab nations to give up their acrimonious stance toward the Jewish nation and instead continue to strive for a more peaceful, prosperous and homogenous Middle-East. The controversial Saudi prince Talal has openly declared his intention to embark a seven-day pilgrimage to Holy Land and pray in Al-Aqsa Mosque -- the third holiest site in Islam located in the Old City of Jerusalem -- reported Okaz, the Arabic Saudi Arabian daily on Thursday. "All my Muslim brothers and sisters must understand that it became a moral imperative for all...

    Al Jazeera’s digital media platform AJ+ posted a Fourth of July-themed video mocking Americans as fat, cheese-eating, gun-toting, pill-popping, racist porn watchers. While some on social media applauded the creation, others slammed the Qatar-owned network for using the holiday “to dump” on America. Social media users got particularly riled up by the criticism coming from the channel owned by Qatar — a country where stoning is a legal punishment under Shariah law, women have second class legal status, writers can be imprisoned for criticizing the emir and abuse of foreign laborers has been repeatedly criticized by human rights groups.

    MOSCOW/WARSAW (Reuters) - Russia said on Saturday it was outraged by Poland's destruction of a Soviet war monument, warning Warsaw of the "most negative consequences" after what it said was a flagrant violation of an agreement between the two countries on protecting memorial sites. Poland has been one of the most vocal critics of Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimea peninsula in 2014. Russia and Poland share a history of conflicts and the disagreement over war memorials is likely to add to tensions. "Warsaw must finally understand that the 'war of monuments' unleashed in Poland may have the most negative consequences,...

    On Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Police Department announced it would be on high alert for the July 4th weekend. As local ABC 7 reporter Leanne Suter notes, “There are no credible or specific threats, but there is serious concern of a potential homegrown attack.” So nothing “credible” or “specific” — just “serious concern” about “potential” attacks. Sure, maintaining alertness during periods of vulnerability can be a good thing, but the nonexistence of evidence is concerning, especially when you consider what Deputy Chief Michael Downing said: “The threat stream is very high. In fact, we don’t think it’s been this...

In the end, he believes, the IDF is going to have to do the job. “The Egyptian army has not collapsed, and it is very large, with 600,000 soldiers,” said Mazel. “But for two years they have been fighting guerrillas in Sinai, unsuccessfully. They are just not experienced enough in guerrilla warfare.” Eventually, it is very possible that ISIS will take over Sinai – placing them along...

They are wary of the prospect of Iran shaking off the burden of sanctions and benefiting from a sudden infusion of cash as the regime's bank accounts, holding billions of dollars, are unfrozen. They believe that Iran's impending windfall could enhance its ability to supply weapons and funds to extremist forces across the region. Officials from the Gulf states predict the money could pass into the hands of their bitter enemies, including Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria, Hizbollah in Lebanon and Shia militias in Iraq. ......

    As diplomats rush to reach an agreement to curb Iran's nuclear program, the U.S. military is stockpiling conventional bombs so powerful that strategists say they could cripple Tehran's most heavily fortified nuclear complexes, including one deep underground. The bunker-busting bombs are America's most destructive munitions short of atomic weapons. At 15 tons, each is 5 tons heavier than any other bomb in the U.S. arsenal. In development for more than a decade, the latest iteration of the MOP — massive ordnance penetrator — was successfully tested on a deeply buried target this year at the White Sands Missile Range in...

But it operates more like an exclusive club that brings wealthy, famous people into the Clinton orbit by fashioning fund-raising schemes to solve world problems, like climate change and poverty......the wealthy donors often get something in return — and that’s where the Clintons are running into trouble. One of the clearest examples of this involves Canadian magnate Frank Giustra, who made his pile from both filmmaking and mining.

    A group affiliated with Islamic State has said it fired three rockets into Israel from Egypt's Sinai peninsula. The affiliate, which calls itself Sinai Province, said it had acted in retaliation for what it says is Israeli support for the Egyptian army. Israel said two rockets landed in the south of the country, causing no casualties or material damage. At least 17 Egyptian soldiers and 100 IS militants have died in fighting in northern Sinai since Wednesday. The clashes were triggered by a co-ordinated mass assault of IS militants on the town of Sheikh Zuweid.

Speaking to reporters in Vienna, where diplomats are trying to clinch a comprehensive nuclear pact, a senior Iranian negotiator said the U.N. nuclear agency's standard rules governing access to government information, sites of interest and scientists should be sufficient to ensure that Iran's program is solely for peaceful...

A former senior intelligence official told The Washington Times the policy also requires the government to check other Internet paths her secret information could have taken. The intelligence source said Mrs. Clinton’s communication, whether telephone or emails, would have been targeted by a number of foreign agencies. This source said it is likely her private server was breached.

    FBI agents have made at least 30 arrests on US soil this year as they try to combat the murderous reach of ISIS and its warped followers, Daily Mail Online can disclose. Officials revealed this week that the Islamic terror group has a foothold in all 50 states as it continues to target disaffected Americans through its torrent of online propaganda and slick videos of barbaric beheadings and mutilations. The stark warning comes days after ISIS-inspired gunman Saif Rezgui unleashed horror on at a Tunisian beach resort, killing 39 vacationers and wounding dozens more. The FBI has reportedly set up...

    Does President Obama even want to defeat ISIS?  If so, why is the United States blocking shipments of heavy armaments to the Kurds?  They should be our best friends in the Muslim world and have demonstrated their capacity as excellent fighters with boots on the ground in fighting ISIS.  Which, not so incidentally, wants to kill their men and make sex slaves of their women. Con Coughlin of the U.K. Telegraph reports: The United States has blocked attempts by its Middle East allies to fly heavy weapons directly to the Kurds fighting Islamic State jihadists in Iraq, The Telegraph...

    Back in the 1990s something happened in central Bosnia-Herzegovina that inspired people to this day and helps explain why that country now has more men fighting in Syria and Iraq (over 300), as a proportion of its population, than most in Europe. The formation of a "Mujahideen Battalion" in 1992, composed mainly of Arab volunteers in central Bosnia, was a landmark. Today the dynamic of jihad has been reversed and it is Bosnians who are travelling to Arab lands. "There is a war between the West and Islam," says Aimen Dean, who, as a young Saudi Arabian volunteer, travelled to...

    Evil has a friend… Barack Obama blocks support to the Kurds to fight the Islamic State. ** It’s bad enough that he pulled US troops from Iraq. ** It’s bad enough he created the vacuum that allowed ISIS to flourish. ** It’s bad enough he is unable to comprehend true evil. ** It’s bad enough he lacks the will and courage to battle evil. But now he won’t support the people who are battling ISIS on the ground. Telegraph UK reported: The United States has blocked attempts by its Middle East allies to fly heavy weapons directly to the Kurds...

    An ad unveiled today by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is being denounced by Greta Van Susteren, who says it selectively edited her interview with Rep Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to make it appear the Benghazi investigation is politically motivated. Via her website, the Fox News Channel host has demanded the Clinton campaign remove her 81-second “Briefing” spot, also providing a transcript of the original program to prove Gowdy was not actually backing the Democratic presidential primary candidate’s claims. Van Susteren sees the key discrepancy as “Chairman Gowdy saying ‘it could be’ when I pointed out that a delay in releasing the...

    A State Department spokesman said Wednesday that details from 25 emails were deemed classified and withheld from the 3,000-page trove of Hillary Clinton documents released overnight -- despite the former secretary of state claiming she never sent classified material on her personal email. State Department spokesman John Kirby acknowledged at a briefing that details from the 25 emails are now considered "classified." The messages were released, with those portions redacted. However, Clinton declared in March that she "did not email any classified material to anyone" on her account. "There is no classified material. So I'm certainly well aware of the...

    The mosque in Sandnessjřen starts with call to prayer using outside loudspeakers. It is met with very mixed reactions among the citizens, NRK reports.

A loudspeaker will be placed outside the premises of the mosque and the call to prayer will be heard over the entire neighborhood. The municipality has given the permission, but that this will become a weekly fixture in the town center, has created harsh reactions among people in the municipality. - We are not in Mecca - It is unusual...
  • The 36-Year Project to Whitewash Iran

    The Iranian regime is still holding American hostages. These include the Washington Post’s Tehran correspondent, Jason Rezaian, and Amir Hekmati, an Iranian-American U.S. Marine sentenced to death in 2012 on bogus spying charges and still languishing in the mullahs’ hellish prisons. American flags are burned, and cries of “Death to America!” still ring out at Friday prayers across Iran. The Tehran regime continues to arm and fund Hezbollah, and Iranian forces and proxies now encircle the Arab lands. And the mullahs have in the intervening years raced to develop nuclear weapons. Their centrifuges still churn in defiance of five United...

    The terrorism that threatens Egypt today is because of Obama and Hillary The fate of Egypt hangs in the balance. A series of terrorist attacks by the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS threaten the government of President Abdel El-Sisi, a true Islamic reformer. If Egypt falls into chaos like its neighbor, Libya, there will be no single person who deserves more blame that Barack Hussein Obama. Every action taken by his administration has destabilized the Middle East by supporting terrorists and the nations that sponsor them. This insane policy began in 2011 with Egypt, the most populous Arab country. It was...

    It was in August 2014 that the real danger began, and that we heard the first warnings of war. That month, unmarked Russian troops covertly invaded eastern Ukraine, where the separatist conflict had grown out of its control. The Russian air force began harassing the neighboring Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, which are members of NATO. The US pledged that it would uphold its commitment to defend those countries as if they were American soil, and later staged military exercises a few hundred yards from Russia's border.Both sides came to believe that the other had more drastic intentions....
