    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu instructed senior security officials to prepare an emergency plan to deal with settler violence against the IDF during an 'emergency session' of the cabinet on Tuesday. The meeting was held the morning after a night raid by scores of angry youth on an IDF base in Samaria that resulted in clashes with soldiers and damage to IDF vehicles. Police reinforcements were required to chase the youth from the base. No one can break the law. No one can raise a hand against the IDF or the police," Netanyahu said. "This is the foundation of democracy. Land...

    Michael Gaynor, 25, completed his bachelors degree and certification to teach elementary and high-school physical education in May 2009, then set out during a recession to find that dream job. Over the next two years, the quest would take him from substitute teaching and respite care work in Iowa, back to his parents home in Skokie; to Florida, where he waited tables, then back to Skokie; to Colorado as a substitute teacher, coach and camp counselor, then, back to Skokie. My moves back home were always transitional. They allowed me to save up money, not having to pay rent and...

    Authorities in Ohio have implicated a high school junior in the death of a Florida man whose body was found in a shallow grave after he responded to a bogus Craigslist ad for a job on a cattle farm. The Florida man's death came to light after police were contacted Nov. 6 by a South Carolina man who answered the same fake ad. The man told police that he had been shot, but escaped by running away through the woods, according to Noble County Sheriff Stephen Hannum. The crimes occurred in a remote area outside Caldwell in southeastern Ohio, about...
  • Obama Loses Support Among Youth in Election 2012

    New poll numbers show that President Obama has suffered massive erosion in enthusiasm among voters under 30, dropping from 81 percent in November 2008 to 48 percent this month. Young voters, who were crucial to Obamas election and are even more crucial to his re-election, have unemployment rates sharply higher than the national average. Obama rode into the White House in 2008 on a wave of hopeful young voters under 30. Three years later, though, that hope has waned and Obama must figure out how to again galvanize the youth vote if he expects to win re-election in 2012. The...

    NAIROBI, Kenya: A US government-backed program is telling young Kenyans that Yes Youth Can! in a political program designed to improve leadership skills that carries overtones of President Barack Obamas election message. Hundreds of young Kenyans gathered Tuesday for the programs first county-level meeting. The initiative, though, has caused anxiety among Kenyan politicians who fear the $45 million project is a way to oust them from power, prompting the US Embassy to issue several clarifications US Ambassador Scott Gration said in an e-mail on Tuesday that the US is not empowering young Kenyans to overthrow the government.

    The local media would not release the race of the teens but the knock out game is popular with black youth mobs in St. Louis.

He tells NewsChannel 5 he was driving along Grand with his security officer when they saw the crowd from a distance. Slay...

  • America's Youth - Soiled and Ready!

    America's Youth - Soiled and Ready! Today, in every facet of our American culture and society there is nothing found that is NOT untainted or unsoiled by the horrific consequences from the VIOLATIONS of the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God (Isaiah 24:5-6). There is no greater place where this embracement of decadence is to be found today than in our YOUTH (10 -18 years old). With the liberal secularist controlling the music industry, video games, image media and educational system, it is no wonder that all kinds of godless immorality is promoted, applauded and encouraged by our society...

    Youth unemployment is at an all time high as job growth hasn't kept pace with population growth. In developed countries the situation worsened with the onset of the recession. And earlier this year, it helped spark the Arab spring across the Middle East and North Africa. The OECD recently released its latest data on youth unemployment. We put together a list of 16 countries that have a youth unemployment rate higher than America's 18.4%. Note: Data is for 2010

    I heard it all the time in high school, and I hear it from younger students all the time now: Im pro-life, but I cant vote yet. My immediate response is so what! Voting for pro-life candidates is but a fraction of our responsibilities as pro-lifers. Young people are vital to the movement because we represent the future, and there is so much more to our activism than simply voting pro-life when election seasons come around. We need middle and high school students standing up and being a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves. Dont ever think that...

    President Obama coasted into the White House thanks in part to the youth vote, individuals aged 18-29 who bought into his vague promise to bring change. During Mr. Obamas term in office, however, many of this group - known as Millennials - have been forced to learn how to subsist on pocket change. This isnt quite what they were expecting when they turned out in historic droves in 2008. According to a recent poll commissioned by Generation Opportunity, 57 percent of Millennials participating said they will learn more about the policy positions of presidential candidates in the 2012 election than...

    A new poll whose results were released on Monday has found that most youth in Israel tend to identify with the right side of the political map. According to the results reported on Channel 10 News, 17% of high school students believe that Israels next Prime Minister should be outspoken rightist Avigdor Lieberman (Yisrael Beiteinu). Lieberman is followed by well-known leftist journalist and television personality, Yair Lapid (who has not officially announced he is running for politics but who has openly expressed his desire to rebuild his late fathers, Tommy Lapids militantly secular and anti-hareidi Shinui party), who got 13%....
