    Much like many brand new commercial aircraft, Boeing’s 737 Max’s entry-into-service hasn’t been the smoothest — and the latest incident (in what is a string of 737 Max related events) took place earlier this morning, with a brand new Norwegian Air jet. Flying from Dubai (DXB) to Oslo (OSL), Norwegian Air’s two-month-old Boeing 737 MAX 8 encountered engine trouble, and following around 20 minutes of flying at its cruising altitude of 32,000ft…the newly built American jet initiated an emergency descent to Shiraz International Airport, located in south-central Iran. Before its landing, the aircraft circulated several times over the region, after...

    Donald Trump has a name for everything and everyone, from Crooked Hillary to Little Rocket Man, who for a time became his best friend. Will he call the next region-wide conflagration in the Middle East, when it breaks out, Obama’s War? If he hasn’t thought of that already, he should start considering it now. Because the catastrophic policies of our former president have emboldened the Islamic state of Iran and enabled it to threaten the United States and our allies militarily in ways never before possible. When Obama took office in January 2009, he inherited a strong U.S. military and...

    U.S. Defense contractors are looking at a potentially sharp downturn in arms sales to key Arab states like Saudi Arabia and Egypt, for decades their best foreign customers, because of the Obama administration's effort to forge a new relationship with Iran and to punish the Egyptian military for usurping their country's first Islamist president. The Saudis are reported to be seeking to buy five German Type-209 submarines, similar to those acquired by Israel and capable of launching nuclear-tipped cruise missiles, for $3.4 billion, with a long-term program of up to 25 boats in a $16.03 billion deal. Germany's Bild newspaper,...

    Security Council became a kangaroo court, turning a perverted version of “international law” against the Trump administration for its just defense of the Jewish state of Israel and Israel's right to choose its own capital On December 6th, President Trump announced his decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to instruct the State Department to begin the process of relocating the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Two days later, at a special meeting of the United Nations Security Council, the other 14 members of the Council, including U.S. allies such as France, the United...

    Last Saturday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union Party voted down a motion to freeze funding for the Palestinian Authority until it stops its “pay to slay” imbursements to terrorists and their families. The motion stated that “with the payments, the PA knowingly and willingly supports terror against Israel and makes this a worthy financial business.” But Merkel’s party wasn’t moved. One day later, a Palestinian terror attack seriously wounded a pregnant woman. The baby, who was delivered in an emergency procedure, held out for a few days and died on Wednesday. In October during a visit to...

Mahmoudi After a 2 day trip to Italy by Zarif, the Iranian regime’s Foreign Minister, from which he returned on Friday (date?), his deputy, Araghchi, and Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization, went to Brussels on Saturday. The main purpose of these trips, according to Araghchi, is to save the JCPOA, which is not at all in good condition and currently at a critical point of high risk. State TV channel 2 (NOV 26 2018) in an article titled "Europe's Controversy at the Political Heart of the Green Continent," interpreted the news as follows: Araghchi, deputy foreign...

    By: Hassan.Mahmoudi Iran has the ability to build ballistic missiles with a broader range, a senior commander of the elite Revolutionary Guards said on Monday, according to the semi-official Fars News agency. (Reuters) “We have the ability to build missiles with a broader range,” Hajizadeh said, according to Fars News. He added, “We don’t have limitations from a technical perspective or by conventions with regard to missile range.” The Iranian government has ruled out negotiations with Washington over its military capabilities, particularly its missile program to run by the Iranian revolutionary guard's corps (IRGC). Iran is spending billions of dollars...

    ISIS release pictures of their new gold coins they say will 'break capitalist enslavement' - so why are they still paying their deranged gunmen in US dollars? ISIS have released a new hour long video, showing off their latest propaganda tool - their very own coin currency. The video, which includes a dreary and distorted history of world economics, shows the smelting of gold, silver and copper coins. Dramatised by clips from Hollywood war films, the film accuses the US of 'confiscating Americans real wealth through an executive decree' with the introduction of the Gold Reserve Act in 1934. Yet...

    France’s foreign minister warned Friday that North Korea could have the capacity to deliver a nuclear strike on the United States and even Europe “within months”. Jean-Yves Le Drian called the situation following a string of missile tests by Pyongyang “extremely serious” and urged the reclusive state to turn to dialogue to ease spiralling tensions. “We see a North Korea whose objective is to have missiles capable of transporting a nuclear weapon tomorrow,” Le Drian told RTL radio. “In a few months, that will be a reality. At that moment, when it has the capability to hit the US, even...

    Israel has been watching the construction of tunnels into Israel from Lebanon and has decided to make public the fact that they are aware of them. If UNIFIL will not stop the aggression, Israel will have to do it, and under international law it is entitled to do it. They will also continue to block "smart missile" manufacture, which is a threat to the safety of Israelis. A final note about the phony "sanhedrin." Be careful not to follow the misplaced enthusiasm about the red heifer and the Third Temple--it just makes believers look gullible and foolish. Right now there...

    Iran on Saturday launched a ballistic missile that can deliver nukes — and the near-complete silence of the press aside, it’s a big deal. The latest test disclosed, once more, the flaws in the Iranian nuclear deal and the confusion of our European allies, who are alarmed by the mullahs’ behavior but fear losing the deal that enables it. “The Iranian regime has just test-fired a medium range ballistic missile that’s capable of carrying multiple warheads,” Secretary of State Pompeo tweeted Sunday, adding: “This test violates UNSCR 2231” — the United Nations Security Council resolution that made the nuclear deal...

    A U.S. attempt to get the United Nations to condemn violence by Palestinian militant group Hamas for the first time failed on Thursday because the draft resolution fell short of votes needed in the General Assembly. The resolution required two-thirds support and while Assembly resolutions are non-binding, they can carry political weight. The U.S. text received 87 votes in favor, 58 against, 32 abstentions and 16 countries did not vote. In an earlier procedural move requested by Kuwait, the 193-member body narrowly voted to require two-thirds support and not a simple majority for adoption of the draft resolution. Outgoing U.S....
