    Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday signed a law offering a hectare (2.5 acres) of land for free in Russia's Far East. The move, which is open to all Russian citizens, aims to boost the population and the economy in the vast remote region. Estimates by Russia's Minister for the Development of the Far East, Aleksandr Galushka, predicts that the project could increase the region's population to 36 million people, from the current 6.4 million. According to the bill, the land will be free of payment or tax for five years and may be used for any lawful purpose. However,...

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Wednesday warned that Donald Trump is a “loose cannon” and said the United States should not take a risk on an unreliable candidate, according to Reuters. "He is a loose cannon, and loose cannons tend to misfire," she said in an interview with CNN, citing Trump stances including a claim that climate change was a Chinese hoax. The comments came as Trump appears to be the Republican presidential nominee, especially after his opponents Ted Cruz and John Kasich both stepped down following Trump’s victory in the Indiana primary. Clinton said in the interview that...

    Hamas announced on Wednesday night that it had reached understandings with Israel on calming the tensions along the Gaza border and stopping the fire towards southern Israel. One of the leaders of the organization said that in return, Israel had undertaken upon itself not to conduct operations inside Gaza. Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzouk, commenting on Facebook on the understandings, said they had been reached with Egyptian mediation. “What happened on the Gaza border was a Zionist attempt to apply a new reality on the border. This required Hamas to rise up in order to prevent the tools of the...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, abruptly suspending his Republican presidential campaign Tuesday night after another crushing primary defeat to Donald Trump, assured emotional supporters in Indiana that they helped grow an “extraordinary” movement – declaring his team “left it all on the field” in their final push. ADVERTISEMENT "It appears that path [to victory] has been foreclosed," Cruz told supporters in Indianapolis. "Together, we left it all on the field of Indiana. We gave it everything we've got, but the voters chose another path, and so with a heavy heart but with boundless optimism for the long-term future of our nation,...

    Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has said Israel should continue building in Judea and Samaria, insisting the Jewish state should "keep moving forward" in response to Arab terrorism. Speaking to the UK's Daily Mail, Trump emphasized his support for the State of Israel, and appeared to veer away from previous comments in which he declared that he would stay "neutral" on the Arab-Israeli conflict. Trump referenced the "thousands of missiles being launched into Israel," by Arab terrorists prior to the 2014 Gaza war, asking rhetorically: "Who would put up with that? Who would stand for it?" He also said he...

    Israel’s largest opposition party is negotiating the terms for a possible unity government, a senior Zionist Camp official said on Tuesday. Speaking with Army Radio, Tzipi Livni (Zionist Camp) confirmed that her party was in talks with the Netanyahu government over a possible unity coalition. “I was shown things [brought up] in the talks, [but] were not finalized,” Livni said. A senior Likud official confirmed the negotiations to expand the governing coalition, telling party chiefs already in the government that they would have to make concessions if the Zionist Camp does join. “Every party will have to do its part...

    Authorities have announced that customs investigators, along with the Israel Security Authority (ISA, also known as the Shin Bet or Shabak), recently prevented an attempt to smuggle four tons of ammonium chloride into Gaza. The chemical, which is used in the production of weapons, was hidden in bags of salt. Four tons would have allowed Hamas or other terror groups to create hundreds of long-range rockets. About a week before Passover, a shipment labeled as 40 tons of salt reached the Nitzana crossing, which is used for transporting goods between Egypt and both Israel and Gaza. An extensive search of...

    The radical Islamist organization Hizb ut-Tahrir, which has pursued an Islamic Caliphate since 1953, held a massive conference in Ramallah on Saturday, calling upon the armies of Jordan and Egypt to intervene directly and “free Palestine." Thousands participated in the event, which was billed as “Tent of Believers: the Caliphate Through the Path of the Prophet, and the Tent of Hypocrites, Heretics, and Imperialists." Black-and-white flags bearing the pledge of allegiance to Allah and Mohammed were waved while participants chanted slogans calling for the “liberation” of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. “Officers and soldiers, break down the borders [of Israel],"...

    Ruti Hasno, the bereaved widow of Avraham Hasno who was brutally run over and murdered by an Arab terrorist last October, spoke with Arutz Sheva on Monday following a difficult Passover without her husband. Sahban Wael At-Titi, who ran over Hasno, was originally indicted for manslaughter last month before that charge was upgraded to murder following the outrage of Ruti Hasno and her children. Hasno, a 54-year-old resident of Kiryat Arba, was murdered at the Al Fawar junction near Hevron. After being ambushed by Arab rock throwers, Hasno left his vehicle to chase off his attackers, but was intentionally run...

    Politicians should take careful note of the discontent in the street, as one woman from Dimona has as much voting power as the Prime Minister himself. She now represents many of the population’s feelings about how a young soldier has been dealt with. Those who wish to stay in power and those who wish to head a motivated army should have their ears to the ground instead of blaming extremist right-wing organisations and "twisted ideology.". A walk down the street in one of Israel’s major cities turned up the following comments voiced loudly in plain hearing range of everyone around:...

    Leftist Jewish MK Dov Khenin of the near completely Arab Joint List party spoke with the British Sky News on Sunday, and claimed that Israel is committing an "ethnic cleansing in a very sophisticated way" in Judea and Samaria. Khenin referred to the demolition of illegal Arab construction in Area C, an array of regions classified as being under full Israeli control by the 1994 Oslo Accords, and said that the Israeli government is trying to conquer the land so Israelis can settle there in the future. .....

    As the annual Eurovision Song Contest approaches, the Stockholm theater hosting the event has published the rules about waving flags, and enumerated several flags that will be forbidden. Flags with commercial messages, those that discriminate against sectors of the population, those that disrupt the broadcast and those with messages in languages other than English will not be permitted. The specific list of banned lags include those of Kosovo, Basque, the Crimean Peninsula, the PLO, Donetsk, Northern Cyprus, Transnistria and ISIS. Saeb Erekat, a senior member of the Palestinian Authority, sent a letter in response, demanding an apology from the organizers...

    "A 'twisted ideology' drove an Israeli soldier to fatally shoot a Palestinian assailant in the head as he lay subdued in the road," the US news site Vice claims, based on a classified IDF report on the recent incident. "A few seconds before the attack, few seconds before the attack, as came up in the investigation with Sergeant M, (Azariya) told him that 'a terrorist that wounded their friend needs to die," the site reported, adding that "Sergeant M tried to calm the soldier down telling him, 'Relax, our wounded friend will be just fine.'" Despite this, Azariya still shot...

    A groundbreaking Israeli security system could have helped French authorities prevent the Paris massacre last November - but authorities balked at the deal under pressure from the anti-Israel boycott movement. Speaking to Fox News, an Israeli counter-terrorism source with intimate knowledge of both the software involved and the deal itself said that after the Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher attack the previous January an Israeli company offered to provide French authorities with special terrorist-tracking software, which could well have enabled them to flag the ISIS terrorist network operating under their noses. But although the French were initially very keen on...

    The overwhelming majority of young Palestinians believe the Israeli-Palestinian conflict cannot be resolved through negotiations. A poll of Palestinian youth, defined as ages 16-30, published Monday by the Jerusalem Media and Communications Center depicts a community that is socially conservative, supports violence against Israel, is skeptical about its leadership and opposes the Islamic State. It also shows significantly greater support for violence among Palestinians in the Gaza Strip than among those in Judea and Samaria While 47.4 percent of youths in Judea and Samaria oppose stabbing attacks, 78.6 percent of Gaza youths support them, according to the poll. In addition,...

    While the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement has done little to hide its malicious anti-Israel hatred, the movement hitherto has succeeded in maintaining the appearance of legitimacy, presenting itself as the peaceful alternative to terrorism. Despite rhetoric which pro-Israel activists have noted signals a rejection of Jewish statehood per se and draws upon the kind of terrorist propaganda disseminated by Hamas and the PLO, no clear link tying BDS to supporters of terror organizations could be found. Last week, however, a former terrorism finance analyst for the US Treasury Department offered testimony to congress suggesting connections between the BDS movement...

    Abu Sayyaf, a Filipino Islamist jihadi group that has pledged allegiance to Islamic State (ISIS), beheaded a hostage from Canada, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau confirmed on Monday. John Ridsdel, an ex-journalist turned mining executive, was named as the victim of the Filipino terrorists. Despite having pledged allegiance to ISIS, Abu Sayyaf has not been shown to be receiving support from the group. "I am outraged by the news that a Canadian citizen held hostage has been killed. This was an act of cold-blooded murder," said Trudeau. According to police in Jolo Island in Sulu province, a jungled province in...

Abdelghani Merah has light brown eyes, a shaven head and a surname immediately associated with terror in France, but after losing everything because of his brother's acts he has found a calling: de-radicalizing youngsters drawn to jihad. In an interview with AFP, he says he will never forget the morning in March 2012 when he turned on the television and recognized the street where his...

    The Jewish People will begin celebrating the Jubilee of Jerusalem's liberation and reunification next month, marking the 50th year after the Six Day War – but pro-war Israelis and other Jews plan to take advantage of the yearlong festivities to call worldwide for a unilateral Israeli withdrawal from Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem. Previous unilateral withdrawals in favor of the Palestinian Authority have led to many Israeli deaths at the hands of Palestinian terrorists. This includes the disengagement/expulsion from Gaza. The government decided last year to appoint a steering committee to set the tone of Jerusalem's Jubilee festivities. Its conclusions...

    A Jerusalem court has convicted Yosef Haim Ben-David of murdering Mohammed Abu Khder, as well as a number of other crimes. The judge accepted prosecutors' claims that Ben-David led his two nephews, aged 17 and 16, in kidnapping 16-year-old Abu Khder, dousing him in gasoline and burning him to death in 2014. They then attempted to destroy any evidence of their crimes. One of the nephews received a life sentence, while the second was given 21 years in prison. While the judge rejected Ben-David's plea of insanity, he put off the sentencing in light of the defendant's mental state. Ben-David...

At some points it reached as much as 30 meters in depth. Video After being discovered, IDF forces quickly mobilized to secure and neutralize it - though precisely how is under a gag order, as is the tunnel's exact...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu blasted a UNESCO decision divorcing Judaism from the Temple Mount Saturday night, after a motion over the weekend only referred to the site with Arabic terminology. "This is yet another absurd UN decision," Netanyahu stated late Saturday. "UNESCO ignores the unique historic connection of Judaism to the Temple Mount, where the two temples stood for a thousand years and to which every Jew in the world has prayed for thousands of years." "The UN is rewriting a basic part of human history and has again proven that there is no low to which it will not...

    One of the Brussels bombing terrorists starred in a Swedish documentary about Muslim integration, a Swedish newspaper revealed Friday - before becoming a jihadist nearly 10 years later. Osama Krayem, 23, starred in the 2005 film when he was 11 about his successful integration into Malmo society. The film, Without Borders — A Film About Sport And Integration, features the suspect describing how the Malmo soccer team helped him acclimate to life in Sweden - and, according to critics, illustrated “the essential role of sport for integration." “Osama was sullen and stayed in the background," Christer Girke, marketing manager for...

    Security forces and civil administration arrived Thursday morning to the “Shchunat Gal” outpost near Hevron and demolished a fence, foundations for a barn and a building that served as a synagogue. As a result, clashes broke out between the demolition team and locals. Two minors were details but released shortly thereafter. Yisrael Bramson, acting mayor of Kiryat Arba, responded to the destruction of the synagogue: “(Moshe) Ya'alon again demonstrated his attitude to settlements and in to synagogues in particular. This structure in question was not built on Arab territory, only the Likud party would destroy and devastate the land of...

    The military prosecutor on Tuesday indicted Mahmoud a-Titi, 27, from Hebron, on a manslaughter charge for running over and murdering Avraham Hasno, 54, during a riot in Hebron last October. Abraham Asher Hasno was killed in a drive-by attack while driving near Hebron’s Kiryat Arba. His car was hit by stones thrown by Arabs, and Hasno stopped to assess the damage and to chase away the attackers. As he left his vehicle, an Arab truck ran him over and dragged his body a few hundred feet. The mortally injured Jewish man lay on the road for quite a while, did...

    The Pentagon has confirmed reports it plans to cut the number of US peacekeeping troops in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, partly because of the growing threat from the Islamic State group, an official said Tuesday. About 700 US troops participate in a UN operation established after Israel and Egypt signed a 1979 peace deal and agreed for a Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) mission to monitor compliance. The mission has historically been somewhat low-key, but in recent months attacks from IS jihadists have put forces on a state of constant high alert. In September for instance, a roadside bombing injured six...

    The Danish government is charging hundreds of its citizens with human smuggling for giving rides to refugees, the Washington Post reports. Denmark has been aggressively combating the wave of migrants from Germany. The government strongly reduced the benefits it provides, migrants are banned from public transportation, and authorities often confiscate their possessions. Denmark even placed ads in Lebanese newspapers, warning people against coming to the Scandinavian country. At the same time, Danish citizens who take migrants to the Swedish border are arrested for human trafficking. While the government is primarily based around the center-right, the strongly anti-immigrant Danish People's Party...

    Two Orthodox teenagers were verbally attacked in London on Monday. The pair, one aged 14 and the other 17, were walking in the Stamford Hill neighborhood when a strange man came at them yelling "Allah Akbar! F---ing Jews! Kill the Jews!" Though the assailant did not physically harm the two, he remained in the area and yelled anti-Semitic remarks to other passers-by. The two teens quickly called Shomrim, the local Jewish neighborhood watch organization, for help. Police officers arrested the man for disturbing the public order with racially aggravating circumstances. He has not been identified and is only described as...

    Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton emphasized her pro-Israel credentials during an interview Saturday with the New York Daily News, looking to capitalize on recent missteps by rival Bernie Sanders, whose faux pas on the 2014 Gaza war has alienated some Jewish backers. Clinton sat down with the paper’s editorial board for an extended interview which was released on Monday. Speaking on a variety of issues both foreign and domestic, the former Secretary of State staked out hawkish positions on the war on terror and support for Israel, distinguishing herself both from Sanders and her former boss, President Obama. Regarding terrorism, Clinton...

    Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=86&v=kfZ0C6aFkf4 Hamas has a new tactic for ensuring fidelity to its radical form of Islam and encouraging young Arabs to volunteer for terrorist actions against Israel – ritual exorcism. According to the Gatestone Institute, schools in Gaza have welcomed Islamic preachers from The Ship of Missionary Salvation, an organization supported by the Hamas-dominated Waqf Ministry. The preachers, who visit schools across Gaza, single out children for ritual exorcism, claiming they have been possessed by demon spirits. Students who are subjected to the ritual are “cleansed," but also find themselves pressured to continue to show signs of their “devotion” to...

    Allegedly this is commonplace in Ghaza. But according to search I did, it's done all over the Islamic world as well.
