  • Fatah Facebook Inciting Murder of Gershon Mesika

    On Sunday morning, a female terrorist was attempting to stab a girl in the bus station at the junction of the Samaria Regional Brigade, when former Samaria Regional Council head Gershon Mesika noticed the incident and drove his car in her direction to try and stop her. Mesika’s car ran into a ditch after hitting the terrorist. At that point, according to Elyakim Gross from Itamar, he, Gross, shot two bullets into the terrorist’s body, and a soldier who had rushed over also shot her twice. The “official Fatah” Facebook page offered an entirely different narrative:

    It wasn't through a phone call or a knock at a door that Faith Camir found out her boyfriend had been shot to death next to Mojave High School on Friday. It was through a video on Facebook, the 16-year-old said Saturday night at a roadside memorial in front of the school where he was shot. Taylor Brantley, 16, was seen "lying there, fighting for his life," she said with tears in her eyes. Brantley, who was identified by his family as a Mojave student, died at University Medical Center shortly after the shooting, which stemmed from an after-school fight...

Hoping to foil Kosovo's attempt to become a member of UNESCO, ethnically Serbian student activists in the self-proclaimed state created a page on Instagram called “No to Kosovo's Membership in UNESCO.” There they posted photos of numerous Orthodox Christian places of worship and significance, including monasteries, churches and cemeteries, which were demolished in the years after...

Trump has argued H-1B visas displace Americans who otherwise might land high-paying tech jobs. He’s advocating restrictions in the program as part of an overhaul on immigration that includes deporting immigrants who lack legal status in the U.S....

    Plenty of users take what they read online at face value, which some social experiments have proven. The average user often doesnt check facts or consider whether the source is credible. You look at a Wikipedia article and assume that it all must be true, said Christo Wilson, a computer science professor at Northeastern University who researched algorithms and personalization extensively. Or you search for something on Google and think the results are subjective and correct off the bat.

The newspaper quoted naval commanders and intelligence officials as saying they were monitoring significantly greater Russian activity along the cables' known routes from the North Sea to Northeast Asia and...
