    A lawyer for victims of terrorist attacks in Israel on Monday urged a federal appeals court to revive their lawsuit against Facebook Inc, saying Mark Zuckerberg’s congressional testimony undermined the social media company’s argument that it bore no responsibility for content on its platforms. Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief executive, “severely contradicted critical factual positions” that the company took to win dismissal last May of the $3 billion lawsuit by victims and relatives of American victims of Hamas attacks, according to a filing with the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York. “The district court was presented with, and made...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) has called on the Israeli government to show "restraint" amid what has now been weeks of protests by Hamas terrorists who have swarmed the Israeli border and stoked violence. "I am deeply concerned about the deaths and injuries in Gaza," Warren was quoted as saying. "As additional protests are planned for the coming days, the Israel Defense Forces should exercise restraint and respect the rights of Palestinians to peacefully protest." The quote is likely to rankle the pro-Israel community, which has become increasingly strained with the Democratic Party as lawmakers such as Warren adopt a...
  • Hamas: Demand to surrender weapons is 'aggression' against us

    Hamas spokesperson Hazem Kassem slammed US Special Envoy to the Middle East Jason Greenblatt for saying that Hamas should relinquish control of Gaza. "American envoy Jason Greenblatt's attack on Hamas and its leadership, and its demand that the movement surrender its weapons, are a continuation of the American partnership with the occupation, with aggression against our people," Maariv cited Kassem as saying. "This provides coverage for its crimes, use the terms of the occupation itself, and prove his participation in the Israeli propaganda apparatus, which justifies the continuation of the cruel Israeli siege on Gaza." Kassem's words come in response...

    Israel’s defense minister said Tuesday that a Palestinian journalist who was shot dead by Israeli troops on the Israel­-Gaza border was a Hamas operative, although the media production company he founded had recently been vetted for a U.S. government grant. Yaser Murtaja, the co-founder of Ain Media, was shot as he filmed protests at the border fence Friday. Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said that Murtaja, who used drones to film in the course of his work, was giving drone footage of Israeli positions to Hamas, was the equivalent of a captain in the group’s military wing and had been on...

    On Tuesday's 'Morning Joe' on MSNBC, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine warned that Democrats would view any attempt by the president to fire Robert Mueller or signal plans to issue pardons "as the president pushing the nation into a constitutional crisis." (snip) BRZEZINSKI: So the president calls this a witch hunt. He says they didn't find anything. And he really was quite defensive yesterday about -- that this was a sad situation and he's not sure whether or not Mueller will be fired. Are you concerned that this investigation could be thwarted? KAINE: Yes. I think the president is clearly panicked....

    Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=26&v=qgdxnFizHpE A seven-year-old girl was sent by Hamas into Israel, to face the IDF forces stationed along the border fence with Gaza. The IDF confirmed that the suspected terrorist was a young girl, received her, and ensured that she returned safely to her parents. "The Hamas terror organization cynically uses women and children, sending them to the border and endangering their lives," an IDF spokesman said. Approximately 17,000 Gazans are protesting in five locations along the Gaza-Israel border. The protest is part of the planned "march of return," and participants are burning tires, and throwing firebombs and stones at...

    The Hamas-affiliated newspaper Felesteen reported that the head of the UNRWA workers’ union in Gaza, Amir al-Mishal, said in his speech to the demonstrators that “the people who gathered here came to express their right to return.” He added that “rights are not received with supplication, but must be obtained by force.” Mishal called on the international community to assume its legal, moral and humanitarian responsibility for UNRWA until the return of refugees to their land, homeland and homes. He praised the Palestinian Arabs who will participate in “peaceful” demonstrations on Friday and in the so-called large-scale “March of the...

Other passports had been stolen from Irish, German, Australian...

    Palestinian Arabs demonstrated in Ramallah on Thursday, demanding the closure of the America House which, is operated by the U.S. consulate in eastern Jerusalem and located in the city of Ramallah. The role of the America House, which is established in 2010, is to disseminate American culture. The protesters demanded the removal of American workers and the closure of their offices, in protest of the Trump administration's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel and its intention to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem by mid-May, in time for Israel’s 70th Independence Day....
  • Gaza blast: Explosion strikes Palestinian PM Rami Hamdallah’s convoy

    The explosion went off shortly after the convoy entered Gaza through the Erez crossing with Israel. The Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah was unharmed and went on to inaugurate a long-awaited sewage plant project in the northern part of the strip. Fatah quickly held Gaza's Islamic Hamas rulers responsible for the "cowardly attack" on the convoy, further escalating tensions between the bitter rival factions. Three of the vehicles in Hamdallah's convoy were damaged, their windows blown out. One had signs of blood on the door. Hamas confirmed an explosion struck the convoy but said no injuries were reported. It condemned...

    A 27-year-old Arab Terrorist from the Saraya al-Quds cell, a branch of Islamic Jihad, was killed in an accidental explosion in the northern Gaza Strip, said Ashraf al-Qidra, a spokesman for the Hamas-run Health Ministry said on Saturday.

Major General Yoav Mordechai, the head of the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), said that Frahat died while “manufacturing weapons and ammunition for Islamic Jihad in...

    Back-channel diplomacy is neither new nor illegal. snip Erik Prince, who is close to several members of the Trump administration, set up the back channel with a Russian tied to the Kremlin, the report alleges. Prince reportedly met in Seychelles with the Putin-tied official and a UAE lobbyist to discuss future U.S.-Russia relations. Notably, Prince has never taken a position in the administration. The back-channel allegations are far removed from the original “collusion” allegations put forward by much of the legacy media. Even if it turns out to be true, there does not appear to be anything illegal or unprecedented...
