  • Syria shoots down Israeli warplane as conflict escalates

    02/10/2018 10:15:56 AM PST · by BenLurkin · 38 replies
    An Israeli F-16 fighter jet has crashed after being hit by Syrian air defences during an offensive in Syria, the Israeli military says. The two pilots parachuted to safety before the crash in northern Israel. It is believed to be the first time Israel has lost a jet in the Syrian conflict. The plane was hit during air strikes in response to an Iranian drone launch into Israeli territory, Israel says. The drone was shot down. Israel later launched further strikes in Syria. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) say they hit aerial defence batteries and Iranian military sites in the...

    Iran Attacks Israel With Drone, Syria Shoots Down F-16By Joel Leyden Israel News AgencyJerusalem, Israel — February 10, 2018 … Iran attacked Israel with an armed drone as it entered the skies over Northern Israel. The Israel Defense Forces responded by shooting the drone down and targeting the Iranian drone control station in Syria. Israeli civilians then came under fire by Syrian and Iranian rockets which resulted in Israel dispatching several fighter jets to destroy the missile and anti-aircraft stations. One Israeli F-16 was shot down over Israel with both pilots ejecting. The IDF said that the jet had crashed...

    JERUSALEM -- When Vice President Mike Pence wrapped up his address to Israel's Knesset, a voice in the 120-member legislative body shouted out, "God bless you, Mr. Vice President." The voice belonged to Yehuda Glick, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's conservative Likud Party. It was not all love. Members of the Knesset, or MKs, who are part of the Joint List (an alliance of Arab-dominated parties) boycotted or protested Pence's speech to protest President Donald Trump's announcement last month that the United States would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv....

    Congress Quietly Pushing Bill to Require National Biometric ID for ‘ALL Americans’ Earlier this month, Rep. Bob Goodlatte [R-VA-6] introduced H.R.4760 – Securing America’s Future Act of 2018, a sweeping bill that entails everything from Education and the Workforce to Homeland Security to the military. Also, tucked away in this 400-page behemoth of a bill are the details of a new biometric National ID card that could soon be required for everyone. Not surprisingly, there is almost no media coverage on this legislation.

    Shocking pictures show dozens of tanks and armoured vehicles crossing over the border in a terrifying display of military might. But the Syrian-Kurdish YPG militia has denied there is a full-scale invasion underway, claiming forces clashed in Afrin but Turkish soldiers were beaten back. YPG official, Nouri Mahmoudi, said "all the Turkish military's ground attacks against Afrin have been repelled so far and they have been forced to retreat." A statement from the militia said: "Our people are holding on to their land and do not accept surrender... we repeat our determination to protect our people in Afrin against the...

    Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas threatened war if US President Donald Trump does not allocate Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian State. In a Cairo speech, Abbas said, "Jerusalem is the key to peace if it is our capital, and if it is not - it is the key to war. Trump will need to chose." According to Abbas, Trump provoked millions of Muslims by choosing to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "There is no such thing as a Palestinian who will give up even one millimeter of Jerusalem," he claimed. Last week, Abbas told the Palestine Liberation...

    Iran’s missile program has been the target of criticism by the US and the European Union for quite some time. When Yemeni Houthi rebels launched a missile toward Saudi Arabia on November 5, 2017, Iran was accused of having supplied it to them, a charge Iranian officials categorically denied. But on Friday, January 12, a United Nations panel concluded that the Islamic Republic had violated a UN arms embargo by directly or indirectly providing missiles and drones to the Shi'ite rebels in Yemen. In the 79-page report, the panel accuses Iran of violating UN Security Council Resolution 2216, passed in...

    Singer Ginuwine has sparked a heated debate on Twitter after a recent episode of Celebrity Big Brother UK. In the latest episode, Ginuwine seemingly rejected fellow housemate India Willoughby. The controversy stems from a conversation between Willoughby and the “Pony” singer, in which she asked whether he would date a trans woman. “You would date me, yeah,” Willoughby, who is a trans woman herself, asked. “Not if you were trans,” Ginuwine replied. After Ginuwine replied that he would not date a trans woman, Willoughby attempted to plant a kiss on the singer. When her advance was rejected, Willoughby stormed off....
  • Temptation; the underlying religious principle ...war pt 3

    In Genesis Three we see the Temptation of the first Adam, (along with his wife).There is much to learn in the account, about the nature of the adversary, human psychology, and the power of well crafted lies to seduce us. In Matthew Four we have another temptation narrative, that of the ‘last Adam’. The Lord Jesus Christ had been baptized and affirmed by the very voice of God, and anointed with the Spirit of God, when he was “led” of the Spirit out into the wilderness. It was time to engage in the Spiritual conflict. He is tempted as a...

    Vice President Pence arrived in Aspen, Colo., this week for a holiday vacation — but not without encountering a silent protest from his neighbors in the liberal ski resort town. “Make America Gay Again,” reads a rainbow banner posted on the stone pillar at the end of the driveway of the home where Pence and his wife, Karen, are staying. A dispatcher with the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office referred The Washington Post to the White House press office Saturday, but Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Buglione told the Aspen Times that Pence’s next-door neighbors posted the banner shortly after the vice president...

    The most moving and eloquent words spoken in the UN General Assembly, the assembly of hypocrisy, incitement, and lies, were articulated by Daniel Moynihan, the U.S. Ambassador to the UN, after the UNGA on November 10, 1975 passed the infamous Resolution that declared that "Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination." Moynihan rose to declare that “this is a lie which the UN has now declared to be truth. A great evil has been loosed on the world. The U.S. did not acknowledge, it will not abide by, it will never acquiesce in this infamous act... the abomination...
  • CNN Panel Mocks Video's Thanks to Trump For Favoring 'Merry Christmas'

    Anyone who has been out in the real world during current and previous Christmas shopping seasons knows that there has been an informal (and occasionally formal) proscription against stores wishing customers a "Merry Christmas" and promoting Christmas in their ads and promotions. On Friday, Wolf Blitzer's CNN panel tried to pretend that the hostility towards "Merry Christmas" has never existed, as they mocked a video which exaggerated its thanks to President Donald Trump for "allowing us to say merry Christmas." Trump has made his preference for "Merry Christmas" very clear. The Trumps' 2017 Christmas card, as would be expected, has a...

    The course, which will launch in the fall of 2018 through Swarthmore’s religion department, will examine the Bible through a queer lens. It will examine issues of sex, gender, and identity as they present themselves in one of human history’s most influential texts. “This course surveys queer and trans* readings of biblical texts. It introduces students to the complexity of constructions of sex, gender, and identity in one of the most influential literary works produced in ancient times,” the course description reads. “By reading the Bible with the methods of queer and trans* theoretical approaches, this class destabilizes long held...

    First, it is beyond the jurisdiction of the UN to tell a sovereign nation what it can and cannot recognize. The United States often stands alone with Israel against the world, and the US and Israel have been right. The bias of the international community against the nation state of the Jewish people has been long standing and evident, especially at the UN. Recall the infamous General Assembly Resolution declaring Zionism to be a form of racism. It received overwhelming support from the tyrannical nations of the world, which constitute a permanent majority of the UN, and was rescinded only...

    The United Nations general assembly has delivered a stinging rebuke to Donald Trump, voting by a huge majority to reject his unilateral recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The vote came after a redoubling of threats by Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, who said that Washington would remember which countries “disrespected” America by voting against it. Despite the warning, 128 members voted on Thursday in favour of the resolution supporting the long-standing international consensus that the status of Jerusalem – which is claimed as a capital by both Israel and the Palestinians – can only be settled...

He says in a report to the Security Council that the United Nations is investigating Iran’s possible transfer of ballistic missiles to Houthi Shiite rebels in Yemen that may have been used in launches aimed at Saudi Arabia. He says several other launches have also been brought to his attention. …

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has lashed out at Israel after Donald Trump decided to recognise Jerusalem as the Jewish state's capital. Erdogan described the nation as a 'terrorist state' and a 'killer of children' in remarks on Sunday as fresh clashes erupted in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem. The Muslim leader also vowed to use 'all means' to reverse Trump's decision, which was announced earlier this week. He said: Palestine is an innocent victim... As for Israel, it is a terrorist state, yes, terrorist! 'We will not abandon Jerusalem to the mercy of a state that kills...

    President Trump should not make any change in policy pertaining to the Jersualem’s status as the capital of Israel, a top European official warned Tuesday. “A way must be found through negotiations to resolve the status of Jerusalem as the future capital of both states so that the aspiration of both parties can be fulfilled,” Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s high representative, told reporters.
