    Extremist? No. The Qur’an contains numerous condemnations of homosexual activity: “And [We had sent] Lot when he said to his people, ‘Do you commit such immorality as no one has preceded you with from among the worlds? Indeed, you approach men with desire, instead of women. Rather, you are a transgressing people.’…And We rained upon them a rain [of stones]. Then see how was the end of the criminals.” (Qur’an 7:80-84) Muhammad specifies the punishment for this in a hadith: “The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, ‘Whoever you find doing the action of...

Humans looking for a trip that's truly 'out of this world' can now fly in style with the I.F.O or 'Identified Flying Object', a proposed two-seater drone concept that looks like a UFO. The I.F.O is powered by eight electric rotary engines that push the saucer to an estimated top speed of 120mph (190kph) and can lift it to the average helicopter altitude.

    A mild winter followed by a spate of cold weather in Washington, made its mark on the city’s cherry blossoms, but the annual festival delighted first-time visitors on Sunday.

The cherry blossom trees currently grow in three National Park Service locations, including the Tidal Basin, Hains Point and on the Washington Monument grounds. The cold weather killed half of the blossoms on the Yoshino cherry trees just as they were reaching their peak. The National Park Service says on its website that peak bloom was...

Devin Nunes (R-CA) made headlines, when surprising everyone who was not him, just days after FBI Director Comey testified before Congress, he held a press conference to announce members of Trump’s transition team were “incidentally” surveilled and unmasked by the Obama administration. Since making the initial claims, Nunes’ story has been dynamic and difficult to track. It’s also worth noting that Nunes was part of Trump’s White House transition team. (I imagine he saw his name in these mysterious intel briefings and wigged out. But that’s purely speculation.) Now, Rep. Nunes claims he met with...

Paella has spread to every region of Spain, as well as worldwide, using almost any type of ingredient that goes well with rice....

The change is in effect online and will be in the print edition of the 2017 AP Stylebook on May 31. The new edition includes 200 new and updated entries.

    The Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare—the American Health Care Act—finally came up for a final vote in the House. First put forward by Speaker Paul Ryan in 2009, it offered few surprises to Republicans. And the effort itself was very familiar, as Republicans had voted over 60 times to repeal Obamacare since its passage eight years ago. Yet, when the time came to exercise the prerogative of the majority and finally repeal and replace President Obama’s deeply flawed social program, Republicans came up short. Over the past two weeks, moderate Republicans argued that they could not vote for...

Recycling started off as a lesson to his son, Brent Jennings, about healthy money habits. Back in 1985, the Georgia native began collecting and selling paper with his only child, then put their profits into a savings account. “The first memory I have of my Dad is of us recycling,” said Brent Jennings. “We did that until I was about 17.”

    In a forgiving gesture, a Saudi citizen waived his right to retribution from an Indonesian domestic maid who murdered his 11-month- old daughter seven years ago. Ghaleb Nasir al-Hamri al-Balawi dropped the charges at the public court before the verdict was made. "I forgave the maid for several reasons. The most important is that God orders us to forgive, and I seek his blessings and love. Furthermore, my parents taught me to forgive others and they asked that I acquit the house cleaner. Third, seeing her punished will not get me my daughter back, besides I would have ruined her...

In times when authority tries to deny all opposing views as fake news, art can fight propaganda with truth." Artist...

    As Arabs mark Mother’s Day on Tuesday, it is worth mentioning that Egypt shares a unique history with the celebration of motherhood throughout years. In fact, it is believed that an Egyptian journalist first introduced the phenomenon into the Arab world. The Arab Mother’s Day is commemorated on March 21 every year across the Gulf, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Sudan and Libya. Reports on the day’s history suggest that pioneering Egyptian journalist Ali Amin was the first to call on Arabs to assign a day in which mothers are to be “treated like queens.” “Why don’t we agree on...

    In an exclusive interview seen by millions across the United States, Dr. Phil exposed the deadly secretive, and the highly organized world of elite pedophilia — with a former child sex slave going by the name of “Kendall” describing being literally born into, and growing up in, the world of elite sexual slavery. Kendall explains that she was born to be a sex slave, as her parents intentionally had her for the trafficker she calls her “owner.” Kendall says that her parents sold her at birth to an elite pedophile ring that serviced some of the world’s power elite, describing...

    Here's a sobering little fact for you: We are more than 60 days, two Muslim bans, and one Kellyanne Conway "commercial" into the Trump administration, and we still have no idea what Ivanka Trump's job is. She is not, she says, the first lady of the United States; "there's one first lady, and Melania will be an unbelievable first lady," she told ABC News. She is not actively running her eponymous lifestyle and jewelry brands, nor is she working for the Trump Organization, having taken a "formal leave of absence" in January. Finally—and perhaps most importantly—she is not a formal...

    It's OFFICIAL. The Democratic Party chair in Nebraska has just bragged about including a Voter Registration Form in each welcome basket for newly-arrived immigrants. This is a blatant attempt to influence individuals to commit a felony, ironically setting up the very immigrants they are trying to help with a deportation-level event. This is the first time that a Democratic Party official has actually endorsed illegal voter fraud activity. The video is at the link on Conservative Review. There needs to be a major investigation into this practice.
