    Palestinian Islamists want to eliminate Israel. As Palestinians riot, injure and murder Israeli civilians, it has been urged that Israelis turn the other cheek and go calmly about their business. How sweet! Sweets for the sweetAn article at The Jerusalem Post is titled Comment: Facing the ugly truth. It notes that after the murders of three Israeli teens by Palestinian heroes, Israeli vigilantes may have sought revenge by murdering a Palestinian boy. Murder, favored by Palestinians, is not and should not be the Israeli way. According to PM Netanyahu, “I would like to send my condolences to the Abu Khder family. I pledge that the perpetrators of this horrific...

    As large-scale Arab riots continue to rage in Jerusalem for the third day running on Friday, newly released video and photographic evidence shows just how destructive the violence has been. Arab mobs threw rocks, Molotov cocktails and firebombs at police starting Wednesday, after an Arab youth was found murdered; claims of Jewish "revenge" for the murder of three Israel teens sparked violence, despite the total lack of evidence for such claims. Video taken from inside an IDF vehicle traveling along the Light Rail lines in north-eastern Jerusalem shows just how extensive the damage has been, highlighting the three stations that...

    Arab rioters attacked police on the Temple Mount Friday afternoon, unimpeded by restrictions imposed on Muslim worshipers to access Judaism's holiest site due to ongoing violent riots in Jerusalem. Police have begun riot control measures on the site, according to Yediot Aharonoth, including using stun grenades to handle the unruly mob. Multiple stun grenade explosions were heard as of Friday afternoon on the Mount; tens of enraged Arabs are also rioting and attempting to break through police barriers at the Dung Gate (Sha'ar Ha'ashpot) near the Western Wall (Kotel). Earlier Friday, police announced that access to the Mount would be...

According to the news outlet, the rioters were convinced that their victim - fellow rioter 40 year-old Yousef Abu Badria - was an undercover police officer. Badria was treated for his injuries and later escorted out of...

    A riot involving around 1,000 people broke out last Saturday in Cangnan county of Wenzhou city, Zhejiang province, resulting in the hospitalization of five chengguan, China's notoriously abusive and under-regulated urban enforcement officials. The alleged cause for the riots was the five's brutally killing a civilian. According to reports, the chengguan "hit the man with a hammer until he started to vomit blood, because he was trying to take pictures of their violence towards a woman, a street vendor." This man later died while being rushed to the hospital. [....] According to eyewitness accounts, the crowd -- which was growing...

So much so that even the taboo topic of a potential Ukraine-style collapse right here in America is now being openly discussed in mainstream circles. In a recent panel discussion on Fox News the question of whether or not Ukraine rioting is the future of America came to the forefront and long-time political operative and former Presidential adviser Pat Caddell weighed in.

"You can designate (U.S. Secretary of State John) Kerry or whoever you want to come to this dialogue and I will send my foreign minister ... for this high-level meeting." At the same time, Maduro accused Obama of failing to live up to a commitment not to "interfere with Venezuelan affairs." "What you have said has not been carried out," he said. The United States and Venezuela have not had resident ambassadors since 2010, although they have maintained diplomatic missions and active embassies.

Mr Maduro also ordered the expulsion of three US diplomats this week. US President Barack Obama said the Venezuelan government should address "legitimate grievances" of the country...

    A crowd of around 400 people set fire to vehicles and clashed with police in the Indian district of Singapore late on Sunday after a man was hit and killed by a bus, the first major riot in the city-state for more than 40 years. Police said they had arrested 27 suspects after the riot, which started after a private bus hit and killed a 33-year-old Indian national in the Little India area. The riot is likely to fuel concerns over discontent among low-paid foreign workers. Last year, Singapore saw its biggest outbreak of labour unrest in years when around...

Most of the thugs who have been twitting and mouthing the hate, predictions, threats, etc., during the last two weeks are dependent upon the entititlements of the gubmint. That includes directions and orders. Since the gubmint has only said they are investigating the events about this incident, the thugs do not know what to do. Until Zero, or Sharpton, Jackson, or NAACP tells them to do something they are lost. On a more grim note, why no investigation into the 11,000 murders that have...

Handcuffed, taken in and interrogated, Zimmerman told police Trayvon had been acting suspiciously that dark and rainy night, that he had followed Trayvon, been knocked down and battered on the ground, and, fearing for his life, pulled a concealed handgun and shot him. Sanford police and prosecutors concluded that Zimmerman acted in self-defense and had not committed a provable felony. They let him go. A racial firestorm followed. "Blacks are under attack," railed Jesse Jackson. "Killing us is big business." Arriving in Sanford,...

    Pointing out that the last major race riot in the U.S. occurred 21 years ago in Los Angeles, Marc W. Polite writes at Time magazine that early calls for calm before a verdict is rendered in George Zimmerman's second-degree-murder trial run "counter to recent history, and may be akin to racial fear mongering." As the trial of George Zimmerman winds down, the Orlando police are reportedly bracing for possible riots in the event that the defendant walks. The Broward County Sheriff's Office release two public service announcements urging people to "raise their voice, not their hands" if they are unhappy...

    The Root's Grapevine Blog ^ | July 12, 2013 | Tracy Clayton
    With the George Zimmerman case winding down, another funny hashtag addresses the widespread fear of blacks rioting. There's lots of buzz and fear out there about black people rioting in the streets if a verdict other than "guilty" is handed down in the George Zimmerman case. As the trial winds down, there's no shortage of fearmongering in the media, from radio and TV to print and online. But black folks aren't the only ones with the capacity to channel hot emotions through destructive means. No one seems to remember the Red Summer race riots of 1919, an entire season of...

    The Fayetteville Observer ^ | July 12, 2013 | Bill Kirby
    After all of the evidence, six women in a Florida courtroom will decide if a Community Watch volunteer went too far in taking the life of a teenager walking through a neighborhood on a rainy evening. It happened there. It could happen here. "I really encourage neighborhoods to get involved and report suspicious activities," says Harold Medlock, the Fayetteville police chief. "But that is where it needs to stop." Be vigilant, he says, but do not become a vigilante, else you may become another George Zimmerman, 29, whose confrontation with Trayvon Martin left the 17-year-old with a bullet through the...

    The Miami-Dade Police Department is partnering with local pastors in anticipation of the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. From the pulpit of the Peaceful Zion Missionary Baptist Church, Miami-Dade Police Director JD Patterson preached peace Thursday evening. “Riots are not acceptable and riots are not expected,” Patterson said. MDPD’s motto for the outcome of the case is “Be vocal, not violent.” “We don’t have anything to give us any indication otherwise, so we expect a peaceful event as a result of the verdict,” Patterson told CBS 4′s Lauren Pastrana. In the month following the death of Trayvon Martin, South...

    WND ^ | July 11, 2013 | Colin Flaherty
    Questions raised about attacks that already are happening Al [Sharpton] and Jesse [Jackson] may worry that the acquittal of George Zimmerman will usher in a new era of white-on-black violence in America. After all, the local CBS affiliate is reporting that police officers already are training for violence. “There has been some talk among the officers that we believe that this training has to do with the fact that there might be some type of civil unrest, but we are hoping that that doesn’t happen,” said Javier Ortiz with the Fraternal Order of Police. The affiliate also said in Broward...

    Mediaite ^ | July 10, 2013 | Noah Rothman
    Imagine the pleasant surprise I encountered after reading the headline “just in case George Zimmerman walks free…” adorning the top of a post composed by hip hop mogul and GlobalGrind.com founder Russell Simmons. It was my hope that Simmons, a respected voice in the black community, would spell out for an attentive audience why pundits preparing their audiences for riots in the wake of a possible acquittal were wrong. Instead, Simmons identified a variety of “victories” that resulted from the killing of Trayvon Martin. He cited setbacks for the National Rifle Association and state-level “Stand Your Ground” laws which he...

    Freedom Outpost ^ | July 11, 2013 | Tim Brown
    I don’t normally write a complete opinionated commentary on things here at Freedom Outpost, but I really think there are probably some people out there, like myself, that think someone in authority, preferably Florida Governor Rick Scott, should step up and say what needs to be said in the matter involving the George Zimmerman trial. So here goes. I believe the Zimmerman trial should have never come on the national stage. Barack Obama simply used an occasion to stir up the black community. It’s part of the Alinsky tactics. However, from all the evidence we’ve seen and the railroading of...
  • Young Black Men, and The Power of Flash Mobs!!

    Thy Black Man ^ | June 13, 2013 | Phillip Jackson
    We cannot police hopelessness and despair! There are those who are angered and surprised by the violence of urban “Flash Mobs” (quickly forming groups of young people using technology to organize), especially crowds of young Black men, descending on mostly White, affluent downtown American cities. However, if we analyze this phenomenon, it is not so surprising. In fact, it is highly predictable. While there is no justification for young Black men to rob and beat people of any race, the activities of flash mobs are easily understandable in the context of recent social history and current economic conditions. Most of...
