Fanya and Mira the walruses did not wake up from anaesthesia after undergoing an operation to remove their tusks earlier this week, the complex said. “After an operation to remove tusks the animals did not emerge from anaesthesia. The dose was standard. The operation was performed by one of the best vets in the world,” spokeswoman Elena Molchanova told a local news site.

    The Russian aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov is getting ready for a voyage to the Syrian coast in the Mediterranean. The goal of the deployment is to check the combat capabilities of the ship and its strike group, including Russia's state-of-the-art KA-52K Katran helicopters.

    MOSCOW --- The prototype of the newest Mi-28NM (M stands for upgraded, Modernizirovanny) combat helicopter has been delivered to the Lyubertsy-based flight-test center of the Moscow Helicopter Plant named after M. Mil (a subsidiary of Russian Helicopters holding), according to open sources. Hence, the flight trials of the rotor-wing aircraft will likely take place in the Moscow Region. The Rostov Helicopter Plant (Rostvertol, a subsidiary of Russian Helicopters holding) produced the demonstrator in 2015. Mi-28NM is known to be equipped with new above rotor-based N025 radar and advanced rotor blades to increase the helicopter’s maximum flight speed. The chin-mounted weapon...

    After years languishing behind competitors at home and abroad, Russia's iconic MiG aircraft manufacturer has been thrown a lifeline. The company is now building 46 brand-new MiG-29M fighter jets in a contract reported to be worth at least $2 billion dollars. Yet despite the hints which have appeared in the Russian press over the past year, official confirmation remains elusive. The jets are being built for an unspecified buyer. Only a shareholder’s report released by a MiG component supplier has confirmed that the order is real. The document outlines a deal for 92 engines used in the MiG-29. With two...

Many more women and girls are wearing long coats and scarves in the summer heat, the Turkish version of the burqah. Early Turkish election results now show a forty percent vote for the Islamist AKP, five percent more than last time.

A day after a deadly ambush of police in Louisiana, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus welcomed delegates to the convention hall with a brief acknowledgement of the “troubling times” swirling outside.

Looking at the Middle East, U.S. President Barack Obama might wish he could get rid of his regional allies anyway.

    Look what's happening now without it When I ran for president, I summed up my thinking on foreign policy with the term “peace through strength with clarity.” To help demonstrate what this meant, we created a map that clearly labeled certain nations. Britain was a friend. Russia was a rival. Various nations in the Middle East represented threats. As you might expect, the political media mocked this as simple-minded, which I still believe is hilariously ironic coming from some of the most simple-minded people you will ever have the misfortune of meeting. But what’s happening now helps to demonstrate why...

Obama is calling for enhanced intelligence and military cooperation with Russia against the Islamic State and other extremist groups in the nation. Obama is also calling for President Bashar al-Assad and the Russians to honor a UN brokered ceasefire with U.S.-supported rebel groups which includes Assad’s removal from power. Secretary of State John Kerry met with Russia's top diplomat to discuss Syria's civil war and Assad's future. Apparently desperate for a Nobel Peace Prize, Kerry is trying...

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was to present the new ideas to Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Kremlin on Thursday. The eight-page proposal, a copy of which The Washington Post published, shows the U.S. offering intelligence and targeting sharing, and...

    Russia is the latest country to claim that it has developed a new radar system that can detect stealth warplanes. But the Sunflower low-frequency over-the-horizon radar likely suffers all the same drawbacks that have plagued previous generations of similar sensors. Namely, Sunflower might be able to detect a low-observable airplane. But it probably can’t do so with great fidelity — nor generate a useful targeting track for a missile to follow. Despite Russia’s claim, stealth aircraft are no less difficult to find, target and destroy now than they were before the Sunflower’s introduction. Russian media touted the Sunflower radar in a series...

    She’s a walking parody of an unhinged leftist ‘reporter.’...But even among leftist hacks, Amanpour is a special case: It’s almost as if she’s trying to mock herself — a Trump-is-a-Clinton-plant conspiracy theory, if you will, but in the mainstream media. She referred to devout Christianity as “totalitarian” in her August 23, 2007, CNN profile “Christian Warriors.” But in 2008, she fawned over the “progress” achieved by Fidel Castro, and in 2013 she wished Zimbawean dictator Robert Mugabe a happy birthday. If a higher-profile (read: important) person had such a rich historical cache of commentary, they would have already been driven...

    Secretary of State John Kerry is planning to attend the preliminary foreign ministers' meeting that France is convening in advance of a French-sponsored Middle East peace conference, Haaretz reported Monday. The Palestine Liberation Organization's Saeb Erekat told the newspaper that Kerry has told Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas that he plans to attend the summit, to take place in Paris on May 30. At this stage, however, State Department officials will not confirm that Kerry will be attending the foreign ministers' meeting, and Washington has been reluctant to express support for the French initiative. For his part, Erekat told Haaretz...

    France will recognize a Palestinian state if its efforts in coming weeks to try to break the deadlock between Israelis and Palestinians fail, Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Friday. "France will engage in the coming weeks in the preparation of an international conference bringing together the parties and their main partners, American, European, Arab, notably to preserve and make happen the solution of two states," he said. Fabius said that as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, France had a responsibility to try to keep up efforts to find a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians.
  • Paris calls public school map showing Israel as ‘Palestine’ a ‘production error’

    Responding to parents who complained about the distribution at public schools of a map which labeled Israel as “Palestine,” the City of Paris said it was the result of “a simple production error.” The city’s media department gave the explanation in a statement it published Friday about the distribution earlier this year to elementary school pupils of a calendar that contains a map of Europe and parts of the Middle East. The map, which ends north of central Israel and the West Bank, designates the territory of Israel included in it as “Palestine,” alongside Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Turkey. In...

    Official PA daily: Israel was behind the terror attacks in France because Israel "was the only one to benefit from them" Israeli Intelligence Service Mossad planned the attacks because Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu wanted - to encourage Jewish immigration from Europe - to take "revenge on European governments... because of their positions on the Palestinian cause" Poll: 84.4% of Palestinians think "Israel behind the murder of French [citizens]"   Nan Jacques Zilberdik    Following the terror attacks against the Charlie Hebdo magazine and a Jewish store in which Muslim terrorists killed 17 people in France earlier this month, columnists writing...

    In 2014, the year before the murder rampages at the Charlie Hebdo offices and the kosher supermarket in Paris, about seven thousand French Jews (out of a community of about half a million) emigrated to Israel.With Muslim and other antisemitic harassment and violence constantly intensifying in France, that was twice the number of the previous year, and a record high.Even before this monthÂ’s terror attacks, a higher number of French Jewish immigrants to Israel was expected for 2015. Now, after the attacks, a higher number yet is expected, possibly fifteen thousand. There is even talk of the Jews leaving...

    By Joel Leyden Israel News AgencyJerusalem, Israel — January 12, 2015 … As one who has lived in Israel for over 25 years, served in a combat unit in the Israel Defense Forces and has consulted the Israeli government at varying levels, I have never been so proud of an Israeli leader. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu read with sadness of the murders of the editorial staff of Charlie Hebdo in Paris by members of Islamic terror groups. Netanyahu’s eyes swelled with tears as he heard that a Jewish market had been attacked and Jewish hostages were being shot dead...

    Former President Jimmy Carter said the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was among the factors that led to the deadly attacks last week in Paris. Carter made the assertion Monday night during an appearance on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart. “Well, one of the origins for it is the Palestinian problem. And this aggravates people who are affiliated in any way with the Arab people who live in the West Bank and Gaza, what they are doing now — what’s being done to them. So I think that’s part of it,” Carter told Stewart. He called the training in the...

    In a stunningly dishonest, conspiracy-laden, and anti-Semitic article, the International Business Times accused Israel and the “Jewish people” for the horrific terrorist attack carried out in Paris yesterday. Anyone with a basic grasp of the most simple of facts is aware that the attack was carried out by Islamic extremists who were upset over Charlie Hebdo’s drawings of Muhammad. The IBT threw logic and common sense to the wind and blamed Israel in an article titled, “Charlie Hebdo Attack and Mossad Link: Is Israel Venting Its Fury For France’s Recognition of Palestine State?” The first sentence in the article says...

    In an interview on the i24news network, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu referred Sunday to the anticipated vote in the French parliament on recognizing a Palestinian state: “Of course I'm worried about this because what they're voting on is Palestine without peace," he said. "That's what the Palestinians want. They want to have a state to continue, not to end the war with Israel, but to continue the war from improved boundaries. That's all they're saying. Look at what has happened. Every time we gave territory to the Palestinians, for example in Gaza, Iran walked in with its Palestinian proxies, fired...

    While frightened little school children in Israel hide under their desks during Palestinian rocket attacks, street mobs in the rest of the world are chanting “Israel must die, long live Palestine” over and over again in raucous voices growing louder. With Israel under attack, Palestinian protesters in Paris, London and in North American cities like Chicago and Calgary took to the streets in clockwork fashion. The protesters never have to duck from physical harm. They count on total impunity in the democratic settings where they conduct their activism.
