    The American couple murdered in an ISIS-claimed car attack in Tajikistan quit their office jobs last year and were in the midst of pursuing their lifelong dream of cycling around the world when they were killed. Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan, both 29 and living in Washington, DC, chronicled their adventures on a blog called “Simply Cycling” where they wrote that they’d decided to take on the globe on two wheels, “because life is short and the world is big and we want to make the most of our youth and good health before they’re gone.”

    America's founding document might be too politically incorrect for Facebook, which flagged and removed a post consisting almost entirely of text from the Declaration of Independence. The excerpt, posted by a small community newspaper in Texas, apparently violated the social media site's policies against hate speech. Since June 24, the Liberty County Vindicator of Liberty County, Texas, has been sharing daily excerpts from the declaration in the run up to July Fourth. The idea was to encourage historical literacy among the Vindicator's readers. The first nine such posts of the project went up without incident. "But part 10," writes Vindicator...

    One protester was killed and 100 were wounded Friday during a “day of rage” in the West Bank, Gaza and in East Jerusalem, as Palestinians railed against President Trump’s recognition of the ancient city as Israel’s capital, according to reports. The dead man was felled by Israeli fire in Gaza, while others were injured from tear gas inhalation and rubber bullets, Palestinian officials say. As Friday prayers ended at the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, worshippers made their way toward the Old City and chanted: “Jerusalem is ours, Jerusalem is our capital” and “We don’t need empty words, we need...

    LONDON — Theresa May has condemned U.S. President Donald Trump for retweeting Islamophobic videos about Muslims posted by a leader of the British far-right. A spokesman for the prime minister said that it was "wrong" for Trump to have broadcast the footage to his 46 million Twitter followers this morning. May's spokesman told a press briefing attended by Business Insider: "Britain first seeks to divide communities through their use of hateful narratives which peddle lies and stoke tensions. They cause anxiety to law abiding people. "British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudice of the far-right, which it is the antithesis of...

    Suburban Illinois police are asking for witnesses to speak out after an attack at a Six Flags theme park near Chicago left a family hospitalized. Three family members were attacked by a group of nine people – one adult and eight teens – Saturday night around 9 p.m. during Fright Fest, the Lake County News Sun reported. Gurnee police officials told the newspaper the attack happened “after members of the larger group apparently cut in line and were using foul language when the family exchanged words with them.” Police say the family — a 51-year-old man, a 50-year-old woman and...

    Shumaila Shah knows how to cook her husband's favorite dish the way one might say the Pledge of Allegiance. "Cook onions, tomatoes, garlic and ginger crushed together," she said, articulating something so familiar it didn't need words, English or Punjabi. "Salt, pepper, garam masala. Put meat in and add water to make a gravy. Cook until the meat is soft, not tough." How long? She thinks for a moment. "A half-hour; it depends on the meat," she said. "Then add the potatoes, because they take a shorter time to cook. We eat it with naan." The recipe for her aloo...

    A high school student who stabbed a fellow pupil in the neck with a pencil can't be expelled under her school district's weapons policy, a Commonwealth Court panel has ruled. In fact, Judge Patricia A. McCullough wrote in the state court's opinion, every Pennsylvania classroom would be empty if her court agreed with the Pittsburgh Public School District that a sharpened pencil is a prohibited weapon. The case revolves around what happened between the 10th grader and another student at the Barack Obama International Academy on May 9, 2016.

    The federal government denies it’s behind the problems faced by Roma travellers, saying it’s up to airlines to decide who boards flights to Canada.Ottawa is being accused of preventing Roma travellers from boarding Canada-bound flights and denying them the possibility of seeking asylum here. Since the end of last year, advocates and lawyers say a slew of Roma passengers from Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia — all currently visa-exempted countries — have reported being stopped from boarding flights to Canada via transit points in England, Poland, Belgium and Germany. The federal government denies that it is to blame....

    Past popes combated the errors of Muhammad. Francis praises them. As the prototypical progressive Jesuit, Pope Francis prides himself on his “ecumenism.” He oozes enthusiasm for every religion except his own. At the top of his list of favorite religions is the Church’s fiercest adversary — Islam. He often sounds more like a spokesman for CAIR than a Catholic pope. After jihadists cut off the head of a French priest in July 2016 — yelling “Allahu Akbar” over the priest’s slit throat — Pope Francis rushed to the defense of Islam. “I don’t like to talk about Islamic violence, because...

    Limiting US citizenship and the number of mosques in the U.S. are practical matters that can be done to control the threat Islam poses. Just as the right to bear arms is restrained, so should freedom of religion be restrained when it comes to Islam Freedom of religion in the United States is a complex issue. It is an issue that involves both tradition and Constitutional law. Tom Krattenmaker writes, “The freedom to believe as one chooses is crucial to the American way, and belief has little meaning if it cannot be acted upon. Even so…the right to practice religion...

    Some women in Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL)-controlled Mosul have said they are “much more afraid” of the jihadist group’s all-female “morality police,” or Khansaa Brigade, than the battle-hardened male terrorists, reports NBC News. The all-female units of the jihadist group’s “morality police,” also known as Hisbah, had been tasked with patrolling the streets of Mosul and enforcing an extreme version of Shariah law. Members of the Hisbah Khansaa Brigade favor a torture tool known as “the biter,” which refers to “metal prongs designed to clip chunks of flesh as punishment for women who violated strict ISIS’ dress codes,” NBC News learned...

    Hillary Clinton supporters continue lashing out at the protesters interrupting her rallies with the message that Bill Clinton is a rapist. During a rally in Las Vegas with the Carpenters Union, a man started shouting that Bill Clinton was a rapist, holding up a sign of the former president with the word “rape” on it. Immediately a group of male Clinton supporters chanting “Hillary! Hillary! Hillary!” tackled him to the ground, destroyed his sign and ripped his shirt, before he was escorted out of the rally. The fight was captured by a photojournalist for local TV news station KTNV.
