    On September 3, 2015, not two months after the July 14 announcement of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action at Vienna and its celebration at the White House and in Europe, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei dropped a bombshell. In a speech to the Iranian Assembly of Experts, he backtracked from the agreement, demanding a new concession: that the sanctions be "lifted," not merely "suspended."[1] If that term is not changed, said Khamenei, there is no agreement. If the West only "suspends" the sanctions, he added, Iran will merely "suspend" its obligations. Giving further credence to his threat, he announced...

    NEW YORK (AP) - A mentally ill British man pleaded guilty Monday to U.S. charges he plotted to set up an al-Qaida training camp on a ranch in a remote part of Oregon that was likened to Afghanistan. Haroon Aswat admitted he traveled to Bly, Oregon, in 1999 at the direction of Mustafa Kamel Mustafa, a double-amputee and radical cleric based in London. His orders were to help train recruits "who wanted to participate in jihad on behalf of a terrorist organization," he said in a barely audible voice at the sentencing in federal court in Manhattan.

The announcement says HHS has contracted for the development of “four novel products to treat severe thermal burns.” The products will boost the number of treatment options in case of disaster, and they’ll also be used in “routine” burn care situations. The four treatments—one commercially available right now and three in development—“will be added to the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) or managed by vendors to help protect people...

Such sampling is usually done by the International Atomic Energy Agency’s own experts.

The arrangement was first revealed in confidential draft agreement between the sides seen last month by The...

    Each year the United States gives approximately $8 billion in mandatory payments and voluntary contributions to the United Nations and its affiliated organizations. The biggest portion of this money – about $3 billion this year – goes to the U.N.’s regular and peacekeeping budgets. If that seems like a lot, it is—far more than anyone else pays And it’s also, in some cases, bad value for money. The U.N. system for calculating member nations’ “fair share” payment toward its regular and peacekeeping budgets has increasingly shifted the burden away from the vast majority of the 193 members and onto a...

The release, to a Saudi jet on this base's air strip, left the prison camp population at 114. Now, 52 of the captives are cleared for release to special security agreements with other countries. Saudi Abdul Rahman Shalabi, 39, was repatriated less than a week after the United States sent a Moroccan home restrained inside a U.S. military cargo plane.

These members of Congress explained how Iran will ramp up its campaign of terrorism and Middle East destabilization with funds gained through the nuclear deal. They expressed “concern”—grave concern, even—over key concessions such as the curtailment of inspections on Iran’s military sites, the removal of a ban on arms sales to Iran, and the 15-year sunset clause on restrictions to Iran’s ability to enrich nuclear material. Still, as other Democrats have unceasingly reminded us, the Iran deal was...

    Democrats in the US Senate this week blocked a vote on the Iran deal for the third time. The most remarkable aspect of this US surrender to Iran is that the Iranian regime is not some hypothetical threat. It has been perpetrating acts of war against Western interests for more than three decades – including playing a key role in the 9/11 attacks on America. That’s not just my opinion. It’s the view of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. In a judgment that has received virtually no attention, federal Judge George B. Daniels...

    WASHINGTON - Democrats in the US Senate blocked a last-ditch effort by Republicans on Thursday to add new conditions before President Barack Obama can waive any sanctions under the Iran nuclear deal. After Obama's fellow Democrats in the Senate twice blocked a disapproval resolution meant to kill the nuclear agreement, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell introduced an amendment to the measure that would bar the president from lifting sanctions on Iran unless it recognized Israel's right to exist and released American prisoners. The vote was 53-45, meaning the measure failed to attract the 60 votes it would need to...

Republicans protected Democrats from even having to take several tough amendment votes during the Corker debate in April, including votes on whether any deal would have to include the return of the 4 hostages and whether Iran would have to recognize Israel's right to exist.

    Hundreds of thousands of white Europeans were captured by Barbary MUSLIM pirates and sold as slaves in North Africa and the Ottoman Empire between the 16th and 19th centuries. Tens of thousands of Black African slaves are still owned today by Arab Muslims. These slave raids were conducted largely by Arab and Berber Muslim rather than Ottoman Turkish Muslims. However, during the height of the Barbary slave trade, the Barbary states were subject to Ottoman Muslim jurisdiction and ruled by Ottoman pashas. Furthermore, many slaves captured by the Barbary corsairs were sold eastward into Ottoman territories before, during, and after...

    Outgoing Israeli ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor slammed the agency as “toothless” in addressing Middle East unrest, and denounced its institutionalized discrimination against the Jewish state, in an interview aired Friday. Hours earlier, Prosor delivered his final speech to the UN General Assembly before stepping down as Israel’s ambassador to Turtle Bay after a four year stint. “I sometimes felt like I was on the game show 1 vs. 100,” he told Channel 2, reflecting on his tenure. Prosor, a former director general of the foreign minister and ambassador to the UK, is being succeeded by hawkish Likud...

    The US marks 14 years since the September 11, 2001 attacks on Friday, in which Al Qaeda terrorists coordinated four separate attacks on US citizens and landmarks. 2,996 people were killed when two passenger planes crashed into the New York World Trade Center towers, one crashed into the Pentagon, and one crashed in a field near Shanksville, PA after passengers heroically battled the hijackers. To gain perspective on the attacks, Arutz Sheva spoke with US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro at a special memorial ceremony in Beit Zayit (outside of Jerusalem) on Thursday. “I think the agreement with Iran will...

    A top Iranian cleric says the anger in the UK toward Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shows the Tel Aviv regime has turned into a global object of hatred across the world. “The campaign of hatred for the Zionist regime, which began in Iran, has spread across the world,” said Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Movahedi Kermani in an address to worshippers at weekly Friday Prayers in the Iranian capital, Tehran. Netanyahu traveled to the UK on Wednesday for a two-day visit to discuss hosts of issues including the crisis in Syria and the July 14 nuclear agreement reached between Iran and...

    New York – – – – – – As Congress reconvenes from its summer recess their first order of business will be the most important security legislation of the 21st Century – the agreement with Iran on its nuclear program. Already the agreement has a majority of both the Senate and the House in opposition. The President is threatening to veto a Congressional resolution rejecting it. Some of the President’s supporters are now threatening a filibuster in the Senate to protect their re-election chances and the President because Congress would never directly debate or vote on the agreement. Against this...

    Senate Democrats on Thursday used a procedural device to block a vote on a resolution disapproving the Iran nuclear agreement, saving President Obama the discomfiture of having to veto a measure of opposition to a signature foreign policy initiative. “Yes!,” came an exclamation as the number of votes to prevent the disapproval motion from moving forward reached the target of 41 required by Iran deal supporters. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) punched the air with both fists in evident delight at the outcome. The final vote was 58-42, with Republicans—joined by Democratic Sens. Chuck Schumer of New York, Robert Menendez of...

    President Obama this week blasted critics of the Iran deal for supposedly “suggesting that the other person has bad motives.” He then proceeded to suggest that his opponents have bad motives. […] Remember how this all started? Early this year, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dared to accept an invitation to address a joint session of Congress. The Obama White House tried to cow Netanyahu into canceling the speech by spreading the idea that Netanyahu had “insulted” President Obama by accepting the invitation. The president even stooped so low as to use the Congressional Black Caucus to make the leap...

[…] “This is historic. This is grand. This is visionary. This is about peace,” Pelosi said at her briefing. “Some of our members are saying this is the first time since I have been here that I have been able to vote for peace rather than just against war.
