    Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman addressed Gaza residents via the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Major General Kamil Abu Rokun's Facebook page via the Al Monaseq website. "I distinguish between Hamas leadership and the ordinary residents of Gaza," Liberman wrote. "Therefore, I decided to open the Kerem Shalom crossing and extend the fishing area back to 9 miles, as a clear message to Gaza's residents: Quiet pays off and violence doesn't pay off. The residents of Gaza have something to gain when Israeli citizens enjoy quiet and security, and something to lose when the peace is disturbed. "The people...

    CNN reporter Jennifer Hansler attacked President Trump today for tweeting about an apparent terror attack in London while the investigation was still underway. However, CNN itself was reporting the incident as a terrorist attack before Trump tweeted. Further, UK authorities had indeed already announced that they were treating the incident as a terror attack. Wrote Hansler: In addition to declaring the incident a "terrorist attack" before officials in London, Trump said the perpetrators are "animals." Remarkably, Hansler's article acknowledges that the suspect had been arrested on suspicion of terrorist offenses. In her very first sentence, Hansler also links to another...

    A journalist was assaulted by a soon-to-be congresswoman while asking her questions at a political rally for U.S. Congressional candidate Ilhan Omar in Minnesota on Saturday. Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian Muslim who won her primary in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District on Tuesday, forcefully grabbed Jewish journalist Laura Loomer and stole her phone when Loomer approached her to ask questions at the rally. In the Middle East, violence against Jews may be tolerable. In America, where Tlaib – running unopposed after her primary win – and is set to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives, it is not. In fact,...

    The Taliban are on the verge of dramatically expanding their control over southern and eastern Afghanistan in a surprise offensive that has caught Afghan and U.S. forces off guard and thrown a vexing new wrench into the Trump administration’s strategy for ending the nearly 17-year-old war there. The Afghan Defense Ministry said Monday a Taliban assault on the city of Ghanzi — a key provincial capital linking other areas under the Islamic militant group’s control just 75 miles southeast of Kabul — has killed roughly 100 Afghan security forces and some 20 civilians over the past three days. While the...

    THE Westminster terror suspect is believed to have travelled from his home in the Midlands before ploughing the car he bought two months ago into cyclists and pedestrians. Armed cops arrested the man, aged in his 20s, after three people were left injured following the suspected terror attack outside Parliament this morning. Chilling footage showed the Ford Fiesta career through Westminster before mowing down pedestrians and smashing into a barrier during a "terror" rampage. Dramatic videos show the vehicle hurtling across lanes outside the Houses of Parliament before it knocked several cyclists off their bikes. The handcuffed driver is believed...

    A New Mexico state judge ruled Monday that five alleged Muslim extremists accused of training children to conduct school shootings do not have to remain in jail while they await trial for child abuse. Judge Sarah Backus released the five defendants, Siraj Wahhaj, Hujrah Wahhaj, Subhannah Wahhaj, Jany Leveille, and Lucas Morten, on a $20,000 "signature bond," according to the Albuquerque Journal. That means that the defendants will not have to pay money unless they violate the conditions of their release. Backus said that New Mexico state prosecutors were unable to show that the five defendants should have their bail...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday said that Turkey would boycott electronic products from the United States. "We will boycott America's electronic products.

He added, "We can do two things; one in economy, the other in politics. We have taken measures that economy needs and we will keep doing it. "What is more important, I think, is keeping our political stance strong." The rift between the US...

    Training camp for child terrorists has chilling connection to top Democratic Party operative. Siraj Ibn Wahhaj Jr., 40, of Clayton County, Georgia, was arrested along with his two sisters and two other adults last Friday in New Mexico on charges of felony child abuse for holding 11 starving children in an underground trailer hidden from view in a compound described as "overflowing" with weapons and ammunition. But there is more to this story that is not appearing in the nightly news accounts we've all been following. Nobody is talking about Wahhaj's well-connected father, Siraj Wahhaj Sr., a radical Brooklyn imam...

The US economy is the world’s largest America’s economy is bigger than the combined economies of the rest of the G7.

According to the official spokesperson for the SDF, their troops managed to capture the entire desert of eastern Deir Ezzor and secure the Al-Hasakah provincial border that weekend.
