  • France 24 Journalists Suspended For Praising Hitler and Hamas, Following CAMERA Report

    Camera ^ | Mar 12, 2023
    CAMERA’s exposé, which can be read here in full, demonstrates that the four journalists failed to live up to France 24’s charter of ethics. In numerous social media posts, the journalists can be seen praising Hitler, minimizing the Holocaust, and glorifying Hamas-affiliated terrorists who murdered and maimed scores of Jewish civilians. “Professional journalists are expected to hold up basic standards of objectivity, which obviously includes not cheerleading for Hitler and Hamas-inspired terrorism,” said Andrea Levin, CAMERA executive director. “We commend France 24 for promptly investigating this serious situation, and we hope that the news outlet cuts ties with these apologists...

    At an ancient temple in southern Egypt, archaeologists have uncovered a figure that is reminiscent of a sphinx, as well as the remnants of a shrine. The Hathor Temple is one of the best preserved ancient locations in Egypt, and the recently unearthed artifacts are shedding fresh light on the extensive history of the surrounding area. Smiley Face and Two Dimples The limestone sphinx features a “smiley face and two dimples” and is believed to represent the Roman Emperor Claudius. It is significantly smaller than the famous Sphinx located in the Pyramids of Giza, which stands at a towering height...

    Scientists uncovered a hidden nine-meter long corridor near the main entrance to the Great Pyramid of Giza, officials said Thursday. The discovery was made as part of the Scan Pyramid project, which has been using non-invasive technology to study the structure since 2015, Reuters reported. Researchers used a mixture of infrared thermography, 3D simulations and endoscopes to explore inside of the structure, which is assumed to be 4,500-years-old (though the age of the Great Pyramid, and all others, is hotly contested). Mostafa Waziri, who heads Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities, said the corridor was presumably created to help redistribute the...

    Thanks to cosmic rays, secrets of the last remaining Wonder of the Ancient World are being revealed. The Great Pyramid of Giza, the largest of Egypt's famous landmarks, has stood tall for around 4,500 years. But the 2 million blocks that make up the tomb and fortress have not been impenetrable. Looters robbed the structure of its ancient treasures thousands of years ago and scientists have probed its interiors either by studying its corridors or with more advanced measuring techniques like thermal scanners. The structure still holds many secrets, but since 2015 an international team of scientists, the ScanPyramids team,...

    Actor and comedian Kevin Hart just had his show in Cairo canceled because of a remark he made about the Egyptian pharaohs being black. That comment was a joke he made while on his “Reality Check” tour. Speaking about the pharaohs and teaching kids black history, Hart said: “We must teach our children the true history of Black Africans when they were kings in Egypt and not just the era of slavery that is cemented by education in America. Do you remember the time when we were kings?” The Cairo stop on his tour was then promptly canceled. “It is...

    It would be interesting to see a “moderate Muslim” spokesman in the West, one of the legion who hoodwink conservatives by claiming that Islam, rightly understood, is peaceful and benign, discuss or debate these assertions with Islam Behery, or try to refute what he says here. Instead, they will ignore it. Now, why is that? “Egyptian Researcher Islam Behery: Mainstream Islamic Scholarship Is Radical, Leads To Terrorism – It Seeks To Wage Jihad, Spread Islam,” MEMRI, January 29, 2023: Egyptian researcher Islam Behery said in a January 29, 2023 interview on Sky News Arabia (UAE) that like other fields...

    A gun battle broke out in the Palestinian Authority-administered city of Shechem (Nablus) in Samaria Wednesday morning, after Israeli forces surrounded a building where a wanted terrorist was hiding. IDF soldiers, Border Police officers, and members of the elite Yamam special forces unit took part in the operation in the Kasbah of Shechem. Terrorists opened fire on the Israeli forces, who responded in kind. Nine terrorists were killed in the gun battle, including two who were involved in the murder of Staff Sergeant Ido Baruch. The 21-year-old soldier was shot and killed by terrorists last year near the town of...

    Archaeologists have long known about the Great Revolt, a battle between the ancient Egyptians and the Ptolemaic Kingdom that lasted from 207 B.C. to 184 B.C., because it is mentioned on the Rosetta Stone and in other historical texts. But now, archaeologists have finally discovered the exact location of one of the revolt's battles.In 2009, archaeologists began excavating a site known as Tell el-Timai, where an ancient Greco-Roman industrial city called Thmouis was located on the Nile Delta of northern Egypt. The excavations were part of the Tell Timai Archaeological Project, an ongoing program by the University of Hawaii to...

    The UN Security Council on Monday published a statement expressing its "dismay" over Jewish settlement activity in Judea and Samaria during a briefing on the situation in the Middle East. The statement, which received the support of all 15 members of the Security Council, including the US, reads: “The Security Council reiterates that continuing Israeli settlement activities are dangerously imperiling the viability of the two-state solution.” The statement is non-binding, unlike a resolution which was proposed last week, which would have demanded that Israel "immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory." That resolution was shelved...

Duchovny learned about his family’s migration from their place of birth, Berdichev in the Russian empire, to Palestine (then under Ottoman rule), thence to Egypt. They ended up taking a boat from Greece to the US, where Moshe acquired American...
  • Islamic Justice Prevails: Stripped Naked and Paraded in Egypt, Christian Grandmother Is Now the Guilty One

    [Image] No justice for Soad Thabet Gatestone Institute Islamic “justice” -- which usually finds Muslims in the right, and non-Muslims in the wrong -- or rather, tribal justice, has, once again, prevailed in Egypt. Not only have the Muslim men who stripped naked and publicly abused an elderly Christian grandmother been acquitted in a court of law; now she is the one facing serious legal charges to compensate her tormentors. As the nearly seven-year-old case of Soad Thabet, now 76, comes to its disgraceful close, it is important to recall the facts. On May 20, 2016, in al-Karm village,...

    The false toe worn by a 3,000-year-old mummy has always been regarded as a simple ornament, added after death as part of burial rites. But British scientists who have studied it believe the reality is that it is the world's first working artificial body part, centuries older than anything previously found. Now they are looking for volunteers who are missing the big toe on their right foot to wear a replica and try out their theory. The original prosthetic, made out of wood and leather, is strapped to the foot of the mummified body of an Egyptian noblewoman currently on...

    An artificial big toe found on the foot of an ancient Egyptian mummy could be the world's earliest functional fake body part, UK experts believe. A Manchester University team hope to prove that the leather and wood "Cairo toe" not only looked the part but also helped its owner walk. They will test a replica in volunteers whose right big toe is missing. If true, the toe will predate the currently considered earliest practical prosthesis - a fake leg from 300BC. If we can prove it was functional then we will have pushed back prosthetic medicine by as much as...
  • Major discovery shines light on how mummies were made

    02/02/2023 5:41:01 AM PST · by FarCenter · 14 replies
    We know a lot about how mummies were embalmed, but the specific substances and mixtures and how exactly they were used have long eluded us — until now. Scientists have uncovered an ancient embalming facility in Egypt, an unprecedented discovery offering deep insight into the complicated process of how mummies were made and into Egyptian hieroglyphs. Located around 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) south of Cairo, the facility dates to around 664-525 BC and consists of an aboveground structure and several underground rooms up to 30 meters (98.4 feet) below ground. The substances found inside were sourced from as far away...

    A large liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier Grace Emilia ran aground in Egypt’s Suez Canal on Wednesday. Local media reports the shipping traffic is unaffected as the incident took place in a southern section of the canal where a second channel allows for ships to bypass the blockage. AIS data from Vesselfinder (below) showed four tugboats working to move the 293-m-long vessel. Equasis lists the 2021-built 174,000 cu m ship, which entered the canal early Wednesday morning, as owned by Japan’s NYK. The latest incident comes just three weeks after the bulker Glory bound for China carrying 66,000 mt of...

    An illustration depicting the ancient Egyptian process of embalming. (Nikola Nevenov) ********************************************************* An analysis of the residue on ceramics found in an ancient embalming workshop has given us new insights into how ancient Egyptians mummified their dead. Even more astonishingly, a team of scientists has been able to link different substances to the specific parts of the body on which they were used. This discovery is, in part, thanks to the residues themselves, which were studied using biomolecular techniques; but many of the vessels were intact, including not just the names of their contents, but instructions for their use.

    In Egypt, homosexuality is highly stigmatised, and there have long been allegations that police are hunting LGBT people online. Now BBC News has seen evidence of how the authorities are using dating and social apps to do this. All victims' names have been changed Having grown up in Egypt, I am aware of the pervasive homophobia that permeates every part of its society. But friends there tell me that the atmosphere has recently become far more brutal, and the tactics for tracking down LGBT people more sophisticated. There is no explicit law against homosexuality in Egypt, but our investigation has...

    The vice-president of the Economic Committee of the House of Representatives, Mohamed Abdel-Hamid, affirmed that joining the institution benefits the country. “We will benefit from the Bank’s financial and technical assistance in areas such as sustainable development, health, infrastructure, transportation, water, and telecommunications,” he said. The addition of Egypt will also relieve the state budget of the pressure to find dollars to meet imports because members of that bank can use their national currencies in bilateral trade, he said. Parliamentarian Ahmed El-Awadi, head of the House National Security and Defense Committee, also praised the decision: “It represents a step in...
