    Former President Donald Trump privately promised donors he would adopt a hard-line stance against pro-Palestinian student demonstrators after encouraging Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to end his war against Hamas. “One thing I do is, any student that protests, I throw them out of the country. You know, there are a lot of foreign students. As soon as they hear that, they’re going to behave,” Trump said during a May 14 roundtable event in New York, according to the Washington Post. Trump described the demonstrators as being part of a “radical revolution” and praised the New York Police Department for...

    An Egyptian soldier was killed in a clash with Israeli soldiers near the Rafah Border Crossing in the southern Gaza Strip on Monday, the countries’ militaries said, in an incident that threatened the already strained ties between the nations. The circumstances of the cross-border shooting were not immediately clear, and it was unknown which side opened fire first. There were no casualties among Israeli forces. The Israel Defense Forces described the incident as “a shooting incident” on the border. “There was a shooting incident on the Egyptian border; the [incident] is under investigation, [and] dialogue is taking place with the...

  • CNN’s, NYT’s Sanger: Netanyahu ‘Probably Right’ About Needing Rafah Operation to Destroy Hamas

    On Monday’s “CNN News Central,” New York Times White House and National Security Correspondent, author, and CNN Political and National Security Analyst David Sanger stated that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is likely correct that the Rafah operation that the International Criminal Court (ICC) has ordered Israel to stop is “central to wiping out Hamas” and he thinks that the ICC is correct that the collateral damage from the operation isn’t worth the number of terrorists that Israel would kill. Sanger said, “[I]f in fact, the Israelis did what they said they did, which was kill two terrorists who were...
  • Gaza war: Israeli attack on Rafah tent camp kills 45, prompts global outcry, as leaders urge UN court ruling be followed

    05/27/2024 2:58:24 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 56 replies
    An Israeli air strike killed at least 45 people in a tent camp in the Gaza city of Rafah, doctors said, drawing condemnation from European leaders on Monday, who urged implementation of a World Court ruling to halt Israel’s offensive. French President Emmanuel Macron voiced his outrage on Monday over the Israeli strikes and demanded an “immediate ceasefire”. “These operations must stop. There are no safe areas in Rafah for Palestinian civilians,” Macron said on X in English. I call for full respect for international law and an immediate ceasefire.” Israel has kept up attacks on Rafah despite a ruling...
  • Biden’s America: ‘Massive Immigration Wave’ Strains Public Schools

    The “massive immigration wave” on President Joe Biden’s watch is straining public schools across the United States, the Wall Street Journal details. Since 2021, the Journal reports, “as many as one million children … have arrived with their families or on their own” to the United States, most through the nation’s porous southern border where nearly eight million migrants total have been encountered thus far under Biden. As a result, public schools where migrant children are resettling have been hit with financial and staffing burdens they have not experienced before. Specifically, the Journal chronicles the school district of Stoughton, Massachusetts,...
  • Muslim students in Italian high school exempt from studying Dante's 'Divine Comedy' due to depictions of Mohammed in hell

    A secondary school in Treviso, Italy, has come under fire after it was revealed that Muslim students were exempted from studying Dante Alighieri's "The Divine Comedy" due to the poem's depiction of the Prophet Muhammad in Hell. The epic poem, spanning Inferno, Purgatoria, and Paradiso, shows the fate of many non-Christians, per the immagination of the legendary Italian poet. Ancient poets Virgil, Aristotle, and other pagans are depicted as existing in Limbo due to their lack of Christianity. According to a report by The Telegraph, the school allowed two Muslim students, aged around 14, to skip classes during the study...
  • When killers like Putin and Xi hint at nuclear annihilation, take heed

    New York Post ^ | May 27, 2024, 10:14 a.m. ET | Victor Davis Hanson
    After a recent summit between new partners China and Russia, General Secretary Xi Jinping and Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin issued an odd one-sentence communique: “There can be no winners in a nuclear war and it should never be fought.”No one would disagree, even though several officials of both hypocritical governments have previously threatened their neighbors with nuclear attacks.But still, why did the two feel the need to issue such a terse statement — and why now?Rarely has the global rhetoric of mass annihilation reached such a crescendo as the present, as existential wars rage in Ukraine and Gaza.In particular,...
  • Piers Morgan joins cease-fire calls, urging Israel’s Netanyahu to ‘stop this now’

    Television host Piers Morgan backed a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war Monday morning, saying in a string of social media posts that a recent Israeli strike in a Rafah “safe zone” that killed more than 40 people was too far. “The scenes from Rafah overnight are horrific,” Morgan wrote on the social platform X. “I’ve defended Israel’s right to defend itself after Oct 7, but slaughtering so many innocent people as they cower in a refugee camp is indefensible.”

    We’ve been saying it for months. For those paying attention to the southern border crisis, this isn’t going to come as a shock: non-citizens are trying to infiltrate US military bases on the regular. The Navy is seeing unauthorized individuals trying to sneak onto Naval bases two to three times every week. Admiral Daryl Caudle went on Fox News to discuss this glaring national security issue: CLICK ABOVE ARTICLE LINK FOR THE VIDEO Fox reported last week about a bizarre shooting near Fort Liberty, formerly known as Fort Bragg, where two Chechens were arrested near the residence of a US...
  • Study: The Amount of Copper Needed for EVs Is ‘Impossible for Mining Companies to Produce’

    A recent study from the University of Michigan has shed light on a critical challenge facing the global transition to electric vehicles: the inability of copper mining to keep pace with the growing demand. Engineering & Technology reports that copper, a crucial component in electricity generation, distribution, and storage, is fundamental to the successful implementation of policies aimed at promoting the adoption of EVs. However, a recent study from the University of Michigan, titled “Copper mining and vehicle electrification,” has revealed that the current rate of copper production is insufficient to meet the projected demand for the metal in the...
  • Alan Dershowitz compares anti-Israel campus protests by ‘Hitler Youth’ to Nazi Germany: ‘They are our future leaders’

    Former Harvard University professor Alan Dershowitz likened the antisemitism and anti-Israel protests on college campuses to the early days of Nazi Germany in the 1930s — and he’s worried that these “Hitler Youth” students could become America’s future leaders. “This is much like what happened in Germany in the early 1930s, when Nazi students blocked Jews from entering universities. This is a lot like the lead up to what happened in the 1940s,” Dershowitz said Sunday on the 77 WABC’s “Cats Roundtable” radio show.

    France’s globalist President Emmanuel Macron is making a state visit to Germany, the first such for 24 years, and kicked off his visit by warning against nations acting in their own interest. France and Germany, both led by globalist-left governments and both facing a damaging vote in less than two weeks as the European Parliament is re-elected continent-wide, put on a united front as Macron arrived in Berlin for the first state visit in a near-quarter century. The last French leader to make a full state visit to Germany was Jacques Chirac in 2000.

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) – Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda secured a second five-year term as Lithuanian president in a landslide victory over Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte. Preliminary figures by the Lithuania´s Central Electoral Commission showed that Nauseda won 74.5% of the votes and Simonyte 24.1%. The 60-year-old Nauseda is a moderate conservative and has been a strong backer of Ukraine, a position shared across most of the political spectrum. During his time in office, Lithuania has also given refuge to many who have fled an authoritarian crackdown in neighboring Belarus and increased repression in Russia.

    Palestinian sources claimed that 50 people had been killed — including civilians — as Israel launched an airstrike Sunday night in Rafah that targeted several major Hamas commanders. The IDF issued a statement describing the airstrike: Earlier this evening, an IAF aircraft, in an IDF and ISA intelligence-based strike, eliminated the terrorist Yassin Rabia, the Commander of Hamas’ leadership in Judea and Samaria, as well as Khaled Nagar, a senior official in Hamas’ Judea and Samaria wing.

    civil.ge ^ | 4/11/2024 | Ted Jonas
    Who is Your Enemy? One of the most fundamental differences between the US Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) and the proposed Georgian foreign agents law is the historical context in which the two laws originated, and who they were directed against. The US Congress adopted FARA in 1938 specifically to target lobbying and consulting firms acting on behalf of the Nazi German government. Concern about Soviet Communist agents also motivated the law. Of course, by 1938, the United States under Franklin D. Roosevelt was already well aware that Nazi Germany presented a direct military and security threat to the country....

    BERLIN—The Biden administration is pressing European allies to back off plans to rebuke Iran for advances in its nuclear program as it seeks to keep tensions with Tehran from escalating before the autumn’s U.S. presidential election, according to diplomats involved in discussions. The U.S. is arguing against an effort by Britain and France to censure Iran at the International Atomic Energy Agency’s member state board in early June, the diplomats said. The U.S. has pressed a number of other countries to abstain in a censure vote, saying that is what Washington will do, they said. U.S. officials deny lobbying against...

    A Georgian parliament committee on Monday, May 27, rejected the president’s veto of the "foreign agents" legislation that has sparked massive protests for weeks. The move by the parliament’s judiciary committee sets up the possibility of a vote of the full legislature on Tuesday to override President Salome Zourabichvili’s veto of the measure, which she and other critics say will restrict media freedom and obstruct Georgia’s chances of joining the European Union.

    Rafah isn’t just the last stand for Hamas, but for an entire foreign policy establishment. The desperate effort to keep Israeli soldiers from going into the last Gaza stronghold of the Islamic terrorist organization is about more than the sum of the geopolitical parts. After nation building failed in Afghanistan and Iraq, and everywhere else it’s been tried, the radioactive ‘Palestinian’ nation building experiment from over 30 years ago is its last hope. Long before George W. Bush tackled nation building after 9/11, his father began the era of turning Muslim terrorist groups into countries with the project to give...
