    The response to the ongoing attack on Israel is underway. This is the first time that Iran has fired on Israel from its own territory proper, so that's a bad progression in the direction of more direct involvement. U.S. forces in the area have reportedly shot down "dozens" of drones targeting Israel. They've also reportedly taken out missiles, as well.

    At an anti-Israel demonstration in Dearborn, Michigan, Tarek Bazzi led the crowd in chants of "death to America." When Fox reporter Hillary Vaughn asked Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich) about this the Congresswoman called the chant "a legitimate viewpoint. If my constituents feel this way it is my duty to honestly represent their views in Congress." "The whole world knows that Israel is the instigator of most of the world's problems," she added. "The October 7 attack was a justified response to these instigations. Israel has been illegally occupying Palestinian lands since 1948. Any actions taken to try to persuade the...

    As Israel has continued its bombardment of the Gaza Strip, its restrictions on journalists' access to the region have drawn scrutiny. New data released Thursday suggests Israel's tactics are fueling an "information war" with perverse incentives for hate-mongers and conspiracy theorists. The Committee to Protect Journalists' preliminary estimate counts 95 journalists and media workers who have been killed in Gaza since Hamas' Oct. 7 attack on Israel, and the vast majority of those journalists are Palestinian. At the same time, Israel's decision to prevent international journalists from entering has enraged activists and the Foreign Press Association. The Israeli Supreme Court...

    An anti-Israel protester was arrested and charged with making terroristic threats at a Bakersfield City Council meeting in California on Wednesday. During the public comment section of the meeting, protester Riddhi Patel threatened to murder council members and Republican Mayor Karen Goh for not backing a cease-fire resolution against Israel and for installing heavier security at the government building due to ongoing anti-Israel protests. Video of the meeting depicted Patel claiming she hoped oppressed minorities would guillotine city government members, declaring that even Jesus Christ would kill them, and threatening to go to their houses and murder them. The threats...

    A protester was led out of Wednesday evening’s Bakersfield City Council meeting after telling the council “we’ll see you at your house, we’ll murder you” during public comments. The council meeting was then delayed after the comments by Riddhi Patel, who spoke about security measures put in place for council meetings. Patel lashed out at the council for the security measures in place saying the measures were put in place as retaliation against protesters.

    U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin called his Israeli counterpart Yoav Gallant late Thursday, to reassure him Washington would defend its closest ally in the region if Tehran struck on its soil. Austin told Gallant “Israel could count on full U.S. support to defend Israel against Iranian attacks, which Tehran has publicly threatened,” a Pentagon spokesman said.

    U.S. President Joe Biden on Friday said he expected Iran to attack Israel "sooner, rather than later" and warned Tehran not to proceed. Asked by reporters about his message to Iran, Biden said simply, "Don't," and he underscored Washington's commitment to defend Israel. "We are devoted to the defense of Israel. We will support Israel. We will help defend Israel and Iran will not succeed," he said. Israel braced on Friday for an attack by Iran or its proxies as warnings grew of retaliation for an attack on Iran's embassy compound last week in Damascus that killed a senior commander...

    Former head of the Shin Bet internal security service Nadav Argaman launched a full-scale assault against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in an interview with Channel 12 that was broadcast Thursday, saying he was directly to blame for October 7, “the worst disaster since the state’s establishment,” and was leading Israel to its “doom.” “Netanyahu is not fit to be prime minister of Israel,” Argaman told the network’s Uvda investigative program.

    This is a breathtaking betrayal of Israel by Biden, who clearly cares more about his poll numbers in Michigan and Minnesota than the fate of the Jewish state. For someone who has declared himself to be a Zionist, US President Joe Biden sure has a funny way of showing it. On April 4, in a telephone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Biden reportedly harangued Israel, all but threatening to cut off military aid to the Jewish state unless it capitulated to his demands. As Reuters succinctly noted, “US President Joe Biden effectively gave Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu an...

    Attorney Hanan Alsanah, the director of the Center for Bedouin Women’s Rights at Itach-Ma’aki: Women Lawyers for Social Justice, was up early on October 7, preparing for a family picnic on her one day off from work. Then she started getting a slew of messages from local WhatsApp leadership groups not normally active on Saturdays. “At first I said, okay, it’s something small, the state is here and will do its work and will stop it,” she said. “But after one hour we realized the immensity of the attack and that the state was not there. I felt unsafe. It...
  • Hamas says it doesn't have 40 living Israeli hostages necessary for ceasefire deal

    Hamas has told international mediators it can't identify 40 living hostages who meet the requirements for a U.S.-backed ceasefire deal as American and Israeli officials increasingly fear most of the people still held captive may already be dead. The proposal for a six-week ceasefire consisted of Hamas releasing 40 hostages, including women, children, elderly men and those in poor health, in exchange for the release of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners. The terrorist group, however, told international mediators that it does not have 40 living hostages who meet that criteria. Officials familiar with negotiations told The Wall Street Journal this week...

    Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) this week pushed for an independent commission to look into the Israeli strike that killed seven aid workers with the charity World Central Kitchen (WCK) earlier this month. Pelosi said in an interview with MSNBC on Wednesday that she signed onto a letter with more than 50 other Democrats calling to withhold weapons until an independent commission can investigate the WCK strike. “The letter is simple: until you have an investigation, we should withhold,” she said. “I think it’s a very contained letter. There are other people who have different standards for what we should...

    Oh. After Chef Jose Andres of World Central Kitchen (WCK) accused Israel of 'deliberately' targeting a WCK convoy, and of 'genocide', a picture has surfaced of Hamas with WCK workers, and allegedly riding with the vehicles. Whether or not there's more to the story, we'll have to wait and see. Hi @chefjoseandres care to explain this picture? You’ve spent the week accusing Israel targeting @WCKitchen volunteers & now we know Hamas was riding with the vehicles. You also accused Israel of genocide which is an absolute lie. Now YOU can be seen hanging with Hamas. WTF??? — Sebastian Marinaio...

I think what we're talking about is the libertarian, right intellectual movement. I know that Tucker Carlson is voicing things, Candace Owens has, the CATO Institute's been very vocal. There's some people on that website who've called for breaking relations almost with Israel. But I don't think...

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of “CNN’s “AC360,” CNN Military Analyst and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Gen. Wesley Clark (Ret.) stated that “right now, the momentum is with Hamas.” Because “They know the weight of global opinion, including in the United States, is weighing in against the Israelis, against a continuation of the operation into Rafah. And they know that if they simply hang tough, continue to report casualties, get the sympathy of the world on their side, there will be increasing pressure against Israel. And this has been really the aim of their war plan since October 7.” Clark also...

    Tucker Carlson invited Palestinian Christian Rev. Dr. Munther Isaac to discuss the situation in Gaza and attacked Christians who support Israel's war in Gaza, independent US news website Mediaite reported on Wednesday. On Wednesday, Tucker Carlson engaged in a discussion with Isaac, shedding light on the complexities of Christian support for Israel's actions in Gaza. Carlson's critique of Christian leaders in the United States was blunt, arguing that they are "not being more critical of the destruction in Gaza." He backed his views on the ongoing war and the US Christian leader's response, remarking: "If you wake up in the...

And while Israel’s campaign against the Hamas perpetrators of the horrific massacres, rapes and kidnappings is an important part of the story, it is not the only one. From the men who grabbed their guns and drove south in the hours after the attack began to the warehouses quickly set up to provide food and clothing for the hundreds of thousands of Israelis who were forced to leave their homes after the attacks from Gaza, inside Israel, the...

    Targeted by anti-Israel activists, the dean of Berkeley's law school requested on Wednesday that security guards be stationed outside his home for protection after agitators disrupted a private dinner party he and his wife were hosting. Erwin Chemerinsky, the law school dean, and his wife, Professor Catherine Fisk, were hosting a dinner for a group of graduating law students on Tuesday evening, when a woman wearing a hijab stood up, and with a microphone in hand, began accusing the law school of complicity in genocide
