    Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has fired two ballistic missiles from launchers disguised as standard shipping containers that were hosted aboard one of its sea base-like vessels. This particular combination, which has not been seen to date, greatly expands the reach with which those weapons could be used to strike potential targets by surprise, especially given that shipping containers can be embarked on any vessel that has the space to accommodate them. The country's IRGC-linked Tasnim News Agency reports that two "Fateh class" ballistic missiles were recently launched from Shahid Mahdavi, which the Iranian Navy took delivery of in...

    War Cabinet minister Benny Gantz announced that Israel is preparing for an operation in the southern town of Rafah in Gaza after the civilians are evacuated from the area. His statement was made during a press briefing on Wednesday evening. Gantz, the head of the National Unity party, also claimed that unilateral international recognition of a Palestinian state, without bilateral agreements, is “a tailwind for terrorism.” “It would be a mistake to give such a tailwind to terrorism,” Gantz said. “Political arrangements must take place directly, otherwise they will not be sustainable. In any future situation, Israel will maintain its...

    Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh says the PA is still seeking unity with Hamas terror group and may hold talks with the group in Moscow on February 26. “Russia has invited all Palestinian factions who will be meeting on the 26 of this month in Moscow. We will see if Hamas is ready to come to the ground with us,” he says at the Munich Security Conference. “We are ready to engage. If Hamas is not then that’s a different story. We need Palestinian unity,” he says. He adds that Hamas needs to meet certain prerequisites. Asked about making...

    Iran-backed Houthis sunk a British ship in the Red Sea on Monday and attacked two US ships in the Gulf of Aden. The US is also investigating a US Reaper drone that crashed in Yemen on Monday. According to reports: “The United Kingdom’s Maritime Trade Operations Agency (UKMTO) reported Monday that the Houthis sunk a ship traveling in the Red Sea , south of the port city of Mukha in Yemen. It is the the first time since the start of Israel’s war on Hamas in Gaza that a crew had to abandon their ship because of the Houthis.”

    During Sunday’s broadcast of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) voiced his disapproval of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s leadership. Clyburn, a confidant of President Joe Biden, argued Netanyahu’s leadership had been bad for Israel. However, he would not go as far as to say Biden agreed with him about Netanyahu. “When it comes to Israel, should he stick with his position on Prime Minister Netanyahu or perhaps rethink that relationship?” “Face the Nation” host Robert Costa asked.

    The Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department said eight people were arrested Saturday during a 10-hour "protest and standoff" that stemmed from an Eritrean "cultural event." Clashes erupted between rival groups of Eritreans, and police confirmed that officers trying to disperse the unlawful crowds were attacked by people wielding sticks, rocks and other items. Crowds also set a tractor on fire in North Carolina's largest city, and police seized a total of two firearms over the course of several hours. Fox News Digital reached out to the department Sunday seeking the identities and more information about those eight arrested. The incident first...

    National Unity party chairman Minister Benny Gantz addressed the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations today (Sunday) and discussed the war against Hamas and criticized international attempts to impose a Palestinian state at this time. Gantz began his remarks by saying that "Our home is under attack. Today, and since October 7th - We have all come together to defend it." "October 7th was a vile display of our enemy’s inhumanity," he said. "What followed, were waves of antisemitism around the world, on the streets and campuses, leaving us with one clear takeaway." Gantz called for the formation...

    President Isaac Herzog meets with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference. In public remarks before the meeting, Blinken says the US is “doing everything possible” to return the hostages held by Hamas and stresses the Biden administration is “thinking, as we always do, about Israel’s security both today, but also for every day, for the long term.” “We’re thinking of the suffering of people caught up in the middle of conflict, including the Palestinian men, women and children in Gaza,” he says. “We’re thinking as well of the genuine opportunities that lie...

    Eliyahu Yossian is a man on a mission – waking up Israelis to the misconceptions that are endangering the survival of the Jewish State. The path to a secure future necessitates changing the mindset that led to the disaster of October 7th. The same mindset that for the past 30 years has led Israel to “manage the conflict” rather than attain clear and decisive victory over our would-be murderers – although the State is much stronger and better equipped than in her early years. “It all begins”, he explains, “with the way you perceive the world.” Eliyahu Yossian is a...

    The Cradle ^ | 02/17/2024
    Iran was able to transport $2.8 billion in oil to customers in 2023 using insurance from a US-based company, despite sanctions imposed on Iranian oil sales by the US Treasury, an investigation published by The New York Times (NYT) on Friday has found. The oil was transported aboard 27 tankers, using liability insurance obtained by the New York-based American Club. Tankers are typically required to have liability insurance to enter international ports, meaning the US Treasury could have blocked the sale of this oil by demanding the American Club revoke insurance for the tankers.NYT says the 27 tankers were able...

    Israel carried out covert attacks on two major gas pipelines inside Iran this week, two Western officials and a military strategist affiliated with Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps told The New York Times on Friday. The attacks resulted in explosions that disrupted the flow of heat and cooking gas to provinces with millions of people, the report said. “The enemy’s plan was to completely disrupt the flow of gas in winter to several main cities and provinces in our country,” Iran’s Oil Minister, Javad Owji, told Iranian media on Friday. Owji, who had previously referred to the blasts as “sabotage and...

    A monitoring group in Egypt has released evidence of construction work taking place in Rafah on the border with Gaza that may be intended to house Palestinians fleeing from the potential Israeli assault on the city. Photos and videos released by the Sinai Foundation for Human Rights (SFHR), a monitoring group, have captured workers operating heavy machinery and erecting concrete walls and security towers along the border with Gaza near the Rafah crossing. The videos, dated February 15th, don’t appear to show the Egyptian authorities installing water or other infrastructure, and satellite images published by Planet Labs on the same...

    While much of the attention in discussions about climate change often focuses on areas such as the Arctic or small island nations, the effects on regions such as the Middle East, and particularly Iraq, is often overlooked. Yet, the consequences of climate change in Iraq are profound and far-reaching, affecting not only the environment but also exacerbating existing social, economic and political challenges. As the world grapples with the wider existential threat, it is critical that we shed light on the plight of Iraq and outline the actions both the country and the international community must take to address this...

    US forces operating in the Arabian Sea have seized a massive arsenal of Iranian weapons that were bound for Houthi rebels in Yemen, the latest indication that Tehran plans to prolong the conflict in the region by supplying the terror group. Photos posted online by CENTCOM, the United States command in the Middle East, show a United States Coast Guard ship beside a rusty skiff vessel on January 28. Another photo showed the cache of contraband that was found on board. The weaponry included materials necessary for ballistic missiles, anti tank rockets and explosives as well as communication equipment.

    White House Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Wednesday that Republicans who oppose a Biden administration-backed bill on foreign aid and border security are “siding with Trump, Vladimir Putin, and Tehran,” effectively accusing them of treason. Jean-Pierre repeated the accusation, for emphasis, throughout a press briefing at the White House on Wednesday. No one in the press corps thought to challenge her on the tactic of accusing domestic political opponents of siding with America’s enemies. The bill has passed the Senate but is considered dead on arrival in the House, where Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) will not bring it to the...

    Following the deadly Iran-backed attack on American troops in Jordan on January 28, Biden and his Pentagon brass pledged a "multi-tier" response for the brazen assault that killed three U.S. service members. The retributive strikes saw at least one senior leader of Kata'ib Hezbollah — one of the handful of Iran-backed terrorist organizations that have been coordinating scores of attacks on U.S. troops in the Middle East since October — in Baghdad, but there was a notable lack of punishment for the source of all the chaos in the region: the regime in Tehran. It appears that was by Biden's...
  • Jeff Flake, Biden’s Ambassador To Turkey, Rebuked For Interfering In The Country’s Internal Affairs

    Former Arizona Senator and RINO Republican Jeff Flake who earned an appointment by Joe Biden as Ambassador to Turkey for his service to the Democrat Party began his tenure by interfering in the internal affairs of Turkey. His actions provoked a rebuke by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan who said he will not receive Biden’s appointee. Flake visited Republican People’s Party leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu at the center-left political party’s Ankara headquarters in late March. The visit conveyed a sense of U.S. support for his candidacy violating normal diplomatic protocol. Kilicdaroglu is Erdogan’s main opponent for the presidency, in the May...
