    An Israeli-owned bulldozer kills 23-year-old American woman Rachel Corrie on March 16, 2003, as she protests a demolition campaign that destroyed over a thousand homes in the Gaza Strip. Following the death of their daughter, Corrie’s parents filed a civil lawsuit against the state of Israel, asserting she had been intentionally killed—or that the soldier driving the Israel Defense Forces bulldozer had shown criminal negligence. That lawsuit was rejected by a Haifa judge in 2012, who found that the driver had not seen Corrie as she stood in the bulldozer’s path at the village of Rafah. The ensuing internal Israeli...

    The United States' top intelligence agency wants to ban its spies from using "biased language," including the terms "radical Islamists" and "jihadist," saying these words "are hurtful to Muslim-Americans and detrimentally impact our efforts as they bolster extremist rhetoric," according to a language guide published internally. FreeBeacon The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), which is responsible for handling the country's spy apparatus, seeks to ban a range of common terms because it says they offend Muslims and foment racism against employees. In addition to terms describing Islamic terrorists, ODNI instructs employees to avoid phrases such as "blacklisted,"...

    “Quite interesting was that one of those assailants that participated this Friday in the attack on the concert thing was there on 7 March and photographed by one of the security staff there. They matched that up and it looks a little bit as if maybe the act was intended for 8 March, when a very famous singer, Shaman, was due to sing. An icon of Russian nationalism, he’s famous for his rendition of the national anthem. It really is striking if you ever listen to it, anyway what happened was that at the time the son of the owner...

Abu Marzouk said that "nobody in the whole world" could have expected such a "barbaric" response by Israel. He added that nobody could have anticipated that the U.S., Britian and other Western countries would unite to wage war against Hamas.

    India and the US wanted Jaish-e-Mohammed deputy chief Abdul Rauf Azhar to be designated as a ‘global terrorist’ A month after Beijing shielded Pakistan-based deputy leader of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) Abdul Rehman Makki, an international terrorist, it has done an encore. It has vetoed a similar joint proposal at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), again by India and the US, to designate Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) deputy chief Abdul Rauf Azhar as a “global terrorist.” He is the younger brother of JeM founder Maulana Masood Azhar, another murderous jihadist. India was understandably incensed at China, castigating it for its “double speak” and...

    A female political pundit has been heavily criticised for suggesting Lara Logan should have seen her sex attack coming - and for calling the Egyptians who were protesting for democracy 'animals'. Debbie Schlussel posted a picture of Miss Logan on her blog, under the headline: 'Islam Fan Lara Logan Gets a Taste of Islam', before adding 'How fitting that Lara Logan was “liberated” by Muslims in Liberation Square while she was gushing over the other part of the “liberation".' It comes as an American academic, Nir Rosen, yesterday resigned from his post at New York University after calling Miss Logan...

    New York University’s Center on Law and Security allowed one of its fellows, Nir Rosen, to resign after he tweeted vile things about CBS war correspondent Lara Logan, who sustained a brutal sexual assault and beating in Cairo during pro-democracy celebrations. Why did the center’s executive director, Karen Greenberg, allow him to resign rather than to use the opportunity to take a tougher stand? Here's what she told me: “Nir has always been a really good supporter of the center and I think he realized he had overstepped his bounds....” ...Logan was with a CBS crew in Tahrir Square last...

Nir Rosen, who has contributed to Time, Atlantic Monthly, the Washington Post, New York Times Magazine and Harper's, resigned from the university's Center on Law and Security after trashing Logan publicly on Twitter. Logan, a "60 Minutes" correspondent, suffered a "brutal and sustained sexual assault by a mob of men while covering the Egyptian uprising," CBS News said. She was rescued by...

    Okay, I'd like to know where all of the feminists are? Shouldn't they be standing up and demanding answers regarding the suspicious death of Ashley Turton and the gang rape of Lara Logan? If Bush had been in office, both of these stories would be all over the MSM - and the feminists would be screaming their heads off! For the record, I feel terrible for happened to both of these women. If you are going to post a comment on here that "It's Lara's fault for being in Egypt", then just get lost.

    Be careful what you say, especially in the heat of the moment, on Twitter. As you may recall, immediately following the shootings in Tucson last month, some liberals were quick to blame Sarah Palin for the tragedy. Now, a liberal journalist is taking heat for offensive Tweets he sent immediately following news of the brutal sexual assault suffered by CBS reporter Lara Logan in Egypt. As the news was breaking, Nir Rosen, a journalist and NYU fellow, Tweeted several disturbing remarks, including: "Jesus Christ, at a moment when she is going to become a martyr and glorified we should at...

    As Mary Elizabeth Williams wrote earlier this evening over at Salon, several reporters and bloggers have “decided to hinge the story” of Lara Logan’s rape “on the blond reporter’s looks.” Simone Wilson’s LA Weekly post mocks Logan’s beauty, saying, “Egyptian protesters apparently consummated their newfound independence by sexually assaulting the blonde reporter.” Consummated? Unconscionable. The Mofo Politics blog featured a post on February 3rd, saying, “OMG if I were her captors and there were no sanctions for doing so? I would totally rape her.”

    <p>Nir Rosen is always provocative, but he crossed the line yesterday with his comments about Lara Logan. I am deeply distressed by what he wrote about Ms. Logan and strongly denounce his comments. They were cruel and insensitive and completely unacceptable. Mr. Rosen tells me that he misunderstood the severity of the attack on her in Cairo. He has apologized, withdrawn his remarks, and submitted his resignation as a fellow, which I have accepted. However, this in no way compensates for the harm his comments have inflicted. We are all horrified by what happened to Ms. Logan, and our thoughts are with her during this difficult time.</p>
