Map of Israel, the Palestinian territories (West Bank and Gaza Strip), the Golan Heights, and portions of neighbouring countries. Also United Nations deployment areas in countries adjoining Israel or Israeli-held territory, as of January 2004. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Following President Donald Trump’s declaration that the U.S. would recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Palestinian Liberation Organization leader Saeb Erekat quickly shot back and demanded “equal rights for everyone living in historic Palestine.” Protests over Trump’s move have sparked riots in Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip and even violent protests in Europe, from Germany to Sweden. But how exactly did Arab Muslims treat Christians and Jews when they ruled over Jerusalem for 19 years? It appears Arabs were anything but tolerant toward either. The Daily Caller News Foundation examined Arab rule over the eastern half of Jerusalem from 1949 until 1967, and found that both Christians and Jews were routinely denied religious freedom and often faced persecution at the hands of the Arabs...

A flare-up on the western edge of Southern California's largest and most destructive wildfire sent residents fleeing Sunday, as wind-fanned flames churned through canyons and down hillsides toward coastal towns. The so-called Thomas Fire is only 15 percent contained, now threatening the city of Santa Barbara and the nearby coastal town of Carpinteria, and is on track to become one of the worst wildfires in California history. It has already destroyed 583 structures and scorched 173,000 acres, the authorities say. New evacuations were ordered in Carpinteria, which been under fire threat for days. The new evacuation zone extends within two miles of the Santa Barbara Zoo. Zoo Director Nancy McToldridge said in a statement that there was 'no immediate danger' from the fire and that the zoo was closed with all animals inside to shelter from smoke. 'We drill for and are prepared for emergencies,' she said, adding that an evacuation plan for the animals was in place if needed.... Continue reading

A 27-year-old Bangladeshi national has been taken into custody with serious injuries after a suspected pipe bomb he was carrying malfunctioned and exploded prematurely inside a Midtown Manhattan subway station Monday morning. Commuters said they felt a blast in the Subway tunnels underneath the Port Authority Bus Terminal around 7:30am. The bus terminal is a major transit hub for people commuting to and from New Jersey by bus, and is located just a block from Times Square. Police have taken one man into custody, who was wearing a pipe bomb with wires and a battery back, a source told the New York Post. He was injured when the bomb malfunctioned, but is alive and in stable condition, according to the FDNY. The FDNY says a total of four people were injured and that the injuries were non-life-threatening. The injured count includes the suspect. While the suspect has not been identified by name, the Post reports that he is 27-year-old Bangladeshi... Continue reading

God says: ‘I will set my face against anyone who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute themselves by following them, and I will cut them off from their people.' NEW PALTZ, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — At a time when participation in traditional religions is declining among Americans, the practice of witchcraft is said to be on the rise. CBS2’s Ali Bauman went inside the secret world of modern-day witches to explore why so many say they’re falling under the spell of the devil. “I am the high priestess,” Lisa Stewart said. “To be a witch is incredibly relevant in today’s society,” Anton Stewart explained.

Industry experts say that the raging southern California wildfires are now destroying the state's precious avocado crop. 'We've lost at least several hundred acres of avocados, probably more,' Research Program Director for the California Avocado Commission Tim Spann told AgNet West. It's estimated that more than 132,000 acres of land in Ventura County have been blackened by the wildfire, named the Thomas Fire. Experts do not expect avocado prices to rise due to the wildfire damage, since Ventura's crops represent only a portion of the worldwide production. Most avocados are grown in Mexico and South America. In August 2017, reports surfaced that avocado prices rose in the US due to a poor harvest in both the US and Mexico the previous year. Still, 2016's avocado harvest produced a crop worth in excess of $400million, reports BBC News.

Comedian Tom Arnold has claimed that radio host and alleged sexual harassment victim Leann Tweeden was 'coached' and 'groomed' by political guru Roger Stone to take down Al Franken. Arnold alleged that while the photo of Franken pretending to grope Tweeden while she was asleep is real, she was cruelly manipulated by Stone into becoming a tool to oust the Democrat senator. 'It seems to me that these men around Leeann groomed her in pretty much the same manner prolific sexual predators groom their victims,' he told his Twitter followers. And as well as making the startling remarks about his 'old friend', he also presented what he said was proof of the conspiracy. Scroll down for video Plot? Comedian Tom Arnold claims that this photo, which led to Al Franken stepping down, was leaked after an ex-Trump adviser manipulated Leeann Tweeden (center) into doing so Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5161687/Tom-Arnold-claims-Al-Franken-accusation-smear-campaign.html#ixzz50rjQhDoj Continue reading

If you read the comments carefully, you will see that this study is only a starting point, and that more info is needed. HOWEVER,worshiping marijuana as the panacea of all drugs, is foolish. The drug has uses and proven benefits, but we can not ignore health issues that may come up because we want to ignore them.

DISGUSTING VERDICT! We have become a police state A former Arizona police officer was found not guilty of murder Thursday of in the 2016 fatal shooting of an unarmed man outside his hotel room, as video of the shocking moment is finally released by officials. Philip Mitchell Brailsford, 27, was found not guilty in the 2016 death of 26-year-old father-of-two Daniel Shaver, from Granbury, Texas. The shooting, which Shaver's family has referred to as an 'execution,' occurred in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa when officers were responding to a call that someone was pointing a gun out a window at the La Quinta Hotel. Police told Shaver to exit his hotel room, lay face-down in a hallway and refrain from making sudden movements - or he risked being shot. New disturbing footage of the encounter shows the moment Shaver, sobbing and crawling towards the officer, audibly begs 'please don't kill me,' before Brailsford opens fire and shoots him dead. Shocking... Continue reading

English: Stock Market Learning - Logo (Photo credit: Wikipedia) The stock market tanked briefly last Friday on a misleading ABC News report that made it seem as though President Trump’s legal problems were increasing. That report, which got an ABC News correspondent in deep trouble, said Trump gave orders to retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (then a national security adviser) to contact the Russians before he won the election. It was later corrected that the order came after Trump had won — during the transition. On that correction, the stock market regained most of the ground it had lost. Friday’s action gave us a preview of what is going to happen if Trump gets into real trouble. Early on, I was following this stuff closely and had very good sources. These days, I’m working on a story that I can’t tell you about that — if it turns out to be true — will dominate the headlines for months. MORE Continue reading

Things are hotting up in the world of sauna research. Previously, anecdotal claims of possible benefits were rarely backed up by medical evidence. But recent studies have shown that taking a regular sauna can be extremely good for your health – alleviating and preventing the risk of common acute and chronic conditions. Sauna 'bathing' is a form of passive heat therapy which originates from Finland and is mostly associated with Nordic countries. It is used mainly for pleasure and relaxation, and involves spending short periods of time (usually five to 20 minutes) in temperatures of 80°C to 100°C, interspersed with moments of cooling-off in a pool or shower. Until now, most evidence on saunas has been anecdotal. But recent studies have shown how saunas can alleviate and prevent illness (file image) Although there are other forms of heat therapy such as Turkish baths, infrared saunas, and Waon therapy, the traditional Finnish sauna is the most examined to date. In a... Continue reading

The FBI agent who was fired from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation team for sending anti-Donald Trump text messages conducted the interviews with two Hillary Clinton aides accused of giving false statements about what they knew of the former secretary of state’s private email server. Neither of the Clinton associates, Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, faced legal consequences for their misleading statements, which they made in interviews last year with former FBI section chief Peter Strzok.

REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst The starkly different outcomes from Strzok’s interviews — a felony charge against Flynn and a free pass to Mills and Abedin — are sure to raise questions from Republicans about double-standards in the FBI’s two most prominent political investigations. FBI Director Christopher Wray will likely be pressed on the Strzok scandal on... Continue reading

English: (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Alex Jones has warned the criminal indictment unsealed against former White House national security advisor Michael Flynn is part of the globalist plot to potentially kill President Trump and start a civil war. “If we allow the evil people that hijack this country, the globalists, to remove Trump with all this fraud, and if we buy into the hype … if they’re able to do that, it will cause a massive civil war in this country. Economic, physical, there’ll be all sorts of permutations of it, and it will absolutely have this country descend into a nightmare,” Jones told listeners on Friday. “I don’t think they’re going to be able to remove Trump with all of this made-up Russia stuff, but they’re clearly going to go to their next plan to kill him, and they’ve been warming that up. And I don’t even like the different scenarios that are there of what we’re going to have... Continue reading

Hold-up on the criticism folks. Three important statements today from the DOJ, FBI and OIG indicate there have been ongoing investigations and reviews of conduct within the upper tiers of leadership within the Department of Justice and the FBI. Given the nature of the leaked IG investigation to the Washington Post and New York times; surrounding apex investigator and deputy head of counterintelligence at the FBI Peter Strzok; and accepting the direct approach of President Trump in his tweets toward that revelation; and adding the layer of Intel Chairman Devin Nunes threatening to file ‘contempt of congress charges‘; there is every indication something is about to break – very soon. (L-R) Attorney General Jeff Sessions – FBI Director Christopher Wray “[The allegations] if proven to be true, would raise serious questions of public trust. I look forward to receiving the Inspector General’s report. We will ensure that anyone who works on any investigation in the Department of Justice does so... Continue reading

English: Professor Alan Dershowitz of Harvard Law School. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) On Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz argued that former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s guilty plea is a “show of weakness” for Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Dershowitz said, “Well, the last thing any prosecutor wants to do is to have to indict his primary witness for lying. Because if you indict your witness for lying, it really means he’s not useful as a witness, he has no credibility. I’m sure the prosecutor was trying to indict him for some scheme or conspiracy that involved other people in the White House, but there is nothing there, and he had to, finally come down and indict him for lying, which makes him a useless witness. So, this is not a show of strength by the prosecutor. It’s a show of weakness. It’s a show that they really have nothing on... Continue reading

English: Dead Sea Scroll - part of Isaiah Scroll (Isa 57:17 - 59:9), 1QIsa b (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Israel has pulled out of a planned exhibit of the Dead Sea Scrolls in Germany because officials there have refused to ensure the biblical and archaeological treasures will not be seized. The Jewish state had asked Germany to provide a guarantee the exhibit would be returned to Israel in the event the Palestinian Authority or the government of Jordan claimed ownership of the antiquities discovered in caves in Qumran, near the Dead Sea. Twelve years ago, Germany became the first country to exhibit a segment of the scrolls outside the Middle East, according to James Snyder, then director of the Israel Museum. The Frankfurt Bible Museum announced it has canceled the exhibit scheduled for a September 2019 opening. Its director, Jürgen Schefzyk, said he regretted the German government’s decision, adding that neither Holland nor Austria would have hesitated to issue general immunity... Continue reading

Forward: I find it amazing that this story on the shooting has died! Even Liberal Democrats are not talking about this, for their gun control mantra. If there ever is a cover-up- THIS IS IT! Now the lawyer is dead! This is NOT FAKE NEWS (just not being reported) here is his obit! Orville Almon, the lawyer representing the Route 91 music festival and Jason Aldean, the singer onstage when the Las Vegas shooting began, has been found dead. He was 67. Almon, a prominent Nashville attorney, opened his private practice Almon Law in 2010 where he represented musicians and entertainment industry organizations during battles with the law. While his practice included re-negotiating existing agreements and new technology issues, and was renowned for negotiating with law enforcement, recent social media posts suggested the experienced attorney was feeling the strain of his latest high-profile case. Describing meetings with MGM, Las Vegas police, and the FBI as “incredibly strange and complex” to... Continue reading

(Photo credit: Wikipedia) The Times of Israel reports: WASHINGTON — Defying longstanding American policy, US President Donald Trump will give a speech Wednesday recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, according to an Axios report on Friday. A White House spokesman, contacted by The Times of Israel on Friday afternoon, would not confirm the story. “The president has always said it is a matter of when, not if,” the official said. “The president is still considering options and we have nothing to announce.” The Axios report cited two sources with direct knowledge of Trump’s intentions.

Barack Obama & Vladimir Putin at Putin's dacha 2009-07-07 (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Claudia Rosett, an award-winning journalist who worked for the Wall Street Journal for 17 years and known for her groundbreaking reporting on UN corruption, picks through the nuances of despots and dictators around the world. Rosett sat down with The Daily Caller News Foundation and said the message from the 2016 election had nothing to do with Russia, but everything to do with shrinking paychecks, vanishing jobs and over-regulation. The Democrats’ rhetoric about Trump’s supposed Russian collusion does not match the degree of enthusiasm and flexibility that former President Barack Obama actually displayed to Russia for his entire two terms, Rosett says in this video interview. She cites: when Obama was caught on a hot mic promising flexibility to Vladimir Putin, shelving missile defense for Europe in a phony “reset” with our dangerous adversary, inadequate pursuit of Edward Snowden who is still hiding in Russia, the imaginary “red...

Yes you read the correctly! Many, who claim that God did away with and The Sabbath Day have a problem, and that problem is with the Bible! In fact, their problem is not only with the words in the Bible concerning the Sabbath Day (as well as Holy Days and even sacrifices) these words SHOULD BE IN RED (like in the Plain Truth's Bible)... You see, The Lord God Himself (non-other than the being who became Jesus Christ) tells us plainly that during the millennium, that animal sacrifices, The Sabbath Day, CIRCUMCISION, and the Holy Days will be observed by God's people, or they will be thrown out of the kingdom! The LAW (which most Christian Churches teach has been abolished) will be in full force! Even God's DIET will be enforced!

A San Francisco jury found the illegal immigrant accused of killing Kate Steinle not guilty of murder Thursday, a stunning result in a case that ignited a nationwide debate over illegal immigration and sanctuary cities. After five days of jury deliberation, Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, 54, was found not guilty on all counts, except for felony possession of a weapon. Zarate faced a charge of second-degree murder, but jurors were also instructed to consider first-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. At trial, Zarate admitted to firing the shot that killed Steinle, but the defense contended that the gun “went off” in his hands after he found it underneath a bench on the San Francisco pier. A ballistics investigation into the shooting revealed that the bullet skipped off the pavement before hitting Steinle, lending some credence to Zarate’s claims that the shooting was an accident.

Vaccine manufacturer Sanofi Pasteur announced Wednesday that a dengue vaccine already distributed to hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren could instead cause more severe cases of the disease in people who were not already infected. “For those not previously infected by dengue virus… analysis found that in the longer term, more cases of severe disease could occur following vaccination upon a subsequent dengue infection,” Sanofi stated in a press release after reviewing results of a six-year clinical study. The vaccine giant’s announcement is a major shock as the company’s Dengvaxia shot has been approved for release in 11 countries, including the Philippines where roughly 700,000 children have already received the vaccine as part of a mass vaccination effort started in 2016. “It means some of them will develop severe dengue; we don’t know who. All of them will have to live with this possibility for the rest of their lives,” former Philippine College of Physicians Foundation president Dr. Anthony Leachon said.... Continue reading

Even U.S. Supreme Court justices are wondering why members of the National Abortion Federation are being protected by a California judge’s gag order on an undercover video in which an industry insider admits it’s “a person, it’s killing.” The American Center for Law and Justice has confirmed the court has ordered the National Abortion Federation to respond to ACLJ’s petition for the court to review and reverse the order. The undercover video was in a series released in 2015 by the Center for Medical Progress that show Planned Parenthood executives and other abortion-business insiders admitting they sell unborn baby body parts for profit. The FBI is investigating Planned Parenthood, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions confirmed during a recent hearing that a senatorial probe could be the basis for eventual charges against the abortion-industry giant. The current case is over an undercover video capturing statements from members of the National Abortion Federation.

Crazy Kim's nuclear threat to the West is suddenly VERY real: As North Korea launches its most powerful missile yet, a chilling account of why America's defense shield ISN'T impregnable - and Britain's even more vulnerable Read MORE North Korea’s launch of a new style of intercontinental ballistic missile demonstrated the regime now has the ability to hit ‘everywhere in the world’, the United States warned yesterday. The comment by U.S. Defence Secretary Jim Mattis came as Kim Jong-un declared the test had helped his country ‘complete’ its goal of becoming a nuclear power. The ICBM reached an altitude of 2,780 miles, more than ten times the height of the International Space Station. It travelled 600 miles on Tuesday and, based on its trajectory and distance, the missile would have a range of more than 8,100  miles, experts said. This would be enough to reach London — which is 5,397 miles from North Korean capital Pyongyang. It would also be able... Continue reading
