After The Media Insists Palestinians Are 'Peacefully Protesting,' Hamas Confirms 'No, They're Not'
Senior Hamas official Mahmoud al-Zahhar said the riots on the Israel-Gaza border are "not peaceful resistance" but rather, are supported by its "military force," reports The Washington Free Beacon.
"This is not peaceful resistance," al-Zahhar said. "Has the option [of armed struggle] diminished? No. On the contrary, it is growing and developing. That's clear."
The video was flagged and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute and the interview occurred on the Al Jazerra network in Qatar on May 13.
WATCH: Journalists Repeatedly Call Cuba Embassy 'Historic' And Jerusalem Embassy 'Controversial' The United States officially moved its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Monday, and the liberal news outlets covered as you would expect them too. Almost all of the cable news talk show hosts, besides Fox News, said that the new Jerusalem embassy was "controversial" while praising the U.S. embassy in Cuba as "historic," reports The Washington Free Beacon.
Many new's coverage of the embassy opening in Jerusalem this week was also played against the ongoing clashes between Palestinians and Israelis in Jerusalem and Gaza. All of the networks chose to highlight how the embassy opening had possibly caused these fights to increase and were only marked by controversy instead of the landmark that it was.
Amazing what radical leftists and Islamists have in common. And they're bringing it here Let's take a cruise through some of their similarities... Leftists want socialism to reign supreme via an all powerful controlling government. Islamists want the exact same thing. Just replace the words "Democratic Socialist president" with "Caliph." Exchange "Socialist Republic" with the word "Caliphate." One uses a distorted and modified Constitution while the other just calls it Sharia Law. Add it all together and you get the same result. A socialist fantasy world under the direction of an oppressive government.
South Africa's ruling party: Israel's actions 'Nazi-like' JTA - The African National Congress, South Africa's ruling political party, compared Israel's actions on the Gaza border to Nazi Germany's actions against the Jews. The ANC in a statement said it "views with complete shock and dismay the Israeli armed forces' massacre of peaceful Palestinian protesters."

The road to Hell in the Middle East: Gearing up for the third Gulf War
With Donald Trump's decision to shred the Iran nuclear agreement, announced last Tuesday, it's time for the rest of us to start thinking about what a Third Gulf War would mean. The answer, based on the last 16 years of American experience in the Greater Middle East, is that it won't be pretty.

An Iranian student group has said it will pay $100,000 to anyone who is able to destroy the newly opened U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. The embassy was opened yesterday, accompanied by protests in the Gaza Strip that saw at least 58 Palestinians killed by Israeli army snipers.

Millennials shift Democrats even farther to the left... You would think any political theory that resulted in the deaths of 100 million people would have been discredited by now, but socialism is back in style. The bicentennial of Karl Marx's birth has coincided with a groundswell of support for the communist theorist's ideas. Dozens of Democrats running for local office have embraced the socialist label, and national party leaders are advocating bigger government as they jockey for position on the left wing of the party.

Rejoice With Jerusalem: Be Glad For Her, All You Who Love This City!
President Trump's decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem is not merely a wise one politically (it has been Congressional law since 1995), it is a resonant one spiritually. Jerusalem is the center of the Jewish heart; it always was, and it always will be. Recognizing that fact is key to recognizing the legitimacy of the entire Judeo-Christian tradition upon which the West relies. There is a reason that a Jewish Jerusalem is an open Jerusalem, where all can worship as they see fit - a place from which "the word of the Lord" goes out (Isaiah 2:3). History exists; truth exists. Jerusalem has not been forgotten and will not be forgotten - its streets sing with throngs of Jews, nearly wiped off the planet within living memory, and its temples are filled with the psalms of David. The tears have turned to laughter.
We're entering into 'unprecedented territory' in Middle East: Ex-DOD official "We're entering into unprecedented territory and to simply look at it through the lens of the Israeli-Palestinian problem would be distracting," said Rubin, now a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank. "If you look back at the Arab Spring, that had everything to do with every single issue which wasn't the Arab-Israeli conflict," he added, referring to the event that spread throughout the Middle East and saw the toppling of dictators in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia.
Hezbollah Says Rocket Attack on Israel Marks 'New Phase' in Syrian War
The leader of Lebanon's powerful Hezbollah group, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, said on Monday a missile attack from Syria into the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights last week marked a new phase in the Syrian war. Israel has said the attack was carried out by Iran's Revolutionary Guards, which set up Hezbollah in 1982. Shi'ite Hezbollah is fighting in Syria in support of President Bashar Assad.
Iran says Israelis should be tried as 'war criminals'
Iran said on Tuesday that Israeli officials should be tried as war criminals over the "brutal massacre" of Gazan protesters the previous day. "The killing of children, women and defenseless people of Palestine and the occupation of Palestinian lands has become the main strategy of the Zionists over the 70 years of occupation," said foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi on the ministry's website.
UN blames Israel for rioters' deaths
AS USUAL, IRAN AND THE UN ARE IN COMPLETE AGREEMENT. The United Nations accused Israel on Tuesday of using excessive force in repelling Gaza rioters attempting to break through Israel's border fence. On Monday, 60 Arab rioters were killed after tens of thousands converged on the Israel-Gaza border in a series of violent protests dubbed the "March of Return".
Media smears Israel as Gazans riot during embassy opening
The historic move was overshadowed in much of the foreign news coverage of the day, however, by the violent protests taking place along the Gaza border. Since March 30th, tens of thousands of rioters have gathered along Israel's security fence on the Gaza frontier, hurling firebombs and stones at soldiers, placing bombs along the security perimeter, attempting to breach the fence, and even using kites to drop improvised explosive devices and incendiary bombs inside of Israeli territory.
Netanyahu Thanks Trump for Keeping Promises, moving Embassy to Jerusalem
Sixty-nine years after Israel declared Jerusalem as its capital, and 23 years after the US Congress passed a law mandating that Washington move its embassy there, the US formally opened its embassy in the city on Monday afternoon, in a move Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called "courageous" and "momentous." "What a glorious day. Remember this moment!" Netanyahu entreated the applauding crowd. "President Trump, by recognizing history, you have made history. All of us are deeply moved. All of us are deeply grateful."
Microchips get under the skin of technophile Swedes A tiny microchip inserted under the skin can replace the need to carry keys, credit cards and train tickets. That might sound like an Orwellian nightmare to some but in Sweden it is a welcome reality for a growing number who favors convenience over concerns of potential personal data violations.
Teen Vogue glorifies Karl Marx
Teen Vogue recently published a controversial article entitled "Who is Karl Marx: Meet the Anti-Capitalist Scholar," promoting it on Twitter saying that "The political philosopher turned 200-years-old on May 5, but his ideas can still teach us about the past and present." Author Danielle Corcione vilifies "rich people" and "bosses" in the piece, while gushing that through The Communist Manifesto, Marx "inspired millions of people to resist oppressive political leaders and spark political revolutions all over the world."
California State Professor: 'Don't Call The Police On Black People'
On Saturday, California State University Los Angeles Professor Melina Abdullah tweeted out a clarion call to Americans: stop calling the police on black people. Now perhaps she meant that you shouldn't call the police on somebody just because they're black - which, of course, is correct. You shouldn't call the police on somebody based on an immutable characteristic, rather than based on criminal behavior. That's racism.
But then she clarified: you should never call the police.
Turkish President Erdogan: Israeli regime pushing Middle East to war The Turkish president made the comments in an interview with BBC Arabic on Sunday, saying the occupying regime "is sowing fear and pushing" the Middle East "region to war."

Turkey: US, Russia proxy war on Syria a 'dangerous path'
Turkey's Culture and Tourism Minister Numan Kurtulmus on Friday said the proxy war between the US and Russia is a "dangerous path" to take. Speaking at Istanbul Forum for Arab Journalists in Istanbul, Kurtulmus said: "I am one of those who believe all problems, especially the Syrian problem, will be solved if the forces coming from the outside of the region stop to make calculations on the people of the region."
YouTube suspends abortion pill reversal videos, silencing women who chose life Last week, YouTube suspended the Abortion Pill Reversal (APR) account for "repeated or severe violations of [the] Community Guidelines." Four videos were posted to the account. The "offending" videos included one webinar explaining APR in scientific and medical terms. The remaining three told the stories of women who chose life for their babies using the APR protocol.
Israel Strikes Iranian Targets in Syria as Regional Tensions Mount Israel's military carried out strikes against Iranian targets in Syria after it said Iranian forces based there fired rockets at its soldiers in the Golan Heights, raising the risk of a wider regional war just a day after President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the international nuclear deal with Tehran.
Israel's Defense Minister Warns Iran: If We Get Rain, You Get a Flood Liberman was speaking at the annual foreign policy conference at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya, which brings together national security experts from Israel, the United States, and beyond.

Saudi Arabia to do 'everything it can' to develop NUKES amid fear of Middle East Arms Race Following the withdrawal of the US from the Obama-era Iranian nuclear deal, there is concern a nuclear arms race could be triggered - despite Donald Trump's assertion he was withdrawing to prevent such actions.
The President said: "If I allowed this deal to stand, there would soon be a nuclear arms race in the Middle East."
Foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir told CNN it would match Tehran if it developed nukes.
He said: "If Iran acquires nuclear capability we will do everything we can to do the same."
Series of quakes shake area near geothermal field in Northern California
A magnitude 4.2 earthquake struck about 3 miles northwest of the Geysers geothermal field Wednesday evening and was followed by a series of aftershocks, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

"When Hezbollah wins, it means that Iran has won in Lebanon," observed Hanin Ghaddar -- a prominent Lebanese journalist who is now a visiting fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy think tank - as results showed Prime Minister Sa'ad Hariri's pro-western Future Movement losing up to one-third of its parliamentary seats.
Syrian state media says Israel attacked just after U.S. quit Iran deal
Syrian state media accused Israel of launching missiles at a target near Damascus on Tuesday, shortly after U.S. President Donald Trump announced he was quitting the Iranian nuclear deal, a move that had prompted Israel to go on high alert. The Israeli military said that, upon identifying "irregular activity" by Iranian forces in Syria, it instructed civic authorities on the Golan Heights to ready bomb shelters, deployed new defenses and mobilized some reservist forces.
Unusual Movement of Iranian Forces... Syria said Tuesday that Israel carried out an attack on a military base south of Damascus, which was used by Iranian forces. According to reports, Israeli fighter jets entered Syrian airspace and struck Iranian missiles aimed at Israel. The Israeli military said it identified what it said was unusual movements of Iranian forces in Syria, and it believed those forces were preparing for an imminent retaliation against Israel.
The president and Netanyahu have had a close friendship since the beginning of the Trump administration, with the U.S. siding with Israel on a host of policy issues that had long been on the back burner. But Trump's announcement Tuesday that the U.S. was withdrawing from the landmark Iran nuclear deal cemented that relationship like nothing else in the past 16 months.
Quakes and eruptions spark talks of Yellowstone super cvolcano
A cluster of earthquakes at Yellowstone National Park followed by the fourth eruption of its usually dormant geyser has sparked speculation about the world's largest super volcano. Is the big one about to blow, blanketing the U.S. with ash and sending the Earth into a volcanic ice age?
DEBKAfile's Washington and military sources report exclusively that the president's announcement came against the background of unusual US, British and French forces heading for the Middle East and deploying in countries bordering on Syria. These startling events point suggestively in two directions...
Lebanon's election upset opens Iran's second anti-Israel front after Syria
The Iranian-backed Shiite bloc was set Monday, May 7, to sweep the board of Lebanon's first election in 9 years with 70-80 seats in the 128-member parliament. Most of the votes have been counted. With this spectacular win for Iran, the IDF's decision Sunday to warn the Israeli public that Iranian, Hizballah and Shiite units were poised ready in Syria to rain missiles and rockets down on northern Israel, has fallen flat.
Israel on peak alert for Iranian missile strike as Lebanese vote ends
Israel's three-week long high military alert along its northern borders with Syria and Lebanon peaked Sunday night, May 6, as polling stations closed in Lebanon's first election in nine years. Israeli political and military strategists calculate that, now the election is over, Iran will make good on its vow of vengeance at any time between now and the May 14 inauguration of the US embassy in Jerusalem.
Macron: Trump leaving nuclear deal could lead to war French President Emmanuel Macron warned on Sunday that war could ensue if U.S. President Donald Trump withdraws from the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, Reuters reported.

$50-Million Michael Moore Praises Communist Karl Marx, Father of 20th Century Class-Genocide
Documentary filmmaker and left-wing activist Michael Moore, who has an estimated net worth of $50 million, effusively praised Karl Marx, the intellectual founder of Marxist Communism, a brutal idology that killed an estimated 100 million people worldwide in the 20th century, and whose Soviet leaders -- Lenin and Stalin -- inspired the German National Socialist Adolf Hitler.

Iran ignites World War 3 fears with plans to scrap nuclear deal and develop weapons Iran has vowed to restrict inspector access to its nuclear sites if Donald Trump pulls the US out of the agreement next week, according to a senior Iranian official. They added that Tehran is believed to have drawn up various possible responses if Donald Trump refuses to extend a waiver on US sanctions on May 12. Iran is considering resuming enrichment of uranium to 20 percent.
World War 3: UN chief fears Saudi Arabia & Israel will fight Iran unless Trump acts Sparking fears of World War 3, the UN Secretary General told BBC Radio 4 Today the risks of a new conflict in the Middle East are high, as tensions between Iran on one hand and Israel, Saudi Arabia and the USA on the other, continue to rise. Mr Guterres added US President Donald Trump should avoid running such risks by renewing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran until a better solution is found to the Iranian chemical weapons threat, instead of scrapping the deal altogether.
World War 3 Warning: '30 minute countdown' when Russia strikes US, claims David Meade World War 3 tensions have eased since Russia and the US clashed over Syria but a notorious conspiracy theorist has now warned Vladimir Putin's military might could wipe out America in just 30 minutes. The self-titled Christian Numerologist, who is popular in the conspiracy theory circuit, is concerned the US is ill-equipped for a potential all-out global conflict with the East. Questioning the possibility of a World War 3 outbreak in the near future, Mr Meade concluded "the risk of total war is upon us".
Israel sees Iran war looming as Mideast tinderbox awaits a spark TEL AVIV, Israel - There have been coups and revolutions, external invasions and proxy conflicts, but the Middle East hasn't seen a head-to-head war between major regional powers since the 1980s.

Navy to resurrect fleet to protect the East Coast and North Atlantic from Russia The U.S. Navy has reactivated a fleet responsible for overseeing the East Coast and North Atlantic - an escalation of the Pentagon's focus on a resurgent Russia and its expanding military presence. "This is a dynamic response to the dynamic security environment," Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson said onboard the carrier George H.W. Bush. "So as we've seen this great power competition emerge, the Atlantic Ocean is as dynamic a theater as any and particular the North Atlantic, so as we consider high-end naval warfare, fighting in the Atlantic, that will be the 2nd Fleet's responsibility."

Israeli satellite firm reports 'unusual' activity at Iran nuclear site An Israeli satellite imaging company on Thursday released images showing what it described as "unusual" movement around the Iranian Fordo nuclear facility, a one-time uranium enrichment plant buried deep underground that was converted to a research center as part of the 2015 nuclear deal.
The photographs, which show large numbers of vehicles at the entrance to the facility and other signs of increased activity there, do not in themselves indicate any violation of the nuclear accord, known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA
By striking Iran in Tehran as well as Syria, Israel opened another war arena outside Syria Israel has been braced for Tehran' revenge - and on high war alert – for three weeks, after opening two war fronts against the Islamic Republic. One in Syria, by means of air and missile strikes on Iran's Syrian infrastructure (on Feb. 10, April 9 and April 29) and two, an intelligence coup in the heart of Tehran, where Israel agents raided the secret hideout of Iran's Atomic Archive and walked off with its contents.

Facebook facing more allegations of anti-conservative bias Conservative groups and individuals are noticing that the reach on their Facebook pages has dropped dramatically in the last couple months - and some are saying it's not by accident. Twice in one week last month, Pastor Rich Penkoski had videos from his "Warriors for Christ" Facebook page removed from public view within seconds of him posting them. "However, if you go into the video section, [which I can do] as the administrator of the page, I can see the videos - and it still shows as if it's running live," he explains - "but the public cannot see it," he adds.
Democrat Reveals National Gun Confiscation Plan
A Democratic congressman "went there" Thursday. In an editorial in USA Today, Rep. Eric Swalwell proposed a mandatory buyback of all "military-style semiautomatic assault weapons" without any "grandfather clause" for existing weapons or any deference to the Second Amendment - the sort of forced-confiscation plan that gun-rights advocates have warned about and gun-controllers have hotly denied they seek.

Iranian official: We'll retaliate against Israel's aggression
A senior Iranian official warned on Tuesday that his country will retaliate against Israeli "aggression" in Syria. "We are in Syria at the request of the Syrian government," said Alaeddin Boroujerdi, president of Iran's parliamentary foreign affairs committee, according to AFP. "The aggression of the Zionist entity on our advisers in Syria guarantees us the right of response," he added.
Based on recent events on Capitol Hill, it could be argued that there's growing opposition to the foundational Christian beliefs of America by elected officials in the U.S. government. Several recent congressional hearings bear this out: Russell Vought, Amy Coney Barrett, and Mike Pompeo are examples. In all three cases, a presidential nominee's Christian faith was publicly denounced by left-leaning senators.
AB 2943, a measure currently working its way through the California legislature, would make it illegal, under fraud laws, to sell books or counsel someone or have a conference speaker who affirms the possibility that one can lessen or get rid of same-sex attraction. There look to be few roadblocks to keep it from becoming law - but even though it's not even law yet, it appears to already be having an effect on a Christian ministry.
Cloning horror: Human clone fears as Euro scientists CREATE LIFE from 'nothing' The experimental research combined two types of stem cells and created a viable embryo - which the team say would provide an unlimited stock for medical research. The created embryos would also be used for medical treatment testing and help shed light on one of the biggest infertility enigmas - why embryos fail to implant in the womb. However critics say it is a huge step towards human cloning.
Iranian-Backed Cells Pose 'Direct Threat To US Homeland' Iranian-backed terror cells in the U.S. pose "a direct threat to the homeland." That was the conclusion of Rep. Peter King (R., N.Y.) after hearing from a panel of intelligence experts testifying before the House subcommittee on counterterrorism and intelligence, which he chairs, reported The Washington Free Beacon.
Those experts said that it would be easy for Iran to order its Lebanese proxy Hezbollah to launch a large-scale terror attack in the U.S. As tensions increase between Iran and the U.S. over the possibility of President Trump scrapping the nuclear deal, such an attack is quite plausible.
Jewish symbols are vanishing all over Europe
Jewish symbols are disappearing from the cities of Europe. The deputy mayor of Toulouse and the only Jew on the City Council, Aviv Zonabend, said that all European Jews should hide their kippah and that "the future of the Jewish people in Europe is hopeless." After German Jewish leader Josef Schuster advised his co-religionists not to wear a kippah in Germany, Zonabend said: "Only in Germany? We have to remove it all over Europe."
In a long speech in Ramallah at a rare session of the Palestinian National Council, Abbas regurgitated a number of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories in what he called a "history lesson," seeking to disprove the 3,000 year-old Jewish connection to the Land of Israel.

Adviser to Pope Francis Praises Karl Marx, Claims No Link to Communist Atrocities
Cardinal Reinhard Marx, head of the German Bishop's Conference and among the nine closest advisers to Pope Francis, applauded the teachings of Communist Karl Marx, whose 200th birthday occurs on May 5, claiming that the Communist Manifesto "impressed" him, helped to shape Catholic social doctrine, and was in no way responsible for the Communist atrocities and class-genocide committed by Marx's followers over the last 100-plus years.

Israel: Documents prove Iran lied about nuclear program JERUSALEM (April 30, 2018) - Israel's prime minister on Monday unveiled what he said was a "half ton" of Iranian nuclear documents collected by Israeli intelligence, claiming the trove of information proved that Iranian leaders covered up a nuclear weapons program before signing a deal with the international community in 2015.
In a speech delivered in English and relying on his trademark use of visual aids, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that the material showed that Iran cannot be trusted, and encouraged President Donald Trump to withdraw from the deal next month.
Israel ready to bomb Iran if necessary sraeli defense officials have told their American and Russian counterparts that if Iranian-backed forces attack Israel from inside Syria, Jerusalem will not hold back from retaliating with direct strikes against Tehran or other targets in Iran.
The officials delivered the message ahead of a national security statement expected Monday from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in response to Iranian threats to hit Israel after recent strikes on Tehran-backed assets in Syria, according to a report by Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper.
Do you go to Snopes.com for fact checking? Think again. The "fact check" site is useful when vetting a news story that favors a progressive take. If even the left-leaning Snopes finds it false or mostly false, that's pretty persuasive. But not so much when it comes to something involving conservatives or conservative causes. This past week, Snopes jumped the shark. In a post about California Assembly Bill 2943, a frightening piece of pure-grade totalitarianism, Snopes belittled a conservative opponent and misrepresented the legislation.

At least 79 government fighters have also been killed, the Observatory said.
What's wrong with American Jewish liberals
Liberal American Jews "are not especially connected to Israel because they are not especially connected to being Jewish." For too many liberal Jews, Israel in their minds, has become an "oppressor" of rights. They have repeatedly attempted to brand Israel as an intolerant society. Liberal Jews will also be the first to disingenuously claim that they are on Israel's side.
California pro-homosexual bill will ban the Bible
There's literally nothing conservatives can do to stop the regressive agenda in the Golden State. California is a picture of what the left wants the entire United States of America to become. If they have their way, we all one day will look just like it.
Shock: Alfie Evans' hospital once caught selling organs of living children Alder Hey, the hospital at the center of the controversy surrounding little Alfie Evans, the UK toddler who was removed from life support against his parents' will and whose parents say he has suffered inhumane treatment at the hands of the hospital, was caught in a controversy just over a decade ago when it sold organs from living children to Aventis Pasteur, a vaccination research firm, and also stockpiled the organs of deceased infants for years without parental knowledge or consent.
U.S. State Department: Abortion is 'not a human right'
The State Department's report on Human Rights and Practices for 2017 was released on Friday, April 20, 2018. Notably absent from the report was a section focusing on women's "reproductive rights."

University of Texas posters tell male students it's OK to wear dresses, embrace 'fluid' masculinity
The University of Texas at Austin's Counseling and Mental Health Center claims it wants to help male students redefine gender identity and develop a "healthier" sense of masculinity. In an attempt to transform ideas about what it means to be a man, the center has rolled out a new series of posters through its MasculinUT program.

But according to Valenti, you would be the degraded one. After all, school teachers should certainly inform pre-pubescent children about matters of moral and scientific controversy. But, you might answer, young children don't have the critical thinking skills necessary to ask important questions about this framework.
