They plan to take a leaf from the violent disturbances Hamas and Islamic Jihad staged against Israeli troops from the Gaza border for months. Hizballah strategists estimate that thousands of Shiite men, women and children can be mobilized to harass the Israeli soldiers unearthing its tunnels.
Iranian commander: We can build missiles with broader range Iran has the ability to build ballistic missiles with a broader range, a senior commander of the elite Revolutionary Guards said on Monday, Reuters reported. Iran's missiles currently cover a range of 2000 kilometers (1,240 miles) and many "enemy bases" are within 800 kilometers of the Islamic Republic, claimed Amir Ali Hajjizadeh, head of the Revolutionary Guards' airspace division.
Report: Islamic State Threatening to Stage Biological, Radioactive Attacks The Islamic State group is now threatening to stage biological and radio-active attacks to finish off the anti-ISIS coalition. The organization's Al-Taqwa Media Foundation last week started to publish new inciting material, including animation videos depicting a burning capitol building and abandoned military vehicles as well as civilian cars - as ISIS terrorists raise their black banner. The images also showed four symbols to warn against biohazards which were placed on a nearby building and three barricades near the burning target.
Israel to intensify efforts to bring large numbers of French Jews to Israel France is sinking fast. France's globalist leaders have welcomed millions of people from Muslim majority countries who are hostile to Israel and Jewish people. France is now extremely dangerous for Jews. In addition, Macron's government is one of the most anti-Semitic in recent French history. Jews must flee.
Google Approves App For Muslims To Report People Who Commit Blasphemy Meanwhile, the social media giants are busy deplatforming and silencing foes of jihad terror. Having been one of the early targets of social media censorship on Facebook, YouTube et al, I have for quite some time advocated for anti-trust action against these bullying behemoths. Read my article about this at The American Thinker. We are seeing an unprecedented erosion in our First Amendment rights, increasingly prohibiting the flow of ideas and free expression in the public square (social media). Run by left-wing self-possessed snowflakes, social media giants are indulging their worst autocratic impulses. And because they can, it is getting worse. "Absolute power corrupts absolutely."
Alarm Bells: Are UK Employees Ready For Microchips?
Britain's biggest employer organisation and main trade union body have sounded the alarm over the prospect of British companies implanting staff with microchips to improve security. UK firm BioTeq, which offers the implants to businesses and individuals, has already fitted 150 implants in the UK.
The tiny chips, implanted in the flesh between the thumb and forefinger, are similar to those for pets. They enable people to open their front door, access their office or start their car with a wave of their hand, and can also store medical data.
Netanyahu said this week that the tunnels were meant for use by Hezbollah fighters to infiltrate Israel from Lebanon and carry out attacks. The Israeli military sent mechanical diggers, troops and anti-tunneling equipment to the border to shut them down.
Aimen Dean, who joined Al-Qaeda in 1997, said the trick all began with a letter written by the former US think-tank Project for the New American Century, which was sent to former President Bill Clinton in 1998. It urged Clinton to invade Iraq and "make it a beacon of democracy and to establish American hegemony."
How Iran Turned a 'Counterterror' Meeting into a Push for a New Global Order A key meeting took place on Saturday in Tehran between Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and officials from China, Pakistan, Russia, Turkey and Afghanistan. Rouhani used the meeting to attack "the US, the West and the Zionist regime," which he claimed are supporters of terrorist groups. As such he leveraged a meeting on terrorism to attack Iran's adversaries. The Tehran meeting came a day before the Gulf Cooperation Council, which consists primarily of western allies, gathered in Riyadh on Sunday.
This is what Planned Parenthood calls 'healthcare'
With new president Leana Wen at the helm, Planned Parenthood is advertising itself as a healthcare provider. A new campaign, called "This is Health Care," shows celebrities and other women discussing how Planned Parenthood provided them with necessary health services. But Planned Parenthood has a tendency to fudge statistics and bloat the facts about the provision of health care that women need - and fails to give accurate details about some of the procedures it most commonly performs. Namely, abortion.
Kavanaugh Joins Liberals To Protect Pro-Planned Parenthood Ruling The Supreme Court declined to review three cases relating to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood at the state level Monday, over a vigorous dissent from Justice Clarence Thomas. The dissent was significant because it indicates that Justice Brett Kavanaugh sided with the high court's liberal wing to deny review of a lower court decision that favored the nation's largest abortion provider.
Record count reported for mysterious paralyzing illness his year has seen a record number of cases of a mysterious paralyzing illness in children, U.S. health officials said Monday It's still not clear what's causing the kids to lose the ability to move their face, neck, back, arms or legs. The symptoms tend to occur about a week after the children had a fever and respiratory illness. No one has died from the rare disease this year, but it was blamed for one death last year and it may have caused others in the past.
State Sen. Kevin Parker says he hopes his proposal sparks discussion about how to balance public safety and online privacy. The Brooklyn Democrat noted that mass killers often provide warning signs through their social media posts, as in the case of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting suspect, who ranted online that Jews were "children of Satan."
Marc Lamont Hill and the Soviet's Ongoing War Against Israel
On November 28, 2018, Temple University professor and then-CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill advocated the elimination of the Jewish State of Israel in his prepared remarks before the United Nations. The pundit's decision to use a chant employed by genocidal terrorist groups like Hamas received widespread media coverage and likely prompted CNN to sever ties. It also received widespread applause from Hill's audience: the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People (CEIRPP).

On Thursday, the IDF presented the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon with its first concrete evidence of the tunnels, while the head of UNIFIL's mission Major-General Stefano Del Col visited northern Israel with a technical team.
US fails to win enough support at UN to condemn Hamas
A US attempt to get the United Nations to condemn violence by Palestinian militant group Hamas for the first time failed on Thursday because the draft resolution fell short of votes needed in the General Assembly, Reuters reports.
The resolution required two-thirds support and while Assembly resolutions are non-binding, they can carry political weight. The US text received 87 votes in favour, 58 against, 32 abstentions and 16 countries did not vote.
But now, after a year of testing and analysis by chess grandmasters, the machine has developed a new style of play unlike anything ever seen before, suggesting the program is now improvising like a human.
Ebola spreads to major Congo city as vaccines a concern The second-largest Ebola outbreak in history has spread to a major city in eastern Congo, as health experts worry whether the stock of an experimental vaccine will stand up to the demands of an epidemic with no end in sight.
Butembo, with more than 1 million residents, is now reporting cases of the deadly hemorrhagic fever. That complicates Ebola containment work already challenged by rebel attacks elsewhere that have made tracking the virus almost impossible in some isolated villages.

China Likens CFO Arrest to Declaration of War
China's state-run newspaper claims the arrest of a Chinese CFO in Canada, at the request of U.S. authorities, is "basically a kidnapping" and even a declaration of war.

New satellite images obtained exclusively by CNN reveal North Korea has significantly expanded a key long-range missile base located in the mountainous interior of the country, offering yet another reminder that diplomatic talks with the US have done little to prevent Kim Jong Un from pursuing his promise to mass produce and deploy the existing types of nuclear warheads in his arsenal.
Sen. Hirono: Our Problem is 'We Democrats Know So Much'
In explaining why Democrats seem to have difficulty in connecting with voters, liberal Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) said it was because they speak more to the brain instead of the heart, that "Democrats know so much" and tend to be "very left-brain."

Baby Jesus In Cage As Part Of Dedham Church's Immigration-Themed Nativity Scene It's an unconventional take on the nativity scene at St. Susanna's Parish Dedham. The baby Jesus is in a cage, the wise men are closed off by a wall. For the parish, the creche is meant to be thought provoking. "We try to take a picture of the world as it is and put it together with a Christmas message," said Pastor Fr. Stephen Josoma.
USC students asked if they love U.S., say 'America is trash' When students on the University of Southern California (USC) campus were asked if the love or hate the United States, many of the answers received from the future leaders of America are being viewed as a cause for concern. Hate for America appears to be a growing trend for young Americans coming out of a school system dominated by politically correct educators dedicated to indoctrinating youth in ultra-left ideologies. SAUL ALINSKY AND SATAN ARE WINNING.
Bishop wallops own LGBT-affirming denomination over sin A lone Episcopal bishop is holding true to biblical beliefs about marriage and sexuality, and a conservative Anglican group is grateful for his unpopular stance in the liberal denomination. A pro-homosexual resolution that passed earlier this year by the Episcopal Church General Convention is being described as a "compromise" for bishops who refuse to officiate a same-gender marriage ceremony.

In the Middle East, Russia is back
There's a new power rising in the Middle East, and it needs to be wooed. Three decades after the Soviet Union collapsed and the United States emerged as the undisputed superpower in the Middle East, a resurgent Russia is back. Under the personal direction of Putin, Russia is stepping into the vacuum left by the disengagement of the Obama administration and the unpredictability of the Trump one to challenge the United States' dominant role in the region.

'Whiteness' Forum Denounces The Christian Cartoon 'VeggieTales' As Racist
Apparently, as the Christian cartoon "VeggieTales" was teaching children about the Bible, it was also secretly teaching them to hate people of color.
According to The College Fix, Cal State San Marcos held a so-called "Whiteness Forum" last Thursday where a variety of topics pertaining to America's systemic racism was discussed. The two-hour event featured more than a dozen poster board projects critiquing various aspects of society. On top of lambasting the NFL and white women for perpetuating racism, the cartoon where talking vegetables perform biblical stories for children somehow found its way into the discussion, with speakers alleging it portrays racial stereotypes.
A college president turns a chicken sandwich into an intellectual adversary The most recent evidence of the intellectual insanity running rampant on today's campuses comes from Rider University in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, where President Gregory Dell'Omo took the bold and courageous stand of protecting his precious little corner of intellectual inquiry from the evil influence of one of the greatest threats to academic liberty ever known to man: Chick-fil-A.

Suicide, at 50-year peak, pushes down US life expectancy
Suicides and drug overdoses pushed up U.S. deaths last year, and drove a continuing decline in how long Americans are expected to live. Overall, there were more than 2.8 million U.S. deaths in 2017, or nearly 70,000 more than the previous year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday. It was the most deaths in a single year since the government began counting more than a century ago. SATAN MUST BE PLEASED.
U.S. Life Expectancy Falls Further Data the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released on Thursday show life expectancy fell by one-tenth of a year, to 78.6 years, pushed down by the sharpest annual increase in suicides in nearly a decade and a continued rise in deaths from powerful opioid drugs like fentanyl.

Fearful of bias, Google blocks gender-based pronouns from new AI tool
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) Google in May introduced a slick feature for Gmail that automatically completes sentences for users as they type. Tap out "I love" and Gmail might propose "you" or "it." But users are out of luck if the object of their affection is "him" or "her."
Google's technology will not suggest gender-based pronouns because the risk is too high that its "Smart Compose" technology might predict someone's sex or gender identity incorrectly and offend users, product leaders revealed to Reuters in interviews.

Lulu and Nana: First genetically modified babies born in China, researcher says
It will be years, perhaps a decade at least, before Lulu and Nana can begin to understand how they are different from the rest of us. Born this month in China, the twin girls are said to carry genes -- strands of DNA code -- that were altered for HIV-immunity with an "editing" tool when they were still single-cell embryos not yet inside their mother's womb. At least that's what He Jiankui, one of the researchers involved, says.

He was referring to the blockade of Qatar and the problems of Lebanon, Syria, Libya and Yemen while addressing a special session on the sidelines of the Mediterranean Dialogue Conference in Rome on Thursday.
CLAIM: Every human spawned from single couple 200,000 years ago... All modern humans descended from a solitary pair who lived 100,000 to 200,000 years ago, scientists say. Scientists surveyed the genetic 'bar codes' of five million animals - including humans - from 100,000 different species and deduced that we sprang from a single pair of adults after a catastrophic event almost wiped out the human race. YET ANOTHER PIECE OF EVIDENCE THAT ADAM AND EVE WERE REAL AND WE ALL CAME FROM THEM.
Beijing to Judge Every Resident Based on Behavior by End of 2020 China's plan to judge each of its 1.3 billion people based on their social behavior is moving a step closer to reality, with Beijing set to adopt a lifelong points program by 2021 that assigns personalized ratings for each resident.
The capital city will pool data from several departments to reward and punish some 22 million citizens based on their actions and reputations by the end of 2020, according to a plan posted on the Beijing municipal government's website on Monday. Those with better so-called social credit will get "green channel" benefits while those who violate laws will find life more difficult.
61 Percent of Christians Believe in These 4 New Age Ideas... It's common knowledge that the New Age movement has a strong foothold on our culture right now.

Clemson University workshop: 'What gender is this apple?' Clemson University students were just treated to a workshop at the Harvey and Lucinda Gantt Multicultural Center, titled "Create Your Own Gender Adventure," during which they - as the title suggests - discussed and debated how the traditional birth determinations of male versus female, girl versus boy, are out-of-touch, antiquated pooh-pooh labels, quite unnecessary in these advanced modern times.
But others defended the classic special, pointing out its creator Charles Schulz fought to add Franklin to the cast to stand up against racism in 1968. "Seriously please get some historical context. Charles M. Schultz was a trailblazer and bucked racism in those days by adding Franklin to reflect the issue... and challenging what was then going on in society," tweeted California radio show host Mark Larson.

INSANE: ACLU Now Opposes Accused Students Having So Many Rights, All To Bash Trump
On Friday, the American Civil Liberties Union came out against the Title IX reforms proposed by the Trump Department of Education, led by Betsy Devos.
