The Israel Border Police´s vaunted YAMAM counter-terrorist unit on Tuesday stormed a building in Hebron that was housing the wanted Palestinians suspected of kidnapping and murdering three yeshiva students in June. In the raid, the team of crack commandos exchanged gunfire with the wanted Palestinians, killing them. Israel had vowed to track down Marwan Kawasme and Amer Abu Aysha, the two Hamas operatives who in June abducted Gil-Ad Shaer,16, Eyal Yifrah, 19, and Naftali Fraenkel, 16, three yeshiva students who were hitchhiking near Hebron. A massive manhunt ensued, with police and military forces combing the area near Hebron in search

The Biggest Threat To The U.S.

WASHINGTON — An Al-Qaeda-connected group that the Obama administration has targeted with airstrikes alongside ISIS was almost totally unknown to the American public until the U.S. started bombing them, though sources say the group has been known to the administration and to Congress for some time. The U.S. claims that Khorasan, an Al-Qaeda-linked terrorist group said to be led by an operative named Muhsin al-Fadhli, was a direct threat to the U.S homeland. Little is known about al-Fadhli, though the Department of State says he was based in Iran. But hardly any public information was available about the group before

The leader of Hezbollah said on Tuesday he opposed US-led air strikes on Syria, where his Lebanese Shi´ite Muslim group has been fighting alongside forces loyal to President Bashar Assad. Hassan Nasrallah, whose group is one of the most important helping Assad fight a Sunni-dominated insurgency, was speaking after strikes against Islamic State (IS) and other groups in Lebanon´s neighbor Syria. "We are against American military intervention and an international coalition in Syria, whether that (action) is against the regime or IS," Nasrallah said in a speech aired on Hezbollah-run al-Manar television.

No jail time for Dinesh D’Souza
Legal Insurrection, by William A. Jacobson     Original Article

Prosecutors had sought up to 16 months jail for Dinesh D’Souza, who pleaded guilty to a campaign finance violation. But a federal judge today ruled that there would be no jail time. Via The Smoking Gun: Conservative writer/filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza was spared prison time today when a federal judge sentenced him to five years probation for violating campaign finance laws. For the first eight months of his probation term, D’Souza will have to live in a “community confinement center” in San Diego, ordered Judge Richard Berman, who also fined D’Souza $30,000 and directed him to undergo “therapeutic counseling.” D’Souza will

Obama to UN : Climate Change Our Fault

On Tuesday, shortly after announcing to the American public that the United States was now bombing ISIS in Syria, the President of the United States flew to New York to address the United Nations – on climate change. His speech mixed high-flown sentiment with apologies for America, and pledged American sacrifice in the name of a lofty goal without evidence that such sacrifice would in any way contribute to attaining that goal. In other words, it was a typical Barack Obama whirligig. Even as American warplanes struck targets in Syria, even as regimes tottered in Jordan and Iraq and Yemen,

One of them—the last—was less good, given he had gone MIA for the better part of three weeks and I had a sneaking suspicion he had a girlfriend. We hadn’t slept together, but the kisses had been the type of kisses you walk away from with shaky knees and blind hope. There was something there, and we both knew it, which is why we are attempting to hash things out over the phone at some ungodly hour.

No substantive changes have resulted from a meeting Saturday between Bishop Michael Warfel, leader of the Catholic Diocese of Great Falls – Billings, and parishioners of St. Leo the Great Catholic Church regarding the suspension of church privileges for two gay parishioners in Lewistown.

It also includes participation in gainful employment, employment search efforts, vocational training, treatment, community

It’s hard to imagine that any school would have a problem with a book about a Christian family that helped Jews escape the Holocaust. But Springs Charter Schools in Temecula, Calif., not only had a problem with “The Hiding Place,” they also took issue with any other book that was written by a Christian author or included a Christian message. “We do not purchase sectarian educational materials and do not allow sectarian materials on our state-authorized lending shelves,” Superintendent Kathleen Hermsmeyer wrote in a letter to attorneys at the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI).

Why Clorox Is Shutting

Clorox (NYSE:CLX), the maker of household products such as Pine Sol and Glad, announced the shutdown of its Venezuela division and is looking to sell the assets of discontinued operations. Shares of the company were up 5.9% in the stock market today. Clorox Venezuela said it had been selling products at a loss because of almost three years of the government-mandated price freeze on two-thirds of its products and triple-digit inflation that pushed up input expenses. "Clorox Venezuela repeatedly met with government authorities to help them understand the rapidly declining state of the business, including the need for immediate, significant and ongoing price

Health officials in West Texas have begun testing some babies for tuberculosis after the revelation that more than 700 infants at an El Paso hospital were exposed to a worker found to have the disease. The children may have been exposed at a nursery in the Providence Memorial Hospital of El Paso between September 2013 and last month, when a health care worker tested positive for TB. (Snip) Saldivar said local health officials do not know why the worker was not tested by the hospital until Aug. 21 if the person had symptoms as early as December. Also, officials are still investigating how and when the worker became infected,

Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza was sentenced on Tuesday to spend eight months in a community confinement center during five years of probation after pleading guilty to a campaign finance law violation. The defendant, a frequent critic of President Barack Obama, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan. He was also given a $30,000 fine and ordered to do one day of community service a week during his probation. D´Souza, 53, admitted in May to illegally reimbursing two ´straw donors´ who donated $10,000 each to the unsuccessful 2012 U.S. Senate campaign in New York of Wendy Long, a

The Lost Art of Political Persuasion

Persuasion used to matter in politics. A good politician was someone with the inclination — and the skill — to convince people who weren’t among his supporters to endorse his preferred policy or legislation. There are many ways to accomplish this. Lyndon Johnson operated at the retail level, so to speak. Johnson was a master at twisting arms in the Senate, and cajoling members on both sides of the aisle into forming a coalition to pass whatever legislation he wanted. In contrast, Ronald Reagan worked wholesale. He had a genius for convincing millions of voters he was right and — through

On Tuesday morning, The View’s “conservative” co-host Nicolle Wallace gave a ringing endorsement for Governor Chris Christie (R-N.J.) should he decide to run for president in 2016. Unfortunately for the New Jersey governor, her reasons for supporting him probably won’t help him win over many Republican primary voters. During a discussion about Chris Christie’s 2016 prospects, Wallace eagerly threw her hat in for the New Jersey Republican and proclaimed that “his politics are an interesting and progressive and modern swath of the country and I’d like to see him in.”

The Republican Party’s top leader in Congress is catching flak for a comment that appears to call the jobless lazy – a comment that has rekindled an old challenge for the party: appearing insensitive or uncaring toward Americans who are poor or in financial difficulty. House Speaker John Boehner was asked after a speech last week to comment on a plan for addressing poverty – promoted by a Republican colleague, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. Speaker Boehner gave a response that was favorable toward Representative Ryan´s plan, but not so favorable about Americans’ work ethic.

A memorial to slain teenager Michael Brown burned down Monday night, according to Ferguson fire officials. It is not known what caused the fire, though the candles kept lit in vigil around it may be to blame. The memorial was assembled over one month ago at the scene of Brown’s death. Brown, unarmed, was shot during a confrontation by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, an action that catalyzed weeks of protests over racial profiling and the militarization of police. According to MSNBC’s Trymaine Lee, at least one nearby resident suspected foul play: “They light candles every night with no problem,” the

  



Why is your face unique?

Why is each human face unique? It´s a question a child might ask. The tempting response for a harried parent is, "Just because." After all, no two products of nature, be they clouds, snowflakes, or fingerprints, are exact duplicates. Mother Nature is no Henry Ford; those variations in shape, color, and texture are just part of the production process. (Snip) Your face, they say, is what biologists call a signal, a mechanism that, like the shimmering tail of a peacock or the Day-Glo skin of a poison frog, sends a message to other organisms about who you are. But how could one possibly test this hypothesis?

The U.S. launched eight airstrikes Monday night against a little-known, al-Qaida-affiliated militant group in Syria. The United States Central Command said Tuesday morning that American forces hit the Khorasan Group near Aleppo to stop "imminent attack-planning against the United States and Western interests." At a Pentagon press briefing shortly after, defense officials explained just how imminent such an attack may have been. "The intelligence reports indicated that the Khorasan Group was in the final stages of plans to execute major attacks against Western targets and potentially the U.S. homeland," said Lt. Gen. William Mayville, the director of operations for the
