Every year, thousands of Shia worshippers take part in the ceremonies, performed to mourn the death of Husayn ibn Ali, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad. The commemorations take place on Ashura, the tenth day of the first month of the Islamic calendar. They mark Husayn's death at the Battle of Karbala, fought between Husayn and Yazid I on October 10 680AD to determine who should succeed the prophet as the leader of Islam.

Positively Darwinian. Violently holding on to a family feud some 1400 years later. Anyone one ever wonder why no scientific advances or even world class universities exist within this world. They are so anti-science that they make excellent democrats.

Faith in what, the functionality of a knife? If there is any doubt that Islam is an insane cult, it has been removed by the practitioners themselves. If they are cutting heads to look for brains they are going to come away disappointed. It would serve society better if they would cut off the male reproductive organs.

So the would-be successors of Muhammad FOUGHT to see who would lead the Prophet's people. In Christianity, after Jesus had died, was risen from the dead, and then ascended into heaven, 11 apostles met to determine who would fill the gap left by Judas Iscariot, who had betrayed Jesus into the hands of his murderers and who had subsequently committed suicide from the resulting sense of guilt. The 11 apostles had two candidates from which to choose. To do so, they cast lots -- they rolled the dice or drew straws essentially. Who would be the lucky winner? Given the fact that all but two of those 12 apostles were martyred the "lucky winner" wasn't so lucky after all. And at least one of those two who were not martyred suffered arrest and exile. For Christians, leadership is supposed to be about self-sacrifice in service to others in need. Christian leaders who challenge the injustices of society often pay a heavy price.

Authorities have upped charges against five people accused of burglarizing the USS Ling in Hackensack, who are now charged with flooding the historic submarine during two break-ins last summer, allegedly causing damage in the hundreds of thousands, according to the submarine’s trustees. An eight-count indictment from July 9 added counts of conspiracy and knowingly causing a flood, both second-degree crimes, to the burglary and criminal mischief charges the five so-called urban explorers faced for allegedly stealing artifacts from the WWII-era vessel. Police initially declined to charge the group with flooding the Ling with 10 feet of water during the alleged burglaries, citing insufficient evidence on when the flooding occurred.

WASHINGTON – The report of a new sexual misconduct allegation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has sparked fury among figures on both the left and right. In a Sunday morning tweet, President Donald Trump accused the "LameStream Media" and Democrats of colluding to scare Kavanaugh "into turning Liberal." And on the left, presidential candidates Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., called for Kavanaugh's impeachment. Harris had voted against Kavanaugh's confirmation in October 2018. Kavanaugh had been confirmed by a 50-48 Senate vote last October despite a bitter nomination process. Christine Blasey Ford had

I thought we'd at least get Oprah. President Trump's victory was supposed to be the start of a new era of celebrity politics in America. He proved that a candidate with no political experience but substantial name recognition can win — that fame is, for many Americans, reason enough to give a campaign a serious hearing. For 2020, I anticipated the Democratic Party would respond in kind, and I don't think I'm alone in that expectation. My colleague Matthew Walther made the case this past spring that a celebrity challenger might well be Democrats' strongest tactic against

Asked recently why he was running for president, Joe Biden insisted to a reporter that burning ambition was not the reason. “Could I die happily not having heard ‘Hail to the Chief’ play for me?” Biden asked, then answered his own question by saying, “Yeah, I could.” That’s good to know because it will make the next step easier. It’s the step where Biden announces he’s withdrawing from the race. Yes, yes, I’m aware that he’s the front-runner for the Democrats’ nomination and that front-runners never exit voluntarily. But I’m also aware that Biden knows something else, too: that growing concerns about his mental and physical capacity are legitimate.

WASHINGTON President Donald Trump ousted John Bolton in part due to frustration with his third national security adviser’s guidance to pair military power with economic pressure against Venezuela, according to current and former administration officials. One senior administration official said that Trump had grown weary of repeated vows from Bolton that Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro would be out of office in short order. A second official said that they had clashed over Bolton’s efforts to advance planning for military intervention. That official pointed to the administration’s national security strategy, which predated Bolton’s tenure and called for “strong diplomatic engagement” to isolate rogue nations in the Western Hemisphere. “That has been

Joe Biden drew on the loss of his own infant daughter in a speech marking the 56th anniversary of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Alabama, connecting the attack with persistent issues of race and the rise of white nationalism under President Trump. “Hate is on the rise again and we are at a defining moment in American history again,” the former vice president said Sunday from the pulpit of the church in Birmingham, Alabama, where four black girls were killed more than half-a-century ago. “Hate only hides, it doesn’t go away.”
