Iranian-backed Houthi terrorists based in Yemen hijacked an Israeli-owed commercial vessel Sunday as it was in international waters. The Bahamas-flagged roll-on-roll-off ship auto-carrier disappeared from tracking systems just before noon GMT (6 a.m. EDT) while transiting the Red Sea in international waters. It is partially owned by Tel Aviv-based Ray Shipping Ltd, which operates a fleet of 65 pure car and truck carriers (PCTC). It has a crew of 22, none of whom are known to be Israeli. Yemen's Houthi terrorist organization, which styles itself "rebel," claimed responsibility. The Tehran-backed Houthis released a statement claiming responsibility,

Islamic pirates have been a problem for 500 years or more. Clearly still a problem.

I saw the video of the hijackers. They thought there were tough stuff storming an unarmed ship with all hands in the control rooms. I hope the hijackers get to meet up with some IDF special forces to test that tough attitude.

Something odd here. I’ve seen video on TikTok where Israelis deny that this was one of their ships. Even weirder, the whole taking of the ship appeared staged.

Is it a coincidence that the Houthis were able to accomplish the piracy after JRB provided funds to the Houthis? Gibb's rule 39 applies here.

Any commercial cargo ship that travels through Middle East waters should be heavily armed to be able to protect themselves. Yes, it would cost a lot of money but, cheaper than losing the ship.

Was it flying an Israeli flag? They say none of the crew members were Israeli. The ships are designed to carry vehicles. Could it have been the cargo--maybe Toyota pickups? If the owners want to get even they should send a ship full of GMs down there.

I saw the video. They came in by helicopter to an empty deck. I wonder if the helicopter is one left by the US in Afghanistan. Unfortunately this brings to mind the picture of some of our naval people on their knees when someone (Iran??) took over their vessel years ago.

Why does RED State lie?............ "The Prime Minister’s Office identified the vessel as a British ship being operated by a Japanese company that was “hijacked on an Iranian whim by the Houthi militia in Yemen.” It added there were 25 crew members on board from Ukraine, Bulgaria, the Philippines and Mexico, but no Israelis on the ship."

Well, look at that. Far-left Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon has been dropped by United Talent Agency (UTA) in the wake of her predictable outrageous antisemitic comments about how "a lot of people [are] afraid of being Jewish at this time, and are getting a taste of what it feels like to be a Muslim in this country." The lack of moral equivalence in Sarandon's comparison was ignorantly profound, but let's move on.

On Friday Night Speaker Mike Johnson fulfilled his commitment to release the security camera footage from the January 6, 2021 protests at the US Capitol. The first batch of video was released Friday afternoon. The Gateway Pundit previously reported that House Speaker Mike Johnson previously declared his intention to release thousands of hours of surveillance footage from the January 6, 2021, events at the U.S. Capitol. on Friday Johnson tweeted, “Today, I am keeping my promise to the American people and making all the January 6th tapes available to ALL Americans.” Of course, Democrats and Liz Cheney lost their minds! They know they are about to be exposed.

On January 6, 2021, four Trump supporters were killed. The sham January 6 Committee did not even investigate the deaths of these Trump supporters in their politicized investigation. The four Trump supporters were barely mentioned in passing in their final report. At least two other Trump supporters were nearly killed by police that day. Philip Anderson was knocked out, gassed, and smothered by police that day. J6 political prisoner Jake Lang dragged him to safety and saved his life.

We can't dance around this issue any longer: When it comes to antisemitism in the Western world, the face is wretchedly ugly and, in large part, female. It starts in the halls of Congress and oozes its insidious way onto college campuses and fills city streets. Too many women loathe Jews and support Hamas, and they need to be shamed for it. It is ignorant, it is evil ... and it is the antithesis of feminism. Rashida Tlaib, of course, distinguishes herself when it comes to Jew hatred; her smug face is the very embodiment of the dangerous "From the river to sea" slur that calls for the extermination of Israel

In its efforts to portray Donald Trump as the most despicable person ever, the Left slanders him daily in ways unprecedented in American history. If Trump makes an exaggeration, which he is prone to do, he's called a liar. When Trump achieved anything of note in office, the Left cherry-picked minor aspects that could be criticized and elevated beyond their stature. Those on the Right recognize the more profound, universal truths that Trump espouses. Hence, they attend his rallies by the tens of thousands. Hardly anyone is eager to attend a Joe Biden rally. Why?

An illegal alien convicted of raping a child in Brazil has been found living on Martha’s Vineyard, the elite island off the coast of Massachusetts, after having successfully crossed the United States-Mexico border. Saulo Cardosa, a 37-year-old illegal alien from Brazil, was arrested on Martha’s Vineyard by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents this month, according to Ted Daniel with Boston 25 News. In May 2019, Cardosa was convicted of raping a five-year-old child in Brazil and subsequently sentenced to 14 years in prison. Sometime after his conviction, Cardosa fled to the United States by illegally crossing the nation’s porous southern border where millions of “got-aways” enter, undetected by Border Patrol, every year.

I remember watching the show as a youngster in the '80s and have had tremendous respect for Burton’s commitment to encouraging children to read. But that respect is out the window now. Burton hosted the National Book Awards this week and remarked at the opening of the ceremony, "Before we get going, are there any Moms for Liberty in the house? No? Good.

Former Pink Floyd front man Roger Waters has been railing against Jews and Israel for decades, but it appears that his constant anti-Semitic rants are finally catching up to him after hotels in several South American countries refused to reserve a room for him to use during his upcoming concert tour of the area. Waters has been virulently anti-Israel for many years. He most recently raised eyebrows for being accused of wearing a “Nazi-like” uniform during a performance in Berlin, Germany, just this year.

The assessment, which was written by the New York State Intelligence Center, was first reported by CBS News. The report found that due to the increased violence in Israel with the bombardment of Gaza, there has been a rise in 'chatter' about possible terrorism targets in the Big Apple.

It comes after classical texts claim the emperor once said "call me not Lord, for I am a Lady". A museum spokesperson said it was "only polite and respectful to be sensitive to identifying pronouns for people in the past".

Hamas used Gaza City’s Shifa hospital as a base of terror operations. That’s the obvious conclusion following Sunday’s discovery of a large terror tunnel under the hospital along with videos of Hamas bringing Israeli hostages inside. Now comes an important question for Congress: Which US-funded international organizations knew the truth about Shifa and helped Hamas conceal its war crimes? The Israel Defense Forces this weekend discovered a tunnel beneath Shifa hospital that extends 10 meters down and 55 meters across — leading to what might be a booby-trapped door. Special units that specialize in handling explosives have been summoned to break through to the next section.
