JERUSALEM — An Israeli soldier who the military feared had been abducted by Hamas gunmen in a firefight Friday that shattered a temporary cease-fire in Gaza was declared dead Sunday, just hours after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signaled that military operations against Palestinian militants would continue. “We will take as much time as necessary, and will exert as much force as needed,” Netanyahu said Saturday. He said that Hamas will pay “an intolerable price” for its attacks. Earlier, Israeli officials had said they would not send representatives to negotiations planned for Sunday in Cairo, and reports circulated in the

Jon Voight Pens Letter to ´Ignorant´
Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz on Israel:
´Hang Your Heads in Shame´ (Guest Column)

My name is Jon Voight and I am more than angry, I am heartsick that people like Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem could incite anti-Semitism all over the world and are oblivious to the damage they have caused. They are obviously ignorant of the whole story of Israel’s birth, when in 1948 the Jewish people were offered by the UN a portion of the land originally set aside for them in 1921, and the Arab Palestinians were offered the other half. The Arabs rejected the offer, and the Jews accepted, only to be attacked by five surrounding Arab countries committed to driving them into the sea. But the Israelis won.

Hops, barley, and malt are all important ingredients for beer. But water is essential. As California enters yet another month of an unprecedented dry spell, some brewers are expressing concerns about how the ongoing drought could affect the price and taste of their product. "The future is the thing we have to worry about now,” Dan Gordon, co-founder of Gordon Biersch Brewing Company in San Jose, said. Gordon said the brewery uses 2.5 gallons of water to make one gallon of beer. Most craft breweries use four to seven gallons of water for the same amount. If water companies impose mandatory restrictions,

Just as Yasir Arafat orchestrated the Intifada of 2000 while ostensibly talking Peace in Camp David, Hamas has been planning a massive Tunnel War ever since Operation Cast Lead in 2008. There have been reports that this was supposed to happen on the Jewish New Year but was pre-empted by Israel´s Defensive Action--"Operation Protective Edge". [Snip] Its stockpiling of rockets in schools, mosques, hospitals, and UN installations was all part of a very well thought out strategy to curry world sympathy to tie Israel´s hands when defensive action by Israel would be taken. The Tunnel network, is so vast and

Britain has just two ‘ebola-proof’ hospital beds, The Mail on Sunday has learnt. Official guidance states that patients with the highly infectious disease--which has no vaccine, no cure and kills up to 90 percent of victims--should be treated in specially built units that are biologically secure. Yet there is only one operational High Secure Infectious Diseases Unit (HSIDU) in the UK, at the Royal Free Hospital in London. It has two beds. A second, at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle, is ‘being redeveloped’ according to NHS England. Should Britain have more than two ebola patients at any one time,

DENVER - Marijuana joined roses and dahlias Friday in blue ribbon events at the nation´s first county fair to allow pot competitions. This weekend´s Denver County Fair includes a 21-and-over "Pot Pavilion" where winning entries for plants, bongs, edible treats and clothes made from hemp are on display. There is no actual weed at the fairgrounds. Instead, fairgoers will see photos of the competing pot plants and marijuana-infused foods. A sign near the entry warns patrons not to consume pot at the fair. A speed joint-rolling contest uses oregano, not pot. The only real stuff allowed at the event? Doritos,

According to Saturday´s White House pool report, America shouldn´t be worrying about a fierce Ebola outbreak, our porous borders being overrun by tens of thousands of foreign unknowns, Russian adventurism, Iran´s nuke fetish, or Israel´s current struggle against an existential threat to its very existence -- because President Obama´s not worrying.

The Mouse that Roared was a 1955 literary satire which revolved around a tiny fictional duchy that ends up holding the world to ransom in midst of the Cold War. A sinister variation on yesteryear’s wacky theme appears to be enacted right now with diminutive Qatar – international terrorism’s single greatest bankroller – avidly wooed by the West and getting its own way. It needs be stressed that Qatar, which sways democracies, is not remotely democratic and its leadership is unelected. (Snip) Qatar has become a particular favorite of the Obama administration, which bolsters Qatari pretensions to parade as an

AKRON, Ohio -- Asked after his round Saturday at Firestone Country Club which holes he was the most pleased about through three rounds of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Tiger Woods went the humorous route. "The 19th," he quipped. He smiled, but for Woods it was another day of frustration at a place where he has so often dominated. (Snip)"If I could just hit the ball a little better," Woods lamented. "I hit it pretty decent today, which was nice, I just didn´t (putt) well at all again. I couldn´t get comfortable with my setup and it just kind of worked out that way."

Former Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank questioned President Obama’s honesty regarding the rollout of Obamacare in a recent interview. He told The Huffington Post on Friday that he was shocked at the mishandling of the new health care law. “The rollout was so bad, and I was appalled—I don’t understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis,” the former Democratic congressman told the website. “But frankly, he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn’t true. And you shouldn’t lie to people. And they just lied to people,”

Tiger Woods struggled to a two-over-par 72 during the third round of the Bridgestone Invitational on Saturday and lost his cool along the way when he cursed at a cameraman who was closely following the former No. 1 golfer in the world. Woods hit a shot from the rough after a wayward drive at No. 6 when he began walking up the fairway as a cameraman came dashing his way. Woods appeared to begin to swing his club in anger toward the ground when he realized the cameraman was too close for comfort. He then not-so-politely asked the cameraman to give

Has Hamas ever threatened to take your phone, laptop or camera? 6. Has Hamas ever taken the phone, laptop or camera of a colleague in Gaza? 7. Have you seen Hamas fighters in Gaza? 8. If yes, why have you not directly reported Hamas fighting activity when

Right now Russia is moving troops, armor, and advanced antiaircraft missiles toward the border with Ukraine. In the last 48 hours, dozens of videos have been uploaded to social-media sites that show Russian armor very close to the border, many of them confirmed to be within mere kilometers of Ukraine. On Thursday, my team at The Interpreter definitively geolocated Russian armor only 2,000 meters (and closing) from the border and a Buk, the same type of missile that likely took down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, only a few hours from being within range of Ukraine’s air force.

The IDF has destroyed Hamas's flagship terrorism project; its network of cross-border tunnels that snuck under the border into Israel. The military also began to pull its forces out of the Gaza Strip on Saturday evening. Hamas has spent five years preparing this strategic threat; the IDF wrecked 31 tunnels in two weeks. By Sunday, all of the tunnels the IDF knew about, or discovered during the offensive, will be destroyed. A few tunnels that Israel doesn't know about may remain intact. Many of the underground passages were designed to send heavily armed murder squads into Israeli villages for killing sprees, and attack army positions from
