Hamas tried on Sunday to deny that it was behind the kidnapping and murder of IDF officer Hadar Goldin. [Snip] With the statement. Abu-Zuhri contradicted comments Friday by another Hamas spokesperson, Mousa Abu-Marzouk, who said that Hamas had indeed captured the soldier and was holding him hostage. Speaking to Hamas TV, Abu-Marzouk named the soldier as Goldin hours before Israel officially acknowledged he was missing, and announced his name. The claim that Israel violated the cease-fire was also contradicted by international reporters on the scene in Gaza. Reporters on international news channels, including Fox and CNN, said that Gaza had

Last Monday evening, the IDF Squad Commanders´ School Regiment--the 828th Regiment--encountered terrorists who emerged from a tunnel near the Karni crossing. The force eliminated one terrorist and lost five of its men. In the course of the subsequent neutralization of the tunnel, many weapons were found inside it, including RPGs, mortar shells, explosives, and Kalachnikov rifles. In addition, three motorcycles were found. They were facing Israel and were meant for carrying out a sophisticated attack on Israeli communities. [Snip] The tunnel was a particularly large one, walled with cement, and is believed to have taken four years to

Russian official mocks Obama’s

Russia’s deputy prime minister took a swipe at President Obama’s masculinity on Thursday after the U.S. leader announced long-threatened sanctions meant to cripple the Russian economy. Russia’s Dmitry Rogozin tweeted side-by-side images of Mr. Obama and President Vladimir Putin — the U.S. president holding a tiny, white, fluffy dog, and Mr. Putin posing with a Persian leopard. “We have different values and allies,” read Mr. Rogozin’s caption, which was retweeted more than 3,000 times. Not everyone bought the comparison, however. “Yes, that dog didn’t have to be tranquilized for a posed shot. Our values are different,

Exactly 100 years ago tomorrow, Britain stumbled into a war that would change the face not just of this country but of the whole of Europe, for ever. Its consequences would spread far beyond the continent where it was fought, initiating almost a century of upheaval, revolution, bloodshed and conflict unimaginable to the Britons who cheered when we decided to fight the Kaiser on August 4, 1914. It is no exaggeration to say that the effects of the Great War are still being felt. It isn’t just that so many families remember great uncles or grandparents or great-grandparents who lie

Secret Service agents rarely speak, but there’s nothing wrong with their hearing. Agents confessed to Ronald Kessler, author of an upcoming blockbuster book about the hidden lives of presidents, that they have overheard Michelle Obama pushing her husband ‘to be more aggressive in attacking Republicans and to side with blacks in racial controversies.’ And Obama did as he was told, says Kessler in The First Family Detail.When Trayvon Martin, the unarmed black teenager, was shot dead by a neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida on the night of February 26, 2012. ´That could have been me thirty-five years

The head of the Centers for Disease Control moved Sunday to ease fears over the return of two African missionaries infected with Ebola, insisting that an outbreak of the deadly virus is highly unlikely in the United States. CDC director Tom Frieden, making the rounds on the Sunday news shows, said that U.S. public health protocols are far more stringent and effective than those being used in the three West African nations, where a combined 729 people have died of Ebola. “I don’t think it’s in the cards that we would have widespread Ebola in this country,” Mr. Frieden said on CBS-TV’s “Face the Nation.” He said the outbreak in Africa has

CONCORD, N.H. — The man charged with kidnapping a teenager nine months ago is very bright, has strong opinions and thrives on conflict, according to a police officer who had two decades of contact with him. Former Conway Lt. Chris Perley, who left the force in April after 29 years, has known 34-year-old Nathaniel Kibby since the kidnapping suspect was 12 years old. (Snip)Perley said his most recent dealing with Kibby was over a summons for running a red light. "He thought he should be entitled to (run the light) because he went to work at such early hours," Perley said.

An entrepreneur has gambled his home on building a toll road after becoming frustrated at council delays in clearing a commuter route blocked by a landslip. Mike Watts is charging motorists £2 per journey to use his bypass made from rolled chippings and avoid the closed section of the A431 between Bath and Bristol. A landslip in February forced the closure of Kelston Road and, while Bath and North East Somerset Council said it has begun repairs costing £1.5million, the road is not due to re-open until Christmas.

Other embassies, including America´s, has already closed down and pulled out staff. The British ambassador, Michael Aron, and his key diplomats had stayed on but on Friday the Foreign Office also decided to close from Monday.

A reporter for France 24, Gallagher Fenwick, was reporting from Gaza Friday and explaining how its residents´ “food security” has been affected by the fighting there, when something unexpected happened. (snip) "This was a rocket,”, a rattled Fenwick told his audience, “this was a rocket, rockets were just shot right next to where we are standing, so I´m not going to stand here very long because usually there´s a strike just moments after this occurs.” The occurrence proves Israel´s contention that Hamas fires rockets from among civilians, using them as human shields and manipulating any civilian casualties that are thus

Gay leaders are expressing alarm at the just-released numbers from the Center for Disease Control that place the percentage of Americans identifying as homosexual at only 1.6% of the adult population. That would mean the total number of gays in American is roughly 3.8 million, roughly 1.5 million less than the total number of American Methodists. Scout, who goes by one name, a spokesman for CenterLink´s Network of LGBT Health Equity, told the Washington Post, "The truth is, numbers matter, and political influence matters." Most Americans believe the population of gays is exponentially larger. For almost half a century,

The situation outside the White House mirrors the situation inside it. On Saturday, a national march for Gaza took place in front of the White House. A pro-Israeli counter-protester (U.S. Marine and Iraq War veteran Manny Vega) was standing on 16th and H Streets with Israeli and American flags. This is where the video begins recording. He was punched, pulled, kicked, and even spat on. Manny Vega had participated in the takedown of memorial barricades during Obama’s shutdown. Manny Vega, an undeterred retired U.S. Marine and Iraq War veteran, spoke to Breitbart News about the incident. “What brought me out here is this sort of

The UNRWA is on the front lines of the Hamas War in Gaza. In the headlines, its schools are forever being fired on or found to be stockpiling rockets. If individual Gazans are being used as human shields, the UNRWA often seems as if it is one big organizational human shield. But the UNRWA isn’t Hamas’ human shield. The UNRWA is Hamas. (Snip) Why does Hamas, which is obsessed with brainwashing the next generation into martyrdom, allow a foreign organization to run an educational system for 232,000 pupils? It’s because in Gaza, Hamas and the UNRWA are the same thing. The UNRWA’s Gaza staff has its own union.

CNN anchor Candy Crowley called out Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) Sunday for claiming that illegal immigrants crossing the Rio Grande have committed thousands of homicides. Perry said his constituents in Texas are concerned about “the 90 percent-plus of individuals who don’t get talked about enough that are coming into the United States illegally and committing substantial crimes.” He said that the 203,000 illegal immigrants who have come into Texas since 2008 and booked into Texas county jails have been responsible for over 3,000 homicides and almost 8,000 sexual assaults.

GameStop stores in the city received a mandate from corporate headquarters after Philadelphia police requested they implement harsher security measures, gaming blog Kotaku reported. GameStop says it is following a local law that allows them to collect fingerprints, which then go into a database used by law enforcement to help track down people selling stolen goods, a local CBS affiliate reported. Customers outside one GameStop in Center City weren’t too pleased with the new policy. “I really don’t appreciate it. You fingerprinted me like I’m in a police district. No, I’m at a game store,” a customer told the station.

White House officials are downplaying stories that President Obama is prepared to take executive action on immigration that would allow millions of undocumented people to stay in the United States. "The reports you´re seeing are uninformed speculation," White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said on ABC´s This Week with George Stephanopoulos. Pfeiffer said Obama asked the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security to "present him with recommendations by the end of the summer." Those agencies have not yet reported back. "So let´s wait and see what those are before we make judgments about them," Pfeiffer

Republicans believe that the deepening crisis in Gaza could ultimately loosen the grip that the Democratic Party has traditionally held upon American Jewish voters. While declarations of a rift between Democrats and the Jewish community have proven premature in the past, things could be different this time, they assert. Just in the last week, the Obama administration used unusually strong language to condemn the shelling of a United Nations-run school in Gaza, apparently by the Israeli military, and drafted a document for a cease-fire that Israeli officials denounced as favoring Hamas.

If you get tired of mud-slinging in the pigpens and fast-talking from the carnival barkers at the Iowa State Fair, you´ll have plenty of chances this month to take refuge with the politicians. The Des Moines Register´s political soapbox will return to the fair Aug. 7 through 16, with a long list of state and national political figures scheduled to appear. Iowa Republican Gov. Terry Branstad and Democratic challenger Jack Hatch are on the bill. So are Bruce Braley and Joni Ernst, the Democrat and Republican facing off in one of the most heated U.S. Senate races of the year.

Something rather dangerous is happening in American politics right now, all the more so for being taken for granted by many of the people watching it unfold. I do not mean the confusion of House Republicans, or the general gridlock in Congress, which are impeding legislative action on the child migrant crisis (among other matters). Incompetence and gridlock are significant problems, indeed severe ones, but they’re happening within the context of a constitutional system that allows for — and can survive — congressional inaction. What is different — more cynical and more destructive — is the course President Obama is

Following statements from Representative Steve King (R-IA) that President Barack Obama was creating a “constitutional crisis” with his executive actions on immigration that would ultimately leave the House with no choice but impeachment, Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked Representative Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) how the GOP’s impeachment chatter was different than bills filed by the Democrats to impeach George W Bush. “It’s completely different,” Jeffries said. “Then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) clearly said impeachment is off the table.” “Basically that’s what [House Speaker] John Boehner (R-OH) said this week, too,” Wallace said.

Procedural changes impede the chamber’s traditional deliberative function Americans hold the Senate in low esteem, but the situation is even worse than most understand. The Senate is dysfunctional today because its current leadership has acted to destroy the institution itself. Job-approval ratings for Congress have been in the teens or single digits for more than three years. A poll last year found that Congress is less popular than head lice, root canals and traffic jams. The “good” news is that Congress is slightly more popular than playground bullies, telemarketers and North Korea.

Gov. Rick Perry of Texas recently ordered 1,000 Texas National Guard troops to the state’s border with Mexico to assist the Border Patrol in responding to the growing crisis of illegal entry.[SNIP]The only problem is that Perry’s deployment order is symbolic, not serious, and it won’t do any good until it becomes serious. It is unlikely that Perry is any more likely than any other politician to put his own personal interest second, and the needs of the nation first, but the fact of the matter is we don’t need 1,000 troops on the border, we need 10,000, maybe more.

When he left Guatemala, 16-year-old Jonas Cua thought the professional smugglers his family had hired would get him across the border and on a van to his uncle in Hudson County. But he soon learned otherwise. The smugglers, known as coyotes, told him and the other teens and children traveling with him that when they reached the United States they would be left for U.S. immigration officials to find. And sure enough, his trip was cut short in Texas, where he was detained by Border Patrol agents. (Snip) On Friday, Cua reached his uncle, who lives in Hudson County,
