The uncle of a young boy who was photographed gripping the severed head of a slain Syrian soldier says Australia should ´forget´ the image which has caused outrage. ´He´s gone, forget about it. He´s forgotten about youse. I´m sure you´ve seen much worse than that,´ Mostafa Sharrouf told the Sydney Morning Herald on Monday. Khaled Sharrouf´s son, believed to be aged seven, used both hands to hoist the decapitated head up as he posed for a chilling photo. His proud father, one of Australia´s most-wanted terrorists and a suspected war criminal, posted the photo to Twitter on August 8 with

“You use them or you die.” This is what a doctor told Sulette Brown, a psychotherapist from Oklahoma, when she balked at taking statins, after she’d been rushed to the emergency room for a heart attack. Since that night, her life has changed in ways she could not have imagined. Statins block the synthesis of cholesterol, a naturally-occurring substance that is found in every cell in your body. They commonly are prescribed to treat and prevent cardiovascular disease, or CVD, a condition in which the arteries are occluded by plaque which consists of (among other things) cholesterol. Two common complications of CVD

They checked in for drug treatment and allegedly got sent out for what amounted to slave labor instead. Residents of the taxpayer-funded J-CAP program in Queens were dispatched to the Upper East Side home of program manager Murray Kaplan to do cleaning and to his Hamptons house for yard work, former ­J-CAP staffers told The Post. One patient, a veteran who lived at the treatment facility, was said to have made regular visits to Kaplan’s apartment and was aghast when she was asked to hand-wash lingerie for his wife, according to the former staffer. “She came to me very upset,

An Isis commander at a terrorist training camp north of Baghdad accidentally detonated a belt packed with explosives during a demonstration in front of a group militants on Monday, killing himself and 21 nearby trainees. The accident was a source of dark humour for locals, with suicide attacks in public spaces having become an almost daily occurrence in Iraq. A bomber struck a falafel shop near the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad last week, and when told of the bungled training demonstration by the New York Times, Raad Hashim, who works at a liquor store near the site of

As we reported earlier, the community in Ferguson, Missouri, was outraged after unarmed teenager Mike Brown was shot and killed by police. Police responded with tear gas, and have arrested many, but for many hours into the evening, several stores were left to the mercy of opportunistic looters. Social media captured the chaos in the Missouri town, which is located just outside of St. Louis: (Videos) Protests reached a crescendo Sunday night that broke into violence, looting, and reports of gun shots.

Dozens of looters descended on stores in a St. Louis suburb and a reporter was sucker-punched Sunday following a vigil being held for an unarmed man who was fatally shot by a police officer on Saturday. “We are currently experiencing a riot,” said a Ferguson, Missouri police dispatcher Sunday, according to Reuters. Tension escalated through the day after residents gathered to protest the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. Brown and a friend were walking down the street Saturday when an officer approached them in his squad car. An altercation ensued, and the officer fatally shot Brown. Brown’s friend and other witnesses claim that

The great grandson of Anna Short Harrington, the woman who became "Aunt Jemima," has filed a class action lawsuit against PepsiCo, The Quaker Oats Co., Pinnacle Foods Group, and The Hillshire Brands Co. on behalf of her great grandchildren, according to a report by The Wrap. The suit seeks $2 billion, in addition to punitive damages. D.W. Hunter alleges that the companies conspired to deny that Harrington had been an employee of Quaker Oats and exploiting her image and recipes for profit, but have refused to pay an "equitable fair share of royalties" to her heirs, the Wrap reported.

The news has been pushed and rumored for weeks. But Politico Playbook’s lead item this morning is the news that NBC Political Director Chuck Todd will soon take over David Gregory‘s position as host of “Meet the Press.” The announcement stresses that “nothing is definite or decided.” However, the news is expected within weeks. NYP‘s Page Six first hinted at Gregory being ousted from his coveted post in late July, followed by the news in early August that he recently met with CNN’s Jeff Zucker. In April, WaPo reported that NBC had sought out a psychology consultant to find out

The chief law enforcement officer of the United States is the Attorney General. He/she is charged with the investigations and prosecutions of Federal crimes. When there is corruption in the government, it is the Attorney General who is charged with ferreting out the corrupt and restoring integrity to the Federal government. But what if the Attorney General selectively seeks out crimes to investigate? What if the Attorney General turns a blind eye to those crimes and scandals that will discredit his political interests? What if the Attorney General himself is corrupt? Our Founding Fathers crafted a form of government that

The windswept Scottish highlands are increasingly becoming home to thousands of wind turbines due to government policies seeking to boost green energy production and fight global warming. But such well-intentioned policies may be having an unintended side effect: They could be making people sick. The Scottish Express reported Sunday that the Scottish government has commissioned a study into the “potential ill effects of turbines at 10 sites across the country.” There are more than 33,500 families living within two miles of these turbines, meaning thousands could be getting sick. Activists warn that “infrasound” emanating from nearby wind turbines are causing



The Media Are Buying Hillary´s Foreign

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton--the most senior foreign policy official in the United States, aside from President Barack Obama himself, for four years--is now attempting to differentiate herself from her old boss, now that his hapless leadership has become a liability to her presidential ambitions. And the media are buying it, then re-selling it to the public as if it represents an authentic split instead of opportunism and lies. This is the sequel to the "fairy tale" that so embittered Bill Clinton during the 2008 campaign, when Obama tried to argue that he opposed the Iraq War, though he had

According to a senior IDF officer, the military is about to carry out comprehensive field tests of technological means for locating tunnels. The technology has already been successfully tested in laboratory conditions. If the experiment is successful, the systems will be deployed around Gaza at a cost of a billion to 1.5 billion shekels. The senior officer said that the IDF had received about 700 offers for anti-tunnel systems, and chose two. The senior officer also spoke about the Iron Dome system and confirmed that the system worked well during Operation Protective Edge. However, he warned, “we cannot rest on

As conflict continued in Iraq, President Barack Obama waged a different kind of war during his vacation at Martha´s Vineyard - on the golf course. Obama was escorted to the Farm Neck Golf Club, in Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts, by a huge motorcade, which included a SWAT team and two snipers who peered out of an open trunk. Sporting a United States Secret Service baseball cap, Obama seemed reasonably relaxed despite the hefty protection, laughing and chatting with his golfing buddies in between holes. Obama fled Washington for his family´s familiar vacation spot yesterday for a two-week summer break. Moments before

Lying among a pile of papers at the hideout in Pakistan where Osama Bin Laden was shot dead was a carefully worded 21-page letter. It warned of the rise of a new and ruthless group of Islamic extremists capable of such extreme brutality that Al Qaeda should sever all links with them. In fact, it claimed the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (or ISIS) had such complete disregard for civilian life that it could damage the reputation of Al Qaeda – if such a thing were possible for an organisation that has long traded in murderous terrorism.

White House deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes publicly responded to criticism from Hillary Clinton of Barack Obama´s foreign policy back in June, just as Hillary´s book tour was starting up. "On the broad thrust of our foreign policy, she was fully on board," Rhodes tells Politico. It´s worth remembering Rhodes´s comments now that Hillary Clinton´s recent interview has been published where she seems to be bashing elements of Obama´s foreign policy. As the Atlantic reported: President Obama has long ridiculed the idea that the U.S., early in the Syrian civil war, could have shaped the forces fighting the Assad

In the event you missed it, the Democratic-Socialist Left has been absolutely giddy about the statement released on July 31, 2014, by the Republican majority House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) pertaining to their investigation into Benghazi. The type of giddy that Chris Matthews described in 2008 when he said “I felt this thrill going up my leg” as he listened to then-Presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama speak. The giddiness, of course, relates to the reported finding that there was no deliberate wrongdoing by the Obama administration in the 2012 attack in Benghazi. A closer examination of the facts, however,

Rosie O´Donnell is coming back to The View, and it appears she´s bringing her most outlandish argument with her. The far-left comic made headlines during her first stint on the show for espousing the view that 9/11 was an inside job. Now, it appears O´Donnell hasn´t let go of that 9/11 Truther position. She recently answered a Tweet from Newsbusters´s Scott Whitlock asking her to clarify her view that the terrorist attacks on New York City in 2001 involved a government conspiracy, not merely radical Muslims. The ABC show recently jettisoned both Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd and brought on a new producer from

Obama´s Interview With NYT´s

President Barack Obama´s weekend interview with New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman is a stunning portrait of incoherence and inadequacy. Friedman--a shameless promoter of Obama since the 2008 campaign, whose books have allegedly influenced Obama´s foreign policy views--tries his mightiest to wrest something of substance from the absentee president: "[I]t’s clear that the president has a take on the world," he declares. And what is Obama´s "take"? Two themes emerge from a morass of clichés and sophistry. The first is that the world is simply not worth engaging unless it agrees to behave itself: "no victor, no vanquished," says Obama. Second,

The family of an unarmed Missouri 18-year-old who was shot dead by police this weekend have condemned a frightening riot that erupted in St Louis last night claiming the violence was not what the teen would have wanted. In a statement to Fox News last night, a cousin of victim Mike Brown said the looting, which followed a peaceful vigil for the teen, was ´very upsetting´ to their family. ´I just want everyone to know and understand that the stealing and breaking in stores is not what Mike will want, it is very upsetting to me and my family,´ the

When President Obama announced airstrikes this week in Iraq to address the humanitarian crisis and contain the alarming expansion of the Islamic State across Iraq, his reluctance was visible as he repeatedly said he would not send ground troops in Iraq. It was an ironic twist for a president who defeated Hillary Rodham Clinton in the 2008 presidential race in part because of his vow to withdraw U.S troops from Iraq, a conflict for which Clinton had voted as a senator. But as he steps into the quagmire in Iraq, the term-limited president will not have to face war-weary voters

President Obama has long ridiculed the idea that the U.S., early in the Syrian civil war, could have shaped the forces fighting the Assad regime, thereby stopping al Qaeda-inspired groups—like the one rampaging across Syria and Iraq today—from seizing control of the rebellion. In an interview in February, the president told me that “when you have a professional army ... fighting against a farmer, a carpenter, an engineer who started out as protesters and suddenly now see themselves in the midst of a civil conflict—the notion that we could have, in a clean way that didn’t commit U.S. military forces,

Hamas executed dozens of diggers responsible for its extensive tunnel system in past weeks, fearing the workers would reveal the site locations to Israel, a report on the Mako website’s army blog said. There was no independent confirmation of the report (link here in Hebrew). The tunnelers, many of whom constructed the tunnels over the course of months, would dig for 8-12 hours a day, and received a monthly wage of $150-$300, according to the blog. Sources in Gaza told the website that Hamas took a series of precautions to prevent information from reaching Israel. The terror organization would reportedly

Sens.

The senators argued in a letter last week that the weapons were particularly troubling when coupled with anti-Israel statements and actions of the UN agency. Their letter cites “multiple instances of weapons found at UNRWA schools as well one-sided statements from UNRWA leadership that unjustly condemn Israel,” including UNRWA Commissioner General Pierre Krahenbuhl stating July 14
