Russia and Ukraine closer to all-out war
after 40 die in rebel-held city as British
warplanes assemble on Putin´s border

Daily Mail [UK], by Simon Tomlinson, Matthew Blake

Posted By:Attercliffe, 5/3/2014 5:47:24 AM

Russia and Ukraine inched closer to war yesterday after ‘many’ pro-Moscow separatists were killed during a major military offensive to seize back a rebel-held city. As fighting flared in the east of Ukraine, Vladimir Putin said the operation had ‘destroyed’ any hopes of peace. The Kremlin said Kiev’s decision to deploy the army against its own people was a ‘catastrophe’ and called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council. On a day of dramatic developments in the crisis: Ukraine’s acting president Oleksandr Turchynov said the militants suffered ‘heavy losses’ in the anti-terror operation;

Prosecutors in Germany have searched the home of a defence ministry employee suspected of spying, in the second such case in a week. Residential and office areas were searched in Berlin on Wednesday morning, the federal prosecutor in Karlsruhe said. An intelligence agency employee was arrested this month for passing secret documents to US intelligence. The US promised on Monday to work to resolve the problem. There were no reports of a new arrest on Wednesday. The US has not denied allegations that the intelligence agency employee arrested earlier this month was passing secret documents to the US National Security

This is the shocking moment ISIS militants took sledgehammers to Iraqi tombs - smashing them to pieces. The rebels, who are members of the Islamic State terror group, were filmed attacking centuries-old graves in the north-west city of Mosul in Ninevah province. Donning balaclavas and black coats, they swung sledgehammers into the tombs, causing pieces of dust and stone to fly through the air. One of the devastated tombstones belonged to the Prophet Jonah (Younis in Arabic) and was revered by Muslims and Christians alike, according to Iraqi authorities. The Prophet, whom the Hebrew Bible´s Book of Jonah is written on, is best

‘Astonishing’ new twist

The slaughter of a British family in the Alps took an extraordinary twist yesterday when police revealed that one of the victims had a secret former husband who died in the US on the very same day--possibly killed by a poisoned dart. [Snip] But police yesterday revealed that Iqbal had a “secret ex-husband” who died in mysterious circumstances in Natchez, Mississippi, on the day the family were gunned down in their car while on holiday in the Alps in September 2012. Benoit Vinnemann, a senior police commander working on the case, said the “family secret” may have provided a motive for

#GazaUnderAttack Images Are Not Reliable

The BBC has investigated, and found inaccurate, numerous graphic images which are being shared on social media to show how people in Gaza have been affected by the renewed tensions with Israel. [Snip] Over the past week the hashtag #GazaUnderAttack has been used hundreds of thousands of times to distribute pictures claiming to show the effects of the Israeli airstrikes on Gaza’s population. Some of the images are of the current situation in Gaza, but a #BBCtrending analysis has found that many images date as far back as 2009 and others are from conflicts in Syria and Iraq.

Gaza wakes up to the devastation

The Israeli army has launched its biggest offensive in nearly two years on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, killing more than 20 Palestinians in airstrikes on 160 sites. Army spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner says warplanes early Wednesday attacked sites including Hamas command centers and rocket launchers. The offensive has set off the heaviest fighting between Israel and the Islamic militant group Hamas since an eight-day battle in November 2012. Militants unleashed rocket salvos deep into Israeli territory, and Israel mobilized thousands of forces along the Gaza border for a possible ground invasion into the Palestinian territory.

President Barack Obama has accepted an invitation from Texas Governor Rick Perry yesterday to meet for a ´substantive´ discussion about illegal immigration when the president comes to Texas tomorrow. [Snip] ´In addition, he asked me to invite you to join him for a meeting to discuss the situation on the border with faith leaders and local elected officials in Dallas on Wednesday,´ Jarrett said.

Three loud explosions rocked Jerusalem on Tuesday night following a day of airstrikes in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip by Israeli forces. Air sirens sounded in the Israeli capital at 9pm local time, shortly followed by four bright flashes lighting the sky southwest of the city. [Snip] The Israeli military launched what could be a long-term offensive earlier in the day, striking more than 100 sites and mobilising troops for a possible ground invasion aimed at stopping a heavy barrage of rocket attacks against Israel. At least 15 Palestinians, including three children, were killed in the attacks from air and sea, Palestinian

Israel came under a heavy barrage of rocket fire on Tuesday night, with code red sirens sounding off in central Israel, the Jerusalem area and as far North as Binyamina. More than 40 rockets were fired into Israel in the biggest ever salvo of long-range fire from Gaza. The Iron Dome rocket defense system intercepted a number of rockets and no significant injuries have been reported in the attack. An Iron Dome battery intercepted a projectile over the greater Tel Aviv area for the second time on Tuesday evening. Two loud thuds were heard by residents in downtown Jerusalem shortly

Where is the outrage over the

You see, as most people in the UK were waking up this morning, and those in Europe, United States and elsewhere around the world were going about their daily routines, here in Israel over one million people were running for cover from a hail of rockets being rained down by Palestinian Hamas terrorists in Gaza. [Snip] To put things in context: one million Israelis is roughly 13 percent of the population. Thirteen percent of the UK population equates to about 8.4 million people, or the entire population of London. A number of Israelis have already been injured, though thankfully without

Texas Governor Rick Perry is refusing an offer from the White House to meet President Barack Obama on the tarmac for a handshake when he lands in Texas tomorrow. ´I appreciate the offer to greet you at Austin-Bergstrom Airport, but a quick handshake on the tarmac will not allow for a thoughtful discussion regarding the humanitarian and national security crises enveloping the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas,´ Perry said yesterday in a letter to the president declining his invitation. ´I would instead offer to meet with you at any time during your visit to Texas for a substantive meeting

Hillary Clinton doubles down on poverty

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton told the German magazine Der Spiegel on Tuesday that she and her husband Bill were ´deeply in debt´ when they left the White House, and blamed ´relentless persecution´ by Republicans for her legal bills after his presidency. The claim has added fuel to the fire Clinton herself touched off last month when she claimed they were ´dead broke´ after their time in the White House. The former first lady earns $200,000 or more every time she makes a public speech. The former president has earned a reported $104 million in speaking fees since he

The White House may have to scrap its plans to aggressively promote a 40 percent national minimum wage hike now that the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office found that the move would likely cost the U.S. 500,000 jobs by the second half of 2016. [Snip] The White House didn´t answer questions about whether that trade-off is acceptable to President Obama, but Senate Democrats have pushed hard for legislation that would implement his goal of driving the minimum wage far above its current $7.25 level. But it quickly scheduled an afternoon conference call for reporters with Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Jason Furman, and

Sarah Palin on Tuesday joined a growing chorus of Republicans calling for the impeachment of President Obama, writing in a Breitbart op-ed that the influx of young illegal immigrants over the southern border "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´no mas.´ " Mixed/careless metaphors aside, this is nothing but bad news for Republicans — especially four months until the 2014 election. Palin is hardly the first GOP politician to raise the issue of impeachment over the past couple years. Others include Sens. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Reps.

At Arizona State University, female students can earn extra credit by agreeing to not shave their armpits and legs for ten weeks. Breanne Fahs, a professor of women and gender studies, has made the special offer to her students as a way to encourage them to challenge social norms. “There’s no better way to learn about societal norms than to violate them and see how people react,” she told ASU News. “There’s really no reason why the choice to shave, or not, should be a big deal. But it is, as the students tend to find out quickly.” Female students looking to earn

Despite his continuous denials, some still believe that Mitt Romney will run for president in 2016. Speaking to MSNBC on Monday, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, went one step further saying that the former Massachusetts governor will be occupying the White House after the next presidential election. “I think he actually is going to run for president. He probably doesn’t want me to say that. A hundred times he says he’s not, but Mitt Romney has always accomplished what he has set out to do,”

Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, “no mas.” Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America. It’s the only promise he has kept. Discrediting the price paid for America’s exceptionalism over our history, he’s given false hope and taxpayer’s change to millions of foreign nationals who want to sneak into our country illegally. Because of Obama’s purposeful dereliction of duty an untold

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats said Tuesday that they had developed legislation to override the Supreme Court decision on contraceptives. The bill would ensure that women have access to coverage for birth control even if they work for businesses that have religious objections. The bill, developed in consultation with the Obama administration, would require for-profit corporations like Hobby Lobby Stores to provide and pay for contraceptive coverage, along with other preventive services, under the Affordable Care Act. The measure could be on the Senate floor as early as next week, Senate Democrats said. “Your health care decisions are not your boss’s

World Net Daily reported, via Free Republic: The retail giant Costco Wholesale has issued an order to remove all copies of Dinesh D’Souza’s bestselling book, “America: Imagine the World Without Her,” from the shelves of its stores nationwide, WND has confirmed. The book, in this midterm election year, is a strong rebuttal of the progressive ideology behind President Obama’s policies, which have been supported by Costco co-founder and director Jim Sinegal, a major Democrat donor and a speaker at the 2012 Democratic National Convention that nominated the president. A Washington Post political reporter has noted Obama’s “romance” with the nation’s

Costco has suddenly — and according to author Dinesh D’Souza, inexplicably —booted his book from stores nationwide, ordering chain operators to clear their shelves of “America: Imagine a World Without Her” by July 15. Mr. D’Souza said roughly 3,600 copies of his newest release has sold at Costco already, but he has no idea why the chain refuses to sell more. “We’re in the process of finding out what’s happening,” he told WND. “I look forward to getting to the bottom of this and continuing the strong relationship my publisher and I have always had with Costco and their millions

President Obama evidently has decided not to put a human face on the crisis unfolding at the U.S. southern border—not even his own. The White House said over and over again Monday that Obama will not travel to the border with Mexico despite flying to Texas this week to raise money for Democratic candidates there. It´s certainly in part a political decision, one meant to avoid taking ownership of a difficult issue on which the White House would prefer to share blame. (Snip) In other words, if Obama goes goes to the border, he owns the problem. If he doesn't, he's blasted for a lack of leadership.

Hamas militants in Gaza have fired ´dozens´ of rockets into southern Israel after six of its men died in an Israeli airstrike, the Islamist group said. The bombardment was confirmed by the Israeli army which said militants had launched ´a few dozen rockets´ within a short period of time. [Snip] At least four rockets were intercepted over Netivot by the Iron Dome anti-missile system, while another 16 struck the area around the southern city of Beersheva, some 40 kilometres (25 miles) from Gaza, and which is home to 200,000 people, the army said.
