WASHINGTON – House Republicans are passing around a letter expressing support for “swift action” by the incoming Trump administration to relocate America’s embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, according to a copy obtained by The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday. The letter, which has not yet obtained any signatures, is addressed to the president-elect’s transition team in Trump Tower, indicating the caucus’s intent to send it before Donald Trump’s inauguration next week. “Moving the embassy will strengthen the unique alliance between Israel and the United States and send a clear message to the world that we support Israel in recognizing

Look on the Bright side. When the US Embassy is in Jerusalem it will not be incinerated when the Iranians nuke Tel-Aviv.

Paris (CNN)French police are hunting a man identified by Belgian security services in connection with an attack on police officers in Paris Thursday, a French interior ministry spokesman said. A gunman, who shot three police officers on the Champs-Elysee, killing one, was later claimed by ISIS through its media wing Amaq as an Islamic State "fighter" they dubbed "the Belgian." French Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet told France´s Europe 1 radio Friday that it´s too early to tell what role the second suspect played, if any, in the attack.

Scarcely had the starting gun for Britain’s election battle been fired when technology guru Bill Gates waded in with a doom-laden warning to the Prime Minister. The American multi-billionaire, the world’s richest man, was accused of ‘lecturing’ Britain last night after telling Theresa May not to slash the country’s bloated foreign aid budget – claiming that doing so would diminish Britain’s influence in the world and mean many more lives lost in Africa. In an article in the Guardian, he wrote: ‘The big aid givers now are the US, Britain and Germany. If those three back off, a lot of

This is the moment a BBC report was interrupted by loud noises that police mistook for gunfire. The reporter was describing the ´tension´ in the French capital following an attack that left one policeman dead and two seriously injured. Then a sound like gunshots could be heard, which led to police shouting at the journalist and her cameraman to run for cover. At the start of the video, the reporter says: ´People in central Paris were too scared to leave their homes, the tension is palpable.´ After the loud bangs, she says: ´A sudden noise where we were was mistaken for gunfire and

President Donald Trump tore into the nuclear pact with Iran today, deriding it as a ´terrible agreement´ that ´shouldn´t have been signed.´ His administration is analyzing it, Trump said, referring to the 90-day review Secretary of State Rex Tillerson initiated Tuesday. ´I’m all for agreements, but that was a bad one, as bad as I’ve ever seen negotiated,´ the billionaire, and former businessman, said during a White House press conference. ´They are not living up to the spirit of the agreement, I can tell you that,´ he added.

DONALD TRUMP has sent his condolences to France and said the deadly shooting of a police officer in the Champs Elysees in Paris looks "like another terror attack". The US President paid his respects after one police officer was killed and two others seriously injured in the deadly shooting, despite initial reports saying two police officers had been killed. He said: "Our condolences from our country to the people of France, again it is happening. "It is a terrible thing that is going on in the world today but it looks like another terrorist attack and what can you say, it never

Local Afghan leaders have called the massive bomb that was dropped in eastern Afghanistan last Thursday ´very successful´ and are pleased with the results. US troops are still battling suspected Islamic State fighters near the site where the GBU-43 Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb, nicknamed ´the mother of all bombs´ was dropped from an American MC-130 aircraft in the Achin district of Nangarhar province, bordering Pakistan, last week. But local Afghan leaders have said they ´all are happy´ with the results of the bomb, which had an official insurgent death toll of 96. US, Afghan and local authorities say there were no

Calls are growing for the heroic McDonald´s workers who trapped the Facebook killer Steve Stephens at a drive-thru to get the $50,000 reward for his capture. After two days on the run, the murderer´s reign of terror came to an end on Tuesday morning - thanks to the bravery of two employees at the Buffalo Road in Erie branch. Recognizing him as the man who shot dead Robert Godwin, 74, on Sunday, they delayed him long enough for police to arrive and give chase - leading to Stephens´ death by suicide. It was assumed the workers would split the reward offered by various

"How will history judge Barack Obama in terms of his policies and actions toward the Middle East?" asked UCLA Professor of Middle Eastern History James Gelvin at UC Berkeley. A crowd of around 100 students and faculty, some in Muslim attire, crammed into a small conference room in the Center for Middle Eastern Studies in Stephens Hall to hear Gelvin´s lecture. The venue was tight and some students squatted just outside the door near a cameraman filming the lecture for online distribution. He spoke with a map of the Middle East projected onto a wall behind him and near a series of

If you cheered the return of Bob Beckel to the Fox News lineup, and if it made your day that Marie Harf was added to the roster as an on-call “expert,” it means that Fox News is headed in your direction – leftward. They’re standing tall in the Murdoch empire as the mighty keep falling. Bill O’Reilly is out. It’s official. The network’s biggest draw over a period of some 20 years was let go due to alleged improper behavior towards women. Five of them, it’s been reported, were paid some $13 million all together to stay quiet. So it’s “sexual

Bill Gates has urged Britain to stick to its international foreign aid target because it´s achieving "incredible results" and bolstering UK security. The Microsoft co-founder, who has donated billions of his own fortune through his charitable foundation, spoke to ITV News amid speculation Theresa May could cut the UK´s overseas aid budget. Gates said that giving aid is not only philanthropic, but in Britain´s interest to help stabilise poorer countries. He said the cash - 0.7% of national income - helps make the UK safer by achieving its strategic goals, such as reducing global outbreaks of infectious diseases or avoiding

Chelsea Clinton likes cheddar cheese and Twitter and hates that America can’t come to grips with what the Clinton Foundation actually does. Oh, and her mother lost because voters are sexist. Speaking to Variety magazine (she graces the cover in a white t-shirt, motorcycle jacket and a lot of Photoshop work), Clinton says she’s definitely not interested in running for office, but if she were, she’d have to contend with American voters who stubbornly refuse to acknowledge exactly how much she and her family have contributed to their lives. The former First Daughter says she was “not surprised” at the blatant sexism

Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University.

The knives are out in Hillary Clinton’s camp about who leaked embarrassing information to the authors of a bombshell new book about her “doomed presidential campaign.” There is a witch hunt underway among Clinton’s presidential campaign staffers after the release of the autopsy book, “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign” by journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes. We’re told the details in the book, which depicts the campaign as inept, “could only have come from someone in the inner circle.” Dennis Cheng, the finance director of Clinton’s presidential campaign, has been sending out messages to determine where the leaks come from.

(Snip) She added that xenophobia played a big part in Trump’s election campaign. “He got that people are deeply angry,” she said. “People are right to be angry, but Donald Trump said it’s their fault—those other people. Those people who don’t worship like you, those people who don’t look like you, those people who aren’t the same color as you.” Warren also attacked the president for

The school’s Student Government Associationpassed a resolution by 19-10 supporting slavery reparations for black students in the form of free tuition and free access to the public Bowling Green campus. The resolution also recommends that the university create a task force to “assess the feasibility of test-optional admissions and geographically-weighted admissions,” claiming that some standardized testing poses a disadvantage for needy students and perpetuates inequality and “white supremacy,” The Bowling Green Daily News reported. “We demand reparations for the systemic denial of access to

Asked Thursday by Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith if there are enough winnable districts for Democrats, Pelosi replied, “Yes, indeed.” She said there are more than 40 seats held by the GOP that are considered more favorable to Democrats than the suburban Atlanta district where Democrat Jon Ossoff came within 3 points of winning an all-party primary on Tuesday. Georgia´s 6th Congressional District, which became vacant after former Rep. Tom Price became Secretary of Health and Human Services, has been held by the GOP

A Chicago artist has finished his mural of Michelle Obama in a colorful image that features the former first lady as an Egyptian queen. The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School. "I wanted to present her as what I think she is, so she´s clothed as an Egyptian queen. I thought that was appropriate,"

By his twenties, Kyle Kaylor imagined he would be living on his own, nearing a college degree, and on his way to a job that fulfilled him. Instead, at 21, he found himself out of school, living with his parents, and "stuck" working as a manager at a fast food restaurant scraping to make hand-to-mouth. Launching into adulthood has been tricky, he said. "It became too difficult financially to be in school and not working," says Kaylor, who dropped out of Lincoln Christian University, in Illinois, after one semester because of a money crunch.
