It was late afternoon when Air Force spotted a Cessna airplane landing right at area 51. Perplexed, they immediately seized the pilot and dragged him into an interrogation room.
The pilot’s story was that he took off from Vegas, got lost, and spotted the Base just as he was about to run out of fuel. The Air Force started a full FBI background check on the pilot and held him overnight during the investigation.
By the next day, they were finally convinced that the pilot really was lost and wasn’t a spy. They gassed up his airplane, gave him a terrifying “you-did-not-see-a-base” briefing, complete with threats of spending the rest of his life in prison, told him Vegas was that-a-way on such-and-such a heading, and sent him on his way.
The day after that though, to the total disbelief of the Air Force, the same Cessna showed up again. Once again, the MP’s surrounded the plane… only this time there were two people in the plane. The pilot and a sour, angry looking woman.
The same pilot jumped out and said, “I know I shouldn’t be here again, and you can do anything you want to me, but please, please, will you tell my wife that I actually DID spend last night in area 51!”
One of the notable features of the BBC’s tsunami of coverage of Ariel Sharon’s death – and one which has already received no small amount of criticism on social media for its inappropriate lack of taste – has been the generous inclusion and amplification of hate-filled views of the man and his life.
On the live page which appeared on the BBC News website on January 11th immediately following the official announcement of Sharon’s death under the tacky heading “As it happened: Ariel Sharon dies“, the feed included the following. [all emphasis added]
“1446: Arab Twitter users were celebrating Sharon’s death within seconds of it being announced. Tweets in Arabic seen by the BBC recount what many see as Sharon’s crimes from the 1967 Arab-Israeli war through the occupation of Lebanon in 1982, to the storming of the al-Aqsa Mosque complex in 2000.
“Sharon is a…

Where To Now
“This is where we are at right now, as a whole.
No one is left out of the loop.
We are experiencing a reality based on a thin veneer of lies and illusions.
A world where greed is our God and wisdom is sin,
where division is key and unity is fantasy,
where the ego-driven cleverness of the mind is praised,
rather than the intelligence of the heart.”
“Where now are the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the harp on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
The days have gone down in the West behind…

The past few years have brought about change beyond anyone’s understanding. We have gone through a series of endless emotions and battled through frustration, anger, oppression and discrimination that have essentially lead us to today’s challenging circumstances.
Our endless battles within and outside us have made Egypt’s last few years historical to say the least. We have stood among our fellow siblings of blood and nationality chanting our hearts away in times of strength and in times of weakness.
A population full of innovators, believers and above all powerful leaders, we have continued to amaze and astound the world with our unparalleled resilience and strength towards the protection and liberation of our country.
Though the past few years maybe just one occasion in which we have proven to the world the kind of people we are. Our past prides itself on the endless battles of…

Adjacent synagogues in Ezer, a town located between Ashdod and Ashkelon, were broken into and vandalized. The damages included ripping the doors off of the ark which held the Torah Scrolls, tearing of Torah Scrolls, leaving uncovered Torah Scrolls on the floor, damaging other holy books tossing them strewn about on the floor and treating other holy objects in a destructive manner. This desecration comes only a week after a similar desecration of a synagogue in Tel Aviv where Nazi graffiti had been painted on the walls and floors along with “Death” spray painted on the front wall of the building, and a crude drawing of a devil painted on the floor. Other such crimes have occurred within the last year including the desecration of King David’s Tomb during the recent massive snowstorm. Newly donated religious holy books were stamped with the fictitious name “Academy – King David.” In all…
