Rebroadcast of Abbas is Declaration of War

Beyond the Cusp

Below is the Palestinian Media Watch noting of the rebroadcast of Mahmoud Abbas’s call to arms, which began the rioting on the Temple Mount from a number of years ago. Today, like then, it came after Arab Terrorists attacked to murder innocents on or around the Temple Mount. This time the rebroadcast came after the assassination of two police officers and the wounding seriously of a third after which Israel closed the Temple Mount for almost one and a half days, reopening it on Sunday evening. Before Abbas, we include the initial attack itself as caught on Temple Mount entrance monitors with commentary and identification of terrorist and the two officers who were murdered. There was a third police officer wounded in the upper torso and extremities before the three terrorists, the two seen in video plus a third terrorist, and all three were quite well armed. We will include…

OJ Simpson Net Worth: How He’ll Make Money After Parole

O.J. Simpson was granted parole Thursday — meaning he will be a free man as early as Oct. 1.

But what will Simpson’s life be like when he gets out of jail? Simpson still owes tens of millions of dollars in the wake of a 1997 civil lawsuit, in which he was found liable for the wrongful deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman, and ordered to pay $33.5 million in damages to the survivors’ families.

Even so, Simpson will probably be quite comfortable financially when he is released from jail, thanks to pensions that may pay out more than $25,000 per month — funds that aren’t subject to seizure by creditors.

The 70-year-old former football star, who was tried and acquitted in 1995 for the murder of Brown and Goldman, is currently incarcerated because he was found guilty in 2008 of armed robbery, kidnapping and other charges in Las Vegas. He was sentenced to 33 years in prison, with a nine-year minimum. He has already served more than eight years.

How the Pentagon’s Handling of Munitions and Their Waste has Poisoned America

RADFORD, Virginia — Shortly after dawn most weekdays, a warning siren rips across the flat, swift water of the New River running alongside the Radford Army Ammunition Plant. Red lights warning away boaters and fishermen flash from the plant, the nation’s largest supplier of propellant for artillery and the source of explosives for almost every American bullet fired overseas.

Along the southern Virginia riverbank, piles of discarded contents from bullets, chemical makings from bombs, and raw explosives — all used or left over from the manufacture and testing of weapons ingredients at Radford — are doused with fuel and lit on fire, igniting infernos that can be seen more than a half a mile away. The burning waste is rich in lead, mercury, chromium and compounds like nitroglycerin and perchlorate, all known health hazards. The residue from the burning piles rises in a spindle of hazardous smoke, twists into the wind and, depending on the weather, sweeps toward the tens of thousands of residents in the surrounding towns.

Nearby, Belview Elementary School has been ranked by researchers as facing some of the most dangerous air-quality hazards in the country. The rate of thyroid diseases in three of the surrounding counties is among the highest in the state, provoking town residents to worry that emissions from the Radford plant could be to blame. Government authorities have never studied whether Radford’s air pollution could be making people sick, but some of their hypothetical models estimate that the local population faces health risks exponentially greater than people in the rest of the region.

Germany: Infectious Diseases Spreading as Migrants Settle In

A failed asylum seeker from Yemen who was given sanctuary at a church in northern Germany to prevent him from being deported has potentially infected more than 50 German children with a highly contagious strain of tuberculosis.

The man, who was sheltered at a church in Bünsdorf between January and May 2017, was in frequent contact with the children, some as young as three, who were attending a day care center at the facility. He was admitted to a hospital in Rendsburg in June and subsequently diagnosed with tuberculosis — a disease which only recently has reentered the German consciousness.

Local health authorities say that in addition to the children, parents and teachers as well as parishioners are also being tested for the disease, which can develop months or even years after exposure. It remains unclear if the man received the required medical exams when he first arrived in Germany, or if he is one of the hundreds of thousands of migrants who have slipped through the cracks.

The tuberculosis scare has cast a renewed spotlight on the increased risk of infectious diseases in Germany since Chancellor Angela Merkel allowed in around two million migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
