Following Devastating Earthquake, Israel Offers Search and Rescue Assistance to Italy

Israel has offered search and rescue assistance to Italy following the 6.2-magnitude earthquake in the Umbria region on Wednesday that killed dozens of people and caused mass destruction.

A statement released by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office expressed condolences to the Italian people and wished a speedy recovery to those injured in the earthquake.

Israel has a long history of providing post-disaster assistance across the world. In April 2015, as reported by The Algemeiner, Israel sent the second largest national delegation to assist Nepal following the massive earthquake sustained by the Himalayan mountain nation.

In recent years, Israel has also sent aid delegations to Japan following the March 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster and to Haiti after its devastating January 2010 earthquake.


Can Islam coexist with Western Civilization?

It’s been a long while since I have been able to speak in public. The Garland jihad attacks had a chilling affect on free speech. Abject fear and crushing security concerns have made such talks rare. Let’s be frank: people are afraid to invite me. I am deeply honored and proud that the American Freedom Alliance extended the brave invitation.

We live in the age of fear. We need a revolution of the mind. Instead of fear we must live in the age of fight.

We must change the rules of engagement in the information battle-space. They are just as crippling as the rules of engagement in Afghanistan and Iraq.

I welcomed the opportunity to educate and activate the hundreds of freedom lovers who came to organize and strategize.


Muslim cleric from terror sponsor Iran praises Pope for saying Islam is peaceful

Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi of Qom wrote in a letter to the Pope: ‘I am really delighted to have heard your comments during your last trip to Poland in which you stated “Islam is not equal to terrorism” and further dismissed the association of violence and harshness with any and all divinely-sent religions.’

Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi of Qom must know better. He must know that the Qur’an and Sunnah teach warfare against unbelievers, as I demonstrate here and in many other places. He is thanking the Pope for furthering what he must know are false statements that keep people ignorant and complacent about the jihad threat. He is, in effect, thanking the Pope for being a tool of the global jihad.


Tel Aviv Researchers Make Skin Cancer “Breakthrough”

Researchers have discovered how Melanoma spreads through the body, a “breakthrough” they hope will lead to cancer becoming nonthreatening and easily curable, according to a new Tel Aviv University study done in cooperation with the German Cancer Research (DKFZ).

Melanoma is an aggressive cancer that kills one person every 52 minutes, according to the international Skin Cancer Foundation.

The study, which looked at the spread of Melanoma, was published in a Nature Cell Biology article.

Scientists found that before spreading, Melanoma tumors send out small vesicles with molecules that trigger structural changes in the skin that prepare it for receiving cancer cells, and transporting them further. The scientists also found chemical substances that can stop the process, which raises hope that cancer-treating drugs could be developed.


ISIS Comes to Gaza

Hamas denies it up and down. Nonetheless, there are growing signs that the Islamist movement, which is based in the Gaza Strip, is continuing to cooperate with other jihadi terror groups that are affiliated with Islamic State (ISIS), especially those that have been operating in the Egyptian peninsula of Sinai in recent years.

This cooperation, according to Palestinian Authority security sources, is the main reason behind the ongoing tensions between the Egyptian authorities and Hamas. These tensions have prompted the Egyptians to keep the Rafah border crossing mostly closed since 2013, trapping tens of thousands of Palestinians inside the Gaza Strip.

In 2015, the Egyptians opened the Rafah terminal for a total of twenty-one days to allow humanitarian cases and those holding foreign nationalities to leave or enter the Gaza Strip.

This year so far, Rafah has been open for a total of twenty-eight days. Sources in the Gaza Strip say there are about 30,000 humanitarian cases that need to leave immediately. They include dozens of university students who haven’t been able to go back to their universities abroad and some 4,000 patients in need of urgent medical treatment.


Condoleezza Rice Confirms Hillary Clinton Lying About Colin Powell

Hillary Clinton has a real genius for taking a basic lie and somehow turning it into a major scandal by just making it worse for no good reason. Case in point, trying to blame Colin Powell for her email operation.

Not only did this drag in Colin Powell. It dragged in Condoleezza Rice. And it’s unclear why Hillary thought it would be a good idea to have two former black secretaries of state calling her a liar. Not that they are directly doing that. Instead they’re just not remembering the crazy lie that Hillary Clinton made up. Which is a polite way of saying, this never happened.
