After Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he opposes the Washington-Moscow deal regarding Syria, Russia’s foreign minister said that Israel’s considerations will be taken into account during the discussions. He said that Russia is “doing everything possible regarding the matter.”
Yeah… ‘Ol Cyrus Trump really did Israel in this time! AND Cyrus continues to anger the Russians over the Russian diplomatic property seized in New York and Maryland. How do you think this will turn out for Israel… Or for America? Connect the dots.
For the first time in years, Jews went up onto the Temple Mount on Monday without the accompaniment of Muslim religious authority officials, as police allowed non-Muslim visitors back onto the powder-keg holy site for the first time since a Friday terror attack in the Old City of Jerusalem.
A Twitter feed belonging to Israeli rescue service Hatzolah published a picture of what it said were a group of Jews taking advantage of the lack of Waqf officials and reciting Kaddish (the Mourners Prayer) for the two police officers — both Druze — who were killed in the attack.
The Trump administration doesn’t seem capable of, or even interested in, delving into the nitty-gritty of the Temple Mount’s status quo

Libya will be very weak from this war and will be easy prey for Iran and Russia.
Iran’s power in the Middle East increases by the day. Iran has funded and armed Hezbollah, and helped Syria’s Bashar Al-Assad and is now cozying up to Qatar over Saudi Arabia’s recent boycott.

Forget spraying pesticides on your food, now they’ll be genetically engineered to be in your food, thanks to Monsanto’s latest quiet approval via the US Environmental Protection Agency.
The EPA just told Monsanto they could go ahead and bypass spraying our crops with carcinogenic chemicals like Round Up and just go ahead and breed them right into the crops themselves. Using a process called RNA interference, Monsanto’s RNAi plant will supposedly kill pesky rootworms when they come along to chomp on them- but what else will these genetically modified crops do to beneficial bugs, the soil, and human health? The EPA has no idea, because they haven’t done a single trial on RNAi-altered crops.
