Donald Trump Jr. Slams BBC Over ‘Misleading’ Jerusalem Terrorist Attack Headline

TEL AVIV – President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Jr., slammed the BBC for its headline on the Jerusalem terror attack that only mentioned the deaths of three Palestinians and failed to note that they were terrorists who murdered a border policewoman. 

“Three Palestinians killed after deadly stabbing in Jerusalem,” read the original BBC tweet on Saturday. It was quickly deleted by the British state broadcaster.
Trump Jr. immediately retorted: “You mean after they stabbed a female Israeli police officer to death… right? This is as close to being misleading as possible.”   Read more.....

Nikki Haley Blasts U.N. Human Rights Office for ‘Unfair Bias’ Against Israel in Latest Report

U.S Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has blasted a new U.N. report that attacks Israeli actions in the Middle East, in what she says is the latest sign of the U.N.’s “unfair bias” in how it handles the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. 

The report, from the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, was submitted in response to a resolution by the Human Rights Council — a body which Haley has repeatedly criticized for its own anti-Israel bias and the questionable human rights record of some of its members.  Read More.....

Amazon Selling ‘Free Palestine’ Shirts After Sears, Walmart Stop Selling Them

Online retailer Amazon is still selling shirts as well as other items of clothing that say “Free Palestine” after Sears and Walmart have removed them from their stores. 

Amazon is selling the items, including hats, shirts, and pins featuring clenched fists and the Palestinian flag, via third-party sellers, the Times of Israel reported. 

Most of the “Free Palestine” items in Amazon’s marketplace have been getting one-star ratings from consumers unhappy with how Amazon is willing to host a third-party retailer that sells anti-Israel propaganda. 

“Why would you sell “free Palestine” merchandise? it presupposes the nonexistence of Israel and ultimately the nialiation of the Jewish nation,” one user wrote in a review of a “Free Palestine! Save Gaza T-Shirt.” 

“It’s a shame that Amazon sells such offensive and terror supporting shirts!” another user wrote in a review of the same product. 

Sears released a statement Wednesday saying that they removed their “Free Palestine” shirts from its online marketplace.  Read More >

Egypt Demands Hamas Distance Self from Qatar, Iran

The Algemeiner reports: A Hamas delegation — led by Yahya Sinwar — visited Cairo last week for meetings with Egyptian government officials, the Hebrew news site nrg reported on Sunday. 

This was the first such visit by a Hamas delegation to Egypt in several months, the report said, and came against the backdrop of growing cooperation against a common threat posed by radical Salafists. 

The Egyptians, according to nrg, demanded that Hamas distance itself from Iran, following recent declarations by Tehran regime officials that a restoration of ties with the Gaza Strip-ruling Islamist group — including a renewal of funding — was in the works. Relations between Iran and Hamas cooled in recent years due to differences over the conflict in Syria.  Read More >
