Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Friday the Israeli strikes on several targets in Syria earlier that day targeted weapons bound for Lebanon’s Hezbollah, and that the Jewish State would do the same again if necessary.
The Israeli airstrike prompted retaliatory missile launches, in the most serious incident between Syria and the Jewish state since the Syrian civil war began six years ago.
Syria’s military said it had downed an Israeli plane and hit another as they were carrying out pre-dawn strikes near the famed desert city of Palmyra that it recaptured from jihadists this month.
In addition to his customary invective against European governments for refusing to allow his ministers to rally Turkish expatriates behind him, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday that the EU’s new ban on headscarves in the workplace would launch “a struggle between the cross and the crescent.”
In a tirade on Wednesday, Erdogan said the “spirit of fascism is roaming the streets of Europe,” comparing the treatment of Muslims to how the Nazis treated Jews.
Also speaking on Thursday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu predicted that “holy wars” would soon begin in Europe.
If there’s one thing that we can trust governments everywhere to do, it’s to obscure and obfuscate the truth to make themselves look good. Massive global debt-fueled bubble? No problem! Dangerous radiation levels still present from the Fukushima incident? Fake news! Our government has been proven time and time again to be guilty of covering up the truth, and the Japanese government is no different.
In the following video, Right Wing News looks at something that the Japanese government and the American government are desperately trying to downplay – the full severity of the Fukushima incident. Until today, the location of the nuclear cores is still unknown and the Pacific ocean continues to be contaminated by radiation. One nuclear engineer estimates that the effects of this disaster could last for 250,000 years. And what are the world governments doing about it? Nothing of course, but then again since when were they overly worried about the plight of the common citizen.
Life is already disappearing on the seas, our bodies will also be polluted with radiation, that will cause us countless cancers and diseases. Life on Earth is being threatened, and surely, many of us, will have early deaths as a consequence of this radiation. Wake up!
Do you remember Eyjafjallajokull — the obscure, unpronounceable Icelandic volcano that woke up in 2010 after nearly two centuries of slumber, grounding a large portion of the world's planes?
Well imagine living under its bigger, more dangerous cousin.
The large volcano, called Katla, is long overdue for a violent explosion and recently started rumbling.
At the base of Katla is a tiny town called Vik, and its residents have been living in the shadow of the expected eruption.
Katla is covered by Iceland's fourth largest glacier, and in places the ice is hundreds of metres thick.
It's one of the country's most feared volcanoes.
When it last erupted in 1918, it extended Iceland's south coast by up to five kilometres and the melting glacier unleashed a torrent of water, mud and icebergs — claimed to be similar in volume to the Amazon.
