Hezbollah warns Israel against maritime border threats
Hezbollah on Wednesday issued a stark warning to Jerusalem, vowing to protect its maritime rights against "Israeli threats."
The comments by Hezbollah deputy chief Sheikh Naim Qassem came on the background of Israeli plans to mark the two countries’ maritime border to ensure unrestricted access to lucrative natural gas reserves. Lebanon “will remain vigilant in order to regain its full rights, whatever it takes,” Lebanese news website Naharnet quoted Qassem as saying

Russia Prevents Quartet from Demanding PA Recognition of Israel
Russia has prevented the Quartet from issuing a demand that the PA acknowledge Israel as the Jewish State as the basis for negotiations in exchange for Israel’s acceptance of the 1949 Armistice lines (which are commonly called '67 borders, but were never recognized as such) as the basis for negotiations.
Russia also refused to refrain from raising the PA statehood bid at the UN this coming September.
Nabil Sha’ath, who is responsible for international relations in the PA, spoke to the WAFA news agency. “Russia has fulfilled an important and decisive role in preventing the Quartet from making these declarations. We want to praise the Russian position, and thank its Foreign Minister, for his support of the Palestinians.”

15 Examples That Show Many Americans Have Become So Desperate
More Americans than ever are desperate for money and many of them will do just about anything to get it. The crumbling U.S. economy has pushed millions of ordinary Americans to the brink of utter desperation.
In the United States today, we are actually witnessing the death of the middle class. Our jobs have been shipped overseas, the banks have enslaved us to debt, the government keeps finding more ways to tax us and the Federal Reserve keeps debasing our currency.
The system is dying and society is coming apart.

How Globalism Has Destroyed Our Jobs, Businesses and National Wealth
Today, the U.S. government has surrendered massive amounts of economic sovereignty to global organizations such as the WTO, the IMF and the World Bank. The United States has also entered into a whole host of very damaging "free trade agreements" such as NAFTA that are costing our economy huge numbers of jobs.
Our politicians always promised us that globalism would bring us to a new level of prosperity, but instead that "giant sucking sound" that you hear is the sound of the U.S. economy being hollowed out.
That is exactly what the policies of the U.S. government have been doing for decades - they have been waging war on jobs.
Both political parties have been eagerly pushing us into a globalized economy. Both political parties have told us not to worry as thousands of businesses, millions of jobs and trillions of dollars have left the country.

Brits to shut grid for solar flare
The British government has been warned that a massive surge of energy from the sun could hit the Earth in the next 18 months. In a worst-case scenario, it could blow out the national grid and leave parts of the country without electricity for months.
Scientists have warned that Britain could be disabled by a solar flare five times more powerful than one in 1989 that plunged six million people in Quebec into darkness and caused power disruption as far as California.

Religious Freedom Group Sues Perry Over Planned All-Day Prayer Event in Texas
A Wisconsin-based religious freedom group is suing Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a possible Republican presidential contender, in an effort to block his promotion of and participation in an all-day Christian prayer event to be held Aug. 6, arguing that it violates the constitutional separation of church and state.
