There's probably a Quranic prophecy about it too.

And maybe a Scientologist one too. Xenu is planning things.

'They Accept Us as We Are;' Christians Join Forces With Muslim Group Hezbollah to Fight ISIS in Lebanon

Quote:
Last fall, The Christian Post reported that GOP 2016 presidential candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was booed after he offended some Middle Eastern Christians by declaring at an event in Washington, D.C. that “Christians have no greater ally than Israel.”

Mark Tooley, president of the Institute of Religion and Democracy and an attendee at the evening event, later wrote in a blog entry that he was not surprised by the reaction.

“It’s no secret that many Mideast Christians generally aren’t big fans of Israel. I learned this firsthand during the 2006 Israel war on Hezbollah, when my discussion at church with a Lebanese Christian nearly escalated to a shouting match,” wrote Tooley.

“Sometimes American Christians romanticize overseas persecuted Christians into disembodied noble souls unaffected by terrestrial concerns. But they, like everybody else, have histories, loyalties, resentments, grievances, and political calculations.”

Abducted Christina reunited with her parents after 3 years - World Watch Monitor

Quote:
After almost three years in captivity, an Iraqi Christian girl abducted by the Islamic State in August 2014 has finally been reunited with her parents.

Christina Abada, who is about to celebrate her sixth birthday, was welcomed home at around 10am this morning, local time. Locals say she was released by the Iraqi Special Forces.
Something about the tone of the story bugs me, but there's some small happy from the region.

Also, in different Palestine news: Birzeit University ranked in top 3 percent of world's universities

Btw, when I was there in 2002 I saw hardly any head scarves there, fewer than in a Dutch university.

He suggested that Kelly is a “sociopath” or “psychopath,” and also said Kelly is “not feminine” but instead is “cold, robotic, dead.” He added, “I felt zero attraction to Megyn Kelly.”
Why did he think his attraction or lack of thereof towards her was even relevant?
Quote:
During an exchange about whether Kelly will interview Trump, Jones asked her whether she would sit in Trump’s lap, to which Kelly responded, “Move on.” Jones also said, “I got to say, she’s prettier in person.” Kelly responded, “I never know whether that’s a compliment or not in my line of work.”
Why would he even say that? Is he trying to intentionally appeal to the slimeball bracket?

There's a risk of the entire building collapsing. (On reflection it's probably going to have be demolished anyway.)

But once the ash has settled ... there's going to be a lot to uncover about how this could happen. No central fire alarm. Recent renovations. Some have said there was a highly flammable cladding. Certainly the fire spread amazingly quickly. Residents had complained about the fire risk in the past.
