Russia demands US warplanes leave Syrian airspace, begins bombing Snackbars in Hama province

Russia has begun carrying out air strikes in Syria against opponents of President Bashar al-Assad, Moscow has confirmed.

The strikes reportedly hit the rebel-controlled area of Hama province.
Washington was informed an hour before that they were about to take place.
Russian defence officials say the strikes targeted the the Islamic State group, but an unnamed US official told Reuters that so far they did not appear to be targeting IS-held territory.

Syria's civil war has raged for four years, with an array of armed groups fighting to overthrow the government.

The US and its allies have insisted that President Assad should leave office, while Russia has backed its ally remaining in power.
The latest developments came amid reports that President Assad had formally requested Russian military support.

Reports from Russia say the upper house of the Russian parliament granted President Vladimir Putin permission to deploy the Russian air force in Syria.

‘Clock Boy’ Ahmed Mohamed Just Went To NYC, And Look What Mayor de Blasio Did

Webmaster addition: More bullshit (why mince words?) from Pamela Geller bemoaning the fact that another Muslim-bash has exploded in her face. Pamela is still pushing the idea that Ahmed intended to build a device that looked like a bomb. But it looks like a bomb only to a total idiot. For one thing, there is no explosive, fake or otherwise; no sticks of TNT or dynamite, no blocks of plastic explosive! And I am getting sick and tired of Geller's constant hate-mongering!

UN is an ‘entirely corrupt body’ – Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters

Waters said the UN is an interesting example of the “pretense of decision making,” but it should nevertheless exist and that is an important institution. However, he said that having five Security Council members with veto power is “a redundant notion.”

“There can be things that are fundamentally important politically – particularly in the Middle East where everyone is fighting everyone else as hard as they can all of the time – which can never actually get the support that they deserve, or a lot of the things can’t … unless the United States decides that they can."

Russian parliament unanimously approves use of military in Syria to fight ISIS

The upper chamber of the Russian parliament has unanimously given a formal consent to President Putin to use the nation’s military in Syria to fight terrorism at a request from the Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Consent was necessary for use of the country's military for foreign combat missions under the Russian constitution. . .

. . . Ivanov stressed that no ground operations are planned in Syria. Russia would use its warplanes to hit terrorist targets when requested by the Syrian government. He stressed that unlike the US-led coalition of countries that bombs militant troops in Syria, Russia was invited to do so by the legal authorities of Syria and thus follows international law.

Most Palestinians no longer support two-state solution

Perhaps more worrying from a sentiment point of view is that nearly two-thirds of those surveyed (65 percent) said they did not believe the two-state solution was any longer practical because of Israel's settlement expansion in the West Bank.
Note: That was the goal of Israel since 1948.

How anti-Semitism helped Israel reverse Reykjavik’s boycott vote

Their reaction to the move by Iceland’s capital followed the standard response to the growing movement for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS): any criticism of Israel must really be motivated by a hatred of Jews instead of, say, mountains of evidence of Israel’s war crimes against Palestinians.

The Greatest Threat to Campus Free Speech is Coming From Dianne Feinstein and her Military-Contractor Husband

One of the most dangerous threats to campus free speech has been emerging at the highest levels of the University of California system, the sprawling collection of 10 campuses that includes UCLA and UC Berkeley. The university’s governing Board of Regents, with the support of University President Janet Napolitano and egged on by the state’s legislature, has been attempting to adopt new speech codes that — in the name of combating “anti-Semitism” — would formally ban various forms of Israel criticism and anti-Israel activism.
Note: One has to wonder how much more the people will take. Had enough yet!
