The UN Human Rights Council recently released its report of the Israeli-Gaza conflict last summer known as Operation Protective Edge. The report cites violations of international law and alleged possible war crimes on both sides.
Prime Minister Netanyahu described the report as “morally flawed.” Dore Gold, Israel’s former ambassador to the United Nations and world renowned expert on Middle Eastern affairs, also responded to the report by describing Israel’s position and discussion on tunnels, timing on ending the confrontation, unnecessary deaths by the Palestinians and the protection of Israel afforded by Iron Dome.
The “big lie” is an expression coined by Adolf Hitler to describe his propaganda technique of telling a lie so colossal that no one would believe someone "could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” He first described this concept in Mein Kampf (German for "My Struggle"), the autobiographical manifesto outlining his plans for ruling Germany.
Exodus 17 tells how Amalekites, descendants of Esau’s grandson, attacked the children of Israel in the desert of Sinai during their exodus from Egypt. This unprovoked attack was especially serious and the Israelites battled all day, only achieving victory at nightfall.
In response to this demonstration of cruelty, the Lord told Moses that he would blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. Moses later recounted: “the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation” (Exodus 17:16). Amalek’s attack on the children of Israel was now a perpetual war between him and the God of Israel.
A brand new, first-of-its-kind Muslim college at Berkeley, California, received its accreditation March 15, 2015 from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

One, Hamza Yusuf, states that this first Muslim college gives “our community its first accredited academic address in the U.S. And we hope, God willing, that there will be more such Muslim colleges and universities to come.”
