A Tennessee high school student claims she was standing up for her religious beliefs in the classroom when she was suspended after breaking a class rule of saying “bless you” when a classmate sneezed. Dyer County High School senior Kendra Turner says her teacher told her that language was for church. (Is the teacher a Muslim?)
WMC “She said that we’re not going to have godly speaking in her class, and that’s when I said we have a constitutional right,” Turner says. Turner says when she defended her actions, she was told to see an administrator. She says she finished the class period in in-school suspension. Turner’s family met with school leaders Tuesday. They say the teacher claimed Turner was being disruptive and aggressive. Some classmates showed support Tuesday by wearing hand made bless you shirts.
Turner said she doesn’t want trouble for her teacher but says she’ll stand up for her faith. “It’s alright to defend God and it’s our constitutional right because we have a freedom of religion and freedom of speech,” said Turner.

With reports of continued massacres and kidnappings of hundreds more of the Yazidi religious minority, the UN Security Council has responded to the crisis by unanimously adopting a resolution imposing sanctions on six men for recruiting and financing jihadist fighters in northern Iraq and Syria.
And I’m sure the ISIS terrorists are just shaking in their boots as they watch their $2 billion war chest continue to grow.
He says, “ISIS, al-Nusra, and all the Wahabis are Jewish creations intended to tear apart the Islamic nation.”
Yep, when in doubt, blame the Joooooos!
And CNN does not challenge him. I guess they are unaware that Egypt has demolished more than 1600 smuggling tunnels between Gaza and Egypt. And that Israel has found large caches of weapons, missiles and launchers inside them as well as Hamas terrorists trying to sneak into Israel from the tunnels.

If it weren’t for Hamas, Israel wouldn’t need the Iron Dome, you idiots. The UN’s top human rights official again condemned Israel for its military actions to stop Hamas rocket attacks against Israeli civilians, accusing the Jewish state of “deliberately defying International Law… in a way that may constitute war crimes.”

Navi Pillay, UN degenerate
Breitbart Navi Pillay told reporters following yet another “emergency” meeting of the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council that Israel was not doing enough to protect civilians. “There is a strong possibility,” said the known Israel critic, “that international law has been violated, in a manner that could amount to war crimes.”
Among the UN’s long bill of particulars against the beleaguered Jewish state comes the almost unbelievable accusation that Israel’s refusal to share its Iron Dome ballistic missile defense shield with the “governing authority” of Gaza – i.e. Hamas, the terror group created to pursue the extermination of the Jewish state and now waging a terrorist war against it – constitutes a war crime against the civilians of Gaza.

The UN chairwoman criticized the U.S. for helping fund Israel’s Iron Dome system which has saved countless Israeli and Palestinian lives. “No such protection has been provided to Gazans against the shelling,” she said. Just because Hamas fires rockets indiscriminately aimed at Israeli civilian population centers without provocation and fires them from within its own population centers does not “absolve” Israel from its own legal violations, Pillay told reporters Thursday.
Marking the end of her contentious, six-year term as chairman of the notoriously anti-Israel UNHRC, Pillay saved her harshest condemnations for what she termed Israeli “targeting” of UN-run schools and hospitals in Gaza. She did not mention, nor was she reminded by any of the reporters present, that as of this writing, at least three UN-run schools in Gaza have been used as rocket warehouses, a gross violation of international law that clearly falls within the category of war crimes.
Neither did she mention, nor was she reminded, that in at least two of the three cases cited above, the terror rockets found on UN property in Gaza were returned to Hamas by the UN. “What I’m seeing now is a recurrence of the very acts that the Gaza fact-finding mission indicated as constituting war crimes and crimes against humanity,” she said.
The UN’s Human Rights Council has long been a source of deep embarrassment to some UN supporters all-too-conscious that the council is widely regarded as a cesspool of anti-Israel and anti-Jewish hatred, manipulated by the world’s very worst human rights abusers to cover up their own gross abuses of human rights by scapegoating Israel.
While Israel is the only country in the world that remains a standing agenda item at every session, the human rights body has to date said nothing about the recent Russian-backed shooting down of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine, nor has it condemned the ongoing mass killings in Syria or South Sudan. North Korea, China, Pakistan, Syria, Sudan, or Iran, all recent or current members of the council, have never been condemned by it.
The UNHRC has never formally mentioned “Hamas” by name, let alone condemned it.
From 2006 through 2012, Israel was formally condemned by the UNHRC at least 47 times.

A Webster man says his apartment complex manager told him his American flag was a “threat to the Muslim community,” and that he has to take it down. But he’s not giving up without a fight. Duy Tran says, one thing is clear: “The flag means a lot to me.”
KHOU He’s talking about his American flag that he proudly put up when he moved in just a few days ago. But then an apartment manager at the Lodge on El Dorado told him he had to take it down. “What really stunned me is that she said it’s a threat towards the Muslim community,” said Tran. “I’m not a threat toward anybody.”
But there are other patriotic symbols hanging from other balconies in the complex, and Tran doesn’t plan to budge. To Tran it’s about so much more than stars and stripes. “I have friends that died for this country,” he said.
