Whatever they were, they are now dead by hanging. There is no audio (Liveleak now bans it) but you can be sure there’s crowd of cheering onlookers.

Israel National News The report said that Father Gabriel Nadaf, a Greek-Orthodox priest active in a group founded in 2012 and which supports and works toward more Christian Israelis joining the army, held a meeting at the home of a local family in the Galilee town of Shfaram. Nadaf has advocated for a strong connection among Arab Christians with the State of Israel and has been sanctioned by the official Greek Orthodox church over his views. Arab MKs have also condemned him, calling him “an agent of Zionism who seeks to divide Arabs.”
Supporters of the initiative told Haaretz that the impetus for the rising numbers of recruits might be coming from outside Israel – attacks on churches in Egypt and the beheading of priests in Syria have strengthened the view that the Arab world cannot be relied on, and therefore integration into Israel is the best protection for them.

Observers France24 In the past few years, immigration both from Syria and from African countries has soared. Centre for Legal Aid in Bulgaria, says about 80% of those who come to seek their advice are from African countries: In the past year, out of all the cases of Africans her organization has worked on, only one person was granted asylum: And it was a special case – she was a woman with serious health problems, which was a decisive factor.”
This video was filmed on January 16 at Ovcha Kupel, the largest refugee centre in Sofia. It is home to approximately 800 asylum seekers, according to figures from the State Agency for Refugees. According to the local press, more than 70 people were forcefully evicted from the centre that day.
The Israel Minister of Housing and Construction Uri Ariel on Friday expressed his wish to see the construction of a “Third Temple” in place of the Al-Aqsa Mosque that is currently occupying the temple mount. Uri Ariel said “The first Temple was destroyed in 586 BCE, the second Temple in 70 CE, and ever since the Jewish People have been mourning its loss.”
The conference, entitled “American Security and the Iranian Bomb: Analyzing Threats at Home and Abroad,” saw several prominent members of Congress and former CIA Director James Woolsey discuss the threat posed to the US by the Islamic Republic. Franks said, ”It’s outrageous that this administration has become the chief lobbyist for Iran and has now extended them the ability to have a protected protocol going forward to be able to enrich uranium.”
UK Telegraph The opening day of the trial for the third and most serious set of charges he faces ended in farcical scenes, as his lawyers walked out and the defendants and their supporters chanting slogans. Previous court hearings were overshadowed by Mr Morsi’s barking at the judges, refusing to recognize them and insisting that he remained the legitimate president.
This time his principal lawyer, Mohammed Salim al-Awa, said he was withdrawing from the case as his client could not hear what was happening. Mr Morsi himself was briefly heard, shouting: “This is a farce. All this because you are afraid of me – you are afraid that the president is speaking.”
This set of charges accuses Mr Morsi and other Brotherhood leaders of espionage and plotting against the country with foreign powers – mainly Hamas, the Gaza-based Palestinian group which is an offshoot of the Brotherhood. The prosecution have described the “plot” as the biggest criminal conspiracy in Egypt’s history. The court adjourned the case to February 23, and ordered a new team of lawyers to be appointed for the defendants.
CBS News An Israeli company has developed a first of its kind 3D holographic technology it says, could pave the way to a new era of interventional medicine. RealView Imaging LTD says it has recently completed a successful clinical study in which surgeons used live-action 3D holograms of their patients’ beating heart to help them operate.
RealView’s prototype system allowed surgeons to view, touch and manipulate a three dimensional image of the patient’s heart “floating” in mid-air during minimally-invasive cardiac procedures. RealView’s medical director, Elchanan Bruckheimer, says the system gives surgeons information about the entire organ in real time.
The system operates by using data analysis and densed projection of light. Measurements and dimensions produced by x-rays, MRI or ultrasound images create the hologram and technology that uses light-scattering to project the image onto a fixed point in space does the rest, according to RealView president and co-founder Shaul Gelman.
“The system is involving two main aspects. One is computation, which receives 3D data sets and computes the hologram. And then after the computation of the hologram, the system has an electro-optical part that actually propagates this light into space and reconstructs the image in free air, allowing the user to go and interact with the image.”
In nation after nation, Christians are being slaughtered by radical Islamists for their beliefs. … Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote that “The cross is laid on every Christian. It begins with the call to abandon the attachments of this world. … When Christ calls a man, He bids him come and die.” And today, around the world, many Christians are living out that calling. That is a shooting war over religion, not a silent one.
Today I want to tell you about a war the mainstream media is ignoring. From Boston to Zanzibar, there is a worldwide war on Christianity.
Ever since 9/11, commentators have tried to avoid pointing fingers at Islam. While it is fair to point out that most Muslims are not committed to violence against Christians, this is not the whole truth and we should not let political correctness stand in the way of the truth. …
We send billions of dollars a year to Pakistan and Egypt. We helped put new Islamic regimes in place in Afghanistan and Iraq. President Obama now sends arms to Islamic Rebels in Syria. In Egypt the al-Qaedamob attacked our embassy and burned our flag. I don’t know about you, but I’ve had enough.
