US Suspects Iran Seized UAF Oil Tanker


Iran is admitting that it has control of an oil tanker from the United Arab Emirates that went missing three days ago.

  • The Israel Defense Forces (IDF), in conjunction with Israel’s security agency, Shin Bet, uncovered this week a Hamas money-laundering scheme in the West Bank.
  • Hamas also is working to continuing to spread anti-Israel hatred across the world. One Hamas official called on Palestinians to “attack every Jew on earth” if Israel does not lift its blockage along the Gaza coast.
  • The state of Oregon has passed a law requiring schools to teach about the Holocaust and combat anti-Semitism.
  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reprimanded the European Union for not imposing sanctions against Iran for its violation of the 2015 nuclear deal.
