Obama laces into Trump for whipping up terrorism fears

Obama laces ionto TrumpPresident Barack Obama ripped into Donald Trump on Tuesday for criticizing him for not using the phrase "radical Islam" and for renewing his proposed Muslim ban, warning about the danger that the presumptive Republican nominee would pose as president.

Should the United States “fall into the trap of painting all Muslims with a broad brush” and “imply that we are at war with an entire religion,” Obama said after a meeting with his National Security Council at the Treasury Department, “then we are doing the terrorists’ work for them.”

Israel extends detention of Palestinian clown

Mohammad Abu Sakha, 23, teaches at the Palestinian Circus School in Birzeit, near Ramallah.

Here’s What Happened When A Terrorist Attacked LGBT People In A Country With Strict Gun Laws

Israel and gay attackLike Florida shooter Omar Mateen, Yishai Schlissel was a homophobic extremist determined to kill gay people. But Schlissel, unlike Mateen, lived in a country with strict gun laws: Israel. When Schlissel attacked a gay pride parade in Jerusalem a year ago, he was armed with a knife, not an assault rifle.

He stabbed six people, killing a 16-year-old girl before he was apprehended. Mateen used a semiautomatic assault-style rifle to shoot more than 100 people in a Florida gay nightclub early Sunday, killing 49, before law enforcement officers shot him to death.

The attacker was also killed in the ensuing confrontation with police, while a 3-year-old boy was rescued by officers.

Daesh’s Amaq news agency cited an unnamed “source” as saying a Daesh fighter carried out the attack, but the extremist jihadist group has not officially claimed responsibility for the attack.


Goldman Sachs hired prostitutes to win Libyan business, court told

Goldman sachs doled out prostitutes for Lybian fundsGoldman Sachs bankers paid for prostitutes, private jets and five-star hotels and held business meetings on yachts to win business from a Libyan investment fund set up under Gaddafi regime, the high court in London was told yesterday.

The allegations came at the start of a legal claim by the Libyan Investment Authority for $1.2bn (£846m) from the investment bank. Lawyers for the LIA are claiming for losses on nine trades that Goldman Sachs executed for the fund between January and April 2008.


Trump was accused of destroying email evidence in lawsuit 10 years ago

Trump accused of erasing emailsIn 2006, when a judge ordered Donald Trump's casino operation to hand over several years' worth of emails, the answer surprised him: The Trump Organization routinely erased emails and had no records from 1996 to 2001. The defendants in a case that Trump brought said this amounted to destruction of evidence, a charge never resolved.

At that time, a Trump IT director testified that until 2001, executives in Trump Tower relied on personal email accounts using dial-up Internet services, despite the fact that Trump had launched a high-speed Internet provider in 1998 and announced he would wire his whole building with it. Another said Trump had no routine process for preserving emails before 2005.
