Amihai Ariel, the father of Hallel Ariel, a 13-year-old Israeli girl who was brutally murdered on June 30, held a memorial ceremony for her on Tuesday on the Temple Mount. In an unmitigated act of bravery, he defied the Muslim religious authority and performed a powerful Temple ritual, right under their watchful eyes. Even more incredible was that the blessing was said outright in front of the Islamic Waqf.

With Thursday’s tragic mass killing by a resclusive, truck-driving Tunisian maniac in Nice having been violently drowned out by the frentic late Friday news of a failed (and perhaps staged) coup in Turkey, the news cycle has once again shifted its attention away from a far greater threat to the global economy than whether Erdogan can concentrate even more power in his grasp.

The US Navy’s sonar levels may harm whales and other marine mammals in the world’s oceans, so they must be scaled back, a San Francisco federal appeals court has ruled.
Territorial disputes are a delicate thing… and potentially deadly as well. That’s why the U.S. is backing up its positions with an ever-increasing presence of warships in the South China Sea. China is very touchy about these territories, and unwilling to give up what they perceive as their waters, even as a UN tribunal just denied their claims and strengthened the U.S. hand.
