Gilaad Shaar -16, Naftali Frenkel-16, Eyal Yifrach-19
Israel ripped the United Nations on Thursday after the international body claimed it had “no information to confirm” that three Israeli teens were kidnapped last week in the West Bank.
Algemeiner.com reports that the UN initially condemned the kidnappings, which Israel believes are the work of Hamas operatives. The UN said the Secretary General Ban Ki-moon expressed solidarity with the teens’ families and called for them to be released.
However, Ban’s deputy spokesman Farhan Haq walked back the statement soon after, claiming the UN could not confirm the kidnappings.
Israel’s mission to the UN condemned the statement, calling the UN hypocritical.
The missing teens 16-year-old Naftali Fraenkel, who has dual Israeli-American citizenship, Eyal Yifrah, 19, and Gilad Shaar, also 16, disappeared late Thursday at a hitchhiking junction in the West Bank on their way home from their religious school. The case has riveted the nation’s attention, receiving around-the-clock coverage in local media.

The United States on Thursday cut aid to Uganda, imposed visa restrictions and canceled a regional military exercise in response to a Ugandan law that imposes harsh penalties on homosexuality.
The United States on Thursday cut aid to Uganda, imposed visa restrictions and canceled a regional military exercise in response to a Ugandan law that imposes harsh penalties on homosexual rape, child molestation and intentional inflicting of AIDS. Homosexual acts have been illegal in Uganda for decades.

Homosexuality is taboo in most African countries and illegal in 37, including in Uganda where it has been a crime since British rule.
Homosexuality is taboo in most of the world and illegal in at least 78 across the globe, including in Uganda where it has been a crime since British rule.
Uganda’s new law, signed by President Yoweri Museveni in February, imposes jail terms of up to life for “aggravated homosexuality” which includes homosexual sex with a minor or while HIV-positive.
Correct, but in direct contradiction with their first paragraph which claims the new law outlaws “homosexuality”, unless of course rape, incest and pedophilia are considered “homosexual rights”.
Widely condemned by donor countries, the law also criminalizes lesbianism for the first time and makes it a crime to help individuals engage in homosexual acts.
“Donor countries”? Note the incongruity between “criminalizes lesbianism” and “makes it a crime to help individuals engage in homosexual acts” Lesbianism is and always has been homosexuality, and we see how the right to trick children into thinking they are homosexual is seen as a homosexual right.
The argument about the legitimacy of foreign aid aside, 40 percent of Ugandans still lack access to clean water and 25 percent live below the poverty line. The White House sees fit to punish these people in order to establish special rights for homosexuals. How caring of them.
Most of the guns seized from gang members, felons and drug traffickers in eight U.S. cities over a decade were handguns, not the automatic assault rifles often depicted in Hollywood crime stories, according to a study published on Monday.
In the sample of 10,435 weapons seized by police in cities that included Los Angeles and Washington, 77 percent were handguns, and seven out of 10 of those were semi-automatic, according to the Geneva-based research project Small Arms Survey. The guns were seized from 2002 to 2012.
Less than 12 percent of the confiscated weapons were rifles, and the number of machine guns, submachine guns and machine pistols recovered by police were negligible, said the study “Small Arms Survey 2014: Women and Guns.”
The findings contrasted with how criminal firearm use is often depicted in popular culture, with TV shows, movies and songs depicting scenes of gang members and drug dealers spraying automatic assault rifles, leading to a warped public perception of gun violence, program director Keith Krause said.

A husband and wife who’ve been feeding the homeless and other needy people in a city park for a year are no longer allowed there after police cited them for illegally feeding a crowd.
The citations and trespass warnings against Chico and Debbie Jimenez and their volunteers are part of an increased effort by the police to discourage Good Samaritans from steering homeless people away from the agencies set up to provide the same services. It’s part of the city’s and county’s broader effort to eventually centralize homeless services.
“The ordinance is there, so if we catch you, we’re going to cite you,” Police Chief Mike Chitwood said Thursday. “If you want to feed people, and you want to do a good, Christian act, we encourage you to coordinate with the social service agencies.”
The Jimenezes were feeding about 40 people Wednesday afternoon in Manatee Island Park, where they said they’ve been feeding anyone who shows up for the past year.
“We feed anybody that’s hungry,” Chico Jimenez said.

Army Staff Sergeant Cory Schroeder was told by University of Wyoming’s (UW) student government that he would not be allowed to say the Pledge of Allegiance before its meetings because it could offend international students.
Schroeder was newly elected in May as a senator in the Associated Students of the University of Wyoming (ASUW) government to serve for the upcoming school year. He has been in the Army for over six years and completed a tour of duty in both Afghanistan and Iraq.
Schroeder became upset when he realized the meetings did not open with the option of saying the Pledge.
“Multiple senators sat me down and said it was a ‘very touchy subject’ and ‘we don’t want to offend anybody,’” Schroeder told Campus Reform.
Schroeder spoke with ASUW Vice President Ricardo Lind-Gonzales, who allegedly said that he would put the issue of the Pledge on the agenda and that Schroeder would be given a chance to speak about it. However, the issue was subsequently left off the agenda for the remainder of the school year.

The U.S. Patent Office ruled that the Washington Redskins name is “disparaging of Native Americans” and federal trademarks for the name have to be canceled.
The 2-1 ruling came Wednesday after a campaign to change the name gained momentum over the past year. The team doesn’t immediately lose trademark protection and is allowed to retain it during an appeal.
Redskins owner Dan Snyder has refused to change the team’s name, citing tradition, but there has been growing pressure including statements in recent months from President Barack Obama, lawmakers of both parties and civil rights groups.
Bob Raskopf, trademark attorney for the team, said he expects the ruling to be overturned on appeal.
