Women did not have rights or opinions, he was in charge.”

|RUMORS OF WAR: US Secretary of Defense warns of coming war between Israel and Iran
||Posted: 27 Apr 2018 08:32 AM PDT
Direct conflict between Israeli and Iranian forces is increasingly likely in Syria as Tehran pursues a permanent military presence there, US Secretary of Defense James Mattis warned on Thursday. Addressing a congressional panel before hosting his Israeli counterpart, Avigdor Liberman, at the Pentagon, Mattis said it was “very likely” from his perspective, “because Iran continues to do its proxy work there through Hezbollah.” Receiving Liberman, Mattis told reporters that he saw no reason for Iran to ship advanced missiles to Hezbollah through Syria except to threaten Israel. “I can see how it
might start, but I am not sure when or where,” the secretary told lawmakers. Mattis then echoed Liberman’s warning from earlier in the day, issued through a Saudi newspaper, in which he said Israeli forces would strike Tehran if Iranian missiles ever hit Tel Aviv. The two met at the Pentagon after Liberman met with US President Donald Trump’s national security advisor, John Bolton; his special representative for international negotiations, Jason Greenblatt; and his son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, at the White House.

|Slim Majority of Americans Believe in God of the Bible, Numbers Decline Among Gen X, Millennials
||Posted: 27 Apr 2018 07:05 AM PDT
Although some 80 percent of Americans say they believe in God, only a slim majority of the nation’s approximately 327 million people believe in God as described in the Bible, according to results of a new study released by the Pew Research Center. And among those younger than 50, belief in the God of the Bible drops lower than 50 percent. The findings from the survey of more than 4,700 adults conducted nationwide between Dec. 4–18, 2017, reveal that one-third of Americans say they do not believe in the God of the Bible, but believe there is some other higher power or spiritual force in the universe. Applying these results to the general population, that translates to approximately 109 million people who believe
in a higher power that is not the God of the Bible. Only 56 percent of the people surveyed indicated that they believe in God “as described in the Bible” and the strongest supporters of this response were Christians who self-identified as members of the historically black Protestant and evangelical traditions. Some 92 percent of those who identified with the historically black Protestant tradition said they believe in God as described in the Bible while 91 percent of those who identified as evangelicals support that position. These groups also overwhelmingly supported the view that God is all-loving, all-knowing and all-powerful. READ MORE

|‘Censorship Is Not a Hoax’: Diamond and Silk Testify in Congress About Facebook Bias
||Posted: 27 Apr 2018 06:38 AM PDT
The pro-Trump, conservative, social media personalities known as “Diamond and Silk” claim Facebook has treated them like they’re a danger to the world. Facebook denies it, but the two women report the social media giant launched a campaign of “bias censorship and discrimination” against their D&S brand page. On Thursday they testified before Congress, passionately defending their claim and bashing the tech giant.
“Facebook along with other social media sites have taken aggressive actions to silence conservative voices such as ourselves by deliberately restricting and weaponizing our page with algorithms that censored and suppress our free speech,” the women said. “We’ve also noticed how someone with a liberal point of view that spewed hate against the President can garner up to 19 million views with only 539,000 followers, yet we have 1.2 million followers and only received 13,000 views on our video.” READ MORE

|Iranian Naval Commander Threatens To Sink US Ships, Create “Catastrophic Situation” If Trump Kills Deal
||Posted: 26 Apr 2018 10:53 AM PDT
President Donald Trump offered some of his most bellicose rhetoric yet about Iran on Tuesday when he said Iran would have “bigger problems than they have ever had before” if the country’s leadership dared to restart its nuclear program following a US pull-out of the JCPOA (otherwise known as the Iran deal), per the Times of Israel. And today, a top Iranian general hit back at Trump with an aggressive threat to
sink US Navy ships, while warning that the US would find itself in a “catastrophic situation” if it withdraws from the deal and reimposes economic sanctions. “The actual information that the Americans have about us is much less than what they think they have. When will they figure this out? When it is too late,” the Revolutionary Guard Corps’s navy commander, Admiral Ali Fadavim, told Iranian television on Saturday. READ MORE
|Vanuatu urges 11,000 Residents to evacuate NOW in wake of erupting volcano
||Posted: 26 Apr 2018 10:45 AM PDT
The archipelago nation east of Australia is attempting to evacuate all 11,000 people who live on Ambae Island to nearby Santo Island because of ongoing eruptions at the Manaro volcano, according to the Guardian. A state of emergency was declared and many people began having respiratory problems as the smoke and ash from the eruption filled the air, the report added. Evacuations were even more difficult because of heavy rain that triggered flooding and mudslides, the Guardian also said. Vanuatu’s leaders
are also keeping an eye on several other volcanoes rumbling on islands near Ambae, Radio New Zealand reported. “It is really challenging for the affected community, it is their home and all they know, they’ve been there for their entire life,” Cate Heinrich, UNICEF Pacific’s chief of communications, told the Guardian. “At the moment, our priority is helping women and children who have been affected, making sure children have safe spaces and helping them begin to process and understand what is happening to their home, using techniques like drawing.” READ MORE

||Posted: 26 Apr 2018 10:35 AM PDT

An earthquake of magnitude 5.2 struck a town near the Iranian capital Tehran on Wednesday night, state media reported, but there were no initial reports of casualties or significant damage.

Authorities said they were gathering information about the latest quake, which hit in the late evening at a depth of 7 km (4 miles).

The quake was also felt in Alborz, Qazvin, Qom, Gilan and Markazi provinces, according to state media. READ MORE
