End of the week already? Well, at least we’re back.

May Leslie Gore rest in peace.

International Politics

Overall

– Western media was eager to report on an Israeli journalist walking in Paris for 10 hours facing “discrimination” by Muslims. Turns out it was all fabricated.

– Russian President Vladimir Putin: Despite other nations assume they can match our military might, we are still superior

– Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is actively trying to stop P5+1-Iranian negotiations

Middle East

– In contrast to the lazy Western mainstream analysis of the Islamic State (looking at you The Atlantic), the Islamic State operates with a top-down structure with a council making most of the decisions. A consequence of this is defection among some leaders who do not like certain decisions.

– Officials at the United Nations said they were prepared to release a report on war criminals in Syria

– A Muslim preacher told Al-Monitor military efforts against ISIL would not work and it would best to help out the youth

– U.S. officials want to launch an offensive to capture Mosul from the ISIS

– Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman called for laws making it legal to execute Palestinian political prisoner
