By: Ryan Lee Hall

(Scroll down for video) An Ohio teenager will never get out of prison after he received three life sentences for going on a killing spree.

T.J. Lane, 18, pleaded guilty to shooting three students to death, and wounding three others in the Chardon High School cafeteria, east of Cleveland.

Investigators have said he admitted to the shooting, but he claims that he does not know why he did it.

At sentencing, Lane showed no remorse, instead, he was very disrespectful to the court and to the family of the deceased.

In court, he unbuttoned his blue dress shirt to show off his t-shirt with the words “killer” written across it.

He was smiling and gesturing obscenely. "The hand that pulled the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates to their memory," he said.

At first, the case was heard in juvenile court where the judge ruled that Lane was mentally competent to stand trial despite evidence that he suffered from hallucinations, psychosis and fantasies. The case was then transferred to regular court.

Lane had pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated murder, two counts of attempted aggravated murder and one count of felonious assault.
He was not eligible for the death penalty because he was 17 at the time of the shooting.

As Obama touched down in Israel, the Russian leader personally invited Netanyahu for talks to Moscow.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, has invited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Moscow in a letter congratulating him on the formation of a new government, an Israeli official said on Wednesday.

The invitation came as U.S. President Barack Obama was in Israel on his first visit to the Jewish state since taking office four years ago.

“Netanyahu received a congratulatory letter from Putin. The letter congratulates the prime minister in the formation of the new government in Israel and invited him to visit Moscow," the Israeli prime minister's spokesperson, Mark Regev told the press.

He added that a date for the visit has not yet been decided.
The Israeli coalition government took office on Monday after more than 40 days of tortuous negotiations that Netanyahu was forced to make concessions to members of the cabinet.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas visited Moscow last week, where he told Putin he hoped to begin peace talks with Israel later this year, but admitted that the chances were slim.

Police officer jailed after abandoning Israeli Embassy in London to have an affair

Melissa Ramsden, the woman with whom Ricci Giff had an affair 
By: David Ross

A British police officer was jailed after placing the Israeli Embassy under risk of attack, according to press reports in the United Kingdom.

The police officer who admitted to abandoning his duties to protect the Israeli Embassy in London has been sentenced to nine months in prison.

Ricci Giff, 38, who is married with two children, was responsible for the diplomatic protection. He admitted to leaving the patrol area three times, even when he should have been watching the Embassy of Israel, in order to carry out an affair with Melissa Ramsden, who is the public relations director of the Office of Tourism of the Government of Israel.

Melissa Ramsden later committed suicide.

Prosecutor Claire Howell said: "He was fully armed and presumably part of a high-profile unit caring for a high-profile target.
He, more than anyone, would have known the potentially catastrophic results if something happened and there was a delay in response time."

Although Giff said he had left his radio on in case of emergency, the judge said: "It is likely that in reality it would be very difficult for you to respond quickly if you were in the middle of making love with her during these periods.” Giff’s lawyer said that Giff had apologized to his wife and disappointed police colleagues.

Official Palestinian newspaper: 'U.S. behind 9-11 attacks', 'Hitler was greater than Roosevelt'

World Trade Center under attack on 9 11 2001 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

The Palestinian official newspaper wrote recently that the U.S. was behind the September 11, 2001 terror attacks and that Hitler was greater than president Roosevelt, according to press reports in Israel.

By Aryeh Savir

Tazpit News Agency For

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reports that two days before US President Barack Obama's visit to Israel and the PA, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, the official PA daily printed an anti-American op-ed along with pro-Hitler comments:

"Our history is replete with lies... [including] the lie about Al-Qaeda and the September 11 events, which asserted that Muslim terrorists committed it, and that it was not an internal American action by the Freemasons."
The op-ed further implies that Hitler was greater than both Churchill and Roosevelt, who were "alcoholics":

"Churchill and Roosevelt were alcoholics, and in their youth were questioned more than once about brawls they started in bars, while Hitler hated alcohol and was not addicted to it. He used to go to sleep early and wake up early, and was very organized. These facts have been turned upside down as well, and Satan has been dressed with angels' wings."

The PA daily op-ed further asserts that negative attitudes toward Nazism are not objective but the result of the West's victory:
"Had Hitler won, Nazism would be an honor that people would be competing to belong to, and not a disgrace punishable by law."

This follows the “warm welcome” given by the Arabs of Bethlehem to American officials, who came on Monday to prepare for President Barack Obama's visit to the city on Friday. They threw shoes and garbage at the vehicles of the entourage from the U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem.

Hundreds of Arabs mobbed the vehicles outside the Church of the Nativity, where Obama is scheduled to visit when he comes to Bethlehem. They further set fire to a “Welcome Obama” banner after it was spray-painted with swastikas and run over by a taxi cab.

Moments later, several people came onto Larson, including a woman later identified as Gabby Silverman, who grabbed away the chalk from Larson, violently cursing and pushing Larson repeatedly, even when she is trying to get away from the square.

As seen in the video, Silverman continues to push Larson all the way to the street, but Larson does not resist.

Israeli soldiers send powerful message to the world with music video

Israeli soldiers praying 
By: Sarah Weiss

(Scroll down for video) Dressed in their IDF uniform, these men have a powerful message for Israel haters.

They sing their message via a music video.
Here are some of the lyrics. The song is called I'm an Israeli soldier.

So let me hear you say I’m a criminal war
come on little punk that’s what you came here for,
You can take a photo you can stage it if its necessary
should I make an expression that's really scary...

As much as you lie you are dust on my sleeve
For 4000 years this country has been mine

Open a book its not a big mystery,
though I'm sure you failed the test in history

I dont give a damn about your ignorance or what you think of me I'm an Israeli soldier and proud to be!

Although Israel is so small in size compared to all other countries in the world, the tiny country might have the most patriotic citizens in the world.

Israeli people love their God given country and they are proud to serve the country.

In the video, they talk about the Jewish history of Judea and Samaria, which played a significant role throughout Jewish history.

Judea and Samaria always belonged to the Jews. King David and other prophets lived there as did Jesus.

“Jesus was here, but I hate to break it to you. I heard an awful rumor that he was Jew,” the soldiers sang.

The soldiers know the Jewish history and they are proud to protect it by all costs no matter what the ignorant people of the world say.

“The bottom line is even though it's painful to see. I’m an Israeli soldier and proud to be!”

England sends plane stuffed with cash to Cyprus

Cyprus bank location 
By: Debbie Gross

What happens when the bank runs out of money? Get cash from the plane.

Britain sent a military plane carrying one million euros in cash to Cyprus on Tuesday for its troops on the island as ATMs and bank cards stopped working, the Ministry of Defense, said.

About 3,500 British troops are based in Cyprus, which has been granted a bail out of 10 billion euros. A tax on depositors’ bank accounts as part of the deal provoked outrage and shook financial markets.

"A Royal Air Force flight left this afternoon to Cyprus with 1 million euros on board as a contingency measure to provide military personnel and their families with emergency cash in case ATMs and debit cards stop working completely," the Ministry of Defense said in a statement.

"We will keep this under review and consider additional shipments of cash if necessary," the Ministry of Defense, added.
British troops in Cyprus will be given the option of having their monthly salaries deposited in British bank accounts instead of Cyprus bank accounts in the future, the statement added.

The European Union and the International Monetary Fund are demanding Cyprus raise 5.8 billion euros from depositors to ensure the bailout needed to rescue its financial sector.

The Cyprus Government is working on a new proposal that could save smaller bank accounts after the original plan drew an angry response.

Former governor candidate arrested for Facebook fraud

Craig Berkman 
By: Eva Fett

A former aspiring politician was arrested and charged with fraud related charges after deceiving investors ahead of the Facebook IPO, according to a statement by the U.S. Attorney’s office in New York City.

The former candidate for governor of Oregon, was arrested Tuesday for his alleged role in defrauding investors waiting to buy shares of Facebook Inc before its IPO in May 2012, the federal authorities said.

Craig Berkman, 71, falsely told investors that he had access to facebook shares before it went public. He also claimed to have access to other social media companies like LinkedIn Corp., Groupon Inc. and Zynga Inc., the Securities and Exchange Commission of the Unite States, said in a statement.

But instead of buying shares for investors as promised, Berkman made ​​Ponzi-like payments to earlier investors and funded personal expenses, including costs of a bankruptcy case, according to the SEC, which filed a civil lawsuit against Berkman.

The defendant received at least $8 million from various schemes, according to U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in Manhattan, who filed a criminal complaint against Berkman.

Berkman was arrested at his home in Odessa, Florida, and appeared briefly before a federal judge in Tampa, Florida. A bail hearing was set for Thursday in Tampa.

The Manhattan U.S. Attorney's Office charged Berkman with two counts of securities fraud and two counts of wire fraud. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

Grandmother jailed after shooting her grandson while he pleaded with police for help

Sandra Layne 
By: Eva Fett

(Scroll down for video) A grandmother was arrested and charged with murder related charges after shooting her grandson at least 10 times while he was pleading on the phone to police for help, according to Detroit, Michigan, court proceedings.

The woman, who was identified as a 75-year-old, was convicted on Tuesday of second-degree murder for killing her teenage grandson last spring in her Detroit area home, after jurors rejected her claim that she shot him in self defense.

Sandra Layne cried quietly while hearing the verdict, which was delivered during the first day of jury deliberations. She was also found guilty of using a firearm during a felony and likely faces at least 14 years in prison for the death of her grandson, Jonathan Hoffman.

Defense attorney Jerome Sabbota later said that Layne was devastated by the verdict.
However, some family members had harsh words for the grandmother. The mother of Hoffman, Jennifer Hoffman, said her mother was a monster who deserved to go to jail.

"I'm glad that she is locked up and cannot hurt anyone else," Jennifer Hoffman, said. "He was a great guy and did not deserve to die like this," she added.

His father, Michael Hoffman, said the verdict was a "final vindication for my son."
Layne fired 10 shots at his 17-year-old grandson, hitting him six times in a span of six minutes during an argument last May at her home in West Bloomfield Township.

The evidence included a recording of the frantic emergency call Jonathan Hoffman made in which he pleaded for help, even as more shots were being fired.
"My grandmother shot me. I'm going to die. Help. She shot me again," he told the police dispatcher as he gasped for air.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Mother kills her two children after they talked back to her

By: Eva Fett

(Scroll down for video) A mother was arrested and charged with murder related charges after killing her children because they talked back to her, according to Tampa police reports in Florida.

Now, the mother accused of killing her two teenage children because they were mouthy was hospitalized, delaying her first scheduled court appearance.

Julie Schenecker, 50, was arrested Friday when police, responding to a call from a concerned relative, found her covered in blood on the back porch of her house.

The woman allegedly confessed to the officers on the scene that she had killed her 13-year-old son and then her daughter, 16-years-old, for being mouthy.

Police said that Schenecker shot her son in the face while on the way to soccer practice, and then went to the family home in north Tampa, where she shot her daughter in the back of the head, while the teenage student was sitting at her computer.

"I think we will never understand how or why a mother could take the lives of her children," police spokesperson Laura McElroy, said. "That was the only reason she told detectives at the scene," she added.

Schenecker's daughter, Calyx, 16, was found in an upstairs bedroom, and Beau, 13, was found in a van in the garage, McElroy said.
Both children had been shot with a .38 caliber pistol that police believe had been bought five days earlier.

The woman also wrote a note saying that her children talk back to her and were mouthy. She was charged with two counts of first degree murder.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

How can you turn $3 into $2 million? Buy a Chinese bowl.

A rare Chinese dish bought at a tag sale for $3 has sold at auction in New York for more than $2.22 million.

The bowl, estimated to be more than 1,000-years-old, was part of the opening session of fine Chinese ceramics and works of art at Sotheby Auction, Tuesday.

Sotheby said it was sold to a London dealer for $2.225 million, well above the estimated price of $200,000 to $300,000.
The person who put the bowl up for auction bought it in a tag sale in 2007 and it had been in his living room for several years.

He became curious about its origins and had it examined.

'The Bible' Satan looks like President Obama

"The Bible" Satan 
By: Moses Gold

(Scroll down for video) A new controversy has broken out just as President Obama is setting off for his trip to the Middle East.

Many people believe that the Satan character in “The Bible” was made to look like President Obama, according to press reports in the United States.

The Prince of Darkness is actually portrayed by Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni, who bears a striking resemblance to the commander in chief, thanks to makeup and some digital effects.

It is an interesting point, and one that is not totally unfounded. Is this a mere coincidence, or are the creators of the program trying to imply something? The History Channel issued a statement Monday that rejected the idea.

"History Channel has the greatest respect for President Obama," the network said. "The series was produced with a diverse international cast of actors. Shame on that person who made the false connection. 'The Bible' is meant to enlighten people on their rich and deep history."

“The Bible” is produced by the husband-and-wife team Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. Burnett, however, also donated to Obama's presidential campaign in 2008.

Burnett and Downey also issued a statement saying they "have nothing but respect and love" for Obama, "a Christian."
"This makes no sense," said the statement. "The actor who played Satan, is a highly acclaimed Moroccan actor. He previously played in several parts, including biblical epics satanic characters long before Barack Obama was elected as our president."Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
