Rashuan Salman, his wife Dina, and his daughter were making their way from Umm Tuba to Jerusalem, when they were attacked.

"They tried to pull us out of the car and they hit us. It seemed that they intended to kill us. They tried to open the door and my wife begged them to leave us alone. She spoke in Arabic, and only then did they realize that we are Arabs. I hit the gas and drove away as fast as possible," Salman said.

"Me and my wife look Jewish. Even the police officer who arrived at the scene, said he was sure we are Jews. He told us that this kind of thing happens all the time," he also said.

Jerusalem Police said that they have launched an investigation into the incident, but so far, no arrests have been made.

French company names cleaning detergent ‘Cyclone B’ same is deadly Nazi gas

Zyklon B poison 
By: Eva Fett

A French company came under fire for naming a cleaning product “Cyclone B,” which is similar to the deadly Nazi gas used to kill thousands of Jews during World War Two.

Now, the French company has stopped selling the product, which was used across the European Union.

The product “Cyclone B” made by IPC-Sa was reminiscent of the poison "Zyklon B," which the Nazis used to kill hundreds of thousands of Jews in gas chambers during the Holocaust.

"This is horrible ignorance at best and a Guinness World Record of injustice and cynicism, if the company knew the name of the Nazi poison," Rabbi Menachem Margolin, Director General of the European Jewish Association, which condemned the use of the name after the matter was brought to his group’s attention, said.

A spokesperson for the detergent manufacturer said that the company has decided to rename the product after complaints that it is offensive to the victims of the Holocaust.

Man arrested for breaking bed while having loud sex

The apartment where Disney broke the items (center) 
By: John Roberts

Police were called after neighbors heard people having sex in an apartment, which was supposed to be empty.

Adam Disney, 28, of Liverpool, England, was arrested at the scene.

It all began when Disney took a female friend to his old apartment, which he no longer lived at, but still had the key to the door.

The woman fled from the scene before police arrived.

When police questioned Disney, it became clear that he did not have permission to use the apartment.

In addition to his entering without permission of the owner, police found that the couple had broken things in the apartment during their loud and passionate love making.

The damages included a broken bed, a broken curtain rod and a broken window sill.

According to police, officers said that Disney smelled of alcohol.

Disney’s attorney, Dan Lupton, said that the couple was “carried away with the intensity of physical relations,” which lead to the damage of the bed and curtains.

The window sill however, broke when Disney looked out the window while smoking.

Lupton described the apartment as shabby.

“The window sill was loose and the curtain was not secured very well. This was not a posh hotel room,” the attorney said.

Disney was originally charged with burglary with intent to cause damage, but the charge was later changed to criminal damage.

He was ordered to pay a fine of about $600 for the damages.

Tenant seen on video smashing apartment after landlord refuses to return his deposit

The tenant 
By: David Ross

(Scroll down for video) A man thought it was a good idea to smash up a rented apartment and show his handiwork to the world.

In the video named “vengeance d'un locatiare,” which means revenge of a tenant, the angry tenant is seen destroying his apartment with a hammer.

The French man reportedly broke things in the house after the owner refused to return his $2,500 initial deposit.

The man was seen wielding a huge sledgehammer before donning sunglasses to protect his eyes from the flying objects.

Beginning in the bathroom, the man destroyed the wall of the shower with just two strokes of the hammer before smashing the mirror, the toilet and the door to the bathroom.

Throughout the ordeal, the man seemed to be laughing and enjoying his antics.

However, it may have been a foolish move for the long run because now the landlord has evidence as to who committed the vandalism.

If the landlord chooses to take the matter to court, it will end up costing the tenant much more than the $2,500 deposit.

Woman seen scratching $30,000 car to force husband to buy it for her

The woman scratching the hybrid car 
By: Moses Gold

(Scroll down for video) A woman came up with a cleaver way to force her husband to buy her a new car.

She deliberately scratched a brand new $32,000 car, which was on display, to try to force her husband to buy it for her.

The couple attended the China's Guangzhou Auto Show, when the woman decided she wanted the hybrid car that was on display.

An onlooker at the auto show recorded the argument between the husband and the wife over the car.

The woman was seen standing near the hood of the car with what seemed to be keys in her hands.

The woman scratched the car before her husband pulled her away from it
in an attempt to stop her from further damaging the car.

All this happened while the woman was making her case as to why she deserves the brand new car.

She managed to pull away from his grip and scratched the hood for a second time.

The woman was reportedly jealous that her husband looks younger than her age.

During the argument, the woman was heard screaming that she was "getting old" and that her husband still looks young.

She also said that she deserved the car because she had given him everything in the marriage.

It is not like the husband was able to purchase that car for his wife and let her drive off with it. The car was not actually for sale, it was just on display for pre orders.

There is no word yet if the couple will have to pay for the damages done to the hood of the car, but this video got the car company a lot of publicity.

(Scroll down for video) A new cool technology by British Airways, allows you to know what plane is flying above your head.

The first billboard of this kind was placed in Piccadilly Circus in London, United Kingdom.

The interesting high-tech new billboard advertising campaign by British Airways, which uses surveillance technology, shows a child looking up and pointing to a real airplane in the sky as it flies by.

He walks along, and follows the plane with his finger, before the flight number and destination appear on the billboard.

The message reads: "Look, it's BA475 flight from Barcelona."

The guessing game is over, now you can actually find out where those planes are heading to.

"We always hear people on the ground wondering where the planes are heading to,” Abigail Comber, British Airways’ head of marketing, said.

This clever technology allows people to get the answer on the spot.

"We hope this will create a real 'wow' so that people will remember how amazing flying is and how accessible the world can be,” she said.

By: Ryan Lee Hall

The father of two, had a lot of explaining to do after his $5,400 necklace went missing.

The man, who was identified as Cosmos, was forced to call police to report the theft.

He told police that he believed the thief was Tessy Emorvon, a prostitute, with whom he had slept with.

He explained that he had the gold necklace when he entered the hotel room to meet the woman, but when he woke up it was gone.

Although Emorvon, 26, of Lagos, Nigeria, admitted to working as a prostitute, she denied having anything to do with the stolen gold chain.

Emorvon was arrested and was held in jail pending an investigation by the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS).

After spending several days in a detention center, the woman was fed up with the interrogation and changed her story.

She confessed to police that she did take the necklace.

When police demanded to know where the necklace was hidden, to their surprise, the woman started undressing.

She suddenly reached into her privates and produced the necklace.

Cosmos now believes that the woman drugged him before she stole the necklace.

“The suspect confessed to the crime and pulled the necklace out of her privates. An investigation in the matter is still ongoing,” Lagos State Police spokesperson Ngozi Briade said.

(Scroll down for video) A young woman underwent an extreme procedure in order to be able to wear sexy shoes.

Mariah Serrano, 21, of New York, was born with clubfoot making it impossible for her to wear high heel shoes.

Serrano desperately wanted to work as a model, but with her crooked feet she knew she would never reach her dreams.

She decided to amputate her leg and replace it with a prosthetic leg in order to be able to wear high heels.

Before going through with the extreme measure, Serrano tried wearing a leg brace and underwent 5 surgeries to correct her foot.

When she was 16-years-old, doctors told her that she would never be able to walk in stilettos, even after therapy.

While other girls at her prom danced in high heels, the then 17-year-old Serrano had to wear a pair of golden sneakers under her formal attire.

Serrano is happy with her decision and now works in the fashion industry.

She is now the proud owner of 10 pairs of fashionable high heel shoes.

(Scroll down for video) Do you hate doing laundry? Now, your dog can do it for you.

A new washing machine can be controlled by dogs so they can help out with laundry.

The “Woof To Wash” machine was designed so dogs can use it.

The door has a rope knotted handle so the dog can pull it open with its mouth.

A paw print button is placed low on the machine so that the dog can press it easily.

It also has a voice-activated switch, so a cycle begins when the dog barks.

JTM Service, an appliance company in the United Kingdom, created the ​​machine.

They have created the machine to help people with disabilities live more independent lives.

"We developed this machine because mainstream manufacturers rarely develop products to meet the needs of users with disabilities,” John Middleton, CEO of JTM, said.

"I ​​think it's amazing. I mean this is the first washing machine in the world where a barking dog can actually start the washer," Rita Howson, spokesperson for Support Dogs, said.

(Scroll down for video) A man who was seen on video throwing away his money in public, said that he just wanted to cheer up other people.

The Minnesota man sent 1,000 $1 bills flying inside the Mall of America, to spread some holiday cheer, but he ended up receiving a fine from police.

Serge Vorobyov, 29, of Apple Valley said he had a "very tough year," so he decided to make it snow money with his last $1,000 in order to spread a little holiday cheer on Friday afternoon.

Vorobyov dropped the cash over a railing on the third floor into the crowd below, as people were listening to the song “Let It Snow.”

The shoppers loved it, but the city police did not care about it, and he was issued a ticket for disorderly conduct. Police said that the man threw away his cash in order to win back his girlfriend.

"I do not see how holiday cheer is disorderly conduct," he said.

Mall of America spokesperson Sarah Schmidt said it is the first time that someone has done something like this at the mall, but added that it was harmful and could have caused a serious situation.

A prisoner couldn’t take the pain anymore so he busted out of jail and headed straight for the dentist, according to court proceedings in Sweden.

Most prisoners escape because of the harsh conditions they face inside, but this man just wanted to fix his tooth.

The prisoner decided enough was enough after his inflamed tooth began to cause him a serious amount of pain and his face became swollen, so he staged an escape to visit a dentist.

The 51-year-old, who had just one month left to complete his sentence, decided to leave the Ostergard minimum security prison in Vanersborg, and headed for his nearest medical professional.

“My whole face was swollen. I could not take it anymore," the man said when asked why he escaped from prison.

Once the prisoner had the affected tooth fixed, he voluntarily returned to prison.

The man was charged and was sentenced to an additional day in prison.

In retrospect, it was probably worth it.

(Scroll down for video) A police officer was forced to resign after being caught having sex during an undercover drug operation, according to police reports in Arizona.

The police officer had an affair with the drug dealer, who she was investigating, and blew the cover of the investigation while she lay in bed with him.

Tempe Police Detective Jessica Dever-Jakusz, 38, met her lover in June 2013, following an undercover purchase of narcotics, and in August, she was having sex with him at his home on an ongoing basis.

On October 10, after having sex, Dever-Jakusz, who is married to a police officer, revealed that she was working undercover to arrest him.

Police detained the drug dealer for questioning, and he admitted to having a sexual relationship with the undercover detective, Dever-Jakusz. Dever-Jakusz is a 13 year veteran of the police force.

The drug dealer revealed explicit text messages he exchanged with Dever-Jakusz, including one in which she was asking him for permission to come over to his house later that day.

The affair ruined the five month undercover investigation, which is nicknamed Molly.

The drug dealer told police that he was surprised when Dever-Jakusz told him she was a police officer actively trying to send him to prison.

Tempe Police said that no charges will be filed against the suspect with whom Dever-Jakusz had the relationship with.
