The symbols were spray painted on a path in the Old City of Jerusalem on the eve of Israel’s Independence Day.

The Stars of David are meant to be degraded by the stomping of passersby. Posters in honor of the terrorist Amjad A-Safdi were posted near the graffiti. A-Safdi, an Arab Israeli lawyer who was arrested a few weeks ago by the GSS and police on suspicion of aiding the Hamas terrorist organization, was released to house arrest. He committed suicide last week.

The popular Boy London fashion brand is being criticized because their symbol resembles the Nazi eagle.

Angry consumers are demanding a boycott after the national symbol of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich appeared on the clothes.

Celebrities including singers Jessie J, Rihanna, and Cara Delevingne, have been spotted wearing the Boy London brand in the past. The brand logo is an eagle with outstretched wings perched on a podium at the top of the letter O of the word Boy, which is written below.

Outraged customers have called the company to take immediate action. The image was used as an emblem by the party of Hitler.

The eagle in the Nazi symbol is facing the same way as the Boy London logo, but it bears a swastika, instead of the letter O. Fenwick, a popular department store, has withdrawn the Boy London brand until the company removes the logo.

Despite the controversy , Boy London has refused to accept any comparison between their brand logo and the symbol of the Third Reich. “The brand is in no way related to Nazism or their idea,” a Boy London spokesperson said.

He explained that the logo was inspired by the eagle of the Roman Empire as a sign of decadence and strength. Its aim is to empower people.

Jews were shocked to learn that vandals spray painted a swastika on the grave site of a Talmudic sage.

Israel Police said that the tomb of the second century rabbi, Abba Halafta, which is located in the northern part of the country, was vandalized with swastikas on Tuesday.

Police believe that the incident was in retaliation for the recent hate crimes against Muslim places of worship. The words “Price Tag for the Price Tag,” were also found at the site.

In response to the recent wave of hate attacks, Israel Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said that Israel must fight hate crimes against Muslims with an iron fist.

“There is much work ahead of us. We must strive to be a state that fights racism, violence and xenophobia,” Yaalon said. “Price Tag is an ugly phenomenon that has no connection to Jewish values and morals, and whose objective is harming Muslims just because they are Muslims,” Yaalon added.

Also in response to the recent wave of attacks, a group of young Muslims partnered with their Jewish colleagues to rebuild an ancient synagogue in a city of the Galilee.

UPS scrambled to make things right after accidentally delivering a military drone to a private citizen.

UPS said that it has taken possession of the government drone mistakenly delivered to an unsuspecting user of Reddit.

A spokesperson for UPS said that the company is still investigating how the $400,000 package ended up at that address. The package contained parts of a drone called Puma, owned and sent by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The bizarre incident began on Monday, when Reddit user Seventy_Seven published a series of pictures asking “Did I just get a drone in the mail?”

Seventy_Seven received a box that he ordered, but UPS also delivered a second mystery box containing wings and a control panel, along with a card marking the content as “U.S. Federal Property” that must be returned to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The Puma is a flying camera designed for aerial observation. UPS delivers about 17 million packages each day. Seventy_Seven said that he contacted UPS, but a representative insisted that the box belonged to him.

However, after uploading photos of the delivery to Reddit, UPS decided to pick up the package. Seventy_Seven said that he was happy to rid his home from the government drone.

By: Anika Rao

A man asked a judge to force a city to allow him to legally marry his porn filled laptop computer.

Chris Sevier, 37, a U.S. Army veteran and former lawyer of Utah, claimed that he fell in love with his Apple MacBook.

On court documents, he wrote the he “prefers having sex with the computer over all other persons or things.”

In his 50-page motion, Sevier explained that he attempted to get a marriage license to marry his computer, but was discriminated against when the clerk rejected his request.

Sevier also wrote that if gay couples “have the right to marry their object of sexual desire, even if they lack the corresponding sexual parts, then he should have the right to marry his preferred sexual object.”

However, a judge denied his request and he has suspended his bid to marry his porn filled laptop.

Sevier has been suspended from practicing law on grounds of disability and mental health issues.

Sevier made headlines last year, when he sued Apple. In court documents, he claimed that Apple ruined his marriage after he accidentally typed F***book instead of Facebook in the company's web browser, and the company’s search results showed pornographic images.

He then claimed that the innocent spelling mistake resulted in him viewing a pornographic image that “appealed to his biological sensibilities as a male and led to an unwanted addiction,” which then “poisoned his life” and ruined his marriage.

“Over time, I Began preferring sex with my computer over sex with real women,” Sevier wrote in the court filings.

(Scroll down for video) A man is angry that his cousin is using his picture in her campaign against child rape.

The man who allegedly admitted and apologized to the victim’s mother for molesting his cousin beginning when she was 13 years old, is now suing her for defamation and stalking.

James Rashawn Johnson is petitioning for a civil injunction to stop his cousin, Ashley Foster, from using his name or photographs when she tells her story of how she was molested.

Foster of Florida, who is now 23 years old, claims that Johnson molested her for six years until she was 19. Foster said that she did not come forward earlier for fear of her family's reaction.

However, he was never prosecuted because when she reported him two years ago, too much time had passed since the alleged offense. Foster was devastated when she was informed that the statute of limitations had run out just 60 days before she filed her complaint.

Refusing to back down, Foster launched an online campaign to eliminate Florida's statute of limitations in cases like hers. She is using her cousin’s name and pictures for her campaign.

Johnson wants his cousin to stop identifying him as he has never been charged.

“My picture appeared on Facebook as a predator even though I have never been arrested, prosecuted, or convicted of a crime,” Johnson I wrote in documents filed in the Broward County court.

Foster said that she refuses to be silenced and would only stop using Johnson's image and name if ordered by a court. “I feel re-victimized now, I have a First Amendment right to tell my story, and he made ​​my story,” the woman said.
