A Jewish organization requested the French authorities in a small village outside Paris, to change its name which translates into English as "Death to Jews."

"The fact that the name was unnoticed for seventy years after the liberation of France from the Nazis and Vichy, is surprising," Shimon Samuels of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, wrote to the Interior Minister of France.

The deputy mayor of a town named “Death To Jews” said he will not change the name because people need to respect tradition.

"It's ridiculous. This name has always existed," Marie-Elizabeth Secretand said.

"Nobody has anything against the Jews, of course. I'm not surprised that this issue is coming up again. Why change a name that dates back to the Middle Ages or even earlier? We must respect these old names," she added.

Secretand also noted that the city council was asked to change the name of the city, consisting of two houses and a farm 20 years ago, but that request was denied.

ISIS fighters active in Gaza and help Hamas in their fight against Israel

During Operation Protective Edge, ISIS fighters were spotted in Gaza, the Tazpit News Agency reported.

According to a recent Gatestone Institute publication, the presence of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), began to grow in the Gaza Strip, with both the Palestinian Authority and Israel, convinced that followers of ISIS in Gaza have been responsible for some of the rocket attacks on Israel.

Last month, the Israel Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, reported that Salafist-jihadi operatives in the Gaza Strip, uploaded a video clip to YouTube, documenting several instances of rockets being launched at Israel.

The video clip, entitled “The Salafist-jihadi [movement] in the Gaza Strip – lovers of the Islamic state [i.e. ISIS] launches rockets at the Jews.” The video showed at least 10 rockets being launched at Israel.

In addition, the Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm reported in late June, that Egyptian security forces arrested 15 ISIS terrorists (known as ‘Daash’ in Arabic), who tried to infiltrate Sinai from the Gaza Strip.

According to the report, the 15 who were arrested, were instructed to begin the formation of an ISIS branch in Egypt among terrorist groups in the Sinai.

However, the Hamas Interior Ministry refuted the report, with Ma'an News Agency reporting that the ministry stated it was a lie and that “all tunnels between Gaza and Egypt have been closed completely after the Egyptian army destroyed them.” Iyad Al Bezem, a Hamas interior spokesman, stated that “there is no presence of ISIS in the Gaza Strip.”

Gatestone reports that ISIS followers organized a rally on June 12, to celebrate the military victories of ISIS in Iraq, but Hamas police dispersed the Rafah rally. In addition, Hamas prevented local journalists from reporting the event “as part of its attempt to deny the existence of ISIS in the Gaza Strip.”

At the rally, dozens of Islamists were reported chanting, “Khaybar, Khaybar, Ya Yahud, Jaish Mohamed Saya’ud!” (O Jews, Mohamed's army will return) in reference to the story of the 629 CE battle by the Prophet Mohamed against the Jews of Khaybar in northwestern Arabia, where many Jews were killed and Jewish women and children taken as slaves.

Additionally, at a funeral for two terrorists who were killed for firing rockets at Israeli communities, on Sunday, June 29, the black ISIS flags were seen flying, and the terrorists’ coffins were reportedly draped in ISIS flags, according to a World Net Daily report.

The radical jihadi ISIS, which recently changed its name to The Islamic State, proclaimed itself an Islamic caliphate on June 29, claiming religious authority over all Muslims in the world, and having ushered in “a new era of international jihad.”

The group has exterminated at least 500 people of Iraq’s Yazidi Kurdish ethnic minority, while burying some of its victims alive. Some 300 Yazidi women were kidnapped as slaves and around 150,000 Yazidi Kurds, who have been entrapped by ISIS on Iraq’s Sinjar mountains, are currently homeless and starving.

A woman was fired from her job as a hospital nurse after faking her husband’s HIV test.

A nurse at the hospital in Gokwe, Zimbabwe, was fired, and her coworker was suspended pending the outcome of an investigation after the two deliberately issued false HIV results.

The man then used the results to try to entice his lover, who is married, to have unprotected sex with him.

The incident happened about three weeks ago, when Angela Chipere, and her coworker Shamiso Punzwana, hatched the plan to help Mr. Punzwana prove that he is HIV negative despite being HIV positive.

It is alleged that Shamiso's husband had an affair with a married woman and had protected sex. However, when Mr. Punzwana wanted to have unprotected sex, his lover demanded him to be tested for HIV.

Knowing that he is HIV positive, Mr. Punzwana, who is unemployed, told his wife that he had been offered a job by an organization and the work was available only to those who have tested negative for HIV.

It is alleged that nurse Shamiso, approached the head of her department Mr. Chipere, and bribed her to facilitate false HIV results.

After getting the negative results, the man took a photo of the results and forwarded them to his mistress via WhatsApp.

However, all hell broke loose when the husband of the mistress found the WhatsApp message. The man went to the home of Mr. Punzwana and confronted him about it.

It was during the argument that his wife learned the true reason he needed the test, and she confessed to falsifying the test results.

Midlands Provincial Medical Director Dr. Milton Chemhuru, confirmed that they are conducting an investigation and charges may be brought against the women.

An ungrateful mother is suing a police officer, who stopped a little girl from killing herself with a knife, according to a lawsuit filed in South Dakota.

Police warned the 8-year-old girl that they would Taser her, and within seconds, one officer fired at her chest, according to the lawsuit filed by Dawn Stenstrom, the mother of the girl.

The force of electricity shot through her body, and threw her against a wall. Later, the officers removed the darts from her chest and gave the girl emergency medical attention.

The reason that the police were in the house was to keep the girl from hurting herself. The girl’s nanny had called them because she had a knife in her hand.

The girl's mother claims that police used excessive force when they used the Taser on her girl. However, the police department disagrees, saying that the police could have possibly saved the life of this girl.

After a two-month independent investigation, the Criminal Investigation Division of South Dakota, ruled that the officer had acted correctly.

The mother is seeking at least $100,000 in damages, plus punitive damages and other relief that the court will consider to be fair and equitable.
