St. Petersburg, Russia: A homemade bomb killed at least 11 people on a subway train and left more than 50 injured.

Martin Mawyer, president of the Christian Action Network said that the US Department of Education is funding lesson plans distributed by PBS (the Public Broadcasting System) on behalf of the Islamic faith.

An international investigation led to the arrest of a 19-year old with dual US-Israeli citizenship in Israel for making bomb threats over the phone to Jewish facilities in the US, using masking technology to hide his tracks. His lawyer says the young man suffers from a “very serious” medical condition that may have affected his behavior.
Rap artist ‘Snoop Dogg’ produced a music video that depicted the mock execution of President Trump, who was characterized as a clown. Trump says there would have been a massive outcry and jail time if Obama had been the subject of the video. Snoop Dogg’s nephew, Shad ‘Bow Wow’ Moss, responded by calling for pimping out the First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump.
Hollywood’s propaganda department gave an Academy Award to The White Helmets for best documentary short feature, when it would have been more appropriate to classify it as fiction. The White Helmets film praises the Syrian rescue group as heroes, but they are actually a terrorist support group affiliated with al-Nusra, and funded by at least $100 million from USAID, the British Foreign Office, other EU states and Qatar for covert operations.
Quebec, Canada: A 27-year old man, Alexandre Bissonnette, was arrested on charges of shooting and killing six Muslim men who were praying in a mosque. This mass shooting has many features that are identical to other similar shootings. For example, the suspect is described as a right-wing extremist, he has ties to the military, witnesses say there were multiple shooters, law enforcement says there was only one shooter, a second man was arrested and set free, authorities have not released the CCTV videos, and reporting of the event is tied to a political agenda against Trump’s immigration program. Trudeau said Canada will welcome Muslims turned away by the US.
