Israel: Sends Rocket to the Moon

(Jerusalem)  Israel is hoping to become the 4th Nation to send a spacecraft to the moon with the launching of the Beresheet robotic lunar lander. But what makes this mission different from all the rest is:

  • It is privately funded as opposed to state funded
  • It has piggybacked onto another launch in which to get into Space
SpaceIL the company behind this endeavour is an Israeli organization, established in 2011, in which to compete in the Google Lunar X Prize (GLXP) which was a competition to see a privately funded spacecraft land on the Moon. After the contest declared no winner, SpaceIL decided to continue with the project resulting in them paying Space X to allow them to piggyback the finished Beresheet lander onto one of its flights into Space.

Once Beresheet is in Earth orbit and separated from the Falcon 9 launcher, it will undergo several orbits around Earth, taking around 2.5 months before it reaches the Moon's area of influence. Once there,it will attempt to be captured by the Moons gravity placing it into a lunar orbit where upon  it will decelerate until for a landing on the lunar surface.

If all goes according to plan, the 5-foot-tall (1.5 meters) Beresheet — whose name means "in the beginning" in Hebrew — will land on the moon on April 11. Onboard will be an Israeli flag, a time capsule, which includes a "Lunar Library." -The library is a project of the nonprofit Arch Mission Foundation, which seeks to archive human knowledge for millions or billions of years. The Lunar Library will carry, among other things, the entirety of the English-language version of Wikipedia and keys to 5,000 languages, -The lander will study craters and the local magnetic field (unlike Earth, the moon doesn't have a global magnetic field) during its lunar approach and two-Earth-day surface mission. But the main goal is to inspire young people around the world, especially those in Israel.

US: The Boy who cried Trump

(Chicago)  A picture says a thousand words:

Venezuela: Closes border with Brazil to stop aid getting through

(Caracas) As Venezuela continues to fail economically, International Aid has started to pile up in warehouses in countries that border it, in which to help the people. The problem is, Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro and his cronies understand only too well that if he lets in the Aid, he is publicly admitting that his socialist derived economic policies have failed and that would lead to increased calls for his resignation.  Which is why for the past few weeks he’s been playing the ‘The US wants to invade us’ in which to rally the plebs into supporting him. Problem is people aren't buying this anymore and the opposition inside the country is growing bigger, in fact so much bigger, he has replaced his Venezuelan  bodyguards for Russians due to trust issues. Well as pressure mounts for him to allow in the Aid, today he gave his answer.

He has ordered closing  the border with Brazil effected Thursday evening in which to prevent the importation humanitarian aid he also said on stated on his television broadcast  he's also considering a closure of Venezuela's border with Colombia. Gee isn’t socialism great.

US: Women who left to join ISIS and wants to return informed: "The computer says..NO."

(Washington)  So in 2014 , 20 year old Hoda Muthana packed her bags and buggered off to Syria in which to join ISIS and live in a pure Islamic state.

There she married a ISIS terrorist and when he was killed, she married another, and when he was killed she married another. In between laying on the slab and saying 'fillet' She took to social media in which to get Muslims living in the US to carry out acts of terrorism agaisnt American citizens:
“Americans wake up! Men and women altogether. You have much to do while you live under our greatest enemy, enough of your sleeping! Go on drivebys, and spill all of their blood, or rent a big truck and drive all over them. Veterans, Patriots, Memorial, etc day … Kill them.”
Her twitter feed was full of bloodcurdling incitement,  she now says her account was taken over by others. Oh Ok, I'll believe you, but I know millions won't With the worlds fightback against ISIS she 
retreated deeper into Isis’s ever-shrinking land and so six weeks ago, she fled the village of Susa, not far from the current frontline in Baghuz. where she  was captured by Kurdish forces who transferred her to al-Hawl, where she now mingles with wives and widows of fighters from around the world.
As we have seen with other ISIS brides the liberals , do-gooders and certain Islamic orgs (looks at CAIR) have begged in the name of humanity for her to be allowed to rejoin her Yemeni family in Alabama. Why her lawyer  has even called for her to be a voice of a deradicalisation programme that dissuades others from joining the terror group and counters online manipulation...really?

Problem for her is, the US government has just said No
Isn't Karma a right bitch. Expect the usual suspects to have a melt down.

UK: Hussein Brothers jailed for carrying out a machete attack inside a supermarket

(Bristol) Last August 31st 36 year old Naveed Hussain whilst out shopping got into a tussle with 44-year-old Zebeullam Mayakhial and came off second best. Unable to take this loss of face, he phoned his younger brother to help him regain his honour.

So picking up a machete on his way out of the door, 34 year old  Razwan Hussain, travelled over to the Tesco supermarket in Eastville with bloody revenge in mind. On his arrival he quickly paired up with his brother and like a pack of rabid dogs (Pakistani ones at that) chased down their victims inside the supermarket , attacking the 21 year old inside the foyer and then with a single blow of the machete, Razwan came close to severing Mayakhial arm. Then the pair of these thugs made a hasty getaway. Customers inside the store who witnessed the attack believed that they were in the midst of a terrorist incident and fled for their lives.

Police quickly identified the brothers and a citywide alert was put in action by armed police. Razwan was arrested a week later after being found by officers hiding at a relative’s home, while Naveed handed himself in after five days. In court their brief related how the brothers were family men who had been victims of violence in the past. Unfortunately for these two violent thugs, the judge was having none of the ‘I am a victim’ card and  sent both down. Razwan Hussain received a 10 and a half year sentence and his older brother Naveed was given a 2 year stretch.
