King Herod's Tomb Found Herod the Great expanded the Second Jewish Temple and built the walls of the old city of Jerusalem. The Romans appointed him King of the Jews in 40 BC. The Christian Gospel of Matthew says that Herod ordered the Massacre of the Innocents, the killing of all children in Bethlehem under two, when he learned that Jesus had been born. Now archaeologist Ehud Netzer of Hebrew University claims he has found hundreds of pieces of what he believes to be Herod's sarcophagus --a major discovery. Professor Kathryn Gleason of Cornell University is Project Director of the Excavation of Herod's Promontory Palace at Caesarea on the coast of Israel.

Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11. But the President failed to provide what 27 other Alliance members have been waiting for: a re-commitment by America’s new leader to Article 5. Instead, they got a scolding.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
