Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin revealed on Monday that she is separating from her disgraced former politician husband Anthony Weiner after he was caught in yet another sexting scandal, prompting Donald Trump to criticize Clinton's "bad judgment" regarding her inner circle.
Huma Abedin, who served as Clinton's deputy chief of staff to the U.S. secretary of state from 2009 to 2013, and is now part of the Democratic nominee's presidential campaign, was said to be "furious and sickened" after new sexually suggestive photos appeared online of Weiner.
"After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband. Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy," Abedin announced in a statement, according to CNN. more >>
Muslims and Arabs who openly identify as Zionists are growing in number — powered by the freer flow of information and ideas made possible by social media and the search for answers in the wake of the Arab Spring and Islamist terror.
A new Facebook page for Arab supporters of Israel has attracted about 20,000 followers. The page, which shares content in English, Arabic, and Hebrew, was founded by a religious Jewish woman and an Arab man. It posts examples of Israel treating Arabs and Muslims with kindness and shares surprising Arab support for Israel from across the Middle East, including Tunisians who created an Israeli flag after being unable to buy one, and who have faced threats for their views.
Muhammad Zoabi entered the spotlight as a proud Arab, Muslim Zionist in the summer of 2014. Just 17 at the time, Zoabi began to advocate for Israel in English, Arabic, and Hebrew. He posted a video demanding that Hamas release three Israeli teens who had been kidnapped a few weeks before Operation Protective Edge. Death threats soon forced Zoabi into hiding, and he found shelter with Kay Wilson, who had survived a brutal 2010 terrorist stabbing attack. more >>

In a nation where women and children are sold for sexual exploitation, one mother and her family have become agents of change — living out a message of unconditional love.
"The quest for love is really driving this degrading market," says Christine Anasco, who has served for 12 years in international missions work with her husband David and their four children. "Our aim is to show these women they are valued."
Since moving to Thailand in 2014, the Anascos have come to know firsthand the faces of human trafficking. Every year, innocent people are trafficked worldwide by the tens of millions; the U.S. State Department includes Thailand on its Tier 2 watch list, one of many nations not fully complying with anti-trafficking policies though making progress. more >>
On two separate occasion this week, influential evangelicals Dr. Ben Carson, Kirk Cameron and entertainer Carman answered questions about the advantages and disadvantages of marijuana.
First, during a Facebook live interactive event on Tuesday, Carson, a former Republican presidential candidate, teamed up with Cameron to discuss why it's important for evangelical Christians to vote, especially in the upcoming presidential election on Nov. 8. During the Q&A with callers, the men were asked about their views on the use of marijuana, and the push to make the drug legal in all 50 states.
Tweleve minutes into the Q&A, a man phoned in and asked for advice on how Christians should react to marijuana advocates pushing for its legalization, such as in his home state of Arkansas. more >>
