Saudi Arabia has warned that it will sell up to $750 billion worth of U.S. assets held by the oil-rich Kingdom if the U.S. Congress passes a bill that would allow victims of the September 11, 2001, terror attack to sue the Saudi Arabia government.
Saudi foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir made a trip to Washington, D.C. last month to personally deliver the message to the American lawmakers, according to The New York Times.
In the message, al-Jubeir warned against passing of the bipartisan Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, or JASTA, which would amend the federal judicial code to include among the exceptions to U.S. jurisdictional immunity of foreign states any statutory or common law tort claim arising out of an act of extrajudicial killing, aircraft sabotage, hostage taking, terrorism, or the provision of material support or resources for such an act, or any claim for contribution or indemnity relating to a claim arising out of such an act. more >>
A Christian ministry is holding a continuous worship service 24 hours a day, seven days a week in the nation's capital to inspire a revival in the United States.

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump defended federal funding to Planned Parenthood during Saturday night's presidential debate in South Carolina and also did not back away from his past support of impeaching former President George W. Bush.
At times during the debate, the discussion led to very heated back-and-forth exchanges between candidates, most of which involved the billionaire real estate mogul who currently leads by wide margins in most South Carolina Republican nomination polls.
After Trump used former President Ronald Reagan to defend himself as "flexible" for changing his mind on certain issues like abortion and his views on Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz chimed in by suggesting that Trump has been too flexible on things that should be "core principles" for conservatives and pro-lifers. more >>
Following the shooting in San Bernadino, California, last week, 2015 has become the deadliest year for jihad-inspired terror attacks on American soil since 2001, according to a Washington-based think tank.
The New America Foundation, a non-partisan think tank that focuses on a wide range of public policy issues, has compiled a set of data outlining various massacres that have occurred inside the United States since the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2011, that killed nearly 3,000 people.
The list, which was released after last Wednesday's jihad-inspired mass shooting in San Bernardino, finds that 19 people have been killed by radical Islamic extremists in the U.S. this year alone, making 2015 the most violent year for Islamic extremism in America since 2001. more >>
Donald Trump has continued to stand behind his claim that American Muslims in New Jersey celebrated the 9/11 terror attacks on New York, despite widespread media criticism, and denial by both police and Jersey City's mayor.
Trump has claimed that there are "thousands and thousands" of people who cheered in Jersey City as the World Trade Center buildings went down, despite Mayor Seteven Fulop stating that "no one in Jersey City cheered on Sept. 11. We were actually among the first to provide responders to help in lower Manhattan.
On Thursday, Trump linked on his Facebook page to an article that was posted on InfoWars, a website by controversial conservative radio show host Alex Jones, where a Jersey resident claims that the GOP Presidential candidate is "telling the truth." more >>
Atheist professor and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins has said that Christians who do good only to avoid Hell or to receive the award of Heaven are "self-centered."
"If you're good because you want to carry favor with God, if you're good because you want to avoid going to Hell, or if you want to go to Heaven, that's a rather ignoble, self-centered reason to be good," Dawkins said during an interview with Ireland's RTÉ One on Sunday.
"I fully accept that an awful lot of good deeds are done by people who happen to be religious, but I think it's rather insulting to suggest that you need religion in order to be good." more >>
