From Jerusalem, Netanyahu offers Christians personal tours of Israel

From Jerusalem, Netanyahu offers Christians personal tours of IsraelIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered to play tour guide to Christian pilgrims on Sunday in a message relayed from Jerusalem, whose recognition as Israel’s capital by U.S. President Donald Trump has split global Christian opinion. A Christmas Eve video on Twitter showed Netanyahu against the backdrop of East Jerusalem, an area laden with Jewish, Christian and Muslim shrines that Israel captured in a 1967 war and which Palestinians want as their own future capital. In the message, titled “Merry Christmas from Jerusalem, the capital of Israel!” he described Israel as a haven for its 2 percent Christian minority because, he said, “We protect the rights of everyone to worship in the holy sites behind me.” Netanyahu named several Christian pilgrimage sites in Israel – including the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in East Jerusalem’s Old City – which would take visitors “in the footsteps of Jesus and the origin of our Judeo-Christian heritage.” “For those of you who come to Israel, I’m going to take a guided tour.

Las Vegas concert-goers claim personal items left after massacre

Las Vegas concert-goers claim personal items left after massacreBy Sharon Bernstein LAS VEGAS (Reuters) – The FBI on Sunday started returning thousands of purses, phones and other property left behind by concert-goers in Las Vegas fleeing the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, as the Red Cross stepped up efforts to reach those traumatized by the Oct. 1 massacre. Investigators still lack a clear reason why Stephen Paddock, 64, unleashed a torrent of gunfire into a crowd of 22,000 at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival. The suspect shot himself to death before police stormed his 32nd-floor suite in the Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort, high above the concert venue.

Personal electronics banned on flights to the US from 13 countries

Personal electronics banned on flights to the US from 13 countriesAll personal electronics, apart from cellphones, have been banned on flights to the US from 13 countries. Royal Jordanian Airlines, the national airline of Jordan, confirmed the news in an advisory posting on Twitter today. TSA confirmed Royal Jordanian's initial statement, but referred any further comment to the Department of Homeland Security. DHS would not comment, provide details or reasons when asked for comment by BGR.

The only further details on the ban have been provided by a Saudi executive, who indicated in a reply on Twitter that the ban was at the request of US authorities, and applied to flights originating in 13 countries. Those countries are not yet known.

Until the DHS chooses to comment, we won't know what triggered the ban. However, it's easy to imagine that it is the result of a terrorism alert. That would explain why cellphones, which have small batteries and little capability to be turned into a bomb, would still be allowed.

The recent Galaxy Note 7 debacle has thrown into sharp relief how dangerous lithium-ion batteries can be when they accidentally explode. Given the energy capacity in a much larger laptop or tablet battery, it would be theoretically possible to turn into an explosive device. Alternatively, it could be a security measure focused at different objectives; until the TSA or DHS chooses to comment, we won't know for sure.
