Three apparent terrorist attacks in USA. 'Officials said they could identify no definitive links between the disturbances — a bombing that hurt 29 in Chelsea, an explosion along the route of a scheduled race in Seaside Park, N.J., and a stabbing that wounded nine in a St. Cloud, Minn., mall.' Islamic State has claimed credit for the Minnesota mall attack, through a posting by the group's Amaq news service. The attacker, who was shot dead by an off-duty police officer, had had previous encounters with police. In New York, a second device was found near where the first exploded, and New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo labeled the attack terrorism. The New Jersey blast is being investigated for possible links to the NYC bombs.

Benjamin Netanyahu denounced the 'ethnic cleansing' of Jews from Judea and Samaria as part of a putative Palestinian state. 'Yet the Palestinian leadership actually demands a Palestinian state with one pre-condition: No Jews. There's a phrase for that: It's called ethnic cleansing. ...' Article and video at the link.

Arthur Chrenkoff retraces his grandfather's amazing journey from the Polish countryside to France to Scotland - and finally to Arnhem, the Netherlands, as a fighter in the ill-fated Operation Market Garden. Well worth the read.
