Middle East Issues
Salaams. I found an interesting article on the Yemen situation that I think everyone should read.

So it would seem that there is evidence that the co-pilot intended to crash the plane. Not thought to be terrorism at this stage and too soon to declare it a suicide. Not sure why it's too soon to declare that TBH, he did it on purpose so they claim, so what else if not...

The Israeli electorate had a choice to make. By re-electing a leader who publicly reneged on his commitments to peace and a two-state solution, they voted against peace.
