london synA drunken mob of more than 20 thugs shouted “kill the Jews” as they stormed into a north London synagogue while young worshippers celebrated the end of the sabbath.

The anti-Semitic abuse was hurled by the group of men and women as they first beat up a young man outside before chasing him inside, breaking windows and attacking others.

Part of the chaotic incident in Stamford Hill was captured on video before the intruders were beaten back as the worshippers grabbed chairs to protect themselves.

Scotland Yard said six people – four men and two women – were later arrested on suspicion of public order offences and assault. Read more.

CUFI Action Alert Encouraging Senators to Support Congressional Review of Iran Deal Generates More Than 57,000 Emails in 24 Hours

On Tuesday, Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, sent an action alert encouraging senators to support the Corker-Menendez Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act (S. 615).

The emails to senators noted in part “Things are moving quickly. The Administration may reach a framework agreement with Iran by the end of this month. You must act now to ensure that any final deal is subject to your final approval.”

“It is unconscionable that the President would consider signing a deal of this import without Congressional approval. Congress is the voice of the people, and the massive response to this action alert makes clear that on Iran, the people want their voice heard,” said CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee.

“Every major arms control agreement in recent history has been submitted to Congress for approval.  A deal with Iran should be no different.  Both our national security and our Constitutional balance of powers are at stake here.  We expect our senators to stand up for both.” added CUFI executive director David Brog.
