Columbian orphan con-artist doubles as saudi prince.

“You mean the fake prince of Fisher Island?” the man told me. “To play the role he played so well for so long, he had to believe the lie. He actually believes he is Khalid, the prince of Saudi Arabia. I was sucked into absolute mayhem. He dangled such a carrot. Even though you knew he was full of shit, the carrot was so big, and there was a 2.2 percent chance that there was some truth in his asinine lies, that you kept going. He was so talented, and pulled off so much shit, I don’t even know where to begin.”

“I’ve been in the biz 25 years, but he was Top 10 over-the-top, flamboyant, all the bells and whistles,” says Don Pingaro, a local real-estate agent. “He had the royal name, the seal, the bodyguards, the jewelry, the entourage, the business manager. He was looking for the best of the best.”

"Boycott Israel"activist held for a week in a bed-bug infested holding tank by israelis. Those guys no better than IR.
Why she bother to go to Israel?

Alqasem is registered to study human rights at Israel's Hebrew University in Jerusalem. The university has thrown its support behind her, announcing on Monday it would join Alqasem's appeal.

She also received a boost from her former Hebrew professor at the University of Florida, who described her as an exceptional and curious student. In a letter to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Dror Abend-David said she had an "open and positive attitude toward Judaism, Jews, and the State of Israel."

after just one gulp, he quickly realized that he did not just drink water. According to Sun, he knew immediately that he just took a sip of urine.

DiDi explained that the driver was unable to find a restroom and resorted to peeing in a water bottle inside his vehicle. The driver then placed the bottle carelessly back into the drink holder.

That Khashoggi fellow was related to everyone !

Khashoggi comes from a very rich, powerful and well-known family in Saudi Arabia. He was born in Medina in 1958.His grandfather, Muhammad Khashoggi, who was from a family of Ottoman origin, married a Saudi woman and served as personal physician to King Abdulaziz Al Saud, the founder of the kingdom Saudi Arabia. Jamal Khashoggi is the nephew of late, high-profile Saudi arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, known for his part in the Iran-Contra scandal, estimated to have had a net worth of 4 billion dollars in the 1980s. Jamal Khashoggi’s cousin, Dodi Fayed, was dating Britain’s Princess Diana when the two were killed in a car crash in Paris.

He received his elementary and secondary education in Saudi Arabia and obtained a bachelor's degree in business administration from Indiana State University in the United States in 1982.

Khashoggi fled Saudi Arabia in September 2017,[5] and has since written newspaper articles critical of the Saudi government. Khashoggi is a high-profile critic of Saudi Arabia's powerful Crown Prince, Mohammad bin Salman and its King, Salman of Saudi Arabia.[2] He has also criticised the Saudi Arabian-led intervention in Yemen.[6] He is currently missing and allegations have been made that he was murdered and dismembered inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul,

Assad is now the first Arab leader to survive an attempt at regime change coordinated by the West, Gulf Arabs and Israel since Egyptian strongman Gamal Abdul Nasser emerged unscathed from the Suez debacle back in 1956.

Few noticed the most tangible outcome of Helsinki summit. In the lead-up to Trump's face-to-face talk with Vladimir Putin, senior US and Russian diplomats — in close coordination with leaders from mutual ally Israel — brokered a deal among all the warring parties (bar the Islamist terrorists) finally to end the devastating seven-year Syrian civil war.

Putin seems to have convinced Netanyahu that he would do everything in his power to see off the Iranians. . And what do the Iranians get in return? In what appears to be compensation for selling them out, Putin announced $50 billion in direct Russian investment in Iran’s oil and gas sectors — up from precisely nada the day before. Hezbollah can now retreat to southern Lebanon and Iran can even save face by saying its revolutionary guard has seen off Assad’s enemies.

And as for Assad? The man Trump was calling a ‘monster’ as recently as April? The President is now willing to look the other way. Trump’s adviser John Bolton said that Assad’s continued rule in Syria is no longer a ‘strategic issue’ for the US. As comebacks go, this is rather extraordinary. Assad has gone from being the focus of western ire —with the House of Commons even taking a vote on whether to bomb his army — to being there for good.

We had best get used to this American disinterest. Once, Washington policed the Middle East because it thought it would always depend on the region for its energy. Now America will soon be energy self-sufficient — and the expectation of this is visibly shaping its foreign policy. Last year the US produced 90 per cent of its domestic energy needs. So why should the US continue to spend blood and treasure keeping peace in the Middle East? Fracking means it can now finally leave, as long as the Saudis remain willing to help control oil prices.

The US gets out of the quagmire. The Gulf Arabs’ paranoia about Iranian expansionism is less acute. Israel gets rid of the threat on its border posed by Iran and Hezbollah. And even the latter can console themselves with the knowledge that their sacrifices prevented a genocide against their fellow shia.

Soc media going around hinting at cross of a sheep and pig and how Iran is importing it from China.

Best of my research shows a case of cross of hungarian & serbian pigs with no sheep DNA called Manglitsa /Mangalica.

While Americans are familiar with the common, mostly hairless, pink-skinned North American pigs, the mangalitsa is from the highlands of Austria and Hungary, where their sheep-like coat protects them from harsh European winters. The mangalitsa are not genetically engineered in any way, merely the product of millennia-old animal husbandry breeding practices.

The mangalitsa was bred from hardy Hungarian pigs (Bakonyi and Szalontai) crossed with the Šumadijas from Serbian. They have been around for more than a century,

Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm, which is streaming now on Amazon Prime according to Yahoo, includes interviews with Princess Diana's former butler, Paul Burrell, who spilled on some of the more peculiar requests coming from Charles.

Pampered Prince Charles may not sit on the throne yet, but he is being treated like a king;

"His pyjamas are pressed every morning, his shoelaces are pressed flat with an iron, the bath plug has to be in a certain position, and the water temperature has to be just tepid," Burrell explained. Charles also "has his valets squeeze one inch of toothpaste onto his toothbrush every morning."

"On one occasion, he rang me from his library and he said, 'Oh Paul, a letter from the Queen seems to have fallen into my wastepaper bin. Would you pick it out?'" Burrell adds.

Through a series of 120 personal interviews, Bowers explains that Charles not only changes his outfits five times a day, but he sends his own food ahead of his arrival at dinner parties, only uses his own toilet seats, and only sleeps on special royal sheets that are pressed and wrinkle-free — a process that can take over an hour per bed.
