On Monday morning, as I roused from a restful sleep, I learned that Donald Trump spent Sunday night trying to start a war on Twitter:
The Syrian Civil War was roughly a year old by the time Dalya Zeno and her mother, Rudayna Aksh, fled Aleppo for Los Angeles in 2012. Arriving in Southern California as American citizens, Dalya and Rudayna struggled to adjust to life after Syria in a nation that, they believed, could be unwelcoming toward Muslims.
This weekend, North Korea successfully tested a medium long-range strategic missile, a weapon their official Korean Central News Agency says can carry a nuclear warhead.
In an interview that aired Wednesday morning, Donald Trump told Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo in exquisitely vague detail all about how he told Chinese President Xi Jinping how he had launched missiles at the wrong country.
North Korea has threatened “catastrophic consequences” against the US, including a nuclear strike, as tensions continue to escalate at the North Korean border.
Shortly after “alt-right” poster boy Steve Bannon reportedly called Jared Kushner a “cuck,” signaling an escalating battle in the White House between the “Bannonites” and the “globalists,” Donald Trump bucked his isolationist promises and launched a military strike against the Syrian government. The barf-splatter of…
On Thursday, the U.S. military launched 50 cruise missiles at a Syrian military airfield in retaliation for a devastating chemical attack by President Bashar al-Assad that killed at least 80 people, marking the first direct military action the United States has taken in Syria since the start of the country’s civil war.
As Donald Trump met with Kanye West today in Trump Tower, Syrian regime forces bolstered by our new friends in the Kremlin are completing what a UN official called “the complete meltdown of humanity” in the nearly fallen rebel-held city of Aleppo.
The rebel stronghold in east Aleppo is foundering as the Syrian Army advances, executing civilians and spraying the city with gunfire and shells.
Since late September, Bana Alabed, a seven-year-old girl from war-ravaged Aleppo, has narrated her experiences on Twitter. The account, begun by her mother, accumulated over 100,000 followers as Bana delivered stark and harrowing messages of life amidst brutal chaos. But as of today, the account has disappeared.
In the perfect coda to the rabid clusterfuck that was the 2016 Republican National Convention, armchair political correspondent and actress Kirstie Alley had very important things to say about Ivanka Trump: namely, that the daughter of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump is a champion of Generation Y. In short, it…
With hundreds of thousands of Syrian men killed in warfare, and an uncertain number fleeing conscription and economic hardship, Syrian women are maintaining cultural traditions in the ways that they still can.
Another day, another statement from the Pope to make right wing-types tear out their last, sparse remaining hairs: at a rally in Turin, Italy, the pope condemned weapons manufacturers, suggesting they can’t consider themselves Christians.
It's really hard to say when this all began.
More than 10,000 women have fought in the Kurdish-Islamic State conflict in Syria. These mourners carry the body of 20-year-old Hanim Dabaan, killed in combat with Islamic State militants in the Turkey-Syria border town of Kobani, which has been under attack by ISIS for the last two months.
In a talk with Ronan Farrow, living inspiration and recent Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai discussed the many encounters she's had with world leaders, including President Barack Obama. "It's very important to reach those people and [tell] them that it is their responsibility to contribute to education and…
People with an internet connection and a digital camera are doing their part to end the age old conflict between Israel and Palestine by posting selfies alongside plates of hummus. Why didn't we think of this sooner?
This week, members of the extreme al Qaeda splinter group ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams) took control of Mosul, Iraq's second largest city. And they wasted no time instituting Sharia law that requires women to stay inside and cover themselves from head to toe.
