Tim Walz this week. “North Minneapolis, the most diverse part of the state, is a war zone, with a child murdered, a man killed when a barbershop was shot-up in broad daylight, a school teacher executed by fully automatic gunfire, a drive by shooting across an elementary school playground with children at recess, a bus evacuated after being shot at.

As alliances shift in the Middle East, Christians and Israel are increasingly less portrayed as enemies
Many leaders in the Middle East once thought that Christians and Israel were their primary enemies, but there is a “tectonic shift” taking place in the region, according to ALL ARAB NEWS Editor-in-Chief Joel Rosenberg. And with these shifting alliances and emerging threats, the Arab world is reassessing who is an enemy and who is a foe. “Look, Christians have always been thought of in the region as the problem,” Rosenberg said in a recent interview. “This is not the case currently. People see Iran as the main enemy, rightly so.”
