Man says his wife who is 66 years old is more beautiful than the teen voted best looking on Earth

A man has said his 66-year-old wife is more beautiful than the 19-year-old Isreali teenager named the most beautiful woman in the world. Richard Freemantle commented on a report about Yael Shelbia being named the best-looking woman on the planet by saying she can't compare to his 66-year-old wife. While he agreed the Israeli model is “attractive”, he said his spouse Christine should have the top spot instead. The man, from Portsmouth, Hants, tweeted: “She is attractive but still not as beautiful as my wife. “She is 66, just getting her pension.” His comment went viral when it was shared on Facebook and Twitter, receiving thousands of likes and comments.

Israeli $1.5M Gold & Diamond Face-Mask Is The Most Expensive In The World

An Israeli jewelry company is working on what it says will be the world’s most expensive coronavirus mask, a gold, diamond-encrusted face covering with a price tag of $1.5 million. The 18-karat white gold mask will be decorated with 3,600 white and black diamonds and fitted with top-rated N99 filters at the request of the buyer, said designer Isaac Levy. Levy, owner of the Yvel company, said the buyer had two other demands: that it be completed by the end of the year, and that it would be the priciest in the world. That last condition, he said, “was the easiest to fulfill.” He declined to identify the buyer, but said he was a Chinese businessman living in the United States. The glitzed-up face mask may lend some pizzazz to the protective gear now mandatory in public spaces...

“Despite a ruling issued by the Federal High Court of Nigeria to release of Sheikh Zakzaky, the head of the Nigerian government has not done so yet,” Abdullah Danladi said in an interview with the Tasnim News Agency.

The activist further pointed to the health conditions of Sheikh Zakzaky and said he has already lost his left eye and his right eye was also damaged.

Hitler, Castro and Saddam Hussein meet in a bar. It may sound like the beginning of a joke, but in the Palestinian territories, it is actually possible. Palestinians often name their children after famous celebrities, national heroes or backers of their cause. But from time to time, they pick far more controversial names and the children have to live with the consequences. Hitler Abu Hamad is not proud to carry the name of a man responsible for the slaughter of millions. “There is no relationship between my name and the actions of Adolf Hitler,” he told AFP at his home in the city of Hebron in the occupied West Bank. “I hate what he did.” “I am against killing, violence and human rights abuses, but I got used to my name and it is part of my character.” How the quiet, poli...

Hamas Leader Ismail Haniyeh Says Deal Reached With Rival Fatah On Gaza

The leader of Hamas said on Thursday that his group has reached an agreement with the rival Fatah party of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas after Egyptian-brokered talks about the terms of control of the Gaza Strip. Ismail Haniyeh said in a statement that details would be announced later in the day in Cairo. The development follows two days of Hamas-Fatah talks in Cairo under what Haniyeh called “generous Egyptian auspices.” The talks marked the latest in a series of attempts to end a decade-long Palestinian territorial, political and ideological split that has crippled Palestinian statehood aspirations. In 2007, a year after winning Palestinian parliament elections, the Islamic militant Hamas evicted Abbas’ Western-backed Palestinian Authority from Gaza. Abbas was left with au...

Israel Strikes At Hamas Post After Attack

The Israeli military says it has struck a Hamas post in the southern Gaza Strip in response to an attack on an Israeli military vehicle. No one was wounded in Sunday's exchange. It marked a rare flare-up along the tense border that has remained largely quiet since a bloody 50-day war between Israel and Gaza militants in the northern summer of 2014. Israel typically responds to any fire toward it, holding Gaza's Hamas rulers responsible for all attacks emanating from the territory. Since the 2014 war a cease-fire has largely held. But militants in Gaza occasionally launch rockets toward Israel. Neither side appears interested in an escalation, though casualties could spark more violence.
