Kim Jong-Un Cries at Mother’s Conference Urging Communist Ideals and Population Growth (VIDEO)

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un broke down in tears during his address at the “national conference of mothers” this week, where he passionately urged women to embrace communist ideals and play a crucial role in reversing the country’s declining birth rate. This emotional plea stands out as a departure from the stoicism often associated with Kim and his forefathers, signaling a shift in leadership style.

Kim’s poignant remarks, published by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), underscored the regime’s heightened concern over the diminishing population and its potential impact on the stability of the impoverished authoritarian state. The two separate speeches delivered on Sunday and Tuesday highlighted the regime’s emphasis on mothers indoctrinating their children into communism, with Kim asserting that without mothers adopting communist values, it would be impossible to raise children as dedicated revolutionaries.

Kim’s call for mothers to fulfill their government requirement to “become communist” was coupled with an acknowledgment of the country’s declining birth rate, a topic rarely addressed by the secretive regime. The leader urged women to procreate more assertively, framing it as a patriotic duty and a contribution to the strengthening of the nation.

North Korea is grappling with one of the lowest fertility rates globally, hovering around 1.8 children per woman, well below the 2.1 required for “replacement fertility.” South Korean government officials suggest that Kim’s conference aimed at preventing a similar birth rate decline in North Korea, potentially by preventing ideological deviations among the younger generation and reinforcing the regime’s control through family education.

However, skepticism persists regarding the effectiveness of such measures, given the dire economic conditions in North Korea. Many families in the country struggle to meet basic needs, and concerns about raising children in the face of poverty contribute to the reluctance to have more than one child. Ahn Kyung-su, head of DPRKHEALTH.ORG, noted that economic factors, including the high cost of raising children, contribute significantly to the reluctance of North Korean families to have more than one child.

US Navy Warship and Commercial Vessels Attacked in Red Sea Amid Rising Tensions

A U.S. Navy warship, the USS Carney (DDG-64), and multiple commercial vessels faced an attack on Sunday in the Red Sea, marking a potential escalation in maritime hostilities linked to the ongoing Israel-Hamas war. The Pentagon confirmed the incident and stated they are aware of the attacks, with the USS Carney, an Arleigh Burke-Class guided-missile destroyer, being among the targeted vessels. As of now, there is no indication that the USS Carney returned fire on the assailants.

According to an anonymous U.S. official, the attack reportedly began around 10 a.m. in Sanaa, Yemen, and persisted for up to five hours. The Pentagon has not disclosed the source of the hostile fire. The Houthis, who control most of Yemen’s Red Sea coast and are allied with Iran, have not yet commented on the incident. However, a Houthi terrorist spokesman hinted at an impending “important” statement.

This event follows a recent engagement where the USS Carney intercepted three land attack cruise missiles and multiple drones launched by Iranian-backed Houthi forces in Yemen. Pentagon Press Secretary Air Force Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder described the earlier incident as a “demonstration” of American capabilities and commitment to safeguarding partners and interests in the region.

The British military reported a suspected drone attack and explosions in the Red Sea, providing no further details. Last month, Houthi terrorists seized an Israeli-linked cargo ship, further heightening tensions in the region. The Houthi group’s actions underscore its alignment with Iran and its role in controlling Yemen’s Red Sea coast.

Horrific New Stories of Hamas Attacks in Israel Surface, Including Rape of ‘Beautiful Woman With Face of Angel’ Who Screamed to Be Killed

A “beautiful woman with the face of an angel’’ was raped by eight to 10 Hamas terrorists in Israel on Oct. 7, while another tragic victim was beheaded with a shovel trying to defend herself, a stricken survivor says.

Yoni Saadon, a 39-year-old father of four, told the UK’s Sunday Times that he is still haunted by the horrific scenes he witnessed at the Nova Music festival, when the Palestinian fiends slaughtered at least 364 festival-goers, including the gang-raped woman, who begged to be killed.

“I saw this beautiful woman with the face of an angel and eight or 10 of the fighters beating and raping her,” recalled Saadon, a foundry shift manager. “She was screaming, ‘Stop it already! I’m going to die anyway from what you are doing, just kill me!’

“When they finished, they were laughing, and the last one shot her in the head,” he said.

Saadon said he witnessed the gruesome act after pulling over him the body of a slain woman who had also been shot in the head — and smearing her blood on himself so it looked like he, too, was dead.

Hamas Official Forewarns of Impending Larger-Scale Terrorist Attack in Recent Interview

A top Hamas official suggested during an interview with Lebanese media this week that a terrorist attack larger than Hamas’ October 7 massacre was in the works and would happen in the not so distant future.

Osama Hamdan, who is in the terrorist organization’s Political Bureau, said on Wednesday that the terrorist organization had no regrets over murdering 1,200 Israelis and that a “war of liberation” was coming.

In the interview, which was transcribed by the Middle East Media Research Institute, the interviewer asked Hamdan, “If you could go back in time to October 6, would you still do what you did on October 7?” . . .

“You said that if the Israelis would make new arrests, after all the prisoners are released from [Israeli] prisons, you would carry out another operation,” the interviewer said. “So can you promise another October 7?”

“I can promise that a war of liberation is coming, not just another October 7,” Hamdan responded. (Read more from “Hamas Official Forewarns of Impending Larger-Scale Terrorist Attack in Recent Interview” HERE)

Iranian Drone Harasses U.S. Aircraft Carrier in Persian Gulf, Raising Tensions

An Iranian drone harassed a U.S. air craft carrier in the Persian Gulf on Tuesday, according to a U.S. defense official.

The incident comes after Iranian terrorist proxies in the region have hijacked and attempted to hijack cargo ships and tankers in recent weeks that are tied to Israel. . .

One video that circulated on social media this week purported to show footage from an Iranian drone that was harassing the same carrier strike group.

The footage appears to correlate with statements from an official in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) who said that the drone’s presence interfered with U.S. helicopter operations, according to Iran’s state-run Farsnews Agency.

Satellite imagery from this week showed the carrier strike group only 62 miles away from Iran, a clear sign from the U.S. that Iran should not escalate tensions in the region. (Read more from “Iranian Drone Harasses U.S. Aircraft Carrier in Persian Gulf, Raising Tensions” HERE)

NATO Reaffirms Commitment to Ukraine’s Membership; Report: Russia Offered to End War If Ukraine Dropped NATO Bid

In a recent announcement, the Secretary General of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), Jens Stoltenberg, reiterated the alliance’s unwavering support for Ukraine’s long-term membership, affirming that all NATO members agree on Ukraine eventually joining. However, Stoltenberg emphasized that this accession would occur post-war and only after significant reforms have been implemented.

Stoltenberg highlighted the forthcoming NATO-Ukraine Council meeting, where discussions would center on identifying and prioritizing key reforms necessary for Ukraine to meet the criteria for NATO membership. He cited recent support measures, such as the air defense coalition, substantial funding, and the inauguration of the F-16 training center in Romania for Ukrainian pilots, as demonstrations of NATO’s commitment to Ukraine’s security.

While underscoring NATO’s consensus on Ukraine’s eventual membership, Stoltenberg clarified that full accession would be contingent on Ukraine’s resolution of the ongoing conflict and the implementation of critical reforms. He emphasized the need for “full interoperability” between Ukrainian and NATO forces, based on NATO doctrines and training procedures.

Addressing concerns about admitting a nation currently at war, Stoltenberg stated, “All Allies agree that in the midst of a war full membership is not possible.” Nonetheless, he expressed the alliance’s commitment to exploring ways to bring Ukraine and NATO closer together during this challenging period.

This affirmation echoes previous statements, despite past criticism from within the alliance. Hungary’s Viktor Orban and Germany’s Chancellor Olaf Scholz have expressed reservations, with Orban questioning the readiness of all NATO members to accept Ukraine and Scholz advocating caution until after the conflict, citing unmet criteria and conditions.

Despite these reservations, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky asserted in September that Ukraine considers itself “a de facto member of NATO.” The cautious approach extends beyond NATO, with European leaders expressing a similar sentiment regarding Ukraine’s potential European Union membership, emphasizing the need for reforms and the resolution of internal challenges before formal action is taken.


Russia Offered to End War if Ukraine Dropped NATO Bid: Kyiv Official

By Newsweek. Russia offered to end Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine in the spring of 2022 if Ukraine agreed to drop its ambitions to join NATO, according to the head of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s political party, who was present at peace negotiations.

David Arakhamia, leader of the Ukrainian political party Servant of the People, revealed part of the purported deal during an interview with Ukrainian journalist Natalia Moseychuk on Friday. The Kyiv official previously led the Ukrainian delegation that held peace talks with senior Russian officials in the months following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

Both sides of the war have laid out conditions for a ceasefire in the conflict in recent months, but many war analysts doubt neither Zelensky nor Russian President Vladimir Putin currently has a serious urge to end the 21-month-long fight.

According to Arakhamia, however, there was a drafted peace agreement between Ukrainian and Russian negotiators early in the war. Arakhamia said that Moscow pledged to end the fighting if Ukraine’s agreed to remain neutral and forego its bid to join NATO.

Hamas Hostages’ Whereabouts Unknown, Complicating Negotiations for Release

The Argentine news outlet Infobae reported on Sunday, citing “sources familiar with the details of the [hostage] agreement,” that the jihadist terrorist organization Hamas does not know the location of some of the estimated 240 people abducted from Israel on October 7, complicating the group’s ability to negotiate for their release.

The Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani appeared to verify that report on Sunday, telling the Financial Times that some of the hostages were “missing” and that Hamas would allegedly use the time bought in a truce Israel agreed to in exchange for the release of hostages to find others they have allegedly lost. Qatar allows Hamas, a genocidal jihadist terror organization, to maintain its “political” operations base in Doha and has been helping Hamas communicate with the government of Israel and its allies.

The whereabouts of the hostages not in direct Hamas custody remain unknown. Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), a rival terrorist group, reportedly claimed to be keeping 30 of those hostages imprisoned. Some reports have suggested that organized crime syndicates in Gaza, which Hamas controls, may be keeping individual hostages or families in captivity independent of direct Hamas control.

Hamas took its hostages on October 7 as part of a massive, unprecedented terror assault it has dubbed the “al-Aqsa flood.” On that day, the jihadists invaded Israel and began indiscriminately killing civilians, raiding residential communities and executing entire families in door-to-door attacks. The terrorists filmed themselves abducting people, killing them, torturing them, desecrating the bodies of victims, and posted many of the videos to social media, including the profiles of their victims. Eyewitness and forensic evidence indicate that the terrorists engaged in multiple acts of gang rape, including at least one killing in which a woman was shot in the head in the middle of a gang rape. Authorities have also found evidence of Hamas terrorists killing and mutilating children, including decapitated and charred bodies of babies. Israeli officials estimate the death toll of the “al-Aqsa flood” to be upwards of 1,200 people. (Read more from “Hamas Hostages’ Whereabouts Unknown, Complicating Negotiations for Release” HERE)

Xi Jinping Tells Chinese Women to Get Married and Make Babies

Frustrated by his inability to counter China’s rapidly declining birthrate, dictator Xi Jinping abandoned his rhetorical commitment to “gender equality” at a meeting with the All-China Women’s Federation and told women to start getting married and having babies to secure China’s future.

“It is necessary to guide women to play their unique role in carrying forward the traditional virtues of the Chinese nation and establishing good family virtues to create a new trend of family civilization,” Xi said at the meeting in early November.

“Only with harmonious families, good family education, and correct family traditions can children be raised and society develop in a healthy manner,” he contended.

Xi said his regime would “actively cultivate a new culture of marriage and child-bearing,” including more enthusiastic “guidance” for young people who do not grasp that marrying young and raising large families is part of their duty to the nation.

To that end, Xi said the Chinese Communist Party will seek to “organize and motivate women to contribute their strength to Chinese modernization,” by which he meant motivating them to give birth to the generation that will do the modernizing.

Israeli Hostages Released in Ceasefire: Families Reunited After Ordeal With Hamas Terrorists

A third group of Israeli hostages arrived back in Israel on Sunday evening as part of a temporary ceasefire between Israel and Hamas terrorists.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said that based on information from the Red Cross, which has acted as an intermediary between the IDF and the terrorists, the group of hostages that were released included 14 Israelis and three foreign nationals.

The Times of Israel reported that the group of released Israeli hostages included Abigail Idan, 4; Hagar Brodetz, 40, and her children Ofri, 10, Yuval, 9, and Oriya, 4; Chen Almog Goldstein, 48, and Agam, 17, Gal, 11 and Tal, 9; Alma Avraham, 84; Aviva Siegel, 64; sisters Ela, 8 and Dafna, 15, and Elyakim; Roni Krivoi, 25, a dual Russian-Israeli national.

One of the hostages that was released, Abigail Idan, who turned 4 while being held hostage by Hamas terrorists, is a dual U.S. citizen. Both of her parents were murdered by Hamas terrorists in Kfar Aza kibbutz during the October 7 attacks.

U.S. Navy Foils Terrorist Hijacking Attempt of Israeli-Owned Tanker

In a dramatic turn of events, a U.S. Navy destroyer, the USS Mason, successfully thwarted a terrorist hijacking attempt on the Liberian-flagged Central Park chemical tanker, which is owned by Israeli billionaire Eyal Ofer’s Zodiac Group. The incident occurred in the Gulf of Aden, where five armed gunmen attempted to seize control of the vessel.

Upon responding to a distress call from the tanker’s crew, the USS Mason intercepted the attempted hijacking, pursuing the ship towards Yemen. According to Fox News correspondent Jennifer Griffin, warning shots were fired by the U.S. Navy personnel during the pursuit, leading to the apprehension of the five armed hijackers. The terrorists had reportedly boarded the tanker from a skiff, attempting to break into the ship’s Citadel (safe room) where the crew had secured themselves.

This marks the second hijacking attempt on the same vessel in recent days, with Iranian-backed Houthi terrorists previously making a similar effort. In this latest incident, a Japanese destroyer provided assistance to the USS Mason during the interdiction, while two Chinese Navy warships in the vicinity did not offer support.

Despite the hijackers’ attempt to gain access to the safe room, the crew remained secure, prompting the terrorists to exit the vessel and attempt an escape back to Yemen. The U.S. Navy personnel, along with the support of a U.S. helicopter gunship, successfully apprehended the hijackers, who are currently under questioning by the U.S. military under counter-piracy authorities. The incident highlights the ongoing security challenges faced by maritime vessels in the strategically vital waters of the Gulf of Aden.
