President Trump’s nominee to be the U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, one of the international figures invited to address those on 2017’s historic WND Israel tour this November, has been confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

It was in a 52-46 vote late Thursday that senators endorsed Friedman, the son of an Orthodox rabbi.

“David Friedman loves Israel and loves America,” said Mat Staver, founder of Libery Counsel and president of Christians in Defense of Israel.

“Now is a critical time to strengthen the relationship between the United States and Israel, and Friedman is the right person for this task,” he said. “It is horrendous that Jews can no longer live in Gaza, and Christians are a dwindling minority in Bethlehem. Israel must be recognized as a democratic state, and Jerusalem must be given the rightful title as the eternal and undivided capital of Israel,” Staver said.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported only two Democrats supported Friedman, Sens. Robert Menendez of New Jersey and Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

“Republican support for Mr. Friedman was a sure thing despite a rocky confirmation hearing last month, punctuated not only by protesters critical of his statements opposing a Palestinian state and supporting Jewish settlements in the West Bank, but also by Democratic senators concerned about the harsh rhetoric he has used to attack politicians whose Israel policy differs from his,” the report said.

Liberal Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat, opposed him on the basis of her belief that he “takes extreme positions.”

Democrats have claimed Friedman is not supportive enough of a “two-state solution,” under which land would be taken from Israel to create a state of “Palestine.”

The Gazette reported Palestinians now are worried Friedman will move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

But the confirmation was endorsed by Israel’s ambassador in Washington, Ron Dermer, who said he is “looking forward to working closely with you to make the U.S.-Israel alliance stronger than ever,” as well as Benjamin Netanyahu, who said, “New U.S. ambassador to Israel David Friedman will be warmly welcomed as President Trump’s representative and as a close friend of Israel.”

Politico reported Friedman already has indicated he will live in Jerusalem while ambassador.

The vote was through a roll call on a position that usually has been done by voice vote or through unanimous consent.

Friedman previously served as a lawyer to President Trump, and pledged during his confirmation hearing to affirm U.S. policy.

“David Friedman has the skills and experience to represent the United States in one of the most complex regions in the world,” Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., has said.

Friedman, along with Netanyahu, is expected to address the 2017 WND Israel tour group later this year.

“This is going to be a very different and very exciting tour,” said WND founder, Editor and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Farah, who has led tours to Israel the last five years. “It will still very much be a spiritual pilgrimage, but 2017 marks a major shift in the political landscape between the two countries, and we wanted to add that special dynamic to the trip this year.”

Friedman earlier won a 12-9 approval vote in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“By joining this tour, you will be among the first American groups to experience this new climate of partnership between the U.S. and Israel following the Trump Revolution,” said Farah. “This is something I am looking forward to personally with great anticipation. In fact, I’ve been waiting for this for 28 years.”

November may seem far away, but, in some previous years, registration has been cut off as early as June. To accommodate WND’s special guests, logistics will be more complicated than ever because Israel does not have an abundance of facilities that can handle groups of more than 400 people. Farah cautions the time to register is now.

The trip has been endorsed by no less than Chuck Norris.

“I would encourage everyone to check out WND’s ‘Journey to the Holy Land’ from Nov. 2-12, 2017, led by our friend, Joseph Farah, who is the founder, editor and chief executive officer of WND,” Norris said. “He’s also an expert on Israel and the Middle East. Bibi and U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman have been invited to speak to the tour group, and I hope they do. Check out the educational and inspiring itinerary here.

‘Planet of Heroes’: Top Tips & Cheats You Need to Know
Source:  Heavy.com
Friday, 24 March 2017 14:18

Here are the top nine tips/tricks/cheats you need to know for Planet of Heroes.


1. Embrace (Mini) Map Awareness

Planet of Heroes

• Always keep an eye on the minimap – it provides a ton of useful information. Look out for enemies and their movements. Are they coming into your area of the jungle? Setup a gank. Are they going to kill the Archon for that amazing buff? Try to steal it.


2. Own Those Glyphs

Planet of Heroes

• The glyphs and jungle monsters are neutral, which means you and your enemies can dive into each others jungle area and steal them – make sure you use everything you see to your benefit. You don’t want your enemies to get your precious buffs, do you?


3. Understand the Roles of Each Hero

Planet of Heroes

Planet of Heroes’ heroes are separated by four archetypes: Tanks, Marksmen, Supports and Assassins. Tanks have a lot of health, can sustain a lot of damage and act as the frontline of your team. Marksmen are the backline of your team and provide assistance with ranged attacks and crowd control. Assassins have a very low health pool, but compensate well with very high burst damage and the ability to duel with other heroes more easily. Last, but not least, are the Supports, the heart and soul of every team – their abilities are mostly a mix of heals or shields that help the team to stay alive in a fight.


4. Team Building Matters

Planet of Heroes

• When creating your team, make sure you create a balanced combination. 3 tanks? Sounds good since they’ll all survive longer, but who will do the damage? Tanks are referred to as tanks but they don’t have cannons. Well, Bluebeard does at least…


5. Maximize the Power of Runes

Planet of Heroes

• The game’s rune system is where the heart of customization happens for your heroes. They make your heroes more unique and can even alter your playstyle. Each hero level provides you with access to new runes, so make sure to read their descriptions. When you play with a new hero you probably won’t have many runes unlocked, but you can still can be matched up against players who do – here you will need to play smart. Don’t just rush them and be like “Oi mate! Fight me 1on1 behind Tesco!” This will always end badly. Sneak around the corner and ambush them. Play smart, not hard.
