WATCH: New York Muslim Rally Declares US the “#1 Terrorist’
At a rally in Times Square, New York, Muslims marked International Quds Day with vicious attacks on both the US and Israel.

They're telling me to hide behind a wall in the lobby of a campus building - until they can safely bring me in.
The baroque clocks of University College London (UCL) have just struck seven, and a CST security guard is frantically informing me that students are moving into another room - the third one this evening - since an angry mob have discovered the safe space where we're hiding.
Suddenly I'm rushed into the classroom where a dozen students are standing in utter shock, petrified over scenes that no student should see.
The student organiser, Liora, is telling me to stay in the room. If the mob sees me, we will be penned in on all sides.Read More
