So the Postal Service decides to issue a stamp commemorating the Statue of Liberty. Just one slight little problem — the postage stamp commemorates a cheap schlocky knock-off statue that graces, naturally, the strip in Las Vegas.
Two female activists were arrested and detained in Saudi Arabia on Friday after being caught behind the wheel in Riyadh.
Following this month's breakthrough in talks on Iran's disputed nuclear program, the U.S., Russia and other world powers are now discussing whether to invite representatives from the Islamic republic to an upcoming peace conference aimed at ending Syria's civil war.
The Iran talks that concluded on Sunday in Geneva should have focused on one central question: Is Iran's ultimate ambition to be a nuclear force that can dominate the Gulf and the Arab region as well as threaten the survival of Israel?
Israel's prime minister harshly condemned the international community's nuclear deal with Iran on Sunday while Saudi Arabia remained conspicuously quiet, reflecting the jitters felt throughout the Middle East over Iran's acceptance on the global stage.

China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Vietnam and Algeria on Tuesday won seats at the Human Rights Council, the U.N.'s highest rights monitoring body.
Hundreds of thousands of Chinese students are flocking to U.S. colleges and universities, helping to drive the number of international students studying in America to record levels.
Beyond the headlines, life on Earth is getting better every day
The publishers of comic books are obsessed with the politically correct. Diversity and quotas are more important than dispatching evil. Spider-Man has been reimagined as a black Hispanic teenager. The Green Lantern is out of the closet. Early next year, Marvel Comics rolls out a Muslim superheroine.
President Obama is losing respect in Saudi Arabia and risks U.S. influence in the entire Middle East, where Russia is posed to pounce, the head of an independent Saudi-based think tank warned Thursday.
A report based on information from NATO says Saudi Arabia has been paying Pakistan to build nuclear weapons and is now ready to take delivery.
