          The Odyssey by Homer – the first step      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The sea that separates Odysseus from home was the lifeblood of ancient Greece. Homer’s story of return takes us on a journey that goes beyond geography


This is the first one, the big one, the ur-road movie: the Odyssey. Homer’s poem tells of Odysseus’s decade-long attempt to return to his home island of Ithaca – a “man of twists and turns driven time and again off course, once he had plundered the hallowed heights of Troy”. (Robert Fagles’ translation for Penguin, which I recommend.)

Here’s some context. Banish the thoughts of modern nation-state Greece and think instead of the Hellenes as they were, a widely scattered, littoral people, linked by language and custom, spread thinly from Massilia (now Marseille, founded by the Greeks in about 600BC) to the Black Sea. Edith Hall’s book Introducing the Ancient Greeks reminds me that Plato said his people liked to live “like frogs or ants around the pond”. They were traders and colonists and explorers. One Marseillais, Pytheas, circumnavigated Britain and perhaps got as far as Denmark and Iceland, and wrote about it in his lost book On the Ocean. The trackless wastes of the sea were the Greeks’ element. Aside from the Odyssey, in antiquity there existed an epic account, called Returns, of other Greek heroes’ homecomings from Troy, thought to have included the stories of Agamemnon’s catastrophic return to Argos, only to be slaughtered by his wife Clytemnestra, and Menelaos’s journey back to Sparta, via a long detour to Egypt. A fragment of Sappho, discovered on papyrus last year, has the narrator-poet anxiously awaiting her brother Charaxos’s return from a voyage. The perilous maritime journey was not only a Greek poetic theme, but part of Greek lived experience.

          Problematic Online Gaming Among a Sample of University Students in Egypt      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Objectives: Despite the undeniable benefits of the internet, it can still be harmful sometimes. Problematic internet use has been of interest to researchers for years. However, lately, more focus was given to online gaming. Subjects and Methods: In total, 996 students were recruited from 6 faculties in Ain Shams University. After obtaining personal data including data about academic achievement, students were assessed using Socioeconomic Status Scale, Young Internet Addiction Test, and Internet Gaming Disorder Scale. Results: The mean age of the students was 19.6 years (±1.6 SD), and the majority of the sample were female individuals (55.9%). As regards internet addiction (IA), only 3.4% had severe dependence, while 41.5% and 40.7% had mild and moderate dependence, respectively. Around quarter of the sample experienced problematic gaming, with disordered gamers constituting 9.3% of the sample and risky gamers 15.9% of the sample, while the rest were normal gamers. A weak negative correlation was found between age and both IA and internet gaming. There was a significant relation between IA and academic achievement. No correlation was detected between academic achievement and IA or internet gaming. Conclusions: IA was detected in >80% of the sample, while problematic gaming was detected in around quarter of the sample. A significant relation was found between academic achievement and IA, but not with internet gaming disorder. Neither IA nor problematic online gaming could be correlated to academic achievement. The authors declare no conflict of interest.

          Italian Coastguard ship with 67 migrants to dock at Italian port      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Rome, July 11 (IANS/AKI) Italian Coastguard's Diciotto vessel carrying 67 rescued migrants will dock at an Italian port on Wednesday, Transport Minister Danilo Toninelli said.

The Interior Ministry said no Italian port had yet been indicated for the Diciotti to dock at.

The migrants will be disembarked at an Italian port and questioned, Transport Ministry sources said earlier.

The migrants, who include 12 Sudanese, 23 Pakistanis, seven Palestinians, 10 Libyans, four Algerians, four Moroccans, two Egyptians, a Bangladeshi, a Ghanaian, a Chadian, a Nepalese and a Yemeni, were transferred to the Diociotto after they were rescued off Libya by an Italian commercial ship, the Vos Thalassa, on Monday.

The Vos Thalassa responded to a distress call from a boat adrift off the Libyan coast and picked up the migrants after arriving on the scene before the Libyan Coastguard. However, it was not allowed to dock in Italy.

Toninelli earlier tweeted that there would be investigations to punish "troublemakers" aboard the Vos Thalassa. Two of the migrants, a Ghanaian and a Sudanese national, allegedly made death threats to the ship's crew members.

It was not clear if the alleged death threats were made before or after Italy's hardline Interior Minister Matteo Salvini refused to allow the Vos Thalassa to dock at an Italian port.

It was the first time an Italian rescue ship was turned away from an Italian port due to the government's hardline policy and represented a new development in the fiery debate around migration.

          On Christ’s Temptation in the Wilderness – Pt.7      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
And so, this scripture most directly answereth to the temptation of Satan. For thus doth Satan reason (as before is said:) Thou art in poverty, and hast no provision to sustain thy life; therefore God taketh no regard nor care over thee, as he doth over his chosen children. Christ Jesus answereth, Thy argument is false and vain; for poverty or necessity secludeth not the providence or care of God; which is easy to be proved by the people of God, Israel, which in the desert did oftentimes lack things necessary to sustentation of the life, and for lack of the same they grudged and murmured. Yet did never the Lord cast away the providence and care of them; but according to the voice that he had once pronounced, to wit, that they were his peculiar people, and according to the promise made to Abraham, and to them before the departure from Egypt, he still remained their conductor and guide, till he placed them in peaceable possession of the land of Canaan, their great infirmities and manifold transgressions notwithstanding. Thus are we taught, I say, by Christ Jesus, to repulse Satan and his assaults by the word of God, and to apply the examples of his mercies which he hath showed to others before us, to our own souls, in the hour of temptation and in the time of our troubles; for what God doth to one at any time, the same appertaineth to all that hang and depend upon God and his promises. And therefore, howsoever we be assaulted by Satan, our adversary, within the word of God is armor and weapons sufficient. The chief craft of Satan is, to trouble those that begin to decline from his obedience, and to declare themselves enemies to iniquity, with diverse assaults; the end whereof is always one, that is, to put variance betwixt them and God into their conscience, that they should not repose and rest themselves in his assured promises. And to persuade this, he useth and inventeth diverse arguments. Sometimes he calleth the sins of their youth, and which they have committed in the time of blindness, to their remembrance: very oft, he objecteth their unthankfulness towards God, and present imperfections, by sickness, poverty, tribulations in their household, or by persecution. He can allege, that God is angry, and regards not; or by the spiritual cross, which few feel, and fewer do understand the utility and profit of it, he would drive God’s children to desperation: and by infinite means more, goeth he about, seeking, like a roaring lion, to undermine and destroy our faith. But impossible it is for him to prevail against us, unless that obstinately we do refuse to use the defense and weapon that God hath offered; yea, I say, that God’s elect cannot refuse it, but seek for their defender, when the battle is most strong: for the sobs, groaning’s, and lamentations of such as fight; yea, the fear they have to be vanquished, the calling and praying they make for continuance, are the undoubted and right seeking of Christ, our champion. We refuse not the weapon, although sometimes by infirmity, we cannot use it as we would. It sufficeth, that the heart unfeignedly sob for greater strength, for continuance, and for final deliverance by Christ Jesus. That which lacketh in us, his sufficiency doth supply, for it is He that fighteth and overcometh for us. But for bringing of the examples of the Scriptures, if God permit, in the end we shall speak more largely, when it shall be entreated, why Christ permitted himself thus to be tempted. Sundry impediments now do call me from writing in this matter; but by God’s grace, at convenient leisure, I purpose to finish, and to send unto you. I grant the matter that proceeded from me, is not worthy your labors and pains to read it; yet seeing it is a testimony of my good mind towards you, I doubt not, but you will accept it in good part. God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, grant unto you, to find favor and mercy in the presence of that Judge, whose eyes and knowledge do pierce through the secret cogitations of all hearts, in the day of temptation which shall apprehend all flesh, according to that mercy which you, illuminated and directed by his Holy Spirit, have shown unto the afflicted. The God of all comfort and consolation confirm and strengthen you in his virtue, unto the end. Amen.
          An unintended consequence of Trump's trade war is coming for one of the industries that will be hit hardest, and it could give him a big win      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

soybean farmer

  • US soybean farmers are expected to be a major loser in President Donald Trump's trade war with China.
  • US soybean exports surged over the past two months because of distortions from Trump's trade battles with China.
  • This is likely to boost US second-quarter gross domestic product, helping to give Trump a big public-relations win on the economy. 

US soybean farmers are expected to get whacked by President Donald Trump's trade war with China, but not before helping hand the president a potentially significant economic victory.

While many farmers and experts expect the industry to take a significant hit because of the trade war, dramatic changes in soybean shipments ahead of the tariffs could help lift upcoming US gross-domestic-product numbers, giving Trump a big economic talking point.

Soybeans were hit with a new tariff by the Chinese government last week as part of the retaliation for Trump's tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods. The decision to apply duties to soybeans was a big one — the crop is the largest US agricultural export, and China was the destination for $14.2 billion worth of US soybeans in 2016.

But the move was a long time coming. China threatened to impose restrictions on soybeans as far back as March. This gave US soybean farmers an opportunity to rush the product out of the country before the trade war kicked off in earnest, but it also seriously shifted trade patterns for the crop.

According to The Wall Street Journal, China began to shift its purchases away from US farmers and toward Brazilian soybeans in the spring. With China soaking up much of the Brazilian supply, other countries like Egypt, Thailand, and the Netherlands increased their purchases of US soybeans. This led to a surge in US exports, but also a steep drop in shipments to China that increased longer-term concerns.

But for 2018's second quarter, the outlook for soybean farmers is solid. Based on data from Ian Shepherdson, the chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, soybean exports will clock their two best months since mid-2016 in May and June.

In turn, the soybean mad dash is likely to provide a huge boost to second-quarter US GDP, Shepherdson said.

"Weekly data show that soybean exports rose again in June, but we're then expecting to see a steep fall in July," Shepherdson wrote in a note to clients. "In the second quarter, though, we estimate that soybean exports will contribute some 0.6 percentage points to GDP growth, at an annualized rate."

The Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank's GDP Now, a tracker used to predict quarterly GDP, predicts second-quarter GDP will hit 3.8% annualized growth.

Screen Shot 2018 07 09 at 5.22.33 PM

The sudden uptick in soybean exports mirrors the surge during the summer of 2016, when crop yields from South America — the typical soybean suppliers over those months — fell well short of expectations and allowed US farmers to step in. That quarter, the boosted trade component, mostly due to the soybean surge, added 0.83 percentage points to GDP.

Trump has long set a target of 3% to 4% annual GDP growth for his administration. The soybean exports should provide a boost for one quarter, but the Trump administration hasn't been shy about pointing to single-quarter data to show that the country is meeting Trump's goals.

A boost would come amid significant price pressure for soybean farmers. Soybean futures contracts have fallen to their lowest level since 2009, leaving many farmers scrambling.

And the soybean support in second-quarter GDP data may not last long, according to Shepherdson, who said the economic boost from soybean exports "probably will reverse in full in the third quarter."

The first estimate for third-quarter GDP is scheduled for release on October 26, 11 days before the 2018 midterm elections.

From its earliest appearances on Egyptian ceramics, statues and tombs circa 2200 B.C. to the accidental discoveries of Prussian blue (1706) and YInMn blue (2009), the color blue boasts a rich history of inspiring creations that reach beyond the ocean and sky. Spanish master Pablo Picasso spent four years creating monochromatic paintings during his famous Blue Period; and French disruptor Yves Klein developed and trademarked his own intense shade of ultramarine, International Klein Blue.

Noting that “one color can be interpreted in vastly different ways” and that blue specifically is “an almost universally favored color with the ability to instill trust, inspire creativity and even lower heart rates,” Ruiz-Healy Art zeroes in on a single hue with “Blue Is Not a Color,” a summer exhibition uniting four members of the RHA roster with four guest artists.…

          Jailed Turkish academic Laçiner: I got used to lynching, at least accusations should make sense      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Renowned Turkish academic and political scientist Prof. Dr. Sedat Laçiner, who was arrested in the wake of a controversial military coup on July 15, 2016, has stated that “I respond to what is said about me, and I don’t run from either prosecution or debate. But the accusations must be a bit rational and fair. I got used to the lynching, but at least the accusations should make sense. Have a heart! I am also a human being.”
Turkish online news outlet T24 has published a letter sent by Professor Laçiner, who as of March 25 has been in prison for 610 days over alleged links to the Gülen movement, to veteran journalist Hasan Cemal, saying that he wants his previous life back.

“I have worked for decades to serve my country and my people, and I’ve tried hard. I studied at the best universities in the world, and I put forward world-respected studies… In return for all this labor and sacrifice, I was not supposed to be thrown into a deep well. I am sorry and I am worried about my future, even scared. But my fear for my country is greater. It may sound strange to you, but if I fear for myself, I tremble for my country and nation. Sins committed in the past set fire to today, and today’s sins will set fire to our future,” said Laçiner.

Laçiner studied at Ankara University and the University of Sheffield, where he was awarded an MA in international politics with distinction, and King’s College London, where he obtained his Ph.D. Since 2001, he had been teaching international relations and international security at Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University and the National Police Academy Security Studies Institute in Ankara. Professor Laçiner was appointed president of Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University in 2011, becoming the youngest rector in Turkey

Laçiner was editor of the Journal of Administrative Studies and Review of International Law and Politics as well as a regular contributor to TRT and other Turkish television and radio broadcasts. He is also chairman of the Journal of Turkish Weekly, a regular columnist for the Star newspaper and general coordinator of Ankara-based think tank the International Strategic Research Organization (ISRO).

He was appointed adviser to the Higher Education Board (YÖK) president, and in 2011 he was appointed president of Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University (ÇOMÜ) by then-Turkish President Abdullah Gül.

Laçiner is the author/co-author or editor of numerous books and articles, including “Iraq Global War and Turkey,” “The Iraq Crisis,” “Turks and Armenians,” “The World and Turkey,” “European Union with Turkey, Turkey’s Membership’s Impact on the EU,” “The Armenian Diaspora” and “Britain from a Different Perspective.”

Professor Laçiner was arrested in July 2016 after the attempted coup, and a prosecutor has demanded life imprisonment for him over his alleged ties to the Gülen movement.

The full text of the letter sent by Professor Laçiner to veteran journalist Hasan Cemal through his lawyer is as follows:

Honourable Hasan Cemal,

Venerable master,

I am writing these lines from Çanakkale Prison, where I have been detained for 20 months… 20 months, 577 days, 13,848 hours, waiting in a dungeon for this madness to end…

While I was out (a long time ago), reading your articles was a daily routine that I could not give up. Regardless of the subject matter, I cannot forget your effort to be fair, your liberal stance and your attitude in favor of freedom and righteousness. Unfortunately, there is no internet in prison, no computers… Forbidden… Therefore, one of the many rights and opportunities that I have been deprived of is the writings of modest experts like you…

***

Dear Cemal,

On July 20, 2016, I was taken into custody in my home, in my work room… When the police arrived, I was working on my computer and busy writing a column for the internet (website). They turned my house upside down and confiscated my computers and mobile phone. I was arrested three days later. I could not believe that I was said to be guilty of ‘violating the constitution,’ in other words, ‘staging a coup.’ When the police said, ‘We do not know, the public prosecutor will explain,’ I waited for the prosecutor’s interrogation.

But the prosecutor did not even ask a single question about the coup. When he didn’t ask, I told him where I was on July 15th, what I did. But the prosecutor did not seem to listen to me… Then I appeared before the judge. The hearing, which started at 20:00 in the evening, ended at08:30 the next morning. For a while, even the lawyers and the defendants were asleep in the hall. Interestingly, the judge did not even ask me and the other defendants a single question about July 15th, just like the prosecutor. As if the decisions had already been taken, and our fate was settled… Neither the prosecutor nor the judge was concerned with what I was describing. They did not even ask me where I was on July 15th…

On the day I was arrested more than half of the prosecutors and judges’ offices in the courthouse were empty and their names removed… If the judge who arrested me had not arrested me, perhaps he himself would have been arrested. The rooms, which are next to the office of the prosecutor who ordered my detention, were emptied the day before, and the prosecutors in those rooms had already been put in prison. I was arrested in such an environment.

Later, I found out that on the morning of July 16, 2016, an arrest list was brought from a ministry in Ankara to the courthouse, and my name was among those names.

Until more than two months from the day I was taken into custody, my lawyer was afraid that something would happen to him, and he couldn’t even come to visit me. The lawyer appointed by the bar due to legal obligation washed his hands of being my lawyer after a few days. I couldn’t find a lawyer for a long time. Some glitzy lawyers said, ‘We believe that Professor Sedat is innocent, but we cannot take this case; otherwise, we would be in danger, too.” The accusations were unreasonable, and the channels of legal aid were closed.

I wasn’t able to find out the reasons for the accusations, the grounds, the evidence, etc., until the indictment came out, I mean for almost eight months. Even then it was not possible to learn any of this when the indictment was written because there was not a single sentence in the indictment saying that I participated in or supported the coup. There wasn’t even a sentence in the indictment saying that there was involvement in the coup in Çanakkale province. The most tragicomic thing was the last page of the indictment, which said, ‘There was no element of force/violence in his actions, but there is a public benefit in his punishment.’

In Article 309 of the Turkish Penal Code [TCK], it is a criminal offense to ‘try to abolish the order prescribed by the Constitution using force and violence…’ In the TCK’s 309th article, force and violence are essential and indispensable elements of a crime. In other words, the indictment admits that there was no force or violence in my actions and admits that there was no offense and that I am not guilty. However, it says my punishment will be to the public’s benefit. So it was clearly said, ‘Sedat Laçiner is not guilty but must be punished.’ Could there be such logic? Could there be such a law?!

Another interesting point is that there was no coup attempt in Çanakkale province, where I reside. On the night of July 15-16, 2016 there was no military or civilian activity in the city where I lived, nothing related to the coup was attempted. I found out about the coup by chance on television that night. I was sitting on the balcony, and I could not believe that what I heard on the news was real. Despite the fact that my place was on a well-traveled road, there were no unusual events… As a matter of fact, the governor of Çanakkale made a statement to the Anadolu news agency on July 16 and said, ‘We are proud of our province because there was not a single coup plotter from Çanakkale. There were no putschists from our province.’ In fact, he added that there was no coup attempt in Çanakkale as well.

As soon as I learned about the coup (it must have been around 23:30-00:00), I started sending anti-coup messages through social media. I have stated that coups and violence cannot be a remedy for any problems and that the public should protect democracy and the law. While I was sharing these anti-coup messages, the conflicts still continued in Ankara and İstanbul… It is an interesting coincidence that my first message against the coup attempt and the president’s first message on CNN Türk were made at almost the same time.

So, from the moment I found out about the coup, I opposed it openly, I took a great risk. Probably if the coup attempt was successful, I would have been one of the people to be imprisoned. You will be surprised, but none of my anti-coup messages on social media were entered into the indictment. I wrote to the prosecutor many times saying I wanted these messages to be filed as evidence. I repeatedly expressed this in court. One-and-a-half years after my arrest, the court finally took the decision to investigate my messages about the coup on social media…

In this case, it was as if an invisible power was interfering with the collection of the evidence in my favor, or as if the judges and prosecutors feared something by knowing that the case had nothing to do with evidence or proof. I do not know…

The day I was taken into custody an interesting incident took place: One of the police officers searching my house from A to Z found a book titled ‘Who is this Fethullah Gülen’ in my library. This book by Faik Bulut is a critical-antithesis book that levels heavy criticism on Gülen and his movement from the beginning to the end and even includes insults. The police officer was delighted and took this book to his superior as if he had found great evidence of a crime. The superior examined the book for 5-10 minutes and then said to the police officer: ‘This is not for that. This book is considered evidence in his favor, do not take it,’ although the law requires that evidence both for and against be collected. At that moment I realized that in this case anything in my favor was being ignored, even if there was nothing against me…

They have been searching for months, are still searching, but they haven’t been able to find anything. I am still in detention ‘due to the fact that the evidence has not yet been sufficiently collected.’ These words are actually a confession of my innocence. They are still looking for evidence of my criminality, or I am already being punished, I have been imprisoned for years without being judged. This is called an extrajudicial execution.

***

I have been against violence my entire life, I have opposed every kind of coup… My writings, my speeches are quite clear… I am a man who has lived all his life in a glass bell jar. I have laid all my cards on the table. In this case, I am offended to be accused of being a coup plotter while I am one who hates violence, coups, bullying. The baseless mud thrown at me offends me even if it’s slander.

While I am a writer who has invited the power-holders to respect the constitution and the law, isn’t it ridiculous that I am being accused of violating the constitution?

Does it not go against the grain to accuse a scientist like me who defends civil authority by taking risks in the most sensitive of periods and cursing the coup?

On the other hand, during the history of the Republic, while many innocent people have been judged on accusations of violating the constitution, the real coup plotters were on the bench as judges, not defendants. You know, Celal Bayar, Adnan Menderes, Fatin Rüştü Zorlu, Hasan Polatkan and 11 other defendants were accused of ’violating the constitution’ on Yassıada and were sentenced to death. The prime minister and the two ministers who were tried on ridiculous accusations such as the baby case, the dog case, the tweezers case, were executed under the instructions of the putschists as in a theatre play. Now it’s frustrating for me to be where they stood. In the meantime, I must say that at the entrance of the hall where I am being tried, there is a sign saying ‘Theatre Hall’ (since there is no courtroom, the hearings are held in the Open Prison Theatre Hall). The Yassıada cases were a black mark on Turkish history. After 57 years, are Turkish law and politics still in the same place?

Dear Hasan Cemal,

Believe me, the cases in which I’m being tried are more nonsense than ‘the dog case’ and ‘the baby case’ against the late Menderes. Because in those cases there were actions of which Adnan Menderes was accused even if they were unfounded. Moreover, I am not a ruler like Bayar or Menderes, who ruled the country for 10 years. Isn’t it pushing the imagination too far to accuse an author, a scholar, a journalist like me who has no power but his pen, who has never used a weapon or been involved in a violent act, of being a coup plotter, terrorist and traitor?

I asked these questions to the court, too. ‘How many times,’ I cried out helplessly to the people in the courtroom. I asked them: ‘Am I the only one to see that? Are not these accusations, arrest without any evidence, the effort to produce a terrorist from an anti-terror expert, strange?’ It has been almost two years. I am tired now. It affects my mental health negatively that while basic principles of the law are violated, the so-called people of the law who should protect them make any violation of rights seem normal and routine. It’s like everybody is crazy and it seems like my consciousness is open. The worst thing in a nightmare like this is keeping your sanity.

Dear Hasan Cemal,

My master,

The only case they have against me is not violation of the Constitution. Lawsuits and investigations are pouring in every day. Although I was dismissed from my job on September 1, 2016, they are constantly opening investigations. I have recently received a yellow envelope from the presidency of Çanakkale University. They found a newspaper article I had written two years ago. They inquired if I had been trying to make our state seem incompetent in that article. And they are demanding my defense of it. And so my days pass; sometimes I have to defend my articles or my speeches.

One of the cases against me is about the Turkish Penal Code’s Article 301. On the order of Çanakkale University Rector Yücel Acer, who did not approve of my criticism of Turkey’s anti-terror policies, a criminal complaint was filed and the prosecutor’s office opened a case. In this case, I have to defend a column I wrote two years ago. My readers already know that I am a patriotic person. I have always maintained a stance that defends national interests, as much of a liberal as I am. If the government cannot even put up with my criticism about the fight against terrorism in Turkey, the new Turkey cannot even tolerate me. It is quite normal to be alarmed for democracy and justice, for freedom of expression and human rights.

What I have been through is not merely the question of lynching or destroying an academic named Sedat Laçiner with the help of the judiciary. Through me, not only justice and freedom of opinion, but also reason is being destroyed. A terrorist, a traitor, a coup plotter cannot be derived from the nationalist and patriotic posture of a person like me who always defends the interests of this country, a writer and a scientist like me who supports the government when they do the right thing and whose criticism is always constructive and technical.

I have already give up expecting them to be lawful, but at least they should be reasonable. Seeing that I have been lynched, they should be conscientious. There is logic even in a lie. When someone tells a great lie, people warn him ‘At least make it a plausible lie!’ I can respond to anything said against me. I will not dodge any discussion. But let the accusations be a little more logical, more conscientious. I have gotten used to being lynched, but there should be measure to that. Have a heart! I am also a human being.

***

So far in my hearings, more than 300, maybe 500, witnesses, defendants and complainants were heard. Not even one of these hundreds of people had a criminal complaint against me based on evidence that was witnessed. Not a single soul came up and said, ‘I saw him with a man from FETÖ or the Gülen movement.’ I don’t even know an elder brother or an imam from the movement. I haven’t attended a single meeting. Even when the Çanakkale governor organized the Turkish Language Olympiads, when more than 40,000 people filled the stadium, I wasn’t there.

I don’t have ByLock and I haven’t deposited money in Bank Asya. Not a single witness or prosecutor’s office could claim that ‘he did that,’ and they cannot since I have never attended a meeting of a religious organization. I have never been to a Quran school, either. I am not bragging by saying I have never been to a Quran course, but that is my life. My father and mother were social democrats, and my education was in secular and positivist institutions. From my primary to my doctoral education I have had secular teachers.

It is also very difficult for me to be a member of a religious group, even a political party or a nongovernmental organization, because of my critical, inquisitive, skeptical, truthful character. My acquaintances know I have a rebellious character. It is impossible for me to take part in organizations where a leader’s every word is accepted as a command. The things I have written and said are the products of my own mind. I have never been connected to anybody or any group by my mind and/or my stomach.

In almost two years of ongoing proceedings, the brothers, sisters, imams, accountants, sympathizers, artisans, students, businessmen and members of the Gülen movement were all heard. All this was very instructive for me. These hearings were like an obligatory course for me. Thanks to these courts, this was the first time that I have been able to learn about this organization in detail. I suppose when these cases are over I will be a distinguished expert on this structure (!). But now in charges that make no sense, I am accused of being a member of this organization, of being a terrorist and of being a coup plotter. I feel like I will lose my mind when I think about it.

As I said, they could not find any evidence about me, but they are still searching. Hundreds of people who were heard in the courtroom said they only knew me from the media, and there was no other testimony. I don’t have a ByLock record. The court then decided: ‘Investigate all the phone calls of the defendant between the years 2010 and 2016 to see if the defendant had any calls with ByLock users.’

Can you imagine? They will check thousands, maybe tens of thousands, of phone numbers of people who called me or who I called for six-and-a-half years and see if any of them downloaded ByLock, and that would be the evidence with which to charge me. I experienced a similar situation when I was dismissed from my job at the university. They dismissed me because I was on trial, and they added my dismissal as evidence in the case.

***

Dear Cemal,

I remained in this country because I believed this country to be a hope for humanity. I finished my master’s and doctorate in England. I could have continued my career there and not come back to Turkey. When I finished my doctorate at King’s College, my mentor insisted I stay in London, but I kindly refused and said: ‘I have to go back to Turkey, my homeland. I have achieved this thanks to Turkey, now I have to pay my debt to my country.’ I thought my country needed my contributions at that time. When I said this, my experienced and wise professor said: ‘Look, Sedat, I respect your decision. But do not forget that the place to which you will return is a Middle Eastern country like Iran, Syria, Egypt. They may not understand you; you may be disappointed.’

Unfortunately my counselor was right, I have paid a heavy price in prison for such a crucial life lesson. If I had listened to Professor Karsh that day and stayed in London, my knowledge, my studies would be respected and my research would be supported; at least I would not be in prison. Today I see more clearly why developed countries have developed and those who have not developed tend to stay behind. I understand much better that the key to progress is to respect scientists, writers, journalists and artists.

Dear Hasan Cemal,

There is more to write. Although every word is painful, there is a lot more to write. But I do not want to take your time and tire you out. I just want you to know that it is not a personal story that I am living, but the tragedy of a country… The things I endure are not a drama lived by me that finishes with me; if this silence persists, it will be a drama for millions and future generations… I am not the only one forgotten in the Çanakkale dungeons; freedom of the press, freedom of expression, rule of law, academic freedom are also here… I’m not the only one lying behind bars hopeless about tomorrow; Turkey’s future also lies here…

It is said ‘Instead of an innocent being jailed, let thousands of criminals walk in the streets’ because if an innocent is jailed, that means justice is imprisoned. As far as I can see there is not one but many innocent people in prison. The periods of oppression — May 27, 1960, March 12, 1971, September 12, 1980, February 28, 1997, etc. — proved that injustice causes not only its victims but our country as a whole to lose.

One reason for our being underdeveloped is the lack of justice. That’s why this letter should be considered a call for justice that has fallen behind bars and a call for freedom of speech, not as the personal and exceptional cry of a journalist and a scholar who has been prisoned for 20 months.

I miss my home, my children, my wife, my friends, my students and my books… I long for all of them. I want my previous life back. I have worked to serve my country and my people. I have studied at the world’s best universities. I have accomplished things respected worldwide. The reward for all these efforts and self sacrifice should not be being thrown into a deep hole.

I’m sorry and I’m worried about my future, I’m even scared. However, my fear for my country is greater. It may sound strange to you, but if I fear for myself, I tremble for my country and my nation.

The laments of the past are burning us now. Don’t let the laments of the present burn the future…

I do not ask for much — a little plausibility, a little justice… We are the people of this country, the children of our country, not the enemy… Let’s leave aside the law of the enemy. Let’s go with the law of fraternity now. Please…

Best regards.

          Will Boris Johnson’s Departure Prompt New UK Diplomacy?       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Britain's Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Boris Johnson arrives at 10 Downing Street in London, Britain, July 3, 2018. 

© 2018 Reuters

Several months before his resignation this week, the UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson claimed that standing up for human rights creates a “more prosperous and progressive world,” and spoke of “championing” human rights. But despite this, the current UK government’s approach to human rights has been weak, inconsistent, and often incoherent.

For example, the UK remains one of the Saudi-led coalition’s strongest supporters. The UK refuses to call out the coalition’s massive violations of the laws of war in Yemen, even though the coalition continues to unlawfully kill Yemeni civilians, strike weddings, and bomb homes. The UK has sold at least £4.6 billion worth of arms to Saudi Arabia since the beginning of the conflict, and the UK government’s refusal to halt Saudi arms sales puts it at risk of being complicit in future unlawful attacks. Documents made public in a court case last year suggest that Johnson played a crucial role inside the government in pushing for a continuation of UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

London’s diplomatic record on Myanmar, where a military campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya – which constitutes crimes against humanity – has forced more than 700,000 people from their homes, is equally problematic. The UK Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee said as much when it sharply criticized the government’s lack of leadership on the global stage, saying its efforts had “struggled to achieve a clear sense of direction.” 

Despite being a permanent member of the UN Security Council, the UK has failed to advance a resolution for a vote to refer the situation in Myanmar to the International Criminal Court, leaving hundreds of thousands of victims of atrocities without redress. Meanwhile, the UK’s efforts to combat sexual violence in conflict – a landmark initiative created by one of Johnson’s predecessors William Hague – has been left wanting in the face of widespread rape against the Rohingya.

The UK’s policy on Egypt has also been very weak. Under the leadership of President al-Sisi, more than 60,000 people have been imprisoned, protests have been effectively banned, and the Egyptian army is committing terrible abuses in Sinai. Human Rights Watch has exposed the widespread torture of political detainees by Egypt’s security forces. Yet the UK government has remained silent, with Foreign Office Middle East Minister Alistair Burt even praising Sisi’s abusive counterterror operations.

If the new Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt wants to advance Britain’s diplomatic reputation and voice in the world, he should make sure that human rights return to the centre of UK foreign policy.

          Israel Day 5/10 : Masada      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The ruins of the mountain-top fortress of Masada are spectacular, but in light of its tragic story they also become a powerful place to visit. Up until 1986, all IDF soldiers climbed the Snake Path up the 900 feet to the top and swear an oath of "Masada shall not fall again."



the hike up the path takes about 45 minutes to an hour


As we approached the park, we noticed people camped out by the entrance. That would be fun!


In order to keep on schedule, we took the cable car up...



Built during the time of the Maccabees, it was built up and fortified by Herod the Great in case of a Jewish rebellion or if Cleopatra of Egypt should try to kill him.









The attention to detail here was amazing! Walls were painted with brightly colored frescoes. Floors were elaborately tiled. Stones were carved with beautiful designs.





didn't see many triangular tiles

dovecotes were built to raise doves for eating and sacrifices

Byzantine monks later built a church on the site and lived there.






Herod's ceremonial and administrative palace had a swimming pool as well as bathhouses. One bathhouse included a raised floor that was heated by furnaces forcing hot water through pipes.

 the furnaces from the outside where the fire was lit

Herod had his residential three-tiered palace carved into the north point, connected by stairs. Amazingly, he never lived there.




Long narrow storehouses were built to have enough food to last through a siege of 3 1/2 years. Wine sent to Herod from Italy were found here.


Large cisterns were dug at both the bottom and top of Masada. Water was channeled from nearby wadis to the lower cisterns and then carried up the mountain to deep water cisterns.






All this served the Jewish zealots, the Sicarri, well when they conquered the Roman garrison at  Masada in about 66-68 AD. After the Roman destruction of Jerusalem in 70AD, Lucius Flavius Silva and the 9000 men of 10th Legion turned their attention to the Jewish rebels there.

You can still see the ruins of the 8 Roman camps surrounding the mountain connected by a wall, 7 miles long and six feet thick to prevent escape.





Then the Romans built a 350 foot high ramp to raise a siege tower up to breach the gates. Using Jewish slave labor, they  knew the Sicarii would not kill them and stop the work.




rocks stored to use against enemy attacks

When the Romans reached the gates and set them on fire, the winds changed and turned the flames back onto the Romans. Silva decided to wait to breach the fortress in the morning. 

The Jewish leader, Eleazer ben Ya'ir, saw it as a sign from God. He gave an impassioned speech, convincing the people to kill themselves rather than be taken as Roman slaves. Lots were written on pieces of pottery and drawn to decide the 11 men who would kill the others. One of those men was chosen to then kill himself, a grievous sin for the Jews. 

“it is still an eligible thing to die after a glorious manner, together with our dearest friends . . . let us bestow that glorious benefit upon one another mutually, and preserve ourselves in freedom, as an excellent funeral monument for us”.

the site where the pieces of pottery used as lots were found

When the Romans arrived in the morning, they found the bodies of 960 men, women and children. Only 2 women and a few children survived by hiding in a cistern. 

It was another very hot day when we were there, so many people went back down to the visitor's center. Greg said there was time for a few of us to go and see Herod's palace on the north end OR the large cistern on the southern end but not both. We took that as a challenge we were ready to accept. Before the words were out of his mouth, we were off.

First we went to the palace...





Then we made a mad dash for the cistern...




It was totally worth it! And we even had time to get an ice cream before meeting back up at the entrance.

EGYPT: The mutilated remains of three children have been found dumped on the side of a Cairo road wrapped in black garbage bags on Tuesday, according to local reports.

The grisly discovery was made by a woman who saw dogs scavenging among what she thought was dumped garbage as she walked to work in the Marioteya district of greater Cairo - it was only when she got closer that she saw a baby’s head.

Preliminary investigations have revealed that the bodies belonged to a one-year-old baby, and two children aged three and five.

          Strangers Welcome Strangers      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

When my husband and I moved to Seattle to be near his sister, we didn’t know where we would live or work. A local church helped us find a place: a rental house with many bedrooms. We could live in one bedroom, and rent the others to international students. For the next three years, we were strangers welcoming strangers: sharing our home and meals with people from all over the world. We and our housemates welcomed dozens of international students in our home every Friday night for Bible study, too.

God’s people know what it means to be far from home. For several hundred years, the Israelites were literal foreigners—and slaves—in Egypt. In Leviticus 19, alongside familiar instructions like “Respect your father and mother” and “Do not steal” (vv. 3, 11), God reminded His people to empathetically care for foreigners, because they knew what it was like to be a foreigner and afraid (vv. 33–34).

While not all of us as followers of God today have experienced literal exile, we all know how it feels to be “foreigners” on earth (1 Peter 2:11)—people who feel like outsiders because our ultimate allegiance is to a heavenly kingdom. We are called to create a community of hospitality—strangers welcoming strangers into God’s family. The hospitable welcome my husband and I experienced in Seattle taught us to extend welcome to others—and this is at the heart of being the family of God (Romans 12:13).

This podcast is sort of like the Clustercast should have been.  I haven't actually listened to it yet, so I don't know if it's any good, but it sort of felt better, somehow.  It isn't anything like that incoherent and garbled anyway, which is a relief.

We spent the day collecting for the lifeboats, along with some excellent help from our pals Dylan from Blueback Hotrod, Neil from Meursault, Ed from 17 Seconds, Dave, Michael and the Stormettes from The Stormy Seas and Morgan from, erm, Glasgow.  I have to point out how important their help was as well.  It's easy to talk a good game and then to pussy out at the last minute, but despite the fact that both Neil and Ed had other things on today, everyone made the time to come down and help out, which is bloody good of them.  We collected a fair chunk of cash - Mrs. Toad's pretty blonde colleague collected the most, rather predictably.  Maybe we need fewer beardy alt-folkies and more hot babes next year.

Enjoy the podcast, then; we've got a lot of nautically-themed songs this week and could have had even more.  There are loads of songs, and we had far more on the list before trimming.  It's a bit out of control, this podcast, but actually I think it's quite good.  Dylan's roving reporter slots are just... well, they're just.  They're just. That's what they are.  Experience them for yourself.  Good luck.

          How to Destroy a Nation from Within      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A comment left at the "The Age of Aquarius" post at UNZ.com sums up nicely the decades long plan to destroy Germany from within.
Heros says:

The key goal of the Kaufmann, Morgenthau and Houton plans was the genetic destruction of Germany and Germans. After starving millions of German men in the Rhine Meadows Death Camps, they enslaved millions more German soldiers and sent them around the planet for years, even decades. Conditions in French slave labor camps alone were far worse than any German labor camp, and we won’t go into the gulags. After stripping the country of its men, Eisenhower deliberately sent thousands of famously horny black soldiers into Berlin to try to get the starving local Maidels to miscegenate. This occurred in every German city in all occupation zones and when Paton objected he was eliminated. Later, Muslim Turks were brought in to fill the labor and paternity shortages deliberately created, and the dilution of the German gene pool continued full throttle.
AFN and Radio Liberty started broadcasting American Jazz music and American media across Germany while “de-nazification” (the cultural destruction of Germany) eliminated anyone not on board with the NWO. Young post war Germans were brought up in world bombarded with guilt and victors propaganda where the truth could not be uttered. They easily fell prey to Cultural Marxism, and by the end of the 1968 revolutions, toxic socialism and multiculturalism was firmly implanted across Germany and Europe.
The next wave from 1968 to about 2012 was the period of cutting threads of social fabric, destroying the family, and tearing down nationalist and racial pride, while the Jewish homeland was strengthened and made invulnerable.

About 2012, after Iraq, Egypt, Libya, then Syria, were invaded and devastated for Zionism and greater Israel, the long planned and long awaited invasion of Europe was unleashed. The EU had torn down all internal barriers with Schengen and its refugee settlement legislation meant that no EU country could resist the invasion. They thought, anyway. But “New Europe” had not been shrouded long enough in talmudic media mind control, so they have resisted the invasion. They sure better hope they win, because we know how jews treat those who defy them and become Amalek.
What is important here is to understand that this was a multi-generational plan against all the Christian peoples of Europe. Then and now, the US military was nothing more than the nails driven home by jewish hammers, used to crucify Christian culture on the cross of Jewish Power.
Want to see what this invasion looks like in the nation formerly known as Italy?

Maybe the MSM will cover this invasion?
Maybe those self-appointed Masters of the Universe will help staunch the invasion?

JEDDAH: The Saudi Electricity Co. (SEC) started operating the “Waad Al-Shamal” plant, which partially depends on solar power to generate electricity, as part of its efforts to support economic and development projects and industrial areas through out the Kingdom.
SEC Chief Executive Ziad bin Mohammed Al-Shiha confirmed that the new power plant, which operates on natural gas as essential fuel, is within the company’s comprehensive strategy for advanced electricity projects.
It takes into account the region’s environmental conditions, reduces thermionic emissions and fuel consumption while providing for the needs of the industrial city, in addition to supporting the Kingdom going in the direction of renewable energy.
Al-Shiha said that the SEC has invested more than SR3.75 billion ($1 billion) in the power plant that is equipped with mirrors that generate electricity using solar power. It has also invested in establishing transfer stations, air- and ground-based transmission lines to supply Waad Al-Shamal and its industrial projects with electric power to promote and complete the electrical network in the north of the Kingdom and complete linking all electrical networks in the Kingdom.
The new power plant relies on the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project, modern gas unit technologies that contribute to reducing carbon and nitrogen oxide emissions (therefore reducing pollution), increasing efficiency and producing 50 megawatts of electric power through concentrated solar power.
The company also strives to save four million barrels of equivalent fuel during its operation.
The CEO said: “The execution of the power plant started in April 2014, after signing contracts to supply, install, test and operate four generators with a total capacity of 1,204 MVA, 61 dividers, two capacitors and a reactor.
“The company signed a contract with an international company to create the plant in December 2015, with a total capacity of 1,390 megawatts.”
On the support of the mining industry in the Kingdom, Al-Shiha confirmed that the electrical projects in the area will contribute to developing the northern border area, where tremendous reserves of crude phosphate abound, in addition to different types of ore which provide an opportunity to establish quarries and manufacturing industries and reinforce the Kingdom’s role in the mining industry internationally.
He also said that the new power plant will play a strategic role in linking the region with Egypt and Europe in the future.
The Waad Al-Shamal power plant includes the first locally made turbine by General Electric.

1/35 Israeli Tank M51 Super ShermanThis is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

During the 1960's, the Israeli Ordnance Corps upgraded their M4A1 Sherman tanks by equipping them with the powerful French 105mm CN-105-F1 tank gun and they were redesignated as M51s. The larger gun meant a muzzle brake was installed to minimize the greater recoil effect and a counterweight was fitted to the rear of the turret. The 460hp diesel engine and the combination of the Horizontal Volute Spring Suspension (HVSS) and wider T80 tracks gave the M51 improved mobility. During the Six-Day War in 1967, the M51s were used against newer T-54/55 tanks as well as JS-3 tanks from Egyptian, Iraqi, and Syrian armies. The M51's 105mm gun could take on these adversaries by using HEAT ammunition. After the war, these M51s continued to serve with distinction until they were finally retired in the early 1980s.

Sure, the contrast helps doctors spot breaks and fractures in bones, but more detail could help pinpoint other problems. Now, a company from New Zealand has developed a bioimaging scanner that can produce full color, three dimensional images of bones, lipids, and soft tissue, thanks to a sensor chip developed at CERN for use in the Large Hadron Collider.

          One year later — the answer to “Where Are Your Jews?”      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Oral Statement by United Nations Watch Agenda Item 9 General Debate UN Human Rights Council, 38th Session Delivered by Mr. Hillel Neuer, 3 July 2018 Transcript: Mr. President, one year ago in this chamber I asked the Arab states a simple question: “Where are your Jews?” My question was met with dead silence. Millions of people worldwide watched the video, witnessing for themselves the hypocrisy and double standards that characterizes much of what is said and done here. Today I have come to provide the answer to my question. Algeria, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, Yemen, Libya—your Jews fled as refugees after suffering persecution and deadly pogroms like the Farhud of Baghdad in 1941. Fortunately, countries like Israel, the U.S., Canada, France and others opened their doors, offering citizenship and equal rights. These Jewish refugees from Arab lands—whose suffering and losses the UN has never addressed—put their hardship behind them and built great lives for their families. Now let us contrast this with the situation of those descended from Arab refugees who fled the area of British Mandatory Palestine during the invasion of nascent Israel by Arab armies. What is holding them back? The answer is simple. Palestinians are the only population in the world not eligible for services by the UN refugee agency. Instead these descendants are governed by UNRWA, which holds generation after generation trapped in refugee camps, denied integration in the Arab countries they were born in and denied resettlement elsewhere. Some of UNRWA’s donors are waking up to the problem. As the Swiss …

    Fourteenth Week in Ordinary Time
    Matthew 9:32-38
    Friends, in today’s Gospel, Jesus directs his disciples to "ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest," to pray for evangelists to rescue the lost. But what precisely does it mean to evangelize?

    Euangelion (glad tidings) was a familiar word in the culture of the New Testament authors. When the emperor or one of his generals won a battle, he would send evangelists ahead to announce the glad tidings.

    The first Christians were being edgy when they adapted the word to their purposes. They were saying that the definitive battle had indeed been won, but that it had nothing to do with Caesar and his armies. It had to do with the victory that God had won in Christ over sin and death.

    Jesus went into the belly of the beast—into the heart of our dysfunction, to the limits of godforsakenness—and he defeated the dark powers. He demonstrated that the divine love is greater than our greatest enemies.

    This evangelical message entails, too, that there is a new King, a new Emperor. Christ, the victor over sin and death, must be the center of your life.

    Tuesday of the Fourteenth Week in Ordinary Time
    Lectionary: 384

    Reading 1  Hos 8:4-7, 11-13

    Thus says the LORD:
    They made kings in Israel, but not by my authority;
    they established princes, but without my approval.
    With their silver and gold they made
    idols for themselves, to their own destruction.
    Cast away your calf, O Samaria!
    my wrath is kindled against them;
    How long will they be unable to attain
    innocence in Israel?
    The work of an artisan,
    no god at all,
    Destined for the flames—
    such is the calf of Samaria!

    When they sow the wind,
    they shall reap the whirlwind;
    The stalk of grain that forms no ear
    can yield no flour;
    Even if it could,
    strangers would swallow it.

    When Ephraim made many altars to expiate sin,
    his altars became occasions of sin.
    Though I write for him my many ordinances,
    they are considered as a stranger’s.
    Though they offer sacrifice,
    immolate flesh and eat it,
    the LORD is not pleased with them.
    He shall still remember their guilt
    and punish their sins;
    they shall return to Egypt.

    Gospel Mt 9:32-38

    A demoniac who could not speak was brought to Jesus,
    and when the demon was driven out the mute man spoke.
    The crowds were amazed and said,
    “Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel.”
    But the Pharisees said,
    “He drives out demons by the prince of demons.”

    Jesus went around to all the towns and villages,
    teaching in their synagogues,
    proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom,
    and curing every disease and illness.
    At the sight of the crowds, his heart was moved with pity for them
    because they were troubled and abandoned,
    like sheep without a shepherd.
    Then he said to his disciples,
    “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;
    so ask the master of the harvest
    to send out laborers for his harvest.”

    What happened today?
    I realized I have been miscounting points, but it doesn't make much of a difference at the top. Numbers have been updated.

    France vs Belgium
    France are on their way to the finals. Not much else to say about that game. It did however, almost clinch a victory for the single user that picked the trio of France, Uruguay, Croatia. If England wins out and Belgium wins the 3rd place match, then the trio of Spain, England, Sweden will force a tiebreaker. France, Colombia, Croatia currently sits in 2nd place, but are threatened by the combos of France, Belgium, Mexico; France, Belgium, Switzerland; and the quartet of Brazil, Belgium, Croatia.

    What's up next?

    Croatia vs England
    Croatia are tough but they may be tired after playing lots of extra soccer in the last two matches. England has looked good, but I'm not convinced they look "raise the trophy" good. Let's see if they can convince me on Wednesday.

              An unintended consequence of Trump's trade war is coming for one of the industries that will be hit hardest, and it could give him a big win      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    soybean farmer

    • US soybean farmers are expected to be a major loser in President Donald Trump's trade war with China.
    • US soybean exports surged over the past two months because of distortions from Trump's trade battles with China.
    • This is likely to boost US second-quarter gross domestic product, helping to give Trump a big public-relations win on the economy. 

    US soybean farmers are expected to get whacked by President Donald Trump's trade war with China, but not before helping hand the president a potentially significant economic victory.

    While many farmers and experts expect the industry to take a significant hit because of the trade war, dramatic changes in soybean shipments ahead of the tariffs could help lift upcoming US gross-domestic-product numbers, giving Trump a big economic talking point.

    Soybeans were hit with a new tariff by the Chinese government last week as part of the retaliation for Trump's tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods. The decision to apply duties to soybeans was a big one — the crop is the largest US agricultural export, and China was the destination for $14.2 billion worth of US soybeans in 2016.

    But the move was a long time coming. China threatened to impose restrictions on soybeans as far back as March. This gave US soybean farmers an opportunity to rush the product out of the country before the trade war kicked off in earnest, but it also seriously shifted trade patterns for the crop.

    According to The Wall Street Journal, China began to shift its purchases away from US farmers and toward Brazilian soybeans in the spring. With China soaking up much of the Brazilian supply, other countries like Egypt, Thailand, and the Netherlands increased their purchases of US soybeans. This led to a surge in US exports, but also a steep drop in shipments to China that increased longer-term concerns.

    But for 2018's second quarter, the outlook for soybean farmers is solid. Based on data from Ian Shepherdson, the chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, soybean exports will clock their two best months since mid-2016 in May and June.

    In turn, the soybean mad dash is likely to provide a huge boost to second-quarter US GDP, Shepherdson said.

    "Weekly data show that soybean exports rose again in June, but we're then expecting to see a steep fall in July," Shepherdson wrote in a note to clients. "In the second quarter, though, we estimate that soybean exports will contribute some 0.6 percentage points to GDP growth, at an annualized rate."

    The Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank's GDP Now, a tracker used to predict quarterly GDP, predicts second-quarter GDP will hit 3.8% annualized growth.

    Screen Shot 2018 07 09 at 5.22.33 PM

    The sudden uptick in soybean exports mirrors the surge during the summer of 2016, when crop yields from South America — the typical soybean suppliers over those months — fell well short of expectations and allowed US farmers to step in. That quarter, the boosted trade component, mostly due to the soybean surge, added 0.83 percentage points to GDP.

    Trump has long set a target of 3% to 4% annual GDP growth for his administration. The soybean exports should provide a boost for one quarter, but the Trump administration hasn't been shy about pointing to single-quarter data to show that the country is meeting Trump's goals.

    A boost would come amid significant price pressure for soybean farmers. Soybean futures contracts have fallen to their lowest level since 2009, leaving many farmers scrambling.

    And the soybean support in second-quarter GDP data may not last long, according to Shepherdson, who said the economic boost from soybean exports "probably will reverse in full in the third quarter."

    The first estimate for third-quarter GDP is scheduled for release on October 26, 11 days before the 2018 midterm elections.

    The Inheritance West of the Jordan

    14 These are the inheritances that the people of Israel received in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar the priest and Joshua the son of Nun and the heads of the fathers' houses of the tribes of the people of Israel gave them to inherit. Their inheritance was by lot, just as the LORD had commanded by the hand of Moses for the nine and one-half tribes. For Moses had given an inheritance to the two and one-half tribes beyond the Jordan, but to the Levites he gave no inheritance among them. For the people of Joseph were two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim. And no portion was given to the Levites in the land, but only cities to dwell in, with their pasturelands for their livestock and their substance. The people of Israel did as the LORD commanded Moses; they allotted the land.

    Caleb's Request and Inheritance

    Then the people of Judah came to Joshua at Gilgal. And Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite said to him, “You know what the LORD said to Moses the man of God in Kadesh-barnea concerning you and me. I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh-barnea to spy out the land, and I brought him word again as it was in my heart. But my brothers who went up with me made the heart of the people melt; yet I wholly followed the LORD my God. And Moses swore on that day, saying, ‘Surely the land on which your foot has trodden shall be an inheritance for you and your children forever, because you have wholly followed the LORD my God.’ 10 And now, behold, the LORD has kept me alive, just as he said, these forty-five years since the time that the LORD spoke this word to Moses, while Israel walked in the wilderness. And now, behold, I am this day eighty-five years old. 11 I am still as strong today as I was in the day that Moses sent me; my strength now is as my strength was then, for war and for going and coming. 12 So now give me this hill country of which the LORD spoke on that day, for you heard on that day how the Anakim were there, with great fortified cities. It may be that the LORD will be with me, and I shall drive them out just as the LORD said.”

    13 Then Joshua blessed him, and he gave Hebron to Caleb the son of Jephunneh for an inheritance. 14 Therefore Hebron became the inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite to this day, because he wholly followed the LORD, the God of Israel. 15 Now the name of Hebron formerly was Kiriath-arba.1 (Arba2 was the greatest man among the Anakim.) And the land had rest from war.

    The Allotment for Judah

    15 The allotment for the tribe of the people of Judah according to their clans reached southward to the boundary of Edom, to the wilderness of Zin at the farthest south. And their south boundary ran from the end of the Salt Sea, from the bay that faces southward. It goes out southward of the ascent of Akrabbim, passes along to Zin, and goes up south of Kadesh-barnea, along by Hezron, up to Addar, turns about to Karka, passes along to Azmon, goes out by the Brook of Egypt, and comes to its end at the sea. This shall be your south boundary. And the east boundary is the Salt Sea, to the mouth of the Jordan. And the boundary on the north side runs from the bay of the sea at the mouth of the Jordan. And the boundary goes up to Beth-hoglah and passes along north of Beth-arabah. And the boundary goes up to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben. And the boundary goes up to Debir from the Valley of Achor, and so northward, turning toward Gilgal, which is opposite the ascent of Adummim, which is on the south side of the valley. And the boundary passes along to the waters of En-shemesh and ends at En-rogel. Then the boundary goes up by the Valley of the Son of Hinnom at the southern shoulder of the Jebusite (that is, Jerusalem). And the boundary goes up to the top of the mountain that lies over against the Valley of Hinnom, on the west, at the northern end of the Valley of Rephaim. Then the boundary extends from the top of the mountain to the spring of the waters of Nephtoah, and from there to the cities of Mount Ephron. Then the boundary bends around to Baalah (that is, Kiriath-jearim). 10 And the boundary circles west of Baalah to Mount Seir, passes along to the northern shoulder of Mount Jearim (that is, Chesalon), and goes down to Beth-shemesh and passes along by Timnah. 11 The boundary goes out to the shoulder of the hill north of Ekron, then the boundary bends around to Shikkeron and passes along to Mount Baalah and goes out to Jabneel. Then the boundary comes to an end at the sea. 12 And the west boundary was the Great Sea with its coastline. This is the boundary around the people of Judah according to their clans.

    13 According to the commandment of the LORD to Joshua, he gave to Caleb the son of Jephunneh a portion among the people of Judah, Kiriath-arba, that is, Hebron (Arba was the father of Anak). 14 And Caleb drove out from there the three sons of Anak, Sheshai and Ahiman and Talmai, the descendants of Anak. 15 And he went up from there against the inhabitants of Debir. Now the name of Debir formerly was Kiriath-sepher. 16 And Caleb said, “Whoever strikes Kiriath-sepher and captures it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter as wife.” 17 And Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, captured it. And he gave him Achsah his daughter as wife. 18 When she came to him, she urged him to ask her father for a field. And she got off her donkey, and Caleb said to her, “What do you want?” 19 She said to him, “Give me a blessing. Since you have given me the land of the Negeb, give me also springs of water.” And he gave her the upper springs and the lower springs.

    20 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the people of Judah according to their clans. 21 The cities belonging to the tribe of the people of Judah in the extreme south, toward the boundary of Edom, were Kabzeel, Eder, Jagur, 22 Kinah, Dimonah, Adadah, 23 Kedesh, Hazor, Ithnan, 24 Ziph, Telem, Bealoth, 25 Hazor-hadattah, Kerioth-hezron (that is, Hazor), 26 Amam, Shema, Moladah, 27 Hazar-gaddah, Heshmon, Beth-pelet, 28 Hazar-shual, Beersheba, Biziothiah, 29 Baalah, Iim, Ezem, 30 Eltolad, Chesil, Hormah, 31 Ziklag, Madmannah, Sansannah, 32 Lebaoth, Shilhim, Ain, and Rimmon: in all, twenty-nine cities with their villages.

    33 And in the lowland, Eshtaol, Zorah, Ashnah, 34 Zanoah, En-gannim, Tappuah, Enam, 35 Jarmuth, Adullam, Socoh, Azekah, 36 Shaaraim, Adithaim, Gederah, Gederothaim: fourteen cities with their villages.

    42 Libnah, Ether, Ashan, 43 Iphtah, Ashnah, Nezib, 44 Keilah, Achzib, and Mareshah: nine cities with their villages.

    45 Ekron, with its towns and its villages; 46 from Ekron to the sea, all that were by the side of Ashdod, with their villages.

    47 Ashdod, its towns and its villages; Gaza, its towns and its villages; to the Brook of Egypt, and the Great Sea with its coastline.

    48 And in the hill country, Shamir, Jattir, Socoh, 49 Dannah, Kiriath-sannah (that is, Debir), 50 Anab, Eshtemoh, Anim, 51 Goshen, Holon, and Giloh: eleven cities with their villages.

    52 Arab, Dumah, Eshan, 53 Janim, Beth-tappuah, Aphekah, 54 Humtah, Kiriath-arba (that is, Hebron), and Zior: nine cities with their villages.

    55 Maon, Carmel, Ziph, Juttah, 56 Jezreel, Jokdeam, Zanoah, 57 Kain, Gibeah, and Timnah: ten cities with their villages.

    58 Halhul, Beth-zur, Gedor, 59 Maarath, Beth-anoth, and Eltekon: six cities with their villages.

    Put Not Your Trust in Princes

    146   Praise the LORD!
      Praise the LORD, O my soul!
      I will praise the LORD as long as I live;
        I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
      Put not your trust in princes,
        in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
      When his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
        on that very day his plans perish.
      Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
        whose hope is in the LORD his God,
      who made heaven and earth,
        the sea, and all that is in them,
      who keeps faith forever;
        who executes justice for the oppressed,
        who gives food to the hungry.
      The LORD sets the prisoners free;
        the LORD opens the eyes of the blind.
      The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down;
        the LORD loves the righteous.
      The LORD watches over the sojourners;
        he upholds the widow and the fatherless,
        but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.
    10   The LORD will reign forever,
        your God, O Zion, to all generations.
      Praise the LORD!

    He Heals the Brokenhearted

    147   Praise the LORD!
      For it is good to sing praises to our God;
        for it is pleasant,1 and a song of praise is fitting.
      The LORD builds up Jerusalem;
        he gathers the outcasts of Israel.
      He heals the brokenhearted
        and binds up their wounds.
      He determines the number of the stars;
        he gives to all of them their names.
      Great is our Lord, and abundant in power;
        his understanding is beyond measure.
      The LORD lifts up the humble;2
        he casts the wicked to the ground.
      Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;
        make melody to our God on the lyre!
      He covers the heavens with clouds;
        he prepares rain for the earth;
        he makes grass grow on the hills.
      He gives to the beasts their food,
        and to the young ravens that cry.
    10   His delight is not in the strength of the horse,
        nor his pleasure in the legs of a man,
    11   but the LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him,
        in those who hope in his steadfast love.
    12   Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem!
        Praise your God, O Zion!
    13   For he strengthens the bars of your gates;
        he blesses your children within you.
    14   He makes peace in your borders;
        he fills you with the finest of the wheat.
    15   He sends out his command to the earth;
        his word runs swiftly.
    16   He gives snow like wool;
        he scatters frost like ashes.
    17   He hurls down his crystals of ice like crumbs;
        who can stand before his cold?
    18   He sends out his word, and melts them;
        he makes his wind blow and the waters flow.
    19   He declares his word to Jacob,
        his statutes and rules3 to Israel.
    20   He has not dealt thus with any other nation;
        they do not know his rules.4
      Praise the LORD!

    Jeremiah 7 (Listen)

    Evil in the Land

    The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD: “Stand in the gate of the LORD's house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the LORD, all you men of Judah who enter these gates to worship the LORD. Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Amend your ways and your deeds, and I will let you dwell in this place. Do not trust in these deceptive words: ‘This is the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD.’

    “For if you truly amend your ways and your deeds, if you truly execute justice one with another, if you do not oppress the sojourner, the fatherless, or the widow, or shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not go after other gods to your own harm, then I will let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave of old to your fathers forever.

    “Behold, you trust in deceptive words to no avail. Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, make offerings to Baal, and go after other gods that you have not known, 10 and then come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, ‘We are delivered!’—only to go on doing all these abominations? 11 Has this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, I myself have seen it, declares the LORD. 12 Go now to my place that was in Shiloh, where I made my name dwell at first, and see what I did to it because of the evil of my people Israel. 13 And now, because you have done all these things, declares the LORD, and when I spoke to you persistently you did not listen, and when I called you, you did not answer, 14 therefore I will do to the house that is called by my name, and in which you trust, and to the place that I gave to you and to your fathers, as I did to Shiloh. 15 And I will cast you out of my sight, as I cast out all your kinsmen, all the offspring of Ephraim.

    16 “As for you, do not pray for this people, or lift up a cry or prayer for them, and do not intercede with me, for I will not hear you. 17 Do you not see what they are doing in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem? 18 The children gather wood, the fathers kindle fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven. And they pour out drink offerings to other gods, to provoke me to anger. 19 Is it I whom they provoke? declares the LORD. Is it not themselves, to their own shame? 20 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, my anger and my wrath will be poured out on this place, upon man and beast, upon the trees of the field and the fruit of the ground; it will burn and not be quenched.”

    21 Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: “Add your burnt offerings to your sacrifices, and eat the flesh. 22 For in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, I did not speak to your fathers or command them concerning burnt offerings and sacrifices. 23 But this command I gave them: ‘Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people. And walk in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you.’ 24 But they did not obey or incline their ear, but walked in their own counsels and the stubbornness of their evil hearts, and went backward and not forward. 25 From the day that your fathers came out of the land of Egypt to this day, I have persistently sent all my servants the prophets to them, day after day. 26 Yet they did not listen to me or incline their ear, but stiffened their neck. They did worse than their fathers.

    27 “So you shall speak all these words to them, but they will not listen to you. You shall call to them, but they will not answer you. 28 And you shall say to them, ‘This is the nation that did not obey the voice of the LORD their God, and did not accept discipline; truth has perished; it is cut off from their lips.

    29   “‘Cut off your hair and cast it away;
        raise a lamentation on the bare heights,
      for the LORD has rejected and forsaken
        the generation of his wrath.’

    The Valley of Slaughter

    30 “For the sons of Judah have done evil in my sight, declares the LORD. They have set their detestable things in the house that is called by my name, to defile it. 31 And they have built the high places of Topheth, which is in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, which I did not command, nor did it come into my mind. 32 Therefore, behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when it will no more be called Topheth, or the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter; for they will bury in Topheth, because there is no room elsewhere. 33 And the dead bodies of this people will be food for the birds of the air, and for the beasts of the earth, and none will frighten them away. 34 And I will silence in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, for the land shall become a waste.

    Matthew 21 (Listen)

    The Triumphal Entry

    21 Now when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will send them at once.” This took place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, saying,

      “Say to the daughter of Zion,
      ‘Behold, your king is coming to you,
        humble, and mounted on a donkey,
        on a colt,1 the foal of a beast of burden.’”

    The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and he sat on them. Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” 10 And when he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up, saying, “Who is this?” 11 And the crowds said, “This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee.”

    Jesus Cleanses the Temple

    12 And Jesus entered the temple2 and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. 13 He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.”

    14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple, and he healed them. 15 But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying out in the temple, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant, 16 and they said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes; have you never read,

      “‘Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babies
        you have prepared praise’?”

    17 And leaving them, he went out of the city to Bethany and lodged there.

    Jesus Curses the Fig Tree

    18 In the morning, as he was returning to the city, he became hungry. 19 And seeing a fig tree by the wayside, he went to it and found nothing on it but only leaves. And he said to it, “May no fruit ever come from you again!” And the fig tree withered at once.

    20 When the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, “How did the fig tree wither at once?” 21 And Jesus answered them, “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen. 22 And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”

    The Authority of Jesus Challenged

    23 And when he entered the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came up to him as he was teaching, and said, “By what authority are you doing these things, and who gave you this authority?” 24 Jesus answered them, “I also will ask you one question, and if you tell me the answer, then I also will tell you by what authority I do these things. 25 The baptism of John, from where did it come? From heaven or from man?” And they discussed it among themselves, saying, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ he will say to us, ‘Why then did you not believe him?’ 26 But if we say, ‘From man,’ we are afraid of the crowd, for they all hold that John was a prophet.” 27 So they answered Jesus, “We do not know.” And he said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.

    The Parable of the Two Sons

    28 “What do you think? A man had two sons. And he went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work in the vineyard today.’ 29 And he answered, ‘I will not,’ but afterward he changed his mind and went. 30 And he went to the other son and said the same. And he answered, ‘I go, sir,’ but did not go. 31 Which of the two did the will of his father?” They said, “The first.” Jesus said to them, “Truly, I say to you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes go into the kingdom of God before you. 32 For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes believed him. And even when you saw it, you did not afterward change your minds and believe him.

    The Parable of the Tenants

    33 “Hear another parable. There was a master of a house who planted a vineyard and put a fence around it and dug a winepress in it and built a tower and leased it to tenants, and went into another country. 34 When the season for fruit drew near, he sent his servants3 to the tenants to get his fruit. 35 And the tenants took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stoned another. 36 Again he sent other servants, more than the first. And they did the same to them. 37 Finally he sent his son to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’ 38 But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and have his inheritance.’ 39 And they took him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. 40 When therefore the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?” 41 They said to him, “He will put those wretches to a miserable death and let out the vineyard to other tenants who will give him the fruits in their seasons.”

    42 Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:

      “‘The stone that the builders rejected
        has become the cornerstone;4
      this was the Lord's doing,
        and it is marvelous in our eyes’?

    43 Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruits. 44 And the one who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; and when it falls on anyone, it will crush him.”5

    45 When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they perceived that he was speaking about them. 46 And although they were seeking to arrest him, they feared the crowds, because they held him to be a prophet.

    Australian Scientists Wipe Out 80% of Disease-Carrying Mosquitoes The experiment was conducted in trial locations across north Queensland. It targeted Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, which spread deadly diseases such as dengue fever and Zika. Researchers bred almost 20 million mosquitoes, infecting males with bacteria that made them sterile. They released over three million of them in three towns on the Cassowary Coast. The sterile male mosquitoes didn't bite or spread disease. When they mated with wild females, the resulting eggs didn't hatch, and the population crashed. The successful experiment offers a potential new solution against diseases which infect millions every year.

    Medical X-ray scans have long been stuck in the black-and-white, silent-movie era. Sure, the contrast helps doctors spot breaks and fractures in bones, but more detail could help pinpoint other problems. Now, a company from New Zealand has developed a bioimaging scanner that can produce full color, three dimensional images of bones, lipids, and soft tissue, thanks to a sensor chip developed at CERN for use in the Large Hadron Collider.

    PMW: Fatah to US: “We don’t want your flour, your wheat, or your aid”
    At a Fatah demonstration earlier this month, Abbas' deputy chairman of Fatah, Mahmoud Al-Aloul, announced that Palestinians don't want US aid, because US is "forming an alliance" with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, "the Israeli enemy":

    Fatah Deputy Chairman and Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul: "Mahmoud Abbas has told him [Trump], and we are telling him, that America is not fit to be a sponsor of peace... This American Trump is forming an alliance with [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, the Israeli enemy, who is sowing havoc and destruction over the land by expropriation and building settlements... We want freedom. We want independence. We want an end to the occupation. We don't want your flour, your wheat, or your aid." [Official PA TV, July 2, 2018]

    Al-Aloul's statement rejecting US aid follows the passing of the Taylor Force Act in the US, in March 2018, which cuts almost all funding to the PA if it continues paying salaries to terrorist prisoners and allowances to families of so-called "Martyrs." The law was named after US citizen Taylor Force who was murdered by a Palestinian terrorist in Tel Aviv on March 8, 2016.

    Al-Aloul's comments also follow the passing of a new Israeli law to deduct the amount of money the PA pays imprisoned terrorists and families of "Martyrs" from the tax money Israel collects for the PA, which was passed by the Israeli Parliament on July 2, 2018.
    PMW: PA leader Nabil Shaath: Australia is “worthy of being spat on”
    PA Chairman Abbas’ advisor Nabil Shaath: "This filthy talk of ‘the criminals’ in connection with our Martyrs and prisoners – while they are our heroes, the heroes of self-sacrifice and the candles of freedom. They cannot be compared to the Israeli criminals in Israel’s prisons... Australia’s decision [to stop] transferring $10 million angered me greatly... It transferred [the aid to the UN]... so that it would not serve for payment of the salaries of the [prisoners and Martyrs’] families. In other words, the truth is they are worthy of being spat on. You [Australians] are the servants of the US… I don’t want your 10 million, I don’t want to chase after them." [Official PA TV, Topic of the Day, July 3, 2018] Nabil Shaath is PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor on Foreign Affairs and International Relations Australia cuts direct aid to the PA - Australia announced on July 2, 2018, that it is ceasing its direct aid to the PA, and will transfer aid through the UN. Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop explained that Australia unsuccessfully sought confirmation from the PA that the aid was not going to pay terrorists. Bishop added: "Any assistance provided by the PLO to those convicted of politically motivated violence is an affront to Australian values and undermines the prospect of meaningful peace between Israel and the Palestinians." PMW has led the exposure of the salaries paid by the PA to terrorists and their families.


    Father of American Victim of Palestinian Terror Calls New US, Israeli Laws Penalizing PA ‘a Good Beginning’
    The recent passage of laws in both the US and Israel penalizing the Palestinian Authority (PA) over its payments to terrorists and their families marked “a good beginning, but there is much more to be done,” the father of an American military veteran who was killed in a stabbing attack in Tel Aviv two years ago told The Algemeiner on Monday.

    Stuart Force, the father of the late Taylor Force, traveled to Israel to attend last week’s Knesset vote on a bill modeled on a US law — named after his West Point graduate son — that was approved by Congress and signed by President Donald Trump in March limiting American aid to the PA.

    “Watching the legislation’s passage in the Knesset was a very emotional and special time for me,” Force said. “I feel that the resolve shown by both countries to address this part of the war on terror will provide a stimulus for nations worldwide to look at where their humanitarian aid actually goes.”

    “If it cannot be shown that the intended recipients of our assistance are receiving it, then it should be withheld until it can,” he continued. “Something is terribly wrong when the leaders of terrorism are living like wealthy warlords, with their ‘subjects’ having no hope for a better future.”



    JCPA: Economics Won’t Help. The Palestinians Will Continue with Terror Attacks
    In any case, the chance that economic temptations will lead to a change in Palestinian national goals is very slight as long as the Palestinian system is not led by a political movement that gives priority to the welfare of its citizens. That movement must recognize that to provide for their economic needs, it must end its commitment to the struggle against Zionism, which is translated as yielding the “Right of Return” and deciding to forego the establishment of a Palestinian state in all of mandatory Palestine.

    The approach of the U.S. administration criticizes the Palestinians and Hamas, in particular, for “not acting according to the needs of the Palestinian people.” This reaction indicates a lack of understanding for Palestinian priorities and superimposes upon them a Western order of priorities, which sees in the pursuit of happiness and prosperity as all people’s solitary goal.

    The Palestinians explain to the world that they have a different order of priorities, including paying salaries to terrorists, “Return Marches,” the destruction of a critical truck crossing for goods, and the right to forgo both human life and prosperity. However, it appears that the Americans, Europeans, and many Israelis are not getting these messages. They continue to believe that economic considerations can lead the Palestinians to change their anti-peace policies.

    We must not diminish the importance of investing in the advancement of the Palestinian economy and economic cooperation with them. These are based on ethical motives – from the desire to bring economic prosperity to our neighbors to advancing familiarity between both peoples. We must hope that in the end this will motivate the Palestinian to change their order of priorities.
    IDF stops boat seeking to break Gaza blockade
    The Israeli Navy on Tuesday apprehended a Gazan boat with approximately eight people on board that attempted to breach the legal naval blockade. The apprehension took place without incident.

    After the boat and the Gazans on board are searched, the boat will be towed to the Israeli Navy base in Ashdod.

    The IDF assigned medical personnel to treat those on board who requirws medical assistance.

    This is the second time in the past two months that the Hamas terror organization has attempted to violate the legal naval blockade and has paid Gazan civilians to participate.

    The IDF stated that the naval blockade is a "necessary and legal security measure that has been recognized repeatedly by the world and the UN as important to the security of the State of Israel and its maritime borders that protect Israeli civilians in the face of terror and smuggling of weapons."
    Exclusive: Islamic cyber terrorists trying to target infrastructure
    Though they have not yet succeeded, Islamic cyber terrorists are increasing their efforts to carry out cyberattacks against Western countries infrastructure.

    This is one of the concerning conclusions of a report obtained exclusively by The Jerusalem Post.

    The report was issued by the IDC Herzliya International Institute for Counter-Terrorism’s (ICT) cyberdesk, with input from ICT deputy director Dr. Eitan Azani and cyberdesk coordinator Nadine Liv.

    To date, most cyberterror attacks have consisted of defacing target websites and posting embarrassing messages.

    But the report discussed “the possibility of terrorist organizations acquiring offensive capabilities on the Internet, hiring hackers for this purpose, or receiving assistance from terror- sponsoring countries” as a serious future danger.

    Further, it said that, “the monitoring of the accounts of IS [Islamic State]-supporting hackers indicates that there is a desire to develop these offensive capabilities.”
    Iran’s Two-Front Strategy
    The Assad regime's current offensive in southern Syria has been mainly in the eastern part of Daraa province, down to the Jordanian border. The push toward the west - Quneitra and the Golan - carries the risk of Israeli action.

    Once the Syrian military campaign finds its way to Israel's border, Iran will as well - whether immediately or down the road makes little difference.

    All the chatter about a deal with Russia notwithstanding, there is a need for Israel to intensify its targeting of Iran's infrastructure, personnel, and logistical lines in Syria to deter the Iranians from moving against Israel on the Golan.

    "We have just one option," Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Shimon Shapira, a senior researcher of Hizbullah and Iran at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, told me.

    "And that is to act with force, overtly and covertly, against the Iranian presence in Syria. Consenting to or accepting the Iranian presence, be it direct or indirect, in the end will lead to a war with Iran in Syria and in Lebanon."

    As Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu put it recently, "if there needs to be" conflict with Iran, "it is better now than later."
    Report: Obama 'shocked' by settlement expansion
    A series of maps of Judea and Samaria, focusing on the placement of Jewish communities and Israeli military facilities in the area, provoked a dramatic change in the Obama administration’s policies vis-à-vis Israel, a report by The New Yorker claims.

    According to the report Monday, a presentation by then-Secretary of State John Kerry to President Barack Obama in the waning days of the administration ‘shocked’ the president into taking a more aggressive stance towards Israel, withholding America’s veto on a United Nations Security Council resolution critical of Israeli policies in Judea and Samaria.

    The Obama administration, like its predecessors, had in the past backed a final status settlement negotiated by Israel and the Palestinian Authority and opposed unilateral actions regarding core final status issues. In this vein, the US had traditionally used its veto power on the Security Council to block resolutions directed against Israel.

    In December 2016, however, the Obama administration permitted UNSC Resolution 2334 to pass – a measure which demanded Israel unilaterally freeze all construction in not only Judea and Samaria, but eastern Jerusalem as well.

    The decision to abandon Israel at the Security Council – a significant departure from traditional US policy – after the president was presented with a series of maps collected at the behest of a senior State Department official, Frank Lowenstein.

    The collection of maps, assembled in 2015 by Lowenstein and updated by the State Department in 2016, was presented to Obama and key advisers by Secretary of State John Kerry during a 2016 Oval Office meeting.
    New Zealand “got it wrong” over 2334
    National Party leader, Simon Bridges, has acknowledged that New Zealand “got it wrong” by co-sponsoring United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 alongside Malaysia, Senegal, and Venezuela.

    Though New Zealand First leader, Winston Peters, challenged the process at the time – that the decision was not put to cabinet – Mr Bridges stated that he thought cabinet “would have made a different decision” than Foreign Minister Murray McCully did.

    This is an important acknowledgement – especially after Bill English failed to answer questions about the controversial resolution and claimed that the decision actually didn’t need to go to cabinet.

    The comments by Mr Bridges were made during question time at a Hastings public meeting on Friday 29 June, 2018, and are online. Pastor Nigel Woodley asked

    “In a future National govt led by you, what do you propose to do to ensure that a much more even-handed, balanced, and fair foreign policy towards the State of Israel is enacted. Because at the moment the foreign policy is very much tipped in favour of the Palestinians at the expense of both truth and justice.” – Pastor Nigel Woodley

    The response of Mr Bridges is transcribed below the video. He made three important comments that need to be highlighted.

    1. “I get that question or similar at most meetings”
    This observation shows how the actions of Minister McCully were out of step with the wishes of the people. The Israel Institute of New Zealand 2017 poll showed that more than half of all Kiwis support Israel and only about one quarter thought the government was right to co-sponsor the resolution. The thousands of New Zealanders who protested, signed letters, and expressed their disappointment at the time are clearly still sending the same message.

    2. “We got it wrong on that UN resolution [2234]”
    This acknowledgment is some relief to the majority of New Zealanders and is an important step from Mr Bridges. However, the resolution is not “history” now and nor is it “academic”, as Rt Hon Mr Peters has claimed. Unfortunately, UN resolutions build upon each other and 2334 was referenced in the disproportionate number of anti-Israel resolutions that New Zealand continued to support in 2017, and in the recent resolution condemning Israel for “disproportionate and indiscriminate force” with regard to the Gaza riots – a resolution that New Zealand also supported, despite it not mentioning Hamas. If New Zealand is to act on the rhetoric, then the voting pattern at the UN must change to become more in line with our traditional allies on the side of truth, justice, and fairness.
    What does Boris Johnson's resignation mean for UK-Israel relations?
    Former British foreign minister Boris Johnson's resignation on Monday plunged Prime Minister Theresa May's turbulent government into even more trouble less than a day after former Brexit Secretary David Davis quit the government.

    Johnson’s resignation letter slammed May's Brexit negotiation strategy, stating that the Brexit "dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt."

    May moved quickly to appoint Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt as the UK's new foreign secretary, ushering in a new and less flamboyant era at the British Foreign Office.

    Israeli Ambassador to the UK Mark Regev was quick to welcome Johnson's foreign secretary replacement, expressing hope that relations between the two countries will continue to go from strength to strength.

    "Mazal tov to Jeremy Hunt on his appointment as Foreign Secretary. Looking forward to further strengthening the Israel-UK partnership," wrote the Israeli envoy on Twitter on Monday evening.

    Although public statements made by Hunt to date regarding Israel are scarce, he dedicates much of his website's foreign policy section to the Middle East where his opinions regarding the Israeli-Arab conflict mirror those of the Conservative Party in general.

    There Hunt expresses his desire to promote business ties with Israel, and states his strong opposition to the BDS movement. But he also highlights his concerns regarding the demolition of Palestinian villages and the detention of Palestinian children by Israeli authorities.

    Hunt reiterates his government's support for a two-state solution, and states that he was "very disappointed by the announcement of the US's intention to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem."
    France Keeps Blackening Israel
    Relations between France and Israel have been ambivalent and complex for decades. Among the most prominent are those where the French government sets out to blacken Israel. President Emmanuel Macron is seemingly a new type of Frenchman. He reached the presidency without having risen through the ranks of an existing political party. He is a suave, intelligent politician with an excellent education, an international outlook, many ideas, and good public relations.

    However, analysis has to concentrate on facts and not packaging. A good point of departure are the French reactions to the recent Gaza border violence. When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Macron in Paris in April, the French president told him that the relocation of the US Embassy to Jerusalem “led to people dying and did not advance peace.” With this transparently manipulative statement Macron showed his skills in distorting the truth in a few words. What provoked the violence was the terror organization Hamas’ initiative to send civilians to the border and mix terrorists among them. Among the more than 115 Gazans killed by Israel, more than half were confirmed terrorists. That many of those killed were terrorists was confirmed by Hamas itself.

    France also supported an UN Security Council resolution which called for protective measures for Palestinians, but didn’t mention Hamas. Deputy Israeli Minister Michael Oren summarized it in a tweet: “Shame on France for supporting it. French government cannot say it’s against anti-Semitism and vote for this anti-Semitic resolution.”
    The IDF’s response to ongoing Hamas terror attacks
    Today, Monday July 9, the Kerem Shalom Crossing will now only be open to humanitarian aid, including food and medicine that will be approved on an individual basis by COGAT. Exports and marketing of goods will no longer take place at the Kerem Shalom Crossing.

    This is in light of the ongoing arson and additional terror attacks at the hands of the terror organization, Hamas. This includes infiltration into Israel from the Gaza Strip, terror tunnels discovered leading into Israel from the Gaza Strip, including two near the Kerem Shalom Crossing, and violent riots along the security border. In addition to putting the lives of Israeli civilians at risk and breaching Israel’s sovereignty, Hamas also simultaneously exploits and endangers Gaza residents.

    Additionally, the expansion of the designated fishing zone in the Gaza Strip ends today, Monday July 9. For the past three months during the fishing season, the extension increased from six to nine nautical miles. The fishing zone will be returned to six nautical miles today.

    This is in response not only to the most recent terror attempts by Hamas, but also in addition to the discovery that took place on June 3 of a terror tunnel located within a Hamas military post that exited to the sea. As well, on May 29th, the Israeli Navy apprehended a Palestinian boat with approximately 17 Palestinians that attempted to breach the legal naval blockade.

    The State of Israel aspires and acts to improve the living conditions of civilians in the Gaza Strip. However, the IDF has decided to take these measures due to the recent situation in which the Hamas terror organization is exploiting Gazan residents and launching arson and explosive balloons and kites towards the Israeli communities adjacent to the Gaza Strip. The current situation doesn’t allow the residents of southern Israel to safely maintain their daily routine. Should these severe conditions continue, IDF measures will persist and intensify.
    Kite, balloon terrorism continues scorching Israel's land
    More than 100 days have passed since the kite and balloon terrorism began. So far, it has resulted in 678 fires in farmlands and wooded areas in Israeli communities on the Gaza border community, with 9,160 dunams (2,260 acres) of mostly natural grove consumed.

    In addition, 6,000 dunams (1,500 acres) of agricultural produce and thousands of dunams (acres) of open fields were burned to the ground.

    The Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael (KKL) alone has lost 15,100 dunams (37,000 acres) of land, not including the Gaza border communities' lands that were scorched.

    Firefighters, community security coordinators, and KKL teams worked tirelessly to put out 33 fires across the Eshkol, Sdot Negev and Hof Ashkelon regional councils on Monday. The firefighters managed to gain control of most of the blazes within minutes, except for the fire in Kibbutz Gvar'am, which took the crews a longer time to overcome.

    Despite the IDF's announcement that a high-tech solution has been found to eliminate the incendiary balloons threat—in the form of detection and interception drones— fields are still being burned every day and the threat posed by the balloons is only increasing.

    The IDF is operating a system able to detect and track the balloons. However, they are still not being intercepted while in the air.
    Analysis: Why close the Kerem Shalom Gaza border crossing now?
    So there are a few options. It is possible to threaten Hamas, which both Liberman and Netanyahu have done repeatedly since the wave of kite arson began. But that has not succeeded in getting the terrorist organization to stop setting fire to the Israeli fields.

    It is also possible, as both the prime minister and defense minister have done, to stress upon occasion that the real strategic danger to the country – the problem that needs immediate and urgent attention – is Iran’s entrenchment in Syria.

    But the public pressure has built nonetheless, and Netanyahu needs to show that not only is Israel not impotent against what seems like a primitive threat, but can also apply pressure on Hamas in return.

    Why now? Perhaps because Israel thought, in vain, that its warnings and threats against Hamas would do the trick. Perhaps because they wanted to give Egyptian mediators a chance to persuade Hamas to give up this type of warfare. Perhaps because there was hope the IDF would come up with some kind of technological solution to the problem.

    But when none of that came to pass, Netanyahu and Liberman – according to this face-value reading of the situation – decided to turn up the heat, even at the risk of bringing down international condemnation on Israel, and even if it means making the extremely difficult lives of Gaza’s residents under Hamas even more difficult.

    Something, Netanyahu and Liberman surely believe, needs to be done.
    Hamas: We infiltrated Israel and collected information
    For years, Hamas has been complaining that the Israeli and Egyptian blockade on the Gaza Strip, as well as sanctions imposed by the Palestinian Authority against the two million residents living there, have created a “humanitarian and economic crisis” in the coastal enclave.

    But now that some countries and international parties – including the US, Israel and the United Nations – have come up with a number of initiatives to improve living conditions in the Gaza Strip, Hamas does not seem to know what to do.

    Here’s the dilemma Hamas is facing: On the one hand, if Hamas accepts these initiatives, its rivals – first and foremost the ruling Fatah faction – will accuse it of “selling out to Israel and the US,” and giving up Palestinian national rights in return for economic projects and humanitarian aid.

    On the other hand, rejecting proposals to improve the living conditions its constituents could aggravate the situation and possibly prompt desperate Palestinians to revolt against the Hamas regime.

    Some of the initiatives sound very tempting, to a point where it’s hard to see how Hamas can say no to a seaport in Cyprus or projects to create job opportunities to solve the serious problem of unemployment in the Gaza Strip.

    Hamas has nothing to lose by allowing Western parties to establish an industrial zone in the Gaza Strip that would provide thousand of jobs to Palestinians. In fact, such projects benefit Hamas because they exempt it from its responsibilities – as the de facto government in the Gaza Strip – toward its people.

    This is why Hamas leaders and officials appear to be divided over the various initiatives that are being proposed by Israel, the US and the UN.
    U.N.: Israel’s ban on commercial goods for Gaza could escalate conflict
    The United Nations said it was concerned Israel’s decision to halt the flow of commercial goods into the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom crossing could escalate its conflict with Hamas.

    “Everyone must step back from the trajectory of confrontation and escalation,” UN Special Coordinator to the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov said on Tuesday.

    He spoke in response to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to issue the harshest restrictions on Gaza’s main commercial crossing since the 2014 war with Hamas.

    As of Tuesday morning only humanitarian supplies, such as food, medicine and fuel could enter the strip.

    Israel’s decision to impose severe economic sanctions on Gaza comes fours months after Hamas and Islamic militants in Gaza have launched flaming kites into southern Israel that has scorched large swaths of fields along the southern border.

    It also comes in the midst of a major US push to put in place an economic package that would ease life for the two million Palestinians in Gaza, that are also suffering from Palestinian economic sanctions and living on four hours of fuel a day.

    “I am concerned by the consequences of Israel’s decision to temporarily suspend imports and exports with the exception of basic humanitarian supplies through the Kerem Shalom crossing,” Mladenov said on Tuesday.
    Liberman in Golan: IDF will act against Iranian presence in Syria
    Israel will not allow Iran to entrench itself in Syria, which would give it the ability to launch attacks on Israeli territory, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman warned Tuesday during a tour of the Golan Heights with senior IDF officers.

    "The Iranian presence in Syria is unreasonable, and we are not prepared to accept an Iranian presence in Syria anywhere, and as you have heard more than once, we will act against any Iranian consolidation in Syria,” the defense minister said.

    “The moment we identify an Iranian presence, we will act,” Liberman added, warning that there is no difference between a withdrawal of Iranian troops to 40 or 80 kilometers from Israel’s border.

    According to Liberman, Israel has “identified elements” belonging to Iran and its Shiite proxy militias who “under the auspices of the regime” are trying to establish themselves on the Golan Heights.

    “This effort to establish a terrorist infrastructure under the auspices of the regime, as far as we are concerned, is unacceptable and we will act with force against any terrorist infrastructure that we will see and identify here in the region,” Liberman warned.
    Female terrorist who mistakenly stabbed Arab sentenced
    A Jerusalem court sentenced a female Arab terrorist to 10 years in prison on Monday, after she was found guilty of a stabbing attack near the Old City of Jerusalem last summer.

    The terrorist, 31-year-old Fadwa Nazih Hamadeh, attacked a haredi man returning from morning prayers in the Old City of Jerusalem on Saturday, August 12th.

    As the haredi man left the Old City via the Damascus Gate, Hamadeh lunged at him with a knife. In video footage taken from a security camera in the area, Hamadeh’s would-be victim can be seen dodging the attack and fleeing the scene.

    After she failed to injure her first target, Hamadeh turned her sights on another man, stabbing him in the shoulder.

    The victim was a 31-year-old Arab man Hamadeh had mistakenly thought was an Israeli Jew.

    A resident of Jerusalem’s Sur Baher neighborhood, Hamadeh is married and has five children, ranging in age from 8 to one-and-a-half.
    Overnight: Shooting attack in Beit El
    A shooting attack took place in the town of Beit El in the Binyamin region overnight Monday. No injuries were reported.

    Several bullet casings were found at the scene. Troops are searching the area.

    Meanwhile, IDF soldiers operating in Palestinian Authority-assigned areas of Judea and Samaria detained overnight Tuesday four wanted persons suspected of involvement in terrorist activities, popular terror and violent disturbances against civilians and security forces.

    The suspects were taken for questioning.

    As well, during a search for weapons in the PA city of Qalqiliya, IDF troops seized an M16 assault rifle, which was transferred to security agencies.
    Israeli Border Police Soldiers Save Life of Palestinian Baby in Hebron
    Israeli Border Police soldiers stationed at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron saved the life of a nine-month-old Palestinian boy on Sunday, the Hebrew news site Walla reported.

    The soldiers heard shouts coming from a nearby home and when they arrived they found an unconscious baby surrounded by distressed family members who were trying to resuscitate him.

    The baby was not breathing and his face had turned blue. The soldiers took over the effort to revive him, and a Border Police medic who was called to the scene succeeded in getting him breathing again.

    Watch an Israel Police video of the medic treating the baby below:


    Khaled Abu Toameh: Hamas divided: The Gaza Strip rulers' humanitarian aid dilemma
    The Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of terror group Hamas, published what it called "new details" about the attack on Zikim Beach on July 8, 2014.

    Hamas naval commandos landed at the Zikim beach at the beginning of Operation Protective Edge, where they were located and eliminated by an IDF combined force 40 minutes after infiltration into Israeli territory.

    According Hamas’ version, the Zikim operation included two stages. The first stage was the observation and gathering of information about IDF forces in the area of ​​Zikim Beach and their command headquarters. That mission was carried out by Hamas naval force operatives who infiltrated Israeli territory.

    The second stage was the implementation of the attack, that began with the departure of Hamas naval force operatives by diving and swimming towards the target. The force split in two. The first force landed outside and began to advance toward the command headquarters. After about 45 minutes, another force joined them and updated Hamas command about developments and asked for further directions.
    Syrians Flee Towards the Hospitals of ‘Enemy’ Israel
    The founder of the Good Neighbor project, Lt. Col. (res.) Marco Moreno, explains that “refugees are not expected to seek shelter from us. We have always managed aid as a military operation with caution and attention, knowing that our soldiers are saving and helping them while risking our lives. We enter at night in a country at war against us. We can expect anything, and we know that. But we want to save them as human beings. We passionately help children; when they come with their families here and there along the fence, the population collects toys, clothes, funds, special food, diapers … at the beginning, there was a lot of suspicion, but then they understood.”

    “Yes, we certainly have an explicit interest,” he added. “When the operation started, we told them: ‘We will help you beyond the border and take care of you, but don’t allow your terrorists to come and hurt us.’ What simply started out as the right thing to do has transformed into something beautiful.”

    Lt.-Col. Tomer Koller, a medical officer in the Bashan division of the Golan, points to the colored tents in the wind from the Hazaka outlook post. Inside, they are packed with people in need.

    For Israel, it is impossible to think of hosting them. The country is small, and these refugees are particularly problematic; they vary from newborn babies to ISIS terrorists who hate Jews. “Our policy is to help them,” said Koller. “We feed them, we take care of them as much as possible … and then they have their reality at home.”

    Their home is in flames. We know it; we see the frightful wounds on the bodies of Syrians cured by Israelis in the Galilee. Israel cares for Syrians with its incredible therapeutic power and good will, but it can’t bring them home. In that respect, the best of human intentions and common sense sometimes clash. The right choice, however, is that man remains a friend of his fellow man, at his best, even in war. That’s what Israel believes.
    Iran Vows to Sell as Much Oil as It Can in Face of US Sanctions
    Iran’s vice president acknowledged on Tuesday that US sanctions would hurt the economy, but promised to “sell as much oil as we can” and protect banking.

    Eshaq Jahangiri said Washington was trying to stop Iran’s petrochemical, steel and copper exports. “America seeks to reduce Iran’s oil sales, our vital source of income, to zero,” he said, according to Fars news agency.

    “It would be a mistake to think the US economic war against Iran will have no impact,” Jahangiri added.

    President Donald Trump said in May he would pull the United States out of an international accord under which Tehran had agreed to limit its nuclear development in exchange for sanctions relief.

    Trump said he would reintroduce sanctions and Washington later told countries they must stop buying Iran’s oil from Nov. 4 or face financial consequences.

    On Tuesday, the US ambassador to Germany also called on Berlin to block an Iranian bid to withdraw large sums of cash from bank accounts in Germany.

    Jahangiri said Iran’s foreign ministry and the central bank have taken measures to facilitate Iran’s banking operations despite the US sanctions. He did not elaborate.
    U.S. Seeks to Thwart Iran Flying Millions in Cash Out of Germany
    Top Trump administration officials are working to stop Germany from allowing Iran to fly more than $350 million in cash out of the country and back to Tehran as part of a bid by the Iranian regime to restock its coffers ahead of a major financial crackdown by America, according to conversations with senior U.S. diplomats and officials on Capital Hill.

    The Trump administration is already working to stop the German government from allowing this transfer following weekend reports that Iran is poised to fly around 300 million Euros out of the country as part of an ongoing scheme to skirt tough new U.S. economic sanctions, which were put back into effect after President Donald Trump decided to abandon the landmark nuclear deal.

    "The mullahs are worried that they will run out of cash," according to a report in Germany's Bild news site. "Iran's justification for their plan says that they need the money ‘to pass it on to Iranian individuals who, when traveling abroad, are dependent on euros in cash due to their lack of access to accepted credit cards.'"

    The disclosure of the latest scheme to skirt U.S. sanctions has inflamed ongoing tensions between the United States and Germany over its efforts to continue providing Iran with sanctions relief in the face of a crackdown by the Trump administration, which has been locked in diplomatic efforts to convince European partners to pull out of Iran.
    China’s Xi Pledges $20 Billion in Loans to Revive Middle East
    Chinese President Xi Jinping on Tuesday pledged a package of $20 billion in loans, and about $106 million in financial aid, to Middle East nations, as part of what he called an “oil and gas plus” model to revive economic growth in the region.

    Beijing has ramped up engagement in the Middle East in recent years as Arab nations play an important role in Xi’s signature Belt and Road foreign policy plan for strong trade routes linking China with central and southeast Asia.

    Development was key to resolving many security problems in the Middle East, Xi told a gathering with representatives of 21 Arab nations in the Chinese capital.

    “We should treat each other frankly, not fear differences, not avoid problems, and have ample discussion on each aspect of foreign policy and development strategy,” he said.

    China would offer aid worth 100 million yuan ($15 million) to Palestine to support economic development, besides providing a further 600 million yuan ($91 million) to Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Yemen, he added.

    A consortium of banks from China and Arab nations, with a dedicated fund of $3 billion, will also be set up, he said.

    It was unclear what the relationship between the bank consortium, financial aid and the overall loan package would be.

    The loans will fund a plan of “economic reconstruction” and “industrial revival” that would include cooperation on oil and gas, nuclear and clean energy, Xi said.
    China pledges $15 million to Palestinians amid major push for Mideast influence
    China will provide Palestinians with more than $15 million in aid, President Xi Jinping told top Arab officials Tuesday, as Beijing seeks to build its influence in the Middle East and Africa.

    The 100 million yuan pledge to Palestinians was made as part of a plan to give Arab states more than $23 billion in lines of credit, loans and humanitarian assistance for economic development.

    The money will be earmarked for “projects that will produce good employment opportunities and positive social impact in Arab States that have reconstruction needs,” said Xi, without providing further details.

    It is part of a special Chinese program for “economic reconstruction” and “industrial revitalization,” Xi told participants at a China-Arab States forum in Beijing’s Great Hall of the People.

    Beijing is also prepared to provide another one billion yuan ($151 million) to countries in the region to “build capacity for stability maintenance,” Xi said, using a term commonly associated with policing and surveillance.

    Xi said that Syria, Yemen, Jordan and Lebanon would receive $91 million in humanitarian assistance.

    Personally I'd like to see a series of sharply-focused ads about what's happened in Illinois in the past 3 years: --Cuts to social services (eloquently described by honeybear here) --Tens of thousands getting locked out of Medicaid improperly by an IES that doesn't function right --"Death by a thousand cuts" of our peripheral state uni system, which the gov really, really doesn't respect or care about, or perhaps even understand (the reason they exist) --Quincy, Quincy, Quincy --Cairo, Cairo, Cairo - Little Egypt generally --C-U and that 6 employees thing (grrr) There's plenty of fodder - and plenty more where that came from. OTOH, for-profits that provide healthcare to for-profit prisons and detention centers - yeah, that sounds about par for the course. But it's really more for an in-depth investigative series ("How GTCR makes its investors (even) rich(er)"). The gov may not have realized any profits yet, but at some point he won't be gov, and at some point he'll realize profits, because that's how PE operates. And private prisons, and the private providers they outsource services to make big profits, eventually, for their owners/investors. But you could hit the same heartstrings by talking about the dearth of nurses (outsourced, iirc) in Illinois' very own prisons, if you do it right. I dunno what's up with JB's team at the moment.

    Description: 

    <p>Jakarta (AFP) - Quand elle étudiait à l'université en Indonésie, Luna Atmowijoyo faisait ses cinq prières par jour, était membre d'un parti islamiste conservateur et refusait de serrer la main aux hommes n'étant pas de sa famille.Une décennie plus tard, elle est devenue athée et craint pour sa vie.</p><p>Cette femme était plus fondamentaliste que ses parents musulmans très pieux quand, un jour, elle a commencé à douter sérieusement de sa religion.L'impensable s'est ensuite produit dans son esprit: elle a estimé que Dieu n'existait pas.</p><p>Cette conception est très mal perçue dans le pays musulman le plus peuplé au monde, où les athées, très peu nombreux, redoutent de violentes représailles de religieux partisans d'une ligne dure.</p><p>C'est pourquoi Luna, 30 ans, a choisi comme d'autres athées de mener une double vie.Elle a deux identités et porte toujours le voile islamique.Vivant chez ses parents, elle a peur de révéler à son père qu'elle nie désormais l'existence de Dieu.</p><p>"Beaucoup de choses ont commencé à me gêner" dans la religion, raconte Luna, qui a demandé à l'AFP d'utiliser un nom d'emprunt.</p><p>"Je ne pouvais par exemple pas dire Joyeux Noël ou Bon Vesak à des gens d'une autre religion", dit-elle en référence à ces deux fêtes, l'une chrétienne, l'autre bouddhiste.</p><p>L'Indonésie reconnaît six religions - islam, protestantisme, catholicisme, hindouisme, bouddhisme, confucianisme - et la liberté d'expression est garantie par la loi.En théorie.Car critiquer la religion, surtout l'islam, c'est s'exposer à des poursuites pour blasphème et à une peine de prison dans ce pays d'Asie du Sud-Est de 260 millions d'habitants, dont près de 90% sont musulmans. </p><p></p><p>- Menaces de mort -</p><p></p><p>Les autorités répètent pourtant qu'être athée n'est pas illégal, mais à condition de ne pas nier l'existence de Dieu en public.</p><p>"Une fois qu'on commence à disséminer cette idée ou le concept de l'athéisme, c'est problématique", reconnaît Abdurraman Mas'ud, directeur de l'agence de recherche et de développement au ministère des Cultes.</p><p>Cette année, un étudiant a été inculpé d'insulte à l'islam pour avoir comparé sur son compte Facebook Allah aux dieux grecs et écrit que le Coran n'était pas plus scientifique que Le Seigneur des Anneaux, un célèbre roman.Il encourt jusqu'à cinq ans de prison.</p><p>En 2012, un homme avait été condamné à 30 mois de prison pour avoir publié en ligne des critiques sur le prophète Mahomet et s'être déclaré athée.</p><p>Outre le risque d'être emprisonné, les athées interrogés par l'AFP disent craindre que des islamistes partisans d'une ligne dure, à l'origine d'agressions et d'attaques contre des minorités religieuses, s'en prennent désormais à eux.Des cyber-groupes d'islamistes radicaux profèrent régulièrement des menaces de mort via Internet.</p><p>"Le pire qui puisse nous arriver en Indonésie est d'être tué", confie un athée de 35 ans."J'ai vraiment peur pour ma vie", dit-il.</p><p>"Tant qu'ils se tiennent tranquilles, il y a peu de risque", estime Timo Duile, chercheur à l'Université rhénane Frédéric-Guillaume de Bonn (Allemagne), qui a étudié l'athéisme en Indonésie.</p><p>"C'est la raison pour laquelle la plupart des athées auxquels j'ai parlé préfèrent rester incognito", dit-il.</p><p></p><p>- "Plus prudente" -</p><p></p><p>Personne ne sait combien il y a d'athées dans l'archipel.De petits groupes se rencontrent régulièrement dans des grandes villes, mais la plupart se retrouvent sur des forums en ligne comme celui intitulé "Demandez, des athées répondent", qui totalise près de 60.000 membres sur Facebook.</p><p>Karina, une Indonésienne athée vivant à Singapour, se sent "moins seule" depuis qu'elle a découvert sur Facebook un compte pour athées dans son pays natal.</p><p>L'Indonésie n'est pas le seul pays à majorité musulmane où les personnes qui nient l'existence de Dieu sont en danger.Des blogueurs athées ont été tués au Bangladesh, d'autres athées ont été menacés par des représentants du gouvernement en Malaisie et emprisonnés en Egypte.</p><p>Si l'Indonésie est souvent mise en avant pour la pratique modérée de l'islam dans le pays, nombre d'athées estiment que ce n'est plus vrai.</p><p>"Je deviens plus prudente", dit Karina."Je publie toujours des critiques en ligne sur l'islam, mais maintenant c'est plus subtil.Et j'ai assez peur pour mes amis en Indonésie."</p><p></p>

Sure, the contrast helps doctors spot breaks and fractures in bones, but more detail could help pinpoint other problems. Now, a company from New Zealand has developed a bioimaging scanner that can produce full color, three dimensional images of bones, lipids, and soft tissue, thanks to a sensor chip developed at CERN for use in the Large Hadron Collider.

              Granting 'eminence' tag to Jio Institute brazen cronyism: CPI-M      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    New Delhi: The CPI-M on Tuesday slammed the Centre's decision to include the non-existant Jio Institute in the category of 'Institutes of Eminence, and called it "brazen cronyism".

    "The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India-Marxist strongly opposes the move by the Narendra Modi government to accord 'Institution of Eminence' status to the Reliance Foundation's Jio Institute.

    "We condemn this move of the government which cannot be construed as anything but brazen cronyism," the party said in a statement.

    It said for an institution to stand the test of time and evolve into a truly 'world class' institution of higher learning and research is a challenging process.

    "It takes great perseverance and creativity to earn that tag of eminence. It is bewildering that the Jio Institute, which is non-existent and notional, has been given that status solely on a 'drawing board' projection," it added.

    Some time back, the government had announced that 20 institutions, 10 each from the public and private sectors, would be selected as institutions of eminence.

    A Committee headed by former Chief Election Commissioner N. Gopalaswami was tasked to identify these institutions.

    The government released a list of six 'Institutions of Eminence' on Monday which included IIT-Delhi, IISc-Bangalore, IIT-Bombay, BITS Pilani and Manipal Academy of Higher Education, besides Jio Institute.

    "The entire exercise and the considerations by the Gopalaswami Committee have remained largely outside the public domain.

    "The Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry has now come out with an announcement that the total number will be reduced from 20 to just six and one of the chosen three private institutions is Reliance Foundation's Jio Institute," the statement said.

    The Left party stressed that the decision would have a "debilitating effect" on the entire sphere of higher education "underlining the obsession of the government to promote privatisation and undermining public-funded higher education".

    Kerala Finance Minister Thomas Issac also on Tuesday slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the Centre's Jio institute move.

    Issac wrote in his Facebook that the only comparison he can make with Modi is that of King Farouk I of Egypt who suffered from nightmares in which he was chased by an angry lion and haggard from loss of sleep, he went to the zoo and shot two lions in their cage.

    "It's only because it's Ambani that Modi gave this on a platter and he gave it to an institute where not even the foundation has been laid.

    "Even if Ambani desires for the moon, it will be brought to his residence in Mumbai by the Centre," said Issac.

    Issac pointed out that the "Institution of Eminence" has even excluded an institution like the Jawaharlal Nehru University New Delhi.

    By this surprising move, Modi has replaced the legendary Delhi Sultan Muhammad Bin Tuglak and shamed India, said Issac.

    The Indian Institutes of Technology at Delhi and Bombay, the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, the Birla Institute of Technology at Pilani, Rajasthan, which was set up in 1964, and the Manipal Academy of Higher Education, which began with Kasturba Medical College in 1953 are those in the list.

              How an Egyptian Muslim became a Zionist Superhero      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
     The sad truth is that individuals like Hussein who reach out to Jews and change their negative views about Israel are all too easily branded as traitors and harassed by their own. Rachel Wahba tells his story in The Times of Israel:

     Rachel Wahba

    Hussein’s story is unusual to say the least. His courage, after he unintentionally unearthed the truth in a land of censorship, is epic. He could not stop, and he could not stay silent once he started learning the truth about Jews, Israel, Christianity, and the world.

    The middle child in a Middle class mostly secular Muslim family, Hussein was eleven years old when he embarked on a religious path. He began praying several times a day, getting more and more devout. He found himself praying for the destruction of the Jews and Israel. By the time he was a teen he hated us with a passion, a budding Jihadi ready to fight the good fight against the Zionists.

    Obsessed with comic book Superheroes, Hussein channeled his hate in a wholly original way – He was going to be a superhero.  He, Hussein, would “learn everything about the Arch Enemy, the Jew,” the ultimate evil in the universe, responsible for everything wrong with civilization.

    He studied Hebrew, first on his own via the internet and then in university. He knocked on the door of the Israeli embassy in Cairo and got a hero’s welcome (they don’t get many visitors). They gave him books, a world opened.

    Threatening calls came to his home, He was arrested for a night, his father was arrested, he was told several times to stop visiting the embassy. He didn’t take the arrests seriously enough, he refused to stop blogging his new ideas.

    His consciousness expanded, his friends thought his new ideas were crazy, he kept learning. He studied Jewish history, and then Christianity. There were no Jews in Egypt, but he saw how Egyptian Christians (like Jews), were not the dirty, smelly, vile sub-human filth he was taught. He read about Israel. He wrote.
    Instead of becoming the Superhero he set out to be, he rejected Islam. He became a Zionist, an enemy of the state.

    He was arrested and tortured for two months until he lost the capacity to see color, to care about anything except dying. Eventually he was helped out of the country, to flee for his life, into America, where I first heard him speak on a panel with other dissidents from the Middle East.

    When I first met him, I asked about criticizing Islamic ideology without being silenced as “Islamophobic.”  He laughed, saying one cannot care about that. It was validating, because I am accused regularly, even when I am talking about my family’s experience. Even when I tell the story of how my Iraqi mother, accompanying her father to Basra on business, seeing the Shia merchant wash his hands to cleanse himself, after doing business with the Jewish merchant, my grandfather. This story is “Islamophobic.”

    The validation I experience and every Zionist feels with Hussein is a blessing. We need our story understood.

    I don’t have to explain to Hussein how sick to their core it makes Islamists that although they got rid of us Jews in their countries all over the Middle East, Israel rose and keeps thriving as a Jewish country in their midst.

    With Hussein I don’t have to find ways to explain the legitimacy of Israel as a Jewish country, or how the Palestinians were and continue to be inhumanely groomed by Political Islamic ideology as a means to get rid of us after major aggressive wars to destroy the one Jewish country failed. I don’t have to try to convince him that the “refugee” issue and “peaceful protests” in Gaza that keep multiplying in numbers is a cruel sham. He knows.

    He knows first-hand, as did my family, as do most Jews from Arab lands, as does anyone who refuses to live in ignorance of a reality we have to wake up to if we want Israel to survive. This connection with him means the world to me.

    Fotbalová Slavia vyhrála podle tureckých médií přetahovanou o egyptského reprezentanta Mahmúda Hasana, známého pod přezdívkou Trézéguet. Český vicemistr by za krajního záložníka měl zaplatit Kasimpase až 5,9 milionů eur čili více než 150 milionů korun, což by byl suverénně nejdražší přestup v historii české ligy.
              Indignado: Cibiogem y el negocio de los mosquitos transgénicos ....Silvia Ribeiro*      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Silvia Ribeiro*




    Les urgía. Ante la inminencia del cambio de autoridades, la Comisión Intersecretarial de Bioseguridad de los Organismos Genéticamente Modificados (Cibiogem) se apresuró a lanzar una convocatoria para crear mosquitos transgénicos con fines comerciales. No para analizar riesgos y considerar si deberían liberarse al ambiente, como sería el rol de una comisión gubernamental de bioseguridad ante una tecnología de alto riesgo, sino lo contrario, para alentar la creación de mosquitos transgénicos y subsidiar con dinero público a empresas nacionales o extranjeras que, como dice explícitamente el llamado, lo puedan patentar y vender. Cibiogem, después de una década de aprobar que Monsanto nos fumigue y alimente con agrotóxicos cancerígenos como el glifosato, se convirtió de pronto en paladín de la salud: el llamado, afirma, es porque existen pruebas de que los mosquitos transgénicos han sido exitosos en el combate del dengue. Esto es directamente falso: las evidencias muestran lo contrario (https://tinyurl.com/yc83wuuw).

    La convocatoria pública está abierta hasta fin de julio de 2018, para luego firmar un convenio con la opción elegida por Cibiogem, poco antes del cambio de gobierno, pero con una duración de tres años (https://tinyurl.com/y95lj6g7). Entre las muchas aberraciones del llamado está que Cibiogem no tiene mandato para este tipo de actividades, que implican desarrollar proyectos con el propósito de crear o favorecer a una empresa con fines de lucro para construir transgénicos como negocio. Además, implica experimentar con mosquitos transgénicos en la naturaleza, para lo cual se debe solicitar autorización a la Cibiogem, que será entonces juez y parte.

    Decir convocatoria pública es una formalidad, porque está hecha de forma tan estrecha que parece diseñada para subsidiar con fondos públicos a alguna compañía y/o grupo académico al cual se ha contactado previamente, ya que los requisitos son muy complejos de cumplir en muy poco tiempo. Podría ser un contrato con la compañía Oxitec (propiedad de la empresa estadunidense de biología sintética Intrexon) o quizá con algún grupo promovido por la Fundación Bill y Melinda Gates. Podría también ser un estímulo a proyectos que existen –con apoyo del ejército de Estados Unidos– para desarrollar mosquitos con impulsores genéticos ( gene drives), tecnología altamente riesgosa y controvertida diseñada para extinguir especies enteras (https://tinyurl.com/ybtrud4y).

    Llaman a desarrollar mosquitos transgénicos para combatir al dengue y otras enfermedades transmitidas por el mosquito Aedes Aegypti, con construcciones genéticas para disminuir las poblaciones de ese mosquito, impedir biológicamente que sean vectores de enfermedades o para que produzcan descendencia monosexual (sólo machos), ya que son las hembras las que pican. En este último caso abren la puerta a experimentar en México los impulsores genéticos, una técnica para engañar las leyes naturales de la herencia y conseguir que un carácter transgénico se expanda rápidamente, dirigida a manipular especies silvestres y diseñada para reproducirse agresivamente en el medio ambiente. El Convenio de Diversidad Biológica discute esta misma semana sobre los impactos de tal tecnología, cuya liberación no ha sido autorizada en ninguna parte del mundo (https://tinyurl.com/hp2gph5).

    La convocatoria cita como ejemplo exitoso el de los mosquitos transgénicos de Oxitec (OX513A), con los que la empresa ha hecho pruebas en Malasia, Panamá, Islas Caymán y Brasil. Los resultados reales de sus experimentos –no la propaganda de la empresa a la que se refiere Cibiogem– muestran altísimos costos, falta de consulta a las comunidades afectadas y, sobre todo, ninguna evidencia de reducción del dengue u otras enfermedades e incluso ¡aumento de los mosquitos transmisores!

    El modelo de operación de Oxitec ha sido conseguir una contraparte universitaria y/o institución pública, incluyendo municipios, para liberar mosquitos con letalidad condicionada, supuestamente sólo machos (las hembras son las que pican y trasmiten la enfermedad) que aunque se crucen, no puedan desarrollar cría. Para ello liberan miles de millones de mosquitos transgénicos para abrumar a los ejemplares locales, muchísimo menores en número, pero se han escapado miles de hembras picadoras. Las pruebas en Malasia fueron suspendidas por incertidumbre sobre los impactos y por altos costos. En Panamá fueron suspendidas por razones similares. En Brasil, aunque la muy parcial comisión de bioseguridad (CNTBio) aprobó experimentos, las autoridades de inocuidad en salud (Anvisa) no lo han permitido. Un documento reciente de la organización GeneWatch, basado en informes obtenidos por el acta de libertad de información, muestra que en Islas Caymán la población de mosquitos hembras (picadoras, trasmisoras de enfermedad) en las áreas de experimentación ¡aumentó 150 por ciento! La idea del negocio es captar los fondos dedicados a prevención de salud en municipios para desviarlos a estos dudosos proyectos, que además de no ser eficaces contra la enfermedad, son de alto riesgo para la salud de los ecosistemas. Urge cancelar esta absurda convocatoria.

    Don't give up on hope.

    A daily column on what the ALP have as a policy, supported by a local member, and how it has 'helped' the local community. I'll stop if I cannot identify a policy. Feel free to make suggestions. Contact me on FB, not twitter. I have twitter, but never look at it. 

    Gabrielle Williams was appointed Parliamentary Secretary for Carers and Volunteers, working with the Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing and the Minister for Families and Children. 


    As part of the November 24th Vic election campaign I have a petition I want to bring before the Opposition Leader Matthew Guy. I believe Matthew will be the next premier of Victoria and so I am petitioning him as I raise the issues of Employment, Crime and Education in Dandenong. I am also seeking money for my campaign. I don't have party resources, and so my campaign is on foot, and on the internet. Any money I receive that is not spent on the campaign will go to Grow 4 Life. I am asking questions like "What do you love about Dandenong?" and "If you could change something in Dandenong to make it better, what would it be?" I'm not limiting the questions to state issues. I'm happy to discuss anything, and get things done.

    I am a decent man and don't care for the abuse given me. I created a video raising awareness of anti police feeling among western communities. I chose the senseless killing of Nicola Cotton, a Louisiana policewoman who joined post Katrina, to highlight the issue. I did this in order to get an income after having been illegally blacklisted from work in NSW for being a whistleblower. I have not done anything wrong. Local council appointees refused to endorse my work, so I did it for free. Youtube's Adsence refused to allow me to profit from their marketing it. Meanwhile, I am hostage to abysmal political leadership and hopeless journalists. My shopfront has opened on Facebook.

    Here is a video I made Ballad of Mytzi The Puppy 

    The Ballad of Mytzi The Puppy was written as a sequel to 'The Mystery of Webster's Curse.' There was a small opening through which this story might come into being. Master had killed his sister, Mistress, because of the curse. Mytzi was a witness. Mytzi goes seeking justice .. or revenge. It is a tough world for a puppy on its own. This is not about the curse, but about the puppy. It has a beginning, middle and an end.

    Some things should not happen, but they do. Malcolm Turnbull shot himself in the foot delivering a speech nearly identical to one he had delivered in Victoria earlier in the year. There was nothing eye opening in the speech. But typical of the frat boy, journalists had been briefed on the speech prior to it being delivered. And they had been told it was going to be a hit at Tony Abbott, and reported that, by claiming the Liberal Party was not a conservative party. So Turnbull had taken his absence overseas to expand a factional battle in his own party. It is understandable Turnbull wants to secure his legacy as PM. That must be the reason for the speech. Some good people would have written it so as to not do what Turnbull did with his frat boy cleverness Miranda Devine would call 'fox like.' Jeff Kennett correctly highlighted the stupidity of it. Abbott had had Turnbull in a broad tent cabinet, Turnbull rejected talent in his cabinet. It was reminiscent of when then Communications Minister Turnbull appeared pictured behind a sandwich board guy with "Abbott you c#nt" written on it. It later turned out Turnbull had paid the guy $50 for the staged photo op. Stupid. Counter productive. Utterly wasteful. Indulgent. How long will the Liberal Party endure such misbehaviour from their party leader? Turnbull sucks oxygen away from good news, like Cormann's negotiated success with Trump's USA over trade impositions on steel. 

    In 472, after being besieged in Rome by his own generals, Western Roman Emperor Anthemius was captured in the St. Peter's Basilica and put to death. Anthermius had been placed on the throne by Ricimer, a goth born Roman general. Ricimer married Anthemius' daughter, but drifted apart. Open hostility broke out and Constantinople tried to help, but made things worse. 1174, Baldwin IV, 13, became King of Jerusalem, with Raymond III, Count of Tripoli as regent and William of Tyre as chancellor. 1302, Battle of the Golden Spurs (Guldensporenslag in Dutch) – a coalition around the Flemish cities defeated the king of France's royal army. The locals had been killing French peoples, and the French king intended to teach them a lesson in humiliation. He succeeded, badly. 

    In 1801, French astronomer Jean-Louis Pons made his first comet discovery. In the next 27 years he discovered another 36 comets, more than any other person in history. 1804, a duel occurred in which the Vice President of the United States Aaron Burr mortally wounded former Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton. 1893, the first cultured pearl was obtained by Kokichi Mikimoto. 1895, brothers Auguste and Louis Lumière demonstrated movie film technology to scientists. 

    In 1906, Murder of Grace Brown by Chester Gillette in the United States, inspiration for Theodore Dreiser's An American Tragedy. Grace loved the song "Won't you come home Bill Bailey" and she got the nickname Billy. She would often sign letters as "the kid" She was lively and at age 20 was pregnant and unwed. Chester offered to journey with her to an unwed mother's home. He was the father. He killed her after taking her rowing on a lake. He was executed two years later. 1914, Babe Ruth made his debut in Major League Baseball. 1921, former President of the United States William Howard Taft was sworn in as 10th Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, becoming the only person ever to hold both offices. 1924, Eric Liddell won the gold medal in 400m at the 1924 Paris Olympics, after refusing to run in the heats for 100m, his favoured distance, on the Sunday 1930, Australian cricketer Donald Bradman scored a world record 309 runs in one day, on his way to the highest individual Test innings of 334, during a Test match against England

Also 1943, World War II: Allied invasion of Sicily – German and Italian troops launched a counter-attack on Allied forces in Sicily. 1947, the Exodus 1947 headed to Palestine from France. 1960, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee was first published, in the United States. 1962, first transatlantic satellite television transmission. Also 1962, Project Apollo: At a press conference, NASA announced lunar orbit rendezvous as the means to land astronauts on the Moon, and return them to Earth.

    1972, the first game of the World Chess Championship 1972 between challenger Bobby Fischer and defending champion Boris Spassky started. 1979, America's first space station, Skylab, was destroyed as it re-entered the Earth's atmosphere over the Indian Ocean. 1995, the Srebrenica massacre was carried out. 2006, Mumbai train bombings: Two hundred nine people were killed in a series of bomb attacks in Mumbai, India. 2012, astronomers announced the discovery of Styx, the fifth moon of Pluto.

    The NSW Government is being criticized for banning greyhound racing. Some argue that animals will die as a result of the decision. Some argue that many will lose money as a result of the decision. But it is hard to tell if the complaints are motivated by concern for the animals or hatred for a decision made by a conservative government. Some have argued that 'only' 20% of the industry have been called corrupt. Were organised crime to have 20% of any industry, I'd want it cleaned up. But Greyhound racing cannot be cleaned up in NSW as not even the regulators know how. Animal lives don't matter. No one would say a thing if the industry produced meat for human consumption. It is terrible for honest people who miss out on their income. No conservative government would lightly close industry. Margaret Thatcher closed coal mining in UK, but only after it became more expensive to mine than the UK received in returns. The problem for those in the industry is that they turned a blind eye to corruption. There is a cost to that. Malcolm Turnbull owns greyhounds. 

    For some, at the moment, the Sex Party has more credibility.

    FBI admits it failed to prevent gun killer from legally obtaining gun. The killer who went to a church with his weapon and killed several members of the congregation including a senator, had received his gun license in error after a check failed to show his arrest for drug charges.

He was also motivated by the flag of the Confederates from the Civil War, as have been a large number of bigots and haters through the ages.

Earlier this year he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.

    Those following Vikings and the story of Ragnar Lodbrok would be interested to know that on this day in 911, his brother, Rollo, signed the Treaty of Saint-Clair-sur-Epte. It meant the creation of the duchy of Normandy and directly led to Rollo being the ancestor of today's Queen. Another signatory was the king of France, called Charles the Simple. The treaty meant Rollo would oppose other Viking assaults on French land. 

    China sent a fleet of ships on a journey of discovery on this day in 1405. They would discover America and achieve many great things. But China was very big then too, and viewed herself, correctly, as the centre of world power, and so exploration was not a long term agenda. Europe became great explorers as they tried to find new ways to get to China. 

    In 1796, The US took Detroit from Britain under treaty. In 1804, under a Democrat style President, Vice President Aaron Burr duelled with his political opponent Alexander Hamilton, killing him. But no one wanted to chase a Democrat over an illegal killing. In 1833, Aboriginal man Yagan, accused of killing settlers, was killed. His head was displayed in England as a curiosity. Finally it was returned to Australia and buried in ceremony in 2010. 1848, Waterloo Station opened. 1895, two brothers, August and Louis Lumiere demonstrate movie film to scientists. 1914, Babe Ruth debuts in Major League Baseball. 1921, former US President Taft was appointed as Chief justice to the US High Court, the only person ever to serve in both positions. 1930, Donald Bradman scored 309 runs in a day in a test match.

    It’s possible that Brenton Thwaites could be looking at major stardom eventually, especially considering that he’s technically already a star and has proven that a couple of times. The only problem is that his biggest roles have come in two of the biggest box office flops within the last several years. His time spent in Gods of Egypt, which was horribly whitewashed, and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, was not wasted, but his role in both movies was kind of regrettable since both were kind of terrible.

              Seun Kuti      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Au-delà de textes plus engagés sur le plan politique, Seun Kuti, en digne fils de son père Fela, réveille en musique la mémoire des grands leaders panafricains.
    Seun Kuti
    Faire une interview par Whatsapp entre Paris et Lagos est une gageure qui relève du système D. « Hey man, c'est Lagos, on doit faire avec ! », relativise un Seun Kuti amusé par nos entretiens entrecoupés de grésil et qui se terminent, de guerre lasse, par des envois de messages vocaux. À défaut de rencontrer Seun Kuti de visu, en live à l'Afrikan Shrine, le temple musical fondé par son père Fela, on imagine en tapis sonore le bruit des go-slow, les fameux embouteillages de la capitale nigériane. La voix rauque du dauphin de l'afro-beat se fait entendre.

    Ambiance
    Black times, c'est le nom du nouvel opus de Seun Kuti présenté au public parisien au Bataclan le 6 mars dernier, avec en première partie le groupe congolais tous azimuts Jupiter et Okwess. Fondé en 1999 le label anglais Strut, qui a contribué à la seconde carrière du parrain du high-life ghanéen Ebo Taylor, était un véhicule idéal pour les ambitions musicales de Seun : « De mémoire, c'est avec Quinton Scott (fondateur du label Strut NDLR) que j'ai effectué ma première tournée en Angleterre. On a toujours eu une relation amicale. Je venais de quitter Sony. C'était le bon moment pour ce partenariat. »

    Comme à son habitude, le plus jeune fils de Fela – il est né en 1983 – tape fort dans ce nouvel album aux textes trempés dans l'acide, qui fustigent les gouvernements corrompus. Comment pourrait-il en être autrement ? Dans la famille Kuti, l'engagement politique est presque une marque déposée ! En sus, le titre de l'album Black Times assume une volonté d'unité des peuples noirs, déjà théorisée par l'Afro-Américain William E.B. Du Bois dans son ouvrage de 1903 Les Âmes du peuple noir. « Nous autres Noirs avons besoin de comprendre qui nous sommes. Nos consciences sont affaiblies », estime Seun Kuti. « J'appelle cela Black Times, les moments noirs, car l'histoire collective des Noirs est émaillée de bons et de mauvais moments. Ce titre rappelle qu'on doit connaître notre propre histoire et qui nous sommes vraiment ! »

    De Chaka Zulu à Marcus Garvey
    Seun Kuti
    À l'appui de la quête philosophique du chanteur nigérian, on trouve dans l'album de nombreuses références panafricaines : Patrice Lumumba, Nasser, Kwame Nkrumah, Thomas Sankara ou encore Chaka Zulu. Dixit Seun : « Garvey, Stokely Carmichael alias Kwame Ture, Sékou Touré, Beko Ransome Kuti, frère de Fela et militant des droits humains, m'ont influencé. Ces figures se sont sacrifiées pour que j'aie cette liberté de pensée aujourd'hui. Tous les acquis de la condition de la femme et de l'homme modernes africains, de l'étudiant jusqu'au chauffeur de bus, sont le résultat de grands sacrifices. Il faut rendre hommage à ceux qui ont donné leurs ressources, leur énergie, leur sang pour qu'on ait ces opportunités. » Au sein de ce corpus personnel conséquent, Seun Kuti cite volontiers l'intellectuel afro-américain Amos Wilson : « Le docteur est un des théoriciens noirs, décédé en 1995, qui a façonné ma pensée. Je conseille de googler ses discours. Il m'a ouvert les yeux sur les aspects psychologiques de la lutte panafricaine, sur le degré très fort d'endoctrinement des Africains, la dégradation économique et l'inertie politique de nos dirigeants... »

    Pour Seun Kuti, le panafricanisme et l'unité des peuples noirs ne sont pas des concepts abstraits : « Je crois en la capacité des Noirs à résoudre leurs problèmes, à trouver des solutions pour leur futur. Partout dans le monde il y a une stigmatisation. L'identité noire est hyper-criminalisée et infantilisée. Nos sociétés ne sont pas suffisamment développées parce qu'on ne nous a pas laissé la chance d'être nous-mêmes, de canaliser notre énergie et de nous assumer de façon pleine et entière. » Afin d'arriver à cette émancipation, Seun Kuti n'exclut pas le recours à la pensée marxiste : « Le marxisme n'est pas éloigné du principe de partage dans les sociétés africaines. Le socialisme faisait partie de la philosophie africaine bien avant que Marx n'invente le communisme. Du marxisme, je retiens que le contrôle de la production devrait bénéficier à l'ensemble du peuple. »

    La puissance de l'afrobeat
    Sur les diverses scènes, de Paris, à Londres en passant par l'Amérique du Sud, Seun et ses danseuses se sont livrés à la transe de l'afrobeat, ce genre musical aux confluents entre l'high-life du Ghana, la juju nigériane et le funk de James Brown, le tout ponctué par le chekere. Ce cucurbitacée qui a été séché pendant plusieurs mois et vidé de sa pulpe produit un son caractéristique en étant secoué. « Dans toute la musique africaine, il y a un esprit fort qui la rend aussi puissante et énergique. C'est en nous. Ça vient de nos tripes, de notre authenticité », analyse-t-il. Ce rythme hypnotique intronisé par Fela Kuti rend le message politique d'autant plus audible qu'il entre en résonance avec les cuivres de l'Egypt 80. Ce groupe qu'il a fondé dans la foulée du Africa 70 a été ensuite repris par Seun. Le jeune homme y a commencé comme choriste à l'âge de neuf ans : « Je suis très fier de voyager dans le monde entier avec l'Egypt 80. Ce groupe existe grâce au professionnalisme et à la générosité que les membres ont su partager avec moi », rappelle-t-il.

    Sur le titre éponyme « Black Times », Seun a fait appel à un aîné issu de la génération de son père le guitar hero Carlos Santana. Engagé politiquement lui-même, Santana a coproduit en 2017 Dolores, un documentaire sur la Latino-Américaine Dolores Huerta, une figure syndicaliste et féministe. On peut presque établir un parallèle avec le parcours exemplaire de Funmilayo Ransome Kuti, la grand-mère de Seun, qui a obtenu le droit de vote pour les femmes nigérianes : « C'est très intéressant la façon dont s'est fait ce featuring avec Carlos. Il a un super état d'esprit », raconte Seun Kuti. « Rencontrer quelqu'un comme lui dont j'ai toujours suivi le parcours et qui valide ce que je fais, ça ne peut que renforcer ma détermination. » Autre point commun entre les deux artistes : leur défense décomplexée des drogues douces. Seun Kuti le dit clairement sur un de ses titres, « Bad Man Lighter » : « C'est un message que j'envoie contre toutes les formes d'hypocrisie sur l'herbe. Les gens ne veulent pas que tu fumes. Même lors des concerts il y a des écriteaux « Interdit de fumer » partout. Mais ça n'empêche pas qu'en coulisse les mêmes personnes s'envoient des drogues dures, de la cocaïne, du crack... »

    « Les gouvernements sont des conseils d'administration »
    Mais le titre qui est sans doute le plus savoureux et mordant de l'album, c'est « Theory of Goat and Yam », la théorie de la chèvre et de l'igname. Seun Kuti y est encore plus provocateur, maniant la dérision, comme son père l'avait fait en 1976 avec « Zombie », morceau qui s'en prenait à l'armée nigériane. « Ma chanson se moque de l'ancien président nigérian Goodluck Jonathan, pointe Seun Kuti. La raison pour laquelle les politiciens sont corrompus, c'est qu'ils sont trop proches de l'argent. Si tu as un accès aussi facile, tu vas voler. Je fais cette analogie avec l'igname. Si tu donnes de l'igname à ta chèvre, elle va le manger. Notre ancien président était si ridicule que j'avais envie de lui appliquer cette théorie. S'il y a des chèvres qui mangent l'igname que normalement les humains devraient manger, ça veut dire que les humains eux broutent de l'herbe ! C'est le cercle vicieux qui se déroule dans mon pays depuis trop longtemps. »

    Dans le même sens, « Giving my vote back » est une critique acerbe du recours au vote électoral que Seun Kuti juge illusoire : « Ce que je dis dans la chanson, c'est que les gouvernements n'existent plus. Ils sont devenus des départements de contrôle public pour les multinationales. Les élites politiques agissent pour les intérêts privés du monde des affaires, pas pour ceux du peuple qu'ils sont censés servir. Ça explique pourquoi les présidents sont les directeurs de ces départements de contrôle public. Les ministres sont devenus des managers. Le Sénat est la partie juridique de cette entité. L'armée et la police en sont le service de sécurité. Et nous, le peuple, devons reprendre le pouvoir à ces gigantesques conseils d'administration déguisés en gouvernements !

    Pour sortir de ces engrenages dans lesquels la plupart des gouvernements africains sont englués, Seun Kuti mise sur la refonte des rapports entre le continent et sa diaspora : « On a besoin de bons leaders au sein de la diaspora mondiale pour nous recentrer sur nous-mêmes et recréer du lien. Opérer cette reconnexion qu'a faite Malcolm X au niveau de la diaspora noire et Kwame Nkrumah sur le plan de l'Afrique, à l'époque des combats pour les droits civiques et pour les Indépendances africaines. On doit reconstruire ces ponts. Les gouvernements africains doivent ouvrir des banques d'investissement entre la Terre-mère et les communautés africaines du monde entier. Il faut que partout on puisse bénéficier des opportunités et des ressources en Afrique. Cette terre si riche doit pouvoir nourrir ces enfants partout dans le monde. Ça ne doit pas seulement profiter à des élites cupides et à leurs affidés en Occident. » Dans cette volonté de forger un réseau afro 2.0, Seun Kuti a enregistré avec des rappeurs partageant sa vision : M1 du groupe Dead Prez, en featuring sur son précédent disque A Long Way to The Beginning, sorti en 2014, et Blitz the ambassador du Ghana qui l'a invité la même année sur le titre « Make You no Forget » de son album bien-nommé Afropolitan Dreams : « Ce sont des artistes qui ont des messages positifs et très forts qui parlent à l'ensemble de l'humanité. Ils ne sont pas dans le consumérisme, le capitalisme et autres ismes qui ne sont que des moyens de contrôler l'esprit des gens socialement et économiquement. On partage cette passion de faire une musique qui éveille les consciences à l'échelle planétaire. »

    Et si vous avez raté Seun Kuti et ses Egypt 80, soyez rassurés, d'autres dates sont à venir un peu partout : « Cette année est particulièrement chargée. Il faut venir et passer un bon moment avec nous ! » conclut-il.

              Vor 2.000 Jahren löschte eine Katastrophe Ägyptens Zivilisation aus — jetzt könnte sie erneut stattfinden      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Pyramiden von Gizeh

    Dass Kleopatras Selbstmord den Untergang des altes Ägyptens ausgelöst hat, ist nur eine Legende. Der wahre Grund für den Niedergang der großen Volksmacht ist viel dramatischer als eine politische Zankerei. 

    Nun konnten Wissenschaftler erstmals den Dominoeffekt von dem damaligen sozialen Aufruhr über den verheerenden Klimawandel bis zum Ausbruch eines Vulkans zurückverfolgen.

    Ein Team von Historikern hat einen Zusammenhang zwischen vulkanischen Aktivitäten und dem Wasserstand des Nils entdeckt. Die Forscher glauben, dass der Fluss eine zentrale Rolle beim Untergang der Kultur gespielt haben könnte.

    Klimawandel und soziale Unruhen gehen oftmals Hand in Hand. Es kommt zu einschneidenden Veränderungen in Politik und Wirtschaft, die gesamte Zivilisationen auslöschen können. Der Gedanke war also naheliegend, dass dies auch im Fall von Ägypten so geschehen sein könnte. 

    Ein Vulkanausbruch hat den Wasserstand des Nils sinken lassen

    „Deshalb sind die Aufzeichnungen klimatischer Veränderungen so wichtig“, schreibt Joseph Manning, einer der Autoren der Studie, von der Yale University. „Zum ersten Mal erkennen wir eine dynamische Gesellschaft im damaligen Ägypten, und haben nicht nur eine starre Beschreibung von ein paar chronologisch geordneten Texten.“

    Die Forscher bezogen sich auf frühere Studien, die Daten von Vulkanausbrüchen der vergangenen 2.500 Jahre zusammengetragen hatten. Vulkane müssen ihre Lava nicht direkt in euren Vorgarten speien, um zum Problem zu werden. Asche und Schwefelpartikel können sehr weit durch die Luft geschleudert werden und Sonnenlicht reflektieren. Das kann auch in weit entfernten Teilen der Erde die Temperatur und den Regenfall beeinflussen.

    Um festzulegen, wie Ägyptens Wetter damals durch Vulkanausbrüche beeinflusst worden sein könnte, nahmen die Wissenschaftler den Nilometer von Roda zur Hilfe. Der Wasserstandsmesser steht auf der Südspitze der Insel Roda in Kairo und zeichnet bereits seit dem 7. Jahrhundert die Wässerstände des Nils auf. So konnten die Wissenschaftler die hohen Wasserstände und Fluten mit Vulkanausbrüchen auf der ganzen Erde abgleichen und schließlich anhand historischer Schriftstücke Rückschlüsse auf die damalige Zeit ziehen.

    Der Nil war das Zentrum des damaligen Lebens

    Am Ende erhielt das Team ein vollständiges Bild der Nilverhältnisse während der Zeit des alten Ägyptens. Es stimmt überein mit den tektonischen Aktivitäten der Erde.

    „War der Wasserstand des Nils normal, dann gehörte das Niltal zu den landwirtschaftlich produktivsten Orten der damaligen Welt“, schreibt Klimahistoriker Francis Lodlow vom Trinity College in Dublin. „Doch der Fluss war sehr anfällig für instabile Wasserstände.“

    Heute ist der Nil als der längste Fluss der Welt berühmt, doch damals war er das Zentrum für praktisch alles. Jeden Sommer hat ein Monsun den Fluss gefüllt, der Wasservorräte lieferte und fruchtbaren Schlick angespült hat. Ohne dieses jährliche Ereignis wäre Ägyptens Landwirtschaft ins Straucheln geraten, Nahrung wäre knapp geworden, der Handel hätte gelitten. 

    Historische Aufzeichnungen belegen, dass es eine solche Periode tatsächlich gegeben hat — nach dem Tod von Alexander dem Großen, 232 vor Christus. Dann, unter der Herrschaft von Königin Kleopatra, ereignete sich ein Vulkanausbruch auf der anderen Seite des Erdballs. Dadurch gelangte so viel Asche und heißes Gas in die Atmosphäre, dass der Monsun ausblieb und eine Hungerkatastrophe auslöste. 

    Ein Vulkanausbruch kann eine weltweite Katastrophe auslösen

    Zu dieser Zeit herrschten Unruhen, das Römische Reich nahm weite Teile Europas ein. Kleopatras Herrschaft litt zusätzlich unter einer massiven Nahrungsknappheit und Plagen, die sich in den Städten ausbreiteten. Dieser soziale Zusammenbruch spielte Rom in die Karten, nachdem Kleopatra dann 30 vor Christus unter bis heute nicht geklärten Umständen starb.

    Wissenschaftler glauben nicht, dass wir in diesem Jahrhundert einen Vulkanausbruch erleben werden. „Doch das könnte sich sehr schnell ändern“, sagte Manning. „Wir müssen genauer untersuchen, welche Auswirkungen das heute hätte. Vor allem auch darauf, wie das Wasser des Nils zwischen Äthiopien, dem Sudan und Ägypten aufgeteilt wird.“

    Lest auch: „Supervulkan könnte früher ausbrechen als befürchtet — die Nasa arbeitet an einem 3 Milliarden teuren Rettungsplan“

    Die Studie zeigt, wie verheerend die Auswirkungen eines Vulkanausbruchs sein können. Vor allem mit Blick auf den Vulkan im Yellowstone Nationalpark, der früher ausbrechen könnte als zunächst angenommen, stellen sich Forscher nun die Frage, wie eine weltweite Katastrophe verhindert werden kann.

    I. Introduction: The energy challenge in crisis contexts

    Sustainable energy is a critical element for achieving goals of immediate recovery and longer-term resilience in fragile and crisis contexts. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the Arab region, where countries have experienced an expansion of conflict, drought and an unprecedented level of displacement. The ability of communities to cope with and rapidly recover from crisis hinges in many ways on their ability to regain sustainable access to energy.

    Energy fuels communities access to water, to social services like health and education, to transport and communication needs, and is critical for regenerating livelihoods and local economies. But too often countries affected by crisis are unable to bring back online the type of energy systems needed for an effective recovery. In such contexts, decentralized energy solutions are now receiving greater attention, as a way of meeting the needs of affected communities and setting the foundations for resilience.

    As countries seek new bridges between humanitarian and development interventions, and new resilience-based approaches to crisis recovery, the role of sustainable energy solutions has come into greater focus. Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG 7) on energy calls on countries to “ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.” Among those most in need are the record numbers of individuals globally and in the Arab region affected by conflicts, droughts and disasters. Many countries suffering the impacts of crisis are also energy poor, relying heavily on energy imports for economic and social needs. In these contexts, expanding sustainable energy solutions is seen not as an end in itself, but as an enabler on the road from fragility to resilience. This is particularly important in the protracted situations of conflict and displacement faced in the Arab region.

    Globally, the number of people forcibly displaced by conflicts and disasters has reached record levels. The world now has a record 65.3 million forcibly displaced persons, including over 21 million refugees crossing borders, and over 40 million internal displacements within countries. In 2016 alone, there were 31.1 million new internal displacements associated with conflict and disasters globally, of which 24.2 million were internally displaced by disasters and 6.9 million by conflicts. In the past eight years, the world has recorded more than 203 million Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) around the world, an unprecedented increase.

    To make matters worse, the vast majority of refugees and IDPs are hosted in developing countries which already face strained levels of energy security. Constraints often exist to extending energy access to displaced communities, either owing to ongoing conflicts and destruction of power grid infrastructure, or from lack of fiscal space and limited ability to expand already-stretched energy supplies. In such communities, expanding use of decentralized energy solutions is important not only for short-term needs, but from a longer-term development perspective as it helps reduce pressures on host communities and fiscal pressures on the State.

    Across the Arab region, a lack of access to energy is hindering the ability of crisisaffected communities to earn a living, access food and water, or access health and education services, and is an important obstacle to recovering from crisis. As further elaborated below, in many countries in the region, expanding access to solar solutions has emerged as one potential enabler of resilience building for affected communities. The ability to scale-up sustainable energy solutions in crisis contexts is in many ways a litmus test for the aspired goal of bridging the humanitarian-development divide and crafting ‘resilient recovery’ solutions – priorities that have come into strong focus in recent years in global and regional fora.

    The SDGs and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development call for more integrated and resilience-based approaches to development. Energy is a key factor in helping individuals, households, communities, society and the State bounce back effectively from crisis and shocks, ensuring that crises do not lead to a downturn in human development indicators, while also helping communities transition to long-term resilient pathways.

    Israel shutters Gaza crossings to pressure Hamas over border violence-Netanyahu says move to be coupled with other unspecified measures, as government comes under criticism for failing to tackle scourge of blazes caused by kites and balloons-By Raoul Wootliff and Judah Ari Gross-TOI-JUL 10,18

    Amid criticism over his government’s response to ongoing violence on the Gaza border, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Monday that Israel will close the Kerem Shalom border crossing that serves as the main entry point for commercial goods and humanitarian aid into the coastal enclave.“We will double our efforts against Hamas,” Netanyahu told his Likud faction meeting in the Knesset to the applause of party activists.The prime minister said that the Kerem Shalom closure will be coupled with “other measures that I won’t go into.”Speaking at his own Yisrael Beytenu party’s faction meeting, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said that he had instructed the IDF “to take a number of steps” to respond to “Hamas provocations” on the border.“They will start to understand that it doesn’t work in just one direction,” he said.“We are not looking for a confrontation or for a military venture but in the way Hamas operates, the [situation] deteriorates and [Hamas] is liable to pay the full price, a much heavier price than Operation Protective Edge,” Liberman added, referring to the 2014 war with the terror organization.On Sunday it was reported that Hamas had begun returning its security forces to the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel, the first time the terror organization has done so since the start of deadly clashes in late March.Over the past three months, weekly clashes have taken place on the Gaza border, with Israel accusing Hamas of using the demonstrations as cover to carry out attacks and attempt to breach the security fence. The “March of Return” protests have also seen Palestinians fly airborne incendiary devices toward Israeli territory, sparking hundreds of fires in southern Israel and causing millions of shekels in estimated damages.Immediately after Netanyahu spoke, the Israel Defense Forces confirmed that Kerem Shalom wold be closed to all commercial goods into and out of the Gaza Strip.The army said humanitarian aid, notably food and medicine, would still be allowed into Gaza, but would require special permission from the military liaison to the Palestinians, Maj. Gen. Kamil Abu Rokon.According to IDF, the idea of closing Kerem Shalom was proposed by IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot and was approved by Netanyahu and Liberman.The military said the closure would continue so long as Palestinians persist in launching incendiary kites and balloons into Israel.“In light of this situation in which the Hamas terror group is taking advantage of the residents of the Strip and launching incendiary and explosive kites and balloons at the communities in the Gaza periphery… these steps are being taken,” the army said.“If this phenomenon continues, these steps will continue and even get worse,” the IDF added.The only cargo crossing between Gaza and Israel has been subject to a strict blockade by both Israel and Egypt for the past 11 years, meant to prevent terrorist groups from bringing weapons into the Strip.The crossing has been closed a number of times in the past three months after sustaining damage from fires set by Palestinian protesters.Rioters first attacked the crossing on May 4. They broke through the gates and, apparently believing they were in Israeli territory, set fire to the fuel lines, according to Israeli officials. In actuality, they were on the Palestinian side of the crossing.A week later, following a violent demonstration along the border, vandals entered Kerem Shalom and significantly damaged the fuel terminal, as well as a conveyor belt used to bring raw construction materials into Gaza and two other belts used to transport animal feed.In addition to closing the crossing, the army said it was prematurely ending the temporary extension to the permitted Gaza fishing zone, which had allowed fisherman to sail up to nine miles from the coast in order to take advantage of the summer fishing season.“The fishing zone will return to a range of six miles,” the army said.The Israeli military accused the Hamas terrorist group of encouraging Palestinians to launch incendiary kites and balloons from Gaza into Israel.“The Hamas terrorist group is response for everything done in the Gaza Strip and for all the consequences of it. Hamas is dragging the residents of the Strip into the abyss,” the army said. “The IDF will continue to act as necessary to preserve the security interests of the State of Israel.Netanyahu’s announcement came after opposition leaders slammed him for what they described as a lackluster response to the border violence and kite fires.Yesh Atid party leader Yair Lapid told reporters earlier Monday that the prime minister wasn’t doing enough to counter airborne arson attacks.“The prime minister has a new reason why he is doing nothing in Gaza — because he is waiting for the Americans,” Lapid said at his party’s weekly faction meeting in the Knesset.“For four years he has done nothing regarding Gaza,” he continued. “He knew, we all knew that there would be a new round of violence, but he did nothing. And now the round of violence has come. Our fields are being burned.“The army needs to be given a bigger toolbox to deal with this,” Lapid said.He claimed that Netanyahu is waiting for the Trump administration to present its peace plan and has therefore not acted to stem the arson attacks from Gaza.“One who care about security does not wait for the Americans,” Lapid charged. “He acts on his own. We cannot allow them to decide for us. We need to present our own plan.”Zionist Union chairman Avi Gabbay told his faction meeting that in the four years that have passed since Operation Defensive Edge, Netanyahu has “failed to provide security to the people of Israel.”Speaking a day after the anniversary of the 2014 war, Gabbay said that the government’s efforts regarding Gaza since then have amounted to “nada and nothing.”“It’s clear that Netanyahu is no longer Mr. Security,” he said, referring to a nickname given to the prime minister. “Mr Security would have used the opportunity presented after the war to create a plan, to bring security, to provide us with some forward thinking. Instead: Nothing.”Gabbay also said that the fact that Netanyahu has only visited the Gaza border communities once since the recent outbreak of violence proves that he has lost touch with the needs of residents of the area.“Only someone who doesn’t see his citizens can allow himself not to care for them,” he said.

    Gazans say closing crossing a ‘crime against humanity,’ vow response-After Israel announces move in response to border violence, Hamas demands international community step in, Islamic Jihad calls move 'declaration of war,'-By Adam Rasgon and TOI staff-JUL 10,18

    The Hamas terror organization called Israel’s decision to close the Kerem Shalom crossing with Gaza a “crime against humanity” on Monday, hours after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced the move to respond to cross border violence.“Netanyahu’s approval of additional measures to intensify the siege and prevent the entry of materials and goods to Gaza is a new crime against humanity,” Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said.Barhoum also accused the international community of being silent on “the crime of the suffocating siege on the Gaza Strip,” and called on it to take “immediate action” to end the blockade of the Strip.Kerem Shalom, the only cargo crossing between Gaza and Israel, has been subject to a strict blockade by Israel for the past 11 years that is meant to prevent terrorist groups from bringing weapons into the Strip. Egypt also tightly controls the nearby Rafah border crossing into the Sinai.The Islamic Jihad terror group said the step was a “new declaration of war” and vowed to respond.“Once again, the government of Zionist terror announces a war on the Palestinian people by intensifying its oppressive siege that has multiplied the suffering of the Palestinian people for more than 11 years,” it said in a statement.“We are coordinating with the factions and forces to evaluate all developments, including the occupation’s most recent measures, which we are dealing with as a new declaration of war on the Palestinian people,” Islamic Jihad added.Earlier, Netanyahu said Israel will be undertaking measures to pressure Hamas, including closing Kerem Shalom, the main commercial passageway between Israel and the coastal enclave.Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said he had instructed the military “to take a number of steps” to respond to “Hamas provocations” on the border.“We are not looking for a confrontation or for a military venture, but in the way Hamas operates, the [situation] deteriorates and [Hamas] is liable to pay the full price, a much heavier price than Operation Protective Edge,” Liberman added, referring to the 2014 war with the terror organization.Over the past three months, weekly clashes have taken place on the Gaza border, with Israel accusing Hamas of using the demonstrations as cover to carry out attacks and attempt to breach the security fence. The “March of Return” protests have also seen Palestinians fly airborne incendiary devices toward Israeli territory, sparking hundreds of fires in southern Israel and causing millions of shekels in estimated damages.Immediately after Netanyahu spoke, the Israel Defense Forces confirmed that Kerem Shalom would be closed to all commercial goods into and out of the Gaza Strip.The army said humanitarian aid, notably food and medicine, would still be allowed into Gaza, but would require special permission from the military liaison to the Palestinians, Maj.

    Israel puts Palestinian TV station on terror blacklist-Hamas says designation of al-Quds channel is itself 'terror'; Arab MKs condemn move as violating freedom of speech-By Judah Ari Gross and Alexander Fulbright-TOI-JUL 10,18

    Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman officially designated the al-Quds television network a terrorist organization, his office said Monday, accusing the Lebanon-based outlet of being an arm of Hamas.“According to up-to-date, reliable, cross-checked and diverse intelligence, the al-Quds station is a propaganda wing of Hamas, representing a central platform for distributing the terrorist organization’s messages,” the defense minister’s office said in a statement.The idea to declare the outlet a terrorist organization was proposed by the Shin Bet security service and the Defense Ministry’s department for fighting terrorist with economic tools, Liberman’s office said.Coinciding with the move, reporters and cameramen from the channel based in Israel, as well as employees of a local production company that works with the network, were questioned by police on Monday and told to cease operations, according to the Haaretz daily.The terror designation was slammed by Hamas an act of “terror.”“The decision on the al-Quds channel is another step of terror that joins the other violent decisions Israel has taken against the Palestinian people,” a spokesperson for the group was quoted as saying by Haaretz.In a statement, the channel accused Israel of clamping down on freedom of speech and called on the Palestinian Authority to pressure Jerusalem to rescind the move. It said it would continue to work to “expose the occupation’s crimes.”A number of Arab Israeli lawmakers also condemned the blacklisting.“There is a strong betrayal here of freedom of expression. The defense minister likely wants the media to glorify the occupation and not expose its misdeeds,” Joint (Arab) List MK Ahmad Tibi said at the Knesset.The Israeli military in recent years has shuttered a number of television and radio stations operating in the West Bank over suspected incitement and ties to terror groups.Israeli leaders have spoken out repeatedly about the threat of incitement in Palestinian media, while Palestinian television programs are cited in Shin Bet interrogations of terrorists as sources of inspiration.Adam Rasgon contributed to this report.

    Liberman vows ‘strong response’ if Syrian military enters Golan DMZ-Defense chief says Israel will push for 'every tiny detail' of 1974 disengagement agreement to be upheld as Syria regime marches toward border area-By TOI staff-JUL 10,18

    Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman threatened Syria Monday with a “strong response” should it violate a delicate decades-old ceasefire agreement on the Golan heights as it looks to reclaim pockets of rebel-held territory.Pro-regime Syrian forces have advanced toward the Israeli border in recent weeks, and Israel has called for the 1974 separation of forces agreement between Israel and Syria to be upheld and the demilitarized buffer zone on the border respected.“We’ll respect the disengagement agreement from ’74 and insist on every tiny detail,” said Liberman at the start of his Yisrael Beytenu party’s weekly faction meeting. “Any violations will be met with a harsh response from the State of Israel.”Liberman also reiterated that Israel would not allow Iran to use Syria as a beachhead from which to launch attacks on Israeli territory. “Nothing has changed and nothing is new,” he said.The warning came hours after Israeli planes reportedly bombed an air base in central Syria used by Iranian militia fighters in the latest confrontation between the countries.On Friday, the Israeli military attacked a Syrian position after a mortar shell exploded in the buffer zone between the two countries, in what the military said was a violation of the 1974 agreement that ended the Yom Kippur War.The military said the mortar shell was fired during ongoing battles between Syrian dictator Bashar Assad’s forces and opposition groups in the area. The army would not say if it believed the shelling from Syria was intentionally directed at the buffer zone or if it was a stray shot from nearby fighting.The Israel Defense Forces said it would continue to hold Assad’s regime responsible for upholding the 1974 ceasefire agreement between the two countries.“The IDF is not involved in the internal fighting in Syria. At the same time, it will continue to demand the implementation of the ceasefire agreements from 1974, including the preservation of the buffer zone,” the army said.Under the armistice, a demilitarized zone was established between Israel and Syria.The area’s status as a demilitarized zone has made it a de facto safe haven for residents of southern Syria. As a result, tens of thousands of Syrians began fleeing toward this buffer zone to escape a renewed offensive by Assad’s forces, with help from Russia and Iran-backed Shiite militias.Bombing raids by the Russian and Syrian air forces starting last week, along with a ground offensive, have resulted in dozens of deaths and the displacement of more than 300,000 Syrians, according to UN assessments.The tens of thousands of displaced Syrians who have made their way toward the Israeli Golan Heights have settled in overflowing, under-resourced tent cities near the border. In some cases, the displaced person camps are located a few hundred meters from the security fence, clearly visible from Israel.IDF officials have said they do not expect masses of Syrians to attempt to breach the security fence in search of refuge. Syrians in the area have called for both Israel and Jordan to open their borders or to establish safe zones where they can remain without fear of bombings by Syria or Russia.Israel, which has technically been at war with Syria since 1948, has offered humanitarian assistance to residents of the country’s southwest in the past two weeks, including taking in dozens of injured Syrians for medical treatment, but has repeatedly stated that it will not allow refugees to cross the border.Judah Ari Gross contributed to this report.

    Egypt denies French conclusion that fire likely caused 2016 plane crash-Top prosecutor claims published report is baseless, says Egyptian investigation found traces of explosives on passengers of EgyptAir flight-By Agencies-TOI-JUL 10,18

    CAIRO, Egypt — Egypt on Monday denied a report by French aviation investigators saying that a cockpit fire likely caused the crash of an EgyptAir flight from Paris to Cairo in 2016.Egypt’s top prosecutor said in a statement Monday that the Egyptian investigation into the crash of EgyptAir Flight 804 is still underway. It said the French report is “baseless,” adding that “traces of explosives were found on the remains of passengers and parts of the plane.”The French investigation agency BEA said Friday that the “most likely hypothesis” is that a fire broke out in the cockpit and “spread rapidly, resulting in loss of control.”The Airbus A320 was flying from Paris to Cairo on May 19, 2016, when it crashed into the southeastern Mediterranean, killing 66 people, including 40 Egyptians and 15 French citizens.French investigators had always leaned towards a mechanical fault as the cause of the crash, saying they suspected that a mobile phone or tablet had caught fire.An official Egyptian investigation suggested the plane had been bombed, claiming traces of explosives had been found on the victims’ remains. But a source close to the French investigation previously said no such traces were found by the team.The BEA said the crew could be heard discussing a fire on the cockpit voice recorder and that the plane’s automatic ACARS messaging system had flagged up smoke on board.It said it was waiting for Egypt to publish its final report into the crash to understand how the two countries arrived at a different conclusion.Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.

    Top UK diplomat Boris Johnson quits as Brexit tensions jolt government-Foreign secretary becomes the second British minister to quit in past day amid criticism from Brexiteers of May's plan for EU divorce-By Jill Lawless-TOI-JUL 10,18

    LONDON (AP) — British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigned Monday, adding to divisions over the country’s exit from the European Union that threaten to tear apart Prime Minister Theresa May’s government.May’s office said in a terse statement that the prime minister had accepted Johnson’s resignation and would name a replacement soon.Johnson, one of the best-known and most flamboyant members of the government, quit just hours after the resignation late Sunday of Brexit Secretary David Davis, the government’s top official dealing with the divorce from the EU.Davis said he could not support May’s plan to maintain close trade and regulatory ties with the EU, which he said gave “too much away, too easily.”There was no immediate statement from Johnson, another loud pro-Brexit voice within May’s divided government.If Davis’s resignation rattled May, Johnson’s shook the foundations of her government.The resignations came just days after May announced she had finally united her quarrelsome government behind her plan for a divorce deal with the EU.Less than nine months remain until Britain leaves the bloc on March 29, 2019, and the EU has warned Britain repeatedly that time is running out to seal a divorce deal.Britain and the EU hope to reach broad agreement by October so that EU national parliaments can ratify a deal before Britain leaves. That timetable looks increasingly optimistic, but European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said the EU was available “available 24/7.”Schinas said the bloc “will continue to negotiate in good will, bona fide, with Prime Minister Theresa May and the UK government negotiators in order to reach a deal.”Steve Baker, a junior Brexit minister also resigned. May appointed staunchly pro-Brexit lawmaker Dominic Raab as the country’s new Brexit secretary.Before Johnson quit, May’s official spokesman, James Slack, said Britain wanted to “move forward at pace” in the negotiations.“There is now a new secretary of state and we look forward to moving on,” he said.During a 12-hour meeting on Friday, May’s fractious Cabinet — including Davis — finally agreed on a plan for future trade ties with the EU.The plan seeks to keep the UK and the EU in a free-trade zone for goods, and commits Britain to maintaining the same rules as the bloc for goods and agricultural products.Some Brexit-supporting lawmakers are angry at the proposals, saying they will keep Britain tethered to the bloc and unable to change its rules to strike new trade deals around the world.In a resignation letter, Davis said the “‘common rule book’ policy hands control of large swathes of our economy to the EU and is certainly not returning control of our laws in any real sense.”Davis also said that May’s plan “would be a risk at least of delivering a poor outcome.”His departure was hailed by pro-Brexit Conservative lawmakers, who have long considered May too prone to compromise with the EU. They believe the proposals breach several of the “red lines” the government has set out, including a commitment to leave the bloc’s tariff-free customs union.Some euroskeptic lawmakers dream of replacing May with a staunch Brexiteer, such as Johnson, who in the past has disagreed publicly with his boss.Davis said he did not want his resignation to become a rallying cry for May’s ouster.“I like Theresa May, I think she’s a good prime minister,” Davis said.Davis did not urge other ministers to resign, saying he was in a unique position because the Brexit secretary’s job is to sell the government’s policy.“I’d have to deliver this. I’d have to do something I didn’t believe in,” he told the BBC. “That’s not a tenable position. … Others don’t have that same responsibility.”Under Conservative Party rules, a confidence vote in a leader can be triggered if 48 Conservative lawmakers request one.But leading pro-Brexit legislator Jacob Rees-Mogg said “I don’t think a no-confidence vote is immediately in the offing.” He urged May to abandon her plans and take a tougher line with Brussels.“Friday’s announcement was turning red lines into a white flag, and David Davis has made that so clear in his resignation letter,” Rees-Mogg said.

    Hooyah’ — Jubilation as boys confirmed rescued from flooded Thai cave-General in charge of rescue effort says extracting 4 remaining boys and their soccer coach could take multiple operations-By KAWEEWIT KAEWJINDA and STEPHEN WRIGHT-TOI-JUL 10,18

    MAE SAI, Thailand (AP) — Eight of the 12 boys trapped in a flooded and labyrinth cave system in far northern Thailand are safe and recuperating in a hospital, after another four were brought out by divers on the second day of a high-stakes rescue operation, a top official said.The boys brought out of the dark, winding cave on Monday are “safe and conscious,” said Chiang Rai province acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is in charge of the rescue effort. Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha was visiting all eight in the nearby hospital that they were helicoptered to, he said.Monday’s operation began at 11 a.m. and took nine hours, two fewer than Sunday, with rescuers helped by the experience they have accumulated, Narongsak told a news conference punctuated with rounds of applause.“We have more operating personnel. And we have more expertise than yesterday,” he said.But rescuing the remaining five people, who include the boys’ 25-year-old soccer coach, could take more than one operation, Narongsak said.The urgent and dangerous effort has involved the boys diving through the cave’s tight and twisting passages, guided by experienced divers.The Facebook page of the Thai Navy SEALs, who have been central to the rescue operation, was updated Monday night to say “two days, eight boars” — a reference to the Wild Boars, the name of the boys’ soccer team. The message, like most posted by the SEALs, ended with the fighting cheer adopted from the US Navy: Hooyah.Authorities have been rushing to extract the boys, ages 11-16, and their coach from the cave as the annual monsoon bears down on the mountainous region in far northern Chiang Rai province. Workers have been laboring around the clock to pump water out of the cave, and authorities said Monday that heavy downpours overnight did not raise water levels inside.Earlier Monday, Narongsak said the four rescued the day before were in good spirits.“This morning, they said they were hungry and wanted to eat khao pad grapao,” he said, referring to a Thai dish of meat fried with chili and basil, and served over rice.Still, the four were undergoing medical checks in a hospital in Chiang Rai city, the provincial capital, and were not yet allowed close contact with relatives, due to fear of infections. Relatives were able to see them through a glass partition, Narongsak said.The boys and their coach went exploring in the massive Tham Luang Nang Non cave on June 23 after a soccer practice, and were cut off when a rainstorm flooded the cave. A massive international search operation was launched and it took 10 days to locate the boys, who had taken shelter on a dry slope, deep in the complex.The search and rescue operation has riveted people in Thailand and internationally, with journalists from across the globe traveling to this town along the border with Myanmar to report on the ordeal.Authorities have said extracting the entire team from the cave could take up to four days, but two straight days of success raised hopes that it could be done faster.Monday’s mission involved 18 divers from Thailand and abroad.Narongsak said rescuers would meet Monday evening to plan for the next operation. “We believe that we can do even better and it will be a 100 percent success,” he said.“The divers that were assembled from many countries are proud to have conducted this operation until its success,” Narongsak said. “Some of them had gone to rest, some others are preparing for the next operation.”The perilous rescues have involved two divers accompanying each of the boys, all of whom have been learning to dive only since July 2, when searchers found them.Cave rescue experts have said they consider an underwater escape to be a last resort, especially with people untrained in diving.The death Friday of a former Thai navy SEAL underscored the risks. The diver, the first fatality of the rescue effort, was working in a volunteer capacity and died on a mission to place air canisters along the passage to where the boys are, necessary for divers to safely travel the five- to six-hour route.There were several concerns that prompted authorities to move forward with the plan to dive the boys out. One was that it was unknown how safe and dry the area where they had taken shelter would stay, as Thailand’s rainy season, which lasts until at least late October, picks up pace.Another and perhaps more worrying concern was that oxygen levels in the complex were falling close to dangerous levels.

    Meet the Regina woman about to be ordained as bishop of a church that defies Catholic doctrine-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-July 10, 2018

    The pain from a lifetime of being told a path to priesthood didn't exist for women is the driving force behind a Regina woman's journey to becoming the Canadian bishop of the Roman Catholic Womenpriests (RCWP).Jane Kryzanowski is past retirement age, and has long been inspired by the RCWP's acceptance of women in roles that the traditional Roman Catholic church doctrine rejects, and which Pope Francis has upheld.RCWP Canada is a grassroots women's ministry that ordains women priests on the basis that the Roman Catholic church currently discriminates against women."The whole thing of oppression, suppression, repression of the call of God to women in the Roman Catholic church is very, very painful," Kryzanowski told CBC's Saskatchewan Weekend.The first time she saw women priests get ordained into the RCWP was an ground-shaking moment for Kryzanowski. But up until 2012 she left it to the RCWP to lead the charge in changing women's roles in the Catholic church.That year, Kryzanowski attended a speech by Marie Bouclin, the only Canadian bishop of the RCWP. Bouclin's story felt much the same as Kryzanowski's, and led her to weep when the two talked."It was like this call I had known was there for so many years, was finally exposed again, finally broken open. But also the pain of this never having been a dream that could have been fulfilled," Kryzanowski said..Kryzanowski will take over from Bouclin when she retires later this month. But her path to becoming the new Canadian bishop has been a long and emotional one because, for decades, she bottled up what she describes as a "calling by God" to become a priest.'Who of you wants to be a priest?'Kryzanowski was in elementary school the first time she discovered that the priesthood she coveted was unattainable to women within the traditional Roman Catholic church. A priest had come into her class and asked, "Who of you wants to be a priest?"Kryzanowski's hand shot up, only for the priest to quickly say that only men become priests and that women instead become nuns.So, instead she became a nun.Kryzanowski ended up leaving the convent after eight years, then trying to reassess what her calling.She stayed on working with the Catholic church despite struggling with how it restricts the role of women."That was my spiritual home. That was where I grew up; that was what I knew," she said.In the early 2000s, Kryzanowski worked in a Regina Catholic church. She was doing almost all tasks that a priest would do — except for administering sacraments. It stung for her to not be able to do it all."The question was always, why is this?" she asked."That was very painful for me. There just was no solid theological argument that ever satisfied me when people tried to say this is why you can't be a priest."But a pivotal moment came in 2002, when she saw seven women ordained as Roman Catholic Womenpriests in Germany along the Danube River."It felt that, 'wow, the time has come for this,'" Kryzanowski said.It took another decade, and her emotional moment with Bouclin before Kryzanowski sought priesthood herself and was ordained as a priest within the RCWP.She was priest at a home church in Regina that's one of nine Catholic churches in Canada presided over by RCWPs, according to the group's website.From priest to bishop-Kryzanowski is now taking over the role of the woman who initially inspired her to take that leap of faith.The RCWP community has chosen Kryzanowski has Bouclin's replacement.Kryzanowski said her new job is to "be the pastor to the pastors." She will be a point of contact for them and their communities and support the pastors in whatever way they need.Further to that, Kryzanowski will be a voice to make the concerns of marginalized people known to a wider audience.She is already passionate about justice for women in the church, addressing abuse of women and children by clergy, and wants to make connections with the LGBTQ and Indigenous communities."People on the margins are the people where we really do reach out," Kryzanowski said, noting one of the RCWP priests serves in Vancouver's downtown East Side.Kryzanowski said she has strong women from the Bible to guide her in the pursuit of justice."This is where I am called. This is who I am and what I am to do even in my dying days," she said.

    Seismologists should watch words when talking earthquakes, paper argues-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-July 9, 2018

    A Canadian seismologist is urging his colleagues to be more careful with their word choices when talking about earthquakes.That message is the focus of a new paper by Geological Survey of Canada seismologist Maurice Lamontagne and his co-author Christine Goulet, aptly titled: Not Everyone Likes to Hear You Say, 'Earthquakes Are Fun.'In the paper, Lamontagne and Goulet note that major seismic events can be exciting to scientists, but that they should be mindful when speaking to the public about them, because such events can often be devastating for the people experiencing them.If they don't, Lamontagne said, scientists risk hurting their credibility and alienating people."We have to show people that we care about them so that they will start listening to what we have to say about aspects like earthquake preparedness, for example," Lamontagne said."We have to remain frank, but also people can connect to you if you show empathy, not only your scientific knowledge."A world away-In the world of social media and the 24-hour news cycle, Lamontagne says earth scientists are often asked to comment about seismic events happening on the other side of the world, which can get them into trouble if they're not careful.In the paper, Lamontagne and Goulet cite such an example involving a foreign geologist who made comments on a major 2011 earthquake in New Zealand."What you say locally is communicated worldwide," Lamontagne said.But it's not just their own credibility scientists should be worried about, Lamontage says; they can combine scientific knowledge with empathy to provide not just information but emotional relief to people who have experienced trauma.Lamontagne first realized this in 1988 after an earthquake in the Saguenay region of Quebec, where he found himself attending post-earthquake meetings in person."After that I realized that, yes, we can talk about scientific aspects, but we can adapt our messages to be of greater use to the people," he said.Focus on the positives-In practical terms, Lamontange says this means verbally acknowledging the trauma of people who have experienced the earthquake in question, and reminding them of resources like counselling.In the paper, Lamontange and Goulet cite research on communicating with people under high stress.For example, people under high stress tend to remember less of what they are told, and tend to focus more on negative messages than positive ones. They recommend bearing this in mind when commenting publicly on major earthquakes."Our credibility will not be based only on the number of diplomas we have," Lamontagne said. "It will be dependent on how we can relate to how people are feeling."With files from CBC Radio One's On the Island.

    Forest fire puts northeastern Ontario community under state of emergency-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-July 10, 2018

    A forest fire has put people around the northeastern Ontario community of Temagami on evacuation alert, with residents being told to be ready to leave at a moment's notice.The fire that was sparked by a lightning strike Sunday southwest of the town has already seen the forced evacuation of 20 homes in Temagami Shores, about 100 kilometres north of North Bay. An evacuation of nearby provincial parks, including of Finlayson Point and Marten River, has also occurred.Dan O'Mara, acting mayor of Temagami, said the town has declared a state of emergency and has opened the arena in Temagami North for anyone who needs a place to stay.People don't know what to expect, he said Monday morning."I think one of the issues last night was there was a fair amount of kind of a white, smoky haze in the community," he said. "And some of the seniors, we were concerned about. And we had people out just checking in and making sure that everybody was fine."Kim Krech, co-owner of Temagami Marine on Inlet Bay, said a fire broke out Sunday about two kilometres from the business."Right now we are in an evacuation. We are not supposed to be here but I have to look out for my livelihood."She said the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry set up sprinklers on all their buildings and fire crews from Temagami and Cobalt were wetting the property around it."I'm very scared by I'm trying to stay calm," says Krech. "Not just our livelihood but those who work for us. It is a big part of  Temagami."Daniel Thompson, who owns Gramp's Place, a bait and tackle shop along Highway 11 south of Temagami, said "most people booted it for home yesterday.""Since they were camping in the area, a lot of people left."Marten River and Finlayson Point provincial parks were both evacuated Sunday.'So smoky in front of my house'-Smoke from the fire is visible at Mowatt Landing Cottages, north of Temagami.Owner Trevor Graydon has offered his cottages to people leaving from any active fires in the area."It is so smoky in front of my house, and I'm 30 kilometres from the fire," he said.​The OPP and nearby local fire departments have been working with the ministry to beat back the fire."The situation with the fire itself looked good [Sunday] night," said O'Mara. "The concern this morning is the wind and to try and maintain that. I guess there is a concern that depending on which was the wind's blowing [it] could add other issues this morning."Residents of Temagami could be asked to leave if conditions worsen, the OPP said.The ministry says the fire, started by a lightning strike, is now approximately 25 hectares in size.Highway 11 is open, but provincial police are asking people to avoid the area because of smoke.They say the highway could close at any point if visibility becomes an issue.

    Torrential rains kill at least 88 in western Japan-[Reuters]-By Kiyoshi Takenaka and Issei Kato-YAHOONEWS-July 9, 2018

    KURASHIKI, Japan (Reuters) - The death toll from torrential rain and landslides in western Japan rose to 88 people early on Monday, with dozens still missing after the rescue of more than 2,000 stranded in the city of Kurashiki.Evacuation orders were in place for nearly 2 million people and landslide warnings were issued in many prefectures.In hard-hit western Japan, emergency services and military personnel used helicopters and boats to rescue people from swollen rivers and buildings, including a hospital.Scores of staff and patients, some still in their pajamas, were rescued from the isolated Mabi Memorial Hospital in boats rowed by members of Japan's Self Defence Forces.A city official said late on Sunday that 170 patients and staff had been evacuated, while public broadcaster NHK later said about 80 people were still stranded."I'm most grateful to the rescuers," said Shigeyuki Asano, a 79-year-old patient who spent a night without electricity or water. "I feel so relieved that I am now liberated from such a bad-smelling, dark place."Kurashiki, with a population of just under 500,000, was among the hardest hit by rains that pounded many parts of western Japan, with the death toll exceeding the 77 killed in heavy rains and landslides in 2014 and the highest since a typhoon that killed 98 people in 2004.Television footage showed a massive rescue operation, with 2,310 rescued in the city by evening, according to NHK, while search-and-rescue teams looked for others.LANDSLIDES-The overall death toll from the rains in Japan rose to at least 88 after floodwaters forced several million people from their homes, NHK reported early on Monday.An additional 58 were missing, NHK said, and more rain was set to hit some areas for at least another day.The rain set off landslides and flooded rivers, trapping many people in their houses or on rooftops."This is a situation of extreme danger," an official at the Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA), told a news conference.A 3-year-old girl whose home was hit by a landslide in Hiroshima prefecture was found dead by a search team."It's very painful," said one elderly man watching nearby. "I have a granddaughter the same age. If it were her, I wouldn't be able to stop crying."Japan's government set up an emergency management center at the prime minister's office and some 54,000 rescuers from the military, police and fire departments were dispatched across a wide swath of western and southwestern Japan.-'SUDDEN DISASTER'-"There are still many people missing and others in need of help, we are working against time," Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Sunday morning.Two sisters from an elementary school of just six pupils on the small island of Nuwa in Ehime prefecture were among the dead. The younger, a first-grader, was a star and the hope of the depopulated island, the principal told NHK."It was such a sudden disaster, I just cannot come to grips with it," the principal said.Emergency warnings for severe rain in 11 prefectures - the most since a new warning system was introduced in 2013 - had been lifted by evening, but advisories for heavy rain and landslides remained in effect in many areas.TV footage showed convenience stores with shelves mostly bare while elsewhere, residents lined up to receive water. Some 276,000 households were without water supply, Kyodo said.Roads were closed and train services suspended in parts of western Japan, while Shinkansen bullet-train services resumed on a limited schedule after being suspended on Friday.The rain began late last week as the remnants of a typhoon fed into a seasonal rainy front.Automakers including Mazda Motor Corp <7261 .t="#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000"> and Daihatsu Motor Co suspended operations at several plants on Saturday and had yet to decide on plans for the coming week.Electronics maker Panasonic Corp <6752 .t="#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000"> said one plant in Okayama, western Japan, could not be reached because of road closures, although it had been closed for the weekend anyway. A decision about next week would be made on Monday, it said.(Reporting by Kiyoshi Takenaka and Issei Kato; Additional reporting by Junko Fujita, Makiko Yamazaki, Maki Shiraki and William Mallard; Writing by Elaine Lies and Linda Sieg; Editing by Darren Schuettler, Jason Neely and Peter Cooney)

    Turkey’s Erdogan begins new term with enhanced powers-Turkish president to be feted at his palace by leaders of Venezuela, Sudan and Qatar a day after mass purge of state employees-By Raziye AKKOC and Stuart Williams-TOI-JUL 10,18

    ANKARA, Turkey (AFP) — Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was sworn in for his second term as head of state on Monday, taking on greater powers than any Turkish leader for decades under a new system condemned by opponents as a one-man regime.Erdogan, who has transformed Turkey in 15 years of rule by allowing Islam a greater role in public life and boosting its international stature, took his oath in parliament for a five-year term after his June election victory.“I swear upon my honor before the great Turkish nation that I will work impartially to fulfill the duty I have taken on,” Erdogan said in his oath.The inauguration was to be followed by a lavish ceremony at his palace on Monday evening attended by dozens of world leaders marking the transition to the new executive presidency system.Erdogan will face immediate challenges posed by an imbalanced if fast-growing economy and foreign policy tensions between the West and Turkey, a NATO member.He has also pledged to end the state of emergency that has been in place since the failed July 2016 coup and which has seen the biggest purge in the history of modern Turkey.In what appeared to be the final emergency decree issued just one day before the inauguration, 18,632 public sector employees were ordered dismissed including thousands of soldiers and police officers.Erdogan will this week immediately turn to foreign policy, visiting northern Cyprus and Azerbaijan followed by more challenging encounters at a NATO summit in Brussels where he will meet his US counterpart Donald Trump and other leaders.One-man regime’-The new system, which dispenses with the office of prime minister, was agreed in a bitterly fought 2017 referendum narrowly won by the “Yes” camp. The issue is still polarizing in Turkey.“A partisan one-man regime starts officially today,” said the opposition Cumhuriyet newspaper.Its commentator Asli Aydintasbas wrote: “I don’t think it would be an exaggeration to say that we entered a ‘second republic’ era,” after the republic set up by Turkey’s secular founder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.But the pro-government daily Yeni Safak wrote under the headline “historic day”: “One page is closing in Turkish history and a new page is opening.”The president now sits at the top of a vertical power structure marked by a slimmed-down government with 16 ministries instead of 26 and multiple bodies reporting to him.In one of the most significant changes, the EU affairs ministry, set up in 2011 to oversee Turkey’s faltering bid to join the bloc, is being subsumed into the foreign ministry.Prime Minister Binali Yildirim now goes down in history as the 27th and final holder of the post in Turkey. He is expected to become speaker of the new parliament.-‘Leader of multi-polar world’-The transition ceremony later Monday, to be attended by some 10,000 guests and marked by dozens of gun salutes, has been overshadowed by a deadly train derailment in northwest Turkey on Sunday that left 24 dead.Those attending will include Ankara’s top allies from Africa, the Middle East and the former Soviet Union but relatively few European figures.Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will attend, in a new sign of the warm ties between Ankara and Moscow, as will Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, regarded with disdain by Washington but an ally of Erdogan.Tweeting a video apparently showing himself driving to the airport, Maduro hailed Erdogan as a “friend of Venezuela and leader of the new multi-polar world.”Tenemos las mejores relaciones de cooperación diplomática y económica con el hermano pueblo de Turquía para el bienestar de nuestros pueblos. https://t.co/SeDDvikBk2 pic.twitter.com/RwYWYzI4Tf— Nicolás Maduro (@NicolasMaduro) July 9, 2018-Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir is on the guest list as is Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani of Qatar, Turkey’s closest ally in the Middle East. The only EU leaders are set to be Bulgarian President Rumen Radev and Hungary’s strongman Prime Minister Viktor Orban.-‘Surprise cabinet’-The new cabinet, due to be announced Monday evening, is expected to have a different look, with pro-government Hurriyet daily columnist Abdulkadir Selvi saying that it was set to “surprise” with figures from outside the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP).Current Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu could in theory continue in his job but reports have said Erdogan may choose his spokesman, Ibrahim Kalin, or even spy chief Hakan Fidan to succeed him.The markets will keep a close eye on economic appointments, keen to see a steady hand at the helm in a fast-growing economy dogged by double-digit inflation and a widening current account deficit.Erdogan, who first came to power as premier in 2003, won an outright victory in June 24 polls, defeating his closest rival, Muharrem Ince of the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) which is now locked in internal battles over its future direction.The AKP failed to win a majority in legislative elections and will need support from its allies in the right-wing Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) who could push it into more hardline policies.

    Harsh words may mean North Korea seeking deal with Trump-US officials were surprised at fiery statement from Pyongyang following bilateral talks, but many see it as a negotiating tactic-By KEN MORITSUGU-TOI-JUL 10,18

    TOKYO, Japan (AP) — North Korea’s vitriolic criticism of the United States following a first round of nuclear negotiations went out of its way to spare one person: US President Donald Trump.In a statement issued just hours after the two-day talks finished on Saturday, North Korea accused the US side of a “unilateral and gangster-like demand for denuclearization,” then added, “We still cherish our good faith in President Trump.”On one level, the sheen of last month’s Singapore summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, with broad smiles and handshakes, has yet to wear off. But on another, North Korea may be betting that Trump, the real estate developer-turned-president, will be more willing than his negotiators to ease off his administration’s hard-line positions to make a deal.It fell to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to get the talks going last week. The mood appeared cordial, even jovial, during his two days in Pyongyang. He and the head of the North Korean negotiating team, Kim Yong Chol, cracked jokes during a working dinner, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said. On the airport tarmac Saturday before he left, Pompeo sounded positive, saying “we made progress on almost all of the central issues.”So it came as some surprise when North Korea’s state news agency fired out a late-night missive blasting the talks, warning that “we may be shaken in our unshakeable will for denuclearization, rather than consolidating trust.”The statement was widely seen as a negotiating tactic to put the US on the back foot as talks get underway. It also underscores crucial gaps in how the US and North Korea define denuclearization and see the path forward. Unless they can close those gaps, the whole effort may be doomed.The 1,200-word statement, attributed to an unnamed Foreign Ministry spokesman, outlined North Korean thinking at length.It said North Korea put forth several constructive proposals, including a declaration formally ending the 1950-53 Korean War, which it called “the first process of defusing tension.” The statement called for a series of simultaneous actions from both sides, including exchanges to improve relations, the dismantling of a North Korean missile-engine testing ground and talks to return the remains of American soldiers killed in the Korean War.Pompeo acknowledged at a news conference in Tokyo on Sunday that a peace treaty, security assurances for North Korea and denuclearization should be pursued in parallel, but it’s the last item that has been the clear focus of US efforts and its overriding goal: The elimination of North Korea’s nuclear weapons in a way that can be verified by outside experts.North Korea hasn’t said publicly what security assurances it would need to get rid of its nuclear weapons, but in the past they have included the withdrawal of the 28,500 US troops stationed in South Korea and an end to US-South Korean military drills.Trump suspended some upcoming joint drills in a goodwill gesture after his summit with Kim, causing some consternation among experts about the impact on both countries’ military readiness. North Korea, in its post-Pompeo talks statement, played down the importance of the move, describing it as a “highly reversible step which can be resumed anytime at any moment as all of its military force remains intact in its previously held positions.”Suspending the drills cannot be compared, the statement said, with North Korea’s irreversible destruction of an underground nuclear testing site — though some US analysts have questioned the importance of that move, which was more symbolic than anything else given the relative ease with which new tunnels could be dug and the progress North Korea has already made in developing explosive nuclear devices.Perception gaps? Negotiating points? The larger question is whether North Korea really intends to surrender its nuclear weapons entirely. Some analysts think North Korea is trying to drag out talks in hopes that the US will come around to accepting it as a nuclear weapons state, perhaps in a limited form that couldn’t threaten the US mainland directly.That’s where Trump comes in. Pompeo said in Tokyo that the US and its allies remain committed to the goal of a fully verified, final denuclearization of North Korea. But for political considerations, including the fight for control of Congress in November elections, would Trump make a deal? If not, his high-stakes North Korea gambit could join a long list of failed nuclear deals with Pyongyang.

    Kremlin says ‘absurd’ to link it to UK woman’s death from nerve agent-Presidential spokesman dismisses suggestion by Russian envoy to OPCW that poisoning meant to derail Trump-Putin summit-By AFP-TOI-JUL 10,18

    MOSCOW, Russia — The Kremlin on Monday said it would be “absurd” to suggest Russia was involved in the death of a British woman exposed to the Novichok nerve agent.“We don’t know that Russia has been mentioned or associated with this,” President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. “We consider that in any case it would be quite absurd.”It was the Kremlin’s first reaction to the poisoning of two British citizens exposed to Novichok near Salisbury in England, where former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned in March.That poisoning sparked a tense diplomatic row between London and Moscow.Peskov added that “we of course very much regret the death of the British citizen.”Dawn Sturgess and Charlie Rowley were taken to hospital last weekend from a house in the town of Amesbury, around 12 kilometers (eight miles) from Salisbury, and were found to have been exposed to Novichok.Police announced Sturgess’s death on Sunday.Russia is “deeply concerned by the continuing appearance of these poisonous substances on British territory,” which “present a danger not just for the British but for all Europeans,” Peskov said.Russia has denied any involvement in the poisoning of Skripal and his daughter Yulia with a nerve agent that was developed in the Soviet Union.Both the Skripals have now been released from hospital and are living in a secret location.Putin has said that if a military-grade nerve agent had been used against them, the victims would have died.Peskov on Monday denied a suggestion by Russia’s representative to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) Alexander Shulgin that the incident appeared to be designed to damage preparations for a meeting between Putin and US President Donald Trump in Helsinki this mont

Nine firefighting teams were at the scene, with the support of four firefighting aircraft.A second fire was reported near Kibbutz Nir Am.Officials said there was no current danger to the communities themselves.Recent months have seen an uptick in violence at the Gaza border, with weekly violent Palestinian protests, ongoing rocket attacks, and the new phenomenon of incendiary kites and balloons flown over the border, sometimes at a rate of several dozen each day.The incendiary devices have sparked near-daily fires that have burned thousands of acres of farmland, parks, and forests. Some have been found connected to explosive devices.On Friday police launched a campaign urging children to stay away from any unknown kites, balloons, or drones they may find on the ground this summer.On Friday thousands of Israelis took part in a rally near Gaza calling for the return of the bodies of IDF soldiers held by Hamas.Some 4,000 people took part in the Israeli event, waving Israeli flags and flying blue kites in a peaceful counter to the flaming airborne devices launched at Israel in recent months from Gaza.Separately Friday, a few thousand Palestinians participated in the weekly “March of Return” protests on the Gaza border. One was reported killed when a device he was holding exploded.

    Abbas adviser compares Israeli security at Temple Mount to Nazism, Inquisition-Mahmoud Habbash laments restrictions on Muslim access to Al-Aqsa Mosque: 'Are they trying to do to others what was done to them?'-By TOI staff-JUL 9,18

    A religious affairs adviser to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas compared Israel’s security measures for Muslims at the Temple Mount compound to those employed against Jews during the Spanish Inquisition and the Holocaust.In remarks last week on Palestine TV, Mahmoud Habbash lamented restrictions on access to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which sits on the holy site known in Arabic as Haram al-Sharif.“There are roadblocks, restrictions, closure of the gates, road closures, and age restrictions… People who are under 40 years of age are not allowed to pray,” Habbash said, according to a translation provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute.“Dear God! What is this? What historical age are we living in?” said Habbash, also the PA’s supreme Sharia judge. “In the days of the Inquisition? Are they trying to do to others what was done to them in the ghettos, in the Inquisition courts, or in the Nazi courts? Is this or is this not the Inquisition?”“It is an Israeli Zionist Inquisition, which is trying to violate one’s human dignity, and the dignity of religious belief and of human faith in God,” the PA official concluded.The Temple Mount houses the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa mosque, and is considered Islam’s third holiest site. It is the holiest place in Judaism, revered by Jews as the location of the Jewish Temples.Under the present arrangement instituted by Israel after it captured Jerusalem’s Old City in 1967, the site remains under Jordan’s religious custodianship. Jews are allowed to visit the compound under the existing arrangements but are barred from religious worship or prayer.Israel does not restrict access for Muslims in Israel, including East Jerusalem, to the site. It has sometimes closed the area to men under 40 at times of high security alert, but has not done so recently. It does routinely maintain restrictions on West Bank Palestinians entering the country, amid its overall security procedures.Israel and Jordan signed a peace accord in 1994, but relations have long been cold.Last July the holy site became the focus of a major crisis between Israeli authorities, Palestinians, and Jordan over security measures taken at the entrances to the compound. Metal detectors and cameras were installed following a deadly attack in which three Arab Israelis emerged from the site and shot dead two Israeli police officers using weapons that had been smuggled onto the Temple Mount. The upgraded security measures were all ultimately removed.Early last year Habbash warned that the Trump administration’s plans — since realized — to move the US embassy to Jerusalem were “a declaration of war on all Muslims.”

    Duterte vows to resign if anybody can prove God exists in a selfie-Days after calling God 'stupid,' controversial Philippine president implores heavily Catholic nation to produce photographic evidence of the divine-By AP-JUL 9,18-TOI

    MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine president, who recently sparked outrage for calling God stupid, has courted new controversy in his largely Roman Catholic country by saying he will resign if anybody can prove that God exists.President Rodrigo Duterte, who has had a thorny relationship with the church, questioned anew in a speech late Friday some of the basic tenets of the Catholic faith, including the concept of original sin, which he said taints even innocent infants and can only be removed through baptism in a church for a fee.“Where is the logic of God there?” Duterte asked in a speech at the opening of a science and technology event in southern Davao city.The 73-year-old leader said that if there’s “one single witness” who can prove, perhaps with a picture or a selfie that a human was “able to talk [with] and to see God,” he will immediately resign.Duterte, however, suggested that there must be a God or a supreme being that prevents billions of stars and celestial bodies from colliding in a frequency that could have long threatened the human race.Last week, he was slammed, including by some of his political allies, for calling God “stupid” in another speech, with one Catholic bishop calling him a “psychopath.”Duterte lamented in that speech that Adam and Eve’s sin in Christian theology resulted in all the faithful falling from divine grace.“Who is this stupid God? This son of a bitch is then really stupid,” he said last week. “You were not involved but now you’re stained with an original sin … What kind of a religion is that? That’s what I can’t accept, very stupid proposition.”Opposition Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV shot back at Duterte by describing him as “one evil man” and his remarks as “very much consistent with the deceitfulness, heartlessness, and ruthlessness of his policies.Presidential spokesman Harry Roque has defended his remarks, saying Duterte has the right to express his opinion on religion and cited the president’s previous disclosure that he was once sexually abused by a priest.Duterte on Friday recalled that experience, when he said he and other students were fondled by a foreign Jesuit priest, who has since died.Amid the criticisms, officials have arranged a meeting between Duterte and the head of the largest association of Catholic bishops on Monday. Filipino bishops opened an annual conference in Manila Saturday and were expected to address Duterte’s tirades when they conclude their meeting on Monday.Some Catholic bishops have been critical of Duterte’s brutal crackdown against illegal drugs, which have left thousands of suspects dead in reported clashes with the police, along with his vulgar and expletive-laden speeches. He once called Pope Francis a “son of a bitch” for sparking a monstrous traffic jam during a 2015 visit in Manila that trapped Duterte for hours.

    Fire likely cause of 2016 EgyptAir crash, French investigators say-Information acquired from flight recorders suggests blaze broke out and spread rapidly, 'causing the loss of control of the aircraft'; officials suspect phone or tablet to blame-By AFP-TOI-JUL 9,18

    French investigators said Friday a cockpit fire likely caused the 2016 EgyptAir MS804 crash that claimed the lives of 66 passengers and crew, contradicting Egyptian authorities who said explosives traces were found on the victims’ remains.France’s civil aviation accident bureau, known by its French acronym BEA, said that information gleaned from the flight recorders suggested that “a fire broke out in the cockpit while the plane was at cruising altitude and the fire spread rapidly, causing the loss of control of the aircraft.”The Airbus A320 was flying from Paris to Cairo on May 19, 2016 when it crashed into the southeastern Mediterranean, killing 66 people, including 40 Egyptians and 15 French citizens.French investigators had always leaned towards a mechanical fault as the cause of the crash, saying they suspected that a mobile phone or tablet had caught fire.An official Egyptian investigation suggested the plane had been bombed, claiming traces of explosives had been found on the victims’ remains. But a source close to the French investigation previously said no such traces were found by the team.The BEA said the crew could be heard discussing a fire on the cockpit voice recorder and that the plane’s automatic ACARS messaging system had flagged up smoke on board.It said it was waiting for Egypt to publish its final report into the crash to understand how the two countries arrived at a different conclusion.Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.

    Pope denounces ‘complicit silence’ on Mideast attacks against Christians-Francis and Orthodox patriarchs pray for peace in region 'covered by dark clouds of war, violence and destruction'-By Trisha Thomas and Nicole Winfield-TOI-JUL 9,18

    BARI, Italy (AP) — Pope Francis denounced the “complicit silence” that has allowed violence to consume the Middle East and drive tens of thousands of Christians from their homes, during a remarkable gathering Saturday of Orthodox patriarchs and Catholic leaders united in praying for peace in the region.Francis hosted the daylong ecumenical service in the symbolically rich Adriatic port city of Bari, considered a bridge between East and West and home to the relics of St. Nicholas, an important saint in the Orthodox world.Francis greeted the patriarchs outside the Basilica of St. Nicholas and together they descended to the crypt to pray before the relics and light a flame for peace symbolizing the unity of Christians.For years, the Vatican has voiced concern about the plight of Christians driven from Mideast communities that date to the time of Christ. Just last week, Francis decried intensified attacks in southern Syria that killed scores of people and forced tens of thousands to flee.In his opening prayer, Francis said the Middle East represented the source of Christianity, where ancient Christian rites and heritage are preserved and where “our very souls are rooted.”And yet, in recent years the region has been “covered by dark clouds of war, violence and destruction, instances of occupation and varieties of fundamentalism, forced migration and neglect,” he said.“All this has taken place amid the complicit silence of many,” he lamented. “The Middle East has become a land of people who leave their own lands behind.”In a prayer service punctuated by haunting Arabic chant and Catholic hymn, Francis said the Orthodox and Catholic leaders wanted to give voice to those who have none.“Indifference kills, and we desire to lift up our voices in opposition to this murderous indifference,” he said. “For the Middle East today is weeping, suffering and silent as others trample upon those lands in search of power or riches.”Among the patriarchs on hand was the spiritual leader of the world’s Orthodox Christians, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, as well as patriarchs from ancient churches of Alexandria, Antioch and Jerusalem. Notably absent from the gathering was Patriarch Kirill, head of the Russian Orthodox Church, which has been a strong supporter of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s military intervention in Syria. Kirill sent his deputy, Metropolitan Hilarion.

    Spain emerges as EU's new weak link for Africa migration-[Reuters]-By Sonya Dowsett, Ahmed Eljechtimi and Gabriela Baczynska-YAHOONEWS-July 9, 2018

    TARIFA, Spain/RABAT/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Spain has become the new main entry point for asylum-seekers fleeing Africa, an influx that European Union officials fear could exacerbate political tensions across the region over migration.Around 19,000 asylum-seekers arrived in Spain in the first five months of this year, almost as many as arrived there in all of 2017, eclipsing for the first time the numbers flowing through north Africa to Italy.The surge has intensified in recent weeks as Italy's new government shut its ports to most asylum-seekers, rescue officials say.With the EU struggling to contain dissent over migration policy, some officials in Brussels say they worry that Spain could become a new flash-point, even as overall numbers of arrivals into Europe from Africa are in sharp decline."We must not let it blow up," an EU diplomat said.He said the Morocco-Spain route had been kept under control for years. "It's not dramatic for now, but we are keeping an eye on this one."Spain's new socialist prime minister, Pedro Sanchez, has been welcoming, and accepted two boat-loads of asylum-seekers denied port entry by Italy even as the number of boats from Morocco also rose.The asylum-seekers are arriving in mostly inflatable boats each week, often without enough fuel for the crossing, straining Spain's coastguard. Madrid is training more lifeguards to deal with the rising numbers, coastguard union officials say.People-smugglers in Morocco use a rights activist to contact the coastguard, advising it when boats set off for Spain, said coastguard official Oriol Estrada."The people traffickers know that the lifeguards are going to come for them," said Estrada, whose vessel has rescued around 1,200 people so far this year, more than 80 percent of its total for 2017."They call to say that a certain boat has left such-and-such a coast at a certain time with however many people. They even give the names of those aboard."A similar situation developed off Libya before Rome's recent crackdown, prompting Italy's ruling League party to accuse rescue ships of running a "taxi service".-'I WANT TO GO TO EUROPE'-Rescue officials working in the Strait of Gibraltar say more Asian migrants from countries like Pakistan and Sri Lanka are also crossing, another sign that smuggling networks are focusing more of their efforts on Spain.Morocco is a destination in itself for those fleeing poverty and violence in sub-Saharan Africa, but it has become more of a stepping stone as people determined to reach Europe realize the Libya-Italy route may be worse than futile, refugees say."In Libya I saw migrants being fired at with live ammunition. A friend of mine was killed in front of my eyes by a Libyan teenager," said Guinea migrant Oumar Dialo, who tried and failed to reach Europe via Libya before ending up in Morocco."I would never recommend Libya even to my enemy."Speaking in Rabat, Dialo said he had tried to reach Spain by crossing a fence on the border of Morocco and Spain's north African enclave of Ceuta, but fell and broke his leg. He said he would try to reach Spain again when the time was right, to pursue his dream of becoming a professional roller-skater."I want to go to Europe because I want to help my family and become a professional roller," he said.Morocco said it was boosting efforts to counter illegal immigration this summer, the busiest time for sea crossings."Morocco is committed to cooperating with its partners in the fight against illegal migration," government spokesperson Mustapha El Khalfi said.EU officials in Brussels are struggling to agree on a joint response to migration to calm tensions in Italy and Germany. Leaders signaled their concerns over Spain last week when they reached a new accord on the issue, pledging to support Madrid and Morocco to stem the tide.A Spanish government spokesman told Reuters the arrivals trend started more than a year ago and was not a result of any one factor. He added Spain is pushing for policy in Europe to be harmonized, however.There are early signs that Sanchez might feel political pressure to toughen his approach if the influx continues to pick up speed.Fernando Maura, foreign policy spokesman for the center-right opposition Ciudadanos party, said the prime minister's current approach risked creating a "pull factor"."When you send out a signal of this kind, it could well be received by those who want to come to Europe," he said.(This story was corrected to delete reference to record year in paragraph two.)(Additional reporting by Steve Scherer in ROME; Editing by Mark Bendeich and Sonya Hepinstall)

    38 dead, nearly 50 reported missing as heavy rain hits Japan-People flee to rooftops and balconies, waving furiously at hovering rescue helicopters-By YURI KAGEYAMA-TOI-JUL 9,18

    TOKYO (AP) — Torrents of rainfall and flooding battered a widespread area in southwestern Japan on Saturday, with local media casualty reports climbing quickly. Public broadcaster NHK said 38 people were dead, four were injured seriously, and 47 were missing.Television footage showed a residential area in Okayama prefecture seeped in brown water spreading like a huge lake. Some people fled to rooftops and balconies and waved furiously at hovering rescue helicopters.Okayama prefecture said a man caught in a landslide died, and six others were missing. Evacuation orders had been issued to more than 360,000 people, the prefecture said in a statement.Throughout the affected areas, parked cars sat in pools of water. NHK TV said water had reached as high as 5 meters (16 feet) in the worst-hit areas.Kyodo news service, which put the death tally at 34 people, said one death was in a landslide in Hiroshima, which had set off a fire, while the body of a child was found in another area. NHK said a woman died in her home in Hiroshima when it got buried in a mudslide.Assessing overall casualties was a challenge because of the widespread damage. NHK repeatedly urged those awaiting rescue to not lose hope.In Ehime prefecture, a woman was found dead on the second floor of a home hit by a landslide, Kyodo said. Also in Ehime, two elementary-school girls and their mother, who got sucked into a mudslide, were rescued but their hearts weren’t beating, it said.Kyoto prefecture said it was working to control flooding at several dams and identified one fatality as a 52-year-old woman.Military water trucks were rushing to areas where water systems were no longer working, Okayama prefecture said. Troops in camouflage outfits helped people and pets reach dry land on small military boats.Evacuation orders or advisories were sent for 4.72 million people, and 48,000 members of the Self-Defense Forces, police, and firefighters were mobilized for search missions, according to Kyodo.

    Recovery divers in Thai boat disaster confronted by underwater tomb-Volunteers leading grim task of retrieving bodies of 41 Chinese tourists from sunken vessel, including mothers still clutching their infants-By Elizabeth Law-TOI-JUL 9,18

    PHUKET, Thailand (AFP) — A scene of horror in the hull of a sunken boat: mothers still holding babies, their bodies suspended in water as the lower lounge of the Phoenix became a tomb in one of Thailand’s worst ever sea disasters.At least 41 people died — all Chinese tourists — when the Phoenix went down in rough seas on Thursday.Fifteen people are still missing but two days later flickers of hope for miracle survivals are all but extinguished.While some 48 passengers and crew managed to flee the sinking vessel by jumping into the sea or mounting life rafts, many were trapped in the main lounge as the pleasure boat plummeted 40 meters into the Andaman Sea.“It’s difficult… it’s traumatic… as you can imagine when you find dead bodies, children, kids, in the arms of the mother in the wreck,” said Philippe Entremont, the manager of a Phuket dive shop who was helping coordinate the underwater search.“But now the best thing to do for us, our job is to find the bodies and bring them back to the families,” the Frenchman added.Dozens of rescuers — including volunteers and recreational divers — have scoured the waters for two days, in an area known for its reefs.Most of Thailand’s diving experts have been diverted to the north to a rescue operation at a flooded cave where 12 schoolboys have been trapped for two weeks.That left volunteers in Phuket leading the grim task of trying to retrieve bodies from the sunken vessel.Entremont said those going down are specially trained to dive at depth — the boat has sunk to about 47 meters.South African Dominic Robnik, who has been involved in the search on both days, called the scenes “very, very sad.”“There was a lot of debris, shoes, glass, and even personal belongings, so we had to navigate through all that,” he said.Divers were positioned every five meters so recovered bodies were slowly passed up to the surface, Robnik said, adding that he had helped move at least six bodies.One body has been particularly hard to retrieve after it was trapped by the sunken boat, the divers said, adding that they were ready to bring in specialized equipment.But late Saturday afternoon, the underwater search was stopped with the Thai navy taking over the operation.The bodies would “surface naturally” according to Rear Admiral Charoenphone Khumrasee.It is the grim reality of boat disasters, said Entremont.“Maybe in a few days’ time we’ll find them on a beach somewhere drifting away.”
