          No relief for people likely in first 100 days of PTI government       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ISLAMABAD: The incoming Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government plans to offer profitable dollar bonds to overseas Pakistanis, place China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) agreements before parliament, but is unlikely to offer any relief to the people in the first 100 days in office.

Speaking at the first formal press conference after the recent elections, the likely new finance minister Asad Umar said that offering any relief or subsidy to the people in first 100 days was like giving lollipops. He said the first 100 days would also not see a decision that would change the destiny of the nation, but a clear direction on what “we promised and where we are headed for stock-taking”.

He complained that the local and international media did not quote him accurately in recent reports about the need for $12 billion foreign financing, privatisation of 200 companies, including the Pakistan International Airlines and Pakistan Steel Mills, and so on. He said there was no discussion so far on revising budget and non-transparency in foreign loans was the real challenge.

Mr Umar said the PTI so far did not have access to real data, nor did it have any outside view of the latest situation but based on the best available information, one thing was clear that the requirement was reasonably urgent to examine all available options to finance external account. “The situation is such that we don’t have the luxury of choosing one option, but will have to plan all options in parallel, including the IMF support within six weeks.”

Asad Umar says CPEC agreements will be placed before parliament, expats to be offered profitable dollar bonds

The PTI leader said Sukuk bond, Eurobond, bilateral and multilateral options were on the table, but most importantly his party wanted to tap into overseas Pakistanis’ potential in a big way. “The Pakistanis abroad have a sentimental relationship with PTI and Imran Khan and we plan to give them debt instruments with returns better than what they are getting at present so that they could also take a pride in nation building.”

He said it could be on the pattern of dollar-denominated bond of the Central Directorate of National Savings and the people abroad also wanted its tradability. Secondly, he added, overseas Pakistanis would also be offered equity instruments, for example, in real estate, but by taking risk away from those who had bad experiences of their investments. “There is no size decided, nor market assessed” and it would depend on the situation and demand, he said in response to a question.

Mr Umar said all agreements should be transparent and placed before parliament unless some real secret was involved. He said his party had been demanding that the CPEC and LNG agreements should be presented in parliament and it would now ensure that economic decision-making was transparent.

In reply to question, he said that after a lot of efforts at the level of parliamentary committees he had been able to access the details about the CPEC agreements and there was nothing in those agreements to hide. “Yes, we will bring them before parliament to ensure transparency.”

At the same time, Mr Umar said there was no question of going back on any international commitment or reopening any agreement unless some clear wrongdoing or corruption appeared and there should not be any problem to take them up with the Chinese government which was aggressively fighting corruption which was neither in the interest of China nor Pakistan. Likewise, he said the LNG agreement with Qatar would also be presented before parliament.

He said the Chinese ambassador held a meeting with PTI chairman Imran Khan and had a follow-up session with him in which matters relating to taking the CPEC to the next level were discussed without any specific proposals. He said no loans were discussed with the Chinese, but “we have an assurance that China as a friend would stand by us”.

He criticised the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government for presenting an unrealistic budget and reckless spending for political means and borrowing heavily which had increased fiscal deficit for the last financial year to 7.1 per cent from a target of 4.1pc. “We never have such expansionary monetary and fiscal policies, while current account deficit reached an unsustainable level, from $2 billion a year when the problem started to $2 billion a month when the PML-N left.”

Mr Umar said the availability of bankable data on everything was the real challenge and even power production and supply numbers were unrealistic, adding that commercial loans were not a problem, but the problem was with transparency in all sectors and agreements.

He said the situation in Pakistan was dire at present and required tough decisions for course correction, adding that it would be unfair so say that Pakistan had never been to dire situations like this before and it came out of problems in the past and there was no reason not to overcome challenges this time.

Mr Umar claimed that no real reforms had taken place over the past five years and it was not only failure of the government but also the IMF as the two together “kept glossing over the challenges with Panadol to bring down fever instead of curing the disease with real reform”.

He said all the loss-making entities would be taken out of the control of line ministries that protected the status quo and placed under a wealth fund whose ownership would remain in the name of the president of Pakistan. There would be no need for seed money and would keep getting financing from the finance ministry as before.

He said there was no truth in reports about deals to free former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. He said the best relief for the people could be real reforms that included reduction in indirect taxes which have touched 90pc now and increase recoveries from direct taxes. He said Imran Khan would not distribute jobs in D-Chowk, but increase revenues, reduce expenditures and open up six areas for investments and job creation.

          Trump per Israele sta elaborando il "Piano del secolo"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Donald Trump ne è convinto: il suo sarà il "piano del secolo". Quello che lascerà il segno nella Storia, ciò￲ che non sono riusciti a fare, nonostante le dichiarate ambizioni, coloro - Repubblicani e Democratici - che negli ultimi cinquant'anni lo hanno preceduto alla Casa Bianca. Il "piano del secolo", ovvero come riuscire a realizzare la pace in Terrasanta, tra Israeliani e Palestinesi. A darne conto è un documentato report di Amir Tibon e Amos Harel, firme di punta del quotidiano di Tel Aviv Haaretz. I due giornalisti israeliani, hanno ascoltato diverse fonti interne ed esterne all'amministrazione Usa (Harel è corrispondente di Haaretz da Washington), e il quadro che ne viene fuori è di grande interesse. Che questo piano sia in fase di "avanzata gestazione, siamo ormai ai dettagli", lo confermano ad HuffPost sia fonti israeliane a Gerusalemme che fonti palestinesi a Ramallah. "Alla lettura del piano, l'Olp (Organizzazione per la liberazione della Palestina, ndr) sarà infelice su alcune parti e soddisfatta su altri, e così sarà anche per Israeliani, che saranno contenti per alcune pagine del documento mentre altre saranno scomode", spiega un alto funzionario dell'amministrazione Usa.

Il "piano del secolo" si discosta dai tanti che lo hanno preceduto perché, spiega ad Haaretz la fonte americana, non si limita a riproporre formule vecchie che avrebbero dovuto risolvere le "questioni fondamentali" del conflitto, come i confini, la sicurezza, Gerusalemme. Enunciazioni di principio che, nella visione dello staff mediorientale di The Donald, non hanno mai fatto veramente i conti con la realtà, e per questo sono sistematicamente falliti. Il team di pace di Trump vuole che il piano affronti tali questioni, ma anche di offrire una vasta gamma di idee pragmatiche che, secondo le parole del funzionario di alto livello, "miglioreranno la vita di entrambe le parti". Gran parte del piano si concentrerà sul rafforzamento dell'economia palestinese e dei suoi legami con Israele. Diverse fonti al di fuori dell'amministrazione che hanno parlato con Haaretz nelle ultime settimane hanno confermato che la Casa Bianca sta attualmente "limando" un documento alquanto ponderoso, "molto più lungo di alcuni piani precedenti di questo tipo", secondo una fonte diplomatica coinvolta nella stesura. discussioni. Il piano dell'amministrazione Trump comincia a prendere forma a metà del 2017, quando Jason Greeenblatt, l'inviato speciale di The Donald per il processo di pace , fa il suo primo viaggio nella regione. Le fonti che sono state in contatto con Greenblatt durante questo periodo hanno detto ad Haaretz che il principale obiettivo del suo primo viaggio era lo stretto allineamento degli interessi tra Israele e il mondo arabo, che a suo avviso rappresentava una rara opportunità per una svolta nei negoziati. E' questo un punto nodale del "piano Trump": coinvolgere i Paesi arabi che, nel quadro regionale, hanno interessi strategici convergenti con Israele.

Una fonte governativa israeliana li elenca ad HuffPost: Arabia Saudita, Qatar, Emirati Arabi Uniti, Egitto, Giordania. Paesi del fronte sunnita che, con Israele, condividono la necessità di arginare la penetrazione iraniana in Medio Oriente, contrastando l'affermarsi della mezzaluna rossa sciita sulla direttrice Baghdad, Damasco, Beirut. E Gaza. A questo è particolarmente interessato l'erede al trono saudita, il giovane (33 anni) e 'ambizioso principe Mohammad bin Salman Al-Sa'ud, fautore dell'avvicinamento, in funzione anti-iraniana, di Riyad a Tel Aviv: per il futuro sovrano, e attuale Primo vice primo ministro e ministro della Difesa saudita, togliere ai suoi nemici regionali la "carta palestinese" sarebbe un risultato rilevante, da far pesare nella definizione dei nuovi equilibri regionali. "E' ovvio che la regione è cambiata rispetto a pochi anni fa", dice ad Haaretz un funzionario dell'amministrazione Usa . "Il mondo arabo e Israele hanno molti interessi e obiettivi comuni, così come minacce comuni nelle attività destabilizzanti dell'Iran nella regione". Greenblatt, insieme al consigliere e genero del presidente, Jared Kushner, e all'ambasciatore americano in Israele, David Friedman, si è concentrato sul tentativo di utilizzare questi interessi comuni per far progredire il piano. Fonti esterne all'amministrazione coinvolte nelle discussioni sul piano hanno affermato al quotidiano di Tel Aviv che il gruppo mediorientale di Trump ritiene che il piano in fase di completamento potrebbe essere il primo a ricevere una risposta positiva sia da Israele che dai principali Paesi arabi, indipendentemente dalla posizione palestinese.

Il cuore di questo piano, rivelano le fonti, sarà in Cisgiordania e a Gaza. L'amministrazione Usa sta cercando di promuovere progetti economici nel Sinai settentrionale che potrebbero migliorare la situazione, sempre più degradata, nella Striscia. Nell'immediato, l'obiettivo principale di Washington è vedere l'Autorità nazionale palestinese ripristinare il proprio controllo sull'enclave costiera, da undici anni in mano ad Hamas. L'obiettivo principale dell'amministrazione a Gaza è di vedere l'Autorità Palestinese ripristinare il controllo sull'enclave costiera. A questo fine, nella visione statunitense, saranno decisivi i finanziamenti delle petromonarchie del Golfo per la ricostruzione di Gaza. L'amministrazione Usa ha provato lo scorso anno a promuovere una serie di iniziative minori che potrebbero creare uno slancio positivo per il processo di pace e mostrare segni di progresso sul terreno. Alcune di queste iniziative sono riuscite - ad esempio, un accordo idrico congiunto israelo-palestinese firmato l'estate scorsa - ma altri sono falliti a causa di ostacoli politici a Gerusalemme e Ramallah. Ad esempio, il ministero della Difesa israeliano aveva proposto un piano l'anno scorso, fortemente sostenuto dai vertici militari, per ingrandire la città palestinese di Qalqilya, situata nella West Bank, a ridosso di Gerusalemme.

Il piano di Qalqilya avrebbe permesso alla municipalità palestinese di costruire nuove case per migliaia di residenti. Il piano è stato respinto dal governo israeliano a causa delle pressioni esercitate dal partito di destra Habayit Hayehudi e da alcuni membri della Knesset del Likud. Ma la Casa Bianca quel progetto non lo ha accantonato ma, al contrario, lo ha inserito nel "piano del secolo". E, come risulta ad HuffPost, Qalqilya potrebbe diventare la capitale di uno Stato palestinese. "Vorremmo che il piano parlasse da solo - confida una fonte dell'amministrazione Usa ad Haaretz - la gente capirà che dopo l'accordo staranno tutti meglio che senza: crediamo che le persone coinvolte siano interessate al loro futuro e al futuro dei loro figli. Questo piano darà molte più opportunità a tutti in futuro rispetto alla situazione che hanno ora".

Una situazione apocalittica. Gaza sta morendo. L'ultimo, documentato grido d'allarme, è stato lanciato da Oxfam. L'assedio sta privando una popolazione di 1,900milioni di abitanti, il 56% al di sotto dei 18 anni, del bene più vitale: l'acqua. A oltre due anni dal sanguinoso conflitto che nel 2014 distrusse buona parte del sistema idrico e fognario di Gaza, il sistema straordinario disegnato dalla comunità internazionale per la ricostruzione post-bellica (il cosiddetto Gaza Reconstruction Mechanism-Grm) non riesce ancora a rispondere ai bisogni dei quasi 2 milioni di abitanti della Striscia "intrappolati" in una delle zone pi densamente popolate del mondo. Una situazione drammatica, rimarca il report di Oxfam, aggravata degli effetti del decennale blocco di Israele sulla Striscia, di cui le prime vittime sono oltre 1,9 milioni di persone che devono sopravvivere con uno scarsissimo accesso all'acqua e una situazione igienico-sanitaria in continuo peggioramento. Basti pensare che il 95% della popolazione - anche solo per bere e cucinare - dipende dall'acqua marina desalinizzata fornita dalle autocisterne private, semplicemente perché l'acqua fornita dalla rete idrica municipale (che presenta oltre 40% di perdite) non è potabile o perché oltre 40mila abitanti non sono allacciati alla rete. A questo si aggiunge un sistema fognario del tutto inadeguato con oltre un terzo delle famiglie che non è connesso al sistema delle acque reflue. Una situazione di carenza idrica di cui fanno le spese soprattutto donne e bambini, che in molti casi sono costretti a lavarsi, bere e cucinare con acqua contaminata e si trovano esposti così al rischio di diarrea, vomito e disidratazione.

Le Nazioni Unite annunciano che entro il 2020 sar¢ praticamente impossibile vivere a Gaza per la mancanza di energia elettrica, il più alto tasso di disoccupazione al mondo e l'impossibilità per la popolazione di accedere anche a beni essenziali come cibo e, per l'appunto, acqua pulita. Hamas sa bene di non poter reggere questa situazione. Così pure l'Anp di Abu Mazen. E in questa chiave, di forte pressione sulla dirigenza palestinese, va letta la decisione americana di tagliare i finanziamenti all'Unrwa, l'Agenzia delle Nazioni Unite per i rifugiati palestinesi. A Ramallah gridano allo "strangolamento" della popolazione civile, all'"ennesima, vergognosa punizione collettiva", ma fuori dall'ufficialità, dall'entourage di Abu Mazen emerge l'interpretazione politica: Trump vuole "imporre" la sua pace. Il "piano del secolo" permetterebbe alla popolazione di Gaza di tornare a respirare. Il che significa anche agire su Israele per porre fine ad un embargo pluridecennale. Ed è questo uno dei punti del "piano Trump" che potrebbe essere indigesto per la destra oltranzista israeliana. D'altro canto, The Donald ad oggi ha molto dato all'amico Netanyahu, a cominciare dallo spostamento dell'ambasciata Usa da Tel Aviv a Gerusalemme, e poco riavuto indietro. Ora sembra giunto il momento dell'incasso. Per entrare nella Storia.

Pour info , les contrat sont valorisé par des conseil privé , je crois que pour le PSG le CAC c'est EY (qui n'avais jamais décoté le contrat) et le FPF a du engager un concurent quelconque qui a valorisé les contrats. Si les contrat ont été dévalué cela ne veut pas dire que le PSG ne percois pas l'argent ( il n'y a aucun risque la dessus , c'est d'ailleurs pour cela qu'EY les laissait tranquille) . C'est juste au regard de critère subjectifs pour le FPF . Plus précisément il tente de prouver que QTA ne tire pas 100M d'euro de son partenariat avec le PSG mais max 39 M donc s'il sont saint d'esprit et non lié (ce qui est le cas) il ne donnerai pas de l'argent gratuit. Cela dit on rentre dans un domaine très subjectif et ou tout le monde fait l'autruche . QTA se dit simplement pas lié et recuperer des droit d'image du PSG (inestimable pour le Qatar) + une stratégie commercial long terme , peut etre qu'apres le Qatar 2022 si les Qatari reste il pourront prouvé plus facilement l'impact commercial du PSG et faire ce qu'ils veulent niveau transfert.

Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (Kahramaa) held two workshops at Kahramaa main building for authorised electrical contractors on application requirements and procedures of electricity connection to livestock farms (ezab).

The workshops were attended by a number of electrical contractors who reviewed a detailed presentation about the conditions and procedures of online application of electricity connection to livestock farms by Kahramaa officials from Customer Services and Information Technology Departments. The online application of connection requests starts today via Kahramaa website.

Applications are submitted online where the authorised contractor applies after ensuring all technical requirements are observed and internal wirings are installed as per Kahramaa standards. The contractor can track the request online until feed payment and connection completion. The workshops aim at educating the authorised contractors on the requirements of online application of electricity connection requests to ezab. Kahramaa officials answered all contractors’ inquiries about connection and application.

For the electricity connection request to be accepted, the livestock farm should have water connection. Otherwise, both electricity and water connection requests can be submitted. This service is one of the smart services Kahramaa provides within the continual improvement of services as per the highest standards to increase customer satisfaction. With the e-services, customers can complete their requests online and at their convenience without visiting any of Kahramaa service centres.

          Comment on The Abiy Phenomenon by saay7      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Selamat Semere T: How can you make bold predictions and not have anything in caps? Kidding! Everybody is so touchy. Ok, lets see: <blockquote>1. - The current Ethio-Eritrean "warm" relation was was cooked way, way, way back. It was just marketed and sold to the public during Abiy/Isaias visits to Asmara and Addis to maximize the political capital of both leaders and their team.</blockquote> Agree, and I have said as much many times. In facts, Reuters has a report about that: that it started in 2017 during the reign of Hailemariam Desalegn who says that after the death of Meles Zenawi, EPRDF had agreed that it needs to unconditionally accept Algiers Agreement. Then came the UAE and Saudi Arabia with their dinars, for the purposes of blocking out Qatar, Turkey and China. Bribed Ethiopia big bucks; Eritrea was already bought. <blockquote> 2. - Among the many issues that were discussed and agreed upon (border demarcation, trade, movement of people, opposition forces to both Addis and Asmara, the Woyane role in future Ethiopia, Ethiopia's role in the Red Sea Horn region, Eritrea's role in the region as trusted and loyal ally of Ethiopia.....) I truly believe Western and regional powers as brokers and guarantors (a) a blueprint for peaceful transfer of power in Eritrea (b) political immunity (sovereignty) with an ironclad guarantee (assurance) for Isaias Afewerki, the aging and frail top PFDJ leaders, and to the senior PFDJ cadres was agreed by all.</blockquote> Agreed, for the most part. The immunity was for IA only, and it was given by US via UAE and Qatar. Neither IA nor the rest of the countries give a hoot about the "frail top PFDJ leaders." <blockquote>3. - When Isaias Afewerki showed all the emotions when he was with Dr. Abiy, it was an expression of trust he put on on Abiy (his life, the life of his family, his legacy, the life of his friends and colleagues, and the fate of his country). Because the power, influence, and access to the powerful Ethiopia has can't be underestimated. Because Isaias Afewerki, his family, his legacy, the safety and security of his colleagues and friends, the peace and security of the nation is as good as the honest commitment of Ethiopian leaders.</blockquote> Agreed, but I would put it differently. It was the happiness and marvel of a guy who learned that he just got away with it. He was on the path to ICC just a few months ago, and now serious people are talking about MoIbrahim Award and Nobel Peace Prize. <blockquote> 4. - That as an objective to move foreword, Isaias Afewerki has invested heavily on Ethiopia and Ethiopian leaders (since Ghedli years) in all Ethiopian political denominations. And today, outside the Woyane circle, he has earned a lot of respect from all, especially from the Amara and Oromo political brands.</blockquote> Mixed. I agree that he has always been about Ethiopia, but about Ethiopia of his vision: One Ethiopia. That's why he hated TPLF's vision for Ethiopia and that's why he was so comfortable with Gnbot 7 even when it ocassionally said that to it, "One Ethiopia" means Ethiopia with Eritrea and ports. There was an EPLF veteran, the front's representative to Somalia during Ghedli who was interviewed by Assenna a few years ago (I forget his name; iSem will come up with it.) He says he arranged a meeting for the Sidama Liberation Front to meet with Isaias and when they told him their objective included secession from Ethiopia he was so mad and so incensed by this heresy he shouted at them. Some of my oppo comrades have attributed all sorts of heritage-ancestry explanation for this, but it was an ideology for him: Emama Ethiopia must be unified and it must be a unitary state. (And yes I believe Mesfin Hagos' narration: he wouldn't have minded Eritrea being part of Ethiopia if he could rule it and if it could remain a unitary state, which was heretical to TPLF's vision of Ethiopia as a federal system. <blockquote>5. - Soon, the usual will happen (a) world wide PFDJ conference (congress) will take place (b) laws, constitution, policies...... would be revised (c) new PFDJ blood would assume leadership role (d) the new leadership will grant immunity to all Tegadelti and Non-Tegadelti PFDJ top and senior leaders</blockquote> The Front will forgive itself? Or the leaders of the front will forgive themselves and, in the process, forgive those whom they victimized? I don't see it as in the nature of petty Isaias: there will always be someone who want make the cut. And, no, it won't be "the PFDJ' making the decision; but Isaias Afwerki, personally, going over every file of the thousands (I am going to say tens of thousands but please don't faint) of prisoners. <blockquote> 6. - If there is a good consensus on the PFDJ congress, very young leaders with a long term will be elected/nominated. If there is not much consensus, an older guy will take a leadership role with a shorter term limit to help build higher consensus.</blockquote> There is no such thing as PFDJ consensus. There is an IA wish list, and that's all. And yes, as I said, there will be a PFDJ-II. <blockquote>7. - To reward and to honor Isaias, the Ghedli leaders, and the Ghedli generation, Ethio-Eritrean border will be demarcated with a funfair before PFDJ congress and the new leadership.</blockquote> This is creative, something that a PR mastermind would come up with. I will make a bolder prediction: it will happen with TPLF presence and by then TPLF will have shed its decrepit leadership and the PFDJ will declare that one as its victory too:) <blockquote> 8. - Isaias Afewerki, as an ex president of Eritrea, his safety and security protected, will live in Eritrea antil his time of death.</blockquote> Agree, except it will follow the model of another moralizing dictator, Julius Nyerere, who died in Ireland. Isaias will be in a Saudi hospital. Remember, African tyrants never build anything worthwhile, not even a hospital they have enough faith to die in. <blockquote> 9. - The Eritrean opposition, former Tegadeltis and Non former Tegadeltis alike, should stop criminalizing Isaias and PFDJ and join this political venue to stay relevant.</blockquote> Yeah, Eritrean oppositionist, why are you such party-poopers? We arent you celebrating when there is nothing in it for you? Things your boldness got timid on: * The fate of the exiled Eritrean freedom fighters now in opposition * The fate of Eritrean refugees in Sudan, Ethiopia, Israel * The fate of the non-PFDJ prisoners * The fate of National Service. saay

          Saudi-Canadian Dispute Doesn’t Extend to Oil      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Saudi Arabia’s oil supplies to Canada will not be impacted by a dispute between the two countries, the kingdom’s energy minister said Thursday, reassuring customers after Riyadh froze new trade with Canada and ruled out mediation efforts. The world’s largest oil exporter has a “firm and long-standing policy” that petroleum supplies are not influenced by political considerations, Khalid al-Falih said in a statement. “The current diplomatic crisis between Saudi Arabia and Canada will not, in any way, impact Saudi Aramco’s relations with its customers in Canada.” Canada’s demand Saudi Arabia, infuriated by Canada’s demand last week that jailed rights activists in the kingdom be released immediately, expelled the Canadian ambassador Sunday, blocked imports of Canadian grain and ended state-backed educational and medical program in Canada. Bilateral trade between Canada and Saudi Arabia is worth nearly $4 billion a year. Canadian exports to Saudi Arabia were about $1.12 billion in 2017, or 0.2 percent of the total value of Canadian exports. Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir ruled out any mediation efforts and called on Ottawa Wednesday to “fix its big mistake,” saying the kingdom was considering implementing more measures against Canada for interfering in Saudi Arabia’s domestic affairs. Trudeau olive branch Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau later appeared to extend an olive branch, saying he would keep pressing Saudi Arabia on civil liberties but also saying the Gulf Arab state had made some progress on human rights. “Diplomatic talks continue ... we don’t want to have poor relations with Saudi Arabia. It is a country that has great significance in the world, that is making progress in the area of human rights,” Trudeau said. Saudi Arabia has in recent months detained several women’s rights activists, some of whom had previously campaigned for the right to drive and an end to the kingdom’s male guardianship system, the latest to be swept up in a government crackdown on activists, clerics and journalists. Since rising to power in 2015, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has courted Western allies to support his reform plans to modernize and open up the kingdom, offering billions of dollars in arms sales and promising to fight radicalism in the kingdom. Prince Mohammed has launched a campaign of social and economic change, but has not eased the absolute monarchy’s total ban on political activism. He has taken a more aggressive stance toward archrival Iran, began a three-year war in Yemen and led a boycott of fellow Gulf Arab state Qatar. In addition to the trade freeze, Riyadh has stopped sending patients to Canadian hospitals and suspended educational exchanges, moving Saudi scholars to other countries.

Enlace Judío México.- Faltó una voz israelí en árabe totalmente durante los recientes enfrentamientos a lo largo de la frontera de la Franja de Gaza-Israel. El espectro de los medios visibles para los palestinos está controlado por Aljazeera, así como por la propaganda palestina de radio y televisión y las transmisiones de adoctrinamiento. El Contralor del Estado israelí ha criticado severamente esta deficiencia e instó al gobierno a llenar el vacío, señalando que Israel fracasa constantemente en producir una transmisión oficial israelí a audiencias específicas en árabe, ni siquiera durante una crisis como la Operación Plomo Fundido. Israel debe corregir este error para poder enviar mensajes directos al público palestino, así como para funcionar como una herramienta psico-operativa.
CORONEL (Res.) DR. RAPHAEL G. BOUCHNIK-CHEN
Las recientes tensiones en la frontera de la Franja de Gaza-Israel fueron el resultado de una protesta organizada iniciada por la administración de Hamás. No fue una respuesta popular espontánea a una profunda crisis humanitaria o condiciones de vida miserables.
Hamás, la organización terrorista que ganó por la fuerza el control de la Franja de Gaza en 2007 y expulsó a la Autoridad Palestina, manipula a la población civil palestina. Los adoctrina y glorifica el “derecho al retorno“, el eufemismo palestino para la destrucción de Israel a través de la subversión demográfica, que fue el principal lema de las manifestaciones a lo largo de la frontera con Israel.
Hamás oprime a la población civil en la Franja de Gaza y desvía sistemáticamente la ayuda financiera masiva entregada por la UE, así como por Irán y Qatar, para proyectos militares, particularmente los túneles terroristas. Intencionalmente frustra los esfuerzos internacionales en la rehabilitación de la vivienda y la infraestructura dañadas durante las rondas de hostilidades con Israel. Hamás aprovecha los medios locales para mantener a la gente inflamada contra Israel en lugar de contra sí mismo.
En el caso de los disturbios organizados de la “Gran Marcha del Retorno” a lo largo de la frontera entre Gaza e Israel, en los que los alborotadores palestinos fueron alentados, tanto simbólica como literalmente, a romper la cerca fronteriza en territorio soberano de Israel, Hamás ganó la batalla mediática. Dirigió la atención del mundo hacia la supuesta miseria de los palestinos y el (supuesto) brutal comportamiento del ejército israelí, que fue acusado de utilizar francotiradores contra “manifestaciones civiles pacíficas” y de matar a personas inocentes, incluidos niños.
Israel fue debidamente culpado y se enfrentó a protestas diplomáticas y condena pública, a pesar de los hechos. No se dio crédito a las Fuerzas de Defensa de Israel por la estricta restricción que ejerció en el uso de munición real en circunstancias extremadamente complejas.
No era la primera vez que Israel, que tiene una causa fuerte -la necesidad de defenderse contra la agresión y las provocaciones de Hamás, un reconocido movimiento terrorista- pierde la batalla de las relaciones públicas. En estos escenarios, Hamás logra ser aceptado como un desvalido cuyas acciones se justifican al enfrentar la “máquina de guerra” israelí.
La impotencia israelí en el campo de las relaciones públicas refleja una peligrosa falta de urgencia sobre la necesidad de presentar su punto de vista ante el mundo. Esta es una falla fundamental, ya que descuida la esfera principal del campo de batalla moderno.
Esta laguna se manifiesta no solo en términos de hasbará (diplomacia pública) sino también en términos de los requisitos de la guerra psicológica básica, que es un multiplicador de fuerza a nivel táctico.
Israel no cuenta con medios de comunicación convencionales fiables en árabe con los que contrarrestar las campañas de propaganda dirigidas por Hamás (y la Autoridad Palestina en general), ya sea en la Franja de Gaza o en Cisjordania. El espectro de los medios está completamente controlado por la radio palestina y los vehículos de propaganda televisiva que son accesibles a la población en masa en todos los niveles de audiencia.
Israel no se ha molestado en tratar de competir en este campo, centrándose en cambio en medios más “sofisticados”, a saber, redes sociales como Facebook y Twitter. Ocasionalmente, funcionarios israelíes y académicos son entrevistados en Aljazeera TV, que por definición ofrece un marco hostil para la diplomacia pública israelí. Esto no se puede considerar como el medio más inteligente para acceder a las poblaciones masivas en los campos de refugiados y otras personas comunes en Judea y Samaria (Cisjordania) y la Franja de Gaza.
La corporación de radiodifusión pública israelí tiene una estación de radio dedicada en árabe, pero su alcance de cobertura es muy limitado, tanto que se describe despectivamente como una transmisión en “círculo cerrado”. Lo mismo se aplica a los recursos limitados dedicados a la televisión pública israelí en árabe, que no puede competir con las estaciones de televisión árabes.
Esta situación irresponsable podría ser un efecto secundario de la negligencia gubernamental que se remonta a los años noventa. La atmósfera eufórica generada por los Acuerdos de Oslo provocó la degeneración de la radiodifusión árabe israelí, que tenía las características de una red de propaganda.
La falta de medios de comunicación directa israelí con la población árabe palestina fue una de las causas de los reiterados encuentros militares infructuosos con Hamás en la Franja de Gaza, en todos los cuales las víctimas civiles fueron la razón principal de la presión internacional sobre Israel para que pusiera fin a sus campañas antes de que se alcanzaran sus objetivos.
Este fracaso constante fue señalado por primera vez a la atención del Contralor del Estado de Israel en 2008. Indagó en serio sobre el asunto y llegó a conclusiones contundentes. En su informe especial emitido en 2009, utilizó una redacción severa para resaltar la gravedad del problema:
La oficina del Contralor del Estado ha señalado una y otra vez a la oficina del Primer Ministro así como a la oficina del Ministro de Asuntos Exteriores acerca de la falla nacional de larga duración en el dominio de hasbará hacia audiencias específicas que hablan árabe. Esta falla sistemática se demostró con gran vigor durante el período de la operación “Plomo Fundido” y sus seguimientos … No es aceptable que exista una situación en la que no exista en la práctica una respuesta adecuada dentro del frente de la diplomacia de comunicaciones públicas, en el sentido de transmisiones efectivas diseñadas para presentar la situación que refleja el punto de vista israelí a audiencias específicas en árabe, con énfasis en ocasiones de emergencia. … La continuación de este fallo duradero de la ausencia de una transmisión oficial israelí a las audiencias específicas en árabe, incluso durante la operación “Plomo Fundido” en la Franja de Gaza, demuestra aún con mayor fuerza esta necesidad concreta.
En un segundo informe dedicado (enero de 2010), el Contralor del Estado enfatizó que
“los árabes israelíes están expuestos a la propaganda antiisraelí derivada de las cadenas de televisión árabes con énfasis en Aljazeera, así como en Hamás y Hezbolá … En cuanto a la radiodifusión israelí en árabe, hay una falla continua en el acceso a los palestinos en la Franja de Gaza y Cisjordania, así como a los ciudadanos de los estados árabes y todo el mundo árabe … Israel no está activo en esta arena crítica“.
Israel debe reconocer que se juzga de acuerdo con las imágenes emitidas y los videos de TV, independientemente de los hechos y circunstancias reales. En una confrontación asimétrica, cualquier operación o incidente militar puede ser manipulado y distorsionado por el bando considerado como el menos favorecido. Como el estratega y filósofo militar chino Sun Tzu afirmó sabiamente en su obra maestra El arte de la guerra: “No se necesita destruir al enemigo. Basta con destruir su voluntad de participar“.

          Qatar quiere invertir en Cádiz      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Qatar ha echado el ojo a Cádiz como ciudad dónde invertir. Mohamed Jaham Al Kuwari, embajador de Qatar en España, se reunión este miércoles en el ayuntamiento de Cádiz con el alcalde, José María González, para trasladarle oficialmente el interés del gobierno Qatarí por estrechar lazos comerciales con la capital gaditana. Energías renovables, turismo, sector marítimo y educación son los cuatro sectores en los que el país árabe quiere establecer una cooperación económica y cultural bilateral que, según ha explicado a LA VOZ el diplomático, «ha sido bien acogido» por los responsables municipales. ¿Cuál ha sido el motivo de su visita a Cádiz? Estoy de visita en la región, en Cádiz y Algeciras. Pedí reunión con el alcalde para hablar sobre la posibilidad de cooperación entre Qatar y Cádiz en temas de energías renovables, turismo, industria marítima y educación. La Universidad de Cádiz tiene una especialidad de ciencias del mar y nos gustaría tener intercambio entre la universidad de Qatar y la universidad de Cádiz. El turismo para nosotros es importante. Tenemos una empresa que invierte en hoteles y tenemos varios en España (Madrid, Barcelona) y en otros países europeos. Habla de la universidad de Cádiz, ¿en qué sentido plantea esa cooperación? La educación para nosotros es muy importante. Nos gustaría en nuestra colaboración con Cádiz establecer un programa de intercambio de estudiantes dada la importancia de Andalucía como parte de la relación histórica entre España y el mundo árabe. Por ejemplo, podemos mandar estudiantes qataríes a estudiar a Cádiz y al resto de Andalucía. Qatar destina mucho presupuesto a Educación, casi el 12% del PIB. Estamos considerados en relación al tamaño de la población el primer país del mundo en inversión en educación. Y creemos que estrechar lazos con la universidad de Cádiz puede ser muy interesante. Energías renovables, turismo, industria marítima y educación son los ejes de interés del gobierno qatarí ¿Puede concretar algún proyecto? En principio aún no porque la reunión que he mantenido con el alcalde ha sido una primera toma de contacto institucional para trasladar nuestro interés. En septiembre queremos crear un equipo de trabajo entre el ayuntamiento y Qatar. ¿Quién formará parte de este grupo de trabajo? Será un equipo técnico para debatir y explicar aspectos de cooperación que Cádiz puede ofrecer a Qatar y viceversa; para descubrir las posibilidades, las oportunidades. ¿Qué le ha parecido al alcalde su propuesta de colaboración, su idea de invertir en la ciudad? La ha acogido bien. Me ha dicho que Cádiz quiere crear una estructura en el sector de las energías renovables y nosotros somos exportadores de gas natural, que es una energía limpia. Qatar suministra a España casi el 14% del gas natural que llega a España y tenemos una empresa especializada en energía solar y renovable. Todo coincide. ¿Con quién se reunirá en Algeciras? Con el alcalde y con empresas de la zona para ver la cooperación que podemos tener en sectores como el turismo y la industria marítima, sobre todo. ¿Se ha planteado invertir en alguna otra provincia de Andalucía? Sí, vamos a llevar a cabo un proyecto de seguridad alimentaria. Exportar verduras, frutas, carnes. Puede ser interesante levantar fábricas en Qatar para producir productos del sector alimentario. Además de esto también estamos interesados en hacer proyectos culturales. Queremos tener ferias del libro, invitar a Qatar a artistas y estudiantes, montar exposiciones, etc. No es solo algo económico, también queremos acercar los pueblos. Para Qatar es tan importante la diplomacia económica como la cultural. Un equipo técnico se reunirá en septiembre para comenzar a trabajar. No se descartan inversiones en la industria naval ¿Contempla inversiones en el sector naval en la bahía de Cádiz, en alguno de los Astilleros? Cádiz tiene una ubicación estratégica. En este momento no puedo saberlo pero sí le puedo decir que los técnicos especializados vendrán y verán. Después haremos un informe que enviaremos a Qatar para informar de las posibilidades que ofrece Cádiz en este sentido. Arabia Saudí ha encargado la fabricación de cinco corbetas a Navantia y se fabricarán en los astilleros gaditanos. Hay mucho debate en torno al asunto por cuestiones belicistas y de derechos humanos ¿Qué opina? Es un asunto entre España y Arabia Saudí. Es un asunto bilateral. España ha tomado una posición muy positiva tras el bloqueo a Qatar llamando al diálogo de los países de la zona del Golfo y está buscando una posición pacífica. ¿Entonces? Arabia Saudí está en situación de violación de derechos humanos. Muchos parlamentos de países europeos pidieron parar la venta de armas a Arabia Saudí. Eso es un asunto internacional contra Arabia Saudí.  Las relaciones comerciales entre España y Qatar son buenas a tenor del incremento de empresas españolas posicionadas en su país. Qatar es el primer país árabe en inversión en España. Tenemos una participación en Iberdrola, en Colonial, El Corte Inglés, en deporte, en turismo, en energía, etc. Y hay posibilidad de invertir más. De hecho, en la actualidad estoy preparando nuevos proyectos para invertir en España. Las empresas españolas en Qatar son más de cien y hay una comunidad de más de 5.000 españoles viviendo en Qatar y más de 15.000 si contamos a toda la población hispanohablante. ¿Cómo es la relación de la familia Al Thani con la Casa Real Española? Hay buena relación. El trato con la Moncloa y Zarzuela es excelente. Ha sido siempre así a través de la historia de nuestras relaciones bilaterales. ¿Se ha reunido con el nuevo Presidente, Pedro Sánchez? No lo conozco aún pero estamos esperando que ambos Jefes de Estado se reúnan pronto, de hecho, ahora estamos hablando con el gobierno español para organizar la visita oficial a España. Ya hace más de un año del bloqueo de Arabia Saudí, Emiratos, Barhein y Egipto a su país. ¿Cuál ha sido el coste económico y social para Qatar? Vivimos normal porque Qatar es un país respetado, tenemos aliados, amigos y acceso al mundo a través del mar. La vida sigue normal. Las necesidades alimentarias y de productos están cubiertas e incluso hay más. Vivir ahora es más barato. Antes los productos venían a través de Arabia Saudita y Emiratos como intermediarios y se quedaban con unas comisiones del 20-30%, y ahora llegan directamente. Esta situación pasa con los productos españoles, ya no hay intermediarios. Después del bloqueo las exportaciones aéreas han aumentado un 40%. ¿Cómo lo viven los qataríes? El problema que tenemos con el bloqueo es el asunto social. Es decir, las familias. Hay una separación de familias. Han echado a los qataríes de sus territorios: ciudadanos, estudiantes, empresarios e incluso pacientes de hospitales, especialmente en Emiratos árabes. Han hecho una violación de los derechos humanos y los hemos llevado a la corte internacional de justicia. «Qatar no apoya el terrorismo, tenemos una base militar de EEUU con 10.000 soldados, es ilógico» Los países del bloqueo le acusan de financiar el terrorismo y, sobre todo a los Hermanos Musulmanes ¿Qatar financia o apoya el terrorismo? EEUU tiene en Qatar una base militar con 10.000 soldados. Sería ilógico eso si apoyásemos el terrorismo. Incluso hace una semana hemos firmado un acuerdo para ampliar esta base militar. También hay instituciones americanas y nunca ha habido problema. Sin embargo, sí tenemos apruebas de que ellos, Arabia Saudí, apoyan el terrorismo. Los países que impulsaron el bloqueo quieren cambiar la política interna y externa de Qatar y cambiar el gobierno de Qatar. Ese es el objetivo del bloqueo. Qatar es un país independiente y ellos no quieren que tengamos este rol, quieren que culquier decisión de la zona parta de Arabia Saudí. Nosotros decimos que si hay problemas hay que solucionarlos a través del diálogo pero ellos hasta ahora rechazan diálogar. Un año después parece que el bloqueo a Qatar ha quedado oculto por otros asuntos como el acuerdo nuclear con Irán y la guerra de Yemen. Lo de Yemen es una violacion de derechos humanos contra un país hermano, solo por diferencias políticas. No creo que sean diferencias religiosas. Qatar ha abierto el país para el diálogo para organizar conferencias internacionales, para crear plataformas de libertad de expresión, alianzas del mundo árabe, etc. Arabia Saudí y los demás implicados en el bloqueo no quieren Hay miles de presos políticos en estos países, en nuestro país cero. Tienen presos a estudiantes, activistas, periodistas, empresarios. Nosotros no queremos seguir su línea de opresión, por eso continua el bloqueo. Su aliado es Irán, un hecho que no les gusta, sobre todo a Arabia Saudí. Después del bloqueo ningún país más cortó relaciones con Qatar. Ahora Arabia Saudí las ha cortado con Canadá por una cuestión de derechos humanos. Eso va a enseñar al mundo cómo es Arabia Saudí. Trump dijo hace varias semanas que pretendía convocar a los líderes del Consejo del Golfo para hablar de la situación. Nosotros aceptamos a reunirnos, estamos abiertos para dialogar. El problema es con ellos (los países del bloqueo). Los americanos saben que el problema es con los países impulsores del bloqueo, no con Qatar. La reunión aún no es oficial, no está conformada. Si se convoca, estaremos presentes. ¿Qué tendría que haber sobre la mesa para no acudir? Si hay asuntos que tocan nuestra soberanía no. No tienen qué decidir quienes son nuestros aliados. Además, no tenemos una relación privilegiada con Irán. Y doy datos. Antes del bloqueo la relación de intercambio comercial entre Qatar e Irán era de 250 millones de dólares mientras que con Emiratos era de 20.000 millones. ¿Quién tiene la relación privilegiada? Con Irán tenemos intercambio comercial de gas, y tenemos derecho a tenerlo porque somos vecinos. No buscamos la confrontación, creo que nuestra región ha tenido suficientes guerras y sangre. El problema es que todas las declaraciones políticas tienen que surgir de Arabia Saudí y a veces sucede que países pequeños juegan un rol más importante que los grandes para la paz. ¿Qué es lo que más le ha gustado de Cádiz? Me gusta la ciudad antigua, es pequeña, íntima y la gente muy amable. Me gusta mucho la gastronomía. Esta mañana he ido a correr y la he recorrido entera, 16 kilómetros antes de ir a la reunión en el ayuntamiento. Quiero volver a pasar por lo menos una semana. El máximo representante de Qatar en España confía en etender puentes con Cádiz. - S.C.G.

It had nothing to do with KTM's performance in MotoGP. It had to do with buying a Ducati Panigale 899 on May 14. KTM was 11-13-10-11-11 until that time so not bad. Then I went to Laguna Seca June 22-24 and started learning about Ducati in WSBK. Chaz Davies placed 2nd in both Race 1 and 2, right behind Jonathan Rea. I also enjoyed my VIP treatment at Ducati Island and became a official member of the Ducatisti family. Ducati's performance in MotoGP also increased right after I became a fan of the brand, as shown below. I think it had to do with Lorenzo's signing with Honda which gave him the confidence to push harder and pull Dovi along with him. So there you have it: nothing to do with KTM. I look forward to KTM's performance next year and will root for both brands. If Harley was racing in MotoGP (or owned Ducati), I would root for them too.

          'Pure Islam is pure evil.'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
'Pure Islam is pure evil.' So writes a repeated pastor friend.

I have two problems with this, the theological and the semantic.

Islam like Christianity and Judaism has varied manifestations. Most Muslims in the West are no threat to civil peace. They may think they follow a religion of peace. But tell that to a Sallafi.

'The Salafi movement or Salafist movement or Salafism is a revivalist movement within Sunni Islam that developed in Egypt in the late 19th century as a response to European imperialism. However, some sources cite additional roots in the 18th-century Wahhabi movement. It advocated a return to the traditions of the salaf, who are the first three generations of scholars after the Prophet Muhammad.
The Salafist doctrine is centered around the concept of looking back to a prior historical period in an effort to understand how the contemporary world should be ordered.  They reject religious innovation or bid'ah, and support the implementation of sharia (Islamic law). The movement is often divided into three categories: the largest group are the purists (or quietists), who avoid politics; the second largest group are the activists, who get involved in politics; the third group are the jihadists, who form a minority.'
It is with these jihadists that one is concerned. They disqualify any concept of religion of peace being applied to Islam.
'The majority of the Salafis in the Gulf states reside in Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. Salafis are the "dominant minority" in Saudi Arabia.There are 4 million Saudi Salafis since 22.9% of Saudis are Salafis (concentrated in Najd).Salafi literalist creed has also gained some acceptance in Turkey.'
Who knows what proportion are jihadists?
'At times, Salafism has been deemed a hybrid of Wahhabism and other post-1960s movements. Salafism has become associated with literalist, strict approaches to Islam – and, particularly in the West, with the Salafi Jihadis who espouse violent jihad against those they deem to be enemies of Islam as a legitimate expression of Islam.'
Their enemies are not merely non-muslims but Muslims who are not with their Salafi thought.
So what is Islam? A coat with many colours.
As to "pure", my problem is pure can mean unadulterated  - 100% - and it can also mean wholesome.

  • 'not mixed or adulterated with any other substance or material.
    "cars can run on pure alcohol" ·
    synonyms: unmixed · unalloyed · unadulterated · unblended · 
  • wholesome and untainted by immorality, especially that of a sexual nature.
  • "our fondness for each other is pure and innocent"
    synonyms: virtuous · moral · ethical · good · righteous · angelic'

    Islam is a mixed bag, a broad church. It is mixed. Salafi jihadism is never wholesome but it is not the whole of Islam. It is the dangerous minority. Saudi money spreads it all. Saudi is in permanent conflict with Iran. Sunni and Shi'a. Anyone for a religion of peace?

              Offshore Support Vessel Services Market Expected to Increase at a CAGR 8.9% Through 2018 to 2026      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    The South East Asia offshore support vessel services market is expected to progressively recover after the oil and gas industry crisis.

    New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/09/2018 -- Persistence Market Research (PMR) has published a new market research report on offshore support vessel services. The report has been titled "Offshore Support Vessel Services Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013 – 2017 and Forecast 2018 – 2026." As one of the important international trades in the world, seaborne transportation is estimated to play a pivotal role in global industrialization and progression, authorizing the transportation of very large volumes of processed and raw materials as well as water, food and other products. As per the data collected from the SAE Europe Shipyards & Maritime Equipment Association, the sea borne trade growth rate is sluggish as compared to the long-term historical average.

    A sample of this report is available upon request @ https://www.persistencemarketresearch.com/samples/11302 

    Global sea-borne trade configuration is estimated to be potentially influenced by planned and current initiatives such as the "One Belt, One Road Initiative", the partnership for quality infrastructure and the expansion of the Panama and Suez Canals. The growing cross border e-commerce and technology advancement coupled with the industrial revolution in developing countries have further reshaped sea-borne trade and maritime trade patterns and in turn will drive global sea-borne trade growth over the forecast period. As a result, leading companies are venturing into partnerships in order to stay competent in the global market. For instance, in September, 2017, M3 Marine Group Pte Ltd. signed a partnership with PT ROV Inspeksi. The main aim of the partnership is to create asset integrity and to enhance their collective capabilities in the offshore marine surveying and inspection arena. The new company offers remote inspection (ariel, underwater and confined space) and inspection services for both onshore and offshore marine projects & assets. Other companies operating in the global offshore support vessel services market are BOURBON Corporation, Vroon Offshore Services Pte Ltd., Pacific Radiance Ltd, Swire Pacific Limited, and Bumi Armada Berhad, among several others.

    According to the report, the global offshore support vessel services market is expected to witness a CAGR of 8.9% from 2018 to 2026. The market is expected to touch US$ 11,472.8 Mn by 2018 and further expand to a valuation of US$ 22,746.7 Mn by the end of 2026.

    Burgeoning Natural Gas Exploration to Boost Market Development

    Over the years, the high level of emission from power industries and automobiles have made it obligatory to find an alternative for conventional fuels, such as coal and other petroleum-based fuels. As a result, several major consumer countries, such as Japan, ASEAN Countries, U.S. and European countries, have shown willingness to adopt natural gas, which is an effective alternative with reduced emission and is also abundant in nature. Countries such as Australia, Qatar, and Norway have increased the export of natural gas considerably. Demand for LNG is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The global LNG trade was pegged at around 244.8 MT in 2015, an increase of nearly 4.7 MT than that in 2014. Countries such as Egypt, Jordan, Poland and Pakistan entered the LNG import market in 2015. Several new liquefaction and regasification terminals that will accommodate bulk storing and processing facilities are under construction in Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Americas and are expected to start operating during the forecast period.

    Labor Constraints Pertaining to Ecology and Technology to Challenge Market Growth

    The growing share of ultra-deep offshore oil production will comprise tailor-made projects adapted to site conditions and characteristics of the reservoir. Industrialization and lowering of costs in deep water are big technical challenges. For production vessels and other marine projects, the development of subsea processing is expected to be more complex. Moreover, lots of work to qualify equipment and materials will be required for managing the ecological risks. Shipbuilding companies involved in the offshore sector are required to build quality employment, minimize negative environmental impact and advance the interest of the society as a whole. Moreover, the issue of promoting equity can be addressed with all-inclusive industrial policies and social programs. This would also allow workers to take advantage of the change.

    From Ian:

    Senior UN official blasted for floating Israel's suspension from world body
    A United Nations human rights expert is under fire after suggesting Israel could have its member status at the world body suspended over alleged violations of international law.

    Michael Lynk, the special rapporteur for human rights in the Palestinian territories, made the remarks at a side event during a July session of the Human Rights Council -- the controversial panel the U.S. withdrew from last month.

    Audio of the event, “Human Rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory: Systematic Violations with Impunity,” was obtained by Fox News from NGO Monitor -- a Jerusalem-based research institute analyzing non-governmental organizations (NGOs) claiming to advance humanitarian agendas.

    In that audio, Lynk describes Israel as an “illegal occupant,” and says “the international community has not simply the ability, but also the responsibility and obligation to bring [settlements] to an end.”

    He then goes on to say that there are “a number of tools” that the international community can use to bring Israel back in line.
    Amb. Danon blasts official who suggested Israel be suspended from U.N.
    Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon harshly criticized a suggestion by UN official Michael Lynk that Israel be suspended from the world body over what the United Nations characterizes as violations of international law, Fox News reported Wednesday.

    Lynk's comments is “another reason why the [Human Rights Council] lost its credibility,” Danon said.

    “Mahmoud Abbas knows that actions such as this do nothing to encourage peace," Danon said in an interview on Fox News. "In fact, it actively works against it, and encourages incitement and a culture of hate."

    “The international community has not simply the ability, but also the responsibility and obligation to bring [settlements] to an end,” Lynk, Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories for the UN, told a July session of the Human Rights Council, adding that there are “a number of tools” the international community can use to change Israeli actions.

    “It may mean reviewing or suspending Israel’s privileges as a state member in the United Nations,” Lynk said. “It may mean that countries in the world, particularly those with significant trading or political relationships with Israel, would review their relationships with Israel in the military, political, diplomatic and economic investment spheres. It may mean that Israel would face some forms of restrictions in its abilities to wind up trading.”

    The United States withdrew from the Human Rights Council in June, citing what it characterized as the body's biased treatment of Israel and its failure to address serious abuses throughout the world.
    Elliott Abrams: Saudi Arabia and Canada
    What was the Canadian action that led to this fierce reaction? A tweet from Canada’s foreign minister saying “Very alarmed to learn that Samar Badawi, Raif Badawi’s sister, has been imprisoned in Saudi Arabia,” and that “Canada stands together with the Badawi family in this difficult time, and we continue to strongly call for the release of both Raif and Samar Badawi.” And the following day a tweet from the foreign ministry saying “Canada is gravely concerned about additional arrests of civil society and women’s rights activists in #SaudiArabia, including Samar Badawi. We urge the Saudi authorities to immediately release them and all other peaceful #humanrights activists.”

    These are not harsh or shocking statements. The Raif Badawi case has long been a matter of international concern and comment. The United States commented in 2015 that “We are greatly concerned by reports that human rights activist Raif Badawi will start facing the inhumane punishment of a 1,000 lashes, in addition to serving a 10-year sentence in prison for exercising his rights to freedom of expression and religion. The United States Government calls on Saudi authorities to cancel this brutal punishment and to review Badawi’s case and sentence.” This is surely tougher than the Canadian comments. Moreover, the United States had no actual link to the case whereas Badawi’s wife and three children are now Canadian citizens. In addition, there has been plenty of comment about the current combination in Saudi Arabia of social and economic reform with the government’s absolute insistence on setting the pace of change—and punishing Saudis who seek to increase it. For example, just days before the kingdom allowed women to drive it punished women activists who had long sought that change.

    The Saudi position amounts to this: no government may comment on anything that happens in the kingdom. Any such comment is a violation of Saudi sovereignty. Thus the phrase in the Saudi statement that the Canadian comments were “against basic international norms and all international protocols.”
    PATHETIC: Trudeau Gave $50 MILLION Of Our Taxpayer Dollars To The Palestinians. Then They Sided With Saudi Arabia & Condemned Us
    Once again, Justin Trudeau has let Canada get played like a fool.

    As I recently reported, the Trudeau government gave $50 MILLION of our taxpayer dollars to the Palestinians.

    “$12.65 million will go to the Palestinians through the United Nations and other ‘international organizations,’ while most of the rest will go towards other NGOs who will disperse the money.”

    But did that get us any goodwill?

    NOPE.

    After relations between us and the Saudis broke down, the Palestinians sided with Saudi Arabia and condemned us:

    As noted in a recent report, “Palestinian news agency Wafa reported on Monday that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas stands with Saudi Arabia in a political row with Canada, rejecting what it called Ottawa’s “blatant interference” in Riyadh’s internal affairs. He also called on the Arab countries to stand by the Kingdom to reject and condemn the Canadian intervention in its internal affairs.”

    So, Justin Trudeau took $50 million away from the Canadian People, and gave it to the Palestinians, who then sided with our opponent and condemned us.

    How stupid can a government possibly be?

    Why the hell are we giving our money to people who hate us and oppose everything we stand for?



    Israel and Gaza: How did we get here?
    In the years to follow, Hamas continued to misuse funds and supplies in Gaza. Over $120 million worth of concrete originally intended to develop civilian infrastructure was used to build terror tunnels to infiltrate Israel. These tunnels were used as early as 2006 in the kidnapping of IDF soldier, Sergeant 1st Class Gilad Shalit.

    Since then, Hamas has continued to waste concrete on terror tunnels, and in the construction process, has killed more than 400 Palestinians, including at least 160 children. Attempts were made to smuggle weapons into Gaza via the Mediterranean Sea, which led to the imposition of a legal naval blockade. Additionally, rocket and mortar shell fire continued, inflicting wide-spread damage and trauma on Israel’s southern residents in particular, which lead to the development of the Iron Dome aerial defense system.

    Today, the relationship between Israel and Gaza remains tense. Yet Gazan civilians are still allowed to enter Israel to receive medical treatment, pray, study, travel, and work on a daily basis. Israel regularly facilitates the transfer of humanitarian supplies to the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom Crossing, even in times of conflict, including during Operation Protective Edge in 2014.

    Hamas remains accountable for controlling the Gaza Strip, and continues to put its terror-based goals above the needs of its people. They insist on inciting violence and wasting vital supplies on terror activity. The IDF will continue to operate as necessary to safeguard the security needs of the State of Israel, and is ready to defend Israeli civilians and sovereignty.
    Hamas Source: 5-Year Truce to Include Return of 4 Israelis at Some Point
    A truce between Hamas and Israel will be officially unveiled by the end of August, according to Turkey’s official news agency Anadolu, quoting a Hamas source.

    The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that as part of the deal, which was brokered by Egypt and the UN with input from Turkey and Qatar, Hamas and Israel would initially observe a two-week trial cease-fire.

    The truce, which is planned to last five years, would include the release of four Israelis: the remains of two fallen IDF soldiers and two living, mentally handicapped men who wondered across the Gaza border including two soldiers.

    The Anadolu report did not specify at which stage of the truce the release would be carried out, nor whether or not it would involve releasing Hamas terrorists who are behind bars in Israel.

    Under the agreement’s terms, according to the same Hamas official, the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and the Gaza Strip would be opened on a permanent basis, and Israeli restrictions on the Kerem Shalom border crossing would also be eased “dramatically.”
    IDF closes roads near Gaza over fears of revenge attack
    The military closed off a highway in southern Israel on Wednesday out of concerns that the Hamas terrorist group in the Gaza Strip may open fire at Israeli vehicles as revenge for an exchange the day before in which the army killed two Hamas members.

    The military said the decision to close Route 25 and several smaller service roads near the border was made in light of recent threats by Hamas and after IDF soldiers saw that the terror group had begun abandoning several of its positions in the Strip — a move Hamas generally takes as a precaution before carrying out attacks against Israel.

    “In light of Hamas statements and the evacuation of Hamas outposts, the Southern Command decided to increase readiness and to close a number of roadways in the Gaza periphery,” the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement.
    Terrorists shoot at civilians near Gaza
    Terrorists from the Gaza Strip opened fire on civilian workers engaged in the construction of the barrier along the security fence near the northern Gaza Strip Wednesday afternoon.

    According to the IDF, an engineering vehicle was struck by gunfire from Gaza.

    No injuries were reported.

    Earlier Tuesday, the IDF Southern Command decided to reinforce the Gaza Division and close several access routes in the area adjacent to the Gaza Strip in response to threats from the Hamas terrorist organization.
    UN humanitarian agency calls on Israel to let fuel into Gaza Strip
    A UN aid agency on Wednesday urged Israel to let emergency fuel into the Gaza Strip to avert the shutdown of hospitals and sanitation facilities.

    Jamie McGoldrick, from the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, called Israel’s restriction of fuel imports “a dangerous practice, with grave consequences on the rights of people in Gaza.”

    Israel halted the supply of petroleum and natural gas to Gaza last week after there was no pause in incendiary kites and balloons launched from Gaza into southern Israel, arson attacks that have gone on for months accompanied by border clashes. The violence has at times escalated into exchanges of fire on the border, rocket attacks from Gaza on southern Israeli cities, and Israeli airstrikes on Hamas targets.

    Israel temporarily suspended fuel shipments to Gaza in July for similar reasons. The airborne arson attacks have started hundreds of fires that consumed thousands of acres of farmland and countryside, causing millions of shekels in damage.

    A tour around “the Gaza Envelope,” the western Negev, reveals a conventional life dealing with unconventional circumstances.

    Along open roads are bomb shelters, some even painted with beautiful patterns to make something so unnatural not seem intimidating to children who rely on fleeing to these shelters often on a daily basis – or even multiple times a day.

    Some playgrounds are indoors, like the Indoor Recreation Center in Sderot. With a mere 15 seconds to run for cover, playing out in the open is a luxury children of the South can ill afford.

    “We established the world’s first protected playground with the amazing Jewish National Fund-USA, spearheaded by CEO Russell F. Robinson, who invested heavily in the playground so children could play without fear,” remarked Sderot Mayor Alon Davidi.

    “Sadly, the hundreds of kids who come here every day are used to this,” playground manager Shmuel Ohayon laments. “They are used to frequent drills in school, running to bomb shelters at home, and if there’s trauma, they have psychologists to speak to. Seventy-four percent of them have some sort of post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD].”
    A Democratic Nation State of the Jewish People
    As Prime Minister Netanyahu's Advisor for World Communities, part of my job is to listen to what people around the world have to say. Much of what I have heard from critics following the passage of Basic Law: Israel - Nation State of the Jewish People is mistaken and misinformed. The accusations about the new law's effects on Israeli democracy have no connection to the actual content or context of the law.

    The new Basic Law was passed to fill a constitutional void. Israel, like the United Kingdom, lacks a written constitution and instead relies on a set of basic laws. Israel already has basic laws to protect individual freedoms (such as Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty). Israel lacked a basic law defining the identity and purpose of the state.

    During the seven-year debate surrounding the Nation State Law, there was a broad consensus that a basic law was needed to define the identity of the country. However, the new basic law does not contradict or supersede the basic laws that protect and guarantee individual rights of all citizens regardless of ethnicity, religion or gender.

    The new law does not erode a single right or protection of any minority. It actually reaffirms Israel's commitment to minority groups.

    The new law also, for the first time, constitutionally enshrines Arabic as a language with "special status." It affirms that "the status given to the Arabic language before this law came into effect will not be harmed."
    Isi Leibler: Hysteria over nation-state law
    Most Israeli Arabs are happy to live in Israel – the only democracy in a region of barbaric conflict and dictatorships. They enjoy a higher standard of living and better opportunities than they would in any Arab country. An increasing number are engaged in professions and one need only enter an Israeli hospital where Arab and Jewish medical staff treat Jewish and Arab patients on a basis of equality, in order to repudiate slanders of apartheid or racism.

    The rule of law applies to Arab citizens as it does to any other Israeli. They enjoy freedom of religion and do not live in fear of punitive amputations or decapitation as prevails in much of the region.

    This law was designed to ratify classical Zionism, reject post-Zionism and reiterate that Israel is a Jewish state. Yet not a single clause can be construed as racist, denigrates minorities or suggests that they will be denied state support. Israel remains a democratic Jewish state with or without the law, which merely seeks to reinforce its identity.

    There are legitimate grounds for criticizing the law, particularly errors of omission by the government due to a lack of foresight, but the hyperbole used by some of those opposing it is malicious and will foment hatred within Israel and provide aid to those nations seeking to besmirch us.
    The masquerade is over
    What's all the fuss about? The spirit of the nation-state law has engulfed Israel for decades already. The law says that the land of Israel is the historical homeland of the Jewish people; and that the state established in this land is the nation-state of the Jewish people in which they are realizing their natural, cultural, religious, and historical right to self-determination. According to the law, the realization of the right to self-determination in the State of Israel is exclusive to the Jewish people.

    Here are a few other trivialities: Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Hebrew is the national language, and Arabic has a special status. The nation will be open to aliyah [Jewish immigration] and to an ingathering of the exiles. The state will be responsible for ensuring the safety of its citizens and other members of the Jewish people who are in distress or imprisoned because of their Jewishness or their Israeli citizenship. The state will work in the Diaspora to uphold the ties between it and the Jewish people abroad and will work to preserve the Jewish people's cultural, historical, and religious legacy in the Diaspora. The state sees national value in developing Jewish settlement and will take steps to encourage and promote new and existing settlements.

    Any honest person will admit that the nation-state law is a clear expression of the political consensus in Israel. Most members of the Zionist parties would certainly sign a declaration like this one, if it wouldn't cause a political scandal. What's more, the vast majority of high school graduates can't understand the objection to it.
    EU skips over Israel
    The European Union has formulated a plan to establish a transportation infrastructure to connect Gaza to Judea and Samaria without informing or involving elements in Israel.

    According to today's report on Reshet Bet as part of the plan it is proposed to build huge infrastructures also including "Area C" - places retained in the Oslo Accords under full Israeli control.

    Formulation of the plan in the European Union took 18 months and is scheduled to take 30 years to implement. According to the plan, air- and seaports will be established, plus an extensive network of railways and roads that would connect all parts of Judea and Samaria to Gaza.

    Although the plan includes many areas under Israeli control including in East Jerusalem, the EU did not bother to update the Civil Administration or other elements in Israel.

    Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz said the plan was known to him. "I made it clear that Gaza will not connect to Judea and Samaria. All their plans are on paper and are completely unacceptable," Katz said in an interview with Reshet Bet.
    Brazil presidential front-runner vows to close Palestinian embassy
    Brazil’s front-running presidential candidate has announced he will close the Palestinian embassy in Brasilia in addition to moving his country’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

    “Is Palestine a country? Palestine is not a country, so there should be no embassy here,” Jair Bolsonaro, a lawmaker from the Social Liberal Party, declared on Tuesday when the National Congress reopened after a three-week recess. “You do not negotiate with terrorists,” he added.

    He particularly slammed the fact that Palestinian Authority diplomatic representation is located less than two miles (3.2 kilometers) from the Planalto Palace, Brazil’s government headquarters.

    The right-wing lawmaker is a strong admirer and supporter of Israel. Elections are scheduled to be held in Brazil on October 7.

    Brazil recognized Palestine as an independent state in 2010 as part of former far-left President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva’s alignment with extremist governments such as Iran and Libya. At that time, Brazil donated $10 million to the Hamas terror group, which rules the Gaza Strip and is vowed to Israel’s destruction. Lula’s political heir, Dilma Rousseff, continued the anti-Israel sentiment during her term until she was impeached in 2016.
    French President Macron cancels Israel visit
    A year ago, Macron said he would visit Israel and the Palestinian Authority in the spring of 2018 to push for the renewal of Israeli-Palestinians peace talks. The visit was then postponed from the spring to the fall, and has now been cancelled entirely.

    Paris did not provide a reason for the cancellation, but it is likely tied to the political crisis Macron is facing at home after his bodyguard was filmed assaulting May Day protesters.

    The incident sparked the biggest political crisis of Macron's tenure. Critics say Macron’s office failed to properly punish the head of his security detail or refer him promptly to judicial authorities over the incident. They say Macron’s handling of the case shows he has lost touch with ordinary people since taking office 14 months ago.

    Footage showed the bodyguard, Alexandre Benalla, hitting a male protester and dragging away a woman while off duty and wearing a riot helmet and police tags.

    “I alone bear responsibility. They can come and get me. I answer to the French people,” Macron told a gathering of members of parliament from his party.
    Israel is suspected again of assassinating an enemy’s rocket scientist. Do these killings pay off?
    Does the plan work?

    Sometimes it backfires. The attempts on Arafat fed his legend and lent him stature among Palestinians. Israeli commandos in 1988 killed Khalil al-Wazir, also known as Abu Jihad, in Tunis in 1988. Abu Jihad, Arafat’s second-in-command, also was among the Palestinian leaders seeking accommodation with Israel. The killing did nothing to stop the first intifada. Israeli leaders believed that Abu Jihad was directing its violence, but it was a homegrown affair.

    Other times, when a critical actor is killed, it appears to have results. The 1996 assassination of Ayyash, “The Engineer,” was followed by a rash of bus bombings believed to have been planned before his death – and then several years of relative quiet.

    Schanzer said the policy may work in conjunction with an overall strategy. The campaign against Iran’s nuclear scientists, he said, was coupled with cyber warfare that for a time crippled Iran’s uranium enrichment and tough sanctions that slowed its nuclear program.

    “Israelis have always used targeted assassination as not the only means but as one element of a broader strategy,” he said.
    Russia and Israel reach understanding on Golan border line
    Israel and Russia have reached an understanding to ensure the preservation of the 1974 cease-fire line on the Golan Heights, according to Israel’s Ambassador to Russia Gary Koren.

    According to a TASS Russian News Agency report, Koren – who met with Russian journalists in Stavropol in southern Russia Monday – said, “we coordinated the arrangement under which Russia pledged to make sure, as it were, that the Syrian Army will not cross the cease-fire line established under the 1974 agreement. It looks like everything is functioning for the time being. I hope it will be so in the future, as well.”

    Koren said Israel insisted on the full withdrawal of Iranian troops from Syria.

    The 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement between Israel and Syria, which followed the Yom Kippur War, separated Israel and Syrian troops and created a 235-km. buffer zone in the Golan Heights. Israel demands the buffer zone be respected, even as it is deeply concerned that Iranian or Shia forces moving south with Syrian President Bashar Assad’s troops may try to violate it.

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stressed during his visit to Moscow in July that respecting the Separation of Forces Agreement was a red line for Israel in Syria.
    Israeli UN Envoy Urges New Head of South Lebanon Peacekeeping Force to Push Back Harder Against Hezbollah
    Italian Maj. Gen. Stefano Del Col replaced Irish Maj. Gen. Michael Beary as the new commander of the UN peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon on Tuesday — a development that was welcomed by a top Israeli diplomat.

    “UNIFIL is an important force, with more than 10,000 soldiers,” Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said in a statement. “Its more robust mandate is designed to push back against the blatant, unauthorized arms buildup of Hezbollah, a proxy of Iran, in southern Lebanon. With a new commander, there is a new opportunity to fulfill more of this important mission.”

    Danon’s office explained: “UNIFIL’s mandate has been to restore peace and security to the Israeli – Lebanese border. Following the Second Lebanon War in 2006, its mandate was expanded to include monitoring the area between the Blue Line and Litani River, and keep it free of armed personnel, other than Lebanese government or UNIFIL forces. Last September, the US and Israel worked together to further expand UNIFIL’s mandate by authorizing patrols with Lebanese forces and requiring reports when peacekeepers run into Hezbollah roadblocks.”

    Recent UNIFIL commanders — including Beary, who assumed the position in July 2016 — have all served terms of 2-3 years.
    Druze-Israeli advances as Iraqi foe refuses to fight
    Israel’s Amit Mdah advanced to the semifinals at the IFMA Youth Muaythai World Championships in Bangkok this week when his Iraqi opponent refused to compete in their quarterfinal match.

    Mdah, 17, a resident of the village of Kisra-Sumei in the Western Galilee, holds the European title and won a bronze medal at the World Youth Championships a year ago. This time he was guaranteed a medal after his Iraqi rival Mohammed Jalal did not appear in the battle against him. Before that he won 10-9 against Hamdan Mohammed from the United Arab Emirates.

    The protest of the Druze community in the wake of the Nation-State Law occupies one of the main topics of discussion in Israeli society these days. However, Druze athletes continue to represent the country successfully, bring honor, and also suffer from anti-Israeli behavior by competitors from Arab countries.

    Mdah, who competes in the under-57 kg category, faced Russian Mohammed Yusuf Momonhomov late Tuesday in the semifinals.

    The Israeli delegation to the championships includes eight male athletes and two female athletes, aged 11 to 17. Before the competition, the young athletes were in a training camp in Thailand.
    Israel helps PA Arabs make pilgrimage to Mecca
    The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), headed by Maj. Gen. Kamil Abu Rokun, prepares every year for the passage of thousands of Arabs from all over Judea and Samaria to Mecca, Saudi Arabia via the Allenby Bridge.

    In a post to the Arabic COGAT Facebook page, Maj. Gen. Kamil Abu Rukun wrote to the Palestinian Authority residents: "We are prepared for a quick and easy passage for all the pilgrims from Judea and Samaria who are observing the holiday. I wish you and the Muslim world a pleasant and happy journey, and a blessed holiday."

    Approximately 5,200 PA residents are expected to cross the Allenby Bridge this week to make the pilgrimage to Mecca, which is known as the Hajj. The pilgrimage is being coordinated with the Palestinian Authority, Jordan and the Airports Authority. 88 buses were organized to bring the pilgrims across on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

    In addition, a special area was established in the city of Jericho, called "State of Al-Khawaja", to arrange and register residents in advance for the Allenby Bridge buses. From the Allenby Bridge the pilgrims continue on buses through Jordan to Mecca.
    Palestinians jailed for trying to rob biblical archaeological site
    Three Palestinians were sent to 36 days in prison on Tuesday for damaging and attempting to rob a major archaeological site in the northern West Bank last month.

    The men, whose names haven’t been released, were arrested at 1:00 a.m. on July 18 at the location of the ancient town of Sebastia, which contains overlapping layers of history dating back nearly 3,000 years.

    They were caught by an inspector for the archaeology division of the Civil Administration, the Israeli body that oversees civilian affairs in the West Bank, while carrying digging equipment and a metal detector. The site, just outside the city of Nablus, was found vandalized, Hebrew-language media reported.

    A hilltop capital of biblical kings later ruled by Roman conquerors, crusaders, and Ottomans, Sebastia — also known nowadays as the Samaria National Park — is caught between conflicting Israeli and Palestinian jurisdictions, and the site has been largely neglected by both sides for the past two decades. Beyond the decay, unauthorized diggers and thieves have taken advantage of the lack of oversight to make off with priceless artifacts.
    The New Face of Palestinian Protest: Ahed Tamimi

    Congress Forces Al Jazeera, Other Foreign Media to Disclose Ties
    Congress recently approved new legislation that would force foreign-owned media organizations such as Qatar's Al Jazeera to register as a foreign agent under U.S. law.

    The legislation, included in the annual National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, would mandate that foreign-owned media organizations register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, or FARA, a move that would shine greater sunlight on these organizations' ties to foreign governments.

    Al Jazeera in particular has become a poster child for those in Congress backing the legislation. A delegation of lawmakers, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and Rep. Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.), have been championing the legislation for months, arguing that Al Jazeera and others should be forced to admit their close ties to foreign governments.

    Proponents of the legislation argue that media outlets such as Al Jazeera have tried to hide their agenda behind the guise of objective journalism. Al Jazeera, for instance, recently faced intense scrutiny on Capitol Hill for running a secret, months-long spy operation on American Jewish activists and their allies in Congress on order from the Qatari government.
    Iran has only begun to feel the pain of Trump’s sanctions
    As the Iranian regime reels under the strain of renewed sanctions, the Trump administration is already preparing the next phase.

    We see too little of it in our press, but Iranians are increasingly taking to the streets and the clerics’ hold on power is weakening.

    And it’s about to get worse for the regime. A new round of US sanctions, announced in advance, kicked in Monday. It restricts currency transfers and bans trade in gold, silver, aluminum, steel and other metals.

    Most of the new sanctions have already been factored in, changing the way the world does business in Iran. European politicians, who’ve sanctified President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal, are calling on companies to stay put and do business in Iran, as the seven-party Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action dictates.

    But business is business.

    After the nuke deal was signed, France’s Renault was eager to position itself for the day all sanctions would be removed, cutting deals to dominate Iran’s car market. Anticipating Monday’s sanctions, however, Renault announced an end to all its Iran businesses in July — even though it sells no cars in America.
    Experts: New U.S. Sanctions on Iran Impose Cost on Regime’s Hostile Behavior
    The first round of U.S. sanctions reinstated against Iran this week makes clear to the Islamic Republic the Trump administration's willingness to financially squeeze the regime until it curbs its destabilizing behavior, according to regional experts.

    President Donald Trump on Tuesday warned that firms doing business with Iran would be blocked from the U.S. market as new sanctions hit the country despite appeals from Washington's allies.

    The sanctions are part of a steadily increasing pressure campaign implemented after Trump in May decided to withdraw the United States from the Obama-era Iran nuclear accord that sought to limit Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

    The administration will ratchet up pressure on Tehran's economy in early November when U.S. sanctions on Iranian oil are due to snapback.

    The renewed U.S. sanctions go into effect as protests escalate against Iran's hardline ruling party over its immense military spending, which has crippled an already weak Iranian economy.
    Trump's Ambassador To Germany Scores Another Victory Against Iran
    U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell is quietly convincing German companies to discontinue business with Iran.

    Grenell has scored a series of victories in recent days by successfully lobbying against a $400 million payment from the German central bank to the Islamic Republic and convincing car company Daimler to cancel expansion plans in the country.

    Many German businesses rushed to do business with Iran after the signing of the nuclear deal in 2015.

    The Trump administration, however, has pulled out of the nuclear deal and announced Monday that it would re-impose the same economic sanctions on Iran that the Obama administration removed as part of the deal. The new economic sanctions will limit Iranian ability to use the U.S. dollar, to trade in precious metals, and target its import/export businesses to the United States.

    The sanctions also affect any business that wishes do business with U.S. entities.

    “The Trump administration intends to fully enforce the sanctions reimposed against Iran, and those who fail to wind down activities with Iran risk severe consequences,” the White House warned in a Monday release.
    Will US sanctions really stop Iran from backing terror?
    Will the economic sanction imposed by Washington on Iran cause it to abandon the path of terror? For the time being, as one expert told Israel Hayom on Tuesday, the answer appears to be no.

    "To understand the influence of sanctions on the Iranian regime's behavior, you must first understand the modus operandi of Iranian banks and the Revolutionary Guard Corps,"explained Yossi Mansharof, a researcher of Iran and Shiite militias at the University of Haifa's Ezri Center for Iran and Persian Gulf Studies.

    "More than a few Iranian banks were included in the sanctions that were in place before the nuclear deal in 2015, because they were involved in money laundering for the Revolutionary Guards. Over the past six years, several European banks have been fined billions of dollars by the American authorities after admitting to helping the Iranian regime bypass the sanctions and launder billions of dollars," he said.

    "The method that keeps recurring in Iran is the use of straw companies, which the U.S. authorities keep trying to expose, just as we saw in the United Arab Emirates recently. The U.S. administration still has its work cut out for it in this department, it appears," Mansharof said.
    Yazidi Slavery, Child Trafficking, Death Threats to Journalist: Should Turkey Remain in NATO?
    Addressing the US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee on December 9, 2015, Mirza Ismail, founder and chairman of the Yezidi Human Rights Organization-International, said, in part:

    "We Yezidis are desperate for your immediate help and support. During our six-thousand-year history, Yezidis have faced 74 genocides in the Middle East, including the ongoing genocide. Why? Simply because we are not Muslims. We are an ancient and proud people from the heart of Mesopotamia, the birth place of civilization and the birth place of many of the world's religions. And here we are today, in 2015, on the verge of annihilation. In response to our suffering around the World there is profound, obscene silence. We Yezidis are considered 'Infidels' in the eyes of Muslims, and so they are encouraged to kill, rape, enslave, and convert us."
    ...
    "I am pleading with each and every one of you in the name of humanity to lend us your support at this crucial time to save the indigenous and peaceful peoples of the Middle East."


    Three years after this impassioned plea, Yazidis are still being enslaved and sold by ISIS, with Turkish involvement, while the life of the journalist who exposed the crime is threatened. Reuniting the kidnapped Yazidis with their families and bringing the perpetrators to justice should be a priority of civilized governments worldwide, not only to help stop the persecution and enslavement of Yazidis, but also to defeat jihad.

    The question is whether NATO member Turkey is a part of the solution or part of the problem. Should Turkey, with the path it is on, be allowed even to remain a member of NATO?
    Trump Admin Offers $10 Million Bounty on Top al Qaeda Leaders
    The Trump administration announced on Wednesday that it is offering $10 million for information leading to the location, arrest, or conviction of two top al Qaeda leaders, doubling the bounty from its previous amount of five million dollars.

    The bounty was first placed on the al Qaeda leaders in December 2000, but the United States has yet to apprehend or locate the individuals.

    "The U.S. Department of State's Rewards for Justice Program is increasing reward offers for information leading to the location, arrest, or conviction of al-Qaida key leaders Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah and Sayf al-Adl to $10 million," the State Department said in a release. "This represents a doubling of the previous reward offers of $5 million each announced in December 2000."

    "Both individuals served as members of al-Qaida's leadership council, and al-Adl also served on the group's military committee," according to the State Department.

    The terrorist leaders were initially charged by a federal grand jury in November 1998 for their role in the bombing of the U.S. embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and in Nairobi, Kenya.

    10. Eric Djemba-Djemba – Man United to Aston Villa, 2005 (£1.5m)“So good they named him twice,” was Manchester United fans' generous appraisal of the Cameroon international.Djemba-Djemba, however, was rubbish, and demonstrated as much in his 20 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils. But that didn’t stop Villa from signing him in January 2005.David O'Leary had hoped that the Cameroonian could improve under his stewardship, but it wasn't to be: Djemba-Djemba struggled to break into the first team and, after just 11 appearances, was shipped off to Burnley on loan before his contract was terminated in summer 2007.9. Benni McCarthy – Blackburn to West Ham, 2010 (Undisc.)McCarthy had plundered 52 goals in 140 matches at Blackburn, having previously been prolific as a Champions League winner with Porto –so West Ham thought they were getting a perfectly capablestriker in February 2010.But the Hammers decided to part ways with the South African just 14 months into a two-and-a-half-year contract, paying him £1.5 million just to terminate his contract. Why? A return of 13 games, zero goals and lots of time spent on the touchlines nursing injuries. A disgruntled McCarthy later declared thatKarren Brady was “the devil with tits”.BIG INTERVIEW Benni McCarthy – “I was heartbroken to score twice against Man United – and Mourinho hammered me for it”8. Andre Santos – Fenerbahce to Arsenal, 2011 (£6.2m)Brazil havean illustrious history of successful attacking full-backs: see Cafu, Roberto Carlos, Dani Alves, Maicon and Marcelo as cases in point. Arsene Wenger was hoping that Andre Santos could provide similar levels of thrust when he signed the left-sider from Fenerbahce in the summer of 2011. He was wrong. Very wrong. Santos struggled mightily in the Premier League and made just 23 league appearances in 18 months, scoring twice (though one of those goals did come in a 5-3 thriller against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge). He came under heavy flak from Arsenal fans, not just for his dismal performances, but in also attempting to swap shirts with former Gunner Robin van Persie at half-time of a game against Manchester United in which Santos had played poorly.Arsenal decided to cut their losses and shipped him out on loan to Brazilian side Gremio, before Santos signed for Flamengo after his contract expired at the end of his loan spell.7. Paul Konchesky – Fulham to Liverpool, 2010 (£3m)Overall, the summer of 2010 was a horrible transfer window for RoyHodgson – and ultimately cost him his job at Anfield. His final capture was his former Fulham left-back Konchesky, who joined the likes of Christian Poulson, Danny Wilson and Milan Jovanovic at Anfield. Instead of taking his career to the next level, however, Konchesky struggled. He made just 18 appearances in four months and was sent out on loan to Championship club Nottingham Forestafter Kenny Dalglish arrived, never to play for the club again. Leicester signed him for around £1.5m in summer 2011, with whom he eventually returned to the Premier League.6. Xisco – Deportivo La Coruna to Newcastle, 2008 (£5.7m)After being impressed with his performances in La Liga and on international duty with Spain's U21 side, Newcastle decided to bring Xisco to Tyneside –despite having six other strikers in their squad, including Michael Owen, Obafemi Martins and Mark Viduka.As a result, he hardly featured in the 2008/09 season and, after the Magpies were relegated, he was loaned out to Racing Santander.After returning the following year, Xisco once again failed to force himself into first-team reckoning, and in January 2010 went back to former club Deportivo on a loan. His Newcastle contract was eventually terminated in January 2013, afteronly nine appearances and one goal.5. Afonso Alves – Heerenveen to Middlesbrough, 2008 (£10m)With Middlesbrough struggling in their 2007/08 relegation battle, the club had a simple solution – turn to Brazil international Afonso Alves, who averaged more than a goal per game during his time in the Eredivisie.On paper, it looked like a good move. On the pitch, however, it turned into a nightmare. Alves struggled to adapt to the rigours of the English game, and while Boro staved off relegation, he scored just four times in 31 league appearances the following season as they failed to survive.Middlesbrough decided to cut their losses in September 2009 and shipped him out to Qatari side Al-Sadd. He stayed in the Gulf until his retirement in 2013.4. Radamel Falcao – Monaco to Man United, 2014 (£6m)Manchester United were hyped up after Louis van Gaal managed to add Falcao to an attack that already featured Robin van Persie, Angel Di Maria and Wayne Rooney. Having been so prolific for Porto and Atletico Madrid, it was anticipated that the Colombian would thrive playing off his star team-mates to form a fearsomefrontline.As it transpired, however, that was far from the case. Falcao mirrored United's form by struggling throughout the season, and while he did muster four assists, a return of as many goals from 29 appearances was well below expectations.Predictably, his loan move wasn't turned permanent.Insteadhe struggled at Chelsea the followingseason,before eventually rediscovering his old self at Monaco.3. Chris Samba–Anzhi Makhachkala to QPR, 2013 (£12.5m)In December 2012, Harry Redknapp had something to get off his chest.Having taken the reins at QPR a month earlier, the ex-Spurs chief was dismayed by the wage bill for a grossly underperforming team at Loftus Road, and called for change."There are a lot of players at this club who earn far too much money," he said. "You shouldn't be paying massive wages when you've got a stadium that holds 18,000 people."At the end of the following month he green-lit a deal for QPR to shell out £12.5m for Chris Samba from Anzhi on £100,000-per-week wages.The Congolese stopper made no difference whatsoever in an appalling side, however, and by April was telling fans to "get over" his hefty wages after a shocking performance against Fulham. One relegation and 10 appearances later, Samba was sold back to Anzhi for £12m.2. Andy Carroll – Newcastle to Liverpool, 2011 (£35m)After the ponytailed assassin had impressedwith boyhood clubNewcastle, Liverpool bought him on deadline day in January 2011 and gave him the No.9 shirt vacated by Fernando Torres.Injury inevitably delayed his debut, and thereafter a mixture of poor form and time in the treatment room blighted his spell at Anfield.The striker only managed 11 goals in 58 appearances over two-and-a-half seasons, and two games into the 2012/13 season he was shipped out on loan to West Ham. That move that was turned permanent a season later for around half the fee Liverpool paid to Newcastle.1. Fernando Torres – Liverpool to Chelsea, 2011 (£51.5m)Torres was already suffering from injury and confidence issues during the latter stages of his once-impressive time at Anfield. But they only got worse following his mega move toChelsea.The Spaniard's Blues debut wasa 1-0 defeat to the Reds, and he endured a 903-minute goal drought that lasted two months, finally ending it against West Ham – his only goal of that campaign. Worst of all, Torres continued to struggle in subsequent seasons.Personally his time in west London was unsuccessful, if not collectively: the striker scored 45 times in 172 appearances butstill managed to pick up FA Cup, Champions League and Europa League medals with the Blues, and scoredthe shockinggoal against Barcelona which sent Gary Neville back to puberty.His fall from grace was compounded when Chelsea struggled to find suitors for him in 2014. Torres eventually joinedMilan and then headed back to his first clubAtletico Madrid. New features you'd love on FourFourTwo.com

    Authors: Hamed Alhoori, Mohammed Samaka, Richard Furuta, Edward A. Fox

    As more scholarly content is born digital or converted to a digital format, digital libraries are becoming increasingly vital to researchers seeking to leverage scholarly big data for scientific discovery. Although scholarly products are available in abundance-especially in environments created by the advent of social networking services-little is known about international scholarly information needs, information-seeking behavior, or information use. The purpose of this paper is to address these gaps via an in-depth analysis of the information needs and information-seeking behavior of researchers, both students and faculty, at two universities, one in the U.S. and the other in Qatar. Based on this analysis, the study identifies and describes new behavior patterns on the part of researchers as they engage in the information-seeking process. The analysis reveals that the use of academic social networks has notable effects on various scholarly activities. Further, this study identifies differences between students and faculty members in regard to their use of academic social networks, and it identifies differences between researchers according to discipline. Although the researchers who participated in the present study represent a range of disciplinary and cultural backgrounds, the study reports a number of similarities in terms of the researchers' scholarly activities.

    "‘Farmer terrorism’ is the new Jewish settler slogan justifying the destruction of crops".  Palestinians farming on their own traditional lands is now called 'terrorism'.

    I don't like Cole - he's an ultra supremacist Jew who somehow manages to get published by 'anti-Semites' - at all, but here he deals with the interesting question - one of the key questions of our time - of why, say, Bill Kristol, doesn't look like Le Merchant:  "Flinging Poo at a Jew" (the epitome of political incorrectness is highlighted in red):
    "This Jewish delusion of being among the “99 percent” is what compels Jews in the West to promote suicidal policies. Some of us really believe that once the “white Christian power structure” is toppled, we’ll lead what replaces it. Which is nonsense. In truth, we’ll be the first ones tossed into the sea. Just ask the Jews of France how welcome they feel now that “people of color” own the streets. This is a Jewish community that largely survived the Nazis, but it’s not surviving the immigrant invasion.
    Speaking of Nazis, here’s an irony for the ages: It was Hitler who made the Jews white. Prior to the Holocaust, if you said the word “Jew” to a gentile, the first image that might come to mind would probably not have been a wealthy banker or media mogul, but rather a swarthy shtetl-dweller, a peddler, a rag salesman, Yiddle with a fucking fiddle. There’s a reason 1930s audiences loved Geezil from the Popeye cartoons. He was the stereotype.
    But then along came Hitler, who damn near wiped out lower-class Eastern European Jewry. By the 1970s, the caricature of the poor “ethnic” Jew made no sense anymore. If you wanted to stereotype a Jew, you made him an upper-class intellectual nebbish with mother issues, not a lice-infested street vendor. But way too many Jews still see ourselves as the dispossessed, and that illusion informs our politics. We don’t want to face the reality that we’re actually the elite now—so we tell ourselves ghost stories about how Trump wants to put us in camps. That way, we can reassure ourselves that “Okay, maybe we’re a little well-off, but the white Christian powers-that-be want us dead, so we better throw in with our comrades-of-color.”
    Take a hack like The New York Times Magazine’s Emily Bazelon. She recently attacked her “fellow whites” for their innumerable flaws. And when a few evil right wingers pointed out that she’s Jewish, she doubled down, stating that she “benefits” from her “whiteness” and therefore whites are “stuck” with her. Yet it took me exactly five seconds to Google-search “Bazelon” and “as a Jew” to reveal column after column in which she refers to Judaism as her “identity” and declares herself a “Jewish liberal.” I knew I’d get those results, because I know Bazelon’s type. She’ll identify as white to attack whites, but—like most Jews—she doesn’t want to lose her “special” identity, her “mark of the oppressed.”"
    Kristol and his ilk don't look like Le Merchant because his ancestors managed to get out, by stepping on the corpses of people who look like Le Merchant.  It's obvious that the people who died in Europe in the 30s and 40s died because they couldn't escape, but the kicker is that your ability to escape was a question of class (and the Khazars who run American foreign policy are from the class that got out, with the complication that some of the worst neocons obviously have some non-Khazar blood, some have been 'whitened' with the most important of Khazar intellectual/scientific developments, plastic surgery, and some of the worst Zionists like Saban aren't Khazars at all, so it's complex).  You can't get any more politically incorrect than that!  My question:  Why was there an obvious ethnic bifurcation in Eastern European Jewry?  I'm guessing it is the usual problem of racial purity - the elite Jews - think Rothschilds - didn't interbreed with the ethnic Eastern Europeans, thus remaining pure Khazar.  The same ethnic animus now seems to infect 'white' Jewish attitudes towards the ultra orthodox and the settler movement.  These aren't just policy disagreements - the 'white' Jews actually despise the other Jews, with ironic consequences in weakening Zionism.  As with all supremacisms, the weakness is that the supremacists start to divide themselves on the basis of purity to the ethnic ideal, in this case, how 'white' - purebred Khazar - you are.  This is the single most taboo discussion you can have.

    "Jeffrey Goldberg Doesn’t Speak for the Jews" (Klion).  No?  Could have fooled me.  To be read right after reading Cole.

    Amazingly on point, Khazar supremacist front Human Rights Watch is going to bat for the mass-murdering Khazar Sackler family by claiming that 'pain management' is a 'human right'!!! You can't make this stuff up!  "Battle Over Opioids: Surprising Push-Back, and Not From Dealers" (Wexler).  Note that you have to be 'woke' to see through this story.

    "A Four Person NATO-Funded Team Advises Facebook On Flagging "Propaganda"" (Durden).  The Atlantic Council, due to its obvious lack of any semblance of intellectual rigor, even by the standards of stinktanks, seems like a joke, but here is another example that there is good money and some power to be had in parroting the attitudes of the borg, while providing a parody/semblance of intellectual objectivity and expertise (e.g., Bellingcat).

    "Is Democratic Senator Mark Warner The Mastermind Behind Weaponizing US Tech Giants?" (Krieger).

    Quite a bit of glee over the tenth anniversary of the failed - and, in retrospect, silly - Georgian war on Russia:
    1. "WSJ: "When Russia Invaded Georgia"" (Sailer);
    2. Sailer's account of what actually happened; 
    3. "Marking 10 Years After Georgia Started War with Russia" (Gorka);
    4. "Repost: Saakashvili Wants War? He Will Get It." (Moon); and
    5. tying Saakashvili's appearance in American 'journalism' to the current world of the American borg: "Was the modern concept of ‘fake news’ born in Georgia a decade ago?" (MacDonald).
    Saakashvili can still write PR for the Americans, but he is a man without a country, detested everywhere, with comic repercussions.

    "Canadian sniper rifles expected to be in the hands of Ukrainian military by fall, MP says" (Pugliese) (every word is funny, but the last sentence is hilarious):
    "While foreign affairs minister Chrystia Freeland has yet to sign off on the export permit for the rifles, Bezan said he anticipates she will do so as she is a strong supporter of Ukraine.
    “If everything goes according to plan I would expect Freeland to sign off sometime this month,” he said. “I think the goal is to have (rifles) in their hands by the time of any fall-winter offensive in Donbass.”
    Global Affairs Canada official John Babcock would not say whether Canadian taxpayers are financing the sale, and would not provide any other details about the arms deal. “The government has an obligation to protect confidential commercial information,” he stated in an email. “Further details related to export transactions (for example, names of exporting companies, financial values of individual contracts and transactions, and details of the specific technologies being exported) are protected due to the commercially confidential nature of such information.”
    In December, the House of Commons defence committee recommended the Canadian government provide lethal weapons to Ukraine provided it demonstrates it is actively working to eliminate corruption at all levels of government."
    "NATO fighter jet ‘accidentally’ fires live missile near Russian border":  "The missile fired by the jet should have self-destructed but apparently failed to do so."

    "Venezuela’s soft coup advisor confesses where the opposition failed" (Verdad).  Gene Sharp, the NED, CANVAS, Yugoslavia, and Venezuela.  I would read this, and its comments.  See also:  "Venezuela Parliament Strips Immunity from Lawmakers Over Drone Attack" (one of the alleged coup plotters fled to Colombia!).

    "Why Saudi Oil Production Suddenly Dropped" (Paraskova).  Possibly an attempt to jerk up oil prices exploiting uncertainties over the Iran sanctions, but tough to do in a world flooded with oil, or possibly a reflection of a fact tied to the failure of the ARAMCO IPO, the fact that Saudi reserves aren't anywhere near what they are claimed to be.

    Shocking news!:  "Israel running campaign against Jeremy Corbyn" (Winstanley).  The extremely hands-on involvement of the Israeli government in what are supposed to be local issues was one of the big revelations of the first half of the Al Jazeera report (the second half, of course, on similar skulduggery in the US, has been shoahed as part of a deal to keep Qatar from being invaded!).

              Guerra commerciale, non solo USA-Cina: ecco quella Canada – Arabia Saudita      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Anche se il mondo sembra essere preoccupato dall’escalation di tensioni tra Stati Uniti e Cina, c’è almeno un’altra relazione pronta a scoppiare: quella tra Canada e Arabia Saudita. L'Arabia Saudita ha infatti sospeso i legami diplomatici e i nuovi rapporti commerciali con il Canada in risposta alla richiesta del Canada di liberare alcuni attivisti per i diritti delle donne. Come reazione, l'Arabia Saudita ha richiamato l'ambasciatore a Ottawa e ha ordinato che l'inviato canadese a Riyadh partisse entro 24 ore, stando a quanto afferma una dichiarazione del ministero degli Esteri. Il Canada sta “cercando di ottenere maggiore chiarezza” sulla questione, ha detto una portavoce del ministro degli esteri Chrystia Freeland. In particolare, il ministero degli Esteri saudita ha citato alcune osservazioni compiute la scorsa settimana da Freeland e dall'ambasciata canadese a Riyadh, che criticavano gli arresti di alcuni attivisti per i diritti delle donne, tra cui Samar Badawi, una cittadina canadese il cui fratello Raif Badawi, un blogger che criticava il governo, era già in prigione. Le dichiarazioni del Canada – si legge nelle dichiarazioni del ministero - sono “un affronto al regno che richiede una risposta acuta per impedire a qualsiasi parte di tentare di interferire con la sovranità saudita”. Sotto il principe Mohammed, figlio di Re Salman, l'Arabia Saudita ha già reagito in modo più aggressivo del solito contro quei Paesi che percepisce come troppo interessati ai prpori affari interni. In poco più di un anno, il regno ha infatti guidato una coalizione di quattro Paesi che ha reciso i legami con il vicino Qatar, ha richiamato l'ambasciatore in Germania e ha ridotto i rapporti commerciali con alcune aziende tedesche. Il Paese è anche stato largamente accusato di costringere il primo ministro libanese Saad al-Hariri a dimettersi (un'accusa comunque sempre negata). “La rottura delle relazioni diplomatiche saudite con il Canada sottolinea come la nuova Arabia Saudita che Mohammed bin Salman sta mettendo insieme non sia assolutamente in grado di tollerare alcuna forma di critica nei confronti della gestione dei suoi affari interni” – ha dichiarato Kristian Ulrichsen, del Baker Institute for Public Policy della Rice University in Texas. La politica estera saudita ha iniziato a cambiare quando Re Salman è succeduto al suo defunto fratello Abdullah nel 2015, posizionando suo figlio come il principe più potente del regno. Come ministro della difesa, il principe Mohammed è anche responsabile del coinvolgimento militare del regno nello Yemen contro i ribelli sostenuti dall'Iran. Sotto i precedenti leader, il regno aveva in buona parte scelto la strada diplomatica, basandosi principalmente sulla sua forza finanziaria per ottenere influenza nella macro area. Ora le cose sembrano essere cambiate. Sebbene due mesi fa le donne saudite abbiano iniziato a esercitare il diritto di guidare un'auto, alcuni dei più importanti attivisti per i diritti delle donne del Paese - compresi alcuni che hanno combattuto per anni proprio per poter far esercitare il diritto alla guida - sono stati arrestati all'inizio del 2018 per motivi di “sicurezza nazionale”. “Siamo seriamente preoccupati da questi resoconti dei media e chiediamo maggiore chiarezza sulla recente dichiarazione del Regno dell'Arabia Saudita”, ha detto in una email Marie-Pier Baril, portavoce di Freeland. “Il Canada difenderà sempre la protezione dei diritti umani, compresi i diritti delle donne e la libertà di espressione in tutto il mondo. Il nostro governo non esiterà mai a promuovere questi valori e crede che questo dialogo sia fondamentale per la diplomazia internazionale”. Per quanto concerne le relazioni commerciali, dall’inizio dell’anno il Canada ha esportato in Arabia Saudita già 1,4 miliardi di dollari di beni e ha importato 2 miliardi di dollari di prodotti, con conseguente deficit di circa 600 milioni di dollari, secondo i dati di Statistics Canada.

    Let's review some news from the first half of the week.

    Monday: The trial of President Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort revealed jaw-dropping crimes, and continues to do so. His key lieutenant in his former lobbying business, Rick Gates, testified that they committed multiple instances of bank and tax fraud together.

    Also on Monday, The Associated Press reported that as part of a quasi-genocidal, U.S.-supported war in Yemen, Saudi Arabia is providing quiet assistance to al Qaeda, including funding, arming, and straight-up recruiting jihadis into their coalition. What's more, America was in on it: "Key participants in the pacts said the U.S. was aware of the arrangements and held off on any drone strikes."

    Tuesday: Former business partners of Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross (who has been overtly profiting from his office) filed suit alleging he stole $123 million from the business he used to run. Later, ProPublica published an astounding report detailing how the Department of Veterans Affairs is being run by a cabal of Mar-a-Lago members, bizarrely including Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike Perlmutter, none of whom are public officials of any kind or even veterans.

    Wednesday: Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) was arrested by the FBI for insider trading — which was allegedly so blatant reporters overheard him boasting about it in the Capitol itself. Meanwhile it turns out New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is turning his regulatory powers seemingly only on local news outlets that ask him tough questions.

    This is modern American politics, folks: rotten to its very marrow. Corruption is eating the United States alive. As the Numidian King Jugurtha supposedly said of the Roman Republic: "Yonder lies a city put up for sale, and its days are numbered if it finds a buyer."

    Let's walk through a few of the major sellers.

    The foreign policy "Blob"

    In Ben Rhodes' famous phrase, the "Blob" refers to the D.C. foreign policy establishment and its mystifying habit of constantly arguing for the use of military force, usually in the Middle East, and often before the charred pile of corpses from their last failed war of aggression have even stopped smoldering.

    The Saudi example, which might seem like an outlier on the above list, is actually quite instructive in how money fuels the Blob. As John R. MacArthur wrote back in 2007, America had long tolerated the brutal and repressive Saudi monarchy — and sold it enormous quantities of weapons — in return for its toleration of American military hegemony and, more importantly, its oil sales. Cheap gas was regarded as necessary for the American way of life, and therefore we could look past just about anything.

    Yet from about the 1980s onward, the Saudi alliance has made less and less sense. For one, oil-based energy has become a large and increasing liability for any possible conception of the American national interest. Climate change is a clear and present danger to American security — a fact broadly recognized even within the U.S. military. And with the rise of fracking technology starting around 2010, Saudi oil imports have become less and less necessary to maintain current supplies in any case. And now the Saudis are supporting literally al Qaeda. What gives?

    The truth is that today, American foreign policy is to a great degree dictated by who can offer the largest bribes.

    The Saudis have spent billions of dollars of their vast cash hoard hiring various well-connected lobbying firms with ties to both parties. This effort was dramatically scaled up last year, in concert with the rise of the new Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman. He ruthlessly consolidated his power in a sort of thinly-disguised palace coup in late 2017, eliminating most contenders for power while claiming to be simply rooting out corruption (somehow his $500 million personal yacht escaped notice). He then undertook some token liberal reforms, allowing women to drive, opening some movie theaters, and holding a couple of concerts. In the background, of course, violent repression of human rights activists continued or even accelerated.

    Then bin Salman went on a grand tour of the United States, trying to sell his liberal reformer shtick.

    The awesome rottenness of the American elite was well demonstrated by their response to this transparent fraud. A veritable parade of politicians, bigshot media figures, and various businessmen swallowed bin Salman's story hook, line, and sinker. It wasn't just President Trump and various other Republicans — though the president has been a loyal Saudi stooge ever since they put his face up on a fancy hotel — but also many centrists and liberals. Bin Salman got cordial meetings with Bill and Hillary Clinton, Mike Bloomberg, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and sundry other Big Tech CEOs. David Ignatius in The Washington Post, Thomas Friedman in The New York Times, and Jeffrey Goldberg in The Atlantic all gave him extensive and credulous coverage.

    Of course, that is only one of many examples of the Blob's corruption. Qatar, Israel, Morocco, the U.A.E., Kazakhstan, and many other countries have purchased American influence or toleration by spreading money around Washington, D.C. Corrupt Investor-State Dispute Settlement trade deals have led the U.S. to sign away a huge chunk of its economic sovereignty to international corporations. Defense contractors create an enormous bias in favor of imperial aggression overseas, benefiting themselves while costing the nation as a whole trillions in war spending. And so on.

    The Republican Party

    The Trump administration is so saturated with corruption that it would take several books to describe it all in detail. Aside from Ross, there's Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, and former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt wildly abusing their powers of office for personal gain, including millions of dollars in government-funded flights. And Trump himself is directly using the presidency to enrich his vast business empire.

    Then there is the recent Republican tax bill, which not only stuffed hundreds of billions of dollars directly into the Sarlacc maw of the top 1 percent as a direct payoff for campaign donations, but also personally benefited most members of Congress who voted for it. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) seemingly got a personal kickback in the form of tax benefits for real estate (one of his major assets) for his vote.

    But there is also Russiagate, the unfolding drama over the extent of the Trump campaign's admitted collaboration with Russian electoral espionage in 2016 (which is a crime) — and the possibility that Vladimir Putin has compromising information on the president.

    Russia is the proximate main actor here. But at bottom, this is a story about American corruption. The Russians learned it's trivially easy to buy or suborn the American political establishment, particularly on the right, and perhaps even turn the vast power of the American state to their own devices. In a democracy, authority should be derived from the consent of the governed, but it turns out the Republican Party — in between purple-faced shrieks about defending the Constitution from liberal tyranny — will absolutely forsake the most elementary American political principles in a heartbeat for partisan advantage.

    Russiagate is a story about a criminal-riddled presidential campaign that was positively eager to trade foreign policy favors for hacked oppo research from a foreign power; a story of a political party leadership that laughed over the idea behind closed doors and successfully intimidated the incumbent government from discussing the story fully; and a story of a party electorate that has fed on bilious hatred for liberals and nutball conspiracy theories for so long they have completely lost sight of basic democratic values.

    The Democratic Party

    Before Democrats get too self-righteous about Trump and his cronies, let's consider the Great Recession and the ensuing weak recovery, which has left the United States something like $3 trillion below the 1945-2007 growth trend (and fueled the rise of right-wing extremism around the globe). As Frank Rich writes, we are still living today with the devastating consequence of this crisis — an economic anchor chain that has inaugurated an age of anxiety, hopelessness, and despair.

    Now, Republicans refusing any kind of stimulus or investment package after they took the House in 2010 — indeed, actually demanding economy-crushing austerity — is one major culprit here.

    But there were three gigantic and totally avoidable policy disasters committed by Democrats and the Obama administration when they had big congressional majorities in 2009-10, which helped lock in our current economy of weak growth, stagnant wages, and enormous corporate profits. The first was lowballing the Recovery Act stimulus package, and making it about one-third tax cuts in a moronic attempt to get Republican votes. To be fair, that was mainly an error of political judgment.

    But the second two disasters were more or less straight-up corruption.

    First was failing to use the tremendous leverage granted by the bank bailout to help the American citizenry. Remember, at this time the government owned multiple important financial institutions, like the world's largest insurer AIG. For years, the rest of the financial system was utterly dependent on government assistance (especially a hodgepodge of Federal Reserve programs that jammed trillions in credit into the financial system). But instead of using that leverage to, say, force the largest banks to break themselves up, or accept an aggressive financial reform package (instead of the milquetoast one they actually passed), or some other reform, the Obama administration just sold those companies back into the private market as soon as they possibly could. They didn't even prevent AIG employees from paying themselves outrageous bonuses after their epic management failure required a $184 billion bailout.

    The third disaster was even worse: the foreclosure crisis. A big part of the bank bailout granted sweeping powers to help struggling homeowners caught in the financial storm. But the Obama administration used its homeowner assistance program to help the banks even more, by simply slowing the rate of foreclosures — to "foam the runway" for the banks, in then-Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner's infamous phrase. From 2010-11, it probably enabled foreclosures on net rather than stopping them.

    And then, when it came to light that these foreclosures had been conducted mostly with forged papers, and the banks had whole floors of entry-level employees committing document fraud hundreds of times per day, Obama did not seize the opportunity to force them to help homeowners, as suggested by then-FDIC chief Sheila Bair. Instead this administration pushed through a wrist-slap fine whose headline figure was heavily inflated by including mortgage relief that would have been illegal to collect anyway. In the midst of perhaps the worst corporate crime spree in a century, the rate of white-collar prosecutions fell steadily to less than two-thirds of what it had been in the early Bush II years:

    (Courtesy Trac Reports)

    The foreclosure machine grinds on to this day, forgeries and all.

    The banks were restored to health (and enormous profitability), while homeowners were left to drown. The result was that between 2007 and 2016, the average wealth of the bottom 99 percent decreased by $4,500, while the average wealth of the top 1 percent increased by $4.9 million.

    This undoubtedly sharply worsened the Democrats' political carnage in the 2010 midterms. So why on Earth did they bend over backward to help the people who had caused the worst economic crisis in 80 years?

    By far the most convincing answer can be found in the post-administration careers of key Obama officials. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke (a Republican, but reappointed by Obama) is working for a hedge fund. Geithner is working for the absolutely odious private equity firm Warburg Pincus which makes its money by, among other things, tricking poor people into taking hugely high-interest loans.

    Former chief of the Department of Justice's Criminal Division Lanny Breuer (who was instrumental in quashing proposed bank prosecutions) is back at law firm Covington & Burling, which specializes in corporate defense. So is former Attorney General Eric Holder (who testified before a congressional committee that banks had become too big to prosecute) — and they even held his office open for him while he was in public service, how nice. Other former Obama staffers are cashing out shilling for defense contractors, Uber, or Amazon. And Obama himself is giving buckraking speeches to financial firms for $400,000 a pop.

    Now, Democratic Party corruption is not so blatant or egregious as the Republican variety. It tends to be more about cultural and social capture (and the associated head-spinning doublethink) than it is about sacks of cash being exchanged in a cynical quid pro quo. But at bottom, it is simply impossible to avoid drawing a straight line between Democrats failing to rein in a Black Death-level plague of corporate crime and later falling into the warm and lucrative embrace of that same corporate elite.

    One way to summarize the various severe problems afflicting American society is that the government is barely even pretending to function on behalf of the voting public anymore. Part of that is ideological. But another large and growing part is corruption. Today's American elite by and large line their own pockets, or those of their ruling class cohort, instead of attempting to serve virtuously as representatives of the citizenry and the nation. It's an age of moral bankruptcy.

    A country simply can't survive this level of corruption forever. The results in terms of citizen welfare speak for themselves. As the Ottoman Empire or Ancien Régime France discovered long ago, a nation which cannot clean up a thoroughly corrupt self-dealing elite will eventually fail. America needs fresh, virtuous leaders, and a great many people need to go to jail.


              The 2019 MotoGP Calendar: Will Mexico Really Be The 20th MotoGP Round?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    The announcement of the MotoGP test dates in the middle of last week have given a hint of how the 2019 MotoGP calendar is to take shape. The official announcement is not expected for another month or so – Dorna are still waiting for the F1 calendar to be published, to try to avoid direct clashes with the premier car racing series. The F1 calendar will not have the same influence as it had in previous years, however: since new owners Liberty took over the series, they have moved the start time of F1 races to 3:10pm Central European Time, some 10 minutes after MotoGP has finished the podium ceremony.

    The MotoGP test schedule sees three official tests taking place over the winter, though one of them is before the official winter break. The MotoGP field will be at Jerez on the 28th and 29th November for the first official test. This basically converts the previous private test, which most teams attended, into an official one, forcing all of the teams to take the track together, and to an extent, improving the coverage of the test.

    Testing continues after the winter break, the teams picking up at Sepang on the 6th-8th of February. Two weeks later, the MotoGP teams assemble once again for the final test before the season begins, at Qatar from the 23rd to the 25th February. Moto2 and Moto3 test at the same Losail Circuit a week later, and the first race of the 2019 MotoGP season will almost certainly take place on 10th March.

    Σήμερα στις 8 μ.μ., η συγκέντρωση στον Ιερό Βράχο της Ακρόπολης για τα ιμπεριαλιστικά εγκλήματα Σήμερα η συγκέντρωση που διοργανώνει στις 8 μ.μ. στον Ιερό Βράχο της Ακρόπολης η Ελληνική Επιτροπή για τη Διεθνή Ύφεση και Ειρήνη για να καταδικάσουν το έγκλημα των ΗΠΑ στη Χιροσίμα και το Ναγκασάκι, τους ιμπεριαλιστικούς πολέμους και επεμβάσεις και την εμπλοκή της Ελλάδας στους ιμπεριαλιστικούς σχεδιασμούς. Στην εκδήλωση θα μιλήσει ο αντιπρόεδρος της ΕΕΔΥΕ Γιώργος Λαμπράκης. Θα ακολουθήσει καλλιτεχνικό πρόγραμμα με το Γιώργο Σαρρή και στη συνέχεια πορεία στο ιστορικό κέντρο της Αθήνας. Κάλεσμα συμμετοχής στη συγκέντρωση απευθύνουν η ΟΓΕ, το ΜΑΣ, η ΚΕΘΑ. Σε ανακοίνωσή της η ΕΕΔΥΕ σημειώνει: «Εβδομήντα τρία χρόνια συμπληρώνονται από το ιμπεριαλιστικό έγκλημα των ΗΠΑ κατά του λαού της Ιαπωνίας, όταν το πυρηνικό μανιτάρι εξαφάνισε από προσώπου Γης χιλιάδες ανθρώπους στη Χιροσίμα και το Ναγκασάκι (6 και 9 Αυγούστου του 1945). Τεράστιες οι υλικές καταστροφές με ισοπεδωμένες τις δύο πόλεις-στόχους των ΗΠΑ. Πραγματικός στόχος οι λαοί, η ΕΣΣΔ, το ανερχόμενο επαναστατικό και εργατικό κίνημα. Ακόμα και σήμερα η ιμπεριαλιστική προπαγάνδα προσπαθεί να συγκαλύψει τους πραγματικούς στόχους χρησιμοποιώντας το ψέμα της "στρατιωτικής αναγκαιότητας" των πληγμάτων και ενώ ο Β΄ Παγκόσμιος ιμπεριαλιστικός Πόλεμος είχε τελειώσει! Διανύουμε μια περίοδο εξαιρετικά επικίνδυνη για τον ελληνικό λαό, για όλους τους λαούς του κόσμου. Οξύνονται οι ενδοϊμπεριαλιστικοί ανταγωνισμοί και αντιθέσεις σε όλο τον πλανήτη, σε Μέση Ανατολή, Βόρεια Αφρική, Ανατολική Μεσόγειο, Ουκρανία, Βαλκάνια, Περσικό Κόλπο. Προωθούνται στρατιωτικοπολιτικοί σχεδιασμοί των ιμπεριαλιστικών κέντρων για τον έλεγχο των αγορών, των πλουτοπαραγωγικών πηγών και ενεργειακών πόρων. Το ενδεχόμενο του "πρώτου πυρηνικού πλήγματος" που εξετάζεται από χρόνια στο πλαίσιο του ΝΑΤΟ, το επιβεβαίωσε η Σύνοδος του ΝΑΤΟ στη Βαρσοβία (Ιούλιος 2016) και απειλεί τους λαούς. Οι αποφάσεις της Συνόδου Κορυφής του ΝΑΤΟ στις Βρυξέλλες (Ιούλιος 2018), που "κουμπώνουν" με την παραπέρα στρατιωτικοποίηση της ΕΕ (ενίσχυση της PESCO, δημιουργία της "Ευρωπαϊκής Πρωτοβουλίας Επεμβάσεων", ενίσχυση της Κοινής Πολιτικής Ασφάλειας και Άμυνας της ΕΕ, των μάχιμων μονάδων της ΕΕ "EU Battlegroups") επιταχύνουν την υλοποίηση των δολοφονικών τους σχεδιασμών με την ενίσχυση των ΝΑΤΟικών δυνάμεων από τη Βαλτική μέχρι τη Μαύρη θάλασσα στο πλαίσιο του επικίνδυνου ανταγωνισμού με τη Ρωσία. Οι ευθύνες της κυβέρνησης ΣΥΡΙΖΑ - ΑΝΕΛ είναι τεράστιες. Στο εσωτερικό της χώρας εντείνει την αντιλαϊκή πολιτική της, ενώ παράλληλα βαθαίνει παραπέρα την εμπλοκή της χώρας μας σε ιμπεριαλιστικές επεμβάσεις και πολέμους, αναλαμβάνει επιθετικές πρωτοβουλίες παίζοντας το ρόλο του σημαιοφόρου για τα συμφέροντα ΗΠΑ - ΝΑΤΟ - ΕΕ στην ευρύτερη περιοχή των Δ. Βαλκανίων και της Ν/Α Μεσογείου, βάζοντας το λαό μας σε μεγάλες περιπέτειες. Στο όνομα της "σταθερότητας", η κυβέρνηση και τα άλλα αστικά κόμματα υιοθετούν και στηρίζουν όλο το πακέτο παλιών και νέων ιμπεριαλιστικών σχεδιασμών στην ευρύτερη περιοχή, που συζητήθηκαν και στην πρόσφατη Σύνοδο Κορυφής του ΝΑΤΟ στις Βρυξέλλες (Ιούλιος 2018). Την ίδια στιγμή, σε περίοδο ανέχειας για το λαό μας η κυβέρνηση δαπανά τεράστια ποσά για στρατιωτικές δαπάνες στo πλαίσιο των ΝΑΤΟικών σχεδιασμών, μετατρέπει τη χώρα μας σε ένα απέραντο ορμητήριο αναβαθμίζοντας το ήδη υπάρχον δίκτυο Ευρωατλαντικών Βάσεων και στρατηγείων, δημιουργώντας και νέες (Αλεξανδρούπολη, Σύρος, Κάρπαθος κ.α.). Συνεχίζει να αναβαθμίζει την επικίνδυνη στρατιωτικοπολιτική συνεργασία με το Ισραήλ, την ίδια ώρα που το κράτος-δολοφόνος σφαγιάζει καθημερινά τον παλαιστινιακό λαό. Η ΕΕΔΥΕ καλεί σε μαζική συμμετοχή στην αντιιμπεριαλιστική συγκέντρωση στον Ιερό Βράχο της Ακρόπολης, την Πέμπτη 9 ΑΥΓΟΥΣΤΟΥ στις 8 μ.μ. και πορεία στο ιστορικό κέντρο της Αθήνας. Να καταδικάσουμε το έγκλημα των ΗΠΑ στη ΧΙΡΟΣΙΜΑ και το ΝΑΓΚΑΣΑΚΙ και να τιμήσουμε τα θύματα της ιμπεριαλιστικής θηριωδίας. Παλεύουμε και απαιτούμε:  Απεμπλοκή της Ελλάδας από τους ιμπεριαλιστικούς σχεδιασμούς και πολέμους.  Καμιά αλλαγή των συνόρων και των συνθηκών που τα καθορίζουν.  Να κλείσει η βάση της Σούδας και όλες οι ευρωατλαντικές βάσεις και στρατηγεία στην Ελλάδα.  Να επιστρέψουν όλες οι στρατιωτικές αποστολές από τις επιχειρήσεις του ΝΑΤΟ και της ΕΕ στο εξωτερικό.  Να καταργηθούν όλα τα πυρηνικά όπλα. Να απαγορευτούν οι πυρηνικές δοκιμές.  Όχι στη μεταφορά πυρηνικών στον Άραξο ή σε οποιαδήποτε άλλη περιοχή της Ελλάδας.  Αποδέσμευση από ΝΑΤΟ - ΕΕ με το λαό νοικοκύρη στον τόπο του». Σε άλλες πόλεις Τιμώντας τα θύματα της ιμπεριαλιστικής θηριωδίας των ΗΠΑ, πριν από 73 χρόνια στη Χιροσίμα και το Ναγκασάκι, η ΕΔΥΕΘ καλεί τους εργαζόμενους, τη νεολαία, τους φορείς κι όλο το λαό της Θεσσαλονίκης να πάρουν μαζικά μέρος στην αντιιμπεριαλιστική συγκέντρωση που οργανώνει την Πέμπτη 9 Αυγούστου στις 19.00 στο Άγαλμα Βενιζέλου (Διαβάστε ΕΔΩ αναλυτικά).

    Η Σ.Αραβία βομβάρδισε σχολικό λεωφορείο με ανήλικα παιδιά στην Υεμένη 09/08/2018 Γεμάτο παιδιά που δεν είχαν κλείσει τα δέκα τους χρόνια ήταν το λεωφορείο που βομβάρδισε η Σαουδική Αραβία στην Υεμένη, στο πλαίσιο των επιχειρήσεων που πραγματοποιεί με την στήριξη και καθοδήγηση του αμερικανικού Πενταγώνου. Το λεωφορείο κινούνταν στα βόρεια της χώρας, σε περιοχή που ελέγχεται από αντάρτες. Σύμφωνα με εκπροσώπους του Ερυθρού Σταυρού, που εργάζονται στην περιοχή, τα νοσοκομεία δέχθηκαν δεκάδες θύματα ενώ τοπικοί αξιωματούχοι κάνουν λόγο για τουλάχιστον 43 νεκρούς και περισσότερους από 60 τραυματίες – σε μεγάλο ποσοστό ανήλικα παιδιά. Οι βομβαρδισμοί που πραγματοποιεί η Σαουδική Αραβία στην Υεμένη από το 2015 έχουν οδηγήσει στο θάνατο τουλάχιστον πέντε χιλιάδες παιδιά και ευθύνονται για μια από τις μεγαλύτερες επιδημίες χολέρας που έχει γνωρίσει η ανθρωπότητα τις τελευταίες δεκαετίες. Σύμφωνα με την ανθρωπιστική οργάνωση Save the Children κάθε ημέρα πεθαίνουν 130 παιδιά στην Υεμένη Παρόλα αυτά χάρη σε μια επικοινωνιακή εκστρατεία που ξεκίνησε το Ριάντ τους τελευταίους μήνες, το μέγεθος της καταστροφής δεν φτάνει συχνά στα διεθνή μέσα ενημέρωσης. Οι βομβαρδισμοί της Σαουδικής Αραβίας πραγματοποιούνται με οπλισμό από τις ΗΠΑ, οι οποίες προσφέρουν και άλλους είδους επιμελητειακής και επιχειρησιακής υποστήριξης. Αρκετές ακόμη χώρες συνεχίζουν να προσφέρουν οπλισμό στη Σαουδική Αραβία ενώ ανάλογη προσπάθεια έκανε πριν από μήνες και η ελληνική κυβέρνηση. Απαντώντας σε σχετικές καταγγελίες ο διευθυντής της Κοινοβουλευτικής Ομάδας του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ, δήλωσε ότι αν η κυβέρνηση δεν πουλούσε όπλα στο Ριάντ θα έπρεπε να τα θάψει. “θεωρώ προτιμότερο να πάρουμε ένα όφελος πουλώντας κάποια όπλα, από το να υπάρξει ρήξη σε ένα πεδίο βολής και να τα διαλύσουμε ή να τα θάψουμε κάπου” δήλωσε ο Ζαχαριάδης μιλώντας στο ΘΕΜΑ 104,6. Τα κόμματα της αντιπολίτευσης, πλην του ΚΚΕ, δεν είχαν καταδικάσει την προσπάθεια πώλησης όπλων που θα μπορούσαν να χρησιμοποιηθούν σε επιθέσεις της Σαουδικής Αραβίας στην Υεμένη και σχολίαζαν μόνο τη διαδικασία που ακολουθήθηκε από το υπουργείο Άμυνας.

              Michael Moore, Errol Morris docs and new Halloween all coming to TIFF      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    New films from from famed documentarians Michael Moore, Errol Morris and Werner Herzog and — with the former two both turning their eyes on Donald Trump — along with new revamps of the Predator and Halloween franchises are all coming to this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, the fest revealed Thursday.

    Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 — named both in homage to his earlier Fahrenheit 9/11 and in reference to Nov. 9, 2016, the morning after Trump’s election victory — is described by the fest as “a radical and humorous look at the United States” under Trump. Morris’ American Dharma looks at controversial Trump strategist Steve Bannon. The film from Moore makes its world premiere here in Toronto, while American Dharma’s screening will be a North American first.

    Other docs coming include Herzog and André Singer’s Meeting Gorbachev, on the former Soviet leader; Rashida Jones and Alan Hicks’ Quincy, which profiles Jones’ endlessly quotable musical icon father, Quincy Jones; Victoria Stone and Mark Deeble’s The Elephant Queen, narrated by Chiwetel Ejiofor, tracing the epic journey of an elephant herd; Billy Corben’s Screwball, a true-crime comedy on doping in Major League Baseball; and Maxim Pozdorovkin’s The Truth About Killer Robots, investigating the lethal consequences of automation.

    The Midnight Madness slate, meanwhile, has the world premieres of both Shane Black’s Predator, starring Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn and Thomas Jane, and David Gordon Green’s Halloween, the 11th installment of the horror series that will once again star Jamie Lee Curtis but add Judy Greer and Will Patton. Midnight Madness programmer Peter Kuplowsky said both sequels “boldly and brilliantly builds upon its mythic iconography to thrilling and surprising effect.”

    Additional world premieres at this year’s Midnight Madness will include Emma Tammi’s The Wind; The Standoff at Sparrow Creek, directed by Henry Dunham; and Vasan Bala’s The Man Who Feels No Pain, the first Indian film ever selected for the Midnight Madness program.

              T&T drops five spots in Innovation Index      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    This country has dropped five spots on the 2018 Global Innovation Index Rankings (GII) and now ranks at 96 out of 126 countries.

    Last year, T&T ranked 91 on the GII which is co-published by Cornell University, INSEAD and the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), a specialised agency of the United Nations. In the current ratings, out of 100 this country scored 26.75, down from a score of 29.7 last year.

    The fact that the efficient ratio came down from .60 to .43, means T&T is underperforming given its level of development, said Dr Balraj Kistow, lecturer and programme director at the Arthur Lol Jack Global School of Business, when he announced the rankings yesterday.

    He said at a global level Switzerland, Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom ranked as the top four countries. Switzerland has held the top spot since 2014. The top 15 countries are mostly high income countries mainly from Europe. Latin America and the Caribbean scored an average of 30 out of 100, ranking just above Sub-Saharan Africa.

    According to the report, this country showed difficulty in converting high income into outputs.

    “Among high-income countries, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, and also Hungary stand out for producing many outputs for their given level of inputs. Singapore, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong (China), Canada, New Zealand, and Norway, as well as many resource-rich economies such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Trinidad and Tobago stand out as high-income economies that—assuming that both inputs and outputs are properly measured—tend to perform worse,” the report said.

    T&T was also one of the countries with the most missing values in the study, meaning there is need for proper data collection.

    “Despite requiring minimum levels of coverage, for several economies the number of missing data points remains very high,” the study said.

    Kistow said this is not the first time international bodies were unable to properly source data from T&T.

    However, this country is still ranked as one of the three high-income economies in the Caribbean and Latin American region—the others are Chile and Uruguay. T&T also showed strengths in terms of innovation linkages and ease of getting credit.

    Weaknesses were noted in the areas of research and development, growth of personal purchasing parity/GDP per worker, ecological sustainability and general infrastructure.

    “Innovation is now widely recognised as a central driver of economic growth and development. The Global Innovation Index (GII) aims to capture the multi-dimensional facets of innovation by providing a rich database of detailed metrics for 126 economies, which represent 90.8 per cent of the world’s population and 96.3 per cent of global GDP.

    “Today a wide range of high-, medium-, and low-income countries are using the GII as a tool for action to improve innovation performance—often at the prime ministerial and ministerial level, and often with specific cross-ministerial task forces comprising a large variety of relevant innovation stakeholders,” the report said.

    The 2018 report is the 11th edition of the GII and is dedicated to the theme of energy innovation. It analyses the energy innovation landscape of the next decade and identifies possible breakthroughs in fields such as energy production, storage, distribution, and consumption.

    Former Finance Minister and CEO of Eastern Credit Union Conrad Enill, commenting on the rankings, said corporate innovation is also important, especially when faced with disruption.


              Row over jailed activists won't affect oil shipments to Canada, Saudi minister says. Asset sale overblown. Trudeau stands up to trump and Saudi.       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Under 'longstanding policy,' kingdom's petroleum supplies aren't influenced by political considerations A row over human rights in Saudi Arabia will not have any impact on Saudi oil supplies to Canada, its energy minister said on Thursday, reassuring customers after Riyadh froze new trade with Canada and ruled out mediation efforts. Saudi Arabia, infuriated by Canada's demand last week that jailed activists in the kingdom be released immediately, expelled the Canadian ambassador on Sunday, blocked imports of Canadian grain, and ended state-backed educational and medical programs in Canada. The dispute has threatened to undermine Riyadh's foreign investment drive, a campaign already unsettled by a series of assertive political and diplomatic initiatives by the top oil exporter. Saudi Arabia has a "firm and long-standing policy" that petroleum supplies are not influenced by political considerations, Khalid al-Falih said in a statement. "The current diplomatic crisis between Saudi Arabia and Canada will not, in any way, impact Saudi Aramco's relations with its customers in Canada." The Financial Times reported on Wednesday that the Saudi central bank and state pension funds had instructed their overseas asset managers to sell their Canadian equities, bonds and cash holdings. The Saudi government's Center for International Communication (CIC) posted a tweet late on Wednesday saying "neither the government nor the Central Bank or the state pension fund has issued any instructions regarding the sale of Canadian assets." But it promptly deleted the post without providing an explanation. CIC did not respond to a request for comment. Foreign Affairs Minister Adel al-Jubeir on Wednesday ruled out any mediation efforts and called on Ottawa to "fix its big mistake," saying the kingdom was considering implementing more measures against Canada for interfering in Saudi Arabia's domestic affairs, without elaborating. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau later appeared to extend an olive branch, saying he would keep pressing Saudi Arabia on civil liberties, but also that the Gulf Arab state had made some progress on human rights. "Diplomatic talks continue ... we don't want to have poor relations with Saudi Arabia. It is a country that has great significance in the world, that is making progress in the area of human rights," Trudeau said. Saudi Arabia has in recent months detained several women's rights activists, some of whom had previously campaigned for the right to drive and an end to the kingdom's male guardianship system, the latest to be swept up in a government crackdown on activists, clerics and journalists. 'Impulsive policy-making' Since rising to power in 2015, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has courted Western allies to support his reform plans to modernize and open up the kingdom, offering billions of dollars in arms sales and promising to fight radicalism in the kingdom. The 32-year-old de facto ruler has launched a campaign of social and economic change, but has not eased the absolute monarchy's total ban on political activism. He has taken a more aggressive stance toward arch-rival Iran, began a three-year war in Yemen and led a boycott of fellow Gulf Arab state Qatar. The latest dispute with Canada is a sign that the prince is willing to risk riling international investors in order to remain in control of the process of change, RBC Capital Markets' Helima Croft wrote in a research note. "Western governments expressing concerns about human rights issues in the kingdom is nothing new and Saudi authorities have long pushed back against what they characterize as inappropriate interference in their internal affairs," she said. But Prince Mohammed is more willing than predecessors to throw caution to the wind, she said, and may be extra sensitive to outside criticism in light of recent challenges implementing his ambitious economic reform agenda. The row with Canada strengthens an impression of impulsive policy-making. "We have seen this before. They overreact and then cannot find a way to back down without losing face," a diplomat in the Gulf region said. In addition to the trade freeze, Riyadh has stopped sending patients to Canadian hospitals and suspended educational exchanges, moving Saudi scholars to other countries. Bilateral trade between Canada and Saudi Arabia is worth more than $3.9 billion a year. Canadian exports to Saudi Arabia were about $1.46 billion in 2017, or 0.2 per cent of the total value of Canadian exports.
              Basket Putra Asian Games 2018: Korsel Waspadai Tiongkok dan Iran      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Liputan6.com, Paju - Timnas basket putra Korea Selatan (Korsel) jadi salah satu favorit juara di Asian Games 2018. Namun, ada dua tim yang dinilai bisa menjegal langkah mereka. Dua tim itu adalah Tiongkok dan Iran.

    Bicara medali emas Asian Games 2018, sudah empat kali Korsel merebutnya. Sukses itu didapat pada Asian Games 1970, 1982, 2002, dan 2014 saat mereka jadi tuan rumah. Di kancah Asia, mereka juga jadi salah satu tim yang disegani.

    Dalam enam edisi terakhir Kejuaraan FIBA Asia, mereka empat kali mengamankan posisi ketiga. Meski begitu, bukan berarti Korsel merasa jemawa soal persaingan di Asian Games 2018. Ada beberapa tim yang bisa menggagalkan ambisi Korsel untuk mempertahankan medali emas.

    "Kami percaya Tiongkok dan Iran akan benar-benar kuat. Kami harus memfokuskan pertahanan. Saya selalu menekankan pentingnya pertahanan dan menjaga konsentrasi. Kami adalah tim yang lebih lemah ketimbang Tiongkok dan Iran," kata Hur Jae, pelatih basket putra Korsel, dilansir Yonhap News.

    Kebetulan, Iran pula yang jadi lawan Korsel pada laga final Asian Games 2018. Meski merebut medali emas, Korsel mendapatkan perlawanan sengit. Status juara baru bisa diamankan dengan keunggulan 79-77 atas Iran.

     

    Bawa Skuat Terbaik

    Kali ini, Korsel akan memulai perjuangannya dari Grup A yang dihuni tuan rumah Indonesia, Mongolia, dan Thailand. Untuk tingkat ini, tak akan sulit bagi Korsel merebut status penguasa Grup A karena tak ada tim yang mampu menandingi kehebatan mereka.

    Di sisi lain, skuat Korsel sendiri terbilang unik. Hur Jae membawa kedua putranya untuk masuk dalam daftar pemain. Mereka adalah Heo Ung dan Heo Hoon. Namun, ia tetap membawa dua pemain veteran sebagai senjata andalan, yakni Kim Sun-hyung dan Lee Jung-hyun.

    Di liga saat pemain asing mendominasi, Jung-hyun mampu menempati urutan ketiga dalam daftar pencetak poin terbanyak. Statistiknya 13,9 poin per laga. Sedangkan Sun-hyung, meski sempat diganggu cedera, ia berada di belakang Jung-hyun dalam daftar pemain lokal dengan poin terbanyak.

    "Setiap orang harus berjuang, tapi Kim Sun-hyung dan Lee Jung-hyun harus jadi pemimpin," jelas Hur Jae. Korsel sendiri akan memulai petualangannya dengan melawan Indonesia pada 14 Agustus. Dua hari kemudian, mereka melawan Mongolia dan Thailand pada 22 Agustus.

              Very critical need to upgrade LTAPP: Tourism exco      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    GEORGE TOWN: The Penang government expects the number of users of the Penang International Airport (LTAPP) to increase to 7.8 million this year, with the need to upgrade very critical.

    State Tourism Development, Heritage, Culture and Arts Committee chairman Yeoh Soon Hin said LTAPP's passenger capacity was only 6.5 million a year, but the figure was achieved with a total passenger movements of 6.7 million.

    He said 7.2 million passengers were recorded last year using LTAPP with an increase of 8.2% compared to the previous year.

    "With increased tourist arrivals every year, there is a critical need to upgrade LTAPP," he said during the winding-up session of the Penang State Assembly, here today.

    He said the state government welcomed the federal government's announcement to enlarge LTAPP as well as creating a low-cost carrier terminal in collaboration with AirAsia.

    Last Monday, Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng announced that Penang would receive a low-cost carrier terminal as a result of a cooperation with AirAsia.

    Yeoh said the state government would focus on efforts to increase the number of direct flights to Penang and also the frequency of flights.

    He said the state government had managed to secure five direct routes this year including from Doha through Qatar Airways, Bandar Acheh via Malindo Airline, Jakarta via Citilink, Hanoi via AirAsia and Phuket via AirAsia.

    "In addition, the frequencies of several direct flights continue to be increased this year, including from Hong Kong, Bangkok, Doha and Guangzhou," he said.

    Meanwhile, Yeoh said tourism based on business programmes or Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions were one of Penang's major tourism industries.

    In 2017, Penang hosted 2,511 programmes involving 267,518 participants and utilising 457,806 rooms a night ... these figures have contributed to an estimated economic impact of over RM1 billion for tourism based on business programmes, he said.

    Hence, he said the Penang government would continue its efforts to attract more international programmes to the state. — Bernama

    Northbrook, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/09/2018 -- The market has been witnessing substantial growth in recent years, owing to the evolution of high speed network technologies and the rising adoption of cloud platforms.

              Comment on A Very Strange Day As KSE Take Control by iBtM      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Enjoyed the post, Holic and the positive spin. I’ve read a multitude of points of view on KSE’s ascendancy. These have ranged from “Now that he need no longer consider the will of other shareholders Kronke will pump multi-millions in for new players” to “Unconstrained, with opaque finances, he’ll take money out by the millions and spend it on hookers and crack”. Neither of these is likely. Kronke has been consistent from the outset that Arsenal’s operations will be self-sustaining. Over the period of his tenure he’s seen the value of his asset roughly double (from £10k to £20k per share, good for him). He’s also seen the clubs annual football revenues roughly double (£235M to £422M, good for Arsenal) and has sanctioned all of these revenues being ploughed back into the club in accord with the self-sustaining model. So in effect, each year Stan says to Ivan/Arsene, now Ivan/Unai; “Here’s £420M. Feel free to spend it all as you wish, and go off and win the League/Cup. BUT at year’s end, make sure there isn’t red ink on the bottom line.” What’s not to like? He appears to delegate well on these terms and doesn’t delve into the management team’s knitting in the style of the Russian fella at the Bus Stop in Fulham. Can he really be blamed for Arsenal only winning three FA Cups and three Community Shields (and what a pleasure it was to be present at each of them) in the last four years of Arsene’s tenure? Concern is often expressed that on two occasions the club has paid KSE £3M for services. Peanuts really on a total spend of £400M. It’s not impossible to imagine that these monies were compensation for expert advice contributing to revenues exceeding £400M, in which case, it was money well spent. I’m doubting that £6M was spent on hookers and crack. Arsenal competes on the same terms as ManU. The Mancs do better than Arsenal by £100M+ because of superior commercial deals (maybe the Glazers pay more than £3M for expert advice ☺ ). This is the area in which Stan needs to look for improvement. £100M+ buys a Pogba+ before Arsenal has even dipped into available transfer funds. It’s difficult to win the League spending £420M when someone else spends £550M. Continuing to compete, like ManU, on sound business terms is infinitely more likely than a U-turn transition to 'sugar daddy' style investment in the manner of Man $ity or Chel$ki. Personally I prefer it to being paid by Qatar, Abu Dhabi or Russian sources to buy silverware. I respect others’ views to the contrary and also Guardiola's talents. As said earlier by Professor Bath, KSE’s rise is not something I’m going to get my knickers in a twist about. Steve T bought a beverage? Is that a pink pig flying past my window? Now that is something to get excited about.

              This Log Cabin Has Collapsed      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Commentary, Log Cabin Republicans, Republican Party, Georgia

    By endorsing a homophobe — and blasting a female black candidate — the Georgia chapter of the LGBTQ Republican group highlights its own irrelevancy.

    CommentaryLog Cabin RepublicansRepublican PartyGeorgiaThis Log Cabin Has CollapsedAmanda Kerri

    Way back in the before times of 2016, I wrote a pretty apologetic article about Log Cabin Republicans. Way back in March of 2016, which seems so long ago, it wasn’t that bad of a take, and in rational universe it would still be. Well, we don’t live in a rational universe; much less a rationally-run democracy.

    In the times before the Republican Party was led by a guy who’s probably about to tweet himself into prison, it made sense to arguably be a fiscally-conservative LGBTQ person and side with the Republicans while trying to push it away from its ties to the religious right. Being LGBTQ doesn’t default you to having progressive politics (look up Roy Cohn) by a long shot, so it made partial sense. In the before times. I can’t justify that take anymore, and I can’t rationalize why any queer person would still be a Republican in 2018.

    Last week, the Georgia Log Cabin Republicans endorsed Brian Kemp, a vocal advocate for “religious freedom” legislation, for governor. Why? Just why? In the chapter's 23-year history, this is the first candidate for governor they’ve ever endorsed. They said they wanted him to win against the “radical liberal Stacey Abrams,” a black woman who’s very pro-LGBTQ. I’m guessing by “radical liberal” they mean, “bad for my wallet.” That’s the only possible reason why I could fathom why any LGBTQ person would oppose anyone on the left at this point. With Republicans putting Mike “Reparative Therapy” Pence in as vice president, a William Faulkner villain as attorney general trying to create some sort of religious liberty commission to circumvent basic equality, and Trump revoking pro-LGBTQ regulations through executive orders, they’ve gone on a bigotry bender like someone who’s fallen off the wagon. 

    Not that long ago, I got into a little Twitter spat with a gay guy who was all about Trump and MAGA. Instead of name calling and shouting at him, I tried to get him to see that Trump and conservatives weren’t the best people for LGBTQ folks. He had a pathological hatred of Muslims and kept citing how ISIS has executed gay people by throwing them off buildings, and asking why I love Muslims more than I love LGBTQ people. What a canard.

    He insisted Trump was out to protect LGBTQ people and was tough on the gay-killing Muslims. I pointed out how President Ergodan in Turkey had used police to brutally suppress Pride celebrations, and Trump had no problem doing business with the leaders of Muslim countries such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and others. He basically handwaved away those facts by saying how he wanted Trump's businesses to succeed and how much he wanted good commerce. Look, don’t ask me how he managed to pull off those mental gymnastics because I can’t even begin to explain it. Yet there he was, attacking me, a liberal trans woman, for loving Muslims, but ignoring that Trump and Republicans have not only done nothing to address the treatment of LGBTQ people in some of these countries, but actually profited by doing business with them, while spreading anti-LGBTQ sentiments here in America. 

    The Georgia Log Cabin Republicans also said they opposed Abrams because she was supported by “liberals and socialists” and was exploiting the LGBTQ community by “putting identity politics over the real needs of Georgians.” I know and most of you know, that advocating for equal rights and protections for minority groups isn’t a bad thing. You can do it without hurting other people’s rights, or hurting businesses or the economy. I say economy because that’s all it seems to come down to. Well, that and probably a bit of whiteness.

    Ultimately, I can’t fathom the mindset that it takes to believe that money and other forms of privilege will save gay Republicans from discrimination. It takes a sort of selfishness and willful blindness to look around at what is happening and saying, “Yeah, I’ll be fine.” Money doesn’t go far when you’re denied a job to keep replenishing it. That money and privilege is useless if you’re denied entry into places to spend it. It most certainly doesn’t help you when they build an entire system to oppress you to the point no amount of privilege and money saves you from being punished by it when it criminalizes a core component of who you are.

    The Log Cabin Republicans don’t quite understand that there is no future in their party for them. They are useful tokens to shield behind and be exploited to convince the rubes that they aren’t bigots. They’ve tried for years to push their party to drop anti-LGBTQ attitudes to absolutely no success and actually have stood there and watched as they’ve double-downed on it all over the country through state and local governments passing discriminatory laws. It’s readily apparent it’s all about the money, and most likely hetero-normative and white privilege that guide their decision-making. What they don’t see that’s readily apparent to anyone who’s familiarized themselves with history, is that being the token just means that they get to be the last ones who get punished; but punished none the less. There is no reason to pity or reason with them, they made their choice, let them have it.

              Korsel Khawatirkan Tiongkok dan Iran di Basket Asian Games      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Timnas basket putra Korea Selatan (Korsel) cukup dijagokan untuk merebut emas di Asian Games 2018. Namun, Tiongkok dan Iran bisa menjegal langkah mereka.

    Bicara medali emas Asian Games 2018, sudah empat kali Korsel merebutnya. Sukses itu didapat pada Asian Games 1970, 1982, 2002, dan 2014 saat mereka jadi tuan rumah. Di kancah Asia, mereka juga jadi salah satu tim yang disegani.

    Dalam enam edisi terakhir Kejuaraan FIBA Asia, mereka empat kali mengamankan posisi ketiga. Meski begitu, bukan berarti Korsel merasa jemawa soal persaingan di Asian Games 2018. Ada beberapa tim yang bisa menggagalkan ambisi Korsel untuk mempertahankan medali emas.

    "Kami percaya Tiongkok dan Iran akan benar-benar kuat. Kami harus memfokuskan pertahanan. Saya selalu menekankan pentingnya pertahanan dan menjaga konsentrasi. Kami adalah tim yang lebih lemah ketimbang Tiongkok dan Iran," kata Hur Jae, pelatih basket putra Korsel, dilansir Yonhap News.

    Kebetulan, Iran pula yang jadi lawan Korsel pada laga final Asian Games 2018. Meski merebut medali emas, Korsel mendapatkan perlawanan sengit. Status juara baru bisa diamankan dengan keunggulan 79-77 atas Iran.

     

    Bawa Skuat Terbaik

    Kali ini, Korsel akan memulai perjuangannya dari Grup A yang dihuni tuan rumah Indonesia, Mongolia, dan Thailand. Untuk tingkat ini, tak akan sulit bagi Korsel merebut status penguasa Grup A karena tak ada tim yang mampu menandingi kehebatan mereka.

    Di sisi lain, skuat Korsel sendiri terbilang unik. Hur Jae membawa kedua putranya untuk masuk dalam daftar pemain. Mereka adalah Heo Ung dan Heo Hoon. Namun, ia tetap membawa dua pemain veteran sebagai senjata andalan, yakni Kim Sun-hyung dan Lee Jung-hyun.

    Di liga saat pemain asing mendominasi, Jung-hyun mampu menempati urutan ketiga dalam daftar pencetak poin terbanyak. Statistiknya 13,9 poin per laga. Sedangkan Sun-hyung, meski sempat diganggu cedera, ia berada di belakang Jung-hyun dalam daftar pemain lokal dengan poin terbanyak.

    "Setiap orang harus berjuang, tapi Kim Sun-hyung dan Lee Jung-hyun harus jadi pemimpin," jelas Hur Jae. Korsel sendiri akan memulai petualangannya dengan melawan Indonesia pada 14 Agustus. Dua hari kemudian, mereka melawan Mongolia dan Thailand pada 22 Agustus.

    Pembagian Grup Basket Putra

    Grup A: Korsel, Mongolia, Indonesia, Thailand

    Grup B: Iran, Filipina, Siria, Uni Emirat Arab

    Grup C: Jepang, Qatar, Taiwan, Hong Kong

    The Fifth Generation WarfareBy: Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld and Alyssa A. Lappen FrontPageMagazine.com | Friday, June 20, 2008



    [From Armed Groups: Studies in National Security, Counterterrorism, and Counterinsurgency; Edited by Jeffrey Norwitz; U.S. Naval War College, June 2008, chapter 28.]


    Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld is author of Funding Evil; How Terrorism is Financed and How to Stop It. She is director of the American Center for Democracy and member of the Committee on the Present DangerAlyssa A. Lappen, Senior Fellow at the ACD, is a former editor for ForbesCorporate FinanceWorking Woman and Institutional Investor.


    From the text:

    The United States and the West cannot win the war against radical Islam merely with the most sophisticated military strategies. Winning requires understanding the role of shari'a and the Muslim Brotherhood in developing a global ideological and political movement supported by a parallel "Islamic" financial system to exploit and undermine Western economies and markets. This movement is the foundation and the major funding source for the political, economic, and military initiatives of the global Islamic movement.1 

    Shari'a finance is a new weapon in the arsenal of what might be termed fifth-generation warfare (5GW).2The perpetrators include both states and organizations, advancing a global totalitarian ideology disguised as a religion. The end goal is to impose that ideology worldwide, making the Islamic "nation," or ummah, supreme.3
    ...
    Shari'a is the set of Islamic laws established by Muslim jurists, based on the Qur'an and deeds of the prophet Muhammad, as recorded beginning more than 1,200 years ago. Its end goal, for all time, is establishing a world ruled entirely by Islam and the harsh shari'a laws. These laws govern every aspect of daily life and prohibit individual, political, and religious freedoms.

    ...

     FINANCIAL JIHAD

    Funding the jihad, i.e., financial jihad, or Al Jihad bi-al-Mal, is mandated by many verses in the Qur'an, such as chapter 61, verses 10.11: “you . . . should strive for the cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives,” and chapter 49, verse 15: “The [true] believers are only those who . . . strive with their wealth and their lives for the cause of Allah.” This has been reiterated throughout Islamic history and in recent times. “Financial Jihad [is] . . . more important . . . than self-sacrificing,” according to Saudi and Muslim Brotherhood (MB) spiritual leader Hamud bin Uqla al-Shuaibi.6

    Qatar-based Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi, one of the most prominent Sunni scholars in the world today, reiterated the legal justification for “financial jihad [Al-Jihad bi-al-Mal]” in a lecture he gave on 4 May 2002 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). According to him, “collecting money for the mujahideen (jihad fighters . . . ) was not a donation or a gift but a duty necessitated by the sacrifices they made for the Muslim nation.” 7

    HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT

    The origins of the modern financial jihad infrastructure, including all Islamic economic and financial regulatory organizations like the 1991-Bahrain-registered and -based Accounting and Auditing Organization for Islamic Financial Institutions (AAOIFI), date back to the 1920s and were an invention of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna. He designed political, economic, and financial foundations to enable Muslims to fulfill a key form of jihad mandated by the Qur'an---financial jihad.8

    He viewed finance as a critical weapon to undermine the infidels---and “work towards establishing an Islamic rule on earth.” 9 He was first to understand that to achieve world domination, Muslims needed an independent Islamic financial system to parallel and later supersede the Western economy. Al-Banna's contemporaries and successors (such as the late Sayed Qutb and current Yusuf al-Qaradawi) set his theories and practices into motion, developing shari'a-based terminology and mechanisms to advance the financial jihad--- “Islamic economics,” finance, and banking.10

    Early 1930s MB attempts to establish Islamic banking in India failed. Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser shut down the second attempt, in 1964, after only one year, later arresting and expelling the Muslim Brotherhood for attempts to kill him.11

    But Saudi Arabia welcomed this new wave of Egyptian dissidents, as did King Saud bin Abdel Aziz earlier waves in 1954 and 1961.12 Their ideas so appealed to him and his clerics that in 1961, Saud funded the MB's establishment of the Islamic University in Medina to proselytize its fundamentalist Islamic ideology, especially to foreign students.13 In 1962, the MB convinced the king to launch a global financial joint venture, which became the cornerstone and engine to spread Islam worldwide. This venture created charitable foundations, which the MB oversees and from which most Islamic terrorist groups benefit.14

    The first were the Muslim World League (MWL) and Rabitta al-Alam al-Islami, uniting Islamic radicals from 22 nations and spinning a web of many other charities with hundreds of offices worldwide.15 In 1978, the kingdom backed another MB initiative, the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO), which, with all these "charities," is implicated for funding al Qaeda, the 9/11 attacks, Hamas, and others.16 These "charities" are used to advance the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi political agenda, namely empowering the ummah and imposing worldwide shari'a. “I don't like this word 'donations',”. al-Qaradawi told BBC Panorama on 30 July 2006. “I like to call it Jihad with money, because God has ordered us to fight enemies with our lives and our money.”17

    In 1969, the Saudis convened Arab and Muslim states to unify the “struggle for Islam,” and have ever since been the Organization of the Islamic Conference's (OIC's) major sponsor. The 56 OIC members include Iran, Sudan, and Syria. The Jidda-based, “pending the liberation of Jerusalem,” OIC's charter mandates and coordinates “support [of] the struggle of the Palestinian people, . . . recovering their rights and liberating their occupied territories.” 18 The OIC charter includes all the MB principles. Its first international undertaking in 1973 was to establish the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) “in accordance with the principles of the shariah,”19 as prescribed by the MB---and to launch the fast-growing petrodollar-based Islamic financing market. The IDB, more a development than commercial bank, was established largely “to promote Islamic banking worldwide.” 20 “[A]n Islamic organization must serve God... and ultimately sustain ...the growth and advancement of the Islamic way of life,” writes Nasser M. Suleiman in “Corporate Governance in Islamic Banking.”21

    And the IDB has done just that. Between 1975 to 2005, the IDB approved over $50 billion in funding to Muslim countries,22 ostensibly to develop their economic and educational infrastructures, but effected little regional economic impact. Its educational efforts, however, paid huge yields---via the rapid and significant spread of radical Islam worldwide. Moreover, in 2001 alone, the IDB transferred $538 million23 raised publicly by Saudi and Gulf royal telethons to support the Palestinian intifada and families of Palestinian suicide bombers. The IDB has also channeled UN funds to Hamas, as documented by bank records discovered in the West Bank and Gaza. Yet, the IDB received UN observer status in 2007.24

    According to a 1991 U.S. Library of Congress report on Sudan, the IDB also supported Faisal Islamic Bank, established in 1977 under Sudan's Faisal Islamic Bank Act by Saudi prince Muhammad ibn Faisal Al Saud and managed by local Muslim Brotherhood members and their party, the National Islamic Front. Soon other political groups and parties formed their own Islamic banks. Together, Sudanese Islamic banks then acquired 20 percent of the country's deposits “providing the financial basis to turn Sudan into an Islamic state in 1983, and promoting the Islamic governmental policies to date.”25 Sudan Islamized its banking in 1989. However, Pakistan was the first country to officially Islamize its banking practices, in 1979.

    Rising oil revenues encouraged MB leaders to formalize al-Banna's vision. In 1977 and 1982, they convened in Lugano, Switzerland, to chart a master plan to co-opt Western economic “foundations, capitalism and democracy” in a treatise entitled “Towards a Worldwide Strategy for Islamic Policy,” also known as The Project. MB spiritual leader al-Qaradawi wrote the explicit document, dated 1 December 1982.26 The 12-point strategy includes diktats to establish the Islamic state and gradual, parallel work to control local power centers . . . using institutional work as means to this end. This requires “special Islamic economic, social and other institutions,” and “the necessary economic institutions to provide financial support” to spread fundamentalist Islam.27

    Consequently, the IDB founded the AAOIFI in 1990. AAOIFI members include the Saudi Dallah al Baraka Group, al-Rajhi Banking & Investment Corporation, and Kuwait Finance House28---all implicated in funding al Qaeda and other MB offspring, according to Richard Clarke, the former national coordinator for security, infrastructure protection, and counter-terrorism.29 The 18 AAOIFI members also include Iran and Sudan, both on the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctions list; Iran is a U.S. State Department-designated terror-sponsoring state, too. UAE banks wired most of the funding for the 9/11 attacks.30

    In addition, the “de facto Islamic Central Bank,” the Islamic Financial Services Board (IFSB),31 was established in 2002 in Kuala Lumpur “to absorb the 11 September shock and reinforce the stability of Islamic finance.” Chairing the organizers' meeting, then Malaysian Prime Minister Mohamed Mahathir stated, “A universal Islamic banking system is a jihad worth pursuing to abolish this slavery [to the West].” IFSB members include the central banks of Iran, Sudan, and Syria (all designated state sponsors of terrorism) and the Palestinian Monetary Authority (PMA), which is widely documented since its inception to be a terror funder.32

    According to Dallah al Baraka Group and Islamic Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) president Saleh Kamel,33 more than 400 Islamic financial institutions34 currently operate in 75 countries.35 They now hold more than $800 billion in assets 36 growing 15 percent annually. HSBC, UBS, J.P. Morgan Chase, Deutsche Bank, Lloyds TSB, and BNP Paribas are but a few that offer Islamic banking and shari'a-based products to their Western clients---and promote them as “ethical investments.”

    Billionaire Sheikh Saleh Abdullah Kamel and his family, like other wealthy Saudis, have built their terror-funding-affiliated $3.5 billion Dallah al Baraka Group to service the shari'a.37 Its business, finance, and media sectors incorporate agriculture, communication, health care, real estate, tourism, trade, transportation, and finance companies---including 10 banks and many leasing and finance firms, Arab Radio & Television and Arab Digital Distribution, and the International Information & Trading Service Co., producing the Top 1000 Saudi Companies Directory, among other publications.

    Rapidly rising oil prices fill the coffers of Islamic banks, fuel the expansion of shari'a economics and financial jihad---and threaten the United States and the entire non-Muslim world, in real time. Indeed, shortly after 9/11, Osama bin Laden called on Muslims “to concentrate on hitting the U.S. economy through all possible means. . . . Look for the key pillars of the U.S. economy. Strike the key pillars of the enemy again and again and they will fall as one.” 38

    The NASDAQ acquisition, purchases of over 52 percent of the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and 47.6 percent of OMX (Nordic exchange), and vigorous expansion of shari'a finance all steadily implement al-Banna.s plan to spread and ultimately impose shari'a worldwide.

    Bourse Dubai in December 2006 loudly proclaimed its new conversion to “shari'a compliance and accounting practices.”39 Yet, responding to a specific inquiry on the Islamic nature of Bourse Dubai from the Partnership for New York City on 22 October 2007, Bourse Dubai denied being an Islamic exchange.40Still unaware of the implications of importing shari'a finance, however, hoards of Westerners eagerly attend such pricey events as the October 2007 Islamic Finance Summit in New York,41 which focused on the “innovations in shari'a compliant finance.” According to an eyewitness, when one participant timidly inquired, “What is shari'a law?” a leading Islamic scholar responded from the podium: “It's good for you.”

    Lost on the attendees was the inescapable fact that shari'a calls for the supremacy of
    Islam, thus negating the U.S. Constitution.42

    From Ian:

    IDF Blog: Israel Under Attack
    Hamas began shooting projectiles at Israeli civilians starting at 7:37PM on Wednesday evening and launched them consistently until early Thursday morning.

    In response, IDF fighter jets struck 12 terror targets in Gaza, including a factory used to manufacture parts for terror tunnels and concrete, a maritime terror tunnel shaft along the coast, and several terror sites in military compounds, among them rocket manufacturing facilities and a central logistical military complex.

    The factory used to manufacture parts for terror tunnels was intended to be used as a hotel, but was overtaken by the Hamas terror organization in 2012. The factory manufactures parts for terror tunnels under the guise of civilian infrastructure.

    In 2012, during Operation Pillar of Defense, senior Hamas members used the building as shelter, believing the IDF would not target a civilian hotel construction site. In this building, Hamas terrorists continued to plan fighting and command rocket launching units. Months later, in 2013, Hamas took over the site entirely, blocked the entrance, and began establishing a concrete factory under the guise of a civilian construction site. The factory manufactured concrete parts designed exclusively for terror tunnels, including reinforcements, flooring, and concrete arches, which have no civilian use.

    Over 150 rockets launched into Israel, woman seriously injured
    A woman was seriously injured in Israel early Thursday morning when a rocket launched from the Gaza Strip hit a home in the Eshkol regional council near the Palestinian enclave.

    The woman was a 30-year-old foreign worker from Thailand. She suffered injuries to her abdomen and limbs. Another person was lightly injured, and several were treated for shock.

    Thursday morning’s injuries brought the total of wounded on the Israeli side to five in the current cycle of violence.

    Rocket barrages by the Hamas terror group continued throughout the night. The military said over 150 rockets and mortar shells were launched at Israeli communities since Wednesday evening.

    Most of the rockets hit open areas. The Iron Dome defense system — which targets only missiles projected to strike communities — destroyed 25 of the rockets.
    PA has paid $294,332 to the Sbarro bombers
    17 years ago today a suicide bomber entered the Sbarro pizza shop in downtown Jerusalem, detonated his suicide vest and murdered 15 people. The murdered in the August 9, 2001 bombing included 7 children as well as a couple and three of their children, an American citizen and a Brazilian citizen. (See their names and pictures below.) 130 people were injured.

    The suicide bomber was Izz al-Din Al-Masri. His family has received $50,124 as a reward for his suicide bombing.

    The terrorist who planned the attack and brought the bomber to Sbarro was Ahlam Tamimi. Tamimi was arrested in September 2001 and received 16 life sentences. In 2011, Tamimi was released as part of the deal to free Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit from his Hamas captors. For her time in prison she has been rewarded by the PA with salary payments of at least $52,681.

    The suicide belt was built by Hamas bomb- builder Abdallah Barghouti. Barghouti was arrested in May 2003, and received 67 life sentences - 15 of them for building the bomb used to murder the people in Sbarro. He has received salary payments from the PA of at least $191,526.

    By September 2018, the PA will have cumulatively rewarded Barghouti, Tamimi, and the family of Al-Masri with at least $294,332.




    Seth J. Frantzman: To the brink of war: How Hamas and Israel got here
    The larger regional picture is that Egypt has been trying hard to restrain Hamas and also find a path to a ceasefire. But Egypt is not alone. The Palestinian Authority has sought to isolate Gaza by reducing remittances and payments there. That led to rare protests in June by Palestinians in Ramallah against the PA. Hamas therefore is not only trying to deal with a ceasefire with Israel but also trying to sort out a reconciliation agreement with the PA. That’s why the assassination attempt on Hamdallah in March is important and sets the scene for the conflict that began in late March.

    Hamas says it wants Israel to end the 10-year blockade of Gaza and to ease up restrictions on goods flowing to the strip. But the US administration under Donald Trump is having none of the Hamas stories about who is responsible for the Strip’s problems. Jason Greenblatt said in May that Hamas had taken the area back to the Stone Age. He made similar statements in opeds and discussions in March and June. Then, in July, Jared Kushner, Greenblatt and US Ambassador David Friedman authored a piece at The Washington Post again pressuring Hamas. Hamas sees the US officials as “spokesmen for the Israeli occupation,” as it called them in July. But it’s clear that the US sees sorting out Gaza as a key to its proposed “deal of the century.”

    A last piece of the puzzle is Qatar, which has also sought a role in dealing with Gaza. A major investor in reconstruction and also a previous backer of Hamas, it wants to be relevant. Towards that end, it has sought to play up the chances for discussions with Israel and positioned itself as playing a positive role.

    This is part of a larger struggle between Qatar and Egypt and Qatar and Saudi Arabia. In this sense Gaza is a sort of “prize” between Washington, Qatar, Egypt, Israel, the UN and the PA. Hamas’s desire to terrorize Israel and seem relevant, and the fact that Iran is also funding Hamas and wants it to be a thorn in Israel’s side, is thus just a part of a much larger struggle going on in which each side wants something else out of Israel and Hamas and Gaza.

    Adding up all those agendas, including the rising crescendo of war that has built since March, led to August 8.
    After Beersheba hit by rocket, IDF conducts new strikes in northern Gaza
    The Israeli Air Force launched a renewed offensive against targets in the northern Gaza Strip, Palestinian media reported on Thursday evening, hours after a rocket fired from the Palestinian enclave struck just outside the southern city of Beersheba.

    Minutes after the Israeli strike began, incoming rocket sirens blared in the Eshkol region of southern Israel.

    There were no immediate reports of Israeli injuries or damage.

    The Israeli military would not immediately confirm the renewed bombing raids in Gaza, apparently in accordance with army protocol to wait until the planes involved have all returned to base.

    According to the Hamas-affiliated Shehab news outlet, the target of the strike was a building west of Gaza City. Palestinian media reported that nearly the entire structure was destroyed as the Israeli aircraft fired multiple missiles at it.
    Liberman: ‘We will do whatever is necessary’ to stop Gaza rocket barrages
    Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman spoke with the leaders of rocket-battered southern communities Thursday and told them the military would do whatever it takes to end missile attacks from the Gaza Strip, after a series of barrages injured seven people.

    The Israeli military said over 180 rockets and mortar shells were fired at southern Israel from the Gaza Strip since Wednesday night. Residents said it was the worst night of attacks since 2014’s Operation Protective Edge.

    The rocket attacks and reprisal airstrikes by Israel continued throughout Thursday morning.

    Liberman talked with Alon Davidi, mayor of Sderot, and the leaders of other regional councils bordering on Gaza, the Defense Ministry said in a statement.

    The minister praised the mayors and the residents of their communities for their “stamina and the backing they are giving the IDF and the security forces,” saying “we will do whatever is necessary” to restore calm to the south.

    Meanwhile, opposition leader Tzipi Livni of the Zionist Union faction criticized the government for “losing control” of the situation after months of violent border clashes and exchanges of fire between the IDF and Hamas-led terror groups in Gaza that have escalated into several rounds of Palestinian rocket attacks on southern Israel and Israeli airstrikes on Hamas targets.
    Israeli official: Hamas dealt a ‘severe blow’ in Gaza airstrikes
    Israel has dealt the Hamas terrorist group a “severe blow” with its airstrikes on the Gaza Strip, a diplomatic official said Thursday, shortly after a rocket fired from the Palestinian enclave reached the furthest into Israeli territory since the 2014 war.

    “Hamas has suffered a severe blow,” the official said. “Israel will continue to act with force.”

    The remarks came shortly after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman finished meeting with top Israel Defense Forces brass at military headquarters in Tel Aviv. The security cabinet convened there at 6:00 p.m. to discuss the situation in the south.

    “The prime minister and defense minister ordered the IDF to prepare for every possibility,” the official said.

    Though the frequency of rocket attacks declined by Thursday afternoon, a projectile launched from Gaza landed north of the southern city of Beersheba, some 40 kilometers (25 miles) from the Strip.

    This was the first attack directed against Beersheba since the 2014 war, known in Israel as Operation Protective Edge.








    These Israelis have 15 seconds to take cover from Hamas rockets

    UN envoy concerned by rocket attacks
    Nickolay Mladenov, the UN envoy to the Middle East, on Wednesday expressed concern over the latest escalation in Gaza.

    “I am deeply alarmed by the recent escalation of violence between Gaza and Israel, and particularly by today’s multiple rockets fired towards communities in southern Israel,” he said in a statement.

    “For months I have been warning that the humanitarian, security and political crisis in Gaza risks a devastating conflict that nobody wants. The UN has engaged with Egypt and all concerned parties in an unprecedented effort to avoid such a development,” continued Mladenov.

    While “collective efforts have prevented the situation from exploding until now,” he said, “if the current escalation however is not contained immediately, the situation can rapidly deteriorate with devastating consequences for all people.”
    Hamas Blackmail, Media Silence
    Hamas's strategy is to remain in power forever; to achieve that goal, it is prepared to do anything. Hamas has always acted out of its own narrow interests while holding the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip hostage to its extremist ideology and repressive regime.

    "Those who claim to be confronting Israel are nothing but corrupt, extortionist bribe-takers. Today, every politician in the Gaza Strip is well aware of the fact that the corruption at the border crossings has become the norm of the official establishment, and not actions by individuals or a certain apparatus." — Hassan Asfour, former Palestinian Authority minister, human rights activist and political columnist.

    Here one always needs to ask: where is the role of the international media in exposing Hamas's corruption and exploitation of its own people? Why is it that the mainstream media in the West does not want to pay any attention to what Asfour and other Palestinians are saying? The answer is always simple: As far as foreign journalists are concerned, if Israel is not the one asking for bribes or blackmailing the Palestinians, there is no story there.
    Gaza official: ‘Current round of fighting is over, calm depends on Israel’
    A Palestinian official in the Gaza Strip declared that the latest round of violence had ended early Thursday afternoon and that armed groups in the enclave would maintain the calm if Israel did the same.

    The announcement, made to a number of news outlets in Gaza, was quickly followed by a fresh attack on southern Israel from the Strip, which triggered sirens in the area but appeared to have hit in an open field, causing neither injury nor damage.

    “The current round in Gaza has ended. The resistance responded to the enemy’s crimes in Gaza. The continuation of calm in Gaza depends on (Israel’s) behavior,” said the official from a joint command center for a number of Palestinian terrorist groups, notably the Gaza-ruling Hamas.

    A source in the Hamas terrorist group confirmed the cessation to AFP.

    On Tuesday, Hamas vowed to avenge the deaths of two of its members killed by IDF tank fire after the army mistakenly thought a Hamas military exercise had been a cross-border attack. On Wednesday afternoon, the military warned that it was anticipating a revenge attack by Hamas.


    Honest Reporting: HR Visits the Gaza Border
    Since last night, terror groups fired nearly 200 rockets and mortar shells at southern Israeli communities. The IDF responded against Hamas military infrastructure.

    Just the day before, we brought a group of 30 HonestReporting supporters to Israeli communities near the Gaza border, to see the situation in person. We were followed by a crew from i24 News and a segment will be coming out shortly on that channel.

    The residents we visited in Kibbutz Nahal Oz, Kibbutz Alumim and Asaf Siboni live under real threat. Yet they also live in a beautiful natural area, with homes and communities to which they are genuinely dedicated. And you may be surprised at the empathy and complexity with which they view their neighbours in Gaza.

    It’s hard to appreciate the depth of this reality until you meet the people and see their lives, in person. So that’s exactly what we did.
    Foreign Ministry slams BBC 'misleading' reporting on Gaza rockets
    The Foreign Ministry formally complained to the BBC about its reporting on the violence in the South on Thursday.

    A BBC headline stated “Gaza air strikes ‘kill woman and child’ after rockets hit Israel,” quoting the Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry. The article’s subheadline said “Militants... fired dozens of rockets,” when the count had gone up to over 150. Its tweet leading to the article reads: “Israeli air strikes ‘kill woman and toddler.’”

    Foreign Ministry Spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon responded on Twitter: “Your title is deliberately misleading!!! Israel reacted following the launching of over 100 rockets at Southern Israel, targeting and injuring civilians. Change it immediately!!!”

    An hour later, with the article unchanged, Nahshon tweeted that he is filing a formal complaint.

    “This title is a deliberate misrepresentation of reality (that’s the polite equivalent of ‘this is a LIE’, if you don’t get it),” Nahshon wrote. “Israelis were targeted by Hamas and IDF acts to protect them. Change it IMMEDIATELY!!!”
    Israel demanded - and BBC changed its headline
    In a headline, BBC claimed that "Israeli air strikes 'kill pregnant woman and baby.'"

    Foreign Ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Nahshon tweeted, "@BBCWorld this is a formal complaint by @IsraelMFA ."

    "This title is a deliberate misrepresentation of reality ( that’s the polite equivalent of ' this is a LIE', if you don’t get it). Israelis were targeted by Hamas and IDF acts to protect them.Change it IMMEDIATELY!!! @IsraelMFA."

    At the same time, a formal complaint was sent to BBC, demanding they change the misleading title.

    After some time, BBC changed its title to "Gaza air strikes ‘kill woman and child’ after rockets hit Israel."

    Honest Reporting: A Night of Rockets and Headline Fails
    Residents of southern Israel spent the night in bomb shelters as Palestinians fired a heavy barrage of rockets and mortars (nearly 200, according to the most recent numbers I saw). The IDF retaliated with air strikes on more than 100 Hamas terror sites.

    As we expected, we came across a few headline fails. Headlines matter because many people don’t read articles, just skimming their newspaper, web site or social media feed. Headlines also matter because studies show that they frame the way people read and remember a story. So if a headline omits key information or context, it ultimately misinforms readers. (For a fuller treatment on this, see Why Headlines Matter).

    A lot of social media outrage was directed at BBC News and Israeli officials said they will lodge a formal complaint. This headline was subsequently changed.

    The Sydney Morning Herald and its sister paper, The Age, republished a New York Times dispatch. The Times’ original headline was perfectly reasonable but headline writers for Fairfax Media, the parent company of both Australian papers, clearly missed the plot.

    New York Times Shills for “Largely Peaceful” Gazan Rioters and Arsonists
    A shill is the surreptitious partner of a huckster salesman, revving up an audience to believe a sales pitch and buy a product.

    Looking back at months of rioting and arson along the Gaza border with Israel, and the distorted rendition of reality by the New York Times of those events it’s undeniable the publication has promoted Hamas propaganda, relaying to its millions of readers what the terrorist group wanted them to believe and omitting what Hamas preferred concealed. The product sold? Israel as aggressor, Palestinians as victims.

    As of this writing, there’s been, for instance, no human interest story devoted to what Israelis are suffering as they witness thousands of acres of farms and nature preserves, and extensive wildlife, destroyed in nearly continuous fires set by flaming kites and airborne fire bombs from Gaza.

    When Times Bureau Chief David Halbfinger covered the arson story on July 10, he termed the Hamas campaign “ingenious” and the impact for Israel “exasperating.” (In fact, for Israelis the impact of the destruction can be frightening and devastating.) But the focus was overwhelmingly on criticism of Israel’s countermeasures against Gaza.

    As throughout the coverage, the tilt was the same; Hamas violence was discounted and Israel’s defensive action to stop the aggression was heavily faulted.
    David Singer: Trump and Israel Dabble in Hamas and PLO Quicksand
    Hamas is not going to suddenly disappear or allow free and fair elections in Gaza to determine who shall govern Gaza’s population. Any reconciliation by Hamas with the PLO seems most unlikely to occur.

    Israel appears to be going along with this Gaza trial balloon being floated by Trump.

    Realistically however – ceasefire negotiations between Israel and Hamas will be fatuous unless the following provision in the 1988 Hamas Covenant is shredded:

    “The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up. … "

    Trump needs to persuade previously-supportive but now wavering Arab states to back his peace plan being released without delay.

    For Trump to contemplate being dragged into the Hamas and PLO quicksand that has claimed so many sincerely-intentioned do-gooders preceding him is incomprehensible.
    Hamas-Israel Truce Deal Hinges on Palestinians Accepting Conditions They Reject
    Former Israeli defense officials have expressed skepticism that a long-term truce between Hamas and Israel is feasible.

    Col. (res.) Dr. Shaul Shay, former deputy head of Israel's National Security Council, noted that a long-term arrangement for Gaza would be possible only if two components are put into place. The first is a reconciliation agreement between Fatah and Hamas, and the second "is a period of calm between Hamas and the State of Israel."

    "In order to obtain a long-term period of calm, there needs to be major investment in the Gazan economy and infrastructure. That means bringing the Palestinian Authority (PA) to Gaza. Because this is a condition, it is very problematic....There have been countless attempts, led by Egypt, to reach Palestinian national reconciliation." None of them have succeeded. "Abbas is dragging his feet because he has no interest in promoting this procedure, which would give Hamas gains, but not the PA."

    Dr. Col. (res.) Moshe Elad, one of the designers of the security coordination between the IDF and the PA, said any attempt to reach a full agreement was very likely to end in failure. Israel will want "full quiet" as part of a large package deal. But "Hamas has never agreed to full quiet. I don't remember it ever agreeing to this."

    At best, if Hamas finds its back to the wall, it might agree to freeze the activities of its military wing, said Elad. "But they will never disband the military wing" as the PA has demanded. Doing so would symbolize "cancelling the resistance" from Hamas' perspective, which would be unthinkable for them.
    Leading US Jewish Groups: Kushner’s Push to Reform UNRWA ‘Long Overdue’
    US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and top adviser Jared Kushner’s push to reform the UN Palestinian refugee agency (UNRWA) is a welcome development, a number of officials with leading American Jewish groups told The Algemeiner this week.

    Kushner’s efforts were first reported in Foreign Policy magazine, which said that in a series of internal emails, the adviser stated, “It is important to have an honest and sincere effort to disrupt UNRWA. … This [agency] perpetuates a status quo, is corrupt, inefficient and doesn’t help peace.”

    Furthermore, Kushner reportedly asked Jordan during a June visit to the Hashemite kingdom to remove two million of its Palestinian citizens from the refugee rolls, effectively making UNRWA’s activities in the country irrelevant.

    UNRWA was originally set up to serve refugees displaced in Israel’s 1948 War of Independence. At first designed to be a temporary body, it is now seven decades old and is embedded deeply in Palestinian society, serving, for example, as the single largest employer in the Gaza Strip. Critics accuse it of perpetuating the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by counting descendants of the 1948 refugees as refugees themselves, as well as engaging in anti-Israel activities and cooperating with terrorist organizations.
    PA leader Abbas talks US peace plan with Jordan's Abdullah
    Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas met with Jordan's King Abdullah in Amman on Wednesday to discuss the regional situation ahead of the expected unveiling of the U.S. administration's Middle East peace plan.

    After their meeting, Abbas said both leaders agreed to reject the plan, which U.S. President Donald Trump has described as the "deal of the century."

    Abbas declared that he would not cooperate with Trump's peace mediation efforts after the U.S. last December officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and then moved its embassy to the city. The Palestinians envision parts of Jerusalem as the future capital of a Palestinian state.

    Abbas has argued that these moves prove Trump's pro-Israel bias and preclude him from being an objective mediator in the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

    A White House official told reporters last month that Trump's envoys were working on the most detailed set of proposals to date for the long-awaited peace proposal, which would include what the administration is calling a robust economic plan, though so far there is no release date.

    The Palestinian president is expected to visit Qatar in the next few days.
    JPost Editorial: Moscow on the Golan
    Russia has deployed Military Police to eight observation points on the Golan. For the first time, Israeli and Russian forces are directly across from each other at a border. This has the makings of a new strategic alignment in Syria, potentially reducing Iran’s presence and bringing stability, or the opposite – increasing tensions with Moscow and its rising power in the region.

    Over the last five years as Russia deepened its involvement in support of its ally in Damascus, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has navigated a complex conflict through high-level bilateral discussions in Moscow. This involves a relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin that is based on many visits and discussions – and respect between the two countries and their interests.

    Although Israel and Russia do not always see eye to eye on Syria, and although Russia has tensions with Jerusalem’s closest ally in Washington, a beneficial relationship has nevertheless been created.

    During the conflict, this was built on de-confliction and understandings about southern Syria. Potential conflict was reduced and Moscow emphasized that it understood Israel’s concerns about Iran. But Iran is an ally of Bashar Assad and therefore a partner of Moscow in the Syrian war. It is also part of the Astana talks that have sought to advance some kind of an agreement in Syria between Russia, Turkey and Iran.
    Despite past criticism, Israel mum on new UN human rights chief
    Jerusalem on Thursday remained silent on the appointment of former Chilean president Michelle Bachelet as the new United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, despite her past statements critical of Israel.

    Responding to news of Bachelet’s nomination, Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon merely took a parting shot at the UN’s outgoing human rights chief, Prince Zeid Raad al-Hussein of Jordan, but did not comment on his appointed successor.

    “We welcome the news that the current commissioner of the Human Rights Council’s tenure is at an end,” Danon said.

    Zeid “never missed a chance to invent falsehoods and lies when it comes to Israel,” the Israeli envoy went on. “From many of his statements, you would be forgiven for thinking he considered Hamas a welfare, not a terrorist, organization. During his tenure, the [UN Human Rights Council] became a theater of the absurd, with hypocrisy and double standards rampant among its proceedings and reports.”

    Danon’s spokesperson did not reply to a Times of Israel query about Bachelet’s appointment.
    New Colombia Government to Review Decision to Recognize Palestinian State
    Colombia’s new government said it would review former President Juan Manuel Santos’ recognition of Palestine after the previously unreleased decision was made public on Wednesday.

    President Ivan Duque took office on Tuesday and was informed a few days ago of Santos’ decision, which was detailed in an Aug. 3 letter to the Palestinian representative in Colombia, the Foreign Ministry said.

    “Given possible omissions that could come to light about the way in which this decision was taken by the outgoing president, the government will cautiously examine its implications and will act according to international law,” new Foreign Minister Carlos Holmes said in a statement.

    Santos decided to recognize Palestine as a “free, independent and sovereign state,” according to the letter, which was circulated to reporters by the Foreign Ministry.

    “Just as the Palestinian people have a right to constitute an independent state, Israel has a right to live in peace alongside its neighbors,” the letter said.

    The Israeli Embassy in Bogota said it was surprised and disappointed.
    Houthi Missile Launched Into Saudi Arabia Kills One
    Fragments from a missile launched into Saudi Arabia from Yemen by Houthi forces killed one civilian and wounded 11, Saudi state media said on Thursday.

    The Houthis, an Iran-allied group that controls much of Yemen including the capital Sanaa, said it fired a missile at the Jizan Industrial City in southern Saudi Arabia, according to the Houthi-run al-Masirah TV.

    The kingdom’s air defense forces intercepted the missile, Saudi state news channel al-Ekhbariya said late on Wednesday. State news agency SPA later said one Yemeni resident in Jizan was killed.

    “The interception resulted in projection of fragments throughout some residential areas, which caused the martyrdom of a Yemeni resident, and injuries among 11 civilians,” the Saudi-led coalition battling the Houthis in Yemen’s civil war said in a statement reported by SPA on Thursday.

    The Houthis have fired dozens of missiles into the kingdom in recent months, part of a three-year-old conflict widely seen as a proxy battle between regional rivals Saudi Arabia and Iran. Most have been intercepted by the Saudi military.
    Human Rights Voices - Saudi Arabia Crucifies Man Just After Country Criticized Canada's Human Rights Record
    Saudi Arabia has executed and crucified a man in the holy city of Mecca amid an escalating human rights fracas between Riyadh and Canada.

    Bloomberg reported that Elias Abulkalaam Jamaleddeen, who was from Myanmar, was accused of breaking into a woman's home, firing a weapon and then stabbing her to death.

    Citing the official Saudi Press Agency, Bloomberg said the ruling was endorsed by the king and sanctioned by the country's Supreme Court.

    Crucifixions entail beheading and hanging a body in public after an execution but are relatively rare in the kingdom, although it does liberally enact the death penalty. The kingdom executed more than 2,000 people between 1985 and 2016, according to Amnesty International.

    The execution and crucifixion came as a diplomatic spat between Saudi Arabia and Canada grew more bitter after Ottawa criticized the arrests of Saudi activists.

    The kingdom took exception to criticism by the Canadian Foreign Ministry over the July arrests of women's rights activists Samar Badawi and Nassima al-Sadah, among others.

              Korsel Khawatirkan Tiongkok dan Iran di Basket Asian Games      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Timnas basket putra Korea Selatan (Korsel) cukup dijagokan untuk merebut emas di Asian Games 2018. Namun, Tiongkok dan Iran bisa menjegal langkah mereka.

    Bicara medali emas Asian Games 2018, sudah empat kali Korsel merebutnya. Sukses itu didapat pada Asian Games 1970, 1982, 2002, dan 2014 saat mereka jadi tuan rumah. Di kancah Asia, mereka juga jadi salah satu tim yang disegani.

    Dalam enam edisi terakhir Kejuaraan FIBA Asia, mereka empat kali mengamankan posisi ketiga. Meski begitu, bukan berarti Korsel merasa jemawa soal persaingan di Asian Games 2018. Ada beberapa tim yang bisa menggagalkan ambisi Korsel untuk mempertahankan medali emas.

    "Kami percaya Tiongkok dan Iran akan benar-benar kuat. Kami harus memfokuskan pertahanan. Saya selalu menekankan pentingnya pertahanan dan menjaga konsentrasi. Kami adalah tim yang lebih lemah ketimbang Tiongkok dan Iran," kata Hur Jae, pelatih basket putra Korsel, dilansir Yonhap News.

    Kebetulan, Iran pula yang jadi lawan Korsel pada laga final Asian Games 2018. Meski merebut medali emas, Korsel mendapatkan perlawanan sengit. Status juara baru bisa diamankan dengan keunggulan 79-77 atas Iran.

     

    Bawa Skuat Terbaik

    Kali ini, Korsel akan memulai perjuangannya dari Grup A yang dihuni tuan rumah Indonesia, Mongolia, dan Thailand. Untuk tingkat ini, tak akan sulit bagi Korsel merebut status penguasa Grup A karena tak ada tim yang mampu menandingi kehebatan mereka.

    Di sisi lain, skuat Korsel sendiri terbilang unik. Hur Jae membawa kedua putranya untuk masuk dalam daftar pemain. Mereka adalah Heo Ung dan Heo Hoon. Namun, ia tetap membawa dua pemain veteran sebagai senjata andalan, yakni Kim Sun-hyung dan Lee Jung-hyun.

    Di liga saat pemain asing mendominasi, Jung-hyun mampu menempati urutan ketiga dalam daftar pencetak poin terbanyak. Statistiknya 13,9 poin per laga. Sedangkan Sun-hyung, meski sempat diganggu cedera, ia berada di belakang Jung-hyun dalam daftar pemain lokal dengan poin terbanyak.

    "Setiap orang harus berjuang, tapi Kim Sun-hyung dan Lee Jung-hyun harus jadi pemimpin," jelas Hur Jae. Korsel sendiri akan memulai petualangannya dengan melawan Indonesia pada 14 Agustus. Dua hari kemudian, mereka melawan Mongolia dan Thailand pada 22 Agustus.

    Pembagian Grup Basket Putra

              In peace between Ethiopia and Eritrea, UAE lends a helping hand      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

    In peace between Ethiopia and Eritrea, UAE lends a helping hand

    By Maggie Fick, Alexander Cornwell | Reuters

    But the rapprochement was, in fact, the culmination of a year of back-channel talks, sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters.

    One of the drivers behind that process was the United States, which has been a major player in the Horn of Africa for decades.

    More surprising was the role played by a much smaller nation: the United Arab Emirates.

    The oil-rich Gulf state has gained increasing influence in the region in recent years, according to UAE and Ethiopian officials and diplomats.

    Driven in part by a desire to tap Ethiopia’s growing economy and in part by a fear that rivals such as Iran and Qatar could gain a foothold in the Horn of Africa, the UAE has pushed into the region for more than a decade.

    Its newfound assertiveness underscores the shifts underway in the continent, where China now challenges the historic power of western nations and where Russia, Brazil and the UAE and its Gulf States are growing in prominence.

    Publicly, the UAE downplays its influence. Minister of State for International Cooperation, Reem al-Hashimy, told an event in Washington last month that her country had “played a humble role in trying to bring these two countries together”.

    But two diplomats in the Gulf told Reuters that the UAE has privately taken credit for the peace agreement.

    The Ethiopian prime minister’s chief of staff, Fitsum Arega, acknowledged meetings with UAE officials, but said the leaders of Ethiopia and Eritrea were responsible for ending the war.

    Eritrea’s information minister, Yemane Ghebremeskel, was not available for interview when Reuters visited the country’s capital, Asmara, last month.

    OPPORTUNITY

    The UAE has enjoyed virtually unchallenged influence in Eritrea for at least a decade.

    Eritrea is the most diplomatically isolated state in Africa. The United Nations imposed sanctions including an arms embargo in 2009, accusing the government of supporting Islamist militants in neighboring Somalia - a charge it denies.

    But Abu Dhabi has a military base there which it uses to help prosecute the war in Yemen, located just across the Red Sea.

    Earlier this year, Hashimy, the UAE minister, met with Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s predecessor, Hailemariam Desalegn, in Ethiopia.

    When Abiy took office in April, Abu Dhabi ramped up that effort. The timing was fortuitious: the UAE’s relationship with Somalia, another nation in the Horn of Africa, was falling apart and Abu Dhabi was looking for a new partner.

    “After years of investing in Somali security forces, the UAE saw its gains swept away by what it perceived to be an axis of Qatari and Turkish influence,” said Elizabeth Dickinson of the International Crisis Group.

    A month after taking office, Abiy visited the UAE capital Abu Dhabi to meet Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan. The new Ethiopian leader offered to mediate between Abu Dhabi and Somalia, two diplomats in the Gulf said.

    Officials from the UAE affiliate of the Red Crescent society, Emirates Red Crescent, later visited Ethiopia to discuss aid projects with Abiy.

    Those visits complemented efforts by Washington to move toward a restoration of relations between Ethiopia and Eritrea.

    The United States has been conducting shuttle diplomacy for more than a year, according to regional diplomats. In 2017, Eritrean officials visited Washington twice and again once this year, leaving messages that the Americans passed to Ethiopian officials.

    In late April this year, Donald Yamamoto, then the top U.S. official on Africa, met Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki in Asmara – the first visit by a U.S. official of that rank in more than a decade – before meeting Abiy in the Ethiopian capital.

    With the promise of financial support from the Gulf and with Washington’s backing, Abiy made his move.

    “Neither Ethiopia nor Eritrea benefit from a stalemate,” he said on June 6, a day after his ruling coalition, the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF), announced it would implement a peace deal with Eritrea dating back to 2000.

    “We need to expend all our efforts towards peace and reconciliation and extricate ourselves from petty conflicts and divisions and focus on eliminating poverty.”

    Nine days later, Sheikh Mohammed visited Addis Ababa with officials including Sultan Ahmed al-Jaber, the head of the state-owned oil company.


    The prince announced a $3 billion support package, made up of a $1 billion deposit in Ethiopia’s central bank and a pledge of $2 billion in investments.

    Ethiopian officials said the deposit, plus an offer from Saudi Arabia of a year’s supply of fuel with payment delayed for 12 months, helped ease a foreign exchange crisis that had caused shortages of medicine and a slowdown in manufacturing.

    “[The UAE’s] good relationship with both parties helped with re-establishing the relationship between Ethiopia and Eritrea and we see that as a positive thing,” Saad Ali Shire, Foreign Minister in the semi-autonomous state of Somaliland told Reuters.

    DECISION

    It’s been a long time coming.

    Ethiopia and Eritrea are linked by blood and history. An Eritrean secessionist movement helped overthrow a military regime in Addis Ababa in 1991 and the new Ethiopian government then gave Eritrea its independence.

    For a few years the two countries co-existed peacefully. Landlocked Ethiopia depended on Eritrea’s main port, which sits on one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes.

    But in 1998, the two went to war after a border dispute. Two years of brutal fighting left at least 80,000 dead. A shaky ceasefire followed.

    Things finally began to change after the death of Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi in 2012. Members of his ruling coalition began quietly discussing how to approach Isaias Afwerki in Eritrea.

    “It became clear to us that normalization was not only beneficial to Ethiopia but for the entire region,” said Hailemariam, who succeeded Meles before resigning in February.

    Ethiopia’s ruling coalition agreed in principle during Hailemariam’s tenure to accept the peace deal and withdraw Ethiopian troops from a border town awarded to Eritrea in 2002, he said. His story was confirmed by other senior politicians and diplomats in Ethiopia.

    But it was the appointment of Abiy that really encouraged Eritrea, Ethiopian officials, politicians and diplomats in the region say.

    Preaching forgiveness and an end to the Ethiopian state’s preoccupation with security, Abiy cuts a very different figure from his two predecessors.

    “The PM made it clear he will work to ensure lasting peace and ... he proved himself through real gestures like releasing political prisoners,” said his chief of staff Arega.

    Abiy was able to act because his party had seen off the Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front, long the dominant force within the ruling coalition and traditionally opposed to Eritrea.

    When Isaias, the Eritrean leader, accepted the olive branch, he praised Abiy and welcomed the TPLF’s weakening grip on power.

    When Abiy and Isaias embraced last month, some in Africa likened the moment to the fall of the Berlin Wall.

    A few weeks later the two leaders traveled to Abu Dhabi. A photo from that meeting shows the two men holding hands with the crown prince as he led them up a palace staircase.
