          SC wants to get back Rs600 billion stashed abroad by Pakistanis       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Tuesday made known its desire to bring back at least Rs600 billion of a perceived Rs1 trillion stashed in foreign lands by Pakistani nationals.

Many Pakistanis maintained accounts and owned properties in foreign lands, including the United Arab Emirates and Switzerland, deplored Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar during a suo motu hearing pertaining to illegal transfer of money from Pakistan to foreign countries.

The case was initiated when it came to the notice of the court that a large number of Pakistani citizens are maintaining accounts in foreign countries without disclosing to the authorities or paying taxes on them under the law.

Seeks details of Musharraf, Zardari’s properties

A lot of amount of money had been transferred away but the top bureaucracy of the country always came out with excuses whenever they appeared before the court, the chief justice regretted.

The court also hinted at issuing notices out of the list prepared by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to learn reasons why such people did not take advantage of the amnesty scheme launched by the previous government for voluntary disclosure of foreign assets owned by Pakistani citizens.

The scheme was launched to provide an opportunity to declare or transfer foreign assets to Pakistan in lieu of payment of taxes.

On March 26, former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi had announced the scheme after which the federal government promulgated the Foreign Assets (Declaration and Repatriation) Ordinance, 2018.

The significant feature of the ordinance is the promised immunity from taxation and penal action in respect of undeclared foreign assets subject to payment of taxes, etc.

Earlier, a 12-member committee of experts, headed by State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) Governor Tariq Bajwa, had informed the Supreme Court through its report that a staggering amount of $15.25bn was transferred abroad by individual account holders in Pakistan during 2016-17 through normal banking channels. Likewise, a substantial amount of transfers also took place from Pakistan under unauthorised and undocumented hundi and hawala mechanism.

The committee had feared that both types of outflows — regular channel and hundi or hawala — had a huge impact on the stability of the country’s foreign exchange reserves and adversely affected the exchange rate of the Pakistani rupee.

As a result, the national economy become vulnerable to pressure due to foreign currency obligations of the state, the report had explained, adding that this trend could also cause Pakistan to suffer undue and disruptive inflation and could drain the exchequer of substantial amounts of tax on account of escaped income and wealth.

The SBP governor, however, sought time from the court so that the central bank could formulate a strategy to deal with the matter.

On Tuesday, the same bench directed former presidents retired Gen Pervez Musharraf and Asif Ali Zardari as well as former attorney general Malik Qayyum to submit affidavits showing details of their properties.

The court is seized with a petition of Advocate Feroz Shah Gilani, president of the Lawyers Foundation for Justice, in which he had named Pervez Musharraf, Malik Qayyum, Asif Ali Zardari and the National Accounta­bility Bureau as respondents.

The chief justice observed that accountability should begin with people in powerful positions and directed senior counsel Farooq H. Naek to submit affidavits containing details of Asif Zardari’s assets.

Mr Naek, however, argued that both Asif Zardari and Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari had recently submitted their asset details with the Election Commission of Pakistan in their nomination papers.

In his petition, Mr Gilani had requested the court to order recovery of huge amounts of public money misappropriated and wasted by the respondents through unlawful means already on record in different judgements of the Supreme Court and high courts.

          University of Michigan Exhibition Challenges Traditional Understanding Of African Arts, Cultures      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

More than ever in the age of globalization, ideas fluidly cross geographic, generational, and cultural boundaries.

"Beyond Borders: Global Africa," an exhibition that will open at the University of Michigan Museum of Art this month, seizes this moment by repositioning Africa and its artists at the center of complex cross-cultural exchange for centuries.

Bringing together paintings, photographs, sculpture and installations created in Africa, Europe and the United States from the 19th to the 21st centuries, the exhibition features approximately 40 works of art drawn from UMMA's African art collection and from private and public holdings around the world, including the eminent Contemporary African Art Collection assembled by Jean Pigozzi of Geneva, Switzerland.

The exhibition explores issues such as slavery, colonization, migration, racism and identity through works by Kudzanai Chiurai, Omar Victor Diop, Seydou Keïta, Houston Maludi, Nandipha Mntambo, Fabrice Monteiro, Wangechi Mutu, Sam Nhlengethwa, Serge Alain Nitegeka, Alison Saar, Chéri Samba, Kehinde Wiley, and a host of unrecorded artists.

"Beyond Borders presents UMMA's distinguished collection of historical and contemporary African art, along with outstanding international loans, to ask questions about what it means to be an 'African' artist and make 'African' art," said UMMA Director Christina Olsen.

Works on view include a video of the South African artist Nandipha Mntambo as a combined bullfighter and bull; Senegalese artist Omar Victor Diop's photograph re-enacting the 18th-century portrait of abolitionist Jean-Baptiste Belley by French artist Anne-Louis Girodet; Kehinde Wiley's "On Top of the World" (2008), a large-scale portrait by the renowned African-American artist that conflates Nigerian independence and the Black Power movement in the U.S.; and a Nkisi power figure by a Vili artist from the late 19th century.

"Beyond Borders: Global Africa" will be on view at the U-M Museum of Art from Aug. 11 to Nov. 25, 2018, and is curated by Laura De Becker, UMMA's Helmut and Candis Stern Associate Curator of African Art.

"The works in the exhibition demonstrate how conceptual and geographic borders continue to inform-and limit-the way we collect, research and display the arts of Africa," De Becker said.

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated book published by UMMA, with an essay by De Becker, and a range of related public programs.


          A Bounty of Zucchini      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
From all my garden writing and various other comments, you might conclude that we grow a lot of zucchini. That would be correct! And yet, somehow, I don't have many varietal reports for zucchini. This should help fix that!

The troubles I refer to below to which zucchini are subject, are squash bugs, cucumber beetles, and powdery mildew. Other people complain of vine-borers but thus far *spits, knocks wood* we have been spared that pest. Pretty much all squash, cucumbers and some melons are prone to these ailments in a greater or lesser degree, and they must be regarded philosophically. 


Golden Zucchini:

In the photo above; do I even have to say which one? Oh, all right - on the left. 

We've grown this every year since almost the beginning, in spite of some frustrations with it. The colour is lovely, and our mothers can be relied on to pounce on them whenever one turns up in the offerings. That's not quite as often as we would like, because this is not the most productive variety, and the fruits tend to run a little on the smaller side.  But golden! And a very pleasant flavour. The other problem is that some plants produce reasonably steadily and others just sit there doing nothing much; we generally plant 2 and between them can expect to get some golden zucchini. They are otherwise no more or less trouble-prone than other varieties, and in keeping with their smaller size as fruits the bushes are fairly compact as well. Should be about 55 days to maturity. In spite of this apparently late date I think our second zucchini of the summer was a Golden one, so not that far off the others.

I'm not aware of another readily available open-pollinated golden variety of zucchini, and even hybrid versions seem a bit sparse. I'd give one a try, given the limitations of this one, but the lack of choices suggest that if you want a yellow zucchini, this is in fact as good as it gets.

It was introduced in 1973 by Burpee, "from material supplied by Dr. Oved Shifress". Burpee used to be a fine old American company producing better things than anthracnose infected beans (grrr, I am pretty sure that's where I picked up my nasty case of bean plague). Some people claim it as an heirloom variety, although that seems to be pushing the meaning of heirloom a bit far to me.

I can't find much information about Dr. Shifress, beyond his association with Burpee and Rutgers University, but that he emigrated to Israel in the 1940s. That suggests Burpee spent up to 30 years working on this variety; a considerable investment of time. It may also explain why no-one has come up with a better version yet.

Black Beauty Zucchini:

Also in the photo above, on the right. It is also prosaically known as "Dark Green" which is a more technically accurate description of the colour, but lacking in that marketing oomph.

This is probably the most widely-available standard open-pollinated zucchini in North America, and has been available as seeds to gardeners since the 1930s, although it finally seems to be being supplanted by newer varieties. This site say introduced by the Jerome B. Rice Seed Co. in 1931, and that it won the All American Selection in 1957. I'm comfortable calling this one an heirloom variety, although given its long history I suspect it has been improved over the years. It is so widely popular because it is quite early to start producing - 50 days to maturity - very productive, and resilient in the garden. The flavour is good - what we expect zucchini to taste like, in fact, given its ubiquity - but there are better tasting varieties out there. (Cocozelle and its selection Costata Romanesco come to mind at once.) Still, we grow it most years and are happy to eat it. Best a little on the smaller side.



Mutabile Zucchini:

This is a new one to us this year; we got the seeds from Hawthorn Farm.  It is the top zucchini in the above photo.

As you can see, this is very much in the style of Black Beauty. It is still an open pollinated variety, although it seems to be of fairly recent origin. I can trace its voyage to Hawthorn Farm back through Adaptive Seeds and Turtle Tree Seed in the U.S. to Sativa-Reinau in Switzerland. It is not clear to me whether they were the breeders of this variety or not; very possibly.

The main advantage of this over Black Beauty is the open structure of the plant which apparently contributes to it being resistant to mildew. Since we have not yet hit mildew season here, I cannot comment. The above mentioned seed companies all seem to be very impressed though. Like Black Beauty, it should start producing in about 50 days. It is on the larger side of average for a zucchini bush. The stems do feel faintly fuzzy rather than prickly, but I'm not sure how that really affects things. I guess if you are a market gardener picking zucchini for hours it makes life more pleasant, but I worry that it makes them less resistant to bugs. Since we haven't had any significant squash pests in the last few years I have no data. So far, they are a good, productive standard zucchini. I'm not even growing Black Beauty this year - we were out of seeds and bought these instead - so I cannot do a direct comparison. My impression is that they are at least as productive and probably more so. We are likely to continue to replace Black Beauty with this variety.

Dunja F1 Hybrid Zucchini:

We got this one from William Dam, and this is the second year we have grown it. It is the bottom zucchini in the above photo.

Mr. Ferdzy had a grump last year about vegetable seeds, and decided he wanted to try a bunch of hybrids. This was one of them. As usual with hybrids, I am just not that impressed. I mean, it's fine. It's a nice compact plant and really quite productive. The zucchini are pretty much indistinguishable from Black Beauty for looks and flavour. It's supposed to have intermediate resistance to powdery mildew, papaya ringspot virus, watermelon mosaic virus, and zucchini yellow mosaic virus. Since we have had none of those diseases in the 2 years we've grown it, I cannot comment except for the powdery mildew. Again, Dunja comes with an open plant habit and lack of spines. My impression last year was that powdery mildew hit hard overnight towards the end of August bringing the production of zucchini by any and all plants to a complete halt simultaneously, including Dunja. So, no on that one. I was quite annoyed as I expect to get zucchini into September. It was, I guess, a bad year for mildew since it was so cool and damp overall. But I can't say that I think slightly improved production on a compact plant justifies the kind of price that gets charged for hybrid seed. 

We'll plant what we have left of this (maybe nothing because there sure weren't a lot of seeds in the packet) and go back to open pollinated varieties. William Dam says 43 days to maturity, which is certainly very early. I think it was the first to produce this year, but I wouldn't say by a week; only a couple of days so that sounds a bit optimistic too. On the other hand a study from Cornell found that Dunja is quite good at setting squash without being pollinated by insects, so if you are struggling with a lack of pollinators you may wish to try this one. Again, this is obviously a newer variety and as far as I can find it comes from a Dutch company called Vitalis



Cocozelle / Costata Romanesca:

I was a bit amazed to realize I don't seem to have ever reviewed this variety. All three zucchini in the above photo are Costata Romanesca. 

Costata Romanesca seems to be a particular selection of an Italian type generally known as Cocozelle. I've grown zucchini labelled Cocozelle in the past, and my impression is that while the two were not completely identical, they were similar enough that either would do. The striped, slightly fluted fruit is quite distinctive. The flesh is a creamier yellow than most other zucchini I have had, and for flavour they leave all the others in the dust. The texture is also extremely superior and these are nicer raw than any other variety I have had.

So why doesn't everyone grow Cocozelle, Cocozelle, and nothing but Cocozelle? Well, as usual, there are trade-offs. First of all, this is not a compact plant. I'd still describe it as bush rather than a vine (like Tatume), but pretty much by the skin of its teeth. By the end of the season you can expect to be picking zucchini at least 6 feet from where the plant first emerged from the soil. It's also doesn't have an open habit, or lack of prickles, or whatever. Some people describe it as positively sticky. For all the space that it takes up, you don't get more squash than with the compact bush varieties; a bit less even. At 52 days to maturity, it's on the late side - although I will note that you are not waiting more than a week from the earliest varieties to start picking these, which isn't that long in the grand scheme of things. Besides the distinctive ribbing, they are likely to be a slightly ungainly shape compared to more modern varieties. 

But really, when all is said and done, this is a variety I recommend to just about everyone. Only a great deal of space pressure would induce me to give it up for another variety. We do plant other varieties, for different colours or earlier production, but I just wouldn't want to be without this one. It is the best.

 It is said to have decent powdery mildew resistance but as usual, not that I've ever noticed.

The Federal Roads Office announced Wednesday that new Audi A6 and A7 3.0-litre diesel cars have been refused authorisation to drive in Switzerland due to manipulation of their anti-pollution control systems. The vehicles in question are from Audi’s C7 generation complying with the Euro 6 standard. According to the Federal Roads Office, they have been equipped with illicit devices that tamper with the purification of exhaust fumes (link in German, French and Italian). The vehicles in question will only be registered in Switzerland as new vehicles once they comply with pollution requirements, the office said. The ban only concerns Audi vehicles imported starting next week, and therefore affects only 47 cars. Used cars are not affected.  Cars of these two models that have already been registered in the country may continue to drive on Swiss roads, but must brought up to standard and will be subject to recall campaigns.

He also was on the Dean Martin Roast of Ronald Reagan, and since Needham was friends with Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, they starred in the movie Cannonball Run, which we'll get to at the bottom of this post.

His run was witnessed by some famous people who knew about speed... Chuck Yeager, Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins, and William J. "Pete" Knight, who, to this day holds the all-time speed record for level flight, when he flew an X-15 at Mach 6.7.






Unfortunately, there is no accurate or verifiable way to know what speed it ran. But that's what you get with publicity stunts vs real hardcore attempts at landspeed records. There was no FIA, no SCTA, etc etc to get an accurate high speed, average speed, and they didn't turn around for a return run to get a both ways required run for the international record. But, they really didn't care about all the hoopla. They made money, got rich, caused a hell of a media splash.. and didn't have to hire Evel Knievel.

But there once was a time in America when crazy guys built these land speed rockets in their garages. Not warehouses, not military testing facilities, but in their garages. That's where Breedlove built his Spirit of America. https://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2010/03/lots-of-cool-photos-over-at-hamb-heres.html

Paul Newman climbing into the Budweiser Rocket at Bonneville, Newman was responsible for putting together the relationship for Budweiser to be the lead sponsor.

After 9 runs at Bonneville, the Budweiser Rocket kept digging into the unstable salt surface which presented a serious safety issue, and Chuck Yeager interceded and got them permission from the Air Force to run at Muroc, now part of Edwards AFB.


It wasn't Needham's 1st land speed vehicle though, the SMI Motivator was. You've probably never heard of that, because it never accomplished anything.

During 1976 Needham tested the Budweiser/SMI Motivator –sponsored vehicle in excess of 600 mph on a huge dry lake located in Oregon. So... credit him that, and give him 2 of those ballcaps that celebrate breaking the 300 mph barrier... or a 400 and a 200. I just don't thing they ever made a 600 mph hat, as only a couple people have ever, or will ever go faster on wheels.

The `SMI Motivator' was made available to two drivers:  Needham and the wife of his partner Duffy Hambleton. Kitty O'Neil was a 28-year-old Irish and Cherokee woman from Texas, who was to drive the 'Motivator' to a new women's record, while Hal went for the speed of sound.

Nothing but a publicity gambit.

Needham's sponsor had paid out more than $75,000 to get him the drive, but after a high-speed foray on Mud Lane at Tonopah in Nevada, he run out of lake and into the sage brush on the surrounding desert, vowing never to drive the car again. (I've never heard of a dry lake near Tonopah, and the internet turned up no info)

Lets face it, no one even tries, and if they wanted to, Bonneville probably can't support that if everything I've heard about the condition of the salt is correct.


In May 1977, his movie directorial debut was released... and Smokey and the Bandit which cost 12 million reaped tenfold that amount in less than 6 months. And that was the summer all movies had to compete with Star Wars for ticket sales, which had been released 2 days earlier than Smokey.

Burt Reynolds became the highest paid actor in cinema history up to that point, for this movie, making five million dollars for four weeks work.
Roger Moore never drove an Aston Martin in the Bond movies, but he drove a DB5 in Smokey.
The Ferrari 308 used in the movie belonged to Director Hal Needham.
Ron Rice, owner of Hawaiian Tropic, loaned his black Lamborghini to his buddies Burt Reynolds and Hal Needham.
The moustache worn by Burt Reynolds in this movie was subsequently auctioned for the charity, UNICEF. The auction was held in Geneva, Switzerland, and the winning bid was twenty-five thousand dollars from Freddie Mercury
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082136/trivia

And that's when Needham might be considered to have created redneck buddy movies. He directed, Burt Reynolds drove, and everyone was happy.  He created movies with fast cars, car stunts, bar fights, country music and devil-may-care men who’d do anything for a buddy, and for a good time.

Just in time for Dukes of Hazard to catch the wave and ride it to CBS in Jan 1979. It was based on a 1975 movie, Moonrunners, which was identical in every way to the tv show, just not as cute and funny.

The movie was narrated by Waylon Jennings who introduces and comments on the story of cousins, who run moonshine for their widower uncle Jesse who knows the Bible better than the local preacher. He makes liquor, according to his "granddaddy's granddaddy's" recipe, in stills named Molly and Beulah.  In the opening, one of the cousins is in the county jail for a bar fight at the Boar's Nest. So, you can see, it's a movie version of the tv show, with a couple character names changed. There's a Cooter, and a county boss bad guy who owns the Boar's Nest and the local brothel. He sells moonshine to yankees. To get at Jesse’s supply, Sheriff Rosco Coltrane harasses the cousins who use bow and arrows because they are on probabtion and can't own guns. There's the whole Dukes of Hazard County in a nutshell.

Anyway.... getting back to Hal Needham.

He was a paratrooper in the Army. No wonder he got a job in Hollywood as a stuntman

As the highest paid stuntman in the world, Hal Needham broke 56 bones, his back twice, punctured a lung and knocked out a few teeth. His career has included work on 4500 television episodes and 310 feature films as a stuntman, stunt coordinator, 2nd unit director and ultimately, director.

Needham wrecked hundreds of cars, fell from tall buildings, got blown up, was dragged by horses, rescued the cast and crew from a Russian invasion in Czechoslovakia, set a world record for a boat stunt on Gator (1976), jumped a rocket powered pick-up truck across a canal for a GM commercial and was the first human to test the car airbag.

He wrote Cannonball Run II, Stroker Ace, Smokey and the Bandit one and two
In addition, he directed Smokey and the Bandit one and two, Cannonball Run one and two, Hooper, Stroker Ace, and others that really aren't important or impressive.

Jackie Chan makes one of his first U.S. film appearance in Cannonball Run, and inspired by Hal Needham's notion of including bloopers during the closing credits, Chan began a tradition of doing the same in most of his movies.

The ambulance used in the movie, is the actual ambulance that Hal Needham and Brock Yates souped up and raced in the real Cannonball Run. It had been upgraded with a hemi, and topped out at 145 mph, and was equipped with 4 gas tanks, and 4 filler holes, so that the max ninety gallons could be pumped quickly from one gas station island. Needham and Yates didn't win the race (the transmission blew in Palm Springs, California) so Needham kept it in storage for several years, until the time came to make this film.






Stan Barret related the true story about how he was the stunt double for Burt Reynolds on the movie Hooper and  loaned Burt his Rolex to wear in the movie as Burt played the role of Hal, and they kept passing it back and forth as Stan wore it in the stunt scenes and Burt wore it in the regular scenes. The action movie Hooper was loosely based upon his and Hal Needham's careers as stuntmen.


He invented and introduced to the film industry, the air ram, air bag, the car cannon turnover, the nitrogen ratchet, the jerk-off ratchet, rocket power and The Shotmaker Camera Car to make stunts safer and yet more spectacular at the same time.  He also directed the 1980's hit BMX movie Rad.

Needham co-owned a NASCAR race team and was the first team owner to use telemetry technology.

In February 1981 Needham and Burt Reynolds debuted their Skoal Bandit Racing team at the Daytona 500. They intended to run 19 races with (previously featured at the beginning of this article) Stan Barrett at the wheel.  The Skoal-Bandit race team was one of the most popular NASCAR teams ever - second only to that of Richard Petty

After running the Bud Rocket and using real time telemetry, Needham decided to employ it on his stock car. With permission from Bill France, it was installed in the car for the Talladega race. Every other team in the pits had a fit because they were getting real time updates in the pits from the car on exactly what was going on. It was the only time France allowed it.

Journeyman driver Harry Gant was enlisted to assist crew chief Travis Carter in setting up the car for Barrett.  After Gant, driving for another team, finished second to Cale Yarborough at the Atlanta race, Needham approached Gant about driving a second car for the team.


Gant's first start for the team came a month later at Darlington and he finished second. Halfway through the year Barrett was gone and the team now competed fulltime on the NASCAR circuit. After five more runner-up finishes, Gant broke through and won his first race at Martinsville in April 1982.

After 17 years of racing, most of them in NASCAR's lesser divisions, Gant was a star and his fans that cheered him on the short tracks had a Winston Cup hero. Gant won eight more races and finished in the top-five in points four times before Needham bowed out of the sport after the 1988 season.

Gant credits Needham with being a major force in changing the face of stock car racing. "Hal was the first to dress the crew in matching embroidered uniforms. He had a big hauler with the car painted on it. He brought people from Hollywood to the races. He even had cheerleaders in the pits once."


In 2012, Needham received a Governor's Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The academy, which gives no Oscars for stunt work, cited Needham as "an innovator, mentor and master technician who elevated his craft to an art and made the impossible look easy."

          Blueprint News Celebrates 250 000 Visitors      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The registration of visitor statistics for "blueprint news" started in May 2010 and reported about 250.000 visitors in August 2018. Here are some numbers that remain incomplete, however, because only the leading 10 visitor nations are given, together with information about browsers and systems applied by visitors. Some rare browsers that came to my attention during the years are not included in the overall statistics as they present only a low number of visitors i.e. < 1%. Same goes with the computer systems where the list is too long to integrate it entirely into the following chart, and there are, as well, some visitors who withhold part of the Information. An increasing trend to data anonymization makes it even more difficult to collect visitor data.



Overall visitor statistics for August 8, 2018.


However, more important than mere numbers should be the following choice of highlights of visitor activity during all those years and which might give an idea of the global acceptance my rather tiny blog achieved.


Visitor Highlights



Chinese visitors coming from River Yangtse and from Hangzhou, both places being
near to Shanghai. A closer look on the satellite images provides interesting features.



The former Portuguese colony of Macao which is now a part of PR China. Two
long bridges, connecting the main parts of Macao, might attract your attention.



Living the Chinese Dream



Economic prosperity and military strength are integral parts of China's global dream. While
facing maritime disputes with other nations, China is enforcing a modernization of its navy.



Japan and North Korea



One visitor came from the diplomatic quarters of Tokyo (above) and which is near to
the Imperial Palace. Another visitor called from Ground Zero in Hiroshima where the
first atomic bomb had been dopped in 1945.



Earlier this year Japanese authorities launched a missile alert via Japan National TV
when a North Korean test missile was heading toward Japanese territory. As tensions
with North Korea were high at the time, I was just watching Japanese news on satellite
TV. I immediately took a photo from my TV screen and posted it. My blogspot was then
available on the internet while the North Korean missile was still in the air over Japan !



One of the rare visitors from North Korea is indicating he came from the Ryugyong
neighbourhood in Pyongyang and which is not far away from the central compound
of North Korea's ruling Workers Party. The internet access point, however, remains
difficult to localize in this case.



In August 2017 two US military bases on Guam were threatened by North Korea which said
it would create an "enveloping fire" around the US territory using four Hwasong-12 missiles
that should detonate 30-40 km off the island. The US side made clear this would mean war.



Nuclear Research

The CERN Institute in Geneva, Switzerland, is operating the greatest particle accelerator
ever built. It was there that a predicted elementary entity, the Higgs boson, was detected
for the first time.



The center for nuclear research in Dubna is situated in the neighbourhood of
Moscow, Russia. In Soviet times it was the most important facility of its kind.



Washington and Israel

No, it's not at all a call from the President but rather from a
public hotspot facing the White House in Washington DC :



In the hustle of the 2016 pre-election times I simply forgot to publish the below picture.
Sorry for that ! The picture can be named "Grabber King at the Chicago Trump Tower".



The US Department of State noticed my translation of a political poem originally written by
Guenter Grass, one German laureate of the Nobel Price for Literature. It's all about Israeli
militarism directed against Arab neighbours (i.e. their Semitic brethren...) and against Iran.



In the week after the author's death, my translation
of his poem was addressed by different US visitors :



US - Iranian Enmity



The National Defense University NDU in Washington DC, a US government institution,
visited a blogspot of mine and which is dealing with a scenario of mutual threats that
has steadily developed between Iran and the USA.

All

All of Central Asia and the Middle East
is under control of The Empire.
Well, not entirely ..........


An Iranian visitor enjoyed, as well, my visualization of the conflict.



One visitor coming from the faculty of law at Ain Shams University in Cairo, Egypt, made
a Google search by simply entering the timeless adage of justice to be found above the
entrance of a Cairo law court, and found ..... my blogspot about decisive battles in Syria.
What an amazing coincidence !



After the ousting of Libyan dictator Muammar al-Ghadafi, a visitor called from some
internet access point nearby to Martyrs Square in Tripoli, the former capital of Libya.
It is on Martyrs Square that a shrine was established for the heroes of the revolution.



A "postcard" from the holy places of Makkah in Saudi-Arabia :



In August 2014 Islamic fighters were threatening Kurdish residents in the
Kirkuk region of Northern Iraq. People fled into the nearby mountaineous
area while Islamists headed further to Mosul. After the fall of Mosul, the
Islamist leader al-Baghdadi declared his caliphate in the great mosque
of Mosul.



Visitors coming from Northern Pakistan took immediate interest in the Iraqi developments.
They came from Islamabad, its southern environment, from Quetta and Peshawar (below).



Mongolia - Chingis Khan and the "Art of War"



A smiling Mogolian leader once presented his Mongolian horsemen to US president Bush.
When a Mongol horde invaded and destroyed the Caliphate of Baghdad in 1258, they left
a gigantic regional chaos similar to what did the US Cavalry under US president Bush. The
difference, however, is: The Mongol horde robbed what they could carry on horseback and
returned home, while the US sat and waited as oil wells cannot be so easily carried away.



Other "cold warriors" can be found on Elmendorf Air Base in Alaska, USA, .....



..... while some people are peacefully fighting the cold in an Inuit community on Greenland :



The "University of the South Pacific" on the lonesome island of Fiji, however, is a real "hotspot".
No wonder they provide a swimming pool needed to cool off the heated brains of young folks.



In comparison, the "Harvard Business School" in Cambridge,
Massachusetts, might make a point with a better reputation.




          ISIS Claims Responsibility For Deadly Attack On Cyclists In Tajikistan      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Updated at 6:05 a.m. Two Americans are among four foreign cyclists killed over the weekend in the Central Asian country of Tajikistan when a car swerved to hit them and then assailants jumped out of the vehicle and stabbed the victims. The Tajik government accused a banned Islamist party of being behind the attack, and the Islamic State also claimed responsibility. The U.S. Embassy in Tajikistan confirmed the attack, which occurred in Danghara district, about 60 miles southeast of the capital, Dushanbe. The New York Times describes the area as "a picturesque mountain road that has been popular with Western bicyclists for its dramatic and remote scenery in a region close to the border with Afghanistan." The other two cyclists killed in the attack were from Switzerland and the Netherlands, officials said. None of the four were immediately identified. Three others in the same group survived the attack, including one with a knife wound, officials said. "According to multiple sources, on

          August shipments      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

That’s your mistake, then. Eve did not offer hassle free shipping. The exact wording was that they were offering “hustle free” shipping.

Here is a copy and paste from my Backer Kit receipt:

Hustle Free International Delivery. Import duties and customs handed by Eve (For Canada, Japan, Australia, Norway and Switzerland ONLY) - Canada

I don’t know about you, but I took this to mean that there would be no “hustle” to the manufacturing and delivery of my Eve V, and that it would get to its final destination when it darn well felt like it, thank you very much.

There was absolutely no undertaking here that any of this would be “hassle” free.

On the other hand, Eve co-founder Mike says they don’t make any promises, only estimates. So it’s hard to say if this was a promise of “hustle free” shipment or just an estimate.

Skiing's version - that's why they run the race. And it was the phrase of the day Friday at Yongpyong Alpine Centre. (CHEERING) GOLDMAN: As Switzerland's Wendy Holdener crossed the finish line in the second of two runs in the ladies' slalom, the crowd's roar meant a couple of things. Holdener fans were happy. She just won a silver medal. Gold went to Sweden's Frida Hansdotter. But there was also disbelief at the finish. U.S. alpine star Mikaela Shiffrin didn't win any medal. A Shiffrin gold in this race virtually was guaranteed. She's the world's best slalom skier and

White Fascists of Antifa attack black and Hispanic police who were protecting a black woman who was just eating her breakfast

Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens are outspoken leaders of the pro-Trump super PAC Turning Point USA. But on Monday morning, they were hungry diners who showed up at Philadelphia’s Green Eggs Cafe in Midtown before it opened and managed to nab a window seat.

The pair barely had time to peruse the menu before people – apparently demonstrators – started jeering at them from other tables, Malik Joe, the Green Eggs Cafe’s manager, told The Washington Post.

Outside their window, they could see a large group of protesters approaching the restaurant, flanked by police.

The protesters “were screaming at one guy sitting in the window and I looked and he was laughing...the protesters were screaming ‘white supremacist’ and something about immigrants.”

Mr Joe said the protesters also flung food and objects.

At some point, Ms Owens pulled out her phone. She tweeted the scene from inside and outside the restaurant, including the moment when one demonstrator dumped a cup of something onto Mr Kirk’s head.

“Charlie Kirk and I just got ATTACKED and protested by ANTIFA for eating breakfast,” Ms Owens wrote a short time later. “They are currently following us through Philly. ALL BLACK AND HISPANIC police force protecting us as they scream.”

Bozell: Socials Banning InfoWars 'Not Just a Slippery Slope, It's a Dangerous Cliff'

Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued the following statement Monday in response to Facebook, Apple and Spotify removing "The Alex Jones Show" and other InfoWars content. In April, MRC released an extensive report detailing censorship by social media companies.

MRC President Brent Bozell:

“I don’t support Alex Jones and what InfoWars produces. He’s not a conservative. However, banning him and his outlet is wrong. It’s not just a slippery slope, it’s a dangerous cliff that these social media companies are jumping off to satisfy CNN and other liberal outlets.

“This is part of a disturbing trend. In recent months top conservative congressmen have been shadowbanned on Twitter. Pro-life and pro-gun posts and videos are often removed on several platforms. Liberal journalists even objected to one conservative outlet attending a meeting with Facebook. Several conservative organizations like Live Action, the NRA and even the Christian satire site Babylon Bee have complained they had posts removed or censored.

“Social media sites are supposedly neutral platforms, but they are increasingly becoming opportunities for the left and major media to censor any content that they don’t like. The lack of transparency is also problematic and, as of this release, Facebook, Apple and Spotify have provided no detailed explanation for the ban.

“Conservatives are increasingly concerned that InfoWars is not the end point for those who want to ban speech. It’s just the beginning. We are rapidly approaching a point where censorship of opposing voices is the norm. That’s dangerous.”

How We’ve Robbed a Generation of Hobbies, Joy, and Creativity

Dennis Prager   

If you ask most young people today if they have any hobbies, you will receive one of four answers:

1. “No.”

2. “What do you mean?”

3. “Yeah. I play video games/watch TV/watch movies.”

4. “Yeah…” and then they may actually cite a hobby.

The fourth is the least common.

Dan Scotti, lifestyle writer at the website Elite Daily, and a millennial, wrote a perceptive piece on the matter titled, “Why Don’t Millennials Have Hobbies Anymore?”

“None of my friends have hobbies,” Scotti wrote. And he was honest enough to include himself in this assessment:

With a pair of iPhone speakers and a Netflix subscription, I rarely feel as though I’m missing out on anything. … It’s as if modern technology has fooled me into thinking my life is very fulfilling. I mean, I have social media accounts to uphold, television series to chain watch, and a whole bunch of dating profiles to swipe through—so, what time do I even have for hobbies?

He concludes:

The fact that hobbies may be a thing of the past is an eerie thought. I can’t honestly say that I see hobbies such as “carpentry” making a comeback at any time in the near future. … As sad as it may seem to older generations, we genuinely have an interest in Instagram, Twitter, and other products of the digital age.

Clearly, you don’t have to be a member of the “older generations” to think this sad.

Here’s why.

There is a world of difference between being active and being passive, between creating something and watching something, between doing something and being entertained.

I’m not picking on millennials. The problem is not new. In 1984, Neil Postman wrote a book whose title said it all: “Amusing Ourselves to Death.” It’s as relevant today as it was in 1984.

The question, then, is what, if anything, can we do about this?

Parents need to cultivate hobbies or, if you will, passions in their child. The only passion most middle-class and upper-class parents cultivate in their children is getting good grades so that they can get into a prestigious college.

But that is misguided. If the most important passion you cultivate in your child is getting good grades, what will your child’s most important passion be after leaving school—in other words, for the next 70 years of his or her life?

Schools are complicit. By adding more and more homework hours over the years (which has accomplished nothing; if online communications are indicative, most students leave high school today far less well-educated and proficient in basic skills than high school graduates of decades ago), they deprive children of time to develop a hobby.

After hours of homework, parents understandably want to allow their child time to unwind. And what more convenient way to unwind than by watching a screen—whether a smartphone screen, a computer screen, or a big screen?

How can parents cultivate interests, hobbies, and passions in their child?

Most importantly, they can limit time spent in front of a screen. And the earlier in life the better. Then the child has to figure out what to do with the time he or she would have spent in front of the screen.

If I may offer a personal example, when I was in eighth grade, I refused to do almost any homework. My mother was certain—no exaggeration—I’d end up in jail.

But while my parents could not force me to do homework, they could enforce a limit on my television watching: one hour a night. So, they asked, what would I do with the rest of my after-school hours?

Solely as a result of that dilemma, the idea arose that I learn to play a musical instrument (my older brother, who did all his homework, never took up a musical instrument).

Thanks to that decision, I learned to read music, fell in love with classical music, taught myself to read orchestral scores, and for the last 25 years, have periodically conducted orchestras (including twice in the last year at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles). All thanks to little TV and little homework in eighth grade.

Instead of doing homework or watching television, I also started reading—newspapers, serious magazines, and books—which has remained a lifelong passion.

I might add that among my peers who spent their non-leisure time studying for tests and doing homework, not many ended up loving reading. Why? Because they read solely for school and grades rather than for the love of learning.

Technology, excessive homework, and the demise of God, religion, and love of country—these have all left a generation bereft of passions beyond amusement and getting good grades.

Parents need to ask themselves if this troubles them. And if it does, decide to do something about it—by first asking themselves what they really want for their child.

Intolerance spreads as cultural censors shut down ‘dangerous’ debate

Comment from Australia:

Social media and reporting of it in mainstream news are producing intolerance not seen since anti-communist senator Joe McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee in the 1940s and 50s.

The free-thinking rebelliousness of the 60s grew out of a backlash against McCarthyist repres­sion of what was regarded as sedi­tious activities, literature, plays and movies inspired by com­munism to undermine American values.

Today it is the storm troopers of the student Left and musicians and actors who lead a daily barrage of threats against people whose free thought they can’t tolerate.

Usually these involve “look-at-me” verbal violence against US President Donald Trump for ­do­ing in office exactly what he promised to do before the 2016 presi­dential election.

Public outbursts of moral outrage by multi-millionaire stars such as Madonna or Robert De Niro show just how intolerant parts of the modern Left are.

While intimidation of Australia’s politicians falls far short of anti-Trump hysteria, there is among students, artists, journalists and political activists an increasing intolerance here, too.

In the past month activists have tried to prevent Canadian conservative Lauren Southern staging public events; a writers festival has sought to exclude Germaine Greer and Bob Carr because of their “unsafe” views; a prominent ABC host has written a column to defend the presence of the occasional conservatives on The Drum; and mainstream media personalities have tried to dismiss reporting of African crime gangs in Melbourne.

Southern, 23, a Canadian journalist, is described as alt-right by critics but sees herself as libertarian. She is accused of racism for saying what many people privately think about unauthorised mass migration, mainly by Muslims from Africa and Syria.

She was billed $68,000 by Victoria Police for security at a $750-a-head rally on July 20 in Somerton, 20km north of the Melbourne CBD. Last week police prevented Southern from walking on a public footpath past the Lakemba Mosque in Sydney’s western suburbs for fear her presence might provoke violence by Muslim worshippers.

Both incidents seem to reverse the onus of civic responsibility. Why were police not protecting Southern’s right to free assembly in Melbourne, or to walk freely about suburban Sydney? Why in Brisbane on July 29 did police warn she could be fined if any police were injured if she persisted with attempts to interview protesters outside her Brisbane Convention Centre rally?

Shutting down of other people’s opinions is counter-productive. Surely after the Brexit and Trump votes anti-racist protesters should realise worldwide concern about immigration cannot be sil­enced by intimidation. In democracies voters get their own back.

The withdrawal of invitations to Carr and Greer by the Brisbane Writers Festival is even more troubling for free thought. Southern is a provocateur, for sure, but Carr and Greer are intellectuals whose books should be discussed even by people who dislike their ideas, as I do.

Richard Flanagan, 2014 Man Booker Prize winning Tasmanian author of The Narrow Road to the Deep North, published a blistering response to the festival’s decision in Guardian Australia on July 29. “A writer, if they are doing their work properly, rubs against the grain of conventional thinking. Writers are often outcasts, heretics and marginalised. Once upon a time writers festivals celebrated them, and with them the values of intellectual freedom,” he argued.

Flanagan went on to criticise the same festival’s 2016 handling of US author Lionel Shriver after a fiery blog by former ABC personality Yassmin Abdel-Magied, who had heard only a third of Shriver’s presentation but accused her of laying the foundations “for genocide”.

“For Shriver the talk was about the damage identity politics could do to writing. For her critics it was about belittling the movement against cultural appropriation,” Flanagan wrote. Whatever your view, the debate was important, but Flanagan says “the BWF betrayed Shriver when she was at her most vulnerable”. As a fan of her writing, I agree.

“The Shriver controversy was the first time Australian writers festivals began to feel like a foreign country occupied by a strange regime, hostile to what writers stand for,” Flanagan wrote.

Carr is probably being dropped because of his sympathy with China and Greer because of comments suggesting not all rapes are equally serious and some should be considered “non-consensual … bad sex” as most “don’t involve any injury whatsoever”. Apparently the gentle “Volk” of Brisbane will not feel “safe” hearing such things.

Well here’s the rub. “Writers festivals, like … (literary) prizes have … become less … about books and more … about using their … power to enforce the new orthodoxies, to prosecute social and political agendas”, Flanagan wrote

Even the ABC is facing intolerance from the Left.

Julia Baird, part-time host of The Drum, used her column in The Sydney Morning Herald on July 28 to call out social media intimidation she was receiving for supposedly privileging panellists from the Institute of Public Affairs. Baird said the show had included only three IPA appearances this year, two by the same person.

Now the IPA, even though supported by big businesses and Australia’s richest woman, Gina Rinehart, is not the Ku Klux Klan. It was founded in 1943 by Charles Denton Kemp, father of Howard government ministers Rod and David Kemp. Although associated with free-market economic policies in recent decades, it was very much a Keynesian institution until the early 70s.

Wrote Baird: “The art of persuasion has been thoroughly trounced by polemic in public debate. Online, in comments sections, in staccato bursts of hate and attack, in the citing of feelings over facts, we see people shoving pillows over divergent views and trying to stop them being aired at all.”

She complained about the Twitter campaign to silence the IPA on The Drum. Just exactly what are Twitter’s twits afraid of? On subjects from migration to power prices, climate change and taxation reform, many on the uneducated Twitter Left would benefit from hearing well-argued conservative views. They might even learn why voters around the world disagree with most social media pieties.

The worst example of left-wing censoring of debate last month concerned opinion-makers from Waleed Aly to ABC journalists Jon Faine and Virginia Trioli trying to shut down discussion of Mel­bourne’s African gang violence. No amount of fudging the figures will change the fact this is a real issue and Africans are overrepresented in crime statistics, even if total numbers reflect the small African population.

Yet Aly said on Ten’s The Project on July 19: “If there really are a bunch of African gangs, frankly I am offended to not at least have been asked to join one.” His eight-minute segment was praised, of course, on social media.

Victims of gang crime who can’t afford the salubrious and safe suburbs inhabited by privileged members of the commentariat will just feel more isolated. No African migrants will be helped.

Extremist Persecution of Christians, 2018

The Slaughter of Christians in Egypt

Three masked gunmen targeted and killed Bassem Attallah, a Christian man, 27, after identifying him as a Christian by the cross tattoo on his wrist. According to his older brother, Osama, 38, the siblings and a Muslim colleague, Muhammad, were walking home after work when three armed men, aged between 23 and 25 stopped them. "We thought they were policemen because they weren't masked... They were wearing black jackets," Osama recalled. "They approached us and asked Bassem to show them the wrist of his right hand, and when they saw the tattoo of the cross, they asked him: 'Are you Christian?' Bassem answered 'Yes, I am Christian,' and repeated that again in a loud voice."

The men then asked Muhammad his name and to show them his wrist. They saw no cross and allowed him to leave. On learning Osama's name, which is popular among Muslims, and not seeing any cross tattoos on his wrist, they also allowed him to leave. "And then they shot Bassem in the head. I could not believe what happened to my brother. He fell on the ground in front of me and I was unable to do anything.... We lost a person dear to our hearts. My brother Bassem was a very good and kind man. He had a strong relationship with God. He was always reading in the Bible, praying and going to the church. He was loved by all people," said his grieving brother. The murder took place in Al-Arish, Sinai, which in recent years has been the scene of many attacks on Christians—including the murder of two priests and the mass upheaval of Christian villages.

Separately, on New Year's Day, which the Muslim calendar does not recognize or celebrate, two Christian brothers were gunned down in public by a masked man on a motorcycle. While they died en route to a hospital, the murderer escaped. At the time of the attack, they were near Christian friend's store, which sold liquor. Coptic-owned stores that sell liquor have been targeted by those who consider alcohol haram, or forbidden by Islam. Almost one year to the day, on January 3, 2017, a Muslim man sneaked up behind a Christian shop owner in Egypt and slit his throat for selling alcohol.

Finally, more details concerning the Islamist terror attack on a Coptic church on December 29, which left nine dead, continued to emerge. One mother sacrificed herself to save her two young daughters. Nermin Sadik, 32, was walking her two daughters, aged 11 and 7, to Sunday school, when one of the gunmen ran up to her. When she realized what was happening and that he was about to open fire, she flung her daughters away and received a bullet. When the terrorist turned on the two girls, their mother, "with her last breath held them between her arms to protect them from flying bullets," says the report. Although the girls survived the ordeal, in the end their mother's body had several bullets in it. Speaking after the tragedy, Nermin's widower said his wife, who was a nurse, "was affectionate for everyone and she liked to help without charge."

The Slaughter of Christians in Nigeria

Various attacks on Christians by Muslim Fulani herdsmen continued throughout the month of January. "At least 16 people have been killed by gunmen in southern Nigeria after a New Year's Day church service," says one report. "The group had attended a midnight service before they were ambushed in the early hours of Monday."

According to another report, in one week alone, 55 people were killed and 200 homes torched, in the Lau local government area of Taraba state.

In yet another instance, 80 Christians were slaughtered by the Muslim herdsmen, many hacked to death by machetes, in Logo and Guma County. Speaking from a hospital bed, one survivor, Peter, said the attackers who went after him "were people I had interfaced with in that community. I got up and called them by their names and tried to wrestle the machete they had out of their hands, but to no avail. I was overpowered and they began to cut me."

Discussing these ongoing raids, Rev. Musa Asake, the General Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria, said "Under President [Muhammad] Buhari, the murderous Fulani herdsmen enjoyed unprecedented protection and favoritism to the extent that the herdsmen treat Nigeria as a conquered territory. Rather than arrest and prosecute the Fulani herdsmen, security forces usually manned by Muslims from the North offer them protection as they unleash terror with impunity on the Nigerian people."

The Rape of Christians in Pakistan

"A Christian boy of only 7 years old was brutally sodomized by a Muslim rapist," says a report. Daim Masih, a first grader, was walking home from school when he was met by Shan Muhammad, 19, a local: "Hi Daim, it's nice to see you," he began. "I have good news, some of our cows have given birth to young calves. Would you like to come with me and see them?" Because the unsuspecting child was fond of animals and knew Shan, he went with him. Walking hand in hand, Masih began to realize that they were not headed for the farm but a secluded place. When he pointed this out to Shan, the latter responded that he had "another big surprise for him." The report continues:

They walked a few meters to some trees when suddenly Shan ripped off Daim's shirt, then the rest of his clothes and threw Daim to the ground. Shan then jumped on Daim and proceeded with a sexual assault and sodomization of poor Daim. While the attack was happening the tiny 7 year old struggled to fight off Shan who was much bigger and more powerful then him. Daim was punched, slapped and kneed by Shan who was shouting obscenities during the attack and demanding Daim to stop his screaming. The violence and the unlawful penetration of Dain was so painful however, that he could not stop his screaming. Desperate for him to be quiet or thrilled by the power and subjugation of his prey, sexual predator Shan began to tighten his hands around Daim's neck and was slowly throttling him to death while having his wicked way with him.

In fact, many Christian children—boys and girls—have been strangled to death during or after being raped in Pakistan over the years. Fortunately for Daim, his grandfather and uncle heard his cries and rushed to the scenes, at which point Muhammad pulled up his pants and fled the scene. The traumatized 7-year-old was subsequently hospitalized.

In another incident, a young, married Christian woman, the mother of a two-year-old girl "was brutally gang-raped by three men and then left tied in the courtyard of a Muslim man's house until she was found by police two days later," according to a report. Sidhra, 20, had just left her mother's home, when three local men began following her. She started to run towards her home, but they caught up with her, and, according to the report, "grabbed her at which point Sidhra blacked-out. She is unable to recall the events of the next 36 hours at this time." The family eventually learned that she was seen bound to a chair in the courtyard of a local home. The report continues:

[A]ll her family ran to the house of Mohammed Ilyas and peered through the gates when the mother saw her daughter tied up unconscious to a chair with a gag in her mouth, restrained in the courtyard of the neighbor's home, she started to scream. As each sibling saw their sister they too began to scream and shout hysterically. They banged on the gates and one brother climbed over and unlocked the gate from inside and rushed towards his sister. Sidhra was fully clothed and tied at her wrists and legs the rope securing her was so tight bruises could be seen on her wrists. Despite attempts to wake her it took a few minutes to revive her and she remained dizzy—she showed signs of having been drugged.

When she awoke, Sidhra, who "was unconscious for the whole two days and believes that she was subjected to rape," identified the three local men, all nephews of Mohammed Ilyas, the owner. Although her father went to lodge a complaint at the police station, "The Police refused to acknowledge her kidnap or rape and did not initially register a First Incident Report (FIR), as they told the family they had no evidence." After much pressure from the family and other local elders, police registered a crime and arrested two of the assailants—only to release them after some time. Although the family continued to seek justice, "the family holds little hope of any prosecution, as the courts and the police are exhibiting little empathy and seem keen on exonerating the wealthy Muslims," according to the report. Later, Sidhra said:

I am totally distraught, a visit to my mother has become a day of ruin for me. I have suffered a brutal kidnap and rape by disgusting men with no shame.... The thought of what the men done to me makes me shudder, I have nightmares and feel like my whole world has collapsed. I am terrified of walking on the streets at night and am finding it hard to cope with a deep depression that has consumed me. I had a happy life and that has been taken away from me, but the cruel men who stole my joy will soon be released to threaten me and to attack other women like me. There is no justice in this country.

Jihad on Christian Freedom

Kyrgyzstan: Unknown attackers torched a church building in the Muslim-majority nation. The small Baptist community was left "fear[ing] for its safety," says the report: "The damage to the church has forced its 40 Kyrgyz and Russian members to start searching for a new place of worship, while wondering if there will be a further attack."

An official told church members that the attack was "organized by those who don't like your church and Christianity in the midst of a Muslim country." "We don't believe that the police will find and punish those who burned our church," a congregation member said. The report adds that, "Instead of pursuing the arsonists, local Christians said police have asked questions about who funded the church building, how many Kyrgyz are members, and why, as ethnic Muslims, they do not go to the local mosque."

Kenya: Muslim students beat and stabbed their Christian counterparts for refusing to convert to Islam at Nairobi's Jamhuri High School. Hostilities began when Muslim students complained of discrimination. This prompted school officials to designate separate bathrooms and sections in the library for Christians and Muslims. It was not long, however, before the Muslim students began defaming Christianity and pressuring Christians to recite the shahada, the Islamic proclamation of faith, and to uphold Muslim rituals. "Some Muslim students forcefully tried to induct Christian students into their Islam faith, and those who refused were knifed, while others were physically beaten," a local source said. "The knives and machetes used are alleged to have come from outside the school." At least 35 students — including some Muslims, as the Christians did defend themselves — were injured in the melee. Some Christian students received hospital treatment for stab wounds and other injuries; the principal was also injured. The school was subsequently closed indefinitely.

Uganda: A Christian widow was poisoned by her Muslim neighbors on Christmas Day. Earlier that morning, the mother of five was pleasantly surprised when two female Muslim neighbors visited her with food gifts. After they left, she began preparing lunch for her family and used some of the recently brought ingredients. Before serving her family, she tasted the meal and within minutes, was vomiting. "When she started screaming and was continuously vomiting, I called in a taxi and rushed her to Kabuna dispensary, where it was found that she had been poisoned," a family member said. She was treated and discharged from the hospital the next day. An analysis of the food items gifted her were revealed to contain poison. A local meeting was convened and the Muslim neighbor, on being question, confessed to poisoning the food. "Accused of intending to kill Madina and her family members," the reports notes, "Hajira asked for forgiveness, saying that since Madina's family left Islam two years ago, the loudness of their weekly worship at their house with some other church members had been disturbing her and other Muslim neighbors." Despite the attempted murder of the apostates, "village leaders made no legal decisions.

Police have not been called, apparently in order to keep tensions with the Muslim community from escalating, but the in-law [of Madina] said Muslim neighbors have started taunting Madina's children by calling them infidels."

In a separate account, according to one report, Munabi Abdullah, a 37-year-old Muslim man who embraced Christianity, was met with ostracism. On the evening of his conversion, and "with an irrepressible joy in his heart, he shared his experience with his wife, Aisha Namukoli. She became furious." In the convert's own words, "My wife shouted at me in front of the children, saying, 'Kafir, Kafir [infidel]! You are a big shame to the family.' She then pushed me out of the house." Later when he returned, he found several people including his father and mosque members at his house. When he tried to greet them, they silently and angrily stared at him; then his father stood up and said, "You are no longer my son, be cursed forever." "He hit me with a walking stick that was in his hand and hurt my left hand," Abdullah explains. "I managed to escape through a banana farm, and after a short while I was at the pastor's house" where he sought refuge. Local Muslim leaders have since prevented him from having any access to his wife and seven children, aged between 3 and 17.

Nigeria: To coerce, it appears, a Christian woman, 40, and her daughter 21, to convert to Islam, local Muslims falsely accused the two of kidnapping another family member, a child. Problems had begun soon after the husband/father of the family converted to Islam in order to obtain a government job. Amina Isa, his wife, explained: "They told him that he cannot be appointed as a ward head because he's a Christian, and that if he converts to Islam, he'll be appointed the ward head. I advised him against changing his religious faith for worldly position, but after much pressure from Muslims in our area, he succumbed to the demand and became a Muslim.... I reminded him that he should remember that all my family members are Muslims, but that I am the only Christian in that family, and that I married him because he was a Christian like me, so I cannot now convert to Islam simply because the Muslims have appointed him a ward head." Her five children also refused to convert and insisted on remaining Christian. She continues:

Because of their refusal to convert too, we have been threatened, beaten, and subjected to all forms of indignities by my husband and his Muslim collaborators. They've [her children] constantly been threatened, beaten, and harassed. In fact, at one time, [the oldest daughter] had to take her younger siblings and go into hiding, but both have been traced and captured by the officials and are currently being held against their will in a location undisclosed to me.... Right now, my daughters are in the custody of these Muslim officials and are being forced into Islam, while at the same time, we are being tried on false charges. All this is to force us to recant. We can never stop being Christians, and we are confident that the God we serve can never abandon us in our trying moments.

After the father forcibly enrolled his youngest daughter in an Islamic school, and her mother and older sister removed her and re-enrolled her in a Christian school, "Their father, in anger, came to me demanding for both girls. When I told him that the children have decided to remain as Christians, he and other Muslim officials in our village went to file charges against me on abducting my own children at the Magistrate Court in Tudun Wada town, a trial I'm still facing for refusing to change my religious faith. They summoned me and demanded I withdraw my daughter from the Christian school, bring her back to the village, and hand her over to them. Since I was helpless, I did as instructed by them and brought my daughter back to them."

Separately "Pastor Simput Eagles Dafup has been arrested and whisked away to an unknown destination ... for allegedly converting a Muslim girl to a Christian, in Plateau State," a report disclosed. Speaking of this incident, another pastor, Kallamu Musa Ali Dikwa, and executive director of Voice of Northern Christian Movement, said: "Nigeria security has declared war against Christians in this country." He also accused the Nigerian government of treating Christians and Muslims differently: "Muslims have abducted 100 Christian girls under the age of 18 and forcefully converted them to Islam and we have reported to several security agencies but no arrest was made or return of Christian girls to their parents.... The abduction of Christian girls has continued unabated. Such scenarios are serious cases of injustice against Christians in the country, and the perpetrators have often gone Scott free."

European Union/Switzerland: While uncritically taking in and conferring refugee status on countless Muslim migrants, European authorities continued singling out those most in need of sanctuary for deportation. In one instance, a Christian legal group filed an expert brief with the European Court of Human Rights in support of a Muslim man from Afghanistan who converted to Christianity and who risked being deported from Switzerland. The group, known as ADF International, said the man, if forced back to Afghanistan, would as an apostate from Islam face immense persecution, possibly including death: "Afghanistan is not a safe place for a Christian convert," it said. "The Court should ask Switzerland to stop turning a blind eye to the situation of religious minorities in Afghanistan.... This means much more than demanding a convert practice his faith in secret. Sending a refugee back to a country where they face persecution because of their faith is incompatible with the Convention."

The Christian legal group ADF International filed an expert brief with the European Court of Human Rights in support of a Muslim man from Afghanistan who converted to Christianity and who risked being deported from Switzerland. Afghanistan is not a safe place for a Christian convert," it said. "The Court should ask Switzerland to stop turning a blind eye to the situation of religious minorities in Afghanistan..."

About this Series

While not all, or even most, Muslims are involved, persecution of Christians by Muslim extremists is growing. The report posits that such Muslim persecution is not random but rather systematic, and takes place irrespective of language, ethnicity, or location.

Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the  incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.

          Los bancos suizos están incorporando clientes y activos criptográficos      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Otro banco privado suizo ha anunciado en un comunicado que está abierto para aceptar activos que se generaron con criptomonedas. El banco privado Maerki Baumann en Zurich está abierto a aceptar activos que se generaron con criptomonedas, "bajo la condición de que se cumplan estrictamente los estrictos requisitos reglamentarios y legales", dijo el director gerente Stephan Zwahlen a news.Bitcoin.com.

"Suiza sabe cómo proteger los activos"

La mayoría de los bancos suizos suelen rechazar los activos generados por las transacciones de criptomonedas, pero existen algunas excepciones. Según los informes, Maerki Baumann siguió a Falcon y aceptó oficialmente el manejo de dichos activos, pero no ofrece soluciones de gestión de activos en criptomonedas ni cuentas en criptografía, dijo el director gerente del banco a news.Bitcoin.com. Los fondos recaudados a partir de las transacciones criptográficas especulativas, los pagos por los servicios prestados o los éxitos de la minería están creciendo cada vez más, junto con la popularidad de las criptomonedas. Pero estos activos según los informes a menudo cumplen el rechazo de los bancos suizos. 
Vontobel , otro banco privado suizo, junto con Falcon, se encuentra entre los prestamistas que acuerdan manejar inversiones basadas en criptomonedas en nombre de sus clientes.

La contradicción suiza

Una de las contradicciones sobre Suiza, que aspira a convertirse en una "cripto nación" es que a pesar de tener cientos de las compañías de cifrado más famosas en todo el mundo con sede en Zug, casi ninguno de ellos tiene una cuenta bancaria suiza. La razón principal es el temor al dinero negro que ha contaminado a algunos de los principales bancos suizos a lo largo de la historia, dijo Marc Bernegger, un fintech suizo y empresario de cifrado, a news.Bitcoin.com en una entrevista en Zurich.
Bernegger ha sido un empresario de Fintech durante casi 20 años, y dijo que leyó el libro blanco de Satoshi en 2012. Inmediatamente sintió que Bitcoin tenía mucho potencial. "Entendí desde el primer día el impacto que la tecnología iba a tener. En los viejos tiempos, casi nadie en la industria tradicional de servicios financieros ni siquiera oía hablar de Bitcoin ", dijo. 
Los bancos suizos son clientes y activos de criptografía integrados
Marc Bernegger, miembro de la Junta de Crypto Finance AG
"Hoy en día, cuando se trata de criptomonedas, existe una comprensión de los servicios financieros que me recuerda [a] la antigua privacidad bancaria", dijo Bernegger. "No se trata de replicar eso nuevamente, pero creo que Suiza tiene una sólida reputación y conocimiento sobre la protección de los activos".
Sin embargo, el empresario suizo señaló que uno de los problemas en Suiza es que, oficialmente, casi no hay bancos haciendo cripto. "Todo el mundo va al Banco Frick, un pequeño banco en Liechtenstein, a una hora de Zurich", explicó Bernegger, pero esto está cambiando lentamente, observó. Bernegger, que también es miembro de la junta directiva de Crypto Finance Group, es parte de un grupo de trabajo dirigido por el ministro de Finanzas de Suiza, Ueli Maurer, y el ministro de Economía y Educación, Johann Schneider-Ammann, que incluye a funcionarios federales y locales, así como a miembros de varias nuevas empresas y representantes legales. "La iniciativa apunta a crear un entorno más amigable para las empresas", explicó Bernegger, "los nombres de los bancos [involucrados] no son públicos, pero hay algunos bancos principales [suizos] y varios otros bancos suizos que pronto "clientes de criptografía a bordo", reveló. "Personalmente creo que dentro de seis meses, será bastante común abrir cuentas como un cliente corporativo haciendo negocios de cifrado en Suiza".

El ministro de Finanzas invita a la Asociación Bancaria y al Banco Nacional a debatir

"El consejero federal Ueli Maurer recientemente tomó la iniciativa de invitar a la Asociación Bancaria Suiza (SBA), el Banco Nacional Suizo (SNB) y la Autoridad de Supervisión Bancaria de Finma a una mesa redonda para discutir el tema de las cuentas bancarias de las compañías de criptografía. Como resultado de esta mesa redonda, la SBA formó un grupo de trabajo para abordar el problema y está a la cabeza ", dijo a news.Bitcoin.com Peter Minder, jefe de comunicación del Departamento Federal de Finanzas de Suiza.
Swissquote Group, el banco suizo en línea, reportó una ganancia de 25.7 millones de CHF (~ $ 26.1million USD) desde el primer semestre de este año, lo que representa un aumento del 44 por ciento con respecto al mismo periodo del año anterior desde que comenzó a aceptar crypto. news.Bitcoin.com informó a principios de este mes. Desde una perspectiva de facturación, Swissquote es una de las empresas suizas con los ingresos más altos de todos los criptomerios en Suiza.
Hypothekarbank Lenzburg , un banco heredado suizo, también abrió la puerta a las empresas de cripto y blockchain en junio de este año. Su CEO, Marianne Wildi, quien se entrenó como programadora de computadoras, argumentó que Suiza debería adoptar un franco suizo criptográfico. El banco también evaluó los posibles riesgos de cumplimiento antes de decidir abrirse a blockchain y empresas de cifrado, y también informó a Finma de su decisión.

Swiss Crypto Companies Target Banking Licences

Las empresas de cifrado suizo también están tratando activamente de adquirir licencias bancarias con Finma, la autoridad supervisora ​​del mercado financiero nacional, y pronto podrán operar como los bancos. Es una cuestión de tiempo, dicen algunos.
El principal problema para Finma es que muchos de los tokens de criptomonedas se consideran valores, y para manejar valores como intermediario en Suiza, una empresa necesita obtener una licencia de intermediario, que al parecer nadie en Suiza dentro de la industria de cifrado tiene a este respecto. escenario. "Finma diferencia los tokens de pago, los tokens de utilidad y los tokens respaldados por activos. Los tokens de pago y utilidad no se consideran valores ", dijo a news.Bitcoin.com Yassine Ben Hamida, un ex banquero suizo que ahora está completamente involucrado en proyectos de cifrado, durante una entrevista telefónica en Suiza. "El problema es que necesita tener una licencia de corredor / distribuidor para manejar los tokens que se consideran valores", confirmó.
Los bancos suizos son clientes y activos de criptografía integrados
A Crypto Broker, que pertenece a Crypto Finance AG, no se le otorgó la licencia del distribuidor de seguridad de Finma, ya que la compañía no está negociando tokens de seguridad en este momento, dijo su director general en un correo electrónico. Sin embargo, la compañía está en proceso de obtener la licencia, se confirmó a news.Bitcoin.com.
Crypto Fund, un administrador de activos que también forma parte de Crypto Finance Group, es la primera compañía en Suiza que puede distribuir fondos extranjeros a "inversores calificados" o personas llamadas de alto patrimonio. Pero no son los únicos, dicen las fuentes involucradas en el mundo criptográfico suizo, porque supuestamente hay muchas empresas independientes suizas que lanzaron certificados para invertir en criptografía. "Este es uno de nuestros primeros hitos, porque finalmente nos estamos moviendo para convertirnos en un administrador de activos con licencia y un corredor. Crypto Finance Group aspira a convertirse en el proveedor de tecnología e inversión más avanzado y seguro del mundo ", dijo Mark Bernegger, que también es miembro de la junta directiva de Crypto Finance Group, a news.Bitcoin.com en un comunicado.

Custodia: cómo se pueden mantener los activos de cifrado en los bancos

Los principales medios informaron recientemente que Goldman Sachs está considerando un plan para ofrecer la custodia de los fondos criptográficos, sin citar ninguna fuente sólida. Según los informes, se cree que los japoneses Nomura, Bank of New York Mellon, JP Morgan Chase y Northern Trust están trabajando o explorando ofertas de custodia. En Suiza, actualmente no hay bancos que ofrezcan servicios de depósito de esos valores. Sin embargo, este es un mercado que se desarrollará rápidamente, según un ex ejecutivo de UBS y también ex ejecutivo de Julius Baer en Suiza.
Gazprombank Switzerland Ltd. , un banco ruso de propiedad estatal, y el tercero más grande del país por activos,  también está investigando el servicio de custodia de activos de criptomonedas y trabajando con auditores y con Finma, según fuentes cercanas al asunto. Sin embargo, el banco no pudo hacer ninguna declaración oficial sobre el tema en esta etapa, dijo una portavoz a news.Bitcoin.com.

<b>Only on a few grids worldwide (such as Norway which is mainly hydro, Switzerland ditto, France which is mainly nuclear) do electric cars reduce CO2 emissions.</b> On most grids, electric cars either achieve no saving in CO2 emissions, or even result in an increase in CO2 emissions. This is one of the fallacies behind the use and roll out of electric vehicles. I am rather sceptical of the argument <blockquote>studies show that bigger, heavier vehicles are safer. Drivers and passengers in 54.5 mpg vehicles are more likely to die in a crash – and far more likely to be maimed, disfigured, disabled or paralyzed...</blockquote> since Europe has a lot of such vehicles, and I suspect that crash results in Europe do not support that line of argument. I suspect that some of the European countries have the least fatalities/serious casualties. This may be because Eurpoean crash/safety requirements are more stringent than the US. According to Wikipedia car fatalities per country: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b0/Road_traffic_accidents_world_map_-_Death_-_WHO2012.svg The light yellow is less than 5 per 100,000 and includes Japan, the home of the light/small vehicle.

          Foreign Political Sabotage and Europe's War on Israel - by Judith Bergman      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The European Union, specifically the UK, Germany, Norway and Sweden, sinisterly engage in political sabotage to undermine Israel by use of NGOs, in total disrespect of international norms

Europe, especially Western Europe, appears to have decided that destroying Israel is in its national interest. Since history has shown that Israel cannot be defeated militarily, Europe has decided to aid and abet the Arab effort in removing Israel from the map by all other means at its disposal.

A new report from NGO Monitor shows that “European-backed NGOs are flooding Israel’s courts with cases in an attempt to circumvent the democratic process to change Israeli policies while bypassing diplomatic channels in an unprecedented manner”.

A Norwegian NGO, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), funded by the EU, the UK and the UN, is conducting legal advocacy in close cooperation with the Palestinian Authority (PA) in violation of the principle of neutrality in humanitarian aid. The legal advocacy consists of literally flooding the Israeli court system with cases related to the Arab-Israeli conflict.

According to NGO Monitor, the NRC, through its Arab and Israeli partner NGOs, submits between 600-800 new cases to Israeli courts annually. In 2018, ICLA aims to pursue “5,399 opened and continuing cases for legal assistance in the West Bank (West Bank 1162 new and 4237 continuing)” as well as 10 cases to be submitted to the UN and/or other international mechanisms. From 2009-2014, NRC “provided legal representation in court for 4,069 cases.”

According to a lawyer affiliated with the NRC and cited by NGO Monitor, the number of cases submitted to Israeli courts are part of a strategy to use “every possible legal measure to disrupt the Israeli judicial system…as many cases as possible are registered and that as many cases as possible are appealed to increase the workload of the courts and the Supreme Court to such an extent that there will be a blockage.

Another word for that would be foreign political sabotage.


Among the issues that the NRC challenges in court are “laws, policies or practices that beneficiaries and other stakeholders consider either discriminatory and/or possible to legally challenge through public interest cases.

Between 2014 and 2016, the NRC had 4015 opened and ongoing cases of legal assistance, 419 advocacy briefings given on specific housing, land, property and residency issues, 152 laws, policies or practices challenged through public interest cases, and 87 issues of cooperation with UNDP, the PA and legal aid partners on “development of a sustainable legal aid system for housing, land and property law”.

The NRC also financially supports local anti-Israeli NGOs in their legal endeavors on behalf of Arab terrorists. For example, the NRC provided Israeli NGO Hamoked with approximately NIS 5.4 million (approximately $1.4 million) from 2015-2017. Hamoked, during this time, petitioned the Israeli High Court on behalf of family members of terrorists and against the confiscation and demolition orders issued to the homes of Arabs accused of terrorism. It represented families of terrorists responsible for the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens, the Har Nof massacre, the Henkin family murder, and the murders of Dani Gonen and Malachi Rozenfeld.

The British government, which is largely responsible for funding NCR’s attempts at sabotaging the Israeli judicial and political processes, has been very reluctant to admit its role, refusing to comply with NGO Monitor’s Freedom of Information requests. The UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) has provided £6.5 million for the NCR’s bombardment of Israeli courts with cases from 2013-2016. According to NGO Monitor, the DFID has stated that its purpose with the funding is to change Israeli policies. In 2013-2016, approximately £1.4 million was spent “directly on legal cases that challenged demolitions or evictions. 2,541 eviction or demolition orders were suspended as a result.

Unfortunately, according to NGO Monitor, the Israeli public and authorities appear to be entirely unaware of the scope of these efforts.

These subversive activities exist in addition to other highly political and destabilizing activities that the EU and Western European states already support in Israel, through a network of anti-Israeli NGOs. Another recent report by NGO monitor showed that between 2012 and 2016, 39 Israeli non-governmental organizations received NIS 515.8 million ($142.6 million) from foreign donors. Just over 60 percent of these resources came from foreign governments through direct or indirect funding. Twenty-five foreign governments and intergovernmental organizations were involved in funding the 39 NGOs, with Germany as top donor, followed by the EU, Norway, the Netherlands and an intergovernmental organization called the International Humanitarian Law Secretariat, jointly funded by Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland and the Netherlands.

Many of the foreign funded NGOs are major players in the boycott, divestment and sanction (BDS) efforts against Israel and in the attempt to have Israeli soldiers dragged in front of international courts for defending Israel. The NGOs include, among others, organizations such as B’Tselem, whose director has repeatedly appealed for international action against Israel, comparing Israeli policies to “crimes against God and man”.

The NGO’s also include Breaking the Silence, which collects anonymous and unsubstantiated allegations against the Israel Defense Forces from low-level soldiers in order to promote “war crime” charges against Israel. Another such organization is Coalition of Women for Peace, a major player in international BDS campaigns against Israel, especially through its “Who Profits” project, a database that identifies targets for anti-Israel divestment and boycotts.

Western European governments and the EU will never openly admit that they are supporting the disruption and ultimately destruction of Israeli society through insidious NGO networks. On the contrary, European heads of state like to portray themselves as peace-loving, boycott- opposing civilized states, who keep to the international norms of state behavior. However, undermining another sovereign state through the deceptive use of NGOs in order to circumvent the accepted modes of international cooperation is foreign sabotage, pure and simple.

It also undermines the respect for international law — the same international law that these European governments constantly claim that Israel is violating.

          08/08 Links Pt2: Dozens of rockets fired at south, IDF strikes 12 Hamas targets; Why the Nazi Analogy and Holocaust Inversion are Antisemitic; Murray: The Left is deceiving itself over antisemitism      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
From Ian:

As dozens of rockets fired at south, IDF strikes 12 Hamas targets in Gaza
Israel’s air force bombed 12 Hamas positions across the Gaza Strip Wednesday night, the military said, as dozens of rockets and mortar shells were fired at southern Israeli communities from the Palestinian enclave, including one barrage that slammed into the city of Sderot, injuring several Israelis.

Throughout the night, wave after wave of alarms sounded in the Hof Ashkelon, Sha’ar Hanegev and Eshkol regions, outside Gaza, sending thousands of Israelis into bomb shelters, where many bedded down for the night with their families.

There were no immediate reports of fresh Israeli injuries or damage.

According to the Israel Defense Forces, 36 projectiles were fired at southern Israel on Wednesday night, including the eight that were launched at Sderot.
Three hurt as rockets fired from Gaza slam into Sderot
Three people were injured when rockets fired from Gaza struck the southern Israeli town of Sderot on Wednesday evening, as tensions between Israel and the Palestinian enclave spiraled dramatically a day after Hamas vowed revenge for the deaths of two of its gunmen.

According to the Israeli military, eight rockets were fired at southern Israel from Gaza at approximately 7:40 p.m. Two of them were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, and at least two landed in the town of Sderot.

Police said officers were sent to four sites where rockets or fragments of Iron Dome missiles struck Sderot.

Dramatic video taken during the attack showed a rocket appearing to strike near where a group of children were huddled against a wall, apparently unable to reach a shelter in time.


IDF strikes Hamas posts in Gaza as fresh rocket sirens sound in south
Israel’s air force bombed a number of Hamas positions across the Gaza Strip Wednesday night, as rocket sirens blared in Israeli communities near the Palestinian enclave hours after a vollay of rockets slammed into the city of Sderot, injuring several Israelis.

Several waves of alarms were heard in the Hof Ashkelon, Sha’ar Hanegev and Eshkol regions, outside Gaza, sending thousands of Israelis into bomb shelters.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted a number of incoming projectiles that were headed toward the Eshkol region, according to a local government spokesperson.



Alan Johnson: Why the Nazi Analogy and Holocaust Inversion are Antisemitic
The following is an excerpt from ‘Antisemitism in the Guise of Anti-Nazism: Holocaust Inversion in the United Kingdom during Operation Protective Edge’, a chapter that will appear in Anti-Zionism and Antisemitism: The Dynamics of Delegitimization, ed. Alvin H. Rosenfeld (Indiana University Press, forthcoming). The editor and publisher have kindly agreed to the advance publication of this excerpt in light of its topicality. The UK Labour Party is debating whether to incorporate the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism, including all its accompanying examples, into its own statutes. This part of my chapter sets out why the use of the Nazi analogy to attack Jews, Israelis and ‘Zionists’ should be considered antisemitic, not least because, understanding more deeply the way racism actually works, the best anti-racist scholarship and practice has long abandoned the notion that for racism to be present, a racist subjectivity and motivation, provable to boot, must be co-present. As well as being cut by two-thirds, the chapter has been edited in a couple of places to help the reader. Thanks to Alvin Rosenfeld for making this possible. (Alan Johnson)

The Nazi analogy and Holocaust inversion, which involves ‘the portrayal of Israel, Israelis and Jews as modern-day Nazis, and Palestinians as the new Holocaust-era Jews’, is a moral disease.[i] The meaning of the analogy and the inversion —specifically, whether it is antisemitic—is contested. A locus of the dispute was the contrasting submissions of two academics, David Feldman and Ben Gidley, to the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Antisemitism’s inquiry into antisemitism in the United Kingdom during the Gaza conflict in the summer of 2014.[ii] The final report of the inquiry noted delicately that ‘there was some debate between those from whom we took expert testimony regarding the nuances of the definition of antisemitism when it comes to Nazi comparison.’[iii] In short, Gidley defined examples of Holocaust inversion as antisemitic discourse, but Feldman, director of the Pears Institute for the Study of Antisemitism at Birkbeck University, did not, arguing that ‘the fact that they are wrong and hurtful does not render them anti-Semitic.’[iv]

Feldman advanced two reasons to deny that Holocaust inversion is antisemitic discourse. First, the inversion is banal (my word, not his)—that is, it is a ‘much used rhetorical device,’ a common rhetorical trope used in many arguments about many subjects, often light-mindedly, lacking any specifically antisemitic content. Feldman cited attacks on the UK Independence Party as Nazis as one example of banality and Israel’s leaders calling its enemies Nazis as another. Second, Feldman pointed out that the inversion is not motivated by an anti-Jewish subjectivity. The target, he points out, was Israel, not Jews; therefore, the inversion cannot be antisemitic. Only when discourse ‘endorse[s] Nazi persecution of Jews’ (e.g., brandishing a ‘Hitler Was Right!’ placard on the high street, as at least one protestor did in 2014) did Feldman consider it antisemitic.[v]
PMW: Abbas running org. designated by Israel as a terror organization
This week the PLO announced 30 positions for top PLO leaders
It announced that Mahmoud Abbas is "responsible for the Palestinian National Fund"
Last year Israel declared the Palestinian National Fund a terror organization
Under Israel's 2016 Counter Terrorism Law: "One who heads a terror organization or manages it or takes part in directing the terror organization in general, directly or indirectly, his sentence - 25 years imprisonment"

The PLO has announced 30 top positions for PLO leaders. In addition to leading the PLO, Mahmoud Abbas is cited as "the one responsible for the Palestinian National Fund":
"1. Chairman Mahmoud Abbas - head of the PLO Executive Committee and the one responsible for the [Palestinian] National Fund" [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 2, 2018]

On March 16, 2017, Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor Liberman declared the Palestinian National Fund a terrorist organization, due to the fund's "massive support for elements responsible for committing severe acts of terrorism against Israel," and because the fund serves "as a significant financial pipeline for tens of millions of shekels that are transferred on a monthly basis to security prisoners held in Israel for committing acts of terrorism and to members of their families."

What is the significance of Mahmoud Abbas now being "responsible" for a terror organization?

According to Israel's "Counter Terrorism Law 2016-5776": "Heading a terrorist Organization
20. One who heads a terror organization or manages it or takes part in directing the terror organization in general, directly or indirectly, his sentence - 25 years imprisonment;"
Kuwait Airlines to pay damages for denying Israeli passenger service
Kuwait Airways will pay an Israeli citizen damages for refusing to sell her a plane ticket in November 2017.

Mandy Blumenthal filed a racial discrimination and harassment lawsuit with the assistance of U.K. Lawyers for Israel against Kuwait Airways after they refused to sell her a plane ticket to Bangkok once she presented an airline representative with her Israeli passport, Britain's Jewish News reported.

The incident was caught on video.

Blumenthal said, "It is horrible to be singled out, to be told you are not allowed to do something because of who you are. … In my mind, it is an anti-Semitic policy to single out the only Jewish state to boycott."

David Berens, one of Blumenthal's attorneys, said, "The law is clear: Direct discrimination on grounds of nationality in the provision of a service to the public is illegal. Ms. Blumenthal has done a service in showing up Kuwait Airways' illegal policy. Kuwait Airways is now legally obliged to end this policy or end its services from the U.K. altogether."
Douglas Murray: Jeremy Corbyn and the cynical tactics of the left
There is the decent option – which is also the hardest. This would consist of sincerely trying to work out why the main party of the British left is now led by a man who keeps turning up in every international anti-Semitic fever swamp. There doesn’t seem like there’s much of an appetite for that option.

So then there are the indecent options. These include attempting to change the subject while merely pretending to deal with the first matter. For the time being this appears to be the most attractive alternative.

Thus it is that portions of the left have decided to counter what they regard as the ‘anti-Semitism card’ with the ‘Islamophobia card’. Of course there are other people hanging around with not very much to do who are very happy to join this bandwagon. ‘You criticise me for anti-Semitism? Fine – I raise you “Islamophobia”.’ How admirable. How cynical. How revealing.

Of course there are so many problems with this tactic (for tactic it is) that it is hard to know where to begin. How about with the basics? Such as the fact that anti-Semitism is a centuries (indeed millennia) old disease, rooted not in facts but in conspiracy-theories, and which in living memory led to the physical annihilation of a third of the world’s Jewish population. Whereas ‘Islamophobia’ is a concept invented by Islamists in the 1990s in order to try to prevent any and all criticism of the religion of Islam.

And just one problem that the proponents of ‘Islamophobia’ vs anti-Semitism will always keep coming across is the problem of what we used to call ‘the facts’. For instance, if two Muslims attack and decapitate a British soldier in broad daylight on the streets of London, or another two Muslims cut the throat of an elderly priest as he is saying mass at a church in Rouen, what are we to say about this? Those who throw around ‘Islamophobe’ want us to say that the people shouting ‘Allah Akbar’ while they slit the throats of infidels are not Muslims. If you fail to toe this line then you are an ‘Islamophobe’.
Douglas Murray: The Left is deceiving itself over antisemitism
The Labour party’s antisemitism problem appears to be here to stay. And one reason for that lies deep beneath any one day’s news. It is not just that the Labour party under Jeremy Corbyn is riddled with antisemites from top to bottom: people who have existed in the party and its surrounding areas for years but who have only now had a light shone upon them. It is much, much more than that. The problem is that there remains a set of fundamental misunderstandings on the political Left over what antisemitism is and where it comes from.

In May, I wrote for this website about the roots of this misunderstanding, which are there for anyone with ears to hear. It is there when Jeremy Corbyn and his followers claim that they will “defeat” or “end” antisemitism; as though one of the world’s oldest hatreds is some medical problem which can be solved with the right medicine. Or if enough ‘will’ is deployed. As I said back then, most Jews will laugh darkly at the idea that you can ever ‘eradicate’ antisemitism.

But the misunderstanding is telling. And it leads to the problem underlying the latest eruption of charges and embarrassments within UK Labour. One of the causes – which can be heard among all of the cheerleaders on the Corbynite Left – is that antisemitism is basically a right-wing disease and something which ‘anti-fascists’ of the kind that Corbynites like to fancy themselves as being could not possibly fall into.

You can hear it in the more honest disputes and debates on the Labour Left: “How dare they use this accusation against us? Don’t they realise this is the sort of stick we use to beat them?”

Of all the simplistic readings of history that prevail in our time, this is one of the most disheartening. Which is why I am forever recommending that people – especially young people – read a book by the distinguished, liberal, New York-based writer Paul Berman.
UK delegation to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance issues statement condemning tampering with the International Definition of Antisemitism
The UK delegation to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) has issued a statement condemning efforts to tamper with the International Definition of Antisemitism by removing or amending the examples of antisemitism which form part of the definition.

The statement does not mention the Labour Party, but the timing and content of the statement appears to be a response to the Labour Party’s refusal to adopt a number of the examples in the definition.

In a pointed remark, the statement says: “Any ‘modified’ version of the IHRA definition that does not include all of its 11 examples is no longer the IHRA definition. Adding or removing language undermines the months of international diplomacy and academic rigour that enabled this definition to exist. If one organisation or institution can amend the wording to suit its own needs, then logically anyone else could do the same. We would once again revert to a world where antisemitism goes unaddressed simply because different entities cannot agree on what it is.”

Campaign Against Antisemitism welcomes IHRA’s intervention to defend the integrity of the definition. It should shame the Labour Party that its efforts to tamper with and undermine the definition precipitated such a move.
Leaked Labour papers reveal scale of challenge to tackle antisemitism
Leaked Labour disciplinary papers have laid bare the scale of the challenge the party’s governing body faces in tackling antisemitism.

The paperwork, seen by the Guardian, was sent to national executive committee (NEC) members on 3 July, ahead of a meeting of the governing body’s disputes panel, which can refer members for expulsion.

The papers for the disputes panel, which all members of the ruling body can attend, lay out the party’s case against suspended members, compiled by party officers who then recommend sanctions to take.

Around 70 cases are believed to be pending. However, the papers reveal only a minority were considered by the NEC because of time constraints. At least three of the most serious cases of antisemitism were referred to Labour’s highest disciplinary body for possible expulsion.

Examples considered by the disciplinary panel included:
- The founder of the controversial Facebook group Palestine Live calling it a “badge of honour” to be investigated by the party
- A member claiming the Israeli lobby had manufactured the party’s antisemitism crisis
- A member suggesting Adolf Hitler’s policy on Zionism “might not be mutually exclusive with his later actions”

Jeremy Corbyn reportedly applauded antisemitic poetry at Palestine Solidarity Campaign meeting
Jeremy Corbyn applauded the reading of an antisemitic poem during a meeting of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign in 2012 at which he was a guest speaker, according to a report from 2012 that has now come to light.

Anti-racism activist Richard Millett wrote in 2012 that Mr Corbyn sat on stage and listened while an anti-Israel activist, Claire Quinn, recited a poem entitled Israel is dying, applauding afterwards. Mr MIllett says that the poem included the lines: “It is now not the Nazi state but Israel that blocks the seas. ¬ It is not Auschwitz that stops the ship that carries hope and messages, ¬ But those that might have died there. ¬ So let this poem drive the Hope that heads for Gaza. ¬ The victims are now the torturers. ¬ Freedom must be for all not just the victors ¬ Whose victory brings forgetfulness of what they suffered once now brought to others.”

In other allusions to the atrocities of the Nazi regime, speakers compared Gaza to the Warsaw Ghetto, where tens of thousands of Jews were forcibly imprisoned prior to being despatched to extermination camps, and asserted in reference to Israel that “no oppression or injustice has ever gone without falling. The apartheid regime ended, the collapse of Nazism…”

The International Definition of Antisemitism states that, “Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis” is antisemitic.
CAA exposes Labour Councillor Irfan Mohammed, who shared Facebook post claiming Jews were warned to stay home on 9/11
Campaign Against Antisemitism has exposed a Labour councillor, Ifran Mohammed, who shared a Facebook post claiming that Jews were warned to stay home on 9/11.

Mr Mohammed is a councillor for the Ferndale Ward in Lambeth. According to Lambeth Council’s website, Mr Mohammed sits on the Equality Impact Assessment Panel and is a member of Faiths Together in Lambeth.

In stark contrast with his supposed commitment to equality and interfaith togetherness, on 5th December 2015 he posted a video on Facebook claiming that Jews “received a text message before the incident ‘Do not come to work in [sic] September 11’” and that there are “Israeli ties to the September 11 attacks”.

After Mr Mohammed failed to respond to our attempt to contact him, we provided details about the matter to the media. He did not respond to their requests for comment either, however he has been active on social media and has deleted the original Facebook post.

The claim that Jews were behind the 9/11 atrocities is one of the most vile antisemitic conspiracy theories of recent times, not least because so many Jews lost their lives that day.
Labour policy decision-maker George McManus suspended following antisemitic Facebook comment
George McManus, who sits on the Labour Party’s National Policy Forum as its first chair, has been suspended from his Party role after posting a Facebook comment about Tom Watson likening him to “Judas” for accepting donations from Jewish businessman Sir Trevor Chinn.

McManus wrote: “Apparently [the] Electoral Commission states that Watson received £50,000+ from Jewish donors. At least Judas only got 30 pieces of silver.” Judas was supposedly a disciple of Jesus who betrayed him for money, and is often used as a means of portraying Jews as money-obsessed and disloyal.

Labour MP Wes Streeting condemned Mr McManus’ post as an “antisemitic trope”, and veteran Labour activist Luke Akehurst decried it as “naked antisemitism, jumping straight to the medieval Christian version”.

Mr McManus’ suspension came after Luciana Berger, leader of the Jewish Labour Movement, submitted a formal complaint to the Party. In response to his suspension Momentum, which Mr McManus represents on the National Policy Forum, tweeted thanks to those who “drew attention to the appalling, antisemitic comment”, and assured their followers that Momentum will not tolerate “any antisemitism, racism or online abuse from candidates we support”.


IsraellyCool: WATCH: Johnny Rotten’s Epic Rant Against Jeremy Corbyn & The Labour Party; “I Am Jew!”
We already knew that former Sex Pistol Johnny Rotten was one of the most unorthodox defenders of Israel out there. So it might not surprise you to see this: an epic rant against Jeremy Corbyn and his antisemitism-plagued Labour party.

Do I even need to put up a language warning?!
New York Democrat Ocasio-Cortez cheered at Jewish museum event
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic congressional candidate and rising progressive star, was cheered at an event at a Jewish museum Tuesday that did not touch on Israel or the Jewish community.

Ocasio-Cortez appeared at a conference hosted by the Immigrant Arts Coalition at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, participating in a panel focused on women in the arts. While politics did frequently come up, none of the panelists — including Ocasio-Cortez, who has been critical of Israel — mentioned Jews or Israel.
NGO Monitor: Analysis of EU-Funded Projects on Israeli Civil Society to I’lam Center
In 2016, the European Union (EU), via the European Neighbourhood and Partnership funding Instrument (ENI), provided the Israeli NGO Il’am Arab Center for Media Freedom Development and Research a total of €365,803 (2017-2019) for “The Creation of the Freedom Protection Council: Ensuring democratic space for Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in Israel.” As indicated by this title and noted explicitly by the EU, “The overall objective of this action is to ensure active engagement of Civil Society Organisations by countering systemic barriers that limit their participation in policymaking processes.”1 The EU database lists the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute as a partner, and Van Leer refers to the role of the Association for Civil Rights in Israel in formulating this agenda.

Political lobbying as a central facet of this project is made explicit in a “strategic action plan” (Hebrew), which bears the EU’s logo on every page, published by I’lam.2 The plan calls for what amounts to opposition political activity: extensive lobbying efforts in the Knesset and multiple media campaigns. I’lam and its partners will “act in the Knesset and public sphere in order to form public and political coalitions whose aim will be to prevent legislation that harms freedoms and advances [legislation] that promotes them.”

The “[Freedom Protection] Council’s flagship demand” is expressed in lobbying efforts aimed at uniting MKs “who identify with the activities of the [left wing] organizations” in order to “initiate counter-legislation” aimed at fighting the right’s attempt to “aggressively promote its worldview, regardless of ideological or national minority groups.”

In addition, the contextual background of Il’am plan is highly politicized and derogatory, intimating throughout that Israel is not and never was a democratic country. Historically, the State of Israel was established “on the ruins of the Palestinian people, which was the demographic majority in the geographic region where [Israel] was founded.” For decades, the authors assert that Israel has maintained for decades a “sophisticated system of control consisting of a policy of segregation, dependence, and supervision.”
Contradicting Netanyahu, EU says it hasn’t stopped funding left-wing association
The European Union on Wednesday denied Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s claim that the bloc had agreed to halt its funding for an Israeli association of left-wing groups, saying it was merely “examining possible breaches of contractual obligations.”

A day after Netanyahu declared that the decision to terminate funds for the Freedom Protection Council stemmed from Israeli pressure, the EU said in a statement that such decisions were “for the EU to take, and for the EU alone.”

Israel charges that the Freedom Protection Council, established in 2017 by Arab-Israeli media freedom NGO I’lam, seeks to “delegitimize” Israel.

It is composed of representatives of dozens of leftist Israeli NGOs including B’Tselem and Adalah, with the stated objective of fighting attempts to limit democratic freedoms in the country and resisting attacks on human rights groups.
Jewish community grows angry, impatient with Sawant and Seattle Council
After a recent anti-Semitic event and the ongoing vandalism of a Jewish cemetery, some in Seattle’s Jewish community are left wondering if the city cares about their concerns.

In May, scores of local Jews called out Councilmember Kshama Sawant and the Seattle LGBTQ Commission for hosting a virulently anti-Semitic event. Others have been disgusted with the frequent vandalism of Bikur Cholim cemetery in Seattle, which seems to go unaddressed. And a younger demographic of Jewish Seattleites are dealing with open anti-Semitism, masquerading as a legitimate social justice movement, at the University of Washington.

Some see these issues indicative of a bigger concern for the Jewish community.

“I don’t think the city could care less [about the] straight-up anti-Semitism or slightly watered down anti-Zionism/BDS [Boycott, Divest, Sanctions Movement],” Ian Eisenberg, owner of Uncle Ike’s, told me. “The city doesn’t want to get involved. We are on our own [and] Sawant leads the charge.”

Others believe there are valid concerns, but that Seattle is a great place for the Jewish community.

“I don’t think they’re indicative of any kind of broad-based movement or reflection of anti-Semitism or how Jews have quality of life here,” Democratic State Senator Reuven Carlyle (WA-36) explained to me. “I think, overall, you have a really fabulous connection to the community and the vast views of the majority of Seattle reflect well upon the Jewish community and our overall quality of life.”
IsraellyCool: Radical Leftist Group Jewdas Calls Bibi Netanyahu a “Known Antisemite” & “Notorious Jew-Hater”
A radical leftist group Jewdas has published a vile piece claiming – wait for it – that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is antisemitic according to the IHRA working definition of antisemitism.

Netanyahu is antisemitic, according to IHRA definitions

World leaders have been criticised for sharing a platform with known antisemite, Benjamin Netanyahu.

Donald Trump, Angela Merkel and Theresa May have all come under fire for meeting the notorious Jew-hater and prime minister of Israel.

The Israeli Prime Minister, self-styled as ‘Bibi’ has become notorious worldwide for Jew-baiting, racist stereotyping and Holocaust minimisation.

In her most scathing teshuva yet, Rabbi Geoffrey Cohen denounced Netanyahu as a racist. “Several times in the last year, Bibi has egregiously flouted the IHRA examples of antisemitism. Any world leader who meets with this man is guilty of racism by association.”
Amazon Selling "Make Israel Palestine Again" T-Shirts
Amazon.com is selling T-shirts that say "Make Israel Palestine Again," a not so subtle endorsement of ending the State of Israel. The shirts are listed as "In Stock. Ships from and sold by Amazon.com." This stands in contrast with some merchandise Amazon sells that comes from third-party sources.

Similar shirts are available on Etsy.com.

The slogan "Make Israel Palestine Again" is used often on social media, including a Twitter page and an Instagram account. An image on the Twitter feed shows President Trump wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat Photoshopped to say "Make Israel Palestine Again."

Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) activist Miko Peled used the Trump-style "Make Israel Palestine Again" hat as his Twitter avatar and in a November 2016 post. Peled linked to a petition that calls Israel's existence into question.

The BDS movement aims to isolate Israel politically and economically using sanctions and boycotts of Israeli goods.
Rappers Tyga and Fat Joe Cause Cancellation of Entire Music Festival in Israel, Citing ‘Security Situation’
American celebrity rappers Fat Joe and Tyga, who were slated to headline the Shaka music festival in Rishon Lezion on Thursday, cancelled suddenly on Sunday, citing the “security situation.”

The pair were set to be joined by a lineup of Israeli hip hop artists.

The sudden loss of the two top performers led to the cancellation of the entire festival. Ticket holders were informed that they would be able to secure refunds. Shocked fans expressed their disappointment on social media, with many asking “what security situation?”

Over the past several years, many musicians and other artists have come under pressure from the BDS movement to not perform in the Jewish state. It is unclear if the BDS movement played a role in this cancellation.

The performance was to be the first in Israel for Tyga and Fat Joe, both Grammy-nominated performers in the rap category. Last year’s Shaka Festival featured rapper Sean Paul, who performed for 15,000 attendees.
Muslim RA Resigns After ‘Physically Fight Zionists’ Remark
Stanford student Hamzeh Daoud seems to have deleted his Facebook now, but people who saw it in late July might’ve come across a post where he said: “I’m gonna physically fight Zionists on campus next year if someone comes at me with their ‘Israel is democracy bullshit’ 🙂 And after I abolish your ass I’ll go ahead and work every day for the rest of my life to abolish your petty ass ethnosupremacist settler-colonial state,” according to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Hamzeh, who’s a member of Stanford’s Students for Justice in Palestine chapter, had second thoughts four hours later and changed the phrase “physically fight Zionists” to “intellectually fight Zionists,” but that didn’t stop his original post from making its rounds on the interwebs, with the College Republicans and others criticizing it.

The student released a statement Friday saying he is a “third-generation Palestinian refugee” and that he bears “trans-generational trauma.” Trans-generational trauma? What does that even mean? This is starting to remind me of black Americans who demand reparations for injustices that, while absolutely horrible, they, themselves, have not suffered. No, sorry, collectivism isn’t a Western principle.

Anyways, Hamzeh goes on to say “I apologize from the bottom of my heart to everyone who was triggered by it. I recognize that I was projecting my own trauma onto others in a way that is never acceptable.” He’s apparently enrolling in “trauma-based therapy” at Stanford and says he’s resigning from his position as RA to focus on his schoolwork and also to think about the consequences of his post.


University revises textbook that blamed victims of the Holocaust
A controversial textbook for a University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill fitness course has been revised for this fall, university officials say.

In a statement, the university said the department of exercise and sport science worked with the publisher of “21st Century Fitness” to make “multiple edits to the content and length of the book.”

“These edits are based on student and department faculty feedback and are part of an ongoing curriculum review process by the Exercise and Sport Science Curriculum Committee,” the statement said. “Among other changes, the publisher has confirmed that references to the Holocaust and to cancer as ‘a disease of choice’ had already been removed from the fall 2018 edition.”

It drew scorn from some for its references to a theory by Holocaust survivor and Austrian psychotherapist Victor Frankl about concentration camps. About Frankl and his philosophy, the book said: “The people in the camps who did not tap into the strength that comes from recognizing their intrinsic worth succumbed to the brutality to which they were subjected.”

Last week, a Jewish human rights organization demanded that UNC drop the textbook. The Simon Wiesenthal Center issued a news release saying the book should be removed by UNC because it “insults the memory of Holocaust victims.”
IsraellyCool: Israel Haters Make Up Another Fake BDS Victory
Quds News Network is claiming yet another victory for BDS – the cancellation of a friendly soccer match between Ireland and Israel.

There’s just one problem with this – it is completely false.

For a start, there is no news outlet reporting this (no, I do not consider Quds News Network to be an actual legitimate news outlet).

Then there’s the fact the BDS movement itself never got the memo; their call for the Irish Football Association (IFA) to cancel the friendly is still in play, with no news on their site of any victory in this regard.

Did I also mention that the IFA itself has said it has no intention of cancelling the friendly?

How Holocaust experts want to help Zuckerberg solve Facebook’s denial dilemma
Holocaust experts want to meet with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg over the social network’s unwillingness to automatically remove anti-Semitic and Holocaust denial material.

The heads of organizations and experts involved in Holocaust and genocide education offered to meet with Zuckerberg and help raise Holocaust awareness within the Facebook community.

In late July, Zuckerberg said in an interview published online that he would not automatically remove Holocaust-denying posts from the social network he founded.

“Facebook must not allow complete and utter falsehoods about the Holocaust, and about the Jewish people, to go systematically unchecked,” the letter dated Tuesday to Zuckerberg says. “Virulent antisemitism is a proven pathway that leads from rhetorical hatred to actions of violence. Freedom of speech laws are not a reason to do nothing — inaction is always the opportunity for evil to flourish. All genocide starts with distortion of the truth and prejudice.”

The experts later say: “We offer you tangible, rapidly executable steps towards Facebook becoming part of the solution. We can deliver proven educational resources in multiple languages, ready for digital deployment with Facebook — important as you may wish to break the task down by different jurisdictions with different laws.”
Facebook: Farrakhan’s Anti-Semitic Conspiracy Theories Don’t Violate ‘Hate Speech’ Rules
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s official Facebook page is rife with anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and other hateful speech, which have not been censored by Facebook content monitors, a Daily Caller News Foundation review of the page reveals.

Videos posted to Farrakhan’s Facebook page show the Nation of Islam leader claiming that Jews are secretly controlling government agencies to suppress black Americans and blaming Jews for “weaponizing” marijuana with “chemicals” to “feminize” black men.

Neither of those videos violate Facebook’s rules prohibiting hate speech, a Facebook spokeswoman told The Daily Caller News Foundation in a phone interview Tuesday.

Another video that showed Farrakhan warning against interracial marriage — which he blames on “the enemy” in Hollywood — to keep the black race “from being any further mongrelized,” was originally ruled not to violate hate speech rules, according to the Facebook spokeswoman.
Gaza man jailed for assaulting Jew wearing kippah in Switzerland
A Palestinian man who assaulted a Jewish man wearing a kippah on a train in Switzerland was sentenced to four months in prison for assault, but was not convicted of a hate crime.

The assault occurred in February aboard a train near Lausanne, the German-language 20 Minuten news website reported Monday. It had not been reported in major Swiss media prior to this week.

The perpetrator, a 40-year-old man who was born in Gaza, identified only as Mohammed, threw a shirt in the face of the victim, identified as Israel. He stole the victim’s water bottle, book and kippah, throwing the latter in a trash bin. Mohammed, who has multiple drug-related convictions, also stole Israel’s watch, broke his glasses and hit the Jewish man all over his body.

Mohammed told Israel he’d like to slit his throat, according to witnesses.

Johanne Gurfinkiel, the secretary-general of the CICAD watchdog group on anti-Semitism in Switzerland, said the details of the case suggest that Mohammed singled out Israel for attack because he was visibly Jewish. Yet Mohammed’s conviction, handed down last month, does not reference a hate crime as an aggravated element in the assault.

The 20 Minuten report did not say whether Mohammed indicated his motivation for assaulting Israel.
Report: Berlin Harbors 20% of German Anti-Semitic Crimes
According to German police, anti-Semitic crime affects Berlin more than any other German state, Tagesspiegel reported Tuesday. The police report is based on preliminary findings regarding 80 anti-Jewish crimes committed in Berlin in the first half of 2018, compared with Bavaria which is in second place with 43 anti-Semitic offenses. Four of the 80 offenses in Berlin were violent.

There were 401 anti-Semitic incidents in the first six months of 2018 in Germany. Berlin, which is both the capital city and a state, experienced 20% of these.

According to police, the Berlin numbers went up in the second quarter of this year. From January to March, police recorded 26 anti-Semitic offenses in the city, and from April to June there were 54, including the four acts of violence. Most offenses, 62 in total, were committed by right-wing anti-Semites. In eight cases, the suspects were identified with “foreign ideology.” This is, of course, code for Muslims. Another three cases fell under “religious ideology,” meaning there was no way to deny that the perpetrators were Islamists. Three offenses were by leftsts. Four cases were not assigned an ideological source.

A total of 23 suspects were apprehended.
Neo-Nazi state senate candidate plans to establish 'antisemitic capital'
Patrick Little's Senate campaign against incumbent Diane Feinstein failed in April. Now Little is reportedly taking his message of antisemitism and white nationalism to North Idaho, where he claims he plans to establish a "regional capital" intended to fight "the nation-wrecking plans of leftists and their Jewish controllers who aim to ruin people forever."

Little espoused his message of hate and segregation via robocalls he allegedly left on the voicemails of residents of Sandpoint, Idaho. Playing in the background is The Rembrandts' hit 1995 single "I'll Be There for You," otherwise known as the theme song of sitcom "Friends."

"America has a Jewish problem," a chipper Little says to begin the call, audio of which was obtained by the Spokesman-Review. He goes on to announce his plans to make Sandpoint "one of my new regional capitals throughout the country" when he arrives in mid-August.

Little then says he is traveling around the nation to engage "with folks on the problems we face and how to solve them together as the extended family our European people are." He finishes by touting North Idaho's "pioneer spirit of hard work, family values, common sense and fighting off the nation-wrecking plans of leftists — and their Jewish controllers who aim to ruin our people forever."
Poland obtains archive of diplomats' efforts to rescue Jews
Poland has obtained a World War II-era archive that documents the efforts of Polish diplomats in Switzerland to get Jews out of Europe by issuing phony passports from Latin American countries.

The Culture Ministry and the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum announced Monday that Poland had obtained the archive after more than a year of negotiations with a private owner in Israel.

The ministry and the museum said 330 people are known to have survived the Holocaust as a result of having the faked passports, while 387 were killed despite having the false documents and the fate of 430 others has not been determined.

The wartime effort to rescue Jews was led by Poland's ambassador to Switzerland at the time, Aleksander Lados, and included three other Polish diplomats and two representatives of Jewish organizations. The archive is named for one of the Jewish representatives, Rabbi Chaim Eiss, who died of a heart attack in late 1943.

Poland's purchase of the archive comes as the Polish government works to emphasize the help some Poles provided Jews during the Nazi occupation of the country.
A smiling setting sun for Brian Wilson
It was only a little more than two years ago when famed Beach Boys founder and pop composer Brian Wilson made his Israel debut, performing the 1966 masterpiece Pet Sounds in its entirety at the Ra’anana Amphitheater.

Thanks to his stellar band, featuring co-Beach Boys mate Al Jardine and 1970s member Blondie Chaplin, it was a triumph. They covered up Wilson’s deficiencies at the piano and vocals with a gorgeous glossy backdrop of sound and harmony.

Tuesday night at the Charles Bronfman Auditorium in Tel Aviv, the 76-year-old Wilson seemed even frailer and less involved. Recovering from back surgery in May, he needed a walker and assistants to get on stage for a ‘greatest hits’ show. Looking distracted and disengaged, he sang lead on only about half the tunes, and you couldn’t really tell whether he was playing much behind the white baby grand piano.

And yet… the show was a blast. Wilson’s songbook of classics is astounding, and his 10-piece band led by his secret weapon – longtime musical director and keyboardist Darian Sahanaja - did it justice with authenticity and enthusiasm. The slack was picked up by the spry 75-year-old Jardine, who led renditions of “Little Deuce Coupe” and “Help Me Rhonda” and by Jardine’s son, Matthew, whose spot-on falsettos sparked each song, especially his lead vocals on one of Wilson’s finest, “Don’t Worry Baby.”
Suzanne Vega returns to Israel for two shows
American singer-songwriter Suzanne Vega will be returning to Israel next month for two unique shows - both accompanied by a string orchestra from the Ra'anana Symphonette.

Vega's first performance will be at the Tamar Festival at Masada on September 26. The long-running festival, held on the intermediary days of Sukkot, also features an extensive lineup of local talent, including Rita, Sarit Haddad, David Broza, Avraham Tal and many more.

The following day, Vega will take the stage at the Haifa Congress Center for a second show.

The folk singer, who rose to fame in the 1980s, has released nine studio albums. Her most famous songs include "Luka," "Tom's Diner" and "Left of Center."

Vega most recently performed in Israel in 2015, when she played two shows in Tel Aviv with the Israel Philharmonic.
The Islamic school that ensures its boys understand the Israeli point of view
Abdul, 15, on the Israel team, says his side had to work harder: “I told the team, swallow your pride, just do it. Even after hours and hours of research we thought Palestine had a stronger argument, so to find an argument for Israel and the Jews to have this thing was really difficult.

“But we did find it, we found small things to pick out and expand on, and we were very close to actually winning. I was more on the other side but now I’ve got a bit more understanding and think Israel does have a point. In this school especially we are trying to become Muslim scholars but we have to go out there and we need to be aware of what’s going on – this is Britain, we need to understand British values. All of this will help us understand tolerance, etc. If we are biased to one opinion by ignorance then it’s not fair. No matter if they are Jews or whatever, they are still human. We have to respect them.”

Earlier this year, Davies split his Lancaster Grammar students into two groups. One was taught the Israeli view, the other the Palestinian. Afterwards, they were surveyed on the Balfour declaration and if the British should have signed it. Their answers were influenced by what they had been taught. Almost 60% of those taught the Jewish side said the British should be praised, while almost 50% of those taught the Palestinian narrative said the British should be criticised.

After the Abrar lesson, just two boys say that they still believe Israel does not have a right to exist.

“Obviously you have to look at it with a sympathetic view when you are dealing with the Jewish part of things because they came out of the holocaust and needed a land of their own and Palestine did have a bit of space,” says Mohammed, 19.

“But what makes me say that Israel doesn’t have the right to exist is the fundamentals of what it was built on and how they deal with Palestine right now.” (h/t Zvi)

          Roman Catholic Churches - Église Saint-Maire - Avenches, VD, Switzerland      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
EN: The Roman Catholic church of Avenches stand just outside the Medieval city limits opposite the ancient Roman amphitheater. It was built in 1947-48 in a western Mediterranean style, otherwise not very common in this region. It is the parish church of a community of about 3000 Catholics living in eleven villages with a mostly evangelical-Reformed population. It works closely together with some parishes in the predominantly Roman Catholic neighboring canton of Fribourg. The church is edicated to Saint Marius, who was bishop here from 574 until 594.

Although now a small church of a minority, Avenches was once the seat of a bishop. At the end of the Roman empire and in the early Middle Ages there were several Catholic churches in town, maybe four. When Bishop Marius moved the residence from Avenches to Lausanne in the late 6th century, Avenches lost some of its importance. And in 1536, the country of the bishop of Lausanne was conquered by Bern and forced to join the Reformation. After that, there were no more Catholics in Avenches until the 19th century.

FR: L'église catholique d'Avenches se trouve juste en dehors des limites de la ville médiévale en face de l'ancien amphithéâtre romain. Il a été construit en 1947-48 dans un style méditerranéen occidental, sinon très commun dans cette région. C'est l'église paroissiale d'une communauté d'environ 3000 catholiques vivant dans onze villages avec une population majoritairement évangélique-réformée. La paroisse travaille en étroite collaboration avec quelques paroisses du canton de Fribourg, à majorité catholique romaine. L'église est édifiée à Saint Marius, qui fut évêque ici de 574 à 594.

Bien qu'étant une petite église minoritaire, Avenches était autrefois le siège d'un évêque. À la fin de l'empire romain et au début du Moyen Age, il y avait plusieurs églises catholiques en ville, peut-être quatre. Lorsque Saint-Maire a déménagé la résidence d'Avenches à Lausanne à la fin du 6ème siècle, Avenches a perdu de son importance. Et en 1536, le pays de l'évêque de Lausanne fut conquis par Berne et contraint de rejoindre la Réforme. Après cela, il n'y avait plus de catholiques à Avenches jusqu'au 19ème siècle.

Still some high temperatures across Central Europe, Southern Spain into the Mediterranean, near to 30C, locally exceeding 35 in parts of Italy, and up to around a hot 40C for some southern parts of Turkey. Cooler and fresher generally further north and west, although Finland, Southern Sweden and the Baltic States will see temperatures into the high 20s.

Friday Much of Portugal and Spain dry and sunny but with showers in the north and east and Balearics. Sunny spells for Corsica, Sardinia, Italy and the Adriatic but with a few showers, perhaps heavy in the north. Isolated showers for Greece with thunderstorms in the far northeast of Turkey, otherwise dry and sunny. Largely dry around Southeast Europe, towards the Balkan States but with thunderstorms again over Switzerland, extending into Austria and northeast into Poland. Dry and fairly sunny across Central and Southern France but with showers, some heavy, further north and into the Low Countries. Heavy, locally thundery, rain associated with a deepening low continues to move steadily north across Norway, Sweden and Northern Finland with areas further to the south and east around the Baltic also likely to catch some showers. Much of Germany will become dry, though. Little change temperature-wise across the south and east, peaks of 30C, locally exceeding 35C. Progressively cooler and fresher generally further north and west, although Finland, some southern parts of Sweden and the Baltic States will see temperatures well into the high 20s.

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2018-08-06 - Unknown odor blows through neighborhood in North Baton Rouge (Louisiana):

http://www.kxxv.com/story/38824908/strange-smell-reported-near-airline-prescott-no-gas-leak-found

Quote: "A portion of North Baton Rouge was blocked off due to multiple reports of a suspicious odor in the air Monday night. Reports of the odor began around 7:45 p.m. Monday evening. At 10:20 p.m., a spokesperson with the Baton Rouge Fire Department said the smell was dissipating, but response teams were unable to find the source. Entergy says crews searched in the area near Shelley Street and Evangeline Street, and while there was an odor in the air, it's not from gas."

2018-08-06 - Unknown rotten egg odor hits area near the coast in Onekawa (New Zealand):
http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12102567

Quote: "About a dozen Onekawa Industrial area businesses were evacuated this morning after reports of a gas leak in the area. Fire and Emergency in Napier were called just before 10.15am and three appliances went to the scene which centred around Niven St, Edmundsen St, Wakefield St and Thorn Place. Cordons were set up and traffic diverted while staff and occupants of buildings in the immediate area were evacuated, including a large number from the Quality Bakers in Niven St. Using gas detectors crews moved through the area but at the end of a detailed search of buildings and sites came up with nothing."

2018-08-06 - Insurers fleeing California and other western states as fires escalate:
http://www.cbsnews.com/news/california-wildfires-property-insurers-cancel-policies-because-of-risk/
http://twitter.com/CBSNews/status/1026668775070949376

Quote: "Residents of U.S. towns damaged by wildfires may need to prepare for another repercussion: insurers that decide to cancel policies because of increased risks from more frequent fires. Facing mounting losses, some property insurers are pulling back from selling policies in California and other western states where wildfire risk is elevated. In California alone, damages had mounted to at least $12 billion by early 2018, while the state's Carr fire likely added another $1.5 billion in insured losses."

http://fox40.com/2018/07/29/live-blog-mendocino-complex-fire/

Quote: "Two wildfires blazing in California, known as the Mendocino Complex fire, became the largest recorded in state history on Monday, crossing a grim milestone. The fire, in Colusa, Lake and Mendocino counties, has killed two people and burned almost 283,800 acres as of Monday. It has destroyed at least 143 structures, including 75 homes, according to Cal Fire officials. More than 9,000 structures remain under threat. The Mendocino complex fires, which encompass an area the size of Los Angeles, surpassed the Thomas wildfire in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, which burned 281,893 acres last year."

Quote: "We're looking at over 629,000 acres of ground and vegetation burned in California since January 1 of this year. Last year, same period of time, 223,000 acres..."

Note: So wildfires are burning at almost triple the rate of last year, and last year was itself a record-setting year. From the full hypothesis: "Probably the most noticeable effect will be fires and explosions sweeping across the planet."

          Making Switzerland a better place for birds      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
If you’re a crested tit in the woods, Switzerland is a great place to live. But if you’re a skylark you’re in trouble – mainly because of intense farming. The Swiss Ornithological Institute wants to improve habitats for all birds. “It’s too tidy here; we get rid of small stones, trees and hedges because we don’t like to ‘waste’ any land,” says Sophie Jaquier, a biologist at the Swiss Ornithological Institute. She’s referring to Switzerland’s limited space for settlements, industry and agriculture. In addition to reducing the living area for birds that nest near the ground, this means less breeding ground for insects – essential for the diets of most birds. The use of pesticides and also herbicides is making it worse. “Insects need these ‘weeds’,” points out Jaquier. And while Swiss woodland birds are doing well thanks to growing forests and deadwood, species that live in agricultural zones are losing out. “Skylarks, for example, breed on the ground, and they like medium-high, ...

Those Heavenly Wisps - Constance J. Hampton Lucinda van Noord is an international famous Seer and visionary. When she sees herself, by way of regression therapy, as the 21 year old quart-Jewish Lisa Voerman in a concentration camp during World War II, doubt begins to strike her. Lisa died after she gave birth to twins who fell into the hands of the experimental camp physician A. Messer. Lucinda decides to stop her grand sessions as a visionary and leaves for a holiday with her twin daughters to Scuol in Switzerland. There she meets three members of the wealthy von Ravensmünde family: André, the playboy and his sisters Cara and Marina. Her fifteen-year-old daughters plunge themselves into the jet-set of St. Moritz and Lucinda hesitantly follows: she has fallen in love with André. Her problem is that her former life in the Second World War and her current life as aSeer seem to blend more and more together.

          Event: Gilles Retsin: Bits and Pieces: Discrete Architecture      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Event Date: Dec 5, 2018; Event City: Los Angeles, CA, US

This lecture presents a body of work and thinking that is based on a computational understanding of the discrete part or bit – pieces that are as scalable, accessible and versatile as digital data. Gilles Retsin’s work proposes that a digital form of assembly, based on parts, contains the greatest promise for a complex, open-ended, adaptable architecture. This approach capitalises on the digital economy and automation, with the potential of the digital to democratise production and increase access. This lecture suggests that the digital not only has deep consequences for how we design and produce architecture, but also that it is first and foremost a new system of production with economic, social and political consequences that need to be understood - such as the global housing crisis and the impact of accelerated automation on labour.

Gilles Retsin is a London based architect and designer whose work is is interested in the impact of computation on the core principles of architecture – the bones rather than the skin. His practice works internationally and has developed numerous provocative proposals for buildings on a range of scales. His work has been acquired by the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and he has exhibited internationally in museums such as the Museum of Art and Design in New York among others. He is Program Director of the B.Pro Architectural Design (AD) M.Arch course at the Bartlett School of Architecture in London. Gilles Retsin studied in Belgium, Chile and the UK, where he obtained a masters from the Architectural Association’s in London. Prior to founding his own practice, he worked in Switzerland as an architect with Christian Kerez.

Bharat Book Bureau Provides the Trending Market Research Report on "Food Coating Market by Ingredient Type, Application, Equipment Type, Form, Mode of Operation, and Region - Global Forecast to 2023" under Food & Beverage Category. The report offers a collection of superior market research, market analysis, competitive intelligence and industry reports.Food Coating Market is projected to reach 5,936.3 USD Million by 2023 at a CAGR of 4.98% from 2018-2023. The food coating equipment and food coating ingredients markets are projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% and 5.8%, respectivelyThe food coating ingredients and equipment markets are estimated to be valued at USD 2.73 billion and USD 1.93 billion, respectively, in 2018 and are projected to reach a value of USD 3.62 billion and USD 2.31 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 5.8% and 3.7% respectively, from 2018 to 2023. The market is primarily driven by factors such as rising demand for frozen breaded meat products, seasoned veggie chips with specialty flavors, along with premium confectionery products enrobed with chocolate and growing demand for processed and convenience food. However, rising costs of production due to increasing energy & labor costs and the growing demand for organic and fresh food products are some factors which are expected to restrict the growth of the food coating equipment market in the long run.On the basis of application, meat & poultry is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the food coating market during the forecast periodBased on the application of food coating, the meat & poultry segment is projected to grow at the highest rate. The expected rise in production units in countries such as the US, a shift in the consumption patterns, and preference for premium and chocolate & bakery products along with rise in demand for frozen meat products, and rise in the number of quick-service restaurants in some developing countries of Asia such as India, Indonesia, and Thailand are supporting the growth of meat & poultry coating.The automatic segment is projected to grow at the highest rate for the food coating equipment market during the forecast periodOne of the driving factors for the increasing use of automated food coating equipment is its ability to provide accurate coating. Automation of equipment in the food coating industry contributes to accurate coating, quick & reliable production processes, optimum utilization of time, reduced labor costs, and controlled operations. With the incorporation of automatic machinery, food coating can be carried out for a large number of products with comparatively lesser manpower, since this equipment functions automatically.North America and Europe are estimated to account for the largest share of the food coating ingredients and food coating equipment market, respectively in 2018North America is expected to dominate the food coating ingredients market in 2018 and is projected to grow steadily over the next five years. The market for food coating ingredients in this region is driven by the flourishing food processing industry. Additionally, the rise in health issues such as obesity and heart ailments in the region has prompted people to focus on eating healthy products such as breakfast cereals for diet management, in response to which food coating ingredient manufacturers have introduced their products with low sugar content and absence of allergens. Such factors have provided a boost to food coating ingredient manufacturers in North America.Request a free sample copy of Food Coating Market Report @ https://www.bharatbook.com/MarketReports/Sample/Reports/1194281Break-up of Primaries:• By Company: Tier 1 – 20%, Tier 2 – 35%, and Tier 3 – 45%• By Designation: C-level – 25%, and Director-level - 35%, Others - 40%• By Region: North America – 15%, Europe –15%, Asia Pacific – 40%, and RoW – 30%The key players profiled in this report are as follows:• Marel (Iceland)• GEA Group (Germany)• Bühler AG (Switzerland)• JBT Corporation (US)• TNA Australia Pty Limited (Australia)• Clextral (France)• Dumoulin (France)• Spice Application Systems (UK)• Cargill (US)• Kerry Group (Iceland)• Tate & Lyle Plc (UK)• Newly Weds Foods (US)• PGP International (US)• Archer Daniels Midland Company (US)• Ingredion Incorporated (US)• Bowman Ingredients (UK).Research Coverage:The report segments the food coating market on the basis of ingredient type, ingredient form, application, equipment type, mode of operation, and region.

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2018-08-07 - Unknown rotten egg odor on two days blows through Kuna (Idaho):

http://kpic.com/news/offbeat/dispatch-multiple-calls-for-bad-smell-in-kuna
http://wow1043.com/what-is-that-stench-in-kuna/

Quote: "Intermountain Gas has received more than 100 calls reporting a gas odor in and around Kuna, according to the Kuna Fire Department. The cause of the odor has not been determined yet. The Kuna Fire Department first received reports of the gas odor at 6 a.m. Monday. Intermountain Gas investigated and found there were no breaches or leaks in their system. By 1 p.m. Monday, the smell had gone away, but reports started again around 3 a.m. Tuesday and lasted until 11 a.m."

Quote: "Intermountain Gas technicians have responded to roughly 100 calls about a natural gas-like odor."

Quote: "In a statement issued Wednesday afternoon, The L & R Group said results from a third-party tester to determine if its facility is the source of the smell have been inconclusive. The company also said: 'While our facility does produce odors under certain conditions, we have never had any complaints of smell outside a two-mile radius of our facility. Based on historical information it is unlikely that the smell at our facility is traveling as much as twenty miles, as reported by some.'"

Note: So some people wanna blame a wastewater pond, but independent testing has been unable to verify that, and the company who owns the pond thinks that it's unlikely any odor from their pond could travel 20 miles. So, back to rotten egg odor from unknown source...

2018-08-07 - Warming Earth causing plants, trees and soil to absorb less methane:
http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2018-08/asrc-wsi080118.php
http://phys.org/news/2018-08-wetter-soil-methane-gas-absorption.html

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/08/180806152021.htm
http://www.earth.com/news/climate-change-forests-methane/

Quote: "Trees, plants and soil play a vital role in absorbing and preventing many of the greenhouse gases responsible for global warming from entering the earth's atmosphere. But a new paper from researchers at the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York finds that the existing effects of global warming are decreasing the soil's ability to absorb methane gas--one of the major drivers of global temperature increases--and creating a positive feedback loop between the effects of global warming and the variables that cause it."

Note: And there's yet another self-reinforcing feedback. As the world warms, the plants, trees and soil absorb less methane, so more methane accumulates in the atmosphere, which causes more warming, which causes less methane to be absorbed AND causes more methane to be released, which causes more methane to accumulate in the atmosphere, etc, etc. This is only one of the degrading methane sinks. Another big methane sink involves hydroxyl radicals in the atmosphere, and the amount of hydroxyl radicals in the atmosphere is also in decline...

2018-08-07 - Atmospheric methane levels hit a peak of 3046 ppb:

Quote: "On the morning of August 6, 2018, mean global methane levels were as high as 1896 ppb at 293 mb. More importantly, peak levels that afternoon were as high as 3046 ppb, as illustrated by the image."

Note: Methane is a lighter-than-air gas, so it tends to accumulate in the upper atmosphere, and it's highly flammable. One has to expect that to have some effect on planes...

Quote: "A plane made an emergency landing at New York's Kennedy Airport after reports of smoke in the cockpit. Officials say United Airlines Flight 4697 from Washington to Providence, Rhode Island was diverted about 2 p.m. Tuesday. About 50 people were evacuated from the twin-engine Embraer ERJ-145 regional jet and bused to a terminal."

Note: This is the 132nd aircraft to smoke/burn/explode in 2018. In all of 2017, 116 planes came down smoking or burning or exploded, so we're already well past that count, with nearly five months to go in the year. The number of planes coming down smoking or burning is rising, even as the amount of flammable methane in the atmosphere is rising...

Quote: "The largest wildfire in California's recorded history expanded to almost 300,000 acres on Tuesday, postponing the start of the school year as ash choked the air and thousands of people remained driven from their homes. The Mendocino Complex, encompassing two fires lapping the northern and western shores of Clear Lake about 80 miles northwest of Sacramento, added 17,000 acres overnight to reach 290,000 acres, authorities said."

Quote: "The blaze, dubbed the Mendocino Complex, was reported 20 percent contained on Tuesday. Its rapid growth at the same time firefighters were battling more than a dozen other major blazes around the state fanned fears that 2018 could become the worst wildfire season in California history."

Still some hot weather but becoming cooler and fresher for many northern and western parts Thursday Much of Portugal and Spain dry but with thundery showers in the far north, drifting into the Balearics later. Sunny spells for Corsica, Sardinia and Italy showers starting to die out, whilst it will stay mostly dry over into the Adriatic and Croatia. Isolated showers in the north of Greece with thunderstorms for the north and east of Turkey, otherwise dry and sunny. Thunderstorms over Switzerland, extending into Austria but staying mostly dry with sunny spells towards central and southeastern parts of Europe. A large area of heavy rain and thunderstorms over the north and west of France will move steadily northeast, on into the Low Countries and then Denmark, Southern Norway and Sweden later. Rain or showers further to the north and west at first in Scandinavia, dying out. Thunderstorms develop in the north and west of Germany and Poland but many parts stay dry with sunshine. Still some high temperatures across Central Europe, Southern Spain into the Mediterranean, near to 30C, locally exceeding 35 in parts of Italy, and up to around a hot 40C for some southern parts of Turkey. Cooler and fresher generally further north and west, although Finland, Southern Sweden and the Baltic States will see temperatures into the high 20s.

Friday Much of Portugal and Spain dry and sunny but with showers in the north and east and Balearics.

Switzerland bans Audi A6, A7 cars

DF-Xinhua Report

The Swiss Federal Roads Office announced Wednesday that the new Audi A6 and A7 3.0-litre diesel cars have been refused authorization to drive in Switzerland due to tampering with their anti-pollution control systems.

   The vehicles are from Audi's C7 generation, which comply with the Euro 6 standard.

   The Federal Roads Office said in a statement posted on its website that the cars have been equipped with illicit devices that tamper with the purification of exhaust fumes.

   The emissions scandal involving German car makers first came to light in 2015 when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency accused Volkswagen of equipping 11 million of its diesel vehicles with software that falsifies the results of anti-pollution tests, the Swiss News Agency, SDA-ATS reported.

   These allowed the cars to conceal emissions of up to 40 times authorized levels.

   The Audi vehicles named by the roads' office will only be registered in Switzerland as new vehicles once they comply with pollution requirements, the office said.

   The ban only concerns Audi vehicles imported starting next week.

   "Vehicles already registered in Switzerland are not affected by the registration ban and may, therefore, continue to be driven or to be put on sale on the second-hand market," said the statement.

   The 2018 and 2019 models of the Audi A6 and A7 (C8 generation) are not affected.

Army helicopters ferry water for cows in sizzling Switzerland

DF-Xinhua Report

Despite sporadic overnight flash flooding in parts of Switzerland, there was little respite Tuesday as the Alpine country faces its driest summer on record, with mountain pastures shriveling and army helicopters being used to ferry water.

   Switzerland is also experiencing its lowest rainfall in nearly a century, said the private Swiss Mountain foundation.

   Since the start of weather records in 1864, there have been only three periods between April and July with less rainfall.

   An army-backed operation to transport water to livestock in summer pastures is underway in the mountainous canton of Vaud in western Switzerland, the Swiss News Agency, SDA-ATS reported Tuesday.

   Helicopters are taking water to cows grazing in the Jura Mountains and sub-Alpine pastures.

   The national meteorological office said cities are experiencing uncharacteristically daily high temperatures in the mid-30 degree Celsius range.

   The government announced on Monday temporary measures to ease the heatwave-related difficulties faced by many farmers experiencing the drying up of their herd reservoirs.

   Agriculture minister Johann Schneider Amman said the measures include easing customs tariffs on imported roughage such as hay and silo maize down to zero from 3 Swiss francs (3.02 U.S. dollars) for 100 kg.

   The drought has caused drought-affected farmers in parts of the country to dip into winter reserves of fodder or purchase it from other parts of the country, or abroad.

   Removing the tariff will compensate for a rise in import prices driven by the heatwave over much of Europe.

   The Swiss Mountain Aid foundation said Alpine farms are particularly affected by the heatwave as the soil dries up on the slopes under the scorching heat.

   Transporting water by tanker truck, or even by helicopter in the most remote areas, is costly.

   Dairy cows need as much as 100 liters a day in such high temperatures.

   Farmers cannot shoulder the burden alone, says the foundation, which has committed to covering about half of the total costs of water transportation to Alpine pastures.

   "As a result of water shortages, farms would be deprived of fodder for the winter months," said the foundation's project manager, Kurt Zgraggen.

How to Build a Unique Technology for Your Fintech Product with Python

Fintech is a maze. It’s a thrilling and extremely complex industry for software development. There are state level regulations, integrations with different services and institutions, bank API connections, etc. to deal with. Another challenge is the high level of trust from the end users required to run finance, mortgages, investments and such. These, in turn, require the highest level of security, functionality, and correspondence with requirements.

What I’m trying to say is that the more unique the software is, the higher it’s valued. Without a properly working and trustworthy software, any financial venture will die down and lose worth. People need financial technology that will last, and I’m going to tell you how we achieved this with Python/Django technological stack while developing fintech products. It’s especially pleasant to say after Python has become the world’s most popular coding language.

Fintech: The Importance of Being Unique

In the world of finance, there are two streams that still coexist. On one hand, there are the millennials who stride gloriously into the future while mastering contactless payments, using on-line banking and all kinds of digital financing services. In an effort to avoid old school bureaucracy, they build their lives in a way that no generation before them did.

On the other hand, there’s the good old traditional financing services. This is a hell of a machine, hundreds of years old, that you can’t stop that easily. Even if it acknowledges the effect that new technology has on finance, it still doesn’t see it as neither as a threat, nor as a worthy competitor.

An attitude like this is especially typical of the most developed countries, such as the G7, which have the most of the money. The most of the old money, I might add. As well as the most people who are ready to operate it and the most highly technological startups. However, the thing is, their financial system is so old and hard-shelled, that it’s not always ready to change.

Deloitte has proven this in their statistics for 2017 that shows exactly how G7 sees and uses financial technology as opposed to the rest of the world. Deloitte researchers note:

“Surprisingly, with regard to mobile payments, 40 percent of executives from the United States expect little to no impact to their industry. With the caveat that the sample size is relatively small, 7 out of the 17 US banks (41 percent) saw little to
no impact from mobile wallets and other payment technologies, vs. 14 out of 36
(37 percent) of the nonbanks.”

Meanwhile, developing countries have a number of black holes in the financial sector that allow space for growth. These black holes are slowly but surely being taken over by fintech. By doing so, it gives people in these countries more opportunities, like working with
developed countries and getting paid easily and securely. Fintech removes financial
borders, and that’s one of my favorite things about it.

Usage of emerging technologies: G7 vs rest of the world (ROW)

How to Build a Unique Technology for Your Fintech Product with Python

No matter how skeptical the G7 is towards fintech, technology continues changing finance. One of the reasons is that technology is more flexible and is able to adapt to new users’ needs, such as the needs and demands of the millennials. With their new habits, their high digital sensitivity, and digital presence, this generation feels the need to be productive every waking moment, can’t afford to waste time, travels a lot, and values financial freedom no matter where they are.

Confirming my thoughts, the Wall Street Journal, for example, says that the ease of payments attracts people that are comfortable with technology and have a busy lifestyle. Users of mobile payments mostly have higher education, work full time, are predominantly male, and are also very active financially. For instance, compared to nonusers of mobile financial apps, they are more likely to have bank accounts, retirement accounts, and/or own homes. Equally, they are no stranger to auto loans and mortgages.

Statistics that the WSJ uses in the article basically show that mobile payment users are more financially active, use a variety of financial products, and earn more than non-users. At the same time, they’re more careless with their expenses, get into debt, and even take money from their retirement accounts. This is why experts expect a whole new niche in fintech – simple tools that will help millennials manage their money better. Millennials who use mobile payments are reported to have a greater risk of financial distress and mismanagement, despite higher incomes and education levels.

How to Build a Unique Technology for Your Fintech Product with Python

In the era of digital disruption, finance has to be especially sensitive towards new customer demands. Will they use your service when it becomes more common and necessary? Can you create a product now that can grow and develop to serve millennials when they grow up and start earning big money? The same as the generation at which the current financial system is aimed. This is especially important when it comes to branches like mortgages, investments, and wealth management.

As I said above, I can’t stress enough how important it is to offer a unique technology that is custom tailored to fit customer needs. So far, it’s impossible to avoid integration with traditional financial and state institutions. You have to make sure your cooperation runs smoothly and that they deem you reliable enough to choose you as a partner; to choose your technology and not someone else’s, or worse, create a technology of their own.

We realized the importance of top-notch technology when Moneypark, formerly a start-up client of urs and now Switzerland’s largest technology-based mortgage intermediary, acquired Defferrard & Lanz and became part of Helvetia. All this occurred because their technological solution and business approach was the most convincing.

How Is Python Used In Finance & Fintech

So where do you get this technology robust enough to withstand stress of worldwide financial perturbations, but flexible enough to follow all the new changes and customers’ needs? We chose to use the Django framework within Python, and continue discovering its power. We’re not trying to say that Python is the savior and the silver bullet, but we do know for sure what advantages Python has for finance.

1. Python/Django stack takes you to market a lot quicker. It’s simple: this combo lets you build an MVP quickly, which increases your chances to find your product/market fit.

One of the advantages fintech has over traditional banking services is its ability to change quickly, adapt to customer demands, and offer additional services and improvements in accordance to the customers’ wishes. To do so, you have to be able to get to market quick, toughen up against real life problems, constantly improve, and grow. This is the only way fintech will be able to compete and/or collaborate with traditional banking and finance.

The technology must be flexible and offer solid ground for numerous additional services. Obviously an MVP is of importance, but the complexity of projects doesn’t always allow to develop it fast. However, the Python/Django framework combo takes into account the needs of an MVP and allows to save some time. They basically work like a Lego – you don’t need to develop small things like autorisation or user management tools from scratch. You just take whatever you need from the Python libraries (Nimpy, Scipy, Scikit-learn, Statsmodels, Pandas, Matplotlib, Seaborn, etc.) and build an MVP.

Another big advantage that Django gives you at the MVP stage is a simple admin panel or CRM – it’s built-in; you just have to set it up for your product. Of course, at the MVP stage, the product isn’t complete, but you can test and easily finish it, as it’s very flexible.

After the MVP is done, this tech stack allows to adapt parts of code. This means that after you validate the MVP, you can either easily change some code lines or even write new ones, if this is required for the product to function flawlessly.

Millennials are people who are used to living in a fast-paced world. They feel like they have to be productive every waking moment, and this is what they expect from everyone else and from the services they use. There’s no time for error. Maximum transparency and high-quality service are critical for them, and I don’t think they’ll be letting it go anytime soon.

Let’s say that no matter how much I love Uber, as soon as they make a mistake as little as searching for a driver for too long, I get very annoyed. I’m sure we all expect and deserve better than this. I can’t even begin to describe the panic that takes over people if heaven forbid, Slack crashes.

This is why customer development is so important – a whole generation depends on it. Consequently, the sooner you get your product to market, the quicker you collect feedback and the faster you’ll make improvements. Python programming in finance allows you to do this with your hands behind your back.

2. Python is the language of Mathematicians and Economists. Fintech obviously can’t exist without these two groups, and most of the time they use – wait for it – Python to calculate their algorithms and formulas. While R and Matlab are less common among economists, Python became the most useful programming language for finance, as well as the programming “lingua franca” of data science. Because economists use it to make their calculations, of course it makes them easier to integrate with a Python based product. However, the presence of and communication with the technical partner is nevertheless important because sometimes even pieces of code that are written in the same language are hard to integrate.

3. Python has simple syntax which is easier for collaboration. Becoming the “lingua franca”, in my opinion, was just a matter of time. Thanks to its simplicity and easy-to-understand syntax, Python is very legible and everyone can learn it. Python creator Guido van Rossum describes it as a “high-level programming language, and its core design philosophy is all about code readability and a syntax which allows programmers to express concepts in a few lines of code.”

Not only is it easy to understand for technical specialists, it is for clients as well. As you can imagine, people involved in the development process from both sides have different levels of technical understanding. With Python, engineers can explain the code much easier, and clients can better understand how the development is progressing.

As The Economist says about Python:

“The language’s two main advantages are its simplicity and flexibility. Its straightforward syntax and use of indented spaces make it easy to learn, read and share. Its avid practitioners, known as Pythonistas, have uploaded 145,000 custom-built software packages to an online repository. These cover everything from game development to astronomy, and can be installed and inserted into a Python program in a matter of seconds.”

Which brings us to the next point.

4. Python has open libraries, including those for API integration. Open libraries help develop the product and analyze large amounts of data in the shortest amounts of time, as you don’t have to build your tools from scratch. This can save a lot of time and money, which is especially valuable while building MVP.

As I mentioned, fintech products require a lot of integrations with third parties. Python libraries make integrating your product with other systems through different API a lot easier. In finance, API can help you to collect and analyze the required data about users, real estate, and organizations. For instance, in the UK, you can get people’s credit history by API, which is required to proceed further financial operations. In the online mortgage industry, you also check real estate data and you always need to verify someone’s identity, which is much easier to do with API. By using and combining different libraries/packages, you can get the data or filter it in one click without having to develop new tools for that.

Django Stars, for instance, use the Django Rest Framework to build APIs or to integrate with external ones, as well as Celery to queue or distribute tasks.

5.Python hype is real. Python will continue developing, giving access to more and more specialists,which is good because we’re guaranteed to have enough people to develop and maintain our products in the future. According to the HackerRank 2018 Developer Skills Report, Python is the second language coders are going to learn next and is among TOP-3 languages in financial services and other progressive industries.

How to Build a Unique Technology for Your Fintech Product with Python

“Python wins the heart of developers across all ages, according to our Love-Hate index. Python is also the most popular language that developers want to learn overall, and a significant share already knows it.” HackerRank

Python can be used for all kinds of purposes, from traditional ones like web development to cutting edge, like AI. It’s versatile – it has over 125,000 third-party Python libraries. It’s the go-to language for data analysis, which makes it attractive for non-technical fields like business, and the best programming language for financial analysis.

Again, I’m not trying to sell you Python because it’s the only language that can save the world. I’m only speaking from my own experience because I saw what wonders Python can do when applied within the Django Framework.

The world of fintech is demanding – your product has to be trustworthy, 150% secure, and functional. Adhering to state regulations, dealing with integration with services, institutions, and bank API connections should all be built to last to support the new generations of millennials who are taking over the future. To get to the top and be among the ones who are disrupting the financial market, you need to be unique, efficient, user-oriented, and open for the future. That’s what Python is about.

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.

The dovish overtone of the RBNZ statement is the most interesting element of night trade. NZD is the biggest loser between the majors with the stability of the rest of the cross. Data on inflation from China fell above forecasts.

USD / JPY initially raised to 110.70 but managed to make up for declines and return to 111. AUD / USD is slightly higher at 0.7440 under the pressure of demand passing through AUD / NZD. EUR / USD is sitting at 1.1610.

Inflation in China in July surprised in a positive 0.1 pp. PPI amounted to 4.6% and CPI to 2.1%. These may be the seeds of inflationary pressures, which are positive for the economy, although USD / CNH first grew after data to 6.84, finally to calm down at 6.82, close to the reference level from Wednesday. Chinese Shanghai Composite is growing today by 2.0%on speculation about government support for technology companies. Hopes for strengthening infrastructural expenditures that would support industrial companies are also growing.Japanese Nikkei 225 loses 0.1% after a surprising slump in June machine orders (-8.8% m / m versus expected -1.0%).

On Thursday, the 9th of August, the event calendar is light in important data releases, but the market participants should keep an eye on Unemployment Rate data from Switzerland, Housing starts and New Housing Price Index data from Canada and PPI data from the US.

EUR/USD analysis for 09/08/2018:

Nevertheless, the momentum remains close to the neutral levels and the market conditions are now close to becoming overbought as well. The nearest technical resistance is seen at the level of .11627 and only if this level is violated, then the price might rally higher towards the level of 1.1719. The last support for bulls is seen at the level of 1.1774.

Lawyers for Ramadan had requested his release last month after unsuccessfully trying to have the charges dropped over discrepancies in testimony given by one of the women.

Ramadan, who took leave from his post at Oxford University after the allegations surfaced, has also complained that his imprisonment has made it more difficult for him to receive treatment for multiple sclerosis.

But the appeals court upheld his detention on Wednesday, considering Ramadan, who holds Swiss citizenship, is a flight risk despite his offer to surrender his passport and post 300,000 euros (RM1.41 million) in bail.

Investigative magistrates had already denied several requests for his release.

Ramadan, whose grandfather founded Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood movement, has been held since February on charges that he raped two women in France in two separate incidents.

His accusers came forward in October in the wake of the "Me Too" campaign which began after several women accused Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, prompting women worldwide to share accounts about sexual attack and harassment.

Ramadan, a married father of four who is one of European Islam's best-known figures, has denied any sexual relations with the two women, saying he met with each of them only once and in public places.

He has denounced the accusations as part of a smear campaign by his critics.

His first accuser, Henda Ayari, who was questioned by judges last month in Ramadan's presence, had originally said that he raped her at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Paris on May 26, 2012.

But investigators later determined she was attending her brother-in-law's wedding that day in Rouen, northern France.

Ayari subsequently admitted she could not remember the exact date.

On September 18, Ramadan will be questioned in the presence of his second accuser, a disabled woman identified as "Christelle" who claims he raped and beat her in a hotel in the southeastern city of Lyon in 2009.

French investigators are also looking into rape claims made by a third woman with whom he has admitted to having had an affair.

Those allegations have not yet let to charges.

In Switzerland, a Swiss woman has also filed a complaint against Ramadan. — AFP

The continually increasing costs of drug discovery and the need for technically advanced diagnostic assays/kits compel pharmaceutical companies to focus on developing drugs with companion diagnostic tests. Developing drugs along with companion diagnostic tests helps companies speed up the drug approval process. This is because companion diagnostics quickly identifies patients who will benefit from the drug, which is a guarantee of the efficacy of the drug. Companion diagnostics also help pharmaceutical companies by reducing the cost of R&D and increasing their revenues.

Owing to these advantages of companion diagnostics in drug approval processes, an increasing number of pharmaceutical companies have entered into partnerships and collaborations with different companion diagnostic companies to develop and commercialize companion diagnostics tests for their drugs.

Target Audience:

Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies
Diagnostic manufacturers
Research laboratories and academic institutes
Research and development (R&D) companies
Clinical research organizations (CROs)

Attack on the office of the architects who are drawing up the plans for the future camp for undocumented migrants at Grand-Saconnex No federal camp at Grand-Saconnex !

Camps for undocumented migrants are spreading inside and outside Europe. In Switzerland, 20 new federal centres for people seeking asylum are being built. This euphemism should not hide the character of their management, control and isolation that is on the increase.

At Grand-Saconnex, near Geneva, a complex of this kind is being planned right now (federal camp, police, border guards, international police). In drawing up its plans, the architects’ office « Berrel Berrel Kreutler » of Basel and Zurich is part of this new regime. Its architecture of an exuberant imagination is actually part of the architecture of the camps in Europe – a cold, brutal restrained universe –  in isolation and cut off from others. These are repressive ideas poured into concrete that are springing up everywhere today. Last week, we confronted this architectural firm with its responsibilities by breaking its windows and tagging slogans on its façade.

          Bodensee YC Wins Youth SAILING Champions League      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
J/70 Youth SAILING Champions League- Travemunde, Germany(Travemunde, Germany)- The Youth SAILING Champions League was the latest innovation to be launched out of the successful SAILING Champions League format, and eighteen crews from eight nations raced each other in Travemünde, Germany, from 27 to 29 July. The first-ever league competition exclusively for sailors from 16 to 23 years old at Travemünde Week attracted prestigious yacht clubs from Austria, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Switzerland.

Some of the yacht clubs were already well-versed in the short-course windward-leeward style of racing the fleet of J/70 sportsboats. The Royal Danish Yacht Club (Kongelig Dansk Yachtklub) recently won the inaugural event in the Women’s SAILING Champions League at Kiel Week, in addition to also leading the overall standings at this stage of the Danish National Sailing League 2018.

Catharina Sandman, one of 17 female sailors competing in Travemünde, from the Finnish entry Nyländska Jaktklubben said, “Our team consists of two girls and three boys and our background is mostly in dinghies such as the Optimist, Laser, 29er and 49er. We have all been sailing together since we were kids mostly competing against each other so we are really excited to finally team up and join forces. We are very much looking forward to the first Youth SAILING Champions League and we are expecting tough competition with great spirit.”

J/70 Youth SAILING Champions League- Travemunde, GermanyAfter three days of intense competition and a nail-biting four-boat finale, it was the Bodensee Yacht Club Uberlingen from Germany’s Lake Constance that won the first ever event in the Youth SAILING Champions League after a stellar performance in Travemunde. Kongelig Dansk Yachtklub from Denmark was the runner-up ahead of fellow Danish team from Roskilde Sejlklub in third place.

Bodensee YC’s young crew consisted of helmsman Konstantin Steidle, Alexandra Lauber, Patrick Hasse and Jonathan Koch.  The team went into the finale as the third-ranked club, but secured the overall win.

Helmsman Konstantin Steidle explained, “The last race was really close and we are just happy to have won! It’s amazing, but we haven’t realized it so far. We sailed at our best in the final races. It was a tough competition, especially the Danish teams did a great job, as well.”

Crew Jonathan Koch commented on the new Finals format, “We were very nervous about the final races, but it was a lot of fun. It’s just all to zero before the races and every team can win. It’s a great idea.”

For the leading group, the final day was all about making sure you had done enough to make it through to the four-boat finale. After twelve flights with 36 races, the final was a battle Denmark vs. Germany: the Kongelig Dansk Yachtklub (KDY) and Roskilde Sejlklub from Denmark against Bodensee Yacht Club Uberlingen (BYCUe) and Lindauer Segler Club from Germany.

The new Finals format means that your overall position from Qualifying is taken into the Final Series. So as winner of the Qualifying Series, KDY carried through a first place and hence already one race win. Whichever of the four clubs secures two race wins would become the overall champion.

J/70 Youth SAILING ChampionsIn the first final race, BYCU won, putting them level with KDY, the winner of Qualifying. The other two yacht clubs were really starting to feel the heat, desperately needing a win in the next race. In final race 2, BYCU earned her second race win, giving the young crew from Germany the overall victory.

Oliver Schwall, founder and co-organizer of the SAILING Champions League said, “The experiment with the four-boat Finale was a great way to finish off the regatta. It keeps the interest and excitement for much longer, because whoever wins the last race becomes the overall winner. How often do you see that in sailing? It will be interesting to see if other areas of the sport pick up on this idea. We’re proud to have been the ones to pioneer it here in Travemunde at the first ever Youth SAILING Champions League.”

J/70 Youth SAILING Champions League interviewThe atmosphere among the eighteen clubs from eight nations was friendly, respectful and exemplary for other events. “The sportsmanship you showed during the event was outstanding and set the benchmark for sailing worldwide,” added Oliver Schwall at the prize giving ceremony. “This weekend has been an important step forward for the League concept, two big experiments confirmed as a success. Innovation is risky, but we had a good feeling about introducing a Youth SAILING Champions League, and actually, it has gone much better than I ever imagined. And with around 20% of the sailors being female, that created a fun atmosphere. It would be great see even more girls competing here in future events.”

Over the three days, the clubs experienced all kinds of wind conditions: from Freaky Friday, with the wind averaging 17 knots and gusting quite a bit more at times with big waves – it was a day to hang on to your hats – to lighter airs on Saturday and Sunday, putting a greater emphasis on tactics.

          Swiss plans for EU treaty in tatters as labour boycotts talks       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Switzerland's plan to forge a new treaty cementing ties with the European Union has hit the rocks after the normally pro-Europe centre left joined the far right in resisting a deal that Swiss labour unions say might undermine wages and working conditions. For the SGB union federation allied with the centre-left Social Democrats (SP), Bern's efforts to explore tweaking Switzerland's strict rules that protect Europe's highest wages were a step too far towards the treaty demands of Brussels. The far-right Swiss People's Party (SVP) also opposes a treaty that it sees as infringing Swiss sovereignty. So political support for an accord - lukewarm to start with - now appears so low as to spell the treaty's doom. The SVP is the largest party in the Swiss parliament and the SP is second. Ties between the EU and non-member Switzerland are now governed by more than 100 separate agreements. Brussels wants to supersede them with a single treaty, to provide a better platform to settle disputes and to ensure that Switzerland adopts changes to the rules of the single market. But some Swiss worry that a treaty might make it easier for employers to import EU workers and undercut Swiss...

          Now a Nearly $1 Billion Blockchain, Tezos Is Slowly Building Up Its Security      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The number of Tezos bakers is on the rise.

The protocol's term for a validator (its equivalent of bitcoin's miners), bakers are crucial to ensuring the nascent network's security. And that's all the more necessary given the value of the funds at stake.

Sinceraising $232 million in 2017, the protocol has hada very bumpy path to getting off the ground. Once live, though, it's become a top 20 blockchain by market capitalization, with a valuation consistently above $1 billion. Furthermore, there's been little out of the ordinary happening on the new blockchain.

Watching the amount of tokens staked to validate and the number of people taking part is probably the best way early on to assess the stability of the new network.

"I've been particularly impressed with the role the community has played in this process," Mike Reinhart of Obsidian Systems, which is building software for bakers, told CoinDesk in an email.

So far, it's been a smooth increase in bakers overall.

There are 108 bakers working on Tezos, as of this writing, besides the nodes run by the Tezos Foundation, according to TzScan.io, a block explorer for the protocol. At launch, all validation was run by the Tezos Foundation, butthat opened up with the seventh cycle (each cycle runs roughly every three days).

This is only the third week that the protocol has been operational. It's difficult to draw any big conclusions from either the limited growth or the limited attrition so far.

But the number seems to be growing as services come along to make it easier for holders of XTZ to participate. It takes 10,000 XTZ to serve as a baker (what the creators call a "roll"), plus a little technical know-how and a good internet connection.

At current prices, that's roughly $15,000 in cryptocurrency, but if the holder has a long position in tezos, then baking gives them a way to earn additional income while they sit on their tokens.

The number of rolls staked for baking has been increasing steadily as well, helped in part by the growth in delegation services. For holders that don't have $15,000 in cryptocurrency to dedicate to baking, the protocol also allows for users to delegate their tokens to a service in order to earn rewards. TzScan lists 36 companies that offer baking services so far.

It also shows three bakers that have already dropped out of providing delegation services: TZ Baker, Tezos MX and, most recently, XTEZ.

Fear of a centralized protocol

Still, two bakers on the platform represent about 20 percent of all the staked XTZ.

On the other hand, the foundation's nodes have already dropped to less than 50 percent of the total network. In the current cycle, the other 107 bakers make up 32.8 percent of the xtz staked for validation.

However, due to the way delegation on Tezos works, there's a delay from when a user decides to delegate tokens and when they really start working. Tzscan makes it possible to look several cycles ahead, and five cycles down the road , at cycle 17, (about 15 days away) those large delegation services are losing market share.

"First, they've shown a strong inclination to bake themselves: 46 percent (202/435) of all potential bakers in cycle 17 have only one-to-two rolls," Obsidian's Reinhart told CoinDesk.

Obsidian Systems makes secure software for secure baking, with support from the Tezos Foundation . It's currently command line only software, but a graphical user interface is in the works.

It's not the only member of the community to do so. Stephen Andrews has also built BakeChain , free software for windows computers available on Github.

Nevertheless, there are those who suspect the current architecture will tend toward centralization. Meltem Demirors of CoinShares, has critiqued the concentration of xtz among the very largest holders.

"There are a number of new services springing up, but we see the trend moving towards consolidation which is concerning," Demirors, who is a partner with a delegation service called Tezzigator, told CoinDesk.

Delegation ain't easy

"What we're seeing is people beginning to grasp the real implications of being an aggregator of proxy votes it's expensive and only works at scale," Demirors argued.

The delegates that have dropped out haven't provided a lot of visibility into their reasoning, but one company providing the service offered its perspective on the challenges of the business.

Awa Sun Yin of Switzerland-based Cryptium Labs has 47 rolls in its baking node, as of this writing. Yin identified three categories of challenges faced by a new delegation service, not all of which might be obvious out the outset. She broke them down into legal, infrastructure and development categories.

Not every new delegator might immediately realize that it's better to establish a legal entity. Once they have, that might persuade some to pull out.

Here in the early days of Tezos, she also pointed out that there's a lot of software updates to the protocol coming quickly that delegation services have to keep up with. Couple this with the fact that there aren't enough open source tools to automate all processes that could be automated for a delegator yet.

"The biggest struggle with maintaining the baking infrastructure is related to software upgrades," she wrote. "These releases are hard to foresee and sometimes the releases are critical, as they might have patched a security vulnerability."

In other words, it's just not as easy as setting up some code on a computer and letting it run.

That said, she added:

"As the technology has been recently launched, there is a lot of room for both development and community contributions. With time, and the right participation, it will get much better."

          How to return one billion dollars stolen from the people of Uzbekistan       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The saga of Gulnara Karimova’s ill-gotten and ill-fated assets – frozen in a number of mostly European jurisdictions – may soon come to an end.

This house, the Château de Groussay in Montfort-l'Amaury, France, is owned by a close associate of Gulnara Karimova, Bekhzod Akmedov. Source: Wikipedia. This story began in 2012, when two associates of Gulnara Karimova, the daughter of Uzbek president Islam Karimov, tried, apparently on her order, to conduct a transaction involving an account at Lombard Odier bank in Geneva, Switzerland. Shokhrukh Sabirov and Alisher Ergashev were later arrested by the Swiss police on suspicion of money laundering.

This prompted criminal investigations and forfeiture cases targeting assets belonging to Karimova, who ended her extraordinary career as a powerful oligarch and socialite with house arrest in February 2014. She later found herself in prison after being convicted for extortion and embezzlement in 2015. The assets in question are being pursued by a number of jurisdictions, including, apart from Switzerland, Sweden, the United States and The Netherlands. In 2015, the US Department of Justice filed a civil case to forfeit $850 million of cash deposited in Swiss, Irish, Belgian and Luxembourg bank accounts registered in the name of Gulnara’s associates, alongside charging telecoms international Vimpelcom $795 million as a penalty for alleged bribery in Gulnara Karimova-related case. The total amount of Karimova’s assets seems to be even larger. In Switzerland alone, $700 million has been frozen and is being targeted by the Federal Prosecutor's Office (BA) of Switzerland.

Indeed, the Swiss authorities are about to confiscate these assets. On 22 May, the BA issued two penal orders leading to the confiscation of Karimova’s assets. Karimova’s lawyers have appealed the decision. If this confiscation process is completed, the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs will start negotiations with the Uzbek government over the repatriation of these assets. In principle, the decision to return them has already been made by the Swiss government.

On the one hand, this looks like the correct decision. A number of other parties are also after this money, such as some creditors of Zeromax GmbH, a company registered in the Swiss offshore zone Zug and whose beneficial owner is believed to have been Gulnara Karimova. Before going bankrupt in October 2010, Zeromax GmbH had aggressively invested in one sector of Uzbekistan’s economy after another – apparently with the support from the country’s top leadership, but to the discontent of other big players among Uzbekistan’s political and business elite. The sudden and mysterious bankruptcy of this company left creditors without compensation for their investments.

“Responsible” repatriation here means that asset return should provide a remedy to the victims of corruption, i.e. the whole population of Uzbekistan

On the other hand, a number of Uzbek civil society activists are concerned that the Swiss may return the assets without sound preconditions and, in the past few years, have advocated for responsible repatriation. “Responsible” repatriation here means that asset return should provide a remedy to the victims of corruption, i.e. the whole population of Uzbekistan. They argued that the assets should not be handed over to the government of Uzbekistan, as some top officials have avoided accountability for complicity in the Gulnara Karimova-driven corruption case.

Gulnara Karimova. Photo CC BY-SA 3.0: Timir01 / Wikipedia. Some rights reserved. In light of the pending confiscation of Gulnara Karimova’s assets by the Swiss authorities, the same group of Uzbek activists has put forward a set of principles that should guide the repatriation of assets to Uzbekistan.

The main principle should be to consider repatriation in the context of the fight against corruption at the national and global levels. If the asset return does not contribute to this fight, then the asset-returning state (in this case, Switzerland) should be held responsible for perpetuating corruption in the asset-receiving state (Uzbekistan).

A notorious example of irresponsible asset return has been Switzerland’s 2012 transfer of $48 million to Kazakhstan – a move that has been criticised for supporting that country’s repressive and kleptocratic regime. This is not the kind of deal Uzbek activists want to see in the case of their country’s stolen assets.

Compared to previous stages of their campaign, there is some novelty in the Uzbek activists’ proposed principles, which reflect the new realities in Uzbekistan, especially President Shavkat Mirziyoev’s commitment to reform the government and its policies.

Thus, the activists call for the assets to be used as an incentive for core anti-corruption reforms, the progress of which is still very weak to date. The activists believe that such use of returned assets would act as a genuine remedy for victims of corruption and serve their best interest in the long run. If implemented consistently, the reforms would guarantee that the rights and welfare of the general population would be less negatively affected by government corruption.

The activists argue that before the assets are returned, the Government of Uzbekistan should provide concrete proofs that the institutional driving factors which led to large scale bribery in the telecom sector are being addressed. They identify five such areas where reforms should be implemented, before the Swiss government transfer the assets, namely (1) transparency of tendering process and corporate registry; (2) integrity of civil service abiding by law and not by personal loyalty; (3) fair trial and due process; (4) transparency of public finance; and (5) an independent anti-corruption agency. If implemented these reforms would have positive impact far beyond the telecom industry, as every sectors of the state and economy are affected by the same problem.

These reforms would be a significant step towards establishing the standards of good governance. They would give sufficient guarantees that huge scale bribery in Uzbekistan’s telecom sector would not be repeated, and that the returned assets would not be stolen all over again.

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

          How to return one billion dollars stolen from the people of Uzbekistan       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The saga of Gulnara Karimova’s ill-gotten and ill-fated assets – frozen in a number of mostly European jurisdictions – may soon come to an end.

This house, the Château de Groussay in Montfort-l'Amaury, France, is owned by a close associate of Gulnara Karimova, Bekhzod Akmedov. Source: Wikipedia. This story began in 2012, when two associates of Gulnara Karimova, the daughter of Uzbek president Islam Karimov, tried, apparently on her order, to conduct a transaction involving an account at Lombard Odier bank in Geneva, Switzerland. Shokhrukh Sabirov and Alisher Ergashev were later arrested by the Swiss police on suspicion of money laundering.

This prompted criminal investigations and forfeiture cases targeting assets belonging to Karimova, who ended her extraordinary career as a powerful oligarch and socialite with house arrest in February 2014. She later found herself in prison after being convicted for extortion and embezzlement in 2015. The assets in question are being pursued by a number of jurisdictions, including, apart from Switzerland, Sweden, the United States and The Netherlands. In 2015, the US Department of Justice filed a civil case to forfeit $850 million of cash deposited in Swiss, Irish, Belgian and Luxembourg bank accounts registered in the name of Gulnara’s associates, alongside charging telecoms international Vimpelcom $795 million as a penalty for alleged bribery in Gulnara Karimova-related case. The total amount of Karimova’s assets seems to be even larger. In Switzerland alone, $700 million has been frozen and is being targeted by the Federal Prosecutor's Office (BA) of Switzerland.

Indeed, the Swiss authorities are about to confiscate these assets. On 22 May, the BA issued two penal orders leading to the confiscation of Karimova’s assets. Karimova’s lawyers have appealed the decision. If this confiscation process is completed, the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs will start negotiations with the Uzbek government over the repatriation of these assets. In principle, the decision to return them has already been made by the Swiss government.

On the one hand, this looks like the correct decision. A number of other parties are also after this money, such as some creditors of Zeromax GmbH, a company registered in the Swiss offshore zone Zug and whose beneficial owner is believed to have been Gulnara Karimova. Before going bankrupt in October 2010, Zeromax GmbH had aggressively invested in one sector of Uzbekistan’s economy after another – apparently with the support from the country’s top leadership, but to the discontent of other big players among Uzbekistan’s political and business elite. The sudden and mysterious bankruptcy of this company left creditors without compensation for their investments.

“Responsible” repatriation here means that asset return should provide a remedy to the victims of corruption, i.e. the whole population of Uzbekistan

On the other hand, a number of Uzbek civil society activists are concerned that the Swiss may return the assets without sound preconditions and, in the past few years, have advocated for responsible repatriation. “Responsible” repatriation here means that asset return should provide a remedy to the victims of corruption, i.e. the whole population of Uzbekistan. They argued that the assets should not be handed over to the government of Uzbekistan, as some top officials have avoided accountability for complicity in the Gulnara Karimova-driven corruption case.

Gulnara Karimova. Photo CC BY-SA 3.0: Timir01 / Wikipedia. Some rights reserved. In light of the pending confiscation of Gulnara Karimova’s assets by the Swiss authorities, the same group of Uzbek activists has put forward a set of principles that should guide the repatriation of assets to Uzbekistan.

The main principle should be to consider repatriation in the context of the fight against corruption at the national and global levels. If the asset return does not contribute to this fight, then the asset-returning state (in this case, Switzerland) should be held responsible for perpetuating corruption in the asset-receiving state (Uzbekistan).

A notorious example of irresponsible asset return has been Switzerland’s 2012 transfer of $48 million to Kazakhstan – a move that has been criticised for supporting that country’s repressive and kleptocratic regime. This is not the kind of deal Uzbek activists want to see in the case of their country’s stolen assets.

Compared to previous stages of their campaign, there is some novelty in the Uzbek activists’ proposed principles, which reflect the new realities in Uzbekistan, especially President Shavkat Mirziyoev’s commitment to reform the government and its policies.

Thus, the activists call for the assets to be used as an incentive for core anti-corruption reforms, the progress of which is still very weak to date. The activists believe that such use of returned assets would act as a genuine remedy for victims of corruption and serve their best interest in the long run. If implemented consistently, the reforms would guarantee that the rights and welfare of the general population would be less negatively affected by government corruption.

The activists argue that before the assets are returned, the Government of Uzbekistan should provide concrete proofs that the institutional driving factors which led to large scale bribery in the telecom sector are being addressed. They identify five such areas where reforms should be implemented, before the Swiss government transfer the assets, namely (1) transparency of tendering process and corporate registry; (2) integrity of civil service abiding by law and not by personal loyalty; (3) fair trial and due process; (4) transparency of public finance; and (5) an independent anti-corruption agency. If implemented these reforms would have positive impact far beyond the telecom industry, as every sectors of the state and economy are affected by the same problem.

These reforms would be a significant step towards establishing the standards of good governance. They would give sufficient guarantees that huge scale bribery in Uzbekistan’s telecom sector would not be repeated, and that the returned assets would not be stolen all over again.

          YouTube flagging wars: warning on my video about White Supremacist serpent seed theorists      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Due to the video I posted about my book Cain as Serpent Seed of Satan, vol. IV, YouTube wrote me the following, “We believe in the principles of free speech, even when that speech is unpopular or potentially offensive to some viewers” about which I will say ROFL!!!
They followed up with:
“However, YouTube doesn't allow hate speech or content that promotes or incites violence. In some cases, flagged videos that do not clearly breach the Community Guidelines but whose content is potentially controversial or offensive may remain up, but with some features disabled.”

Also:
“Your video will be shown after a warning message. In addition, certain features such as comments, sharing, thumbs up, and suggested videos have been disabled. Your video is also ineligible for monetization.”

So no, you cannot even comment on the video with statements such as—oh, I don’t know—this video contains absolutely ZERO hate speech or content that promotes or incites violence.

They also blocked it in the following countries:
“Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Cyprus, Czechia, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Spain, Finland, France, United Kingdom, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Greece, Croatia, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Latvia, Martinique, Malta, New Caledonia, Netherlands, French Polynesia, Poland, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, Portugal, Reunion, Romania, Sweden, Slovenia, Slovakia, French Southern Territories, Wallis and Futuna, Mayotte.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Jesus…was not a Jew but rather of
the white Adamic race)…Satan probably
appeared to Eve as a handsome white
god…the white race is a race of gods…”
—Willie Martin

Cain as Serpent Seed of Satan 4.jpg

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Within my appeal, I wanted to write:
“Good day, please be aware that many people use your alter system in order to take down videos/channels they do not personally like. Also, when you rely on impersonal algorithms which flag videos based on key words, errors will occur that this is one such a case. I received a message that stated ‘YouTube doesn't allow hate speech or content that promotes or incites violence.’ There is absolutely zero promotion or incitation of violence in my video. In fact, the video is specifically against racism, White supremacism, etc. Thus, please remove the misplaced warning message. Moreover, it has been blocked in multiple countries so please remove this block.”

I wanted to but could not since the appeal section only allows a tweet sized sentence. In any case, I elucidated that the video contains no such thing.

In about one minute, the reply was:
“Thank you for submitting your video appeal to YouTube. After re-reviewing your video New book on White Supremacist who hold to the Cain as Serpent Seed of Satan theory, we've decided to leave the restrictions in place on your video.
Our commitment to you
We take your videos and the YouTube community feedback seriously. We provide all uploaders with an option to appeal any removal or restriction of their videos. When an appeal is submitted to us, we work quickly to review the content and take appropriate action, including restoring videos that have been mistakenly removed.”

So now, when you go to watch the video, you will first see:
“The following content has been identified by the YouTube community as inappropriate or offensive to some audiences” with the options of “Continue” or “Cancel” and within it, you will see:
“Certain features have been disabled for this video
In response to user reports, we have disabled some features, such as comments, sharing, and suggested videos, because this video contains content that may be inappropriate or offensive to some audiences.”

Once you appeal, you are basically simply cut off from contacting YouTube (unless you are some sort of high money earner which I am utterly not) so I found a way to tell Google that I had an issue:
“I am a Jew who made a video AGAINST White supremacist racism and now YT is attacking me by claiming that my video contains ‘hate speech or content that promotes or incites violence,’ they rejected my appeal and thus, leaving me no way to defend myself. I would ask how they sleep at night but I imagine that the answer is that they sleep on a gigantic pile of money.”

Yes, it would take—my oh, my—all of two mouse clicks away from YouTube to find out that I am a Jew.

But perhaps I am misreading the whole thing: the video may have been flagged by White supremacist racists who wanted to keep me from exposing their racism—but I will not hold my breath at this option.

滥用 Microsoft Windows 内置程序来传播恶意软件

去年, 我们观察到滥用平台内置功能进行攻击的恶意活动有所增加, 而整个业界普遍都会在各自平台中内置一些功能. 我们发布的报告 2018年恶意软件回顾 中, 着重阐述了滥用Microsoft功能(如OLE和DDE)传播恶意软件的相关内容. 从去年开始, 随着黑客们开始利用更多类型的平台内置功能并在一个活动中组合使用多种技术, 这种趋势一直在持续。

攻击者滥用Microsoft windows内置程序进行网络钓鱼活动, 是因为相对于附加或嵌入恶意软件, 这种战术更难以识别和检测. 其原因就在于, 在许多情况下, 即使被恶意软件利用, 这些内置程序的实际运行方式与其原本设计的运行方式, 依然完全相同. 我们当前了解到的一些Windows系统种被滥用的内置程序包括Certutil, Schtasks, Bitsadmin和MpCmdRun。

Certutil Certutil是一个简单的命令行工具, 早在2015年就开始被黑客们利用了[2], 今年3月份爆发的大规模僵尸软件Dreambot行动中也露过脸[1]. Certutil可以用来在中间人攻击(MITM)中轻松的安装假证书, 以及下载并解码以base64或十六进制编码的伪装成证书的的文件. 这一点尤为重要, 因为防火墙规则一般被可执行文件或恶意二进制文件触发, 不太可能把看起来是被编码的证书文件识别为恶意软件[3].

图3: 使用Certutil解码下载的证书文件
滥用 Microsoft Windows 内置程序来传播恶意软件
图4: 使用图3的命令解码图2“证书”文件的结果

Certutil执行HTTP请求的方式导致其被进一步滥用. Certutil连续使用两个具有不同User-Agents的HTTP GET请求(参见图5), 于是黑客可以设置只允许在接收到正确的User-Agents时才能下载托管文件. 除非提供了正确的User-Agents, 否则服务器通过回复虚假的“Not Found”进行响应(参见图6), 以此阻止研究人员和防御者访问Payload. 这个虚假的“Not Found”响应还可以帮助服务器避免被某些自动URL扫描程序检测到, 因为自动URL扫描器一般会将“Not Found”响应判定为没有恶意文件.

图6: 虚假的“Not Found”响应 Schtasks

另一个常被滥用的合法Windows内置程序是schtasks. 这个程序最初只是设计来简单的安排计划任务. 不幸的是, 黑客们最知道如何安排计划任务和识别执行目标, 从而在被攻克系统上实现驻留.


滥用 Microsoft Windows 内置程序来传播恶意软件
图7: 使用Schtasks创建每两天运行一次指定文件的任务

攻击者可以安排在特定时间运行其脚本或二进制文件, 例如当用户登录时, 或满足其他什么条件时. 有许多可用于触发任务运行的条件, 例如仅当主机可访问互联网且系统处于空闲状态时; 或者(对于挖矿软件)只在主机接入电源时,因为如果被攻击主机是笔记本电脑, 挖矿时电池消耗不会引起注意. (附加条件见图8.)这些条件可用于简单的躲避检测.

这种策略比另一种流行的实现驻留的方式更隐蔽: 在Startup文件夹中放置脚本或可执行文件, 在用户登录时自动运行. 由于Startup文件夹可以浏览, 因此更容易被识别到(图9),而且Startup文件夹是AV检查的首要位置之一.


滥用 Microsoft Windows 内置程序来传播恶意软件
图8: 图7的命令创建的任务配置文件
滥用 Microsoft Windows 内置程序来传播恶意软件
图9: 浏览被放置了文件的Startup文件夹

通过使用schtasks而不是依赖Startup文件夹中的文件, 攻击者能够更好地伪装他们的活动, 并对恶意软件的行为施加更多控制. 另一个好处是用于保存任务信息的文件不需要具有扩展名, 这一点足以使某些防病毒解决方案忽略该配置文件。

BITSAdmin BITSAdmin(或后台智能传输服务)是Windows文件传输工具, 自2007以来就一直存在, 并且通常被利用作为CVE漏洞或Office宏漏洞利用过程的一部分, 通过PowerShell执行, 用于下载文件. (参见图10.)Powershell命令通常会被记录, 并且通过Powershell直接下载文件会触发行为检测系统, 而BITSadmin实际上使用已经存在的svchost.exe进程来执行其操作, 结果看起来好像执行文件创建和下载操作的是svchost.exe. 而svchost.exe创建文件及连接互联网再正常不过, 例如下载Windows更新. 于是利用BITSAdmin下载文件就被会认为是正常行为, 于是就被一些本地防病毒解决方案忽略掉了[4].
滥用 Microsoft Windows 内置程序来传播恶意软件
图10: 使用bitsadmin命令下载文件 BITSAdmin的另一个与Certutil类似好处是, BITSAdmin有一种独特的下载文件的方式. BITSAdmin使用特定的User-Agent(Microsoft BITS / 7.5)来请求文件, 而且它会首先执行HTTP HEAD请求以检查资源是否可用, 而不是直接执行HTTP GET请求获取资源. 如果资源可用, BITSAdmin才接着发送HTTP GET请求. (参见图11.)User-Agent唯一的特性可以像Certutil一样使用, 服务器只有在接收到正确的User-Agent时, 才允许下载托管的文件, 并且HTTP HEAD请求本身就少见, 攻击者也可以使用它达到同样的目的[5].
滥用 Microsoft Windows 内置程序来传播恶意软件
图11: BITSAdmin下载过程的数据包 MpCmdRun

MpCmdRun是一个允许用户与Windows Defender Antivirus进行交互的命令行工具. MpCmdRun对于某些自动化任务非常有用 例如, 如果用户不能更新本地计算机上的Windows Defender, 系统管理员可以使用MpCmdRun进行远程更新. 特别的是, 此功能通常用于强制Windows Defender回滚, 然后在自动更新不起作用时更新签名定义. 但是, 此功能会引入一些缺陷.

攻击者可以使用此工具重置AV签名, 并修改Windows Defender的行为. 最近就出现过使用此技术进行攻击的实际案例: 攻击者在Office宏脚本执行中MpCmdRun命令, 用于在关闭所有打开的Office程序(这对于修改相关注册表项是必需的)之前对Windows Defender进行更改, 并通过注册表项禁用Microsoft Office中的各种安全设置[6]. 在下面的图12的案例中, 与MpCmdRun组合使用的命令删除动态签名, 但不删除所有签名. 通过使用MpCmdRun, 攻击者可以在不禁用Windows Defender的情况下绕过Windows Defender的检测, 从而进一步控制攻克的主机.
滥用 Microsoft Windows 内置程序来传播恶意软件
图12: 使用MpCmdRun的Office宏脚本 我们之前就已经讲过啦

这种趋势并不新鲜, 但滥用平台内置功能的激增, 表明在可预见的未来, 通过滥用内置功能进行网络钓鱼来直接传播Payload的攻击方式, 将会继续存在. 要查看网络钓鱼活动中突出的其他类型的功能滥用, 请参阅我们之前发布的成果:

DDE 2017年11月21日: 滥用Microsoft Word DDE传播Locky, Trickbot和Pony恶意软件 多个CVE 2018年3月8日: 三重威胁: 使用了3个单独的攻击向量的网络钓鱼活动 . OLE 2017年4月10日: 2017年利用OLE包传播的恶意软件占据了一定的市场份额 恶意软件回顾 2018年3月22日: 我们发布的 2018:恶意软件回顾 报告 CVE-2017-11882 2018年4月6日: .XLSX网络钓鱼是否会卷土重来?

通过滥用对企业运营不可或缺的合法功能, 黑客能够绕过AV和行为分析检测系统, 以便成功传播恶意软件. 这种趋势不会消失, 只会越来越大. 鉴于攻击者者能够通过滥用企业(为业务正常运行)无法禁用的功能来绕过防御, 因此必须 培训 企业员工识别最初的威胁并进行上报. 将此种培训与人工验证相结合, 有助于确保防御策略是成功的, 而不仅仅依赖于那些黑客们不断研究如何去绕过的自动化系统.

Still some hot weather but becoming cooler and fresher for many northern and western parts Thursday Much of Portugal and Spain dry but with thundery showers in the far north, drifting into the Balearics later. Sunny spells for Corsica, Sardinia and Italy showers starting to die out, whilst it will stay mostly dry over into the Adriatic and Croatia. Isolated showers in the north of Greece with thunderstorms for the north and east of Turkey, otherwise dry and sunny. Thunderstorms over Switzerland, extending into Austria but staying mostly dry with sunny spells towards central and southeastern parts of Europe. A large area of heavy rain and thunderstorms over the north and west of France will move steadily northeast, on into the Low Countries and then Denmark, Southern Norway and Sweden later. Rain or showers further to the north and west at first in Scandinavia, dying out. Thunderstorms develop in the north and west of Germany and Poland but many parts stay dry with sunshine. Still some high temperatures across Central Europe, Southern Spain into the Mediterranean, near to 30C, locally exceeding 35 in parts of Italy, and up to around a hot 40C for some southern parts of Turkey. Cooler and fresher generally further north and west, although Finland, Southern Sweden and the Baltic States will see temperatures into the high 20s.

Friday Much of Portugal and Spain dry and sunny but with showers in the north and east and Balearics. Sunny spells for Corsica, Sardinia, Italy and the Adriatic but with a few showers, perhaps heavy in the north. Isolated showers for Greece with thunderstorms in the far northeast of Turkey, otherwise dry and sunny. Largely dry around Southeast Europe, towards the Balkan States but with thunderstorms again over Switzerland, extending into Austria and northeast into Poland. Dry and fairly sunny across Central and Southern France but with showers, some heavy, further north and into the Low Countries. Heavy, locally thundery, rain associated with a deepening low continues to move steadily north across Norway, Sweden and Northern Finland with areas further to the south and east around the Baltic also likely to catch some showers. Much of Germany will become dry, though. Little change temperature-wise across the south and east, peaks of 30C, locally exceeding 35C. Progressively cooler and fresher generally further north and west, although Finland, some southern parts of Sweden and the Baltic States will see temperatures well into the high 20s.
