          A Noshahr la Repubblica Islamica conquista l'oro nell'evento "SCUBA" dei Giochi Militari, Russia e Venezuela ex-aequo seconde, Siria sul podio per il bronzo!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Nella località di Noshahr, sul Mar Caspio, si sono tenuti gli eventi subacquei dell'edizione 2018 dei "Giochi Militari".

Ad essi hanno preso parte le rappresentative di otto nazioni.

I giochi prevedevano diverse prove:

  • Percorso a Ostacoli Subaqueo
  • Saldatura Subacquea
  • Salvataggio di Natante Affondato
  • Salvataggio in Spazi Ristretti
  • Recupero di Subacquei Feriti
La Repubblica Islamica Iraniana ha avuto l'onore di salire sul gradino più alto del podio mentre Russia e Venezuela, per un incredibile parità nei punteggi, si sono divise l'argento. Ma ancora più incredibile é stato il terzo posto della Repubblica Araba Siiriana.

Si può ipotizzare che senza gli anni di lotta al terrorismo (che sicuramente hanno interferito con le attività della Marina), i suoi "uomini rana" avrebbero potuto a buon diritto disputarsi l'oro con i colleghi iraniani.

Complimenti a tutti!

          Brazil slams Venezuela as measles spreads across border      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Brazil slams Venezuela as measles spreads across borderBrazil complained on Thursday that Venezuela was doing nothing to stop the spread of an outbreak of measles in Brazil and other neighboring countries that has been sparked by an exodus of Venezuelans fleeing economic collapse. Since February, four people - three of them Venezuelan - have died of measles in the remote Brazilian border state of Roraima where health authorities have confirmed 281 cases of the disease, mostly among children. Although many Brazilian children are already vaccinated against the disease, the vaccination rate has dropped since Brazil was declared free of measles in 2016.

U.S.-Mexico border arrests fall in July, fewer unaccompanied childrenU.S. border agents arrested about 8 percent fewer people in July at the southwest border than in June, but the number of migrant families detained remained nearly constant, according to figures released on Wednesday by the Department of Homeland Security. Of those detained after attempting to enter the United States illegally, about 4,000 were children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border alone, compared to about 5,100 children in June. The numbers come in the wake of President Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" policy, implemented in May, in which federal agencies were ordered to prosecute all immigrants apprehended entering the United States illegally.

By Alexandra Valencia RUMICHACA BRIDGE (Reuters) - Thousands of Venezuelans overwhelmed the Ecuadorean-Colombian border high in the Andean mountains on Thursday, as fears of border closings led to a sudden surge in migrants from the ravaged OPEC-member country. Impoverished Venezuelans are fleeing food shortages, hyperinflation, and violent crime in their homeland, often taking days-long bus rides across South America because they cannot afford flights.

          A Bold Foreign Policy Platform for the New Wave of Left Lawmakers      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ACROSS THE COUNTRY, A NEW COHORT OF PROGRESSIVES IS RUNNING FOR—AND WINNING—ELECTIONS. The stunning victory of democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the Democratic congressional primary in New York is perhaps the most well-known, but she is far from alone. Most of these candidates are young, more than usual are people of color, many are women, several are Muslims, at least one is a refugee, at least one is transgender—and all are unabashedly left. Most come to electoral politics after years of activism around issues like immigration, climate and racism. They come out of a wide range of social movements and support policy demands that reflect the principles of those movements: labor rights, immigrant and refugee rights, women’s and gender rights, equal access to housing and education, environmental justice, and opposition to police violence and racial profiling. Some, though certainly not all, identify not just with the policies of socialism but with the fundamental core values and indeed the name itself, usually in the form of democratic socialism.

Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian-American woman in Detroit, just won the Democratic primary for the legendary Congressman John Conyers’ seat. Four women, two of them members of Democratic Socialists of America and all four endorsed by DSA, beat their male incumbent opponents in Pennsylvania state house primaries. Tahirah Amatul-Wadud is running an insurgent campaign for Congress against a longstanding incumbent in western Massachusetts, keeping her focus on Medicare-for-All and civil rights. Minnesota State Rep. Ilhan Omar, a former Somali refugee, won endorsement from the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, and is running for Keith Ellison’s former congressional seat as an “intersectional feminist.” And there are more.

Many highlight their movement experience in their campaigns; they are champions of immigrant rights, healthcare, student debt organizing and the fight for $15. Intersectionality has grown stronger, as the extremism of Trump’s right-wing racist assault creates significant new gains in linking separate movements focused on racism, women’s rights, immigrant rights, climate, poverty, labor rights and more.

But mostly, we’re not seeing progressive and socialist candidates clearly link domestic issues with efforts to challenge war, militarism and the war economy. There are a few exceptions: Congressional candidate and Hawaii State Rep. Kaniela Ing speaks powerfully about U.S. colonialism in Hawaii, and Virginia State Rep. Lee J. Carter has spoken strongly against U.S. bombing of Syria, linking current attacks with the legacy of U.S. military interventions. There may be more. But those are exceptions; most of the new left candidates focus on crucial issues of justice at home.

A progressive foreign policy must reject U.S. military and economic domination and instead be grounded in global cooperation, human rights, respect for international law and privileging diplomacy over war.

It’s not that progressive leaders don’t care about international issues, or that our movements are divided. Despite too many common assumptions, it is not political suicide for candidates or elected officials to stake out progressive anti-war, anti-militarism positions. Quite the contrary: Those positions actually have broad support within both our movements and public opinion. It’s just that it’s hard to figure out the strategies that work to connect internationally focused issues, anti-war efforts, or challenges to militarism, with the wide array of activists working on locally grounded issues. Some of those strategies seem like they should be easy—like talking about slashing the 53 cents of every discretionary federal dollar that now goes to the military as the easiest source to fund Medicare-for-all or free college education. It should be easy, but somehow it’s not: Too often, foreign policy feels remote from the urgency of domestic issues facing such crises. When our movements do figure out those strategies, candidates can easily follow suit.

Candidates coming out of our movements into elected office will need clear positions on foreign policy. Here are several core principles that should shape those positions.

A progressive foreign policy must reject U.S. military and economic domination and instead be grounded in global cooperation, human rights, respect for international law and privileging diplomacy over war. That does not mean isolationism, but instead a strategy of diplomatic engagement rather than—not as political cover for—destructive U.S. military interventions that have so often defined the U.S. role in the world.

Looking at the political pretexts for what the U.S. empire is doing around the world today, a principled foreign policy might start by recognizing that there is no military solution to terrorism and that the global war on terror must be ended.

More broadly, the militarization of foreign policy must be reversed and diplomacy must replace military action in every venue, with professional diplomats rather than the White House’s political appointees in charge. Aspiring and elected progressive and socialist office-holders should keep in mind the distinction between the successes and failures of Obama’s foreign policy. The victories were all diplomatic: moving towards normalization with Cuba, the Paris climate accord and especially the Iran nuclear deal. Obama’s greatest failures—in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen—all occurred because the administration chose military action over robust diplomacy.

Certainly, diplomacy has been a tool in the arsenal of empires, including the United States. But when we are talking about official policies governing relations between countries, diplomacy—meaning talking, negotiating and engaging across a table—is always, always better than engaging across a battlefield.

A principled foreign policy must recognize how the war economy has distorted our society at home—and commit to reverse it. The $717 billion of the military budget is desperately needed for jobs, healthcare and education here at home—and for a diplomatic surge and humanitarian and reconstruction assistance to people of countries devastated by U.S. wars and sanctions.

A principled foreign policy must acknowledge how U.S. actions—military, economic and climate-related—have been a driving force in displacing people around the world. We therefore have an enormous moral as well as legal obligation to take the lead in providing humanitarian support and refuge for those displaced—so immigration and refugee rights are central to foreign policy.

For too long the power of the U.S. empire has dominated international relations, led to the privileging of war over diplomacy on a global scale, and created a vast—and invasive—network of 800-plus military bases around the world.

Now, overall U.S. global domination is actually shrinking, and not only because of Trump’s actions. China’s economy is rapidly catching up, and its economic clout in Africa and elsewhere eclipses that of the United States. It’s a measure of the United States’ waning power that Europe, Russia and China are resisting U.S. efforts to impose new global sanctions on Iran. But the United States is still the world’s strongest military and economic power: Its military spending vastly surpasses that of the eight next strongest countries, it is sponsoring a dangerous anti-Iran alliance between Israel and the wealthy Gulf Arab states, it remains central to NATO decision-making, and powerful forces in Washington threaten new wars in North Korea and Iran. The United States remains dangerous.

Progressives in Congress have to navigate the tricky task of rejecting American exceptionalism. That means recognizing that it is often a good thing when U.S. global military and economic efforts fail, because they are generally aimed at maintaining domination and control. Without that U.S. domination, the possibility arises of a new kind of internationalism: to prevent and solve crises that arise from current and potential wars, to promote nuclear disarmament, to come up with climate solutions and to protect refugees.

That effort is increasingly important because of the rapid rise of right-wing xenophobic authoritarians seeking and winning power. Trump is now leading and enabling an informal global grouping of such leaders, from Egypt’s Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to Victor Orban in Hungary and others. Progressive elected officials in the United States can pose an important challenge to that authoritarian axis by building ties with their like-minded counterparts in parliaments and governments—possibilities include Jeremy Corbyn in the United Kingdom and Andrés Manuel López Obrador in Mexico, among others. And progressive and leftist members of Congress will need to be able to work together with social movements to build public pressure for diplomatic initiatives not grounded in the interests of U.S. empire.

In addition to these broad principles, candidates and elected officials need critical analyses of current U.S. engagement around the world, as well as nuanced prescriptions for how to de-escalate militarily, and ramp up a new commitment to serious diplomacy.

GEOPOLITICAL POWER PLAYS

RUSSIA: Relations with Russia will be a major challenge for the foreseeable future. With 90 percent of the world’s nuclear weapons in U.S. and Russian hands, and the two powers deploying military forces on opposite sides of active battlefronts in Syria, it is crucial that relations remain open—not least to derail potential escalations and ensure the ability to stand down from any accidental clash.

Progressives and leftists in Congress will need to promote a nuanced, careful approach to Russia policy. And they will face a daunting environment in which to do so. They will have to deal with loud cries from right-wing war-mongers, mainly Republicans, and from neo-con interventionists in both parties, demanding a one-sided anti-Russia policy focused on increased sanctions and potentially even military threats. But many moderate and liberal Democrats—and much of the media—are also joining the anti-Russia crusade. Some of those liberals and moderates have likely bought into the idea of American exceptionalism, accepting as legitimate or irrelevant the long history of U.S. election meddling around the world and viewing the Russian efforts as somehow reaching a whole different level of outrageousness. Others see the anti-Russia mobilization solely in the context of undermining Trump.

But at the same time, progressive Congress members should recognize that reports of Russian efforts to interfere with the 2016 and 2018 elections cannot be dismissed out of hand. They should continue to demand that more of the evidence be made public, and condemn the Russian meddling that has occurred, even while recognizing that the most serious threats to our elections come from voter suppression campaignsat home more than from Moscow. And they have to make clear that Trump’s opponents cannot be allowed to turn the president’s infatuation with Vladimir Putin into the basis for a new Cold War, simply to oppose Trump.

CHINA: The broad frame of a progressive approach should be to end Washington’s provocative military and economic moves and encourage deeper levels of diplomatic engagement. This means replacing military threats with diplomacy in response to Chinese moves in the South China Sea, as well as significant cuts in the ramped-up military ties with U.S. allies in the region, such as Vietnam. Progressive and socialist members of Congress and other elected officials will no doubt be aware that the rise of China’s economic dominance across Africa, and its increasing influence in parts of Latin America, could endanger the independence of countries in those parts of the Global South. But they will also need to recognize that any U.S. response to what looks like Chinese exploitation must be grounded in humility, acknowledging the long history of U.S. colonial and neocolonial domination throughout those same regions. Efforts to compete with Chinese economic assistance by increasing Washington’s own humanitarian and development aid should mean directing all funds through the UN, rather than through USAID or the Pentagon. That will make U.S. assistance far less likely to be perceived as—and to be—an entry point for exploitation.

NATO: A progressive position on NATO flies straight into the face of the partisan component of the anti-Trump resistance—the idea that if Trump is for it, we should be against it. For a host of bad reasons that have to do with personal enrichment and personal power, Trump sometimes takes positions that large parts of the U.S. and global anti-war and solidarity movements have long supported. One of those is NATO. During the Cold War, NATO was the European military face of U.S.-dominated Western anti-Communism and anti-Sovietism. With the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union, peace activists from around the world called for the dissolution of NATO as an anachronistic relic whose raison d’etre was now gone.

Instead, NATO used its 50th anniversary in 1999 to rebrand itself as defending a set of amorphous, ostensibly “Western” values such as democracy, rather than having any identifiable enemy—something like a military version of the EU, with the United States on board for clout. Unable to win UN Security Council support for war in Kosovo, the United States and its allies used NATO to provide so-called authorization for a major bombing campaign—in complete violation of international law—and began a rapid expansion of the NATO alliance right up to the borders of Russia. Anti-war forces across the world continued to rally around the call “No to NATO”—a call to dissolve the alliance altogether.

But when Trump, however falsely, claims to call for an end to the alliance, or shows disdain for NATO, anti-Trump politicians and media lead the way in embracing the military alliance as if it really did represent some version of human rights and international law. It doesn’t—and progressives in elected positions need to be willing to call out NATO as a militarized Cold War relic that shouldn’t be reconfigured to maintain U.S. domination in Europe or to mobilize against Russia or China or anyone else. It should be ended.

In fact, Trump’s claims to oppose NATO are belied by his actions. In his 2019 budget request he almost doubled the 2017 budget for the Pentagon’s “European Deterrence Initiative,” designed explicitly as a response to “threats from Russia.” There is a huge gap between Trump’s partisan base-pleasing condemnation of NATO and his administration&rdqou;s actual support for strengthening the military alliance. That contradiction should make it easier for progressive candidates and officeholders to move to cut NATO funding and reduce its power—not because Trump is against NATO but because the military alliance serves as a dangerous provocation toward war.

THE WAR ON TERROR

What George W. Bush first called “the global war on terror” is still raging almost 17 years later, though with different forms of killing and different casualty counts. Today’s reliance on airstrikes, drone attacks and a few thousand special forces has replaced the hundreds of thousands of U.S. and allied ground troops. And today hardly any U.S. troops are being killed, while civilian casualties are skyrocketing across the Middle East and Afghanistan. Officials from the Bush, Obama and Trump administrations have repeated the mantra that “there is no military solution” in Afghanistan, Syria, or Iraq or against terrorism, but their actions have belied those words. Progressive elected officials need to consistently remind the public and their counterparts that it is not possible to bomb terrorism out of existence. Bombs don’t hit “terrorism”; they hit cities, houses, wedding parties. And on those rare occasions when they hit the people actually named on the White House&rdqou;s unaccountable kill list, or “terrorist” list, the impact often creates more terrorists.

The overall progressive policy on this question means campaigning for diplomatic solutions and strategies instead of military ones. That also means joining the ongoing congressional efforts led by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and others  to challenge the continued reliance on the 2001 and 2002 Authorizations for the Use of Military Force (AUMF).

In general, privileging diplomatic over war strategies starts with withdrawing troops and halting the arms sales that flood the region with deadly weapons. Those weapons too often end up in the hands of killers on all sides, from bands of unaccountable militants to brutally repressive governments, with civilians paying the price. Congress members should demand an end of massive arms sales to Saudi Arabia, the UAE and other U.S. allies carrying out brutal wars across the Middle East, and they should call for an end to the practice of arming non-state proxies who kill even more people. They should call for a U.S. arms embargo on Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan, Jordan and Israel (which presents a whole other set of arms-related challenges), while urging Russia to stop its arms sales to Syria, Iran and Pakistan. Given the power of the arms industries in the United States, arms embargoes are the most difficult—but perhaps the most important—part of ending the expanding Middle East wars.

Progressives in Congress should demand real support for UN-sponsored and other international peace initiatives, staffing whole new diplomatic approaches whose goal is political solutions rather than military victories—and taking funds out of military budgets to cover the costs. The goal should be to end these endless wars—not try to “win&rdqou; them.

ISRAEL-PALESTINE: The most important thing for candidates to know is that there has been a massive shift in public opinion in recent years. It is no longer political suicide to criticize Israel. Yes, AIPAC and the rest of the right-wing Jewish, pro-Israel lobbies remain influential and have a lot of money to throw around. (The Christian Zionist lobbies are powerful too, but there is less political difficulty for progressives to challenge them.) But there are massive shifts underway in U.S. Jewish publicopinion on the conflict, and the lobbies cannot credibly claim to speak for the Jewish community as a whole.

Outside the Jewish community, the shift is even more dramatic, and has become far more partisan: Uncritical support for Israel is now overwhelmingly a Republican position. Among Democrats, particularly young Democrats, support for Israel has fallen dramatically; among Republicans, support for Israel’s far-right government is sky-high. The shift is particularly noticeable among Democrats of color, where recognition of the parallels between Israeli oppression of Palestinians and the legacies of Jim Crow segregation in the United States and apartheid in South Africa is rising rapidly.

U.S. policy, unfortunately, has not kept up with that changing discourse. But modest gains are evident even there. When nearly 60 members of the House and Senate openly skipped Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech when he came to lobby Congress to vote against President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, the sky didn’t fall. The snub to the Israeli prime minister was unprecedented, but no one lost their seat because of it. Rep. Betty McCollum’s bill to protect Palestinian children from Israel’s vicious military juvenile detention system (the only one in the world) now has 29 co-sponsors, and the sky still isn’t falling. Members of Congress are responding more frequently to Israeli assaults on Gaza and the killing of protesters, often because of powerful movements among their constituents. When Trump moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, the Israeli daily Ha’aretz acknowledged the divide: “While members of the Republican Party overwhelmingly expressed support for the move, Democrats were split between those who congratulated Trump for it and those who called it a dangerous and irresponsible action.”

That creates space for candidates and newly elected officials to respond to the growing portion of their constituencies that supports Palestinian rights. Over time, they must establish a rights-based policy. That means acknowledging that the quarter-century-long U.S.-orchestrated “peace process” based on the never-serious pursuit of a solution, has failed. Instead, left and progressive political leaders can advocate for a policy that turns over real control of diplomacy to the UN, ends support for Israeli apartheid and occupation, and instead supports a policy based on international law, human rights and equality for all, without privileging Jews or discriminating against non-Jews.

To progress from cautiously urging that Israel abide by international law, to issuing a full-scale call to end or at least reduce the $3.8 billion per year that Congress sends straight to the Israeli military, might take some time. In the meantime, progressive candidates must prioritize powerful statements condemning the massacre of unarmed protesters in Gaza and massive Israeli settlement expansion, demands for real accountability for Israeli violations of human rights and international law (including reducing U.S. support in response), and calls for an end to the longstanding U.S. protection that keeps Israel from being held accountable in the UN.

The right consistently accuses supporters of Palestinian rights of holding Israel to a double standard. Progressives in Congress should turn that claim around on them and insist that U.S. policy towards Israel—Washington’s closest ally in the region and the recipient of billions of dollars in military aid every year—hold Israel to exactly the same standards that we want the United States to apply to every other country: human rights, adherence to international law and equality for all.

Many supporters of the new crop of progressive candidates, and many activists in the movements they come out of, are supporters of the increasingly powerful, Palestinian-led BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) movement, that aims to bring non-violent economic pressure to bear on Israel until it ends its violations of international law. This movement deserves credit for helping to mainstream key demands—to end the siege of Gaza and the killing of protesters, to support investigations of Israeli violations by the International Criminal Court, to oppose Israel’s new “nation-state’ law—that should all be on lawmakers’ immediate agenda.

AFGHANISTAN: More than 100,000 Afghans and 2,000 U.S. troops have been killed in a U.S. war that has raged for almost 17 years. Not-Yet-President Trump called for withdrawal from Afghanistan, but within just a few months after taking office he agreed instead to send additional troops, even though earlier deployments of more than 100,000 U.S. troops (and thousands more coalition soldiers) could not win a military victory over the Taliban. Corruption in the U.S.-backed and -funded Afghan government remains sky-high, and in just the past three years, the Pentagon has lost track of how $3.1 billion of its Afghanistan funds were spent. About 15,000 US troops are still deployed, with no hope of a military victory for the United States.

Progressive members of Congress should demand a safe withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Afghanistan, acting on the long-held recognition that military force simply won’t work to bring about the political solution all sides claim to want.

Several pending bills also would reclaim the centrality of Congress’ role in authorizing war in general and in Afghanistan in particular—including ending the 2001 AUMF. Funding for humanitarian aid, refugee support, and in the future compensation and reparations for the massive destruction the U.S.-led war has wrought across the country, should all be on Congress’ agenda, understanding that such funding will almost certainly fail while U.S. troops are deployed.

IRAN: With U.S. and Iranian military forces facing each other in Syria, the potential for an unintentional escalation is sky-high. Even a truly accidental clash between a few Iranian and U.S. troops, or an Iranian anti-aircraft system mistakenly locking on to a U.S. warplane plane even if it didn’t fire, could have catastrophic consequences without immediate military-to-military and quick political echelon discussions to defuse the crisis. And with tensions very high, those ties are not routinely available. Relations became very dangerous when Trump withdrew the United States from the multi-lateral nuclear deal in May. (At that time, a strong majority of people in the United States favored the deal, and less than one in three wanted to pull out of it.)

The United States continues to escalate threats against Iran. It is sponsoring a growing regional anti-Iran alliance, with Israel and Saudi Arabia now publicly allied and pushing strongly for military action. And Trump has surrounded himself with war-mongers for his top advisers, including John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, who have both supported regime change in Iran and urged military rather than diplomatic approaches to Iran.

Given all that, what progressive elected officials need to do is to keep fighting for diplomacy over war. That means challenging U.S. support for the anti-Iran alliance and opposing sanctions on Iran. It means developing direct ties with parliamentarians from the European and other signatories to the Iran nuclear deal, with the aim of collective opposition to new sanctions, re-legitimizing the nuclear deal in Washington and reestablishing diplomacy as the basis for U.S. relations with Iran.

It should also mean developing a congressional response to the weakening of international anti-nuclear norms caused by the pull-out from the Iran deal. That means not just supporting the nonproliferation goals of the Iran nuclear deal, but moving further towards real disarmament and ultimately the abolition of nuclear weapons. Progressives in and outside of Congress should make clear that nuclear nonproliferation (meaning no one else gets to have nukes) can’t work in the long run without nuclear disarmament (meaning that the existing nuclear weapons states have to give them up). That could start with a demand for full U.S. compliance with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which calls for negotiations leading to “nuclear disarmament, and on a treaty on general and complete disarmament.”

SYRIA: Progressive candidates and elected officials should support policies designed to end, not “win” the war. That means withdrawing troops, ceasing airstrikes and drone attacks, and calling for an arms embargo on all sides of the multiple proxy war. The civil war component of the multiple wars in Syria is winding down as the regime consolidates its control, but the sectarian, regional and global components of that war have not disappeared, so continuing a call for an arms embargo is still important. The first step is to permanently end the Pentagon’s and the CIA’s “arm and train” policies that have prolonged the war and empowered some of its most dangerous actors.

There will also need to be negotiations between the regional and global actors that have been waging their own wars in Syria, wars that have little to do with Syria itself, but with Syrians doing the bulk of the dying. That means support for the UN’s and other internationally-sponsored de-escalation efforts, and serious engagement with Russia towards a permanent ceasefire, as well as the arms embargo. U.S. policy should include absolute prohibitions on Washington’s regional allies—including Saudi Arabia and Turkey—sending U.S.-provided arms into Syria. And progressive supporters of diplomacy should also maintain pressure on the United States to back multi-lateral diplomatic processes organized by the UN and others—on humanitarian issues in Geneva, and political issues in Astana. Cutting the United States’ multi-billion dollar arms sales to Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Jordan, Turkey and other U.S. allies involved in the Syrian wars would also lend legitimacy to U.S. efforts within those diplomatic processes to press Russia to stop providing arms to the Assad regime.

IRAQ: Congress has largely abrogated its responsibilities even as the 15-year war initiated by the United States continues. Progressive policymakers would do well to join the existing efforts to end—not replace, but cancel—the 2002 Authorization for the Use of Military Force against Saddam Hussein's government in Iraq, and reopen congressional debate, with the goal of ending funding for war in Iraq once and for all. When President Obama withdrew the last troops from Iraq at the end of 2011, stating that “war in Iraq ends this month,” many assumed that the authorization ended as well. But it was never officially repealed and had no expiration date, and three years later Obama claimed that the then-12-year-old authorization justified the war against ISIS in Iraq. While Trump has relied primarily on the 2001 AUMF, the Iraq-specific authorization of 2002 remains in place and should be withdrawn. 

In the meantime, progressives in Congress should support many of the same policies for Iraq as for Syria: withdraw the troops and special forces, stop the assassination program that is the heart of Washington’s “counter-terrorism” campaign and cease sending arms. Congress should end funding to force the closure of the network of small “forward operating bases” and other U.S. military bases that may remain in U.S. hands in Iraq despite earlier agreements to turn them over to the Iraqi government. The U.S. must figure out new ways to provide financial compensation and support to the people whose country and society has been shredded by more than a dozen years of crippling U.S.-led economic sanctions bookended by two devastating wars (Desert Storm, starting in 1991, and the Iraq War, starting in 2003)—while somehow avoiding the further empowerment of corrupt and sectarian political and military leaders.

YEMEN AND SAUDI ARABIA: The ongoing Saudi-led war against Yemen reflects the most deadly front of Saudi Arabia’s competition with Iran for regional hegemony. The United States is providing indirect and direct support, including U.S. Air Force pilots providing in-air refueling so Saudi and UAE warplanes can bomb Yemen more efficiently, and Green Berets fighting alongside Saudi troops on the border, in what the New York Times called “a continuing escalation of America’s secret wars.”

The U.S.-backed Saudi war against Yemen has also created what the UN has declared the world’s most serious humanitarian crisis. Congress’ first action must be to immediately end all U.S. involvement in the war. Next, Congress must reject all approvals for arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE as long as they continue to bomb and blockade Yemen.

Ending these arms sales may be a serious challenge, given the power of the arms manufacturers’ lobby, Israel’s strong support of Saudi Arabia against Iran and the fact that Saudi Arabia remains the top U.S. arms customer. But recent efforts and relatively close votes in both the House and Senate, while not successful, indicate that challenging the longstanding process of providing the Saudis with whatever weapons they want may be closer to reality than anticipated. The House called the U.S. military involvement in the Saudi war in Yemen “unauthorized.” Reps. Ro Khanna, Marc Pocan and others have introduced numerous House bills in recent months aimed at reducing U.S. arms sales and involvement in the Saudi-led assault. In the Senate, a March resolution to end U.S. military involvement in the Yemen war failed by only 11 votes, a much narrower margin than anticipated. Progressive candidates and new members of Congress should support all those efforts, and move further with a call for ending the longstanding U.S. alliance with Saudi Arabia, especially military sales and support for the Saudi-Israeli partnership against Iran.

A QUICK GLANCE AT SOME OTHER POLICY QUESTIONS

NORTH KOREA: Progressive elected officials will need to support Trump’s diplomatic initiatives, challenging mainstream Democrats willing to abandon diplomacy because Trump supports it (however tactically or temporarily). Progressives will also need to condemn U.S. military provocations that undermine that same diplomacy, and build public and congressional support for the inter-Korean diplomatic moves already underway. That should include pushing for exemptions in the U.S.-imposed sanctions that would allow inter-Korean economic and other initiatives to go forward. Progressives in Congress can also play a major role in supporting people-to-people diplomacy with North Korea, and they can lead the way in replacing the current armistice with a peace treaty finally ending the Korean War.

AFRICA: Across the continent, there is an urgent need to reverse the militarization of foreign policy, including reducing the size, breadth of responsibilities and theater of operations of AFRICOM.  The wide-ranging but unauthorized and largely secretive special operations and other military actions across the continent violate not only international law, but U.S. domestic law as well.

LATIN AMERICA: In Latin America, there is an urgent need for a new anti-interventionist policy, not least to stop the current attempts to take advantage of serious domestic crises in Venezuela, Nicaragua and elsewhere. Progressives will need to challenge the U.S. economic and foreign policies that create refugees from Central America in particular (including the consequences of the U.S. wars of the 1980s), even while fighting to protect those migrants seeking safety in the United States as a result of those earlier policies. Regarding Mexico, Congress needs to fight for a U.S. position in trade negotiations that is not based on economic nationalism, but rather on making sure that Mexican workers and U.S. workers are both equally lifted up. Left policymakers will also have the chance to play a leading role in forging a new relationship with Mexico’s just-elected progressive President Lopez-Obrador. 

All of the areas where U.S. wars are or were underway, as well as places where U.S. economic and climate policies have helped create crises threatening people’s lives, also become areas from which migrants are forced to flee their homes. U.S. policymakers must acknowledge that U.S. policies are direct causes of the refugee crises that exist in and around the war zones and climate crisis zones of the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere—and that the refugees seeking asylum in Europe, and the far fewer trying to come to the United States, are a consequence of those policies. So progressive candidates and policymakers should support massive expansion of funding for these victims of war, including humanitarian support in their home regions and acceptance of far greater numbers of refugees into the United States. They must directly challenge the xenophobic policies of the Trump administration that include the Muslim Ban, the separation of children from their families at the border and the vast reduction in refugees accepted into this country. In Congress, that might include introducing bills to cut funding for ICE or eliminate the institution altogether.

Finally, progressive candidates and elected officials will need to continue to craft policy proposals that recognize what happens when the U.S. wars come home. This requires more voices in Congress challenging the military budget because it’s used to kill people abroad and because the money is needed for jobs, health care and education at home. It means challenging Islamophobia rising across the United States because of how it threatens Muslims in the United States and because it is used to build support for wars against predominantly Muslim countries. It means exposing—on the floor of the House and beyond—the fact that the Muslim bans targeted primarily countries the United States was bombing, sanctioning or stationing soldiers in. And it means being clear that protecting refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants has to include ending the wars that create refugees in the first place.

Certainly, we shouldn’t expect every progressive or even every socialist running for national office to become an instant expert on every complicated piece of U.S. foreign policy. And for those running for state and local office, there may seem to be even less urgency. But we’ve seen how the Poor People’s Campaign, with its inclusion of militarism and the war economy as one of its four central targets (along with racism, poverty and environmental destruction), has demonstrated to all of our movements the importance of—and a model for—including an anti-war focus within multi-issue state and local mobilizations. The Movement for Black Lives has created one of the strongest internationalist and anti-war platforms we’ve seen in years—including calls for cutting the military budget, supporting Palestinian rights, stopping the Global War on Terror and the so-called War on Drugs, ending the militarized U.S. interventions across Africa, and linking U.S. military and economic policies with the rise in Haitian and other—predominantly Black—immigration.

Immigrant rights activists are linking movements for sanctuary (and against ICE) with opposition to the wars that create refugees. Campaignsare underway to reject the training of U.S. police by Israeli police and military forces. Battles are being waged to get local law enforcement agencies to refuse Pentagon offers of weapons and equipment left over from U.S. wars in Afghanistan and elsewhere. These campaigns all play out at the local and state level.

So especially for those running for Congress, but really for all candidates at every political level and venue in this country, there is a clear need for a strong, principled position on at least a few key foreign policy issues. And the key to making that happen still lies with our movements.

From Ian:

A homicidal Jew-hatred is going viral, again
The culture of suspicion against Jews circulates now in a country that had not participated in the Holocaust, , which did not have ghettos, but where today for a mixture of Thirdworldism, consistent Islamic electoral interests, anti-colonial madness out of maximum time and anti-Zionism practiced by the progressive elites, the English citizens of Jewish origin today no longer feel at ease.

The previous day there was the indictment of an imam of Copenhagen who in a sermon invited the faithful to kill the Jews. The day before there was the reconstruction of the history of the Imam of the Great Mosque in Toulouse, also guilty of having invited the faithful to get rid of the Jews.

Previously, there was a pan-European flotilla of solidarity to Hamas and Gaza which stopped in many Italian ports. Also a law in the Senate of Ireland which sanctions with prison those who import post-1967 Israeli goods.

And then the launch of hundreds of missiles on the Israeli houses in the south. And then the threats of elimination of the Jewish people coming from the spiritual father of Iran, Ali Khamenei.

And we do not stop here, since the last few weeks have seen nothing short of attacks on Jews in the cities of Germany and France.
Watchdog Group Sues US Government to Obtain Records of BDS Groups Under Obama Administration
A conservative watchdog group has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the State Department, Department of Homeland Security and Department of Defense over Obama-era records pertaining to anti-Israel BDS groups.

Judicial Watch filed the FOIA lawsuit in order to obtain records from 2015 of groups affiliated with BDS movement, which lobbied “the Obama administration to adopt policies to harm companies doing business with Israel,” the group said in a statement.

The lawsuit occurred “after all three agencies failed to respond to nearly identical April 23, 2018, FOIA requests,” the organization explained.

“Americans deserve to know if the Obama-era agenda of supporting anti-Israel radicals in subverting US law is ongoing,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These entrenched bureaucrats of the Deep State clearly require lawsuits to compel observance of FOIA law.”

The lawsuit states, despite Obama signing the 2015 Trade Enforcement Act, “the Customs and Border Protection Bureau restated the West Bank Country of Origin Marking Requirement rules requiring labeling of goods as being from the ‘West Bank,’ despite the fact that it is not a sovereign country,” reported Judicial Watch.

The Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) applauded the move by Judicial Watch.
Israeli Air Force Gets First-Ever Female Squadron Commander
The Israeli Air Force has appointed the first female squadron commander in its 70-year history.

According to Israel’s Channel Two, the commander, who for security reasons is referred to only as “G.,” will be promoted to lieutenant colonel and put charge of the 122nd Squadron, known as “Nachshon.” The squadron is composed of planes specifically geared toward intelligence gathering.

The 34-year-old G. has been active in the Air Force since 2003, and has served in several command positions, including deputy commander of the “Nachshon” Squadron itself.

G. — currently a major — said that she was “happy with the appointment,” which she called “a great privilege alongside a great responsibility.”

“The real work is ahead of me,” she added. “I’m proud to serve in the Air Force.”



Son of Imam Linked to WTC Bombing Kept Children in 'Filthy' Compound, Allegedly Trained Them to Shoot Up Schools
Horrifying details emerged on Wednesday in the case of Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, the son of an imam linked to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, who was arrested in New Mexico on charges of keeping 11 starving children in a filthy compound. According to court documents filed by prosecutors, Wahhaj was training the children to carry out school shootings.

Prosecutors asked the judge to hold Wahhaj without bond for felony child abuse. He is also the subject of an extradition warrant from Georgia on charges of kidnapping his own son from the state in December. His son was not among the starving children rescued from the compound. There are fears the remains of an as-yet unidentified child found at the compound could be Wahhaj’s son.

Prosecutors said on Wednesday that Wahhaj and four accomplices possessed an AR-15 rifle and four pistols with ample ammunition and were training the children to commit school shootings.

Wahhaj’s father, who was born under the name Jeffrey Kearse but now also uses the name “Siraj Wahhaj,” is an imam in New York who was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He served as a character witness in the trial of mastermind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, also known as the “Blind Sheikh.”

The New York Post reported on Monday that the elder Wahhaj is currently the head of the Majid at-Taqwa mosque in Bedford-Stuyvesant. The other defendants in the compound case are the younger Siraj Wahhaj’s wife, his two sisters, and his brother-in-law.








Palestinians celebrate relative's victory in U.S. Congressional race
Sharing smiles and hugs, the extended family of Rashida Tlaib, who is set to become the first Muslim woman to join the US Congress, celebrated her election victory in the courtyard of their West Bank house on Wednesday.

The oldest of 14 children born to a family of Palestinian immigrants, Tlaib is a Detroit native. Her father worked at a Ford Motor Company plant in the city, home of the US car industry, and she became the first Muslim woman elected to the state legislature.

On Tuesday, she won her district's Democratic nomination for Michigan's 13th Congressional district, encompassing parts of Detroit and surrounding suburbs and home to one of the largest Muslim and Arab-American populations in the United States.

Since no one ran in the Republican primary, Tlaib is poised to win the seat.
Nick Cohen: The old left and the new anti-Semitism
Only the handful of Jews who have stuck with the far left believe that now. There are abundent examples of Labour members endorsing racism. The supernatural Jew of Nazi Europe has been reinvented by the left. The Jew is now ‘the Zionist’: the sinister force behind 9/11, the Iraq War, the banking crisis and attacks on the beloved leader.

This sounds like fascism. The convergence between the extremes should not hide the fact that the disgrace of the British Labour party flows from distinctly left-wing sources that threaten the German and wider European left.

The first is failure to come to terms with the crimes of communism. Corbyn was a regular writer for Britain’s communist newspaper, the Morning Star. His chief adviser, the upper-class socialist Seumas Milne, defended the old GDR. The racism on the British left, in its content and tone, dates back to Stalin’s almost forgotten ‘anti-Zionist campaigns,’ at the time of the Slansky trial and ‘doctors’ plot’. I have no doubt that if Corbyn and his allies were Germans, they would be in Die Linke.

There is a second factor. After the fall of communism, the dominant section of the British far left preferred to make common cause with radical Islam or the secular Middle Eastern dictatorships of Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi and Bashar al-Assad than to make their peace with liberal democracy. Anti-Semitic conspiracy theories did them no harm for decades. In Britain, as in Germany, Jews are a tiny minority. The far larger Muslim minority is a key part of Labour’s base now. Although it is a libel to say that all British Muslims are anti-Semitic, it is a statement of fact that the Islamist groups who back Corbyn are reactionary on all questions including Judaism. In any case, because Britain never experienced communism or fascism there is little understanding here about what anti-Semitism is and how dictatorial movements from the Tsarists to Islamic State have used it to attack liberal values.

Let me end with a warning. Labour under Corbyn has avoided the collapse in support that has afflicted social democratic parties across Europe. Corbyn’s acolytes are now telling German social democrats to follow his example. Let the shameful state of the once proudly anti-fascist Labour party stand as a warning to them. They may win more votes. But they will never produce a centre-left politics worth having.
Britain’s Labor Party Is Now the Party of Anti-Semitism
Since the hard-left parliamentarian Jeremy Corbyn became its leader in 2015, the UK’s Labor party has seen near-continuous anti-Semitic outbursts by its members and revelations of Corbyn’s own association with vicious Israel-haters, coupled with several ostensible attempts to set things right which proved to be shams. Most recently, the party has disciplined two MPs for complaining about anti-Semitism. Tamara Berens concludes that this is far more than a passing problem:

Many focus on the question of whether Jeremy Corbyn is an anti-Semite himself. He may or may not be. However, his deliberate actions to reject the Jewish community’s concerns, silence his moderate Labor detractors, and pedal anti-Zionism as central to his political image show that he is more than happy to utilize anti-Semitism for political purposes.

Anti-Zionism—and by extension, giving credence to anti-Semites—is fundamental to the worldview Corbyn has cultivated on his journey to political stardom. For most of his political career, Corbyn was a fringe socialist politician and supporter of the USSR, Syria’s Bashar al-Assad, the Iranian ayatollahs, and the Venezuela of Nicolas Maduro [and Hugo Chavez]. After becoming Labor leader, Jeremy Corbyn toned down some of this support for radical anti-Western groups. Nonetheless, he has consistently maintained his support for anti-Zionist causes. What’s undoubtable is that throughout his career, his ultimate goal has remained the same: rejecting Western values and embracing the alliance between radical socialists and Islamists in a strategic bid to normalize and implement socialism in the UK.

Politically, Corbyn’s strategy is working: according to a recent YouGov poll, 61 percent of the party believes Corbyn is handling accusations of anti-Semitism well. And 80 percent of the party deems him a good leader overall. The events of the past few weeks indicate that the Labor leadership has been able to build on their apparent success to . . . distance themselves from the overwhelmingly Zionist British-Jewish community. This perhaps became most apparent last Friday, when Jeremy Corbyn published another article in the Guardian disregarding his part in normalizing anti-Semitism in the party. The piece came out at 5:00pm, when the majority of Jews in the country were busy preparing for the Sabbath.


Jeremy Corbyn and the 9/11 Conspiracy Theories of a “Very Honoured Citizen”
In one of his bids to escape the antisemitism crisis engulfing the Labour party, last Friday Jeremy Corbyn offered this line in The Guardian:

Labour staff have seen examples of Holocaust denial, crude stereotypes of Jewish bankers, conspiracy theories blaming 9/11 on Israel, and even one individual who appeared to believe that Hitler had been misunderstood.

Mr Corbyn should know all about 9/11 conspiracy bunkum. He has been an enthusiastic champion of Raed Salah, one of the notable peddlers.

Raed Salah is the leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel. It is close to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Salah visited the UK in 2011, planning to speak alongside MPs as part of his tour, including Mr Corbyn.
UK Labour MP under fire for accusing Israel of ‘genocide’ in Gaza in 2012
A senior lawmaker in the British Labour party has come under fire after a 2012 video surfaced that saw him claiming Israel was attempting to commit “genocide” against the Palestinians.

The opposition party, which has been mired in an ongoing anti-Semitism scandal, defended John McDonnell after the clip was published by the Daily Telegraph.

McDonnell is the UK’s shadow chancellor of the exchequer, having been appointed to the post in 2015 by Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has been repeatedly been accused of being soft on anti-Semitism among his party members.

In the video, taken in November 2012 during a round of violence between Israel and terror groups in the Gaza Strip known as Operation Pillar of Defense, McDonnell said: “Nobody can speak without expressing some form of solidarity with the people of Gaza … as the children are murdered and the bombs are flying from Israel.”

“I think it’s absolutely critical now that we use every platform we can to expose what’s going on, which is effectively an attempt at genocide against the Palestinians,” he charged at a far-left rally organized by the Unite the Resistance organization.
Extremist-Linked Assad Fan Lord Sheikh and His Zionist-Bashing Group
Sheikh is on the record publicly praising the controversial group the Al Muntada Trust. The group faced scrutiny after fears were raised that its funds had ended up with Boko Haram extremists. It has been linked to a series of anti-Semitic, homophobic and extremist preachers. In the video above, Lord Sheikh calls the group “marvellous”…

Then there is Lord Sheikh’s praise for the East London Mosque. Sheikh said:

“I would certainly commend the Mosque and Centre: not only do you provide a place of worship, but you provide a holistic service and more importantly the empowerment for women.”

Once again, the East London Mosque has well-known and established links to a series of misogynistic and homophobic speakers.

It gets worse. Lord Sheikh has links to the hugely controversial Interal charity, which was investigated by the Charity Commission over its links to Hamas.
Birthright co-founder: Don't criticize Israel on our nickel
Birthright Israel co-founder and billionaire philanthropist Charles Bronfman said on Wednesday that young Jews are free to criticize Israel, but not while enjoying a free trip, JTA reported.

“If people want to call Israel names and say bad things about the country, they certainly have the right to free speech. But they don’t have the right to do it on our nickel,” he was quoted as having told Haaretz in an interview.

His comments came after at least two groups of American Jews visiting Israel on the 10-day trip left the tour to join leftists groups on visits to Palestinian Arabs. The walk-offs reportedly were encouraged by the leftist American-Jewish group IfNotNow.

The young Jews who walked off the trip and some others who remain on them are critical of what they say is Birthright’s failure to deal with Israel’s alleged “occupation” of Judea and Samaria. Some have complained that maps handed out to participants do not draw a proper distinction between Israel and Judea and Samaria.

Bronfman said in his interview with Haaretz that participants on Birthright can extend their trip and join any kind of group they want or travel on their own to areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority.

“If they want to go to the West Bank or Gaza, they are certainly free to go,” he was quoted as having told Haaretz.

“What is not fair is making a big tzimmes while the trip is on. Frankly, I just don’t think that is fair to their fellow participants,” added Bronfman.
Another Jump the Shark Moment from JVP
The latest email from Jewish Voice for Peace's Deputy Directory Stefanie Fox may be a jump the shark moment for the anti-Israel group. The subject line reads "Why is the ADL training ICE in Israel?" Maybe Stefanie is secretly hoping you don't bother to read the rest of her offering. (Spoiler alert: they aren't)

Stephanie claims ICE has been learning techniques and tools from the Israeli military. She doesn't care if Peter Edge was in Israel studying cyber-security or attempting to learn from Israel's remarkable sucess at curtailing human trafficking. If it involves Israel, it must be made to be nefarious. Stefanie Fox spews typical JVP vitriole: "The real-world results of these trips have been Israeli & US officials sharing “worst practices” -- deportation and detention, shoot-to-kill policies, massive spying and surveillance -- that have become the go-to policies of agencies like ICE."

Why the hyperbole? Because 3 years ago, during the Obama administration the Deputy Associate Director of Homeland Security Investigations, one man, Peter Edge joined a delegation to Israel sponsored by the ADL.
American Association of University Professors: Don’t boycott the anti-Israel academic boycotters
But if you uphold the right to boycott, you necessarily need to uphold the right to counter-boycott.

The problem with this is that AAUP upholds the right to boycott, but only on one side. Substantively it opposes both the boycott and counter-boycott, but procedurally it upholds only the right of the boycotters.

AAUP also sent a letter to Israel regarding Israel’s denial of entry to Columbia Law Professor Katherine Franke, an academic boycott supporter.

Additionally, AAUP’s Committee A on Academic Freedom and Tenure sent a letter to the Israeli government in regard to the interrogation, subsequent expulsion, and apparent banning from Israel of Columbia Law School Professor Katherine Franke over her supporter of the “Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions” (BDS) movement in April. The letter urges the government of Israel to “reconsider your immigration officer’s decision and to revoke any further ban on Professor Franke’s entry for purposes of collaborative academic and scholarly work in Israel.”

Again, AAUP upholds Professor Franke’s right to boycott Israel and Israelis, but does not uphold the reverse. It does not matter that it is the Israeli government boycotting Professor Franke, since the BDS movement regularly seeks to impose government boycotts of Israel. So governmental power is used by both sides.

By turning academia into war by other means, the anti-Israel academic boycotters invited relatiatory boycotts. By affirming the rights of the boycotters to boycott Israel, but rejecting the right of Israel and supporters of Israel to counter-boycott, AAUP is not consistent or principled.
Legal action taken against first BDS motion by Latin American municipality
An organization of Chilean-Israelis has filed a legal action against the municipal council of the Chilean city of Valdivia and its mayor, which recently approved the first municipal BDS motion in Latin America. BDS refers to the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement targeting Israel.

The Chilean Community of Israel (CCHIL) organization sent a letter on July 30 to the Chilean state comptroller arguing that the motion contravenes Chilean law, that a municipal council has no jurisdiction to take such actions and that the mayor has overstepped his legal authority by advancing and signing the motion.

In Spain, dozens of municipal authorities have adopted BDS motions against Israel prompted by the pro-Palestinian advocacy of the left-wing populist Podemos Party.

Anti-BDS activists are now concerned that this phenomenon could spread to Latin America, and the legal motion to the Chilean state comptroller is an effort to try and stop it in its tracks.

The ACOM organization in Spain has successfully sued 33 local municipal authorities out of at least 100 that approved BDS motions. It is hoped that the widespread adoption of such measures can be avoided in Chile and the broader region.

Indeed, the Valdivia municipal decree itself, passed in June, references the BDS motions in Spanish cities, saying that its own measure was following in those footsteps.
Anti-Semitism Soars on U.S. College Campuses
Anti-Semitic incidents on U.S. college campuses have continued to grow in 2018, with at least 384 recorded incidents in the first half of this year, according to a new report showing the number of genocidal expressions towards Jewish hit new highs on campuses across the United States.

A new report by released Wednesday by pro-Israel organization the AMCHA Initiative, a group that tracks anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activity on college campuses, shows that much of the anti-Semitism on U.S. campuses is the result of activity by anti-Israel activists who promote imagery such as swastikas and tropes calling for the destruction of the Jewish people, according to the report.

Genocidal expression, such as images and language promoting the killing of Jews and destruction of Israel, "rose dramatically" over the past years, with at least 75 percent of such incidents "involving classic anti-Semitism" and "genocidal expression," according to the report. The number of such incidents appear to have dropped slightly from 2017 to the first part of 2018, the report notes.

Most notably, according to the report, "Israel-related incidents were significantly more likely to contribute to a hostile campus," the report found.

The AMCHA report puts figures to a range of anecdotal and reported conflicts on college campuses across the United States, where anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activity continues to flourish. Pro-Palestinian campus activists continue to aggressively silence those in the Jewish community and foster an unsafe environment for many Jewish students.
Christian Science Monitor Highlights Benefits of Jewish Sovereignty
One underlying message that modern mass media offers about Israel is that Jewish power and sovereignty in the land of Israel is a threat or obstacle to the welfare of people living in the Middle East. This dishonest narrative, which fits the agenda of authoritarian regimes and de-stabilizing political movements that use anti-Zionism as a unifying political agenda, infects much, if not most of the media coverage of the Jewish state. This “blame-Israel” narrative is so ubiquitous that it comes as a shock when a news outlet gets it right and portrays Israel as a force for good in the Middle East. But it does happen.

It happened in an article published on July 11, 2018 in the online edition of The Christian Science Monitor and reprised in the July 30, 2018 issue of The Christian Science Monitor Weekly.

The article, titled “Syrian war comes to Israel’s doorstep, brings swirl of changing attitudes,” was written by Dina Kraft. In the article, Kraft recounts how 10,000 people fleeing from Syrian Civil War have come to rely on Israel for their welfare and safety. They have gathered near Syria’s border with Israel because of the protection the Jewish state affords them under “Operation Good Neighbor.” The program provides food, fuel, medical supplies and in some instances medical treatment to people living in villages near Israel. As a result of the program, “[s]ome 5,000 Syrians have been treated in Israeli hospitals,” Kraft reported.

These acts of kindness have changed how many Syrians view the Jewish state, the article indicates.
BBC double standards in reporting social media incitement evident again
In April of this year the BBC News website’s domestic pages reported the sentencing of a Salford man previously found guilty of “encouragement of terrorism”.

“Muslim convert Adam Wyatt, 48, admitted disseminating a terrorist publication that said “Britain must atone for its sins in Palestine” and posting on social media that jihad was an obligation for all Muslims.”

The following month the website reported the sentencing of a man from Sunderland who had previously pleaded guilty to similar offences.

“A shopkeeper who tweeted support for Islamic State (IS) and called for “death to Shias” has been jailed for four-and-a-half years.

Mohammed Zahir Khan, of Nora Street, Sunderland, had admitted encouraging terrorism, dissemination of a terror publication and stirring up religious hatred.”


Unsurprisingly, the BBC did not send a reporter to interview either of those men before they were sentenced. Neither did it promote the notion that they were put on trial because of their identity to millions of audience members or portray either of their cases as being about “free speech”.

However, when an Israeli-Arab woman was sentenced to five months in prison after having been convicted of incitement to violence in her poems and social media posts, the BBC News website amplified her claims of political persecution in a July 31st report titled “Dareen Tatour: Israeli Arab poet sentenced for incitement“.
Shocking documentary shows how Sweden’s ruling leftist party ‘helped’ Nazi Germany
A shocking documentary about Sweden’s ruling Social Democratic Party, shows how the leftist party ‘inspired and helped’ Nazi Germany.

The documentary, produced by the party’s right-wing opponent, the Sweden Democrats, was removed by YouTube yesterday in an act of censorship.

But after a backlash it is now visible again on the social media channel of broadcaster Samtiden Dokumentär.

Ironically the documentary starts with the leader of the leftist Social Democratic Party, Swedish prime minister Stefan Löfven, telling how the right-wing Social Democrats historically have Nazi roots.

But now the Sweden Democrats are hitting back and have produced this documentary to tell the truth about their leftist opponents.

And it is revealing as it shows that the Swedish Social Democrats inspired Nazi Germany on the issue of Eugenics or “ethnic cleansing”.
Jewish couple in Belgium targeted with death threats
A Jewish woman living in Belgium said her family has been targeted with anti-Semitic abuse since one of their neighbors discovered they were Jews.

The woman, identified only as Nicole, 43, in an article published last month by the La Meuse regional daily about her ordeal, had been living for over two years in Marchienne-au-Pont, a suburb of Charleroi 30 miles south of Brussels, without incident, according to the report.

But this summer, the report said, she and her family have been targeted in a campaign of harassment that has featured written death threats stuffed into their mailbox and the scrawling of anti-Semitic graffiti on their front door.

“We are too afraid to leave our home since this started,” Nicole, a Chile native, was quoted as telling the newspaper. “Several people discovered we’re Jewish and ever since we’ve been getting death threats.” One letter addressed to Nicole called her a “dirty whore” and other insults.

The couple have filed several complaints with police but no suspects have been brought in.
Mayoral candidate: Questioning Holocaust isn't anti-Semitism
A self-proclaimed Holocaust revisionist is planning a run for mayor of Hilton Head, South Carolina, but says his beliefs will not impact his local anti-development platform.

Michael Santomauro, 59, filed papers to enter the race on Monday, according to the Island Packet.

Santomauro, who founded a roommate-matching service, made headlines in New York City in 2003 when subscribers to his service received a stream of emails spreading his beliefs denying historical accounts of the Holocaust.

In 2004, protesters surrounded his home and chanted “evict the Nazi.” He told the New York Post then that the Nazi label is “totally inaccurate.” He told the Island Packet this week that the protesters were “part of a domestic terrorism group.”

In 2011, Santomauro urged his child’s school on Manhattan’s Upper East Side to acquire the book “Debating the Holocaust: A New Look at Both Sides.” The book collects essays denying key aspects of Holocaust history, including the death toll, the accounts of survivors, the physical evidence found at death camps and the feasibility of the methods the Nazis used to carry out mass murder. Santomauro runs American operations for a publisher of e-books dedicated to Holocaust denial.
Germany lifts ban on Nazi symbols in video games
Computer and video games can include swastikas and other Nazi symbols, a German industry body said Thursday, after a heated debate over the “Wolfenstein” franchise in which gamers battle Third Reich forces.

The game was previously deemed to have fallen foul of the German criminal code, which bars any depiction of so-called “anti-constitutional” symbols, including Nazi swastikas.

Accordingly in “Wolfenstein II,” images of Adolf Hitler were doctored to remove his mustache and the swastika in the Nazi flag was replaced with a triangular symbol.

This sparked an uproar in the gaming community, prompting calls for games to be treated like films.

Because movies are deemed works of art, they are exempt from the ban, similar to material used in research, historical or scientific purposes.

Films set in the World War II-era, for instance, are allowed to be screened in Germany with Nazi symbols.
Curator of Elie Wiesel Museum Welcomes Global Outpouring of Support, as Romanian Police Arrest Vandalism Suspect
In the wake of this past weekend’s vandalism incident at the childhood home of the late Holocaust survivor and Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel in Romania, there has been an outpouring of solidarity from across the globe, the curator of the museum at the site told The Algemeiner on Wednesday.

Alina Marincean said the incident — in which antisemitic graffiti was scrawled on the home — came as a surprise to both museum staff members and local residents in the city of Sighetu Marmatiei, located in northwestern Romania near the border with Ukraine.

“Nothing of this sort ever happened to us and we are organizing yearly public events with a great impact on the local and regional community,” she noted.

Following the discovery of the graffiti on Saturday, Marincean recalled, “I spent the whole next day responding to emails and answering calls from friends, visitors, people I know from around the world from Finland to South America, Israel and the US, people who expressed their concern and also support.”

“There were also visits at the museum from politicians and intellectuals from Romania who wanted to point out the importance of this place that keeps Elie Wiesel’s work and memory alive, as well as the memory of all those 38,000 Jews who never returned to their homes after May 1944,” she added.
Patented Israeli Laser Technology Could be Used to Fight Forest Fires Across the World
Texas, Oregon, Florida, New Jersey, as well as Canada, Greece, India, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the UK are among other areas battling massive forest fires, a phenomenon experts expect will only increase due to climate change.

It was the massive forest fires in Israel over the past several years that gave electro-optics physicist Daniel Leigh the idea of using algorithm-controlled laser beams from helicopters or trucks to zap leaves, thin branches and pine needles off treetops in the path of fire. The flames are forced downward, where they can be more easily controlled by conventional methods.

Leigh explains that leafy treetops provide a highly combustible smorgasbord for hungry forest fires. Fanned by extreme wind and weather conditions, a forest fire that rises to the treetops spreads out of control in the blink of an eye.

When Leigh shared his idea with ecologist Zvika Avni, former chief of the Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF) Forestry Department, Avni agreed to be the ecology and the wildfire fighting specialist for Leigh’s startup, Fighting Treetop Fire (FTF).
Swedish Christian Zionists to sail to Israel
Following Swedish pro-Hamas operatives’ failed attempt to reach Gaza by sea, a Christian supporter of Israel from Sweden announced he would take dozens of pro-Zionists to Israel on his yacht.

Stefan Abrahamsson today announced on Facebook that his yacht, Elida, will set sail from Sweden on Aug. 25 to Israel to show solidarity with the Jewish State and Middle East Christians.

“We want to break the silence of the severe persecution and cleansing of the Christian population that is taking place in this region,” he wrote. “As the only democracy in the Middle East amid ​​dictatorships, Israel welcomes us on this show of solidarity with human rights, freedom of expression, freedom of religion, and fundamental democratic values. In turn, we are taking a stand for the values ​​that Israel stands for.”

Abrahamsson wrote that on Aug. 24 he will organize a sendoff party at the Gothenburg marina from which his yacht, carrying about 40 activists, will set sail for Herzliya, Israel. The Elida is expected to reach Israel in October and dock there for several weeks. The sendoff will feature a discussion on “precisely these important issues,” he wrote. Lars Adaktusson, a lawmaker from Sweden in the European Parliament, is scheduled to speak at the event.
Israeli runner Lonah Chemtai Salpeter wins gold at European Championships
Israel’s Lonah Chemtai Salpeter won the women’s 10,000-meter run at the 2018 European Athletics Championships in Berlin Wednesday, completing the race in 31 minutes, 43.29 seconds.

Israeli-Kenyan Salpeter came 9 full seconds ahead of Susan Krumins of the Netherlands, winning the gold medal. Sweden’s Meraf Bahta came third.

The 29-year-old became the first Israeli to be crowned European champion.

“I still don’t believe it,” she said afterwards. “I’m really happy. I dreamed of this, but I didn’t believe it happened.”

Salpeter will receive a grant of NIS 40,000 (some $11,000) from Israeli sports authorities for her win.

Born in Kenya, she first came to Israel in 2008, working as a caretaker at Kenya’s embassy in Tel Aviv. While running at a Herzliya park, she was noticed by running coach Moti Mizrahi, who suggested she train professionally.
2.4 million tourists came to Israel so far in 2018, ministry says
Israel’s Ministry of Tourism has announced that 2.4 million tourists have visited Israel since the beginning of 2018, a 17% increase in tourists for the same period in 2017.

Citing findings from Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics, the ministry said in a statement that the number of tourists is 46 percent more than in 2016, almost double the number of tourists that entered during the same period that year.

According to the ministry, 293,400 tourists entered Israel during July 2018 alone, which is around eight percent more tourists than in July 2017.

Over 250,000 tourists came by air, the release said, an 8.8% increase compared to July 2017. 26,200 of them came through land crossings into Israel, a 3.1% increase compared to that month the year before. (Israel only has land border crossings with Egypt and Jordan.)

“Month after month, we are witnessing new achievements and record highs in incoming tourism,” Minister of Tourism Yariv Levin (Likud) said in a statement. “I am pleased that, in the last month, we have also seen an impressive rise in incoming tourism... the tourism industry continues to be a significant factor in making exceptional impact and contributions to the Israeli economy and workforce.”

Levin also praised the ministry’s marketing initiatives and “innovative activities… Together with the incentives for airlines and investments in infrastructure,” for contributing to the rise in tourism.
2,200-Year-Old Earring Found in Jerusalem Excavation Sheds Light on Hellenistic Period in Judea
A 2,200-year-old golden earring was discovered at the City of David’s archaeological excavation just outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, shedding light on life in the city after it was conquered by the Greeks.

The rare artifact depicts a finely-crafted head of a horned animal and delicate filigree work, and is believed to date back to the second or third century BCE, a period during which the Temple was the center of Jewish life, but the region was controlled by the Greeks and a significant percentage of the Jewish populace was influenced by Greek culture and beliefs.

During the time period the earring is believed to be connected to, Judea was a semi-autonomous Hellenistic vassal first under the rule of Ptolemaic Egypt from 301 to 198 BCE, and then under the Seleucid Empire, after Antiochus III conquered Jerusalem. Shortly afterwards, Jews who were not Hellenized ultimately took part in the Maccabean Revolt of 167 BCE, which is commemorated in the Hanukkah story.

According to Professor Yuval Gadot of Tel Aviv University, co-director of the Givati Parking Lot excavation, the find is the first earring discovered in Jerusalem from the Hellenistic period, found in an early-Hellenistic period building deep inside the dig.

    TRANSCRIPT:

     

     

     

    3:00 p.m. EDT

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Hi, everybody. How are you today? And why are so many of you showing up on an August afternoon? You’re supposed to all be on vacation or something, but I notice a few empty seats. But Gardiner’s back from vacation. Gardiner, welcome.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Thank you.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: How’ve you been?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: I’ve been good.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Good. A couple announcements to start before we get started with your questions today.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    First, I would like to express our condolences to the victims of the recent earthquakes and also the aftershocks in Indonesia. The United States has experts and partner organizations on the ground. We’re consulting with the Government of Indonesia at this time. We’re closely monitoring the situation, and we stand ready to provide additional aid to the Government of Indonesia. Our U.S. consulate personnel are assisting affected U.S. citizens. At this time, we do not have any reports of U.S. citizen casualties associated with the earthquakes. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Indonesian people. As many of you know, we were recently on the ground in Indonesia and had some terrific meetings with government officials there.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Next, I have some staffing news to bring you now. And I’m really excited about this one, because it affects our Bureau of Public Affairs and specifically the folks that you will working with. Today I’d like to announce that Robert Palladino will be joining our press team as the State Department’s deputy spokesperson. Robert is a career Foreign Service officer and I believe known well to some of you or perhaps many of you.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Over the past year, Robert has served as director of press and acting National Security Council spokesperson. In that role he’s helped to prepare Sarah Sanders for her briefings at the White House. He was also a spokesperson to the White House press corps and worked as NSC communications lead for both Asia and Europe. Robert’s Foreign Service career has included postings in Washington, where he worked for our Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs, and the Office of the Under Secretary for Public Affairs and Public Diplomacy, and also on Capitol Hill. Overseas, he’s worked in Milan, Italy; Guangzhou, China; and also Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Prior to joining the State Department, he practiced law in Asia and Europe in the Army JAG Corps. His service included deployment to Rwanda. He is a graduate of Notre Dame University, Washington and Lee School of Law, the U.S. Army War College, and he also speaks Chinese and Italian. Pretty impressive.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    We are delighted that he is coming back to the State Department from the White House. I know you will enjoy working with him. For those of you who have not met him, he is a terrific guy. We’ve worked closely together for the past year or so. I asked him what his children thought, because he has two young girls – I asked him what they thought of his job, and I love these quotes. His youngest daughter said, “I’m proud of America and I’m proud of you, Dad, but it sounds really boring.” And then his older daughter said this – and you’ll appreciate it – “But wait a minute, everybody yells questions and they’re angry. That’s the worst job in the world.” That actually might be the White House press corps, not you all. But we look forward to welcoming Robert when he joins us on the 20th of August. But try not to bug him between now and then; he’s on vacation with his family. So another addition to our press family.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    And that’s it. With that, I’d be happy to take your questions.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay, thanks. We’ll try not to be so angry.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I said not you all.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Let’s – me, yes me. I just wanted to ask you briefly before I ask you about Yemen. I noticed the statement that you guys put out about Zimbabwe, the Zimbabwe elections and the Zambian decision to deport the opposition leader.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Right.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: And in that statement it said that you are reviewing certain aspects of your cooperation with the Zambian Government. Can you be a little bit more specific? What aspects of --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Some of those will be conversations that will be had privately with both governments. But my understanding is that there are certain agreements in which that government was taking steps that the Zimbabweans weren’t completely familiar with and weren’t supportive of, and there were some concerns related to that. But let’s just --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: No, I understand, but I was just --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: But let’s just back up a couple steps for folks who’ve not been following this perhaps as closely as you have. Elections on July the 30th – those were promising, very promising. We thought it was a historic chance to sort of move beyond the political and economic crises of the past and toward a more democratic change and better dialogue in that country. People turned out massively in those elections. We put out a statement just after those elections complimenting them on those elections.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    However, the success in delivering an election day that was peaceful and open to international observers was then marred by violence, which we’ve been seeing and has been heavily reported, at least in the international press, over the past about week and a half. We’ve seen a disproportionate use of deadly force against protestors by the security forces, which is a great concern of ours. We’re concerned by those numerous reports of human rights violations since the elections had taken place about a week and a half or two ago. We have received credible allegations of detentions, of beatings, and other abuses of the people of Zimbabwe, particularly targeting opposition activists.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Now, the latest news today is the foreign – excuse me, the former minister of finance had left to go to Zambia. Zambia returned him to Zimbabwe, we understand. And some of this is still fresh so we don’t have all the details at this point. But I understand he was detained and possibly let go.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    So I’m going to pause there because some of this is still unfolding, and I don’t want to give you any inaccurate information since it’s still developing.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: I get that. I just wanted to know is this a threat to withhold or suspend some aid to Zambia when you say you’re reviewing certain aspects of our cooperation?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Matt, I’m not going to get into that at this point, but we’re watching the situation carefully.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: All right. Let me ask you about this airstrike in Yemen, which appears to have killed dozens of children. The Saudis obviously are the ones who conducted this, but they do that with weapons supplied by the U.S., with training supplied by the U.S., and with targeting information, targeting data, supplied by the U.S. How can something like this happen?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: How can something like that report happen?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Well, I think we would start by saying --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: It’s more than a report. I mean, it’s – they admitted that it happened.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah. How can situations like this happen? We don’t have the full details about what happened on the ground. We’ve certainly seen the news reports of what has been reported happened, okay? I can’t confirm all the details because we are not there on the ground.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    We can say that we’re certainly concerned about these reports that resulted – that there was an attack that resulted in the deaths of civilians. We call on the Saudi-led coalition to conduct a thorough and transparent investigation into the incident. We take all credible accounts of civilian casualties very seriously. We call on the parties to take appropriate measures to protect civilians in accordance with international law and urge all parties to investigate all reported incidents of civilian casualties.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay. Well, they say – already the coalition says that they acted in accordance with international law. But if you look at the photographs, the video that come from the scene, it doesn’t look like that’s a really – that that’s a credible answer. So are you okay with the coalition on its own doing an investigation, or would you like to see some kind of an international component to it or an international investigation?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Well, I think I just answered that and we said that we would call upon the Saudi Government --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So you’re --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: -- to do a full and thorough investigation, as we always do. And we call upon all parties in any kind of situation like this to take appropriate measures to try to mitigate the risk of civilian casualties.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So you don’t think --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: DOD and other entities put out reports on this after the fact as they all start to investigate, and so we will look forward to any information on that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Right. But my question is you don’t see a need for there to be something other than a coalition investigation, you don’t see a need for an independent --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Matt, I’m not going to get – this is something that is fresh, that just happened, so I’m not going to get ahead of any kind of investigation that may take place. Okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: It’s only the latest in a huge number of civilians killed during these operations though.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I would encourage you to take a look – and that is we regret any loss of civilian life. That is something that the United States Government – in particular, any time you talk to the Department of Defense about civilian casualties, they will say the same thing --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: -- that – I’m not finished, okay? And they will say the exact same thing, that all parties take very strong responsibility and measures to try to protect against the loss of civilian life. As we have seen – and you all very rarely ask about the issue that has been unfolding and the devastation that has taken place in Yemen – let’s look at some of the things that have been happening in Yemen.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    You have the Houthi rebels who continue to attack Saudi Arabia. They continue to do that with Iranian weapons, missiles, and rockets. They continue to try to attack civilian infrastructure in Saudi Arabia, for example, and that is part of the reason why these actions are being taken.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Let me go back and remind you what I just said a moment ago, and that is we call for an investigation and we anticipate that a thorough investigation will be done. I don’t have anything more for you on that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: The Secretary isn’t planning on having a conversation with --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have any information for you on that. Okay.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Hi, Nick.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Is this – hey, Heather. Is this latest incident or the previous incidents causing the U.S. to re-evaluate in any way the role that it’s playing in the situation, in terms of its relationship with Saudi Arabia?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Look, we provide a tremendous amount of humanitarian assistance in Yemen to try to support civilians in Yemen and try to mitigate against the devastation that’s taken place there in that country. I don’t have anything more for you on that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But you also supply a tremendous amount of weaponry and the data for targeting to the Saudis.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Well, then – sorry.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Right? No?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: No.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Am I wrong? Is that wrong?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: That’s not wrong.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Sorry, these ladies over here are laughing. On that I would refer you to the Department of Defense that is involved with that, but as you know, Saudi Arabia is an important strategic partner in the region to the United States.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Okay. Hi, Gardiner.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Just a follow-up on that. Hey. So obviously, there’s growing concerns in Congress about the toll this war is taking within Yemen. It’s the worst humanitarian disaster on the planet. Aren’t you concerned that incidents like this will further erode congressional support and lead to further support for legislation that could cut off Saudi Arabia from arms sales and the rest?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I mean, I think that is an entirely hypothetical question and we don’t comment on congressional proposals in any event, but I would ask – all of you have been very silent on the issue of Yemen, and times --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Although Said has asked. You’ve been the one reporter who’s asked a lot about Yemen and the situation there.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well I would suggest that if you had more than two briefings a week and they lasted for longer than a half an hour or 40 minutes that you might get questions about something other than the actual main topic of the day.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Matt, I think you and I talk every single day.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Yes, we do.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: You have my phone number. You have all my numbers, and anytime you want to talk about Yemen, I’d be more than happy to answer your questions and provide you additional expert briefings --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: -- on Yemen anytime anyone is interested, but I have not seen a major level of interest on the part of our press corps, with the exception of Said, on the issue of Yemen.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Why does that matter, though? There’s news today, so --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Can you request an expert on Yemen?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, certainly, I’d be happy to. Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Wait, so first of all, I think that when there have been attacks against Saudi installations or missiles and stuff, I think you’ve seen that there have been just as vigorous of reporting.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t – I disagree, but --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well, I mean, that’s – it’s not our job to, like, sit here and go back and forth on that. We’re asking today. The U.S. has tried to increase its target training with – to try and improve the targeting of the Saudi coalition. Is that still continuing?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Elise, I think that would be a DOD issue, so I’d encourage you to talk with my --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But these are foreign – okay, but these are foreign military financing.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Which is out of the State Department.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: And I would encourage you to talk to DOD about that. So some --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well, maybe --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Some of this – some of this is a State Department equity, but much of this is Department of Defense, so I’d encourage you to talk with them about it.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Hey, Laurie.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Hi. On Iraq, the road between Erbil and Kirkuk, which was cut as a result of fighting last October, is being rebuilt, but Baghdad has said that it will establish a customs border on that road and collect revenues. Is that consistent, a customs border in the middle of the Erbil-Baghdad road, in which one party, the Iraqi Government, is going to collect revenues? Is that consistent with your view of a unified Iraq?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I would – there are other countries that have done this in the past, including our own country years ago in which this type of thing has been done. I think this is largely an internal matter for the Government of Iraq, between Iraq and Erbil, to try to work out. We do encourage them to resolve any remaining issues between Baghdad and Erbil.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: You don’t have a position beyond that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Look, we believe that a strong KRG government within a unified and federal Iraq is something that’s essential to Iraq’s long-term stability and the enduring defeat overall of ISIS.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay, if I could ask you about Turkey. So the deputy foreign minister was here; it seemed there was no progress. Is that the case? And was pastor – were the American hostages the only issues that were discussed or were there other questions like the Turkish purchase of the S-400 discussed as well?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah. I mean, obviously you all know that we have a very broad relationship with Turkey and a host of issues that we talk about with the Turkish Government whenever we do meet. Yesterday we had a wide-ranging conversation with Turkish Government officials. We made it clear that Pastor Brunson needs to be returned home. Much of this, though, we’re not going to negotiate in public.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Can you tell us --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Go ahead. Hi.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Can you tell us if you made any progress about the situation of Pastor Brunson?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, I would say we would define progress as Pastor Brunson being brought home.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So in other words, no.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: And so progress is --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Until he – until he’s --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Progress is Pastor Brunson being brought home to the United --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So until he’s home there is no progress?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: -- to the United States.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Did you give any --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Did you give any deadline? Did you give Turkish officials any deadline?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have any information for you on that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Thanks. Hi.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: I think progress is kind of coming closer towards an agreement, like you’re not – you don’t have full North Korean denuclearization but you say that there is progress in working towards that goal. So is there progress in coming to some kind of deal with the Turks or are you still as far apart as you were the day that he was being hospitalized?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, I’m not going to characterize it that way. As you know, we had – we met yesterday. They had wide-ranging meetings at the State Department and with other departments here in Washington. I’d refer you to those other departments that met with the Turkish Government. The progress that we want to be made is to have Pastor Brunson return home. And I’ll leave it at that. Okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So is that saying you will not engage with the Turks anymore on this issue until Pastor Brunson comes home?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I’m not going to speculate on that, and I’m not going to get ahead of the administration on that issue. Hey, Said.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Hi. Thank you, Heather. Could we move – could you comment on the escalation in Gaza? There has been escalation in Israeli bombardment of Gaza as we speak.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I’m sorry, start that over again.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: There is an escalation as we speak of Israeli bombardment of Gaza. They said that they killed a 23-year-old woman, pregnant, with her toddler. Do you have any comments on that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah. I mean, overall we’ve been watching this as it has been unfolding, and it’s a very concerning situation that has taken place in Gaza. Overall, we condemn the launching of missile attacks into Israel and call for an end to the destructive violence. We’ve seen reports that 180 or so rocket attacks have taken place, shot from Gaza into Israel, and we fully support Israel’s right to defend itself and to take actions to prevent provocations of that nature.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But this last round of bombardment, Israeli bombardment, actually began by the Israelis. It was not Hamas that started this latest round.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Look, I’m not going to get into how this thing started. Let’s not forget that Hamas bears ultimate responsibility for the dire humanitarian situation in Gaza. It’s a tremendous concern of ours.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay. Let me ask you about the peace efforts that are taking place. Now, there are reports that the unveiling of the plan, the deal of the century, has been pushed back. Can – do you have any comment on that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I would object to the premise of the question, your statement in that question. We have not unveiled the peace plan at this time. That will be unveiled by Mr. Kushner and Mr. Greenblatt when it is ready. And when it’s ready to be unveiled, they will unveil it.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: And lastly, last week you guys released some funds or some aid to the Palestinian Authority. I believe it was sent to the security forces. Can you share with us the amount of that aid? Is that a one-time thing, or is it part of the sort of unfreezing of the funds to the Palestinian Authority?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I’m going to have to get back to you on that issue. I don’t have any information for you on that today. Okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Russia?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Hi.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Russia?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay, two quick questions. First of all, on the sanctions that were announced yesterday, one of the requirements for Russia to avoid further sanctions is to allow inspections to make sure that they’re not using chemical weapons. Does the State Department have any reason to think that Russia is going to allow that? And is the U.S. expecting Russia to allow that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I mean, that’s asking us to look into the future, and we don’t know what the future holds. I think that’s a hypothetical question, so I don’t have an answer for you.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But the U.S. is fully expecting to have some kind of inspections take place, then, according to this law?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have anything for you on that today, and I’m not going to get ahead of anything that happens in the near future. Okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay, well, that’s what the law says.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yep.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But my other question is on the – is the U.S. then currently preparing for this next round of sanctions, then?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: As you well know, we don’t forecast sanctions. We have complied with the law in announcing those sanctions just yesterday, and we will comply with the law going forward, of course, as we always would. Okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Heather, just to get a follow-on on that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, sure. Hi, Gardiner.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So you – in the case of Iran, you have this 12-point plan of what behavior you want the government to implement in order to lift sanctions. You have a whole series of sanctions that are now revolving around Russia having to do with CAATSA, Magnitsky, now weapons. Can you give us some global sense of what these sanctions are trying to achieve from an American foreign policy perspective? What are you looking for from Russia? Why do we have sanctions on them? What’s your goal? And when’s the – when’s the periodicity of these things?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Sure. I think I would start by answering that question with this: That we approach every country very differently. Every country that we have a relationship or even countries that we don’t have relationships with are viewed through a separate lens. So what may be appropriate for one country is maybe not necessarily appropriate for another country.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    The United States Government has determined that sanctions can be a very effective tool in trying to bring various governments to the table to negotiate with us or try to encourage countries to comply or to return to a better set of behaviors. So this is one tool that we have in a very big toolkit. The State Department works closely with Treasury and OFAC and other entities to implement, study, and enforce sanctions, and that is part of what you’ve seen yesterday. Let’s remember that one of the things that has brought North Korea to the table is sanctions. And we have found sanctions to be very effective in many cases around the world. So the U.S. Government looks at that as an overall tool.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Right, so North Korea is a great example. Sanctions – as a result, you want to get rid of their nuclear program. Again, Iran, you’ve got a list of 12 things. Venezuela, you’ve got sort of a clear list. I’m trying to understand what your policy is with Russia. You’ve got a variety – myriad now of sanctions. What’s your goal?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Well, I think the President has addressed this and so has Secretary Pompeo. We’d like to have a better relationship with the Russian Government, recognizing that we have a lot of areas of mutual concern. It is a major country; we are a major country as well. And so when you have that, you are forced to have to have conversations with other governments. And sanctions is a way that we can try to encourage better behavior on the part of government. Now, I’m speaking in a broad-based sense, but that’s one way that we can encourage better behavior. Okay.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Same topic?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Could I ask a follow-up on that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: (Off-mike)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Sure. What is your name, miss?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: My name’s Emily, I’m from Buzzfeed News.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Emily, hi.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So if these sanctions are in part meant to encourage better behavior with Russia, Russia today came out and said that these sanctions – sort of as was expected – that these sanctions are not in keeping with the spirit of Helsinki. So – and I understand these sanctions were – they’re in keeping with the law, et cetera, but does this – or to put it a different way, is the cooperation that was sort of established at Helsinki – is the U.S. Government still planning on having that with Russia after yesterday’s sanctions?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: We tend to believe that dialogue is always an important issue. I think I had just addressed this with Gardiner, and that is trying to build a better relationship with countries that we need to cooperate with or we need to be able to have relations with, and that would be one example.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: And then just on the other point on the second tranche, and I don’t mean to get you into hypotheticals, but yesterday at the briefing they did say that if Russia doesn’t do certain things, including sort of admit wrongdoing and say that they weren’t going to do it again, that there would be second tranche. And today, Russia said this is ridiculous, we didn’t do that. So if they keep that position for the next 90 days, won’t there – won’t there, under the law, have to be a second tranche?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: And that’s why I would go back and say that we will comply with the law. We are well aware of what the law contains; we will comply with the law. But I’m not going to get ahead of what could happen 90 days from now. Okay.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: The same topic – same topic?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: (Off-mike)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Janne, go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Thank you, thank you, Heather. On North Korean and South Korean issues.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Okay.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: And – recently, South Korea imported North Korean coal. What is the U.S. position on the smuggling of North Korean coal into South Korea? Is that – do you think this is the – South Korea has violated sanctions?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I think – we’d say this: that we have a great relationship with the Government of South Korea. My understanding is that they are looking into reports of this. We encourage all countries to maintain sanctions, and to not skirt sanctions and make sure that sanctions are adhered to.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But two days ago, John Bolton, national security advisor, and South Korean national security advisor Chung Eui-yong, they had telephone conversation and John Bolton said that he trust or believe in the South Korean Government. What does it mean that you trust the South Korean Government, so --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Well, the Government of the Republic of Korea is an ally and longstanding partner of ours, and we closely coordinate with that government.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But allies – but they do something behind the United States is smuggling something else, so how you going to trust them?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Look, we trust when they say that they will investigate that they will investigate. We closely coordinate with them. They’ve been longstanding allies and partners, and we have a strong relationship with them.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Are you still investigations or waiting --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have anything more for you on that, okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: All right, thank you.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Thanks.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Kylie, go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So there’s been discussion of potentially having another meeting with North Korea. Has there been any progress on that that --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: We have no meetings, no travel plans to announce today, and by the way, we just got back from a long flight, which I will remind you was a very long flight. Headed over to Asia, a long flight back. We’re okay with being here for a while.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: All right.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Okay. Hi. Go ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well wait, can I just follow up real quick on that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Just hold on, hold on, hold on. He asked first. Go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Oh, I’m sorry.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Yes. So about the North Korean coal, yeah. And South Korean Government is going to announce the result of investigation about North Korean coal smuggling maybe later today. So now the issue is that – whether the United States is going to apply the second boycott to the Korean companies, which it appears to be violated the sanctions. So I just wonder whether you are going to apply the secondary boycott to the companies.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I think I just answered that, that the investigation was initiated by the Government of South Korea, and we will wait to hear from them on any announcements with regard to that, okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    And we’re going to have to wrap it up in just a minute. Elise, go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Just on the – you said there’s nothing new to announce. Are the delegations trying to get another negotiating session? Like your team in Asia, are they trying to get another negotiating session together with the North Koreans?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Look, I mean, I can tell you we continue to have conversations virtually every day, every other day or so --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: With the North Koreans?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: -- with the North Koreans, and when I say “conversations,” that can be by phone, that can be my message, that can be by email. Those are – they take different forms, those conversations do. So we continue to have conversations with the government. When – if and when we have travel announcements to make, I will certainly let you know, but we have nothing yet.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But I mean, obviously that you’ll make those announcements, but I’m just wondering if like – if there is efforts being made to put together another negotiating session.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have anything for you on that right now.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Can I have one question on the sanctions?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Okay? Okay. Sir, go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Yeah. Just to follow up, you said you have nothing planned, but Mr. Bolton mentioned that in the letter that Secretary Pompeo gave to Foreign Minister Ri, there was an offer to meet. Has North Korea responded to that offer yet?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have any information for you on that. This was a letter from the President to Chairman Kim, so I don’t have any visibility on what was actually in that letter or what conversations the White House may or may not be having. I’d have to refer you to the White House for anything on that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So you can confirm that there was an offer?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I can confirm there was a letter. Anything that the White House has said about that or Ambassador Bolton has said about that, I’d refer you back to them on those matters. When I have something to let you know, I certainly would be happy to.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Okay, last question.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Two days ago, President Trump claimed most Chinese students in the United States are spies. I’m not asking you to comment on what he said, but State Department as a agency to issue visa to Chinese students, do you share the view – do you think most Chinese students in the United States are spies?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, I don’t have the President’s comments in front of me. I have not seen those comments, so I would hesitate to comment on his comments without having read it and had the full context. As you are well aware, we have many Chinese students studying in the United States. We have strong people-to-people ties with the Government of China, but of course there are concerns with some who might come into the United States and try to pick up some of our technology and other information and bring it back home for reasons that the United States Government would be concerned about. But we have a strong relationship with China and we enjoy having students studying in the United States from China, and I’ll just leave it at that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Okay, thanks. We’ve got to go, guys. We’ll see you soon.

          Kommentar zu Mein Gespräch mit einem Linken: Die Angst vor der Nation von Tom      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Die Linken in Deutschland sind relativ harmlos. In den USA wo die Demokraten, die Linken repräsentieren oder besser gesagt die Marxisten und wo im November die Zwischenwahlen stattfinden, muss man sich deren Wahlversprechen auf der Zunge zergehen lassen. In den USA wird es zu einem Bürgerkrieg kommen; diskutiert wird in den Blogs nur noch der Zeitpunkt. Die Wahlversprechen, die meiner Meinung nach das kommunistische Manifest abbilden, hier in einer Übersetzung aus dem Blog leftcult.com: Die erschreckende Wahrheit dessen, was Demokraten versprechen, wenn sie im November gewinnen - WATCH at REAL.video 08.08.2018 / Von Ethan Huff Mike Adams, der Gesundheitsranger, stellte vor kurzem eine Liste der 10 Sachen zusammen, die Demokraten versprechen einzulösen wenn sie die Zwischenwahlen gewinnen - und alle führen zu der Gesamtzerstörung unseres Landes. Hier ist die Liste, wie in einem Clip, den er für REAL.video zusammengestellt hat: 1) Elizabeth "Fauxcahontas" Warren will Ihre Steuern auf 50 Prozent Ihres Einkommens erhöhen. "Sie denken, es ist schlecht für dich, mehr von deinem eigenen Geld zu behalten", warnt Adams. 2) Demokraten wollen "die Grenzen des Landes öffnen und Amerika mit illegalen Ausländern überschwemmen, denen das Wahlrecht gewährt wird, und die natürlich auch alle Ansprüche genießen werden, die Staaten wie Kalifornien ihnen geben wollen", warnt Adams und stellt fest, dass sie auch die Einwanderungs- und Zollbehörde (ICE) abschaffen wollen. "Demokraten wollen buchstäblich, dass jeder, der auftaucht, Amerikaner wird", sagt er. "Warum glauben die Demokraten, dass niemand die Regeln befolgen sollte?" 3) Alle Gefängnisse zu schließen ist eine andere demokratische Tagesordnung, vermutlich, ihre eigene Unterseite der Wähler aufzubauen. "Das ist Wahnsinn", sagt Adams. "So sehr wir in unserem Gefängnissystem auch viel staatsanwaltschaftlichen Missbrauch haben.... im Großen und Ganzen sind die Gefängnisse mit Schuldigen gefüllt. Gefängnisse sind so geschaffen, dass gewalttätige Menschen nicht herumlaufen und dich und deine Kinder ermorden." 4) Demokraten wollen alles Privateigentum und alle Unternehmen beseitigen und das Land in eine sozialistische "Utopie" verwandeln. Sie wollen auch alle Gewinne eliminieren, ebenso wie das freie Marktsystem insgesamt. "Das hat Venezuela übrigens getan, und sieh dir an, was mit ihnen passiert ist", erklärt Adams. "Wenn du denkst, dass Verhungern großartig ist, wähle die Demokraten diesen Herbst." 5) Wenn wir schon dabei sind, lasst uns alle Nationen loswerden und uns zum Globalismus bekehren. Dies ist ein weiteres Element der Demokratischen Partei, die die nationale Souveränität hasst, weil sie ihre Bemühungen, alles und jeden zu kontrollieren, ausschließt. Sie wollen "globale Waffenkontrolle, globale Impfungen, globale psychiatrische Medikamente für Kinder, globale Verbote von Vitamin C, massive Mobilfunkstrahlung, globale Kontrolle der Goldversorgung, globale Fiatversklavung" und so viel mehr, sagt Adams. "Globalismus ist ein Gift für die Menschheit; aber Demokraten lieben globalistische Ideen", fügt Adams hinzu und warnt auch vor den gefälschten Abkommen und Verträgen über den Klimawandel, die, weil der Kongress sie nicht billigen wird, völlig nutzlos sind. "Sie hassen Amerika buchstäblich", sagt Adams über die Demokraten. 6) Volle autoritäre Zensur des Internets ist ein weiterer demokratischer Plan, einschließlich der Beschlagnahme von Domainnamen. "Es gibt nicht eine einzige Person auf der linken Seite, die sich dagegen ausgesprochen hat", sagt Adams über den jüngsten Abruf konservativer Inhalte von YouTube, Facebook, Spotify und anderen technischen Plattformen. "Sie glauben nicht an die Redefreiheit. Sie glauben nicht an die Debatte", fügt er über die demokratische Denkweise hinzu. 7) Präsident Trump wird ins Gefängnis geworfen, wenn Demokraten gewinnen - oder noch schlimmer. "Sie sagen, dass er jetzt ein Spion ist und dass er Verrat begeht", sagt Adams. 8) Demokraten sind begierig, mit Russland in den Krieg zu ziehen, was bedeutet, dass sie Atombomben starten werden, wenn sie gewinnen. "Sie wollen keinen Frieden, sie wollen Krieg mit Russland", sagt Adams über die Linke. "Jeder, der Frieden mit Russland sucht, wird als Verräter oder Verräter Amerikas bezeichnet. Wann hat die Linke plötzlich angefangen, Atombomben zu lieben?" 9) Patrioten, Trump-Anhänger und jeder, der nicht mit der linken Agenda einverstanden ist, wird ein Ziel der Gewalt werden, wenn die Demokraten gewinnen. "Wenn Sie für Demokraten stimmen, begehen Sie Selbstmord", warnt Adams. "Sie stimmen für die Zerstörung Ihres Lebens." 10) Schließlich wollen Demokraten die Polizei abschalten, weil sie Bullen, Recht, Ordnung und Anstand hassen.

          Waiting for a new deputy at the Vatican Secretariat of State      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Vatican City, Aug 9, 2018 / 04:00 pm (CNA).- Pope Francis’ trip to Ireland for the World Meeting of Families will be likely his first international trip not to include the “sostituto,” or deputy, of the Vatican Secretariat of State among the papal entourage.
 
Since the former “sostituto”, Giovanni Angelo Becciu, was created cardinal and promoted to lead the Congregation for the Cause of Saints in May, the position has been vacant.
 
The pope was expected to fill the position once Becciu’s mandate formally ended at the end of June, but he did not do that.
 
Now that the trip to Ireland is approaching, reports are spreading that Pope Francis might appoint Becciu’s successor by the end of the week.
 
The position of the “sostituto” is important for the functioning of the Secretariat of State and the entire Roman Cura.
 
According to Pastor bonus, the apostolic constitution that defines the tasks and competencies of Curial offices, the “sostituto” is at the helm of the first section of the Secretariat of State, the section on “general affairs.”
 
In practice, the “sostituto” works as a coordinator, and as a link between the pope and the secretary of state, becoming in many cases the person closest to the pope.
 
This is likely the reason Pope Francis wants to ponder carefully who will be the next “sostituto.”
 
On the other hand, the competencies of the “sostituto” might change some when Praedicate evangelium, the anticipated apostolic constitution updating the governance structures of the Vatican, is published and takes effect, and the pope might be waiting for the promulgation of that document before appointing a person to the role.
 
The Secretariat of State has already changed its shape under Pope Francis; the pope established in November a third section dedicated to the pastoral care of nuncios and other diplomatic personnel.
 
The newly established department took on the competencies of the Office for Pontifical Representatives, which was previously under the first section of the Secretariat. As the same time, the third section also absorbed some of the tasks generally entrusted to the first section, among them the presentation to the pope of three candidates for an nuncio position, and granting special permissions or delegations to nuncios.
 
The new “sostituto” will be called to work out a transition toward a new modus operandi of the Secretariat of State.
 
There has been a great deal of speculation about who will be picked for the job.
 
The “sostituto” is entrusted with general affairs, so it is not a diplomatic role, as is the Secretary for the Relations with States, who heads the Second Section. However, lately the “sostituto” have been from picked among the ranks of papal nuncios, as all of them have had experience and in its diplomatic work.
 
Since the position of the sostituto was created in 1831, there have been 20 deputies to the Secretary of State, and 17 of them were Italians. The tradition of an Italian “sostituto” was broken under John Paul II, who picked the Spanish Eduardo Martinez Somalo (1979 – 1988),  the Australian Edward Idris Cassidy (1988 – 1989) and the Argentinian Leonardo Sandri (2000 – 2007).
 
Since 1953, the “sostituto” has always had a past in the diplomatic service.
 
Will Pope Francis keep that tradition?
 
Vatican observers claim that the pope will likely choose an active nuncio for the position. Some have speculated that the pope might pick Archbishop Nicola Girasoli, nuncio to Peru, or Archbishop Giordano Caccia, nuncio to Philippines. Other reports say that the top candidate for the position might be Archbishop Bernardito Auza, Holy See Observer to the United Nations in New York.
 
It is also rumored that the pope might appoint Bishop Marcello Semeraro of Albano as “sostituto”- he is a long term friend of the pope, he is serving as secretary of the Council of Cardinals, and so he would be the well positioned to oversee Curia reform – including that of the Secretariat of State.
 
However, there is no consensus candidate within the Vatican corridors. Names circulate in conversations with Vatican officials, but they are considered to be, at best, possibilities.
 
Among the possibilities, there is a new entry who could represent a concrete option for the future: Archbishop Edgar Peña Parra, apostolic nuncio to Mozambique.
 
Archbishop Peña Parra fits many of Pope Francis’ priorities.
 
First, he is not Italian, and Francis seems keen to dispense with an overreliance on Italians.
 
Second, he comes from Venezuela: with his appointment, Pope Francis might further show his attention to the situation in that country, where every Church mediation in the messy political situation has thus far failed.
 
Third, he was apostolic nuncio to Pakistan from 2011 to 2015, a country to which Francis has paid particular attention, even appointing a cardinal from Pakistan at the last consistory.

Peña Parra therefore has a deep knowledge of two of the scenarios that Pope Francis deems important. In addition, his doctoral dissertation has become a reference point for study of human rights, an issue of importance to the pontiff.
 
At the moment, and for all of these reasons, the appointment of Archbishop Peña Parra is considered a strong possibility. However, Vatican sources have maintained that “the pope will make his decision alone,” and that “the pope can always surprise us.”
 
Much will be understood from the timing of the appointment: while it seems really likely that the pope will announce the appoint of the new “sostituto” by the end of the week, the decision can always be postponed to September, when vacation time is over and when the reform of the Curia should renewed in full swing.

          CORRUPCIÓN Y PODER      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
'La corrupción es inherente a la falta de límites al poder': Los escándalos de corrupción que últimamente vienen destapándose en América Latina, en general están asociados a gobiernos de izquierda, progresista o populistas, como los de Correa, Lula y los Kirchner, por no hablar del chavismo. No es casualidad que estos tipos de gobiernos sean los más ligados a grandes casos de corrupción. La razón fundamental para que la corrupción florezca en estos tipos de gobiernos tiene que ver con la falta de límites al poder del gobernante o, si se prefiere, al poder que vuelve a tener una dirigencia política que es un retroceso institucional a la época de las monarquías absolutas. En una conferencia que Hayek dictó en 1976 en el Instituto de Asuntos Públicos, Nueva Gales del Sur, titulada ¿Adónde va la democracia? Afirma: “El advenimiento de la democracia en el siglo pasado (habla del siglo XIX) provocó cambios decisivos en el ámbito de los poderes de gobierno. Durante siglos los esfuerzos habían sido dirigidos hacia la limitación de dichos poderes, y la evolución gradual de las constituciones no había servido a otro propósito que éste”, pero enseguida agrega: “Súbitamente se creyó que la limitación del gobierno por los representantes electos de la mayoría tornaba innecesario el control de los poderes gubernamentales, de modo que podía hacerse caso omiso de las distintas garantías constitucionales desarrolladas con el transcurso del tiempo”. Puesto en otras palabras, el esfuerzo de limitar el poder surgido de la democracia liberal dio paso a que ignoraran todo tipo de restricción aquellos que tenían una circunstancial mayoría de votos, volviéndose al tipo de gobierno de los días de las monarquías absolutas. La democracia degeneró en una competencia populista en la que el que tiene más votos se siente con derecho a no respetar los límites que debe tener todo gobierno. Basta recordar aquella famosa frase de Cristina Fernández, diciendo: si no les gusta, armen un partido político y ganen las elecciones, para advertir que para ellos el voto da derecho a todo. O sea, para este tipo de gobiernos, los votos dan derecho a ejercer el poder sin límites, lo que Hayek llamó la democracia ilimitada. El gran crecimiento económico a partir del siglo XIX tiene que ver no tanto con los inventos sino con la mejora en la calidad institucional de los países que adoptaron democracias liberales en que se restringía el poder de los monarcas. La nueva ola de democracias ilimitadas, en las que el voto de la mayoría es considerado como el pasaporte al poder absoluto del gobierno electo, nos retrotrae institucionalmente y eso impacta en el crecimiento económico. Por eso hay toda una corriente de análisis de la economía y las instituciones en que se analiza el marco institucional de los países para explicar su crecimiento o su decadencia. La decadencia está en los países con gobiernos que no tienen límites en el poder. La corrupción es consecuencia de esa decadencia institucional. ¿Cuándo hay corrupción? Cuando el gobernante tiene el poder de decidir arbitrariamente ganadores y perdedores dentro de una política económica. Cuando el ingreso de las personas no depende tanto de su capacidad de abastecer a sus semejantes de bienes y servicios de buena calidad, sino de los favores del funcionario público, surgen las razones para “comprar” el favor del funcionario público. Los controles de precios son un ejemplo claro de una de las puertas a la corrupción. Si la vida de mi empresa depende de que un funcionario público firme una autorización para que pueda aumentar los precios de mis productos, enseguida pueden aparecer las coimas para autorizar esos aumentos de precios de los cuales depende la vida de mi empresa. El funcionario pasa a tener el poder de “vender” la supervivencia de un sector o su muerte. Pero en el caso del kirchnerismo, tal vez el negocio de las autorizaciones de aumentos de precios haya sido un kiosco menor. El intervencionismo estatal fue lo más amplio posible para generar muchas fuentes de ingresos. Hoy todos hablamos de los cuadernos de la obra pública, pero atención que en la época kirchnerista se asignaron U$S 161.000 millones a subsidios económicos, de los cuales U$S 139.000 millones fueron destinados a subsidiar transporte y energía, donde hay sospechas tan grandes de corrupción como en la obra pública. Ni que hablar de los subsidios sociales, tema sobre el que vengo insistiendo que tienen que ser revisados. No puede ser que el kirchnerismo haya dejado un millón de beneficiarios de pensiones por invalides entre 2003 y 2015 sin que hubiese habido una guerra, un terremoto o un tsunami. Nuevamente, quien tiene el poder de otorgar esos subsidios, los otorga a gente que puede competir en las olimpíadas a cambio del correspondiente peaje. ¿Qué control puede uno esperar de un Congreso que tiene 80 empleados por cada senador y 24 empleados por cada diputado y dónde la biblioteca tiene 1.700 empleados? ¿Esos van a ser los que van a controlar al Ejecutivo? ¿Qué control puede uno esperar de un congreso de la provincia de Buenos Aires en el que se van a gastar $ 6.800 millones este año sin que el ciudadano sepa en qué se gasta ese dinero porque el presupuesto de la provincia de Buenos Aires es un secreto de estado? Y si vamos a niveles municipales el escándalo de los concejos deliberantes es parecido pero en escala menor a los del Congreso de la Nación y de las provincias. Todo este negocio de la política tiene un costo que hay que mantener y ese costo se transforma en impuestos que deben pagar los sufridos contribuyentes. Pero como además la política se ha transformado en un negocio, hay que conseguir el favor del votante ofreciéndole todo tipo de subsidios y “beneficios” de un estado benefactor que en realidad es una pantalla para esconder la corrupción más descarada que uno pueda imaginar. No es casualidad que en Argentina hayamos llegado a tener 8 millones de personas que trabajamos en blanco y 20 millones de personas que todos los meses pasan a buscar su cheque por la ventanilla de pagos del estado. El destrozo económico que genera ese corrupto armado institucional es enorme. Las razones son varias: 1) se dilapidan miles de millones de pesos de los contribuyentes en mantener el aparato del funcionamiento de la política. Hay que nombrar en cargos públicos a punteros que nunca van a sus puestos de trabajo y se quedan “trabajando” en su provincia para el diputado o senador que los nombró, 2) ¿cómo se bancaba a la militancia de La Campora? Con miles de puestos de trabajo que son retribuciones a la “militancia” que paga el contribuyente, 3) los subsidios económicos dieron lugar a que se manejaran millones de dólares en barcos que traían gas a precios desorbitados y a que se manejaran fortunas en efectivo para subsidiar el transporte público, 4) mantener a miles de piqueteros, “inválidos” y demás beneficiarios de planes sociales tiene un costo fenomenal para el contribuyente. En definitiva, hay corrupción cuando en, nombre de la solidaridad social y los “precios justos”, los funcionarios públicos tienen poderes propios de la época de las instituciones arbitrarias de los monarcas absolutos. Con el Kirchner llegó a niveles impensados porque armaron toda su carrera política como si fuera una sociedad anónima cuyo objetivo fuera delinquir. No es casualidad que regalaran millones de jubilaciones a personas que nunca habían aportado, el fútbol para todos, las tarifas de servicios públicos baratas y demás “beneficios sociales”. Entretuvieron a la masa del pueblo con el televisor en cuotas y mientras tanto robaban a cuatro manos. Pero esto que estamos viviendo hoy con los famosos cuadernos, debería dejar como enseñanza que detrás de toda política populista no solo se esconde una fenomenal ineficiencia económica que tiene como contrapartida impuestos, regulaciones y controles que espantan la inversión y retrasan el nivel de vida del país. Además, es la pantalla perfecta para la corrupción. La ineficiencia económica es doble. Por el lado de la ineficiencia económica y por el lado de lo que se roba detrás de la escenografía de las políticas de solidaridad social. La lección debería ser no creer que el voto soluciona todo. No es cierto que con la democracia se come, se cura y se educa. Se come, se cura y se educa con calidad institucional. Limitando el poder de los gobernantes Con el voto sin restricciones al gobierno se puede volver al poder las monarquías absolutas y despóticas. Limitar el poder del estado, es decir el grado de discrecionalidad con que los funcionarios declaran ganadores y perdedores de la economía, debe ser reducido a su mínima expresión. Por algo todos estos populistas hablan con desprecio del mercado y se erigen en la reserva moral del país que van a redistribuir con justicia social la riqueza que se genera. Es su manera de conseguir poder político vía los votos para robar y la excusa para establecer regulaciones, subsidios y demás controles que son la puerta para abrir el negocio de la corrupción. La combinación de la ineficiencia económica que genera el populismo junto con la corrupción que conlleva el populismo, hacen económicamente inviable un país, destruyen la cultura del trabajo y las mafias terminan apoderándose del control del monopolio de la fuerza, llegándose a extremos como es el caso del chavismo en Venezuela. El origen del mal está en no limitar el poder del estado. Una vez que no se limita al gobierno, la corrupción se enquista en el poder y eso lleva a violar los derechos individuales. Y si hay que matar a un fiscal, se lo mata con tal que la verdad no salga a la luz. Esperemos que, a partir de estos cuadernos, en la Argentina tengamos un Nuremberg de la corrupción. Tal vez sea un buen punto de partida como base fundacional de una nueva Argentina. O de la Argentina que una vez fuimos hasta que llegó el populismo con su ineficiencia y corrupción. http://economiaparatodos.net/la-corrupcion-es-inherente-a-la-falta-de-limites-al-poder/

El caraquista German Marquez lanzo inning perfecto en MLB

Fue la primera vez que esto sucede en el Coors Field de Denver, considerado un paraíso para los bateadores.

El derecho (reserva en venezuela de Leones del caracas) de lo Rockies de Colorado, Germán Márquez, tiró un inning inmaculado -tres ponches seguidos de tres pitcheos cada uno- en el cuarto inning contra los Piratas la tarde del miércoles.

Márquez ponchó a la parte alta del orden de los Piratas — Corey Dickerson y los dominicanos Starling Marte y Gregory Polanco – y se convirtió así en el segundo pitcher en la historia de los Rockies que logra esa rareza.

El relevista zurdo Rex Brothers lo hizo el 14 de junio del 2014 en San Francisco ante Michael Morse, Brandon Crawford y el venezolano Grégor Blanco

Esa clase de entradas son muy poco común. En el 2017 hubo ocho y el de Márquez fue el tercero de esta temporada.

          Waiting for a new deputy at the Vatican Secretariat of State      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Vatican City, Aug 9, 2018 / 04:00 pm (CNA).- Pope Francis’ trip to Ireland for the World Meeting of Families will be likely his first international trip not to include the “sostituto,” or deputy, of the Vatican Secretariat of State among the papal entourage.
 
Since the former “sostituto”, Giovanni Angelo Becciu, was created cardinal and promoted to lead the Congregation for the Cause of Saints in May, the position has been vacant.
 
The pope was expected to fill the position once Becciu’s mandate formally ended at the end of June, but he did not do that.
 
Now that the trip to Ireland is approaching, reports are spreading that Pope Francis might appoint Becciu’s successor by the end of the week.
 
The position of the “sostituto” is important for the functioning of the Secretariat of State and the entire Roman Cura.
 
According to Pastor bonus, the apostolic constitution that defines the tasks and competencies of Curial offices, the “sostituto” is at the helm of the first section of the Secretariat of State, the section on “general affairs.”
 
In practice, the “sostituto” works as a coordinator, and as a link between the pope and the secretary of state, becoming in many cases the person closest to the pope.
 
This is likely the reason Pope Francis wants to ponder carefully who will be the next “sostituto.”
 
On the other hand, the competencies of the “sostituto” might change some when Praedicate evangelium, the anticipated apostolic constitution updating the governance structures of the Vatican, is published and takes effect, and the pope might be waiting for the promulgation of that document before appointing a person to the role.
 
The Secretariat of State has already changed its shape under Pope Francis; the pope established in November a third section dedicated to the pastoral care of nuncios and other diplomatic personnel.
 
The newly established department took on the competencies of the Office for Pontifical Representatives, which was previously under the first section of the Secretariat. As the same time, the third section also absorbed some of the tasks generally entrusted to the first section, among them the presentation to the pope of three candidates for an nuncio position, and granting special permissions or delegations to nuncios.
 
The new “sostituto” will be called to work out a transition toward a new modus operandi of the Secretariat of State.
 
There has been a great deal of speculation about who will be picked for the job.
 
The “sostituto” is entrusted with general affairs, so it is not a diplomatic role, as is the Secretary for the Relations with States, who heads the Second Section. However, lately the “sostituto” have been from picked among the ranks of papal nuncios, as all of them have had experience and in its diplomatic work.
 
Since the position of the sostituto was created in 1831, there have been 20 deputies to the Secretary of State, and 17 of them were Italians. The tradition of an Italian “sostituto” was broken under John Paul II, who picked the Spanish Eduardo Martinez Somalo (1979 – 1988),  the Australian Edward Idris Cassidy (1988 – 1989) and the Argentinian Leonardo Sandri (2000 – 2007).
 
Since 1953, the “sostituto” has always had a past in the diplomatic service.
 
Will Pope Francis keep that tradition?
 
Vatican observers claim that the pope will likely choose an active nuncio for the position. Some have speculated that the pope might pick Archbishop Nicola Girasoli, nuncio to Peru, or Archbishop Giordano Caccia, nuncio to Philippines. Other reports say that the top candidate for the position might be Archbishop Bernardito Auza, Holy See Observer to the United Nations in New York.
 
It is also rumored that the pope might appoint Bishop Marcello Semeraro of Albano as “sostituto”- he is a long term friend of the pope, he is serving as secretary of the Council of Cardinals, and so he would be the well positioned to oversee Curia reform – including that of the Secretariat of State.
 
However, there is no consensus candidate within the Vatican corridors. Names circulate in conversations with Vatican officials, but they are considered to be, at best, possibilities.
 
Among the possibilities, there is a new entry who could represent a concrete option for the future: Archbishop Edgar Peña Parra, apostolic nuncio to Mozambique.
 
Archbishop Peña Parra fits many of Pope Francis’ priorities.
 
First, he is not Italian, and Francis seems keen to dispense with an overreliance on Italians.
 
Second, he comes from Venezuela: with his appointment, Pope Francis might further show his attention to the situation in that country, where every Church mediation in the messy political situation has thus far failed.
 
Third, he was apostolic nuncio to Pakistan from 2011 to 2015, a country to which Francis has paid particular attention, even appointing a cardinal from Pakistan at the last consistory.

Peña Parra therefore has a deep knowledge of two of the scenarios that Pope Francis deems important. In addition, his doctoral dissertation has become a reference point for study of human rights, an issue of importance to the pontiff.
 
At the moment, and for all of these reasons, the appointment of Archbishop Peña Parra is considered a strong possibility. However, Vatican sources have maintained that “the pope will make his decision alone,” and that “the pope can always surprise us.”
 
Much will be understood from the timing of the appointment: while it seems really likely that the pope will announce the appoint of the new “sostituto” by the end of the week, the decision can always be postponed to September, when vacation time is over and when the reform of the Curia should renewed in full swing.

Suecia: del paraíso socialista al paraíso de la sharia

********
Una de las más manidas maneras de los izquierdistas para defender el socialismo como opción viable y deseable, abismalmente diferenciado de su primo hermano el comunismo, es esgrimir orondos en su pedestal de moralina a la socialdemocracia nórdica como un imbatible ejemplo de tolerancia, humanitarismo y prosperidad.
********

Por Armando de Armas
9 de agosto 2018


La socialdemocracia sueca, en su empeño de dominio político y cultural, se dotó en 1972 de un mamotreto que sería algo así como una biblia moderna: La Familia del futuro: una política socialista para la familia.

Para aplicar a la vida cotidiana de los suecos la biblia sociata, se han invertido ingentes cantidades de dinero cuyo fin último es la felicidad por vía de procurar que los individuos se desvincularan de las estructuras familiares por considerarlas anticuadas y opresivas.

El objetivo era que los padres ya mayores se liberaran de sus hijos, y los hijos adolescentes de sus padres. El Estado como Papá y Mamá en busca de un ciudadano aséptico, moralmente superior por su alejamiento del alma; esa antigualla. Laicismo. Libertad. Muerte a la tradición. Entes autónomos totales, esos serían los suecos.

Pero en 2017 la televisión sueca (SVT) decidió censurar la popular serie de televisión de los años setenta Pippa Mediaslargas (Pippi Longstocking​) para, mire Ud, no ofender a refugiados e inmigrantes.

La cadena pública eliminó comentarios del entrañable personaje que consideraba “racistas”, como “rey negro” o “hacer el chino”. Así la pequeña pelirroja debía referirse a su padre como “rey”, y no “rey negro”. Después de la supervisión, los censores socialistas eliminaron la escena en la que la protagonista juega a “hacer el chino” estirando la piel alrededor de sus ojos. “Vemos que nuestro grupo objetivo es el público infantil y creemos que puede ser interpretado como hiriente o despreciativo para los niños que vean y escuchen esto”, señaló en un comunicado la directora del departamento de venta de programas de SVT, Paulette Rosas Hott.

“Queremos hacer todo lo que podamos para que la gente no se sienta ofendida”, explicó el director ejecutivo de Saltkråkan, Nils Nyman.

(Suecia colapsa ante el islamismo.)

Liberales e izquierdistas reivindican el socialismo nórdico como una opción viable frente al socialismo real de Cuba, Venezuela, Corea del Norte y la antigua Europa del Este. Pero lo fundamental que escapa al público no avisado, víctima del mensaje de estos ideólogos, es el hecho de que el supuesto éxito del modelo nórdico, socialdemócrata o liberal, esconde en su seno el gran peligro para el mundo moderno y que no sería otro que el del inefable hombre sin atributos, ese que magistralmente retratara el autor austriaco Robert Musil en una inconclusa novela en dos volúmenes, escrita entre 1930 y 1943.

Durante décadas, el Leviatán socialdemócrata ha ido extendiendo por la sociedad sueca una mentalidad dominada por el materialismo, que reduce la vida a la satisfacción física, hace del ciudadano un ente cuya máxima aspiración es tener todos los orificios llenos, expande la anemia moral e induce al relativismo respecto a los temas trascendentales.

De modo que la indiferencia religiosa marca la vida pública y privada: el socialismo como espíritu, Google como Dios. Lo que se manifiesta mediante la presencia permanente del Estado en todas las actividades de la vida, convirtiendo a familias y comunidades en meros recibidores de servicios sociales.

Suecia ha sido el país que más promueve el aborto de manera pública y gratuita, y ha convertido la eutanasia en un derecho básico. El feminismo y la ideología de género, que se impone por demás en el resto de Europa y en EE.UU, rigen descaradamente en el país nórdico, junto al pacifismo a todo trance en política exterior, y el multiculturalismo en política social.

Con esta ideología a todo trapo, faltaba más, el paso siguiente fue extender decididamente el Estado de Bienestar a los miles de inmigrantes que acudían a la llamada de los subsidios y las ayudas suecas, pero dotados de una cultura ajena a la tolerancia y, en muchos casos, dominados no por el socialismo como espíritu y Google como Dios, sino por una divinidad furibunda e implacable que manda a matar al infiel.

El humanitarismo oficial sueco sigue favoreciendo la llegada de inmigrantes ajenos por completo a la sociedad sueca, y no sabe o no quiere enfrentar el radicalismo religioso islamista. El resultado es una sociedad paralizada por el dogmatismo multicultural, por el relativismo moral y por el buenismo como sustitutos de los medievales dogmas religiosos. Una sociedad que bajo ninguna circunstancia permitiría la cruz cristiana en las escuelas, o la oración, u otra expresión pública de religiosidad occidental, pero que sin embargo, maravillas de la rolerancia socialdemócrata, se postra sin remilgos ante el islamismo no ya como religión total sino como sistema político totalitario.

(Socialdemocracia con sharia.)

De modo que, según publica George Chaya en Infobae, Estocolmo se ha convertido en la primera capital europea donde se impone la sharia.

Un informe del gobierno sueco que recoge el diario Sharq al-Awsat, concluye que el número de áreas denominadas "zonas de alta peligrosidad" por la aplicación de la sharia abiertamente, creció a 62 en el primer semestre de 2017 sobre las 55 censadas en diciembre de 2016.

Chaya cita a un experto en investigación sobre países desestabilizados, ganador en 2011 de la Orden de la Medalla de los Serafines de Suecia, Johan Patrick Engellau, que por demás ha trabajado con organismos como Naciones Unidas y varias ONG europeas en materia de inmigración y refugiados, quien advirtió por carta a la Comisión de Seguridad Migratoria de la Unión Europea sobre la gravedad de la situación de Suecia.

"Me temo que es el final de la Suecia organizada, decente e igualitaria que hemos conocido hasta ahora. Personalmente, no me sorprendería si se produjera un conflicto en forma de guerra civil. En algunos lugares del país, la guerra civil probablemente ya ha comenzado, aunque la coalición de gobierno no parece haberse enterado", escribió Engellau.

Apreciación que apunta, por otro lado, a una inevitable reacción del péndulo ideológico y a un probable cambio de espíritu epocal que podría, quizá como única opción para salvar occidente tal cual le hemos conocido hasta el presente, pulverizar los paradigmas que han regido la vida desde la revolución francesa para acá.

Magnus Ranstorp, profesor e investigador sobre terrorismo y radicalización islámica del Colegio Nacional Sueco de Defensa, declaró a la televisión que "en las zonas más peligrosas de la capital, grupos radicalizados de la comunidad islámica han tomado el poder en las calles y están implantando su propia ley. En esas áreas, el sentido de la justicia y la paz se ve amenazado por el hecho de que la policía se está desmoronando y todo empeoró desde principios de este año. Estocolmo y toda Suecia se encuentran en una situación desesperante".

(Como reacción a la sharia, Suecia no es ajena a un aumento de las manifestaciones neonazis o de supremacistas blancos.)

El artículo de Infobae asevera que "unas 15 042 mujeres suecas han sufrido ataques sexuales durante el último año en zonas de la capital en que las autoridades admiten grandes áreas bajo la aplicación de la sharia (ley) islámica… Las bandas musulmanas armadas y los radicales islámicos están socavando la democracia sueca”, según el Servicio de Seguridad Nacional en un informe reciente.

Cifras aparte, lo que acá parecería cierto es que si el péndulo no regresa finalmente con esa fuerza más, la emblemática y buenista socialdemocracia sueca pudiera devenir emblemático paraíso de sharia, barbas, burka y portentosas hogueras lamiendo el nocturno cielo nórdico en la feroz faena de incinerar a los infieles.

Nota: La sharía o sharia, ​ también conocida como saría, charía o ley islámica​, es el cuerpo de derecho islámico que rige la conducta humana según los mandamientos de Dios.

Pero no fue el único al cual se sintió cómoda y complaciente:

EEUU pide a Bachelet que alce la voz ante los abusos en Cuba, Venezuela o Irán

Agencias
Washington
9 de Agosto de 2018

El Gobierno de EEUU demandó este jueves a Michelle Bachelet, próxima responsable de Derechos Humanos de la ONU, que alce la voz ante los abusos que se dan en países como Venezuela, Cuba o Irán, reportó EFE.

La embajadora estadounidense ante Naciones Unidas, Nikki Haley, reaccionó al nombramiento de Bachelet por medio de un comunicado, en el que urgió a la expresidenta chilena a "evitar los fracasos" que, a juicio de Washington, ha tenido la organización en materia de derechos humanos.

Haley recordó que EEUU decidió este año retirarse del Consejo de Derechos Humanos de la ONU en parte por su inacción ante "abusos extremos" en el continente americano, "en Venezuela y Cuba en particular".

Para la diplomática, la alta comisionada "puede tener una voz fuerte en estos asuntos clave, incluso cuando el Consejo de Derechos Humanos no cumple con su nombre".

Además, Haley defendió que Naciones Unidas tampoco ha respondido adecuadamente a graves crisis de derechos humanos en Irán, Corea del Norte, la República Democrática del Congo y otros lugares, ni ha puesto fin a su "obsesión desproporcionada con Israel".

"Le corresponde a la señora Bachelet denunciar estos fracasos en lugar de aceptar el statu quo. Esperamos que lo haga", insistió.

Tras varias amenazas, EEUU se retiró el pasado mes de junio del Consejo de Derechos Humanos, un organismo con sede en Ginebra muy criticado por la Administración estadounidense por sus condenas a Israel y por la participación de países con historiales cuestionables.

Bachelet fue nominada este miércoles por el secretario general de la ONU, António Guterres, para ocupar el puesto de alta comisionada para los Derechos Humanos y se espera que sea ratificada por la Asamblea General este viernes.

En el puesto sustituirá al jordano Zeid Ra'ad al Hussein, que ha criticado en numerosas ocasiones al presidente estadounidense, Donald Trump, por sus políticas migratorias o sus comentarios contra la prensa.

UN Watch manifiesta 'serias preocupaciones' por la nominación de Bachelet

Por su parte, la organización vigilante del desempeño de Naciones Unidas en la defensa de los derechos humanos UN Watch manifestó tener "serias preocupaciones" en torno a Michelle Bachelet, nominada para el puesto de Alta Comisionada para los Derechos Humanos de la ONU, debido a su historial irregular de defensa de estos derechos en los casos de Cuba, Nicaragua y Venezuela.

"No cabe duda de que la expresidenta de Chile es una política altamente educada e inteligente, que también cuenta con capacidades de negociación importantes", dijo Hillel C. Neuer, director ejecutivo de la ONG, que cuenta con carácter consultivo en el Consejo de Derechos Humanos de la ONU en Ginebra.

Sin embargo, sostuvo que "tiene un historial controversial cuando se trata de su apoyo a gobiernos que cometen abusos contra los derechos humanos como los de Cuba, Venezuela y Nicaragua".

"Necesitamos saber cómo planea lidiar con estas urgentes situaciones antes de que se vote sobre su candidatura", añadió la ONG.

Neuer citó acciones de Bachelet que, según él, dan lugar a "inquietantes interrogantes", como la visita que realizó a Cuba en 2018, durante la cual se reunió con el general Raúl Castro y pasó por alto algún encuentro con la oposición pacífica cubana; y los elogios a Fidel Castro tras la muerte del dictador y a Hugo Chávez.

También UN Watch mencionó que Bachellet se negó a condenar a Nicolás Maduro en 2017 tras protestas y el rompimiento del orden constitucional en el país y el silencio que ha mantenido la expresidenta sobre los asesinatos en Nicaragua.

El OCDH considera un 'grave error' la designación de Bachelet al frente de los derechos humanos en la ONU

DDC
Madrid
9 de Agosto de 2018

El Observatorio Cubano de Derechos Humanos (OCDH) consideró un "grave error" la designación de la expresidenta de Chile Michelle Bachelet como Alta Comisionada de la ONU para los Derechos Humanos.

"La elección de la expresidenta Bachelet para tan alta responsabilidad en Naciones Unidas es un grave error, debido al débil compromiso mostrado con los derechos fundamentales en el mundo durante sus dos mandatos presidenciales", señaló el OCDH en una declaración dirigida a las principales organizaciones internacionales de derechos humanos.

(Michelle Bachelet con Raúl Castro en La Habana. (AFP))

Entre los destinatarios se encuentran Amnistía Internacional, Human Rights Watch, Human Right Foundation, Freedom House y Civil Rights Defenders, a quienes la organización "sugerirá una futura declaración conjunta".

El Observatorio Cubano, con sede en Madrid, dijo que Bachelet "no ha demostrado empatía alguna" con las víctimas de violaciones de derechos humanos en América Latina "e incluso ha confraternizado con gobernantes acusados de violaciones similares".

"Todo ello —añadió—, a pesar de haber sido víctima de la represión durante la dictadura de Augusto Pinochet".

"Dada la ineficacia del sistema de derechos humanos de Naciones Unidas y la crisis del Consejo de Derechos Humanos de Ginebra, la designación de la expresidenta Bachelet no hace sino agravar el escenario actual, salvo que rectifique en su conducta liberticida", añadió el OCDH en la carta que enviará a las organizaciones citadas.

Carta abierta a la presidenta de Chile

Por Roberto Ampuero
año 2009

Excelentísima presidenta señora Michelle Bachelet: Antes que aborde el avión con destino a Cuba, permítame decirle que celebro la honestidad y calidad humana con que usted gobierna. No siempre concuerdo con sus decisiones pero, como muchos chilenos, me siento orgulloso de su figura. La razón es sencilla: usted es la primera mujer que llega a la presidencia, sufrió la represión, luchó por la recuperación de la democracia, y desde la Moneda se afana por promover la prosperidad y unidad nacional.

A partir del respeto que me merecen su imagen y la de sus padres es que le manifiesto mi desencanto por su decisión de soslayar, en su próxima visita a la isla, el carácter represivo del régimen castrista, de ignorar a los disidentes y de inaugurar la Feria del Libro de La Habana.

Es a mi juicio éticamente censurable, Presidenta, escudarse en el protocolo para ceder ante un tirano que detenta el poder desde 1959, ha sido condenado por violación a los derechos humanos en Naciones Unidas e impide elecciones libres. Alguien que sufrió prisión política, exigió solidaridad mundial y democracia para los chilenos no puede aterrizar en la isla y eludir a quienes se oponen pacíficamente al régimen que jamás ha tolerado agrupación opositora ni voto discordante en el Parlamento, y mantiene presos políticos.

Quien conoció el exilio no puede aplaudir a quien exilia y vitupera a los cubanos en la diáspora, gente que para entrar a su patria necesita visa gubernamental, tal como los chilenos que portaban la ignominiosa L en el pasaporte. Los cubanos de hoy son el espejo de nuestro pasado, Presidenta. Lo que demandaban los chilenos bajo Pinochet --plebiscito, derecho de asociación, prensa libre, derechos humanos, fin al exilio y la policía política-- es lo mismo que hoy anhelan los cubanos. ¿O usted cree que tras medio siglo de castrismo, ellos lo refrendarían en elecciones pluralistas? Si para los chilenos 17 años sin libertad fue demasiado, ¿por qué para los cubanos 50 años sin ella es insuficiente?

Tampoco se entiende, Presidenta, que usted inaugure la feria del libro en un país donde reina la censura y centenares de intelectuales --sean Vargas Llosa o Semprún, Zoé Valdés o Daína Chaviano, Arenas o Cabrera Infante, Padilla o Paquito D' Rivera-- están prohibidos. Allá hay además por lo menos tres libros de chilenos censurados: Confieso que he vivido, de Pablo Neruda; Persona non grata, de Jorge Edwards, y Nuestros años verde olivo, de quien le escribe. Como chileno me duele que mi presidenta legitime la política cultural de una dictadura que censura a chilenos. Tampoco resulta congruente que la líder de un gobierno integrado por socialdemócratas, democratacristianos y liberales se desentienda de la represión de los Castro contra personas de convicción socialdemócrata, liberal y democratacristiana.

Desembarcar en La Habana y hacer como si se llegara a San José de Costa Rica constituye el sepelio de la superioridad moral de la Concertación en materia de derechos humanos, despierta odiosas divisiones en Chile y mina la consistencia de los principios democráticos de su sector, que ha tornado la defensa de los derechos humanos en leitmotiv. No se puede condenar a Pinochet y celebrar al mismo tiempo a Castro. Que no la acompañen a la feria del libro novelistas chilenos de trascendencia debiera hacerla reflexionar sobre el tema.

Hay datos innegables: Medio siglo de totalitarismo, represión brutal contra opositores, prensa controlada, presos políticos, 8,000 muertes documentadas, exilio, isla en ruinas. Que nadie diga después:``¡Si lo hubiésemos sabido!''.

Hace 2,500 años el gran Tales de Mileto preguntaba: ''¿Qué cosas vemos raras veces?'' Respondía: ''Un tirano viejo''. Usted aspira a ver ahora al más viejo del mundo. Lo que Tales no aclaró fue que, aunque viejo y enfermo, el abrazo del tirano con un demócrata siempre mancha el poncho --o la guayabera-- de este último. ¿Sabe, Presidenta? Aún anhelo que usted exprese en La Habana lo que supongo anida en su alma de luchadora por la democracia: la convicción de que la defensa de los derechos humanos es indivisible y que éstos deben exigirse para todos. También para los cubanos.

Novelista chileno.

GERALDO RIVERA (GUEST CO-HOST): I agree with Jason's proposal, Dana, that immigration is the biggest issue because I think it encapsulates a lot of other things, like race and --

DANA PERINO (CO-HOST): Jobs.

RIVERA: Jobs and social class and all the rest of it. But which image is more powerful, the classic image of a brown wave overwhelming the southern border, all these immigrants coming and ruining our quality of life or ICE going into peaceable homes and going after you know, Diego Garcia, who has been a gardener here for 30 years and he married an American citizen and his children are all born here and they're in public school. Which image is more powerful and won't that in Jason's word --

PERINO: I guess it depends on where you sit, right so I think that the wave is definitely the more powerful image as the president paints it. But you know like earlier this week there was a story about a marine whose wife whose came here illegally 30 years ago or something. They have two children. He has served in Iraq three times. She got deported and that story, it was an AP story, but it doesn't get a ton of coverage, but if you get enough of those then you might actually start to see some push back.

[...]

GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): The difference between the right and the left are laws. The difference in the immigration debate is the stance of abiding a law. The conservatives, Republicans want you to abide by the law, the left are saying no, no, no, sanctuary, sanctuary. People are fleeing, refugees are fleeing countries precisely because there are laws missing. The reason why they're coming to America is because our laws create order which enables freedom that allows people to live their lives in safety. If you look at Somalia, which has no laws, the Congo, Venezuela, which is chaos, they have no laws. You got to get out.

          RT — First they came for Alex Jones… Now Facebook bans Venezuela news site      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Days after the purge of Alex Jones from social media, Big Tech seems to have found another suitable target for apparent censorship. Facebook suspended the page of a prominent leftist news site writing about Venezuela.
Venezuelanalysis.com, a left-leaning news site that writes from a pro-Bolivarian revolution stance, has been around since 2003. Critics, including the US government, brand it as a propaganda outlet of the government in Caracas. The site says it is funded by donations and lists as its team Western-born journalists and filmmakers, as well as endorsements from dozens of Western intellectuals, including Noam Chomsky, Tariq Ali and Oliver Stone.
Can't challenge the narrative. Heaven forbid.

Shit storm in the forecast.

This is censorship. There will of course be apologists for the corporate control of speech, on both the left and right, who will say, ‘It’s only censorship when the government does it!’. They are so wrong. When enormous companies that have arguably become the facilitators of public debate expel someone and his ideas because they find them morally repugnant, that is censorship. Powerful people have deprived an individual and his network of a key space in which they might propagate their beliefs. Aka censorship.

Last year, representatives of Facebook, Twitter, and Google were instructed on the US Senate floor that it is their responsibility to “quell information rebellions” and adopt a “mission statement” expressing their commitment to “prevent the fomenting of discord.”
“Civil wars don’t start with gunshots, they start with words,” the representatives were told. “America’s war with itself has already begun. We all must act now on the social media battlefield to quell information rebellions that can quickly lead to violent confrontations and easily transform us into the Divided States of America.”...
In a corporatist system of government, wherein there is no meaningful separation between corporate power and state power, corporate censorship is state censorship. Because legalized bribery in the form of corporate lobbying and campaign donations has given wealthy Americans the ability to control the US government’s policy and behavior while ordinary Americans have no effective influence whatsoever, the US unquestionably has a corporatist system of government. Large, influential corporations are inseparable from the state, so their use of censorship is inseparable from state censorship.

An all-out battle is raging against alternative views in the country that has positioned itself as the champion of the freedom of speech despite the fact that 90% of its media are controlled by just 6 companies. For comparison, in 1983, 90% of US media were controlled by 50 companies. Naturally, the trend negatively affects press freedom. According to the 2018 World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters Without Borders or RSF, the US dropped two positions compared to 2017, sliding to No. 45 overall. The role of competition has diminished while bias has become a norm. According to the 2017 Gallup/Knight Foundation Survey on Trust, Media and Democracy report, only 44 percent Americans say they can identify a news source that they believe reports the news objectively.

Mons. Ubaldo Santana, Arzobispo Emérito de Maracaibo (Venezuela), expresó su agradecimiento a Dios “por el rechazo del Senado argentino a la ley del aborto libre”.

“Sí es posible derrotar estas leyes anti-vida financiadas por ONGs y lobbys poderosos, y descaradamente promovidas por la ONU y el Parlamento europeo”, aseguró.

Por su parte, en México el Presidente de la plataforma Dilo Bien, Carlos Ramírez, celebró en Twitter que “¡ganó la vida!” y dio “¡gloria a Dios!”.

Rodrigo Iván Cortés, Presidente del Frente Nacional por la Familia de México, aseguró que la decisión del Senado en Argentina “es algo que tenemos que celebrar: ganó la vida”.

“Desde México lo que tenemos que hacer es seguir el ejemplo que se ha dado en Argentina, tenemos que dejar atrás la cultura de la muerte”, aseguró en un video publicado poco después de la votación en Argentina.

Ante reciente el intento de legalizar el aborto en el estado mexicano de Veracruz, Cortés alentó a “ponernos las pilas” y “hacer que esa ola celeste llegue hasta nuestra patria y defender la vida de los mexicanos”.

La portavoz de la plataforma española Derecho a Vivir, Dra. Gádor Joya, destacó en un comunicado que “hemos visto en Argentina una movilización ciudadana muy masiva y muy mantenida en el tiempo, defendiendo la vida de la de la madre y los niños que van a nacer. Por ello, los representantes políticos se han sentido respaldados y animados a la hora de votar en contra de un proyecto que atenta contra el derecho a la vida”.

Joya recordó la campaña de CitizenGO que recogió más de 100 mil firmas en todo el mundo en contra de la legalización del aborto en Argentina, y celebró que “los argentinos han hablado alto y claro para posicionarse en contra del aborto”.

“Lo han hecho sin miedo. Su lucha servirá de ejemplo para muchos países”, aseguró.

          Los obispos venezolanos piden el fin de la represión tras el «presunto atentado» contra Maduro      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


La Comisión de Justicia y Paz de la Conferencia Episcopal de Venezuela, consciente del momento crítico que vive nuestro país y tomando en cuenta muy especialmente la situación generada por el presunto atentado contra el mandatario Nicolás Maduro el pasado día 4 de agosto, considera lo siguiente:

1) Los hechos punibles que se investiguen, deben determinarse siguiendo los canales propios del proceso penal llevado por los Tribunales competentes que impliquen la existencia del delito y su tipificación, condiciones indispensables para determinar las responsabilidades y culpabilidades consiguientes.

2) Las aprehensiones a parlamentarios, funcionarios o ciudadanos en base a indicios o presunciones de la responsabilidad penal, no conllevan a detenciones arbitrarias, tratos crueles o inhumanos, torturas y desapariciones forzadas, supuestos que atentan a todo evento contra la integridad física y psíquica de los ciudadanos.

          Blast scattering soldiers makes Venezuela's Maduro look vulnerable: analysts      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

By Alexandra Ulmer

CARACAS (Reuters) - Deeply unpopular Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro looked keen to project himself as fully in charge of the crisis-ridden military, long a powerbroker, when he addressed its National Guard on Saturday.

One of the main avenues in the capital Caracas was sealed off, commemorative videos for the National Guard's 81st anniversary flashed on a big screen, and a suited Maduro with a yellow, blue and red presidential sash spoke surrounded by the military's top brass.

But just when the leftist leader was wrapping up by vowing OPEC member Venezuela's stricken economy would recover, his wife Cilia Flores scanned the sky, seemingly alarmed.

An explosion rocked the event close to the presidential stage, according to the government and three witnesses.

Maduro's wife recoiled, the camera shook, the state TV broadcast's audio was cut, and the camera abruptly panned out to hundreds of soldiers in sharp formation. But the image of martial lockstep was quickly shattered when a second drone hit a building nearby, as scores of soldiers scurried away before the live transmission ended and switched to reruns about the South American country's car census.

"This incident does make Maduro appear vulnerable but the truth remains that his circle has the power to crack down on enemies because they still control all the levers of power," said Raul Gallegos, associate director with the consultancy Control Risks.

"Whatever frailty comes across is compensated by the excuse Maduro now has to crack down on his internal enemies real or perceived," Gallegos said.

The incident failed to generate any wave of spontaneous support from traditional government backers, many of whom are reeling from hyperinflation, frequent water and power cuts, and food shortages.

Still, the government's adversaries warned of a possible crackdown after Maduro accused opponents of seeking to assassinate him with drones. Six people were detained as suspects, Venezuelan officials said on Sunday.

The suspects launched two drones laden with explosives over the outdoor rally, Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said. One was "diverted" by security forces while the second fell on its own and hit an apartment building, Reverol said.

Maduro initially blamed outgoing Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos and residents of the U.S. state of Florida for the attack. Colombia's Foreign Ministry in response said it "emphatically rejected" Maduro's accusations.

Venezuelan cartoonist EDO published a drawing showing terrified soldiers fleeing under the tagline "Run Forrest, the Empire is invading us!", in allusion to the film 'Forrest Gump' where Tom Hanks' character jogs across the United States.

"The stampede of the military personnel, broadcast live, leaves the armed forces and the military top brass looking very bad," said Hebert Garcia Plaza, a former general and member of Maduro's administration who turned on the government.

Open calls for military intervention have grown after massive anti-government protests last year failed to unseat Maduro and he was re-elected in a May vote widely decried as a sham.

Scores of soldiers have been detained on accusations of conspiring against Maduro or deserting, as they too sometimes struggle to eat three square meals a day.

Last year, a rogue Venezuelan police officer hijacked a helicopter and fired at government buildings in what he said was an action against a dictator. The officer was hunted down and killed by Venezuelan forces.

But in public, the top brass remains fiercely loyal to Maduro, a 55-year-old former bus driver and union leader who unlike his predecessor Hugo Chavez does not hail from the military.

As the economic crisis has worsened and his popularity has slipped, Maduro has handed the military sway over the lucrative mining, oil, and food import sectors to help keep his grip on power.

A little-known group called the "National Movement of Soldiers in T-shirts" claimed responsibility for Saturday's explosion. The group, which describes itself as uniting members of "the resistance" to Maduro, said it had planned to fly two drones but that snipers shot them down.

Maduro can take some solace in that a half-dozen bodyguards dashed on stage to cover him with bulletproof panels. A voice was heard saying "let's go, my leader" right before he was rushed away.

"That drone was coming for me but there was a shield of love," Maduro said on Saturday night. "I am sure I will live for many more years."

          Tòa án Tối cao Venezuela ra lệnh bắt cựu chủ tịch Quốc hội      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Dân biểu đối lập Juan Requesens nói chuyện với những người ủng hộ tại Caracas ngày 31/07/2018.

Tối cao Pháp viện Venezuela hôm qua 08/08/2018 đã ra lệnh bắt giữ ông Julio Borges, một trong những lãnh đạo phe đối lập và là cựu chủ tịch Quốc Hội, vì cáo buộc mưu toan ám sát tổng thống Nicolas Maduro bằng thiết bị bay không người điều khiển (drone) chứa chất nổ thứ Bảy tuần trước.

Ông Julio Borges đang sống lưu vong tại Bogota, thủ đô Colombia, không trả lời hãng tin Reuters. Ông bị cáo buộc trong bối cảnh chiến dịch trấn áp đối lập.

Trước đó vào ngày thứ Ba 7/8, dân biểu Juan Requesens, cựu lãnh tụ phong trào phản kháng của sinh viên, tố cáo tổng thống trước Quốc hội : « Rất nhiều người anh em của chúng tôi phải sống lưu vong, số khác đã về với đất vì bị sát hại, bị ông Nicolas sát hại (…). Hôm nay tôi có thể phát biểu trước quý vị, nhưng ngày mai thì không biết được ».

Không chờ đến hôm sau, ngay tối đó ông Requesens đã bị tình báo Venezuela bắt giữ, và chính quyền đến hôm qua mới xác nhận việc này. 

Phe đối lập Venezuela lo ngại chính quyền lợi dụng vụ ám sát hụt ông Nicolas Maduro để tung ra một đợt đàn áp mới. Công tố viên trưởng Tarak Saab hôm qua loan báo có 19 người liên can đến vụ tấn công trên, trong đó có 6 người đã bị bắt giam. Ông Saab không cho biết danh tính của các nghi can, cũng không đáp ứng yêu cầu cung cấp thêm thông tin.

Chính quyền Venezuela nói rằng hai thiết bị bay không người điều khiển mang theo chất nổ đã được phóng lên chiều thứ Bảy 4/8 khi ông Nicolas Maduro đang tham dự buổi lễ kỷ niệm ngày thành lập Vệ binh Quốc gia tại trung tâm Caracas. Chiếc đầu tiên bị lực lượng an ninh bắn hạ, chiếc thứ hai rơi xuống một tòa nhà.

Theo ông Maduro, phe cực hữu Venezuela có liên can đến vụ tấn công. Có 11 người được huấn luyện ở biên giới Colombia, và những người tài trợ cho « âm mưu ám sát » này ở Bogota và Florida đã hứa hẹn 50 triệu đô la, để đổi lấy sinh mạng của tổng thống Venezuela.

An alleged assassination attempt by drones. A thwarted coup attempt. Calls for an international military invasion. Severe economic sanctions. Bankruptcy. Massive, nationwide daily protests. Regional isolation. Claims of a rigged election and near global refusal to recognize his presidency as legitimate.

Ask the laughingstock government of Britistan how this approach worked out with Tommy Robinson.














We note directly the ham-fisted attempt to bludgeon contrary voices, in this case Alex jones, into oblivion, by our would-be Communist Thought Police overlords.

A number of opinions have been expressed, and will continue to be.

1) This isn't the cake-baking argument.
You can play that card when anyone can bake a cake.
You cannot make it when you own all the ovens, flour, sugar, and eggs, in existence.
It's one thing for some schlub on Food Network to self-proclaim himself The Boss Of Cake.

You want the 2:40 timehack.

It's another thing entirely when, simply due to overall government reluctance to intervene, attempt to declare one's corporation the arbiter of all political thought on the internet, simply because one can. Ask the late John Brown how that sort of attempt is taken by the actual PTB.

2) Besides the obvious marketplace backlash ($100B in stock market value loss later, Facebook is starting to get the hint, and when the stockowners and SEC get through, there's about to be a yuuuuuge change in corporate directorship there), this will become the worst of all possible worlds: the government will get the camel's nose into the tent and start regulating the Goolag monopoly as what it is, and break it up.

Alex Jones is merely the election of Hugo Chavez to venezuelanize social media. They're in the process of burning down their own house. Because they can.

          Comment on Analysis backs claim drones were used to attack Venezuela’s president by El Comandante      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Guessing you guys never used a drone OR plastic explosive. First of all, what do drones do when they lose their signal to their encrypted controller? They don't get “disoriented”. Otherwise they'd be crashing all over the place in every country kids use them. They go to where they are programmed to go if they lose signal!....and where these went, says it was a staged attack as they apparently were flying back to where they came from when they were jammed which is opposite from where they were said to have come from...Oops! As far as plastic explosive? Can't be set off without a detonator creating a shockwave that goes through the PE. Can't be set off by fire, can't be set off by a bullet, can't be set off by a fall, that's kind of why you never hear of an unexpected explosion at a construction site. Lastly, they came from China. Who has close ties to China? The US? no...Colombia??? No. Maduro?? Owes them $120 billion! ...and lastly, lastly, it doesn't take a brain scientist to fake geolocation. Cuba's G2 which runs Venezuela's security forces, does it all the time. Interestingly, Maduro exposed more about how shoddy his protection rings are and his troops support level by having it video taped. Did the soldiers run towards him or run away. THAT said volumes! When the information points to something easy, take a deeper look.

          Venezuela Releases Evidence Tying Maduro Assassins to Colombia, US      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Following the attempt on Venezuelan Nicolas Maduro’s life with two explosive-laden drones on Saturday, the President promised to get to the bottom of the failed plot. Last night he showed that his government has learned some things at least, and Maduro says there is still more evidence to come.

Prior to releasing the evidence, Maduro announced that he would be showing off what Venezuelan security had found late Monday night. According to Maduro at the time the evidence backed up the initial claims he had made right after the assassination attempt that “there is sufficient evidence of the participation of the outgoing Colombian government of President Juan Manuel Santos.”

On Tuesday night Maduro presented the evidence to the people of Venezuela in a televised address. Much of what Maduro presented seems to confirm his conclusions and exposes a wider network of the forces plotting to end his life, and the Bolivarian revolution.


          Colombia’s Uribe to US Business Leaders: Help Take Out Maduro      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A video was revealed on Sunday showing former Colombian president, Alvaro Uribe, telling a group of listeners that Venezuelan soldiers need to “remove” President Nicolas Maduro from office.

The recording was released just 24 hours after two air drones carrying explosives were detonated above President Maduro and several members of his administration on Saturday as the head of state addressed a large crowd at the 81st anniversary of the Bolivarian National Guard in Caracas. Maduro and other Venezuelan officials are saying that right-wing factions in the United States, Venezuelan and Colombia are behind the drone bombs.

In the video the former president and current Congress member says in English:

“I have said this in public, I have said that the Venezuelan soldiers need to remove that government (of Nicolas Maduro), not to establish a military government, but to call for a rapid transition, with democratic and transparent elections.

“When I say that the United States should help promote that decision, it is in private, for us,” Uribe tells the small group of U.S. business leaders at his home in the Rio Negro, Antioquia on Saturday, hours before the failed attack on Venezuela’s head of state.


          Footage 'shows moment drone bomb exploded over Presidential rally in Venezuela' as six 'terrorists and assassins' are arrested amid claims the incident was faked      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Footage has emerged which appears to show the moment a drone bomb detonated over a packed rally where Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro was giving a speech.

The video, which has been widely shared by Venezuelan social media accounts, shows a single drone hovering above the military parade - before suddenly exploding into a fireball.

Venuzuelan officials have claimed dissidents used two M600 drones, each carrying 2lb of C4 explosive. One of the drones was allegedly set to explode above the president while the other was to detonate directly in front of him.

Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said the military managed to knock one of the drones off-course electronically and the other crashed into an apartment building two streets away from where Mr Maduro was speaking to the hundreds of troopsl.

Gold Prices Are Soaring In Venezuela

By Frank Holmes - Aug 07, 2018, 9:20 AM CDT

Last month in Venezuela’s capital city of Caracas, a cup of coffee would have set you back 2 million bolivars. That’s up from only 2,300 bolivars 12 months ago, meaning the price of a cup of joe has jumped nearly 87,000 percent, according to Bloomberg’s Café Con Leche Index. And you thought Starbucks was expensive.

But that was July. Prices in Venezuela are doubling roughly every 18 days. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) now projects inflation to hit an astronomical 1 million percent by the end of this year. This puts the beleaguered Latin American country on the same slippery path as Zimbabwe a decade ago and Germany in the 1920s, when a wheelbarrow full of marks was barely enough to get you a loaf of bread.

Venezuela’s socialist president Nicolas Maduro—who only this past weekend survived an assassination attempt involving several explosive-laden drones—announced recently that the country plans to rein in hyperinflation by lopping off five zeroes from its currency. If you recall, Zimbabwe similarly tried to combat soaring prices of its own by issuing a cartoonish $100 trillion banknote—which in 2009 was still not enough to buy a bus ticket in the capital of Harare.

Without structural governmental reforms, a new bolivar is just as unlikely to steady Venezuela’s skyrocketing inflation or remedy its crumbling economy.

So where does this put gold? At some point, hyperinflation gets so ludicrously out of control that discussing exchange rates becomes pointless. But as of July 30, an ounce of the yellow metal would have gone for 211 million bolivars—an increase of more than 3.1 million percent from just the beginning of the year.



(Click to enlarge)

My point in bringing this up is to reinforce the importance of gold’s Fear Trade, which says that demand for the yellow metal rises when inflation threatens to destroy a nation’s currency—as it’s doing right now in Venezuela. A Venezuelan family that had the prudence to store some of its wealth in gold would be in a much better position today to survive or escape President Maduro’s corrupt, far-left regime.

In extreme cases like this, gold could literally help save lives.

Such was the case following the fall of Saigon in 1975. If not for gold, many South Vietnamese families might not have managed to escape the country. A seat on one of the thousands of fleeing boats reportedly went for eight or 10 taels of gold per adult, four or five taels per child. (A tael is slightly more than an ounce.) Gold was their passport. Thanks to the precious metal, tens of thousands of Vietnamese “boat people,” as they’re now known, were able to start new lives in the U.S., Canada, Australia and other developed countries.

Venezuela’s Once Prosperous Economy Destroyed by Corruption and Mismanagement

But back to Venezuela. Amid the corruption and mismanagement, the only thing helping the country pay its bills right now is gold. Two years ago, it had the world’s 16th largest gold reserves. Today it stands at number 26 as it’s sold off more than half its holdings since 2010. While countries such as China and Russia continue to add to their holdings, Venezuela has been the world’s largest seller of gold for the past two years.

It’s hard to remember now, but as recently as 2001, Venezuela was the most prosperous country in all of South America. Like Zimbabwe, the OPEC nation is rich in natural resources, home to the world’s largest oil reserves and what’s believed to be the fourth largest gold mine. Oil exports account for virtually all of its export revenue.

In 2016, Venezuela was the third largest exporter of crude to the U.S. following Canada and Saudi Arabia, but with output in freefall, this is changing rapidly. For the first time ever in February, Colombia sold more crude oil to the U.S. than its eastern neighbor did. And in June, Venezuela’s state-owned oil and gas company, Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), informed at least eight foreign clients that it would be unable to meet supply commitments. According to GlobalData, production is on track to fall to only 1 million barrels per day by 2019, down from 3 million a day in 2011, meaning the petrostate might soon have nothing left to deliver.

President Maduro now has the ignoble distinction of reigning over an economic recession that rivals the very worst in modern history. Last month, the IMF forecast that the country’s real gross domestic product (GDP) would fall 18 percent this year—the third straight year of double-digit declines.

A mass exodus of young, working-age Venezuelans, many of them college-educated, is unlikely to help. Estimates of the number of people who have fled the country in the past two years alone range from 1.7 million to as high as 4 million.

Their escape is no easy task, as numerous international airlines, citing rampant crime and a lack of electricity, have canceled all flights in and out of Caracas. The only U.S. carrier still operating in the country is American Airlines, which offers a single daily flight from the nation’s capital to Miami. Just two years ago, there were as many as 40 nonstop American flights, not to mention those of rival carriers, between the two cities—a sign of just how dramatic and swift Maduro’s mismanagement has been in crippling Venezuela’s once-robust economy.

The Diversification Benefits of Gold

The gold bears were on top last week, with the metal trading as low as $1,205 on Thursday. That’s the closest it’s come to dipping below $1,200 since February 2017. Friday’s lower-than-expected jobs report gave gold a modest boost, but it wasn’t enough to prevent a fourth straight week of price declines.

In times like this, it’s important to remember that, according to gold’s DNA of volatility, it’s a non-event for the metal to close up or down 1 percent at the end of each session, 2 percent for the 10-day trading period. And guess what? The S&P 500 Index has the same level of volatility.

Ten days ago, gold was trading just under $1,230 an ounce, or 0.6 percent more than today. The math is sound.

It’s also worth remembering that gold has traditionally had a low to negative correlation with other assets such as equities. This is why many investors over the years have used it as a portfolio diversifier.

Case in point: On June 26, suffered its worst single-day decline since the company went public in 2012. Its stock plunged 19 percent, erasing some $120 billion in market capitalization—the most ever in history for a single trading session.

Gold, meanwhile, held relatively steady, slipping only 0.62 percent.

          El seleccionador panameño dará prioridad a los menores de 23 años ante Venezuela      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

El seleccionador interino de Panamá, Gary Stempel, anunció este jueves que dará prioridad a los jugadores menores de 23 años, tanto a los mundialistas como los del torneo local, para enfrentar a Venezuela en un partido amistoso en casa el próximo 11 de septiembre.

EFE

En una rueda de prensa ofrecida hoy, el entrenador anglopanameño dijo asimismo que algunos de sus objetivos al frente de 'la Roja Centroamericana' son "mejorar ciertas características" de la era de su antecesor, el colombiano Hernán Darío 'Bolillo' Gómez, y "enamorar a la afición" con triunfos.

Stempel agregó que retoma "con mucha alegría" el cargo de seleccionador después de nueve años y que con él en el banquillo "el estilo y la filosofía del juego que quiero ya lo tengo definido, va a ser diferente" al de Gómez.

"Tenemos jugadores jóvenes, dinámicos, con mucha energía, creo que eso es algo del estilo que están jugando, creo que en casa tenemos que hacer un juego vistoso", insistió.

"Quiero ganar el partido, quiero jugar bien", dijo de manera categórica el director del equipo nacional que viene de participar por primera vez en un mundial de mayores, el de Rusia 2018, donde fue eliminado en la primera ronda.

Stempel entiende que, por haber participado en Rusia 2018, la afición será "más exigente" con la selección mayor y advirtió que para él, por ser quien clasificó a Panamá a mundiales juveniles, se da por descontado y eso no le roba la calma.

Ante el partido siguiente al de Venezuela, un amistoso ante Japón el 12 de octubre en el país asiático, Stempel señaló que la situación será "muy diferente" porque se exige en el contrato que participen "15 de los jugadores que estuvieron en el Mundial", lo que le resta margen de maniobra e innovación en la alineación.

El técnico, de amplia experiencia y formación internacional con la FIFA, expresó que el próximo lunes observará a un grupo de 26 jugadores sub'23 del campeonato nacional que no estuvieron en la convocatoria de 'Bolillo' Gómez, para elegir entre ellos algunos que estarán contra Venezuela.

La nómina oficial de convocados se dará quince días antes de dicho compromiso, según anunció la Federación Panameña de Fútbol (Fepafut).

Stempel, también seleccionador sub'17 de Panamá, aclaró que al día de hoy tiene "en mente el 95 por ciento" de los jugadores que pretende llamar para el primero de los dos amistosos.

De otro modo, admitió que "no se puede negar" que le gustaría mantenerse como seleccionador permanente.

El entrenador reconoció que ahora "hay mucha organización" en el fútbol panameño tanto a nivel de clubes como de selecciones y expresó su anhelo de que se cuente, para todas ellas, con psicólogos deportivos, una especialidad "que no existe en Panamá" todavía, para lo que espera el apoyo de los federados.

Stempel trabajará en la selección mayor con su asistente técnico, el peruano Pascual Ramírez, el exseleccionado Ricardo James como preparador de porteros y Mauricio Palomino como preparador físico.

Para el partido ante la Vinotinto, la Fepafut puso a la venta hoy los boletos, que tienen un costo de 10 y 20 dólares. EFE

          Acusados del «atentado» a Maduro fueron denunciados como «infiltrados» chavistas en la Resistencia      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Los datos aportados por las autoridades de Venezuela sobre el supuesto atentado a Nicolás Maduro sigue planteando incógnitas. Dos acusados por el régimen de estar directamente implicados en la organizadores del presunto ataque con drones durante un desfile militar en la avenida Bolívar de Caracas el pasado sábado, Rayder Russo y Osman Delgado, habían sido señalados por el policía rebelde Óscar Pérez de ser unos «infiltrados» del chavismo. De acuerdo con el resultado de las investigaciones que Maduro ha ofrecido hasta el momento, Russo y Delgado habrían tenido un papel clave en la organización de la logística y de la financiación de la operación. Pero, además, serían dos figuras importantes dentro de la argumentación oficial para sostener la acusación de que Colombia y Estados Unidos estuvieron detrás del «atentado». En este sentido, según el mandatario venezolano, Rayder Russo, alias Pico, es un protegido por el Gobierno colombiano y tiene un expediente abierto por varios cargos relacionados con el movimiento de la Resistencia. En el caso de Osman Delgado Tabosky, «Jeremías», residiría en Miami (Florida), de donde Maduro viene sosteniendo desde el sábado que procedía la financiación del supuesto ataque. En este sentido, Maduro anunció que Venezuela pedirá la extradición de ambos a Colombia y Estados Unidos, respectivamente. Pero un mensaje publicado en Twitter el 1 de diciembre de 2017 por el inspector de policía sublevado Óscar Pérez plantea nuevas dudas. El tuit alertaba de «infiltrados del Régimen dentro de las Filas de la Resistencia». En concreto, indicaba que «Rayder Russo alías “Salomón/Teniente Pico” y Osman Delgado Tabosky alías “Jeremías” hacen vídeos para beneficio propio, fueron descubiertos y ahora venden información al Gobierno». #ATENCION Infiltrados del Régimen dentro de las Filas de la #Resistencia RAYDER RUSSO alías "Salomón/Teniente Pico" y OSMAN DELGADO TABOSKY alías "Jeremías", HACEN VÍDEOS PARA BENEFICIO PROPIO, fueron descubiertos y ahora venden información al Gobierno. pic.twitter.com/8jNDkZLwlu— Oscar Perez (@oscaromshanti) December 1, 2017Asalto al fuerte Pamaracay Osman Delgado había sido señalado por el director de la inteligencia venezolana (Sebin), Gustavo González López, como autor intelectual del asalto al parque de armas del fuerte Pamaracay, en el estado Carabobo, el 6 de agosto de 2017, que se bautizó como operación David. El autor del citado mensaje en Twiitter, Óscar Pérez, fue el inspector del Cuerpo de Investigaciones Científicas Penales y Criminalísticas (CICPC) que en junio de 2017 atrajo la atención mundial al robar un helicóptero para sobrevolar las sedes del Tribunal Supremo de Justicia y del Ministerio del Interior y que llamó a salir a las calles contra Nicolás Maduro. Pérez acabaría ejecutado en una operación de las fuerzas del régimen el pasado enero. Además de Russo y Delgado hay otras 17 personas relacionadas con el «atentado», según el fiscal general del régimen, Tarek William Saab. Entre ellos figuran dos diputados, el expresidente de la Asamblea Nacional Julio Borges, y Juan Requesens, que ha sido detenido por el Sebin. La Asamblea Nacional Constituyente –el órgano oficialista creado por Maduro para anular al parlamento legítimo– levantó el pasado miércoles la inmunidad de ambos legisladores. Lucha de facciones ABC supo por una fuente extraoficial, que pidió el anonimato, que el «atentado» fue obra de un grupo interno del régimen, ligado a una de las facciones que se disputan el poder, para enviar un mensaje a Maduro, servir de excusa para arremeter contra dirigentes opositores y distraer la atención de la crisis humanitaria. Esta fuente apunta que sin una complicidad interna no habrían podido sobrevolar los dos drones la avenida Bolívar y que los equipos voladores no llevaban suficiente carga letal de explosivos, sino «apenas 30 gramos de C4 o pólvora» como para asustar y crear pánico. El régimen aprovechó el atentado para magnificarlo y arremeter contra la oposición. En estos días el Tribunal Supremo en el exilio juzga en Bogotá a Maduro por corrupción y ningún medio lo destacó por estar ocupado con el atentado. El presidente de la Constituyente chavista, Diosdado Cabello, ha dirigido la ofensiva contra los dirigentes opositores advirtiendo de que «la justicia viene con todo». Antes de despojar de inmunidad a Borges y Requesens, se le había retirado a los diputados María Corina Machado, Mercedes Aranguren, Freddy Guevara y Germán Ferrer.
          Ecuador recibe a 4.200 venezolanos diarios por la crisis      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Pablo, 31 años, intenta contener sus lágrimas, pero su voz está entrecortada. La fuerza le viene de su pequeño hijo, Andrés, que abrazó su pierna mientras nos cuenta su drama. «Salí de Maracay por mi mujer y mi hijo, pero dejé a mi madre. Ella misma me dio valor, pero me duele porque era el día de su cumpleaños». La historia de Pablo se repite. Los venezolanos se han visto forzados a dejar a sus familias, incluso a sus padres muchos de ellos ancianos y enfermos, por aventurarse junto a sus hijos a otras tierras donde puedan conseguir alimentos y medicinas. La crisis económica despertó el éxodo de venezolanos hacia países vecinos que salen a través de la frontera con Colombia. Desde hace meses, miles de personas han llegado a Ecuador y el Gobierno de Lenín Moreno había manejado con discreción ese flujo migratorio. Sin embargo, ahora están desbordados. En promedio llegan al territorio ecuatoriano 4.200 venezolanos diarios, por lo que el Ejecutivo tuvo que declarar en estado de emergencia las provincias de Carchi, limítrofe con Colombia, Pichincha, cuya capital, Quito, es el punto de reunión de los migrantes y la provincia costera de El Oro, fronteriza con Perú. El estado de emergencia durará todo agosto y su intención es desplegar ayuda médica y asistencia social dado a las condiciones en las que llegan los venezolanos, algunos después de caminar hasta un mes. También, participará la Policía para apoyar los procedimientos de inmigración. El reflejo de la crisis se nota en la terminal terrestre de Carcelén, donde cientos duermen a la intemperie en un clima que bien puede ser una noche estrellada o una pertinaz llovizna que hace que amanezcan mojados. «En Venezuela no hay futuro. Lo que ganamos no alcanza para un pollo; aquí estamos, con mucho frío, pero nos mueve la ilusión de que podemos cambiar; quiero ir a Perú, allá llegó ya mi prima», dice Soledad. Mientras ella conversa se acerca Leonor; está conmovida, una familia quiteña llegó y le entregó un colchón, toallas, comida y el hijo que venía con ellos le entregó un pastel. Las autoridades sanitarias de la terminal están inquietas. Han debido instalar baterías sanitarias adicionales. «Esto está colapsado», dice un agente de que custodia por allí. «Da pena mirar a niños temblando de frío; ellos vienen de lugares calientes y aquí se enferman», dice. A un costado de la terminal uno grupo de niños juega ajeno al drama que viven sus padres; al contrario, están contentos porque muchas personas llegan con golosinas y juguetes. Mientras tanto, Katherine dice a ABC: «Cómo le digo a mi hija de cuatro años, que su abuela no pudo venir y que nosotros estamos aquí para buscarle un mejor porvenir; cómo le digo que no tenga hambre». Un grupo de hombres más bien jóvenes conversan, comentan lo que pasa en Venezuela y creen que no hay salida rápida, mientras los militares sostengan a Maduro. Evitan decir algo de la postura de Ecuador de alentar una consulta popular. Uno de ellos se atreve y dice. «Absurdo, con las mismas autoridades controlando todo, para qué». Otro señala que le da miedo que la crisis humanitaria aumente y que la gente se muera en las calles. «No hay qué comer», señala y dice sentirse privilegiado por haber salido de Venezuela. Según las cifras de Migración, en el primer semestre de 2018 han llegado a Ecuador unos 450.000 venezolanos; se calcula que unos 80.000 se han quedado en el país, los demás han ido a Perú y Chile. La declaratoria de emergencia ha activado la entrega de «kits de higiene» y ayuda alimentaria. Las autoridades coordinan con organizaciones humanitarias.

Description: 

<p>Caracas (AFP) - Le Parlement vénézuélien, seule institution tenue par l'opposition au président Nicolas Maduro, a demandé jeudi le soutien de la communauté internationale en ne reconnaissant pas le mandat d'arrêt délivré par la Cour suprême à l'encontre du leader d'opposition Julio Borges, exilé en Colombie.</p><p>Dans une déclaration, le Parlement a affirmé que la mesure contre M. Borges "est de nature politique et ne devrait pas être reconnue par un tribunal étranger".</p><p>La Cour suprême vénézuélienne a ordonné mercredi "l'arrestation immédiate" de l'ex-président du Parlement pour tentative de meurtre à l'encontre de Nicolas Maduro et lancé la procédure pour le juger.</p><p>La Cour s'est aussi déclaré favorable à des "poursuites" contre le député Juan Requesens, 29 ans, qui a milité avec Julio Borges dans le parti d'opposition Primero Justicia (la Justice d'abord).Il a été arrêté mardi.Le Parlement a réclamé sa "libération immédiate".</p><p>L'attaque à l'aide de drones chargés d'explosif samedi lors d'un défilé militaire à Caracas avait pour but, selon le gouvernement, d'attenter à la vie du chef de l'Etat.</p><p>Selon le procureur, 19 personnes au total sont "directement liées" à cet "attentat" qui, selon le gouvernement, a été organisé à partir d'une ferme à Chinacota, en Colombie, par des personnes qui ont reçu 50 millions de dollars. </p><p>Le procureur a notamment cité deux "financiers" supposés de l'attaque, Rayder Ruso Marquez et un colonel à la retraite, Oswaldo Valentin Garcia, actuellement en Colombie, ainsi qu'une troisième personne, Osman Delgado Tabosky, dont il a demandé l'extradition auprès des Etats-Unis.</p><p></p><p>- "Farce" et "kidnapping" - </p><p></p><p>Dès samedi, Nicolas Maduro a accusé l'opposition vénézuélienne et l'ex-président colombien Juan Manuel Santos d'être derrière cette attaque avec des fonds provenant des Etats-Unis. </p><p>Bogota et Washington ont nié toute implication et l'opposition crie au montage.</p><p>L'Union européenne a réclamé jeudi une "enquête exhaustive et transparente (...) pour établir les faits dans le plein respect de l'Etat de droit et des droits de l'homme", regrettant que "les derniers événements ont encore aggravé les tensions au Venezuela".</p><p>Julio Borges a dénoncé mercredi auprès de l'AFP à Bogota une "farce" et une "mise en scène"."Il n'y a pas eu d'attentat.Cela a été inventé par le gouvernement.C'est un rideau de fumée créé pour menacer, réprimer".</p><p>"Ils nous accusent de tout (...) Parce que nous avons obtenu des sanctions" internationales "de pays occidentaux contre le gouvernement Maduro", a-t-il dit.</p><p>Julio Borges s'est dit "en sécurité" dans son exil en Colombie, estimant que le mandat d'arrêt prononcé à son encontre à Caracas n'existait "pas légalement".</p><p>L'Assemblée constituante, créée pour neutraliser le Parlement, a privé de leur immunité les députés visés par des poursuites.</p><p>Juan Requesens a été arrêté mardi soir par des membres de la police secrète. </p><p>"Sans aucun mandat d'arrêt, ils sont arrivés à la résidence et l'ont emmené par la force", a affirmé à des journalistes le père du député.Certains proches et membres de sa famille se sont rendus devant les locaux des services de renseignement, soupçonnant qu'il y soit détenu.</p><p>"Il s'agit d'un kidnapping, de la disparition forcée d'un député, du viol de son immunité.(...).L'Assemblée constituante, illégitime, inconstitutionnelle, n'a pas le pouvoir de lever l'immunité", a réagi lors d'une conférence de presse mercredi le vice-président du Parlement, Alfonso Marquina.</p><p></p><p>- "Il est temps de partir" -</p><p></p><p>Selon la Constitution vénézuélienne, seul le Parlement peut lever l'immunité des ses membres, sur demande de la Cour suprême.Mais dans la pratique, l'Assemblée constituante --non reconnue par une grande partie de la communauté internationale-- s'est arrogé ses pouvoirs.</p><p>Finalement remporté le 20 mai par Nicolas Maduro, le scrutin a été salué par la Russie mais rejeté par de nombreux pays occidentaux qui ont imposé des sanctions, notamment économiques, et dont certains ne cachent pas leur volonté de voir Nicolas Maduro quitter le pouvoir.</p><p>"C'est le moment pour les pays de la région qui sont confrontés aux migrations, qui souffrent des migrations, de condamner Maduro et de lui dire qu'il est temps pour lui de partir", a déclaré l'ambassadrice des Etats-Unis à l'ONU, Nikki Haley, en visite à la frontière entre la Colombie et le Venezuela.</p><p>Mercredi, l'Equateur a décrété l'état d'alerte dans les provinces limitrophes du Pérou et de la Colombie en raison d'un afflux grandissant de migrants vénézuéliens, qui atteint 4.200 par jour.</p><p>Les Vénézuéliens, étranglés par la crise économique, souffrent de pénuries qui touchent les produits de première nécessité, notamment les médicaments et les produits alimentaires.L'inflation pourrait atteindre 1.000.000% fin 2018 selon le Fonds monétaire international (FMI), et le PIB devrait s'effondrer de 18%. </p><p></p>

          Obispos de Venezuela piden a Gobierno de Maduro suspender detenciones arbitrarias de opositores      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


CARACAS, 09 Ago. 18 (ACI Prensa).- La Comisión de Justicia y Paz de la Conferencia Episcopal de Venezuela (CEV), llamó al Gobierno “a cesar la represión violenta contra los ciudadanos” y las detenciones arbitrarias de opositores, a quienes se acusa de participar en el “atentado” contra el presidente Nicolás Maduro.

Este 9 de agosto en su cuenta de Twitter el Tribunal Supremo de Justicia (TSJ), lanzó la orden de detención contra el diputado Julio Borges, opositor y expresidente de la Asamblea Nacional refugiado en Colombia. Maduro lo acusa de participar en el “atentado” con drones del sábado 4.

Además, el servicio de inteligencia detuvo al diputado opositor Juan Requesens, luego que Maduro también lo acusara de ser “uno de los responsables” del presunto atentado.

La orden contra Borges y la detención de Requenses se dieron luego que la Asamblea Nacional Constituyente –controlada por el Gobierno– revocó la inmunidad parlamentaria de ambos.

Además, el fiscal general de Venezuela, Tarek William Saab, dijo el lunes que se había identificado a los autores materiales y colaboradores del supuesto atentado. Ese día las autoridades informaron que fueron detenidos seis sospechosos.

Ante esto, la Comisión de la CEV publicó este jueves un comunicado en el que señaló que la investigación de hechos punibles, como el presunto atentado, debe realizarse a través de “los canales propios del proceso penal llevado por los Tribunales competentes que impliquen la existencia del delito y su tipificación”.

En ese sentido, advirtió que los indicios o presunciones de responsabilidad penal no deben llevar “a detenciones arbitrarias, tratos crueles o inhumanos, torturas y desapariciones forzadas”, que atentan contra la integridad física y psíquica de los ciudadanos.

Por ello, instó “al gobierno nacional a cesar la represión violenta contra los ciudadanos, acciones que se suman a la situación de crisis de inseguridad y desequilibrio social que vive el país”.

Además “invitamos a todos los grupos y vicarias de derechos humanos a estar atento de violaciones de derechos humanos, sistematizar todas las acciones y denunciar en las instituciones rectoras todo acto que viole el debido proceso”.

          Cumbre Nueva y Los Gofiones celebran juntos en El Paso sus aniversarios      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Este viernes, 10 de agosto, en el recinto central de las Fiestas Trienales  de la Bajada de La Virgen de El Pino en El Paso, se unen en el escenario del tradicional festival de aniversario de Cumbre Nueva la agrupación pasense (39) y Los Gofiones que este año también está celebrando su 50 aniversario, informa el Ayuntamiento pasense en una nota.

Los Gofiones, añade, “es una agrupación de música de Gran Canaria, compuesta por unos cuarenta cantantes e instrumentistas, creada a iniciativa de Totoyo Millares. Son poseedores de una amplia discografía e importantes reconocimientos. Su trabajo en el campo de las raíces folclóricas se compagina con la búsqueda de nuevas fórmulas musicales y escénicas. El paso del grupo por distintos países y el vínculo que une a Canarias con Latinoamérica han servido para ampliar su repertorio con la música de otras latitudes. Nace el 3 de octubre de 1968, en Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, cuando un grupo de amigos acude al Jardín Canario, convocados por Totoyo Millares con el fin de crear un colectivo capaz de realizar labores de investigación y de rescate en el campo del folclore canario. En aquella reunión también estuvieron presentes personalidades del mundo de la cultura canaria. Entre todos establecieron las bases del que ha sido, a lo largo de los últimos 50 años, uno de los grupos musicales emblemáticos de Canarias.

La Agrupación Folclórica Cultural Cumbre Nueva de El Paso con 40 componentes, apunta, “distribuidos en bailarines, solistas, voces y cuerdas, volverá a deleitar al numeroso público fiel seguidor de los de la localidad, su música y sus bailes son recopilaciones heredadas del pueblo, generación tras generación. Desde sus comienzos, han sido numerosas sus actuaciones en todos los pueblos y rincones de las islas, así como en diferentes lugares de la península y también en el extranjero representando a España en países como Polonia, Rumanía, Grecia, Holanda, Costa Rica y Portugal. Y representando a Canarias en Venezuela. Una dilatada trayectoria llena de premios como mención de honor por su participación en el XI festival de los pueblos del mundo (Madrid), en Fitur 91, o la Medalla de Oro de El Paso, entre otros”.

En la celebración de su 39 aniversario, “interpretan lo más conocido de su amplio repertorio con alguna sorpresa. Seguro que isas, folias  y seguidillas no faltarán”.

Disposant cette année d’un espace de près de 98.000 mètres carrés, la foire rassemblera 2500 exposants représentant 97 pays différents ajoutant le Liban, le Kirghizistan, le Venezuela et le Panama à ceux présents l’an dernier. Pour l’édition 2018, l’invité d’honneur est le Maroc, une façon de célébrer les 60 ans de l'établissement des relations diplomatiques entre la Chine et le Maroc.

 

Le ministère marocain de la Culture et de la Communication a confirmé la présence du Maroc à la manifestation. Le pays espère ainsi offrir un rayonnement international à sa culture, mais aussi mettre en lumière ses auteurs et ses publications, comme il l’exprime dans un communiqué. L’envergure de la foire sera aussi un outil pour entretenir et créer des relations fortes avec les éditeurs du monde entier.

 

Cette diversité devrait permettre à la foire de servir de « plateforme de qualité pour la coopération et la communication entre les maisons d'éditions chinoises et étrangères en important des livres étrangers de bonne qualité à l'intérieur de la Chine et en exportant des livres chinois à l'étranger ».


Pékin inaugurera sa première Foire internationale

En marge de cette action de mise en contact, quatre autres grands axes seront développés tout au long de la foire. Le communiqué précise que « les 40 ans de la réforme et de l'ouverture de la Chine, la présentation de la culture africaine par la présence du Maroc, l'amélioration de l'expérience de lecture et des centres culturels pour permettre le développement multidimensionnel de l'industrie de l'édition et des établissements culturels, ainsi que la création de la Foire des livres pour enfants afin d'aider ces titres à être exportés » sont au programme.

Los epígonos del castrismo (Parte II)

Por Miguel Sales Figueroa
Málaga
9 de agosto de 2018


Socialismo con fecha de caducidad

La carrera de Díaz-Canel hacia la cima del poder político en Cuba podría culminar en 2021, una vez que Raúl Castro se jubile definitivamente –a los 90 años- y deje el cargo de Primer Secretario del PCC y jefe de facto de las Fuerzas Armadas (aunque, según la Constitución vigente, esa función corresponde al Presidente del Consejo de Estado). Al clausurar la sesión de investidura del nuevo mandatario,  Castro afirmó que todo estaba preparado a fin de que, “cuando yo falte, [Díaz Canel] pueda asumir también esta condición de Primer Secretario del Partido”.

Por si no hubiera quedado claro el carácter subalterno del nombramiento, Castro no sólo anunció la designación futura de Díaz-Canel al cargo partidista, sino que detalló también cómo tendrá que desempeñar su cometido durante los próximos 10 años y luego abandonar el poder. “Sus dos mandatos debe cumplirlos –dijo Castro-, de 5 años cada uno […] cuando él cumpla sus dos mandatos,  si trabaja bien y si lo aprueban [los órganos del PCC y del Gobierno] , él debe mantenerse, lo mismo que estamos haciendo con él, y quedarse los tres años que faltarán hasta el próximo congreso del PCC, para viabilizar [la sucesión]”. De manera que en los tres años que vienen, Díaz-Canel ejercerá su función ancilar bajo la estricta vigilancia del PCC y es poco probable que, en el hipotético caso de que tuviera ideas liberalizadoras sobre el futuro del país, pueda llevarlas a vías de hecho .

La deshilvanada alocución de Castro y el penoso espectáculo de la investidura de su protegido, con el voto unánime de un Parlamento domesticado que sólo sesiona cuatro días al año, y aprueba a mano alzada todo lo que le echen, parecían ilustrar una conocida reflexión de Guy Sorman que figura en el libro Sortir du socialisme: “Lorsque le chef n’est pas charismatique, les régimes socialistes théâtralisent n’importe quel sous-chef, comme ce fut souvent le cas en Europe centrale. Et lorsqu’il n’y a plus de chef du tout, le système socialiste se défait. Sans culte de la personnalité, le socialisme n’a plus qu’une durée de vie limitée“ 

Una estrategia gatopardiana

En palabras de Raúl Castro, la estrategia que deberá administrar Díaz-Canel “nos permitirá continuar avanzando en la actualización de nuestro modelo económico y social, o lo que es lo mismo, ‘cambiar todo lo que debe ser cambiado’; y lo haremos a la velocidad que nos permitan el consenso que forjemos al interior de nuestra sociedad y la capacidad que demostremos de hacer bien las cosas, para evitar graves errores que puedan comprometer el cumplimiento exitoso de esta gigantesca y honrosa tarea”  

    Traducción al román paladino: los cambios se aprobarán en dosis homeopáticas y se aplicarán con mucha parsimonia. Y el grado de influencia del nuevo presidente en esas reformas será sumamente reducido. La pauta de esta estrategia gatopardiana de cambiarlo todo para que nada cambie ha quedado patente en los dos mandatos cumplidos por Raúl Castro. En un decenio de ejercicio del poder absoluto, tras haber sido el segundo hombre del régimen durante medio siglo, el balance de su gestión es más bien escueto y puede resumirse en cinco puntos: a) Restablecimiento de relaciones diplomáticas con Estados Unidos; b) Implantación de reformas económicas de poca monta; c) Cambios menores en el dispositivo de control social (comunicaciones, salidas del país, etc.); d) Incremento de la represión contra los grupos opositores; y e) Aumento sustancial de la emigración.  

De todas esas medidas, la reanudación de los vínculos oficiales con Estados Unidos es la de mayor calado y la que sin duda condicionará la presidencia de Díaz-Canel. La reconciliación con Estados Unidos, en los términos en que se produjo, constituyó una gran victoria diplomática para el castrismo. La confrontación permanente con Washington, mantenida por Fidel Castro como principal seña de identidad del régimen, sirvió para granjearle la simpatía de millones de personas que, real o imaginariamente, se sentían agraviadas por la política estadounidense. Incluso en sectores conservadores y de extrema derecha de Europa se veía con agrado que Cuba fuera algo así como un clavo en la bota del Tío Sam. Barack Obama y Raúl Castro decidieron poner fin a la pugna en diciembre de 2014. Según el razonamiento de Obama, el cambio de política hacia Cuba induciría transformaciones de toda índole que colocarían a la Isla en el camino de la democracia y la prosperidad.

Pero la extrema lentitud y superficialidad de los cambios económicos autorizados por Castro y el recrudecimiento de la represión contra los disidentes, ponen de manifiesto la endeblez de los argumentos que esgrimió el gobierno demócrata y el acierto de sus críticos. Obama renunció unilateralmente a casi todos los medios de presión sobre La Habana y en pago sólo recibió vagas promesas de liberalización económica y lenidad política. Hasta la llegada de Donald Trump a la Casa Blanca, esas medidas de normalización contribuyeron a legitimar y reforzar al castrismo, y no han mejorado gran cosa las condiciones de vida la población. Sin revocar todas las decisiones de su antecesor, Trump ha endurecido de nuevo la política bilateral, lo que se ha traducido en una reducción del volumen de turismo y de remesas que Cuba venía recibiendo.

La otra cara del asunto es que, si bien la prensa oficial mantiene cierta retórica belicosa contra Estados Unidos, la población  sabe ya que ‘el enemigo imperialista’ ha desaparecido. Es difícil convencer a los cubanos de que Washington agrede  a la Isla y, al mismo tiempo, le vende alimentos y medicinas por valor de cientos de millones de dólares y permite el envío de remesas que han llegado a ser uno de los componentes esenciales del PIB nacional.

Tres crisis que se solapan

¿Cuál es la situación real, dentro y fuera de Cuba, a la que tiene que enfrentarse Díaz-Canel?

A partir de ahora, el nuevo mandatario cubano deberá afrontar una situación interna marcada sobre todo por la ineficacia económica del sistema, la desafección creciente de la población y la lenta recuperación de la sociedad civil. Esta dinámica se manifiesta en un contexto internacional de pérdida de apoyos en América Latina, tras la derrota del kirchnerismo en Argentina, el regreso al poder de Sebastián Piñera en Chile y el encarcelamiento de Lula da Silva en Brasil. Pero el aspecto más ominoso para los epígonos del castrismo es el endurecimiento de la política estadounidense hacia Cuba y la profunda crisis del ‘Socialismo del Siglo XXI’ en Nicaragua y Venezuela. 

(Miguel Díaz-Canel y su esposa)

Como quedó explicado más arriba, las medidas que probablemente figuren en la nueva Constitución no producirían cambios sustanciales en el sistema, que seguiría siendo una dictadura de partido único con una estructura política similar a la de China, aunque sí podrían enmarcar una lenta evolución hacia concesiones más bien simbólicas en materia de derechos y libertades. Pero esos cambios parsimoniosos difícilmente lograrían frenar o modificar algunas tendencias profundas que operan actualmente y que parecen destinadas a empeorar la situación a medio y largo plazo. Esas tendencias se articulan en torno a tres vectores estrechamente relacionados entre sí: la economía, la demografía y la emigración.

La crisis económica

La primera tendencia de fondo es la crisis económica, que en el sistema comunista cubano es un problema crónico y estructural, no coyuntural. Tras haber cambiado de rumbo en diversas ocasiones —industrialización acelerada/ descarte de la industria; menosprecio del turismo/ rehabilitación del turismo; concentración en la producción de azúcar/ abandono del sector azucarero; penalización de la tenencia de dólares/ dolarización; demonización del exilio/ explotación de las remesas, etc.—, el Gobierno ha terminado por gestionar un aparato económico muchísimo menos productivo que el de la República que confiscó hace casi 60 años.

A la dependencia de los subsidios soviéticos, hasta 1991, siguió la dependencia de los subsidios venezolanos, ahora en peligro; la supuesta erradicación del desempleo se alcanzó mediante la multiplicación de puestos improductivos en el sector estatal; el abandono del sector azucarero representó la pérdida pura y dura de las tres cuartas partes de la base agroindustrial del país; la explotación de la mano de obra calificada que se exporta se realiza violando el derecho internacional y las normas éticas de la Organización Internacional del Trabajo (OIT). A fin de cuentas, quedan el níquel, el tabaco, los productos de biotecnología, el turismo y las remesas de los emigrados. Y todo eso ocurre en un contexto donde el níquel y el petróleo se cotizan a la baja y el consumo de azúcar y tabaco marcha a contrapelo de las tendencias sanitarias mundiales.

La ineficiencia crónica de la economía nacional está ligada a múltiples factores, pero todos proceden de la misma causa: el monopolio estatal de los medios de producción. Mientras la prioridad fundamental del régimen consista en mantener la hegemonía del PCC y no en mejorar las condiciones de vida de la población, cualquier medida de liberalización o apertura económica se aplicará con cuentagotas y tendrá efectos muy modestos sobre la realidad cotidiana de los cubanos. 

La crisis demográfica

En segundo lugar y dependiente de la anterior, está la crisis demográfica. La sociedad cubana envejece hoy a un ritmo rara vez visto en tiempos de paz. Cada año nacen menos niños y se prolonga un poco más la supervivencia de los ancianos. Cada día son más los jóvenes que tratan de marcharse al extranjero y se incorporan menos adultos a la vida laboral. Y, a diferencia de lo que ocurre en Europa, no hay inmigración a la vista que pueda compensar esa pérdida de personal activo. Según las estadísticas poco fiables que el Gobierno emplea para maquillar la situación, desde hace una década la población total de la Isla se encuentra estancada en unos 11.300.000 habitantes. Si se descuenta la manipulación —por ejemplo, la nueva clasificación de miles de emigrantes como "residentes temporales en el extranjero" que no se restan del número total de habitantes censados— la realidad es que la población ha venido disminuyendo, al menos desde 2010, y que seguirá haciéndolo de modo exponencial en el futuro inmediato, con una pirámide de edades cada vez más desfavorable.

Si a lo que precede se añade el hecho obvio de que la productividad del trabajo en la Isla se reduce paulatinamente debido a la mala gestión, la escasez de transportes, el envejecimiento de la maquinaria, la falta de incentivos, la corrupción y otros males clásicos del socialismo, el panorama resultante no ofrece muchos motivos de optimismo.

En los próximos años, una masa laboral decreciente en número y rendimiento tendrá que sufragar los gastos de seguridad social —sobre todo pensiones y atención médica— de una legión de jubilados cada vez más numerosa, que vivirá más tiempo —gracias a las nuevas tecnologías y los medicamentos que envían los parientes emigrados— y que por la misma razón acumulará más padecimientos y necesidades de toda índole. De hecho, los jubilados cubanos afrontan ya esa situación con pensiones de unos diez dólares mensuales y no todos tienen familiares en el extranjero dispuestos a ayudarlos. El deterioro de la infraestructura existente y la probada incapacidad del sistema para solucionar la escasez de vivienda no contribuirán a mejorar las condiciones de vida de ese sector de la población, que hacia 2030 representará un tercio del total de habitantes.

La crisis migratoria

El tercer factor, muy vinculado a los anteriores, es el giro que va tomando el impulso migratorio. En los últimos 22 años, desde los acuerdos sobre el tema suscritos con Estados Unidos en 1995, ha salido de la Isla poco más de un millón de emigrantes. Eso arroja un promedio de unos 50.000 prófugos anuales.

Pero, tras la abrogación de la política estadounidense de pies secos/ pies mojados  a principios de 2017, la situación cambió drásticamente. Por primera vez en una generación, la esperanza de salida se ha reducido a los 20.000 visados del ‘bombo’, -el sorteo anual que realiza el departamento de inmigración estadounidense- e incluso estos podrían peligrar si el nuevo Gobierno republicano decidiera usarlos como palanca para influir en la conducta de los dirigentes castristas.

La imposibilidad de entrar masivamente en Estados Unidos no anulará la tendencia cada vez más acentuada a la emigración que prevalece entre la juventud cubana, pero sí dificultará considerablemente su realización. Nadie es capaz de prever qué repercusión podría tener ese embotellamiento a la vuelta de cinco o diez años. 

Esos tres factores componen un círculo vicioso: la crisis demográfica empeora la situación económica y este deterioro genera nuevos emigrantes, lo que a su vez agrava el déficit de población. Esa combinación es nociva para el país, por más que el emigrante se convierta pronto en fuente de remesas y en candidato a regresar periódicamente a la Isla en calidad de turista.

Es difícil entrever en la política actual del Gobierno cubano o en los lineamientos de la futura Constitución un remedio para esos tres problemas conexos. Aunque algo sí parece evidente: con el paso del tiempo los jerarcas cubanos irán comprendiendo que fue un error exigir a Estados Unidos el fin de la política de pies secos/ pies mojados. Con los deseos hay que tener mucho cuidado, incluso en Cuba, porque a veces se cumplen.





          Venezuela yêu cầu Colombia dẫn độ nghi phạm ám sát Tổng thống Maduro      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Theo hãng tin TASS, mạng truyền hình Venezolana de Television dẫn lời Ngoại trưởng Venezuela Jorge Arreaza ngày 9/8 cho biết chính quyền Venezuela đã chính thức yêu cầu Colombia dẫn độ các nghi phạm trong vụ mưu sát Tổng thống Nicolas Maduro bằng máy bay không người lái.

Trong số năm nghi phạm có nghị sỹ đối lập Venezuela Julio Borges cũng như Đại tá đã nghỉ hưu Oswaldo Palomo.



Theo Ngoại trưởng Arreaza, "nhóm khủng bố" này đã được huấn luyện tại Colombia để thực hiện âm mưu ám sát.

Hôm 8/8, Tổng chưởng lý Venezuela William Saab cho biết chính quyền đã xác minh 19 đối tượng tham gia trực tiếp vào âm mưu ám sát và dự định sẽ tìm kiếm sự hỗ trợ của Mỹ và Colombia trong công tác điều tra.

Ngày 9/8, số lượng nghi phạm đã tăng lên 25 người./.

Die ARD wünscht, Venezuelas Präsident wäre tot.

Wenn ein fieser Diktator einen Mordversuch überlebt, hinterlässt dies gemischte Gefühle. Hat man nicht auch mit dem Hitler-Attentäter Georg Elser mitgefiebert und fand es schade, dass es nicht geklappt hat? So verortete auch unser Lieblings-Propaganda-Sender, die ARD, die Schuld an diesem Verbrechen eindeutig auf Seiten des Opfers. Wer Sozialist und zudem ein erklärter Gegner des US-Imperialismus ist, muss mit so was einfach rechnen. Die USA als Drahtzieher des Anschlags? Alles Verschwörungstherorie...
