          Thank You Sayyed Hadi - updated      Cache   Translate Page      

Leaders preach about the need to join military campaigns to the youth of the country and do it in a most charismatic fashion. They bang one fist on the speech podium and raise the other over their head while explaining how much of a duty it is to give the ultimate sacrifice. In most cases, those drafted, end up committing massacres – Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, Bosnia, Vietnam, and the list goes on. In many cases, they return home in a body bag. Never the leader or his kin though; draft dodging is a big thing for the men who send other people’s children to spiritual and physical doom.
[Hezbollah Secretary General His eminence] Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah is a man who knew, and still does, every single aspect of the field. He is aware of the complexity of the military situation where every Lebanese grain of sand exists. This is because of the Resistance’s strategic nature; although the honor of martyrdom is a highly sought-after goal, the leadership never places members in losing situations. Tactical intelligence rules resistance operations beginning with preparation stages up until execution and return to base.
The word “Dispensable” does not exist in Hezbollah’s dictionary.
Still, the liberation of a country can be hardly achieved by throwing roses and rice on occupying forces. Maybe try negotiations but that is impossible with an occupier who boasts a mile-long rap sheet written with the blood of endless civilians. Armed resistance is the answer and that does not come without risk.
The man who knows all the risks, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, did not object to his firstborn’s request to join the ranks of the Resistance; specific orders were given to treat the young man like any other son of loving parents who chose to defend Lebanon.
The son of the Secretary-General who leads the only Arab force that brought “Israel” to its knees was martyred. Sayyed Hassan’s reaction was giving gratitude to God for allowing him to join the league of other parents of martyred heroes. He gave the most precious gift of life to Lebanon.
Any father or mother would understand the emotional value of a child and how devastating it is to lose that child. Sayyed Hassan taught the world that it was not a loss, that the martyrdom of his beloved gentle natured son was a gain for the cause of all the oppressed of the world, for the resistance, and for Lebanon. Most importantly, a gain for young Hadi himself who has joined the honored few who are fortunate enough to walk behind the lord of the martyrs, Imam Hussein (AS).
Hadi Nasrallah’s martyrdom was a message to the people of the world. The content was simple and yet strong: The children of those sending your own to war are not more precious than yours.
Sayyed Nasrallah’s reaction was also a message. It conveyed that the country and its independence are more precious than any of us; including himself and his family. It also told people that a true leader looks at everyone equally. “Israel” kept Hadi’s body and refused to hand it over to the Red Cross to deliver to his family for proper burial. There is no doubt that they tried to negotiate over it but the Secretary-General refused to set his son apart from other people’s children after martyrdom just like he did when his son was still in active duty. Sayyed Nasrallah insisted that if there were to be a swapping deal, it should include the hijacked bodies of all the martyrs and not only his son’s.
This is just an example of why Sayyed Nasrallah is loved and revered so much by his followers and respected by others. As opposed to other leaders, he does not engage in theatrics and never asks for what he would not accept on himself. The way he analyzes current affairs and shares the honest outlook with the public is a trait almost exclusive to him. In the year 2000, when the “Israelis” pulled out of South Lebanon in a rush and without prior warning, they left the Lahed militia they had created behind. Although so many atrocities were committed by that militia, Sayyed Nasrallah had ordered the men of the resistance to quickly fill the void created by the Zionist army so as no one would engage in reprisals against the abandoned agents who tortured and killed so many of the people of the South. The Secretary-General of Hezbollah dedicated the liberation victory to all the Lebanese regardless of political affiliations and religion; he prohibited manhunts and left the issue of the local “Israeli” collaborators to the government.
In a way, the Sayyed prevented further blood being spilled on the land that was irrigated with the immaculate one of so many martyrs, including his son’s. Patriotism is always the basis of Sayyed Nasrallah’s decisions.
Hadi and his colleagues, those who preceded him and those who followed, have given their lives to keep our children safe. Without them, “Israel” would have annexed South Lebanon by now and would have claimed the riches recently found in the sea. Without them, “ISIS” would have probably spread its cancerous existence much further inwards like they did in regional countries.
Endless gratitude goes to all the parents of the martyrs because of whom our children live with dignity today. Endless gratitude to Sayyed Hadi whose martyrdom has set much needed standards.

          Taglio delle accise, ecco come il prezzo della benzina potrebbe calare      Cache   Translate Page      

Risultati immagini per Taglio delle accise

 

Le accise benzina in Italia continuano ad essere un peso che incide in maniera determinante sul prezzo dei carburanti alla pompa. Ecco perché nella prossima manovra, il governo ha intenzione di intervenire sulle accise benzina 2018, innescando quella che si spera possa essere una spirale al ribasso dei listini.

In particolare è stato il vicepremier Matteo Salvini a promettere esplicitamente un intervento sull’elenco accise benzina in vigore nel 2017, con l’abolizione di alcune di quelle più vecchie, tra le quali figurano le accise benzina della guerra d’Etiopia risalenti addirittura al 1935. In questo modo, secondo le stime di fonte governativa, si potrebbero ottenere alla pompa risparmidell’ordine di circa 11 centesimi.

Accise, balzelli senza tempo

In realtà, non si può non rilevare che la via facile di imporre accise sui carburanti, rappresenta da sempre una tentazione per i tanti governi che in questi decenni si sono succeduti alla guida del Paese.

Basti pensare che secondo i dati della Cgia di Mestre solo dal 2011 ad oggi ci sono stati ben 7 rincari che hanno fatto impennare del 29% le accise sulla benzina e addirittura del 46% quelle applicate sul gasolio da autotrazione.

Attualmente, a causa del solo peso delle accise, ogni qual volta ci rechiamo presso un'area di servizio a fare il pieno alla nostra autovettura versiamo al fisco più di 70 centesimi ogni litro di benzina e poco più di 60 centesimi euro ogni litro di gasolio. Un conto complessivo che per il 2017 è stato pari a circa 26,7 miliardi di euro.

Il tutto senza contare poi il peso, sempre tutto fiscale, dell’Iva che ovviamente contribuisce a rendere ancora più salato il conto degli automobilisti alla pompa. Tra l’altro, proprio il combinato disposto di accise e Iva innesca il perverso meccanismo delle tasse sulle tasse. Ritoccando infatti al rialzo le accise, queste ultime vanno ad aumentare la base imponibile su cui si applica l'Iva stessa.

Un salasso per i consumatori, e viceversa un doppio vantaggio per le casse dello Stato. Con il risultato finale che, considerando gli attuali costi dei carburanti, circa il 62% del prezzo della benzina e il 59% di quello del gasolio, è dovuto solo alla parte fiscale.

Le intenzioni del governo

Come accennato, proprio per cercare di spezzare questo circolo vizioso, il governo, nella prossima legge di stabilità, avrebbe intenzione di tagliare le accise più vecchie.

Stiamo parlando della già citata accisa della guerra d’Abissinia, ma anche quelle della crisi del Suez e della diga del Vajont, risalenti rispettivamente al 1956 e al 1963. E ancora le accise per l’inondazione di Firenze nel 1966, dei terremoti del Belice del 1969, del Friuli del 1976 e dell’Irpinia del 1980. Fino ad arrivare alle missioni Onu in Libano (1982 e 1983) e in Bosnia (1996).

E visto che, come accennato, in nessun epoca ci si è astenuti dall’agire sul prezzo della benzina per trovare risorse finanziarie fresche, è utile, tra le tante, citare le successive accise per il fondo spettacolo, per la crisi libica, per le alluvioni in Liguria e Toscana, per il decreto Salva-Italia, per il terremoto in Emilia, e per l’emergenza in Abruzzo.

Tra l’altro c’è da evidenziare il fatto che, il governo, quando deciderà effettivamente di intervenire, non potrà non tenere conto che alcune di queste accise, in particolare le più vecchie, sono state riunificate dal decreto Dini del 1995, mentre altre sono state rese strutturali dalla legge di stabilità 2013.

Brian Turner was packed and ready to ship out for Iraq when his grandfather finally broke a decades’ long silence about his own combat experience. When the words came, they were to say that Turner should grab the biggest weapon and as much ammunition as he could carry. The award-winning writer comes from a long line of veterans and ultimately joined their ranks because, he writes in his memoir , “I would’ve been ashamed in the years to come if I hadn’t…. because it would’ve meant that between me and the people I revered most there were beaches and jungle foliage and Russian MiGs and snipers and artillery craters…” As one of millions of United States combat veterans, Turner shares an invisible wound called moral injury. And, as a member of that community who is a writer, he answers the call to support others who don’t have an outlet to sort through what they brought home with them. For seven years, Turner was an infantryman who deployed to both Iraq and Bosnia-Herzegovina. He says

Vrsaljko infortunio Croazia Foto Yahoo Sport UK

Durante questa settimana più di qualche allenatore avrà dormito poco o nulla. Il motivo? La famigerata sosta per gli impegni delle varie Nazionali che, tra test amichevoli e incontri di Nations League, si sono affrontate senza esclusione di colpi. Il bilancio degli infortuni è certamente negativo. Il Napoli dovrà rinunciare a Vlad Chiriches che in Romania-Montenegro ha rimediato la lesione del legamento crociato del ginocchio sinistro (operazione perfettamente riuscita), mentre per Dries Mertens soltanto una sublussazione alla spalla durante Belgio-Scozia (nulla di preoccupante secondo lo staff medico). La Juventus tira un sospiro di sollievo per Miralem Pjanic, nel frattempo tornato ad allenarsi dopo il problema muscolare che l'ha costretto ad abbandonare il campo nel finale di Bosnia-Irlanda del Nord. L'Inter, già alle prese con il guaio muscolare di Lautaro Martinez (convocato dall'Argentina e successivamente rientrato alla Pinetina), dovrà fare i conti con il ginocchio di Sime Vrsaljko che, al 20' di Spagna-Croazia, ha lasciato il posto al napoletano Rog. Mauro Icardi, invece, ha giocato regolarmente contro la Colombia con la maglia dell'Albiceleste e torna a disposizione di Luciano Spalletti. Il Milan può ritenersi fortunato: solo una distorsione alla caviglia sinistra per Patrick Cutrone contro l'Albania Under 21. In casa Roma il tecnico Eusebio Di Francesco ha vissuto attimi di paura per le sorti di Patrik Schick (fastidio all'inguine con la sua Repubblica Ceca) e Kostas Manolas (leggera distorsione alla caviglia con la Grecia). Niente di serio per entrambi. Restano da valutare le condizioni di Diego Perotti e Javier Pastore, intanto Alessandro Florenzi è tornato a lavorare con il gruppo. Questo il bollettino generale, ma siamo soltanto alla prima puntata di una lunga serie. Prossimo appuntamento a ottobre.

          Dzeko Berencana Akhiri Karier di AS Roma      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Roma - Edin Dzeko ternyata sangat senang membela AS Roma. Bahkan, dia siap mengakhiri karier di klub raksasa Italia tersebut.

Dzeko bergabung dengan Roma pada musim 2015/16 yang lalu. Ketika itu, Roma meminjamnya dari Manchester City. Semusim berselang, Roma mempermanenkan status Dzeko dengan membayar 11 juta euro kepada The Citizens.

Sejak musim pertamanya, Dzeko langsung jadi pemain penting bagi Roma. Eks pemain Wolfsburg tersebut jadi andalan Roma di lini serang. Karena alasan tersebut, Roma punya rencana besar untuk memberikan kontrak baru bagi Dzeko.

AS Roma telah moyodorkan tawaran kontrak yang membuat Dzeko berada di Stadion Olimpico hingga tahun 2021. Pada musim terakhirnya, Dzeko akan berusia 35 tahun. Usia yang cukup ideal baginya untuk memutuskan pensiun.

AS Roma pun sudah menyiapkan jabatan baru jika Dzeko bersedia pensiun. Dzeko akan mendapatkan posisi dalam jajaran Direktur Olahraga bersama Monchi dan Francesco Totti.

 

Modal Bagus

Sebagai gantinya, Dzeko akan mendapatkan pemotongan gaji dari Roma. Saat ini Dzeko menerima gaji senilai 4,5 juta euro. Dalam kontrak barunya, Roma hanya akan memberi gaji sebesar 4 juta euro pada pemain asal Bosnia tersebut.

Ada dua modal bagus yang dimiliki oleh Dzeko untuk bisa menjadi Direktur Olahraga di Roma. Pertama, Dzeko baru saja mengantongi gelar manajemen olahraga dari Universitas Sarajevo.

Kedua, Dzeko punya kemampuan berbicara dalam banyak bahasa. Dzeko mampu berbicara bahasa Bosnia, Ceko, Jerman, Inggris, dan Italia. Jadi, ini akan memudahkannya menjalin relasi dengan para pemandu bakat di dunia.

Ely Air Lines
By Mike Ely and Linda Street-Ely

Linda: Apart from war-related flying, weather research, search and rescue, mercy flights, and such, when we consider travel by air it brings us thoughts of adventure waiting on the horizon. But travel does more than jet us away from home. When we go to faraway places we learn about other cultures. If we are open to it, we also learn about ourselves, outside our comfort zone.

We re-evaluate values; experiences versus things. For example:

- Climbing to the top of Sniper Tower in Mostar, Bosnia and witnessing the messages of peace and remembrance in street art;

- Finding the Pittman Apartment building in Saigon—the one in the iconic photo of a helicopter lifting some of the last few people out of the country as the enemy rolled down the streets in tanks;

- Our souls soaking in beautiful Cambodia and her lovely people who have suffered immensely, yet their art is healing a wounded nation.

We’ve seen firsthand how God uses art to heal in Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe. It’s powerful. We’ve met survivors and descendants of those who suffered. We’ve heard their stories and they have moved us. Experience versus things? There is no souvenir of that worth.

Mike: There’s so much more to the universe than the little space we take up. Most people who travel report a significantly deeper sense of connection to the rest of the humanity. But to get this benefit, we must be immersed in the culture we visit. Cruises, resorts, and shopping don’t show us the real world. To be in the neighborhoods and visit people in their homes, to discover their customs, traditions, daily life, is to gain appreciation for our differences and similarities.

I flew a trip to the Dominican Republic for the wedding of the French Prince Louis Alphonse, Duke of Anjou to the daughter of a friend of my boss. My co-pilot and I did not attend the wedding but remained in the country for a week, put up at an exclusive resort. Resort life did not give much of a window into the lives of the people in the D.R. All around the outside of the compound were ramshackle homes, most only half built. These people worked behind the scenes at the resort but were not allowed to interact with guests. We were discouraged from leaving the compound except in one of the resort vehicles to and from the airport.

I contrast this with Alex, our enterprising tuk-tuk driver in Siem Reap, Cambodia. He took us to his village and his home. We tasted local herbs and learned about how a neighbor extracts sap from a tree, rising early to boil it carefully for hours in a wide ten-gallon cast iron bowl hung crudely over a fire to make sweet syrup, which he sells in the afternoon. Cambodian children warmed our hearts as they walked dirt roads with their arms around each other—buddies, like kids everywhere.

We are enriched as we travel beyond our borders to truly live in God's creation.

          09/12 Links Pt2: Soviet Antisemitism in a British Guise; Interview with Colonel Richard Kemp; Artist turns Kassam rockets into flowers and mezuzahs      Cache   Translate Page      
From Ian:

Soviet Antisemitism in a British Guise
Most of all, there was the Soviet practice of wheeling out “citizens of Jewish nationality” to denounce Zionism as a “racist” tool of “imperialism.” In March 1983, the Soviet news agency TASS even published a definition of Zionism drawn up by the state-run “Jewish Anti-Zionist Committee” that read as follows:

“In its essence, Zionism is a concentration of extreme nationalism, chauvinism, and racial intolerance, justification of territorial seizure and annexation, armed adventurism, a cult of political arbitrariness and impunity, demagogy and ideological sabotage, sordid maneuvers and perfidy.”

To my mind, the most obvious question here to Jeremy Corbyn, The Morning Star, and those of a similar pedigree, is this: Is there anything in this Soviet definition of Zionism that you disagree with? Make no mistake, the answer is critically important, because it is exactly this characterization of Zionism that grounded both the USSR’s domestic persecution of its Jewish community, and its international alignment with Arab regimes and terrorist groups.

If the answer is to disagree with this formulation — highly unlikely, given that Corbyn himself was present at dozens of left-wing political gatherings during the 1970s and ’80s where Soviet and Arab antisemitic literature was distributed — then it is a disingenuous one. Because when Corbyn and those in his camp speak and write about the triangle of Jews, Zionism, and Israel, these are the terms in which they think, and have always thought.

That is why Corbyn’s house journal uses terms like “embittered fifth column” to describe their leader’s Jewish opponents — also used by Valery Emelyanov, an official Soviet ideologue, in 1978 to describe the “internal danger” posed by Soviet Jews. It’s why they have no qualms about saying that Jewish leaders opposed to Corbyn have “tasted blood,” despite the associations with the antisemitic blood libel that such a metaphor unleashes; then again, Vladimir Begun, a particularly toxic Soviet antisemite, wrote with great enthusiasm of the “bloodthirstiness” that was inherent in “Zionist gangsterism.”

Given the number of occasions that Corbyn publicly defended the Soviet regime — “The Soviet Union makes far greater nursery provision than this country” (1984), “I do not believe that [the USSR] has ever intended to invade western Europe” (1990) — he was clearly well aware of Moscow’s stance on all the key international matters of the time, as well as its propaganda practices. That doesn’t make him a spy, but it does make him an ideological fellow-traveler. And as The Morning Star has demonstrated by defending Corbyn with an ugly rhetorical assault on British Jews, that Soviet-inspired journey rolls on.

Yisreal Medad: An Exercise in Deconstruction
Deconstruction is a literary term indicating "a critique of the relationship between text and meaning ".

I found this poem, "Everything in Our World Did Not Seem to Fit" by Naomi Shihab Nye here. It is an example of "new Palestinian poetry". Excuse me, "Arab Palestinian poetry". Ms. Nye's family roots are in Sinjil, just down the road from Shiloh where I live.

I realized that here poem is a literal work of deconstruction - of history, of Jewish national identity, of politics and of simple rational logic.

Let's deconstruct that literary work.

Once they started invading us.
Actually, the Arabs invaded Eretz-Yisrael in 638 CE. Moreover, despite the loss of political independence, Jews continued to reside in the Land of Israel, if in small numbers depending on the conditions and crcumstances of the various occupiers.

Taking our houses and trees, drawing lines, pushing us into tiny places.
Throughout the Zionist resettlement enterprise, almost all the land was purchased from its owners.

It wasn’t a bargain or deal or even a real war.
The Arab terror war against Jews in 1920, 1921, 1929, 1936-1939 and the 1947 war was real as were the fedyeen and the PLO's launching in 1964.
Interview with Colonel Richard Kemp
A United Nations report on recent violent clashes along the Israel-Gaza border hasn’t been written yet, but international terrorism expert Richard Kemp already knows it will condemn Israel for defending its borders against armed hordes.

Kemp, a retired British army officer who has watched, and fought against, terrorism around the world for 30 years, will tell an audience in Hamilton Thursday that’s the traditional response of a world community that doesn’t want to face up to terrorism.

In an interview ahead of his appearance, Kemp said the recent attacks on the Gaza border were just the latest phase of ongoing efforts by the terrorist group Hamas to smash the Jewish state.

It’s a campaign built around Hamas’ standard tactic of sprinkling its terrorists among civilians in the hope Israel’s response will result in civilian deaths that can, in turn, spark international outrage against the country.

“By creating a situation of violent disorder, breaking through the fence and attacking Israeli communities Hamas hope to provoke Israel in the hope that Israel’s reaction will result in many of (Hamas’) own people being killed,” he said.

Kemp said the tactic has worked to a degree – even fair-minded citizens around the world who understand a country’s right to defend itself are made uncomfortable by the sight of civilians being shot by Israeli soldiers.

“Even if people are against Israel, most sane people can understand that a country has to respond if it is attacked, if rockets are launched at it or attack tunnels are dug underneath it. Most people can accept that even if they don’t like it,” Kemp said.

“Even if they accept that they can’t understand how a civilized country like Israel can gun down people involved in peaceful demonstrations. We know they’re not peaceful demonstrations, but that is how it’s portrayed.”



New York Times Stumbles in a Strange Front-Page Antisemitism Story
A front-page New York Times news article appears under the headline “U.S. Revives Rutgers Bias Case In New Tack on Anti-Semitism.”

The Times article hypes what it describes as a “significant policy shift.” It claims that the federal education department and its assistant secretary, Kenneth Marcus, “put the weight of the federal government behind a definition of anti-Semitism that targets opponents of Zionism.”

It goes on to claim that the Education Department “adopted a hotly contested definition of anti-Semitism that included ‘denying the Jewish people the right to self-determination’ by, for example, ‘claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor’ and ‘applying double standards by requiring of’ Israel ‘a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.'”

It’s extremely strange that The New York Times would all of a sudden describe this particular definition of anti-Semitism as “hotly contested.” The Times itself, as recently as this month, published two articles describing the exact same definition as “internationally accepted.”

On September 4, the Times published a Reuters dispatch: “LONDON — Britain’s opposition Labour Party adopted an internationally accepted definition of anti-Semitism on Tuesday.” An Associated Press dispatch published by the Times the same day begins, “LONDON — Britain’s main opposition Labour Party on Tuesday adopted an internationally recognized definition of anti-Semitism.” On July 26, a Times-written article from London also referred to the same definition as “internationally accepted.”

Got that? When the British Labour Party adopts the definition, the Times describes it, accurately, as “internationally accepted.” Yet when the US government tries to enforce the definition on an American college campus, then all of a sudden the Times describes the definition as “hotly contested.” In fact, the definition is internationally accepted everywhere except in The New York Times newsroom, or at least in that portion of it responsible for the Rutgers article.
Sightless in Bethlehem
“Israel made me hate it” has long been a common theme among Jewish critics of Israel. In fact, New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman practically built his career out of it, winning a Pulitzer Prize for a book based on the claim that he was an uncritical supporter of Israel until he covered the 1982 Lebanon war, where he saw outrageous Israeli behavior that changed his mind.

That version of Friedman’s biography turned out to be a fabrication. In 1990, pro-Israel activists revealed that he actually had been a hostile critic of Israel all the way back to his days as a student at Brandeis University, in the early 1970s. He was the leader of a student group that publicly derided Israel’s Labor government for not negotiating with Yasir Arafat, and condemned the Jewish community for protesting against Arafat’s infamous speech at the United Nations.

But back in 1990, before there was an internet, it wasn’t hard for anyone to get away with misrepresenting his biography. The exposure of Friedman’s lies was buried, and he was soon promoted to the position of op-ed columnist for the Times, a perch from which he has bashed Israel on countless occasions.

Now it looks like a new generation is taking up where Friedman left off in the department of creative autobiographical writing. Case in point: Jacob Plitman, the 27 year-old editor of the far-left magazine Jewish Currents.

Recently, a major article in the New York Jewish Week featured Plitman, describing him as being at the center of an “emerging new Jewish left” that is more willing than its elders to criticize Israel. And how did Plitman get to be a critic of Israel? You guessed it—Israel made him hate it.

As a youngster, “his parents sent him to a Young Judea camp.” Plitman “soaked up its messaging on Israel and Zionism,” so much so that he decided to spend his gap year in Israel. And then came The Great Disillusionment.

“His rosy view of Zionism began to change,” the article reported, when Plitman “visited Bethlehem” (interesting choice for a Jewish tourist) “and came face to face with Palestinians for the first time. ‘The things that I saw there were more powerful than my ability to ignore them’,” Plitman told the Jewish Week. As a result, Plitman and his magazine now devote themselves to railing against “the occupation” and “the settlers.”

That’s his version. But I have my suspicions. Here’s why.


Israel among 'shameful' countries abusing human rights activists, according to U.N.
The United Nations on Wednesday listed Israel among 38 "shameful" countries, which it said had carried out reprisals or intimidation against people cooperating with it on human rights, through killings, torture and arbitrary arrests. Allegations of ill-treatment, surveillance, criminalisation, and public stigmatization campaigns targeting victims and human rights defenders were also included on the list.

Israel earned its spot on the list for it's ongoing legal battle against Human Rights Watch representative Omar Shakir, who's visa wasn't extended and who's deportation was ordered last May on the grounds of supporting the BDS movement. Interior minister Deri who ordered the deportation last May said he acted on the recommendation of the Strategic Affairs who had gathered information showing that Shakir “is an active and consistent supporter of boycotting Israel.”

Humans Right Watch challenged the decision and accused Israel of trying to silence criticism on its human right's record and that going after Shakir was an attempt to go after HRW as a whole.

Shakir remains in the country after the Jerusalem District Court backtracked on its original decision to go through with the deportation and the case remains under review.

The UN report did not highlight how it categorized the case against Shakir and why it would place Israel on the "shameful' list.
This Week in Julia Salazar She had a trust fund, her ancestors were Catholic elites, and she has a new version of her conversion story.
A state senate race that was once hailed as a test of the rising strength and power of insurgent socialists has devolved into a full-fledged New York City tabloid circus, featuring charges of lies, identify fraud, theft, and an affair with New York Mets legend Keith Hernandez.

And that was just last week.

Every time the life story of first-time state senate candidate Julia Salazar, 27, seems it can’t get any more convoluted, it does. First, questions were raised about her religious background and political affiliation, after it was revealed she grew up in a Christian family and was a registered Republican who led an anti-abortion group in college before running for office as a Jewish socialist. Then, her self-identification as an immigrant came under fire — she was born in Miami — and her own brother went to town on her claims that she is from a working-class background. Next came revelations of a complex legal dispute with Hernandez’s wife that had led to Salazar being arrested on identity-impersonation charges; she doggedly pursued a defamation countersuit that was ultimately settled in her favor. Amid that story, legal documents surfaced showing her lawyer pointing to “Ms. Salazar trust Account records showing in excess of $600,000” in assets in 2011 and therefore no incentive to steal from Hernandez’s wife.

Now the campaign has confirmed Salazar has had substantial assets held in trust for her. “Julia’s father, who played a very limited role in raising her after her parents’ divorce, was not able to work due to disability in the final years of his life, but on his death in 2009 he left a house and considerable retirement savings; those assets were put in a trust to be divided evenly between Julia and her brother,” campaign spokesman Michael Kinnucan said. “Julia does not have direct access to the trust; the trustee is a relative in Colombia.”

On September 13, Salazar will face off with incumbent Senator Martin Malavé Dilan; the primary winner is all but assured of victory in November.

Salazar’s bid, which has won endorsements from and/or appearances with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Cynthia Nixon, and Nina Turner of Bernie Sanders’s Our Revolution, has even drawn attention in her father’s homeland of Colombia, where a genealogist’s findings further undermine her early campaign claims of having come from a working-class mixed Jewish-Christian family and raise questions about how aware of her own Colombian heritage she has sought to be, despite her repeated statements identifying with it. Meanwhile, interviews with the candidate and with Jewish religious leaders show her story about converting to Reform Judaism could not have happened as she has described it to multiple reporters, because the person she now says guided her conversion process was not an ordained rabbi and also was, in any case, not affiliated with Columbia University the year she initially said she converted through the Columbia/Barnard Hillel.

According to Maria Emilia Naranjo Ramos, a genealogist with the Colombian Academy of Genealogy and Historic Academy of Córdoba, the Salazars have for generations been a prosperous family in Colombia that has played a prominent role in civic and political life. Far from being the daughter of struggling immigrants of mixed Jewish-Catholic religious heritage, which early news reports described her as based on her statements and those of her campaign, Julia Salazar is the scion of longtime Latin-American Catholic elites.
Citizens Union drops endorsement of Julia Salazar, citing 'not correct' information about her academic credentials
A good government group has withdrawn its backing of Julia Salazar for state Senate, saying the candidate provided information about her academic credentials that proved to be incorrect.

Citizens Union had previously issued its “preference” — the term the group uses rather than endorsement — for Salazar, whose campaign has been plagued in recent weeks by revelations about misrepresentations of her past religious and political beliefs and her immigration status.

“Citizens Union is hereby rescinding the preference it expressed for Julia Salazar in the Democratic Primary for New York State Senate District 18,” Randy Mastro, the chair of the group, said in a statement. “Salazar recently admitted that the information she originally provided to Citizens Union about her academic credentials was not correct, so Citizens Union has decided to express no preference in this race.”

A campaign spokesman called it an “error in her endorsement application.”

"Julia regrets that an error in her endorsement application led to Citizens Union rescinding its endorsement, but remains committed to working with Citizens Union and others opposed to Albany corruption if elected to take money out of politics and clean up Albany,” he said.

Gillum Aligns With Groups That Support Boycotts of Israel
Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum has aligned himself with several prominent anti-Semitic organizations known for promoting boycotts of Jewish goods and individuals, fueling questions about how the Democratic candidate would handle issues of import to the state's large pro-Israel community.

Gillum, who is riding a progressive a wave of young Democrats highly critical of Israel, is running against Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.), a prominent Israel supporter. The Democrat has a history of working with several organizations promoting the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, or BDS, an anti-Semitic movement that seeks to wage economic and political warfare on the Jewish state.

Gillum's open association with these organizations is raising questions in the pro-Israel community, particularly as U.S. states seek to slash ties with BDS organizations and prevent taxpayer funds from supporting these movements. While Gillum has committed to "push back against anti-Israel efforts, like BDS," he has not distanced himself from several organizations leading the charge.

DeSantis, meanwhile, has positioned himself firmly against the BDS movement and is the co-author of legislation that will protect American businesses from being pressured into backing Israel boycotts. The issue is likely to be raised with both candidates as the gubernatorial contest heats up in a state with many Jewish voters.

DeSantis said he is concerned and dismayed by Gillum's ties to radical anti-Israel groups.

"In all my years in Florida, I’ve never seen a candidate for state office who has been as anti-Israel as Andrew Gillum," DeSantis told the Washington Free Beacon in an interview. "He opposes our embassy in Jerusalem, he does not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal and indivisible capital, and he even criticizes Israel’s response against Hamas [militants] in May of 2018. His anti-Israel views are part and parcel of his overall far left wing, Democrat socialist agenda. He doesn’t share the values of the vast majority of people in Florida with his position."
Former ambassador to U.N. Prosor writes scathing piece against Corbyn
Prosor wrote that during his tenure as ambassador to the UK from 2007 to 2011, “the extreme-Left had started to dominate debate on Israel, not with rational, legitimate criticism but with irrational, racist hatred. I saw antisemitic poison, tropes of ‘Zionist control,’ being injected from the political fringes into the arteries of British public life. Demonstrations outside my embassy turned violent.”

Prosor said that Corbyn was neither the most charismatic or the smartest of the politicians who attended anti-Israel gatherings at the time, “but he was without doubt one of the most committed. As was his director of strategy, Seamus Milne.”

Corbyn,” according to Prosor, “can’t solve Labour’s antisemitism problem, because he embodies it.” He called the Labour Party leader an “equal opportunities terrorist sympathizer,” saying that whatever the terrorist group – be it the PLO, Hezbollah, or Hamas – they could count on Corbyn’s support as long as their target was Israelis or Jews.

“Corbyn didn’t invent the crank politics of conspiracy theory and Jew-hatred. But he has taken it from the fringe meetings of the far-Left and placed it on the front-benches of the House of Commons,” Prosor wrote.

He concluded: “This is not just an issue for the Labour Party, or for a British Jewish community feeling threatened and vulnerable. Corbyn is an embarrassment for Britain. Around the world, all who, as I do, love and admire Britain are watching and hoping that the British public, famed for their decency, tolerance and sense of fair play, stand together and say, enough is enough.”
Top Corbyn aide said working in parliament despite rejected security clearance
A top aide to UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was refused clearance required to work in parliament over security concerns but has worked there regularly anyway, entering with the help of other staff members, Huffington Post UK reported Wednesday.

Corbyn’s private secretary Iram Awan was hired in late 2017 but was denied clearance due to concerns by security services over her associates, the report said. There were no details on who those associates were or how they could compromise security.

Despite this, Awan has regularly been working in the Commons, the report said, with other Labour staffers routinely meeting her at the entrance and waving her in to security personnel, apparently as a supposed visitor. The report alleged that this behavior has been practiced for the past nine months.

“Visitor passes are for visitors only,” a parliament spokesperson told the news site. “They cannot be used to carry out work on the parliamentary estate. While we are unable to comment on specific cases, any alleged breach of the rules on passes will be investigated by the House authorities.”

The report said little is known of Awan, but noted that she has donated to Helping Households Under Great Stress, a group that seeks to “provide financial, emotional, and practical support and advice to Muslim households impacted by counter-terrorism, national security and extremism-related laws, policies and procedures in the UK and abroad.”
Another Top Corbyn Aide Working Without Security Clearance
Another top Corbyn adviser, Andrew Murray, has reportedly been working in the Labour Leader’s Commons office for eight months without the required security clearance. His application has been pending for over a year..

Andrew Murray was a member of the Communist Party of Great Britain until he joined Labour two years ago.

A quick glance at the parliamentary pass application form might explain why so many of Corbyn’s team have been having trouble. Question 30 asks if applicants have ever been associated with people or groups who have “intended to overthrow or undermine Parliamentary democracy by political, industrial, or violent means?” A number of Corbyn’s top team are probably going to need more than half a page to give full details on that one…
British MP of Palestinian Descent Condemns “anti-Semitic” Posters, as Labour Party Investigates Infiltration by Iran
A British Member of Parliament of Palestinian Arab descent has denounced the defacing of bus-stops in London with “Israel is a racist endeavour” posters as “blatantly anti-Semitic,” The Jewish Chronicle reported Thursday.

Liberal Democrat MP Layla Moran, who represents Oxford West and Abingdon, told the BBC: “I’m a Palestinian… The fact that this has come from a group that purportedly is speaking for Palestinians, I take great offence at myself, because I think it is blatantly antisemitic.” She clarified that “there are extremes in the Israeli government… But to say that an entire country is racist is entirely wrong.”

Moran was responding to comments made by Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, a close ally of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who stated that “It is not at all anti-Semitic to describe a state as racist.”

The posters were meant to mock the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism, which Labour reluctantly adopted in full last week with a caveat vowing “free speech” on Israel. The IHRA definition, which gives calling “a state of Israel… a racist endeavour” as an example of anti-Semitism.
Why Rachel Shabi's 'alliance of colour' will go nowhere
Our token Mizrahi Corbynista has been gracing the columns of the Guardian as a pundit commentating on local politics. But on the question of the antisemitism rampant in the far-left of the UK Labour party, a note of anguish has been creeping into our Shabi's writings.
Rachel Shabi

In response to a Labour centrist MP's charge that Labour is 'institutionally racist', her latest piece acknowledges that antisemitism is a real problem in Jeremy Corbyn's faction. What about anti-Zionism? Is there such a thing as antisemitic anti-Zionism? 'Zionism is both racist and anti-racist', she fence-sits unhelpfully, despite having written a book portraying Mizrahim as victims of Israel's Ashkenazi establishment.

She finds the view common among leftwing ideologues that Jews are 'white' allies of the Christian West to be wrong. "We are a racialised minority' she protests. She herself is a Mizrahi Jew of Iraqi origin.

Her answer is to start a Jewish-black-Asian-Muslim alliance that would relaunch Jews as 'people of colour'. This alliance is not based on shared Judeo-Christian values. 'If there is a historic sharing of values it is a Jewish-Muslim one,' she writes.
Corbyn in 2015 – let British jihadis travel to Syria
Jeremy Corbyn’s antisemitic record has been under scrutiny for several weeks now, and rightly so. But let’s not forget other issues which are important, starting with our own national security.

He should never be entrusted with the security of the United Kingdom. It would be seriously endangered.

Look back to early 2015. Islamic State was on the march. No wonder – its strength and confidence had been boosted by a big influx of foreign fighters from Europe. They included Britain’s very own “Jihadi John”, who began his beheading spree in 2014.

Those fighters were a top priority for Western intelligence services, in large part because there were fears they could return to the West deeply indoctrinated, highly trained, and ready to carry out devastating terrorist attacks.

Jeremy Corbyn was asked about this issue at the time. He didn’t sound very convinced.
UK's Corbyn stuns by blasting Hungarian PM for anti-Semitism
British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn accused Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban of "pandering to anti-Semitism" ahead of a vote in the European Parliament over whether to censure Hungary for breaching core EU values.

Corbyn, himself under fire for rampant anti-Semitism in his party and for his own anti-Israel and anti-Semitic comments, stunned with a tweet on Tuesday that said, "Labour MEPs will vote to hold Viktor Orban's government in Hungary to account. The Conservatives must do the same, and [British Prime Minister] Theresa May should condemn his attacks on judicial and media independence, denial of refugee rights, and pandering to anti-Semitism and Islamophobia."

Labour has been battling accusations of anti-Semitism for months, and Corbyn has previously apologized for what he has described as "pockets" of anti-Semitism in his party.

Former U.K. Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks has called Corbyn an anti-Semite and said comments revealed last week that Corbyn made about British Zionists five years ago were the most offensive by a senior U.K. politician in half a century.
Anti-Israel Satmar group forges UK rabbis’ pro-Corbyn letter
A hassidic group disseminated a letter in support of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has come under fire for supporting antisemites, in which the signatures of haredi leaders in the UK were forged.

The Jewish Community Council of North London tweeted overnight Tuesday to “confirm and clarify this letter is fake and bears no authority from any of the assigned names.”


The letter, purportedly from the leadership of London’s haredi umbrella organization, the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations, claims to have the support of the UOHC’s Principal Rabbinical Authority Ephraim Padwa, Senior Dayan (religious court judge) S. Friedman, and 27 others.

US takes on anti-Israel BDS activities on university campuses
The U.S. Education Department's Office of Civil Rights has decided to adopt the international definition of anti-Semitism, which defines Judaism not only as a religion but also an ethnicity and includes holding Jews responsible for Israel's actions as a form of anti-Semitism, Israel Hayom learned Wednesday.

According to a letter written by Assistant Education Secretary for Civil Rights Kenneth L. Marcus to the Zionist Organization of America, anyone who acts "to deny the right of the Jewish people to self-determination, on the grounds that the State of Israel's existence is a racist endeavor" or applies double standards to Israel that it does not apply to any other democratic country will be deemed an anti-Semite.

The ZOA lauded what it called the "groundbreaking decision," saying, "This definition accurately addresses how anti-Semitism is expressed today; it recognizes that Jew-hatred can be camouflaged as anti-Israelism or anti-Zionism. The OCR is not only reassessing the evidence already in the record; the agency is also going to determine whether a hostile environment for Jewish students currently exists at Rutgers [University]."

Pro-Palestinian activists in the United States have warned the move will hinder pro-Palestinian efforts as any such activity will be deemed anti-Semitic.
Daphne Anson: Rogues with a Brogue
In Belfast on Tuesday, heavily outnumbering pro-Israel counter-protesters, dozens of raucous members of an outfit calling itself BDS Ireland (part of part of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement along with Sinn Fein) yell their opposition to Northern Ireland's first friendly football match against Israel in Windsor Park. Over 5,000 Israel-haters signed a petition demanding the match's cancellation, but the match went ahead, the home team winning by 3 goals to nil.


Footballer James Rodríguez Caves In To Israel Haters After Being Subjected to Online Abuse
Colombian footballer James Rodríguez, considered one of the best players of his generation, was recently in Israel. And he wanted his almost 100 million (!) followers on social media to know just how amazing it is here. So he posted the following on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

The Israeli flag triggered the haters, resulting in the young footballer being subjected to a barrage of hate – which he clearly was not prepared for. Unfortunately, he caved in, and replaced the tweet and postings with the identical picture and wording, sans Israeli flag.

Interestingly enough, his next posting is still up, despite clearly identifying Israel and not “Palestine.”
Honest Reporting: Surf’s Up in Gaza: Riding the Anti-Israel Wave
In a long and somewhat labyrinthine article in The Independent, author and academic Andy Martin focuses on a documentary film about a Palestinian surfing club in Gaza.

Feeding the prejudices of The Independent’s readership, every activity in Gaza, even leisure, is turned into an opportunity to attack Israel and spread inaccuracies and falsehoods.

Martin makes it crystal-clear what he thinks about Israel:
Set aside the whole dubious history of Israel, the events of 1948 that the Palestinians refer to as the Nakba (or “Catastrophe”), the Six Day War, the occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, the continued imperial expansion and slow-motion ethnic cleansing known euphemistically as “settlement”. Even set aside, most recently, the “Nation State” law that spells out, reiterates and reinforces a condition of apartheid. Do you want to know the final straw? They won’t allow surfboards into Gaza. They are obviously part of some sinister Hamas-inspired conspiracy. They may exhibit coded subversive messages on stickers applied to their decks, such as “Life’s a beach”, or “Surf’s Up, Dude”.

Are surfboards “illegal” in Gaza?

So let’s set aside the whole dubious references to “ethnic cleansing” and “apartheid” that Martin casually tosses into the water and deal with his allegations regarding surfboards. Are they really “illegal” in Gaza as the article and the headline suggest?
Merkel: ‘No excuse’ for far-right violence, attack on kosher restaurant
Chancellor Angela Merkel assured parliament Wednesday she takes seriously Germans’ concerns about crimes committed by migrants and pledged a strong response, but condemned recent demonstrations as “hateful,” saying there is “no excuse” for expressions of hate, Nazi sympathies or violence in response.

The comments come after the killing of a German man for which an Iraqi and a Syrian have been arrested prompted days of anti-migrant protests in the eastern German city of Chemnitz that at times turned violent.

Neo-Nazis were seen giving the stiff-armed Hitler salute in the largest demonstration, the day after the killing, which attracted some 6,000 people, and on the sidelines of the protest masked men threw stones and bottles at a kosher restaurant yelling “Jewish pig, get out of Germany.”

The day before, in spontaneous protests by hundreds immediately after the killing, several foreigners were attacked and injured in the streets.

Merkel assured lawmakers that her government was equally aware of its responsibility to take the wider concerns of the public seriously, and that it was working with “all resolution” on the issue.

“We are especially troubled by the severe crimes in which the alleged perpetrators were asylum-seekers,” she said. “This shocks us… (and) such crimes must be investigated, the perpetrators have to be taken to court and punished with the severity of the law.”
Pig guts thrown at office of Australian lawmaker whose wife is Jewish
The district office of an Australian member of Parliament whose wife is Jewish was targeted by racists who threw pig’s entrails at the front door.

The early Wednesday morning attack follows an earlier attack by the neo-Nazi group Antipodean Resistance on September 1 on another office belonging to the same MP, Labor lawmaker Mike Kelly, in which the group plastered swastika stickers on the door.

Mike Kelly’s wife is Jewish.

The attack involving the pig’s entrails took place in the New South Wales city of Queanbeyan, located just 10 miles from Australia’s capital Canberra. The swastika attack took place in the coastal town of Bega, 135 miles from Queanbeyan.

A former military attorney, Col. Mike Kelly joined the Australian military serving in Somalia, East Timor and Bosnia, and was among senior Australian military personnel who served in the Iraq War. In 1993, he was awarded the Chief of the General Staff Commendation.

“The series of attacks directed at my electorate offices are evidence of the need for constant vigilance and the confrontation of extremist groups in our country,” Kelly told JTA.

“If the perpetrators think that they will intimidate me into refraining from defending Israel or supporting our Jewish community they are deluded,” Kelly said. “Actions like this only spur me to greater efforts and commitment. I have faced much worse threats in my Army career and I will continue to fight racism and ignorance wherever I find it.”
Database helps Jewish families obtain properties' restitution in Poland
In the small park behind the only synagogue in this city to have survived World War II, Yoram Sztykgold looks around with a perplexed expression.

An 82-year-old retired architect, Sztykgold immigrated to Israel after surviving the Holocaust in Poland. He tries in vain to recognize something from what used to be his childhood home.

“It’s no use,” he says after a while. “To me this could be anywhere.”

Sztykgold’s unfamiliarity with the part of Grzybowska Street where he spent his earliest years is not due to any memory loss. Like most of Warsaw, his parents’ apartment building was completely bombed out during the war and leveled, along with the rest of the street. His former home is now a placid park that is a favorite hangout for mothers pushing baby carriages and pensioners his age.

The dramatic changes in Warsaw’s landscape have bedeviled efforts for decades to obtain restitution for privately owned properties like Sztykgold’s childhood home, making it difficult for survivors like him to identify assets that may have belonged to their families.

But for many restitution claimants in the capital, identifying assets will become easier thanks to a recent breakthrough with an unlikely source: the establishment of a first-of-its-kind searchable database. Users need only type in the name of their family to obtain a complete overview of all the assets they may claim under a new restitution drive in Warsaw.
Israel’s Ride Vision plans to make motorcycling safer
As the race heats up toward the launch of autonomous vehicles, state-of-the-art technologies like ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) are being designed to prevent collisions. But motorcycles have been largely overlooked in the process.

According to a 2018 US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, fatalities in traffic crashes occur nearly 28 times more frequently for motorcycles than for passenger car occupants, and motorcycle drivers comprise 17 percent of all driver- and passenger-related fatalities. There were 5,286 fatal motorcycle crashes in 2016 in the US, a 5.1 percent increase from 2015, according to NHTSA.

Uri Lavi and Lior Cohen are avid motorcycle riders who want to bring computer safety smarts to two-wheelers. Their company Ride Vision just raised a $2.5 million seed round from YL Ventures for its patented CAT (Collision Aversion Technology) for motorcycles.

Lavi and Cohen previously worked together in Israel’s homeland security industry. Lavi went on to become CEO of PicScout and brought in Cohen to serve as VP of R&D.

PicScout developed a technology for identifying images on the web that may have been used or modified without permission and then notifying the copyright owners. The company was acquired in 2011 by Getty Images for $20 million.

Lavi and Cohen gained expertise in technologies such as artificial intelligence, neural networks, computer vision and threat detection that is relevant in their newest venture, though it is quite different.
’70s rock band America heading to Israel to ‘give everyone a night off’
When Dewey Bunnell and Gerry Beckley of the soft rock band America finally arrive in Israel for their long-planned October 9 and 10 performances in Caesarea, they intend to not only entertain the crowds, but also to learn a little about the country.

“We’re all geared up to see stuff,” said Bunnell, who splits his time between homes in Wisconsin and Los Angeles, and has never been to Israel.

Bunnell, 66, and Beckley, 65, are two of the original members of the 1970s-era band, which has been performing continuously since it began as a high school cover band.

They had planned to perform in Israel in the summer of 2014, but canceled due to the conflict in Gaza.

Even now, said Bunnell, speaking from his lakeside home in Wisconsin, he doesn’t know that much about Israel and its political situation.

“Every place has their issues, and I have to profess, I’m not versed in Israel,” he said. “I obviously follow the news, but the region is new to me. It’s just a matter of us going in with our eyes wide open and enjoying it. Our job is to entertain people; we’ve always made that point.”
Kim Kardashian signs deal with Israeli eyewear company
World-famous supermodel and reality TV star Kim Kardashian West will be heading back to Israel next year.

Israeli sunglasses company Carolina Lemke Berlin announced Wednesday that Kardashian West has signed a deal to join Bar Refaeli - the face of the brand - in an upcoming collaboration.

Supermodel and reality TV star Kim Kardashian West will be heading back to Israel next year.

Israeli sunglasses company Carolina Lemke Berlin announced Wednesday that Kardashian West has signed a deal to join Bar Refaeli – the face of the brand – in an upcoming collaboration.

The supermodel will fly to Israel in March “for a visit as part of our cooperation,” the company said. In addition to appearing in advertisements for the brand, Kardashian West will also design her own line of glasses for a limited-edition series sold by Carolina Lemke.

In a press release on Wednesday, the company said it selected Kardashian West, “the most famous woman in the United States, to be the face of the brand for at least two years, beginning in summer 2019.” The company said it will also be launching a website aimed at selling its products in the United States. Until now, the brand has been focused on Israel and Europe.
Afghan man sends gravely ill kids to heart center in Israel
Noorina is five years old and lives in Afghanistan. In July, her father brought her to Israel for lifesaving heart surgery arranged by Save a Child’s Heart (SACH), an Israeli medical charity based at Wolfson Medical Center in Holon.

When she is older, Noorina may be surprised to learn that an Afghan stranger willingly put himself and his family at risk to give her the gift of health.

Noorina was the fifth child from Afghanistan sent to SACH through the efforts of that same young Muslim father, who asked ISRAEL21c to call him Jangzapali, a pseudonym to hide his true identity.

“Jangzapali,” he explains, “means ‘victim of war.’”

Jangzapali is involved in all types of charity work and has built up an international social-media network over the past few years. Children needing urgent medical care are his top priority.

“Almost 10,000 [medical need] cases are registered with the Afghan Red Crescent. They are unable to do all cases, so through our broad network on social media, we arrange surgery for poor children in Afghanistan or India. For complicated cases they cannot handle, we work with Save a Child’s Heart,” he says.
Artist turns Kassam rockets into flowers and mezuzahs
Holding aloft a missile fragment, Gaza-area artist Yaron Bob explains to a Kann interviewer that not long ago the projectile had penetrated an Israeli car.

"The incredible Iron Dome is Israel's missile defense system. When rockets are fired into Israel, the Iron Dome shoots a missile to intercept the rocket, preventing destruction and the murder of innocent lives," says the description of one item on Bob's website.

"Bring Israel's heavenly protection into your home with this limited-edition Mezuzah made from an actual Iron Dome missile!"

"I cut it into rectangles, polish it, and craft the mezuzot. My mezuzot get grabbed up all over the world. They cost between $150-200."

Asked how much profit he can extract from a single Kassam missile, Bob makes a quick calculation and answers "About $2,000 per Kassam."

A tour of his storage area reveals a representative variety of the weapons constantly aimed at Israel's children: "Here are rockets that fell a month ago; this one's a 120mm, this one's a Grad. Wanna see a whole Grad?" he asks deferentially, and lifts one from the pile. "Made in China," he says. "This one here fell in Dimona."

The interviewer asks Bob,"How do you have all these types?" and Bob retorts, "How do they?"

          Madeleine McCann: Could May and Perhaps rejoin the hunt      Cache   Translate Page      

Madeleine McCann is back in the news. And it’s all abut the money.

The Metro tells us that the “hunt for Maddie McCann has cost £11600000 so far”.  Not quite. That’s what Scotland Yard’s Operation Grange has cost. The Met’s investigation into the vanishing of Madeleine McCann began in 2011. Before that Portuguese police were investigating the case of the British child who went missing on the Algarve in 2007.  That wasn’t without cost. And there was the private investigation funded by well-wishers and run by Madeleine McCann’s parents, Kate and Gerry McCann. The headline figure is wrong. But, then, the story isn’t about the missing child; it’s about us and if British readers can turn her into a talking point. Is she worth it?

The Metro oozes: “Speculation is growing into whether UK police will stop the hunt when the funding ends as no request for more cash has yet been made.” Who is speculating? Hopefully you are. And hopefully tomorrow you’ll tune in for an update on the single thread story spun out of control by a voracious media.

No news on the money means the story has been kickstarted as far afield as New Zealand, where the Herald announces: “Hunt for Madeleine McCann may end within three weeks.” When the word “may” appears in a headline you know your story is in trouble. But she was spotted “in a New Zealand supermarket”, so maybe the story is local to New Zealand after all?

She’s also been spotted in:

Canada,ItalySwedenPortugalSpainMoroccoMajorca,BelgiumBosniaFranceAustraliaBrazil,Wales, MaltaItalyGermanyAustralia, France, IndiaDubaiDorsetUSA and New Zealand (by boat).

In the Daily Record, readers are told: ‘Kate and Gerry McCann have vowed “the search will go on” for their missing girl amid reports police could shelve their hunt.’ Could. Or could not. An unnamed source tells us:

“They will never stop looking for Madeleine or hoping that one day she will be found. More than 11 years on there is still no evidence to suggest that she is dead or has been harmed. If the police search comes to an end, there are other avenues to explore. They have carefully managed the money in Madeleine’s Fund for that eventuality. Whether they choose to employ private investigators or go down another route is something for them to decide.”

To recap: There is no news.

          Comment on Camping updates: Myers Way cleanup promised; Delridge hillside encampment by Blinkyjoe      Cache   Translate Page      
I've been suggesting to whomever is in power and will listen: We need to treat this like a natural catastrophe. FEMA tents, the big ones. Set them up on T-5. T-5 sits vacant, and has infrastructure (Power, plumbing...). (Yes, I can see its being used now for some Military thing). One for foodservice, one for showers/ablution, two or more for sleeping. Put the residents on a rotating work schedule for foodservice and cleaning. Then ZERO TOLERANCE for camping. Round them up and take them to the camp. The Idaho court ruling declared it unconstitutional to disperse public camping 'if the person has nowhere else to go.' Well, now they would have someplace to go. When I was with Halliburton, We did it in Bosnia in 1996 for thousands of refugees.  
          Bàn chân Son Heung-min “tan nát” sau suất miễn nghĩa vụ quân sự      Cache   Translate Page      

Sau khi chấm dứt trận giao hữu với Chile, Son Heung-min cởi đôi giày và tất để lộ ra đôi bàn chân bầm dập.

Bàn chân Son Heung-min “tan nát” sau suất miễn nghĩa vụ quân sự - Ảnh 1.

Đôi bàn chân bầm dập của Son Heung-min sau một mùa hè thi đấu găng tay.

Hình ảnh đôi bàn chân với những móng bị cụt, tím đen, xiêu của Son Heung-min khiến người hâm mộ bóng đá Hàn Quốc và cá nhân chủ nghĩa tiền đạo này phải đau lòng. Đây là hệ quả của một quãng thời kì thi đấu liên tiếp không ngừng nghỉ vì những đích rất quan trọng với sự nghiệp của Son.

Bàn chân Son Heung-min “tan nát” sau suất miễn nghĩa vụ quân sự - Ảnh 2.

Với tấm HC vàng ASIAD 2018, Son Heung-min được miễn quân dịch.

Ngay khi trác tuyệt Anh kết thúc, ngôi sao sinh năm 1992 tức thì hội quân cùng đội tuyển Hàn Quốc tham dự World Cup 2018. Trở về từ Nga, Son Heung-min không được ngơi nghỉ nhiều nhưng mà tham gia chuyến du đấu Hè cùng đội bóng thành London.

Từ Mỹ, Son Heung-min đáp chuyến bay đến Indonesia chinh chiến ở sân chơi ASIAD 18. Đúng như sự kỳ vọng, tiền đạo 26 tuổi và đồng đội đã bảo vệ thành công ngôi quán quân, qua đó được miễn nghĩa vụ quân sự, như mục tiêu toàn đội đề ra ban đầu.

Bàn chân Son Heung-min “tan nát” sau suất miễn nghĩa vụ quân sự - Ảnh 3.

Son Heung-min phải di chuyển liên tục và thi đấu tới 8 trận chỉ trong 26 ngày.

Những tưởng sau ASIAD 18, Son Heung-min sẽ được dưỡng sức rồi đến Anh để khoác áo Tottenham thì kế hoạch lại đổi thay. Trở về Seoul, Son lại tập hợp ngay cùng đội tuyển, thi đấu 2 trận giao hữu gặp Costa Rica và Chile để ra mắt tân HLV Paulo Bento.

Không chỉ thi đấu với mật độ dày đặc, quãng đường chuyển di của Son Heung-min cũng lên đến hàng chục ngàn km bằng máy bay từ Mỹ, nước Anh đến Indonesia rồi về Hàn Quốc và mới nhất lại bay trở lại Anh để cùng Tottenham chuẩn bị cho mùa giải mới.

san sẻ về đích sắp tới, Son Heung-min cho hay: " Thật hạnh phúc vì lại được thi đấu ở Premier League và Champions League. Tôi sẽ vậy để được ra sân thẳng và ghi được nhiều bàn thắng. Tottenham là đội bóng mạnh và chúng tôi muốn lấy danh hiệu để cảm ơn những sự ủng hộ của người ngưỡng mộ".

lộ trình mùa hè của Son Heung-min

- London đến Seoul: Giao hữu với Honduras, Bosnia

- Seoul đến Áo: Giao hữu với Bolivia, Senegal

- World Cup 2018 tại Nga: 3 trận đấu đá chính

- St Petersburg đến Seoul: Sau World Cup 2018

- Seoul đến London, đến Los Angeles: Đá giao hữu với Barcelona

- Los Angeles đến Minneapolis: Đá giao hữu với Roma

- Minneapolis đến London

- Thi đấu trận mở đầu Premier League với Newcastle (10 phút)

- London đến Indonesia: 6 trận đấu tại Asian Games

- Indonesia về Seoul: Giao hữu với Costa Rica, Chile

- Seoul đến London: tập hợp cùng Tottenham

          Son Heung-min Kembali ke Tottenham dengan Senyum Lebar      Cache   Translate Page      

Jakarta - Striker Timnas Korea Selatan di Asian Games 2018, Son Heung-min, kembali ke Tottenham Hotspur. Ia tiba di markas klub pada Kamis sore WIB (13/9/2018).

"Lihat siapa yang kembali," begitu tulis admin Twitter Tottenham Hotspur sambil mengunggah foto Son Heung-min tersenyum lepas sembari memamerkan medali emas Asian Games 2018.

Kembalinya Son pada hari ini punya fakta menarik. Pada Kamis ini, tepat tiga tahun lalu, pemain 26 tahun itu menjalani debut di Tottenham Hotspur.

Son Heung-min mengaku sudah rindu kembali bertempur di Premier League bersama the Spurs. Ia meninggalkan klub London Utara itu setelah tampil pada laga perdana di Liga Premier 2018-2019 melawan Newcastle United (11/8/2018).

Son tiba di Bandung pada 13 Agustus 2018 dan selanjutnya gabung Timnas Korsel U-23 hingga akhirnya memenangi medali emas Asian Games 2018. Rombongan the Taeguk Warriors tiba kembali di Seoul dari Jakarta pada 3 September 2018.

Namun, Son tak langsung kembali ke Tottenham. Pasalnya, ia mendapat panggilan gabung Timnas Korsel senior untuk menjalani dua uji coba pada matchday FIFA, melawan Kosta Rika (7/9/2018) dan Chile (11/9/2018).

Total, Son sudah melewatkan tiga laga bersama the Spurs di Premier League 2018-2019 termasuk ketika membungkam Manchester United 0-3 di Old Trafford (28/8/2018).

Selama itu pula, rekan satu timnya, Lucas Moura, mampu mengambil alih peran yang ditinggalkannya. Kini, Son harus kembali berjuang untuk mendapatkan kembali tempatnya di skuat inti.

Tottenham tak bisa menunggu Son agar bisa kembali nyetel dalam waktu singkat. Spurs akan menjamu Liverpool pada laga pekan kelima kontra Liverpool (15/9/2018) serta menjalani laga tandang Liga Champions melawan Inter Milan pada 19 September 2018, Brighton & Hove Albion (23 September 2018), dan Watford (27 September 2018).

Punya Modal Apik

Melihat jadwalnya yang sangat padat selama musim panas hingga jelang musim gugur ini, Son dinilai mengalami keletihan. Yonhap menulis, laga kontra Chile menjadi pertandingan kedelapan yang dijalaninya dalam 26 hari terakhir.

Saat berada di Indonesia untuk tampil di Asian Games 2018, Son tampil selama 524 menit dalam enam pertandingan selama 16 hari.

Jika menengok jauh ke belakang, jadwal Son Heung-min memang luar biasa padat. Setelah tampil di laga terakhir Premier League 2017-2018, ia gabung Timnas Korsel untuk persiapan Piala Dunia 2018. 

Bersama the Taeguk Warriors, ia tampil dalam dua uji coba kandang (melawan Honduras dan Bosnia), kemudian terbang ke Austria untuk menjalani TC terakhir jelang ke Rusia. 

Di Piala Dunia 2018, Son tampil di seluruh pertandingan yang dijalani Timnas Korsel (tiga laga). Setelah tersingkir di penyisihan grup, Son punya waktu istirahat selama 20 hari di Korsel, dan kembali gabung Tottenham untuk persiapan musim 2018-2019.

Pada akhir Juni 2018, ia terbang ke Amerika Serikat bersama Spurs untuk menjalani turnamen pramusim. Mereka kembali ke London pada awal Agustus. Son masuk pada babak kedua pada laga perdana EPL musim ini kontra Newcastle.

"Saya rasa musim panas kali ini sama seperti musim panas sebelum-sebelumnya, hanya saya memang lebih banyak bepergian. Saya cenderung banyak bermain di musim panas. Dan bukan hanya saya saja yang punya banyak menit bermain. Pemain seperti Hwang Ui-jo dan Hwang Hee-chan juga baru kembali dari Asian Games. Keletihan hanya alasan semata," ujar Son mengomentari jadwalnya yang padat.

"Saya rindu tim saya. Saya senang bisa kembali bermain di Premier League dan Liga Champions. Sepanjang musim panas ini, saya pikir sudah belajar banyak tentang sepak bola," lanjutnya mengindikasikan ia siap kembali jadi andalan Tottenham Hotspur.

Bebas Wamil

Dengan medali emas Asian Games 2018, Son Heung-min diprediksi bisa tampil lepas bersama Tottenham. Hal itu karena ia sudah tak akan lagi diganggu keharusan menjalani wajib militer hingga dua tahun.

Praktis, fokusnya hanya tinggal menjaga posisinya di tim inti dan unjuk gigi membawa Tottenham Hotspur mencapai prestasi terbaik musim ini.

Introduction The Ottoman Sultanate which later became the seat of the Caliphate in 1517 was by no means perfect. A decline in Islamic thought, weakness in the Arabic language and closing the doors of ijtihad all had an impact on the implementation of Islam across the state. Yet despite this, the Ottoman State remained an Islamic State, and its concepts, criteria and convictions were Islamic. Legislation and administrative laws (kanun) were based on sharia, even if this was a tenuous link in some cases due to the decline in ijtihad, such as the devshirme, hereditary bay’a and tanzimat reforms. RELATED ARTICLE: Was the Ottoman Empire a Caliphate? When researching historical events, one must be aware that the written history contained in many books is unreliable because it contains the bias of the author or the period in which it was written. Many authors for example claim the Ottomans forced Muslims in Bosnia to convert to Islam or paint 600 years of Ottoman rule as cruel and repressive, which is simply untrue.

Monica Bellucci, apariţie spectaculoasă la Festivalul de la Veneţia. Sfatul actriţei, la 51 de ani: „Mâncaţi bine, beţi bine, râdeţi şi faceţi mult sex“

Actriţa italiană Monica Bellucci, în vârstă de 51 de ani, a avut o apariţie spectaculoasă pe covorul roşu al Festivalului de Film de la Veneţia.

Actriţa a păşit pe covorul roşu al prestigiosului eveniment purtând o rochie violet din dantelă, lungă, şi având părul prins într-o coadă lejeră, fiind aplaudată pentru ţinuta frumoasă, dar şi pentru aspectul fizic demn de invidiat. Italianca a participat la premiera filmului „On The Milky Road“ alături de cineastul bosniac Emir Kusturica şi de rivala din film, interpretată de actriţa Sloboda Micalovici.

În vremea războiului, lăptarul interpetat de Kusturica trece linia frontului pentru a le duce soldaţilor produsele sale. O tânără din sat – personaj jucat de Micalovici – se îndrăgosteşte de el şi speră să-i devină soţie când fratele ei, erou de război, se va întoarce acasă. Numai că şi fratele e pregătit de însurătoare, iar apariţia celei care ar urma să-i fie soţie, o misterioasă italiancă, schimbă întreaga poveste.



„Pentru Emir Kusturica, scenariul este doar o bază de pornire. Urmează multă improvizaţie, pentru că el venea dimineaţa cu o nouă idee şi trebuia să fim pregătiţi. A fost o provocare, dar a fost şi interesant, şi frumos să lucrez cu el, pentru că este un artist eclectic“, a declarat Belucci, citată de Ştirile Pro TV
Cât despre aspectul fizic, pentru care a fost atât de lăudată după apariţia de la Veneţia, artista a dezvăluit recent pentru „Telegrpah“ câteva lucruri surprinzătoare: nu-i place să meargă la sala de sport şi se răsfaţă cu prăjituri, paste, vin şi ţigări.
„Nu sunt o persoană care se trezeşte la 6 dimineaţa pentru a merge la sală. Adevărul este că îmi plac prăjiturile şi pastele, paharele cu vin şi, ocazional, ţigările. Sfatul meu este: mâncaţi bine, beţi bine, râdeţi şi faceţi sex mult. Restul vine de la sine“, a declarat Belucci.
Monica Bellucci s-a născut pe 30 sepembrie 1964 în Città di Castello, Italia, şi este considerată una dintre cele mai frumoase actriţe europene.
Iniţial, a început o carieră în domeniul juridic, dar, în timp ce era studentă a lucrat ca fotomodel. A debutat ca actriţă de televiziune în 1990, iar la Hollywood a devenit cunoscută doi ani mai târziu, cu rolul din filmul „Dracula“ al lui Francis Ford Coppola.
