          I quit my high-paying job to travel the world — and came back as the CEO of my own company      Cache   Translate Page      

Quit my job

  • I quit my job after 10 years of working at an aerospace brand and in finance.
  • By many measures, I had excelled in those roles — I earned great money and ran prestigious teams all over the world.
  • However, the 12-hour days and little free time became too much to bear, and I felt that life was passing me by.
  • So I quit my job to travel the world — and unexpectedly became a CEO. 

 

Ever since I was five years old, all I've ever wanted was to travel and meet people around the world. I grew up in communist Poland. The borders were closed, and passports were nearly impossible to get. Everyone around me said  I would never be able to see the world.

But I never believed it. I've always felt like a global citizen. 

Soon after communism collapsed in Poland, I put all of my drive and ambition into my education.

I came to the US, finished college in three years while working full time, graduating summa cum laude. I quickly got recruited by a multi billion-dollar global aerospace brand.

Within six months, I began leading global IT programs, creating and managing remote teams on four different continents and training thousands of members around the world from my laptop.

We accomplished amazing things, and soon new career opportunities poured in. I wanted to challenge myself and grow, so I moved to the financial industry.

I had finally made it to the VP level. Running large global programs and leading high-performance teams sounded prestigious. But each new career step was becoming more intrusive, stressful, office-bound, and time-consuming.

I spent agonizing hours in traffic getting to and from a job that was less than inspiring. My 12-hour work days were filled with spreadsheets, slide presentations, endless meetings, and canceled vacations.

Swiveling in my chair in my almost-corner office, I wondered: Is this all there is to life?

I started wondering what had happened. Where was the adventurous soul who wanted to travel the world? Now I could barely scrape together a week to get away.

Life was passing me by

Like many people I know, I was living on autopilot: finishing school, giving up the best years of my life to work, and postponing my dreams for the elusive idea of retirement. Deferring life was my norm.

Essentially, I was betting my entire life on the possibility of truly enjoying it near the end. The more I thought about it, the more the idea sounded like an irresponsible and risky gamble. There was only one option: I had to take time off to begin living — now.

Quit my job

The stakes were high — I was leaving behind my entire 10-year career and giving up the security of my income in exchange for one year of travel and living. I was scared, but the more I looked around, the more I realized that there are no guarantees in life.

We have only one life, and there is no do-over. I began to see that quitting my office job to finally live my life was not the riskiest decision — staying in my taxing job and not giving my life a chance was. So I packed my bags and bought a one-way ticket to Spain.

I traveled — and started a business

I visited over 50 countries and six continents, soaking up the sun in Bali, sipping wine in Santorini, climbing to the base camp of Mount Everest, and scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef. Travel became my new life.

Quit my job

Every time I visited a new country, I was blown away by the talented people I met — amazing people with so much untapped potential and so few opportunities. I couldn’t stand it.

I could clearly see how many of the people I met could drive innovation for top companies worldwide, if only given a chance. 

Drawing on my own remote-work experience, I quickly realized that I didn't have to give up my dream of travel and helping people around the world to accomplish my career goals.

All of a sudden, my vision was clear: Everybody deserves a chance to live up to their potential, and the flexibility of remote work can help them do it.

Quit my job.

So I created my first Facebook group for remote and travel jobs, and began working with progressive and forward-thinking employers worldwide who shared remote work opportunities daily.

Initially, there were only 100 members, but when the community reached 3,500 people, I knew this was bigger than me. These were extremely talented people from all over the world. I believed in them, and they counted on me.

So I did everything I could to help. I reached out to every employer I could to bring more remote job opportunities and I went to every meetup out there to learn more about how to create a successful business.

Eventually, I met entrepreneur Gregg Pollack, who recommended that I apply to Starter Studio, an innovative hub he created for entrepreneurs.

Quit my job

I made a few slides showing how amazing our community is. After many subsequent steps, I was accepted to the program. For the next three months, I spent every waking hour learning from top entrepreneurs how to build a successful business.

At the end of the program, Pangian, our borderless digital nation, was born.

Today, Pangian is platform powered by machine learning and AI, matching top talent around the world with high-quality, long-term remote work. We just expanded to 121 countries with top global companies and over 39,000 members united by our goal of flexible work that has meaning and fulfills us.

And this is just the beginning.

          European NATO Jets Showcase Unified Russian Deterrence      Cache   Translate Page      
British, French and German fighter jets simulated flight interceptions over Western Europe on Wednesday as part of NATO drills to deter Russian planes from entering allied airspace and to showcase European efforts to integrate their air defenses.  Fighter pilots carrying air-to-air missiles from 10 NATO nations took turns to simulate the interception of a Belgian air force transport plane en route to Spain, performing visual inspections of the aircraft’s status by hovering off the wings at speeds of 900 km/hour (560 mph). Some 60 NATO jets, mainly from European allies, are on alert to defend alliance airspace, as NATO deals with a dramatic increase in Russian air activity on its borders since Moscow's annexation of Crimea in 2014, with a record 870 interceptions in the Baltics alone in 2016   This month, Moscow is holding its largest war games since the fall of the Soviet Union, with some 1,000 aircraft.  “NATO is relevant. This is not theoretical,” said Spanish Air Force Lieutenant General Ruben Garcia Servert on board the Belgian military transport plane, as Italian Eurofighters flew close to the cockpit to simulate interceptions. They later included British Typhoons and French Mirages.  “We have not always been successful in showing the taxpayer that we have the means and the capabilities to protect the population,” he told Reuters during a rare mid-air public display of flight interceptions.  European allies hope such displays highlight how their air forces are defending Europe in the face of sharp criticism from U.S. President Donald Trump, who at a summit in July railed against Europeans for not spending enough on defense and ports.  Able to divert, force to land or potentially even shoot down combat aircraft, NATO says its so-called air policing is not directed at Russia. But showdowns between rival warplanes in the Baltic and Black Sea are intensifying. Two U.S. jets escorted two Russian bombers over the Arctic Ocean on Sept. 7 in the latest incident, while Russia has scrambled fighter jets to intercept nuclear-capable U.S. bombers in interceptions that have echoes of the Cold War. Analysts warn that any collisions in the air over the Mediterranean, Baltic or Black Sea could risk the start of a wider conflict with Russia. ‘Single sky’ defenses  Both sides accuse the other of dangerous pilot behaviour, but NATO says Russian warplanes regularly fly without respecting international safety norms, such as responding to air traffic control and requests to identify themselves. Russia says all its flights are conducted in accordance with international law. “We have seen aircraft coming to our borders without flight plans, without any kind of controls ... safety regulations, entering into our area,” Garcia Severt said. “We have seen frequent activities in the Black Sea, but not only, sometimes we have seen aircraft flying around Europe,” he said, referring to Russian bombers off Portugal’s coast. NATO will hold its biggest exercise since 2002 in October and November in Norway, called Trident Juncture, and involving non-NATO Finland and Sweden, with more than 40,000 troops. While tensions with Russia have already prompted NATO to deploy multinational land battalions in Poland and the Baltics, NATO is also pushing to integrate its air forces, despite political resistance over issues of sovereignty. Under an agreement being negotiated, individual NATO countries’ air forces would defend each other's airspaces, regardless of the country they are in, under a “single sky” concept that could see Portuguese planes defending Spanish airspace, for example. Today, each nation defends its own airspace, unless, as in the case of the Baltics, it does not have fighter planes.

          This is the Terrifying Reality of America's 'Deadly, Dangerous and Destabilizing Role' in Global Arms Supply      Cache   Translate Page      
Want to be part of peace? Stop working for, and investing in, these Big 5 arms manufacturers.

Most Americans want peace—in the world, in their country, and in their own homes and communities.

Even the most committed Trump supporter might want peace in Latin America and the Middle East—if it means “illegal” refugees stop “pouring” in to the USA.

Yet, somehow, U.S. “commandos” were deployed to 149 countries in 2017 alone.

Worse, according to a 2016 International Criminal Court report, U.S. troops allegedly committed war crimes in Afghanistan, and the U.S. military and CIA allegedly tortured at least 88 people in Poland, Romania, and other countries as well.

So why is it then that so many Americans work for private, for-profit companies profiting from war? And why are so many Americans invested financially in the merchants of death profiting from war and manufactured terror around the globe?

Perhaps it’s out of simple ignorance of a) not knowing where their money is invested and b) not knowing the U.S. companies that are manufacturing the weapons of death used by the U.S. and their frenemies around the world.

Enter CodePink’s new report, War Profiteers: The U.S. War Machine and the Arming of Repressive Regimes, a handy guide to the companies that manufacture weapons, and who they are selling them to. The report is primarily focused on Boeing, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and Raytheon—the largest military manufacturers in the U.S., and their deals with Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Egypt.

“The United States is the leading purveyor of arms sales, global war and militarism,” the report notes. “With 800 military bases in 80 countries around the world, the U.S. has a larger military budget than the next seven countries combined, as well as an arms industry that dominates the global arms trade.”

The report delves into each of the Big Five arms manufacturers and their role and involvement in the murders of civilians and children around the world. It seems what are heralded as symbols of freedom in the U.S. are viewed as symbols of absolute destruction and death to the children who bear witness to the violence inflicted upon their communities by, for example, Apache helicopters or Eagle fighters (Boeing-made combat aircraft supplied to Israel).

Of course, it doesn’t help when U.S. leaders make threats and brag about their military or economic power and their access to “the button.” For example, the ICC’s recent accusations inspired national security adviser John Bolton to threaten the ICC as “illegitimate” and that the U.S. “will respond against the ICC and its personnel.”

Current U.S. leadership actions weren’t without foreshadowing by America’s military leaders of ages past. “Those who measure security solely in terms of offensive capacity distort its meaning and mislead those who pay them heed,” President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared decades ago. “No modern nation has ever equaled the crushing offensive power attained by the German war machine in 1939,” he continued. “No modern nation was broken and smashed as was Germany six years later.”

It’s not just the arrogant language leaders use, but also the corruption of language. The report notes that, “Officially sanctioned terms like ‘defense’ and ‘security’ act as a subterfuge to diminish and camouflage the deadly, dangerous and destabilizing role that the United States is playing in the world.”

The cost of that coopting and corruption of language and perversion of justice and humanity resonates deeply throughout the world, on an emotional, economic, and even spiritual level. Even Eisenhower, the report also notes, said, “The total influence—economic, political, even spiritual—is felt in every city, every State House, every office of the Federal government. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources, and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.”

So why is it, then, that so many Americans continue to work for the companies profiting from heinous wars? It probably isn’t Raytheon’s corny “Forget Silicon Valley: Working for a defense contractor is surprisingly cool” campaign that is attracting people to military subcontractors.

The numbers of people working in this sector—nearly half a million officially in the Big Five mentioned in the report—is troublesome considering the number of EPA employees who have left under the Trump administration: an “exodus” of over 1,600 employees who are refusing to be a part of the problem rather than the solution.

As Eisenhower said, “Disarmament, with mutual honor and confidence, is a continuing imperative. Together we must learn how to compose differences, not with arms, but with intellect and decent purpose.” That can start by moving your money—and your employment—to a different sector. But first, arm yourself with knowledge.

          The Real Contagion Threat Is Political      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Tom Luongo,

The real danger to the current institutional order was just demonstrated in Sweden. While I’ve talked at length about the potential financial contagion stemming from the implosion of multiple emerging market currencies it is the growing political crisis in Europe that will shape our future.

Sweden is The Land where Socialism Works, or so I keep getting told by ignorant leftists who cling to the power fantasy that central planning is the only way to make the trains run on time.

Central planning does do that, but only to deliver people into the nightmare of social disorder brought on by the disruption of the natural flow of capital.

Venezuela, South Africa, Soviet Union, post WWII Britain ... you get the idea.

But, the effects of the collectivist mindset are far more pernicious than those extreme examples.  And it is important we understand how little policies grow into big problems over time due to shaping people’s decisions through government edicts.

Corps Insanity

There is no better example for what I’m talking about than the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  A completely useless organization which sucks up billions in tax money to straighten rivers, build dams and alter the landscape to fit the needs of whoever paid Congress the most in lobbying money that year.

They engage in projects that cannot easily be done in the free market, nor should be done. But their activity creates downstream effects from their meddling which multiply over years and lead to problems which are orders of magnitude larger than they would have ever become naturally.

The Red Tides occurring off the Florida coast now are a political cudgel being swung at Governor Rick Scott to prevent him from moving up to U.S. Senator over his ‘environmental record.’  Now I’m no fan of Skeletor, as we call him down here, but these charges are simply grandstanding.

Because anyone who has an ounce of decency, intellectual honesty or passing acquaintance with history knows that the seeds of South Florida’s environmental nightmares are a product of the Corps of Engineers altering the landscape to serve Big Sugar and Big Corn.

These are two crops we shouldn’t even be growing (along with Soy and rapeseed) no less subsidizing due to their horrific effects on human health and development.  And this is another downstream effect of government meddling.

The real epidemic in the U.S. sapping our national wealth is not the rise of opioid use (though terrible) or the trade deficit it is diabetes and auto-immune diseases brought on by two generations of bad diet and ruinous food.

Health care and Big Pharma cost us trillions in easily avoided health problems due to the erroneous idea that human dietary needs are well-served by eating like my goats.

They aren’t.  Hell, even my goats spend most of their lives in ketosis.

This, again, is a product of government meddling into our food choices by diverting capital via farm subsidies and other bureaucratic structures built through the collective action of the ballot box.

So, a $200 million river straightening project turns into a multi-generational multi-trillion dollar loss of productive capital trying to keep people alive a little longer after a lifetime of eating like pigs being fattened for slaughter.

Okay, maybe that was the plan overall.

Rising Tides, Falling Boats

But, back to Sweden.  The results from the Swedish elections are another data point that populism is, well, popular.  The surge in popularity of the Sweden Democrats was strong enough to throw into flux the formation of a new government as support for the ruling Social Democrats has collapsed.

Where have we heard this story before?  Oh, only like all over freaking Europe.

What started with Brexit, carried across the pond to Trump, and spread to the continent in Italy, France, Poland, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Russia, the Czech Republic and Germany which has now crossed back over the Baltic Sea to Sweden.

And still the political Left refuses to acknowledge the legitimacy of the concerns of voters, clinging desperately to the narrative that this is simply fringe ‘alt-right’ or ‘far-right Nazism’ rearing its head in an adolescent ab reaction to their very sensible and humanitarian policies.

They are supported in this delusion by the architects of the immigration nightmare in Europe who are quick to label anything vaguely sniffing of cultural pride as ‘extremism’ to shame apolitical and conscientious folks into staying within this failing paradigm of cultural suicide.

It is not working and thank the gods for it.

Whether the Sweden Democrats’ share of the vote is large enough for them to enter the government is irrelevant in the end.  Sweden’s political system is backward, but, hey, who am I to judge.

No one, actually, and that is the point.

The surge in popularity is what matters. And if they are excluded and things in Sweden continue as they are, then it will only serve up an even bigger voter backlash the next time they go to the polls if the government can even survive that long.

What’s is relevant is the contagion brought on by the downstream effects of one government intervention begetting a complete overhaul of the political landscape.

Europe is balkanizing.

Potential Post-EU map of Europe: Source @scottskingharry

Cultural Suicide Postponed

National cultures and community pride are sources of societal strength. The proponents of the Open Society and cultural homogenization are tone-deaf to the realities of forcing change because it is ‘the right thing to do’ or ‘the right thing to advocate.’

All it does is betray their totalitarian urge to force people they look down on to be better by first demonizing them for being racist and then acting out their own racism by forcing on their political opponents a life they do not want.

And the minute these long-suffering, abused people stand up for themselves and say, “No more” to their once peaceful communities being torn asunder by acid-throwing, gang-raping, rudderless immigrant males their reaction is to cry, “Racist!”

But that’s not working anymore.  What is working is the two-edged sword of political power.  Those that live by it will eventually hang from the rafters by it unless they willingly step aside and admit defeat with a modicum of grace and humility.

Given the reactions from the politically powerful all across Europe and the U.S. to this critical shift in the political landscape that is the last thing on their minds.

And that’s the most tragic irony of this entire period of history.  The very people who champion communitarianism and democracy as their highest ideal fear the power they have used so indiscriminately will be used against them when they lose it.

And their losses are mounting.

That’s what is inflaming their hatred and violence.  Abject terror of the backlash.  It is why this political contagion is the catalyst for global financial and economic collapse.  It’s already here in the form of emerging market upheaval. Faith in the institutions which circumscribe our lives is what props up currencies and, ultimately, asset values.

Politics got us into this mess.  It will not get us out of it.  The Great Reset is coming.  And you need to be prepared.

          Session: Reds! The Russian Civil War 1918-1921:: Reds! Solo Session Report      Cache   Translate Page      

by srd5090

I have a few games covering the Russian Civil War. This one, SPI/S&T Russian Civil War, and soon I will have Triumph of Chaos 2nd Edition. Up until now I haven't played any of them and the conflict has alluded me in my readings on history. I hope to rectify that soon with a few choice books picked out.

This session report (spread across multiple postings within one thread) is a chronicle of my first solo play of the game. I have tried to read through the rules a good bit but I suspect I will still miss something important or make bad moves due to inexperience with this particular game.

For the uninitiated, the Russian Civil War was the conflict that saw the rise of the Soviet Union in the post-WWI chaos in Russia. This game has two 'sides': the Reds, comprising of the forces of Lenin, Trotsky, etc. and the Whites, pro-Monarchy or anti-Bolshevik forces including support from the Allies of WWI and even the potential Poland.

In this game the Whites are represented by factions that are activated one at a time in different theaters of the conflict. They can stack more efficiently (which impacts battles in weird ways, more on that later). They also activate with a certain amount of certainty. Their weakness is their dependence on Allied Intervention Forces, bad replacement rates, and a general numeric inferiority over the course of the game. The Reds by comparison have great replacements rates but start off a bit dysfunctional. Activations are by front, and in the early game some fronts will simply not be activated. Their stacking isn't quite as good either. They have numbers via replacements and can't be a bit more reckless, though perhaps not strength of quality. Quantity is a quality all its own, etc. Additionally, the Reds benefit from a centralized rail network around Moscow and relatively safe internal lines at game start.

Here is the game at set-up:



Right away I will say the game could have done a better job providing set-up directions via some play aid but I managed with the assistance of the VASSAL module.

The general situation is that there are no forces west of the Occupation Line (WWI is technically still going on until Strategic Turn B). The Reds command the center of the map from Moscow with force sporadically spread out amongst a large number of Red controlled cities. The Whites start off with a few forces near the Urals and the Caucuses/East-Ukraine. The Whites will get a bunch of reinforcements and possibilities at Strategic Turn B, but for now must make do.

I will point out that since this game seems weighted against the Whites I will be using the optional rules 21.1, 21.2, and 21.3. These provide stronger rallied units for the Whites at game-start, allows the Whites the first two activations, and no replacements on Strategic Turn A which mostly benefits the Reds I think. I will NOT use 21.4, at least for the time being. The Reds have enough advantages but if things are going crazy I'll consider popping it in. There are some interesting Optional house Rules here on BGG but I'm sticking with this for now as I get my feet wet.

So how does one win this game?

The Whites:

The Whites can win an automatic victory (checked during a strategic turn not normal turns) by depriving the Reds of important hexes. The rulebook is a bit funky in terms of wording so to clarify (my interpretation anyway) the game states would need to be thus:

1. The Reds control Moscow but only one other resource city.
2. The Reds lose control of Moscow.

The first game-state is unlikely to happen. I don't see a game happening where the Reds are rolled back so bad they only have Moscow and one other resource. Maybe in a rare case, but the Whites can really entertain this fantasy. The latter game-state, however, is a bit more reasonable. If the Whites are able to carefully manage their forces, a decisive strike at the heart of the revolution could disrupt the network of the revolutionaries, destroy their leadership, etc. This would be a very historical outcome. That said, there would undoubtedly be many Red soldiers between any competent White army and Moscow.

Alternatively the Whites can also win by keeping the Reds from reaching their victory condition in the campaign game. This means holding on, tooth and nail, to resource cities, Poland, etc. This victory would reflect the Reds still dominating Russia but that the Whites performed better then history, or as good as history. Less flashy of a win, but a win for a player nonetheless.

In terms of strategy it is unclear how to best marshal the White forces. Gambling too much too early for an automatic win could leave the Whites drained and make certain the Reds reach victory before the campaign ends. The Whites Player half of my brain will likely just have to play it by ear and look for opportunities as they come up.


The Reds:

Playing the full campaign the Reds are on a time limit. They can only win by attaining one of their automatic victory conditions. The conditions are variations of "control all the important stuff":

1. Control every city on the map outside Poland and the Baltic Republics - AKA The Motherland Route
2. Control every resource city on the map and has conquered Poland - AKA Eastern Europe is Good Enough Route.

While these need to be attained by the end of the game, that is a decent amount of time to work with. It would seem a diligent, patient expansion would be key here. Shut down White factions individually, slowly taking control of the various regions. The status of Poland and whether it needs conquering is something that can be determined mid-game. Having not played before I am unsure of which of these options is the easiest. Will need to see.

Additional Strategy Thoughts

The Whites:

I've been writing this slowly, some days between writing these sections. This has allowed me to ponder strategy for quite awhile. One of the things that really sticks out as a statement on the balance of this game is that there are distinct threads on White strategy here on BGG but less so for the Reds. I think this is because the Reds strategy is more straight forward and obvious, common sense. It is the Whites that require really careful thoughts and planning. Since such thought has been put into those threads I will make use of them myself to see how effective they are. Maybe not 100% to the letter but we'll see how it goes. The threads I am looking at are 'Whites! in Reds!' and 'White Game Scale Strategy'. One thing that would be nice to have occur is to retain the Allies as long as possible while also getting Poland involved. They come in more easily after Allied Withdrawal but it is possible to get them in earlier.

The Reds:

Nothing fancy here. Again, it seems obvious to slowly expand, take out factions individually if possible. Wear out the Whites since they have lower replacement ability. I don't think there is much of a trick here. Maybe make sure not to ignore Poland or invite their invasion due to no units near the border. The game will get progressively easier for the Reds as the game goes on I think, once more leaders enter from events.

I'll also mention that I'm using an appropriately colored 'party cup' as my randomizer for ACT chits.



---------------------------

Operational Turn 1

Not technically part of Turn 1 but part of set-up, we roll for the Tsar being alive or dead. It is a 1 in 6 chance he survives. The advantage of him being alive is a bonus to rallying White units. Unfortunately for the Whites the die roll leaves him dead as was in history. Such a low chance of him surviving I wonder why we bother?

Initiative: Whites have initiative on Turn 1 by default.

Random Events: Here we roll 2 dice, first for the non-initiative player (the Reds) then the initiative player, yielding a random event. For the Reds they receive an armored train, not a bad pull. It is placed in Piatigorsk with a Red Infantry unit, to better protect against the large force of fully rallied White units there. The optional rules made those white units full strength rather than flipped by default. The Whites get a choice of an amphibious chit or a cavalry raid chit. Neither seem particularly useful at the moment, honestly. Whites choose the cavalry raid chit and hold on to it for now. Maybe an opportunity will present itself later.

Makhno Allegiance Phase: We skip this until Turn B. Governs if the Makhno unit is 'red' or 'white' for the turn. This reflects the fact the historical Makhno forces were hostile to both the Reds and Whites.

Strategic Movement Phase: Skipped on Turn 1.

Action Phase: This is the meat of operational turns. We will pull activation chits until we are empty. The first step here is determining what chits are available to go into our cup. I should point out that the White player, as the initiative player, gets to pick one chit to be used for the first activation. But since we are using the optional rules, they seem to indicate the White player gets to pick the first two chits on Turn 1. The obvious choices are the AFSR chit and the Siberian chit. The only con here being that it will leave a lot of other markers for the Reds to use in sequence, but it may not really matter. So those two chits are left out of the cup. This means the North & Islamic chit and the AIF chit will go into the cup. For the Reds, they automatically get the Field Staff chit, plus any fronts that have leaders (right now none), then two chits for fronts with no leaders. Since the Field Staff chit activates any front not already activated, it makes sense to use it to activate a front we don't put a chit in for to maximize areas activated. Otherwise we would use it to increase the likelihood of activating a particular front earlier in a turn. If we use it for a front we put a chit in for, when that chit comes up it is discarded. Since we know the Whites will use the Siberians to try and grab the Gold resource, the East Front chit is put in. Expecting action against the AFSR, the South Front chit is also added. What front the Field Staff chit is used for will depend on the circumstances. Finally, the logistics chit is also added. If this is pulled we will check for supply and rallying mostly. A well timed pull of this chit can leave units out of supply and losing a step.

So, now it is finally time to get down to business. The cup and both shaken AND stirred, and set aside as the Whites activate the Siberians. I use the strategy for taking the Gold in the strategy threads here on BGG. 2nd Czech, Komuch, and Kappel go for the Gold in Kazan. Only other movement is a Cossack unit goes to Samara. No idea if it was worth it but it needs something to defend it so whatever.

On to Kazan, combat in this game is weird. The game puts emphasis on the number of units attacking and defending which isn't so strange, but it also relies on manpower differentials. It is some representation of bodies involved and logistical/operational capability. First we commit air or naval units, of which there are none right now. Then we get the combat adds via comparing total manpower. It is 4 White to 1 Red, which shifts one column left for the defending Red City, to 3 to 1. Then we calculate modifiers. A red garrison here defending by itself seems to have a -2 modifier (not good). The Whites have a +6 from all the units attacking. THEN we roll dice, BUT the die roll is multiplied by the number of units you are using, which is then modified by those bonuses/penalties. Stick with me here. The Whites roll a 3, multiplied by 3, is 9. Plus 6 is 15. The Reds roll a 6, multiplied by 1, is 6. Minus 2 is 4. Okay NOW, we subtract the defenders final value here from the attackers final value. We get a combat differential of 11. We cross reference 11 with our 3:1 odds. The result is a 'DR'. This means all defending units are disordered and all units retreat. Garrisons can't retreat and would be eliminated, but garrisons are only one-step units anyway so the disorder gets rid of them regardless. The Whites win! I will not go into this level of detail for every fight. But worth showing the process. It is quite involved. At least compared to games where it is a few die roll modifiers and a simple die roll. The Czech unit and Komuch advance into Kazan and take control of the Gold.

Now for the AFSR. The Armored Train nearby is only effective on attacks so it makes sense to try to knock out the units in Piatigorsk. We also need to try to free up the Cossack unit in Petrovsk. I'm not willing to try for Tsaritsyn just yet. I move the 3 division units out in such a way to make retreats difficult for the Red unit. No other units are moved. Looking now I realize the Red units near the Trans-Caucasus all start out of supply. If we can hurt the unit in this attack then we could see it disappear due to a logistics chit pull if we only disorder it. The manpower comparison isn't good though, 3 to 5 which reduces to 1 to 2, which is shifted for the city to 1 to 3. The end result is a adR. One White unit is disordered. The Red infantry is disordered and retreats towards Petrovsk. The armored train unit needs to retreat but can only be on rail hexes and the only available rail-hex is blocked by a White ZOC. So it goes poof. One full strength White unit advances into the city taking control of it.

Something I haven't touched on much is the need to be grabbing resource hexes to delay Allied Withdrawal. I need to have 3 or more by Strategy Turn C. Then 4 on D, and so on. To meet this I need to be steadily making gains as the Whites, something unlikely to keep occurring. The Gold is one, then we have Simbirsk and Izhevsk. I believe there are 12 total, but a fair number in Ukraine. When that area opens up (West of the Occupation Line) on Turn B, it will be a mad dash to grab and defend them.

Okay! Now the first random chit pull. It is the North and Islamic Force chit. Not much to be done with the one Islamic army. It is move towards Merv. Looking at the map I don't actually see any Northern Faction units for the Whites right now. The brown shaded unit are AIF. I believe we will get North army force at Turn B. Next chit! The Reds get their Field Staff chit. Unfortunate to get it now. The reality is I don't see what the Reds can do anywhere else right now but the South and East. In the South, if the logistics chit is pull we could see an army lost or disordered. If we act now we can try to pull them out. So the Reds activate the South Front, knowing the South chit will be useless. The units in peril move 3 hexes, just enough to get them adjacent to a rail-hex leading back to interior Red lines. Enough to be in supply now. Some other units in the area are moved up, Tsaritsyn remains garrisoned with a unit. The next chit is the AIF chit. Since the AIF can't attack with the event, they can merely move into better positions. So some slight movements are made, nothing major. I'd like to aggregate my AIF forces in the North. The South chit is drawn in discarded.

The logistics chit is drawn next. Logistics chits cause the White player to check supply, take disorders hits as needed, then in supply disordered units may attempt to rally and recover a step. Once done the Red player does the same. All White units appear to be in supply. The rallying is pretty abysmal. Only two AIF units manage to rally, both of them in the North. All red units appear to be in supply. Amazingly enough the only Red unit to rally is the one that was disordered in combat in the South.

The final chit is the Red East marker. The guidance for the Whites regarding taking Kazan and leaving Kappel South fo the city seems to be very effective. Hard to find the right attack vector. The 2nd and 5th Red Armies attack Kazan while the First attacks Kappel. I think I will do the Kappel fight first so if there is an advancement ZOCs might lock down the area. Both sides roll snake eyes, leading to a DR result. Kappel takes a hit and moves back two hexes, remaining in supply. The attack on Kazan fail, with a result of 'ad'. Disorders occur but it looks like the Whites will hold the Gold for the strategic movement next operational turn.

Well that is the end of turn 1.

Strategic Turn A
No victory check necessary really. No allied Withdrawal either. Whites get the AFSR army unit, which I put in Ekaterinodar. The Reds get 4 disordered units. I place them near Ukraine, except one that goes into Astrakhan. I have no idea if this is a good move or not, I just know grabbing Ukrainian territory will be useful. There are no replacements on this turn due to the optional rules, but it is redundant as no units have been eliminated anyhow.

"The name of Mary brings grace, hope, and sweetness to the hearts of men. First fostered in Spain, then invoked against the Turks at Vienna in 1683, this devotion to Mary inspired King John Sobieski of Poland to put the infidels to flight, and thus to save Christendom from devastation. Pope Innocent XI extended observance of the feast (on 12 September) to the whole Church." This altar piece with the Holy Name of Mary carved in wood, is from the chapel of the Mercy Convent in Buffalo, NY.

          This is the Terrifying Reality of America's 'Deadly, Dangerous and Destabilizing Role' in Global Arms Supply      Cache   Translate Page      
Want to be part of peace? Stop working for, and investing in, these Big 5 arms manufacturers.

Most Americans want peace—in the world, in their country, and in their own homes and communities.

Even the most committed Trump supporter might want peace in Latin America and the Middle East—if it means “illegal” refugees stop “pouring” in to the USA.

Yet, somehow, U.S. “commandos” were deployed to 149 countries in 2017 alone.

Worse, according to a 2016 International Criminal Court report, U.S. troops allegedly committed war crimes in Afghanistan, and the U.S. military and CIA allegedly tortured at least 88 people in Poland, Romania, and other countries as well.

So why is it then that so many Americans work for private, for-profit companies profiting from war? And why are so many Americans invested financially in the merchants of death profiting from war and manufactured terror around the globe?

Perhaps it’s out of simple ignorance of a) not knowing where their money is invested and b) not knowing the U.S. companies that are manufacturing the weapons of death used by the U.S. and their frenemies around the world.

Enter CodePink’s new report, War Profiteers: The U.S. War Machine and the Arming of Repressive Regimes, a handy guide to the companies that manufacture weapons, and who they are selling them to. The report is primarily focused on Boeing, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and Raytheon—the largest military manufacturers in the U.S., and their deals with Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Egypt.

“The United States is the leading purveyor of arms sales, global war and militarism,” the report notes. “With 800 military bases in 80 countries around the world, the U.S. has a larger military budget than the next seven countries combined, as well as an arms industry that dominates the global arms trade.”

The report delves into each of the Big Five arms manufacturers and their role and involvement in the murders of civilians and children around the world. It seems what are heralded as symbols of freedom in the U.S. are viewed as symbols of absolute destruction and death to the children who bear witness to the violence inflicted upon their communities by, for example, Apache helicopters or Eagle fighters (Boeing-made combat aircraft supplied to Israel).

Of course, it doesn’t help when U.S. leaders make threats and brag about their military or economic power and their access to “the button.” For example, the ICC’s recent accusations inspired national security adviser John Bolton to threaten the ICC as “illegitimate” and that the U.S. “will respond against the ICC and its personnel.”

Current U.S. leadership actions weren’t without foreshadowing by America’s military leaders of ages past. “Those who measure security solely in terms of offensive capacity distort its meaning and mislead those who pay them heed,” President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared decades ago. “No modern nation has ever equaled the crushing offensive power attained by the German war machine in 1939,” he continued. “No modern nation was broken and smashed as was Germany six years later.”

It’s not just the arrogant language leaders use, but also the corruption of language. The report notes that, “Officially sanctioned terms like ‘defense’ and ‘security’ act as a subterfuge to diminish and camouflage the deadly, dangerous and destabilizing role that the United States is playing in the world.”

The cost of that coopting and corruption of language and perversion of justice and humanity resonates deeply throughout the world, on an emotional, economic, and even spiritual level. Even Eisenhower, the report also notes, said, “The total influence—economic, political, even spiritual—is felt in every city, every State House, every office of the Federal government. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources, and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.”

So why is it, then, that so many Americans continue to work for the companies profiting from heinous wars? It probably isn’t Raytheon’s corny “Forget Silicon Valley: Working for a defense contractor is surprisingly cool” campaign that is attracting people to military subcontractors.

The numbers of people working in this sector—nearly half a million officially in the Big Five mentioned in the report—is troublesome considering the number of EPA employees who have left under the Trump administration: an “exodus” of over 1,600 employees who are refusing to be a part of the problem rather than the solution.

As Eisenhower said, “Disarmament, with mutual honor and confidence, is a continuing imperative. Together we must learn how to compose differences, not with arms, but with intellect and decent purpose.” That can start by moving your money—and your employment—to a different sector. But first, arm yourself with knowledge.

          The Real Contagion Threat Is Political      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Tom Luongo,

The real danger to the current institutional order was just demonstrated in Sweden. While I’ve talked at length about the potential financial contagion stemming from the implosion of multiple emerging market currencies it is the growing political crisis in Europe that will shape our future.

Sweden is The Land where Socialism Works, or so I keep getting told by ignorant leftists who cling to the power fantasy that central planning is the only way to make the trains run on time.

Central planning does do that, but only to deliver people into the nightmare of social disorder brought on by the disruption of the natural flow of capital.

Venezuela, South Africa, Soviet Union, post WWII Britain ... you get the idea.

But, the effects of the collectivist mindset are far more pernicious than those extreme examples.  And it is important we understand how little policies grow into big problems over time due to shaping people’s decisions through government edicts.

Corps Insanity

There is no better example for what I’m talking about than the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  A completely useless organization which sucks up billions in tax money to straighten rivers, build dams and alter the landscape to fit the needs of whoever paid Congress the most in lobbying money that year.

They engage in projects that cannot easily be done in the free market, nor should be done. But their activity creates downstream effects from their meddling which multiply over years and lead to problems which are orders of magnitude larger than they would have ever become naturally.

The Red Tides occurring off the Florida coast now are a political cudgel being swung at Governor Rick Scott to prevent him from moving up to U.S. Senator over his ‘environmental record.’  Now I’m no fan of Skeletor, as we call him down here, but these charges are simply grandstanding.

Because anyone who has an ounce of decency, intellectual honesty or passing acquaintance with history knows that the seeds of South Florida’s environmental nightmares are a product of the Corps of Engineers altering the landscape to serve Big Sugar and Big Corn.

These are two crops we shouldn’t even be growing (along with Soy and rapeseed) no less subsidizing due to their horrific effects on human health and development.  And this is another downstream effect of government meddling.

The real epidemic in the U.S. sapping our national wealth is not the rise of opioid use (though terrible) or the trade deficit it is diabetes and auto-immune diseases brought on by two generations of bad diet and ruinous food.

Health care and Big Pharma cost us trillions in easily avoided health problems due to the erroneous idea that human dietary needs are well-served by eating like my goats.

They aren’t.  Hell, even my goats spend most of their lives in ketosis.

This, again, is a product of government meddling into our food choices by diverting capital via farm subsidies and other bureaucratic structures built through the collective action of the ballot box.

So, a $200 million river straightening project turns into a multi-generational multi-trillion dollar loss of productive capital trying to keep people alive a little longer after a lifetime of eating like pigs being fattened for slaughter.

Okay, maybe that was the plan overall.

Rising Tides, Falling Boats

But, back to Sweden.  The results from the Swedish elections are another data point that populism is, well, popular.  The surge in popularity of the Sweden Democrats was strong enough to throw into flux the formation of a new government as support for the ruling Social Democrats has collapsed.

Where have we heard this story before?  Oh, only like all over freaking Europe.

What started with Brexit, carried across the pond to Trump, and spread to the continent in Italy, France, Poland, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Russia, the Czech Republic and Germany which has now crossed back over the Baltic Sea to Sweden.

And still the political Left refuses to acknowledge the legitimacy of the concerns of voters, clinging desperately to the narrative that this is simply fringe ‘alt-right’ or ‘far-right Nazism’ rearing its head in an adolescent ab reaction to their very sensible and humanitarian policies.

They are supported in this delusion by the architects of the immigration nightmare in Europe who are quick to label anything vaguely sniffing of cultural pride as ‘extremism’ to shame apolitical and conscientious folks into staying within this failing paradigm of cultural suicide.

It is not working and thank the gods for it.

Whether the Sweden Democrats’ share of the vote is large enough for them to enter the government is irrelevant in the end.  Sweden’s political system is backward, but, hey, who am I to judge.

No one, actually, and that is the point.

The surge in popularity is what matters. And if they are excluded and things in Sweden continue as they are, then it will only serve up an even bigger voter backlash the next time they go to the polls if the government can even survive that long.

What’s is relevant is the contagion brought on by the downstream effects of one government intervention begetting a complete overhaul of the political landscape.

Europe is balkanizing.

Potential Post-EU map of Europe: Source @scottskingharry

Cultural Suicide Postponed

National cultures and community pride are sources of societal strength. The proponents of the Open Society and cultural homogenization are tone-deaf to the realities of forcing change because it is ‘the right thing to do’ or ‘the right thing to advocate.’

All it does is betray their totalitarian urge to force people they look down on to be better by first demonizing them for being racist and then acting out their own racism by forcing on their political opponents a life they do not want.

And the minute these long-suffering, abused people stand up for themselves and say, “No more” to their once peaceful communities being torn asunder by acid-throwing, gang-raping, rudderless immigrant males their reaction is to cry, “Racist!”

But that’s not working anymore.  What is working is the two-edged sword of political power.  Those that live by it will eventually hang from the rafters by it unless they willingly step aside and admit defeat with a modicum of grace and humility.

Given the reactions from the politically powerful all across Europe and the U.S. to this critical shift in the political landscape that is the last thing on their minds.

And that’s the most tragic irony of this entire period of history.  The very people who champion communitarianism and democracy as their highest ideal fear the power they have used so indiscriminately will be used against them when they lose it.

And their losses are mounting.

That’s what is inflaming their hatred and violence.  Abject terror of the backlash.  It is why this political contagion is the catalyst for global financial and economic collapse.  It’s already here in the form of emerging market upheaval. Faith in the institutions which circumscribe our lives is what props up currencies and, ultimately, asset values.

Politics got us into this mess.  It will not get us out of it.  The Great Reset is coming.  And you need to be prepared.

One of the difficulties in resisting the Trump administration, the Republican Congressional majority, and Republican state legislatures (plus the occasional non-Republican who obliges us to resist their nonsense, too, like we don't have enough to worry about) is keeping on top of the sheer number of horrors, indignities, and normalization of the aggressively abnormal that they unleash every single day.

So here is a daily thread for all of us to share all the things that are going on, thus crowdsourcing a daily compendium of the onslaught of conservative erosion of our rights and our very democracy.

Earlier today by me: Trump Regime Redirects FEMA Funding to ICE and Trump Regime Will Triple Size of Child Detention Camp and Hurricane Florence, Part 2.

Here are some more things in the news today...

Andy Towle at Towleroad: Trump Attacks 'Incompetent' San Juan Mayor, Again Praises Himself for Hurricane Relief in Puerto Rico, Where 2,975 Died. "Donald Trump praised himself again for the 'unappreciated great job' he did on hurricane relief in Puerto Rico, where 2,975 people died, and also attacked the mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulin Cruz, who has said that many of the deaths were the result of Trump's 'inability to get the job done.' Tweeted Trump: 'We got A Pluses for our recent hurricane work in Texas and Florida (and did an unappreciated great job in Puerto Rico, even though an inaccessible island with very poor electricity and a totally incompetent Mayor of San Juan). We are ready for the big one that is coming!'"

Thus does Trump continue his reprehensible habit of very visibly attacking, in particular, women of color who criticize him.

[Content Note: Extreme weather; displacement; death. Covers whole section.]

Kyla Mandel at ThinkProgress: Government Shutdown Looms as Trump Claims We Are 'Totally Prepared' for Hurricane Florence. "Only one day after the official death toll was published last month, Trump said that the government had done a 'fantastic job' with recovery in Puerto Rico. ...And yet many news reports and studies have shown the government was anything but prepared to deal with Hurricane Maria last year. ...And all of these risks rise to the forefront as a government shutdown looms — a shutdown the president has said he'll follow through on if Congress doesn't provide more money for his proposed border wall."

This is a really great point. Trump is saying we're totally prepared out one side of his mouth while threatening out the other to shut down the government. Ain't no federal aid getting to hurricane survivors if the federal government is shut down.

Ashley Parker at the Washington Post: 'Tremendously Big': Trump Reaches for Superlatives in the Face of Calamity.
Flanked in the Oval Office by charts showing the path of Hurricane Florence, [Donald] Trump on Tuesday issued a warning about the potentially catastrophic storm that at times felt strangely exuberant.

"Tremendously big and tremendously wet — tremendous amounts of water," Trump said, expressing something close to admiration at the expected precipitation.

Then the president turned to bragging about the federal response to past storms during his tenure, including Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico — though the estimate of nearly 3,000 excess deaths attributed to that storm ranks it among the deadliest in U.S. history.

"I think that Puerto Rico was an incredible, unsung success," he asserted.

Trump has long struggled with public displays of empathy and with rising to the role of consoler in chief. In a range of situations — from deadly shootings and natural disasters to Tuesday's anniversary of the 9/11 attacks — Trump has responded in ways that, at best, seem ill-suited to the somberness of the events.
This is something about which I've been writing for over two years, yet another character flaw that was glaringly apparent about Donald Trump even when he was a candidate, long before Election Day.

And it's important because it is part and parcel of what I wrote about yesterday: "There are many things that make Donald Trump unfit to be president. Chief among them is this: He does not care about other people. A man who does not care about other people, or what happens to them, isn't fit to lead them."

He can't express sincere concern because he doesn't feel it.

And I am very, very concerned about that as another hurricane barrels toward the U.S. coast. His apathy is deadly. We know that. We need look no further than Puerto Rico.

(Aside: "Tremendously Big and Tremendously Wet" — With everything else this grifter has stolen, you'd think he could have left me the title of my sex memoir.) (Sorry.) (Not sorry.)

Relatedly, Hillary Clinton published a terrific and terrifying thread on Twitter this morning, outlining the threat posed by Brett Kavanaugh if he is confirmed to the Supreme Court:
I want to be sure we're all clear about something that Brett Kavanaugh said in his confirmation hearings last week. He referred to birth-control pills as "abortion-inducing drugs." That set off a lot of alarm bells for me, and it should for you, too.

Kavanaugh didn't use that term because he misunderstands the basic science of birth control — the fact that birth control prevents fertilization of eggs in the first place. He used that term because it's a dog whistle to the extreme right.

When Kavanaugh called birth control "abortion-inducing drugs," he made it clear that safe and legal abortion isn't the only fundamental reproductive right at grave risk if he is confirmed. Access to birth control is, too.

Imagine an America in which women are barred from getting IUDs or birth control pills, and doctors are criminalized for prescribing them. It's an America in which women would be punished for insisting on being full and equal partners in society.

Sen. Kamala Harris asked Brett Kavanaugh last week: "Can you think of any laws that give the government the power to make decisions about the male body?" He said he was not. Because there are none.

Let's be clear: Women have just as much right as men to make the most personal health decisions without government interference. We are equal citizens and we will insist on nothing less in this country.

Please call your senators and relay the message: (202) 224-3121

MAKE YOUR CALLS.

[CN: Anti-semitism; fascism] Anne Applebaum at the Atlantic: A Warning from Europe: The Worst Is Yet to Come. "In a famous journal he kept from 1935 to 1944, the Romanian writer Mihail Sebastian chronicled an even more extreme shift in his own country. Like me, Sebastian was Jewish; like me, most of his friends were on the political right. In his journal, he described how, one by one, they were drawn to fascist ideology, like a flock of moths to an inescapable flame. He recounted the arrogance and confidence they acquired as they moved away from identifying themselves as Europeans — admirers of Proust, travelers to Paris — and instead began to call themselves blood-and-soil Romanians. ...This is not 1937. Nevertheless, a parallel transformation is taking place in my own time, in the Europe that I inhabit and in Poland, a country whose citizenship I have acquired. And it is taking place without the excuse of an economic crisis of the kind Europe suffered in the 1930s. ...Given the right conditions, any society can turn against democracy. Indeed, if history is anything to go by, all societies eventually will."

Applebaum is the best conservative writing on this subject today. Maybe tied with Jennifer Rubin. Out of a very small field that includes David Frum, who gets a disproportionate share of the plaudits. (It's certainly no coincidence that all three of them are Jewish.) Applebaum and I hardly agree on anything, and I've disagreements with her even in reading this piece, but we agree at least that our democracy is in grave danger, for reasons well beyond the tired narratives of "economic insecurity."

Eli Rosenberg at the Washington Post: Activists Raised $1 million to Defeat Susan Collins If She Votes for Kavanaugh; She Says It's Bribery. "[A] group of liberal activists in Maine created an unusual crowdfunding campaign that...raised money in the form of pledges that they said they would give to whoever decided to challenge Collins in 2020 if she voted for Kavanaugh's confirmation. If she votes no, the money will never be withdrawn from donors. ...'It seems kind of icky but it doesn't rise to the level of bribery because there's no agreement,' Jordan Libowitz, a spokesman for the Citizens for Ethics and Responsibilities. 'It's just the way money and politics tend to work these days.'"

Which is exactly how the Republicans wanted it, and now they're complaining that their own lax rules on campaign financing and fundraising are being used against them. I mean, trust that it wasn't progressives who angled for the ability to use enormous sums of money to influence candidates!

Fredreka Schouten at USA Today: Three-Quarters of the Secret Money in Recent Elections Came from 15 Groups. "Just 15 groups account for three-quarters of the anonymous cash flowing into federal elections since the Supreme Court paved the way for corporate and union money in candidate races eight years ago... Outside money in elections has exploded since the high court's blockbuster Citizens United ruling in 2010, allowing corporations and unions to spend in candidate elections. Groups that don't disclose their donors spent more than $800 million between January 1, 2010 and December 2016, with $600 million coming from 15 organizations, Issue One's analysis found." Welp!

Speaking of fundraising...

[CN: Nativism; abuse] Andrew Gumbel at the Guardian: 'They Were Laughing at Us': Immigrants Tell of Cruelty, Illness, and Filth in U.S. Detention. "'The conditions were horrible, everything was filthy, and there was no air circulating,' Kimberly Martinez told the Guardian of the five days the family spent cooped up in one facility they — like tens of thousands before them – referred to as 'la hielera': The icebox. Her husband added: 'It's as though they wanted to drain every positive feeling out of us.' They knew, from following the news, that their ordeal of escaping gang violence back home and trekking across desert terrain at the height of summer would not end when they reached the United States. What they did not expect, though, were days of hunger, separation, and verbal abuse that they said they endured at the hands of federal immigration officials."

Anthony Cormier and Jason Leopold at BuzzFeed: A Series of Suspicious Money Transfers Followed the Trump Tower Meeting. "The June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower has become one of the most famous gatherings in American political history — a flashpoint for allegations of collusion, the subject of shifting explanations by the president and his son, countless hair-on-fire tweets, and boundless speculation by the press. But secret documents reviewed by BuzzFeed News reveal a previously undisclosed aspect of the meeting: A complex web of financial transactions among some of the planners and participants who moved money from Russia and Switzerland to the British Virgin Islands, Bangkok, and a small office park in New Jersey. The documents show Aras Agalarov, a billionaire real estate developer close to both Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, at the center of this vast network and how he used accounts overseas to filter money to himself, his son, and at least two people who attended the Trump Tower meeting."

[CN: War; violence; death] Spencer Ackerman at the Daily Beast: Pompeo, Mattis Bless Saudi and UAE's Brutal War in Yemen. "Batting down congressional disquiet on U.S. aid to a war that has become one of the world's worst humanitarian crises, two top Trump Cabinet members vouched for humanitarian progress on the part of their allies, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary of Defense James Mattis attested Wednesday morning that both U.S.-supported nations 'are undertaking demonstrable actions to reduce the risk of harm to civilians and civilian infrastructure.' Their endorsement, called 'farcical' by Human Rights Watch's Sarah Leah Whitson, attempts to dodge a bipartisan congressional effort to block U.S. tanker aircraft from refueling Saudi and Emirati warplanes for the Yemen conflict."

[CN: Gun violence] Lois Beckett at the Guardian: 'A Human Rights Crisis': Amnesty Urges U.S. to Get Tough on Gun Violence. "American gun violence is 'a human rights crisis' and the U.S. government's refusal to pass gun control laws represents a violation of its citizens' right to life, according to a new report by Amnesty International. 'The USA is failing to protect individuals and communities most at risk of gun violence, in violation of international human rights law,' Amnesty argues. 'The right to live free from violence, discrimination, and fear has been superseded by a sense of entitlement to own a practically unlimited array of deadly weapons.'"

[CN: Disablism] Erin Heger at Rewire.News: People Are Losing Medicaid Coverage Because They Don't Understand the GOP's Work Requirements. "Thousands of Medicaid recipients in Arkansas have lost health coverage for the rest of the year after failing to meet the state's new Republican-backed work requirement. Some don't have health care today because they never knew about the stringent rules. Jessica Greene, a health policy professor at the City University of New York's Baruch College, interviewed 18 Medicaid recipients in northeast Arkansas in mid-August and reported a lack of awareness about the policy. Twelve of the 18 people Greene interviewed did not know about the new work requirement. Many of the Medicaid recipients didn't know how to report their satisfying of the work requirement online."

[CN: Anti-semitism; Holocaust denialism] Sam Levin at the Guardian: California Transit Agency Allows Ad from Holocaust Denial Group. "A San Francisco public transit agency has approved adverts from a group that promotes Holocaust denial and antisemitic views, claiming the organization has a 'free speech' right to buy train station billboards. Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) officials defended their decision to allow ads for the Institute for Historical Review (IHR), which the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has classified as a hate group that aims to 'defend Nazism' and spread Holocaust denial propaganda. ...They come at a time when antisemitic incidents have accelerated at alarming rates in the U.S. and across the world, and as far-right groups and neo-Nazis have increasingly pushed racist and fascist views under the guise of advocating for free speech."

[CN: Racism] Sameer Rao at Colorlines: MENA Actors Still Overwhelmingly Cast as 'Terrorists & Tyrants'. "Years of discussion about representation and narrative shift in Hollywood have yet to change the overwhelming representation of Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) people as oppressors and extremists who pervert Islam to justify violent subjugation. The MENA Arts Advocacy Coalition, an industry advocacy group pushing for stronger and more nuanced MENA representation, highlights this premise in a new collaborative study released [September 10]. ...MENA Americans constitute an estimated 3.2 percent of the U.S. population, but barely 1 percent of all on-screen roles. ...Seventy-eight percent of MENA characters are portrayed as terrorists or tyrants."

          : Rain in the north - Showers in the south, 12 Set - 05:43      Cache   Translate Page      

High temperatures maintained in the south and east, albeit with showers. Cooler to the north with some rain Wednesday Showers in eastern Spain, some heavy. Drier for the rest of Spain and Portugal with good spells of sunshine. The showers extend through the Balearics as well as Corsica and Sardinia. Italy should be fair with sunny spells and feeling warm. Showers affecting Greece and Portugal, again some of these will be heavy. France has a mix of sunshine and scattered showers. Cloud and some showery rain extends over northern Germany and the Low Countries. Poland, southern Germany, Austria and Hungary should all be dry with sunny spells. Thundery showers forming in Switzerland. Denmark will be rather cloudy with some showery rain. Breezy with rain and showers in the Baltic States. Finland will be windy with further showers. Drier in Sweden and windy. Norway will be unsettled and windy with rain, some heavy. Very warm or hot across Central and Southern Europe, temperatures typically in the high 20s to low 30s and locally exceeding 35C in parts of the south. Becoming progressively cooler further north, especially in the rain over Norway.

Thursday Isolated showers for the north and far south of Spain and the Balearics but staying dry with spells of sunshine across much of Portugal and Spain. Some sunshine but also showers, locally, heavy in Corsica Sardinia and Italy but dry into the Adriatic. Sunshine for Greece with early showers dying out but showers develop over Turkey, especially in central and northern parts with a risk of thunder. Early rain over the Low Countries and Northern France clears to give some sunshine but heavy showers are likely towards the east and south. Thundery showers for Austria and Switzerland, possibly extending into the south of Poland and Germany but dry with sunny spells further north. Further east and south, including towards the Black Sea coast it will be largely dry and sunny. Rainy over western and southern Norway but dry for much of the time over Scandinavia and the Baltic States, with only isolated showers. Lower temperatures sink a little further south into some central parts but the south remains very warm.

          Four States That Have Stayed Quiet Over Bolton’s ICC Speech      Cache   Translate Page      
I argued Tuesday that, while John Bolton’s speech on the International Criminal Court (ICC) was designed to be maximally offensive to the court and its supporters, the actual policy steps he suggested to counter the court were largely hollow. I also suggested that Bolton’s speech might actually bolster the court’s sagging legitimacy. And in the hours since the speech, a series of statements emerged from states reiterating their support for the ICC—unsurprisingly, mostly from within Europe. But there are four states that we have not heard from, and their reactions will be quite important for the looming Afghanistan investigation that was the focus of Bolton’s ire. Those states are Poland, Lithuania and Romania—all three of which have been specifically named by the ICC prosecutor in her latest update on the investigation—and, of course, Afghanistan itself. The cooperation of these governments will be important—perhaps…

Lattanzio (250-327), apologeta cristiano, criticò l’etimologia di “religione” proposta da Cicerone, ritenendo che questo termine dovesse essere riferito al “legame” tra l’uomo e la divinità.

di Enrico Furia


Il gioco del vero o del falso applicato a singoli fatti ed a singole affermazioni è la palestra della vita di tutti i giorni.  Ma né alla scienza, né alla religione basta stabilire la verità di singole affermazioni o di singole azioni: quello a cui aspiriamo è la perfetta conoscenza ed il perfetto controllo del meccanismo della conoscenza universale.


La religione è fatta di verità rivelate da Dio, quindi accettate per vere con atto di fede. Ma è proprio questa fede che viene derisa dalla scienza che si pone la conoscenza come qualcosa di “razionale”, quindi di “coerente”, logico.


La religione assume come vere le prescrizioni divine, e le accetta come comandamenti, quindi come postulati (principi scientifici non dimostrabili, ma che si assumono come veri). Da questi postulati si deriva ogni altra regola per deduzione. I dogmi sono postulati formulati dalla Chiesa.


 


In Scienza, Euclide è il primo matematico che si propone di costruire una teoria geometrica completa, organica, solidamente fondata, in cui tutto ciò che si ricava è assolutamente certo, per il fatto che le premesse iniziali sono indiscutibili e i procedimenti di deduzione sono assolutamente rigorosi.


Egli parte da alcune affermazioni geometriche, e da alcune nozioni di carattere generale, che funzionano da premesse a tutto il ragionamento. Queste affermazioni e nozioni, definite postulati, fungono da base certa e assolutamente vera, da cui si ricavano i teoremi (conseguenze deducibili dai postulati).


In conclusione, se una determinata proprietà geometrica è vera, essa compare nei postulati (quando la sua verità è del tutto evidente direttamente), oppure compare nei teoremi (quando la sua verità si deduce da altre verità accettate come vere). Per fare questo v’è bisogno di un ragionamento corretto (logica), oppure di una dimostrazione che, a partire dai postulati, permetta di convincersi della verità dell’affermazione.


Con questa sua ricerca certamente impressionante Euclide dettò le fondamenta della geometria, che in suo onore fu chiamata “Geometria euclidea”.


 


Ma qualcuno osò dubitare della teoria euclidea. Tra i postulati stabiliti da Euclide a fondamento del suo sistema deduttivo della geometria si trovò che ve n’era uno, il quinto (dato un punto ed una retta, esiste una e una sola retta passante per quel punto e parallela a quella retta), che non appariva così tanto “evidente” agli scienziati dei secoli successivi. Per questo motivo si pensò di escluderlo come postulato, e di assumerlo come teorema, tentando di darne dimostrazione nei secoli.


 


Ma Euclide aveva ragione. Infatti, intorno alla metà del 1800 Bolyai e Lobacevskij riescono a dare dimostrazione che il quinto postulato non è ricavabile come teorema a partire dagli altri postulati. Bene aveva fatto, dunque, Euclide a collocarlo tra i postulati.


 


Ma anche i non-euclidei non hanno lavorato invano. Costoro avevano dimostrato che fin troppe affermazioni geometriche erano dimostrabili anche senza usare il quinto postulato euclideo tra le premesse.


Questo fatto è stato determinante nell’affermare la possibilità di giocare a costruire geometrie che non partano dagli stessi postulati scelti da Euclide. Pertanto, accanto alla Geometria con la G maiuscola (quella euclidea), sono fiorite tante altre geometrie non-euclidee (Riemann, Klein) in cui il quinto postulato viene addirittura sostituito da asserzioni opposte (dato un punto ed una retta, non esiste nessuna retta passante per quel punto e parallela a quella retta).


Oggi esistono tante geometrie, più o meno strane, purchè fondate su premesse coerenti.


Quindi non più la “Geometria, assoluta”, vera per davvero, schema vero della realtà vera; piuttosto più geometrie, ciascuna con una relazione con la realtà fisica forse ancor più complessa, o semplice, ed a volte più utili della geometria euclidea a comprendere aspetti teorici e pratici.


 


La morale dell’excursus scientifico citato vuole essere severo in più sensi.


In scienza (la geometria per molti né è la madre) l’elemento decisivo non è il confronto con la realtà fisica, ma la coerenza e finanche la bellezza, l’eleganza della costruzione.


Occorre essere duttili, liberali, “fedeli” per quanto concerne le premesse, ovvero i “principi primi”, i postulati, i comandamenti, e rigidi, severi e restrittivi per quanto riguarda lo schema di ragionamento. Tutto questo significa che dobbiamo rassegnarci a risultati sempre “relativi” e “parziali”, e che le affermazioni discendono da premesse che non chiamiamo più postulati, ma assiomi (principi che non pretendiamo più essere verità assolute come per i postulati, ma solo compatibili tra loro).


Non esistono verità scientifiche “assolute” (vere sempre, comunque ed ovunque), ma è assoluto il metodo di deduzione. “I procedimenti e le formule di ragionamento ammissibili vengono precisati ed esplicitati una volta per tutte, superando quella che agli occhi dei logici moderni appare una certa vaghezza presente non solo nella trattazione di Euclide, ma anche nelle opere dei matematici dei secoli successivi”.


 


Solo sedicenti scienziati possono “deridere” i postulati, o i dogmi religiosi, in quanto non sanno che tutta la scienza è basata su dogmi (principi) che si basano su veri e propri “atti di fede”  per essere creduti veri.


Inoltre, non si confonda la scienza con la tecnologia, perché quest’ultima si indirizza solo ad applicare teorie scientifiche a fini pratici e particolari, vale a dire utili solo per determinate condizioni di tempo, spazio ed ambiente, pertanto non universali, ma solo contingenti.


Né, tantomeno si confonda la Legge della scienza con la Legge della stato. La prima è un’affermazione fortemente corroborata, quando non è ancora dimostrata. La seconda è solo un’imposizione di potere che poco o nulla ha in comune con una qualsiasi legge scientifica.

Enrico Furia


 


E’ da ricordare che la “logica” è la tecnica del corretto ragionamento, il quale partendo dalle premesse, ed impiegando gli argomenti logici, costruisce le conclusioni. Se le premesse sono vere e gli argomenti logici  coerenti, le conclusioni devono essere vere.


 


Karl Popper ha detto che nessuna teoria è dimostrabile, ma solo “corroborabile”, vale a dire “irrobustita” da un solido ragionamento.

《インチキ遺骨ではなくて、拉致被害者を返せ!日・朝関係、近く動き出す可能性?》

アメリカと北朝鮮の歴史的な首脳会談からまもなく3か月。
9月10日夜のBS日テレ『深層NEWS』に出演したコリア・レポートの辺真一編集長は、拉致問題を含む日・朝関係が近く動き出す可能性があると述べました。

「日本側が再三にわたって北朝鮮側にアプローチしている。安倍晋三首相自らが再三にわたって北朝鮮に首脳会談の意思有りというメッセージを届けているというのが現実。水面下では7月に北朝鮮の要人と北村 滋内閣情報官が会ったと。それを受けて今日の韓国特使の金(正恩)委員長との会談の中身・結果の報告。そこで日・朝問題、拉致問題についても取り上げたということですから、恐らくそれは日本側が要請した。そしてその回答を聞いたということですから、もしそれが前向きな返事ということであれば、これは当然、動くんではないかなと」
(辺真一編集長)

辺編集長はまた、「拉致問題の解決なくして日・朝国交正常化はない」との日本政府の基本姿勢が、

「国交正常化のために拉致問題を解決しよう」

という形に変わっているのではないかと指摘しました。

◆昭和55(1980)年5月頃
欧州における日本人男性拉致容疑事案
被害者:石岡 亨さん(To-o-ru Ishioka)
(拉致被害時22歳)
※This person was Abduction by North Korea
被害者:松木 薫さん(Kaoru Matsuki)
(拉致被害時26歳)

2人とも欧州滞在中の昭和55年に失踪。
昭和63年に石岡さんから日本の家族に出した手紙(ポーランドの消印)が届き、石岡さん、松木さん、そして有本恵子さんが北朝鮮に在住すると伝えてきた。
北朝鮮側は、石岡 亨さんは1988(昭和63)年11月にガス事故で有本恵子さんと共に死亡したとしているが、これを裏付ける資料等の提供はなされていない。
また、同様に松木 薫さんについても、1996(平成8)年8月に交通事故で死亡したとして、平成14年9月及び平成16年11月に開催された第3回日・朝実務者協議と2回にわたり、北朝鮮側から松木さんの「遺骨」の可能性があるとされるものが提出されたが、そのうちの一部からは、同人のものとは異なるDNAが検出されたとの鑑定結果を得た。
捜査当局は拉致実行犯である「よど号」犯人の妻・森 順子及び若林(旧姓:黒田)佐喜子について、平成19年6月に逮捕状の発付を得て国際手配するとともに、政府として北朝鮮側に身柄の引渡しを要求している。

[In or around May 1980: Two Japanese men abducted in Europe]

Abductees: Toru Ishioka (22, male, Europe), Kaoru Matsuki (26, male, Europe)
Both men disappeared while living in Europe in 1980. A letter postmarked in Poland and sent by Mr. Ishioka in 1988 to his family in Japan indicated that he, Mr. Matsuki and Keiko Arimoto (see 12 below) were all living in North Korea.
North Korea asserts that Mr. Ishioka and Ms. Arimoto died in a gas poisoning accident in November 1988, but has provided no documents or evidence to support these claims. North Korea also asserts that Mr. Matsuki died in an automobile accident in August 1996. In September 2002, and at the Third Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations held in September 2002 and November 2004, North Korea handed over remains possibly belonging to Mr. Matsuki, but analysis in Japan indicates that these remains contain DNA belonging to someone else.
The Japanese authorities issued arrest warrants in June 2007 for Junko Mori and Sakiko Wakabayashi (nee Kuroda), wives of Yodo-go members, who are believed to be responsible for these abductions, and listed them both with Interpol. The GoJ demands that North Korea extradite them to Japan.

[In or around June 1978: Former restaurant worker abducted]

Abductee: Minoru Tanaka (28, male, Hyogo Prefecture)
Disappeared after departing Japan for Europe.
The GoJ requested that North Korea provide information on this case at the 12th round of Japan-North Korea Normalization Talks held in Kuala Lumpur in October 2002 and all three Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations held in 2004. During the third round of consultations, North Korea asserted that there is no evidence that Mr. Tanaka had ever entered North Korean territory.
Since April 2005, when the GoJ officially identified Minoru Tanaka as an abductee, the GoJ has demanded that North Korea immediately allow him to return to Japan and provide a full accounting of his case. North Korea, however, has not responded.



【SEA OF MERCY】
The book named “Sea of Mercy”
13-year- old junior high school student Takeshi Terakoshi was abducted in May 1963.
He went fishing with his two uncle, Shoji and Soto-o Terakoshi. The fishingboat named Kiyomaru left for the fishing ground nearby Noto island, Ishikawa prefecture.
Kiyomaru encountered North Korean spy vessel. Spies were afraid of detection.
Soto-o and Takeshi were abducted and carried to Chong-jin city. Shoji was considered to be killed at the site.
Families, fellow fishermen and coast guard searched the area, but they could find only Kiyomaru and Takeshi’s school uniform.
They thought 3 persons were in disress and died. Funeral service was held.24 Years were passed.
In 1987, Soto-o’s sister received the letter from Soto-o and surprised.
Soto-o wrote “Takeshi and I am living in Gusong, North Korea”.
Takeshi’s father and mother visited to North Korea in1988 and met with Soto-o and Takeshi.
But they couldn’t say how they carried to North Korea because NK officials watched them.
North Korea made the story of their shipwreck accident and lifesaving.
Since then, Takeshi’s parents visited to him a lot of times but Takeshi and his family members cannot say that Takeshi and his uncles were abducted.
In 1997, Megumi Yokota case was appeared in the media and the national congress. Terakoshi’s case was also observed as an abduction case. But “he” denied that he was abducted and praised North Korea and the Kim family.
In December 2001, Pyongyang publishing company published a book named “Sea of Mercy”.
The author is Kim Myong-ho, Takeshi’s Korean name.
In that book, Takeshi wrote that they are not the abduction victims but happily living in North Korea after they ware saved. Moreover “he" denied other abduction case such as Megumi Yokota and Yaeko Taguchi in this book.
Nine months later, Kim Jong-il admitted and appologized for the abduction activities.
But North Korea still denies Terakoshi’s case as abduction and Takeshi and his family cannot say he was abduction victim because Takeshi himself is a hostage.
“Sea of Mercy”, the title is a symbol of North Korean regime.

          The most famous Briton I had never heard of      Cache   Translate Page      
While watching TVP2 early on in my Polish adventure, I happened upon a colourful program about Europe with what seemed like foreign people speaking fluent Polish including an English guy. Being only subjected to Polish culture and people for a couple of months, I became extremely excited that there was an Englishman on TV and I wanted to tell everyone. Little did I know at the time that this was Kevin Aiston and this guy is a huge star here but unheard of outside of the country. I was more intrigued because he was speaking fluent Polish and I immediately wanted to know how as I was struggling with my own language development.


Kevin Aiston - the ambassador


Kevin was a chemical engineer in England from Chelsea (Just down the road from me) but became disillusioned with the country after the introduction of the Poll Tax in late 80's and spent times in various parts of Europe before falling in love with Poland and arrived in Warsaw at 22. And now he is a major media star representing all things English as well as being in the fire brigade.

The advice to learning the language is to only listen to Polish and forget about using and being exposed to English (A common mistake). Good advice.

          Stańczyki Viaducts in gołdapski, Poland      Cache   Translate Page      

Stańczyki Viaducts.

What looks like two enormous Roman viaducts stand near a small Polish village. These defunct railroad bridges tower over the tiny settlement and its surrounding woodland.

The Stańczyki Viaducts are among the largest bridges in Poland. The reinforced concrete behemoths stretch nearly 600 feet long, stand 120 feet tall, and boast arches that clock in at just under 50 feet long.

The two bridges were built in the 20th century; the northern one between 1914 and 1914 and its southern counterpart between 1923 and 1926. They served as railway overpasses that connected the towns of Gołdap and Żytkiejmy.

During World War II, trains carted both military and building supplies as well as passengers across the viaducts, which stood in an area that was then part of Germany. But after the war ended, the Soviet Army dismantled the railway tracks, rendering the bridges useless.

Up until 2001, the abandoned viaducts were used by bungee jumpers. In 2003, the structures were sold to a private entrepreneur. Visitors can now visit the bridges (for a small fee) to get a close look at these towering overpasses.

          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?"

          Who's Next 2018: Mr. Gugu & Miss Go      Cache   Translate Page      


Hej hej! Ponownie miałam okazję sprawdzić się w roli tłumacza na targach Who's Next, dla polskiej marki Mr. Gugu & Miss Go! Chodźcie, trochę opowiem Wam o ciuchach, które najbardziej mi się spodobały :-)


Jak wiecie moja przyjaźń z Gugu trwa już dobre pięć lat, podczas których miałam okazję solidnie przetestować większość ich asortymentu, a także poznać część ekipy podczas trzech edycji paryskich targów mody. Bardzo cenię to, że produkują wszystko w Polsce, w dodatku w Bielsko-Białej, czyli rzut beretem od mojego rodzinnego Sosnowca :-) Mam też słabość do wszystkiego, co zwariowane i tęczowe, więc estetyka gugu-ciuchów przyprawia mnie o szybsze bicie serca :D 

Ponieważ spędziłam cztery dni targów wśród ich kolorowych ubrań, pozwoliłam sobie na dokładne obejrzenie i podotykanie wszystkich produktów. Uwaga, spojler: zakochałam się jeszcze bardziej!
Hello hello! Once again, I had a chance to work as a translator at the Who's Next fashion fair, for the Polish brand Mr. Gugu & Miss Go! So come here with me, I'd like to show you some colourful pics and talk to you about the clothes that I liked the most :-)


As you know, my friendship with Gugu has been going on for around five years, and during this time I had the opportunity to test most of their products, as well as get to know part of their team during three editions of the Parisian Who's Next. I'm proud that they create all their products in Poland, and what is more, they are based in Bielsko-Biala, which is very close to my hometown of Sosnowiec :-) I also have a soft spot for everything with crazy and colourful prints on, so the Gugu aesthetics are really perfect for me :D

I've spent four days surrounded by their colourful clothes, and I had a chance to see and touch all of them. Spoiler alert: I'm even more in love with them!
Salut salut ! Une fois de plus, j'ai eu la chance de travailler comme traductrice au salon de la mode Who's Next à Paris, pour la marque polonaise Mr. Gugu & Miss Go! Alors je vous invite à regarder quelques photos prises sur place et à lire mon avis sur les fringues que j'ai aimé le plus :-)


Comme vous le savez bien, mon amitié avec Gugu dure depuis environ cinq ans, et pendant cette période j'ai eu l'occasion de tester la plupart de leurs produits et de rencontrer une partie de leur équipe lors de trois éditions de Who's Next. Je suis très contente qu'ils fabriquent leurs produits en Pologne, et de plus, ils sont basés à Bielsko-Biala, une ville très proche de ma ville natale de Sosnowiec :-) J'ai aussi un faible pour les vêtements un peu loufoques et bien colorés, alors l'esthétique de Gugu est pile-poil dans mon registre :-)




Największa i najważniejsza nowość to zmieniony skład! Praktycznie wszystkie modele są teraz szyte z mieszanki bawełny (70% !) z poliestrem. Dzięki temu ciuchy są jeszcze bardziej przewiewne, miękkie i miłe w dotyku (i noszeniu!), a jednocześnie nadruki pozostają żywe, nasycone i totalnie nie do sprania. Musiałam bardzo się pilnować, żeby nie spędzić całych targów na mizianiu bluz, które są super przyjemne, a w dodatku mają wewnątrz cudnego "misia" :D Jest z nimi tylko jeden problem: szkoda je zdjąć pod koniec dnia ;-)
What was the most important thing to me was the fact that now the composition of their clothes has changed. It's now a nice 70% cotton with only 30% of polyester, and thanks to this the clothes are really soft and pleasant to touch (and to wear!), while the prints remain nicely vivid. I had to stop myself from touching the sweatshirts all the time, but they're so soft and they have a nice "fluffy" inside texture, I just couldn't resist :-)
La plus grande nouveauté pour moi, est la nouvelle composition de leurs vêtements, qui sont maintenant, pour la plupart, fabriqués à partir d'un mélange de 70% de coton et seulement 30% de polyester. Grâce à cela ils sont vraiment tout doux et agréables au toucher (et à porter !), tandis que les imprimés, comme toujours avec Gugu, restent très vifs et résistants au lavage. Je devais m'empêcher de toucher les sweat-shirts tout le temps, mais ils sont tellement doux et ils ont un pilou-pilou à l'intérieur, que je n'arrivais pas à me retenir :-)




Mr. Gugu ma obecnie siostrzaną markę Carpatree, zajmującą się ubraniami sportowymi. Okej, dobrze wiecie, że moja aktywność fizyczna ogranicza się do regularnej jazdy na hulajnodze i bardzo okazjonalnej gry w badmintona, a bycie fit to dla mnie smarowanie placka ziemniaczanego Majonezem Kieleckim… Chciałam jednak pokazać Wam kilka zdjęć ich modeli, bo pewnie większość z Was jest jednak bardziej wkręcona w sport niż ja i może coś wpadnie Wam w oko. Ciuchy są bardzo dobrze uszyte i wytrzymałe, a materiał miły w dotyku - tyle mogę napisać jako sportowy laik i fit-leń ;-)
Mr. Gugu has a separate brand called Carpatree, with sportswear and sport accessories. You all know that I'm not really a sporty person, but I wanted to show you some of their products, because I suppose that a great part of you is more into sport than I am, so maybe you'll find some nice pieces for yourself :-) What I can say is that after checking out their sportswear collection I find their clothes very well made and nice to touch.
Mr. Gugu possède également une marque de vêtements et accessoires de sport Carpatree. Vous savez que je ne suis pas trop sportive, mais je voulais vous montrer quelques produits Carpatree dans mon post, car je suppose qu'une bonne partie d'entre vous est bien plus sportive que moi, alors peut-être certaines de ces pièces vont vous plaire :-) Ce que je peux affirmer de mon côté, c'est qu'après avoir vu leur collection de vêtements de sport, je les trouve vraiment bien cousus et agréables au toucher.




Jeśli jednak miałabym wybrać jeden największy hit, to zdecydowanie byłaby to seria Greatest Art Collection. Mam już z niej mojego ukochanego Egona i Klimta, a teraz nowe modele są szyte z tej mieszanki z większością bawełny… więc ciężko jest mi opanować entuzjazm :D Jeśli jesteście odważni, zobaczcie całość kolekcji na stronie Gugu TUTAJ. Ale ostrzegam, u mnie skończyło się na jednym wielkim "CHCĘ WSZYSTKO" :D


Cieszę się, że mogłam ponownie spędzić przemiły czas z ekipą Gugu, jednocześnie zapoznając się z nowościami ich marki, bo mocno im kibicuję i trzymam kciuki!


A Wam który nadruk podoba się najbardziej? Buziaki! :-) 
However if I had to choose just one biggest favourite of mine, it would be the Gugu's Greatest Art Collection. I already own my beloved Egon and Klimt sweaters, and now all the new models are made using this super soft cotton blend textile… so it's hard for me to stay calm and not go bananas :D If you feel brave enough, check the whole collection on their website HERE, but be warned, because personally I ended up with a big "I-WANT-EVERYTHING" reaction :D


I'm glad that I was able to spend all this nice time with the Gugu team, and at the same time check out their new items. I really strongly support them and keep my fingers crossed for all their projects!


And what is your favourite print design? Hugs! :-)
Cependant, si je devais choisir mon favori, ce serait leur ligne Greatest Art Collection. Je possède déjà des sweats avec Egon et Klimt, et maintenant, en plus, tous les nouveaux modèles sont fabriqués avec ce textile en mélange de coton super doudou… il m'est donc difficile de rester bien calme devant cette collection :D Vous pouvez voir tous les modèles ICI, sur leur site web, mais soyez vigilants, car pour ma part j'ai fini avec la réaction de "JE VEUX TOUT" :D


Je suis trop contente d'avoir pu passer tout ce temps avec l'équipe de Gugu super sympa, et, en même temps, de pouvoir voir leurs nouveautés. Je les soutiens à fond et je croise les doigts pour tous leurs projets !


Et quel est le modèle qui vous a le plus plu ? Bisous ! :-)

Αύξηση του κατώτατου μισθού στην Πολωνία

προσθήκη στα αγαπημένα 
Ο μικτός κατώτατος μισθός στην Πολωνία θα ανέβει το 2019 στα 2.250 ζλότι, δηλαδή 522,6 ευρώ, σημειώνοντας αύξηση 7,1%, αποφάσισε η κυβέρνηση.

Το ωρομίσθιο θα ανέλθει στα 14,7 ζλότι, δηλ. 3,4 ευρώ, διευκρίνισαν ο πρωθυπουργός Ματέους Μοραβιέτσκι και η υπουργός Οικογένειας, Εργασίας και Κοινωνικής Πολιτικής Ελζμπιέτα Ραφάλσκα, στη διάρκεια επίσκεψής χθες στην επαρχία, μεταδίδουν σήμερα πολωνικά ΜΜΕ.

Η καλή οικονομική κατάσταση της χώρας επιτρέπει μια αύξηση αρκετά σημαντική, σε συμφωνία με τον ρυθμό ανάπτυξης (4,6% το 2017, προβλεπόμενος: 3,8% το 2018) και τη μείωση της ανεργίας, εξήγησαν οι δύο αξιωματούχοι.

Οι αριθμοί αυτοί, που ανακοινώθηκαν έξι εβδομάδες πριν από τη διεξαγωγή των δημοτικών εκλογών που θα είναι ένα πρώτο σημαντικό τεστ για τους συντηρητικούς οι οποίοι βρίσκονται στην εξουσία από τον Οκτώβριο του 2015, είναι σαφώς ανώτεροι εκείνων που είχε προβλέψει η κυβέρνηση.

Ο μικτός κατώτατος μισθός αντιπροσωπεύει το 47,2% του μικτού μέσου μισθού που προβλέπεται από τους στατιστικολόγους για το 2019. Οι αυξήσεις που ανακοινώθηκαν ανταποκρίνονται σχεδόν ακριβώς στις απαιτήσεις που διατύπωσε το συνδικάτο Αλληλεγγύη, το οποίο γενικά πρόσκειται στο κυβερνών κόμμα Νόμος και Δικαιοσύνη (PiS). Αντίθετα, είναι σαφώς μικρότερες εκείνων του άλλου μεγάλου κεντρικού συνδικάτου OPZZ.

Ο καθαρός κατώτατος μισθός στην Πολωνία θα αντιστοιχεί περίπου σε 380 ευρώ το 2019.

World War II

World War II was the bloodiest war in human history. Over 50 million human beings died in it. It has been studied massively by scholars among from across the spectrum of humanity. Also, it is a war that made us aware of the sacrifice of heroes who defeated Nazism. Like always, we memorize the victims of the evil Holocaust. World War II existed in many phases like the coming of war, the rise of fascist and authoritarian empires, the war itself, and the aftermath of World War II. World War II is directly related to WWI and the Great Depression. The event of WWI ended with many nations suffering economic recessions. Later, dictatorships would rise up that exploited the suffering of peoples in order for these authoritarian rulers to promote racism, bigotry, xenophobia, and ultimately genocide against innocent human beings. By November 1918, Germany surrendered to the Allied forces in ending World War One. The peace agreement was formed in 1919 with delegates from 27 nations. Most of the decisions in that agreement were established by America, France, and Great Britain. Germany and Russia weren’t there. The Treaty of Versailles was hated by Germany since it forced Germany to pay monumental reparations for its role in WWI. Italy and Japan wanted more from the deal too. Wilson thought that this agreement would end wars worldwide, but it didn’t. The 1920’s saw many countries move into democracy and freedom. Other nations came into the opposite direction in embracing dictatorships and totalitarianism. Totalitarianism means that a single party or one solitary leader controls every economic, social, and cultural aspects of people in one country. Totalitarianism would spread massively in the world by the 20th century. The 1917 Russian Revolution led Stalin to take power. Ironically, Lenin and especially Trotsky were critics of Stalin because of his totalitarian tendencies and his reckless actions. So, Joseph Stalin took power after the Russian civil war. That brutal civil war caused starvation, famine, and the deaths of millions of Russians. Lenin, before he died, moderated some of his economic policies.

By 1924, Stalin took over the Communist Party in Russia. Stalin was cruel, a murderer, and a tyrant. He regularly allowed the murder of his rivals and even fellow Communists who disagreed with him. He grew the industrial power of many farms. His Great Terror program murdered Communists who opposed him in the 1930’s. About one million people were imprisoned. The purge eliminated most of the leading officers of the Red Army plus others. Stalin promoted propaganda to maintain his vicious rule. He also violated religious freedom by destroying churches and suppressing religious expression throughout the Soviet Union. Stalin went so far that even to this day; many people falsely view every Communist and every socialist as equivalent to Stalin. Stalin ironically did more to slander socialism than any reactionary extremist could ever do.  Italian totalitarianism rose after Italy being a victor of WWI. Ironically, Italy was once part of the Allied forces during WWI. Italy didn’t get lands on the Adriatic coast that it wanted. Italy experienced a depression after WWI as well.

Veterans in Italy had trouble to find work. The communist party was growing and the government had trouble in trying to adequately handle economic issues. Later, Benito Mussolini rose up in political power. He was once more liberal and then became a dedicated fascist. By 1919, Mussolini created the Fasci di Combattimento or the Fascist Party. This was a far right wing group that promoted nationalism and wanted to control Italy. He had his followers. They were the Black shirts. These criminals fought communists and socialists in the streets of Italy. Italian King Victor Emmanuel III feared revolution. So, he asked Mussolini to form a new government. Benito was called Il Duce or the leader. Benito controlled the government, the army, etc. after years of conflict. He later ended political parties. He controlled the press. He formed a secret police. He promoted brainwashing involving youth groups and Mussolini opposed strikes. He hated liberalism and socialism. Fascism was spreading like a cancer in the world.

The Further Rise of Fascism

For a time before the rise of Hitler and after World War One, Germany was a democracy. This was the Weimar Republic which was formed in the German town in Weimar.  It suffered struggles because of the economic problems in 1920’s Germany. High inflation and huge economic troubles caused the Weimar Republic to be on the brink of collapse. By the 1930’s, the Great Depression was global and further harmed the Weimar Republic.  Socialist groups were in existence desiring change. Also, antidemocratic far right groups were in existence like the National Socialist German Workers’ Party or the Nazi Party. They threatened the republic. The Nazis were not socialists. They hated socialism, communism, and other beliefs that promoted workers’ rights and class interests. Socialism believes in class struggle and racial equality while the Nazis believed in white supremacy and racism. Adolf Hitler was the leader of the Nazi Party. Hitler was the son of an Austrian civil servant. Hitler also was a decorated World War I soldier and a failed artist. He was near madness and he was completely evil. He joined the small Nazi Party after the war and ruled it later on. He was in prison because his party tried to cause a rebellion in an attempt to overthrow the Weimar Republic. His book that he wrote in prison was entitled, Mein Kampf or My Struggle. It scapegoated Jewish people, socialists, communists, etc. for the economic problems in Germany. He was very anti-Semitic and he hated Jewish people greatly. Anti-Semitism has been in Europe for centuries and Hitler promoted pseudo-scientific theories as a means to proclaim his racist ideologies. Mein Kampf was a national bestseller in Germany. This book wanted Nazis to have global domination and the extermination of Jewish people plainly speaking. The book falsely assumed that black people were inferior, which is a lie. Germany by the 1930’s had unemployment, hunger, homelessness, and economic collapse. The Nazis gained control by the Germany government by January 1933.

By that time, the president of the Weimar Republic appointed Hitler as chancellor of Germany. Hitler was later President and increased his power massively. Hitler made his powers unchecked by the German parliament or the Reichstag. In 1935, the Weimar Republic’s institutions were silenced. Hitler was the sole ruler of Germany. Hitler was a totalitarian like Mussolini and France. Hitler formed a secret police that crushed dissent. The state controlled press the praised him. He promoted Hitler Youth and the League of German Girls to indoctrinate the youth with Nazi ideas. By the late 1930’s, Hitler used rearmament and public works projects. The Germans cheered for him at Nazi rallies. He attacked Jewish people, communists, and socialists. Many Jewish people suffered abuse, discrimination, and murder by the Nazis and their supporters as well. Japan once saw democracy grow in the 1920’s. There were trade unions, men voting, and other parties formed. This ended with the Great Depression. By the 1930’s, Japan moved into a more militaristic direction. Japan had a constitutional monarchy ruled by one emperor. Japan used its military to attack Manchuria in 1931. They moved a more new regime called Manchukuo in Manchuria. They gained more natural resources in Asia by invasion. They also invaded China to steal Chinese railroads and coastal resources. They also conquered Nanjing where Japanese soldiers murder more than 200,000 Chinese people and many women were raped (called the Rape of Nanjing). Militarism spread in Italy, Germany, and Japan.

Image result for rape of nankingImage result for tojo

The League of Nations was very weak by America refusing to join it. The League of Nations had no army, no navy, and no power to enforce its proclamations. Hitler and Mussolini harmed societies. Germany’s economy grew from 1933 to 1936. He or Hitler wanted all Germanic peoples to be united in one Reich or state. He wanted to have Lebensraum or living space for Germanic peoples. He sent German troops to the Rhineland by 1936 and the League of Nations didn’t respond to stop him. Mussolini invaded Ethiopia in 1935, which was an independent African nation. Haile Selassie or the leader of Ethiopia wanted the League of Nations to respond and help them, but the League of Nations refused to do so. Ethiopia was conquered until years later when Ethiopia defeated the Italian invaders. Fascists fought in the Spanish Civil War. It lasted from 1936 to 1939. It was about the fascist nationalists fighting against Spain’s democratic Republican government. Hitler and Mussolini aided Franco and the Spanish fascists during the civil war. General Francisco Franco tested his military technology in the war. The Soviet Union aided the Republican forces. France, Britain, and the United States remained on the sidelines mostly (except for some Americans and other Westerners volunteering to join the Republican cause). The Fascists won the Spanish civil war unfortunately.

Isolationism vs. Interventionism

By the 1930’s, France and Britain wanted appeasement in dealing with the aggressive, fascist nations of Nazi Germany, etc. This wanted to make concessions to prevent enemy nations from going forward with all-out war and maintain peace. This policy didn’t work as the fascist leaders would be bolder to try to conquer more lands unjustly. Some appeasers viewed World War I as so bloody that they wanted peace at any cost. Some believed that the Soviet Union was more of a threat than Germany or Italy. Franklin Delano Roosevelt wanted a Good Neighbor policy with Latin America. He improved relations with the Soviet Union. Back then, at first, he didn’t take a forceful line against Germany aggression. He wanted to focus on its American problems and later embraced isolationism. FDR would later reject isolationism. Hitler in the spring of 1938 conquered Austria. He formed the Anschluss in Austria. He conquered Sudenteland in the fall of 1938. That region of western Czechoslovakia was many ethnic Germans living there. Britain and France appeased Nazi Germany during the Munich Conference. Hitler and British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain plus French premier Edouard Daladier allowed Hitler to rule Sudetenland in order to try to get peace. Chamberlain came to London and praised the Munich Pact. He was wrong as war would occur 11 months later.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt later condemned aggression in Asia and he did little to stop it. There was the 1937 attack on China. It shocked Americans and the rape of Nanjing would come in December of 1937. Japan attacked with no declaration of war. China experienced terrorism by Japan forces among its cities like in Shanghai and Nanjing. 3 American sailors were killed and the United States gunboat Panay on the Chang River was sank. FDR criticized Japan’s aggression in a speech in Chicago on October 5, 1937. He condemned Japanese attacks on civilian populations. He also said that no part of the war is truly isolated form the world. He wanted an alliance of nations to promote peace against aggression. He was criticized by many for his interventionist stance. Japan continued to invade more territories. France and Britain couldn’t stop Hitler’s aggression. Hitler conquered all of Czechoslovakia into German hands. This alarmed France and Britain. They started to prepare plans for a defensive measure against the Nazis. France and Britain said that if Nazi invaded other territories, then war would transpire. Britain and France signed an agreement with Poland aiding them if Hitler invaded Poland. Hitler wanted the Soviet Union to be a buffer against Poland. So, he or Adolf Hitler would not fight 2 fronts in a war.

That is why Germany signed the Nazi-Soviet Nonaggression Pact with the Soviets on August 23, 1939. They promised to not attack each other. They also agreed to invade and divide up Poland. This aggressive agreement shocked the world. It was one of the biggest mistakes of the Soviet Union. During the early mornings of September 1, 1939, Nazi Germany invaded Poland with a blitzkrieg strike. Fast moving tanks and soldiers conquered Poland. The Soviet Union invaded Poland from the east on September 17, 1939. France and Britain did nothing to help Poland. Poland was soon defeated by the end of September. World War II started with the Nazi invasion of Poland. The Axis Powers were Germany, Italy, Japan, and other nations. The Allies included Britain, France, and later other countries like America, China, plus the Soviet Union. During the spring of 1940, Germany invaded Denmark and Norway on April 9, 1940. By May 10, he used his blitzkrieg forces into the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg. His army was fast and powerful. Laster, he fought France. There was the Maginot Line and other areas. In May 1940, Germany moved into the Ardennes and British forces escaped form Dunkirk. Soon, France was defeated and conquered. It took only 35 days for Hitler to rule over France. The Nazis marched in Paris.

Winston Churchill gave speeches to Parliament and other places in England to fight the Nazi threat. He said on June 4, 1940 that he would fight everywhere against the Nazis and he won’t surrender. He rallied the British nation. They prepared for battles. Soon, Hitler invaded Britain via Operation Sea Lion. He or Hitler wanted the German air force of the Luftwaffe to bomb the British Royal Air Force. He wanted to control the British skies. The air battle continued between England and the Nazis. The Nazis attacked on July of 1940 starting the Battle of Britain. Almost 1,000 British planes were lost. More than 1,700 Nazi planes were lost. The Blitz included the Nazis destroying civilian infrastructure in Britain. Churches, homes, factories, schools, and other areas were bombed. Many British people lived in subways to escape the bombing campaign from Germany. Later, Hitler halted invasion attempts and the British were victorious. While this was going on, Winston Churchill wanted America to ally with him in fighting the Nazis. Many viewed this war as a fight for democracy globally. Nazis threatened human freedoms worldwide and that’s true.

Back then, America was mostly isolationist. President Roosevelt agreed with Churchill that the Nazi threat was real, but FDR knew that most Americans were opposed to U.S. intervention. The Great Depression was just ending. Many Americans wanted to focus on domestic affairs. The isolationist movement grew after the Nye Committee (named after Congressman Gerald Nye of South Dakota) saying that corporate interests benefited from World War One. Congress even passed the Neutrality Acts of 1935, 1936, and 1937. These laws used restrictions on American trade during the time of war. One example of this policy was Americans were forbidden to sail on ships owned by belligerents or nations at war. Americans were banned from making loans to belligerents or selling them arms and munitions. These laws didn’t make a distinction between aggressors like Nazis and Italy and victims like Poland or Great Britain and France. The interventionists wanted the support of America to giave great aid to the Allied cause.

Roosevelt was angry at the limitations of the Neutrality Acts. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was anti-Nazi and promoted democracies. Congress passed the Neutrality Act of 1939. This act was different in that it makes it legal to have a cash and carry policy. This allowed belligerent nations to buy goods and arms in the United States if they paid cash and carried the merchandise on their own ships. The British navy controlled the seas. This policy allowed America to aid the British economically. Some Americans didn’t like Roosevelt’s pro-Allies stance. These people wanted isolation and neutrality even in the midst of millions of Jewish people dying by the Holocaust. Isolationists and interventionists debated each other greatly in 1940 and 1941. This came when Britain was alone in Europe fighting the Nazis. Some interventionists wanted to aid the British as a way to keep America out of the war militarily. One group promoting this view was the Committee to Defend America by Aiding the Allies. Isolationists wanted neutrality. They wanted no funding of Allies since they believed that it would ultimately cause war against the Axis. Many of the isolationists were indeed racists and pro-Nazis.  The America First Committee was an isolationist group. Charles Lindbergh was one leading isolationist who condemned the Soviet Union and Japan while not massively criticizing the Axis Powers back then (until Pearl Harbor). The American First Committee had rallies nationwide. American journalist Edward R. Murrow reported news during the Battle of Britain. He exposed the fact that the Nazis were bombing civilian targets. This motivated interventionists to continue in the fight to defend democracy. Germany, Italy, and Japan had the Tripartite Pact in September of 1940. This agreement wanted each nation to defend each other in case they were attacked by another power.

Congress passed the Selective Service Act. This was a peacetime draft. It gave military training of 1.3 million troops and 800,000 reserve troops every year. Also, President Roosevelt aided Great Britain more. He gave 50 WWI era battleships in eight British defense bases. He did this without the consent of Congress as it was an emergency in his mind. FDR soon was elected for an unprecedented third time against Republican nominee Wendell L. Willkie of Indiana. Willkie accused FDR of not handling economic and foreign policy affairs the right way. Yet, most Americans wanted FDR to maintain the course of American society. Once re-elected, President Franklin Roosevelt supported Britain even more. FDR was short on funds from the cash and carry goods program. FDR addressed Congress on January 6, 1941.  He spoke of the four freedoms. They were the freedom of speech, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want, and the freedom from fear. These freedoms were threatened by the Nazi and Japanese militarism. Roosevelt wanted America to aid the Allies in order to stop the Nazi empire. Roosevelt wanted to promote America as the “great arsenal for democracy.” Britain wanted help and America gave the UK help. In March of 1941, Congress passed the Lend-Lease Act. It was numbered 1776 after the big debate among isolationists and interventionists. The act gave Roosevelt the power to send and lease plus lend resources to allies in defense of America. By 1945, America sent more than $40 billion of Lend-Lease aid to the Allies plus to the Soviet Union. It was an act of economic war against the Nazis and the rest of the Axis Powers.

The historic Atlantic Charter promoted an alliance among Great Britain and America. It occurred on August of 1941. This was when President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill met secretly on a warship of the coast of Newfoundland. They walked about the British response in the world. They also wanted to talk about the future after the war ended and after Hitler was defeated. Both of them signed the Atlantic Charter, which promoted national self-determination and an international system of general security. Roosevelt was more apt to oppose colonialism while Churchill is well known to have supported colonialism including the concept of the British Empire. Hitler knew of these things. He knew America was funding the Allies. So, he responded. American ships escorted arms shipments to Iceland and the British picked them up and sent them to England. By the fall of 1941, Hitler used German U-boats of submarines to attack American ships. Many U-boats shot at the USS Greer, hit the USS Kearny, and the USS Rueben James. Over 100 sailors were killed by these acts. Many Americans were angered. This was close to America declaring war on Germany. America by this time was a neutral nation, but that would change. FDR ordered the Navy to attack German U-boats on sights. By June 1941, the Nazis declared war on the Soviet Union via Operation Barbarossa. This was his greatest mistake since the Soviet Union would mobilize its factories and army to help end the Nazis. The Soviets used millions of its people to organize factories, soldiers, and other resources to respond plus defeat Nazi Germany. By November of 1941, America would be closer to have involvement in World War Two militarily.

America Enters the War

America came into World War II after Japan’s attack in America. It started by December of 1941. Japan and America were once allies during WWI. Later, things have changed. Japan expanded its militarist empire throughout Asia and the Pacific region. America had forces in Guam and the Philippines. Japan considered this reality a threat to its acquiring of natural resources. Yet, Japan still traded with America. The U.S. supplied Japan with oil and other resources too. Japan took over China and Vietnam (which was called Indo-China back then). President Roosevelt wanted this expansion to end. July 1940 was the time when FDR placed an embargo on naval and aviation supplies to Japan. These supplies included oil, iron ore, fuel, steel, and rubber. FDR made a bigger embargo after the Tripartite Pact was made in 1940. Japanese expansion slowed down. Yet, Japan continued to conquer more territories. General Hideki Tojo was the new Japanese prime minister in 1941. He was called the razor for his sharp mind. He wanted military expansion and keep America neutral. In the summer of 1941, both America and Japan were in serious negotiations in order to end disagreements. Japan wanted to expand while American leaders were opposed to this goal. Japan’s final demands were rejected by U.S. Secretary of State Cordell Hull in 1941.Tojo tried a final peace initiative, but failed. Tojo decided on fighting America via war. During the beginning of December, Japan would strike America in Hawaii. Japanese diplomats were in D.C. while Japanese ships headed for Pearl Harbor. Pearl Harbor had a major amount of U.S. naval ships. Tojo sent Vice Admiral Chuichi Nagumo to command the attack. He had 6 aircraft carriers, 360 airplanes, and many battleships plus cruisers. There were submarines there too. Japanese wanted a surprise attack in order to end American military forces in the Pacific. Japan wanted to expand into new territories to gain resources.


The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was brutal. American forces were surprised by the attacks. The USS Arizona was destroyed. The USS Arizona was blown up. Nearly 2,500 people were killed. 8 battleships were severely damaged, 3 destroyed left unusable, and 3 light cruisers were damaged. 160 aircraft were destroyed and 128 more were damaged. The U.S. battle fleet was out of commission for almost six months. The Japanese had access to get new raw materials in new territories. Much of the  U.S. aircraft carriers were out to sea in that time. The USS Arizona, the USS Oklahoma, and the USS Utah suffered harsh damage. Nagumo canceled a third wave of bombers. He came back home since he didn’t wanted an American counterstrike. The American Pacific Fleet would recover. As news about Pearl Harbor spread in America, FDR addressed Congress. He promoted unity to fight the Japanese. Nothing was the same. Most Americans soon desired to declare war. The Soviet Union now was in the Allied cause. Political infighting ended between isolationists and interventionists. The only people who opposed involvement in the war were pacifists, isolationists, and others. President Roosevelt gave a speech to promote the declaration of war. Congress supported the declaration of war in the House 388 to 1 and in the Senate unanimously. Later, Japan, Germany, and Italy declared war on America. Democrats and Republicans were in the war effort. Patriotism increased. Many Americans mobilized for the war effort. Some were in the military, some joined other organizations, and some funded the Red Cross. 16 million Americans joined the military in the war. The U.S. Army grew from about 1.4 million to 3 million people. The Navy grew from under 300,000 to more than 600,000 people.

Americans of every ethnicity and sex were involved in World War II. 300,000 Mexican Americans and 25,000 Native Americans were in integrated units. Nearly one million African Americans joined the military in mostly segregated units. They first worked in limited roles at first. Later, African Americans saw more active combat and served in the white combat units in some cases. This came after causalities mounted. Over 350,000 women served in World War II in a diversity of roles. In 1941, Congresswoman Edith Nourse Rogers introduced a bill formed the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps which would change into the WAC or the Women’s Army Corps in 1943. The WAC allowed women clerical workers, truck drivers, instructors, and lab technicians to work for the United States Army. Over 150,000 women served in the WAC. 15,000 women served overseas. 600 women received medals for their service. The Army Nurse Corps had 57,000 nurses. These nurses were in danger from the Axis in Europe and in the Pacific. Thousands of more women were in the Navy and Coast Guard auxiliaries. Industry would mobilize too. Roosevelt inspired American production of industry to be used in the war. The War Production Board or the WPB oversaw the conversion of peacetime industry into a war industry. Many agencies made materials to promote resources for the war. Civilian goods were regulated. Organized labor negotiated with the government too. All of these things were controlled with the help of the OWM or the Office of War Mobilization. Defense spending massively ended the Great Depression.

That spending was government money which proves the notion that government intervention can end recessions and depressions. A job came for every worker who wanted one. Production for military supplies increased. Henry Ford produced for America. American made production much more than Axis nations combined by 1944. American production was key in causing the Allied victory of World War II.

After Pearl Harbor, Japan moved as quickly as possible in the Pacific in order for them to control areas before a major American response. In December 1941, Douglas MacArthur struggled to secure the Philippines. The Philippines had little support. Japan destroyed half of the Army’s fighter planes in the region. Japan quickly controlled Guam. They also took Hong Kong and Wake Island. Japan attacked the Philippines by December 22, 1941. MacArthur used his forces to try to stop the Japanese. Yet, the Japanese had bigger numbers, so MacArthur and his forces were forced to retreat. The U.S. left Manila to the Bataan peninsula. They dug in for a siege on Corregidor. Americans suffered heavily and many had low rations. MacArthur left into Australia via evacuation by orders from the U.S. government. Other Americans remained behind. They held out until May of 1942. This was when 75,000 troops surrendered. They were taken as POWs to march 55 miles to the Bataan peninsula to go into a railway. They were forced to march 8 more miles. More than 7,000 Americans and Filipino troops died during the Bataan Death March. Japanese forces continued to get more lands in the Pacific. They got oil and rubber plies in the Southeast Asian region. By the summer of 1942, Japan thought about dominating the Indian Ocean, Australia, New Zealand, and the central Pacific. America had to act quickly to prevent that from happening.

FDR led a response against Japan. This was the Doolittle Raid. It involved a nighttime bombing raid from the USS Hornet aircraft carrier. It was led by Colonel James Doolittle. Doolittle led the raid of 16 B-25 bombings to attack Tokyo. The raid killed 50 Japanese people and damaged 100 buildings. The pilot flew to China where they crash landed. The Doolittle Raid was a small military gain, but it gave Americans more confidence. The Battle of Coral Sea was used to fight Japan. In May of 1942, Japanese moved to take Port Moresby in New Guinea. The Japanese wanted to attack Australia later on. They also wanted to protect its military bases at Rabual, New Guinea. America sent 2 aircraft carriers. They were the USS Lexington and the USS Yorktown along with support vessels to attack the Japanese forces. On May 7-8, 1948, American and Japanese forces fought each other via aircraft. The battle was a draw, but it further gave Americans forces confidence to continue. Aircraft carriers and planes were key weapons in WWII. Japan no longer attacked New Guinea in the future. 1942 saw the Allied response against the Axis Powers to exist in a higher level.

The Allies Winning

June 1942 was a time of the Allied forces were still responding and fighting the Axis Powers. The Axis Powers never had a long term strategy in their goals. Hitler wanted to rule Europe and murder Jewish people, Communists, socialists, plus non-white Germanic peoples. Mussolini wanted an empire from Italy to East Africa. Tojo wanted to dominate Western Pacific areas and Asia. The Allied forces had a more unified purpose. Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin wanted Nazi Germany defeated. America created tons of materials for the Allies, but the Allies fought Nazi U-Boats in order for the Allies to carry those supplies to the UK, the Soviet Union, and other Allied forces. German U-Boats sank more than 3,500 merchant ships and murdered thousands of Allied seamen in the Atlantic and Caribbean waters. By mid-1943, the Allied forces used radar to track and destroy German U-Boats. Long range bombers defeated many U-boats too. Germany attacked Russia in 1941. The Nazis send one army north to Leningrad and a second one east toward Moscow. They also had a third group going south to Stalingrad. The Nazis were deep in the Soviet Union. Millions of Soviet soldiers and civilians were killed. The Soviet resistance and the Russian winter ended the Nazi advance. Hitler also wanted to capture Stalingrad in order to get the rich oil fields of the Caucasus Mountains. The battle of Stalingrad was long and harsh. German troops had house by house fights. The Soviet troops counterattacked. The Nazis were trapped. Hitler resisted defeat at first. The remaining German troops surrendered on January 31, 1943. The battle of Stalingrad was a turning point in the war. It was the end of the Hitler advance in the east. Hitler never could dominate Europe. Nazi armies were in retreat and came back toward Germany. The Soviet Union was now in the offensive going westward into Berlin.

There was World War II battles in North Africa too. In the deserts and mountains of North Africa, Germany and Britain fought each other for territories. The British were fighting the Germans and the Italians since 1940. The Allied forces wanted North Africa. Stalin wanted America and Britain to fight the Nazis in France in order to cause a second European front (plus give Stalin more freedom to fight). FDR and Churchill wanted to go into North Africa at first instead. Both thought that they needed more time to go into France from the English Channel. FDR and Churchill wanted to get North Africa, so they could go into Italy. By October of 1942, the British won a major victory at El Alamein in Egypt. The British moved westward. Allied troops landed in Morocco and Algeria and started to move east toward key German position. The Allied invasion of North Africa was started by General Dwight Eisenhower, who was an American. German general Erwin Rommel on February of 1943 led his Afrika Korps against the Americans at the Kasserine Pass in Tunisia. He was called the Desert Fox. Rommel broke through the American lines. He wanted to go to the Allied supply base at Tebessa in Algeria. American soldiers stopped the Rommel assault. Rommel retreated after he lacked the supplies to carry onward. The Kasserine Pass victory inspired Americans. They or the Allies wanted aggressive officers and troops who were trained at desert fighting. Eisenhower put the American forces in North Africa under the command of George S. Patton Jr. He was a tank commander and an expert strategist. Patton’s forces went east. They had confidence. At the same time, the British forces went westward from Egypt. They trapped the Axis armies. The Nazis decreased in power at Tunisia. Rommel escaped and his army didn’t win. By May of 1943, German and Italian forces surrendered with about 240,000 troops.

By 1943, the Nazis were on the defensive. January of 1943 was the time when Roosevelt and Churchill met at Casablanca, Morocco to plan their next moves. They decided to bomb Germany and invade Italy. FDR wanted the Allies to only accept unconditional surrender. FDR didn’t want Hitler, Mussolini, or Tojo to have some negotiated peace. FDR wanted complete victory. The Allied forces invaded Italy. First, they came to Sicily since it had little U-Boats and it was an island. By July 1943, British and American armies came into Sicily. Eisenhower commanded the joint American-British forces to strike. The Axis escaped into the mainland of Italy. The 38 day campaign caused the Allies to control the western Mediterranean. It paved the way for the invasion of the Italian mainland. It also ended the rule of Benito Mussolini years later. Italy surrendered on September 3, 1943. 5 weeks later, Italy declared war on Germany. Hitler didn’t give up on Italy yet. Mussolini was rescued by a German airborne force from a mountaintop fortress. Hitler made him a puppet leader of northern Italy. In southern Italy, the Nazis fought against the Allies.

The invasion of Italy by the Allies wasn’t easy. Italy had massive mountains, heavy rains, and tough terrain. Allied forces would not completely defeat the Axis until 1944, but the Allied force would have ma

          Mario Balotelli has a lot of work to do on fitness - Nice boss Patrick Vieira      Cache   Translate Page      
ESPN FC's Julien Laurens and Gab Marcotti explain why Mario Balotelli's hopes of returning to Serie A this summer were dashed. Gab Marcotti says Federico Chiesa and Jack Bonaventura turned the tide for Italy in their draw with Poland, but the first half raised concerns. Mario Balotelli "still has a lot of work to do" to get back to peak fitness, Nice coach Patrick Vieira has said. Vieira had urged Nice to help Balotelli fulfill his desire to leave in the summer after the striker returned to preseason training late. L'Equipe reported that Balotelli had weighed 100 kilograms, 12kg above his optimal weight, when he returned. The 28-year-old missed Nice's first three matches of the season through suspension but played 75 minutes against Lyon before the international...

          John Bolton Threatens International Criminal Court Judges for Probing U.S. Torture in Afghanistan      Cache   Translate Page

President Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton, has threatened U.S. sanctions against International Criminal Court judges if they proceed with an investigation into alleged war crimes committed by U.S. troops in Afghanistan. In 2016 an ICC report accused the U.S. military of torturing at least 61 prisoners in Afghanistan during the ongoing war. The report also accused the CIA of subjecting at least 27 prisoners to torture, including rape, at CIA prison sites in Afghanistan, Poland, Romania and Lithuania. Bolton said in a speech at the Federalist Society Monday, “We will let the ICC die on its own. After all, for all intents and purposes, the ICC is already dead to us.” We get response from Jamil Dakwar, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Human Rights Program.

AMY GOODMAN: This is Democracy Now!Democracynow.org, The War and Peace Report. I’m Amy Goodman.
President Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton has threatened U.S. sanctions against International Criminal Court judges if they proceed with an investigation into alleged war crimes committed by U.S. troops in Afghanistan. In 2016, an ICC report accused the U.S. military of torturing at least 61 prisoners in Afghanistan during the ongoing war. The report also accused the CIA of subjecting at least 27 prisoners to torture, including rape, at CIA prison sites in Afghanistan, Poland, Romania and Lithuania. John Bolton made the comments in a speech at the Federalist Society Monday.
JOHN BOLTON: Today on the eve of September the 11th, I want to deliver a clear and unambiguous message on behalf of the president of the United States. The United States will use any means necessary to protect our citizens and those of our allies from unjust prosecutions by this illegitimate court. We will not cooperate with the ICC, we will provide no assistance to the ICC and we certainly will not join the ICC.
AUDIENCE: [Applause]
JOHN BOLTON: We will let the ICC die on its own. After all, for all intents and purposes, the ICC is already dead to us.
AMY GOODMAN: John Bolton also threatened to directly target judges at the ICC.
JOHN BOLTON: We will respond against the ICC and its personnel to the extent permitted by U.S. law. We will ban its judges and prosecutors from entering the United States, we will sanction their funds in the U.S. financial system and we will prosecute them in the U.S. criminal system. We will do the same for any company or state that assists an ICC investigation of Americans.
AMY GOODMAN: During his speech, John Bolton also announced that the Trump administration would close the Palestine Liberation Organization’s office in Washington in response to a Palestinian effort to push the ICC to investigate Israel for war crimes.
JOHN BOLTON: The Trump administration will not keep the office open when the Palestinians refuse to take steps to start direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel. The United States supports a direct and robust peace process, and we will not allow the ICC or any other organization to constrain Israel’s right to self-defense.
AMY GOODMAN: Palestinian diplomat Saeb Erekat criticized the move.
SAEB EREKAT: We were notified unfortunately that they will close the office and lower the Palestinian flag. This is an affirmation of the U.S. administration’s determination to continue its process of blackmail and extortion and undermining the peace process and the two-state solution. They have cut all humanitarian aid.
AMY GOODMAN: For more, we’re joined by Jamil Dakwar, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s human rights program. Jamil, welcome to Democracy Now! Can you talk about what John Bolton is saying, the significance of his Federalist Society speech yesterday, on the sanctioning of the ICC, saying he will not allow ICC, International Criminal Court judges into the United States, because they might be investigating the United States and Israel for possible war crimes?
JAMIL DAKWAR: Unprecedented attack on the rule of law. This is unheard of, that we have a government and a country that has committed acts of torture in another country, and the country itself, the United States, failed to hold any official accountable for acts of torture by the CIA, by the U.S. military, during the armed conflict in Afghanistan. And that happened during the Bush years and then Obama administration failed to take the comprehensive, thorough investigation into those acts and said, “We will look forward, not backward.”
And now we’re seeing the Trump administration doubling down on their assault on international law and human rights and impunity and fighting impunity by saying we will now go against the same body that is a last resort for victims of torture, that is the only international institution recognized as the one that is supposed to investigate and prosecute war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. And the Trump administration is saying, “We will be treating your judges and prosecutors like drug traffickers, like war criminals,” instead of admitting that there was a failure in holding officials accountable.
So John Bolton basically is the same John Bolton he was when he was in the Bush administration. He was the same one. He made destroying the court a lifetime project and goal. The difference now, he is in the place where he can do more than what he was doing in the Bush years. So it is a very dangerous attack on the international body where 123 countries are members—many of them are close U.S. allies, particularly in Europe—that is supposed to defend the independence of this body, and yet we see John Bolton perhaps wants to score points with the political base, people who are supporting Trump in the U.S. by invoking distorted and misinformation about the fact that the court is likely to investigate crimes that actually do not exist under the statute, under the law of the ICC.
So we’re in a very—the tipping point where the administration is basically saying, “We’re going to have a frontal attack on judges and prosecutors and personnel.” By the way, there is no legal theory to support that. I don’t understand what is it that, how is it that they would be prosecuting judges for the mere fact of conducting their job and responsibility under international treaty that is recognized, again, and ratified by 123 countries.
What is also concerning and very dangerous is that the threat is not just against the judges and the prosecutors and the personnel of the court, but it’s also against any state or party that is supposed to or willing to assist the ICC in its investigation of U.S. war crimes in Afghanistan. Lithuania, Romania, and Poland—these are the three countries where the CIA had black sites where people were tortured. And that means that they are opening, they are sending this threat to anyone, virtually anyone who would be an a position to assist the ICC. Does that include lawyers? Does that include individuals, organizations here in the United States? Lawyers who represented torture victims, including us at the ACLU? Where does that go? What is it that the Trump administration wants to do?
But ultimately, they are seeing that the ICC is about to open a full investigation into torture in Afghanistan. As a report said, this investigation is not only against the United States. It is the United States and Afghan forces, Taliban forces who were part of the armed conflict in Afghanistan. What makes it so important and significant here is that the United States is the country that has the longest tradition of upholding the rule of law and having independent investigative bodies and judiciary to investigate acts of torture when they occur, and yet it failed to do so. That is why the ICC is stepping in.
The ICC is not stepping in just for the sake of how Bolton put it, just to undermine U.S. sovereignty. This is really nonsense. They are stepping in because we failed—the United States failed to uphold the rule of law. It failed to investigate acts of torture that were well-documented by the Senate torture report that was published or at least partially declassified in December 2014.
So we are in a position where we see an escalation in attack on international bodies. This is the same administration that withdrew from the Human Rights Council. This is the same administration that is now changing the rules of engagement with regard to the use of targeted killings. This is the same administration that is pulling out of international treaties, including the issue like the Paris Accord, which you talked about in the previous segment.
So we are very concerned about that, but I think we also need to put it into perspective. This is the same Trump administration that has an abysmal record of human rights here in the United States and is trying to encourage other countries to follow its pattern, the pattern of disregarding a court of law, the rule of law, disregarding international law and basically saying that there are certain countries that are above international law, that they should enjoy immunity, they should not be prosecuted or investigated.
The United States after all is the one that actually conducted these operations, military operations, intelligence operations, that were involving torture and prolonged detention of detainees in Afghanistan. And that is why I think we ought to step back and look at what is it and not buy into the false misinformation that is being spread by John Bolton with no basis in U.S. law to threaten prosecutors and judges and so forth.

Mario Balotelli "still has a lot of work to do" to get back to peak fitness, Nice coach Patrick Vieira has said. Vieira had urged Nice to help Balotelli fulfill his desire to leave in the summer after the striker returned to preseason training late.

          The Worlds of Arthur Szyk, thru Dec 14      Cache   Translate Page      
Auditorium installation of high-resolution images of select collection items.

Acquired by The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life in 2017 thanks to an unprecedented gift from Taube Philanthropies, the most significant collection of works by Arthur Szyk (Łódź, Poland, 1894 – New Canaan, Connecticut, 1951) is now available to the world in a public institution for the first time as the Taube Family Arthur Szyk Collection.

Born into a middle-class Polish Jewish family, Szyk lived a life framed by two world wars and the rise of totalitarianism in Europe. A refugee, he ultimately settled in the United States in 1940. Much of his work centered on these experiences. As a miniature artist and political caricaturist, he used motifs drawn from the Bible, history, politics, and culture to pair extraordinary craftsmanship with searing commentary on a diverse range of subjects including Judaism, the American War of Independence, the Second World War, the Holocaust, and the founding of the State of Israel.

The hundreds of artworks, sketches, and painstakingly assembled illustrated books, journals, archival documents, photographs, exhibition catalogs, and memorabilia that comprise this multi-faceted collection are in the process of being examined and catalogued so that they can be made available for research, exhibition, loan, and publication. The current display of high-resolution images of select collection items in the Auditorium of The Magnes presents the public with an unprecedented insight in the many worlds of Arthur Szyk.
          Project “Holy Land”, thru Dec 14      Cache   Translate Page      
For nearly two decades, Yaakov (Jacob) Benor-Kalter (1897-1969) traversed the Old City of Jerusalem, documenting renowned historical monuments, ambiguous subjects in familiar alleyways, and scores of “new Jews” building a new homeland. Benor-Kalter’s photographs smoothly oscillate between two worlds, and two Holy Lands, with one lens.

After immigrating from Poland to the British Mandate of Palestine, Benor-Kalter soon found work as a photographer and graphic designer, employed by both the British government and several Zionist organizations. His photographs, taken between 1923 and 1940, established a new visual record, providing a romanticized glimpse into the British colonial endeavor while offering a contemporary view of the plans to create a modern Jewish State in the region.

This exhibition presents a complete photograph portfolio and a selection of postcards featuring some of Benor-Kalter’s most captivating images.

Juncker: EU Will Send Additional 10,000 Guards to Borders
12 September 2018
BBC World Service

The EU plans to send 10,000 more border guards to tackle unlawful immigration by 2020, the European Commission's president Jean-Claude Juncker said in his annual state of the union address.

He called for more solidarity, rather than "ad-hoc solutions" for people on migrant ships.

His speech also tackled the region's other burning issues - populism, terrorism and Brexit.

This is Mr Juncker's last 12 months in the role.

He also proposed a new Africa-Europe alliance, based on co-operation rather than charity, leading to a continent-to-continent free trade agreement.

He recommended that the euro be used more strategically as the biggest currency after the dollar.

And he called for strong leadership on Brexit. "The United Kingdom will never be an ordinary third country for us," he said.

The next elections to the European parliament are expected to be held in late May next year.

Where was the passion?

Analysis by Katya Adler, BBC Europe editor

This was Jean-Claude Juncker's final speech as European Commission president, a nod to his legacy.

He was clearly keen to pat himself on the back where he could. His key message: Europe is going in the right direction (though we can't be complacent). But where was the passion? Public opinion polls across Europe show people more in favour of the EU than they have been in recent years but - and this is a hugely important but - they're also more sympathetic towards populist parties, which are often nationalist and Eurosceptic in nature.

These parties tend to win favour among voters because their message is that they - unlike traditional parties, and unlike what they call remote technocrats in Brussels - are listening to people's concerns and care deeply about social issues.

Populist parties are expected to do very well in next year's elections for the European Parliament. Mr Juncker said little today to change that by persuading disenchanted voters.

In his speech, Jean Claude Juncker also made a notably controversial proposal to abolish EU member countries' vetoes on certain tax and foreign policy issues. This is likely to be pounced on by critics of the EU who accuse it of being an undemocratic institution.

Mr Juncker said the EU needed to be secure from the many threats that faced it.

"We will not militarise the European Union. What we want is to become more autonomous and live up to our global responsibilities," he said.

"Only a strong and united Europe can protect our citizens against threats internal and external - from terrorism to climate change."

On migration

Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, currently employs 1,600 border guards across the EU, so the new figure is a substantial hike.

Mr Juncker committed to further developing the European Asylum Agency to offer more support to member states processing asylum seekers.

He stressed a need for legal routes for migration into Europe. "We need skilled migrants," he said.

From the start of Mr Juncker's mandate in 2014, migration has been a major crisis.

It has sparked a rise in populism that has seen power shifts in Italy, Austria, Hungary and Poland, with Sweden the latest country to register a rise in anti-immigration votes in an election.

On Wednesday morning, German Chancellor Angela Merkel told legislators in Berlin that illegal migration poses a greater threat to the cohesion of the European Union than the eurozone crisis.

German parliament is debating its government response to far-right demonstrations in recent weeks.

On Brexit

Mr Juncker offered some support to British Prime Minister Theresa May's Chequers plan, agreeing that the starting point for future partnership should be a free trade area between the EU and the UK.

Brexiteers discuss leadership challenge

He also emphasised the union's support for Ireland. "We want to find a creative solution that prevents a hard border in Northern Ireland. But we will equally be very outspoken should the British government walk away from its responsibilities under the Good Friday Agreement."

On terrorism

There will be "new rules to get terrorist content off the web within one hour".

Internet platforms will be required to develop new methods to police content but it is unclear what form those would take.

The written proposal states that net firms that fail to comply would face fines of up to 4% of their annual global turnover.

On Africa

He called it Europe's "twin continent" - a supportive nod to the African continent's attempts to build its own version of the EU.

He said the new Alliance for Sustainable Investment and Jobs between Europe and Africa would help create up to 10 million jobs there in the next five years.

"We will create framework that brings more private investment to Africa," he said, adding the EU External Investment Plan - launched two years ago - had already started the work.

BBC Africa correspondent Andrew Harding said Europe is increasingly emulating China's approach to Africa - focusing on trade and on partnerships rather than conflicts and charity. But Europe has some catching up to do, he added.

On populism

"We should embrace the kind of patriotism that is used for good, and never against others," he said. "We should reject the kind of exaggerated nationalism that projects hate and destroys all in its path. The kind of nationalism that points the finger at others instead of searching for ways to better live together."

Is Europe seeing a nationalist surge?

After the speech, the EU parliament voted to start disciplinary procedures against Hungary for breaching core democratic values.

On Tuesday, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said he would not respond to "blackmail".

The commission has already launched disciplinary proceedings against Poland over reforms it says challenge the rule of law.

On the economy

"Europe's economy has now grown for 21 consecutive quarters… Never have so many men and women - 239 million people - been in work in Europe," Mr Juncker said.

"Youth unemployment is at 14.8%. This is still too high a figure but is the lowest it has been since the year 2000."

On clock changes

"Clock-changing must stop," the EU Commission president said, announcing an end to EU laws insisting countries change their clocks twice a year. "Member States should themselves decide whether their citizens live in summer or winter time."

The next elections to the European parliament are expected to be held in late May next year.

          Kafka and the Doll      Cache   Translate Page      

Kafka and the doll is one of the best stories I’ve read. It reminds me so much of my Mom who was an expert at spinning a soothing story every time someone felt sad or hurt. I came across this story Reiner Stach’s book Kafka: The Years of Insight. It’s the last year of Franz Kafka’s life, and he’s fallen in love with Dora Diamant, a young girl who ran away from her family in Poland and now lives in Berlin. She’s half his age, but she’s the one who gives him the courage to leave Prague-something he’s been wanting to do for years-and she becomes the first and only woman he lives with. He gets to Berlin in the fall of 1923 and dies the following spring, but those last months are probably the happiest months of his life. Every afternoon, Kafka goes out for a walk in the park. Dora often accompanies him. One day, they run into a little girl in tears, sobbing her heart out. Kafka asks her what’s wrong, and she tells him that she’s lost her doll. He immediately starts inventing a story to explain what happened. `Your doll has gone off on a […]

          Poland worried by EU vote to censure Hungary      Cache   Translate Page      

Poland worried by EU vote to censure HungaryPoland on Wednesday said it was very worried by the European Parliament's rare decision to launch a procedure against Hungary for posing a "systemic threat" to the EU's founding values. The vote took the first steps under Article 7 of the European Union Treaty, known by some in Brussels as the "nuclear option", which could ultimately strip Hungary of its EU voting rights. Other EU governments could halt any further action, however, and Poland -- a fellow ex-communist state that is also facing an Article 7 procedure -- has warned it would do so.



           CMA CGM, Hapag to send import boxes right back to exporters in Mexico      Cache   Translate Page      
CMA CGM and Hapag-Lloyd have started offering 'reUse' container management services in Mexico. reUse is a container triangulation service for transporters made available on Avantida's online platform, and now for the first time in Mexico's container transport sector, reported Shipping Gazette.With reUse, transport companies can request the liner shipping company use an import container that has been unloaded and bring it straight to their export customer to get loaded. In so doing, they avoid waiting times at depots and terminals and eliminate unnecessary mileage, which provides the additional benefit of reducing CO2 emissions in addition to overall costs."Using an import container to go straight to your export customer without having to go back to the terminal is a refreshing advancement for planners and dispatchers. Being able to manage this on Avantida's platform makes this new way of planning even easier to adopt," said CMA CGM head of inland operations Latin America Kapil Garg."We are delighted to offer empty container re-use in Mexico. The Avantida platform will bring a new dimension to their planning strategies, optimising time on the road and reducing transportation costs. For us, we expect a similar structure and efficiency it already provides in Europe," said Hapag-Lloyd senior director Niklas Ohling.Over the past year Avantida has both expanded in existing markets and entered new ones, including Germany, France, Poland, Lithuania and now Mexico. The platform is available in 12 countries with 4,000 registered companies and an average of 1,600 transactions daily.

          Ancient Britons and the Republican dream      Cache   Translate Page      

Neal Ascherson's lecture from 1985 feels more relevant than ever.

Editor's note: openDemocracy's founder Anthony Barnett has a habit I have picked up of paraphrasing a wonderful quote from the Scottish writer Neal Ascherson: "it is not possible to build democratic socialism by using the institutions of the Ancient British state... in the way that it is not possible to induce a vulture to give milk". Anthony used this line in the article with which he launched Charter 88 in 1988, and he, and then I, have repeated versions of it ever since. However, whenever I've asked Anthony where Neal actually said this, he hasn't been able to remember, and when I idly Googled it, most responses were Anthony quoting it, rather than the primary source.

Recently, when writing a chapter on the constitution for our forthcoming e-book "New Thinking For the British Economy", I decided to spend some time finding the original source. It turned out to be from the 1985 Mackintosh Memorial Lecture at Edinburgh University and the full text is a wonderful piece of both analysis and rhetoric. Though delivered in the year I was born, much of it feels even more pertinent now. I asked Neal for permission to publish it here, which he has kindly granted. Enjoy. Adam Ramsay, oD-UK editor.

“The country is filled with anxiety and ill-feeling, and with the sense of a dishonoured public life”.

So writes Karl Miller, in the introduction to the latest anthology from the London Review of Books which he edits. It is a moral statement, placing in a moral category all that is now amiss with the economy, the political style and the distribution of power in the United Kingdom. As such, I take it to be fully in the tradition of John Mackintosh. One of his gifts, often disconcerting to his party colleagues, was his capacity to judge and speak as a citizen and not only as a politician. This implies a language which is not that of U-turns or of so-called “presentation”, but of right and wrong, health and sickness. The United Kingdom, and Scotland within that kingdom, is in a poor way, which is liable to grow in both senses poorer; but there is a strange paralysis of the political ingenuity which might alleviate the situation. As they said in Warsaw in 1981, “the Polish crisis is that nobody knows how to find a way out of it”. John Mackintosh was an Enlightenment man, certain that the power of rebellious reason could overcome. I know that he would have found our present-day fog of resignation the real dishonour of public life.

By using the phrase Ancient Britons in my title, I am suggesting that we live in an archaic political society. Its myth of origin is in many ways as fraudulent as the myth of an Ancient Britain served by all-wise Druids. It is the painful contradiction between this unreformed political structure and the rapid transformation of our social environment which is responsible for much of that “anxiety and ill-feeling”, and which lies at the root of economic dysfunction, mass unemployment and the growing antagonisms between society and the repressive power of the state. Perhaps it seems strange to write of the present Government as archaic, or an instrument of archaism. Mrs Thatcher is a moderniser, in her own terms, and her Government is anti-historical in at least two ways. She has severely cut state support for culture in all its aspects, from education as a whole through the British Council to the maintenance and development of the past through archaeology or conservation. Moreover, she has declared war on a number of institutions which she accuses of wishing to turn Britain into a museum, most prominently traditional trade unionism.

But in fact this leader’s call to modernity rests heavily upon appeals – often spurious – to the values of the past. Patrick Wright, in his book On Living in an Old Country, remarks: “The Falklands adventure made a new combination possible: this small war enabled Thatcher to draw up the legitimisingtraditions of the “nation” around a completely unameliorated ‘modernising’ monetarist programme. This new and charismatic style of legitimisation fused a valorisation of national tradition and identity with a policy and programme which is fundamentally destructive of the customary ways and values to which it appeals”.

Critical of some aspects of the past, Mrs Thatcher is all the more uncritical about the political heritage-above all, about the nature of the British State. Note the November 1985 Queen’s Speech, with its emphasis on the enforcement of public order and even more reduction of those few liberties still left to local government. There is a queer dialectic between the relaxation of economic controls and the dismantling of the Welfare State on one hand, and a striking increase in the repressive and centralising power of the State on the other, a dialectic which this Conservative Government has dramatised rather than initiated, for it was also beginning to operate under the 1970s Labour governments. It was this prime minister who articulated the pseudo-historical slogan of “Victorian values”. But harping on the theme of “national unity” (supposed to be an essential Victorian feature) is a nervous twanging practised in our times by all the main political parties. I would oppose to this a remark made recently in Le Monde by the sociologist Alain Touraine, who asked: “Should we not recognise the inevitable and even desirable existence of conflicts between the strategy of the state and the demands of public opinion? Instead of subjugating society to the state or the state to society, let us admit that it’s the nature of the western world to experience an ever growing separation between the state and civil society”. He goes on to deplore the absence in France of a demanding public opinion willing or capable to argue for this separation in the face of the State. We are not much better off in Britain.

I believe that the British State is to be categorised as an “ancien regime”. It is closer in spirit to the monarchy overthrown in 1789 than to the republican constitutions which followed in France and elsewhere in Europe. It is true that French Jacobin republicanism introduced – or perhaps reinforced-a rigid centralisation of state power which has some parallels in the extreme overcentralism of modern Britain. But it also established the doctrine of popular sovereignty, based on the notion of the rights of man, expressed in a constitution of supreme authority to which the citizen could – in theory – appeal over the heads even of the National Assembly. I am arguing here for a British version of republicanism, and it is my view that while Jacobin centralism is exceptional among republican projects, the principle of popular sovereignty and a written constitution is an almost universal element of definition.

Our Ancien Régime

We all know about the penalty Britain has paid for its economic priority – for being the first nation to experience an industrial revolu- tion. We understand much less well the penalties incurred by Britain’s – more properly, England’s – priority in political development, by the fact that England underwent in the 17th century the first modern revolution. The English Revolution, to put it crudely, simply transferred absolutism from the king to Parliament. One may talk about the doctrine of the Crown in Parliament: the reality is that the House of Commons still possesses an absolute, undivided sovereignty which no Republic, “unie et indivisible”, can match. In effect, no higher institution can overrule what the Commons may decide by the majority of one vote. There is no doctrine of popular sovereignty – the half-formed Scottish version of that doctrine vanished with the Union of Parliaments in 1707. There is no written constitution, as the supreme authority to which the subject can appeal. There is no way in which Parliament can share its absolute power, except by lending it as a loan revocable at any moment – a lesson we in Scotland learned during the devolution debates. Federation is unthinkable. It would entrench rights in a part of the United Kingdom which Parliament alone could not overrule. For the Druids of Westminster, charged with weeding the sacred grove, such an impious violation of the sovereignty of Parliament would bring the oak trees crashing to the ground-no doubt leading to crop failure, plague and Roman invasion as well.

Under this Ancient British regime, the subject is almost helpless before the huge extension of state power that has taken place since 1945 and which is still taking place. The idea that the subject has an effective recourse against the executive through his MP has long been a joke, which the introduction of various ombudsmen has only made richer. A proliferation of isolated tribunals only makes the absence of a coherent code of administrative law more glaring (another institution which would require a written constitution and falls under the Druid ban). The principle of official secrecy still renders the defence of civil rights (which strictly we do not enjoy, as they are not embodied in positive law) about as easy as the work of a jeweller under a 15-watt bulb.

How often these complaints have been lodged-by John Mackintosh, in particular! And yet the ancien regime persists, the weight of its inefficiency more crushing every year, almost untouched by Republican principle. In what sense is it “ours”? In Poland, Lech Walesa is one of many who have referred to the nation as a “house”. The image suggests a tenement, overcrowded and dilapidated no doubt, whose inhabitants none the less recognise a duty to hold together; not to quarrel irrevocably, but to co-operate in repairing the fabric. That is a usable metaphor for the value of national unity. But Britain as “nation” seems to me to present itself less as a house than as a temple-that sacred grove, indeed. We do not live inside this grove, but outside it; we approach it, perhaps tiptoe across its turf on suitably escorted occasions; we pay it reverence but we do not own it, we, the living. For this nation-grove belongs to the nation of myth which includes the dead ancestors. “They” are the major component of “we”.

We are dealing here with a concept of almost biological continuity which blatantly derives from the central principle of sanctified monarchy – the principle of hereditary succession. Applied to a whole society, it is a collectivism which submits the appeal of the individual in the present to a constitutional court of ghosts and skeletons – to the judgment of the past. It is no bad definition of the republican spirit to say that a Republic keeps the dead firmly in their place – not necessarily a dishonourable one, but certainly not a place of authority.

a Republic keeps the dead firmly in their place

It is an irony that a government so dedicated to laissez-faire and to private enterprise presides over a state regime whose ethos is so collectivist. Its creed of economic individualism has, in this sense, no effective institutional foundations. The historian Larry Siedentop has observed3 that “the liberalism of the British constitution has been an essentially pre-individualist liberalism”. Britain was scarcely touched by the great social-political conflicts of continental Europe, between monarch and people, between empire and nation, between the lay state and the universal Church, out of which emerged republics based on the codified rights OF the individual.

And yet we often decribe Britain as a middle-class democracy, and is not militant individualism the defining characteristic of a middle class? Well, often and in most places-and I would include Scotland among most places, here as in so many other areas closer to the model of a small, normal European nation. But in England this generalisation runs into severe difficulties. In the 1960s the group around the New Left Review drew attention to the limited social and political results of the 17th-century upheaval and suggested that England had not experienced a bourgeois revolution. This absence would go a long way to explain, within the Marxist schema, the inner weakness of the British Left and the peculiar difficulties of approaching the threshold of a proletarian revolution. Another way of attacking the problem is to note the extent to which the English middle class, especially the later industrial bourgeoisie, adopted aristocratic values which hindered the development of that confidence and dynamism thought proper to their class.

In a remarkable article published eight years ago in The Spectator, Siedentop asked why the British middle classes had ceased to be the carriers of an individualist concept of society. Tocqueville had warned of the plight of a society which had lost the advantages of the aristocratic condition without gaining the advantages of the democratic condition. Siedentop wrote: “The very openness of British society in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries led . . . to the middle classes assuming quasi-aristocratic attitudes and accepting a more corporate conception of society . . . There followed a partial collapse or failure of middle-class values and ideology which is basic to an understanding of the condition of Britain today. It is the chief reason why the individualist movement here has been contained, if not reversed”.

He remarked that “the weakness of the individualist drive – what Marxists would call bourgeois ideology – is costing Britain dear. For that is the reason why Britain has not developed the impulse which might be expected from the wider spread of education, income and opportunity”.

It is another of those contradictions in which Thatcherism seems so rich that the individualist drive is being frantically signalled forward with whistles and green lights precisely at the moment when that “wider spread” of education, opportunity and income has been stopped dead in its tracks and even induced to move some way backwards. So far, I do not see much response to green lights in the manufacturing sector, although the City of London is very appreciative. Travelling as a journalist, I frequently meet British salesmen and businessmen abroad. Their appetite for commerce and competition is still curiously weak. I look for contrast to – for example – West German businessmen I know, who show every sign of actually enjoying buying and selling. The activity which brings them profit also brings them pleasure. They admit this quite shamelessly. But captains of British industry suggest that they carry out their thankless duty of manufacture and commerce for the sake of the nation, a sort of defensive self-identification as public servants in private clothing! The corporate spirit of aristocracy again. The capitalist tiger prefers to register himself as the regimental mascot- sheep.

The point is this. The historic weakness of the English middle class proceeds from exactly that seventeenth-century compromise from which the British constitution proceeds. The middle class identifies with the ancien régime and is unable to see the advantages of overthrowing it and advancing to a condition of politically-guaranteed individualism. In return, however, the archaic nature of our State arrangements and the corporate ethic which they encourage repress bourgeois initiative at every turn. A recent poll in the Mail on Sunday reported that 48 per cent of the sample considered themselves not to be ambitious. I would not go as far as an American psychology textbook I picked up many years ago, which stated in its first chapter: “Absence of the competitive instinct must be considered the primary neurosis.” All the same, such a degree of resignation in a western capitalist society in the 1980sis very startling indeed.

Let me sum this topic up with a statement which is already becoming worn by use-or perhaps by my own over-use of it in the past few years. It is commonly and comfortingly said that there is nothing basically wrong with British institutions-“the finest in the world”--but that they are not working well at present because the economy is in such a bad state. The reverse is true. The reason that the British economy does not work is that British institutions are in terminal decay.

Trapped in History

The Druids are determined that we shall not perceive this. I have spoken of the cult of the Ancient British grove, in which the dead are not “they” but part of “we”. What has come down to the present is defined as “heritage”, imposing duties as well as conferring privileges, an essential component of national and personal identity. It was the sharp ear of Patrick Wright which picked up the television commentator at the raising of the Mary Rose as he observed that ‘‘we had not seen her for over 400 years . . .”

Here is the notion of a historical continuum. Now, I do not deny that a cult of history, a sense of continuum, can be invigorating. I know Poland too well to deny it. Polish nationalism and radicalism have always been restorative. In 1863, the Russian exile Alexander Herzen tried in vain to bring into a common front the Russian and the Polish enemies of the Tsar. He concluded: “The ideal of the Poles was behind them; they strove towards their past from which they had been cut off by violence and which was the only starting-point from which they could advance again. They had masses of holy relics, while we had empty cradles”.

Within the sealed time-capsule of Polish experience, mere linear time becomes distorted. The poetic dramas of the early nineteenth century have a utility and relevance as direct as that of a telephone directory, for Poland’s plight has not changed its essential shape since then, and the cast of characters spawned by that plight change only in the way that the names of actors change as they succeed to a part. Events which are important appear to have happened more recently than less significant ones. Some events which ruptured the sealed continuum are agreed not to have taken place at all. For most of my life, the Royal Castle at Warsaw has been a hole in the ground. Now, however, the guide who takes you round the minutely-reproduced Castle will point across a courtyard and draw your attention to “the only Renaissance window which survived the baroque reconstruction”. The window has been there all the time, the Castle has been there all the time, but some malign disturbance of the ether made it for a while impossible to perceive.

Conservatism, in the literal sense, can go no further than this. This is not to say that Polish political aims are reactionary, but that-as with Solidarity-they wish to restore relics that are familiar: independence, social justice, civil liberty, the limiting of state power. The Russian cradle, filled in 1917, is empty again. But if another child is ever laid there, its face will be entirely new.

English manipulation of history is quite different. Here, time is linear to a perfectly oppressive degree. We are gazing from the terrace of a country house down carefully-landscaped perspectives of barbered lawns and positioned trees. The eye is masterfully led down a vista of elements (this battle, that cabinet) chosen to combine with one another into a single artistic experience. You could say: “Prune back that Reform bush and make the Tolpuddlia bed twice as big”. But you would feel a bit of a vandal.

I’m exaggerating, of course. There is vigorous argument among English gardeners, and items of history are being repositioned all the time. But there is still an assumption that “our” (in quotes) history can only have one focal point, one perspective. In France, by contrast, it is thought evident that French history as perceived by a Communist, by a middle-of-the-road Republican and by a Catholic monarchist will be a matter of three quite different gardens. This is emphatically not Druidic thinking. But there is another contrast to English historical landscaping, and that is the Scottish awareness of Scottish history. It isn’t an insult to the enormous pioneering work of historians here in the last 40 years to suggest that the public perception of history in Scotland remains chaotic. Time is not generally used to enforce perspective, and instead there is a scrapbook of highly coloured, often bloody scenes or tableaux whose sequence or relation to one another is obscure. But there is a source of energy in this dislocation. As in Poland, what is more intense appears to be in some way nearer: its impact is not diminished by informed distancing. I take for example the tableau of the murder of Archibishop Sharp on Magus Muir which has so powerfully seized the imagination of Scottish writers. Innocent of context, stripped of explanation, this murder takes place always now, in our Scotland. The contorted face of Hackston who has bungled the killing and is now urging his horse to stamp on Sharp’s head is your face and my face; when the screaming is over and they open Sharp’s little snuffbox to find his familiar, we all hear distinctly in the silence the sound of the bumble- bee escaping from the box and spiralling away across the heather. Walter Scott tried to play the Druid, to organise scenes like these into a mere heritage and say that they were over. But he did not really succeed, and the ferocity latent-occasionally patent-in Scottish society shows they are not over.

The Orthodoxy of Labour

I have tried to outline some of the ways in which a particularly English historiography and concept of the continuous nation has been used to legitimise the ancien régime--the unreformed British State-and to discourage republican ideas. But of course the question is not just how to describe this but how to change it, and here we come up against a great curiosity. Why is it that the idea of radical constitutional reform appeals only to the centre of British politics? (It’s no mystery why it appeals to nationalist movements in Scotland or Wales.) The Social Democrats have proposed sweeping changes; the Liberals have for many years supported proportional representation and constitutional reform, including federalism. Both parties in the Alliance have published versions of that formula which attribute economic failure to the decay of institutions. The curiosity is that the Labour Party remain, in their overwhelming majority, hostile to this approach. We ought to remember, once again, John Mackintosh’s lonely struggle to persuade his Party to think, in the wider sense, politically. But the orthodoxy of Labour, transmitted down the Tribunite line from Bevan to Foot, has remained a sort of debased economic Jacobinism. One day, the unreformed electoral system will deliver another huge Labour majority in Parliament, which will use centralised state power to redistribute wealth. This remains the dream. It would be unfair not to mention some recent, if marginal changes of emphasis, like Labour’s new regional policy which would transfer some responsibility for economic growth to local initiative. But Labour are not a republican party. Labour still believe that they can achieve their ends through the existing State, through existing institutions.

Labour’s outlook remains corporatist rather than individualist. Siedentop, to quote his Spectatorarticle again, blames the absence of a powerful middle-class ethic. He writes: “Just as the French bourgeoisie acquiesced during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in the growth of centralised royal power, in order to destroy their local aristocratic oppressors, so the British working class has acquiesced in the centralisation of power during the twentieth century in order to destroy what it sees as social privilege – the middle class masquerading as an aristocracy”.

One could stop to argue about the wisdom of a policy of class defence, in a period when working people are so intensely concerned with their individual rather than their collective destinies. But I am more interested in the consequences of Labour’s fatal fascination with the instruments of actually-existing Britain. The consequences can be implied by stating this proposition, which is fundamental: it is not possible to build democratic socialism by using the institutions of the Ancient British state. Under that I include the present doctrine of sovereignty, Parliament, the electoral system, the Civil Service – the whole gaudy old heritage. It is not possible, in the way that it is not possible to induce a vulture to give milk. The British régime is designed to preserve privilege, to prevent the effective distribution of power and to smother the individual who counterposes his own interests to the collective interest of the mythic nation. It is democratic in the sense that the Powderhall Sprint is democratic; it is socialist in the sense that the National Coal Board is socialist.

it is not possible to build democratic socialism by using the institutions of the Ancient British state. Under that I include the present doctrine of sovereignty, Parliament, the electoral system, the Civil Service – the whole gaudy old heritage. It is not possible, in the way that it is not possible to induce a vulture to give milk.

The Jacobins themselves knew that the Revolution required new institutions. Marxism’s warnings about the problems of a socialist movement confronted with the state apparatus of the previous régime have stood up well-tragically well-to experience. But Labour appear still to believe that the British Parliament under George II could have composed the American Constitution and applied it to the Thirteen Colonies.

So it appears that in fact it is precisely Labour, out of all the British parties, which stands to gain most from constitutional change, but which is most stoutly opposed to it – dismissing it, indeed, as a middle-class irrelevance. Instead, Labourism makes an effort to claim the heritage for itself, and compete with the Tories as the party of “the nation”. This is not only absolutely unhistorical, in a multinational state like the United Kingdom. It is doomed to failure even as a tactic, for this is a game which the Tories and the regime itself will always win. Patrick Wright’ suggests that Labour’s failure to appropriate the “nation” is inevitable “not least because the nation to which Thatcher appeals so successfully is articulated . . . against post-war statist reform. While actually increasing the powers of the centralised state, this Conservatism is also thriving on widespread disillusion with the bureaucratic corporatism of the welfare state”. The nation or national interest to which Labour appeals, Wright goes on, is perceived as grey, inhuman and undignified. “Starkly opposed to this, ‘the nation’ to which Thatcher has learned to appeal is full of adventure, grandeur, ideas of freedom, ceremony and conscripted memories (of childhood or war, for example) . . . There are indeed ‘two nations’ in the symbolism of Thatcher’s Britain, but these are not the two nations of habitual definition: the division is not so much between rich and poor or North and South, but rather between the grand . . . symbolism of Empire and War on one hand and the bureaucratic imagery of the welfare state on the other”.

In whose name, then, should a mass party of the Left speak in Britain of the 1980s? Not in the name of the nation, but not in the name of one class either. How about in the name of the people? It is not a nation or a class which demands Liberty, Equality, Fraternity, but the living – all the living – inhabitants of a definite country at a definite moment: now.

It is not the last king or queen who should be beheaded. It is the last Druid whose brains should be knocked out with the last volume of Walter Bagehot.

It is for the Left, above all, to develop this notion of a “people”, free of British national mythology but also free of a false, defensive collectivism which threatens to become part of that mythology. Democratic socialism is about co-operation and community. But that can now only be reached by an indirect route. Labour cannot get there by syndical and class struggle alone; it must become the party of individual liberty as well, fighting for the rights of the citizen, for his power to challenge the bureaucracy, for institutions which enfranchise him – whether these are administrative courts or local pressure groups or community co-operatives. A war against the state is waiting to be fought by a mass “freedom party” of the Left. Its battles should be for a written constitution, for the doctrine of popular sovereignty, for a just electoral law based on proportional representation, for a code of administrative law and a constitutional court, for a sweeping reform of Parliament and its proceedings, for the option of federal status for those parts of the United Kingdom that wish it, for an entrenched grant of far greater competences to local authorities including the power to levy variable rates of taxation, for the demolition of the English legal professions and their replacement by a judicial system in which justice is affordable and judges come from all classes and age groups . . . For the abolition of the monarchy? I hold this to be – in Reformation language – “a thing indifferent”. If the cult of the archaic nation is demolished, the monarchy – no longer called upon to sanctify it – will reduce to the scale of a harmless focus of affection and newspaper scuttlebutt. It is not the last king or queen who should be beheaded. It is the last Druid whose brains should be knocked out with the last volume of Walter Bagehot.

We are living in an increasingly airless room. Hope has been pumped out of it, and replaced by a scent of decay, by Karl Miller’s “anxiety and ill-feeling and . . . sense of a dishonoured public life”. If unreformed State power goes on expanding, and popular misery deepens, convul- sions and unconsciousness will ensue. We must escape, or at least kick open the windows. We must transfer power to the people, but that will remain a dead political cliche until Labour, especially, understand that this transfer cannot now be achieved by the old, direct methods of syndical and class struggle, still less by a Labour government acting through the British State. This society requires drastic and immediate constitutional change. And the simplest way of justifying that change is to say that it would allow people, at last, to fight for themselves.

          Orange Poland begins outdoor 5G trials, expands FTTH footprint      Cache   Translate Page      
Polish fixed and mobile operator Orange Polska has begun outdoor trials of 5G equipment in conjunction with Huawei. The two firms say they achieved download rates of 1.8Gbps in a lab setting, while the first tests in an urban environment, at greater distances, resulted in speeds of 1.5Gbps, which Orange says is almost double what can be provided on its existing 4G LTE-A network. The outdoor trials are being conducted using a single transmitter in the city of Gliwice, using 100MHz of spectrum in the 3.5GHz band. Jean-Francois Fallacher, CEO of Orange Poland, commented: ‘We’re coming outside of the laboratory to check how the prepared solutions work “in battle”. The tests carried out in Gliwice allow us to analyse how they function in real life urban conditions. The implementation of 5G will bring a qualitative change. It will not only benefit individual users, but also industry or, more broadly, the entire economy. In order to launch a new generation of mobile network efficiently and effectively, we need clear rules, arranging matters such as frequencies, electromagnetic standards, [and] the investment process. We are looking forward to discussions with the government and telecom authority regarding the regulation of these issues.’ Separately, Orange has expanded its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) coverage via a network leasing arrangement with smaller FTTH provider Nextera. The agreement will give Orange access to Nextera infrastructure passing some 450,000 homes by 2020, mainly in suburban and semi-rural areas. Orange hopes to cover five million premises with FTTH networks by 2020, both using its own infrastructure and via wholesale agreements such as the one with Nextera.

Germany and Russia: The Long Dance

Perhaps this time is different.

By George Friedman


Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel met last weekend at Meseberg, the guesthouse of the German federal government. Expectations for the meeting, on both sides, were rightfully low. But the meeting comes at a time when both the Germans and Russians are redefining their place in the international system, which for them also means redefining their own relationship. In the 20th century, shifts in the Russo-German relationship tended to have profound consequences for Europe. It’s worth considering what it could mean this time.

Contemporary Europe originates in the early 1990s when the Soviet Union collapsed and the Maastricht Treaty creating the European Union went into effect. For the Germans, these two events meant that their primary interest was no longer the defense of Germany against the Soviet Union, and therefore their primary partner in said defense, the United States, was no longer central. Instead, Germany’s immediate problem was the reintegration of the former German Democratic Republic. Longer term, the focus was on turning the European Economic Community into more than a free trade zone and using the new tools of solidarity to ensure German economic interests. Given the paucity of strategic threats, Germany did not require a coherent security strategy beyond maintaining the EU, and its military capabilities, substantial during the Cold War, atrophied.

Germany’s relationship with Russia was primarily about access to Russian energy supplies. Since its founding, Germany has needed an industrial plant that was much larger than domestic consumption could support. Its industry allowed the German economy to surge and preserved social stability. Imperial Germany competed with the British Empire, selling to Russia, Austria-Hungary and southern Europe and buying natural resources from them. Nazi Germany attempted to create a similar structure, imposed by military force. Contemporary Germany remains dependent on imports of resources and exports of goods. The European Union is one leg of its strategy, and Russia has been another.

In the first decade after the Soviet collapse, Russia did not have a coherent strategy. It was, as a nation, in a state of shock, having freed itself from Soviet structures but having not yet built a new edifice. On the one hand, it needed economic relations with the rest of Europe. On the other hand, it needed to secure itself against foreign threats. The Russians, like the Soviets, pursued a strategy of strategic depth. They sought a neutral or pro-Russia buffer to the west – consisting of the Baltic states, Belarus and Ukraine – and to the south in the North Caucasus.

The encroachment of NATO into Russia’s western buffer and the South Caucasus created a strategic crisis for Russia. The development of a pro-Western government in Ukraine in 2014 was particularly alarming. To make matters worse, oil prices plummeted later in the year – a devastating development for Russia’s economy, which still relies on exports of raw materials. Russia’s strategic and economic position seemed to be unraveling.

The foundation of German national strategy has not quite unraveled, but it’s no longer as secure as it was. The EU is fragmenting along national and class lines. It remains Germany’s primary market for exports, but confidence that this will be permanent has been shaken. Now it is at odds with the United States, which is demanding more defense expenditure from Germany, along with the unstated demand that Germany take more risk alongside the United States. But the Germans have no interest in joining the U.S. in the Middle East, the South China Sea or North Korea.

Germany and Russia, then, both have problems with the global hegemon. These problems precede the Donald Trump administration and go deeper than politics and diplomacy. For Germany, the U.S. constantly wants to divert it from its primary interest (the EU) and creates regional friction – with Russia, for example. And for Russia, the Americans are extending their sphere of influence, particularly in Eastern Europe and the Baltics, with no visible motive except to threaten Russia’s security.

At the same time, Germany and Russia see potential benefits from cooperation. Germany’s economic and regional interests require oil and gas, which Russia has. Russia’s economic development requires foreign investment and technology, which Germany has. This is familiar ground. Germany and Russia explored cooperation between 1871 and 1914. Between the two world wars, Russia provided Germany with military assistance, allowing it to evade the Treaty of Versailles. From 1939 to 1941, they were bound by treaty and jointly participated in the invasion of Poland. Of course, both periods ended disastrously. In World War I, Imperial Germany devastated Imperial Russia. Similarly, despite the military assistance (the Treaty of Rapallo) and the 1939 Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact, Germany invaded Russia and brutalized it again during World War II. American power in West Germany helped avert similar bloodshed during the Cold War.

In short, the history of Russo-German relations since Germany’s unification in 1871 has consisted of tentative attempts at cooperation followed by catastrophic wars and near-wars. Neither country has forgotten that, but the temptation to try again, on the assumption that this time is different, is powerful. If history is consistent, then the U.S. is indispensable. It was U.S. lend-lease and the invasion on the western front that enabled the Soviets to defeat Germany in World War II. It was the U.S. that guaranteed West Germany’s security in the Cold War. Each has been, in a real sense, saved from the other by the Americans.

Of course, if this time really is different, then forming an understanding and pushing the U.S. out of the equation makes sense. But if it remains the case, as it was during the 20th century, that Russia needs buffers to its west, and Germany needs markets and resources under its control, then neither side really has a solid basis for cooperation. In that case, this looks like 1939, when the two sides signed a pact that they knew the other would betray, with the expectation that they would betray first, when the time was right. An alliance of those thinking themselves more clever than the other doesn’t usually end well.

But perhaps this time is different.
          HAS THE EMERGING-ECONOMY CRISIS CYCLE ENDED? / PROJECT SYNDICATE      Cache   Translate Page      

Has the Emerging-Economy Crisis Cycle Ended?

José Antonio Ocampo

turkey currency exchange lira crisis dollar

BOGOTÁ – Crises are nothing new for emerging economies, which have repeated the same patterns again and again, with often-devastating results. But have those patterns finally been broken?

Emerging economies have experienced boom-bust cycles in external financing for decades. The boom phase generates current-account, fiscal, and private-sector deficits – outcomes that are compounded by increases in domestic financing. Eventually, however, high debt levels lead to a loss of confidence and sharp cuts in external financing – a so-called sudden stop – producing balance-of-payments, fiscal, and financial crises.

Then, contagion sets in, as increasingly risk-averse investors, particularly short-term investors from developed-country markets, begin to withdraw funds from other countries to cover losses they incurred in the economies where the crises originated. With that, the crises spill across borders, affecting whole regions or even the entire class of emerging economies.

That is what happened in Latin America in the 1980s, when Mexico’s moratorium on external debt servicing in August 1982 sparked a region-wide debt crisis. The same thing occurred in East Asia in the 1990s: the crisis began in Thailand in July 1997 with the collapse of the baht, and quickly spread to other East Asian countries. It became a broad-based emerging-economy crisis in August 1998, after Russia imposed a moratorium on payments by commercial banks to foreign creditors.

The 2008 crisis played out a bit differently. It began in the developed world, with the fall of the US investment bank Lehman Brothers that September, and initially spread to emerging economies. But, after just over a year, the bust became a boom, as expansionary monetary policies in the developed world drove yield-seeking investors toward emerging markets.

The question that is now being hotly debated is whether this financing boom planted the seeds of a new emerging-economy crisis. We may soon learn the answer. After all, as history shows, all it takes is for one country to break down. Today, that country could be Turkey.

Last week, the Turkish lira plummeted, triggering the depreciation of more currencies, especially those of South Africa and Argentina, though all floating Latin American currencies also faced depreciation, as did those of the Czech Republic, Poland, Russia, and several East Asian countries, including China. Risk premia increased, and equity prices fell.

It is impossible to say for sure whether a new broad-based crisis is in the offing. After all, it would have been difficult to predict that the 1982 Mexican moratorium and the 1997 collapse of the baht would generate broad-based, protracted crises, or that the 2008 crisis would only briefly sweep up the emerging economies.

Nonetheless, there are reasons to think that old patterns may no longer apply. At its peak, during the week of August 8-15, the currencies of Argentina, South Africa, and Turkey depreciated by 8-14% against the US dollar. Yet the currencies of other emerging economies depreciated by no more than 4%.

This suggests that contagion is not taking hold as easily as it has in the past, and that broad-based sudden stops may be less likely. Even the most affected economies were able to limit the fallout of their currency collapses, with the Turkish authorities’ swift response to the lira collapse and the Argentinian central bank’s sharp interest-rate hikes having partly calmed markets.

This seems to reflect a new resilience to contagion that has formed over the last ten years or so. Emerging economies’ external financing was barely affected by the eurozone crisis, which peaked in 2011-2012, or the US Federal Reserve’s initial announcement, in 2013, that it would roll back its expansionary monetary policies. Even the commodity-price drop of 2014, which weakened the currencies of several commodity-exporting economies, brought no sudden stop in external financing. And the wave of capital flight from China in 2015 and early 2016 produced no broad-based effects.

This may be because investors are now taking a more nuanced approach to their analyses of country risk. Instead of painting all emerging economies with the same brush, they are accounting for each country’s economic fundamentals, domestic political stability, and relationships with others (for example, Turkey’s current diplomatic tensions with the United States).

So, judging by the limited contagion from the Turkish crisis, and from other recent episodes, it seems that old patterns may no longer obtain. But that does not mean that emerging economies are in the clear. On the contrary, they still have plenty to worry about, not least rising protectionist sentiment and trade tensions among major global powers. Smart policies, together with an improved global financial safety net from the International Monetary Fund, therefore remain of the utmost importance.

          Warga Polandia Persenjatai Kelompok Papua Merdeka      Cache   Translate Page      

BINTANGNEWS.com – Pemerintah Polandia melalui Kedutaan Besar-nya di Jakarta tidak menanggapi permintaan komentar terkait penahanan warganya atas tuduhan mempersenjatai kelompok separatis Papua Merdeka. Pria bernama Jakub Fabian Skrzypski, 29, itu terancam hukuman penjara seumur hidup.
Skrzypski ditahan polisi Indonesia di Wamena sejak 26 Agustus 2018. Dia terancam hukuman penjara seumur hidup karena dituduh berkomplot melawan negara Indonesia.

Dia resmi jadi tersangka penyelundupan senjata untuk kelompok separatis Papua Merdeka.

Mengutip laporan Reuters, Selasa (11/9/2018), selain Skrzypski, ada beberapa warga Papua yang juga ditangkap secara terpisah. Mereka dituduh melanggar undang-undang tentang pengkhianatan yang bisa berujung pada hukuman penjara seumur hidup.

"Dia dituduh melakukan (pelanggaran) pengkhianatan," kata Kepala Bidang Humas Kepolisian Daerah Papua, Komisaris Besar Polisi Ahmad Musthofa Kamal.

Menurut polisi, Skrzypski masuk Indonesia dengan visa turis. Namun, dia membahas kesepakatan senjata dalam sebuah pertemuan dengan seorang pemimpin separatis kelompok Papua Merdeka, yang bermarkas di Papua Nugini dan belum ditangkap.

Polisi memiliki beberapa bukti, termasuk pesan ponsel dan video yang menunjukkan Skrzypski berpartisipasi dalam latihan menembak.

Kedutaan Besar Polandia di Jakarta hingga kini tidak menanggapi permintaan wartawan untuk berkomentar.

Sementara itu, kelompok pembela hak asasi manusia, TAPOL, meminta pihak berwenang Indonesia untuk membebaskan pria Polandia dan beberapa warga Papua yang dituduh melanggar undang-undang tentang pengkhianatan.

Menurut TAPOL yang dikutif Sindonews, seorang mahasiswa Papua Barat berusia 29 tahun, Simon Magal, ditangkap di Timika, beberapa hari setelah penangkapan Skrzypski. Magal dikenai tuduhan melakukan pengkhianatan karena telah bertemu dan berkomunikasi dengan Skrzypski. sangat berlebihan.

TAPOL mengatakan bahwa Magal, yang bersiap untuk melakukan perjalanan ke Australia untuk studi pasca-sarjana ketika dia ditangkap, hanya memiliki kontak yang minim dengan Skrzypski. Kelompok HAM ini menegaskan bahwa Magal tidak melakukan negosiasi senjata seperti yang dituduhkan.

Magal, lanjut TAPOL, hanya terseret oleh tindakan Skrzypski.

"Temuan kami menunjukkan bahwa Skrzypski hanyalah seorang turis yang mungkin bertindak sembarangan dan tidak bertanggung jawab di area konflik," kata kelompok tersebut dalam siaran pers-nya.

Menurut TAPOL, Skrzypski dituntut secara tidak adil, karena dia hanyalah seorang turis dengan kecenderungan untuk bepergian ke daerah berbahaya di seluruh dunia dan mungkin telah bertindak naif di zona konflik.

"Teman dekat Skrzypski yang kami wawancarai menggambarkannya sebagai seorang penjelajah 'ekstrem' yang penuh semangat dengan hasrat untuk budaya lain, bahasa, dan masalah kemanusiaan," lanjut TAPOL.(jon)

          EU Parliament Stands Up for Democratic Values       Cache   Translate Page      

Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban shows a document during a debate concerning Hungary's situation as part of a plenary session at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, eastern France on September 11, 2018.

© 2018 FREDERICK FLORIN/AFP/Getty Images

The European Parliament yesterday voted to censure the Hungarian government for tearing down its democratic institutions in ways that put EU’s core values at risk.

The move was an historic first for the European Parliament, and an important step that brings Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his Fidesz Party’s government some much-deserved scrutiny. It’s also an important message for others in Europe who might be tempted to follow his authoritarian path.

Poland’s government is already subject to the same process under the EU Treaty for its attacks on the courts and other democratic checks and balances, in that case initiated by the European Commission.   

The European Parliament was right to act on the deteriorating situation in Hungary. In recent years, the government has undermined the independence of the judiciary, and curbed media independence. It has targeted civil society, including with laws that force organizations to label themselves as foreign funded. In April, it passed another bill that criminalizes independent groups working to protect the rights of asylum seekers and migrants – a legitimate activity in any normal political environment.

In doing this, the government has pushed Hungary off the common EU path of democratic values and respect for human rights and the rule of law.

What comes next? Now EU member governments need to confirm there is a threat to EU values and to address the concerns raised by the parliament. Hungary could ultimately face political sanction, including being stripped of its voting rights if all other EU governments agree – but that’s a way off.

Action against Hungary’s government under the EU Treaty is overdue. The European Commission has tried to address the problematic laws and policies using its legal enforcement powers on case-by-case basis, but the Orbán government has largely ignored the criticism and refused to act on its recommendations.

Until yesterday, more holistic action had been hampered by the fact that the Fidesz Party is a member of the main center-right group in the European Parliament, the European People’s Party (EPP), which until recently helped shield it from criticism and prevented action. That is no longer the case.

The European Parliament decisively acted to stand up for the rights of the citizens it represents, a clear and welcome reminder that rights and values are not negotiable. It is now up to EU member governments to carry this decision forward in the EU Council.

Cooler to the north with rain or showers Thursday Isolated showers for the north and far south of Spain and the Balearics but staying dry with spells of sunshine across much of Portugal and Spain. Some sunshine but also showers, locally, heavy in Corsica Sardinia and Italy but dry into the Adriatic. Sunshine for Greece with early showers dying out but showers develop over Turkey, especially in central and northern parts with a risk of thunder. Early rain over the Low Countries and Northern France clears to give some sunshine but heavy showers are likely towards the east and south. Thundery showers for Austria and Switzerland, possibly extending into the south of Poland and Germany but dry with sunny spells further north. Further east and south, including towards the Black Sea coast it will be largely dry and sunny. Rainy over western and southern Norway but dry for much of the time over Scandinavia and the Baltic States, with only isolated showers. Temperatures across Central and Southern Europe typically in the high 20s to low 30s and locally around 35C in the south. Cooling off further north, high teens to low 20s and cooler still for Norther Scandinavia.

Friday Still dry for much of Portugal, Spain and the Balearics with only isolated shower but more significant showers moving into Southern Spain, possibly thundery later. Showers around Corsica and Sardinia at first with showers breaking out for a time across Italy and the Adriatic. Isolated showers for Greece but more showery across Turkey , especially in the north with a risk of thunder. Much of France dry with spells of sunshine but showers in the east and south. Mostly dry with sunshine and only isolated showers in the Low Countries, Northern Germany and Northern Poland but rain or showers, with isolated thunderstorms for Switzerland, Austria and the south of Germany and Poland. Mixed across Scandinavia and the Baltic States, sunshine and showers but with rain into the west and south of Norway and Sweden later. Little change temperature-wise, with the warmth in the south persisting.

World Junior U20 Chess Championship 2018: Round 8

Can anyone stop Parham Maghsoodloo? The way he plays, he’s simply irresistible. His performance is reminiscent of Mamedyarov’s - as the most recent example which comes to mind - totally dominating performances at youth and junior events. Only time will if he match or even surpass his achievements but we can safely predict that we’ll soon see the young Iranian enter the elite 2700+ club.

In girls section not much has changed with the games of leaders, top two boards, being drawn and Khomeriki, Dordzhieva and Maltsevskaya continue to share the lead entering the last three rounds. Who will emerge victorious from this trio or their close followers is probably a question we’ll only be able to answer after the last round.

Open Round 8 Results

Maghsoodloo’s win and his amazing 7,5/8 score is definitely the most important news of the day. The Iranian chose the Classical Sicilian against IM Venkataraman of India and in Richter-Rauzer Maghsoodloo played 9…Bd7, a pet line of the famous Croatian grandmaster Zdenko Kozul. The Indian master - probably wisely after his choice of a3 - decided to lead the game to a complex Sicilian ending. In the beginning it looked like white might get a slight advantage but Maghsoodloo played it better than his opponent and when his opponent went completely wrong trading e-pawn with black b-pawn and thus opening up the position to blacks advantage the Iranian grandmaster played almost flawlessly till the end. Just three more rounds to go and we might see Iran getting the gold!

IMG 7193

On second board things didn’t go as smoothly as on first board however for Iran. Alireza Firouzja misplayed the Delayed Exchange Ruy Lopez against the American Awonder Liang and found himself already seriously worse around 15th move. There didn’t seem to be much counterplay and the way Firouzja tried to create it only led to more weaknesses and material deficit which Liang exploited very efficiently. Great game for the American grandmaster and a surprisingly easy win.

In 9th round we’ll see the sole leader Maghsoodloo (7,5 pts) playing white against Liang (6,5 pts), and a win for the Iranian will mean that he will practically clinch the title. If Liang wins though everything will be up for grabs and even some of the ten players with 6 points might begin dreaming of becoming champion! The most important matchup of the open section for sure!

Girls Round 8 Results

In girls section Khomeriki – Maltsevskaya and Potapova – Dordzhieva on top two boards ended in draws and since the only other player except Potapova with 5,5 points, Gorti lost an equal ending in zeitnot to Tokhirjonova no one could reach them which means Khomeriki and the two Russians, Maltsevskaya and Dordzhieva are still in the lead before the last three rounds.

Potapova – Dordzhieva game always revolved around equality but on first board Khomeriki seemed to get a significant lasting advantage. However against Maltsevskaya’s positionally dubious but active play the Georgian star couldn’t play precisely and the game ended in a repetition.

The rook endgame with pawn races in Zhu – Paramzina game - which should probably have never occurred had Paramzina played more positionally sound - made our commentators sweat in the live commentary room and it can definitely serve the purpose of a training material for calculation. Although there was one very important mistake on 40th move Paramzina generally played the ending superbly and got a necessary win crucial for her chances in the championship.

IMG 7074

The highly dramatic Assaubayeva – Sliwicka game was definitely a miracle for the Russian player. Since some very important Russian writers came up with it, there has been always a talk of a characteristic Russian soul. One of its features is a belief in miracles and it seems sometimes this approach too works. The clearest win for Sliwicka was 54…Nc6, a terribly easy move to make but sometimes Caissa can cloud your mind totally and the Polish player completely lost the thread of the game afterwards, managing first to turn a totally winning position to a draw and then finally to a loss! A really lucky moment for Bibisara Assaubayeva, whose play in this championship failed to impress but she’s still in contention for the first place.

In 9th round there are very important matchups: Maltsevskaya – Dordzhieva, Assaubayeva – Khomeriki, Paramzina – Tokhirjonova and Hojjatova – Potapova. The winners - if any - will be in a very good position to fight for the title in the last two rounds!

9th round will start on September 13, 15.00 local time. As we are getting closer to the end the games too are getting more and more exciting! Don’t forget to watch the live broadcast & commentary by IM Arduman & FM Selbes with surprise guests.


World Junior U20 Chess Championship 2018: Round 7

2018 World Junior Championship continues with full pace! All games were rich in terms of pure chess content as always and the round turned out to be a crucial one in both sections. The only player with full score, Nino Khomeriki from Georgia was finally beaten by WIM Dordzhieva and together with Maltsevskaya there are now three players with 6 points in girls section. In open section the game of leaders Maghsoodloo and Sindarov ended in Iranian stars favor, in which a theoretical debate resulted in a very sharp position where Maghsoodloo managed to outplay his young opponent. This leeaves Maghsoodloo alone at the top with 6,5 points and he’s followed by his compatriot GM Firouzja and Indian IM Venkataraman from a half a point distance.

Open Round 7 Results

The most awaited game of the day was obviously Maghsoodloo – Sindarov. A win by any player would have meant to be sole leader, a feat which was accomplished by the more experienced Iranian grandmaster. Players entered into some wild complications already seen a few times in grandmaster play, most notably in Dubov – Kovalev, Aeroflot 2017. It was Sindarov who went off the beaten path with his 16…Bg4!? instead of Kovalev’s more logical choice 16…exd4 which appears to be more solid and objectively better. However Sindarov’s choice gave black a dangerous initiative and active play as well. Parham Maghsoodloo is a calculating beast who is not afraid of complications and risks however and when he found the great maneuver Bc1-Ba3, followed by Bb3 it was obvious that only white can play for a win. Although there were few slips and a missed drawing opportunity for Sindarov with 37…Rh4! the Iranian grandmaster showed a high level of play in general and gained deservedly the full point.

IMG 6973

On second board the game which started as Italian turned out to be a King’s Indian after all, in terms of pawn structure. It was GM Firouzja who played better and he beat Vavulin in a fine game with the theme of absolute positional dominance. If Tabatabaei could have won on third board too it would have been a perfect day for Iran but things are rarely so perfect in life and it was the Indian IM Venkataraman who got the full point, thanks to a sudden switch to a kingside attack for which Tabatabaei was completely unprepared. A very instructive game!

Other winners of the round on top boards were Hakobyan, Liang, Christiansen and Bai Jinshi. Of these games the most dramatic one was definitely Christiansen – Narayanan. The strong Indian grandmaster was two pawns up in a queens ending but somehow found a way to löse! This could’ve been a nice entry for Dvoretsky’s “Tragicomedies” collection, had Mark Dvoretsky still lived.

In 8th round we’ll have Venkataraman – Maghsoodloo, Liang – Firouzja, Bai Jinshi – Christiansen, Sindarov – Hakobyan on top boards, all pretty difficult and even matchups promising great entertainment for chess fans already!

Girls Round 7 Results

If Khomeriki had won today she could have left a big step behind towards the title but things went wrong for the Georgian and she lost her first point here. To be fair her opponent Dordzhieva from Russia played a good game after she gained the advantage so this loss was definitely not a surprise in the actual sense of the word. A bad result for Georgia but nothing is lost, she’s still at the top and a few wins in the coming rounds will easily settle the score for Nino Khomeriki.

IMG 7001

On second board it was a Russian duel between Maltsevskaya and Paramzina which was won by Maltsevskaya in the end. In fact she showed a great level of play, probably on par with Khomeriki in terms of quality, so it wasn’t a surprise. Potapova’s win on fifth board against Sieber of Germany meant a great day for Russian girls actually and as of this round in top 5 we see three Russians!

Pre-championship favorites Assaubayeva and Tsolakidou didn’t have a great day. Bibisara Assaubayeva couldn’t turn her tangible advantage into a win and Tsolakidou probably mixed up something in her preparation as she got a worse position right out of the opening. A major setback for the top seeded Tsolakidou.

In 8th round there are very interesting games on top two boards: Khomeriki – Maltsevskaya and Potapova - Dordzhieva.

The 8th round will start on September 12, 15:00. Don’t miss IM Arduman & FM Selbes’ live commentary and broadcast with surprise guests!




World Junior U20 Chess Championship 2018: Round 6

Georgia has been a superpower in women chess for quite some time and it seems soon a new name will be added to the list of countless elite players they produced: Nino Khomeriki. She has an unbeliavable perfect score with 6/6 and already has already managed to put - a quite significant- gap of 1 point between herself and the three Russian musketeers: Maltsevskaya, Dordzhieva and Paramzina. If anyone will be able to stop WIM Khomeriki in the next rounds remains to be seen, but if other players have dreams of becoming champion they better hurry before Khomeriki escapes with the title!

In the open section Parham Maghsoodloo could also keep his perfect score if he beat his compatriot Firouzja but as the game reached a friendly outcome he has 5,5 points and shares the lead with the Uzbek prodigy IM Javokhir Sindarov who has won a fine game against IM Christiansen of Norway. For sure a lot will be on stake in the game between the two leaders next round. The future of Uzbek chess definitely looks to be bright with shining young stars such as IM Sindarov and GM Abdusattorov. Of course Iran is also on course to become a great force in chess world with such young talents like Maghsoodloo, Firouzja, Tabatabaei.

Open Round 6 Results

The game on first board between two Iranian players have seen points split quite friendly in an uneventful manner as already mentioned. Sindarov-Christiansen on second board however provided great entertainment, unless you’re a Norwegian obviously. It seemed that Christiansen wasn’t ready for Sindarov’s idea. Although he drifted into a type of position where he had an unpleasant defence in front of him, there was certainly no need to allow the obvious 19. Rxf6 exchange sacrifice, destroying the black kingside completely after which Sindarov easily rounded up the full point. A great result for Sindarov, a win tomorrow against Maghsoodloo and who knows; we might have the second youngest grandmaster in history!

In the all German game Donchenko – Kollars, Black misplayed in the opening and ended up being pawn down with only slight compensation. But inaccuracies of Donchenko led to the escape of Kollars and the game was drawn. On fourth board Santos Ruiz – Esipenko, the Russian player held perhaps a slight advantage most of the game but it never turned into anything tangible and players agreed to a draw just before it fizzled out to a drawn rook endgame.

IMG 6853

Possibly the game of the round was played on fifth board between two Indian players: Aravindh-Venkataraman. Scheveningen is a very complex system in Sicilian with lots of nuances and it seemed IM Venkataraman had a better understanding of the position. It was a near perfect effort by Black, combining defense with destruction of white center after which black rooks infiltrated white ranks with decisive effect. Truly in the style of Garry Kasparov, the greatest expert of Scheveningen; probably even now.

Other players with 5 points are GM Tabatabei of Iran who managed to beat Indian IM Bharathakoti after the latter made a great mistake on 45th move in a totally equal position and IM Vavulin of Russia who won a game of twists and turns according to Tartakower’s maxim: The game is won by the player who made the next-to-last mistake.

Besides Maghsoodloo-Sindarov the other most important matchups of 7th round are Firouzja – Vavulin and Venkataraman – Tabatabei in the open section.

Girls Round 6 Results

It’s becoming more and more a one man show or in this case a one girl show rather. Khomeriki played another high-class game, this time in the ultra-theoretical and sharp Meran against Bulgarian FM Antova, and scored another nice win to keep her perfect score. The accuracy of Georgian so far has really been above the others and that shows itself in the standings as well. Very impressive!

On second board Maltsevskaya played another fine game against Assaubayeva but being in mutual zeitnot she couldn’t calculate a win and opted for a draw. A good result for FM Assaubayeva who couldn’t show her strength in this particular game.

On third and fourth boards Russian girls WIM Dordzhieva and WGM Paramzina win with white pieces against Haussernot and Sliwicka respectively. Dordzhieva – Haussernot was pretty fun to watch with mutual mistakes in a very complex position which finally ended in favor of the Russian. Paramzina – Sliwicka was a more one-sided and correct effort but it had another interesting feature. Sliwicka played the same idea Khomeriki used to beat her yesterday with black pieces but the Polish player lost again! Losing two games in a row in almost the same position both as white and black must feel upsetting. Still Sliwicka showed her strength in the rounds before and best of luck to her in the rest of the championship!

IMG 0272

Finally the story of the round! On fifth board IM Tsolakidou was playing with white against WFM Hilario of Peru. Although she missed an opportunity for getting a big advantage by playing 8.a3 - instead she chose 8. Qc2 - according to her trainer Ioannis Papaioannou, she still managed to get a playable position. However no one could expect that the game would end on 12th move! Tsolakidou took the black knight with 12. Nxd5 and after 12…Nxd5 or 12…exd5 the game would have continued. Instead of taking back the knight however the Peruvian player touched her c-pawn, after which she had no choice but resign! A very unfortunate event for Hilario and a very precious gift for Tsolakidou.

In 7th round Dordzhieva – Khomeriki and Maltsevskaya – Paramzina will definitely be the games to follow as well as Gorti – Tsolakidou and Antova – Assaubayeva.

The 7th round will start on September 11, 15:00 local time. Don’t forget to follow the games and live commentary of IM Arduman & FM Selbes with the always entertaining and instructive GM Papaioannou as the guest commentator.


World Junior U20 Chess Championship 2018: Round 5

As we leave the fifth round behind, we have in both categories a sole leader with full points. In the open section Parham Maghsoodlo from Iran had been overpowering his opponents so far with his brilliant calculation ability and today was no exception either so he keeps his perfect score as of now. In the women section it was Nino Khomeriki from Georgia who emerged as the winner in the game between two leaders so she’s leading with 5 points. A great achievement for both but there’s no time to relax as there are six more difficult games to play!

Open Round 5 Results

All eyes were set on the first two boards in the open section as the players with perfect scores were paired against each other. GM Maghsoodloo was black against IM Bharathakoti and his compatriot GM Firouzja had white pieces against Uzbek IM Sindarov. At one point it seemed like Firouzja will win and Maghsoodloo is going to make a draw but when the round has ended it was the opposite! Still a great day for Iran with the other Iranian grandmaster Tabatabaei also winning!

IMG 6703

Harsha Bharathakoti actually put up a good fight against Maghsoodloo and it seemed like he gained the upper hand in a 5. Bd2!? Nimzo-Indian, a popular sideline recently used by many players to avoid the theory. As Maghsoodloo himself admitted in the postmortem analysis black hasn’t played in the best fashion but still managed to get a good position. Things really began to look scary when the Iranian superstar lost two tempi playing the f6-knight to e4 via e8-d6 route instead of immediately playing 16…Ne4. According to GM Maghsoodloo 22. f5! push would have been much more dangerous than 22.d5 - a very accurate assessment according to our silicon friend. The move in the game also seemed very scary but Maghsoodloo managed to find all the best moves to neutralize white’s attack. To give Bharathakoti his due, the Indian IM attacked vigorously, with a rook sacrifice and so on, and a lesser player could easily lose with black. The resilient defense of Maghsoodloo paid off in the end and in a position, which could have been drawn, Indian IM missed 37…Bh3! which basically forces mate. Another very entertaining game by the young Iranian!

Firouzja too didn’t disappoint in terms of entertainment. Sindarov who has played Zaitsev, an opening line which was featured in Kasparov-Karpov matches very frequently as Igor Zaitsev himself was seconding Karpov, wasn’t probably familiar with the Ree3-b3 idea of white, attacking the black pawns and at the same time trying to put the dark squared bishop in the long diagonal with deadly threats. The exchange of dark squared bishops was positionally very undesirable for black and it also cost him a pawn. Firouzja seemed to be winning easily but the young Uzbek didn’t lose any heart in defense and complicated the matters as much as he could. To pull the hippopotamus out of the marsh of complications wasn’t an easy task for anyone and Firouzja trying to play safely missed the win. All he could get was a rook+knight vs rook endgame in the end and players agreed to a draw. A near miss for the Iranian star but Sindarov also fought in a very exemplary fashion once he found himself in a lost position.

IM Christiansen from Norway played a very good game in Fianchetto Grünfeld and didn’t give his opponent any chance at all. A tour de force from the first move! The same can also be said of Esipenko-Tang game. Russian young talent GM Andrey Esipenko played a great positional game in the style of Karpov, very pleasing to the eyes of fans of positional play for sure. After the free day on Monday we’ll see an Iranian derby between Maghsoodloo and Firouzja on first board. On second board Sindarov will play against Christiansen with white pieces. With other matchups such as Donchenko-Kollars and Santos Ruiz-Esipenko the sixth round is going to be very interesting for sure.

Girls Round 5 Results

In girls section today was another bloodfest with top six games being decisive. On the first board Nino Khomeriki answered the Italian Game with Two Knights Defense with Be7; usually a line which resembles Ruy Lopez. However Khomeriki had a different take on it and she opted for an aggressive plan with Nh7-f5-f4. It proved to be a very wise decision as Sliwicka found the aggressive threats of black on the kingside very difficult to deal with. A great result for the young Georgian who is now with 5/5 the sole leader.

IMG 6695

On second board we had Maltsevskaya-Tsolakidiou matchup and it provided some very instructive lessons on play with/against isolani. If you wonder what kind of lessons these are please watch comments of GM Ioannis Papaioannou in the live commentary room about positions with isolated pawns and this game in particular. Although initially it seemed like Tsolakidou equalized easily when she embarked on a faulty knight maneuver with 19…Ne7?! White gained the upper hand. There followed a very purposeful play by Maltsevskaya and she simply outplayed her opponent. A nice win for the Russian player who finds herself just half a point behind Khomeriki together with the Bulgarian FM Antova who won against Chinese WIM Chu in an epic game which lasted 97 moves!

Assaubayeva won today and reached 4 points, something which the sixth seed Azeri Hojjatova couldn’t do as she lost in a not so good fashion against Peruvian WFM Hilario. Other players with 4 points are Haussernot from France and Dordzhieva and Paramzina from Russian Federation.

There are also tough games awaiting us in the next round such as Khomeriki-Antova, Assaubayeva-Maltsevskaya, Dordzhieva- Haussernot and Paramzina – Sliwicka. Don’t miss the always entertaining and hard-fought games of the girls section. When it comes to willpower and energy girls can teach a thing or two to boys!

Tomorrow is free day in the championship. The sixth round will start on September 10, Monday 15:00 local time. See you in the live broadcast & commentary on Monday but let’s all have a one day rest first!



World Junior U20 Chess Championship 2018: Rounds 3-4

With double rounds today was very exhausting for players. Even though they are all under 20 and at the peak of their energy playing high-level chess from 10 am to 10 pm in such a difficult championship takes its toll even on the fittest of all. But anyway we witnessed many great battles today and in terms of sheer chess content it was an amazingly rich day.

Open Round 3 Results

Open Round 4 Results

After the two rounds played today in the open section we have four players left with perfect score. Two Iranians, top seed GM Parham Maghsoodloo and eight seed GM Alireza Firouzja as well as the 12 years old Uzbek sensation IM Javokhir Sindarov and the 40th seed (!) Indian IM Bharathakoti Harsha. However as Greek GM Ioannis Papaioannou wisely said on the live commentary: “First three rounds mean nothing at such a long championship and the last three rounds everything!” So everything is pretty much on.

IMG 6389

The top seed Maghsoodloo played two extremely difficult and interesting games today. In the morning round Polish IM Lukasz Jarmula have played very well up to a point against the Iranian star and have got a very promising position. Fortunately for Maghsoodloo his opponent went wrong with 42. Ng7?, putting the knight on a wrong square which turned the tables completely. Perhaps not in a very accurate fashion but still the Iranian managed to punish his opponent for his mistake in the end. In the afternoon the game was again very difficult. This time, against the strong Armenian GM Hakobyan, it was always Maghsoodloo who held the advantage but the resulting queen and bishop ending with an extra pawn was terribly difficult to calculate; especially the advanced h-pawn was always a source of worry for white. Hakobyan’s tenacious play was almost rewarded at the end as his opponent played 73. e7??, thinking that after 73…Qxe7 the h-pawn is won by a series of checks; missing the Kh8-Qh7 idea which protects the h-pawn and forces Maghsoodloo to a draw. Still an impressive performance by Parham Maghsoodloo overall. One has to give credit to players who have played so many hours today and were probably extremely tired.

Firouzja has also played two very entertaining games, against Vugar Asadli in the morning round and then in the afternoon against Andrew Tang, a familiar name to online chess community. Both games were well played, even though Firouzja gave his opponents few chances to save both games it always seemed like he was the side pushing for a win.

The Uzbek prodigy Javokhir Sindarov made good use of two whites today and beat two very strong grandmasters in a row: Tabatabaei and Aravindh! Just an advice for Sindarov’s future opponents: Don’t play the Sicilian or even if you do, don’t let him play Nxc6 followed by e5 because he will beat you! Keep this boys name in your mind because it seems that you will hear it a lot in maybe 5-6 years from now on. If he wins this championship he will automatically become GM and thus become the second youngest grandmaster ever after Karjakin!

Top boards on 5th round will be Harsha Barathkoti - Maghsoodloo and Firouzja – Sindarov. Let’s see which players can keep their perfect score, if any!

Girls Round 3 Results

Girls Round 4 Results

In girls section we have only two players left with perfect score: WFM Alicja Sliwicka from Poland and WIM Nino Khomeriki from Georgia. As both countries are known for their strength in women chess it seems that they also have fresh talents coming up! Both players made a good impression with their play today, especially in the last round.

Sliwicka’s win against Gorti from USA was brilliant where the young Polish talent managed to keep control of the game until the very end. Khomeriki also played a brilliancy and punished some not so precise opening play by Kazakh Nurgali very efficiently. It seems that both players are in a great form and play at a higher level than their ratings suggest.

IMG 6280

Bibisara Assaubayeva, the third seed of the championship, had a 2/2 start but today achieved only two draws although having acquired great winning chances in both games. Top seeded IM Tsolakidou fared much better however as she won two good games and enter the fifth round just half a point behind the leaders.

Fourth round saw two very important surprise results too, 4th seed WGM Tokhirjonova losing to Maltsevskaya and 2nd seed IM Nomin-Erdene getting a second loss, this time against Chinese Yuxin Song who is having a great championship. The fifth seed WIM Zhu Jiner also didn’t have a great day, with one draw against Ece Özbay and a loss against her compatriot WIM Ruotong Chu she has only 2 points as of now and will try to make a comeback.

The 5th round will start on September 8, 14:00 local time. Stay tuned for very entertaining games tomorrow and also don’t miss the live commentary of IM Arduman & FM Selbes!

World Junior U20 Chess Championship 2018: Round 2

Although first round was by no means a one-sided battle for favorites, the second round was destined to be even tougher as the rating differences between paired opponents got less. All the games were hard-fought and contained interesting and bold play from young stars.

Open Round 2 Results

In the open section it was a good day for 2600+ players as Maghsoodloo, Donchenko and Karthikeyan - despite the draw in the first round you can count Jorden van Foreest as well - all won fine games against their lesser rated opponents, thus entering the third round unharmed with 2 points.

One of the greatest upsets of the round was the defeat of the 16 years old Russian star Andrey Esipenko, at the hands of 18 years old Kazakh player Denis Makhnev. IM Makhnev played the opening phase of a Semi-Tarrasch game not too well and allowed Esipenko to equalize easily. At one point it looked like Black could even take the initiative but things have changed with Esipenko’s very quickly played move 18…Rd8? Makhnev found the best way of playing, namely with the idea of trapping the awkwardly placed black queen; a problem which Esipenko found very hard to deal with. By move 25 Makhnev won the f7-pawn and then went on to calculate a brilliant sequence of tactics to reach a double rooks ending with an extra bishop vs two pawns; which he converted perfectly. A great performance by the Kazakh player!

IMG 6178

The fifth board also saw a brilliant win by the Chinese grandmaster Xu. The intermediate move 20. Rxf6! was a beautiful exchange sacrifice after which the passivity of black pieces and mate threats led to a material down and totally lost ending for Janik from Poland.

Two other notable games in both of which underdogs have won against their opponents need to be mentioned. IM Percivaldi from Denmark won what seemed to be a very well played game against GM Bai from China, punishing his opponent for his reckless play. The 13 years old Işık Can of Turkey, one of the brightest stars of Turkish chess, managed to win against IM Lobanov from Russia; thanks to a very dangerous passed pawn on c-file. A very well played ending by the young FM! At 2 points Işık Can is also leading the race between the local players as of now.

By the end of the second round only 25 players remain with full score in the open category and with the exception of Işık Can -against GM Martirosyan (1.5 pts)- they will play against each other. We are still nowhere near the climax of the tournament and the best is yet to come!

Girls Round 2 Results

It was a day of missed opportunities and twists in girls section. There were four draws in the first five boards but it could easily have been five decisive games as well.

IM Tsolakidou of Greece, the top seed of the championship, had a significant advantage in a queenless middlegame position against Chinese WIM Chu but when she missed a couple of nuances at critical moments her advantage dissipated and the game ended in a draw. Bibisara Assaubayeva won on second board against Indian WIM Varshini, a game which went equal for a long time but when the Indian WIM finally faltered FM Assaubayeva didn’t give a second chance to her opponent.

IMG 6167

Perhaps the most incredible game of the round was played on third board, between German FM Schneider and the Uzbek WGM Tokhirjonova. Schneider opted for a wrong setup in Giuoco Pianissimo and handed down a very dangerous kingside attack to her opponent which was probably winning at a few moments of the game. However WGM Tokhirjonova lost her way and somehow a winning ending for white emerged on the board! FM Schneider played very well, all the way until the promotion after which she was an exchange up with a very easily winning position. Just pushing her passed pawn or mopping up the a-pawn of black was enough to win the game easily but instead miracles began to happen and in the end one can even say that it was white who had to make the draw! If someone speaks of the merits of resigning in completely lost positions show him/her this game!

The wins of Egyptian WGM Wafa and Polish WFM Dwilewicz against WIM Unuk and WIM Haussernot were also very impressive in different ways, the former being a slow grind whereas the latter a 27 move mate after some power play by White!

Third round of 2018 World Junior Chess Championship will start on September 7, 10:00 local time as the next one will be played in the afternoon at 17:00! A tiring day for sure, both for players and our commentators IM Arduman & FM Selbes! See you tomorrow at the live broadcast!

World Junior U20 Chess Championship 2018: Round 1

2018 World Junior Chess Championship and World U-20 Girls Championship have started today. A very important championship historically – just mentioning the fact that world champions Spassky (1955), Karpov(1969), Kasparov (1980) and Anand (1987) have all started as world junior champions is enough - it is definitely the event to follow these days, especially if you want to discover the elite players of future.

This years edition sees a record-breaking number of participation, players from 65 different countries have come to Gebze/Turkey to compete for the most important title U-20. But it’s not just about quantity. In the open section there are 30 players who have an ELO rating higher than 2500, which shows the strength of the competition. As for girls, it might seem to be not as strong as the open category but still in a very evenly matched field anything might happen, so lots of surprises and difficult battles should be expected in this category as well. Let’s have a short look at first round in both sections.

Open Round 1 Results

The first round usually brings heavy favorites against weak players but not here. For example on the first board GM Maghsoodloo (2649) from Iran found himself matched up against FM Wadsworth (2351) of England. Certainly not a championship to be taken lightly, even the very start is quite difficult in this marathon.

That being said still the first round saw few surprises. 12 years old Russian talent Volodar Murzin held against the second seed Jorden van Foreest and thus managed to begin the championship with a draw, usually not a bad result if you are playing with black against a 2624 ELO player! One of the local hopes, FM Tuna Tuncer of Turkey has played a very clean game against GM Martirosyan (2597) of Armenia and in a position with a material imbalance accepted the draw offer of his opponent. Probably a wise decision by the Armenian grandmaster, as black knight and bishop had trouble finding good squares for themselves whereas the same cannot be said of white rook and pawns.

In the second round we’ll see closer matchups than today and we can certainly expect a great amount of hard-fought games! Stay tuned for the live broadcast!

Girls Round 1 Results

Women chess in general is a lot more exciting than men and this first round was also another occasion proving it. On board number one, the rating favorite Stavroula Tsolakidou from Greece seemed to be cruising to victory but then somehow found herself completely lost! This was not the end of the drama though as her opponent Malatsilava returned the favor and thus lost her chance to inflict a very upsetting defeat on IM Tsolakidou at the start of the championship.

The second board also saw the underdog getting winning chances, this time actually capitalizing on it. The second seed IM Nomin-Erdene from Mongolia found out that her Chilean opponent is not to be underestimated and lost in an uncomfortable position despite opposite-colored bishops to WIM Gomez Barrera. An early setback after which the Mongolian star will have a hard time climbing up the ranks again, but in an 11-rounds event everything’s possible!

R1 1

There are tough pairings in the second round as Tsolakidou and Assaubayeva will find themselves matched up against Chinese WIM Ruotong and Indian WIM Varshini respectively. If you think about how underrated players from China and India actually are these matches will be quite interesting to follow!

See you all at the second round starting on September 6, 15:00 local time! Don’t miss the live broadcast and commentary by IM Arduman & FM Selbes!

          Farmers Thrown Under Bus By Own Lobbying Group in ‘Right to Repair’ Fight      Cache   Translate Page      
Many of us have downloaded cracked software from the darker corners of the internet over the years. Remember when the only way to get Photoshop was to buy a $700 license? Yeah, enough said. Some of the most prolific users of cracked software these days aren't who you think. Farmers across the USA are grabbing modified copies of tractor software from sketchy Eastern European websites to get around John Deere's draconian software restrictions. Large-scale farming is now a heavily mechanized industry, and some of these pieces of machinery can cost several times as much as your car. John Deere is becoming known as a particularly troublesome company to deal with when you need to make repairs on one of the expensive pieces of farm equipment you bought. Farmers explained to Motherboard recently how the software running on their tractors make even simple repairs a pain. John Deere's tractor firmware prevents the owners from making an unauthorized repairs. Whenever maintenance is needed, an authorized agent needs to swing by and connect to the tractor with diagnostic software. They okay the repair, and the tractor to works. Without that, it's a very big paperweight. John Deere charges several hundred dollars for service calls, plus $150 per hour for the technician. When techs aren't available, they have to wait. The alternative many are starting to turn to is pirating the diagnostic software themselves. Most of the cracked John Deere programs seem to be coming out of Poland and Ukraine. Gaining access involves finding one of the secretive invite-only forums and paying a membership fee. Once inside, farmers can buy John Deere's software kits for a few hundred dollars -- the cost of just a few maintenance checks. The legality of this is questionable. The Librarian of Congress has approved a temporary exemption to the DMCA that allows owners of land vehicles to circumvent locked down software. Doing it with cracked software is a different matter. The farm-heavy state of Nebraska is one of those pushing right-to-repair legislation, which would render John Deere's license agreement void. Then, it would have to sue individual customers for violating the contract if it wanted to enforce it. Naturally, it's fighting the legislation hard. Farmers fear what will happen if right to repair doesn't become law. Will John Deere get to decided when their tractors stop working by ending repair service? It's like when a game developer shuts down the online authentication server for that game you bought five years ago. Except instead a game that cost you $40, it's a tractor that cost $30,000 and should be able to run for years to come.

California farmers fighting for the right to repair got hosed by their own lobbying arm.

          وزير خارجية بولندا: خسائرنا من الحرب العالمية الثانية مستمرة       Cache   Translate Page      

لم تزل آثار الحرب العالمية الثانية وأشباحها تخيم على أوروبا، كما تخيم على العالم بأسره. لكن في القارة العجوز لتلك الظلال نكهة أخرى ومفاعيل يومية حيوية لإرث تلك الحرب الكبرى، سواء على الفاعلين أو المفعول بهم أثناءها. أقدمت مجلة دبير شبيغل الألمانية على محاورة وزير الدبلوماسية البولندي جاسيك تشوابوتوفيتش، بلسان محررها ماركوس بيكر، بشأن مطالبات بلاده، التي كانت فاتحة الحرب فيها، بتعويضات من ألمانيا، ننقل مجرياته مترجمة بتصرف في النص التالي. 


  • شبيغل أونلاين: سيادة الوزير تشوابوتوفيتش، منذ عامٍ واحدٍ فقط، بدت قضية تعويضات الحرب العالمية الثانية وكأنها شيءٌ من الماضي البعيد في العلاقات البولندية الألمانية. الآن، يريد سياسيون في حزب العدالة والقانون الحاكم (PiS) -وأنت نفسك منهم- مناقشة الحصول على تعويضات من ألمانيا مرة أخرى. لماذا إذن؟

ما يزال الناس في بولندا بعد ثلاثة وسبعين عامًا من الحرب العالمية الثانية يتحدثون عن معاناتنا وخسائرنا خلالها. إنها جزء من هويتنا، إن جاز لي التعبير. وفي بولندا، نظن أن خسائرنا كانت أكبر بكثير من خسائر البلدان الأخرى. لكن إذا ما نظرت إلى ما قدمته ألمانيا لسائر بلدان أوروبا الغربية تعويضًا عن خسائرها، مثل فرنسا أو بلجيكا على سبيل المثال، وما قدمته لبولندا تعويضًا عن خسائرنا، فسوف ترى تناقضًا.

  •  في شهر كانون الثاني/يناير، قلت إن تعويضات الحرب العالمية الثانية ليست موضع خلافٍ بين حكومتي ألمانيا وبولندا. ولكن في نهاية شهر آب/أغسطس، تصدرتَ عناوين الأخبار من خلال القول إن التعويضات يجب مناقشتها. ما الذي تغير؟

  لم يتغير شيء. في كانون الثاني/يناير، اتفقنا مع وزير خارجية ألمانيا آنذاك، زِيغمار غابرييل، على ضرورة مناقشة التعويضات بين الخبراء. كل ما قمت به ببساطة هو أنني أكدت هذا الموقف عندما سُئلت عن هذا الأمر من قبل وسائل الإعلام.

  • لكن موقف الحكومة الألمانية واضحٌ؛ فهم يرون أن القضية يجب تسويتها قانونيًا.

 بالطبع هناك آراء مختلفة بين المحامين في كلا البلدين. وقال الوزير غابرييل إن القضية أُغلقت من الناحية القانونية بالنسبة لألمانيا. وهو ما تم الطعن عليه، رغم ذلك، من قبل المحامين البولنديين. هناك منظور أخلاقي للقضية أيضًا. حاليًا، هذه ليست قضية تجري مناقشتها في الحكومة البولندية. لكن هناك لجنة برلمانية تحقق في القضية. فهذه مسألة مهمة أيضًا فيما يتعلق بتاريخنا، وليس فقط فيما يخص علاقتنا بألمانيا.

  •  وفقًا لأحد أعضاء البرلمان البولندي من حزب العدالة والقانون الذي تنتمي إليه، فإنه يجب على ألمانيا دفع ما تصل قيمته إلى 850 مليار دولار، أو ما يعادل حوالي 730 مليار يورو. أيوجد في بالك أيضًا رقم محدد؟

 لا، فهذا سابق لأوانه. ووافق الوزير غابرييل على أن هذا الأمر ينبغي تحديده بواسطة الخبراء. يحق لنا مناقشة هذه القضية. وإذا كانت العلاقات بين البلدين تتسم بالنضج، فإن مثل هذه المناقشة يجب أن تكون أمرًا طبيعيًا. وليس من الملائم إغلاقها.

  •  هل هذه مناقشة تاريخية بحتة؟ أم هل هناك أيضًا أسباب سياسية وراء المطالبة بالتعويضات، مثل نوعٍ من السياسة الداخلية أو للأمر علاقة بالخلاف الجاري مع الاتحاد الأوروبي حول خروقات سيادة القانون في بلدك؟ إذ يطالب بالفعل السياسيون في العديد من الدول الأعضاء في الاتحاد الأوروبي، ومن بينهم ألمانيا، بخفض المساعدات المقدمة من قبل الاتحاد الأوروبي إلى بولندا وبلدانٍ أخرى.

 لا توجد علاقة بين قضية التعويضات والانتقادات الموجهة إلينا من جانب ألمانيا فيما يتعلق بمسألة سيادة القانون. هذه قضايا منفصلة.

  •  في مقترحها الأخير بشأن ميزانية الاتحاد الأوروبي خلال السبع سنواتٍ المقبلة؛ قدمت المفوضية الأوروبية آلية جديدة لمعاقبة الدول الأعضاء التي تنتهك معايير الاتحاد الأوروبي المتعلقة بسيادة القانون. هل ستعارض الحكومة البولندية هذا الأمر؟

 ربما لن نعارض فكرة الجمع بين إنفاق المال واحترام سيادة القانون من حيث المبدأ. لكننا لا نرى أن المفوضية الأوروبية لديها أي معايير ملموسة بالنسبة لهذا الأمر. عوضًا عن ذلك، نرى أنها بمثابة وسيلة لممارسة الضغط السياسي. إذ تُقدم الخطة باعتبارها عقوبة لبولندا. لذا، نعم، سنعارضها.

  • خفضت حكومتك سن تقاعد قضاة المحكمة العليا من 70 إلى 65 سنة، وستكون النتيجة هي تقاعد عشرات القضاة دفعة واحدة؛ ما لم يمنحهم الرئيس أندريه دودا (Andrzej Duda) تصريحًا بالبقاء في مناصبهم. الآن، طلبت المحكمة العليا في بولندا من محكمة العدل الأوروبية التأكد مما إذا كان هذا الإجراء قانونيًّا. هل تخشى من أن يكون تعديلكم القانون في خطر؟

 سنرى ماذا سيكون حكم المحكمة. ونأمل أننا سنفوز، لأن لنا الحق في إصلاح وتعديل نظامنا. نريد أن نجعله أكثر استقلالية وشفافية وفعالية.

  • لكن الحكومة البولندية أيضًا تقول إن أحد أسباب الإصلاح أو التعديل هو تطهير السلطة القضائية من الأواصر الشيوعية. ألا يُعدُّ هذا هدفًا سياسيًا؟

بالفعل، يوجد من بين القضاة الكبار في السن أولئك من أصدر أحكامًا ضد المعارضة خلال النظام الشيوعي. لكننا لا نرغب في تسييس السلطة القضائية. ولا يُخالف أي شيء في تعديلنا معايير الاتحاد الأوروبي.

  •  قد تصدر محكمة العدل الأوروبية حكمًا مختلفًا. إذا ما حدث ذلك، هل ستطبق الحكومة البولندية الحكم؟

  قد يكون من السابق لأوانه الآن أن نتحدث عمّا
