Iraq’s semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan has recently upgraded its oil export pipeline, boosting its capacity to 1 million bpd from 700,000 bpd, to accommodate future production growth from the region, the Ministry of Natural Resources of the Kurdistan Regional Government said over the weekend. “This extra capacity will accommodate future production growth from KRG producing fields, and can also be used by the federal government to export the currently stranded oil in Kirkuk and surrounding areas,” KRG’s ministry said…

"For soldiers serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, coming home is more lethal than being in combat." ― Brené Brown, research professor at the University of Houston Not all heroes wear the uniform of war. In the United States, however, we take particular pride in recognizing as heroes those who have served in the military. Yet while we honor our veterans with holidays, parades, discounts at retail stores and restaurants, and endless political rhetoric about their sacrifice and bravery, we do a pitiful job of respecting their freedoms and caring for their needs once out of uniform. Despite the fact that the U.S. boasts more than 20 million veterans who have served in World War II through the present day, the plight of veterans today is America's badge of shame, with large numbers of veterans impoverished, unemployed, traumatized mentally and physically, struggling with depression, suicide, and marital stress, homeless, subjected to sub-par treatment at clinics and hospitals, and left to...

This is a long read but it's important information. Antibiotic resistant pathogens are a huge problem in Afghanistan. This was a huge problem for the military, with troops frequently acquiring drug resistant infections in blast wounds. The military has largely overcome it, but the civilian population is severely affected. This article also notes that Afghanistan has among the worst health care and public health systems in the world:

One woman dies every two hours from pregnancy-related causes, according to conservative estimates by Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders), and one in 25 newborn babies dies, the third highest neonatal death rate in the world, UNICEF figures show.
Life expectancy at birth is 64, compared with 79 in the US and a global average of 72. There is a shortage of doctors, especially in rural areas, and infection control is poor.
Drug resistance has become one of the world's greatest public health crises, estimated to cause 700,000 deaths worldwide and expected to kill 10 million by 2050 if no action is taken.
Fueling the superbug problem in Afghanistan is the unregulated sale of antibiotics in human medicine and in agriculture. Drugs are advertised on television and available to buy over the counter from pharmacies without a prescription or diagnosis from a doctor.
Fighting between Taliban and a local militia kills 40 civilians in Uruzgan and Ghazni.

I don't normally link to PressTV but this story has corroboration and the PressTV version is the most accessible I could find. Taliban attack a border post in Farah and kill at least 20 border police, capturing the post. This is on the border with Iran.

UN says 56 civilians killed and 379 injured in violence associated with the recent elections.

In Iraqtalks are underway between the PUK and KDP to form a new Kurdish regional government.

UN reports more than 200 mass graves found in areas formerly controlled by IS. The process of exhumation is just beginning.

Multiple bombings in Baghdad kill 6 civilians. These targeted predominantly Shiite districts.

Newly elected Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi says that the Shiite militias known as Popular Mobilization Forces will not be disbanded. Most of these are linked to Iran.

Abdul-Mahdi is apparently ready to announce his slate of ministers.  Minor posts have been filled but the major appointments have been held up in political disputes.

          The United States and the Middle East nations are bracing themselves for the sanctions that will be reimplemented on Iran      Cache   Translate Page      
Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Ken yesterday I got a Twitter from Potus President of the United States Donald Trump he made the statement that the United States was going to re-implement the sanctions on Iran. So I guess now that means that the United States and Middle Eastern forces are going to brace for trouble over these new or renewed Iranian sanctions.

KT: Well it’s certainly possible the Iranians themselves are making a lot of noise about this. They’re calling the United States an illegal power where as they are legal and they are respecting the world order. They claim that we are not because these sanctions have not been approved by the United Nations. But the Iranians also know that they will pay a very high price for any direct attack on US forces in the Middle East.

Now they could attack us indirectly they could for example reinforce those Shabbat militia that I was telling you about in northern Iraq that are outside of Mosul that are in the Nineveh plain. They could also conduct provocative actions along the land bridge into Syria and on to the Lebanese border with Israel. There’s lots of things Iran can do. They have many many military forces throughout the region. I happen to think they’re a little bit over extended but I do not see them launching any kind of direct attack against the US. I think they know very well that the price would be very high.

JD: And that land bridge you’re talking about includes Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon all the way from Iran to the Mediterranean and that’s key for what their plans are for the future.

KT: That’s correct. Absolutely, and they’ve been testing that since last December when they opened it for the first time. We’ve been talking about that regularly here on this broadcast. You don’t hear a lot of people in the national media talk about it but it’s a very important event.

JD: Ken Timmerman and his insights on what Iran’s response may well be as the United States re-implaments the sanctions on the Islamic State of Iran.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Remember President Trump withdrew from the Iranian nuclear deal. As of today the United States has applied sanctions once again on Iran. The Middle East nations and the United States are braced for Iran’s reactions. We don’t know what Iran will be willing to do. We do know however that as we move deeper and deeper into the last days Iran will become a major player as foretold by the ancient Jewish prophets Daniel and Ezekiel, that was Daniel 11:44 and Ezekiel 38:5 where Iran is mentioned as Persia.

The stage is set for these prophecies to be fulfilled.

Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Washington Foreign Press Center
Washington, DC
November 5, 2018


MODERATOR: Good morning, everyone, and welcome to the Foreign Press Center. We are pleased to have with us this morning Secretary Pompeo and Secretary Mnuchin. They’ll both have some opening remarks and then hopefully we’ll have time for one or two questions afterwards.

Secretary Pompeo, please.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Hey, Robert. Thank you. Good morning, everyone. It’s great to be here at the Foreign Press Center. It’s great to see you all. In May of this year, after President Trump withdrew from the nuclear deal, the Trump administration announced a new strategy to fundamentally alter the behavior of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s leadership. At the center of this effort – and there are multiple lines of effort – but at the center of it is an unprecedented campaign of economic pressure. Our objective is to starve the Iranian regime of the revenue it uses to fund violent and destabilizing activities throughout the Middle East, and indeed around the world.

Our ultimate goal is to convince the regime to abandon its current revolutionary course. Just look at what happened last week. Denmark announced it had uncovered an Iranian regime assassination plot on its own soil. The Iranian regime has a choice. It can either do a 180-degree turn from its outlaw course of action and act like a normal country, or it can see its economy crumble.

We hope a new agreement with Iran is possible, but until Iran makes changes in the 12 ways that I listed in May, we will be relentless in exerting pressure on the regime. As a reflection of that resolve, today we’re reimposing all sanctions that were previously lifted under the nuclear deal. This includes sanctions on energy, banking, shipping, and shipbuilding industries.

Since the Trump administration came into office, we’ve done 19 rounds of sanctions targeting 168 Iranian entities. Today’s sanctions will accelerate the rapid decline of international economic activity in Iran since the implementation of our strategy in May. Since that time, since back in May, over 100 companies have withdrawn from Iran or canceled plans to do business there. It should be noted that if a company evades our sanctions regime and secretly continues sanctionable commerce in the Islamic Republic, the United States will levy severe, swift penalties on it, including potential sanctions. I promise you that doing business with Iran in defiance of our sanctions will ultimately be a much more painful business decision than pulling out of Iran and it – being connected to Iran entirely.

More than 20 importing nations have zeroed out their imports of crude oil already, taking more than one million barrels of crude per day off the market. The regime today, since May, has lost over $2.5 billion in oil revenue. We have decided to issue temporary allotments to a handful of countries responsible to specific circumstances and to ensure a well-supplied oil market. The U.S. will be granting these exemptions to China, India, Italy, Greece, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Turkey. Each of those countries has already demonstrated significant reductions of the purchase of Iranian crude over the past six months, and indeed two of those eight have already completely ended imports of Iranian crude and will not resume as long as the sanctions regime remains in place. We continue negotiations to get all of the nations to zero.

Additionally today, 100 percent of the revenue Iran receives from the sale of oil will be held in foreign accounts. Iran can only use this money for humanitarian trade or bilateral – in bilateral nonsanctioned goods.

Speaking of Iran’s nuclear program, we have decided to grant narrow and temporary waivers that permit the continuation of three nonproliferation projects currently underway. Allowing these activities to continue for the time being will improve ongoing oversight of Iran’s civil nuclear program and make these facilities less susceptible to illicit and illegal nuclear uses. Rest assured Iran will never come close to getting a nuclear weapon on President Trump’s watch.

I will now turn it over to Secretary Mnuchin.

SECRETARY MNUCHIN: Thank you. Today the United States is executing on the final actions to withdraw on the Obama administration’s fatally flawed Iran deal. This morning, we will fully impose sanctions on the Iranian regime. This is part of a maximum unprecedented economic pressure campaign the United States is waging against the world’s largest state sponsor of terror. Today we sanctioned more than 700 individuals, entities, aircraft, and vessels as part of Treasury’s largest ever single day action targeting Iran. Over 300 of those sanctions are new targets. In addition, we are relisting hundreds of individuals and entities that were previously sanctioned, granted sanctions relief under the JCPOA.

These powerful sanctions directly target Iran’s banking, energy, and shipping sectors. The Iranian regime has funneled billions of dollars for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps force through the banking sector. Today’s designation includes 50 Iranian banks and their foreign and domestic subsidiaries in conduction with Iran’s regime support for international terrorism, proliferation of mass destruction, or their means of delivery and human rights abuses.

Our actions include the identification of more than 400 targets, including over 200 persons and vessels in Iran’s shipping and energy sector; Iran Air, the national airline of Iran, and more than 65 aircraft; the placement of nearly 250 persons in associated block properties on the Specially Designated Nationals list; the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran.

Over the last five months, Treasury has implemented some of the most impactful sanctions ever seen. Combined with the previous actions, more than 900 Iran-related targets have been sanctioned under this administration in less than two years, marking the highest-ever level of U.S. economic pressure on Iran. We are making it abundantly clear to the Iranian regime that they will face mounting financial isolation until they fundamentally change their destabilizing behavior.

Iran’s leaders must cease support for terrorism and end destructive regional activities immediately. They must stop ballistic missiles and abandon their nuclear ambitions if they seek a path to sanctions relief. We are watching the Iranian regime with laser focus. If they try to evade our sanctions, we will take action to disrupt their activity time and time again.

The maximum pressure exerted by the United States is only going to mount from here. Companies around the world need to know we will be strictly enforcing our sanctions. Thank you.

MODERATOR: That – we’ll have time for a few questions. Let’s go to Sky News, Cordelia Lynch.

QUESTION: Hello, this is a question for Secretary Pompeo. The President invoked Game of Thrones when he was discussing sanctions. Do you think that was appropriate?

SECRETARY POMPEO: This administration has been consistent from, frankly, President Trump’s campaign to the first day he was inaugurated about our intention. We understand that the Islamic Republic of Iran presents a threat to the United States of America, and we are determined to stop it. And much has been made about this Game of Thrones. Qasem Soleimani responded, and I haven’t seen any of you comment on that. This is a man who has American blood on his hands. He’s killed American soldiers, and that’s not funny. And the actions that the Islamic Republic of Iran are taking are not about little silly things that people get wrapped up here in Washington, D.C., but about very serious matters that impact all of Europe, all the Middle East and the world, and our young men and women who are in harm’s way today.

MODERATOR: Thank you, sir. Next question is going to be Asahi Shimbun, Yuko Lanham. Yuko?

All right. We’re going to move on to EFE, Beatriz Pascual Macias.

QUESTION: Hi, thank you very much. Thank you very much. I was wondering, what could you say to the European countries that were expecting to be in this list of countries that are not going to suffer the sanctions? And what kind of relation have you have with them, what are the conversations regarding this topic? Thank you.

SECRETARY POMPEO: You want to talk about on the financial side, Steven?

SECRETARY MNUCHIN: Well, I don’t think we’ve ever said that it relates to the European countries, that they’ll be exempt. I think quite the contrary. We’ve said that we expect them to honor the sanctions. Having said that, there are certain transactions that they can continue to do, whether they’re humanitarian transactions or specific trade in the restricted accounts. And again, let me just emphasize, as I said last week, we will make sure that humanitarian transactions are really going for those purposes. So this is not about hurting the people of Iran, but we will not let money be diverted to humanitarian purposes and then put for terrorist activities.

SECRETARY POMPEO: And then just to follow up, with respect to the relationship, we’ve been very candid and clear with all of the European countries. There are more than three, we should note. Many of them are fully supportive of what it is that we are undertaking. They have taken a different approach with respect to the JCPOA, but it is also something that the whole world should know. European businesses have already made their decisions. They’ve decided not to do business with the Islamic Republic of Iran, and so we’re very confident that the sanctions regime that we’re putting in place will be effective.

MODERATOR: Al Jazeera English, James Bays.

QUESTION: James Bays from Al Jazeera English. You talk about the destabilizing behavior of Iran in the region. How does that differ from the behavior of Saudi Arabia?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So let me just go through the list: Underwriting Lebanese Hizballah, that presents a threat to the United States of America and Israel; underwriting the Houthis in Yemen, causing an enormous conflict to take place there in that country; the efforts in Iraq to undermine the Iraqi Government, funding Shia militias that are not in the best interests of the Iraqi people; their efforts in Syria; the list goes on. The difference in behavior between those two countries is remarkable. Since we’ve taken office, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been very supportive of our efforts on counterterrorism. They’ve assisted us. I know Secretary Mnuchin has worked with them on a couple of projects as well. It is completely clear the Islamic Republican of Iran is the destabilizing force in the Middle East today.

Do you want to add to that?

SECRETARY MNUCHIN: No, I think it’s well said.

MODERATOR: Last question. Let’s go to TASS, Dmitry Kirsanov.

QUESTION: Thank you. Gentlemen, thanks a lot for coming over to brief us. For Secretary Pompeo. Sir, you mentioned that three waivers have been issued for the civilian nuclear energy project. Could you clarify what those are? And Bushehr nuclear power plant, will it be the one under the waiver? Thank you.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you. That’s a great question. It’s a pretty complicated area, that nonproliferation issue. There are three. Bushehr is one of the three. But if I may, we will get out a full fact sheet on that here in the next hour or so that you’ll all be able to see. What we’ve authorized is very narrow, very limited, very time limited as well, but important nonetheless that these nonproliferation projects are not things that are taking place without some ability to see what’s going on, and we’ll give you the full details of the scope of those waivers.

MODERATOR: We have time for – this is the last one. Let’s go right to the front, right here, please.

QUESTION: Thank you. Roj Zalla with RUDAW TV in Iraqi Kurdistan. Mr. Secretary, Iran has very powerful hands in Iraq. Are you not concerned that with these sanctions Iran might increase the pressure on some of your allies in Iraq? And in that case, what can you do to reassure those allies?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So it’s a very reasonable question. Here’s the facts. Since the United States entered the JCPOA in 2015, Iran has turned up the heat on those very entities to which you’re referring. So we have a history, we have data set, we have a historical basis upon which to say that we know that the JCPOA didn’t impede Iran one bit from putting pressure on Kurdistan, pressure in Baghdad, pressure throughout the region. We are very hopeful that the set of efforts we’re undertaking – we’ve focused here on the financial and economic, but the full range of efforts we’re taking to push back against the Islamic Republic of Iran will have the intended effect of reducing Iran’s capacity to be destabilizing and present risk to the Middle East, to Europe, and the world.

MODERATOR: With that, that concludes this morning’s briefing. Thank you very much to Secretaries Pompeo and Mnuchin.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you all

MODERATOR: Thank you, sir. Thank you all

          SundanceTV exibe filmes da seleção do Festival de Sundance a partir deste sábado      Cache   Translate Page      
A SundanceTV vai exibir entre 10 e 12 de novembro uma seleção de filmes que fizeram parte da programação do Festival de Sundance nos últimos anos. A maratona começa às 16h30 do dia 10, sábado, e termina às 16h30 do dia 12, segunda-feira.

Destaques:

Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny / EUA / Diretores: Louis Black e Karen Bernstein


Destacando um dos mais inovadores diretores americanos, este filme mostra o caminho percorrido pelo autor, desde suas raízes de cidade pequena do Texas até a sua calorosa recepção no circuito de prêmios. Muito antes de dirigir Boyhood: Da Infância à Juventude, o intenso desejo de criar de Richard Linklater alimentou o seu trabalho fora do circuito de Hollywood. Em vez de sair do Texas, ele escolheu colaborar com artistas com mentalidade semelhante à sua, criando filmes modestos e de baixo orçamento no estilo DIY (Faça Você Mesmo). Os diretores Louis Black e Karen Bernstein tecem discussões esclarecedoras com Linklater em meio a depoimentos de atores, de gente que faz parte de sua equipe desde o início e de profissionais do setor. Ao longo de sua carreira, Linklater trabalhou com um mesmo núcleo de artistas, elevando o perfil tanto dos atores como o do cinema independente em pleno desenvolvimento de Austin.

Elenco: Julie Delpy, Ethan Hawke, Sahsa Lane, Shia LaBeouf

10/11, 16h30; 12/11, 15h10
A Vida Sem Grace / EUA / Diretor: James C Strouse


Este filme contemplativo e subestimado dramatiza a crise silenciosa que atinge Stanley, um jovem do meio-Oeste casado com uma fuzileira naval que serve no Iraque e pai de duas meninas. Stanley fica viúvo de maneira repentina e inesperada quando sua esposa, Grace, morre em ação. Ele não consegue compartilhar a arrasadora notícia com suas filhas. Em vez de contar imediatamente, Stanley internaliza seu desespero e viaja com as meninas. Nesse meio tempo, tenta organizar uma enxurrada de sentimentos conflituosos e tumultuados a respeito da guerra e tenta decidir como dar a terrível notícia. A viagem inevitavelmente terminará com o funeral de Grace. A Vida Sem Grace recebeu o Prêmio do Público – Drama e também o Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award no Sundance Film Festival de 2007.

Elenco: John Cusack, Emily Churchill, Rebecca Spence

11/11, 18h45; 12/11, 7h

Na Mira Do Chefe / EUA / Diretor: Martin McDonagh

Colin Farrell e o indicado ao Oscar® Ralph Fiennes protagonizam a nervosa e ultrajante comédia de malandragem cheia de ação que os críticos chamaram de “descontroladamente divertida”. 

Elenco:  Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Ralph Fiennes, Clémence Poésy 

10/11, 22h

Jacqueline Argentine / EUA / Diretor e Roteirista: Bernardo Britto


Um cineasta nos apresenta ao tema do seu documentário - a bela Jacqueline Dumont, uma jovem francesa que alega ter descoberto uma conspiração secreta de assassinato. Embora não tivesse certeza da veracidade da excêntrica Jacqueline, o cineaste, ainda assim, recruta alguns estagiários e ruma para o retiro holístico, na Argentina, onde ela se esconde, para explorar suas afirmações e filmar sua história. Após a chegada, o cineasta começa a duvidar se a sua empreitada vale mesmo a pena, mas encontra razões para esperar que possa realmente estar capturando algo grande, algo real, com seu filme cada vez mais improvisado. Movido pelo desempenho secamente espirituoso de Wyatt Cenac como o cineasta sem nome, Jacqueline (Argentine) é uma discreta e divertida desventura, que também explora criteriosamente a relação ambígua de um diretor com o seu ofício e continuamente vira a sua base de thriller político de cabeça para baixo. A primeira direção de um longa-metragem de Bernardo Britto (vencedor do Prêmio do Júri no Sundance Film Festival de 2014 com seu curta Yearbook) faz um novo uso do formato documentário para criar um filme lúdico em forma e conteúdo que reflete as incertezas e a esperança inerentes a todo esforço artístico.

Elenco:  Camille Rutherford, Wyatt Cenac, James Benson, Martin Anderson, Sarah Willis e Enrique Dura

11/11, 20h20; 12/11, 3h35
  
Kumiko, a Caçadora de Tesouros/ EUA / Diretor: David Zellner


Uma cansada mulher japonesa se convence de que uma sacola de dinheiro enterrada e perdida em um filme de ficção – Fargo, dos irmãos Coen - seja, de fato, real. Com um mapa do tesouro toscamente desenhado e pouca preparação, ela foge de sua vida estruturada em Tóquio e embarca em uma busca imprudente pela tundra do Minnesota, em busca de sua mítica fortuna. Entre os caracteres estranhos, mas benignos, que ela encontra no caminho são um guia de turismo nascido de novo e um xerife assistente desajeitado, mas solícito. Charmoso, excêntrico e inspirado, Kumiko, a Caçadora de Tesouros é um intrigante road movie sobre a obsessão mórbida. O filme transporta os espectadores para a psique cada vez mais desgastada da sua determinada protagonista, e é um delicado retrato observado de perto da lenta implosão mental de uma mulher. Rinko Kikuchi no papel-título diz muito pouco, mas sua linguagem corporal, um lento arrastar debruçado, é incrivelmente eloquente por si só. Kumiko, a Caçadora de Tesouros recebeu o Prêmio Especial do Júri - Dramático no Sundance Film Festival de 2014.

Elenco:  Rinko Kikuchi, Nobuyuki Katsube, Shirley Venard

10/11, 18h10; 11/11, 15h05, 12/11, 13h15

Dinosaur 13 / EUA / Diretor: Todd Douglas Miller

Quando o paleontólogo Peter Larson e sua equipe do Black Hills Institute fizeram a maior descoberta de dinossauros do mundo em 1990, sabiam que aquele seria o achado de toda uma vida; os maiores e mais completos restos mortais de um Tyrannosaurus Rex já encontrados. Mas durante uma batalha de 10 anos com o governo dos EUA, grandes museus, tribos indígenas e paleontólogos, eles lutam não apenas para manter o seu dinossauro, mas também por sua liberdade. Dinosaur 13 narra uma saga sem precedentes na história americana e detalha a batalha feroz para possuir um tesouro de 65 milhões de anos de idade. Com sua grande habilidade, o cineasta Todd Miller escava camada após camada, expondo a emoção humana em um conto dramático que é tão complexo quanto fascinante.
O filme foi nomeado para o Grande Prêmio do Júri - Documentário no Sundance Film Festival de 2014.

Elenco:  Stan Adelstein, Lanice Archer, Robert Bakker, Vincent Black Feather

11/11, 13h20; 12/11, 11h30

Bob and the Trees / EUA e França/ Diretor: Diego Ongaro

É pleno inverno na área rural de Massachusetts. Bob, um lenhador de 50 anos de idade com um fraco por golfe e gangsta rap, luta para fazer face às despesas em um setor difícil e implacável. Quando um investimento malfeito ameaça os negócios da família e a sua amada vaca é ferida, Bob começa a ouvir os instintos de sua consciência cada vez mais tenebrosa. Bob and the Trees é uma imersão em uma vida tranquila de isolamento e desespero. O filme é uma versão expandida de um curta-metragem de 2011 do mesmo nome, e o protagonista, Bob Tarasuk, é um ator não profissional - e um lenhador na vida real. Com um sentido primordial de autenticidade e uma narrativa poderosa que se baseia claramente nos eventos da vida real, o filme é um exame do comportamento arrogante em face do fracasso pessoal. Bob and the Trees foi uma Seleção Oficial do Sundance Film Festival de 2015.

Elenco: Bob Tarasuk, Matt Gallagher, Polly MacIntyre

12/11, 5h15

Dreamcatcher / Reino Unido e EUA / Diretor: Kim Longinotto


No West Side de Chicago, nas primeiras horas da manhã, uma van de doze assentos com as palavras “Dreamcatcher Foundation” estampada em todos os seus lados circula pelas ruas pouco iluminadas. As duas mulheres na van são Brenda e Stephanie, sobreviventes do comércio do sexo. A van diminui a velocidade à medida que se aproxima de uma jovem. Brenda se inclina para fora e chama, “Ei linda, você precisa de alguns preservativos?” Essa cena de abertura remete o espectador imediatamente para o mundo escuro, angustiante e incrivelmente comovente do documentário Dreamcatcher. Este retrato íntimo examina uma comunidade problemática pelos olhos de uma de suas sobreviventes, Brenda Myers-Powell. Brenda cresceu em Chicago, virou uma prostituta adolescente, tornou-se dependente de drogas e, anos mais tarde, depois de escapar do seu modo de vida, criou The Dreamcatcher Foundation para ajudar as meninas a aprender que não precisam usar o sexo para sobreviver. Sua experiência, combinada com sua irresistível personalidade, faz dela um farol de esperança, colocando-a numa posição única para ajudar outras mulheres traficadas a recuperarem suas vidas. Dreamcatcher recebeu o Prêmio de Direção – Documentário de Cinema Mundial no Sundance Film Festival de 2015.

Elenco:  Brenda Myers-Powell, Stephanie Daniels-Wilson

He has deployed active duty assets of the United States military including elements of the 101st and 82nd Airborne, The 4th Infantry division.

Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, Nov 6, 2018 / 04:01 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Police in Papua New Guinea are moving sick refugees and migrants out of the capital city in preparation for a major economic conference, drawing ongoing criticism from the country’s Catholic leaders.

The refugees and migrants are being sent back to Manus Island off the northern coast of the country, where asylum seekers trying to reach Australia are being housed in poor conditions.

The Australian government has sent hundreds of asylum seekers to the island for processing since 2012, and around 70 men had been taken to Port Moresby, the capital, for medical treatment.

As many as 10 of the men being moved had not finished their treatment, but were told they would return in a month to complete it, Guardian Australia reported. One man reportedly attempted suicide after he was told he would be sent back to Manus Island without treatment.

Authorities are justifying the move by saying that the city’s hospital is needed for Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference delegates and conference employees who may need medical treatment. APEC is scheduled to begin meetings in Port Moresby Nov. 12.

The Papua New Guinea Bishop’s Conference recently called for all the refugees and asylum seekers to be brought to Australia by Dec. 25, saying that their country cannot continue to provide adequate care.

“We are deeply concerned that the human rights of the refugees and asylum seekers have been breached as they were forcibly sent to [Papua New Guinea]; and Australia's policies has caused us reputational damage,” a panel convened by the bishops wrote Nov. 1.

“We, the participants are speaking on behalf of the women and children on Manus who are the victims of Australia's policies. The men have suffered enough from prolonged detention. Enough is enough. The time has come to let them go.”

About 650 migrant and refugee men are currently living on Manus Island, according to The Guardian. Conditions are bad, according to Behrouz Boochani, a Kurdish Iranian journalist, who said the men are suffering widely from mental and physical illness. The conditions at the camps have been condemned by Church leaders and human rights groups.

Australia has had a system of “third country processing” since 2012 for asylum seekers who come to Australia by boat without a valid visa. The system transfers the asylum seekers to other countries, where they are processed based on that country’s laws.

Many of those seeking asylum in Australia come from Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Iraq, and Iran, travelling by boat from Indonesia. They are typically intercepted by the Australian navy before reaching land, and are then sent to detention camps in Papua New Guinea and Nauru, a small Micronesian nation.

The government of Australia made an agreement with the government of Papua New Guinea in 2013, providing that migrants sent to Papua New Guinea from Australia would be settled there if they are found to be refugees. Otherwise they would be sent back to their country of origin or another country where they have legal residence.

Papua New Guinea is facing a medication shortage, an outbreak of polio, increased rates of tuberculosis, and funding crises in health and education, according to The Guardian.

          Comment on Anti-Semitism in America by Fred Skolnik      Cache   Translate Page      
Morocco: The country that suffered from the worst series of massacres. In the 8th century whole communities were wiped out by Idris the First. In 1033, in the city of Fez, 6,000 Jews were murdered by a Muslim mob. The rise of the Almohad dynasty caused waves of mass murders. According to testimony from that time, 100,000 Jews were slaughtered in Fez and about 120,000 in Marrakesh (this testimony should be viewed with caution). In 1465, another massacre took place in Fez, which spread to other cities in Morocco. There were pogroms in Tetuan in 1790 and 1792, in which children were murdered, women were raped and property was looted. Between 1864 and 1880, there were a series of pogroms against the Jews of Marrakesh, in which hundreds were slaughtered. In 1903, there were pogroms in two cities, Taza and Settat, in which over 40 Jews were killed. In 1907, there was a pogrom in Casablanca in which 30 Jews were killed and many women were raped. In 1912, there was another massacre in Fez in which 60 Jews were killed and about 10,000 were left homeless. In 1948, another series of pogroms began against the Jews which led to the slaughter of 42 in the cities of Oujda and Jrada. Algeria: A series of massacres occurred in 1805, 1815 and 1830. The situation of the Jews improved with the start of the French conquest in 1830, but that did nor prevent anti-Jewish outbursts in the 1880s. The situation deteriorated again with the rise of the Vichy government. Even before 1934, the country was permeated by Nazi influences, which led to the slaughter of 25 Jews in the city of Constantine. When it achieved independence in 1962, laws were passed against citizenship for anyone who was not a Muslim and their property was effectively confiscated. Most of the Jews left, usually completely penniless, together with the French ("pieds noirs"). Libya: In 1785, hundreds of Jews were murdered by Burza Pasha. Under Nazi influence, harassment of the Jews intensified. Jewish property in Benghazi was plundered, thousands were sent to camps and about 500 Jews were killed. In 1945, at the end of World War II, a program against the Jews began and the number of murdered reached 140. The New York Times reported the horrible scenes of babies and old people who had been beaten to death. In the riots that broke out in 1948, the Jews were more prepared, so only 14 were killed. Following the Six Day War, riots broke out once again and 17 Jews were slaughtered. Iraq: A massacre occurred in Basra in 1776. The situation of the Jews improved under British rule in 1917, but this improvement ended with Iraq's independence in 1932. German influences increased and reached a peak in 1941 in the pogrom known as Farhud, in which 182 Jews were slaughtered (according to historian Elie Kedourie, 600 people were actually murdered) and thousands of houses were pillaged. Those were the days of Haj Amin al Husseini, who preached violence against the Jews. After the establishment of the State of Israel, the Iraqi parliament acted according to the Arab League bill and in 1950 and froze the assets of Jews. Sanctions were imposed on those who remained in Iraq. The Farhud massacre and the harassment from 1946 to 1949 to all intents and purposes turned the Iraqi Jews into exiles and refugees. The few thousand who remained in Iraq suffered from harsh edicts. In 1967, 14 Iraqis were sentenced to death on trumped up charges of espionage. Among them were 11 Jews. Radio Iraq invited the masses to the hanging festivities. Syria: The first blood libel in a Muslim country occurred in 1840, and led to the kidnapping and torture of dozens of Jewish children, sometimes to the point of death, and a pogrom against the Jews. In 1986, the Syrian Minister of Defense, Mustafa Talas, published a book, "The Matzah of Zion," in which he claims that the Jews did, indeed, use the blood of a Christian monk to bake matzah. Same old anti-Semitism, new edition. Other pogroms occurred in Aleppo in 1850 and in 1875, in Damascus in 1848 and in 1890, in Beirut in 1862 and in 1874, and in Dir al Kamar there was another blood libel which also led to a pogrom in 1847. That year, there was a pogrom against the Jews of Jerusalem, which was the result of that blood libel. In 1945, the Jews of Aleppo suffered severe pogroms. 75 Jews were murdered and the community was destroyed. There was a resurgence of the violence in 1947, which turned most of the Syrian Jews into refugees. Those who remained there lived for many years as hostages. Iran: There was a pogrom against the Jews of Mashhad in 1839. A mob was incited to attack Jews, and slaughtered almost 40. The rest were forced to convert. That is how the Marranos of Mashhad came into being. In 1910, there was a blood libel in Shiraz in which 30 Jews were murdered and all Jewish homes were pillaged. Yemen: There were fluctuations in relations that ranged between tolerance and inferior subsistence, between harassment and pogroms. The Rambam's Letter to Yemen was sent following a letter he received from the leader of the Yemeni Jews, describing edicts of forced conversion issued against the Jews (1173). There were further waves of apostasy edicts which cannot be detailed here for lack of space. One of the worst milestones was the Mawza exile. Three years after Imam Al Mahdi took power in 1676, he drove the Jews into one of the most arid districts of Yemen. According to various accounts, 60 — 75% of the Jews died as a result of the exile. Many and varied edicts were imposed on the Jews, differing only in severity. One of the harshest was the Orphans' Edict, which ordered the forced conversion of orphaned children to Islam. In nearby Aden, which was under British rule, pogroms occurred in 1947 which took the lives of 82 Jews. 106 of the 170 shops that were owned by Jews were completely destroyed. Hundreds of houses and all the community's buildings were burned down. Egypt: As in the other Arab countries, the Jews of Egypt also suffered inferior status for hundreds of years. A significant improvement occurred when Muhammad Ali came to power in 1805. The testimony of French diplomat, Edmond Combes, leaves nothing in doubt: "To the Muslims, no race is more worthy of contempt than the Jewish race." Another diplomat added, "The Muslims do not hate any other religion the way they hate that of the Jews." Following the blood libel in Damascus, similar libels began to spread in Egypt as well and incited mobs to carry out a series of attacks: in Cairo in 1844, 1890, and in 1901-1902; and Alexandria in 1870, 1882 and in 1901-1907. Similar attacks also occurred in Port Said and in Damanhur. Later on, there were riots against the Jews at the end of World War II, in 1945, in which 10 were killed and hundreds were injured. In 1947, the Companies Law was passed, which severely damaged Jewish businesses and led to the confiscation of property. In 1948, following the UN resolution on partition, riots began in Cairo and Alexandria. The dead numbered between 80 and 180. Tens of thousands were forced to leave, many fleeing and abandoning their property. The lot of those who remained did not improve. In 1956, a law was passed in Egypt which effectively denied the Jews citizenship, forcing them to leave the country with no property. This was an act of pure expulsion and mass property confiscation.
