The United States will exempt China, India and Japan from oil sanctions on Iran, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday, while vowing to be “relentless” in pressuring Tehran. Pompeo listed eight places that will enjoy temporary waivers from a ban on all oil transactions with Iran: China, Taiwan, India, Italy, Greece, Japan, South Korea and Turkey. Earlier in the day, the administration reimposed sanctions on Iran’s energy, banking, shipbuilding and shipping sectors to...
          Why Not Vote? Anarchists and Libertarians Weigh In      Cache   Translate Page      
Conscientious non-voters have many reasons for not voting. Don't listen to them. by Katie Herzog

You'd think after nearly 250 years we'd have this voting thing down by now, yet all across the country Americans are once again marking Election Day by waiting in long-ass lines. (Except, that is, for the three enlightened states that have adopted vote-by-mail, which, coincidentally, were also the first three states to legalize weed.)

Voter participation is expected to be record high this week, but voting rates in the U.S. are still abysmally low compared to many countries. Australia, where voting is mandatory, ranks at the top of the heap, followed by Malta, Chile, Belgium, Italy, and Luxembourg, all of which have a voter turnout of over 90 percent. On the lower end, you have Russia, Switzerland, Pakistan, and the United States, where, on a good year, only around 60 percent of eligible voters show up. Why doesn’t nearly half the popular vote? I suspect it's because most people just don't give a shit and their stories are on. If you asked this apathetic portion of the populace who the Attorney General is, I’m guessing they'd say, "What army?" But there's also a population of people who do give a fuck but who still opt not to participate in this particular part of the civic process: conscientious non-voters.

For some conscientious non-voters, it all comes down to who's running. A 53-year-old home-builder who is primarily concerned about government spending (and who benefits from it) told me that he will "vote again when we have a viable third party that values freedom for all, not just the ones whose ideas they favor but especially for those who have ideas they despise." He will not, he added, "vote again until I see politicians that understand and prioritize spending within our means."

I also spoke with a 28-year-old conservative who told me that he was so disappointed in Obama's victories in 2008 and 2012 that the prospect of getting invested and losing again just isn't worth it. Another non-voter, an anarchist and philosophy PhD student, said that voting is damaging because it allows people to "focus on policy and what people in power do instead of what they can do themselves." When I asked what the public should do about policies they disagree with—for example, separating and imprisoning immigrant families—he advocated for direct action like assisting immigrants at border crossings instead. "Voting does matter in the aggregate," he said, "but it doesn't matter if you are talking about the individual.”

This point—that individual votes don't matter—is also made by Katherine Mangu-Ward, the editor-in-chief of Reason, the libertarian magazine based in Washington, D.C. For her, it all comes down to numbers. "You are very, very, very, very, very, very unlikely to be a decisive vote," Katherine said. "Your vote turning the outcome of an election is vanishingly rare, whereas, there are all kinds of things you can do with the hour or two hours of your time that it takes you to vote that are objectively, clearly good."

When I asked Katherine if voting took less time—if she could, say, vote-by-mail, which takes about as much time as walking to your mailbox—she would still feel it’s a waste of time, she said that there are other, more affirmative arguments against voting. "If you think the system is basically corrupt or broken, I think there's a very strong case to make that you actually have a duty not to vote."

On that, we disagree. Democracy isn't inherently corrupt. It's corrupt when the people running it are corrupt, and one of the only means of swaying who is steering the ship is to show up and vote. Sure, your individual vote might not change the outcome of an election, but as Kant would argue, if everyone failed to vote, the system itself would fail. For some non-voters (for instance, the anarchist philosophy student), that may be the goal, but Katherine says she's not in favor of the collapse of the system as we know it. Rather, she prefers to participate in the system in other ways, including calling her elected representatives.

Still, I'm not convinced. Sure, calling your representative is one way to be heard, but if your representative is, say, a rabid, God-fearing, conservative who thinks non-Christians should burn on Earth and will burn in hell, he's probably not going to listen when you call up and demand he vote in favor of access to abortion. Same if you're represented by a member of the DSA and you've got a complaint about tax rates on the rich. So what can you, as an individual, actually do? Show up to vote. Your particular vote might not change the election, but the collective vote does, and the collective is just a bunch of individuals taking action.

Now, I understand why people don't trust the system. Just look at recent history, namely the 2000 and 2016 presidential elections, both of which were ultimately won by the person who got fewer votes. But the only way to correct the system is to elect candidates who will at least try and fix it—and right now, there's only one party in the running that is even remotely interested in that. The other side is busy starting trade wars and locking up children. When the stakes are this high, when the chance to curb Donald Trump comes down to our ballots, I don’t see how not voting can be morally justified—unless, that is, you vote Republican. In that case: Listen to Katherine.

The Last Ship is part of the 2018/19 Mirvish Subscription Season.

The Last Ship, which was initially inspired by Sting's 1991 album The Soul Cages and his own childhood experiences, tells the story of a community amid the demise of the shipbuilding industry in Tyne and Wear, with the closure of the Swan Hunter shipyard.

When a sailor named Gideon Fletcher returns home after seventeen years at sea, tensions between past and future flare in both his family and his town. The local shipyard, around which the community has always revolved, is closing and no-one knows what will come next, only that a half-built ship towers over the terraces. With the engine fired and pistons in motion, picket lines are drawn as foreman Jackie White and his wife Peggy fight to hold their community together in the face of the gathering storm.

This personal, political and passionate new musical from multiple Grammy Award winner Sting, is an epic account of a family, a community and a great act of defiance. The Last Ship features an original score with music and lyrics by Sting as well as a few of his best-loved songs; Island of Souls, All This Timeand When We Dance. It is the proud story of when the last ship sails.

The show is directed by Lorne Campbell, the artistic director of Northern Stage and has set design by the Tony Award-winning 59 Productions- team behind the video design for the 2012 London Olympic Games.

The Last Ship has a new book by Lorne Campbell, original book by John Logan and Brian Yorkey, orchestrations by Rob Mathes, musical direction by Richard John, costume design by Molly Einchcomb, movement direction by Lucy Hind, lighting design by Matt Daw and sound design by Seb Frost. Other members of the creative team are dramaturg Selma Dimitrijevic, associate director Jake Smith, casting director Jenkins McShane Casting and associate musical director Sam Sommerfeld.

The Last Ship is produced by Karl Sydow and Kathryn Schenker.

Sting was born Gordon Matthew Sumner on 2 October, 1951 in Wallsend, North Tyneside, Tyne and Wear, England, the eldest of four children of Audrey (Cowell), a hairdresser, and Ernest Matthew Sumner, an engineer and milkman.


He grew up in the turmoil of the ship-building industry and wanted to become a musician very early having developed a love for the bass guitar. He played in jazz/rock bands such as "The Last Exit" and other various outfits, including a Dixieland jazz group, and in 1977, he formed the rock trio, The Police with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers.

In 1984, he went on to record solo albums, and has evolved in to one of the most prolific songwriters and musicians in the world. His latest album, 57th & 9th, was released in November, 2016 followed by the critically-acclaimed 57th& 9thWorld Tour which recently concluded having performed 115 concerts throughout North America, Asia, Latin America & Europe. Hailed "the show of a lifetime" (The Vancouver Globe & Mail), Sting: Live at The Olympia Paris will be released November 10 on DVD and captures the musician's guitar-driven rock tour as it hit the French capital at the iconic venue in April, 2017.

Throughout his illustrious career, Sting has sold close to 100 million albums from his combined work with The Police and as a solo artist. He has also delved into acting, having appeared in over 15 films such as Quadrophenia (1979) and Bring on the Night (1984) and has published a memoir entitled Broken Music in 2003, which spent 13 weeks on The New York Times Best Sellers list. He has received honorary Doctorate of Music degrees from Northumbria University in October 1992, Berklee College of Music in May 1994 and from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in 2006.

          SKILLS TO KILL - a New Spy Thriller from BRIAN DRAKE      Cache   Translate Page      

Ex-CIA agent Steve Dane and his lady love, ex-FSB (formerly KGB) agent Nina Talikova, enjoy each other’s company immensely, but aren’t really happy unless bullets are flying and things are blowing up around them.

That’s where author Brian Drake comes in—sending them hither and yon around the globe, and keeping them up to their necks in action.

Brian’s new book, Skills to Kill, the first published by Liberty Island, is actually four adventures for the price of one. It’s a four-part novel, tied together as a mission to catch a mysterious new arms dealer known only as “The Duchess.”

In each leg of their mission, Dane and Nina are aided by—or go up against—old friends from their many years in the spy biz.

The trail starts in Italy. What begins as a job to rescue the kidnapped daughter of a Mafia boss evolves into a race to recover a stolen SADM (otherwise known as a suitcase nuke). Then it’s off to Paris, where the main fly in the ointment is Dane’s former protégé, IRA alumnus Sean McFadden, who does his level best to kill them. After a side-trip to Greece, it’s off to Mexico, where a particularly vicious cartel—employing more weapons purchased from the Duchess—are terrorizing a big chunk of the country. The trail leads next to New York, where Dane and Nina run a scam on Nina’s Russian FSB mentor and foil a plot to embarrass Dane's old pal the President, then bop over to Helsinki for the final battle with McFadden and the Duchess. Busy bees, these. 

In between all the firefights, car chases and explosions, there’s plenty of entertaining sexual (and non-sexual) banter between Dane and Nina, a good deal of local color from each exotic locale, and a lot of attention to various sorts of exotic weapons. Adding to the festivities are song lyrics in the dialogue, thinly veiled references to that other super secret agent (you know, the British guy), and a nod to Raymond Chandler.  

But despite all the focus on action, Skills to Kill’s strongest point is the relationship between Dane and Nina. They are genuinely likeable characters, and when they’re having fun (which is most of the time) you will too.

          Immediate Implant Placement Into Fresh Extraction Sites Using Single-Drilling Bur and Two Loading Procedures: Follow-Up Results      Cache   Translate Page      
Modern clinical protocols in implantology aim at shortening the treatment time and reducing duration and discomfort of the surgical phase, while maintaining optimal treatment outcomes. The purpose of this study was to evaluate clinical outcomes of implants immediately placed in extraction sites, using a single drilling step for implant site preparation. One-hundred thirty-three patients (mean age 55.3 ± 12.7 [SD] years, range 20–83 years) were treated at 2 clinical centers. Two-hundred sixty-one implants were inserted in fresh postextraction sockets. One-hundred sixty-five implants were immediately loaded (IL) and 96 underwent delayed loading (DL). Implant survival, peri-implant bone level change and patients’ satisfaction were assessed after at least 3 years of function. No patient dropout occurred. The mean follow-up was 63.61 ± 11.52 months (range 39.71–85.71 months) from prosthesis delivery. Two IL and 1 DL implant failed in 3 patients. Implant survival was 98.8% and 99% for IL and DL group, respectively. The mean marginal bone loss after 1 year was 0.48 ± 0.40 mm and 0.52 ± 0.34 mm for IL and DL group. No biological nor mechanical complications occurred. All patients demonstrated full satisfaction. The present protocol with single burs for site preparation produced satisfactory clinical outcomes independent of the loading timing. Further long-term comparative studies are needed to confirm the present findings.

          Ewing Sarcoma Treatment Market to Witness Comprehensive Growth by 2025      Cache   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/06/2018 -- Ewing sarcoma is a destructive sarcoma of the soft tissue and the bones, which can occur at any age with the maximum rate of incidence recorded in young adults and adolescents. The treatment of Ewing sarcoma depends on multiple approaches, including risk-adapted, intensive, adjuvant and neo-adjuvant chemotherapies with radiotherapy and/or surgery for control of the possible metastatic and primary sites of the disease.

The optimization of Ewing sarcoma multiple modalities of therapeutic strategies has rose from efforts of numerous national and international groups in North America and Europe to form cooperation between medical oncologists and pediatrics. Ewing sarcoma is the second most frequently diagnosed form of primary bone cancer in children and young adults. The disease can occur in any individual at any age, but it is uncommon in people aged over 30 years. It develops most commonly in individuals aged between 10 and 20 years, who are witnessing rapid growth of bones.

Increasing incidence of Ewing sarcoma worldwide and initiatives taken by government organizations to reduce the rate of morbidity caused by Ewing sarcoma are factors driving the Ewing sarcoma treatment market. Currently, no approved treatments are available for Ewing sarcoma. This has led to increase in research and development activities to launch an approved treatment for Ewing sarcoma by leading players.

The global market for Ewing sarcoma treatment can be segmented based on type, diagnostic test, treatment, end-user, and geography. Based on type, the market has been categorized into extra osseous Ewing sarcoma, Askin tumor, and primitive neuroectodermal tumor. Extra osseous Ewing sarcoma is related with tumor in soft tissue, while Askin tumor is related with Ewing sarcoma that appears in the chest wall.

Primitive neuroectodermal tumor is related with Ewing sarcoma wherein cells looks like nerve cells. Based on diagnostic test, the Ewing sarcoma treatment market has been segmented into CT scan, MRI scan, biopsy of the bone marrow, and blood tests. Based on treatment, the market has been divided into chemotherapy, surgery, and radiotherapy. Based on end-user, the Ewing sarcoma treatment market has been classified into hospitals, cancer treating centers, and specialty clinics.

Request Report Brochure @ https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=B&rep_id=37700

Based on geography, the global Ewing sarcoma treatment market can be segmented into five major regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Furthermore, the North America Ewing Sarcoma treatment market has been sub-segmented into U.S. and Canada. The Ewing sarcoma treatment market in Europe has been sub-divided into Germany, U.K., France, Spain, Italy, and Rest of Europe. The Ewing sarcoma treatment market in Asia Pacific has been sub-segmented into China, Japan, India, Australia & New Zealand, and Rest of Asia Pacific.

The Latin America Ewing sarcoma treatment market has been sub-divided into Brazil, Mexico, and Rest of Latin America. The Ewing sarcoma treatment market in Middle East & Africa has been sub-segmented into GCC, South Africa, Israel, and Rest of Middle East & Africa. North America dominates the global Ewing sarcoma treatment market, followed by Europe. Key factors driving the market in these two regions are growing awareness about Ewing Sarcoma amongst adults and availability of sophisticated and technologically advanced treatment options in these regions. The rate of incidence of Ewing sarcoma is lower in Asia and Africa.

          Toxoid Vaccines Market to Witness Steady Expansion During 2017-2025      Cache   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/06/2018 -- When the immune system is attacked by bacteria-generated toxins, the patient may suffer from severe, harmful reactions. For example, tetanus is a serious bacterial infection that attacks the human nervous system and makes the muscles tightened. Other symptoms may include fever, sweating, and headache. In order to inactivate these toxins in the human and animal bodies, toxoid vaccines are used. A toxoid vaccine is basically made of formalin (solution of formaldehyde and sterilized water). It is adsorbed onto calcium and aluminum salts to improve the immune response.

Toxoid vaccines are safe to use and less vulnerable to changes in the atmosphere. Currently, toxoid vaccines are manufactured by culturing the highly toxigenic strain of Clostridium tetani. It is followed by ultrafiltration. Components of toxoid vaccines include antigens, stabilizers, adjuvants, antibiotics, and preservatives. Most toxoid vaccines are administered through the parenteral (intramuscular) route.

The global toxoid vaccines market is driven by several factors such as rising prevalence of tetanus and diphtheria (Bibersteinia trehalosi infection, Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis infection, enterotoxemia, pox, etc. in animals); increasing awareness about the severity of tetanus; high rate of diagnosis and treatment of tetanus and diphtheria and recommended number of doses of toxoid vaccines In the next few years, the toxoid vaccines market is likely to face challenges such as pain at the site of injection, side-effects, high prices of vaccines, weak supply chain network in developing countries, and stringent regulatory policies.

On the other hand, new treatment options, government initiatives to implement vaccination programs in developing countries, investments in the development of toxoid vaccines, and technological breakthroughs are anticipated to open new avenues for growth of the market in the near future.

Based on vaccine type, the global toxoid vaccines market has been categorized into tetanus vaccines, diphtheria vaccines, pertussis vaccines, and others (botulism). Currently, toxoid vaccines are used in humans as well as animals to counter the bacterial toxins. Hence, in terms of application, the global toxoid vaccines market can be segmented into human vaccines and veterinary vaccines. The veterinary vaccines segment has been sub-classified into companion animals and livestock animals. Based on end-user, the global toxoid vaccines market has been categorized into hospitals, independent clinics, households, and others (including government camps and health centers).

Request Report Brochure @ https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=B&rep_id=37661

Geographically, the global toxoid vaccines market has been classified into five regions such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the number of reported tetanus cases worldwide declined by more than 95% between 1974 and 2014 and the current incidence rate is around 0.1 per 1 million people per year.

The European Center for Disease Prevention & Control reported 117 cases of tetanus in human population in Europe in 2017, of which Italy accounted for 41% of cases. The average notification rate was 0.3 cases per 1 million human population in Europe in 2015. In the Asia Pacific region, neonatal and maternal tetanus is considered one of the major health concerns by health care practitioners. In the Asia Pacific region, the number of deaths have been going down since last five years.

According to a study published in the International Journal of Preventive Medicine in 2017, the number of neonatal tetanus cases declined significantly from 80,000 in 1980 to 500 in 2013. The same trend is also observed in China and countries in South Asia including Pakistan in 2016, owing to the rise in awareness about hygiene and increase in vaccinations. North America and Europe are estimated to hold a significant market share of the global toxoid vaccines market during the forecast period.

Request for TOC @ https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=T&rep_id=37661

Prominent players that have commercialized toxoid vaccines for human application are MassBiologics, Sanofi Pasteur, GlaxoSmithKliene Biologics, Grifols, Panacea Biotec, Halfkin Bio-Pharmaceuticals Corporation Ltd., Bengal Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals Ltd., Serum Institute of India, Bharat Pharmaceuticals, and Henry Schein Medical. On the other hand, Colorado Serum Company, Zoetis, and Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp have commercialized toxoid vaccines for veterinary application across the world.

          What would happen to German Bunds, denominated in Euros, if Italy refuses to walk the plank like Greece?      Cache   Translate Page      
Sir, I am not sure I follow Kate Allen’s discussion about the future of German Bunds. It is almost as she was discussing these as denominated in Deutsche Mark. The fact is these are in Euros, the same currency other weaker eurozone sovereign-debtors have their bonds denominated in. For instance, what would happen if Italy refuses to walk the plank like Greece? “German bond buyers bank on smooth withdrawal from QE”, November 6.

The European Union has clearly not dedicated itself wholeheartedly to solve the fundamental challenges posed by the adoption of the Euro by so many of its members, twenty years ago. For instance the European Commission has wasted its time on so many issues of minuscule importance that were really none of its business. As a result that Euro, which was created to unite Europe, might now disunite it. 

So what would happen if the Euro breaks in pieces? I have no idea but, in the case of Germany, if asked, I assume holders of German Bunds would probably accept to convert these into German Neo-DM Bunds. But of course that would also put an end to the eurozone “weaklings” subsidizing Germany’s competitiveness… like what if 1US$ = 0.75 Neo-DM? It would be a whole new ball game for everyone, Germany included!

Sir, as I recently wrote to you, for all those who want a peaceful European Union to thrive, which of course should include both Britain’s Brexiters and Remainers, the acts commemorating the end of WWI, provides an opportunity for important reflections.

In this respect the European Commission, the European Central Bank, the European Parliament, all of them, when imposing armistice conditions on capitulating eurozone sovereign debtors, should do well remembering the Versailles Treaty.

PS. Greece walked the plank

The Leaning Tower has made Pisa famous all over the world, and in addition to the tower, the city offers many other interesting things to see worth at least an day (click here for the latest cruise offers and discounts). And the best bit? We explored this gorgeous city by segway! This wouldn’t have been an excursion I would have usually chosen myself, but I am super happy we did it as it was so much fun! And bonus: I didn’t fall off either… It was a wonderful day as we explored the lesser known areas of the city, visited a few markets, took our Instagram shots in front of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Piazza dei Cavalieri and stopped for a bite to eat at a local Pizzeria restaurant.

          EUR / USD: Eurozone data indicates a likely slowdown in economic growth in the 4th quarter of this year.      Cache   Translate Page      

Data released in the first half of the day in the euro area, put pressure on the European currency, which did not allow traders to resume an upward trend in risky assets. The data indicates a high probability that the eurozone economy will again begin to show a slowdown in the 4th quarter of this year after the rise observed in the 2nd and 3rd quarters.

According to the report of the Federal Statistics Agency, orders in the manufacturing sector of Germany grew slightly in September of this year compared with August. The increase was due to higher domestic demand. However, a sharp decline was observed from countries outside the monetary union.

Basic data

According to the data, orders in the manufacturing sector as a whole rose by 0.3% after rising 2.5% in August. Economists had expected orders in September to fall by 0.6% altogether. As I noted above, domestic orders in September rose by 2.8%, while demand from non-eurozone countries dropped by 3.7% at once. Compared to the same period of 2017, orders decreased by 2.2%.

The data on activity in the Eurozone services sector also failed to support the euro. A sharp decline in Germany and Italy led to a fall in the overall index in the eurozone.

According to the report, the PMI Purchasing Managers Index for Germany in October of this year showed a slowdown in growth and amounted to 54.7 points against 55.9 points in September. Economists had forecast that PMI for Germany's service sector would be at 53.6 points.

In Italy, the activity in the services sector also fell sharply. According to Markit, the PMI Purchasing Managers Index fell below 50 points, indicating a decline in activity. The report indicates that in October it was 49.2 points against 53.3 points in September.

The activity in the Eurozone services sector in October turned out to be slightly higher than expected, but there is little to be happy about. According to IHS Markit, the PMI Purchasing Managers Index for the Eurozone services sector in October 2018 was 53.7 points against 54.7 points in September of this year. Growth in business activity at such a slow pace could lead to a possible slowdown in economic growth in the 4th quarter.

vYH3Ngp6Ivp_QnhZIvx1aX-0u4GI-xE5DObldFsJ

As for the technical picture of the EUR / USD currency pair, it remained almost unchanged. The breakthrough of the resistance level of 1.1420 will strengthen the presence of euro buyers, which will lead to the resumption of an uptrend with the updating of the resistance levels of 1.1450 and 1.1480. In the case of a decline below the support level of 1.1390, the pressure on the euro may increase significantly, which will lead to a larger downward trend with a return to the lows of last month in the area of 1.1300.

The Australian dollar ignored the decision of the Reserve Bank of Australia, which kept interest rates unchanged at 1.5%, where it has been located for more than two years.

u_EyXJLhnkIyael_ZX_EWzExvtcJSqFaz7ncdhVA

The RBA said that low interest rates still support the economy, and maintaining rates at the same level will correspond to stable GDP growth rates. Also, the current level of interest rates will allow over time to reach the target level of inflation.

The RBA believes that the prospects for the labor market remain positive, and they expect unemployment to decline to about 4.75% in 2020.

Economists of the bank revised their forecasts for GDP growth in 2018–2019 upwards to 3.5%.

          Medeni meseci (Honeymoons) - Goran Paskaljević      Cache   Translate Page      
due storie gemelle, due giovani coppie che dai Balcani vogliono farsi una nuova vita in Europa.
praticamente impossibile, non sono graditi, l'Europa non li vuole, e li prende anche per culo.
un film non perfetto ma necessario, mettersi nei panni dell'altro è il primo passo per capire qualcosa, qualsiasi cosa.
un film da non perdere, secondo me - Ismaele




Un racconto crudo e disilluso che si svolge a pochi passi da casa nostra ed i cui risvolti drammatici sono poco conosciuti in Italia. Siamo infatti poco abituati a metterci nei panni dell’immigrato e ad immaginare le minacce e le difficoltà in cui si imbatte una volta raggiunta la meta, sia questa la frontiera italiana o quella ungherese. Ad accogliere i protagonisti c’è la scortesia provinciale dei poliziotti di frontiera e la sopraffazione inflitta dagli stessi connazionali. Avere i documenti in regola di per sé non garantisce nulla, si evince che prima di essere persone si è immigrati. Pur forzando in maniera manichea la caratterizzazione dei personaggi, è evidente come la corsa verso una vita migliore si riveli essere solitaria e senza alleati.
Un film che sancisce la malvagità della divisione (dei popoli, delle famiglie) e l’utopia dell’unione, sia essa familiare o politica. Il destino riservato dal regista serbo nei confronti di coloro che cercano di cambiare il loro destino e di opporsi ad una realtà crudele asservita all’odio e al razzismo è tutt’altro che serena.
da qui

Ci sono film che forse non sono bellissimi, ma che hanno una loro utilità. Honeymoons è uno di questi, perché racconta due storie di migrazioni. Finora al cinema siamo stati abituati a vederle dall’interno, dal nostro punto di vista, mostrando chi arriva in Italia (Vesna va veloceQuando sei nato non puoi più nasconderti), ma mai dall’esterno, dal punto di vista di chi parte, e inizia a pensare il viaggio dal suo paese d’origine. Honeymoons ci mostra due coppie, una albanese e una serba, che vogliono venire in Italia e in Austria, passando per l’Ungheria.

Le due storie si sviluppano in maniera speculare, partendo da due matrimoni. Non quello dei quattro protagonisti, però: due sono già sposati, due intendono farlo presto. Nell’episodio in Serbia, la scena è quella che siamo abituati a vedere nei film di Kusturica. Il suo stile lha lasciato il segno: musica, alcol a fiumi e spari per aria. Anche se non c’è lo stesso movimento nello spazio e la grande maestria di Kusturica nel dirigere le scene di massa.

Se si supera lo stile un po’ sciatto del film (è girato in digitale e le immagini hanno colori piuttosto sbiaditi sui toni del marrone), Honeymoons è un film che qualche insegnamento può darlo. Sarebbe utile per tutti vedere le scene dei migranti nei loro paesi d’origine, i sogni e le speranze che associano al loro viaggio. E quello che succede alla frontiera. I quattro protagonisti sono belli, giovani, innamorati, fiduciosi. A nessuno verrebbe in mente di infliggere loro le pene a cui sono costretti varcando la frontiera. L’Italia e l’Europa che si aspettano non è quella che troveranno. E stiamo attenti: l’immagine dell’Italia che cominciano ad avere all’estero è tutt’altro che quella di un “bel paese”.
da qui

La storia si svolge contemporanea in Albania e in Serbia dove seguiamo le vicende di due giovani coppie che decidono di abbandonare le loro reciproche abitazioni per cercare di avere una vita migliore nell'Europa Occidentale. Quando la coppia albanese, dopo una serie di contrattempi, raggiunge un porto dell'Italia del sud hanno inizio i problemi. Lo stesso accadrà, anche se con modalità diverse, alla coppia serba al momento dell'ingresso in Europa attraverso l'Ungheria. In Kosovo sono stati uccisi due soldati italiani e chiunque provenga dall'area è considerato un sospetto anche se con i documenti in regola.
Goran Paskaljevic non ha mai abbandonato un modo di fare cinema che, sin dagli esordi, ha trattato le tematiche sociali della sua terra di origine (la Serbia) filtrandole sempre attraverso una profonda pietas. Paskaljevic non è mai stato tenero con i suoi conterranei (basti ricordare La polveriera) ma anche nel momento della polemica più forte non ha mai dimenticato di guardare alle origini del disagio e della sofferenza della comunità e dei singoli.
È quanto fa con la descrizione delle vite di due giovani coppie che non riescono a trovare in patria le condizioni per poter pensare a un futuro. Le tensioni familiari e le pressioni dall'esterno diventano insostenibili. Come risolvere se non cercando una speranza nell'Europa dei popoli e delle nazioni? Non sono i poveri boat people che cercano di attraccare sulle coste della Sicilia. Hanno dei visti regolari, hanno un progetto (uno di loro è un musicista che si reca a un'audizione che potrebbe aprirgli le porte al mondo dei concerti). 
Ma il pregiudizio è un muro molto più alto e solido di quello caduto a Berlino. Paskaljevic riesce a di-mostrarlo senza fare retorica, con la forza di un umanesimo che unisce al pessimismo della ragione la speranza di una volontà che, proprio perché non accetta lo status quo, si fa cinema.

A double header with similar themes, Honeymoons exposes the depth of dysfunction between traditional Balkan society and post Soviet global greed. In both, young love has no currency compared to dirty currency and freedom is a dream rather than a promise.
There are two weddings, one in Albania and the other in Serbia. Both are ostentatious affairs, given by men who have become rich on the back of the new order. It is not they, nor their arrogant acolytes, who matter so much as their underappreciated cousins and brothers, who remain true to their beliefs and, as a result, poor.

Rok and Vevo are Albanian peasants, living in a village that has no telephone. Three years ago their eldest son Ilir attempted to escape to Italy in a rubber boat, but was never heard of again. His fiancée Majilinda stays with them, as is the custom, but cannot entertain thoughts of another romance until Ilir’s fate has been confirmed. Nik, the younger son, loves her and plans to take her to Italy to start a new life. The family travel to Tirana by bus for the wedding of Rok’s brother’s daughter, where they are treated by the rowdier guests as a reminder of rural poverty’s deep rooted backwardness, while Nik uses family contacts to advance his plans for Majilinda.
In the second story, Marko is a budding cellist, living in Belgrade with Vera, to whom he is secretly married. He has been invited to an audition with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, but first they must go to her cousin’s wedding, where he meets her family, especially her father who remains embittered by his brother’s capitulation to the corrupt world of national politics. Again there is evidence of cultural snobbery against those who do not flaunt wealth as the 21st century beacon of Western-style success.
In the end, this is a film, not so much about the destruction of values in a materialistic world, but the meaning of freedom for the powerless. When the young couples reach Italian shores, they find themselves at the mercy of circumstance and border guards. Nothing, even that which appears greener on the other side, is what it seems. Disappointment may be the pale shadow of fulfilment when love fails, through no fault of its own, to conquer all.

…it’s the cinematic equivalent of a Theodore Dreiser novel, a social-justice story with its heart planted firmly in the right place but its author’s heavy hand too much in evidence. The interactions too often feel contrived, the dialogue is clumsily expository, and the camera keeps pushing into people’s faces to focus on welling tears or thousand-yard stares of despair.
The honeymoons of the ironic title are those of two young couples, one from a small town in Albania and the other from Belgrade. In typically literal-minded fashion, the screenplay underscores the similarities between these young innocents from warring cultures by sending each to a lavish family wedding before they try to escape to Western Europe. By the time they head out, you understand why they need to leave a place where murderous enmities divide people even within families, corruption runs rampant (even a bus driver expects a bribe), and nothing quite works the way it’s supposed to. So we root for these four underdeveloped but clearly sensitive and sympathetic young people—mournful Maylinda, gallant young Nick, musician Marko, and bravely smiling Vera—to get to a better place, even as we know that vicious thugs, cruel cops, opportunistic fellow refugees, and deterministic filmmakers will get between them and their freedom…

BRISBANE, Australia (AP) — No matter what Lamar Patterson does for the Brisbane Bullets on the basketball court, he can expect to be dogged by questions about Kobe. The ex-Atlanta Hawks player flew into Brisbane with his French bulldog placed inside his hand luggage and ran afoul of Australia's quarantine laws. The Bullets recruit was briefly detained after landing in Brisbane on Thursday with his dog, Kobe. The 27-year-old Patterson, who has played seasons in Turkey, Italy and China, cleared customs at the airport. But Kobe was kept in quarantine and was sent home Friday, Australia's agriculture department said.

The problem of misidentification between edible and poisonous wild plants: Reports from the Mediterranean area.

Food Chem Toxicol. 2018 Sep;119:112-121

Authors: Cornara L, Smeriglio A, Frigerio J, Labra M, Di Gristina E, Denaro M, Mora E, Trombetta D

Abstract
Today, in many European countries, people are looking for wild edible plants to experience new tastes and flavors, by following the new trend of being green and environmentally friendly. Young borage and spinach leaves can be easily confused by inexpert pickers with those of other plants, including poisonous ones, such as Mandragora autumnalis Bertol. (mandrake) or Digitalis purpurea L. (foxglove), common in southern and northern Italy respectively. In the last twenty years, several cases of intoxication by accidental ingestion of mandrake and foxglove have been reported. The purpose of this work was to perform a pharmacognostic characterization of young leaves from borage, mandrake, foxglove and spinach, by micro-morphological, molecular and phytochemical techniques. The results showed that each of the three techniques investigated could be sufficient alone to provide useful information for the identification of poisonous species helping the medical staff to manage quickly the poisoned patients. However, the multi-disciplinary approach proposed could be very useful to asses the presence of poisonous plants in complex matrices, to build a database containing morphological, molecular and phytochemical data for the identification of poisonous species or in forensic toxicology, given their increasingly frequent use due to their low cost and relatively common availability.

          Toronto is getting a Newfoundland themed store      Cache   Translate Page      

Where you want bibimbap, borsch or bannock with bison, there's no shortage of authentic regional cuisine in multicultural Toronto.

Few neighbourhoods exemplify this fact better than Parkdale, where side-by-side, lined up along Queen Street West, you'll find spots specializing in food from Tibet, Japan, Poland, Mexico, India, Nepal, Greece, The Phillipines, Italy, France, French Polynesia, North Africa and now, Newfoundland.

Craig Pike, the East Coast actor-turned-entrepreneur behind Craig's Cookies, is expanding his footprint in Toronto with the creation of another business in Parkdale.

"We busted a hole in the wall to extend our kitchen in the back, and out front is a Newfoundland store!" he said of his new venture by email.

Located directly beside Craig's Cookies at 1537 Queen, the shop is called "NEWFOUNDLAND" — and it's exactly what it sounds like: a place to buy goods imported from Newfoundland and Labrador.

Think caramel logs, naval salt beef, 'Jam Jam' cookies and lots of the spice savoury.

Pike isn't the first person to have this idea in Ontario (apparently, there's some demand here for pickled pork scrunchions and pineapple crush) but his new store will be a unique addition to Toronto's food scene.

An opening date has yet to be announced, but things are coming along fast based on the store's Instagram profile — and customers are rabid for a taste of the Rock.

"Gonna have to learn how to make jiggs dinner for my roommates now!" commented one person on a picture of beef in a tub. "Pot liquor for DAYS b'y," wrote someone else.

I don't know what most of the comments mean, but there are tons of them — which usually means the shop will be poppin'.

Jaxx, I relate to this a lot and I feel the exact same way. It is so scary to leave where you are comfortable and start going out to explore new things. I like being in the bubble because I feel safe and have less fear. I told myself as well that I would do my best to go out of the bubble and try to do new things and speak to more people in Italian. I agree that even in small spurts of uncomfortable interaction I start to slowly leave the bubble step by step. Slowly I am experiencing more of Italy just in those small interactions.

          Celebrities who love to travel      Cache   Translate Page      

Celebrities are just like us and love to travel! Of course, they can afford to do it in more style and extravagance. These stars have the travel bug. Bill Murray The legendary Bill Murray tries to fit in as much travel as he can while he works. He loves to take a solo and discover new places. Bill Murray took 4 years break from the acting and moved to Paris and then to Prague. George Clooney George Clooney lives la dolce vita in Italy and is a regular on Lake Como, where he has a huge estate. Parts of his blockbuster movie Ocean’s Twelve were filmed at his villa in Laglio. He also returned to get married to Amal Alamuddin in Venice in 2014 and the newlyweds spent time traveling through the Italian countryside via a Vespa moped and Fiat 500. Bear Grylls It’s one thing to have the travel bug, yet Bear goes further and chows down on it. The British explorer is well known for his basic instincts. He’s tanked fecal fluid from elephant dung, eaten deer droppings and utilized the body of a sheep as a resting bag. He doesn’t do this since he’s down and out; this is his bread and butter, not that you’ll ever observe him eating anything as ordinary as that. His most loved goals incorporate Mount Everest, Greenland’s tremendous field of wild and the impressively less-hostile Panama City. Angelina Jolie This prolific traveler has traveler will also continue to have some awesome journeys in her work as Goodwill Ambassador for the UN. So far she’s visited Sierra Leone, Cambodia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Pakistan. Chris Hemsworth Chris Hemsworth was certainly not content with being the king of Asgard, quite evident from his around the world trips and those make-you-jealous travel photos. Chris Hemsworth is a serious surfer who travels around the world looking for his next great set. Chris’ Instagram account is laced with surfing photography and videos, and after checking out a few of them, it’s easy to see that he has some serious skills.

Such a great honor and so well deserved. Larry and Gloria, you must both be so proud.

I have a personal investment in this because it was my grandfather, Samuel DeMeo, Sr., who planted those pictured trees along Longshore Drive. He was an immigrant from Avellino Italy in the early 1900s and planted those trees when Longshore was still a private estate.
          Art meets Fashion at Grove Gallery and Interiors      Cache   Translate Page      
Fashion inspired
by art
Grove Gallery and Interiors is presenting “An Inspired Collaboration,” showcasing canvases by artist Brittenand art to wear by Mi Jong Lee on Friday, November 9, from 5:30-8:30 pm. The event is open to the public 

Britten’s works on display were inspired by Mi Jong Lee’s vibrant and ethereal designs from her 2019 Spring collection.

The 2019 Spring Collection boasts clean lines and silhouettes reminiscent of a multi-layered,
well curated art collection. For Mi Jong Lee the inspiration for this Art-To-Wear show was influenced by renowned American artist Georgia O’ Keeffe. Mi Jong Lee’s credentials include Cornell University, and The New School’s Parsons School of Design, and after a successful retail career that spans 30 years, she founded her fashion house in 2014. 

The brand is designed and manufactured in the Garment District in New York City. The collection is available at Ms. Lee’s Madison Avenue flagship store as well as online
at Moda Operandi and in over fifteen designer Specialty stores across The United States and Canada.

Britten is currently based in Colorado where her creativity mirrors a landscape of emotion inspired by Colorado’s open space. She studied art in the historically rich city of
Florence, Italy where she developed a wide range of artistic abilities as a graphic, portrait, and mural artist.

She found her true expression in the contemporary art world and has developed a unique layering technique incorporating gold, silver and copper leaf, which gives her paintings a luminous quality that ranges from a peaceful feeling to a vibrant zing and everything in between. 

Lasso the Moon will cater the event which is sponsored by Foley and Lardner LLP.

Intimate showings and fashion fittings will be available at Grove Gallery & Interiors by appointment only on Saturday, November 10, from 10 am-1 pm. Call 305-445-7401 or email Rachel Simon at rachel@grovegalleryinteriors.com to reserve your appointment.

Britten’ exhibit will be on view until the end of November.

The gallery’s 15,000 sq.ft. showroom is located at 2884 Bird Avenue.

Song Do, the new designed city of the future is having teething problems. How long will it last as the sea level rises and reclaims the marshland the city took over? But it also has a very dark side. <i>LOOKING wistfully around at the surroundings, a strange mix of marshland and random high-rise buildings, Shim Jong-rae shakes his head, echoing the sentiment of many residents: “It’s a ghost town.” For more than a decade, urban planners have been studying the construction of Songdo, South Korea, the world’s first Smart City. Built within 25 miles of Seoul, it was to be the antithesis of the suffocating, overpopulated capital. A new way of thinking for more than 300,000 residents, spread out over 600 hectares of reclaimed land from the Yellow Sea. The brainchild of developers and the government, the vision was to construct a car-free world, with 40 per cent green space and dozens of kilometres of cycling routes. <i></i> https://www.scmp.com/week-asia/business/article/2137838/south-koreas-smart-city-songdo-not-quite-smart-enough But even worse, Songdo represents ecohabitat destruction. </i><i> Reclamation of internationally important tidal-flats at Song Do, as elsewhere, however, has already resulted in substantial declines in some species of waterbird at the local, national and even population level. Some of the species in decline are globally-threatened. These declines will continue further with further reclamation Simply, a genuine eco-city would not be built on tidal-flats. A genuine eco-city would cherish remaining tidal-flats, and aim to restore and enhance intertidal wetland – and not permit or promote its destruction. Unlike the ROK and China, most nations already gave up large-scale tidal-flat reclamation several decades ago. Now, the United States of America, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany and Italy among a host of other nations, are instead actively investing in restoring coastal wetlands and tidal-flats. Restoration, while expensive and less efficient than conservation of natural intertidal wetland, still helps these nations to move closer to meeting their formal obligations to the conservation conventions, and to help conserve migratory bird and fish species that depend on tidal-flats. It also allows them (and future generations of their citizens), to reap the multiple environmental, social and economic benefits of conservation through restoring ecosystem health and services. Is this really the most economical, efficient and environmentally-sound use of land that until a few years ago was some of the most naturally productive and wildlife-rich wetland in the world?<i></i> http://www.birdskorea.org/Habitats/Wetlands/Songdo/BK-HA-Songdo-Is-Song-Do-an-Example-of-Sustainable-Development.shtml Anyone see a triple whammy here?</i>

          Anthropology from Portugal, on Portugal and beyond Portugal: racialized relations and representations, Nov 13      Cache   Translate Page      
Paula Mota Santos will speak about "Slavery as dark heritage in Post-colonial Portugal". The Lagos, Southern Portugal slavery exhibition is only the second European-located museum space dedicated to the transatlantic slave trade, and one institutionally linked to UNESCO’s Slave Route program. I will carry out an analysis of the images, texts and forms of display of the Lagos exhibition will be presented and cross-referenced to the way slavery is displayed in the NMAAHC in Washington DC. The recently approved project of a slavery memorial in Lisbon as well as the fate of the remains of 15th century slaves found in Lagos will also be discussed.

Paula Mota Santos (UCL, UK 2004) is an anthropologist who focus her research interests in the relation between social identity and space. She as published on heritage, tourism, migration and urban horticultural communities. She has an interest in visual representation and has published on film, photography and on theme parks whose theme is the nation.

Cristiana Bastos will speak about "Portuguese in the cane: the racialization of labor in Hawaiian plantations". Based on her current project “The Colour of Labour”, she will discuss the relationship between the roles in the production system and the production of racialized social categories. She will refer to Hawaiian plantations labor and analyse the category “Portuguese.”

Cristiana Bastos (CUNY 1996) is an anthropologist with cross disciplinary incursions into history, history of science, public health and the intersections of migration and colonialism. She is currently leading the multi-track project The Colour of Labour – the racialized lives of migrants, funded by the European Research Council, with empirical research in plantation and plantation-like societies. She is based at the Institute of Social Sciences, University of Lisbon, where she heads the Research Group Identities, Cultures, Vulnerabilities and participated in a variety of programs and projects in Portugal, Brazil, USA, UK, India, Mozambique, Germany, Spain and Italy.

          How to Make Money Stopping Illegal Alien Caravans      Cache   Translate Page      

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

There are over 12,000 American military personnel stationed in Italy. It’s a larger active-duty military presence than Afghanistan. We maintain seven bases in Italy at a cost of billions of dollars.

But as President Trump dispatched a mere 5,000 troops, the first wave of a reported 15,000, to secure the border against the migrant caravan invasion, the media threw a tantrum over the cost.

The Washington Post warned darkly that the deployment could cost as much as... $200 million. That would be more impressive if our annual defense budget weren’t hovering around $600 billion.

And those are only the parts that we know about.

To put that into perspective, President Trump has proposed that we spend 0.03% of our military budget on the core mission of the military, protecting our own borders from an invasion. It’s as if he had suggested that we spend at least 0.03% of NASA’s budget on space exploration, instead of global warming and Muslim self-esteem, or 0.03% of the Department of Education’s budget on education instead of on closely monitoring the sexual habits and Halloween costumes of college students.

Deploying soldiers abroad is far more expensive than deploying them at home. And it’s a lot cheaper to stop drug dealers, gang members and terrorists at the border than it is inside the country.

What does $200 million buy us when it comes to national defense?

$200 million is being spent on special glasses and goggles for pilots to protect their eyes from laser devices fired into cockpits. We spend around $260 million on military bands. The military ad budget is in the high hundreds of millions of dollars.

We’re spending $200 million on military aid to Ukraine. If we can spend that much money to help the Ukrainians keep the Russians away, perhaps we can spend some that money to keep gang members and drug dealers out of our own backyard. The Russians are a menace, but they won’t be chopping up our children with machetes tomorrow. The MS-13 thugs riding along in that caravan just might.

If the media really has a problem with that, let its talking heads pretend that the caravan is Russian.

Every dollar we spend on border security is a fortune we don’t have to spend on police officers, surveillance cameras, insurance, ER visits, prisons, funerals and the larger sense of insecurity.

Let’s put that $200 million into its proper perspective.

An audit this year found that the Defense Logistics Agency couldn't account for $800 million in construction projects.

The money that President Trump may end up spending to protect our border from an invasion could fit four times over into a government accounting error.

None of this is to suggest that the work the military does at home and abroad isn’t vitally important. We should be protecting our pilots; military bands serve a vital purpose and so does our presence in Italy.

But if we don’t have a country, then it doesn’t matter how good our military bands are.

If there’s no United States of America, then why bother having seven bases in Italy? Why does the political establishment expect taxpayers to spend a fortune on geopolitics, but not on the home-front?

The purpose of the United States military is not to protect Italy, it’s to protect America. We built bases and stationed forces across Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and South America for our own needs.

If we can’t use our own soldiers to protect our own country, what is the whole thing for?

While the media is notoriously parsimonious with the military budget, Obama’s presidential center will cost taxpayers $199 million. Throw in another million and that’s the cost of keeping more gang members from reaching Chicago and boosting the summer weekend death toll from 39 to 43.

Will the youth of Chicago benefit more from another museum no one visits (the Windy City already has more museums that no one visits than any other city in the country) or staying alive not to visit them?

Obama’s Africa trip costs were estimated in the neighborhood of $100 million. His corrupt Solyndra deal cost taxpayers over $500 million. His illegal cash shipments to Iranian terrorists alone could have paid for the latest border deployment eight times over. The media would rather we send billions to the Islamic terrorists murdering American soldiers than spend a fraction of that to send soldiers to the border.

But forgot how much money we’re spending to stop the illegal caravan invasion. Let’s look at how much we’re saving.

A new Center for Immigration Studies report estimates that we're spending $4 billion a year on illegal alien births alone.

FAIR estimated that taxpayers are spending $134 billion a year on illegal aliens. That’s around $8,000 per illegal alien. The annual cost of the 7,000, mostly male, migrants would be $56 million in one year.

If the military deployment stops the caravan, then it will have paid for itself in 4 years. If we fail to stop the migrant caravan, we will lose more than double that $200 million by 2026.

And that 7,000 is just a drop in the bucket. There are 12,000 migrants in Mexico. And more are coming every day. If we can deter these invaders, we will have sent a message that will save lives and billions.

Detaining an illegal migrant invader costs between $100 to $200 a day. This is expensive, but far less than the cost of a single murder, drunk driving accident or assorted forms of illegal migrant crime.

If the illegal migrant invaders make it into this country, detaining them will cost us $700,000 a day. In a month, the average length of time an illegal alien is detained, that will balloon to $21 million.

In under a year, the cost would surpass that $200 million that the media is bellyaching about.

Of course they won’t be held that long.

Budget and capacity strains would force their release. That’s already happened again and again.

It’s how a key World Trade Center bomber ended up on the streets. It’s how countless MS-13 gang members and other criminals have flooded our cities.

That original World Trade Center bombing back in 1993 may have cost as much as $1.1 billion. (Not accounting for inflation.) If you think immigration enforcement is expensive, just wait until a skyscraper gets bombed.

Between 2011 and 2018, a quarter of a million aliens were booked into Texas jails. Think about the cost of every single one of those inmates. The cost of the 1,351 murders, 7,156 sexual assaults and 815 kidnappings they committed in just one state. Then think about the human cost of all those horrors.

We spend hundreds of billions of dollars protecting the rest of the world. The least we can do is spend $200 million, as a down payment on an $18 billion wall, to protect ourselves, our families and our future.

If the media thinks the cost of deploying the military to the border is expensive, imagine the cost of deploying it in our cities.

Many of the countries that the migrants are arriving from use the military for domestic law enforcement. They are forced to do it because their brand of organized crime is so lethal that they have no other choice. Now those same gangs and crime families are flooding across our border.

If Texas and California go the way of Mexico, Honduras and El Salvador, we will have no other choice.

Opponents of border security have put their partisan political interests ahead of America’s national security, its stability and its survival. Americans are being murdered every day by the gang members they have allowed into this country in order to expand their districts and build up their political power.

Is $200 billion too much?

Chicago’s police budget is approaching $1.5 billion. So is the police budget in Los Angeles. New York passed $5 billion a while back.

That $200 million border deployment? It wouldn’t buy you the cost of a month of policing in New York.

If you think immigration enforcement is expensive, try not enforcing it. Chicago, Los Angeles and New York have.


          Мимо      Cache   Translate Page      

«Мимо» не в смысле «мимо цели», а мэр итальянского города Риаче по имени Доменико Лукано. Вот он на фото на фоне команданте Че показывает собственную городскую валюту (российским конспирологам должно понравиться)

Domenico Lucano a.k.a. Mimmo

Если вы пока что еще ничего про него не слышали, рассказываю.

Риаче - это мелкий провинциальный городок в Итальянской провинции Калабрия (условный «носок сапога» на карте Италии, то есть самая южная часть страны рядом с Сицилией). Люди, хоть немного знакомые с итальянской географией, хорошо понимают, что это означает: юг Италии вообще намного более беден, чем промышленно развитый Север, а Калабрия выделяется как отсталый и депрессивный регион даже на фоне прочих южных провинций. С учётом сказанного, неудивительно, что это ещё и бастион итальянской мафии.

В общем, место, прямо скажем, не самое привлекательное для жизни.

Нынешний мэр этого города, 60-летний Доменико Лукано, известный как «Мимо» (Mimmo), родился в городе Мелито-ди-Порто-Сальво (самая южная точка той же провинции Калабрия, в сотне километров к югу от Риаче), в детстве переехал с родителями в Риаче и долгие годы работал там школьным учителем, пока не оказалось, что учить ему некого: город практически обезлюдел и состоял по большей части из давно заброшенных жителями полу-разрушенных домов.

Между тем, в 1998 году к побережью неподалеку от города случайно прибило шлюпку с курдскими беженцами. Их встретил Лукано, который сразу же и предложил им оставаться жить здесь, благо есть где. Курды внимательно посмотрели на Лукано, на заброшенный город-призрак, сказали «нет, спасибо» и поплыли дальше.

Но Доменико уже понял, что ему следует делать.

В 2004 он избрался мэром (история умалчивает, была ли на выборах острая конкурентная борьба), и начал активно реализовывать программу по расселению в городе беженцев. Он селил их в заброшенные и разрушенные дома, бесплатно, с условием, что жители будут их понемногу восстанавливать и заниматься разного рода мелким кустарным производством каких-то безделушек на продажу.

И — город начал возрождаться.

Открылись магазины и кафе. Появились рабочие места. В город начали возвращаться уехавшие было жители. Вновь заработала городская школа.

А потом в Италии на выборах пришла к власти коалиция, состоящая из ультра-правой Movimento 5 Stelle (M5S, «Движение пяти звёзд»), сепаратистской Lega Nord («Северная Лига»), и ряда более мелких партий. Хотя пост премьер-министра получил сравнительно умеренный профессор права Джузеппе Конте, основатель и идеолог «Северной Лиги» Маттео Салвини, которого часто сравнивают с Трампом, стал заместителем Премьер-министра и влиятельным министром внутренних дел.

В начале октября финансовая полиция Италии предъявила Мимо ряд обвинений, в частности, речь шла о финансовых нарушениях — эти обвинения вскоре оказались совершенно несостоятельными — но так же и в «организации фиктивных браков с целью получения беженцами вида на жительство в Италии». Доказательством последнего служит записанный полицией телефонный разговор, в котором мэр говорит кому-то из беженцев, которому несколько раз отказали в получении убежища, что-то вроде «твой единственный шанс — брак с итальянцем, я могу помочь с этим»; при этом, как мэр, он, естественно, имеет полномочия на оформление браков у себя в городе, так что толковать последнюю фразу можно как минимум по-разному.

Так или иначе, он был посажен под домашний арест, а две недели спустя суд запретил ему появляться в городе, мэром которого он по-прежнему является (пояснений к этому несколько странному решению суда я не нашёл).

Вот такая по-своему замечательная история (еще, будем надеяться, не законченная) человека, который решил, что с беженцами надо не бороться, а сотрудничать.

          Ethiopia: UNHCR Ethiopia: Durable Solutions Factsheet (September 2018)      Cache   Translate Page      
Source: UN High Commissioner for Refugees
Country: Canada, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Italy, Kenya, New Zealand, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Sweden, United States of America

  • Ethiopia hosts 905,831 refugees and asylum seekers within its borders, including the 36,185 who arrived since the start of 2018.

  • The Government of Ethiopia has committed to address the concerns of refugees, including a pledge to grant local integration to those who have lived in the country for 20 years and above.

  • Resettlement remains the chief durable solution for refugees in Ethiopia, but limited quotas mean that only 3,240 refugees will be referred to resettlement countries in 2018.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • UNHCR supports the Government of Ethiopia in discharging its international obligations, fulfilling the organization’s core objectives to provide refugees and other persons of concern with international protection, and to seek durable solutions for them. The three traditional durable solutions are complementary and are pursued together:

    • Voluntary repatriation, in which refugees return in safety and with dignity to their countries of origin and re-avail themselves of national protection;
    • Resettlement, in which refugees are selected and transferred from the country of refuge to a third state which has agreed to admit them as refugees with permanent residence status; and
    • Local integration, in which refugees legally, economically and socially integrate in the host country, availing themselves of the national protection of the host government.
  • UNHCR and partners support livelihoods programmes for refugees in order to reduce vulnerability and dependency on humanitarian assistance. Refugees who actively support themselves are better equipped to take on the challenges of any of the durable solutions. UNHCR recognizes the stress that the presence of refugees can place on already-impoverished host communities and works closely with development actors and regional governments to mitigate the impact. UNHCR advocates for complementarity of services for refugees and host communities, and seeks to ensure that refugees are included in their intervention and development plans, thereby promoting peaceful co-existence.

  • UNHCR Ethiopia is committed to assisting refugees in accessing complementary legal pathways including family reunification and other humanitarian migration programmes, such as private sponsorship, study and employment possibilities. UNHCR Ethiopia continues to issue refugees with proof of registration documents and provides advice on how to process family reunification cases. Specifically, UNHCR directly assists unregistered refugee children in accessing the services and documentation necessary to reunite with their family members abroad. UNHCR Ethiopia is also involved in the issuance of Convention Travel Documents (CTDs), which permits refugees to undertake international travel for employment, education and to seek medical treatment unavailable in Ethiopia.

  • The innovative Italian Humanitarian Corridor program was officially launched in 2017 and aims to relocate 500 refugees to Italy. UNHCR has undertaken this project with two faith-based organizations, Caritas Italiana and Sant’Egidio Community, through which refugees with family links in Italy as well as those with protection and medical vulnerabilities are able to find a durable solution. To date, 327 refugees have departed for new lives in Italy.

They understand funk, and they know exactly how to use it as the basis of great electronic songs. Carlo Troja aka Don Carlos hails from Varese, in the North of Italy. He debuted as a producer towards the end of the 80's with the single Alone on Calypso Records Irma, which became one of the cult tracks of the international Deep House scene.

The European Commission decided to ask Italy to change its 2019 budget plan and to submit the new version by November 13.

The European Commission will announce on November 21, an opinion on all of the euro zone's draft budgets. If there is no change in the budget plan, Brussels could eventually open an excessive deficit procedure (EDP) — a legal step that aims to help countries respecting European fiscal rules and putting their finances back on track.

          Dairy prices slip -2%; markets sanguine on US elections; Canada building permits edge up; China facing growing economic challenges; RBA optimistic; UST 10yr at 3.21%; oil and gold lower; NZ$1 = 66.7 USc; TWI-5 = 71      Cache   Translate Page      

Here's our summary of key events overnight that affect New Zealand, with news China is at a bit of a crossroads economically.

But first today, the overnight dairy auction is piling on some pressure on the industry. It came in with a -2% overall result, but in New Zealand dollars overall prices were down -3.2%. That means overall prices are now -12.5% lower in US dollars than this time last year and down -9.5% in New Zealand dollars. The key WMP price is down almost -3% today and this is important because more than half the product being auctioned is WMP. WMP prices in New Zealand dollars sank below $4,000/tonne for the first time in 2018 and only the second time since October 2016. The quantity sold of 42,412 tonnes was the highest since August 2015. But don't forget that auction sales only account for about 30% of Fonterra's sales volume. And other dairy companies offer product in these auctions. Today's auction result won't be helping farmgate milk prices.

In the US they are voting in mid-term elections. Results won't become clear until much later today. The S&P500 however is up +0.6% and the UST 10yr yield is up. Investors don't seem nervous about how it will turn out.

In Canada building permits edged higher in September reversing a downward track the month earlier, and came in above analysts expectations. Non-residential gains were stronger, but residential permits rose more than expected as well. Despite this, September 2018 levels are still -0.5% lower than September 2017.

In China, and it a bit of a backtrack from yesterday, a senior official has said that they will talk to the Americans about trade and respond to American criticisms.

And closer to home, their central bank has said it is worried about the sharp spike in short term consumer loans. They grew by +20% in 2017 and authorities worry about the stress this is imposing on people buying things with money they don't have.

Further, the head of an influential state-backed think tank has forecast that China’s economic expansion may be entering a long-term “downward spiral” as all three engines of growth - investment, exports and consumption - slow down. And international investors are growing tired of empty Chinese 'reform' declarations.

Growth strengthened in the world's services sector in October in a giant survey released overnight. In fact, it was revealed that activity is rising at a faster rate, new business growth is stable, and input prices are rising faster. This October result was the first improvement in four months. Now Italy is the only country contracting.

Yesterday, the RBA left its official rates unchanged yet again but its outlook was decidedly upbeat. It forecasts faster economic growth for Australia and that by 2020 their unemployment rate will fall to its lowest level since the GFC. The RBNZ will give it's assessment on Thursday and if it is also as upbeat, the chances that the next rate change here will be a rise will go up.

The UST 10yr yield is up +1 bps at 3.21%. Their 2-10 curve is at +29 bps. The Aussie Govt 10yr is at 2.73% (unchanged), the China Govt 10yr is at 3.54% and down -2 bps, while the NZ Govt 10 yr is at 2.67% and unchanged today.

Gold is down another -US$3 overnight to US$1,226/oz.

US oil prices are sharply lower today to just over US$61.70/bbl, a fall of about -US$1.50/bbl. The Brent benchmark is now over US$71.70/bbl also sinking.

The Kiwi dollar is starting today a little firmer at 66.7 USc. On the cross rates we are unchanged at 92.4 AUc, and the same at 58.4 euro cents. That leaves the TWI-5 at 71 and near its three month high.

Bitcoin is now at US$6,442 which is virtually unchanged from this time yesterday. This rate is charted in the exchange rate set below.

          The potential future of Donald Trump's presidency could be decided this week; NZD held its ground late Friday reaching a high of 0.6685 against the USD after Non Farm Payroll numbers printed; NZDAUD pair continues to be range bound      Cache   Translate Page      

By Neven Fisher*:

Melbourne Cup runs today at 5.05pm NZT.
The potential future of Donald Trump's presidency could be decided this week with US Midterm elections taking place. The Democrats need only 23 further seats to make a total of 218 to take control of the House, polling starts Wednesday NZ time. The world's economies have enjoyed a buoyant year with the international Monetary Fund in April saying the planet was enjoying the most united upswing since 2010. The mood however has changed in October when they cut its global outlook saying global growth has plateaued. The change is being led by China with the weakest current stretch of performance since 2009 is expected to get worse unless a favorable deal can be negotiated in the trade war with the US. The Eurozone is also losing pace expanding in the third quarter less than the previous quarter as Germany and Italy staled. The big question now is if recent US growth can continue providing good results on the back of protectionism and higher interest rates heading into 2019 and provide a counterweight for the rest of the world.  Reports have indicated that a potential trade deal could be close between China and the US. Trump's lead adviser Kudlow has played this down when he said "no massive movement to deal with China" and "we're not on the cusp of a deal". Chinese manufacturers who have the misfortune of being on the list of affected companies who will have tariffs raised from 10% to 25% on a 1 January 2019 are flat out producing products for export into the US markets to make shipping deadlines before the due date. US Non-Farm Payroll employment increased by a healthy 250,000 jobs Friday for the month of October well up on the forecasted 190,000. Wage growth has risen by 3.1% year on year, this is the fastest increase since 2009. The greenback rallied along with the US 10 year treasury bond jumping 8 points to 3.21%. US equity markets turned negative - the Nasdaq falling 1.20%. Three central banks will release cash rate announcements this week starting with the RBA Tuesday with no change from the 1.5% expected. RBNZ Thursday with no change from 1.75% expected and Federal Reserve also who will keep their benchmark rate at 2.25%

Major Announcements last week:

  • ANZ NZ Business Confidence prints down
  • Bank of Japan leave rates at -0.10%
  • Canadian monthly GDP releaes at 0.1% from 0.0% expected
  • Australian Trade Balance prints at a whopping 3.02B compared to 1.71B markets expected
  • Bank of England cash rate remains unchanged at 0.75% in a 0-9 vote
  • Aussie Retail Sales publishes at 0.2% down on the 0.3% expected
  • US Non-Farm Payroll prints higher at 250,000 new jobs compared to 194,000
  • US Manufacturing prints higher at 60.3 over 59.3 predicted

NZD/USD

The New Zealand Dollar (NZD) held its ground late Friday reaching a high of 0.6685 against the US Dollar (USD) after Non Farm Payroll numbers printed. The US Labour dept showed employment increased by a massive 250,000 jobs in October well in front of the 194,000 expected. Chinese data Monday helped the kiwi push higher back through 0.6660 but any upside from here looks to be capped below 0.6700. Tomorrow’s employment figures could pressure the kiwi if we fail to see a drop in the unemployment rate of 4.5%. Thursday’s RBNZ cash rate and monetary statement shouldn’t offer up any surprises with markets keen to see the overall tone of future policy.

NZD/AUD (AUD/NZD)

The New Zealand Dollar, Australian Dollar (NZD/AUD) pair continues to be range bound. Trading over the past two weeks between 0.9190 (1.0880) and 0.9295 (1.0760) the pair remains in its happy place. We don’t expect a bounce from this range over the week even though we have a bunch of tier one data to publish. We see no surprises from today’s RBA announcement with the benchmark rate to remain at 1.50%. Thursday NZ Reserve Bank governor Adrian Orr is expected to leave rates unchanged at 1.75%. Even though statistics show the economy has grown over the past few months economists are still questioning this suggesting a slow down is on the horizon with business confidence remaining at low levels. Currently trading at 0.9230 (1.0835) Tuesday lunch.

NZD/GBP (GBP/NZD)

Brexit headlines boosted the British Pound (GBP) higher off the open Monday to 0.5100 (1.9610) against the New Zealand Dollar (NZD) but has edged higher during the London trading session. UK Services Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) printed down on expectations at 52.2 based on 53.4 markets were expecting showing a seven month low as firms brace for a slow 2019, the result the poorest since the 2016 Brexit referendum. Interest this week will be with Thursday’s RBNZ announcement and Fridays monthly UK GDP figures. Price action over the week could be anywhere if we throw Brexit into the mix.

 NZD/CAD

The New Zealand Dollar (NZD) started the week where it left off against the Canadian Dollar (CAD) pushing up from the open of 0.8680 to 0.8740 in thin Monday markets. Canada’s Poloz spoke overnight saying the neutral rate estimated at 2.5-3.5% is not a precise destination. It’s more like a neighbourhood - future rate hikes could be faster or slower. Two statements of complete meaningless garble. Early impressions are suggesting the Kiwi wants to go higher in the short term, a possible retest of 0.8820 is in sight with NZ employment data to print tomorrow with the official cash rate Thursday.

NZD/EURO (EURO/NZD)

The Euro (EUR) continued its decline last week against the New Zealand Dollar (NZD) dropping to 0.5840 (1.7130). We see further declines in the Euro likely through to Thursday’s RBNZ announcement where the cash rate is expected to remain unchanged at 1.75%. A retest of 0.5880 (1.7000) is the next target with a with a lack of Eurozone data to publish. The bullish channel from 0.5585 (1.7910) is still in play, we don’t see this being broken in the medium term.

NZD/YEN

Japan’s Kuroda spoke early Monday putting the Japanese Yen (JPY) on notice versus the New Zealand Dollar (NZD) the pair pushing higher off the open of 75.00 to 75.50 the 1 October high. It’s mostly NZ data to print over the week starting with employment data Wednesday. Risk factors could play a part with direction. RBNZ cash rate Thursday. With a head a shoulder pattern emerging on the chart we think the kiwi could retest 76.50 this week.

AUD/USD

The Australian Dollar (AUD) looks to be in the mood to continue last week’s bull rally and extend gains made mid to late week against the US Dollar. Last week’s Non-Farm Payroll release took the pair off the high of 0.7250 back to 0.7180 on USD strength after figures surprised to the upside. Ending the week Australian Retail Sales printed slightly down on expectations creating a short sell off in the Aussie. Price this week looks retest last week’s high, this will be largely based on today’s RBA Cash Rate announcement. If the Central Bank are dovish with future monetary policy as we expect due to recent data the Aussie will be pressured. Later in the week we also have the federal Reserve cash rate and statement with no change this time around from the 2.25%

AUD/GBP (GBP/AUD) 

The British Pound (GBP) gaped higher to 0.5525 (1.8090) on the weekly open against the Australian Dollar (AUD) after positive Brexit news bought back buyers into the Pound. Trading Tuesday at 0.5530 (1.8080) we have seen a slide below 0.5550 (1.8020) confirming a break of the bullish channel from 0.5350 (1.8700) of early October. Market interest will be on today’s RBA statement and cash rate with no change expected. A hawkish statement by governor Philip Lowe will certainly put further pressure on the Aussie heading into UK’s GDP Friday.

AUD/EURO (EURO/AUD)

This week’s price action in the Australian Dollar, Euro (AUD/EUR) pair should be no different to the last. Trading around 0.6320 (1.5820) Tuesday we expect upside momentum to drive the cross higher.  The Eurogroup met last night and discussed Italy’s budget woes with EU finance ministers calling for the Italian government to redraft the budget. The Eurogroup president Mario Centeno remains confident that Italy will agree to changing its spending plans despite Rome’s populist government insisting that it won’t do so. The Reserve Bank of Australian (RBA) will announce their cash rate today widely expected to be remain unchanged at 1.50%. Markets are predicting a hawkish tone with recent weak CPI data.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) has pushed higher off the weekly open to 81.70 against the Japanese Yen (JPY) after BoJ’s Kuroda put the Yen under pressure yesterday. A continuation of last weeks rally in price after Aussie Trade Balance figures surprised to the upside looks on the cards with 82.50 the next target, the three month high. Retails Sales took the Aussie briefly off its high last week when it printed at 0.2% based on 0.3% predictions. Focus now lies with today’s RBA 4.30 NZT - no surprises are expected.

All interest will be on the RBA cash rate announcement today 4.30 NZT and should reflect recent economic data with no change expected.

Market commentary:

Melbourne Cup runs today at 5.05pm NZT.
The potential future of Donald Trump's presidency could be decided this week with US Midterm elections taking place. The Democrats need only 23 further seats to make a total of 218 to take control of the House, polling starts Wednesday NZ time. The world's economies have enjoyed a buoyant year with the international Monetary Fund in April saying the planet was enjoying the most united upswing since 2010. The mood however has changed in October when they cut its global outlook saying global growth has plateaued. The change is being led by China with the weakest current stretch of performance since 2009 is expected to get worse unless a favorable deal can be negotiated in the trade war with the US. The Eurozone is also losing pace expanding in the third quarter less than the previous quarter as Germany and Italy staled. The big question now is if recent US growth can continue providing good results on the back of protectionism and higher interest rates heading into 2019 and provide a counterweight for the rest of the world.  Reports have indicated that a potential trade deal could be close between China and the US. Trump's lead adviser Kudlow has played this down when he said "no massive movement to deal with China" and "we're not on the cusp of a deal". Chinese manufacturers who have the misfortune of being on the list of affected companies who will have tariffs raised from 10% to 25% on a 1 January 2019 are flat out producing products for export into the US markets to make shipping deadlines before the due date. US Non-Farm Payroll employment increased by a healthy 250,000 jobs Friday for the month of October well up on the forecasted 190,000. Wage growth has risen by 3.1% year on year, this is the fastest increase since 2009. The greenback rallied along with the US 10 year treasury bond jumping 8 points to 3.21%. US equity markets turned negative - the Nasdaq falling 1.20%. Three central banks will release cash rate announcements this week starting with the RBA Tuesday with no change from the 1.5% expected. RBNZ Thursday with no change from 1.75% expected and Federal Reserve also who will keep their benchmark rate at 2.25%

Australia

The Australian Dollar eased back off its highs Friday after a disappointing close to equity markets dragged risk associated currencies lower. At one point trading back over the 0.7200 area against the big Dollar after Trade Balance figures buoyed Aussie sentiment posting a hefty 3.02 Billion trade Balance based on market expectations of 1.71 Billion. This week’s main economic news of interest is the RBA cash rate and statement due today at 4.30 NZT. Last week’s weaker than predicted CPI inflation data could impact the tone with the overall inflation number well below the 2-3% target for the 11th quarter in a row. Even with the economy in its 27th year without no recession the economy has dangerously high household debt and stagnant wage growth which is putting as squeeze on household spending. Even though net exports and capital expenditure are stimulating the economy these offer no real impetus for the RBA to increase its benchmark rate. No further economic data of note is due to be published over the week. Good luck in the Melbourne Cup.

New Zealand

The New Zealand Dollar held onto gains last week in the wake of a stronger US dollar. The kiwi was the strongest performer surprisingly out muscling its main rivals. Tagging along with the Aussie Dollar trading higher in the wake of surprising Aussie Trade and Chinese data, risk currencies did well. Its widely expected the RBNZ will keep rates on hold this week- Thursday, but a no hike wasn't always a dead cert with some market participants suggesting the cash rate would drop. With recent economic data suggesting rates will stay the same looking ahead to 2019 may not be the case. With US company earnings over, stock market moves will resume normal price action this week. With all three US indices falling into the weekly close momentum could resume to the downside dragging the kiwi lower. Certainly if the NZ unemployment rate drops to 4.4% from 4.5% Wednesday the opposite could be said.

United States

The US Midterm elections kick off this Tuesday with polling starting at 6.00am Tuesday (NY time). The battle for congress is heating up with the fate of Donald Trump's presidency on the line. As it stands the democrats need an additional 23 seats to make up 218 required to take back control of the senate and drive a stake through the hopes of Donald Trump's future plans at the helm of USA. Traditionally the voting turnout with midterm elections is low but with 33 million votes already on the table the turnout of voters is set to be the biggest turnout in over 50 years. The anti-immigration moves recently deployed by the president with the clampdown on asylum seekers this falls at the heart of the midterms with intensity building over race related rhetoric. If the Republicans are ousted from the house and hand over congress to the Democrats President Trump's agenda and campaign promises are sure to be revised. Most importantly if the Democrats were to take control of the House it would allow the Democrats to start impeachment proceedings against the President, obviously something Donald Trump is clearly hoping to avoid. The Federal Reserve will keep their cash rate on hold until the December meeting at 2.25%

Europe

The Euro reached a high last week of 1.1455 but was quick to give back gains closing around the 1.1380 area versus the greenback. Risk aversion overshadowed US Non- Farm Payroll announcements with the better than predicted number of 250,000 failing to really give the US Dollar a decent push. Profit taking allowed the EUR to drift lower amid reports circulating that the ECB will consider TLTRO (Targeted long term refinancing options) in the December ECB meeting with the central bank requiring more funds. The Euro was the third worst performing currency outside the Swiss Franc and the Japanese Yen for the second straight week with risk associated currencies getting the nod, along with new Brexit related risks dropping the Pound sparking a EUR based sell off late in the week. A very quiet economic Eurozone calendar this week will offer no real support for Euro with it lacking any concrete drivers. Last week’s second tier data was mainly disappointing suggesting the EURO could drift lower this week.

United Kingdom

Brexit headlines continue to occupy British media. UK's Prime Minister Theresa may looks to have secured concessions from the EU to keep Britain in a customs union. This includes Ireland which effectively solves recent issues of a hard Irish border thus pioneering the way for a negotiated Brexit deal. May is also in the throes of securing an "economic partnership" of sorts with the EU. The deal would give UK financial services companies access to European markets post Brexit. UK's Cabinet will catch up today with a further meeting on Friday in the hopes of gaining enough support for the EU to announce a special summit. May still has many cabinet folk who would love her job so she will be vigilant to dot the I's and cross the T's this week. The British Pound rallied off the low of 1.2700 against the US Dollar to climb back above the 1.3000 physiological level before easing back to 1.2980. UK Manufacturing data and quarterly GDP print Friday.

Japan

The Japanese Yen struggled to conger up any decent momentum over the week - the worst performing currency battled against every main player falling 1.17% against the US Dollar. Recovering equity markets and increased risk sentiment left investors leaving the Yen. Bank of Japan's Governor Kuroda said in a statement it was necessary to continue to ease monetary policy with slow inflation - but not the same as we have done in the past 5 years. The governor introduced a large scale asset program in 2013 and it was the best thing to do but now as the economy improves with solid corporate earnings and tight labour markets the bank recognises that continuing the monetary easing could affect financial stability, he said. At last week’s Bank of Japan (BoJ) meeting the BoJ kept policy the same including setting short term interest rates at -.1% and keep low interest rates for an extended period of time. Average Cash Earnings (value in the employment income collected by workers) releases Wednesday

Canada

The Canadian Dollar has lost value five straight weeks and continues to struggle shifting off the bottom of the table against the major currencies. Crude Oil a big contributing factor coming from a high around the first of October at 77.00 to trade 62.72 now. Soft Canadian job numbers Friday with the number of new employed people releasing at 11,200 based on market predictions of 12,700 dented any upside momentum - the CAD losing half a cent against the Dollar. However, the employment rate ticked lower to 5.8% below the estimate of 5.9%. Interestingly while the CAD has underperformed the economy grew 0.1% in August, the economy has been mostly performing well and remains on track for annualised growth of 2% for 2018. This week sees governor Poloz speak later today about financial markets, with no other tier one significant data to publish.

          Who is ordering attacks on activists in Ukraine?       Cache   Translate Page      

In Ukraine, activists are being attacked, and law enforcement is standing idle. The pressure on civil society has become systematic. RU

CCTV shot of the alleged attacker of Ekaterina Gandzyuk. Source: Police of the Kherson region.The attack on activist Kateryna Gandzyuk in the southern city of Kherson has become the last straw for Ukrainian civil society. On 31 July, an unidentified man doused Gandzyuk, who works for the executive committee of Kherson city council, with sulphur dioxide near the entrance to her apartment building. She was taken to hospital with burns on 30% of her body.

“I am almost sure that the person who ordered the attack has a uniform with epaulettes hanging in his wardrobe, and possibly more than one”, Gandzyuk told Ukrainskaya Pravda. Kateryna is well known for her civic activism, campaigning against police corruption and pro-Russian elements in the Kherson region. Indeed, she and her colleagues believe that this work was the reason for the attack.

Not trusting the police, who could have their own reasons for attacking Gandzyuk, activists demanded that the case be handed over to Ukraine’s Security Service. A month earlier, Kherson journalist Serhiy Nikitenko, another activist who like Gandzyuk had exposed the actions of pro-Russian forces in the area, was beaten up. In this sense, Kateryna says that the attack against her was not unexpected.

“After crimes (against activists) went unsolved in Odesa, and the Kherson police took 32 days to establish the fact that Nikitenko was a journalist, I felt it would be me next,” Kateryna Gandzyuk told friends and colleagues who visited her in hospital the day after the incident. “I’m not scared – it’s all part of my work,” she added.

Kateryna Gandzyuk. Source: Facebook.The local police initially classified the attack on Gandzyuk as hooliganism, but after the mayor of Kherson added his voice to those calling for a more serious qualification, they changed the charge to grievous bodily harm with the object of intimidation, and then changed it yet again – to attempted murder. On the fourth day after the attack, a suspect appeared: the police arrested Kherson resident Nikolay Novikov. The investigation later turned up a second potential attacker; the police posted his photo and asked the public to help identify him. They also established where the acid had been bought.

However, activists and journalists who are carrying out a parallel investigation believe that the police are looking in the wrong direction and that Novikov was not responsible for the assault.

“Anyone who looks at the evidence will see that it was tweaked to fit someone who looked like him, nothing more,” says Serhiy Nikitenko. “The main evidence they have against him is that his phone was switched on that day. They just found their suspect through the photo-fit image that we published. There’s lots of things that don’t match.”

“The complete impunity of the attackers has lead to total lawlessness. Since 2016, journalists, activists, rights campaigners and bloggers have been murdered and attacked, one by one, all over the country”

“I sympathise with the poor guy who was arrested in my case – it’s 99% certain that he’s a random choice,” said Gandzyuk. “I realise that they had to calm down the media, but they did it at the price of his life. Friends I was with who saw my attacker say that it wasn’t him.”

Several witnesses who spoke to journalists during their investigations have said that on the day of the assault he was with them at the seaside.

On 7 August, Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko announced that the case had been passed to the State Security Services (SBU). According to his statement, the attempted murder with extreme brutality was carried out on the orders of law enforcement and state organs, with the aim of destabilising the socio-political situation in southern Ukraine.

Evil must be punished

The number of attacks on civil society activists in Ukraine has risen steeply over the last few years, and the form these attacks take is shocking.

On the same day as the assault on Gandzyuk, an activist was killed in Berdyansk, in the southern Zaporizhya region. Vitaly Oleshko, a veteran of Kyiv’s anti-terrorist operation who took part in the battle for the city of Ilovaisk, continued to fight after returning to civilian life – against businessman and former parliamentary deputy for the Party of Regions Aleksandr Ponomarev, who more or less runs the city. Oleshko was shot in the back with a rifle in his own yard, with his wife and daughter standing nearby.

Vitaly Oleshko. Source: Facebook.A little more than a month earlier, in June, a tragedy took place in Eskhar, in the Kharkiv region. Mykola Bychko, 23, was found hanged in a forest, and his fellow activists immediately said that they didn’t believe it was suicide. They believe his death was connected with his activism: he had recently been investigating the pollution of village reservoirs and corrupt practices associated with sewage treatment plants in Eskhar.

“The complete impunity of the attackers has lead to total lawlessness. Since 2016, journalists, activists, rights campaigners and bloggers have been murdered and attacked, one by one, all over the country,” the organisers of the “Evil must be Punished” action told people who gathered outside the Ukrainian Interior Ministry in Kyiv on 1 August . “The frequency and intensity of these attacks is increasing, but not one of them has been properly investigated by the law enforcement agencies or brought to court.”

The list of uninvestigated cases that the activists have brought to police attention begins with the killing of journalist Pavlo Sheremet in June 2016. The investigation has still not found any suspects.

The people taking part in the “Evil must be Punished” protest in Kyiv demanded not only the effective investigation of attacks on activists and the dismissal of the top brass of the Kherson regional Ministry of the Interior, but also the resignation of Ministry of the Interior head Arsen Avakov. They also demanded that Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko and SBU head Vasily Gritsak accept personal responsibility for the attacks.

The attack on Gandzyuk was condemned by both the UN delegation to Ukraine and the American Embassy. Transparency International Ukraine called on the police “to finally show society that attacks on civil activists are crimes for which their perpetrators must definitely answer”.

Criminal conglomerates, repeated attacks and discreditation

“The most obvious reason is the absence of any reform in the system,” says Tetiana Pechonchyk, head of Kyiv’s Human Rights Information Centre, when asked why attacks are on the increase. Police reform, announced in 2015 has only affected beat officers. Their supposed reassessment was also a failure – only 7% were dismissed, and some of those were reinstated through the courts. The reform didn’t apply to investigative departments.

According to the Association of Ukrainian Human Rights Monitors on Law Enforcement’s annual report: “We’ve gone back to the old times, when the police report monthly on how the number of crimes reported has fallen while the number solved has risen. This ‘bubble’ always eventually bursts.”

“Reforms have taken place, and they are continuing,” Avakov told Liga earlier this year, as he recalls the work accomplished during Ukraine’s most difficult time: the creation of the National Guard, the formation of volunteer battalions within the Interior Ministry, the settlement of the situation in Kharkiv in April 2014. And also the phasing out of the State Traffic and Road Safety Inspectorates and transport and veterinary police and their replacement by “up-to-date government service structures”. He also lists the successes of the Cyber Police, the National Interpol Bureau and the Migration and Border Services and the renewal of the State Emergency Service.

All rights reserved.Nevertheless, the polls carried out by the Democratic Initiatives Foundation and the Razumkov Centre Sociological Service show that public trust in the law enforcement agencies is in decline. Experts polled by the sociologists believe that the police, the Prosecutor General’s office and the courts are holding up reform.

Police corruption is yet another reason, says Pechonchyk, for cases such as attacks on civil activists not being investigated. “The law enforcement bodies often merge and form ‘conglomerates’ with the authorities, dishonest business owners and local bullies and criminal elements,” she says.

The Human Rights Information Centre, which Pechonchyk directs, has been documenting attacks since 2014 and has noticed several trends. Several groups of activists tend to be targeted. The first is the anti-corruption activists fighting for transparency in government finance and against corrupt practices. In July, for example, Vitaly Shabunin, the head of the Anti-Corruption Centre, was splashed with brilliant green paint during a protest outside the Specialised Anti-Corruption Procurator’s office and received chemical burns to his eyes. The police arrested two attackers, filed a charge sheet and let them go. The attack was classified as hooliganism.

In Kharkiv in August 2017, Dmytro Bulakh, the head of the city’s Anti-Corruption Centre and member of the Regional Council, suffered a beating. He believes that the attack was linked to the activities of the centre, which investigates financial machinations in the city and regional institutional bodies, among them a cooperative operation in which Kharkiv’s mayor Gennady Kernes is involved. Another attack took place just a few weeks later – the victim this time was Yevhen Lisichkin, an expert with the Anti-Corruption Centre.

The second group of activists are the environmentalists, who oppose tree-felling and dodgy construction companies. One known incident here involved the beating up of four activists in the Kyiv region – Aleksandr Kulibabchuk, Vadim Mashtabey, Yevhen Melnichuk and Viktor Barkholenko. They fight against tree-felling and illegal housing development on behalf of the local authorities in the towns of Buche and Irpen.

“In small towns you very often find a coalition consisting of of the local authority, local criminal elements, construction firms and service sector businesses. When people start objecting, they find themselves under pressure from all sides”

“The dividing line between anti-corruption activists and environmentalists can also be pretty vague,” Tetiana Pechonchyk tells me. “Activists fighting for a clean environment and land rights can sometimes uncover instances of corruption as they go along. They are de facto also anti-corruption activists.

“In small towns you very often find a coalition consisting of of the local authority, local criminal elements, construction firms and service sector businesses. When people start objecting, they find themselves under pressure from all sides,” Pechonchyk explains.The result is that these attacks are only followed through by the police in individual cases.

The final group that is particularly subject to violence is LGBT activists: Amnesty International registered 30 attacks on them by far right groups in Ukraine in the last year alone. And in only one case were the villains brought to justice.

“Our monitoring activities tell us that in the overwhelming majority of cases, the activists being assaulted are completely defenceless before their attackers. The only chance of having a case investigated is to get the attention of the media – then the police will start doing something,” says Pechonchyk. “But in most cases, the attackers get away with it.”

August 19: attack on the “Platform TU”, Mariupol. Source: TU platform.Another trend is repeat attacks on activists who continue their activities after they are initially attacked: that’s what happened to Mykhailo Berchuk, an environmental activist from the Kirovograd region. He was beaten up in the autumn of 2016, when he became interested in waste dumping from a local factory producing meat, ketchup and mayonnaise. The second time he was attacked was in the spring of 2017 – this time they fractured his skull and he ended up in intensive care. A year and a half later, the police have been unable to identify his attackers, despite the fact that the attack happened one morning in a busy area, the car’s number plate was noted down and there were witnesses.

Sometimes the attacks aren’t physical: they can be smear campaigns against activists and well-known anti-corruption organisations. Trumped-up charges are an example of this kind of persecution.

In 2017, a case was initiated against the Ukrainian Patients organisation and the Living with HIV Network – they were accused of stealing grant money, as well as cooperating with the Russian security service and separatist groups in the occupied “LNR” and “DNR”. The organisations’ office was subjected to a search, but the case was closed in February 2018 for want of evidence. The members of the patient organisations believe that it was revenge for their anti-corruption activity.

“On the one hand, the law enforcement system can’t effectively investigate real attacks on activists, while on the other, it is busy fabricating evidence and concocting non-existent cases out of non-existent crimes,” concludes Tetiana.

A step backwards

In its recent report, “Nations in Transit: Confronting Illiberalism”, Freedom House notes the decrease in indicators of democratic processes in Ukraine – a situation that the report’s authors haven’t seen since the Revolution of Dignity in 2014.

The reasons listed by Freedom House researchers include growing activity on the part of radical groups, assaults, physical violence and attempts to restrict the work of NGOs. This last issue is to some extent connected with recent legislative changes.

In March 2017, President Poroshenko supported changes to the law “On Opposing Corruption” passed by Ukraine’s parliament, which requires members of anti-corruption organisations to file tax declarations online. Despite protests and strong criticism by EU, US and Canadian representatives, the law is still in force. A month ago, a group of 65 MPs appealed to the Constitutional Court to have this measure repealed.

In June 2018, a new draft law appeared on the statute books, its aim to counteract “foreign influence”. It requires charities and NGOs who receive funding from outside Ukraine to declare their sources of income.

“Having accused NGOs and journalists of anti-nationalism, politicians are now trying to exclude legitimate voices from public debate just because they criticise the government,” says Nate Shenkan, the director of Freedom House’s Nations in Transit Project, about the worsening situation with civil rights.

Rights campaigners believe that the upcoming election will worsen the freedom of speech situation in the country

“The battle for power will be intense and very brutal,” Freedom House’s director of operations in Ukraine Matthew Schaaf tells me. “We are expecting a continuation of what we have been seeing already – physical violence combined with legislative attempts to limit the activities of activists and civil rights campaigners. The forecast for the near future is not very good, unfortunately.”

In April 2018, activists and organisations responded to this situation by setting up a Coalition for the Protection of Civil Society in Ukraine. A joint memorandum was signed by nearly 30 organisations, including the Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union, Freedom House’s Ukrainian delegation, the Human Rights Information Centre, the Civil Initiative East-SOS and many other civil and human rights initiatives.

The memorandum concludes with the following statement: “The Ukrainian Government must recognise the important and legitimate role of human rights defenders and activists, who act in the interests of the public, and instead of hindering them, to assist them in their work, as well as to ensure efficient investigation of all instances of threats, attacks, intimidation, oppression or any other type of persecution.”

Freedom House’s Matthew Schaaf has announced that the coalition will soon have a website with a map showing all the cases of clampdowns on civil society, which will help to provide an accurate measure of the issue over the whole of Ukraine, including all its regions.

Today, Kateryna Gandzyuk is in Kyiv’s burns centre, where she was flown from Kherson. She has had several operations in recent weeks and will need several more. Her condition is still serious. Meanwhile, the Prosecutor’s Office has now closed the case against initial suspect Nikolay Novikov due to lack of evidence. Five further suspects have been detained.

Back home, a banner has appeared on Kherson’s city hall. It reads: “Excuse me, but who ordered the attack on Gandzyuk?”

          Senso, Nov 10      Cache   Translate Page      
Visconti’s first costume drama abandons his earlier neorealist style for a lush, near-operatic account of love and betrayal during the 1860s Italian resistance to Austrian rule. The film’s masterful opening sequence introduces its themes: patriotism and doomed love, mirrored to a swooning aria, as a performance of a Verdi opera triggers the audience to chant anti-Austrian slogans, and brings together a cynical young Austrian soldier (Farley Granger) with an older, sensual Italian countess (Alida Valli). Smitten with the downmarket charm of the young man, this “wanton countess” (the film’s American release title) soon abandons her husband, and subsequently, as Italy grows more revolutionary, her country. Visconti integrates enough historical accuracy and explicit political allegory to please the most scholarly Marxist (and therefore to have displeased the Italian censors, who insisted on many cuts), but Senso is foremost, as the title indicates, an overwhelmingly sensual experience, luxuriant and baroque.

          Copripiumino, quale scegliere?      Cache   Translate Page      

Quest'autunno è un autunno davvero pazzo. Temperature alte fino a pochi giorni fa, poi le piogge e i venti pazzeschi e il freddo. Poi il caldo e di nuovo il freddo, non si capisce più niente. La sera poi non ne parliamo, meno male che abbiamo la stufa in casa perché siamo in quella stagione stupida in cui è troppo presto per accendere i caloriferi, ma allo stesso tempo, se stai fermo in casa, muori congelato. 

Ho cambiato i letti almeno tre volte: la coperta imbottita, il plaid, la coperta imbottita + il plaid. Al piumone non ci sono ancora arrivata perché se lo metto ora, a gennaio cosa faccio? Mi seppellisco sotto duemila coperte? E ho preso una decisione, ho comprato un piumone mezza stagione. Non lo avevo mai fatto e mi viene da chiedermi, perché? Perché, Sarah, non avevi mai comprato un piumone mezza stagione? Mai decisione è stata più azzeccata!

Ah-ah, vi vedo tutti pronti con le dita sulla tastiera pronti a chiedermi dove abbia acquistato il mio piumone strafigo e no, il colosso svedese non c'entra nulla. Che poi diciamocelo, l'Ikea è fighissima per tutto, ma stendiamo un velo pietoso per quanto riguarda piumoni e copripiumini. O dormi con i piedi scoperti o hai le spalle fuori. Oppure sei alto 1.50 m e riesci a coprirti tutto, ma scordati di rimboccare il copripiumino sotto al materasso altrimenti ti sei fottuto almeno 40 cm di buono e altro che spalle scoperte!


Ho compiuto una bella ricerca e alla fine sono capitata sul sito di Dreamin'101. Non cercavo il classico copripiupimo in lino, quello già ce l'ho, ne cercavo un altro che avesse due requisiti fondamentali: che fosse morbido e che fosse grande, enormemente grande.

Quando ho visto le misure (ben 250 x 230 cm) e letto "voile di puro cotone" ho capito che era quello il copripiumino che cercavo. E amici ve lo stranconsiglio alla grande, è una meraviglia e il prezzo rispecchia la qualità del materiale. È un prodotto realizzato con ottime materie prime, sia per quanto riguarda il tessuto che l'imbottitura. I fiocchi di piumino sono i più pregiati e tutti i prodotti che trovate sul sito sono realizzati a mano da esperti artigiani. E cosa che mi è piaciuta ancora di più scoprire, tutto questo è made in Italy

Vi dico anche che acquistando su Dreamin'101 si risparmia la metà rispetto al prezzo di mercato perché tutto passa dal produttore direttamente al consumatore. La materia prima, la piuma, non viene acquistata da terzi e sia la lavorazione che il prodotto finito avvengono internamente quindi ci sono meno passaggi e meno costi aggiuntivi. Tutta questa pappardella è perché voglio dirvi che alla fine il prezzo finale è davvero vantaggioso.

Un'altra cosa che mi ha fatto decidere di scegliere quel copripiumino è stato il sapere che l'azienda possiede un'etica professionale. Sono attenti agli sprechi e al rispetto degli animali, tant'è che la loro filiera lavora in totale assenza di pratiche dannose per gli animali. Parte del fabbisogno energetico per la lavorazione è garantito da pannelli fotovoltaici e da cogeneratore a biomasse (ho studiato eh!) e gli scarti delle lavorazioni non vengono buttati, ma vengono utilizzati come fertilizzante ad uso agricolo. 

È un prodotto di eccellenza e sono felicissima di consigliarvelo.

          Quality of the air they breathe is potentially lethal for billions of people in almost all areas of       Cache   Translate Page      
https://www.aneddoticamagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/Air-quality-monitoring-New-Delhi-India.jpg

From the poorest or least developed countries (something that often justifies using high-impact technologies and bad energy sources, claiming they have the right to close the gap with the developed countries) to the most developed and industrialized countries (which do not seem able to make good use of their economic wealth and their technological heritage).


Two reports confirm this state of the art. The first is the report by WHO Air Pollution and Child Health: prescribing clean air. Around 93% of girls and boys under 15 years of age – 1.8 billion people – breathe air that is so polluted that it poses a serious risk to health and development. In 2016, 600 thousand children and adolescents died of acute lower respiratory tract infections caused by air pollution. The problem, underlines the document, concerns both developing countries, where 98% of children under the age of 5 breathe levels of ultra-fine dust above the limit set by the WHO, and those with high income, where the percentage is nonetheless more than 50%. “Polluted air is poisoning millions of children and ruining their lives,” said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General.

The report, presented at the first global Conference on Air Pollution and Health organized by the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, confirms that the consequences of the pollution of the air are undeniable: about a third of the deaths each year in the world are due to stroke, lung cancer or heart disease caused by air pollution. According to WHO data, nine out of ten people in the world breathe polluted air. And this slow death begins at an early age.




These effects are confirmed by another report, Air quality in Europe 2018, published by the European Environment Agency (EEA). Analyzing official data on air quality reported (in 2016) by more than 2,500 monitoring stations, the researchers calculated the consequences for human health of excesses of particulate matter (PM), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and tropospheric ozone (O3 ). According to the report, these are the main causes of damage to human health: in 2015, “PM2.5 concentrations caused about 422 thousand premature deaths in 41 European countries, of which about 39 thousand in the 28 EU member states”. According to the EEA, the years of life lost are greater in the largest economies of the continent and, in relative terms (calculated on 100 thousand inhabitants), are the prerogative of Central and Eastern European countries. Despite slow improvements, the study emphasizes, air pollution continues to exceed the limits and guidelines of the European Union and the World Health Organization, and “still represents a danger to human health and the environment”.

Once again, the percentages are impressive: in Europe, around 95% of Europeans are exposed to PM2.5, NO2 and O3 emissions higher than the tolerable limits. For particulate matter (PM2.5, particles with a diameter of 2.5 micrometres or less), the percentage of the EU-28 urban population exposed was 6% in 2016, down compared to 7% of the previous year. But if we rely on the guidelines and limits set by the WHO (stricter), about 74% of the EU urban population is exposed to higher concentrations.


According to the WHO researchers, the exposure to PM2.5 would have caused the death of about 422 thousand people in 41 countries in 2015. It is true that in Europe, in some cases improvements have been made: compared to 1990 the premature deaths due to PM2.5 have been reduced by about half a million, but the road is still very long and as for other sectors, the results are not at all homogeneous across the continent.

Nitrogen dioxide annual values continue to be widely exceeded throughout Europe. In 2016, 7% of the EU-28 urban population lived in areas with concentrations higher than the EU annual limit value and WHO guidelines. Even in this case the consequences are lethal: exposure to the NO2 in the world would cause premature death for about 79,000 people in 41 countries.




The presence of these substances is particularly dangerous in Italy, where the number of premature deaths confirm the negative record: in 2015 the PM2.5 concentrations in our country were responsible for 60,600 premature deaths, those of NO2 of another 20,500 and those of O3 another 3,200. No other European country has an air quality responsible for so many victims of air pollution (exception of Germany for the deaths caused by PM2.5).

In Italy, the highest number of deaths caused by the air quality is in the north where more than 95% of citizens millions and millions of men and women, above all, children pay with its own health it follows and excessive emissions of pollutants. Of the 3.9 million people living in areas with simultaneous and regular overruns (daily for the Pm10 and annuals for nitrogen dioxide and ozone), 3.7 million live in the North of the Peninsula.

“Atmospheric pollution is an invisible killer and we must intensify efforts to tackle the causes – concludes Hans Bruyninckx, executive director of the European Environment Agency – In terms of air pollution, road transport emissions are often more harmful than those from other sources, as they originate at ground level and tend to to occur in cities, close to people “.

Consequences of the inability to limit emissions of polluting substances hit the least responsible: according to the experts of Air Quality Europe 2018, due to pollution, northern Italy is the worst place for children where to live. “Addressing these sectors in an integrated way can offer clear benefits for both air quality and climate, and will help improve our health and well-being,” said EEA Executive Director Hans Bruyninckx.

“I really appreciate this report by the European Environment Agency,” said Karmenu Vella, EU Commissioner for the Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries. “It shows us that air policy works, but it also reminds us that we need to make it work even better to reach clean air across Europe, for all citizens. The European Commission has resolutely acted on air pollution and will continue to work with Member States to ensure that air quality standards are fully applied on the ground “.


The truth is that in Europe and in the world people continue to die because of the “dirty” air they breathe. And nobody has been able to stop the decisions made by governments (such as opening – or not closing – coal-fired power stations. Or favoring road and sea transport. And many others). According to the WHO, more than 90% of children under the age of 15 in the world breathe polluted air that is the cause of 600 thousand child deaths due to the smog breathed in and out of the house. Deaths on the conscience of the governments of those states, but also on that of all those who pretend they not to know what their children are breathing…

The unlikely coalition running Italy has one thing that unites it – hostility to the EU

Italy’s most recent general election, in March, triggered a political revolution. The consequences are now being felt across the continent. And revolution is the right word to describe what happened. The established parties on both left and right were simply swept aside in favour of the Five Star Movement and the League (formerly the Northern League). Neither was around when the Italian constitution was approved; neither played a role in Italy’s postwar reconstruction; and neither had a part in the foundation of the EU and Nato. Now these new forces have joined together to give voice to the deepening anxiety of the middle classes, an anxiety affecting attitudes to every type of institution, be it national, European or global.

          Pompeo exempts Iran's Chabahar Port from sanctions      Cache   Translate Page      

[USA], Nov 7 (ANI): United States Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has approved sanctions exemption for the development of Iran's Chabahar Port, which is related to Afghanistan's economic development and reconstruction assistance.

In a statement, a US State Department spokesperson told ANI, "After extensive consideration, the Secretary (Pompeo) has provided for an exception from the imposition of certain sanctions under the Iran Freedom and Counter-Proliferation Act of 2012 (IFCA) with respect to the development of Chabahar Port and the construction of an associated railway and for the shipment of non-sanctionable goods through the Port for Afghanistan's use, as well as Afghanistan's continued imports of Iranian petroleum products.?"

The spokesperson added that the exception is related to the reconstruction assistance and economic development for Afghanistan.

"These activities are vital for the ongoing support of Afghanistan's growth and humanitarian relief," the spokesperson said.

"The President's South Asia strategy underscores our ongoing support of Afghanistan's economic growth and development as well as our close partnership with India. We seek to build on our close relationships with both countries as we execute a policy of maximum pressure to change the Iranian regime's destabilising policies in the region and beyond," the spokesperson added.

India considers the Chabahar Port a key strategic asset, giving it access to land-locked Afghanistan while bypassing Pakistan. The sanctions, which came into effect on Monday, had threatened New Delhi's ability to acquire financing for the port's development.

The Chabahar Port complex is expected to pave the way for millions of dollars in trade and is being developed as part of a new transportation corridor for land-locked Afghanistan. Both India and Iran had signed an agreement worth USD 85 million to develop the strategic port in south-eastern Iran.

On November 5, the Donald Trump administration had imposed the "toughest-ever" sanctions on Iran's banking, energy and shipping industries, in a move aimed at altering the "behaviour" of the country's regime.

The US will also penalise countries for importing oil and foreign companies that do business with certain Iranian entities. However, it granted waivers for oil sanctions to eight countries -- China, India, Italy, Greece, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey. (ANI)

Netanyahu secretly met Omani FM in Germany — report-Israeli TV says February talks helped pave way for PM’s visit to Muscat; discussion said to have focused on Iran, advancing bilateral ties-By TOI staff-6 November 2018

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met secretly with Oman’s foreign minister in February, helping lay the foundations for the premier’s visit to the Gulf sultanate last month, Israeli television reported Friday,According to Channel 10 news, Netanyahu’s meeting with Yusuf bin Alawi was held on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference, a major gathering of top political and defense leaders from across the world.The meeting was put together by Mossad head Yossi Cohen who played the lead role in the contacts between Israel and Oman, the report said.The report, which cited an unnamed senior Israeli official, said the meeting was the first between Israeli and Omani political figures since the Mossad-led outreach to Oman began in April 2017.The official told the network Netanyahu and bin Alawi discussed Iran and advancing ties between the countries.Like most Arab states, Israel and Oman do not have formal diplomatic relations, though officials from the two countries have previously met.Netanyahu’s surprise visit to Muscat in October to meet with Omani Sultan Qaboos bin Said was the first of its kind by an Israeli leader in over two decades and highlighted the growing thaw between Israel and Gulf states.The Prime Minister’s Office said after the trip Netanyahu and his wife Sara were invited to the Omani capital by Qaboos “after lengthy contacts between the two countries.”Israel and Oman said in a joint statement the two leaders discussed “ways to advance the peace process in the Middle East as well as several matters of joint interest regarding the achievement of peace and stability in the Middle East.”Though neither country directly mentioned Iran in statements after the meeting, analysts noted Oman could serve as a backdoor channel to Tehran.Though a member of the Saudi-dominated Gulf Cooperation Council, Oman has stayed out of the rivalry between Iran and Saudi Arabia and often acted as a regional mediator. It notably hosted secret talks between US and Iranian officials that helped lead to the 2015 nuclear deal curbing Tehran’s nuclear program, an agreement strongly opposed by Netanyahu.The Channel 10 report said neither Israel nor Oman informed the United States of their warming diplomatic ties. The meeting between Netanyahu and Qaboos was welcomed by the White House, with an envoy for US President Donald Trump saying it was a “helpful step for our peace efforts.”Following the meeting in Oman, bin Alawi urged other Middle East states to accept Israel and said the country would help promote peace efforts between Israel and the Palestinians.Speaking at the same conference, Bahraini Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa expressed backing for Oman’s efforts to promote Israeli-Palestinian peace, and Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir said peace talks would help normalize diplomatic ties between Israel and the Arab world, according to Reuters.Bin Alawi this week travelled to the West Bank city of Ramallah to update Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas on the meeting between Qaboos and Netanyahu.Palestinian officials have largely remained silent on Netanyahu’s trip to Muscat, though top negotiator Saeb Erekat said the Arab world should remain committed to the Arab Peace Initiative.The proposal offers a normalization of diplomatic ties and a formal end to the Israeli-Arab conflict in exchange for the establishment of a Palestinian state on the so-called 1967 lines and a “just” solution to the refugee issue.Israel has previously offered support for some of the initiative’s tenets but balked at others pertaining to refugees and returning the Golan Heights to Syrian control.

Khashoggi killing: Erdogan accuses ‘highest levels’ of Saudi gov’t-Turkish president criticizes authorities in Riyadh for refusing to answer key questions about journalist’s murder-By AFP-NOV 6,18

ANKARA, Turkey — Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the order to murder Jamal Khashoggi came from “the highest levels” of the Saudi government Friday as he promised no let-up in the hunt for his killers.A month on from Khashoggi’s murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Erdogan said he did “not believe for a second” that King Salman was to blame.But he pointedly failed to absolve Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of responsibility for unleashing a “death squad” against the outspoken Saudi journalist whose death has badly tainted the kingdom’s de facto ruler.And in an editorial for Khashoggi’s former employer, The Washington Post, Erdogan accused authorities in Riyadh of refusing to answer key questions about the murder, despite their arrest of 18 suspects a fortnight ago.Erdogan’s comments came shortly after one of his top lieutenants charged that Khashoggi’s dismembered body was “dissolved” in the consulate as part of an effort to leave no trace of the killing.“Over the course of the past month, Turkey has moved heaven and earth to shed light on all aspects of this case. As a result of our efforts, the world has learned that Khashoggi was killed in cold blood by a death squad, and it has been established that his murder was premeditated,” Erdogan wrote in The Post.“We know that the perpetrators are among the 18 suspects detained in Saudi Arabia. We also know that those individuals came to carry out their orders: Kill Khashoggi and leave. Finally, we know that the order to kill Khashoggi came from the highest levels of the Saudi government.”But he said his government would keep asking other questions “the Saudi authorities have refused to answer”, such as the whereabouts of Khashoggi’s body and who ordered his assassination.The murder of the royal insider-turned-dissident has provoked widespread outrage and sharp criticism from Washington, usually the staunchest of allies.While President Donald Trump has ruled out halting arms deal with Riyadh as a punishment, his administration has effectively withdrawn support for the Saudi-led coalition’s war in Yemen in a stark illustration of the cooling of ties.Addressing mourners at a memorial service in Washington on Friday, the murdered journalist’s fiancee called on Trump to back Turkey’s efforts to investigate his death.“I would like to send this message to Mr Trump: I would like him to support Turkey’s legal efforts in trying to bring light to the situation and to discover the whereabouts of his body,” Hatice Cengiz said in a recorded message.Turkey’s chief prosecutor said this week that Khashoggi was strangled as soon as he entered the consulate and also confirmed the body was dismembered.Yasin Aktay, an advisor to Erdogan, hinted in an article published on Friday that the body may even have been destroyed in acid.“We now see that it wasn’t just cut up, they got rid of the body by dissolving it,” an official in Turkey’s ruling party, he told the Hurriyet newspaper.“According to the latest information we have, the reason they cut up the body is it was easier to dissolve it.”A Turkish official has previously told The Post that “biological evidence” found in the consulate garden indicated the body was likely disposed of near the murder scene.Saudi authorities have denied Turkish police permission to search a well in the garden, but allowed them to take water samples for analysis, according to local reports.The murder has strained the decades-old alliance between the United States and Saudi Arabia, with Trump calling it “one of the worst cover-ups in history”.Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whose country shares Riyadh’s hostility to Iran, condemned the murder but stressed the need for stability in Saudi Arabia.“It is very important for the stability of the world, for the region and for the world, that Saudi Arabia remain stable,” Netanyahu told reporters Friday on a visit to Bulgaria.After initially insisting Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed, then saying he died in a brawl during an interview gone wrong, the Saudi regime admitted he was killed, blaming a “rogue operation”.The crown prince has denounced the murder as “repulsive” and denied any involvement.

Toronto police release remains of Bruce McArthur's alleged victims to families-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-November 6, 2018

Toronto police say some of the men believed to be victims of alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur can now be laid to rest.Acting Insp. Hank Idsinga says investigators have released some of the remains of the eight men found buried at and near a Toronto home where McArthur used to work as a landscaper.Idsinga declined to say exactly how many sets of remains have been released, calling the effort a "work in progress" that he hopes concludes "sooner than later."McArthur, 67, stands accused of killing eight men, most of whom had with ties to Toronto's gay community between 2010 and 2017.They are: Skandaraj Navaratnam, 40, Andrew Kinsman, 49, Selim Esen, 44, and Abdulbasir Faizi, 44. Bottom row, from left to right: Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam, 37, Dean Lisowick, 47, Soroush Mahmudi, 50, and Majeed Kayhan, 58.Investigators spent months recovering and identifying the remains, which were found in planters and a ravine near the home.Police also sifted through past cases and combed other properties as part of their probe, but Idsinga has previously said that there is currently no evidence to suggest any additional alleged victims.

B.C. wildfire action plan focuses on collaboration with First Nations-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-November 6, 2018

After two record-breaking wildfire seasons, the B.C. government released a new plan this week to improve emergency management.A large focus of the action plan is working with First Nation communities, said Doug Donaldson, B.C.'s Minister of Forests. These communities can provide resources in several ways, including their knowledge of burn areas and manpower.The plan commits to creating a new dedicated First Nations coordination operational staff with opportunities for First Nations and emergency managers to discuss strategies, and to provide training and public education resources to better support the needs of First Nation communities.The new action plan includes strategies to anticipate areas most at risk for fire, and to organize multiple resources quickly during the peak of wildfire season."When fires actually broke out in nearby communities we would have the incident management team come in and right away meet with First Nations… to incorporate local knowledge into the fire action plan,"  Donaldson told All Points West host Robyn Burns."In the past, those meetings would take perhaps seven days to get underway."Training communities-Communities in wildfire-affected areas will be trained in prevention and safety practices through the Community Resiliency Investment Program to mitigate risk of damage to homes, according to Donaldson.Prescribed burns are also included in the report and he said they plan to make more progress with this practice than in the past."We're looking at a multi-year prescribed burning project, and that includes assessing the training required both within our own staff… but also increased capacity within communities to be able to do that," he said.Recovery of the land and local economies are outlined in the report with plans for reforestation, expedited cutting permits for salvageable timber, and ensuring the annual allowable cut is proportional to the affected supply.With files from All Points West.

Iran’s Khamenei: Trump has ‘disgraced’ US prestige-Lashing out at Washington days before sanctions to be reimposed, supreme leader says America is in decline and will be the ultimate loser against Islamic republic-By Agencies-TOI-NOV 6,18

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Saturday that US President Donald Trump has “disgraced” US prestige and would be the ultimate loser from renewing sanctions on the Islamic republic.“This new US president… has disgraced the remnant of America’s prestige and that of liberal democracy. America’s hard power, that is to say their economic and military power, is declining too,” he said on his Persian Twitter account, quoting a speech in Tehran.A defiant Khamenei dismissed the renewed US sanctions — including an oil embargo — that take effect on Monday.“The challenge between the US and Iran has lasted for 40 years so far and the US has made various efforts against us: military, economic and media warfare,” he said.“There’s a key fact here: in this 40-year challenge, the defeated is the US and the victorious is the Islamic republic.”On Friday, the Trump administration restored US sanctions on Iran that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal, but carved out exemptions for eight countries that can still import oil from the Islamic Republic without penalty.The sanctions take effect Monday and cover Iran’s shipping, financial and energy sectors. They are the second batch the administration has re-imposed since Trump withdrew from the landmark accord in May.The 2015 deal, one of former president Barack Obama’s biggest diplomatic achievements, gave Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program, which many believed it was using to develop atomic weapons. Trump repeatedly denounced the agreement as the “worst ever” negotiated by the United States and said it gave Iran too much in return for too little.In a statement issued Friday night, Trump said, “Our objective is to force the regime into a clear choice: either abandon its destructive behavior or continue down the path toward economic disaster.”Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the sanctions are “aimed at fundamentally altering the behavior of the Islamic Republic of Iran.” He has issued a list of 12 demands that Iran must meet to get the sanctions lifted that include an end to its support for terrorism and military engagement in Syria and a halt to nuclear and ballistic missile development. He said US allies such as Turkey, Italy, India, Japan and South Korea will receive temporary waivers allowing them to continue to import Iranian petroleum products as they move to end such imports entirely.But proponents as well as the other parties to the deal — Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the European Union — have vehemently defended it. The Europeans have mounted a drive to save the agreement without the US, fearing that the new sanctions will drive Iran to pull out and resume all of its nuclear work.Friday’s announcement comes just days before congressional midterm elections in the US, allowing Trump to highlight his decision to withdraw from the deal — a move that was popular among Republicans.Washington says it wants a new deal with Iran, curtailing its regional interventions and missile program — demands which have been flatly rejected by Tehran.

Iran inaugurates production line of local fighter jets ahead of US sanctions-Defense minister says domestically made Kowsar aircraft symbolizes Islamic Republic’s battle against ‘global ‘arrogance’ led by the US-By TOI staff-NOV 6,18

Iran on Saturday inaugurated the production line of its domestically produced fighter jet, a day after the Trump administration announced the reimposition of remaining US sanctions on Tehran to ramp up economic pressure on the Islamic Republic.Defense Minister Gen. Amir Hatami said the production line highlighted the capabilities of Iranian experts despite “sanctions by enemies,” according to state-run news outlet Press TV.Hatami said inaugurating production of the Kowsar fighter was “the very symbol of fighting the [global] arrogance and standing against the excessive demands of the imperial system, which is being led by the Great Satan, the United States.”Speaking at an industrial complex in the Isfahan province, Hatami added that the “fourth-generation” fighter, with “advanced maneuvering capability” and multi-purpose radar would be service the entire Iranian Air Force “soon.”Hatamui’s announcement comes days before the US sanctions lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal were set to be reimposed on the Islamic Republic. The sanctions take effect Monday and cover Iran’s shipping, financial and energy sectors. They are the second batch the administration has reimposed since Trump withdrew from the international accord in May.Iran promotion of HESA Kowsar upgrade assembly line; extending service life for the F-5E/F Tiger II type aircraft, originally built by Northrop and exported to Iran during the mid 1970's. pic.twitter.com/lMDVJ496MS— Mark Pyruz (@INTELonIRAN) November 3, 2018-The US has sold hundreds of billions of dollars of weapons to Iran’s regional rivals, and says the reimposition of the crippling sanctions is a bid to force Tehran to end its military deployments and support for militias in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon, and elsewhere in the region.Iran unveiled the Kowsar fighter in August, but analysts quickly noted similarities between the Iranian jet and the American F-5 fighter, made by Northrop-Grumman in the 1950s, and expressed doubts that the plane was actually new.At the time, state TV said the Kowsar had already been through successful testing and showed footage of the plane on the runway, though the broadcast stopped before the plane took off.The F-5 was sold to Iran in the 1960s and first entered operation in the Iranian Imperial Air Force in 1965. In the West, the F-5 line of jets is mostly used for training purposes.Iran has already used the F-5 platform — and, some observers suggest, actual parts from its aging fleet of non-flying F-5s — to develop its newer jets. The Saeqeh, first flown in 2004, was one such plane.In 2013, Iran unveiled its “first,” domestically-made fighter jet, the Qaher F313, but it was quickly derided by numerous experts in the West who said the plane was actually a plastic model, and was unable to fly.

European signatories to Iran nuclear deal condemn new US sanctions-France, UK, Germany and EU ‘deeply regret’ American measures, call accord ‘essential for the security of Europe, the region and the whole world’-By AFP-5 November 2018

PARIS — France, Germany, Britain and the European Union issued a joint condemnation Friday of the US move to place fresh sanctions on the Iranian economy, vowing to protect European companies doing “legitimate” business with Tehran.“We deeply regret the reimposition of sanctions by the United States stemming from their withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,” the statement said in reference to the hard-fought 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.Struck between world powers and Tehran after years of fraught negotiations, the deal was aimed at limiting Iran’s nuclear capabilities in exchange for sanctions relief.But US President Donald Trump announced in May that he was walking away from the deal and would reimpose sanctions, leaving the EU scrambling to protect companies that have forged trade links with Iran.Friday’s statement from EU nations defended the deal as “essential for the security of Europe, the region and the whole world.”“Our objective is to protect European economic actors involved in legitimate commercial trade with Iran,” it added.Europe will also seek to “maintain financial channels operational with Iran and to ensure the continuation of Iranian oil and gas exports,” it said.US officials said Friday that Washington was adding 700 individuals and entities to its Iran blacklist and pressuring the global SWIFT banking network to cut off Tehran when expanded sanctions are put in place next week.US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the sanctions were aimed at getting Tehran to halt its nuclear activities and what the US says is broad support for terrorism in the region.The EU says 12 consecutive reports from the International Atomic Energy Agency show that Iran has stuck to the terms of the deal.

US reimposes all sanctions on Iran lifted under nuclear deal-Pompeo says new measures aimed at forcing Tehran to give up ‘its well-documented outlaw activities,’ grants temporary waivers to 8 countries-By Matthew Lee-TOI-5 November 2018

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration on Friday announced the reimposition of all US sanctions on Iran that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal, ramping up economic pressure on the Islamic Republic as President Donald Trump completed the unraveling of what had been one of his predecessor’s signature foreign policy achievements.The sanctions, which will take effect on Monday, cover Iran’s shipping, financial and energy sectors and are the second batch the administration has reimposed since Trump withdrew from the landmark accord in May. The rollback ends US participation in the nuclear deal, which now hangs in the balance as Iran no longer enjoys any relief from sanctions imposed by the world’s largest economy.Shortly after the announcement, Trump tweeted a movie poster-like image of himself walking out of what appears to be fog with the phrase “Sanctions are Coming, November 5.”With limited exceptions, the sanctions will hit countries that do not stop importing Iranian oil and foreign firms that do business with blacklisted Iranian entities, including its central bank, a number of private financial institutions, and state-run port and shipping firms, as well as hundreds of individual Iranian officials.pic.twitter.com/nk2vKvHuaL— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 2, 2018-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the sanctions are “aimed at fundamentally altering the behavior of the Islamic Republic of Iran.” He has issued a list of 12 demands that Iran must meet if it wants the sanctions lifted. Those include ending support for terrorism and military engagement in Syria and a complete halt to its nuclear and ballistic missile development.“Our ultimate aim is to compel Iran to permanently abandon its well-documented outlaw activities and behave as a normal country,” Pompeo told reporters in a conference call with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. “Maximum pressure means maximum pressure.”Pompeo said eight nations will receive temporary waivers allowing them to continue to import Iranian petroleum products for a limited period as they move to end such imports entirely. He said those countries, which other officials said would include US allies such as Turkey, Italy, India, Japan and South Korea, had made efforts to eliminate their imports but could not complete the task by Monday.The waivers, expected to be announced Monday, will be valid for six months, during which time the importing country can buy Iranian oil but must deposit Iran’s revenue in an escrow account. Iran can spend the money but only on a narrow range of humanitarian items. Pompeo said two of the eight countries would wind down imports to zero within weeks.Mnuchin said 700 more Iranian companies and people would be added to the sanctions rolls. Those, he said, would include more than 300 that had not been included under previous sanctions.“We are sending a very clear message with our maximum pressure campaign: that the US intends to aggressively enforce our sanctions,” he said.Iran hawks in Congress and elsewhere were likely to be disappointed in the sanctions as they had been pushing for no oil import waivers as well as the complete disconnection of Iran from the main international financial messaging network known as SWIFT.One group that has been highly critical of the deal welcomed the new sanctions but said there should be no exceptions.“We encourage the Trump administration to fulfill the promise of a maximum pressure campaign — no exceptions — until Iran permanently and verifiably changes its behavior,” United Against a Nuclear Iran said in a statement. “Oil and gas firms, including those from friendly countries like India, South Korea and Japan, should not be granted sanctions waivers. Similarly, financial entities — including SWIFT — must sever ties with Iranian banks and financial institutions.”Mnuchin defended the decision to allow some Iranian banks to remain connected to SWIFT, saying that the Belgium-based firm had been warned that it will face penalties if sanctioned institutions are permitted to use it. And, he said that US regulators would be watching closely Iranian transactions that use SWIFT to ensure any that run afoul of US sanctions would be punished.Pompeo, meanwhile, defended the oil waivers, saying US efforts to cut Iran’s petroleum revenue had already been successful. He noted that since May, when the US began to press countries to stop buying Iranian oil, Iran’s exports had dropped by more than 1 million barrels per day.Pompeo and Mnuchin both said the sanctions will have exceptions for humanitarian purchases.The 2015 nuclear deal, one of former president Barack Obama’s signature foreign policy achievements, gave Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program, which many believed it was using to develop atomic weapons. Trump repeatedly denounced the agreement as the “worst ever” negotiated by the United States and vowed to withdraw from it during the 2016 presidential campaign.Trump and other critics of the deal said it gave Iran too much in return for too little, allowed Iran to gradually resume nuclear activity that could eventually be used for weapons development and did not address any of the country’s other problematic activities.Obama-era officials as well as the other parties to the deal — Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the European Union — have vehemently defended it. The Europeans have mounted a drive to save the agreement from the US withdrawal, fearing that the new sanctions will drive Iran to pull out and resume all of its nuclear work.

New defence for Infowars in copyright case? "Pepe the Toad"-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-November 5, 2018

The internet trolls who turned Pepe the Frog into a hate symbol may be disappointed to hear a new claim about the cartoon character's origins, courtesy of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' Infowars website .Infowars' attorneys claim in a court filing Thursday that Pepe the Frog creator Matt Furie based his character on a "pre-existing, strikingly similar" Argentine cartoon character named "El Sapo Pepe," or "Pepe the Toad."That's a new defence for Infowars against a copyright infringement lawsuit that Furie filed in March over the site's sales of a poster copying the character.Infowars' attorneys argue Furie could be precluded from asserting any copyright interest in his creation if Pepe the Frog is an "unauthorized derivative work" based on Pepe the Toad. Or it could "at least severely the scope of copyright protection in the character," they wrote."You've got to ask yourself if Mr. Furie's work is truly original," Infowars attorney Marc Randazza said during a telephone interview Friday. "I think it's at least worth taking a closer look."Louis Tompros, one of Furie's attorneys, said the California-based cartoonist had never heard of "El Sapo Pepe" before receiving a letter from Infowars's attorneys about it."So, it definitely did not inspire his creation of Pepe,' Tompros wrote in an email Friday.A federal judge set a July 2019 trial date for the lawsuit Furie filed against Infowars in Los Angeles.It was the second such case that Furie has brought as part of a legal campaign to reclaim his creation.Infowars' website is the online platform for right-wing radio host Jones. Furie's lawsuit says he didn't authorize the site to sell a poster that depicts the anthropomorphic frog alongside images of Jones, President Donald Trump, far-right agitator Milo Yiannopoulos and other right-wing figures.Jones has described the lawsuit as a "publicity stunt" and said he views it as an expression of political speech protected by the First Amendment."My listeners understand this is all frivolous," Jones told The Associated Press in March.Infowars was selling the Pepe-adorned "MAGA" poster for $29.95 and says it was created by "renowned artist and patriot" Jon Allen. Jones said Infowars has sold about 1,000 of the posters but added that it's hardly one of the site's most popular items.Furie's "chill frog-dude" debuted in a 2006 comic book called "Boy's Club" and became a popular canvas for benevolent internet memes. But the user-generated mutations grew increasingly hateful and ubiquitous more than a year before the 2016 presidential election, when Furie's creation become an online mascot for white nationalists, neo-Nazis and other right-wing extremists.The Anti-Defamation League branded Pepe as a hate symbol in September 2016 and promoted Furie's efforts to reclaim the character.Twitter banned Jones and Infowars from the social media platform earlier this year for abusive behaviour . Jones has been sued by targets of his conspiracy theories, including parents of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012. Jones questioned whether the shooting rampage was a hoax.Michael Kunzelman, The Associated Press.

Entering a modal-UN chief warns of famine in Yemen, urges halt to violence-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-November 5, 2018

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned Friday that Yemen could face "the worst famine we have seen in decades" and urged the country's warring parties to immediately halt the violence.The UN chief told reporters "the urgency of the humanitarian crisis leaves no room for complacency" and the "building wave of momentum" for peace must be seized.UN humanitarian chief Mark Lowcock warned last week that "there is a clear and present danger of an imminent and great big famine engulfing Yemen" that could affect 14 million people — half of the country's population.The conflict began in 2014 when Houthi Shia rebels toppled the internationally recognized government. A Saudi-led coalition allied with the government has been fighting the Houthis since 2015.Guterres said more and more countries are engaged in helping create conditions for the warring parties to understand the need to cease hostilities and engage in serious negotiations.He urged the coalition and the Houthis "to overcome obstacles and resolve differences through dialogue" at UN facilitated talks later this month.Guterres stressed that "violence must stop everywhere — with an immediate halt around critical infrastructure and densely populated areas.""My objective is to appeal to the parties to the conflict to understand that there is an opportunity that must be seized, and to say that the humanitarian situation is so dire that if that doesn't happen" the world will have to deal with a famine in Yemen next year, he said."I must say, I hope the voice of reason will prevail," Guterres said.

Khashoggi crisis may tip Middle East power balance towards Turkey-October 2 killing inside Saudi consulate in Istanbul, by a team sent from Riyadh, has already severely tarnished Arab state’s reputation-By Ezzedine SAID-TOI-NOV 5,18

ISTANBUL, Turkey (AFP) — The murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi could alter the power dynamic in the Middle East by strengthening Turkey’s influence at Saudi Arabia’s expense as they compete for leadership of the Islamic world, analysts say.This certainly appears to be the goal of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the main regional supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, which Saudi Arabia and its allies Egypt and the United Arab Emirates consider a terrorist group.The killing inside the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul by a team sent from Riyadh on October 2 has already severely tarnished Saudi Arabia’s global reputation.But it is the potential involvement of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, the oil-rich Gulf nation’s de facto leader known by his initials MBS, that could permanently damage Riyadh’s influence in the region.After initially insisting Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed, then saying he died in a brawl, the Saudi regime finally stated he was killed by a “rogue operation” and arrested 18 suspects, some with links to the crown prince.Analysts say Erdogan could use the ensuing crisis to weaken the 33-year-old prince, even potentially leading to the royal family removing him from power — though that seems unlikely.“The killing of Khashoggi has proven to be a golden opportunity for President Erdogan to pressure Saudi Arabia and work towards presenting Turkey as the new leader of the Muslim world,” said Lina Khatib, director of Middle East and North Africa Programme at Chatham House.“The Khashoggi crisis is a big geo-political gamble for Turkey and so far it looks like it is playing the game masterfully. But Turkey alone will not be able to push for the removal of MBS. The ball lies in the American court,” she added.For Erdogan, promoting the Muslim Brotherhood — which Saudi Arabia has sought to marginalize in the Arab world and which was ousted from power and brutally repressed in Egypt in 2013 by current President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi — is at the heart of this power struggle.The Turkish leader could also try to extract concessions from Riyadh for its ally Qatar, facing a Saudi blockade backed by the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Egypt since 2017.“I think that Erdogan sees this as an opportunity to push back against a triple entente in the Middle East that opposes his policies. That triple entente is composed of MBS, MBZ’s (Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan) UAE and Sissi’s Egypt,” said Soner Cagaptay, director of the Turkey Research Program at the Washington Institute.“These three countries, all Arabs, oppose Erdogan’s policies of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood. Now Erdogan sees a golden opportunity because MBS is vulnerable.”But Sinan Ulgen, president of the Centre for Economics and Foreign Policy, said “it remains to be seen whether Ankara can continue to leverage this conjuncture and turn it into a permanent advantage raising Turkey’s regional influence to the detriment of Saudi Arabia”.Nicholas Heras, an analyst at the Center for a New American Security, said the Khashoggi case was the “latest chapter in Turkey and Saudi Arabia’s ongoing contest over which country is better” to lead the Muslim world.“Erdogan clearly seems to believe that he can use the Khashoggi crisis as a way to cut Prince Mohammad bin Salman, and by extension, Saudi Arabia, down to size,” Heras added.By not directly pointing the blame at the crown prince over Khashoggi, Erdogan is seeking to keep him under pressure, according to Karim Bitar of the Paris-based French Institute for International and Strategic Affairs think-tank.“Erdogan knows that he still has ammunition that could weaken MBS in the international arena so basically he is rolling the dice these days trying to figure out how to maximise his profit after this huge Saudi blunder,” he told AFP.While the Muslim Brotherhood is important to Turkey, the West — especially the United States — is wary of the group and wants to focus any pressure on the crown prince towards ending the Yemen war and lifting the blockade on Qatar, the experts said.“I expect the blockade on Doha will likely come to an end in the near future and the Saudis find a way to support the UN’s efforts in Yemen,” said Steven Cook of the Council on Foreign Relations.Bitar noted that the US administration relies on Prince Mohammed’s support for any possible peace plan for the Israel-Palestinian conflict as well as containing Iran, long a Saudi foe.Washington could also push the crown prince towards “a rapprochement with Israel and to maintain a hawkish line towards Iran”, Bitar added.

Emerging Gaza ceasefire to significantly ease blockade — report-Lebanese daily says Egypt prepared to slash 70% of its own border restrictions under 3-year truce deal; Israel will be required to grant work permits and expand fishing zone-By TOI staff-NOV 5,18

An emerging cease-fire agreement aimed at calming months of violence on the Israel-Gaza border will last for three years and see a significant easing of the blockade on the Hamas-controlled territory, Lebanon’s Al-Akbar newspaper reported Saturday.According to the report, the deal being brokered by Egypt stipulates a gradual stop to the ongoing, Hamas-orchestrated violent border protests and maritime flotillas over the next two months. In addition, Hamas will be obligated to punish Gazans caught engaging in violent demonstrating along the border with Israel.In return, Egypt will permanently open its Rafah border crossing and lift 70 percent of its blockade on the Hamas-controlled territory, the report said, citing officials familiar with the emerging agreement.Al-Akbar said the deal would require Israel to grant 5,000 work permits for Gazans, and expand the Strip’s fishing zone from nine to 14 nautical miles.Israel had no immediate comment on the report.In addition, the paper reported the Palestinian Authority would pay 80% of the salaries of Hamas officials in Gaza, and would not object to Qatar bankrolling those wages for at least six months, like it has in the past.Within the framework of the agreement, the report said various economic projects in Gaza would be advanced to create jobs for some 30,000 jobs and alleviate the humanitarian situation in the Strip.The truce is slated to last three years and will be under the supervision of the United Nations and Russia. At later stage after the deal is implemented, Al-Akbar said Egypt would work to advance a prisoner exchange deal between Israel and Hamas.The report was released after Friday’s weekly protests along the Gaza border saw a significant decrease in violence.According to the Hamas-run health ministry in the strip, 12 Palestinians were injured from live Israeli fire, and dozens injured from tear gas inhalation. The Associated Press said the figures were the lowest reported since the start of the demonstrations seven months ago.Official Fatah account posts a picture of what it says is a member of the Hamas-run security forces forcibly preventing protesters from approaching the border fence between Gaza and Israel https://t.co/XAgD08xXWL— Adam Rasgon (@adamrasgon1) November 2, 2018-A senior Hamas member said the clashes were scaled down to give diplomatic efforts a chance amid talk of a breakthrough in months of Egyptian-led negotiations.The official Twitter account of PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction even posted a picture of what it claimed to be a member of the Hamas-run security forces forcibly preventing protesters from approaching the Gaza border fence during Friday’s protests.Khalil al-Hayya said the terror group was “testing” Egyptian-led efforts to broker a ceasefire to ease an 11-year-old blockade on Gaza, but warned the clashes would resume if the blockade was not lifted.The IDF put turnout Friday at some 7,000 demonstrators with about half of those present approached the border fence, while the rest remained at a distance and did not clash with soldiers. The protest ended earlier than usual.For months, Egypt and UN officials have been engaged in indirect talks between Hamas, the Islamist terror group that runs the Gaza Strip, and Israel.Israel has accused Hamas, which is sworn to the destruction of the Jewish state, of leading the protests and using them as cover to carry out attacks against troops stationed the border.Last week, seven Palestinians were reported killed in the weekly border protests. The bloodshed was followed by rockets launched at Israel by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group, which were met with and retaliatory Israeli airstrikes, dashing hopes of what was expected to be a calmer week in Gaza.Since the often violent protests began on March 30, over 150 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire during demonstrations and clashes along the border, including a number of people who broke through the fence into Israel. Dozens of the fatalities were Hamas members. During that time, one Israeli soldier has been killed by a Palestinian sniper.

A Palestinian-American writer has been detained on arrival at Israel’s main airport and will be deported, Palestinian and Israeli officials said Friday.Susan Abulhawa was refused entry at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport on Thursday evening, said a spokesman for the Palestinian Literature Festival, which Abulhawa had been set to attend.She appealed the decision in an Israeli court Friday morning but her appeal was rejected, meaning she was likely to be deported in the coming hours, the spokesman added.Abulhawa, author of the novel “Mornings in Jenin,” had been due to appear at panel events in both Jerusalem and the West Bank city of Ramallah during the festival, which is co-sponsored by the British Council.Immigration authority spokeswoman Sabine Haddad told AFP the writer was refused entry because of an incident in 2015 when she refused to answer questions by security personnel when attempting to enter though a land crossing from neighboring Jordan.“She was refused entry then and told that the next time she arrived she had to coordinate in advance,” Haddad said in Hebrew.This time “she landed without arranging entry in advance.”Haddad added that Abulhawa’s detention was not related to support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.In March 2017, Israel’s parliament passed a law barring entry to supporters of BDS, which seeks to isolate the Jewish state internationally.Last month an American student spent two weeks in Israeli detention appealing an entry ban over her past involvement in a campus group that supports boycotting Israel.Lara Alqasem was eventually allowed to enter Israel after its Supreme Court overturned a lower court ruling upholding the state’s decision to deny her entry.Alqasem’s detention came after a number of other high-profile cases in which travelers to Israel were questioned over their political views and alleged support for BDS, drawing scrutiny to the law barring boycott supporters.Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.

Egyptian delegation tours Gaza clashes as promised calm largely holds-Hamas member says violence reined in to give Egyptian truce efforts a chance, but warns of escalation if blockade not lifted-By TOI staff and Agencies-5 November 2018

An Egyptian security delegation toured the Gaza border protests Friday, and even though thousands of Palestinians turned up, they were the quietest in several months, witnesses said.The visit came amid efforts by Egypt to broker a ceasefire between Israel and the Gaza Strip’s Hamas rulers.The delegation briefly attended the demonstrations in northern Gaza, a statement from the head of the organizing committee said. Eyewitnesses said a car carrying the delegation briefly drove to a protest site a few hundred meters from the border, before departing.A senior Hamas member said the clashes were scaled down to give diplomatic efforts a chance amid talk of a breakthrough in months of Egyptian-led negotiations.Khalil al-Hayya said the terror group is “testing” Egyptian-led efforts to broker a ceasefire to ease an 11-year-old blockade on Gaza.Fiercer clashes will resume if the blockade remains in place, al-Hayya warned.Israel and Egypt largely sealed their borders with Gaza after Hamas seized control in 2007 from the Palestinian Authority, citing a need to prevent weapons smuggling.Thousands again gathered at multiple sites near the frontier Friday but largely stayed away from the border fence, AFP correspondents said.Security forces loyal to Hamas prevented protesters from approaching the border too closely, the correspondents said.The Haaretz daily put turnout at some 7,000 demonstrators and quoted the Israel Defense Forces as saying about half of those present approached the border fence, while the rest remained at a distance and did not clash with soldiers.The protest ended earlier than usual.The Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza said 32 Palestinians were injured during the protests, including seven by Israeli fire, which The Associated Press said was the lowest casualty figures reported since the start of the demonstrations.Armed factions in Gaza on Thursday had agreed to rein in violence along the security fence in light of the latest Egyptian-efforts to reach a ceasefire with Israel.A senior Hamas member told the Ynet news site groups in Gaza agreed to stop protesters from burning tires, throwing firebombs and approaching the border during rallies until Sunday.He said the protesters would also refrain from launching incendiary devices toward Israel over the weekend.Egypt and UN officials have been engaged in indirect talks between Hamas, the Islamist terror group that runs the Gaza Strip, and Israel.Israel has accused Hamas, which is sworn to the destruction of the Jewish state, of leading the protests and using them as cover to carry out attacks against troops stationed the border-Since often violent protests began on March 30, over 150 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire during protests and clashes along the border, including a number of people who broke through the fence into Israel. Dozens of the fatalities were Hamas members.One Israeli soldier has been killed by a Palestinian sniper.In a statement after a meeting of their leaders in Gaza on Thursday, Hamas and Islamic Jihad said the marches would continue, albeit without violence.Both groups praised Egyptian and UN efforts to broker a deal.A separate statement by Islamic Jihad carried by Israeli media threatened that it would use a “new tactic” along the border, without providing details.A leader of the Iran-backed terror group told Haaretz the Egyptians had agreed to work to curb any Israeli response to the protests over the next three weeks. The unnamed official said the protests could be called off after that period if Israel keeps to its commitment to ease a blockade on the Strip.There was no comment from Egyptian officials.Last week’s clashes, in which seven Palestinians were reported killed, was followed by Islamic Jihad rocket launches at Israel and retaliatory Israeli Air Force raids, dashing hopes of what was expected to be a calmer weekend along the border.

Abbas, Sissi hold rare meet on backdrop of ceasefire, reconciliation efforts-Last publicly known time Palestinian, Egyptian leaders met was 10 months ago; Abbas praises Cairo’s ‘efforts’-By Adam Rasgon-TOI-NOV 4,18

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi met on Saturday in the Egyptian resort city of Sharm al-Sheikh, the official PA news agency Wafa reported.The last publicly known time the two leaders held a bilateral meeting was some ten months ago.“The two presidents discussed developments in the Middle East, especially those related to Palestine in light of the dangers the Palestinian issue is facing,” the Wafa report said.Abbas arrived in Egypt on Friday to meet Sissi and attend a conference in Sharm el-Sheikh.The PA president also praised Sissi “for the efforts the Arab Republic of Egypt has exerted” under his leadership, without elaborating.Azzam al-Ahmad, a Palestine Liberation Organization official who attended the meeting between the two leaders, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Egypt has recently made efforts to revive the reconciliation process between Hamas and Fatah, meeting with leaders from the two rival parties for separate talks in the past several weeks.In October 2017, Hamas and Fatah signed an Egyptian-brokered deal to advance reconciliation and bring the West Bank and Gaza under one government, but they failed to implement it.Hamas has controlled Gaza since ousting the Fatah-dominated Palestinian Authority from the territory in 2007.Egypt, alongside United Nations special coordinator for the Middle East peace process Nikolay Mladenov, has also recently played a key role in attempts to mediate a ceasefire between Hamas and Israel.Arabic media reports have said that if achieved, a ceasefire would include at least a partial lifting of Israel’s restrictions on the movement of goods and people into and out of Gaza.Israel holds that its restrictions on movement serve security purposes including preventing the entry of weapons into the Strip.Ramallah-based Palestinian officials have said Fatah-Hamas reconciliation should precede any possible ceasefire. They have also contended that the Palestine Liberation Organization is the sole party with the legitimacy to negotiate a ceasefire with Israel.Egyptian intelligence officials joined Palestinians protesting in the border region between Israel and Gaza on Friday, Deputy Hamas Chief in Gaza Khalil al-Hayya told the London-based Al-Ghad TV.Friday’s rally was largely peaceful. Hayya said the protests were scaled down to give the ceasefire efforts a chance, according to the Associated Press.The protests, which have included many violent acts, have taken place weekly since March 30. Their organizers have said the protests aim to achieve the return of Palestinian refugees and their descendants to lands which are now part of Israel, and pressure the Jewish state to lift its restrictions on the movement of people and goods into and out of the coastal enclave.Hayya suggested efforts to achieve a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas had been making progress.“Their success is becoming visible in the horizon,” he told Al-Ghad TV, referring to the efforts to conclude a ceasefire.On Saturday, the Egyptian Intelligence officials left Gaza through the Erez crossing, according to the Hamas-linked Palestinian Information Center.

U.S. allows eight importers to keep buying Iran oil for now-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-By Arshad Mohammed, Lesley Wroughton and Patricia Zengerle-November 4, 2018

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States said on Friday it will temporarily allow eight importers to keep buying Iranian oil when it re-imposes sanctions on Monday to try to force Iran to curb its nuclear, missile and regional activities.U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who announced the decision, did not name the eight, which he referred to as "jurisdictions," a term that might include importers such as Taiwan which the United States does not regard as a country.Having abandoned the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, U.S. President Donald Trump is trying to cripple Iran’s oil-dependent economy and force Tehran to quash not only its nuclear ambitions and its ballistic missile program but its support for militant proxies in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and other parts of the Middle East.On Twitter, in a message designed to emphasize his "maximum pressure" policy toward Iran, Trump included a photograph of himself modeled on a entertainment industry poster with the headline: "Sanctions are coming November 5."China, India, South Korea, Turkey, Italy, the United Arab Emirates and Japan have been top importers of Iran’s oil, while Taiwan occasionally buys cargoes of Iranian crude but is not a major buyer.Turkey has been told it will temporarily be allowed to keep buying Iranian oil, its energy minister told reporters, as has Iraq, as long as it does not pay Iran in U.S. dollars, three Iraqi officials said.India and South Korea were also on the list, said a source familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity. Under U.S. law, exceptions can be granted for up to 180 days.Oil prices fell on Friday for a weekly loss of over 6 percent, as investors worried about crude oversupply after the U.S. waivers.Brent crude futures fell 6 cents to settle at $72.83 a barrel, while U.S. crude declined 55 cents to end the session at $63.14 per barrel, a 0.86 percent loss.U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin also said Washington had told the Brussels-based SWIFT financial messaging service it was expected to disconnect all Iranian financial institutions that the United States plans to blacklist as of Monday. He declined to name the targeted institutions.Trump set in motion the resumption of sanctions on May 8, when he announced U.S. withdrawal from the 2015 deal between Iran and world powers under which Tehran had agreed to curtail its nuclear program in return for relief from sanctions."This part of the campaign is aimed at depriving the regime of the revenues it uses to spread death and destruction around the world, Pompeo said.ZERO CRUDE-Pompeo said Washington will issue temporary waivers to the eight Iran oil importers "only because they have demonstrated significant reductions in their crude oil and cooperation on many other fronts."Two would stop imports and the other six would greatly reduce them, Pompeo said.He later said the ultimate goal was to stop all Iranian crude exports."We will ultimately move Iran to zero crude oil. That’ll take us some number of months to do that," Pompeo told Fox News according to the transcript of the interview released by the State Department. "We’ve been able to do that in a way that hasn’t had a huge impact on crude oil prices. That’s a good thing for American consumers."Iran said it was not troubled over the re-imposition of U.S. sanctions, which target not only its vital oil and gas sector but also shipping, ship-building and banking industries."America will not be able to carry out any measure against our great and brave nation ... We have the knowledge and the capability to manage the country's economic affairs," Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi told state TV.However, ordinary Iranians fear an even more painful squeeze, from businesses struggling to buy raw materials to the sick and elderly unable to afford life-saving medicines."I cannot even buy rice to feed my children or pay my rent," said elementary school teacher Pejman Sarafnejad, 43, a father of three in Tehran.The European Union, France, Germany and Britain, parties to the nuclear agreement who are trying to keep it alive, said they regretted Washington's decision to re-impose sanctions. The EU is creating a special mechanism that would circumvent U.S. financial sanctions on Iran.The United States is able to pressure other nations to stop buying Iranian oil under a 2012 law that allows the president to cut off foreign banks, including central banks, from the U.S. financial system unless they significantly reduce purchases.The United States believes global oil supplies will exceed demand next year, making it easier for countries to cut Iranian oil imports to zero, Brian Hook, the U.S. special representative for Iran, told reporters.(Reporting by Arshad Mohammed, Patricia Zengerle, Lesley Wroughton; Additional reporting by Timothy Gardner and Humeyra Pamak in Washington, Devika Krishna Kumar in New York; Henning Gloystein in Singapore, Aizhu Chen in Beijing, Dmitry Zhdannikov in London; Hyonhee Shin in Seoul, Osamu Tsukimori in Tokyo, Gulsen Solaker in Ankara and Parisa Hafezi in Dubai; Editing by Susan Thomas, Grant McCool and Tomasz Janowski)

Fearing 'angry mob', lawyer of freed Christian woman leaves Pakistan-[Reuters]-By Saad Sayeed and Asif Shahzad-YAHOONEWS-November 4, 2018

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - The Pakistani lawyer who helped a Christian woman overturn her death sentence for blasphemy said on Saturday he had left the country in fear of his life after her acquittal earlier this week sparked street protests by Islamists.Leaders of the ultra-Islamist Tehreek-e-Labaik (TLP) group blocked main roads in Pakistan's biggest cites for three days, calling for the murder of the Supreme Court judges who acquitted Asia Bibi on Wednesday -- urging their cooks and servants to kill them.Saiful Mulook had kept a low profile during the years he represented Bibi, a mother-of-five who has been on death row since 2010, due to the highly sensitive nature of the case. Two politicians who had tried to help her have been assassinated.Mulook told Reuters in a WhatsApp message he had gone abroad "just to save (my) life from angry mob" and because of fears for the safety of his family."I consulted and everybody is of this opinion (that I should leave)," he said, adding that he would return to the country to continue his work on the case if he was given protection by security forces.The TLP called off the protests late on Friday after striking a deal with the government that would see authorities seek to put Bibi on an 'exit control list' barring her from leaving the country.Bibi's whereabouts are unknown, but Islamists have warned the authorities against taking her out of the country."There will be a war if they send Asia out of country," TLP leader Khadim Hussain Rizvi said after the deal was reached.Earlier in the week one of Rizvi's deputies called for Pakistan's Chief Justice Saqib Nisar and two other judges who ruled in the case to be murdered."Whoever, who has got any access to them, kill them before the evening," TLP co-founder Muhammad Afzal Qadri told supporters.The TLP was founded out of a movement supporting a bodyguard who assassinated Punjab provincial governor Salman Taseer after he spoke in Bibi's defence in 2011. Federal minister for minorities Shahbaz Bhatti was also killed after calling for her release.Bibi was convicted of blasphemy in 2010 for allegedly making derogatory remarks about Islam after neighbours objected to her drinking water from their glass because she was not Muslim. She always denied having committed blasphemy.The case has outraged Christians worldwide and been a source of division within Pakistan, where Islamist parties such as the TLP have framed Bibi's release as Pakistan's government caving into Western demands.Bibi's acquittal is being reviewed, though it is extremely rare for a review to overturn a Supreme Court ruling.(Writing by Drazen Jorgic; Editing by Helen Popper)

UAE minister says Iran’s aggression to blame for renewed US sanctions-Anwar Gargash cites Tehran’s ‘aggressive policies’ as largely responsible for reintroduction of punitive measures that were lifted under 2015 nuclear deal-By TOI staff-TOI-NOV 4,18

The United Arab Emirates’ Foreign Minister Anwar Gargash said Saturday that Iran’s “aggressive policies” were “largely responsible” for the US decision to reimpose sanctions against the Islamic Republic, according to Reuters.The UAE along with Saudi Arabia have adopted a more confrontational approach to Shiite rival Iran in recent years, accusing it of supporting terror groups and fueling turmoil in regional countries.The two Sunni states head a military coalition in Yemen aimed at toppling the Iran-backed Houthi rebel group and returning the internationally recognized government to power.On Friday, the US announced that it will reintroduce sanctions against Tehran that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal. They are the second batch the administration has reimposed since it withdrew from the international accord in May.The rollback, which will go into effect on Monday, ends US participation in the nuclear deal, which now hangs in the balance as Iran no longer enjoys any relief from sanctions imposed by the world’s largest economy.Shortly after the announcement, US President Donald Trump tweeted a poster-like image of himself in a play on TV show Game of Thrones, with the phrase “Sanctions are Coming, November 5.”pic.twitter.com/nk2vKvHuaL— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 2, 2018-With limited exceptions, the sanctions will hit countries that do not stop importing Iranian oil and foreign firms that do business with blacklisted Iranian entities, including its central bank, a number of private financial institutions, and state-run port and shipping firms, as well as hundreds of individual Iranian officials.The waivers will be valid for six months, during which time the importing country can buy Iranian oil but must deposit Iran’s revenue in an escrow account. Iran can spend the money but only on a narrow range of humanitarian items. Pompeo said two of the eight countries would wind down imports to zero within weeks.

Florida imam: Palestine must be liberated, even at cost of millions of martyrs-Hasan Sabri says ‘Palestine in its entirety is Islamic land, and there is no difference between what was occupied in 1948 and 1967’-By TOI staff-NOV 4,18

During a recent sermon at the Islamic Center of South Florida, an imam called for the “liberation” of Palestine, even at the cost of tens of millions of Muslim lives.“If a land is occupied or plundered, it should be liberated from the occupiers and plunderers, even if this leads to the martyrdom of tens of millions of Muslims,” said Hasan Sabri in a sermon last month translated Friday by the Middle East Media Research Institute.“This is the ruling, and there is no room for discussion or concessions.”Sabri referred to “Palestine in its entirety” as “Islamic land” and asserted that there is no difference between the land captured by Israel in the 1948 Independence War and the 1967 Six Day War. “All of it is Islamic waqf land that was occupied by force. The responsibility for it lies with the entire Islamic nation, and the [Palestinians] should benefit from this land.”Florida Friday Sermon – Imam Hasan Sabri: Palestine In Its Entirety Should Be Liberated, Even If This Leads to the Martyrdom of Tens of Millions of Muslims pic.twitter.com/tbuJNiOSry— MEMRI (@MEMRIReports) November 2, 2018-The Imam also criticized the yet-to-be-released peace plan of US President Donald Trump. “They call it ‘the Deal of the Century.’ Why do they call it a deal?’ Because whoever is involved in this treason is not a man of principles,” Sabri said.“These are peddlers, not men with a cause. All they want are positions and jobs. That is why for them, the cause is nothing but a deal, a matter of give and take. For them, it is nothing but a deal.”

Christians in Egypt bury their dead after jihadist attack-Local Islamic State affiliate claims its gunmen killed 7 Coptic pilgrims in ambush attack near Cairo-By Samy Magdy and Hamza Hendawi-TOI-NOV 4,18

MINYA, Egypt (AP) — Hundreds of Egyptian Coptic Christians gathered Saturday for a funeral service south of Cairo to bid farewell to six of seven people killed the previous day when militants ambushed three buses carrying pilgrims on their way to a remote desert monastery.The service at Prince Tadros church in the city of Minya was held amid tight security and presided over by Minya’s top cleric, Anba Makarios. He and members of the congregation prayed and chanted over a row of six white coffins.Relatives of the victims cried and held each other for support.All but one of those killed were members of the same family, according to a list of the victims’ names released by the church, which said a boy and a girl, ages 15 and 12 respectively, were among the dead. A total of 19 were wounded in the attack, according to the Coptic Orthodox Church.The local Islamic State group affiliate, which spearheads militants fighting security forces in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, claimed responsibility for the attack south of Cairo. It said the attack was revenge for the imprisonment by Egyptian authorities of “our chaste sisters” but did not elaborate.The IS affiliate claimed that 13 Christians were killed and another 18 wounded, but it was not immediately possible to independently verify the claim or reconcile the discrepancy in the number of dead and wounded given by the group and the church.The attack was likely to cast a dark shadow on one of President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi’s showpieces — the World Youth Forum — which opens Saturday in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh. The forum is drawing thousands of local and foreign youth to discuss a wide range of topics, with Egypt’s 63-year-old leader taking center stage.The Islamic State has repeatedly vowed to go after Egypt’s Christians as punishment for their support of el-Sissi. As defense minister, el-Sissi led the military’s 2013 ouster of an Islamist president, whose one-year rule proved divisive. The group has claimed responsibility for a string of deadly attacks on Christians dating back to December 2016.El-Sissi, who has made security among his top priorities since taking office in 2014, wrote on his Twitter account that Friday’s attack was designed to harm the “nation’s solid fabric” and pledged to continue fighting terrorism. He later offered his condolences when he spoke by telephone with Pope Tawadros II, spiritual leader of Egypt’s Orthodox Christians and a close el-Sissi ally.In a somber message of his own, Tawadros said in a video clip released by the church that the latest attack would only make the Christians stronger.“I think that this is a terrorist act which is targeting Egypt through playing the card of the Copts,” said Begemy Nassem Nasr, priest of the church of St. Mary in Minya. “We know that … President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi is hosting the youth forum and they meant to embarrass him.”Embarrassingly, Friday’s attack is the second to target pilgrims heading to the St. Samuel the Confessor monastery in as many years, indicating that security measures put in place since then are either inadequate or have become lax. The previous attack in May 2017 left nearly 30 people dead.It was the latest in a string of IS assaults against Christians. Previous ones targeted churches packed with worshippers in Cairo, the Mediterranean city of Alexandria and Tanta in the Nile Delta north of the capital, leaving at least 100 people dead.The attacks led to tighter security around Christian places of worship and Church-linked facilities, where metal detectors and armed police are routinely deployed. They have also underlined the vulnerability of minority Christians in a country where many Muslims have since the 1970s grown religiously conservative and less tolerant of non-Muslims.The Interior Ministry, which oversees the police, said Friday’s attackers used secondary dirt roads to reach the buses carrying the pilgrims, who were near the monastery at the time of the attack. Only pilgrims have been allowed on the main road leading to the monastery since last year’s attack.Some Christians in Minya said police negligence was partly to blame for the latest attack, arguing that they stopped providing armed escorts for pilgrims’ buses headed to the old monastery.“They should have escorted them. They know it is dangerous to leave them alone on that road,” said Youssef Attya, a 38-year-old health worker from Minya.The Interior Ministry said police were pursuing the attackers, who fled the scene.Egypt’s Christians, who account for some 10 percent of the country’s 100 million people, complain of discrimination in the Muslim majority country. Christian activists say the church’s alliance with el-Sissi has offered the ancient community a measure of protection but failed to end frequent acts of discrimination that boil over into violence against Christians, especially in rural Egypt.In Minya, the scene of Friday’s attack, Christians constitute the highest percentage of the population — about 35 percent — of any Egyptian province. It’s also in Minya where most acts of violence, like attacks on churches and Christian homes and businesses, take place.Christians there accuse the local police of being soft on Muslims who attack them and complain that, in their pursuit of keeping the peace between the two communities, they insist on resolving sectarian disputes through tribal-like reconciliation meetings rather than rule of law.

Clocks 'fall back' on Sunday, offering 1 more hour of sleep-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-November 3, 2018

Twice a year, most Canadians change the time of their clocks by an hour.We "fall back," as we'll do this Sunday, Nov. 4, at 2 a.m. And a few months later, on March 10, 2019, we'll "spring forward."We know that the time shift helps us make the most of light in the morning and evening, and that it can temporarily upset our sleep schedules.But why do we do it? The idea was first proposed by Benjamin Franklin in the 1770s, but wasn't implemented until around 1915. Germany was the first country to use it, then Britain. It was adopted more widely during the First World War, which is when Canada started using daylight time.Reducing energy consumption and making the best use of daylight hours were the main reasons daylight time was used.There have been changes to the dates when clocks would change over the years, most recently in 2007, when legislation in the United States moved the start of daylight time three weeks earlier in the spring and the return to standard time a week later in the fall.The change was aimed at trying to help save energy. Canada followed the move in the U.S. so the time zones would remain aligned. That means clocks now:Fall back the first Sunday in November.Spring forward the second Sunday in March.Only in some parts of Canada-Most of Saskatchewan has not observed daylight time since 1966, staying on central standard time all year round. Some border towns follow the time schemes of their neighbours in Manitoba or Alberta.Areas of Quebec east of 63 degrees west longitude do not change to daylight time and remain on Atlantic time year round. Pockets of Ontario and British Columbia do not use daylight time.Daylight time is observed in most of the United States. Just two states — Arizona and Hawaii — and three territories — American Samoa, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands — do not participate.There have been debates about whether daylight time remains useful. A March 2013 telephone survey of 1,000 adults by Rasmussen Reports in the U.S., for example, suggested 45 per cent of people thought it had no value, and 19 per cent were unsure.A similar survey of Europeans in the summer of 2018 found 84 per cent want to stop changing their clocks twice a year. That prompted the European Commission to announce in August that it would recommend that European Union member states abolish daylight savings.The time change can also affect sleep cycles. "Falling back," is generally thought to be less physically stressful, because people can get an extra hour of sleep, but studies show that's not always the case.Time changes are not always beneficial to traffic and pedestrians. A study by U.S. researchers found there were more pedestrian deaths during the evening rush hour in November than October as drivers and pedestrians adjusted to the earlier darkness.Upcoming time changes (ET)-2019: Spring forward Sunday, March 10 at 2 a.m. Fall back Sunday, Nov. 3 at 2 a.m.2020: Spring forward Sunday, March 8 at 2 a.m. Fall back Sunday Nov. 1 at 2 a.m.2021: Spring forward Sunday, March 14 at 2 a.m. Fall back Sunday, Nov. 7 at 2 a.m.

Federal ministers defend cannabis rollout after Enquête uncovers ties to organized crime-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-November 4, 2018

Federal ministers defended the rollout of legal cannabis Friday after a Radio-Canada investigation revealed that the financial backers of some producers have links to organized crime.The French-language investigative program Enquête found that two individuals connected to illegal drug trafficking, including one with links to the Rizzuto crime family, were able to invest in a major legal cannabis producer.Another individual with ties to the illegal market was able to sell his cannabis business to one of Canada's biggest legal players in exchange for shares in the company."It's not something that happens overnight, but there are laws in place to ensure that we do everything we can to capture individuals that are involved in organized crime," said Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould.RCMP Supt. Yves Goupil told Enquête that while the police force conducts background checks on those applying to be licensed producers, uncovering everyone who is investing in the venture is a much more costly process.He said the RCMP cannot afford to employ deep surveillance techniques on every producer.Opposition parties said it's a troubling sign that, two weeks into the era of legal cannabis, the black market appears to have infiltrated Canada's legal supply chain."On its face, problems begin to emerge," said Conservative Member of Parliament Gérard Deltell.NDP MP Alexandre Boulerice said it's essential that the government uncover who is financing Canada's legal cannabis producers."They take the patch off their back and put on their jacket and tie and become a legitimate businessmen and continue to profit off drugs," he said.Making the verification process more difficult is the use of trusts, the Enquête report found, which hide the names of beneficiaries from the public."We have robust physical and personnel security screening processes in place for the existing industry designed to guard against infiltration by organized crime," said Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction Minister Bill Blair.He pointed to the fact that all officers and board members of a licensed producer are subject to background checks.Blair said the government has also proposed expanding those checks to board members of any company that controls the corporation doing the actual cannabis production.Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor defended the government's cannabis law, calling the current verification system "exhaustive."She reiterated that Health Canada had found no connections to organized crime in the companies approved to produce cannabis."It's a new regime. We will ensure that the right resources are in place," she said.At a news conference in Churchill, Man., Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau acknowledged there is still work to do be done the cannabis file, but that he is happy with the rollout so far.With files from Radio-Canada.

French far-right overtakes Macron in EU parliament election poll

Marine Le Pen’s National Rally has overtaken the centrist party of Emmanuel Macron, the French president, for the first time, according to an opinion poll released Sunday, in a further sign of the rise of the far-Right in Europe.

The Ifop poll measured voting intentions for European Parliament elections next May, seen as a decisive battle between pro-EU liberals and Eurosceptic populists that could be pivotal in shaping the future of the European Union after Brexit.

Liberals championed by Mr Macron are attempting to fend off a rising anti-immigrant and Eurosceptic wave led by Hungary’s prime minister, Viktor Orban, and Matteo Salvini, Italy’s influential deputy prime minister.

The poll showed Ms Le Pen’s party, formerly known as the Front National, with 21 per cent of voting intentions compared to 19 per cent for Mr Macron’s La Republique En Marche (LREM) party.

Together with the seven per cent of people planning to vote for a smaller far-Right party, Stand Up France, and two per cent going for two small “Frexit” parties, the French far-Right has won 30 per cent of voting intentions, a five-point gain since August, according to the poll.

In a landmark victory, the Front National won the largest share of the French vote in the last European elections in 2014, when the Socialist Party held power in France.

Mr Macron is leading the campaign for the 2019 European elections, which he has described as “a contest between progressives and nationalists”.

On a recent visit to Slovakia and the Czech Republic, Mr Macron railed against populists, accusing Hungarian and Polish leaders of being “fantasists [who] lie to their people.”

He said it angered him to see posters with slogans such as “Stop Brussels”, arguing that EU membership had brought countries such as Hungary and Poland greater prosperity.

Last week he urged Europeans to “resist” what he called “the nationalist leprosy”.

He said: “The moment we are living through resembles the period between the two world wars…

"In a Europe divided by fear, the nationalist withdrawal, the consequences of the economic crisis, one sees almost methodically the recurrence of everything that set the pace of European life from the end of the First World War to the Great Depression of 1929.”

Nevertheless, the French president’s approval ratings have plunged to 21 per cent amid rising discontent over his failure to fulfil his election pledges to slash unemployment, boost growth and cut taxes.

Fuel price increases stemming from tax increases justified as an anti-pollution measure have alienated rural and small-town voters, and the president has also been damaged by a scandal over his bodyguard who was filmed beating protesters.

Ms Le Pen’s party appears to be the only opposition group benefiting from Mr Macron’s unpopularity.

The far-Left France Unbowed party, whose leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon took nearly 20 per cent of the vote in the first round of France’s presidential election last year, fell three points to 11 per cent in the European election poll.

Leftist goons disrupt even a Munk debate

Munk debates are very formal, serious and orderly debates in Canada that get big publicity.  But Leftists hungered after that publicity

Violent clashes during Steve Bannon debate in Toronto end with two cops left injured and demonstrators left bloodied and bruised

Police made 12 arrests as protesters delayed the start of a controversial debate featuring Bannon and conservative commentator David Frum.

Toronto Police tweeted 12 people face various charges and two officers suffered minor injuries, one was hit with a stick and another was punched in the face. The debate was delayed for about a half hour and Bannon was interrupted by a protester during his opening statement.

Many in the crowd of 2,700 at the Munk debate groaned and laughed at Bannon when he said he hasn't seen a bad decision by President Donald Trump yet.

When Bannon earlier called it a very tough crowd, one audience member responded 'No, smart.'

'Trump's economic nationalism doesn't care about your race, your ethnicity or color,' Bannon said to a jeering crowd at another point.

The protester that interrupted the debate unfurled a banner that read 'No Hate. No Bigoty. No Place for Bannon's White Supremacy.'

Guests of a Toronto Munk debate featuring former White House chief strategist Bannon and conservative commentator Frum

Bannon thanked the people of Toronto and the organizers for having him and the protesters outside for exercising their freedom of speech rights to protest.

Frum and Bannon debated whether 'The future of Western politics is populist, not liberal.' Frum argued populism offers nothing but anger and fear and said he had faith in voters.

'I know the fear that many feel,' Frum said. 'This is not the first time that democracy has faced thugs, and crooks and bullies and would be dictators and those who would seek to build themselves up by tearing others down. This is not the first time that people have puffed themselves as the wave of the future. They were wrong then and they are wrong now.'

Frum called the rise in populism the most dangerous challenge that liberal democratic institutions have faced since the end of communism.

'It's not a question of whether populism is on the rise and whether populism is going to be the political future,' Bannon said. 'The only question before us: Is it going to be populist nationalism or populist socialism?'

Bannon played a central role in the 2016 campaign of Trump. Bannon said next week's midterms are critical test of the populist movement but said they are just in the first inning of it.

Bathroom vote in Massaschusetts

Jeff Jacoby

QUESTION 3 on the Nov. 6 ballot in Massachusetts asks voters whether they want to retain or repeal a 2016 state law that makes it illegal to discriminate against transgender people in places of public accommodation. That law specifies that any place with separate facilities for males and females, such as bathrooms and locker rooms, must allow access to individuals on the basis of their "gender identity," regardless of their biological sex.

The measure doesn't appear to be very contentious. If a Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll released on Monday is correct, 68 percent of Massachusetts voters intend to vote Yes on Question 3, to keep the law on the books.

I'm with the 28 percent who plan to vote No. In my view, there are at least three reasons why the transgender-identity law was a mistake and should be rejected.

1. When antidiscrimination laws are expanded, freedom of association — a core human liberty — is infringed.

I oppose laws that force private businesses or organizations to serve customers or accept patrons against their will. Private vendors, employers, and places of public accommodation should have broad legal freedom to decide for themselves whom they wish to deal with. The only exception I support is banning discrimination based on race, since American law for so many generations mandated racial repression and discrimination. Otherwise, there should be no "protected" categories at all. Where liberty and free choice flourish, bigotry and xenophobia tend to recede. Society should rely on the power of markets and public sentiment to eliminate invidious discrimination, not the iron fist of regulators and prosecutors.

Granted, this is theoretical. The wholesale repeal of anti-bias statutes is not in the cards. But at least the pressure to expand those laws by adding more and more demographic groups to the already lengthy list of protected classes should be resisted.

Transgender individuals should always be treated with respect — that should go without saying. But Massachusetts should also respect its citizens' freedom of association, and trust them to use their own judgment when gender identity is at issue.

2. Massachusetts has already shown that it can routinely accommodate transgender access — no law required.

Addressing Question 3 in a statement last Monday, the University of Massachusetts assured the "100,000 students, faculty, staff, and guests" who are on UMass campuses each day that regardless of the referendum result, bathrooms and changing facilities will continue to be open to anyone who wants to use them.

"We will retain our present policy on restroom and locker room access on our campuses by allowing transgender and gender-nonconforming students, faculty, staff, and guests to choose facilities consistent with their gender identity," the statement said.

What is true of UMass is true of every establishment in Massachusetts: They can sort this out for themselves. Supporters of the Yes on 3 campaign include many of the largest corporations, sports teams, labor unions, police organizations, and colleges in the state. None of them needs Beacon Hill to tell them how to operate their bathrooms or other intimate spaces.

Everyone in Massachusetts goes to the bathroom, and 99.9 percent of the time, people use the facilities suited to their needs without causing problems for anyone else. They were doing so before the 2016 law was passed. They'll do so if the law is overturned.

That leaves the 0.1 percent of instances when the presence of an anatomical male in a space meant for females does cause genuine distress, and leads to my third argument for voting No on Question 3:

3. The transgender-identity law ignores sensitive issues of privacy and vulnerability.

Opponents of the 2016 law didn't mobilize to put this referendum on the ballot because they object to transgender people being served in coffee shops, bookstores, or hotels. The opposition is fueled solely by concern about the tiny fraction of cases in which the mismatch between someone's bodily sex and gender identity is not only obvious, but makes women or girls uneasy.

Such cases may be rare, but they are real. In December 2017, a biological male who identifies as a woman sought out a women's spa in Milton for a "full Brazilian" waxing. When the spa was unwilling to perform a pubic waxing on a customer with male genitalia, the customer filed a complaint under the public accommodations law with the Attorney General's office. (The complaint was withdrawn before the case went to litigation.)

When the Legislature added "gender identity" to the public accommodations law, it could have exempted private spaces that are routinely segregated by sex. Its refusal to do so is the sole reason the law is now being challenged. The 2016 law rides roughshod over the discomfort, reserve, and modesty of women and girls at the presence of male bodies in a place meant for females only.

This is not an illegitimate concern. Indeed, Massachusetts legislators acknowledged as much, when they passed a 1998 law exempting women's gyms from the state's public-accommodations law. Normally there is no justification for discrimination by sex or gender. But it is only common sense that bathrooms, showers, waxing salons, and other intimate environments require special sensitivity.

The gender-identity law jettisons that sensitivity. Voters, in response, should jettison the law.

Australia's alternative to illegal immigrant farm workers

Thousands of backpackers who travel to Australia will have their working visas extended as the Federal Government looks to permanently end worker shortages on farms.   

Annual working holiday visa caps will be lifted, the age limit raised to 35 for select countries, and backpackers will also be able to triple the length of their stay in some instances after formally agreeing to more agricultural work.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has endorsed the sweeping changes, with backpackers also no longer required to leave jobs every six months.

They will now be encouraged to stay with the same employer for up a year.

The Government has been under increasing pressure to help struggling farmers after the Nationals failed to deliver on a promised agriculture visa, and Mr Morrison's ambitious plan to force dole recipients to pick fruit never got off the ground. 

Nationals MP Keith Pitt urged federal government representatives to increase the number of backpackers because farms in his local Bundaberg region were struggling to survive.

As part of the newly introduced farm labourer push, overseas visitors with a Pacific Islander background will now be able to work for nine months rather than the current six month limit. 

Daily Mail Australia understands Mr Morrison has also not ruled out agreeing to another agriculture visa if the changes don't fill the required jobs on farms.

The Prime Minister said the primary aim was to deliver immediate help and willing workers to farmers.

'Australians filling Australian jobs is my number one priority but when this isn't possible we need to ensure our farmers aren't left high and dry with rotting crops, especially in the strawberry industry,' Mr Morrison told the Courier Mail.

'We want more money in the back pockets of our farmers.'

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

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

I’m Jewish, and I Think the Biggest Increase in Anti-Semitism Is From the Left

Dennis Prager

All my life I have reminded fellow Jews in America that we are the luckiest Jews to have ever lived in a non-Jewish country.

I know what I’m talking about. I wrote a book on anti-Semitism, taught Jewish history at Brooklyn College, and fought anti-Semitism since I was 21, when Israel sent me into the Soviet Union to smuggle in Jewish religious items and smuggle out Jewish names.

Even after the massacre of 11 Jews in a Pittsburgh synagogue, this assessment remains true.

But the greatest massacre of Jews in American history is a unique American tragedy.

It is a tragedy in part because America has finally made the list of countries in which Jews were murdered for being Jews. While this was probably inevitable, given that 330 million people live in America, it is painful—equally for me as an American and as a Jew.

And second, while there is no difference between the murder of Christians at a church and the murder of Jews in a synagogue with regard to the loss of life and the suffering of loved ones, there is something unique about the murder of Jews for being Jews: Anti-Semitism is exterminationist. Anti-Semites don’t just want to persecute, enslave, or expel Jews; they want to kill them all.

On Passover, Jews read the Haggadah, the ancient Jewish prayer book of the Passover Seder. In it are contained these words: “In every generation, they arise to annihilate us”—not “persecute” us; not “enslave” us; annihilate us.

So, when the murderer yelled, “All Jews must die,” he encapsulated the uniqueness of anti-Semitism.

There is another unique aspect to anti-Semitism: It destroys every society in which it grows. The animating force within Adolf Hitler was Jew-hatred. More than anything else—desire for German “Lebensraum,” hatred of Bolshevism, a view of Slavs as subhuman—it was anti-Semitism that invigorated him. Anti-Semitism was not a Nazi scapegoat; it was the Nazis’ raison d’etre.

The results of German anti-Semitism for Germans alone: more than 5 million dead, including half a million German civilians; 130,000 more civilians murdered by the Nazi regime; 12 million Germans expelled from East Europe, 2 million of whom died; innumerable rapes of German women; Germany divided in two for half a century—and the loss of a sense of self and reputation.

I have no idea if, outside the universities and the Israel-hating left, there has been an increase in anti-Semitism in America. I wish I could trust the Anti-Defamation League, other Jewish organizations, and Jewish community newspapers. Sadly, only Jews on the left do, because most of these organizations have a left-wing, anti-Trump agenda.

Here’s a perfect example:

The mainstream left-wing media, along with left-wing Jewish organizations and media, told us every day for months after Donald Trump’s election that anti-Semitism had greatly increased. They cited the great number of Jewish Community Centers that received bomb threats.

It turned out, however, that about 90 percent of those threats were called in by a mentally disturbed American Jewish teenager living in Israel, and the other 10 percent were made by a black radical seeking to frame his ex-girlfriend.

So, the claim eventually vanished from the news—with not one Jewish or non-Jewish organization or media outlet apologizing for crying anti-Semitic “fire” in a crowded theater.

The dishonest now have the Pittsburgh massacre to blame on Trump. But that’s as big a falsehood as blaming Trump for the bomb threats. In reality, the Pittsburgh murderer criticized Trump for his close connections to Jews and Israel.

For Jews to blame the most pro-Israel president since Harry Truman—the only president with a Jewish child and Jewish grandchildren, moreover—for increasing anti-Semitism is another example of a truism this Jew has known all his life: Unlike Jewish liberals, who get most of their values from Judaism, Jewish leftists are ethnically Jewish but get their values from leftism.

The biggest increase in anti-Semitism in the last 10 or so years has come from the left. Just ask young Jews who wear yarmulkes or are vocally pro-Israel on most American college campuses. And this generation’s threat of Jewish annihilation comes from Israel’s Iranian and Arab enemies.

As a Jew who attends synagogue every Shabbat, and as an advocate for the carrying of concealed weapons, I fervently pray we will not need armed guards at American synagogues. America’s uniqueness has been exemplified by the fact that Jews do not need armed guards in their synagogues.

May it always be so.

Even if you don’t love Jews—if you only love America—you need to fight anti-Semites. As the Jews go, so goes the fate of the nation in which they live.

Tanzania announces 'surveillance squad' to hunt down homosexuals

All too often the LGBTQ community joins in the condemnation of white Christian males. But they are in for a rude surprise when the white Christian males are no longer in charge. And importing other people who believe like this while neutering the Christians is going to do what in the USA eventually? and Europe?

Residents in Tanzania’s biggest city have been urged to inform on their neighbours and friends ahead of a police operation to hunt down and jail homosexuals.

A 17-member committee appointed by Paul Makonda, Dar es Salaam’s powerful regional commissioner, will attempt to identify all gay men living in the coastal city after it first convenes next Monday.

Mr Makonda, a close ally of Tanzania’s president, John Magufuli, said that a list of 200 suspects had already been drawn up thanks to public tip-offs and a trawl through Tanzanians’ social media accounts.

“I have information about the presence of many homosexuals in our province,” he told reporters. “These homosexuals boast on social networks. Give me their names. My ad hoc team will begin to get their hands on them next Monday.”

Homosexuality is not strictly illegal in Tanzania. Sodomy, however, carries a sentence of between 30 years and life in prison, while other sexual acts between consenting men also carry jail terms.

Tanzania was seen until recently as more tolerant of homosexuals than neighbouring countries, but the atmosphere has chilled since Mr Magufuli became president in 2015. Last year he announced the closure of AIDS clinics after accusing them of promoting homosexuality.

Mr Makonda, a devout Christian who has long railed against gay Tanzanians, is one of the country’s most powerful figures and is viewed as increasingly untouchable.

Last year he stormed a private television station at the head of a group of armed officers after it declined to broadcast material allegedly incriminating one of his critics in an affair. President Magufuli then sacked the information minister for investigating the raid.

Mr Makonda has also used his role as the government’s chief representative in Dar es Salaam to champion a clampdown on free speech, instructing police to arrest anyone who “insults” political leaders.

Acknowledging the potential for a backlash from the West if homosexuals are detained en masse, Mr Makonda said: “I prefer to anger these countries than to anger God.”

Britain, which will give Tanzania £153m in direct aid this year, is one of Tanzania’s largest bilateral donors.

Canada resort staff were fired for being white - tribunal

Seven staff members, including a caterer, a waitress, a maintenance worker, an aesthetician and a graphic designer, say they were let go because they were white

A Canadian human rights tribunal says seven resort employees were discriminated against for being white.

The Human Rights Tribunal in the westernmost province of British Columbia awarded them more than C$173,000 ($132,000, £102,000).

Resort owner Kin Wa Chan said he wanted to hire Chinese employees because he believed they were cheaper.

The tribunal found the seven staff were forced out in August 2016, and replaced with Chinese workers.

Tribunal chair Diana Juricevic ruled this qualified as discrimination based on race, which is against British Columbia's human rights code.

She dismissed the complaint of an eighth former employee.

"Over a period of months, Mr Chan repeatedly said that he wanted to replace Caucasian employees with ethnically Chinese employees to reduce labour costs," Ms Juricevic wrote in her decision, published last week.

Mr Chan bought the Spruce Hill Resort and Spa in rural British Columbia in 2015, and began extensive renovations in January the next year.

The resort operated at reduced capacity during the renovations, and so Mr Chan let many of the staff go.

Seven of the employees that were kept on during the renovations ended up filing the human rights complaint, after they were fired the following summer or resigned in the course of several days because of what they described as a hostile work environment.

The largest award, of more than C$62,000, went to Clare Fast, who had worked for the resort for 20 years as fitness and human resources manager. Ms Fast testified she heard Mr Chan say that he would not have to pay Chinese employees overtime.

Her belief that she was fired and replaced with a Chinese employee was corroborated by her colleague and fellow complainant, resort bookkeeper Melonie Eva.

In a diary entry dated 20 July 2016, Ms Eva wrote that "[Mr Chan] keeps saying he wants Chinese people" and "[Ms Stocks] and [Ms Fast] must go".

On 3 August, Mr Chan told Ms Fast her human resources tasks would be given to a new employee, an ethnically Chinese student with no human resources experience. With her hours significantly reduced, Ms Fast asked to be laid off.

Leftist insanity hits David Horowitz

We live in strange times. Since the election of Donald Trump, it has often seemed as if half the country has gone blind or, more likely, lost the ability to see beyond their noses. The divisions that have resulted are so deep they have split us effectively into two nations, damaging and destroying individual relationships at every level. The political left and its media blame Trump for this fracturing of the nation’s fabric, but Trump was first the target of accusations that he was a traitor, colluding with the Russians, a racist and white nationalist betraying the country’s founding principles. And it was the Democrats who launched a “resistance” to his presidency, boycotting his inauguration and demanding his overthrow from day one of his presidency.

During the week when the FBI was searching for the Florida pipe-bomber, the anti-Trump media was busy accusing the president of inciting his violence because he referred to them as “Fake News.” According to the talking heads, chants of “CNN Sucks” at Trump rallies had directly inspired a nutcase loner with a long arrest record who had begun threatening bomb attacks decades before Trump had even entered politics. That same week, I happened to watch an MSNBC panel hosted by Nicole Wallace, where every panelist was comparing Trump to Adolf Hitler. Why? Because Trump had just announced he was a “nationalist” and nationalists, according to the panel, without exception, were authoritarian dictators, like Hitler.

In fact (if anyone at MSNBC can be said to be interested in facts) the term “nationalism” was coined by Joseph Mazzini, who created the modern state of Italy. Far from being a dictator, he was a democrat. Moreover, Hitler was not exactly a nationalist, since Germany was already a powerful state. He was a racist who wanted to create an Aryan empire. But this hardly matters to MSNBC panels whose goal is to demonize the president by any means necessary. That same week CNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell was connecting Trump to Hitler in his own perverse manner. Commenting on Trump’s comment that he was a nationalist, O’Donnell said to his audience: “And we all know what word is associated with nationalism: white.”

Obviously “fake news” is much too kind a description of the openly partisan press corps whose one-time journalists are now pursuing careers as professional character assassins. The same politics of personal destruction is also the staple of many campaigns by Democratic Party candidates. None more so than in the state of Florida, where a full-fledged public lynching of Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis is in progress. His opponent, racial demagogue Andrew Gillum, calls every accusation of incompetence and corruption in his tenure as Tallahassee mayor as a “racist attack” because he is black. There could hardly be a more classic example of such demagoguery than this Gillum statement, “Now, I’m not calling Mr. DeSantis a racist. I’m simply saying the racists believe he’s a racist.” [1]

I am one of those “racists” to whom Gillum is referring, perhaps even the primary one. A poor choice, one would think, since I have a public record stretching over 56-years since the publication of my first book, in which I have promoted equal rights for all Americans regardless of race or national origin. I am possibly the only conservative who publicly defended Trayvon Martin during the trial of his killer George Zimmerman. I participated in my first civil rights demonstration for African Americans in 1948, 70 years ago. Since then, I have worked tirelessly on behalf of racial equality, sometimes foolishly as when I was a leftist and raised money for and promoted the Black Panther Party, which turned out to be a criminal gang. Over the last 20 years, I have written three books and several hundred thousand words, all devoted to Martin Luther King’s vision that Americans should judge people by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.

Well, I would have been a poor choice in more sober times, rather than our present circumstances where anyone on the right – or anyone who supports President Trump - is fair game for racial slanderers and a press that no longer cares about the facts. Now I find myself treated as a prop in the public lynching of DeSantis.  A Washington Post headline writer described a gathering I host annually in Palm Beach – “The Restoration Weekend,” as a “racially charged event.” De Santis had attended the Weekend four times to give foreign policy speeches. So the logic was – if we were racists, then DeSantis must be.

The absurdity of the Post’s description of our event – for which no credible evidence was produced – would have been obvious to anyone familiar with our event, which we have held since 1994 with no such attacks, or with the list of our featured speakers and award winners who have included such African American leaders as J.C. Watts, Ben Carson, Herman Cain, Allen West, Jason Reilly, Charles Payne, Candace Owens, Larry Elder, Sonnie Johnson and even the former Democratic Mayor of Washington D.C., Adrian Fenty.

On the basis of the false Post headline, and equally groundless accusations floating around the leftwing hate-sphere, the gathering DeSantis attended was slandered as an event hosted by “an infamous racist,” a “white supremacist,” a “hate-monger,” and an “anti-Muslim fanatic” (this last despite the fact we featured my good friend, Muslim leader Zuhdi Jasser, specifically to defend Islam in a debate with Robert Spencer). These hateful stigmas appeared in the Huffington Post, GQ, Newsweek, New York Magazine, and virtually every major paper in the state of Florida. I asked the Washington Post to print a correction, or provide me with an op-ed column to set the record straight, but to no avail.

Two weeks before the election, when DeSantis and Gillum squared off in a second televised gubernatorial debate, the moderator turned to DeSantis and the race issue. Pointing out that DeSantis had attended four Restoration Weekends hosted by me, he then claimed I had said, “If blacks are oppressed in America, why isn’t there a black exodus?” This was supposed to be my racist comment. To clinch the case, he quoted a DeSantis statement that he was “a big admirer of an organization (my Freedom Center) that shoots straight, tells the American people the truth and is standing up for the right thing.” Gotcha.

My hat is off to Ron DeSantis for having the courage to defend an organization that is under such malicious attack. But the situation that a malevolent, and dishonest media had created for him was an impossible one. In fact, I have said on many occasions that no one is oppressed in America, which is an obvious truth. Otherwise why are there caravans of “people of color” trying to break into our country illegally? To be oppressed? Over a 200-year period Americans have struggled to make good on the Founders’ promise that everyone is created equal and has equal rights. Americans established constitutional amendments and established laws, crowned by the Civil Rights Acts sixty years ago, which outlawed all discrimination on the basis of race. It’s time to celebrate these victories not wallow in the oppressions of the past that are now illegal. A TV debate, however, is not a venue conducive to history lessons or unpacking complex legal victories for the edification of hostile audiences. DeSantis attempted to defend himself by asking – to the groans of the partisan audience – why he should be familiar with everything I had ever said.

This summary moment in the DeSantis lynching was written up for The Daily Beast by a former friend of mine and now a Never Trumper – Ronald Radosh. His article was presented under this headline: “Association With Extremist David Horowitz Catches Up With Ron DeSantis. In other words, to save the failing racist narrative, Radosh was adding another character assassination -“extremist” - to the implausible “white supremacist.” Radosh did have the decency to write: “I have known David Horowitz for about 50 years. He is not, and never has been, a racist, and has defended himself ably from that charge.”

Unfortunately – and incomprehensibly - Radosh chose to preface that honest character witness with a reckless jibe at DeSantis for asking how he could be held responsible for everything I have said: “Forget about ‘every statement,’” Radosh wrote, “DeSantis could have listened to just about any statement Horowitz has made in the last few years.” In other words, any statement would demonstrate that I am an unhinged extremist. This is what you might call throwing mud at the wall – in this case me – and hoping something will stick.

What inspires Radosh’s reckless attacks on me is that I voted for Trump. Actually, I not only voted for Trump I wrote a book about him and his Democratic adversaries, which Radosh could have mined for extremist statements if they existed. Its title was Big Agenda: Trump’s Plan to Save America.” The book was 11 weeks on the New York Times Best-Seller List, and even received a favorable notice from Huffington Post, whose reviewer pointedly noted, “Horowitz also stresses the importance of offering a new deal to Black America in the inner cities, who have suffered for decades under the rule of the Democrats.” The review concludes: “Horowitz’s book will be an epiphany for those who haven’t been paying attention to the political landscape over the last ten years, but it is common sense for the rest of us.”

But not for Radosh, a Never Trumper who has gone over to the other side of the political divide to join a disgraceful lynch party in its attempt to destroy a decent and good man in Ron DeSantis. For Radosh, the ends now apparently justify the means. Once known as a critic of Joseph McCarthy, Radosh’s hatred of Trump has caused him to join a witch-hunt that dwarfs anything McCarthy ever attempted.

Two years before the Trump election, Radosh sent me a birthday email which provides a measure of what has happened. Radosh and I were close friends and political allies for 65 years, from the time we met in 1951 until 2016, when Trump was elected. This is his summary of what those years meant to him:


From: Ron Radosh
Date: January 10, 2014 at 9:11:18 AM PST
To: David Horowitz

Happy birthday David. I knew it was coming up, but didn't realize it was today. So accept my heartiest wishes for a milestone that I passed a year ago.

You are not only a good friend, but the only one I have who is a national treasure and whose good work serves our country as no one else does.


Apparently, a vote for Trump is enough to throw all that out the window, along with the friendship. Apparently, it also provides a license to distort a man’s work, and attempt to destroy his character and credibility by any means necessary. That is the state not only of my broken friendship with Ron Radosh and the political fate of Ron DeSantis, but also of our nation as we approach the days to come.

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

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

          Comment on Long-Running Government Study Finds Cellphone Radiation Causes Cancer in Rats by Marne Glaser      Cache   Translate Page      
One problem with the item about the cellphone radiation study is that it does not reference the results of another recent major animal study on cell tower radiation (wireless radiation at far lower intensities as would be experienced at ground level from a cell antenna at some distance) that was announced shortly after the peer-review results on NTP in March. It was done at the respected Ramazzini Institute in Italy. Their results, at far lower intensities (well within cell phone intensities) showed similar cancers, tumors and DNA breaks as NTP. This is an important piece of news to include. https://microwavenews.com/news-center/more-coincidence I have several bones to pick with Shuren's very traditionally FDA statement. Number one, the FDA was responsible for pre-market testing of cell phones way back when, and traded that responsibility to pre-test and regulate cell phones in exchange for the industry's promise to do a big $28 million health research program, the Wireless Technology Research program, headed by industry-friendly George Carlo. They didn't anticipate that some of the research would show DNA breakage and tumors, and when it did, they ended it and never shared it with the public. FDA's been in industry's pocket ever since. Shuren stated: "In fact, we only begin to observe effects to animal tissue at exposures that are 50 times higher than the current whole body safety limits set by the FCC for radiofrequency energy exposure." This statement is confusing to me. I don't believe he is talking about the NTP study, but rather has switched to talking about the FCC guidelines in general, which are supposed to be 1/50 of the threshold for heating damage for the public (1.6 W/kg), and 1/10 of that threshold for controlled exposure (meaning workers who supposedly have some kind of protection and safety measures). In fact, with cancers showing at 6W/kg in NTP, it turns out the safety margin, if you believe in the heating-only hypothesis, is less than a factor of 4. And then you have to look at the Ramazzini results, where exposures were much lower, and still the cancers were seen. See James Lin's article from an IEEE publication https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/8425056/ He is an expert who has been respected worldwide, even by the industry, over the years. Or read excerpts at https://www.saferemr.com/search?q=analysis+of+ntp Another comment made by Shuren: "...unusual findings in the study, such as: the rats exposed to whole body radiofrequency energy lived longer than rats that were not exposed to any radiation (control group); only male rats exposed to the highest radiofrequency energy dosage developed a statistically significant number of heart schwannomas, which are very rare in humans, when compared to the control group in this experiment. There was also no true dose response, or a lack of a clear relationship between the doses of radiation administered to the animals and their subsequent tumor rate." First, it is not unusual to find some positive results from RF exposure in some studies. Second, sex differences in cancer incidence is nothing unusual. Third, heart schwannomas are rare in rats, too, not just humans, and other heart abnormalities were found in exposed rats, as well. Fourth, many experiments with non-ionizing radiation do not exhibit dose-response effects--some do, some don't. There may be window effects. We are talking biological systems and an agent that is not as easy to track or control as chemistry. Please see Dr. Joel Moskowitz's remarks on NTP for a more careful epidemiological analysis of the results. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rFlZuM6sljTU-XLGDeTQrmWPT6blCdZy/view You see, besides cancers, there were a number of pre-cancerous hyperplasias, as well as tumor incidence increases (such as in female rats) that did not reach significance. I have very little positive confidence in J. Shuren's remarks. They are remarks of convenience. How bad would FDA look if it admitted concerns and did nothing. Nothing is what it intends to do. I had conversations with Abiy Desta back when he was the prime cell phone liaison between FDA and the industry. He was a good boy for them. I asked why the FDA claimed to ensure that cell phones met all FCC guidelines when he knew the SAR body testing was being done (by industry) a few critical millimeters away from the testing "body," thus significantly underestimating the actual radiation absorbed by the body. He said, "Yeah, we asked the FCC why they granted that exemption to the industry when they did SAR testing." "And...?" "They never got back to us." Meanwhile, France has re-tested cell phone body SARs up against the body (with no mm distance) to compare with advertised SARs, and found 90% of cell phones tested without this distance exceeded exposure guidelines. So there you see, your FDA watchdog has hardly been at work. While a short article cannot cover all these things, background knowledge of them on the part of the author helps to leave the reader with a more accurate, or at least less inaccurate, impression.
          U.S. Renews Sanctions On Iran But Exempts 8 Oil Importers, Including China And Japan      Cache   Translate Page      
Updated at 11:45 a.m. ET The U.S. has officially imposed what the Trump administration calls the "toughest ever" sanctions on Iran, meant to curb Tehran's nuclear and missile programs and contain its growing influence in the Middle East. The sanctions are essentially the same ones lifted by the nuclear deal reached during the Obama administration. However, the U.S. quickly exempted several of the world's largest economies, including China, Japan and India. "The Iranian regime has a choice," U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said as he detailed the sanctions on Monday. "It can either do a 180-degree turn from its current course of action and act like a normal country, or it can see its economy crumble." The waivers issued to eight nations — China, India, Italy, Greece, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey — allow those countries to continue buying Iranian oil without consequences. Pompeo called them "temporary" exemptions that would help "ensure a well-supplied oil market." Several

Press Availability
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

          四两拨千斤:Ubuntu kernel eBPF 0day分析      Cache   Translate Page      

中国武术博大精深,其中太极作为不以拙力胜人的功夫备受推崇。同样如果从攻击的角度窥视漏洞领域,也不难看出攻防之间的博弈不乏“太极”的身影,轻巧稳定易利用的漏洞与工具往往更吸引黑客,今天笔者要着墨分析的就是这样一个擅长“四两拨千斤”的0day漏洞。

0day漏洞的攻击威力想必大家都听说过,内核0day更因为其影响范围广,修复周期长而备受攻击者的青睐。近期,国外安全研究者Vitaly Nikolenko在twitter[1]上公布了一个Ubuntu 16.04的内核0day利用代码[2],攻击者可以无门槛的直接利用该代码拿到Ubuntu的最高权限(root);虽然只影响特定版本,但鉴于Ubuntu在全球拥有大量用户,尤其是公有云用户,所以该漏洞对企业和个人用户还是有不小的风险。

笔者对该漏洞进行了技术分析,不管从漏洞原因还是利用技术看,都相当有代表性,是Data-Oriented Attacks在linux内核上的一个典型应用。仅利用传入的精心构造的数据即可控制程序流程,达到攻击目的,完全绕过现有的一些内存防护措施,有着“四两拨千斤”的效果 。

0×02 漏洞原因

这个漏洞存在于Linux内核的eBPF模块,我们先来简单了解下eBPF。

eBPF(extended Berkeley Packet Filter)是内核源自于BPF的一套包过滤机制,严格来说,eBPF的功能已经不仅仅局限于网络包过滤,利用它可以实现kernel tracing,tracfic control,应用性能监控等强大功能。为了实现如此强大的功能,eBPF提供了一套类RISC指令集,并实现了该指令集的虚拟机,使用者通过内核API向eBPF提交指令代码来完成特定的功能。

看到这里,有经验的安全研究者可能会想到,能向内核提交可控的指令代码去执行,很可能会带来安全问题。事实也确实如此,历史上BPF存在大量漏洞 [3]。关于eBPF的更多细节,可以参考这里[4][5]。

eBPF在设计时当然也考虑了安全问题,它在内核中实现了一套verifier机制,过滤不合规的eBPF代码。然而这次的漏洞就出在eBPF的verifier机制。

从最初Vitaly Nikolenko公布的补丁截图,我们初步判断该漏洞很有可能和CVE-2017-16995是同一个漏洞洞[6],但随后有2个疑问: 1.CVE-2017-16995在去年12月份,内核4.9和4.14及后续版本已经修复,为何Ubuntu使用的4.4版本没有修复? 2.CVE-2017-16995是Google Project Zero团队的Jann Horn发现的eBPF漏洞,存在于内核4.9和4.14版本[7],作者在漏洞报告中对漏洞原因只有简短的描述,跟本次的漏洞是否完全相同? 注:笔者所有的代码分析及调试均基于Ubuntu 14.04,内核版本为4.4.0-31-generic #50~14.04.1-Ubuntu[8]。

先来回答第二个问题,中间的调试分析过程在此不表。

参考以下代码,eBPF的verifer代码(kernel/bpf/verifier.c)中会对ALU指令进行检查(check_alu_op),该段代码最后一个else分支检查的指令是:

1.BPF_ALU64|BPF_MOV|BPF_K,把64位立即数赋值给目的寄存器; 2.BPF_ALU|BPF_MOV|BPF_K,把32位立即数赋值给目的寄存器;

但这里并没有对2条指令进行区分,直接把用户指令中的立即数insn->imm赋值给了目的寄存器,insn->imm和目的寄存器的类型是integer,这个操作会有什么影响呢?


四两拨千斤:Ubuntu kernel eBPF 0day分析
我们再来看下,eBPF运行时代码(kernel/bpf/core.c),对这2条指令的解释是怎样的(bpf_prog_run)。 参考以下代码,上面2条ALU指令分别对应ALU_MOV_K和ALU64_MOV_K,可以看出verifier和eBPF运行时代码对于2条指令的语义解释并不一样,DST是64bit寄存器,因此ALU_MOV_K得到的是一个32bit unsigned integer,而ALU64_MOV_K会对imm进行sign extension,得到一个signed 64bit integer。
四两拨千斤:Ubuntu kernel eBPF 0day分析
至此,我们大概知道漏洞的原因,这个逻辑与CVE-2017-16995基本一致,虽然代码细节上有些不同(内核4.9和4.14对verifier进行了较大调整)。但这里的语义不一致又会造成什么影响? 我们再来看下vefier中以下代码(check_cond_jmp_op),这段代码是对BPF_JMP|BPF_JNE|BPF_IMM指令进行检查,这条指令的语义是:如果目的寄存器立即数==指令的立即数(insn->imm),程序继续执行,否则执行pc+off处的指令;注意判断立即数相等的条件,因为前面ALU指令对32bit和64bit integer不加区分,不论imm是否有符号,在这里都是相等的。
四两拨千斤:Ubuntu kernel eBPF 0day分析
再看下eBPF运行时对BPF_JMP|BPF_JNE|BPF_IMM指令的解释(bpf_prog_run),显然当imm为有符合和无符号时,因为sign extension,DST!=IMM结果是不一样的。
四两拨千斤:Ubuntu kernel eBPF 0day分析
注意这是条跳转指令,这里的语义不一致后果就比较直观了,相当于我们可以通过ALU指令的立即数,控制跳转指令的逻辑。这个想象空间就比较大了,也是后面漏洞利用的基础,比如可以控制eBPF程序完全绕过verifier机制的检查,直接在运行时执行恶意代码。

值得一提的是,虽然这个漏洞的原因和CVE-2017-16995基本一样,但但控制跳转指令的思路和CVE-2017-16995中Jann Horn给的POC思路并不一样。感兴趣的读者可以分析下,CVE-2017-16995中POC,因为ALU sign extension的缺陷,导致eBPF中对指针的操作会计算不正确,从而绕过verifier的指针检查,最终读写任意kernel内存。但这种利用方法,在4.4的内核中是行不通的,因为4.4内核的eBPF不允许对指针类型进行ALU运算。

到这里,我们回过头来看下第一个问题,既然漏洞原因一致,为什么Ubuntu 4.4的内核没有修复该漏洞呢?和Linux kernel的开发模式有关。

Linux kernel分mainline,stable,longterm 3种版本[9],一般安全问题都会在mainline中修复,但对于longterm,仅会选择重要的安全补丁进行backport,因此可能会出现,对某个漏洞不重视或判断有误,导致该漏洞仍然存在于longterm版本中,比如本次的4.4 longterm,最初Jann Horn并没有在报告中提到影响4.9以下的版本。 关于Linux kernel对longterm版本的维护,争论由来已久[10],社区主流意见是建议用户使用最新版本。但各个发行版(比如Ubuntu)出于稳定性及开发成本考虑,一般选择longterm版本作为base,自行维护一套kernel。

对于嵌入式系统,这个问题更严重,大量厂商代码导致内核升级的风险及成本都远高于backport安全补丁,因此大部分嵌入式系统至今也都在使用比较老的longterm版本。比如Google Android在去年Pixel /Pixel XL 2发布时,内核版本才从3.18升级到4.4,原因也许是3.18已经进入EOL了(End of Life),也就是社区要宣布3.18进入死亡期了,后续不会在backport安全补丁到3.18,而最新的mainline版本已经到了4.16。笔者去年也在Android kernel中发现了一个未修复的历史漏洞(已报告给google并修复),但upstream在2年前就修复了。

而Vitaly Nikolenko可能是基于CVE-2017-16995的报告,在4.4版本中发现存在类似漏洞,并找到了一个种更通用的利用方法(控制跳转指令)。

0×03 漏洞利用

根据上一节对漏洞原因的分析,我们利用漏洞绕过eBPF verifier机制后,就可以执行任意eBPF支持的指令,当然最直接的就是读写任意内存。漏洞利用步骤如下:

1.构造eBPF指令,利用ALU指令缺陷,绕过eBPF verifier机制;

2.构造eBPF指令,读取内核栈基址;

3.根据泄漏的SP地址,继续构造eBPF指令,读取task_struct地址,进而得到task_struct->cred地址;

4.构造eBPF指令,覆写cred->uid, cred->gid为0,完成提权。

漏洞利用的核心,在于精心构造的恶意eBPF指令,这段指令在Vitaly Nikolenko的exp中是16机制字符串(char *__prog),并不直观,笔者为了方便,写了个小工具,把这些指令还原成比较友好的形式,当然也可以利用eBPF的调试机制,在内核log中打印出eBPF指令的可读形式。我们来看下这段eBPF程序,共41条指令(笔者写的小工具的输出):

ins 40: code(95) jmp | exit | imm, dst_reg 0, src_reg 0, off 0, imm 0
parsed 41 ins, total 41 稍微解释下,ins 0 和 ins 1 一起完成了绕过eBPF verifier机制。ins 0指令后,regs[9] = 0xffffffff,但在verifier中,regs[9].imm = -1,当执行ins 1时,jmp指令判断regs[9] == 0xffffffff,注意regs[9]是64bit integer,因为sign extension,regs[9] == 0xffffffff结果为false,eBPF跳过2(off)条指令,继续往下执行;而在verifier中,jmp指令的regs[9].imm == insn->imm结果为true,程序走另一个分支,会执行ins 3 jmp|exit指令,导致verifier认为程序已结束,不会去检查其余的dead code。

这样因为eBPF的检测逻辑和运行时逻辑不一致,我们就绕过了verifier。后续的指令就是配合用户态exp完成对kernel内存的读写。

这里还需要知道下eBPF的map机制,eBPF为了用户态更高效的与内核态交互,设计了一套map机制,用户态程序和eBPF程序都可以对map区域的内存进行读写,交换数据。利用代码中,就是利用map机制,完成用户态程序与eBPF程序的交互。

ins4-ins5: regs[9] = struct bpf_map *map,得到用户态程序申请的map的地址,注意这2条指令,笔者的静态解析并不准确,获取map指针的指令,在eBPF verifier中,会对指令内容进行修改,替换map指针的值。 ins6-ins12: 调用bpf_map_lookup_elem(map, &key),返回值为regs[0] = &map->value[0] ins13: regs[6] = *regs[0], regs[6]得到map中key=0的value值 ins14-ins20: 继续调用bpf_map_lookup_elem(map, &key),regs[0] = &map->value[1] ins21: regs[7] = *regs[0],regs[7]得到map中key=1的value值 ins22-ins28: 继续调用bpf_map_lookup_elem(map, &key),regs[0] = &map->value[2] ins29: regs[8] = *regs[0],regs[8]得到map中key=2的value值 ins30: regs[2] = regs[0] ins32: if(regs[6] != 0) jmp ins32 + 3,根据用户态传入的key值不同,做不同的操作 ins33: regs[3] = *regs[7],读取regs[7]中地址的内容,用户态的read原语,就在这里完成,regs[7]中的地址为用户态传入的任意内核地址 ins34: *regs[2] = regs[3],把上调指令读取的值返回给用户态 ins36: if(regs[6] != 1) jmp ins36 + 2 ins37: *regs[2] = regs[FP], 读取eBPF的运行时栈指针,返回给用户态,注意这个eBPF的栈指针实际上指向bpf_prog_run函数中的一个局部uint64数组,在内核栈上,从这个值可以得到内核栈的基址,这段指令对应用户态的get_fp ins39: *regs[7] = regs[8],向regs[7]中的地址写入regs[8],对应用户态的write原语,regs[7]中的地址为用户态传入的任意内核地址

理解了这段eBPF程序,再看用户态exp就很容易理解了。需要注意的是,eBPF指令中的3个关键点:泄漏FP,读任意kernel地址,写任意kernel地址,在verifier中都是有检查的,但因为开始的2条指令完全绕过了verifier,导致后续的指令长驱直入。

笔者在Ubuntu 14.04上提权成功:这种攻击方式和传统的内存破坏型漏洞不同,不需要做复杂的内存布局,只需要修改用户态传入的数据,就可以达到控制程序指令流的目的,利用的是原有程序的正常功能,会完全绕过现有的各种内存防御机制(SMEP/SMAP等),有一种四两拨千斤的效果。这也是这两年流行的Data-Oriented Attacks,在linux kernel中似乎并不多见。

0×04 漏洞影响范围&修复

因为linux kernel的内核版本众多,对于安全漏洞的影响范围往往并不容易确认,最准确的方式是搞清楚漏洞根因后,从代码层面判断,但这也带来了高成本的问题,快速应急时,我们往往需要尽快确认漏洞影响范围。从前面的漏洞原理来看,笔者大致给一个全面的linux kernel受影响版本:

3.18-4.4所有版本(包括longterm 3.18,4.1,4.4);

<3.18,因内核eBPF还未引入verifier机制,不受影响。

对于大量用户使用的各个发行版,还需要具体确认,因为该漏洞的触发,还需要2个条件

1.Kernel编译选项CONFIG_BPF_SYSCALL打开,启用了bpf syscall;

2./proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_bpf_disabled设置为0,允许非特权用户调用bpf syscall

而Ubuntu正好满足以上3个条件。关于修复,upstream kernel在3月22日发布的4.4.123版已经修复该漏洞[11][12], Ubuntu官方4月5日也正式发布了安全公告和修复版本[13][14],没有修复的同学可以尽快升级了。

但现在距漏洞Exp公开已经过去20多天了,在漏洞应急时,我们显然等不了这么久,回过头看看当初的临时修复方案:

1.设置/proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_bpf_disabled为1,也是最简单有效的方式,虽然漏洞仍然存在,但会让exp失效;

2.使用Ubuntu的预发布源,更新Ubuntu 4.4的内核版本,因为是非正式版,其稳定性无法确认。

Vitaly Nikolenko在twitter上公布的Ubuntu预发布源:all 4.4 ubuntu aws instances are vulnerable: echo “deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial-proposed restricted main multiverse universe” > /etc/apt/sources.list && apt update && apt install linux-image-4.4.0-117-generic

Ubuntu的非正式内核版本,做了哪些修复,我们可以看下补丁的关键内容(注意这是Ubuntu的kernel版本,非upstream):

git diff Ubuntu-lts-4.4.0-116.140_14.04.1 Ubuntu-lts-4.4.0-117.141_14.04.1ALU指令区分了32bit和64bit立即数,同时regs[].imm改为了64bit integer
四两拨千斤:Ubuntu kernel eBPF 0day分析
还增加了一项有意思的检查,把所有的dead_code替换为nop指令,这个明显是针对exp来的,有点类似于exp的mitigation,upstream kernel可能并不一定喜欢这样的修复风格:)
四两拨千斤:Ubuntu kernel eBPF 0day分析
关于这个漏洞,Ubuntu还有一些相关的修复代码,感兴趣的读者,可以自行发掘。 我们再看下upstream kernel 4.4.123的修复,相比之下,要简洁的多,仅有3行代码改动[12]:

当处理32bit ALU指令时,如果imm为负数,直接忽略,认为是UNKNOWN_VALUE,这样也就避免了前面提到的verifer和运行时语义不一致的问题。


四两拨千斤:Ubuntu kernel eBPF 0day分析
另外Android kernel上,bpf sycall是没有启用的,所以不受该漏洞影响。 0×05 引发的思考

我们回顾以下整个漏洞分析过程,有几点值得注意和思考:

1.eBPF作为内核提供的一种强大机制,因为其复杂的过滤机制,稍有不慎,将会引入致命的安全问题,笔者推测后续eBPF可能还会有类似安全漏洞。 2.受限于linux kernel的开发模式及众多版本,安全漏洞的确认和修复可能存在被忽视的情况,出现N day变0 day的场景。 3.Vitaly Nikolenko公布漏洞exp后,有网友就提出了批评,在厂商发布正式补丁前,不应该公布细节。我们暂且不讨论Vitaly Nikolenko的动机,作为一名安全从业者,负责任的披露漏洞是基本守则。 4.笔者所在公司使用的OS是经过专门的团队量身定制,进行了不少的安全加固和冗余组件裁剪,故不受到此次漏洞影响。可见维护一个安全可靠的OS不失为保障大型企业的安全方案之一。

感谢阅读,行文匆忙,如有不正之处,敬请指出。

          SSPX priests at Albano, Italy do not deny it. Like Archbishop Lefebvre they interpret the Catechism of Pope Pius X as a rupture with the Syllabus of Errors..The liberals do the same      Cache   Translate Page      

There is denial from the SSPX priests at Albano, Italy. 
They make the same error as Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.
They interpret the Catechism of Pope Pius X as a rupture with the Syllabus of Errors of Pope Pius IX.
I had mentioned in a previous blog post that :
Since invisible cases of the baptism of desire(BOD), baptism of blood(BOB) and being saved in invincible ignorance(I.I) were visible exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus(EENS) for Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, who accepted the Letter of the Holy Office 1949, he rejected Feeneyite EENS.
So he was saying that everyone needs to enter the Church as a member for salvation except for those saved outside the Church with BOD,BOB and I.I.The popes and the liberals say the same.
Since hypothetical cases of BOD, BOB and I.I were exceptions to EENS he used the same reasoning to interpret Vatican Council II as was common in 1965.
Lumen Gentium 16 ( invincible ignorance) etc were exceptions to EENS.But here instead of accepting Unitatis Redintigratio 3 etc  as being a break with EENS and an ecumenism of return( as he had accepted BOD, BOB and I.I) he criticizes UR 3 etc, for being a rupture with an ecumenism of return.Bishop Fellay does the same today.
It was clear for Archbishop Lefebvre Protestants and non Christians needed to convert into the Catholic Church for salvation.But he accepted cases of BOD, BOB and I.I with reference to EENS  but he could not accept hypothetical cases of UR 3 etc in Vatican Council II with reference to an ecumenism of return.
Hypothetical cases ( UR 3, LG 16 etc) were non hypothetical for him.He must have been confused, though obedient to the popes, like the rest of the Church.
But hypothetical cases of invincible ignorance for example, mentioned in the Catechism of Pope Pius X would be an exception to the Syllabus of Errors of Pope Pius IX on an ecumenism of return and no salvation outside the Church.
The Catechism of Pope Pius X would contradict the Syllabus for Archbishop Lefebvre.Also this Catechism would contradict the past exclusivist ecclesiology of the Catholic Church. Since for him BOD, BOB and I.I were already exceptions to EENS.
This is also how the SSPX priests in Italy interpret Vatican Council II. It would be the same for the new Superior General Davide Pagliarani  who is also from Italy.
I have mentioned in answer to a question :
The Catechism refers those saved in invincible ignorance.
Being saved in invincible ignorance is an exception to the dogma EENS for Archbishop Lefebvre and the SSPX.
The Syllabus of Errors affirms EENS.
The Syllabus of Errors also affirms an ecumenism of return.
The Syllabus of Errors also affirms the past exlusivist ecclesiology upon which was based the proclamation of the Social Reign of Christ the King.
So when invincible ignorance is assumed to be known people saved outside the Church it would be an exception to the Syllabus of Errors on EENS.
So the Catechism of Pope Pius X would contradict the Syllabus of Errors for Archbishop Lefebvre.
The Catechism of Pope Pius X would also contradict itself for the Archbishop. Since this Catechism says all need to be members of the Church for salvation. It does not state that invincible ignorance is an exception to all needing to be members of the Church.But this is how Archbishop Lefebvre and the present SSPX and liberal Cushingites would interpret it.It would be the same for the St.Benedict Center who interpret Vatican Council II as a rupture with EENS.
For the SSPX in the Catechism of the Catholic Church n.1257( The Necessity of Baptism) would also contradict itself. Since it says the Church knows of no means to eternal beatiude other than the baptism of water and also says God is not limited to the Sacraments.
So the SSPX have to admit that they have made a mistake in the interpretation of the Catechism of Pope Pius X and the Syllabus of Errors. The same mistake they made in the interpretation of Vatican Council II and extra ecclesiam nulla salus.

For Archbishop Lefebvre the Catechism of Pope Pius X was a rupture with the Syllabus of Errors of Pope Pius IX : clarification from the SSPX needed

          For Archbishop Lefebvre the Catechism of Pope Pius X was a rupture with the Syllabus of Errors of Pope Pius IX : clarification from the SSPX needed      Cache   Translate Page

The Catechism of Pope Pius X would contradict the Syllabus for Archbishop Lefebvre.Also this Catechism would contradict the past exclusivist ecclesiology of the Catholic Church. Since for him BOD, BOB and I.I were already exceptions to EENS.
Today the SSPX can reverse this whole cycle of error. They have to assume that BOD, BOB and I.I refer to hypothetical cases only. They refer to invisible people in our reality.This is common sense. So BOD, BOB and I.I never were exceptions to the strict interpretation of EENS. There are no practical exceptions to EENS.
They would then be confirming the General Chapter Statement on Doctrine of the SSPX(2012) which supported EENS(Feeneyite) with BOD, BOB and I.I not being exceptions.But there was no doctrinal support from the CDF/Ecclesia Dei on this point.
Then the SSPX must announce that Vatican Council II ( UR 3, LG 8,LG 14, LG 16, NA 2, GS 22 etc) is not a rupture with EENS and the past ecclesiology of the Church.So theologically there can only be an ecumenism of return with outside the Church there being no salvation.
So the Catechism of Pope Pius X when it mentioned invincible ignorance, would not contradict the Syllabus of Errors on ecumenism and no salvation in non Christian religions.
EENS is also the basis for proclaiming the Social Reign of Christ the King and the non separation of Church and State.
So the past ecclesiology of the Catholic Church would then be the same today.It is the same before and after Vatican Council II at the Traditional Latin Mass and the Novus Ordo Mass.
There is no rupture with Tradition when this rational interpretation is used i.e invisible people are invisible,hypothetical cases of BOD, BOB ad I.I and LG 8, LG 16, UR 3 etc are just hypothetical.This is something obvious which the SSPX could affirm. -Lionel Andrades

Was Vatican Council II Magisterial ? : there is an objective error in the text and on this point at least the Council could not be guided by the Holy Spirit

Fr.Leonard Feeney was saying that those who die in a state of Justification with or without the baptism of water, are not known to us. Literally there are no such cases. Practically they cannot be objective exceptions to the dogmatic teaching on exclusive salvation in the Catholic Church.We do not know who they are and where do they go after death.

The Catholic politicians in Italy can affirm all the teachings of the Catholic Church without an irrational premise and inference : their conclusion would be different from the Left.
