          SWIFT says suspending some Iranian banks' access to messaging system      Cache   Translate Page      
The Belgium-based SWIFT financial messaging service said on Monday it is suspending some unspecified Iranian banks’ access to its messaging system in the interest of the stability and integrity of the global financial system. In a brief statement, SWIFT made no mention of U.S. sanctions coming back into effect on some Iranian financial institutions on Monday as part of U.S. President Donald Trump’s effort to force Iran to curtail its nuclear, missile and regional activities. The SWIFT statement said suspending the Iranian banks access to the messaging system was a "regrettable" step but was "taken in the interest of the stability and integrity of the wider global financial system." Having abandoned the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, 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.

          UPDATE: U.S. targets Iran with fresh round of sanctions; EU seeks to protect its firms      Cache   Translate Page      
The United States on Monday restored sanctions targeting Iran's oil, banking and transportation sectors and threatened more action to stop its "outlaw" policies, steps the Islamic Republic called economic warfare and vowed to defy. The sanctions cover 50 Iranian banks and subsidiaries, more than 200 persons and vessels in its shipping sector, and targets Tehran's national airline, Iran Air, and more than 65 of its aircraft. The measures are part of a wider effort by U.S. President Donald Trump to curb Tehran's missile and nuclear programs and diminish the Islamic Republic's influence in the Middle East, notably its support for proxies in Syria, Yemen and Lebanon. Trump's moves target Iran's main source of revenue - its oil exports - as well as its financial sector, essentially making the 50 Iranian banks and subsidiaries off limits to foreign banks on pain of losing access to the U.S. financial system. The administration said it had toughened the sanctions by roughly 300 new designations
          U.S. allows eight importers to keep buying Iran oil for now      Cache   Translate Page      
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."

          Russia warns Israel of military action if Syria is attacked      Cache   Translate Page      
Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: David Dolan, he’s the man who gives us an Middle East news update on a weekly bases. Now this is essential for you who are students of Bible prophecy. David let me talk to you about Russia giving a warning to Israel that if they make any provocative moves in the air space or with air strikes in Syria they may have to face the Russian military; pretty strong language for the Russians to the Israeli’s isn’t it?

DD: Very much so Jimmy, that was a senior Russian General who made that comment on Tuesday. He said that hot heads should not resume any operations in Syria meaning of course Israel. He said any provocative actions as he called it on Syrian territory would be met by a Russian response. So that is a very very serious statement.

But Jimmy it comes after Israel’s army spokesman last weekend said that the 34 rockets that were fired from the Gaza Strip in just a 12 hour period on Friday and Saturday came at the orders of the Iranian leader in Syria General Salami that he ordered his forces his allied Islamic Jihad forces in the Gaza Strip to open fire. And Israel said at the time the army spokesman talked about this as did the Prime Minister later on and they said we will indeed respond. In fact, in an off the record interview that Prime Minister Netanyahu gave he hinted that the cooperation’s are continuing. Maybe not major airstrikes but he said we are still on the ground doing things in Syria that we can’t talk about. He said, we haven’t given up that game.

So, basically this boils down to what we’ve seen before Jimmy that the Israeli’s fear that any action in Gaza will be met by a response not just from Gaza but from Iranian forces in Lebanon and in Syria and maybe from Iran itself. But Jimmy it’s that Russian threat from the north with Iran that is the main thing on the Prime Minister’s mind and the main thing on Israeli minds.

JD: David Dolan with the details behind the Russian military action against Israel.

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

Russia has a large military operation in Syria there to protect President Assad and his people. The Russian warning to Israel of military action against the Jewish state is a page out of Bible prophecy. In Ezekiel 38 Magog who is Russia today, Magog will lead a major force against Israel. Daniel 11:40 says that the king of the north, that would be Syria today, that Syria will be the first nation to attack Israel. This scenario is ready to happen.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The stage is set for these prophecies to be fulfilled.

          Despite all the brave talk, israel confirms that no further illegal attacks on Syria have taken since Syria received S-300s      Cache   Translate Page      
Sputnik – 05.11.2018
Russia has delivered 49 units of its sophisticated S-300 long-range surface-to-air missile systems to Syria in wake of the accidental destruction of a Russian Il-20 plane by Syrian air defenses responding to an Israeli attack.
Ksenia Svetlova, who sits on the Israeli parliament’s defense committee has confirmed that Israeli warplanes had not approached Syria’s airspace since Russia supplied it with S-300 missile systems.
“There hasn’t been a single mission since Syria received S-300s. The S-300 has changed the balance of power in the region,” she told reporters.
The statement confirmed the Al-Masdar News report, citing an unnamed military source in Damascus, saying that the Israeli Air Force (IAF) hasn’t attacked Syria since Russia delivered the S-300 air defense system to the Syrian government forces.
The source claimed that the IAF hadn’t violated Syria’s airspace from either the disputed Golan Heights or Lebanon, although it has flown close to the border.
The military insider also denied an anonymous Israeli official’s claim, reported by Reuters, that Tel Aviv had carried out attacks after the downing of the Russian warplane on September 17.
The source further told Al-Masdar that the Russian military was still training the Syrian air defense units to use the S-300s in the provinces of Latakia and Hama.
On October 29, Reuters cited a senior Israeli official as saying that the IDF had attacked Syria, “including after the downing of the Russian plane,” while Israel’s Channel 1 reported that one of the strikes had targeted an alleged Iranian shipment of equipment destined for Hezbollah.
The delivery of 49 units of S-300s was completed in early October after the Russian Defense Ministry announced that it would supply Syria with air defense systems to improve the security of Russian troops stationed there.
The decision was made in the aftermath of the inadvertent destruction of a Russian Il-20 reconnaissance aircraft by Syrian air defenses repelling an Israeli air strike.
The Russian military has blamed the wreckage on Tel Aviv, emphasizing that an Israeli fighter jet had used the Russian plane as a shield against Syrian air defense systems. Israel has dismissed the accusations, claiming that it had warned Moscow about the upcoming air raid in the area in advance.

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.

THE FIRST JUDGEMENT OF THE EARTH STARTED WITH WATER-IT ONLY MAKES SENSE THE LAST GENERATION WILL BE HAVING FLOODING
GENESIS 7:6-12
6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.
7 And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.
8 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,
9 There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.
10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.
11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
GOD PROMISED BY A RAINBOW-THE EARTH WOULD NEVER BE DESTROYED TOTALLY WITH A FLOOD AGAIN.BUT FLOODIING IS A SIGN OF JUDGEMENT.

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.

Palestinian-American woman detained at airport, to be deported-Immigration authorities say decision to deny Susan Abulhawa entry due to past incident at border crossing and not connected to BDS-By AFP-5 November 2018

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)

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.

          Photo Flash: Pittsburgh Opera Continues 80th Season With HANSEL & GRETEL      Cache   Translate Page      

Pittsburgh Opera continues our 80th season with Englebert Humperdinck's Hansel & Gretel.

Based on the classic fairy tale by The Brothers Grimm, Hansel & Gretel is a fantastical story of a young brother and sister who must navigate an enchanted forest full of twists, turns, and one wicked witch.

Siblings Hansel and Gretel are poor peasants whose mother sends them to forage for strawberries in a haunted forest. They get lost and spend the night in the woods. The next morning, they stumble upon a gingerbread house inhabited by a witch, played by Pittsburgh favorite Marianne Cornetti, who imprisons them. It will take all their wits to escape before she eats them!

Since its premiere in 1893, this beloved opera has delighted millions. With Humperdinck's sweeping score, this whimsical operatic confection is sure to please both adults and children.

Originally written in German, Pittsburgh Opera will be performing it in English. Antony Walker conducts and Mt. Lebanon native Crystal Manich directs.

On stage November 3, 6, 9, & 11, Hansel & Gretel makes an equally good date night, girls' night out, and family outing. Adult tickets start at just $14 - children's tickets for those ages 6-18 are half-price, and start at just $7. Season, group, and single tickets are now on sale and available online.

In addition, Pittsburgh Opera's annual Student Matinee will introduce 2,500+ school children grades 3-12 to this lively, colorful opera on Thursday, Nov. 8th at the Benedum Center.

          Λίβανος: Μεγαλύτερες ποσότητες υδρογονανθράκων στην Ανατολική Μεσόγειο, ευχή ή κατάρα;      Cache   Translate Page      

Του Αθανάσιου Πίτατζη
 
Με το τουρκικό γεωτρύπανο έτοιμο να αρχίσει γεωτρήσεις στην Ανατολική Μεσόγειο και το τουρκικό σεισμογραφικό πλοίο «Barbaros» να εκτελεί σεισμικές έρευνες ή τουλάχιστον να επιχειρεί ανάμεσα σε Κύπρο και Κρήτη συνοδεία του Τουρκικού Ναυτικού, στην άκρη της λεκάνης της Ανατολικής Μεσογείου και πιο συγκεκριμένα στην ΑΟΖ του Λιβάνου, πρόσφατες μελέτες σεισμογραφικών εταιρειών που παρουσιάστηκαν στο Λονδίνο τον Σεπτέμβριο του 2018, πιστοποιούν πιθανότατα την ύπαρξη αρκετά μεγάλων ποσοτήτων πετρελαίου και φυσικού αερίου.
Βέβαια, οι μελέτες αυτές είναι με μεγάλο ποσοστό αβεβαιότητας και μέχρι να εκτελεστούν γεωτρήσεις, αυτές οι ποσότητες είναι στα χαρτιά και δεν είναι εμπορικά διαθέσιμες. Όμως, πιστοποιούν ότι η λεκάνη της Νοτιοανατολικής Μεσογείου έχει να μας δώσει πολύ μεγάλες εκπλήξεις όσον αφορά τις ανακαλύψεις νέων κοιτασμάτων υδρογονανθράκων.

Λίβανος εξόρυξη υδρογονανθράκων, από καθυστέρηση σε καθυστέρηση
 
Ο Λίβανος όπως και η Ελλάδα κήρυξε τον πρώτο γύρο για προσέλκυση εταιρειών για εξερεύνηση και παραγωγή υδρογονανθράκων στην ΑΟΖ του to 2013-2014, και μετά από χρόνια αδράνειας και πολιτικής αναταραχής, η διαδικασία ολοκληρώθηκε στις αρχές του 2018. Ο λόγος που παρομοιάζουμε τον Λίβανο με την Ελλάδα στο θέμα εξερεύνησης και παραγωγής υδρογονανθράκων είναι οι πολλές κοινές αδυναμίες που εντοπίζονται στον σωστό τρόπο και αδράνειας στην λήψη αποφάσεων, την υψηλή διαφθορά, τα πολιτικά παιχνίδια από την εκάστοτε κυβέρνηση με αυτό το θέμα και τέλος τις χρονοβόρες διαδικασίες αδειοδότησης.
Βέβαια, και οι δύο χώρες τα τελευταία χρόνια έχουν βελτιώσει πολλά σημεία από τα παραπάνω, αλλά χρειάζεται ακόμη πολύ δουλειά επί του θέματος.

Τα αποτελέσματα του πρώτου γύρου αδειοδότησης στον Λίβανο ανακήρυξαν σαν νικητή της διαδικασίας το κονσόρτσιουμ εταιρειών που αποτελείται από τις γνωστές εταιρείες υδρογονανθράκων την Ιταλική ΕΝΙ και την Γαλλική Total, αλλά και την Ρωσική JSCNovatek για τα οικόπεδα 4 και 9. Το τελευταίο οικόπεδο συνορεύει με την Ισραηλινή ΑΟΖ, όπου υπάρχει μια διαφορά μεταξύ των δύοχωρών. Επίσης αυτό το οικόπεδο συνορεύει και με το Ισραηλινό οικόπεδο που περιέχει τα κοιτάσματα φυσικού Αερίου Taninκαι Karish, τα οποία διαχειρίζεται η Ελληνική εταιρεία υδρογονανθράκων Ενεργειακή Αιγαίου (EnergeanOilandGas). Αυτό το οικόπεδο θα ανεβάσει το γεωπολιτικό θερμόμετρο ανάμεσα στο Ισραήλ και το Λίβανο.


Σύμφωνα με τις πρόσφατες μελέτες σεισμογραφικών εταιρειών ο Λίβανος ενδέχεται να έχει στην Αποκλειστική Οικονομική Ζώνη του πιθανότατα μεγάλες ποσότητες φυσικό αερίου και πετρελαίου, αυτά τα κοιτάσματα είναι παρόμοια με αυτά της Κύπρου και του Ισραήλ και ανήκουν στο ίδιο πετρελαϊκό σύστημα της Λεκάνης της Λεβαντίνης, όπως το Κυπριακό Αφροδίτη και όλα τα Ισραηλινά κοιτάσματα. Παρακάτω παρουσιάζονται εφτά πιθανές περιοχές ¨στην ΑΟΖ του Λιβάνου που μπορεί να περιέχουν κοιτάσματα πετρελαίου.

Σύμφωνα με την εταιρεία σεισμογραφικών ερευνών Spectrum, το οικόπεδο 5 στην ΑΟΖ του Λιβάνου μπορεί να περιέχει:

- 25+ κοιτάσματα στόχους για γεωτρήσεις μια συγκεκριμένης γεωλογικής κατηγορίας, οι οποίοι έχουν μέγεθος από 30 έως 50 τρισεκατομμύρια κυβικά πόδια φυσικού αερίου ή αλλιώς από 5 έως 8.3 ισοδύναμα δισεκατομμύρια μέτρα πετρελαίου

- 2 μεγάλα κοιτάσματα στόχους για γεωτρήσεις μια συγκεκριμένης γεωλογικής κατηγορίας, οι οποίοι έχουν μέγεθος από 8 εώς 15 τρισεκατομμύρια κυβικά πόδια φυσικού αερίου ή αλλιώς από 1.3 έως 2.5 ισοδύναμα δισεκατομμύρια μέτρα πετρελαίου.

Οι επιπλοκές με το Ισραήλ σε αυτήν την περίπτωση θα ήταν καταστροφικές και για την Ελλάδα και για την Κύπρο. Οπότε η Ελλάδα και η Κύπρος θα πρέπει να εξετάσουν αυτό το μελλοντικό σενάριο πολύ σοβαρά, και να το λάβουν υπόψη τους στους μελλοντικούς γεωπολιτικούς και ενεργειακούς σχεδιασμούς. Ένας άγνωστος Χ θα είναι και η μελλοντική γεωπολιτική εμπλοκή των ΗΠΑ, της ΕΕ και της Ρωσίας σε μια τέτοια κατάσταση.

Ίσως όχι η πιο οικονομικότερη  λύση, αλλά γεωπολιτικά αποδεκτή από όλες τις χώρες στην περιοχή για την μελλοντική αξιοποίηση των κοιτασμάτων του Λιβάνου, είναι η εξαγωγή υγροποιημένου φυσικού αερίου από πλωτή εξέδρα (το λεγόμενο και FLNG)

Αυτή η επιλογή θα έλυνε αυτόν τον γεωπολιτικό μελλοντικό γόρδιο δεσμό. Συνολικά τα οικόπεδα 3 και 5 της ΑΟΖ του Λιβάνου, μπορεί να περιέχουν κοιτάσματα/στόχους  φυσικού αερίου για γεωτρήσεις μεγέθους μεγαλύτερα από 100 τρισεκατομμύρια κυβικά πόδια φυσικού αερίου ή 16 ισοδύναμα δισεκατομμύρια μέτρα πετρελαίου.

Ο Λίβανος ανακοίνωσε ότι αυτόν τον μήνα θα προκηρύξει νέο γύρο για προσέλκυση εταιρειών για εξερεύνηση και παραγωγή υδρογονανθράκων, ο οποίος αναμένεται να ολοκληρωθεί μέχρι το τέλος το 2019. Τέλος να αναφέρουμε ότι για να κατανοήσουμε το πιθανό μέγεθος των αποθεμάτων του Λιβάνου (με μεγάλη πιθανότητα από 50 εώς 100 τρισεκατομμύρια κυβικά πόδια φυσικού αερίου), θα πρέπει να τα συγκρίνουμε με τα 22 μεγαλύτερα κοιτάσματα φυσικού αερίου παγκοσμίως.

Λίστα με τα 22 μεγαλύτερα κοιτάσματα φυσικού αερίου παγκοσμίως, Πηγή: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_natural_gas_fields
Είναι εμφανές, ότι το πιθανό μέγεθος των αποθεμάτων φυσικού αερίου του Λιβάνου θα είναι ένα υπολογίσιμο μέγεθος παγκοσμίως, που θα βρίσκεται πολύ κοντά στον μεγαλύτερο εισαγωγέα φυσικού αερίου, την Ευρώπη. Βέβαια, όπως αναφέραμε ήδη σε αυτό το άρθρο μέχρι να γίνουν γεωτρήσεις, όλα αυτά τα νούμερα/μεγέθη είναι μελέτες, οι οποίες βέβαια πρέπει να λαμβάνονται πολύ σοβαρά.
Επίλογος
Η Νοτιοανατολική Μεσόγειος είναι πολύ κοντά στο να γίνει ο νέος Περσικός Κόλπος, το μέγεθος των υδρογονανθράκων της περιοχής μεγαλώνει γεωμετρικά χρόνο με το χρόνο. Αυτή η γεωπολιτική πραγματικότητα, μπορεί είτε να προσφέρει οικονομική ευημερία και σταθερότητα για όλες τις χώρες της περιοχής είτε περιφερειακή αποσταθεροποίηση δεκαετιών.

          Royal Mint rejected Roald Dahl coin over antisemitic views | Books per The Guardian      Cache   Translate Page      
'Dahl told the New Statesman: "There is a trait in the Jewish character that does provoke animosity, maybe it's a kind of lack of generosity towards non-Jews. I mean, there's always a reason why anti-anything crops up anywhere; even a stinker like Hitler didn't just pick on them for no reason."

In an interview with the Independent in 1990, months before his death, he described himself as antisemitic and railed against the "Jewish-owned" media.

He told the publication: "It began in 1982 when the Israelis invaded Lebanon. They killed 22,000 civilians when they bombed Beirut. It was very much hushed up in the newspapers because they are primarily Jewish-owned …

"I'm certainly anti-Israeli and I've become antisemitic in as much as that you get a Jewish person in another country like England strongly supporting Zionism. I think they should see both sides. It's the same old thing: we all know about Jews and the rest of it.

          Why the Holy Land is the 'fifth gospel' of Christianity      Cache   Translate Page      

Jerusalem, Nov 7, 2018 / 03:07 am (CNA).- Pilgrimage to the Holy Land is a powerful journey that can ignite Christian faith through seeing the places Jesus walked, worked miracles, died and rose from the dead.

The Franciscans who have served in the region say people should go.

“When you come here, you are very moved by the experience. It puts the gospel in perspective,” Father Athanasius Macora, O.F.M., told CNA from Jerusalem. “It’s a very powerful tool for evangelizing or re-evangelizing Catholics.”

Macora, an American, is a friar of the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land, which oversees the holy sites, helps support the Christian presence in the Holy Land, and welcomes Christian pilgrims from around the world.

Another Holy Land Franciscan, the Ghana-born Father Benjamin Owusu, O.F.M., reflected that the Christian experience of Jesus Christ preceded the written scriptures.

“Jesus said we should go and proclaim the gospel. And the gospel was proclaimed. People came to believe. But not in the written part of revelation… if the Word became flesh, it became flesh in a place. Where is that place? That is the Holy Land,” Owusu told CNA. “The Holy Land also testifies to the Word made Flesh, and that makes it more real to us.”

“By going to the Holy Land, the Holy Land becomes real in the life of Christians because of what it stands for,” he continued. “It is, as Pope Paul VI put it, the ‘fifth gospel’ which is not written on ink, but written on stones.”

Owusu works in the pilgrimage office of the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America, the Franciscan Custody’s outpost in Washington, D.C. The monastery itself hosts replicas of holy sites and holds various events to help link visitors to the land where Jesus Christ walked.

The Holy Land includes Israel, the Palestinian territories, and parts of Lebanon, Jordan and Syria.

The diversity of Christian sites there range from the churches and other places marking events like the Annunciation in Nazareth, the Nativity in Bethlehem, Jesus’ ministry along the Sea of Galilee, and of course Jerusalem, where the site of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection is now marked by the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

Added to these places are the living legacy of the Jewish people. The Wailing Wall, located at the base of the site of the Temple of King David, gathers thousands of Jews who pray and celebrate at the start of every Sabbath.

Muslims too consider Jerusalem a holy site, and the heights Temple Mount, once the site of the Temple, now hosts both the al-Aqsa Mosque and the golden, gleaming Dome of the Rock shrine.

Father Macora said that in his time in the Holy Land, he has witnessed “quite a number of stories” of spiritual enrichment or transformation among Christian pilgrims. People decide to go to confession for the first time in decades because of a visit to the Holy Sepulchre.

“Once I was asked by a friend to guide a woman at the Holy Sepulchre. I don’t think she was practicing her faith, but after she came out of the tomb she was weeping. So she was hit by the experience,” he continued.

Owusu said the Holy Land has played a large role in the Christian imagination “since time immemorial.”

“Believers have always wanted to go back to their roots, to see the places where our salvation history took place. For example, St. Francis of Assisi was so eager to go and see where Jesus was born, where he was crucified, and where he rose again.”

A Holy Land pilgrimage “really helps Christians in their belief, it ignites their faith and helps us to understand the Scripture in a different way.”

Macora has seen pilgrims weeping at the altar in the quiet Basilica of Agony, near the Garden of Gethsemane, the site where Jesus prayed before Judas handed him over to be arrested.

The Franciscan priest, an American who grew up in a military family, has served in the Holy Land for more than 20 years. Among his current roles is guardian of the Flagellation Monastery in Jerusalem.

Meeting local people is an important part of the experience, he commented, as they are “definitely part of the enduring fascination of the Holy Land.” Some people, such as the region’s shepherds, maintain cultural practices similar to those of biblical times. The guides who accompany visitors and pilgrims are very important, serving as “an ambassador of his or her people.”

He also cautioned that the enduring problems and recent history of the Holy Land, including the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, are something that first-time pilgrims can misunderstand.

“I think that they have to understand how complex the Holy Land is,” said Macora. “I think that they need to hear both sides of the story. There is a conflict going on and there are all kinds of sharp rivalries, even between Christians themselves.”

Israel is about 75 percent Jewish. Its Palestinian population, largely resident in the West Bank and the Gaza strip, is about 18 percent Muslim and two percent Christian, with both Christians and Muslims tending to identify as Palestinian Arab. The Christian population has largely declined due to emigration. Only about 16,000 of the 870,000 residents of Jerusalem are Christian, a significant drop in recent decades, CNEWA reports.

Owusu said there is more to the region than many visitors expect. While people hear about the Holy Land through news media, which often tell stories of violence and conflict, he stressed the importance of “those stories we don’t hear: the day-to-day experiences that go on there among these people, where Christians and Muslims live together in the same place, where Jews and Muslims live together in a particular place.”

“Those things never come on the news,” he said. “These are the things that really make the place real. Not occasional crisis, but the day-to-day life that really goes on. That is what people would really like to know.”

“It is a place where life continues,” he said. “People should not be limited to the bad news, but they should look beyond that and be hopeful.”

However, Macora said it is difficult to make deep contact with local people.

“It takes time to understand certain things and this is not easily achieved,” he said. “For someone coming to the Holy Land for the first time, there is a lot of information, almost too much, to process on the first pilgrimage.”

For Owusu, the Holy Land should never be “a museum where you go and only see places.”

“The people are formed in Mother Church, especially the Christians in the Holy Land,” he said. “The people reflect the reality and the history of what we know about the place, especially in connecting it to the Scriptures.”

While Americans can be skeptical of visiting the region, Owusu said locals receive Americans “with two arms open, as they would receive the Polish or the Italians.” Travel to the Holy Land is positive for both the pilgrim and the host.

“It brings them together,” said the priest. “Pilgrimage in this land is also a sign of hope. The people mostly depend on pilgrimages and they also see that, irrespective of whatever situation the American comes from, there is another brother on the other side of the world that may bring them hope.”

“What you bring back from the holy land is faith…. You take your faith there and you bring it back,” Owusu said.

Pilgrim groups hit a record high in January 2018, with 770 groups bringing 26,000 people, the Custody of the Holy Land-sponsored Christian Information Center said in February. In January 2017 only 529 groups visited and a year prior only 390 did.

Israeli government statistics indicate over half of 2017 tourists were Christian and one-quarter were coming on pilgrimage, with over 40 percent having previously visited Israel. The number of Chinese, Russian and Eastern European pilgrims were on the rise, the Jerusalem Post reported in February.

Israeli tourism minister Yariv Levin credited the increase in tourism to his office’s changes, including an improved visa process.

While travel costs and can be a barrier for a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, Owusu said it is possible with some financial preparation.

“It’s a life experience,” he said. Those with a desire to go could afford it by saving about a thousand dollars a year for several years, he estimated.

Those who want to go on a pilgrimage should contact the Franciscans who work there, he suggested.

“We’ve been doing this since time immemorial,” said Owusu.

The Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America has information on pilgrimages at the website holylandpilgrimages.org.

 


          Indonesia hingga Suriah, Negara-Negara Ini Larang Hizbut Tahrir      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Pemerintah RI, pada 19 Juli 2017, berdasarkan Surat Keputusan Menteri Hukum dan HAM Nomor AHU-30.AH.01.08 tahun 2017 yang didasarkan pada Peraturan Pemerintah Pengganti Undang-undang (Perppu) Nomor 2 Tahun 2017 tentang Organisasi Kemasyarakatan, secara resmi telah membubarkan Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia.

Pembubaran HTI dilandasi atas ideologi yang mereka bawa -- pendirian negara syariah-- dinilai tidak sesuai dengan amanat Pancasila dan UUD 1945.

"Aktivitas yang dilakukan HTI nyata-nyata telah menimbulkan benturan di tengah masyarakat yang pada gilirannya mengancam keamanan dan ketertiban di tengah masyarakat serta membahayakan keutuhan NKRI," kata Menko Polhukam Wiranto tahun lalu.

Indonesia bukan satu-satunya negara yang melarang aktivitas Hizbut Tahrir (HT). Organisasi yang berdiri di Yerusalem pada 1953 itu juga dilarang di sejumlah negara dunia.

Hizbut Tahrir, yang didirikan oleh seorang cendekiawan bernama Taiquddin al Nabhani, dilarang atas sejumlah alasan kontroversial, mulai dari kudeta hingga terorisme.

Berikut sejumlah negara di dunia yang telah menetapkan pelarangan terhadap Hizbut Tahrir, seperti yang dirangkum oleh Liputan6.com dari Counterextremism.com:

  1. Bangladesh
  2. China
  3. Indonesia
  4. Mesir
  5. Jerman
  6. Yordania
  7. Kazakhstan
  8. Kirgiztan
  9. Lebanon
  10. Pakistan
  11. Rusia
  12. Arab Saudi
  13. Tajikistan
  14. Turki
  15. Libya
  16. Suriah 

Berikut sejumlah penjelasan mengapa HT dilarang di negara-negara tersebut, seperti Liputan6.com kutip dari berbagai sumber:

Uzbekistan

Organisasi dengan nama alias Party of Liberation atau Islamic Party of Liberation itu dilarang di Uzbekistan sejak tahun 1999, seperti dikutip dari globalsecurities.org. Alasannya karena Presiden Uzbekistan Islam Karimov menduga kuat organisasi itu sebagai dalang serangkaian serangan bom di Tashkent, Uzbekistan sepanjang tahun 1999.

Kirgiztan dan Tajikistan

Hizbut Tahrir cabang dua negara tersebut turut dijatuhi sanksi larangan beraktivitas. Menurut globalsecurities.org, larangan di dua negara itu disebabkan atas pengaruh pelarangan di Uzbekistan.

Larangan HT di Kirgiztan diterapkan pada tahun 2004 karena dinilai sebagai 'kelompok ekstrem yang signifikan'. Sementara di Tajikistan, penangkapan dan pemberian vonis penjara terhadap sejumlah anggota HT telah dilakukan sejak tahun 2005.

Mesir

Larangan HT di Mesir diberlakukan pasca peristiwa Takfir wal-Hijra (pengasingan dan pembuangan) pada 3 Juli 1977, menurut The Jamestown Foundation, lembaga kajian asal Amerika Serikat.

Anggota HT cabang Negeri Sinai itu diduga terlibat dalam peristiwa 1977 yang ditandai dengan penculikan mantan atase penting Mesir, Muhammad al-Dhahabi. Penculikan Dhahabi dilakukan untuk ditukar ganti dengan pembebasan sejumlah anggota HT yang ditahan pemerintah.

Libya

Di bawah rezim Moammar Khadafi, sejumlah anggota Hizbut Tahrir dibunuh atau ditangkap melalui sejumlah tindakan penegakan hukum yang bersifat ekstra-yudisial (dilakukan oleh aparat tanpa melalui alur sistem peradilan pidana konvensional), seperti yang dikutip dari Middle East Policy Journal VII.

Suriah

Pelarangan dan pembubaran yang bersifat ekstra-yudisial (dilakukan oleh aparat tanpa melalui alur sistem peradilan pidana konvensional) juga dilakukan di Suriah pasca negara pimpinan Presiden Bashar al-Assad itu dilanda perang saudara.

Menurut laporan HT, sekitar 1.200 anggotanya ditahan oleh pemerintah tanpa melalui proses hukum. Tindakan penangkapan yang dilakukan oleh pemerintah Suriah itu menuai perhatian organisasi keamnusiaan dan HAM Amnesty International pada tahun 2006.

Kazakhstan

Hizbut Tahrir dilarang pada tahun 2005, seperti yang dirujuk dari Committee for Religious Affairs of the Ministry of Culture and Sport Republik Kazakhstan. Larangan itu diterapkan oleh pemerintah karena HT diduga terlibat sebagai dalang sejumlah aktivitas terorisme di negara pecahan Uni Soviet itu.

China

Organisasi HT telah dilarang oleh pemerintah China, khususnya di Provinsi Xinjiang, wilayah yang dihuni oleh banyak etnis beragama Islam, seperti yang dilaporkan oleh kantor berita AFP. Bagi pemerintah China, HT dianggap sebagai penebar teror lain di Xinjiang.

Bangladesh

Pada tahun 2009, HT dilarang oleh pemerintah Bangladesh sebagai organisasi yang terlibat dalam aktivitas militan, seperti dikutip dari The Daily Star. Sejak saat itu, aparat penegak hukum kerap mengasosiasikan HT sebagai dalang peristiwa kontroversial, salah satunya seperti upaya kudeta 2011.

Jerman

Pada Januari 2003, Hizbut Tahrir dilarang beraktivitas di Jerman. Menurut Menteri Dalam Negeri Otto Schilly, HT dinilai melakukan penyebaran kekerasan dan kebencian terhadap kelompok semit (Yahudi).

Turki

Menurut Center for Policing Terorism, aktivitas HT dilarang di Turki. Meski begitu, organisasi itu kerap bergerak dalam kapasitas rahasia. Pada tahun 1967, pemimpin HT cabang Turki ditangkap aparat Negeri Ottoman ketika negara itu menerapkan larangannya.

Negara Lain

Sejumlah negara seperti Australia, Inggris, dan Denmark tidak melarang HT secara legal.

Namun ketiga negara tersebut menerapkan proscription (mengutuk) terhadap aktivitas terorisme yang kerap diduga kuat didalangi oleh HT, demikian seperti yang dikutip dari The Sydney Morning Herald.

Penahanan...

Pemimpin FPI Rizieq Shihab bersiap menjadi saksi ahli dalam sidang kasus penistaan agama di Auditorium Kementan, Jakarta, Selasa (28/2). Rizieq menjadi saksi ahli agama dengan terdakwa Basuki Tjahaja Purnama atau Ahok. (Liputan6.com/Raisan Al Farisi/Pool)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Sementara itu, belum lama ini, Rizieq Shihab ditahan polisi di Arab Saudi karena memasang bendera ISIS di kediamannya di Makkah.

Kementerian Luar Negeri RI pada 7 November 2018 buka suara soal kabar penahanan Rizieq Shihab di Arab Saudi yang mencuat pada awal pekan ini.

"Pada tanggal 5 November 2018 Kemlu RI menerima pengaduan dari sejumlah pihak mengenai penahanan seorang WNI a.n. Muhammad Rizieq Shihab oleh aparat keamanan Arab Saudi di Makkah."

"Guna mengklarifikasi kebenaran informasi tersebut, Kemlu RI telah meminta Pejabat Fungsi Konsuler KJRI Jeddah untuk melakukan penelusuran."

"Dari hasil penelusuran, diperoleh konfirmasi bahwa Muhammad Rizieq Shihab sedang dimintai keterangan oleh aparat keamanan Arab Saudi di Makkah, atas dasar laporan warga negara Saudi yang melihat bendera yang diduga mirip dengan bendera ISIS terpasang di depan rumah Muhammad Rizieq Shihab di Makkah."

"Menindaklanjuti konfirmasi ini, Pejabat Fungsi Kekonsuleran KJRI Jeddah telah memberikan pendampingan kekonsuleran kepada Muhammad Rizieq Shihab sebagaimana yang diberikan kepada semua WNI yang menghadapi masalah hukum di luar negeri."

"Tentunya hukum dan aturan setempat harus dihormati."

"Informasi terakhir yang diterima Muhammad Rizieq Shihab telah dizinkan oleh otoritas keamanan Saudi untuk kembali ke rumahnya di Makkah pada sekitar 20.00 tadi malam (6 November 2018)."

Bendera Hitam Bertendensi Gerakan Ekstremis

Sementara itu, menurut keterangan resmi dari KBRI Riyadh, dijelaskan bahwa "Pada tanggal 5 November 2018 sekitar pukul 08.00 waktu setempat, tempat tinggal Muhammad Rizieq Shihab didatangi oleh pihak kepolisian Makkah karena diketahui adanya pemasangan bendera hitam yang mengarah pada ciri-ciri gerakan ekstremis pada dinding bagian belakang rumah Muhammad Rizieq Shihab."

KBRI Riyadh juga menjelaskan bahwa, "Arab Saudi sangat melarang keras segala bentuk jargon, label, atribut dan lambang apapun yang berbau terorisme seperti ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Al-Jama’ah al-Islamiyyah dan segala kegiatan yang berbau terorisme dan ekstremisme."

Namun, baik Kemlu RI dan KBRI tak memberikan deskripsi yang merinci mengenai bendera yang dimaksud.

Kendati demikian, menurut sejumlah kelompok, bendera serupa kerap disebut sebagai 'bendera tauhid' --dengan latar belakang hitam bertuliskan enkripsi tauhid dalam Bahasa Arab berwarna putih.

Tapi di sisi lain, baik, HT, ISIS, dan Al-Qaeda acap kali menggunakan bendera yang mirip pada berbagai kesempatan.

Sementara itu, diketahui pada Oktober 2018, ketika ramai pemberitaan soal kasus penampakan dan pembakaran 'bendera tauhid' pada Hari Santri Nasional di Garut, Rizieq sendiri pernah "meminta masyarakat memasang bendera dan panji-panji dengan tulisan kalimat tauhid di rumahnya."


          Why Is Benjamin Netanyahu Defending Mohammed bin Salman?      Cache   Translate Page      
By Richard Silverstein
Source
For the past month, while governments and media outlet around the world sounded a drumbeat of shock and dismay over the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, all that could be heard on the subject from Israel was the sound of crickets. Israeli columnist Ben Caspit said his country’s leadership was avoiding the subject “like the plague”.
It appears no Israeli politician wants to say anything for fear of offending that country’s latest Arab bromantic partner, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Bin Salman, according to many analysts, would have had to have ordered the murder of a figure as prominent as Khashoggi.
Then on Friday Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu finally gave his view on the Khashoggi case, saying it had to be “dealt with” but not at the cost of the stability of Saudi Arabia and the fight against Iran.
MBS: the linchpin of Trump deal
MBS, as he’s known, is the key Arab linchpin of the Trump-Netanyahu deal of the century, which is supposed to finally resolve the Israel-Palestine conflict. The details of the delayed proposal, which Trump and his Middle East appointees continue to promote, has been widely reported in various media outlets. Leaked parts of the deal, many analysts say, suggest it is highly favourable to Israeli interests and largely disregards Palestinian rights.
Despite the one-sided nature of the plan, MBS has dutifully attempted to sell it to the Palestinian leadership. In a command performance, in which the Saudi crown prince summoned Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to his royal palace, MBS told a reluctant Abbas that if he didn’t acquiesce, he should resign. The implication was that the Saudis would find another Palestinian leader who would agree to such a deal.
So far, Abbas has resisted this Saudi offer and not lost his head – or his job. Later, King Salman even reasserted the Saudi commitment to a deal which offered Palestinians a state within 1967 borders, which the new Trump plan eschewed.
A peace agreement that is favourable to the Israelis is something that comes along once in a lifetime. So, Netanyahu realises that stepping into the Khashoggi imbroglio is the last thing he wants to do. If there is even a slight chance the Saudi prince can come through, he doesn’t want to upset this apple cart.
Caspit’s Israeli government sources lay out further argument for laying low on this subject.
Gulf gravy train
There are also huge economic interests at stake. As a result of the warming of relations among Israel and the various Gulf states, Israeli military and surveillance firms have signed contracts worth billions. Planes filled with consultants, trainers, weapons and sophisticated surveillance gear make weekly trips between Tel Aviv and Gulf capitals.
Tens of Israelis are posted to these Gulf outposts to install and train their local clients in their use. The salaries they earn are highly lucrative compared to what they might earn in similar jobs at home. For the Israeli military-intelligence industry, this is a goose laying hundreds of golden eggs on a regular basis.
However, perhaps the most crucial mutual interest shared by Netanyahu and MBS is their hatred of Iran.
Palestinians prepare to set fire on an Israeli flag and portraits of Donald Trump and Mohammed bin Salman during a protest at the border fence with Israel, Gaza city, on 13 April 2018 (AF
Behind the scenes, Israel continues to side with Saudi Arabia. Iranian threat top our agenda, whereas Saudi Arabia’s internal affairs are less important and less interesting [to Israel] right now.” This view was echoed by Netanyahu on Friday, who explicitly stated that Khashoggi’s murder was less important than “blocking Iran”.
The rapprochement between Israel and Saudi Arabia that has gathered speed over the past few years is fuelled by the reginal rivalry between Iran and Saudi Arabia; and Israel’s hostility to the perceived Iranian encroachment on its territorial spheres of interest in Syria, Lebanon and Gaza.
The Erdogan factor
Israel’s proclivity to excuse the mayhem committed at the Saudi embassy in Istanbul is also fuelled by an intense, long-standing enmity toward Turkey’s Erdogan, which dates back to Israel’s slaughter of 10 Turkish citizens on the Mavi Marmara in 2010.
It took years for Israel to negotiate a resolution to this conflict in which it apologised for the deaths and paid families of the victims $20m. Though diplomatic relations were restored, the relationship has never been as close as it had been previously.
Netanyahu also wants to benefit from the rivalry between Turkey, which is ruled by the Islamist AKP Party, and the Saudis. Turkey supported the Muslim Brotherhood after the movement won democratic elections in Egypt. The Saudis despise the Brotherhood as a threat to their form of dynastic rule.
Erdogan is playing this scandal like a violin. He is doing so both to repair the international standing he lost when he crushed a coup and imposed draconian counter-measures which saw tens of thousands of Turks imprisoned and fired from their jobs. He is also drawing out the scandal in order to bring the Saudis down a peg in the regional power hierarchy.
Thus, Israel’s leader wants to do nothing to burnish Erdogan’s reputation in the midst of this contest between the two Sunni states.
An orchestrated campaign
There is also an underlying, unspoken realisation on the part of the Israelis that their Mossad runs its own assassination squads throughout the Middle East and beyond. It has killed not only Arab enemies and foreigners helping them, but it has also killed its own citizens.
Israel cannot afford to denounce any nation for killing its enemies for fear the world will only be reminded that it does the same. Not to mention, that some of these killing operations failed as spectacularly as the one that brought about Khashoggi’s murder.
Finally, though Israel refuses publicly to condemn the murder of the Saudi journalist, privately it’s engaged in an apologia for the Saudis’ murderous behaviour.
Other Middle East leaders have come to the crown prince’s defence. In recent days, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and Netanyahu have reached out to the Trump administration to express support for the crown prince, arguing that he is an important strategic partner in the region, said people familiar with the calls.
It appears highly likely that Netanyahu is defending MBS as part of an orchestrated campaign on the Saudi’s behalf. Such a move makes Israel a defender of an act of state-sponsored terror. But this shouldn’t be very surprising considering that Israel is one of the world’s foremost practitioners of the art.

2 Kings 19 (Listen)

Isaiah Reassures Hezekiah

19 As soon as King Hezekiah heard it, he tore his clothes and covered himself with sackcloth and went into the house of the LORD. And he sent Eliakim, who was over the household, and Shebna the secretary, and the senior priests, covered with sackcloth, to the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz. They said to him, “Thus says Hezekiah, This day is a day of distress, of rebuke, and of disgrace; children have come to the point of birth, and there is no strength to bring them forth. It may be that the LORD your God heard all the words of the Rabshakeh, whom his master the king of Assyria has sent to mock the living God, and will rebuke the words that the LORD your God has heard; therefore lift up your prayer for the remnant that is left.” When the servants of King Hezekiah came to Isaiah, Isaiah said to them, “Say to your master, ‘Thus says the LORD: Do not be afraid because of the words that you have heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have reviled me. Behold, I will put a spirit in him, so that he shall hear a rumor and return to his own land, and I will make him fall by the sword in his own land.’”

Sennacherib Defies the Lord

The Rabshakeh returned, and found the king of Assyria fighting against Libnah, for he heard that the king had left Lachish. Now the king heard concerning Tirhakah king of Cush, “Behold, he has set out to fight against you.” So he sent messengers again to Hezekiah, saying, 10 “Thus shall you speak to Hezekiah king of Judah: ‘Do not let your God in whom you trust deceive you by promising that Jerusalem will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria. 11 Behold, you have heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands, devoting them to destruction. And shall you be delivered? 12 Have the gods of the nations delivered them, the nations that my fathers destroyed, Gozan, Haran, Rezeph, and the people of Eden who were in Telassar? 13 Where is the king of Hamath, the king of Arpad, the king of the city of Sepharvaim, the king of Hena, or the king of Ivvah?’”

Hezekiah's Prayer

14 Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers and read it; and Hezekiah went up to the house of the LORD and spread it before the LORD. 15 And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD and said: “O LORD, the God of Israel, enthroned above the cherubim, you are the God, you alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; you have made heaven and earth. 16 Incline your ear, O LORD, and hear; open your eyes, O LORD, and see; and hear the words of Sennacherib, which he has sent to mock the living God. 17 Truly, O LORD, the kings of Assyria have laid waste the nations and their lands 18 and have cast their gods into the fire, for they were not gods, but the work of men's hands, wood and stone. Therefore they were destroyed. 19 So now, O LORD our God, save us, please, from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you, O LORD, are God alone.”

Isaiah Prophesies Sennacherib's Fall

20 Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, “Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel: Your prayer to me about Sennacherib king of Assyria I have heard. 21 This is the word that the LORD has spoken concerning him:

  “She despises you, she scorns you—
    the virgin daughter of Zion;
  she wags her head behind you—
    the daughter of Jerusalem.
22   “Whom have you mocked and reviled?
    Against whom have you raised your voice
  and lifted your eyes to the heights?
    Against the Holy One of Israel!
23   By your messengers you have mocked the Lord,
    and you have said, ‘With my many chariots
  I have gone up the heights of the mountains,
    to the far recesses of Lebanon;
  I felled its tallest cedars,
    its choicest cypresses;
  I entered its farthest lodging place,
    its most fruitful forest.
24   I dug wells
    and drank foreign waters,
  and I dried up with the sole of my foot
    all the streams of Egypt.’
25   “Have you not heard
    that I determined it long ago?
  I planned from days of old
    what now I bring to pass,
  that you should turn fortified cities
    into heaps of ruins,
26   while their inhabitants, shorn of strength,
    are dismayed and confounded,
  and have become like plants of the field
    and like tender grass,
  like grass on the housetops,
    blighted before it is grown.
27   “But I know your sitting down
    and your going out and coming in,
    and your raging against me.
28   Because you have raged against me
    and your complacency has come into my ears,
  I will put my hook in your nose
    and my bit in your mouth,
  and I will turn you back on the way
    by which you came.

29 “And this shall be the sign for you: this year eat what grows of itself, and in the second year what springs of the same. Then in the third year sow and reap and plant vineyards, and eat their fruit. 30 And the surviving remnant of the house of Judah shall again take root downward and bear fruit upward. 31 For out of Jerusalem shall go a remnant, and out of Mount Zion a band of survivors. The zeal of the LORD will do this.

32 “Therefore thus says the LORD concerning the king of Assyria: He shall not come into this city or shoot an arrow there, or come before it with a shield or cast up a siege mound against it. 33 By the way that he came, by the same he shall return, and he shall not come into this city, declares the LORD. 34 For I will defend this city to save it, for my own sake and for the sake of my servant David.”

35 And that night the angel of the LORD went out and struck down 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians. And when people arose early in the morning, behold, these were all dead bodies. 36 Then Sennacherib king of Assyria departed and went home and lived at Nineveh. 37 And as he was worshiping in the house of Nisroch his god, Adrammelech and Sharezer, his sons, struck him down with the sword and escaped into the land of Ararat. And Esarhaddon his son reigned in his place.

Hebrews 1 (Listen)

The Supremacy of God's Son

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

For to which of the angels did God ever say,

  “You are my Son,
    today I have begotten you”?

Or again,

  “I will be to him a father,
    and he shall be to me a son”?

And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,

  “Let all God's angels worship him.”

Of the angels he says,

  “He makes his angels winds,
    and his ministers a flame of fire.”

But of the Son he says,

  “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,
    the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.
  You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
  therefore God, your God, has anointed you
    with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”

10 And,

  “You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,
    and the heavens are the work of your hands;

    they will all wear out like a garment,
12   like a robe you will roll them up,

  But you are the same,

13 And to which of the angels has he ever said,

  “Sit at my right hand
    until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?

14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?

Your Name, O Lord, Endures Forever

135   Praise the LORD!
  Praise the name of the LORD,
    give praise, O servants of the LORD,
  who stand in the house of the LORD,
    in the courts of the house of our God!
  Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good;
    sing to his name, for it is pleasant!1
  For the LORD has chosen Jacob for himself,
    Israel as his own possession.
  For I know that the LORD is great,
    and that our Lord is above all gods.
  Whatever the LORD pleases, he does,
    in heaven and on earth,
    in the seas and all deeps.
  He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth,
    who makes lightnings for the rain
    and brings forth the wind from his storehouses.
  He it was who struck down the firstborn of Egypt,
    both of man and of beast;
  who in your midst, O Egypt,
    sent signs and wonders
    against Pharaoh and all his servants;
10   who struck down many nations
    and killed mighty kings,
11   Sihon, king of the Amorites,
    and Og, king of Bashan,
    and all the kingdoms of Canaan,
12   and gave their land as a heritage,
    a heritage to his people Israel.
13   Your name, O LORD, endures forever,
    your renown,2 O LORD, throughout all ages.
14   For the LORD will vindicate his people
    and have compassion on his servants.
15   The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
    the work of human hands.
16   They have mouths, but do not speak;
    they have eyes, but do not see;
17   they have ears, but do not hear,
    nor is there any breath in their mouths.
18   Those who make them become like them,
    so do all who trust in them.
19   O house of Israel, bless the LORD!
    O house of Aaron, bless the LORD!
20   O house of Levi, bless the LORD!
    You who fear the LORD, bless the LORD!
21   Blessed be the LORD from Zion,
    he who dwells in Jerusalem!
  Praise the LORD!

His Steadfast Love Endures Forever

136   Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.
  Give thanks to the God of gods,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.
  Give thanks to the Lord of lords,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
  to him who alone does great wonders,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
  to him who by understanding made the heavens,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
  to him who spread out the earth above the waters,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
  to him who made the great lights,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
  the sun to rule over the day,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
  the moon and stars to rule over the night,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
10   to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
11   and brought Israel out from among them,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
12   with a strong hand and an outstretched arm,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
13   to him who divided the Red Sea in two,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
14   and made Israel pass through the midst of it,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
15   but overthrew3 Pharaoh and his host in the Red Sea,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
16   to him who led his people through the wilderness,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
17   to him who struck down great kings,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
18   and killed mighty kings,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
19   Sihon, king of the Amorites,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
20   and Og, king of Bashan,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
21   and gave their land as a heritage,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
22   a heritage to Israel his servant,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.
23   It is he who remembered us in our low estate,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
24   and rescued us from our foes,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
25   he who gives food to all flesh,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.
26   Give thanks to the God of heaven,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.

The Lord's Indictment of Israel and Judah

  The LORD has an indictment against Judah
    and will punish Jacob according to his ways;

  In the womb he took his brother by the heel,
    and in his manhood he strove with God.

    they shall surely come to nothing:
  in Gilgal they sacrifice bulls;

    and for a wife he guarded sheep.
13   By a prophet the LORD brought Israel up from Egypt,
    and by a prophet he was guarded.
14   Ephraim has given bitter provocation;
    so his Lord will leave his bloodguilt on him
    and will repay him for his disgraceful deeds.

          Indonesia hingga Suriah, Negara-Negara Ini Larang Hizbut Tahrir      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Pemerintah RI, pada 19 Juli 2017, berdasarkan Surat Keputusan Menteri Hukum dan HAM Nomor AHU-30.AH.01.08 tahun 2017 yang didasarkan pada Peraturan Pemerintah Pengganti Undang-undang (Perppu) Nomor 2 Tahun 2017 tentang Organisasi Kemasyarakatan, secara resmi telah membubarkan Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia.

Pembubaran HTI dilandasi atas ideologi yang mereka bawa -- pendirian negara syariah-- dinilai tidak sesuai dengan amanat Pancasila dan UUD 1945.

"Aktivitas yang dilakukan HTI nyata-nyata telah menimbulkan benturan di tengah masyarakat yang pada gilirannya mengancam keamanan dan ketertiban di tengah masyarakat serta membahayakan keutuhan NKRI," kata Menko Polhukam Wiranto tahun lalu.

Indonesia bukan satu-satunya negara yang melarang aktivitas Hizbut Tahrir (HT). Organisasi yang berdiri di Yerusalem pada 1953 itu juga dilarang di sejumlah negara dunia.

Hizbut Tahrir, yang didirikan oleh seorang cendekiawan bernama Taiquddin al Nabhani, dilarang atas sejumlah alasan kontroversial, mulai dari kudeta hingga terorisme.

Berikut sejumlah negara di dunia yang telah menetapkan pelarangan terhadap Hizbut Tahrir, seperti yang dirangkum oleh Liputan6.com dari Counterextremism.com:

  1. Bangladesh
  2. China
  3. Indonesia
  4. Mesir
  5. Jerman
  6. Yordania
  7. Kazakhstan
  8. Kirgiztan
  9. Lebanon
  10. Pakistan
  11. Rusia
  12. Arab Saudi
  13. Tajikistan
  14. Turki
  15. Libya
  16. Suriah 

Berikut sejumlah penjelasan mengapa HT dilarang di negara-negara tersebut, seperti Liputan6.com kutip dari berbagai sumber:

Uzbekistan

Organisasi dengan nama alias Party of Liberation atau Islamic Party of Liberation itu dilarang di Uzbekistan sejak tahun 1999, seperti dikutip dari globalsecurities.org. Alasannya karena Presiden Uzbekistan Islam Karimov menduga kuat organisasi itu sebagai dalang serangkaian serangan bom di Tashkent, Uzbekistan sepanjang tahun 1999.

Kirgiztan dan Tajikistan

Hizbut Tahrir cabang dua negara tersebut turut dijatuhi sanksi larangan beraktivitas. Menurut globalsecurities.org, larangan di dua negara itu disebabkan atas pengaruh pelarangan di Uzbekistan.

Larangan HT di Kirgiztan diterapkan pada tahun 2004 karena dinilai sebagai 'kelompok ekstrem yang signifikan'. Sementara di Tajikistan, penangkapan dan pemberian vonis penjara terhadap sejumlah anggota HT telah dilakukan sejak tahun 2005.

Mesir

Larangan HT di Mesir diberlakukan pasca peristiwa Takfir wal-Hijra (pengasingan dan pembuangan) pada 3 Juli 1977, menurut The Jamestown Foundation, lembaga kajian asal Amerika Serikat.

Anggota HT cabang Negeri Sinai itu diduga terlibat dalam peristiwa 1977 yang ditandai dengan penculikan mantan atase penting Mesir, Muhammad al-Dhahabi. Penculikan Dhahabi dilakukan untuk ditukar ganti dengan pembebasan sejumlah anggota HT yang ditahan pemerintah.

Libya

Di bawah rezim Moammar Khadafi, sejumlah anggota Hizbut Tahrir dibunuh atau ditangkap melalui sejumlah tindakan penegakan hukum yang bersifat ekstra-yudisial (dilakukan oleh aparat tanpa melalui alur sistem peradilan pidana konvensional), seperti yang dikutip dari Middle East Policy Journal VII.

Suriah

Pelarangan dan pembubaran yang bersifat ekstra-yudisial (dilakukan oleh aparat tanpa melalui alur sistem peradilan pidana konvensional) juga dilakukan di Suriah pasca negara pimpinan Presiden Bashar al-Assad itu dilanda perang saudara.

Menurut laporan HT, sekitar 1.200 anggotanya ditahan oleh pemerintah tanpa melalui proses hukum. Tindakan penangkapan yang dilakukan oleh pemerintah Suriah itu menuai perhatian organisasi keamnusiaan dan HAM Amnesty International pada tahun 2006.

Kazakhstan

Hizbut Tahrir dilarang pada tahun 2005, seperti yang dirujuk dari Committee for Religious Affairs of the Ministry of Culture and Sport Republik Kazakhstan. Larangan itu diterapkan oleh pemerintah karena HT diduga terlibat sebagai dalang sejumlah aktivitas terorisme di negara pecahan Uni Soviet itu.

China

Organisasi HT telah dilarang oleh pemerintah China, khususnya di Provinsi Xinjiang, wilayah yang dihuni oleh banyak etnis beragama Islam, seperti yang dilaporkan oleh kantor berita AFP. Bagi pemerintah China, HT dianggap sebagai penebar teror lain di Xinjiang.

Bangladesh

Pada tahun 2009, HT dilarang oleh pemerintah Bangladesh sebagai organisasi yang terlibat dalam aktivitas militan, seperti dikutip dari The Daily Star. Sejak saat itu, aparat penegak hukum kerap mengasosiasikan HT sebagai dalang peristiwa kontroversial, salah satunya seperti upaya kudeta 2011.

Jerman

Pada Januari 2003, Hizbut Tahrir dilarang beraktivitas di Jerman. Menurut Menteri Dalam Negeri Otto Schilly, HT dinilai melakukan penyebaran kekerasan dan kebencian terhadap kelompok semit (Yahudi).

Turki

Menurut Center for Policing Terorism, aktivitas HT dilarang di Turki. Meski begitu, organisasi itu kerap bergerak dalam kapasitas rahasia. Pada tahun 1967, pemimpin HT cabang Turki ditangkap aparat Negeri Ottoman ketika negara itu menerapkan larangannya.

Negara Lain

Sejumlah negara seperti Australia, Inggris, dan Denmark tidak melarang HT secara legal.

Namun ketiga negara tersebut menerapkan proscription (mengutuk) terhadap aktivitas terorisme yang kerap diduga kuat didalangi oleh HT, demikian seperti yang dikutip dari The Sydney Morning Herald.

Penahanan...

Pemimpin FPI Rizieq Shihab bersiap menjadi saksi ahli dalam sidang kasus penistaan agama di Auditorium Kementan, Jakarta, Selasa (28/2). Rizieq menjadi saksi ahli agama dengan terdakwa Basuki Tjahaja Purnama atau Ahok. (Liputan6.com/Raisan Al Farisi/Pool)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Sementara itu, belum lama ini, Rizieq Shihab ditahan polisi di Arab Saudi karena memasang bendera ISIS di kediamannya di Makkah.

Kementerian Luar Negeri RI pada 7 November 2018 buka suara soal kabar penahanan Rizieq Shihab di Arab Saudi yang mencuat pada awal pekan ini.

"Pada tanggal 5 November 2018 Kemlu RI menerima pengaduan dari sejumlah pihak mengenai penahanan seorang WNI a.n. Muhammad Rizieq Shihab oleh aparat keamanan Arab Saudi di Makkah."

"Guna mengklarifikasi kebenaran informasi tersebut, Kemlu RI telah meminta Pejabat Fungsi Konsuler KJRI Jeddah untuk melakukan penelusuran."

"Dari hasil penelusuran, diperoleh konfirmasi bahwa Muhammad Rizieq Shihab sedang dimintai keterangan oleh aparat keamanan Arab Saudi di Makkah, atas dasar laporan warga negara Saudi yang melihat bendera yang diduga mirip dengan bendera ISIS terpasang di depan rumah Muhammad Rizieq Shihab di Makkah."

"Menindaklanjuti konfirmasi ini, Pejabat Fungsi Kekonsuleran KJRI Jeddah telah memberikan pendampingan kekonsuleran kepada Muhammad Rizieq Shihab sebagaimana yang diberikan kepada semua WNI yang menghadapi masalah hukum di luar negeri."

"Tentunya hukum dan aturan setempat harus dihormati."

"Informasi terakhir yang diterima Muhammad Rizieq Shihab telah dizinkan oleh otoritas keamanan Saudi untuk kembali ke rumahnya di Makkah pada sekitar 20.00 tadi malam (6 November 2018)."

Bendera Hitam Bertendensi Gerakan Ekstremis

Sementara itu, menurut keterangan resmi dari KBRI Riyadh, dijelaskan bahwa "Pada tanggal 5 November 2018 sekitar pukul 08.00 waktu setempat, tempat tinggal Muhammad Rizieq Shihab didatangi oleh pihak kepolisian Makkah karena diketahui adanya pemasangan bendera hitam yang mengarah pada ciri-ciri gerakan ekstremis pada dinding bagian belakang rumah Muhammad Rizieq Shihab."

KBRI Riyadh juga menjelaskan bahwa, "Arab Saudi sangat melarang keras segala bentuk jargon, label, atribut dan lambang apapun yang berbau terorisme seperti ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Al-Jama’ah al-Islamiyyah dan segala kegiatan yang berbau terorisme dan ekstremisme."

Namun, baik Kemlu RI dan KBRI tak memberikan deskripsi yang merinci mengenai bendera yang dimaksud.

Kendati demikian, menurut sejumlah kelompok, bendera serupa kerap disebut sebagai 'bendera tauhid' --dengan latar belakang hitam bertuliskan enkripsi tauhid dalam Bahasa Arab berwarna putih.

Tapi di sisi lain, baik, HT, ISIS, dan Al-Qaeda acap kali menggunakan bendera yang mirip pada berbagai kesempatan.

Sementara itu, diketahui pada Oktober 2018, ketika ramai pemberitaan soal kasus penampakan dan pembakaran 'bendera tauhid' pada Hari Santri Nasional di Garut, Rizieq sendiri pernah "meminta masyarakat memasang bendera dan panji-panji dengan tulisan kalimat tauhid di rumahnya."

          Why the Holy Land is the 'fifth gospel' of Christianity      Cache   Translate Page      

Jerusalem, Nov 7, 2018 / 03:07 am (CNA).- Pilgrimage to the Holy Land is a powerful journey that can ignite Christian faith through seeing the places Jesus walked, worked miracles, died and rose from the dead.

The Franciscans who have served in the region say people should go.

“When you come here, you are very moved by the experience. It puts the gospel in perspective,” Father Athanasius Macora, O.F.M., told CNA from Jerusalem. “It’s a very powerful tool for evangelizing or re-evangelizing Catholics.”

Macora, an American, is a friar of the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land, which oversees the holy sites, helps support the Christian presence in the Holy Land, and welcomes Christian pilgrims from around the world.

Another Holy Land Franciscan, the Ghana-born Father Benjamin Owusu, O.F.M., reflected that the Christian experience of Jesus Christ preceded the written scriptures.

“Jesus said we should go and proclaim the gospel. And the gospel was proclaimed. People came to believe. But not in the written part of revelation… if the Word became flesh, it became flesh in a place. Where is that place? That is the Holy Land,” Owusu told CNA. “The Holy Land also testifies to the Word made Flesh, and that makes it more real to us.”

“By going to the Holy Land, the Holy Land becomes real in the life of Christians because of what it stands for,” he continued. “It is, as Pope Paul VI put it, the ‘fifth gospel’ which is not written on ink, but written on stones.”

Owusu works in the pilgrimage office of the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America, the Franciscan Custody’s outpost in Washington, D.C. The monastery itself hosts replicas of holy sites and holds various events to help link visitors to the land where Jesus Christ walked.

The Holy Land includes Israel, the Palestinian territories, and parts of Lebanon, Jordan and Syria.

The diversity of Christian sites there range from the churches and other places marking events like the Annunciation in Nazareth, the Nativity in Bethlehem, Jesus’ ministry along the Sea of Galilee, and of course Jerusalem, where the site of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection is now marked by the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

Added to these places are the living legacy of the Jewish people. The Wailing Wall, located at the base of the site of the Temple of King David, gathers thousands of Jews who pray and celebrate at the start of every Sabbath.

Muslims too consider Jerusalem a holy site, and the heights Temple Mount, once the site of the Temple, now hosts both the al-Aqsa Mosque and the golden, gleaming Dome of the Rock shrine.

Father Macora said that in his time in the Holy Land, he has witnessed “quite a number of stories” of spiritual enrichment or transformation among Christian pilgrims. People decide to go to confession for the first time in decades because of a visit to the Holy Sepulchre.

“Once I was asked by a friend to guide a woman at the Holy Sepulchre. I don’t think she was practicing her faith, but after she came out of the tomb she was weeping. So she was hit by the experience,” he continued.

Owusu said the Holy Land has played a large role in the Christian imagination “since time immemorial.”

“Believers have always wanted to go back to their roots, to see the places where our salvation history took place. For example, St. Francis of Assisi was so eager to go and see where Jesus was born, where he was crucified, and where he rose again.”

A Holy Land pilgrimage “really helps Christians in their belief, it ignites their faith and helps us to understand the Scripture in a different way.”

Macora has seen pilgrims weeping at the altar in the quiet Basilica of Agony, near the Garden of Gethsemane, the site where Jesus prayed before Judas handed him over to be arrested.

The Franciscan priest, an American who grew up in a military family, has served in the Holy Land for more than 20 years. Among his current roles is guardian of the Flagellation Monastery in Jerusalem.

Meeting local people is an important part of the experience, he commented, as they are “definitely part of the enduring fascination of the Holy Land.” Some people, such as the region’s shepherds, maintain cultural practices similar to those of biblical times. The guides who accompany visitors and pilgrims are very important, serving as “an ambassador of his or her people.”

He also cautioned that the enduring problems and recent history of the Holy Land, including the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, are something that first-time pilgrims can misunderstand.

“I think that they have to understand how complex the Holy Land is,” said Macora. “I think that they need to hear both sides of the story. There is a conflict going on and there are all kinds of sharp rivalries, even between Christians themselves.”

Israel is about 75 percent Jewish. Its Palestinian population, largely resident in the West Bank and the Gaza strip, is about 18 percent Muslim and two percent Christian, with both Christians and Muslims tending to identify as Palestinian Arab. The Christian population has largely declined due to emigration. Only about 16,000 of the 870,000 residents of Jerusalem are Christian, a significant drop in recent decades, CNEWA reports.

Owusu said there is more to the region than many visitors expect. While people hear about the Holy Land through news media, which often tell stories of violence and conflict, he stressed the importance of “those stories we don’t hear: the day-to-day experiences that go on there among these people, where Christians and Muslims live together in the same place, where Jews and Muslims live together in a particular place.”

“Those things never come on the news,” he said. “These are the things that really make the place real. Not occasional crisis, but the day-to-day life that really goes on. That is what people would really like to know.”

“It is a place where life continues,” he said. “People should not be limited to the bad news, but they should look beyond that and be hopeful.”

However, Macora said it is difficult to make deep contact with local people.

“It takes time to understand certain things and this is not easily achieved,” he said. “For someone coming to the Holy Land for the first time, there is a lot of information, almost too much, to process on the first pilgrimage.”

For Owusu, the Holy Land should never be “a museum where you go and only see places.”

“The people are formed in Mother Church, especially the Christians in the Holy Land,” he said. “The people reflect the reality and the history of what we know about the place, especially in connecting it to the Scriptures.”

While Americans can be skeptical of visiting the region, Owusu said locals receive Americans “with two arms open, as they would receive the Polish or the Italians.” Travel to the Holy Land is positive for both the pilgrim and the host.

“It brings them together,” said the priest. “Pilgrimage in this land is also a sign of hope. The people mostly depend on pilgrimages and they also see that, irrespective of whatever situation the American comes from, there is another brother on the other side of the world that may bring them hope.”

“What you bring back from the holy land is faith…. You take your faith there and you bring it back,” Owusu said.

Pilgrim groups hit a record high in January 2018, with 770 groups bringing 26,000 people, the Custody of the Holy Land-sponsored Christian Information Center said in February. In January 2017 only 529 groups visited and a year prior only 390 did.

Israeli government statistics indicate over half of 2017 tourists were Christian and one-quarter were coming on pilgrimage, with over 40 percent having previously visited Israel. The number of Chinese, Russian and Eastern European pilgrims were on the rise, the Jerusalem Post reported in February.

Israeli tourism minister Yariv Levin credited the increase in tourism to his office’s changes, including an improved visa process.

While travel costs and can be a barrier for a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, Owusu said it is possible with some financial preparation.

“It’s a life experience,” he said. Those with a desire to go could afford it by saving about a thousand dollars a year for several years, he estimated.

Those who want to go on a pilgrimage should contact the Franciscans who work there, he suggested.

“We’ve been doing this since time immemorial,” said Owusu.

The Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America has information on pilgrimages at the website holylandpilgrimages.org.

Future Market Insights delivers in-depth global market analysis and forecast in a new report titled "Medical Tourism Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2014 - 2020"

Valley Cottage, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/07/2018 -- Medical tourism is one of the most dynamically growing industries today. Considered to be the direct impact of globalisation of healthcare, medical tourism certainly exhibits strong growth potential globally. However, based on FMI's research, the market of medical tourism is expected to concentrate within most of the emerging economies of the world.

As developing nations are increasingly heading toward technological advancement and quality services in the medical and healthcare sector, the global medical tourism market is anticipated to witness robust growth over 2014-2020, predominantly in Asian countries.

The top treatments people travel abroad for, include cancer therapy, cardiovascular surgeries, orthopaedic treatments, dentistry, cosmetic surgeries, reproductive treatments, weight loss therapies, health screenings, and medical tests and scans. In severe cases, a sizeable patient population also seeks second opinion from specialist doctors out of their countries.

Key Drivers

High treatment costs and lengthy waiting times for medical procedures, being the two major factors in driving medical tourism, are also supported by easier and cheaper international travel. While the U.K.'s population prefers to travel abroad for bypassing long waits, patients from the U.S. travel outside for availing of treatments at cheaper costs.

Medical excellence along with international accreditation are the key factors fuelling a majority of international patient flow, eventually boosting international medical tourism. Currently, over 600 medical departments and hospitals all over the globe are accredited by the U.S. Joint Commission International (JCI). The number of accredited facilities is projected to increase almost by 20% each year. This is another important driver associated with the market growth.

Developing countries, with ever-evolving innovation and demonstrable achievements in medical research are estimated to accelerate the approaching medical tourist flow over the forecast period. Growing healthcare investments by various government and private sectors are also anticipated to further bolster the market growth.

Key Restraints

However, medical tourists are highly prone to a wide variety of health risks after they return. The conditions may include TB, paratyphoid, amoebic dysentery, deep vein thrombosis, and more; usually caused due to poor post-operative care and inadequate rest. This could affect the market to some extent.

Stringent documentation processes, issues related to visa approval, and limited insurance coverage are reportedly some of the most deterring factors for the global market.

Global Medical Tourism Market: Segmentation

FMI's research on the global medical tourism market offers a six-year forecast, segmenting the market on the basis of type of medical treatment and geography.

On the basis of the type of treatment, the market is segmented into cosmetic treatment, cardiovascular treatment, fertility treatment, dental treatment, orthopaedic treatment, and other general treatments.

On the basis of geography, the market is segmented into Asia pacific, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, North America, and South America.

Regional Outlook

Some of the prominent medical tourism centres across the globe include Thailand, India, South Korea, Taiwan, Costa Rica, Israel, Brazil, Turkey, the Philippines, Dubai, Singapore, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, Canada, and the U.S. According to Patients Beyond Borders, the global medical tourism market is currently growing at an impressive rate between 15% and 25%, and the flow of patients seeking cross-border treatment options will be the highest in Mexico. South and Southeast Asia are expected to dominate the global market in the near future.

Based on MTA's recently released Medical Tourism Index, there are 41 countries participating in the global medical tourism market. While India broadly secures #1, Israel ranks #1 in the quality of services and facilities.

India is renowned for specialist cardiac surgeries, while Singapore is a popular medical tourism destination owing to the expertise in complicated surgical procedures. Thailand has been a popular destination for medical tourism and millions of patients have travelled to Thailand since 2006. It is also the top cosmetic surgery centre globally.

Malaysia offers state-of-the-art medical infrastructure and treatments by highly skilled medical professionals, making it another sought after centre among medical tourists. With economically affordable treatment options and favourable government initiatives, Malaysia is anticipated to acquire one of the top market positions in the global medical tourism market, during the forecast period.

Key Players: Global Medical Tourism Market

Some of the top key players in the medical tourism industry include Asian Heart Institute (India), Apollo Hospitals (India), Prince Court Medical Centre (Malaysia), Gleneagles Hospital (Singapore), Min-Sheng General Hospital (Taiwan), Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital (Bangkok), Raffles Medical Group (Singapore), Clemenceau Medical Centre (Lebanon), Bangkok Hospital (Thailand), Bumrungrad International Hospital (Thailand), Fortis Healthcare Ltd.

In the years after the world war that ravaged the Ottoman Empire, Hassan left his native village in modern-day Lebanon to join his parents and siblings in the growing Midwest town of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. To do so, he had to sidestep the stringent immigration quotas newly implemented by the US. But years later, when the authorities learned that he entered and was living in the US illegally, he was threatened with deportation. Through Hassan's story, we'll learn about the experience of Arab migration to the United States and get to know the Syrian-American community that despite numbering in the hundreds of thousands by the 1920s, found itself repeatedly compelled to prove its worthiness to be included in a society where nativism was on the rise and being entitled to full citizenship often meant being considered white.

This episode is part of our investigative series Deporting Ottoman Americans.
