US diplomat Tom Malinowski
expelled from Bahrain

BBC News [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/8/2014 8:58:23 AM

A US diplomat has been ordered to leave Bahrain after meeting members of a leading Shia opposition group, say Bahrain officials. Tom Malinowski, US Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, went to Bahrain on Sunday. While there, he met members of al-Wefaq, a move which the foreign ministry of Bahrain says intervened in the country´s domestic affairs.[Snip] In meeting al-Wefaq, Mr Malinowski´s actions ran "counter to conventional diplomatic norms", the foreign ministry argued. The small island nation near the Arabian Peninsula has experienced frequent protests by Shias, who seek enhanced political rights.

Comments:
Damn straight it "intervened in the country´s domestic affairs." I doubt Melinowski met with opponents of the government of his own accord--Obama is meddling in another country´s affairs again.

Good for Bahrain. All of Obama´s diplomats should be expelled from their positions. None are qualified for anything above corruption, lying, and stealing.

The Prime Minister is to give intelligence agencies the power to vet airline flight lists in an effort to stop jihadis entering Britain. The US-style laws would compel all airlines flying into the country to provide much more information about passengers. [Snip] It follows a warning by the king of Saudi Arabia that terror groups could attack in the West within a month. He said: ‘If neglected I’m sure they [terrorists] will reach Europe in a month and America in another month. The evils of terrorism must be fought with force, reason and speed.’ At the centrepiece of Mr Cameron’s

U.S. President Barack Obama has been urged to take decisive action against the Islamic State amid concerns the terror group will target America. Obama was told by security experts that the country is facing a growing threat from militants, who have already taken control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq. He was advised that these fighters are now looking toward the U.S. or Western Europe as their next targets, where they would likely ´kill with abandon´. It comes as Texas senator Ted Cruz has claimed that America should deal with the threat of ISIS by bombing them ´back to

Ukrainian forces have withdrawn from the airport of the eastern city of Luhansk following clashes with pro-Russian rebels, military officials say. The announcement came after the two sides were engaged in all-night fighting. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has urged negotiators meeting in the Belarus capital, Minsk, to make an "immediate ceasefire" their priority. Some 2,600 people have died in eastern Ukraine since fighting began in April. The conflict broke out after Russia´s annexation of Ukraine´s southern Crimea peninsula in March.

The United States responded on Monday to news that Israel was planning to expand its state land and launch a new building project in the West Bank. The IDF on Sunday conferred the status of state land on 4,000 dunams in the Gush Etzion region, thus ending the civil administration’s investigation into the possibility that parcels were private Palestinian property. [Snip] "We have long made clear our opposition to continued settlement activity," a State Department official said. "This announcement, like every other settlement announcement Israel makes, planning step they approve and construction tender they issue, is counterproductive to Israel´s stated

There were conflicting reports Sunday evening on who, If anyone, was in control of the abandoned US embassy in Tripoli, Libya. According to reports, an Islamist militia group had taken over the building and a residential compound attached to it, and were “guarding” it to prevent other groups from invading it. The leader of the Dawn of Libya group, led by Moussa Abu-Zaqia, told reporters Sunday that the group has been occupying the embassy since last week, fending off attempted invasions by other militias. Abu-Zaqia produced several photos of what he said were militia members swimming in an algae-filled pool on

Over 4,500 people thronged the streets of London outside the Royal Courts of Justice today to protest about the rise of anti-Semitism on the streets. [Snip] “Yes, there is a rising tide of antisemitism and yes, it is terrifying, but it will only get worse unless we stand up for ourselves.

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

Spurred by President Obama’s climate action plan, the Department of Energy is pumping out new standards for refrigerators, dishwashers, air conditioners, ceiling fans, furnaces, boilers, water heaters, lamps and many more appliances. The administration says the standards will not only help the planet but also stimulate the economy by saving consumers money on their energy bills that they can spend elsewhere. After what

A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

ISIS is a cancer that must be stamped out, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wrote Saturday in an opinion piece for The New York Times. Kerry called the Islamist extremist group, known for beheadings, crucifixions and terror campaigns against religious and ethnic minorities, a "unifying threat to a broad array of countries" that needs to be confronted. His article appears in the aftermath of the political uproar that engulfed the White House this week after President Barack Obama said "we don´t have a strategy" on ISIS in Syria.

Just in case you thought that the Leader of the Free World was secretly harbouring a calculated, well-developed plan for bringing Isil under control and putting Russia’s imperial leader back in his box, Barack Obama banged that idea firmly on the head last week.

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August. U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended

It will take two decades to rebuild the thousands of houses destroyed during Israel’s assault on Gaza, according to a recent NGO report. At least 17,000 homes were obliterated or severely damaged during the conflict, with thousands more needing substantial repairs, according to an assessment by Shelter Cluster. More than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, were killed during the conflict. In addition 71 Israelis were killed – all but six of them soldiers. But the report on Gaza’s housing stock indicates inhabitants of the densely populated strip will face a severe infrastructural burden over the coming years.
