Ghanaian football fans
request asylum in Brazil

BBC News [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/11/2014 12:19:26 AM

Brazilian federal police say that some 200 Ghanaians have requested asylum after entering the country on tourist visas to watch the World Cup. The Ghanaians say they are Muslims fleeing inter-religious conflicts in their home country. They have filed their applications in the southern city of Caxias do Sul, in one of Brazil´s most prosperous areas. Another 1,000 Ghanaians are expected to request refugee status once the tournament is over, police said. The Brazilian authorities believe many of the Ghanaians are looking for the right to work legally in the country.

Comments:
Damn. Asylum is breaking out all over. Romas next? (They´re the aliens who teach their children the skills of pickpocketing from a very early age.)

Now is very definitely the time to finish that fence down south and start hiring way more border guards. That´s where the excess war equipment, like Humvees tanks, RPGs, body armor, etc., should go.

Two shot as gunfire rings out in
Ferguson on NINTH night of violence:
Gas mask-clad reporters look on as
cops fire tear gas at protesters armed*
Daily Mail [UK], by David Mccormack, Louise Boyle    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/19/2014 5:33:47 AM     Post Reply
Two people were shot during another night of violence in Ferguson as police used stun grenades and tear gas on protesters who hurled rocks and bottles and in some cases Molotov cocktails. The ninth night of violence since the shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown had started as an evening of peaceful protests. But the relatively peaceful protests eventually turned nasty on the streets of the St. Louis suburb after police in riot gear and gas masks formed a barricade and stood watch over the protesters for almost two hours. As officers sat with guns pointed atop armored vehicles, the

Who Put the Cement
into Hamas´ Hands?
Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Moshe Phillips, Benyamin Korn    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/19/2014 4:55:28 AM     Post Reply
Much has been said and written about the terror tunnels that Hamas built in Gaza. But too little has been said about who it was that put the cement into Hamas’ hands, thus making the construction of the tunnels possible in the first place. Until now. In a bombshell revelation, Dennis Ross, the senior Mideast policy adviser to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from 2009 to 2011, has admitted that it was he who was assigned the task of pressuring Israel to ease up on its military blockade of Gaza, in the events after Israel´s withdrawal from that region in 2005.

Israeli Official Denies Agreement
to Lift Gaza Blockade

Contrary to reports by the joint Palestinian delegation to Cairo, Israeli representatives have not left Egypt after agreeing to lift the blockade on Gaza, according to a senior Israeli official involved in the negotiations. Talks are still continuing over core issues, including if and how the Israeli blockade of the Hamas-controlled territory could be eased without compromising Israeli security, as a 24-hour extension of the temporary ceasefire agreed between the sides on Monday gets underway. The official--who spoke to Channel Two on condition of anonymity--said that no comprehensive agreement for a long-term truce had been made, and that the Israeli delegation had

Abbas: Hamas Coup Has ´Implications´

Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas commented on Monday evening for the first time about the Israel Security Agency’s (Shin Bet) revelation that it foiled a Hamas network´s plot to carry out a coup in Judea and Samaria. In a statement quoted on Channel 2 News, Abbas said that the implications of the revealed plot “will be serious for the Palestinian and regional situation, especially after Israeli officials published a list and pictures of confiscated weapons." Abbas stressed that the reports endanger the unity of the Palestinian people as its leadership tries to form a unity government. "We are living

   

 

  


 
Iraqi and Kurdish forces
retake Mosul dam
Telegraph [UK], by Ruth Sherlock, Carol Malouf*    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/18/2014 9:37:24 PM     Post Reply
Kurdish peshmerga forces backed by American fighter jets recaptured Iraq´s largest dam from the Islamic State on Monday, in what US President Barack Obama called a "major step forward" in the fight against the jihadists. Local forces seized control of the dam after dismantling a complicated network of land mines and booby traps lain by the Islamic State fighters, who had themselves fled the area earlier in the day after a sortie of airstrikes by American F-18 fighter jets. [Snip] If the dam is intentionally damaged, or even just not properly maintained, it could unleash a 60ft-high wall of water

Hundreds of Yazidi volunteers are being trained to handle weapons and fight to drive the Islamic State from their homes. Refugees who fled to Syria to escape the jihadists´ onslaught in neighbouring Iraq are joining military training camps run by Kurdish armed factions and forming a volunteer army against the jihadists. "Until now the Yazidis have always relied on someone else to protect them," said Rostan, 33, the Kurdish commander at the training camp, who refused to give his full name. "Now they are learning to protect themselves." Tens of thousands of Yazidis were forced to flee their homes when

While the US ´Reviews,´ EU
Calls for Disarming Hamas

Though the United States is still Israel´s "best friend," it is the European Union which called again today for ´´all terrorist groups in Gaza to disarm." The EU statement, issued in Brussels after a meeting of EU Foreign Ministers on Friday, declared that a "return to the status quo prior to the latest conflict is not an option." [Snip] On the other hand, the two top US Administration officials--President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry--have made it clear that disarming Gaza is not a priority. Asked if the Obama Administration endorses the Israeli demand to disarm Hamas, a

Maybe it was Wikileaks, the evil blond rat in South Park, that did it--but suddenly no one seems to care about the fate of Julian Assange. [Snip] Now though, no one seems to have been even slightly moved by Assange´s revelations over the weekend that two years stranded under effective house arrest in the Ecuadorian embassy in London has given him a heart condition and caused his skin to go even more vampire-pale. (Personally, I was more concerned about the fact that the Ecuadorians seem neither to have a sun roof nor a garden.) Nor is there much interest in

IDF Preparing for Possible
Resumption of Rocket Fire

The IDF is preparing for a possible resumption of rocket fire from Gaza on Monday evening, as the current five-day ceasefire is set to expire. The ceasefire is set to expire at midnight, but Hamas has been known to violate truces before they officially expire. The high alert for Monday evening comes in the wake of estimates of diplomatic sources in Jerusalem that the chances of a lasting ceasefire deal before Monday night are very slim. Earlier on Sunday, as truce talks in Cairo continued, Israel pre-empted any agreement by unilaterally offering Gaza a concession and lifting a ban on

Iraq crisis:

After all the controversy that has raged over our previous military campaign in Iraq, I can fully understand David Cameron´s hesitancy about getting involved in another costly intervention in the Middle East. [Snip] Add to this the memories of Mr Cameron´s humiliating Commons defeat this time last year when he wanted to bomb the Assad regime in Syria, and you can see why he is hoping that a combination of air strikes and surgical strikes by specialist teams of Special Forces will be enough to turn the tide against Islamic State fighters. I opposed last year´s proposed air strikes against

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease. [Snip] Observers might ask, “How can this be happening in an America that has elected a black president?” How can black kids still get killed by white cops and how

The amendments to the Egyptian 11-point truce proposal submitted by the Palestinian Arab delegation in Cairo was revealed on Monday morning, hours ahead of the end of the current ceasefire at midnight. [Snip] It also specifically calls for open trade between PA-controlled areas of Judea and Samaria with Gaza to include building materials, despite the use of cement to build terror tunnels. It is worth noting that Hamas has clarified that any truce deal would be seen only as an opportunity to plan the next terror war on Israel. The fourth clause adds to the call to have Israel coordinate

An autopsy conducted on Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old fatally shot by Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson last Saturday, shows that Brown was shot at least six times, twice in the head and all in the front of the body. The New York Times reported the results of a private autopsy conducted by Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired by the Brown family. Baden conducted the autopsy on Sunday, according to the Times. One bullet entered the top of Brown’s skull. Four struck him in the right arm. All bullets hit Brown in the front of the body, according to

President Barack Obama is getting off the island. In a rare move for him, the president planned a break in the middle of his Martha´s Vineyard vacation to return to Washington on Sunday night for meetings with Vice President Joe Biden and other advisers on the U.S. military campaign in Iraq and tensions between police and protesters in Ferguson, Missouri. The White House has been cagey about why the president needs to be back in Washington for those discussions. He´s received multiple briefings on both issues while on vacation. The White House had also already announced Obama´s plans to return

A ?friend who is conservative and ?Jewish asks a question: “Given ?Obama’s hostile treatment of ?Israel, isn’t it time for Jews to have their Ronald Reagan moment?” By that, he means when the Gipper said, “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The party left me.” Without doubt, the party under Barack Obama has left those Jews who view Israel’s security as threatened. Obama recently told a New York Times interviewer, “Because Israel is so capable militarily, I don’t worry about Israel’s survival.” That’s shocking, considering Iran’s threat to wipe Israel off the map once it gets nukes. And even as Obama spoke, the

Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a federal autopsy on the body of Michael Brown. Department of Justice spokesman Brian Fallon said it will be performed at the request of Brown´s family in addition to the one conducted by the state. Fallon also said that the Department of Justice will still take into account the state-performed autopsy during its civil rights investigation of Brown´s murder. Last week, Holder announced the federal probe following protests and outrage over the murder of the unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. Since the murder, the town has erupted into multiple police clashes. Despite a

Historians will have the rest of the century to unravel the mess that is the Barack Obama presidency. While they can explore these years of foreign policy disaster and domestic malaise at leisure, the rest of us have 29 more months to see just how awful things can get before he slides off to a lucrative retirement. But those who want to start the post-mortem on this historic presidency would do well to read Jackson Diehl’s most recent Washington Post column in which he identifies Obama’s hubris as the key element in his undoing.

McDonald’s has a problem. For the first time in 10 years, the company generated less revenue in a month than it did a year before, and it’s not a blip. The world’s biggest burger chain has been posting lagging results for some time, particularly in the United States. Blake Casper says he has a very good idea why. “Companies like Chipotle are doing a great job talking to people about healthy food, and they’re changing the dynamic of how people eat,” said Casper, who owns Tampa Bay’s largest McDonald’s franchise group with his sister Allison Casper Adams. “We embrace that

Montpelier, VT - Former Vermont U.S. Sen. James Jeffords, who in 2001 tipped control of the Senate when he quit the Republican Party to become an independent, died Monday. He was 80. Jeffords died in Washington, said Diane Derby, a former aide to Jeffords. He had been in declining health, she said. Jeffords had announced in 2005 that he would not seek a fourth term, citing his and his wife´s health problems. "I have had an enormously satisfying career, one that I would not have traded for any other," Jeffords said when he retired. "In no other job do you

Was Michael Brown a "gentle giant," a cigar thief, or a gang member? The black teenager had no adult criminal record, according to the St. Louis County prosecutor. Initial media profiles noted that family and friends described "Big Mike" as not "the type to fight" and "funny, silly, he would make you laugh." (Snip) Michael Brown had struggled in school, but had graduated Aug. 1 from Normandy High School, and had been staying at his grandmother´s apartment in Ferguson this summer. Family members said that hre planned to start this past week at Vatterott Educational Centers, a vocational technical college,

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on U.S. authorities on Monday to ensure the protection of the rights of protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, where there have been demonstrations and rioting over the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teen. "The Secretary-General calls on the authorities to ensure that the rights to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression are protected," U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters. "He calls on all to exercise restraint, for law enforcement officials to abide by U.S. and international standards in dealing with demonstrators," Dujarric said.

Ousted “Meet the Press” anchor David Gregory was paid $4 million to leave NBC and signed a contract not to speak out against the network, sources told Page Six. Gregory, 43, who moderated the show for six years, was unceremoniously dumped from the political program on Thursday after dismal ratings and months of speculation about his departure. He has been replaced by NBC White House correspondent Chuck Todd. A source said Gregory’s contract extended into next year, so NBC had to pay him for the rest of the term, plus an extra fee to ensure his silence. In return, he was asked to sign
