  • Analysis: Syria's al-Assad regime in trouble

    A series of victories by Islamist rebels against the Syrian regime is raising the prospect of a sea change in the momentum of a war in which the endurance of Bashar al-Assad has for years seemed to many as a given. Substantial territorial losses by the regime in the northern city of Jisr-el-Shugur and beyond, after the city of Idlib also fell to rebels, coupled with a relatively successful series of advances around the southwest of Damascus, are the result of new levels of cooperation among rebel groups that have spent the past years fighting each other for supremacy, to...

    Capitalism is a wonderful thing - except when it isn't. Several US businessmen - oil execs for instance - are eagerly waiting for the day when "normalizing" relations with Iran would lead to exploiting the business opportunities offered by the mullahs. The Hill: Leaders from the United States’ oil industry are traveling to Iran this week to discuss potential investment opportunities, Iran’s government said. The delegation of oil company leaders and investors are visiting Iran in anticipation of sanctions being loosened against Tehran, Iran’s state-owned Mehr News Agency reported Monday. “It is forecast that by the visit of [the] American delegation...

    The big threat to Hillary Clintons campaign isnt coming from a competitor. Its coming from an issue. And its coming now, long before the first primary. Will she be for or against giving President Barack Obama fast-track authority to negotiate trade deals? Fast track gives a president the power to make trade deals that cannot be amended by Congress. All Congress can do is accept or reject the agreement. Other countries, say fast-track supporters, wont negotiate with Washington if they know that Congress can amend any deal they agree to. Obamas problem is with Democrats. They are horrified by the...

    IN January, Tony Abbott seemed finished as Prime Minister. But how things have changed. Now the leader under pressure is Labors Bill Shorten. Just ask his smiling deputy, Tanya Plibersek. The mischief began last week, with Shorten away and Plibersek acting leader. First, Plibersek declared Labor should now force its politicians to vote for gay marriage, rather than allow a conscience vote. Many Labor MPs were outraged. MPs including devout Christians who would feel morally obliged to vote against party policy could be expelled under Labors rules. Labor could split. Shorten, on his return, quickly rejected Pliberseks bullying...

    When Christmas comes around, the Palestinian Authority looks for ways to incite Christian hatred of Jews worldwide. This year, the Jew-baiting has taken the form of a report by AFP regarding a Jewish town's opposition to Christmas trees and a book that calls Jesus "the first Palestinian martyr." While carrying the anti-Jewish Christmas tree story, world media neglected to note that the PA has been brutally and systematically driving out its Christian population - in Bethlehem and elsewhere - through torture and murder. Depicting Israel in the role of Dr. Seuss's "Grinch who stole Christmas," AFP sadly reported that "there...

    The Navy on Thursday began deploying warships to protect American commercial vessels passing through the Strait of Hormuz against any interference from Iran, which this week seized a cargo ship in the narrow waterway, though which about 20 percent of the worlds oil passes. Military officials said American warships and aircraft would maintain a presence in and around the strait and stay in contact with some American cargo ships traversing the sea lane, which separates the Persian Gulf from the Arabian Sea. But the officials drew a distinction between the new effort, which they characterized as accompanying commercial vessels, and...

    (Reuters) - Britain has informed a United Nations sanctions panel of an active Iranian nuclear procurement network linked to two blacklisted firms, according to a confidential report by the panel seen by Reuters. The existence of such a network could add to Western concerns over whether Tehran can be trusted to adhere to a nuclear deal due by June 30 in which it would agree to restrict sensitive nuclear work in exchange for sanctions relief. Talks between six major powers and Tehran are approaching the final stages after they hammered out a preliminary agreement on April 2, with Iran committing...

    Israel has returned 15 fishing boats seized in recent years off the Gaza coast, the Israel Defense Forces said late Wednesday. "The naval branch (navy) returned to Gaza 15 fishing boats which deviated from the Strip's permitted fishing zone and were seized over the years," the IDF statement read. The small vessels were dragged back to shore by a boat from the Gaza fishermen's union, an AFP photographer said. Because of security concerns, Israel bans fishing off the coast of Gaza beyond six nautical miles. Boats that exceed that limit are often fired on as a warning. Gazan fisherman, meanwhile,...

    Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem Character Studies From The Bible Saul New International Version (NIV) 24[a]After Saul returned from pursuing the Philistines, he was told, David is in the Desert of En Gedi. 2So Saul took three thousand able young men from all Israel and set out to look for David and his men near the Crags of the Wild Goats. 3He came to the sheep pens along the way; a cave was there, and Saul went in to relieve himself. David and his men were far back in the cave. 4The men said, This is the day...

    Roll Call ^ | 1:19 p.m | By Niels Lesniewski Posted at 1:19 p.m. on April 30, 2015 Niels Lesniewski
    Sen. Tom Cotton is insisting on simple majority votes on contentious amendments to legislation to provide congressional review of any final nuclear deal with Iran, apparently stymieing the possibility of moving forward, at least for now. The Arkansas Republican sought to line up a pair of amendments that supportive Democratic senators have said could cause them to remove support for the bill. One of those, sponsored by Cotton, would require Iran to allow inspectors full access to suspicious sites. The other, led by Florida Republican Marco Rubio, would require Tehran to recognize Israels right to exist. I think some of...

    The Hill ^ | April 29, 2015 | Jordain Carney
    Senators on Wednesday blocked a Republican push to tie Iran's support of terrorism to a final deal on the country's nuclear program. Senators voted 45-54 on the amendment from Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), which would have required President Obama to certify as part of a diplomatic deal that Iran hasn't carried out or directly supported an act of terror against the United States or a U.S. citizen. Republican Sens. Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Dan Coats (Ind.), Bob Corker (Tenn.), David Perdue (R-Ga.), Jeff Flake (Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Orrin Hatch (Utah) and John McCain (Ariz.) voted with Democrats against the amendment....

    Israelis appear to have been banned from buying tickets to see the Paris St. Germain soccer team in action, NRG reported Sunday night. The discovery was made by an Israeli couple planning a trip to Paris who wanted to attend a game and could not find a listing for Israeli orders on the group's ticket ordering web site. Guy Schleider of Ramat Gan perused the team's web site and went to the ticket buying area, where a drop-down list allowed residents of countries around the world to choose their home countries where tickets would be sent to. Included on...
  • Analysis: Whos afraid of absentee balloting in Israel?

    The Jerusalem Post ^ | 4/30/2015 | GIL HOFFMAN
    Dozens of countries around the world have allowed their citizens who happen to be abroad on Election Day to vote by absentee for decades. Practically speaking, absentee balloting is more necessary in a country like Israel, where elections are set three months in advance, than in the United States, where Americans know their presidential races will be held every four years in November. So why is absentee balloting for Israelis such a controversial issue, and why have governments promised it for years and never delivered? To answer the first question, it is important to understand the ethos of Israeli society....
