    he Federal Reserve’s aggressive tightening policy has led the US dollar to appreciate to multi-decade highs, squashing currencies around the world. Now, a United Nations agency is warning that its actions, along with those of other central banks, risk pushing the global economy into recession. What’s happening: In a new report, the United Nations Conference on Trade Development (UNCTAD) said that tightening monetary policy, meant to fight inflation, could inflict worse damage globally than the financial crisis in 2008 and the Covid-19 shock in 2020.
  • King Charles III will not attend U.N. climate change summit

    cbs ^ | OCTOBER 2, 2022
    The Palace's confirmation came after The Sunday Times reported that conservative Prime Minister Liz Truss objected to Charles attending the conference, known as COP27, when she met with the king last month at Buckingham Palace. The Times' report suggested that Truss' advice had influenced the king's plans. King Charles has attended the conference in the past. But a member of Truss' Cabinet said the government and palace were in agreement about the decision. Clarke also rejected suggestions that Truss didn't want Charles to attend the summit because she intends to water down Britain's climate goals. The government remains committed to...

    The U.S. Secret Service is charged with helping to protect foreign dignitaries taking part in the U.N. General Assembly high-level week in New York, but a decision by the agency to tweet out a photo featuring Iran’s U.S.-sanctioned president – whose attendance is highly controversial – attracted some criticism on Tuesday. “This week, we are all-hands-on-deck in NYC for the 77th UN General Assembly, working with our partners including [the NYPD], [State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service], [U.S. Coast Guard] and more,” the Secret Service tweeted to its 1.1 million followers. The post included four photos, one of which showed Iranian...

    President Joe Biden told the United Nations on Wednesday the Palestinians are “entitled” to their own state, a day after the U.S. State Department announced $64 million in aid to the U.N. agency for so-called Palestinian refugees. “We will continue to advocate for a lasting, negotiated peace between the Jewish and democratic state of Israel and the Palestinian people,” Biden said during his address at the U.N. General Assembly.

    The National Jewish Monthly, Volume 77, B'nai B'rith., 1962, p. 1 Review Of The Month Anti Semitism at UN Arab delegates spouted the most vicious kind of anti-Semitism ever heard in the halls of the United Nations during a debate on the Arab refugee issue in the General Assembly's special political committee. The worst statement was made by Ahmad Shukairy, of Saudi Arabia. He said, Argentina "should be saluted" because of its violently anti-Jewish youth organization, Tacuara, and added: "Tacuara has proclaimed a crusade... we propose that Tacuara be adopted by the United Nations." This was too much even for...

    People in New York questioned the effectiveness of the United Nations and the amount of money it spends as the General Assembly convenes for its 77th session. “I’m not a fan of the UN,” one man, Elias, told Fox News. “It’s a money-making corrupt organization.” Giovanni, an Italian who moved to Brooklyn in 1977, made similar remarks. “I’ll tell you the truth: I don’t know why they exist,” he said. […] While the U.N. has carried out 71 peacekeeping operations since 1947, in recent years, the international body has put its energy behind social justice issues. It hosts an annual...

    Windfall profits made by fossil fuel companies should be taxed to pay for climate damage, according to the UN Secretary General. Antonio Guterres told the General Assembly that polluters should pay for the impact of climate-related events. Having recently seen the devastating flooding in Pakistan for himself, Mr Guterres is now doubling down on the need for the rich world to urgently address the demands of the poor. And there's little doubt whom he believes is responsible for the world's climate emergency. "The fossil fuel industry is feasting on hundreds of billions of dollars in subsidies and windfall profits while...

    China attacked a report issued by the UN rights office (OHCHR) on alleged abuses in Xinjiang on Tuesday (Sep 13) and read out a statement backed by around 20 other countries criticising the UN body for releasing it and saying it had no right to do so. But initial support for Beijing's so-called joint statement at the UN Human Rights Council was thinner than some observers had expected - a fact that might embolden China's critics. The Aug 31 report, which China had asked the UN not to publish, stipulated that "serious human rights violations have been committed" and said...

In his speech following his inauguration, Kőrösi said the war in Ukraine must end as soon as possible and a ceasefire must be achieved. He thanked Hungary and the countries of the eastern European region for their support. Kőrösi said his work as president would be guided by...

    The UN’s IAEA has reported that Iran has 55.6 kilograms (122.6 pounds) of 60% enriched uranium. The body says this means Iran is able to produce up to 25 kg (55 lbs) of 90% enriched uranium, enough for a nuclear bomb. The real story could be even more concerning. Consider the hoary phrase, “There’s more than one way to skin a cat.” Similarly, there’s more than one way to make a nuclear bomb. The Union of Concerned Scientists has said that it might be possible to produce a fission-type nuclear weapon with as little as 15kg (33 lbs) of highly...

    Dr. Haissam Bou Said, the Permanent Representative of the International Human Rights Council to the United Nations, claimed in an August 2, 2022 interview on Al-Alam TV (Iran) that as was the case with Osama Bin Laden, there is no evidence that the United States actually killed Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri on July 31, 2022. He said that unless proven otherwise, this is a political trick being employed by the United States, and he suggested that it is an attempt by U.S. President Joe Biden to gain additional popularity.

    President Joe Biden hasn’t blocked Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi from entering the U.S. to speak at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meeting in New York City next month. Raisi will attend even after an Iranian military officer was charged this month with trying to assassinate former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. For weeks, Senate Republicans have been calling for President Joe Biden to block Raisi, who the U.S. sanctioned in 2019 for his role in executing children in 2018 and 2019. Earlier this month, The Department of Justice charged an Iranian military officer with trying to hire people...

    Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose relations with Israel are an unsteady whirligig, up, down, and around and where it will stop nobody knows – has now let loose with a barrage of criticism against Israel for its just-completed Operation Breaking Dawn. This comes after many months when Erdogan had been reaching out to Jerusalem, in the hope both of establishing an agreement with the Jewish state on gas fields and maritime economic zones in the eastern Mediterranean, and on promoting Turkey as a way-station for Israeli natural gas being sent to Europe. During that honeymoon, Erdogan hosted Israeli President Isaac Herzog,...

    Iran’s attempt to control al-Qaeda may be one of the biggest strategic benefits the rogue state has ever enjoyed. And it could cost the United States dearly if Joe Biden is not careful. The death of al-Qaeda’s longtime leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, proves how dangerous it is to lead the world’s most notorious Islamist terrorist organization. Given the group’s international reach and the fact that it has survived nearly 30 years of conflict with America’s war machine, many observers have been surprised by the fact that al-Qaeda did not have a succession plan in place. This is especially odd considering how...

    The president has two faces. Here's one paragraph My support for Israel’s security is long-standing and unwavering—including its right to defend itself against attacks. Over these recent days, Israel has defended its people from indiscriminate rocket attacks launched by the terrorist group Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and the United States is proud of our support for Israel’s Iron-Dome, which intercepted hundreds of rockets and saved countless lives. I commend Prime Minister Yair Lapid and his government’s steady leadership throughout the crisis. Here's the next one The reports of civilian casualties in Gaza are a tragedy, whether by Israeli strikes against Islamic...

    “Please, turn the camera away, turn the camera upwards,” Mayadeen TV correspondent says after the rocket impacted in a Gaza neighborhood. During a live broadcast on Aug. 7, Lebanon’s Mayadeen TV caught a Palestinian Islamic Jihad rocket misfiring and coming down in a Gaza neighborhood. The correspondent can be heard telling the cameraman to avert the camera. The correspondent can be heard in the video, a translated version of which was posted by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) on Monday, stating that rockets are being launched toward the sea, “maybe towards the gas fields.” One of the rockets...

    In the first week in August, roads in southern Israel were closed, summer vacation activities for children were held close to bomb shelters, communities adjacent to the Gaza fence were under lockdown, and the train from Ashkelon to Netivot was suspended, following the arrest overnight on August 3, in Jenin, of the senior Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader in Samaria, Bassam al-Saadi, and his son in law. Al-Saadi was the main PIJ figure in the West Bank, in charge of relations with Iran, and in training PIJ recruits in acts of terrorism. Israel had learned of his part in planning upcoming...
