EUワクチン・カード(パスポート)をコロナ直前に欧州委員会が企画立案済み 2020年から啓蒙活動開始

2019年に新型コロナが広まり始める数ヶ月前に、EC-WHOの会合が開かれており、その時点で、ワクチン強制接種を義務づける道筋が出来上がっていた。

2022年に公式に「EUワクチン・カード(またはパスポート)」の導入を提案することになっており、2020年から22年までは大衆を啓蒙する期間として設定されている。(下記リンク「ロードマップ」を参照)

今は米欧の技術協力で立ち上げられた武漢感染症研究所から発生したとされる新型コロナが世界中で猛威を振るっており(ただの風邪に思えますけど・苦笑)、下々の大衆である我々は、為政者によって啓蒙されているわけ。

全世界でワクチン接種が義務化されたら、米欧の製薬会社は巨額の利益を上げることができる。ワクチン開発に巨額投資しているビル・ゲイツも同様。関連記事23

ロックダウン解除後、コロナ感染者の年齢が65→33歳に低下 米国、イスラエル

米国では、3月時点では感染者の年齢層の中央値は65歳だったのに、今は40前後まで低下しており、(中央値が)33歳になった地域もある。規制解除後に若者が「自分は安全だ」と思って動き回りすぎたためではないかと推測されている。

・・・感染しても無症状の人が大半なのに、あと1年くらいコロナ規制を続けるつもりでしょうか?



In Israel, according to Sheba Medical Center’s Dr. Eyal Zimlichman, the average age of people being infected is around 40.

As data on this renewed wave of coronavirus is starting to be analyzed, it appears that the average ages of people being infected in Israel and around the world are slightly younger than they were in the spring. Experts explain that this is likely because young people are more social and less likely to adhere to recommendations and also because more testing is being carried out.

In Israel, according to Sheba Medical Center’s Dr. Eyal Zimlichman, the average age of people being infected is now around 40.

This trend can also be seen in the United States, as noted by scientists at the World Health Organization. Recent data from Florida, Texas and Arizona – states that continue to have high rates of infection – indicate a sharp rise in patients aged 40 and younger.

In Florida, specifically, the median age for coronavirus patients dropped from 65 at the beginning of March to 36 last week, according to the Florida Department of Health. In South Florida’s Broward County, the median age of infection was even younger, at 33, the Sun Sentinel reported. But it was higher in Miami-Dade (41) and Palm Beach (40).

However, the virus has not changed, scientists told The Jerusalem Post. Rather, the behavior of young people has shifted as restrictions were lifted, and they are putting themselves and the rest of the public at risk.

“The young people are not taking precautions,” said Dr. Rivka Abulafia-Lapid, a Hebrew University of Jerusalem expert in microbiology, immunology and viruses. “They are not wearing masks or [being] careful about hygiene and social distancing – and this virus is very contagious.”

She said she sees young people in restaurants, cafes and clubs pretending as if the virus has gone away.

“These young people think they are not going to get infected or they will not be very sick,” Abulafia-Lapid continued. In contrast, “older people wear their masks, keep distance and wash their hands” because they understand that they are most at risk.

Another reason for the increase in young patients, at least in Israel, is that the country is doing more testing, she said.

When Health Minister Yuli Edelstein took office, he changed Israel’s testing policy, opening up the possibility of getting screened to all who believe they may have been in contact with a sick person. As such, testing has gone from fewer than 10,000 people per day to an average of 17,000 per day.

But Cyrille Cohen, head of the immunotherapy laboratory at Bar-Ilan University, said the challenge with younger people getting sick is that they can spread the virus to older adults.

For example, Galia Barkai, head of Sheba Medical Center’s telemedicine program, told the Post the hospital’s coronavirus ward is starting to see more patients in recent weeks, and their ages are starting to rise.

Cohen said it is likely that within a short time, “unless older people stay secluded, I don’t see how they won’t be affected. The only thing to prevent this is to keep older and younger people apart, but grandparents want to see their grandchildren.

“Slowly, the infection will be in older people if nothing is done to prevent that,” he concluded.

Moreover, Abulafia-Lapid said while in most cases young people are correct that they will not become sick from coronavirus – overall, as many as 80% of people who are infected are asymptomatic or develop only mild symptoms – this is not always the case.

“Younger people can also develop the disease, COVID-19, and have harsh symptoms,” she noted. “We don’t always know what [underlying medical conditions] we have in our bodies, and we don’t always know what will happen when the virus enters our bodies.”

According to Abulafia-Lapid, around 5% to 10% of people below the age of 55 who contract COVID-19 develop a serious case.

Moreover, recent studies show that there can be aftereffects of even mild cases of coronavirus for months to come. A study released this week by Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center showed that more than half of patients diagnosed with coronavirus exhibit general weakness and respiratory distress several weeks after recovery whether they had a mild, moderate or serious case of the disease.

Additionally, there have been multiple cases of children and teens in Israel and around the world who require admission to intensive-care units with a multisystem inflammatory condition following recovery from the virus. This phenomenon is now being referred to as pediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome temporally associated with SARS-CoV-2, or PIMS-TS in short.

“We have to learn that we are responsible for ourselves and everyone around us,” Abulafia-Lapid said. “This is something everyone should think about.”

Jewish groups angry at Dutch railway company reparation
Chair of Operations of the World Jewish Restitution Organization says NS Rail Company, which transported Holocaust victims to Nazi camps in country, held insufficient consultations before donating 5 million euros to Dutch Holocaust memorial centers

Jewish organizations criticized the Dutch national railway company Monday for not adequately consulting them in discussions to work out a form of recognition for Holocaust victims the company transported to camps in the Netherlands during World War II — from where they were sent to Nazi concentration camps.

The anger came after the railway company, NS, announced Friday that it would donate 5 million euros ($5.6 million) to four Dutch memorial centers as a gesture of collective recognition.

More than 100,000 Dutch Jews — 70% of the Jewish community — did not survive the war. Most were deported and killed in Nazi concentration camps.

Most of the Dutch victims were rounded up in cities and taken by train to camps in the Netherlands before being sent to the border and put on German trains to concentration camps.

Gideon Taylor, Chair of Operations of the World Jewish Restitution Organization, called the decision a major disappointment for Jewish groups.

“This was an opportunity to sit down with the Jewish community and survivors ... to come to terms with a history that led to the death of over 100,000 people,” Taylor said in a telephone interview from New York.

“This is something to be dealt with in discussion, in consultation, in cooperation with representatives of victims and find a way to honor the memory of those who perished,” he added.

NS apologized for its role in the deportations in 2005. A year ago, the company said that an estimated 500 living survivors of the Holocaust who were transported by the company would receive 15,000 euros each. Widows and widowers of victims were eligible to receive 7,500 euros and, if they are no longer alive, the surviving children of victims were to receive 5,000 euros.

In addition, the company pledged to reach a collective form of recognition for those who were not eligible for reparations, including some 20,000 children murdered in the Holocaust, as well as forced laborers and political prisoners.

NS said Friday that it asked the memorial centers to use the donation for educating the young, with a “special focus on discrimination, including anti-Semitism.”

Jewish groups, however, also wanted a donation to help “Holocaust survivors and to support the Dutch Jewish community devastated by the Holocaust,” the World Jewish Restitution Organization said in a statement.

Dutch organization Central Jewish Consultation said the NS decision “rubbed a new load of salt into wounds” of the Dutch Jewish community.

Geert Koolen, a spokesman for NS, said in an email Monday that the company met with Jewish groups as it sought to carry out a commission’s advice to make a gesture of recognition.

“In doing so we had to take into account different groups of interest and different angles of perspective — like Jewish victims who are not eligible for the individual compensation, people who fought in the resistance, forced laborers or political prisoners,” he said.

Koolen added that the company regrets the anger of the Jewish groups and said that NS is “always open for the possibility of renewed contact.”

Taylor said he wants NS to reconsider.

“I think this calls for something bigger, wider, and more thoughtful,” he said. “I hope they will expand on the decision.”

The New Normal In NYC: 11 People Shot In Under 12 Hours
Retiring detective warns the “demise” of NYC is coming if police continue to be stripped of resources.
on 29 June, 2020
https://summit.news/2020/06/29/the-new-normal-in-nyc-11-people-shot-in-under-12-hours/

As police warn that the disbanding of vital units will lead to anarchy in New York City, a total of eleven people were shot in the space of under 12 hours on Saturday night.

According to a report by The New York Post, there were eight separate shooting incidents between the hours of 5.30 pm to 5am in Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens and Manhattan.

Within one week there have now been 59 shootings in New York, with a total of 81 people shot.

Gun violence is up 358% in New York City since June 2019, with The New York Times reporting Tuesday that “It has been nearly a quarter century since New York City experienced as much gun violence in the month of June as it has seen this year.”

The explosion in gun violence dovetails with the disbanding of NYPD anti-crime units, a decision that means around 600 plainclothes officers will be taken off targeted raids and reassigned.

A retiring NYPD detective, speaking anonymously with the NY Post, recently warned that the move will “be the demise” of New York City.

“Anti-crime guys are the guys are the guys who the real bad guys are looking out for. Anti-crime guys are going to drive around in not just unmarked cars. They’ll come around in other cars, rentals that the city gets that you wouldn’t think are police cars.” the detective noted.

“When you’re a really bad guy, and I’m talking about really bad guys, who won’t think twice about taking another life. When they step out of the car, those were the cops who they are afraid of,” he urged.

The detective blasted Mayor Bill de Blasio, saying that he has “absolutely no idea what policing is,” after he caved to the woke mob and embraced the “Defund the Police” movement.

「10万円給付」大都市圏で遅れ 東京23区で平均3割 給付作業に手間取り

我が家は随分早く入金されていたが、自治体の順位はずっと下だったので、私が驚いた。区民の大半は受け取っていない。

「10万円給付」大都市圏で遅れ 東京23区で平均3割 給付作業に手間取り

 国民1人に10万円を配る「特別定額給付金」について、全国で約6割の世帯で給付が完了したのに対し、産経新聞が東京23区と全国主要8市の31自治体について調査したところ、6割の世帯で給付を終えたのは4自治体のみで、23区平均では3割にとどまったことが23日、分かった。新型コロナウイルス感染拡大による政府の経済支援の柱である給付金の配布が全国で進む一方、人口の多い大都市圏では給付作業に手間取り、緊急事態宣言が解除されてもなお給付金が届いていない実態が明らかになった。

 総務省によると、全国では19日までに対象世帯の57・9%に当たる約3390万世帯への給付が完了。すでに給付を終えた自治体も数カ所あるという。

 産経新聞では16~23日時点で東京23区と札幌、仙台、横浜、名古屋、大阪、京都、神戸、福岡の8市の給付状況について聞き取り調査を実施。給付対象となる総世帯数のうち実際に支払いが完了した世帯の割合を算出した(千代田、世田谷、大田区は支出処理中を含む)。

 調査の結果、東京23区は平均で30・3%だった。給付が完了した世帯が最も多いのは練馬区で79・6%。次いで葛飾区61・6%、足立区53・2%、港区52・7%で、5割を超えたのは4区にとどまった。

 大都市圏では、札幌市が84・9%、神戸市も68・7%と支給がスムーズに進んでいる一方で、人口の多い都市部を中心に給付が遅れている自治体もある。

 給付率が3・1%の大阪市の担当者は「世帯数が多く事務量も多い」と話す。大阪市のように連日、数万から数十万単位の申請書類が届く人口の多い自治体では、届いた書類の開封作業だけでも一苦労だという。

 給付金は住んでいる市区町村が郵送での申請受け付けを開始してから3カ月という申請期限が設けられており、8月上旬から9月中旬にかけて順次、受け付けが終了する。

指導者の資質に欠けるトランプ 米国は死につつある 元モサド長官

In the end of Trump's term, the world’s number one superpower is dying
The message Trump sends to the American people is, whatever we can’t solve with force we will solve with more force!

President Trump’s former secretary of defense, retired Gen. James Mattis, responded to The Atlantic (June 6, 2020), on the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis: “Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people – does not even pretend to try. Instead he tried to divide us. We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequence of three years without mature leadership.”

“Leadership” is the key word to analyze in order to understand the leaders of the era in which we live in.

Three basic qualities are required from a true leader. First, he must have a charismatic personality. Charisma is a born trait of leadership and personal charm that generates great popular support. A trait that manifests the idea of “I will follow that person through hell.”

The second quality required from a leader is wisdom, in the sense of the ability consider and decide level-headedly what is the wheat and what is the chaff, what are the right priorities, what is the right thing to do, and more than that, what not to do, in order not to cross the border between courage and stupidity.

The third quality required from a leader is to be a human being. The leader must set a personal example, project reliability, be sensitive to the problems of those who serve under him, and behave not just as a ruler but also as an educator.

The leader’s supreme responsibility is all-inclusive and cannot be divided, whether the leader executes a vision or idea, moves people into action, or carries out a mission. He is the source, the innovator and the developer. He has the longest and widest view. He asks what and how, not why and when. He does the right thing not things right. He strives to expand his scope of responsibilities.

Unfortunately, the era of the truly great leaders has ended. Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Churchill, Stalin, de Gaulle, Mao, Ben-Gurion, Gandhi and Nehru – we don’t have leaders like these today. In this day and age, the first test we as citizens put our leaders through is whether in their speech and actions they unite or divide us.

I wholeheartedly agree with Gen. Mattis’s statement. I can attest that my own prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, in his speech and actions, divides and does not unite. The question is: Why do divisive leaders do that? What is their motive? I can think of a few answers.

THE FIRST would be their wishes to preserve their rule. If they can convince their political base that the opposition, the media, Deep State, law enforcement and justice system are guilty of everything that is going wrong in the country they have a reason to ask that base to give them the mandate, extend their term in office so that they can rectify all the wrongs for which they supposedly bear no responsibility.

The second reason I would call the “strong leader” syndrome (instead of the enlightened leader). In the world of fake news, the entire values set we grew up on went haywire. Lies are “Alternative Truths” and everything that in the past was illegitimate has become legitimate.

In a photo where we saw former president Obama eulogize slain children, we saw him choking on his tears mid-speech. President Trump communicates via the cold and alienated Twitter.

Obama walked down the street, hand-in-hand with the people. Trump walk down the street surrounded by bodyguards, disengaged from his citizens.

Obama’s speech is inclusive, Trump’s is threatening.

The police’s job is to maintain law and order and protect the citizens. The National Guard’s job is to step in during civilian emergencies. The military’s job is to fight enemies, beyond the borders of the country.

Trump insists on deploying the military against his citizens as his first priority. It is clear he is power-drunk. The message he sends to the American people is, whatever we can’t solve with force we will solve with more force!

Unfortunately, Benjamin Netanyahu suffers the same syndrome. The product of the above equation between the ruler and his citizens is therefore not unity, equality and solidarity, but rather one of rulers and natives alienated from one another.

Officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee to George Floyd’s neck for eight minutes and 43 seconds! While Floyd was later lying on the road next to his police cruiser, Chauvin was likely convinced that he was following his president’s messages.

The president needs to unite families who have lost 120,000 relatives to COVID-19, solve unemployment for tens of millions, contend with civil protests that spread all over the country and dampen the fuel of blatant racism. Instead, that president finds time to go to Florida for the weekend to watch the launch of the first American private sector spaceship, an endeavor that the president had nothing to do with but which provided him with a powerful photo op.

When one sees that in Manhattan, the capital of the world, refrigerated tractor trailers are parked every couple of blocks and loading corpses of COVID-19 victims, and Fifth Avenue is boarded up to fend off rampant vandalism, one cannot but whisper to one’s self: This is the number-one superpower in the world, a superpower that significantly contributed to the world in every field, and it is now dying. How sad!

政府は全てを電子化する計画を持っている。現金は電子マネーになる。地球上の人類70億人を、文字通り一つのクラウドに電子的に統合し、まるでクレジットカードの情報のように取り扱う。あなたに関する情報や所持金を、政府があなたの意に反してONにしたりOFFにしたりする世の中に変質する。

「軍艦島」取り消し、検討要請 韓国外相、ユネスコに書簡

軍艦島の世界遺産登録を決めたユネスコ決議には、「日本による朝鮮人の強制連行、強制労働、(それを原因とする)朝鮮人犠牲者」に関する情報を提供するセンターを日本側の費用負担で設営すると書き込まれている。

多くの日本人は、日本側の調査結果を展示する場だと勘違いしているようだが、そうではない。

国際法は、センターに対し、「日本による朝鮮人の強制連行、強制労働、(日本の悪行を原因とする)朝鮮人犠牲者」に関する情報提供と展示を求めている。日本が朝鮮人に対しておこなった悪さをを展示説明するよう求めている。それが成されているか否かが論点になる。

ユネスコの会議で韓国外交官の剣幕になすすべがない日本外交団が折れ、日本からの提案(←韓国から押しつけられたのではないという意味)にて追記した一文を、日本が守っていないと認定されたらどうなるか。面白い事例になると期待して観察している。

できれば、ユネスコでの討議の模様をテレビ中継してもらいたいわ。やられっぱなしの日本外交団の仕事ぶりを国民に広く知ってもらいたい。

Ex-Israeli ambassador discloses ground-breaking research on Damascus Jews
Writing for Avotaynu Online, an outlet devoted to research into the origins and migrations of the Jewish people, retired ambassador Jacob Rosen revealed the surnames of 300 Damascus Jews.
By BENJAMIN WEINTHAL
JUNE 21, 2020 11:20
https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/ex-israeli-ambassador-discloses-ground-breaking-research-on-damascus-jews-632191

A prominent former Israeli ambassador to Jordan published ground-breaking research in early June on the surnames of Jews who lived in 20th century Damascus, Syria.

Writing for Avotaynu (Our Forefathers) Online, an outlet devoted to the research into the origins and migrations of the Jewish people, retired ambassador Jacob Rosen revealed the surnames of 300 Damascus Jews.

Rosen, who is fluent in several languages, including Arabic, wrote that, "like many other Jewish communities in the Levant, the Jewish community of Damascus dwindled from a thriving community with 12,000 members in 1943 until only a handful remained by 2010. Its members largely left for Mandatory Palestine and later to the State of Israel, the USA or Latin America, where they established thriving new communities founded on a rich heritage."

Rosen told The Jerusalem Post on Saturday that his index of Jewish surnames from Damascus is the "basis for further research," adding that "I worked on [the index] for about 8 months — every day for 3 or 4 hours."

The genealogical work is taxing, said Rosen, noting that "your eyes become tired after 3 or 4 hours" and you "need clear a mind" to decipher the various spellings.

Rosen sounded the alarm bells about the need for more knowledge about Syria's Jewish communities and those across the Levant.

"In ten years there will be no one around to ask," he said.

The children of Damascus Jews who were born outside the Syrian capital grew up speaking Hebrew, English or Spanish.

He said that "Syrian authorities will keep [archived material about the Jews of the Damascus] out of the public of the eye."

SYRIA, ALONG with other Arab countries with former Jewish populations, fears lawsuits asserting property claims. When Arab nations evicted their Jewish populations following Israel's independence, the Arab regimes confiscated their property and funds.

Rosen said he is interested in examining circumcision ledgers from Syria, Egypt and Iraq for his work. The ledgers help to determine the correct surnames of Jews in Muslim-majority countries.

The former ambassador previously published an index about Egyptian Jewish surnames. He has conducted academic-level genealogy research for 20 years.

Rosen wrote that "Rafi Asher from Tel Aviv (whose parents hail from Damascus and who is familiar with many surnames of Jews from Damascus), offered to examine my transcription of the Atzmon surname list and to identify those specifically from Damascus."

He added that "I was asked at a certain stage by Yossi Yavin (Yabu), whose late father hailed from Damascus, to explore the Atzmon list and to offer a legal Hebrew spelling based on known rules governing transliteration from Arabic to Hebrew. Using these rules, I managed to identify and reconstruct many contemporary Jewish Syrian surnames. I found the Damascus Jewish surnames were not only of Arabic origin but [of] Sephardic, Hebrew, and Ashkenazic origin as well.

Some of the Arabic surnames of Jews from Damascus uncovered by Rosen are: Abbadi, Abbas, Abu Raish, Abud, Abulafia, Baghdadi ,Dahab/Daab, Fadda/ Fedda, Habib and Khluf.

The retired envoy is slated to publish a "second edition" of Damascus Jewish surnames containing 30% more names.

"During 2015, I wrote an article for Avotaynu entitled 'When Did Damascus Jews Start To Use Surnames?' The source of my data was a collection of documents in the Muslim religious courts of Damascus between the years 1583-1909," Rosen wrote. "My article did not try to index surnames, but rather to figure out when surnames came into use in Damascus. Because the court documents mentioned only names of Jews who appeared before them, they reflect only a fraction of Damascus surnames and only ran through 1909."

Rosen added that "Asher and I verified our list and added several new surnames by corresponding with members of two Hebrew Facebook groups 'Habait Hadamaskai' (The Damsacene House) and 'Lemoreshet Yehudei Damesek Suria u Levanon '( The Heritage of The Jews of Damascus, Syria and Lebanon)."

The former ambassador retired from the Foreign Affairs Ministry. He was the senior counselor at the ministry's Center for Political Research and served as ambassador to Jordan from 2006 to 2009. He was also stationed as a diplomat in Atlanta, New Delhi, Cairo, New York and London.

US threatens UAE with sanctions over Syria rapprochement
Saturday, 20 June 2020 8:17 AM
https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2020/06/20/627847/US-sanction-UAE-Syria

The US has threatened to slap sanctions on the United Arab Emirate as Abu Dhabi presses ahead with efforts to normalize ties with the Syrian government.

US Special Representative for Syria Engagement James Jeffrey issued the warning during a press conference on Washington’s recently enacted anti-Syria economic measures, known as the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act, which blacklists 39 entities and individuals, including Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his wife Asma.

Jeffrey said the US would not exclude the UAE from its coercive measures if it violates the Caesar Act.

“Anyone who engages in economic activities, whether in the UAE or in other countries...may be targeted by these sanctions,” Jeffrey said.

The US envoy also rebuked Abu Dhabi for its policy of rapprochement with the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, calling the reopening of the UAE embassy in Damascus a “bad idea."

“The UAE knows that we absolutely refuse that countries take such steps,” he added.

The Caesar Act came into effect on Wednesday, six months after it was signed into law by US President Donald Trump, targeting individuals and businesses anywhere in the world that operate either directly or indirectly in Syria's economy.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry condemned the American sanctions as “a crime against humanity and a flagrant violation of the international law that targets the livelihood of the Syrians."

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the bans “the beginning of what will be a sustained campaign of economic and political pressure to deny the Assad regime revenue.”

The measures are meant to “prevent the Assad regime from securing a military victory” in the fight against foreign-backed terrorists, according to US Ambassador to the UN Kelly Craft.

The UAE has long been a supporter of anti-Damascus terrorists, but in recent years it has tried to made overtures to Syria as the national army inches closer to win the counter-terrorism battle.

In late 2018, Abu Dhabi reopened its embassy in Damascus for the first time since an Arab diplomatic boycott of Syria.

In December 2019, Emirati charge d'affaires Abdul-Hakim Naimi praised Assad for his “wise leadership," describing relations between the two Arab countries as "solid and special".

In March 2020, Abu Dhabi's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan held a phone conversation with Assad and vowed to support the war-torn Arab country during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

A tweet from Geneva objecting to US authorities describing Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization has provoked calls to defund the United Nations and accusations that the UN is covering for the group.

“UN Human Rights experts express profound concern over a recent statement by the US Attorney-General describing [Antifa] and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists, saying it undermines the rights to freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly in the country,” the UN Geneva office, home to the Human Rights Council, tweeted on Friday, accompanied by a photo of the Antifa banner.

Activists in Portland have torn down a statue of George Washington after covering its head with a flaming US flag during the latest night of protests sweeping the city.

At roughly 11pm local time on Thursday, a group of some 30 to 40 protesters initially vandalized the statue, located on the lawn of the German American Society in Northeast Portland, with graffiti which read: “You’re on native land.” They called the first president of the US a “genocidal colonist.” The group later brought the statue down with ropes.

NYPD cops encouraged to ‘strike’ on July 4 to give city its ‘independence’

A labor strike is brewing in the NYPD.

A pair of flyers making the rounds among NYPD officers are encouraging them to call out sick July 4 — as retribution for police reform and a perceived anti-cop climate following the outrage over high-profile police killings of unarmed black men across the country, multiple cops told The Post.

One message calls for the strike to kick off at 3 p.m. July 4.

“NYPD cops will strike on July 4th to let the city have their independence without cops,” the message, which is being passed among cops via text, according to sources.

“Cops that say we can’t strike because of the Taylor Law,” the message reads, referencing a law that makes public worker stoppages punishable with fines and jail time. “The people and this city doesn’t [sic] honor us why honor them [sic].”

It’s unclear whether the messages are being written by other police officers.

Another message seen by police officers reads #Bluflu and instructs cops to call out sick on Independence Day.

“Police officers like you and me took an oath to protect strangers regardless of race, class or gender,” the message reads. “Today we are vilified and must stand as one.”

It then gives instructions for a sickout, telling members to call their precinct and request a sick day. If they are denied, the message instructs them to call the main NYPD sick desk.

If that doesn’t work, officers are instructed to report for duty — then ask for an ambulance so they can go home sick.

“If you are held because of the #Bluflu, request a bus and go sick from command,” the flyer reads.

PBA president Patrick Lynch said the “blue flu” has been a joke for generations, but “the situation we are in right now is no joke” and NYC cops “have reached the breaking point.”

“Over the past few weeks, we have been attacked in the streets, demonized in the media and denigrated by practically every politician in this city,” Lynch said.

“Now we are facing the possibility of being arrested any time we go out to do our job.”

The NYPD responded that police will be at work on July 4, as always.

“New York City Police Officers will be here today, tomorrow, and on the 4th of July to protect all New Yorkers,” said Sgt. Mary Frances O’Donnell, spokesperson for the department’s deputy commissioner for public information.

“To suggest otherwise is false.”

‘Independent’ Facebook fact-checker exposed as partisan smear factory packed with CNN alumni
18 Jun, 2020 19:39

Facebook fact-checker Lead Stories is a biased outfit bristling with ex-CNN staffers that presents itself as neutral, despite most of its employees having donated to the Democratic Party, a conservative outlet has revealed.

The National Pulse (TNP), whose story about supposed financial links between Black Lives Matter, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, and fundraiser ActBlue was flagged as “partly false” by Lead Stories on Facebook, did some digging on Wednesday to find out who was behind the smear, after their efforts to contest the label were apparently stonewalled.

(中略)

What they discovered was an organization staffed almost entirely by Democratic donors, half of whom had worked for CNN in the past. A quarter of the employees were recurring Democratic donors, TNP revealed, suggesting an egregious conflict of interest, given the story they’d flagged at the conservative outlet was about contributions to a Democratic presidential campaign.

NATO launches PROBE into France-Turkey naval standoff over Libya after Paris complains
18 Jun, 2020 16:11
https://www.rt.com/news/492278-france-turkey-nato-libya/

NATO is looking into a run-in between the French and Turkish navies, the alliance’s chief Jens Stoltenberg has said. The incident occurred when a French vessel attempted to check a ship suspected of smuggling arms to Libya.

“We have made sure that the NATO military authorities are investigating the incident to bring full clarity into what happened,” NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg said on Thursday.

France has publicly called out fellow NATO member Turkey for its actions, claiming that Ankara’s frigates were acting “extremely aggressive” towards one of its naval vessels.The French ship tried to check a “suspicious” freighter, believed to be smuggling arms into Libya in violation of a UN embargo. But the cargo vessel, which was escorted by two Turkish frigates, tried to conceal its credentials and refused to say where it was going, while the warships directed their radars at the French ship.

After the incident, Paris accused Ankara of violating the embargo and fueling the Libyan conflict.

“The main obstacle to the establishment of peace and stability in Libya today lies in the systematic violation of the UN arms embargo, in particular by Turkey, despite the commitments made in Berlin,” the French Foreign Ministry said.

Turkey denied all the accusations, insisting that the French had sought to search the vessel in international waters, which “was not permitted.” It also blamed Paris for “exacerbating” the crisis in Libya by supporting the so-called Libyan National Army (LNA) led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar against the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) – which Ankara overtly backs.

How today’s black and white issue became a Jewish issue, too
Jews often overlook the benefits America’s power structure provided; blacks often overlook the benefits they could reap from internal cultural transformation, too.
By GIL TROY

https://www.jpost.com/opinion/how-todays-black-and-white-issue-became-a-jewish-issue-too-631710

Anguished articles about African-American antisemitism and Jewish oversensitivity keep detailing most Jews’ support for the Black Lives Matter moment despite the #BlackLivesMatter movement’s harsh anti-Zionism. This triggers other articles wondering why even this issue became a Jewish issue.

Don’t blame us – entirely. Blame the spike of Jew-hatred, Left and Right, on the haters, not the hated. But America’s black and white struggle also became about Jews and blacks because relationships between Jews and blacks are never black-and-white. Some activists say that Jews and blacks should see one another’s experiences as illuminating mirrors reflecting our shared suffering. It’s actually more of a hologram – from some angles we see unifying similarities; from others, we see painful differences.

While avoiding what David Hartman called the “moral narcissism” of competing in the we-suffered-most Olympics, we share the unpleasant distinction of being the most hated minorities in the world’s most sophisticated societies. Jews were Europe’s blacks, while blacks have long been America’s Jews. The Jewish experience in Germany exposed the murderous venom beneath German culture’s ornamental veneer. The black experience in America has long exposed the dehumanizing bigotry originally baked into America’s democratic egalitarianism.

The Enlightenment philosopher Voltaire put it elegantly but cruelly: “One regards the Jews the same way as one regards the Negroes, as a species of inferior humanity.” American bigots put it more crudely: “A n****r is a Jew turned inside out.” And modern Zionism’s founder, Theodor Herzl, put it idealistically, writing that “only a Jew can fathom” African slavery, in all its “horror.”

Herzl makes sense. If so many neighbors long treated us as enemies, shouldn’t we embrace one another as friends?

BLACKS AND Jews. Beware overgeneralizing about these often-overgeneralized people. But in America, this natural alliance often seems unnaturally strained. Actually, the picture is mixed. The many friendships, alliances, loyalties, binding African-Americans and American Jews rarely make headlines. The Democratic Party’s greatest loyalists are blacks and Jews. Many Jews considered Barack Obama “the first Jewish president,” just as Julius Nyerere and other Africans called Golda Meir “the mother of Africa.”

Nevertheless, some blacks and some Jews keep clashing. Both blacks and Jews often perceive disagreement with their communal agenda as rooted in prejudice – because it so frequently is. Our intimate, overlapping pain intensifies the fury, fueled by self-righteous “how-dare-you-ism.” “You, of all people,” should avoid antisemitism, Jews say to black Jew-haters, shocked that enduring racism doesn’t inoculate them against antisemitism. “You, of all people,” should understand the affirmative actions needed to overcome ingrained hatred, blacks say to Jewish critics, shocked when our strategy to fight bigotry doesn’t match theirs.

Illuminating comparisons and existential bonds must not become false equivalences. Black antisemitism is mainstreamed – and validated by some influential elites; Jewish racism isn’t.

At the same time, Jews never suffered in America as blacks have, so institutions that work for us may not work for them, and remedies that work for them may not work for us.

Moreover, the whitening of the Jews, the reddening of the blacks, and the blackening of the Palestinians, create constant flash points.

Jews were “whitened,” as Americans downplayed class and obsessed about race. Jews today are often labeled “haves,” not “have-nots.” Stereotyping “rich Jews” renders the Jewish poor invisible. Critics turn many American Jews’ impressive individual achievements against “the Jews” collectively. They claim these achievements prove some inside track, that they’re success on others’ backs, not by the sweat of your brow or the speed of your brain.

So as some Jews prospered, the Jews “became” white. Beyond erasing Mizrahi Jews and Jews of color, this label is ironic. In the 1940s, when whiteness was considered desirable, even the palest “members of the Jewish race” were not considered white. Today, in circles deeming whiteness undesirable, Jews suddenly are white.

Those are the lies weaponizing attacks on Jews for enjoying “white privilege.” Of course, many Jews are privileged. And most Jews walking down America’s streets don’t share the black experience. But malicious exaggerations turn the adjective some enjoy – “privileged” – into a noun defining all Jews, which turns all Jews into targets, too.

Meanwhile, blacks became red, the color symbolizing anger and signifying the Marxist worldview seeing life as a political power struggle. Most successful Jews attribute their success to Jewish culture, American culture, and their particular talents. They acknowledge America’s liberty and stability as necessary, not sufficient, conditions for their success. Most blacks, no matter how successful, still feel oppressed by “entrenched bigotry and senseless violence,” as Obama’s national security adviser, ambassador Susan Rice, recently put it.

African-Americans seek political power to transform America, frequently labeling critics who scrutinize African-American culture as racist.

So two blind spots distort: Jews often overlook the benefits America’s power structure provided; blacks often overlook the benefits they could reap from internal cultural transformation, too.

Finally, Yasser Arafat, his henchmen and Soviet propagandists hatched the Big Palestinian Lie in the 1970s, framing Palestinians as oppressed people of color. Many African-Americans now compare Palestinians to blacks in America’s South or South Africa. Most Jews resent the racializing of this national clash, which also absolves Palestinians of any responsibility.

Just as holograms offer three-dimensional images, viewing the black-Jewish relationship in 3D fosters unity without denying differences. We should be free to disagree on policy matters while all joining the pressing moral crusade to eliminate bigotry. A fairer, more equal, less discriminatory America is a better America for all, especially for blacks and Jews.

Massive spying on users of Google Chrome shows new security weakness
Alphabet Inc's Google said it removed more than 70 of the malicious add-ons from its official Chrome Web Store after being alerted by the researchers last month.

https://www.jpost.com/international/massive-spying-on-users-of-googles-chrome-shows-new-security-weakness-631878

A newly discovered spyware effort attacked users through 32 million downloads of extensions to Google's market-leading Chrome web browser, researchers at Awake Security told Reuters, highlighting the tech industry's failure to protect browsers as they are used more for email, payroll and other sensitive functions.

Alphabet Inc's Google said it removed more than 70 of the malicious add-ons from its official Chrome Web Store after being alerted by the researchers last month.

“When we are alerted of extensions in the Web Store that violate our policies, we take action and use those incidents as training material to improve our automated and manual analyzes,” Google spokesman Scott Westover told Reuters.

Most of the free extensions purported to warn users about questionable websites or convert files from one format to another. Instead, they siphoned off browsing history and data that provided credentials for access to internal business tools.

Based on the number of downloads, it was the most far-reaching malicious Chrome store campaign to date, according to Awake co-founder and chief scientist Gary Golomb.

Google declined to discuss how the latest spyware compared with prior campaigns, the breadth of the damage, or why it did not detect and remove the bad extensions on its own despite past promises to supervise offerings more closely.

It is unclear who was behind the effort to distribute the malware. Awake said the developers supplied fake contact information when they submitted the extensions to Google.

“Anything that gets you into somebody’s browser or email or other sensitive areas would be a target for national espionage as well as organized crime,” said former National Security Agency engineer Ben Johnson, who founded security companies Carbon Black and Obsidian Security.

The extensions were designed to avoid detection by antivirus companies or security software that evaluates the reputations of web domains, Golomb said.

If someone used the browser to surf the web on a home computer, it would connect to a series of websites and transmit information, the researchers found. Anyone using a corporate network, which would include security services, would not transmit the sensitive information or even reach the malicious versions of the websites.

“This shows how attackers can use extremely simple methods to hide, in this case, thousands of malicious domains,” Golomb said.

All of the domains in question, more than 15,000 linked to each other in total, were purchased from a small registrar in Israel, Galcomm, known formally as CommuniGal Communication Ltd.

Awake said Galcomm should have known what was happening.

In an email exchange, Galcomm owner Moshe Fogel told Reuters that his company had done nothing wrong.

“Galcomm is not involved, and not in complicity with any malicious activity whatsoever,” Fogel wrote. “You can say exactly the opposite, we cooperate with law enforcement and security bodies to prevent as much as we can.”

Fogel said there was no record of the inquiries Golomb said he made in April and again in May to the company’s email address for reporting abusive behavior, and he asked for a list of suspect domains. Reuters sent him that list three times without getting a substantive response.

The Internet Corp for Assigned Names and Numbers, which oversees registrars, said it had received few complaints about Galcomm over the years, and none about malware.

While deceptive extensions have been a problem for years, they are getting worse. They initially spewed unwanted advertisements, and now are more likely to install additional malicious programs or track where users are and what they are doing for government or commercial spies.

Malicious developers have been using Google’s Chrome Store as a conduit for a long time. After one in 10 submissions was deemed malicious, Google said in 2018 it would improve security, in part by increasing human review.

But in February, independent researcher Jamila Kaya and Cisco Systems’ Duo Security uncovered https://duo.com/labs/research/crxcavator-malvertising-2020 a similar Chrome campaign that stole data from about 1.7 million users. Google joined the investigation and found 500 fraudulent extensions.

“We do regular sweeps to find extensions using similar techniques, code and behaviors,” Google's Westover said, in identical language to what Google gave out after Duo's report.

Pro-Israel Saudi journalist accused of espionage, asks for protection
The journalist's citizenship was withdrawn in December with no reason given.

Pro-Israel Saudi journalist Hamid Al-Ghabin claims that he has been stripped of his citizenship, according to Al-Araby Al-Jadeed.

Ghabin warned in a tweet on Tuesday that his "life is in danger" after he was accused of espionage and smuggling large amounts of money out of the Kingdom, among other claims in a letter to the interior minister.

"I hope that soon I will be able to send a message to my master Mohammed bin Salman and His Excellency the Attorney General to provide protection for me," tweeted Ghabin. "My record is very clean in State Security and General Intelligence, and they know me completely, whether in Saudi Arabia or when I was in Kuwait or London. I do not need to answer to any security apparatus."

Ghabin has accused Saudi officials of "conspiring" against him. The journalist's citizenship was withdrawn in December with no reason given.

The Saudi journalist has vocally supported Israel in both Saudi and Israeli media.

In April of last year, Ghabin stated that, "Palestinians who do not accept to be a part of the State of Israel should be deported to Jordan" and that "It doesn't interest us what happens with Jerusalem as much as peace between the states interests us. We need to calm things down and make a true peace between the two sides."

Ghabin has repeatedly pushed the idea of Jordan being a Palestinian state, saying that "the world will eventually recognize Jordan as the place for Palestinian statehood" and that, when this happens, "we Arabs won’t feel guilty normalizing relations with Israel as another regional state."

In September, Ghabin wrote concerning a possible conflict between Israel and Hezbollah that "most of the Arab people will stand with Israel."

UAE official: Israel annexation may draw calls for one state
Emirati diplomat warns that Jerusalem's plans could lead Arab states to call for a single bi-national state, putting an end to Israel’s goal of being a democracy with a solid Jewish majority

A senior Emirati official warned Wednesday that Israel’s planned annexation of parts of the West Bank could lead Arab states to call for a single bi-national state for Israelis and Palestinians.

The Arab minister’s remarks, delivered to an influential Washington think tank, struck a new setback to Israel’s hopes of normalizing relations with the Arab world and added to the increasingly vocal international opposition to the Israeli annexation plan.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to annex Jewish settlements in the West Bank and the strategically important Jordan Valley. Such a unilateral move would dash Palestinian hopes of establishing a viable independent state.

Israel captured the West Bank from Jordan in the 1967 Six-Day war and has built dozens of settlements that are now home to nearly 500,000 Israelis. The Palestinians seek the territory as the heartland of their future state. Most of the international community considers Israel’s West Bank settlements illegal under international law.

Anwar Gargash, the United Arab Emirates’ minister of state for foreign affairs, told the Washington-based Middle East Institute that his country is committed to dialog and the two-state solution to the decades-long conflict.

But he added that “ultimately, I personally believe that if we are going where we are going today, and we lose the possibility of really implementing a two-state solution, we will really be talking about equal rights and one state.”

A bi-national state of Israelis and Palestinians would mean an end to Israel’s goal of being a democracy with a solid Jewish majority.

Israel has cultivated close, but clandestine, ties with several Arab states, including the UAE, because of their shared concern about Iran. Those warming relations have manifested themselves publicly with Israeli ministers visiting the UAE, Israeli athletes attending sports events, and some quiet business ties.

黒人キャラ使用の食品会社、“BLM運動”受け続々と方針転換
6/18(木) 12:40配信

構造的な黒人差別を撤廃しようとする動きが加速している米国で、いわゆる“ステレオタイプ”にもメスが入り始めている。

「ミセス・バターワース( Mrs. Butterworth's)」は米国の大手食品加工会社コーンアグラ・ブランズが所有するパンケーキシロップやミックス粉のブランドで、ふくよかな女性をかたどったシロップボトルがトレードマーク。ニルヴァーナの楽曲のタイトルにもなっていることから、そのブランドが米国内の家庭に広く浸透していることがわかる。

しかし17日、コーンアグラ・ブランズはブランディングとボトルデザインの変更を発表した。

ミセス・バターワースのブランドは、シロップのパッケージを含め、愛情深いおばあちゃんのイメージを喚起させることを目的としています。我々は黒人及び褐色人種のコミュニティと連帯しており、パッケージが我々の価値観と完全に矛盾する形で解釈される可能性があると考えました」

つまり、褐色のシロップを満たした女性型のガラスボトルが、黒人女性に見えることを危惧したのだ。当然、1961年に発売された当初はそれこそが目的であり、「優しい料理上手の黒人のおばあちゃんが作ってくれたパンケーキ」のイメージを前面に打ち出したものだったはず。これが今問題の一つとなっている“人種のステレオタイプ”、“人種的バイアス”だ。日本人も、海外のコミックでは猫背でメガネをかけた細目の小柄な人物として描かれる。このように、人種ごとにすり込まれたイメージが差別の温床となっているのは以前から指摘されていたことだが、「Black Lives Matter」運動により、その問題が浮き彫りになった形だ。

ミセス・バターワースに続き、クエーカーオーツカンパニーのパンケーキブランド「アーント・ジェミマ(Aunt Jemima)」、パーボイルド・ライス(蒸して乾燥させた米)で知られる食品加工会社アンクル・ベンズ(Uncle Ben’s)が、ブランディングの方針転換を発表。長い間、パッケージで微笑んでいたジェミマおばさん、ベンおじさんという黒人のキャラクターが消えることになった。

アンクル・ベンズは Twitterで「私たちには人種差別を終わらせる責任があります。消費者、特に黒人コミュニティの声に耳を傾けています。具体的な変更点やタイミングは未定ですが、アンクル・ベンズのブランドを進化させていきます」と声明を出した。

NBC NEWS によると、“ジェミマおばさん”は19世紀の民謡の中で歌われる同名の黒人女性をモチーフとしており、この民謡は奴隷制度への依存度が高かったプランテーション時代への郷愁を歌ったものだという。製造・販売元のクエーカーフーズ・ノースカンパニーの副社長兼最高マーケティング責任者のクリスティン・クロエプルはプレスリリースで「ジェミマおばさんのルーツが人種的ステレオタイプに基づいていることは認識しています。複数の取り組みを通じて人種的平等に向けて前進しながら、我々はブランドのポートフォリオを厳しく見直さなくてはなりません。我々の価値観を反映しつつ、消費者の期待に応えられるようにしていきます」とコメント。

131年の歴史を持つジェミマおばさんが、ついに食料品店の棚から姿を消す。

Anti-gov’t protests continue in Sweida as tensions increase over economic crisis
2020-06-15
https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/anti-govt-protests-continue-in-sweida-as-tensions-increase-over-economic-crisis/

BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The anti-government protests continued in the administrative capital of Al-Sweida on Monday, as several people took to the streets to demonstrate in this southern governorate.

According to reports from Sweida city, a half dozen demonstrators were arrested by local security forces amid heightened tensions at the protests, brought on by the deteriorating economic climate in Syria.

The protests, which have been ongoing for a week, were mostly concentrated at Al-Seer Square inside Sweida city.

Some protesters have since moved to the local intelligence building, where demonstrators are demanding the release of those arrested.

The reasons for the arrests differ from each account, some anti-government accounts allege they were arbitrary, while pro-government accounts say those apprehended were inciting chaos inside the city.

While the protests haven’t exceeded more than a few hundred people, they have managed to create an uproar inside the city, prompting a counter-demonstration over the weekend.

The economic conditions in Syria, exacerbated by U.S. sanctions, has created a difficult environment for the people, as the currency’s collapse continues to plague trade and commerce across the nation.

抗体検査の陽性率発表 東京0.1%、大阪0.17%

抗体検査の陽性率発表 東京0.1%、大阪0.17%
6/16(火) 11:04配信
朝日新聞デジタル
https://news.yahoo.co.jp/articles/1aaa8e2f6f698ebca2d6d49741a5d80960f432dc

 加藤勝信・厚生労働相は16日、新型コロナウイルスに感染したことを示す抗体検査を東京、大阪、宮城で実施したところ、陽性率は東京が0・10%、大阪が0・17%、宮城0・03%だったと閣議後会見で発表した。抗体が新型コロナウイルスへの再感染をどの程度防ぐ効果があるのか、国立感染症研究所でさらに研究するという。

 抗体検査は、ウイルスに感染した後に体内にできるたんぱく質(抗体)を、血液検査によって調べる。感染の広がりを調べるため、厚労省は人口の多い自治体のうち、感染者数が多い東京と大阪、少ない宮城を調査の対象地域とした。20歳以上の住民計7950人を無作為に選び、6月初旬から検査をしていた。

 二つのメーカーの測定法で検査し、いずれも陽性と判定された人は東京は1971人のうち2人(0・10%)、大阪は2970人のうち5人(0・17%)、宮城は3009人のうち1人(0・03%)だった。5月31日時点の累積の感染者数は東京5236人(感染率0・038%)、大阪1783人(0・02%)、宮城88人(0・004%)。厚労省の担当者は「抗体を持っている人は累積感染者数と比較すると多く、無症状の感染者が一定程度いると考えられる。抗体が今後の流行にどう影響するか、現時点ではわからない」と話している。

 今回、厚労省が調査に使った検査方法は大型の機器を使う「精密検査」だ。抗体があるかないかだけがわかる簡易検査キットと比べて精度は高いが、それでも陰性の人の0・2%は陽性と判定されてしまうなど「偽陽性」が出る。

 今回の結果はいずれも陽性率が低いため、検査の精度から考えると、誤差の影響を大きく受けてしまう。山形大病院検査部の森兼啓太部長は「国内の感染状況からみて当たり前の結果であり、ほとんど解釈できない数字」としつつ、「次の波が来たときに誰もが感染しうる。『安心してはいけない』ということが確認できた」と話す。

 東京医大の濱田篤郎教授(渡航医学)は「いずれも低いなという印象だ。欧米の抗体検査では10%程度の報告があるが、日本は大幅に低いことになる。感染者がそれだけ少ないということでもあり、この抗体陽性率だと、日本では、秋にも心配される第2波で感染者数が増える可能性がある」と指摘。だが医療体制や検査体制を整備すれば、「欧米の第1波で見られたように死亡者数が増えるといった被害は避けられるだろう」と話す。

 日本臨床検査医学会理事の柳原克紀・長崎大教授は、検査を受けた人たちがその地域の年齢や職業など構成からみて偏りがないかどうかに留意が必要としたうえで、「二つのメーカーでいずれも陽性の人を見ているので、ある程度信頼できる。今回の流行の対策を総括するためのデータにはなる」と評価する。

 ただし、一方だけ陽性の人をどう評価するかは難しいという。「数人でも陽性の人が増えればそれだけで割合は2倍、3倍になる。そういう意味では0・1%という数字そのものにはあまり意味はないが、『ほとんどの人が感染していない』ということがわかったとはいえる。次の流行への備えはしっかりやらなければいけない」と指摘する。

 抗体検査で感染の広がりを捉えようという試みは、民間や大学でも広がる。

 ソフトバンクグループは9日、全国の社員や取引先、医療従事者ら計約4万4千人に簡易検査をしたところ、陽性率が0・43%(191人)だったと発表した。東京大先端科学技術研究センターの児玉龍彦名誉教授らのグループは都内約1千人を精密検査で調べたところ陽性率が0・7%だったとしている。

 一方、新型コロナに現在感染しているかどうかがわかるのは、診断用として国の承認を受けたPCR検査や抗原検査に限られる。抗体検査で検出されている抗体が、新型コロナの感染を防ぐ能力があるかどうかはまだわかっていない。

 民間のクリニックなどで簡易の抗体検査を実施しているところはあるが、山形大の森兼さんは「ほとんどの人が抗体を持っていないうえ、抗体を持っていたら二度とかからないかもわかっていない。精度の低い簡易検査を個人が受けることにあまり意味はない」と話す。

 日本臨床検査医学会の柳原さんも、抗体検査を個人が受けることにはあまり意味はないとしたうえで、「新型コロナの重症化は1週間後くらいからとされている。もっとデータが集まって精度があがってくれば、症状が出て1週間とかで診断に使い、重症化を防ぐというやり方は考えられるのかもしれない」と話した。

ニューヨーク市警 予算削減を受け、私服警官の制度を廃止 米国

黒人殺害事件の余波で警察予算10億ドルが削られたニューヨーク市警察は、主に麻薬取引やギャングに対して目を光らせていた私服警官の制度を全廃することを決めた。解雇はせず、配置転換で対応する。理由は、(他の職種に比べ)発砲する確率が高いため。私服警官の実体は明らかにされていないが、数百人が町から撤退することになると思われる。

・・・警察予算を減らすのは難しい。以前イギリスで財政赤字対策で警察予算を削ったら、国中の警官が勤務放棄し、あちこちで犯罪が多発するようになったため、政府が折れて予算を増額したことがある。それに比べ、軍の予算を削るのは割と簡単。



NYPD Eliminates Entire Plainclothes Anti-Crime Unit In 'Seismic Cultural Shift'
by Tyler Durden

https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/nypd-eliminates-entire-plainclothes-anti-crime-unit-seismic-cultural-shift

If you want to be a criminal right now, NYC is the place.

After City Hall moved to strip $1 billion from the NYPD budget in the coming years, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea announced Monday afternoon what he described as "a seismic shift in the culture of how the NYPD polices this city." To wit, the largest police force in the country will eliminate its plainclothes anti-crime unit.

No officers will be fired due to the decision; rather, they will be transferred to detective units, or new 'neighborhood policing' units that will focus on the community policing model that some less-radical progressives who favor reform over police abolition have advocated. Shea said the unit is being shuttered because its officers are more likely to shoot suspects, whether armed or unarmed, according to a local TV station.

The decision is a consequence of the two weeks of unrest that followed the murder of George Floyd, while the killing of a black man in Atlanta Friday night by an APD officer has triggered major disruptions in the department, including prompting the resignation of the police commissioner in that city.

Across NYC, the NYPD often has plainclothes officers stationed in park cars around known hot spots - typically low-income neighborhoods where hard drugs are bought and sold, or where gang-related violence is more common. While it's not clear exactly what this unit was responsible for, the connotation is that the department will be pulling hundreds of cops off the street.

Notably, the NYPD decision comes just a day ahead of a White House press conference where President Trump is supposed to outline the administration's policing reform plan, which might be more comprehensive than critics expect.

Several NYPD officers rushed to hospital after drinking shakes contaminated with BLEACH at local restaurant – report
16 Jun, 2020 03:47
https://www.rt.com/usa/491939-nypd-shake-poisoning-bleach-police/

Three police officers in New York City have been taken to hospital after being served shakes that allegedly contained a “toxic substance” at a popular Manhattan fast food restaurant. The officers were assigned to handle protests.

News about the incident, which reportedly unfolded at a Shake Shack restaurant in lower Manhattan on Monday, has spread on social media, where it was confirmed by New York City’s largest police union in a tweet.

In a letter penned by the president of New York’s Police Benevolent Association, Patrick J. Lynch, the union told its members that the officers had a health scare after they decided to dine in at the local Shake Shack location on Broadway and Fulton Street while on duty as part of the protest detail.

As they sat sipping their drinks, they discovered “that a toxic substance, believed to be bleach, had been placed in their beverages,” Lynch wrote, noting that it only hit officers that something fishy was going on with their drinks after they had “already ingested a portion of their beverages.”

Alleging the drinks may have been tampered with, Lynch said that everyone on the force must stay vigilant, adding: “We cannot afford to let our guard down for even a moment.”

When New York City police officers cannot even take meal without coming under attack, it is clear that environment in which we work has deteriorated to a critical level.

Shake Shack responded to the incident late on Monday night, stating the company was “horrified” by reports of the officers’ poisoning and that it is now “working with the police in their investigation” – which has yet to be formally announced.

We are horrified by the reports of police officers injured at our 200 Broadway Shack in Manhattan. We are working with the police in their investigation right now.

The city’s second-largest police union – the Detectives Endowment Association of the City of New York (DEA) – has also thrown its own weight behind the allegation.

— Detectives' Endowment Association (@NYCPDDEA) June 16, 2020

DEA President Paul DiGiacomo claimed that the officers were “intentionally poisoned by one or more workers at Shake Shack,” adding that all three officers were not seriously hurt in the incident and are recovering in hospital. He did not mince his words, accusing “pandering elected officials” of “emboldening” criminals who attack police officers “simply because of the uniform we wear.”

The PBA later said that several union members visited Bellevue Hospital to check on the sickened officers.

So far, no suspects have been publicly identified and no arrests have been made, but Shake Shack employees are being questioned, according to local media. A sample from one of the shakes was also sent to a lab for testing, but its results have not yet come back.



(追記)
市警は捜査の結果、従業員は意図的に漂白剤を入れたのではなく、犯罪性はないとの声明を発表した。不明な点は残るものの、警察は詳細を説明しなかった。

Netanyahu turns to rich friend to fund corruption trial fees
In-depth: PM asks the oversight committee to allow a NIS10 million ($2.9 million) donation from a Michigan-based real estate magnate to fund his legal defense, in a move that some might say plunged Netanyahu into legal trouble in the first place

The awkward arrangement opens a window into the very ties with billionaire friends that plunged Netanyahu into legal trouble and sheds light on the intersection of money and Israeli politics.

Netanyahu has asked the oversight committee to allow a 10 million shekel ($2.9 million) donation from Spencer Partrich, a Michigan-based real estate magnate, to fund his legal defense. Because Partrich also happens to be a witness in one of the cases, the committee has asked the country's attorney general for his opinion on the matter.

The request for financial aid from a friend is not illegal, and Israeli politicians have a long tradition of hobnobbing with wealthy Jewish supporters abroad. But to some, the optics of Netanyahu's request are sketchy.

"It is a problem that we have prime ministers who have ties to moguls," said Tomer Naor, of the Movement for Quality Government in Israel, a good governance group. "When the borders blur, you are blinded by the big money. You want more of it. Then all of a sudden the friend asks for a little favor and that poses a problem."

Last month, Netanyahu's trial on charges of fraud, breach of trust and accepting bribes opened in a Jerusalem court. It is scheduled to resume next month.

The accusations include accepting some $200,000 in gifts such as cigars and champagne from two billionaires, Hollywood-based Israeli movie mogul Arnon Milchan and Australian magnate James Packer.

Netanyahu is also accused of offering to push legislation benefiting powerful Israeli media moguls in exchange for more positive coverage in their publications. Netanyahu has said he is the victim of a witch hunt and called the bribery allegations baseless, saying accepting gifts from friends isn't a problem.

For his multimillion-dollar legal defense fees, Netanyahu has turned to both his wealthy American cousin, Nathan Milikowsky, and Partrich.

Netanyahu's lawyers have asked a committee in the state comptroller's office, an oversight body, to allow him to accept 10 million shekels from Partrich.

The approval process revealed that Netanyahu had already received a $300,000 donation from Milikowsky as well as suits and cigars from Partrich, which he did not receive permission for and was ordered to repay, according to the committee.

The committee also asked repeatedly for Netanyahu to declare his assets, which he did not do, according to official documents released by the committee.

Last year, it declined his request for the 10 million shekels from Partrich, saying it was inappropriate given the charges against him, the documents show. The committee said its decision was final.

But when a new committee was formed under Netanyahu's hand-picked state comptroller, it took up the request again, citing "a significant change in circumstances" that arose following Netanyahu's indictment in January, according to the committee documents. It is now awaiting the attorney general's opinion.

Netanyahu has already been allowed to accept a $570,000 loan from Partrich, the documents show.
According to Naor from the good governance group, the money was meant to repay the Milikowsky money, which hasn't been repaid, he said.

A person close to Netanyahu said the Partrich aid would not cover all of Netanyahu's legal fees, and that someone earning a public servant's salary could not be expected to pay for the steep fees on his own. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to discuss the legal fees with the media.


Netanyahu is believed to be a multimillionaire, thanks to best-selling books, real estate holdings and lucrative speaking fees while in the private sector. The country's attorney general is looking into a murky company share deal with Milikowsky that reportedly netted Netanyahu an exorbitant return on investment.

Multiple messages left with Partrich's office were not returned. Netanyahu's spokesman declined to comment.

Netanyahu has for decades socialized with the ultra-wealthy and his supporters say he has given up opportunities to amass great wealth to serve the country instead. But he and his wife have gained a reputation for enjoying the good life, repeatedly landing in hot water for misusing state funds.

The indictment against Netanyahu highlights his ties. A number of well-known billionaires appear on the list of 333 potential witnesses, including Milchan and Packer, as well as U.S. casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, a longtime Netanyahu supporter, and Oracle Corp. co-founder and chairman Larry Ellison.

Witness number 283 is Partrich. According to the permits committee decision from last year, his relationship with Netanyahu stretches back to 1999, just as Netanyahu's first term as prime minister was ending.

"Even if afterwards a personal friendship developed, at their core the ties between the two were formed as a relationship between a mogul and a senior politician," the committee wrote.

According to a Channel 13 TV expose, Netanyahu's confidants nicknamed Partrich his "air taxi in the U.S." because of the many times he flew on Partrich's private jet during the decade between stints as prime minister.

A resident of upscale Bloomfield Hills, near Detroit, Partrich sits on the board of the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces, a group that runs programs for Israeli soldiers, and has donated more than $2 million to Wayne State University, where he has an auditorium named after him. He is an avid art collector and a fan of photojournalism.

According to Israeli media, Partrich purchased Netanyahu's brother's half of the Jerusalem home they inherited from their father. The deal has raised questions about what interest an American business magnate would have in a relatively small transaction.

Anshel Pfeffer, an Israeli journalist who wrote "Bibi," a Netanyahu biography, said seeking money from a wealthy friend is a way for Netanyahu to "double down" on his claim that none of the gifts he received were wrong.

"This kind of says he doesn't give a damn about the optics because he thinks he deserves it, and he doesn't think in any way this should be seen as illegal," Pfeffer said.

新型コロナの危険性は5分の1、60%の人には最初から抵抗力がある

スイスのチューリヒ大学病院の研究によると、新型コロナの抗体は、感染者のもっとも重症なケース20%にしか現れない。軽症者には抗体ができない。

現時点では新型コロナだけを正確に検出することはできず、陽性と判定された中に擬陽性が多数含まれる。別の言い方をすれば、コロナの抗体保持者が少ないのは、単純に「コロナに感染しなかったから」と言える。実際の感染率は従来指摘されていた数値の5分の1に過ぎない(5分の4は擬陽性)である。

別の研究によると、60%の人は、新型コロナに感染する前から抵抗力を有している。多くの人にとり新型コロナが脅威でないという事実に照らし合わせれば、理解できる。

ゴレンジャーを米国に紹介したユダヤ人がUAEとイスラエルの橋渡しに 西岸併合問題

UAEの駐米大使がイスラエルによる西岸併合に懸念表明した件について、日本のゴレンジャーを米国にPower Rangersとして紹介して財を成したユダヤ人Haim Sabanがアドバイスしたことが明らかになった。

UAEの駐米大使と米国トランプ大統領の娘婿Jared Kushnerの両方と面識があるサバン氏は、大使から、西岸併合反対をどのようにイスラエルに伝えたらいいか相談を受けた。サバン氏のアドバイスは、ヘブライ語で訴えること、主要紙に寄稿すること。

大使は行動を実行に移す前に、内容についてトランプ政権と事前調整した。

16日(火)には、UAEの外務担当国務大臣がAmerican Jewish Committeeの会合で重ねて反対を訴える予定。



Haim Saban helped UAE ambassador slam annexation plans in Israeli media
Saban made his fortune in the entertainment industry and is most famous for 'Power Rangers,' but is also known for his political activism in Israel and the United States.

https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/haim-saban-helped-uae-ambassador-slam-annexation-plans-in-israeli-media-631371

UAE Ambassador to the US Yousef Al Otaiba was advised by Israeli-American billionaire Haim Saban regarding the diplomat's op-ed against Israeli annexation of the West Bank, and played a key role in getting it published in Israeli press, Channel 13's Barak Ravid reported in Axios, citing Israeli sources.

Saban made his fortune in the entertainment industry and is most famous for importing and localizing foreign entertainment into the United States, most famously bringing in the Super Sentai series from Japan and turning it into the iconic and profitable children's franchise, Power Rangers.

However, he has also been very active in politics in both Israel and the United States, having been a longtime supporter politically and financially to Bill and Hillary Clinton. He also maintains communication channels with President Donald Trump's senior adviser, Jared Kusher, and has a long-time association and friendship with Al Otaiba, according to the Axios report.

According to the report, Al Otaiba reached out to Saban to figure out how to best reach the Israeli public opinion with his message against annexation plans. In response, Saban told the diplomat two things: The message must be in Hebrew, and it must be through a mainstream outlet.

It was Saban's communications adviser, Moshe Debi, who suggested that the op-ed be published in Yediot Ahronot, according to the Axios report, which added that very few people in the Israeli daily apart from its editor-in-chief knew of the plan. However, the ambassador had given the Trump administration notice, with most of the arguments in the op-ed having already been discussed with the White House.

Al Otaiba's op-ed is not the end of the UAE's push against annexation. On Tuesday, UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Dr. Anwar Gargash will speak at the American Jewish Committee (AJC) virtual conference and continue calls for Israel to not move ahead with their planned annexation of West Bank lands.

The Iranian tourism department has unveiled a first capsule hotel in the country as authorities seek to expand tourism amenities for budget-conscious travelers.

Iran’s minister of tourism Ali Asghar Mounessan unveiled a first sample of the new capsule hotel in the ministry’s headquarters in downtown Tehran on Saturday.

A report by the ministry’s news website CHTN.ir said that the government plans to set up 200 beds in capsule hotels in the top traveler destination city of Mashhad as well as in Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz and Tabriz.

Mounessan said the low budget accommodation could help travelers and renters in areas like nature camps, airports and railway stations.

 【ロンドン時事】英国民統計局が12日発表した4月の実質GDP(国内総生産)速報値は、新型コロナウイルスの感染拡大に伴う経済活動の制限などで前月比20.4%減となった。

 単月で統計を取り始めた1997年以降で最大の落ち込み。3月も5.8%のマイナスで、英経済は2月から4月にかけて約4分の1縮小した

 BBC放送によると、スナク財務相は「新型コロナが英経済に重大な影響を与えている」と述べ、「コロナショック」の深刻さを改めて強調した。

 4月のGDPは、製造業が自動車生産の中断などを背景に24.3%減、建設業は住宅建設の停滞で40.1%減。宿泊・飲食サービス業は88.1%減を記録した。

・・・イギリス政府は、コロナ軽症者を老人ホームに押し込むことで、無駄に多くの国民を殺したし、経済は25%も縮小させたし、諸悪の根源であるSocial Distancing 2 metresの提唱者はコロナ退院直後に愛人と濃厚接触するし、それを批判した看護協会会長を政府記者会見から排除するし、Brexit議論もひどかったし、どうしようもないとしかコメントのしようがありません。失敗もここまでひどいと、本当の馬鹿に見えてくる。連日大声で騒いで、くだらない国。

黒人問題を黒人以外が批判してはいけないのはおかしい、BLMに寄付すると民主党に送金される 匿名教授が告発

黒人社会の犯罪は、黒人が黒人を攻撃する事件が圧倒的に多いのに、それを白人が口にしてはいけない空気がある。

サンフランシスコ警察は、アジア人は玄関チャイムが鳴りドアを開けるとき笑顔を作ってはいけないと注意喚起している。George Floydのような黒人にとり、笑顔のアジア人は襲撃開始の合図であるからだ。

Black Lives Matter運動に寄付すると、そのお金は自動的に民主党のバイデン候補の2020年選挙運動の口座に送金されるのに、それを知らない人が多すぎる。

9/11事件以降はアラブ人が社会で差別され、最近では中国人が差別されている。優秀なアジア人、アラブ人、アフリカ人は多いのに、彼らが米国社会で相応しい活躍ができないのは、白人至上主義が社会システムに深く根付いているからだが、この問題を落ち着いて議論する雰囲気が、今の米国にはない。

・・・みたいな話が長々と書いてある(と思う)が、全部読んでいない。

「黒人の問題を黒人以外が批判してはいけない」の部分は、
「在日の問題を日本人が批判してはいけない」とか
「慰安婦の問題を日本人が批判してはいけない」とか

Anonymous Berkeley Professor Shreds BLM Injustice Narrative With Damning Facts And Logic

An anonymous history professor at U.C. Berkeley has penned an open letter against the current narratives of racial injustice underpinning the BLM movement and ongoing protests over the death of George Floyd.

Its authenticity was confirmed by Kentucky State University Assistant Professor of Political Science, Wilfred Reilley, who says he was sent a copy of the letter along with Stanford University economist Thomas Sowell.

I can confirm that the letter in the thread below was sent to me and Tom Sowell. It's really worth reading, in a time of widespread panic. https://t.co/bknCdO39c3

UC Berkeley History Professor's Open Letter Against BLM, Police Brutality and Cultural Orthodoxy

Dear profs X, Y, Z

I am one of your colleagues at the University of California, Berkeley. I have met you both personally but do not know you closely, and am contacting you anonymously, with apologies. I am worried that writing this email publicly might lead to me losing my job, and likely all future jobs in my field.

In your recent departmental emails you mentioned our pledge to diversity, but I am increasingly alarmed by the absence of diversity of opinion on the topic of the recent protests and our community response to them.

In the extended links and resources you provided, I could not find a single instance of substantial counter-argument or alternative narrative to explain the under-representation of black individuals in academia or their over-representation in the criminal justice system. The explanation provided in your documentation, to the near exclusion of all others, is univariate: the problems of the black community are caused by whites, or, when whites are not physically present, by the infiltration of white supremacy and white systemic racism into American brains, souls, and institutions.

Many cogent objections to this thesis have been raised by sober voices, including from within the black community itself, such as Thomas Sowell and Wilfred Reilly. These people are not racists or 'Uncle Toms'. They are intelligent scholars who reject a narrative that strips black people of agency and systematically externalizes the problems of the black community onto outsiders. Their view is entirely absent from the departmental and UCB-wide communiques.

The claim that the difficulties that the black community faces are entirely causally explained by exogenous factors in the form of white systemic racism, white supremacy, and other forms of white discrimination remains a problematic hypothesis that should be vigorously challenged by historians. Instead, it is being treated as an axiomatic and actionable truth without serious consideration of its profound flaws, or its worrying implication of total black impotence. This hypothesis is transforming our institution and our culture, without any space for dissent outside of a tightly policed, narrow discourse.

A counternarrative exists. If you have time, please consider examining some of the documents I attach at the end of this email. Overwhelmingly, the reasoning provided by BLM and allies is either primarily anecdotal (as in the case with the bulk of Ta-Nehisi Coates' undeniably moving article) or it is transparently motivated. As an example of the latter problem, consider the proportion of black incarcerated Americans. This proportion is often used to characterize the criminal justice system as anti-black. However, if we use the precise same methodology, we would have to conclude that the criminal justice system is even more anti-male than it is anti-black.

Would we characterize criminal justice as a systemically misandrist conspiracy against innocent American men? I hope you see that this type of reasoning is flawed, and requires a significant suspension of our rational faculties. Black people are not incarcerated at higher rates than their involvement in violent crime would predict. This fact has been demonstrated multiple times across multiple jurisdictions in multiple countries.

And yet, I see my department uncritically reproducing a narrative that diminishes black agency in favor of a white-centric explanation that appeals to the department's apparent desire to shoulder the 'white man's burden' and to promote a narrative of white guilt.

If we claim that the criminal justice system is white-supremacist, why is it that Asian Americans, Indian Americans, and Nigerian Americans are incarcerated at vastly lower rates than white Americans? This is a funny sort of white supremacy. Even Jewish Americans are incarcerated less than gentile whites. I think it's fair to say that your average white supremacist disapproves of Jews. And yet, these alleged white supremacists incarcerate gentiles at vastly higher rates than Jews. None of this is addressed in your literature. None of this is explained, beyond hand-waving and ad hominems. "Those are racist dogwhistles". "The model minority myth is white supremacist". "Only fascists talk about black-on-black crime", ad nauseam.

These types of statements do not amount to counterarguments: they are simply arbitrary offensive classifications, intended to silence and oppress discourse. Any serious historian will recognize these for the silencing orthodoxy tactics they are, common to suppressive regimes, doctrines, and religions throughout time and space. They are intended to crush real diversity and permanently exile the culture of robust criticism from our department.

Increasingly, we are being called upon to comply and subscribe to BLM's problematic view of history, and the department is being presented as unified on the matter. In particular, ethnic minorities are being aggressively marshaled into a single position. Any apparent unity is surely a function of the fact that dissent could almost certainly lead to expulsion or cancellation for those of us in a precarious position, which is no small number.

I personally don't dare speak out against the BLM narrative, and with this barrage of alleged unity being mass-produced by the administration, tenured professoriat, the UC administration, corporate America, and the media, the punishment for dissent is a clear danger at a time of widespread economic vulnerability. I am certain that if my name were attached to this email, I would lose my job and all future jobs, even though I believe in and can justify every word I type.

The vast majority of violence visited on the black community is committed by black people. There are virtually no marches for these invisible victims, no public silences, no heartfelt letters from the UC regents, deans, and departmental heads. The message is clear: Black lives only matter when whites take them. Black violence is expected and insoluble, while white violence requires explanation and demands solution. Please look into your hearts and see how monstrously bigoted this formulation truly is.

No discussion is permitted for nonblack victims of black violence, who proportionally outnumber black victims of nonblack violence. This is especially bitter in the Bay Area, where Asian victimization by black assailants has reached epidemic proportions, to the point that the SF police chief has advised Asians to stop hanging good-luck charms on their doors, as this attracts the attention of (overwhelmingly black) home invaders. Home invaders like George Floyd. For this actual, lived, physically experienced reality of violence in the USA, there are no marches, no tearful emails from departmental heads, no support from McDonald's and Wal-Mart. For the History department, our silence is not a mere abrogation of our duty to shed light on the truth: it is a rejection of it.

The claim that black intraracial violence is the product of redlining, slavery, and other injustices is a largely historical claim. It is for historians, therefore, to explain why Japanese internment or the massacre of European Jewry hasn't led to equivalent rates of dysfunction and low SES performance among Japanese and Jewish Americans respectively. Arab Americans have been viciously demonized since 9/11, as have Chinese Americans more recently. However, both groups outperform white Americans on nearly all SES indices - as do Nigerian Americans, who incidentally have black skin. It is for historians to point out and discuss these anomalies. However, no real discussion is possible in the current climate at our department. The explanation is provided to us, disagreement with it is racist, and the job of historians is to further explore additional ways in which the explanation is additionally correct. This is a mockery of the historical profession.

Most troublingly, our department appears to have been entirely captured by the interests of the Democratic National Convention, and the Democratic Party more broadly. To explain what I mean, consider what happens if you choose to donate to Black Lives Matter, an organization UCB History has explicitly promoted in its recent mailers. All donations to the official BLM website are immediately redirected to ActBlue Charities, an organization primarily concerned with bankrolling election campaigns for Democrat candidates. Donating to BLM today is to indirectly donate to Joe Biden's 2020 campaign. This is grotesque given the fact that the American cities with the worst rates of black-on-black violence and police-on-black violence are overwhelmingly Democrat-run. Minneapolis itself has been entirely in the hands of Democrats for over five decades; the 'systemic racism' there was built by successive Democrat administrations.

The patronizing and condescending attitudes of Democrat leaders towards the black community, exemplified by nearly every Biden statement on the black race, all but guarantee a perpetual state of misery, resentment, poverty, and the attendant grievance politics which are simultaneously annihilating American political discourse and black lives. And yet, donating to BLM is bankrolling the election campaigns of men like Mayor Frey, who saw their cities devolve into violence. This is a grotesque capture of a good-faith movement for necessary police reform, and of our department, by a political party. Even worse, there are virtually no avenues for dissent in academic circles. I refuse to serve the Party, and so should you.

The total alliance of major corporations involved in human exploitation with BLM should be a warning flag to us, and yet this damning evidence goes unnoticed, purposefully ignored, or perversely celebrated. We are the useful idiots of the wealthiest classes, carrying water for Jeff Bezos and other actual, real, modern-day slavers. Starbucks, an organisation using literal black slaves in its coffee plantation suppliers, is in favor of BLM. Sony, an organisation using cobalt mined by yet more literal black slaves, many of whom are children, is in favor of BLM. And so, apparently, are we. The absence of counter-narrative enables this obscenity. Fiat lux, indeed.

There also exists a large constituency of what can only be called 'race hustlers': hucksters of all colors who benefit from stoking the fires of racial conflict to secure administrative jobs, charity management positions, academic jobs and advancement, or personal political entrepreneurship.

Given the direction our history department appears to be taking far from any commitment to truth, we can regard ourselves as a formative training institution for this brand of snake-oil salespeople. Their activities are corrosive, demolishing any hope at harmonious racial coexistence in our nation and colonizing our political and institutional life. Many of their voices are unironically segregationist.

MLK would likely be called an Uncle Tom if he spoke on our campus today. We are training leaders who intend, explicitly, to destroy one of the only truly successful ethnically diverse societies in modern history. As the PRC, an ethnonationalist and aggressively racially chauvinist national polity with null immigration and no concept of jus solis increasingly presents itself as the global political alternative to the US, I ask you: Is this wise? Are we really doing the right thing?

As a final point, our university and department has made multiple statements celebrating and eulogizing George Floyd. Floyd was a multiple felon who once held a pregnant black woman at gunpoint. He broke into her home with a gang of men and pointed a gun at her pregnant stomach. He terrorized the women in his community. He sired and abandoned multiple children, playing no part in their support or upbringing, failing one of the most basic tests of decency for a human being. He was a drug-addict and sometime drug-dealer, a swindler who preyed upon his honest and hard-working neighbors.

And yet, the regents of UC and the historians of the UCB History department are celebrating this violent criminal, elevating his name to virtual sainthood. A man who hurt women. A man who hurt black women. With the full collaboration of the UCB history department, corporate America, most mainstream media outlets, and some of the wealthiest and most privileged opinion-shaping elites of the USA, he has become a culture hero, buried in a golden casket, his (recognized) family showered with gifts and praise. Americans are being socially pressured into kneeling for this violent, abusive misogynist. A generation of black men are being coerced into identifying with George Floyd, the absolute worst specimen of our race and species.

I'm ashamed of my department. I would say that I'm ashamed of both of you, but perhaps you agree with me, and are simply afraid, as I am, of the backlash of speaking the truth. It's hard to know what kneeling means, when you have to kneel to keep your job.

It shouldn't affect the strength of my argument above, but for the record, I write as a person of color. My family have been personally victimized by men like Floyd. We are aware of the condescending depredations of the Democrat party against our race. The humiliating assumption that we are too stupid to do STEM, that we need special help and lower requirements to get ahead in life, is richly familiar to us. I sometimes wonder if it wouldn't be easier to deal with open fascists, who at least would be straightforward in calling me a subhuman, and who are unlikely to share my race.

The ever-present soft bigotry of low expectations and the permanent claim that the solutions to the plight of my people rest exclusively on the goodwill of whites rather than on our own hard work is psychologically devastating. No other group in America is systematically demoralized in this way by its alleged allies. A whole generation of black children are being taught that only by begging and weeping and screaming will they get handouts from guilt-ridden whites.

No message will more surely devastate their futures, especially if whites run out of guilt, or indeed if America runs out of whites. If this had been done to Japanese Americans, or Jewish Americans, or Chinese Americans, then Chinatown and Japantown would surely be no different to the roughest parts of Baltimore and East St. Louis today. The History department of UCB is now an integral institutional promulgator of a destructive and denigrating fallacy about the black race.

I hope you appreciate the frustration behind this message. I do not support BLM. I do not support the Democrat grievance agenda and the Party's uncontested capture of our department. I do not support the Party co-opting my race, as Biden recently did in his disturbing interview, claiming that voting Democrat and being black are isomorphic. I condemn the manner of George Floyd's death and join you in calling for greater police accountability and police reform. However, I will not pretend that George Floyd was anything other than a violent misogynist, a brutal man who met a predictably brutal end.

I also want to protect the practice of history. Cleo is no grovelling handmaiden to politicians and corporations. Like us, she is free.

How to turn the tables on the Swiss banks – opinion
The bank or financial institution may have received not only a disclosed fee appearing on your bank statement, but also a hidden fee from the fund or similar where they invested your money.
By LEON HARRIS
JUNE 11, 2020 21:20
https://www.jpost.com/opinion/how-to-turn-the-tables-on-the-swiss-banks-opinion-631185

Bribery and kickbacks are illegal in many countries, including the US, UK and Israel. But anyone with investments in Switzerland may not know they were affected and may even be due a fee refund, which can be substantial.

This refers to hidden “retrocession fees” or “portfolio maintenance commission” which had the effect of reducing return rates with little or no detailed explanation.

Here is an example:
Annual return, say: 5%
Undisclosed “Portfolio maintenance commission”: 2%
Disclosed return to the investor: 3%
Disclosed bank fee: 1%
Net disclosed return: 2% (less than half the 5%)

In other words, the bank or financial institution may have received not only a disclosed fee appearing on your bank statement, but also a hidden fee from the fund or similar where they invested your money.

The refund due may be as much as $25,000-75,000, per million dollars.

However, you won’t get a refund of any hidden fees if you don’t apply soon. There are time limits and action may be needed now to stop the clock.

You don’t need many details to start the process, mainly the name and address of the bank and a copy of the passport of the family member that held the account.

How did all this happen?

Background

For many years, it was very common that people from all over the world invested assets in Switzerland. The bank secrecy, the stable Swiss Franc and the international infrastructure of Swiss banks spoke for themselves. Unfortunately, it was also common for Swiss banks and asset managers to collect commission, called retrocession fees, of 0.5-2% of the invested amount from product providers for the brokerage of funds, structured products, bonds, etc. This commission was received without the clients’ consent and independent of the performance of the financial products.

This lucrative business model helped the Swiss banks to enjoy billions of dollars of retrocession fees that are due to the investors and can therefore be claimed back. According to a study, around $4 billion of retrocessions were apparently collected by the banking institutions in 2012 alone.

Court judgments:

The Swiss Federal Court ruled in 2006 and 2012 that investors are entitled to retrocession fees and that Swiss banks and asset managers have to hand over them over to their customers (judgments BGE 132 III 460 ff, BGE 4A_127 / 2012 and 4A_141 / 2012).

This obligation also applies if the commissions have flowed within different entities of a bank to avoid conflict of interest.

In 2017, a further decision by the Swiss Federal Court (judgment of June 16, 2017, Az. 4 A 508/2016) set the statutory limitation period at ten years. Since then, customers have been able to effect claims for the past ten years.

An existing business relationship with a Swiss bank is not necessary for this, but also not a hindrance.

Claim process:

It is thought that many investors using Switzerland were affected by the unlawful retention of retrocessions. However, the federal banks do not return the kick-back commissions to their customers pro-actively, it is up to each customer to make a claim. Unfortunately, the claim process may not be simple. People affected report lack of feedback from their bank even after multiple inquiries. Others were apparently brushed off as the banks referred to waivers that were often not legally valid but enough to scare investors away. In later years, usually after 2013, the small print was tightened up at many institutions, so a detailed review year by year is needed.

Consider using experienced professionals who specialize in this area to make and pursue your claim.

The years 2010 to 2013 are particularly interesting, as a number of Swiss institutions apparently received then large amounts of retrocessions, for which there are no or insufficient waivers. Accordingly, any claim should be lodged as soon as possible. The Swiss statute of limitations is ten years unless a claim is made for a refund and to stop the clock.

Comments:

This retrocession recovery process is available for people and entities around the world who invested via Switzerland.

In Israel, it is permissible to hold accounts in Switzerland, provided tax due is paid on any income or gains arising. Some did so under an amnesty program. New immigrants and returning residents (abroad for 10 years) may not owe any Israeli tax on overseas income or gains for 10 years.

There are generally no KYC (know Your Customer) procedures when claiming such a refund.

So if your Swiss investment return seems low, check out your fee refund rights soon.

As always, consult experienced advisers in each country at an early stage in specific cases.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:20 P.M.) – The permanent representative of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the United Nations, Ambassador Abdullah bin Yahya Al-Muallami, stressed on Wednesday, the need for Syria to return to the Arab League.

Al-Muallami said in an interview with RT Arabic that the relations between Riyadh and Damascus can be restored simply any day and any moment if the Syrian crisis ends and the factions of the Syrian people agree on the future directions in the country.

On the possibility of opening the Kingdom’s embassy in Damascus along the similar lines of the United Arab Emirates, Al-Muallami said that “there is currently no similar step in the near future because the time has not come yet.”

A delegation from Syria visited the Emirates after the UAE reopened its embassy in Damascus last year.

The Syrian-UAE private sector forum was held in Abu Dhabi with the participation of Syrian businessmen, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency.

“The forum comes within the framework of developing a positive relationship between the two private sectors in Syria and the UAE to establish joint investments,” said Mohammed Thani Murshid Al-Rumaithi, Chairman of the Federation of the UAE Chambers of Commerce and Industry.

US Vows to Help UK Build 5G, NPPs to 'Avoid Economic Overreliance on China'
05:23 GMT 11.06.2020

https://sputniknews.com/uk/202006111079581320-us-vows-to-help-uk-build-5g-npps-to-avoid-economic-overreliance-on-china/

Washington has repeatedly claimed that London's move to give Huawei a limited role in building Britain's 5G network could potentially compromise the country’s security and hamper intelligence-sharing between the US and the UK.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has pledged that Washington can assist in building nuclear power stations and 5G infrastructure in the UK amid reports about a spat between China and British bank HSBC.

On Wednesday, Pompeo said in a statement that the US stood with its “allies and partners against the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) coercive bullying tactics”, in an apparent nod to reports that Beijing had threatened to crack down on HSBC and “break commitments to build nuclear power plants in the United Kingdom unless London allows Huawei to build its 5G network”.

According to the reports, HSBC chairman Mark Tucker met UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s advisers to warn the government against a ban on Huawei’s participation in creating Britain’s 5G sector.

Pompeo blamed Beijing for using the “bank’s business in China as political leverage against London”, urging countries to “avoid economic overreliance on China” and “guard their critical infrastructure from CCP influence”.

“The United States stands ready to assist our friends in the UK with any needs they have, from building secure and reliable nuclear power plants to developing trusted 5G solutions that protect their citizens’ privacy”, Pompeo pointed out.

Tobias Ellwood, chairman of the UK’s Defence Select Committee, reacted to the remarks by saying that “Pompeo’s offer to stand with allies should be taken before the shifting global balance of power in China’s favour takes us closer to a bi-polar world and another Cold War”.
Huawei Vice President Calls for 'Fact-Based Approach' by UK on Chinese Tech Giant

This followed Huawei’s announcement earlier this week that the Chinese tech giant is "as committed as ever" to delivering "the best equipment" to Britain’s 5G mobile and full-fibre broadband providers.

The company’s vice president and head of its UK operations Victor Zhang, for his part, expressed hope that Britain would take an "evidence and fact-based approach" on Huawei, warning of the far-reaching economic repercussions of the firm’s possible exclusion from participating in building the UK’s 5G network.

“We believe the UK will definitely review this based on the facts and the evidence, because the UK will take its own interests very seriously”, the Huawei vice president said.

AIPAC gives lawmakers a green light to criticize Israel over annexation
Does AIPAC support Israel’s leadership at all costs, or does it draw a line on actions it believes endangers the Jewish state’s future?

https://www.jpost.com/diaspora/aipac-gives-lawmakers-a-green-light-to-criticize-israel-over-annexation-631026

WASHINGTON — The leading pro-Israel lobby in the United States is telling lawmakers that they are free to criticize Israel’s looming annexation plans — just as long as the criticism stops there.

Two sources — a congressional aide and a donor — say the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, is delivering that guidance in Zoom meetings and phone calls with lawmakers. The message is unusual because the group assiduously discourages public criticism of Israel.

But these are unusual times: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has set a July 1 deadline to annex parts of the West Bank, over the criticism of people at home and abroad who say the move would set back any efforts to bring peace to the region.

With anxiety pervading the US Jewish community ahead of that deadline, AIPAC faces a thorny question: Does it support Israel’s leadership at all costs, or does it draw a line on actions it believes endangers the Jewish state’s future?

So far, the group has remained publicly silent. But in private, AIPAC is telling lawmakers that as long as they don’t push to limit the United States’ aid to Israel, they can criticize the annexation plan without risking future support from the lobby group.

How far AIPAC is urging lawmakers to go is unclear. A spokesman would not comment except to point to a May 11 statement warning against proposals to reduce ties with Israel should annexation take place. “Doing anything to weaken this vital relationship would be a mistake,” AIPAC said then.

Protests hit Druze city in Syria for fourth day
Residents said demonstrators near a main square of the southwestern city called for Assad’s overthrow.

Hundreds of Syrians in the mainly Druze city of Sweida took to the streets for a fourth day on Wednesday, protesting worsening economic conditions and demanding the downfall of Syrian President Bashar al Assad.

Residents said demonstrators near a main square of the southwestern city called for Assad’s overthrow, echoing chants at the start of pro-democracy protests in 2011 that were violently crushed by security forces and sparked a violent, nine-year conflict.

Syria is in the throes of a deep economic crisis that has seen its currency hit a record 3,000 Syrian pounds to the dollar earlier this week in a rapidly accelerating free-fall. It traded at 47 pounds to the dollar at the start of the conflict.

Protests since Sunday have also called for an end to rampant corruption and the pullout of Iranian militias and Russian troops, whose support has helped Assad regain most of the territory once in hands of rebels seeking to end his rule.

"Protesters called for freedom and toppling of the regime as a result of popular anger over the deteriorating economic, social, security and political situation," said Noura al Basha, a resident and activist.

For the first time since the protests began, dozens of government supporters organised a counter demonstration in front of the provincial government offices, where they criticised a wave of new, tighter U.S. sanctions, known as the Caesar Act, which takes effect later this month.

Syrian authorities blame Western sanctions for widespread hardship among ordinary residents, where the currency collapse has led to soaring prices and people struggling to afford food and basic supplies.
State media made no mention of the opposition protest.

Sweida city had been spared the unrest seen in other parts of Syria since the start of the conflict and remained in government hands.

The majority Druze population have long resisted being drawn into the Syrian conflict that pits mainly Sunni rebels against Assad’s rule.

'You won't need to abolish us – we won’t be around for it’: Why I and many of my colleagues are quitting as US police officers

Travis Yates is a serving police commander in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is a doctoral student in Strategic Leadership, a graduate of the FBI National Academy, and the author of "The Courageous Police Leader: A Survival Guide for Combating Cowards, Chaos & Lies”. This article was first published on lawofficer.com

After more than 27 years in the force, I’ve had enough. These protests and riots are the final straw. The nasty words we get called all the time have now turned into rocks, bottles and gunfire. It’s over, America: we are leaving.

This is the hardest thing I have written.

I grew up in a law enforcement family. My father worked his way up to the rank of Captain at the Fort Smith, Arkansas, Police Department. As a kid I remember going with him on Friday to pick up his check and I was in awe of these super heroes he worked around.

My dad sacrificed a lot and so did my late mother. Whether it was the week-long surveillance or wiretap or chasing drug runners across the country, he gave it all for my family and worked plenty of extra details to never let our family be without. Some would call that privilege but where I grew up, it was called hard work.

The kids at school thought it was cool what my dad did and while he sometimes asked me if anyone gave me a hard time, they never did. There was respect among all… even the kids in shop class.

I didn’t grow up wanting to be a cop but one fateful night, as a freshman in college, that all changed.

I went on a ride along and my life’s journey would never be the same.

After four years of college my dad wanted me at an agency that respected that education so I moved to Tulsa (Oklahoma) at 21 years old and never looked back.

I didn’t know anyone and all I knew was what I saw my dad do, work hard and treat people with respect. I saw a lot of other cops working hard as well and doing all they could to keep the community safe.

27 years has passed and if you would have told me the condition of law enforcement today, I would have never believed you.

It’s not that law enforcement has changed for the worse but everything around it has.

The mentally ill used to get treatment and now they just send cops. Kids used to be taught respect and now it’s cool to be disrespectful.

Supervisors used to back you when you were right but now they accuse you of being wrong in order to appease crazy people.

Parents used to get mad at their kids for getting arrested and now they get mad at us.

The media used to highlight the positive contribution our profession gave to society and now they either ignore it or twist the truth for controversy to line their own pockets.

There used to be a common respect among criminals. If they got caught, they understood you had a job to do but now it’s our fault they sit in handcuffs rather than their own personal decisions.

If someone attacked a cop, they were seen as such. Now we martyr them and sue for millions.

We used to be able to testify in court and we were believed. Now, unless there is video from three different angles, no one cares what you have to say.

With all this talk about racism and racist cops, I’ve never seen people treated differently because of their race. And while I know that cowards that have never done this job will call me racist for saying it, all I’ve ever seen was criminal behavior and cops trying to stop it and they didn’t give a rip what their skin color was.

I’ve seen cops help and save any type of race, gender or ethnicity you can think of and while that used to mean something, no one cares anymore.

I’ve been called every name you can think of and many of them with racial overtones and it’s never come from cops. I’ve watched African American cops take the brunt of this and even talked one rookie out of quitting after he was berated by a lot of cowards that had the same skin color as him.

I’ve heard words I never heard before being a cop.

Uncle Tom, Cracker, Pig and the N Word just to name a few. I’ve heard them thousands of times and never once did I see a police officer retaliate.

They just took it.

Despite that, it’s been the greatest opportunity of my life to do this job. I would have recommended it to anyone and I secretly hoped one of my kids would do it one day.

They would have been a 4th Generation Cop.

But today, all of that is over. I wouldn’t wish this job on my worst enemy. I would never send anyone I cared about into the hell that this profession has become.

It’s the only job you can do everything right and lose everything.

It’s the only job where the same citizens you risk your life for hate you for it.

It’s the only segment left in society where it’s cool to discriminate and judge, just because of the uniform you wear.

You never get to explain.

You can never reason with them.

The nasty words have now turned into rocks and bottles and gunfire.

I’ve watched it happen to those around me and I have seen the total destruction of their life.

This job is a walking time bomb and you could get cancelled or prosecuted on the very next call, even if you do everything right.

No profession has to deal with that.

Doctors kill 250,000 people a year. They call them “medical mistakes” because society understands that they do a very difficult job under high stress and they must make the best possible decision in the moment.

Law enforcement is tasked with the same and we are highly successful. Despite the most violent society we have ever seen, less than 1,000 suspects are killed a year. 96% are attacking us with weapons and all but a few others are attacking us with their cars or their fists and more and more with simulated guns so Benjamin Crump (an American civil rights attorney) can help their family win the lottery.

I’ve seen cops risk their own lives when they shouldn’t have… just to keep from taking one.

They never get the credit that other professions get.

Cowards are all around us. From chiefs to sheriffs to politicians, no one has our back.

Now, the little we have, we are told they are going to defund us or even abolish us. Citizens with a political agenda will reign over us and all you have to do is wake up and put on a uniform to be a racist.

This weekend I received death threats for just doing my job. It would have been outrageous a decade ago and made national news.

Now, it’s just a Monday.

There will be more threats, more accusations of racism and more lies told about us.

I used to talk cops out of leaving the job. Now I’m encouraging them.

It’s over America. You finally did it.

You aren’t going to have to abolish the police, we won’t be around for it.

And while I know most Americans still appreciate us, it’s not enough and the risk is too high.

Those of you that say thank you or buy the occasional meal, it means everything.

But those of you that were silent while the slow turning of the knives in our backs happened by thugs and cowards, this is on you.

Your belief in hashtags and memes over the truth has and will create an environment in your community that you will never expect.

Food Waste Not, Want Not in the GCC
Cultural tendencies often lead to large amounts of food going unused but this is slowly changing

The recently released report by Ernst & Young and HSBC titled “Food for the Future” says that Saudi Arabia wastes an estimated 427 kilograms per person per year, in contrast to Europe and North America, which discard between 95 and 115 kg on average per person annually.

Saudi Arabia is not alone; food waste is particularly problematic in Gulf countries.

In the United Arab Emirates, for example, food waste has been estimated at 197 kg per person annually.

“Many studies show that the GCC [Gulf Cooperation Council] countries are global leaders in food waste,” Dr. Tarek Ben Hassen, assistant professor of policy, planning and development at Qatar University, told The Media Line. Ben Hassen is co-author with Hamid El Bilali of the recently published systematic review, “Food Waste in the Countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council.” Bilali and Ben Hassen quote a variety of studies showing a wide range of estimates of food waste in the GCC. One shows Saudi Arabians wasting between 165 and 511 kg of food per capita annually. Another says that in Qatar, per capita food waste amounts to 584 to 657 kg per year.

国際刑事裁判所ICCでのイスラエル提訴の論点

ICC Prosecutor: Israel war crimes probe can go on despite Oslo Accords
The ICC chief prosecutor's statement came in response to a May 27 request from the ICC Pretrial Chamber to clarify the status of the Oslo Accords and their impact on the war crimes probe.

International Criminal Court Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda has told the ICC’s Pretrial Chamber that a war crimes probe against Israelis can proceed despite the continued application of the Oslo Accords.

Israel and its allies have claimed that the Oslo Accords prevent the PA from seeking ICC involvement in a potential criminal issue and from seeking statehood absent a deal between the parties. Bensouda’s decision on Monday was a rejection of Israel’s legal argument.

Bensouda further expressed concern about the impact of annexation on the combustible Israeli-Palestinian conflict and said that any annexation by Israel of any part of the West Bank would not have legal validity.

The ICC chief prosecutor’s statement came in response to a May 27 request from the ICC Pretrial Chamber to clarify the status of the Oslo Accords and their impact on a war crimes probe against Israel.

The ICC asked the Palestinian Authority to declare whether the Oslo Accords are still legally binding. The request came after PA President Mahmoud Abbas declared on May 19 that the PA no longer viewed itself as bound by the Oslo Accords due to Israel’s intention to annex parts of the West Bank.

Responding to this question, the PA said that Abbas’s May 19 declaration was not part of the legal record of the war crimes case regarding Israel.

The PA explained that its position was that the ICC could probe Israelis for war crimes even if the Oslo Accords were still in effect – clearly implying that the PA has not abandoned the Oslo process on a formal legal level despite pronouncements claiming the opposite. It added that if Israel annexed the West Bank, however, this would officially cancel the Oslo Accords.

Now that Bensouda has replied, it remains to be seen if Israel will respond, and if it does, what position it will take.

Israel has until June 24 to reply, but may also choose not to so as not to give recognition to the ICC’s investigation.

Overall, the answers which the parties give could have implications for whether a war crimes case is brought against Israelis over the 2014 Gaza War, the settlement enterprise and the 2018-2019 Gaza border conflict.

In a brief filed by the Czech Republic supporting Israel, the argument was that the Oslo Accords give Israel exclusive jurisdiction over criminal issues in the West Bank relating to Israel, proving that there is no “State of Palestine” to send a case to the ICC.

Only a state can usually refer a case to the ICC.

Responding to these arguments, Bensouda, who supports opening a full war crimes probe of Israel and Hamas, has said that: “State practice demonstrates that Oslo provisions derogating from the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination do not apply.”

In other words, Bensouda – and the PA for that matter – had previously argued that even if the Oslo Accords were not nullified, the ICC can move forward with the war crimes case.

But it is a dicey and vague area of law and a potential winning argument for Israel which could knock the war crimes case out before it even comes to interrogations let alone indictments.

In contrast, if the Oslo Accords do not apply, the PA can say that Israel has lost one of its best defenses to ICC involvement.

There are many other potential Israeli defenses, but the Oslo Accords have always been held up as the most important because the PA voluntarily entered the deal in the 1990s – long after the Six Day War.

The Foreign Ministry has kept quiet on the issue to date.

Bensouda announced her intent to move forward against Israel and Hamas on December 20, but requested an endorsement from the ICC Pretrial Chamber. Even before this latest development, it was unclear when the ICC would issue its ruling.

米国の麻薬取り締まりが今日の暴動につながっている 黒人殺害事件

米国では、麻薬取締官が容疑者宅を捜索するとき、ドアをノックすることなく、いきなりドアを叩き破って突入する。証拠となる麻薬をトイレに流す時間を容疑者に与えない目的で法制化された経緯があるのだが、この法律のせいで、いきなり乱入してきた武装集団に自己防衛目的で銃を向け、射殺される無実の人が、後を絶たない。

麻薬使用は白人の間でも同じように常態化しているのに、麻薬犯として刑務所にいるのは黒人とヒスパニックばかり。黒人総人口に占める黒人受刑者の割合は、奴隷制末期(1850年)の米国や、アパルトヘイト時代末期の南アフリカの数字よりも多い。

全ての警官が人種差別主義者ではないが、警察内に差別する構造が存在することは否定できない。

西岸併合は南アフリカのアパルトヘイトと同じ 世界から糾弾され終わる イスラエル紙

東エルサレムとゴラン高原を併合した過去2回、イスラエルは領土を併合し、そこに住む住民には市民権を持つ権利を与えた。今回の西岸併合はそうではない。ネタンヤフは領土だけ併合するが、そこに住むアラブ人は法の保護から排除する方針を明らかにしている。

それは正に、かつて南アフリカがしていたアパルトヘイト策に他ならない。アパルトヘイトは世界中から糾弾され、国ごとボイコットされ、軌道修正を余儀なくされた。

ネタンヤフがしようとしていることは、イスラエルの為にならない。

Annexation now, perhaps peace later
Opinion: Even if Israel only controls 30% of the West Bank, it is a message to the world - both allies and enemies - that the Jewish state is here to stay and it will no longer evacuate legal settlements and those who lawfully live in them
Tzvika Vogel |

Prepare, because the moment of truth is nigh. The IDF will need to prepare to answer the threats coming from Lebanon and the Gaza Strip. Those two fronts are becoming too heated to cool down on their own.

Hezbollah and Hamas have gathered their strength and each is prepared to escalate their own 20-year war of attrition against Israel.

In order to prevent such an escalation from spreading to the Syrian border and the West Bank, Israel must be the first to strike and formulate a precise strategy for future operations.

The terrorist nations on the northern and southwestern borders of Israel know that they are on the cusp of a historic moment.

The shadow governments of Hezbollah and Hamas have already come to the conclusion that either they tire Israel out and force concessions that will weaken it or Jerusalem will force a reality that doesn't match their visions.

The annexation of territories in the West Bank is the building block of this reality. Israel will hold only 30% of the region, but the sheer act of application of sovereignty is a message that we are here to stay and a message to surrounding nations that their illusions of kicking us out are gone.

We will no longer evacuate legal settlements and those who lawfully live in them.

In the Middle East, when strength doesn't decide, there cannot be an agreement beneficial for all sides.

When there isn't a single and clear winner, every side thinks it deserves more than it should get, therefore there will always be a reason to not sign or adhere to agreements.

U.S. President Donald Trump's peace plan is both beneficial and harmful to a certain degree for both sides.

This unfortunately increases the probability that it won't become a reality without a unilateral, decisive decision. Only a determination and willingness to show national and military strength will create a normative daily routine for both Israel and the Palestinians.

Control over the Jordan Valley and Area C of the West Bank are the justified basis for a peace plan.

It's not annexation, but merely an expansion of existing settlements. We have no need to control hundreds of thousands of Palestinians, but to protect Jerusalem and Tel Aviv and be prepared to answer any threat to us.

It is only right and beneficial for the Palestinians to focus on their own issues instead of thinking about how to hurt us. The development of the Jordan Valley will help mark a permanent border, which will be to our strength in all future peace plans.

Keeping Jerusalem and Tel Aviv safe starts in the Jordan Valley; even Jordanian King Abdullah does not want a Palestinian state on his border.

Although he was 8 at the time, he firmly remembers the events of Black September in 1970, when his father King Hussein fought Yasser Arafat.

The peace agreement between Israel and Jordan is an asset for both. The Jordanians will not so quickly give up on the water, natural gas and intelligence Israel provides them. Their dependency on the U.S. as well is what allows us to have civil conversations with them.

Jordan knows Israel is a key component in the peace process, not an obstacle.

The only question that remains is whether the current unity government is brave enough to take control of the future and rule, or like all previous administrations of the past 20 years, fold and stick their heads in the sand to continue a pointless conflict.

Justice and right are on our side. The power and morality of the IDF allows us to seize the historical opportunity to end Hezbollah and Hamas' extortion and rid Israel of these threats.

Voices from parts of the Muslim world: The worst antisemites
It would have been logical for the Israeli government to have set up an entity that sorted through this information, categorized it and separated out the most extreme items.
By MEDIA LINE
JUNE 6, 2020 21:58
https://www.jpost.com/opinion/voices-from-parts-of-the-muslim-world-the-worst-antisemites-630553

There is a huge largely amorphous mass of news items about antisemitism and anti-Israelism. Google Alerts selects more than 3,000 antisemitic items per year. That is just one of my sources.

It would have been logical for the Israeli government to have set up an entity that sorted through this information, categorized it and separated out the most extreme items. Such an entity however doesn’t exist.

Yet there are shortcuts that help in gathering information about the most extreme incidents and expressions of antisemitism. Since 2010, the Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) annually publishes a list of the Top 10 worst global antisemitic incidents worldwide. In some items more than one case was mentioned. Over a 10-year period the picture of who are the worst antisemites becomes clearer.

The most extreme antisemitic and anti-Israel hate-mongers come out of parts of the Muslim world. The remainder – however dangerous – lags substantially behind.

This is true even though right-wing antisemitism is currently growing. A prime figure in Muslim incitement is former Malaysian prime minister Mahathir Mohamad. In 2010, he made the SWC list for his statement: “Jews had always been a problem in European countries. They had to be confined to ghettos and periodically massacred... Even after the massacre by the Nazis of Germany, they survived to continue to be a source of even greater problems for the world.”

When going through the SWC’s annual lists, one realizes that the only calls listed for extermination of Israel or Jews come from clerics and other influential figures in the Muslim world. The following will illustrate this: In 2012 the cleric Futouh Abd Al-Nabi Mansour prayed at a nationally televised service at the Cairo el-Tenaim Mosque. It was attended by then-Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi. The cleric said: “Oh Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters – oh Allah, disperse them and rend them asunder, oh Allah, demonstrate your might and greatness upon them.” Morsi can be seen saying amen.

In the same year, on August 5, then-chief of staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Maj.-Gen. Hassan Firouzabadi said: “The Iranian nation is standing for its cause that is the full annihilation of Israel.”

Yusuf al-Qaradawi is considered the world’s leading Sunni cleric. In 2013 he did not call for the extermination of Jews but referred to it in a positive way, declaring: “Allah has imposed upon the Jews people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Adolf Hitler.”

Also in the same year, Iraqi cleric Qays bin Khalil al Kalbi said during a US visit: “Allah chose you to be the most wretched of all people. Allah chose you as the best to become pigs and apes.... Allah chose Hitler to kill you, so who is better, you or him?”

Furthermore in that year Saudi Iraqi cleric, lawyer and poet Muhammad al-Farraj broadcast the following poem: “Adolf Hitler had a blessed way of burning you oh rotten nation. If I were allowed to pray for a non-Muslim I would pray for the soul of the Nazi leader who barbecued you [the Russians] and the Jews throughout with gasoline.”

On November 18, 2014, two Muslim terrorists from east Jerusalem murdered four people in a Jerusalem synagogue as well as a heroic Israeli Druze policeman. The terrorists were killed. The next day, Jordanian parliamentarians held a moment of silence for the murderers and read Koran verses aloud – “to glorify their pure souls and the souls of all the martyrs in the Arab and Muslim nations.”

Then-Jordanian prime minister Abdullah Ensour sent a condolence letter to the families of the terrorists stating; “I ask God to envelop them with mercy and to grant you with patience, comfort and recovery from your grief.” The Jordanian government, on the other hand, issued a statement condemning the attack, adding that all acts of violence against civilians in Jerusalem must be denounced.

In 2015, a video purportedly produced by ISIS shows a knife-wielding Islamic State fighter standing near two masked gunmen. The narrator announces that the war against the Jews “will soon be launched, God willing... To all the Jews, grandsons of apes and pigs, we are coming at you from all over the world... [The war] is soon; it won’t be long, God willing, God willing.”

Another video released in Hebrew threatens, “Soon, there will not be even a single Jew left in Jerusalem or the rest of the country. We will keep going until we eradicate this disease worldwide.”

With the immigration of many Muslims to the US, exterminatory messages have also been broadcast there. In 2017, citing Islamic texts about the end of days, Imam Ammar Shahin of the Islamic Center in Davis, California, called from his pulpit: “Liberate al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews... annihilate them down to the very last one.”

In these 10 annual publications of the SWC there isn’t a single exterminatory text by non-Muslims. But the problem goes far beyond. It’s only leaders of a number of Muslim countries inciting to the extreme against Israel and the Jews. There are no such leaders of countries elsewhere. In addition, the Global ADL study found that 49% of Muslims are antisemites while 24% of Christians and 21% of secular people identify with these hate-filled sentiments.

ガス探査を口実にロシアがイスラエル近海に海底探査船を派遣

レバノンのガス鉱区を獲得したロシアが、レバノン沖に海底探査船を派遣しているが、その航路は、ガス探査の必要性と合致しておらず、イスラエル海軍の潜水艦の動きを探っているのではないかという疑惑が浮上している。

ロシアは、イスラエルの鉱区にも関心を示したが、イスラエル側が断った。イスラエルは隣国の契約にまでは口出しできないので、周辺諸国の海底ガス田開発へのロシア進出に警戒しなければならない。



What does Russia want with Lebanon’s gas fields?
Despite the modest signs for actual gas finds, Russia’s involvement in the Lebanese energy market spans much wider interests than natural gas – some of which directly concern Israel.

https://www.jpost.com/opinion/what-does-russia-want-with-lebanons-gas-fields-630557

A Russian search and rescue ship has accompanied the establishment of a new gas drilling rig off the coast of Beirut since March, an action that strengthens Russia’s economic and military involvement in the Lebanese energy market.

Why does Russia insist on taking part in natural-gas exploration among Israel’s neighboring countries, despite the modest promise of relatively small gas deposits? How does this move relate to the belief among President Vladamir Putin’s advisers regarding “Jewish power”? How should Israel respond to Russia?

In early 2018, the government of Lebanon issued two licenses for natural gas exploration in its territorial water to a consortium of three international energy companies: Italian ENI (40%), French TOTAL (40%) and Russian Novatek (20%).

The Lebanese tender should raise the level of awareness in Israel not only because it includes territory under dispute between Israel and Lebanon (“Block 9”), but also because of Russia’s direct involvement in the tender.

Through Novatek, a gas company owned by two Russian billionaires with direct ties to Putin, the Russian government added a military dimension to the project in recent months, when a Russian Navy search-and-rescue ship began accompanying the establishment of a new drilling rig in Lebanese water, 22 km. west of Beirut.

Officially, the Russian ship allows for geophysical mapping of Lebanese territorial water for gas exploration, yet its cruise route since arriving in the area does not match this purpose.

This raises the suspicion that Russia is using Lebanese gas exploration activities to introduce ships carrying monitoring equipment for maritime espionage of maritime movement, including of submarines, close to Israel and Cypriot waters.

This concern is strengthened by the fact that initial findings indicate only modest gas finds in the explored area (“Block 4”).

Despite the modest signs for actual gas finds, Russia’s involvement in the Lebanese energy market spans much wider interests than natural gas – some of which directly concern Israel.

Contrary to common conceptions, natural gas reserves in the Eastern Mediterranean do not pose a serious threat to Russian dominance in the European gas markets.

Russia exports approximately 200 Billion Cubic Meters (BCM) of natural gas each year to Europe.

Israel, on the other hand, has allocated between 350-450 BCM for export over the next 30 years – a quantity Russia exports in two years.

But while Israel’s gas is not a threat to Russia’s market share, in 2011 Russia still made considerable efforts to acquire sizable stakes in Israel’s Leviathan gas field and – having failed that – began gas exploration projects in Lebanon, Cyprus and Egypt.

RUSSIAN INTEREST in the gas reserves of Israel and its neighbors is driven by both economic and military interests.

Economically, Russia seeks to undercut any threat, large or small, to its markets in Europe, which make up most of its energy-related income.

This is coupled with the “energy superpower” doctrine, developed by Russia in the last decade when it became clear that Russia would not be able to diversify its economy away from an over-reliance on natural resource exports.

In this context, the rise of any new exporter in the global energy market, however small, undercuts Russia’s exclusivity.

Additionally, Russia’s perception of the Israeli gas market may be informed by a genuine perception – held by some prominent Russian senior officials – of the power of “global Judaism” and by their view of Israel’s gas project as part of a “global Jewish agenda,” especially following the involvement of a US energy company, Nobel Energy, in Israel’s gas exploration projects.

Russia’s interests in the gas fields are also tied to its navy’s expansion in the Eastern Mediterranean.

One of Russia’s geostrategic challenges is the fact that its fleet lacks free access to the Mediterranean Sea.

Its current access relies on passage through the Bosphorus straights controlled by Turkey, a NATO member, who could potentially disrupt the passage of Russian ships in wartime.

Russia’s gas exploration activities in the Eastern Mediterranean provide it with a legitimate reason to send Russian naval assets on patrol and scouting missions in the economic water of regional states, as well as to deploy them to defend gas platforms.

Such activities by the Russian Navy also grants it a certain degree of control in the region, and the ability to monitor the movement of other vessels – including those of the Israeli Navy.

This Russian strategy, executed in other areas in the post-Soviet region, can be termed a “crawling maritime annexation”: in the first stage, Russian naval ships merely accompany the new drilling platform in the economic waters of the state that issued the search permit.

Afterward, if a threat to the security of the platform suddenly develops, the Russian Navy presence becomes permanent.

Once the extraction of gas begins, and the host state becomes dependent on a Russian company for the provision of an important economic resource, it is only a short road to demanding homeporting by Russian battleships.

While Israel has managed to avoid such a scenario due to Nobel Energy’s refusal to allow Russian-based multinational Gazprom a share of the Leviathan gas field, it now seems to be materializing in Lebanon.

Israel cannot prevent Russia’s involvement in the Lebanese energy market, but it must pay closer attention to its maritime domain as Russia increases its presence in the region.

Israel should formulate a coherent maritime strategy concerning its economic waters, both in the Mediterranean and in the Red Sea, and complete domestic legislation regarding its economic waters (since Israel is not a party to the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea).

Failing that, Israel could find itself responding to the actions of other powers in the region, such as Russian ships surrounding its navy and monitoring its actions; Chinese-owned maritime infrastructure; or unilateral declarations by Turkey or by the Palestinian Authority regarding their economic waters, as has happened in recent months.

Increased Israeli involvement at sea could include various actions, such as the development of surveillance which would enable initial detection of suspicious activities in Israel’s economic waters, as well as strengthening Israeli intelligence cooperation with regional actors that have similar interests of staving off competing powers from its seas, such as the EU, NATO, Cyprus and Greece, all while maintaining coordination with the US.

COVID-19 Has Become "Less Prevalent" And "Isn't Making People As Sick", UPMC Doctor Says

As if the world needed another reason to be bullish after Friday's jobs number surprise, one doctor from University of Pittsburgh Medical Center is doing his best to keep the rally going.

Dr. Donald Yealy, the chair of emergency medicine at UPMC, says that fewer people are testing positive for the virus and those who test positive don't seem to be getting as sick.

“All signs that we have available right now show that this virus is less prevalent than it was weeks ago,” he said, according to PennLive. "Among people who test positive, the total amount of the virus the patient has is much less than in the earlier stages of the pandemic.”

He also said the proportion of those needing a ventilator has fallen. “We see all of this as evidence that COVID-19 cases are less severe than when this first started,” the doctor said.

The doctor's sample set includes western and central Pennsylvania and other communities in New York and Maryland served by UPMC. 4% of UPMC's 30,000 coronavirus tests it has conducted have come back positive, he said. He also said UPMC has tested about 8,000 people who had no symptoms at all, of which about 20 tested positive.

He also said that fears about getting the virus from someone with no symptoms is unlikely.

“Your risk of getting into a car accident if you go back and forth across the turnpike in Pennsylvania is greater than your risk of being positive for asymptomatic COVID-19 infection. This should give you some reassurance that the risk of catching COVID-19 … from someone who doesn’t even know they have the infection, in our communities, is very small.”

The doctor attributes the fall in prevalence to the weather, potential genetic changes, better medical decisions and people minding their hygiene better.

Nearly half the Jewish sites in Syria have been ruined
The fate of most Iraqi sites is unknown
By CNAAN LIPHSHIZ/JTA

https://www.jpost.com/middle-east/nearly-half-the-jewish-sites-in-syria-have-been-ruined-630529

Nearly half the Jewish sites in Syria and a quarter of the sites in Iraq have been destroyed, according to a research project.

In Iraq, at least 68 out of 297 Jewish heritage sites have deteriorated to the point that they are beyond repair, the London-based Jewish Cultural Heritage Initiative said in its report, published earlier this week.

In Syria, at least 32 out of 71 such sites have crossed the point of no return, the report said.

The structures date from the second half of the first millennium BCE up to the present day. Most sites were built in the 19th or 20th centuries.

The condition of many sites is not known despite efforts by the research team. In Iraq, there is uncertainty about two-thirds of the sites. Only 11% of the 297 Iraqi sites are still standing. Of those, most are in poor or very bad condition.

In Syria, the fate of only 8% of Jewish sites is unclear, but 45% of them have been destroyed.

Those that remain have fared better than the Iraqi ones, with most kept in fair condition, according to the report.

Among the most endangered structures are the Bandara Synagogue in Aleppo, Syria, and the Synagogue of the Prophet Elijah in Damascus, the researchers found.

In Iraq, the bulk of the destruction happened during the second half of the 20th century as a result of neglect, reuse for different purposes — shops, auto repair, etc. — and destruction for redevelopment in the aftermath of the emigration of the Jewish community and the seizure of Jewish property, Michael Mail, the chief executive of the Foundation for Jewish Heritage, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

“Jewish heritage in Mosul was affected by the battle to liberate the city from ISIS, but was already in advanced decay prior to the group’s seizure of the city in 2014,” he said.

Mail said the Shrine of the Prophet Ezekiel in al-Kifl is now the Shiite Al-Nukhailah mosque. Hebrew inscriptions and other traces of the Jewish nature of the shrine remain in the room that houses the tomb of Ezekiel, he said.

In Syria, the rate of deterioration and destruction has increased in the past few decades, “although violence and seizure of Jewish property happened earlier,” Mail added, including “heavy damage to the Bandara Synagogue in Aleppo during anti-Jewish riots in 1947.”

Synagogues there are in the best condition among Jewish heritage sites.

The Synagogue of the Prophet Elijah in Jobar, a suburb of Damascus, has been “largely destroyed” and the condition and location of its archive are unclear as a consequence of the Syrian civil war, Mail said.

Baghdad alone had more than 120,000 Jews before a series of pogroms and persecutions caused them to leave.

ENTIRE emergency response team of Buffalo Police Department resigns over suspension of cops who pushed elderly protester
5 Jun, 2020 20:09
https://www.rt.com/usa/490987-buffalo-riot-police-unit-resign/

All 57 members of the Buffalo Police Department’s Emergency Response Team have quit their unit in protest after two officers were suspended without pay over their unprovoked attack on an elderly peaceful protester.

The officers resigned from their positions en masse on Friday after their colleagues were suspended without pay the previous night as a “show of support and disgust,” local media reported. They have not quit the police department entirely, however.

The Erie County District Attorney is investigating an incident – caught on video – in which two members of the Emergency Response Team pushed a 75-year-old demonstrator to the ground in the process of clearing the area in front of the Buffalo City Hall. While they initially claimed the man fell, video later emerged showing the men shoving him without apparent provocation.

Victim Martin Gugino, reportedly a long-time activist well known in the community, is hospitalized and said to be in serious but stable condition.

Erie County executive Mark Poloncarz said he was “exceptionally disappointed” about the spate of resignations, as “it indicates to me that they did not see anything wrong” with the officer’s actions. The mayor of Buffalo, Byron Brown, meanwhile, said the city had “contingency plans” in place to maintain police services while the matter is sorted out.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has called for the Buffalo police chief to fire the two officers involved in the incident, calling it “fundamentally offensive and frightening.”

The police union has defended the two officers’ actions, claiming they were merely following orders to clear the square for curfew. While it has pledged to pay for those officers’ legal defense, the union announced on Friday that it would no longer cover legal fees going forward for other police officers involved in the ongoing protests against police brutality - an announcement likely linked to the 57 officers’ decision to step down from the riot control team.

The mass resignation was greeted with jeers on social media.

Only 2 of the 59 cops in that Buffalo riot unit were ‘bad apples.’ The other 57 just thought there should be no consequences for a senior citizen getting his skull cracked open. The good news is that this can all easily be fixed with more rules and some sensitivity training. https://t.co/obtfiZ4qNO

The 3rd Amendment gets its moment? DC mayor clashes with Trump & GOP governors over National Guard quartering
5 Jun, 2020 17:03
https://www.rt.com/usa/490949-bowser-evicts-military-third-amendment/

Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has ordered the National Guard and other federal troops to leave her city – setting up an unexpected clash over the rarely-invoked Third Amendment barring the quartering of troops.

After declaring an end to the District of Columbia’s state of emergency, Bowser posted a letter to President Donald Trump ordering the removal of “all extraordinary federal law enforcement and military presence” from the city on Friday.

I request that @realDonaldTrump withdraw all extraordinary federal law enforcement and military presence from our city. pic.twitter.com/AvaJfQ0mxP
— Mayor Muriel Bowser #StayHomeDC (@MayorBowser) June 5, 2020

Citing concern over “unidentified federal personnel patrolling the streets of Washington DC,” Bowser lamented that the military presence was “inflaming demonstrators and adding to the grievances” of protesters she insisted had been largely peaceful.

Pointing to the lack of arrests by the Metropolitan Police Department the night before, Bowser explained the city was able to handle “large demonstrations and First Amendment activities” without the assistance of 10 states’ National Guard troops. She added that the federal and out-of-state troops’ refusal to wear “identifying insignia” was contributing to “confusion and concern,” suggesting that the visiting troops were responsible for much of the “conflict between police and citizens.”

Bowser also condemned the use of military helicopters to disperse protesters after one was used earlier this week in a warlike maneuver to terrorize a small group on the streets.

Not everyone was thrilled with the idea of kicking the National Guard out of the nation’s capital, however. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) called the move to evict more than 1,200 troops from city hotels “unacceptable” in a late-night tweet on Thursday, having gotten wind of Bowser’s order before it was made public.

Just heard that Mayor Bowser is kicking the Utah National Guard out of all DC hotels tomorrow. More than 1200 troops from 10 states are being evicted. This is unacceptable. 1/2
— Mike Lee (@SenMikeLee) June 5, 2020

But Lee was flooded with messages highlighting the Third Amendment to the US Constitution, which protects Americans from being forced to quarter troops in their homes.

(中略)

Bowser had hinted on Thursday that her government was looking for a legal way to evict the National Guard troops sent by Utah – as well as Ohio, South Carolina, Indiana, New Jersey, Maryland, and Tennessee – noting that while Trump had called them up, the District didn’t want them.

The crew of a National Guard UH-72 Lakota helicopter has been grounded after footage was captured of the chopper flying just 50 feet above protesters in Washington, DC - low enough to knock people over and snap tree limbs.

US Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy told reporters on Friday that the crew of a National Guard helicopter had been grounded pending the outcome of a 15-6 investigation into an incident in Washington, DC, earlier this week. He said he could not disclose further information about the chain of command above the crew, due to the nature of the probe.

After the 7 p.m. curfew came and went on Monday, thousands of protesters across the nation's capital were driven from the streets by a bevy of city and federal police, as well as units of the city's National Guard and guardsmen from other states. In one incident captured by multiple reporters and onlookers, helicopters descended below rooftop level to hover just yards above protesters' heads in an effort to intimidate them into leaving.

At least two incidents were reported: one on Judiciary Square, next to several courthouses, and another in Chinatown, and onlookers noted both UH-72 Lakota and UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters were involved. However, McCarthy reportedly only mentioned the Lakota crew.

首に膝を乗せ体重をかける逮捕術を教えたのはイスラエル カリフォルニア大学で署名運動 米国 黒人殺害

ミネアポリスでジョージ・フロイドGeorge Floydが殺害された事件に関連して、首に膝を乗せ体重をかける拷問は、イスラエルが過去72年間パレスチナ人に対して行ってきた拷問であり、ミネソタ州警察はイスラエルに職員を派遣して訓練を受けた。米国の警察が少数派に対し残虐であるのはイスラエルのせいであるから、大学当局は、パレスチナからの収奪を止めないイスラエルをボイコットすべきであると主張する告発文が、カリフォルニア大学のオンライン掲示板に掲載され、多数の署名を集めている。

親イスラエル団体は、2012年にFBIが主催したテロ対策会議にミネアポリス警察からも数人が参加し、イスラエルの専門家が講演しただけと説明。

BDS petition blames Israel for US police brutality
The petition was circulated online and signed by hundreds of campus organizations and individuals, which included among other demands for abolishing US police forces.
By JERUSALEM POST STAFF

https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/pro-bds-petition-circulates-blaming-israel-for-us-police-brutality-630448

A petition being circulated at the University of California (UC) has suggested that Israel is to be blamed for teaching methods to American police forces that were used and resulted in the death of George Floyd, according to the Algemeiner.

The petition was circulated online and signed by hundreds of organizations and individuals from schools within the UC system, which included among other demands for abolishing US police forces and returning “all Indigenous lands” to Native Americans.

“This complicity goes beyond domestic policing. We also call on the UC to divest from companies that profit off of Israel’s illegal military occupation of Palestine, investments that uphold a system of anti-Black racism in the US,” the petition said, connecting the universities to Israel.

It added that "we know the Minneapolis police were also trained by Israeli counter-terrorism officers. The knee-to-neck choke-hold that Chauvin used to murder George Floyd has been used and perfected to torture Palestinians by Israeli occupation forces through 72 years of ethnic cleansing and dispossession.

Police departments view Israeli Defense Force tactics as models for responding to ‘public health and safety crises.’"

The second demand listed in the petition is that the UC “Divest from companies that profit off Israel’s colonial occupation of Palestine.”

In response to the claim of a connection between Israeli training and the Minneapolis police force, a spokesperson from the Consulate General of Israel to the Midwest told Algemeiner that “Any attempt to create any link between what took place in Minnesota with Israel is baseless and misguided.”

Executive director of the independent pro-Israel group Academic Engagement Network Professor Miriam Elman also criticized the petition, saying that "like past efforts to blame Israel for US policing problems and police violence, the petition has absolutely no basis in fact. It defies belief to suggest that Israel was responsible for the killing of George Floyd because, according to the signatories, back in 2012 some Minneapolis police officers attended an FBI-hosted counter-terror seminar where a few Israeli law enforcement officials were invited to speak."

She added that "the notion that this training program, or similar police exchanges sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League and other American Jewish organizations, cause or contribute to police shootings by American cops on the beat is ludicrous.

It smacks of antisemitic tropes and canards related to Jewish power, money, and influence that have sustained anti-Jewish hatred across the millenia.”

“This petition basically states that if you care about Black Lives Matter, racial and social justice, and the need for police reform, then you must also revile Israel and detest its supporters, who stand accused of complicity in the suffering of blacks, Latinos, Native Americans and other minority communities,” she continued.

“Scapegoating American Jews for societal ills is one of the hallmarks of antisemtic discourse. University of California campus leaders must not hesitate to speak out forcefully and unequivocally against it.”

Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, director of the AMCHA Initiative watchdog organization, which seeks to combat antisemitism on American campuses, said to Algemeiner that “It is truly sad that at a time when we should be coming together and uniting against hate and bigotry, some are exploiting this tragic moment and using it as a vehicle to promote anti-Israel divisiveness and hate. Sadly, this happens on campus all too often.

She noted that the petition is part of a "deliberate effort directed by the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel to have anti-Israel student and faculty activists use every opportunity to align themselves with meaningful causes while ostracizing and suppressing Jewish students and pro-Israel voices. And faculty, who should know better, are playing a more prominent role than ever.”

“The dozens of faculty members who signed this petition should be ashamed of themselves, particularly Jeanelle Hope, who was paid by the California Department of Education to develop an ethnic studies model curriculum for our state’s high schools.

With faculty who do not hesitate to use every opportunity to promote their narrow, radical and hate-filled agenda, it is no wonder that the first draft of that ethnic studies model curriculum resembled a partisan playbook filled with political propaganda — including the promotion of BDS — and not an educational curriculum,” she continued.

The petition originally surfaced Monday as a post on the DisarmUC Facebook page, which describes itself as “a movement, a collective, which seeks to disarm campus police across University of California campuses.”

リビア戦に投入されたシリア反体制派ゲリラがトルコに失望 脱走相次ぐ

トルコがリビアに送り込んだシリア反体制派ゲリラは9000人。関連記事

トルコがシリア国内で戦うゲリラに支払う給与は月100ドルだが、リビア行きを決めた人には月2000ドル以上、トルコ国籍、戦死した場合は家族の生活保障が提示された。

ところが、2000ドル受け取ることができたのは最初の1ヶ月だけで、以後は大幅カットされたり、無給の場合もあった。トルコ国籍はもらえなかった。給与削減は、投入されたリビアで略奪開始OKを示唆していると受け止めたゲリラも多かった。

在ロンドンの同胞団系人権団体(笑)は去る4月、シリアのトルクメン人を主体とするゲリラ・グループから脱走した数を700人と報じた。別のメディアは、同ゲリラを構成する部隊のうち7部隊2000人が離反したと伝えた。兵力が半減した。

そもそも彼らは、リビアの前線から離れた油田地帯の警備をするということで、リビアに連れてこられた。ところが現地入りしてみたら、前線に配置され、最初に死ぬ役回りだった。

シリア反政府ゲリラはSNSで訃報を報じるのが常だった。聞き取り調査をしてみると、リビアでの戦死者数はこれまでに数百人に達しているが、リビアでの訃報はSNSに一件も掲載されない。その理由は謎である。

リビアに派遣された第1陣は2019年12月に出発したが、上官に賄賂を渡してシリアに帰国した者もいるが、帰るあてもなくリビアで半年間戦っている人もいる。

トルコに騙されたという失望が広まっており、トルコは今後リビアで苦戦するだけでなく、シリア国内の足場も弱まるだろう。

・・・トルコ人が「トルコ人なんか信用できるか」といつも言っているくらいなのに、トルコ政府を信用する愚。シリア戦で一度、米国、トルコに騙されたのに、頭の悪い子たちは、もう一度同じことを体験してしまう。

Although Turkey parades its incursion in Libya as a successful military operation and a demonstration of Turkish military might, sources reveal the ugly underside of this bright picture: Turkey fails to keep promises given to its Syrian proxies, leading to mass defections in their ranks.

Success story?

Last April, forces of Libyan National Army led by Khalifa Hafter launched an assault on Tripoli, the capital of the Government of National Accord, the Libyan National Army’s rival in the struggle for power over the country. Faced with the looming threat of defeat, Government of National Accord Prime Minister Fayez Al-Sarraj pleaded for military help with Turkey, one of his few allies in the region. Ankara was quick to respond: Turkish intelligence agents were sent into the country, military advisers were attached to Government of National Accord units and Turkey-made drones provided air cover.

These measures, most importantly air support, allowed the Government of National Accord to reverse the tide avoid a military defeat. The Libyan National Army offensive stalled and the conflict turned into a prolonged stand-off. The Turkish authorities regard these developments as confirmation of Turkey’s foreign policy moving into the right direction, if not total victory.

Some observers were so impressed with Turkey’s intervention in Libya that they deemed it possible to use it to justify controversial outcome of Turkish involvement in the Syrian conflict.

“What’s happening in Libya today is proof that a direct Turkish military support for the Syrian opposition early in the Syrian war could have defeated Assad and his allies years ago,” claimed Turkish analyst Ragip Soylu.

Yet the “success story” of the Turkish operation in Libya would not be complete without an important detail: besides military advisers and drones, Government of National Accord units are supported by at least 9,000 fighters of Turkey-affiliated armed opposition groups sent in from Syria.

Turkey had no difficulty recruiting those willing to go to Libya among the members of the so-called Syrian National Army. Promises of a hefty $2,000 a month on average in addition to Turkish citizenship and compensation for families of deceased fighters proved to be perfect bait for the militants, who are paid just $100 a month in Syria.

Soon it turned out that not all of these promises were made to be kept. Stories told by disillusioned Syrian mercenaries who were tricked by their employer paint a picture that is starkly different from the rhetoric presented by Turkish officials.

Promises broken

“Turkey lied to us,” openly claim Syrian fighters interviewed by The Investigative Journal reporter Lindsey Snell, who researched the role played by the Syrian armed factions in the Turkish operation in Libya. The investigation, based on interviews with multiple witnesses produced by Snell, established that none of the promises were kept by Turkey in full.

The militants were indeed given the promised $2,000 or even more but only for the first month they spent in Libya. The second month some received a considerably smaller reward while others got nothing. Many regarded this as permission to start looting the areas held by the Government of National Accord, said Zein Ahmad, a fighter of Ahrar Al-Sharqiya group.

The promises of granting Turkish citizenship were a lie as well.

“Now that so many Syrians have died in Libya, we know this is also a lie,” says Ahmad, who was able to return to Syria only due to a bribe to his commander. He now plans to leave Ahrar Al-Sharqiya.

Loyalty lost

Zein is not alone in his decision. Sources in Sultan Murad Brigade, another Turkey-affiliated faction that sent fighters to Libya, disclosed that around 2,000 members of the group defected over the past few weeks.

Late in April, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on mass defections in Sultan Murad, estimating the total number of defectors at 700 fighters. Sources among the militants later indicated that the real number was much higher.

Early in May, opposition media outlets revealed that a total of seven units left Sultan Murad. The units’ commanders were named as Adnan Khuwaylid, Arraba Idris, Abu Bilal Hanish, Abu Khaled Al-Saqa, Abu Muhannad Al-Hur, Muhammad Barakat and Fadi Al-Deiri. These units comprise over 2,000 men – almost half of what Sultan Murad has.

The reason for the defections was a conflict between the commanders and the leader of Sultan Murad Fahem Issa, who demanded that they dispatch men to Libya – or quit. They chose the latter and took their men and weaponry from the positions in Aleppo and Hasaka provinces.

Like Ahrar Al Sharqiya, Sultan Murad Brigade is considered to be one of the most loyal Turkish proxies. Made up of Syrian Turkmen, the group was in the vanguard of forces that participated in Euphrates Shield, Olive Branch and Peace Spring Turkish military operations in Northern Syria.

However, they earned their reputation not in battle but rather during the looting that followed.

Sultan Murad was among the first groups to send fighters to Libya as well. The first Syrian fighter killed on Libyan soil came from Sultan Murad: a native of Eastern Ghouta Ahmad Mullah died in clashes with the Libyan National Army south of Tripoli in the beginning of January.

Sources say that despite its close ties with the Turkish intelligence and the “special” status of the group, Sultan Murad fighters are increasingly frustrated with what they perceive as inadequate support coming from Turkey. Members of the group share the same concerns as Zein Ahmad: they also did not receive the compensation promised by the Turkish authorities that served as the key incentive to fight in Libya. “Fight” is more of a general term here, as many fighters were promised that they would be tasked with maintaining security at oil facilities far from the front line.

These expectations went down the drain the moment the fighters lured by lucrative pay landed in Libya: they had their first fights and first casualties.

Casualties covered up

Both Sultan Murad Brigade and Ahrar Al-Sharqiya, as well as other units of the Syrian National Army, made no secret of the losses sustained in Syria. Social media accounts of the Syrian National Army factions regularly post messages offering condolences to relatives and friends of the fighters declared martyrs for dying in battle in Syria. In Libya, this modus operandi was subjected to drastic changes.

Members of the Turkey-backed factions witness that they lost hundreds of fighters in Libya. The militants bewail the lack of weapons and training blaming their key backer for the dismal situation.

Although the first Syrian fighters arrived in Libya as early as last December and have been sustaining heavy casualties ever since, not a single mention of it can be found on social media accounts of the factions fighting in Libya. It’s difficult to find an adequate explanation for such sudden secrecy of the militants and their backers aside from the intent to cover up the true scale of casualties.

Dim perspectives

Under these strained circumstances, many fighters are willing to follow the example of Zein Ahmad and bribe their commanders to return to Syria, but the Turkish authorities make no haste. Some of the mercenaries have been fighting in Libya for more than six months without any clear perspective of return date: another sign that it has become increasingly difficult for Turkey to find those willing to travel to Libya, even among its most loyal proxies.

Furthermore, mass defections from the ranks of Sultan Murad show that the Turkish leadership not only faces serious challenges in executing its ambitious plans of entrenching in Libya but also loses its grip on the Syrian opposition. The more Turkey gets involved in Libya, the less likely that it will be able to write a story of success.

イスラエルが射程400キロの地対地準弾道ミサイルの試射に成功

In first, classified Israeli missile hits 400km target range
LORA weapons system, a theater quasi-ballistic missile, was developed by the Israel Aerospace Industries and has been tested two months ago at sea to tryout its effectiveness in naval warfare

Israel said on Tuesday it has successfully tested a new weapons system that contains a missile capable of hitting 400 km (249 miles) target range, an unprecedented feat for the country's aerospace industries.

LORA weapon system, a theater quasi-ballistic missile, was developed by Israel's Aerospace Industries and has been tested last month on a ship in the Mediterranean Sea in order to see its effectiveness in naval warfare.

LORA is a container-based surface-to-surface missile. A standard shipping container houses four missiles, which are controlled by an operator working from a command and fire control section located in another container.

This operator can control four container launchers at once, for a total of 16 of the missiles. The LORA can be stored in a container for up to 7 years without maintenance.

The missile is a deceptive one that could hide in plain sight on a commercial freight ship. If undetected, it could launch up to 16 missiles before being located.

No modifications to the ship are required once the weapons system is loaded on. In addition to offensive missiles, cargo ships can be equipped with canisterized and/or concealed anti-ship missiles and guns, as well as air and missile defense interceptors and sensors - making them asymmetric and concealable warships.

If equipped with concealed weapon systems, cargo ships could easily slip behind enemy lines and conduct disruptive asymmetric military operations.

"We have successfully tested the LORA weapons system's various strategic capabilities, both: short range of 90km (56 miles) and long range of 400km (249 miles)," said a statement by IAI. "In both scenarios, it hit the target within a margin error of fewer than 10 meters."

LORA has been in operation for nearly two decades and is considered to be a strategic weapon for foreign powers, some of which opted to purchase it.

A rare glimpse of the system was recorded in 2018, during a military exercise of the Azerbaijani military and during a joint parade with the Russian Army, overseen by President Vladimir Putin.

Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev was seen in 2018 inspecting the weapons system during a visit to a military base, where he attended the inauguration of a new missile unit in the Azeri army.

西岸併合に反対する寄稿 イスラエル

トランプはコロナ対策、中国との対決、国内暴動で手一杯であり、中東問題に関与する余裕はない。従って、イスラエルの対米対話はイラン問題に焦点を絞るべきである。

イスラエルはこれまでのところ、中東和平を拒否しているのはパレスチナであること、イランの核疑惑がイスラエルの生存を脅かす脅威であることを世界に理解させることに成功した。

ところが、今のタイミングでイスラエルが西岸を併合すると、イスラエルが中東和平を壊したことになり、また世界の関心がイラン核疑惑からイスラエルに向かってしまう。最大の貿易相手EUは、イスラエルが西岸併合したら、経済関係を見直すと通告してきている。その時、イスラエルは中国と関係深化させるわけにはいかない。米中対立が激化しているからだ。

政治では、敵のモラルより我々のほうが高いと印象づけることが重要なのに、西岸併合によりイスラエルのモラル優位が崩れる。

西岸内でパレスチナ暴動が激しくなると、IDFは西岸、ガザに注力せざるを得なくなる。肝心の対レバノン、対シリア、対イランの守りが脆弱になる。

イスラエルがアラブ諸国との間で苦労して築き上げてきた友好関係は、「イランの脅威」をことさら強調することで成り立っている論理であるが、親イスラエルのアラブ諸国のすべてが、西岸併合したら関係を見直すと警告している。「イランの脅威」が国際政治のテーマから消えたら、イスラエルとアラブ諸国との関係が崩壊する。

併合しなくてもイスラエルは西岸を完全掌握しているのであり、併合する安保上のメリットはゼロなのに、政治的、経済的、倫理的、モラル的な面でイスラエルにデメリットばかりが発生する。

ネタンヤフの政策は、反ユダヤ主義である。

The consequence of annexation
Opinion: If the annexation of the West Bank does indeed come to pass, it will surely cost us economically, internationally, and morally - and even if there were no price to pay for this measure, it is blatantly anti-Zionist
Amos Yadlin |

There is widespread public consensus in Israel that the West Bank settlements blocs and the region westwards of the security fence will transfer to Israeli control, and that security in the Jordan Valley will remain in the hands of the IDF.

All this will come to pass, but in a future arrangement and not through the annexation plan currently being touted, whose timing is exceedingly poor and which will negatively affect Israel’s national security.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seems to believe that the window of opportunity presented by having a friend in the White House may close in six months.

This is why he is in such a hurry to present the Knesset with a plan to annex 30 percent of the West Bank, in accordance with U.S. President Donald Trump’s Mideast peace plan.

By going through with such a move, Netanyahu is making two mistakes.

Firstly, he will harm the important fight to stop Iran's nuclear progress, and secondly, he will put Israel at security, political, strategic, economic and moral risk.

The Trump administration is busy dealing with the coronavirus crisis, the inter-superpower confrontation with China and the wave of riots throughout the country, leaving the administration with little time to spare for the Middle East.

Therefore, it is important that in our discussions with the Americans, we focus on the Iranian nuclear program.

Iran continues to accumulate enriched materials, operate advanced centrifuges, and shorten the timetable until it passes the nuclear threshold from a year to only six months.

International support is key to stopping Iran’s progress, as is the open and confidential cooperation with the Arab world against it.

However, the move to annex parts of the West Bank will serve to shift the international community’s focus from Iran to Israel, encourage wall-to-wall criticism and throttle normalization and cooperation efforts with the pragmatic and anti-Iranian Sunni world, all while jeopardizing long-standing peace agreements.

Declarative unilateral annexation does not provide Israel with any strategic benefit, only risks and costs.

Israel has succeeded in convincing its friends around the globe that its hold on the West Bank is the result of Palestinian refusal to accept any and all peace plans, and a necessity due to security considerations.

Annexation, though, will put Israel in the shoes of the one that refuses peace.

Furthermore, there is no security justification for such a move.

The Jordan Valley today is under complete IDF control, with the 417th Regional Brigade defending the eastern border in close and inspiring cooperation with the Jordanian army.

The process of annexation will not improve Israel’s security situation, but will surely make it worse - given the damage it will inflict on Jordan, as well as the peace treaty and military and security cooperation between the two countries.

It will most likely also spark riots and acts of terrorism in the West Bank, cause incitement in Gaza, and divert the IDF’s attention from threats on the northern front and Iran to threats in the West Bank.

Politically, there is no country in the world - excluding Trump’s United States - that will accept the annexation and recognize its borders.

For the country that is in the midst of a battle to harness the world to fight the Iranian nuclear threat and the precision-missile system in Lebanon, it makes no sense to shift the gaze of Europe, Russia and China to the West Bank.

In economic terms, the European Union - Israel's main trading partner - is threatening to rethink relations. China is no alternative to the EU , because increasing economic relations would also increase tensions with the United States.

In addition, the map of Trump’s "deal of the century" paints a very long border for Israel, one of some 16,800 km (10,439 miles). Fencing such a lengthy frontier would cost at least NIS 160 billion.

And finally, in the fight against Iran, Israel has the moral high ground. The Iranians constantly threaten Israel's existence, ensuring the support of the international community when it comes to self-defense.

On the Palestinian issue, however, the world sees the two-state solution as the more ethical solution and significant annexation in the West Bank will put Israel in the position of a rogue state.

And in any event, even if there were no costs for the annexation process, such a move is blatantly anti-Zionist and will prevent the possibility of future separation from the Palestinians while safeguarding Israel as a Jewish, democratic, secure and moral state.

A law fit for dictatorship, not Israel
Opinion: Under guise of coronavirus emergency, Netanyahu wants to give power to every inspector and police officer to enter the private home of any citizen, but no other democratic state has seen need for such legislation
Ben-Dror Yemini |
Published: 06.05.20 , 08:35

The “Special Coronavirus Powers" bill introduced by the government is meant to extend Israel’s emergency regulations.

These regulations are a direct continuation of the state’s "Defense (Emergency) Regulations," which were implemented by the British in 1945 to fight the pre-state Zionist underground.

When the state came into being in 1948, the regulations were incorporated into Israel's domestic legislation by the Provisional Government, due to the fact that Israel was fighting for its life.

Since then, Israel has been in a constant state of emergency and the regulations have been in effect. They have even been used on occasion.
Now the coronavirus is putting the regulations back center stage.

An overwhelming majority of Israelis took the lockdown seriously, because they genuinely felt it was an emergency, whether there were special regulations or not.

Yet among those who violated the directives were the two most important people in the government - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin - who both invited family members over to celebrate the Seder meal on the first night of Passover.

Now, Netanyahu wants to grant authority to every inspector and police officer to penetrate the private space of every individual, giving them the power in the spirit of the directives he himself violated.

This is not emergency legislation. This is unnecessary, draconian legislation.

Netanyahu’s actions are a cynical exploitation of the coronavirus, meant to give the prime minister the powers of a tyrant without the need for Knesset approval.

"The world and Israel as part of it have been dealing with a pandemic since January 2020," the explanation for the new legislation says.

That's true, but one has to wonder why countries far worse affected than Israel do not need such an emergency law? For that matter, why haven't democratic countries who dealt with the virus as well as Israel conferred such frightening powers on inspectors or police?

The state needed 5,271 words to explain the legislation to the public and another 4,596 words to explain the purpose of the law itself.

It was then that the public was asked to comment on the government's official site, which was opened to public comments.

"Blatant trampling on basic rights," wrote a man named Ran Ezra.

"Declaration of war on the citizens of Israel whose dignity, liberty and rights will be trampled roughly underfoot. The law is in the service of a dictatorial regime and is unmatched in any Western state," wrote another citizen named Reuven Lavi.

"I want to see a policeman come into my house without a warrant. There will be a mess [balagan]," a woman named Yodfat Tohar wrote.
"You have gone off the rails completely," commented Merav Mizrahi.

Of the 4,695 comments on the official site, there was not - as far as I could see - a single supportive response.

Ministers and Knesset members, this is a law that is both unnecessary and a disgrace.

There is no need to allow police to enter private homes. There is no need to give the prime minister - the initiator of the law who is currently on trial for corruption - authority befitting of a dictatorship and not a democracy.

And most importantly, there is no connection between the bill and the coronavirus.

If there is any wisdom in your heads at all and if democracy is still important to you, do not let this bill pass.

コロナ強制ロックダウンの必要性は消失した ニューロサイエンス専門家 

カール・フリストン教授は、ニューロサイエンスへの貢献で世界的に著名なコンピューター・モデルの専門家である。彼の動的因果関係モデル手法をコロナ禍に当てはめ、次のように説明した。

国ごとの新型コロナの影響は、主に政府の政策による違いではなく、その国民の本質的な違いによる。

何がそうさせているのかについて、(血清中の)ビタミンD濃度から遺伝子の違いまで諸説あるが、我々はまだ完全に理解していない。

どの国にも、コロナのゲームに参加すらしていない集団がいるようだ。

それはつまり、コロナに感染しないということだ。これは国ごとに大きな差異がある。

イギリスにおいては、フリストン教授が(非感染者の集団は人口の)最低50%、もしかしたら80%以上と推定している。

放置プレーのスウェーデンとロックダウンのイギリスの間でほぼ同じ致死率を示していることの意味は、現実には何の違いもないということだ。フリストン教授のモデルで強制ロックダウンの効果は、文字通り消失した。



Prof. Karl Friston: "80% Of Brits Not Even Susceptible To COVID-19"

As the threat of COVID-19 quickly fades from foreground and the damage from governments’ experimental panic-driven ‘lockdown’ measures, some experts are now asking an important question: why do different countries achieved such vastly different results in terms of fatalities due to Coronavirus?

The answers to this question will undoubtedly destroy official claims that the COVID lockdown was somehow science-based, let alone justified.

As it turns out, a large percentage of the population were never susceptible to this virus.

In other words: the threat was completely overblown, and lockdown and social distancing policies have never been based in reality.

UnHerd reports…

Professor Karl Friston is a computer modelling expert, world-renowned for his contributions to neuroscience. He has been applying his “dynamic causal modelling” approach to the Covid-19 pandemic, and has reached some startling results.

– The differences between countries are not primarily down to government actions, but due to ‘intrinsic’ differences in the populations
– We don’t yet fully understand what is driving it, although there are theories ranging from levels of vitamin D to genetic differences
– In each country, there appears to be a portion of the population that is ‘not even in the game’
– that is, not susceptible to Covid-19. This varies hugely between countries
– In the UK, Professor Friston estimates that portion to be at least 50%, and probably more like 80%
– The similar mortality results between Sweden (no lockdown) and the UK (lockdown) are best explained by the fact that in reality there was no difference – the impact of the legal lockdown in Professor Friston’s models “literally goes away.”

‘Who are you?’ UNMARKED riot police patrolling Washington DC streets but WON’T IDENTIFY themselves
4 Jun, 2020 13:47

Washingtonians are becoming increasingly unnerved by the sudden presence of unmarked militias who have been deployed to the streets of the US capital as protests rage, but who won’t identify themselves to citizens and journalists.

Videos and photographs of the mysterious and heavily-armed figures have been swirling on social media for days, with many who have encountered them reporting that they refuse to say which government agency they are working for.

The anonymity of the forces has led some to suggest they look like armed “mercenaries” rather than government employees. One DC-dweller tweeted that the nation's capital felt like it was “under some sort of military occupation.”

One ominous-looking video posted on Thursday shows lines of burly men without any identifying ID tags or insignias standing guard near the White House. “Refused to tell us who they're with,” the tweeter who posted the video said.

Some of the men identified themselves only as being with “the Department of Justice,” according to one Mother Jones journalist.

It turns out that at least some of the men are prison riot officers sent in by the Federal Bureau of Prisons at the request of Attorney General William Barr, according to NBC. A statement from the bureau said the officers are un-badged because they are “serving a broader mission.”

Though that doesn’t seem like an entirely legitimate excuse for the lack of identifying information. Demonstrators protesting police brutality are concerned that if any of the badgeless officers seriously injure anyone or commit other crimes while patrolling the capital, that there will be no way to identify them.

It appears DC is not the only place where the unmarked police have shown up. Some people tweeted about similarly unidentified forces at Philadelphia protests, too.

'Professor Lockdown' Ferguson, UK's Covid-19 czar, admits crippling restrictions MADE NO DIFFERENCE – where’s the outrage?
3 Jun, 2020 16:45
https://www.rt.com/op-ed/490659-ferguson-undermined-uk-lockdown/

By Jason O’Toole, who has worked as a senior feature writer for the Irish Daily Mail, a columnist with the Irish Sunday Mirror and senior editor of Hot Press magazine. He’s also the author of several best-selling books.

The British scientist known as Professor Lockdown has undermined the draconian policy he unleashed on the world by confessing that Britain hasn’t fared any better in tackling the disease than the laid-back Scandis.

Professor Neil Ferguson probably woke up this morning breathing a massive sigh of relief because he hadn’t been ripped to shreds again in the British newspapers for this second time in just under a month – this time over his startling admission that there has been no significant difference in the levels of Covid-19 suppression when comparing the UK and Sweden.

During his evidence to the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee on Tuesday, he said: “They [Swedish scientists] came to a different policy conclusion based really on quite similar science. I don’t agree with it but scientifically they’re not far from scientists in any part of the world.”

He then acknowledged that the Swedish authorities had “got a long way to the same effect” without a full lockdown.

In other words, in the type of roundabout waffling way you’d expect from a bumbling boffin, the scientist – dubbed ‘Professor Lockdown’ after he cajoled Boris Johnson into bringing the British economy to a screeching halt – reckons Sweden has essentially coped very well without being forced into any draconian lockdown, thank you very much.

So where was the indignation about how his recommendations f**ked up the economy and made people prisoners in their own homes? It certainly wasn’t to be seen splashed across any British front pages. Indeed, it was hard enough to find much, if any, coverage of this very significant news story on Wednesday.

Is public opinion on Covid-19 being shaped by facts – or ‘terrorized’ by propaganda? Is public opinion on Covid-19 being shaped by facts – or ‘terrorized’ by propaganda? Is public opinion on Covid-19 being shaped by facts – or ‘terrorized’ by propaganda?

It was buried inside the Daily Telegraph on page seven, running across a third of a page or less, with a very accurate subheading stating in clear black and white: “Professor admits radical Scandinavian policy worked as well as British policy of shutting down.”

The evidence from the two countries’ differing approaches has left the professor with little escape route. UK (full lockdown/businesses shut down): 579 Covid-19 deaths per million of population. Sweden (softer restrictions/businesses kept open): 442 deaths per million.

But why make such a startling confession now, when he could have wriggled away by saying it’s too early to assess the data as the disease is still running its course? The cynic in me wonders if Dr Ferguson’s matter-of-fact admission that a full lockdown probably didn’t make a blind bit of difference was fueled by ulterior motives. Seeing as his own reputation is already in tatters, was it a warped act of revenge against Boris Johnson for being forced to fall on his sword after being caught breaking lockdown with his married lover?

Or here’s one for conspiracy theorists: instead of wanting to throw BoJo under the bus, could it have been a case of wanting to hide something else that’s about to come down the track? With America now burning in the wake of the atrocious murder of George Floyd, the confession at this juncture reminds me somewhat of how a British government spin doctor sent out a memo only 30 minutes after the second plane hit the Twin Towers on 9/11 with the cynical recommendation that“it’s now a very good day to get out anything we want to bury.”

At the moment, the biggest accusation they could face is needlessly making a hames (for those of you who aren’t Irish, this means a ‘big mess’) of the economy. Even Sweden’s state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell has since said that, while he regrets not implanting stricter measures to stop the spread of Covid-19, he “still would not have gone as far as other European countries did.”

But the Swede being plagued with self-doubt sounds much more like someone racked with guilt about “what ifs?” like an Oskar Schindler type of character who was pictured crying at the end of the Spielberg film because he was convinced he could’ve done better.

According to Aric Dromi, CEO of the Sweden-based Tempus Motu Think Tank, both the UK and Sweden’s response to Covid-19 is “ego driven and lacking in strategy.” He told me: “Differences in the social structure between the UK and Sweden should have made a bigger impact between the numbers infected. The Swedish economy, for example, far from being protected by remaining open, has still been badly damaged as it relies heavily on exports, despite the lack of a lockdown. For both countries, it represents a human sacrifice on the altar of economics, and it is wholly unacceptable.”

It all reminds me of when John Cleese in the ‘Gourmet Night’ episode of ‘Fawlty Towers’ told guests that there were only three different types of duck on the menu that night – with orange, with cherries or “surprise,” which turned out to be “duck without oranges or cherries.” And if you don’t like duck? As Basil Fawlty quipped, “Ah, well, if you don’t like duck, uhhh, you’re rather stuck.”

At the end of the day, it might still be too early to fully know which was the right way to go, which begs the question: Why did Prof. Ferguson jump the gun and heap such fulsome praise – no pun intended here – on the Swedish model? Whatever way you spin it here, he has, once again, “undermined” the lockdown just like he did “after violating quarantine he designed to meet married lover.”

He might’ve been dubbed “Dr Strangelove” after that embarrassing slip up – but now he just comes across as a nutty professor after his latest confession. These strong words might just come back to haunt BoJo when he next goes before the electorate. With a crippled economy thanks to the draconian measures, he’s going to find the next election will be all about his mishandling of Covid-19, and specifically, “the economy, stupid.”

A major study, the first of its kind, has revealed an association between certain blood types and the likelihood of respiratory failure as a reaction to coronavirus infection. So, genetics could play a role after all.

The study, entitled ‘The ABO blood group locus and a chromosome 3 gene cluster associate with SARS-CoV-2 respiratory failure in an Italian-Spanish genome-wide association analysis’, is a genome-wide association study (GWAS).

A GWAS looks for correlations between DNA markers (tiny mutations scattered throughout a person’s genome) and an outward physical or mental trait of some kind. In this case, that trait was extreme susceptibility to Covid-19, represented by respiratory failure.

As you might have guessed, when a GWAS is involved, ‘correlation’ is the keyword. A GWAS does not search for causation, and therefore it is only the first step in a process to find inherited factors behind physical, mental, or behavioral traits. Moreover, the paper has been published ahead of being peer reviewed on the pre-print server medRxiv, meaning its findings should be taken with a grain of salt.

Nevertheless, this is the first strong indication of genetic factors being at play in reaction to Covid-19.

Which blood type is best?

The study analyzed over eight and a half million mutations in total, and 1,725 Spaniards and 2,090 Italians from seven hotspots of coronavirus (Milan, Monza, Madrid, San Sebastian, and Barcelona) were included in the study. The researchers took efforts to exclude people of foreign ethnic origins so as to maintain as much homogeneity as possible in the database.

The study found that people with type A-positive blood are at higher risk of respiratory failure from Covid-19. Furthermore, those with type O blood are more protected from the virus. This was true for the cohort as a whole, as well as for the cohort when divided into Spain-only and Italy-only.

Many commentators are already asking for similar studies to be done across wider European populations to see if the correlation holds up between more countries.

Natural Gas Prices In Europe Could Be Heading Into Negative Territory

https://oilprice.com/Energy/Natural-Gas/Natural-Gas-Prices-In-Europe-Could-Be-Heading-Into-Negative-Territory.html

The next negative prices in energy contracts could soon be seen in European natural gas prices as lockdowns batter demand while storage capacity for the commodity is running out, analysts and traders told Reuters on Friday. “If it will happen today or next week, it’s hard to say. This weekend we have very low demand and strong supply, so weekend prices might go close to negative,” a European gas trader told Reuters.

Prices at the Dutch TTF hub and the prompt UK wholesale gas prices have recently slumped by 20-30 percent to low single-digits, and there is a risk that they may go negative because gas demand in Europe is still very weak while storage is close to capacity.

UK prices once turned negative in October 2006, when the new Langeled pipeline from Norway boosted supply at a time when UK gas storage capacity was 96 percent full.

Earlier this month, ENN Energy Holdings, one of China’s largest natural gas distributors, said it was not ruling out the possibility that natural gas prices could follow last month’s WTI Crude move and flip to negative because of insufficient storage.

“For natural gas, I have heard about the possibility of negative prices. I also think it could happen,” Wang Yusuo, chairman at ENN Energy Holdings, said at the company’s online shareholders’ meeting, without specifying which natural gas benchmark in which region could turn negative.

The demand and storage situation in the UK looks particularly weak, according to Wood Mackenzie.

“The industry and power sectors account for most of the UK’s summer gas demand. And both of those sectors have been hit hard by the lockdown,” said Hadrien Collineau, a senior analyst with Wood Mackenzie’s gas team.

UK gas storage could be full by early June, Collineau says.

“With UK summer demand expected to be lower than average and with limits on storage capacity, it’s clear that there is very little space for any additional supplies. LNG exporters hoping to place cargoes into the UK market have the most to lose. There simply won’t be any more space.”

Is This The Next Major Market For U.S. LNG?
By Alex Kimani - Jun 02, 2020, 5:00 PM CDT
https://oilprice.com/Energy/Natural-Gas/Is-This-The-Next-Major-Market-For-US-LNG.html

Natural gas producers have had little to cheer about over the past few months after prices sunk to multi-year lows amid a huge oversupply and warm weather. The slowdown could not have come at a worse time for the burgeoning U.S. LNG industry, which has experienced explosive growth over the past decade that put the nation on the cusp of becoming the world's largest LNG exporter ahead of Qatar and Australia. But now, U.S. LNG producers can afford to smile after nabbing a key customer: Turkey.

Turkey's LNG imports from the U.S. tripled during the first quarter to nearly a million tons (48 billion cubic feet of natural gas) as Ankara continued to distance itself from Russian and Iranian natural gas.

Cutting ties with Russia

Gazprom's share in Turkish gas imports tumbled below 10% from 33% during last year's corresponding period, good for a 72% decline. Experts have pointed fingers at the recent political tussle between Ankara and the Kremlin in Syria and Libya as being to blame for the growing bad blood.

Turkey's Energy Market Regulatory Authority has also reported that the country received 2 billion cubic meters of natural gas from Iran during the timeframe, down 15% Y/Y. At the root of the problem is a blown-up natural gas pipeline charged with carrying ~10 billion cubic meters of Iranian natural gas to Turkey annually that has come under repeated attack with the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) claiming responsibility for the latest. Turkey has been reluctant to do repair work on the damaged pipe and has even declined Iran's offer for assistance.

Turkey has also dramatically ramped up its LNG imports from Azeri over the past few months, receiving 924,28 million cubic meters of Azerbaijan natural gas in March, good for nearly a quarter of its nat gas imports for the month.

Boon for U.S. LNG

The increasing U.S. LNG exports to Turkey certainly is a welcome development.

EIA data shows that the U.S. exported 2,836,327 million cubic feet of natural gas and another 1,819,386 cubic feet of LNG in 2019, compared to 1,497,771 cubic feet of natural gas and just 16,255 of LNG back in 2014.

Exports to Turkey in 2019 amounted to 30,075 million cubic feet, representing a mere 0.7 percent of total exports.

However, the current clip of Turkish exports of nearly 50 billion cubic feet per quarter means that Turkey is set to become a top-five natural gas customer for the United States after Canada, Mexico, South Korea, and Japan.

Politics aside, low LNG prices appear to be behind Turkey's decision to dump Russia and Iran.

Asian spot prices for liquefied natural gas recently dipped to a record low of less than $2 per mmBtu due to lackluster demand as economies the world over continued being on lockdown. Azerbaijan's state energy company SOCAR has been willing to renegotiate its replacement contracts with Turkey to reflect the prevailing low prices, something Gazprom has been dragging its feet on. For the first time, Turkey's LNG imports are now outpacing purchases of natural gas through pipelines.

Flooded Markets

Unfortunately, the overall natural gas outlook remains rather bleak.

After a brief rally, natural gas prices have resumed their downtrend, with the August contract poised to test the June contract lows at $1.55 per mmBtu as the markets remain oversupplied with the commodity. LNG producers have been storing excess inventories in the seas, with fears that a price war between Qatar, Australia, and the U.S. could trigger an even worse selloff.

But maybe the supply overhang will not last much longer.

U.S. natural gas exports declined to 5.6 billion cubic feet per day in the final week of May after averaging 6.7 Bcf per day during the first three weeks. This marked the lowest level of LNG feed gas deliveries in eight months, despite the commissioning of an additional 2.0 Bcf/d baseload of new liquefaction capacity over this period.

Meanwhile, warmer than normal weather in the midwest and east coast is expected to drive up cooling demand, while stronger manufacturing as economies gradually re-open is likely to support demand.

Syrian stock market halts trading for Assad cousin’s company
The commission said its measure aims to protect shareholders and that the suspension would last until further notice. It did not elaborate.

BEIRUT: Syria’s stock market on Tuesday suspended trading for the largest cellular company in the country, owned by a cousin of the president and one of Syria’s richest businessmen.

The decision by the Syrian Commission of Financial Markets and Securities marked another development in a deepening financial dispute within the Assad family, which has ruled Syria for five decades. The company, Syriatel, is one of the country’s largest employers, with thousands of staff and 11 million subscribers.

The commission said its measure aims to protect shareholders and that the suspension would last until further notice. It did not elaborate.

The businessman, Rami Makhlouf, a maternal cousin of President Bashar Assad, said in an online posting after the decision late on Monday that the situation was a “farce.” He said that over the past 10 years, 70% of the company’s profits were spent on charity.

“No one will be able to prevent this money from reaching” those in need, he vowed.

Last month, a Syrian court imposed a travel ban on Makhlouf until a dispute over outstanding financial dues is settled. The ban was one in a recent quick succession of government measures against Makhlouf, including confiscating his assets and those of his wife and children, and warning that more financial claims would be made against the man once believed to be at the heart of the economy of Syria.

Makhlouf’s latest posting is in line with what has been an unusually widely publicized family rift. He has defiantly challenged the financial claims made against him, saying they are unjust and called for Assad to be an arbiter.

Assad has made no public statements about the affair — the most visible split in the tight-knit family since Assad succeeded his father in 2000.

A telecommunications regulatory body had said Makhlouf owes the government some $180 million in outstanding operational fees. Makhlouf challenged the claims that Syriatel owed the state any money in statements and videos posted online.

Syria, already under Western sanctions, is entering a new phase of economic hardship, its currency in a down spiral that sent prices of basic commodities soaring. Economic activity is also being hurt by restrictions imposed to combat the coronavirus, following austerity measures taken during the war that has displaced nearly half the population.

Divide & conquer, but elsewhere: Democrats cheer Mattis, who advocated staying in Syria, after he likens Trump to Nazis
4 Jun, 2020 01:20
https://www.rt.com/usa/490700-mattis-denounce-trump-democrats/

US President Donald Trump’s first defense secretary, General Jim Mattis, is the new hero of the Democrats, after he denounced Trump as a threat to the Constitution and compared him to the Nazis.

The US military instructed troops landing in Normandy that the Nazis sought to destroy America with the slogan “Divide and Conquer,” which was to be met with “In Union there is Strength,” Mattis wrote in a diatribe published by the Atlantic on Wednesday, adding that Trump is the first president in his lifetime “who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead, he tries to divide us.”

Denouncing Trump’s “abuse of executive authority that we witnessed in Lafayette Square,” – presumably referring to Monday’s clearing of the demonstrators before the president visited the church damaged in the riots the evening before – Mattis argued that the military violated the constitutional rights of Americans to “provide a bizarre photo op for the elected commander-in-chief, with military leadership standing alongside.”

Mattis insisted that the protests across America are “defined by tens of thousands of people of conscience who are insisting that we live up to our values” and that Americans “must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers.”

This full-throated endorsement of the Democrat narrative about the unrest earned Mattis accolades from the mainstream media, prominent Democrats and members of the online #Resistance.

It also drew derision from Trump sympathizers, who brought up the fact that he served Trump as defense secretary for two of the “three years without mature leadership” he writes of now, and resigned only because Trump ordered a withdrawal from Syria.

“You see, it's only acceptable to use [the] military for unending Middle East wars or state-sponsored coups,” wrote journalist Amber Athey.

Even leftist journalists and activists pointed out that Mattis – nicknamed ‘Mad Dog’ for his role in the destruction of the Iraqi city of Fallujah – hardly had a moral leg to stand on in this instance.

— Eric Levitz (@EricLevitz) June 3, 2020

Retired Marine bomb tech Johnny Joey Jones, who served under Mattis, offered a more complex take on the general’s feud with Trump, noting that he admired both men for different reasons.

Mattis “ain’t listening” to criticism, Jones warned Trump supporters, because he has “a set of ideals and he’s adhering to them... to a fault.”

“Know what YOU believe and WHY, and don’t let any one person overshadow it or represent it for you. After all, they’re just people,” he said.

I hated seeing Trump tweet about irrelevant things and spew personal insults... I hate seeing Mattis take now to politics. What’s the lesson? Know what YOU believe and WHY, and don’t let any one person overshadow it or represent it for you. After all, they’re just people
— Johnny (Joey) Jones (@Johnny_Joey) June 3, 2020

Mattis’ denunciation of Trump comes a day after retired US Navy Admiral Mike Mullen – chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under George W. Bush and Barack Obama – also took to the pages of the Atlantic to object to involving the military in the riots.

“I am not convinced that the conditions on our streets, as bad as they are, have risen to the level that justifies a heavy reliance on military troops,” Mullen wrote. He also cited the Lafayette Square photo-op as what pushed him over the edge.

The mainstream media had reported that police and the guard used tear gas against entirely peaceful demonstrators so Trump could walk to St. John’s Church for a photo opportunity. The US Park Police and the White House said that the security line was attacked with brick and frozen water bottles, and used pepper pellets – not gas – to move the demonstrators a block away, as per earlier instructions from Attorney General William Barr.

Around 1,600 active duty troops were summoned to the capital on Monday and placed on high alert, but have not been deployed to the streets. Nor has Trump invoked the Insurrection Act, though his spokeswoman said on Wednesday he wanted to keep it as an option if unrest flares up again.

Tuesday’s demonstrations in Washington, DC were entirely peaceful, unlike in other cities – such as New York – where governors decided not to deploy the National Guard to help the police.

Mike Pompeo previews likely visa, financial sanctions against ICC
The Trump administration previously rescinded ICC Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda’s visa for traveling to the US and has explicitly threatened other measures, including sanctions.

JUNE 2, 2020 17:48

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday alluded to new US measures against the International Criminal Court “in the coming days,” dropping hints that the retaliation could go beyond revoking visas to financial penalties.

In an interview with the American Enterprise Institute, he said, “You’ll see in the coming days a series of announcements not just from the State Department, from all across the United States government, that attempt to push back against what the ICC is up to.”

“I think that the ICC and the world will see that we are determined to prevent having Americans and our friends and allies in Israel and elsewhere hauled in by this corrupt ICC,” Pompeo said.

The Trump administration previously rescinded ICC Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda’s visa for traveling to the US and has explicitly threatened other measures, including sanctions.

It is unclear how far the potential US financial moves might extend, whether only to accounts within the US or also to pressing European allies regarding ICC personnel.

Both past and expected future measures against ICC personnel come in response to its position against the US for alleged torture of detainees in Afghanistan in 2003-2004, as well as Bensouda’s push for a full criminal war crimes probe of Israelis regarding the settlement enterprise and the 2014 Gaza war.

The timing also connects the ICC’s move to a potential decision by Israel, supported by the US, to annex portions of the West Bank in July.
Pompeo emphasized that neither the US nor Israel are parties to the Rome Statute that established the court.

The secretary of state has also faced bipartisan pressure to defend Israel from any ICC probe. Hundreds of legislators from both the Senate and the House of Representatives sent a letter in mid-May, calling on Pompeo to prevent “politicization” and “misuse” of the ICC against Israel.

Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Australia, Austria, Brazil and Uganda all filed legal briefs with the ICC Pre-Trial Chamber, asking it to veto Bensouda’s decision to move forward against Israel.

That decision is not expected before July and could extend months into the future, as the judges follow diplomatic reactions to any potential Israeli annexation move.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called the ICC a “rare strategic threat” and blasted the ICC as the latest example of international organizations biased against Israel.

The ICC prosecution has responded that it is objective and has pointed out that it is also probing Hamas for war crimes. The ICC prosecution also said its decision was not rushed, but came after more than five years of receiving information from both sides.

By comparison, the US case is far more advanced than the Israeli case.

Bensouda announced she was ready to move against the US in 2017. The last two plus years have seen multiple contrary ICC court decisions for and against a full war crimes probe until March, when the ICC’s top Appeals Chamber gave the final green light for the case to go forward.

That decision propelled a probe against the US for seemingly “less serious” crimes like torture, appearing to signal a greater likelihood that the ICC will approve a probe against Israel relating to the deaths of 2,100 Palestinians (of which 50-80% were civilians) in 2014.

At the same time, no ICC court has ruled against Israel yet, and even if the ICC Pre-Trial Chamber rules against Israel, it could send the issue to the Appeals Chamber, which could take more time to handle the issue.

Some in Israel hope this process could draw things out past when Bensouda steps down in June 2021, which may provide a chance to get a more favorable stance from her successor.

Saudi Arabia, Israel in secret talks through US mediation over al-Aqsa Mosque: Report
Monday, 01 June 2020 3:52 PM

Saudi Arabia and the Israeli regime have reportedly been conducting clandestine talks over the past few months through American mediation about the inclusion of the kingdom’s representatives in the Islamic Waqf (Endowment) Council – a religious body that oversees the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the occupied Old City of Jerusalem al-Quds.

Top anonymous Saudi diplomats told Hebrew-language daily Israel Hayom that Riyadh and Tel Aviv have been engaged in the discussions since last December, and a limited negotiating team of senior diplomats and security officials from Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United States has been involved in the matter.

The diplomats further noted that the talks are part of the contacts to advance the controversial plan laid out by US President Donald Trump on the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict, dubbed ‘the deal of century.’

The so-called peace plan envisions Jerusalem al-Quds as “Israel’s undivided capital” and allows the Tel Aviv regime to annex settlements in the occupied West Bank and the Jordan Valley. The plan also denies Palestinian refugees the right of return to their homeland, among other controversial terms.

Trump’s plan has triggered waves of protest rallies around the globe.

According to a senior Saudi diplomats, Jordanians – who have a special and exclusive status in managing the Islamic Waqf Council – first adamantly objected to any change in the council's composition, but later softened their position to allow Saudi presence.

The report came only a day after dozens of extremist Israeli settlers stormed the al-Aqsa Mosque compound under the protection of regime forces, only a few hours after the sacred site was reopened following more than two months of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Around 105 Jewish settlers [led by fanatic rabbi Yehudah Glick] have entered the compound since early morning under protection of Israeli police,” Omar Kiswani, director of al-Aqsa Mosque, told Turkey’s official Anadolu news agency on Sunday.

He said the move “came to upset the worshippers” in the wake of the mosque reopening for prayers.

On May 21, Yemen Scholars Association, in a statement, condemned attempts by a number of Arab states to normalize relations with the Israeli regime, holding Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates responsible for any negative repercussions of such bids.

The group stressed the Islamic nature of al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem al-Quds, emphasizing that Zionists are neither welcome there nor have the right to occupy even an iota of the places.

It stressed the need for solid support for resistance movements in Palestine and Lebanon in the face of the Zionist threat.

The association then called for the issuance of a fatwa (religious decree), which prohibits and condemns rapprochement with the Zionists, conclusion of deals with their criminal leaders and participation in bilateral conferences.

米国がイスラエルに西岸併合を大幅に遅らせるよう要請 黒人殺害事件

トランプ大統領の娘婿でユダヤ人のクシュネがネタンヤフ首相に電話を入れ、米国政府が現在、数多くの問題に直面しているため、7月1日に予定している西岸併合を大幅に遅らせるよう要請した。

・・・国内で大々的な武力鎮圧を始めるところだから、ユダヤのことまで手が回らない。しばらく静かにしていてくれ、という話です。インド・太平洋で米国空母4隻を稼働させることができない状態で、二正面で大々的に武力衝突してくれれば、国際政治はもっと面白くなるのに、つまんな~い(笑)。

トランプが、自由と平等を求める国民を血祭りに上げるタイミングで、中国は涼しい顔をして香港とウイグルを押さえ込み、米中とも相手にとり都合の悪いことには触れないということで手打ちをし、時は過ぎていくのでしょう。



Report: Netanyahu discusses annexation plans with Kushner, top diplomatic envoys
According to Hebrew media sources, Kushner and White House officials urged Netanyahu 'to greatly slow the process' of initiating Israeli annexation plans over West Bank territory

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly held talks with White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, along with US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, over West Bank annexation plans on Monday, according to Hebrew-language broadcaster Channel 13.

Israel's Ambassador to Washington, Ron Dermer, was also reportedly included in the conversation.

During the discussion, according to Hebrew media sources, Kushner and White House officials urged Netanyahu “to greatly slow the process” of initiating Israeli annexation plans over West Bank territory, citing a number of challenges currently occupying the administration's attention at the moment.

Angry and sometimes violent protests have broken out across major cities across the US in recent days over the police killing of George Floyd, an unarmed African-American man in Minneapolis. More than 100,000 coronavirus fatalities across the country have also presented unprecedented challenges for the Trump administration.

The talks came just hours after Israel Defense Minister Benny Gantz ordered the country's top military general to start preparing plans involving West Bank annexation.

Gantz said he instructed IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Aviv Kochavi to also provide plans on how to manage various Palestinian responses if Israel ultimately decides to extend its sovereignty into parts of the West Bank.

Speaking at his Blue and White party faction meeting, Gantz said that both he and the premier are in touch with the Trump administration on how to best execute the White House's vision for Middle East peace.

Under Israel's current government coalition agreement, moves to carry out Israel's annexation plans can begin after July 1.

Under the plan, Israel is given a green light to apply its sovereignty to a number of West Bank areas, including the Jordan Valley, in exchange for land swaps mostly located in the Negev desert.

Gantz voiced his approval for the plan at Monday's meeting, saying that the US "Peace to Prosperity" plan was Israel's best opportunity to finally establish its "permanent borders."

At the same time, Gantz stressed the importance of maintaining ties with Israel's neighbors and regional states.

‘Police will not break into homes; children will not be microchipped’
Netanyahu and Gantz clarify draft of coronavirus legislation.

Police will not be able to break into private homes, and children won’t be microchipped, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made clear on Monday during his Likud faction meeting.

“It is important to dispel some of the fake news that has appeared in the media,” Netanyahu said. “I have now spoken with the public security minister, and we have unequivocally agreed that we will not allow police to break into the homes of Israeli citizens without a warrant.

“We will find the right balance between the need to enforce isolation guidelines and the need to protect the rights of individuals and the civil liberties of Israeli citizens,” he continued. “We are aware that in the public there is a thought that we will unravel this balance. We have not done so until now, and we will not do so in the future.”

Mainstream and social media erupted late Sunday after the government released a memorandum of the Coronavirus Bill that, if passed, would turn into law a set of emergency coronavirus regulations. The draft appeared to be infringing on individual rights, including allowing police forces unlimited authority and prohibiting demonstrations.

The legislation is meant to grant the government special powers to deal with a predicted emergency second wave of the coronavirus for 45 days, with the Knesset able to extend the emergency period every 30 days for up to 10 months.

“This memorandum proposed to authorize the government, in primary legislation, to enact regulations for active restrictions on the population in the private and public spheres in a variety of areas in life, in accordance with the areas currently regulated by the Emergency Regulations,” a synopsis of the memorandum reads on the government’s website.

The draft appeared to grant powers to the government to decide upon new emergency measures without Knesset approval.
The bill will be brought to its first votes next week. It is expected to be challenged in the Supreme Court.

Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz told his Blue and White faction on Sunday that the Justice Ministry was working on redefining the government’s emergency measures for the fight against the coronavirus.

“We will make sure that the directives will not be draconian,” Gantz said. “Police will not conduct intrusive searches. The right to protest will not be harmed, nor will the courts, and there will be proper parliamentary oversight.”

He said the directives would be set for a limited period of time. New legislation would be drafted that will have to meet criteria to ensure that the right to privacy will be maintained.

“There will be a significant improvement in the rules and directives from what was in place before,” he said. “I heard that the public is worried that we will be going to dark places. We will not let individual rights be harmed.”

In a statement he released earlier, Gantz said “Israeli democracy is stronger that the coronavirus, and it will stay that way.”

Justice Minister Avi Nissenkorn, a member of Gantz’s Blue and White Party, sent a similar message on Twitter Sunday, confirming that, "In the coming days, we will continue our hard work to ensure that the legislation is effective but proportionate.”

“In the coming days, we will continue our hard work to ensure that the legislation is effective but proportionate,” he continued.

Netanyahu told Likud that “we have an integrated mission – to restore discipline to stop the geometrical spread of the disease and to open the economy and add jobs. We will find the right balance between the need to enforce isolation guidelines and the need to maintain individual austerity.”

But he did stress the need to enforce regulations: “The virus doesn't spread on its own,” the prime minister said. “It is carried by humans and transmitted from person to person by sneezing or coughing or contact. As the distance decreases and contact increases, the virus grows and spreads.”

Finally, he also used the platform to “dispel an urban legend that we intend to plant censors in children.”

In early May, the Hebrew website Ynet reported that the prime minister proposed microchipping children who return to schools as the coronavirus lockdown was lifted.

While speaking at a press conference, Netanyahu suggested that the Health Ministry use new technology to help Israel adjust to its new routine as the state lifted the coronavirus lockdown, including potentially sensors.

"For instance, every person, every kid – I want it on kids first – would have a sensor that would sound an alarm when you get too close, like the ones on cars," the prime minister said at the press conference. However, on Monday, he clarified: “Conspiracy theories sometimes reach delusional places. We talked about a toy for kids, a voluntary bracelet that anyone could choose to wear.”

In his faction meeting, MK Naftali Bennett told his Yamina faction that the Health Ministry was making mistakes by not using more advanced tests for the virus. He warned against taking more steps to prevent a second wave of the virus that could harm the economy.
"Another lockdown would be a death knell for businesses that are just starting to raise their heads," Bennett said. "We should not be harming the income of the private sector again."

ホワイトハウス周辺で発生したデモを受け、トランプ大統領が一時、地下壕に避難していたことわかった

(CNN) 米国のトランプ大統領がホワイトハウスの外で発生した抗議デモを受けて、地下壕(ごう)に一時退避していたことが1日までにわかった。ホワイトハウス当局者と法執行機関の情報筋が明らかにした。

警官のひざで首を押さえつけられ黒人男性のジョージ・フロイドさんが死亡したことを受けて、ホワイトハウスの周辺で5月29日、デモ参加者が集まっていた。

トランプ大統領は1時間足らずの間、地下壕におり、その後、上階に移動した。メラニア夫人や息子のバロンさんも地下壕に避難したという。

トランプ大統領は翌30日、ホワイトハウスの外で行われた昨晩のデモに対処したシークレットサービス(大統領警護隊)をたたえた。

デモ終了からわずか数時間後、トランプ大統領は自身は安全だと表明したほか、民主党市長を非難。トランプ氏はまた支持者に対し、対抗するためのデモを夜に実施するため集合するよう呼びかけも行っていた。

トランプ大統領は一連のツイートで、シークレットサービスを称賛したほか、門の内側には犬や武器が待ち構えていたなどとも指摘した。

【AFP=時事】(更新、写真追加)米首都ワシントンのホワイトハウス(White House)近くで5月31日、警察の過剰な力の行使によって非武装の黒人男性が死亡したことへの抗議デモが再び行われ、夜になってデモ隊の一部と警察が衝突して催涙弾が発射された。これに先立ち、ミュリエル・バウザー(Muriel Bowser)市長が同日午後11時~翌6月1日午前6時(日本時間6月1日正午~午後7時)の外出禁止令を発令し、州兵の動員を発表していた。

 ホワイトハウス前には機動隊が列をつくり、近くの公園に結集したデモ隊と対峙(たいじ)していたが、現場のAFP記者によると、夜になって警察とデモ隊の間で小競り合いが発生。警察が催涙弾や催涙スプレー、閃光(せんこう)発音筒を用いてデモ隊を解散させようと試みている。デモ隊の中には付近で火をたいたり、建物に落書きをしたりしていた者たちがいた。

 ミネソタ州ミネアポリス(Minneapolis)で黒人男性ジョージ・フロイド(George Floyd)さんが警官に膝で首を押さえつけられて死亡した事件に対する抗議行動は、全米に拡大し、6夜目に突入。各地でデモ隊と警察との小競り合いや、暴徒による店舗の略奪が起きている。ニューヨークやマイアミでも大規模なデモが発生。発端の事件が起きたミネアポリスのほか、ロサンゼルスやヒューストン(Houston)にも夜間外出禁止令が出ている。

 米紙ニューヨーク・タイムズ(New York Times)によると、ドナルド・トランプ(Donald Trump)大統領は29日夜、ホワイトハウス前で数百人のデモ隊が抗議していた際、大統領警護隊(シークレットサービス、USSS)の判断でホワイトハウス地下にある大統領危機管理センターに退避していたという。



トランプは各州知事に電話をかけまくり、「何をやっているんだ。一刻も早く暴徒を圧倒しろ。片っ端から逮捕し、牢屋に10年ぶちこんどけ!」と怒鳴りつけた。

Trump tells governors to ‘DOMINATE’ rioters in scathing phone call – report
1 Jun, 2020 17:00
https://www.rt.com/usa/490427-trump-governors-dominate-riots/

President Donald Trump has reportedly called on governors to step up their actions against rioters, urging them to use more force and “dominate” the violent mobs besieging America’s cities.

Hordes of rioters and arsonists surrounded the White House on Sunday night, setting fire to the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church nearby and desecrating national landmarks. Similar scenes were on display in dozens of major American cities, and the president was, for most of the night, silent.

Now, Trump has reportedly demanded that governors use a heavier hand in quashing the unrest. “You have to dominate, if you don’t dominate you’re wasting your time,” he said in a phone call with the governors on Monday, according to CBS News.

JUST IN: President Trump unloads on the nation's governors on a call, calls on them to step up enforcement: "You have to dominate, if you don’t dominate you’re wasting your time. They’re going to run over you, you’re going to look like a bunch of jerks. You have to dominate."
— Ed O'Keefe (@edokeefe) June 1, 2020

They’re going to run over you, you’re going to look like a bunch of jerks. You have to dominate.

“You’ve got to arrest people, you have to track people, you have to put them in jail for 10 years and you’ll never see this stuff again,” he reportedly added. “We have all the resources – it’s not like we don’t have the resources. So, I don’t know what you’re doing.”

‘Kosherati’: Gulf media heralds UAE's first kosher food delivery
‘Kosherati” is a blend of the words ‘kosher’ and ‘Emirati.' The article claims there are only 200 Jews in the UAE, but there are many Jewish visitors.

A kosher catering service in Dubai is getting lots of exposure as Gulf commentators herald it as the first of its kind in the Gulf region.

Saudi Arabia’s Al-Arabiya reported that the Jewish community in the United Arab Emirates now has its own kosher food service, the first in the constitutional monarchy.

It said that the initiative came in the wake of more Jewish travelers coming to the Gulf last year during events for the “Year of Tolerance” and a realization that kosher food was needed.

Now, the blend of local cuisine and kosher food has its own name: Kosherati.

“Longtime Dubai resident Elli Kriel, who had provided kosher food to Jewish travelers informally over the years, noticed an increase in requests in the run-up to the Year of Tolerance,” the report said. The result was “Elli’s Kosher Kitchen,” a delivery and catering service.

The service were actually launched in February 2019; the article notes that since then, many people have sought it out. The kosher kitchen was highlighted last year with lists of some of the dishes available.

One article on Yeah That’s Kosher noted that there was a quinoa salad and fettuccine with roast garlic as well as crispy fish sticks.

The highlighting of the kosher service is part of growing recognition of the Jewish community in the Gulf over the years. Al-Arabiya says there is a new interfaith complex in Abu Dhabi and a rabbi for the Emirates. It says many customers are French or American who travel through or remain in the Gulf.


However, the COVID-19 pandemic and resultant lockdowns have changed the ability for people to travel to the area. Kriel was quoted in Al-Arabiya as saying that since the travel bans, “my customers are mainly expats and Emiratis living in Dubai.”

Her menu includes a cuisine that combines kosher dishes and local foods for Ramadan. One tweet shows challah and rugelach, and a combination of Emirati cuisine and Jewish foods from around the region.

Kriel said that she refers to the food as ‘kosherati” a blend of the words ‘kosher’ and ‘Emirati.’ The article claims there are only 200 Jews in the UAE. Elli’s Kosher Kitchen is on Twitter and is getting support from locals.

In recent years, there has been more recognition of the Jewish community and Jewish issues in the Gulf. World Jewish Congress President Ron Lauder recently penned a piece in Arab News based in Riyadh, the first of its kind.

日系半導体部材が現地生産へ 韓国国産化に対応、業界新常態に

いつの間にか、日本企業が韓国に新規進出していました(´・ω・`)



日系半導体部材が現地生産へ 韓国国産化に対応、業界新常態に
2020/05/28
https://www.nna.jp/news/show/2045850?id=2045850

韓国での現地生産に乗り出す日本の半導体部材メーカーが増えている。昨年には関東電化工業(東京都千代田区)が韓国工場での生産を開始したのに続き、太陽ホールディングス(同豊島区)もこのほど工場建設を発表した。日本政府が昨年7月に輸出管理の厳格化を発表して以来、韓国ではサプライチェーン(供給網)を国内で完結させようとする機運が高まっている。このため、縛りの多い輸出から現地生産に切り替える動きは今後も続く見通しで、この供給網の再編が日系関連メーカーの「新常態(ニューノーマル)」となりつつあるようだ。

プリント配線板(PWB)部材メーカー大手の太陽ホールディングスは18日、半導体パッケージ基板向けのドライフィルム型ソルダーレジストを韓国で生産すると発表した。6月に新子会社「太陽アドバンスドマテリアル」を設立し、年400万平方メートルの生産能力を持つ工場を新設する。

ドライフィルム型は、細かい回路パターンの形成に適しているのが特長で、電装化が進む自動車やスマートフォンなどのIT機器での需要拡大が見込まれる。半導体とスマホの世界大手サムスン電子や、自動運転車の開発に力を入れる完成車大手・現代自動車のお膝元での現地生産を通じ、将来の需要確保を目指す。

ドライフィルム型ソルダーレジストで8~9割の世界シェアを持つ太陽ホールディングスはこれまで、北九州工場で生産し、輸出していた。しかし、日本政府による韓国向け輸出の厳格化を受け、韓国政府が国内生産や調達先の多角化などサプライチェーンの見直しに取り掛かったため、風向きが変わった。

同社の広報担当者は「(日韓関係の悪化で)韓国向け輸出に影響が出ている。事業継続計画(BCP)の観点からも、現地生産が必要と判断した」と述べた。

■日韓対立後に顕著化

実際に、日系半導体部材メーカーによる現地生産の動きは、日韓対立が深刻化した昨年下半期から顕著になっている。

関東電化工業は、忠清南道天安市で硫化カルボニルの製造を開始した。半導体の前工程で使われる特殊なガスで、それまで韓国では生産されておらず、韓国企業は全量を輸入に頼っていた。さらに、天安工場内に技術サポートセンターを開設し、開発面でも顧客対応能力を高める計画もある。

東ソー(東京都港区)は、子会社の東ソー・クォーツを通じて年内に半導体装置向け石英ガラスの製造を手掛ける現法を設立し、2021年の量産を目指している。

化学メーカーのADEKA(東京都荒川区)も、鹿島工場(茨城県神栖市)で生産している高誘電材料「High―K材料」など一部の半導体材料を「現地生産し、DRAM向け供給を拡大していく」(同社広報担当者)方針という。

このほか、東京エレクトロン(東京都港区)が、サムスン電子の平沢工場(京畿道)近くに「平沢テクニカルセンター」を新設するなど、顧客サポートを強化する動きもみられる。

■韓国「国内生産は歓迎」

日系企業による現地生産の加速は、韓国企業にとっても喜ばしい。国産化が成功したとしても、歩留まりの低下の懸念は根強く、「高品質が保証された日本製を使い続けたいというのが本音」(半導体業界の関係者)だからだ。関東電化工業の広報担当者は「昨年の天安工場の稼働時に、顧客の韓国企業から現地生産を歓迎された」と話した。

日本への依存度を下げたい韓国政府も、日系企業による「国内生産」は容認しているもよう。韓国半導体産業協会の安基鉉(アン・ギヒョン)常務は「韓国政府は日本政府の対応を通じ、サプライチェーンのローカライゼーション(地域化)の必要性を痛感したが、目指しているのは日系企業からの調達をゼロにする『脱・日本』ではない」とみる。

半導体部材メーカーの一連の動きは、BCPへの対応と顧客満足度の向上を目指したい日系企業と、サプライチェーンの再構築を目指す韓国企業・政府の利害一致が最大の要因と言えそうだ。
