Hungary’s Jewish group expels rabbi who said Zionism causing new Holocaust
It’s an unusual development for Eastern and Central Europe, where leaders of Jewish communities are rarely expelled and seldom express acrimonious public criticism of Israel.

Hungary’s largest Jewish group expelled a rabbi who has accused Israel of appropriating the money of Holocaust victims and putting Diaspora Jews in danger.

The rabbinical council of the Mazsihisz umbrella announced in a letter to Israeli Ambassador Yacov Hadas-Handelsman that it was “terminating its relationship” with Rabbi Gabor Finali. The letter said it was “an indefinite suspension” of Finali, 43, who since 2017 has served as the resident rabbi of a Mazsihisz-affiliated congregation, the Ohel Avraham Synagogue in Budapest.

It’s an unusual development for Eastern and Central Europe, where leaders of Jewish communities are rarely expelled and seldom express acrimonious public criticism of Israel.

The most controversial remarks by Finali, who supports multiple left-wing causes, came in July on his Facebook page.

“Israel took all the benefits and most of the compensation from Germany for the death and suffering of our relatives,” he wrote. “The chaos that Israel has been causing since 1948 is the reason for most, if not all, attacks on Jews in the Diaspora. The money spent on security until recently (2018) was because we suffer the consequences, we’re the soft targets … Herzl’s mission failed because it didn’t stop the Holocaust, but soon it will lead to a new one.”

Finali apologized for and retracted the post, but Mazsihisz in its letter to the ambassador last week said it was cutting its ties with the rabbi because he “is more loyal in his writings to the enemies of Israel than to Israel.”

Finali belongs to the Neolog denomination of Judaism, a stream that evolved in Central Europe in the 19th century and is similar to Masorti, or Conservative, Judaism.

In a 2018 interview with the Szombat Jewish magazine, Finali said: “The state of Israel lives and thrives thanks to God, I wholeheartedly support its existence,” but added he doesn’t consider it to be “a pure virgin.”

・・・全くもって正論ですが、このラビ(43歳)は、ハンガリーのユダヤ教共同体から追放処分を受けた。多様な意見を認めて懐の深さを示す絶好のチャンスだったのに、ユダヤ教徒の偏狭な自己正当化と言論弾圧体質をさらけ出してしまいました(笑)。

What do Jewish voters need to know about Kamala Harris?
Harris is seen as a strong supporter with ties to AIPAC, the country’s largest pro-Israel lobby, and unlike some Democrats has not broached the idea of conditioning aid to Israel.

https://www.jpost.com/diaspora/what-do-jewish-voters-need-to-know-about-kamala-harris-638296

It’s official: Kamala Harris is Joe Biden’s choice for vice president.

The California senator, who made history Tuesday as the first Black woman to join a major party presidential ticket, is still in her first term. But during several years in public office, the 55-year-old lawmaker’s outspoken opinions on a range of issues and her presidential run have given Jewish voters plenty to scrutinize.

She is also married to Jewish lawyer Douglas Emhoff, who would become the country’s first Jewish second husband.

As a senator, Harris has been aligned with Biden on Israel: She is seen as a strong supporter with ties to AIPAC, the country’s largest pro-Israel lobby, and unlike some Democrats has not broached the idea of conditioning aid to Israel to influence its policies. During her presidential run, Harris separated herself somewhat from even the mainstream moderates in the pack, firmly opposing the idea of condemnatory UN votes or even strong public criticism aimed at swaying Israeli policy.

While the more liberal pro-Israel group J Street has endorsed the centrist Biden, who also has committed to keeping spats with Israel private and the idea of not allowing any “daylight” between the US and Israel in diplomatic terms, it has not backed Harris. J Street, which lobbies for a two-state solution, has endorsed more than half of Senate Democrats.

However, Harris has said that she would rejoin the Iran nuclear deal, an agreement that conservative Jews despise over its aid to Iran, a regime that routinely calls for Israel’s destruction. That keeps her aligned with Biden, who was part of the Obama administration that brokered the 2015 agreement over vehement objections by Israel.

“This nuclear deal is not perfect, but it is certainly the best existing tool we have to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons and avoid a disastrous military conflict in the Middle East,” Harris wrote in a statement in 2018 after Trump pulled the US out of the deal. “As the international community and the Administration’s own national security team has confirmed multiple times, Iran remains in compliance with the deal. In the absence of an Iranian violation, it is reckless to break this agreement without presenting any plan on how to move forward.”

Harris, previously the attorney general of California, is a self-described progressive who’s also known for being “tough on crime” — a quality that has hurt her standing among other progressives but could be seen as a plus by Jewish Americans rattled by a series of historic antisemitic attacks during the past few years, including the shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that killed 11 in 2018.

As San Francisco’s district attorney, Harris created a hate crimes unit, and as attorney general, she reported in 2012 that anti-Jewish hate crimes were the most commonplace religion-based hate crime in California.

In the Senate, she has urged better hate crime reporting and helped pass a resolution that named religious institutions as possible targets of hate crimes.

Outside of politics, Harris’ husband Douglas Emhoff has two Jewish children from a previous marriage — and often cheerleads for his wife on Twitter.

米国フランス・イスラエルが要求する政治改革はきれい事 ヒズボラ排除が主目的 レバノン

マクロンはレバノン政界有力者に対し、政治改革の期限を3週間と指示した(9月には新体制で始動させたいという意向)。

大統領の早期退任、議会の早期解散は求めず(つまりヒズボラ優勢の国会勢力図に何ら変化は求めないが)、ヒズボラ抜きの組閣を条件とした。ひたすら「現政権潰し」を執拗に叫んでいた米国、イスラエルの政策と一致している。

次期首相としてサアド・アル・ハリーリー前首相を推薦。米国、フランス、エジプト、UAEは賛成。歴史的にアル・ハリーリーを推してきたサウジは今回、「中立的な立場」である(注:サウジがハリーリーをサウジに呼び出し、憲法違反の首相辞任表明をさせて失敗した事件があり、それ以来、両者の関係は切れている)。サウジの役割を縮小し、UAEの役割を増やす米国の政策に沿っている。

・・・ということなのだが、アル・ハリーリーは狭い身内以外に支持者の広がりがなく、政治折衝が下手な気の小さな男で、過去の首相在任中の無能ぶりといったらなく、何度も退任に追い込まれた無様な経歴の持ち主。腐敗の評判だったら現内閣に負けない。

本業が土建屋だから、米国に逆らわず、大規模再開発の陣頭指揮さえできればそれでいい、くらいの感覚で人選されたのでないか。

ベイルート港再建計画はもうできている コロナ不況からの脱出策?

ベイルート港の右端(陸が北方向に曲がっている箇所)に、ベイルート川という小さなドブ川が南から海に向かって走っているのだが、その西岸が東ベイルートで、豪奢な建物が並んでいる(いた)。川の東岸は、20世紀初頭にトルコから難民として押し寄せたアルメニア人の地区で、小さな家がごちゃごちゃ集結している(いた)。

爆破事件でアルメニア人地区も吹き飛んでいるので、個人的に気にしていたのだが、再建計画では、アルメニア人から所有権を取り上げて追い出し、拡張した港として再開発するそうだ。

イスラエルはアゼルバイジャンと仲が良く、アルメニアとは仲が悪いので、アルメニア人が不幸になっても全然困らない。むしろ都合が良い。

私案という位置づけながら、ほかにもごちゃごちゃ書いてある。

25年契約のBOT(Built-Operate-Transfer)方式で港運営を委託する入札は既に行われているそうで、中国とUAEが名乗りを上げているとのこと。

2011年にシリア戦が始まったとき、まだどこも壊れていないのに、米国陣営はまず最初に「シリア再建国際会議」を開き、ドイツとUAEが用意する資金を皆で分配する方法を協議していた。政治ってエグいでしょ。

ベイルート港爆破事件が起きた政治的背景はいろいろ考えられるけれども、それはそれとして横に置いておいて、復興需要の利権という観点に着目すると、コロナ禍で沈んだ経済をキックスタートさせる一つの目玉なのではないかと思えてくる。



On re-building the Port of Beirut
The Port of Beirut is one of the biggest and busiest in the region.

BEIRUT: Beirut as we know it died on the 4th of August 2020.

Less than a week ago, we experienced one of the most powerful non-nuclear explosions in history. 6,000 were injured, more than 160 were killed, and many victims are still missing.

Our beloved streets and neighborhoods were razed to the ground. Beirutis are still trying to process the tragedy they just faced. They have witnessed the loss of their city. It is now our duty to give life back to Beirut. Re-building the Port of Beirut is an essential step.

The Port of Beirut is one of the biggest and busiest in the region. It is 1,200,000 m², with a water basin of 1,202,000 m² (including the Container Terminal), the main breakwater of 3,190 m, and a detached breakwater of 550 m. It has a relatively high container-handling capacity, at 35,000 TEU/Hectare, receiving more than 1,200,000 TEU per year.

Since the end of the Civil War, existing port facilities were renovated and new ones were built. Today, the Port of Beirut consists of a General Cargo Terminal, a Container Terminal, a Passenger Terminal, a Free Zone, and a Crane Silo area.

It also neighbors some of the most popular and eclectic neighborhoods in the city. Right by Ashrafiyeh, it is in direct proximity to the residential areas of Gemmayzeh, Geitawi, and the upmarket urban pockets of Sursock and Tabaris. This cluster also welcomes many public institutions (notably Electricité du Liban), private businesses, medical centers (Room, Rizk, Hotel Dieu, Wadiyeh), and universities (USJ, Sagesse, AUST). Gemmeyzeh and Mar Mkhayel are also known for their vibrant bars and restaurants. The explosion destroyed most of them.

The Port is therefore a key component of the area. Damages stretch 1.7km at 700 m width, starting from Charles Helou Avenue, with an approximate area of 1.19 sq.km. In order to give life back to Beirut, we must make the best use of this space.

Re-building is no easy task. Public institutions, the private sector, and citizens must join forces to give glory back to the Port of Beirut.

First of all, the private sector must take a prime role in the re-construction and management of the Port.

History has shown us its’ efficiency in increasing capacity and productivity.

In 2019, when the Greek government leased the ownership and management of the port of Piraeus to a private Chinese company, its’ stocking capacity increased from 2 million TEUs to 5.6 million TEUs.

Since the end of the Civil War, the Port of Beirut is owned by the Lebanese government and managed by Gestion et Exploitation du Port de Beyrouth (GEPB). In light of the reconstruction projects, it should be transferred into a B.O.T process, in which contractors will bare costs and run operations. When they break-even, they will transfer ownership and management to public authorities. China and the UAE are already competing to win a 25-year BOT tender for operations and maintenance.

Moreover, we have to look beyond its’ current geographical limits. We propose an extension of the port to the north of the Beirut river, leaving the area impacted by the explosions to be renovated and converted into a community service zone.

The extension can stretch from Solidere to the Container Terminal: the new area will spread from the reclaimed dump land stretched from the North of the Beirut river to the current limit of the landfill area facing City Mall. The under-construction Linor project can host the new Port area (dimensions of 2.12 km and 750 m depth). This is in addition to an approximate area of 1.6 sq. km for future expansions. It would require a maximum main breakwater extension of 2.2 km, or a 600m detached breakwater, depending on design criteria.

However, this does not mean that we should overlook the currently tarnished area in the Port. Re-habilitating it and giving it a new life could be a great opportunity for the city and its’ citizens.

The currently tarnished area could be segmented into main 4 zones:

A touristic extension of Mar Mikhael and Gemmayzeh
A diplomatic zone for foreign delegations
A sports and leisure zone for residents from the East of the city
An area to accommodate the green areas consumed by Solidere

Not only would this project reduce the traffic bottleneck to the north entrance of Beirut Central District, but it can also be a great opportunity for job creation in the city. In light of the ongoing economic crisis, such a project can be a great source of job opportunities for Beirutis. It will stimulate the local economy and attract attention to neighboring districts.

We, as Beirutis, are now facing a tipping point in our city’s history. We might be overwhelmed by the tragedy that surrounds us. We might feel tired, hopeless, defeated. However, we must look forward and get back to work after reconstruction. Brighter days are ahead, but we must take concrete actions to get there.

We must give life back to our Port, for it is the heart of our city.

A company of thieves run by Washington to steal Syrian oil
10 August، 2020
http://sana.sy/en/?p=199559

Damascus, SANA- Stealing the resources of the Syrian people and plundering their wealth has always been a major goal of the United States in Syria, as it has completed its hostile approach by supporting terrorism there through an agreement between it and Qasad (SDF) militia to pillage the Syrian oil in an aggravated and declared crime that violates the rules of international law.

The administration of US President Donald Trump has worked for years on the scheme to plunder the Syrian oil, which was finally embodied in the agreement between Washington and Qasad militia as informed sources revealed to the (CNN) that the agreement grant an American oil company called (Delta Crescent Energy), Which was created to implement the American scheme, broad powers to seize half of the Syrian oil fields and invest in them.

“We have been authorized to engage in all aspects of energy development, transportation, marketing, refining and exploration in order to develop and redevelop the infrastructure in the region,” said James Cain, a former US ambassador to Denmark during the George W. Bush administration and one of the co-founders of Delta Crescent Energy.

The CNN noted that Cain’s two other partners in the company are James Reese, a retired Delta Force Army officer who used to run his own private security firm, and John Dorrier, a veteran oil executive with years of experience operating in the Middle East.

The trio formed the new company for the sole purpose of securing this deal in Syria and have worked intensely with State Department officials for more than a year, sources tell CNN.

The agreement between Qasad militia and the American company can be described simply as a continuation of Washington’s violations of the rules of international law, as the Russian Foreign Ministry confirmed on Saturday that the agreement of pillaging the Syrian oil is a continuation of Washington’s violations of the international law and Syria’s sovereignty over its lands.

The Ministry noted that the Americans are not satisfied with their illegal occupation for regions in Syria, but they also participate in stealing and plundering the country’s natural resources and illicitly trading in them, knowing that these resources belong to the Syrian people only.

Although the U.S. State Department and the Pentagon have officially sought to distance themselves from the project, but the sources told the CNN that behind the scenes the State Department was active in making the deal happen.

Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for the first time confirmed the deal in answering a question from Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham during a hearing on Capitol Hill.

“The deal took a little longer, senator, than we had hoped and we’re now in implementation. It can be very powerful,” Pompeo told Graham

Earlier, a Foreign and Expatriates Ministry official source told SANA in a statement that this agreement represents a deal between thieves who are stealing and thieves who are buying, affirming that this agreement is null and void and has no legal basis, warning that such despicable acts express the approach adopted by those client militias which have accepted to be a cheap puppet in the hands of the U.S. occupation.

Yemeni Foreign Minister Hisham Sharaf has also condemned the continuation of adopting an aggressive approach by the U.S. against Syria through supporting the outlaw groups and its involvement in stealing Syrian oil, stressing that the agreement to steal Syrian oil is void and only practiced by thieves of the wealth of peoples and their enemies.

アサド大統領が国会演説中に体調不良で一時退席 シリア

7月の総選挙で選ばれた新しい国民議会の開会式で、いつものように原稿を読み始めたが、演説を構成している個々の文の冒頭または末尾を、所々二度読みしているのが気になる。

32分50秒に内容の区切りに達したところで「1分(少し)」と言って退席。議員らも休憩に入った。33分26秒に再登場した。

本人は、「病気が原因ではない。昨日の午後から食べておらず、それで調子が・・・(議員が大統領の言葉に割って入り、大統領の健康を祈る言葉を叫ぶ)・・・少量の砂糖と塩を摂ったら(すぐ良くなり)いつも通りだ」と簡単に説明し、演説を続けた。大統領府は、軽い貧血を起こしたと説明。

35分から37分までは両手を演台に置き、体重をかけるような姿勢を取っているように見える。39分以降は平常モードに復活。

いつもの国会議事堂ではなく、大宴会場で座席間にsocial distancingのスペースを確保してある。

アサド大統領はこれまで健康イメージでやってきており、もともと非常に口数の多い人で、演説の本文はフスハーで、途中に早口のアンミーヤ(方言)でべらべらっと冗談を交えて議場を笑わせる芸も盛り込みながら、長時間の演説を最初から最後まで一気に駆け抜けるのが特徴だった。

ベイルート港が吹き飛ばされ悩みが増えたので、脳が疲れているのかもしれない。ご自愛下さい。
