SEPT 23,2017-COULD IT BE AN ISRAEL BIG TIME EVENT.
ITS INTERESTING-BELIEVE OR NOT-ITS YOUR CHOICE.
END OF THE WORLD PASTOR PAUL BEGLEY SETS A DATE FOR THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH. HE SAYS IT WILL BE SEPTEMBER 23,2017. AND IF WERE STILL HERE AFTER THAT. HE SAYS GOD TOLD HIM. STILL BELIEVE THE BIBLE. BECAUSE SATAN WILL BE OUT TO GET THE BIBLE. AFTER BEGLEY SETS THE FALSE DATE. AND IT DOES NOT COME TO PASS. BEGLEY IS USING GOD AS HIS ESCAPE ROUTE WHEN HIS RAPTURE DATE SET IS WRONG AGAIN LIKE ALL THE REST OF THE FALSE DATE SETTERS.DATE SET BY BEG TUE APR 25,17. BEGLEY ON APR 26,17 ADMITTED ON AIR HE GOT THIS FROM ONE OF HIS CONSPIRACY THEORISTS IN A LETTER AND QUICKLY RAN WITH IT.LIKE HE USUALLY DOES. I KNEW RIGHT AWAY THAT ITS ONE OF HIS END OF THE WORLDERS THAT SENT IT TO HIM. BECAUSE THATS ALL THIS CROWD DOES. IS DATE SET AND DREAM UP EVERY CONSPIRACY GOING. TO FIT THEIR MIND IMAGINATIONS. AND THEN CLAIM ITS BIBLE.
THIS SEPT 23,17 DATE SETTING IS AN OCCULT ASTROLOGY SATAN HOAX TO DECIEVE PEOPLE. THE REV 12 THEY USE. IS TALKING ABOUT ISRAEL-NOT THE CHURCH. SO THE RAPTURE SURE WILL NOT HAPPEN ON THAT DATE. THIS CULT ALSO CLAIM ITS A ONE IN 7,000 YEAR EVENT. LIES-THIS OCCULT ALIGNMENT HAPPENS ON AVERAGE EVERY 11 YEARS IN THE HEAVENS. THIS REV 12 CULT END OF THE WORLD RAPTURE HOAX. DATE SET THEORY IS JUST ANOTHER WAY SATAN DECIEVES THE CHURCH WITH SUPPOSID OCCULT ASTROLOGY SIGNS MIXED WITH MENS DREAMT UP IMAGINATION DELUTION. AND THEN THEY DATE SET IT AS THE RAPTURE OR END OF THE WORLD DATE SET. THIS REVELATION 12 CULT SEPT 23,17. IS JUST ANOTHER DATE SET TO KILL TRUE PROPHECY BY SATAN. BY DELUDING CHRISTIANS TO BELIEVE FALSE LYING SIGNS AND WONDERS IN THE HEAVENS. AND THEN TO TOP IT OFF. SET THE DATE AS THE RAPTURE OR END OF THE WORLD.

Palestinian leader says White House peace efforts ‘in chaos’-Abbas tells Israeli MKs that he has met with Trump officials 20 times but they aren’t conveying messages to Netanyahu; accuses Israel of blocking resumption of security ties-By Tamar Pileggi, Dov Lieber and Times of Israel staff August 20, 2017, 6:18 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Sunday that the entire administration of US President Donald Trump is in “chaos,” and indicated that the White House disarray was affecting peace efforts.“I don’t even know how they are dealing with us, because his entire administration is in chaos,” Abbas told a delegation of dovish Israeli lawmakers visiting Ramallah.Abbas told parliamentarians from the Meretz party that he had met with US officials more than 20 times since Trump’s election in November 2016, yet still had little idea what their plans for peace negotiations were.“Each time they reiterate their commitment to a two-state solution and the stop to settlement building,” he said, according to Hebrew media reports. “I urge them to tell Netanyahu that, but they refrain.”He added that it is impossible to know what Trump and his team are planning.The comments came as Trump is set to send three top aides to the region this week in an effort to kickstart peace efforts.Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, Special Envoy for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt and Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategy Dina Powell will all head to the Middle East, according to the White House, and will meet with leaders from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Jordan, Egypt, Israel and the Palestinian Authority.Trump has asked his delegation to focus the talks on this trip around several broad themes, inclusive finding “a path to substantive Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, combating extremism [and dealing with] the situation in Gaza, including how to ease the humanitarian crisis there,” according to a senior White House official.While Ramallah has officially welcomed US peace efforts, officials have begun to grumble about what they see as a lack of commitment to a two-state solution or finding a way forward, as well as a bias toward Israel’s positions.Abbas also said Sunday that Israel was preventing the resumption of security cooperation with his government, considered a key plank of ties between Ramallah and Jerusalem, which have recently withered over tensions surrounding the Temple Mount.“We recently contacted them to try to resume some kind of cooperation, but they did not respond, which is preventing progress in our relations,” Abbas said.Israeli officials quoted by Channel 2 news said later Sunday that this was not the case.The PA had cut parts of the security cooperation with Israel in mid July after Israel decided to install new security measures at the Temple Mount following a terror attack there. Palestinians and others saw the metal detectors, cameras and other methods as a breach of the sensitive status quo governing the site, supporting a boycott of the Mount and leading to near daily violence.Abbas said that Ramallah had informed the US of the situation regarding the security cooperation, which is seen as vital for both Israel to keep a thumb on terror in the West Bank, and for Abbas’s Fatah party to keep the rival Hamas group from growing too strong.Meretz head Zehava Galon told Abbas she disapproved of steps taken by the Palestinian leader to isolate the Gaza Strip as a means of pressuring Hamas, the de facto ruler of the enclave.Abbas had stopped paying for Israeli electricity provided to the Strip and had also reportedly kept medical supplies from reaching there.“I do not support Hamas or the government it established, but the decision to punish the people of Gaza by cutting off electricity is wrong and illegitimate,” Galon told Abbas.She stressed her party’s commitment to a two-state solution based on the pre-1967 borders and an end to Israel’s hold on the West Bank.“We are here today because we believe in a moderate Palestinian leadership,” Galon told the Palestinian Authority president. “There is no difference between our ideas as partners for peace.”
Poll: 1 in 3 UK Jews considered emigrating over anti-Semitism-37% of over 7,000 respondents say they’ve been concealing signs that would indicate they’re Jewish; 767 anti-Semitic attacks in first half of 2017-By JTA August 20, 2017, 10:38 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
In interviews with thousands of British Jews, almost a third of them said they have considered leaving the United Kingdom over the past two years due to anti-Semitism.The findings are part of a report published Sunday by the Campaign Against Antisemitism watchdog group, which conducted since 2015 interviews with more than 10,000 British Jews together with the YouGov market research company.In interviews conducted in 2016 and 2017 with a combined sample population of 7,156 respondents, 37 percent of them said they have been concealing in public signs that would indicate that they are Jewish.Only 59% of the respondents since 2015 said they feel welcome in the United Kingdom and 17% said they feel unwelcome.Only 39% of respondents from 2015 onward said they trust justice authorities to prosecute perpetrators of anti-Semitic hate crimes.Three-quarters of the people interviewed said they feel that recent political events have resulted in increased hostility towards Jews. Since 2015, 80% of respondents said they believe that the Labour Party is harboring anti-Semites in its ranks.In 2015, Jeremy Corbyn, a far-left politician who in 2009 called Hezbollah and Hamas his “friends,” was elected to lead Labour. Corbyn said last year that he regrets calling the terrorists his friends but Jewish groups in the United Kingdom and beyond have accused him of whitewashing anti-Semitism and allowing it to grow among the many thousands of supporters who joined Labour in support of his policies.Corbyn has denied this claim, vowing to punish anyone who is found initiating or participating in hate speech. Dozens of members were expelled from Labour under Corbyn as part of this policy. However, several Labour members who were accused of anti-Semitic hate speech were readmitted or let off with suspensions or reprimands, including former London mayor Ken Livingstone who repeatedly said last year that Adolf Hitler was a Zionist.On August 15, Campaign Against Antisemitism protested the selection as a Labour candidate of Luke Cresswell, a local politician who wrote online that “Moses must be proud” of supposed “genocide” by Israel.The survey’s respondents said they considered Islamist anti-Semitism “to be the threat that concerned them the most, and that rapidly rising hate crime targeting Jews was not being tackled by the authorities,” Campaign Against Antisemitism wrote.The Jewish community of the United Kingdom recorded 767 anti-Semitic attacks in the first half of 2017 — the highest figure recorded within six months since monitoring began in 1984. In February, the Community Security Trust watchdog reported a record 1,309 incidents in 2016, constituting a 36% increase over the 2015 tally.Among the people who told Campaign Against Antisemitism that they were considering leaving Britain was a daughter of the late mayor of Birmingham, Harold Blumenthal. The daughter, Mandy, “is now making preparations to leave Britain due to mounting antisemitism in politics and antisemitic crime, and the failure to tackle it,” the Campaign Against Antisemitism report said in a statement about their report.Campaign Against Antisemitism called on the government to urgently implement the group’s own past recommendations, including specific training and guidance on anti-Semitic hate crime for officers and prosecutors.The 2016 National Antisemitic Crime Audit registered a total of 1,078 anti-Semitic crimes, including 105 that were violent. Only one of the violent crimes was prosecuted, according to the audit. In total, only 15 cases were prosecuted, leading to the conviction of 17 suspects.Political parties were encouraged by Campaign Against Antisemitism in its report to adopt the government’s definition of anti-Semitism, which cites vitriolic hate speech against Israel as an expression of anti-Semitism.
Mother of Satan’ TATP found in Spain bomb factory-Police say easy-to-make-but-deadly explosive favored by Islamic State discovered in home of alleged Barcelona attackers-By Hui Min NEO August 20, 2017, 9:07 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
MADRID, Spain (AFP) — Traces of the easy-to-make-but-deadly explosive TATP, known as the “mother of Satan,” have been found in a house where the alleged attackers in the twin assaults in Spain were believed to be building bombs, police said Sunday.Used by jihadists everywhere from Paris and Brussels to the battlefields of Syria and Iraq, the dangerously unstable TATP has become the explosive of choice for the Islamic State group, which claimed the attacks in Barcelona and the seaside resort of Cambrils.Investigators uncovered ingredients of the explosive at a house in the town of Alcanar, around 200 kilometers (120 miles) south of Barcelona, believed to be the terror cell’s bomb-making factory.Discovered at the end of the 19th century by a German chemist, TATP is a homemade explosive, created by mixing precise quantities of acetone, oxygenated water and sulphuric, hydrochloric or nitric acid — all of which are easily available in stores.The mixture creates a coarse powder of white crystals that requires only a basic detonator to explode, triggering a huge blast of burning gas.Jihadists have set up entire labs — at first backroom affairs, but increasingly reaching industrial levels — to produce TATP and other explosive materials in Syria and Iraq.The UK-based Conflict Armament Research monitor said in a report last year that 51 companies had supplied the components needed to make homemade explosives at semi-industrial levels to IS.The companies were spread across 20 countries, including Turkey and Russia, but also Belgium and the United States.Detonators can be made with common household goods, but they can also just as easily be bought ready-made.One of the attackers in the November 2015 bloodbath in Paris had bought a dozen pyrotechnic detonators at a fireworks store in the Paris region without raising the slightest suspicion.Yet contrary to urban myth, more than a tutorial online is needed to learn how to put the ingredients together.The volatility of the operation is perhaps illustrated by the fate of the suspects preparing the bombs in Alcanar, where they are believed to have accidentally sparked a detonation that killed at least two of them on the eve of the Barcelona van rampage.
British-Australian boy, 7, killed in Spain attack-‘Energetic, funny and cheeky’ Julian Cadman confirmed among the 13 dead in Barcelona car-ramming, along with Italian and Belgian-By AFP August 20, 2017, 7:00 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
BARCELONA, Spain — A British-Australian boy aged seven who had been reported as missing by his grandfather was killed in the vehicle attack in Barcelona last week, his family and Spanish officials said Sunday.Julian Cadman was among 14 people killed in twin assaults in Spain, according to Catalonia’s civil protection agency, which also confirmed the deaths of an Italian and a Belgian on Twitter.In a heart-wrenching statement, Julian’s family described him as “a much loved and adored member of our family.”“As he was enjoying the sights of Barcelona with his mother, Julian was sadly taken from us.“He was so energetic, funny and cheeky, always bringing a smile to our faces. We are so blessed to have had him in our lives and will remember his smiles and hold his memory dear to our hearts,” they said, thanking those who helped in the search for the boy.“We will not be making any further comments on this tragedy and ask everyone, especially the media, to give us the privacy we need to grieve away from the public eye.”Julian’s grandfather Tony Cadman had posted a Facebook appeal seeking him after a van on Thursday plowed into crowds on Barcelona’s Las Ramblas boulevard which was packed with tourists.The boy was on holiday in Barcelona for a family wedding but had been separated from his mother, who was found in a hospital in a serious but stable condition.

DAMASCUS — Syrian President Bashar Assad praised allies Iran and Hezbollah and blasted the West, rejecting any security cooperation or reopening of embassies in Damascus before those countries cut relations with opposition groups.He vowed that the Palestinian cause “is still a key issue from our point of view,” and declared that “Israel is still the enemy that occupies our lands.”Under his leadership, he said, “Syria still supports all resistance groups in the region.”Assad’s defiant comments on Sunday come at a time when his troops are gaining ground around the country and many countries have ceased calling for him to step down.In a speech before dozens of Syrian diplomats in Damascus, Assad praised Russia, Iran, China and Lebanon’s Hezbollah terror group for supporting his government during his country’s six-year civil war.He said Syria would look east when it comes to political, economic and cultural relations.Assad said recent deals to deescalate violence in Syria are good to reduce the bloodletting but vowed not to give the opposition in politics what it failed to gain through arms.
Spain hunts van driver as larger gas attack plot comes into focus-Police say Barcelona attacker may have left country, confirm 12-strong terror cell believed to have planned series of attacks with over 120 gas canisters-By Agencies August 20, 2017, 4:34 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
BARCELONA, Spain (AFP) — Spanish police said Sunday that the Moroccan man suspected of driving the van used in one of the devastating twin attacks that claimed 14 lives could be at large outside Spain, as official revealed the extent of an apparently aborted plot involving dozens of gas bombs.“We don’t know where he is,” said regional police chief Josep Lluis Trapero, referring to 22-year-old suspect Younes Abouyaaqoub, as officials confirmed that the cell behind the carnage had been preparing “one or more” assaults in Barcelona.More than 120 gas canisters have been uncovered in a house where the suspects were believed to have been building bombs, Trapero said.But the jihadists had accidentally detonated an explosive at the house on the eve of Thursday’s attack in Barcelona, an error that likely forced them to modify their plans.He said authorities haven’t been able to positively identify the human remains at the house in Alcanar, complicating the manhunt.Trapero told reporters that the radical cell of 12 people had rented three vans and also used a car and motorcycle in plotting their attack.He said ingredients of the explosive TATP, which has been used by Islamic State extremists in other attacks, were found at the home in Alcanar that was destroyed Wednesday, along with more than 100 butane gas tanks.“That makes us think this is the place where they were preparing the explosives,” Trapero said.Instead, a vehicle was used to smash into crowds on Barcelona’s Las Ramblas boulevard as it was thronged with tourists, killing 13 people and injuring about 100.Several hours later, there was another attack in the seaside town of Cambrils in which one woman was killed.Police shot and killed the five attackers in Cambrils, some of whom were wearing fake explosive belts and carrying knives.-Snipers on rooftops-In Barcelona, locals and tourists turned out in force on Sunday to mourn victims at the Sagrada Familia church designed by Gaudi, as snipers were posted on surrounding rooftops of the landmark building.King Felipe, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and Catalonia’s president Carles Puigdemont led the 90-minute ceremony, while heavily armed police stood guard outside.Catalonia resident Teresa Rodriguez said she came to pray for the dead and the wounded who came from three dozen countries, some as far afield as Australia, China and Peru.“What happened in Las Ramblas is really hard for us, we go for walks there often, it could have happened to me, my children or anyone. And here we are. It’s huge, huge,” she said, fighting back tears.-Imam’s role?-Later Sunday, nearly 100,000 people are expected at Barcelona’s Camp Nou stadium for their team’s first game of the season, to be marked by a minute of silence for the victims.The Islamic State (IS) group claimed responsibility for the attacks, believed to be its first in Spain.The terror cell was reportedly made up of at least 12 men, some of them teenagers. Police also confirmed that an imam, Abdelbaki Es Satty, was among the suspects.Investigators are seeking to unravel the role of the imam, who is believed to have radicalized many of the youths in a small town called Ripoll at the foot of the Pyrenees.Several of the suspects — including Abouyaaqoub — grew up or lived in the town of about 10,000 residents.On Saturday, police raided the imam’s apartment in Ripoll, his flatmate, who would only identify himself as Nourddem, told AFP.Investigators were looking for DNA traces to check if he had been blown up in an explosion at the house in Alcanar, about 200 kilometers (120 miles) south of Barcelona, where the gas canisters were found.-Radicalizing youngsters-The imam was reportedly known to police, with Spanish media saying he had spent time in prison.El Pais and El Mundo quoting anti-terror forces said the imam had met prisoners linked to the Al-Qaeda-inspired bombing of Madrid trains that killed 191 people in March 2004 in what remains the worst terror attack in Europe.Moha, 46, who lives in Ripoll, said the imam was initially part of the only mosque in town, but “later left and (set up) his own prayer hall in a garage.”“There has been a change in the community since he arrived more than two years ago,” said Moha.He said the youths used to frequent a Moroccan cafe near the first mosque where they would watch football matches but had stopped doing so more than a year ago.In the Moroccan town of M’rirt, relatives of Abouyaaqoub also accused the imam of radicalizing the young man, as well as his brother Houssein.“Over the last two years, Younes and Houssein began to radicalize under the influence of this imam,” their grandfather told AFP.-‘Brainwashed’-Most of the suspects are children of Moroccan immigrants, including Ripoll-born Moussa Oukabir, 17, one of five suspects shot dead in Cambrils. His older brother Driss is among the four arrested.In Morocco, their father Said broke down on hearing the news.“I hope they will say he’s innocent… I don’t want to lose my two sons,” he told AFP.A cousin said Moussa “loved playing football, having a good time, chatting up girls.”“The last few months, he started to become interested in religion. He used to go to a mosque in Ripoll. Maybe that’s where he was brainwashed,” the cousin said.
Barcelona Jews reject their rabbi’s predictions of doom after attack-We are a vibrant community and we will not leave our city, says spokesman after Chief Rabbi Meir Bar-Hen warns they have no future-By Times of Israel staff and JTA August 18, 2017, 11:13 pm
A spokesman for the Barcelona Jewish Community on Friday rejected predictions of doom from the local chief rabbi, vowing that the city’s Jews would not abandon the city in the wake of the deadly attack by Islamic terrorists.“Barcelona is a city where Jews have been living for one hundred years and of which they are proud. We Jews will not leave our city,” spokesman Victor Sorenssen said in an email to the Times of Israel.His comments came after the Barcelona Chief Rabbi Meir Bar-Hen said he believes the Jewish community in Barcelona is “doomed,” because authorities in Spain do not want to confront radical Islam.Without mentioning Bar-Hen by name, Sorenssen said that the Jews of Barcelona had a vibrant past and a positive future and are an integral part of multi-cultural Barcelona.“Since 1977, with the arrival of democracy, the Jewish community has played an active role in the social fabric of Barcelona. The Jewish community participates actively in social, cultural and religious life of the society and has relation with the institutions of the city, of Catalonia and Spain,” he said, noting that next year the community will celebrate it’s centenary after being reformed following the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492.“In these hundred years, Jews from all over the world have been an active part of this reconstruction,” said Sorenssen, who wrote that he had been asked to speak out on behalf of the “crisis committee of the Jewish community” in response to the terror attack. “We are living a revival of Jewish culture.”Sorenssen said the terror attack would not change the Jewish community’s commitment to the city.“The scourge of terrorism has shaken our city with force, as it has done in other European cities. We live moments of sadness, very difficult moments. In these moments of distress the Jewish community cries and prays for the victims. And more. Our community has offered help to the authorities for whatever they may need,” he said.“Terrorism, with its vile mechanisms of fear, will not be able to defeat us. Barcelona is not afraid, its Jews join them it this stance. This cowardly attack will make us stronger. It is time for solidarity and social commitment. Not for sensationalist headlines,” Sorenssen added.In an interview with JTA published earlier Friday, Rabbi Bar-Hen had stressed that he was speaking as a private person and not for all members of his community. Nevertheless he said he had urged his congregation to leave what he called a “hub of Islamist terror for all of Europe” for years before the attacks Thursday and Friday.“Jews are not here permanently,” Bar-Hen said of the city and region. “I tell my congregants: Don’t think we’re here for good. And I encourage them to buy property in Israel. This place is lost. Don’t repeat the mistake of Algerian Jews, of Venezuelan Jews. Better [get out] early than late.”A white van on Thursday careered into crowds on Las Ramblas, Barcelona’s feted thoroughfare, when the street was packed with locals and tourists. More than 100 were injured, and 14 people killed. The driver of the van fled on foot and was believed to be still at large on Friday. Police shot dead another man at a checkpoint Thursday. The Islamic State terrorist group claimed responsibility for that attack.Hours later, police killed in a raid in Cambrils five men whom police said were terrorists planning an imminent attack.Part of the problem exposed by the attacks, Bar-Hen said, is the presence of a large Muslim community with “radical fringes.” Once these people are “living among you,” he said of terrorists and their supporters, “it’s very difficult to get rid of them. They only get stronger.” He also said this applied to Europe as a whole. “Europe is lost,” he said.The Barcelona community on Friday resumed activities that it had suspended briefly following the terror attack.
Wounded Israeli woman recounts the crush and fear of Barcelona attack-Edna Hajaj, from Beersheba, sustained minor injuries in aftermath of truck ramming, says she was lucky her husband was there to save her-By Times of Israel staff August 18, 2017, 9:18 pm
An Israeli woman who was lightly wounded during the Barcelona terror attack on Thursday recounted the moments when the truck driven by an Islamic State terrorist ploughed into the crowd.Edna Hajaj, resident of the southern city of Beersheba in her 50s, was flown to Israel and treated at the Soroka Hospital in her home town. She was released from hospital on Friday afternoon.“We were on vacation, me and my husband in Barcelona. We got there on Sunday and yesterday was supposed to be our last day there,” Hajaj told the 360 news website. “We decided to go to a restaurant before we went back to Israel and before going in decided to go into the market that is adjacent to the kosher restaurant. Just as we entered, only a minute or two, we heard tires screeching and objects being dragged on the ground.”“We understood within seconds that it was a terror attack and we started running. We didn’t know where it came from, we didn’t know where to run or what to do. We started running and everyone ran with us. I fell, and many people fell over me and just ran me over. Until my husband managed to drag me out I was hit in my ribs and had some toes broken. It was terrible,” said Hajaj.Hajaj and her husband did not have time to take their suitcases from their hotel, since the road leading there was blocked. She and her husband landed in Israel on Friday at 6 a.m.“The hotel where we stayed was right by where the attack took place and we weren’t let into the hotel because they blocked the entire road. So we just went on the plane and left all our things at the hotel. We only took off at 1 in the morning because they waited for many more Israelis, some of which never came,” said Hajaj.Hajaj sustained multiple bruises but no cuts. “I have many dry wounds, I am supposed to have a plaster cast done and I hope it’ll be OK. It hurts all over. We were on holiday and these were our last two hours there. We are happy it ended like this and not worse – if my husband wasn’t there I’d be completely run over. So many people fell on top of me I couldn’t even get up.”Also Friday the Foreign Ministry said there was now only one Israeli citizen listed as unaccounted for, however, they said the chances he was one of the victims of the attack was increasingly slim.Immediately after the attack the ministry had a list of 28 Israelis feared missing, but they had managed to make contact with all but one.Israel’s envoy in Spain, Daniel Kutner, told Israel Radio that diplomats had been dispatched to hospitals to ensure no Israelis were among those hurt or killed.At least 14 people were killed in the terror attack and dozens more were wounded. Spanish police are still looking for the man who was driving the truck.

Hospital officals: Nearly 500 dead in Sierra Leone mudslides-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-August 20, 2017
FREETOWN, Sierra Leone — Churches across Sierra Leone held special services Sunday in memory of those killed in mudslides and flooding earlier this week, as hospital officials announced the toll had risen to nearly 500 bodies collected.More than 600 people remain missing and rescue officials have warned that the chances of finding survivors are decreasing each day. The death toll earlier stood at 450.The Inter-Religious Council called for the services to be held Sunday in honour of the deceased, as special prayers and recitals were offered in mosques Friday and Sunday.The preacher at Buxton Memorial Methodist Church in Freetown, the capital, offered a sermon that looked at mankind's contribution to the disaster, as a gospel band rendered the song "Papa God Sorry for Salone (Sierra Leone)."Large-scale-burials have taken place all this week amid rainy weather that threatened further mudslides.The government of the impoverished West African nation in recent days has warned residents to evacuate a mountainside where a large crack has opened. Thousands of people live in areas at risk and the main focus is making sure they leave before further disaster, authorities have told local media.Aid groups are providing clean water as a health crisis looms."Water sources have been contaminated" and that officials "fear for an outbreak of waterborne diseases," said Saidu Kanu, country director for World Hope International.Foreign aid from the rest of the world is being sent to Freetown, said authorities.___Associated Press journalist Lekan Oyekanmi contributed to this report.Clarence Roy-MacAulay, The Associated Press.

Wear solar specs or make a viewer to safely watch eclipse-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-August 19, 2017
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Solar glasses are a must for safe viewing of Monday's total solar eclipse, the first to span coast to U.S. coast in 99 years.And parents beware: Eye doctors urge strict adult supervision for eclipse watchers under 16 years old.There should be absolutely no peeking without eclipse glasses or other certified filters except during the two minutes or so when the moon completely blots out the sun, called totality. That's the only time it's safe to view the eclipse without protection. When totality is ending, then it's time to put them back on.Totality means 100 per cent of the sun is covered. That will occur only along a narrow strip stretching from Oregon, through the Midwestern plains, down to South Carolina. The rest of the U.S. gets a partial eclipse that extends into Canada and to the top of South America.Wherever there's only a partial eclipse — you need to keep those solar specs on the whole time.There are other options if you don't have eclipse glasses. You can look indirectly with a pinhole projector that you can make yourself. NASA has a number of designs on its website , including one made with a cereal box . Or grab a kitchen colander — that casts images of the eclipsed sun onto a screen at least 3 feet away.What can happen when you look directly at the sun? You're essentially cooking your retina, the delicate, light-sensitive tissue deep inside the eyeball. Solar radiation can kill those cells. Hours can pass before you realize the extent of the damage.Seconds are enough for retinal sunburn. And unlike with the skin, you can't feel it. The damage can be temporary or permanent.Sunglasses won't work. Certified eclipse glasses or hand-held viewers are a must for direct viewing. Don't use eclipse glasses with filters that are crumpled, scratched or torn. If you can see any light besides the sun, it's time for new solar specs. Also beware if the eclipse glasses are older than 2015, when international safety standards were adopted.Eclipse glasses can be worn directly over your prescription glasses or with contacts. As for binoculars, telescopes and cameras, high-quality solar filters are essential and must be mounted at the front end.___Follow AP's coverage of the total solar eclipse here-Marcia Dunn, The Associated Press.
South Carolina aquarium to monitor animal behavior during eclipse-[Reuters]-By Nathan Frandino-YAHOONEWS-August 19, 2017
CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - Animals in the path of the first total solar eclipse to travel across the United States in 99 years have a big surprise awaiting them on Monday afternoon, biologists say.Zoos, aquariums and other wildlife parks see the celestial phenomenon as a special research opportunity to observe how birds and mammals react when the moon's shadow blots out most of the sun's light in the middle of the day, experts say.The South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston, the last spot over which the total eclipse will pass during its coast-to-coast journey, will carefully monitor the behavior of creatures during the minute and 36 seconds when the area goes dark.Biologists have set up video cameras in the Salt Marsh Aviary and Mountain Forest exhibits to gather data.In general, researchers are not particularly concerned that the sudden mid-afternoon darkness will upset animals too much even though the eclipse's approach will come as a complete surprise to them."A little bit of excitement in the days of the animals is a good thing," said aviculturist Monty Wallace. "You don't want the same thing happening to you everyday."Past solar eclipses have left animals appearing confused, with the disappearing sunlight throwing off their circadian rhythms, research shows.Birds at Zimbabwe's Mana Pools National Park fell silent while others flew in the direction of their roosts during an eclipse in 2001, while hippos "paused and looked nervous," according to a study published in the journal Astronomy and Geophysics.The Charleston aquarium's aviary exhibit is home to two pelicans, six different types of ducks, two white ibises, two types of seagulls and two herons.One of them, a yellow-crowned night heron, is nocturnal, while the other, a little blue heron, is active during the day."I'm interested to see the different behaviors that they would have naturally occurring but at a wrong time of the day, being in the middle of the day when the eclipse happens," Wallace said.The nocturnal heron may forage for food instead of hiding in a tree, its normal daytime behavior, the biologist said, while the little blue heron may take refuge in the trees out of fear of nocturnal predators.Kendle Enter, who works as the animal behaviorist senior biologist at the aquarium, is not expecting any changes in the behavior of two river otters in the Mountain Forest exhibit.At midday on Monday, when the moon's shadow will begin to cross the sun in Charleston, the otters are usually sleeping, she said. Totality is expected at 2:46 p.m., after the otters awaken from their naps."They're either going to sleep through it or they're going to wake up, expecting their food," Enter said.On its website, NASA recommends solar eclipse watchers find out for themselves how animals behave during the eclipse by simply observing pets or local wildlife.An app called iNaturalist is available to record observations and submit them online to compile a database about animal behavior during the eclipse.(Editing by Frank McGurty and Paul Smiao)

Wind fans B.C. fires, but growth of two largest blazes is limited-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-August 19, 2017
WILLIAMS LAKE, B.C. — Two of British Columbia's biggest wildfires haven't grown much over the past few days despite being fanned by strong winds.Kevin Skrepnek of the BC Wildfire Service says the winds arrived in the province on Friday as forecast but weren't as strong as feared.He says there was some rain, cooler temperatures and higher humidity.Skrepnek says the Hanceville-Riske Creek fire northwest of William's Lake was no bigger Saturday than it was Friday.The Elephant Hill fire also remained the same size and is now believed to be 25 per cent contained.Both blazes remain out of control.Skrepnek says that despite the rain, it wasn't much, and 14 new fires were sparked since Friday including seven which are believed to have been caused by lightning."It still remains quite dry out there. Whatever showers we did see out there were sporadic and we are expecting another windy day today, unfortunately," Skrepnek told reporters on Saturday afternoon.Crews with the wildfire service work on a maximum of 14 consecutive days, Skrepnek said, but that given that it has been such a busy season and the wildfire service was involved in flood support in the spring, that maximum is being shortened when practical.Skrepnek said the province has been hugely successful over the past month and a half in keeping new fires from becoming serious, noting the big fires they're fighting now began in early July.He gave much of the credit for keeping the new fires from growing to people reporting the fires when they spot them.The Canadian Press.

Trudeau to asylum seekers: Crossing border illegally won't fast-track immigration-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-August 20, 2017
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has a message for asylum seekers: crossing illegally into the country doesn't offer an advantage when it comes to obtaining refugee status in Canada."If I could directly speak to people seeking asylum, I'd like to remind them there's no advantage," Trudeau said at a news conference Sunday in Montreal. "Our rules, our principles and our laws apply to everyone."Trudeau's comments come as the government grapples with a surge in asylum seekers crossing into Quebec.In the first two weeks of August, more than 3,800 people walked over the border into the province, compared to the 2,996 who crossed throughout all of July.Speaking prior to Montreal's Pride Parade, Trudeau stressed that anyone seeking refugee status will have to go through Canada's "rigorous" screening process.He said the government is managing the unprecedented flow of predominantly Haitian asylum seekers and that all of them will be subjected to the usual security checks and evaluations before obtaining refugee status in Canada.Unlike in the United States, Haitians have no special status in Canada. About half of Haitians seeking refugee status in Canada have been denied in the last couple of years.On Thursday, the federal government announced additional measures to deal with the influx of people.Trudeau has faced criticism, notably from Conservative immigration critic Michelle Rempel, on his handling of the file.In January, Trudeau tweeted "To those fleeing persecution, terror and war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength.""Trudeau needs to emphasize the point that many people who make asylum claims in Canada after doing so in the US will be turned away," she wrote on Twitter.
Spain: Police think extremists planned massive bomb attack-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-August 20, 2017
BARCELONA, Spain — Police put up scores of roadblocks across northeast Spain on Sunday in hopes of capturing a fugitive suspect from the 12-member Islamic extremist cell that staged two vehicle attacks and plotted much deadlier carnage using explosives favoured by Islamic State militants.Complicating the manhunt, though, was the fact that police have so far been unable to identify with absolute certainty who exactly is at large.While police have names for the 12 members of the cell, three people technically remain unaccounted for: two believed killed when the house where the plot was being hatched exploded Wednesday, and a suspected fugitive, Catalan police official Josep Lluis Trapero told reporters Sunday.Trapero declined to confirm that Younes Abouyaaquoub, a 22-year-old Moroccan, was the suspected fugitive who allegedly drove the van that plowed down Barcelona's Las Ramblas promenade Thursday, killing 13 people and injuring 120. Another attack killed one person and injured others hours later in the seaside town of Cambrils."We are working in that line," Trapero said. But he added: "We don't know where he is."Another police official did confirm that three vans tied to the investigation were rented with Abouyaaquoub's credit card: The one used in the Las Ramblas carnage, another found in the northeastern town of Ripoll, where all the main attack suspects lived, and a third found in Vic, on the road between the two.Police believe the cell members had planned to fill the vans with explosives and create a massive attack in Barcelona, the Catalan capital. Trapero confirmed that more than 100 tanks of butane gas were found at the Alcanar house that exploded, as well as ingredients for making the explosive TATP, which was used by the Islamic State group in attacks in Paris and Brussels."Our thesis is that the group had planned one or more attacks with explosives in the city of Barcelona," he said. A more deadly plot was foiled, however, when the house in Alcanar blew up Wednesday night.The investigation was also focused on a missing imam, Abdelbaki Es Satty, who police think might have died in the Alcanar explosion. Trapero confirmed the imam was part of the investigation but said police had no solid evidence he was responsible for radicalizing the young men in the cell.In June, Es Satty abruptly quit working at a mosque in Ripoll and has not been seen since.His former mosque denounced the deadly attacks and weeping relatives of the suspects marched into a Ripoll square on Saturday, tearfully denying knowledge of the radical plans of their sons and brothers.Abouyaaquoub's mother said his younger brother Hussein has also disappeared, as has the younger brother of one of five suspects wearing fake explosives belts who were shot dead by police during the Cambrils attack early Friday.Everyone so far known in the cell grew up in Ripoll, a town in the Catalan foothills 100 kilometres (62 miles) north of Barcelona. Spanish police searched nine homes in Ripoll, including Es Satty's, and set up roadblocks. French police carried out extra border checks on people coming in from Spain.Neighbours , family members and the mayor of Ripoll said they were shocked by news of young men's alleged involvement in an extremist cell. All were described as well-integrated speakers of both Spanish and Catalan, the regional language.Halima Hychami, the mother of Mohamed Hychami, an attacker believed to have been killed by police, said he told her he was leaving on vacation and would return in about a week. His younger brother, Omar, left mid-afternoon Thursday and has not been heard from since."We found out by watching TV, same as all of you. They never talked about the imam. They were normal boys. They took care of me, booked my flight when I went on vacation. They all had jobs. They didn't steal. Never had a problem with me or anybody else. I can't understand it," she said.Fatima Abouyaaquoub, sister-in-law of the Hychami brothers and the cousin of Younes Abouyaaquoub, found it all hard to believe."I'm still waiting for all of it to be a lie. I don't know if they were brainwashed or they gave them some type of medication or what. I can't explain it," she said.Islamic extremists have made a point of targeting Europe's major tourist attractions, often with rented or hijacked vehicles. But in the last two years, the extremist group has steadily lost ground in its self-declared caliphate in Iraq and Syria.On Sunday, King Felipe VI, Queen Letizia, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and other officials attended a solemn Mass at Barcelona's Sagrada Familia basilica for the victims of the attacks, who ranged in age from 3 to 80.The archbishop of Barcelona, Cardinal Joan Josep Omella, said the presence of so many people was a "beautiful mosaic" of unity and urged all to work toward a common objective of "peace, respect, fraternal coexistence and love."Spanish authorities on Sunday confirmed that one of the 14 dead was 7-year-old Julian Cadman, an Australian with dual British nationality, who became separated from his injured mother.Trapero indicated Sunday there might be a 15th victim: a man whose body was found in a car that charged through a police checkpoint after the Barcelona attacks. Police fired on the vehicle and initially thought they had killed the person found inside. A forensics examination revealed no sign of bullet wounds, Trapero said.He said another man was seen running from the scene outside the city, suggesting a possible carjacking, but investigators have not established a link between the checkpoint incident and the terror investigation.Vancouver police also said Sunday that 53-year-old Canadian Ian Moore Wilson was among those killed in Barcelona and his wife Valerie was wounded.Fiona Wilson, his daughter, described her father as an adventurous traveller and thanked those who helped him and her mother in his final moments."In the midst of this tragedy, my dad would want those around him to focus on the extraordinary acts of human kindness that our family has experienced over the past several days, and that is exactly what we intend to do," she said.Francisco Lopez Rodriguez, a 57-year-old Spaniard, was killed with his 3-year-old grand-nephew, Javier Martinez, while walking along the Las Ramblas promenade. His widow Roser is recovering in a hospital."We are a broken family," niece Raquel Baron Lopez posted on Twitter.Other victims included a grandmother, 74, and her granddaughter, 20, from Portugal who were visiting Barcelona to celebrate a birthday; an Italian father who saved his children's lives but lost his own; an American man who was celebrating his first wedding anniversary.The Catalan regional government said 51 attack victims were still hospitalized Sunday, 10 of them in critical condition.___Angela Charlton in Paris; Nicole Winfield in Rome; Alex Oller and Mystyslav Chernov in Ripoll, Spain; and Oleg Cetinic in Alcanar, Spain contributed.Joseph Wilson And Lori Hinnant, The Associated Press.
Barcelona van attack suspect may have crossed into France: Spanish police-[Reuters]-By Angus Berwick-YAHOONEWS-August 20, 2017
BARCELONA, Spain (Reuters) - Spanish police hunting for a suspect after the Barcelona van attack that killed 13 people said on Sunday they could not rule out that he had slipped over the border into France.Spanish police said security operations were under way in Catalonia and on the French border as they try to find Moroccan-born Younes Abouyaaqoub, 22, who they believe to be the only one of 12 suspects still at large.Others have been arrested, shot by police or killed in an explosion at a house in Catalonia a day before Thursday's van attack on Las Ramblas, Barcelona's most famous boulevard."We don't have any specific information on this but it cannot be ruled out," Catalan police chief Josep Lluis Trapero told a news conference in Barcelona when asked if Abouyaaqoub could have crossed into France.Spanish media say authorities believe Abouyaaqoub drove the van through crowds of tourists and locals walking along Las Ramblas, leaving a trail of dead and 120 injured. Trapero said he could not confirm who was behind the wheel.A seven-year-old British-Australian boy, Julian Cadman, was confirmed on Sunday as one of 13 killed in the attack.Hours after the Barcelona attack, police shot dead five men wearing fake explosive belts in the resort of Cambrils, further down the coast, after they rammed holidaymakers with a car and stabbed others, killing one woman.Four people have been arrested so far in connection with the attacks - three Moroccans and a citizen of Spain's North African enclave of Melilla.Islamic State said the perpetrators had been responding to its call to target countries involved in a U.S.-led coalition against the Sunni militant group.-RADICALISATION-In little more than a year, Islamist militants have used vehicles as weapons to kill nearly 130 people in France, Germany, Britain, Sweden and Spain.Thursday's attacks were the deadliest in Spain for more than a decade and one focus of the Catalan police investigation is how members of the group were radicalised.One line of enquiry is Ripoll, a quiet town set beneath the Pyrenees mountains, which was home of a number of the mostly Moroccan youths suspected of involvement. Three of those killed in Cambrils were aged between 17 and 24.Another strand running through the young men's lives was a local imam, Abdelbaki Es Satty, whose landlord said he left Ripoll two days before the attack.Papers bearing what appeared to be French names, phone numbers and e-mail addresses were seen by reporters in Es Satty's apartment in Ripoll after it was searched by police.Spanish media have depicted Es Satty as being a possible ring-leader who indoctrinated the group.Speaking to reporters at the Ripoll mosque on Saturday, the head of the town's Islamic association, Ali Yassine, declined to comment on whether Es Satty had radicalised the suspects and said there were no problems at the mosque when he was imam.Hannou Ghanimi, the mother of on the run suspect Abouyaaqoub, told reporters on Saturday she wanted her son to give himself up to police, saying she would rather see him in prison than end up dead.Police believe the group opted to launch attacks using vehicles when their base in Alcanar, southwest of Barcelona, was destroyed in an explosion.Police believe that foiled the cell's plans to carry out one or more large-scale bombings in Barcelona. More than 100 butane gas cylinders were found in the remains of the Alcanar house.Spanish media said traces of triacetone triperoxide, a highly volatile explosive that can be made with easily obtainable household chemicals, were also found at the house.-MEMORIALS AND TRIBUTES-Earlier on Sunday Spain's King Felipe and Queen Letizia, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa joined Catalan leaders for a memorial service to the victims.Mourners have left hundreds of candles, wreaths and bouquets of flowers on Las Ramblas as a tribute. The city's football club, Barcelona FC, meanwhile increased security for its opening league match of the season late on Sunday.Police armed with assault rifles patrolled before the evening game against Real Betis after a government call for reinforced security at big public events."It shows that despite what happened the match has to go on," said Barcelona fan Fakih Hussein. "It's probably even safer than usual now with so much security," said Hussein, 47, who had come with his teenage son.Barcelona's team will wear black arm bands and special shirts with "We are all Barcelona" in the Catalan language in memory of victims.(Additional reporting by Sarah White, Julien Toyer, Adrian Croft, Rodrigo de Miguel, Alba Asenjo and John Miller in Zurich; Writing by Adrian Croft; Editing by Julien Toyer and Jon Boyle)
Spain hunts for driver in van rampage, says Islamist cell dismantled-[Reuters]-By Angus Berwick and Andrés González-August 19, 2017
RIPOLL/BARCELONA, Spain (Reuters) - Police were searching on Saturday for the driver of a van that killed 13 people when it plowed into a crowd in Barcelona and were trying to determine whether two other suspected Islamist militants linked to the attack had died or were at large.The Spanish government said it considered it had dismantled the cell behind Thursday's Barcelona rampage and an attack early on Friday in the Catalan seaside town of Cambrils.Police arrested four people in connection with the attacks Barcelona and Cambrils, where a woman was killed when a car rammed passersby on Friday. Five attackers wearing fake explosive belts were also shot dead in the Catalan town."The cell has been fully dismantled in Barcelona, after examining the people who died, the people who were arrested and carrying out identity checks," Interior Minister Juan Ignacio Zoido told a news conference.But authorities have yet to identify the driver of the van and his whereabouts are unclear, while police and officials in the northeastern region of Catalonia said they still needed to locate up to two other people.Investigators are focusing on a group of at least 12 suspects believed to be behind the deadliest attacks to hit Spain in more than a decade.In little more than a year, militants have used vehicles as weapons to kill nearly 130 people in France, Germany, Britain, Sweden and Spain.None of the nine people arrested or shot dead by police are believed to be the driver who sped into Las Ramblas, leaving a trail of dead and injured among the crowds of tourists and local residents strolling along the Barcelona boulevard.A Moroccan-born 22-year-old called Younes Abouyaaqoub was among those being sought, according to the mayor's office in the Catalan town of Ripoll, where he and other suspects lived.Spanish media reported that Abouyaaqoub may have been the driver of the van in Barcelona, but police and Catalan officials could not confirm this.The driver in the Barcelona attack abandoned the van and fled on foot on Thursday after plowing into the crowd. Fifty people were still in hospital on Saturday following that attack, with 13 in a critical condition.Many were foreign tourists. The Mediterranean region of Catalonian is thronged in the summer months with visitors drawn to its beaches and the port city of Barcelona's museums and tree-lined boulevards.Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attacks in Cambrils and Barcelona, a statement by the jihadist group said on Saturday.-RAIDS-Police searched a flat in Ripoll on Friday in their hunt for people connected to the attacks, the ninth raid so far on homes in the town nestled in the foothills of the Pyrenees near the French border.The flat had been occupied by a man named as Abdelbaki Es Satty, according to a search warrant seen by Reuters. Neighbors said he was an imam, a Muslim prayer leader. His landlord said he had last been seen on Tuesday.Scraps of paper covered in notes were strewn around the flat, which had been turned upside down in the police search.Three Moroccans and a citizen of Spain's North African enclave of Melilla have been arrested so far in connection with the attacks.Apart from Abouyaaqoub, authorities are searching for two other people though it is not certain they are at large.One or even both of them may have been killed in Alcanar, where a house was razed by an explosion shortly before midnight on Wednesday, a spokeswoman for Catalonia's home affairs department said.Casting new doubts over the investigation, El Pais said late on Saturday that biological remains of at least three people had been found in the ruins of the Alcanar house. It was not clear whether they could be from the three suspects still sought by the police or if more people were there.Police believe the house in Alcanar was being used to plan one or several large-scale attacks in Barcelona, possibly using a large number of butane gas canisters stored there.The Spanish government maintained its security alert level at four, one notch below the maximum level that would indicate another attack was imminent, but said it would reinforce security in crowded areas and tourist hotspots.Spanish media also said that security at the border with France was being beefed up.-TRIBUTES-Of the 14 dead in the two attacks, five are Spanish, two are Italians, two are Portuguese, one Belgian, one Canadian and one a U.S. citizen, emergency services and authorities from those countries have confirmed so far.A seven-year-old boy with British and Australian nationality who had been missing since the attack in Barcelona was found on Saturday in one of the city's hospitals and was in a serious condition, El Pais newspaper reported.Spain's King Felipe and Queen Letizia on Saturday visited some of the dozens injured whose nationalities ranged from French and German to Pakistani and the Filipino. They are being treated in various Barcelona hospitals.The royal couple are expected to take part in a Catholic mass on Sunday morning at architect Antoni Gaudi's famous Sagrada Familia church, a Barcelona landmark, in honor of the victims of the attack.Barcelona's football team will wear special shirts, bearing the Catalan words for "We are all Barcelona", and black armbands in memory of victims when they play their opening league game of the season on Sunday evening against Real Betis.(Additional reporting by Sarah White, Julien Toyer, Carlos Ruano, Rodrigo de Miguel, Alba Asenjo and Adrian Croft, Writing by Sarah White and Julien Toyer; Editing by Janet Lawrence, Edmund Blair and Lisa Shumaker)
Israeli opposition says Abbas tried to resume security ties with Israel-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-August 20, 2017
JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told Israeli opposition lawmakers on Sunday that he had proposed rolling back his month-old suspension of security coordination with Israel, but that it did not respond to the overture, the delegation said.Abbas suspended ties on July 21, demanding that Israel remove metal detectors it had installed outside a Jerusalem compound housing the Al-Aqsa mosque in response to the killing of two of its police guards by gunmen who had holed up there.Amid Palestinian and Jordanian unrest, and U.S. mediation efforts, Israel dismantled the walk-through gates on July 25 and said it would install less obtrusive security measures."We recently communicated with them (Israeli security officials) in an attempt to resume some kind of cooperation," Abbas told a visiting delegation from Israel's left-wing Meretz party, according to a statement issued by the lawmakers."But they have not returned an answer, something that has prevented progress in thawing ties," he was quoted as saying.Abbas aides were not immediately available for comment. His administration's relations with Israel are resented by many Palestinians, such as those from rival Islamist movement Hamas.A Netanyahu aide, speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said: "These reported remarks are simply incorrect." The aide declined to elaborate, citing policy of not publishing details on security contacts with the Palestinians.Despite their impasse in peace negotiations, both sides view the coordination as a means of tamping down violence in the occupied West Bank, where Palestinians have limited self-rule.Al-Aqsa, Islam's third-holiest shrine, is among areas Israel captured from Jordan in a 1967 war, and where Palestinians want statehood. Jews revere the site as vestige of their two ancient temples. Israel, the Palestinians and Jordan have tried to stave off religious tensions there with delicate access arrangements.Palestinians deemed the metal detectors a breach of this decades-old status quo. As violent protests surged, Israeli forces killed four Palestinians. A Palestinian also knifed three Israelis to death in a Jewish settlement in the West Bank.According to the Meretz statement, Abbas said on Sunday that his administration had doubled monitoring of the area since the killing of the two police guards by three Israeli Arab gunmen.Palestinian security forces do not have a formal presence in Jerusalem, all of which Israel claims as its capital - a status not recognised internationally.(Writing by Dan Williams; Editing by Jon Boyle)
Syria's Assad says Western plots against him foiled but war not yet won-[Reuters]-By Suleiman Al-Khalidi-YAHOONEWS-August 20, 2017
AMMAN (Reuters) - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Sunday his country had foiled Western designs to topple him but his army had not yet won the fight to end Syria's six-year-old insurgency.In an televised address, Assad said that even though there were signs of victory after six-and-a-half years of civil war, the "battle continues, and where we go later and it becomes possible to talk about victory...that's a different matter".He did not elaborate on that point.However, he said the assistance extended by stalwart allies Russia, Iran and Lebanon's Hezbollah movement had enabled the army to make battlefield gains and reduce the burden of war."Their direct support - politically, economically and militarily - has made possible bigger advances on the battlefield and reduced the losses and burdens of war," Assad added.Assad vowed to pursue an offensive in Syria's vast deserts, where he is backed by Iranian-funded militias and heavy Russian air power that have allowed his troops to capture significant ground from Islamic State insurgents on several major fronts.His government hopes to steal a march on U.S.-backed militias in the attack on Islamic State's last major Syrian stronghold, the Deir al-Zor region that extends to the Iraqi border. The eastward thrust, unthinkable two years ago when Assad seemed in danger, has underlined his ever more confident position and the dilemma facing Western leaders who still want him to leave power in a negotiated transition."Our army is achieving one gain after another every day to eliminate terrorists...We will continue to attack terrorists until the last terrorist on Syrian land," Assad said.He said his country welcomed Russian-brokered local ceasefire deals that Moscow is seeking to extend elsewhere in Syria as these would end bloodshed and bring an end to the insurgency and pardoning of rebels who agree to lay down arms.-"RETURN TO NORMALCY"-"The idea of these de-escalation zones is to stop the bloodletting ... and the eviction of the armed groups handing over their weapons and the return of normalcy," Assad said. "We have an interest in the success of this initiative."Russia has since last month deployed military police beside army checkpoints in southwest Syria and in Eastern Ghouta near Damascus to help ensure calm in deals it has worked out with Syrian rebel groups.Negotiations are under way with mainstream armed groups and local councils to broker a truce in the besieged northern Homs countryside enclave, where rebels have sought the intervention of Moscow to get humanitarian aid to trapped civilians.Rebel leaders are also calling for the release of thousands of detainees held in government security prisons.Many mainstream rebel groups have been skeptical about Moscow's ultimate aims in Syria and cast doubt on its readiness to put genuine pressure on Assad to abide by local truces.They also worry that these ceasefire deals are a means for Assad's army and its allies to redeploy in other areas to recover territory by using firepower freed by the truces.Rebel factions have already accused the army and Iranian-backed militias of ceasefire violations in Eastern Ghouta. The army continues to pound residential areas in rebel-held eastern suburbs of Damascus, witnesses say.Assad, whose government brands many of the Western backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) rebel groups that Moscow has reached truces with as "terrorists", has said his army retained the right to continue to attack insurgents.However, Assad has condemned U.S.-inspired "safe zones" which President Donald Trump earlier this year said he hoped to achieve with Russia, saying such a plan would only "give cover to terrorists".(Reporting by Suleiman Al-Khalidi; editing by Mark Heinrich)
Iran parliament clears oil, foreign ministers for Rouhani's new cabinet-[Reuters]-By Babak Dehghanpisheh-YAHOONEWS-August 20, 2017
BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Iranian parliament voted on Sunday to keep the oil and foreign ministers, two of pragmatist President Hassan Rouhani's key members of cabinet, in their posts.Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh has been credited with the boost in Iran's crude output since many global sanctions were lifted last year and with a multi-billion-dollar deal with France's Total to develop South Pars, the world's largest gas field.Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was Iran's lead negotiator in the landmark 2015 agreement in which Western powers agreed to rescind sanctions on the Islamic Republic in exchange for curbs on its disputed nuclear program."The most important duty of our foreign minister is to stand by the nuclear agreement and not allow America to succeed, not allow Iran's enemies to succeed," Rouhani said in an address to parliament before the vote, broadcast live on state TV."The person who defends the nuclear agreement is standing against the enemies of Iran, in other words standing against America, Israel and some small enemies in the region who are creating trouble."Fourteen other ministerial candidates also received parliamentary approval on Sunday and only one of Rouhani's nominees, the candidate for the ministry of energy, did not gather enough votes.Rouhani was criticized by reformists two weeks ago when he submitted the all-male list of cabinet ministers to parliament.He had mentioned the importance of women's rights in campaign speeches before May's presidential election in which he won a second term. Rouhani appointed two female vice-presidents one day after submitting the list of candidates but the appointments did not defuse the criticism.Vice-presidents do not have ministerial responsibility and do not need parliamentary approval.The approval of most of the ministerial candidates was a boost for Rouhani but he still faces hardline conservative opposition to his outreach to the West through the nuclear deal and his push for an easing of social restrictions at home.In his address, Rouhani - who lacks control over security and judicial organs that answer only to hardline Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei - acknowledged the obstacles his administration faces in his second term."We don't have a smooth and easy road ahead. In the current situation, governance in the world, including Europe, America, Asia and other continents, is not easy and smooth, much less in Iran and in this chaotic (Middle East) region which has left us with many problems."(Reporting by Babak Dehghanpisheh; editing by Mark Heinrich)

Far-right protests leave U.S. cities scrambling to balance safety, free speech-[Reuters]-By Sarah N. Lynch and Lisa Lambert-YAHOONEWS-August 18, 2017
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Cities across the United States are seeking ways to head off the kind of violence seen in Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend when white nationalists and neo-Nazis clashed with counter-protesters over the planned removal of a Civil War-era statue.As they step up efforts to pull such monuments from public spaces and brace for a right-wing backlash, municipalities are re-evaluating their approaches to crowd control, permits, weapon regulation and intelligence gathering.White supremacists have been emboldened by statements from President Donald Trump. A potentially volatile demonstration with mostly right-wing speakers is set for Saturday in Boston, with other events coming in days ahead."When you have an environment of anger and people carrying weapons, and a president that is tossing gasoline on that, I think that America should be deeply concerned," said Corey Saylor, a spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which tracks Muslim hate groups.Mayors face a tug-of-war between ensuring public safety and respecting Americans' cherished constitutional freedoms of speech and assembly, said experts and local leaders. The balancing act is further complicated by the right to carry guns, and even concealed weapons, in many states and cities."Certainly we recognize everyone’s First Amendment right to freedom of speech, but we’re also dedicated to freedom from fear," said Allison Silberberg, mayor of Alexandria, Virginia, a city near Washington, D.C., that has long struggled with what to do about a Confederate statue in the middle of a major road.Silberberg said she is looking forward to the result of a review of how Virginia cities handle permits for demonstrations that was ordered by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe after Charlottesville, where right-wing marchers had a permit.Many expect McAuliffe's review will lead to stricter limits on who can march and where. The mayor of Charlottesville, where a young woman was killed by a man who crashed his car into a crowd, has called for legislation to let local governments ban openly carrying guns at public events.In Boston, authorities have granted a permit for a "Free Speech" rally on Boston Common and a counter-rally expected to draw a larger crowd. Police there have barred demonstrators from bringing sticks, bats or backpacks, as they did in Charlottesville.More than half of U.S. states allow people to attend rallies with firearms, and some allow keeping those guns concealed, said Darrel Stephens, executive director of the Major Cities Chiefs Association, an organization of police department heads.Such policies put police in the position of keeping track of demonstrators and counter-demonstrators, while also "waiting for that first shot to go off," he said, a nearly impossible job.Some cities, but not all, prohibit the other types of weapons used last weekend, such as the long sticks disguised as sign holders that turned into batons, he said.Police departments' main tool for preventing clashes is the process for evaluating whether to grant a demonstration permit. It gives cities some ability to discern possibly violent intentions, plot march routes to steer adversaries away from each other and restrict weapons, Stephens said.The Lexington, Kentucky police department is "doing a lot of intelligence sharing" with federal and state law enforcement, said spokeswoman Brenna Angel.That resulted from a report that a right-wing group planned a rally in Lexington over the possible relocation of two Confederate monuments. Such memorials to those who fought for the Confederacy and the preservation of slavery in the U.S. Civil war are seen by some Americans as offensive and by others as symbols of Southern heritage.Anger on both sides over Confederate symbols is only the latest symptom of rising U.S. political polarization that sometimes escalates from peaceful protest to public violence.As recently as the 1990s, white nationalist groups held demonstrations in small towns that were spectacles but usually peaceful, said Will Potter, a University of Michigan fellow and journalist who tracks domestic terrorist groups and civil rights.More recently, he said, right-wing groups have taken to carrying guns and marching in bigger cities."It's just escalated in the last few months: the rhetoric of these groups, their affiliations with the White House... and the shows of force on the streets," he said.Michael German, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who is now a fellow at the New York University's Brennan Center for Justice, said he first saw a shift in 2016, when violence broke out in Sacramento at a neo-Nazi rally.Earlier this year, he noted, there was fighting at a handful of pro-Trump rallies between alt-right extremists and anti-fascist, or "antifa," counterprotesters.In many cases, German said, local police did not do enough to intervene. The current atmosphere is bringing together the ideological and violent wings of white supremacism "in a dangerous way," he said.(Reporting by Sarah N.
