Quartet envoys meet amid Palestinian criticism
AFP – 8 hrs ago JUNE 15,12
Envoys from the Middle East Quartet met in Brussels on Friday amid calls from the Palestinians to step up action to halt continuing Israeli settlement activity.Officials from the United States, United Nations, European Union
and Russia gathered "to consult as they routinely do over the phone as
well", said a spokesman for EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.But on the eve of the meeting chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat called on the group "to restore credibility and relevance to its role" by taking firm action to stop Israeli settlement construction."Since the Quartet was created, the Israeli settler population in the
occupied Palestinian territory increased by one fifth," he said in a
statement."Yet the Quartet has not taken any concrete measure to stop this
alarming trend, which the international community unanimously agrees now
seriously threatens the prospects of the two-state solution."The Palestinians say there can be no resumption of direct talks while Israel continues its expansion of settlement building in the occupied territories.
Diplomatic sources in Jerusalem told AFP however that Erekat and
Israeli negotiator Yitzhak Molho would head to Washington next week for a
new round of quiet diplomacy.While direct peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians remain
in deep freeze, high-level officials from both sides have been holding a
quiet dialogue on a range of issue, including an exchange of letters
between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian
president Mahmud Abbas.They have also covered a mass Palestinian hunger strike, and a
Palestinian request for the transfer of arms from Jordan to Palestinian
Authority security forces.
Friday's meeting of Quartet envoys follows April 11 talks in
Washington in which the group's top diplomats, or principals, appealed
to both sides to build trust in order to revive peace talks frozen since

China Prepares for Euro Collapse
China must take precautions against a possible exit by
debt-ridden Greece from the Eurozone, which would cause turbulence on
global financial markets and hurt exports and growth, government
economists and analysts have warned.
The world’s second-largest economy might see its year-on-year growth
dip below 7 percent if Greece leaves the Eurozone under current
circumstances, according to Ba Shusong, an economist with the
Development Research Center of the State Council, or China’s Cabinet.
“That scenario and especially its impact on employment would be
undesirable for the Chinese government,” Ba told Xinhua in an email
interview.His comments come ahead of national polls in Greece on Sunday, with
global investors fearing a left-wing coalition government will emerge
from the election and tear down the bailout deals that have kept Greece
afloat since 2010, leading to default and an exit from the Eurozone.Financial turbulence in Europe was a major driver of China’s economic
downshift early this year as it reduced external demand markedly, and a
Greek exit from the Eurozone will make the situation worse, Ba said.He urged authorities to follow developments in Europe closely and adjust economic policies in line with the changes.China should reduce holdings of assets in peripheral countries of the
Eurozone if Greece moves toward an exit gradually, Ba suggested.To offset external impact with domestic demand, the government must
continue to maintain investment growth, carry out structural tax
reduction and boost the role of private capital, he added.There is a strong possibility that Greece will drop out of the
Eurozone in future if economic turmoil continues in the region, although
it is unlikely it will happen immediately, Ba estimated.The economist noted that if Greece stays in the Eurozone, China’s
exports will pick up after bottoming in the second quarter of 2012 and
there should not be any massive fiscal stimulus like the 4-trillion-yuan
(634 billion U.S. dollars) investment plan rolled out in late 2008 to
counter the global financial crisis.China’s economy expanded at its slowest rate in nearly three years in
the first quarter of 2012, growing 8.1 percent year on year, as the
European sovereign debt crisis diminished export orders and a subdued
property sector cooled investment.Export and industrial output growth rebounded slightly in May from
lower-than-expected levels in April, but fixed-asset investment and
retail sales continued to slow, according to official data.Exporters were advised to prepare for fluctuation in the euro’s value
against the yuan, which will incur greater risks of exchange losses.The euro is expected to continue depreciating against the yuan in the
near future and Chinese firms can use forward foreign exchange
contracts and other financial derivatives to hedge exchange risks, said
Ye Yaoting, a foreign exchange analyst with the Bank of Communications.Companies should change euros into U.S. dollars or the yuan and
receive future payment in non-euro currencies as far as possible,
advised Wan Chao, investment manager of Ping An Asset Management Co.,
Ltd..The European Union is China’s largest trading partner. Its trade with
China edged up 1.3 percent year on year in the first five months of
2012, compared to the 7.7 percent growth of the country’s total foreign
trade.Meanwhile, Chinese banks have been scaling back financial derivative trading with European banks to reduce exposure to risks.The Bank of China, China’s third-largest lender, suspended buying
derivatives such as credit default swaps from French banks Societe
Generale and Credit Agricole at the end of 2011.The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China and the Bank of
Communications have also reduced investment product transactions with
Societe General, Credit Agricole and another French lender BNP Paribas,
according to the banks’ reports.Although China’s financial sector has very limited exposure to
sovereign and bank asset risks in the Eurozone, massive capital outflow
from risky markets will implicate the Asian country if Greece breaks
away from the euro, Yu Yongding, a former central bank advisor, was
reported as saying in late May.China’s central bank and other departments should consider measures
including capital controls, capital market suspension and contingency
fund injections to counter the impact of a possible Greek withdrawal, Yu
Germany alone cannot save Europe, Merkel says
Today @ 08:43 JUNE 15,12
- By Valentina Pop
- Germany is powerful but cannot
solve the euro-crisis alone, Chancellor Angela Merkel told German
lawmakers on Thursday (14 June), renewing calls for a political union
ahead of a G20 meeting in Mexico and putting pressure on Spain to seal
the bail-out deal as quickly as possible."To all those looking to Germany again in these days and expecting a
solution in one go, to all those trying to convince Germany about
eurobonds, stability funds, European deposit guarantee schemes, more
billions and many other things I say: yes, Germany is strong, Germany is
the economic engine and a stability anchor in Europe.""But even Germany's powers are not unlimited. That is why our special
responsibility as Europe's largest economy is to use these powers in a
credible way... not to overestimate them, but to move step by step on
our path to a political union."The step-by-step approach she has become renowned for since the
crisis began three years ago is once again being challenged by the
markets. Spain's borrowing costs on Thursday spiked above seven percent -
a rate at which Greece, Portugal and Ireland were forced to seek a
full-blown bail-out.Merkel said Spain was doing the "right things", but it still had to
deal with the fallout of a burst real estate bubble created by
"irresponsible actions in the past ten years."She said it was good that Spain announced its intention to seek a
eurozone bail-out of up to €100bn for its cash-strapped banks, but
insisted that "the sooner this request is made, the better."Spanish newspaper El Mundo earlier this month reported that Merkel
had pressured the previous government of Jose Luis Zapatero several
times to accept a bail-out. EUobserver understands Merkel made some 30
phone calls over the past year to convince Spanish officials to
acknowledge their funding problem.The current Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy, has also refused to go for
a full-blown, sovereignty-denting bail-out. Not going the full way has
backfired, as ratings agencies downgraded Spain close to 'junk' status,
citing lack of clarity over the aid.Spanish finance minister Luis de Guindos on Thursday admitted that
the current borrowing costs are "not a situation that can be maintained
over time... and I am convinced that we will continue to take more
measures in the coming days and weeks to help bring it down."But Merkel also used the Spanish situation as an example for the
failure of Europe's recently created banking authority (EBA), which gave
a clean bill of health to the Spanish banks just six months before they
started unravelling.She said the European Central Bank should instead take on a "stronger
role with supervisory competences, so as to protect us from delaying
problems due to national influences.""We need a credible banking supervision," she stressed.Handelsblatt on Friday reported on plans to be tabled at the 28-29
June summit beefing up the ECB which would basically strip the
London-based EBA of any authority. The German central bank, however, is
not supportive of the plans.
It's decision time for euro zone: UK's OsborneBy Matt Falloon LONDON |
In comments likely to stir up resentment on the continent, where euro zone
leaders are fed up with what they see as an obstructive Britain
lecturing from the sidelines, Osborne told the bloc to form a banking
union and underwrite its banks."A
time for decisions has come," Osborne said in a speech to London's
financiers, arguing that it may take a Greek exit from the euro to shock
euro zone leaders into taking the necessary action to end the crisis.(Reuters) - The risks to Britain from a disorderly collapse of the euro zone are huge and Greece
has to make up its mind over its membership of the zone, finance minister George Osborne said on Thursday."If
exit is the chosen route then the euro zone must have a very good plan
in place to prevent contagion. The worst case for everyone would be exit
without a sufficiently ambitious response.""The
risks for our economy from a disorderly collapse of the euro are huge,"
he warned, just three days before Greek voters go to the polls to pick
another government in an election seen as a referendum on membership of
the euro zone.Britain has
consistently blamed the euro crisis for its own economic woes - the
economy is mired in its second recession in four years - although
critics say the government's own strict austerity program has killed off
a weak recovery.Scolding Europe
is a vote winner in Britain - the biggest European economy outside the
euro zone - and plays well within Osborne's Conservative Party, which is
worried about losing votes to more eurosceptic parties in the 2015
election.Osborne called for Europe's strongest economies, such as Germany
to do more to help those on the brink; a pooling of resources via euro
bonds; closer collective oversight of fiscal and financial policy and a
backstop for the euro zone's banks."It's
not in our interests to stand in the way of the further integration
amongst euro zone countries ... that includes proposals for a banking
union," he said, calling it a natural consequence of a single currency."We
are clear that Britain will not take part in this banking union.
British taxpayers will not stand behind euro zone banks, and British
voters want the British authorities to be in charge of supervising our
own banks."Osborne repeated
Britain's demands for safeguards, especially in financial services,
against any risk of euro zone countries being able to force their will
on other European Union members.(Editing by Guy Faulconbridge

LUKE 4:5-7(BECAUSE SATAN OFFERS WORLD POWER, WORLD ORDERERS HAVE ACCEPTED SATANS GIFT)
5 And the devil, taking him (JESUS) up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.(10 DIVISION WORLD GOVERNMENT)(10 TRADE BLOCS I BELIEVE)
24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
REVELATION 13:1-3,7,8,12,16-18(ALL THE WORLDS CITIZENS UNDER DICTATORSHIP)
1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
16 And he causeth all,(WORLD SOCIALISM) both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.James Paul Warburg appearing before the Senate on 7th February 1950
Like a famous WWII Belgian General,Paul Henry Spock said in 1957:We need no commission, we have already too many. What we need is a man who is great enough to be able to keep all the people in subjection to himself and to lift us out of the economic bog into which we threaten to sink. Send us such a man. Be he a god or a devil, we will accept him.And today, sadly, the world is indeed ready for such a man.
EU commission accused of censorship
Today @ 18:45 JUNE 15,12 By Philip Ebels
- The European Commission on
Friday (15 June) was accused of censorship for omitting from a report on
men's health issues such as homosexuality, condom use, divorce and
suicide. The commission, for its part, denies any wrongdoing.The 2011 report was commissioned, according to the tender, in order
“to identify gaps of information and data relating to men's health ...
and identify any options for action at national or EU level."An “extended” version of the final report gives a detailed account of
“the state of men’s health in Europe,” ranging from cardiovascular
disease to dental caries to gender identity disorders.A shorter, more accessible version, however, leaves out the latter,
as well as parts on sexual behaviour and condom use, divorce, suicide,
and a whole chapter on problems of the male reproductive system. A
two-page leaflet is also silent on these issues.“I think it is censorship,” Svend Aage Madsen, chief psychologist at
the Copenhagen University Hospital and co-author of the report, told
EUobserver.“It is taking away things so that people do not see it.”The decision is particularly hazardous, he said, since it is the
short report - not the long one - that is printed on paper, distributed,
and read by policymakers. The 400-plus pages of the long report are
only available online.“If you don’t talk about the reproductive system or divorce - a main
cause of ill health for men - you put men’s health in danger,” he said.“And if you don’t talk about homosexuality and the particular health-related issues, you discriminate,” he added.Madsen and his colleagues had themselves already produced a shorter
version of the report. But the commission chose to cut nonetheless.Alan White, a professor of men’s health at Leeds Metropolitan
University and winner of the tender, told EUobserver he too would have
liked to see the original prevail.Policymakers today would not be able to make as well-informed a decision. “You don’t have a complete picture,” he said.Frederic Vincent, EU spokesperson for health, confirmed that “the
difference between the extended and the short version is that the
shorter is aimed at politicians and key stakeholders ... and intended to
give a short overview.”He wrote in an e-mail that the decision to omit certain sections was
only made for reasons of priority. “The two reports are on-line, so
where's the censorship?” he wrote.Meanwhile, Danish centre-left MEP Christel Schaldemose has asked the commission to explain.“It is outrageous,” she told EUobserver. “It looks as if they have censored [the report].”It is not the first time that EU policymakers are coy about issues relating to homosexuality, she added.“They are trying to avoid all the sensitive words. It is extremely worrying.”
Acta on the brink as MEPs prepare for key vote
Today @ 18:59 JUNE 15,12
- By Benjamin Fox
- The future of controversial
anti-counterfeit treaty Acta remains uncertain as MEPs on the European
Parliament’s International Affairs committee weigh up whether to approve
or reject the deal.Four European Parliament standing committees have come out against
the treaty, but the International Trade committee, is responsible for
presenting the assembly’s recommendation.It is set to adopt its position on Thursday (21 June). David Martin,
the British centre-left MEP tasked with drafting Parliament’s response
on Acta, is urging the committee to reject the deal. However parliament
sources suggested that the vote could be tighter than previously
thought.Both the centre-right EPP group, which is comfortably the largest
party group in Parliament, and the eurosceptic ECR group, are proposing
rival amendments to keep Acta alive. A full Parliamentary vote in
Strasbourg would then be held in July.Although Digital Agenda Commissioner Neelie Kroes appeared to admit
defeat on Acta during a speech on internet freedom in Berlin last month,
MEPs have come under mounting pressure from the commission and pro-Acta
lobby groups over the last month to delay their decision until the
European Court of Justice (ECJ) releases its legal opinion on the
International Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht, who led the EU’s
negotiating team, will speak in favour of Acta before MEPs take their
vote. He referred the treaty to the Luxembourg-based Court in March
calling for clarification that it does not compromise EU laws on data
privacy.Swedish MEP Christofer Fjellner, the EPP spokesman on Acta in the
committee, has proposed an amendment for parliament to ratify the
treaty. Justifying his stance, Fjellner insisted that “the ACTA
agreement provides a useful basis to (the) fight against counterfeit
products and ensures an adequate protection of consumers and companies
Meanwhile, Syed Kamall, a member of the ECR group, is urging the
committee to suspend its decision until after the court has delivered
its opinion. Both political groups are said to view a delay as a
compromise to avoid a full veto. The parliament’s Liberal and Green
groups, along with the Socialists, have stated their intention to reject
the deal.In a move indicating that EU governments are preparing to take out
the most controversial elements of the treaty in a bid to pacify MEPs,
German Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger suggested in a
recent interview that Acta could be salvaged by removing the provisions
on copyright from the treaty.Ministers and EU officials are aware that any re-negotiation of Acta
would require the consent of existing signatories to the treaty,
including the US, Japan and Australia.However, internet freedom campaigners remain unconvinced that the treaty can or should be saved.Joe McNamee, director of pan-European digital rights campaign group
EDRI, insisted that a “cherry-pick” approach would fail. “[This]
wouldn’t solve the problem that the safeguards are almost all sophistry,
smoke and mirrors.”“Either the renegotiation would be so superficial as to fail to solve
ACTA’s many problems, or it would involve the same exclusionary
approach as the first negotiation”, he told this website.
Greece in international spotlight as it heads to polls
Today @ 16:08
- By Honor Mahony
- Europe is in wait-and-see
mode as Greeks head to the ballot boxes for a vote that is set to
determine the future of their country in the eurozone.At stake on Sunday (17 June) is whether Greeks believe they will
have to carry on enduring austerity measures in return for EU-IMF cash
or whether there is a chance to fundamentally rewrite the rules.Parties espousing either side of the argument were almost neck-and-neck when official polls stopped at the beginning of June.The leading centre-right New Democracy party, headed by Antonis
Samaras, says it will seek concessions on the tough conditions attached
to the latest €130m bailout - with Greek society already teetering under
the social welfare and wage cuts and rising unemployment - but will
essentially stick with the programme demanded by Greece's creditors.But it is radical left party Syriza that has attracted much of the
attention both inside and outside Greece. Its leader Alexis Tsipras has
promised to scrap the programme entirely. He says he will replace it
with a national plan to achieve a balanced budget that would focus on
raising taxes, rather than cuts.
Greece's euro partners regard Tsipras with alarm. They say Athens
must honour its previous commitments otherwise the money will stop
flowing. This would push Greece into default and probable exit of the
single currency.Greeks went to the polls just six weeks ago. But the results proved
inconclusive when no governing coalition could be formed. It was the
date that the rest of the Europe work up to the Syriza party, which,
speaking to austerity-weary Greeks, scooped second place with 16.8
percent of the vote.Since then EU leaders have been obliquely warning Greeks about the
potential consequences of their vote on Sunday. They say they want
Greece to remain in the euro, but that it cannot be at any price.Tsipras, for his part, has been calling his euro partners' bluff. He
has regularly told supporters that the eurozone will not let Greece go
because the political, social and economic consequences would be too
high.The uncertainty has been making markets more jumpy than ever and has
contributed to driving up borrowing costs in Spain and Italy. Meanwhile
banks in Greece are reporting a steady withdrawal of millions of euros
in savings every day.
Although politicians outside Greece are avoiding overt statements on
Sunday's election, plans are being made for the worst case scenario.
Member states have been discussing the extent to which they can impose
capital controls and border checks should Greece leave the eurozone.Central banks around the world have been preparing for shock market reaction to the election outcome by ensuring liquidity.The polls open at 6am Brussels time and close 12 hours later. The
first exit polls are expected to be released soon after voting finishes.
10 Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob,(ISRAEL) saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob (ISRAEL) shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.

8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.(RUSSIA-EGYPT AND MUSLIMS)
10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:
11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

US official: Russia sends troops to Syria as peace hopes fade JUNE 15,12
Jim Miklaszewski reports that a Russian military ship carrying troops
is on its way to Syria to protect a Russian deep water port.By Jim Miklaszewski, NBC News, and msnbc.com news servicesRussia
is sending armed troops to Syria amid escalating violence there, United
States military officials told NBC News Friday, in a move certain to
frustrate Western efforts to put pressure on the regime of President
Bashir Assad.Moscow has sent a ship carrying a small contingent
of combat forces to guard Russia’s deep-water port and military base at
the Syrian city of Tartus, the US officials said.The U.S. officials also said Russia has not sent additional attack
helicopters to the Syrian government, but replacement parts for the
Russian helicopters the Syrians are already flying.Days
before President Barack Obama's meeting with Russian President Vladimir
Putin, there has been a war of words between the U.S. and Syria's
longtime military supplier. NBC's Andrea Mitchell reports.It comes after the conflict was declared by France on Wednesday to be a full-blown civil war.The
head of the U.N. observers in Syria said Friday a recent spike in
bloodshed is derailing the mission to monitor and defuse more than a
year of violence and could prompt the unarmed force to pull out. <br>
over the past 10 days has been intensifying willingly by the both
parties, with losses on both sides and significant risks to our
observers," Maj. Gen. Robert Mood told reporters in Damascus. "The
escalating violence is now limiting our ability to observe, verify,
report as well as assist in local dialogue and stability projects." Tartus is one of Russia’s most strategically-important assets, giving it military access to the Mediterranean Sea.Russia
and China, both permanent members of the U.N. Security Council with
veto power, frustrated attempts by key Western figures, including
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to enforce a United Nations peace
plan brokered by special envoy Kofi Annan.Russia’s foreign
minister Sergei Lavrov on Friday repeated Moscow's strong opposition to
external interference in Syria, said it was not discussing plans for a
Syrian political transformation following the exit of Assad.PhotoBlog: Inside Syria
a news conference after talks with his Iraqi counterpart, Lavrov said
he had seen reports saying U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria
Nuland had suggested Washington and Moscow were discussing a post-Assad
strategy in Syria. "If that was really said then it's not true,"
Lavrov said. "Such discussions are not being held and cannot be held,
because to decide for the Syrian people contradicts our position
"We do not get involved in overthrowing regimes -
neither through approval of unilateral actions by the U.N. Security
Council nor by participation in any political plots." Nuland was
asked at a news conference on Thursday whether the United States and
Russia were discussing a transition of power similar to that seen in
Yemen last year, in which President Ali Abdullah Saleh was replaced by a
deputy. "We are continuing to talk about a post-Assad transition strategy in that context," she said.Government
forces in Syria have driven rebel fighters out of the town of Haffa
near the Turkish border and are now allowing UN monitors to enter the
area. NBC's Richard Engel reports.Lavrov said any broad
international talks on Syria must include Iran and must only address
ways to create conditions for a political dialogue in Syria - not the
content of that dialogue or preconditions such as Assad's exit. Russia,
which has come under increasing criticism from the West for arms
deliveries to Syria, responded to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton's allegations that attack helicopters were on the way from
Russia to Syria. In a statement on the Foreign Ministry website,
Russia said it had made no new deliveries of military helicopters to
Syria but under old contracts it had repaired helicopters sent to Syria
"many years ago". "There are no new deliveries of Russian
military helicopters to Syria. All arms industry cooperation with Syria
is limited to a transfer of defensive arms," the ministry said on its
website. "As regards helicopters, planned repairs of
(helicopters) delivered to Syria many years ago were conducted earlier,"
it said. It did not say when they had been repaired or, if they were
repaired in Russia, when they were returned to Syria.
Inside Syria: War-torn city of Homs scarred by violence, riddled with fear
Syria's ambassador to Russia said on Thursday Russia had not sent new attack helicopters to Syria.
says it is fulfilling existing contracts for air defense systems
against external attacks. President Vladimir Putin, due to meet U.S.
President Barack Obama next week, said the weapons Russia sends could
not be used in civil conflicts. A source close to Russia's arms
exporting monopoly Rosoboronexport said Clinton's comments may have
referred to helicopters sent to Russia in 2009 for repairs and which may
be on the way back to Syria. The source said on Wednesday at
least nine Mi-25 helicopters were sent to Russia's Baltic exclave of
Kaliningrad to be repaired by Oboronservis, owned by the Defense
Ministry. Russia delivered three different missile systems
including Bastion anti-ship missile units and another anti-aircraft
system to Syria last year. At least two ships carrying Russian
weapons have reportedly travelled to Syria since the beginning of the
year, though possibly not on behalf of state arms exporter
Rosoboronexport. Reuters contributed to this report. Jim Miklaszewski is the chief Pentagon correspondent for NBC News.
Both Syrian sides intensifying violence - UN monitor
By Thomas Grove and Oliver Holmes | Reuters – 44 mins ago JUNE 15,12
MOSCOW/BEIRUT (Reuters) - Both rebels and forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad
are intensifying violence in Syria
and striving for military gains rather than peaceful transition, the chief U.N. monitor in Syria, Major-General Robert Mood
, said on Friday.Russia
dug in further against Western pressure to discuss a post-Assad Syria,
and France's foreign minister said Paris was considering whether to
equip rebels with communications equipment to encourage a "stronger
revolt".At least 34 people were killed in Syria on Friday, said the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights
, most of them by Assad
forces. The group, which has a network of activists across Syria, said
the death toll included at least six members of Assad's forces who were
killed in clashes with rebels."Violence over the past 10 days has been intensified,
again willingly by both parties, with losses on both sides and at
significant risk to our observers," Mood told reporters in Damascus."There appears to be a lack of willingness to see a
peaceful transition. Instead there is a push towards advancing military
positions."In Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov
said discussions regarding a political transformation in Syria after
Assad "are not being held and cannot be held, because to decide for the
Syrian people contradicts our position completely"."We do not get involved in overthrowing regimes -
neither through approval of unilateral actions by the U.N. Security
Council nor by participation in any political plots," he said.His comments were a response to a remark by U.S. State
Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland suggesting Washington and Moscow
were discussing a post-Assad strategy in Syria.Russia's Foreign Ministry also rebutted accusations by
U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton that Russia was sending attack
helicopters to Syria. It said Moscow had made no new deliveries, but had
at some point carried out "previously planned repairs of (helicopters),
which were delivered to Syria many years ago".
World powers are deeply divided over Syria, with Russia
and China - both permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and
holding vetoes - blocking efforts by Western powers to condemn Assad or
call for his removal after 15 months of bloodshed.French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius
said his country still supported the UN-backed peace plan brokered by international envoy Kofi Annan."But we are also considering - and the Americans have
done this - not giving weapons but providing communications equipment so
that a stronger revolt develops among the population," said Fabius.His spokesman appeared to play down the comments,
saying it was important for Syrians to have communications tools so they
could be warned if tanks were heading toward their cities, but adding
no decision had been taken yet.Violence has surged in recent weeks after government
forces and allied militia launched offensives to regain territories
controlled by the opposition, and rebels abandoned a ceasefire
negotiated by international envoy Kofi Annan.Turkish President Abdullah Gul said his worst fears were being realized in Syria."Our biggest fear was to reach this point that we are
in today, it is almost at a state of civil war. We did what we could,
unfortunately the situation is worse," he said on Turkish-language
channel CNNTurk.Human Rights Watch (HRW) accused Assad's forces of
using rape and other sexual violence against men, women and children,
citing interviews with victims."The assaults are not limited to detention facilities -
government forces and pro-government shabiha militia members have also
sexually assaulted women and girls during home raids and residential
sweeps," said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director at HRW.The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said it was striving to alleviate growing suffering."More and more people are in need of help," said
Alexandre Equey, deputy head of the ICRC delegation in Syria. "In some
areas, people are unable to get out, and help cannot get in.Heavy clashes were reported across Syria on Friday.
Opposition activists said they would hold peaceful protests. In amateur
video footage posted on the Internet, demonstrators held signs saying:
"Russia: enemy number one for the Syrian people."(Additional reporting by Erika Solomon in Beirut,

Egyptians bemoan "coup", protest muted
By Tom Pfeiffer and Yasmine Saleh | Reuters – 18 mins ago JUNE 15,12
CAIRO (Reuters) - Denouncing a "coup" by Cairo's shadowy military rulers, Egyptian liberals and Islamists
said on Friday the dissolution of a first freely elected parliament has
thrown the country back into turmoil 16 months the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak.Faced with more evidence that the generals who pushed
aside Mubarak to appease a popular revolt will not let an Islamist
movement they oppressed for decades simply sweep to power, the Muslim Brotherhood warned of "dangerous days" ahead and some compared it to the start of Algeria's civil war in 1992, when its army cancelled an election an Islamist party was winning.But on the eve of a presidential ballot that may install a Mubarak protege as head of state, few took to the streets and the most potent force opposing the army, the Brotherhood, has urged Egyptians to set aside doubts on its Islamist agenda and support its candidate on Saturday to thwart the old guard."All the democratic gains of the revolution could be
wiped out and overturned with the handing of power to one of the symbols
of the previous era," the Brotherhood said after supreme court judges
appointed under Mubarak voided the voting that had given it and hardline
Islamist allies a legislative majority.Yet few analysts saw violent confrontation any time soon.The ruling seemed to many to reflect unease on the
ruling military council that a presidential win for the Brotherhood's
Mohamed Morsy over former general Ahmed Shafik
could sink its hopes of retaining army influence over a civilian
leadership to which the council, the SCAF, promises to hand power by
July 1.But the Brotherhood, wary of giving any grounds for
legal challenges to its bid for the presidency, did not call members on
to the streets. Those few who did gather, from secular and other
Islamist groups, numbered barely in the hundreds at Tahrir Square in
Cairo, birthplace of the revolution, and other sites.
A weariness of chaos and recurrent violence among many
of the 82 million Egyptians - as well as worries fueled by hardline
Islamist violence in Tunisia, whose revolt inspired the one in Egypt -
may have bolstered popular support for Shafik, who served for a month as
Mubarak's last prime minister.
Most troubling for many, including foreign investors
who have seen Egypt's economy ravaged by disruption and a slump in
tourist revenue, may simply be the continuation of uncertainty."Whatever the ultimate outcome of these events, the
political and policy-making process has been complicated, delaying the
likely implementation of the comprehensive macroeconomic and structural
reforms needed to kick-start recovery and ease financing strains," said
Richard Fox at Fitch Ratings, explaining a downgrade to junk status of
Egypt's debt.And in Washington, a State Department spokeswoman
voiced dismay: "We are troubled that yesterday's court ruling did appear
to dissolve ... this independent parliament," she said. "If ... this
set of parliamentary elections has to be re-run, we want that as quickly
as possible and we don't want it to hold up the turning over of power
by the SCAF to elected Egyptians."The European Union also stressed it wanted the legal
and political uncertainties sorted out "as soon as possible" and urged
all sides to ensure a peaceful, fair presidential ballot.Enjy Hamdy of the April 6 movement which coordinated
pro-democracy protests against Mubarak said: "This all must be seen as a
military coup, an attempt by the army to stay in power longer to
protect their interests, which we will not accept."But divisions between liberals and Islamists -
highlighted by the splitting of votes among presidential contenders in a
first round ballot in May - have hampered efforts to draw up a new
constitution and leave many facing a unpalatable choice on Saturday and
Sunday between two extremes in Egyptian politics.
Bloodied by Mubarak's security forces in the 1990s, at a
time when Algeria's electorally thwarted Islamists were waging a
full-scale war that killed some 150,000 people, the 84-year-old Brotherhood has since fought shy of overt confrontation and many doubt whether it would challenge the army with force."We are going to be hearing the word Algeria a lot more
in the coming days. This is similar to what happened," said Shadi Hamid
of the Brookings Doha Center. But he added: "I don't think we are going
to see an outbreak of systematic violence.""It's a huge dilemma for the Brotherhood, how they react," said Nathan Brown of the Carnegie Middle East Program."Do they call for a showdown? Or do they settle for the
best they can get? These signals we are seeing probably tilt towards
dusting themselves down and moving on," he said, adding that the
Brotherhood could not count on support from other opposition groups if
it confronted the army as many of those who challenged Mubarak were now
"as scared of the Brotherhood as the military".
Some liberals even welcomed the latest twist from the
judges, hoping for better representation in a new parliament."The electoral law was flawed and brought in a flawed
parliament," Ziad Bahaa-Eldin, a legislator from the Social Democratic
Party, said on his Facebook page. "Parliament had lost much of its
stature and credibility ... because of the Islamist parties' misuse of
the majority they enjoyed."Yet with no agreement on how to write a new
constitution, no legislature and possibly a head of state who is, again,
a former general and product of the armed forces which retain a grip on
the economy, many question the military's good faith.
The constitutional court ruled that the election to
parliament had failed to observe legal guidelines and rejected a
challenge to Shafik's right to run in the presidential ballot.On top of a new decree empowering the military to
arrest civilian protesters, these dismayed many who thought the fall of
Mubarak would end six decades of effective army rule.Many spoke of deep anxiety, but also with defiance.Wael Ghonim, the Google executive whose arrest during
last year's protests rallied the opposition, tweeted: "The only thing
that will make us go back to living in fear, oppression and silence is a
time machine - they haven't invented that yet."
A few dozen protesters prayed on Tahrir Square. One
young man distributed flyers calling on people to cast blank ballots on
Saturday: "No to the army, no to the Brotherhood," it read.
Morsy pledged to press ahead with his presidential bid
regardless of the court rulings and warned against foul play of the type
that was typical of elections in Mubarak's days."If there is any fraud, there will be a huge revolution
against the criminals ... a huge revolution until we realize the
complete goals of the January 25 revolution," he said, referring to the
date of the start of the uprising against Mubarak last year.
But the suggestion that Shafik, a former air force
commander like Mubarak, might win thanks to fraud overlooks the success
of his tough law-and-order message and secular credentials.To its critics, the Brotherhood's
inability to rally a revolutionary coalition behind Morsy betrays an
arrogance and lack of compromise that has put off many of the Egyptians
who respected its pledges to tackle corruption and work for social
justice and who handed it a commanding position in parliament.The future could scarcely be less clear."The SCAF ... may look to have won this seemingly
decisive round. But it's not the endgame. It's only the beginning of a
new phase of a horribly mismanaged 'transition' that is coming to its
well-earned end," said Marc Lynch, associate professor at George
Washington University, in a Foreign Policy magazine blog.
But referring to history, including the army's crushing of the Brotherhood in 1954, he asked: "What's next?
"A replay of Algeria in 1991? A return to January 25,
2011? Back to 1954? A return to the petulant slow fail of latter-days
Mubarak? An alien invasion using nano-weapons and transgalactic
wormholes in the pyramids? Nobody really seems to know."(Additional reporting by Marwa Awad, Patrick Werr, Tom

Tropical storm Carlotta aims at Mexico Pacific coast
By Gabriel Stargardter | Reuters – Thu, Jun 14, 2012 1:17 PM EDT
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Tropical storm Carlotta
strengthened off Mexico
's Pacific coast on Thursday and was expected to become a hurricane on Friday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center
said.Carlotta, the third named storm of the Pacific hurricane season
, is set to graze the coastline south of tourist city Acapulco
and pass north of Mexico's largest oil refinery.State oil company Pemex
said it was monitoring the storm and the 330,000 barrel per day (bpd) refinery was operating normally on Thursday.Carlotta's path is far from the Baja California resort of Los Cabos
where world leaders
are set convene next week for the Group of 20 leaders of top economies on June 18-19.With maximum sustained winds of 45 mph, Carlotta was
590 miles southeast of Acapulco and was moving northwest at 9 mph, the
Miami-based center said.The Mexican government issued a hurricane watch from
east of Salina Cruz to Barra de Tonala, and west of Punta Maldonado to
Acapulco.The storm could dump up to 12 inches (300 mm) of rain
in the affected areas and cause dangerous storm surges, the center said.
"These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides,"
it said.Authorities in the Baja California peninsula preparing
for the G20 summit said the airport in Los Cabos, expecting an influx of
delegations from around the world, was still open."We are following developments, but at the moment there
is no alert," said Salvador Banaga, head of Los Cabos' emergency
services. "We are expecting the biggest impact to be in the southeast
part of the country. Up here it won't be that bad."In 2002, Hurricane Kenna
hit south of Los Cabos while the city was hosting an international
meeting of the 21-member Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC).
Strong winds from Kenna knocked over the main tent at the event where
world leaders were set to attend a gala dinner, although no one was
injured.(Additional reporting by Mica Rosenberg and Lizbeth Diaz; Editing by Simon Gardner and David Gregorio)

Damage from Texas hail storms could top $400 million
By Marice Richter | Reuters – Thu, Jun 14, 2012 3:27 PM EDT
DALLAS (Reuters) - Several strong thunderstorms cut a swath through North Texas late on Wednesday, with baseball-sized hail stones smashing everything from car windshields to the marquee of a landmark East Dallas movie theater.The hail storms were the worst in the North Texas and Dallas area since April 2003, the National Weather Service said on Thursday.The storms likely caused hundreds of millions of
dollars in insured losses, and may even top the $400 million in losses
from a series of tornadoes two months ago, the Insurance Council of Texas said on Thursday.No serious injuries were reported.Two intense storms swept through the Dallas area late
on Wednesday afternoon and lasted more than three hours before tapering
off, said Jason Dunn, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service."This was definitely a multimillion-dollar hail storm,"
Dunn said. "A lot of car windshields were blown out and roofs damaged
in Dallas."Three people were hurt when the storm flipped over a mobile home in Fannin County northeast of Dallas,
the National Weather Service said. The three were treated in hospital
and released, said Fannin County Emergency Coordinator Darrell Brewer.Hail smashed the marquee of the landmark Lakewood
Theatre in East Dallas. A glass sculpture by artist Dale Chihuly at the
Dallas Arboretum suffered minor damage, arboretum officials said.The storms also shredded trees and blanketed streets
with downed limbs and leaves. About 6,000 homes and businesses lost
power, but this was restored by Thursday morning, said Megan Wright, a
spokeswoman for electricity provider Oncor.More than 40 flights were diverted and 10 delayed at
Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on Wednesday evening. Airport
officials said service was back to normal on Thursday.(Additional reporting by Ben Berkowitz. Editing by Tom Brown, Corrie MacLaggan and David Brunnstrom.)
