U.S. Distances Itself from Netanyahu's Comments-State Department distances itself from-Netanyahu's comments in UN speech regarding the similarities between Hamas and IS.By Ben Ariel-First Publish: 9/30/2014, 4:16 AM-ISRAELNATIONALNEWS

The U.S. State Department distanced itself on Monday from comments made by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly.Speaking to reporters, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki particularly referred to Netanyahu’s comparison between Hamas and the “Islamic State” (IS or ISIS), as well as to his criticism of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC).“We believe they’re both terrorist organizations,” she said, responding to a question regarding Netanyahu’s saying that Hamas and IS are one and the same.“We obviously believe that [IS] poses a different threat to the United States, based on, of course, the military action and other efforts that are underway,” added Psaki.“We don’t believe that Prime Minister Netanyahu or anyone else from Israel is suggesting that the United States launch a military campaign against Hamas, so we certainly – they are both designated terrorist organizations under the United States designations, but certainly we see differences -- in terms of the threat and otherwise,” she said.Psaki also distanced herself from Netanyahu’s comment that the UNHRC “has become a Terrorists' Human Rights Council", though she acknowledged Washington had some issues with some of the UNHRC’s actions.“We would not agree with that,” she said, when asked if the U.S. agreed with Netanyahu’s statement that the UNHRC is a “terrorists’ commission”.“We have obviously voiced concerns when we have them about actions that are taken, but no, we would certainly not agree with that characterization,” added Psaki.“We don’t see the need for heated rhetoric. But obviously there are times when we certainly agree, and we’ve expressed concerns in the past as well about the same organization and how they operate,” she said.Speaking to reporters on Sunday just before takeoff on his way to New York, Netanyahu reiterated his pledge to "refute the lies" against Israel at the UN General Assembly, particularly in the speech by Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, who accused Israel of “genocide” and “war crimes”.His associates later said the speech would be "razor sharp" and "worth the wait."

Abbas's Spokesman: We Want a Palestinian State-PA Chairman's spokesman responds to Netanyahu's speech at the UN, says PA wants a state in accordance with UN resolutions.By Dalit Halevi and Ben Ariel-First Publish: 9/30/2014, 3:44 AM-ISRAELNATIONALNEWS
Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s spokesman, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, responded on Monday evening to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s speech at the United Nations, saying that the solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict should be based on the decisions of legitimate international institutions, on the Arab Peace Initiative and on the UN General Assembly resolution of November 29, 2012, in which “Palestine” was recognized as a non-member observer state at the UN.Abu Rudeineh added that the solution should lead to the establishment of a Palestinian state with its capital in eastern Jerusalem.He said Israel “must stop settlement construction immediately, lift the siege [on Gaza] and stop the actions of the extremists in the holy places.”In his speech, Netanyahu linked subjects such as Hamas, ISIS, Iran, anti-Semitism, and Israeli-Palestinian issues to the theme of global partnership and the war against global jihad (and, by extension, extremism).He said that "Hamas is ISIS, and ISIS is Hamas. And what they share is what all Islamism shares: [. . .] they all have the same ideology, they all seek to establish a global militant Islam - where there is no freedom.""To them, anyone can be considered an infidel, including fellow Muslims," declared Netanyahu.The speech also focused on refuting claims by Abbas in his UN speech last week, in which he accused Israel of “genocide” and “war crimes”."Hamas cynically used schools - UN schools! - and hospitals, and mosques to house civilians, as Israel surgically struck to eliminate terrorists," Netanyahu said."We were not [targeting civilians]," Netanyahu fired. "We regret every civilian casualty."He noted that the IDF took many measures to warn Palestinian civilians ahead of every strike."No other army in history has gone to greater lengths to prevent civilian casualties in the population of their enemies," he noted, to applause. "They upheld the highest moral values of any army in the world.""Israel's army deserves the admiration of decent people everywhere," he added, to applause.The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) denounced Netanyahu’s speech, accusing him of “blatantly manipulating” the facts when he compared Hamas with the Islamic State and Iran."Netanyahu's speech at the UN was a blatant manipulation of facts and attempted at misleading the audience through a combination of hate language, slander and argument of obfuscation," PLO executive member Hanan Ashrawi said.

Nationalist MKs Praise Netanyahu's UN Speech-While leftist MKs rejected the Prime Minister's speech, nationalist MKs praised Netanyahu for exposing the PA's lies.By Ben Ariel-First Publish: 9/30/2014, 2:44 AM-ISRAELNATIONALNEWS

While Knesset Members from the leftist side of the political map rejected Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly as having “missed the mark”, nationalist MKs welcomed Netanyahu’s comments on Monday.MK Ze'ev Elkin (Likud), chairman of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said, “I congratulate the Prime Minister on his appropriate response to the lies and slanders of [Palestinian Authority Chairman] Mahmoud Abbas, and am calling the Prime Minister and the Cabinet to move from words to actions!”“Mahmoud Abbas should know that continuing the war of slander and attacks against Israel in the international arena will involve a painful price that he and the PA leadership will have to pay. It is inconceivable that Abbas, who depends on us every step of the way for almost everything, will continue to enjoy our help while conducting a diplomatic war against us,” he added. Deputy Minister Ofir Akunis (Likud) said, “While Abbas used the UN podium to distribute the well-known Palestinian lies, Prime Minister Netanyahu revealed the most basic truth about the reality in the Middle East and delivered the truth.”Akunis continued, “It is good that the Prime Minister held up a mirror in front of the western world and emphasized the immediate dangers that Iran, Hamas and ISIS place before it. As always, the truth is stronger and more effective than false propaganda.”Deputy Transportation Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) also welcomed the Prime Minister's speech at the UN and said, “This is a formal declaration on the part of Israel that talks with the Palestinians have ended. Promoting relations with the moderate Arab world will be done directly because of shared interests rather than on the building of another terrorist state on Israeli territory."MK Motti Yogev (Jewish Home) said that Netanyahu’s speech “reflected the reality in the Middle East. It was an answer to the Iranian speech of deception and the incitement speech of the Palestinian Authority”.“Netanyahu also correctly reflected on the relation between the radical Islamic terrorist organizations and the Iranian nuclear threat to Israel and the entire world,” said Yogev, who added that “the thoughts about an enemy Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria endanger the security of the State of Israel and belong in the garbage can of the tumultuous history of the Middle East.”Deputy Education Minister Avi Wortzman (Jewish Home) also welcomed Netanyahu’s speech and compared it with the speech by Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, who accused Israel of “genocide” and “war crimes”. “Abu Mazen continues to lie on every possible platform. The left continues to strive for an agreement with Arafat's successor, but we discover again and again that these are nothing but pipe dreams,” he said.“It's time to end the dialogue with the terrorist, Hamas’s partner, who goes around wearing a suit,” added Wortzman.

Netanyahu at UN: 'ISIS is Hamas, Hamas is ISIS'-In landmark speech, PM calls UNHRC 'an oxymoron' - and defends Israel as 'the most moral army in the world.'By Tova Dvorin-First Publish: 9/29/2014, 7:39 PM / Last Update: 9/29/2014, 8:09 PM-ISRAELNATIONALNEWS

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Monday, in a bid to refute the smear campaign launched by Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas claiming Israel is guilty of "genocide." "Distinguished delegates, I come here from Jerusalem to speak on behalf of my people, the people of Israel," Netanyahu began. "I have come here to speak about the dangers we face [. . ] against the brazen lies about my country and about the people who defend it." The Prime Minister emphasized that Israel's fight against Hamas is a microcosm of the fight against global jihad."Ladies and gentlemen, the people of Israel pray for peace, but those hopes are in danger - because militant Islam is on the rise," he stated. "No one is spared - Christians, Jews, and Muslims."

"Their ultimate goal is to dominate the world."

"That threat may seem exaggerated to some, because it starts out small - like a cancer," he continued. "But cancer grows, covering a wider and wider area. To protect the security of the world, we must remove the scab, before it's too late."

Hamas = ISIS

Netanyahu then noted the hypocrisy of public opinion."Last week, many people in the world applauded US President Barack Obama for joining the fight against ISIS," he stated. "The same countries complained against Israel for fighting Hamas.""They don't understand that ISIS and Hamas are the branches of the same poisonous tree," he continued. "Hamas shares the same militant ambitions of global Islamists."Netanyahu compared ISIS and Hamas's charters, and noted that Hamas cheered when thousands died in the US during the September 11, 2001 attacks."Hamas is ISIS, and ISIS is Hamas," he declared. "And what they share is what all Islamism shares: [. . .] they all have the same ideology, they all seek to establish a global militant Islam - where there is no freedom.""To them, anyone can be considered an infidel, including fellow Muslims."Netanyahu then compared Hamas, ISIS, and Nazis."The Nazis believed in a master race; Islamists believe in a master faith," Netanyahu said. "The question before us is whether militant Islam will have the power to realize their unbridled ambition."

Hamas, ISIS, and Iran: same same, new name

Netanyahu then addressed the Iran issue, noting that the Islamic Revolution was based on the decree that the whole world will cry, 'There is no God but Allah in the entire world.' Today, the Revolutionary Guards aim to establish an "Islamic World Government," he notes.As for the opinion that Iran's views on this are only fueled by "extremists," Netanyahu dismissed it as "changing both the ideology and the content" of Iranian governance. He quoted lines from a book by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, whereby Rouhani says he has "problems with the West.""Don't be fooled by Iran's manipulative 'charm offensive,'" Netanyahu urged. "It's for one reason only: to remove sanctions, and to lift obstacles to the path of power." "This would essentially cement Iran's place as a threshold nuclear power," he continued, saying it would "pose the gravest threat to us all.""It's one thing to confront militant Islamists on the back of a pickup truck armed with rifles," he said. "It's another to confront militant Islamists with weapons of mass destruction." Netanyahu then compared the situation with ISIS to the situation with Syrian chemical weapons, whereby he noted that Syria was disarmed - but ISIS and Iran are not."Would you let ISIS build a water reactor? Would you let ISIS have access to nuclear weapons?" he asked. "Of course you wouldn't, and you should not let the Islamic State of Iran either." If so, he says, "the Ayatollah will show their true face and unleash their fanaticism to the entire world.""Iran's military capabilities must be fully dismantled," he declared, to general applause. "Make no mistake: ISIS must be defeated. But to defeat ISIS and leave Iran as a threshold nuclear power would be to win the battle and lose the war.""Ladies and gentleman, the fight against militant Islam is indivisible," he continued. "That's why Israel's fight against Hamas is not our fight: it's your fight. Our fight against Hamas today could be your fight tomorrow."

'Would you let terrorists fire rockets at your cities?'

Netanyahu then addressed Operation Protective Edge."You wouldn't let terrorists fire rockets at your cities with impunity," he said. "Nor would you let them dig terror tunnels or kidnap your citizens." "Yet Israel faced another challenge: a propaganda war.""Hamas cynically used schools - UN schools! - and hospitals, and mosques to house civilians, as Israel surgically struck to eliminate terrorists." "We were not [targeting civilians]," Netanyahu fired. "We regret every civilian casualty."Netanyahu noted that the IDF took many measures to warn Palestinian civilians ahead of every strike."No other army in history has gone to greater lengths to prevent civilian casualties in the population of their enemies," he noted, to applause. "They upheld the highest moral values of any army in the world." "Israel's army deserves the admiration of decent people everywhere," he added, to applause.

Redefining 'war crime' and 'human rights council'

Netanyahu also noted Hamas's executions of Fatah members and dissidents, as well as the terror group's deliberate use of children as human shields, using a France 24 photo as proof."This is a war crime," he said. "I say to Abbas: there are the war crimes committed by Hamas, under your leadership, under the unity government you head, and these are the war crimes you should have called to investigate last week.""The profound moral difference between Israel and Hamas couldn't have been clearer," he said. "Israel was using missiles to protect its children, Hamas was using children to protect its missiles.""The UNHRC has betrayed its noble principles to protect its enemies," he continued, noting it is "turning the concept of war upside down.""The UNHRC is sending a clear message to terrorists everywhere: use civilians as a human shield. Use them again, and again, and again. You know why? Because sadly, it works.""Thus, the UNHRC has become a Terrorists' Human Rights Council," Netanyahu declared, noting that it "may have already had consequences." Netanyahu slammed the UNHRC for dedicating over half of its resolutions against Israel, "where issues are openly debated in our boisterous parliament.""The UNHRC is an oxymoron, but I'll use it just the same," he said. "Its policies are an extension of the oldest prejudice in the world. It's a function of diseased minds: it's called anti-Semitism, which is spreading in polite society, which is being legitimized as a form of criticism against Israel.""Genocide? In what moral universe does a country attempt over and over again to get its enemies out of harm's way? To build field hospitals? To ship tons and tons of aid?""The same moral universe where the man who wrote a dissertation denying the Holocaust can stand on the podium and claim Israel commits genocide."

Israel: standing tall

"Today, Israel will defend itself against her enemies," Netanyahu continued. "Israel will try its enemies on the courts of public opinion. Israel will stand proud and unbowed." Applause followed. "Together, Israel and the world face many of the same dangers," he noted, including "militant Islam and a nuclear Iran." "Our job is to form a partnership over these issues," he said."I believe the partnership between us can also facilitate peace between Israel and the Palestinians," he added, noting that the "active involvement of Arab countries - those who are willing to provide political, material, and other support - could bring a compromise.""The people of Israel are not the occupiers in the land of Israel," Netanyahu said, citing "history, archaeology, and common sense.""I want peace because I believe it will bring a better future for my people," he said, calling for one which brings "rock-solid security arrangements on the ground.""As the Prime Minister of Israel, I am entrusted with the awesome of responsibility of protecting the Jewish people and the Jewish state," he said. "I will never waver on that responsibility."

Partnership for peace in the Middle East

"In Israel, we have a record of making the impossible, possible," Netanyahu said. "We have made the desert flourish. We have led the world in technological innovation."But in order for Israel to "reach its full potential," he said, "the template for peace must change.""There is a new Middle East. It has many dangers, but also many opportunities. We are working to work together with our global partners to face those dangers and seize those new opportunities.""All of this may fly in the face of conventional wisdom, but it is the truth," he said. "And the truth most be spoken - especially here, at the United Nations."

War of words

Speaking just before takeoff on his way to New York, Netanyahu reiterated his pledge to "refute the lies" against Israel at the UN General Assembly, particularly in the speech by Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, who accused Israel of “genocide” and “war crimes”."In my speech to the General Assembly, I will refute the lies that are being told about us and I will tell the truth about our state and the heroic soldiers of the IDF, the most moral army in the world," Netanyahu said on the tarmac at Ben Gurion airport near Tel Aviv before boarding the plane.Netanyahu's response will reportedly be "razor sharp," according to close confidantes of the Prime Minister, who added that it will be "worth the wait."On Friday, Abbas made a pathos-laden speech to the UNGA, vowing to prosecute Israel for "war crimes" in International Criminal Court (ICC)."There is an occupation that must end now," he claimed. "There is a people that must be freed immediately. The hour of independence of the state of Palestine has arrived."He did not set a deadline for fast-tracking to what he claimed would be "Palestinian statehood," after aides suggested they were eyeing 2017 as a possible date.Describing Israel's defensive operation in Gaza as a "genocidal crime," Abbas pledged: "We will not forget and we will not forgive, and we will not allow war criminals to escape punishment."Abbas’s speech garnered strong reactions from the U.S. - which called the tirade "offensive" - and from Israeli MKs across the political spectrum.

U.S., Kurds strike at Islamic State in Syria-Reuters-By Mariam Karouny and Jonny Hogg-SEPT 29,14-YAHOONEWS

BEIRUT/MURSITPINAR Turkey (Reuters) - U.S. warplanes attacked Islamic State targets in Syria overnight, in raids that a group monitoring the war said killed civilians as well as jihadist fighters.The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the strikes hit mills and grain storage areas in the northern Syrian town of Manbij, in an area controlled by Islamic State, killing at least two civilian workers.Strikes on a building on a road leading out of the town also killed a number of Islamic State fighters, said Rami Abdulrahman, who runs the observatory, which gathers information from sources in Syria.The U.S. military said on Monday an American air strike targeted Islamic State vehicles in a staging area adjacent to a grain storage facility near Manbij, but it had no evidence so far of civilian casualties.While raids in Iraq and Syria have taken a toll on Islamic State equipment and fighters on the ground, there is no sign the tide is turning against the group, which controls large areas of both countries.A U.S. Air Force general said Islamic State militants were changing their tactics in the face of American air strikes in Iraq and Syria, abandoning large formations such as convoys that had been easier for the U.S. military to target.“They are a smart adversary, and they have seen that that's not effective for their survival, so they are now dispersing themselves,” Air Force Major General Jeffrey Harrigian said at a Pentagon news conference.That “requires us to work harder to locate them, and then develop the situation to appropriately target them”, he said.In a statement to the United Nations that appeared to give approval of U.S. and Arab air strikes in Syria against the militants, Syria's foreign minister said his country backed the campaign against Islamic State.Syria "stands with any international effort aimed at fighting and combating terrorism", said Walid al-Moualem, whose government has long been an international pariah because of what critics say is its brutality in a civil war that has killed 190,000 people.U.S. congressional aides said Congress might not vote until next year on an authorization for President Barack Obama's air strikes against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, despite some lawmakers' insistence that approval is already overdue.Obama has said he does not need approval for the air strikes, despite the constitutional requirement that Congress authorize military action.The U.S.-led strikes have so far failed to halt an advance by Islamic State fighters in northern Syria on Kobani, a Kurdish town on the border with Turkey where fighting over the past week caused the fastest refugee flight of Syria's three-year-old war.At least 15 Turkish tanks could be seen at the frontier, some with guns pointed towards Syrian territory. More tanks and armored vehicles moved towards the border after shells landed in Turkey on Sunday and Monday.


The United States has been bombing Islamic State and other groups in Syria for a week with the help of Arab allies, and hitting targets in neighboring Iraq since last month. European countries have joined the campaign in Iraq but not in Syria.Islamic State, a Sunni militant group that broke off from al Qaeda, alarmed the West and the Middle East by sweeping through northern Iraq in June, slaughtering prisoners and ordering Shi'ites and non-Muslims to convert or die.It is battling Shi'ite-backed governments in both Iraq and Syria, as well as other Sunni groups in Syria and Kurdish groups in both countries, part of complex multi-sided civil wars in which nearly every country in the Middle East has a stake.The head of Syria's al Qaeda branch, the Nusra Front, a Sunni militant group that is a rival of Islamic State and has also been targeted by U.S. strikes, said Islamists would carry out attacks on the West in retaliation for the campaign.Obama has worked since August to build an international coalition to combat the fighters, describing them last week in an address to the United Nations as a "network of death".His comments in an interview broadcast on Sunday that U.S. intelligence had underestimated Islamic State offered an explanation for why Washington appeared to have been taken by surprise when the fighters surged through northern Iraq in June.The militants had gone underground when U.S. forces quashed al Qaeda in Iraq with the aid of local tribes during the U.S. war there that ended in 2011, Obama told CBS's "60 Minutes"."But over the past couple of years, during the chaos of the Syrian civil war, where essentially you have huge swathes of the country that are completely ungoverned, they were able to reconstitute themselves and take advantage of that chaos," he said.Obama's remarks came under fire on Monday from several U.S. lawmakers and members of the intelligence community."This was not an intelligence community failure but a failure by policy makers to confront the threat," said Mike Rogers, Republican chairman of the House of Representative Intelligence Committee.


Gunfire rang out from across the border, and a plume of smoke rose over Kobani as periodic shelling by Islamic State fighters took place. Kurds watching the fighting from the Turkish side of the border said the Syrian Kurdish group, the YPG, was putting up a strong defense."Many Islamic State fighters have been killed. They're not taking the bodies with them," said Ayhan, a Turkish Kurd who had spoken by phone with one of his friends fighting with the YPG. He said Kurdish forces had picked up eight Islamic State bodies.At Mursitpinar, the nearby border crossing, scores of young men were returning to Syria saying they would join the fight. More refugees were fleeing in the opposite direction."Because of the bombs, everyone is running away. We heard people have been killed," said Xelil, a 39-year-old engineer who fled Kobani on Monday. "The YPG have got light weapons, but Islamic State has big guns and tanks."A local official in Kobani said Islamic State continued to besiege the town from the east, west and south and that the militants were 10 km (6 miles) from the outskirts."From the morning there has been shelling into Kobani and ... maybe about 20 rockets," Idris Nassan, deputy foreign minister in a local Kurdish administration said by phone. He said the rockets had killed at least three people in the town.Turkey has not permitted its own Kurds to cross to join the battle: "If they've got Syrian identity or passports, they can go. But only Syrians, not Turks," said one Turkish official at the border where security has been tightened.A NATO member with the most powerful army in the area, Turkey has so far kept out of the U.S.-led coalition, angering many of its own Kurds who say the policy has abandoned their cousins in Syria to the wrath of Islamic State fighters.(Additiona reporting by Sylvia Westall in Beirut, Philip Stewart, Patricia Zengerle and Mark Hosenball in Washington; Writing by Sylvia Westall, Peter Graff and Giles Elgood; Editing by Philippa Fletcher, Peter Cooney and Ken Wills)

Qatar's foreign minister denies paying ransoms to militant groups-Reuters-By Daniel Bases-SEPT 29,14-YAHOONEWS

PRINCETON N.J. (Reuters) - Qatari Foreign Minister Khaled al-Attiya defended on Monday his government's connections with armed militant groups in the Middle East and its involvement in negotiating the release of hostages but denied ever paying ransoms to secure their freedom."No, Qatar does not pay ransoms. Again, Qatar will not apologize for any soul or life we saved in Syria. If we can mediate to save another life we will do so," al-Attiya said in response to a question from Reuters after giving a speech at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.The energy-rich Gulf Arab state, which does back some rebel factions fighting to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, has mediated the release of foreign and Syrian captives on several occasions in the course of Syria's three-year-old civil war.Islamic State, a splinter of al Qaeda, has exploited the chaos in Syria to carve out territory in the country's eastern provinces and northern Iraq. It is accused of massacres and beheadings of civilians and soldiers.Qatar supported the U.S. strikes against Islamic State in Syria, contributing one plane on the first night of attacks on Tuesday but did not take an active role in the operation.Other U.S. allies Jordan, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia joined in the strikes. All are ruled by Sunni Muslims and are opponents of Assad, a member of a Shi'ite-derived sect, and his main regional ally, Shi'ite Iran.Although the Gulf states all oppose Assad, Qatar has long faced criticism, including from its Gulf Arab neighbors, for using its vast oil and gas wealth to back Islamists across the region including groups inside Syria.Qatar assured the West on Sept. 24 it was not aiding Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.In September it helped negotiate the release of 45 Fijian U.N. Peacekeepers taken hostage along the Syrian/Israeli border after being attacked by Islamist militant groups, including the al-Nusra Front, an al Qaeda affiliate, in the volatile area between Syria and Israel."The Fijians were working close with us, so they saw they saw our steps and movement to release their soldiers. We don’t believe in paying ransoms. This is another way of fueling, if you may call it supporting through the backdoor, and this we don’t do," al-Attiya said.Qatar helped secure the release, among others, of Peter Theo Curtis, an American held for nearly two years by al-Nusra; 13 Greek Orthodox nuns in March after more than three months of being held by Islamist fighters. The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights identified the nuns captors as al-Nusra."Sometimes criticized, this important and complicated role should neither be questioned nor taken for granted," he said, adding: "To the naked eye, Qatar might be a challenging case to fully understand, especially in the context of non-stop media bashing predicated by hired guns and a few lobbyists."(Reporting by Daniel Bases; Editing by Lisa Shumaker)

Suspect in Oklahoma beheading expected to be charged with murder-reuters-By Heide Brandes-SPT 29,14-YAHOONEWS

OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - Oklahoma plans to file a murder charge as early as Tuesday against Alton Nolen, who is suspected of beheading a former co-worker at a food distribution center last week, prosecutors said.The Federal Bureau of Investigation is also looking into Nolen's background for any potential religious ties to the attack after former colleagues said he had attempted to convert them to Islam. Police said Nolen had recently become a Muslim.Nolen, 30, is suspected of attacking two women shortly after being fired on Thursday at Vaughan Foods in Moore, a suburb of Oklahoma City, police said."The District Attorney's office anticipates a charging decision in the Alton Nolen case early Tuesday afternoon," it said in a statement.Police said he stabbed and then severed the head of 54-year-old Colleen Hufford and attacked 43-year-old Traci Johnson before being shot by Mark Vaughan, the company's chief operating officer who is also a sheriff's deputy.Johnson is expected to recover, police said.The FBI investigation comes as Islamist militants fighting in Iraq and Syria have released videos that purported to show the beheadings of two U.S. journalists and a British aid worker.Police said a Facebook page for Nolen, under his Muslim name Jah'Keem Yisrael, contained anti-American and pro-Islamic jihad comments.A woman who said she was Nolen's mother took to social media to apologize to the victims of the attack."My heart is just so heavy right now," Joyce Nolen said in a Facebook posting over the weekend."I want to apologize to both families, because this is not Alton."Megan Nolen, the suspect' sister, said in the same video that Alton was not a violent person.Alton Nolen underwent surgery at a local hospital after being shot and was expected to survive, Moore police said.Nolen had a non-violent criminal record, including drug-related arrests, a jail escape and resisting police, authorities said.A group of Oklahoma lawmakers in the heavily Republican state issued a statement that suggested the attack might have been related to militant Islam and not sparked by a workplace dispute."Unfortunately, jihadism is no longer confined to foreign soil. We must be alert to it here and take steps to counter the doctrine, institutions and organizations that foster it," the Counterterrorism Caucus of the Oklahoma Legislature said.(Writing by Jon Herskovitz; Editing by Doina Chiacu and Eric Walsh)

Investor clauses could be left out of EU-US trade deal-29.09.14 @ 18:50-EUOBSERVER-By Benjamin Fox

BRUSSELS - The EU's likely next trade commissioner has signalled that controversial investor protection rules allowing companies to sue governments could ultimately be left out of a transatlantic trade deal with the United States."I don't exclude that in the end it will be taken out," Swedish nominee Cecilia Malmstrom told MEPs during a public hearing on Monday (29 September), although she insisted that it would be 'premature' to exclude the clause from the talks, known as TTIP, already.The status of the investor protection clauses, known as investor state dispute settlement, dominated the three hours of questioning faced by Malmstrom, currently serving as the EU executive's home affairs commissioner. The mechanism allows companies to take legal action against governments if their decisions risk undermining their investments.Critics of ISDS claim that investor claims can prevent governments from passing legislation in fields such as environmental and social protection, enabling corporations to claim potentially unlimited damages in "arbitration panels" if their profits are adversely affected by new regulations.Although Malmstrom's answers were more critical of ISDS provisions than the incumbent commissioner Karel de Gucht, with the Swedish official remarking that "I agree that there are problems with ISDS because there have been abuses," her responses will fall short of expectations for a number of MEPs.While leaving her options open on the EU-US talks, Malmstrom ruled out the possibility of re-opening the just-concluded trade agreement with Canada to exclude ISDS, commenting that "eliminating ISDS from the Canada agreement would be a very bad idea" and could "unravel the agreement".On Friday (26 September), Green MEP Sven Giegold published a draft of Malmstrom's written replies to questions posed by the committee in which the commissioner designate indicated that she would be prepared to leave TTIP out of the negotiations.However, commission officials quickly backtracked, claiming that the answer had been based on the inaccurate reporting of a quote made by Jean-Claude Juncker, the next commission president.Addressing MEPs, Malmstrom apologised for what she described as a "mix-up" in sending her written answers to the committee.EU countries are already signed up to over 1,400 ISDS agreements, but the question of whether such provisions should be included in TTIP has become a sticking point in the talks.Last week, German economics minister Sigmar Gabriel called on the commission to re-open the trade talks with the Canadian government to remove ISDS, on the basis that foreign investors already have sufficient legal protection in national courts.David Martin, trade spokesman for the centre-left Socialist and Democrat group told Malmstrom that ISDS had become "a toxic issue for this parliament".In response, Malmstrom said that MEPs had previously tasked the commission with drawing up a common EU approach to ISDS. "We need to limit the scope for abuse and increase transparency… make it clear that it can only be used as a last resort" she remarked.The parliament's left-wing and Green groups have said they will not support future trade agreements which include ISDS provisions.However, both US and EU trade officials have so far argued that ISDS should remain in any pact, and that it would not limit the right of governments to legislate in the public interest.Meanwhile, Malmstrom promised she would increase MEPs' access to negotiation documents and publish a list of her meetings and correspondence with lobbyists on the trade talks, commenting that the EU executive "must demonstrate that we are not negotiating a secret deal behind the parliament's back."The hearings for the 27 commission nominees will continue this week and will conclude on 7 October. MEPs will then vote on whether to back the commission team assembled by Jean-Claude Juncker.

Ukraine wary of EU's Russia gas deal-29.09.14 @ 18:12-EUOBSERVER-By Andrew Rettman

BRUSSELS - The EU is keen for Ukraine to accept a winter deal on Russian gas, but Ukraine is wary of the terms and of broader EU-Russia energy ties.The deal - put forward by the European Commission in talks in Berlin last Friday (26 September) - currently exists as three sheets of paper with no legal status or signatures.It is being discussed in Kiev and Moscow. Brussels hopes they will agree to it by the end of the week and turn into a “binding protocol” by the end of next week.If they do not, people in eastern EU states, the Western Balkans, and Ukraine will be at risk of electricity shortages and freezing in their homes during winter.If they do, Ukraine will pay Russia $3.1 billion of debt and pre-pay for gas each month at $385 per thousand cubic metres (tcm), while Russia will deliver 5 billion cubic metres (bcm) of gas between now and April.An EU source told EUobserver “the Russian side is basically in agreement already, but the Ukraine side is being more cautious”.A Ukrainian diplomat gave one reason why Kiev is unhappy. He said the market price for gas should be $250/tcm and that Russian gas firm Gazprom is helping the Kremlin to “pay for the war” in east Ukraine.“Why should we support a company that is supporting terrorists in Ukraine and even paying for this war?” he told EUobserver.A Ukrainian analyst, Michael Gonchar, who used to be a senior executive at Ukraine’s top gas company, Naftogaz, and who has read the EU’s three-page accord, gave a less emotional response.He said the “protocol” should be enshrined in international law if Gazprom is to stick to it. He added that it should spell out how much of the 5 bcm is to be delivered to Ukraine each month, how much of it is to be transited to the EU, and how much is to stay in Ukraine.“This deal is not good for us because it is too vague, so Gazprom can play with it to exert pressure”, he noted.Gonchar said one scenario is that Gazprom will reduce Ukraine supplies, claim that Ukraine stole the gas, and use the crunch to urge the EU to let it pump more gas via the Nord Stream pipeline to Germany.The Ukrainian diplomat also complained the EU rejected all its energy security ideas in the past few months.Kiev suggested the EU, Russia, and Ukraine should put monitors at pumping stations to verify any allegations of “stolen” volumes and that EU firms should buy gas at the Russia-Ukraine border instead of the EU-Ukraine border so they have more control of transit.The diplomat added the commission has put on ice its three-year old probe into Gazprom price-fixing in Europe for fear of annoying Russia too much.“There is no motivation from high-ranking authorities to conclude this. They have all the files but they are still waiting for the political signal”, he said.For her part, a commission spokeswoman, Marlene Holzner, said the monitoring and gas-purchasing ideas are “old … we are moving away from these steps, which were designed to help cope with a crisis, to a situation where the gas will keep on flowing despite the [Russia-Ukraine] conflict”.Another commission spokesman, Antoine Colombani, said the Gazprom probe is “actively ongoing” and that it is “normal” for complex cases to take a long time.Meanwhile, even if the winter gas deal goes ahead, it might not be enough to keep everyone warm.The 5 bcm figure is based on EU and Ukraine needs factoring in reverse flows from Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia to Ukraine.But Hungary last week stopped supplies citing “technical reasons” after a visit to Budapest by the Gazprom CEO.The commission’s energy supremo, Gunther Oettinger, who drafted the Berlin agreement, said in the German capital on Friday that Hungary did nothing wrong.“[EU] member states also need to fill their own storage tanks, so I don’t think this is a blockade [by Russia]”, he told press.He added that Slovakia’s contracts with Gazprom also mean that it can refuse to let it use some of its pipelines to reverse-supply Ukraine.Holzner on Monday added that while European Energy Community (EEC) rules oblige Hungary to deliver the gas to Ukraine “in principle” the terms of individual contracts with Russia trump the EEC regime.The EEC is an energy club created by the EU and Western Balkan states, Moldova, and Ukraine in 2005.

I could back No vote' on EU, Cameron says-29.09.14 @ 09:21-EUOBSERVER-By Benjamin Fox

BRUSSELS - David Cameron has suggested that he would campaign for Britain to leave the EU if he is unable to renegotiate the country's membership terms.Speaking in a BBC interview on Sunday (28 September), the UK prime minister said "if I thought that it wasn’t in Britain’s interests to be in the EU I wouldn’t argue for us to be in it.""If I don't achieve that, it will be for the British public to decide whether to stay in or get out".Cameron plans to renegotiate Britain's EU status before holding an in/out referendum in 2017, assuming his Conservative Party wins next May's general election.“I want the 27 other countries in Europe to see that there is a plan here – that can end with a reformed EU and a reformed relationship with Britain and Britain staying in", he added on Sunday.But his hopes of keeping his party united on Europe took a blow over the weekend, when backbench MP Mark Reckless defected to the anti-EU Ukip party on the eve of the Conservative's party conference in Birmingham.The move, the second Ukip defection in a month, means that Cameron is likely to tack to the right in a bid to prevent further MPs switching sides.In his conference address, Cameron is to demand that governments be given more control over the EU's “freedom of movement” rules which allow EU citizens to live and work in other countries in the bloc.He is also expected to reiterate the need to crack down on "welfare tourism".Reckless said his decision to join Nigel Farage's Ukip was prompted by Cameron's stance on immigration and the EU. Cameron was "not serious about renegotiation", he noted.Meanwhile, Farage has hinted that talks are ongoing between Ukip officials and a handful of MPs from the Conservative and Labour benches.Dan Hannan, an MEP and close friend of Reckless and Douglas Carswell (who defected in August), has been widely touted as a likely target for Farage, although he has insisted that he will not leave the Conservatives.

Spain to block referendum, after Catalonia signs decree-29.09.14 @ 08:51-EUOBSERVER-By Andrew Rettman

BRUSSELS - Catalans have switched on a giant clock in Barcelona to count the days and hours to a referendum on secession on 9 November after local leader Artur Mas signed the project into law on Saturday (27 September).But Madrid says it will not go ahead.Spain’s deputy PM, Soraya Saenz de Santamaria, told press shortly after Mas’ signature ceremony that “this referendum will not take place because it is not constitutional”.She added: “No government and no single person is above the will of sovereignty, and it is the government’s job to ensure that the law is not broken … No one is above democracy, nor can they decide [which laws] should be obeyed and which should no longer be obeyed”.The government says that under Spain’s 1978 charter only it has the power to call a vote and that all Spaniards must be involved in the outcome.Mas says the “consultation’s” non-binding nature means it can go ahead under a local decree.The Spanish government is to hold an emergency cabinet meeting on Monday and to refer the case to the Constitutional Court, which is expected to take its side.But Mas on Saturday said: “We cannot fall into the trap of immobility, the trappings of legality, and do nothing at all … Catalonia wants to decide its own political future, peacefully and democratically”.He referred to Catalonia as a “nation”. Speaking from Barcelona’s medieval palace, he added that over the past “seven centuries, only external impositions have caused the suspension of self-government, self-government which the will of the Catalan people has always sought to reclaim”.His office the same day published a list of voting stations and unveiled a €9 million budget for the project.It said the vote will be guarded by 9,200 local police and that 10,800 ballot boxes will be ready in October.Polls indicate that most Catalans would say Yes if given the chance.Forty five percent of them also say they want Mas to abide by the Constitutional Court decision.But for his part, Oriol Junqueras, the head of Catalonia’s left-wing ERC party, earlier this month called for civil disobedience if the vote does not go ahead. Pedro Sanchez, the head of the left-wing opposition PSD party in Madrid also warned that “after 9 November goes by and there is no vote, we'll have to face emotions in Catalonia: frustration; anger; discouragement; and even resistance."The Catalan confrontation comes after Scotland voted No to independence on 18 September.Mas has noted he would have preferred a Yes, but says the way that Britain handled the situation should be a model for Spain.A majority of Basque people in north-west Spain also want the chance to vote on their status.Separatists in Belgium and Sardinia have said the developments in Scotland and Spain have given a boost to their hopes for independence as well.

09/29/2014 - VATICAN INSIDER-Francis: Beware of Satan, he seems good but he wants to destroy us-Pope Francis among the faithful-At this morning’s mass in St. Martha’s House, the Pope said: “The angels defend us. They fight against the devil to let mankind win.” "This struggle is a daily reality in Christian life, in our hearts, in our lives, in our families, in our people, in our churches ... If we do not struggle, we will be defeated”-Domenico Agasso jr

Rome-“Satan is the enemy of mankind. He is astute: the first page of Genesis tells us so, he is astute.  He presents things as if they were a good thing. But his intention is destruction. And the angels defend us. They defend mankind and they defend the God-Man, the superior Man, Jesus Christ who is the perfection of humanity, the most perfect.” This was Francis’ message in the homily pronounced at this morning’s mass in St. Martha’s House on the Feast of the Holy Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. “The angels defend us,” he explained. “The Church honours the Angels, because they are the ones who will be in the glory of God – they are in the glory of God - because they defend the great hidden mystery of God, namely, that the Word was made flesh,” Vatican Radio quotes the Pope saying. "The task of the people of God - the Pope said - is to safeguard man: the man Jesus” because "He is the man who gives life to all men". Instead, in his plans for destruction, Satan has invented "humanistic explanations that go against man, against humanity and against God.” "This struggle is a daily reality in Christian life, in our hearts, in our lives, in our families, in our people, in our churches ... If we do not struggle, we will be defeated.”The Pope based today’s teaching on readings which illustrate the vision of the glory of God described by the prophet Daniel with the Son of Man, Jesus Christ, before the Father; the archangel Michael and his angels fighting against "the great dragon, the ancient serpent, he who is called the devil" and "seduces all of inhabited earth," but who is defeated, as affirmed by the Book of Revelation; and the Gospel in which Jesus says to Nathanael: "You will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.”Pope Francis focused on "the struggle between God and the devil.” "This struggle takes place after Satan seeks to destroy the woman about to give birth to a child. Satan always tries to destroy man: the man that Daniel saw there, in glory, and whom Jesus told Nathanael would come in glory. From the very beginning, the Bible speaks to us of this: Satan’s [use of ] seduction to destroy. Maybe out of envy. We read in Psalm 8: 'Thou hast made ​​man superior to the angels,' and that angel of great intelligence could not bear this humiliation, that a lower creature was made superior to him; thus he tried to destroy it.”Satan, therefore, seeks to destroy humanity, all of us: "So many projects, except for one's own sins, but many, many projects for mankind’s dehumanization are his work, simply because he hates mankind. He is astute: the first page of Genesis tells us so, he is astute.  He presents things as if they were a good thing.  But his intention is destruction. And the angels defend us. They defend mankind and they defend the God-Man, the superior Man, Jesus Christ who is the perfection of humanity, the most perfect. This is why the Church honors the Angels, because they are the ones who will be in the glory of God – they are in the glory of God - because they defend the great hidden mystery of God, namely, that the Word was made flesh.”The Pope then stressed that “the task of the people of God is to safeguard man: the man Jesus” because "He is the man who gives life to all men". Instead, in his plans for destruction, Satan has invented "humanistic explanations that go against man, against humanity and against God.”"This struggle is a daily reality in Christian life, in our hearts, in our lives, in our families, in our people, in our churches ... If we do not struggle, we will be defeated. But the Lord has given this task mainly to the angels: to do battle and win. And the final song of Revelation, after this battle, is so beautiful: Now have salvation and power come, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Anointed. For the accuser of our brothers is cast out, who accuses them before our God day and night.”

Hong Kong protesters stockpile supplies, prepare for long haul-Reuters-By Clare Baldwin and James Pomfret-SEPT 29,14-YAHOONEWS

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of pro-democracy protesters extended a blockade of Hong Kong streets on Tuesday, stockpiling supplies and erecting makeshift barricades ahead of what some fear may be a push by police to clear the roads before Chinese National Day.Riot police shot pepper spray and tear gas at protesters at the weekend but withdrew on Monday to ease tension as the ranks of demonstrators swelled. Protesters spent the night sleeping or holding vigil unharassed on normally busy roads in the global financial hub.Throughout the night, rumors rippled through crowds of protesters that police were preparing to move in again. As the sun rose many remained wary, especially on the eve of Wednesday's anniversary of the Communist Party's foundation of the People's Republic of China in 1949."Many powerful people from the mainland will come to Hong Kong. The Hong Kong government won't want them to see this, so the police must do something," Sui-ying Cheng, 18, a freshman at Hong Kong University's School of Professional and Continuing Education, said of the National Day holiday."We are not scared. We will stay here tonight. Tonight is the most important," she said.The protesters, mostly students, are demanding full democracy and have called on the city's leader Leung Chun-ying to step down after Beijing on Aug. 31 ruled out free elections for Hong Kong's leader, known as the Chief Executive, in 2017.China rules Hong Kong under a "one country, two systems" formula that accords the former British colony a degree of autonomy and freedoms not enjoyed in mainland China, with universal suffrage set as an eventual goal.Protesters massed in at least four of Hong Kong's busiest areas, including Admiralty, where Hong Kong's government is headquartered, the Central business district, Causeway Bay, one of the city's most bustling shopping areas, and the densely populated Mong Kok district in Kowloon.Organizers said as many as 80,000 people thronged the streets after the protests flared on Friday night. No independent estimate of numbers was available."I must stress that the events happening now cannot be attributed to the students or Occupy Central. It has evolved into a civil movement," said Alex Chow, the leader of the Hong Kong Federation of Students.Protesters set up supply stations with water bottles, fruit, crackers, disposable raincoats, towels, goggles, face masks and tents, indicating they were in for the long haul.Some lugged metal road barricades into positions on the edge of crowds, presumably to slow a police advance. In at least one location, several minivans and a truck were parked in rows in an apparent effort to block a road.


Communist Party leaders worry that calls for democracy could spread to the mainland, and have been aggressively censoring news and social media comments about the Hong Kong demonstrations.The movement presents Beijing's ruling Communist Party with a difficult challenge. Cracking down too hard could shake confidence in market-driven Hong Kong, which has a separate legal system from the rest of China. Not reacting firmly enough, however, could embolden dissidents on the mainland.The outside world has looked on warily, concerned that the clashes could spread and trigger a much harsher crackdown."The United States urges the Hong Kong authorities to exercise restraint and for protesters to express their views peacefully," White House spokesman Josh Earnest told a daily briefing on Monday.Human Rights Watch voiced concern about police use of force, and called on Leung to "show the kind of tolerance for peaceful protest for which Hong Kong is known, not the intolerance for it in the mainland".The demonstrations, labeled "illegal" by China's Communist-run government in Beijing, are the worst in Hong Kong since China resumed its rule over the former British colony in 1997.An editorial in the state-run Global Times newspaper said on Tuesday the government would not change its policy "just because of the chaos created by the oppositionists", and it suggested that the authorities might let the protests run their course."Without changing the earlier decision, the central and Hong Kong governments can exercise a certain degree of restraint in handling the shutdown of the city's financial areas, so as to leave some time for local people to realize the harm done by the protesters' illegal acts," it said.The protests are expected to escalate on Wednesday, with residents of the nearby former Portuguese enclave of Macau also planning a rally."Maybe the police are planning a bigger operation for the coming night, so most of them need to rest and prepare," Stanley Fong, a 22-year-old property agent, said of the relative lack of police out on Monday night.


Televised scenes of the chaos in Hong Kong over the weekend have already made a deep impression outside the financial hub.That was especially the case in Taiwan, which has full democracy but is considered by Beijing as a renegade province that must one day be reunited with the mainland. Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou said Beijing needed "to listen carefully to the demands of the Hong Kong people".Britain said it was concerned about the situation and called for the right of protest to be protected.Earlier, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Beijing was "resolutely opposed to any country attempting in any way to support such illegal activities like 'Occupy Central'."Banks in Hong Kong, including HSBC , Citigroup , Bank of China <601988 .ss="">, Standard Chartered and DBS , shut some branches and advised staff to work from home or go to secondary branches on Monday.Financial fallout from the turmoil has been limited so far. Hong Kong shares <.HSI> ended down 1.9 percent on Monday.The protests have spooked tourists, with arrivals from China down sharply ahead of the National Day holidays, which are normally a peak. On Monday, Hong Kong canceled the city's fireworks display over the harbor, meant to mark the holiday. The United States, Australia and Singapore issued travel alerts.(Additional reporting by Donny Kwok, Elzio Barreto,; Venus Wu, Yimou Lee, Diana Chan, Kinling Lo, Twinnie Siu, Bobby Yip and Stefanie McIntyre in HONG KONG; Writing by John Ruwitch and Anne-Marie Roantree; Editing by Paul Tait)

At least 36 feared dead on Japanese volcano, search called off-Reuters-By Elaine Lies-SEPT 29,14-YAHOONEWS

TOKYO (Reuters) - At least 36 people are feared to have died after a Japanese volcano erupted without warning at the weekend, raining ash and stones on hikers, but the search for victims was abandoned on Monday because of fears of toxic gases.Rescuers at the peak of Mount Ontake, now an eerie moonscape under a thick layer of grey ash, on Monday found five more victims of Saturday's eruption at Japan's second-highest active volcano but authorities did not immediately confirm them as dead.The eruption of the 3,067-metre (10,062-foot) peak, 200 km (125 miles) west of Tokyo, took place as the hiking site was packed with climbers, including children, admiring autumn foliage under a brilliant blue sky.Twelve people have been confirmed dead in Japan's first fatal volcanic eruption since 1991, and 63 have been injured, some with broken bones. Eight were missing, but officials said some of them could possibly be among those who perished."It's my son, my second son. We've had absolutely no contact at all," a grey-haired man told Japanese television, adding that his 26-year-old son had gone to the mountain with his girlfriend. "We're utterly exhausted."More than 500 rescuers had been combing the summit, ploughing through knee-deep ash and passing mountain lodges with holes punched in their roofs by rocks shot out of the volcano.Helicopters lifted laden stretchers one by one from the summit on Monday, before rescue efforts were abandoned. As on Sunday, the smell of sulphur strengthened at the peak, fanning fears of toxic fumes and forcing rescuers off the mountain.Japan is one of the world's most seismically active nations. In 1991, 43 people died in a pyroclastic flow, a superheated current of gas and rock, at Mount Unzen in the southwest.Ontake, Japan's second-highest active volcano, last had a minor eruption seven years ago. Its last major eruption, the first on record, was in 1979.Hikers said there was no warning of Saturday's eruption just before noon and hundreds were trapped for hours before descent became possible later in the day."I felt a hot wind blast against my back and crouched down to the ground," a man told NTV. "I was sure I was going to die."It was natural that Japan's Meteorological Agency, which monitors volcanic activity, might reconsider its surveillance system, said Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga."However, I believe that, given current levels of knowledge, they made the only judgment they could," he told a news conference.Suga also said the eruption would have no impact on the restart of the Sendai nuclear plant in southwestern Japan, an area of active volcanic sites. The plant was just cleared to restart in early September.Experts said it was hard to have predicted the eruption, despite tremors in the area this month, since there were no other changes in the mountain.Also, the eruption appears to have resulted from a steam-driven explosion of a kind that is especially hard to forecast, said Toshitsugu Fujii, a volcano expert."They often occur quite suddenly and there is absolutely no guarantee that the earthquakes earlier this month were connected," he told a news conference on Sunday. "There is no guarantee of total safety when you're dealing with nature."(Additional reporting by Kaori Kaneko and Antoni Slodkowski; Editing by Clarence Fernandez and Robert Birsel)

Mexico official suspended after Hurricane Odile-Associated Press-SEPT 29,14-YAHOONEWS

MEXICO CITY (AP) — A Mexican official in Baja California Sur has been suspended amid reports linking him to possible looting in the aftermath of Hurricane Odile.A statement from the government of Los Cabos says the civil protection coordinator for Cabo San Lucas has been removed pending the outcome of his "legal situation" before prosecutors.It said Monday that the move does not prejudge his guilt or innocence.Many stores in Los Cabos had their shelves emptied in the days after the hurricane hit earlier this month, as power, water and telephone service remained out.Mexican media reported that a number of possibly ill-gotten items were found at the official's home, including a motorcycle, six tires, two sandwich makers and three microwave ovens.

GENESIS 1:5,14
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:(ISRAELS HOLY DAYS AND SABBATH STARTS AT 6PM) And for SIGNS (PROPHECY SIGNS TO HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE, OUR DAY)


LUKE 21:11
11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences;(BIOLOGICAL/CHEMICAL/NUCLEAR) and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.
15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.

Abbas Wants a State Instead of Israel'-Deputy Minister Akunis says Netanyahu will deliver 'the speech of truth' after Abbas's 'speech of lies.'By Shimon Cohen, Gil Ronen-First Publish: 9/28/2014, 7:23 PM-israelnationalnews
Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Office, MK Ofir Akunis (Likud), reacted sharply Sunday to the speech delivered by Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas at the United Nations General Assembly last week.Abbas “is making false and underhanded use of the podium at the UNGA to repeat the Palestinian lies that have become familiar to us in the 100-year conflict."In the face of Abbas's speech of lies, the prime minister must give a speech of truth, and he will do this,” Akunis said. No Jewish person, from the left or right wing, can help but be shocked by the toxic propaganda that Abbas used against Israel when he accused it of genocide.There is but one truth, Akunis explained. “Israel is right and the Palestinians are wrong. Israel wants peace and the Palestinians do not. Israel provides economic plenty even for those who are not Jews, and the Palestinian swant a Jew-free state.”"Abbas,” he added, “does not want a state beside Israel but a state instead of Israel. We are here to block him and to block the establishment of a Palestinian state on the hilltops of Judea and Samaria... These are tracts of land that have been ours for 4,000 years.”


1 And there was given me a(MEASURING) reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 But the court which is without the temple leave out,(TO THE WORLD NATIONS) and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.(JERUSALEM DIVIDED BUT THE 3RD TEMPLE ALLOWED TO BE REBUILT)

27 And he( THE ROMAN,EU PRESIDENT) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week:(1X7=7 YEARS) and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease,(3 1/2 yrs in TEMPLE SACRIFICES STOPPED) and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Temple Institute Raises $100k for Third Temple Plans-The Temple Institute’s crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for architectural plans for the Third Temple has raised $100,000.By Yaakov Levi-First Publish: 9/28/2014, 6:07 PM-israelnationalnews

The Temple Institute’s crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the modern architectural plans for the Third Holy Temple in Jerusalem came to a close on Rosh Hashanah after surpassing its $100,000 goal in 60 days. The initiative began on the first day of the month of Av, when Jews commemorate the destruction of the ancient Holy Temples. Almost 900 pledges have come in from more than 30 countries worldwide.Crowdfunding is a new method of fundraising that leverages the power of the Internet to gather investments or contributions from around the world. The Temple Institute used the Indiegogo platform to reach out to supporters, with links to social media pages, like Facebook, where the campaign page received 10,000 shares. A promotional video on the Facebook and Indiegogo pages, which depicts a digital rendition of the Holy Temple on the modern day Temple Mount, has been viewed by over 160,000 people.Jews have prayed to rebuild the Temple, three times daily since its destruction by Roman Legions in 70 CE. The Temple Institute's project to draw up architectural plans began three years ago with the Chamber of Hewn Stone, depicted in this video.The funds raised from the Indiegogo campaign will be used to continue the research of the Institute and to commission additional architectural plans. The architects will fuse Jewish law with modern technology to prepare for a fully modern third Temple, Kosher to the letter of the law but including modern conveniences like underground parking, heating and computerized washing stations that minimize water waste.Rabbi Chaim Richman, International Director of the Temple Institute explained why they chose the novel approach of fund raising through crowd funding: "We are constantly looking for ways to include as many people as possible in our mission to rebuild the Holy Temple. This is not about one group or organization, it's about bringing about a spiritual reunification of mankind, today with the help of the internet our message is resonating across the globe. Our decision to use Indiegogo for this campaign was an extension of our success on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter".

Safed Chief Rabbi Surprises Knesset C'tee with Temple Mount Call-Chief Rabbi of Tzfat Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu calls for Jews to be more protected on the Temple Mount, safeguarding of conversion process.-By Hillel Fendel-First Publish: 8/15/2014, 9:09 AM-israelnationalnews

Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu asked the police to enhance both security and accessibility for the increasing numbers of Jews visiting the Temple Mount.Rabbi Eliyahu first participated in a Knesset Interior Committee session on the topic of conversions to Judaism on Wednesday. He then made a surprise visit to a sub-committee meeting held later the same day. His goal was to encourage procedures to ease Jewish visits to Judaism's holiest site. Eldest son of the late saintly Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, the Chief Rabbi of Tzfat (Safed) called for an end to the "disgrace" on the Mount, and said that Jewish visitors must be protected more actively. "The number of Torah-observant visitors is increasing," the rabbi told the police representatives at the session, "and the questions I receive indicate that this rate will continue. I ask you: Please protect my children and my students!""Even at my own Sabbath table," Rabbi Eliyahu said with his characteristic twinkling smile, "there are dynamic discussions about whether to visit the holy site. Half of my children do so." He confirmed that his father, a former Chief Sephardic Rabbi of Israel, has called for the construction of a synagogue on the Temple Mount.Religious Jews often come under threat by Moslem crowds during their visits to the Mount. In addition, the police often restrict their visits, closing the site to Jews altogether for days at a time.Earlier on Wednesday, Rabbi Eliyahu addressed the full Knesset Interior Committee regarding the current proposed bill to ease the process of converting to Judaism. He said that the Chief Rabbinate must remain the central player in everything having to do with conversion, and that if not, conversions in Israel are simply liable not to be trusted by the religious establishment.

He Didn't Come Here to Peel Carrots'-Knife-wielding terrorist who crossed into Israel from Gaza was caught by alert security officer.By Orli Harari, Gil Ronen-First Publish: 9/28/2014, 8:00 PM-israelnationalnews

The Security Officer for the Sdot Negev Regional Council, Rafi Babiyan, told IDF Radio Sunday about the arrest of the terrorist who infiltrated from Gaza to one of the region's communities."We received an alert about a possible infiltration from Gaza,” he recounted. “The security men and the Military Security Officers started to roll out the emergency preparedness squads, in order to protect the communities. As we combed the area, we received word that a suspect was identified east of the community in an open field."They overpowered him and took away his weapons, a spike and a knife,” said Babiyan. When asked what the terrorists' intentions were he said wryly: “I do not know where he was headed but let's just say this: he did not come to peel carrots at Kibbutz Alumim.”The terrorist was caught eight kilometers inside Israel's territory – meaning that he penetrated a long way into Israel before he was caught. “The event is an irregular one,” agreed Babiyan, “and I am certain that the IDF will hold an inquiry into the event and learn lessons so that this kind of thing will not happen.”Tamir Idan, Head of the Sdot Negev Regional Council, credited the local Military Security Officer [a position usually referred to by the Hebrew acronym 'ravshatz'] for catching the suspect and noted that the IDF intends to slash the number of such officers in the region or turn them into part-time employees."Today, too, the ravshatzim proved their neccessity and their great contribution to the security array in the southern communities,” Idan said. “I am certain that following the lessons learned in Operation Protective Edge, and the latest event, the minister of defense and the prime minister will reconsider the decision to cancel ravshatz positions and cut them.”

IDF Opens New Mixed-Gender Battalion-The Bardelas battalion will be comprised of 50% women and 50% men and serve mostly in Central Command.By Gil Ronen-First Publish: 9/28/2014, 9:31 PM-israelnationalnews

The IDF is plowing ahead with its gender-mixng experiment and establishing a new mixed-gender battalion called Bardelas (cheetah), according to the IDF Website.The battalion will mostly be in charge of routine security in the Central Command region, which includes Judea and Samaria. It joins the mixed-gender Karakal battalion, which has been in existence for a decade.Fifty percent of the battalion's soldiers will be women.Critics of the gender-mixing experiment in the IDF have noted that women who serve in combat units suffer from an extremely high rate of injury and that often, entire platoons are disabled because of this. According to Col. (res.) Raz Sagi, who has authored a book on the subject, injuries suffered by women tend to be more serious and often involve stress fractures at the hip and uterine prolapse, which can cause permanent inability to give birth.In addition, the critics point out that in order to enable enough women to pass the physical tests for entry into the combat units, requirements for women are significantly lower than for men. In a physical test that includes jumping over a wall, for instance, the women are given a bench to step on as they climb over the wall. Another technique adopted by the military to mask gender differences is to have trainees run long distances in circles rather than in straight lines, making it less embarrassing for the women to lag behind the men, because no one can tell what lap they have completed at any given point in time.There is also great concern about the fate of women who are taken captive by the enemy. A military source told Arutz Sheva that in the recent fighting in Gaza, there were strict orders never to allow a female soldier to go anywhere without male accompaniment.The gender experiment in the IDF was largely conceived by a “gender team” that was led by Professor Naomi Chazan in the early 2000s.

88 Senators to Kerry: Hand Gaza to the PA-Senators urge the Obama administration to act to take Gaza away from Hamas and hand it over to the PA.By Ben Ariel, Canada-First Publish: 9/24/2014, 10:52 PM-israelnationalnews

88 senators are urging the Obama administration to act to take Gaza away from its Hamas terrorist rulers and hand it over to the Palestinian Authority (PA), The Daily Beast reports.In a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry obtained by the website, the 88 senators write, “We must support efforts to enable the Palestinian Authority to exercise real power in Gaza. Hamas has demonstrated conclusively both that it has no interest in peace with Israel and that it has no concern for the well-being of Gaza residents.”The letter to Kerry was circulated in the senate by Sen. Kelly Ayotte, a Republican and Sen. Bob Casey, a Democrat, according to The Daily Beast.The senators said in the letter they support humanitarian aid to Gaza but will oppose reconstruction of Gaza until Hamas disarms, a position which is the same as the Israeli government and which Hamas has rejected.The senators also urge Kerry to continue to work against efforts from PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to target Israel in international forums, such as the International Criminal Court.“All Palestinians deserve a government that will seek to advance their safety and prosperity—not use them as human shields,” the senators wrote.“Real peace between Israelis and Palestinians will require a Palestinian partner that controls the West Bank and Gaza, is focused on economic development and stability in both areas, and will accept Gaza’s demilitarization. We must start this process now.”This is not the first time that senators have urged Kerry to take action with regards to Hamas. In May, U.S. Senators Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) called on the Secretary of State to publicly state that there will be an immediate cut-off of relevant U.S. assistance to the PA, should its unity government fail to comply with the detailed requirements set forth by the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006.In September of 2011, a $192 million aid package was frozen by Congress after the PA submitted a failed unilateral bid for United Nations membership.Members of Congress later released $40 million in economic and humanitarian funding for the PA, saying it is “vital to establishing and strengthening the foundations necessary for a future Palestinian state.”In April of 2012, President Barack Obama bypassed a Congress block and signed a waiver declaring that aid to the Palestinian Authority is “important to the security interests of the United States.”(Arutz Sheva’s North American desk is keeping you updated until the start of the Rosh Hashanah holiday in New York.

Bennett: No Jews Will Be Afraid to Walk French Streets-On a visit to France Sunday, Economics Minister Naftali Bennett urged Jews still living in the country to come to Israel.By Yaakov Levi-First Publish: 9/28/2014, 10:51 PM-israelnationalnews

On a visit to France Sunday, Economics Minister Naftali Bennett urged Jews still living in the country to come to Israel. “Just this week we saw what hatred of Israel looks like,” Bennett told a crowd in Paris. “Our enemies fire rockets at our children and we defend ourselves, and then they get on the podium in the UN and accuse us of genocide,” Bennett said, referring to a speech given by Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas. “We say clearly that we will no longer allow Jews to remain defenseless, that no Jew will be afraid to walk the streets,” he said.Bennett arrived in France after several recent violent incidents against Jews in France. The most serious incident was an attempt by a Muslim mob to break into a synagogue in Paris in July. Muslim rioters surrounded Don Yitzchak Abarbanel Synagogue in the 11th arrondissement of Paris, and threw rocks into the house of worship. Large scale police forces were called to extricate the Jews.Bennett participated in an event in the synagogue, and is set to meet with community leaders and government officials, among them Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve, with whom he will discuss security issues affecting French Jews.“With this visit, we express our connection to our brothers in France and all of Europe,” said Bennett. “If others will not be here to defend you, the State of Israel will always be by the side of all Jews, whoever and wherever they are,” Bennett added.
