NOBODY ALLOWED IN MUSLIM HOUSING BUT MUSLIMS
Dear Stan,Austin Lewis is a 21-year-old Toronto man who’s paralyzed, and confined to a wheelchair. He needs public housing.But when Lewis applied to live in a taxpayer-subsidized apartment on Finch Avenue in Toronto, he was told he wasn’t allowed — because he wasn’t a Muslim!But here’s the craziest part: not only did the City of Toronto know about this ban on non-Muslims, they approved it in a special contract with the Muslim mosque that runs the place. So taxpayers of all religions are forced to subsidize a special apartment building just for Muslims.No infidels allowed. Sharia law has come to Toronto — with City Hall’s blessing.You can see my shocking report on the subject here.We’ve simply got to spread the word about this news — please forward this e-mail to as many friends as you can, and post the video on Facebook.But even that’s not enough.We have to tell Toronto Mayor John Tory, and the whole city council, that a “no infidels allowed” public housing policy is just as un-Canadian as a “no Jews allowed” or “no Blacks allowed” policy would be. It’s discriminatory. It’s just not the Canadian way.So we’ve set up a petition, on the website www.NoInfidelsAllowed.com. Just click here, and add your name to our list. We’ll send the petition to the mayor and the council. It’s important.I actually believe that private property owners should be allowed to decide who they rent to — even if they discriminate against “infidels” like Austin Lewis. But this is public housing. And taxpayer money shouldn’t go to set up a sharia law ghetto.Will you help me convince Toronto’s politicians to stop funding segregation in Canada? Please click here to join our fight for equality before the law.Yours truly, Ezra Levant -P.S. Please forward this e-mail to your friends, and ask them to watch the video and sign our petition now. It’s important! -P.P.S. As you know, we’re the only media in the country fighting back against this. If you want to chip in to help fund our independent journalism, please click here.

YAHUDA GLICK LAUNCHES NEW TEMPLE MOUNT TOUR GUIDE BOOK.
Opinion Article-The battle of perceptions-If Iran develops nuclear weapons, it’s got everything. It already has enough rockets to destroy Israel in a surprise attack. It would not be dissuaded by the fact that about 1.5 million Israeli Arabs would also die. Islam provides heaven’s glorious consolation for Muslim martyrs-2015-08-31 by Carlos Alberto Montaner
Its name is aseptic but also enormously controversial: Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. It’s the accord between the United States and Iran on the control and elimination of nuclear arms that Teheran proposed (or proposes) to manufacture. It was backed by the neighborhood biggies: the United Kingdom, France, Russia, China and Germany.Naturally, Israel hit the roof. If Iran develops nuclear weapons, it’s got everything. It already has enough rockets to destroy Israel in a surprise attack. It would not be dissuaded by the fact that about 1.5 million Israeli Arabs would also die. Islam provides heaven’s glorious consolation for Muslim martyrs.An exaggeration? That’s what the ayatollahs incessantly claim. Eighty years ago, many Jews refused to believe what a zealous imbecile with a ridiculous little moustache wrote in Mein Kampf. He ended up killing six million Jews and forever exterminated Europe’s brilliant Jewry.But Israel is not alone. Two hundred retired U.S. generals, admirals and vice-admirals have just signed a letter asking U.S. legislators not to support the pact. They’re doing it not only for Israel; they’re thinking of the interests of the United States and its allies.The arguments they wield are disturbing. The officers are certain that Iran will not abide by the agreement. That the non-manufacture of nuclear bombs cannot be verified. That the agreement gives Iran greater access to billions of dollars, many of which will help subsidize the Hezbollah terrorists. And that Iran’s nuclear capability will turn the Middle East into a place less safe than it already is, triggering a nuclear race with other Arab states.Curiously, the great Ayatollah Sayyad Ali Khamenei proved the U.S. officers right. After the accord was announced, he stated that Iran would not change its stance. The destruction of Israel continued to be a sacred and permanent objective.Of course, not all American officers have the perception of those who protested. Two weeks ago, three dozen former officers, equally high-ranking, asked Congress for the opposite -- support the pact inked by Barak Obama and John Kerry with the ayatollahs.They argued that the accord reduced the chances of conflict; they supposed that any noncompliance by Iran could be detected, and believed that there is no better option than the one achieved. It was the best of all possible pacts in the imperfect world of international relations.Somehow, the pro-pact officers respond to the United States’ nationalist trend expressed by theoreticians who are convinced that this huge country with 310 million inhabitants should not be drawn into a dangerous conflict by the State of Israel or any other nation in the world.In any case, why do Obama and Kerry deal with Iran? Judging from Kerry’s words, reported by the Reuters news agency, because they want to save the United States from the antipathy aroused by U.S. policy in the Middle East.They want the United States to be loved and admired and are bothered by the rejection that their country (apparently) provokes. Probably, like so many critical Americans, especially in the academic scene, they share some embarrassment over Washington’s traditional international conduct.In reality, Obama and Kerry have fallen into the trap of believing that the propaganda so far widely disseminated and forcefully hammered reflects the criteria of public opinion.They don’t realize that there is a permanent anti-American campaign, persistent and effective, that projects an alleged collective criterion that comes not from society in general but from a small and vociferous élite that distorts reality and has made “anti-Yankeeism” its leitmotif.Maybe when John Kerry protested against the war in Vietnam -- in which he fought -- or when Barack Obama was a “community organizer,” they coincided with the analyses of those who were ashamed of U.S. behavior, such as Noam Chomsky or the late Saul Alinsky.But that, strictly speaking, although it represents a majority opinion of university educators and is one of the left’s identifying marks, is not the opinion endorsed by most of the international community, especially ordinary men and women.The objective reality is that the United States is one of the world’s most admired countries, the nation where the poor of half the planet wish to live, as revealed by the huge poll conducted every year by Anholt-GfK Roper Nation Brands, whose pollsters question more than 20,000 people in 20 significant countries.In the indices they compile, until 2014 the United States headed the list of the ten most loved nations. Today the U.S. ranks second, now that Germany rose to Number One. The other eight are the usual suspects: England, France, Canada, Japan, Italy, Switzerland, Australia and Sweden.That’s the truth. The rest are perceptions. Sleights of hand.- See more at: http://www.friendsofisraelinitiative.org/article.php?c=171#sthash.xPKXcX2J.dpuf
Yehudah Glick Launches Campaign to Publish Groundbreaking Temple Mount Guidebook-By Abra Forman August 31, 2015 , 9:30 am
“Come, let us ascend to the mountain of the Lord.” (Isaiah 2:3)
Rabbi Yehudah Glick’s Temple Mount advocacy organization, the Temple Mount Heritage Foundation, has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign with the goal of raising enough money to publish a unique guidebook to the Temple Mount complex.The book, called “Arise and Ascend”, was written by Dr. Meir Antopolsky and produced as a joint effort between the Meeting Place Association and the Temple Mount Heritage Foundation with the goal of making the Temple Mount accessible and meaningful not only to its visitors, but to the millions of people around the world who want to learn more about the site, considered the holiest in Judaism.Because of the nature of the site, whose controversial history has led to a tense state of affairs in which Jewish and Christian visitors are nearly constantly harassed and threatened by Muslim agitators, the Temple Mount is not always a tourist-friendly place. There are no helpful pamphlets handed out at the entrance, and no informative signs on the buildings and features of the Mount. Without an expert guide, visitors are often unable to truly grasp the spiritual and historical importance of the Temple Mount.The creators of “Arise and Ascend” are hopeful that the book will fill this need, and help to heal some of the site’s conflict at the same time. Antopolsky told Breaking Israel News, “I hope that the book will help to change the vision of the Temple Mount from a point of conflict to a point of connection. We want to reach a point at which we can unite all people of goodwill, from all over the world, around service to the Only God.”The book, exhaustively researched from historical, archaeological, religious, and Biblical perspectives, leads visitors on a self-guided walking tour in a clearly laid-out path intended to preserve the sanctity of the Temple Mount site. It includes maps, timelines, and color photos, and cites scholastic as well as Biblical and Talmudic sources, drawing from historical accounts, archeological records and scriptural verses to reconstruct the site as it was in the past and explain its present condition.While the book identifies and describes the many features on the Temple Mount itself, including the Dome of the Rock, the various mosques on the site, and the ancient gates leading to the Mount, it also provides guide information about the Mount’s exterior walls, such as the Western Wall (Kotel) and the southern wall excavations.Bring the Temple Mount to Millions Around the World-“Arise and Ascend” also addresses the religious issues and requirements of ascending to the Mount, which have raised concerns among many observant Jews who believe that ascending to the Mount is forbidden. Since this question is one of contention among rabbinic leaders today, the Meeting Place Association and the Temple Mount Heritage Foundation offer readers the opportunity to contact religious authorities with any questions they might have.The book has been widely endorsed by diverse religious leaders around the world and includes introductions written by Israel’s Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, chief rabbi of the town of Efrat; American Pastor Keith Johnson, who founded the Biblical Foundations Academy International; and Muslim and Islamic scholar Adnan Oktar from Turkey.“The Holy Temple in Jerusalem – The City of God, the City of Peace (shalom), the City of Wholeness (shalem) – is ultimately to be the source from which teachings of love, morality and peace will extend to all the families of the earth,” wrote Rabbi Riskin in his introduction. “The Guide to the Temple Mount is a user-friendly handbook that carefully examines the present reality of the Temple Mount and through it provides glimpses of the past and a vision for the future.”Pastor Johnson wrote, “It is a rare opportunity to set our feet where the Creator of the universe has set His name. Such is the case when we arise and ascend to the Temple Mount. I pray that all who make their way to this sacred place will interact with the historical, archaeological, and biblical information in this book and personally experience the promise of the One who said, ‘I have consecrated this house which you have built by putting my Name there forever, and My eyes and my heart will be there perpetually’ (1 Kings 9:3).”Oktar added in a message of brotherhood and peace, writing, “The Temple Mount is a holy place that we wish to be the abode of love, peace and brotherhood. We pray that this site becomes a peaceful place where we can express our faith, allegiance, submission and love of God…By the will of God, within a short time Muslims, Jews and Christians will all walk down that road accompanied by the sound of the shofar, azan, and church bells, praying to and praising God under the guidance of Moshiach (Messiah).”Yehudah Glick presented Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with an advance copy of “Arise and Ascend”In addition to support from other religious leaders, “Arise and Ascend” has the approval of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as well. Glick presented the prime minister with an advance copy of the book at a meeting during which the two discussed the current situation on the Temple Mount.“He who does not study and understand his past misses out on any understanding of the present and the future,” Netanyahu said during the meeting. “This is the only way we can really understand the connection between the people of Israel [and] Jerusalem.”Glick hopes to raise enough funds to print 10,000 copies of the guidebook. Donations to the month-long online campaign will be matched dollar for dollar, and supporters who donate $50 or more will receive their own copies of “Arise and Ascend.”“It is a great responsibility to put out, for the first time in history, a guidebook for visitors to the holiest place in the universe,” Glick told Breaking Israel News. “We tried to do our best to present a comprehensive work, including maximum details but keeping the popular style so that it will be a ‘user friendly’ tool. I pray to God that it will bring more and more people from all over the world close to Him and His chosen City.”

US stocks close out their worst month in 3 years-After weeks of turmoil, US stock market closes out its worst month in more than 3 years-Associated Press By Ken Sweet, AP Business Writer-AUG 31,15-YAHOONEWS
NEW YORK (AP) -- The stock market is closing out its worst month in more than three years on a down note.Stocks fell broadly in Monday trading, with the exception of energy shares, which reversed an early slump after the price of crude oil surged.The Standard & Poor's 500 index ended August down 6.3 percent, its worst showing since May 2012. Investors have been worried about slowing growth in China and elsewhere and looming interest rate hikes in the U.S.The Dow Jones industrial average fell 114 points, or 0.7 percent, to 16,528.The S&P 500 fell 16 points, or 0.8 percent, to 1,972. The Nasdaq composite slid 52 points, or 1.1 percent, to 4,776.Oil surged 9 percent on news that U.S. production has been lower than estimated.
Oil up 8 pct on lower U.S. output, OPEC talk; biggest surge since 1990-Reuters-AUG 31,15-YAHOONEWS
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil futures soared on Monday for a third consecutive day, rising more than 8 percent, as a downward revision of U.S. crude production data and OPEC's readiness to talk with other producers helped extend the biggest price surge in 25 years.U.S. crude oil prices have skyrocketed more than $10 a barrel in three days, erasing the month's declines as a series of relatively small-scale supply disruptions and output risks prompted bearish traders to take profits on short positions, which had been at near record highs a week ago.On Monday, prices fell initially but reversed course mid-morning to accelerate into the close, extending gains to more than the 20 percent mark that often signals a bull market. Even so, few were prepared to call a definitive end to the slump."Sharp gains over the past three trading sessions were driven by a combination of short covering and chart-readers again looking to call a bottom falsely," Citi said in a report, saying that prices may yet test new lows before year's end.Brent (LCOc1) October futures rose $4.10, or 8.2 percent, to settle at $54.15 a barrel, with volumes relatively muted by a British public holiday.-Related Quotes-U.S. crude (CLc1) gained $3.98, or 8.8 percent, to settle at $49.20 a barrel, taking three-day gains to 27.5 percent, the most over three days since August 1990. In dollar terms, it is the biggest three-day gain since February 2011.While some analysts have been warning of a rebound in prices after a one-third slump since late June, most have been shocked by the whiplash of the past few days, and wondered whether it was an overreaction to relatively mild triggers.On Monday, some cited a commentary in the latest OPEC Bulletin publication suggesting the group may be increasingly willing to talk to other producers about curbing output as a factor, even though it was broadly in line with previous comments. There has been no indication this summer that core Gulf OPEC members are pushing for more talks."As the organisation has stressed on numerous occasions, it stands ready to talk to all other producers. But this has to be on a level playing field. OPEC will protect its own interests," according to the report.The rally was also fuelled by revised U.S. government figures showing that domestic production in the first half of the year was lower than initially reported. Even so, the data was in line with the overarching narrative of an industry in decline.The Energy Information Administration said its new survey-based output data showed the United States pumped a hair below 9.3 million barrels per day in June, down by 100,000 bpd from a revised May figure. June figure was also nearly 250,000 bpd below what the EIA had estimated a few weeks ago.(Additional reporting by Alex Lawler in London and Keith Wallis; Editing by Marguerita Choy and Steve Orlofsky)
U.S. Stocks Decline as S&P 500 Posts Worst Month Since May 2012-Oliver Renick-Updated on August 31, 2015 — 4:01 PM EDT
U.S. stocks declined, with the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index posting its worst month in more than three years, as investors harbored concerns about slowing global growth and the impact of a potential interest-rate increase by the Federal Reserve as soon as September.The S&P 500 lost 0.8 percent to 1,972.15 at 4 p.m. in New York, capping its biggest monthly slide since May 2012. The gauge in earlier trading fell as much as 1.2 percent before nearly erasing the retreat. The Dow Jones Industrial Average sank 0.7 percent to complete its worst monthly drop since May 2010.“There’s so much emotion right now, and in this environment you can come in any morning and have something out of Europe or Asia crossing us and that’s what causes us to move,” said Steve Bombardiere, an equity trader at Conifer Securities LLC in New York. “There were a lot of people who wanted to buy a correction, but after last week they paused and are thinking about how long it is going to last.”Equities trimmed their losses in the late morning after energy shares in the benchmark index reversed a 2.5 percent selloff to rally as much as 1.4 percent. The move followed a jump in oil prices after a government report reduced its crude production estimates and OPEC said it’s ready to talk to other global producers to achieve “fair prices.” Stocks have been whipsawed by gains and losses since last week as markets remain subject to sudden shifts in investor sentiment.The S&P 500 ended down 6.3 percent this month as China’s currency devaluation earlier this month spurred concern over global growth, erasing more than $5.3 trillion in equity market values worldwide. The benchmark’s 0.9 percent gain last week masked a volatile period in which the S&P 500 plunged the most since 2011 to enter a correction, only to rally more than 6 percent over two days for its best back-to-back gains since the beginning of the bull market in 2009.More than $2 trillion of share value was erased from U.S. markets between the end of July and the lowest levels of last week, a sum equal to roughly two years of S&P 500 earnings, data compiled by Bloomberg show.While August ranks in the middle among months based on share performance, it has produced some of the worst returns of the year since 2009. During the week ended August 12, 2011, the S&P 500 alternated between gains and losses of at least 4 percent for four days, something never seen in 88 years of data compiled by Bloomberg. In 2013, the S&P 500 fell 3.1 percent in August, one of only two months of negative returns in a year when the index surged 30 percent.-Fed Watch-Despite this month’s equities rout, remarks by Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer suggested the central bank hasn’t ruled out raising interest rates when the Federal Open Market Committee gathers on Sept. 16-17. Bets on a September liftoff climbed after Fischer said there is “good reason” to believe inflation will accelerate. Traders are now pricing in a 40 percent chance the central bank will act in September, up from a one-in-four chance last Wednesday.The Fed has said it will be appropriate to raise rates when it has seen some further improvement in the labor market and is “reasonably confident” inflation will move back to its 2 percent target over the medium term.“August was a rough month for everybody,” said Michael Block, chief equity strategist at Rhino Trading Partners LLC in New York. “There’s a little scare now where people are getting this feeling from Fischer saying we could see a hike as soon as September, that they don’t care about volatility and that we’re on our own. You could argue a rate hike is good for stocks, but it’s a big unknown and the market is undecided, that’s where the fear is.”
Islamic State Flips Gold Coins to Break Fed `Enslavement'-Zaid Sabah Caroline Alexander-Updated on August 30, 2015 — 2:34 AM EDT-BLOOMBERG
Forget the printing press. In readying for the rollout of Islamic State’s new money, goldsmiths and silver smelters have been toiling away.The jihadist group on Saturday touted “the return of the gold dinar” in an hour-long video issued by its media wing, al Hayat. Islamic State’s policy-making Shura Council last year tasked its Beit al Mal, or treasury, with minting the coins, which come in several denominations made of gold, silver and copper.The currency is meant to break the shackles of “the capitalist financial system of enslavement, underpinned by a piece of paper called the Federal Reserve dollar note,” the group said in the video. It didn’t explain where the coins were being minted, nor how they’ll be distributed or replace currencies circulating in the territory the group occupies in parts of Iraq and Syria.Islamic State first announced its intention to issue its own money in November, five months after it seized the northern Iraqi city of Mosul and its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi announced a caliphate. The move was seen by analysts as part of the group’s efforts to build the institutions of a functioning state.The jihadists have amassed a war chest of millions of dollars, partly through collecting taxes, and by seizing oil refineries. Bank and jewelry store robberies, extortion, smuggling and kidnapping for ransom are other important sources of revenue for the group, which metes out brutal punishment to anyone who opposes its rule, including beheadings and crucifixions.-Morale Booster-Baghdad-based economist Basim Jameel said the announcement is an attempt to boost the morale of Islamic State fighters, who have suffered battlefield setbacks in recent months, including the loss of Tikrit in March.Minting the coins is relatively easy, Jameel said, as goldsmiths in Mosul imported machines from Italy in recent years, each one able to produce about 5,000 coins a day. The metals probably come from banks the group seized, ransoms, the homes of Christians and other minorities who fled, he said.In the video, Islamic State refers to Caliph Abd al Malik ibn Marwan, who introduced the first Arabic-script coinage of the Islamic empire, free of figural representation, in around 696 AD.The group said its 21-carat 1-dinar coin weighs 4.25 grams, while the 21-carat five-dinar coin weighs double that. Three dominations of silver dirhams and two of copper coins were minted for smaller transactions, it said.-Exchange Rate?-Each coin bears an inscription that reads, “The Islamic State, a caliphate based on the doctrine of prophecy.” The 1-dinar coin also shows seven stalks of wheat, which the group said is meant to represent “the blessing of spending in the path of Allah.” The five-dinar coin bears the image of a map of the world.Oil, the group said in the video, will now only be sold for gold.The Pentagon said in February that illicit oil sales are no longer the main source of funding for the group. A U.S.-led bombing campaign that began last summer reduced the number of fields under its control and several neighbors, including Turkey and Kurdistan, have cracked down on smuggling routes.Residents interviewed by phone from Mosul and Ramadi, the western Iraqi city captured by Islamic State in May, said so far they hadn’t seen any coins, received details of how the currency swap would work, or been told what the prevailing exchange rate might be. They said families have been preparing for this moment for some time.One Mosul resident, who asked not to be identified, said his family and others will exchange a certain amount of old money into the new Islamic State currency to pay household expenses. Some will keep back a portion of the old currency to exchange into dollars in areas that remain under government control, he said.Because Islamic State is classified as a terrorist group, the coins can’t be traded legally.“They’ll only be used in these areas and people will only buy these coins for their daily needs and expenses,” said the economist Jameel.“Nobody outside their control will accept the currency and I don’t know how they’ll keep up with demand, as they are losing resources day after day,” he said. “At the end of the day, this is a media propaganda tool.”
China Premier Li Says No Basis for Yuan’s Continued Depreciation-Bloomberg News-August 29, 2015 — 9:03 PM EDT
Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said there was no basis for a continued depreciation of the yuan after the central bank allowed the currency to devalue 2.8 percent this month.The yuan can remain “basically” stable on a “reasonable and equilibrium level,” said Li, according to a statement posted on the State Council’s website Saturday. Li made the comments at a state council meeting on Friday.The assurances came after the central bank on Aug. 25 cut interest rates for the fifth time since November and lowered the amount of cash banks must set aside to stem the biggest stock-market rout since 1996. Deflation risks, over-capacity and a debt overhang remain a cloud over the Chinese economy, which is forecast for its slowest expansion since 1990.China will continue to carry out proactive fiscal policy and prudent monetary policy and will use “more precise” measures to cope with downward pressure on the economy, said Li in the statement. The government will prevent regional and systematic risks, according to the statement.Policy makers want to stabilize Chinese shares before a Sept. 3 military parade celebrating the 70th anniversary of the World War II victory over Japan, two people familiar with the matter, who asked not to be identified because the intervention wasn’t publicly announced, said Thursday.The Shanghai Composite Index rallied 4.8 percent to 3,232.35 at Friday’s close, following a more than 5 percent surge in the final hour of trading on Thursday. The gauge is still down 37 percent from its June high.The yuan in Shanghai climbed as much as 0.33 percent on Friday, its biggest intra-day gain since March 19, before closing 0.26 percent stronger at 6.3885 per dollar.
If the Options Market Is Right, China's Stock Rescue Is Doomed-Kana Nishizawa-August 30, 2015 — 12:00 PM EDT-bloomberg
Options traders have never been so pessimistic on China’s stock market, betting the government’s renewed effort to prop up share prices is doomed to fail.The cost of bearish contracts on the China 50 exchange-traded fund surged to the highest level versus bullish ones since they started trading in Shanghai six months ago. The so-called skew also climbed to a record for a similar ETF in the U.S., even as government buying drove China’s benchmark index to a 10 percent rally in the final two days of last week.While policy makers are trying to bolster the market before President Xi Jinping takes the stage in a World War II victory parade this week, bears argue that valuations are too high for the rally to last. Chinese investors have about 5 trillion yuan ($783 billion) of borrowed money riding on stocks, and many of them are looking for a chance to exit, according to Bank of America Corp.“More and more people are not convinced about A shares,” said Tony Chu, a Hong Kong-based money manager at RS Investment Management Co., which oversees about $20 billion. “Ultimately, the government needs to reduce intervention and let more de-leveraging happen.”Puts that pay out on a 10 percent drop in the China 50 ETF cost 7 points more on Friday than calls betting on a 10 percent gain, according to implied volatility data on one-month contracts. As recently as Aug. 24, the bullish contracts were more expensive. For the U.S.-listed Deutsche X-trackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares ETF, the skew reached a record 38 points on Aug. 27 and closed the week at 28 points.Chinese policy actions last week suggest authorities are intent on putting a floor under share prices. On Tuesday, the central bank announced its fifth interest-rate cut since November and reduced the amount of cash banks must set aside for reserves. State buying on Thursday propelled the Shanghai Composite to a rally of more than 5 percent in the final hour of trading, according to people familiar with the matter, an advance that extended into a 4.8 percent gain on Friday.-‘Unstable Situation’-China’s intervention is part of a broader effort to ensure nothing detracts from the Sept. 3 parade, an event the government will use to demonstrate its rising military and political might. Authorities have also closed thousands of factories to curb pollution and ordered some vehicles off the road.For BofA strategist David Cui, equity valuations and earnings growth aren’t appealing enough to support the market in the absence of government buying.Equities on mainland bourses traded at a median of 53 times reported earnings last week. That’s the most among the 10 largest markets and more than twice the 19 multiple for the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index. Analysts have cut their 2015 profit estimates for Shanghai Composite companies by 8.8 percent this year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.Cui is also worried about the impact of selling by leveraged investors. Margin loans tracked by Chinese exchanges have dropped by half from their June peak to about 1.1 trillion yuan, a figure that doesn’t take into account equity-backed debt extended by trust companies and other lenders.“That’s a very unstable situation,” said Cui, who estimates the Shanghai Composite needs to fall another 35 percent before shares become attractive. “The government will not support the market forever.”The $5 trillion tumble in share prices from mid-June through last Wednesday has damaged confidence so much that state buying isn’t enough to lure back investors, according to Kenny Tang, chief executive officer of Jun Yang Securities Co. in Hong Kong. It may take further cuts to borrowing costs and reserve requirements to convince funds to return, he said.The Deutsche X-trackers Harvest ETF ended last week down 6.2 percent at $32.70 in New York, extending its loss from a June record to more than 40 percent. The China 50 fund declined 4.7 percent.“The market sentiment is still quite volatile,” Tang said. “People are worried that after the rebound there will be some selling pressure.”
China Sells U.S. Treasuries to Support Yuan-Bloomberg News-Updated on August 27, 2015 — 6:11 AM EDT
China has cut its holdings of U.S. Treasuries this month to raise dollars needed to support the yuan in the wake of a shock devaluation two weeks ago, according to people familiar with the matter.Channels for such transactions include China selling directly, as well as through agents in Belgium and Switzerland, said one of the people, who declined to be identified as the information isn’t public. China has communicated with U.S. authorities about the sales, said another person. They didn’t reveal the size of the disposals.The People’s Bank of China has been offloading dollars and buying yuan to support the exchange rate, a policy that’s contributed to a $315 billion drop in its foreign-exchange reserves over the last 12 months. The $3.65 trillion stockpile will fall by some $40 billion a month in the remainder of 2015 because of the intervention, according to the median estimate in a Bloomberg survey.China selling Treasuries is “not a surprise, but possibly something which people haven’t fully priced in,” said Owen Callan, a Dublin-based fixed-income strategist at Cantor Fitzgerald LP. “It would change the outlook on Treasuries quite a bit if you started to price in a fairly large liquidation of their reserves over the next six months or so as they manage the yuan to whatever level they have in mind.”-Gross’s Tweet-The PBOC and the U.S. Embassy in Beijing didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment. Bill Gross, who manages the $1.47 billion Janus Global Unconstrained Bond Fund, tweeted Wednesday “China selling long Treasuries ????”.Two-year Treasuries erased an earlier advance, with their yield little changed at 0.67 percent as of 11 a.m. in London. It fell as much as two basis points. The 10-year yield declined three basis points to 2.15 percent, near to its average for the past month.Chinese sales of U.S. government debt may have kept yields from falling this month as a selloff in global stocks prompted investors to favor the safest assets.“By selling Treasuries to defend the renminbi, they’re preventing Treasury yields from going lower despite the fact that we’ve seen a sharp drop in the stock market,” David Woo, head of global rates and currencies research at Bank of America Corp., said on Bloomberg Television on Wednesday. “China has a direct impact on global markets through U.S. rates.”China Holdings-The latest available Treasury data and estimates by strategists suggest that China controls $1.48 trillion of U.S. government debt, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That includes about $200 billion held through Belgium, which Nomura Holdings Inc. says is home to Chinese custodial accounts.The PBOC has sold at least $106 billion of reserve assets in the last two weeks, including Treasuries, according to an estimate from Societe Generale SA. The figure was based on the bank’s calculation of how much liquidity will be added to China’s financial system through Tuesday’s reduction of interest rates and lenders’ reserve-requirement ratios. The assumption is that the central bank aims to replenish the funds it drained when it bought yuan to stabilize the currency.The yuan rose 0.08 percent to 6.4053 per dollar on Thursday in Shanghai, trimming this month’s decline to 3.1 percent. Daily fluctuations have averaged less than 0.1 percent in the past two weeks as the PBOC intervened to bring stability following the Aug. 11 devaluation. The nation’s Treasury holdings will stop falling once the intervention stops and the currency is freely floating, said Steve Wang, chief China economist at Reorient Financial Markets Ltd. in Hong Kong.“Strategically, it probably has been China’s intention to find the right time to lighten up its excessive accumulation of U.S. Treasuries,” he said.
It's Official: China Confirms It Has Begun Liquidating Treasuries, Warns Washington-Submitted by Tyler Durden on 08/27/2015 23:27 -0400-Bank of America Bank of America Belgium Bill Dudley Bill Gross China fixed Housing Market Monetary Policy Nomura Quantitative Easing Renminbi Switzerland Yuan -zero hedge
On Tuesday evening, we asked what would happen if emerging markets joined China in dumping US Treasurys. For months we’ve documented the PBoC’s liquidation of its vast stack of US paper. Back in July for instance, we noted that China had dumped a record $143 billion in US Treasurys in three months via Belgium, leaving Goldman speechless for once.We followed all of this up this week by noting that thanks to the new FX regime (which, in theory anyway, should have required less intervention), China has likely sold somewhere on the order of $100 billion in US Treasurys in the past two weeks alone in open FX ops to steady the yuan. Put simply, as part of China's devaluation and subsequent attempts to contain said devaluation, China has been purging an epic amount of Treasurys.But even as the cat was out of the bag for Zero Hedge readers and even as, to mix colorful escape metaphors, the genie has been out of the bottle since mid-August for China which, thanks to a steadfast refusal to just float the yuan and be done with it, will have to continue selling USTs by the hundreds of billions, the world at large was slow to wake up to what China’s FX interventions actually implied until Wednesday when two things happened: i) Bloomberg, citing fixed income desks in New York, noted "substantial selling pressure" in long-term USTs emanating from somebody in the "Far East", and ii) Bill Gross asked, in a tweet, if China was selling Treasurys.Sure enough, on Thursday we got confirmation of what we’ve been detailing exhaustively for months. Here’s Bloomberg: China has cut its holdings of U.S. Treasuries this month to raise dollars needed to support the yuan in the wake of a shock devaluation two weeks ago, according to people familiar with the matter. Channels for such transactions include China selling directly, as well as through agents in Belgium and Switzerland, said one of the people, who declined to be identified as the information isn’t public.

They didn’t reveal the size of the disposals.The latest available Treasury data and estimates by strategists suggest that China controls $1.48 trillion of U.S. government debt, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That includes about $200 billion held through Belgium, which Nomura Holdings Inc. says is home to Chinese custodial accounts.The PBOC has sold at least $106 billion of reserve assets in the last two weeks, including Treasuries, according to an estimate from Societe Generale SA. The figure was based on the bank’s calculation of how much liquidity will be added to China’s financial system through Tuesday’s reduction of interest rates and lenders’ reserve-requirement ratios. The assumption is that the central bank aims to replenish the funds it drained when it bought yuan to stabilize the currency.Now that what has been glaringly obvious for at least six months has been given the official mainstream stamp of fact-based approval, the all-clear has been given for rampant speculation on what exactly this means for US monetary policy. Here’s Bloomberg again:China selling Treasuries is “not a surprise, but possibly something which people haven’t fully priced in,” said Owen Callan, a Dublin-based fixed-income strategist at Cantor Fitzgerald LP. “It would change the outlook on Treasuries quite a bit if you started to price in a fairly large liquidation of their reserves over the next six months or so as they manage the yuan to whatever level they have in mind.”“By selling Treasuries to defend the renminbi, they’re preventing Treasury yields from going lower despite the fact that we’ve seen a sharp drop in the stock market,” David Woo, head of global rates and currencies research at Bank of America Corp., said on Bloomberg Television on Wednesday. “China has a direct impact on global markets through U.S. rates.”As we discussed on Wednesday evening, we do, thanks to a review of the extant academic literature undertaken by Citi, have an idea of what foreign FX reserve liquidation means for USTs. "Suppose EM and developing countries, which hold $5491 bn in reserves, reduce holdings by 10% over one year - this amounts to 3.07% of US GDP and means 10yr Treasury yields rates rise by a mammoth 108bp ," Citi said, in a note dated earlier this week.In other words, for every $500 billion in liquidated Chinese FX reserves, there's an attendant 108bps worth of upward pressure on the 10Y. Bear in mind here that thanks to the threat of a looming Fed rate hike and a litany of other factors including plunging commodity prices and idiosyncratic political risks, EM currencies are in free fall which means that it's not just China that's in the process of liquidating USD assets. The clear takeaway is that there's a substantial amount of upward pressure building for UST yields and that is a decisively undesirable situation for the Fed to find itself in going into September. On Wednesday we summed the situation up as follows: "one of the catalysts for the EM outflows is the looming Fed hike which, when taken together with the above, means that if the FOMC raises rates, they will almost surely accelerate the pressure on EM, triggering further FX reserve drawdowns (i.e. UST dumping), resulting in substantial upward pressure on yields and prompting an immediate policy reversal and perhaps even QE4."Well now that China's UST liquidation frenzy has reached a pace where it could no longer be swept under the rug and/or played down as inconsequential, and now that Bill Dudley has officially opened the door for "additional quantitative easing", it would appear that the only way to prevent China and EM UST liquidation from, as Citi puts it, "choking off the US housing market," and exerting a kind of forced tightening via the UST transmission channel, will be for the FOMC to usher in QE4.
What China's Treasury Liquidation Means: $1 Trillion QE In Reverse-Submitted by Tyler Durden on 08/28/2015 03:45 -0400-zero hedge
Earlier today, Bloomberg - citing the ubiquitous "people familiar with the matter" - confirmed what we’ve been pounding the table on for months; namely that China is liquidating its UST holdings.As we outlined in July, from the first of the year through June, China looked to have sold somewhere around $107 billion worth of US paper. While that might have seemed like a breakneck pace back then, it was nothing compared to what would transpire in the last two weeks of August. Following the devaluation of the yuan, the PBoC found itself in the awkward position of having to intervene openly in the FX market, despite the fact that the new currency regime was supposed to represent a shift towards a more market-determined exchange rate. That intervention has come at a steep cost - around $106 billion according to Soc Gen. In other words, stabilizing the yuan in the wake of the devaluation has resulted in the sale of more than $100 billion in USTs from China’s FX reserves. That dramatic drawdown has an equal and opposite effect on liquidity. That is, it serves to tighten money markets, thus working at cross purposes with policy rate cuts. The result: each FX intervention (i.e. each round of UST liquidation) must be offset with either an RRR cut, or with emergency liquidity injections via hundreds of billions in reverse repos and short- and medium-term lending ops.It appears that all of the above is now better understood than it was a month ago, but what’s still not well understand is the impact this will have on the US economy and, by extension, on US monetary policy, and furthermore, there seems to be some confusion as to just how dramatic the Treasury liquidation might end up being.Recall that China’s move to devalue the yuan and this week’s subsequent benchmark lending rate cut have served to blow up one of the world’s most popular carry trades. As one currency trader told Bloomberg on Tuesday, "it’s a terrible time to be long carry, increased volatility -- which I think we’ll stay with -- will continue to be terrible for carry. The period is over for carry trades."Here's a look at how a rules-based carry strategy designed to capture yield differences would have fared in the universe of G10 CCYs (note the blow ups around the SNB's franc shocker and the yuan deval):In short, the music stopped on August 11 and to the extent that anyone was still dancing going into this week, the PBoC’s decision to cut the lending rate along with RRR buried the trade once and for all.Estimating the size of that trade should be a good indicator for just how expensive it will be - i.e. how much in Treasurys China will have to liquidate - to keep the yuan stable. The question, as BofAML puts it, is this: "can China afford the unwinding of carry trades?"The first step is estimating the total size of the trade. Although estimates vary, BofAML puts the figure at between $1 trillion and $1.1 trillion.As analyzed above, the size of RMB carry could be quite high and thus exert downward pressure on RMB. But the PBoC should have scope to defend its currency if necessary. The PBoC’s toolbox includes its $3.65tn FX reserves (at end-July), as well as measurements to tighten FX controls on individuals, corporate and banks, if necessary, including imposing stricter requirements on NOP, among others.That said, we doubt if the PBoC will persistently intervene as rapid decline of FX reserves undermines market confidence anyway and imposes challenges to the PBoC. Alternatively, the PBoC could impose stricter FX controls but that would be considered as a backward move of capital account opening up. Nevertheless, we believe the PBoC intervention will still have spillover effects on the market.In other words, if this entire $1 trillion trade gets unwound, China will need to offset the pressure by either i) draining its reserves, or ii) taking a big step backwards on capital account liberalization. The latter option would be bad news for Beijing’s efforts to liberalize markets and land the yuan in the SDR basket. Of course, as noted yesterday and as tipped by SocGen earlier this week, the liquidation of $1 trillion in FX reserves would put enormous pressure on domestic liquidity, tightening money markets meaningfully, and forcing the PBoC to cut RRR 10 times (assuming 50 bps intervals). As BofA notes, China can’t "afford another liquidity squeeze like June 2013 given very poor sentiment nowadays and China’s economic downturn."Putting the pieces together here - and here is the critically important takeaway - we know that the size of the RMB carry trade could be as high as $1.1 trillion. If that entire trade is unwound, it would require China to liquidate a commensurate amount of its reserves in order to keep control of the yuan - or else resort to FX controls. Here's the point: if China were to liquidate $1 trillion in reserves (i.e. USTs), it would effectively offset 60% of QE3.Furthermore, based on Citi's review of the academic literature which shows that for every $500 billion in EM reserves liquidated, the yield on the US 10Y rises 108bps, if the PBoC were to use its reserves to offset a hypothetical unwind of the entire RMB carry trade, it would put around 200 bps of upward pressure on 10Y yields.So in effect, China's UST dumping is QE in reverse - and on a massive scale. Facing this kind of pressure the FOMC will at the very least need to exercise an exorbitant amount of caution before tightening policy and at the most, embark on another round of asset purchases lest China's devaluation and attendant FX interventions should be allowed to decimate whatever part of the US "recovery" is actually real.

SIX huge asteroids ARE coming our way as doommongers insist world will end in FOUR weeks-CONSPIRACY theorists and doom prophets claim an asteroid will wipe out life on the planet in a matter of weeks - anytime between September 21 and 28 in fact. By Jon Austin-PUBLISHED: 05:01, Fri, Aug 28, 2015 | UPDATED: 08:37, Fri, Aug 28, 2015-express
Wild predictions being made online claim a space rock up to 2.5miles wide will strike Puerto Rico.Dates range from September 21 to the end, but most are homing in on between September 23 or 24 due to a range of Bible codes, so-called prophecies, and alleged other predictions.However, the Blood Moon Prophecy, says the end is nigh on September 28 as that coincides with the last of four 'blood moons' (total eclipses followed with six full moons in between) over the past 18 months.The claim appears to have its origins in a self-proclaimed prophet Rev Efraid Rodriguez, who says he wrote to Nasa warning of the strike after receiving a message from God.He claims he saw a vision of it "entering the airspace of the town of Arecibo in Puerto Rico, striking the sea between the island of Mona and Mayagüez and triggering a magnitude 12 earthquake.Many "end of world" prophecies have clearly been made before and passed without incident.Still, the latest online doomsday prophecies have been read by so many people that NASA was forced to issue a statement, that it reiterated this week, saying the chances of an impact around that time or within the next few hundred years were next to zero.Paul Chodas, of Nasa's Near-Earth Object office at its Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, said: "There is no existing evidence that an asteroid or any other celestial object is on a trajectory that will impact Earth."In fact, not a single one of the known objects has any credible chance of hitting our planet over the next century."Nasa has also published a statement on its website reassuring the global public the scare stories are not true.Mr Chodas added: "There is no scientific basis, not one shred of evidence, that an asteroid or any other celestial object will impact Earth on those dates."If there were any object large enough to do that type of destruction in September, we would have seen something of it by now."Nasa DOES tracks about 13,000 "near-Earth asteroids" but accepts this figure is only about 2% of those out there and it has no idea of the whereabouts to the remaining 98% of them.Of the 13,000 around 1,607 are classified as "potentially hazardous" meaning they are big enough and come within a few million miles of Earth - a distance considered a brush past in cosmic terms.So are any asteroids due to pass close to us on any of these dates and what are the chances of any of them posing any danger? An Express.co.uk investigation can exclusively reveal there are SIX so-called "close approaches" of "near Earth" asteroids due to pass within a cosmic fraction of the planet within the doommongers' seven-day predicted timescale.Scientists predict it would take an impact from an asteroid of 1km (0.6miles) in length and upwards to actually kill off most life on the planet.But something as small as 50 metres could destroy all of London out to the M25 boundary, and a space rock of 100metres long or more could devastate a continent, causing mass destruction and tsunamis.How big are these six? Of the six due to pass, those on September 23, 27 and 28, are estimated as being up to 57, 39, and 31-metres-long respectively.In June 1908 the Tunguska asteroid exploded in the atmosphere above Siberia and is the most recent major one in world history.It saw a 50-metre lump of extraterrestrial rock rain down, flattening around 80million trees, sending a shock wave across Russia measuring five on the Richter scale.We found the biggest rocks set to pass are on September 22 and 24.On the 22 two asteroids are expected to whistle past - one of up to 190 metres long - the length of eight train carriages - and another cruise ship-sized space rock of about 280 metres long.Two days later another whopping 270metre asteroid will pass us.How far away are they? NASA monitors massive asteroids that pass by several million miles from Earth and smaller ones at up to about 7m miles.It seems far, but put into context the moon is 238,800 miles from us and our closes planet is Venus at 25m miles away, so the "near Earth asteroids" pass closer to the moon than other planets, and their orbits vary.The furthest pass of the largest three is on September 22, when the 280-metre asteroid is expected to whistle past at a relatively safe 14.7m miles from us, while the 270metre one on September 24, is a much closer 5.1m miles.In fact, this space rock is the closest of all six objects due to pass over these days.How certain is Nasa about its path? NASA gives each asteroid a "condition code" from zero to nine of how certain it is about the predicted orbital path it gives.A zero means there is "good certainty" about it, while nine means it is highly uncertain, with numbers in between on a sliding scale.Only one of the six scored a zero - fortunately the biggest 280 metres one passing on September 22.All the others scored from five or higher, meaning Nasa has a mid-way certainty on their orbital path or quite high uncertainty in two cases which scored six and seven respectively.The most uncertain pass is the 57-metre rock on September 23, which has a condition code of seven - but hopefully its estimated 18.5m mile flyby and relative small size gives much room for manoeuvre.More concerning is the cruise-ship-sized rock, the closest, and second largest object, due for September 24, which scored six.NASA has two categories within the near-Earth objects, including those which potentially pose a risk.Rocks are considered a "potentially hazardous asteroid" (PHA) if they are within 4.6m miles of Earth and at least 100 metres across.NASA says a rock of such size hitting us is "big enough to cause regional devastation to human settlements unprecedented in human history in the case of a land impact, or a major tsunami in the case of an ocean impact."They added: "Such impact events occur on average around once per 10,000 years."So the "cruise ship" - known as asteroid 2012 TT5 - is almost three times the size of the smallest PHA, but its 5.1million miles estimated pass puts it a cosmic cats whisper of 500,000 miles over the PAH zone.With the level of uncertainty surrounding its orbit, it could theoretically come within the PAH boundary. There is also the NASA admission that it only knows the whereabouts of two per cent of the estimated 800,000 plus asteroids circling close to us, so hypothetically, an object we have no knowledge of could be on course right now.In late 2013, Russia was unfortunate again, when a 20-metre long meteor came from nowhere and unexpectedly exploded above Chelyabinsk in Russia, injuring 1,500 people and damaging around 7,000 buildings.So should we be worried and does that mean modern-day Nostradamuses are wrong? Nasa insists the doommongers are wrong, although a rock of 2012 TT5's size will certainly be tracked to ensure it does not deviate from the projected orbit.Nasa, and many scientists, still say we need not be worried.It said in a statement: "NASA knows of no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth, so the probability of a major collision is quite small."In fact, as best as we can tell, no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years."NASA has also made asteroid detection a top priority, and are developing strategies for identifying asteroids that could pose a risk to our planet."http://www.express.co.uk/news/science/592987/End-of-the-world-asteroid-Blood-Moon-September-apocalypse-armageddon-comet-meteor

08/28/2015 -Vatican does not object to Palestinian flag being raised at the UN-The palestinian flag-The Holy See has issued a communiqué acknowledging that it is not entitled to oppose the tabling of a draft resolution by a Member State but pointing out “the long established praxis and tradition whereby only flags of member States are displayed at the UN headquarters and offices”-andrea tornielli-VATICAN INSIDER
vatican city-The Holy See “does not object to the tabling of a draft resolution concerning the raising of the flags of Observer States at the UN headquarters and offices”. At the same time, however, it recalls that according to tradition, only the flags of member states are usually displayed at the UN headquarters and offices. The Holy See issued a communiqué stating this earlier this evening. In recent days the Holy See had clarified that it did not intend to co-sponsor a draft resolution of the State of Palestine requesting that the flags of the two non-member observer states (Palestine and the Vatican) fly alongside those of the 193 member nations.“In accordance with the rules governing the General Assembly,” today’s press release reads, “no Member or Observer State is entitled to oppose the tabling of a draft resolution by a Member State. In light of this, the Holy See does not object to the tabling of a draft resolution concerning the raising of the flags of Observer States at the UN headquarters and offices.”“The Holy See, however, notes the long established praxis and tradition of the UN, since 1945, whereby only flags of member States are displayed at the UN headquarters and offices, and will accept whatever decision that the UN may wish to take in this regard in the future.”
08/26/2015-Vatican will not partake in Palestinian flag initiative at UN-Palestinian flags-Ramallah intended to seize the opportunity of the Pope’s presence at the UN General Assembly in September to ask for the flags of the two non-member observer states to fly alongside those of the 193 member states-Giorgio Bernardelli-VATICAN INSIDER
Rome-The Vatican does not want to be involved in the battle of the flags at the UN. In a note circulated to the New York headquarters in New York, the Vatican asked the Palestinian mission to the UN to remove any reference to the 'Holy See' from a draft resolution Ramallah intends to present to the General Assembly. The text requests that the flags of the two states recognised as permanent observer members (the Vatican and Palestine), may fly alongside those of the 193 member nations, in front of the entrance to the UN headquarters.“The Holy See does not intend to co-sponsor a draft resolution that the State of Palestine may eventually present on the matter," the note, reprinted by Reuters, said. “The Holy See asks the Permanent Observer Mission of the State of Palestine to the United Nations kindly to remove in its draft resolution any reference to the 'Holy See' and any generic reference 'on behalf of the Observer States'," it added. It was not by chance that Ramallah chose to present its request now: the 70th United Nations General Assembly is due to open on 15 September and Pope Francis is expected to give a speech at the UN headquarters in New York on 25 September. Palestine probably gambled on the fact that refusing a request involving the Holy See shortly before the Pope is due to visit, would have caused embarrassment. But the move did not go down well with the Holy See which has asked to be removed from the draft resolution, thus dealing a significant blow to the initiative. In the note sent by the Vatican Observer mission to the UN, it explained that although it did not object to the Palestinians proposing a resolution to fly their own flag, the Holy See had no plans to join the initiative. After all, the question of Palestine’s status remains a thorny issue: in November 2012, the General Assembly voted to upgrade Palestine’s status to non-member Observer State status. However, the Security Council has always blocked Palestine’s application for admission as a member state (the last time this occurred was last December with a majority vote).It is interesting to note that the Vatican’s “no” comes just weeks after the controversial Basic Agreement the Holy Signed with the State of Palestine. The Agreement was openly criticised by Israel as a rash move that acts as an obstacle to peace in the Middle East. Israeli media have placed a great deal of emphasis on the distance taken by the Holy See, which has been interpreted as a slam on the breaks in its relations with Ramallah. In reality, both gestures have the same goal. As the Holy See has amply explained, the signing of the Basic Agreement was not to be seen as an intention on its part to give Israel the cold shoulder. Rather, it was to be interpreted as a formal recognition of a series of rights granted to Christian communities within Palestinian society. This was preceded by a preamble in which the Holy See stressed that the Agreement was accompanied by a call for a peaceful solution of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. The Vatican’s decision to prevent an event such as the Pope’s visit to the UN from being exploited is a move that is consistent with the position it holds. This does not mean that it will cease to highlight the urgent need for a just solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The way the Vatican sees it, in the Holy Land, it is actions and acts of peace that count, not words and flag flying. And that goes for both sides.
Vatican differs with Palestinians on flags at UN headquarters-AFP-AUG 29,15-YAHOONEWS
Vatican City (AFP) - The Vatican has differed with a Palestinian request for the two observer states to the United Nations to be allowed to raise their flags at its headquarters, saying the move goes against a longheld tradition at the world body.In a statement released late Friday, the Vatican appeared to be seeking a way to cut short the Palestinian effort to associate the Roman Catholic Church with an initiative which risks further angering Israel.The Jewish state is already disturbed that the Vatican in June recognised a "Palestinian state" in signing its first bilateral accord with the Palestinian Authority.The latest initiative would have the United Nations adopt a resolution so the Palestinian and Vatican flags would be raised alongside those of UN member states-"The Holy See does not object to the tabling of a draft resolution concerning the raising of flags of Observer States at the UN headquarters and offices," the Vatican statement said.But at the same time it noted that since its founding in 1945, it has been a tradition that "only flags of member States are displayed at the UN headquarters and offices," it added.The Vatican also said it would abide by any decision the UN members might take on this matter in the future.A diplomatic note had been circulating for several days in New York in which the Vatican distanced itself from the Palestinian demand, according to informed sources.The Vatican's statement was seen by observers as a means of clarifying its position while trying not to strain relations with either the Palestinians or the Israelis.Pope Francis is scheduled next month to address the UN General Assembly during his trip to Cuba and the United States.
Vatican says won't co-sponsor Palestinian flag initiative at U.N.-Reuters By Louis Charbonneau-August 25, 2015 9:05 PM
UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The Vatican on Tuesday asked the Palestinian U.N. mission to remove all references to it from a draft resolution the Palestinians have prepared for the General Assembly calling for the flags of Palestine and the Holy See to fly at the U.N.The Palestinian draft resolution, which was seen by Reuters, says that the flags of non-member observer states "shall be raised at the United Nations Headquarters and Offices following the flags of the member states of the United Nations."The draft resolution specifically refers to both the Vatican and the State of Palestine, both of which are non-member observer states at the United Nations.The initiative comes one month before the scheduled appearance of Pope Francis for a major speech before a high-level gathering of the 193-nation U.N. General Assembly on Sept. 25.Currently, only member states' flags fly at U.N. headquarters. U.N. diplomats say the United States and Israel, which do not recognize Palestinian statehood, would likely be irked by any move to fly the Palestinian flag at U.N. headquarters in New York City.The flag-flying resolution, which diplomats said the Palestinians were expected to circulate to the full assembly as early as on Wednesday, had apparently been prepared without the explicit consent of the Vatican's mission to the United Nations.In a note circulated to some U.N. members and seen by Reuters, the Vatican made clear that while it did not object to the Palestinians proposing a resolution to fly their own flag, the Holy See had no plans to join the initiative - even though the Vatican formally recognized the State of Palestinian earlier this year."The Holy See does not intend to co-sponsor a draft resolution that the State of Palestine may eventually present on the matter," the note said."The Holy See asks the Permanent Observer Mission of the State of Palestine to the United Nations kindly to remove in its draft resolution any reference to the 'Holy See' and any generic reference 'on behalf of the Observer States'," it added.A diplomat at the Palestinian mission did not respond immediately to a request for comment.In 2012 the General Assembly overwhelmingly approved the de facto recognition of the sovereign state of Palestine. That de facto recognition came after a failed bid by the Palestinians to secure full membership in the United Nations.(Reporting by Louis Charbonneau; Editing by Leslie Adler)

Khamenei Aide: Fighting the 'Zionist Regime' is Our Policy-Aide to Iran's Supreme Leader denies British Foreign Secretary's comments that Iran has changed its attitude towards Israel.By Elad Benari-First Publish: 8/30/2015, 6:05 AM-israelnationalnews
Iran is continuing its verbal attacks on Israel, with the latest remarks coming on Saturday by a close aide to the Islamic Republic’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.The aide, Seyed Mahmoud Nabavi, was replying to British Foreign Secretary Phillip Hammond's recent remarks that Tehran has changed its policy on Israel, and underlined that fighting the “Zionist regime” is Iran’s everlasting policy."Fight against the illegal Zionist regime is one of the immutable policies of Iran which has always been maintained," Nabavi told the semi-official Fars news agency.He blasted Hammond's comments and said, "Such words are incorrect since one of the driving goals of the Islamic Revolution has been campaign against the arrogant powers.""We haven’t recognized the Zionist regime since the beginning of the Islamic Revolution and such a policy will continue," Nabavi stressed.Hammond comments last Sunday came as he reopened the British embassy, four years after it was ransacked by an Iranian mob, forcing its closure.Nabavi’s dismissal of the comments marks the third time that an Iranian official has commented on Hammond’s remarks since they were made.Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Wednesday stressed that the “Zionist regime” had no place in diplomatic talks between Tehran and London."We have rejected such media hype (before) and during Mr. Hammond's trip to Iran, we just discussed potentials of bilateral relations, fighting extremism and terrorism, etc.," said Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham."There were no talks on the Zionist regime and the report that Iran has changed its position is denied," she stressed.A day earlier, the Iranian Parliament Speaker's Adviser for International Affairs Hossein Sheikholeslam blasted Hammond for what Fars described as his “interfering” remarks, and said Tehran's positions against Israel have not changed at all."Our positions against the usurper Zionist regime have not changed at all; Israel should be annihilated and this is our ultimate slogan," Sheikholeslam told reporters in Tehran.Despite the nuclear deal that was signed between Iran and the West, Khamenei has continued to bash Israel and the United States.Recently, Khamenei went so far as to publish a new book on the topic of outwitting the United States and destroying Israel.

Iran: Russia to deliver its S-300 missile system by year’s end-Tehran official says deal with Moscow selling Islamic Republic surface-to-air missile systems has been finalized-By Tamar Pileggi August 30, 2015, 7:06 pm 11-the times of Israel
Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan said Sunday that Russia has agreed to begin delivering its advanced air defense system to Iran “by the end of the year.”The Lebanese Al Mayadeen news outlet quoted Dehghan as confirming the delivery date of the Russian-made S-300 surface-to-air missile system.The report added that Tehran officials were in talks with Moscow regarding the acquisition of 30 Russian-made Sukhoi fighter jets.Reports of the finalized deal come several months after Russia repealed its embargo on Iran, when both countries began to expand military ties the wake of a historic nuclear deal reached between Iran and six world powers last month.The talks were held last week on the sidelines of the Moscow MAKS 2015 air show, and were attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iranian Vice President for Science and Technology Affairs Sorena Sattari, Iranian media reported.Israel has long sought to block the sale to Iran of the S-300 system, which analysts say could impede a potential Israeli strike on Tehran’s nuclear facilities. Other officials have expressed concern that the systems could reach Syria and Hezbollah, diluting Israel’s regional air supremacy.The S-300 is capable of tracking multiple planes at once and some versions have an interception range of 200 kilometers, and is considered to be one of the most sophisticated anti-aircraft weapons in the world.Russia initially agreed to sell the advanced system to Iran in 2007 but then balked, saying at the time it was complying with a United Nations arms embargo.Shortly after the Lausanne outline for the nuclear deal between P5+1 powers and Iran was signed in April, Russia announced it was lifting the ban on selling the advanced missile defense system to Iran, despite US and Israeli objections.Moscow believes the framework agreement permits the delivery of the missiles without waiting for removal of sanctions intended to deter Tehran from developing its nuclear program.Jonathan Beck and Adiv Sterman contributed to this report.
Super Giant' Gas Field Found in Egyptian Waters, Firm Says-An Italian exploration firm searching for gas and oil off Egypt's shores announced Sunday that it had found a huge natural gas deposit.By Yaakov Levi-First Publish: 8/30/2015, 5:52 PM-israelnationalnews
An Italian exploration firm searching for gas and oil off Egypt's shores announced Sunday that it had found a huge natural gas deposit – the “biggest ever” find for the Mediterranean ever, according to officials for Eni SpA.According to the company, the find could provide as much as 30 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of gas in an area of 100 square kilometers (38.6 square miles). Called Zohr, the field, the company said in a statement, is “is the largest gas discovery ever made in Egypt and in the Mediterranean Sea and could become one of the world's largest natural gas finds.”The Leviathan field, until now the largest field in the Mediterranean, has 22 tcf of proven reserves. The other large Israeli gas field, Tamar, has 10 tcf, but both fields may be larger than that, geologists said. Eni did not say how much of the Egyptian find has been proven yet.The company made the announcement a day after Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi met in Cairo with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi. The government has not yet commented on the Eni announcement. Egypt had been in on-again, off-again talks to buy gas from Israel.
Steinitz: Egypt gas find is wake-up call for Israel-Energy minister slams Israel’s procrastination over its own gas deal after discovery of Mediterranean’s largest offshore reserve-By Times of Israel staff August 30, 2015, 9:36 pm 1
The large natural gas field found offshore from Egypt should be a wake-up call for Israel to finalize an agreement on its own sizable reserves in the Mediterranean Sea, Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz said Sunday.“The discovery of the massive gas field in Egypt is a painful reminder that while Israel sleepwalks and dallies with the final approval for the gas road map, and delays further prospecting, the world is changing in front of us, including ramifications for [Israeli] export options,” Steinitz said, referring to the ongoing regulatory dispute that has stalled the signing of the deal.“We must pass the gas road map and forward the Israeli gas industry,” he said of a cabinet-backed deal to develop Israel’s Tamar and Leviathan reserves, Army Radio reported.The American Noble Energy and the locally based Delek Group have faced opposition to their proposed deal with the government to develop a number of natural gas reserves discovered offshore Israel in recent years.The deal has been controversial in Israel, with critics, including outgoing antitrust commissioner David Gilo, fearing the deal’s regulations would overly favor the companies involved.The high-stakes deal was thrown into the spotlight when Gilo said last year that the Noble-Delek partnership resembled a monopoly, and called for opening Israel’s natural gas market to increased competition.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, however, has maintained that the deal would pump billions of shekels into the economy. He pushed the disputed deal between the government and the US-Israeli energy consortium through the cabinet earlier this month.Italian energy group Eni announced earlier Sundya that it has discovered a “super-giant” natural gas field off Egypt, describing it as the “largest ever” found in the Mediterranean Sea.Eni said the discovery — made in its Zohr prospect “in the deep waters of Egypt” — could hold a potential 30 trillion cubic feet of gas over an area of 100 square kilometers (38.6 square miles).Israel’s Leviathan gas field, which is estimated at 16 trillion cubic feet, has so far been thought to be the largest in the Mediterranean.The Noble-Delek group has been producing gas from the Tamar field off the Israeli coast since 2013, and has also teamed up to develop Leviathan by 2019.Tamar’s stakeholders signed a contract earlier this year with a private Egyptian concern to sell as much as five billion cubic meters of gas to Egyptian companies over the next three years. This gas will be flowing through an old pipeline that once transported gas in the opposite direction, from Egypt to Israel.In March, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Egypt government may import natural gas from Israel if its price were low enough and if one of the drilling companies dropped a legal action against the Egyptian government.Jordan has also signed a $15-billion, 15-year letter of intent to import Israeli natural gas.
Op-Ed: Now Exposed - Iran is Already Waging War Against Israel-Wake up, Congressmen, and read this.Published: Sunday, August 30, 2015 5:41 AM-Benyamin Korn-israelnationalnews
On August 16, the Israeli Army revealed that Iran has been directing terrorist attacks from Syria against Israelis in the Golan Heights region. Nobody paid attention. Four days later, Iranian-sponsored rockets from Syria struck Israel's Upper Galilee. Is anybody listening now? For weeks, supporters of Israel have been warning that the emerging Iran agreement would give Tehran funds that it could use to wage war against Israel through its proxies.But now it turns out that Iran is already waging that war. The question is, who is paying attention?.On August 16, a "senior Israeli Army Northern Command officer" revealed to journalists that for the past twenty months, Iran has "directed" terrorist attacks against Israelis on the Golan Heights."All of the attacks in the Golan Heights sector since December 2013 have been carried out with Iranian direction," the officer told reporters, according to the Israeli daily Israel HaYom.All of the attacks. Not one or two. All of them. "Directed" from Tehran.The officer said that "several hundred Hezbollah operatives are currently active on the Syrian side of the border in the Golan Heights." He said "Iran sends advisers [to the area] and provides money, weapons and training [to terrorists operating there]."Among the Iranian-directed terrorist cells operating in the Golan, he said, is a cell led by one Samir Kuntar. Does that name ring a bell? A Lebanese native, Kuntar is a veteran of the Palestine Liberation Front. The PLF, a member-organization of the PLO, was headed by Abu Abbas. Their most infamous attacks were the Achille Lauro hijacking in 1985, and an attempted attack on the Tel Aviv beachfront that resulted in the Bush administration withdrawing its recognition of the PLO. Among the Iranian-directed terrorist cells operating in the Golan, he said, is a cell led by one Samir Kuntar. Does that name ring a bell? In January 1978, Kuntar and three other PLF terrorists hatched a plan to hijack an Israeli bus traveling from Beit She'an to nearby Tiberias. (Note: It had nothing to do with "occupied territories" or "settlements." This was to be an attack on a civilian bus within the pre-1967 borders.) The hijackers were arrested by the Jordanian police as they tried to swim across the Jordan River into Israel. In less than a year, however, Jordan set them free. Apparently the Jordanians don't regard conspiracy to commit mass murder of Jews as a particularly serious crime.In April 1979, four PLF gangsters led by Kuntar infiltrated the northern Israeli coastal city of Nahariya. They murdered an Israeli policeman and broke into an apartment at random. The mother, Smadar Haran hid in a closet with her two year-old daughter Yael, and a neighbor. While trying to keep Yael from crying, Smadar accidentally smothered her.The terrorist took the father, Danny Haran, and their four year-old daughter Einat hostage, and forced them at gunpoint to the nearby beachfront. There Kuntar shot Danny in the head and murdered Einat by crushing her with the butt of his rifle (or with a large rock, according to some reports). Kuntar was captured by the Israelis--and then released in a 2008 prisoner exchange.Now, thanks to the Iranians, Kuntar lives in the Syrian-controlled section of the Golan Heights. Perhaps not surprisingly, he is the recipient of a Syrian Order of Merit from his kindred spirit, the mass murderer Bashar Assad. "Kuntar has recruited local Syrians to join the ranks of his cell," the Israeli officer said.How serious is the likelihood of attacks from Kuntar's group and other terror gangs in the Golan? "At any given moment, the IDF Northern Command faces at least two warnings of impending attacks in the Golan region," the officer said. In fact, just two weeks ago, the IDF "conducted an exercise simulating an Israeli incursion into Syria in response to attacks on the border….The main threat in the area is posed by jihadi groups, not the Syrian military.""At any given moment." Sure enough, just four days later, Iranian rockets from Syria struck in the Upper Galilee. Air-raid sirens sounded for the first time in years, as residents of local town and kibbutzim grabbed their children and ran, panic-stricken, to their bomb shelters.It was bad enough when it turned out that the Iran deal would give the Iranians hundreds of millions of dollars, which they could use to help Hezbollah and Hamas. And it was bad enough when it was revealed that Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamanei, recently authored a 416-page book on the need to destroy Israel.But now it turns out that the danger is not hypothetical, and Tehran is not just using words. It is already engaged in a daily proxy terror war against America's ally, Israel.Will Members of Congress ignore these “facts on the ground” as they are weighing how to vote on the Iran agreement? Mr. Korn, chairman of the Philadelphia Religious Zionists, is former executive editor of the Philadelphia Jewish Exponent and the Miami Jewish Tribune.

Matisyahu: I Was 'Really Nervous' Facing PLO Flags-Reggae artist kept cool on stage at festival, but says 'I’ve never had the experience of anything like that, as a Jew or anything.'By Gil Ronen-First Publish: 8/30/2015, 8:51 PM-israelnationalnews
Reggae artist and former hassidic Jew Matisyahu has opened up in an interview about his experience at the Rototom Sunsplash festival Spain last week – and he says was not a pleasant one.The singer-songwriter has been hailed as a Jewish hero since the festival, in which he faced down a hostile, PLO-flag-waving audience and even sang his song “Jerusalem.”He told The Daily Beast in a phone interview that when he stood back stage, he noticed a PLO flag in the audience, but when he stepped on stage “about 20 flags came out.”“People were standing on each other’s shoulders with flags giving me the middle finger. It was intense. It was not peaceful. It was like ‘F*** you, Matisyahu.’ I’ve never had the experience of anything like that, as a Jew or anything in my life.”He said that the performance was one of the only times he’s ever felt unsafe onstage.“I just assumed everyone in the festival was going to be regular reggae festival-goers, so I got really nervous. I felt totally open and that anyone could do whatever they want,” he said.His performance followed pressure from anti-Israel forces that led to the cancellation of his invitation, international controversy, and then to a last-minute apology and re-invitation.While his performance was seen by Jews as an in-your-face affirmation of his Judaism and Zionism, Matisyahu made no such statement in the interview. “I’m not a political scientist, and I don’t claim to know all the details and the facts of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I haven’t chosen a side,” he told The Daily Beast.
