Iran says it has moved 11 tons of heavy water to Oman-Transfer comes after Iran exceeded its permitted limit of substance, marking its second violation of nuke deal this year-By AP November 22, 2016, 3:29 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
TEHRAN — Iran says it has transferred 11 tons of heavy water, which can be used in the production of nuclear arms, to Oman.The head of Iran’s nuclear program, Ali Akbar Salehi, was quoted by official media Tuesday as saying that the heavy water, which is used to cool reactors that produce plutonium, was transferred to the Arab country. Oman often serves as a mediator between Iran and the West.On Sunday, Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said that the heavy water was being transferred to Oman for sale, as several foreign firms and countries-A recent report from the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency said that Iran exceeded its heavy water limit by 100 kilograms (220 pounds) over the 130 metric tons allowed under last year’s nuclear agreement, a small but significant violation, drawing criticicism from the head of the UN’s atomic watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, for Tehran’s second breach this year of the 2015 nuclear deal with major powers.“It is important that such situations should be avoided in the future in order to maintain international confidence in the implementation” of the deal, Yukiya Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said last week in Vienna.Heavy water, a modified form of normal water, is used in certain types of nuclear reactors.The 2015 nuclear deal, known officially as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, states that Iran’s “needs” are estimated to be around 130 metric tons of heavy water.The 2015 nuclear accord went into effect in January to cap Tehran’s nuclear activities in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions.US president-elect Donald Trump has said his “number-one priority is to dismantle the disastrous deal with Iran,” and that “we will enforce it like you’ve never seen a contract enforced before, folks, believe me,” leading to much speculation on the future of the nuclear deal.Times of Israel Staff contributed to this report.
Iran’s revolutionary guards seek to expand power following US election-Hardliners aim to use Trump victory to cement their political, economic, and military power home and abroad-By Alexander Fulbright November 22, 2016, 7:14 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Iranian hardliners are eyeing the victory of Donald Trump as the next US president as an opportunity to strengthen its political and military power and influence within the Islamic Republic and aboard, said a senior Iranian official.The election of Donald Trump was a “gift from God to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps,” the official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Reuters news agency on Monday.Another Iranian official told Reuters that “if Trump adopts a hostile policy towards Iran or scraps the (nuclear) deal, hardliners and particularly the IRGC will benefit from it.”The IRGC is a branch of Iran’s military whose mission is to secure the country’s “revolutionary” Islamic character at home and export it abroad. It also dominates large sectors of the Iranian economy, due to its proximity to Iran’s clerical leadership.Trump has variously vowed to “dismantle” and rigorously enforce the year-old nuclear deal.Iranian officials told Reuters that if Trump takes a hard line towards Iran and reimposes sanctions, the IRGC will be the chief benefactor, as recent deals such as the one with French energy giant Total will instead be given to the IRGC.An aggressive stance by Trump towards Iran will also strengthen the IRGC politically, as the approach of negotiating with the West championed by the so-called reformist faction led by Hassan Rouhani will be viewed as having failed, validating the IRGC’s belief that there is no place for accommodation and compromise with the western powers led by the US.This in turn will allow the IRGC to use the weakness of Rouhani and his allies to crack down on its political opponents, as it did in 1999 during the presidency of close Rouhani associate Mohammad Khatami, and again in 2009 following the rigged re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who worked to strengthen the IRGC during his presidency.An Iranian official also told Reuters that “the IRGC will adopt a more aggressive and tougher approach in the coming months” in terms of its military operations, seeking to strengthen its proxies such as Bashar Assad’s regime in Syria, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Shia militias in Iraq and the Houthis in Yemen, as a means of waging its war for influence over the Middle East with its Sunni rival Saudi Arabia.
Netanyahu defends his attorney in submarines affair: ‘Straight as a ruler’-PM says David Shimron, facing accusations of using access to further Navy purchase, is stickler for law and regulations-By Times of Israel staff November 22, 2016, 6:02 pm
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday defended his under-fire personal lawyer David Shimron as “straight as a ruler,” after reports alleged Shimron sought to use his influence to push through a major submarine deal for the Israeli Navy.“The prime minister has for many years known attorney David Shimron to be straight as an arrow,” a statement from Netanyahu’s office said, describing the attorney as “a man who is over-scrupulous in adhering to the law and regulations, as well as a first-rate lawyer.”On Monday, Hebrew-language media reported allegations that Shimron had used his close relationship to Netanyahu to push Israel to purchase several submarines from the German shipbuilder ThyssenKrupp, as well as to allow the company to build a shipyard here, effectively outsourcing lucrative maintenance of the naval vessels.A week ago, Shimron claimed that he “wasn’t in touch with any state official over the issue of Israel’s purchase of naval vessels” and said that his work for the German company while also serving as the prime minister’s lawyer did not constitute a conflict of interest, according to the Haaretz daily.However, after Israel issued an international tender in 2014 for the purchase of ships to protect newly developed Mediterranean gas fields, Shimron called the legal adviser of the Defense Ministry, Ahaz Ben-Ari, to inquire why a tender was issued, as he wanted the contract to be given to ThyssenKrupp without a competitive tender process.According to Channel 10, Shimron never mentioned to Ben-Ari at any point during the phone call that he was representing ThyssenKrupp.Hebrew language media said Shimron had been hired by ThyssenKrupp’s exclusive representative in Israel, businessman Michael Ganor.However, the German company denied that Ganor had Thyssenkrupp’s approval to hire Shimron.“Our sales partners are contractually obligated to consult with Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems before engaging sub-contractors. This has not happened,” the company told The Times of Israel, adding that it had no further information on the issue.“We do what we always do as part of our process, if we get indications of irregularities: We fully check and clarify the facts,” Thyssenkrupp said.Following the release of Channel 10’s report, Shimron denied the story, saying he “never complained about the issuance of a tender.”He said that he merely “turned to the Defense Ministry’s legal adviser with a question. I’m permitted to do that under my conflict of interest agreement, and in this case, my call was strictly a question.”Channel 10 reported that Netanyahu also asked the Defense Ministry why the contract was opened for competitive bidding, and pressured the Defense Ministry to cancel the tender, which eventually happened.Netanyahu has denied any wrongdoing in the multi-billion-shekel deal for the submarines, saying that bolstering Israel’s long-term security needs was the “only consideration” behind the purchases.On Sunday, the attorney general announced there was no evidence of wrongdoing that might justify a criminal investigation, but said a probe into other unspecified issues regarding the deal would continue.Opposition lawmakers have vowed to push for a parliamentary inquiry into the affair.
Syria army announces a new anti-terrorism force-Regime troops tell residents of war-ravaged Aleppo to leave besieged areas and ask rebels to share provisions with civilians-By Agencies November 22, 2016, 5:23 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
BEIRUT — Syria’s military has announced it is forming a new commando force, calling on volunteers interested in “achieving the final victory against terrorism” to apply.The announcement Tuesday named the new anti-terrorism force the Fifth Corps.There were no details on who would man the battalion or when and where it would fight.Syria’s army has relied heavily in the fight against rebels on local pro-government militias as well as Lebanon’s Shiite militant group Hezbollah and forces from Iran and Russia.This announcement comes a year after the Syrian armed forces announced the formation of the Fourth Corps, also an anti-terrorism force, soon after Russia began its military operations alongside the Syrian government.The army declaration read on State TV also comes as the pace of government warnings to the residents of the besieged rebel-held part of eastern Aleppo city rises. State TV on Tuesday aired announcements urging armed opposition groups to allow civilians to exit the besieged enclave through government-designated corridors.The army, which has besieged the east for months, also demanded that rebels distribute food to civilians, while calling on residents to cooperate with its advancing troops.The military airdropped leaflets with a picture of a green coach like those used in the past to transport civilians and rebels from areas retaken by the government.“To those involved in carrying weapons, we stretch out our hand to you. Reserve your place before it is too late,” the leaflets read.The picture showed the coach on a road marked “the path of salvation.”In a separate statement carried by state media, the army accused rebels of using the 250,000 civilians still in the east as “human shields” and demanded they be allowed to leave.“Permit those citizens who want to do so to leave, stop using them as hostages and human shields, clear the mines from the crossings identified by the state,” the army said.Syria’s government and its ally Moscow have said several crossings are available for civilians and surrendering rebels to cross from east Aleppo, but they accuse opposition fighters of preventing departures.The statement urged “brother citizens in east Aleppo to cooperate with the Syrian Arab Army,” while stressing its “firm commitment to their security and safety.”The army accuses rebels of hoarding food in the east, where aid rations have run out after nearly four months of government siege, and said Tuesday that fighters should distribute rations.“We call on the gunmen in east Aleppo to open their warehouses and distribute food rations to those in need,” the army said.On Monday, UN humanitarian chief Stephen O’Brien condemned the use of sieges in Syria, saying nearly one million people across the country were under blockades, most imposed by the regime.“Civilians are being isolated, starved, bombed, denied medical attention and humanitarian assistance in order to force them to submit or flee,” he told the UN Security Council.
Court rejects plea to delay demolition of Bedouin village-Judge says appeal to stave off destruction of Umm al Hiran made in ‘bad faith’ as plaintiffs waited till last minute-By Dov Lieber November 22, 2016, 5:28 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The Beersheba Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday rejected a last-minute appeal to delay the evacuation and demolition of a Bedouin village in southern Israel that has become a rallying cry for Arab Israelis and rights groups.Israel is seeking to move the formerly nomadic residents of Umm al-Hiran to a government-designated Bedouin township to make room for the construction of a new Jewish communal village on the land, which is owned by the state.The court’s decision follows what protesters saw as a small victory after police suddenly delayed the demolition operation Tuesday morning. Lawmakers from the Arab Joint List party and activists from around the country had arrived at the village overnight to block the demolition.There was no immediate word on a new date for the demolition.Police spokesperson Luba Samri said the decision to delay was made in order “to allow the legal process to exhaust itself following a last-minute appeal to the court.”The court struck down the appeal, filed by the Adalah legal aid center for Israel’s Arabs, saying judicial measures had already been exhausted and that plaintiffs had not acted in good faith. The court decision noted that three separate courts have considered the case, and that negotiations have gone on for years without a solution. And it said the plaintiffs did not file the request until the morning the demolition was slated to take place, despite knowing the slated date over a month and a half in advance, a sign of the appeal’s “lack of good faith.”MK Ayman Odeh, head of the Joint List, wrote on Twitter before he court handed down its decision that the “struggle” to prevent the destruction of the village would continue.“A night of solidarity in Umm Al-Hiran with activists from around the country, Arabs and Jews… prepared to stand hand-in-hand in front of the bulldozers. The eviction was postponed; the struggle continues,” Odeh wrote.Umm al-Hiran, home to nearly 500 people, was established by the Bedouin Al-Qia’an tribe in 1956 in coordination with the IDF, after a nearly decade-long dispute. Following Israel’s 1948 War of Independence, the tribe members were evicted by Israeli soldiers from their homes in the northwestern Negev, near Kibbutz Shoval, and lived in various locations until finally being moved to the current site. The story of the neighboring village of Atir is much the same.A new Jewish village called Hiran is set to be built in place of Umm al-Hiran and the neighboring village of Atir, which will initially include 2,500 housing units. The new community will comprise mostly religious Jewish families.The Bedouin villagers have been told they would receive 800-square-meter plots in the nearby town of Hura, built by the government in 1989 specifically to absorb and urbanize Bedouins from the surrounding unrecognized villages and tent encampments.Inhabitants have appealed the move through the court system, but their claims have largely been rejected, with judges saying the action did not constitute discrimination as the Bedouins were being offered viable alternatives and could theoretically live in the new town as well.The final appeal to the Supreme Court to keep their villages from being demolished was rejected in January.In 2016, the two most important annual political events in the Arab Israeli calendar, Land Day and the March of Return, took place near Umm al-Hiran in a show of solidarity.AP contributed to this report.
Italian gay rights group rejects anti-Israel ‘pinkwashing’ accusation-Delegitimizing Israel distracts from efforts to protect LGBT people, say activists, condemning Hamas and PA treatment of gays-By Times of Israel staff November 22, 2016, 7:34 pm
The Italian gay rights organization Associazione Radicale Certi Diritti passed a resolution at its national congress this week condemning the de-legitimization of Israel by LGBT rights groups through the accusation of “pinkwashing,” the argument that Israel was a gay-friendly country as a means for covering for its treatment of Palestinians.The campaign was a distraction from efforts to advance the fight to protect people of all sexual orientations and genders, it said.“The alarming increase in political calls by LGBTI groups to boycott Israel,” the group said in its resolution, “diverts from the real battle these group should hold, i.e. the advocacy for the promotion of LGBTI rights among the Palestinian people.”The organization praised Israel for being the only state in the Middle East which protects LGBTI rights and condemned the Palestinian Authority and Hamas for not recognizing the rights of the LGTBI community.“The battle for the recognition of LGBTI rights in the countries where this community is persecuted, including the Palestinian Authority and Hamas’s ruled Gaza Strip, should be a commitment of all the associations for human rights,” the resolution says.“These organizations must reject all the ideologies opposing the existence of Israel as a Jewish and democratic State, the only country in the Middle East protecting sexual orientation and gender identity.”
Numerous homes destroyed as major blaze hits Zichron Yaakov-Eight people, including 10-day old, treated for smoke inhalation; residents of Givat Eden neighborhood ordered to evacuate; fire in nearby Atlit causes school to clear out-By Times of Israel staff November 22, 2016, 2:25 pm
Brush fires broke out in several places around northern Israel Tuesday afternoon, including a major blaze in and around the town of Zichron Yaakov that engulfed dozens of homes and caused police to evacuate several neighborhoods.Eight people, including children aged 7, 2 and 10 days old, were treated for smoke inhalation as the fire licked the forest around the city and encroached on tony neighborhoods of private homes in the northeast of the hillside city, according to the Magen David Adom rescue service.At least 10 homes were destroyed in the blaze, Israel Radio reported.Firefighters dispatched eight planes and 40 vehicles to tamp down the fire, the Ynet news website reported.Residents of the neighborhood of Givat Eden and surrounding areas were urged to leave their homes and shut their gas lines.The fire is believed to have broken out due to the negligence of hikers in the area, Israel Radio said.The blaze was the latest in a day that has seen several fires whipped up by high winds and dry conditions, starting with a forest fire that caused the middle of the night evacuation of the Neve Shalom community outside Jerusalem.Residents of the coexistence community were told they could return to their homes late Tuesday morning after firefighters successfully beat back the fire before it reached the village.Firefighters were also battling blazes near a school in the nearby town of Atlit, south of Haifa, leading to the evacuation of around 200 students from the school, according to Israel Hayom.There were no reports of injuries in Atlit.Fires were also reported Tuesday near Nesher, a suburb of Haifa, and Hadera, south of the bay city.Officials say unseasonably dry conditions and high winds have made the area ripe for brush fires.In 2010, a blaze in the nearby Carmel Forest lead to he deaths of 44 people, the deadliest blaze in the country’s history.
After Nazi salutes, Trump camp denounces racism, but not alt-right-Spokesperson says US president-elect will lead all Americans, doesn’t specifically mention white-supremacist confab; Holocaust Museum warns of similarities to Hitler-By Stuart Winer November 22, 2016, 10:34 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
A spokesperson for US President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team denounced racism Monday night in response to a right-wing conference during which Nazi-like salutes were given to celebrate the victorious Republican candidate and a key speaker espoused white supremacist ideology.At the same time, the US Holocaust Museum issued a chilling warning, saying the speech had closely mirrored the views of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.The statements came after a video was posted by The Atlantic Monday night showing Richard Spencer, the head of the white nationalist National Policy Institute, as he evoked Nazi imagery and language, ranted about white supremacy, and alluded to Jewish control of the media during an NPI event in Washington.“Hail Trump! Hail our people! Hail victory!” cried out Spencer, who is often described as the leader of the the American alt-right movement. A rapturous audience at the Saturday event responded with applause and several gave the signature stiff-arm Nazi salute.In response, Bryan Lanza, a spokesman for the Trump-Pence transition team, insisted in a statement that Trump has a record of condemning racism, CNN reported. He apparently did not specifically comment on the NPI event.“President-elect Trump has continued to denounce racism of any kind and he [got] elected because he will be a leader for every American,” Lanza said. “To think otherwise is a complete misrepresentation of the movement that united Americans from all backgrounds.”Trump transition statement on alt right conference where neo nazis and white nationalists were praising Trump's election pic.twitter.com/XZCxVSS6Jt— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) November 21, 2016-“PBS Newshour” producer P.J. Tobia tweeted that Spencer had sent him a message insisting that the salutes were “clearly done in a spirit of irony and exuberance.”Nonetheless, the conference has raised anew fears of rampant racism and anti-Semitism in the wake of Trump’s victory. While Trump’s team has sought to distance itself from racist elements among supporters, the appointment of Stephen Bannon as a top White House aide has raised hackles given his nurturing of the alt-right movement while at the helm of news site Breitbart.Trump himself has been markedly silent on the issue, at one point even refusing to condemn ex-KKK leader David Duke.Richard Spencer just texted me that the Nazi salutes at his Sat speech were “clearly done in a spirit of irony and exuberance.”— P.J. Tobia (@PJTobia) November 21, 2016-The US Holocaust Museum issued a statement Monday night saying it “is deeply alarmed at the hateful rhetoric” at the NPI conference and that Spencer’s allusion to Jewish media control “closely echoes Adolf Hitler’s view of Jews and that history is a racial struggle for survival.”“The Holocaust did not begin with killing; it began with words,” the museum statement added. “The Museum calls on all American citizens, our religious and civic leaders, and the leadership of all branches of the government to confront racist thinking and divisive hateful speech.”During the NPI’s annual conference, held at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC, Spencer spoke in militaristic terms, expressing the movement’s need to “conquer or die,” and railed against the mainstream media which he smilingly called Lugenpresse, a term used by Nazis that translates as “lying press.”He then appeared to insinuate that the media was controlled by Jews, referencing the Jewish legend of the Golem of Prague. “One wonders if these people are people at all,” he said of journalists. “Or instead soulless golem animated by some dark power to repeat” left-wing talking points.Since Trump’s election, much ink has been spilled over his campaign’s part in the rise of the alt-right, a vague grouping of far-right nationalists who have taken a hard line against immigration and what they see as the cultural degradation of America.Spencer, who is credited with coining the name, has made clear that in his eyes the alt-right is by no means a mere nationalist movement but one based on a doctrine of white supremacy and hatred toward Jews and non-whites.Last week, Spencer’s Twitter account was suspended for violating prohibitions on “violent threats, harassment, hateful conduct,” leading him to lash out at what he called “corporate Stalinism” and say that “there is a great purge going on,” according to AFP.Alexander Fulbright contributed to this report.
