DANIEL 11:36-39
36 And the king (EU DICTATOR) shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces:(WAR) and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

EU states eye production of new fighter jet By Andrew Rettman-euobserver

BRUSSELS, 12. Jun, 09:25-Airbus, the French-based firm, is preparing to make a new fighter jet as the EU rolls out its defence integration project.Fernando Alonso, the head of the firm’s military branch, told Handelsblatt, a German newspaper, that Germany and Spain have already signed up for the project and that he hoped France would also come on board.“We are working on various building blocks in Germany and Spain, some of the financing comes from the governments, we hope for more," he said.“We hope that France will also participate, because we have to work together in Europe, there is no more space for two or three different systems”, he added.Referring to EU defence integration, he said: “The time is ripe for making and implementing a decision in Europe”.The Airbus project is to be called the Future Combat Air System (FCAS) and is to replace the Eurofighter and Tornado fighter jet models in Germany as well as the F18 in Spain.If France joined, it might also replace the French fighter jet, the Rafale, when that becomes obsolete in 2030, Handelsblatt said.Another option would be to buy F35 fighter jets from the US.But that would be seen as an untimely gift for US leader Donald Trump, who has belittled and confused EU allies since coming to power.Investing in US fighter jets would also go against the EU’s stated aim to achieve technological and strategic “sovereignty” as part of its new defence plan, which includes a €1.5-billion a year R&D and joint procurement fund designed to stimulate projects such as the FCAS.-Brexit implications-Trump aside, the Airbus project comes as the UK, the EU’s main military power, prepares to start exit talks.Airbus currently employs 10,000 people at two manufacturing plants in the UK.But its chief operating officer, Fabrice Bregier, told the Sunday Times, a British newspaper, that unless the UK negotiates an amicable deal with the EU then it will move those plants elsewhere.He said the Brexit deal must allow its staff freedom of movement to come and work in the UK and must allow it to ship parts free from punitive tariffs."For new productions, it's very easy to have a new plant somewhere in the world. We would have plenty of offers to do that," he said."We want to stay in the UK - provided the conditions to work in an integrated organisation are met”, he added.Correction: The article now says Spain aims to replace its F18 jet, not F16, as previously reported.

EU parliament holds off on makeover of its building By Peter Teffer-june 13,17-euobserver

Strasbourg, Today, 13:28-The European Parliament will not order any grand-scale renovation or a rebuilding of its Brussels-based Paul Henri Spaak (PHS) building in the near future.The so-called Bureau met on Monday evening (12 June) to discuss an assessment of the building's state.The Bureau consists of parliament's president, Antonio Tajani, alongside 19 other MEPs, and is responsible for the parliament's organisational matters.According to a press release issued on Tuesday, the Bureau decided to ask the parliament's secretary-general, Klaus Welle, to come with “detailed proposals on possible solutions for the refurbishment” of the PHS building, but “at a later stage”.These proposals should look at “all potential options”, including “no action, renovation, and reconstruction”.Brussels-based news website Politico reported on Monday, before the meeting, that the building does not meet the European building standards.UK tabloid newspapers said on Monday that the UK could be forced to pay between £53 million (€60 million) and £58 million (€65 million) for the refurbishment.However, these concerns now seem premature.The PHS building was constructed in the 1990s and named after Paul Henri Spaak, one of Belgium's founding fathers of European integration.-'Crumbling' building-At a press conference about the EU's Erasmus+ education programme, when asked, Tajani only announced there would be “an official communique” on the refurbishment subject - which was published less than two hours later - but he would not comment further.Bureau member Catherine Bearder, a British MEP from the Liberal Democrat party, told EUobserver on Tuesday that she had not attended Monday's meeting.However, she did suggest some refurbishment would be reasonable, since the current building was “crumbling”.But the Bureau members, who decided to hold off on any decision, will have considered that any costly project involving the EU parliament's premises might not sit well with voters.The next EU elections are less than two years away - a preliminary date is set for 6 to 9 June 2019.

No new date for Brexit talks after EU meeting By Eszter Zalan-JUNE 13,17-EUOBSERVER

BRUSSELS, Today, 07:43-No date was set for opening Brexit negotiations during a meeting on Monday (12 June) between the EU’s chief negotiator and the UK’s top civil servant dealing with Britain’s exit from the bloc.Michel Barnier, the EU’s top negotiator, and Oliver Robbins, the permanent secretary for the department for exiting the EU, met over lunch in Brussels, along with Tim Barrow, the UK’s envoy to the EU.The three attempted to hammer out a date and a timeline for the negotiations amid concerns the opening of the talks could be delayed due to last week's British elections, which produced a minority government in London, whose future looks unstable.The top diplomats on Monday agreed to have further discussion at technical level this week, sources said.Negotiations were due to start on 19 June, but that date is now up in the air, as British prime minister Theresa May unexpectedly lost her majority in parliament.She is forming a coalition with Northern Ireland’s largest unionist party, the DUP, and securing the support of Tory backbenchers, while the EU is still in the dark about the UK’s specific negotiating positions.“We are fully prepared and ready for negotiations to start,” European Commission spokesman Alexander Winterstein said on Tuesday before the Barnier-Robbins meeting."When will be the point from moving to talking about talks to more detailed discussions, I cannot say, it doesn’t depend entirely on us,” he added.In an interview with several European newspapers, Barnier said that he was "preoccupied by the passing of time" and that he saw "no utility and no interest" in waiting further before starting the negotiations."Any further delay is a source of instability, which the economy and employment do not need," he said.He added that he still wanted to reach an agreement with the UK "in October or November 2018".-March 2019 deadline-Talks about talks are expected to continue among diplomats and civil servants.Time is running out fast, however. Since May launched the formal exit procedure by sending her Article 50 notification letter in March, the clock has started ticking.Unless the government in London convinces the EU 27 to agree to continue talks with the UK beyond March 2019, Britain will automatically crash out of the bloc without a deal that specifies the terms of its divorce.Meanwhile, the Commission, the EU’s executive has published its final negotiating positions on safeguarding the rights of EU citizens living in the UK and UK citizens living in the EU, as well as on the financial settlement with the UK.The Commission’s starting position, which is bound to collide with London’s expectations once talks get under way, is for the EU executive to keep “monitoring” that rights are respected, and to have the European Court of Justice protect those rights for the lifetime of those citizens.The Commission also published what it thinks the UK owes the bloc because of previous obligations: their share of the EU budget, contributions to EU bodies and institutions, and commitments made to EU funds and facilities.The document does not mention a specific sum for the exit bill.Discussions on the financial settlement will prove to be highly sensitive, especially if May has a slim backing at home to push through any agreement.The UK questions whether it has any obligations to pay once it is out of the club, an EU source said.

Lady Brexit meets Monsieur Europe: May, Macron to have talks-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 13, 2017

PARIS — British Prime Minister Theresa May is meeting France's president on her first foreign trip since a catastrophic election that weakened her leadership as Britain heads into tough talks on leaving the European Union.The two are on opposite fronts of the Brexit negotiations — French President Emmanuel Macron wants the remaining EU nations to stand tough and unite even more closely as Britain departs.But May and Macron want to deepen counterterrorism co-operation after a string of attacks hit both of their countries, and they are notably talking Tuesday about ways to incite tech companies to better police online extremism. Macron's office said the leaders will discuss ways to boost anti-terrorism efforts both bilaterally and on a European level.After the Islamic State group recruited hundreds of French fighters largely through online propaganda, France has legislation ordering French providers to block certain content, but recognizes that any such effort much reach well beyond its borders. Tech-savvy Macron has lobbied for tougher European rules, but details of his plans remain unclear.It's also unclear what Britain wants to propose. The country already has tough measures such as a law known as the Snooper' Charter, which gives authorities the powers to look at the internet browsing records of everyone in the country. Among other things, the law requires telecommunications companies to keep records of all users' web activity for a year, creating databases of personal information that the firms worry could be vulnerable to leaks and hackers.After their talks, May and Macron will watch a France-England soccer match that will honour victims of recent attacks in Manchester and London, with a moment of silence and the Oasis song "Don't Look Back in Anger" played by the French Republican Guard.France's players were touched by the overwhelming show of support they received from England fans when they played a friendly at Wembley Stadium on Nov. 17, 2015 — just four days after the deadly attacks that swept through Paris. England fans that night sang along with the French anthem and numerous other tributes were on display.The Associated Press.

Toronto board of health votes in favour of decriminalizing marijuana now-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-June 12, 2017

Toronto's board of health supports the call to immediately decriminalize marijuana, a recommendation prompted to prevent more possession convictions leading up to pot's impending legalization.On Monday, the board voted unanimously in favour of that decision, recommended by Toronto's medical officer of health, Dr. Eileen de Villa.The federal government has set its sights on legalizing marijuana in Canada by July 2018.But de Villa wrote that "a significant number of young Canadians will continue to obtain criminal charges before cannabis is legalized," in a report released on May 29.Also among de Villa's recommendations are clamping down on how legal marijuana is marketed and promoted, especially when it comes to young people, and setting the minimum age of purchase at 19.She also called for the establishment of a provincially-controlled agency separate from the LCBO to sell marijuana.The board of health is composed of city council members, citizens, and an education representative, and provides advice to city council on a variety of public health issues.

GOD CREATED THEM MALE AND FEMALE IN MARRIAGE

GENESIS 1:27-28
27  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply,(HAVE LOTS OF CHILDREN) and replenish the earth,(HOMOSEXUALS CAN NOT REPLENISH THE EARTH WITH CHILDREN)(BY HAVING SEX WITH EACH OTHER) and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

GENESIS 2:21-24
21  And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22  And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23  And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24  Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

MATTHEW 19:4-6
4  And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
5  And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
6  Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

ROMANS 1:18-32
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:(HOMOSEXUALITY,AND ALL SEX SINS)
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:(LESBIENS)
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly,(SODOMITES) and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.(AIDS ETC)
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

ITS THAT TIME OF YEAR WHEN THE SODOMITE RAINBOW GROUPERS DANCE LIKE A BUNCH OF LUNATICS AND WAVING THEIR HANDS LIKE SATANS PUPPETS.THE SODOMITES ARE SO PROUD TO LOOK LIKE A BUNCH OF FROGS LEAPING WITH LUSTFUL PLEASURE.BUT GOD HATES A PROUD LOOK AND SATAN BECAUSE OF BEING THE FIRST PROUD.WAS BOOTED OUT OF HEAVEN.THIS SHOULD WARN THE GAY MIXED BAG OF EVERYTHING CROWD.WITH A WORD LIKE PROUD CONNECTED TO YOUR LUSTFUL CULT OF SIN.YOU CAN NOT GET INTO HEAVEN UNLESS YOU GET SAVED.

We are part of the city': pride flag raised at Regina city hall-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-June 12, 2017

The pride flag is a symbol of the LGBT community and serves as recognition between it and the City of Regina, according to Dan Shier, co-chair of Regina Pride."It acknowledges our presence and the fact that we are part of the City of Regina, the community here as a whole."The flag was raised at Regina's city hall on Monday morning as part of the 28th annual pride celebrations in the city, which started June 9.​Connectivity is the theme of 2017, which Shier said explores the ways in which the LGBT is connected to other causes, such as human rights.The theme also looks inward at the people who make up the community and the way they interact with each other and the surrounding environment."It is just one giant community but there's also a lot of intricate little part inside of it, all worthy of their own voices that need to be heard," Shier said."It draws attention to the need to recognize and respect a diverse and challenging landscape of society today."Some of the issues Shier referred to were race, religion, homelessness and age, among others."Things like that are issues that we, as a community, also need to be aware of and supporting," Shier said. "And that's kind of what the theme itself is all about." Pride events are being held in more than 12 Saskatchewan communities this month. The Regina City Pride Festival runs until June 18.

Colombia's first three-man marriage legally recognized-Agence France-Presse-YAHOONEWS-June 13, 2017

Bogota (AFP) - Three gay men say they have gained legal recognition as the first "polyamorous family" in Colombia, where same-sex marriages were legalized last year."We wanted to validate our household... and our rights, because we had no solid legal basis establishing us as a family," said one of the men, actor Victor Hugo Prada, in a video published by Colombian media on Monday.He said he and his two partners, sports instructor John Alejandro Rodriguez and journalist Manuel Jose Bermudez, signed legal papers with a solicitor in the city of Medellin, establishing them as a family unit with inheritance rights."This establishes us as a family, a polyamorous family. It is the first time in Colombia that has been done."Lawyer and gay rights activist German Rincon Perfetti said there are many three-person unions in Colombia but this was the first one to be legally recognized."It is a recognition that other types of family exist," he told AFP.A ruling by the constitutional court in April 2016 made Colombia the fourth South American country to definitively legalize same-sex marriage, after Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.

Rain-triggered landslides kill at least 68 in Bangladesh-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 13, 2017

DHAKA, Bangladesh — Heavy rain triggered landslides that killed at least 68 people in southeast Bangladesh, officials said Tuesday, as police and soldiers struggled to reach the remote districts with aid.It was not immediately clear if any villagers were still missing after large chunks of mud swept over thatched homes and settlements in three hilly districts on Monday.Reports said scores of people were injured and the death toll could rise.Military spokesman Rezaul Karim said several soldiers were killed while clearing debris and mud from a highway. Five injured soldiers were flown to a military hospital in Dhaka."Two officers and two soldiers have died, and two others remain missing in the incident," Karim said by telephone.Rains that began early Monday had cleared by Tuesday, allowing rescuers to work faster in searching for survivors. But the firefighters, police and soldiers deployed to help were having trouble reaching some affected areas, said Reaz Ahmed, a senior disaster management official."The death toll could rise since many areas remain cut off," he said.Bangladesh is in the middle of monsoon season but Monday's downpour was caused by a depression in the Bay of Bengal.Officials said at least 35 were dead in Rangamati, one of the worst-hit districts, and 23 were killed in Chittagong. At least 10 others died in Bandarban, according to fire official Tarikul Islam.Extensive devastation was reported in the region.In Rangamati's remote Kawkhali area, one of the worst-hit, about 5,000 homes were either destroyed or damaged, police chief Addul Karim said. He said authorities opened six temporary shelters.Bangladesh, a delta nation of 160 million people, is prone to natural disasters such as cyclones, floods and landslides. Many people in hilly regions ignore authorities' calls to avoid constructing homes on slopes.Julhas Alam, The Associated Press.

State of emergency declared on quake-hit Greek island Lesbos-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 13, 2017

ATHENS, Greece — Authorities in Greece have declared a state of emergency on the island of Lesbos after an earthquake left one woman dead and more than 800 people displaced.The 6.2 magnitude undersea quake on Monday occurred south of Lesbos but was felt as far as Istanbul, Turkey.Officials from the island's regional government on Tuesday said homes in 12 villages in southern Lesbos had been seriously damaged or destroyed. The mostly elderly residents affected were being housed with relatives, in hotels or at an army-run shelter.The earthquake marked the second crisis to hit the island in the last two years, after hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees, including many fleeing war in Syria and Iraq, crossed to Lesbos on boats from Turkey as they headed to Europe.The Associated Press.

Fast-tracking skilled immigrants only a start, tech industry insiders say-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-June 12, 2017

The federal government has launched its new immigration policy aimed at fast-tracking low-risk, highly skilled workers into vacant jobs here in Canada.But some technology industry advocates say it's just a start, and are looking for much more from the government's promised innovation agenda.The new program, called Global Talent Stream, sets a two-week turnaround for processing visas and short-term work permits.Some technology firms in Ottawa are desperately seeking software designers, computer programmers and engineers, and are eager to recruit skilled immigrants.-Year-long wait for talent-CEOs of Canadian startups have long complained about waiting up to a year to bring in highly specialized workers from abroad.It's hoped the new program will help Canadian firms better attract workers experienced in scaling up companies, according to Benjamin Bergen, executive director of the Council of Canadian Innovators."We know there's a massive labour shortage for highly skilled talent workers in high growth firms and being able to bring in those one or two people will really help them scale growth, but it will also allow them to hire more people domestically as well," said Bergen.He noted that with border and immigration restrictions tightening south of the border, some workers will look to Canada rather than the U.S. for new opportunities.-Lacking metrics-While John Reid, CEO of the Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance, is glad to finally see the new skills policy in place, he said there's still a lot of work to be done to make Canada a truly competitive "innovation nation."Reid said Canada still needs to update its policies concerning intellectual property, and better manage its many acceleration and incentive initiatives such as the Scientific Research and Experimental Development Tax Incentive Program."We lack a single agency to manage the 147 innovation programs. We have no metrics to access the outcome and benefits of these programs," said Reid. "It's positive steps, but it's steps that don't have the sort compelling context and political messaging that should be there," Reid said.

EU to launch action against 3 countries over refugee plan-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 13, 2017

BRUSSELS — The European Union warned the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland on Tuesday that they have 24 hours to start taking in refugees under an EU sharing plan or face legal action.The European Commission said in a statement that it has repeatedly urged the three countries to relocate refugees or at least pledge to do so under the legally-binding refugee plan agreed two years ago.But it said they haven't taken action "in breach of their legal obligations," and that it "has decided to launch infringement procedures."The plan to share 160,000 refugees in overwhelmed Italy and Greece among other European countries over two years was endorsed in September 2015 by a qualified majority vote.But just three months before the September 2017 deadline, fewer than 21,000 people have been relocated.The Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia voted against it. Hungary and Slovakia had previously launched their own legal action against the scheme.EU Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos said the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland have until Wednesday to change their minds."There is still time ahead. Let's hope that not only reason but also the European spirit will prevail," Avramopoulos told reporters, lamenting that the three "have not done anything for more than one year."But Poland said it stands ready to take legal action of its own."Poland is ready to defend its standpoint before the Court of Justice," Deputy Foreign Minister Konrad Szymanski said Tuesday.He warned that the commission's action "may deepen the divisions within the EU."Avramopoulos praised Austria and Slovakia for recently pledging to do more. But as of June 9, Austria had still not relocated a single refugee. Slovakia had taken in 16.The refugee scheme was seen as a major plank of the EU's migration policy, and was lauded as a pan-European show of solidarity in 2015 when more than a million people arrived in Europe seeking sanctuary or jobs.___Monika Scislowska in Warsaw, Poland, contributed to this report.Lorne Cook, The Associated Press.

Iraq: Mass food poisoning, 2 die at Mosul camp for displaced-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 13, 2017

HASSAN SHAM U2 CAMP, Iraq — Food poisoning at a camp for displaced residents of Mosul killed at least two people and sickened over 700, Iraq's health minister said Tuesday. Some officials accused a Qatar-based charity of providing tainted food — a claim that could not be confirmed.A woman and a girl died and at least 200 people were rushed from the desert tent camp to hospitals in the nearby city of Irbil.An Iraqi lawmaker who visited the camp overnight and Saudi state television quickly accused a charity from Qatar of providing the tainted food. The claims could not be independently confirmed and Qatari officials did not immediately answer calls for comment.In Baghdad, Health Minister Adila Hamoud told The Associated Press that 752 people became ill after a meal the previous evening at the Hassan Sham U2 camp, about 20 kilometres (13 miles) east of Mosul.The food was meant for an iftar, a meal with which Muslims break their dawn-to-dusk fasting during the holy month of Ramadan. Hamoud said at least 300 people remain in serious condition. She refused to speculate whether the poisoning might have been intentional.Amira Abdulhaliq, from the United Nations' refugee agency, said it remains unclear at which point in preparing, packaging, transporting or distributing the meals, the food became contaminated."So far, we have received around 800 cases, around 200 have been transported to the hospitals in Irbil," she said.At midday Tuesday, medics were treating patients in a large tent at the edge of the camp. About 20 to 30 patients, mostly small children, lay on blankets on the floor as several more serious cases were being ferried away by ambulances. At least one new patient was brought in during the day. Most of those afflicted were suffering from stomach cramps and dehydration, resulting from vomiting and diarrhea.Iraqi lawmaker Raad al-Dahlaki, who chairs the parliament's immigration and displacement committee and who visited the camp overnight, said the meal contained rice, a bean sauce, meat, yoghurt and water. He put the number of sickened people at 850.Al-Dahlaki said the food was distributed by a Qatari non-governmental organization, a charity known as RAF. He added that Iraqi officials were to meet those from the organization later on Tuesday. The Doha-based charity did not immediately respond to requests for comment.At a joint press conference later in the camp, Irbil police chief Abdulhaleq Talaat said seven people were arrested in connection with the incident. Irbil Governor Nawzad Hadi said only one person — a child — had died. The different death tolls could not immediately be reconciled.Talaat and Hadi said the food was prepared in an Irbil restaurant by a local NGO, Ain el Muhtajeen, under a donation by RAF. Dr Sabur Ahmed, head of Irbil children's hospital, said 22 children remained in hospital while the rest have been discharged.On Twitter, Saudi state television accused RAF of supplying the tainted meals and posted images it said showed the camp's children "poisoned by the terrorist Qatari RAF organization."Since a diplomatic crisis between Qatar and other Arab nations led by Saudi Arabia began June 5, Arab media across the greater Persian Gulf have daily unleashed a series of highly critical reports on Qatar. Those reports include highly provocative stories about Qatar allegedly trying to undermine regional security, often presented without attribution or evidence.RAF is the acronym for the Qatar-based Thani Bin Abdullah Al Thani Foundation for Humanitarian Services, a charity that collects donations to do aid work around the world, including providing meals to needy families during the holy fasting month of Ramadan.Qatari government officials also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.RAF is also among 12 organizations and 59 people put on what Saudi, Emirati and Bahraini officials described as a list of terror entities and individuals on Friday.On Qatari state television meanwhile, a repeatedly aired program has discussed how the ongoing diplomatic dispute has stopped it from providing meals to Syrian refugees at a major camp in Jordan.The Hassan Sham U2 camp houses thousands who have fled their homes in and around Mosul after a U.S.-backed Iraqi offensive was launched to dislodge the Islamic State group from the city last October. According to the U.N. refugee agency, it is home to 6,235 people.Iraq's second-largest city, Mosul, fell to IS in the summer of 2014 as the militants swept over much of the country's northern and western areas. Weeks later, the head of the Sunni extremist group, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, announced the formation of a self-styled caliphate in Iraq and Syria from the pulpit of a Mosul mosque.Months after the start of the Iraqi offensive, IS militants now only control a handful of neighbourhoods in and around the Old City, located west of the Tigris River, which divides Mosul into its western and eastern sector.____Salaheddin reported from Baghdad.

Police-reported hate crimes in Canada rose five per cent in 2015: StatsCan-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 13, 2017

OTTAWA — Statistics Canada says hate crimes in Canada rose by five per cent in 2015, with the rise is largely due to an increase in incidents targeting the Muslim population and Arabs or West Asians.In 2015, police reported 1,362 criminal incidents motivated by hate, 67 more than the previous year, according to the data published Tuesday.Of them, 48 per cent were motivated by hatred of a race or ethnicity, 35 per cent were motivated by hatred of a religion, and 11 per cent were hate crimes targeting sexual orientation."The number of hate crimes presented in this release likely undercounts the true extent of hate crime in Canada, as not all crimes are reported to police," Statistics Canada said in a note accompanying Tuesday's data release.The agency did note, however, that in 2015, police services increased outreach to ethnic groups and, in addition, the National Council of Canadian Muslims made efforts to encourage reporting of hate crimes to police.Police-reported hate crimes targeting the Muslim population rose from 99 incidents in 2014 to 159 incidents in 2015, while crimes targeting the Jewish population declined from 213 in 2014 to 178 in 2015.Statistics Canada says eight of 10 provinces reported an increase in the number of police-reported hate crimes from 2014 to 2015.The increase was most pronounced in Alberta, where police reported 193 hate crimes compared with 139 the year before, a rise driven by a higher number of crimes motivated by hatred against the Muslim population, Arab or West Asian populations, black populations and the Jewish population.The agency noted that Alberta reported an overall increase in crime in 2015; police officers from the province have previously said they believe the increase in crime overall is linked to the province's economic downturn.In Ontario, which historically records close to half of the total number of hate crimes in Canada, fewer crimes motivated against the Jewish religion and against the black population saw the overall rate decline by five per cent from 2014.The Canadian Press.

Sandy Hook group dumps Megyn Kelly as event host-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 13, 2017

NEW YORK — An anti-gun violence organization founded by parents of children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School has dumped Megyn Kelly as host of an event in Washington this week because of her plans to broadcast an interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.Kelly said Tuesday that she understands and respects the decision by Sandy Hook Promise to disinvite her as host of its Wednesday gala, but is disappointed. She said reporting on Jones' falsehoods is what journalists are supposed to do.NBC is taking considerable heat on social media for its Father's Day broadcast of Kelly's interview with "Infowars" host Alex Jones, who has questioned whether the killing of 26 people in 2012 at the school in Newtown, Connecticut, was a hoax. The firm JPMorgan Chase has asked that its advertisement not run on the broadcast."Sandy Hook Promise cannot support the decision by Megyn or NBC to give any form of voice or platform to Alex Jones and have asked Megyn Kelly to step down as our Promise Champion Gala host," said Nicole Hockley, co-founder and managing director. "It is our hope that Megyn and NBC reconsider and not broadcast this interview."Hockley, whose 6-year-old son Dylan was killed at Sandy Hook, founded the group with Mark Barden, who lost his 7-year-old son Daniel.Kelly said that she found Jones' suggestion that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax "as personally revolting as every other rational person does."It left me, and many other Americans, asking the very question that prompted this interview: How does Jones, who traffics in these outrageous conspiracy theories, have the respect of the president of the United States and a growing audience of millions?"Trump, she said, has helped elevate Jones with his attention and letting "Infowars" in some White House events, she said."Our goal in sitting down with him was to shine a light, as journalists are supposed to do, on this influential figure and, yes, to discuss the considerable falsehoods he has promoted with near impunity," she said. The interview is the planned centerpiece of her third broadcast of the newsmagazine "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly."The interview has put Kelly, who jumped to NBC from Fox News Channel earlier this year, squarely back in the headlines. She was one of Trump's favourite targets during the presidential campaign because he was annoyed at tough questions she asked him at a Fox-broadcast debate.The New York Daily News put the story on its front page Tuesday, with the headline "Nutwork News."Jones, for his part, has already denounced the interview as "fake news."David Bauder, The Associated Press.
