Thus they have constantly been filling up the measure of their sins; but God’s wrath has overtaken them at last. - Thessalonians 2:14-16

Israel is a person not land

Israel is a person not land

Jacob was renamed Israel. The descendants of Jacob are known as Israelites. Israel is a person not a land.
The term Israelite is the English name for the descendants of the biblical patriarch Jacob in ancient times, which is derived from the Greek Ἰσραηλῖται,[34] which was used to translate the Biblical Hebrew term b’nei yisrael, יִשְׂרָאֵל as either “sons of Israel” or “children of Israel”.[35]
The name Israel first appears in the Hebrew Bible in Genesis 32:29. It refers to the renaming of Jacob, who, according to the Bible, wrestled with an angel, who gave him a blessing and renamed him Israel because he had “striven with God and with men, and have prevailed”.

GOD cursed the Satanic Edomites out of Jerusalem for life. Jesus focused on Jerusalem because it was the most unholy, evil, place on earth… still is today.

Marlon Brando a great and righteous actor made the statement. ” the only movie never made in Hollywood is the true story of the Jews” .

“For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh. But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter; and his praise is not from men, but from God.” – Romans 2:28-29

“I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” Rev. 2.9

“I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.” Rev 3.9

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. – John 8.44

French tightrope walker completes 600-meter walk on slackline in Paris

A French daredevil wowed crowds in the centre of Paris by walking 600 meters on a tightrope between the Eiffel Tower and Trocadero Square.

Nathan Paulin, a famous tightrope artist, relied on a narrow strip of rope just 2.5cm (one inch) wide to keep him safe.

Thousands of people watched him start the walk from the first floor of the tower, 70 metres above the ground.

He then made his way – very carefully – to a theatre roof beside Trocadero Square.

He stopped several times to perform extra stunts for the crowds.

Afterwards, Paulin described the experience as “a bit of a dream”.

Greek PM says climate crisis is with us and cost of ignoring it ‘unimaginable’

Mediterranean nations must lead the way in addressing climate change, the Greek prime minister said, warning that the cost of doing nothing was unimaginable, with mankind possibly struggling to survive beyond the turn of the next century, reports Reuters.

Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, and Spain were ravaged by wildfires and record high temperatures this summer, with scientists warning the region had turned into a “wildfire hotspot”. Germany, Turkey, and China were pounded with devastating floods.

“I no longer want to talk about climate change. I want to talk about the climate crisis, it’s already here,” Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis told Reuters in an interview.

“And in order to address it, we need horizontal policies which essentially permeate every aspect of our economic and our social life.”

A UN climate panel has warned that deadly heatwaves, huge hurricanes, and other freak weather events will only become more severe.

Harvard-educated Mitsotakis, 53, has made climate action a focal point of his administration. Soon after his election in July 2019, he announced a ban on coal-fired power stations from 2028 and recently created a civil protection ministry tasked with dealing with crises.

OPINION: Greed and consumption are why the world is burning

Mitsotakis hosted leaders of nine southern European nations, in the “front line” of climate change, in Athens on Friday, when they called for urgent global action as part of an “Athens declaration” initiated by Mitsotakis.

The UN COP26 climate conference in Glasgow starting on October 31 aims to wring much more ambitious climate action and the money to go with it from countries around the globe.

In a potential worst-case scenario, the climate crisis would represent the “destruction of human civilization as we know it”, Mitsotakis told Reuters.

“We have to be very, very, very clear. This is exactly what is at stake. If the worst-case scenarios materialise, this planet is not going to be hospitable to the human species by the end of this century.

“Here in the Mediterranean, we have almost 6,000 years of civilization behind us but it’s the duty of our generation to make sure that the future generations will continue to live and thrive and prosper.”

The World Meteorological Organisation, a UN agency, has assessed the numbers of disasters driven by climate change have increased fivefold over the past 50 years, killing more than 2 million people and costing $3.64 trillion in total losses.

The cost of the crisis was “unimaginable” on a global scale and even in terms of national economies, Mitsotakis said.

Floods in Greece cost half a billion euros last year, and every crop ravaged by weather extremes could run into hundreds of millions in damages, he said. Coastal erosion from rising sea levels was another challenge as a direct threat to tourism, an area of particular importance to Greece.

The country had reduced its greenhouse gasses by 11 million tonnes since late 2019 by moving away from coal, Mitsotakis said. Greek authorities were also moving “at warp speed” to place flood barriers in forests destroyed by fires this summer.

Mitsotakis faced criticism at the government’s response to the fires this summer, which forced thousands to flee their homes. He apologised for any shortcomings.

“When faced with fires of this intensity, it is very clear that we need to do things differently,” he said. “So we need to learn from our mistakes.”

Man Finds a Surprising Handwritten Note Left in a Shop Wall by a Builder 40 Years Ago

A man found a note left in his shop wall 40 years ago by a builder saying he’d gotten an electric shock working there—written on the back of an electricity safety notice.

Daniel Bodman, 39, was renovating an old building in Devizes, Wiltshire, England, when he discovered the letter written by “Mr Nicholas Poole” in 1986.

Bizarrely, the message was scrawled on the back of a “Treatment of Electric Shock” poster, complete with pictures of how to do CPR.

Daniel was transforming the place into a new showroom for his masonry business Market Town Memorials.

He was in the middle of taking some cladding down when he noticed the folded poster on the wall.

“It makes an interesting little read, and had made us chuckle with what he had [written] it on. It would be interesting to find him,” Daniel said.

“While doing this job, I was electrocuted because I touched two bare wires accidentally,” Mr Nicholas Poole had written.

The full handwritten note read: “This shop ‘Herb Craft’ was fitted by Nick Poole in August 1986 at an hourly rate of £2.00.

”The store walls are in a hell of a state, so god knows what they will be like when you find this.

Why Didn’t Steve Jobs Let His Kids Use iPads?

Epoch Times Photo
By Mariel Otero del Río

How addicted are you to your cellphone? How much time do you spend in front of a screen? Would you let your children do the same? Steve Jobs thought it was not a good idea, so he did not let his children use iPads and iPhones, and technology in general.

In 2010, a New York Times reporter had a conversation that revealed a lot about the life of the founder of Apple. Nick Bilton commented, “Your kids must love the iPad, right?” after the launch of the device. Jobs replied: “They haven’t used it. We limit the amount of technology our children use at home.”

Any special reason? According to Walter Isaacson, the author of the Steve Jobs biography, the family focused more on history or reading, as well as activities that had to do with technology.

Isaacson explained: “Every night Steve insisted on dining at the big kitchen table, talking about books, history, and a variety of other things. Nobody ever took out an iPad or a computer. The kids didn’t seem addicted to the devices.”

It’s Not the Only One

A large number of CEOs and prominent figures of Silicon Valley companies significantly reduce the time their children spend in contact with technology.

For example, Bill Gates did not give his children cellphones until they were 14 years old. In addition, their use was prohibited during lunch, dinner, and before sleeping.

The recommendation of the American Academy of Pediatrics is to limit technology according to the age of the children, since there is a fear that the use of the devices will become compulsive and uncontrolled.

According to the authors of the book “Screen Schooled” and several former employees of technology companies, when devices are used compulsively, it ends creativity and limits social relationships.

What Do They Know That We Don’t?

Indeed, many people who have or had to do with technological development restrict its use at home. A former Google executive, Tristan Harris, even warned of the “tricks” that websites like Facebook or YouTube use to hold our attention without us noticing.

In 2020, the Netflix documentary “The Social Dilemma” caused a furor by revealing how social networks work and make us “addicted.”

There is a phrase that stands out in the film: “There are two industries that call their customers users: illegal drugs and software.”

It seems Steve Jobs saw this coming.

The film describes the addiction and negative impacts of social networks in our daily life, which is closely linked to the devices with which we interact. In addition, testimonials in the film explain how social media companies play with our emotions and behaviors.

What Are the Risks?

Various studies indicate that addiction to screens leads to problems with concentration, vision, sleep, low tolerance for frustration and, in some cases, low self-esteem.

Israeli grandfather says he saved, not kidnapped, grandson in Italy

The grandfather of a six-year-old boy who is the only survivor of an Italian cable car disaster said he was looking out for his grandson’s wellbeing by bringing him to Israel against the will of the boy’s family in Italy, reports Reuters.

Eitan Biran’s parents, younger brother, and 11 other people all died when a gondola plunged to the ground in northern Italy in May. He is now at the centre of a custody battle.

The boy moved in with his paternal aunt, Aya Biran, in northern Italy after the accident. A week ago his maternal grandfather, Shmuel Peleg, picked him up for a planned family trip but they never returned, according to the aunt.

Italian media said Peleg had driven with his grandson across the nearby border to Switzerland and flown on a private jet to Tel Aviv.

“What is good for the boy outweighs my personal interests,” Peleg said when told during an interview on Israel’s Channel 12 that Italian authorities are calling his action kidnapping.

“So I decided that I am saving the boy and bringing him to Israel,” Peleg said during the TV interview that aired on Friday. “I took a car, a KIA. I drove with Eitan. The passports were checked at the embassy in Switzerland. Approved. And we took off in a completely legal manner to Israel.”

The boy’s family in Italy has filed a petition in a Tel Aviv family court for his return. Their Israeli lawyer said the court had set a hearing for Sept. 29. It is required to make a ruling within six weeks.

A legal source has said prosecutors in the northern Italian city of Pavia had opened a kidnapping investigation. The prosecutors’ office declined to comment.

Israeli police have said they had received a complaint that a minor had been kidnapped and flown to Israel, and had questioned an unidentified 58-year-old man on suspicion of involvement.

Asked why he did not wait for an Italian court to make a decision, Peleg said “I must say that I lost faith in the Italian judicial system.”

Peleg’s family, through a public relations firm, said earlier in a statement that the Italian consul in Israel came to Peleg’s house to meet with Eitan.

“The message from the consul was that the foreign ministries are working to try to find a compromise between the families,” according to the statement.

Magistrates are still investigating why the cable car, on a line connecting Stresa on the shores of Lake Maggiore to the nearby Mottarone mountain, plunged to the ground.

ICCIMA head calls on govt. to pursue privatization, lifting sanctions

ICCIMA head calls on govt. to pursue privatization, lifting sanctions – Tehran%20Times

TEHRAN – Head of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture (ICCIMA) has called on the government to support production by pursuing the removal of the U.S. sanction and implementing privatization.

Making the remarks during the 16th ICCIMA board meeting on Sunday, Gholam-Hossein Shafeie warned of the consequences of repeating previous unsuccessful patterns, ICCIMA portal reported.

ICCIMA recommends that the new government purses the lifting of sanctions to attract domestic and foreign investment and enable higher and more sustainable economic growth, while making the economy more competitive by privatizing and handing the management of enterprises to the private sector, Shafeie said.

“If the government bases all its decisions and strategies on creating a favorable business environment, while removing internal and external barriers to production, the economic problems in the country will be solved,” the official stressed.

According to the ICCIMA head, the best solution to current problems is to use all the capacities of the country to increase competitive production and to improve the economy.

“This will mobilize production, create jobs and increase tax revenues, which will improve income distribution and reduce the budget deficit as the main root of inflation,” he said.

“By increasing production, it is possible to pay higher wages and thus improve people’s livelihoods,” Shafeie added.

He further mentioned the need for the vaccination of the workforce and said: “We ask the government, which has done a very good job in importing vaccines, to prioritize production line workers, as the social distance is not possible on many production lines.”

Referring to the gas and electricity issues during the winter, the official called on the government and the relevant authorities to take precautionary measures to prevent any problems for the production units.

Shafeie also mentioned the joining of Iran to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and said: “Iran’s accession to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization was one of the good news that will create great opportunities for us in the future.”

Texas Doctor Who Performed Abortion in Violation of New Law Writes Op-Ed

A Texas doctor who performed an abortion in violation of a new state law and faces the prospect of a private-action lawsuit for $10,000 published an op-ed in The Washington Post on Sunday.

Alan Braid wrote that he had performed abortions in Texas since 1973, the year when the Supreme Court outlawed most state limits on abortion until 22 weeks of pregnancy. The passage of the new Texas law shut down 80 percent of the abortion business at his two clinics, Braid wrote, adding that the situation for him “is 1972 all over again.”

“And that is why, on the morning of Sept. 6, I provided an abortion to a woman who, though still in her first trimester, was beyond the state’s new limit. I acted because I had a duty of care to this patient, as I do for all patients, and because she has a fundamental right to receive this care,” Braid wrote.

Unlike other so-called “fetal heartbeat” bills, the legislation in Texas withstood scrutiny by the Supreme Court because it expressly prohibits the state from enforcing the law. The Texas bill, known as S.B. 8, instead makes it legal for private citizens to sue the people involved in providing the abortion for up to $10,000 each.

Braid’s clinics are represented by the Center for Reproductive Rights in a federal lawsuit challenging S.B. 8.

“I understand that by providing an abortion beyond the new legal limit, I am taking a personal risk, but it’s something I believe in strongly,” Braid wrote. “I have daughters, granddaughters, and nieces. I believe abortion is an essential part of health care.”

While Braid referred to abortion as “health care,” opponents of the procedure view it as the killing of unborn children. As of January this year, an estimated 62.5 million abortions have been performed in the United States since the passage of Roe v. Wade in 1973.

After the Supreme Court declined to take up the challenge to S.B. 8, some Republican-led states began to work on their own versions of a similar bill. Views on abortion are split sharply among political lines, with the vast majority of Democrats for it and Republicans against it.

Braid did not state whether a private action lawsuit was brought against him for performing the abortion and it is unclear if such an action has been filed in Texas. The first such lawsuit will likely become a secondary testing ground for S.B. 8.

Iran’s fuel shipments violate Lebanon’s sovereignty

Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati said Iranian fuel shipments imported by the Hezbollah movement constitute a breach of Lebanon’s sovereignty, according to comments published by his office, reports Reuters.

“The violation of Lebanon’s sovereignty makes me sad,” Mikati told CNN in an interview, his office said in a posting on Twitter.

He added: “But I’m not concerned that sanctions can be imposed” on Lebanon “because the operation was carried out without the involvement of the Lebanese government.”

The Tehran-aligned group on Thursday began bringing tanker trucks carrying fuel from Iran, a move it says should ease a crippling energy crisis in Lebanon. A tanker ship carried the fuel to Syria and from there it crossed into Lebanon. Both Syria and Iran are under US sanctions.

Late on Friday, the Lebanese broadcaster LBCI said that a new group of tankers carrying Iranian fuel entered Lebanon through the Hermel area.

More Than 20 Russian Airstrikes Hit Greater Idlib As Militants Continue To Launch Attacks (Videos, Photos)

On September 18, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) carried out more than 23 airstrikes on militants’ positions in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the airstrikes took place as follows:

  • Ten airstrikes targeted the outskirts of the towns of Baluon and Mashoun in the southern countryside of Idlib.
  • Four airstrikes targeted the town of al-Bara in the southern countryside of Idlib.
  • Four airstrikes targeted the town of al-Kindah in the western countryside of Idlib.
  • Five airstrikes targeted the towns of Kabani, al-Khudur and Barza in the northern countryside of Lattakia.

In the last few months, Greater Idlib militants stepped up their attacks in violation of the 5 March 2020 ceasefire agreement forcing the VKS to intensify its combat operations in the region.

One of the most recent attacks was carried out by Ansar al-Islam, a terrorist group allied to al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS). The attack, which was carried out with mortars and recoilless rifles, targeted positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the northwestern countryside of Hama.

HTS and its allies appear to be unwilling to respect the ceasefire in Greater Idlib. This may force the SAA and its allies to launch a ground operation in the region very soon. Such an operation may lead to a confrontation with the Turkish military that maintains a large presence in the region.

Yemen’s Houthis execute nine men for involvement in Samad death

Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi movement said on Saturday that authorities had executed nine men who were convicted of involvement in the 2018 killing of Saleh al-Samad, then the armed group’s top civilian leader, reports Reuters.

Samad, who held the post of president in the Houthi-controlled administration which runs most of northern Yemen, was killed in April 2018 by a Saudi-led coalition airstrike in the port city of Hudaydah on Yemen’s west coast.

He was the most senior official to be killed by the coalition in the years-long war in which the Houthis are fighting forces loyal to the internationally-recognised government based in the southern port city of Aden.

The government is backed by a Saudi-led coalition which has received support from Western powers. Saudi Arabia and its mostly Gulf Arab allies allege the Houthis are proxies for their arch-rival Iran, something the group and Tehran deny.

Houthi authorities said the nine men were charged and convicted for their involvement in the killing of Samad, including spying and sharing sensitive information with the Saudi-led coalition.

The Houthis said the execution by firing squad was witnessed by “masses”, including blood relatives and Houthi leaders in the capital Sanaa, which they control.

Chinese Regime’s Forced Organ Harvesting Could Spread to Other Countries, NGO Director Warns

The communist regime in China would export its horrific practice of forced organ harvesting once it was able to tear down ethical standards in the transplant industry established by the West, warned Dr. Torsten Trey.

Trey, founder and executive director of Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH), sounded the warning during a recent interview with EpochTV’s “Crossroads” program. He was commenting on how the Chinese regime has for decades persecuted prisoners of conscience, in order to drive its industrial-scale operations to supply harvested organs to the transplant market.

Given China’s ambitions to dominate many industries, Trey said that Beijing has also sought to become the leader in the transplant sector.

“In Western countries, we follow ethical standards for the benefit of the patient. There is a purpose of it, that comes with waiting time,” he said. “It is based on free voluntary consent as a foundation to donate organs.”

He said, “This concept of free voluntary consent is basically destroyed in the concept of forced organ harvesting.”

In other words, he said that the Chinese regime sees Western medical standards as a threat to its practice of forced organ harvesting.

“So China is highly interested in tearing down this [Western] system to basically make forced organ harvesting the common standard in transplant medicine,” he added.

China has been one of the top destinations for transplant tourism, as Chinese hospitals offer organ transplants with very short waiting times while claiming that their organs originate from the country’s voluntary donation system. Beijing claims it has not sourced organs from executed prisoners since 2015.

However, a London-based people’s tribunal refuted the CCP’s claim in a 2019 report. It concluded that the stated-sanctioned practice of forced organ harvesting was happening on a “significant scale” in China, with Falun Gong practitioners being the main source of organs.

Adherents of Falun Gong, a spiritual exercise also known as Falun Dafa, have been the targets of persecution by the Chinese regime since 1999.

Allegations of forced organ harvesting from detained Falun Gong adherents first emerged in 2006.

Once China became the leading voice in the transplant sector, it would set “new standards” in the transplant field, Trey said.

At that time, Trey warned Beijing would be “unrestricted in its pursuit to eradicate” prisoners of conscience without international scrutiny or criticism.

Trey said he had the chance to speak to several people who were nearly victims of China’s forced organ harvesting in recent years.

Some said they repeatedly received blood tests while in detention in China, according to Trey. One former detainee said the police admitted to him that his organs could be harvested when he was asked to have a blood test.

What’s more, Trey said he has also seen reports of missing organs from the bodies of dead detainees in China.

In 2016, the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed H.Res.343, which also called for an end to the Chinese regime’s practice of organ harvesting.

In March, new legislation was introduced in both the Senate (S.602) and the House (H.R.1592) to combat forced organ harvesting and human trafficking. If approved, it would authorize the U.S. government to deny or revoke passports for people who engage in the illegal purchase of organs. It would also prohibit the U.S. export of organ transplant surgery devices to foreign entities associated with the crime.

There has been international support calling for China to end its practice of forced organ harvesting. Trey said his organization organized a global petition for six years ending in 2018, collecting more than 3 million signatures and calling on the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to help end the practice in China.

“Now we want to have the United Nations and independent investigators to go on the ground [in China], to go into these camps in China” to investigate, Trey said.

Iran’s petchem, fuel sales surge in shadow of oil sale restrictions

Iran’s petchem, fuel sales surge in shadow of oil sale restrictions – Tehran%20Times

TEHRAN – Iran’s exports of fuel and petrochemical exports have surged in recent years as the re-imposition of the U.S. sanctions on the country’s oil industry curbed crude sales, the Daily Star reported.

The situation has left Iran in a good position to be able to expand trade in Asia and Europe rapidly, if the sanctions are removed, the report said quoting trade sources and officials.

The United States imposed sanctions on Iran’s oil and gas industry in 2018 to choke off the Islamic Republic’s main source of revenues. The sanctions significantly declined crude exports but not sales of fuel and petrochemicals.

Iran exported petrochemicals and petroleum products worth almost $20 billion in 2020, twice the value of its crude exports, oil ministry and central bank figures show. The government said in April they were its main source of revenues.

“The world is vast and the ways of evading sanctions are endless,” Hamid Hosseini, board member of Iran’s Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Products Exporters’ Union in Tehran, told Reuters. Competitive prices and Iran’s location, close to major shipping lanes, made its products attractive, he said.

There are also many more buyers of refined products than importers with refineries configured to process Iranian crude.

In addition, Iran exports some fuel by trucks to its neighbors, which involve small transactions that are tough for the U.S. Treasury to detect.

Tehran has been in talks since April to revive its nuclear pact with six world powers, after the United States under President Donald Trump withdrew from the deal in 2018 and ratcheted up sanctions. Iran says it will only comply with the pact if U.S. sanctions are scrapped.

Meanwhile, the Islamic Republic has completely prepared itself to boost its oil production if the measures are eased. While most of the world slashed refinery throughput during the COVID-19 pandemic, Iranian gasoline exports rose 600 percent year on year in 2020 to eight million tons, or 180,000 barrels per day (bpd), the customs administration said. This is while as recently as 2018, Iran had been importing gasoline.

Iran’s revenues from gasoline exports were an estimated $3 billion in 2020, Hosseini said.

Iranian oil production is now about 2.5 million bpd, with around two million bpd allocated to domestic refineries and roughly 500,000 bpd to exports, a source close to the oil ministry said, adding that Iran could boost crude output by two million bpd in two to three months if sanctions were lifted.

‘I Felt Like I Was Seeing Kindred Souls,’ Says Former Dance Educator

HOUSTON, Texas—Angela Hayes was full of praise after she attended the classical Chinese dance and music performance, Shen Yun Performing Arts, at the Wortham Center Brown Theater in Houston, Texas, on Sept. 18.

Hayes, with nearly 30 years as a dance educator in a Texas public school and then as the director of a performing arts group, said Shen Yun was spectacular.

“I not only appreciated the beautiful movement but the artistry that goes into the production,” she said. Hayes loved how the stories flowed from depicting traditional culture to more recent events in China.

Traditional Chinese culture was brought to the brink of extinction after the Chinese Communist Party came to power in 1949. New York-based Shen Yun aims to present “China before Communism” and revive traditional Chinese culture through dance and music. It also presents dances that illustrate the present-day persecution of the ancient Chinese spiritual group Falun Dafa, whose beliefs reach way back to the beginning of time.

“The dance is spectacular. They’re beautifully trained, you can tell that … everything that they were doing was lovely,” Hayes said. “There was lovely attention to detail. [It] was just an all-around fabulous performance.”

The former dance educator trained in ballet remarked how fluid, effortless, and synchronized, dancers’ movements were. “It’s part of their breath, it’s part of their movement, there is no disconnect,” she said. “It’s lovely to watch.”

Hayes was very impressed by the way Shen Yun coordinated the performance.

It inspires us to think beautiful thoughts, it inspired us to think higher.

— Angela Hayes

“I loved the flow of the soloist to the ensemble, back and forth. The storytelling was lovely … it was very sweet and honest, and it was inspirational.

“There was a message,” she added. “It inspires us to think beautiful thoughts, it inspired us to think higher. [We should go] beyond modern times and think of the beauty of the world.

“I feel the spirituality came very much through. I saw the beauty of the country, dances, and the legends. That’s what really touched my heart.

“I felt like I was seeing kindred souls—because I was an artist myself. I was seeing artists on stages, I was seeing them in the moments of joy, in the moments of sadness. I just love the way they spoke to me,” she said.

The destruction of traditional Chinese culture by the Chinese Communist Party saddened Hayes.

“As very conservative persons here in the United States, we are struggling. We are in the same kind of spiritual war right now. One of the messages … throughout, was to look past these modern thoughts, and to go back to the divine, and to think about what is true artistry … what beauty is in movement, what beauty is in the experience of song and [musicality].”

Many of the pieces utilize Shen Yun’s patented technology that brings its animated digital backdrop to life. “I got very fascinated by the screen, the technology of the screen, and how it was integrated, then the cleverness of the way it was staged. It was very beautiful to watch and I was so impressed to see that they actually patented the technology … the live-action with the video.”

With the experienced eye of a dancer, Hayes extolled Shen Yun’s costumes—the spectacular, vibrant colors—and the way color was used to create experiences throughout the performance.

Yemen: protests in Taiz over currency crisis

Yemenis staged a protest in the southern city of Taiz on Saturday to express their frustration after a plunge in the local currency which led to a surge in prices and shops close.

The angry protesters chanted slogans calling for urgent government intervention to stop the currency’s collapse and to provide oil derivatives and basic materials.

Through their chants, they held the Yemeni government, the “Southern Transitional Council”, the Arab coalition, and the “Houthis” group responsible for the deterioration of the currency.

The Taiz City Traders’ Confederation (a union entity), said in a brief statement: “They will carry out a 4-hour strike on Saturday.”

READ: 18,000 Yemen civilians killed, wounded in air strikes since 2015

The tradesmen vowed to “continue to escalate and strike if their demands are not met, to put an end to the collapse of the national currency, open the siege on the city, and find real solutions to stop the deterioration of the economy.”

The Yemeni authorities did not issue an immediate comment, even about the protests and the partial strike announced by traders in Taiz.

In recent days, Yemenis exchanged one US dollar for more than 1,100 Yemeni rials. At the beginning of 2015, one US dollar was traded for 215 Yemeni rials.

For days, the governorates of Aden, Hadhramaut, and Taiz have been witnessing angry protests denouncing the deterioration of services and the significant rise in food prices due to the unprecedented deterioration in the history of the Yemeni rial.

Human rights and humanitarian organisations accuse the “Houthis” of imposing a siege on the center of Taiz governorate (which is under government control) since the outbreak of the conflict in 2015, and of preventing humanitarian relief convoys from reaching the population and those affected by the war, which the group denies.

For nearly seven years, Yemen has been witnessing a war that has claimed 233,000 lives, and 80 percent of the population of about 30 million people has become dependent on aid to survive.

Yemen on Thursday called on the Gulf states to organise an urgent conference to support the country’s deteriorating economy.

Yemen has been beset by violence and chaos since 2014, when Houthis overran much of the country, including the capital, Sanaa.

The crisis escalated in 2015 when a Saudi-led coalition launched a devastating air campaign aimed at rolling back Houthi territorial gains.

According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the conflict has claimed more than 233,000 lives.

Are the Barbaric Lockdowns in Australia Connected to Chinese Expansion in South East Asia?

Recently, a new treaty emerged between Australia, the US and the UK, in which the latter two pledged extensive military cooperation to protect Australia from China’s imminent aggression. However, is Australia even relevant to the equation anymore? Why didn’t they choose Japan or even India?

Australia’s biggest relevance to the West (in terms of countering China) is its location. But the new barbaric lockdowns in Australia have proved that as a people, as a society, the nation is toast, and is headed for economic collapse if the lockdowns (and the mandatory vaccinations) persist. And their participation in any war stands to be greatly hindered in every possible way. Or maybe that’s how the Overlords want it. 

Since the new Imperial China is also a Phoenician project as was Australia (the British Empire), we have to be open to the fact that the Phoenicians may be substituting one for the other. To quote,

Word from at least one Chinese embassy is that Fiji will be owned and operated by the Chinese government by 2025 and Australia and its people by 2040. The Australian people don’t give a damn and by the time they wake up (if they ever do) there’ll be nothing left to wake up to. Chinese control of Australia and its people may come earlier that 2040.

Aussies will be the first people ever to give away the soil under their feet together with their and their descendants’ lives without a shot being fired or money changing hands – well not into their hands anyway.

Australia a Concealed Colony but soon to be a Chinese Colony.

This Australian Prime Minister was said to be an active Chinese spy. When it became obvious his cover could be blown, he decided to take a swim at a beach….and then disappeared. Since no body was ever found, some have theorized that a Chinese submarine was awaiting him for pickup. This was in 1967. Imagine the level of Chinese infiltration right now.

So now it makes sense why USA would be transferring sensitive technology to Australia (It is destined to fall into Chinese hands at some point).

Just to be clear, the USA (and the Phoenicians who run that project) have no interest in countering their Chinese project. If they did,

  • Amazon would not be allowed to sell Chinese products to Americans.
  • There would be import tariffs on Chinese goods, making retailers like Walmart® and Cosco® go bankrupt.
  • China’s genocide of the Uyghurs would be countered in International courts.

But most readers may not be able to mentally picture that happening.

As for Australia, it sucks to be on the wrong side of history. But let’s take a quick look at what got them there. Was it a sense of false pride, culture worship and false bravado? Which is rather odd, given the fact that they have a fraction of the rights and freedoms of rural Americans, who also live in a vast countryside. Yet rural Americans have managed to cling onto their dwindling freedoms with some more success. Whereas in Australia, words such as “seccession” or “civil war” are unheard of.

Heavy drinking and driving 4x4s does not make people macho. Neither does marching into wars oceans away, to serve as gunfodder for their Phoenician overlords. To quote,

From an Australian population of around four and a half million, enlistments in the army and navy numbered 416,809, a total that represents one-half of the men of military age in Australia at that time  [World War I]. Altogether, 60,000 Australians were killed and 167,000 were injured, a higher toll proportionately than was suffered by any other British Empire country.

There is a point in which worshipping the culture/country/society/history you were born into (without a choice) becomes suffocating. At a further point, it can make you brain dead. This is exactly what happened here.

Australian and New Zealand Forces landing at Gallipoli in World War I. Their “peaceful” evacuation was arranged as quick as they came, after it became clear they had lost.

Even the ill-equipped and internally sabotaged Turks in World War I found Australians/New Zealanders rather soft, and happily butchered a lot of them. Australians and New Zealanders were sent to retake the region of historical Troy for their Phoenician overlords but ended up in such an epic disaster that the Powers That Be decided to evacuate and leave that region to Turkey. You can read more about the Gallipoli Campaign in my book. It never occurred to these “brave” men to ask why they were fighting this war.

Currently, Australians are being locked up like a bunch of juvenile criminals and are being blackmailed and gaslighted into taking vaccines. They are not allowed to travel, internally or externally. But wait, wasn’t that how it the nation was founded? In a rather ironic development, an island detention center built for jailing illegal immigrants is now being used to “quarantine” Australian nationals!

It is hard to believe that imbeciles who can be locked up in their homes are being expected to stand up to a foreign army. But of course, they could still be used as props in a fake conflict.

Women working in Kabul municipality told not to return by Taliban

Female municipal employees in Kabul have been ordered to stay at home. The interim mayor of the Afghan capital, told reporters on Sunday that only women ‘who could not be replaced by men’ would be allowed to stay in post.

The move came a day after girls were barred from entering secondary schools and the ministry for women’s affairs was renamed the Ministry for Vice and Virtue.

Namony told reporters that a ‘final decision’ about female employees in Kabul municipal departments had yet to be made. He added that they would draw their salaries in the meantime.

Before the Taliban overran Kabul last month, Namony added, just under one-third the city’s around 3,000 city employees were women.

Epoch TV Review: Is Your Child Addicted to Their Phone?

Commentary

Every generation worries about the upcoming youth, but does the age of smartphones and digital addiction pose a more serious threat than ever before? In an episode of NTD’s “The Nation Speaks,” host Cindy Drukier interviews teacher and author Jeremy Adams, as well as psychologist Hilarie Cash, to answer this question.

It has only been 14 years since we’ve had computers in our pockets that are available every moment of our lives. In his book “Hallowed Out: A Warning about America’s Next Generation,” Jeremy Adams, a civics teacher of 24 years, brings awareness to what he is seeing in the classroom and how he believes the younger generation is negatively affected by technology.

Adams says when you work in the classroom, you get to know kids and you notice if there are troubling trends. He believes the most disturbing thing about kids today is the value system they are embracing. The way they look at their country, the way they spend their time, and the values they hold are not helping them live purposeful and meaningful lives. In fact, they are hindering them.

Being a civics teacher, Adams says he worries about the American experiment.

“America is not like other countries. We can’t have a single lost generation that doesn’t understand what it means to be an American and what those values are and how you perpetuate the American experiment,” he says.

He is worried about the values that have emerged in young people over the past 10 years. These include the extent to which young Americans live their lives completely untethered to adult values, influences, or role models.

Adams says that although it doesn’t matter to him whether the youth are religious or not, he is bothered that young people don’t seem to know anything about religion.

Other troubling trends are that the younger generation is extremely unpatriotic, they don’t have the desire for relationships, marriage, or family, and they are radically individualistic.

He says that when you think about the things that make life enchanting and grand, you think of friendships, love, learning, and going out and seeing and doing things. Yet today’s youth are lonely and isolated.

Adams stresses how unhappy this generation is, citing rising suicide rates.

“It is shocking,” he says.

He was worried about these things prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, but now these problems have been amplified and accelerated.

Kids today don’t go out and socialize, they don’t have meals with their parents, and they often spend 9 to 10 hours a day on their phone.

Adams says kids post-COVID-19 are zombies in the classroom and don’t know how to engage in academic and social environments.

Adams believes the reason for much of this falls on the adult generation. He says that we have given young people freedom but haven’t stepped forward and given them the values, knowledge, or insight needed to use that freedom well. If adults give youth the freedom to do whatever they want, we have to also teach them that freedom allows them to commit to what is important and meaningful. When we fail to do that, we are left with a generation that sees freedom as tantamount to indulgence or licentiousness, and doesn’t connect it to important things.

Being a parent, spouse, teacher, or person of faith, is hard. It may be the hardest thing a person does, but it will also likely be the most meaningful. Youth today often aren’t able to make the connection between struggle and purpose.

Acknowledging that high expectations usually come from adults, Adams points out that the parent generation, in our zeal to be compassionate and empathetic, have actually let our youth down. Being kind is a good thing, but it should help students feel secure so they can achieve good things.

Now in schools, teachers are also friends, counselors, and often act as parents to their students.

Teachers today need to understand that compassion and empathy should serve youth in a way that prepares them to show up, study, work hard, and have success. Adams says many teachers think they’re being compassionate by giving students a diploma without making them learn anything.

Any form of success requires diligence, knowledge, and skill. Robbing young people of what they need to stand tall in the world and achieve what they want in their lives is not kind.

Thankfully, Adams does believe there is still time to turn the situation around. He says we all want to do better. Young people know they are addicted to their phones and need to live life more. The adults know better and know they need to do things like insist on family time, church, and community. He says parents and teachers need to start “adulting” again, which means putting ourselves in the physical, intellectual, and moral spaces of young people. Awareness is the key to breaking the phone addiction, because once we are aware, we can intervene.

Teacher Warns of Troubled Next Generation; Tackling Digital Addiction | The Nation Speaks [Full Episode]

Watch the full episode here.

To learn more about how bad the digital addiction in our youth is and what can be done about it, Drukier interviews psychologist Hilarie Cash, co-founder of reSTART: Internet Addiction Recovery Program.

Cash, who has been seeing addicted patients for over 25 years, says the addiction problem has been growing steadily as technology has entered everyone’s lives. The software is designed to be addictive, and kids are now exposed to technology from early ages, which affects their development.

Cash says there are tell-tale signs if there is an addiction problem. One of the disorders is called “Gaming Disorder,” which often happens to people who become addicted to video games. It can be recognized when gaming begins to take over a person’s life: they no longer have control over how much they use it, they lose interest in other things, and they continue with their behavior despite negative consequences.

Cash says that grades going down, not getting enough sleep or exercise, not having many friends or offline activities, or fighting with family about technology-use rules, are all indicators that there is a problem.

Cash says technology affects brain development in young children. Today, many parents are handing devices to their babies, which has never been the case in past generations. This impacts social development substantially, because a person doesn’t develop good social skills unless they are actually interacting socially with other people.

Cash also explains the attachment issues that result from being exposed to too much technology. A child needs to be attached to their caregivers, but if the caregivers are on their devices too much, or putting the kids on devices to keep them distracted, this affects the attachment a child develops with their caregiver, which in turn affects mental health later on down the road.

She says that from ages 13 to 20, many have intimacy disorders, not having the skills and confidence to initiate, develop, and maintain emotionally intimate relationships.

Sexuality is also impacted because there is a blending of activities online, with many users looking at pornography, gambling, gaming, and social media all at the same time.

On top of this, there are physical problems, such as sleep deprivation, inadequate exercise, and poor diet.

In regards to social development, there is a lack of skill in communication, as well as attention problems.

Technology gives us immediate gratification, which negatively affects academic work by not having the ability to stay focused, persevere to get projects done, and look forward to getting a good grade.

So what can we do? Cash says there are apps that help at least monitor phone use, and these can be helpful if a person is actually motivated to make changes.

She recommends that parents don’t give smartphones to their children before high school. The software parents can put on phones to monitor kids is easy for smart kids to get around. She says to make sure kids don’t have smartphones until they have developed a well-rounded life and can sustain that once they get a smartphone.

Cash also says it is wise to have boundaries around phone and screen time, such as checking your phone at certain times and otherwise leaving it off, and making sure times at home are intentional and not surrounded by screen time and devices. Make sure kids are getting time outdoors, exercising, doing their chores, having down time, and in-person social time.

Cash says the key is to focus on giving your kids the proper rules and guidance so they can live a well-rounded life.

Many Nazis went to Australia after World War II.

Reportedly, the Sydney area has a major child abuse ring, made up of Nazis, Catholics, policemen, academics, politicians, the CIA and others.

Thousands of Nazi war criminals were knowingly offered asylum in Australia.

This is documented in the book, Sanctuary! Nazi Fugitives in Australia and various newspaper articles.

James Corbett video. His point is, we know that the official story of 911 is a lie, that we can agree upon so it is a mistake to get bogged down arguing about the finer details of the operation and he applies the same reasoning regarding Covid. We know that the whole thing is a scam being used to press an agenda of technocratic tyranny and social control and we should focus on opposing that agenda rather than debating whether viruses are real etc.

PEDOPHILE RING EXPOSED; AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT MINISTER AND OTHER TOP PEOPLE ACCUSED


“The abuse was orchestrated by a former Whitlam Government Education Minister Kim Edward Beazley, a police commissioner, an Australian sporting icon, a Sydney University lecturer and a prominent screen actor.”

The top Nazis were pedophiles and many Nazis went to Australia after World War II.

Reportedly, the Sydney area has a major paedophile ring, made up of Nazis, Catholics, policemen, academics, politicians, the CIA and others.

Thousands of Nazi war criminals were knowingly offered asylum in Australia.

This is documented in the book, Sanctuary! Nazi Fugitives in Australia and various newspaper articles.


 
Australian Nazis. The ring which abused Fiona included police officers, psychiatrists, biochemists, psychologists, actors, writers, politicians, university lecturers and medical doctors, including a local Engadine GP named Doctor Mark.”

Fiona Barnett‘s family, who had Nazi connections, moved to Australia.

A 1951 marriage certificate records that Fiona’s grandmother Helena married a Nazi called  Peter Holowczak in Australia.
Peter Holowczak sexually assaulted Fiona from her earliest years until age 12.

Peter used to entertain young Fiona with stories about the ‘olden days’ in Poland when he killed Jews for a living in a death camp.


Peter and Helena often took Fiona to be sexually abused by members of the Nazi community who had settled in an area south of Sydney which ran from the Sutherland Shire to Wollongong.

These Nazis “practised the mystery religion that underpinned Nazism.”



Peter and Helena Holowczak gave Fiona over to a national child sex trafficking ring when she was preschool age.

The ring included police officers, psychiatrists, biochemists, psychologists, actors, writers, politicians, university lecturers and medical doctors, including a local Engadine GP named Doctor Mark.


The CIA’s John Gittinger. It is the security services which protect the pedophile rings. The CIA used child abuse and Satanism to control governments.

The network also involved former CIA and U.S. military psychologist Dr John W. Gittinger, the developer of the Personality Assessment System.

Dr. John Gittinger raped and abused Fiona.

This child trafficking ring also engaged in other crimes including gun and drug trafficking.


Fiona witnessed child sex trafficking between Sydney, Wollongong, Bathurst, and Canberra.

And in many of the national parks located between Sydney and Wollongong.



Fiona witnessed multiple acts of child abduction, drugging, child sexual assault, torture and murder.

Members of the paedophile ring were sexually aroused by necrophilia, bestiality and sadism.

The ring also contained a large number of female perpetrators.



At age of 15 years, Fiona witnessed the wife of an Engadine police officer lure a 15-year-old boy into her car at Cronulla Beach.

The boy was murdered.


Alleged crime scene: Garrawarra Cemetery near Waterfall.

At age eight years, Fiona suffocated while being abused.

She lost consciousness and awoke in the Sutherland Hospital.

A female nurse told her that her mother was present.

It was not her mother. It was the Engadine policeman’s wife.

Dr Mark got the hospital staff to release Fiona into his care.


Bathurst car race 1985

In 1985, Fiona witnessed approximately 10 children raped and murdered in Bathurst, during the weekend of the Bathurst car race.


Some of these children were victims of kidnappings.

Other children were born unregistered so that they could be used as sex slaves.


Beazley

“The abuse was orchestrated by a former Whitlam Government Education Minister Kim Beazley, a police commissioner, an Australian sporting icon, a Sydney University lecturer and a prominent screen actor.”

The prominent screen actor raped Fiona in front of a large crowd that included numerous priests and police.

From the age of 16 years Fiona began disclosing the abuse to health professionals.

None of them reported the allegations to the police.

Fiona feared reporting the abuse to the New South Wales police because policemen were among the perpetrators.

Fiona had witnessed people being tortured and murdered for disclosing – or for trying to leave – the paedophile ring.


Bathhurst, near Sydney.

In 2008, there was  publicity surrounding abuse at the private Catholic boarding school Saint Stanislaus College in Bathurst, NSW.

After reading this in the Herald Sun (August 27, 2008) Fiona felt it would be safe to report her experiences to the New South Wales (NSW) police and be taken seriously.

Fiona contacted the NSW police and the detective in charge of the St Stanislaus, Bathurst case, Justin Hadley.

Fiona briefly described to Hadley the crimes she had witnessed in 1985 in the Bathurst City Hall and he asked her to go to her local police station.

Tweed Heads police refused to take Fiona’s formal statement.

They mocked her witness testimony, and sent me home.

She never heard from them again about this matter.


Tor Nielson

Tor Nielsen had provided similar information to the NSW Police.

Nielsen reported witnessing 60 children being raped in the same Bathurst location Fiona had named.

Nielson also noted that St Stanislaus College has accommodated the NSW police during the Bathurst car races for many decades.

Tor Nielsen’s testimony was detailed on his website ‘The Catholic Cover-up’.

The Catholic Church forced him to to remove the site just prior to the announcement of the current Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

Blood tests revealed that Nielsen was drugged with a substance that induced psychosis.

Nielsen alleges that the drugs were administered by corrupt NSW health practitioners.

The NSW Director of Public Prosecutions dropped the charges against St Stanislaus’ staff and priests.

Maltese children sent to ‘child abuse’ children’s homes in Australia.(State Library of Western Australia, The Battye Library 005086D.) (310 Maltese child migrants were sent to Australia?)

Multiple victims then came forward.

The authorities were forced to bring charges against certain St Stanislaus staff.

However, Tor Nielsen’s lawyer mysteriously fell out of an 18-story window after Nielson publicly exposed the Bathurst paedophile ring.

Lawyer Frederick Jordon Chambers, a former St Stanislaus student, was due to testify at one of the College’s paedophile trials.

Before he could appear, he was found dead.


St Stanislaus College, Bathurst 

Fiona wrote to the NSW police minister and to the NSW police commissioner.

The police commissioner essentially dismissed her complaint.

This is in spite of the fact that the testimony of Tor Nielsen and Fiona tallied with other reports of victims abused at Engadine BoysTown and Bathurst.

In her letters to the NSW police minister and commissioner, Fiona requested that her witness testimony be written down and supplied to the taskforce assigned to investigate the Engadine BoysTown paedophile ring.

Boys Town Engadine, re-named Dunlea Centre

In 2013, Fiona tried to contact  Justin Hadley, the Bathurst detective in charge of the St Stanislaus operation.

Hadley’s colleague told Fiona that it was too late for her information to be provided to police or to benefit the Bathurst victims. 

Fiona left a message for Hadley to contact her, but he never did.


Alleged crime scene: St John Bosco Catholic Church, adjacent to Engadine BoysTown

Following Fiona’s publication of her first article regarding a northern NSW paedophile ring, she received several threats. 



Wollongong City Council was referred to in the Wood Royal Commission investigation into the NSW Police Service.

 Two former Wollongong Lord Mayors, Tony Bevan and Frank Arkell, reportedly ran a paedophile ring in the 1960s to 1990s. 

The ring involved child sex trafficking between Wollongong and Sydney.

This was the same child trafficking ring that Fiona witnessed as a child.

Both mayors were ritually murdered.

Israeli forces capture last 2 escaped Palestinian prisoners in Jenin

Israeli forces have recaptured the last two escaped Palestinian prisoners following last week’s jailbreak from a high-security prison, Israeli police said on Saturday, reports Anadolu Agency.

In a statement, the police said that the two Palestinians Iham Kamamji and Monadel Infiat were captured in the city of Jenin.

“The house where the two fugitives were staying was detected by the intelligence given by Israel’s internal security service, Shin-Bet, and they were arrested by the Israeli forces without showing any resistance,” the statement added.

Six Palestinian inmates tunneled out of the high-security Gilboa Prison in northern Israel on September 6. Israeli forces managed to capture four of them after a large-scale manhunt.

There are around 4,850 Palestinian detainees in Israeli prisons, including 41 women, 225 children, and 540 “administrative detainees,” according to observers.

U.S foreign policy suffering from hypocrisy: professor

U.S foreign policy suffering from hypocrisy: professor – Tehran%20Times

TEHRAN – Arshin Adib-Moghaddam, a London-based professor, says that the U.S foreign policy suffers from hypocrisy.

“The hypocrisy in the discourse is primarily a problem for U.S. foreign policy itself, as the leaders of the country are seen to be caught up in their own double standards,” Professor Adib Moghaddam tells the Tehran%20Times.

The professor in global thought and comparative philosophies at SOAS also says, “human rights are absolute” and “we don’t need the U.S. state or anyone else to set the standards for human rights violations.” 
He adds, “Human dignity, freedom, democracy, pluralism, tolerance are innate human traits with which we are born.”

Recently, U.S. President Joe Biden directed a declassification of certain documents related to the Sept. 11 attacks in a supportive gesture to the families of victims who have long sought a possible involvement of the Saudi Kingdom in the attacks.

For twenty years the U.S. has prevented revealing information about possible Saudi Arabia’s link to the Sept. 11 attacks. Moreover, America prefers not to raise human rights in talks with Saudi authorities, while they spare no efforts to condemn countries such as Russia, China, and Iran for allegations of human rights violations.

Such an approach has raised questions about Washington’s foreign policy as American authorities turn a blind eye to their own values like democracy, liberty and human rights.

“The United States isn’t the only country that uses fake values to further its foreign policies and fails, but it has probably the most disastrous failing rate in recent history,” Adib Moghaddam argues.
Following is the text of the interview:

Q: How do you see the impact of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan on Biden’s popularity and position in America? Some polls talk about a decline in Biden’s popularity. As well, some Democrats slam the modality of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.

A: In general, the electorate in the United States is rather agnostic about foreign policy issues, as there is a lack of deeper knowledge about the world at the heart of U.S. society. Ultimately, Biden is a cautious president which is both due to the excesses of the Trump presidency and the disasters it brought about including the storming of the Capitol and a changed world order that demands a general acknowledgment that U.S. hegemony has been seriously constrained. I have analyzed this decline in my most recent study “What is Iran?”

Q: To what extent does the American public care about foreign policy? For example, escalation over Iran’s nuclear program?

A: Mostly, they really don’t care, also because the political culture in the United States is geared to domestic, even local issues rather than international affairs. Iran is enmeshed in a problematic “Middle Eastern” narrative with Orientalist undertones as Edward Said rightly pointed out over four decades ago. There are many bright intellects in the country, of course, and they would largely confirm my assessment about the relative ignorance of the mainstream in the United States, about specific foreign policy issues such as Iran.

Q: Biden has ordered the declassification of documents related to the Sept. 11 attacks in response to calls from the family of victims for revealing the whole truth. Can it help Biden restore public confidence? How far may the U.S. administration go in telling the truth in this regard?

A: In democracies, states are forced to react to the demands of civil societies. This is an immensely helpful factor in ensuring a degree of “good governance” and for holding state officials accountable. This is one of the main differences to authoritarian systems, where the ruling elite rule almost arbitrarily and where they hover above the law. The declassification must be seen within that larger dialectic between U.S. civil society and the state.

Q: The U.S. is used to blame its foes for human rights violations while turning a blind eye to what Saudi Arabia and its other allies commit. How do you read this behavior?

A: Human rights are absolute. We don’t need the U.S. state or anyone else to set the standards for human rights violations. The hypocrisy in the discourse is primarily a problem for U.S. foreign policy itself, as the leaders of the country are seen to be caught up in their own double standards.

Q: Do you think that successive U.S. administrations have been successful in balancing America’s interests with its fundamental values, at least in foreign policy areas?

A: The United States isn’t the only country that uses fake values to further its foreign policies and fails, but it has probably the most disastrous failing rate in recent history. Human dignity, freedom, democracy, pluralism, tolerance are innate human traits with which we are born. History has shown and intellectuals have demonstrated that any system acting against these human traits will fail, both in terms of its domestic politics and international relations.

Saudis pursue Washington’s goals in talks with Iran

Saudis pursue Washington’s goals in talks with Iran – Tehran%20Times

It is not an easy task to start a new relationship between Iran and Saudi Arabia, though in politics everything is possible.

The two states have been barricading behind their political doctrine differences. However, they are trying! Until today, they have finished three rounds of talks in an attempt to restore diplomatic ties and put ground roles to enhance bilateral relationships. But it seems that the fourth session of discussions is facing difficulties.

The diplomatic relationship between Tehran and Riyadh was cut off in early 2016 after the attack on the Saudi embassy in Tehran. This has led to complications in the relations. But in fact, it was an accumulated difference between the two states that led to a stalemate. One of the most important reasons is related to the different alliances each state is leading where each side is part of contradicting alliances that are having a different set of priorities in the (Persian) Gulf and the Arab region. 

Many attribute the differences between the two states to a competition to become the leader of the Islamic world. Others attribute it to sectarian differences. Nonetheless, the same kind of differences confronts the relationship between Saudi Arabia and Turkey. This is on the surface, and what lies beneath is deeper than it looks, since the differences between Iran and Saudi Arabia are based on political-ideological disagreements.

Saudi Arabia has been seeing the Islamic Revolution of Iran as a threat to the Saudi monarchy, since the early days of the revolution in 1979.

On the other hand, the open discussions on social media and in TV programs always refer to the following files.  One of the most important files is Yemen. The Arab alliance against Yemen is facing catastrophic defeats, especially for the Saudis, who are accusing Iran of supporting the Houthis in the war against the “Arab” Alliance intervention in Yemen. 

“The Arab alliance against Yemen is facing catastrophic defeats, especially for the Saudis.”

The attitude of the Alliance is inconceivable. They act as if the Houthis represent a strange militia that needs to be controlled, and not as part of the Yemeni population. In addition, the Arab Alliance, as it is referred to, in its reality is a Saudi-UAE- American-Israeli alliance.

The second file is the relation between Iran and Hezbollah, the Islamic resistance in Lebanon. Hezbollah has officially declared its support to the Yemenis’ resistance to the Intervention. The discrepancy between Hezbollah and the Saudis is deep since the suspicious role the latter has played in supporting the “Israeli” war on Lebanon in 2006 to disarm Hezbollah. This fact was declared in many of Sayyed Hassan Nasrullah’s speeches. 

The fourth file is the relation between Iran and al-Hashed al-Shaabi in Iraq. The Saudis insist that Iran should break its ties with the group and stop supporting its fighters. They even call these groups Militias. They do not even see them as part of the Iraqi population, who fought ISIS, a terrorist group that played a destructive role in bringing Iraq into disorder and chaos.

 In fact, the Saudis see that their role in Iraq should be of greater importance because Iraq is an Arab country, and the ties should be closer; however, it has lost its grip in favor of Iran. 

The fifth file is the Syrian file. Saudi Arabia is dealing with the file as if Syria is a quasi-state and its file needs to be run through agreements among parties. The Saudi Arabian monarchy holds a venom against President al-Assad. Let us remember, the minute Mr. Assad described Arab leaders in Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia as semi-men, in a speech he gave after “Israeli” War against Lebanon in July 2006. During this period the Iranian-Syrian relationships witnessed more improvement and became more strategic and more annoying to their foes in particular “Israel”.

The sixth file is definitely related to supporting the Palestinian resistance inside Palestine. Undoubtedly, Hezbollah is participating in this support, which the Americas and the Israelis are of great concern about. Ideologically, the resistance axis, especially Hezbollah, believes in ending the Israeli existence. 

The six points mentioned above are the key points that hold back the progress in the Vienna talks between Iran and G5+1. Actually, it is hard not to consider them, since most of the controversial issues with Saudi Arabia also revolve around the same points. Therefore, it is hard to reflect on any true agreement between the Saudis and the Iranians without the American accord. Hence, it is not difficult to understand the means behind the end foreseen results which is securing the “Israel’s” peace and security. 

Furthermore, an American retaliation airstrike took place 10 days after an attack on American’s targets on the 15th of February in Iraq; the airstrike targeted, as the BBC describes them as, Iran-backed militia groups, including Kataib Hezbollah and Kataib Sayyid al-Shuhada, who are allied with the Damascus government, on the borders between Boukamal in Syria and Qaim in Iraq.      

The BBC explains that the message to Tehran behind the airstrike is: “just because we’re willing to sit down and talk doesn’t mean [that] your proxies around the region can do what they want.” BBC continues, “The message came at a time when Biden’s administration is checking ways to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.”

 In addition, Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said the strike was meant to punish the militias but not to escalate tensions with Iran. Taking into consideration, since 2009, the U.S. has designated the two groups as terrorist organizations, accusing them of threatening the peace and stability of Iraq.

In reviewing the course of restoring the Iranian-Saudi relationship, Saudi Arabia’s intent was not really clear, when Iran declared on April 21st the second round of talks. However, the Saudis did not even confirm the information about the first round, held in Baghdad, until it was exposed by the American press. The Saudi attitude towards the conformation is not fully understood. It seems that they were dragged to the talks by the Americans. However, the talks were withheld at the same time in which Iran’s indirect talks with the Americans to return to the nuclear agreement were withheld. 

It has become common knowledge that the Iranians refused to include the Saudis in the neo-nuclear talks. Both states see the other party as a source of instability in the region; even though both parties have started new talks since April. The main issue Saudi Arabia is bushing towards is stopping the Iranian support to the Houthis in Yemen. However, the other list is mostly American demands, which the Saudis are including so that to retrieve normal relations with Iran. 

According to France Press, at the end of April, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia Muhammad bin Selman said: “He is hoping for a good relationship with Iran”.  This acknowledgment was later affirmed by the declaration of Mr. Faissal bin Farhan, the Saudi Foreign Minister, the same article quotes him: “We hope that the Iranians will see that in their interest is to work with their neighbors in a positive way that leads to security, stability and prosperity… I can only hope.” However, stability and prosperity are two big words Saudi Arabia cannot fully understand them outside the American context.

Accordingly, Biden’s administration recently declared that it is ready now to restart the talks with Iran under Ibrahim Raisi’s leadership as soon as possible. Consequently, the Saudi will follow. The U.S. has declared that it needs to finish and seal the nuclear agreement. It is cleverly timed. The American withdrawal from Afghanistan is supposed to complicate the regional situation and push Iran into closing the nuclear agreement in America’s best interest. And that is why the Saudis are waiting for American approval to acknowledge whether any Saudi- Iranian talks will lead to the best interest of the Americans and “the Israelis”, or not.

5-year plan prepared for fishing fleet modernization

5-year plan prepared for fishing fleet modernization – Tehran%20Times

TEHRAN- The director-general of Fisheries Office of Iran Fisheries Organization (IFO) announced the preparation of a five-year plan for the modernization and rebuilding of the country’s fishing fleet.

Mokhtar Akhoundi said according to this plan, vessels that are more than 20 years old have the priority for renovation and reconstruction and receiving facilities.

Stating that currently the largest navy and most ports in the country are related to fishing activities, he said the fishing fleet with about 11,500 fishing vessels, including 3,400 Lenj boats, 8,000 boats and 125 ships owned by the private and cooperative sectors are under the planning, supervision and management of the IFO.

Last week, Secretary of the Iranian Merchant Mariners Syndicate (IMMS) Saman Rezaei said buying new ships and the renovation of the country’s existing maritime fleet is an important necessity for developing the maritime trade.

“Older ships have higher depreciation and maintenance costs and lower safety, so buying new ships and renovating the existing ones is a very important necessity for the country’s maritime sector,” the portal of the Ports and Maritime Organization (PMO) quoted Rezaei as saying.

According to the official, an aging fleet will have several disadvantages and challenges including low safety, transportation restrictions, non-compliance with current requirements and standards, and high maintenance costs.

Rezaei has made the remarks referring to the Transport and Urban Development Ministry’s new plan for the development of a roadmap for improving the quality of the maritime transport fleet and the country’s northern and southern ports.

“The equipment of the country’s ports as well as our maritime fleet have been worn out due to sanctions and unfavorable economic conditions, and in recent years we have not been able to buy new ships and renovate the national fleet,” he said.

Noting that in addition to the purchase of new and up-to-date ships, the transfer of technology for the construction of such ships should be a priority as well, he added: “This view is very important and necessary so that we can have better performance in the field of the marine industry and shipbuilding in the future.”

The official further emphasized that specialized manpower is another important issue that should be considered in the maritime field, saying: “Efficient manpower in the maritime and port fields is a very important issue that the country needs due to its high existing capacities.”

Rezaei said that having smart vessels is another issue that the country’s maritime transport sector will need in the very near future, adding that eliminating the backlog in the shipbuilding industry will not be easily compensated and one of the solutions to do so is using new technologies, including the technology of building smart commercial vessels.

Olive gardens in Iran to expand by 4,000 hectares

Olive gardens in Iran to expand by 4,000 hectares – Tehran%20Times

TEHRAN – Iran plans to increase the area under olive cultivation across the country by 4,000 hectares in the current Iranian calendar year (ends on March 20, 2022), an official with the Agriculture Ministry announced.

“Considering the demand and the existence of the necessary infrastructure, it is possible to expand the country’s olive groves by 4,000 hectares if the necessary budget is allocated,” Javad Mir-Arab Razi, who is in charge of the ministry’s olive cultivation development program said.

As IRIB reported, according to the official, over 500 million rials (about $11,900) is required for the cultivation of each hectare of olive gardens, so for the realization of the abovementioned goal about $47.5 million is required.

Nearly 80 percent of the mentioned figure will be funded by the government in the form of bank facilities and the remaining will be paid by the farmers, Mir-Arab said.

Iran has banned the imports of olive oil since the Iranian calendar year 1390 (ended in March 2012) with the aim of supporting domestic production.

The per capita consumption of olive oil is currently 140 grams per year, while two years ago the figure was 200 grams per person, the official said.

The Agriculture Ministry plans to increase annual olive production to around 200,000 tons by 2022 and increase per capita consumption of olive oil to 190 grams per year.

The world’s average per capita olive oil consumption is 430 grams (about three times more than in Iran).

Mir-Arab had previously said that a total of 109,834 tons of olives are estimated to be produced in the current calendar year, 8.47 percent less than last year’s yields.

“We hope 55 percent of this year’s harvest will be sent to oil extraction factories,” he said earlier this month.

The official noted that presently there are 75,000 hectares of olive farms across the country, 58,000 hectares of which are productive.

“Last year, 120,000 tons of olives were produced. Yet, the decline we expect in this year’s production is due to the unfavorable weather conditions facing the country. Cold spells, as well as water shortage, have damaged olive plantations,” he added.

Based on figures released by the Agriculture Ministry, annual domestic demand for olive oil currently stands close to 15,000 tons.

Leading olive growing regions in Iran include Fars, Kerman, Hormozgan, Sistan-Baluchestan, Qazvin, Gilan, Golestan, and Zanjan provinces.

At present, some 40,000 Iranians earn their living through olive cultivation.

Tunisia parties call on army, judiciary to uphold the rule of law

Amid growing opposition to the measures taken by President Kais Saied, five political parties, on Friday, issued a joint statement calling on the army and judiciary to respect the country’s constitution and uphold the rule of law.

The signatories said that recent events have confirmed the fears they had expressed immediately after the President announced the state of emergency on 25 July.

These exceptional measures assumed under Article 80 of the constitution were “nothing but a pretext to obstruct state institutions, including the elected ones, and an attempt to break pledges and monopolise power.”

The statement read: “The actions of the President of the Republic constitute nothing but a coup against the constitution, in an adventure with uncalculated consequences.”

READ: Tunisians protest president’s ‘exceptional’ measures

In light of the worsening political crisis and the disruption of state institutions, including those that derive their legitimacy directly from the people, and in the absence of measures that would ensure the normal functioning of the state, the parties and movements called on:

  • The judiciary to ensure that there is no authority above it except the law; and to assume its role in guaranteeing rights and freedoms, establishing justice, and affirming the supremacy of the constitution and the rule of law.
  • The military establishment to refrain from engaging in political conflicts and to abide by its role in defending the homeland, its independence, and the integrity of its territories.
  • The military judiciary to decline the trial of civilians and to declare that itself devoid of the jurisdiction in cases related to civilians.
  • National parties and organisations to unite their ranks in defence of constitutional legitimacy and confront the frantic efforts aimed at returning the country to dictatorship, and play their role in supporting popular movements and ensuring their peacefulness.
  • All Tunisians to avoid being drawn into calls for division made by Kais Saied and to stand as an impenetrable fortress against attempts to reverse the gains of the revolution and defend their rights to work, freedom, and national dignity.

Signatories: 

Republican Popular Union Party

Alirada (Will) movement party

Popular Will Party

Amal wa ‘Aamal (Hope and Labour) movement

Wafa (Faithfulness) movement
