Why Bitterness and Anger Create Self-Inflicted Wounds That Can Be Lethal

March 5th, 2021

By Paul Lenda

Staff Writer for Wake Up World

Bitterness is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die. Holding onto anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else, except you’re the one that gets burned. Both bitterness and anger can lead to self-inflicted wounds that can sometimes literally become lethal.

Buddha once said, “You will not be punished for your anger; you will be punished by your anger. This is very true, and manifest itself mentally, emotionally, and even physically. When Eckhart Tolle said, “Where there is anger, there is always pain underneath,” he may not have been explicitly referring to physical repercussions of long-term anger, yet there have been numerous scientific studies that show us that is exactly what happened.

That’s not to say that momentary anger is “bad” or “negative” but that sustained anger that we don’t allow to flow through is is the problem. It becomes stuck, bottled up, and trapped, leading to bitterness, which acts as a poison that slowly leads to immense suffering, often physical.

How Bitterness and Anger Affect Out DNA

The feelings we experience every day, which we also project onto others and the rest of the world, can affect the very structure of our DNA! Research done at the Institute of HeartMath has demonstrated that when feelings of love, gratitude, and appreciation are felt, DNA relaxes itself and unwinds to become longer. On the flip side, when feelings of anger, frustration, stress, or fear are experienced, DNA tightens itself and becomes shorter. Some DNA codes even shut down during such negative emotional states. The good news is that these detrimental effects can be reversed by feeling the positive emotional states.

Negatively-charged emotional states such as anger, frustration, aggression, and rage have time and time again shown to manifest a wide range of diseases, ailments, and disorders in the body. In the book The Emotion Code by Dr. Bradley Nelson, there is the fascinating idea that emotionally-charged events that occurred at some point in our lives can literally get stuck as “trapped emotions” within our bodies, leading to pain, illness, and disease. Dr. Nelson was even able to localize the specific areas in the body where emotions get trapped as a result of a particular emotion experienced, such as the feeling of abandonment manifesting as a trapped emotion within the heart or small intestine.

However, not everyone manifests ailments as a result of their thoughts in the same way. As Choa Kok Sui noted in the book Pranic Healing that “It seems that a certain type of negative emotion may manifest as a certain type of disease in one patient but may manifest as another type of disease in another.”

Repeated feelings of frustration may manifest as an ulcer in one person, whereas in another person that may develop as a heart condition. When all is said and done, the universal law still applies, which is that negative energy in the form of our thoughts will have a negative effect on our physical body.

As we progress further into the future present, more and more discoveries are being made regarding the mind-body relationship regarding thoughts turning into things. Here are a couple:

  • The risk of having a heart attack more than doubles among those who become angry often.
  • The greatest predictor of cardiac arrest and heart attacks is the level of psychological stress a person is experiencing.

According to a 2006 Harvard study, 10 million adult men in the United States are so angry that they’re sick. In fact, their disease has a name: intermittent explosive disorder, or IED. It’s been something recognized since 1980, but has existed for millenia before humans discovered the facts of the matter.

Besides a person filled with anger and rage being an immediate threat to any property or people that may happen to be within swinging distance, there is some serious damage that is happening internally as well. People who experience frequent outbursts of anger have been found to be more likely to die of heart disease or stroke.

In fact, more than 30,000 heart attacks each year are triggered by momentary anger, according to a 2004 Harvard study. “People who have a lot of anger invest a lot of energy in trying to control it, and that kind of friction is likely to increase the probability of a heart attack,” says Charles Spielberger, Ph.D., a University of South Florida psychologist who developed the most widely used test to measure anger. “The more intense the anger, the more likely the heart attack.” Other studies have shown that angry men are three times more likely to develop premature cardiovascular disease, six times more likely to have an early heart attack, and three times more likely to have a stroke.

Other Physical Effects of Bitterness and Anger

Just so that we drive this point home, here are several other proven examples of how thinking negative thoughts manifests in disease in the body.

  • A Harvard Medical School Study of 1,623 heart attack survivors found that when subjects became angry during emotional conflicts, their risk of subsequent heart attacks was more than double that of those who remained calm.
  • Three 10-year studies concluded that emotional stress was more predictive of death from cancer and cardiovascular disease than smoking; people who were unable to effectively manage their stress had a 40% higher death rate than non-stressed individuals.
  • In a study of 5,716 middle-aged people, those with the highest self-regulation abilities were over 50 times more likely to be alive and without chronic disease 15 years later than those with the lowest self-regulation scores.

In the book Pranic Healing, there is a more subtle look into how our thoughts and emotions affect our well-being. The following is a quote from the book on this:

“Anger and intense worry devitalize the whole bioplasmic body so that the body becomes susceptible to all kinds of diseases. Negative emotions cause disturbances in the bioplasmic body so that the whole physical body becomes sick. You may have experienced that after intense anger or an intense altercation, you felt physically exhausted or became sick. This is because both the bioplasmic and visible physical bodies are drained of prana and become susceptible to infection.”

 How to Heal From the Effects of Bitterness and Anger

There are a number of ways you can heal your body if you have become bitter or angry for too long. One effective method I often teach about involved deep breathing.

Deep Breathing

Deep breathing is the simplest of all tools, yet the most important. Breath is life. Without it, our bodies cannot usually survive for more than a few minutes. Deep breathing is incredibly beneficial in a variety of ways, one of them being the dissipation of the feeling of anger or some other negative emotion.

Here is a good starter technique for deep breathing:

  • Breathe in and out deeply for one minute
  • Take a deep breath
  • Hold your breath for four seconds
  • Breathe out

You can time yourself or leave it untimed if that would cause you anxiety. It’s not important to have it exactly a set amount of time, but to just ensure you are able to breathe deeply long enough to feel a state of inner peace. Holding the breath at the end for a few moments is the icing on this cake of calm.

This method will bring you inner peace, and there will be much less of a desire to respond to a situation negatively. Try this out for yourself and see the results of this simple, yet powerful, technique. It’s a quick way to deal with a difficult situation in the moment, and if you have been feeling anger or bitterness for a long time.

Non-physical thoughts and emotions both affect the physical body. That is why becoming mindful and expanding your awareness will help you avoid suffering from the consequences of letting anger linger for too long, as well as avoiding the poison pill that we call bitterness. When you practice deep breathing, you can heal your body and ensure your body stays in its optimal state of being.

Why Russian Jews are divided over the anti-Putin movement

JTA — Lucy Shteyn is only 24 years old, but she already has firsthand knowledge of what awaits vocal critics of President Vladimir Putin in her native Russia.

In 2018, a year after Shteyn, a Jewish gay rights activist and a prominent opposition activist, was elected to Moscow’s city council, hackers got into her cellphone and computer. They released many of her personal pictures and correspondence online.

One of the pictures was of a well-known film critic, who is married, sleeping in her bed. Moskovskaya Gazeta, a tabloid that ran the pictures, labeled Shteyn “a hunter of married men” living a life full of “drugs and techno.” On ultranationalist forums, anonymous users called her a “Jewish whore” and posted pictures of Auschwitz with her name as a hashtag.

The hack against Shteyn, a former journalist for Radio Liberty, was not the first of its kind, or the most dangerous. In 2019, gay rights activist Yelena Grigoriyeva was murdered in St. Petersburg shortly after her personal details were leaked and she appeared on a homophobic group’s hit list.

But this has done little to subdue Shteyn. She has infuriated supporters of Putin’s anti-gay policies by posting pictures of herself kissing another woman. In a tribute to the punk protest band Pussy Riot, Shteyn has also made plaster mold castings of her breasts and affixed them to historic buildings.

On January 23, Shteyn was arrested in Moscow during a rally in support of Alexey Navalny, the former businessman turned politician who has presented the most serious challenge thus far to Putin’s 20-year hold on power. After Navalny was poisoned in Russia with nerve gas last year, he was treated in Germany before returning last month to Russia to face a trial he has said was rigged. He was arrested upon his return and sentenced to 2.5 years in prison for corruption charges that he says are fake.

In response, thousands of Russians have taken to the streets to protest Putin’s government since late January in the largest such movement since 2019. Authorities have arrested hundreds of the protesters, and Shteyn’s relatively high profile may have marked her for further legal action.

On January 27, police broke into her home and confiscated her computer, the news site 24SMI reported. Based on information gathered from it, the Basmanny District Court of Moscow on Monday placed Shteyn under house arrest until March 23, pending a trial for incitement to violation of sanitary and epidemiological rules. She could spend years in jail if convicted.

Shteyn is far from the only Jew in Navalny’s corner.

Leonid Volkov and Maksim Kats, two tech-savvy individuals from Jewish homes, had key roles in Navalny’s unsuccessful 2013 bid to be elected mayor of Moscow.

“Russians today are living in an Orwellian society, where an enormous propaganda machine teaches people that two plus two equals five, and you have to be very brave to contradict this,” Volkov, who left Russia in 2014, told Mishpacha magazine last month.

But Russia’s two main Jewish communal organizations — the Chabad-affiliated Federation of Jewish Communities in Russia, or FJCR, and the non-Chabad Russian Jewish Congress — have remained silent about the unrest.

They see Putin as a friendly force for Russian Jews, a leader who has allowed their communities to thrive. They argue that he has facilitated their growth through government-gifted land for synagogues and consistent enforcement of Russia’s anti-discrimination laws against perpetrators of anti-Semitic hate crimes.

In 2015, a leader of FJCR, Alexander Boroda, spoke candidly about the reasons for his group’s support for Putin.

“The Jews of Russia must realize the dangers inherent in the possible collapse of the Putin government, understand the rules of the game and be aware of the limitations,” he said at a conference of the Limmud FSU Jewish learning group.

“In Russia, there is virtually unlimited freedom of religion and the Jewish community must ensure this situation continues,” Boroda added. “The support for religious institutions is wider than in the United States and defense of Jews against manifestations of anti-Semitism is greater than in other European countries. We do not have the privilege of losing what we have achieved and the support of the government for the community.”

The Putin government’s treatment of the LGBTQ and Muslim communities has been decidedly different.

In 2013, Russia outlawed “gay propaganda among minors” amid a wave of homophobic rhetoric on state television that coincided with a rise in violent incidents, some of them deadly. Most of those crimes have remained unsolved, according to the SOVA human rights watchdog.

The Russian government has also furthered its longtime crackdown on what it calls radical Islam, jailing clerics suspected of extremist incitement, denying them legal recourse and allegedly torturing some of them.

When it comes to tolerance of minorities, Navalny’s own record is not without blemish. In 2007 he was expelled from the liberal Yabloko party, which was founded by the Jewish economist Grigory Yavlinsky, for attending a far-right event called the “Russian March.” It was one of many expressions of xenophobia sparked by the immigration to Moscow of millions of Muslims from parts of Russian Central Asia.

In a YouTube video from that year meant to bolster Navalny’s political career, Navalny portrays a pest control specialist dispensing tips on how to exterminate immigrants from Central Asia, whom he calls flies and cockroaches. The skit ends with him shooting a man wearing Muslim traditional garb, including a black robe and keffiyeh.

While seeking to broaden his base, Navalny gradually moved away from such jingoism, but his flirtation with it has not helped him gain the trust of leaders of ethnic minorities in Russia, which is home to about 200,000 Jews.

As Putin tightens his grip on Russian media, the courts and what little remains of freedom of expression online, tens of thousands of Russian Jews are leaving. In addition to Putin’s assault on democracy, a recession is ravaging the Russian economy. Following a crash in its oil prices, the Russian ruble is now worth half its 2014 value against the dollar.

Since 2015, about 60,000 Russian citizens have immigrated to Israel alone under its Law of Return for Jews and their relatives. In the entire decade prior to 2015, only 36,784 Russian Jews had come.

“Ninety percent of Russians really love Putin. They admire him, they think he’s doing the right thing, focusing on hating minorities and gay people,” one of the newcomers, a marketing specialist named Dima Eygenson, told JTA in 2019. “The other 10 percent, to which I belong, don’t feel free to say what we think about this.”

Mississippi governor likens Biden’s ‘neanderthal’ remark to Hillary Clinton’s ‘deplorable’ comments

The governor of Mississippi has likened Joe Biden’s comments over his decision to scrap mask mandates as “neanderthal thinking” to being “called deplorable” by Hillary Clinton in 2016.

The president said their decision to discontinue masks was “neanderthal thinking” telling reporters: “I think it’s a big mistake.”

He said: “The last thing we need is Neanderthal thinking that, in the meantime, everything’s fine, take off your mask and forget it.”

In a segment on Fox News discussing the remarks of Mr Biden, Republican governor Tate Reeves said he felt the remarks were similar to controversial comments made by Hillary Clinton in 2016.

“Today I feel the same way as I did the day that Hillary Clinton called all of us in middle of America deplorables when president Biden said that we were all neanderthals,” he said.

He added: “It struck me as someone who needs to get out of Washington DC and actually travel to middle America.”

In 2016, Ms Clinton sparked backlash when she said “half” of Donald Trump’s supporters could be grouped in “the basket of deplorables” at a fundraising event in New York City.

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables’. Right?” Ms Clinton said during the rally.

The then-presidential hopeful endured fallout from the comments after critics claimed her vocabulary proved Ms Clinton had a deep distrust and animosity for working-class Americans.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki also told reporters on Wednesday that “this entire country has paid the price for political leaders who ignored the science when it comes to the pandemic”,

“We’re asking people to listen to health experts, medical experts, the CDC, to [Dr Anthony Fauci], to others who are basing their recommendations on how to save people’s lives,” she said.

Texas governor, Greg Abbott, had previously faced pressure from fellow Republicans to remove the mask rule which he initially resisted implementing when the first surge hit in the summer.

The state, which recorded 44,000 deaths from coronavirus and more than two million infections, has become the largest state in the US to reopen.

Mississippi has recorded 296,000 coronavirus cases since the pandemic gripped the country last year, leading to the deaths of 6,743 people.

New Zealand earthquake: 7.3-magnitude tremor sparks tsunami warning

A shallow, powerful earthquake has struck off the coast of New Zealand, prompting warnings of the threat of a tsunami.

People who felt a long or strong quake are being advised to move to the nearest high ground, or as far inland as possible.

Tremors were felt across the region from the quake whose preliminary magnitude was 7.3, officials say.

The quake, 148 miles (238km) northeast of Gisborne ’s North Island, , struck 6.2 miles (10km) deep under the sea, at 2.27am local time on Friday, waking many people.

The National Emergency Management Agency tweeted: “Anyone near the coast who felt a LONG or STRONG quake should MOVE IMMEDIATELY to the nearest high ground, or as far inland as you can #EQNZ”.

The agency said it was assessing whether the quake had created a tsunami that could affect New Zealand, and that it would provide an update as soon as the initial assessment has been completed.

New Zealand’s seismological agency GeoNet described the quake as “severe”, saying it had received 60,463 reports of shaking.

The US Geological Survey initially put the quake at 7.3, then revised it down to 6.9.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said tsunami waves were possible within 186 miles (300km) of the quake’s epicentre. 

Tremors from the earthquake were recorded on the other side of the world, in Scotland.

Biden news – live: Militia group ‘planning Capitol attack today’ as Trump mulls 2024 run without Pence

Biden criticises Mississippi and Texas governors for abandoning Covid-19 restrictions

Capitol Police said they have obtained intelligence of a “possible plot” by a militia group to breach the Capitol on Thursday, just months after it was attacked by a violent mob of Donald Trump supporters.

The threat appears to be connected to a conspiracy theory promoted by supporters of extremist group QAnon that Trump will rise again to power on March 4, which was the presidential inauguration day until 1933, when it was moved to January 20, according to a report in The Washington Post.

It comes amid reports Donald Trump has told allies he is serious about running for president in 2024, something the former president hinted at during the Conservative Political Action Conference last Sunday.

However it is understood if he does make a come back, close aides are encouraging him to pick a running mate who will help him attract voters he lost in 2020 and not stick with his former vice-president Mike Pence, as reported by Bloomberg.

Trump ‘seriously considering 2024 run for president’

Donald Trump has told allies he is serious about running for president in 2024, something the former president hinted at during the Conservative Political Action Conference last Sunday.

However it is understood if he does make a come back, close aides are encouraging him to pick a running mate who will help him attract voters he lost in 2020 and not stick with his former vice-president Mike Pence, as reported by Bloomberg.

A few names have already been thrown into the hat, such as South Carolina Senator Tim Scott and Republican Kristi Noem, who has previously defended Trump’s legacy as president.

Trump’s relationship with Pence has been strained ever since the violence at the US Capitol on January 6 where supporters of the former president raided the building.

Pence, his family and multiple other politicians were forced to flee the building. Trump and Pence did not speak to each other for days after the incident amid reports the incident in the Capitol has caused a fissure in their relationship.

Biden says he is ‘looking forward’ to signing election reforms bill

Joe Biden says he looks forward to signing the election reform bill passed the US House of Representatives on Wednesday — with the sweeping piece of legislation still needing to clear the Senate.

“I look forward to signing it into law…so that together we can strengthen and restore American democracy for the next election and all those to come,” Mr Biden said in a statement released by the White House.

“This landmark legislation is urgently needed to protect that right, to safeguard the integrity of our elections, and to repair and strengthen our democracy,” the president’s statement added.

The bill includes provisions on access to voting, as well as allowing candidates with smaller platforms to stand in elections. But, as Alex Woodward reports, it seems unlikely that enough Republicans will support the bill to pass:

‘You gotta love Dolly Parton’, says Dr Fauci

Dolly Parton went viral on social media this week, following a video in which she riffed on her own hit “Jolene” by singing “Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine. I’m begging of you please don’t hesitate”, as she received her own dose of a Moderna jab.

Ms Parton, who donated $1 million to help fund research into the same vaccine last year, added “cause once you dead, then that’s a bit too late.”

Dr Anthony Fauci, watching the video on CNN on Thursday morning, was also delighted by the riff on “Jolene”, and said to viewers: “You gotta love Dolly Parton”.

‘I think President Trump has a responsibility to tell them to stand down’

Republican Michael McCaul has said that Donald Trump should tell his supporters to “stand down” after reports that extremists might try and attack the Capitol today.

An unidentified group of “militia” discussed plans in February to “take control of the Capitol and remove Democratic lawmakers on or about March 4,” according to a bulletin issued on Tuesday by the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

March 4 is the day when believers in the baseless QAnon conspiracy have claimed that former President Donald Trump, defeated by President Joe Biden in the Nov. 3 election, will be sworn in for a second term in office.

Mr McCaul told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “The Lead” said: “I think President Trump has a responsibility to tell them to stand down — this threat is credible, it’s real.”

He added: “It’s a right-wing militia group that believes that the original — because the original inaugural day was March 4 until the 20th Amendment passed, they think this is the true inauguration day and that President Trump should be inaugurated tomorrow. And that is the threat we face right now.”

Oregon moves to ban public display of nooses, calling them symbol of racism

Lawmakers in Oregon are moving to ban the public display of nooses, after anti-racism campaigners and city leaders petitioned to see the introduction of a bill.

The bill would make intimidation by display of a noose a misdemeanour punishable by up to a year in prison and a $6,250 (£4,485) fine.

If the bill passes then Oregon would be the sixth US state to criminalise the racist symbol being displayed in public.

US Senate set to debate President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package

The Democrat controlled senate will consider a motion to launch 20 hours of debate on the massive Covid-19 bill that includes funding for vaccines and medical supplies and extends jobless assistance.

Republicans’ response to the motion will likely be an early indication of the steep opposition the bill faces in the chamber.

The Senate will convene despite a warning by Capitol Police that it had obtained intelligence about a militia group’s possible plot to breach the Capitol on Thursday, a day some conspiracy theorists believe that Republican former President Donald Trump will be sworn in for a second term.

The House of Representatives canceled its Thursday session after the Capitol Police’s warning.

Jersey Police Criticized Over TikTok Dance Routine

A Hasidic Jewish family says they were kicked off a flight because they refused to make their 18-month-old baby wear a mask, while passengers claimed Frontier Airlines staff performed celebratory high-fives after the incident.

A video of the incident shows the family walking off the plane as other passengers complain, “This is Nazi Germany! “and, “This is gonna go all over the news!”

Despite the policy being that children aged under 2 do not have to wear masks, the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council (OJPAC) says the family were told “to get off because their 18-month-old had no mask.”

After the other passengers started to bitterly complain about the treatment of the family, they too were removed from the plane and the flight was cancelled.

Eyewitnesses said the airlines staff were seen congratulating and “high-fiving each other,” while another allegedly stated, “A job well done to those Jews.”

However, Frontier Airlines put out a statement claiming that the family was removed because adults were refusing to wear masks.

“Members of a large group, including adults, refused to wear masks as flight 2878 was preparing for departure from MIA-LGA. Repeated requests to comply with federal law necessitated their removal from the flight,” the airline declared, adding, “The issue did not stem from a child under 2.”

This claim is contradicted by footage showing the adults wearing masks as they leave the plane as well as testimony from passengers, one of whom asserted, “No adult refused to wear a mask.”

“The only person w/o a mask was a 18 month old. I’m still horrified how you handled it,” they tweeted.

Political commenter Yossi Gestetner also pointed out the absurdity of masks on planes when people remove them for long periods of time when eating or drinking.

“The airplane was loaded corner to corner with ZERO distancing, and for most of the flight many passengers would anyway not wear masks due to eating,” said Gestetner. “So it’s odd that you chose to cancel a flight over an alleged mask issue (not backed by video and disputed by eyewitnesses).”

Israel’s Aleph Farms and meatmaker BRF to bring cultured steak to Brazil

Aleph Farms, Ltd. and BRF S.A., a global Brazilian meat and food maker, have signed an accord to jointly develop cultivated meat and bring it to Brazilian tables.

Under the memorandum of understanding, Aleph and BRF will co-develop and produce cultivated meat using Aleph’s patented BioFarm technology. BRF will distribute the cultivated beef products in Brazil.

This partnership will help strengthen BRF’s supply chain and reduce its environmental impact, while diversifying the company’s product offering to meet the growing consumer demand for a variety of meat products, Aleph said in a statement.

The new partnership advances Aleph Farms’ strategy to integrate its products into the existing meat consumption ecosystem, said Didier Toubia, co-founder and CEO of Aleph Farms, in a statement. “Leveraging the expertise and infrastructure of leading food and meat companies will drive a faster scale-up of cultivated meat and eventually lead to a broader positive impact. As one of the largest beef producers in the world, Brazil is a strategic market for us.”

Aleph Farms will bring to the partnership its manufacturing BioFarm technology to cultivate whole-muscle steaks from cattle cells without the use of animals.

BRF is one of the largest meat producers in the world, with over 30 brands in its portfolio and over 95,000 employees around the world. The firm had revenue of approximately BRL 39 billion (approximately $7.25 billion) and invested over BRL 155 million in 2020 in projects to reduce environmental impact.

The partnership with Aleph is part of BRF’s 2030 Vision strategy to play a key role in the ongoing “food revolution,” said CEO Lorival Luz. “Since 2014, we have witnessed an increasing global demand for new sources of protein driven by several factors, namely environmental concerns, new diets and lifestyles, which has spurred the growth of new dietary genres including flexitarianism, vegetarianism and more.”

Brazil has committed to cut total net greenhouse gas emissions by 43% in 2030. In April 2020, Aleph Farms committed to eliminating emissions associated with its meat production by 2025 and reach net-zero emissions across its entire supply chain by 2030. With livestock accounting for significant greenhouse gas emissions and demand for meat expected to continue growing, Aleph Farms’ partnerships with industry incumbents can help companies and countries reach their climate goals, the statement said.

In January, Aleph Farms said it had teamed up with Japan’s Mitsubishi Corp. to bring cultured meat to Japan. The Israeli firm has set up similar partnerships with other multinationals. Migros, the Swiss industrial group, and US-based food corporation Cargill have also invested in the startup.

Bullets sent in envelope to Italy’s former prime minister Matteo Renzi

Italy’s former Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has received an anonymous envelope containing two bullets, members of his Italia Viva (IV) party said on social media.

The news has been widely condemned by Italian politicians, including the League and Five Star Movement, who have expressed their opposition to threats against politicians.

“It is time to say enough to this politics of violence and hatred,” said Teresa Bellanova, Deputy Minister and member of IV.

“Matteo, we are at your side, with strength and pride, we will not be intimidated,” she added on Facebook.

The President of the Chamber, Maria Elisabetta Alberti Casellati, also telephoned the former Prime Minister to express her solidarity.

“Political dissent, even if bitter, cannot and must never transcend into threats and violence,” added government minister Mara Carfagna on Twitter.

Renzi posted on Facebook following the outpouring of support online, saying: “Thank you all. Let us move forward together with freedom and courage.”

He served as Italy’s Prime Minister from 2014 to 2016 and remains in the Senate as the leader of IV, a small splinter group of the centre-left Democratic Party.

In January, his party’s decision to leave the country’s coalition government forced the resignation of former Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and sent Italy into a political crisis.

A new government was formed by former President of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, to avoid an early election during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Renzi’s popularity has suffered as a result, according to recent polls.

The politician was also heavily criticised for travelling to Saudi Arabia in January and holding a meeting with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

A US intelligence report found that bin Salman had likely approved an operation to kill or capture Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October 2018.

Renzi responded to criticism by saying that it is “fair and necessary” to maintain good relations with Saudi Arabia.

Other politicians in Italy, including former prime ministers Silvio Berlusconi and Mario Monti, have previously received anonymous parcels containing bullets.

EU parliament shelves vote on Brexit deal after Boris Johnson ‘violates’ agreement

The European Parliament has shelved plans to approve Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal after Brussels accused the UK of violating the agreement.

The trade deal between the UK and EU has been in provisional force for two months but needs to pass a vote in the European Parliament to become permanent.

Leaders of the legislature’s political groups intended to agree a date for the final vote at a meeting on Thursday, but instead agreed to hold off after the latest move by the UK.

On Wednesday Boris Johnson’s government said it would unilaterally change parts of the agreement to better suit UK businesses in Northern Ireland.

“The conference of presidents this morning decided not to agree a date to ratify the TCA, pending developments yesterday,” one EU source told The Independent.

“The European Parliament leaders want to see where this is going.”

Following the meeting, senior German socialist MEP Bernd Lange tweeted: “Still valid: ‘Should the UK authorities breach – or threaten to breach – the Withdrawal Agreement, through the United Kingdom Internal Market Bill… or in any other way, the European Parliament will, under no circumstances, ratify any agreement between the EU and the UK’”.

Boris Johnson’s official spokesman said he was not aware of the Conference of Presidents’ decision, but added: “We want the EU to ratify the TCA as soon as possible.

“We have made clear we will allow for extension to the end of April, but we expect the EU to ratify the deal by that deadline.”

The European Commission, the bloc’s executive, on Wednesday evening pledged legal action after UK ministers said they would extend a ‘grace period’ designed to allow UK supermarkets and suppliers time to adapt to new trade barriers across the Irish Sea.

Maros Sefcovic, vice president of the European Commission, said that would be a “violation” of the protocol agreed with the UK.

He also warned it would be the “second time that the UK government is set to breach international law”, following a similar row last year.

In a statement the European Commission said Sefcovic would inform Lord Frost, the minister who helped negotiate the Brexit deal, that it would “respond to these developments in accordance with the legal means established by the Withdrawal Agreement and the Trade and Cooperation Agreement.”

It added that the EU had “strong concerns over the UK’s unilateral action, as this amounts to a violation of the relevant substantive provisions of the Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland and the good faith obligation under the Withdrawal Agreement.

“This is the second time that the UK government is set to breach international law.

“This also constitutes a clear departure from the constructive approach that has prevailed up until now, thereby undermining … the mutual trust necessary for solution-oriented cooperation.”

The grace period – a temporary relaxation of checks – had been due to expire at the end of this month.

At that point supermarkets in Northern Ireland, which have struggled with supply problems since the government’s Brexit deal came into force on 1 January, had expected to see their woes worsen.



It’s the British government essentially breaking the protocol – breaking their own commitments again

Simon Coveney, Irish foreign minister

But Northern Ireland secretary Brandon Lewis said the government would be “taking several temporary operational steps to avoid disruptive cliff-edges as engagement with the EU continues through the Joint Committee”.

Controversially he announced the new grace period would continue until at least 1 October.

Ministers had asked the EU to extend the grace period until 2023, but Brussels had declined to do so so far.

Mr Johnson’s spokesperson insisted that UK officials had notified the European Commission and the Irish Government of their move earlier this week, though he was unable to give a precise date or time.

“We need to make progress to address the disproportionate impact some of the aspects of the protocol are having on the citizens of Northern Ireland, contrary to their intended purpose,” said the spokesman.

“That’s why following official-level notification to the Commission earlier this week, we have set out the temporary technical steps, which largely continue measures already in place, to provide more time for supermarkets and parcel operators to adapt and to implement the new requirements in the protocol.

“These are sensible and necessary practical steps to address some of the issues being faced. We continue to want to work through the Joint Committee to address the issues raised in Mr Gove’s letter of a few weeks back.”

Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney said on Thursday that the latest episode showed the UK was a negotiating partner the EU “simply can’t trust”, adding: “It’s the British government essentially breaking the protocol – breaking their own commitments again.” Mr Johnson’s spokesperson rejected the characterisation.

Louise Haigh, Labour’s shadow secretary of state for Northern Ireland, urged Boris Johnson take “personal responsibility for finding lasting solutions that lower tension and make the protocol work”.

“Unilaterally undermining his own agreement has only provoked further instability,” she said.

“He should show leadership and hold urgent talks with all parties to the protocol, and Northern Ireland’s political parties, to ensure the voice of all communities is being heard loud and clear.

“The Belfast/Good Friday Agreement is the basis on which communities have lived in peace for two decades. It has endured because cooperation is the only way – that must be the focus.”

Human life under attack like never before.

Human life under attack like never before.
Tap News / Tapestry

https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-03-03-situation-update-mar-3rd-we-are-not-the-first-civilization-on-earth.html

Mike Adams at his best. Vegetable oils and soya are gender-bending poisons. The vaccine will kill millions. But so is food destroying the birth rate, and the health of millions. He describes the situation of humanity and identifies the demonic forces which are attacking us. Not many will survive the assault that is bearing down on us. Information is key. Guess who wants all real meat replaced with soya (infertility poisons). Why? It’s another human killing industry owned by good old uncle Billy Gaetz.

nw:

You may have heard in the news in the last couple years that “carnivore diets” have been growing in popularity, and have some surprisingly powerful health benefits that often shock a lot of people, since this way of eating is so contrary to what you hear in the mass media.

In fact, you may have even heard that the famous Joe Rogan (comedian and most popular podcast host in the world) tried a full month of a carnivore diet last year in 2020 and said it was the “best he’s ever felt” while also losing 12 lbs of body fat and losing his love handles that he could never get rid of previously. He also reported that his energy was perfectly stable for the month that he ate carnivore. He felt so good eating an all-meat diet that he did it for 30 days again this past January, and reported similar results again.

As you read this newsletter, I’d encourage you to be open minded and realize that most “gurus” out there that you hear from in the media actually don’t have much depth of nutrition education, and most powerful food companies that sell “plant based” junk food actually have a lot of influence on spreading propaganda trying to blame all health problems on meat, eggs, and other animal foods because they know that you’ll buy more plant-based junk food if you eat less animal food. But when you dig into the real science, and explore it with an open mind, you actually find that most information about nutrition that’s preached in the mainstream isn’t necessarily correct, and I’ll explain some of my findings in this email.

If you’ve never heard of the “carnivore diet”, it’s basically a way of eating that focuses either entirely or mostly on healthy meat, fish, and eggs, while avoiding most plant-foods, or choosing only small amounts of plant foods based on a scale of plant toxicity… for example, with leafy greens, nightshades, grains, and beans being the most toxic plant foods, and fruits being the least toxic plant foods (I’ll explain more on that concept of plant toxicity levels in a bit)…

I’ve been intensely studying the science of carnivore and carnivore-ish diets for several years now, and have been fascinated by the impressive health benefits that thousands of people are getting from this way of eating. However, as with any way of eating, there are some types of people that get a lot more benefits than others.

The biggest categories of people that seem to benefit the most are people with these conditions…

1. Autoimmune conditions — a very high percentage of people with autoimmunity see a dramatic reduction in symptoms, and many times, and full resolution of symptoms by following either a carnivore diet or a mostly carnivore diet that contains only the simplest and least toxic plants. For autoimmunity, it’s basically the most efficient type of elimination diet, since there’s so many types of plants that trigger autoimmune symptoms.

2. Gut/digestion issues — since excessive fiber and excessive plant-based antinutrients can exaggerate digestive conditions, a mostly meat diet can actually be really healing for the digestive system, even though that statement surprises most people. Even the world-renowned digestive doc Dr. Michael Ruscio stated in an interview that somewhere around 60% or more of his patients need less fiber, not more. Too much fiber can cause overgrowths of certain types of bacteria that can cause digestive distress. Too much fiber can also irritate the digestive tract in a lot of people as well.

I personally know a LOT of people that are using carnivore diets and experiencing dramatically improved digestion. I also know several people with Crohn’s disease where carnivore is the only thing that has worked for them to control their Crohn’s, and they had tried everything before that. It won’t work for everyone, and most conventional doctors have never even heard of carnivore diets, so don’t expect your doctor to know anything about it if you ask.

3. Diabetes and obesity — although carbs aren’t “bad” necessarily, especially for metabolically healthy people or people that do intense exercise, low-carb diets (including carnivore type low-carb diets) can be particularly powerful for at least some time frame for getting type 2 diabetics back to normal blood sugar and insulin functioning in the body. If you’re diabetic or pre-diabetic, I’d highly recommend reading this natural method for reversing Diabetes here.

Also, weight loss gets pretty darn easy when you’re eating almost entirely meat, because meat is the single most satiating food, and it’s basically impossible to overeat on calories with a meat-only or mostly meat diet. Think about how hard it is to overeat on steak. You just stop when you’re full. But think how easy it is to overeat on mac n cheese, cereal, bagels, bread, pizza, ice cream, and other carb/fat combos that are highly addicting.

As for me personally, I’ve done about an 85-90% carnivore diet for about 3 years now (I’d call it animal-based, with only carefully selected plants such as fruit that I know does well with my body)… For me, this has been the absolute easiest and best diet for me, and I’ve never felt so good. My digestion is basically almost perfect since cutting out most veggies, beans, nightshades, etc, and my energy and body composition have improved as well. And my bloodwork has been nearly perfect too for these last few years on a mostly meat-based diet.

And no, despite the false belief by outdated doctors and the mainstream media that cholesterol causes heart disease, nothing could be further from the truth… in fact, the biggest causes of heart disease are actually vegetable oils and sugar, but NOT meat. Meat actually contains important nutrients that can help prevent heart disease.

As for what I personally eat… I eat mostly red meat almost every day (grass fed beef, bison, lamb, and yak), fish and shellfish a couple times a week, eggs, and the only plants I eat are small amounts of squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, avocado, cucumbers, coffee, wine, and sweet fruit only during the local fruit season, but not during winter. I also enjoy a small spoonful of honey a few days a week as a dessert replacement.

I personally choose to avoid chicken and pork mostly, since they have about 10x the inflammatory omega6 content of red meat (red meat only contains 2-3% omega6, while chicken and pork contain about 15-20%, since chicken and pork are fed almost entirely grains and soy, whereas red meat like beef, lamb and bison eats mostly grass and forage for the majority of their lives)… I explain in more detail why red meat is healthier than chicken or pork in this article, and also why red meat is more environmentally sustainable too, which surprises most people.

The best diet change I ever made that had the biggest impact on improving my health was cutting out most veggies and beans over the last 3-4 years. I actually intentionally avoid almost all veggies and beans now, and this had the most dramatic impact on how I’ve felt on a daily basis.

I personally don’t think veggies are an ancestrally consistent food source for humans, and a study of over 300 hunter-gatherer tribes showed that the average diets of hunter-gatherers around the world was about 80-85% meat, fish, and fruit, and the other 15% was basically small amounts of nuts and roots…But hunter gatherers really didn’t eat much of what we’d call “vegetables” in our modern day food supply. Leaves and stems were only 1% of the average hunter-gatherer diet, even in tropical areas.

fter all, 99% of leaves in the wild are toxic, and why would hunter-gatherers have wasted time gathering something that has no calories…it just makes no logical sense. The majority of plant foods our ancestors ate was actually fruit mostly (the only part of the plant that wants to be eaten), along with a little bit of nuts and roots, since those are the more calorically-dense plants that would have made sense to gather.

I also think that about 50% of vegetables are actually harmful to a lot of people based on genetics and other health conditions… For example, brassica veggies can be bad for people with thyroid conditions, nightshade veggies can be bad for people with arthritis, leafy greens can cause oxalate issues such as kidney stones, and certain other vegetables can often worsen digestive issues. So as you can see, veggies can often have more detriments than benefits.

Another thing I have noticed over the years is that the majority of men in general seem to do fantastic on carnivore or mostly carnivore diets, whereas women seem to be more 50/50… some women feel amazing on carnivore, and other women feel the need for more fiber and more plant foods in general. This is actually ancestrally consistent too, since hunter-gatherers generally had the men as the main hunters and the women more frequently as gatherers, and the men had access to more frequent meat than the women in a lot of these tribes. So it’s possible that men are built for a slightly higher protein diet than women as a generalization.

Another good example is my friend Dr Paul Saladino, who wrote the popular book The Carnivore Code… he’s been mostly carnivore for 3 years now too, and eats nothing but meat, organs, honey, and a small amount of fruit, and the guy is one of the healthiest people I know, whereas when he was vegan I think 7 years ago, he destroyed his health eating that way.

Lastly, I’d recommend people have an open mind when researching things like carnivore vs plant-based diets, as there’s a LOT of closed-mindedness from the plant-based community to even consider or research anything other than what they believe. I’ve come to the conclusion that most humans can thrive just fine on either a meat-based diet or possibly even a plant-based diet as long as those plants are considered on a scale of plant toxicity and chosen carefully, while also getting at least some animal-based foods to balance out the micronutrients that simply can’t be obtained from plants only. And some people (if you have northern genetics) might even consider being more animal-based in the winter and early spring, when our northern european ancestors would have been mostly carnivore, and then switching to a higher plant diet in the summer and fall when fruits, nuts and roots would have been more plentiful.

Another thing is that it seems more important for longevity that we’re careful about avoiding the WORST foods that are causing most disease… with the absolute worst foods that are killing most people being vegetable oils (aka seed oils like soybean oil, corn oil, sunflower oil, cottonseed, canola, etc) and sugar, and possibly too much refined grains too. And for people that try out eating a more meat-based diet (with smaller amounts of carefully selected plant foods), they often find that it becomes really easy to avoid the worst foods like vegetable oils and sugar because they don’t need to eat any processed food and also don’t have cravings for unhealthy food anymore either since meat is so satiating.

UK government admits 294 deaths following experimental COVID vaccines. As the vaccine doesn’t preve nt COVID anyway, is that enough experimenting possibly?

UK government admits 294 deaths following experimental COVID vaccines. As the vaccine doesn’t prevent COVID anyway, is that enough experimenting possibly?
Tap News / Tapestry

Pfizer Inc, is currently involved in marketing its experimental mRNA vaccine with the relentless support of national governments. Amply documented, barely reported by the media, numerous cases of deaths and injury have occurred.

What is at stake is what you might call “C.Y.A”, namely.

“the bureaucratic technique of averting future accusations of policy error or wrongdoing by deflecting responsibility in advance” (William Safire, NYT,)

Extensive fraud and coverup prevail at the highest levels of government.

The “Green Light” to market the experimental mRNA vaccine was granted back in December 2020, despite the fact that according to the FDA, the vaccine is an “unapproved product”.

The FDA in its ambiguous (C.Y.O) statement has provided a so-called Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, namely “to permit the emergency use of the unapproved product, … for active immunization…” (see below)

There is something fishy and “contradictory” in this statement. The experimental Pfizer mRNA vaccine is both “unapproved” and “permitted”.

I have checked this statement with a prominent lawyer. It is blatantly illegal to market an “unapproved product”.

The Pfizer- Moderna vaccine is categorized by the CDC as an “investigational drug”. “The emergency use” clause is there to justify the launching of what might be described as an “illegal drug”.

There is an ongoing fear campaign but there is no “Emergency” which justifies “Emergency Use” Why:

  1. Both the WHO and the CDC have confirmed that Covid-19 is “similar to seasonal influenza” it is not a killer virus.
  2. The PCR test used to estimate “confirmed positive cases” is flawed.
  3. Since March 2020, the Covid-19 “numbers” have been hiked up.
  4. The validity of the test has been questioned (January 2021) by the WHO.

“Fraudulent Marketing”, “Health Care Fraud”

What is unfolding is the “fraudulent marketing” of an “unapproved” vaccine.

In a historic US Department of Justice decision in September 2009, Pfizer Inc. pleaded guilty to criminal charges. It was “The Largest Health Care Fraud Settlement in Its History” according to the DoD:

American pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Inc. and its subsidiary Pharmacia & Upjohn Company Inc. … have agreed to pay $2.3 billion, the largest health care fraud settlement in the history of the Department of Justice, to resolve criminal and civil liability arising from the illegal promotion of certain pharmaceutical products, the Justice Department announced today. …

Pharmacia [Pfizer] & Upjohn Company has agreed to plead guilty to a felony violation of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act …. Pharmacia & Upjohn will also forfeit $105 million, for a total criminal resolution of $1.3 billion. (DoD. emphasis added)

Pfizer 2009, Déjà vu:

Can you trust a company which has pleaded guilty to criminal charges by the US Department of Justice of :”fraudulent marketing” and “felony violation of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act”

The 2020-2021 mRNA vaccine violations far surpass the health care fraud committed by Pfizer Inc in 2009.

Fraudulent marketing is an understatement: The mRNA vaccine announced by Pfizer and Moderna is based on an experimental gene editing mRNA technology which has a bearing on the human genome. The standard animal lab tests using mice or ferrets were not conducted. Pfizer “went straight to human “guinea pigs.”

Human tests began in late July and early August 2020. “Three months is unheard of for testing a new vaccine. Several years is the norm.”

Our thanks to Large and JIPÉM

This caricature by Large + JIPÉM explains our predicament:

Mouse No 1: “Are You Going to get Vaccinated”,

Mouse No. 2: Are You Crazy, They Haven’t finished the Tests on Humans”

The plan to develop a vaccine is profit driven. It is supported by corrupt governments serving the interests of Big Pharma. The US government had already ordered 100 million doses back in July and the EU is to purchase 300 million doses. It’s Big Money for Big Pharma, generous payoffs to corrupt politicians, at the expense of tax payers.

See Michel Chossudovsky, The 2020 Worldwide Corona Crisis: Destroying Civil Society, Engineered Economic Depression, Global Coup d’État and the “Great Reset” E-Book, February 26, 2021

So-called “emergency use” has been granted to Pfizer with a view to promoting a pharmaceutical product which is “experimental”, “unapproved” by the FDA and outright dangerous.

Legal Definitions are Turned Upside Down: The Transition from “Unapproved” to “Approved”

  • “unapproved” by the FDA,
  • “permitted” (under emergency use) by the FDA
  • and then “approved” by the US government’s health authorities resulting in numerous deaths and injuries

C.Y.A. and “Fraudulent Marketing”: The Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine is an “Unapproved Product” which is “Permitted for Use”

Georgia governor says he would ‘absolutely’ back Trump as 2024 nominee despite former president’s calls for his resignation

During an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto on Wednesday, Mr Kemp, 57, a Republican, was asked by the host if he would support Mr Trump if he was the GOP presidential nominee for the 2024 election.

“Absolutely, I’m going to support the nominee,” Mr Kemp immediately responded, adding: “As I said, again, I worked very hard for the president. I think his ideas … will be part of our party for a long time in the future.

“I mean, there’s a lot of great ideas out there. We’re not always going to get along, but I think the president deserves a lot of credit and he’s not going away.”

Mr Kemp’s comments came just three days after Mr Trump strongly suggested during the closing speech of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that he will run for president again in 2024.

Mr Trump also criticised Mr Kemp during an interview with conservative news outlet Newsmax following his address at the conference on Sunday, claiming that his support of the governor during his runoff election in 2018 was “an endorsement that hurt us.”

He claimed that Mr Kemp was in “in last place or just about in last place” at the time of his endorsement, adding: “I endorsed him, he ended up winning the election and he certainly was not very effective for the Republican Party, to put it nicely.”

Mr Trump has repeatedly criticised Mr Kemp in the months since 3 November’s national election, after he became the first Republican to lose Georgia in nearly 30 years when he was defeated by President Joe Biden.

Although Mr Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election in November, Mr Trump repeatedly falsely claimed that there was widespread voter fraud and pressured Mr Kemp into overruling the state’s results.

After Mr Kemp and Georgia secretary of state Brad Raffensperger refused Mr Trump’s demands, the then president repeatedly publicly criticised them and later called for the governor to resign.

Speaking to Fox News in November, Mr Trump said that he is “ashamed” that he endorsed Mr Kemp for governor in 2018, before then describing him as “hapless” the following day.

While in December, Mr Trump tweeted that Mr Kemp “should resign from office,” and called for the governor to face a primary challenge during a rally that was supposed to raise support for the Republican candidates in 6 January’s runoff Senate elections.

Mr Kemp tried to stay away from the public feud, labelling it a distraction from then Republican senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler’s campaigns for the crucial runoff elections in Georgia to decide what party had control of the Senate.

Speaking about Mr Trump’s calls for his resignation in late December, Mr Kemp said: “As far as me getting primaried, I could care less about that right now,” and added: “The biggest thing we all need to do, regardless of what you think about what’s going on in Georgia, we’ve got to support David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.”

Mr Perdue and Ms Loeffler went on to lose the primary election to Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and reverend Raphael Warnock, handing control of the Senate to the Democrats.

Ahead of visit to Iraq, Pope Francies says he will go as a ‘pilgrim of peace’

VATICAN CITY, Holy See (AFP) — On the eve of his historic trip to Iraq, Pope Francis paid tribute Thursday to those who have suffered from years of violence, saying he came as a “pilgrim of peace.”

In a video message, the 84-year-old offered his hand to “brothers and sisters of other religions,” but also highlighted the heavy toll paid by Iraq’s Christian communities, saying there had been “too many martyrs.”

“I long to meet you, to see your faces, to visit your land, ancient and extraordinary cradle of civilization,” the pope said.

“I come as a pilgrim, a penitent pilgrim to implore forgiveness and reconciliation from the Lord after years of war and terrorism.”

“I come as a pilgrim of peace in search of fraternity, animated by the desire to pray together and to walk together, also with the brothers and sisters of other religions,” he added.

The pope, making his first foreign trip since the coronavirus pandemic swept Europe a year ago, will arrive in Iraq on Friday before embarking on a packed schedule of events through to Sunday.

From central Baghdad to the Shiite shrine city of Najaf, welcome banners featuring his image and Arabic title “Baba al-Vatican” already dot the streets.

From Ur, the birthplace of the Prophet Abraham in the southern desert, to ravaged Christian towns in the north, roads are being paved and churches rehabilitated.

Among the most extraordinary moments of the trip will be his one-on-one meeting with Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani, the highly reclusive cleric, who is a top religious authority for many of the world’s Shiite Muslims.

Security, COVID fears

Francis is fulfilling the dream of a predecessor, John Paul II, by visiting Iraq — despite a rampaging coronavirus epidemic and an upsurge in violence.

The security challenges were highlighted Wednesday when a rocket attack hit a base hosting US-led coalition troops, which came after several weeks of escalating US-Iran tensions on Iraqi soil.

The pope said on Wednesday he was determined not to “disappoint” the Iraqi people.

But concerns over security and tight restrictions imposed to stop the spread of Covid-19 mean that most Iraqis will have to follow the trip on television.

Though the pope enjoys being among his faithful, crowds at his events have been strictly limited, while he will mostly travel in an armored, covered car.

Martyred Church

Iraq’s Christian community is one of the oldest and most diverse in the world, with Chaldeans and other Catholics making up around half, along with Armenian Orthodox, Protestants and others.

By 2003, when the US-led invasion toppled then-dictator Saddam Hussein, Christians made up around six percent of Iraq’s 25 million people.

But after years of bloodshed, its numbers have fallen to just 400,000 today.

The Argentine pope said he was “honored to meet a martyred Church” and thanked them for their faith.

There had been “too many martyrs,” he said, while survivors “have in your eyes the images of destroyed houses and desecrated churches, and in your hearts the wounds of loved ones left behind and homes abandoned.”

He said the Catholic Church that he leads “encourages you to go on.”

Francis also paid tribute to the minority Yazidi community, “who have suffered so much.”

Thousands of Yazidis were killed and women taken into sexual slavery when the Islamic State swept through Iraq in 2014.

In blow to Abbas, senior Fatah official to form separate bloc to run in election

Fatah Central Committee member Nasser al-Qidwa on Wednesday declared his support for a separate bloc to run in the scheduled Palestinian elections, in the latest blow to the unity of the West Bank’s ruling faction.

“I am in favor of forming an electoral slate within the framework of a broad democratic forum that includes various segments of society, not the Fatah movement alone,” al-Qidwa wrote on Twitter.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas issued a decree in mid-January ordering the Palestinians to head to elections. If held, they would be the first Palestinian national elections in 15 years. The first voting round, the legislative elections, is set to be held on May 22.

Many observers were skeptical that the Palestinians would actually head to elections, given years of failed electoral promises by the Palestinian leadership. But the suspicion is slowly growing in diplomatic circles that this time, it may actually happen.

Al-Qidwa and other activists call their new slate the National Democratic Forum. In a tweet, Al-Qidwa said he hoped that convicted Palestinian terrorist Marwan Barghouti “will stand at the head of it.”

Barghouti, who has yet to formally declare his candidacy, is currently serving five life sentences in an Israeli prison for masterminding terror attacks during the Second Intifada.

Al-Qidwa had previously called on Barghouti not to “hide from his responsibility” to get involved in the Palestinian legislative elections.

Al-Qidwa also called for former Gaza security chief Mohammad Dahlan’s faction, the Democratic Reform Current, to play a renewed role in Palestinian politics, including within Fatah itself. Dahlan, who was exiled from the West Bank in 2011, has long been at odds with the Ramallah-based Palestinian leadership.

“I want to say to the main Fatah faction: [Dahlan’s faction] has a place, and they are welcome as part of the reconciliations within Fatah and outside Fatah,” al-Qidwa reportedly said.

Palestinian leaders have repeatedly promised to hold elections since the last vote was held in 2006. Hamas swept the Palestinian parliament in a landslide victory over its Fatah rivals, who were riven by factional squabbles and widely seen as corrupt.

The terror group’s victory led to a fragile unity government between Fatah and Hamas. Following an international boycott, the unity government collapsed; the two rival Palestinian movements then conducted a bloody struggle for supremacy in Gaza.

Hamas again emerged triumphant, leading to the long-running rift in Palestinian politics. Fear and mistrust between the two factions — combined with a desire to avoid losing power — have torpedoed every feint toward elections over the past 15 years.

Much as in 2006, Abbas’s Fatah movement is deeply divided, and he faces rivals at every turn, including Barghouti and Dahlan. Barghouti enjoys broad popularity among the Palestinian public, while Dahlan has a loyal faction in Gaza and a powerful patron.

Al-Qidwa has also long been a critic of Abbas. He has worked at several foreign posts, including as the PA’s envoy to the United Nations, where he developed a reputation as an effective and capable diplomat.

In recent weeks, however, al-Qidwa’s criticism of the PA has become more strident. At a virtual conference streamed by Birzeit University in late February, al-Qidwa said the Palestinian political system needed to be changed, not only reformed.

“We need radical change in our political system, even as we struggle against Israeli actions,” al-Qidwa said.

Al-Qidwa called for Palestinians to find what he called “a third path” between the dichotomy of “armed struggle or negotiations with unending concessions” in which he claimed Palestinian politics found itself. Pressed for more details, he dodged.

In a phone call with The Times of Israel last week, Fatah Central Committee member Azzam al-Ahmad scoffed at al-Qidwa’s remarks that the Palestinian political regime needed fundamental change.

“Nasser is a part of the political system, and we have a strong relationship as members of the Central Committee,” al-Ahmad said in a phone call.

Should the vote take place, Fatah’s factional differences may have less impact than they did in 2006. In a concession by Hamas, the terror group assented to Fatah’s demand that a national popular vote would determine the division of seats in the Palestinian parliament.

In 2006, numerous Fatah candidates ran against one another in different districts, splitting the ticket. The internally disciplined Hamas ran only one candidate per district. The result was an electoral landslide by Hamas despite only a slight victory over Fatah in the popular vote.

Senior Palestinian Authority official Ahmad al-Majdalani told The Times of Israel that the new elections procedure would prevent a landslide by Hamas or any other faction.

“The new elections law prevents any side from achieving a majority in the legislative elections. Every faction will need to make alliances — either within the framework of the elections or afterward,” Majdalani said.

The Origin of the Northern Freeze 

Warnings by leading climate scientists regarding the high sensitivity of the atmosphere in response to abrupt compositional changes, such as near-doubling of greenhouse gas concentrations, are now manifest: According to Wallace Broecker, (the “father” of climate science) “The paleoclimate record shouts out to us that, far from being self-stabilizing, the Earth’s climate system is an ornery beast which overreacts to even small nudges, and humans have already given the climate a substantial nudge”. As stated by James Zachos“The Paleocene hot spell should serve as a reminder of the unpredictable nature of climate”.

As snowstorms the Beast from the East (2018) and Storm Darcy (2021) sweep the northern continents, reaching Britain and as far south as Texas and Greece, those who still question the reality and consequences of global climate change, including in governments, may rejoice as if they have a new argument to question global warming.

However, as indicated by the science, these fronts result from a weakened circum-Arctic jet stream boundary due to decreased temperature polarity between the Arctic Circle and high latitude zones in Europe, Russia and North America. The reduced contrast allows migration of masses of cold Arctic air southward and of tropical air northward across the weakened jet stream boundary, indicating a fundamental shift in the global climate pattern (Figure 1).

Figure 1. (A and B) Extensions from the Arctic polar zone into North America and Eutope; (C) weakening of the Arctic jet stream boundary (NOAA)

The weakening of the Arctic boundary is a part of the overall shift of climate zones toward the poles in both hemispheres, documented in detail in Europe (Figure 2). Transient cooling pauses are projected as a result of the flow of cold ice meltwater from Greenland and Antarctica into the oceans, leading to stadial cooling intervals.

Figure 2. Migration of climate zones in Europe during 1981-2010 and under +2°C. Faint pink areas represent advanced warming. (A, left) Agro‐climate zonation of Europe based on growing season length (GSL) and active temperature sum (ATS) obtained as an ensemble median from five different climate model simulations during the baseline period (1981–2010). (B, right) Ensemble median spatial patterns of agro-climate zones migration under 2°C global surface warming according to model RCP8.5. Gray areas represent regions where no change with respect to the baseline period is simulated.

A combination of ice sheet melting and the flow of melt water into the oceans on the one hand, and ongoing warming of tropical continental zones on the other hand, are likely to lead to the following:

  • Storminess due to collisions of cold and warm air masses;
  • As the ice sheets continue to melt, the cold meltwater enhances lower temperatures at shallow ocean levels, as modelled by Hansen et al. (2016) and Bonselaer et al (2018) (Figure 3A), as contrasted with warming at deeper ocean levels over large parts of the oceans. This transiently counterbalances the effects of global warming over the continents arising from the greenhouse effect;
  • The above processes herald chaotic climate effects, in particular along continental margins and island chains.
Figure 3. A. 2080–2100 meltwater-induced sea-air temperature anomalies relative to the standard RCP8.5 ensemble (Bronselaer et al., 2018), indicating marked cooling of parts of the southern oceans. Hatching indicates where the anomalies are not significant at the 95% level; B. Negative temperature anomalies through the 21st-22nd centuries signifying stadial cooling intervals (Hansen et al., 2016); C. A model of Global warming for 2096, where cold ice melt water occupies large parts of the North Atlantic and circum-Antarctica, raises sea level by about 5 meters and decreases global temperature by -0.33°C (Hansen et al., 2016).

The extreme rate at which the global warming and the shift of climate zones are taking place virtually within a period less than one generation-long, faster than major past warming events such as at the Paleocene-Eocene boundary 56 million years ago, renders the term “climate change” hardly appropriate, since what we are looking at is a sudden and abrupt event.

According to Giger (2021) “Tipping points could fundamentally disrupt the planet and produce abrupt change in the climate. A mass methane release could put us on an irreversible path to full land-ice melt, causing sea levels to rise by up to 30 meters. We must take immediate action to reduce global warming and build resilience with these tipping points in mind.”

Computer modelling does not always capture the sensitivity, complexity and feedbacks of the atmosphere-ocean-land system as observed from paleoclimate studies. Many models portray gradual or linear responses of the atmosphere to compositional variations, overlooking self-amplifying effects and transient reversals associated with melting of the ice sheets and cooling of the oceans by the flow of ice melt.

According to Bonselaer et al. (2018) “The climate metrics that we consider lead to substantially different future climate projections when accounting for the effects of meltwater from the Antarctic Ice Sheet. These differences have consequences for climate policy and should be taken into account in future IPCC reports, given recent observational evidence of increasing mass loss from Antarctica” and “However, the effect on climate is not included (by the IPCC) and will not be in the upcoming CMIP6 experimental design. Similarly, the effects of meltwater from the Greenland Ice Sheet have so far not been considered, and could lead to further changes in simulated future climate”. Depending on future warming the effect of Antarctic ice meltwater may extend further, possibly becoming global.

By contrast to ocean cooling, further to NASA’s reported mean land-ocean temperature rise of +1.18°C in March 2020 above pre-industrial temperatures, relative to the 1951-1980 baseline, large parts of the continents, including central Asia, west Africa eastern South America and Australia are warming toward mean temperatures of +2°C and higher. The contrast between cooling of extensive ocean regions and warming of the continental tropics is likely to lead to extreme storminess, in particular along continent-ocean interfaces.

The late 20th century to early 21st century global greenhouse gas levels and regional warming rates have reached a large factor to an order of magnitude faster than warming events of past geological and mass extinction events, with major implications for the nature and speed of extreme weather events.

For these reasons the term “climate change” for the current extreme warming, which is reaching +1.5°C over the continents and more than +3°C over the Arctic over a period shorter than one century, no longer applies.

The world is looking at an extremely rapid shift in the climatic conditions that have allowed civilization to emerge.

France chides Austria, Denmark for coordinating with Israel on virus vaccines

PARIS, France — France has criticized a push by Austria and Denmark to coordinate with Israel on developing new COVID-19 shots, as EU unity frays even further over its troubled vaccine rollout.

Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz announced the Israeli partnership on Monday, saying the European Medicines Agency (EMA) was “too slow in approving vaccines,” leaving the bloc vulnerable to supply bottlenecks at pharmaceutical companies.

But France’s foreign ministry defended the agency and insisted that “the most effective solution for meeting our vaccination needs must remain within a European framework.”

“This is what guarantees the solidarity among member states that is more essential than ever,” it said in a statement late Wednesday.

European officials are under pressure to step up vaccination drives that have lagged behind those of other countries, including Israel and Britain, which approved coronavirus vaccines several weeks before the EMA.

“We should not be solely dependent on the EU anymore,” Kurz said ahead of a trip to Israel with his Danish counterpart Mette Frederiksen on Thursday to agree on common production of future vaccines and cooperation on research.

Austria’s neighbors Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic have already bypassed the EMA to approve Russian and Chinese coronavirus vaccines.

France’s Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian acknowledged on Wednesday “significant” shortcomings in the EU’s vaccination policies, but criticized what he called “attempts at secession.”

European nations should instead pool their resources to increase vaccine production capacity in Europe, “something we are in the process of doing,” the ministry said in its statement.

“The approval process for the European market has also been reviewed, with the introduction of ’emergency procedures’ for vaccines targeting new variants,” it added.

UTJ head says party won’t join a coalition that doesn’t revoke conversion ruling

United Torah Judaism party chief Moshe Gafni said Thursday that his party won’t join a coalition unless it finds a way to nullify a High Court ruling recognizing conversions to Judaism in Israel through the Reform and Conservative movements.

“We will not enter a coalition that does not have a legal solution for the High Court’s ruling on conversion,” Gafni told Army Radio.

The High Court of Justice ruled Monday that the Jewish state will be required to recognize non-Orthodox conversions to Judaism performed in Israel for citizenship purposes.

The bombshell ruling dents the ultra-Orthodox-dominated Rabbinate’s control over conversions in the country and was denounced by right-wing religious politicians, who vowed to advance legislation in the next parliament to overturn it, and by the chief rabbis of Israel.

The ultra-Orthodox Shas party has also said it would not join a future coalition that was not committed to overturning or legislating against the ruling.

Israel is holding its fourth election in two years on March 23. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will need the support of both ultra-Orthodox parties in order to have a chance of forming a coalition.

Gafni also dismissed criticism of a campaign video from his party that disparagingly said that non-Orthodox denominations would recognize dogs wearing kippot as Jewish.

“I would have made much worse clips,” Gafni said.

“For instance, take a huge group of immigrants in south Tel Aviv and show what happens if their Reform conversion is recognized,” Gafni said, referring to the foreign worker and asylum seeker community.

In the video, a series of photos were shown featuring dogs wearing the traditional Jewish kippa on their heads and wrapped in a tallit, or prayer shawl. The images were apparently drawn from so-called Bark Mitzvah events held by some US Reform and Conservative Jews for their pet dogs.

Shas MK Moshe Arbel condemned the video in an interview with the Kan public broadcaster, saying there iwa widespread racism in the ultra-Orthodox world.

“I did not like it. There is huge racism across the entire Haredi public,” Arbel said. “When a Sephardi girl is not accepted to a seminary or to Beis Yaakov because her grandmother came from Morocco, is it not racism?”

Critics charge the schools maintain non-official quotas of Sephardic students, stemming from endemic racism against those whose families originate in Arab or Muslim lands, at the hands of an Ashkenazi, or European, elite.

Public Security Minister Amir Ohana of the Likud party also condemned the video. “No one should be compared to a dog, certainly not our dear brothers. I am outraged at this comparison,” Ohana told Army Radio.

But Environmental Protection Minister Gila Gamliel said that it was not the court’s place to make decisions on conversions.

“I am in favor of all streams of Judaism having the ability to express their Judaism in Israel, but this should not be done in the form of High Court rulings. We need to be brave enough to make decisions,” Gamliel said.

The justices specified on Monday that they had previously withheld issuing a ruling to allow the state to handle the matter, but the state had failed to do so.

Lauren Boebert criticised for calling Equality Act ‘supremacy of gays’

Controversial freshman lawmaker Lauren Boebert has been criticised online following her recent remarks about a bill banning discrimination of LGBT+ groups, calling the act “supremacy of gays”.

On Wednesday, the Colorado representative appeared on Real America’s Voice, a right-leaning media network, where she lashed out at the Equality Act.

Ms Boebert claimed that “there is nothing about equality” in the act, adding: “If anything, it’s supremacy—of gays, lesbians” before pausing and using a slur against transgender people.

The US House of Representatives passed the bill last week which will ban discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

The act is a civil rights bill that would outlaw LGBT+ discrimination in the same way racial and sex discrimination is already outlawed at the federal level.

The lawmaker quickly received backlash online for her comments from critics and journalists, with many condemning the remarks.

“This is some f***** up (almost incomprehensible) s*** right here,” Daily Beast Editor at Large Molly Jong-Fast said.

One user commented: “There nothing worse than when people use the constitution to justify bigotry.”

“When you’re accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression,” Adam Rifkin said.

The Equality Act is facing a tough path through the 50-50 Senate before it can make its way to President Joe Biden’s desk.

“I hope it will not be lost in the politics of the Senate,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said on Thursday shortly before the bill’s passage.

Ms Boebert, an unabashed loyalist of former President Donald Trump, has often stoked controversy with her far-right views during her campaign and first months in office.

During her first month, the 34-year-old restaurant owner has argued for the right to bring firearms onto the House floor and voted to overturn President Joe Biden’s election.

Other prominent Republican lawmakers, such as Utah senator Mitt Romney, have stated opposition to the bill, with the senator citing the absence of “religious liberty protections” in its language.

Senator Susan Collins of Maine, the lone Republican co-sponsor of the bill in 2019, has redacted her support this time around, saying a compromise had not been reached on the legislation since it was first proposed.

Video shows moment balcony railing collapses at Bolivia university, killing seven students

Video footage has captured the tragic moment when students thronging the fourth floor balcony of a university in Bolivia plummeted to their deaths after the railing gave way.

Seven students were killed and five others injured at the Public University of El Alto, second-largest city in Bolivia. The incident occurred as dozens of students crammed onto the balcony to enter a lecture hall for an assembly on Tuesday.

The disturbing video footage, captured by a bystander moment before the students fell, shows them jostling while leaning against the railing which collapsed due to the pressure of the crowd. A number of them then went crashing down to the concrete floor while a few were pulled up by those still on the balcony.

A student in blue jacket was saved by other students as she dangled upside down as her colleagues grab her shoes to rescue her.

The cause of death was identified as “multiple defenestration trauma,” Bolivian police chief Colonel Jhonny Aguilera told reporters.

An investigation has been ordered into the incident and the woman who was rescued would be questioned to find details.

Those dead and injured are aged between 20 to 27.

“From this accident, seven have died and five are in a critical state, some of them stabilised,” health minister Jayson Auza said.

“Our deepest condolences to the people of El Alto and to the suffering families. We await the prompt clarification of the facts,” Bolivian President Luis Arce said on Twitter.

According to Bolivia’s Special Force to Fight Crime, the students who lost their lives were identified as Raúl Cadena, Genio Mamani, Saúl Mamani, Daniel Rodríguez, Anahí Chipana, Loida Sosa and Tania Roque.

The bodies have been handed over to the families without delay for last rights, the police said.

Dutch court kicks out case against father who isolated family for years

A Dutch court ruled on Thursday that a deeply religious father who kept some of his children isolated from the outside world for years in a remote farmhouse can’t stand trial on charges including child sexual abuse because he has been incapacitated by a stroke.

Prosecutors asked the court to drop the case last month because the 68-year-old suspect, Gerrit-Jan van Dorsten, was considered not fit to stand trial.

It was ruled on Thursday that a 2016 stroke had affected the father’s ability to communicate to the extent continuing the case would breach his fair trial rights. 

In a video statement announcing the ruing, court spokesman Marcel Wolters said: “He doesn’t sufficiently understand what is happening in the courtroom.”

The case made global headlines when authorities discovered the man had been living with his six children in a farmhouse in the eastern Netherlands for six years. The case came to light when one of the man’s sons alerted the authorities after escaping the farmhouse.

Prosecuted portrayed the father as a deeply religious man who believed his family was “chosen by God” who used physical beatings and other punishments to keep his children from succumbing to what he considered malign outside influences. 

The six youngest children were kept in seclusion since birth and had not had their births registered or been to school, as required by Dutch law.

The six children who were kept on the farm are now all young adults. Three older siblings had earlier left the family’s isolated life. Their mother died in 2004.

If you, or anyone you know, have been a victim of sexual assault, help is available. Visit the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) website or contact RAINN’s National Helpline at 1-800-656-HOPE (4673).

New Mexico prison officer facing dismissal for refusing vaccine takes county to court

A prison officer in New Mexico is taking a county to court over a requirement for him to take a coronavirus vaccine, or face being sacked.

In a complaint filed in a federal court on 26 February, officer Isaac Legaretta disputed the legality of a Dona Ana County directive for employees to take vaccines approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Mr Legaretta, according to the complaint, claims the county was violating federal law, and cited the emergency authorisation process used by the FDA to approve vaccines for Covid-19.

The case noted that clinical trials, which officials will use to decide whether to fully license vaccines, are still underway — and could take two years to carry-out.

All three vaccines currently being distributed across the US have been approved for emergency use (EMU) by the FDA, which the body is allowed to do during the public health emergency brought by Covid-19.

Nor have Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer or Moderna — the three coronavirus vaccines approved for use in the US — applied for full approval from the FDA, the regulatory body for vaccines.

Mr Legaretta’s complaint also argues that federal law — or civil liberties under The Bill of Rights — preempts state laws or local requirements such as the directive for all Dona Ana County employees to take vaccines.

“[The] defendants’ failure to comply with the federal law clearly is an obstacle to the purpose of the federal law, which is to allow people to not be compelled to take an unapproved drug or vaccine,” the complaint argues.

The officer is also seeking an injunction against county officials from firing him before a ruling is issued on the directive, a lawyer, N. Ana Garner, added.

Responding to the complaint, Dona Ana County attorney Nelson Goodin said the county stood behind its policy.

He also cited FDA guidance on employers being able to require vaccines for staff, with exceptions for religious or medical reasons.

Mr Goodin said a handful of waivers have already been issued for county employees but most have been vaccinated.

“We’re doing our best to protect the inmates in our facility, we’re doing our best to protect the employees who work in that facility and coworkers as well,” said Mr Goodwin.

“That’s the driving force — provide a safe workplace and safety for inmates who don’t have the choice to go home and quarantine.”

The county currently has the highest concentration of Covid-19 cases in the state, with 152.16 per 100,000 testing positive for the virus, according to the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.

Loyalists pull support for NI peace deal over Brexit rules

Outlawed Loyalist paramilitary groups in Northern Ireland say they are temporarily withdrawing their support for the historic 1998 peace accord because of the disruption caused by new post-Brexit trade rules

The groups say they are not planning a return to violence, but the announcement underscores rising tensions over the trade deal agreed between Britain and the European Union days before the U.K. made an economic split from the 27-nation bloc on Dec. 31.

The Loyalist Communities Council, which represents several banned paramilitary groupings, said in a letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson that the new trade rules undermined the basis of Northern Ireland’s 1998 Good Friday accord, and they would no longer support it until there was “unfettered access for goods, services, and citizens throughout the United Kingdom.”

The letter said opposition to the measures would remain “peaceful and democratic.”

Jeffrey Donaldson, a lawmaker with Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party, said Thursday that there was “no sense that loyalist paramilitaries were going to revert to violence in opposition to the Northern Ireland Protocol.”

The U.K.-EU trade deal establishes tariff- and quota-free exchange of goods but sets up veterinary and customs checks and other obstacles to the previously seamless commerce between Britain and the bloc. Contentiously, it also imposes new checks on some trade between Northern Ireland and the rest of the U.K.

Northern Ireland has special status because it shares a border with EU member state Ireland. An open Irish border has helped underpin the peace process built on the Good Friday accord, which ended decades of violence involving Irish republicans, British loyalists and U.K. armed forces, in which more than 3,000 people died.

But the new checks have unsettled the delicate political balance in Northern Ireland, a part of the U.K. where some people identify as British and some as Irish. They are opposed by pro-British Unionists, who say they drive a wedge between Northern Ireland and the rest of the U.K.

Northern Ireland authorities temporarily halted veterinary checks and withdrew border staff from ports last month after threatening graffiti appeared referring to port workers as targets.

Northern Ireland businesses, meanwhile, say they are struggling to cope with the new red tape. To ease the burden, Britain announced Wednesday it was unilaterally extending until October a temporary “grace period” waiving checks on agri-food goods entering Northern Ireland. It had been due to end March 31.

That drew a rebuke from the EU. European Commission Vice President Maros Šefčovič, joint head of a U.K.-EU committee on Northern Ireland, said it was “a violation” of the legally binding Brexit divorce agreement.

“This also constitutes a clear departure from the constructive approach that has prevailed up until now,” Šefčovič said in a statement.

The U.K. government insisted it was merely taking “temporary technical steps … to provide more time for businesses such as supermarkets and parcel operators to adapt to and implement the new requirements.”

But Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said the U.K.’s behavior showed the EU was dealing with a partner “that they simply cannot trust.”

White House Suddenly Cuts Virtual Event Feed After Biden Says He’s ‘Happy To Take Questions’

Joe Biden


A few eyebrows were raised on Wednesday when the White House abruptly cut the feed of a virtual event after President Biden said he was “happy to take questions” from Democratic lawmakers. 

Biden said he would be “happy” to field live questions at the tail-end of the ‘Virtual Issues Conference‘, but was propmptly cut off when the White House inexplicably dropped the video feed.

Accompanied by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the House Democratic Caucus, Biden addressed lawmakers on the topics of Covid relief and the ongoing vaccine rollout. He wrapped up by calling on Democrats to help “restore faith” in the government. 

He then seemed ready to take questions.

I’d be happy to take questions if that’s what I’m supposed to do, Nance,” Biden told Pelosi, “Whatever you want me to do.

RT reports: But after a brief pause, the feed was brusquely taken offline.

While Biden appeared somewhat confused about whether a live Q&A was in store for the event, critics have suggested the White House ended the feed to keep him from ad-libbing his answers, as he’s been prone to gaffes during unscripted – and sometimes scripted – statements in the past.

Upholding or Upending Accountability and Justice

The 46th Session of UNHRC now in progress has generated heated comments and discussions in Sri Lanka and elsewhere among Tamils as well as the Council is readying to pass a final Resolution against Sri Lanka after five tiring years which witnessed 3 Resolutions earlier.[ 30/1. 34/1, 40/1]. It is a distressing fact to note Sri Lanka’s non-implementation of most of the crucial Recommendations pertaining to Accountability, and Justice. The expected final Resolution comes in the wake of Sri Lanka’s rejecting and withdrawal from compliance of all the Resolutions and their Recommendations. Still Sri Lanka remains as a defiant member of UNHRC while committed to observe and comply with the provisions  of UNHRC Charter and pledging several times to implement its Recommendations.

In the current Session on February 23rd the Foreign Minister of Sri Lanka Mr. Dinesh Gunawardene as usual exploded with rhetoric peppered with naked lies while levelling much and often heard repeated wild accusations against member countries who are sponsoring the final Resolution which they are duty bound to submit as Core members discharging their UNHRC universal obligations.

It is stomach turning to note Sri Lanka’s flagrant rejection and deserting its oral and written pledges to UNHRC and UN Office on several occasions while reinforcing their commitments to honor the UNHRC Recommendations.

Foreign Minister Dinesh Gunawardene’s statement in defiance of Sri Lanka is plainly contemptuous and slings mud on countries who are finalizing the Resolution brandishing  them as supreme rulers of the Council lwhile casting slurs on the credibility of several Rapporteurs, Human Rights Organizations and independent human rights activists including former UN Secretary General Ban-ki-Moon and former UN High Commissioners for Human Rights.

The Foreign Minister confirms the usual stand of Sri Lanka in defence of its blood stained record of human rights violations. He has stated that:-

  1. The armed forces of Sri Lanka are heroic for defeating the LTTE
  2. Terrorism of LTTE was ended
  3. Hegemonic forces are now in collusion against Sri Lanka in bringing an unsubstantiated Resolution against Sri Lanka.
  4. The commitments on the Resolution 30/1 also co-sponsored by Sri Lanka are not deliverable and they are not in conformity with the constitution in Sri Lanka
  5. We will remain engaged in the UN system including UNHRC
  6. Elements working against Sri Lanka intend to table another Resolution on the basis of OHCHR Reports in domestic matters
  7. UNHRC must not depend on hearsay or oral one angled double source.

When dealing with each of the above substanceless assertions, one would see them as hiding the whole pumpkin in a bowl of rice. –  a well known proverb –  His assertions are plainly concocted and woven with tissue of lies and contradictions insulting the intelligentsia, erudites, international observers and jurists. The first assertion of heroic armed forces is partly true as the alleged heroism was partly contributed by the military and logistical assistance given by 22 countries as admitted by the former President Mahinada Rajapakshe. Also one would remember the ‘heroic acts’ performed by a group of so called disciplined soldiers who indulged in rapes, tortures and killing of captured and/or surrendered prisoners. The notorious incident involved ‘Isaiperiya. [well known journalist who was raped and killed ending with celebrations by the soldiers who participated in this ugly war crime. The secomd assertion that terrorism was ended was not true and correct as  root cause of alleged terrorism is perpetrated by Sri Lankan scurity forces while  unleasing of state terrorism against Tamils since 1956 [followed in 1958, 1971, 1977, 1983 & Genocidal war from 2006-2009] While alleged terrorism by militants is an offshoot of non-violent struggle against the state to obtain justice, equality and independence of the battered Tamils. Instead of protecting its own citizens Sri Lanka employed state terrorism against its own citizens which is not the behaviour and action of a democratic state but only by a brutal dictator who is the ruling  the country.

The statement of UN High Commissioner Madam Michelle Bachelet is worth quoting. She calls on “UNHRC to explore new ways to advance various types of accountability” and points to the “Warning signs that past patterns of violations could be repeated. The third assertion described USA, UK, Germany etc. as hegemonic forces acting in collusion on an unsubstantiated Resolution. This is like an ostrich burying its head under the sand believing that the whole world is dark. It is well known that heaps of Reports by UN Officials including UN High Commissioners who visited Sri Lanka are in the custody of UNHRC containing irrebuttable evidence which included statements of victims, documents, ground evidences, correspondences, videos, photos and satellite imagery analysis, for example killing of Isaiperiya and others stripped and naked prisoners is one many several videos and photos seen by the whole world. As such the assertion that UNHRC depends on hearsay or oral one angled source is a frivolous statement which will not be bought by anyone.

The next assertion is that the Recommendations  in 30/1 Resolution are not deliverable for example to state that the Recommendation calling for “Individual prosecutions are not deliverable is an affront to the concept of accountability, justice, and rule of law for it is largely true as far as Sri Lanka is concerned because it follows the entrenched culture of impunity from 1956.

The next assertion is that the Recommendations are not in conformity with the constitution of Sri Lanka. However  Sri Lanka has opted to set up an independent local investigative mechanism headed by a Special Counsel in conformation with its constitution. As expected, so far Sri Lanka has not taken any steps to set up this mechanism and the truth is that it will never be set up.

The assertion that the Resolution is based on domestic matters is illogical and unacceptable as Sri Lanka having subscribed to UN and UNHRC Charters including various UN Conventions like the Convention on Enforced Disappearances, pledging to observe them, it is just simple chicanery to deny or discard their commitments to human rights laws and international humanitarian laws. Viewing this position, human rights and their violations are not domestic matters for Sri Lanka due to its membership in UN, UNHRC and accessions  to several UN Conventions. The defence of violation of sovereignty is also not sustainable as 30/1 Resolution. “Reaffirms   its commitments to the sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity of Sri Lanka.” To sum up, the quality and validity of Sri Lanka’s Foreign Minister statement is simply unconvincing and defies sense and logic devoid of any subsistence..

The contents of the Council’s corrected new Resolution leave much to be desired for the victims and human rights activists  who have been pressing for a much stronger and demanding Resolution against Sri Lanka. The glaring omission is the referral to the International Criminal Court as justice and accountability for war crimes etc.committed by the Sri Lanka’s security forces is only possible through the ICC as Sri Lanka has vowed to protect its security forces from any prosecution internally or externally. With this crucial omission, Sri Lanka has succeeded in crossing its major hurdle though it is still possible for the affected victims to approach the ICC through a member country which can agree to take a complaint to the ICC Special Prosecutor by submitting comprehensive reliable evidence,by way of documents, statements, witnesses and victim’s direct evidences. It could be a difficult task but not an impossible one.The Core members should nevertheless at least consider the Recommendation of Universal Jurisdiction along with Magnitsky Act sanctions leaving each UN member state to opt for one of the above measures.  In this respect, USA has set up an example by banning Army Commander Shevindra de Silva’s visit to USA and President Joe Bidens’ proposed actions against alleged killers of Jamal Khashoggi are infusing hopes for victims of human rights and warning to rogue countries who indulged and are indulging  in human rights violations. Similarly President Gotabaya during a meeting with former US Ambassador At Aarge for Aar Crimes Stephen Rapp in 2012 stated that “I KILLED THEM’ ‘I KILLED THEM’ referring to the  killings of more than hundreds of  LTTE cadres who surrendered to the security forces in 2009. By making these statements, he has designated himself as a ‘War Criminal”. It is puzzling to note the International Community including UN”s continuing deadly silence by not taking any action in this matter. If he is let off, then it can only be considered as an acquiescence with bestowing of impunity for the confessed commission of a horrible war crime by the President.

All in all International Organization  where the war victims can obtain some relief through its forceful recommendations for follow up actions by the UN and or Security Council.

In this respect, the recent comments of UN Special Rapporteur Pablo de Greiff who stated “UNHRC will not be able to deliver anything for the Tamil victims and also exerted them to seek alternative measures for their grievances.” are worth quoting.

To sum up, a Resolution incorporating the Recommendations of UN HIGH Commissioner for Human Rights Madam Michelle Bachelet would have delivered accountability and justice for the victims. Instead a diluted and shredded Resolution will only go to protect the war criminals and shielding Sri Lanka while encouraging it to continue and possibly expand its human rights violations in all walks of life in Sri Lanka with a President accused of war crimes is controlling the legislature, judiciary and executive exercising dictatorial powers under the 20th Amendment to the constitution.

For some unexplained reasons, the UNHRC Resolutions and also the word ‘GENOCIDE’ which withno inch of doubt satisfies the request of its definition in the UN Convention 1948. In view of the above circumstances. It appears that certain the victimized Tamils are constrained for a long haul under a ‘LOCKED DOWN’ while Sri Lanka succeeds by employing its usual tactics of  “ Delay, Distract, Dilute, Deny and Defeat” any or all actions of UNHRC and UN.

Lord Buddah’s teachings of ‘MAY ALL BEING BE SAFE, FREE FROM SUFFERINGS AND BE HAPPY are followed in Sri Lanka as ‘LIVE WITH FEAR, INSECURITY AND WORRIES”.
