The hope of American liberals

August 29th, 2014 No comments
“Echoing Benjamin Nentayahu (and Hillary Clinton), Elizabeth Warren’s clear position is that Israel bears none of the blame for any of this. Or, to use her words, “when Hamas puts its rocket launchers next to hospitals, next to schools, they’re using their civilian population to protect their military assets.

School of Arab dictators

August 29th, 2014 No comments
“Four reigning Arab monarchs are graduates of Sandhurst and its affiliated colleges – King Abdullah of Jordan, King Hamad of Bahrain, Sheikh Tamim, Emir of Qatar, and Sultan Qaboos of Oman. Past monarchs include Sheikh Saad, Emir of Kuwait, and Sheikh Hamad, Emir of Qatar. Sandhurst’s links have continued from the time when Britain was the major colonial power in the Gulf.” Yes, but the BBC does not tell you that NOT ONE of those potentates actually went through the normal course at the school but that the school–for large sums of cash–prepares special short and less rigorous programs for the royal Arab brats.

New Turkish cabinet spells little policy shift, Erdogan stays dominant

August 29th, 2014 No comments

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu announces his new cabinet in AnkaraBy Gulsen Solaker and Nick Tattersall ANKARA (Reuters) – Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu kept key members of Turkey's economic management team in place and named Ankara's point man on Europe as foreign minister in a new cabinet on Friday, moves signalling President Tayyip Erdogan's continued domination. Erdogan, who had dominated politics as prime minister since 2003, was sworn in on Thursday as Turkey's first popularly-elected president, cementing his position as its most powerful leader of recent times. Erdogan is likely to retain influence over the new team, with his former aide Yalcin Akdogan and Numan Kurtulmus, the deputy chairman of the ruling AK Party and another close ally, both named as deputy prime ministers.

FILE - In this June 6, 2014 file picture persons walk with shopping bags in Hamburg, Germany. A closely-watched survey shows economic expectations among German consumers have "completely collapsed" over concerns about the conflicts in Iraq, Israel and Ukraine.
