  • Reports: Israeli PM's aides break quarantine after US visit

    Golocal247.com news

    Two of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's senior aides broke quarantine regulations after returning from an official visit to Washington last week, Israeli media reported Monday. The breaches of health regulations by senior officials — which came as the country entered its second nationwide lockdown — were the latest cases of Israeli leaders and officials not abiding by the rules they have set for the public to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The Israeli delegation landed in Tel Aviv on Wednesday and was required to quarantine for a minimum of five days following last week's ceremony at the White House normalizing ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

    Golocal247.com news

    An enormous wildfire that churned through mountains northeast of Los Angeles and into the Mojave Desert was still threatening homes on Monday, but officials said calmer winds could help crews corral the flames. At 165 square miles (427 square kilometers), the Bobcat Fire is one of the largest ever in Los Angeles County and it has burned for more than two weeks. Erratic winds that drove flames into the community of Juniper Hills over the weekend had died down, said U.S. Forest Service fire spokesman Larry Smith.

  • Saudi Arabia to launch app for Mecca pilgrims amid virus

    Golocal247.com news

    Saudi Arabia on Monday released new details on how it plans to gradually allow Muslims back to Islam's holiest site in Mecca to perform the smaller, year-round pilgrimage, which has been suspended for the past seven months due to the coronavirus. Hajj Minister Muhammad Benten said the kingdom will launch an online application that allows citizens, residents of Saudi Arabia and visitors to apply and reserve a specific time and date in which they can perform the pilgrimage, known as “umrah,” to avoid crowding and maintain social-distancing guidelines. The kingdom held a dramatically downsized, symbolic hajj pilgrimage in July due to concerns that it could easily have become a global super-spreader event for the virus.

  • Navalny says nerve agent was found 'in and on' his body

    Golocal247.com news

    Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny demanded Monday that Russia return the clothes he was wearing on the day he fell into a coma in Siberia, calling it “a crucial piece of evidence” in the nerve agent poisoning he is being treated for at a German hospital. In a blog post Monday, Navalny said the Novichok nerve agent was found “in and on” his body, and said the clothes taken off him when he was hospitalized in Siberia a month ago after collapsing on a Russian flight are “very important material evidence.” Navalny, Russian President Vladimir Putin's fiercest critic, fell ill on a domestic flight to Moscow on Aug. 20, was brought to a hospital in the Siberian city of Omsk and was transferred to Germany for treatment two days later.

    Lebanon's president said Monday that the crisis-hit country could be going to “hell” if a new government was not formed, suggesting it would require a “miracle” for that to happen at this point. The stark warning comes as the country struggles to contain a spiraling economic and financial crisis that threatens to nose-dive further in the coming weeks, as well as concerns of unrest in the fragile country also witnessing a surge in coronavirus cases and deaths. In a televised address, President Michel Aoun criticized his political allies, the Shiite groups Hezbollah and Amal, for insisting to hold on to the Finance Ministry portfolio in any new government and on naming the Shiite ministers in the Cabinet.

    Hundreds of memorials glorifying the Confederacy had been erected by the time Marie Bankhead Owen built what may have been the grandest: The Alabama Department of Archives and History, which cataloged a version of the past that was favored by many Southern whites and all but excluded Black people. Owen used taxpayer money to turn the department into an overstuffed Confederate attic promoting the idea that the South’s role in the Civil War was noble rather than a fight to maintain slavery. “If history is to serve the present, it must offer an honest assessment of the past,” Director Steve Murray and trustees said in a “statement of recommitment.”

  • HR McMaster was 'surprised and disappointed' at Trump claim Putin didn't interfere in election

    Golocal247.com news

    Former national security adviser said he and others told Trump he was denying Russian meddling in 2016 ‘when we know it’s incontrovertible’HR McMaster was not trying to save the world from Donald Trump when he became his second national security adviser, the retired general said in his first interview to promote his new book – if his second since leaving the White House.“It was my duty to help the president come to his own decisions,” McMaster told CBS 60 Minutes on Sunday night, setting himself apart from other White House aides and a string of senior military figures, including former defense secretary James Mattis, who have publicly criticised the president.But McMaster did criticise aspects of foreign policy including the pursuit of peace talks with the Taliban in Afghanistan and rejected Trump’s claim that climate change is a hoax. Asked if his experience told him Trump “might make a decision, but it’s not likely to stick”, McMaster said: “Well, yeah, that’s exactly what was my experience.”McMaster also described how he reacted with “surprise, disappointment, disbelief” when in 2017 Trump told reporters he believed Vladimir Putin when he denied interfering in the 2016 US election.“Every time he sees me,” Trump said then of the Russian president, “he says, ‘I didn’t do that,’ and I really believe that when he tells me that. He means it.”“Well,” said McMaster, “my reaction was one of surprise, disappointment, disbelief.”McMaster said he and other advisers “had a conversation with the president afterwards, we said, ‘Your answer to that question will be misconstrued as a complete denial of Russian meddling when we know it’s incontrovertible. It’s just, it’s just a fact.’”Trump did retract his statement – a rare occurrence – but he has cast doubt on intelligence community conclusions and agreed with Putin since.McMaster also told CBS how the hashtag FireMcMaster, which proliferated on social media before Trump fired him, was partly fueled by Russia.“It was a combination of … these sorts of people who saw me as an impediment to their agenda. And it was a campaign that started domestically, but then was reinforced by an adversary, reinforced by the Kremlin.“[The Russians] were full participants in it, but I don’t think they started it. But many people who operate, you know, in this sort of venomous, you know, social media environment and bloggers and the pseudo-media. They’re the ones who initiated the campaign.”Regarding Afghanistan, McMaster said Trump was “in effect … partnering with the Taliban against, in many ways, the Afghan government. And so, I think that it’s an unwise policy”.Trump aims to reduce troops in Afghanistan to around 5,000 and has announced the withdrawal of 12,000 from Germany.“I think these are both big mistakes,” McMaster said. “I think they’re mistakes because they’re consistent with, I think, this sentiment that you see really across both political parties for retrenchment or withdrawal from complex problem sets overseas.“We lack confidence because we haven’t had, I think, sound strategies and policies in place and Americans are losing faith in these efforts. I don’t blame them.”McMaster’s new book, Battlegrounds, is not a Trump book. He writes at its outset that some people wanted him to write such a memoir, perhaps in the mould of The Room Where It Happened by his successor John Bolton, a bestseller which detailed Trump’s behaviour and which has drawn a furious legal response from the White House.Instead, McMaster, whose first book Dereliction of Duty concerned policy failures in the Vietnam war, offers detailed examinations of key foreign policy issues – Russia, China, North Korea – spliced with regular pleas for unity at home.“What is so sad these days,” he said, “is that we are so engaged in partisan infighting against each other that we don’t take the time just to inventory what we can agree on. Can we agree that climate change is bad? Yes. Can we agree that it’s man-made? Yes. Can we agree that we can do something about it? Certainly, we can.” Interviewer Scott Pelley said: “The president says climate change is a hoax.” “Well,” said McMaster, “it’s not a hoax. It’s not a hoax.”Trump’s brutal treatment of McMaster is documented in the vast corpus of Trump books. For example, the president reportedly complained his national security adviser was boring and “looked like a beer salesman” when he showed up for work in a suit, rather than full uniform.Eventually, on 22 March 2018, Trump fired McMaster – by tweet.

  • Navalny asks for his clothes back as no official probe into poisoning launched in Russia

    Golocal247.com news

    Alexei Navalny, Russia’s opposition leader who was in a medically induced coma for weeks, has asked authorities to return belongings and clothes that were seized from him as no official inquiry has been launched into his poisoning in Russia. Mr Navalny, a prominent critic of Russian president Vladimir Putin, fell suddenly ill on a flight from Siberia to Moscow last month and spent weeks on a ventilator in a coma before regaining consciousness earlier this month. Several European laboratories independently confirmed that he had been poisoned with the Soviet-era nerve agent Novichok that was previously used in the attack on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury. Russian officials have launched a preliminary investigation but one month after Mr Navalny was poisoned no criminal investigation has been started. The opposition leader’s team revealed last week that they managed to retrieve water bottles from his hotel room shortly after he fell sick on the plane and that traces of Novichok were found on one of those bottles. The clothes that Mr Navalny wore when he fell ill were seized by authorities before his medical evacuation to Germany. Mr Navalny in a blog post on Monday slammed the Russian government for refusing to investigate his poisoning. “I get a feeling as if I slipped in a supermarket and broke a leg instead of falling into a coma on a plane,” he said. Mr Navalny, a lawyer, said that authorities are obliged to return his clothes that might contain traces of the poison now that the one-month deadline for opening a criminal probe has passed. “Thirty days of the preliminary investigation have been used to hide this important piece of evidence,” he said. “My clothes are an important piece of evidence given the fact that Novichok was found on my body and that contamination by touch is quite possible. I demand that my clothes be packed in a plastic bag and returned to me.” The 44-year old opposition leader said on Saturday that he is now being able to work with a “tremble” but added that simple tasks are still a challenge for him. Doctors have said his condition is improving but said it was too early to rule out long-term damage to his health.

Ali Akbar Salehi told delegates at a conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna that the so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, has been “caught in a quasi-stalemate situation” since President Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out in 2018. The remaining world powers in the deal — France, Germany, Britain, China and Russia — have been struggling to offset re-imposed American sanctions.

    Born out of World War II’s devastation to save succeeding generations from the scourge of conflict, the United Nations officially marks its 75th anniversary Monday at an inflection point in history, navigating a polarized world as it faces a pandemic, regional conflicts, a shrinking economy and growing inequality. Criticized for spewing out billions of words and achieving scant results on its primary mission of ensuring global peace, the U.N. nonetheless remains the one place that its 193 member nations can meet to talk. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, looking back on the U.N.’s history in an AP interview in June, said its biggest accomplishment so far is the long period during which the most powerful nations didn’t go to war and nuclear conflict was avoided.

Seeking to justify a possible confirmation vote before the Nov. 3 election, Trump asserted over the weekend that many high court nominations were made in an election year and “in all cases, they went forward.” In fact, just one hour after Justice Antonin Scalia's unexpected death in February 2016, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell publicly made clear the Senate should not confirm a successor chosen by President Barack Obama because of the coming election.
