Rwanda and Uganda supplying Congo rebels with weapons, says UN - Telegraph

Two of the biggest recipients of British aid in Africa have broken a United Nations arms embargo by supplying rebels in the Democratic Republic of Congo with weapons and ammunition, a Security Council investigation found last night.

Andrew Mitchell, the former International Development Secretary, delayed a payment of £16 million of British money to Rwanda when these allegations first surfaced in July. On his last day in office before moving to become Chief Whip last month, Mr Mitchell released this sum into Rwandan government coffers, with half the money tied to health and education.

How Hamas acquired its 10,000-rocket arsenal

On Sunday afternoon, in a moshav near Ashkelon, Eyal went out to the fields behind his father’s house. Rockets that Iron Dome does not shoot down — those reported to have landed in “open areas” — litter his father’s cotton fields and groves. A Thai worker led him to the site of a recent barrage, where the rusty hull of a rocket lay in the soil.

“I looked at it and couldn’t believe it,” Eyal said. “It looked like a sewage pipe with wings, the kind of thing that you can make in three hours in a metal workshop.”

UGLY SITUATION GETTING UGLIER IN CONGO: BBC News - DR Congo M23 rebels advance on Goma in North Kivu

M23 rebels stand outside a small wooden shack in the village of Kanyarucinya, 6km from Goma, in eastern DR Congo, 18 November 2012  
 Congolese officials say M23 rebels, pictured, are backed by Rwandan weaponry
 
Rebels in eastern DR Congo have advanced to within a few kilometres of the provincial capital, Goma.

The M23 rebels say they have no plans to take the city but residents fear it could fall at any moment.

The UN Security Council this weekend condemned rebel attacks and demanded an end to outside support for the group, noting they were well equipped.

UK Foreign Minister William Hague has condemned the M23 advance and urged British citizens to leave Goma.

"Any British nationals in Goma should leave, and any in DRC should check the FCO's updated travel advice," he said.

Government forces and United Nations troops still control Goma's airport, but the UN says the humanitarian situation is worsening, with some 60,000 internally displaced people fleeing the fighting.

The UN said more than 10,000 fleeing civilians were seen passing near the airport on Sunday.

IAEA says Iran ready to double nuclear work in bunker



Why am I not surprised in this linked article that Iran is about to go into uranium overdrive? A few weeks ago the NY Times, as a sop to Obama's image, was telling us that promising, secret back-door negotiations were going on between the Mullahs and the White House, followed by protests from both that this wasn't so. Even so, Obama has just stated that he wants to play diplomatic rope-a-dope with Iran. No, not him pretending to be trapped against the ropes, but Iran play-acting, as Obama wears himself out throwing diplomatic punches round after round that never land.

More than 110 rockets and mortars fired into Israel in last four days, according to report

Islamic militants fired more than 110 rockets and mortars into Israeli territory over the past four days in attacks that injured eight Israelis, according to a report issued by the Israeli Defense Forces Strategic Division.

The unprovoked attacks have been dispersed throughout the Jewish state’s southern territory and have forced more than a million civilians into bomb shelters. One soldier has been critically injured in the barrage.

The Israel Project says that 898 rockets have fallen on Israel thus far in 2012—over 200 more than hit Israel in the entirety of 2011.

The Obama administration has yet to issue a statement about the attacks. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro recently expressed sympathy via Twitter to those affected by the near-constant assault.

The most recent barrage comes on the heels of a three-month calm between Israel and Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

GOOD NEWS FOR SYRIAN PEOPLE: GCC recognises new Syrian opposition bloc - Middle East - Al Jazeera English


Syria's opposition bloc has yet to be offered the chair left empty after Assad was no longer welcome in Cairo [AFP]
 
The Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) has said its six member states decided to recognise the newly formed National Coalition of the Syrian opposition as the "legitimate representative" of the Syrian people.

 
The GCC's move came a year after the Arab League suspended Syria's membership, and as the National Coalition met Arab foreign ministers in Cairo on Monday, buoyed by the hard-won unity deal.
The Arab League also recognised the newly formed Syrian opposition bloc's role, urging more opposition groups to join the coalition. But their official phrasing was reportedly not as strong as the wording used by the GCC.

"The states of the council announce recognising the National Coalition for the Forces of the Syrian Revolution and Opposition ... as the legitimate representative of the brotherly Syrian people," GCC chief Abdullatif al-Zayani said in a statement on Monday.

The oil-rich bloc, which comprises Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar and Kuwait, would support the coalition "in order to achieve the aspirations of the Syrian people in hope that this will be a step towards a quick political transfer of power," Zayani said.

He hoped its formation would lead to ending the bloodshed and "a general national congress to pave the way to build a state ruled by law and open to all its citizens".

Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland, reporting from Cairo, said, "The newly established coalition is now starting to get the recognition it needs from other bodies."

In the winter of 1942 only the striking beauty of the young Indian woman reading a book on a London park bench in her lunch hour would have seemed exceptional.

A statue has now been unveiled by Princess Anne near the bench in Gordon Square, commissioned by a small group determined that the extraordinary story of Noor Inayat Khan, a gentle artistic intellectual who became a secret agent in occupied France and died aged 30 in Dachau concentration camp, should not be forgotten.

More than 87,000 people have signed a global petition calling for Pakistani schoolgirl activist Malala Yousafzai to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, campaigners said on Friday.

The 15-year-old is recovering in hospital in Britain after Taliban gunmen in her native northwest Pakistan shot her last month after she protested against the restriction of girls’ education.


The attack has drawn international condemnation and Yousufzai has become a powerful symbol of resistance to the Taliban suppression of women’s rights.


On Friday, a campaign led by a Pakistani-British woman urged Prime Minister David Cameron and other senior government officials to nominate Yousufzai for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Libya the main funder of the Syrian opposition


The Syrian National Council says it has received over $20 million in aid from Libya since it was founded in October 2011. It makes Libya its most important donor by far. These figures were released against the background of increasing pressure on the SNC to marginalise extremist elements within its ranks.

In a detailed financial report published on Thursday, 1 November, the SNC states that total foreign donations have reached $40.4 million, half of which was given by Libya and the other half by Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. In more precise figures, $20.4 million originated from Libya, followed by $15 million from Qatar and $5 million from the UAE. The money was said to have been deposited in two bank accounts in Qatar and Turkey.

BRIGHT FUTURE: Costa del Libya? Influential travel survey moots war-torn state as new holiday hotspot « Shabab Libya


The violence that has engulfed the country in the last two years means that, at the time of writing, Libya is unlikely to feature too highly on many people’s travel wish-lists.

But the troubled north African country has enormous potential as a tourist destination, and is likely to rise as a holiday hotspot in the near to medium future – according to a survey of key figures in the travel industry.

Leptis MagnaAncient and epic: Libya is home to historic sites, including the Roman city of Leptis Magna 
 
This week has seen the desert state – which was ravaged by civil war as recently as October last year – take a small step back into potential visitors’ eyelines by setting up a promotional stand at World Travel Market (WTM), an influential travel convention held every November at London’s ExCel Centre.

And a survey of industry professionals has suggested that Libya can look forward to a promising future.

In the poll, which saw 1300 tourism officials interviewed, over half of those surveyed – 56 per cent – believed that Libya has all the ingredients to become a major destination.

Only 10 per cent rejected the idea of Libya as a holiday option.

‘Libya could become one of tourism’s most exciting destinations in the future,’ says WTM director Simon Press.

‘Many destinations, such as Vietnam and Croatia, have repositioned from conflict zones to tourism hotspots, and there is no reason why, over time, Libya cannot do the same.’

Military Times Poll: Romney bests Obama, 2-1 - Army News | News from Afghanistan & Iraq - Army Times


Economy, not military issues, tops concerns
 
By Andrew Tilghman - Staff writer

Posted : Sunday Oct 7, 2012 10:34:55 EDT
The professional core of the U.S. military overwhelmingly favors Mitt Romney over President Obama in the upcoming election — but not because of any particular military issues, according to a new poll of more than 3,100 active and reserve troops.

Respondents rated the economy and the candidates’ character as their most important considerations and all but ignored the war in Afghanistan as an issue of concern.

The Military Times Poll is a secure email survey of active-duty, National Guard and reserve members who are subscribers to the Military Times newspapers (see How We Did It, below).

How Qaddafi Fooled Libya and the World - Max Fisher - The Atlantic

 Though he sold himself as either a costumed buffoon, a wild-eyed terrorist, or a wary reformer, Qaddafi's rule from his unlikely rise to his inevitable fall was one of the most cunning and improbable feats of modern dictatorships

q oct20 p.jpg

Qaddafi speaks to the summit meeting of the nonaligned nations in Sri Lanka, 

August 1976 / AP

In the first few months of 1969, Libya was so filled with rumors that the country's senior military leadership would oust the king in a bloodless coup that, when the coup actually happened on September 1, nobody bothered to check who had led it. A handful of military vehicles had rolled up to government offices and communication centers, quietly shutting down the monarchy in what was widely seen as a necessary and overdue transition. King Idris's government had become so incapable and despised that neither his own personal guard nor the massive U.S. military force then stationed outside Tripoli intervened. Army units around the country, believing that the coup was an implicit order from the military chiefs, quickly secured local government offices. Not a single death was reported; all of Libya, it seemed, had welcomed the military revolution.
