Shifting Paradigms and Abandonment of Palestine Part 4 Turkey

By Chase LacyRabat- Israel and Turkey have had relatively stable relations since the creation of Israel. There have been some areas of tension, such as Israeli support for Kurdish independence, a hot topic because of Turkey’s large Kurdish population in its southern regions that seek independence.Israel has been angered by the fact that Turkey has supported Palestine’s Hamas and allows them to operate offices on Turkish soil. Turkish President Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) reportedly has ties with Hamas, and Israel suspects Erdogan loyalists have warmed to Iranian officials. Relations became especially strained after the 2010 slaying of 10 Turkish activists on the ship Mavi Mamara. The ship was part of a flotilla attempting to break through the Israeli naval blockade of Gaza and deliver humanitarian aid. Israeli commandos boarded the ship, and in the ensuing conflict, shot and killed 10 activists.Turkey cut ties with Israel in response to the event, and tensions heightened again during the 2014 Gaza War, but in 2016 both countries undertook a diplomatic rapprochement.Israel apologized for the Mavi Mamara event and agreed to pay the families of the victims $20 million. In exchange, Turkey dismissed arrest warrants for the Israeli military officers and soldiers involved. However, the remaining obstacles to rapprochement were Israel’s Gaza siege and Hamas offices operating in Turkey.  Turkey eventually relinquished its demand for Israel to lift the Gaza siege, and Israel allowed Turkey to conduct construction projects in Gaza if materials went through the port at Ashdod for inspection. On the other hand Israel agreed to allow Hamas government officials in Turkey to continue operations, however Turkey (reluctantly, as they do not label Hamas as a terror organization) expelled officials of Hamas’ military wing, the al-Qassam brigades.In the past Turkey and Israel signed military training and defense industrial cooperation agreements, and Turkey permitted Israeli pilots to conduct training operations within Turkish airspace.Turkey has even purportedly allowed Israel to use its territory for surveillance and intelligence on Syria and Iran. The author by no means claims the two countries are friends. However, despite the tensions that have made headlines in recent years, economic trade between the countries has remained strong with some exceptions, such as a dip in Israeli tourism to Turkey during the aftermath of the Mavi Mamara debacle. Economic tiesTurkish-Israeli trade has been valued in billions of US dollars for years, especially since they have an investment agreement, a free trade agreement, and a treaty to avoid double taxation signed in 1996. Both are also members of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Trade reached a total of $4.3 billion in 2017, with Turkish exports—cars, metals, machinery, and textiles—to Israel reaching $2.9 million. Imports of primarily chemicals and refined oil from Israel totalled $1.4 billion. In one sense, Syria’s bloody and brutal civil war has been advantageous for Israel, because it has become a throughway for Turkish exports destined for Jordan. Goods previously passed through Syria, but the situation has become too dangerous for freight drivers to use their old routes.While most trade has been redirected to pass through Egypt, some has been redirected through Israel’s port at Haifa. From Haifa, trucks will drive to Jordan.Turkish Airlines is the second largest carrier in Israel, only behind Israel’s national carrier El Al. Turkish Airlines transported over 1 million passengers to and from Israel in 2017.Economic ties extend also to a lucrative gas deal Israel and Turkey are seeking to ink.The plan is to build an undersea natural gas pipeline that will transport natural gas from Israel’s Leviathan and Tamar natural gas fields to Turkey. From Turkey the gas would be exported to Europe.However, the US embassy move to Jerusalem and President Erdogan’s recent comments about the move have endangered the prospects of the deal being formalized. Erdogan said that Turkey “won’t leave Jerusalem to the mercy of a child killing nation,” and said, on record, that Israeli soldiers are “terrorists.”However negotiations for the deal are still underway, and in fact oil tankers still continued their routes between the two countries. To solidify the deal, Turkey’s ruling AKP and the ultra-nationalist Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) rejected a proposal by the pro-Kurdish People’s Democratic Party (HDP) that would annul all political, military, and economic agreements with Israel and promptly impose sanctions.  Turkey’s willingness to let the Gaza siege remain in place for reconciliation shows that money has more value than the lives of Palestinians. If it continues to engage in multi-billion dollar trade with Israel, continues shipping goods through Israel, and persists in allowing businesses such as Turkish Airlines to operate in Israel, or if it signs the gas pipeline deal, then it is indeed willing to engage in partnership with what Erdogan calls “a child killing nation.”This is the fourth in a 5-part opinion series evaluating the conduct of MENA region states in upholding their commitments to Palestine. Read the first part about Egypt here, the second about the Gulf states here, and the third about Lebanon and Jordan here.The final part in this series will investigate the nature of Morocco’s relationship with Israel. read more

Rights of internally displaced children must be protected UN advocate stresses

14 September 2010The United Nations advocate for children caught up in armed conflict today highlighted the special challenges facing young people uprooted within their own countries by war, stressing the need to ensure that they are protected and their rights are ensured. “There is no child in the world today more vulnerable than a child internally displaced by armed conflict, forced to leave home and community behind,” the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict, Radhika Coomaraswamy, said today.Presenting her annual report to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Ms. Coomaraswamy noted that there are more than 13.5 million internally displaced children in the world today.They are often denied documentation and access to basic services and infrastructure, face restricted freedom of movement and are at increased risk of being recruited or sexually abused, she stated.“We must work with governments to stop all practices that reduce internally displaced children to second class citizens, aliens in their own country.”Yesterday the Special Representative’s office launched a working paper on the rights and guarantees of internally displaced children in armed conflict, which is intended to serve as a comprehensive legal guide and advocacy tool for Governments and humanitarian actors when addressing the many challenges faced by this vulnerable group.Addressing the recent mass rape in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Ms. Coomaraswamy stressed that the protection of women and children in armed conflict is a collective responsibility and called on the country’s Government, with the help of the international community, to hold the perpetrators to account. “Without accountability, there is no justice and without justice there is no deterrent,” she stated. In her presentation, the Special Representative also urged the 56 Member States not party to the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the Involvement of Children in Armed Conflict to ratify the treaty and the 136 parties to the Optional Protocol to become champions of the universal ratification campaign called “Zero under 18.” Launched by the UN in May, the two-year campaign aims to achieve universal ratification of the Optional Protocol by 12 February 2012, the 10th anniversary of the entry into force of the treaty.“Universal ratification will move the international community toward ensuring that the prohibition against child soldiers becomes an international norm which would be recognized by international customary law,” said Ms. Coomaraswamy. In her report, she also lauded the improvements in the situation of children in Nepal, Sudan and Burundi, including the discharge of 3,000 children from Maoists cantonments in Nepal and the progressive release of girls and boys by the Sudanese People’s Liberation Army (SPLA). read more

US offers interestbearing loan to refurbish UN pending congressional approval

Addressing the main UN budget committee on Tuesday, the US delegate, Patrick F. Kennedy, said the proposal is contained in President Bush’s budget plan and must be approved by Congress to go forward.Ambassador Kennedy also stressed that Washington would be paying its assessed share of the loan’s principal and interest. Under the UN’s scale of contributions, the US contributes 22 per cent.”The interest to be paid by Member States will not, in actuality, be paid to the US Government, but instead, to the investors who put up the principal,” he said, adding that Washington “makes no money on the loan to the UN and, in fact, is paying approximately $6m to guarantee the loan and insure against default.”Under the proposal, the loan, with a 5.4 per cent interest rate, could be advanced with up to a 30-year term. The $1.2 billion is an upper limit, and Ambassador Kennedy suggested that if supplementary financing is needed, “it may be appropriate for the Secretary-General to explore other funding opportunities, including contributions from public and private sources.”Speaking on behalf of the European Union (EU), Margaret Stanley of Ireland voiced concern that the US proposal would double the project’s cost, which would then have to be borne by Member States. India’s delegate, Jaideep Mazumdar, noted that with an interest rate of 5.54 per cent, the UN would end up paying $2.5 billion on a $1.2 billion loan, assuming a 30-year repayment period.According to an analysis prepared by the UN, the US has proposed advancing $400 million in each of the first three years of construction, with interest amounting to some $265.9 million by the end of five years. Once construction has been completed, the loan would be repayable over a 25-year period, with a 5.54 per cent interest rate, or nearly $90 million per year annually. The total cost is projected at $2,511,137,500.The analysis, contained in a report by the Secretary-General, recommends that the General Assembly adopt a resolution noting the US offer “with appreciation” while requesting him to consult further with the country’s authorities on the loan’s terms and conditions. At the same time, he would be asked “to explore other funding opportunities, including contributions from public and private sources.”The overhaul of the UN complex, called the “capital master plan,” is widely viewed as the most cost-effective approach to stemming the deterioration of the world body’s Headquarters. Emergency repairs to address the prevailing health, safety and security problems in the building, coupled with inefficient energy use, far exceed the savings that could accrue if the problems are addressed systematically. read more

Smokers are good for the economy think tank finds

first_imgSmoking is worth almost £15 billion to the public purse because of the tax revenue and the savings from smokers’ early deaths, according to a think tank’s analysis.The free market Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) calculated the cost of smoking at £4.6 billion, including treating diseases, tidying up dropped cigarette butts and putting out house fires.But tobacco duties brought in £9.5 billion a year and the Government saves £9.8 billion in pension, healthcare and other benefit payments because of the premature deaths of smokers. The think tank accused politicians of “scapegoating” smokers, drinkers and the obese, claiming the £24.7 billion revenue from “sin taxes” far outweighed the costs they impose on the public finances.”Taken together, Britain’s public finances would be £22.8 billion worse off if there were no drinking, smoking or obesity,” the IEA research paper said.

The report’s co-author Christopher Snowdon, head of lifestyle economics at the IEA said: “We are constantly being told that people who choose to drink, smoke or eat too much are a burden on the UK taxpayer.”This is one reason why we have seen such aggressive hikes in taxes on alcohol, smoking and very soon, a tax on sugar. But the justification for these taxes is based on an illusion.”Smokers, drinkers and those who are obese actually provide a net benefit to the public finances, so vilifying them is futile in the quest to make savings for the NHS.”A careful consideration of the evidence shows that the popular belief that costs will fall if people live healthier and for longer is false.While it’s good that we now have longer life expectancies, policymakers must now address how we tackle the financial consequences of the ageing population rather than pointing the finger elsewhere.” Smoking is worth almost £15 billion to the public purse, report finds Smoking is worth almost £15 billion to the public purse, report findsCredit:Ken Lennox/PAlast_img read more

Obama says he wont wait any longer for immigration reform

first_imgPRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA said he will no longer wait for Republicans to act on immigration and will move on his own to make policy changes in what has been a top second-term priority of his presidency.Speaking today, Obama said he will refocus immigration enforcement onto a Mexican border that has seen a tide of children crossing illegally from Central America.That means putting resources into deporting people who are the most recent border-crossers or individuals who pose a threat to public safety and national security.I take executive action only when we have a serious problem, a serious issue, and Congress chooses to do nothing… And in this situation, the failure of House Republicans to pass a darn bill is bad for our security, it’s bad for our economy and it’s bad for our future.Obama said he decided to bypass Congress after House speaker John Boehner informed him last week that the House would not vote on an immigration overhaul this year.A congressional leadership aide said Obama and Boehner spoke privately before an event last week at the white House honoring US golfers who won last year’s Presidents Cup.Immigration Bill Obama said there are enough Republicans and Democrats in the House to pass an immigration bill today, and says he would sign it.But Obama said he’s waited for more than a year to give Boehner space to act.Obama said the thousands of unaccompanied children showing up on the border underscore the need to drop the politics and act on immigration.Obama’s decision effectively declares that a broad based change in immigration policy is dead for the year, and perhaps for the remainder of his administration.Changing immigration laws and providing a path to citizenship for about 11 million immigrants in the country illegally has been one Obama’s top priorities as he sought to conclude his presidency with major second-term victory.This would obviously have an impact on the thousands of Irish immigrants there are in the US.However, Obama’s ability to undertake changes on his own is limited.He is instructing Homeland Security Department Secretary Jeh Johnson and Attorney General Eric Holder to present him with executive actions he can take without congressional approval by the end of the summer.Children Still, in responding to the influx of unaccompanied children, Obama plans to concentrate immigration resources on the border areas.The move will effectively further reduce the number of deportations in the country’s interior by stressing enforcement action on individuals who are either recent unlawful border crossers or who present a national security, public safety, or border security threat.The decision coincides with a White House request to Congress for new powers to deport newly arrived immigrant children traveling without their parents.As such, Obama’s actions represent a delicate balancing act between responding to what the White House has called a “humanitarian crisis” over unaccompanied children and a demand from immigration activists to reduce the administration’s record number of deportations.Deportations have spiked under the Obama administration to a total of around 2 million so far — the same number removed during the full eight years of the Bush administration.At the same time, formal removals from the interior have decreased each year of the Obama administration, while the number of deportations from the border has increased.The Obama administration also has taken steps already to focus deportations on people with more serious criminal records or those who pose a threat.But this so-called “prosecutorial discretion,” while harshly criticised by Republicans, never succeeded in calming concerns in immigrant communities about how deportations are conducted.Today Obama dropped by a meeting at the White House among immigration overhaul advocates and Chief of Staff Denis McDonough and Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.Many of those advocates reacted harshly to Obama’s plan to seek emergency money from Congress that would, among other things, help conduct “an aggressive deterrence strategy focused on the removal and repatriation of recent border crossers”.Read: Moneygall to open its Barack Obama visitor centre>Read: Obama warns that Iraqi extremists could destabalise other countries>last_img read more

Now not the time to ascertain if BNP goes to polls Fakhrul

first_imgMirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir. File PhotoOpposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir in an exclusive interview with Prothom Alo has said now is not the time to say if the party will go to the general elections later this year or not.The 11th parliamentary elections shall be held by the third week of January 2019 as per the present constitution after the 15th amendment brought by ruling Bangladesh Awami League (AL) in 2011.AL president and prime minister Sheikh Hasina, who came to power in a military controlled election in 2008, however, said on a number of occasions that the next general elections will be held in December this year.Asked who would be BNP’s Mahathir if it wins the next polls as the party often refers to Malaysia’s recent elections, Fakhrul said, “We haven’t yet decided if we will join the polls or not. We haven’t taken a decision that we will join the polls in a situation when Khaleda Zia will remain in the jail and Tarique Rahman outside the country.”BNP chairperson and former prime minister Khaleda Zia has been in jail since 8 February and her son and party’s senior vice chairman Tarique Rahman has been in London since 2008.Asked if the party wants to shelve the question of making prime minister anybody from outside the Zia dynasty, Fakhrul said, “Yes, because the time for making such a decision is yet to come. It involves more discussion and consultation. We’re not even ruling out the possibility of joining the polls.”Asked how long BNP senior vice chairman Tarique Rahman will be “absconding” outside the country when his mother Khaleda is languishing in jail and in poor health, he said Tarique is not scared at all.“He needs to physiotherapy twice in a week. He’s yet to recover the spinal injury he suffered during the 1-11 regime. He won’t be able to get the therapy once he is back to the country and then won’t recover. Given the present circumstances in the country, we won’t see him in good health.”Dwelling on the health of Khaleda, Fakhrul said, “She has been suffering from osteoarthritis and it has deteriorated, affecting not only her knees but also her arms. Her left arm has grown heavy. She can’t hold anything with that arm. She is also suffering from a neck ache due to spondylitis.”Asked if the party has taken the issue to the court, Fakrhul replied in the negative and said, “Our experience is that the authorities form a medical board primarily composed pro-government doctors. We can’t seek the inclusion of private doctors.”About the possibility of going to polls under AL president Sheikh Hasina, Fakhrul said the party never said specifically that it would or wouldn’t join the polls under Hasina. “We’ll continue our street campaign and then will decide after observing the government’s actions.”When his attention was drawn to a court that slapped a moratorium on publication of a speech of Tarique Rahman as long as he remains absconding, Fakhrul said the Bangladesh media hasn’t given due consideration to this matter.“Those who believe in freedom of expression, and want to hear voices of dissent, should have looked into the matter.”Asked why the party didn’t file an appeal against the court order, the BNP leader said they didn’t do so because of their experience.“Whenever we move to the court with any issue, our appeal has been rejected every time. The court’s view of us is negative. We went to the court in the case of Madam’s [Khaleda] affairs, but we know we will not get results. We will however look into the matter as it’s a serious threat to freedom of press and freedom of expression.”About the possibility of BNP forging any alliance with HM Ershad, Fakhrul said, “There is no last word in politics. It depends on the situation. There’s been no communication with him [Ershad] so far. We had got him before the 2014 controversial elections, but he was picked up at gunpoint.”Asked why BNP doesn’t speak of banning its ally Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami now as it sometimes did in the past, Fakhrul said, “We usually say so when they [AL] criticises us for not leaving them.”“Doesn’t it suggest that both AL and BNP need Jamaat-e-Islami?” In reply to such a question, Fakhrul said, “No, Jamaat is with us because we wanted them.”About the key election agenda in the next polls – either corruption or extra judicial killing, Fakhrul said, “Along with these two issues, restoration of democracy will be a key issue.”Asked when BNP will give the outline of an election-time government it wants, he said, “It will depend on the situation too. A country like Pakistan which is often dubbed as a failed state has formed a caretaker government with a consensus of ruling and opposition parties.”In reply to another question, he said the BNP wouldn’t join the polls simply to give any party the legitimacy.Asked when and how the negation between AL and BNP which was brokered by then United Nation’s special envoy Oscar Fernandez-Taranco had failed in the run up to the 2014 elections, the BNP secretary general said, “AL was intransigent. It insisted that holding elections is mandatory. There was no time in hand. The election schedule can’t be changed. They said they would hold the polls just because of constitutional obligation and will negotiate a consensus with us shortly after the elections. And Mr Taranco is the biggest witness to their promise.”Asked what China, India, Russia and the United States are saying about the next general elections, Fakhrul said, “China, India and the US want a participatory election here. The European Union is playing a big role their end. But Russia has said nothing about it.”                         *The article has been rewritten by Abu Taib Ahmed based on an interview which came up in Prothom Alo print edition Monday.last_img read more

Ceasework by docs takes death toll in state to 3

first_imgKolkata: The prolonged ceasework by junior doctors at various government medical colleges has claimed two lives in the past 24 hours, taking the death toll to 3 so far in the state.According to sources, a woman had given birth to a boy at the College of Medicine and Sagore Dutta Hospital at Kamarhati in North 24-Parganas three days ago. The newborn infant later developed respiratory distress. The family members of the victim alleged during a television interview on Thursday that the infant was denied treatment and hence they had to shuttle between the hospitals in the city with the baby. He was not properly treated and eventually died, a family member of the deceased alleged.

The victim, a resident of Tamluk in East Midnapore, had been suffering from some ailments in her uterus. She was taken to a local hospital by her family members and later shifted to SSKM on Tuesday. Prashanta Mondal, a relative of the patient, alleged that she was denied treatment at the emergency ward since her admission, due to the ongoing strike of the junior doctors. He also said that the patient would not have died, had the Chief Minister visited the hospital earlier.

Dr Maji said that there is a Supreme Court ruling which mandates that no doctors can join strikes, thereby hampering medical services to the patients. He also hinted at stern steps against the junior doctors if they do not join their work. Meanwhile, as many as 18 doctors from the College of Medicine and Sagore Dutta Hospital reportedly resigned, expressing a lack of security and infrastructural lapses at the hospital. The state medical council is keeping a tab on the entire development. Governor Keshari Nath Tripath on Thursday urged all the doctors in the state to resume their work and take care of the patients. A press statement issued by the Governor’s office said that the representatives of Joint Platform of Doctors and Doctors’ Association of ABVP West Bengal met the Governor on Thursday about the current situation. They submitted memoranda to the Governor, which are being sent to the state government for taking appropriate action. They have demanded adequate security and protection for the doctors in the hospitals, proper investigation and punishment for all those who attacked the junior doctors. The representatives stated that they will resume duties on receipt of firm and credible assurance of their security by the state government, the press statement says.last_img read more

It is power, you can speak volumes through what you wear without uttering a single word.’Artwork inspired by Alok Vaid-Menon and Sash Velour – two of Falciano’s heroes (Image: @jamesfalciano | Instagram)‘Representation matters’For Falciano, the realization that ‘representation matters’ is part of what drives his work.

I feel it fully encompasses the spectrum of who I am more so than just “gay man” does,’ he says.He also feels, ‘more than the Western definitions of what makes a man.

There are plenty of Tom Of Finland-esque things out there, which is wonderful, and I love a good old erotic drawing as much as the next person. But I feel there is more to the story, there is that softness in men and I think it’s time that aspect was shown as well.’A James Falciano portrait inspired by @that_sandy (Image: @jamesfalciano | Instagram)The flower boyHis affinity with flowers goes back to his childhood. In an Instagram posting from earlier this year, he elaborated. Beside an image of himself as a child, holding a bunch of flowers, he stated: ‘By incorporating floral elements back into my life I feel as though I am reclaiming a part of myself, the most innocent and liberated part of myself, that was taken from me.‘I used to be called “flower boy” in a derogatory manner, but now I embrace that as a badge of honor. I was, and will always be, that flower boy.’(Image: James Falciano)InspirationsWhen it comes to those artists that have inspired him, Falciano offers a multitude.‘John Singer Sargent is one of my favorite portrait artists. He manages to capture so much about his subjects through a very minimal use of brush strokes. It’s amazing.‘Kehinde Wiley is another one, I love his use of bold florals and how he captures a softer side to masculinity in many of his subjects. Edward Hopper, for his use of lighting and simple scenes that convey so much emotion and mystery.center_img Got a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us .

Out of that pool of loans, 7 percent had a loan-to-value ratio over 125 percent.Year-to-date numbers from the reports are as follows: 19 percent of all HARP refinances had LTV ratios greater than 105 percent, and 26 percent of underwater borrowers that took advantage of the HARP program were composed of shorter term 15-year and 20-year mortgages.Regionally, nine states and territories accounted for over 60 percent of national HARP eligible loans via refinance. The top five states, as of March 31, 2017 were as follows: Illinois (14,105); Florida (13,115); Michigan (11,179); Ohio (10,587); and Puerto Rico (9,390).
