Dozens of Palestinians wounded in Al-Aqsa clashes
APR 16,14-YahooNews


Jerusalem (AFP) - Dozens of Palestinians were wounded in clashes with Israeli police that erupted Wednesday when Jerusalem's flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound was opened to Jewish visitors, an AFP correspondent said.Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told AFP that Palestinians threw "stones and firecrackers" at police when they opened the walled compound's gates.Police responded with stun grenades, Rosenfeld said, and closed the complex to the Jewish visitors after a small number had toured the site.An AFP correspondent at the scene said dozens of Palestinians were wounded by rubber-coated bullets and stun grenade canisters, and were staying inside the Al-Aqsa mosque out of fear they would be arrested when leaving.The compound, in Jerusalem's Old City, is revered as the location of the biblical Jewish temples and is considered Judaism's holiest place.It also houses the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa mosque, the third holiest site in Islam.Rosenfeld said the situation on "Temple Mount," the Jewish term for the complex, was "calm again" and police had left the site.He noted that in a separate incident elsewhere in Jerusalem's Old City a police officer was lightly wounded by stones thrown by Palestinians.Non-Muslim visits to the Al-Aqsa complex are permitted and regulated by police, but Jews are not allowed to pray at the site.Jews are marking Passover, a seven-day holiday which in ancient times was marked by mass pilgrimage to the Temple Mount.On Monday, police arrested five Jews suspected of intending to sacrifice a goat at the Al-Aqsa mosque complex, in a bid to reenact an ancient Passover ritual.Jewish fringe groups have vowed to build a third Temple, but Israeli political and religious authorities have repeatedly dismissed the idea.

Wounded 9-Year-Old 'Lucky to be Alive' After Terror Attack-Almog Mizrahi was injured in the terror ambush that killed a police officer. 'We will get over it,' says his mother.-By Oranit Etzer-First Publish: 4/16/2014, 2:33 PM-IsraelNationalNews

Among those wounded in the terror shooting near Hevron Friday was a nine-year-old boy, Almog Mizrahi of Beit Shemesh. While sharing the same last name with Baruch Mizrahi of Modiin, the police officer who was killed, Almog was in a separate car with his mother and his sister, Lotam.He was released from hospital Wednesday morning, after an operation in which the bullet that struck him was removed from his chest. “I am very lucky that it didn't hit my heart,” he told Channel 2 television. “I feel great now. It's a good thing the bullet stopped where it did.”"I feel that I have been saved on this holiday,” he added.Almog's mother, Vardit, recalled: “Suddenly I heard gunfire, and I felt ricochets, and despite the panic we kept on driving. The boy said to me, 'I'm starting to bleed,' and then I stopped the vehicle to see what happened, and again there was a burst of bullets.”She stopped the car next to a military position, where an IDF medic and emergency services met the family. Lotam is still suffering from anxiety, she said, “but we will get over it. Almog got his life as a present.”Hadassah Mizrahi, whose husband Baruch was killed in the attack and who was wounded herself, told IDF Radio that she tried not to let her children, who were in the car, see their father's wounds, “but they saw it, and my children said: 'Daddy, what happened? Wake up! Wake up! Daddy, why aren't you moving?'”

Israelis, Palestinians seeking to extend peace talks: US
APR 16,14-YahooNews


Washington (AFP) - Israeli and Palestinian negotiators are hammering out a way to extend their faltering peace talks beyond an April 29 deadline, a US official said Tuesday, refuting calls from a leading daily to call it quits.More talks between the two sides will be held on Wednesday, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, although it was not immediately clear if US lead negotiator Martin Indyk would take part."The parties are working right now on an agreement to extend the negotiations, and that means extending the negotiations past April 29," Psaki told reporters."There are naturally a range of issues being discussed. There are steps that both parties would need to take in order to improve the conditions for peace but the parties remain highly engaged," she said.The peace talks, which were kickstarted by US Secretary of State John Kerry in July after a three-year hiatus, hit a major crisis this month when both sides took what Washington has called unhelpful steps.The Palestinians launched moves to join 15 UN treaties and bodies, while Israel refused to release the last tranche of Palestinian prisoners and unveiled plans for 700 more settler homes in east Jerusalem."Both parties tell us they want negotiations to continue and they're searching for a path to do just that," Psaki told reporters.She dismissed a call from the editorial board of The New York Times, which headlined an opinion piece late Monday "In the Middle East, Time to Move on" and argued that neither side had shown they were serious about making peace."It is time for the administration to lay down the principles it believes must undergird a two-state solution, should Israelis and Palestinians ever decide to make peace," the respected daily wrote."Then President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry should move on and devote their attention to other major international challenges like Ukraine."Psaki said she had read the editorial but did not agree with the notion."Neither do the negotiators. Neither do the parties. Neither does the secretary," she said."The Israeli and the Palestinian people deserve a two-state solution where parties are living side by side and they have the economic opportunity and the security that they deserve," Psaki added."And that's why the parties remain committed and why they're working so hard on extending negotiations."

More than 300 people missing after South Korean ferry sinks: coastguard
By Narae Kim - APR 16,14-YahooNews


JINDO, South Korea (Reuters) - Almost 300 people were missing after a ferry sank off South Korea on Wednesday, the coastguard said, in what could be the country's biggest peacetime disaster in nearly 20 years.The ferry was carrying 459 people, of whom 164 were rescued, coastguard officials said. Two people were confirmed dead after the ferry listed heavily onto its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions off South Korea's southwest coast.The Ministry of Security and Public Administration had earlier reported that 368 people had been rescued and that about 100 were missing.But it later described those figures as a miscalculation, turning what had first appeared to be a largely successful rescue operation into potentially a major disaster.The cause of the disaster was not immediately clear although some survivors reported that the ship appeared to have been involved in some sort of impact."It was fine then the ship went 'boom' and there was a noise of cargo falling," said Cha Eun-ok, who said she was on deck of the ferry taking photographs when the disaster began."The on-board announcement told people to stay put ... people who stayed are trapped," she said in Jindo, the nearest town from the scene of the accident.There was confusion about the total number of passengers on board, as authorities revised the figure down from 477 saying some had been double counted, amid growing frustration and anger among families of the passengers.Many of the passengers were children and their teachers from a high school in Seoul on a field trip to Jeju island, about 100 km (60 miles) south of the Korean peninsula.As well the passengers, there were 150 vehicles on board the ferry Sewol, officials said. Witnesses said many people were likely still inside the vessel.An official from the Danwon High School in Ansan, a Seoul suburb, had earlier said all of its 338 students and teachers had been rescued but that could not be confirmed by the coastguard or other officials involved in the rescue.The school official asked not to be identified.

"LOUD IMPACT"

The ferry began to list badly about 20 km (12 miles) off the southwest coast as it headed for Jeju.A member of the crew of a government ship involved in the rescue, who said he had spoken to members of the sunken ferry's crew, said the area was free of reefs or rocks and the cause was likely some sort of malfunction on the vessel.There were reports of the ferry having veered off its course but coordinates of the site of the accident provided by port authorities indicated it was not far off the regular shipping lane.Several survivors spoke of hearing a "loud impact" before the ship started listing and rolling on its side.Within a couple of hours, the Sewol lying on its port side. Soon after, the ship had completely turned over, with only the forward part of its white and blue hull showing above the water.Coastguard vessels and fishing boats scrambled to the rescue with television footage showing rescuers pulling passengers in life vests out of the water as their boats bobbed beside the ferry's hull.Other passengers were winched to safety by helicopters.The ferry left from the port of Incheon, about 30 km (20 miles) west of Seoul, late on Tuesday.It sent a distress signal early on Wednesday, the coastguard said, triggering a rescue that involved almost 100 coastguard and navy vessels and fishing boats, as well as 18 helicopters.A U.S. navy ship was at the scene to help, the U.S. Seventh Fleet said, adding it was ready to offer more assistance.The area of the accident was clear of fog, unlike further north up the coast which had been shrouded in heavy fog that led to the cancellation of many ferry services.The coastguard said one person had been found dead inside the sinking ferry. An official from the Mokpo Hankook hospital on the mainland said another person had died soon after arriving at its emergency ward. That person was later identified as one of the students on the school trip.Television and still pictures showed the stricken ferry surrounded by debris, rescue ships, and inflatable lifeboats.The ship has a capacity of about 900 people, an overall length of 146 meters (480 feet) and it weighs 6,586 gross metric tons (1 metric ton = 1.1023 tons). Shipping records show it was built in Japan in 1994.(Additional reporting by Ju-Min Park, Choonsik Yoo, Meeyoung Cho and Seoul bureau, writing by Jack Kim; Editing by Paul Tait, Mark Bendeich and Robert Birsel)

Jordanian warplanes destroy vehicles trying to cross from Syria: spokesman
APR 16,14-YahooNews


AMMAN (Reuters) - Jordanian warplanes hit and destroyed several vehicles trying to cross the border from Syria, a government spokesman said on Wednesday, underlining Amman's concern about incursions from areas controlled by Syrian rebels."There was an attempt to infiltrate across the border from Syria by a number of vehicles," said spokesman Mohammad al-Momani, also a cabinet minister, told Reuters.A Jordanian security source said the targets were Syrian rebels in civilian cars mounted with machine guns.It was unclear whether rebels who have dominated swathes of territory along Syria's southern border with Jordan might have been seeking refuge inside Jordan from fighting with President Bashar al-Assad's forces that has raged in the region.Momani said the kingdom was increasingly worried about infiltration from Syria. "We are worried about cases of infiltration ... and reports that talk about armed groups that are close to the border and the absence of security there."Amman has tightened already firm controls along the 370-km (230 mile) border to try to prevent Jordanian Islamist militants who have joined the rebels from crossing back into Jordan. They are seen as a domestic security threat.(Reporting by Suleiman Al-Khalidi; Editing by Mark Heinrich)

Rivals show force in eastern Ukraine before talks
By Gabriela Baczynska and Thomas Grove - APR 16,14-YahooNews


KRAMATORSK/SLAVIANSK, Ukraine (Reuters) - Ukrainian government forces and separatist pro-Russian militia staged rival shows of force in eastern Ukraine on Wednesday amid escalating rhetoric on the eve of crucial four-power talks in Geneva on the former Soviet country's future.Government troops drove seven armored personnel carriers flying the Ukrainian flag into the town of Kramatorsk after securing control of a nearby airfield from the rebels on Tuesday, prompting Russian President Vladimir Putin to warn of the risk of civil war.But just 15 km (9 miles) away, armed men in different types of combat fatigues drove six armored personnel carriers, one flying the Russian flag, into the town of Slaviansk, stopping outside the town hall, which is occupied by separatists.The armed men waved as they drove in, and some people waved back and shouted: "Well done lads!" and "Russia" Russia!"Overhead, a Ukrainian jet fighter carried out several minutes of aerobatics above the town's main square in a clear show of strength by Kiev's forces.In the industrial city of Donetsk, at least 20 armed separatists occupied the city council building, a spokeswoman for the council said.The muscle-flexing and inflamed rhetoric heightened fears of violence after Moscow-backed gunmen occupied public buildings in 10 eastern towns and cities in the last week.The Kiev government is seeking to reassert control slowly and without bloodshed before Thursday's Geneva meeting at which the Russian and Ukrainian foreign ministers are due to meet for the first time in the presence of the United States and the European Union.Russia, which has refused to recognize Ukraine's pro-Western government since Moscow-backed President Viktor Yanukovich was ousted by mass protests in February, sought to dramatize instability in its neighbor ahead of those talks.

BRINK OF CIVIL WAR

Putin told German Chancellor Angela Merkel in a telephone call late on Tuesday that Kiev had "embarked on an anti-constitutional course" by using the army against the rebels."The sharp escalation of the conflict puts the country, in effect, on the brink of civil war," a Kremlin statement quoted him as saying.Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk reacted by accusing Moscow of "exporting terrorism to Ukraine".Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, speaking in Vietnam before heading to Geneva, said Kiev should listen to what he called the voice of the people of Ukraine and avoid force."It is unacceptable to use (the armed) forces in the eastern Ukraine," he told reporters in Hanoi.The Ukrainian government launched what it called a "special operation" on Tuesday against separatist militia in the Russian-speaking East, although aside from a landing by airborne troops the action was limited and avoided casualties.Soldiers disembarked from two helicopters at the airfield 10 km (6 miles) from Kramatorsk, where reporters heard gunfire that seemed to prevent an air force plane from landing.There was no sign of violence in the area on Wednesday, but civilians watching the armored vehicles enter the town reflected the sharp political divisions in the mainly Russian-speaking southeastern Donbass region.A group of about 30 local residents blocked the APCs briefly and tried to prevent them going through, a Reuters witness said. Soldiers dismounted and pushed them away. One shot was fired in the air in a brief scuffle before the vehicles moved on.The protesters managed to take away one hand-held radio and two rifle magazines from soldiers."I think Donbass should be an independent country allied with Russia," said a local resident who gave his name as Olexander. "My homeland is the Soviet Union. We just need to chop off the rotten west of Ukraine and we'll be fine."

CRIMEAN PARALLELS

Elsewhere in Kramatorsk, there was no overt sign of hostility as several hundred people milled around another cluster of six APCs from the 25th paratroop brigade from Dnieperpetrovsk. Some residents gave the soldiers tea and bread.But one man, who gave his name as Sergei, said the troops were unwelcome, contrasting the use of the army with the authorities' tolerance of a protest camp on the central Maidan square in the capital."I don't like these troops. As far as Kiev is concerned, we are not people," he said. "For some reason they didn't send tanks onto the Maidan (Independence Square in Kiev) but they send troops to us. Donbass will not forgive this. The country does not exist any more."While troops were not deployed during the protests that ousted Yanukovich in Kiev, police snipers shot dead dozens of protesters.The United States and the EU have accused Moscow of orchestrating the separatist operation in eastern Ukraine as it did in the Ukrainian Black Sea province of Crimea before annexing the region last month.Russia, which Western governments says has massed about 40,000 troops just across the border with eastern Ukraine, denies the charge. The Kremlin is demanding that Kiev accept a loose federal structure for Ukraine.On Thursday, acting Ukrainian President Oleksander Turchinov declared a much-needed victory over pro-Russian rebels by saying the Kramatorsk air base had been "liberated". But the government made no immediate attempt to dislodge separatist gunmen elsewhere.Ukraine's state security service said an "anti-terrorist" operation was also in progress against separatists in the nearby town of Slaviansk but there was no immediate evidence of action.Nonetheless, Kiev's stated resolve to challenge militants it says are orchestrated by the Kremlin, marked an escalation of the deepest East-West crisis since the Cold War.The standoff has raised fears in the West and in Kiev that Russia might intervene militarily to "protect" Russian speakers in eastern Ukraine,A spokesman for U.S. President Barack Obama said Ukraine's government was obliged to respond to "provocations" in the east, but Washington was not considering sending arms to Kiev.The White House said it was seriously considering adding to sanctions imposed after the annexation of Crimea, but the State Department said such action was unlikely before the Geneva meeting.(Additional reporting by Christian Lowe in Moscow, Richard Balmforth in Kiev and Nguyen Phuong Linh in Hanoi; Writing by Paul Taylor; Editing by Will Waterman and Giles Elgood)

NATO ups military presence amid Russian threat
By JUERGEN BAETZ and JOHN-THOR DAHLBURG - APR 16,14-YahooNews


BRUSSELS (AP) — NATO is strengthening its military footprint along its eastern border immediately in response to Russia's aggression in Ukraine, the alliance's chief said Wednesday.Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said NATO's air policing aircraft will fly more sorties over the Baltic region and allied ships will deploy to the Baltic Sea, the eastern Mediterranean and elsewhere if needed."We will have more planes in the air, mores ships on the water and more readiness on the land," Fogh Rasmussen told reporters in Brussels, declining to give exact troop figures.Moscow must make clear "it doesn't support the violent actions of well-armed militias or pro-Russian separatists" in eastern Ukraine, he added.NATO's eastern members — including Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia and Poland — have been wary following Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula, demanding a more robust military deterrence to counter neighboring Russia.He said the NATO deployments are about "deterrence and de-escalation" in the face of Russia's aggressive behavior.The NATO chief did not mention naval deployments to the Black Sea — which Russia would likely see as a direct aggression even though NATO members Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey also border the sea. He insisted, however, that "more will follow if needed."NATO estimates Russia has amassed some 40,000 troops on Ukraine's eastern border and could invade parts of the country within days if it wished. Fogh Rasmussen urged Russia to pull those troops back.The 28-nation alliance has already suspended most cooperation and talks with Russia. The United States has dispatched fighter planes to Poland and the Baltics, enabling NATO to reinforce air patrols on its eastern border. NATO also performs daily AWACs surveillance flights over Poland and Romania.

Russian economy hit by Ukraine turmoil
By LAURA MILLS - APR 16,14-YahooNews


MOSCOW (AP) — Russia's economy slowed sharply in the first three months of the year as uncertainty over the crisis in Ukraine spooked investors into pulling money out of the country, a government minister said Wednesday.Economy Minister Alexei Ulyukayev told parliament that growth was only 0.8 percent in the first quarter — far short of the ministry's earlier prediction of 2.5 percent — because of "the acute international situation of the past two months" as well as "serious capital flight."Russian markets have been rattled by tensions between Moscow and neighboring Ukraine, where Russia annexed the Black Sea region of Crimea last month. The main stock index in Moscow tanked 10 percent in March, wiping out billions in market capitalization. In the first three months of 2014, the ruble lost 9 percent against the dollar, making imports more expensive, while spooked investors pulled about $70 billion out of the country — more than in all of 2013.Among investors' chief concerns are that the U.S. and European Union might escalate their sanctions against Russia to affect trade, particularly in the valuable energy market. Europe is Russia's largest trading partner. It buys more than three-quarters of Russia's crude oil and natural gas exports, which fund about half the government budget.So far, the U.S. and the EU sanctions have been limited to individual Russian politicians and businessmen close to the Kremlin. But the possibility of tougher sanctions has been enough to hinder investment, which dropped 4.8 percent in the first quarter, according to Ulyukayev.The Ukrainian crisis is coming at a bad time for the Russian economy, which faces fundamental problems, the World Bank said in March. The growth rate in 2013 was the lowest in 13 years after a slump in 2009 caused by the global financial crisis.The World Bank predicted the economy could shrink by a dramatic 1.8 percent this year if instability over Ukraine continues and Russia is hit with more Western sanctions.Tensions have only increased in April, as NATO accused Russia of amassing troops on its border for a possible invasion of Ukraine and the authorities in Kiev say Russia is backing armed militants in the country's east, where pro-Russian activists have seized government buildings and police stations.

DUBAI (Reuters) - The leader of Al Qaeda's wing in Yemen has vowed to attack the United States, in a video apparently showing a gathering of the group celebrating a mass jailbreak of fighters.In February, attackers mounted a bomb, grenade and gun assault on the main prison in Sanaa in which 29 inmates, including 19 jailed for terrorism-related crimes, escaped.The 15-minute video, dated March 2014 and posted on a website used by Islamists, shows masked men waving al Qaeda's black flag and celebrating the arrival of the freed prisoners.Its authenticity could not be independently verified."The Crusader enemy, dear brothers, still possesses cards which he moves around. We have to remember that we are always fighting the biggest enemy," says a man speaking in the open in a mountainous area, whom the video identifies as its leader Nasser al-Wuhaishi."We have to remove the cross, (and) the bearer of the cross, America," said Wuhaishi, who appeared with his face uncovered, wearing a T-shirt and sporting the dagger common among Yemeni men.The video, entitled "Images from the reception of the freed prisoners from Sanaa's central prison", included testimony from fighters involved in the jailbreak."We planned that we would need 10 hand grenades," said a man identified as Munir al-Bouni.Another man said: "Once you got out, you turned right and the guys were waiting."

DRINKING JUICE AND SINGING SONGS

The video showed men arriving in white pickup trucks and others greeting Wuhaishi. Others carried rifles, and some sat on the ground drinking juice. Some spoke or sang through microphones and loudspeakers. Abdulrazzaq al-Jamal, a journalist who has interviewed members of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), said it was the largest known gathering of al Qaeda in Yemen."It included about 400 people, and these are not all the members of the group. This gathering is a confirmation that al Qaeda is gaining strength and influence," he told Reuters.Formed in 2009, AQAP has attacked military targets, tourists and diplomats in Yemen and taken over territory for long periods.U.S. drone attacks have killed several suspected AQAP figures, including Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born Islamist cleric accused of links to a plot to bomb a Detroit-bound airliner in 2009 and U.S. cargo planes in 2010."Al Qaeda will gain strength as there continues to be division and weakness in security performance," said Ali al-Sarari, political adviser to Prime Minister Mohammed Salem Basindwa."The last appearance (the video) shows that Yemen is confronting a dangerous challenge. And if the security performance continues in this manner, then Yemen will face an even bigger failure than what it has faced in the past."(Writing by Yara Bayoumy; editing by Sami Aboudi and Andrew Roche)

First Documented Use of US Anti-Tank Weapons by Syrian Rebels-Experts say footage of BGM-71 TOW anti-tank rocket used by moderate rebel groups significant, but not a game-changer.By Ari Soffer-First Publish: 4/16/2014, 2:57 PM-IsraelNationalNews

The first footage of Syrian rebels using advanced US-made anti-tank weaponry has emerged, in what some experts say represents an important, though not necessarily game-changing development.Other videos have featured the rockets in the hands of the Syrian Revolutionary Front and another rebel brigade called Awliya wa Katalib al-Shaheed Ahmed al-Abdo. Both are generally seen as moderate, although concerns have been raised over the SRF's cooperation with Al Qaeda affiliate the Nusra Front.It is unclear whether the weaponry was supplied by Washington or by a US ally such as Saudi Arabia, possibly with American approval.According to Reuters, although only a small number of uses of American-made rockets have been documented, they are becoming increasingly visible on the ground."With U.S.-made TOW anti-tank missiles now seen in the hands of three groups in the north and south of Syria, it is safe to say this is important," said Charles Lister, visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution Doha Centre and one of the first to identify the weapons.The US and other western allies have been largely hesitant to provide military aid to rebel groups, fearing that some of the weaponry could end up in the hands of Al Qaeda-linked groups - much to the frustration of rebel-backers Qatar and Saudi Arabia.Analysts have said the limited injection of US-made anti-tank weaponry, though significant, would not alter the shape of the battlefield in war-torn Syria. Regime forces recently retook the Christian town of Maaloula, and have been making gains in other areas as well.Rebels still largely control northern and eastern Syria, with the regime in control of central cities and much of the west.Both regime and rebel forces have made considerable use of foreign arms, with Assad's forces boasting ever-more advanced Russian arms and rebels using Chinese and other weapons supplied primarily by Gulf backers.

Official: Iran will not discuss missile program
By ALI AKBAR DAREINI - APR 16,14-YahooNews

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Tehran will not discuss its ballistic missiles as part of ongoing talks with world powers on a final agreement to curb the Iranian nuclear program, the country's defense minister said Wednesday.The remarks by Gen. Hossein Dehghan came as a rebuff of recent comments by U.S. State Department's nuclear negotiator, Wendy Sherman, who said Iran's ballistic capabilities should be addressed as part of a comprehensive agreement with Iran.Iran's ballistic program has also been a concern for the West since ballistic missile can be used to deliver nuclear warheads. Iran insists the missile program has no nuclear dimensions but is also adamant that its defense industry is a "red line" as a topic at the nuclear talks.The U.S. has argued that a U.N. Security Council resolution bans Iran from "undertaking any activity related to ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons."But Dehghan said Iran's missile program has "nothing to do" with the nuclear negotiations and that it has no nuclear dimensions."Iran's missiles are not up for discussion under any circumstances," he told the semiofficial Fars news agency. "Iran's missiles are only our concern ... We don't accept any intervention from anybody on this issue."Tehran has developed a series of missiles, some of which have a range 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles) — enough to reach much of the Middle East. Military commanders have described them as a strategic asset and a strong deterrent, capable of hitting U.S. bases or Israel in the event of a strike on Iran.The Pentagon released a rare public report in 2012 noting significant advances in Iran's missiles technology and acknowledging that Tehran has improved their accuracy and firing capabilities.Iran and six world powers — the five permanent members of the Security Council plus Germany — reached an interim deal in November that put limits on Iran's uranium enrichment program in return for the easing of some sanctions. Core sanctions, however, remain in place — including measures targeting Iran's oil exports, the pillar of its economy.Talks are ongoing for a final deal that would remove all possibilities that the Islamic Republic could use its capabilities to build a nuclear weapon.The talks are to continue on May 13 and the future scope of Iran's uranium enrichment program has remained the toughest issue.In a positive sign, diplomats said Tuesday that the United Nations will release a report this week certifying that Iran's ability to make a nuclear bomb has been greatly reduced because it has diluted half of its stockpile of 20-percent enriched uranium, which is only a technical step away from the 90-percent grade used to arm nuclear weapons.The move was part of Iran's commitments under the interim deal. The diplomats, who are familiar with Iran's adherence to its commitments, demanded anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the confidential International Atomic Energy Agency report, due for release Wednesday or Thursday.___Associated Press writer George Jahn in Vienna contributed to this report.

Time for US to forsake peace efforts, New York Times says-Editorial argues Israelis and Palestinians lack determined, courageous leaders needed for an accord-By Times of Israel staff April 15, 2014, 2:17 pm

An editorial in Tuesday’s New York Times called on the US government to abandon its mediation efforts between Israelis and Palestinians and focus on “other major international challenges,” asserting that no amount of American pushing and shoving could succeed when the two sides were reluctant to make peace themselves.In the opinion piece, titled “In the Middle East, Time to Move On,” the paper stated that US President Barack Obama “made the right decision to give (peacemaking) a second try last summer” but said it had now become clear that the sides “are still unwilling to move on the core issues of the borders of a Palestinian state, the future of Jerusalem, the fate of Palestinian refugees and guarantees for Israel’s security.”In the current climate, the editorial reasoned, continued efforts were futile. It suggested that Washington outline its principles for a viable, lasting peace agreement — a Palestinian state along the 1967 borders with mutually agreed land swaps; an agreement that Jerusalem will be the capital of both nations — and then redirect its foreign policy efforts to other pressing global issues, such as the ongoing military tensions between Russia and Ukraine.While a peace deal was “essential for the security of both peoples,” the paper concluded, “To achieve one will require determined and courageous leaders and populations on both sides that demand an end to the occupation. Despite the commitment of the United States, there’s very little hope of that now.”US envoy Martin Indyk was set to return to Israel on Tuesday in a fresh bid to save the failing peace process. According to Palestinian sources another round of talks-about-talks was expected on Tuesday or Wednesday evening.Peace efforts suffered a new blow last week when Israel said it would freeze the transfer of duties it collects on the Palestinians’ behalf, in retaliation for the Palestinian Authority’s applications to join 15 UN and other international treaties in breach of previous understandings.The monthly 80 million euros ($111 million) in taxes collected by Israel represents about two-thirds of the PA’s income. Israel also reportedly plans to suspend its participation with the Palestinians in developing a gas field off the Gaza Strip and to put a cap on Palestinian deposits in its banks.Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, in a meeting with ambassadors posted in Tel Aviv on Sunday, blamed the Palestinians for the rapid deterioration in the peace process.“We were very close to an agreement with the Palestinians, a complex transaction which was being examined by the (Israeli) cabinet, but at the last moment the Palestinians broke their promises and submitted applications” to join international treaties, he charged.“We are ready to discuss and negotiate but we will not accept unilateral steps,” Lieberman said.The talks hit an impasse two weeks ago when Israel refused to release a group of Palestinian prisoners, objecting to freeing Israeli Arabs in the group and seeking the PA’s pledge to continue peace talks beyond a current April 29 deadline. The Palestinians then moved to join the 15 international treaties and conventions.AFP contributed to this report.

Iran equips destroyers with anti-ship missiles-Advanced Ghadir cruise systems installed on warships, Iran’s navy chief says-By Yifa Yaakov April 15, 2014, 6:34 am 1-The Times of Israel

Iran has outfitted its destroyers and warships with Ghadir cruise missiles, the country’s Fars news agency reported Monday.“Ghadir cruise missiles have been mounted on both Navy destroyers and missile-launching warships and they are also used as coast-to-sea missiles,” the news agency quoted the commander of Iran’s navy, Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari, as saying.According to Sayyari, the Ghadir missile is a surface-to-surface projectile which has a longer range than the country’s previous missile systems. It also has more destructive fire power and greater precision than other anti-ship systems mounted on Iranian destroyers, such as Nour and Qader.Speaking at a ceremony to inaugurate the newly-overhauled destroyer Bayandor in the major southern port of Bandar Abbas, Sayyari said Iran would use the missile mostly for coast-to-sea fire.The general said 76-mm and 46-mm artilleries had been mounted on the modernized destroyer, as well as other special systems.”“The 40-mm cannon mounted on the destroyer is also among advanced artilleries in air defense,” he said.On Sunday, Iran temporarily called off a plan to dispatch warships to the Atlantic Ocean, according to the country’s semi-official Fars news agency.The outlet quoted Sayyari as saying such changes of naval plans are routine, “considering the situation in the region.”Sayyari did not say why Iran changed the plan but said that “when piracy increases in the Gulf of Aden some changes will be applied in the assignments.”He said another fleet would be sent to the Atlantic Ocean in the future, but did not elaborate. Iran in January said it had launched two warships on a three-month voyage to the Atlantic to demonstrate the country’s ability to project power across the Middle East and beyond. The fleet consisted of a destroyer and a logistic helicopter carrier.The Islamic Republic considered the move as a response to US naval deployments near its own coastlines, Iran indicated. The US Navy’s 5th fleet is based in nearby Bahrain.In February, at the peak of the standoff, Sayyari said that a major naval building program was underway in Iran.“Different torpedo-launcher missiles, destroyers and submarines have been built or are being constructed by the Navy,” he told navy cadets in the northern city of Anzali, according to Fars news agency.The statement followed a number of signs over the past year that Iran is upgrading its navy as part of a program of military self-sufficiency, which could threaten American ships patrolling the Persian Gulf. Its navy maintains a presence in the Persian Gulf, Indian Ocean, Caspian Sea, and other bodies of water.In September, Tehran deployed a Russian-made submarine in the Persian Gulf, one of the three Kilo-class submarines that Iran obtained in the early 1990s. A second submarine was refurbished and redeployed in May 2013.Also December, Iran redeployed two warships after refitting them with new anti-ship missiles. IRNA said the missile boats, Neizeh and Tabarzin, were equipped with Ghader and Noor anti-ship missile systems, with ranges of 200 kilometers and 120 kilometers respectively.Times of Israel staff and AP contributed to this report.

A lunar tetrad – four total lunar eclipses in a row – begins on the night of April 14-15. People are calling it a Blood Moon eclipse. Here’s why.
On the night of April 14-15, the planet Mars - closest in 6 years - will be near the eclipsed moon.  The star Spica will also be nearby.  Illustration via Classical Astronomy. -Earthsky

The first Blood Moon eclipse in a series of four is coming up on the night of April 14-15, 2014. This total eclipse of the moon will be visible from the Americas. We in astronomy had not heard the term Blood Moon used in quite this way before this year, but now the term is becoming widespread in the media. The origin of the term is religious, at least according to Christian pastor John Hagee, who wrote a 2013 book about Blood Moons.Meanwhile, both astronomers and some proponents of Christian prophesy are talking about the upcoming lunar tetrad – the series of four total lunar eclipses – beginning on the night of April 14-15.
We at EarthSky don’t have any special knowledge about the Blood Moons of Biblical prophesy. But, since they’re moons, and since people are asking us, we wanted to provide some info. Follow the links below to learn more about Blood Moons.0Earthsky-pic below

This is what a total eclipse looks like. This is the total eclipse of October 27, 2004 via Fred Espenak of NASA. Visit Fred’s page here. We astronomy writers often describe a totally eclipsed moon as appearing ‘blood red.’ Here’s why the moon turns red during a total eclipse.
What is a lunar tetrad? Both astronomers and followers of certain Christian pastors are talking about the lunar tetrad of 2014-2015. What is a tetrad? It’s four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial lunar eclipses in between, each of which is separated from the other by six lunar months (six full moons)
Blood Moons in Biblical prophecy. We’re not experts on prophecy of any kind. But we’ll tell you what we know about the new definition for Blood Moon that has raised so many questions recently.
From what we’ve been able to gather, two Christian pastors, Mark Blitz and John Hagee, use the term Blood Moon to apply to the full moons of the upcoming tetrad – four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial lunar eclipses in between, each of which is separated from the other by six lunar months (six full moons) – in 2014 and 2015. John Hagee appears to have popularized the term in his 2013 book Four Blood Moons: Something is About to Change.Mark Blitz and John Hagee speak of a lunar tetrad as representing a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. After all, the moon is supposed to turn blood red before the end times, isn’t it? As described in Joel 2:31 (Common English Bible):The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood before the great and dreadful day of the LORD comes.That description, by the way, describes both a total solar eclipse and total lunar eclipse. Sun turned to darkness = moon directly between the Earth and sun in a total solar eclipse. Moon turned to blood = Earth directly between the sun and moon, Earth’s shadow falling on the moon in a total lunar eclipse.

16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.

Israel says close to forging new ties across Arab world
By Dan Williams -APR 14,14-YahooNews


JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel is holding secret talks with some Arab states that do not recognize it, looking to establish diplomatic ties based on a common fear of Iran, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Monday.Amongst the countries he was in contact with were Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, Lieberman told newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth - the first such disclosure by a senior Israeli official.The two nations swiftly denied the existence of any talks with Israel.Both these states, along with most other Arab nations, have traditionally been highly hostile towards Israel, which has only signed peace deals with two neighbors - Egypt and Jordan.However, anti-Israeli sentiment was being superseded by a growing concern over Iran's nuclear program, Tehran's regional allies, and the menace of Islamist militancy, Lieberman said."For the first time there is an understanding there that the real threat is not Israel, the Jews or Zionism. It is Iran, global jihad, (Lebanese Shi'ite guerrilla group) Hezbollah and al Qaeda," the foreign minister said."There are contacts, there are talks, but we are very close to the stage in which within a year or 18 months it will no longer be secret, it will be conducted openly," added Lieberman, who is a far rightist in the coalition government.Lieberman said he was in touch with "moderate" Arabs - a term Israelis often use for Sunni states in the Gulf and elsewhere in the Middle East that align with U.S. interests. He also said he would have no problem visiting Saudi Arabia or Kuwait."I have spent more than a few years of meetings and talks with them. As far as they are concerned, there is only one red rag and that is Iran," he said.A spokesman for Saudi Arabia's Foreign Ministry said: "There are no ties or talks with Israel at any level." In Kuwait, Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Khaled al-Jarallah said: "It is not true, we don't have these kind of talks."

FULL RELATIONS

Yedioth paraphrased Lieberman as saying some new Israeli-Arab peace accords would be signed in 2019."I'm certain that by then we will have a situation in which we have full diplomatic relations with most of the moderate Arab states. And you can count on my word," he said.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has long hinted that Israel and the Gulf states share a similar goal in halting Iran's nuclear program, saying they all saw a mortal threat in its ambitious atomic drive.Iran denies that it is planning to build nuclear weapons. Senior Israeli officials have also said that like themselves, moderate Sunni states are worried that Washington was not taking a tough enough line with Tehran.However, analysts have scoffed at the idea that ties between Israel and much of the Arab world could be normalized while the Israeli-Palestinian conflict remained unresolved.U.S.-brokered peace talks between the two are floundering, with no indication that a resolution is anywhere in sight."To Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states, the cost of open relations with Israel at this time may be higher than the benefit, given the position of the Arab street," Israeli think tank, the Institute for National Security Studies, said in a report in December. Lieberman, who has worked hard in recent months to soften his hardline international image, suggested Arab nations were as eager as Israel to be open about their shared interests."I think that they too are stewing in their own juice and reaching an awareness that there will be no choice but to move from the secret stage of the dialogue between us to the open stage of the talks," he said.(Additional reporting by Angus McDowall and Sylvia Westall; Editing by Crispian Balmer and Alison Williams)

Nuclear export group debates ties with Israel: document
By Fredrik Dahl -APR 14,14-YahooNews


VIENNA (Reuters) - The United States and three European allies want a global body controlling nuclear exports to consider whether to establish closer ties with non-members including Israel, despite its assumed atomic arsenal, a confidential document showed.The issue is sensitive as Israel is outside a 1970 international pact designed to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and the Jewish state is widely believed to be the only country with such arms in the volatile Middle East.Arab states and Iran often criticize Israel for not signing up to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Israel and Washington say it is Iran, which is in the 189-nation NPT, that poses the region's most urgent proliferation threat, although Tehran says its program is for peaceful uses only.With the spread of nuclear technology, and the fears of it falling into the hands of militants or states the West fears could illicitly work on a weapons program, trade transparency and cooperation are seen as becoming more important.In view of this, the United States, Britain and the Czech Republic sponsored a Dutch paper submitted ahead of a meeting last week of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), set up in 1975 to ensure that civilian nuclear exports are not diverted for military purposes. All members have signed the NPT."With technology progressing at an ever increasing rate, globalised supply chains, and more and more countries developing nuclear and dual use capabilities, the possibility of trade in nuclear related goods between governments not participating in the NSG is becoming more and more likely," the paper said."In order to stay ahead of the curve, the NSG's goals - to control the export of nuclear sensitive goods - might be best served by an open-minded approach aimed at cooperation with non-NSG members and promoting transparency of the NSG guidelines."The discussion paper, seen by Reuters, outlined different types of "possible benefits the NSG could consider granting" a country that is adhering to its trade guidelines even though it is not in the secretive 48-nation grouping.These could include sharing of information, access to NSG meetings and "facilitated export arrangements", suggesting possible access to some nuclear trade with NSG countries, for example related to safety.

"SENSITIVE AND DIFFICULT"

Currently, Israel is the only non-NSG country that fulfils the criteria regarding "adherence" to its guidelines although India and Pakistan have informally indicated that they also follow them, the Dutch Foreign Ministry document said.The NSG groups Western countries with nuclear energy programs as well as Russia, China, some South American nations and others but it has no members from the Middle East.A former Israeli nuclear official who declined to be named said Israel for years had tried to get the NSG to recognize it as a so-called adherent country "on the strength of the justified truth that Israel is a responsible state". But some members, including South Africa, "won't even give us an inch".Nuclear expert Mark Hibbs said such an acknowledgement by the NSG would be important for Israel. "It would be a recognition from a very important nuclear non-proliferation related body that Israel is a responsible nuclear state," Hibbs, of the Carnegie Endowment think-tank, said.Like Israel, Pakistan and India have both refused to sign the NPT, which would oblige them to scrap their nuclear weapons.Washington, London and others say India should be allowed to join the NSG, arguing that it qualifies because of the size of its civilian atomic industry and its commitment to stopping the spread of military material. But other member states have voiced doubt about accepting India, which would be the only member of the suppliers group that has not signed up to the NPT.Any decision on Indian membership or closer relations with others outside the NSG would need the support of all members of the cartel that regulates nuclear trade.It was not immediately clear how the Dutch paper - which builds on a German one in 2006 - was received at last Thursday's.meeting in Vienna. One participant said countries had been asked to prepare questions for future meetings."I'm sure a number of partners will have quite a few questions, will be reluctant on certain issues," another envoy said. A third official noted the issue had also been discussed at various times in the past, adding: "It is a very sensitive and difficult question."

FALSE POPE FROM THE VATICAN

1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication,(VATICAN IN POLITICS) and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman (FALSE CHURCH) was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour,(VATICAN COLOURS)(ANOTHER REASON WE KNOW THE FALSE POPE COMES FROM THE VATICAN) and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.(THE VATICAN IS BUILT ON 7 HILLS OR MOUNTAINS)
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.(VATICAN-CATHOLICS ALL AROUND THE WORLD OVER 1 BILLION)
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast,(WORLD DICTATOR) these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

04/14/2014 - VATICAN INSIDER--Sunday’s silent square and Francis’ questions-The Pope at the Palm Sunday mass-At the Palm Sunday Mass, Francis reeled off a list of Bible characters asking faithful to think about which one they identified themselves with-ANDREA TORNIELLI
vatican city-The entire square fell silent when the Pope began his Palm Sunday homily, marking the start of Holy Week. Francis looked serious and deep in concentration as he left his prepared text to one side and began by asking himself and all those present the big question: Which Biblical figure do I identify myself with? His questions - which started with “Am I like…” - obviously moved the crowd; there is no other way to explain the silence that accompanied the Pope’s brief but intense reflection. Some tried to play down Francis’ homily as “similar to those pronounced in many parishes this Sunday”. But this is coming from individuals who never lose a chance to talk down the Argentinian Pope’s words, probably because they are incapable of understanding that it is possible to be profound and simple at the same time.“It would do us good to ask ourselves one question: Who am I before the Lord, who am I before Jesus who enters a Jerusalem during a time of celebration? Am I able to express my joy and shout it to the world or do I take my distance? Who am I before the suffering Jesus? We have heard so many names. The group of leaders, the Pharisees, experts in the law who decided to kill him and were waiting for the opportune moment to get him. Am I one of them?” the Pope asked.“Am I like Pontius Pilate who walks away from his responsibilities when the situation gets tough, allowing others to be sentenced or sentencing people?” Francis went on to ask. “Or am I like the crowd of people who weren’t quite sure whether they were at a religious gathering, a trial or a circus and chose Barabas because to them it was the same; it was all the more fun because they could humiliate Jesus. Am I like the soldiers who beat Jesus, spit at him, insult him and enjoy humiliating the Lord?”“Am I like those leaders who went to Pontius Pilate the next day to tell him that Jesus said he would be resurrected and blocked life by blocking the entrance to the tomb to defend the doctrine, so that life could not come out?”Francis looked serious as he pronounced these questions. His seriousness was mistaken for tiredness or a bad mood by those who are not able to understand that for those who have faith, reliving Jesus’ Passion is no walk in the park and that the liturgy is not a show. At the end of the mass Francis spent a long while in St. Peter’s Square socializing and joking with the many young people present. Indeed, the Pope did not look serious because he was tired or in a bad mood. He was simply in deep concentration as he always is when celebrating one of the mysteries. This is something some Vatican observers fail to grasp, but simple faithful understand fully and they made this clear with their silence and presence.

Syrian opposition leader to visit China
APR 14,14-YahooNews


BEIJING (Reuters) - Syrian opposition leader Ahmad Jarba will lead a delegation to China this week and meet the country's foreign minister, the government said on Monday, in Beijing's latest effort at mediation in the crisis.China and its ally Russia have vetoed Western efforts to impose U.N. penalties on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.But China has been keen to show it is not taking sides and has urged the Syrian government to talk to the opposition and take steps to meet demands for political change.China has played host to both opposition and government delegations, though to little apparent effect.Foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Jarba and a delegation from his Syrian National Coalition would visit China from Tuesday to Friday, meeting both Chinese experts and Foreign Minister Wang Yi.Hua said that Wang and Jarba will "exchange views" on the situation in Syria and how to resolve the issue politically."We are now in the fourth year of the unrest in Syria, which has been a terrible disaster for its people and has been a huge shock to regional peace and stability," she told a daily news briefing."China's hosting of the delegation of the Syrian National Coalition is part of China's hard work to proactively and in a balanced way promote peace in Syria."China, not a major diplomatic player in the Middle East, has consistently called for a political resolution for Syria and opposed the use of military force.Hua said that China was paying close attention to the latest reports of chemical weapons being used in Syria.Opposition activists earlier this month again accused Assad's forces of using poison gas in Syria's civil war."No matter who uses chemical weapons, China is resolutely opposed to it," Hua said.(Reporting by Ben Blanchard; Editing by Ron Popeski)

Syrian army seizes ancient Christian town near Lebanon border
By Firas Makdesi 2 hours ago-APR 14,14-YahooNews


MAALOULA, Syria (Reuters) - Syrian soldiers backed by Hezbollah fighters recaptured the town of Maaloula, north of Damascus, on Monday, military sources and state television said, further squeezing rebels' supply routes through the Qalamoun mountains into Lebanon.Islamist fighters, some from the al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front, had taken over part of the ancient Christian town in December and held several nuns captive until releasing them in March in a prisoner-exchange deal.Government forces have recaptured several rebel-held areas and border towns in recent months, closing off supply routes from Lebanon and securing the main highway leading north from Damascus toward central Syria, Homs and the Mediterranean."They are inside Maaloula now. It is under their complete control, including the monastery of Mar Thecla," said a military source in contact with government fighters on the ground.At another ancient Christian site, Mar Sarkis - a Greek Orthodox monastery dating back to the fourth century and located on a hilltop above Maaloula - a Reuters witness saw crosses and pictures of saints smashed and covered with dust on the floor."God willing, the army will be able to free all of the Qalamoun area within days," a Syrian army officer in Maaloula told Reuters. "Most of the terrorists have been killed and others fled to nearby villages."We can say that 80 percent of Qalamoun is under the control of the Syrian army."Syrian state television aired pictures of bodies it said were Nusra fighters killed during the offensive.Maaloula, 5 km (3 miles) from the main road linking Damascus to Homs, has changed hands at least four times in attacks and counter-assaults by rebels and government forces.Control of the road would help secure President Bashar al-Assad's grip over central Syria, and would also enable safe passage for hundreds of metric tons of chemical agents that are due to be shipped out of the country this year to be destroyed.Assad, who appeared on the verge of defeat last year, said on Sunday that the conflict was at a "turning point" in his favor.In Washington, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki rejected his view."Our analysis remains what it has been, that this is a war of attrition, and neither side has been able to deliver or hold onto significant gains," she told reporters.In the last few weeks, Assad's forces have recaptured strategic towns along the Lebanese border, including Yabroud and Rankous near Maaloula.Maaloula's churches and monasteries attracted both Christian and Muslim pilgrims before the conflict. Some of its inhabitants still speak Aramaic, the language of Christ, and the monastery of Mar Thecla has a reputation among believers for miraculous cures.Syria's Christian community, about 10 percent of the population, is wary of the rising power of Islamist groups within the rebel movement.Only a small percentage of Christians have taken up arms in the civil war that broadly pits minorities, in particular Assad's Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shi'ite Islam, against the Sunni Muslim majority.(Reporting by Mariam Karouny; Editing by Robin Pomeroy and Jan Paschal)

Obama blasts Russia in tense call with Putin over Ukraine
By Jeff Mason and Arshad Mohammed 51 minutes ago-APR 14,14-YahooNews


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama told Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday that Russia's actions in Ukraine were not conducive to a diplomatic solution of the crisis in that country, and the White House warned that Moscow would suffer further costs for its behavior.
Obama spoke to Putin at the Russians' request, a senior administration official said, describing the call as "frank and direct," a diplomatic construction that usually means tense."The president made clear that the diplomatic path was open and our preferred way ahead, but that Russia's actions are neither consistent with or conducive to that," the official said.Obama told Putin that Kiev had made "real offers" to address concerns about the decentralization of powers to local governments in the country."That is a matter for Ukrainians to decide," the official said. "We have always and will continue to support an inclusive process."Earlier, U.S. officials stopped short of announcing a new set of sanctions against Russia but said they were in consultations with European partners about the prospect.The European Union agreed on Monday to step up sanctions against Moscow by expanding a list of people subjected to asset freezes and visa bans."Russia continues to engage in provocative actions in eastern Ukraine. The mere presence of the troops, in addition to what else they've done inside Ukraine, creates a threat of destabilization within Ukraine," White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters."I can assure you that Russia's provocations - further transgressions and provocations will come with a cost. And I'm not here to specify what cost will come from which specific action, but there have already been costs imposed on Russia; there will be further costs imposed on Russia."The next round of U.S. sanctions, which would be the fourth imposed since the Ukraine crisis began, is likely to target Russians close to Putin as well as Russian entities, three sources familiar with the discussions said on Sunday.U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki noted that the United States was prepared to impose sanctions on individuals and entities in the financial services, energy, metals, mining, engineering and defense sectors.The sanctions have been the most visible sign of U.S. anger at Russia's annexation of the Crimea region in southern Ukraine last month, reflecting the deepest plunge in U.S.-Russian relations since the Cold War.Obama spoke to French President Francois Hollande about the crisis on Monday and praised Ukraine's government for showing "great restraint" and working to unify the country, the White House said.Carney also confirmed that the director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan, had been in Kiev over the weekend and decried what he called "false claims" leveled at the CIA by Russian authorities."Senior level visits of intelligence officials are a standard means of fostering mutually beneficial security cooperation including U.S.-Russian intelligence collaboration going back to the beginnings of the post-Cold War era," Carney said."U.S. and Russian intelligence officials have met over the years. To imply that U.S. officials meeting with their counterparts (in Kiev) is anything other than in the same spirit is absurd," he said.According to media reports, Russia has urged Washington to explain what Brennan was doing in Ukraine.(Additional reporting by Jim Loney; Editing by Bernard Orr)

Ukraine struggles as east slips out of its control
By PETER LEONARD and MARIA DANILOVA 1 hour ago-APR 14,14-YahooNews


HORLIVKA, Ukraine (AP) — The fuel is local, but the matches are Russian. That in a nutshell is how the insurgency threatening the survival of Ukraine as a unified state is increasingly unfolding.Over the past 10 days, more than a dozen government offices in eastern Ukraine have been taken over by pro-Russian forces, with most of the seizures following the same pattern. Aggressive gangs, sometimes carrying firearms and wearing military fatigues, storm the buildings. The Ukrainian flag is replaced with a Russian one. Then local men move in to hold them.Those capturing the buildings insist they are carrying out the will of the people and have demanded a referendum on autonomy for the eastern Donetsk region. Relatively small numbers have hit the streets in support, however, and it is increasingly evident the purported uprising is far from spontaneous and is being carried out with unerring coordination.Russia has tens of thousands of troops massed along Ukraine's eastern border. Western governments accuse Moscow of fueling the unrest and worry that the specter of bloodshed could be used as a pretext for a Russian invasion, in a repeat of events in Crimea a few weeks ago.The Ukrainian government's inability to quash the pro-Russian insurgency was highlighted by acting President Oleksandr Turchynov's call Monday for the deployment of United Nations peacekeeping troops in the east of his country. He said the presence of Russian meddling was clear in the unrest gripping his country."The Russian Federation is sending special units to the east of our country, which seize administrative buildings with the use of weapons and are putting the lives of hundreds of thousands of our citizens in danger," Turchynov said, according to the presidential web-site.Peacekeepers, however, would have to be authorized by the U.N. Security Council, where Russia holds a veto.Pro-Russian activists point to what they say is an aggressively nationalistic government as justification for their actions. The Cabinet in charge since the overthrow of President Viktor Yanukovych in February includes some nationalist figures, but there is no substantive evidence the Russian-speaking population has been subject to any widespread intimidation in recent weeks.The relative ease with which pro-Russian groups have been able to overwhelm resistance was in full display Monday in the Donetsk region city of Horlivka.Hundreds of local people gathered in a square in front of the local police station. Oleksandr Sapunov, who described himself as the head of a public self-defense unit in Horlivka, said the crowd was fighting against appointees of the Kiev government, including the local police chief."The people came to tell him that he is a puppet of the Kiev junta and they won't accept him," Sapunov said.Then came the moment for the switchover of the flag from Ukrainian to Russian. But in Horlivka, the head of the police force came to the ledge, chasing the man with Russian tricolor and knocking him 20 feet (6 meters) to the ground, where he banged his head.The crowd vented its fury. Within seconds, the people hurled stones. The police inside sought to disperse them with stun grenades and by firing guns into the air, but the building was taken within about an hour.Shortly afterward, men in fatigues marched the chief of police, blood gushing from his head, to an ambulance outside. The onlookers shouted "Donbass! Donbass!" the name of the Donetsk region, and "Ros-si-ya," or Russia.Details of another assault also followed a similar script.In the town of Slovyansk, a dozen armed men, many in new-looking military fatigues, swiftly and professionally secured control over the police station Saturday. A day later, local guys wearing regular clothes stood watch, using weapons raided from police stores.Beyond a barricade blocking the road to the police headquarters, a few hundred people chanted calls for a referendum on autonomy and gave renditions of the Russian anthem.These episodes have fed into accusations from the government in Kiev and Western officials that protests are being instigated by the Kremlin and that some of the insurgents are in fact Russian agents.Boris Grozovsky, a commentator with the independent Russian website Colta.ru, used the fuel and matches analogy to underscore the apparent involvement of outside agents."In all the cities in Ukraine where there have been disturbances, it is always outsiders that have acted as the armed attackers and provocateurs," he said.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov again denied Monday that Russian agents were operating in eastern Ukraine, saying it would contradict Moscow's interests. He challenged Ukraine "not to be shy" about backing its claims of capturing Russian security officers with facts.Eyewitnesses have reported multiple sightings of camouflaged militia similar to those seen in Crimea before that peninsula's annexation and which are widely believed to have been following order from Moscow."These armed units ... raised Russian and separatist flags over seized buildings and have called referendums and union with Russia," U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power said during a UN Security Council session Sunday. "We know who is behind this."Ever since Yanukovych fled to Russia in late February, the Kremlin has demanded constitutional reforms that would turn Ukraine into a loose federal state.Dmitry Peskov, the spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, was quoted by Russian news agencies as saying Monday that Putin has received "numerous appeals" from eastern Ukraine "asking him to help and interfere in one way or another." Peskov added that Putin was "watching the developments in those regions with great concern" but wouldn't elaborate.Meanwhile, Putin urged President Barack Obama to discourage the Ukrainian government from using force against protesters in the country's east.The Kremlin said in a statement following Monday's conversation that the Russian leader rejected the claims of Russian agents' involvement in protests as "speculations based on unreliable information." Putin said the protests vented public anger about the Ukrainian government's reluctance to recognize the interests of Russian speakers in the east. In a development that could help fuel recurring Russian allegation of U.S. interference, White House press secretary Jay Carney confirmed Monday that CIA chief John Brennan had visited Ukraine over the weekend. The CIA denied Brennan had used his trip to advise Ukrainian authorities on tactical operations. After refusing demands for a referendum by breakaway supporters in the east, Turchynov indicated Monday that holding a nationwide referendum on the country's status was a possibility and that such a vote could be conducted on May 25, along with presidential elections.Turchynov expressed confidence that Ukrainians would vote against turning the country into a federation and against its break-up. Russia, meanwhile, has frequently and vocally expressed support for federalization.A deadline set by the Ukrainian government for pro-Russian gunmen to leave government buildings in eastern Ukraine and surrender weapons passed without incident early Monday, with no immediate sign of any action to liberate any seized buildings.So far, there's no script for that.__Danilova reported from Kiev.

Fires still besiege Chile port; 15 dead, 500 hurt

VALPARAISO, Chile (AP) — Helicopters and airplanes dumped water on wildfires and the smoldering wreckage of hilltop neighborhoods around Valparaiso for a third straight day Monday as sailors in riot gear stood ready to evacuate 700 more families whose homes could be lost if the winds shifted.Already 8,000 people were homeless as wildfires sent burning embers flying from hilltop to hilltop. A 15th body was found, and the toll of destroyed homes rose to more than 2,150. As smoke rose from smoldering ruins all over the picturesque coastal city, many compared the scene to Dante's inferno.Some people made their way home after days without sleep, only to discover ruins. The fires, so hot they created their own fierce winds, consumed a few entire neighborhoods. In other districts, some houses stood unscathed but remained in danger from glowing embers carried by the shifting winds."We are looking at the largest air operation ever assembled against a fire like this," Chilean President Michelle Bachelet said. She said the blazes had grown to "dimensions never before seen."Chile's forestry agency predicted it would take three weeks to completely stamp out the fires, which began Saturday in a forested ravine and quickly spread into ramshackle housing on one of Valparaiso's 42 hills.Hot dry winds blowing out to sea whipped embers onto other neighborhoods on six densely populated hills where people live in poorly constructed homes without municipal water or sewer connections, fire hydrants or streets wide enough for emergency vehicles.On Monday, there was no end in sight. Helicopters were flying without pause, dumping water on hotspots.Aid was flowing in from all over Chile to Valparaiso, where evacuees crowded into eight shelters. Hundreds of young volunteers climbed hills carrying bottles of water and shovels to help victims search the ruins of their homes."We're going to rebuild right here. Where else would we go?" said Carolina Ovando, 22, who lost the humble home she kept with three small children.Schools were closed, some of them damaged by fires and others jammed with evacuees. Navy officer Julio Leiva said Monday that the death toll rose to 15. Most of the bodies were too badly burned to identify without DNA tests, the national forensics service said. More than 500 people were treated at hospitals, mostly for smoke inhalation.Bachelet coordinated the emergency response with her Cabinet, cancelling a trip to Argentina and Uruguay. She asked Chile's neighbors for backup in case of other fires, freeing Chilean planes and helicopters to join the fleet in Valparaiso.Argentine Foreign Minister Hector Timerman promised to collaborate with rescue teams and water-dumping planes. From the Vatican, Pope Francis sent a message sharing his prayers.Bachelet put the entire city under military rule, and 5,000 firefighters, police, forest rangers, soldiers, sailors and civil defense workers joined the response. Cars were banned from streets leading up eight of the Valparaiso's hills so emergency vehicles could get through. Valparaiso is an oceanside city of 250,000 people surrounded by hills that form a natural amphitheater. The compact downtown includes Chile's congress and its second-largest port, and the city owes its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site to the colorful homes built on slopes so steep that many people commute using stairs and cable cars.But what's beautiful on postcards can be dangerous for those who live there: Many people have built on land not fit for housing."We are too vulnerable as a city. We have been the builders and architects of our own danger," Valparaiso Mayor Jorge Castro said Sunday in an interview with Chile's 24H channel.
