PA to form plan for extensive ‘disengagement’ from Israel-Palestinians to explore going it alone on economy, security, currency; move seen as tactic to appease Palestinian public rather than real bid for change-By Khaled Abu Toameh-TOI-FEB 6,18

The Palestinian Authority government on Tuesday decided to form a committee to prepare plans for “disengagement” from Israel.The government also decided to task another committee with devising a plan to replace the Israeli shekel with any other currency, including a new Palestinian one.Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip do not have their own currency and continue to rely mostly on the Israeli shekel, Jordanian dinar, and US dollar.PA employees in both the West Bank and Gaza Strip receive their salaries in shekels.The latest move to disengage from Israel came in response to a decision last Saturday by the PLO Executive Committee, a key decision-making body dominated by loyalists of PA President Mahmoud Abbas. The committee, at the end of a three-hour meeting chaired by Abbas, asked the PA government to immediately devise plans for “disengagement” between the Palestinians and Israel on all levels, including security and economy.The Palestinians have long complained their economy remains too dependent on Israel.Similar decisions taken by various Palestinian bodies in the past, including halting security coordination with Israel, have never been carried out and are mostly intended to appease the Palestinian public.PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah was quoted at the weekly cabinet meeting as saying that “settlement expansion” and Israeli military control over Area C, as well as Israeli restrictions imposed on the Palestinians living there, constituted the main obstacle to the existence of a strong Palestinian economy.Under the terms of the Oslo Accords, Area C refers to those parts of the West Bank that are under full Israeli civil and security control.Hamdallah called on donor countries to pressure Israel to remove, and not only ease, all restrictions imposed on Palestinians residing in Area C.He also appealed to the donor countries to support various Palestinian projects, including the establishment of an airport and a seaport in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.The PA government expressed “deep gratitude” for the EU’s commitment to provide 42.5 million euros ($52.4 million) in aid to “support Palestinian presence” in East Jerusalem and the West Bank city of Hebron and to boost economic development in various fields in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.The PA condemned the recent US decision to add Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh to the American list of global terrorists, claiming it paves the way for the assassination of Palestinian leaders.“This decision provides Israel with a cover to continue its crimes against our people and leaders,” said a statement released after the meeting in Ramallah.The PA government accused the US administration of remaining silent toward “organized state terrorism that is being perpetrated and encouraged by the Israeli government.”It also condemned Israel’s latest security measures in the West Bank, which came in response to terror attacks that claimed the lives of Rabbi Itamar Ben-Gal and Rabbi Raziel Shevach.“The last brutal campaign in Jenin and its towns and refugee camp underscores the quick need for providing international protection (for the Palestinians) in the face of these crimes,” the statement added, renewing the call to the international community for holding Israel accountable.It was referring to a series of IDF raids on several villages and towns in Jenin and its surrounding villages and towns in the past two weeks in search of Ahmed Jarrar, the main suspect in the murder of Shevach. Jarrar was killed by the IDF on Tuesday morning.The PA cabinet also denounced the recent Jerusalem Municipality move to collect taxes properties owned by churches and UN agencies and accused Israel of pushing forward with plans to “Judaize” East Jerusalem and “displace” the city’s Arab residents.

Senior Palestinians sue PA over alleged CIA-backed wiretapping-Disillusioned ex-surveillance officer says Palestinian and US security services jointly monitored thousands of phone calls. 'Nonsense,' says the PA-By Agencies-TOI-FEB 6,18

A former Palestinian intelligence chief and the head of the West Bank bar association are suing the Palestinian Authority after a purported whistle blower alleged the two were targeted, along with many other allies and rivals of PA President Mahmoud Abbas, in a large-scale CIA-backed wiretapping operation.Allegations of continued intelligence-sharing with the United States could prove embarrassing for Abbas, who has been on a political collision course with Washington since US President Donald Trump’s recognition in December of  Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.The claims are contained in a 37-page anonymous document that was been shared widely among Palestinians, mostly on WhatsApp. The document alleges that three of the Palestinian security services set up a joint electronic surveillance unit in mid-2014 and monitored the phone calls of thousands of Palestinians, from senior figures in terror groups to judges, lawyers, civic leaders and political allies of Abbas.The author describes himself as a former member of the surveillance unit who quit “this dirty job” several months ago because of his growing opposition to Palestinian government practices, including intelligence-sharing with the United States. He wrote that Trump’s policy shift on Jerusalem provided another impetus to go public.Bar association head Jawad Obeidat told The Associated Press on Monday that transcripts of his phone conversations, as published in the document, were accurate.“I made these phone calls and this is evidence that the leaked report is true,” said Obeidat, who spearheaded recent protests by lawyers after one of them was arrested from a court room during a legal case against the government.“This is a blatant violation of human rights,” he said.Tawfiq Tirawi, an outspoken Abbas critic and West Bank intelligence chief from 1994 to 2008, said he checked with his contacts and believes the document is authentic.The CIA declined comment.-In mid-January, when the document first surfaced, Palestinian security services said in a joint statement that it was part of a “plot” seeking to harm the political and security establishments.Adnan Damiri, the spokesman of the security services, dismissed the document Monday as “nonsense.”The allegations come at a low point in Palestinian relations with the United States, following Trump’s policy pivot on Jerusalem.Abbas said at the time that he was suspending contacts with US officials dealing with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The US shift on Jerusalem angered many Palestinians, and in this context, allegations of continued intelligence-sharing with the US could pose a domestic political problem for Abbas.The 82-year-old has also faced pushback from critics who say his rule has become increasingly authoritarian.Elected in 2005, Abbas has ruled by decree since 2007, when the terror group Hamas overran Gaza, leaving him with autonomous enclaves in the West Bank. The territorial split and deep animosity between the Abbas- and Hamas-led camps paralyzed political institutions, including parliament, and prevented new elections.Last week, Tirawi and Obeidat filed a complaint over the alleged wire-tapping against the PA, calling for a criminal investigation. The lawsuit asked that those who ordered the monitoring of their phones be punished and demanded an end to all wiretapping as a violation of privacy.Attorney General Ahmed Barrak confirmed that he received the complaint, but declined further comment.Separately, the Palestinian human rights group Al-Haq demanded an investigation into the extent of the wiretapping and an explanation from the government. The head of Al-Haq, Shahwan Jabareen, said he has not received a response from the attorney general or the office of Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah.Jabareen said an investigation must determine if the wiretapping went beyond monitoring terrorists who pose an immediate security threat. If the bar association was targeted, he said, the government might also be spying on other civil society organizations and ordinary people.“We are not against security, but it has to be legal,” he said.The document alleged that thousands of phones are being monitored without legal authorization, including those of leaders and senior operatives in Hamas, the terror group Islamic Jihad and other factions.Others being monitored include members of Abbas’ inner circle, such as the No. 2 in his Fatah movement and members of the decision-making body of the Palestine Liberation Organization, the document said. Abbas rivals are also on the list, including the family of imprisoned uprising leader Marwan Barghouti and supporters of Abbas’ former top aide-turned-nemesis, the exiled Mohammed Dahlan, according to the document.It said that in 2013, the then-head of the Palestinian Preventive Security Service asked the CIA for help with wiretapping and that the CIA agreed, in exchange for oversight.The document said the equipment was provided by ISS World, a company based in Virginia.Jerry Lucas, the president of the ISS World parent company, TeleStrategies, declined comment when contacted by email Monday by The Associated Press.The document said members of the Palestinian surveillance unit were trained on the new equipment on the sidelines of an ISS World conference in Dubai.The document included a copy of an invitation letter purportedly issued by TeleStrategies to two senior Palestinian security officers to attend an “ISS World Middle East Intelligence Support Systems Conference” at the Dubai Marriott from March 3-5, 2014.The date and venue of the conference in the invitation match those on the ISS website.Palestinian security officials acknowledged in the past, in private conservations, that they were engaged in domestic phone monitoring and other types of surveillance, going back to the 1990s.However, the latest allegations, if confirmed, suggest spying has become more sophisticated and broader in scope.Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.

Rabbi slain in terror attack buried in settlement where he lived-Knesset speaker praises 'dedicated teacher' Itamar Ben-Gal who was stabbed to death; agriculture minister calls for annexing West Bank in response-By Jacob Magid and Stuart Winer-TOI-FEB 6,18

Hundreds of people participated in the funeral Tuesday for a rabbi killed in a West Bank terror attack a day earlier, escorting the victim as he was laid to rest in the Har Bracha settlement where he lived.Itamar Ben-Gal, 29, was stabbed to death while waiting at a hitchhiking post near the settlement of Ariel on Monday, as he headed to a circumcision ceremony for his nephew. He was survived by his wife, Miriam, and four children.His suspected killer, Abed al-Karim Assi, 19, managed to evade capture following the attack, even after an IDF officer hit him with his car while in pursuit.At the gravesite, Miriam Ben-Gal said, “Itamar, my dear, we will continue settling the land and raising our family.”Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein, Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel, and Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben Dahan were also at the ceremony.“The country has lost a righteous person,” Edelstein said in a eulogy for Ben-Gal. “What a terrible loss. With Miriam, he built a family life… he was a dedicated teacher who treated each of his students as a son.”“The terrorist saw the smile that he always had on his face and the light that was always in his eyes,” he continued. “He tried to wipe off the smile and put out the light. This was the same desire of the killer of Raziel Shevach.”Shevach, a resident of the outpost of Havat Gilad, was killed in a West Bank shooting attack in January. The prime suspect in that attack, Ahmad Nassar Jarrar, was shot dead by security forces early Tuesday morning during an arrest operation in the West Bank city of Jenin, following a three-week manhunt.Ben-Gal, originally from Rehovot, lived in Har Bracha, a community of some 2,500 people on the outskirts of Nablus in the West Bank. He was a middle school teacher at a yeshiva in the Tel Aviv suburb of Givat Shmuel.His father, Daniel, said, “The Israeli education system has lost a great and devoted educator and we are left orphaned by him.“You were so dedicated to your students’ education. We will continue to take care of your sweet children.”Speaking at the grave, Ben-Gal’s widow Miriam vowed: “We will continue settling this land and raising our family.”Assi, the man suspected of killing Ben-Gal, holds Israeli citizenship and lives in Jaffa, defense officials said hours after the stabbing. His blue Israeli ID card allowed him passage to both sides of the Green Line. His father lives in Nablus and his mother in Haifa.Ariel, the agriculture minister, of the settlement-supporting Jewish Home party, urged annexing the West Bank and ending the family reunification program that enabled Assi to receive an Israeli ID card.“The time has come for the recognition of the Land of Israel,” Ariel said. “We will not allow the unification of families. We, in the government, are responsible for security and also for retribution, for the building of the land of Lsrael. We don’t need to wait for someone to be murdered to build Havat Gilad or Har Bracha… From the [Jordan] river to the [Mediterranean] sea there will be one country; no other nation will be sovereign in this area.The time has come for sovereignty.”Samaria Regional Council chairman Yossi Dagan, who heads the municipal body overseeing northern West Bank settlements, demanded that the government take stronger action against terrorism, and blamed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for the attacks.“We expect answers today — not just the residents of Samaria, but the entire nation of Israel demands clear answers. It is unacceptable that in less than a month in Samaria, two terror attacks took the lives of two Jews. It is unacceptable that the checkpoints have not returned. It is unacceptable that in broad daylight, in the middle of a main junction, in the middle of Israel, a murderous terrorist can exit a taxi and murder a Jew without fear.”“The answer is not a fake security cooperation (with the Palestinian Authority) but a determined war not only on the terrorists, but on their accomplices, those who send them, and those who incite them in the Palestinian Authority,” Dagan continued. “I say to them and to their leader, the terrorist Mahmoud Abbas, cursed be his name: You will not break us.”

Fatah-linked Gaza group shows off mortar shell production-Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades offshoot exhibits activists assembling bombs, boasts Israel 'within range of our shells'-By TOI staff-FEB 6,18

A Gaza-based group associated with the terrorist al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades on Sunday posted a video clip showing its members produce 120-mm mortar bombs and threatening that Israel is “within range of our shells.”The video, translated by MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute, shows how mortars and the explosive shells that they propel are assembled and put in position to fire.The Nidal Al-‘Amoudi Battalion, one of several in the coastal enclave linked to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction, credits the video to its “Engineering and Production Unit.”Al-Amoudi, after whom the splinter group is named, was killed by Israeli forces in 2008 after carrying out a series of attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers during the Second Intifada between 2000 and 2005.Its parent organization, the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, is based in the West Bank and designated as a terror organization by the US, the European Union, Israel, Canada, and Japan.Gaza is ruled by the terrorist Hamas organization, which has been trying to reach a reconciliation deal with Abbas’s Fatah after a decade-long split.

Palestinian mother and daughter held for planning terror attack-Authorities say the two, aged 48 and 16, also suspected of incitement to terror, possession of illegal firearms-FEB 6,18-By TOI staff

4:20 pm-Hezbollah threatens to attack Israel over gas reserves-The Lebanese terror group Hezbollah warns that anyone who threatens Lebanon’s gas or oil reserves will face an attack.The statement, delivered by the organization’s media outlets, is directed at Israel, which Lebanon accuses of seeking to develop natural gas reserves in Lebanese sovereign waters.3:41 pm-More deadly regime strikes as Syria toll mounts-SAQBA, Syria — Fresh regime strikes on a besieged rebel-held enclave near Damascus kill 35 civilians on Tuesday despite mounting Western pressure on Syrian President Bashar Assad.The bloodshed comes a day after another 31 civilians were killed in Eastern Ghouta and as the United Nations pleaded for a truce in the seven-year-old conflict to allow for aid deliveries.Fighting also rages in the northwestern province of Idlib, where the UN says the violence “made a mockery” of the de-escalation zones agreed last year in a bid to pave the way for an end to the war.The latest casualties in Ghouta, on paper also a de-escalation zone, come as Washington threatens military action over the reported use of chemical weapons in the enclave, which regime and allied forces have besieged since 2013.— AFP-3:34 pm-Holland mulls ending law against insulting king-THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Dutch MPs will this week debate the touchy subject of scrapping royal defamation laws, but the issue has exposed rifts within the fragile ruling coalition, news reports say.The Netherlands remains one of the few countries that still maintains “lese majeste” laws, dating back to 1830, making it a criminal offense to insult Dutch King Willem-Alexander.Parliament’s lower house will on Thursday discuss a bill proposed by the progressive D66 party, which would drop clauses against defaming the king contained within wider laws on crimes against the royalty.First deemed a crime in 1830 and taken up in the Dutch statute books in 1886, in modern times the law “implied restricting freedom of speech,” D66 parliamentarian Kees Verhoeven says in the proposed bill, penned in early 2016.— AFP-3:27 pm-Former caregiver for Ariel terrorist recalls troubled youth-New details are emerging about the motive of alleged terrorist Abed al-Karim Assi, 19, who stabbed a rabbi to death on Monday.Assi was “a boy in crisis,” one caregiver from Assi’s troubled youth told the Hadashot television news network.“His mother didn’t acknowledge him from a young age, and the father lives in Nablus and also didn’t want to acknowledge him [as a son],” the man says.Assi was “loved by staff and other youth” at the troubled-youth program, the man says, adding that when he heard the name of the suspected terrorist he was “shocked.”“He never said anything nationalistic. He had no political interests at all, and never expressed any hatred toward us [Jews],” he adds.2:44 pm-Palestinian mother, 48, and daughter, 16, held for planning terror attack-A Palestinian mother and her teenage daughter are arrested on suspicion of planning to carry out a terror attack.According to the Ynet news site, the two, identified by authorities only by their ages — the mother is 48 and the daughter 16 — are also suspected of inciting terror attacks and possession of illegal firearms. The mother is also facing charges for allegedly assaulting the police officers who arrested her.Their remand is extended on Tuesday until next Sunday.2:17 pm-Ariel terrorist’s estranged mother calls on him to turn himself in-The terrorist who stabbed to death an Israeli father of four on Monday should turn himself in to security forces, his mother tells Israel’s Channel 10 television news.Abed al-Karim Assi, 19, is suspected of stabbing to death Rabbi Itamar Ben-Gal, 29, at the Ariel Junction in the northern West Bank.Assi holds Israeli citizenship and lives in Jaffa, defense officials said late Monday. He managed to evade capture following the attack, even after an IDF officer hit him with his car while in pursuit.Assi’s father lives in Nablus and his mother in Haifa. She tells Channel 10 she “hasn’t seen my son in a long time.” She says his actions “are unacceptable.”“What he did just ruined his life. He has no right to take a life,” she says.

Rare dinosaur discovered in Egypt, could signal more finds-Paleontologists say skeleton of bus-sized plant-eater Mansourasaurus could be the tip of the sand dune for other desert discoveries-By MAGGIE HYDE-TOI-FEB 6,18

MANSOURA, Egypt (AP) — A skeleton has been unearthed in Egypt’s Western Desert, whose ancient sands have long helped preserve remains, but unlike most finds this one isn’t a mummy — it’s a dinosaur.Researchers from Mansoura University in the country’s Nile Delta discovered the new species of long-necked herbivore, which is around the size of a city bus, and it could be just the tip of the sand dune for other desert dinosaur discoveries.“As in any ecosystem, if we went to the jungle we’ll find a lion and a giraffe. So we found the giraffe, where’s the lion?” said Hesham Sallam, leader of the excavation team and head of the university’s Center for Vertebrate Paleontology.Sallam, along with four Egyptian and five American researchers, authored an article in the journal “Nature Ecology & Evolution” published January 29 announcing the discovery.Experts say the find is a landmark discovery that could shed light on a particularly obscure period of history for the African continent, roughly the 30 million years before dinosaurs went extinct, between 70 and 80 million years ago.Named “Mansourasaurus Shahinae” after the team’s university and for one of the paleontology department’s founders, the find is the only dinosaur from that period to have been discovered in Africa, and it may even be an undiscovered genus.In the article the authors say the team’s findings “counter hypotheses that dinosaur faunas of the African mainland were completely isolated” during the late Mesozoic period. That is, previous theories were that Africa’s dinosaurs during that time existed as if on an island and developed independently from their northern cousins.But Mansourasaurus’ fossilized skeletal remains suggest an anatomy not very different from those discovered in Europe from the same period, an indication that a land connection between Africa and its northern neighbor may have existed.While Egypt has a long history of archaeology, paleontology has not enjoyed the same popularity — or had the same success.In 1911, the German paleontologist Ernst Stromer led an exhibition to the oasis of Bahriya, also in Egypt’s Western Desert. There, he discovered four species of dinosaurs, including a predatory type known as the Spinosaurus, all from the Cretaceous period. But all of his findings were later lost in Allied bombing of the Munich Museum during World War II.Sallam said researchers don’t know how Mansourasaurus lived and died, except for the fact that it was a plant eater. There’s no indication whether it lived alone or in a herd.The bones do bear resemblance to another dinosaur discovery in Egypt, that of the Paralititan Stromeri, excavated by an American team from the University of Pennsylvania, whose findings were published in 2001. But only in so much as both were long-necked herbivores grazers. The Paralititan Stromeri is believed to have been among the largest known animals, weighing in at 75 tons and over 30 meters (33 yards) long.The Mansourasaurus’ smaller size is more typical of the Mesozoic era, when dinosaurs’ time was running out, geologically speaking, according to Sallam. With a long neck and tail, his torso would’ve been similar to that of an African elephant and measuring tip-to-tale over 10 meters (11 yards) and weighing several tons.Egypt’s Western Desert would have more closely resembled a coastal jungle during the dinosaur’s lifetime, with half of what is the country today under water.Though finding a dinosaur bone in a vast desert may seem akin to a needle in a haystack, it was also the product of back-breaking work. The team had been scouring the area of the find more than 750 kilometers (466 miles) southwest of the capital for five years before they found the partial skeleton of the Mansourasaurus in 2013.Sallam said he and a group of doctoral and master’s degree students were heading to give a lecture at a local university when they stumbled on a desert road with the appropriate geological outcroppings that they hadn’t noticed before. The next morning, the team returned to survey it, covering an area of several kilometers. It wasn’t long after they started that one of the students called him on the phone, saying that he should come see the number of bones she’d found.Sallam said he knew from the first small piece of fossil he was shown that it was a big deal.“When I first saw it I told them, if this comes out as I expect, your names will go down in history,” he told his students.There is now some hope the discovery could bring more funding for the paleontology field in Egypt and financing for ongoing studies, Sallam said. But he said he’s most proud of making science real for people who otherwise aren’t exposed to it as much.“I mean, we’ve made the average Egyptian man, or the Arab man, talk about dinosaurs,” he said.

Janet Yellen: I would have liked to serve another term as head of Fed-US central bank chief, who will take up a position at fiscal think tank, says she was disappointed to have not been reappointed by Trump-By JTA-TOI-FEB 6,18

Janet Yellen said she was disappointed that US President Donald Trump did not keep her on for a second term as Federal Reserve chairwoman.“I would have liked to serve an additional term and I did make that clear, so I will say I was disappointed not to be reappointed,” Yellen told “PBS NewsHour” on Friday.Yellen officially ended her four-year term on Saturday. She had submitted her resignation from the board of governors of the Federal Reserve in November after Trump, in a break with tradition, did not reappoint her. Trump instead nominated current Federal Reserve Governor Jerome Powell to take over as head of the central bank.Yellen, 71, could have chosen to remain a governor, since she was appointed to the board by president Barack Obama for an unexpired term ending in 2024. However, The Wall Street Journal reported that she chose to leave for a position at a fiscal think tank. Starting Monday, Yellen will become a distinguished fellow in residence in economic studies at the Hutchins Center on Fiscal and Monetary Policy at the Brookings Institution.Ben Bernanke, Yellen’s predecessor, also is a fellow at the Washington, DC, center.During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump alleged that Yellen kept interest rates low for political reasons to benefit Obama.Yellen was the first woman to serve as Fed chair. She and her husband, George Akerlof, a 2001 Nobel economics laureate, were active in the Bay Area Jewish community when Akerlof taught at the University of California, Berkeley.

Iran announces mass production of bomb-carrying drones-Defense minister inaugurates factory for building UAVs that are to be supplied to Revolutionary Guard Corps-By Stuart Winer-TOI-FEB 6,18

Iran on Monday opened a production line to build attack drones that it said can carry smart munitions and strike a variety of targets, Iranian media reported.Iranian Defense Minister Amir Hatami opened the facility in Tehran that will reportedly manufacture Iran’s Mohajer 6 unmanned aerial vehicle, or UAV.The commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps’ ground forces, Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour, was also at the event.Hatami boasted that the drone can carry Iran’s home-produced Qaem smart bombs and that it has various electro-optical sensors for acquiring stationary and moving targets during night- and daytime operations.The drone, he said, can also carry out long-range reconnaissance and combat missions as well as use short runways for takeoff and landing, Iranian state Press TV reported. It will be supplied to the Revolution Guard Corps.Hatami did not specify how far the drones can fly.In September 2017 Israel shot down what was believed to be an Iranian-manufactured drone operated by the Hezbollah terror group as it flew into Israeli airspace over the Golan Heights. The UAV was hit with a Patriot missile.In 2015, Press TV quoted IRGC second-in-command Brigadier General Hossein Salami as saying the country had developed UAVs that can fly 3,000 kilometers) 1,860 miles), a distance that would put Israel in range.

Italy’s Berlusconi: 600,000 migrants ‘ready’ to commit crime-Ex-PM vows Africans will be deported if his center-right party wins March elections, says they are a 'social bomb ready to explode'-By Frances D'Emilio-TOI-FEB 6,18

ROME (AP) — Former Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi has asserted that 600,000 migrants who arrived illegally in Italy are “ready” to commit crimes, and he vowed they would be sent back to their homelands if an election next month propels his center-right party into government.The leaders of the main rival parties in the March 4 parliamentary election retorted Monday that some policies from Berlusconi’s three stints in office helped create the conditions that brought so many newcomers to Italy.Italy’s experience with the hundreds of thousands of people who arrived after being rescued from smugglers’ boats in the Mediterranean Sea in the last few years has dominated much of the pre-election campaigning.But the migrant issue took on even more energy Saturday, when an Italian gunman allegedly shot and wounded six Africans from his car in the central Italian town of Macerata. Police have described the suspect as a far-right extremist with neo-Nazi sympathies.The drive-by attack followed the arrest of a Nigerian man in the slaying of an 18-year-old Italian woman shortly after walking away from a drug rehabilitation center in the area.In an interview Sunday with TG5, a news program that is part of his media empire, Berlusconi cited the large number of rescued migrants who have landed in Italy since 2013, when the current center-left government led by the Democratic Party came to power.“The result is that today we have almost 630,000 immigrants, of which only 30,000 have the right to stay here because they are refugees,” Berlusconi said. “Another 600,000 are tantamount to a social bomb ready to explode, because they live by the expedient of committing crimes.”The former prime minister cannot run for office due to a tax fraud conviction. But Berlusconi is campaigning so his Forza Italia party, in alliance with a right-wing anti-migrant party and a smaller party with neo-fascist roots, can gain enough seats in Parliament to form a coalition government.Democratic Party leader Matteo Renzi, also a former premier, blamed part of the problem on Berlusconi.“If in Italy migrants are arriving, it’s because someone made war in Libya, and the premier was Berlusconi,” Renzi said in a reference to NATO’s 2011 air strike campaign against Muammar Gaddafi’s regime.After Gaddafi’s ouster, chaos took hold in the North African nation, and human traffickers resumed the lucrative business of launching unseaworthy boats crowded with people wanting to make it to Europe.Also seizing on the Libya example Monday was Luigi Di Maio, who is running for what the populist 5-Star Movement hopes will be its first premiership. The 5-Stars have themselves taken a hard line on immigration.“Berlusconi created the social bomb of immigration by the bombing of Libya,” Di Maio said.The 31-year-old lawmaker added, “I ask Italians to check their memory about what this 81-year-old gentleman did when he was in government.”The first candidate Di Maio presented last week in his Movement’s ticket for Parliament was a retired admiral who boasted he took part in the NATO campaign against Libya. The admiral was removed as a candidate, officially for other reasons.
