Israeli settler leader says settlements grew rapidly in 2017-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-February 21, 2018

JERUSALEM — The number of Jewish settlers in the West Bank grew at nearly twice the rate of Israel's overall population last year, a settler leader said Monday, predicting that settlement growth would surge even more in the coming years thanks in part to the Trump presidency.Yaakov Katz said that President Donald Trump, backed by a Mideast team dominated by settler supporters, has created a friendly new atmosphere conducive to settlement growth after eight contentious years with the Obama White House."This is the first time, after years, that we are surrounded by people who really like us, love us, and they are not trying to be objective," Katz said. "We have to thank God he sent Trump to be president of the United States."Katz is founder of "West Bank Jewish Population Stats," a report sponsored by "Bet El Institutions," a prominent settler organization that has ties to Trump's closest Mideast advisers. He said the figures are based on official data from the Israeli Interior Ministry not yet available to the public.According to his figures, the West Bank settler population reached 435,159 as of Jan. 1, up 3.4 per cent from 420,899 a year earlier. The settler population has grown 21.4 per cent in the last five years.In comparison, Israel's total population grew 1.8 per cent to 8.743 million last year, according to the Central Bureau of Statistics.Katz said the rapid growth of the settlements should put to rest the idea of a two-state solution favoured by the Palestinians and most of the international community.Based on recent growth patterns, he said the West Bank settler population could approach 500,000 by the time Trump leaves office. His study did not include the more than 200,000 Israelis now living in east Jerusalem, the Palestinians' hoped-for capital."We are changing the map," he said. "The idea of the two-state solution is over. It is irreversible."The Palestinians seek the West Bank, along with east Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip, for a future independent state. Israel captured the territories in the 1967 Mideast war, though it withdrew from Gaza in 2005.A string of U.S. presidents, both Republican and Democrat, have endorsed the idea of a two-state solution and have joined the international community in opposing settlements as obstacles to peace.But after years of failed U.S.-led peace efforts, Trump has taken a different line. He says he would support a two-state solution only if both sides agree to it. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's nationalist coalition is dominated by settler allies who oppose Palestinian independence.Trump also has taken a softer stance toward the settlements, urging restraint at times but avoiding the strong condemnations of his predecessors. His ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, is a former president of Bet El Institutions. His chief Mideast adviser, son-in-law Jared Kushner, has donated to the group, and even Trump once sent a donation.These deep ties to the settlements have helped fuel Palestinian suspicions of the White House. Those suspicions deepened after Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December, prompting the Palestinians to say the U.S. can no longer be an honest Mideast broker. Trump's team has been working on a peace proposal, though it is not clear when it will be released.Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said the figures reflect an Israeli policy of building settlements to destroy the two-state solution. He said Trump's muted response encourages more settlement building."What is required of the world, including the American administration, is to condemn the settlements as illegitimate and illegal and to recognize the principle of two states on the 1967 borders," he said. "if they want to keep hope in any future peace process, they must stop these plans."Brian Reeves, spokesman for Peace Now, an anti-settlement monitoring group, said it could not corroborate Katz's figures but that they are in the "ballpark" of its own estimates.Katz said the settlement growth has been fueled both by natural growth of the population, which is heavily religious and tends to have larger families, as well as the attraction of cheaper housing in the West Bank.He predicted even faster growth in the coming years, claiming that the Trump White House has given Netanyahu a "green light" to advance construction."Bibi is less afraid of what the president will say about him," he said. "We are very, very, very happy with the Trump administration."Josef Federman, The Associated Press.

State asks court for 3-month delay in razing illegal outpost-Postponement of March 6 Netiv Ha'avot demolition would buy time to build temporary community for 15 families on adjacent hilltop-By Jacob Magid-TOI-21 February 2018

The state urged the High Court of Justice to delay its sanctioned demolition of the illegal Netiv Ha’avot outpost in the West Bank by three months, in a petition submitted Tuesday on behalf of the residents.Presented 14 days ahead of the slated razing, the purpose of the appeal is to provide time for the construction of a caravan community approved by the government last month for the 15 families on an adjacent hilltop.In addition, the delay would allow for the advancement of another plan that would grant post-facto building permits to seven of the 15 homes slated for demolition on the grounds that they sit only marginally on land that does not belong to the state.If adopted, the plan would see the “problematic parts” of those seven homes sawed off, while the rest of the structure would be allowed to remain standing. This would mean that only eight homes would require complete demolition by security forces.The High Court petition was also accompanied by a letter signed by each of the families pledging “to evacuate the homes without resistance, without violence, and refrain from bringing demonstrators into [their] homes as much as [they] can.”While she complied with the government’s request to sign the letter “out of responsibility to her children,” Netiv Ha’avot resident Rachel Bulvik called the measure “offensive.”“We wouldn’t have been violent in the first place,” she told The Times of Israel, pointing out that what protesting youth do on the day of the evacuation is out of the residents’ control and that the letter does nothing to prevent that.Upon submission of the petition, the 15 families released a joint statement explaining that they signed the letter to ensure that their 62 children “would not be left without a roof over their heads.”They called on the government to legalize their entire outpost and advance the construction of another 350 homes in response to the demolition.While they agreed to refrain from inviting demonstrators into their homes to obstruct the approaching demolition, hundreds of youth are still expected to descend on Netiv Ha’avot on the day of the evacuation.Last month, the residents hosted roughly 1,000 youth for the Sabbath in an effort to recruit support ahead of the March razing. A staple at past demolitions of Israeli settlements, the younger protesters’ presence at such operations has frequently led to clashes with troops.Using the attached letter as proof, the petition itself calls on the High Court to accept the delay in light of the “agreement” with the residents that would allow for a “peaceful” evacuation.The letter was similar to an agreement that residents of the illegal Amona outpost signed over a year ago, also pledging not to employ violence against security forces during their evacuation in February 2017.While the residents themselves did not clash violently with soldiers during that evacuation, dozens of troops were injured by hundreds of youth who came to demonstrate against the demolition.The Peace Now settlement watchdog called the state petition a “brazen request,” arguing that the High Court had given the government a year and half to prepare for the evacuation.“Yet the government has done nothing to be prepared in time,” the NGO said in a statement.On Monday, coalition leaders voted to approve a package of NIS 20 million ($5.68 million) in compensation for the 15 Netiv Ha’avot families. However, the funds cannot be transferred until the cabinet approves the measure.On Sunday, the outpost residents met with Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked — both of the national religious Jewish Home party — who told the families that the cabinet was planning to advance a resolution to legalize the outpost.For their part, the residents praised the Jewish Home ministers for taking the lead in reaching a solution for the outpost, which lies in the Etzion bloc, south of Jerusalem. However, the families clarified in a Sunday statement, “we are no longer satisfied with promises, and will not rest until we see actions on the ground.”They have since announced the establishment of a protest tent outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Jerusalem office, in which they will demand an immediate solution to prevent the evacuation as well as the construction of 350 homes in the Etzion bloc. The residents referred to the latter demand as a “proper Zionist response to the extreme leftist elements bringing about the destruction of homes.”Last week, the Defense Ministry body responsible for authorizing West Bank construction granted final approval for 15 temporary homes for the families whose homes are currently set to be razed on March 6. The caravans will be placed adjacent to the nearby Alon Shvut settlement, and will be allowed to stand for three years until a more permanent solution is reached for the 15 families.If the High Court accepts the state’s Tuesday petition, the residents would ostensibly be able to move to the temporary homes immediately after the newly requested June 6 demolition date.In September 2016, the High Court of Justice ordered the Netiv Ha’avot homes — considered a neighborhood of the Elazar settlement — razed after accepting the petition of a group of Palestinians who argued the homes had been partially built illegally on their land.

Defense minister warns Gazans not to riot along security fence-Liberman says Hamas is exploiting desperate Palestinians for terrorist purposes; also calls for diplomatic solution to dispute with Lebanon-By Judah Ari Gross-TOI-21 February 2018

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Tuesday warned Gazans that their rulers, the Hamas terrorist group, were taking advantage of them and endangering their lives by sending them to take part in demonstrations near the border with Israel. His comments came days after one such riot was used as cover for an improvised explosive device attack.Echoing statements made by Israel’s military liaison the night before, Liberman said the army had “learned the lessons” from Saturday’s attack and would respond more aggressively in the future, though he declined to elaborate on what specific policies changes the military was adopting.Liberman made his comments after a press briefing from the Israel Defense Forces’ Southern Command and Gaza Division in a field full of blazing red anemones near Kibbutz Kissufim, a few kilometers from the Palestinian enclave.Turning his attention to the north, Liberman also spoke to the ongoing disagreement between Israel and Lebanon regarding the rights to potential natural gas reserves in an area of the Mediterranean Sea known as Block 9, which each country claims as its own.The negotiations between the two countries are ongoing, with the United States acting as a mediator, and Liberman encouraged a diplomatic resolution to the issue.“But if the Lebanese don’t want a solution, and they want to keep arguing, they will only lose from it,” he said.During the briefing, the defense minister heard from the IDF deputy chief of staff, Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi; the head of the Southern Command, Maj. Gen. Eyal Zamir; and the division commander, Brig. Gen. Yehuda Fox; as well as various senior officers from the Gaza Division, including its chief operations, intelligence and combat engineering officers.Though Liberman had previously said the direct perpetrators of the IED attack were from the Palestinian Resistance Committees terrorist group, he said on Tuesday that Hamas, which rules the Strip, was also liable as it allowed the attack to take place.“What’s clear is that Hamas is using the residents of the Gaza Strip as a cover for terrorist activities,” he said. “This is unacceptable. We won’t continue with this game.”The defense minister accused Hamas’s leaders of sending Gaza residents to take part in violent demonstrations while making sure their own family members never get close to the border. He also noted that the senior figures in the terrorist group enjoy a constant supply of electricity, while most Gaza residents get just a few hours a day.The defense minister repeated a message he has expressed multiple times, that Hamas was deliberately maintaining poor living conditions in the enclave as a matter of policy.“Hamas is the one preventing economic development in Gaza, preventing growth,” he said. “You have to understand: poverty and terrorism go hand in hand.”The defense minister didn’t explicitly blame Iran — which financially supports Hamas and the second-largest terror group in the Strip, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad — for recent unrest in Gaza, but implied that the Islamic Republic is playing a role in it.Liberman said senior Hamas officials “live in Beirut, with Hezbollah’s blessing, and travel from Beirut to Tehran almost every other week in order to coordinate their activities — and most of the money Hamas is receiving comes from Iran.”Four IDF soldiers were injured on Saturday when the IED, disguised as a flag, detonated as they were removing it from the Gaza security fence near the city of Khan Younis. It had apparently been placed there during a recent violent demonstration.In response to that attack, and to a rocket fired from Gaza that hit a home in southern Israel late Saturday night, the IDF conducted a large series of strikes against 18 targets in the Strip, including on an tunnel in Gaza City, Liberman said in the Knesset on Monday.In a separate incident on Saturday night, an IDF tank fired on a group of Palestinians who the army said approached the security fence “in a suspicious manner,” killing two of them and seriously injuring two others.

Funerals: Grieving teens, raw emotions after school shooting-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-February 21, 2018

PARKLAND, Fla. — Each funeral for the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High massacre is different, yet the same: the mourning relatives, teens walking in clutches wearing black, politicians paying their respects, media cameras pointing at the entrance from across the parking lot.And each service takes its toll on the young mourners, many of them attending more friends' funerals in a span of days than many middle-aged people have in their lifetimes. Services for 14 Stoneman Douglas students, the athletic director, a coach and a geography teacher began Friday, two days after the shooting, and will end in the next few days.Erica Sparrow, a 17-year-old senior, said Monday that she went to her first funeral a couple of weeks ago, "now I have one every day." She and her friend, Lauren Kuperman, also 17, began ticking off names — Meadow Pollack from Friday, Joaquin Oliver from Saturday and Alaina Petty's on Monday. Three more Tuesday, another Wednesday. It's both difficult and cathartic, the girls said."It kind of helps but at the same time it makes me sad," Sparrow said.Stoneman Douglas senior Lewis Mizen said Monday he had never attended a funeral for someone his own age before the weekend. He will attend another Tuesday. When an older family member dies, he said, it seems natural that their children and grandchildren speak about their loss, but seeing parents eulogize their child cuts deep emotionally."Seeing a father freak out, I hope I never have to see something like that again," Mizen said. "Right now, it all seems very surreal."The funerals have taken place in churches and synagogues, funeral homes and conference centres , all packed, sometimes with crowds topping 2,000. The last-arriving mourners have often been forced outside into the Florida heat, where they stand respectfully for an hour, straining to hear a snippet of the service.Monday's funeral for Petty, a 14-year-old freshman, was unique but also unfortunately too common in this grieving community. More than 1,500 mourners, most dressed in black, filed into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Coral Springs to remember the Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps member. Family members spoke about how she enthusiastically joined other Mormon youth to help with cleanup efforts in September after Hurricane Irma, and of her love of dogs and her confidence and wit.Her father Ryan Petty spoke about the support his family has received from their church, the community and from around the country and world."We could not get through this without the love, prayers and support offered," he said. "We may never know all of the acts of kindness that have been rendered on our behalf this past week. We have witnessed hundreds in just the past few days but we know that is a small fraction of the total."Other fathers and mothers have said similar words in recent days, begging mourners to never forget their child and to treat each other with kindness.The father of 18-year-old Meadow Pollack called out the 19-year-old gunman Nikolas Cruz, the former Stoneman Douglas student who has admitted Wednesday's killings, yelling, "You killed my daughter!" before calling him an obscenity. The mother of Alyssa Alhadeff, 14, called on politicians to enact laws that will prevent future school massacres.Siblings also have bared their loss. Petty's older sister, Meghan Petty, talked about how Alaina will now be her guardian angel and that the shooting should not detract from the goodness that lives within the community."What happened to her is that it was a very, very ugly act that was committed by one person but as you look around at how many people who are here ... there are thousands more who are doing something really beautiful for my sister," Meghan Petty said.Dr. Francisco Cruz, lead psychiatrist at Ketamine Health Centers, suggested some survivors may want to limit themselves to services for their close friends, but he said overexposure to news coverage and social media posts about the shooting may be more harmful than attending several funerals."Going through the funeral process and remembering your classmates and feeling support from friends and family and the community can be empowering," Cruz said. "It can help people to get through these tough times and help them be more resilient down the line."__Kay reported from Miami.__Follow the AP's complete coverage of the Florida school shooting here: https://apnews.com/tag/Floridaschoolshooting-Terry Spencer, Jennifer Kay And Kelli Kennedy, The Associated Press

School shooting suspect ‘sympathized with Syrian terrorists’-Classmate of Nikolas Cruz, accused of murdering 17 in Florida, says he would talk about killing parents, friends-By TOI staff and AP-FEB 21,18

A classmate of Nikolas Cruz, who is accused of murdering 17 people in a Florida school last week, said Tuesday that he spoke of his sympathy for Syrian terrorists.Ariana Lopez told ABC News that at first Cruz seemed normal. But very soon his behavior became “disturbing.”“He would tell me about his mom and his brother,” she said of Cruz when she first met him. However he moved on to acting abnormally. “He used to sell knives out of his lunchbox, which I thought was insane,” she said. “You can’t have knives, this is a school. He was like, ‘Hey guys, want some knives?'”She told the news network that Cruz spoke of murder, and also of his sympathy for terrorists.“He talked about killing our parents, our friends, boyfriends and girlfriends,” Lopez told the news network. “He would talk about how he sympathized with Syrian terrorists and that people who opposed them should be killed. He posted pictures of like 15 or more firearms just on his bed. Like this was normal. Like you could even see a hamper in the background. That’s how ordinary this was to him.”Lopez said she and others reported Cruz to school officials on several occasions.Footage has surfaced of a 2016 fight between Cruz and another boy. Lopez said that fight was over a girl, and his mistreatment of her.“He would hit her. He would threaten her. He would threaten her family and her friends for talking to other guys,” she said.Lopez said she knew Cruz was the shooter even before it was announced.“”I knew it. We all did. Everybody who knew him. We knew it.”Cruz, the 19-year-old charged with killing 17 people on Valentine’s Day at his former high school, has been described by students as a loner with troubling behavior who had been kicked out of school. His mother recently died and Cruz had been staying with family friends.Since the attack, students from the school have become increasingly vocal in their demands for gun-control measures. Many have pointed out politicians who take financial support from the National Rifle Association, and some have lashed out at US President Donald Trump, saying he was busy blaming Democrats for failing to pass gun restrictions while taking no action of his own.A hundred students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were busing hundreds of miles across Florida to its capital Tuesday to urge lawmakers to act to prevent a repeat of the massacre last week.After arriving late Tuesday, they plan to hold a rally Wednesday in hopes that it will put pressure on the state’s Republican-controlled Legislature to consider a sweeping package of gun-control laws. Shortly after the shooting, several legislative leaders were taken on a tour of the school to see the damage firsthand and appeared shaken afterward.Chris Grady is a 19-year-old senior on the trip. He said he hopes the trip will lead to some “commonsense laws like rigorous background checks.”

Cree leaders show public support for LGBTQ, 2-spirited community-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-February 21, 2018

Several key leaders of the Cree Nation, including Grand Chief Abel Bosum, came together Saturday to deliver a powerful public message of acceptance to two-spirited members of their communities."We all know that people of different sexual and gender identities have always been part of our story," Bosum told attendees at the Cree-organized conference."I believe our inclusiveness and our diversity … includes all our Eenouch/Eeyouch, whether they call themselves straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, questioning, or two-spirited."The Two-Spirited Community Support Conference was held in Montreal on February 16 and 17."Two-spirited" is used by some Indigenous people to describe someone who has both a masculine and a feminine spirit.Bosum's message had never before been uttered publicly by a James Bay Cree grand chief, according to conference organizer Mathias (Maloose) Jolly, adding it's a message young Cree who might be questioning their sexuality desperately need to hear."When I was a child I never heard any of my leaders say, 'It's OK you are two-spirited,'" said Jolly, 39, who now lives in Montreal."This is very important because hearing your own leader accept you is something we want to hear. Never in my life did I ever believe they would even acknowledge my invitation [to the conference]. It's a big deal for everybody in Eeyou Istchee."-High suicide rates-A 2012 report by the National Aboriginal Health Organization (NAHO) into suicide prevention said that suicide rates among Indigenous two-spirited people in Canada aren't known, but are higher than among heterosexual Indigenous people.Suicide rates for First Nations people are at least twice as high as the general Canadian population. The NAHO report also pointed out that two-spirited people were respected leaders in their communities prior to contact with Europeans and colonization.Bella M. Petawabano, chairperson of the Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James Bay (CBHSSJB), was another prominent Cree leader who spoke at the weekend convention."We all know that homophobia, biphobia and transphobia is still strong in most of our communities," Petawabano said. "This needs to change."Petawabano was recognized by conference organizers as an ally to LGBTQ and two-spirited people in Cree communities.Petawabano shared the story of how her household in Mistissini was a safe place for people to go, and how her daughters would bring home two-spirited friends who were struggling."There were a few times in the summer when someone [would bring] in a friend saying, 'We found him or her at the river, wanting to drown themselves.' That's how it was," said Petawabano.Petawabano hopes to create youth clinics across the Cree territory as safe spaces for the two-spirited community. She also pledged to create a discrimination and bullying-free work environment at the health board."[Cree communities] still have a long way to go, but I believe we are moving in the right direction," she said.Speak out and stand up-Kathleen Wootton, chairperson of the Cree School Board, attended all the weekend workshops, and said she'll take back what she learned to build better support systems for two-spirited people in Eeyou Istchee's schools."In our schools and in our education system I hope we can be more open-minded in terms of providing the emotional support our youth need," Wootton said.All three leaders expressed a desire for two-spirited people to feel accepted and needed by their nation, and to fully manifest their talents to help build the Cree Nation.Jolly, the conference organizer, said it's important for his people to publicly speak out and stand up."In the past we used to do [this conference] in a discreet fashion, to avoid bullying from the public," said Jolly. "For the first time we did it openly, we publicized it."Jolly would like to see the gathering grow into a regional meeting to include other First Nations.

What we need is a man who is great enough to be able to keep all the people in subjection to himself and to lift us out of the economic bog into which we threaten to sink. Send us such a man. Be he a god or a devil, we will accept him.And today, sadly, the world is indeed ready for such a man.

Spain's De Guindos to be ECB vice-president-By Eric Maurice-EUOBSERVER

BRUSSELS, 19. Feb, 17:58-Spanish finance minister Luis de Guindos will become vice president of the European Central Bank (ECB) later this year, after his sole rival stepped down on Monday (19 February).De Guindos' candidacy was secure even before a Eurogroup meeting of eurozone finance ministers in Brussels, after the group's president Mario Centeno announced that Philip Lane, the governor of the Central Bank of Ireland, had withdrawn."It's a personal challenge. I face it with humility, with enthusiasm to learn and defend the independence of the ECB," De Guindos said after the meeting.De Guindos added that he "will defend the independence of the ECB with all my effort".He said that he was neither a 'hawk' nor a 'dove' but "pragmatic" in monetary policies.He added that he will leave the Spanish government in the coming days.Lane was backed by the European Parliament's monetary and finance committee, but had little support among ministers.De Guindos, for his part, had the official support of influential countries, including France, while others, like Germany, were also pushing for his appointment."He has a good reputation, he has the recognition from his colleagues, so I think we have found a good candidate," German minister Peter Altmaier said before the meeting.The Spanish minister, who is now the longest-serving minister in the Eurogroup, had been slated for the ECB position for months, in replacement for Portugal's Vitor Constancio, who leaves in June.After he had failed to win the Eurogroup presidency in 2015, de Guindos was looking for another high profile position.As a member of the centre-right EPP party and a minister from the south, he also had a double political and geographical support, as southern Europe is catching up on its under-representation in the EU institutions.For Lane, who applied to the ECB position at the last minute, "it was difficult to stay in the race while he could feel he had almost no support among ministers," a diplomat told EUobserver.De Guindos "will do an excellent job," Irish minister Paschal Donohoe said, insisting that he wanted to maintain a consensus within the Eurogroup."No one wanted to have blood on the walls for the nomination," the diplomat said, adding that "the distribution of positions has been ready for some time," the official added.In December, Portugal's Centeno was elected Eurogroup's chair while the Netherlands' Hans Vijlbrief was appointed president of the Eurogroup working group (EWG), the body that prepares the Eurogroup meetings.Next year, the position of ECB president will also be open, when Mario Draghi ends his mandate in November 2019.With a Spanish vice president at the ECB, many now expect that the presidential seat will go to a northerner."Everybody knows that Germany is at the end of the corridor", a second official told EUobserver, referring to Bundesbank president Jens Weidmann being a strong favourite for the post.De Guindos insisted however that there were "no conditionalities" to his appointment at the ECB."It was a very transparent and open process," Centeno insisted at a press conference after the meeting.He said that De Guindos, who worked in the past for the Lehman Brothers bank and the PriceWaterhouseCoopers consultancy firm, has "a very rich CV, the profile of a decision-maker.""His recent experience shows a track record of good judgement," he added, referring to De Guindos steering of austerity policies to put Spain out of the crisis.The minister's political profile for a central banker job was however criticised."His appointment could create a conflict of interest and undermine the independence of the governance of the ECB," said the centre-left S&D group in the European Parliament."The Eurogroup is doing the ECB's credibility a disservice," Green MEP Sven Giegold also said, pointing at the same issues.The Spanish minister, who did not enter the Eurogroup room when his colleagues discussed his appointment, will have to be recommended by the 27 finance ministers on Tuesday. The final decision to appoint him to the Frankfurt-based role will be taken by EU leaders in March.

Opinion-A European budget: securing a prosperous future for Europe-By Joseph Daul-FEB 20,18-EUOBSERVER

BRUSSELS, Today, 15:44-How the European Union decides to spend its money in the coming years, will determine how prepared our continent will be to deal with future challenges.Defining a budget means setting out priorities, this is what the EU's Multi-annual Financial Framework (MFF) is about. Faced with new realities, the European Union must adapt and so must its budget.As the leading force in the European institutions and a party of responsibility, the European People's Party (EPP) will fight to ensure that each euro spent must improve the life of the European citizens.The MFF must reflect today's necessities and anticipate future challenges.New priorities require new funding.One of today's main concerns of Europeans is security. This means reinforcing our security and protecting our citizens from terrorist attacks.Rapid implementation of the Permanent Structured Cooperation (Pesco) and a solid MFF allocation shall further improve EU's defence capabilities.This goes hand in hand with the need to stabilise our immediate neighbourhood and invest in humanitarian aid and development policy, with a special focus on Africa.Helping people in their countries of origin is one way to tackle migration. It implies protecting the EU's external borders and having the means to reform the Common European Asylum System.We need to move from a crisis management mode to a permanent, future-proof European policy on asylum and migration. It cannot happen without an adequate level of funding and flexibility to be able to act swiftly.A new focus does not mean abandoning successful EU policies which enhance our citizens' quality of life.Cohesion policy is and should remain the main investment policy of the EU to reduce disparities between European regions, with special attention paid to smart specialisation, synergies and tackling low absorption rates.Simultaneously, a well-funded Common Agricultural Policy will support European farmers facing the challenges of climate change, globalisation and food security.Tomorrow's Europe is prepared today-There is no better investment than investing in our people and our knowledge. To make the EU a frontrunner in research and innovation, we need to keep boosting its funding, promoting Erasmus+, enhancing the EU's ageing infrastructure and advancing digitalisation via the Connecting Europe Facility.With changing societies due to digitalisation and globalisation, it is our duty to make sure that the most vulnerable are protected and to offer equal opportunities to all Europeans.We must implement the European Pillar of Social Rights, including specific measures for youth. We are also committed to the euro and support enhancing the instruments for stabilisation and structural reforms to protect the assets of the European citizens.Besides the scope, we need to look at the shape of the MFF.-Brexit-The next EU budget will depend on the contributions of 27 member states due to the departure of the United Kingdom from the EU.Brexit will impact the form of EU's budget, but it will neither change its course nor its priorities. This new format will require an increase in the EU budget's general ceiling as well as new sources for the EU's own resources.To provide clarity and predictability to the European citizens and businesses, the next MFF must be adopted before the 2019 European elections. The EU budget cannot get caught in an election cycle. We also defend a seven-year time span to ensure continuity.The European budget must address the concerns of Europeans while pursuing policies that have and will continue to bring benefits to the citizens.To do more, we need more. Deciding on a budget means planning for the expected and preparing for the unexpected. No money can be lost and each euro must be spent for the better.The EPP will make sure that the future EU budget works towards a prosperous and secure Europe.Joseph Daul is president of the European People's Party

Malaysian firm adds Islamic certification to cryptocurrency-[Reuters]-By Bernardo Vizcaino-YAHOONEWS-February 21, 2018

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Malaysia-based firm HelloGold has received a sharia-compliant certification for its gold-backed cryptocurrency and plans to launch its online gold platform in Thailand later this year, the company said.Its cryptocurrency product, dubbed GOLDX, was launched at the end of last year and has now received certification from Amanie Advisors, a Malaysia-based Islamic finance consultancy, said chief marketing officer Manuel Ho.Unlike other cryptocurrencies, GOLDX involves the issuance of a token backed by physical gold stored in a Singapore vault, and transactions must be completed within a defined time period, Ho said.This means the issuance process and audited assets can address transparency, certainty and immediacy of transactions - important principles in Islamic financial contracts.The move highlights how fintechs, companies that use new technology to revamp banking services, are extending their influence to Islamic finance markets spanning the Middle East and Southeast Asia.Over the past year, the firm has rolled out a mobile app in Malaysia that is based on blockchain, the system that first emerged to facilitate digital currencies such as bitcoin.That mobile app, which allows users to buy and sell physical investment grade gold, was also certified by Amanie Advisors.HelloGold plans to expand its gold platform into Thailand in coming months, while potentially adding a third market by the end of the year, said Ho.The firm is also exploring other unspecified assets for its blockchain technology, which involves a shared electronic ledger that allows parties to track transaction information through a secure network.(Reporting by Bernardo Vizcaino; Editing by Eric Meijer)

Trump urges ban on gun devices like bump stocks-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-February 21, 2018

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he has signed a memo directing the Justice Department to propose regulations to "ban all devices" like the rapid-fire bump stocks involved in last year's Las Vegas massacre.Seeking to show action days after a deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Trump spoke during a White House ceremony recognizing bravery by the nation's public safety officers."We must move past clichés and tired debates and focus on evidence based solutions and security measures that actually work," Trump said.The announcement came days after the shooting deaths of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The device Trump referred to was used in the October shooting deaths of 58 people in Las Vegas, and attached to a half-dozen of the long guns found in the shooter's hotel room. A legislative effort to ban the device fizzled out last year.White House officials say the president will be meeting with students, teachers and state and local officials to discuss ways of providing more school safety and address gun violence. Pressure has been mounting for action after the Parkland shooting.Trump has also indicated he is open to a limited strengthening of federal background checks on gun purchases.Over the weekend, the White House said he had spoken Friday to Sen. John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, about a bipartisan bill designed to strengthen the FBI database of prohibited gun buyers.Trump spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders qualified the support, stressing that talks continue and "revisions are being considered," but said "the president is supportive of efforts to improve the federal background check system."The main action Trump has taken on guns has been to sign a resolution blocking an Obama-era rule designed to keep guns out of the hands of certain mentally disabled people. The president has voiced strong support for gun rights and the National Rifle Association.The bipartisan background check legislation would be aimed at ensuring that federal agencies and states accurately report relevant criminal information to the FBI. It was introduced after the Air Force failed to report the criminal history of the gunman who slaughtered more than two dozen people at a Texas church.The White House statement comes as shooting survivors and other young people press for more gun control in a rising chorus of grief and activism. Their "March for Our Lives" is planned March 24 in Washington.Ella Fesler, 16-year-old high school student in Alexandria, Virginia, was among the students at the "lie-in" in front of the White House. She said it was time for change, adding: "Every day when I say 'bye' to my parents, I do acknowledge the fact that I could never see my parents again."But previous gun tragedies have not led Congress to act. After the Las Vegas massacre in the fall, Republicans and Democrats in Congress talked about taking a rare step to tighten the nation's gun laws. Four months later, the only gun legislation that has moved through Congress eases restrictions for gun owners.Kristin Brown, co-president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, said the measure Trump discussed with Cornyn would help to enforce existing rules but would not close loopholes permitting loose private sales on the internet and at gun shows. She's pressing for a ban on assault-type weapons and for laws enabling family members, guardians or police to ask judges to strip gun rights temporarily from people who show warning signs of violence."We need a comprehensive system," Brown said. "One of these isn't enough."Trump, who visited first responders and some victims Friday, had focused his comments on mental health, rather than guns. The White House says the president will host a "listening session" with students and teachers on Wednesday and will discuss school safety with state and local officials on Thursday. They have offered no further details on who will attend those sessions.Trump spent most of the weekend at his private Palm Beach estate, Mar-a-Lago. White House aides advised against golfing too soon after the shooting. But on Presidents Day, the avid golfer headed to his nearby golf club. The White House did not answer questions about whether he was playing golf.President Barack Obama took heavy criticism in 2014 when he went golfing during a vacation just minutes after denouncing the militants who had beheaded an American journalist. He later regretted playing golf so soon after the killing.Trump watched cable television news during the weekend and groused to club members and advisers about the investigation of Russian election meddling.In a marathon series of furious weekend tweets from Mar-a-Lago, Trump vented about Russia, raging at the FBI for what he perceived to be a fixation on the Russia investigation at the cost of failing to deter the Florida school attack.___Danilova reported from Washington.

300 arrested after Sufis clash with Iran police, killing 5-Tehran protesters fear detention of 90-year-old pro-liberal Sufi leader Nourali Tabandeh-By Nasser Karimi-TOI-21 February 2018

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Overnight clashes between followers of a Sufi Islam leader and Iranian police killed five members of the security forces and injured 30, Iranian media reported Tuesday, the latest tension between the mystical order and authorities. Over 300 were arrested.Supporters of Sufi leader Nourali Tabandeh have been holding sporadic sit-ins near his home in Tehran, worried that the 90-year-old former deputy justice minister after Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution could be detained by police. That fear stems from the recent January protests in Iran in which police detained Sufis.Tabandeh has had close relationships with liberal activists.Earlier on Monday, Sufis had rallied in front of a police station demanding the release of a detainee. They later rallied in front of Tabandeh’s home, where police started to try to disperse them. Previous rallies saw Sufi followers carrying clubs and knives, which they used to clash with police.The semi-official Fars news agency said a Sufi follower rammed a bus into a group of police officers, killing three of them before being arrested late Monday.The official IRNA news agency on Tuesday quoted police spokesman Gen. Saeed Montazeralmahdi as saying two members of the Basij forces also were killed in a stabbing and another car-ramming attack, which also injured 30. Police arrested over 300 Sufi followers, including the drivers of both vehicles, he said. Tabandeh himself remains free.Police have blocked off streets to the site of the clash and deployed a number of officers to the area.Standoff continues between the Gonabadi Dervish and security forces. pic.twitter.com/KuHTFumxHM— FDD's Iran Project (@FDD_Iran) February 19, 2018-Sufis are a branch of Islam that emphasizes direct mystical experience over mainstream religious practices. While they have been influential in many Muslim countries in history, they have been persecuted by both Sunni and Shiite religious establishments.In Iran, pressures increased on Sufis during former hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s government. During Iran’s 2009 disputed re-election of Ahmadinejad, Tabandeh supported one of Ahmadinejad’s main challengers, Mahdi Karroubi, who has been under house arrests since 2011.In 2007, Sufis clashed with Iranian security forces in the central Iranian town of Boroujerd after authorities decided to close a Sufi lodge. Authorities closed down a similar venue in the holy Shiite city of Qom in 2006.
