3 soldiers lightly injured in suspected West Bank car-ramming attack-Army says forces looking for driver in incident at the Al Khader Junction in the Etzion bloc, near Beitar Illit settlement-By Jacob Magid-TOI-JUN 25,18

Three IDF soldiers on foot patrol in the West Bank were lightly injured when a car with Palestinian license plates attempted to run them over in a suspected car-ramming attack on Saturday night, the Israeli military said in a statement.The incident occurred outside the Palestinian village of Husan, at the Al Khader Junction near the West Bank settlement of Beitar Illit in the Etzion bloc.The IDF said it had launched a search for the alleged perpetrator.The injured soldiers received initial medical attention at the scene and were being transferred to hospital for further treatment, the military said.Earlier this month, Israeli troops thwarted an attempted car-ramming attack in the southern West Bank city of Hebron.The driver of the vehicle tried to run over soldiers stationed on a road leading to the Tomb of the Patriarchs but was shot dead by troops, according to the IDF.The army said the Palestinian assailant first attempted to run over an officer and another soldier with a small tractor.

Pompeo: Iran will face ‘wrath of entire world’ if it pursues nuclear weapons-US secretary of state says no matter what becomes of 2015 deal, which the US quit last month, Tehran had better not ramp up nuke program-By TOI staff-JUN 25,18

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he hoped the US would never have to take military action against Iran, but warned that should Tehran pursue the acquisition of nuclear weapons, it would stand to face the “wrath of the entire world.”Speaking during an interview with MSNBC broadcast on Saturday, Pompeo said that no matter the fate of the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal — which the US pulled out of last month, angering Tehran and America’s European allies and signatories to the agreement — it would not be in Iran’s interest to develop nuclear arms.“I hope they understand that if they begin to ramp up their nuclear program, the wrath of the entire world will fall upon them,” he said, during the wide-ranging interview which focused heavily on Washington’s recent outreach to North Korea, and ongoing talks on Pyongyang’s denuclearization.“When I say wrath, don’t confuse that with military action. When I say wrath, I mean the moral opprobrium and economic power that fell upon them. That’s what I’m speaking to. I’m not talking to military action here. I truly hope that that’s never the case. It’s not in anyone’s best interests for that,” he added.Pompeo said that US President Donald Trump has been “very clear” on Iran. “Iran will not get a nuclear weapon nor start its weapons program on this President’s watch,” he said, according to a transcript of the interview made available by the US State Department.Trump’s announcement on May 8 that Washington was withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal was a fulfillment of a campaign promise made by the then-candidate to scrap the deal. The US president had often blasted the controversial agreement forged under his predecessor, President Barack Obama, casting it as “defective” and unable to rein in Iranian behavior or halt the Islamic Republic’s quest to develop nuclear weapons. Trump said the 2015 agreement, which included Germany, France, Russia, China, and Britain, was a “horrible one-sided deal that should never ever have been made.”European allies Germany, France, and Britain had urged Trump to remain part of the deal and said they would stick by the agreement regardless.In his Saturday interview, Pompeo rebuffed the suggestion that America had “separated from our allies on this issue of Iran,” and suggested that although allies may have disagreed with Washington’s move to withdraw from the accord, they understand the wider threat posed by Iran-“When I talk to my Arab friends, the Israelis, all of those in the region, they are right alongside us. And even when I speak to the Europeans, with whom we have a difference about the JCPOA [the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as the deal is formally called] they too understand the threat that Iran presents, whether it’s malign activity with [Lebanese terror group] Hezbollah or in Yemen or in Syria or in Iraq, or its missile program that is launching missiles into airports that Westerners travel through,” he said.“There is a unified understanding of Iran’s malevolent behavior, and it will be an incredibly united world should Iran choose to head down a nuclear weapons path,” he added.While the fate of the JCPOA is not yet clear as Iran has said it will remain in the deal but could resume nuclear activity if need be, Pompeo said that “if they began to move towards a weapons program, this would be something the entire world would find unacceptable, and we’d end up down a path that I don’t think this is the best interest of Iran, other actors in the Middle East, or indeed the world.”

Iraq says military air strike in Syria kills 45 Islamic State jihadists-Army targets a meeting of the terror group's leaders in the eastern Syrian province of Deir Ezzor-By Agencies and TOI staff-JUN 25,18

The Iraqi military said on Saturday that it had killed 45 jihadists from the Islamic State terror group, including some senior figures, in an air strike in eastern Syria.Iraqi F-16 fighter jets carried out a “successful strike targeting a meeting of Daesh [IS] leaders” on Friday in the Hajin region, in the eastern Syrian province of Deir Ezzor, a military statement said.The raid occurred on Friday and destroyed three homes in the area connected by an underground tunnel, the statement added.Among those killed included the group’s “deputy war minister,” one of its “media emirs,” the personal courier of IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and its chief of police, according to a Reuters report.

Top Palestinian negotiator accuses Kushner, Greenblatt of seeking to topple PA-As American peace team holds talks in Israel and is boycotted by Abbas, his aide Saeb Erekat claims US wants to separate West Bank from Gaza, 'terminate' UNRWA-By TOI staff-JUN 25,18

Top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat on Saturday accused the US peace team of working to topple the Palestinian Authority, as the American envoys wrapped up a visit to the region aimed to push the Trump administration’s peace plan and enlist humanitarian aid for the Gaza Strip.US President Donald Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, along with Jason Greenblatt, met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Friday following meetings earlier in the week with the leaders of Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Egypt. They are expected to meet again with Netanyahu Saturday evening before returning to the US.Mahmoud Abbas’s Palestinian Authority is refusing to meet with the team, having boycotted the Trump administration since December.Erekat claimed that, during the meeting with Kushner and Greenblatt, Netanyahu said he was prepared to help address the humanitarian situation in Gaza with the tax revenues Israel collects on behalf of the PA.“The goal behind this is to sustain the coup [by which Hamas seized Gaza from Abbas in 2007] and keep Gaza separated from the West Bank on the way to creating a mini-state in Gaza while bringing down the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank,” Erekat told Voice of Palestine radio, according to the PA’s official Wafa news agency.Erekat alleged the US is working to remove Abbas and overthrow the PA, pointing to an article by Greenblatt earlier this month calling for Erekat’s ouster. Greenblatt accused Erekat of exacerbating the conflict and impeding progress toward peace after the latter attacked Washington over its peacemaking role.“In order to target the leadership, the US administration starts by creating a state of destabilization and confusion in the West Bank and at the same time works on undercutting international consensus on rejecting the so-called deal of the century and American conspiracies and support for the Palestinian cause,” Erekat said.He also said Kushner and Greenblatt are seeking the “termination” of the UN’s Palestinian refugee agency, in the wake of their alleged belief Jerusalem is no longer an issue after Trump recognized the city as Israel’s capital.“They want to terminate the role of UNRWA by proposing direct aid to the countries hosting the Palestinian refugees and sideline the UN agency,” Erekat said. “On top of this, they are planning financial aid to the Gaza Strip worth one billion dollars for projects, also separate from UNRWA and under the title of solving a humanitarian crisis.”He added: “All this is actually aimed at liquidating the issue of the Palestinian refugees.”The US earlier this year cut some $250 billion to the budget of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, or UNRWA.Israel has often criticized UNRWA, accusing it of sheltering terrorists and allowing Palestinians to remain refugees even after settling in a new city or country for many generations, thus complicating a possible resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.It also accuses UNRWA of helping to perpetuate the Palestinian narrative of Israel’s illegitimacy by uniquely granting refugee status to the descendants of refugees, even when they are born in other countries and have citizenship there, conditions that do not apply to the refugees cared for by the UN’s main refugee agency, UNHCR, which cares for all other refugees worldwide. The population of Palestinian refugees thus grows each year, even as other refugee populations in the world shrink with each passing generation.Separately, Abbas’ spokesman said Saturday that the alleged efforts by the US to undercut the PA would not bear fruit.“The American delegation should abandon the illusion that creating false facts and falsifying history are going to help it sell those illusions,” Wafa quoted Nabil Abu Rudeineh as saying.“The right address for achieving a just and lasting peace that cannot be bypassed, neither regionally nor internationally, is the Palestinian decision-maker represented by President Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian leadership supported by the legitimate international community and the Arabs, who made this clear to the American delegation,” Abu Rudeineh added.He also said the US should “stop pursuing imaginary political alternatives and projects aimed at splitting the Palestinian homeland to prevent the establishment of our Palestinian state.”Kushner and Greenblatt did not meet with any Palestinian officials on their Middle East trip, with the PA boycotting the Trump administration since the Jerusalem recognition.The decision greatly angered Palestinians, who claim East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state, though Trump stressed he was not taking a stance on the city’s borders, which he said must be agreed upon by the sides.

Israeli aircraft said to fire near Gazans flying burning kites-No injuries reported as a result of warning shots, which come as incendiary devices launched from Strip spark three blazes in Israel-TOI-JUN 25,18

Israeli military aircraft fired warning shots Saturday near a group of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip launching incendiary devices toward Israel, Palestinian media reported.There were no reported injuries as a result of the warning shots east of Gaza City.The reports came as burning objects flown from Gaza sparked three fires in southern Israel.Firefighters were working to extinguish the blazes.On Friday, 10 fires broke out in the Gaza periphery during the day as a result of the flaming balloons and kites. All the blazes were extinguished.The fires came as Palestinians took part in clashes on the Gaza border for a thirteenth consecutive week, with the Hamas-run health ministry reporting 206 injured.The army said two grenades were thrown during the clashes toward Israeli troops at the border fence near Kibbutz Nahal Oz. No soldiers were injured.Reports put turnout at Friday’s violent protests in the low thousands, a steep drop from participation at the height of the rallies and riots, when tens of thousands took part.Since March 30, Palestinians in Gaza have launched hundreds of kites and helium balloons bearing flammable materials, and occasionally explosives, sparking near-daily fires that have burned thousands of acres of land in southern Israel.The Israeli military has carried out multiple warning strikes in recent weeks at groups of Gazans preparing to launch incendiary devices toward Israel. The army has said repeatedly that it will act to prevent the launch of the airborne incendiary devices and explosives.Israeli leaders on Wednesday evening warned the Hamas terrorist group, which rules Gaza, and other terror groups in the Strip, that the military was prepared to take more intense offensive action as well.“The intensity will increase as necessary,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at a graduation ceremony for new IDF officers. “We are prepared for every scenario, and it’s best that our enemies understand this right now.”“The steel fist of the IDF will strike hard at anyone who attempts to harm us,” he added.Israeli leaders were split on how to respond to those responsible for the airborne arson attacks, with some calling for the IDF to shoot the kite flyers and balloon launchers on sight, while others argued that this was a step too far.In recent days, the military has attempted to force Hamas to rein in the aerial arsonists by carrying out airstrikes on the organization’s positions in response to kite and balloon attacks.

UN chief appeals for end to fighting in southern Syria-Guterres calls for return to ceasefire agreement in area near Israeli border, says regime offensive poses 'significant risks' to regional security-By AFP-TOI-JUN 25,18

UNITED NATIONS — UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday called for an immediate end to a military escalation in southwest Syria and a return to ceasefire arrangements agreed by Russia, the United States and Jordan.US Ambassador Nikki Haley separately urged Russia to pressure its Syrian ally to uphold the truce.Guterres is scheduled to hold talks Saturday in Washington with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.President Bashar Assad has set his sights on retaking rebel-controlled parts of southern Syria.Over the past three days, areas in eastern Daraa have been bombarded, forcing thousands of civilians to flee, according to the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.Guterres said he was “gravely concerned” by the recent upsurge in fighting from the Syrian government offensive, saying it posed “significant risks” to regional security.He called for “an immediate end to the current military escalation” and urged all sides to uphold the ceasefire commitments “as a matter of priority.”Jordan, Russia and the United States agreed last year to set up a de-escalation zone for the region that includes Daraa, Quneitra and Sweida. The area borders Jordan and the Israeli Golan Heights.Haley said in a statement earlier: “The Syrian regime’s violations of the ceasefire in southwest Syria need to stop.”“We expect Russia to do its part to respect and enforce the ceasefire it helped establish, and to use the influence it has to stop the Syrian regime’s violations and any further destabilizing actions in the southwest and throughout Syria.”More than 11,000 people have been displaced in the upsurge of violence that has included air strikes, artillery, barrel bombs and rocket attacks, according to the US statement.Assad’s forces have retaken large parts of Syria from opposition fighters since Russia intervened militarily on its side in 2015.The UN Security Council is scheduled to discuss Syria on Wednesday.

Man charged in NY bike path killings speaks in court of ‘Allah’-Sayfullo Saipov, Uzbek immigrant on trial for killing 8 people in 2017 truck rampage, interrupts proceedings to defend Islamic State-By Larry Neumeister-TOI-JUN 25,18

NEW YORK (AP) — The man charged with murdering eight people on a New York City bike path and injuring many more spoke out in court Friday over a prosecutor’s objection, invoking “Allah” and defending the Islamic State.Sayfullo Saipov, 30, raised his hand to speak immediately after US District Judge Vernon S. Broderick set an October 7, 2019 date for the Uzbek immigrant’s trial.Earlier, he had pleaded not guilty through his lawyer to the latest indictment in the October 31 truck attack near the World Trade Center. A prosecutor said the Justice Department will decide by the end of the summer whether to seek the death penalty against Saipov, who lived in Paterson, New Jersey, before the attack.Speaking through an interpreter for about 10 minutes, Saipov said the decisions of a US court were unimportant to him. He said he cared about “Allah” and the holy war being waged by the Islamic State.At the prompting of Assistant US Attorney Amanda Houle, Broderick interrupted Saipov to read him his rights, including that anything he said in court could be used against him.“I understand you, but I’m not worried about that at all,” Saipov said.“So the Islamic State is not fighting for land, like some say, or like some say, for oil. They have one purpose, and they’re fighting to impose Sharia (Islamic law) on earth,” he said.After Saipov spoke more, Assistant US Attorney Andrew Beaty interrupted him to object that the judge was letting Saipov make the kind of statement publicly that special restrictions placed on him in prison would otherwise prevent, including discussing “terrorist propaganda.”The judge said he believed Saipov was nearing the end of his remarks and let him finish before warning him that he was unlikely to let him speak out in court again in a similar manner. Saipov, though, would be given a chance to testify if his case proceeds to trial and, if convicted, could speak at sentencing.Saipov thanked the judge for letting him speak but added at one point: “I don’t accept this as my judge.”Prosecutors had been seeking an April 2019 trial date. Houle said the families of the dead and the dozens who were injured deserve a “prompt and firm trial date.”“The victims here are anxious now when that trial is going to be,” she said. “The public deserves a speedy trial, and the surviving victims deserve to know when that trial is going to be.”Defense lawyers have said the government should accept a guilty plea and a sentence of life in prison without parole to provide victims’ families and the public with closure.David Patton, a lawyer for Saipov, said he would need extra time to make legal challenges to the charges if death is sought. He also cited the difficulty of gathering information for the defense case overseas and in the United States.A defense attorney said Saipov has had only telephone contact with his mother, father and sister since his arrest because they cannot get approval to travel to the United States. Prosecutors said those decisions were made by the State Department.

Israeli embassy in Spain brings up Inquisition to protest anti-Israel moves-Tweet links Pamplona's motion calling for 'military embargo' on Jewish state to 15th century anti-Semitic tribunals-By JTA-TOI-JUN 25,18    40 shares

Referencing the Inquisition, Israel implied that a Spanish city’s anti-Israel resolution was rooted in the country’s history of anti-Semitism from the 15th century.A spokesman for the Israeli Embassy in Madrid suggested this on the embassy’s official Twitter account this week.“Navarre 1498: Jews out. Pamplona 2018: They’re forbidden to enter,” the spokesman wrote. On Tuesday, the municipality of Pamplona passed a motion calling for a “military embargo” on Israel.Jews were expelled from what is today the Spanish state of Navarre as part of the Spanish Inquisition, a campaign of persecution against Jews and other non-Christians that the Catholic Church and the Spanish royal house initiated in 1492. It wiped out one of the world’s most illustrious and successful Jewish communities at the time.References to the Inquisition in statements about present-day political issues are rare among Israeli diplomats working on relations with Spain.Last month, the parliament of the state of Navarre adopted a resolution calling on Spain to suspend its ties with Israel “until that country ceases its policy of criminal repression of the Palestinian population.” The final version stopped short of calling for a boycott of Israel or support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement targeting the Jewish state.The official website of Pamplona said it backs the regional parliament’s resolution from last month and “the right of the citizenry in Pamplona to use boycott as a civil and nonviolent tool for solidarity with Palestine.”In a separate Twitter message, the embassy wrote that “Navarre was the last in the [Iberian] Peninsula to expel its Jews and the municipality of Pamplona the first to declare them unwanted.”Emmanuel Nahshon, the Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman, added on Twitter: “Expelling Israelis and promoting in Pamplona BDS racism. 1492 in its 2018 version.” Quoting the slogan of the Podemos far-left party that supports boycotts of Israel and whose name means “we can,” he ended his tweet with the words “Now we can.”ACOM, a pro-Israel group based in Madrid, condemned the Pamplona municipality vote as “encouraging anti-Semitism.” But it nonetheless represents a “failure” for the campaign to boycott Israel because a direct call to do so was ultimately left out of the motion for fear of legal issues.Tribunals in Spain, including the nation’s Supreme Court in two of its rulings, have voided a total of 16 boycott motions passed by municipalities. Another seven municipalities voluntarily scrapped their boycott motions under threat of legal action by ACOM. One municipality’s boycott motion was suspended by a court injunction.

Showers soak much of U.S. Corn Belt; more storms next week-[Reuters]-By Julie Ingwersen-YAHOONEWS-June 24, 2018

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Rains soaked portions of the U.S. Corn Belt this week, swamping fields in South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa, and more storms are expected early next week ahead of a warm-up, meteorologists said Friday.The wet and warm outlook is generally favorable for U.S. corn and soybean crops overall, forecasters said, despite areas of flooding.The National Weather Service posted flood warnings Friday in northern Illinois, northwest Iowa and neighboring southeast South Dakota, where some areas received 5 to 6 inches (12 to 15 cm) of rain over the last seven days."There has been some heavy stuff, but it's pretty localized," said Joel Widenor, a meteorologist with the Commodity Weather Group.Temperatures should warm next week, with highs reaching the low 90s Fahrenheit (32-34 degrees Celsius) by the end of the week in Chicago and 98 F (37 C) in St. Louis. The heat is not expected to threaten crops, in part because of ample soil moisture across so many key growing areas, meteorologists said.Before this week's showers, the U.S. Department of Agriculture had rated 78 percent of the U.S. corn crop and 73 percent of the soybean crop in good to excellent condition as of June 17, among the strongest ratings in recent decades.The strong start favored crop prospects and pressured corn and soybean futures on the Chicago Board of Trade. Nearby CBOT soybean futures fell to a 9-1/2-year low this week, hit by favorable weather along with trade war fears.But now, some analysts are considering whether soil moisture is excessive in some areas."The market right now is trying to figure out if too much water is a good thing, or not a good thing," said Ted Seifried, analyst with the Zaner Group. "Beans don't really like having wet feet, and that's exactly what they've got now with all this rain."Other weather worries are beginning to crop up. Forecasts called for rains in Kansas on Sunday, stalling the harvest of winter wheat. The storms should move into the Midwest early next week, bringing 1 to 2 inches of rain to already-wet Iowa and northern Illinois.Yet the incoming storms may miss some southern areas that remain dry, including northern Missouri and southwest Illinois."Some areas that have already seen a little too much rainfall are going to get some more," said Kyle Tapley, meteorologist with Radiant Solutions.(Additional reporting by P.J.

Saudi women gear up for new freedom as driving ban ends-[Reuters]-By Stephen Kalin-YAHOONEWS-June 25, 2018

RIYADH (Reuters) - Women will hit the roads in Saudi Arabia on Sunday with the lifting of the world's last ban on female drivers, long seen as an emblem of women's repression in the conservative kingdom.The move, ordered last September by King Salman, is part of sweeping reforms pushed by his powerful young son Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who aims to transform the economy of the world's top oil exporter and open up its cloistered society."We are ready, and it will totally change our life," said Samira al-Ghamdi, a 47-year-old psychologist from Jeddah, one of the first Saudi women to be issued with a driving license.The lifting of the ban, which for years drew international condemnation and comparisons to the Taliban's rule in Afghanistan, has been welcomed by Western allies as proof of a new progressive trend in Saudi Arabia.But it has been accompanied by a harsh crackdown on dissent, including against some of the very activists who previously campaigned against the ban. They will sit in jail as their peers take to the road legally for the first time.Saudi women with foreign licenses only began converting them earlier this month, so the number of new drivers is expected to remain low at first. It will be some time before others learning to drive at new state-run schools are road ready.And some women still face resistance from conservative relatives. Many accustomed to using a private driver say they are reluctant to take on the Muslim kingdom's busy highways."I definitely won't like to drive," said Fayza al-Shammary, a 22-year-old saleswoman. "I like to be a princess with someone opening the car door for me and driving me anywhere."Concerns that women drivers will face abuse in a country where strict segregation rules usually prevent women from interacting with unrelated men prompted a new law last month with jail and hefty fines for sexual harassment.The Interior Ministry plans to hire women traffic police for the first time, but it is unclear when they will be deployed.-ECONOMIC BOON-The decision to lift the ban in the tightly-controlled Muslim kingdom - where once-forbidden cinemas and concerts have also returned - is expected to boost the economy, with industries from car sales to insurance to reap returns.It should also encourage more women into the workforce and raise productivity, if only modestly at first.Auto companies have seized the moment with theatrical ads marking the end of the ban, and private parking garages designated "ladies" areas with pink signage.Social media is also celebrating with tweets like #You_Will_Drive_and_the_People_Are_With_You. Some reactions have been more derisive or expressed concern about social impacts.Much of the kingdom's overwhelmingly young population supports Prince Mohammed's reforms, but many Saudis fear their speed could provoke a backlash from religious conservatives once seen as dominant.Activists and diplomats have speculated that the arrests of more than a dozen women's rights advocates over the past month were aimed at appeasing conservative elements or at sending a message to activists not to push demands too far.The crown prince's modernization efforts have won praise at home and abroad, but he has also provoked unease with an anti-corruption purge last year, when scores of royals and top businessmen were detained at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Riyadh. Most were freed after reaching settlements with the government.Even with the end of the driving ban, Saudi Arabia remains one of the most restrictive countries for women, who need permission from legally mandated male guardians for important decisions such as foreign travel and marriage.Activists have already begun campaigning to end the guardianship system, which has been chipped away at slowly over the years. Prince Mohammed declared in an interview earlier this year that he believes men and women are equal.But veteran Saudi activist Hala Aldosari says women remain second-class citizens and criticized the crown prince's "piecemeal approach" as serving the interests of the elite at the expense of women from more restrictive families."Worst of all will be if these small-scale reforms, and the silencing of feminists, slow the momentum for pushing the Saudi regime into making more meaningful change," she wrote in a U.S. newspaper this week.(Additional reporting by Marwa Rashad, Sarah Dadouch and Reuters TV; Editing by Ros Russell)

Xi says China must lead way in reform of global governance-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-June 24, 2018

BEIJING (Reuters) - China must lead the way in reforming global governance, the foreign ministry on Saturday cited President Xi Jinping as saying, as Beijing looks to increase its world influence.China has sought a greater say in global organizations such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and United Nations, in line with its growing economic and diplomatic clout.Since taking office in late 2012, Xi has taken a more muscular approach, setting up China's own global bodies like the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and launching his landmark Belt and Road project to build a new Silk Road.Beijing has cast itself a responsible member of the international community, especially as President Donald Trump withdraws the United States from agreements on climate change and Iran, and as Europe wrestles with Brexit and other issues.China must "uphold the protection of the country's sovereignty, security and development interests, proactively participate in and show the way in reform of the global governance system, creating an even better web of global partnership relationships", Xi said in comments reported at the end of a two-day high-level Communist Party meeting.This would help create conditions for building a modern, strong socialist country, the ministry cited him as saying at the meeting attended by officials from the foreign and commerce ministries, the military, the propaganda department and the Chinese embassy in the United States.While Xi did not provide details, the statement cited him as mentioning the importance of the Belt and Road, and other key diplomatic platforms like his "community of common destiny", a lofty concept meant to guide China's relations with the world.This proposes a "new style" of international relations is proposed that is "win-win" and of "mutual benefit" for all, but many Western nations remain critical of China's behavior over issues such as the contested waters of the South China Sea.Xi added that China must strengthen its relations with developing nations, who he described as natural allies, but also learn from all other nations.He made no direct mention of issues like the trade dispute between China and the United States, North Korea, or self-ruled Taiwan, claimed by Beijing as its own and considered China's most sensitive territorial and diplomatic issue.(Reporting by Ben Blanchard; Editing by Alexander Smith)

Faith-based camps feel sting of Trudeau government's summer jobs abortion clause-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-June 24, 2018

Daniel Peacock says this year is tougher for Camp Jordan.The small Baptist summer camp in Jordan Falls, N.S., has relied on $4,000 in federal grant money to hire a student camp counsellor for the last four years — a job that is invaluable, according to Peacock, a member of the board that oversees the camp.But this year Camp Jordan, along with at least five other faith-based camps in Nova Scotia, didn't even bother to apply for the Canada Summer Jobs program. The decision follows the federal government's controversial move to require all applicants to express support for "individual human rights in Canada" — including reproductive rights and equality of LGBTQ Canadians."The government is saying, 'We're right and you're wrong and that's it. Believe what we believe or don't bother to apply for money,'" Peacock said. "Our Baptist foundation told us that unless we check the box off, we would be ignored."CBC News also spoke with five other faith-based camps that applied but were rejected because they refused to check the required box in the application. In all, 50 applicants from various organizations in Nova Scotia were turned down, according to figures from the federal government.Federal Employment Minister Patty Hajdu has argued the attestation is simply intended to make sure organizations that receive money to hire students have core mandates that align with the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. More than 2,100 applications from Nova Scotia were approved.But the new rules, announced last December, have drawn concern from faith-based groups nationwide who say their views on abortion and marriage equality do not align with the government's, and feel the changes limit their freedom of belief. Across the country, more than 1,500 organizations have been refused grants after not checking the box."This year, most of our churches and camps were unable or unwilling to sign the attestation due to matters of conscience," said Renée Embree of the Canadian Baptists of Atlantic Canada, a ministry association of hundreds of faith-based groups in the region, including six camps in Nova Scotia."Many have simply been unable to hire students this summer," she said in an email.Apart from allowing students opportunities to build their own professional skills, Peacock said a camp counsellor plays a crucial role in helping up to 35 kids who attend Camp Jordan each week to learn team-building through fun games and campfire activities.Peacock said the camp now shares its counsellors and its cook with Long Lake summer camp, in nearby Lunenburg County, to make up for the lost funding.The new rules are "extremely disappointing" for Steve Williams, the director of Camp Evangeline, which unsuccessfully applied to the Canada Summer Jobs program. Students hired at his Pentecostal camp in Debert, N.S., help run activities for at-risk youth, single mothers and Indigenous people."It's just put us out of the ability to have a positive influence in these peoples' lives," he said.Véronique Simard, a spokesperson for Hajdu, the federal minister, said in an email that "hundreds of faith-based organizations are participating in the Canada Summer Jobs program, including many in Nova Scotia." Such groups have "always been welcome, and encouraged, to apply." She also said the "government will always stand up for the rights of women and LGBTQ Canadians," and that "federal funding should never fund work that seeks to undermine those rights."'What the government did is unconstitutional'-Rev. Jim Rhyno said he feels the government has "overstepped its bounds" by creating "parameters for Canada Summer Jobs to exclude certain faith groups," such as Baptist communities.He chairs the board of directors at Camp Peniel, a Baptist camp near Yarmouth, N.S., that's hired a summer student with federal grant money every year for the past decade."The board was unanimous that we would not be able to check the box," he said. "That would be counter to our value system in being truthful."Along with submitting a printed form with the attestation box untouched, he said the board included a letter explaining why checking the box was "inconsistent with our fundamental constitutionally protected personal beliefs."The application was turned down without any acknowledgment of the letter."What the government did is unconstitutional," said Barry Bussey, a lawyer and director of legal affairs with the Canadian Council of Christian Charities in Elmira, Ont.He said the new rules violate Section 2a of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which covers freedom of conscience and religion; Section 2b, which covers freedom of belief and expression; and Section 15, the equality right.Bussey said the council exists to promote and assist the best practices, including potential legal actions, of evangelical Christian charities in Canada. Many of the camps in Nova Scotia are members."We have received literally hundreds of messages from our membership who are very upset about the treatment they've received from the government with respect to this," he said. "Many of them want to pursue a court action."-Possible legal challenge-Bussey said the possibility that the council will file a lawsuit against the federal government directly is "very very conceivable," and said an official statement on the matter will be made in the coming week.Bussey said he's been rallying financial support for litigation on the council's website. Embree said the Canadian Baptists of Atlantic Canada is also "considering being a part of their response," but has not yet consulted a lawyer.Wayne MacKay, a professor emeritus of law at Dalhousie University, said that while many faith-based groups may be able to argue their charter rights are being violated, any court action against the government "will still be an uphill battle.""There's been a lot of new interpretations [the Supreme Court of Canada] has made to the charter, especially regarding the recent Trinity Western University case," he said, referring to the ruling in favour of Canadian law societies that refused to accredit the Christian university over its community covenant.He said the court has sent a "very strong message" that the government's view of human rights is a major factor, even in cases of religious freedom.In the meantime, the Canadian Baptists of Atlantic Canada's website encourages faith-based groups to voice their concerns to their local MP, and to start forming a long-term financial plan for the coming years without funding.

Doug Ford wants consultations on cannabis sales in Ontario-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-June 24, 2018

PICKERING, Ont. — With the legalization of recreational cannabis now months away, Ontario's incoming premier said he wants to consult further with municipalities, stakeholders and his caucus before deciding whether to change the plan laid out by his predecessors for the sale of marijuana.The outgoing Liberals had planned to roll out 150 standalone pot stores run by the Liquor Control Board of Ontario by the end of 2020, with the first 40 scheduled to open this year.Doug Ford, who was elected this month, had previously suggested he would be open to greater privatization of marijuana sales.But when asked about his plan for pot sales on Thursday, Ford said he's focusing on the Liquor Control Board of Ontario, which he said already has infrastructure in place that would allow it to sell marijuana once it becomes legal this fall."What I said is I'd be focusing on the LCBO. I'm private sector, I don't believe government should stick their nose into everything, but again, this is a path we have never went down," he said. "We're going to tread carefully on this and we're going to consult with the local municipalities and we're going to make a decision after we talk to caucus."The Progressive Conservatives say when the premier-designate talks about focusing on the LCBO, he's referring to Ontario Cannabis Stores run by the LCBO, as the outgoing Liberal government planned.Ford also suggested Thursday that Ottawa had left the provinces with little support to prepare for legalization."This is a path that the federal government has dumped on all the provinces," he said.The federal government announced this week that Canadians will be able to legally purchase recreational marijuana starting Oct. 17. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said legalization was pushed back at the request of several provinces who sought more time to make the transition.Preparing for legalization is a complex undertaking and it's the prerogative of a new government to reconsider how to do so, said Ivan Ross Vrana, a consultant on the cannabis industry with Hill+Knowlton Strategies.Ford will have to get up to speed with the work that's already been done by Ontario bureaucrats and what's planned in other provinces, he said."With this file I don't think anything is simple, it's really complex, but having said that I think people do know that this has been coming, I think there's public officials, civil servants, people at the (Ontario Cannabis Store) that have been working on this for a while," Vrana said.While it's not necessary to work out every detail by October, Ontario must have some sort of retail system in place by then to meet consumer demand, he said."The stated goal for everybody — whether it's federal, provincial or municipal — is to ensure that we can tackle the illegal market and the best way to do that is to ensure that there's access for consumers," he said.The New Democrats, who had criticized the Liberal plan for what they deemed to be an insufficient number of stores, said the premier-designate "needs to show Ontario a plan that fixes the one (former Liberal leader) Kathleen Wynne messed up.""As Ontario's official Opposition, we will work closely with municipalities, stakeholders, and community members to push the Ford Conservatives to roll out legal cannabis sales in Ontario in a way that promotes social responsibility and community safety, while effectively ending demand for illegal sales," New Democrat Gilles Bisson said in a statement. The Green Party, meanwhile, said the province should adopt a model similar to the craft brewery industry, in which small businesses and dispensaries would be regulated to sell cannabis.Paola Loriggio, The Canadian Press.
