CAR War Crimes Suspect 'Rambo' Protests Rough Treatment
[All Africa] A lawyer for former militia leader Alfred Yekatom, who appeared before judges at the International Criminal Court on Friday for the first time, claimed his client had been beaten after his arrest.

Prosecutors at the court claim that 43-year-old Yekatom, also known by the nickname Rambo or Colonel Rambo, is responsible for crimes that include murder, torture, mutilation and the use of child soldiers. Yekatom was extradited to The Hague last Saturday after his initial detention by local forces in the CAR.

The crimes he is charged with took place between December 2013 and August 2014, as a civil war raged in the Central African Republic (CAR). The country is still wracked by conflict between the militias and army.

At the opening, defense lawyer Xavier-Jean Keita told presiding Judge Antoine Mindua that Yekatom had been beaten with a Kalashnikov rifle butt. He also said Yekatom had been held illegally by local forces, before being transferred to The Hague.

"His fundamental rights were violated," Keita said.

Bahrain Holds Vote amid Boycott Calls
[An Nahar] Bahrain holds a parliamentary election Saturday amid boycott calls from dissolved opposition groups which have been banned from taking part.

The country's two main opposition groups, the Shiite al-Wefaq and secular Waad, were barred from fielding candidates.

The polls opened at 8am local time (0500 GMT) and are set to close at 8pm.

King Hamad
...King of Bahrain (since 14 February 2002), having previously been its emir (from 6 March 1999). He is a Sunni, while the rest of Bahrain is predominantly Shiite...
in September urged voters to take part in the vote, in which officials say 293 people -- including 41 women -- are running for parliament.

A municipal poll coincides with the parliamentary vote.

The tiny Gulf kingdom has been hit by ongoing unrest since 2011, when security forces crushed Shiite-led protests demanding a constitutional monarchy and an elected prime minister.

Opposition parties shunned the last elections in 2014, the first since the 2011 crackdown, denouncing the vote as a "farce".

More than 350,000 Bahrainis are eligible to vote in Saturday's poll, according to justice minister Sheikh Khalid bin Ali al-Khalifa, adding that there were 54 polling stations across the country.

Lahore court reserves verdict on petition seeking sedition charges against Khadim Rizvi
[DAWN] A Lahore sessions court on Saturday reserved its verdict on a petition seeking sedition charges against Tehrik-e-Labbaik Pakistain (TLP) chief Khadim Hussain Rizvi and others for their diatribe against the judiciary, armed forces and other state institutions.

Filed by advocate Abdullah Malik, the petition states that the station house officer (SHO) of Civil Lines cop shoppe in Lahore had failed to file a first information report (FIR) against Rizvi and company after they had incited the masses to violence and stage mutiny against the state, in the aftermath of the apex court's acquittal of Aasia Bibi from blasphemy charges.

The Civil Lines police, in today's hearing, submitted its report and told the court that an FIR had already been lodged against Rizvi under Sections 291, 290, 186, 353, 427 and 188 of the Pakistain Penal Code as well as Section 16 of the Maintenance of Public Order.

At this, the petitioner's counsel insisted that sedition charges against the TLP leader should also be added to the FIR.

Additional Sessions Judge Rai Mohammad Kharal, following the conclusion of the arguments, reserved the verdict on the petition.

Rizvi is currently in the "protective custody" of Punjab
1.) Little Orphan Annie's bodyguard
2.) A province of Pakistain ruled by one of the Sharif brothers
3.) A province of India. It is majority (60 percent) Sikh and Hindoo (37 percent), which means it has relatively few Moslem riots....

[DAWN] Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Governor Shah Farman said on Saturday that the terror attacks in Bloody Karachi

Maj Gen Rahat Naseem Ahmed visited the site of the blast in lower Orakzai district which claimed 34 lives.

The kaboom, which according to officials was a suicide kaboom, took place near an imambargah on Friday morning.

While talking to news hounds, Governor Farman said stern action would be taken against the culprits behind the attack.

Lt Gen Mazhar confirmed that the blast was a suicide kaboom and that 12 kilogrammes of explosives had been used.

The lower Orakzai area, formerly an agency, is situated near the Hangu district
... Hangu is famous for its greenery, hills, beauty and water. Most of the people of this area are Bangash & Orakzai Pashtuns. Part of the Bangash are Shia. The Orakzai and the Sunni Bangash are determined to kill them...
, and the kaboom took place in main Kalaya bazaar of the district.

Prime Minister Imran Khan
... aka Taliban Khan, who ain't the sharpest bulb on the national tree...
had "strongly condemned" the terrorist attack in Orakzai as well as the one foiled on the Chinese Consulate in Karachi.

He labelled the twin attacks "a planned campaign to create unrest in the country by those who do not want Pakistain to prosper".

"Let there be no doubt in anyone's mind that we will crush the terrorists, whatever it takes," he had affirmed on Twitter soon after the attacks.

Baloch separatist leader Harbiyar Marri among 13 booked for Chinese consulate attack
[DAWN] As the investigation into Friday’s attack on the Chinese consulate in Bloody Karachi

Liberation (BLA), of being the criminal mastermind of the deadly assault that left two coppers and as many civilians dead.

Police officials say the attack, carried out with the assistance of Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW

), was an attempt to strike against the growing diplomatic and economic relations between China and Pakistain.

In a case registered by the Sindh police’s Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) against Marri and 12 of his aides, including BLA commander Aslam 'Acchu' alias Miraq Baloch, Sherlocks said their initial findings had shown that the attack was "a failed and shameful attempt to harm the Pakistain-China relationship".

"The BLA is supported by Indian agency RAW," reads the application written by SHO Boat Basin with the FIR.

The 13 criminal masterminds and controllers of the attack as listed in the FIR include Harbiyar Marri, Aslam alias 'Acchu', Bashir Zeb, Noor Bux Mengal, Karim Marri, Capt Rehman Gul, Nisar, Gaindi, Sheikhu, Sharif, Hamal, Munshi and Agha Sherdil.

UN ‘prepared to help’ Iraqi government after floods hit northern cities
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Heavy rains and floods have swept many Iraqi provinces since early on Friday, causing normal traffic to come to a standstill and prompting local governments in some areas to stop official work.

At least seven people died and thousands fled their homes in flash floodsaround the northern Iraqi town of Shirqat on Friday, its mayor said.

The United Nations
...an idea whose time has gone...
has announced its readiness to participate in international and local humanitarian assistance by supporting the specialized agencies of the Iraqi government in providing assistance to tens of thousands of victims of the severe floods that have swept many areas of Salahuddin and Nineveh governorates.

"The United Nations, as always, is there to provide support to the government and the authorities of the country to provide assistance to its citizens," the statement said.

The statement also stressed the continued support of the UN during this emergency, noting: "We assess the situation to see where we can help the government of Iraq in responding to these severe floods".

Footage from the state-run Iraqi News Agency showed people in Salahuddin province, where Shirqat is located, escaping their half-submerged homes in small boats.

Hamas on hunt for ‘collaborators’ after Israeli special forces operation in Gaza
[IsraelTimes] Official says the Paleostinian terror group possesses parts of alleged spying gear the Israeli forces were trying to install

Paleostinian terror group Hamas, the braying voice of Islamic Resistance®,, which rules the Gazoo Strip, is reportedly on the hunt for suspects it believes may have aided the Israeli special forces in a raid nearly two weeks ago, and is specifically looking for a small van spotted in surveillance footage, according to a Saturday report in the Lebanese newspaper al-Akhbar.

The van is alleged to have been used by the Israeli forces or those who are suspected of helping them, dubbed "collaborators," according to the report.

On November 11, a group of Israeli soldiers was discovered deep in southern Gazoo during an operation that went awry, resulting in a shootout
that left one senior IDF officer and seven Paleostinian fighters dead. The incident touched off a day of fierce rocket fire from the Strip and retaliatory Israeli Arclight airstrikes.

A Hamas official said earlier this week that the forces appeared to have been attempting to install equipment that would make it easier for Israel to eavesdrop on Paleostinians in the coastal enclave.

"The Zionist enemy tried to achieve a major security breakthrough. It apparently tried to install equipment and build something that would make it easy for it to kill, hack and abduct," deputy Hamas chief in Gazoo Khalil al-Hayya told the Hamas-affiliated al-Aqsa TV last week.

The Saturday al-Akhbar report cited a Hamas official saying the group seized some parts of the Israeli spying equipment the forces had been trying to install, which he said was similar to equipment previously seized from a "spying cell" in May.

Iran's great nuclear deception
Long, with much detail, including photos, providing the background to this story from a few days ago.
[Ynet] New details are revealed about the Mossad's special operation to seize Iran's nuclear archive, including a rare glimpse into Tehran's classified documents: secret tests, a plan to manufacture the first 5 nuclear bombs, and even a photo of proud Iranian scientists outside a nuclear facility. This is the story of how Iran tried to deceive the world... and almost got away with it.

U.S. Envoy Warns ‘No More Political Concessions for Hizbullah’
[An Nahar] U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Levant Joel Rayburn has voiced warnings against giving Hizbullah
...Party of God, a Leb militia inspired, founded, funded and directed by Iran. Hizbullah refers to itself as The Resistance and purports to defend Leb against Israel, with whom it has started and lost one disastrous war to date, though it did claim victory...
party "any additional political gains" seeing its effect on the U.S. aid for Leb’s military, al-joumhouria daily reported on Saturday.

Senior political sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: "The U.S. envoy, who visited Leb for 19 hours, and met with Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri
Second son of Rafik Hariri, the Leb PM who was assassinated in 2005. He has was prime minister in his own right from 2009 through early 2011. He was born in Riyadh to an Iraqi mother and graduated from Georgetown University. He managed his father's business interests in Riyadh until his father's assassination. When his father died he inherited a fortune of some $4.1 billion, which won't do him much good if Hizbullah has him bumped off, too.
and Central Bank Governor Riad Salameh, has voiced warnings against giving additional political gains for Hizbullah," suggesting "significant U.S. influence on the CEDRE Support conference for Leb," in response.

They said the envoy’s mission was to deliver a direct message in that regard, discouraging Leb from taking political decisions in Hizbullah’s favor. He warned it could affect the U.S. grants provided for Leb at the CEDRE conference and the U.S. aid for the Lebanese Armed Forces.

Iran Urges Muslims to Unite against US, Including Saudi 'Brothers'
[An Nahar] Iranian President Hassan Rouhani urged Moslems worldwide on Saturday to unite against the United States and assured Saudis they were "brothers" who had nothing to fear from Tehran.

US President Donald Trump
...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States...
abandoned a landmark 2015 nuclear deal between major powers and Tehran in May and has since reimposed crippling unilateral sanction.

"What the United States wants of (the Middle East) today is enslavement," Rouhani told an Islamic unity conference in Tehran.

Instead of "rolling out the red carpet for criminals," Moslem governments should unite against the United States and "the region's cancerous tumour", Israel, he said.

Rouhani urged Shiite Iran's Sunni rival Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
to end its dependence on "insulting" US military aid.

"We are ready to defend the Saudi people's interests against terrorism and superpowers with all our might," he said.

"We do not ask $450 billion for it and will not insult you."

Riyadh cut diplomatic ties with Tehran in January 2016 after protesters stormed its diplomatic missions in Iran following its execution of a prominent Shiite holy man.

It accuses Tehran of fomenting unrest among Shiites in the Gulf Arab states and the two governments have supported opposing sides in devastating civil wars in Syria and Yemen.

Iran's Rouhani calls Israel a 'cancerous tumor'
[DAWN] Iran's President Hassan Rouhani on Saturday called Israel a "cancerous tumor" established by Western countries to advance their interests in the Middle East.
"Relative Moderate"
Iran's leaders frequently condemn Israel and predict its demise, but Rouhani, a relative moderate, rarely employs such rhetoric.

Addressing an annual Islamic Unity Conference on Saturday, Rouhani said "one of the ominous results of World War II was the formation of a cancerous tumor in the region".

He went on to refer to Israel as a "fake regime" set up by Western countries.

Iran supports bully boy groups like Hezbollah and Hamas, a regional Iranian catspaw, that are pledged to Israel's destruction.
Update from The Times of Israel at 1:15 pm ET:
EU says ‘totally unacceptable’ for Rouhani to call Israel a ‘cancer’

The European Union condemns Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s calling Israel a “cancer.”

“President Rouhani’s remarks bringing into question Israel’s legitimacy are totally unacceptable. They are also incompatible with the need to address international disputes through dialogue and international law,” a spokesperson for EU foreign policy czar Federica Mogherini says in a statement.

“The European Union reiterates its fundamental commitment to the security of Israel, including with regard to current and emerging threats in the region.”
So that’s all settled. Who’s up for coffee? Catering sent up those nice little pastries to go with it, too.

Turkey protests US observation posts in north Syria
[AlAhram] The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...just another cheapjack Moslem dictatorship, brought to you by the Moslem Brüderbund....
on Saturday sharply criticised a US plan to put observation posts in northern Syria so as to help prevent festivities between Ottoman Turkish forces and a Kurd militia backed by Washington.

"I am of the opinion that these measures will only complicate further an already complicated situation," said Ottoman Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar, quoted by state-run news agency
...and if you can't trust the state-run news agency who can you believe?...

"We have told our American counterparts about our unease several times," Akar said, noting that he recently raised the issue with Joe Dunford, head of the US joint chiefs of staff.

US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said Wednesday that Washington wanted the observation posts along Syria's northern border with Turkey to help minimise tensions between the Turks and Washington's Kurdish allies in the fight against the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....

The aim was to ensure the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which includes the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, "are not drawn off that fight."

"They will be very clearly marked locations day and night so that the Turks know where they're at," he said, noting that the decision was taken in close cooperation with Turkey.

Akar, again urging Washington to halt support for the YPG, said the observation posts would serve no use.

Turkey "will not hesitate to take the necessary measures on the other side of its borders to face up to the risks and threats which could result," he added.

The SDF announced on November 11 it would resume its offensive against IS after having previously called it off due to tensions with Turkey, which had shelled its positions in northern Syria.

Syria's long-oppressed Kurdish minority has established a semi-autonomous region in the north of the country, which has been wracked by conflict since 2011.

Turkey refuses to recognise the territory on its border, fearing it will stoke the separatist ambitions of Kurds in its own country.

Ankara has carried out two operations against Kurdish forces since 2016, the last against the border enclave of Afrin, which it seized in March and is now controlled by pro-Ottoman Turkish Syrian rebels.

Federal officials close border into Mexico amid migrant protests
[SDUT] As predicted. Expect Mexico to see things in a different light, soon. Remember - the wymyns and children are the human shields. 80% are military-age males, many of whom are gang members, like MS-13
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials closed southbound vehicle and pedestrian crossings at the San Ysidro port of entry at noon Sunday amid protests around the migrant caravan.

Northbound vehicle traffic processing at San Ysidro is also currently suspended, and the pedestrian crossings at the San Ysidro port of entry are also suspended.

The agency said it has deployed additional personnel to the border due to multiple planned protests on both sides. The personnel included Customers and Border Protection officers, U.S. Border Patrol agents and Air and Marine agents recently sent to the region, according to a report on CNN. .

San Diego Police also readied on-duty officers Sunday afternoon to respond to the border division to help if needed.
