ONLF Senior Leadership To Arrive In Ethiopia On Saturday
[RADIOSHABELLE] A 20-member delegation composed of big shotship of the Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF) will arrive in Æthiopia on Saturday.

Among members of the delegation include chair of the Front, Mohammed Umar, according to Spokesperson of ONLF.

The Front’s army last week returned to the Somali regional state from their base in Eritrea
...is run by the People's Front for Democracy and Justice (PFDJ), with about the amounts of democracy and justice you'd expect from a party with that name. National elections have been periodically scheduled and cancelled; none have ever been held in the country. The president, Isaias Afewerki, has been in office since independence in 1993 and will probably die there of old age...
after the ONLF had reached an agreement with the government of Æthiopia.

The government and the Front signed a peace deal in the Eritrean capital Asmara last month.

The two sides reached a historic deal that allowed the ONLF to undertake peaceful political struggle in Æthiopia.

Why Tunisian equal inheritance law has sparked controversy in Egypt
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] The Tunisian cabinet’s approval of a draft law that provides equal inheritance rights to women has sparked controversy at Egypt’s esteemed al-Azhar university. The debate has escalated to the extent that Tunisia is now being described as "a non-Islamic country", whose "system is not Moslem."

It seems that the draft law, which has not yet been put up for debate in Tunisian parliament, has kept al-Azhar busier than even the al-Zaytuna Mosque in Tunis. Senior al-Azhar officials have not welcomed the Tunisian move as most of the institutions’ officials have voiced their extreme disapproval of it, according to Raseef22.

The inheritance draft law in Tunisia bases its proposal on the premise that "man-made laws set by politicians are civil laws that can be developed in their nature just like other man-made laws that are part of the internal legislative system." The Tunisian parliament is expected to discuss the draft in the next phase.

#1  "a non-Islamic country", whose "system is not Moslem."

Sounds like a small step on the road to civilization. What's the odds it actually passes?
Posted by: AlanC || 11/30/2018 10:11 Comments || Top||

#2  this whole thing is difficult to understand

does the draft law simply allow individuals the choose to create a will with equal inheritance or are all inheritance decisions done by civil courts?

Tunisia’s Essebsi: Ennahda threatened me personally
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi said on Thursday that the Ennahda Movement Party threatened him personally and that he would not allow it.

Essebsi comments came during his supervision of the National Security Council’s meeting at Carthage Presidential Palace.

Local media reported that the Tunisian president said during the meeting- that the recent statement of Ennahda Movement Party in which it denounced a published blurb by the country’s presidency carrying a statement of one of the members of the defense team of assassinated political opponents Chokri Belaid and Mohammed Brahmi in 2013, after his meeting with him- carries in it a direct threat to him personally.

The Tunisian president said that he will not allow that and the final say is for the judiciary system, according to reports by local media.

President Beji Caid Essebsi added that he receives all the parties without exception as president of Tunisia, noting that "what I had been briefed on by the legal defense team of the deaders Chokri Belaid and Mohammed Brahmi, was reasonable."

The Tunisian president confirmed that the defense team handed him a "volume" of documents related to what is known as the secret apparatus of Ennahda Movement, pointing out that the subject of this apparatus has become known to all the world and is no longer a secret.

He stressed that he is not biased toward any party at the expense of another party, pointing out that he works only for Tunisia’s interest.

Arabia
US provides new evidence on Iran violating UN arms export ban in Yemen
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] The US special envoy for Iran, Brian Hook, said on Thursday that Iran provides Houthis with missiles to target 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...
.

Hook displayed rockets, missiles, small arms and debris from an Iranian drone that he says were intended for Houthis in Yemen
...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of. Except for a tiny handfull of Jews everthing there is very Islamic...
and the Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
in Afghanistan.

He also repeated US claims that Iran is boosting its supply of weapons to Leb’s Hezbollah movement for use in support of Hereditary President-for-Life Bashir Pencilneck al-Assad
Lord of the Baath...
’s forces in Syria as well as Shiite militia in Iraq.

The material shows Iran is determined to send "even more weapons into the hands of even more of its proxies," he said.

"We need to get serious about going after this stuff," Hook told news hounds.

Hook said an Iranian-designed surface-to-air missile with markings in Farsi, the official language of Iran, had been intended for the Houthis in Yemen but was seized by Saudi Arabia. He said it showed the brazenness of Iran’s intentions.

"The conspicuous Farsi markings is Iran’s way of saying they don’t mind being caught violating UN arms restrictions," he said.

Hook did not specify when the weaponry had been seized, but the UN Security Council in 2007 expanded an embargo on arms sales to Iran to include arms exports from Iran.

Even under the sanctions relief provided by the nuclear deal the export ban remains in place until 2021 for conventional weapons and until 2024 for missiles.

UAE’s Gargash: Doha missed opportunity to resolve the crisis
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash has stressed in a tweet that the recent article penned by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo - in which he mentions the importance of 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...
in regional issues - should push the Qatar
...an emirate on the east coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It sits on some really productive gas and oil deposits, which produces the highest per capita income in the world. They piss it all away on religion, financing the Moslem Brotherhood and several al-Qaeda affiliates. Home of nutbag holy manYusuf al-Qaradawi...
i people to question their leadership about the wisdom of using its media outlets against Saudi Arabia.

Gargash said that this stance shows "the absence of wisdom and loss of direction".

In a series of tweets on Wednesday Gargash wrote: "The article by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in The Wall Street Journal, in which he expresses Washington’s strategic support for Saudi Arabia, is very important. Pompeo criticized the double standards and political targeting of Riyadh, stressing the importance of Saudi Arabia on issues related to the region. The American position is clear and positive."

Gargash added that as the US position is clear in its support for the stability of Saudi Arabia and its refusal to target it, the Arab and Gulf position is even more clear. "Saudi Arabia is the basis for any Arab and Gulf building, and its security, success and prosperity is a guarantee for all of us in a region that is still suffering from shocks and crises," Gargash said.

...a Zaidi Shia insurgent group operating in Yemen. They have also been referred to as the Believing Youth. Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi is said to be the spiritual leader of the group and most of the military leaders are his relatives. The Yemeni government has accused the Houthis of having ties to the Iranian government, which wouldn't suprise most of us. The group has managed to gain control over all of Saada Governorate and parts of Amran, Al Jawf and Hajjah Governorates. Its slogan is God is Great, Death to America™, Death to Israel, a curse on the Jews ...
counterparts show up first, the Saudi-owned al-Arabiya television channel reported on Thursday.

The al-Arabiya report came hours after Britannia's ambassador to Yemen, Michael Aron, said the warring factions would attend the summit in Stockholm following discussions with their respective representatives.

Europe
Slovakia latest nation to mull opting out of UN migrant compact
[IsraelTimes] Slovakia could soon join the list of countries opting out of a United Nations
...boodling on the grand scale...
pact seeking to promote an international approach to safe and orderly migration.

The country’s politicians reject the UN pact on Thursday, in a 90-15 vote, saying it is not in line with the country’s policies on migration and security. Parliament asks the government to reject the deal when it likely makes its decision on the document next week.

Slovak leaders are divided over the pact. Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini indicated that his coalition government will not adopt it, but Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajcak supports it.

Australia, Switzerland

India-Pakistan
Plea against Rizvi’s detention dismissed as withdrawn
[DAWN] The Lahore High Court on Wednesday dismissed as withdrawn a habeas corpus petition challenging the detention of Tehrik-e-Labbaik Pakistain (TLP) chief Maulana Khadim Hussain Rizvi, his son Saad Rizvi and TLP patron-in-chief Pir Afzal Qadri.

As the court resumed hearing, a provincial law officer presented a notification issued under Section 3 of the Maintenance of Public Order Ordinance 1960 for a 30-day detention of the TLP leaders.

Justice Syed Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi observed that the habeas corpus petition stood infructuous in the presence of the government notification.

At this, petitioner’s counsel Nabeel Javed Kahloon sought court’s permission to withdraw the petition, which was duly granted.

The judge dismissed the petition as withdrawn.

Advocate Kahloon told media persons that a fresh petition would be filed soon challenging the notification issued by the government for the detention of the TLP leaders.

Syed Zafar Hussain Gilani, a member of the TLP, had assailed the detention of his leaders in a habeas corpus petition. He contended that the police barged in the houses of the TLP leaders, locked away
Youse'll never take me alive coppers!... [BANG!]... Ow!... I quit!
them unlawfully and shifted them to undisclosed places.

He stated that the home department and the police, despite repeated requests, had not issued any grounds for their detention nor informed about their whereabouts.

The petitioner submitted that no FIR or complaint had been lodged against the TLP leaders so far. He argued that the detainees had been arrested without any prior notification and without giving any opportunity of hearing, which was a violation of fundamental rights guaranteed in the Constitution.

ECP issues another notice to Khadim Rizvi after his no-show in party funding case
[DAWN] The Election Commission of Pakistain (ECP) on Thursday ordered the district election commissioner of Lahore to personally deliver a second notice to Khadim Hussain Rizvi, the chief of Tehrik-e-Labbaik Pakistain (TLP), in a case regarding his party's registration and funding.

A five-member commission, headed by Chief Election Commissioner retired Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza, heard the case today.

Neither Rizvi, who was taken under "protective custody" last week, nor his counsel appeared before the commission.

At this, the ECP issued another notice to the TLP chief and instructed the district election commissioner to ensure that the orders are obliged to.

The ECP adjourned the case till December 5.

The case against TLP was initiated after the Supreme Court lambasted the ECP earlier this month for registering a party that had disrupted life in the twin cities last year.

The top court had expressed surprise that the right-wing party had been registered with a National Identity Card for Overseas Paks (Nicop) by an individual residing in the United Arab Emirates.

Supreme Court was also amazed that the ECP's director general of law could not even answer if the person, who applied for TLP's registration as a political party, was a Pak citizen, a dual national or a foreign citizen.

ECP had also admitted that the body had allowed TLP to contest the general elections but the party had failed to provide details of the funds that it used to finance its campaign.

Bangladesh to send cricketers to Pakistan after safety assurances
[DAWN] Bangladesh will send a cricket squad to Pakistain for the first time in three years, Bangladesh officials said on Thursday after receiving assurances from their counterparts about security.

Pakistain and Sri Lanka are co-hosting an Asian Cricket Council tournament next month, with Bangladesh playing all their group matches in Bloody Karachi
...formerly the capital of Pakistain, now merely its most important port and financial center. It is among the largest cities in the world, with a population of 18 million, most of whom hate each other and many of whom are armed and dangerous...
Most cricket nations have steered clear of Pakistain since button men attacked Sri Lanka's team bus in 2009, killing several people.

But international cricket is slowly returning, with Zim-bob-we and the West Indies among countries to visit Pakistain in recent years.

The Bangladesh squad being sent for the Emerging Teams Asia Cup starting December 6 is the first since 2015 to visit Pakistain.

"We agreed to the tour following assurance of adequate security by the Pakistain Cricket Board," said Bangladesh Cricket Board head Nizamuddin Chowdhury.

The board would also send a security detail with the squad, he added.

Bangladesh are in Group B alongside hosts Pakistain, Hong Kong and the UAE.

Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, India and Oman in Group A will play their matches in Colombo, which will also host the semis and final.

Iraq
Sulaimani security ban film amid squeeze on PKK-affiliates
[Rudaw] Asayesh have barred the screening of a film about Kurdish prisoners in The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...Qatar's colony in Asia Minor....
, according to the director of the cinema. The move comes amid apparent moves against PKK-affiliates in the province.

The film, 14 Temmuz (July 14), tells the story of Kurds held in Diyarbakir prison after a 1980 military coup in Turkey. Abused in the jail, a group of prisoners went on a hunger strike.

A planned December 1 screening of the film at Sulaimani’s Salim Cinema has been ordered stopped by the authorities. The cinema said it will go ahead with the screening, in defiance of the order.

"The Sulaimani General Asayesh and all the security forces must understand that cultural and art activities cannot be treated similar to terror cases," read the statement published Wednesday night.

"The showing of this movie, which some of our leaders think will create problems for their friends, Turkey, and harass them in their sleep, for us in southern Kurdistan, is the continuation of the struggle and is insistence that the peaceful resilience of our people in Bakur [Ottoman Turkish Kurdistan] is ongoing," the statement continued. The cinema said it will not negotiate on its basic rights and have decided it will not halt the planned screening.

Speaking to Rudaw earlier in the day, Rawaz Hama Salih, director of Ghazalnour and Salim Cinema, said the Asayesh have not been able to give them an official reasons why they don’t want the film shown.

"They asked whether this move was about the Kurds of Bakur," he recounted, referring to the northern part of Kurdistan in Turkey. "We proudly replied 'yes' and said it was about the resistance and struggle of the past years' of Kurds in Bakur."

Salih pointed out the film was screened at the Slemani and Duhok film festivals this year.

"What looks dangerous to me is that the matter seems to be bigger than that, especially after we sensed it received a lot of attention and different interpretations," said Salih.

In a strongly worded earlier statement, the cinema described the decision as a "continuation of the fascist
...anybody not a leftist...
policy" depicted in the film.

Slamming the "undisguised censorship," Salim cinema accused Turkey, the US, and regional powers of plotting against the Kurdish struggle.

"We deem these attacks as part of the history of servitude," it stated, decrying local authorities who "surrender to placate occupiers."

The cinema demanded the Asayesh, governor, and the Ministry of Culture take a stance on the issue and provide some explanation. There is speculation that the attempt to halt the screening is part of a wider effort to dampen activities of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in Sulaimani.

Ankara alleged the PKK is active in the province and accuses the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) ‐ the dominant party there ‐ of aiding the group that is considered a terror organization by Turkey, the EU, and US. Turkey has refused to permit airlines destined for Sulaimani’s international airport to use its airspace, alleging dangers in the province due to PKK activities.

The PUK has denied the charges and insists that the province is safe.

Asayesh in Sulaimani ordered the closure of offices of unlicensed political parties, including Tavgari Azadi (the Kurdistan Free Society Movement) that is close to the PKK. The party was instructed to shutter its office by 11pm on Wednesday, but talks are ongoing in an attempt to resolve the matter.

The party said it has a license from Baghdad and applied for one in the Kurdistan Region in 2014, "but have not received any response and according to the law... we are entitled to be given a license." It urged the KRG and the Interior Ministry to grant them a license or explain to the public why they refuse to give Tavgari Azadi official recognition.

Representatives of the KRG Ministry of Interior were not immediately available for comment.

Southeast Asia
Philippines' chief peace negotiator steps down
[BenarNews] Philippine President Duterte said he had accepted the resignation of his chief peace adviser Tuesday, as the nation was preparing for a January 2019 plebiscite to ratify a Muslim autonomy law in the south.

Duterte did not give any reason for Jesus Dureza’s resignation as presidential adviser on the peace process, but his surprise announcement came at the same time that he divulged that he had also fired two of Dureza’s top men on allegations of corruption.

He suggested in his speech that Dureza was not implicated in corruption in an anti-poverty program for residents in insurgency-wracked areas. Duterte said, “I am very sad that I accepted the resignation of Secretary Dureza.”

Dureza is considered one of the Duterte’s closest and trusted aides, having been a longtime friend and a former classmate of the president. In his November 27 resignation letter to the president, Dureza said he had informed Duterte as early as November 6 about allegations of corruption involving his two men.

Dureza’s resignation came more than a month before the south holds a special plebiscite aimed at ratifying the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL). Duterte signed the BOL in July last year – four years after the previous government signed a peace deal with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

The plebiscite is to take place in the predominantly Muslim provinces of Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, Maguindanao and Lanao del Sur. It will also include six towns in Lanao del Norte and the cities of Cotabato and Isabela in Basilan.
