Bahraini authorities have banned all protest gatherings amid escalating clashes in the Gulf kingdom. It’s the most sweeping attempt so far to quash anti-regime protests that’ve been going on in the country for nearly two years. The restrictions come after the country’s police reportedly attacked anti-monarchy protesters with tear gas and rubber bullets in the capital Manama on Monday. Clashes in Bahrain occur almost daily, with around 80 people being killed since the unrest began.

November 1, 2012 GAZAFor the best part of the past 16 months, the Palestinian Authority failed to pay on time the wages of more than its 200,000 public-sector employees. The delays in salary payments are caused by delays in the transfer [to the Palestinian Authority] of emergency aid funds and Palestinian tax revenues collected by Israel on behalf of the Palestinian Authority. The economic implications of the situation are far-reaching and disastrous, argues economist Yitzhak Gal in a report prepared by him for the monthly e-newsletter Iqtisadi (September issue, published by the Tel Aviv University Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies under the heading “The Palestinian Economic Crisis: A Loud Wake-Up Call.” The situation is liable to have dangerous [social and political] consequences due to the fact that the Palestinian public-sector employees, including the security establishment personnel, account for [well] over a…

November 1, 2012LONDON — Unemployment in the 17-country eurozone hit a record high of 11.6 per cent in September, official figures showed Wednesday, a sign the economy is deteriorating, as governments struggle to get a grip on their three-year debt crisis. The rate reported by Eurostat, the EU’s statistics office, was up from an upwardly revised 11.5 per cent in August. In total, 18.49 million people were out of work in the eurozone in September, up 146,000 from the previous month, the biggest increase in three months. While the eurozone’s unemployment rate has been rising steadily for the past year as the economy struggled with a financial crisis and government spending cuts, the United States has seen its equivalent rate fall to 7.8 per cent. The latest U.S. figures are due this Friday. With the eurozone economy fading, most economists think unemployment will keep increasing over the coming…

Kuwaiti police have clashed with thousands of people protesting against the detention of a leading opposition figure, government and opposition sources say.

On Wednesday night, the police fired tear gas and stun grenades to disperse the opposition protesters who marched on the central prison in the capital Kuwait City where Mussallam al-Barrak is detained.

Hours earlier, the public prosecutor extended the detention of Barrak for 10 days over comments considered critical of the emir, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al Sabah.

According to opposition activists, more than 10,000 people attended Wednesday’s demonstration. The protesters assembled at Barrak’s residence in Andalus, 20 kilometres southwest of Kuwait City, and then walked towards the central jail about three kilometers away.

The demonstrators were chanting “freedom for Barrak” and holding banners reading “The nation wants the release of the conscience of the nation.”

On October 21, at least 100 protesters were injured at a…

US assassination drone strikes have rekindled anti-American sentiments in Yemen as the airborne attacks have mostly resulted in the death of civilians and escalated instability in the impoverished Arab nation, Press TV reports.

Yemenis are demanding that the government take action to halt the killing of civilians in air raids, which they say is a violation of their country’s independence and national sovereignty.

“We regard the use of US assassination drones as an intervention, which has killed innocent people. This is a violation of our independence and beliefs. The continued use of these drones will fuel only more anger,” a Yemeni man told Press TV on Thursday.

“The US deadly drones have hit everywhere in Yemen. Because of this aggression, all Yemenis are united under the fact that this is an aggression and violation of our basic rights,” another Yemeni man added.

Yemenis have held several anti-US protest…

A prominent Gaza-based pro-Palestinian activist says that Gazans are under heavy psychological pressure from Israel just because they pursue their member state bid at the UN.

The comments come as the Israeli warplanes have again carried out new airstrikes on the Gaza Strip in an unabated wave of aggression against the besieged territory.

The Israeli aircraft fired missiles at three targets in the central and southern parts of Gaza during the early hours of Monday.

On Sunday, a Palestinian was killed and another injured when a remote-controlled Israeli assassination drone struck the town of Rafah.

The Israeli military frequently carries out airstrikes and other attacks on the Gaza Strip, saying the actions are being conducted for defensive purposes. However, disproportionate force is always used, in violation of international law, and civilians are often killed or injured.

Gaza has been blockaded since 2007, a situation that…

The US has launched an aggressive campaign to re-establish a new Syrian opposition force with its Secretary of State rejecting existing opposition leaders as “a bunch of out-of-touch exiles” that should be replaced by a group representing active insurgents.

“We’ve made it clear that the SNC (Syrian National Council) can no longer be viewed as the visible leader of the opposition,” said US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday during an official visit to Croatia.

She further declared, “That opposition must include people from inside Syria and others who have a legitimate voice that needs to be heard.”

Clinton’s assertions clearly confirm the leading role of the American government, the closest Israeli ally, in fueling the anti-Syria insurgency aimed at removing the pro-resistance government of President Bashar Al-Assad.

The development comes as hundreds of opposition figures plan to gather in Doha, Qatar, next week in an attempt to establish…

There is a reality in Chris Stevens which no one but this blog is going to address and that is what part did the Obama gay agenda have in his murder in sexual connections and political payback inside this regime?

It was absolutely no secret that Chris Stevens was gay. Thee entire diplomatic corp of the world knew he was a sodomite and those who would speak about it, were perplexed as to why Obama stationed an openly gay male inside Muslim nations where the very acts were a death sentence.

Chris Stevens has a meteoric rise in the diplomatic corp starting with the Bush people. His premier station from the start was Israel and in the heat of situations, it was him that ended up in Libya.

We know for a fact that Chris Stevens was briefing Sen. Inhofe of Oklahoma two weeks prior to what…

Ever since the Balfour Declaration of 1917, Britain has denied our people their rights

On the run: Britain has not taken the steps to realise the establishment of a free state of Palestine Photo:Getty images

Dr Nabeel Shaath, The Telegraph

Over the past few weeks, British diplomats have stated that they are doing all they can to discourage Palestine’s bid for “observer state” status in the UN General Assembly. If this is an official British position, then it is reprehensible, yet not all that surprising.

Ninety-five years ago tomorrow, on November 2, 1917, British imperialism in Palestine began when Lord Balfour, the then British foreign secretary and former prime minister, sent a letter to Baron Rothschild, one of the leaders of the Zionist movement. This letter became known as the “Balfour Declaration”.

In that letter, Balfour promised British support for the Zionist programme of establishing a “national home for the…

Drone warfare and surveillance has expanded exponentially since their arrival in 2004 over Pakistan for use in targeted killings. Drones are just one of many vital issues for those who seek peace and freedom, but should be near the top of the “red alert” warnings for Americans, as not only have human rights groups and studies stated that they are instruments of state terror, but they have been embraced by Congress to create unfriendly skies over America as well.

Even the warmongering Brookings Institution has concluded that there are 10 civilians killed to every 1 “militant” in Pakistan alone.  Obama denies this, and a range of other documented evidence, when he states that only “precision strikes against al Qaeda and their affiliates” are undertaken. Obama has been an unrepentant murderer by employing drone strikes at his whim, and has even gone so far as to make…
