As paradoxical and perplexing as it may sound, Netanyahu, avowed enemy of Hamas, is seen by the rulers of Gaza as the best of the worst, the lesser evil in Israel’s elections this week. Indeed, in mid-February 2019, ahead of what was to become a series of four elections, a majority of leaders attending Hamas‘ Shura Council, its consultative cabinet, favored Netanyahu over all others.
Saudi Arabia said some of the world’s most protected oil infrastructure came under missile and drone attack in an escalation of regional hostilities that sent crude prices surging.
The attacks on Sunday were intercepted, Saudi Arabia said, and oil output appeared to be unaffected.
Igal Una, who heads the cyber directorate, is promoting the legislation and has the support of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The background to the legislative push is the string of cyberattacks against Israeli companies during the past year.
A new CBS News/YouGov poll shows that most Americans (54%) now think that the biggest threat to their way of life comes from domestic enemies.
There is bipartisan agreement that the nation’s way of life is most threatened by individuals who are already in America, with 53% of Democrats, 56% of Republicans, and 57% of Independents each choosing that as the most significant risk. One in five Americans (20%) believe economic forces present a greater challenge, while slightly fewer (17%) chose natural disasters or viruses as a key concern.
About one in 12 Americans (8%) think foreign countries are the most looming threat, with Republicans being more likely than Democrats (4%) to say this.
No speculation is needed. Those who wield power are demanding it. The only question is how much opposition they will encounter.
I’ve been resisting the conclusion that this is Liberals‘ 9/11 because it at first seemed hyperbolic, even though they’re using the same weapons against their critics (if you question all the new powers they want, it means you love the Terrorists).
But this is Liberals‘ 9/11.
Vaccines that employ mRNA were in early development before COVID-19 brought the world to its knees, and nanotech has been central to these efforts — unsurprisingly, as viruses are just naturally occurring nanoparticles themselves.
The key to making effective nanoparticle vaccines, and medicines in general, lies in mimicking the natural behaviors and tricks that make viruses so successful, and dangerous, in the first place.
Russia accounted for almost all of Armenia’s arms imports over the past five years. A total of 60 per cent of Azerbaijan’s arms imports came from Israel and 31 per cent from Russia.
Russia will continue its arms sales to both Azerbaijan and Armenia despite the latest flare-up of the conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview broadcast on Saturday.
Russia has long been Azerbaijan’s main arms supplier. Between 2013 and 2017, its share was 65 percent of Azerbaijan’s total foreign weapons imports (Sipri.org, March 2018). Although Russia is the main arms seller to Azerbaijan, it also provides military equipment to Armenia.
In the United States, there is a growing industry of consultants who advise organisations about how to rid themselves of their supposed ‘white-supremacy culture’. According to these zealots, some of the attitudes and behaviours associated with white-supremacy culture include ‘individualism’, ‘a sense of urgency’ and ‘perfectionism’.
In other words, those who take their work too seriously may be tainted by white supremacy. Thinking logically is basically thinking white.
