China and Its Connection to Israel and Middle East

The World News:- Historically, the Middle East has had only four major powers involved in it: France, Britain, America, and Russia. In the early years, before and just after Israel's creation it was France and England heavily involved. It was not until the early 1960's, America replaced both as the major player and weapons importer\exporter to Israel. Russia meddled in the region in the 50's, with weapon exports to many Arab countries.
Since the 60's, the two major powers influencing the area have been Russia and America, however, this declined after 1992, when Russia ended communist rule. They did continue to support Syria, Egypt and others but were focused more on themselves. This left only America until now.
Today, Russia is re-emerging in Syria under Putin, Iran is a new player and heavily involved and may be in cahoots with Russia to keep Syria- Syria under Assad. America seems to be hesitant to do much in the area unless a real provocative act occurs, and China, which up to now has shown little interest in the region.
China's interest in keeping the Middle East and Israel at peace is economic. Since 1988, China has recognized the Palestinians in the Gaza area as a "state" and has always supported its attempt to upgrade its status in the UN. On May 6th, it proposed its own peace plan for the Middle East dilemma that was really regurgitated points presented many times before. Recently, Israel's PM visited China and found that China greatly valued the Israel state for economic reasons now and in the future.
China is Israel’s third largest trade partner after the US and EU, with trade set to grow from around $8 billion to $10 billion in three years. Besides Russia and America, it is the third most desired high tech area for innovative designs in weapon systems. China buys Israeli technology to improve upon just as they did with Russian technology, which then they sell to Iran. Ironically, Israel and China signed five agreements in cooperation and trade in aerospace, agricultural research, financial cooperation, science and technology. In fact, in a disturbing comment, Israel's Netanyahu suggested that if China serves as an “engine for Israeli economic growth . . . I propose that Israel in many ways be the R&D lab for China.”
China is one of Iran's largest purchasers of its oil. The sanctions Obama imposed on Iran did little to China because they were exempt! Iran's weapons are Chinese versions of Russian ones, which Iran buys. But China wants to keep Israel within its own influence for the two natural gas fields off the Israeli coast containing up to 19 trillion cubic feet. China wants some of it and as the fields become developed, no doubt will obtain some that benefits Israel.
But, whose side would China be on should there be another regional war? Would China act like Russia in sending military assets to protect their interests they have invest in? Would they back the Palestinians or Israel? Which side do they think provides more economic value?
One can see how China, Russia, Iran and America are now the major influences in this area of the world for economic and political reasons.

Getting Around Your Difficult Task of House Relocation

If you are moving your home and need to relocate your business office, then you are required some specific things for getting done with your job. In fact, you require a large van with bulky items such as fridge and sofa. This means that a vehicle is large enough for transporting your items from where they are to be and where they need to be. Also you require an extra pair of hands to help with the unloading and lifting of the items. In other words, you need to hire the man and van Purley services.

Even though there are users who would be saying that using a friend for getting done with your work is going to sort out everything, there are still some solid reasons which proves that man van services can work best for your needs.

Moving Services are as Affordable as You Think Them to Be

The only reasons that we decide about hiring or not hiring some one are related to money, which is means that by getting someone out to drive out to your home or office, you still need to load up all of your belongings and have to drive over to your new premises. This surely doesn’t cost much for an arm or leg. This man van hire starts from as little as £40, which is surely not a lot of money, considering the fact that you already are dropping tens and thousands of pounds on new office building or a family home. This means that when you decide to get a few extra quid through a moving service, you can get some other benefits too.

Experience Is Always Handy

Even though moving from one place to another might not be the most complicated task in the world, moving of large items and large quantities do require skills and applications. You also need to know how you can make the most of the space that you have got, how you can load or unload a van in the most efficient way that’s possible and how you can move the heavy objects without having to risk injury.

You also need to know that your mate Steve hasn't got experience and knowledge. Also you need to know that the man van you hire is going to help you save time and effort in the long run.

Local Knowledge Always Come in Handy

In case, we are moving to a new area, we have to deal with the unfamiliar layout and ways around that particular area and this can add few grey hairs to your head. This means that if you don’t know the layouts of the roads, the inevitable one way systems and the speed traps, then the short drive down the motorway is going to turn into a bit of Greek Odyssey.

This means that you need to hire someone having the local knowledge. They will have you reach your destination in the record time, which is why you don’t have to worry as to whether your first post to the new location is going to be ticket or a fine.

With the help of man and van Purley, you can get around your work of house relocation for no trouble at all.

Saudi Arabia Legalises 800,000 Pakistani Workers

The World News:- Almost 800,000 Pakistanis have been legalised by Saudi Arabia ahead of the November 4 deadline making expatriates bound to ensure their visas are valid or else be ready for possible deportation.
Muhammad Naeem Khan, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the country, pointed out in an interview with the Arab News that a total of 729,932 Pakistani workers have so far benefited from the amnesty deadline.
Khan said more than 396,152 nationals have already changed their sponsorships, while 333,780 workers are in the process of legalization of status in the Kingdom.
“Our assessment is that more than 800,000 people have corrected their status, if we include those who came to Saudi Arabia on Umrah and Hajj visas and other domestic workers like drivers, housemaids, watchman and agricultural workers,” he said.
“It would be helpful for those remaining Pakistanis who have not yet been able to regularise their status if special concession and grace period is announced by the Saudi authorities,” he added.
“I would like to extend my appreciation to the Saudi Ministries of Interior, Foreign Affairs and Labour as well as the Immigration Department for their cooperation and support especially to the Pakistani community in the Kingdom,” Naeem Khan said.

“It is a huge success for us to achieve the goal to legalise our nationals.”
Addressing the issue of nationals who will not be able to correct their statuses, the ambassador said: “We are going to start a new registration campaign after the amnesty deadline in which we will facilitate procedures for those who are not covered by the existing amnesty period.”
Elaborating, he said: “The embassy has created 80 different focal points all over the Kingdom to help illegal workers register with the embassy.”
Khan emphasised the fact that all undocumented workers must legalise their status before the Nov 4 deadline. He urged Pakistani workers who did find jobs to coordinate with the embassy and consulate general in Jeddah for help.
With the new concessions in the Saudi labour laws, he explained, “workers who arrived in the Kingdom after April 6 as freelancers or those who are declared as runaway workers are not included in the amnesty. They should not hesitate to register with the embassy, focal points and the consulate general in Jeddah.”
“Umrah and Haj overstayers who possess no documentation to claim that they entered the Kingdom legally and are not even fingerprinted, should immediately contact us. We will try to help them and find a way to legalize them.”
The Ministry of Labour earlier stressed that after the expiry of the amnesty deadline, penalties will be imposed on violators and their employers.
The recruiters of illegal workers could face jail up to two years and fines of up to SR100,000.
About a third of Saudi Arabia’s 27 million population comprises of foreign workers.
The kingdom has turned a blind eye to minor violations of its strict labour regulations for decades, allowing an influx of cheap labour used both by companies and as domestic workers.
Yemen, Egypt, Lebanon, Ethiopia, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Indonesia and the Philippines all have large numbers of citizens working in the country and all rely heavily on their remittances.
As part of a series of reforms over the last two years, Saudi Arabia has tried to free up jobs for its own citizens, 12 per cent of whom are unemployed, according to official data.

Prosecutor Calls for Death in Delhi Bus Rape Case

The World News:- The prosecutor while in the fatal New Delhi gang rape known as Wednesday for all 4 convicted rapists to get hanged, though one of several defendants shouted out his innocence as law enforcement drove him into your courthouse.

It was not obvious which from the four males was shouting, due to the fact his facial area was obscured driving the law enforcement van's major steel mesh, but he continuously called out, "I am innocent! I am harmless!" because the van drove earlier a scrum of reporters.

The boys have been convicted Tuesday within the December gang rape of a 23-year-old lady on a going New Delhi bus, a brutal criminal offense that unleashed a wave of community anger over the treatment of Indian girls in addition to a long-unspoken epidemic of sexual violence. The sufferer died two weeks soon after the attack.

The four face possibly existence imprisonment or death by hanging. Phone calls to the adult men for being executed have developed significantly loud, with every person within the victim's parents to major political leaders demanding the men be sentenced to dying.

Prosecutor Dayan Krishnan said the attack stunned India's "collective conscience," noting the law enforcement report showed the lads pulled out a few of the victim's physique parts immediately after savagely penetrating her using an iron rod.

"There is usually nothing far more diabolic than a helpless woman place as a result of torture," he claimed.

Judge Yogesh Khanna said he would hand down the sentences on Friday.

The four men sat in in the back of the tiny courtroom in T-shirts or short-sleeved polo shirts, unshackled and with policemen holding them from both sides. They appeared impassive, though it was not clear how much they understood of the proceedings. Most of the day's arguments were in English, a language that only one of the men, Vinay Sharma, is able to speak. They had no translator.

The defense lawyers have long proclaimed their clients' innocence, while sometimes indicating some of the men may have been on the bus. They insist that any confessions were coerced by police torture.

On Wednesday, they called for the judge to avoid the death penalty.

"If they have committed a mistake, and the court accepted that they committed a mistake, then they should be given a chance to reform," lawyer A.P. Singh, who has worked with all the defendants at various times, said outside the courthouse. "The accused are not habitual and professional criminals. They should be given one chance to reform themselves."

Vivek Sharma, a lawyer representing Pawan Gupta, a 19-year-old fruit vendor, asked for a sentence of life imprisonment, noting that Indian law calls for execution only in very exceptional cases.

Sharma said Wednesday the crime may have happened "on the spur of the moment" and urged leniency for his client because of his age and because he had to support his impoverished family. He said Gupta did not join in the rape or in violating the victim with the rod.

The family of the victim watched from one row in front of the prisoners, close enough to touch one another.

When the hearing ended, they again called for the men to be hanged.

"They finished our daughter," said the father, who cannot be named under Indian laws guarding his daughter's identity as a rape victim. "We want them finished."

An airport baggage handler who makes a little more than $200 a month, he and his wife had broken with the conservative rural culture in which they had been raised, encouraging their daughter to study hard and even leave home to get a degree in physiotherapy. At the time of the attack, she was awaiting her exam results.

India's Supreme Court has ruled that the death penalty should only be used in "the rarest of rare cases," though what defines those cases remains highly debated.

By most estimates, more than 100 people are sentenced to death in India in most years, but the vast majority of those cases are eventually commuted to life in prison.

India had an unofficial moratorium on capital punishment that lasted eight years, ending with the November 2012 execution of Mohammed Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving gunmen in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. Two months later, Mohammad Afzal Guru, convicted in a deadly 2001 attack on India's Parliament, was also hanged.

Indian media reports say about 400 prisoners are believed to be currently awaiting execution.

In addition to their confessions, the four convicted rapists were identified by the woman's male friend who was with her on the night of the attack. The two were coming home from a movie when the men tricked them into boarding a bus they were joy-riding. They quickly beat the friend into submission, held the woman down and took turns raping her. They also penetrated her with the rod, causing severe internal injuries that led to her death.

The defendants, like the victim, come from poor and ill-educated families. One, Mukesh Singh, occasionally drove the bus where the crime occurred and cleaned it. Another, Vinay Sharma, was a 20-year-old assistant at a gym and the only one of the attackers to graduate from high school. Akshay Thakur, 28, occasionally worked as a driver's helper on the bus.

With them on the bus were two other men. Police say Ram Singh, 33, hanged himself in prison, though his family insists he was murdered. He was the brother of Mukesh Singh. Another man - an 18-year-old who was a juvenile at the time of the attack and cannot be identified under Indian law - was convicted in August and will serve the maximum sentence he faced, three years in a reform home.

About two dozen protesters gathered Wednesday by the courthouse, calling for the four men to be executed and taunting defense lawyers.

Brazil Leader Postpones US State Visit Over Spy Row

The World News:- Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff postponed a long-planned state visit to Washington on Tuesday, quite possibly the most significant diplomatic fall-out yet from Edward Snowden's leak of US strategies.

When both sides couched the cancellation in diplomatic phrases, it marks an embarrassment for President Barack Obama along with a blow to his initiatives to enhance ties with the critical Latin American energy.

The visit experienced been scheduled for 23 Oct but was termed into problem soon after documents leaked by Snowden, a previous US intelligence technician, unveiled the extent of yankee spying on its Brazilian ally.

Obama has become attempting to defuse the row, most just lately throughout talks with Rousseff over the sidelines of this month's G20 summit, and he spoke together with her yet again on Monday by telephone.

But Brazil was unmoved, and on Tuesday Rousseff introduced an end into the speculation, confirming that her vacation was off.

"The two presidents chose to postpone the condition check out because the end result of this stop by should really not be conditioned on a concern which for Brazil has not been satisfactorily resolved," Rousseff's office stated.

Sovereignty violation

Her statement reflected Brazil's anger over Snowden's disclosures that the NSA spied on her email communications and on the state-run energy giant Petrobras.

"The illegal interceptions of communications and data of citizens, companies and members of the Brazilian government represents a serious act which violates national sovereignty and is incompatible with democratic coexistence between friendly countries," Rousseff's statement said.

In Washington, White House spokesperson Jay Carney, put a brave face on the situation.

"It's because the relationship is so important and because it has so many facets that the president agrees with this decision they made together to postpone the visit," Carney said.

Insisting that another later visit could be organised, Carney added: "It should not be overshadowed by a bilateral issue no matter how important or challenging the issue may be".

The spying row stems from allegations made by Snowden, a former NSA contractor who fled the United States and revealed the scope of the NSA's activities to Brazil-based journalist Glenn Greenwald.

In July, the Brazilian daily Globo, citing documents provided by Snowden, who has been granted temporary asylum in Russia, reported that US agencies eavesdrop on Brazilians' phone calls and Internet communications.

The report said Washington maintained an intelligence base in Brasilia, part of a network of 16 such stations operated by the NSA around the world to intercept foreign satellite transmissions.

Brazilian Communications Minister Paulo Bernardo dismissed claims by US officials that the NSA was only collecting metadata - logs of phone numbers called and the duration of such calls - and not listening in on calls.

Washington, he said, is conducting a "much deeper surveillance".

Brazil demanded an investigation and a US promise to stop such spying.

Snowden, who first fled to Hong Kong before moving on to Russia, is wanted by the United States on espionage charges.

Rousseff is to address the UN General Assembly session in New York later this month and her aides said she will raise the spying issue.

Contract on hold

Brazil's first woman president visited Washington last year, returning a visit to Brazil by Obama the previous year.

Brazil is Latin America's economic powerhouse and Obama made it a priority to improve ties, which were often prickly under Rousseff's predecessor Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

As the cancelled visit shows, the Snowden row has damaged tied between the two trading giants of the Western Hemisphere.

A Brazilian government source said last week that the spying row may have brought negotiations on buying US warplanes to a halt.

The talks to buy 36 fighter jets at a cost of around $5bn have been going on for years, and got a nudge when US Vice President Joe Biden visited Brazil in May.

Vying for the lucrative Air Force contract are the US Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet, the Rafale from France's Dassault the Gripen NG by Saab of Sweden.

The United States is currently Brazil's second biggest trading partner behind China.

Snowden's revelations about international US spying and snooping programs have also caused Obama acute embarrassment and in relations with other allies.

Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto complained to Obama over reports US spies had gone through his emails.

There have also been pointed questions on the NSA issue from the likes of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, for whom the revelations caused discomfort during a re-election campaign.
