MH370: Passengers' families release questions-Bluefin-21 has been redeployed again-Author: By Faith Karimi and Josh Levs CNN-Published On: Apr 16 2014 12:48:42 AM CDT Updated On: Apr 16 2014 02:55:30 PM CDT-(CNN)
Families of some of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 passengers released a list of questions Wednesday that they said authorities have so far not answered.Many of the 26 questions focus on technical issues involving emergency locator transmitters, or ELTs, and "black boxes." With an apparent in-depth understanding of how these work, the families ask about the specific technology on the missing plane.ELTs are designed to activate after a crash and send a signal to a frequency monitored by air traffic controllers. "Black boxes," or voice and data recorders, could shed light on what went on in the plane's cockpit and other crucial flight information.The families' final seven questions involve "protocol," including this: What did Malaysia Airlines do when the flight went missing? The families also ask whether search and rescue teams have final results from searched areas, and whether the Malaysian government could specify the rights of family members "to know the facts of cases or the details of an incident."The questions were posted on the social media site Weibo by a committee in Beijing representing some of the passengers' families. Some of the "questions" are requests that evidence be shared with them, including the flight's logbook and air traffic control audio.Malaysia Airlines, for its part, has said it shares all the information it has with appropriate authorities.In a video message this month, Hugh Dunleavy, the airline's commercial director, said the company shares the same "fundamental requirement" as the families: to find out what happened.Malaysian authorities have come under criticism repeatedly for their handling of the investigation. But the government has insisted it's doing what it can to get to the bottom of what happened and support the families."We understand that it has been a difficult time for all the families. And we appreciate that many families want to see physical evidence before they will accept that MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean," acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said at the end of March. "... The question that the families principally want answered, is the question we simply do not have the answer to -- namely, where their loved ones are, and where is MH370."A week earlier, Hishammuddin made a pledge to the families: "We will do everything in our power to keep you informed."
Bluefin-21 resumes search
An underwater vessel searching for traces of the jet resurfaced Wednesday after 11 hours in the water. The vessel need to have a technical issue repaired.Part of the equipment designed to help the Bluefin-21 move deeper and avoid seepage was low on oil. Officials replenished the supply and redeployed the vessel.The Bluefin-21 has its electronics sealed in bottles so they are protected from salt water. As the probe moves deeper and the pressure increases the operating system pushes oil into these bottles. The oil counters the pressure and prevents salt water from seeping in. If oil fills the container, there's no space for salt water."In no way should this suggest that (the AUV) is not 'hardy' enough to be working at this depth. On the contrary, it is absolutely the best piece of equipment for the job we are doing," a source close to the operation said, adding that technical issues are common at great depths.While on deck, its data were downloaded, the Australian Joint Agency Coordination Centre said."Bluefin-21 ... is currently continuing its underwater search," the center said in a statement. "Initial analysis of the data downloaded this morning indicates no significant detections."This is the second setback for the underwater vehicle that's scanning the ocean floor for debris linked to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.In its first dive Monday, crews dipped it into the Indian Ocean on what was expected to be a 20-hour deployment. It returned less than eight hours later after it exceeded its maximum dive depth."What Bluefin did was it detected that it was moving near its maximum depth, sending signals back to its operators," said Mike Dean, the U.S. Navy deputy director for salvage and diving."After the two signals, which was deeper than what we anticipated, the operators decided to bring it back and reassess the boundaries in which they were operating it," he said.It found no debris during its shortened scanning session.Searchers lowered it toward the ocean floor for a second dive Tuesday, and it resurfaced short of its 24-hour mission because of technical issues. It then went down again.
Bluefin-21 takes two hours to get near the ocean floor and another two hours to return to the surface. It aims to map the ocean floor for 16 hours to retrieve data, which then take four hours to analyze.The vessel searches maximum depths of 4,500 meters (14,764 feet), and before the technical interruption, it was scheduled to complete its second dive about 10 a.m. ET, a source said. It's unclear when it will finish its current mission following the resurfacing."We have known a long time that especially the recent search area, the new search area they are looking at now, there's a lot of debris there because it is close to what we call the garbage patch, and that's where all of the garbage accumulates," said Erik Van Sebille, a physical oceanographer at University of New South Wales.
"There are five in each basin and one in the Indian Ocean. Everything that has been thrown in the ocean in the last 50 years and still floating is somewhere in this garbage patch." Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 vanished on March 8 with 239 people aboard after taking off from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, bound for Beijing.With no debris found after weeks of searches and no possible pings from the plane's "black boxes" detected in a week, officials said it's time to focus the search underwater.While air and sea surface searches continued Wednesday about 2,087 kilometers (1,297 miles) northwest of Perth, those searches are probably nearing an end."The air and surface search for floating material will be completed in the next two to three days in the area where the aircraft most likely entered the water," said retired Australian Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, head of the Joint Agency Coordination Centre. Fourteen planes, including three civilian jets, and 11 ships are involved in the search Wednesday.It could take up to two months to scan the entire search area.

EU countries to boost defence budgets in light of Ukraine
Today @ 09:29-APR 16,14-EUOBSERVER-By Andrew Rettman
BRUSSELS - Military chiefs have said the Ukraine crisis is a “wake-up call” for EU countries’ defence spending, as the US backed Ukraine’s use of force in eastern regions.Speaking to press after a regular meeting of EU defence ministers in Luxembourg on Tuesday (15 April), the deputy chief of the EU’s external action service, Maciej Popowski, said: “We’ve had 70 years of peace now [in Europe], but we see that power politics is back with a vengeance, so it’s a wake-up call and now we need to get serious about defence.”He noted that “this was the feeling around the table” at the Luxembourg event.He added that EU foreign relations chief Catherine Ashton told the ministers: “If Ukraine is not a trigger to get serious about spending, about pooling and sharing, about smart defence, then what more do we need to get real?”Nato secretary general Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who attended the debate, told press: "We need to train and exercise more together, for instance the Nato Response Force and the EU battlegroups, so that we stand ready for whatever the future may bring.”The EU discussion comes after member states last December pledged to co-operate more strongly on defence, but with few concrete results so far.Tuesday’s meeting saw the ministers decide to prolong for two years a military training mission in Mali and to launch a new police-training mission alongside the military project.But Popowski noted that EU countries are dragging their heels in terms of committing vital assets to a peacekeeping mission in the Central African Republic in what he called a problem for “EU credibility”.The debate came as Ukrainian forces launched what they called “anti-terror” operations against heavily-armed pro-Russian separatists - some of whom are suspected to be Russian soldiers in disguise - in eastern Ukraine.Russian leader Vladimir Putin said the action means Ukraine “is on the brink of civil war".He has massed elite troops on the Ukrainian border and pledged to defend Russian-speakers in the country by invading the Ukrainian mainland if need be. But his foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, noted on Wednesday that high-level talks between the EU, Russia, Ukraine and the US due in Geneva on Thursday can still go ahead despite Ukraine's counter-measures.Popowski underlined that neither EU countries nor Nato forces will help Ukraine if it clashes with the Russian army. “Neither at Nato nor in the EU was there a discussion of military intervention,” he said.But the US has put its naval vessels in the Black Sea on high alert, in part due to an incident earlier this week in which an unarmed Russian military jet repeatedly flew close to one of it ships.State department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told media in Washington: “We are certainly calling for de-escalation. But the [Ukrainian] government is overseeing all parts of Ukraine, and they have a responsibility to take steps needed to maintain calm in their country.” “[That] is hardly a civil war. That is maintaining peace and calm in their own country,” she added in response to Putin’s statement.Like Popowski, she noted: “We’re not actively considering military assistance [to Ukraine].”But she said the US and the EU are ready to impose further sanctions on Russia if Thursday’s talks fail to see Russia take a constructive approach.“Well, we certainly would encourage them [Russia] – would discourage them from having a reaction. The Ukrainian government is maintaining – taking steps to maintain peace and order in their own country. So it’s hard to see what the explanation would be for Russian action there,” she said.
OSCE Secretary General seeks EU backing for scaled up monitoring mission in Ukraine
BRUSSELS 16 April 2014-Newsroom
BRUSSELS, 16 April 2014 - OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier is seeking EU support for scaling up the Organization’s Special Monitoring Mission in Ukraine to ensure objective fact-finding as the situation on the ground continues to deteriorate.Meeting leaders of the EU External Action Service in Brussels today, Zannier expressed his concerns at the developments in the east of the country and underlined the importance of OSCE monitoring, while appealing to all sides to refrain from violence and calling for engagement in dialogue.“What we are seeing in the eastern part of Ukraine is extremely troubling. The neutral observation and factual reporting carried out by OSCE monitors contributes to creating conditions for de-escalating this dangerous situation,” he said.The Special Monitoring Mission has been working throughout Ukraine for the past fortnight after its deployment was agreed by the 57 OSCE participating States. Its aim is to monitor events all over the country and gather neutral information, contributing to reducing tensions. Around one hundred monitors are currently deployed in Kherson, Odesa, Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Kharkiv, Donetsk, Dnipropetrovsk, Chernivtsi, Luhansk and Kyiv.When #NATO 's rapidly deployable forces are called to action, the first torch party includes Operational Liaison and Reconnaissance Teams. Their training ensures they have all the skills and capabilities necessary to be able to deploy anywhere in the world at short notice.
16 Apr. 2014-Doorstep statement-by NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen following the meeting of the North Atlantic Council-NATO
Good afternoon.We have just taken further measures to respond to the crisis in Ukraine.We agree that a political solution is the only way forward.NATO fully supports the Geneva talks and all the efforts of the international community to find a political solution, which fulfils the democratic aspirations of the entire Ukrainian people and respects the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.We call on Russia to be part of the solution. To stop destabilising Ukraine, pull back its troops from the borders and make clear it doesn't support the violent actions of well armed militias of pro-Russian separatists.NATO's core task is to protect and defend our Allies. We have already taken a series of steps, including enhancing our Air Policing mission in the Baltic States, and AWACS surveillance flights over Poland and Romania.Today, we agreed on a package of further military measures to reinforce our collective defence and demonstrate the strength of Allied solidarity.We will have more planes in the air, more ships on the water, and more readiness on the land.For example, air policing aircraft will fly more sorties over the Baltic region. Allied ships will deploy to the Baltic Sea, the Eastern Mediterranean and elsewhere, as required. Military staff from Allied nations will deploy to enhance our preparedness, training and exercises. Our defence plans will be reviewed and reinforced.We will start to implement these measures straight away. More will follow, if needed, in the weeks and months to come.Our decisions today are about defence, deterrence and de-escalation. They are entirely in line with our international commitments.They send a clear message: NATO will protect every Ally and defend against any threat against our fundamental security.That is our firm commitment.
Moderator: NPR, CBS.Q: Terri Schultz, with NPR and CBS. Mr. Secretary General, when you say that you’ll start to implement these measures straight away, what will we literally see in the coming days, especially in terms of military personnel being deployed? Are you literally sending contingents of trainers or other personnel to the Baltic States who have asked for it, to Poland? What can you tell us in material terms is going to happen in the very nearest days? Thanks.
Anders Fogh Rasmussen: You will see deployments at sea, in the air, on land to take place immediately. That means within days, pending of course practical… a number of practical considerations. But we have decided to implement immediately.Moderator: Associated Press.
Question: Associated Press. Secretary General, how many soldiers, planes and ships will be involved by these measures that you took today? Anders Fogh Rasmussen: I won’t go into operational details, but I can tell you that we will deploy enough to enhance our preparedness and enough to prepare for more if needed.
Moderator: Latvian Media.Question: Ina Strazdina, Radio Latvia. Secretary General, did you discuss also idea of creating permanent NATO bases in Baltic States, such as new air base, for example, or ports for NATO ships? Thank you.Anders Fogh Rasmussen: We haven’t today taken decisions on such facilities. What we have done today is to agree on a package of measures that can be implemented immediately. But there will be follow-on work.When foreign ministers met at the end… at the beginning of this month, they tasked our military authorities to look into how we could possibly further strengthen collective defence and that also includes more medium-term and long-term measures, and at this headquarters as well as our military authorities will continue exploring ways to possibly further enhance our collective defence.
Question: Hello. (Inaudible), Romanian News Agency.Secretary General, you haven’t mentioned Romania between those countries that you will take measures to reinforce your presence. What have you decided about Romania? Do you consider having naval exercises for example at the Black Sea? Thank you.Anders Fogh Rasmussen: This is not about specific countries. This is about the Alliance as such. I mentioned that we are prepared to update and review our defence plans and develop new defence plans as required.But as you also know, we don’t as a matter of principle, we don’t comment on concrete defence plans.
Moderator: Dutch Media.-Question: The Netherlands offered fighter jets and possibly a marine ship. Is that enough? Does NATO have enough material to deploy? Anders Fogh Rasmussen: Yes, indeed, we do have the necessary capacity to implement these measures that have been recommended by our military authorities. We already know that some Allies will come forward with concrete contributions and I’m sure that more will follow.
Moderator: Bloomberg.Question: Jim Neuger, from Bloomberg. You opened by mentioning the Geneva talks tomorrow in the pursuit of a diplomatic settlement. Was this the reason why NATO didn’t go further in its measures today? Was there any concern about perhaps appearing to provoke Russia on the eve of Geneva? Anders Fogh Rasmussen: We have… we have now taken steps, military steps that we think at this stage are necessary to ensure effective collective defence and deterrence.. But having said that, we do hope that the Geneva talks will pave the way for a peaceful and political solution to the crisis.Moderator: Thank you very much indeed.
15 Apr. 2014-NATO Secretary General says Ukraine crisis amplifies need to boost defence cooperation-NATO
NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Tuesday (15 April 2014) that the Ukraine crisis has amplified the need to strengthen cooperation between NATO, the European Union and with close partners. “We need to train and exercise more together, for instance the NATO Response Force and the EU Battlegroups, so that we stand ready for whatever the future may bring,” the Secretary General said arriving for EU Defence Ministers talks in Luxembourg.The Secretary General discussed the crisis in Ukraine with the EU defence ministers. He expressed his deep concern over the continued violence by small groups of separatists and Russia’s continued military pressure on Ukraine’s border. “I call on Russia to de-escalate the crisis, to pull back its troops from Ukraine’s borders, to stop de-stabilizing the situation in Ukraine, and make clear that it doesn’t support the violent actions of pro-Russian separatists,” he said. “Russia should stop being part of the problem, and start being part of the solution.”The EU ministers were informed by Mr. Fogh Rasmussen about what measures NATO has already taken and will take to further strengthen collective defence at sea, in the air and on land. “These measures will follow three tracks; re-enforced defence plans, enhanced exercises and appropriate deployments,” he said. The Secretary General also held talks with Prime Minister Xavier Bettel of Luxembourg and Mr. Marc Angel, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee of the Luxembourg Parliament, while in the Grand Duchy.In talks with Prime Minister Xavier Bettel of Luxembourg, the Secretary General thanked the Prime Minister for his country’s strong commitment to the Alliance, noting contributions to missions in Kosovo and Afghanistan and vital funding to support the Afghan Security Forces. He also commended Luxembourg’s support to projects to develop military capabilities. “As we prepare for our Wales Summit in September, we have to ensure that we continue to invest in our security,” said Mr. Fogh Rasmussen. “Every Ally has a part to play in this effort. NATO keeps us all secure and we must all continue investing to keep NATO strong. Russia’s aggression against Ukraine shows that we cannot simply take our security for granted.” The Secretary General also met with Mr. Marc Angel, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee of the Luxembourg Parliament and members of the Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee for a wide-ranging discussion on the Ukraine crisis and the agenda of the Wales Summit in September.
Journalists face violence, intimidation and psychological warfare in conflict areas in Ukraine says OSCE Representative-Odesa 16 April 2014-Newsroom
ODESA, 16 April 2014 - Ending her three-day visit to Ukraine, OSCE media freedom representative Dunja Mijatović today said that the media freedom situation in Ukraine has reached a very dangerous stage, and she alerted OSCE participating States that unless this trend is reversed it could contribute to the deterioration of the security situation."Media freedom is a reflection of the overall security situation. From my perspective the situation is alarming, with risk of further deterioration unless it is immediately improved. Violence against journalists must stop now and the rule of law needs to be restored throughout the country," Mijatović said.On 14-16 April Mijatović travelled to Kharkiv, Kyiv and Odesa to meet with journalists from these regions and from Donetsk, Mykolayiv and Crimea. She discussed journalists’ safety, banning of broadcasters and blocking of journalists from entering Ukraine with members of the media, acting Foreign Minister Andrii Deshchytsa and Deputy Interior Minister Mykola Velychkovych."Journalists are under attack, both physically and as part of the ongoing psychological warfare. Journalists in conflict areas face violence, seizure and destruction of equipment, and threats on a daily basis,” Mijatović said.“Journalists in Crimea face additional problems with media re-registration, possible eviction from the region if they are not considered loyal and do not change citizenship, vicious labelling, threats and denial of access to public information.”The journalists that met with the Representative reported that they see little or no protection from police and other law-enforcement agencies. The cases of police violence against journalists that occurred under the previous government have not yet been investigated.In the Donetsk and Kharkiv regions there have been a number of attacks against members of the media during the past few days. The attacks include the beating of Yevgen Polojii, editor of Panorama, and Mikhail Dugin of Polytavska Dumka-2000.In addition, a BBC television crew and Frederick Paxton of Vice News were threatened and had their equipment stolen or destructed. Graham Phillips, a freelance journalist for RT, Alexander Belinsky, editor of Gorlovka.ua and journalists from Hromadske TV and Lenta.ru were kidnapped and then released. The offices of Gorlovka.ua and newspaper Kriminal Ekspress were vandalized and cars belonging to Alexei Matsuka of Novosti Donbassa and to Odesa First City Channel were set on fire."I have heard alarming first-hand accounts of the attacks against journalists. The authorities must do their utmost to protect all journalists. Freedom of media and information are essential in times of crisis as a way to de-escalate the conflict,” Mijatović said.“There must be no impunity for crimes committed against media representatives. I also appeal to the journalists to have solidarity, report the truth and to stay safe."The OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media observes media developments in all 57 OSCE participating States. She provides early warning on violations of freedom of expression and media freedom and promotes full compliance with OSCE media freedom commitments.

EU parliament gives final nod to banking union
Today @ 09:21-APR 16,14-EUOBSERVER--By Valentina Pop
Berlin - MEPs on Tuesday (15 April) overwhelmingly approved the creation of a new authority and fund for failing banks – a missing element to the so-called banking union aimed at minimising the public cost of future financial crises.The final vote on the creation of a €55 billion fund financed by the banks themselves passed with 570 MEPs in favour, 88 against and 13 abstentions, while new rules in cases where public money needs to be used for winding down banks also gathered a similar majority: 584 votes in favour, 80 against and 10 abstentions.One key concession won by MEPs from governments during final negotiations was a speedier mutualisation of the fund, which will comprise of domestic bank levies paid into "national compartments". Forty percent of the fund is to be mutualised in the first year, 20 per cent in the second year, the rest equally over a further six years.There will also be an obligation for EU countries to guarantee up to €100,000 in any savings account, but there is no common backstop in case they fall short.Commenting on the vote, EU financial markets commissioner Michel Barnier said: "We now have in place a true European system to supervise the eurozone banks and deal with any future failures."A first element of the 'banking union' – single supervision of the 130 largest eurozone banks – is to become operational in November within the European Central Bank.The resolution mechanism will be independent, but take advice from the ECB as to when to step in to help or to close down a troubled bank.The size of the fund and its gradual formation have raised concerns among critics that it is insufficient to deal with big banks if ever they get into trouble.Last week, the International Monetary Fund said EU leaders should accelerate work on the banking union and fill the gaps that are likely to be discovered by a comprehensive audit of the biggest banks' balance sheets.Meanwhile, Willem Buiter, chief economist at US Citibank, said during the IMF spring meeting in Washington that €1 trillion would be a more appropriate sum for eurozone's bank rescue fund, rather than the planned €55 billion.Green politicians are also sceptical about the use of these measures as long as banks are "too big to fail"."The banking union is not yet completed. The EU now needs to move forward as soon as possible with a view to completing the financial transaction tax and the separation of bank activities in order to deal with the problem of too-big-to-fail banks," said German Green MEP Sven Giegold.MEPs have also approved a separate scheme ensuring that banks offer affordable current accounts for everyone, as millions of people in Europe are denied access to a bank account because of their legal or social status."Guaranteeing access to basic accounts to all consumers, including to migrants and mobile citizens, will stimulate economic modernisation, facilitate free movement and help the most disadvantaged in our societies", said German leftist MEP Juergen Klute, who was leading the negotiations on this file.Member states now have two years to transpose this bill into national law.

16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.

04/16/2014 -VATICAN INSIDER-Heads of Christian Churches in Jerusalem call for peace process to continue-In this year’s Easter Message, the heads of local Christian Churches sent out an appeal for the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. Meanwhile, tensions have risen since the killing of a police chief in Hebron-Giorgio Bernardelli
Rome-“Despite the acute difficulties of the current situation, we would urge all parties to seize this moment of historic opportunity.” In their Easter Message for 2014, the heads of Jerusalem’s Churches took the opportunity to urge Israelis and Palestinians once again, not to shut the door on peace negotiations. Their words sound a lot like an urgent appeal, given the profound pessimism surrounding the peace talks that have been taking place in recent weeks, mediated by US Secretary of State, John Kerry.There is a sense of resignation in Jerusalem after talks proved inconclusive once again and this climate is causing violence to erupt: on Monday evening police Deputy Major General Baruch Mizrahi was shot dead in Hebron as he and his family were going to a seder, a Jewish Passover meal. In Israeli media the controversy is escalating in light of the discussions over the release of Palestinian prisoners. This is one of the sticking points of the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. The widow of the latest victim openly addressed Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, saying that “no terrorists can be released while new families are being hit.”This is the context in which the heads of the Christian Churches in Jerusalem – the Latin Patriarch Fouad Twal, the Greek Orthodox Patriarch Theophilus III, the Armenian Patriarch Norhan Manougian and the Custodian of the Holy Land Fr. Pierbattista Pizzaballa - made their appeal, pushing for a continuation in negotiations. In fact, they are asking parties to go beyond mere sterile discussions in order to address the injustices that are at the root of this seemingly never-ending conflict: “we would urge all parties to seize this moment of historic opportunity. A peace which does not seek to abolish discrimination between different communities is no peace at all. For peace to be real, it must embrace justice and a desire for reconciliation. Reconciliation between God and humanity, and between people who are opposed to one another, springs from the Cross and is vindicated by the Resurrection,” they write.Their message is specifically linked to the Paschal mystery, which all Christians in Jerusalem will be celebrating on the same date given that the Gregorian and Julian calendars coincide this year. “Here in the Holy City it is our tradition, our privilege and our call to share the good news about our risen Lord with the whole human family – and especially with those who are living under oppression, violence, displacement, occupation, injustice or other kinds of human suffering. We pray that the power of the Resurrection may prevail in the midst of all human agonies and that the light which shines from the Empty Tomb may inspire endurance, perseverance and hope that victory will eventually come, so that all people may enjoy the fullness of life of which the Resurrection is itself the foretaste and promise,” the heads of Churches write.This morning there was tension at the Mosque esplanade in Jerusalem, as police clashes with Palestinian protesters, leaving some injured. This is yet another indication that temperatures are rising again in the Holy City, where Francis is heading to in just one month’s time.
FALSE POPE FROM THE VATICAN
11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth;(FALSE VATICAN POPE) and he had two horns like a lamb,(JESUS IS THE LAMB OF GOD) and he spake as a dragon.(HES SATANICALLY INSPIRED,HES A CHRISTIAN DEFECTOR FROM THE FAITH)
12 And he (FALSE RELIGIOUS LEADER) exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him,(WORLD DICTATOR) and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.(THE WORLD DICTATOR CREATES A FALSE RESURRECTION AND IS CROWNED LEADER OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER).
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication,(VATICAN IN POLITICS) and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman (FALSE CHURCH) was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour,(VATICAN COLOURS)(ANOTHER REASON WE KNOW THE FALSE POPE COMES FROM THE VATICAN) and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.(THE VATICAN IS BUILT ON 7 HILLS OR MOUNTAINS)
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.(VATICAN-CATHOLICS ALL AROUND THE WORLD OVER 1 BILLION)
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast,(WORLD DICTATOR) these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
WE KNOW THE POPE WILL BE HEAVILY INVOLVED IN THE PEACE PROCESS. BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS THE EUROPEAN UNION WORLD DICTATOR AND THE FALSE VATICAN POPE WILL WORK CLOSELY TOGETHER AND POSSIBLY BE HOMOSEXUALS.THAT I DON'T KNOW FOR SURE.BUT WE KNOW THE 2 WILL BE WORKING CLOSELY TOGETHER.AND THE WORLD DICTATOR I BELIEVE IS HEAVILY INVOLVED IN THE PEACE PROCESS ALREADY IN THE BACKROUND.JUST READY TO TAKE CENTER STAGE.AND THE POPE WHEN HE GOES TO ISRAEL WILL BE TALKING WITH THE FUTURE DICTATOR IN THE TALKS.OR POSSIBLY FRANCIS AND THE FUTURE WORLD DICTATOR ARE REGULARLY CONSULTING WITH EACH OTHER ALREADY ABOUT THE PEACE TALKS.THAT MIGHT BE WHY THEY WILL WORK SO CLOSELY TOGETHER AND GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER SO WELL.AND WILL DECIEVE THE WORLD WHILE FORCING THEIR SATANIC WILL ON THE WORLD BY FALSE MIRACLES AND DECEPTION THREW TECHNOLOGY.
04/16/2014 -THE VATICAN INSIDER-Iran’s view of Francis: “A religious leader who believes in dialogue”-Iranian Christians-"Vatican Insider" interviews the Ambassador of Teheran to the Holy See: Mohammad Taher Rabbani: “His concern for the excluded transmits a sincere closeness”-ANDREA TORNIELLI
vatican city-“One of the Pope’s striking traits is the humility and love he feels for people.” This is how the Ambassador of the Islamic republic of Iran to the Holy See, Mohammad Taher Rabbani – one of the first diplomats to present his letters of credence to the new Pope last year – talks to Vatican Insider about Francis’ first year as Pope and about the forthcoming visit to the Holy Land.
Mr. Ambassador, what is your impression of the first year of Francis’ pontificate?
“Pope Francis is the first Pope from Latin America to be elected as head of the universal Church. I would like to congratulate the Holy Father and all Catholics around the world for this good choice. One of the Pope’s striking traits is the humility and love he feels for people. He grew up in a middle class family and lived among the ordinary people and this meant he was able to experience people’s pain, suffering and marginalization up close. His studies also helped a great deal in shaping his religious and political thinking. Aside from his extensive religious and theological, literary, philosophical and psychological studies, he belongs to the Society of Jesus, which looks at the acquisition of knowledge, the importance of education and the purification of the soul in a special kind of way: all this has contributed to Francis’ vision of inclusion and his deep thinking.”
What do you have to say about the new elements in Francis’ style?
“Another thing that sets this Pope apart is that despite his special position, he completely ignores all superfluous formalities that prevent him from coming into contact with people and a variety of social classes. He pays particular attention to the vulnerable and excluded, to the concept of education and the reinforcement of the institution of the family. Thanks to this attitude and his words, he transmits a sincere closeness. As the messengers said, religious leaders like Pope Francis are “soul doctors” who free people from spiritual and social problems, bringing peace to them thanks to their own spirituality and heavenly teachings.”
What is the Republic of Iran’s perception of him?
“The Islamic Republic of Iran sees the Pope as an open minded leader of deep thought and a man of great faith who wants justice, peace and a dignified life for people of all races, so that everybody may receive divine gifts. The Holy Father firmly believes in dialogue between religions and denominations.”
Last September the Pope celebrated a vigil of fasting and prayer for peace in Syria. There was a huge response across the world, and not just from Christians. What do you think of this?
“One of the positive key steps Pope Francis took, which will be remembered throughout history, was calling last year’s day of prayer and fasting for peace and an end to violence in Syria. The people of the world showed themselves to be on the same wavelength as the Pope, sharing his support for peace and friendship. People hate the massacres, violence and chaos which terrorists and takfir groups are responsible for. More than three years have gone by since the start of the devastating crisis caused by the Syrian civil war, which has claimed the lives of 140 thousand people and left numerous archaeological sites and places of worship in ruins. The suffering Syrian population has to endure displacement and the bitter consequences of uncertainty and violence. I ask myself: what have international institutions done so far to stop this violence? Is it not time for powerful countries look at the dramatic conditions in which the Syrian people are living in in the Middle East, before starting another war in the Crimean peninsula? Perhaps they are considering starting another war in the Black Sea? I hope that Francis will appeal once again to the great powers, inviting them to put an end to the violence and this pointless war in Syria.
Next month Francis will be paying a quick visit to the Holy Land (three countries – Jordan, Palestinian Territories and Israel – in three days). How important is this visit for peace and dialogue between Christians and Muslims?
“Wise Muslims and Christians have been engaged in interreligious dialogue for years. For example, the ninth round of dialogue talks between Iran and the Holy See will be taking place in Teheran this year. As the Church history has shown in recent decades, every Pope since John Paul II in 2000, have put a visit to the Holy Land in their agenda. In 2009, Pope Benedict XVI paid an official visit to Middle Eastern countries and the occupied territories. A religious leader’s mission makes it essential for them to listen to the voice of the people up close and be aware of their pain and suffering. The aim of these visits is to promote and bring peace and serenity to the Middle East. So these kinds of commitments are in themselves positive, as long as authorities and regional heads of State do not try to use these visits and the Pope and Holy See’s position for their own interests, to make their own dubious actions seem legitimate. If it is political advantages that are sought from these visits, they will do the people no good and neither will they help bring true peace. I would like to underline that the Islamic Republic of Iran is always willing to work with the Holy See in order to restore peace in the region, following a plan that involves the return of all Palestinians to their homeland in the occupied territories and a referendum that involves the participation of all Palestinians, be they Muslim, Christian or Jewish, to decide on their future system of government.”
What can you say about the relations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Holy See? Why is it important for your country to maintain diplomatic relations with the Vatican and why, in your opinion, is it important for the Vatican to maintain diplomatic relations with your country?
“The Holy See has played an important role in Iranian foreign policy for a long time. Bilateral relations go back a long way and are based on common religious values as well as political considerations. The Holy See and the Islamic Republic of Iran are two religious systems that are both inspired on the spiritual teachings of monotheistic religions. It is upon this basis that they are able to lay the foundations for cooperation and give impetus to bilateral relations. The Holy See’s position with regard to Iran has been relatively balanced compared to that of Western countries. In fact, in some cases it has been in line with certain essential positions our country has upheld. The main factors affecting the Holy See’s foreign policy towards Iran are the following: The moderation and tolerance the Islamic Republic of Iran has shown towards religious minorities, particularly Christians; the benefits of Iran’s influence in the region for the maintenance of regional stability and security, protecting Christian rights; Pope Francis’ commitment to peace is in tune with Iran’s new diplomatic path, that is, strengthening world alliances against violence and extremism; Islam and Christianity have become closer thanks to improved dialogue with Shiite Islam: one of the Islamic world’s most important denominations.”
What role can the Pope and Holy See diplomacy play today in promoting peace?
“The way the Holy See’s is organized, with its focus on the government of the universal Catholic Church, which has more than a billion followers all over the world, means it has a huge role to play in social and spiritual terms, in influencing public opinion across the world. The Holy See has diplomatic relations with more than 181 countries and is present in 33 international and regional organizations. As a result, the Holy See has significant political and diplomatic influence in the international community and especially in countries with Christian majorities. As leader of the universal Catholic Church, the Pope exercises a huge spiritual influence over people and thanks to this powerful international influence, he has the power to bring about significant changes and transformations. Peace and justice are central to his message. He tries to use all the potential and influence that lie within Churches, places of worship and influential religious and political figures, to bring peace to the world and overcome destitution, poverty and the devastation this brings to Christian communities. I hope that in this moment of crisis and social and political upheaval that parts of the world like the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and the Black Sea region are going through, the Pope will continue to play a central role, as he has done in the Syrian crisis.”
Juncker wants politicians not bureaucrats in new EU executive
By Christian Spillmann 5 hours ago-APR 16,14-YahooNews
Strasbourg (France) (AFP) - Jean-Claude Juncker, a front-runner in the race to become president of the European Commission, told AFP he was ready to fight to have politicians rather than bureaucrats on his team.And to revive the European Union, it will be vital to get France and Germany back on the same page after May's European elections, the long-time former Luxembourg premier said in an interview.The EU faces a crisis of confidence, he said, after the debt crisis and economic slump, with many Europeans sorely disillusioned by the tough austerity measures adopted to solve economic problems across the 28-nation bloc.The 59-year-old, who as head of the eurozone finance ministers' group steered the single currency through the crisis, has been nominated by the largest group in the European Parliament, the European People's Party (EPP), as its candidate to be the next president of the Commission, the EU's executive."You'd have to be deaf and blind not to realise that the EU and the Commission are viewed with increasing suspicion," said Juncker, a life-long supporter of the European project as the only answer to centuries of war and upheaval on the continent.The best way to reverse the eurosceptic tide, Juncker said, was to put the stress on the political role of the Commission, making it more responsive to popular concerns.Accordingly, the 28 individual commissioners -- the equivalent of national ministers -- needed to be high-profile national and European politicians, which is currently mostly not the case, some of them never having been elected to office."The head of the Commission has the right to demand that from member states," said Juncker, who as Luxembourg's premier for 19 years was Europe's longest serving leader until he lost power after an election last year.Rather than civil servants, commissioners should be "politicians who know how to take on their responsibilities," he said, adding that he reserved the right to reject candidates who do not fit his profile.The appointment of the commissioners -- one for each member state -- up until now has involved lengthy horse-trading over portfolios between national governments.Their role is to implement and drive policies agreed by EU leaders, with the Commission also making proposals on several key areas of policy.It is also responsible for the day-to-day running of the EU.
- Franco-German entente vital -
The European Commission president too was hand-picked by EU nations up until now. But under new rules, leaders are supposed to choose the next head of the Commission after taking into account the results of May 25 elections for the European Parliament.With France and Germany not completely seeing eye-to-eye in recent months, Juncker said it was essential to rev up the Franco-German engine at the heart of the EU."France and Germany are destined to have to get along," said Juncker. "Franco-German entente is essential if Europe is to advance but this entente is not strong enough now to allow that."Juncker said that when Frenchman Jacques Delors headed the Commission in 1985-94, it was not always smooth sailing between Paris and Berlin and there were often "serious difficulties."But then French president Francois Mitterrand and German chancellor Helmut Kohl would work with Delors to find a way around them, he said.Luxembourg understood well the position of the two countries which for so long have led the EU forward, he said."People in Luxembourg learn French and German because no one else wants to learn the local language," he said with his trademark dry humour. "That means we can understand two parties who often find it difficult to understand each other."As for his main opponent, Socialist Martin Schulz who heads the European Parliament, Juncker downplayed the differences."I do not think that campaigning consists of saying bad things about your adversary or of pointing out differences when there aren't any."We are on the same lines. We both seek budget discipline and support for economic growth," he said. "They are the two sides of the same coin."
Hundreds still missing in deadly Korea ferry sinking
By Narae Kim 1 hour ago-APR 16,14-YAHOONEWS
JINDO, South Korea (Reuters) - South Korean coastguard and navy divers resumed searching on Thursday for about 290 people still missing, many of them students from the same high school, after a ferry capsized in sight of land.Grieving family members gathered on the quay of the coastal city of Jindo, huddled in blankets against the spring cold as efforts to locate the missing went into a second day.One parent, Park Yung-suk, told Reuters she had seen the body of her teenage daughter's teacher brought ashore earlier in the morning."If I could teach myself to dive, I would jump in the water and try to find my daughter," Park said as light rain fell.Of some 450 passengers on board the ferry when it set sail from the port of Incheon late on Tuesday, nearly 340 were teenagers and teachers from the Danwon school near the capital Seoul on a field trip to Jeju island, about 100 km (60 miles) south of the Korean peninsula.So far 179 people have been rescued and six confirmed dead in what could be the country's worst maritime accident in 20 years.As coastguard officials arrived at Jindo on Thursday, waiting relatives jeered at them, shouting: "The weather's nice, why aren't you starting the rescue."It is not known why the 6,586 metric ton vessel, built in Japan 20 years ago, sank.As frustration grew with the lack of information, some parents of missing school children hired their own boat on Wednesday night. They appeared to blame the government of President Park Geun-hye and rescue officials for not making a big enough effort."Since the government refused to take us to the scene 11 parents chipped in 61,000 won ($58.79) each to hire a boat and took a reporter and a diver. But there was no rescue operation going on," said one father who declined to give his name."I am extremely angry. Media is saying the rescue op is still going on. It's all a lie," he said.
It was not immediately clear why the Sewol ferry had listed heavily on to its side in apparently calm waters off South Korea's southwest coast, but some survivors spoke of a loud noise prior to the disaster.A member of the crew of a local government ship involved in the rescue, who said he had spoken to members of the sunken ferry's crew, described the area as free of reefs or rocks and said the cause was likely to be some sort of malfunction on the vessel.There were reports of the ferry having veered off course, but coordinates of the site of the accident provided by port authorities indicated it was not far off the regular shipping lane.The ferry sent a distress signal early on Wednesday, the coastguard said, triggering a rescue operation that involved almost 100 coastguard and navy vessels and fishing boats, as well as 18 helicopters.According to a coastguard official in Jindo, the waters where the ferry capsized have some of the strongest tides off South Korea's coast, meaning divers were prevented from entering the mostly submerged ship for several hours.The ship has a capacity of about 900 people and an overall length of 146 meters (480 feet). Shipping records show it was built in Japan in 1994.According to public shipping databases, the registered owner of the ship is Chonghaejin Marine Co Ltd, based in Incheon. Reuters was unable to reach the company by phone.Earlier, company officials offered an apology over the accident but declined to comment further.The databases showed that Chonghaejin Marine Co Ltd became the owner of the vessel in October, 2012.

Ocean floor search for missing Malaysia plane cut short again
By Byron Kaye - APR 16,14-YahooNews
PERTH, Australia (Reuters) - The search for a Malaysia Airlines jetliner deep in the Indian Ocean was again cut short on Wednesday when technical problems forced a U.S. Navy underwater drone to surface without finding anything, officials said.While a massive air and sea search for missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 is continuing almost 2,000 km (1,200 miles) off the coast of Perth, hopes have been pinned on the Bluefin- 21 autonomous underwater vehicle finding the first concrete sign of the plane in more than six weeks of hunting.Malaysian authorities have still not ruled out mechanical problems as causing the Boeing 777's disappearance, but say evidence suggests it was deliberately diverted from its scheduled route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.An aircraft's black box records data from the cockpit and conversations among flight crew and may provide answers about what happened to the missing plane.A unspecified technical problem meant the Bluefin resurfaced early on Wednesday and analysis of the sonar data downloaded showed no significant detections, the Australian agency leading the search said.It has subsequently been relaunched to continue its search.The drone was forced to end its first deployment early on Monday after it exceeded its 4.5 km (14,750 feet) depth limit in the remote stretch of ocean where search authorities believe the jetliner crashed after its disappearance on March 8 with 239 people on board.The introduction of the Bluefin marks a methodical, slower paced new phase of the search, now in its 40th day and described by the search coordinator, retired Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, as the most expensive in aviation history.U.S. Naval personnel have said the drone could take up to two months to scour a 600 sq km area where the plane is believed to have sunk.The deep sea area now being searched, the Zenith Plateau, has never been mapped in detail because it is not in any country's economic zone.However the sea floor is likely covered in "foraminiferal ooze", a sludge formed by microscopic marine organisms, which would show up any large metallic object clearly, James Cook University marine geologist Robin Beaman told Reuters."A sidescan is very good at detecting the difference in the acoustic return of a hard object versus a soft, muddy sea floor," he said. "This is quite a good environment for looking for wreck debris, albeit deep."An air and sea search for floating debris continued on Wednesday, but Houston has indicated that will soon end.Up to 11 military aircraft, three civil aircraft and 11 ships would help in Wednesday's search, covering a total area of about 55,151 square km in rainy conditions.Authorities have targeted the remote stretch of ocean based on four acoustic signals they believe are from the plane's black box recorders.But they have not heard a "ping" for a week and with the batteries on the locator beacons now 10 days past their 30-day expected life, authorities have decided to stop searching using a Towed Pinger Locator and to use the Bluefin instead.(Additional reporting by Lincoln Feast in SYDNEY; Editing by)
Sub makes 2nd dive to search for Malaysian plane
By MARGIE MASON - APR 16,14-YahooNews
PERTH, Australia (AP) — As a robotic submarine dived into the ocean to look for lost Flight 370, angry Chinese relatives stormed out of a teleconference meeting Wednesday to protest the Malaysian government for not addressing them in person.The Bluefin 21 sub surfaced early for the second time in as many missions, this time after experiencing technical difficulties. It was sent back into the water after its data were downloaded but there's been no sign of the plane, according to the search coordinator.As the search continued, more than 100 relatives of Chinese passengers on the plane walked out of a teleconference meeting with senior Malaysian officials, an act of defiance over a lack of contact with that country's government and for taking so long to respond to their demands.The family members had gathered in a meeting room at a Beijing hotel where Malaysia Airlines had provided lodging and food. But they stood and filed out shortly before the call with Malaysia's civil aviation chief, Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, and others as it was about to start."These video conference meetings often don't work, the sound stops and it's constantly disrupted. Is that how we are going to communicate?" said Jiang Hui, one of the family members, after the walkout. "Do they need to waste our time in such a way?"Jiang said the Malaysian government had not met demands the relatives had presented to them weeks ago in Malaysia — an apology for the way they've handled the matter along with meetings with the Malaysian government and airline officials. They also have requested to sit down with executives from Boeing and Rolls-Royce, the manufacturer of the plane and its engines.The Boeing 777 vanished March 8 with 239 people on board while en route from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Beijing. Radar and satellite data show it flew far off-course for an unknown reason and would have run out of fuel over the southern Indian Ocean west of Australia.A ship-towed device detected four signals underwater that are believed to have come from the airliner's black boxes shortly before the beacons' batteries died. The sounds helped narrow the search area to the waters where the Bluefin 21 is now operating.The U.S. Navy's unmanned sub cut short its first mission on Monday because it exceeded its maximum operating depth of 4,500 meters (15,000 feet). Searchers moved it away from the deepest waters before redeploying the sub to scan the seabed with sonar to map a potential debris field.On the ocean surface, up to 14 planes and 11 ships were searching a 62,000-square-kilometer (24,000-square-mile) patch of sea about 2,200 kilometers (1,400 miles) northwest of Perth on Wednesday. The surface search is expected to end soon as not a single piece of debris connected to the plane has been found.Investigators are also waiting on test results from an oil slick found about 5,500 meters (3.4 miles) from where the underwater sounds were detected.In addition to finding the plane itself, investigators want to recover the black boxes in hopes the cockpit voice and flight data recorders contain answers to why the plane lost communications and flew so far off-course before disappearing.___Associated Press writers Kristen Gelineau in Sydney, Rod McGuirk in Canberra, Australia and videojournalist Aritz Parra in Beijing, contributed to this report. ___Follow Margie Mason on Twitter at twitter.com/MargieMasonAP

Jerusalem (AFP) - Dozens of Palestinians were wounded in clashes with Israeli police that erupted Wednesday when Jerusalem's flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound was opened to Jewish visitors, an AFP correspondent said.Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told AFP that Palestinians threw "stones and firecrackers" at police when they opened the walled compound's gates.Police responded with stun grenades, Rosenfeld said, and closed the complex to the Jewish visitors after a small number had toured the site.An AFP correspondent at the scene said dozens of Palestinians were wounded by rubber-coated bullets and stun grenade canisters, and were staying inside the Al-Aqsa mosque out of fear they would be arrested when leaving.The compound, in Jerusalem's Old City, is revered as the location of the biblical Jewish temples and is considered Judaism's holiest place.It also houses the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa mosque, the third holiest site in Islam.Rosenfeld said the situation on "Temple Mount," the Jewish term for the complex, was "calm again" and police had left the site.He noted that in a separate incident elsewhere in Jerusalem's Old City a police officer was lightly wounded by stones thrown by Palestinians.Non-Muslim visits to the Al-Aqsa complex are permitted and regulated by police, but Jews are not allowed to pray at the site.Jews are marking Passover, a seven-day holiday which in ancient times was marked by mass pilgrimage to the Temple Mount.On Monday, police arrested five Jews suspected of intending to sacrifice a goat at the Al-Aqsa mosque complex, in a bid to reenact an ancient Passover ritual.Jewish fringe groups have vowed to build a third Temple, but Israeli political and religious authorities have repeatedly dismissed the idea.
Wounded 9-Year-Old 'Lucky to be Alive' After Terror Attack-Almog Mizrahi was injured in the terror ambush that killed a police officer. 'We will get over it,' says his mother.-By Oranit Etzer-First Publish: 4/16/2014, 2:33 PM-IsraelNationalNews
Among those wounded in the terror shooting near Hevron Friday was a nine-year-old boy, Almog Mizrahi of Beit Shemesh. While sharing the same last name with Baruch Mizrahi of Modiin, the police officer who was killed, Almog was in a separate car with his mother and his sister, Lotam.He was released from hospital Wednesday morning, after an operation in which the bullet that struck him was removed from his chest. “I am very lucky that it didn't hit my heart,” he told Channel 2 television. “I feel great now. It's a good thing the bullet stopped where it did.”"I feel that I have been saved on this holiday,” he added.Almog's mother, Vardit, recalled: “Suddenly I heard gunfire, and I felt ricochets, and despite the panic we kept on driving. The boy said to me, 'I'm starting to bleed,' and then I stopped the vehicle to see what happened, and again there was a burst of bullets.”She stopped the car next to a military position, where an IDF medic and emergency services met the family. Lotam is still suffering from anxiety, she said, “but we will get over it. Almog got his life as a present.”Hadassah Mizrahi, whose husband Baruch was killed in the attack and who was wounded herself, told IDF Radio that she tried not to let her children, who were in the car, see their father's wounds, “but they saw it, and my children said: 'Daddy, what happened? Wake up! Wake up! Daddy, why aren't you moving?'”
Israelis, Palestinians seeking to extend peace talks: US
Washington (AFP) - Israeli and Palestinian negotiators are hammering out a way to extend their faltering peace talks beyond an April 29 deadline, a US official said Tuesday, refuting calls from a leading daily to call it quits.More talks between the two sides will be held on Wednesday, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, although it was not immediately clear if US lead negotiator Martin Indyk would take part."The parties are working right now on an agreement to extend the negotiations, and that means extending the negotiations past April 29," Psaki told reporters."There are naturally a range of issues being discussed. There are steps that both parties would need to take in order to improve the conditions for peace but the parties remain highly engaged," she said.The peace talks, which were kickstarted by US Secretary of State John Kerry in July after a three-year hiatus, hit a major crisis this month when both sides took what Washington has called unhelpful steps.The Palestinians launched moves to join 15 UN treaties and bodies, while Israel refused to release the last tranche of Palestinian prisoners and unveiled plans for 700 more settler homes in east Jerusalem."Both parties tell us they want negotiations to continue and they're searching for a path to do just that," Psaki told reporters.She dismissed a call from the editorial board of The New York Times, which headlined an opinion piece late Monday "In the Middle East, Time to Move on" and argued that neither side had shown they were serious about making peace."It is time for the administration to lay down the principles it believes must undergird a two-state solution, should Israelis and Palestinians ever decide to make peace," the respected daily wrote."Then President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry should move on and devote their attention to other major international challenges like Ukraine."Psaki said she had read the editorial but did not agree with the notion."Neither do the negotiators. Neither do the parties. Neither does the secretary," she said."The Israeli and the Palestinian people deserve a two-state solution where parties are living side by side and they have the economic opportunity and the security that they deserve," Psaki added."And that's why the parties remain committed and why they're working so hard on extending negotiations."

More than 300 people missing after South Korean ferry sinks: coastguard
By Narae Kim - APR 16,14-YahooNews
JINDO, South Korea (Reuters) - Almost 300 people were missing after a ferry sank off South Korea on Wednesday, the coastguard said, in what could be the country's biggest peacetime disaster in nearly 20 years.The ferry was carrying 459 people, of whom 164 were rescued, coastguard officials said. Two people were confirmed dead after the ferry listed heavily onto its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions off South Korea's southwest coast.The Ministry of Security and Public Administration had earlier reported that 368 people had been rescued and that about 100 were missing.But it later described those figures as a miscalculation, turning what had first appeared to be a largely successful rescue operation into potentially a major disaster.The cause of the disaster was not immediately clear although some survivors reported that the ship appeared to have been involved in some sort of impact."It was fine then the ship went 'boom' and there was a noise of cargo falling," said Cha Eun-ok, who said she was on deck of the ferry taking photographs when the disaster began."The on-board announcement told people to stay put ... people who stayed are trapped," she said in Jindo, the nearest town from the scene of the accident.There was confusion about the total number of passengers on board, as authorities revised the figure down from 477 saying some had been double counted, amid growing frustration and anger among families of the passengers.Many of the passengers were children and their teachers from a high school in Seoul on a field trip to Jeju island, about 100 km (60 miles) south of the Korean peninsula.As well the passengers, there were 150 vehicles on board the ferry Sewol, officials said. Witnesses said many people were likely still inside the vessel.An official from the Danwon High School in Ansan, a Seoul suburb, had earlier said all of its 338 students and teachers had been rescued but that could not be confirmed by the coastguard or other officials involved in the rescue.The school official asked not to be identified.
The ferry began to list badly about 20 km (12 miles) off the southwest coast as it headed for Jeju.A member of the crew of a government ship involved in the rescue, who said he had spoken to members of the sunken ferry's crew, said the area was free of reefs or rocks and the cause was likely some sort of malfunction on the vessel.There were reports of the ferry having veered off its course but coordinates of the site of the accident provided by port authorities indicated it was not far off the regular shipping lane.Several survivors spoke of hearing a "loud impact" before the ship started listing and rolling on its side.Within a couple of hours, the Sewol lying on its port side. Soon after, the ship had completely turned over, with only the forward part of its white and blue hull showing above the water.Coastguard vessels and fishing boats scrambled to the rescue with television footage showing rescuers pulling passengers in life vests out of the water as their boats bobbed beside the ferry's hull.Other passengers were winched to safety by helicopters.The ferry left from the port of Incheon, about 30 km (20 miles) west of Seoul, late on Tuesday.It sent a distress signal early on Wednesday, the coastguard said, triggering a rescue that involved almost 100 coastguard and navy vessels and fishing boats, as well as 18 helicopters.A U.S. navy ship was at the scene to help, the U.S. Seventh Fleet said, adding it was ready to offer more assistance.The area of the accident was clear of fog, unlike further north up the coast which had been shrouded in heavy fog that led to the cancellation of many ferry services.The coastguard said one person had been found dead inside the sinking ferry. An official from the Mokpo Hankook hospital on the mainland said another person had died soon after arriving at its emergency ward. That person was later identified as one of the students on the school trip.Television and still pictures showed the stricken ferry surrounded by debris, rescue ships, and inflatable lifeboats.The ship has a capacity of about 900 people, an overall length of 146 meters (480 feet) and it weighs 6,586 gross metric tons (1 metric ton = 1.1023 tons). Shipping records show it was built in Japan in 1994.(Additional reporting by Ju-Min Park, Choonsik Yoo, Meeyoung Cho and Seoul bureau, writing by Jack Kim; Editing by Paul Tait, Mark Bendeich and Robert Birsel)

Jordanian warplanes destroy vehicles trying to cross from Syria: spokesman
AMMAN (Reuters) - Jordanian warplanes hit and destroyed several vehicles trying to cross the border from Syria, a government spokesman said on Wednesday, underlining Amman's concern about incursions from areas controlled by Syrian rebels."There was an attempt to infiltrate across the border from Syria by a number of vehicles," said spokesman Mohammad al-Momani, also a cabinet minister, told Reuters.A Jordanian security source said the targets were Syrian rebels in civilian cars mounted with machine guns.It was unclear whether rebels who have dominated swathes of territory along Syria's southern border with Jordan might have been seeking refuge inside Jordan from fighting with President Bashar al-Assad's forces that has raged in the region.Momani said the kingdom was increasingly worried about infiltration from Syria. "We are worried about cases of infiltration ... and reports that talk about armed groups that are close to the border and the absence of security there."Amman has tightened already firm controls along the 370-km (230 mile) border to try to prevent Jordanian Islamist militants who have joined the rebels from crossing back into Jordan. They are seen as a domestic security threat.(Reporting by Suleiman Al-Khalidi; Editing by Mark Heinrich)

Rivals show force in eastern Ukraine before talks
By Gabriela Baczynska and Thomas Grove - APR 16,14-YahooNews
KRAMATORSK/SLAVIANSK, Ukraine (Reuters) - Ukrainian government forces and separatist pro-Russian militia staged rival shows of force in eastern Ukraine on Wednesday amid escalating rhetoric on the eve of crucial four-power talks in Geneva on the former Soviet country's future.Government troops drove seven armored personnel carriers flying the Ukrainian flag into the town of Kramatorsk after securing control of a nearby airfield from the rebels on Tuesday, prompting Russian President Vladimir Putin to warn of the risk of civil war.But just 15 km (9 miles) away, armed men in different types of combat fatigues drove six armored personnel carriers, one flying the Russian flag, into the town of Slaviansk, stopping outside the town hall, which is occupied by separatists.The armed men waved as they drove in, and some people waved back and shouted: "Well done lads!" and "Russia" Russia!"Overhead, a Ukrainian jet fighter carried out several minutes of aerobatics above the town's main square in a clear show of strength by Kiev's forces.In the industrial city of Donetsk, at least 20 armed separatists occupied the city council building, a spokeswoman for the council said.The muscle-flexing and inflamed rhetoric heightened fears of violence after Moscow-backed gunmen occupied public buildings in 10 eastern towns and cities in the last week.The Kiev government is seeking to reassert control slowly and without bloodshed before Thursday's Geneva meeting at which the Russian and Ukrainian foreign ministers are due to meet for the first time in the presence of the United States and the European Union.Russia, which has refused to recognize Ukraine's pro-Western government since Moscow-backed President Viktor Yanukovich was ousted by mass protests in February, sought to dramatize instability in its neighbor ahead of those talks.
BRINK OF CIVIL WAR
Putin told German Chancellor Angela Merkel in a telephone call late on Tuesday that Kiev had "embarked on an anti-constitutional course" by using the army against the rebels."The sharp escalation of the conflict puts the country, in effect, on the brink of civil war," a Kremlin statement quoted him as saying.Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk reacted by accusing Moscow of "exporting terrorism to Ukraine".Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, speaking in Vietnam before heading to Geneva, said Kiev should listen to what he called the voice of the people of Ukraine and avoid force."It is unacceptable to use (the armed) forces in the eastern Ukraine," he told reporters in Hanoi.The Ukrainian government launched what it called a "special operation" on Tuesday against separatist militia in the Russian-speaking East, although aside from a landing by airborne troops the action was limited and avoided casualties.Soldiers disembarked from two helicopters at the airfield 10 km (6 miles) from Kramatorsk, where reporters heard gunfire that seemed to prevent an air force plane from landing.There was no sign of violence in the area on Wednesday, but civilians watching the armored vehicles enter the town reflected the sharp political divisions in the mainly Russian-speaking southeastern Donbass region.A group of about 30 local residents blocked the APCs briefly and tried to prevent them going through, a Reuters witness said. Soldiers dismounted and pushed them away. One shot was fired in the air in a brief scuffle before the vehicles moved on.The protesters managed to take away one hand-held radio and two rifle magazines from soldiers."I think Donbass should be an independent country allied with Russia," said a local resident who gave his name as Olexander. "My homeland is the Soviet Union. We just need to chop off the rotten west of Ukraine and we'll be fine."
Elsewhere in Kramatorsk, there was no overt sign of hostility as several hundred people milled around another cluster of six APCs from the 25th paratroop brigade from Dnieperpetrovsk. Some residents gave the soldiers tea and bread.But one man, who gave his name as Sergei, said the troops were unwelcome, contrasting the use of the army with the authorities' tolerance of a protest camp on the central Maidan square in the capital."I don't like these troops. As far as Kiev is concerned, we are not people," he said. "For some reason they didn't send tanks onto the Maidan (Independence Square in Kiev) but they send troops to us. Donbass will not forgive this. The country does not exist any more."While troops were not deployed during the protests that ousted Yanukovich in Kiev, police snipers shot dead dozens of protesters.The United States and the EU have accused Moscow of orchestrating the separatist operation in eastern Ukraine as it did in the Ukrainian Black Sea province of Crimea before annexing the region last month.Russia, which Western governments says has massed about 40,000 troops just across the border with eastern Ukraine, denies the charge. The Kremlin is demanding that Kiev accept a loose federal structure for Ukraine.On Thursday, acting Ukrainian President Oleksander Turchinov declared a much-needed victory over pro-Russian rebels by saying the Kramatorsk air base had been "liberated". But the government made no immediate attempt to dislodge separatist gunmen elsewhere.Ukraine's state security service said an "anti-terrorist" operation was also in progress against separatists in the nearby town of Slaviansk but there was no immediate evidence of action.Nonetheless, Kiev's stated resolve to challenge militants it says are orchestrated by the Kremlin, marked an escalation of the deepest East-West crisis since the Cold War.The standoff has raised fears in the West and in Kiev that Russia might intervene militarily to "protect" Russian speakers in eastern Ukraine,A spokesman for U.S. President Barack Obama said Ukraine's government was obliged to respond to "provocations" in the east, but Washington was not considering sending arms to Kiev.The White House said it was seriously considering adding to sanctions imposed after the annexation of Crimea, but the State Department said such action was unlikely before the Geneva meeting.(Additional reporting by Christian Lowe in Moscow, Richard Balmforth in Kiev and Nguyen Phuong Linh in Hanoi; Writing by Paul Taylor; Editing by Will Waterman and Giles Elgood)
NATO ups military presence amid Russian threat
By JUERGEN BAETZ and JOHN-THOR DAHLBURG - APR 16,14-YahooNews
BRUSSELS (AP) — NATO is strengthening its military footprint along its eastern border immediately in response to Russia's aggression in Ukraine, the alliance's chief said Wednesday.Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said NATO's air policing aircraft will fly more sorties over the Baltic region and allied ships will deploy to the Baltic Sea, the eastern Mediterranean and elsewhere if needed."We will have more planes in the air, mores ships on the water and more readiness on the land," Fogh Rasmussen told reporters in Brussels, declining to give exact troop figures.Moscow must make clear "it doesn't support the violent actions of well-armed militias or pro-Russian separatists" in eastern Ukraine, he added.NATO's eastern members — including Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia and Poland — have been wary following Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula, demanding a more robust military deterrence to counter neighboring Russia.He said the NATO deployments are about "deterrence and de-escalation" in the face of Russia's aggressive behavior.The NATO chief did not mention naval deployments to the Black Sea — which Russia would likely see as a direct aggression even though NATO members Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey also border the sea. He insisted, however, that "more will follow if needed."NATO estimates Russia has amassed some 40,000 troops on Ukraine's eastern border and could invade parts of the country within days if it wished. Fogh Rasmussen urged Russia to pull those troops back.The 28-nation alliance has already suspended most cooperation and talks with Russia. The United States has dispatched fighter planes to Poland and the Baltics, enabling NATO to reinforce air patrols on its eastern border. NATO also performs daily AWACs surveillance flights over Poland and Romania.

Russian economy hit by Ukraine turmoil
By LAURA MILLS - APR 16,14-YahooNews
MOSCOW (AP) — Russia's economy slowed sharply in the first three months of the year as uncertainty over the crisis in Ukraine spooked investors into pulling money out of the country, a government minister said Wednesday.Economy Minister Alexei Ulyukayev told parliament that growth was only 0.8 percent in the first quarter — far short of the ministry's earlier prediction of 2.5 percent — because of "the acute international situation of the past two months" as well as "serious capital flight."Russian markets have been rattled by tensions between Moscow and neighboring Ukraine, where Russia annexed the Black Sea region of Crimea last month. The main stock index in Moscow tanked 10 percent in March, wiping out billions in market capitalization. In the first three months of 2014, the ruble lost 9 percent against the dollar, making imports more expensive, while spooked investors pulled about $70 billion out of the country — more than in all of 2013.Among investors' chief concerns are that the U.S. and European Union might escalate their sanctions against Russia to affect trade, particularly in the valuable energy market. Europe is Russia's largest trading partner. It buys more than three-quarters of Russia's crude oil and natural gas exports, which fund about half the government budget.So far, the U.S. and the EU sanctions have been limited to individual Russian politicians and businessmen close to the Kremlin. But the possibility of tougher sanctions has been enough to hinder investment, which dropped 4.8 percent in the first quarter, according to Ulyukayev.The Ukrainian crisis is coming at a bad time for the Russian economy, which faces fundamental problems, the World Bank said in March. The growth rate in 2013 was the lowest in 13 years after a slump in 2009 caused by the global financial crisis.The World Bank predicted the economy could shrink by a dramatic 1.8 percent this year if instability over Ukraine continues and Russia is hit with more Western sanctions.Tensions have only increased in April, as NATO accused Russia of amassing troops on its border for a possible invasion of Ukraine and the authorities in Kiev say Russia is backing armed militants in the country's east, where pro-Russian activists have seized government buildings and police stations.

Yemen's al Qaeda leader vows to attack America in new video
By Yara Bayoumy -APR 16,14-YahooNews
DUBAI (Reuters) - The leader of Al Qaeda's wing in Yemen has vowed to attack the United States, in a video apparently showing a gathering of the group celebrating a mass jailbreak of fighters.In February, attackers mounted a bomb, grenade and gun assault on the main prison in Sanaa in which 29 inmates, including 19 jailed for terrorism-related crimes, escaped.The 15-minute video, dated March 2014 and posted on a website used by Islamists, shows masked men waving al Qaeda's black flag and celebrating the arrival of the freed prisoners.Its authenticity could not be independently verified."The Crusader enemy, dear brothers, still possesses cards which he moves around. We have to remember that we are always fighting the biggest enemy," says a man speaking in the open in a mountainous area, whom the video identifies as its leader Nasser al-Wuhaishi."We have to remove the cross, (and) the bearer of the cross, America," said Wuhaishi, who appeared with his face uncovered, wearing a T-shirt and sporting the dagger common among Yemeni men.The video, entitled "Images from the reception of the freed prisoners from Sanaa's central prison", included testimony from fighters involved in the jailbreak."We planned that we would need 10 hand grenades," said a man identified as Munir al-Bouni.Another man said: "Once you got out, you turned right and the guys were waiting."
DRINKING JUICE AND SINGING SONGS
The video showed men arriving in white pickup trucks and others greeting Wuhaishi. Others carried rifles, and some sat on the ground drinking juice. Some spoke or sang through microphones and loudspeakers. Abdulrazzaq al-Jamal, a journalist who has interviewed members of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), said it was the largest known gathering of al Qaeda in Yemen."It included about 400 people, and these are not all the members of the group. This gathering is a confirmation that al Qaeda is gaining strength and influence," he told Reuters.Formed in 2009, AQAP has attacked military targets, tourists and diplomats in Yemen and taken over territory for long periods.U.S. drone attacks have killed several suspected AQAP figures, including Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born Islamist cleric accused of links to a plot to bomb a Detroit-bound airliner in 2009 and U.S. cargo planes in 2010."Al Qaeda will gain strength as there continues to be division and weakness in security performance," said Ali al-Sarari, political adviser to Prime Minister Mohammed Salem Basindwa."The last appearance (the video) shows that Yemen is confronting a dangerous challenge. And if the security performance continues in this manner, then Yemen will face an even bigger failure than what it has faced in the past."(Writing by Yara Bayoumy; editing by Sami Aboudi and Andrew Roche)

First Documented Use of US Anti-Tank Weapons by Syrian Rebels-Experts say footage of BGM-71 TOW anti-tank rocket used by moderate rebel groups significant, but not a game-changer.By Ari Soffer-First Publish: 4/16/2014, 2:57 PM-IsraelNationalNews
The first footage of Syrian rebels using advanced US-made anti-tank weaponry has emerged, in what some experts say represents an important, though not necessarily game-changing development.Other videos have featured the rockets in the hands of the Syrian Revolutionary Front and another rebel brigade called Awliya wa Katalib al-Shaheed Ahmed al-Abdo. Both are generally seen as moderate, although concerns have been raised over the SRF's cooperation with Al Qaeda affiliate the Nusra Front.It is unclear whether the weaponry was supplied by Washington or by a US ally such as Saudi Arabia, possibly with American approval.According to Reuters, although only a small number of uses of American-made rockets have been documented, they are becoming increasingly visible on the ground."With U.S.-made TOW anti-tank missiles now seen in the hands of three groups in the north and south of Syria, it is safe to say this is important," said Charles Lister, visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution Doha Centre and one of the first to identify the weapons.The US and other western allies have been largely hesitant to provide military aid to rebel groups, fearing that some of the weaponry could end up in the hands of Al Qaeda-linked groups - much to the frustration of rebel-backers Qatar and Saudi Arabia.Analysts have said the limited injection of US-made anti-tank weaponry, though significant, would not alter the shape of the battlefield in war-torn Syria. Regime forces recently retook the Christian town of Maaloula, and have been making gains in other areas as well.Rebels still largely control northern and eastern Syria, with the regime in control of central cities and much of the west.Both regime and rebel forces have made considerable use of foreign arms, with Assad's forces boasting ever-more advanced Russian arms and rebels using Chinese and other weapons supplied primarily by Gulf backers.
Official: Iran will not discuss missile program
By ALI AKBAR DAREINI - APR 16,14-YahooNews
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Tehran will not discuss its ballistic missiles as part of ongoing talks with world powers on a final agreement to curb the Iranian nuclear program, the country's defense minister said Wednesday.The remarks by Gen. Hossein Dehghan came as a rebuff of recent comments by U.S. State Department's nuclear negotiator, Wendy Sherman, who said Iran's ballistic capabilities should be addressed as part of a comprehensive agreement with Iran.Iran's ballistic program has also been a concern for the West since ballistic missile can be used to deliver nuclear warheads. Iran insists the missile program has no nuclear dimensions but is also adamant that its defense industry is a "red line" as a topic at the nuclear talks.The U.S. has argued that a U.N. Security Council resolution bans Iran from "undertaking any activity related to ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons."But Dehghan said Iran's missile program has "nothing to do" with the nuclear negotiations and that it has no nuclear dimensions."Iran's missiles are not up for discussion under any circumstances," he told the semiofficial Fars news agency. "Iran's missiles are only our concern ... We don't accept any intervention from anybody on this issue."Tehran has developed a series of missiles, some of which have a range 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles) — enough to reach much of the Middle East. Military commanders have described them as a strategic asset and a strong deterrent, capable of hitting U.S. bases or Israel in the event of a strike on Iran.The Pentagon released a rare public report in 2012 noting significant advances in Iran's missiles technology and acknowledging that Tehran has improved their accuracy and firing capabilities.Iran and six world powers — the five permanent members of the Security Council plus Germany — reached an interim deal in November that put limits on Iran's uranium enrichment program in return for the easing of some sanctions. Core sanctions, however, remain in place — including measures targeting Iran's oil exports, the pillar of its economy.Talks are ongoing for a final deal that would remove all possibilities that the Islamic Republic could use its capabilities to build a nuclear weapon.The talks are to continue on May 13 and the future scope of Iran's uranium enrichment program has remained the toughest issue.In a positive sign, diplomats said Tuesday that the United Nations will release a report this week certifying that Iran's ability to make a nuclear bomb has been greatly reduced because it has diluted half of its stockpile of 20-percent enriched uranium, which is only a technical step away from the 90-percent grade used to arm nuclear weapons.The move was part of Iran's commitments under the interim deal. The diplomats, who are familiar with Iran's adherence to its commitments, demanded anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the confidential International Atomic Energy Agency report, due for release Wednesday or Thursday.___Associated Press writer George Jahn in Vienna contributed to this report.
