Australia recognises west Jerusalem as capital of Israel
09:01 AM, 12.15.2018

Australia recognises west Jerusalem as capital of IsraelAustralia now recognises west Jerusalem as Israel's capital, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Saturday, but a contentious embassy shift from Tel Aviv will not occur until a peace settlement is achieved. Canberra became one of just a few governments around the world to follow US President Donald Trump's lead and recognise the contested city as Israel's capital, but Morrison also committed to recognising a future state of Palestine with east Jerusalem as its capital. "Australia now recognises west Jerusalem -- being the seat of the Knesset and many of the institutions of government -- is the capital of Israel," Morrison said in a speech in Sydney.

Family complains that Catholic priest used teen's funeral to condemn suicide
02:26 AM, 12.16.2018

Family complains that Catholic priest used teen's funeral to condemn suicideThe parents of a teenage boy who took his own life have condemned a Catholic priest who questioned whether their son would get to heaven while presiding over his funeral. The Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit expressed regret for the comments and said the Rev Don LaCuesta would not preach at funerals "for the foreseeable future". But the parents of Maison Hullibarger said they wanted the priest removed from his post for the heartbreak caused. "We wanted him to celebrate how Maison lived, not how he died," his mother, Linda Hullibarger, told The Detroit Free Press. Jeff Hullibarger added: "It was his time to tell everybody what he thought of suicide, (and) we couldn't believe what he was saying. “He was up there condemning our son, pretty much calling him a sinner. He wondered if he had repented enough to make it to heaven. He said 'suicide' upwards of six times. They said they met the priest ahead of the service at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Temperance, Michigan, on December 8, setting out what they hoped to hear in a loving homily. However, the Catholic Church has traditionally taught that suicide was an unforgiveable sin. It has only been in recent years that the stance has softened to forgive suicide in situations of extreme stress. The Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit apologised and said Mr LaCuesta would be removed from funeral duties and given extra assistance. "We share the family’s grief at such a profound loss. Our hope is always to bring comfort into situations of great pain, through funeral services centered on the love and healing power of Christ," it said in a statement. "Unfortunately, that did not happen in this case. We understand that an unbearable situation was made even more difficult, and we are sorry."

Mueller's rush to sentence Trump associates - an unusual way to treat cooperating witnesses - suggests Russia investigation is endingAmid the whirlwind of hearings, guilty pleas and sentencing memos that has been Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe in the last few weeks, an unusual pattern has emerged. One of Mueller’s biggest successes as his team investigate 2016 election meddling and possible collusion between Moscow and Donald Trump’s campaign team, has been his ability to get former associates of the president to “flip” and cooperate with him. Among the more high-profile are Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen, former White House national security advisor Michael Flynn, and former campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos.

Far-Right Israeli MPs threaten to topple Netanyahu government over West Bank violence
12:30 PM, 12.15.2018

Far-Right Israeli MPs threaten to topple Netanyahu government over West Bank violenceBenjamin Netanyahu’s coalition is looking increasingly unstable after far-Right MPs threatened to withdraw their support unless the Israeli prime minister agrees to new security measures amid a spate of violence in the occupied West Bank. In one of the bloodiest weeks in the territories this year, two Israeli soldiers were killed along with a three-day Israeli baby, who was born by emergency Caesarian after his mother was shot by Palestinian gunmen but died in hospital.  The Israeli military said it killed two Palestinian gunmen as well as an attacker who stabbed two policemen in Jerusalem. Two more Palestinians - a teenage boy and a 60-year-old man - were shot dead in the city of Ramallah. The turmoil comes as Australia announced on Saturday it will follow the US in moving its embassy to Jerusalem - but only if a peace settlement can be agreed between Israel and Palestine. A solution to the conflict appeared to be as elusive as ever violence flared in the West Bank. The attacks have left Mr Netanyahu under pressure from the Right-wing of his coalition government to take action.  Two hardline MPs from the Jewish Home party have warned the prime minister they will topple his government unless he increases security barriers on West Bank roads and passes controversial legislation to benefit settlements.  “If [Palestinians] continue to move about freely on the roads and to slaughter us like ducks, there is no justification for this government’s continuing to exist for even a single additional day,” said Bezalel Smotrich, one of the MPs.  He warned that if Mr Netanyahu did not stop Palestinians from travelling on Israeli-built roads in the West Bank “the blood of the murder victims is on his hands personally”.  Israeli forces entered Ramallah looking for the gunmen Credit: y Issam Rimawi/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images Mr Netanyahu’s coalition has only 61 seats in the 120-member parliament, meaning that the two MPs have the power to bring down the government if they carry through with their threat.  Mr Smotrich, who once demanded segregated maternity wards so Jewish women would not be alongside Arab women in Israeli hospitals, has give similar ultimatums in the past but then backed down.  Israel must have an election by November 2019 but most MPs expect Mr Netanyahu will call one in the spring rather than limp along with a one-seat majority.  It has been one of the bloodiest weeks in the West Bank this year Credit: ABBAS MOMANI/AFP/Getty Images Polls show Mr Netanyahu would win an election, despite police recommending he be charged with corruption. He denies any wrongdoing.  Around a thousand Right-wing protesters gathered outside Mr Netanyahu’s residence in Jerusalem to call for stronger measures in the West Bank. “We’re done being silent. Our blood is forfeit. We’re tired of dying,” they chanted.   Other members of the Jewish Home are agitating for a new law so the Israeli army can deport the families of Palestinian attackers from the West Bank to Gaza.  They argue that the law would deter future attackers by making them worry about their families’ fate after they are killed. Human rights groups have denounced the proposal as illegal “collective punishment”.

The famed 12th century mosque and minaret, dubbed Al-Hadba or "the hunchback," hosted Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's only public appearance as IS chief, when he declared a self-styled "caliphate" after the jihadists swept into Mosul in 2014. The structures were ravaged three years later in the final, most brutal stages of the months-long fight to rid Iraq's second city of IS.

Paris 'yellow vest' protests lose steam after Emmanuel Macron concessions
10:26 PM, 12.15.2018

Paris 'yellow vest' protests lose steam after Emmanuel Macron concessionsDefiant “yellow vest” demonstrators took to the streets of Paris and other French cities on Saturday, but the anti-government protests appeared to be losing steam after major concessions by President Emmanuel Macron and another deadly terror attack on French soil. Riot police fired tear gas and fought with protesters on the Champs Elysées and elsewhere in the capital, but these were minor incidents compared with the widespread rioting and looting that took place a week ago. More than 66,000 took part in demos across the country, half the number of a week ago, and in Paris 2,200 people participated, far fewer than the 10,000 who turned out last Saturday, according to interior ministry figures. Face-off: Police stand guard as 'Mariannes' from the feminist group Femen join the Paris protests Credit: ZAKARIA ABDELKAFI/AFP/Getty Images On Place de la République in Paris, a few hundred yellow vests congregated in rain and near-zero temperatures after being pushed out of the Opera district by riot police. They unfurled a banner with the slogan: “We want a president of the poor”, a jibe at Mr Macron who many French accuse of being a “president of the rich” who has neglected the small-town and rural voters who make up the bulk of the yellow vest movement. The former investment banker, who is facing the biggest crisis of his presidency, unveiled a series of concessions on Monday to defuse the yellow vest crisis, which takes its name from the high visibility jackets all drivers in France are legally obliged to keep in their cars. He was hoping that the package of tax and minimum wage measures for low-income workers would help bring calm to the country after more than a month of clashes and disruption. French security forces intervene as protests weakened in the face of terror threats Credit:  Anadolu His move appeased many French, with public support for the yellow vest protests dropping from more than 80 percent to around 50 percent. But many others, who say the new measures will still not enable them to make ends meet, were set on continuing the protests to try and squeeze more concessions out of the 40-year-old president. “His (Macron’s) taxes will cancel out the rise in the minimum wage,” a 49-year-old computer technician, who declined to give his name, told The Telegraph on the Place de la République. Five 'Mariannes' - the national symbol of the French Republic - confront the gendarmerie Credit: VALERY HACHE/AFP/Getty Images He said he had no intention of giving up the fight, and rejected the government’s call for calm in the wake of a terror attack this week in Strasbourg in which a gunman shot dead four people before being caught, two days later, and shot dead by police.  “That’s merely an excuse to try and keep us off the streets. The attack and this protest have nothing to do with each other,” he said. Protesters wearing yellow vests (gilets jaunes) demonstrate against rising oil prices and deteriorating economic conditions along the Champs-Elysee About 8,000 police - four times the number of demonstrators - and 14 armoured vehicles were deployed across Paris for Saturday’s demonstration, and many streets in the city centre were honeycombed with checkpoints where officers in riot gear checked bags and coats for weapons and helmets.  Police said 112 people were taken into custody in Paris.  The number of deaths linked to the protest rose to seven after Belgian police said a man accidentally crashed his car on Friday night into a truck that had stalled at a yellow vest roadblock on the Franco-Belgian border.

Obamacare to be considered by new-look  US Supreme Court after Texas judge rules it is unconstitutional
05:10 PM, 12.15.2018

Obamacare to be considered by new-look  US Supreme Court after Texas judge rules it is unconstitutionalAmerica's new-look conservative-leaning US Supreme Court looks set to rule next year whether to overturn Barack Obama's flagship Obamacare policy. The highest court in America is expected to consider Mr Obama's signature political legacy after a judge in Texas declared it unconstitutional. Donald Trump, who tipped the balance in the court with controversial appointments, called the Texas ruling "Great news for America!" and said Obamacare was an "unconstitutional disaster". In Texas, Judge Reed O'Connor delivered his 55-page ruling on the eve of the deadline for Americans to sign up for 2019 health insurance coverage under Obamacare. Republicans have long opposed the health care system, officially introduced by the Affordable Care Act in 2010. President Barack Obama at his final press conference in January 2017  Credit: AFP Mr Trump made abolishing the programme one of his main campaign pledges in 2016, but an attempt to repeal it in Congress failed last year. Judge O'Connor said changes to the law introduced by Mr Trump's overhaul of the tax system in 2017 had affected the legality of  Obamacare. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act eliminated Obamacare's so-called "individual mandate" under which people who failed to sign up and pay for health insurance were subjected to a fine. Judge O'Connor ruled that the entire Affordable Care Act should now be struck down because the individual mandate had been the "keystone" of the programme. The law will remain in place pending an appeal process which is expected to reach the Supreme Court next year. Obamacare has been considered twice by the court before, in 2012 and 2015, and opponents lost. However, this will be the first time that Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the new conservative Supreme Court justice nominated by Mr Trump this year, will have an input. Brett Kavanaugh at his Senate confirmation hearing in September Credit: AP Five judges on the nine-strong court who voted for Obamacare previously are still in place. The case in Texas was brought by the administrations of 20 Republican US states, and opposed by a host of Democrat states. Nancy Pelosi, the incoming Democrat Speaker of the House of Representatives, said the ruling "exposes the monstrous endgame of Republicans' all-out assault" on people seeking affordable healthcare. She said: "This absurd ruling will be immediately appealed. Republicans are fully responsible for this cruel decision."

Several Taliban military commanders have been killed this month by Afghan forces, backed by U.S. advisers and air power.

Inside the threatened Kurdish proto-state that holds the keys to defeating Isil
04:11 PM, 12.15.2018

Inside the threatened Kurdish proto-state that holds the keys to defeating IsilOn one end of Qamishli’s main street flies the two-starred Syrian national flag. On the other, that of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party. “One flag represents our past oppression, the other our freedom,” says Mahmoud, who owns a clothing shop which sits between the two.   Before the civil war, it would have been unthinkable for the Kurdish minority to openly pledge allegiance to anything other than the President Bashar al-Assad's Syrian Arab Republic. But seven years into Syria's interminable conflict the Kurds appear to have carved out something of a proto-state in this corner of northeastern Syria, thanks in part to their efforts to flush out Isil. While they have been crushing the Caliphate to a tiny sliver of territory - taking the last town held by the Islamist on Friday morning - their separatist ambitions have largely been overlooked. Until now. Kurdish-held northern Syria The city of Qamishli has become the centre of the Kurds’ ambitious self-administration project. While a few government buildings and statues of President Assad remain, Qamishli and the surrounding areas are now firmly under the control of the Democratic Union Party (PYD). Mahmoud is a proud supporter of the PYD, but still he declines to give his full name to the Telegraph for fear of reprisal should the regime one day return. Assad has repeatedly promised to retake every inch of Syria, including the third currently in Kurdish hands. The prospect looked more likely than at any other time in the war this week after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan ordered Turkish troops and Ankara-backed Syrian rebels to ready for an assault on Syria’s Kurds. Turkey views the PYD’s military arm, the Popular Protection Units (YPG), as a terrorist organisation because of its links to an insurgent group inside Turkey, and has watched with growing concern at Kurdish expansionism on the other side of its border. In recent years, Turkish forces have already swept into Syria pushing the YPG out of territory west of the Euphrates river. But past offensives have stopped at its banks, partly to avoid direct confrontation with US troops that back the Kurds. "Turkey has lost enough time in terms of intervening to clean the terror swamp east of the Euphrates. We don't have the patience to wait one more day," Mr Erdogan warned on Friday. Men queue up to buy bread outside a bakery on the outskirts of Qamishli Credit: Sam Tarling The Kurds, who have so far relied on the US for support in their battles against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil), have threatened to abandon the fight if they are left to fend for themselves in the face of a Turkish onslaught. But Washington has sent mixed signals on whether it would be behind them in any fight against Nato ally Turkey. “We don’t rely on any government, we just have strategic alliances,” Salih Muslim, a prominent political player in Rojava who until recently co-chaired the PYD, told the Sunday Telegraph. “The Kurds have expected a move from Turkey for a while now and will not easily back down.” Whatever they might say, it is clear is that the Kurds cannot stave off Turkish aggression alone. In the absence of a reliable ally in the US, they may soon be forced to decide whether to risk their chances, or eek out an unfavourable deal with Assad to secure long-term survival. “We have to take Assad at his word,” Khalaf Dahowd, head of the foreign committee of the Democratic Change Movement, told the Sunday Telegraph from his office in Qamishli, refering to the president's pledge to take back all Syria's territory. “If he gets the chance to take Rojava he will,” said Mr Dahowd, using the Kurdish name for the area of self-rule which covers some 15,000 square miles. A convoy of American Special Forces and Syrian Democratic Forces fighters makes a stop during a patrol near the Turkish border in northern Syria Credit:  Sam Tarling “Even when he was at his weakest point, before Russia intervened and it looked like he was going to lose everything, Assad refused to work with the Kurds,” he said. “Now he is winning, and as the saying goes - the winner takes all.” Kurdish officials who were part of the first delegation to Damascus over the summer say the Syrian government was not prepared to make a single concession. Despite this, the Kurds - who are just about the only side in the multi-faceted war not to have had a full-scale military conflict with the regime - still hold out hope for a political solution. The Kurds, who number more than two million in Syria, have made great sacrifices for their “democratic experiment”, as they call their pseudo-state in the north. Islamic State losing its grip on Syria The YPG has suffered considerable losses in the battles against Isil in Raqqa and Deir Ezzor in the east. Officials estimate up to 8,000 fighters have been killed and 5,000 injured. Fierce battles are still ongoing for the last sliver of jihadist territory in Deir Ezzor. At least 5,000 IS fighters remain holed up in the pocket of territory, including some 2,000 foreign fighters, mostly Arabs and Europeans along with their families. The YPG has also made significant gains, including control of the country’s borders with Turkey and Iraq, its most lucrative oil fields and the freedom to once again speak their native language after decades of repression. “There are basic things we cannot give up; we need our democratic rights and our culture and language to be protected,” said Fawza al-Youssef, the co-chair of the executive body of the North Syria Federation. “But there are other things that are negotiable.” Mahmoud Mohammad Serhan, 59, a a retired trader who now keeps a farm, gets a cutthroat shave at a barber shop in Qamishli Credit:  Sam Tarling Relinquishing control of the borders and folding the YPG, into the national army, would be among the demands she says the self-administration would consider in return for a decentralisation of government. It would also be willing to do a deal on the oil fields in eastern Deir Ezzor province, which account for more than 80 per cent of the country’s pre-war production and currently lie within their control. “We aren’t saying all of this is rightfully ours, but the people here should benefit,” Ms Youssef said.  The next few days will prove pivotal for the Kurds as they face the greatest existential threat to their autonomy project since the war began. “We can’t go back to where were were before 2011, when we had nothing,” said Ms Youssef. “We have not fought this hard for it all to be destroyed.”

Qatar says Gulf Arab bloc needs reform to give it teeth
08:11 PM, 12.15.2018

Qatar says Gulf Arab bloc needs reform to give it teethForeign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said Qatar was still counting on Kuwait and other regional powers to help solve the row that has seen Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and non-GCC member Egypt impose a political and economic boycott on Doha since June 2017. "They have mechanisms in place and never trigger them (to hold people accountable) because some countries believe they are non-binding, so we need to make sure all the rules we are submitting to are binding to everyone in this region." The four states accuse Qatar of supporting terrorism and cosying up to regional foe Iran. Doha denies the charges and says the boycott aims to curtail its sovereignty.
