The spread of deadly superbugs that evade even the most powerful antibiotics is no longer a prediction but is happening right now across the world, United Nations officials said on Wednesday.Sponsored Ads
Antibiotic resistance has the potential to affect anyone, of any age, in any country, the U.N.’s World Health Organisation (WHO) said in a report. It is now a major threat to public health, of which “the implications will be devastating”.
Can you imagine a world where the United Nations (UN) has control over your country? Imagine a world with a collective sovereignty. In this new world order, each country has their own head of state, but the UN acts as an uber-parliament, or Congress. Elections still occur, but political parties are now international. Ambassadors are replaced by presidents and prime ministers to represent their nation. War is illegal and military authority rests in the hands of the Security Council to oversee multiple armies.
Why would any country give up its sovereignty in order to be governed by the UN? The same force that drove Jews to recreate Israel will also force some countries into the arms of the UN – fear of death. If countries fear for their very survival, then they might be willing to let the UN govern them. If a big chunk of the planet is obliterated by nuclear wars, then the remaining countries might be a little more flexible.
What would happen if many countries join a UN led government, but Russia and China won’t? And we know they won’t. What then?
Former Palestinian Authority (PA) Prisoner-Affairs Minister Ashraf Al-Ajrami, who spent 12 years in Israeli custody for terrorist activity, threatened, Monday, that if there is no diplomatic agreement between Israel and the PA, the PA will go to war with a high price on both sides which will result in the eventual renewal of talks. Speaking in Hebrew at a gathering in a Knesset auditorium, organized by Member of Knesset Moshe Mizrachi (Labor), he also said the PA had no alternative but to seek unilateral action at the United Nations General Assembly.
Al-Ajrami said the PA has not received an answer from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on the principle of the two-state solution, based on Israel’s borders before the Six Day War of 1967. He said, “The Israeli right thinks that with time the Palestinians forget the ’67 borders and will settle for Areas A and B [under various degrees of PA security control -ed.]. I want to tell you that there is not one Palestinian in the world who will concede even one centimeter from the ’67 borders.”
Now that Russian ships can stop in Cyprus, having personnel in Syria isn’t worth the risk.
“Now that the battlefield initiative in Syria’s civil war is in the hands of the Assad regime, Russia might fear some [rebel] provocations against our people. Another possible reason may be to help promote the Geneva-2 talks. We have information that Russia, the United Nations and the US have agreed to a format for the talks. So, perhaps Russia wants to dispel impression that its position is based on some desire to hold on to this station,” Mr. Sotnikov says.
“In any case, Russian ships have the opportunity to go to Cyprus for supplies and maintenance, and it’s safer for them to do so right now,” he adds.
Israeli tanks moved Thursday to the border on the Israeli-occupied side of the Golan Heights.
The move came after the Syrian army recaptured Quneitra crossing, Syria’s only crossing to the Golan Heights.
The Israeli military has filed a complaint with the United Nations’ Disengagement Observer Force in the Golan Heights about Syrian tanks crossing the demarcation line, the Israel Defense Forces said Thursday.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Arutz Sheva, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton, said that the situation with Iran “is very perilous” because the regime “is close to achieving its twenty year long objective of getting nuclear weapons.”
“I don’t think the economic sanctions have slowed the program down at all and I think that unless the United States or Israel takes military action that Iran will get nuclear weapons,” Bolton told Arutz Sheva.
“This is a very undesirable situation to be in and the choices are not good…,” he added.
The Syrian civil war is threatening the 39-year-old cease-fire between Syria and Israel, as fighting along a separation line between the two countries is undermining the United Nations’ capacity to monitor the terms of the truce, according to U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki moon.
The development poses the most serious challenge to date to the 1974 Disengagement of Forces Agreement, which set the terms for a strained, but stable, stalemate between Israel and Syria following the Yom Kippur War. For decades, it has helped to guarantee relative calm between Israel and Syria in the Golan Heights.
However, policy specific to China is not mentioned in the text of the strategy.
“This strategy is not focused on any one country nor is it focused on cybersecurity exclusively, though cyber does play an important role in the strategy,” said a White House official.
U.S. officials said the strategy deliberately played down the major role played by China in order to avoid upsetting relations with Beijing.
John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, criticized the report for lacking substance.
“Repeating its strategic mistake of treating international terrorism as primarily a matter of law-enforcement, the Obama administration sees cyberspace the same way conceptually,” Bolton told the Free Beacon.
Why don’t US officials want to upset Beijing? Notice that Beijing isn’t worried about upsetting the US. Why not?
Here we have the US terrified of upsetting Beijing. Beijing acts with impunity. Who is the superpower here? Has the student become the master? I think the US is in big trouble.
Report warns that civil war fighting has split along sectarian lines, pitting ruling Alawites against majority Sunnis.
The Lebanese Shia group Hezbollah has confirmed that its members are in Syria fighting on behalf of the government, United Nations human rights investigators said on Thursday.
There are also reports that Iraqi Shias are coming to fight in Syria, and Iran confirmed in September that its Revolutionary Guards are in Syria providing assistance, the independent investigators led by Brazilian expert Paulo Pinheiro said in their latest 10-page report.
The United States will seek to block an “alarming” Russian proposal to give a United Nations telecommunications group control over the Internet, a senior State Department official said on Thursday.
“We will actively oppose the Russian proposal,” Terry Kramer, head of the U.S. delegation to a U.N. conference in Dubai, told reporters.
Somebody should tell the Russians to go to hell. Who do they think they are?
