Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman quits over Gaza truce

Lieberman resigns over Gaza truce

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman has announced he is resigning from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government in protest against a truce in Gaza.

Addressing reporters in Jerusalem on Wednesday, Lieberman said he deemed Tuesday's Egyptian-mediated ceasefire with Hamas in Gaza "a capitulation to terror".

"Despite the difference in opinion, I tried to stay a faithful member of the government for as long as possible … but it has failed," Lieberman said.

He said he also fiercely objected to Israel's allowing Qatar to deliver $15m in aid to Gaza last week.

TVNL Comment: Lieberman is a fiercely right wing activist, dedicated to the removal of all Palestinians from Gaza and the West Bank, - as well as Israel proper.  Let's see who replaces him.


Crown Prince’s wings clipped as Khashoggi death rattles Riyadh

Crown Prince's wings clippedSix weeks after Jamal Khashoggi was murdered by Saudi agents, the decision-making process in Riyadh is slowly starting to change. Fallout from the assassination in Istanbul has wounded Mohammed bin Salman, the heir to the throne, and given a second wind to an old guard of elders, whose views are once more being heard.

Publicly, the Kingdom’s leaders appear chastened and contrite in the wake of Khashoggi’s gruesome killing inside the Saudi consulate. In private though, senior members of the House of Saud, including the crown prince, are partly blaming Turkey for the global revulsion, which they say could have been contained if Ankara had played by “regional rules”.


North Korea running at least 13 secret operating bases for ballistic missile program, new study shows

N. Korea has at least 13 secret ballistic missile basesNorth Korea has at least 13 secret operating bases where the regime is continuing work on its ballistic missile program, a sign Kim Jong Un is not winding down his country’s nuclear program despite public promises touted by the Trump administration.

New research, conducted by the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Security, has identified 13 of an estimated 20 North Korean missile operating bases that Kim's regime has not declared.

North Korea's highly publicized move to decommission a satellite launch facility gained a flurry of positive media attention. But that move "obscures the military threat to U.S. forces and South Korea from this and other undeclared ballistic missile bases," the CSIS report concludes.

TVNL Comment:  Good work, Donnie.  You've been played, big time.


Israeli officer killed during Gaza raid in which six Palestinians died

Israeli officer killed during raid in which 6 Palestinians died

An Israeli officer has been killed and another injured during a raid by Israeli special forces in Gaza on Sunday. The military operation killed six Palestinians and, according to Hamas, one of its commanders.

Fawzi Barhoum, a spokesman for Hamas denounced the “cowardly Israeli attack”.

The office of Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would cut short his trip to Paris, where he had been attending world war one commemorations, and return home. The conflict potentially dashes hopes that a recent agreement would restore calm.


Churchill’s Grandson: Trump ‘Pathetic’ for Scrapping Cemetery Visit

Trump ditches visit to US Vet's Cemetery in FrancePresident Trump has called off a planned visit to a U.S. military cemetery outside Paris due to what the White House claims is “logistical difficulties caused by the weather.”

The White House said Saturday that Chief of Staff General John Kelly and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joe Dunford will visit the Aisne-Marne American cemetery instead after Trump canceled the trip. While rain was reported in the area, it was not immediately clear how that would prevent a helicopter ride.


Erdogan: Turkey shared Khashoggi tapes with Saudi, US and others

Erdogan gave tapes to US and others

Turkey has shared recordings related to the killing of Jamal Khashoggi with Saudi Arabia, the United States, Germany, France and Britain, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday.

Turkish sources have said previously that authorities have an audio recording purportedly documenting the murder of the Saudi journalist.

The existence of such a recording has never been officially confirmed.

Speaking before his departure for France to attend commemorations to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, Erdogan said Saudi Arabia knows Khashoggi's killer is among a group of 15 people who flew into Istanbul hours before the October 2 killing.


Israel Corruption Scandal Ensnares Netanyahu’s Cousin, Others Tied to Inner Circle

Netanyahu cousin snared in scandal

Startling new charges recommended by the Israeli police threaten to blow open the secrets of its entire leadership caste, including a cousin of prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the dashing former commander of its navy.

These are all men much more accustomed to the shadows.

The last time Maj. Gen. Eliezer Marom had a brush with scandal was in 2009, while serving as Commander of the Israeli navy.

The well-known officer was seen by passersby at the Go-Go Girls strip club in downtown Tel Aviv “smoking a cigar, drinking alcohol and surrounded by bare-chested women” in the words of Yediot Ahronot, the tabloid that published a breathless report the next morning.
