Tunisia bans UAE Emirates airline from landing in Tunis

Loading...


Tunisia has banned Emirates airline from landing in the capital Tunis after a number of Tunisian women were prevented from boarding its flights.
The move comes amid widespread anger in Tunisia, with rights groups condemning “racist and discriminatory” measures.
The transport ministry said the measure would stay in place until Emirates was able to “operate flights in accordance with law and international agreements”.
The UAE said “security information” caused the delays.
“We contacted our Tunisian brothers about security information that necessitated taking specific procedures,” Emirati Foreign Minister Anwar Gargash said on Twitter on Sunday.
“We highly value Tunisian women and respect them,” he added.
On Friday the Tunisian government said it had asked the UAE ambassador to clarify what was happening and had been told that the measures had been temporary and had already been lifted.
Tunisia has been trying to improve relations with the UAE that were damaged by its 2011 revolution.
Tunisia’s ruling Ennahda party also has links to Qatar, which has been cut off by the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain over its alleged support for terrorism.

Just In!! Guatemala to move embassy to Jerusalem

Guatemala is to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, President Jimmy Morales said Sunday, becoming the first leader to back US President Donald Trump’s controversial change of stance on the holy city.

After speaking with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Morales wrote to Guatemalans on his Facebook page that “one of the most important topics was the return of Guatemala’s embassy to Jerusalem,” from Tel Aviv, where it is currently located.

“For this reason I am informing you that I have given instructions to the foreign ministry that it start the necessary respective coordination to make this happen,” Morales wrote.

Us Senate Passes Trump Tax Bill After This Happened


Senate Republicans have passed a sweeping overhaul of the us tax code, placing Donald Trump on the brink of scoring his first major legislative victory.
The senate approved the $1.5 trillion tax bill, which includes permanent tax breaks for corporations and temporary tax cuts for individuals, by a final vote of 51-48. Once enacted, the legislation will represent the most drastic changes to the US tax code since 1986.

 

The bill, which was passed along party lines, had every senate republican present voting in its favor and all democrats voting against it. Arizona Senator John Mccain, who is undergoing treatment for brain cancer, was the lone member to be absent for the vote.

 

Although the bill’s passage was expected, tensions boiled to a surface as the final vote was held, as democrats sharply criticized republicans for a bill independent analysts have projected will disproportionately benefit the wealthy and corporations.
The legislation must go back to the republican-controlled House of Representatives for final approval, but is expected to pass

LEBANON PRESIDENT VOWS, SAYS: COUNTRIES WHO RECOGNIZED JERUSALEM AS CAPITAL OF ISRAEL WILL NOT HO UNPUNISHED

 

President of Lebanon, Michel Aoun, has called for a “united and gradual diplomatic and economic punishment against any state which recognises Jerusalem as Israel’s capital,” the Anadolu Agency reported. According to report Aoun made the call during the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation’s meeting held in Istanbul that discussed the issue of Jerusalem after the US President Donald Trump’s recognition of the Holy City as Israel’s capital.

“Israel calls itself a Jewish state and stresses on Judaising Jerusalem and making it its capital,” he said. “This is an elimination of the holy identity of the city and cancelation of two heavenly messages.”
“Can we imagine the Christians and Christianity without Jerusalem, Bethlehem, the Church of Holy Sepulchre and the Church of the Nativity? The same thing, Can we imagine Muslims and Islam without Jerusalem, Al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy sites in Palestine?”

Visegrad group countries offer 35m euros for Libyan border protection


The Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia have offered 35 million euros (41 million dollars) to assist an EU project aiming at beefing up border protection in Libya.

This is in an effort to help tackle the bloc’s migration crisis in the area, the four countries said this in a statement while addressing the root causes of the problems.
The move to financially assist the Italian-led project is meant to demonstrate efforts by the four countries, which belong to the so-called Visegrad group or Visegrad IV (V4) within the EU, to pull their weight on providing solutions to migration questions.
The V4 have long been critical of EU policies on mandatory quotas to relocate migrants arriving to Italy and Greece, and they have called for stemming the flow of migrants in countries outside the EU.
“The financial effort and the readiness in the implementation of the project is another demonstration of the V4 countries of their conviction that the migratory pressure on Europe can only be tackled by protecting external borders.
On Dec. 8, the V4 launched a joint project to strengthen the Libyan border protection and improve the situation of refugees in Libya, the Government Office said in a statement on Friday.
The project is to help prevent migrant crises, outgoing Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka wrote.
Sobotka wrote in the statement that the V4’s joint project is to be one of a number of Czech activities to prevent migrant crises.
The V4’s financial contributions will go to the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa, which was established two years ago in support of African countries of migrant origin and transit, the Government Office wrote.

The Czech Republic has contributed 1.66 million euros to the fund so far, being one of the biggest contributors in Central and East Europe.
Earlier this year, the Czech government approved 25 million crowns worth of a contribution to the Libyan coast guards.
on Friday, the Czech Republic launched a project together with Italy, which focuses on improving the situation of people in the Ivory Coast.
The Czech contribution of 26 million crowns is designated to improve healthcare in this country and facilitate refugees’ return, the government office wrote.

Africa: How the African Union Got It Wrong On Zimbabwe

FOR the first time in more than two years – the longest stretch since the late 1950s – a coup d’etat rocked a country in Africa. Late on the evening of November 14, the Zimbabwe military seized control of the capital, Harare, and placed President Robert Mugabe under house arrest.

 

The coup was vehemently denied as such by its perpetrators, but the military’s doublespeak could not alter the reality: after 37 ruinous years in power, Zimbabwe’s liberator-turned-dictator faced an ignominious exit at the hands of his comrades.

Surprisingly, the coup also confounded the African Union and threatened to damage one of its major policy successes since its founding in 2002 – zero tolerance for unconstitutional changes of government out of the barrel of a gun. Why, in contravention of its anti-coup dictum, did the AU accept the coup in Zimbabwe? What implications will this have for ending politics by force in Africa?

 

For decades, coups – in which a faction within government uses its partial control of the state apparatus to (forcibly) remove the ruler from power – wrought havoc in countries across Africa, undermining democracy, fomenting instability and civil war, and impeding economic growth. Between 1950 and 2010, 169 coup attempts took place in Africa, of which 51.5 percent were successful.

 

For most of this period, the continent’s coup epidemic was exacerbated by The Organization of African Unity’s (OAU) capital city rule, whereby whoever controlled the capital, no matter how he/she came to power, was recognised as the sovereign representative by other states.

Ugandan parliamentary committee approves age limit bill

A Ugandan parliamentary committee has approved changes aimed at scrapping presidential age limit.
Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee members endorsed the most sweeping constitutional changes since 2005, with 18 votes— taking a significant leap forward as 10th Parliament seeks to increase presidential term from five to seven years.

 

5-YEAR TERM
Although Article 105 (1), which provides for a five-year presidential term, was not among the proposed constitutional amendments, the Monitor understands that a polarised committee retreat on Friday approved a seven-year presidential term and recommended a referendum.
President Yoweri Museveni has since backed a seven-year term and the age limit removal.
But as “a bargain chip” in the dramatic endorsement of the removal of age limits, the ruling National Resistance Movement members, according to committee sources, backed the Opposition demand for the restoration of the term limits in the Ugandan constitution.
The terms limit was removed by MPs in the 7th Parliament in 2005 to allow President Museveni contest for a third term in office during the 2006 elections.

 

NRM MPs
Although Opposition MPs have welcomed the proposed restoration of the term limits in the constitution, they have accused NRM MPs of trying to appease a bigger part of their voters who had warned them not to tinker with the Constitution.
The debate on the proposed restoration of term limits, however, became controversial after committee members failed to agree on whether a president who has already served two or more terms under the current legal regime, should be allowed to “count afresh” and even contest under the new political dispensation.
he matter was left to the House to decide.
“It’s obvious the NRM MPs are trying to bury their heads in the sand like an ostrich…they are hunting for an enticing excuse in exchange to appease voters who rejected the amendment to Article 102 (b),” Masaka Municipality MP Mathias Mpuuga said.
Expressing fears that the proposed restoration of the term limits might not sail through Parliament, Mr Mpuuga and other Opposition lawmakers told the Monitor that the trade-off is mere window-dressing, and that “the same people who removed the term limits are still around and their appetite for power and patronage seems to grow.”

 

7 MEMBERS
Mr Mpuuga said: “The issue at hand is about cultivating a culture of respect for laws of the land… the two most important Articles [102 (b) and 105 (2)] that acted as safeguards of nascent democracy were never tested but seen as roadblocks warranting removal, without addressing why they existed in the first place. This is absurd.”
The ruling party members backed by “friendly” independents used their numerical strength in the committee to endorse the removal of age limit from the 1995 constitution in spite of the dissenting views from minority legislators led by Busiro East MP Medard Lubega Ssegona, Bugweri MP Abdu Katuntu and Kumi MP Monicah Amoding (NRM).
At least seven committee members— including Opposition chief whip, Ssemuju Ibrahim Nganda and Kampala Central MP Muhammad Nsereko — were conspicuously absent.
Some of the absentee MPs were attending the 8th Inter-Parliamentary Games in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

 

VOTING
Since Thursday, members of Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee have been holed up at the Lake Victoria Serena, Kigo, to write their report ahead of the anticipated Second Reading of the Raphael Magyezi’s Constitutional (Amendments) Bill, 2017 on Tuesday.
However, sources have told the Monitor that on account of the disagreements, especially on the proposed amendment to Article 102 (b) of the Constitution, there will be two reports — the main report and the minority report.
Although the main report has made its recommendations, they are not final.
The Committee of the Whole House chaired by Speaker will debate the two reports and vote on each of them— including the controversial proposed amendments— before a final decision is made.
Although there were reports in the corridors of Lake Victoria Serena Hotel that those who voted in favour of the removal of the age limit from the 1995 Constitution pocketed USh100 milion each as part of a Shs300m deal, the Monitor could not independently verify these claims.
In backing the removal of age limit caps, the 18 MPs branded Article 102 (b) as “discriminatory” and insisted that the choice should be left to the voters since under Article 1, power belongs to the people.

 

CONSENSUS

 

The members also argued that there are many leaders all over the world who are above 75 and that many prosperous countries like the US don’t have age restrictions.

 

On the other hand, in the draft minority report, those against the removal of age limit asked their colleagues to account for the views of Ugandans who rejected the proposed amendments and insisted that there should be qualifications for leadership positions since the law provides for academic and citizenship qualifications.
They have also argued that discrimination is under Article 21 (3) and age is not one of them.
Without delving into the details of the two reports, Mr Oboth Oboth, the committee chairperson said: “We have concluded report writing; we have two reports— majority and minority— because there is no unanimity in the matter. It’s a controversial matter you cannot have consensus.”
Once the report(s) signing process is done, Mr Oboth Oboth told the Monitor that the two reports will be officially presented to the Speaker Rebecca Kadaga and then a decision will be made at that level to schedule the Second Reading of the Constitutional (Amendments) Bill on the order paper.

EU’s Federica Mogherini condemns ‘all attacks on Jews everywhere’

 

By Agence France-Presse

The EU’s diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini on Monday condemned “all attacks on Jews everywhere in the world” as she met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Brussels.
Foreign ministers from the 28-member bloc are set to urge Netanyahu — making the first visit to the EU by an Israeli premier in more than two decades — to restart “meaningful” dialogue aimed at reaching peace with the Palestinians.
The visit comes after US President Donald Trump officially recognised Jerusalem as the Israeli capital — a move widely condemned by international leaders but which Netanyahu said made peace “possible”.

 

“Let me condemn in the strongest possible way all attacks on Jews everywhere in the world, including in Europe, and on Israel and on Israeli citizens,” Mogherini said ahead of an informal breakfast meeting between Netanyahu and the EU foreign ministers.
Her remarks come after Netanyahu criticised Europe for “hypocrisy” for condemning Trump’s announcement but not rockets fired into Israel from Gaza.
She said the “worst thing that can happen now is an escalation of tensions, of violence” and restated the EU’s position that a two-state solution with Jerusalem as capital for both Israelis and Palestinians was the only sustainable way to resolve the conflict.
Both Israelis and Palestinians claim Jerusalem as their capital and previous peace plans have stumbled over debates on whether and how to divide sovereignty or oversee holy sites.

Jerusalem: UN insists on two-state solution, threatens to do this

António Guterres, UN secretary-general, on Wednesday said there was no alternative to the two-state solution to the lingering conflict between Israel and Palestinian.
Guterres made the remarks in the wake of the announcement by the US President Donald Trump recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
The UN chief said Jerusalem was an issue that must be resolved through direct negotiations between the parties.
“In this moment of great anxiety, I want to make it clear: there is no alternative to the two-state solution.

 

“There is no Plan B,” Guterres said while speaking to the press at UN headquarters in New York.
The UN chief stressed the need to realise the vision of two states “living side-by-side in peace, security and mutual recognition, with Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and Palestine, and all final status issues resolved permanently through negotiations”.
According to him, it is only through that realisation that the legitimate aspirations of both peoples would be achieved.
“I understand the deep attachment that Jerusalem holds in the hearts of so many people. It has been so for centuries and it will always be,” he added.
He also noted that since he took up his post as UN secretary-general, he had consistently spoken out against any unilateral measures that would jeopardise the prospect of peace for Israelis and Palestinians.

 

“For my part as the UN secretary-general, I will do everything in my power to support the Israeli and Palestinian leaders to return to meaningful negotiations and to realise this vision of a lasting peace for both people,” he said.
Trump had while announcing his recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital, said his decision marked “the beginning of a new approach to conflict between Israel and the Palestinians”.
He recalled that in 1995, the US congress adopted the Jerusalem Embassy Act, urging “the federal government to relocate the American embassy to Jerusalem and to recognise that that city – and so importantly – is Israel’s capital”.

 

According to him, the act was also passed in congress by an overwhelming bipartisan majority and was reaffirmed by a unanimous vote of the senate only six months ago.
For over 20 years, every previous American president has exercised the law’s waiver, refusing to move the US embassy to Jerusalem or to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city.
