Over 50 Injured as Israeli Forces Use Live Fire to Disperse Gaza Protesters

  • Over 50 Injured as Israeli Forces Use Live Fire to Disperse Gaza Protesters
    by https://www.presstv.com/
    More than 50 Palestinians have been injured by Israeli gunfire and tear gas at the border of the besieged Gaza Strip with the occupied territories, as a fresh round of protest rallies drew several thousand Palestinian demonstrators to the flashpoint frontier.

    According to the Palestinian Ma’an news agency, clashes erupted on Monday after thousands of protesters gathered near sea port in the northern Gaza Strip to challenge the years-long Israeli siege on the coastal enclave. The Tel Aviv regime’s troops used live ammunition and fired teargas canisters to disperse the protesters.

    Local sources said that at least 51 Palestinians were injured, including some 10 by Israeli live fire. Dozens more suffered from tear gas inhalation. The latest clash comes after seven people lost their lives by Israeli live fire during multiple protests held across the Gaza Strip on Friday evening. Another 506 protesters were also injured.

    Meanwhile, Gaza’s national Committee for Breaking the Siege, which organized the march, said that it would launch further such rallies until Israel overturned the blockade of the Palestinian enclave.

THRESHOLD BREACHED Critical FedRes Report

    Link to Slides and Sources: https://www.itmtrading.com/blog/thres…
    Interest rates have risen substantially since July 2016, with shorter term rates rising faster than longer term rates, thus threatening a yield curve inversion. Why does that matter you ask? Because this inversion has indicated a recession 100% of the time including the brief inversion the US experienced on December 27, 2005. Perhaps that’s why “Central bank gold purchases in the first half you 2018 consumed 10% of the total market.”

  • ‘Maneuvered to Prevent Collision’: Chinese Destroyer Chases USS Decatur in South China Sea
    by https://www.rt.com/
    A Chinese destroyer sent to escort the USS Decatur on a ‘freedom of navigation’ sail-by in the disputed South China Sea came dangerously close and forced the US vessel to maneuver to “prevent collision,” the US Navy said.

    The encounter between the US and Chinese Navies unfolded on Sunday morning when the Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, sailing under the ‘freedom of navigation’ principle, approached close to one of the Gaven Reefs in the Tizard Bank of the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea.

    In response, China dispatched a Luyang-class destroyer to escort the American warship away from the disputed area, allegedly behaving in an “unsafe and unprofessional” manner, according to the US version of events.

Trump May Be Deliberately Working to Drive Countries Away From US – Analyst

  • Trump May Be Deliberately Working to Drive Countries Away From US – Analyst
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    Speaking at the United Nations General Assembly this week, US President Donald Trump urged the world to respect US sovereignty while seemingly threatening to violate the sovereignty of other coutnries. Speaking to Sputnik, US geopolitical analyst Tom Luongo outlined what he believes is the fundamental contradiction in Trump’s worldview.

    Sputnik: What is your take on Foreign Minister Lavrov’s discontent with the West’s “unilateral approach” to world politics which he said hinders the creation of a multipolar world?

    Speaking at the United Nations General Assembly this week, US President Donald Trump urged the world to respect US sovereignty while seemingly threatening to violate the sovereignty of other countries. Speaking to Sputnik, US geopolitical analyst Tom Luongo outlined what he believes is the fundamental contradiction in Trump’s worldview.


    Sputnik: What is your take on Foreign Minister Lavrov’s discontent with the West’s “unilateral approach” to world politics which he said hinders the creation of a multipolar world?

    Tom Luongo:
     I think we’ve taken a very dangerous turn here in the US, with Donald Trump and his neoconservative cabinet trying to dictate to the world exactly what we want at all stages. This just feels to me like this is the final lashings out of an empire that doesn’t understand that everybody else has already moved on, and are just trying to figure out how they can minimize the damage while they do so.

    Sputnik: Do you think that this Trumpian unilateralism and resistance to the multipolar nature of the modern world is actually backfiring in some ways and causing countries to move away from the US and forming new alliances?

    Tom Luongo: Yes, that’s absolutely what’s going on, and part of me almost feels like Trump is doing this on purpose. Donald Trump is a very interesting and mercurial figure, and I’m both happy and sad that he’s my president, because he’s like half good and half bad. I do believe that he feels that the current geopolitical world order that the US has been paying for since the end of World War 2, the post-WW2 institutional order, doesn’t work for the United States anymore.

    But I also feel that at a certain level, he doesn’t quite understand that we also don’t have a manifest destiny to tell the world how it’s going to run, and how it’s going to operate, either. That’s a conflict between the practicalities of the real world, and I hate to use the term, but Donald Trump is the quintessential baby boomer in that respect. He really has that kind of messianic American exceptionalism burned into his psyche. And while it’s laudable at a certain level, it can also be really toxic if taken to an extreme.

Iran, EU to Finalize Cooperation Mechanism Despite US Pressures: Spokesman

  • Iran, EU to Finalize Cooperation Mechanism Despite US Pressures: Spokesman
    by http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/
    TEHRAN — Iran and the European Union are working to finalize a mechanism to guarantee trade cooperation despite the US pressures to abort the attempts, an Iranian spokesman said Monday.

    Iran and the EU have neared an understanding following intensive negotiations, Bahram Qasemi, spokesman of the Iranian Foreign Ministry, said at his weekly press briefing. The United States attempts to abort Iran-EU engagement will fail virtually, Qasemi stressed.

    On Saturday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the central banks of seven European states are ready to work with Iran amid the US new sanctions expected to take affect on Nov 4. The Europeans have made extensive efforts to save the 2015 nuclear deal over the past few months, Zarif said.

    After the US withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal in May, the remaining parties, including the EU, have been trying to keep the deal afloat. US President Donald Trump has vowed to re-impose oil and banking sanctions on Iran, which were lifted under the 2015 international nuclear deal.

Iran, Europe ‘Finalizing Mechanism for Cooperation, US Sabotage Sure to Fail’

  • Iran, Europe ‘Finalizing Mechanism for Cooperation, US Sabotage Sure to Fail’
    by https://www.presstv.com/
    Iran has been doing copious work with Europe to devise a mechanism to guarantee continued bilateral trade despite attempts by the United States to obstruct such cooperation, says an Iranian official, declaring that US sabotage is “certain” to fail as a result of ongoing Iranian-European diplomatic engagement.

    “After much negotiation over a clear mechanism with Europe, we have neared certain understandings; and for sure, US sabotage in that regard will fail,” said Bahram Qassemi, spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry, during a press briefing on Monday.

    Qassemi referred to the US unilateral pullout from a multilateral deal with Iran, Europe, Russia, and China on May 8, and said Tehran has since been negotiating with the remaining parties to work out a mechanism to beat the US financial reach in European countries that would hinder their continued cooperation with Iran.

    Iran struck the deal with originally six world powers and the European Union (EU) back in 2015, agreeing to curb its nuclear program in return for mainly lifting restrictions on its oil sales.

    When US President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled America out in May, he reintroduced the previous sanctions and imposed new ones on the Islamic Republic. He also introduced punitive measures — known as secondary sanctions — against third countries doing business with Iran.

    Iran has stayed in the deal but has stressed that the other parties to the agreement have to work to offset the negative impacts of the US pullout for Iran if they wanted Tehran to continue to remain in it. Europe has been taking a range of measures to meet the Iranian demand for practical guarantees.

    ‘Details to remain undisclosed’
    On September 24, Iran and its five partners released a joint statement announcing the setting up of a “Special Purpose Vehicle” to facilitate continued trade with Iran, bypass the US’s financial system, and avoid any impact of America’s secondary sanctions. That statement did not provide details. And EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said technical talks would ensue.
