    I’m not clear on the islamaphobia segment. It seemed to have been presented as if banning sharia law was a negative thing. Surely any nation would expect immigrants to be subject to the same law that the rest of the citizens are, and would be against the ability of immigrants to cordon off geographical regions within their host nation for the purpose of living under a different legal system. That is wrong any way you slice it. If people wish to migrate to another country, it must be with the understanding that if they want to change the law, they must use the same process as everyone else who lives there. Very disappointed in how this story was presented.

  2. CollinBl says:

    John – “it seemed to have been presented” – your take, your assumption, but you then use those very assumptions to suggest bias to the report.

    Thanks Peter B, a good airing of news as far as i can see, being a non northern hemisphere resident.

  3. John Richardson says:

    Collin — That was my intention. I am not making accusations of bias, but suggesting that the way it was presented seems biased. I then made the rationale for why.

  4. The whole damned world seemed upside down.

    no coverage that i can recall of the remarkable comments at the Herzliya conference by Israeli intelligence figure Major General Halevi, reported here among other places–

    “In a speech delivered at “Herzliya” conference yesterday , Halevy explicitly said “Israel” does not want the situation in Syria to end with the defeat of ISIS “, the Israeli NRG site reported. “Withdrawal of the super powers from the region and letting Israel alone in front of Hezbollah and Iran that possess good abilities will make “Israel” in a hard position” . Therefore, we’ve to do all we can so as not finding ourselves in such situation”, the Israeli chief intelligence added.”
    https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/israeli-intelligence-chief-not-want-isis-defeat-syria/

    while Halevi does not explicitly express support for ISIS–there is the usual eyewash about the islamic threat–he makes clear in concluding remarks [available with simultaneous translation here at 37:30 and following, from which the substance of the above translation was taken: http://www.herzliyaconference.org/eng/?CategoryID=476 To see video of Halevi’s remarks, hit the “VOD” option on the first page (far to the right in a row of boxes). On the next page, you should see two smaller boxes on the left: “VOD” and “Translate.” If you hit VOD, it will offer you the option of Day 1, 2, or 3. If you select Day 2, then the option for “Turbulent Middle East,” you can see the entire speech] that Israel will not accept the defeat of ISIS if that means return to the status quo ante, and in particular highlights (what the above translation does not mention) that Israel does not want to be left at a disadvantage in military capability relative to Hezbollah and Iran!!!

    these comments represent an official public israeli position on Syria. are they pertinent to the ongoing negotiations about military aid for Israel?

    Susan Rice and OMB Director Shaun Donovan said that the administration was prepared to increase the existing military aid package for Israel, worth nearly $30b ($3b/yr for 10 years – RB), and sign a new one “that would constitute the largest pledge of military assistance to any country in Pindosi history.”
