  5. Clinton sought secret info on EU bailout plans as son-in-law’s doomed hedge fund gambled on Greece

    Hedge fund manager Marc Mezvinsky had friends in high places when he bet big on a Greek economic recovery, but even the keen interest of his mother-in-law, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, wasn’t enough to spare him and his investors from financial tragedy.

    In 2012, Mezvinski, the husband of Chelsea Clinton, created a $325 million basket of offshore funds under the Eaglevale Partners banner through a special arrangement with investment bank Goldman Sachs. The funds have lost tens of millions of dollars predicting that bailouts of the Greek banking system would pump up the value of the country’s distressed bonds. One fund, exclusively dedicated to Greek debt, suffered near-total losses.

  6. Facebook responded Sunday to allegations made by the Israeli government that the site has been “sabotaging” police efforts to prevent Palestinian violence.

    A day prior, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan accused Facebook of not cooperating with Israeli inquiries about potential suspects in the occupied West Bank, and of “set(ting) a very high bar for removing inciteful content and posts.”

    The accusation followed a 10-month surge in Palestinian street attacks, some of which were inspired by content on the social network, the Israeli government says.

  7. Mauritania arrests nine anti-slavery activists
    Mauritanian authorities have arrested nine anti-slavery activists and accused them of starting a riot in which several police officers were injured and a bus was burned, activist leaders said on Sunday.

    The arrests were an attempt to use the riot in Nouakchott to discredit the Initiative for the Resurgence of the Abolitionist Movement (IRA) movement, its coordinator Issa Ould Aliyine told a news conference.

    “From the first hours of the riots, and even without knowing their cause or the details, an order was given to government media to start a campaign to link the IRA with the violence,” he said.

  8. Hamas has called on Palestinian youths to take revenge against Israel.

    In a press release, the Gaza-ruling Palestinian terror group called for the “youth” of the West Bank to take revenge against Israelis for “crimes against our elders” through “resistance in all its forms,” including terrorism, the Times of Israel reported.

    Hamas added that Israel would pay a “heavy price” for its crimes during Ramadan, which has always been the “month of jihad and resistance.”

  10. Now Ruthless Putin to send Russia’s largest warship to Syria to finally annihilate ISIS (express, July 4, 2016)
    http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/685882/Vladimir-Putin-ISIS-Islamic-State-Syria-warship-fighter-jet-helicopter-politics

    “VLADIMIR Putin is sending a warship packed with fighter jets to Syria in a bid to wipe out the Islamic State for good.

    The merciless Kremlin leader is dispatching the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier – along with 30 deadly jets and attack helicopters – to the war-ravaged region in a bid to wipe the death cult off the face of the earth.

    Moscow’s decision came in the wake of ISIS’ latest terrorist atrocities in Bangladesh, which saw 20 hostages murdered in a restaurant in the capital Dhaka and 125 shoppers killed by a car bomb in Baghdad, Iraq.

    The 55,000 tonne vessel will be deployed in Middle Eastern waters from October until January, according to Russian military sources.

    Putin’s warship is expected to arrive in the Mediterranean this Autumn, where it will link up with land-based Russian forces already deployed in the region…”

    • Once again the myth of winning a war with air power alone surfaces, it has never happened and will never happen. Bombing alone can make a nation rubble but it will not destroy the will to resist because it says the attackers are afraid to come in on the ground.

    “A MUSLIM festival expected to attract thousands of people has been cancelled amid escalating racial tensions following Britain’s vote to leave the EU.

    As many as 2,000 people were expected to descend on East Park in Southampton to celebrate Eid – the end of the holy month of Ramadan – today and Tuesday.

    But the British Bangladeshi Cultural Academy, which organised the event, has called it off after far-right groups threatened to hold a demonstration celebrating Brexit.

    Members of far-right group Pie and Mash Squad, who describe themselves as “a group of people who love Pie ‘n’ Mash and Britain the way it used to be”, have teamed up with faction group South Coast Resistance for the event.

    Pie and Mash Squad called on demonstrators to “join us to celebrate Brexit and an end to mass immigration”.

    Chairman of the British Bangladesh Cultural Academy Shere Sattar said it was “for the good of all communities” to cancel the festival…”
