Teen Ahed Tamimi Out Israeli jail

Israel’s military  explained  the two soldiers had been in the area to prevent Palestinians from throwing stones at Israeli motorists.

The video of the altercation does not show the soldiers reacting to Tamimi’s actions or using their weapons, and the teenager was arrested four days later.

Tamimi said she hoped to study law to expose the issue of Israel’s occupation to the rest of the world. Israel has long said Tamimi and her siblings have been manipulated by her parents  longtime activists  and used as pawns in staged provocations.

When she was only 14, a picture of her biting a soldier’s hand to prevent him from arresting a family member went viral. She denied claims that she had been exploited.

Ahed Tamimi said Monday after  her eight-month sentence in an Israeli jail for slapping two soldiers, said she does not regret any of her actions.

Tamimi, who was 16 when she was arrested in December for hitting and kicking soldiers in front of her house in the occupied West Bank, was released Sunday and swarmed by media from across the globe.

In an interview  to media, she understood she had become a “symbol” of the Palestinian cause. “Of course my life has been changed a lot. I changed a lot in prison,” said Tamimi. “I became more focused, more aware also. Prison ages a person. In one day you age 100 years,” she said in the backyard of her home in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh. When asked if she would have done the same thing if she had known it would land her behind bars for months, she said yes.

She narrated circumstances in which the soldiers had entered the garden of her house in December during a day of major protests that saw her cousin shot in the head with a rubber bullet. Her confronting of the Israeli soldiers was recorded and went viral online. “I didn’t do anything wrong that I should regret,” she said.

“If I had known I would be in jail eight months, of course I would have done it because it was a natural reaction to a soldier being in my house shooting at people, people from my village,” she said. “Any person in this situation — I hit him, maybe there are people that would have killed him.”


“My family never exploited me once,” she said.

“I am mature enough and I know the cause. I know the consequences that will stem from choosing this path. I am not a child.”

Tamimi and her mother Nariman were sentenced to eight months by an Israeli military court in a plea deal following the December incident.

Israel has occupied the West Bank and east Jerusalem since seizing it in a 1967 war. Tamimi’s village Nabi Saleh is close to a number of Israeli settlements.

The teenager  only 17, Tamimi’s stint in jail has made her one of the best-known living Palestinians. Palestinians and their supporters see her as a hero standing up to the Israeli army unarmed. Many Israelis view her with contempt and some accuse her activist family of being supporters of “terrorism.” Last week a 14-foot (4-metre) mural of her was painted on Israel’s separation wall that cuts off the West Bank. The Italian artists who painted it were arrested by Israel.

After her release on Sunday, throngs of media and supporters rushed to catch a glimpse of her and greet her. At times when speaking to media she sounded like a budding Palestinian politician, at others like the teenager she is.

She said she still loves football and was crazy over the World Cup — watching the games when possible in jail and supporting Brazil and Neymar in particular.

One of the first things she did after leaving prison was visit an ice cream parlour in central Ramallah, the West Bank city where the Palestinian government is based.

“Of course there is no ice cream in prison ever. I love it a lot. When it was summer I would avoid food. I would only eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner,” she said. Asked if she had a message for Israelis who think of her as a “terrorist”, she said she would ask them to “put themselves in my place, just that, nothing more”.”Go back to their humanity a little so they can understand the reality.”

Cambodia opposition sees ‘death of democracy’ to CPP won

Prime Minister Hun Sen’s ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) said on Monday it had won all 125 parliamentary seats up for grabs in a general election a day earlier that critics said was neither free nor fair.

“The CPP won 77.5 per cent of the votes and won all the parliamentary seats,” CPP spokesman Sok Eysan told Reuters by telephone. “The other parties won no seats.”

Cambodia woke to another chapter of rule by strongman Hun Sen on Monday, a day after an election that was heavily criticised by rights groups, the United States and other Western countries.

The White House said it would consider steps, including an expansion of visa restrictions placed on some Cambodian government members, in response to “flawed elections” in which there was no significant challenger to Hun Sen.

Critics say the election was a backward step for democracy in Cambodia following the dissolution last year of the main opposition Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP) and the jailing of its leader, Kem Sokha, on treason charges.

Former CNRP president Sam Rainsy, who lives in exile, said the election was a “hollow” victory for Hun Sen, a former Khmer Rouge commander who has ruled Cambodia for nearly 33 years.

The United States has imposed visa curbs on some Cambodian government members over a crackdown on critics and levied sanctions in June on a high-ranking official close to Hun Sen.

The European Union has threatened Cambodia with economic sanctions.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Sunday’s vote “failed to represent the will of the Cambodian people”.

“The flawed elections, which excluded the country’s principal opposition party, represents the most significant setback yet to the democratic system enshrined in Cambodia’s constitution,” Sanders said. The election campaign was marred by threats from national and local leaders, she said.

“The United States will consider additional steps to respond to the elections and other recent setbacks to democracy and human rights in Cambodia, including a significant expansion of the visa restrictions announced on December 6, 2017,” Sanders said.

Government spokesman Phay Siphan said the White House statement was an attempt to intimidate Cambodia.

CNRP Deputy Director of Foreign Affairs Monovithya Kem told a news conference in Jakarta on Monday the party welcomed the White House statement and hoped others would follow suit.

The CNRP also called on the international community to reject the result of the election.

“29 July 2018 marked the death of democracy in Cambodia, a dark new day in recent history,” said CNRP vice president Mu Sochua. “The result announced by the CPP and the National Election Committee must be fully rejected by the international community.”

Newspaper headlines in Cambodia on Monday greeted Hun Sen’s victory.

“CPP Dominates Election: Unofficial results show ruling party will increase its majority in the National Assembly,” said the pro-government Khmer Times newspaper.

Some independent media were targeted by Hun Sen and his allies in a pre-election crackdown.

More than 82 per cent of those registered to vote cast a ballot, according to the National Election Committee. Turnout was 90 per cent in the 2017 local election and 69.61 per cent in the previous general election in 2013.

Polling stations visited by Reuters in the capital, Phnom Penh, were quiet on Sunday and some voters said they voted because not doing so would land them in trouble.

The CNRP had called on voters to boycott the election but authorities warned anyone doing so would be seen as a traitor.

At the Kapkor Market in Phnom Penh, Meas Sinuon, 60, said she was pleased with Sunday’s result.

“This government has done good things already,” she said as she shopped for groceries. “But I want the new government to do more to help the people.”

Another voter, a Phnom Penh tuk-tuk driver who declined to be identified, described the result as “same same”.

Unofficial election results are expected in mid-August.


Pak to pay off Chinese, IMF No!

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned on Monday that any potential International Monetary Fund bailout for Pakistan’s new government should not provide funds to pay off Chinese lenders.

In an interview with CNBC television, Pompeo said the United States looked forward to engagement with the government of Pakistan’s expected new prime minister, Imran Khan, but said there was “no rationale” for a bailout that pays off Chinese loans to Pakistan.

“Make no mistake. We will be watching what the IMF does,” Pompeo said. “There’s no rationale for IMF tax dollars, and associated with that American dollars that are part of the IMF funding, for those to go to bail out Chinese bondholders or China itself,” Pompeo said.

The Financial Times reported on Sunday that senior Pakistani finance officials were drawing up options for Khan to seek an IMF bailout of up to $12 billion.

An IMF spokeswoman said: “We can confirm that we have so far not received a request for a Fund arrangement from Pakistan and that we have not had discussions with the authorities about any possible intentions.”

Pakistan is struggling to avert a currency crisis that has presented the new government with its biggest challenge. Many analysts and business leaders expect that another IMF bailout, the second in five years, will be needed to plug an external financing gap.

Pakistan, which already has around $5 billion in loans from China and its banks to fund major infrastructure projects, had sought another $1 billion in loans to stabilise its plummeting foreign currency reserves.

Officials in the Trump administration, including US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, have criticised China’s infrastructure lending to developing countries, arguing that this has saddled them with unsustainable debt.

The $57 China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, a series of port and rail improvements associated with China’s One Belt One Road infrastructure push, has led to massive imports of Chinese equipment and materials, swelling Pakistan’s current account deficit.

Pakistan has had 14 IMF financing programs since 1980, according to fund data, including a $6.7 billion three-year loan program in 2013.


Zimbabwe MDC done well

HARARE: Zimbabwe’s main opposition leader said on his official Twitter feed on Tuesday his party had collected results from more than 10,000 polling stations, which showed the MDC had done exceedingly well and was ready to form the next government.

Nelson Chamisa, 40, and 75-year-old President Emmerson Mnangagwa were the main contenders in Monday’s election, the first since long-ruling Robert Mugabe was removed in a bloodless coup in November.

Counting began in Zimbabwe on Monday in the first election since the removal of former president Mugabe, a watershed vote that could pull a pariah state back into the international fold and spark an economic revival.

The election was seen as a two-horse race between Mnangagwa, a long-time Mugabe ally, and Chamisa, a lawyer and pastor who is vying to become Zimbabwe’s youngest head of state.

Mnangagwa was viewed as the frontrunner, though the latest opinion polls showed a tight race. There will be a runoff on Sept 8 if no candidate wins more than half the votes.

Voting closed at 7pm (1700 GMT) on Monday. The official result has to be announced within five days but a likely indication of the outcome is expected today.

Zimbabwe’s electoral commission said voter turnout had averaged 75 per cent, higher than in the last vote in 2013.

Zimbabweans also elected 210 members of parliament and more than 9,000 councillors.

The election winner faces the task of putting Zimbabwe back on track after 37 years of Mugabe rule tainted by corruption, mismanagement and diplomatic isolation that caused a crisis in a country that once had one of Africa’s most promising economies.

A credible vote is essential if Zimbabwe is to exit painful sanctions and secure the donor funding and investment needed to stem chronic cash shortages.

Chamisa said Monday the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) was impeding voting in urban areas where he enjoys strong support but gave no evidence to back the claim.

“The people’s will being negated & undetermined due to these deliberate and unnecessary delays,” he said in a tweet. The ZEC was not immediately available to comment. It has denied Chamisa’s previous allegations of bias.

Reuters spoke to several international observers who said the voting process had been slow at some stations but it did not appear to them to be intentional.

Chamisa said his Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) would win if there was no “ballot mischief”, making it likely he will challenge the outcome if Mnangagwa prevails. A contested result is likely to lead to street protests and possible violence.

EU chief observer Elmar Brok said many voters, particularly young women, left voting queues in frustration at long delays. The EU has not yet concluded how to judge the vote, he said.

Dozens of people were killed ahead of a runoff in 2008 between Mugabe and MDC-founder Morgan Tsvangirai, who died of cancer in February.

Mugabe, 94, led the war for independence and since 1980 has dominated the country’s politics. But since he stepped down under military pressure in November he has lived in obscurity.

He emerged on the eve of the election to announce he would vote for the opposition, surprising Mnangagwa who accused him of striking a deal with Chamisa.

Media agencies


The 35 constituencies where the number of rejected votes is higher than the winning margin is just the tip of the vote-tampering iceberg. We urge the ECP in our mtg to urgently look into many such constituencies where recount and consolidation was done blatantly unfairly #PPP.

Major parties in the opposition on Monday held a meeting and decided to form a grand opposition for formulating a strategy on alleged rigging in the July 25 General Election.

Addressing media, senior leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, Pakistan Peoples’ Party, Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal and Awami National Party said there is no parallel of rigging on this scale in elections in the country, in which Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Imran Khan claimed victory.

PPP’s Yousaf Raza Gilani and MMA chief Fazlur Rehman also decried media censorship.

“The entire world, the nation and ECP [Election Commission of Pakistan] should note that there is no instance of all parties rejecting election results unanimously like this ever,” said Fazl.

Those stealing the mandate of masses should be ashamed of themselves, he said.

Gilani said that an all parties conference would be held soon, and a strategy would be formulated to take up the issue of rigging.

The parties will play the role of a strong opposition inside and outside the Parliament, the former prime minister added.

The decision to form a grand alliance was taken during ongoing meetings of the parties at the residence of Ayaz Sadiq. The political parties also agreed to protest inside and outside the assemblies.

The grand opposition will issue a white paper over rigging during the elections and meet for an All Parties Conference in two days.

The strength of the grand opposition will stand at 120 in the National Assembly, compared to 116 seats for the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

According to sources, political parties in Balochistan will also be taken into confidence over the grand opposition alliance. Meanwhile, Maulana Fazlur Rehman has announced that the MMA will not boycott proceedings of the parliament.

The PPP delegation was led by Khursheed Shah includes Sherry Rehman, Naveed Qamar and Qamar Zaman Kaira, and former prime minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf.

PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif led his party’s delegation which includes Khawaja Saad Rafique, Khawaja Asif among others.

Haji Ghulam Bilour and Mian Iftikhar are representing the ANP, while Maulana Fazlur Rehman and Maulana Anas Noorani are representing the MMA.

It is expected that following the meeting, Shehbaz Sharif will meet his brother and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who was shifted from Adiala prison to PIMS hospital in Islamabad on Sunday.

Over 35 constituencies’ results manipulated for Imran’s victory: Shah

PPP leader Khursheed Shah claimed over 35 constituencies were manipulated to pave way for Imran’s victory.

Manipulation “was carried out in constituencies of Yousaf Raza Gilani, Rasool Bux Chandio, Faisal Saleh Hayat, Aijaz Jakhrani and Saad Rafique,” he said.

 General Election 2018, the ball seems to be in the court of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf as the party claimed on Monday that it has garnered enough members to form governments both in the centre and Punjab.

According to PTI Spokesman Fawad Chaudhry, the National Assembly is of around 328-330 members, out of which the PTI currently enjoys support of 168 members, including women and minority seats.

In the Punjab Assembly, the PTI spokesman claimed that the party has 180 seats to form a government. The provincial assembly generally comprises 371 members, although this time it is expected to have 360 MPAs.

The party spokesman said that with the aid of the coalition partners, the prime minister will be from the PTI.

Chaudhry further said that in Balochistan the PTI will form a coalition government, adding that the party has a two/third majority in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

“PTI will nominate CM Punjab and the decision will be taken by Imran Khan,” Fawad shared.

Candidates from our alliances will be made part of the cabinet, he added.

Fawad Chaudhry said that the independent candidates also signed an affidavit, stating that they weren’t forced to join the PTI.

The affidavits will be submitted to the ECP, he added.

Later in the day, a delegation of PML-Q arrived to meet PTI chief Imran Khan at his Bani Gala residence in the federal capital.

In the meeting, PTI leaders Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Jahangir Tareen, Asad Umar, Naeem-ul-Haq and others were present.

The PTI said that seven PML-Q members and one independent (total eight) gave support to the party in Punjab, bringing the tally to 149 members in the province.

According to a PTI press statement, Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain ensured complete support to Imran Khan.

The PML-Q has also rendered support to the PTI in the National Assembly.

PTI leader Jahangir Tareen has left for Karachi to meet with Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan leaders to gain its support. The MQM-P is pegged to give support of four of its members to the PTI.

Fawad Chaudhry, earlier talking to Geo News, had said that four more candidates pledged alliance to the party today.

He had said that the party was in contact with other independent candidates in Punjab.
