1…………> Convoluted Geography: China
In a blatant disregard of international law and freedom of navigation, and an arrogant attempt to nullify the ruling by an arbitrage tribunal ruling regarding pirating lands of sovereign states, China’s will establish control over vast territories of the South China Sea by using a new draft boundary that would claim the right to a wide range of activities in the area, including fishing, natural resources extraction and the construction of military installations.
“If China does indicate its claims in the South China Sea with a continuous line which joins up the nine dashes, it would represent a complete repudiation of the July 2016 arbitrage tribunal ruling,” Dr Ian J. Storey, senior fellow with Yusof Ishak Institute in Singapore, warned that changes to the nine-dash line may undermine regional stability.
The “Fake News” media has been salivating about the good chemistry between President Trump, and China’s “Cult of Personality” Mr. Xi, and predicting a “Nobel Prize” for Comrade Un and Mr. Trump’s expected “de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula”, forgetting that the brand of communism preached by Most Reverend Mr.Xi is a relentless application of force and disregard to human rights.
2…………> Hamas Scientist Hit: Malaysia
Fadi al-Batsh, a “Scientist of Palestine’s youth scholars”, a “loyal” member of Hamas, and well known to be an expert on drones and rockets was gunned down by two men on a motorcycle who fired 10 shots as he walked to morning prayers in Kuala Lumpur. A Malaysian official said the suspects and victim may have worked for intelligence agencies, prompting concern that he may have been assassinated.
The police chief said video footage from CCTV cameras near the scene of the shooting showed that two suspects waited for nearly 20 minutes in the area before attacking.
“We believe the lecturer was their target because two other individuals walked by the place earlier unharmed,” he said. “We will view the recordings of all the CCTV in the area to identify the suspects and get the registration number of the motorcycle.”
Batsh’s uncle, Jamal al-Batsh believed his nephew was killed by Israel’s espionage service.
It was “the Israeli Mossad. The Israeli Mossad stood behind the assassination of educated people and intellectuals because Israel knows Palestine will be liberated by scientists,” he said.
3…………> Muslim Holocaust: Silent Extermination
Refik Turan, head of the Turkish Historical Society, said that war is an inevitable fact of life, and evidence shows that some 12.5 million Muslims have been killed in wars during the last 25 years.
“Usually war is between two states, but there are wars within the country as well. The results of a war cannot be predicted. Wars are a fact of our lives,” he said at the “World Wars, Turkey and Syria on Unending Struggles for Power” conference.
“According to a recent research, the number of Muslims who died in the fights and wars in the world in the last 25 years have reached 12.5 million. This almost accounts for the losses in a World War.”
Dr. Turan also said that the U.S., Russia, and Iran do not want peace in Syria, and the net result is evident.
