Israeli officer punches Muslim worshiper in the face as clashes continue near Temple Mount (VIDEO)
Published time: 20 Jul, 2017 00:08

*Israeli police used stun grenades to disperse a crowd of Palestinian protesters who clashed with authorities for the fourth day
running following the introduction of new security measures at Jerusalem's sacred Temple Mount or Noble Sanctuary as referred to by Muslims.
Clashes erupted Wednesday shortly after the afternoon prayers near the Lions Gate to the Old City of Jerusalem,
where up 200 Muslim worshippers gathered to pray.

Following the prayers, a few worshipers started shouting against the recent security upgrades at the site, holy to both Muslims and Jews.
After being warned by police to leave the area, a small group refused.
The authorities began arresting one of the worshipers for “disturbing the peace” which led the larger crowd to start throwing water bottles at police officers.

To quell the steadily growing discontent, police used stun grenades to disperse the crowd, the Times of Israel reported.
An online video also showed a police officer punching an apparently peaceful worshiper in the face.
Clashes around the compound have been ongoing following the introduction of metal detectors along the perimeter of the holy site Sunday.
Tel Aviv argues that the security upgrades will prevent weapons from being brought to the Temple Mount as referred to by Jews.*

Hungary sides with Poland in EU row, tells Brussels ‘not to overstep authority’
Published time: 20 Jul, 2017 21:00

*The Hungarian foreign ministry has declared its support for Poland which is under fire from the European Commission over its domestic judicial reforms.
“We stand by Poland, and we call on the European Commission not to overstep its authority,” Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto
said in a statement Thursday as quoted by Reuters.

Budapest pointed out that Brussels should not “act like a political body” and criticized it for attempting to interfere in the domestic affairs of other states.
Earlier, the EU body threatened to sanction Warsaw for its proposed overhaul of the judiciary,
citing Brussels’ “grave concerns” over the changes currently considered by Poland’s upper house.

If approved, the new measures will empower parliament and the justice minister to appoint judges to the Polish Supreme Court –
which Brussels sees as a threat to the judiciary’s independence.

“We are coming very close to triggering Article 7,” the European Commission First Vice President Frans Timmermans warned,
referring to an EU document which enables the EU to suspend a member state of certain rights, including voting rights, in the European Council.

But a defiant Warsaw has fired back, vowing to defend its proposed measures in Europe’s highest court.
Its foreign ministry said it’s ready for a dialogue, but would not accept what it sees as an “ultimatum” from Brussels.*

Warsaw and Budapest have recently been embroiled in another row with Brussels.
This time, after the EU accused Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic of not fulfilling their obligations in managing Europe’s migrant and refugee crisis as outlined in its 2015 plan.

Charging that the three EU member states have not taken “the necessary action,” the European Commission launched infringement proceedings
against Warsaw, Budapest and Prague in June.*

.../ anything to fuck up the European Union is good in my book. Way to go Poland !!  Way to go Czech Republic !!  Way to go Hungary !! :) :) :)

China in Africa: Old powers sidelined as Beijing follows economic ties with first military base
Published time: 10 Aug, 2017 15:41

*The opening of China’s first military base in Africa gives an additional foothold in a region where it already has much sway, thanks to economic ties.
Some commentators see Africa as Beijing’s chance to preserve its manufacturing dominance for future generations.
In a joint ceremony with a local honor guard, Chinese troops last week opened their new naval base in Djibouti,
a tiny nation in East Africa which already leases land to several facilities of foreign militaries.
The Chinese troops are stationed right next to the Pentagon’s only permanent base in Africa, as well as Japanese, French and Italian forces.

Shortly before the opening, Beijing suggested that it may deploy its troops on Djibouti’s border with Eritrea in the north,
where the two African nations contest sovereignty over a mountain and an island.
The hypothetical deployment would fill a vacuum left behind by some 450 Qatari peacekeeping troops,
who were withdrawn in June amid the kingdom’s diplomatic spat with other Arab nations.**

*** Here is a perfect example how bullshit in the media is created and spread.
      How the TIMES lied and twisted the story to make RT look bad.

Times believes RT’s entirely factual reporting of NatWest decision to shut UK accounts was fake news.
Published time: 11 Aug, 2017 15:29

*British newspaper the Times is apparently preparing to brand RT’s coverage of a story on the intended closure of its accounts
with a British government-owned bank an example of fake news meant to further Kremlin policies. RT sets out the facts.*

*The story began in 2016, when the National Westminster Bank (NatWest) sent a letter to Russia Today TV UK Ltd,
the sole provider of all of RT’s operations in the UK, stating that it will no longer provide banking services to it.
The letter stated that the entire Royal Bank of Scotland Group, of which NatWest is part,
would no longer be available for RT and that the decision was final and not subject to discussion.

RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan shared the news on her Twitter feed. Many commenters voiced outrage over the decision,
which was perceived as an attack on a media outlet that often went against the narrative prevailing in the mainstream British media.
The fact that RBS is controlled by the British Treasury led some to believe that the decision may have been influenced by the British government.

The imminent closure received worldwide media coverage and was commented on by senior Russian officials, including Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
Ultimately NatWest chose to reverse the decision.*
/... this is just a partial quote from the article/

.../ but the story goes on. This whole article is a very good read, especially if you are paying attention to sequences how the story developed
    and it's twists and turns and how easily we the recipients of the news could be tricked and made believe total 100% bullshit
    {in this case in relation to credibility of RT News}
THERE ARE SOME IDIOTS ON BELLGAB WHO INSIST that everything that comes from RT is a pure lie.
Here you can see how wrong you are and how stupid is your attitude towards RT and it's news delivery from all over the World.
I trust RT 100% more than CNN. ( can take that to the bank)

Largest UK Navy carrier security under review after amateur lands drone on deck undetected.
Published time: 12 Aug, 2017 15:31

*Security will be reviewed at the aircraft carrier ‘HMS Queen Elizabeth’ after a photo enthusiast landed a small drone
aboard the largest ship in the Royal Navy and remained undetected, the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) said
The incident happened when the ‘Queen Elizabeth’, which is to be commissioned by the Royal Navy later this year,
was docked in the Scottish port of Invergordon in July.

A local amateur photographer saw the arrival of the warship, which cost the £3 billion (US$3.9 billion), as a great opportunity to obtain some footage.
The man, who opted to remain anonymous, told the Daily Mail he was “amazed” that he managed to land
his DJI Phantom quadcopter drone aboard the 70,000-tonne vessel and then take off again without being detected.

“There was no-one about to prevent it from landing although there were security police around in small boats who were waving at the drone…
There was absolutely no one around when I landed, it was like a ghost ship,” the photographer told the Daily Mail.

In a separate interview with the BBC, he said: “I could have been anybody… I could have carried 2 kilos of Semtex [plastic explosive] and left it on the deck.”*

.../ bwaha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha  -fucking British cunts.
      York pud, I guess all the military personnel was busy being fucked under the deck in the ass by muslim immigrants.. lol  ::)

Trust RT (Putin's mouthpiece) putting explosion in quotes, implying it wasn't. Maybe it was an overactive thyroid?  Or an avalanche? Could it have been a burst tyre? was an explosion, the theory so far a faulty fridge. Nothing to see kids....
