Mubarak: Israeli FM not welcome in Egypt

Tenuous Moves For White House On Israel
The White House confirmed on Tuesday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will visit the White House on May 18, followed by the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak the next week and Palestinian Authority President Mahmud Abbas two days later.
The grand mufti of Egypt has invited US President Barack Obama to address Muslims around the globe from Egypt’s Al Azhar mosque – one of the most important mosques in the Muslim world.
It is highly unusual for a non-Muslim to speak at the mosque, according to World Net Daily news website, and an Egyptian official it contacted could not think of any non-Muslim world leader who had previously received an invitation.
Which telegraphs by implication of the invitation that the Mufti views Obamanable as Muslim.

Peace through Security:
America's Role in the Development of the Palestinian Authority Security Services
Featuring US Lt. Gen. Keith Dayton:
We have also graduated, now, three battalions -- an average of five hundred men each -- from JIPTC and another battalion is currently in training. The graduates have also been extensively schooled by the Jordanians, who have really stepped up to this task, on loyalty to the Palestinian flag and the Palestinian people. And what we have created -- and I say this in humility -- but what we have created are new men. The average age of the graduates is twenty to twenty-two years, and these young men, when they graduate, and their officers believe that their mission is to build a Palestinian state. So if you don't like the idea of a Palestinian state, you won't like the rest of this talk. But if you like the idea of a Palestinian state, listen on. . . .

Swat plea for rescue as Zardari and Brown discuss Pakistan aid crisis

Terrified civilians trapped in the Swat Valley begged to be rescued today as the Pakistan Army prepared for its biggest confrontation yet with the Taleban.

Their pleas came as Asif Ali Zardari, the Pakistani President, was due to meet Gordon Brown at 10 Downing Sreet. The two leaders were expected to discuss the military situation and Mr Zardari will ask for aid to deal with the humanitarian crisis developing in northwest Pakistan.

Up to 4,000 Taleban fighters are in control of Mingora, Swat's main town, and have executed seven people on suspicion of being army informers, leaving their bodies unburied in the main square.

Residents said today that the extremists were digging trenches and planting mines as they prepared for the encircling troops to begin their offensive. Army jets and helicopters buzzed over the valley and strafed Taleban positions, and more troops were parachuted into the war zone.

NYT:A General Steps From the Shadows
BEHOLD as he moves so easily from "the dark" to "the light":
In Iraq, where he oversaw secret commando operations for five years, former intelligence officials say that he had an encyclopedic, even obsessive, knowledge about the lives of terrorists, and that he pushed his ranks aggressively to kill as many of them as possible.

But General McChrystal has also moved easily from the dark world to the light. Fellow officers on the Joint Chiefs of Staff, where he is director, and former colleagues at the Council on Foreign Relations describe him as a warrior-scholar, comfortable with diplomats, politicians and the military man who would help promote him to his new job.

“He’s lanky, smart, tough, a sneaky stealth soldier,” said Maj. Gen. William Nash, a retired officer. “He’s got all the Special Ops attributes, plus an intellect

Iran very close to nukes:
"Iran is at the moment very close to getting a military nuclear arsenal," Amos Yadlin told parliament's foreign affairs and defence committee, adding that "Iran can manage to stabilise its military nuclear programme by 2010."

"The Iranian strategy was not to get the international community against it, but to discreetly continue nuclear armament without crossing red lines," he was quoted by Israeli media as saying.

Yadlin also excluded the possibility of war in the region in the coming year. Israeli officials have said several times that they were keeping all options on the table in dealing with Tehran's nuclear ambitions.

Proud Russia hosts Eurovision extravaganza
Proud Russia purged the Georgian entry:
On 11 March 2009, Georgia withdrew from the Eurovision Song Contest 2009, refusing to change the song lyrics and alleging that the decision to ask Georgia to revise its entry came about as a result of pressure from Russia, although no evidence of pressure being applied has been provided.

Russia, US elected to UN’s human rights body:

Russia received 146 votes out of the 192 possible. The US, which got elected to the council for the first time, won 167 votes.

Russia, however, was criticized for political manipulation, the virtual elimination of influential opposition parties, and severe limitations on the press.

Russia approves national security strategy until 2020
It maintains, in particular, that the policy pursued by "a number of leading countries, aimed at achieving military supremacy, primarily in nuclear forces," poses a threat to Russia's security.

It also states that other threats include non-compliance by certain countries with arms control agreements, as well as actions that destabilize civilian and military command and control systems.


Russian FM Lavrov optimistic on arms control deal with US
As well he should be. Woe unto us.

Russian FM Lavrov in March:
Russia's foreign minister is reportedly saying the country will soon deliver 50 armored vehicles to the Palestinian Authority.

The Interfax news agency quoted Sergey Lavrov as saying Monday that Russia would provide the Palestinians the vehicles in the very near future. He spoke during a flight to Spain from Egypt, where he met with other leaders from the Quartet seeking Mideast peace - the United States, Russia, the United Nations and European Union.
Based on what I posted yesterday on the United States of Palestine Comrade Lavrov actually delivered these vehicles to an American created and led force, and he knows it.
Now what does that tell you?

Zardari Govt. Turns Down Uranium Deal For Pakistan

Pakistani officials won’t confirm the report, which is being made public here for the first time. But sometime around late 2008, interlocutors from Pakistan and Kazakhstan apparently reached an agreement under which uranium-rich Kazakhstan agreed to sell nuclear fuel to Pakistan. A government source referred to a Central Asian nation without naming it during an off-the-record conversation. She was most probably referring to Kazakhstan.

Kazakhstan has the world’s largest reservoirs of uranium and will soon become its biggest producer.

Pakistan is the world’s seventh declared nuclear power and has an ambitious civilian nuclear energy program meant to help fuel Pakistan’s economic growth. The country’s biggest stock exchange at Karachi has been one of the best performing markets in Asia for the most part of this decade, fetching high profit margins for Pakistani and foreign investors. Pakistan cannot continue growth without more energy.

The deal apparently preceded the agreement India signed with Kazakhstan in January 2009 in which New Delhi reportedly agreed to buy up to 2,500 tons of uranium.

Mounting Concerns Over Detained Uzbekistan Pastor
An international protest was underway Tuesday, May 12, to obtain the release of a detained, frail, evangelical pastor in Uzbekistan, who came to symbolize what rights investigators described as widespread persecution of Christians and other minorities in Central Asia.

Dmitry Shestakov, pastor of the registered 'Full Gospel Congregation' in the town of Andijan, has been suffering of serious health problems since he was moved to a notorious labor camp in 2007, confirmed advocacy group Open Doors, which closely monitored the case.

US Eyes Bank Pay Overhaul

US FDIC seeking quick, narrow resolution authority
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp is talking with lawmakers about speedy legislation that could give it the power to wind down troubled bank holding companies, but not a broader range of financial firms, according to a source familiar with agency plans.

The Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury Department have some disagreement with the FDIC about exactly what new powers the agency should gain, the source said, speaking anonymously because the meetings have been private.

The FDIC has been meeting in recent days with lawmakers' staff, at the request of Congress, about so-called "resolution authority."

The FDIC currently has the power to seize depository banks, but does not have similar authority for non-banks, including bank holding companies such as Citigroup Inc (C.N: Quote, Profile, Research) and GMAC, which have both received billions of dollars in government aid.

Treasury Secretary Geithner told Reuters on Friday the government would likely have to provide "substantial" additional capital to GMAC.

Please recall Zoellick was formerly employed by both the State Dept & The Gold Man
There is still a high degree of uncertainty regarding the outlook for the global economy, although Chinese growth could surprise on the upside, World Bank President Robert Zoellick said on Tuesday.

Speaking at the start of a two-day International Finance Corporation (IFC) conference on global private equity, Zoellick said views on the world economy's health ranged from cautious optimism that the pace of decline was slowing to lingering concerns over low capacity utilization.

"China might surprise on the upside. It acted quickly and aggressively to stimulate demand. It has had some pretty good first numbers," said Zoellick.

Plouffe Daddy Featured Speaker at Howard University
The inaugural fundraising event for Howard University's Center for Excellence in Advertising will be held Thursday at New World Stages in New York. David Plouffe, chief campaign strategist for President Barack Obama, will speak during a private, invitation-only breakfast on the topic of "Diversity: The Ultimate ROI."
OK so WTF is ROI?
In finance, rate of return (ROR), also known as return on investment (ROI), rate of profit or sometimes just return, is the ratio of money gained or lost (realized or unrealized) on an investment relative to the amount of money invested. The amount of money gained or lost may be referred to as interest, profit/loss, gain/loss, or net income/loss. The money invested may be referred to as the asset, capital, principal, or the cost basis of the investment. ROI is usually expressed as a percentage rather than a fraction.

Obama's Interior nominee expected to be rejected by Senate
Republican objections to Hayes appear to have little to do with him or his qualifications and more to do with an Obama administration policy.

Specifically, Utah Republican Robert Bennett has been leading his party's opposition to Hayes because of an Obama decision to cancel oil and gas leases in Utah.

"This is not about Hayes," Bennett spokeswoman Tara Hendershott told CNN.

New US trade chief Kirk meets WTO boss Lamy
Yeah but did he boldly go where no man has gone before?
New U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk held talks on Tuesday with the head of the World Trade Organization (WTO) as part of his visit to Geneva to hear the views of America's trading partners.

Kirk is due to hold a news conference on Wednesday at 0800 GMT, and neither he nor WTO Director-General Pascal Lamy were willing to comment to reporters after the talks.

But the rapport between the former Dallas mayor and the ascetic Frenchman was clearly good as Lamy joked with Kirk and pointed out murals of the heroes of labor in the WTO's lakeside headquarters.

President Barack Obama's administration is conducting a review of trade policy, and Kirk's meetings will feed into that.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Sanofi-Aventis builds Dengue fever vaccine plant

Behold a nascent future "EPIDEMIC"
and remember.. you read it here first!

Sanofi-Aventis SA began work Tuesday on a euro350 million ($477 million) plant that is to be devoted to production of the world's first vaccine against dengue fever, a public health threat for some two-fifths of the worlds population.

The company says its vaccine plant in this town north of the French city of Lyon is the largest single industrial investment it has ever made. By 2013 it is hoped the plant will begin turning out a dengue vaccine that the company is currently testing.

Dengue is a potentially lethal mosquito-borne infection whose spread has grown dramatically in recent decades, according to the World Health Organization. There is currently no available vaccine

They do not spend all that money for there to be no FUTURE MARKET for the PRODUCT.

Senate confirms FEMA director
The Senate confirmed Craig Fugate last night as FEMA director after Sen. David Vitter (R., La.) agreed to stop blocking the vote amid bipartisan criticism that the agency was left vulnerable with hurricane season just a few weeks away. Fugate, a former Florida emergency management chief, was approved to take over the Federal Emergency Management Agency on a voice vote. He had garnered broad bipartisan support.
I will be researching Fugate today.

71,000 to greet Obama today
I got a greeting for Obama. Right here.
President Barack Obama returns to Arizona State University today to rally graduates sobered by bleak job prospects and tout the value of higher education and public service.

Obama will deliver the commencement address during what has evolved into a Sun Devil Stadium extravaganza that will pit his trademark soaring oratory against the Valley's soaring temperatures. Many of the 71,000 people expected for the speech will wait for hours in searing triple-digit heat to hear a speech that will last about 20 minutes.

The president is expected to "discuss the amazing opportunity that graduates have, the challenging world that they enter into," said Robert Gibbs, White House press secretary. As he has done before, he is likely to talk about the importance of "the choices that you make leaving college, about being involved in your community and serving a purpose higher than yourself."

Later this month, Obama will deliver commencement addresses at the University of Notre Dame and the U.S. Naval Academy.
