Palestinians want right of return status
Straight outta the Baker Plan

PA officials 'surprised' by US Middle East plan
"The Palestinian position on these issues is very clear," explained another PA official. "We insist on the right of return for all refugees on the basis of United Nations resolution 194, and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with all of East Jerusalem, including the Old City, as its capital."
Al-Aqsa: PA not averse to OIC rule
RAMALLAH: The Palestinian Authority (PA) would be willing to relinquish Palestinian rights over the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound only if its sovereignty is transferred to the Jeddah-based Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) as part of a final-status agreement, sources said yesterday. The OIC is a signatory to the Arab peace initiative.

The Israeli daily Haaretz quoted the Palestinian sources as saying the PA was studying a proposed agreement that would provide the Palestinians with backing from all Muslim states on a historic compromise with Israel.

According to the proposal, the Al-Buraq Wall and the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City would be under Israeli sovereignty, while the Muslim, Christian and Armenian quarters would be transferred to Palestinian sovereignty.

Transferred to the "sovereignty" of a 60 year old propaganda op, to a "nation" that never existed.

FM's To Discuss Future OIC Peacekeeping Role In The Muslim World
Super Caliphatal Exigently Most Atrocious
Foreign ministers from Muslim countries meeting here (DAMASCUS) beginning Saturday are slated to examine a conceptual paper on the Organisation of the Islamic Conference's (OIC) future role in maintaining peace, security and resolving conflicts in member states.

The paper sets out from the premise that the Muslim world needs to have peacekeeping troops as myriad conflicts are waged within Muslim territories, not to mention that OIC members provide the largest contribution to United Nations (UN) peacekeeping forces, according to an OIC statement.

Damascus is hosting the 36th Session of the Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) of the Member States of the OIC from May 23 to 25, under the theme "Promoting Islamic Solidarity".

Malaysia will be represented at the gathering by Foreign Minister Datuk Anifah Aman.

The statement said the CFM would discuss a host of political issues, notably the Arab-Israeli conflict, with developments in the holy city of Al-Quds and Israel's relentless aggression against Palestinians topping the meeting's agenda.

Saudi Arabia ready to assist Tajikistan
In the course of the talks, Zarifi expressed gratitude to Saudi Arabia for support for holding of the 37th session of foreign ministers of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) member nations in Dushanbe in 2010.

Tajik minister noted that Tajikistan was one of the first in the Central Asian region to host such an important for Muslim countries event.

For his part, Prince Saud Al-Faisal stated that Saudi Arabia was ready to provide assistance to Tajikistan with holding of that session.
Tajikistan displays activity in cooperation with OIC, says OIC ...
I love the headline ... says OIC!
Displaying cooperative activity with the OIC is very good for health and most halal, my good Tajik friends, ulema and dhimmis!

In the document they agree, for instance, on the creation of an Aspa cultural committee, which will undertake cultural projects between the two regions.

The ministers are also going to offer, in their final statement in Rio, the support of Aspa to the global "Alliance of Civilizations" conference, which Brazil should host next year. The meeting will serve as a forum for deepening global religious and cultural dialogue. The ministers call on the Aspa countries to participate in the conference.

UN High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations Jorge Sampaio warned Thursday that relenting in the fight against discrimination and social exclusion will create conditions for social outbreaks of "unpredictable consequences."

Speaking at the opening ceremony of an international forum entitled Cultures Encounter: Listen to Integrate, Sampaio said some governments have devaluated cultural diversity on the pretext of the global financial crisis.

"In this time of sharp crisis, it is necessary, more than ever, for the authorities not to relegate the policies of good governance of cultural diversity, because they will create conditions for social outbreaks of unpredictable consequences," Sampaio said.

Good governance of cultural diversity cannot just be a celebration for one day or one year, and it must be the work of a generation, Sampaio added.

Gorbachev laments Russian rollback on democracy
Still scared shitless of KGB Vlad.
Gorbachev accused Russia's current government of trying to consolidate its grip on power and stifle opposition voices, but avoided specific mention of President Dmitry Medvedev or his predecessor Vladimir Putin, who is now prime minister.

"We have seen the step-by-step monopolization of political activities," Gorbachev said at a conference marking the 20th anniversary of the first democratically elected Soviet parliament.

The International Monetary Fund said its Deputy Managing Director Takatoshi Kato will visit Kazakhstan on May 28 after analysts said the country may need cash to stabilise its banks and to prevent shocks to its economy.
Its oil-dominated economy and highly leveraged banks have been hit hard by the global economic crisis that has put to an end a decade of strong growth in the ex-Soviet republic.
In a transcript of a briefing by External Relations Director Caroline Atkinson published late on Thursday, the IMF said one of its senior managers would visit Kazakhstan next week.
"Deputy Managing Director Takatoshi Kato is traveling to Kazakhstan ... for a discussion with the authorities and to attend a meeting of the Central Bank Governors Club for Central Asia, the Black Sea Region and the Balkan Countries," she said.

Floatin' Powa News Service: Obedience & Sacrifice ~

Fu Manchu
We Must Obey
"But I did obey the LORD," Saul said. "I went on the mission the LORD assigned me. I completely destroyed the Amalekites and brought back Agag their king. The soldiers took sheep and cattle from the plunder, the best of what was devoted to God, in order to sacrifice them to the LORD your God at Gilgal."

But Samuel replied:
"Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices
as much as in obeying the voice of the LORD ?
To obey is better than sacrifice,
and to heed is better than the fat of rams.
For rebellion is like the sin of divination,
and arrogance like the evil of idolatry.
Because you have rejected the word of the LORD,
he has rejected you as king."

Then Saul said to Samuel,
"I have sinned. I violated the LORD's command and your instructions.
I was afraid of the people and so I gave in to them.
Now I beg you, forgive my sin and come back with me, so that I may worship the LORD."

But Samuel said to him,
"I will not go back with you.
You have rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD has rejected you as king over Israel!"
~ 1 Samuel 15
In order to sacrifice them to the LORD your God at Gilgal :
The Gilgal: The Galilee, the circuit, the cycle, the whirlwind, the wheel; the place of Elijah's fabled school of prophecy, the place of Honi the Circle Maker & Yeshua the Nazarene, the House of the Perpetually Rolling Wheel.

PA Peace Plan: Iran to Share Rule over Temple Mount
PA sources said giving up claims to the Temple Mount and handing over control to the 57-member Saudi-based Islamic Conference Organization is conditional on Israel’s agreeing to a final status agreement.Iran, which is classified as Persian and not an Arab country, is part of the Islamic group. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has opposed agreeing to a new PA state without knowing ahead of time what it would entail.

"Obama Plan" to make Jerusalem Old City an "international zone"
The reports say that the new plan is basically an upgrade of the Saudi peace initiative, about which both Israel and the US have reservations in its current formulation. Obama's plan will reportedly include the establishment of a demilitarized sovereign Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital. The plan will also call for the Old City of Jerusalem to become an international zone under UN control.
Obama Wants Palestinian State Within 4 Years
United States President Barack Obama will call for a Palestinian state to be formed within four years and the internationalization of Jerusalem's Old City in an address to the Muslim world next month.

The U.S. president plans to use his much-anticipated June 4 address from Cairo to launch a comprehensive Middle East peace plan he devised with Jordanian King Abdullah II.

According to a report published Wednesday in the London-based daily al-Quds al-Arabi, the Obama-Abdullah plan calls for a demilitarized Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital, the internationalization of Jerusalem's Old City and a series of territorial exchanges between Israelis and Palestinians.
Ha'aretz: Obama is dividing Jerusalem

US Promised Jerusalem Will Be Palestine's Capital
A version also appearing in YNET.
Of course they have promised them this.
In the words of US General Keith Dayton, "they can't be strung along forever..."
The Palestinian Authority (PA) has been assured that US President Barack Obama's new peace plan includes a Palestinian state with its capital in Jerusalem.

PA officials told the Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot that the US intends to stand by its policy that East Jerusalem should be the Palestinian capital. Obama is expected to roll out the peace plan in Cairo on 4 June.
Israel PM: Jerusalem will not be divided:

Russian FM to visit Syria amid push for peace
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, whose country has been pressing to revive the dormant Middle East peace process, is to visit Syria at the weekend, Russian diplomatic sources said on Thursday.

Lavrov arrives on Friday to attend as an observer a ministerial meeting of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC), which opens on Saturday in the Syrian capital and runs to Monday, they said.

Russia, a member of the Middle East diplomatic quartet and president of the 15-member Security Council for May, has been pressing for years to host an international Middle East peace conference.

"The Zionist entity is not legitimate, and will not be legitimate in any situation," Nasrallah said. "Its existence is the heart of the Middle East the central reason for the breaking out of every war and crisis in the region."

Cromitie met with the informant in Newburgh, about 70 miles north of New York, and told him he was upset about the war in Afghanistan because his parents had lived there, according to the complaint.

Cromitie also allegedly said he was angry about the deaths of numerous Muslims in Afghanistan and Pakistan at the hands of U.S. military forces.

SEC Votes to Propose New Investor Powers
A divided Securities and Exchange Commission split along party lines Wednesday, voting 3-2 to propose new rules that would empower shareholders in certain cases to nominate directors to corporate boards.

The proposal, which SEC Chairman Mary Schapiro has made among her top priorities on the agenda for the year, serves to give shareholders a more direct way to address concerns they may have about issues such as executive compensation or a company's risk management practices.

Executive compensation has become a controversial issue during the financial crisis, especially after it was revealed that American International Group, which received a bailout, paid bonuses to employees in the division that nearly caused its collapse.

(FED) Testimony by David W. Wilcox
In addition, it is important to note three key characteristics of the Federal Reserve’s responses to the financial crisis thus far. First, the statutory authority under which the Federal Reserve has taken many of its policy actions sets a high bar for the exercise of extraordinary powers. In particular, before lending can be extended under section 13(3) of the Federal Reserve Act, the Board of Governors must find that "unusual and exigent circumstances" prevail. This provision assures that the Federal Reserve will not be involved in financial markets in these extraordinary ways unless market functioning is significantly impaired. Second, the Federal Reserve has been mindful of the need to protect both it and federal taxpayers from credit losses.

Pension chief takes the fifth
Charles E. F. Millard, who until January ran the federal agency that insures the private pension plans of 44 million Americans, today refused to testify before a Senate panel that is investigating his role in the awarding of contracts under which the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp.'s insurance fund was being shifted into riskier investments.

Millard invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination as the agency reported that its deficit had tripled in the last six months to $33 billion, even as it faces the prospect of taking over pension plans of automakers and other troubled companies. The increased deficit was due to a combination of factors, including $3 billion in investment losses during the recent stock market crash and a variety of obligations.

The Implications of US Debt
Federal financial fascism on the march:
A federal government backstop to the states and localities is being contemplated. Sooner or later America’s fiscal policies will cause a sell-off of the dollar, at which time it will be probably unbearably tempting to trick up some international chaos in the form of some sort of war or terrorist event to drive investors back to the good old greenback. In this context, Paul Krugman’s lecturing of the Chinese on currency valuations (who took us off the gold standard, Paul?) is truly bellicose. See Krugman in China for this story.

Pop Goes the Pipeline
On April 9, a major pipeline that carries Turkmenistan's vast natural gas resources to Russia exploded in a massive fireball. According to the Turkmen Foreign Ministry, the blast was caused by a "reckless and irresponsible" decrease in the amount of gas drawn from the pipeline by Russia's state-owned energy company, Gazprom. Pipeline and energy infrastructure explosions are a common occurrence in the former Soviet Union, with hundreds of sometimes devastating incidents every year.

FBI Use of Patriot Act Authority Increased Dramatically in 2008
And GOD, I know, I'm one.... [PRESS PLAY]
FISA-court authorizations for national security and counter-terrorism wiretaps dropped last year by almost 300, a new Justice Department report to Congress shows. But the FBI’s use of “national security letters” to get information on Americans without a court order increased dramatically, from 16,804 in 2007 to 24,744 in 2008. The 2008 requests targeted 7,225 U.S. people.

FY 2010 Budget for the Department of State: Hillary Clinton
And that's why we're requesting $323 million for the Civilian Stabilization Initiative, and that includes expansion of the Civilian Response Corps....

FACT SHEET: State Department’s Civilian Police and Rule of Law Programs
This is the "initiative" that made Dayton's Palestinian Army possible. The one they are now using right now as a threat designed to force Israel to split Jerusalem:

Palestinian Authority

INL is working with the U.S. Security Coordinator in Jerusalem to enhance the capabilities of the Palestinian Authority Security Forces in the West Bank. Our assistance is focused on providing basic, leadership, and refresher training for the National Security Forces and the Presidential Guard. We are also upgrading their training facilities and providing non-lethal equipment to support their operations. Another INL project involves working with the Palestinian Authority to develop a Strategic Planning Directorate in the Ministry of Interior to enhance the Ministry’s long-term capacity for planning, oversight, and reform.

Civilian Stabilization Initiative?
National Security Directive #44?

WTF is a National Security Directive 44?
SUBJECT: Mananagement of Interagency Efforts Concerning Reconstruction and Stabilization Introduction The purpose of this Directive is to promote the security of the United States through improved coordination, planning, and implementation for reconstruction and stabilization assistance for foreign states and regions at risk of, in, or in transition from conflict or civil strife.

Policy: The United States has a significant stake in enhancing the capacity to assist in stabilizing and reconstructing countries or regions, especially those at risk of, in, or in transition from conflict or civil strife, and to help them establish a sustainable path toward peaceful societies, democracies, and market economies. The United States should work with other countries and organizations to anticipate state failure, avoid it whenever possible, and respond quickly and effectively when necessary and appropriate to promote peace, security, development, democratic practices, market economies, and the rule of law. Such work should aim to enable governments abroad to exercise sovereignty over their own territories and to prevent those territories from being used as a base of operations or safe haven for extremists, terrorists, organized crime groups, or others who pose a threat to U.S. foreign policy, security, or economic interests.
I decided to add the word DOMESTIC to the term "Civilian Stabilization Initiative" and do another search:

The terms seems to originate with James Baker's Orwellian "Institute for Peace", home of the Iraq Study Group. Now why am I not surprised?
Domestic Agencies in Reconstruction and Stabilization: The "4th D"
In the Reconstruction and Stabilization (R&S) community, the terms "interagency" and "whole-of-government" generally refer to the Department of Defense (DoD), Department of State (DoS), and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), plus a few domestic agencies. In recognition of their dominant role, the 2006 National Security Strategy calls them the "3 D’s" of defense, diplomacy and development. The "4th D" means the remainder of the interagency community, composed of hundreds of departments, agencies, boards, commissions, and programs in the following categories.
There's an "R & S Community"? Who knew?
More from Baker's site

For those who want to claim this is an Obamanation, not true:

Again, he only FOLLOWS UP on GWB's hard work:
The House of Representatives and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee have both approved bills (HR 1084 and S 613) to authorize the new office and create a cadre of civilian professionals to provide reconstruction assistance in crisis situations. Unfortunately, Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) has placed a legislative hold on the bill, blocking a floor vote in the Senate. In his budget request for FY 09, President Bush has requested $249 million for the “Civilian Stabilization Initiative,” which would fund S/CRS and a three-tiered civilian response corps comprised of:

A 250-person rapidly deployable contingent, pulled primarily from State and USAID, as well as various other civilian agencies (i.e. Agriculture, Commerce, Justice, and Treasury);

A 2000-person standby contingent pulled from various federal agencies, but without rapid deployment capabilities;

A 2000-person voluntary reserve corps, which would draw U.S. civilians from state and local governments, and the private sector.

This corps would give civilians the opportunity to serve and support critical peacebuilding missions abroad.

In a bizarre turn of events, the Bush administration and a number of peace groups have found common ground on S/CRS. Washington based peace and security advocacy groups that strongly opposed the Bush Administration’s pre-emptive war on Iraq have now found themselves lobbying Congress to support the Administration’s funding request for S/CRS and the civilian response corps.

Swine flu outbreak reveals military plans, gaps
The rapid spread of swine flu from Mexico surprised Pentagon officials, who had been focused on a possible Asian-borne pandemic in a response plan that would give the military a last-resort role in helping to impose quarantines and border restrictions.

Drafted and overhauled several times in recent years, the military's closely guarded plan for an influenza pandemic assumed that officials would have more time before the flu hit U.S. shores. The Associated Press obtained briefing documents about the military's pandemic contingency plan.

Pandemic Contingency Plan?
Shit. Here we go again!
Be afraid, be very afraid. It appears to be a Homeland Security thing.

Federal Agency Pandemic Planning Implementation Plans

The National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza Implementation Plan contains over three hundred actions for Federal Departments and Agencies, almost all with timelines and measures of progress. The December 2006 Summary of Progress contains a list of actions due to be completed within 6 months of the release of the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza Implementation Plan, followed by a summary of progress (in italics) prepared by the relevant Department(s) and Agency(ies) for this report. The assessment is indicated directly after the action number. Note: The Summary refers to chapters four through nine because they contain action items; chapters one, two and three do not.

Our man at Bilderberg: Six days to lost innocence
At the end of the annual secret meeting of the global elite, a call of nature feeds Charlie Skelton's worst fears...
Right now, all I want to do is to go home. I'm sitting here scared to go to the loo. I don't like the look of the stairs. I'm thinking of giving the bellboy €20 to stand outside while I pee. When I filled out my report in Sintagma police station, with the nice captain, he was obviously using the wrong paperwork because there was a box where it said: "Name of item lost." It was a lost property form. I wrote "innocence".

Parents gather to nurture nonbelief

RALEIGH, N.C. -- On Sunday mornings, when many of their contemporaries are taking their seats in church pews, a group of young parents mingle in the living room of a suburban home while their children run around playing games.This congregation of Raleigh-Durham, N.C., triangle residents has no creed or ceremony, just a desire to get together and offer each other support for rearing children without religion. Taking their cue from a primer of the same name, they call themselves Parenting Beyond Belief, and they meet nearly every Sunday, in a city park, an indoor playground or in people's homes.
