Romney angers Palestinians with proIsrael comment

first_img“There are 57 Muslim and Arab countries here, and while U.S. diplomats are exerting every possible effort to explain their position, here comes Romney, with no knowledge of the region, its history and culture, and gives such statements, which will only serve as ammunition in the hands of extremists in this region,” Erekat said.In recent years, the U.S. has remained constant in its support for establishing a Palestinian state alongside Israel, regardless of whether a Democrat or a Republican sat in the White House. But two decades of on-again, off-again U.S.-led peace efforts have been bedeviled by violence and have not nudged the sides towards a final peace deal that would settle borders and other issues.“We need the U.S. as an honest broker for peace, between us and the Palestinians,” said Alon Liel, a former senior Israeli Foreign Ministry official. “It’s not enough being a friend. If we don’t have the honest broker, we don’t have peace. There are no signs that Romney understands it.”Deputy Israeli Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon, a former Israeli ambassador to Washington, came to Romney’s defense, saying he was impressed by “his intellect, by his breadth of knowledge and his vision.” As criticism mounted as he traveled from Israel to Poland later Monday, campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said the candidate’s comments were “grossly mischaracterized.” The Republican’s campaign contended Romney’s comparison of countries that are close to each other and have wide income disparities _ the U.S. and Mexico, Chile and Ecuador _ showed his comments were broader than just the comparison between Israel and Palestine. While speaking to U.S. audiences, Romney often highlights culture as a key to economic success and emphasizes the power of the American entrepreneurial spirit compared to the values of other countries.Palestinians noted that Romney’s comments did not address the stifling effect of Israel’s occupation. Although Israel withdrew its soldiers and settlers from Gaza in 2005, it continues to restrict Palestinian trade and movement there and in the West Bank. The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund have said repeatedly the Palestinian economy can only grow in a sustainable way of Israel lifts those restrictions.Saeb Erekat, a senior Palestinian official, said Romney’s comments are hurting U.S. efforts to restore Washington’s standing in the Muslim and Arab world. That came on Monday when Romney addressed the stark economic differences between Israel _ a high-tech powerhouse with the per capita income of a developed nation _ and the poorer Palestinians. Romney told an audience of affluent Jewish donors _ including gambling magnate Sheldon Adelson, who is pumping millions into a crusade to defeat President Barack Obama _ that some economic historians have theorized that “culture makes all the difference.”“You notice a stark difference in economic vitality” between Israel and the Palestinians, Romney said, proceeding to badly flub the economic output numbers on both sides. “And as I come here and I look out over this city and consider the accomplishments of the people of this nation, I recognize the power of at least culture and a few other things,” he said, citing an innovative business climate and the Jewish history of thriving in difficult circumstances.Palestinian leaders were outraged.“The statement reflects a clear racist spirit,” said Palestinian Labor Minister Ahmed Majdalani. “If Romney came here to rally Israeli and Jewish support in the U.S. election, he can do that without insulting the Palestinian people.” Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths Clean energy: Why it matters for Arizona Comments   Share   “It is unfortunate that the Palestinians find every reason and opportunity to discomfit or to criticize or to attack Israel or anyone who pays respect to Israel and Jewish culture or anyone who supports Israel,” Ayalon said.It’s become the norm for U.S. presidential hopefuls to make a stop in Israel in hopes of winning support from Jewish voters in the U.S., and Palestinian officials say Romney’s embrace of Israel’s positions was expected, especially with polls showing a close race. Romney apparently hoped to exploit the sense that Obama’s relations with Israelis and the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been rocky.Israeli officials received Romney warmly as he agreed with Israel that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, disregarding the Palestinians’ claim to the war-won eastern sector, annexed by Israel in 1967 in a move that is not internationally recognized. Romney also suggested he was open to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, something the Israelis have long sought but the U.S. has refused to do because it would imply recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the entire city.Romney also spoke categorically about protecting Israel from Iran’s nuclear ambitions, which both Israel and the U.S. think are directed at producing bombs, despite Tehran’s denial. He also cancelled a planned meeting with Israel’s opposition Labor Party leader, sparking concerns among Israeli commentators that Netanyahu and his visitor appeared so politically allied that it might endanger Israel’s standing in Washington if Obama were reelected.

Romney left Israel on Monday.Romney’s remarks also managed to offend some Jews, who thought the talk about Jewish prosperity played into an anti-Semitic stereotype. “When I heard the association between Jews and money, it really caused me some uncomfortable feeling, I must say, because that was what was said by anti-Semites all over the years,” said Abraham Diskin, a political science professor at the Inter-Disciplinary Center outside Tel Aviv.___Laub reported from the West Bank.

Associated PressJERUSALEM (AP) – Mitt Romney’s campaign stop in Israel left behind furious Palestinians charging that the Republican presidential candidate hasn’t fully grasped the complexities of one of the world’s most intractable conflicts.Romney’s sweeping embrace of Israeli government positions _ especially on the Iranian nuclear program _ came as no surprise. But Palestinian _ and some Israeli _ critics say he overshot by seeming to snub the Palestinians’ president, dismiss their claims to Jerusalem, and suggest their culture is inferior to Israel’s.

Personal Travel Managers living the Shanghai life

first_imgPersonal Travel Managers living the Shanghai lifeShanghai is one of the world’s great financial centres, but five Victoria based personal travel managers (PTMs) who took part in a TravelManagers exclusive famil discovered that visitors who focus purely on business during their stay, miss out on much of what this vibrant city has to offer.For PTM Margherita Cilauro, representative for Pascoe Vale South it was her first visit to Shanghai, and she now feels comfortable and confident promoting the destination to her clients.“I used to think that the majority of visitors to Shanghai were there for business, but I now realise that it is a city that has so much to offer, with something for everyone.”Daniel Price, representative for Windsor, agrees that the famil has changed his perceptions of the city.“Getting a sense of Shanghai airport and the layout of the city, especially the downtown area around Nanjing Rd including the People’s Park, was really beneficial for me,” he explains.PTMs also attending the famil were Jeremy Ferguson representative from Brunswick West, Luke Vaughan representative from Kooyong and Frances Cochrane representative from Mooroolbark along with Marlene Lane, representing TravelManagers’ national partnership office.Lane was fascinated by the different styles of architecture and many unique modern buildings that make up the city skyline.The city lights provide a spectacular backdrop for PTMs’ hosted first night dinner in Shanghai, atop the Radisson Blu at Epicure 45 restaurant. Front Daniel Price, from left to right Luke Vaughan, local guide, local Radisson Blu host, Kathryn Quigley, Jeremy Ferguson, Mark Mulville, Fran Cochrane, Marlene Lane and Margherita Cilauro“At night, it was even more amazing. We had dinner at the Radisson Blu Shanghai New World hotel’s restaurant, Epicure on 45, and as the restaurant revolved it revealed an incredible light show. The following night we saw the same show from another angle, as we took a 45-minute cruise along the river.”TravelManagers’ exclusive Shanghai famil included a day trip to Tongli water townHowever, the group’s time was not spent solely in Shanghai. On the Go Tours hosted the participants on a day trip which gave the opportunity to experience a very different side to China which included a visit to the village of Tongli, just one and a half hours’ drive from the city. This ancient village, which is sometimes described as ‘the Venice of the East’, is criss-crossed by 15 small river lanes that are spanned by 49 stone bridges in a variety of styles.Cilauro says the village’s well-preserved architecture, private gardens, temples and houses made their visit a journey back in time.“The authenticity of the village, shops, restaurants and gardens took us back hundreds of years to how life used to be in China. I would highly recommend my clients make the effort to see it for themselves.”TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager, Michael Gazal, says the experiences of the PTMs on this famil support the company’s philosophy that first-hand knowledge is essential for providing great service to clients.“For many of our PTMs, Shanghai is thought of primarily as a business destination and this famil has shown them a different side to the city, knowledge and experience they can share with their clients.”Gazal adds, “First-hand experience also makes it easier to answer questions such as ‘what sort of power adapter will I need?’, ‘what are the local taxis like?’ and ‘what is internet access like?’ It’s this type of personal expertise that provides real value to their clients.”PTMs Daniel Price and Fran Cochrane made a formidable team in the famil’s day-long ‘Amazing Race’- discover Shanghai activity at the entrance to the city’s Ocean AquariumThe seven-night famil included plenty of time to explore the city, including a full day mystery Amazing Race-style activity and a free day to enjoy shopping on Nanjing Road or soak up the views during a walk along the Bund.Experiencing a Shanghai river cruise from left to right local guide, Mark Mulville, Margherita Cilauro, Kathryn Quigley, Fran Cochrane, Jeremy Ferguson, Marlene Lane, Danial Price and Luke VaughanThe famil was escorted by Kathryn Quigley from Carlson Rezidor Hotels and Mark Mulville of Malaysian Airlines with the participants appreciating the opportunity to experience both Malaysian’s business and economy class products. All five PTMs agreed that they were greatly impressed by the service in both cabins.“Business class obviously offers you amazing personalised service and comfort that is truly fantastic. You can put your feet up and enjoy a chair-massage whilst you watch a movie, or lie flat for a good sleep,” says Cilauro, who adds that she was surprised and happy to find sufficient leg room and equally good service in economy class.Mark Mulville – Malaysian Airlines with PTMs Fran Cochrane, Daniel Price and Margherita Cilauro at Tongli water townPrice says Shanghai surprised all five first-time visitors, who found the locals to be friendly and helpful, and the city safe, easy to get around and paradise for shoppers.“I was impressed by the number of trees in the downtown area and how clean and organised everything is, it is truly a holiday destination for anyone – solo travellers, families or honeymooners.”For more information or to speak to someone confidentially about TravelManagers please contact Suzanne Laister on 1800 019 599. About TravelManagersTravel Managers operates in all Australian States and is a wholly owned subsidiary of House of Travel, Australasia’s largest independent travel company which has a forecast turnover of $1.5 billion for 2017.

provided statutory backing On Thursday the Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies Benefits and Services) Bill hereafter Aadhaar bill was introduced as a money bill in the Lok Sabha I believe tabling this bill in Parliament is possibly one of the most transformative economic reform legislation introduced in India But the editors of the white newspapers (including this paper) thought it more fit to give Kanhaiya Kumar 15 more minutes of fame He pontificated the following: “Modiji was talking about Stalin and Khrushchev… I felt like jumping into the TV screen grabbing his suit and saying ‘Modiji please speak about Hitler’” (Page 1 The Indian Express March 4) The Aadhaar news instead was buried deep in the white papers (The Indian Express The Hindu The Times of India) Are they too going the way of TV news Coming back to the Aadhaar bill why is it one of the most transformative economic legislationBecause it’s the single-most important method of decreasing massive political and bureaucratic corruption in India And of delivering a much higher level of income transfers to the poor Econ 101 teaches you that it’s important that the government do not interfere in the pricing of goods and services But before Kanhaiya-led scholars from JNU (and elsewhere) protest that the free market doesn’t guarantee a just distribution of income (it absolutely does not and not only because it is difficult to define “just”) let me remind the left that Econ 101 also teaches you that income transfers are a necessary part of a capitalist society None other than the “arch-capitalist” Milton Friedman introduced the idea of a negative income tax More importantly what Aadhaar will do as it has already done for LPG connections is to provide bank transfers in the name of the woman head of household In his budget speech Finance Minister Arun Jaitley stated the government has embarked upon “a massive mission to provide LPG connection in the name of women members of poor households” This can now be used for other welfare payments (food subsidies NREGA etc) Presently 50 per cent of food subsidies (approximately Rs 50000 crore) registered as payments to individuals by the FCI accrue to no known man woman or child in India But that money is withdrawn from the exchequer — it’s not monopoly money The opposition to the Aadhaar bill is on several grounds (as is well known in India we also debate the existence of gravity failing which we debate whether acceleration due to gravity is really exactly 32 ft/sec2 For you youngsters that’s 98 m/sec2) But the prime concern is that the government is mistaken in introducing the bill as a money bill and that it’s doing so to circumvent the Rajya Sabha This argument has merit but only if it’s valid Article 110 of the Constitution defining the money bill states that in addition to taxation matters “the custody of the Consolidated Fund or the Contingency Fund of India the payment of moneys into or the withdrawal of moneys from any such Fund” is also part of a money bill The opening paragraph of the Aadhaar bill not surprisingly states that the purpose of the bill is to “provide for… efficient transparent and targeted delivery of subsidies benefits and services the expenditure for which is incurred from the Consolidated Fund of India” (emphasis added) And remember if any question arises whether this bill can qualify as a money bill the decision lies with the speaker of the Lok Sabha and is final Therefore the argument that the Aadhaar bill cannot be a money bill is invalid Moving on the BJP is being attacked for having opposed the introduction of Aadhaar during the UPA regime and rightfully so The BJP in opposition has the disappointing record of helping the UPA pass every bad bill that shouldn’t have been passed and obstructing the passage of all the bills that should have been passed A not-so-publicised fact is that major elements within the UPA were opposed to Aadhaar as well The Standing Committee on Finance in 2011-12 found that UPA ministries had raised several concerns with respect to Aadhaar — the finance ministry on the lack of coordination between agencies leading to duplication of expenditure; the home ministry on the involvement of private agencies in the scheme resulting in a potential threat to national security to name a few While these are concerns to which solutions need to be found (or maybe are already in the pipeline) this is far from undermining the fact that Aadhaar is the need of the hour Other objectors belong to the narcissistic holier-than-thou ideologues — that is impersonal government administered cash transfers are bad but government administered in-kind subsidies (like food subsidies) are good as long as you ask me how it should be done In this camp are leftist academics who believe we shouldn’t tinker with the PDS system because recently the corruption leakage has been reduced by 10 percentage points from the prior leakage level of 50 percentage points I started this article with reference to Kanhaiya and I will be remiss and amiss if I didn’t comment on Justice Pratibha Rani’s judgment: “The thoughts reflected in the slogans raised by some of the students of JNU… cannot be claimed to be protected as a fundamental right of speech and expression I consider this as a kind of infection… if the infection results in infecting the limb to the extent that it becomes gangrene amputation is the only treatment” This in a judgment on whether Kanhaiya should be granted bail after he was arrested
