Al Monitor | Hamidreza Azizi: explains that the Russian proposal for de-escalation or safe zones in Syria “is not only the best approach for Moscow and Tehran to preserve their core interests in the country, but it could also act as a factor that brings the two countries even closer together.” Most critical to Iran, according to Azizi, is that the proposal legitimates Iran’s military presence in Syria. “Since one of the key positions of both the Syrian opposition and its foreign backers has been objection to Iran’s military presence in Syria, the international aspect of the May 4 agreement and the fact that it names Iran as one of the peacekeepers could justify the presence of Iranian troops in Syria on the international stage. This is, in fact, the main reason behind the Syrian opposition’s objection to any Iranian role in the process,” Azizi writes.

We’ve got to look at this with a little bit more understanding of the Iranian position.” The UK politician commented that Trump’s stance toward Iran is a mistake, adding that Iran keeps Trump’s behavior under close attention. Trump is trying to unite Sunni-majority states and Israel against Iran, which is a dangerous policy. Lamont said that he doesnt mean the behavior toward Iran should be an indifferent one, but when Iran takes a constructive step, it deserves more appropriate reaction. He said the US president should try to assure Iran that not only doesnt the West seek regime change in Iran, but it calls for better ties. Answering a question about Iran’s president’s reaction against Trump’s stance, the UK Trade Envoy to Iran said he thinks that President Rouhani will act with caution. Rouhani has promised to terminate other non-nuclear sanctions on Iran; and this means he has to negotiate with Europe and the US directly to do so. It’s a tough task, but he has promised it, said Lamont.

These websites include the Arabic-language edition of Huffington Post and website of the Qatar-based Aljazeera network. The type of communication blockage used to interrupt Mada Masr is known as a RST injection attack. According to a note from their editors posted on Facebook, this technique uses a third party to monitor and interfere with Internet traffic moving to and from the target website. While websites have been blocked in Egypt before, this marks the first time the government has publicly announced their decision to do so. Is this kind of censorship legal? Under the patronage of President Abdelfattah El Sisi, Egypt has taken great measures to curb dissent, through targeting of individual journalists and online activists, and by imposing pro-government media policies. And while officials did not give the Mada Masr team a precise explanation of the blocking, the legality of this act remains in question.

Further, the Supreme Leader in most instances prefers to maintain an image of political insolation, and thus usually contours his political pronouncements partially in line with popular sentiment, even though he may have preferences and typically works through informal institutions to realise these. The implications of Rouhani’s victory will thus entail a continuation of his stance of increased cooperation globally. This is despite the fact that Khamenei has become disenchanted with this stance, fearing the reforms it may bring, and will thus act to stunt it. Further, although much of Rouhani’s criticisms over the roles of the Guard Core, Judiciary, and clerical establishment in the regime were politicking, the directness and sharpness of these criticisms and the usual tendency for Iranian presidents to try to empower the office of the presidency in their second term will ensure an escalation the confrontations between these competing centres of power.

When we think about terrorism we most often think about the horrors of a Manchester-like attack, where a radicalized suicide bomber went into a concert hall and killed dozens of innocent civilians. It was an inexcusable act of savagery and it certainly did terrorize the population. What is less considered are attacks that leave far ...

I cannot accept this award without thinking about anyone who has ever been affected by an act of terrorism and who is trying to pick up the pieces and go on living after having lost everything, the actress said. Please know that you are not forgotten. Phoenix was recognized for his role in Lynne Ramsay's thriller You Were Never Really Here, in which he played a tormented war veteran trying to save a teenage girl from a sex trafficking ring. The actor wore sneakers on stage as he collected the prize. He said his leather shoes had been flown ahead of him. He apologized for his appearance, saying the prize was totally unexpected. The French AIDS drama 120 Beats Per Minute won the Grand Prize from the jury. The award recognizes a strong film that missed out on the Palme d'Or. Directed by Robin Campillo, the co-screenwriter of the Palme d'Or-winning film The Class, the movie centers on the activist group ACT UP in Paris in the 1990s during the AIDS crisis.

of the UK over the years. Theresa May is the one who wants to pursue Brexit and wants to pursue a hard Brexit. If that's what she's doing, then to use that as a process to centralise power in the UK, or, in areas that are under the Scotland Act devolved to the Scottish Parliament, I do think that would be unacceptable. But you would then send them back?.

People act shockingly normal when they are wearing the device, Mascaro says. They kind of forget they are wearing it or they say to themselves, what are the odds it's on right now?' The EAR technology is a naturalistic observation method that helped us verify things about parental behavior that we suspected based on previous research. It also uncovered subtle biases that we didn't necessarily hypothesize in advance.

Fathers of daughters had stronger responses to their daughters' happy expressions in areas of the brain important for processing emotions, reward, and value. In contrast, the brains of fathers of sons responded more robustly to their child's neutral facial expressions.

British police have arrested a 19-year-old man in connection with the Manchester bombing that killed 22 people last week. The arrest was made late Sunday during a raid in the Gorton area of Manchester on "suspicion of offences contrary to the terrorism act," the Greater Manchester police said in a statement. Earlier in the day, police arrested a 25-year-old and searched his property. Thirteen men remain in British custody in relation to the suicide bombing by Manchester native Salman Abedi, 22, in the lobby of Manchester Arena last Monday just after American pop singer Ariana Grande finished her concert. A woman and teenage boy arrested by British police this week have been released without charges. Abedi's brother and father also were arrested in Libya last week where they are being held. A spokesman said that the brother, Hashim, was aware of Abedi's plans to attack.

Decoration Day In 1868, the commemoration become known officially as Decoration Day, a day to clean up and place flowers on the graves of the war dead. Two decades later, U.S. states had adopted it as an official holiday. But for more than 50 years, the holiday only remembered those killed in the Civil War, not in any other American conflict. It wasnt until America’s entry into World War One that the tradition was expanded to include those killed in all wars. What is now celebrated as Memorial Day was not officially recognized nationwide until that act of Congress in 1971. Nearly, thirty years later, in 2000, Congress passed the National Moment of Remembrance Act, encouraging all citizens to pause for a minute of silence each year on Memorial Day to remember those who sacrificed their lives in all American military conflicts.
