Suicide Attacks at Mosques in Yemen Kill More Than 130

1 Share
SANA, Yemen — A previously unknown Yemeni affiliate of the Islamic State militant group claimed responsibility for killing more than 130 people on Friday in coordinated suicide bomb attacks on two Shiite mosques in the capital, Sana, accelerating the sectarian violence in a country edging closer to civil war.
Hospitals in the capital made urgent appeals for blood to treat the hundreds of people injured in the explosions at the Badr and Hashoush mosques, both attended by Zaydi Shiites. Another suicide bomber was detected before he could reach a mosque in the northern province of Saada, a stronghold of the Houthi rebel movement, which controls Sana and since September has beenYemen’s most dominant force.
An Interior Ministry official said at least 60 people were killed at each mosque, but the death toll is expected to rise.
The most recent attack on civilians in the capital was in January, when a car bomb killed more than 30 people outside a police academy.
Sunni extremists, including the Islamic State fighters and militants linked to an affiliate of Al Qaeda in Yemen, have carried out a number of deadly attacks against supporters of the Houthis, whose leaders are members of the Zaydi branch of Shiite Islam and are considered heretics by the Sunni militants.
But bombings of mosques have been rare, and in a recent statement on “unlawful” killings, Al Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen condemned such attacks. Instead, a group calling itself Sana Province and claiming to be the Yemeni affiliate of the Islamic State claimed responsibility for Friday’s bombings, raising the specter of a deadly, destabilizing new force in Yemen’s conflict.
“This operation is but the tip of the iceberg,” the group said in an audio statement carried by the SITE Intelligence Group. “Let the polytheist Houthis know that the soldiers of the Islamic State will not rest and will not stay still until they extirpate them.”
The carnage on Friday came after days of fighting across Yemen, marking a violent new stage in a seven-month-old political crisis that is increasingly taking on the character of a civil war.
In early 2014, Shiite insurgents known as Houthis consolidated control over Yemen’s Saada Province. In recent months, they have expanded their influence.

Yemen has been leaderless since January, when the Houthis tightened their grip on the capital andplaced the president, Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi, along with his government, under house arrest.
Mr. Hadi later fled to the southern port city of Aden and declared that he was still the country’s leader, splitting the country between competing centers of power. Diplomats, including those at the United Nations, have been unable to broker a compromise, as many regional powers, including Iran and Saudi Arabia, seem to have abandoned the effort, throwing their support behind either Mr. Hadi or the Houthis and inflaming the conflict.
Earlier this week, unidentified assassins shot and killed one of Yemen’s most prominent dissident journalists and a supporter of the Houthis, Abdulkarim al-Khaiwani, outside his home in Sana. On Thursday, violence spread to Aden in a day of rare factional clashes over control of the international airport and a security base.
The fighting in Aden pitted tribesmen and military units loyal to Mr. Hadi against a security unit seen as close to Yemen’s former president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, who has remained influential in the country and allied himself with the Houthis.
There were more reports of fighting in the south on Friday. Warplanes bombed Mr. Hadi’s presidential compound in Aden for a second day, but did not cause any casualties, according to witnesses and security officials in the city.
Blood could be seen on the street outside the Badr mosque, where the bombers maximized the number of casualties by detonating their explosives inside but also among the overflow of worshipers outside. Witnesses said 12 members of one family were killed.
Two suicide bombers also attacked the Hashoush mosque, with one hiding his explosives in a fake cast on his leg, which he detonated after he was stopped at a checkpoint about 65 feet from the mosque entrance. The other bomber made it inside as the prayers ended.
“Yemenis knew violence, but not this brutal,” said Farea al-Muslimi, a Sana-based political analyst, speaking about the assassinations, clashes and bombings over the last few days.
“There are no norms,” he said. “It’s a very scary moment.”

U.S. Must Step Up Capacity for Cyberattacks, Chief Argues

1 Share
WASHINGTON — The admiral who directs American cyberforces told a Senate committee on Thursday that the United States was “at a tipping point” where it needed to increase its ability to conduct cyberattacks, to create a deterrent against other countries that are attacking it.
The growing American capabilities in cyberweapons are hardly a secret: They were critical to a yearslong American and Israeli cyberattack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, and descriptions of the placement of “implants” in foreign computer systems — for surveillance and potential offensive action — run through thousands of pages of documents released by Edward J. Snowden, the formerNational Security Agency contractor.
But the willingness of Adm. Michael S. Rogers to discuss purely offensive cyberweapons in his appearance before the Armed Services Committee comes at a moment when the Obama administration is reluctantly experimenting with how to discuss the subject in public, much as it gradually began to talk about drone strikes a few years ago.
Admiral Rogers, who heads both the National Security Agency and its military cousin, United States Cyber Command, was answering questions about how the United States could deter attacks like the kind that struck Sony Pictures Entertainment. President Obama has said publicly that the attack originated in North Korea.
When pressed, Admiral Rogers said that erecting ever-higher digital fences would never be enough, and that “we have got to broaden our capabilities to provide policy makers and operational commanders with a broader range of options. Because in the end, a purely defensive reactive strategy will be both late” and would become “incredibly resource-intense.”
“So, I have been an advocate of, we also need to think about how can we increase our capacity on the offensive side here, to get to that point of deterrence.”
In interviews as he came into office last year, Admiral Rogers identified creating some form of deterrence as his highest priority. At the time, he said, Chinese and other attackers who steal data from American companies “pay no price.”
In the case of North Korea, the United States imposed some modest economic sanctions, and it is unclear whether an attack that slowed the North’s Internet connections was the result of American action or some other kind of action. In any event, the response was weak enough that many in the Obama administration question whether the North paid a high enough price.
But as Admiral Rogers attempted to describe to the committee, deterrence in the digital realm is a complex business; most comparisons to the nuclear age fail. There are so many different kinds of cyberattackers — states, businesses, hackers, teenagers, angry ideologues — that it would be nearly impossible to deter them with traditional means, most experts say.
Admiral Rogers himself seemed to be struggling with the analogies at times, comparing the decisions that national leaders will have to make with those faced by the Bush administration on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. At that time the question was whether the United States would be willing to make “the decision that we were going to shoot down, potentially, a civilian airliner that we thought had potentially become a weapon.”
“I think we need to have that same discussion now,” Admiral Rogers said. “We’ve got to increase our decision makers’ comfort and level of knowledge with what capabilities we have and what we can do.”
The committee chairman, Senator John McCain of Arizona, who has argued for a robust offensive cybercapability, jumped in to say, “But right now, the level of deterrence is not deterring.
“That is true,” Admiral Rogers responded.

Pope Francis: reckless blabbermouth or sophisticated strategist? 

1 Share
His public utterances on all manner of subject may seem scattergun or contradictory, but this pope is playing a long, tactical game
It’s a mistake to take too much notice of what the pope says. And funnily enough, he’d be the first to say so. By which I don’t mean that it won’t be worth listening when he makes the speech, announced this week, to the United Nations general assembly in September. Pope Francis is due to publish the Catholic church’s first encyclical on the environment in a couple of months, and he’ll draw on that to argue in New York for greater international commitments to curb greenhouse gases. He’ll probably call for the rich to do much more to help poor people around the world already blasted by the effects of climate change.
He had a feeling, he told Mexican television, that his pontificate would be brief, just two or three years more
It was conservatives who were first most disconcerted. They bemoaned the ‘lamentable fuzziness' in his extemporaneity
What Francis is trying to do is devalue the coinage of papal utterances. He is doing something similar with the synod

Obama: US to reassess ties with Israel

1 Share

US President Barack Obama with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
US President Barack Obama has told Benjamin Netanyahu that Washington will “reassess” its ties with Tel Aviv after the Israeli prime minister’s recent provocative statements.
Obama delivered the message in a phone call to Netanyahu on Thursday, days after Netanyahu rejected the idea of a Palestinian state during his election campaign.
“The President told the [Israeli] Prime Minister that we will need to re-assess our options following the Prime Minister’s new positions and comments regarding the two state solution,” according to a White House official.
Netanyahu’s rightwing Likud party won 30 of the 120 seats in parliament, against 24 for rivals in the center-left Zionist Union in Tuesday’s Israeli national election.
Netanyahu made opposition to nuclear negotiations with Iran a centerpiece of his reelection campaign. He also rejected the idea of a Palestinian state, which has been a key element of US foreign policy.
In his telephone conversation with Netanyahu, Obama also finally “congratulated” the Likud leader on his election win.
On Thursday, the White House raised the prospect of removing critical US diplomatic cover for Israel at the United Nations, following Netanyahu’s divisive victory.
“Steps that the United States has taken at the United Nations had been predicated on this idea that the two-state solution is the best outcome,” said White House spokesman Josh Earnest.
“What is apparent is that in the context of the campaign and while he was the sitting prime minister of Israel, he walked back from commitments Israel previously made to a two-state solution,” Earnest said.
“Now our ally in these talks has said that they are no longer committed to that solution. That means we need to reevaluate our position in this matter, and that is what we will do moving forward,” he added.

Drones aren’t just toys that cause a nuisance. They’re still killing innocent people 

1 Share
Current media coverage might make you think drones are what naughty people land on the White House lawn. This is a dangerous disconnect from the bloody reality
For anyone concerned about the use of drones, or remotely piloted aircraft as the industry insists on calling them, the nature of recent coverage has been somewhat perturbing. With the normalisation of the use of military drones, media interest has waned and they now seem far more interested in writing about toy drones landing on the White House lawn than the White House’s use of drones for targeted assassination. Just this week, much ink has been spilt covering the arrest of an amateur pilot for thoughtlessly flying a drone near parliament, while the use of armed British drones in Syria – breaching assurances by the defence secretary, Michael Fallon, against mission creep – received far less attention.
Despite widespread ethical, political and legal misgivings, US, British and Israeli forces have carried out numerous drone strikes this year. And as military spokespeople repeat bland assurances about the precise nature of such operations, civilians continue to die.

Rapper Azealia Banks: I Hate White Americans

1 Share
Rapper Azealia Banks hates “white Americans” and everything about the U.S.
In a recent interview with Playboy, the 23-year-old Harlem rapper said she wanted to leave the U.S. because America is blatantly racist.
“I hate everything about this country,” she said. “Like, I hate fat, white Americans.”
“All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms.”
“Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma — that’s really America,” she added.
But isn’t it blatantly racist to say you hate white people?
Banks also claimed that racism motivates her critics and that she’s owed “reparations.”
“It’s always about race,” she said. “[New Zealand singer] Lorde can run her mouth and talk shit about all these other b*tches, but y’all aren’t saying she’s angry.”
“If I have something to say, I get pushed into the corner.”
“Really, the generational effects of Jim Crow and poverty linger on,” Banks continued. “As long as I have my money, I’m getting the f*ck out of here and I’m gonna leave y’all to your own devices.”
She previously joked about “killing crackers” in their sleep after a jury decided not to indict Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson for shooting resident Mike Brown.
Banks’ views are testament to how “social justice warriors” and the Obama administration are increasingly pushing racial conflict.
“There is no such thing as reverse racism or reverse sexism (or the reverse of any form of oppression,)” the textbook claimed. “While women can be just as prejudiced as men, women cannot be ‘just as sexist as men’ because they do not hold political, economic and institutional power.”
And it was only a few months ago that First Lady Michelle Obama claimed that a shopper at Target was being racist for mistaking her for a Target employee.
“She said, ‘Can you reach on that shelf and hand me the detergent?’ I kid you not,” Obama said. “And the only thing she said — I reached up, because she was short, and I reached up, pulled it down – she said, ‘Well, you didn’t have to make it look so easy.’”
“That was my interaction. I felt so good.”
The Obama administration is pushing racial conflict to further divide the country, according to Ben Stein, the famous actor and political commentator.
“This president is the most racist president there has ever been in America,” Stein said. “He is purposely trying to use race to divide Americans.”
“They’re handing out pamphlets about this – and it’s been described a lot in the Wall Street Journal – [that say] ‘look, the Republican candidates are targeting President Obama because he’s black and you’re black, so you gotta go out and support him,” he added. “That’s just nonsense.”
