Former ambassador’s bizarre attack on Obama lays bare strains in US-Israeli ties

Photograph Nicholas Kamm,AFP,Getty Images

It’s a peculiar feature of American relations with Israel that more than a few senior diplomats posted from Jerusalem to Washington were once US citizens. The present Israeli ambassador, Ron Dermer, was born in Miami Beach and carried an American passport until he renounced it in 2005 in order to serve as the Jewish state’s economic envoy in DC. When Dermer lived in the US, before moving to Israel two decades ago, he was a Republican party operative. There is a view in the White House that he remains one as ambassador after Dermer colluded with Republican leaders to embarrass Barack Obama, most…

Euro zone sets emergency summit on Greece as money flees

(Reuters)…Euro zone leaders will hold an emergency summit on Monday to try to avert a Greek default after bank withdrawals accelerated and government revenue slumped as Athens and its international creditors remain deadlocked over a debt deal. Finance ministers of the 19-nation currency bloc failed to make any breakthrough on a cash-for-reforms agreement at talks in Luxembourg on Thursday, just 12 days beforeGreece must make a crucial debt repayment to the International Monetary Fund. “Regrettably … too little progress has been made. No agreement is in sight,” Jeroen Dijsselbloem, chairman of the Eurogroup, told a news conference. Ministers sent a strong signal that…

Senate Dems give GOP 45-day highway deadline

The Hill

Senate Democrats are giving Republicans 45 days to negotiate a long-term highway funding extension. And while they aren’t ruling out supporting another short-term fix when funding runs out at the end of July, they suggest it will be difficult to get such a measure through the Senate. “The bottom line is, we’re asking them to meet our timetable. If they don’t meet this timetable, it will be very hard for us to do another short-term extension,” Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the third-ranking member of the Democratic leadership, told reporters Tuesday. “We do not want a 34th short-term extension of this…

Boehner rips Republicans for ‘nonsense’

Greg Nash

(The Hill)…Displaying a rare flash of anger, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Tuesday chastised the nearly three dozen Republicans who voted against a procedural rule that structured how a critical trade package was brought to the House floor. “I made it pretty clear to the members today I was not very happy about it,” Boehner told reporters after a closed-door meeting with rank-and-file members at the Capitol Hill Club. “You know, we’re a team. And we’ve worked hard to get the majority; we’ve worked hard to stay in the majority. “And I expect our team to act like a team,…

Top Dem: ‘No smoking gun’ in latest Benghazi documents

Anne Wernikoff

The top Democrat on the House committee investigating the Benghazi attack says there is “no smoking gun” among the roughly 60 newly disclosed emails between Hillary Clinton and adviser Sidney Blumenthal. “I can say that there is no smoking gun,” Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the ranking member on the House Select Committee on Benghazi, told reporters before heading into Blumenthal’s closed-door deposition. “I don’t recall anything on the Benghazi attack itself,” he added. Cummings said the messages cover a “wide range of things,” but declined to offer specifics. He called on chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) to release the emails on…

Russia says will retaliate if U.S. weapons stationed on its borders

A plan by Washington to station tanks and heavy weapons in NATO states on Russia’s border would be the most aggressive U.S. act since the Cold War, and Moscow would retaliate by beefing up its own forces, a Russian defense official said on Monday. The United States is offering to store military equipment on allies’ territory in eastern Europe, a proposal aimed at reassuring governments worried that after the conflict inUkraine, they could be the Kremlin’s next target. Poland and the Baltic states, where officials say privately they have been frustrated the NATO alliance has not taken more decisive steps…

Obama: I respond to people who call me ‘idiot’

The Hill

During an interview with entertainment news program “Extra,” correspondent Jerry Penacoli thanked the president for his healthcare law, which he says “pretty much saved my finances and my life” during his battle with cancer. “The number of stories I have gotten like yours — it’s made a difference in a lot of people’s lives,” Obama said in the interview, which aired Thursday. But not all the feedback the president gets from the public is positive. “I get 10 letters a night out of the 40,000 letters and emails and messages that we get,” he said. “Some of them are just saying thank…

L’Afrique donne le coup d’envoi à un marché commun « du Cap au Caire »

Wikipedia

Cecil Rhodes en rêvait : construire un continuum économique et politique en Afrique « du Cap au Caire ». Un siècle et quelques années plus tard, à Charm el-Cheikh, vingt-six dirigeants de pays d’Afrique ont, mercredi 10 juin, posé les bases d’un vaste marché unique courant de l’Afrique du Sud au Caire. Ce n’est plus, là, le mythe impérial d’un colonialiste anglais qui voulait relier, à la fin du dix-neuvième siècle, toutes les colonies de son pays, mais un projet porté par les Africains eux-mêmes, auxquels il reste nombre d’obstacles à surmonter avant d’accomplir ce rêve. Sur le papier, ce projet, né après cinq ans de négociations,…

UK police killing of Brazilian heard in Euro court

The death of a 27-year-old Brazilian shot by police in the wake of the 2005 London bombings could have been prevented, a lawyer for the United Kingdom told Europe’s top human rights court on Wednesday, adding the incident did not however amount to murder. The European Court of Human Rights was opening hearings into Britain’s handling of the case nearly ten years after police shot Jean Charles de Menezes seven times in the head as he boarded an underground train in south London. They mistook him for one of four men who unsuccessfully tried to bomb London’s transport system the…

PHOTO MARC MLLER, AFP

Agence France-Presse KRÜN Le président américain Barack Obama, la chancelière allemande Angela Merkel et le président du Conseil européen Donald Tusk ont affiché dimanche leur unité face à la Russie sur le dossier ukrainien au lancement d’un sommet du G7 en Allemagne. M. Obama a notamment loué l’amitié germano-américaine, alors que le président russe Vladimir Poutine est le grand absent du sommet du G7 en Bavière (sud), exclu de ce format des puissances industrielles depuis que la Russie a annexé la Crimée en mars 2014. «Ce matin, alors que nous célébrons l’une des alliances les plus fortes au monde, mon…
