(CD) — A federal judge in San Diego, California ruled late Tuesday that the more than 2,000 migrant children separated from their parents under the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy must be reunited with their families within 30 days—and children under age 5 must be returned to parents within two weeks. “This ruling is an enormous victory […]

Saudi Arabia, UAE, Jordan, Egypt Back Trump’s Israel-Palestine Plan: Report

(MEE— Four Arab countries are backing Donald Trump’s plan for a settlement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, according to an Israeli newspaper, and are willing to sideline the PA’s President Mahmoud Abbas to see it done.

According to a report in Israel Hayom, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Jordan told Jared Kushner, the US President Trump’s son-in-law and the man charged with solving the Israel-Palestine issue, and envoy Jason Greenblatt they were behind Washington’s so-called “deal of the century”.

Israel Hayom, a daily newspaper owned by billionaires Miriam and Sheldon Adelson, reported that it spoke to officials from the four Arab countries.

The officials are said to have told the paper that their countries have decided to back the US plan regardless of whether Abbas and the PA engage with it.

In the report, a “top Egyptian official” says the countries are unanimous in their position that were the US to go over Abbas’ head and attempt to implement the settlement plan, they would not be opposed to it.

Since taking the presidency, Trump has often framed himself as the man to finally negotiate an end to the Israel-Palestine conflict.

However, in recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, he has been accused by Abbas and the PA of clearly favouring the Israelis and therefore excluding the US from the role of honest dealmaker.

The Palestinians seek East Jerusalem, occupied by Israel since the 1967 Middle East war, as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

Enraged by the Trump administration’s stance, Abbas has refused to engage with the US’ attempts to implement its Israel-Palestine strategy.

Deal or No Deal

Though yet to be announced, many of the details of Trump’s “deal of the century” appear to be common knowledge.

Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, who has been at the forefront of efforts to end the Israeli occupation and set up a Palestinian state for decades, told MEE last week the “deal of the century” was no deal at all.

He said Washington was already implementing its strategy on the ground, regardless of the Palestinians and their interests.

The Americans had become “nothing else than spokespeople for the Israeli occupation”, Erekat said, adding that the US intention was to “normalise Israeli apartheid”.

According to the Israel Hayom report, however, Riyadh, Abu Dhabi, Cairo and Amman are not sympathetic to the PA’s position and reject Abbas’ own rejection of Trump’s settlement.

They see Abbas’ refusal to engage with the Americans as a misstep. MEE reported in March that Abbas had been handed a copy of the US plan by Saudi officials, yet refused to look at it.

According to the Israeli daily, a senior Jordanian official said Kushner and Greenblatt were told the ‎‎”Arab states will not be the ones to throw a wrench ‎in the wheels of the peace process, and that Abbas’ ‎continued refusal to work with the Americans will ‎lead to a regional peace plan being launched without ‎him.”‎

They did, however, underline that “they would not be party to any ‎deal that compromises Palestinian interests”, the report said.

“Despite the strategic mistakes made by Abu Mazen ‎‎[Abbas] and his people,” an Egyptian official told Israel Hayom, “Kushner and Greenblatt were ‎told, in no uncertain terms, that the Palestinians ‎deserve an independent Palestinian state with East ‎Jerusalem as its capital.”‎

“Kushner agreed to the Arab nations’ demand and made ‎in [sic] clear during his meetings with [Jordan’s] King ‎Abdullah and [Egyptian] President [Abdel-Fattah] el-‎Sissi that the interests of the Palestinian people ‎will not be harmed if the regional peace plan is ‎introduced without the Palestinian leadership’s ‎cooperation,” he said.

The Most Important Surveillance Story You Will See for Years Just Went Online

NSA Surveillance

(CD) — “The most important surveillance story you will see for years just went online, revealing how AT&T became the internet’s biggest enemy, secretly collaborating against its customers and partners to destroy your privacy.”

That was how whistleblower and privacy advocate Edward Snowden reacted to the publication of an explosive story by The Intercept on Monday, which reveals for the first time how “fortress-like” AT&T buildings located in eight major American cities have played a central role in a massive National Security Agency (NSA) spying program “that has for years monitored billions of emails, phone calls, and online chats passing across U.S. territory.”

“It’s eye-opening and ominous the extent to which this is happening right here on American soil,” Elizabeth Goitein, co-director of the Liberty and National Security Program at the Brennan Center for Justice, told The Intercept in an interview. “It puts a face on surveillance that we could never think of before in terms of actual buildings and actual facilities in our own cities, in our own backyards.”

The Intercept‘s detailed report—based on a large body of evidence that includes public records, classified NSA documents, and interviews with former AT&T employees—shows how the telecom giant has willingly helped the NSA collect the data of its own customers and those of other companies, thanks to its “unique relationships with other phone and internet providers.”

According to Intercept reporters Ryan Gallagher and Henrik Moltke, who bylined Monday’s story, eight AT&T facilities—known as “peering sites”—in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. “serve a specific function, processing AT&T customers’ data and also carrying large quantities of data from other internet providers.”

“The eight locations are featured on a top-secret NSA map, which depicts U.S. facilities that the agency relies upon for one of its largest surveillance programs, code-named FAIRVIEW,” Gallagher and Moltke write. “AT&T is the only company involved in FAIRVIEW, which was first established in 1985, according to NSA documents, and involves tapping into international telecommunications cables, routers, and switches.”

The report continues:

In 2003, the NSA launched new internet mass surveillance methods, which were pioneered under the FAIRVIEW program. The methods were used by the agency to collect—within a few months—some 400 billion records about people’s internet communications and activity, the New York Timespreviously reported. FAIRVIEW was also forwarding more than one million emails every day to a “keyword selection system” at the NSA’s Fort Meade headquarters.

Central to the internet spying are eight “peering link router complex” sites, which are pinpointed on the top-secret NSA map. The locations of the sites mirror maps of AT&T’s networks, obtained by The Intercept from public records.

Fight for the Future (FFTF), an open internet advocacy group, reacted with alarm to The Intercept‘s reporting on Monday, writing on Twitter, “AT&T has bent over backwards to help the U.S. government spy on essentially all internet traffic.”

“Giant telecom companies aren’t just “anti-consumer,” they’re actively helping authoritarian governments and pushing for policies that endanger free expression,” FFTF concluded.

‘Deal of the Century’: Netanyahu and Kushner Put Final Touches on Peace Plan

(MEMO Op-ed) — There are number of questions raised by the recent visit made by Kushner and Greenblatt to the Middle East, in particular their repeated and prolonged meetings with Israeli officials.

Israeli sources have said that the visits focused on putting the final touches on the American peace plan, known as the ‘deal of the century’. Yet the likely fate of this plan has already become clear: the US will present the plan and the Palestinians will completely reject it. Meanwhile the Israelis with respond with yes. Nothing will change on the ground and the occupation and colonization will continue (if not accelerate).

So, why have these meetings been numerous and urgent?

The key reason is Gaza: Kushner and Greenblatt, are particularly concerned with protecting Israel from the perils of its blowback from its own actions in the Strip. In other words, while Israel seems to be intent an aggressive stance, come-what-may, the US envoys want to prevent the situation in the Gaza Strip from blowing up in Israel’s face.

There are two particular problems Kushner and Greenblatt seem to be focused on: The first is President Abu Mazen’s  rejection of any calming efforts Gaza and his insistence that sanctions remain in place in order to punish Hamas.

The second problem is the Defence Minister Lieberman’s rejection, as well as the rejection of the most important minister in the Cabinet, Naftali Bennett, to link calming the situation in Gaza to a truce.

Meanwhile, the ministers receive support and encouragement from the army and the military institution and receive no real objection from the Arab countries. According to Haaretz newspaper, the Jordanian King does not mind on the condition that this is not in the context of a plan to separate the West Bank from Gaza. As for the Saudi monarch, King Mohammed bin Salman, he, unlike his father, supports this process even at the expense of dividing the Gaza Strip and West Bank in the context of applying Trump’s plan.

A second goal that Netanyahu, Kushner, and Greenblatt are seeking to achieve is to ensure that Hamas, will not benefit from any economic or humanitarian aid or progress on negotiations. Nor will it reap the fruits of its patience and perseverance alongside its people in the face of the Israeli and non-Israeli blockade.

It is possible that the US and Israel will resort to some Arab friends as they often do in similar “hard times” in order to facilitate their aims. This could involve moving, and not resolving issues around captured soldiers’ issue, without this appearing to be an achievement for the resistance, but rather a concession they made in the face of Israel’s inflexibility.

To what extent will Netanyahu and Kushner achieve their plans and goals? This is clearly linked to the level of positions, priorities, and calculations of the Palestinian people, particularly their valiant resistance.

Debunking the Persistent Myth of US Precision Bombing

(CN Op-ed) — Opinion polls in the United States and the United Kingdom have found that a majority of the public in both countries has a remarkably consistent belief that only about 10,000 Iraqis were killed as a result of the U.S.-British invasion of Iraq in 2003. Estimates of deaths in Iraq actually range from 150,000 to 1.2 million. Part of the reason for the seriously […]
