Israeli Suspend Plan to Set Up Database of Jewish Students in U.S.

No.188875 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Several hours after Haaretz published a story exposing a controversial Israeli government initiative to set up a database with the names of all Jewish students in the United States, the plan was put on hold.

The project was supposed to have been run through Mosaic United, a company set up by the Ministry of Diaspora Affairs several years ago with the declared mission of strengthening the religious identity and connection to Israel of young Jews abroad.

In its statement, Hillel International said it had not been aware of the plan until it received an inquiry from Haaretz. We immediately investigated and made clear to Mosaic United our objections to this initiative. We believe the initiative in this tender is not in the best interest of engaging American Jewish college students. Based on our objections, Mosaic United has agreed to take down the tender from its website and cancel this initiative. We appreciate Mosaic Uniteds swift response to our concerns.

Jewish Population in Ireland Rises by 30%, Much to Surprise of Local Community
Emerald Isle now boasts its highest number of Jews since 1971, thanks to influx of young professionals working with U.S. high-tech firms

Arresting a decades-long decline, the Jewish population in Ireland rose by nearly 30 percent between 2011 and 2016, the Irish Times reported Friday.

According to the 2016 Irish census, there are now 2,557 Jews in Ireland, a 28.9 percent increase from 2011, when the last census was taken. Over half of all Jews in Ireland (1,539) live in the capital, Dublin.

The figures came to a surprise to many, since the Jewish population of Ireland was thought to be in terminal decline after reaching a high of nearly 4,000 in 1946. The 2016 figure was the highest recorded since the 1971 census.

The Irish Times attributed the increase to the influx of young Jewish professionals working with high-tech U.S. multinational firms, which have set up offices in the Emerald Isle.

trump threatens NBC operating license for unflattering reporting, blasts ‘disgusting’ free press

- Network reported Trump proposed huge increase in arsenal
- Trump denies asking for ‘tenfold’ increase in U.S. nukes

President Donald Trump denied ever calling for a bigger U.S. nuclear arsenal and questioned whether FCC licenses should be taken from NBC television stations after the network published a story on Wednesday saying he had done so in a meeting with military and security officials.

“It’s frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write and people should want to look into it,” Trump told reporters as he met at the White House with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Trump’s denial was backed up by a statement by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. “Recent reports that the President called for an increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal are absolutely false,” Mattis said. “This kind of erroneous reporting is irresponsible.”

NBC said that Trump made his remarks about the arsenal at a meeting with his national security advisers on July 20, and that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called him a “moron” after he left that session.

Trump first issued a denial on Twitter early Wednesday and then raised the prospect of challenging FCC licenses. NBCUniversal, the parent company of the network, is owned by Comcast Corp.

“With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!” he wrote in a tweet.

The president doubled-down on the threat Wednesday night, saying on Twitter that “Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked. Not fair to public!”

Catalonia: Two hours before deadline, Puigdemont sends ambiguous letter to Madrid

No.188909 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Carles Puigdemont, the head of the Catalonian regional government, has sent a letter to Madrid. The letter comes as a response to Madrid's request for clarification as to whether or not Puigdemont has declared Catalonia independent.

Puigdemont's letter, however, avoids answering the question directly, instead reiterating requests for dialog with Spanish PM Mariano Rajoy. Minister of Justice Rafael Catalá has declared Puigdemont's response invalid because of the lack of a clear answer. An official response from Madrid is to follow within the coming hours.

In his remarks, Catalá repeated Rajoy's earlier statement that in the event of a 'yes' reply, Puigdemont would have until Thursday to retract the declaration and return to business as usual. It's expected that Thursday will be the new deadline before Madrid takes its next step, likely toward activating article 155 of the Spanish Constitution.

California Gov. Brown declared a state of emergency Friday because of a hepatitis A outbreak that has killed at least 18 people in the state.

The declaration allows state health officials to buy additional doses of the hepatitis A vaccine to try to halt the outbreak, which is already the nation's second largest in more than two decades.

"We have the capacity to use as much vaccine as we can get our hands on," said Dr. Gil Chavez, state epidemiologist with the California Department of Public Health.

The outbreak began in San Diego's homeless community late last year, but has since spread outside the region. Los Angeles and Santa Cruz counties are also now experiencing outbreaks.

So far, 581 people in California have been sickened with the liver virus, more than half of whom have ended up in the hospital. The virus is particularly dangerous, and can be fatal, for people who already have other liver diseases, such as hepatitis B or C.

Federal health officials said last week that, even with the ongoing efforts to slow the spread of the disease, California's outbreak could last years.

"Vaccinating people at risk of exposure is the most effective tool we have to prevent the spread of hepatitis A," said California Department of Public Health Director Dr. Karen Smith.

The hepatitis A shot is already required for children, but now health officials are recommending it for people who are homeless and drug users.
