"It is not surprising that the United States of America has included the Secretary-General of the Movement of Babylon, which represents the minorities and that has suffered an oppressive step in the list of unjust US sanctions," the movement said, noting that "this decision is certainly came after hostile introductions and campaigns led by the media supported By Washington against the Christians who fought and urged.

  10. Trump says US warship destroys Iranian drone in Strait of Hormuz amid heightened tensions The US military shot down an Iranian drone on Thursday that came within 1,000 yards of one of its naval vessels in the Strait of Hormuz, President Donald Trump said. (AFP) Updated 59 sec ago AP July 18, 201922:18 The incident marked a new escalation of tensions between US and Iran The Pentagon said the incident happened at 10 a.m. local time Thursday WASHINGTON: A US warship on Thursday destroyed an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz after it threatened the ship, President Donald Trump said. The incident marked a new escalation of tensions between the countries less than one month after Iran downed an American drone in the same waterway and Trump came close to retaliating with a military strike. In remarks at the White House, Trump blamed Iran for a “provocative and hostile” action and said the US responded in self-defense. He said the Navy’s USS Boxer, an amphibious assault ship, took defensive action after the Iranian aircraft closed to within 1,000 yards of the ship and ignored multiple calls to stand down. “The United States reserves the right to defend our personnel, facilities and interests and calls upon all nations to condemn Iran’s attempts to disrupt freedom of navigation and global commerce,” Trump said. The Pentagon said the incident happened at 10 a.m. local time Thursday in international waters while the Boxer was transiting the waterway to enter the Arabian Gulf. The Boxer is among several US Navy ships in the area, including the USS Abraham Lincoln, an aircraft carrier that has been operating in the nearby North Arabian Sea for weeks. “A fixed-wing unmanned aerial system approached Boxer and closed within a threatening range,” chief Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said in a written statement. “The ship took defensive action against the UAS to ensure the safety of the ship and its crew.” http://www.arabnews.com/node/1527621/middle-east
  11. "It's Going To Be Staggering": Epstein Associates Prepare For Worst As Massive Document Dump Imminent by Tyler Durden Thu, 07/18/2019 - 09:54 As the Jeffrey Epstein case continues to unfold, a laundry list of celebrities, business magnates and socialites who have flown anywhere near the registered sex offender's orbit are now tainted with pedo-polonium. Many of them, such as Bill Clinton, Ehud Barak, and Victoria's Secret boss Les Wexner have sought to distance themselves from Epstein and his activities - however their attempts have fallen on deaf ears considering their extensive ties to the pedophile. As Vanity Fair's Gabriel Sherman notes, "The questions about Epstein are metastasizing much faster than they can be answered: Who knewwhat about Epstein’s alleged abuse? How, and from whom, did Epstein get his supposed $500 million fortune? Why did Acosta grant Epstein an outrageously lenient non-prosecution agreement? (And what does it mean that Acosta was reportedly told Epstein “belonged to intelligence”?)" Also illuminating is a statement by attorney Brad Edwards, who said during a Wednesday press conference seated next to Epstein accuser Courtney Wild that "There were other business associates of Mr. Epstein’s who engaged in improper sexual misconduct at one or more of his homes. We do know that," adding "In due time the names are going to start coming out." What's more, the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit will release of approximately 2,000 pages of documents, likely over the next several days, which may reveal sex crimes committed by "numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders," according to the court's three-judge panel. Other famous names associated with Epstein include LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman, Elon Musk, and Mark Zuckerberg, who Musk introduced to the registered sex-offender. Zuckerberg spokesman told Vanity Fair "Mark met Epstein in passing one time at a dinner honoring scientists that was not organized by Epstein," adding "Mark did not communicate with Epstein again following the dinner." Musk told the magazine "I don’t recall introducing Epstein to anyone, as I don’t know the guy well enough to do so, Epstein is obviously a creep and Zuckerberg is not a friend of mine. Several years ago, I was at his house in Manhattan for about 30 minutes in the middle of the afternoon with Talulah [Riley], as she was curious about meeting this strange person for a novel she was writing. We did not see anything inappropriate at all, apart from weird art. He tried repeatedly to get me to visit his island. I declined." 159 people are talking about this According to one source, Epstein had a steady stream of who's who's flowing into his Manhattan mansion, including Bill Gates, Larry Summers, and Steve Bannon. "Jeffrey collected people. That’s what he did," the source told Vanity Fair. DC on edge "Epstein bragged about his contacts in Washington," said attorney David Boies. According to the report, "One theory circulating among prominent Republicans is that Epstein was a Mossad agent. Another is that the George W. Bush White House directed Acosta not to prosecute Epstein to protect Prince Andrew on behalf of the British government." "The royal family did everything they could to try and discredit the Prince Andrew stuff," said Boies. "When we tried to follow up with anything, we were stonewalled. We wanted to interview him, they were unwilling to do anything." And now we await those documents. Meanwhile, Epstein's bail hearing is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on Thursday. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-17/its-going-be-staggering-epstein-associates-prepare-worst-massive-document-dump

  15. Italian charge of fraud on Iraqi oil shipment rejected EconomyOilItalyIraq 2019/07/18 05:01:58 Ani has filed a complaint against a former oil operations manager who accused him of fraud over a suspected Iraqi crude oil shipment, amid fears within the Italian oil giant that the rejected shipment may have contained Iranian oil under US sanctions. In the complaint to the Milan prosecutor's office, Eni accused its former director of operations and operations, Alessandro Des Dorides, of misleading all parties to the deal and of hiding the role of a small Italian oil-selling company called Napage. Informed sources said two other senior employees were either reduced to their job grades or suspended due to the rejected shipment. Eni said it stopped its dealings with Napage in February because of a separate investigation by prosecutors in Milan about possible obstruction of justice by members of Eni's former legal team. The company said it had dismissed Des Dordes at the end of May after six months in office for what it described as a separate petrochemical deal with Napaj in 2018. Nabaj did not respond to an e-mail request for comment or telephone calls. Des Dordes did not respond to several requests for comments from Reuters via e-mail or LinkedIn. Reuters was unable to reach a legal representative. Eni refused to comment too, and she did not comment on ongoing investigations nor on internal procedures due. Internal panic The shipment of crude oil arrived on board the White Moon at the end of May for unloading at the Milazzo refinery in Sicily, where Eni has a stake. The Italian giant, which produces oil in Iraq and is a regular buyer of Iraqi crude, is the sole responsible for the shipment. However, Eni said it had rejected the shipment because it did not match Basrah Light specifications it was expecting to receive from the other side, the trading arm of Nigeria-based Oando. After three weeks off the coast, White Moon returned to the Gulf. The carrier's manager did not respond to the request for comment. Two sources in Eni said the 1 million-barrel shipment created a panic within the company for fear that the oil would be Iranian, even partially. Dealing with Iranian oil means breaking the sanctions the United States reintroduced or expanded last year after the withdrawal from the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers. Washington aims to cut Iranian crude exports to zero and force Tehran to renegotiate the nuclear deal, curb its missile program and adjust its behavior in the Middle East. Iran called on other parties to the agreement to protect it from the effects of US sanctions and sought to circumvent US restrictions by selling more of its oil hidden. Eni measures The head of the Italian Senate Industry Committee said he had written to Eni chief executive Claudio Discalzi in writing after the White Moon shipment was rejected in June to clarify the origins of the oil shipment, which was supposed to be Iraqi. The Chairman of the Committee declined to comment on the potential origin of the oil. Eni said it had bought crude from Nigeria's Oando, which also bought oil from Italy's Napage Group in London. Oando said she had recovered the shipment from Eni but declined to comment further on the origin of the shipment because it was in the midst of a decision on the rejected shipment. The terms of the deal were "normal for the oil trading industry," she said. Italian prosecutors can not legally comment on an investigation unless there is an exceptional circumstance. Sources familiar with the deal said the conditions for the shipment of crude had to ring the alarm internally even before arriving in Sicily. It added that the offer included a large discount compared to the sale of Iraqi conventional oil was provided by a company is considered new to the region with the payment of the euro. The dollar is traded in most of the oil trading in the current market. Eni said the discrepancy in the chemical composition of crude oil "coupled with other warning signals led to the decision to cancel the treatment." According to sources directly familiar with the deal, the oil that was loaded on the White Moon tanker came through two transfers from ship to ship, making it more difficult to track the shipment. The sources added that the oil that came from the company Oando was loaded on the White Death of another ship called "New Prosperity" but the same ship received oil from a third carrier called "Apis". According to ship tracking data on Reventive Aikon, Abyss regularly flies across the Gulf in the Middle East with its transmitter turned off for days at a time. The transmitter was shut down between April 24 and May 3 when it was transporting oil to New Prosperity. It is unusual for ships to shut down their tracking systems for safety reasons. Apart from the dismissal of Des Dordes, the company said Mauro Cavaina, financial director of Eni's trading department, was removed from office at the end of June and replaced by compliance manager Francesco Mitranjolo. Cavina is still an employee of Eni. Three informed sources said the removal of Cafaina was linked to the White Moon incident, and Francesca Deladio, operations manager, had also been suspended for the same reason. https://www.shafaaq.com/ar/اقتصـاد/اتهام-ايطالي-بالاحتيال-بشأن-شحنة-نفط-عراقية-مرفوضة/
