Iraq Old Grievances Fuel Deadly Protests

In Iraq old grievances fuel protests 2018 News

In Iraq old grievances fuel protests 2018  In a battle with an Islamic nation that is a militant group, Iraqis unite with a common enemy. But just months after Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared victory against jihad activists, a series of protests spread to several cities, once the social complaints once burned in the burner. Since its eruption in the oil-rich Basra on July 8, people have been angered by unemployment, high prices, power cuts and available water scarcity.

The question of people's mouths, from Basra to the capital, Baghdad, was the question, "Where is the government?" Due to May's electoral failure, the same inquiry did not make the new dismissal a record-breaking. He emphasized contempt for Iraqi political leaders. So far, eight people have been killed during protests, several sources said there was a brief Internet outage and authorities claimed 260 security personnel were wounded.

Explosion of anger '
This demonstration means an explosion of anger over the entire system that blatantly stole the opportunity for a better life for Iraqis, said Iraqi expert Fanar Haddad. The failure of Iraqi political education in all aspects of administration and economic management has become a sharper remedy," Haddad added.

For more than a week, demonstrators set off on the streets seeking ways to leave the country, the second largest producer of OPEC oil cartels, to 38 million citizens.

In some cases, the security forces started live broadcasts to prevent public property and protesters who fired at the headquarters of the party.

Authorities say people in distress have turned violent peaceful demonstrations.

After the NAT conference on which IS's ongoing agenda was on the agenda, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi flew from Brussels to Basra last week to restore tranquility. The Prime Minister has invested $ 3 billion in the province of Basra and promised to spend more on housing, schools and services.

Some cabinet members have called a strong tribal chief in southern Iraq and urged them to exercise their influence to restore order in the region. When Abadi was elected in 2014, the prime minister pledged to deal with climate corruption and at that stage vowed to get rid of Jihadists in Iraq, which accounted for a third of the country.

He was praised for overseeing the war effort. But his supporters say the war on corruption will take time. Iraq has been voted the 12th most corrupt country in the world by the Transparency International Organization.

'Cosmetic concession'
The investment commitment to Basra will not satisfy the protesters that Abadi may not be able to lead the next government, political analyst Hisham al-Hashemi says.

The election placed the prime minister's Victory Alliance in third place.

And his block was provisionally united with a nationalist minister, Moktada Sadr, in June, but the coalition will still occupy only 96 of the 329 members. However, despite the political turmoil over two months after the election, even fragmented outcomes are subject to review in some areas. - Hashemi expects the demonstration movement to be dizzy.

"They do not have leadership, political identity or media support to bring legitimate demands," he says. And sticks are placed along with carrots. The authorities arrested dozens of activists and ordered others to take the streets by posting protests online.

As the protests are expected to spread on Saturday, the Internet has been blocked nationwide. Officials said the closure was due to maintenance work and Iraq is almost back online on Monday. But Iraqis still could not connect to social networks. Haddad pointed out that the protests could end in suggesting temporary solutions until the political temperatures cool down, pointing out that anger over public services during the summer tends to be historically boiling.

"The Iraqi political class is dragging the bunkers, waiting for the storm to pass, promises of makeup and reforms coming out," he said. But the problem facing Iraq is "a long-term" requiring much more than Iraq's self-interested political class can provide.

Israeli parliament passes contentious Jewish nation bill 2018

Israeli contentious Jewish nation bill 2018 Israeli parliament on Thursday approved the country as a Jewish nation, but approved a bill of controversy that critics warn minority critics. The government says the bill, which was passed in the early hours of the morning, will only bring Israel's existing personality to law. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called it "a historical moment in the history of Zionism and a history of the nation of Israel."

"Israel is a state of Jewish nation that respects the individual rights of all citizens," he said. "I repeat that this is our state, a Jewish nation."

"Recently, there are people who are trying to make this problem unstable," he added, adding that it destabilizes the foundations of our existence and rights. "Today we have established a law of stone, this is our country, this is our language, this is our nation, and this is our flag. Israel's Declaration of Independence in 1948 defined its nature as a Jewish and democratic state, a delicate balance of bustle for 70 years.

Opponents of the new bill say Arab minorities have alienated about 20% and have downgraded Arabs to "special" status in public officials. The law passed with 62-55 supporters and two Knesset members abstained. The bill, stipulated in the "Basic Act", is likely to challenge the Supreme Court while granting a semi-constitutional status.

The lawmakers, in one way and the other, argued in Congress one after another in order to vigorously express their views. Ayman Odeh, head of the Arab Joint List, warned of the implications of the law and shook the black flag while speaking.

"This is an evil law," he told lawmakers, adding that "a black flag is on it."

"Today I must say to all my children in the Palestinian Arab city that I declare that they do not want us here," Odeh said in a statement. "He passed the Jewish supremacy law and said we would always be a second class citizen."

Beciny Begin, the son of Israeli Prime Minister Messany Begin, warned the party's founder of the Likany party of the Netanyahu ruling on the party's human rights record.

"This is not a decision the Likud party leadership expected," he said.

Eugene Kontorovich, director of international law at the conservative Jerusalem think tank, Kohelet Policy Forum, "is similar to the provisions of many Western democracy constitutions." Population.

Kontorovic accused the bill of "false wrath" as another attempt to "simply select the Jewish state and defend the double standards".

American Jewish organizations also expressed opposition to the law.

The American Jewish Committee, a group representing the Jewish Diaspora, said it was "disappointed" that the founders of Israel had jeopardized the promise to build a Jewish and democratic state.

Jeremy Ben Ami, president of J-street, a liberal pro-Israel group in Washington, said the purpose of the bill was "to send a message to the Arab community, the LGBT community and other ethnic minorities in Israel that they will never be equal and not equal. Citizen said to send ".

"The strong ties between Israel and the Jews are based on this value of Israel as both Jewish and democratic," Ben Ami said, expressing concern that the bill would weaken the power of Israel's democracy.

Lawmakers on Sunday allowed the creation of an "independent community" and critics removed the most controversial clause in the bill, which they called racists.

Israelis, including President Reuven Rivlin and the Attorney General, opposed draft draft legislation. Israeli opponents of the bill, which is considered to be discriminatory on Saturday in Tel Aviv, have made a number of protests on the streets.

GDP Growth Beats ADB’s Projection For 2016-17

No comments :

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) said Pakistan's economic growth rate (2016-17) surpassed international lending expectations three months ago.

The Asian Development Outlook (ADO) released in April predicted GDP growth of 5.2% in 2016-17. In contrast, according to an economic survey released by the Treasury, the growth rate reached 5.28 percent, the highest in nine months.

The ADO supplement, published by ADB on Thursday, said the country's economic growth was backed by sustained recovery in agriculture and steady growth in services, as well as the revival of agriculture. Strong private consumption has made the biggest contribution to growth.

The report predicts that South Asia's economic prospects will be solid and will increase by 7% in 2017 and 7.2% in 2018. ADB projected a growth rate of 5.5pc in Pakistan in 2017-18.


According to the ADB report, Asia 's developing economies' prospects for economic growth in 2017 recovered to stronger export demand in the first quarter of this year. We also upgraded the region's growth outlook from 5.7pc to 5.9pc in 2017 and from 5.7pc to 5.8pc in 2018. The rising exchange rate in 2018 reflects a cautious view on the sustainability of this export promotion.

"Asian development is a good start with export improvements that boost growth prospects for the rest of the year 2017," said ADB chief economist Yasuyuki Sawada. "Despite uncertainty over the strength of the global economic recovery Nonetheless, we think the local economy is facing a potential impact on the prospects. "

The combined growth of major industrial economies is expected to remain at 1.9% in 2017 and 2018. The slowdown in US growth was offset by 2.2% as the outlook for the euro area and Japan improved due to sluggish domestic demand.
