Journalists in Kashmir hardpressed due to restrictions on internet mobile services

first_imgSrinagar: With no internet and mobile services in Kashmir for over 40 days now, journalists in the Valley have been hard-pressed as a make-shift media centre set up here by the government continues to be the only connection for many with the rest of the world.The restrictions were imposed across Kashmir on the evening of August 4 a day before the Centre announced the abrogation of Article 370 provisions and bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union territories.

Harried journalists are now demanding that the government should at least restore broadband connections of media houses. We have minimal contact with our head office. We are often outside our offices here for assignments or something else and it is difficult for the head office or even our family to reach us in the absence of mobile phone services, Irfan Ahmad, a senior photojournalist, said. Another local journalist, Mudasir, who works for a daily newspaper, said information gathering has suffered due to the communication restrictions. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KWe often do not know what is happening in the city and information from other districts is hard to come by. We have to rely on official versions of the events or incidents. Reaching officials or sources especially in the other districts is very difficult, he said. During the first few days after the restrictions were imposed, the journalists could not file any stories except for the TV reports using the channels’ outdoor broadcast vans here. In the absence of any medium to send the news-reports across the country or outside, some journalists would send their reports on pen drives through flyers at the airport. The flyers would then contact the offices of the media houses which would collect the drives from him. Most media organisations, especially TV channels, sent journalists from Delhi to the Valley as their reporters were incommunicado. Around a week later, the state government’s Department of Information and Public Relations set up a ‘Media Facilitation Centre’ at a conference hall of a local hotel here. Four computers and a lone cell phone were available to cater to hundreds of journalists both local as well as from outside the state. “One often had to wait for more than half-an-hour to get a (computer) system. Then the speed was so irritating that the email would take ages to open, Firdous Ahmad, a local journalist, told PTI. Journalists have to register themselves before making a call from the cell phone and more often than not, the waiting period would stretch for hours because of the rush. We have to write down our names on a register before making a call and then wait for our turn, Ahmad said. PTIlast_img read more

Counterterrorism Morocco Replaces Turkey as New Cochair of GCTF

The Hague – The transfer of the co-presidency of the Global Counter Terrorism Forum (GCTF) from Turkey to Morocco took place here on Wednesday on the occasion of the 9th meeting of the GCTF’s coordination committee.Morocco and Netherlands will co-chair the GCTF replacing Turkey and the US.Speaking on this occasion, Minister Delegate to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Nasser Bourita said that the Moroccan-Dutch co-presidency is the culmination of a fruitful collaboration through the Working Group on foreign terrorist fighters. ”Assuming this responsibility shows the clear, determined and constructive involvement of Morocco in the fight against terrorism,” he added, noting that the Kingdom is set to strengthen the values of openness, dialogue, cooperation and sharing of experiences and good practices.Bourita highlighted efforts made by Morocco at the working group on foreign terrorist fighters and within the joint initiative with the US on border security. The Dutch foreign minister, Bert Koenders, said that the recent terror attacks, including the ones targeting Ankara, Istanbul, Lahore and Brussels, require the strengthening of counter-terrorism efforts.Koenders stressed, in this context, the importance of strengthening the exchange of information in the prospect of establishing a long-term approach including prevention of radicalization.The GCTF is an international partnership which is committed to improving worldwide cooperation on counterterrorism. The Forum is chiefly concerned with issues like de-radicalisation and strengthening the rule of law and the justice system in the fight against terrorism.With MAP read more

Open Text Corp to create 1200 jobs in Ontario with 120M grant

TORONTO — Ontario’s Liberal government announced Friday it would provide a $120-million grant to Waterloo-based Open Text Corp., Canada’s largest software company.Premier Kathleen Wynne said the grant will help create as many as 1,200 “well paying” jobs as Open Text invests $2 billion to expand its operations in Toronto, Peterborough, Kingston, Ottawa and Waterloo over the next seven years.The grant and investment by Open Text will bolster Ontario’s position as North America’s second biggest centre for information and communications technology, behind California and ahead of Texas, added Wynne.“This investment is a terrific example of how government can partner with business to help create jobs and grow the economy,” she said.Open Text, which started as a technology spin-off from the University of Waterloo in 1991 with four employees, now has more than 8,000 workers worldwide. The company reported Thursday that net earnings for the three months ended March 31 soared to $45.8 million, or 33 cents per share, as revenue rose to $442.8 million.Over the past seven years, annual revenues at Open Text have grown nearly 130 % to $1.36 billion. Shares of the company have strengthened as well, rising more than 160 % over the past five years.“We are an Ontario-grown global company and we chose to invest here because of the highly educated workforce, our strong university partnerships in R-&-D, as well as the province’s robust and innovative start-up communities,” said Open Text president and CEO Mark Barrenechea.Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak said he would stop giving money to corporations and instead would cut taxes for all businesses, not just big companies with well connected lobbyists.“So let’s replace the handout business, the $2 billion in corporate welfare, and use that money to give lower and fair taxes for all businesses to succeed,” Hudak said at a Toronto factory.“Small, medium-sized businesses don’t get the handouts, they get stuck with the bill.”But Wynne rejected Hudak’s criticism and said it is the government’s duty to team up with businesses like Open Text to ensure jobs are created and the economy keeps growing.“We are proud to support its continued growth here in the province,” she said.Last December, Wynne announced Ontario was giving another IT giant, Cisco Canada, $220 million to help create up to 1,700 new jobs in the province.Economic Development Minister Eric Hoskins said companies like Cisco and Open Text are “courted daily by presidents and senators” who want investments and jobs in their communities, so he “aggressively” pursued Open Text when he heard they were looking to expand.“Unlike the Conservatives, who would have us stand aside when these opportunities come up, we believe that we do need to compete,” Hoskins said in an interview.“When you’ve got a world class firm such as Open Text making a significant, $2 billion investment — where they can make that in any one of the 33 countries where they have a presence — we wanted them to make it here in Ontario.”Ontario gets more than 90 % of its foreign investment without using taxpayers’ money as an incentive, but the Liberal government is looking to partner with companies to attract more investment capital, especially with high-growth firms like Open Text, added Hoskins.“We feel that it’s important in terms of not just job growth, but also strengthening and anchoring even further that great high-tech cluster that we’ve got in the province,” he said. “This was an investment worth making.”Open Text sells software and data management technology used by companies to protect their electronic documents. It has been rapidly expanding over the past few years with the acquisition of several companies involved in e-learning.“We’re equally optimistic about the future that we’ll continue to grow,” Barrenechea said in an interview.“We’re putting our multi-year plans in place right now and making choices where we want to continue to establish ourselves. It’s important to have a public-private partnership to help make those choices.”— With files from David Friend. read more

Report reveals names of 110 missing

“Those who surrendered on 18 May 2009 were screened and put in a barbed wire holding area just south of the Wadduvakkal Bridge, which was in the control of the Sri Lankan armed forces. Many surrendered with an elderly Catholic Priest, Father Francis Joseph, who recorded the names of surrendees in a list for the military,” the report said. A report compiled by Yasmin Sooka, a former member of the UN panel of experts on Sri Lanka appointed by UN Secretary General Ban ki-moon, has revealed the names of 110 people said to have gone missing following the war.The list by the International Truth and Justice Project – Sri Lanka (ITJP) comprises the names of 110 people seen surrendering to the military on 18 May 2009 by eyewitnesses who have now fled the country. ITJP called on the government of Sri Lanka to undertake credible investigations into the forced disappearance of the more than a hundred people who disappeared while surrendering to the military on this day six years ago and to indict, prosecute and convict those responsible. (Colombo Gazette) The report noted that on the 18 May 2009, a large number of witnesses saw more than a hundred LTTE military and civilian administration leaders surrender to the Sri Lankan army. The vast majority of these people have subsequently disappeared and, according to eyewitnesses, were last seen in the custody of the Sri Lankan military. The report notes that many eyewitnesses saw these prisoners, and in some cases their family members, loaded on a series of buses and taken away by the military. They and the priest have not been seen since being taken custody of by the military.“These eyewitnesses live outside of Sri Lanka as they fear for their security and reprisals against family members. The ITJP is cognisant of the fact that some of the people on the list may have been released from detention after many years, without the knowledge of our witnesses. We are also aware that eyewitnesses inside Sri Lanka and family members have also registered complaints or filed court cases regarding the disappearance of additional people who surrendered on 18 May 2009,” the report added. read more

Ben Stillers new role more about hope than humour as hes named

“With over 68 million displaced people around the world today, there has never been a more compelling reason or greater urgency to show solidarity and support for refugees,” said the Hollywood star, who is best known for high profile comedy and satirical blockbusters such as the Meet the Parents trilogy, and Zoolander.In underscoring UNHCR’s tireless work in helping those fleeing war, terror and persecution globally, Mr. Stiller expressed his enormous pride in taking on this latest role.“I for one will do what I can as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNHCR, to advocate for refugees and encourage others to join me,” he said.The announcement came as Mr. Stiller concluded a trip with UNHCR to Guatemala, where he met some of the people from northern Central America who have been forced from their homes because of violence.In recent years a growing number of people across El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras have fled extraordinary, unchecked violence at the hands of organized criminal groups – including murder, rape, abduction and forcible recruitment of children into gangs.The majority of those parents who have endured forced separation at the border of the United States from their children in recent weeks, hail from these three countries, said UN human rights experts in June.Mr. Stiller spent time in Guatemala meeting refugees including unaccompanied children and seeing how UNHCR, with the Government and its partners, is working to support and protect them.I for one will do what I can […] to advocate for refugees and encourage others to join me – Ben Stiller“Here in Guatemala, the families, including children, that I met experienced fear and violence back home that is beyond imagination. They are vulnerable and have suffered immensely,” he observed, adding that “they need help.”Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees, commented: “Ben will be a great Goodwill Ambassador. I have witnessed personally his commitment to the world’s refugees and his extraordinary capacity to talk about the complicated issue of displacement in a manner that is clear, passionate and convincing.”The role of Goodwill Ambassadors is to raise awareness, generate support and give a voice to those who have been forced to leave their homes.UNHCR works with governments and partners on the ground in locations all over the world to support, protect and help refugees build better futures. UN agencies have coordinated a comprehensive regional response, including working across Guatemala.Mr. Stiller has been supporting UNHCR since early 2016, having met with refugees in Germany and Jordan, and plays a key role in UNHCR projects, including the #withrefugees campaign, said the agency.Most recently, he marked World Refugee Day in a film entitled “Homemade Chicken Shawarma, As Made By Ben Stiller and Ahmed Badr”. read more

Rachel Riley threatens legal action against Twitter users following antiSemitism row

Rachel Riley has threatened legal action against Twitter users following a row over her comments on anti-Semitism in the Labour Party.The Countdown co-presenter and the former EastEnders actress Tracy Ann Oberman are preparing to sue up to 70 people for alleged libel and harassment, according to their lawyer Mark Lewis.Twitter users had been sharing and commenting on an article published by political blogger Shaun Lawson, which accused Riley and Oberman of harassing and slandering a 16-year-old Labour supporter who was involved in an online debate.Riley and Oberman have repeatedly clashed with Labour supporters, particularly over Jeremy Corbyn’s handling of anti-Semitism allegations within his party’s ranks.Earlier this year Riley accused Mr Corbyn of “giving a legitimate voice to Holocaust denial” and “sharing platforms with terrorists” during an interview with Channel 4 presenter Krishnan Guru-Murthy.Mr Lewis has sent public messages to scores of Twitter users, informing them that he is being instructed by Riley and Oberman to take legal action against them and asking them to email him their contact details by 1 March.If they fail to reply, he writes, he will seek a court order to obtain their addresses so he can serve the legal action.He adds: “In the event that my clients are put to such expense it will add to the costs being sought from you. So that you are aware of your obligations I must inform you that I have screenshots of your tweets. Deleting Tweets without preserving Twitter Analytics is a very serious matter.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Mr Lewis said on Thursday (21 Feb) that he was preparing to take legal action against “between 60 and 70 people” who are “almost exclusively Labour supporters”.Riley said: “I have been advised by my solicitor that it would be inappropriate to make any comment.”He is instructed to take such action as necessary in response to the horrendous abuse, libel and harassment that I have been subjected to.” read more

Government launches €175m seed and venture capital scheme

first_imgA key part of the Government’s plans to support Irish businesses is to provide access to credit for a range of different types of businesses, from micro-enterprises employing fewer than 10 people up to mid-sized and large engineering companies in need of development capital.He added that “these are the companies that could develop into the next major success story for the Irish economy”.Speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland this morning, Burton said that two-thirds of jobs come from enterprises under five years old, and that over time this scheme will support 200 companies.There has “always has been a gap for seed money”, said Bruton, and the reason the State is investing in this is because venture capital is “hard to raise at the moment”.He said they would hope to attract €3 for every €1 put in and that “with the banks retreating we’ve had to step in with new interest”.A condition of the funds is that for every €1 Enterprise Ireland puts in, €2 has to be invested in Irish-based companies.Read: Unemployment down to 13.7 per cent as 20,500 find work> THE GOVERNMENT HAS announced a new seed and venture capital scheme worth €175 million.The aim of the scheme is to target high-growth Irish companies, the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, said.The Seed and Venture Capital Scheme 2013-2018 is aimed at providing additional funding for high-growth Irish companies with the potential to generate large amounts of additional export sales and grow jobs.InterestThe first call for expressions of interest from venture capital funds seeking investment was put out today.Minister Bruton is targeting an additional €525million in funding from the private sector, which will mean a total of €700million available for investment over the lifetime of the scheme.

These funds will invest in high-growth Irish companies in fast-growing sectors including ICT, life sciences, high-tech manufacturing and the green economy.This first call for expressions of interest will see Enterprise Ireland committing up to €100m to venture capital funds targeting investment in the wider ICT and life sciences sectors.It is expected that over the lifetime of the scheme it will benefit hundreds of Irish companies, generate tens of millions of euros in additional export sales and create thousands of jobs. Further expressions of interest will be issued over the next two years.Minister Bruton said:last_img read more

Colleges instructed not to allow union intervention in admissions Minister

first_imgKolkata: West Bengal Education Minister Partha Chatterjee today told the assembly that state colleges had been informed not to allow any kind of intervention by student unions during admission.

Regarding recruitment of teachers in schools, he said some people were going to court for cancelling panels. He said that if this practice continued, then the government would also move the High Court and also examine alternative ways of recruitment.last_img read more

August 10, 2009 – iPhone application estimates patients’ cumulative radiation doses as a result of medical exams and then calculates the associated cancer risk.A fourth-year radiology resident at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, hopes iPhone and iTouch users will use a $2.99 application launched in May that aggregates available research to estimate a patient’s cumulative radiation.The co-creators of the application, Dr. Mark Otto Baerlocher, and Adrian Baerlocher, a computer programmer, say the point of the application is to raise awareness among patients and physicians about radiation risk associated with some radiology and radiology-related exams. The Radiation Passport program allows users to enter exam histories, medical instructions and appointments. It is similar in principle to a website operated by a group of radiology residents in the United States (www.xrayrisk.com). According to Dr. Donald Frush, chair of the American College of Radiology Pediatric Imaging Commission and a member of the Image Gently campaign, indicates that while he supports increasing awareness, there is concern because Radiation Passport may not help patients understand the balance between the risks and benefits, and a patient may refuse a CT exam because the program says they’re risk is high.Source: Canadian Medical Association Journal For more information: www.cmaj.ca FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Arthur Agatston explains the history of CT calcium scoring Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 9:54Loaded: 1.67%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -9:54 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Trade deal wipes out tariffs on more than 200 tech products

first_img Top Stories New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Mesa family survives lightning strike to home American companies sell $100 billion a year in products covered by the deal. U.S. Trade Rep. Michael Froman called the agreement “great news for the American works and businesses that design manufacture and export state-of-the-art technology and information products.”Froman’s office says the deal will support 60,000 American jobs.Not all 161 WTO member countries signed on to the expanded deal; 49 did. But all will benefit because it eliminates the tariffs on dozens of tech products no matter which WTO country they come from. Tariffs are taxes imposed on imported goods.In order for the deal to take effect, however, countries signing the accord must account for 90 percent of global trade in technology products. Taiwan, a big producer of electronics, has faced considerable domestic pressure not to join. Along with four other countries — Thailand, Turkey, Columbia and Mauritius — Taiwan asked Friday for more time to consider the agreement.Talks on revising the technology agreement began in 2012. The breakthrough occurred when the U.S. and China worked out most of their differences during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Washington last November. Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day Negotiators still must complete technical details and a timetable for eliminating the tariffs. The work is expected to be complete by the time WTO trade ministers meet in Nairobi, Kenya, in December.Once implemented, the agreement will require countries to eliminate trade tariffs on most new-generation semi-conductors, satellite navigation systems, medical products that include magnetic resonance imaging machines, machine tools for manufacturing printed circuits, telecommunications satellites and touch screens within three years starting in 2016, the WTO said.“This deal will cut costs for consumers and business, in particular for smaller firms, which have been hit especially hard by excessive tariffs in the past,” EU trade chief Cecilia Malmstrom said in a statement.___Jordans reported from Berlin.Associated Press Writer Geir Moulson contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press.

first_img Comments Share Here’s a closer look at Thomas, By The Numbers: 1Thomas was the No. 1 performer among quarterbacks in three drills at the NFL Scouting Combine — the 40-yard dash (4.61 seconds), vertical jump (35.5 inches) and broad jump (nine feet, 10 inches). He finished second in the 20-yard shuttle behind Johnny Manziel and third in the three-cone drill behind Jordan Lynch and Manziel. 1.36While Thomas is off the charts physically, he posted just a 1.36 touchdown-to-interception ratio throughout his Virginia Tech career. 6Thomas was the sixth quarterback taken, and was also selected ahead of big names like A.J. McCarron, Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger. 59.8The best completion percentage of Thomas’ VT career came as a sophomore, when he completed 59.8 of his passes in his first year as a starter. 73The longest run of Thomas’ Virgina Tech career was a 73-yard touchdown as a junior against Miami.77Thomas accounted for 77 touchdowns in his Hokies career, 24 of which came on the ground while 53 came via passes.

institutions rigged the $5 trillion-a-day foreign-exchange market by coordinating their trades over private online chats US authorities fined four major banks not including HSBC nearly $6 billion in 2015 over the scandal Johnson 50 and Scott 43 are alleged to have conducted a scheme of so-called front running which involved purchasing British currency ahead of a client’s transaction in late 2011 in order to make the deal more profitable for HSBC and ultimately themselves “Specifically the complaint alleges that Johnson and Scott caused the $35 billion foreign exchange transaction to be executed in a manner that was designed to spike the price of the Pound Sterling to the benefit of HSBC and at the expense of their client” said the DoJ statement adding that HSBC allegedly made about $8 million in profits from the transaction An HSBC spokesman told the Guardian the bank “continues to cooperate” with the investigation "As alleged the defendants placed personal and company profits ahead of their duties of trust and confidentiality owed to their client and in doing so defrauded their client of millions of dollars" US Attorney Robert L Capers said in the statement issued

implying that it’s tied to her race Sen Dick Durbin the No 2 Democrat in the upper chamber argued that the four-month delay of Lynch the first African-American woman nominated for the post may be related to her race Using wording suggestive of the days of segregation he said that Lynch had been told to “sit in the back of the bus” Durbin said that there was "no substantive reason" for delaying Lynchs confirmation process which has been the longest for an Attorney General nominee in 30 years and longer than the past five nominees combined "This is the first African-American woman in the history of the United States to be nominated to serve as attorney general It is a civil rights milestone" said Durbin "Why has the Senate Republican leadership decided to target this good woman and to stop her from serving as the first African-American attorney general of the United States of America There is no good reason There is no substantive reason" "Loretta Lynch the first African-American woman nominated to be attorney general is asked to sit in the back of the bus when it comes to the Senate calendar" he added “That is unfair its unjust it is beneath the decorum and dignity of the United States Senate This woman deserves fairness" Durbins comments echoed those of Democratic Rep GK Butterfield the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus who said Tuesday that race "certainly can be considered a major factor" in her delay But Durbins rhetoric Wednesday is a clear escalation from those of his Democratic colleagues White House spokesman Josh Earnest reiterated Tuesday that Lynch is well qualified for the post but did not remark on her race “Well let me just say that if Ms Lynch were not confirmed by the United States Senate it would be an astonishing display of partisanship” said Earnest “Particularly given the fact that not a single member of the United States Senate has raised a legitimate concern about her aptitude for that office” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said that the Lynch vote won’t occur until after the Senate passes a bill that would help victims of sex trafficking which Democrats have been filibustering recently over abortion provisions McConnell spokesman Don Stewart said that the Lynch nomination is next on the schedule and would occur as soon as Democrats lifted their obstruction "The only thing holding up that vote is the Democrats filibuster of a bill that would help prevent kids from being sold into sex slavery" said Stewart "The sooner they allow the Senate to pass that bipartisan bill the sooner the Senate can

leveled against her Adeosun’s official credentials reportedly showed that she parades a purported fake NYSC exemption certificate which was issued in September 2009 granting her exemption from the mandatory national service on account of age However CACOL in a statement signed by its Executive Chairman Debo Adeniran and sent to DAILY POST said requested Adeosun to respond to the allegations of certificate forgery leveled against her or throw in the towel The statement reads “What should not be encouraged under any guise is a reign of impunity as the country steers towards consolidation of its democratic culture This scandal in which Mrs Adeosun is presently enmeshed is a vindication of CACOL’s position taken as far back as 2015 that she was not morally upright to hold public office based on her past “We recollect that this scandal- which was first broken by PremiumTimesOnline Newspaper-had resulted in the Finance Minister becoming vulnerable to blackmail from members of the National Assembly “She was reported to have approved fictitious budget heads on several occasions and actually authorized the disbursement of huge sums of money that were not approved by President Muhammadu Buhari to the National Assembly If this is found to be true it is not only a criminal but a clear violation of fiscal discipline and accountability “The nation is presently facing a lot of challenges which require the present administration’s undivided attention-ranging from Fulani herdsmen-farmers crisis to banditry social dislocation and economic crunch and cannot therefore afford to be bogged down by any distractions or controversy arising from the recklessness of any public official “Our current situation as a nation demands that public officers serving the current government should be seen to be above board in implementing the administration’s Change agenda Public officers are also compulsorily required to demonstrate transparency responsibility and accountability in steering the ship of state” “It is in this regard that we therefore call on President Buhari to immediately wade into this matter by suspending Mrs Kemi Adeosun from her position as the Minister of Finance in order to allow full investigation into the circumstances surrounding the forgery allegation and misappropriation of funds under her Ministry “This is necessary to reinforce public

season of KUWTK that will return in the spring With reporting from AILI NAHAS and PERNILLA CEDENHEIM This article originally appeared on PEOPLEcom Contact us at editors@timecomA public debate is unfolding in Egypt about whether to expand the countrys role in military invention against Houthi rebels in Yemen creating a political predicament that could undermine the Saudi-led campaign to support the government Egypt said it would join the coalition that is bombing Yemen to combat the Houthis and the forces loyal to Yemens former President Ali Abdullah Saleh Egypt sent naval vessels to Yemens coast and Egyptian officials have said that a ground assault was planned But now there are signs that public anxiety is creating a dilemma for Egypts President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi who must balance the concerns of a public worried about domestic security and social problems and the pull of Saudi Arabia a close ally that has donated billions to Egypts government Looming large in the public consciousness is the legacy of Egypts invasion of Yemen in 1962 and five years of fighting in which more than 10000 Egyptian soldiers died The war is remembered as a disaster which partially contributed to Egypts 1967 defeat by Israel in the Six-Day War In 1967 Egypt had some 70000 troops in Yemen and many Egyptians see Yemen as Egypts Vietnam The memory of Egypts war in Yemen has been resurrected in recent weeks by skeptical pundits newspaper columnists and political parties who oppose sending troops Among the critics of intervention is Mohamed Hassanein Heikal a commentator and confidant of the late President Gamal Abdel Nasser who ordered the 1962 invasion "We shouldnt jump to war" he said on TV this month "Yemen is a sleeping volcano south of the Arabian Peninsula If it erupts it will sweep the entire region" President al-Sisi responded to critics on April 4 saying that Egypts current role in the Saudi-led campaign could not be compared with the 1962 invasion saying he cared for "every drop of blood and every son of this country" The debate could complicate the calculations of Saudi officials At the outset of the assault on Yemen Saudi Arabia touted the participation of 10 countries in the coalition That message was dealt a setback last week when Pakistans parliament voted against joining the intervention The Pakistani decision in turn was front-page news in Egypt "This all puts the Saudi position in quite a quandary if they intended something far more muscular because they were clearly trying to rely on subcontractors so to speak" said Yezid Sayigh a senior associate at the Carnegie Middle East Center in Beirut He added the Saudis are now faced with the prospect that "unless they were willing to put their own army on the ground then they have no ground option" Saudi Arabias Defense Minister Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud met President al-Sisi on Tuesday They discussed the Yemen crisis and the two agreed on "a major strategic military maneuver on Saudi territory" But no announcement was made about a commitment of Egyptian troops to Yemen The Yemen debate also comes when Egypts military and security forces are battling an insurgency in the Sinai Peninsula and facing a steady string of bombs and armed attacks in Cairo and other cities On Sunday alone 13 people were killed in two separate bomb attacks in north Sinai "Its been a bad couple of days in Sinai and that magnifies the anxieties because youre going off to tend to this foreign engagement at a time when youve got perhaps containable but mounting problems at home" said Michael Hanna a fellow at the Century Foundation in New York City In Egypts polarized political context some commentators dismiss the concerns about the operation in Yemen as speculation "It’s very uninformed anxiety because there’s no comparison to the intervention that happened during the glory of the Nasser years" says Hisham Kassem the former publisher of the privately owned newspaper al-Masry al-Youm "None of us is in a position to speak about the military operation itself" “Egypt is not really participating" says retired Egyptian Brigadier General Safwat al-Zayat "The planning was Saudi-American Saudi Arabia will decide with American consultation who will participate and at what level" Khaled Fahmy a professor of history at the American University in Cairo said the current debate in Egypt contrasted with the political situation in Egypt during the last Yemen war in the 1960s "Back in the ’60s when Nasser sent Egyptian troops to Yemen no one expressed any anxiety There was no debate" he said "Now in Egypt in spite of the fact we dont have a sitting parliament people are writing People are talking so much so that the President had to allay these fears" The recent signs of dissent also come in the wake of a sweeping state clampdown on political opponents following the militarys removal of elected President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013 Morsis presidency and his removal left the public deeply divided with many backing the military "This is the kind of situation where they [the state] could face very real public disgruntlement and dissent There are very few issues that could produce that kind of reaction This seems like one" said Hanna "There has been an interesting level of questioning That hasnt been the case in the past year and a half" Contact us at editors@timecom 7’” Why the reporter was sent to keep tabs Gonzalez’s courtroom has become one of the biggest questions in the strange saga of the recent sale of the
