    Israeli officials say offer of talks is U.S. attempt to eclipse memories of PM's previous White House visit, seen by Israelis as a snub. White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel on Wednesday invited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Washington for talks with the U.S. President Obama on regional peace and security. "On behalf of the President I am happy to extend an invitation to visit President Obama in the White House for a working meeting to discuss our shared security interests, as well as our close co-operation in achieving peace between Israel and its neighbors," Emanuel told Netanyahu at...

    Attorney General Eric Holder made a curious selection when he invited Arab American Institute President James Zogby to be the closing speaker last month at a Justice Department conference marking the 45th anniversary of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. It was curious because Zogby has no direct tie to the Civil Rights movement. And, despite his generally favorable public image, an examination of Zogby's record shows he is an apologist for Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups like the Muslim Students Association (MSA) and terrorist organizations like Hamas and Hizballah. On top of that, he is a strident foe of the...

    DUNLAP, Iowa - Standing atop a stage in a livestock auction barn, Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton likened the experience to her quest to woo undecided voters in the closing days before Iowa's pivotal caucuses. "I've been to cattle barns before and sales before, in Arkansas, but I've never felt like I was the one that was being bid on," Clinton told a crowd in western Iowa. "I know you're going to inspect me. You can look inside my mouth if you want. I hope by the end of my time with you I can make the case for my candidacy...

    WASHINGTON – President Bush invited representatives of major industrialized and developing countries to a climate change summit in September at the same time that the United Nations is holding a similar conclave. “In recent years, science has deepened our understanding of climate change and opened new possibilities for confronting it,” Bush said in his invitation letter Friday, asking other nations to take part in discussing a long-term strategy for reducing greenhouse emissions. Under international pressure to take tough action against global warming, Bush last May had called for a meeting of nations to talk about how to reduce global greenhouse...

    MEXICO CITY - Cuban officials invited U.S. corporations Friday to lobby against the U.S. trade embargo and invest in the communist nation's energy sector, as they announced plans to double their drilling capacity and explore for oil in the island's Caribbean waters. In the first private-sector oil summit between the two countries, executives from U.S. giants like ExxonMobil Corp., Caterpillar Inc. and Valero Energy Corp. were meeting with Cuban government officials in Mexico City this week to learn about Cuba's potentially lucrative oil reserves. "We would be happy if North American companies also participated in future projects," said Raul Perez...

    DAMASCUS, Syria - Syria's top prosecutor has invited the chief U.N. investigator in the assassination of a former Lebanese prime minister for talks on coordinating the U.N. probe with Syria's newly opened one, the official news agency reported Wednesday. Prosecutor-General Ghada Murad, who heads the Syrian probe into Rafik Hariri's killing, has asked U.N. investigator Detlev Mehlis to come to Damascus "to search for the best means and mechanisms of cooperating between the two commissions," the Syrian Arab News Agency said. In a letter to Mehlis, Murad said her commission "highly appreciates your mission and is keen to unveil the...

    ( Taking a cue, perhaps, from Bush’s “bring ‘em on” speech defying terrorists in Iraq, Hezbollah’s chief Hassan Nasrallah has challenged the United States to disarm Hezbollah in Lebanon. ``What is left for them is that the Americans come themselves to disarm the resistance and the [Palestinian refugee] camps in Lebanon. I wish they would come, I wish they would come,'' he said to applauding followers at a Beirut rally. ``We tell America and all those who want to disarm the resistance in Lebanon and the resistance in Palestine to safeguard Israel...This is forbidden. It is not possible,'' Nasrallah insisted.

    It is an outrage and deeply offensive that billionaire leftist George Soros has been invited to speak at the U.S. State Department, American Conservative Union Chairman David Keene said today. Please call Colin Powell at (202) 647-4000 and express your outrage at the State Department inviting George Soros to speak. "Soros opposes everything President Bush stands for," Keene said. "He opposed the war in Iraq and he bankrolls every wacko liberal cause from population and gun control schemes, to drug legalization, radical feminism, and one-world globalism. Soros makes Ted Turner look conservative by comparison. "Worse, Soros personally wrote a $10...

    US invites relatives to claim brothers' bodies Jamie Wilson in Baghdad Saturday July 26, 2003 The Guardian (UK) The United States authorities in Iraq were last night wrestling with the thorny problem of how to dispose of the bullet-riddled bodies of Uday and Qusay Hussein after their "touched up" corpses were shown off to the world yesterday. In stark contrast to the grisly pictures released by the US military on Thursday, the bodies shown to a small group of journalists in a makeshift morgue at Baghdad airport yesterday had been shaved and their faces reconstructed in an attempt to persuade...

    Russia invites US to build Iran's nuclear reactor Nick Paton Walsh in St Petersburg and Dan de Luce in Tehran Saturday May 31, 2003 The Guardian (UK) Russia tried to ease tensions with the US over Iran yesterday, by offering to let America share in the construction of a nuclear reactor. The facility, in the Gulf port of Bushehr, is being built by Russia but the US fears it could become a platform for Iran's nuclear weapons programme. Yesterday's offer appeared deigned to reassure the US that Moscow's nuclear assistance to Iran is transparent. The offer by Russia's minister for...
