    TEL AVIV – A staunch denier of the Holocaust who long served as the deputy of late PLO leader Yasser Arafat served on the committee that invented the military doctrine used by President Obama as the main justification for U.S. and international airstrikes against Libya. As WND first reported, billionaire philanthropist George Soros is a primary funder and key proponent of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect, the world's leading organization pushing the military doctrine. Several of the doctrine's main founders sit on multiple boards with Soros. The doctrine and its founders, as WND reported, have been deeply tied...

    Europe’s disappointment with Barack Obama’s presidency is laid bare today as the EU’s most senior figure calls for a dramatic effort to revive transatlantic relations. The President of the European Commission told The Times that the new era at the White House was in danger of becoming a “missed opportunity” for Europe. José Manuel Barroso said that the EU-US relationship was “not living up to its potential” and was being marred by fundamental disagreements on how to deal with the economic crisis, climate change and trade reform. The feelings of a deepening rift are mutual. Senior US figures said last...

    Tehran will today be offered the chance of international assistance to develop a peaceful nuclear energy programme if it halts uranium enrichment — or face punishing sanctions within a month. Javier Solana, the European Union chief, will deliver the message to Iranian leaders today as the head of a six-member international delegation of senior diplomats from Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany. The “carrot and stick package” outlined by British officials this week offers Iran a range of incentives to begin negotiations but not until it has halted all Iranian enrichment. Officials acknowledge that the package differs little to that...

    EU Ministers Duck Iran Nuclear Issue for Now September 08, 2007 Reuters Paul Taylor VIANA DO CASTELO, Portugal -- Iran's nuclear programme has slipped so far down the European Union's agenda that it did not even figure at a two-day brainstorming session of the bloc's 27 foreign ministers this week. Diplomats said the absence of discussion of what the United States sees as one of the main threats to international security does not mean the issue had fallen off Europe's radar screen. But EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana, who has held long-running nuclear talks with Iran's national security chief,...

    Should the Israelis be allowed time to carry out the destruction of Hezbollah, or should they be told to stop now? ...The Finns, who are in the chair, and the French and the Italians argued that they should call for an immediate ceasefire. But with Britain and Germany arguing the more American line, the eventual statement only said: "It is urgent to stop violence." The distinction may not be huge but it's the sort of thing foreign ministers wrangle over for hours. The secondary question is whether the Israeli action should be condemned alongside Hezbollah. The Finns and French had...

    Polish president Lech Kaczynski has said it is too early for the creation of an EU foreign minister post, following calls from Paris for a strengthened role for EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana. Mr Kaczynski made his remarks in an interview with German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung ahead of a two-day first visit to Berlin on Wednesday and Thursday (8-9 March). It is "too early for a European foreign minister," the Polish leader said, adding that the time is not ripe for the creation of a European diplomatic service either. The Polish stance comes amid French calls for quicker...

    Bonn - Afghan President Hamid Karzai arrived in Germany late on Sunday under tight security for a conference aimed at returning Afghanistan's pressing problems to the international spotlight. Monday's meeting, which marks the anniversary of an historic deal creating a post-conflict government for Afghanistan, will also measure progress made since last year's fall of the radical Islamic Taliban regime, which harboured the al-Qaeda network. Karzai will attend the one-day event in Petersberg, near Bonn, along with other senior Afghan leaders. German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer, UN special envoy Lakhdar Brahimi and EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana...
