    The European Union could remove Colombian guerilla movement FARC from its list of known terrorists, pending the signing of the peace agreement between the group and the country’s government. EurActiv Spain reports.Ahead of a formalization of the deal between FARC and the Colombian government, the EU indicated that it could soon remove the group from its terrorist blacklist. “FARC currently sits on the list of terrorist organizations in Colombia,” confirmed European Commission spokesperson Maja Kocijancic today (26 September), adding that the EU “has strongly supported the Colombia peace deal”. […] The European Court of Justice last week recommended that Hamas...

    Stop by your local post office and you might just see a poster of Rodrigo “Timochenko” Londono hanging next to the Most Wanted posters of bank robbers and fugitives. The State Department is offering a $5 million reward for information about the Communist terrorist leader. But all the State Department had to do was ask Secretary of State Kerry. Obama did the wave with the Cuban dictator and Kerry met with Timochenko , the leader of FARC, a Marxist terrorist organization that appears on his own department’s list of foreign terrorist organizations a little above Al Qaeda. Timochenko is a...

    North Korea said it could stop its nuclear tests in exchange for signing a peace treaty with the U.S. and a stop to annual military exercises between the U.S. and South Korea. The North's statement carried by the state media late Friday was a repeat of past offers that have been rejected by the U.S., which wants Pyongyang to commit to a complete abandonment of nuclear weapons. An unnamed spokesman of the North's Foreign Ministry called the purported hydrogen bomb test on Jan. 6 a justifiable move to ensure its survival against external threats. ...

    US Secretary of State John Kerry will offer Israeli and Palestinian negotiators a political trade-off: Israeli recognition of the 1967 lines as a basis for the future Palestinian state, in return for Palestinian recognition of Israel as the state of the Jewish people, Palestinian sources told the Saudi daily Al-Watan on Sunday. According to the sources, the mutual recognition will constitute the core of a framework agreement to be signed by the end of January, and negotiated in greater detail during the following months. “The coming weeks will be difficult for the Palestinian and Israeli sides, since they will need...

    Tamarod, the Egyptian movement which led the opposition to ousted President Mohammed Morsi, apparently now has a new target: the peace treaty with Israel. Egyptian media reported on Saturday that Tamarod, which amassed 22 signatures to a petition demanding Morsi’s departure before the army ousted him in July, is now collecting signatures to a new initiative calling to cancel the peace treaty signed between Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin in 1979. Tamarod’s latest initiative, according to the reports, comes in the wake of what they called the “unacceptable U.S. interference in Egypt’s political affairs.” The...

    The relationship established in 1978-9 between Israel and Egypt constituted a significant change in the mindset of the international community. It was a revolutionary change that laid the foundation for the ensuing Middle East peace process. In Article III of the peace treaty, Egypt and Israel undertake: “to ensure that acts or threats of belligerency, hostility, or violence do not originate from and are not committed from within its territory, or by any forces subject to its control or by any other forces stationed on its territory.” Both states are obligated to prevent the use of their territory for acts...

    The decision to halt Egyptian natural gas exports to Israel was not due simply to commercial differences, international shareholders in EMG said yesterday, dismissing claims they were behind in payments. "Any attempts to characterize this dispute as a mere commercial one is misleading," shareholders in East Mediterranean Gas Co. (EMG) said in a statement to Reuters. "This is a government-backed contract sealed by a memorandum of understanding between Egypt and Israel that specifically refers to the [1979] peace treaty."Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has tried to play down termination of the 2005 deal, saying cancellation of the contract supplying Israel with...

    The prevailing optimism in media reports concerning the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafist party's readiness to adhere to the peace treaty with Israel is based on general statements made by senior officials in both parties. These statements maintain that Egypt must honor the international treaties that it signed. Yet a more rigorous examination of the two parties' stances identifies a markedly different tendency. Both seek a way to cast off the Camp David agreement in a manner that will incur minimal diplomatic and economic damage to Egypt, and restore Egypt to its leading role in the circle of states...

    Amid the Islamic tsunami sweeping Egypt's parliamentary elections the ultra-conservative Salafist Nour party says it is willing to hold talks with Israel. Salafi al-Nour Party spokesman Yousri Hammad told Egypt's daily al-Arabia that reports party chairman Emad Abdul Ghafour was willing to maintain contacts with Israel were true - and added doing so did not violate Islamic principles. “We have not received an official request from Israel yet, but if we sit with Israel, it has to be through the Egyptian Foreign Ministry,” he said. The Salafi al-Nour Party garnered about 25 percent of the votes in the first and...

    The Maoist government of Nepal has collapsed after a failed attempt to remove the country's right-wing army chief. The cabinet bid to sack Gen Rookmangud Katawal prompted the second largest party, the centrist UML, to resign from the ruling coalition. The Himalayan country is emerging from a 10 year civil war which ended with a ceasefire in 2006. Last year the former Maoist rebels won national elections and formed a coalition government. But the peace process is now stuck on the issue that sparked the latest crisis – the integration of former Maoist fighters into the traditionally conservative national army....

In the same video, aired by Nepal's gleeful public television stations on Tuesday night, he was also shown as making scathing remarks about "reactionary" India and the US, saying that if they scented the constituent assembly election would lead to a Maoist victory, they would never allow...

    Cheonan the Introduction to Kim's Second Act By Sohn Kwang Joo, Chief Editor [2010-06-03] What does it all mean? Why was South Korea attacked by North Korea? Some say that the Cheonan incident was retaliation for the Daecheong naval battle of November last year, while others say it was related to the succession. But the underlying reason is different. South Korea and the international community have not yet figured out recent changes to Kim Jong Il’s survival tactics. That is, there have been changes to Kim Jong Il’s international and domestic strategy for survival with which his foes have yet...

    The NY Times covers the thirtieth anniversary of Egypt-Israel peace treaty with an article which goes on and on in saying that Egyptians feel they didn't get anything out of the treaty because they still live under a dictatorship. No mention of billions in U.S. aid as a result. That is truly amazing. The treaty brought Egypt more than $60 billion but that isn't worth mentioning. No mention of how Egypt has not lived up to the normalization aspects--discouraging tourism and trade, for example; or continuing to demonize Israel. No mention of how Egypt didn't contribute very much to the...

    N.K. peace treaty could backfire: experts   Declaring an end to the Korean War was among the notable incentives North Korea was offered for giving up its nuclear program, but experts say the notion may not be all good news for South Korea. Ending the Korean War would mean that the United States would officially cease to be an enemy state for North Korea. The two countries are still technically at war since the 1950-1953 Korean War ended in an armistice and not a formal peace treaty. "There are pros and cons involved. On the one hand, peaceful ties between the...

    It's All About Character, Stupid! Written by the White Knight Wednesday, October 20, 2004 It is disingenuous for the media to characterize Kerry simply as an “Antiwar Protestor.” What Kerry did went far beyond protesting against the war -- Kerry supported the goals of the North Vietnamese. And, they honor him in their museums for his support to this day. George Mc Govern was a patriotic American against the war – but McGovern didn’t go to Paris 3 times and meet privately with high-ranking North Vietnamese leaders like Madame Binh. McGovern did not join Vietnam Veterans Against the War, a...

    Around 1,000 hard-line Jordanians took to the streets Monday, burning the Israeli flag and demanding that their government abolish a peace treaty signed with Israel in 1994. The protesters, affiliated with leftist and Muslim fundamentalist groups and including women and children, were also critical of U.S. President George W. Bush and called for an end to the American occupation of Iraq. "Bush, listen well, the Arab people will not bow for you," chanted the protesters as they marched one kilometer (0.6 miles) to parliament's domed premises to present their demands to legislators. "We call on the government to end all...

    LONDON [MENL] -- The Palestinian Islamic Jihad has sought to maintain a presence in Egypt. Western intelligence sources said Jihad has established a network in Cairo as well as the Sinai Peninsula. They said the Jihad presence is meant to smuggle both insurgents and weapons into the Gaza Strip. The Jihad presence in Egypt was detected in early 2003, the sources said. They said Jihad recruited Egyptians to help facilitate the smuggling of weapons and explosives from the Egyptian-controlled part of Rafah to that controlled by the Palestinian Authority. The arms flow, the sources said, has been financed by Iran...

The king was predicted to declare a date for parliamentary elections, already postponed twice since legislature was dissolved in June 2001. Abdullah said the polls would be held "next spring."
