Morocco Adopts New Antiterrorism Strategy

Rabat – Morocco has adopted a new terrorist strategy to deal with potential terrorist or extremist threats within the country.The new strategy, implemented by the Ministry of Interior on February 28th, centers on preventative measures such as the monitoring of lone wolves who are not necessarily affiliated with terrorist groups and increasing the capacity of local authorities and enforcement officers to handle extremists in their localities.According to media reports, local enforcement officers were trained on methods and techniques of gathering intelligence. They received intense marathon meetings and training courses, supervised by Bachas, heads of districts and Caids, in coordination with officials of the National Security apparatus (DGSN) and the Royal Gendarmerie. The meetings and workshops were designed to arouse awareness among local enforcement officers who are well aware of the situation in their regions, including the moqadems and chioukhs, and urging them to increase surveillance around the new residents in their neighborhoods and villages, and gather as much information about them.Once collected, the information will be shared during weekly meetings planned across all prefectures and provinces, reported Al Massae newspaper.The information will be then examined by members of a common cell that will consist of representatives of the national security apparatus, which will be called upon to inspect and surround the extremists, the Arabic-speaking daily added.According to the same source, the objective of the new anti-terrorism strategy is to accelerate the suspects’ recognition process, especially as extremists are likely to act alone and be guided from abroad by transcontinental groups via social networks. read more

UN human rights expert welcomes British law to stop predatory financial funds

A United Nations human rights expert on foreign debt today welcomed a landmark debt relief law in the United Kingdom which limits the ability of so-called “vulture funds” to sue the world’s poorest countries in British courts for repayment of debts, saying they could have ramifications for a recent court verdict involving Liberia.“This law marks the first occasion on which a country has banned profiteering by vulture funds,” said Cephas Lumina, in his role as the UN Independent Expert on the effects of foreign debt and other related international financial obligations of States on the full enjoyment of all human rights, particularly economic, social and cultural rights.“I commend the UK for taking a critical step to halt the profiteering of vulture funds at the expense of both the citizens of distressed debtor countries and the taxpayers of countries that have supported international debt relief efforts,” Dr. Lumina added in a statement released by his office in Geneva.Vulture funds buy up either all or a portion of debt of a weakened country. The funds often target governments that have received international debt relief, and then sue to recovery the full amount of the debt, diverting precious financial resources saved from debt cancellation.“From a human rights perspective, the settlement of excessive vulture fund claims by poor countries with unsustainable debt levels has a direct negative effect on the capacity of governments of these countries to fulfil their human rights obligations,” said Dr. Lumina, noting that “unconscionable profiteering” steals funds which could be better spent on health, water and sanitation, food, housing and education.One of the first impacts of the British law could be to block a November 2009 ruling by London’s High Court awarding $20 million to two vulture funds that bought Liberia’s debt at a fraction of the sum.The case dates back to 1978. Liberia, which is recovering from a 14-year civil war, has said that it does not have the funds to pay back the debt.At the time of the case, Liberia was taking part in the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries Initiative (HIPC) process, an internationally agreed debt relief measure designed to free up funds for poor countries to invest development issues.The World Bank reported in 2008 that 54 lawsuits had been instituted by commercial creditors against 12 HIPCs over the past decade.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called for greater investment reform and international cooperation to ensure that vulnerable countries are not burdened by “onerous conditions or burdensome external debt.”Dr. Lumina, who serves in an unpaid capacity, reports to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva. 20 April 2010A United Nations human rights expert on foreign debt today welcomed a landmark debt relief law in the United Kingdom which limits the ability of so-called “vulture funds” to sue the world’s poorest countries in British courts for repayment of debts, saying they could have ramifications for a recent court verdict involving Liberia. read more

UN Assembly declares support for new African initiative for continents development

Following a daylong high-level meeting, which saw the participation of 10 African heads of State and Government and senior officials from dozens of other countries, the Assembly adopted a resolution hailing the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) as an African Union-led, -owned and -managed initiative.”We welcome the commitment of African countries to take effective and concrete measures, [among others], through the establishment of various institutional mechanisms and the development of strategies, for the implementation of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development,” the resolution said. “This commitment reflects the recognition that the primary responsibility for the implementation of the New Partnership rests with the African Governments and peoples.”The resolution also affirmed that international support for the implementation of NEPAD is essential, acknowledging the support expressed or provided so far and urging the UN and the international community, particularly donor countries, to help with putting the partnership into practice.In a statement at the outset of the debate, UN General Assembly President Jan Kavan said that with the NEPAD initiative, a new approach was set in motion. For the first time, development needs and objectives were identified and defined by African countries themselves.”The NEPAD initiative, incorporating a complex matrix of key social, economic and political priorities, is a collective pledge by the leaders of Africa,” he said, “based on a common vision and a firm and shared belief that they have a duty to address the development challenges facing their individual countries and the continent as a whole.” read more

Annan hails push for democratization rule of law by Southeast Asian nations

“Democracy is alive and well in many of your countries – as we have seen this year through the elections in a number of countries, including Malaysia and Indonesia,” he said in remarks to a luncheon for Foreign Ministers from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).”In all the challenges you face – from resolving conflict to fighting corruption and promoting development – you will be best placed to meet them through governments that are accountable to the people and respect their will,” he added.He also asked the officials for their support in adapting the UN to meet the challenges of the new century, referring to the blue-ribbon panel he appointed to review new challenges, threats and change. Its recommendations, he said, “will only be as good as the use we make of them.”Mr. Annan also reminded the foreign envoys of the need to follow through on previous commitments, including to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a set of time-bound targets for tackling a range of global ills.”I encourage ASEAN to redouble its efforts to promote cooperation and pursue strategies to achieve the Goals in the region,” he said, pledging the UN’s support in this task. read more

International scholars to visit Brock for unique conference

Brock University is hosting a two-day conference this weekend on Baluchi culture and identity.Brock University will play host this weekend to a unique conference about a little-known cultural group from the Middle East.Called Baluchi Identity and Culture, the two-day workshop features more than a dozen speakers from the United Nations Educational, Scientific Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and Canadian and international scholars sharing their insights into the Baluchi people and their way of life.“Not many workshops have been held because there are not many experts,” said Behnaz Mirzai, associate professor of history and conference organizer. “(The participants) are very excited because it’s very unique. It was a struggle to find scholars.”There are about 15 million Baluchi, most of whom live in a region called Sistan and Baluchistan, which straddles Pakistan and Iran.Though there are Baluchis scattered throughout Afganistan, Oman, Africa and United Arab Emirates, Mirzai said there are few scholars studying them because of various issues, including travel in Baluchistan. Mirzai has published several papers on the Baluchis since she began studying slavery in the African diaspora in 1998.She released a documentary about Baluchistan in 2008 called Afro-Iranian Lives and recently finished a second film, for which she received a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council grant to produce. It’s called The African-Baluchi Trance Dance and will debut at the conference this weekend.Associate professor of history Behnaz Mirzai (right) with three Baluchi girls in Baluchistan.Mirzai is also collaborating with UNESCO on the creation of a virtual network of scholars studying slavery in the Middle East.She described the Baluchis as underpresented. For that reason, Mirzai said she felt compelled to organize an academic event in their honour.“That connection, that emotional support I had with the people I worked with, I thought it was important to visualize (in a documentary) but also to have a conference on these people” Mirzai said. “For me, it was a responsibility to represent these people.”Baluchi Culture and Identity runs Saturday and Sunday in Pond Inlet.

Ohio State leads Big Ten with total of 74 Distinguished Scholars

Lantern file photoOhio State student-athletes are showing their brain power in the Big Ten.A conference-high total of 74 Buckeyes from 28 sports were named to the 2013 Big Ten Distinguished Scholars list, as released by the Big Ten.To be named to the list, those letter winners in at least their second year at their respective school must post a minimum grade-point average of 3.7 or higher in the previous academic year.There were a total of nine Buckeyes who earned a 4.0 GPA last year including senior Derek Blevins (track and field), senior Aaron Craft (men’s basketball), then-senior Adam Homan (football), redshirt sophomore Randy Languis (wrestling), redshirt junior Michael Newburger (gymnastics), senior Melissa Rennie (softball), redshirt senior Max Stearns (fencing), sophomore Gavin Trebilcock (swimming and diving) and junior Tim Wetzel (baseball).Craft is one of two conference basketball players to be named distinguished scholar for the year. He also was named the 2013 Academic All-America of the Year in the sport. Homan is one of three Big Ten football players to post a 4.0 GPA.OSU’s women’s swimming and diving program held the most members of any squad with eight, and were followed by field hockey, men’s volleyball and men’s swimming and diving, who all had five. read more

Sony un partenariat avec Olympus

first_imgSony : un partenariat avec Olympus ?En pleine tourmente suite à la découverte d’une fraude comptable qui aurait duré de nombreuses années, le fabricant d’appareils photo Olympus pourrait prochainement signer un partenariat avec Sony. Des négociations très avancées seraient en cours, et l’annonce d’une alliance pourrait être très rapidement annoncée. Peinant à se relever du scandale engendré par la découverte d’une vaste fraude comptable qui aurait duré vingt ans, la firme Olympius pourrait trouver en Sony un allié de taille. Si l’on en croit en effet les informations du journal financier japonais Diamond, Olympus et Sony pourraient annoncer dans les jours à venir la formation d’un partenariat.Avec cette alliance, dont dont on ignore tous les détails, Sony accroîtra sa participation dans la société spécialiste de l’optique, dont il détient pour l’heure 0,03%. Diamond affirme avoir obtenu cette information d’un responsable de Sony, qui aurait affirmé que le directeur général de firme japonaise, Howard Stringer, a donné son feu vert à ce partenariat.Olympus aurait consulté plusieurs sociétés avant de porter son choix sur Sony, qui est visiblement apparu comme le meilleur partenaire susceptible de l’aider à se relever du scandale qui a grandement fragilisé la société. Reste plusieurs étapes à franchir avant de concrétiser le partenariat, et notamment celle de l’obtention de l’aval des actionnaires, quoi se réuniront lors d’une assemblée extraordinaire prévue en avril prochain.Mais pour l’heure, cette alliance doit être évoquée au conditionnel, ni Olympus ni Sony n’ayant accepté de commenter l’information.Le 24 janvier 2012 à 11:15 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

New York makes its pitch again for Amazons HQ2

first_img Politics Share your voice An an anti-Amazon HQ2 rally outside New York City Hall. Ben Fox Rubin/CNET Some powerful New Yorkers are trying to get Amazon to bring back HQ2.The New York Times reported Thursday that an open letter will be published in the Times on Friday that asks Amazon to reconsider its decision to walk away from its plan to build a 25,000-employee campus in Long Island City, Queens. The company pulled the plug on the project, dubbed HQ2, following vocal and persistent opposition to the plan after it was announced three months ago.The letter was signed by the CEOs of Mastercard, Warby Parker, Goldman Sachs, Tishman Speyer and Jetblue, among others. The presidents of the Building & Construction Trades Council of Greater New York and state AFL-CIO, which were expecting thousands of construction jobs to come from the project, also signed, as did US Reps. Hakeem Jeffries and Carolyn Maloney.”We know the public debate that followed the announcement of the Long Island City project was rough and not very welcoming,” the letter stated. “Opinions are strong in New York — sometimes strident. We consider it part of the New York charm! But when we commit to a project as important as this, we figure out how to get it done in a way that works for everyone.”New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has also had several conversations with Amazon, including CEO Jeff Bezos, about bringing back the project, the Times said.The letter and Cuomo’s behind-the-scenes efforts are part of the latest fallout since Amazon abandoned HQ2 in New York. The opposition has celebrated the exit as a victory for grassroots campaigns and a stand against lavish government incentives for new development plans. Amazon was slated to get about $3 billion in tax breaks for building the project. Supporters, who weren’t as vocal during the run-up to Amazon leaving, expressed shock and consternation about Amazon’s decision and worried that New York would appear unfriendly to new businesses.While the business community was broadly seen as in favor of the project, the letter shows how both the camps supporting and opposing HQ2 included unions and Democratic US congress members. Unlike Jeffries and Maloney, US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke against the HQ2 plan. Amazon declined to comment for this story, but the Times said Thursday that “Amazon executives gave no sense that it would reconsider.”The company is moving forward with the other half of the HQ2 project, which will be located in Arlington, Virginia. The company also faces public opposition to that project, too, though it appears to be smaller. Post a comment Amazon 0 Tagslast_img read more

New AM Campus To Welcome Students Not Admitted Into AM

New AM Campus To Welcome Students Not Admitted Into AM

first_img Share Todd WisemanTexas A&M UniversityThe Texas A&M University System on Monday announced plans to spend $150 million renovating an old satellite campus a few miles from its flagship in College Station to include new buildings, research facilities and, eventually, space to teach as many as 10,000 new students. But there’s a twist: Those new students would be people who were “not admitted” into A&M. It’s not immediately clear how that would work. A press release announcing the project explained it like this: “Students could start their college careers at the center or transfer from community colleges to complete their college degrees. They could be accepted later at Texas A&M University or choose a degree program from another Texas A&M System university. Faculty members from other System schools would either travel to the new campus or teach courses online.”A system spokesman said details are still being conceived, but the students would likely enroll in another university — like one of the 10 others in the A&M System — and take their courses near the flagship. These days, many students from the Bryan-College Station area don’t get into A&M and are forced to leave. This could keep them local, the system said.But, officials said, those details are still a work in progress. The first phase of construction and renovation will focus on research facilities and possible partnerships with private companies. The overhaul of the Riverside Campus, which is just outside the city of Bryan, will cost about $150 million, the system said.  It will be renamed the RELLIS Campus, which stands for the “Aggie core values” of respect, excellence, leadership, loyalty, integrity and selfless service. There are currently 32 old buildings on the satellite campus — it’s mostly used now for research handled by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute. Those buildings will be torn down, the university system said. “This will keep thousands of fine students in the Brazos Valley that might have left for other universities,” A&M System Chancellor John Sharp said. The new buildings will include facilities for research on infrastructure, transportation and robotics. Officials said the site will try to attract private-sector research on subjects like smart power grids, driverless cars and advanced manufacturing, although no private partnerships were included in the announcement Monday.Construction on the first building is scheduled for September. No timeframe was given for the full build-up or when students might begin studying there.In announcing the project, Sharp referenced the state’s new higher education plan, 60×30, which aims to increase the number of young Texans who hold a postsecondary degree or certificate to 60 percent of the population by 2030. “This will be a magnet for technology companies locating their research facilities to the Brazos Valley and for thousands of additional students to study here, contributing to the local economy,” Sharp said. “It’s a great one-two punch for economic development.”Disclosure: Texas A&M University and the Texas A&M University System have been financial supporters of The Texas Tribune.

Recount in Kentucky House Races Ends in Tie

Recount in Kentucky House Races Ends in Tie

first_imgBy ADAM BEAM, Associated PressOWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) — A recount in a Kentucky state House race originally won by a Democrat by a single vote has ended in a tie after the local board of elections decided to open and count five absentee ballots that had previously been rejected. It’s unclear what comes next.Democrat Jim Glenn defeated former Republican state Rep. DJ Johnson on Election Day by a one-vote margin. Kentucky does not have automatic recounts, and the Kentucky State Board of Elections certified Glenn as the winner. He was sworn in on Jan. 5 and has an office and been assigned to committees.In this Jan. 8, 2019 file photo, incoming state Rep. Jim Glenn, D-Owensboro, is sworn in during a ceremony at the Kentucky House of Representatives in Frankfort, Ky. Election officials in Kentucky are reviewing ballots cast in a Kentucky House race where Glenn was elected by just one vote. (AP Photo/Timothy D. Easley, File)But the Republican-controlled state legislature ordered a recount at Johnson’s request, relying on a state law that allows candidates in legislative races to contest election results.Saturday, the Daviess County Clerk’s Office recounted more than 12,000 ballots by hand. Glenn emerged from that process ahead by three votes. But after a personal appeal from Johnson, the Daviess County Board of Elections — which consists of two Republicans and two Democrats — voted to give Johnson one of those votes back, putting him down by two.The board then reviewed 17 absentee ballots that they had unanimously rejected on Election Day. This time, the board decided five of those ballots were legal, and opened them. Johnson received three of them, Glenn received one and one ballot was blank. That made the final results a tie, with each candidate receiving 6,323 votes.The next step is for the Daviess County Clerk’s Office to send a report to the Election Contest Board, a legislative panel of six Republicans and three Democrats which must decide what to do next and eventually give a report to the House of Representatives, which has the ultimate say in the matter. A state law indicates the board must choose the winner by drawing lots.But Anna Whites, Glenn’s attorney, noted Glenn has already been sworn in and seated as a state legislator, and the only way he can be removed is impeachment. She said Glenn would file a lawsuit over any attempt to remove him from office.Glenn did not attend Saturday’s recount. Reached by phone, he indicated he did not accept the results as legitimate.“I won. I’ll say it again,” he said. “Normally, you don’t count invalid ballots.”Johnson, who attended the recount with his lawyers, said the results show the recount was worth doing.“Regardless of the outcome, I’ve always wanted to make sure the votes that should be counted have been counted. And that’s what we did today,” Johnson said.The recount process was long and complicated. The Daviess County Board of Elections had to rule on several ballots, including one where the voter partially filled in a bubble for a straight Republican Party ticket, but then crossed it out. Earlier in the day, the board voted to discard that ballot. But after an appeal from Johnson, they gave it back to him.Most of the district’s 12 absentee ballots that had been rejected on Election Day were either missing a signature or were not mailed in the proper envelope as required by law.But the board voted to accept five of the ballots as legal. One ballot was rejected because the signatures did not match. But the board voted to accept the ballot after noting the voter lived in a nursing home.“That’s the same person. They were just having a bad day that day,” said Daviess County Clerk Leslie McCarty, a Republican and member of the Board of Elections.Another ballot was initially rejected because the voter did not sign the outer envelope. The board voted to accept that ballot after discovering a signature on the backside of the envelope by the seal.“All you can do is the right thing, regardless of who it helps or hurts,” said Daviess County Sheriff Keith Cain, a Democrat and member of the Board of Elections.The recount cost about $10,200, but Johnson, the Republican candidate, has agreed to pay for it regardless of the outcome.Election recounts are rare, and it’s even rarer for a recount to change the outcome of an election. But of the at least 80 recounts nationwide following the 2018 elections, a total of 382 votes changed, according to research by Johnson’s legal team. That’s an average of 4.8 votes per race.Of those 80 recounts, five were decided by one-vote margins, and two of those recounts resulted in ties. In Fairmont, West Virginia, officials chose the winner of a city council seat by flipping buttons in a coffee can.last_img read more

A new study finds that roughly half of all patients who reported having severe distress, which the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) describes as “a mix of anxiety and depressive symptoms,” subsequently missed one or more radiation therapy appointments and/or were admitted to the hospital during their treatment, compared with fewer than 20 percent of patients who reported lower levels of distress. The study was presented at the 59th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), which runs Sept. 24-27 in San Diego.The emotional side effects of cancer, compared with physical side effects, often are more difficult to diagnose and manage. The NCCN estimates that significant distress afflicts roughly a third of cancer patients, leading to further symptoms — such as loss of appetite, difficulty concentrating and sleeplessness — that undermine patients’ ability to fight their diseases.“Focusing on the ‘whole patient’ allows oncologists to deliver the best possible treatment. We know that having cancer is stressful, which means that we have a responsibility to consider a patient’s mental well- being when planning a course of action with them,” said Justin Anderson, lead author of the study and a medical student at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine in Richmond, Virginia.“While distress does not directly impact a patient’s disease, it impacts how she or he copes with treatment, such as the ability to follow a doctor’s recommendations and adhere to a treatment plan. Findings from this study also link higher levels of distress to outcomes specific to radiation oncology, including missed radiation therapy appointments and hospital admission during a course of radiation.”Study findings are based on 54 patients who received external beam radiation therapy with curative intent in the authors’ radiation oncology department during a one-year period between 2015 and 2016. The average patient age was 59 (range 32-85), and 58 percent of the patients were male.Researchers evaluated patients’ levels of distress with the NCCN Distress Thermometer, a brief instrument that asks patients to rate “how much distress [they] have been experiencing in the past week including today,” on a scale from 0 (No distress) to 10 (Extreme distress), similar to common pain scales. Distress scores were grouped into four categories: severe (scores of 7-10), moderate (4-6), low (1-3) and none (0). Fifteen percent of the patients in this study reported severe distress, 29 percent reported moderate stress, 29 percent reported low distress and 25 percent reported no distress.Patients with higher distress scores were more likely to miss appointments during their course of radiation therapy. More than half (57 percent) of the patients with severe distress scores missed one or more appointments, compared to 18 percent of patients with moderate, low or no distress (p < 0.01).Distressed patients also were more likely to be admitted to the hospital during treatment. Half of the patients with severe distress scores were admitted during treatment, compared with 11 percent of patients with moderate, low or no distress (p < 0.01).Researchers also examined the influence of clinical and demographic factors on levels of patient distress. Neither weight loss during treatment nor duration of time between initial consultation and start of treatment correlated significantly with distress scores. The stage of a patient’s cancer, however, was positively associated with distress, such that each increase in stage predicted an average increase of 0.8 points on a patient’s distress score (p < 0.05).The study demonstrates that the NCCN Distress Thermometer or similar instruments can be useful prognostic tools for radiation oncologists to determine which patients may need additional support during treatment, explained Anderson.“Our field has made great advancements in treatments for patients with cancer, but psychosocial factors influence a patient’s ability to receive the appropriate treatment without delay or interruption. Our study demonstrates an association between distress and radiation therapy-specific outcomes, adding to the growing body of evidence emphasizing a need for an interdisciplinary approach to cancer care,” said Anderson.“These findings underscore the importance of devising treatment plans that address mental well-being and are unique to each patient’s individual needs. For example, if a patient is experiencing severe distress —  and therefore is at higher risk of missing appointments or being admitted to the hospital — we can offer transportation or housing support.”For more information: www.astro.orgRelated ContentClinical Trials and Cutting-Edge Radiation Oncology Research to Be Featured at ASTRO 2017 FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 07, 2019 Qfix kVue One Proton Couch Top Validated by Mevion Medical Systems Qfix and Mevion Medical Systems announced that a special version of the kVue One Proton couch top is now both validated... read morelast_img read more

Survey Saudis consider Iran their top enemy not Israel

first_img 5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center ___Online: www.herzliyaconference.org/eng/Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Although Israel and Saudi Arabia have no official contact they have grown closer in recent years, mostly due to their common concern over Iran. A quarter of the poll’s respondents said Israel and Saudi Arabia should join forces to fight Iran together.Saudi Arabia was the driving force behind the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative, offering Israel a comprehensive peace with dozens of Arab and Muslim countries in exchange for a withdrawal from all territories captured in the 1967 Mideast war and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state. Netanyahu has said the initiative might be a starting point for discussions but that it is unacceptable as a take-it-or-leave-it offer.Mintz said he hoped the Israeli government would seize on the new information to adjust its traditional policies.“We assume that we know what people in Iran, Gaza and Saudi Arabia think, but guessing and actual empirical evidence is two different things. For example, nobody that I talked to thought that Saudis would say by a margin of 3-to-1 that Iran scared them more than Israel, nobody predicted that,” he said.“This is really a Sunni-Shiite divide and it has nothing to do with Israel and their focus has shifted. There is a commonality of interests between Saudi Arabia and Israel right now that the Israeli government should take advantage of and capitalize because it is unique in the history of the two states,” he said. HERZLIYA, Israel (AP) — An Israeli college has quietly conducted an opinion poll in Saudi Arabia, concluding that the Saudi public is far more concerned about the threats of Iran and the Islamic State group than Israel, and that the vast majority of Saudis support a decade-old peace offer to the Jewish state.The survey conducted by the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya provides Israelis with a rare glimpse inside Saudi Arabia and may change Israeli perceptions about the desert kingdom. The two countries are longtime foes with no diplomatic relations. Top Stories Comments   Share   Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Sponsored Stories Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement “What we think here in Israel about the Saudis is not exactly what they are,” said Alex Mintz, who heads the IDC’s Institute for Policy and Strategy and oversaw the survey. “There is a great identity of interests and threats and agendas … some would even like to join forces with Israel.”The questioners told respondents that they worked for the IDC, though they did not say they or the school were Israeli. Mintz said few people questioned the source of the survey, and those who did raise questions did not make the connection to Israel. He said there were no unpleasant exchanges.The institute, which last year carried out similar surveys of Iranians and Gazans, said it relied on information gathered from the Saudi Arabian directory and bureau of statistics to proportionally sample 13 regions of the country based on their populations. It said Arabic-speaking Israelis called a mixture of mobile phones and landlines and encountered a 22 percent response rate.Mintz said the full results of the poll would be revealed next week at the IDC’s 15th annual “Herzliya Conference,” a gathering of Israel’s military and political elite, but offered The Associated Press the data in advance. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies The poll found that 53 percent of Saudis named Iran as their main adversary, while 22 percent said it is the Islamic State group and only 18 percent said Israel. The poll, conducted in conjunction with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, surveyed 506 Saudis over the phone and had a margin of error of 5 percentage points. It was carried out over the past two weeks, starting in late May.The poll also showed that a majority of Saudis think their country should seek nuclear weapons if Iran acquires an atomic bomb. A whopping 85 percent also support the Saudi-led Arab Peace Initiative, which calls for peace with Israel in return for a full Israeli withdrawal to its pre-1967 borders.The results indicate significant common ground between Saudi Arabia and Israel, whose prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has been outspoken in his criticism of an emerging nuclear deal between Iran and global powers. Netanyahu, who believes Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapon, says the deal will leave much of Iran’s nuclear infrastructure intact. He has also claimed that unnamed Arab countries, presumably Saudi Arabia and other Sunni Gulf countries, share his concerns. Iran denies seeking nuclear weapons, insisting its atomic program is for purely peaceful purposes.
