Canadian PM Trudeau: Syrian refugees not security risk

TrudeauCanadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he has slowed down plans to settle 25,000 Syrian refugees within weeks in order to allay citizens' security concerns after the Paris attacks.

Trudeau had wanted to resettle 25,000 refugees in Canada by Dec. 31. On Tuesday, his Liberal government said Canada would resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees by the end of the year and another 15,000 by the end of February. Health and security screening will take place overseas, rather than once the newcomers arrive in Canada.


Kerry Tells Netanyahu: U.S. Will Not Recognize Settlement Blocs in Return for West Bank Gestures

Kerry and NetanyahuSecretary of State John Kerry, currently on a visit to the region, told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during their meeting on Tuesday that the United States would not agree to recognize construction in the West Bank settlement blocs in exchange for Israeli steps in the West Bank, as Netanyahu had suggested during their meeting in the U.S. two weeks ago.

Deputy State Department Spokesman Mark Toner told reporters during the daily briefing that the American answer to Netanyahu’s demand in this matter was “a big no.” He added that both Republican and Democratic administrations regarded construction in the settlements and Israeli attempts to create facts on the ground as undermining a two-state solution.

Ambulances rushed from the scene and security forces quickly sealed off the area.


In taking economic war to Islamic State, U.S. developing new tools

ISISSince last month, U.S. warplanes have struck Islamic State's oil infrastructure in Syria in a stepped-up campaign of economic warfare that the United States estimates has cut the group's black-market earnings from oil by about a third.

In finding their targets, U.S. military planners have relied in part on an unconventional source of intelligence: access to banking records that provide insight into which refineries and oil pumps are generating cash for the extremist group, current and former officials say.


Russia confirms its jet was shot down near Turkish border

Vladimir PutinTurkey shot down a Russian fighter plane Tuesday — a long-feared crisis in Syria's civil war and apparently the first time a NATO member has downed a Russian plane in a half-century. At least one of the pilots was reported killed.

Russian President Vladimir Putin called Turkey's action a "stab in the back by the terrorists' accomplices" and warned of "significant consequences," and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov cancelled a visit to Turkey which had been planned for Wednesday.


Unsolved murder in West Bank: a case of uneven Israeli justice and its cost

Unsolved murder and Israeli injusticeAt the center of this otherwise idyllic Palestinian village, soot still blackens the entryway of a house where an arson attack this past summer by extremist Israelis took the lives of Saed and Reham Dawabshe and one of their two sons, Ali, an infant.

Months have gone by without any indictments by Israel for the murders, and emotions in Duma continue to smoulder.


President-elect Macri promises to reboot Argentine economy

Macri wins in ArgentinaPresident-elect Mauricio Macri promised on Monday to correct the errors of Argentina's outgoing leftist government but urged patience while he defines his strategy to liberalize the ailing economy.

The conservative Macri, who won a run-off presidential vote on Sunday, inherits a fragile economy: slow growth is driven by unsustainable spending, inflation is soaring and capital controls have backfired to leave foreign reserves at nine-year lows.
