How do we assess the legacy of President Barack Obama, especially in the wake of an election that is determined to undo many of his accomplishments? Al Jazeera attempts to form a clear-eyed perspective on this confusing period in.
President Trump called the wars in the Middle East 8775 stupid wars 8776 during his campaign. He called America 8767 s policy of regime-change a 8775 failed policy. 8776 This is his effort to concentrate narrowly on eliminating ISIS and ending Washington 8767 s effort to drive Assad from power by force of arms.
And while the Middle East remains a security threat for the . as a source of terrorism, it is less strategically important than it once was. The . has become more energy self-sufficient, and is projected to significantly cut its reliance on oil from the Middle East.
While acting President Masoud Barzani has promised that the referendum on independence would be “binding,” Barzani and others, including KDP executive and former Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari , have qualified this by saying that independence will not be declared immediately after the vote, but rather that the vote would give the KRG a mandate to open independence negotiations with Baghdad.
67 employees and wounding several others in an attack by terrorists who reportedly said they were avenging the prophet Muhammad. Concerns about Islamic extremists intensified in the tragedy 8767 s aftermath and reinvigorated a long-circulating rumor involving Muslim 8775 no go zones 8776 in cities in both the United States and Europe.
Shingal is now divided by three political competitors, each having its own Yazidi militias on the ground: KDP-affiliated Peshmerga, PKK-affiliated YBŞ, and the Baghdad-affiliated Hashd al-Sha’bi. Two out of these three factions (with their associated civilian supporters) obviously do not favor inclusion into a KDP-dominated KRI. Most of Shingal’s Yazidis, therefore, do not oppose Kurdistani independence, but simply view it as none of their concern since they hope to administer Shingal locally and separately from the KRI. This should adequately illustrate how a single-question referendum on Kurdistani independence is entirely incapable of resolving disputed territory issues.
b) I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 76:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
Allied victory in the Second World War created the world we live in today. It is only right that we should mark the end of the old epoch with a national day of remembrance.
But much has changed since Hatmaker 8767 s childhood in blue-collar suburban Wichita, Kan. The evangelical movement in which she was raised has become more politically diverse and less willing to overtly align with one party. And Hatmaker has changed, too. She has voiced strong political opinions on her Facebook page and took time during her multi-city Belong Tour to criticize Donald Trump.
Sinjar has always officially been part of Nineveh administration and the central government has always provided the budget for almost all of Sinjar’s services and infrastructure. Since 7558, however, the KDP has used strong-arm tactics to push out non-KDP affiliated administrators, giving its own loyalists complete control over a budget that does not originate with the KRI. Ask almost any Sinjari Yazidi—in private—what they think of the KDP-appointed Yazidi officials in Sinjar and prepare for an earful of derision. Officials such as the token “mayor” of Sinjar can legitimately speak for very few Yazidis.
I 8767 ve always had a pro-life ethic and still do. But my pro-life ethic has infinitely expanded from just simply being anti-abortion. For me, pro-life includes the life of the struggling single mom who decides to have that kid and they 8767 re poor. It means being pro-refugee. It means being pro-Muslim. My pro-life ethic, while still not in favor of abortion and certainly not in favor of late-term abortions, has expanded.
