Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said Tuesday that talks to reestablish diplomatic ties with Egypt were under way and it was hopeful ties would be resumed soon.
"We proved we can create a budding garden out of obstinate ground," Peres said during a ceremony with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak, and Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Benny Gantz.
Anticipating the elimination of the military ban on homosexuality, the Office of the Chief of Navy Chaplains has decided that same-sex couples in the Navy will be able to get married in Navy chapels, and that Navy chaplains will be allowed to perform the ceremonies -- if homosexual marriage is legal in the state where the unions are to be performed.
April was a historic month for wild weather in the United States, and it wasn't just the killer tornado outbreak that set records, according to scientists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration...the U.S. also had the most acres burned by wildfire for April since 2000. Nearly 95 percent of Texas has a drought categorized as severe or worse, exacerbated by the fifth driest April on record for the Lone Star state. U.S. scientists also looked for the fingerprints of global warming and La Nina on last month's deadly tornadoes, but couldn't find evidence to blame those oft-cited weather phenomena.
"Clashes between Muslims and Christians" makes it sound like a scene from "West Side Story" with two sides causing equal amounts of trouble. But there were no Mosques burned in the clashes, only Christian Churches.
Russia's tortured 17-year journey toward accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) seems to be nearing its end. But exactly how the endgame will play out remains fraught with suspense.
In a statement, the EU said that it is banning shipments to Syria of “arms and equipment that could be used for internal repression.”
"Study a policy that allows Cubans living in the country to travel abroad as tourists," read one of the bullet-points on a government document listing 313 reforms approved at a rare Communist Party Congress mid-April, released yesterday. Cuba gave no immediate concrete details of the plan in its release. But if and when it is implemented - it could drop a bomb on US-Cuban relations, frozen and going nowhere fast as Cuba ignores US calls to open its economy and political system.
The Iraq affiliate of Al Qaeda has pledged allegiance to Ayman Al Zawahiri to fill in the vacant position of the network’s top leadership after the killing of Osama Bin Laden, Al Arabiya TV reported on Monday. “I tell our brothers in Al Qaeda led by Ayman Al Zawahiri, go on with God’s blessing and be glad that you have faithful brothers in the Islamic State of Iraq who are marching on the path of right,” said Abu Baker Al Baghdadi, head of the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) in a statement posted on the Internet.
The tense relations between the Gulf States and Iran as well as the political stalemate in Yemen are expected to dominate the agenda when leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council gather in Riyadh on Tuesday for the annual consultative meeting, the UAE-based Gulf News quoted a source as saying. “Gulf leaders will discuss the (financial) support to Bahrain and Oman,” the source who declined to be named told the English-language daily. “The developments in Yemen are also expected to be discussed.”
Armed troops and riot police guarded the streets around St Mena's church and nearby burned-out shops and apartment blocks in the impoverished, crumbling Cairo suburb of Imbaba. Inside, Father Cherubim Awad said a conspiracy was the only possible explanation for the violence that had engulfed relations between Christians and Muslims in recent weeks.
The United States slammed Monday Israel’s decision to withhold Palestinian Authority funds saying "any decision following the Hamas-Fatah agreement is premature.” U.S. State Department deputy spokesman Mark Toner admitted that the Israelis “have their concerns,” but stressed that that the U.S. government's position is that “we believe that we need to wait and see. We believe it's premature to make any decisions.
New data just out from Zillow, the real-estate information company, show house prices are falling at their fastest rate since the Lehman collapse. Average home prices are down 8% from a year ago, 3% over the quarter, and are falling at about 1% every month, according to Zillow.
The scale of just how dry the start of 2011 has been is evident in some fascinating data from one of Europe's latest Earth observation satellites. Smos senses the moisture in the top layers of soil, and it is very clear in these maps that the ground across the UK and much of Europe is now gasping for water. Last month was the warmest April on record in Britain.
Reports from Syria say columns of tanks have moved towards the central city of Hama, which has been the scene of anti-government protests in recent weeks. There have also been arrests in the nearby city of Homs, and in the coastal town of Baniyas, where a crackdown by troops is continuing, activists say. Earlier, the UN said it was concerned it had been unable to get humanitarian aid to the embattled city of Deraa.
UN aid chief Valerie Amos has called for a pause in hostilities in Libya to help ease the humanitarian crisis. Baroness Amos told the UN Security Council that Misrata, the only rebel-held city in western Libya, was in a dire state and short of food and water. Three-quarters of a million people have fled Libya since an uprising began against Col Muammar Gaddafi's rule.
The top US Republican in Congress has warned he will oppose increasing the US government's ability to borrow funds unless the Obama administration agrees to deep spending cuts. Republican House Speaker John Boehner also said the cuts must exceed any boost to the US borrowing limit. The move comes less than a week before the US is set to run up against its $14.3 trillion (£8.7tn) debt limit.
The southern US city of Memphis is coping with flood levels not seen since the 1930s, which have forced people from at least 1,300 homes. The Mississippi River was expected to crest at 48ft (14.6m) late on Monday or early on Tuesday in the Tennessee city. The authorities have evacuated low-lying neighbourhoods, but officials say they are confident flood control systems will prevent further harm.
France has said it will donate €10 million to the Palestinian Authority following a recent Israeli decision to halt tax revenue transfers to the administrative organisation based in Ramallah. The announcement on Monday (9 May) comes shortly after a similar move by the European Union, with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad warning that his government was unable to pay employees.
Iran's top nuclear negotiator replied on Tuesday to a letter by European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton on fresh nuclear talks, saying they should be "just", state television reported. "The letter was handed over in Vienna by Iran's ambassador. In the letter, Saeed Jalili welcomed P5+1's return to talks, underlining the talks should be just and without pressuring the other party," the Arabic-language al Alam channel reported.

TAKE IT SERIOUSLY
EVERYONE at "The Biblical Christian Digital Network" takes News seriously. You should to. Serious enough to realize that ALL NEWS and ALL NEWS SERVICES are biased and opionated. That is a fact; that will not change no matter where you get your news or read it from.
IT IS INHERENTLY OPINIONATED.
This is News for some but there is no such thing as Fair and Balanced or Fact news.
When human beings are involved it means we all see things differently at times. News outside of America admits it is biased; News in America in the last 75 years has tried to "market" the idea of "journalistic integrity" when since before America became a nation it has been the venue of News to express opinion. Often as in media, owned and operated by "Newsservices" for political reason.
It is up to you what you see; what you hear and what you understand.
The Only Facts For a Christian is The Word of God.
You control what you see; Be Carful how you read a story. You control what you hear; Be careful what and who you are listening to. You control what you understand; be mindful of God to direct your understanding.
In all things remember; you control how you act upon them; don't react to them.
