Five years ago today, the government of the Islamic Republic of #Iran placed former senior Iranian officials and 2009 presidential election candidates Mehdi Karroubi and Mir Hossein Mousavi, as well as Mousavi’s wife, women’s rights advocate Zahra Rahnavard, under house arrest without formally charging them with any crimes.

We repeat our appeal for the immediate release of these individuals and of all prisoners who are being held for their religious or political beliefs.

“It is clear that today, while the Cold War is long over, the need for the same qualities that brought people through that, for the courage and resolve in defending liberty and pursuing peace, is just as vital as it was half a century ago.” – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, 52nd Munich Security Conference, February 13, 2016

The Referendum brought on by the Troubles in Europe will no doubt call for the Resignation of Cameron , throwing the Governing Conservative Party into meltdown ,, and there isn't even any decent opposition party in the UK , Right Wing UKIP , or the Weak Labour Party , that has lost all support in Scotland were the National Socialists in Edinburgh rule supreme , who along with England,s Corbyn want Nuclear Disarment ,, 2016 will be an interesting Political year for the US , UK Europe , let alone the insane politics of the middle east .

The government of Israel and the Palestinian Authority decided last year to establish a mutual goal for improved mobile connectivity in the West Bank and Gaza by Palestinian Cellular Operators. They collectively agreed that advanced mobile communications should be available to the people in the West Bank, and eventually Gaza, by providers of their own choosing on networks that are separate and independent from Israeli networks.   

For that to happen, Palestinian operators in the West Bank and Gaza need access to space in the airwaves to send communications. They also need the ability to import equipment and towers for the delivery of signals, and mechanisms by which to ensure that the signals they transmit do not interfere with those delivered by Israeli networks and vice versa.

All of this is doable, but not easy.

I think that it's a great idea to maintain peace between Palestine and Israel and if this is the way to be at peace. God bless Hamas and Israel President. I would like to see no fighting and more cooperation in fair trade, legal immigration to Israel, no religion fights, or territory fights for natural sources. I hope to go out there soon to both Palestine and Israel.

Christian History is just as incredible as much as it was violent centuries ago ,, I love visiting these huge Cathedrals , they're just amazing feats of Architecture and Building , Mons St , Michel in Brittany is a buzz , with a very ancient story of Archangel Michael ordering the then Bishop to build a Cathedral worthy of God on the Sea !

Randy: Thanks. I am aware of the 411. I agree with you on the comment about the climate treaty amount being ,tremendously, steep. We can't do shit about our tax money going for scam projects of the corrupt Government or their dumb arguments about it being used for a good thing like climate issues. Anyway, Government's under Illuminate really hurt. Not mentioning any Government's ha! I just hope that one day Nations become more aware of their own self- awareness and quit being greedy or stupid.
