Menekült jog és migráció

írta: Barki

Tisztelt Elnök Asszony, tisztelt Hölgyeim és Uraim, kedves barátaim ! Nagy szeretettel köszöntöm Önöket, köszönöm a meghívást és köszönöm, hogy ismét Önök között lehetek. Köszönöm, hogy ezzel a fontos témával, a menekült üggyel, és főleg a migrációval foglalkoznak. Köszönet Magyarországnak, mert ez az egyetlen ország Európában, amely nemcsak helyesen látja a problémákat, hanem meri ezeket kimondani és mer tenni is a megoldásért. Végre nyugaton is az átlag emberek egyre többen kezdik észrevenni a nagy veszélyt, ahová Európa feltarthatatlanul sodródik, de a politikusok közül csak azok merik a véleményüket hangosan kimondani, akik már nyugdíjban vannak. Nem régen mondta nekem egy magasabb rangú tisztviselő a Külügyminisztériumban, hogy ha Orbánról beszélnek ezt csak halkan merik tenni. A migráció ügyében is. De más témában is. Mert a politikai korrektség ezt nem engedi meg. Oroszország és Magyarország mellett most Lengyelország is a nagy veszély. A Berliner Zeitung ezt ezen a héten így fejezte ki: “Magyarország és Lengyelország Európa számára nagyobb veszélyt jelent mint az Iszlám Állam.” Ezt azon a napon írták amikor az IA harcosai 77 gyereket meggyilkoltak. És itt vagyunk a mai témában: Kulcsszerepet játszik az Iszlám Állam, amely elől menekülnek az emberek Szíriából és Irakból. Az Iszlám Állam ellenőriz egy területet, amely nagyobb, mint Nagy-Britannia. Amerikai források 30 000 harcosról beszélnek, akik külföldről csatlakoztak az IS Milizhez, de a pontos számot nem tudjuk. Ezek fel vannak szerelve modern amerikai fegyverekkel, új Audi flottával, a bevételük havonta minimum 80.000 dollár, amely főleg az olajkereskedelemből származik, ahogy kiderült Törökországgal. Az emberek százezrei azok elől menekülnek, azok elől, akik nem csak a szíriai kormány ellen harcolnak, hanem brutális terrorral sakkban tartják a területet, akik lemészárolják a keresztényeket és más nem muzlimokat, akik kimondják, hogy Európát is el akarják foglalni és Európában is létre hozni egy kalifátus rendszert. Tényleg azok veszélyesek, akik védik a népüket a gyilkosoktól, akik védik a több száz éves felépített kultúrájukat, a vallást, a hagyományt, a szabadságukat, a méltóságukat és nem azok, akik gyilkolnak, rabolnak, szétrombolnak és tönkretesznek mindent? A Berliner Zeitung csak azt írta, ami a politikában látszik: A Nyugat az Iszlám Államra nem, mint ellenségre tekint, hanem támogatja. Az Iszlám Állam ellen eddig csak látszatharcot vívtak, mert az az ő teremtményük. És az IA szükséges Szaud-Arábiának és Törökországnak is. Most végre Oroszország harcol az IA és a terroristák ellen. Az EU Bizottság foglalkozik minden magyarellenes kezdeményezéssel, de nem tesz semmit sem a 3.000 csempészszervezet ellen, amelyeknek 29.000 tagja van és akik koncentráltan Európába viszik a migránsokat. Hallgatott, amikor Berlinben az EU Bizottság képviselete előtt nagy ünnepségen piros szőnyegen és Juncker kép előtt átadták a nagy érdemrendet szalaggal a sikeres csempészeknek. Oroszországot szankciókkal akarják gyengíteni, de Szaud- Arábiát, ahol a pénteki ima után most 50 férfit egyszerre lefejeztek, vagy Törökországot, amely csak úgy lelő egy orosz repülőgépet és a gazdasági problémáit az ISIS államtól vásárolt olcsó olajjal oldja meg, támogatják. Milyen világban élünk? A háború világában. Kedves barátaim: háború van. Szubverzív háború, burkolt háború, hibrid háború. A migráció áradat ennek a háborúnak az egyik eszköze. Kik a szereplők és mi a háború célja? Amikor 25 évvel ezelőtt győztünk a kommunizmus és a totalitárius diktatúra felett, amikor lebontottuk a vasfüggönyt és a berlini falat, amikor összeomlott a keleti blokk és szétesett a Szovjetunió egész Európa eufóriába esett. Álmodtunk az európai házról, amelyben minden európai népnek az otthona lesz és amelyben mindenki otthon fogja érezni magát. És ma ezt az európai házat másokkal akarják megtölteni, tőlünk idegen népekkel és más, idegen kultúrával. Ki akarják cserélni az európai népeket és kiirtani az európai kultúrát. Ezen a héten a volt Sachsen igazságügyi minisztere Heitmann, aki Merkel politikája miatt tiltakozásul kilépett a CDU- ból azt mondta, hogy soha nem érezte magát ilyen idegennek a saját országában, az NDK- ban sem. Mi történt az utóbbi 25 évben, hogy ilyen vészhelyzetbe jutottunk ? Nem vettük észre, hogy a kommunizmus bukása után egy másik és még veszélyesebb diktatúra alakult ki. A bipoláris világrend után az Egyesült Államok maradt az egyetlen világhatalom. Ők mondták: megnyertük a hidegháborút, mivel az oroszok azt mondták: mi befejeztük a hidegháborút. És ebben a győzelmi mámorban kezdték korlátlanul megerősíteni és kiépíteni a hegemoniális törekvéseiket az egypólusú világhatalom érdekében. Bush elnök már 1991- ben beszélt az új világrendről, amelyben az Egyesült Államok az egyetlen szuperhatalom. Obama elnök az idén az újévi beszédében mondta: Nem az a kérdés, hogy uraljuk a világot, hanem az, hogy hogyan uraljuk a világot. És egy interjúban pár nappal később: Ha egy ország nem azt teszi, amit mi akarunk, kénytelen vagyunk eltörni a kezét. Tehát az amerikaiak nagyon őszinték, a céljukat és a stratégiájukat nem is titkolják el. Ha meg akarjuk érteni a mai politikai helyzetet és az ezzel összefüggő migráns problémát, meg kell érteni az amerikai külpolitikát, amely főleg két alapon nyugszik: Az egyik a Wolfowitz Doktrina, amelyet Wolfowitz már 1992- ben kidolgozott, amely az Egyesült Államok excepcionality-ből – különlegességéből indul ki és amelyet a „National Security Strategy 2002” (Nemzeti Biztonsági Stratégia 2002) tartalmaz. Ez a doktrina azt mondja: Nem szabad hagyni, hogy bármilyen rivális bárhol erősödjön. Minden ellenséges hatalmat abban kell akadályozni, hogy domináljon egy régióban. Ez Oroszországról és az orosz-európai viszonyról szól. És ez lényegében a régi Heartland (szív-ország) elmélet, amelyet az angol geográfus Mackinder írt 1904-ben („The Geographical Pivot of History“), és amelyet a mai napig tanulniuk kell az amerikai tiszteknek: „Aki uralkodik Kelet-Európán, uralkodik a szív-országon. Aki uralkodik a szív-országon, uralkodik a világszigeten (ez Eurázsia). Aki uralkodik Eurázsián, uralkodik az egész világon“. Emiatt akarja az Egyesült Államok visszaszorítani Oroszországot, meg akar akadályozni egy eurázsiai gazdasági együttműködést, amelyet már De Gaulle akart és amelyről most Putyin álmodik; egy szabadkereskedelmet Lisszabontól Vlagyivosztokig. Brzezinski a „The Grand Chessboard“ könyvében is arra építi hitvallását, hogy Ukrajna az eurázsiai sakktáblán fontos szerepet tölt be mint geopolitikai középpont. Oroszországnak szüksége van Ukrajnára. Mert Ukrajna nélkül Oroszország nem világhatalom, hanem csak regionális hatalom – amit Obama mindig is hangsúlyozni szokott. Ugyanúgy Friedmann, a Stratfor politológusa egy élő adásban nem régen mondta, hogy ez már 100 éve az Egyesült Államok célja, megakadályozni egy eurázsiai kontinentális hatalom létrejöttét,mert ez komoly veszélyt jelentene Amerikának. Eurázsiát talán nem lehet meghódítani, de akkor legalább a nemzeteket egymás ellen kellene felheccelni és az egyensúlyból kiütni - mondja Friedmann. És ez az Amerikai külpolitikának a második alapelve: Hogy ne legyenek erős államok, hanem gyenge, összeveszett társadalmak, amelyeken uralkodni lehet, ahhoz kell a káosz megteremtése. Nem ez történik most? Ukrajnában, Szíriában és most egész Európában a migráció problémával? De mindenhol ahova az amerikaiak a lábukat beteszik, Afganisztánban, Afrikában? És itt a kör bezárul és vissza kerülünk a témához: A migránsok kizárólagosan olyan területekről jönnek, ahol az amerikaiak vagy nemzetközi jogellenes háborút vívtak vagy másképpen beavatkoztak. De a menekülteket nem Amerika fogadja be, hanem Európába küldik. A migráns áradat, amelynek csak a kezdetén vagyunk, az Egyesült Államok és néhány nyugati állam politikájának a következménye. Ez sem véletlen, ez is a stratégiához tartozik. Ezt hogy lehet megérteni? Kinek az érdeke a társadalmi és jogi rendszer összeomlása és konfliktusok kirobbantása Európában? A megálmodott világuralomnak az alapja és feltétele a globalizáció. Az összefonódás minden területen: politikában, gazdaságban, kultúrában, oktatásban, társadalmi életben. És mi a globalizációnak a legnagyobb akadálya és ellensége? – A nemzetállam és a sokféleség Európája. Ha figyeljük az amerikai és az Európai Uniós Amerika-függő politikusok nyilatkozatait és tevékenységét, akkor látnunk kell, hogy ők egyhangúan és egyre jobban fellépnek a nemzetállamok ellen és támadják a nemzetállam eszméjét. A nemzetállam, az államok szuverenitásának és a népek ön-rendelkezésének a megsemmisítése a cél. Blair volt az első, aki 1998- ban a szuverén nemzetállam megszüntetését követelte, és ezzel kezdeményezte a NATO doktrina változását, amely veszi magának a jogot, szuverén államok megtámadásához a „responsibility to protect“ (felelősség a védelemhez) ürügyén. Koszovó volt az első eset, számtalan más háborús akciót is folytattak. Az Egyesült Államoknak fontos egy olyan Európa, amely hűséges vazallusként végrehajtja az amerikai érdekeket – és nem kell eltörni a karjukat. Ez csak akkor működik, ha nem egyes államok állnak szemben, hanem csak egy partner, az Európai Unió. Az Unió már szemmel láthatóan a végét járja, túl sok problémával küzd és már nem is működik. Sokan már arról beszélnek, hogy vissza kellene állítani az állam szuverenitását. Tegnap Dánia is az Európai Unió ellen szavazott egy referendumban. Az Európai Unió soha de soha nem is működhet. Egyetlen egy ok miatt nem is működhet: nem működhet, mert nem létezik egy európai nép. Tehát ki kell cserélni a népeket. Teremteni kell egy új keverék népet, amely homogén, nem nacionalista, egységes és irányítható. A migrációval ezt nagyon elegánsan el lehet érni úgy, hogy nem is veszik észre a szándékot – mint Juncker szokta mondani – vagy amikor észreveszik már túl késő. Mert ez a folyamat visszafordíthatatlan. Kedves barátaim, ez a legrafináltabb háború a történelemben. Hadüzenet nélkül, a tolerancia nevében tönkre lehet tenni egy országot. Hogy ez túlzás vagy összeesküvés? Nézzük meg, hogy mit írt a katonai szakértő Barnett, aki a védelmi miniszter Rumsfeld tanácsadója is volt. Barnett 2004-ben és 2005- ben két könyvet írt: “The Pentagons New Map” és “Blueprint of Action” Ebben a két könyvben Barnett felrajzolja a stratégiát a világuralom eléréséhez. Mivel csak a globalizáció garantálhatja a világbékét, Amerikának, mint a globalizáció vezércsillagának cselekednie kell. Ennek a feltétele egy akadálytalan migrációs áradat, amellyel szét kell bomlasztani a népeket és kultúrájukat. A cél – ugyanaz, mint Coudenhove-Kalergi akarta – Európában: egy világos barna faj, egy egységes társadalom nemzetiségi, kulturális vagy vallási különbségek nélkül. Egy összekevert nép, amelynek az IQ 90, tehát gondolkodáshoz túl kevés, de elég a munkához. Barnett azt is írja már 2005-ben, hogyan lehet elérni ezt a célt Európában, és pedig: Egy és fél millió bevándorló szükséges évente a harmadik világból. Most éppen itt tartunk. Az első kontingens már megvan. Ezt a célt el kell érni. Senkinek sem szabad akadályozni az amerikai katonaságot – semmilyen államnak, országnak vagy kormánynak. Ha egy politikus ellenáll, azt el kell tüntetni, de nagyon gyorsan. És ha valaki a globalizációra veszélyes - azt meg kell gyilkolni - írja Barnett. Kevesen ismerik ezeket a könyveket. Kevesen ismerik Greenhill könyvét is “Weapons of Mass Migration” (A tömegmigráció fegyverei). Greenhill kimutatja a tanulmányában, hogy a migráció nem egyszer, hanem már többször szerepelt, mint fegyver. Sajnos ez történik most is. A modern háborút már nem páncélosokkal vívják, hanem mindent lehet használni, mint fegyvert, amely kárt okozhat és megsemmisítheti az ellenfelet. A migrációban az embereket is használják, mint fegyvert. Kedves barátaim! Nem akarom ezekkel a pesszimizmust okozó szavakkal befejezni a beszédemet. Én nem lennék itt, ha nem remélném, hogy ezt a katasztrófát, amely már úton van, nem lehetne kikerülni. Ez mindenesetre Magyarországra és a közép-európai országokra vonatkozik. Itt még látok erőt és bátorságot a manipulációnak ellenállni. A szeretet a nemzethez, a hit a gyökerekhez, a bátorság a történelemhez és az igazságossághoz meg fog menteni bennünket ebben a viharos időben. Ezt mind az úgynevezett Nyugatról nem lehet elmondani. Ott még nem látom az esélyt a regenerációhoz és túléléshez. Nyugaton túl kevesen vannak, akik megőrizték az európai értékeket, ezek csak itt Magyarországon és a volt keleti országokban találhatók. Én tudom, hogy azok az emberek Nyugaton, akik még élnek az értékekkel, nagyon várnak egy impulzust Magyarországról. Sokan jönnek hozzám, és a reménynek adnak kifejezést, hogy Magyarország meg fogja menteni Európát, mint már többször a történelemben. Ez legyen az új magyar kihívás! Köszönöm szépen.

Pótlás 7 6 22-i közléshez

Utóirat 2015-ből:

   Megjelent egy legkurtább írás 1995 januárja végén  - korabeli Magyar Hírlapban? - miszerint Vekerdi antiszemita és cigányellenes. Továbbá hogy egyes - kommunista múltúnak tételezett? - szerzők írta könyveket nem hajlandó terjeszteni Nyugaton. Emlékezetem szerint valami ilyes feljelentés-szerűség, közölt vélekedés volt elég ahhoz - minden kivizsgálás nélkül - a korabeli Magyarországon, hogy őt, tisztes vezetőt állásából napokon belül eltávolítsák. A Nemzetközi Csereszolgálat (NCS) vezetője volt. Közvetlen munkatársai - néhányak kivételével - kiálltunk ugyan mellette, írásbeli beadványban tártuk az intézmény vezetése elé cáfolatunkat - meggyőződéses véleményünket, miszerint a közölt vádak hamisak, koholtak, kérjük rehabilitációját. Ő nyelvészként kiútnak a magyar nemzet mindenkori egységét tekintette. Számos -  a feljelentő újságcikk kiötlője által 'zsidó származású'-ként számon tartatott - kitűnő magyar emberrel is naprakész kapcsolatban volt, munkája természetéből adódóan. Legtermészetesebb, hogy irodájában gyakorta fordult meg Faludy is - mindenek előtt hivatkozhatott ennek tényére -,  egyes külszolgálatos diplomatáink, mások. Ugyanakkor Jóska évtizedeken át volt kutatója a hazai cigányság nyelveinek és terepen folyt hosszas kutatásai eredményeképpen következetesen képviselte azon a téren is oly  tapasztalati következtetéseit, meggyőződését, amely a minden magyar állampolgárt megillető jogok mellett a kötelességek, törvényeink betartatását is célnak tekinttette. Esetenként rámutatott kiütközőnek ítélt megélhetési szeparatista törekvésűekre, nevükön nevezett önjelölt vezetőket; az érintett tömeget viszont kulturálisan nagyon elesettnek tudta, jóllehet terepi gyűjtései, illetve mindennapjaink során számos megismert, közülük való, egyszerű, dolgos ember iránt megbecsülést tanúsított, velük jól szót értett. A tényszerű közléshez még hozzátartozik: Sorost és az általa a kis hazában támogatottak közül egyeseket viszont kifejezetten nem kedvelt, esetenként ennek is hangot adott. Így míg a fényen számos a barátja, addig árnyékban meghúzódó, csapásul szegődött ellenségei is lettek. Jóska tehát közvetlen munkatársai által tanúsítottan egy igaztalanul megvádolt és megszenvedett ember hites életével bír. Jómagam az Országos Széchényi Könyvtárban (OSZK) az osztályvezetőnk mellett szóló beadványt hivatali minőségemben, helyetteseként írtam alá. .Az általam utólag is, folytatólagosan szorgalmazott "erkölcsi rehabilitáció"-jára az OSZK, mint intézmény végül is sort kerített, valamikor a 2000-es évek elején, szinte egyidejűleg viszont az NCS-t, volt osztályát felszámolta. Az ellene kibontakoztatott ellehetetlenítésnek tehát alapjában magyar érdek ellenes irányultsága volt. Vekerdi "kinyírását" követően ugyanis - ő maga nevezte így a vele szembeni eljárást - két év múltán, 1997-ben megjelent új "könyvtári törvény"-ben az OSZK Nemzetközi Csereszolgálata már nem szerepelt többé a legjobb értelemben vett nemzeti, kulturális propagandánkat szolgáló támogatott intézmények között. Tudni kell, hogy korábban mindennémű, kiadványterjesztésre használható forrásunkat fele részben nemzeti könyvtári szintű cserepartnereinkkel fennálló kapcsolatainkra kellett fordítanunk, fele részben viszont határon túli magyar érdekeltségű, könyvtárral rendelkező intézmények könyv-és folyóirat-támogatására fordíthattuk. Azt a két, teljes  köteles példány sort, amit évtizedeken át a mondott célokra használhattunk fel, s amely még a Pozsgay-féle rendeletben, a hetvenes évek végén, nyolcvanas évek elején - kimondatlanul ugyan, de egyéb úton kifejezetten - az NCS ily céljaira volt rendelve, biztosítva, az 1997-es törvényben már a Fodor-, majd Magyar-féle SZDSZ-es korabeli kulturális minisztériumi vezetés az NCS-től megvonta; a törvényben már nem nevesítette, szerepeltette. Létfontosságú eszköztől fosztották meg ezzel a nemzetet, országot, benne létalapjától minket, a szóban forgó, szakosodott működési egységet. Az intézmény maga nem tudta volna  - nem világos, hogy korabeli vezetője  ténylegesen akarta-e  - a fenntartotti költségvetésből kigyöngyözni e célból az elvesztett köteles példányok pótlására az évi több tízmilliós anyagi keretet, s így  2001-re felszámolta a mondott szervezeti egységet. Megjegyzendő, hogy a civilizált s műveltebb északi féltekén, ahová akkor is tartoztunk, csupán Magyarország, utóbb Horvátország volt az az állam, amelyik nemzetközi szerződésben államilag felvállalt kiadványcsere-szolgálat fenntartási kötelezettségét ilyen, visszatetsző módon felmondta. Az sem világos, hogy a korabeli, felszámoló intézményvezető egyáltalán tudott-e arról, hogy a Nemzetközi Csereszolgálat, egy NCS  nem csupán OSZK kötelezettségeit teljesítő szervezeti egység, hanem a magyar állam által nemzetközi szerződésben szavatoltan működtetett nemzetközi kulturális együttműködés rendeltetésű intézmény, amelyet IFLA (nemzetközi könyvtáros szervezet) ajánlások nyomán az egyes országokban - szak-tevékenységük és gazdaságos működésük elősegítésére - az egyes Nemzeti Könyvtárakhoz rendelnek ugyan, de nem csupán nemzeti könyvtári egység jelleggel fejtik ki szaktevékenységüket. A Nemzetközi Csereszolgálat, a magyarországi NCS tehát nem csupán az OSZK-é, hanem Magyarországé, a magyarságé, annak folyamatos fenntartási kötelme pedig a szerződött magyar államot illeti.! Az IFLA-nak van Nemzetközi Kiadványcsere szakosztálya, amely tízévente  megjelenteti ajánlásait külön kötetben. A legutóbbiban, amit láttunk, amelyik az elmúlt évtized közepe tájt jelent meg, már csak az szerepel, hogy az OSZK, magyar nemzeti könyvtár a nemzetközi kiadványcsere szerepet az intézmény Gyarapítási Osztályára átruházta. Azt ki sem közölte a kötet IFLA-központi összeállítójával hivatalból Budapestről, hogy a továbbiakban a tevékenységhez - a korábbiakkal ellentétben - sem köteles példányt, sem rendszeres pénzeszközt sajnos nem rendel leghosszabb évek óta itt, Magyarországban senki. Következőleg: a megszüntetés tényleges célzata a határon túli magyarsággal fenntartott legszélesebb körű kapcsolatrendszer sikeres működésének felszámolása lehetett? Eredménye zömében az lett. Holott ez az osztály volt hivatva arra is, hogy eleget tesz azon törvényi kötelezettségnek, miszerint az OSZK a teljesség igényével begyűjti a hungarikumokat. Mindaddig, míg  e kötelem fennáll, az NCS újjá szervezendő, tényleges működése helyreállítandó szükséglet. Az NCS szerezte be a kiadványcsere útján, nagy hatékonysággal a magyar nemzeti könyvtár számára a határon túli megjelenésű magyar kiadványok 95%-át. Megrendítő, máig ható kihatásai lettek tehát e kulturális síkokon is annak, hogy az egész magyar társadalmat megrázó, megrövidítő, elhíresült Bokros-csomaggal egyidejűleg vélhetően a korabeli kulturális tereken is be kívántak vezetni egyfajta megszorító csomagot annak idején. Ennek megfélemlítési és ellehetetlenítő eszköze egy nagymérvű elbocsátás-sorozat lett volna? Erre mutat, hogy egyidejűleg több, nagyszámú munkatársat foglalkoztató nemzeti intézményünk vezetőjét - például  Keserűt a Szépművészeti Múzeum; Ablonczyt a Nemzeti Színház élén - s a Vekerdi-ügy révén az OSZK vezetését is érte központi támadás egyidejűleg, azt célozva, hogy a vezetőt eltávolítanák, s ha már a nyájat ki sem védi, az szétszalad. A mondottak védekeztek, s védték nemzeti intézményeiket, amint csak tudták. Jóska is védte ugyan magát, pillanatig sem vállalta föl a sarokba szorítottak szerepét; hazai és külföldön élő jeles egyetemi tanáraink, tudósaink sokasága állt ki egyként s egyként rokonszenvét nyilvánítva mellette, üldözés egyik áldozata mellett..Az OSZK meghunyászkodó korabeli vezetése viszont súlyos vezéráldozatot hozott, minisztériumi nyomásra 1995-ben egyik legkitűnőbb korabeli szakemberét áldozta fel, elkötelezettjét a határon túli nemzetrészek értékes támogatásának, aki egyik letéteményese volt a mindenkori magyar nemzeti és  nemzetközi együttműködésnek. 2002-ben aztán, amikor "a magyarországi cigány szubkultúra, valamint a szanszkrit nyelv és irodalom kutatásában, fordításában és közkinccsé tételében végzett egyedülálló munkásságáért" Széchenyi-díjat kapott, Jóska személyesen megkért, hogy a díjjal járt pénzösszeg egyharmad részének kárpátaljai magyar oktatási intézmények friss megjelenésű magyar könyvekkel való ellátására fordítását - szépirodalmi, ifjúsági- és pedagógiai szakkönyvek  beszerzését és kijuttatását - vállalnám el. Szívesen megtettem. Mert ilyen ember volt. Sajnos kiemelkedő gondoskodás a felfüggesztett tevékenységű NCS vonatkozásában viszont utóbb nem történt, országosan ki sem vette át legátfogóbb teendőink célszerű intézését, személy szerint hiában szorgalmaztam annak szükségét is meggyőződéssel, folyamatosan...
Dr. Vekerdi József emlékét megőrizzük!

On 14th November, Monday, morning, or on sunset, the full Moon was the biggest and brightest in almost 70 years.
Looks much one full Moon like any other? Because the Moon's orbit is not a circle, it's an ellipse, one side of the Moon's orbit, called perigee, is 50,000 km closer to Earth than the other side, apogee. The last time we had such a close full Moon was in 26 January 1948. It happens again in 25 November, 2034.
Monday, about 2 hours away from perigee,
the "supermoon" becomes full; 14% bigger and 30% brighter than lesser moons seen in the past.

was the best time to look in North America;
after sunset on the same day
was the best time in Europe.

Possibly about some quakes, volcano activity

I.

by Danube

 

Prediction from 08 November:
2016/11/11-12:
EARTH
a stream of solar wind flowing from a southern coronal hole is expected to reach our planet, possibly sparking geomagnetic storms and high-latitude auroras when it arrives.

 

2016/11/10

Prediction from 09 November:
EARTH
active to moderate storm conditions are possible due to the expected arrival of the negative coronal hole high speed stream.
SUN
Solar flare activity was very low, with isolated background flare activity. No C flares or Earth-directed CMEs were observed on the visible disc, where only one active region existed and showed growth.  
SPACE
Through the day total field varied between 10 and 14 nT.
Until  06:00 UT
the Bz component of the IMF was oriented northward,
then
rotated southward, reaching a maximum of -12 nT.
EARTH:
12:24 UT: magnitude 5.8 quake occured in Western Indian-Antarctic ridge region (depth: 10 km),
at a distance of 3256 km south-west from Canberra, Australia; 4685 km south-west from Wellington, New Zealand; 4718 km south from Dili, Timor-Leste.
SPACE
Between 15 UT - 18 UT the geomagnetic field was with an isolated active period,
in the rest of the day was quiet to unsettled.
At 15:10 UT - with a peak flux of 1,032 pfu - the greater than 2 MeV electron flux briefly reached high levels,
after
returned to normal to moderate levels.
After 16:00 UT the Bz component was variable.
Phi angle was positive (away);
at 16:30 UT
a negative orientation was observed.
After 16:30 UT in the rest of the day
solar wind speed has shown a gradual rise from about 335 km/s to 440/495 km/s.
EARTH
17:35 UT: magnitude 5.6 quake occured (
depth: 546 km)  at a distance of 57 km east-northeast from Ndoi Island, Fiji; 322 km west-northwest from Haveluloto, Tonga. See also: seismotectonics of the Eastern margin of the Australia Plate.

2016/11/09

SUN

Solar activity was very low. The only one, new region, numbered 2607, was inactive.
From 01:36 UT onwards a southern coronal hole has opened - a filament eruption occurred - and a CME was observed, directed to the north-northeast; a stream of solar wind is spewing toward Earth.
Prediction:
EARTH
On November 10 and 11 active to moderate storm conditions are possible due to the expected arrival of the negative coronal hole high speed stream.
SPACE
hours later than expected was arriving a weak CME and solar wind brushed past Earth's magnetic field.
The phi angle was variable.
At 05:43 UT the total IMF strength was at 2 to 4 nT, and - probably due to the arrival of the November 5 CME - a small shock was observed; the solar wind speed increased from 300 km/s to 330 km/s,
while the magnitude of the Interplanetary Magnetic Field jumped from about 4nT to 7nT,
until about 05:43 UT, when increased to 7 to 9 nT as the anticipated transient may have arrived,
and the proton density jumped from about 12 to 25 particles per cc.
EARTH
As Earth passed through the CME's magnetized wake, auroras were possible from southernmost Australian regions or appeared in northern latitudes.
SPACE
to 07:00 UT the Bz component of the IMF has ranged between +7 / -7nT; it was primarily northward
until after 07:00 UT when it turned prolonged southward;
after 10:30 UT through nearly 12:30 UT total field strength decreased unsteadily and
at about 14:50 UT it was primarily northward again.
EARTH
14:50 UT a magnitude 5.9 quake occured in Papua New Guinea (depth: 454 km) at a distance of 96 km north-northwest from Kimbe. Se also: seismotectonics of the New Guinea region and vicinity.
Space
Between 16 UT - 19 UT the Bz component was again with notable sustained southward excursions;
until about 20:10 UT the total field strength decreased,
when another enhancement occurred, which reached 11 nT and
solar wind speed increased slightly from about 300 to 360 km/s.
The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled.
(Update -): EARTH

Hungary
Wednesday, 9 November 2016  Hungarian Prime Minister declares 'deadly' Clinton's election defeat 'great news'.
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán congratulated Donald Trump on his victory. 'What a great news. Democracy is still alive,' he wrote on Facebook page. Mr. Orbán was the first European leader to favour one candidate over the other. In July, he claimed Mr. Trump's foreign policies were 'vital' to his nation's plans. He has upset fellow EU members in the past over policy, most recently with his tough stance on Europe's migrant crisis. He strongly objected to EU resettlement plans and built a fence along Hungary's southern border. 'The migration and foreign policy advocated by the Republican candidate Mr Trump is good for Europe and vital for Hungary,' Mr. Orbán said in July. Meanwhile European Union leaders have invited US President-elect Trump to come visit the 28-nation bloc as possible to assess trans-Atlantic ties. EU Council President Tusk and his Commission counterpart Juncker said that, despite Trump's campaign talk of protectionism and isolationism, both sides 'should consolidate the bridges we have been building across the Atlantic'. Tusk famously quoted his wife during the U.S. election campaign, saying that 'One Donald is more than enough.!' After Wednesday's shock election result, Tusk and Juncker said that 'it is more important than ever to strengthen trans-Atlantic relations.' That is why they invited Trump to come over for a visit 'at your earliest convenience'. (Source: DailyMail): http://tinyurl.com/qhohepw

November 9, 2016  Anxious world confronts the reality of Trump as U.S. President. Putin was the first global leader to welcome Trump’s stunning election victory, which left much of the rest of the world anxious. “Russia is ready and wants to restore full relations with the United States.” Doing so, he said, “would have a positive effect on the overall climate of world affairs, given the special responsibility of Russia and the U.S. for maintaining global stability and security.” Russia’s response reflected the mood in countries with strained relations with outgoing President Obama. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán was the first national leader to express support for Trump back in July. In East Asia, prospects for trade and security dominated reaction. The U.S. trade deficit with Asian partners was a key campaign issue, and Trump threatened to slap punitive tariffs on Chinese imports, discard a regional trade pact and review key security alliances with Japan and South Korea. Trump should work with China to build “a new paradigm of major power relations,” China’s official Xinhua News Agency said in a commentary, using a phrase that’s important to China because it indicates equal status with the U.S. Obama used it after Chinese President Xi took power in 2012, but later dropped it as tensions increased over China’s assertiveness over territorial disputes in Asia. Earlier, Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Lu said both countries had benefited from two-way trade. (Source: Bloomberg): http://tinyurl.com/ooxjynw

Nov 9, 2016  Republican Trump stunned the world by defeating heavily favored rival Mrs. Clinton in Tuesday's presidential election, ending eight years of Democratic rule and sending the United States on a new, uncertain path.
A wealthy real-estate developer and former reality TV host, Trump rode a wave of anger toward Washington insiders to win the White House race against Clinton, the Democratic candidate whose gold-plated establishment resume included stints as a first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state. Worried a Trump victory could cause economic and global uncertainty, investors were in full flight from risky assets. But the U.S. dollar and world stocks began to steady in the European morning on Wednesday, having been hammered overnight. Trump collected enough of the 270 state-by-state electoral votes needed to win a four-year term that starts on Jan. 20, taking battleground states where presidential elections are traditionally decided, U.S. television networks projected. He appeared with his family before cheering supporters in a New York hotel ballroom, saying it was time to heal the divisions caused by the campaign and find common ground after a campaign that exposed deep differences among Americans. "It is time for us to come together as one united people," Trump said. "I will be president for all Americans." He said he had received a call from Clinton to congratulate him on the win and praised her for her service and for a hard-fought campaign. His comments were an abrupt departure from his campaign trail rhetoric in which he repeatedly slammed Clinton as "crooked" amid supporters' chants of "lock her up." Republicans also kept control of Congress. Television networks projected the party would retain majorities in both the 100-seat U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives, where all 435 seats were up for grabs. In his victory speech, he said he had a great economic plan, would embark on a project to rebuild American infrastructure and would double U.S. economic growth. His win raises a host of questions for the United States at home and abroad. He campaigned on a pledge to take the country on a more isolationist, protectionist "America First" path. He has vowed to impose a 35 percent tariff on goods exported to the United States by U.S. companies that went abroad. Trump at 70 will be the oldest first-term U.S. president. Countries around the world reacted with stunned disbelief. German Defense Minister von der Leyen, an ally of Chancellor Angela Merkel, described the result as a "huge shock" and questioned whether it meant the end of  "Pax Americana", the state of relative peace overseen by Washington that has governed international relations since World War Two. Neighbor Mexico was pitched into deep uncertainty by the victory for Trump who has often accused it of stealing U.S. jobs and sending criminals across the border. British Prime Minister May congratulated Trump and said the two countries would remain "strong and close partners on trade, security and defence." Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif called on Washington to stay committed to last year's international nuclear deal with Iran, which Trump has threatened to rip up. Trump's national security ideas have simultaneously included promises to build up the U.S. military while at the same time avoiding foreign military entanglements. He wants to rewrite international trade deals to reduce trade deficits and has taken positions that raise the possibility of damaging relations with America's most trusted allies in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Trump has promised to warm relations with Russia that have chilled under President Obama over Russian President Putin's intervention in the Syrian civil war and his seizure of Ukraine's Crimea region. Putin sent Trump a congratulatory note on Wednesday, saying he hoped that they can get the U.S.-Russian relationship out of crisis. Trump's victory marked a frustrating end to the presidential aspirations of Clinton, 69, who failed for the second time to be elected the first woman U.S. president. Trump seized on the emails to charge that Clinton represented a corrupt political system in Washington that had to be swept clean. (Source: Reuters): http://tinyurl.com/qx9klkr

2016. VIII. 4. Izotópos vizsgálattal az egyének származási helye és mobilitása térképezhető fel a fogakban és a csontokban található stroncium elemzése révén. Ennek az elemnek az aránya ugyanis mindig jellemző egy adott földrajzi környezetre, és belekerülve a vizekbe, növényekbe, az ezeket fogyasztó helyiek csontszövetében is lenyomatot hagy. Gyermek- és fiatalkorban a stroncium a fogzománcban konzerválódik, ahol az egyén élete végéig utal a származása földrajzi helyére. Más csontokban viszont a csontszövet folyamatosan átalakul, ezért a stronciumizotópok aránya ott azt a helyet tükrözi, s az egyén a halála előtti években élt. Ezzel a módszerrel egy adott környezetben jól elkülöníthetők a helyiek és az első generációs bevándorlók, kimutatható a kapcsolat együtt mozgó személyek között, valamint megállapítható, hogy a nem helyi személyek ugyanarról a területről származtak-e. A vándorlás követésére lehetőséget ad a különböző társadalmi helyzetű egyének étrendjének, életmódjának rekonstruálása is. Erről a stabil szén- és nitrogénizotópok adatainak elemzése árulkodik, hiszen a csontokba épülve őrzik a rendszeresen fogyasztott táplálék nyomelemeinek összetételét. A szénizotópok arányát a növények fotoszintézisének típusa határozza meg, ezen belül jól elkülöníthetők pl. a szárazföldi illetve vízi eredetű élelmiszerek vagy akár a kölesfogyasztás mint jellegzetesség. A nitrogénizotóp aránya a szervezetben nagyobb mértékű húsfogyasztásra, tehát magasabb társadalmi státusra utal.

2015. szeptember. Magyarország. Vekerdi József (1927-2015). Juhász András nekrológja

2016.01.12. 21:04 Eleve

 .

Nekrológ

   Budapesten, 2015. szeptember 28-án, életének 89. évében elhunyt Vekerdi József Széchenyi-díjas nyelvész, az Országos Széchényi Könyvtár nyugalmazott osztályvezetője, indológus, a nyelvtudományok doktora, az Eötvös József Collegium egykori igazgatója.

   Vekerdi József Debrecenben született. Szülei mindketten a Református Egyház debreceni iskoláiban tanítottak. A Vekerdi testvéreket – Lászlót, és öccsét – az elmúlt fél évezred magyar szellemi kultúrájához ezernyi szállal kapcsolódó, évszázados erdélyi kapcsolatokkal is bíró Debreceni Református Kollégium készítette fel. József, aki már itt élénk érdeklődést tanúsít két klasszikus nyelv - a latin és a szanszkrit – iránt, kitűnő eredménnyel érettségizik, 1945-ben pedig latin-görög-orosz szakosként felvételt nyer a budapesti Báró Eötvös József Collegiumba. Itt, a Ménesi úti elitképzőben az orosz nyelv elsajátítását maga Keresztury kultúrpolitikus, a Collegium igazgatója javasolja neki. 1946. február közepétől az intézmény főiskolai jelleggel működik; Vekerdi József az újjászervezett szanszkrit oktatás egyik első diákja is. Az ifjú emberi tartásának és majdani munkáinak igényességét alapjaiban határozták meg képzése során azok a hatások, amelyeket családja, továbbá a Debreceni Református Kollégium tanárai és a Báró Eötvös József Collegium professzorai gyakoroltak reá, a legjobb kutatási hagyományokat is közvetítve számára. Itt, a Collegiumban hagyományos érték mindenek előtt a munka, az emberi tisztesség, legalaposabb felkészültség, továbbá kritikus látásmód, vitázó kedv. Megbecsült az önirónia, kajánság is. A kultúra, a tudomány igézetében a világ legjelentékenyebbnek tartott helyeinek egyike a Könyvtár. A collegisták kérdezésre nevelt fiatalok; erős, önkormányzati jellegű, demokratikus közösségi élet szellemének letéteményesei. Úgy nevelik itt különböző nézeteket valló emberek együttesévé a collegistákat, hogy vidéki középiskolai tanárként is tudják majd: a legfontosabb a nemzet jövője, azért tartoznak felelősséggel.
   1947-ben, miután Keresztury lemond a kultuszminiszteri tárca vezetéséről, megszűnik a politikai védőburok az apolitikus Collegium körül, pártlap hasábjain az intézmény képzési elveit nyílt támadás éri. Egyidejűleg az „internátus” belső életének átpolitizálására törekvő hallgatói frakció előretör. A folyamatot a collegisták többsége még próbálja akadályozni akkor, amikor 1948. májusában, kommunista jelölt ellenében Vekerdi Józsefet választják diákelnökké. Válaszul a hatalom a Collegium igazgatója elé tár egy listát, amely azoknak a nevét tartalmazta, akiket a választásban való közreműködés miatt ki kellene zárnia az intézetből. Kersztury - akinek collegiumi jelmondata ez: „Szabadon szolgál a szellem” – a megszorítást nem vállalja, lemond igazgatói posztjáról. A „fordulat évét” követően, 1949-ben, közéletből átvett koncepciós perek mintájára - bár ”szakmailag kétségtelenül kitűnő" collegista - Vekerdit, az Eötvös Collegium utolsó szabadon választott diákelnökét, akinek legkiválóbb a kapcsolata Kereszturyval, kizárják az Eötvös Collegiumból.
   Vekerdi József az Eötvös Loránd Tudományegyetemen folytatja, fejezi be tanulmányait, latin-görög-orosz szakon. Szakdolgozatát ógörög témában, bukolikus költészetről írja. 1950-1956 között - „reakciósnak” tartott beállítottsága ellenére - kénytelenek alkalmazni, mivel szükség van a még oly ritka orosz nyelvtudására; az ELTE Bölcsészettudományi Karának Orosz Intézetében orosz nyelvet tanít. Munkahelyéből 1952-ben rendeletileg Lenin Intézetet hoznak létre, amely 1954-től önálló felsőoktatási intézményként működik; az itt induló indológus képzésben Vekerdi a szanszkrit nyelv tanára. Közben páliul, perzsául, tibetiül is tanul. 1955-ben elkészíti nyelvtudományi kandidátusi disszertációját, címe: „Abundentia praesontis az ó-indben". Kezdődő tudományos pályája gyűjteményes kötetekben megjelenő verstani tanulmányokkal indul. Alapvetően a nyelv, a költészet, főképp indiai klasszikus művészi versformák magyar nyelven való hű tolmácsolása kerül kutatásainak középpontjába.
   Az 1956-os magyar forradalom napjaiban többször találkozik Ataurral, az az év szeptemberében Budapestre érkezett indiai ügyvivővel, és vele utóbb is fenntartja a kapcsolatot. A Szovjetunióval különleges viszonyt ápoló India az egyetlen ország, amely nyíltan kiáll a magyar forradalom mellett, a magyar forradalom leverése utáni megtorlás mérséklése, számos halálra ítélt életének megmentése érdekében pedig közben tud járni. Vekerdi a Szovjetunióba történt deportálások ellen tiltakozó jegyzéket fordít le angol nyelvre, azzal ellátja a budapesti Indiai Nagykövetséget, így segítve szót emelni harmincezer elhurcolt magyar kiszabadítása ügyében A kor politikájával való ezen újabb ütközése miatt börtönbe kerül, egyetemi oktatói pályafutása derékba törik. Három évet ül börtönben. Szabadulását követően, 1960-tól 1963-ig segédmunkás a Chinoin Gyógyszergyárban. Ráérő perceiben perzsából fordít, és a Rámájana című ősi indiai nagyeposz verses fordítását végzi. Közlési lehetőségei korlátozottak. Volt Eötvös-collegisták – így az Európa Kiadónál és Magyar Helikonnál dolgozó Lator - juttatják munkákhoz. Szanszkrit verses művekből nyersfordításokat készít Rab, Jánosy, Weöres számára. Válogatásában, utószavával és jegyzeteivel jelenik meg a perzsa Khajjám Omar verseinek fordítás-kötete és az óind Mahábhárata. 1962-ben a Tankönyvkiadónál - Tegyey társszerzőjeként - indoeurópai nyelvtudományba bevezető, valamint latin nyelv történetét feldolgozó egyetemi nyelvészeti jegyzeteik látnak napvilágot, az általa lefordított ókori ind regék pedig már tényleges fordítói neve alatt jelennek meg,
   1963-ban Keresztury - aki 1950-től a nemzeti könyvtár főosztályvezetője - az Országos Széchényi Könyvtár Régi Nyomtatványok Tárában, majd a Gyarapítási Osztályon segíti hozzá Vekerdi Józsefet álláshoz. Hivatali munkáján túl, érdeklődése nyelvészeti és verstani tanulmányok megírására, cigány népmesék gyűjtésére és verses szanszkrit irodalmi szövegek fordítására irányul. Tanulmányozza a magyarországi cigány nyelvjárásokat, megtanulja, beszéli azokat. Társszerzőként több könyvben is beszámol cigány nyelvészeti és néprajzi gyűjtései eredményeiről. Az itt is évszázadok óta élő, új-ind cigány nyelveket beszélők vonatkozásában első sorban a cigányság története és nevelése érdekli. Ugyanakkor egyedülálló törekvése, hogy szanszkritból való átültetései eredeti versmértékben, az eredeti művek irodalmi szépségét visszaadva, műremek voltukat megőrizve szülessenek.
   1972-ben kiutazik Erdélybe, felmérni az ottani magyar kulturális helyzetet, különösen magyar érdekeltségű könyvtárakét. Útjáról visszatérve beszámol a nemzeti könyvtárban arról, hogy Erdélyben alig jutnak magyar könyvhöz, arra ott nagy-nagy szükség van, hogy napról napra szorítják vissza a magyar nyelvű iskolákat, egyetemi oktatást, magyar könyvek beszerzésére minimális pénzt fordítanak. Kezdeményezi Kárpát-medencei, külhoni magyar könyvtárak könyvekkel és folyóiratokkal való megsegítését. 1973 szeptemberében kandidátusként, osztályvezetői besorolásban kinevezik az Országos Széchényi Könyvtárban a Nemzetközi Csereszolgálat (továbbiakban: NCS) osztálynak az élére, amely előzőleg, mintegy két évtizeden át a jó emlékű Gombocz osztályvezető irányításával működött.
   A magyar kormányzat épp ötven évvel korább, 1923-ban csatlakozott a hivatalos és tudományos kiadványok nemzetközi cseréjét szabályozó Brüsszeli Egyezményekhez. A nemzetközi kiadványcsere magyarországi meghonosítója, intézményesítője maga gróf Klebelsberg Kuno, a hazai kultusztálca élén szereplő legragyogóbb elménk. Ő mutat rá: Maradék-Magyarország nyomdatermékeit, mint kötelező-példányokat az Országos Széchényi Könyvtár megkapja, de az elszakított területeken megjelenő magyar könyvek megszerzése nagy nehézségekbe ütközik. A nemzetközi könyvcsere rendszeres megszervezésével remél enyhíteni ezen a bajon. Kifejti: a háború kitörése óta eltelt nyolc év alatt az OSZK kurrens gyűjteményében legtátongóbb hiányok keletkeztek, azokat Magyarország pótolni kívánja s így legalább egyetlen országos könyvtárunk legyen, mely e számunkra szükséges, legszámottevőbb kiadványokat bírja. Közvetlen könyvtári érdeknél magasabb, nemzeti érdek kívánja, hogy a gyűjtött hazai, és a külhonban megjelenő tudományos kiadványok mellett a könyvtári hungarikumok magyar nemzeti könyvtárunk, az OSZK gyűjteményében a teljesség igényével szerepeljenek.
   Az 1970-es évekre a nemzetközi kiadványcsere tevékenység, immár UNESCO, IFLA nemzetközi könyvtáros szervezet égisze alatt a kulturális együttműködés egyik legelterjedtebb formája az északi féltekén. Az egyes nemzeti kiadványcsere csereszolgálatok működését megújított nemzetközi szerződés szavatolja, intézményesült tevékenységüket az egyes szerződött államok tartják fenn. Az IFLA Nemzetközi Kiadványcsere Szakosztálya tízévente külön kötetben megjelenteti ajánlásait. Ezek nyomán az egyes országokban a Nemzetközi Csereszolgálatokat - szak-tevékenységük és gazdaságos működésük elősegítésére – a nemzeti könyvtárakhoz rendelik, nyolc-kilenc főt foglalkoztató szervezeti egység formában. A magyar NCS Magyarországé, a magyarságé, s mint olyan, OSZK-s, nemzeti könyvtári kötelezettségeket is teljesítő szervezeti egysége a hazai kulturális intézményrendszernek. Az NCS könyvtári vonalon kapuja az országnak és az OSZK-nak a külföld felé, az osztály vezetőjéé pedig a legbizalmibbnak tekintett állás.
   Vekerdi József, NCS osztályvezető az OSZK vezetése előtt hangzó bemutatkozó beszédében elmondta: az intézmény külföldi kapcsolatait fenntartani, erősíteni akarja, keleti és nyugati partnerekkel egyaránt, részint az OSZK könyvtári hungarikum beszerzési érdekei szerint, részint nemzeti könyvtárunk jó híre, külföldi partnerek előtti jó renoméja tekintetében, De ezen belül különös szeretettel szeretne foglalkozni a szomszédos országok nemzeti és egyéb könyvtáraival való cserekapcsolatok ápolásával.
   Törvény által szavatoltan a tevékenység fő forrása az NCS által kapott két teljes köteles-példány sor könyvekből és folyóiratokból, valamint pótlólagos vásárlás, amit folyóiratok előfizetése egészít ki. Eredeti tudományos és technikai kiadványok, a hivatalos dokumentumok, nemzetközi és hazai tanácskozás kötetek, sorozati kiadványok, folyóiratok, napilapok, térképek, zenei anyagok régebbi és friss megjelenésű duplumainak cseréjére kerülhet sor. Mindenkori nemzeti érdekeinket segíti elő, hogy könyvek, folyóiratok cseréje útján a magyar tudományosság munkájáról és eredményeiről a külföld nagyobb mértékben szerezhet tudomást. Ugyanakkor a könyvtári hungarikumokat, törvény szabta kötelességének megfelelően az OSZK a teljesség igényével gyűjti - köztük a külhonban megjelenteket az NCS révén.
   Vekerdi József felelős vezetőként feleleveníti a kapcsolatokat a nemzetközi kiadványcsere keretében a külvilág nemzeti, egyetemi, további tudományos kutatási könyvtáraival. A hidegháború évei ezek, és kitűnő hivatalos kapcsolatokat ápol Németország, az Egyesült Államok, Nagy-Britannia, további nyugati államok, a Szentszék, a keleti szférába került nagy könyvtárak nemzetközi csereszolgálataival. Célkitűzése, hogy minél előnyösebben tudjon könyveket nyugati partnerektől beszerezni, és ami lényegesebb: magyar könyvtámogatási akciót tömeges méretűvé tenni a Kárpát-medencében. Az idegen nyelvű tudományos művek kiadványcsere útján való rendszeres beszerzése mellett, nemzeti közösségeink kettős elnyomatásának e nehéz éveiben a határon túli magyarlakta területekre irányulóan megszervezi a magyarság friss megjelenésű hazai könyvekkel való könyvtámogatását. Ő maga erre a tevékenységére a legbüszkébb, úgy érzi, ezzel használ legtöbbet a magyarságnak. Közvetlen munkatársaival évente több tízezer kötet kitűnő könyvet sikerül kijuttatnia külhoni, magyar érdekeltségű könyvtári intézményekbe, a magyar kulturális identitás és anyanyelv megőrzésének támogatása, ápolása céljából. Ugyanakkor az NCS az az intézmény, amely - főképp köteles példányok felhasználásával - az OSZK gyűjteménye céljaira beszerzi kiadványcsere útján a külhonban megjelenő könyvtári hungarikumok mintegy 95%-át. Vekerdi kiegyensúlyozza a cserekapcsolatok partneri rendszerét; az 1980-as évekre a hasznosítható eszközök értékét tekintve a korábbi egytizednyi részarány helyett fele-fele arányban részesülnek már a határon túli magyar érdekeltségű könyvtárak a további külföldi cserepartnerek mellett a magyar NCS ráfordításaiból.
     1979-ben Vekerdi József a nyelvtudomány doktora lesz. Akadémiai disszertációját A magyarországi cigány nyelvjárások címmel védi meg. Ugyanabban az évben, Várnaggyal közösen írt, angol nyelven is napvilágot látó, A cigány gyerekek nevelésének és oktatásának problémái című egyetemi jegyzetét, nézetük miatt – minthogy a cigányság jövőjét az őket befogadó kultúrához való alkalmazkodásban látják - politikai motivációtól sem mentes támadások érik. Válogatásában és jegyzeteivel jelenik meg cigány népballadákat és keserveseket tartalmazó kötet, valamint cigány népmeséké. Önálló kötetekben teszi közzé a magyarországi cigány nyelvjárások nyelvtanát, majd azoknak szótárát, továbbá a hazai cigány kutatások történetét. Szerkesztésében jelennek meg Erdős Kamill cigány-tanulmányai. Szanszkrit eredetiből magyar prózára fordított kiemelkedő művek látnak napvilágot kitűnő tolmácsolásában. Szanszkrit irodalmat ismertető és indiai tárgyú szócikkek jelentős részét is ő jegyzi az 1970 - 1992 között megjelenő Világirodalmi Lexikonban. Tudományos pályáján a verstani tematika továbbra is meghatározóan jelen van munkásságában. Műfordításait a nyelvi jelentés és a ritmikai hűség feltétlen tisztelete jellemzi. Mesteri átültetései során a hű műfordítói nyelvhasználat az eredeti mitologikus rendszerkapcsolatok történeti hátterének feltárása, átfogó ismerete és az anyanyelv mesteri alkalmazása révén válik lehetségessé. Nagyra becsülve szereti a magyar költészetet, legkiemelkedőbbnek Arany költői munkásságát tekinti, a népnyelv gazdagította pontos nyelvhasználatot, melynek kiművelt, csodás készségeit ő maga is értékes örökségként hozza magával szülőföldjéről. Gyakorta hivatkozik arra - gyönyörű magyar költemény-részletek, illetve fordítás-megfeleltetései felidézésével - hogy mily csodálatos magyar nyelvünk. Általa képesek vagyunk nem csupán klasszikus görög és római versformáknak, de akár mind ama távoli, különös indiai ritmusok ütemes hangzásának tökéletes visszaadására is, melyek műfordításaiban őt is ihletik. Valóságos teremtményeivé így válnak ó-ind költői átültetései, melyeket anyanyelvünk révén honos lélekkel tud feltölteni. E megkettőzött szeretetből adódik, hogy egymaga hovatovább több szanszkrit fordítást jelentet meg, mint az előtte járó magyar indológusok együttvéve. Ugyanakkor, közölt tanulmányai folytán már az 1970-es évekre magyar, német, angol nyelvű, cigány vonatkozású publikációinak száma vetekszik az általa írt szanszkrit témájúakéval. Őt mindezekért, kortársaival – Erdőssel és a népzenekutató Hajdúval együtt - az újabb-kori „ciganológus triász" tagjaként is emlegetik. Három évtizedig – a ’80-as évek közepével bezárólag - gyűjti a cigány nyelveket. Gyűjtéseiről utóbb röviden a Hardinak adott interjúban emlékezik meg.
     Határokon túli magyar érdekeltségű intézmények támogatása ügyében a ’80-as évekre a legszembeötlőbb Románia barátságtalan viselkedése. Erdélyi magyar iskolák gyakorlatilag alig jutnak magyarországi könyvekhez; a román posta részéről szokásos magyarországi kiadvány küldemények egy részének elkobzása. A korabeli hivatalos román magyarellenesség az NCS tevékenységével szemben is nyomon követhető. Erről Vekerdi József teljes nyíltsággal beszámol az 1984-ben sorra került washingtoni nemzetközi kiadványcsere konferencián. A szerb és horvát kollégákon kívül egyedül ő mehet ki a „szocialista tábor”-ból; bár a többit is hívják, de egyszerűen nem engedik ki őket. Így azután Vekerdi ott áll a figyelem középpontjában, és mindent elmondhat. Sőt még azt is hozzáteszi, hogy őt, mint ’public enemy No. 1’-t figyel a határtól kezdődőleg a román titkosrendőrség, és életveszélyes balesetet helyeztek már számára kilátásba. Hozzáteszi: ’I suppose, Romania is the only country in the world where librarianship is life dangerous.’ Megemlékezése szerint ezek után kap vastapsot, mint az egész konferencia legérdekesebb előadásáért. Ott a valósághoz híven elmondja a szovjet helyzetet is, hogy ott más jellegű nehézségek vannak: a nekünk nem kellő könyv anyag ránk zúdítása. A lengyelekkel kevés az érdekeltség, de semmi ellentét nincs. Kárpátaljával kapcsolatban elmondhatja, hogy szerencsére nemzeti féltékenység Kárpátalján nincs, mert a 180 ezer magyar nem olyan veszélyes Moszkvának, mint a 40 millió ukrán, tehát ezért megengedik, hogy a Kárpátaljára magyar könyveket küldjünk. Látják, hogy teljesen őszintén beszél. A magyarországi politikai helyzetet tekintve kéri, engedjék meg, hogy most szubjektív legyen, és elmondja magáról, mind a magyarországi politikai szabadság jellemzőjét, hogy 1956 után a forradalomban való részvételéért – a forradalom szót használja – három évig börtönben ült, és most a magyar nemzeti könyvtár politikailag legfontosabb posztját foglalhatja el; ezt mérjék fel a többi szocialista ország viszonylatában Magyarország jellemzésére.
   Rendszeresen küldet könyveket a határon túli ismert magyar tudósok részére Mindent megtesz annak érdekében, hogy hozzásegítse az erdélyi magyarságot ahhoz, hogy a különböző tudományágakban, humán műveltség tekintetében magasabb szintre juthasson. A történész Jakó, Nagy néprajzkutató, Kallós  népzenegyűjtő, mások, éreztek, sőt fogalmaztak úgy, hogy a Ceausescu diktatúra idején Erdélyben a magyar nyelvű tudományosság Vekerdi József nélkül alighanem megszűnt volna. Mindeközben szanszkrit eredetiből magyar prózára fordítja és megjelenik a Bhagavad-gítá, a Magasztos Szózata. Válogatásában lát napvilágot a Szanszkrit líra önálló kötetben. További kiemelkedő művek kitűnő tolmácsolásában: a Titkos tanítások - Válogatás az upanisadokból; és a Buddha beszédei (utóbbi páli nyelvű szöveg átültetése). Fordításai több kiadásban is napvilágot látnak.
   1990 után az NCS az örvendetesen nagy számban idelátogató erdélyi magyar turisták könyvellátására is berendezkedik, fontosnak tekintve különösképpen a tanáremberek, és az egyetemisták magyar nyelvű szakkönyvekkel való ellátását A nemzetközi kiadványcsere tevékenység keretében a Kárpát-medencei cserepartneri kör kibővül, szükséges ellátására külső forrásból, pályázati úton is sikerül némi forráshoz jutni. Budapesten, 1992. november 2.-án a Bethlen Gábor Alapítvány Márton Áron emlékérmet adományoz az Országos Széchényi Könyvtár Nemzetközi Csereszolgálata részére, a magyarság egyetemes ügyét szolgáló  munkásságáért. Az egyedi művészi emlékérem készítője Szervátiusz.
   Alapvetően az NCS-nek, a vázolt mindenkori magyar kultúrpolitikai célok megvalósításához, tevékenysége eredményes véghezvitelére a köteles-példányok 1997-el bezárólag állnak rendelkezésére, az OSZK költségvetésében kiadványcsere céljaira elkülönített megfelelő pénzkeret pedig 2001-ig. Vekerdi József, aki az NCS-t több mint három évtizeden át irányította, vezetőként mindeme forrásokkal körültekintően, jól gazdálkodott a mutatkozó igényekhez képest, az NCS mindenkor szerény anyagi lehetőségei szerint.
   Az 1990. decemberében rehabilitált, 1991 januárjától ismét a művelődési és közoktatási miniszter közvetlen irányítása alatt működő Eötvös Collegium 1992-ben Dr. Vekerdi Józsefet választja igazgatónak. Ügy iránti elkötelezettségből, OSZK-s feladatai ellátása mellett vállalja a tisztséget. Kísérletet tesz a régi collegiumi rend, szellem visszaállítására. Egy év után leköszön posztjáról. Az 1994-es kormányváltás után - kora politikájával való összeütközésének újabb részeként - ezúttal az OSZK Nemzetközi Csereszolgálati Osztály vezetőjeként éri súlyos támadás 1995 januárjában. Közvetlen munkatársai kiállnak mellette: a könyvtár vezetésének címzett beadványukban tanúsítják, hogy az ellene közölt vádak hamisak, koholtak. Azonban a Bokros-csomag jegyében, minisztériumi nyomásra, nemzetközi visszhangot keltő módon távoznia kell OSZK-ban betöltött állásából. Mintegy folyományként a két, teljes köteles példány sort, amely évtizedeken át a Nemzetközi Csereszolgálat céljaira van rendelve, biztosítva, 1997-es könyvtári törvény szövegében már nem nevesíti a korabeli kulturális vezetés, létalapjától fosztva meg a magyar nemzetközi kiadványcsere tevékenységet. 2001-ben az NCS intézményt, mint szervezeti egységet – osztályt - az OSZK felszámolja, csoportba olvasztja bele. Az NCS szervezeti helyreállítására (rehabilitálására) utóbb sem kerül sor, így az Országos Széchényi Könyvtár nemzeti könyvtári teendőiből épp az sikkad el, ami az OSZK esetében Európában oly egyedülállóan, sajátosan gazdagító: hogy könyvtári gyűjteménye össznemzeti.
    Vekerdi József egy igaztalanul megvádolt és megszenvedett ember hites életével bír. 
    1995 őszére emlékiratban és diplomamunkában is megörökítésre kerül az irányításával folyt, több mint három évtizedes NCS tevékenység története. Ő pedig, nyugdíjas éveiben kiteljesíti fordítói munkásságát. Az 1990-es évek második felében további fordításai jelennek meg; szanszkritból a Buddha élete, a Dhammapada, a Bhagavad-gítá és a Rámájana, és páli nyelvről pedig a Buddhista születésregék. Vágyzuhatag címmel szanszkrit versfordítás-kötetet szerkeszt. 2000 decemberében, indológiai munkásságáért, az Indiai Köztársaság és Magyarország közötti kulturális kapcsolatok elmélyítéséért a legkiválóbb külföldi kutatóknak járó indiai - Dayawati Modi Vishwa Sanskriti Samman elnevezésű - díjban részesül. A díjnak, amelyet ünnepélyes körülmények között Bombey-ben vesz át India kulturális miniszterétől, első ízben van külföldi tudós kitüntetettje. Az ekkor 73 esztendős tudós első alkalommal jár Indiában. 2001-ben Bibliothecarius Emeritus címmel tünteti ki az Országos Széchényi Könyvtár. 2002-ben "a magyarországi cigány szubkultúra, valamint a szanszkrit nyelv és irodalom kutatásában, fordításában és közkinccsé tételében végzett egyedülálló munkásságáért” Széchenyi-díjat kap. A díjjal járó összeg egyharmadát kárpátaljai magyar oktatási intézmények könyvekkel való ellátására fordíttatja. 2002 és 2008 között az ELTE Történelemtudományi Doktori Iskolájában óraadó tanárként szanszkrit szövegolvasási gyakorlat órákat tart. Befejezi Apponyi hungarica gyűjteményének múlt század elejéről torzóban maradt katalógusát - e munkája három kötetben jelenik meg 2004-ben. Napvilágot lát az általa összeállított „Magyarországi cigány nyelvjárások szótára” második, javított kiadásban. Szerkesztésében Nagy gyűjtötte erdélyi cigány népmesék jelennek meg könyv alakban.. Majd Cicerotól fordít latinból két kötetet, Tusculumi eszmecsere és A legfőbb jóról és rosszról címmel. Jegyzeteket állít össze a szerelem tankönyvéhez, a Káma-Szútrához. A hindu legendairodalom gyöngyszemei is fordításában jelennek meg,”Puránák” címmel. Mérvadó tanulmányt közöl Szent István király Intelmeiről, továbbá az Endre és az Imre név eredetéről. 2007-ben az Eötvös Collegium ad otthont tudományos ünneplésének. Az ott elhangzott klasszika-filológiai, indológiai és magyar kultúrtörténeti tanulmányok egy része 2009-ben megjelent kötetben látott napvilágot. Az NCS élén folytatott munkásságát méltató előadásban, az említett ünneplés keretében hangzik: mindenkori szempontunk szerint ő a Nemzet Könyvtárosa.
   2007-ben, nyolcvan évesen hozzáfog Kálvin latin nyelvű teológiai szövegének, a János evangéliuma magyarázatának fordításához, amely 2011-ben jelenik meg. Tagore új-ind verselése kapcsán előadásban közli: egész Európában egyetlen kivétel, hogy néhány verset bengáli eredetiből ő, Vekerdi József fordított le – magyarra, eredeti versformában.
   2009-ben elhunyt bátyja, László könyvtáros, tudománytörténész.
   Vekerdi József puritán életvezetésű, könyvespolcos, kicsinyke pesti lakásában élő, nyarakat kertes leányfalui nyaralójában töltő ember volt; reformáció szellemében eljáró, eurázsiai kitekintéssel. Válságos helyzetekből való kilábalásainkról gondolkodva kiútnak a magyar nemzet mindenkori egységét tekintette. Az NCS-n, osztályvezetői szobájában, tovább ajándékozandó könyvek polcain mindig az élen szerepelt a Biblia néhány példánya, többféle felekezet magyar nyelvű kiadásában - és ha nélkülöző toppant be, a szükséges példányt neki oda ajándékozta.

   Búcsúztatására 2015. október 18- án (vasárnap) 14 órakor, a Református Egyház szertartása szerint került sor a leányfalui temetőben.

XII. 4.  Az EU mindezek után még két éven át - azaz 2017 végéig - ellenőrizheti a magyar állam által szétosztott uniós pénzek felhasználását. 2016-2017-ben az EU (akár szakosított szervezete, az OLAF révén) nagyítóval vizsgálja majd, hogy milyen magyar uniós pályázat esetében sérthettek jogot a kiírók, és ahol lehet, büntetni fognak, visszafizettetik a támogatást, vagy egy részét. A Juncker vezette Bizottság részéről egyfajta „taktikai váltás” ez az Orbán-kormánnyal szemben a Barroso vezette bizottság hozzáállásához képest. A tét százmilliárdos nagyságrendű. Kisebb-nagyobb szabálytalanságok a pénzek felhasználása körül gyakorlatilag bárhol előfordulhatnak, ezért az EU eleve visszatartja az ellenőrzések végéig a tagállami pénzek 5 százalékát (vagyis 435 milliárd forintot, ami a magyar GDP 1,5 százaléka). Ezt a kormányok jellemzően saját költségvetésükből előfinanszírozzák. Az Orbán-kormány az elmúlt évek tapasztalata alapján úgy számol, hogy a 8700 milliárdnak két százaléka miatt majd indul eljárás, ennyit nem tudunk majd felhasználni, vagy másra kell majd kiosztani, úgynevezett korrekcióval. Vagyis adódik egy 260 milliárd forint nagyságrendű különbség az eltérő kalkulációkból. Ez a kormány kockázata, hiszen mire kiderül, hogy ezt a pénzt esetleg mégsem kapjuk meg, már régen kifizették a magyar költségvetésből. Biztos, hogy kötelezettségszegési eljárás indul a szeptember 15-től életbe lépett új menekültügyi törvényekkel szemben. Ezek gyakorlatilag lehetetlenné teszik, hogy Magyarországon valaki menekültstátuszt kapjon, a bíróságok futószalagon hozzák meg az ítéleteket, amiket magyarul kapnak meg az érintettek. Ez, illetve az, hogy fiatalkorúakat is felnőttként kezelnek a hatóságok, és kiutasíthatnak, rabosíthatnak, szinte biztos, hogy uniós jogot sért, így garantált az eljárás. Ugyanakkor „ez olyan ügy lenne, amiből a magyar kormány odahaza jól is kijöhet”, annyi politikai érzéke pedig van a Bizottságnak, hogy ne ilyen szituációkat kreáljon. Így szerinte alapvetően korrupcióellenes, vagy versenyjogi eljárások jöhetnek majd – de azok akár eddig nem látott mennyiségben is. Időben ezek akár egybe is eshetnek a 2007-2013-as pénzek ellenőrzésével, vagyis a magyar kormánynak duplán is rossz lehet a választások előtt, amikor százmilliárdos összegben fizettethet vissza támogatást az EU. Jurova, a Bizottság jogállamiságért felelős biztosa ráadásul külön is figyel majd a magyar kormányra . nemrég arról beszélt, hogy komoly jogsértés esetén az EU alapszerződésének uniós szavazati jogot, és támogatásokat felfüggesztő úgynevezett 7. cikkelyének alkalmazását is indítványozhatja majd. Az uniós szakzsargonban csak „atomcsapásként” emlegetett cikkely valódi alkalmazását senki nem tartja reálisnak, a Bizottság mégis jóváhagyta, hogy aláírásgyűjtés induljon ennek érdekében a magyar kormánnyal szemben. Hét tagállamban kell legalább egymillió aláírást összegyűjteni, de még ez sem bír kötelező erővel, a Bizottságnak csak napirendre kell venni a kérdést, a cikkelyről a tagállamokat tömörítő Tanácsnak kell döntést hoznia. Információink szerint ugyanakkor a magyar kormány az Európai Bíróságon támadja majd meg a döntést, mert szerintük ez ellentétes az uniós alapszerződésekkel. Abban mindenki egyetértett, hogy a Bizottság akkor sem tesz lépéseket a 7. cikkely alkalmazására, ha összejön a megfelelő számú aláírás. (Forrás: VS): http://tinyurl.com/jlh3jh5

2015. XII. 1.  A máltai menekültügyi uniós csúcson külön is találkozott volna egymással Orbán Viktor és Merkel Angela, de német részről az utolsó pillanatban lemondták a megbeszélést.

A menekültválságról lett volna eredetileg szó, de több forrásból származó információink szerint Merkel stábja az utolsó pillanatban közölte a magyar delegációval, hogy elmarad a megbeszélés, a döntés okát nem nevezték meg. Az Európai Néppárt október 22-i konferenciáján Merkel külön beszélt a magyar kormányfővel, ám  a találkozó egyáltalán nem telt jó hangulatban.

Iraq
December 1, 2015  Iraqis think the U.S. is in cahoots with the islamic state, and it is hurting the war. Saadi says his friend saw U.S. helicopters delivering bottled water to islamic state positions. He is a commander in one of the Shiite militias that last month helped push the militants out of the oil refinery near Baiji in northern Iraq alongside the Iraqi army. The islamic state is “almost finished,” he said. “They are weak. If only America would stop supporting them, we could defeat them in days.” The perception among Iraqis that the United States is somehow in cahoots with the militants it claims to be fighting appears, however, to be widespread across the country’s Sunni-Shiite sectarian divide, and it speaks to more than just the troubling legacy of mistrust that has clouded the United States’ relationship with Iraq since the 2003 invasion and the subsequent withdrawal eight years later. One example of how little leverage the United States now has, Iraqi Prime Minister Abadi pushed back swiftly against an announcement by Defense Secretary ­ Carter that an expeditionary force of U.S. troops will be dispatched to Iraq to conduct raids, free hostages and capture islamic state leaders. Iraq’s semiautonomous region of Kurdistan, where support for the United States remains strong, has said it would welcome more troops. But Abadi indicated they would not be needed. The allegations of U.S. collusion with the islamic state are aired regularly in parliament by Shiite politicians and promoted in postings on social media. They are persistent enough to suggest a deliberate campaign on the part of Iran’s allies in Iraq to erode American influence, U.S. officials say. In one typical recent video that appeared on the Facebook page of a Shiite militia, a lawmaker with the country’s biggest militia group, the Badr Organization, waves apparently new U.S military MREs (meals ready to eat) — one of them chicken and dumplings — allegedly found at a recently captured islamic state base in Baiji, offering proof, he said, of U.S. support. “It’s part of the Iranian propaganda machine.” The fighters there insist there have been no strikes by the Americans at all. “We’d be better off without them,” said 1st Lt. Fadl, who is serving with the Iraqi elite forces in Baiji. He said that the only air support had come from the Iraqi air force and that he wishes the government would ask the Russians to replace the Americans.

2015. XII. 5.   Így fog az iszlám állam magától összeomlani... Reagan jól látta, ha engedi, hogy a belső ön-ellentmondásai alatt omoljon össze a kommunizmus, akkor örökre hiteltelenné válik. Ami a kommunizmus volt a Szovjetuniónak, az a dzsihádizmus az iszlám államnak: egy ártalmas ideológia legtisztább megnyilvánulása egy állam kormányzásában. Ha megengedjük, hogy magától bukjon el, akkor az iszlám államnak, mint ideának lesz a bukása. Ez nem lenne igaz abban az esetben, ha a vereségét a nyugati erők okoznák egy katonai konfliktusban. Látva a mély strukturális sérülékenységeit és az ideák globális háborújában lévő szimbolikus értékét, a legjobb stratégiánk minden bizonnyal a karanténba zárás: hagyni, hogy a csoport belső motivációját adó ideológia belülről pusztítsa el önmagát, ezzel is gyorsítva a folyamatot, melynek végén elfoglalja méltó helyét a történelem szemétdombján.

United States
December 04, 2015 Why liberal media hate Trump? In the feudal era there were the “three estates” – the clergy, the nobility and the commons. The first and second were eradicated in Robespierre’s Revolution. But in the 18th and 19th century, Burke and Carlyle identified what the latter called a “stupendous Fourth Estate.” Wrote Thackeray: “Of the Corporation of the Goosequill – of the Press … of the fourth estate. … There she is – the great engine – she never sleeps. She has her ambassadors in every quarter of the world – her courtiers upon every road. Her officers march along with armies, and her envoys walk into statesmen’s cabinets.” The fourth estate, the press, the disciples of Voltaire, had replaced the clergy it had dethroned as the new arbiters of morality and rectitude. And with Watergate, the press extracted its pound of flesh. By August 1974, it had reached a new apex of national prestige. In “The Making of the President 1972,”  White described the power the “adversary press” had acquired over America’s public life. “The power of the press in America is a primordial one. It sets the agenda of public discussion, and this sweeping political power is unrestrained by any law. It determines what people will talk and think about – an authority that in other nations is reserved for tyrants, priests, parties and mandarins.” Enter The Donald. His popularity is traceable to the fact that he rejects the moral authority of the media, breaks their commandments and mocks their condemnations. His contempt for the norms of political correctness is daily on display. And that large slice of America that detests a media whose public approval now rivals that of Congress relishes this defiance. The last thing these folks want Trump to do is to apologize to the press. And the media have played right into Trump’s hand. They constantly denounce him as grossly insensitive for what he has said about women, Mexicans, Muslims, McCain and a reporter with a disability. Such crimes against decency, says the press, disqualify Trump as a candidate for president. Yet, when they demand he apologize, Trump doubles down. And when they demand that Republicans repudiate him, the GOP base replies: “Who are you to tell us whom we may nominate? You are not friends. You are not going to vote for us. And the names you call Trump – bigot, racist, xenophobe, sexist – are the names you call us, nothing but cuss words that a corrupt establishment uses on those it most detests.” What the Trump campaign reveals is that, to populists and Republicans, the political establishment and its media arm are looked upon the way the commons and peasantry of 1789 looked upon the ancien regime and the king’s courtiers at Versailles. Yet, now that the fourth estate is as discredited as the clergy in 1789, the larger problem is that there is no arbiter of truth, morality and decency left whom we all respect. Like fourth-century Romans, we barely agree on what those terms mean anymore. (DSource: WND): http://tinyurl.com/qbce2w4

December 3, 2015  Gen. Votel, who leads U.S. Special Operations Command, is the top candidate on a short list to succeed Gen. Austin next year as commander of U.S. Central Command, or CENTCOM, and oversee the military’s fight against the islamic state and terrorism across the Middle East and Afghanistan. Austin was the final commander of the previous Iraq War, a Big Army general who oversaw the withdrawal of tens of thousands of U.S. troops through 2011. Votel is one of the nation’s most experienced commanders of elite special operators. At SOCOM, he is in charge of preparing the military’s special operations forces to be called upon. Previously, he commanded the secretive Joint Special Operations Command, or JSOC, which runs the U.S. military’s most elite missions to hunt and kill terrorist leaders, from June 2011, shortly after the bin Laden raid. JSOC overseas units like the Army’s Special Forces, or Green Berets, Night Stalker aviation units, and Navy SEALs, which to rescue hostages and gather intelligence on terror groups such as the islamic state, or isis. Votel has overseen a swift rise in the special operations ranks. He took command of SOCOM just in August 2014. Previously, he served as deputy commander of the 82nd Airborne Division and commanded the Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment. He helped found the military’s internal agency dedicated to thwarting roadside bombs and served on the Army’s top staff in the Pentagon. Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Dunford said that American special operations units would fight in Iraq at that government’s invitation, and “unilaterally” inside Syria. “We have found groups that already exist and are fighting and which we can enable with special capabilities and train people specially to accompany them or send Americans to accompany them,” Carter said, in testimony before the House Armed Services Committee. CENTCOM is one of the military’s nine combatant commands that divide the globe geographically and manage nuclear, transportation and special operations forces. Headquartered in Tampa, it oversees the wars in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan, and across the Middle East. For the past decade, it has been commanded by generals who previously ran the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Austin was the final commander of the Iraq war overseeing the U.S. troops withdrawal in 2011. Prior commanders included retired Marine Corps Gen. Mattis and Gen. Petraeus.

December 1, 2015  House Dem: Obama could cause ‘devastating nuclear war’ with Russia. President Obama is sending an “expeditionary force” of U.S. military special operators to carry out raids against isis in Iraq and Syria, a move that expands on their decision to send about 50 special operators to Syria to coordinate air strikes. “In full coordination with the Government of Iraq, we’re deploying a specialized expeditionary targeting force to assist Iraqi and Kurdish Peshmerga forces and put even more pressure on [isis],” Defense Secretary Carter told the House Armed Services Committee in announcing the new deployment. Although the term “expeditionary force” evokes large-scale mobilizations such as those seen in World War II or the Iraq War, Carter outlined a more limited deployment. But his announcement still provoked questions about the legal basis for the move, and caused one Democrat to warn of the specter of nuclear war with Russia. Carter got a hint of just how difficult it may be to sell Congress on such legislation when Representative Gabbard (D., Hawaii) suggested that Obama’s decision to place American fighter jets equipped “to target Russian planes” on the border between Turkey and Syria, and his stated opposition to Russian-backed Syrian dictator Assad, could lead the U.S. into a nuclear war with Putin’s regime. “Russia’s installation of their anti-aircraft missile-defense system increases that possibility of — whether it’s intentional or even an accidental event — where one side may shoot down the other side’s plane,” Gabbard told Carter. “And that’s really where the potential is for this devastating nuclear war.” (Source: NationalReview): http://tinyurl.com/jcmq7zt

December 2, 2015 Warning: Scientists could spark megaquake as they drill below Earth's crust for first time Geologists are about to drill three miles under the ocean in a bid to get beneath the Earth's crust and into the mantle for the first time ever. Scientists from Cardiff University are behind the mission. Professor MacLeod, project co-leader, wants to investigate an area at the edge of the crust and mantle called the Moho boundary. It is a place where the seismic waves of earthquakes suddenly change speed. This is because they go from the crust is made up of hard igneous rocks like granites and basalts, into the softer mantle. The area in question is called Atlantis Bank on the South West Indian Ridge of the Indian Ocean. It was chosen because faults and erosion have already thinned the crust there. Many scientists and campaigners now believe there is a direct link between deep drilling and man-made earthquakes. Scientists say that massive earthquakes would only happen in shallower water because of the pressure on top of them at deeper levels. However, geologists were left perplexed by a magnitude-8.3 earthquake that suddenly happened on May 24, 2013, in the Sea of Okhotsk, deep within the Earth's mantle. It happened at a crack where the Pacific Plate was pressing into the mantle. It looks so similar to shallow events, even though it's got 600 kilometres of rock on top of it. In The US state of Oklahoma, anti-fracking campaigners claim it has led to a huge increase in seismic activity since the industry started there. They say that magnitude three and upwards earthquakes have gone from a few dozen in 2012 to 720 this and that many of the earthquakes occurring in swarms in areas where injection wells pump salty waste water — a byproduct of oil and gas production — deep into the Earth. There are fears that the project would be like a massive tracking attempt, as sea water would gush into the mantle, and could even trigger a mega quake. Drilling was also blamed on a large mud volcano in Java, Indonesia in 2006, which displaced more than 30,000 people after a gas exploration project went wrong. Once underway, Expedition 360, as it is called, can be followed live on the web. (Source: Express): http://tinyurl.com/nd27l3w

Nagy baj esetén – például egy rendkívül agresszív anyag esetén – a katasztrófavédelem a lakosság azonnali kimenekítése mellett dönt.

He stressed the plane was flying above northern Lattakia where militants coming from Russia are concentrated. "The Russian bomber was shot down over Syria by an air-to-air surface fired from a Turkish F-16 plane when the bomber was at an altitude of 6,000 meters at a distance of 1 km from the Turkish bomber." Putin said. According to the president, Russia has long been aware of oil supplies to Turkey from Syria’s territories seized by terrorists, which provided tangible financial support for the extremists, adding that monetary support for the militant groups was large, indeed. Putin noted that Turkey’s contacts with NATO member states after the attack against the Russian aircraft look like an attempt to make the alliance serve terrorists. "We will certainly carefully analyse what has happened and today’s tragic event will have serious consequences to Russian-Turkish relations," he said.  (Source: TASS): http://tinyurl.com/o9ryj36

25 November 2015  Thugs hurling stones, cars set on fire and refugee children aged five escorted to school by police: Inside the once tranquil Swedish village at war with migrants housed in emergency centre. Locals and refugees have been fighting in Tärnsjö, 150km from Stockholm. Tensions so bad young migrant children are given a police escort to school. Two warring communities trade insults and throw rocks, leaving many scared to go out. 'We have highest tax rate in the county because we are paying for so many immigrants,' says local councillor. Snapshot of Sweden where 17 migrant centres burned down in two months. As many as one in five now support the far-right Swedish Democrat party. Record: The country is now seeing 10,000 people arrive a week, and has reinstated border checks to keep better control. But locals are starting to feel the burden, and there have been arson attacks across the country aimed at the properties where migrants are living.  Last week, the government announced it was no longer able to house all of the people.

India
November 29, 2015  COP21 Paris climate talks: India looms as obstacle to deal. India’s vulnerability to changes in the climate makes it all the more extraordinary that its government is seen as an obstacle to a successful deal, just as previous administrations were accused of obstructing world trade negotiations.Two weeks ago in Turkey, India blocked efforts by the G20 countries to prepare for an ambitious climate accord. John Kerry, US secretary of state, recently praised China but expressed concern about the “challenge” of India and its desire to burn more dirty coal for electricity. In 2012, its annual per capita carbon dioxide emissions were just 1.6 tonnes per person, compared with 16.4 tonnes per person for the US and 7.1 tonnes per person for China. By 2030 its emissions will still amount to only about 5 tonnes per person per year — half the level in China. The Modi government has also launched an ambitious programme to accelerate investment in renewable energy, particularly solar power, so that in 15 years more than a third of its installed electricity capacity will be based on solar energy, windmills and hydroelectric dams. India does not deny that its greenhouse gas emissions will increase dramatically in absolute terms — from 1.48bn tonnes of CO2 equivalent annually in 2005 to more than 7bn in 2030 — but says that is because of a growing population and the need to provide electricity to the 300m Indians who lack it today, and the requirement for new coal-fired power stations to supplement other sources of electricity. Half of India’s extra emissions are expected to come from coal. The sticking point is more likely to be India’s insistence that signatories reaffirm a pledge of $100bn a year in financial flows from rich countries to poor ones from 2020, to help with emissions reduction and climate change adaptation. India’s domestic cost of capital is high at around 13 per cent and according to the International Energy Agency the country needs to invest $140bn a year on everything from modernising electricity grids for handling fluctuating renewable energy supplies to improved technology for burning coal. India has failed to trumpet from the rooftops its relatively low present and future per capita emissions; and second, it may be too pessimistic about likely technological advances that would permit it to adopt more ambitious carbon emission targets.

November 26, 2015  At the climate talks in Paris next week, all eyes will be on Indian Prime Minister Modi. Developing nations are looking for him to champion their interests in winning funds to mitigate the worst effects of climate change. Richer countries including the U.S. are wary that India could end up scuttling any deal. For Modi, it’s an opportunity to claim his spot among the world’s top statesmen crafting a solution to one of the biggest risks facing humanity -- and he’s unlikely to pass that up. U.S. Secretary of State Kerry told the Financial Times earlier this month that India poses “a challenge" to the negotiations, particularly regarding its desire to continue burning low-grade, domestic coal that’s especially dirty. India’s Environment Minister Javadekar fired back, telling reporters in New Delhi that the statement was “unfair and untrue." He said the U.S. uses triple the amount of coal that India does despite finding shale gas. In September, Indian Power Minister Goyal said Western nations had “polluted the world for the last 150 years with cheap energy” and that India won’t pay for it. Rhetoric aside, India sees the two-week talks as one of the best chances to strike a deal before a presidential election that may bring a Republican to power in the U.S. “The other party waiting in the wings doesn’t believe in climate change," Javadekar told Bloomberg TV India this week, referring to the U.S. election. India’s size makes it essential to any meaningful deal. The country now has 1.3 billion people, and it’s set to overtake China as the world’s most populous country by 2022. It needs an enormous amount of infrastructure investment to raise the lowest living standards among the biggest emerging markets. That means abundant use of emissions-heavy steel, cement and aluminum. India became a leader among developing nations after China broke ranks last year by agreeing to peak in 2030. Instead, India has agreed to reduce the intensity of its fossil-fuel emissions: the amount of CO2 it releases per dollar of gross domestic product -- an approach that leaves plenty of wiggle room. India also irked many climate researchers by including “clean coal" -- an unproven technology -- as part of its target to get 40 percent of its electricity from non-fossil fuels by 2030. Currently, about 60 percent of India’s power comes from coal. By 2040, India will have the fastest-growing electricity demand among major economies and be the top driver of global coal demand, according to the International Energy Agency. Modi set to spearhead a solar alliance of 110 nations that aims to expand the use of solar in the tropics and bring power to non-electrified villages with the backing of rich countries. He just needs to blend his vision of development with his vision of climate protection. They do intersect. Modi has the potential for motivating the country.

Iraq
Nov 30, 2015 Yazidi women tell of rape and enslavement at hands of isis.  More than 3,000 women and girls were taken captive when isis attacked ancestral Yazidi villages around northwestern Iraq's Sinjar Mountain in August 2014. Nearly half-a-million people have been displaced since, according to the Kurdistan Regional Government's Yazidi Affairs Directorate. Today, community leaders say around 2,000 women and girls are still being bought and sold in isis-controlled areas. The young become sex slaves and older women are beaten and used as house slaves, according to survivors and accounts from isis militants. isis has published documents justifying the enslavement of Yazidis as spoils of war. In rare cases, the government of semi-autonomous Kurdistan will pay for the release of women or girls. However, most of the captive women are reliant on a small network of underground activists, or sympathetic guards or even other wives to smuggle them out. More than 1,000 Yazidi women and girls have escaped isis control, but the battle isn't over once they get back. The Jiyan Foundation for Human Rights runs a small clinic in the Kurdish city of Duhok where Yazidi women can receive medical care and psychological treatment. In conservative Yazidi culture, rape victims often are stigmatized and shunned by their families and communities — even despite an edict from the religion's highest authority last year ordering families and communities to embrace former isis captives.

November 23, 2015  White House Gave isis 45 minute warning before bombing oil tankers Why did it take 15 months for the U.S. to target the islamic state's oil infrastructure? “Get out of your trucks now, and run away from them. Warning: air strikes are coming. Oil trucks will be destroyed. Get away from your oil trucks immediately. Do not risk your life,” the leaflet reads. Meanwhile isis gets 45 minutes of warning. While it took the U.S. fifteen months to even begin targeting isis’ oil refineries and tankers, air strikes by Moscow destroyed more than 1,000 tankers in a period of just five days. In comparison, Col. Warren said that the U.S. had taken out only 116 tanker trucks, the “first strike” to target ISIS’ lucrative black market oil business, which funds over 50 per cent of the terror group’s activities. U.S. air strikes targeting isi oil assets are so rare that PBS was caught using footage of Russian fighter jets bombing an oil storage facility in Syria and passing it off as evidence of the U.S. targeting the islamic state’s oil infrastructure. U.S. military pilots have also confirmed that they were ordered not to drop 75 per cent of their ordnance on ISIS targets because they could not get clearance from their superiors. Earlier this year a document emerged confirming that the Pentagon foresaw the rise of isis and that western support for Al-Qaeda groups and other anti-Assad rebels in Syria would lead to the emergence of a “Salafist Principality” that would help to “isolate” Assad. Zero Hedge, adding, “The US didn’t want to cut off islamic state’s funding, because without money, the group couldn’t fight Assad.” isis is receiving support from state sponsors of terror like Turkey and Saudi Arabia. $800,000,000 worth of isis oil has been sold in Turkey, a supposed U.S. ally. isis trucks are routinely allowed to cross back and forth between the islamic state stronghold of Raqqa and Turkey, while the NATO country facilitates black market oil sales on behalf of the terror group. As Ahmed documents, a large cache of intelligence recovered from a raid on an isis safehouse this summer confirms that “direct dealings between Turkish officials and ranking isis members was now ‘undeniable.’ (Source: InfoWars): http://tinyurl.com/nhv5oto

Turkey
November 29, 2015  Turkey has begun a defacto blockade of Russian naval vessels, preventing transit through the Dardanelles and the Strait of Bosphorus, between the Black Sea and Mediterranean. According to the AIS tracking system for the movement of maritime vessels, only Turkish vessels are moving along the Bosphorus, and in the Dardanelles there is no movement of any shipping at all. At the same time, both from the Black Sea, and from the Mediterranean Sea, there is a small cluster of ships under the Russian flag, just sitting and waiting. In addition, shipping inside the Black Sea from Novorossiisk and Sevastopol in the direction of the Bosphorus, no Russian vessels are moving. This indirectly confirms the a CNN statement that Turkey may have blocked the movement of Russian ships on the Dardanelles and the Strait of Bosporus. The Montreux Convention Regarding the Regime of the Straits :it is a 1936 agreement that gives Turkey control over the Bosporus Straitsand the Dardanelles and regulates the transit of naval warships. The Convention gives Turkey full control over the Straits and guarantees the free passage of civilian vessels in peacetime. It restricts the passage of naval ships not belonging to Black Sea states. The terms of the convention have been the source of controversy over the years, most notably concerning the Soviet Union‘s military access to the Mediterranean Sea. Signed on 20 July 1936 at the Montreux Palace in Switzerland, it permitted Turkey to remilitarise the Straits. It went into effect on 9 November 1936 and was registered in League of Nations Treaty Series on 11 December 1936. It is still in force today, with some amendments.The Convention consists of 29 Articles, four annexes and one protocol. Articles 2–7 consider the passage of merchant ships. Articles 8–22 consider the passage of war vessels. The key principle of freedom of passage and navigation is stated in articles 1 and 2. Article 1 provides that “The High Contracting Parties recognize and affirm the principle of freedom of passage and navigation by sea in the Straits”. Article 2 states that “In time of peace, merchant vessels shall enjoy complete freedom of passage and navigation in the Straits, by day and by night, under any flag with any kind of cargo.” The International Straits Commission was abolished, authorizing the full resumption of Turkish military control over the Straits and the refortification of the Dardanelles. Turkey was authorized to close the Straits to all foreign warships in wartime or when it was threatened by aggression; additionally, it was authorized to refuse transit from merchant ships belonging to countries at war with Turkey.a massive and terrifyingly dangerous development.  Blockading Russia and preventing its Black Sea fleet from traveling to the rest of the world, or back to its home port, is something that will not sit well with the Russians. Earlier today, Russian President  Putin ordered the deployment of 150,000 Russian troops and equipment into Syria, but then also ordered the deployment of 7,000 additional Russian Troops, tanks, rocket launchers and artillery, to the Russian Border of Turkey at Armenia, with orders to be “fully combat ready.” It is important to note two things: 1) Turkey is a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) as is the United States and most of Europe, And; 2) Turkey took the first shot at Russia when they intentionally shot down a Russian jet last week. As a NATO member, Turkey can invoke Article 5 of the NATO Treaty which requires all NATO members to come to its defense if Turkey is “attacked.”  So if Russia decides to fight back against Turkey downing its military jet, the Turks might call NATO and claim they’ve been “attacked” thereby calling-up NATO forces to go to war against Russia. It bears remembering, however, that Turkey shot first. Why did the Turks shoot?  Because Turkey has been allowing the terrorist group isis to sell the oil it has stolen from countries it is conquering. The oil is transported from the wells in countries where isis has seized power, is taken by truck to Turkey, and is then sold at cheap prices on the black market. This black market selling results in over 1 Million dollars per day flowing into isis to keep it equipped and supplied for its ongoing terrorist activities. It would be shocking if NATO were to defend Turkey under such circumstances because by its actions, Turkey is providing material support to the terrorist group isis. For NATO to defend that would make all of us accomplices to terrorism. (Source: InfoWars): http://tinyurl.com/qfabo5a

November 26, 2015   A court ordered two prominent opposition journalists jailed pending trial over charges of willingly aiding an armed group and of espionage for revealing state secrets for their reports on alleged arms smuggling to Syria. The court in Istanbul ruled that Cumhuriyet newspaper's editor-in-chief Dundar, and the paper's Ankara representative, Gul, be taken into custody. In May, the Cumhuriyet paper published what it said were images of Turkish trucks carrying ammunition to Syrian militants. The images reportedly date back to January 2014, when local authorities searched Syria-bound trucks, touching off a standoff with Turkish intelligence officials. Some officials later suggested the trucks were carrying arms or ammunition destined to Turkmen kinsmen in Syria. Gul told reporters that he and Dundar are accused of helping the moderate Islamic movement led by U.S.-based cleric Gulen, a former Erdogan ally who has turned into his No. 1 foe. Government officials accuse Gulen's supporters of stopping the trucks as part of an alleged plot to bring down the government. The government has branded the movement a "terror organization" although it is not known to have been engaged in any acts of violence. (Source: AP): http://tinyurl.com/pf5qxq4

5 11 26   Ettől még nem lett Erdogan azonnal jófiú. A közel-keleti iszlám bezzegdemokrácia megteremtőjeként indult Erdogannak már évek óta borzasztóan rossz az imázsa nyugaton. Ezen pedig nem változtat az a kényszerű NATO-kiállás, amire az orosz gép lelövése kapcsán került sor. Hosszú ugyanis a „bűnlajstrom”: Amerika-szövetséges kurdok bombázása, hézagos sajtószabadság, fura elnöki rendszer. A mérleg másik serpenyőjén viszont ott van a menekültkérdés, a stratégiai földrajzi fekvés Szíria szempontjából – mondta el Egeresi, Törökország-kutató. Még ha egy török-orosz háború nincs is kitörőben, az oroszoknak is van légvédelmük a szír határon, így bármikor viszonozhatják a törökök „gesztusát”. A Nemzeti Közszolgálati Egyetem (NKE) szakértője röviden vázolta a török államfő helyzetét: Erdogan a 2003-as hatalomra kerülése utáni években elég jó, européer imázst alakított ki, pártja, az Igazság és Fejlődés Pártja (AKP) pedig afféle muszlim-konzervatív formációként jelent meg. Az arab tavasz által pozícióba kerülő majdani vezetők számára a Nyugat a török modellt tűzte ki példának. Voltak ugyan kritikus hangok a médiában, de főleg csak a sajtószabadság kapcsán; aztán a 2013-as Gezi parkbéli tüntetések, amelyeket erővel oszlatott fel Ankara, gyökeres fordulatot hoztak. Most Nyugat láthatóan elfogadta a török érvelést, miszerint a légtérsértő orosz gépet jogosan lőtték le, de nem Erdogan személye, hanem a szövetséges Törökország mellett sorakoztak fel. Ki a főellenség? Más kérdés például az Amerika-szövetséges kurd csoportok helyzete, amelyeket Ankara – Aszad szír elnök és az iszlám állam mellett – szintén megszórt bombákkal. Ilyenkor – ahogy Egeresi mondta – Erdoganék a törökországi kurdok egy részének támogatását élvező, Észak-Irakban táborokkal rendelkező Kurdisztáni Munkáspártra (PKK) mutogatnak. A PKK magát forradalmi pártként határozza meg, a világ többi része – beleértve az EU-t és az USA-t is – viszont terrorszervezetként tartja nyilván. Szövetségesük, a Demokratikus Unió Pártja (PYD) szerzett hatalmat Észak-Szíriában, ezt pedig már komoly fenyegetésként értékelik Ankarában. A kurdok száma és területi elhelyezkedése a Közel-Keleten (ahol számuk kb 32 millió fő. Térkép: http://tinyurl.com/ngoj7r5       A labda most az oroszok térfelén pattog – húzta alá Egeresi –, és eddig elsősorban gazdasági retorziókat helyeztek kilátásba, katonairól szó sincs. Törökország gázellátása ötven-hatvan százalékban Moszkvától függ – ami nem mellesleg Putyinéknak is nagy üzlet –, ezért a nyílt háborút mindkét fél kerülni fogja. Medvegyev ugyanakkor három kártyát is felvillantott: jelesül a Török Áramlat, a Roszatom kivitelezésével tervezett akkuyui atomerőmű 2022-es üzembe helyezésének, illetve az Oroszországban befektető török cégek helyzetének kérdéseit. Moszkva mindhárom területen fájdalmasan ráléphet Erdoganék tyúkszemére. A török elnök most a szövetséges szerepében jelenik meg a nyugati médiában,és ha tovább eszkalálódik a helyzet, Törökország pedig a kisebb érdekkonfliktusok ellenére továbbra is nagyjából nyugati szövetségeseivel együtt lép fel, akkor az tényleg javíthatja majd Erdogan imázsát – de a jófiú imázsától még messze van.

November 29, 2015  The rise of liberal intolerance in America. There is no doubt that racial prejudice is alive and well but quashing free speech is no answer.  In the space of a few years gay marriage has been accepted, marijuana has been legalised, America has twice elected its first black president. Today’s mantra is to create “safe spaces”. Campus libraries put “trigger warnings” on works of fiction: students are warned off Ovid’s Metamorphoses because it depicts rape, Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice (anti-semitism), Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby (misogyny) and Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird (patriarchy). The term “microaggression” — giving unconscious verbal offence to marginalised groups — has entered everyday vocabulary. I have lost count of the conversations I have had with faculty heads who admit to censoring their language for fear of giving offence. Their jobs are sometimes at stake. The goal is to eliminate prejudice from the mind. Yet it can have the perverse effect of heightening awareness of race. There is a boom on America’s campuses — and beyond — of what one critic has dubbed the “race therapy complex”. University faculties are bulging with multicultural guidance counsellors, diversity officers and those whose task it is to provide training in racial etiquette. Their job is to detect racial insensitivity. Naturally, some find it where it does not exist. The more such positions are created, the greater the vested interests behind it. As Upton Sinclair said: “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.” What does this mean for the future? Forget about universities. The future has already graduated. Anyone with ambition in US public life has long since learnt the value of self-censorship. A word out of context can ruin your chances of being confirmed by the US Senate. Risk-taking is penalised. Blandness is key to career advancement. Little wonder large swaths of the American public have lost faith in their leaders’ integrity. When a politician speaks, the effect is too often chloroformic. The vacuum that spontaneity once occupied is wide open for others to fill. Next time you wonder why a demagogue like Trump is doing so well, ask why there is such high return to his plain spokenness. Could it be because it is being rooted out of public life?(Source: FinancialTimes): http://tinyurl.com/gkqk9aw

Nov 28, 2015  Did scientists just pick up the first intelligent radio waves from a distant alien planet? The "fast radio bursts" included one "double signal" never heard before and have left astronomers buzzing with excitement over the possibility of it being a message with alien origins. Only 11 of the unidentified transient radio pulses have been recorded before around the world. Regarding the data from the Parkes radio telescope in New South Wales, Australia, Petroff from Swinburne University, in Melbourne, one of the team who discovered the signals, believes the origin could be more remarkable than anything recorded before. The discovery is being compared in significance to the recording of the "Wow signal" - a strong narrowband radio wave found by Jerry Ehman in 1977. That radio burst, picked up by the Big Ear radio telescope of The Ohio State University in the United States, bore all the expected hallmarks of non-terrestrial origin but has not been detected since. The source remains a total mystery. Seemingly similar readings which excited astronomers earlier this year called perytons at the time were later found to be coming from microwave ovens on Earth being prematurely opened in the canteens of observatories where observations were being taken. The double burst FRB (called 121002) had a "clear two-component profile". They say each component is similar to the known population of single component FRBs and are separated by 2.4 milliseconds. They added: “Many of the proposed models to explain FRBs use a single high energy event involving compact objects (such as neutron star mergers) and therefore cannot easily explain a two-component FRB.” (Source: Express): http://tinyurl.com/q3u38yu

Hungary
November 19, 2015  ‘All the terrorists are migrants’. Viktor Orbán on how to protect Europe from terror, save Schengen, and get along with Putin’s Russia. In a wide-ranging 90-minute interview a week after the Paris terrorist attacks, Orbán lays out his prescriptions for Europe’s ailments: An impenetrable external border to boost security and save the Schengen treaty on passport-less travel within the EU; a new EU constitutional convention that strengthens the power of nation states and weakens Brussels; and normalized relations with Russia. NATO and EU countries are “at war” with Islamists in the Middle East and Afghanistan, and, he says, “it’s quite logical” that “enemies” would seek to send fighters with migrants coming into Europe. “All of them present a security threat because we don’t know who they are. If you allow thousands or millions of unidentified persons into your house, the risk of … terrorism will significantly increase.” Muslim migrants who in his words belong to “parallel societies,” holding EU passports but rejecting Western values. Earlier this year, Hungary was widely criticized for building a barbed wire fence along its border with Serbia to stop the waves of new arrivals. For Orbán, Hungary was merely upholding the law of the Union that Greece (“a major problem for us”) failed to do by allowing the migrants to continue north unimpeded. Orbán’s opposition helped torpedo a scheme championed by the European Commission for a mandatory resettlement of migrants across the EU, and flipped the discussion from how best to accommodate the refugees to one of how to stop them from coming at all. For the Hungarian, this year of troubles —  from Greece to migration, from terrorism to possible Brexit —  calls for a wholesale rethink of the EU. The bloc “is only reacting, reacting, crisis after crisis, instead of having a concept.” Asked if the EU will be here in 10 years, he says, “it’s an open question.” In Orbán’s proposed reform of the EU, the balance of powers would tilt back toward nation states and away from leaders in Brussels who have “very much the pro-United States of Europe position,” he says. Although he’s widely seen in Western Europe as a leader who’s turned his back on “liberal democracy” and embraced Russia’s Putin, Orbán insists he wants to save the EU and NATO. “Hungary’s place is [in the] West,” he says. “We criticize them because they are far from perfect, but the starting attitude of the Hungarians to Western institutions is always positive.” Getting up from his seat around a large conference table, Orbán walks over to the books stacked on his desk and shelf. He picks up a tract on Europe he’s reading by Habermas, the German philosopher and proponent of a closer, federal EU. “The most dangerous book,” he calls it. There are essay collections by the founder of the ultra-conservative Catholic Opus Dei movement (Orbán’s a Calvinist) and the Hungarian Nobel laureate in literature, Kertész. He’s reading about the political theory of Islam and another book by a Hungarian writer on the global sexual revolution — “an anti-gender study,” he says, “about how we destroy freedom in the name of freedom.” At 52, Orbán carries a healthy paunch and says his football-playing days are mostly behind him. He puts on a tie and jacket for a photographer, then quickly dispenses with both. In his part of the world, he says, leaders are more laid-back. He speaks fluidly in English and cracks jokes. Liberalism in Europe now concentrates not on freedom but on political correctness. It became a sclerotic ideology. Dogmatic, may I say. There is an oft-noted irony that this pro-democracy dissident of the late 1980s, who co-founded the Fidesz student-led movement and helped bring down communism, is seen in the second half of his nearly three-decade run in Hungarian politics as a threat to its democracy. Addressing doubts about his democratic bona fides, Orbán says he has been in parliamentary opposition longer — a dozen years — than in power, and expects to “lose again” in future elections. In a widely circulated speech to ethnic Hungarians  in Romania last year, he announced his desire to build “an illiberal new state based on national foundations,” and argued that “liberal democracy can’t stay competitive.”  When another party picked up the urban, youth electorate that Fidesz had courted, he went to find votes on the traditional right and outside Budapest, in religious, rural areas. His former liberal friends call the shifting shapes of Orbán opportunistic and cynical. He says he’s right where he belongs, with the “national-Christian-civic political family.” People call him a populist. “Because I am,” he retorts. “The problem is nobody knows what [that] means. It does not sound bad in Hungarian ears. Being a populist means that you try to serve the people. It’s positive.” Support for his Fidesz party has grown from 40 percent last December to almost 50 percent today, according to polls. The other notable irony of the modern Orbán is his relationship with Putin. He fought to bring down the Soviet empire and remove Russian troops from Hungarian soil. Putin, a KGB officer who was a cog in the Soviet system that Orbán battled, is now seeking to restore Russian power. These days, Orbán opposes EU sanctions on Russia over its incursions into Ukraine, though Hungary has signed off on them since last year. He nurtures close business ties with Moscow, particularly in energy. And the point is very clear, without the Russians it’s impossible to manage rightly the future of the Hungarians. So we have to have a good balanced relationship with the Russians.” European and Russian principles are “impossible to harmonize. So put aside principles, ideologies and look at the interest, and find the common sense realpolitik agreements. That’s the Hungarian approach.”  While Orbán notes that Hungary’s closest ally in Europe, Poland, backs sanctions, he says he finds more than a little hypocrisy coming from Berlin. Germans “like to appear as opposing” him on sanctions on Russia, he says, “but in fact they are doing even more than we are” to work with Russia. Orbán points to Berlin’s support for a second gas pipeline from Russia to Germany under the Baltic, which will deprive Ukraine of billions in yearly transit fees. “Hungarians are easygoing guys in the European Union,” Orbán says, laughing. “What we are doing, we are saying — and what we are doing is exactly what we are thinking. So it’s not complicated.” Orbán says the Russia relationship helps him balance a testy one with Berlin: “We would not like to depend on the Germans.” (Source: Politico): http://tinyurl.com/pd6llw3

12 November 2015  The tide of migrants coming to Europe from the Middle East and Africa may be part of a left-wing plot to pack the continent with sympathetic voters, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has told a Swiss magazine. Orbán's anti-immigrant rhetoric and the border fences he has erected to block the wave of people fleeing war and poverty have made him a winner at home from a crisis that has divided Europe. "I am not brave enough to speak about this in public with certainty, but you cannot get around imagining that some kind of master plan is behind this," he said in an interview with Die Weltwoche.He cited essays by "the European left  and radical American democrats" that envision the emergence of a European super state to the detriment of traditional nation-states. Future leftist voters are being imported to Europe," he said. The U.S. ambassador to Budapest has warned against "xenophobic characterization of refugees".

Tuesday, 17 Nov 2015  Hollande calls on Russia and US to unite to defeat islamic state. French president gathered his politicians in Paris to declare war on isil, as Obama insisted that if there were an easy option, they would have done it. Hollande has used a highly-unusual address to both French parliaments to call on Russia and America to “unite our forces” in a coalition to destroy isil, three days after Islamists killed 129 in France's worst ever terror attacks. Shortly before he spoke yesterday, fighters from the islamic state of Iraq and the Levant (isil) released a video promising to repeat the Paris terror attack in Washington. Mr Hollande, proposing extending France’s state of emergency for three months, told the politicians gathered at Versailles: “France is at war.” In a sombre speech, ending in a rousing standing ovation, Mr Hollande said he would call on the UN Security Council to pass a new resolution to “destroy daech (isil)”, describing Syria as “the biggest terrorist factory the world has ever seen”. He said he would meet US President Obama and Putin, the Russian leader, in the coming days to urge them to join forces in a “wide and single coalition” against isil, saying that the international community had been “divided and incoherent” for too long. Mr Hollande said that France’s Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier would leave for the area on Thursday to “triple our action capabilities” and that more airstrikes – like those on Sunday that hit Raqqa - would be launched “in the coming weeks”. The French defence ministry said 12 Rafale and Mirage jets based in the region dropped 20 bombs, including on the jihadists’ de facto capital Raqqa. It claimed they had destroyed a training camp and munitions dump, among other targets. The raid was the largest attack by the French since they joined the US-led coalition in Syria in September, after previously restricting themselves - like the RAF - to Iraq. Mr Obama, speaking at the G20 in Turkey in a speech which coincided with Mr Hollande’s address, insisted that America was not shying away from tackling isil, and angrily hit back at critics who accused him of inaction. He said that America could send in 50,000 troops to wipe out the murderous regime, but that  would only provide a short-term solution. “We can retake territory. And as long as we leave our troops there, we can hold it,” he said. “But that does not solve the underlying problem of eliminating the dynamics that are producing these kinds of violent extremist groups.”  Repeatedly stressed that defeating isil would take time, and rejected accusations that he was dithering. “If there was a swift and quick solution to this, I assure you that not just the United States, but France and Turkey and others who have been subject to these terrorist attacks would have implemented those strategies,” he said, adding that America’s weakening of al Qaeda was proof that he was not sitting back and letting jihadists roam free. Mr Obama used his speech to call on other nations to do more in the coalition against isil. But he did not specifically address Russia, which has positioned itself on the other side to America. Mr Hollande, by contrast, was one of several leaders who suggested they were open to working more  closely with Russia against isil. Mr Putin met Mr Obama on Sunday and Cameron on Monday morning, on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Turkey. Mr Putin, who has been heavily criticised for concentrating Russia’s aerial bombardment in Syria on non-isil rebels, said a closer coalition was “indispensable”. "I spoke about this at the United Nations,” he said. “The tragic events that followed have confirmed that we were right."  (Source: TheTelegraph): http://tinyurl.com/nskyhr5

18-19 November 2015  What is the driving force behind jihadist terrorism? Radicalisation is a youth revolt against society, articulated on an Islamic religious narrative of jihad. It is not the uprising of a Muslim community victim of poverty and racism: only young people join, including converts who did not share the “sufferings” of Muslims in Europe. These rebels without a cause find in jihad a “noble” and global cause, and are consequently instrument alised by a radical organisation (Al Qaeda, isis), that has a strategic agenda. There are no psychiatric specific patterns for radicals. The majority of the radicals come from second generation Muslims born in Europe, the others are converts; almost none came as a young adult or as a teenager to Europe from the Middle East. Many have a past of petty delinquency and drug dealing. It is clearly a youth movement: almost all of them radicalised to the dismay of their parents and relatives. Very few of them had a previous story of militancy, either political (pro-Palestinian movements) or religious (local mosques, Tabligh, Muslim Brothers or even main stream Salafism). The unusual proportion of converts has been systematically overlooked because it contradicts the (culturalist) idea that individual radicalisation reflects a radicalisation of a frustrated Muslim community. A more recent pattern is the recruitment of young women to marry “jihadists”, instead of sharing common militancy as their predecessors. The rate of converts among this category is probably the highest among all categories of recruits. The main motivation of young men for joining jihad seems to be the fascination for a narrative: “the small brotherhood of super-heroes who avenge the Muslim Ummah”: - This ummah is global and abstract, never identified with a national cause (Palestine, or even the Syrian or Iraqi nations). The religious dimension: the revolt is expressed in religious terms for two reasons:  - Most of the radicals have a Muslim background, which makes them open to a process of re-islamisation (almost none of them being pious before entering the process of radicalisation). Jihad is the only cause on the global market. If you kill in silence, it will be reported by the local newspaper; if you kill yelling  “Allahuakbar”, you are sure to make the national headlines. When they join jihad, they adopt the Salafi version of Islam, because Salafism is both simple to understand (don’ts and do’s), and rigid, providing a personal psychological structuring effect. Moreover, Salafism is the negation of cultural Islam, that is the Islam of their parents and of their roots. Instead of providing them with roots, Salafism glorifies their own deculturation and makes them feel better “Muslims” than their parents. Salafism is the religion by definition of a disenfranchised youngster. Radicals have a loose or no connection with the Muslim communities in Europe. Few of them were regular “parishers” in a local mosque. None of them was active in religious activities (proselytism): when they preach Islam it is to recruit other radicals, not to spread the good news. This explains why 1) the close monitoring of mosques brings little information; 2) Imams have little or no influence on the process of radicalisation; 3) “reforming Islam” does not make sense: they just don’t care about “what Islam really means”. “Religiosity” not theology is the key. Consequence for fighting radicalization: to promote a “moderate Islam” to bring radicals back to the mainstream is nonsense. They just reject moderation as such. To ask the “Muslim community” to bring radicals back to normal life is also nonsense. Radicals just don’t care about people they consider as “traitors”, “apostates” or “collaborators” as long as they don’t choose the same path. To consider Islam only through the lenses of “fighting terrorism” will validate the narrative of persecution and revenge that feeds the process of radicalisation. The priority, beyond building a more sophisticated intelligence system, is to debunk the narrative of heroism, to break the “success story” of isis as being invincible (including on the ground) and to let Islam in Europe appear as a “normal” religion. The aim is to accentuate the estrangement of radicals from the Muslim population and to dry up the narrative of Islam as the religion of the oppressed.

November 17, 2015 Paris terror uniting East Europe Against Merkel's refugee plan. Bulgarian diplomat calls talks over EU migrant quotas `absurd'. Polish minister rejects German pressure, cites Nazi past. The EU is increasingly split along east-west lines over how to deal with the immigration crisis as the European Commission estimates 3 million asylum seekers may be heading toward the bloc by 2017. A group of formerly communist countries led by Hungary, one of the nations most affected by the flood of migrants, have opposed German-led efforts to introduce a quota system to settle them, drawing criticism that the recipients of billions of euros in aid from the west aren’t willing to help their richer neighbors. Merkel, who allowed an estimated 1 million asylum seekers into Germany this year, seeks to relocate those fleeing war and civil strife in the Middle East and North Africa across the 28-nation EU. The plan is straining her ties with countries such as Poland and the Baltic nations, which count on German backing for continued sanctions on Russia following President Putin’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula in 2014. Poland’s Interior Minister Blaszczak, of the Law & Justice party that won last month’s election after promising to take the country out of the “EU mainstream,” recalled the Nazi’s destruction of Warsaw during World War II when asked about German politicians’ comments suggesting  Poland should show more solidarity in trying to resolve the migrant crisis. “This is another example of German arrogance,” Blaszczak told TVN24. “We are in Warsaw, which was destroyed by Germans agents, who murdered 50,000 people, including women and children” during a raid on its Wola district in 1944, he said.

Saudi Arabia
November 20, 2015  Saudi Arabia, an isis that has made it. The islamic state; Saudi Arabia. In its struggle against terrorism, the West wages war on one, but shakes hands with the other. This is a mechanism of denial, and denial has a price: preserving the famous strategic alliance with Saudi Arabia at the risk of forgetting that the kingdom also relies on an alliance with a religious clergy that produces, legitimizes, spreads, preaches and defends Wahhabism, the ultra-puritanical form of Islam that daesh feeds on. Wahhabism, a messianic radicalism that arose in the 18th century, hopes to restore a fantasized caliphate centered on a desert, a sacred book, and two holy sites, Mecca and Medina. Born in massacre and blood, it manifests itself in a surreal relationship with women, a prohibition against non-Muslims treading on sacred territory, and ferocious religious laws. That translates into an obsessive hatred of imagery and representation and therefore art, but also of the body, nakedness and freedom. Saudi Arabia is a daesh that has made it. The West’s denial regarding Saudi Arabia is striking: It salutes the theocracy as its ally but pretends not to notice that it is the world’s chief ideological sponsor of Islamist culture. The younger generations of radicals in the so-called Arab world were not born jihadists. They were suckled in the bosom of Fatwa Valley, a kind of Islamist Vatican with a vast industry that produces theologians, religious laws, books, and aggressive editorial policies and media campaigns. One might counter: isn’t Saudi Arabia itself a possible target of daesh? Yes, but to focus on that would be to overlook the strength of the ties between the reigning family and the clergy that accounts for its stability — and also, increasingly, for its precariousness. The Saudi royals are caught in a perfect trap: weakened by succession laws that encourage turnover, they cling to ancestral ties between king and preacher. The Saudi clergy produces Islamism, which both threatens the country and gives legitimacy to the regime. daesh has a mother: the invasion of Iraq. But it also has a father: Saudi Arabia and its religious-industrial complex. Until that point is understood, battles may be won, but the war will be lost. Jihadists will be killed, only to be reborn again in future generations and raised on the same books. (Source: The NewYorkTimes): http://tinyurl.com/pwjgfec

12 Nov 2015   Putin's media Svengali who was found dead in DC hotel was 'murdered for being an FBI informant' - or could even still be alive, claim Russians. Millionaire Lesin, 57, was found dead in $240-a-night in Washington DC last Friday and police are investigating. The pro-Putin 'propaganda channel' he set up, RT, claimed he 'had been suffering from a prolonged unidentified illness'. But DC police have made no such finding and now speculation is mounting in Russia that he was murdered because he had turned FBI informer. Known as 'the Bulldozer' he was key to media falling into line with Putin, for getting the media to dance to Putin's tune. He  had recently found new love and become father with Siberian model, 29. He was a Svengali figure for Putin, who was alleged to have menaced the Russian media into idolizing the strongman president. Lesin was Putin's press secretary during his first stint as president, from 1999 to 2004, before becoming an adviser to the president between 2004 to 2009, founded state television network Russia Today, regarded in the West as a mouthpiece for the Kremlin  He also set up Russia Today, now RT, seen by critics as a 'propaganda' channel aimed at the West. But earlier this year, after the break-up of his marriage, and in a new relationship with his Siberian lover who he may have wed - she referred to him as her 'husband' - he suddenly quit the latest of several high profile positions, as head of Gazprom Media, a major state owned media conglomerate The idea for Russia Today (RT) was conceived by Lesin as the Russian government sought to improve the public image of the country. Before its conception in 2005, the head of the RIA Novosti news agency  Mironyuk said Russia was only known for 'communism, snow and poverty'. Some would argue RT has done little to change that, with most of the West seeing the state-funded television network as a  media arm for the Kremlin and Putin. During the conflict between Russia and Georgia in 2008, RT named Georgia as the aggressor, despite Russia invading parts of Georgia, which had merely defended itself against attack from the separatist governments of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. The channel caused consternation in the US in 2010 when it released controversial adverts showing President Obama merging into Iranian president Ahmadinejad. It was captioned 'Who poses the greatest nuclear threat?' and subsequently banned in US airports, while a similar advert showing a soldier merging into a Taliban fighter causing similar uproar. In 2012 RT's website was hacked by a group called Antileaks, believed to be because of Wikileaks chief Assange backing of the channel or because of the jailing of protest group Pussy Riot. Secretary of State Kerry has referred to Russia Today, often shortened to RT, as a 'propaganda bullhorn'. Following the crisis in Ukraine, Kerry said: 'Russia Today network has deployed to promote president Putin's fantasy about what is playing out on the ground. 'They almost spend full-time devoted to this effort, to propagandize, and to distort what is happening or not happening in Ukraine.'  Even  Putin has admitted RT is biased, saying: 'Certainly the channel is funded by the government, so it cannot help but reflect the Russian government's official position on the events in our country and in the rest of the world one way or another. 'But I’d like to underline again that we never intended this channel, RT, as any kind of apologetics for the Russian political line, whether domestic or foreign.' Lesin was found dead at 11:30am on November 6 while staying on an upper floor at the $240-a-night Dupont Circle Hotel, seen as modest for his multimillionaire lifestyle. Lesin's company the Dastel Corporation bought a 13,000 sq ft Beverly Hills home in August 2011 for $13.8 million and a 10,600 square foot property in Brentwood for $9 million in 2012, it was reported. 'For over a year he was living under FBI scrutiny and a total check on his assets. (Source. DailyMail): http://tinyurl.com/p4hw4hm

Solar activity was low. No Earth-directed coronal mass ejections (CME) were observed.
SPACE:
For the majority of the day the phi angle was positive (away from Sun),
until approximately 19:40 UT when it rotated into the negative (towards the Sun) sector, where it remained for the rest.
Solar wind speeds were relatively steady between 360-380 km/s. The Bz component of the interplanetary magnetic field was variable but predominantly in a southward orientation.
EARTH:
Today the geomagnetic field was at quiet to unsettled levels 
Prediction for 18 November:
EARTH:
tomorrow, around noon: a minor glancing blow or shock arrival from the 16/01:14 UT  CME can be expected, when a combination of a negative polarity coronal hole high speed stream and the anticipated arrival of the 16 November CME will enhance solar wind conditions with possibly active geomagnetic conditions or minor geomagnetic storms. (The double filament eruption of late 15 November produced a double CME towards the South West).

Globalization
Oct 31, 2015  A mass migration crisis, and it may yet get worse. What if islamic state militants are not beaten back but continue to extend their brutal writ across Iraq and Syria? What if the taliban continue to increase their territorial gains in Afghanistan, prompting even more people to flee? A quarter of Afghans told a Gallup Poll that they want to leave.There are between six million and eight million people displaced in Syria, along with more than four million Syrian refugees in Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan. Egypt’s five million or more Copts, the Middle East’s last remaining major Christian sect, are deeply worried about their future in an unstable and hostile country. Ancient minority groups like the Yazidis of Iraq are already homeless, as are many small communities of Assyrian, Nestorian and Chaldean Christians from northern Iraq. While Yemenis have yet to abandon their homeland in substantial numbers, their plight is worsening daily amid wartime shortages of food and medicine and persistent bombardment by Saudi warplanes. Yemen is not much farther away from Europe than Eritrea, now the biggest source of African refugees, just across the Red Sea, and at some 25 million it is as populous as Afghanistan. In Nigeria, which already has double the population of Germany, 40 percent of people would emigrate to the West if they could. And the lesson of 2015 — for them and much of the world — is that they can. “We are talking about millions of potential refugees trying to reach Europe, not thousands,” - Tusk, the president of the European Council, said in a recent Twitter posting. In the Middle East and Africa, borders drawn by Ottoman dynasts and European colonialists are breaking down as the autocratic Arab states that enforced a grim peace for generations continue to implode. As traditional lines of authority break down, militant groups like the islamic state and Boko Haram, in Nigeria, seek to fill the vacuum while minority sects and ethnic groups suffer unspeakable treatment at their hands. Climate change, too, is roiling societies across the Middle East and Africa. Syria was in the grip of a prolonged drought when war broke out, and large areas of sub-Saharan Africa are becoming uninhabitable. With rising sea levels, a single typhoon in the Bay of Bengal could drive millions of Bangladeshis from their homes in low-lying coastal areas and render that land uninhabitable, too. Many migrants are from countries where the West has tried to intervene and failed spectacularly — Iraq and Afghanistan, in particular. There are now some two million Iraqi refugees, many bound for Europe. Libya represents another failed intervention, by the French and British, with American support. The chaos in their country has made it easier than ever before for other African migrants to flee to Europe through northern Africa. Others come from places like Eritrea, where young men are fleeing a brutal dictatorship that offers them the prospect of a lifetime of unpaid military service, and little else. Some are escaping civil war in the Democratic Republic of Congo or poverty in nations like Gambia or Senegal. Many, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, are motivated by elemental problems like spreading desertification. Others are looking for economic opportunity.

The magnetic field in and around earth. The intensity of the magnetic field at the earth's surface is approximately 31 000 nT (0.31 gauss) at the equator and 62 000 nT (0.62 gauss) at the north pole. Its short-term disturbances are the geomagnetic activities.

Geomagnetic storm: A worldwide disturbance of the earth's magnetic field, distinct from regular diurnal variations. A storm occurs when the Ap > 29, a minor storm when 29 < Ap < 50, a major storm when 50 <= Ap < 100 and a severe storm when Ap >= 100.

10 MeV = 10 million eV. The eV (electron volt) is a very tiny amount of energy corresponding to about 0.16 billionth of a billionth of a Joule. For comparison, a flying mosquito has a kinetic energy of
about a trillion eV (= 1000 billion eV).

ap index: A mean, 3-hourly "equivalent amplitude" of magnetic activity based on K index data from a planetary of 11 Northern and 2 Southern Hemisphere magnetic observatories between the geomagnetic latitudes of 46 and 63 degrees. ap values are given in units of 2 nT.

Bt: total magnetic field strength

Bz: the north-south direction of the interplanetary magnetic field

CH HSS: coronal hole high speed stream

CIR: co-rotating interaction region

geomagnetic storms: classification according to NOAA scale: http://tinyurl.com/lcepo4z

Kp index: A 3-hourly planetary index of geomagnetic activity calculated by the Institut fur Geophysik der Gottingen Universitat, Germany, from the K indices observed at 13 stations primarily in the Northern Hemisphere.

NOAA Space Weather Scales (for three event types: geomagnetic storms, radio blackouts and solar radiation storms: http://tinyurl.com/lcepo4z

pfu: proton flux unit. This is the number of particles registered per second, per square cm, and per steradian.

proton events classification according to NOAA scale R1-R5 of radio blackouts: http://tinyurl.com/lcepo4z
 
Reconnection: A plasma process by which differently directed field lines link up, allowing topological changes of the magnetic field to occur, determining patterns of plasma flow, and resulting in conversion of magnetic energy to kinetic and thermal energy of plasma. Reconnection is invoked to explain the energization and acceleration of the plasmas that are observed in coronal mass ejections, magnetic substorms, and elsewhere in the solar system.

solar radiation storms: classification according to NOAA scale: http://tinyurl.com/lcepo4z

Solar wind: The outward flow of solar particles and magnetic fields from sun. Typically at 1 AU, solar wind velocities are near 450 km/s and proton and electron densities are near 5 cm^-3. The total intensity of the interplanetary magnetic field is nominally 5 nT. The fast solar wind originates from coronal holes and the slow wind is assumed to originate from regions near the coronal neutral line.

Sector boundary: Area between sectors, which are large-scale features distinguished by the predominant direction of the interplanetary magnetic field, toward the sun (a negative sector), or away from the sun (a positive sector). The sector boundary separating fields of opposite polarity is normally narrow, passing the earth within minutes to hours as opposed to the week or so needed for passage of a typical sector.
 
Solar activity: Five terms are often used to describe the activity (see x-ray solar flare class).
Very low ---- x-ray events less than C-solar flare class.
Low ---- C-class x-ray events.
Moderate ---- isolated (one to 4) M-solar flare class x-ray events.
High ---- several (5 or more) M-class x-ray events, or isolated (one to 4) M5 or greater x-ray events.
Very high ---- several (5 or more) M5 or greater x-ray events.
 
X-ray solar flare class: Rank of a flare based on its x-ray energy output.
Class ----- Peak burst intensity (I) measured at the Earth in the 0.1-0.8 nm band (W m^-2)
B ----- I< 10^-6
C ----- 10^-6 <= I < 10^-5
M ----- 10^-5 <= I < 10^-4
X ----- I > = 10^-4

until around 17:00  UT: the phi angle was steady in a positive (away from the Sun) solar sector orientation; after it became variable.
The solar wind was between 450 and 500 km/s. It has gradually increased; this is associated with the waning effects of the 04 Nov CME triggered by the M3.7 flare and the approaching very wide, recurrent positive northern hemisphere coronal hole. IMF Bz has been mainly oriented southwards for at least 10 hrs of the day. The total magnetic field has slightly decreased from around 10 nT to around 5 nT, and the Bz component has been largely negative. The Bz was mainly around -5 nT.

 

2015/11/04

From 03:00 UT till noon
Bz was mostly negative.
EARTH:   
From 00:00 till 15:00 UT the planetary K index ranged G1-class (minor) geomagnetic storming (Kp = 5).
On the evening
aurora sightings are likely from Southern Australian regions, possibly extending at times to Central regions (forcast from November 3).
SUN:
03:26 UT: an impulsive M1.9-class flare was peaking, associated with a non Earth-directed coronal mass ejection and a Type II radio sweep (estimated shock speed 790 km/s and a 220 sfu Tn flare). This flare's source: sunspot region number 2245.

2015/11/03

SPACE:
From around midnight till 07:30 UT a gradual increase was observed from 300 to 400 km/s in solar wind speed, coinciding with particle densities up to 100/cm3 and increasing temperatures. The 4th Proton event so far this year. The source of this event was an eruption on the solar backside, slightly beyond the southwest solar limb as seen from Earth, on 29 October probably between 02:30 - 03:00 UT.
at 02:36 UT the complex coronal mass ejection (CME) associated with this event was first visible in LASCO/C2 coronagraphic imagery. It had no earth-directed component.
EARTH:
During the early hours,
auroras were sighted in the USA in Michigan, Wisconsin, Montana, and even Ohio.
On the evening aurora sightings are likely  from Southern Australian regions, possibly extending at times to Central regions.
SPACE
05:30 UT: the total magnetic field strength (Bt) jumped from 4 nT to 22 nT, the north-south direction of the interplanetary magnetic field (Bz) dropped from -5 nT to -24 nT, solar wind speeds began to increase to near 700 km/s and have remained steady near 665 km/s. These enhancements appear to be a reflection of the anticipated co-rotating interaction region (CIR) ahead of the expected coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS). Bt reached a peak of 37 nT while Bz saw a maximum southward deflection to -24 nT.
EARTH
06:00-12:00 UT interval: minor geomagnetic storming has been observed (Kp = 5)
SPACE:
Around 07:30 UT
solar wind speed  jumped to 550 km/s.
Until about 08:00 UT Bz oscillated wildly between -25 and + 27 nT. This probably corresponds to the passing of the co-rotating interaction region.
Around 11:00 UT solar wind speed jumped again from 550 to 700 km/s, indicating the arrival of the high speed stream (HSS) from the equatorial coronal hole (CH). Solar wind density quickly decreased and Bz stayed mostly positive between 0 and +20 nT (declining). Minor to severe geomagnetic storming (K ranging from 5 to 7) is expected in response to the HSS of the CH.
around 15:00 UT a high-speed stream of solar wind has reached Earth and is buffeting our planet's magnetic field. So far, however, there have been no strong geomagnetic storms. Magnetic fields inside the solar wind stream are not well-connected to Earth's magnetic field, and that mismatch is mitigating the impact.
EARTH:
18:00-21:00 UT: minor geomagnetic storming (Kp = 5)
SPACE:

From 17:00 UT till midnight Bz was mostly negative.
From 18:30 UT to midnight solar wind speeds were increasing to over 700 km/s.
Today the Bz component of interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) ranged between -25 to +27 nT and Bt was between 3-40 nT. If the IMF Bz turns strongly southward for prolonged periods, minor to severe geomagnetic storms could occur.
SUN:
Sunspot region number 2244 is huge; from end to end it measures almost 200,000 km.
EARTH:
21:25 UT: M5.7 quake occured at a distance of 69 km west-north-west from Dili, East Timor; 81 km north of Atambua, Indonesia. See also: Java Region.

EARTH:
Kilauea volcano, Hawaii, USA (summit elevation: 1247 m): lava lake still present at Kīlauea's summit; the lava lake level is roughly 70 m below the Overlook crater rim. Continued eruption at Puʻu ʻŌʻō.
03:04 UT: an M 5.6 quake occured at a distance of 358 km south-east of Lambasa, Fiji, 396 km east of Suva, Fiji. See also: Fiji region.
08:15 UT: an M5.9 quake occured at 80km south-east of Atka, Alaska, the USA; 1549 km south-southeast of Anadyr', Russia; 2541 km west of Whitehorse, Canada.
SUN:
at midday: a monster spot on the sun, sunspot region number 2443 has more than quadrupled in size since it first appeared on Oct. 29th. It now stretches more than 175,000 km from end to end, and has more than a dozen dark cores, many of which are as large as terrestrial continents - and a couple as large as Earth itself. The sunspot's magnetic field has simplified a little, but the spotty complex still has a 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbors energy for strong M-class solar flares. Any such explosions will be geoeffective as the sunspot turns squarely toward Earth in the days ahead.
SPACE:
Solar wind speeds could exceed 800 km/s and spark a strong G3-class geomagnetic storm.
EARTH:
90% chance of geomagnetic storms on Nov. 2nd-3rd when a fast-moving stream of solar wind is expected to hit Earth's magnetic field.
SUN:
21:17 UT. An impressive CME was observed originated from behind the west limb. It does not appear to have an Earth-directed component. A recurrent, large equatorial coronal hole is taking a geoeffective position on the solar disk. Its size is slightly smaller compared to the previous rotation.
EARTH:
The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled.
At about 22:14 UT total magnetic field strength (Bt) reflected a pronounced jump from around 3 nT to 10 nT.
SPACE:
After 22:14 UT (within minutes) solar wind speed's increase in from around 320 km/s to about 410 km/s, as well as an increase in density.
Today the solar winds fluctuated between 300 and 360 km/s. They are expected to elevate at some time due to the anticipated arrival of high speed streams emanating from the recurrent coronal hole.
SUN:
Sunspot region number 2443 positioned directly earth facing.
Forecast for November 3-4, 2015:
EARTH:
On the evening  aurora sightings are likely from Southern Australian regions, possibly extending at times to Central regions.

SUN:: solar activity was low to moderate with sunspot region number 2443 which maintains its complex beta-gamma-delta configuration producing several high level C class flares. No Earth directed CME's were recorded. Growing sunspot AR2443 has a 'beta-gamma-delta' magnetic field that harbors energy for X-class solar flares.
SPACE:
Solar wind:speed was in the 330-380 km/s range. The magnetic field phi angle was stable in the negative sector. Geomagnetic conditions were quiet to unsettled. Solar wind conditions are expected to increase afterwards with the expected arrival of a recurrent equatorial coronal hole high speed stream. In the previous rotation this coronal hole caused solar wind speeds of over 800 km/s and associated major geomagnetic storms.

Nov 5, 2015  Mass immigration is on the verge of destroying Europe, Dressing up their vandalism as compassion and their cowardice as moral superiority, these leaders have created an immigration crisis so profound that the very existence of our European culture and heritage is under mortal threat. The tragic paradox of the obsession with free movement and the abolition of national identities is that Europe in any meaningful sense will probably cease to exist this century. As the social revolution accelerates traditional values of democracy, freedom and solidarity will be replaced by conflict, sectarianism, oppression and intolerance. Increasingly Islamified, barbaric and poverty-stricken, Europe will become indistinguishable from large swathes of North Africa and the Middle East. Several millennia were required to build European civilisation but its impending destruction has been the work of just a few years, carried out by a cadre of irresponsible, unpatriotic and deluded politicians led by German Chancellor Angela Merkel Even the stupendously high levels of mass immigration over the past two decades are now dwarfed by the colossal flood of new arrivals that has occurred since the early summer when Merkel made her woefully illconceived pledge that ­Germany would welcome anyone claiming to be a refugee. She may have thought that the open-door policy would provide a counter to Germany’s appalling record of aggression since the 1860s but in reality by wrecking Europe’s social fabric she has added to the long catalogue of Teutonic crimes. It is thanks mainly to her that so many African, Asian and Middle-Eastern migrants are coming to our shores. In October alone a record 218,000 of them crossed the Mediterranean, more than the entire total for 2014. Absurdly some metropolitan elitists complain that Britain has failed to join in this demographic upheaval since our Government has said that we will only take 20,000 refugees from Syria over the next five years. This ignores the crucial fact that the current annual immigration rate is officially more than 630,000-a-year, with most of the new settlers hailing from outside the EU. How many more are Britain and Europe expected to take? The potential influx is almost limitless. The United Nations says that globally there are at least 60million people classified as refugees while more than 1.2billion live in dire poverty. But the numbers are already proving catastrophic. It is clear that Europe is now unable to cope. The Greek island of Lesbos has run out of burial space, while tiny Slovenia has 13,000 migrants passing through its borders every day, also setting fire to tents. Even Germany is struggling. There have been mass brawls at several migrant reception centres and in a chilling echo of the country’s totalitarian past the German authorities are seizing property to provide accommodation for the arrivals. As winter approaches and the weather worsens the migrant crisis is set to escalate. A new wave of sentimentality will be unleashed by much of the media, peddling manipulative images of the suffering of the refugees. Eager to parade their humanitarian credentials politicians will open the doors even further and impose even greater burdens on European taxpayers. So the cycle of decline will gather momentum. None of us ever voted for our demise. But without any democratic mandate that is what the politicians have inflicted. One nurse in Germany, who is being evicted from her Nieheim flat so it can be used for migrants, told a reporter last month: “I find it impossible to understand how the city can treat me like this.” Her experience could be a metaphor for the peoples of Europe. The scale of this political treachery is almost incomprehensible. (Source: Express): http://tinyurl.com/nt64rgg

November 2, 2015  CBS News' national security correspondent Martin reports a U.S. infrared satellite detected a heat flash over the Sinai at the time the Russian plane went down. The data is still being analyzed in an effort to determine what caused the flash. One possibility is a bomb, but an explosion in a fuel tank or engine as the result of a mechanical failure is also possible. Some aviation experts raised the possibility that a bomb on board the Metrojet Airbus A321-200 brought it down, while others cited an incident in 2001 when the aircraft grazed the runway with its tail while landing.

Nov 1, 2015  Russian jet broke up at high altitude over Egypt. The Russian jetliner that crashed shortly after takeoff from an Egyptian resort city broke up at high altitude, scattering fragments of wreckage over a wide area in the Sinai Peninsula, Russia's top aviation official said Sunday as search teams raced to recover the bodies of the 224 people who died. The Metrojet Airbus A321-200 plummeted abruptly from 31,000 feet just 23 minutes after it departed from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh bound for St. Petersburg.  An Egyptian official had previously said that before the plane lost contact with air traffic controllers, the pilot radioed that the aircraft was experiencing technical problems and that he intended to try to land at the nearest airport. A local affiliate of the extremist islamic state group claimed it brought down the aircraft, which crashed in the same general area of northern Sinai where the Egyptian military and security forces have battled militants for years. The claim, in a statement posted on social media, provided no supporting evidence. The militants are not known to be capable of downing an aircraft at cruising altitude, although there have been persistent media reports that they have acquired Russian shoulder-fired, anti-aircraft missiles that are effective against low-flying warplanes or helicopters.

02 Nov 2015  Lybia warns it could flood Europe with "hundreds of thousands" of extra migrants if EU does not recognise new self-declared government. Breakaway government in Tripoli issues veiled threat in response to West's refusal to accept their legitimacy. Officials say they could hire boats to send large numbers of African migrants across the Mediterranean. The warning was made by a spokesman for Libya's General National Congress in an interview with The Telegraph in the Libyan capital, Tripoli. The Congress took control of Tripoli last year after fighting against forces loyal to the internationally- recognised House of Representatives government.  Zubia, the Congress's foreign media spokesman, told The Telegraph that Libya was currently spending tens of millions of pounds a year stopping migrants from crossing the Mediterranean, through the use of detention centres and repatriation programs. He said that if Europe continued to refuse to recognise the Congress's authority, the Libyan government could reverse the policy. Last year alone, an estimated 170,000 migrants arrived by boat from Libya in Italy. Between January and September this year the figure was 130,000. The Libyan government's Department for Combating Illegal Immigration employs around 8,000 staff and detains large numbers of migrants for entering the country illegally, as well as working with the International Organisation for Migration on voluntary repatriation programmes. Libya spend around £80m a year on the issue. The Congress is the political wing of the Libya Dawn coalition, a range of both moderate and more radical Islamist fighting groups that were involved in Col Gaddafi's overthrow. A rival government, known as the House of Representatives, now operates out of the small eastern city of Tobruk and has no effective control over Tripoli, despite being internationally recognised.  (Source: The Telegraph): http://tinyurl.com/pcfhew6

Oct 28, 2015 Abbott, ousted Australian leader, urges Europe to take hard line on migrants  warning in London that the continent risked “fundamentally weakening itself” through “misguided altruism” as large numbers of asylum seekers arrive. Mr. Abbott backed an aggressive policy on migration during his two years in office. The Australian authorities turned away boats and refused to accept asylum seekers intercepted at sea, instead sending them to offshore camps. Prime Minister Turnbull, who replaced Mr. Abbott in September in a party coup, has announced no change to those policies. Mr. Abbott recommended the same approach for Europe. “This means turning boats around, for people coming by sea,” he said. “It means denying entry at the border, for people with no legal right to come. And it means establishing camps for people who currently have nowhere to go.”More than 600 people are still being detained on the small Pacific island nation of Nauru, and more than 900 remain in a camp on Manus Island in Papua New Guinea. As public criticism of the camps has increased, the Australian government has tried with little success to resettle asylum seekers in third countries. After just four people were sent to Cambodia under a $29 million agreement reached last year, Australia said this month that it was in talks with the Philippines.His remarks came hours after the president of the Philippines, one of several countries where Australia has hoped to send asylum seekers, said the country would not accept them for permanent resettlement. His comments were later endorsed by Farage, leader of the right-wing U.K. Independence Party, which is known for its anti-immigration stance. Mr. Farage told the Australia Broadcasting Corporation that the former prime minister was “heroic” and “absolutely right.” In his London speech, Mr. Abbott argued that the people arriving in Europe should be considered economic migrants, not refugees, even if they were fleeing war in Syria or elsewhere, because they were no longer in immediate danger. “In Europe, as with Australia, people claiming asylum invariably have crossed not one border but many, and are no longer fleeing in fear but are contracting in hope with people smugglers,” he said.

October 28, 2015   Weather on demand: making it rain is now a global business. Welcome to the strange world of cloud seeding. Kyathi Climate Modification Consultants, the cloud-seeding company based in Bangalore 24 cylinders resembling sticks of dynamite wired to racks on the plane’s wings, 12 on each. The flares are filled with combustible sodium chloride—pulverized table salt mixed with a flammable potassium powder. When the switch is flipped, the end of the flare shoots orange fire and trillions of superfine salt particles are released into the cloud. Water molecules are attracted to salt, so they bond to the particles and coalesce into raindrops. It’s early September, still monsoon season in this southwestern region of India, yet the clouds haven’t done much more than drizzle. Maharashtra is one of the largest and wealthiest of India’s 30 states, with 110 million residents. It encompasses Mumbai and other large cities, plus vast swaths of farmland. Like other agricultural regions of India, it’s in its third consecutive year of drought. More than 80 percent of its farms depend on rain for irrigation, and agriculture production has dropped by almost a third since 2013. The human impact has been severe—1,300 debt-trapped farmers have committed suicide in Maharashtra in just the past six months. Weather Modification Inc., the world’s largest private aerial cloud-seeding company, based in Fargo, N.D. is training Indian pilots, meteorologists, and Doppler radar technicians to seed clouds. Cloud seeding has been controversial since it was invented by Schaefer in 1946. A chemist for General Electric, Schaefer made the first snowstorm in a laboratory freezer.  In India, I witnessed “hygroscopic” or water-attracting cloud seeding, which is used in warm-weather regions to enhance rain, disperse fog, and clean dirty skies. Snow-enhancement projects are often commissioned by water managers and power companies with hydroelectric plants; for decades, Pacific Gas & Electric has spent millions annually on cloud seeding in the Sierra Nevadas. Cold-weather seeding is done at the core of snow clouds that can reach altitudes as high as 60,000 feet: Flares filled with tiny flakes of silver iodide are ejected into the clouds’ centers. Silver iodide has a molecular structure similar to that of ice. As the silver particles drift down through the clouds, water gloms onto them as it would to ice, and snowflakes grow. This method is also routinely used for mitigating hail storms, especially in Canada: When silver iodide particles are injected into a hail-producing storm cloud, there are suddenly more nuclei for the ice to cling to. Smaller ice pellets, or “graupel,” form rather than large hail stones. Silver iodide in large concentrations can be harmful, but the concentrations found in snowpack after cloud seeding are often so low as to be undetectable. Breed’s NCAR study in Wyoming found that there was less silver iodide in snow and soil samples in areas where clouds had been seeded than there had been before the campaigns What we do know is that no two clouds are alike.” This makes it difficult to control and replicate the results of cloud-seeding studies. Despite the uncertainty, the industry is on the rise. According to the World Meteorological Organization, more than 52 countries have active cloud-seeding operations—up from 42 four years ago. In the U.S. last year, 55 cloud-seeding projects were reported to NOAA. There’s even a luxury cloud-seeding market emerging—one European company, for instance, charges a minimum of $150,000 to guarantee good wedding weather by forcing clouds to rain in the days before the event. Sweeney’s mechanics equip and service the more than 100 WMI cloud-seeding aircraft—Cessnas, King Airs, and Bombardiers—they operate or have leased and sold worldwide. Sweeney also built ICE (Ice Crystal Engineering), a company that makes cloud-seeding chemicals and supplies flares to 25 countries. It customizes and operates the planes and radars, manufactures the flares, and flies the missions. There are 34 private companies worldwide that do weather modification, but there’s no bigger rival in aerial cloud seeding than the Chinese government, which spends hundreds of millions a year seeding clouds in 22 of its 23 provinces, both to clear pollution above cities and to enhance rainfall for farming. China has yet to allow private companies to enter its market, but Sweeney is making inroads; he sold his first cloud-seeding plane to Beijing last year. Thailand’s government has a Bureau of Royal Rainmaking, with hundreds of employees that WMI helped train, though the program’s still using old technology—releasing mounds of table salt from trap doors in the bellies of its planes. And when the Argentine government took over the cloud-seeding program WMI built for the country, it cut costs. Soon after, two pilots died seeding clouds above a mountain, and the project was suspended. a huge white orb, about 80 feet in diameter, on top of a scaffolded tower. This is the latest in Doppler radar, a technology that’s improved significantly over the last decade, along with satellite data and computing power. It helps the government make sure it’s getting its money’s worth. The office of disaster management in Aurangabad, at the center of Maharashtra’s farming region has an orb which sends out electromagnetic waves that travel hundreds of kilometers; when the waves hit rain droplets and ice crystals, they bounce back and create an image of the cloud contour. The stronger the signal, the denser the cloud and the more intense the rain. (Source: Bloomberg): http://tinyurl.com/o8fmwdn

28 October 2015  Forget X-rays, now you can see through walls using WI-FI: device called RF Capture, developed by researchers at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) captures silhouettes and can even identify people when they're stood behind concrete.The RF Capture device was developed by researchers at MIT. Wireless signals travel through the wall and reflect off the body behind it. This creates a silhouette from which body parts can be identified. Silhouettes can then be compared to a database of bodies to identify who they belong to - and it can even identify which hand their moving. The team continued that the emitted radiation is approximately 10,000 times lower than that of a standard phone. The researchers said the technology could have major implications for everything from gaming and film-making to emergency-response and elder-care. (Source: DailyMail): http://tinyurl.com/okea2ap

Oct 27th, 2015  Germans panic as Muslims march through city ‘This is our future'’ (VIDEO). 162,700 new migrants entered the Bavarian region of Germany so far this month. 170,000 new migrants entered Bavaria  last month. You can hear German women talking about Islamists marching through their town. Their voices and words display panic and fear: “None of us want this. We’re all scared.” “What is this? How will this be in 100 years?” “This is not my life. It just shows you how many of them are here already.” “Now there’s another 1.5 million who came this year.” “Every year 2-3 million arrive.” “It’s generally about foreign infiltration.” “Yes, exactly.” “We won’t dress like we do now.” “Here, no! They won’t take anything from me!” “Look, when I walk through the streets of the city, it’s only foreigners!” “There are walking 50 foreigners and I only see one European face.” “Look at the women! They’re all veiled!” “This is our future.” (Source: TheGatewayPundit): http://tinyurl.com/qyshaxn

Oct 27, 2015  Bavaria tells Merkel to limit migrant numbers by Sunday or else. The German state on the front line of the country’s migrant crisis has set Angela Merkel a deadline of Sunday to put an end to the influx or risk unspecified emergency measures, underscoring growing impatience among the German chancellor’s political allies as the flow continues unabated. On Tuesday, Ms. Merkel dismissed Bavaria’s threat and pointed instead to long-term efforts to negotiate an international solution, setting the stage for a possible confrontation between the government and her increasingly irate allies this weekend. Figures provided by Bavaria’s interior ministry indicate that the number of migrants who entered Bavaria in October should surpass the 170,000 recorded last month after Ms. Merkel decided to let migrants stranded in Hungary travel to Germany, effectively suspending European Union rules mandating that refugees apply for asylum in their first port of entry in the bloc. Although states have no power over migration policies, legal experts say Mr. Seehofer who is also chairman of the Christian Social Union, sister party to Ms. Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union and a junior partner in the ruling coalition in Berlin could invoke the constitution to put emergency measures in place, arguing that the federal government has failed in its duties to protect the country’s borders. Bavaria has urged Berlin to set up camps for asylum seekers on Germany’s southern borders in an attempt to speed up the review of asylum applications and expedite the departure of rejected applicants. But the plan has run into opposition from Ms. Merkel’s junior coalition partner, the Social Democrats, who fear such zones would be impractical and politically indefensible. Mr. Seehofer has also threatened to take the government to court. Mr. Seehofer was also critical of Austria, which he said was waving through large numbers of migrants to Germany without coordinating with German officials. Slovenia, whose police force is already augmented with officers from Austria, expects police reinforcements from Germany and other European countries.

Germany
Oct 27, 2015  The German health service has been completely overwhelmed by the influx of Muslim asylum-seekers who are refusing to be treated by female medics. Doctor's outrage at 'refugees pushing German hospitals to breaking point'. A doctor working in German hospitals has revealed the horrifying chaos which could face the NHS if thousands of migrants from the Middle East manage to reach Britain.The hospitals simply cannot cope because so many of the migrants require treatments for diseases long since eradicated in Europe. Migrant parents are abandoning their children at pharmacies across the country after being told that they have to pay a prescription charge for lifesaving drugs.Huge numbers of the asylum-seekers have Victorian diseases including TB, which they risk passing on to locals. German authorities have been forced to post police at hospitals around the country after others got involved in angry clashes with medics over cultural differences. Many migrants have AIDS, syphilis, open TB and many exotic diseases that we, in Europe, do not know how to treat them. Migrants stabbed the doctors who tried to save a tiny eight-month-old baby which had been "dragged across half of Europe for three months. The physician had to undergo surgery and two nurses are laid up in the ICU. Nobody has been punished. The local press is forbidden to write about it. A WHO spokesman said there were some concerns about cholera coming to the West from Iraqi and Syrian refugees, particularly because in 80 per cent of cases it does not show symptoms, but that in a normal, Western city, cholera would not be a big problem because cholera spreads through the water system and Western cities have safe supplies with sewage and drinking water pipes completely separate.

October 26, 2015  The end of the Merkel era is within sight. As the placid surface of German society is disturbed, the positives of immigration are hard to see. The trouble is that Ms Merkel’s government has clearly lost control of the situation. German officials publicly endorse the chancellor’s declaration that “We can do this”. But there is panic just beneath the surface: costs are mounting, social services are creaking, Ms Merkel’s poll ratings are falling and far-right violence is on the rise. Meanwhile, refugees are still heading into Germany — at a rate of around 10,000 a day. (By contrast, Britain is volunteering to accept 20,000 Syrian refugees over four years.) Nonetheless, Ms Merkel was widely seen as having announced an “open door”. That impression persists, making Germany (along with Sweden) the EU country of choice for asylum seekers. The only way to turn this situation around quickly would be to build border fences of the kind that the Hungarian government of Viktor Orbán has constructed. Some German conservatives are now calling for precisely such measures. But Ms Merkel is highly unlikely to embrace the Orbán option. She knows that such a policy could sound the death knell for free movement of people within the EU, and would also seriously destabilise the Balkans by bottling up refugees there. Instead, Ms Merkel wants an EU-wide solution. But German plans for a compulsory mechanism to share out refugees across the EU — and for an emergency fund to share the costs — are encountering stiff resistance. As a result, Germany’s relations with its EU partners, already strained by the eurozone crisis, are worsening. The election of an anti-migrant government in Poland this weekend will not help. However, if the number of refugees heading into Germany continues at its present level for some time, and Ms Merkel remains committed to open borders, the pressure for her to step down will grow. There are, at present, no obvious rivals. But a continuing crisis will doubtless throw some up. (Source: FT): http://tinyurl.com/qay4tw3

Greece
Oct 26, 2015  Greece's foreign minister says the European Union needs to fork out money to improve conditions in camps housing refugees fleeing Syria in countries such as Jordan and Lebanon, in order to stem the flow of people heading to Europe. Kotzias says that there indications that 300,000 people now living in these refugee camps are on the move and heading to Greece. He said action must be taken to avoid destabilizing other countries in the region like Egypt, which could make the migration problem much worse. More than 500,000 migrants have entered Greece so far by sea from Turkey, and more than 120 have drowned. (Source: AP): http://tinyurl.com/nko8alv

Europe
26 Oct 2015  We are watching the death of open frontiers in Europe. The endless wave of migrants - for which we have utterly failed to prepare - will unleash extremist politics throughout the Continent. It is hard to comprehend the stupefying naivety of those, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who thought it a good idea to send out an utterly self-serving signal a few weeks ago inviting anyone who could make the journey to head for Europe. This was ostensibly aimed at Syrians who had fled the civil war in their homeland; but the exodus has been swelled by migrants from many other countries looking for a better life. Arguably a transit centre in Europe might be preferable to a refugee camp in Jordan or Turkey, though the latter at least has the merit of being close to Syria, where there are finally tentative signs of some political progress being made. But having encouraged people to move, the Europeans are now pulling up the drawbridge because they have found dealing with the influx overwhelming. Where were the preparations? Why were fleets of buses and trains and boats not laid on at the borders of the EU to bring people safely to Germany, which is, after all, where most people are headed?  At an ill-tempered summit in Brussels on 25 October, European leaders belonging to the borderless Schengen area blamed each other for the crisis before finalising a 17-point plan to be foisted upon countries that don’t agree with it. The countries that are in the front-line of this crisis are understandably seething: Viktor Orbán, Hungary’s prime minister, accused the German chancellor of “moral imperialism”. This will unleash extremist politics in Europe. In Germany, the anti-immigrant Pegida movement is attracting thousands to its rallies and in France the Front National continues to gain support. Elsewhere, Eurosceptic parties are making inroads. In Portugal, a Syriza-style leftist minority government has taken office opposed to the eurozone’s fiscal rules; and in Poland, the Law and Justice Party is back in power, pledged to oppose any Brussels diktat on migrant quotas. Against this backdrop, which can only darken, Britain has to decide over the next two years whether to remain part of an increasingly unstable organisation. The advantages of staying in are diminishing rapidly. If anything, the migration crisis has made this less achievable: why would countries forced to take migrants against their wishes agree to let Britain off the hook, even if we are outside the Schengen system? Sooner or later, the million or so new migrants will be allowed to move around Europe and many may want to come here. In the early stages of this crisis, the rationale ascribed to Germany’s policy was that they need people because of a falling birth rate and dwindling population. Britain, by contrast, is growing rapidly. Indeed, on the continent, the era of open frontiers is drawing to a close amid political acrimony and human misery.

Balcans  
25 October 2015  On the march to western Europe: shocking pictures show thousands of determined men, women and children trudging across the Balkans as politicians warn EU could collapse in weeks. Battling howling winds, driving rain and icy temperatures, thousands of migrants today marched into Slovenia. Photographed from above, the refugees formed a single column as they crossed into the country from Croatia. It comes as Slovenia's Prime Minister warns the EU will break up if leaders cannot agree on how to deal with crisis. Since October 17, more than 62,000 migrants have arrived in Slovenia, with some 14,000 still passing through the country on today alone. Romania, Bulgaria and Serbia have all now warned they could close their borders if Germany and Austria stop accepting migrants. More than 680,000 migrants and refugees have crossed to Europe by sea so far this year from the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Turkey, the starting point for most of the migrants, is pressing the EU for funds, visa-free travel, accelerated membership talks and resumed participation in EU summits in return for cooperation in stemming the refugee flow.

Lengyelország
2015. X. 25. Politikai földrengés a lengyel parlamenti választásokon. Kaczyński pártja, a korábban már kormányzó Jog és Igazságosság nyerte a lengyelországi parlamenti választásokat az exit pollok szerint. A PiS nagyobb arányban, 16 százalékkal a földbe döngölte a mostani kormánypártot, és Szydło Beata vezetésével várhatóan egyedül is tud kormányozni. Történelmi fordulat, hogy az egymással összefogó és együtt induló baloldali pártok nem érték el a bejutási küszöböt, így a baloldal kiesett a parlamentből. Két idén alapított párt is bejutott a szejmbe. Orbán Viktor számára örömteli fejlemény a PiS győzelme, mert így a magyar kormány egy erős szövetségest kaphat a mostani EU-s politikájához. Míg a V4-ek megállapodásából Kopacz Ewa  legutóbb a menekültkvóták ügyében kihátrált, a PiS-szel ez nem fordulhat elő, erre Szydło célzott is a kampányban. Korábban a magyar kormányzati körökben is beszéltek már arról, hogy a PiS nagyarányú győzelmével kalkulál Orbán, amely erősítheti az általa képviselt EU-s politikát. (Forrás: Index)

Europe  
25 Oct 2015  As leaders of eastern European countries turned on each other at a foul-tempered emergency summit in Brussels, They said the Schengen visa-free zone and even the European Union itself could be pulled apart as states threw up borders to halt the influx. Every day counts, otherwise we will soon see families in cold rivers in the Balkans perish miserably' -  Juncker said. Hahn, the EU’s ‘neighbourhood’ Commissioner, said there were now 20 million refugees in Europe’s backyard and that regime's new Russian- and Iranian-backed assault on Aleppo, Syria's biggest city, would produce an “immediate impact” in the numbers reaching Europe. Initial statistics suggested that some of the almost eight million displaced people who had stayed inside the country were now also starting to leave. The US and Saudi Arabia dramatically responded to Russian air-strikes in support of the Assad regime by agreeing to boost their own military and diplomatic support for the Syrian rebels, threatening an ever worsening downward spiral. The European Commission revealed last night that just eight out of 28 member states had volunteered emergency equipment and experts to address the crisis, a month after they were asked to come forward with offers. Cerar, the Slovenian prime minister, attacked Croatia for dumping migrants on its border without warning. He said some 12,000 people a day were arriving in the tiny state of two million.Viktor Orbán, the Hungarian leader, demanded an end to Europe’s “open border policy” which he blamed for the crisis. Mr Tsipras criticised the lack of “responsibility” from other states, and said Turkey, the launching point for many trips to Europe, should have been invited. Zoran Milanovic, the Croatian Prime Minister, attacked Mr Tsipras. "Why doesn't Greece control its maritime half with Turkey?” he said. "If Germany and Austria and other countries close their borders, we will be ready to also close our borders at that very same moment," said Boyko Borisov, the Bulgarian Prime Minister. In Germany, according to Welt am Sonntag, an unsigned discussion paper circulated among security official warns: “We are importing Islamic extremism, Arabic anti-semitism, the national and ethnic conflicts of other nations and other concepts of rights and society.” (Source: TheTelegraph): http://tinyurl.com/ncj3tjx

10/25/2015 A Palestinian Authority polling institute survey of Arabs living in Judea, Samaria, Gaza and eastern Jerusalem indicate
that most want to leave the Land of Israel and emigrate to other countries, according to a Ynet report. 68% of the Arabs surveys are concerned for their economic well-being. 70% of the Arabs surveyed would emigrate to the West if they could. 70 percent among their primary concerns are the increased likelihood of war with Israel, and their worsening financial situation. The poll was carried out between June 16-24 with a sample of 1024 adults. (Source: IsraelsVoice): http://tinyurl.com/nq745qe

Hogyan ítélik meg  Svédországban a magyar migrációs politikát? A hivatalos, a sajtó által is sulykolt álláspont szerint a magyarok kegyetlenek, lelketlenek, egy humánus ország számára elfogadhatatlan módon akarják kezelni a válságot. A médiában folyton a „magyar falról”, a „magyar kerítésről” beszélnek. A blogokon, alternatív híroldalakon és az emberek egymás közötti beszélgetéseiben már más a helyzet. A többség támogatja a magyar politikát, mert felismeri, hogy ezzel a népvándorlással szemben már nem lehet mást tenni. Sokan érdeklődnek nálam a magyarországi helyzetről, sokan egyenesen ide is költöznének. A svédek saját tapasztalatai, amelyeket például turistaként szereztek, nagyon jók Magyarországról és a magyarokról... (Forrás: MagyarHírlap): http://tinyurl.com/nqgyp77
