Malaysia jet disappearance no accident, investigator says

Malaysia PlaneKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — The pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines jet is believed to be solely responsible for the flight being taken hundreds of miles off course and there is no evidence of a mechanical failure or hijacking by a passenger, according to an law enforcement official involved in the investigation.

A high-ranking officer attached to a special investigative branch of the Malaysia police force in Kuala Lumpur told USA TODAY on Wednesday that investigators are pressing relatives of the pilot, Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah, for information on his behavior leading up to the March 8 flight.

The official could not speak on the record because he is not authorized to talk publicly on the investigation.

The Boeing 777 was bound for Beijing when it vanished from civilian radar. Malaysia says satellite data indicate the plane veered west about an hour after takeoff and then flew south deep into the southern Indian Ocean.

Bin Laden Son-in-Law Convicted at NYC Terror Trial

Sulaiman Abu Ghaith(NEW YORK) — Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law, the voice of fiery al-Qaida propaganda videotapes after the Sept. 11 attacks, was convicted Wednesday of conspiring to kill Americans for his role as the terror group’s spokesman.

The verdict came after about five hours of deliberation in the case against Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, the highest-ranking al-Qaida figure to face trial on U.S. soil since the attacks. The Kuwaiti imam had testified during a three-week New York trial that he answered bin Laden’s request in the hours after the attacks to speak on the widely circulated videos used to recruit new followers willing to go on suicide missions like the 19 who hijacked four planes on Sept. 11, 2001.

U.S. spending bill restores aid to Egypt, includes $1.5 billion

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Congress' new spending bill would restore more than $1.5 billion in military and economic aid to Egypt, which had been largely cut off after Egypt's military ousted President Mohamed Mursi last summer.

 

The bill includes up to $1.3 billion in military assistance, and $250 million in economic support for Cairo, but ties the funding to the Egyptian government taking steps toward restoring democracy.

 

The funds also would only be available if the U.S. Secretary of State certifies to congressional appropriations committees that the Cairo government is sustaining its strategic relationship with the United States and meeting its obligations under the 1979 Egypt-Israel peace treaty.

New Egyptian constitution gives greater freedom to Christians

By: Carey Lodge
Barnabas Fund has given thanks in its prayer update for a new draft of the Egyptian constitution that grants additional rights to Christians and marks a significant move away from the fundamental Islamic laws that have dominated in the past.

The organisation said the new draft was "good news" for the country's Christians, who have suffered a wave of attacks since the revolution in 2011.

First written during the rule of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, the previous constitution threatened basic human rights, in particular the freedom of religion. The situation has been aggravated by the fact that Egypt is currently struggling with a weakened and unstable political system.

A court in Egypt has dismissed an appeal by the Muslim Brotherhood against a ban on all its "activities" and the seizure of its assets.

Lawyers had sought to halt the implementation of the 23 September ruling affecting the Islamist movement, its NGO, and any affiliated groups.

Brotherhood officials said they would now appeal to a higher court.

The interim authorities have cracked down on the group since the army ousted President Mohammed Morsi in July.

Statement of Dr Salah Abu-Elfadl

Deputy Chariman The Egyptian Committe for the defence of the Secular State

To the MEPs in the European Parilament CPG  

 

in front of ep 

Ladies and gentlemen, members of the European Union, 

Thank you for the opportunity to speak to you. This is a quick attempt to summarise some of the issues that are pertinent to possible misunderstandings of the Egyptian situation in the current crucial time in the Middle East. I cannot get into the details since I have ten minutes or so.  

On 25th January the Egyptian people rose up against three evils; and sought three goals. The three evils were the corruption of the governing regime, its oppression, and its plans to pass the presidency on to Mubarak’s son Gamal. The three goals were bread, freedom, and social justice, which were chanted in Tahrir Square and all over the country. The Egyptian people never sought a religious state. After Mubarak stepped down, the lack of clear leadership enticed various forces to seek to dominate the outcome – not least the Islamists, including the Muslim Brothers and the Salafis.
