Iran Aid ship

Sputnik News   Posted Wed., May 13, 2015

The deputy chief of staff of the Iranian armed forces warned on Tuesday that Iran would retaliate in force against any country, which attacks an Iranian ship heading to Yemen with humanitarian aid cargo on board.

“Attacking the Iranian Red Crescent aid ship will spark war in the region”, Brigadier General Massoud Jazzayeri told the Arabic-language TV Alalam.

“The US and Saudi Arabia should know that Iran’s self-restraint has a limit,” he cautioned.

An Iranian ship carrying 2,500 tons of medical supplies, relief workers and peace activists from several countries left the Southern Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas for Yemen’s Red Sea port of Hudaydah, Iran’s Fars news agency reported.

The Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) has been trying to dispatch humanitarian aid to Yemen by sea and air, but has failed due to Saudi Arabia’s full blockade of the war-ravaged country.

Iran had earlier sent five consignments of humanitarian aid to Yemen, including a total of 69 tons of relief, medical, treatment, and consumer items, the agency reported.

Saudi Arabia launched its bombing campaign against Yemen on March 26 in an attempt to drive out the Shiite Houthi militants who seized power in Yemen, and to reinstate the fugitive President Mansour Hadi.

Vatican Signs Treaty Recognizing Palestine As A State. Israel Disappointed

International Business Times   By Lora Moftah     Posted Wed., May 13, 2015

The Vatican announced Wednesday it concluded a treaty to formally recognize Palestine as a state, a move that has sparked criticism from Israel, which argues that it hinders the peace process.

The announcement that the Vatican has switched its diplomatic recognition from the Palestinian Liberation Organization to the state of Palestine is a symbolic but significant part of broader international efforts to legitimize Palestinian statehood.

The Vatican confirmed the move through its spokesman, Rev. Federico Lombardi, who said Wednesday, “Yes, it’s a recognition that the state exists.” The Vatican, which is itself a nation state, previously welcomed the Palestinian statehood bid in 2012, but a new treaty formalizes the Holy See’s diplomatic recognition of the state.

The treaty “will be submitted to the respective authorities for approval ahead of setting a date in the near future for the signing,” according to a statement by a joint commission of Palestinian and Vatican officials.

Israeli officials responded that it was “disappointed” by the move. “This move does not promote the peace process and distances the Palestinian leadership from returning to direct and bilateral negotiations,” Israel’s foreign ministry said, in comments reported by the Associated Press.

“Israel will study the agreement and will consider its steps accordingly.”

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
