Lynsey at The Coming Crisis - 28 seconds ago
Two suicide bombs killed at least 11 people on Sunday at a church in a barracks in northern Nigeria, where the Islamist sect Boko Haram is waging a campaign of violence, the military said. Army spokesman Bola Koleoso said a bus drove into the side of the St. Andrew Military Protestant Church at the Jaji barracks in Kaduna state and exploded at around 1105 GMT, five minutes after a service had started. Explosives inside a Toyota Camry were detonated outside the church ten minutes later, he said. The military said at least 30 were injured. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/11/25/us-... more »

Both Benghazi And The Petraeus Scandal Suggest US Media Is Way Too Cozy With The State

Intercept at The Intercept - 14 minutes ago
Business Insider Geoffrey Ingersoll [image: newsweek cover obama gay president] If there is just one lesson to take away from the Benghazi and Petraeus affairs it's that the American media is way too cozy with heads of state. Immediately following the Benghazi crisis, U.S. gersollmedia did its due diligence and flexed its sources, anonymous and otherwise, to uncover the truth about the attack — but then they purposely failed to report the details because of requests from the CIA and the Obama administration.

Mursi power grab strains stability amid protests

Lynsey at The Coming Crisis - 31 minutes ago
Egypt's stock market plunged on Sunday in its first day open since Islamist President Mohamed Mursi's seizure of new powers set off street violence and a political crisis, unraveling efforts to restore stability after last year's revolution. More than 500 people have been injured in protests since Friday, when Egyptians awoke to news Mursi had issued a decree temporarily widening his powers and shielding his decisions from judicial review. Mursi and the judiciary hinted at compromise to avert a full-scale political crisis. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/11/25/us-egypt-preside... more »

Political Polarization in Egypt

Hani Fakhouri at Middle East Today - 59 minutes ago
The recent military flare up in Gaza between Hamas and the Israeli military forces led to the killings of more than 160 Palestinians and more than 1,200 injuries. Adding to the devastation was the destruction of homes and public and economic facilities. President Morsi of Egypt played an important mediator role between the feuding parties, which led to a truce and a ceasefire. President Morsi gained recognition from the U.S. government and other western powers for his efforts. Right after this achievement, President Morsi committed a political blunder by issuing constitutional dec... more »

Global Research Prof. James F. Tracy [image: news1]The week-long Israeli onslaught against largely defenseless Palestinians in Gaza that began on November 14 provides a basis for assessing how Western corporate media whitewash the war crimes of America’s foremost ally in the Middle East. There are three often intertwined techniques consciously applied to such news coverage—historical context, sourcing, and objectification of the enemy to be targeted. Such practices can readily transform journalism into propaganda that acts to abet such crimes while at the same time allowing journal... more »

Italy's centre left voted on Sunday to choose the candidate who will be the leading contender to succeed Mario Monti as prime minister after an election in March and take charge of steering the country through a deep recession.
