Figures suggest 473 anti-semitic incidents were recorded from January to June this year

The number of reported anti-Semitic incidents in the UK has increased by more than 50%, figures released by a charity have suggested.

There were 473 recorded anti-Semitic incidents between January and June this year, a 53% rise from 2014, according to the Community Security Trust.

Trust chief executive David Delew welcomed increases in crime reporting, but said the figures caused „anxiety“.

Home Secretary Theresa May said anti-Semitism had „no place in Britain“.

The CST – a charity that monitors anti-Semitism – said the 473 recorded incidents included 44 violent assaults and two involving „extreme violence“. … http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-33713259

German Journalists Investigated for Treason After Publishing Reports on Surveillance


TIME

A news website in Germany is being investigated by federal prosecutors for treason after it reported on the country’s apparent plans to expand domestic surveillance of online communications.

Prosecutors say they have launched the probe against two journalists of Netzpolitik.org, and an unidentified source, following a criminal complaint by Germany’s domestic intelligence agency over two articles that appeared on the website, reports Reuters.

Netzpolitik.org published an article in February last year saying that the spy agency — the Office for the Protection of the Constitution (Bfv) — was requesting more funding for increasing surveillance of online communications. In another report in April, it claimed the agency had plans to set up a special unit to monitor social media sites.

Bfv said the articles were based on leaked documents.

According to German media, the probe is the first time in 50 years that journalists have faced treason charges.

Chinese nationals, who were jailed for illegal logging, walk out of Myitkyina prison after being released during an amnesty in Myitkyina, the capital of Kachin State, north of Myanmar, July 30, 2015. Myanmar freed some political prisoners and 155 Chinese citizens jailed for illegal logging in an amnesty for nearly 7,000 people on Thursday, a move that could ease diplomatic tensions with influential neighbour China. A total of 6,966 prisoners were pardoned including the Chinese citizens held in Kachin state, of which 153 were given life sentences last week that prompted a diplomatic protest by an "extremely concerned" China.

Drumbeats of Possible War with Iran Grow Louder


TIME

You could almost see the U.S. and Iran drawing slowly closer to war Wednesday, as dubious lawmakers, including a pair of Republican senators seeking their party’s presidential nomination, grilled top Obama Administration officials over the pending nuclear deal with Tehran.

The reason is pretty simple: there appears to be a growing push among lawmakers, and their constituents, against the recent agreement hammered out by the U.S. and four other nations to restrain Iran’s push toward nuclear weapons (a CNN poll out Tuesday says 52% of Americans oppose the pact).

If the deal falls apart, Administration witnesses warned the Senate Armed Services Committee that Iran would have a fast track toward a nuclear arsenal. If the mullahs try to take advantage of that opening—something expected by U.S. intelligence—all signs suggest the U.S. will go to war to thwart their atomic ambitions.

Language from both the Administration and senators made clear there’s…

Why Windows 10 Users May Never Use Google Again


TIME

Microsoft’s new Windows 10 software, out Wednesday, is effectively a sneak attack on Google, packing a new desktop search bar that can field just about any question under the sun. And it’s powered in part by Microsoft’s own Bing search engine, meaning the move could help Microsoft gain even more of the search market share against its foremost rival.

Windows 10’s search features are a welcome change to the myriad search options currently sprawling across our digital lives. Right now, search looks a little like this: Want to search the web? Go to Google. Your calendar appointments? Open your calendar app. Your local files on a phone, tablet or PC? Launch finder windows, one by one. Microsoft aims to replace all of those searches with a single, comprehensive search bar that scans everything — your device, your apps, your cloud and the web — in one fell swoop.

The result…

France and the UK are on the edge of Kafkaesque surveillance


WebInvestigator.KK.org - by F. Kaskais

Surveillance laws being debated around the world should avoid the recent fate of the French – and the scorn of Franz Kafka

The problem of our laws, wrote Kafka, is that they can involve arbitrary, secretive acts on the part of elites. The law, on this view, has “brought only slight, more or less accidental benefits, and done a great deal of serious harm, since it has given the people a false sense of security towards coming events, and left them helplessly exposed”.

“We live”, Kafka concluded, “on the razor’s edge”.

Most would find Kafka’s parable, published in 1931, a mischaracterisation of the rule of law. In democracies with a separation of powers, there are checks and balances between legislative, executive and judicial branches of government. There is transparency, rigour and reason, rather than secrecy. There is accountability and oversight.

Or so we would hope.
