Operation Streamline is the U.S. Federal court system response to mass increases in immigration enforcement. Everyday in border cities like Tucson, Ariz., hundreds of migrants apprehended throughout the U.S. are sentenced en masse with scant legal procedures. Criticized as unconstitutional, Streamline sends people to jail or deportation daily.

Off-limits to cameras, journalists ST McNeil and Josh Morgan brought graphic artist Lawrence Gipe to the courtroom to witness and record the "assembly-line." His sketches are the first images ever detailing an opaque border enforcement system.

Hamas politburo chief Khaled Mashaal attended the anniversary celebration of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) liberation on Wednesday evening, October 3, at Saladin Castle in Cairo.

In his statement during the celebration, which was attended by Egypt’s Cultural Minister Mohamed Saber Arab, urged Arab leaders to work on liberating Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque from the Israelis.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Hamas politburo chief Khaled Mashaal:
“Today, after the Arab Spring uprisings, and after the January 25 Revolution in beloved Egypt, moral support is not accepted or enough. My message is to prepare for the project of liberating Al-Quds (Jerusalem) and Al-Aqsa Mosque, God willing.”

Mashaal added that the Palestinian Authority has to stop pinning hopes on negotiations with Israel, and should resort to pushing away from the negotiation table and turning to resistance as the only way to liberate the Palestinian territories.

He also stressed necessity for putting an end to inter-Palestinian division, mainly between Fatah and Hamas, and work hard to achieve reconciliation and unity.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Hamas politburo chief Khaled Mashaal:
“It is time for turning the table of negotiations, surrender and turn political processes upside down over those who wanted us to be slaves on its dwarf seats. Today, the Palestinian leadership is required, with all its names and factions, to take a large step towards putting an end to division and accomplishing reconciliation.”

The celebration, organized by Al-Quds International Foundation, was dubbed “In the Footsteps of Saladin.”

It included music performances of Palestinian folklore and national songs about Al-Quds.

Amnesty International Urges Morsi to ...
Cairo, Egypt
By U.S. Editor
04 Oct 2012

Amnesty International sent a letter Tuesday, October 2, to Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi urging him to put an end to the “bloody” legacy of repression, torture and violence that have been used against protestors since the popular uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak’s regime.

Amnesty International highlighted the alleged violations of Egypt’s military and police against protestors over the past 20 months in two lengthy reports.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Nagad al-Bora’y, lawyer and human rights activist:
“I take this report as a claim that has to be seriously investigated. If it is proven that any of the military leaders has been directly involved, he must be tried. They are just like ordinary people who must be tried if they are convicted. They even have to be tried before civil courts, because these were violations against civilians in the streets.”

Amnesty International said that Egypt's new leader had to make reforms to ensure accountability and transparency of the army and the police.
The human rights group’s first reports sheds light on “Brutality Unpunished and Unchecked: Egypt’s Military Kills and Tortures Protesters with Impunity,” and the second deals with the "total impunity" of country's police forces against protestors.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Mohamed Zari’, lawyer, human rights activist, head of Arab Organization for Criminal Justice:
“Besides asking President Morsi to punish the criminals for their crimes against the Egyptian people, the two reports also stress the necessity of reforming the judiciary system and presenting the real criminals for trial, whether they are from the police or the military.”

Amnesty International said that since the January 25 Revolution last year, as well as the violence used against demonstrators by Mubarak’s police, repression hasn’t disappeared in post-revolution Egypt, whether from the army or the police.

President Morsi had previously vowed to set up a fact-finding committee to investigate the killings and abuses that took place under military rule, yet the committee has been given little time to gather findings, get information and summon witnesses, Amnesty International said.

Egyptian political activists, legal experts, NGO members and human rights activists held a press conference on Wednesday, October 3, to announce the formation of the “Egyptian Constitutional Front”, which they consider as a new constitution-writing panel to draw a new representative constitution.

They expressed rejection to the current Islamist-dominated constitution-writing panel, which they expect will not fully tackle human rights issues, aiming to place the goals of the revolution in the new constitution.

According to founding members, the Egyptian Constitutional Front aims to draft a democratic constitution based on the principles of citizenship and respect of human rights.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Hafez Abou Seada, Chairman of the Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR):
“Constitutions are established through agreement even if there is a minority of 10%. They should feel that they are partners of making the new constitution. The big mistake and catastrophe was that the constitution-writing panel was subjected to the majority. The majority is changeable and the constitution governs all Egyptians. Therefore, I believe that the wise people inside the Islamic trend have to return once again to Egyptian national unity.”

They also highlighted the importance of entrenching certain rights into Egypt’s new constitution, including freedom of the press, the right to peaceful protest, and a wide range of economic and social rights.

The attendees expressed rejection of giving the authority to form the constitution panel to the President again in case of the dissolution of the current panel.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – George Ishaaq, political activist and founder of Kefaya Movement:
“We should be careful when we offer the new draft constitution and discuss it with the people. It is Egypt’s post-revolution constitution, so it has to be completely different than that of pre-revolution Egypt.” The current panel was elected by the members of the People's Assembly (the lower house of the parliament) and the Shura Council (the upper house of the parliament) before the dissolution of the People's Assembly.

The panel still faces the risk of dissolution by court order on the grounds that it was drawn up by the dissolved lower house of parliament.

Egypt's Supreme Administrative Court is expected to rule on the constitutionality of the panel on October 9.

Founders of the Egyptian Constitutional Front include former MP Amr Hamzawy, editor in chief of Al Alam Al Youm Newspaper Saad Hagras, board member of Al Wafd Political Party Essam Sheha, and member of the journalist Syndicate Gamal Fahmy.

The Spanish Embassy in Cairo called on the Egyptian authorities for tight security after Spanish political satire Magazine El Jueves showed in its latest edition on Wednesday, September 26, a caricature deemed insulting to Muslims.

The caricature shows several long-bearded Muslims in a police lineup under the title "But...does anyone know what Mohammad looks like?"

El Jueves' controversial caricature comes following the French Charlie Hebdo Magazine that also published anti-Islam cartoons, causing French embassies and institutions in 20 countries to temporarily close as a precaution against potential backlash.

Mobs of protesters have recently attacked American embassies in some Muslim countries including Egypt, Libya, Yemen and Pakistan.

Thousands of demonstrators marched this Saturday, September 22, 2012 in Caracas, Venezuela, to show their support for socialist president Hugo Chavez, two weeks ahead of a crucial election that could give him another six-year term, after having been in charge since 1999.
Scores of people traveled from distant places of the country to join the march in Caracas, wearing red to show their support of Chavez. Many of these people are benefit recipients of “Misiones,” a popular, government-sponsored social program to fight poverty using oil export revenue.
(interview 1 – Omar Rangel, optometrist: “What Chavez has done is to vindicate us, to include us in all the social programs. That’s what we have now. That’s why here; years and years will pass and we will still be here for Chavez”) In a particularly tight election, on October 7, Chávez will face opposition candidate, Henrique Capriles Radonski, who denies the alleged official government accusations to eliminate “Misiones” if Capriles is elected. (interview 1 – Telandria Castillo, teacher: “He is not friend of the ‘missions’. He has proven that he doesn’t mind the welfare of the mass but only that of one minority”) Chavez, who has remained in power since 1999 and has been treated recently in Cuba for cancer, is leading many polls with more than a 20% advantage over Capriles.

Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby held a press conference on Wednesday, September 19, at the Arab League headquarters in Cairo, where he addressed various issues including the ongoing UN General Assembly meetings, the Syrian crisis and the recent anti-Islam film produced in the United States.

Al-Araby told reporters that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the Arab League, the African Union and the European Union are working on reaching an agreement against religious defamation.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby:
“We’re working on it. Thank God, it’s not only the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Arab League but also the European Union and the African Union showing interest in this issue to put together the measures to start preparing an international convention prohibiting defaming or insulting religions.”

As for the Syrian issue, Al-Araby detailed the mission of the new UN-AL envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi and his recent visit to Damascus where he met with President Bashar al-Assad, Syrian officials, opposition members, Syrian Free Army members and representatives of civil society organizations.

He added that the Egyptian and the Arab League positions are clear on the issue, demanding Al-Assad to step down.

SOUNDBITE 2 (English) – Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby:
“I stick to what the resolution of the Arab League pronounced, that what is needed is the beginning of a transitional period which will entail of course a new government – a coalition government or whatever it is. And also the Arab resolution said or issued an appeal to President Assad to step down.”

Al-Araby stressed in the press conference he held before heading to New York to take part in the UN General Assembly meetings, that the reason for the failure in dealing with the Syrian crisis is the international system established since 1945 and the veto used by China and Russia.

He clarified that the Arab League and the United Nations were unable to resolve the Syrian crisis due to the non-cooperation of Al-Assad and his regime and their rejection of all previous initiatives over the past few months.

Egypt’s Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr, Turkey’s Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi met in Cairo on Monday evening, September 17, over the Syrian crisis.

The meeting was part of the “contact group” initiative called for by Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi and composed of Egypt, Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia.

The three Foreign Ministers agreed to continue their talks in New York on the sidelines of the 67th session of the UN General Assembly that will open on September 18 until September 28.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr:
“Today, we discussed a group of ideas and principles generally that are supposed to contribute to reaching a solution for the tragic situation in Syria and putting an end to the bloodshed. We agreed to continue our consultations and we decided to hold our next meeting in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meetings.”

SOUNDBITE 2 (English) – Turkish FM Ahmet Davutoglu:
“We have decided to come together to consult and to try to develop a common perspective for the future of our region as well as for the future of Syria, of course as this is the issue. What we observed today is that there are certain principles we agree on, but there are certain differences in opinions as you may expect. And we also have an ultimate objective to have a strong Syria.”

Egypt’s Foreign Minister said that Saudi Arabia, which attended the preliminary activities, missed the meeting due to other commitments, while analysts believe that Saudi Arabia might have refrained due to disagreement with Iran that supports the regime of Bashar al-Assad.

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi:
“The common principles are more than the disagreements. Everyone stressed the necessity to find a peaceful solution, especially the influential countries in the region, Egypt, Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia. They have a big role and they could come up with a recommendation that we hope in the end will give a satisfactory result to all.”

Egypt, Turkey and Saudi Arabia call the Syrian regime to step down while Iran is Al-Assad’s main ally and it accuses certain courtiers such as Saudi Arabia and Turkey of attempting to assist those who want to topple the Syrian regime.

15 Sep 2012

On Saturday, September 15, Egypt’s security forces cleared out protesters who have been clashing with security forces for the past four days near the US Embassy. The protests were sparked by anti-Islam movie that insults the Prophet Mohamed.

Security forces cleared the streets leading to the US Embassy in Cairo and Tahrir Square, beating and arresting protesters.

Egypt’s Interior Minister Ahmed Gamal el-Din said as he inspected the area that, “our presence here is to clear the square of people who are breaking the law" "We must preserve the square as a symbol of the revolution. That is the aim of our operation.

People see that it is the right decision made by the police to clear the square and the area around the embassy, as those who clashed with the security forces appeared to be thugs.

The scene on the streets surrounding the clashes is full of debris, broken sidewalks and rubbish.

Clashes erupted again on Friday night with security forces, leaving one killed and tens injured.

Ismail Rashad, 35, was killed by shotgun fire during clashes with security forces near the US Embassy.

According to a statement released by the interior ministry, Rashad was accused in 16 prior cases and was given a year's prison sentence.

US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta called on Egypt's government on Friday to ensure the embassy's safety.

Clashes were initially started late on Wednesday between security forces and protestors outside the US Embassy, leaving around 250 wounded.

15 Sep 2012

Thousands of Lebanese greeted Pope Benedict XVI as he headed on his Popemobile to the Baabda Presidential Palace where he met with the country's top political and Muslim religious leaders on Saturday, September 15.
Crowds of people were waving both the Vatican and Lebanese flags and cheering as he passed with confetti swirling in the air.
In the Beirut suburb of Baabda where there was a festive atmosphere on the streets, the Pope first met with Lebanese President Michel Suleiman and his wife.
The Pope also met with Speaker Nabih Berri and Prime Minister Najib Miqati.

Pope Benedict calls on Lebanon to be a model of peace and religious freedom in the tumultuous Middle East.
During a speech, the Pope expressed sympathy with youth in Syria. The pope said he admired their courage, adding this is a time for Christians and Muslims to come together "so as to put an end to violence and war."
He also called for interfaith unity in order to end violence in the Middle East.
The visit of the Pope to Lebanon is aimed at bridging the gap between Christians and Muslims in the Middle East.
The pontiff, who arrived on Friday for a three-day visit, praised Lebanon as an example of “coexistence and respectful dialogue between Christians and their brethren of other religions” when he arrived at the airport.
Hezbollah's leader Hassan Nasrallah also welcomed the Pontiff's arrival in Lebanon, describing the event as "historic and extraordinary.”

Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in Cairo Tuesday, September 11, 2012, shouting anti-American and anti-Israeli slogans along with "there is no God but Allah," and scaling the US Embassy's walls to pull down the American flag. The protests come in response to an inflammatory trailer to a film called "The Innocence of Islam," posted on youtube, which reportedly depicts the prophet Mohammed as a homosexual pedophile. While people's anger in Egypt propelled them to protest at the US embassy in Cairo, in Libya, enraged mobs attacked the US consulate in Benghazi. The US Ambassador to Libya and three staff members were killed during the attack. In this exclusive video, interviews with local Egyptians and protesters illustrate their religious sentiment, for a full transcription click here.

8:15: "I am Sabir Shartout from Giza, and when I heard about the protest I was one of the first people to confirm my attendance-- it's the least one can do. It is a protest to express the people's anger. This situation is in need of investigation. To those who insulted the prophet: he is the greatest symbol of Islam and he is the root of existence for all Muslims, for all Muslims are alive to love their God and their Prophet. It is really hard and painful for our people and people like us to have to go through those situations. Do we, as people, really deserve this insult? As Muslim, do we really deserve this humiliation? Someone has insulted a symbol, a great symbol that gives meaning to my whole life, and that is the Prophet Mohamed (PBUH). Why are they doing this?"

After the Tunisian Minister of Education Abdul Latif Obaid deducted 100 dinars (63$) from the wages of junior high school teachers who protested in May, the General Union of Tunisian Workers organized a demonstration with many of the teachers and trade unionists from different parts of the Republic.

PM Kandil: Budget Deficit Unexpectedl...
Cairo, Egypt
By U.S. Editor
11 Sep 2012

Egypt’s budget deficit for this fiscal year unexpectedly rose up to USD 28.71 billion as it was previously estimated to reach USD 21.98 billion, Egyptian Premier Hesham Kandil said in a press conference following a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, September 12, at the Cabinet headquarters in Cairo.
Kandil added that such a large burden of deficit would force government to resort to borrowing.
Egypt has already requested a USD 4.8 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Egypt’s PM Hesham Kandil:
“The EGP 175 billion (USD 28.71 billion) deficit is more than expected. Last year, the budget deficit was expected to reach EGP 134 billion (USD 21.98 billion) but it has become EGP 175 billion. This increase in budget deficit burdens us to have to make up for it through borrowing.” Kandil told reporters that borrowing has to be side by side with increasing national and foreign investments, noting that the government targets 4.5% growth rate this year, which requires investments of about USD 45.28 billion.
SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Egypt’s PM Hesham Kandil:
“We are working on settling the budget deficit as one of the courses. The other course, which is relevant, is to increase investments, whether they are national or foreign investments. The targeted growth rate is from 4% to 4.5% by the end of this year, which, according to the government’s plan, requires investments of EGP 276 billion (USD 45.28 billion).” The Egyptian Prime Minister noted that the IMF loan to Egypt would reassure the world economic institutions about the Egyptian economy and its ability to pay off debt, stressing that the economic reform program is 100% national regardless of the IMF loan.
Kandil finally called on the Egyptian people to work with the government to avoid any further burdens to the country’s budget by refraining from workers’ protests that lead to closing companies and factories.

Guarani Kaowa, Struggle for Land
Dourados, Brazil

05 Sep 2012

Guarani-Kaiowá is no longer, since July 30, 2012, only a name of another Brazilian Indian tribe. The designation was multiplied in the social networks in Brazil and in the world as an act of solidarity resulted from the dissemination (by the mainstream media) of the situation of the Indian group in their struggle for land in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul.
In São Paulo and other cities, marchers showed their anger in protests. With the agitation of the cause, the situation of the Guarani-Kaiowá entered in the discussions in different circles. In this same period, the photographer and journalist Rodrigo Paiva was among the Guarani-Kaiowá, recording their way of life, their difficulties and struggles. In dozens of pictures and testimonials, he captured the reality in areas where Indians are settled and in threatened villages, so mentioned by the major media. He's also given voice to many other actors in this comprehensive scenario - authorities, farmers, experts. Besides deepening an issue that caused passion and mobilized the country, the documentary "Guarani-Kaiowá" presents these records revealing the delicate plot that involves the issue of this Indian group and their territory, in the physical space where it manifests itself. It also brings the subtleties and reverberations in addition to the phrases of protest and the layers that make this a matter of intricate and disturbing contours.
