Abbas' Dismal Failure at the United Nations -
Abbas' Dismal Failure at the United Nations
As someone who has consistently advocated a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians based on a two-state solution, I was appalled to hear the speech delivered by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the United Nations General Assembly. Instead of using the occasion to provide constructive proposals and use reconciliatory language to advance the cause of peace, he engaged in acrimonious and discordant statements against Israel that did nothing but further embitter and alienate the Israeli public, whose support he needs the most to realize Palestinian aspirations. I wonder if Abbas has any clue how his irresponsible public utterances reinforce the negative perceptions between the Israelis and Palestinians and perpetuate the endemic hostility which has and remains the core evil that has thwarted all peace efforts in the past. He gave a campaign-style speech, appealing to his own public in an effort to salvage his sagging popularity, while being completely... - Designing Your World

By Marcin Goettig and Pawel Sobczak WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland's new Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz said on Wednesday she would largely stick to the policies of her predecessor Donald Tusk, including a cautious approach to the question of when eastern Europe's biggest economy will join the euro. In her first major policy speech as prime minister, Kopacz tried to appeal to voters before a parliamentary election next year, casting her government as caring and focused on the interests of ordinary Polish families. ... - Designing Your World

Nancy Pelosi: Congress Should Return To Vote On War
WASHINGTON -- Congress should return from its long election break and vote on President Barack Obama's authority to go to war against extremists in Iraq and Syria, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday. Obama launched strikes on the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, starting in early August, and will have been waging a wide-ranging military campaign against the militant group for more than three months before Congress returns from the campaign trail in mid-November. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has said Obama has the authority to wage the war, but that as speaker he would bring the House back to vote on a specific authorization to use military force sooner if the president proposed such a measure. Pelosi, who also said the White House has the authority to take the actions it has, nevertheless declared Wednesday that Boehner was wrong and that Congress, which under the Constitution has the responsibility to declare war, should be the body to draw... - Designing Your World

Asian-Americans Make Up The Fastest Growing Voting Bloc In The South
WASHINGTON -- Asian-Americans are now the fastest-growing racial group in the South and thus an increasingly important voting bloc in the region, according to a new analysis by a nonprofit civil rights group. The report by Asian Americans Advancing Justice, released last week, shows a 70 percent increase in the number of Asian-Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders living in the South from 2000 to 2010. Their population grew to nearly 4 million. Mee Moua, president and executive director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice, said the population growth translates into Asian-Americans having more political power in the region. "The numbers are clear: Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (NHPI) are by far the fastest growing racial group in the South, even outpacing the growth of Latinos," said Moua in a statement. "What this indicates is that these communities will be a driving force in the South's economy and provide the margin of victory in future... - Designing Your World
