Jihadist shift seen in Pakistan fewer Arabs

first_imgAssociated PressPESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) – In the Pakistani tribal regions that harbor al-Qaida and a cauldron of other jihadist groups, militants from Central Asia, China, Turkey and even Germany are growing in number, eclipsing Arabs and possibly raising new challenges not just for the U.S. but for Europe, Russia and China, say intelligence officials, analysts and residents of the area.Al-Qaida, the organization that plotted the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks from Afghanistan, consisted largely of Arabs, who were led by Osama bin Laden, a Saudi. But stepped-up U.S. drone strikes, Pakistani military offensives and dwindling cash reserves have driven out many of the Arabic-speakers in recent years, says Mahmood Shah, a retired brigadier and former security official in the tribal regions. The IJU, like other jihadi groups, seeks the installation, if necessary by force, of Islamic governments and revenge for Western attacks. In 2005 the U.S. State Department designated the IJU a Foreign Terrorist Organization.For the past 30 years, Bruce Hoffman, director of the Center for Peace and Security Studies at Washington’s Georgetown University, has been tracking terrorist groups and studying insurgencies. He said that European governments as well as China and Russia have good reason to keep a close eye on the tribal regions of Pakistan.“The IJU was also strengthened by their access to German converts,” he said, as well as to disaffected members of China’s Muslim Uighur minority, concentrated in Xinjiang, western China, whose radicalization “the Chinese are very concerned about.”Russia too has strong interests in the Muslim-dominated republics that were part of the Soviet Union, and in Chechnya and Dagestan, Hoffman said.The threat from the changing jihadist demographics is “more in the future than immediately. The main threat is that the existing nucleus will attract more and as time goes on the threat will increase. It exists now, but at a lower level,” he said in an interview. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Clean energy: Why it matters for Arizona Top Stories Ivan Safranchuk, an associate professor at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations, told The AP that the governments of the Central Asian republics also fear instability from neighboring Afghanistan once NATO and U.S. troops leave in 2014Safranchuk, who edits the Great Game, a magazine focused on Central Asia, said training camps in Pakistan have attracted mostly Uighurs and recruits from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.“If a new battle front opens in Kazakhstan or Kyrgyzstan, say, these militants will naturally be dispatched there,” he said.Stephen Sestanovich, an expert on Russian and Eurasian affairs at the U.S.-based Council on Foreign Relations, agreed that Russia and the Central Asian republics have a stake in what happens after the 2014 withdrawal.“It’s a reminder to the Russians that the U.S, departure from Afghanistan is going to be a very mixed blessing. That’s why (Russian President Vladimir) Putin has actually been talking up Russia’s stake in American success there. … Putin and Russian intelligence doubtless worry that Central Asia will be destabilized.”While the demographics may be changing, the militant presence in the tribal regions remains strong, despite the drone attacks and the local public’s growing expectation of a Pakistani military sweep, according to Safdar Hayat Khan, head of the Tribal Journalists Union, in an interview in Peshawar. Comments   Share   None of the Central Asian groups figuring in the apparent demographic change are new to the tribal regions. Some were welcomed to Afghanistan decades ago during the 1980s Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Others arrived during the Taliban’s rule of Afghanistan that lasted from 1996 to the American-led invasion of 2001. The breakaway Chechen government even had an embassy in Kabul.The Sept. 11 attacks focused global attention on the Arab militants, but the changing demographics could have implications for Europe as well as Russia and China, analysts say.The arrest in Madrid a month ago of three men who allegedly had explosives and reportedly trained in Pakistan’s tribal areas seems to highlight the changing reality.Two of them, Eldar Magomedov and Mohamed Ankari Adamov, were said to be Russians of Chechen descent while the third, Cengiz Yalcin, is Turkish.Spanish officials allege they were planning an attack in Spain or elsewhere in Europe. There was no identification of the target.Analysts and officials who track militant movements say they believe al-Qaida’s leadership, including Egyptian Ayman Al Zawahri, remains in Pakistan, where its redoubts have shrunk further under Pakistani military assaults, according to Shah, the ex-brigadier, who was interviewed in the northwest Pakistani city of Peshawar near the tribal regions. But jihadists from outside the Arab world have been getting more attention.A report on extremist trends released last month by Germany’s domestic intelligence said the Islamic Jihad Union, headquartered in Pakistan’s tribal area, is “widening its sphere in the sense of global jihad to include Europe.” Once dominated by ethnic Uzbeks, the IJU has sought to recruit German converts who have embraced a radical form of Islam as well as Germans of Turkish origin, say analysts familiar with the organization.In 2007, German intelligence foiled a terrorist plot planned by ethnic German converts to Islam who belonged to the Islamic Jihad Union (IJU).“They (IJU) want to recruit Turkish-origin people but maybe born in Germany, established here and with a German passport … they train them and build them up and send them to Germany as well as to other European countries to commit acts of terrorism,” said Rolf Tophoven, director of the German Based Institute for Terrorism Research and Security Policy.According to the SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks Islamist extremist messages, the IJU is known as the European affiliate to al Qaida. SITE described the IJU’s rise in prominence as a significant development within the global jihadist movement. Parents, stop beating yourself upcenter_img Sponsored Stories While there are no exact numbers, Shah said intelligence sources in the tribal regions put the number of Arab and African jihadists at about 1,500, compared with 3,500 to 4,000 ranging from Chinese Uighurs and Uzbeks to recruits from Turkey, the Russian republics of Chechnya and Dagestan as well as native and immigrant Germans.Two senior U.S. officials said the drone war was affecting al-Qaida numbers and morale. The deaths of high-profile al-Qaida figures such as Abu Yahya al-Libi, killed in a drone strike in June, have made others skittish, prompting some to leave Pakistan for other battlefields in Syria, Yemen, Iraq or their home countries, the officials said.In separate interviews, both Americans cited the case of a Saudi named Najam, who lost his legs to a drone at about the same time as al-Libi died. They said Najam, who came from an affluent family, was able to reach an agreement with the Saudi government to return to his wife and children.Intelligence suggests that Najam’s treatment has encouraged other militants to seek similar deals, switch to other battlefields or seek leniency from their governments, both U.S. officials said.They spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss information gleaned from on-the-ground intelligence.

Thailand drills down to drive domestic travel

first_imgThailand drills down to drive domestic travelThailand will boost domestic tourism as part of its objectives to achieve sustainability in tourism, H.E. Deputy Prime Minister, Somkid Jatusripitak, told a press briefing Monday, along with top officials from the Ministry of Tourism and Sports and Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), as well as public and private sectors that involve in the tourism industry.The core discussions touched on how to launch corrective measures and promotional campaigns through cooperation with related organisations, the private sector and airlines to boost the country’s tourism this year. The Deputy Prime Minister concluded that to achieve tourism competitiveness and a sustainable market share, Thailand should place strong emphasis on domestic travel.“The tourism ministry and TAT have been assigned to brainstorm and introduce policies to drive the country’s tourism forward,” the Deputy Prime Minister explained. “One project that needs to be discussed is “One District One Tourist Destination” to add more value to popular destinations as well as create new destinations through a story line to encourage travellers to explore new places.”The policy should also develop tourism and local product quality, he added, noting that particular attention should be given to the quality of souvenirs, tourism activities and walking streets.“The Ministry of Tourism and Sports, TAT as well as the Board of Investment of Thailand have been assigned to launch incentive measures to encourage the private sector and communities to invest in the tourism and hospitality sectors.”To strengthen Thailand’s gateway status in regional tourism, the deputy Prime Minister encouraged authorities to tap cooperation with Cambodia, Lao PDR., Myanmar and Vietnam (sometimes referred to as the CLMV market in trade circles). “The emphasis should be on developing joint travel packages, tourism products, air services and transport,” he said.Tourism and Sports Minister, H.E. Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, told the news briefing the domestic market would be a key economic stimulator this year as campaigns encourage travellers to explore beyond popular tourist destinations. “We are confident that specific campaigns; such as, the 12 Hidden Gems, 12 Hidden Gems Plus and ‘According to Legend …’ will boost the country’s domestic market this year,” she said.To encourage domestic travel, authorities will meet with the airlines to open new destinations and increase the frequencies to major destinations. “We need to study the potential of new routes that build traffic to Pattaya’s U-Tapao, Krabi and Chiang Mai International Airports and link secondary destinations to neighbouring countries particularly Cambodia, Lao PDR., Myanmar and Vietnam. Direct flights are needed to destinations promoted in the 12 Hidden Gems and 12 Hidden Gems Plus campaigns that will be our priority, but we need to estimate the province’s potential to attract traffic and airport capacity.”The Governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), Dr. Yuthasak Supasorn identified a new campaign “Thai Chuai Thai” (Thai Supports Thai) that will reward Thai travellers through a monthly lucky draw worth 1 million Baht, while adding an even bigger reward quarterly to encourage Thais to travel in the country.The campaign details will be released soon ahead of the campaign’s launch in February. It will extend to December. “We are now discussing with the airlines and hotels to offer discounts to encourage Thais to travel in the country particularly long-weekend holiday offers and specific travel packages to tap niche markets; such as, government officials, corporate incentives, students, retirees and sports enthusiasts.” he added.Thailand’s tourism should generate 2.41 trillion Baht in revenue this year, revised upwards from an earlier projection of 2.3 trillion Baht. Of that total, 1.56 trillion Baht will come from international markets and 0.85 trillion Baht from domestic travel.In 2015, Thailand generated 2.23 trillion Baht of which 1.44 trillion Baht came from international markets and 0.79 trillion Baht from the domestic sector.Source = Tourism Authority of Thailandlast_img read more

FHFA Mortgage Rates Index Finishes 2012 with Final Decline

first_img After steadily dropping throughout the year, mortgage rates closed out 2012 with one final monthly decline, according to the “”Federal Housing Finance Agency’s””:http://www.fhfa.gov/ (FHFA) December “”index””:http://www.fhfa.gov/webfiles/24921/MIRS_Jan_2013_final.pdf.[IMAGE]The contract rate on the composite of all mortgage loans (both fixed- and adjustable-rate) was 3.28 percent in December, down from 3.36 percent in November. The effective interest rate, which reflects the amortization of initial fees and charges, was 3.42 percent, down from 3.49 percent the previous month.The average interest rate for conventional, 30-year fixed-rate loans with conforming balances ($417,000 or less) fell 7 basis points to 3.47 percent in December, FHFA [COLUMN_BREAK]reported. These results reflect loans closed during the last week of December. Because the interest rate on a loan is determined 30 to 45 days before closure, the reported rates show market conditions in mid- to late-November.Meanwhile, the national average rate for the purchase of previously occupied homes by combined lenders–used as an index in some adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) contracts–was 3.29 percent in December, down 7 basis points from November.Initial fees and charges were 1.15 percent of the loan balance in December, up 7 basis points month-over-month. Fifteen percent of the purchase-money loans originated in December were “”no-point”” mortgages, down from 16 percent in November. According to FHFA’s data, the average term in December was 27.4 years, about the same as November, while the average loan-to-price ratio was 76.3 percent, up from 75.7 percent. The average loan amount was $274,100, an increase of $1,800 from November.FHFA’s data does not include loans insured or guaranteed by the “”Federal Housing Administration””:http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/federal_housing_administration (FHA) or “”Department of Veterans’ Affairs””:http://www.va.gov/ (VA). It also does not include refinances or balloon loans.

first_img Comments   Share   Cardinals fans should be familiar with one of the Ravenstop two receivers, but one they may not know could posejust as much of a challenge. Anquan Boldin — the receiver fans should know — andTorrey Smith are the Ravens’ top two targets this season. Each play a different style that could potentially causeproblems for the Cardinals secondary. Cornerback AJ Jefferson says Smith uses his speed whileBoldin will play a more physical style of game.

Running backRay Rice has 337 yards receiving this season, which ismore than Smith and only 57 short of Boldin’s 390.

2) of the estimated 68 million potential assesses – in other words those who should be complying with the GST law – just over 5 million have thus far filed returns; 3) the GST Council continues to meet and change tax rates and exemptions for different industries and 4) we are unable to draw any conclusions from the data thus far which could be a problem Let’s examine each one Representational image PTI That collections in at the first few months are likely to go up and down isn’t surprising; businesses and proprietors are still learning to deal with the administrative kinks filing processes and changes in rates and rules True there are and should be adjustments made in near-real time when we institute a new tax system But the numbers don’t add up to any sensible conclusions that can help us know if we are headed in the right direction Second people are not taking to voluntary compliance as quickly as the government hoped Some of that may be because certain types of businesses can now file quarterly rather than monthly returns But since the government has stopped matching the transactions on one side (as identified in the returns) with the other side leakage is almost inevitable This is an administrative problem and needs to be addressed very quickly Third changing tax rates and creating new exemptions also slows the process of estimating the exact tax liabilities and by extension what prospective collection estimates should be At some point the GST Council is going to have to take a stand and stop making changes in the rules as frequently as it does Exceptions and exemptions cannot be the rule Fourth there are many missing data points and lots of confusion Of the total collected nearly a third – roughly Rs 115000 crore collected as Integrated GST (taxes collected for transactions across state borders) has yet to be allocated; which brings us to a problem that is staring us in the face but with no clear direction of which way things will go It also presents a big political conundrum Clearly this is important for the government’s financial planning; how much of the Rs 360000 crores it has collected will it actually be able to retain to meet its spending needs Chances are that in the next two months – till January 2018 at least collections are going to decline further as input tax credit claims flood the system and lower net tax collections But most worrisome is the fog surrounding the fiscal deficit Usually at this time in the financial year economists and policy analysts have a good sense of the so-called run rate of the fiscal deficit; many of them are able to make reasonable forecasts of fiscal slippage if any The current lack of granular data – other than overall collection figures which are also subject to revision – raises serious concerns about the government’s actual fiscal position Finance minister Arun Jaitley has committed his government to meet that target; that said if tax collections do not meet expectations (most states estimated that collections would grow by about 14 percent) then curtailing expenditure becomes the only way out What happens to public investment that has been the principal growth driver thus far Even if Jaitley wanted to allow a small fiscal slippage he can’t: When Moody’s raised India’s credit rating an event that the BJP celebrated rather noisily the credit rating agency also tied his hands The government cannot dare to allow any slippage on the fiscal deficit target even if that means sacrificing economic growth And that is as politically unpalatable with national elections due in another 17 months Here’s another reason GST data is as much about politics as economic growth For consumers the GST is a sales tax no matter what they call it and a very visibly high one at 18 per cent on average Before the GST made its appearance all indirect taxes were taxes on business and despite the cascading effects they remained invisible to ordinary people As always other country examples are illuminating Canada introduced the GST in 1991 The Conservative party – then in power – paid a heavy price in the 1993 election the first after the GST was introduced In what was probably the most dramatic electoral collapse of a political party in a stable democratic country the Conservatives were virtually eliminated from Parliament falling from a majority of 169 seats to just two elected members The Liberal party that won the elections had campaigned intensely against the GST but went out and implemented it anyway by changing its name There are few better examples of the triumph of politics By: IANS | Washington | Updated: June 27 2017 10:54 am NASA said that it has no pending announcement regarding extraterrestrial life following a wave of media reports that it was about to announce the evidence of alien life (Source: NASA) (Representational Image) Related News US space agency NASA said that it has no pending announcement regarding extraterrestrial life following a wave of media reports that it was about to announce the evidence of alien life?who has a journalism and mass communication degree from Madras Christian College.

unauthorised buildings in its residential zones (Representational Image) Related News The Bombay High Court’s Friday order vacating the stay on cluster re-development projects in Navi Mumbai Thane and suburban areas of Mumbai has been welcomed by various stakeholders While bureaucrats said the decision would aid in development of congested areas builders said that the cluster re-development of buildings would improve the lives of many who have had to continue living in dilapidated structures owing to the stay order The repercussions of the High Court order will be more on Thane owing to the large number of old and in some cases unauthorised buildings in its residential zones Expressing relief over the decision Thane Municipal Commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal said civic officials had put in a lot of effort to come up with a detailed impact assessment report prepared considering every eventuality “ It is a big achievement for the TMC since it was the first corporation to submit the impact assessment report to the state government After the government resolution is issued we will form a study team to help with the implementation of the cluster development policy” Jaiswal said According to the policy an FSI of four or double the existing whichever is higher will be adopted for such projects Jaiswal added that the policy would bring relief primarily to the congested areas of the city especially the haphazard and dilapidated buildings and some slums Many builders pointed out that cluster re-development was the only solution for many dilapidated buildings that stand on small plots Kailash Agarwal chairperson of One Avigna Park a real estate firm said “It (the HC order) is very good news since cluster re-development is essential for old buildings that have been unable to undergo re-development A Supreme Court ruling mandates that depending on the size of the plot 8-25 per cent of its area has to be reserved for a recreation ground Due to this re-development is impossible in small plots and many projects are halted because of it” he said Agarwal added that the state government should also amend the rule that mandates consent of 70 per cent of the residents before a redevelopment project can be taken up “There are always some residents who will hold up the re-development since they either want more money or area The government should bring down the requirement to 51 per cent instead” he said Rajan Bandelkar the managing director of Raunak Group as well as the vice-president of National Real Estate Development Council lauded the High Court’s decision “This policy will help regularise large number of illegal buildings especially in Thane just as it has done so in countries such as China Majority of the buildings are dilapidated and are not being developed because of the restrictions This will help improve the quality of life of the residents living in such buildings” he said After the High Court’s decision was pronounced on Friday Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis took to Twitter to express his views His posts said that 30-year-old buildings would be covered under the cluster re-development scheme and 50 per cent of slum area would
