Jerusalem: US vetoes UN resolution rejecting Trump's declaration

The US has vetoed a draft UN Security Council resolution rejecting President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The text put forward by Egypt affirmed that any decisions on the status of Jerusalem had "no legal effect, are null and void and must be rescinded ".

The 14 other members of the council voted in favour of the motion.

The US permanent representative, Nikki Haley, described it as an "insult" and warned that it would not be forgotten.

Israel arrests Palestinian teen who forced them off her land
December 19, 2017

A 16-year-old Palestinian girl was arrested early this morning after a video of her telling Israeli soldiers to leave her property went viral...
The video, filmed amid ongoing protests last Friday, shows Tamimi along with two other women, telling two armed Israeli soldiers to remove themselves from her property. Israeli soldiers had reportedly shot at children throwing stones from a house in the neighbourhood and prevented the family from re-entering their home.

A 16-year-old Palestinian girl was arrested early this morning after a video of her telling Israeli soldiers to leave her property went viral, according to Haaretz.

Female Border Police and Israeli occupation forces took Ahed Tamimi from her home in Nabi Saleh, near occupied Ramallah, and was taken to be questioned, the army said in a statement.

The video, filmed amid ongoing protests last Friday, shows Tamimi along with two other women, telling two armed Israeli soldiers to remove themselves from her property. Israeli soldiers had reportedly shot at children throwing stones from a house in the neighbourhood and prevented the family from re-entering their home. Neighbours joined the scene in an attempt to force the soldiers to leave.

After they refuse, Tamimi can be seen attempting to push the soldiers off her land. They later detain her for assaulting military officers, a crime which carries up to seven years imprisonment.

Human rights groups and activists have since launched the #FreeAhed campaign online.

Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett told Army Radio this morning that he believed the young girls in the video “should finish their lives in prison”.

Israeli occupation forces have arrested 430 Palestinians and wounded more than 3,400 others in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem and the besieged Gaza Strip since US President Donald Trump announced his decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Another technological breakthrough made in the European Alps:

A Swiss cable/car maker installed the world's latest and flashiest cable/car to the Bayerische Zugspitze. The cable car travels from the bottom station to the top over 1700 meters through nothing but thin air, suspended on sturdy steel cables, and reaches the new Zugspitze terminus located on 3100 meters above sea level.

Imagine how they brought all the equipment to that mountop!
