MERKEL BACKS MACRON ON FORMATION OF EU ARMY
19 NOV (SOURCE: INDEPENDENT) -The European Commission has said it is “delighted” that the leaders of France and Germany have backed the creation of a “real” EU army.

ISRAEL-HAMAS CEASE-FIRE COULD PUSH ISRAEL TOWARDS EARLY ELECTIONS
15 NOV 2018 (SOURCE: AP) – Israel’s defense minister on Wednesday abruptly resigned to protest a new cease-fire with Hamas militants in Gaza, throwing the government into turmoil and pushing the country toward an early election. Avigdor Lieberman’s decision was ostensibly a show of anger over Tuesday’s informal truce with Israel’s Hamas enemies. But in many ways, it was the opening round of a new political campaign. His defection leaves Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with the narrowest of parliamentary majorities — only 61 of 120 seats in his coalition. In theory, Netanyahu can continue to govern until parliamentary elections scheduled for a year from now. But with another coalition rival, Naftali Bennett, threatening to leave the coalition if he doesn’t get the defense portfolio, the days of Netanyahu’s government appear numbered.

THE REBRANDING OF ISLAM: A FORECAST OF A CHANGING FAITH
5 OCTOBER 2018 – Islam is at a cross-roads and secular Muslim voices calling for a rebranding of Islam have increased, become louder, stronger and – more importantly – more authoritative. The call is no longer to ‘reinvent’ Islam but to ‘rebrand’ the religion. It is no longer about transforming what Muslims believe on the inside – it has now become a matter of changing what non-Muslims perceive from the outside.
