Many have and will continue to find the lord here, for as long as the Lord wills it!
And that my Brother means you are a blessing to those who have found their way out of Darkness

Their are others, but i have to go, be back later, God Willing!

EU warns Israel not to impose 'collective punishment' in Gaza
By Amos Harel and Avi Issacharoff, Haaretz Correspondents

The European Union cautioned Israel on Monday against imposing "collective punishment" against the 1.5 million Palestinians in the Gaza Strip by cutting of delivery of fuel supplies to the territory.

The protest came one day after Israel began reducing fuel supplies as part of a new sanctions policy in what Israel says is a response to Palestinian rocket fire on Israeli towns from the Hamas-controlled coastal enclave.

"I think collective punishment is never a solution," Benita Ferrero-Waldner, the EU's commissioner for external relations, told reporters in Jerusalem.

She said she would raise the issue in meetings with Israeli leaders during her visit.

Israel continues to allow money into the Gaza Strip from the West Bank despite increased sanctions, including the fuel reductions, on the Strip. Israel agreed last week to another shipment of funds into Gaza via the Erez crossing.

Security forces said the money was intended for salaries Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has committed to pay.

The tens of millions of shekels will pay tens of thousands of PA workers and Fatah activists' salaries. Hamas has thus far not blocked the transfer.

The Gaza Strip is experiencing a dwindling of shekels following the shutdown of some Israeli banks and the desire of others to stop activities in Gaza. Last week the Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer asked Bank Hapoalim to postpone by two months its intention to stop activity in the Strip.

Finance Minister Roni Bar-On and his Egyptian counterpart, Youssef Boutros-Ghali, suggested at an International Monetary Fund meeting in Washington last week that Israel could transfer shekels to banks in Egypt for transfer to Gaza. This would address the concerns of Israeli banks that the funds they transfer would reach terror organizations.

However security officials said recently that they opposed the plan because they would lose all control over the transfers and the money would reach the terror organizations indirectly.

Israel began Sunday to decrease its fuel supply to the Gaza Strip as part of its policy to intensify sanctions against the Hamas government.

The plan to disrupt the electricity supply to Gaza has not yet been implemented in light of a petition to the High Court of Justice Sunday by the Arab-Israeli legal advocacy center Adalah against the disruption.

The Palestinian Fuel Authority in the Gaza Strip reported Sunday that the shortfall in fuel supplies was noticeable. According to the authority, the supply of diesel has been cut from a normal level of 350,000 liters per day to 200,000 liters. Similarly, the supply of gasoline, which normally stands at 150,000 liters per day, has dropped to about 90,000 liters. Ahmed Ali, deputy chairman of the Fuel Authority, told the press Sunday that shortages would be felt in a few days, since there was sufficient fuel in Gaza Strip storage for another four days. However, Palestinians joined long lines Sunday to stock up on fuel before the imminent shortages.

Dor Alon, the Israeli firm supplying fuel to the Palestinians, acknowledged it had cut down on diesel and gasoline to the Gaza Strip on instructions from the defense establishment.

Next week, another reduction will go into effect. The Sufa crossing in the southern Gaza Strip was also closed down Sunday for an unlimited period. The passage had been operating since the Hamas takeover of the Strip in June instead of the Karni crossing that was closed down due to terror alerts. Most of the merchandise moved to the Gaza
Strip  about 100 to 120 truckloads a day went through the Sufa crossing.

Merchandise will now be able to enter the Gaza Strip only at Kerem Shalom, which has a much smaller capacity of up to 55 trucks a day.

EU greenlights expansion of 'no borders' area on December 21 Thu Nov 8, 1:59 PM ET
 
BRUSSELS (AFP) - European Union interior ministers approved Thursday the entry of nine new countries into Europe's passport-free Schengen area on December 21, freeing up travel and giving a boost to economic activity.

 
"The member states concerned are sufficiently prepared," the ministers said a document laying out conclusions of their talks in Brussels.

The move, seen as an early Christmas present, will bring an end to long queues of people and road freight at borders at a peak travel time, a problem which has grown into a priority since the countries joined the EU in 2004.

Sea and land border controls between the current 15 Schengen area nations and the nine -- Malta plus eight Central and East European countries -- will end after midnight on December 20.

Air travel is to be opened up from March 30.

Travellers will be able to visit the entire Schengen area, from Tallin in Estonia south to Lisbon in Portugal and east to Budapest, Hungary, with a single visa.

"It's a symbol to the new (EU) member states that they are no longer living behind the Iron Curtain," German Interior Minister Wolfgang Schauble told reporters, on the sidelines of the EU meeting.

As an indicator of what effect the move will have, a German official said that 83 million people crossed his country's border with Poland from January to September, while 91 million people crossed the German-Czech border.

At the moment the Schengen treaty, which abolished border checks between its members, counts all the oldest EU members except Britain and Ireland, plus non-EU nations Norway and Iceland.

The decision to expand it was taken following a detailed assessment carried out over two years.

The first of the two conditions needed for joining was met by the nine in early September when the countries plugged into an electronic database that allows authorities to swap details on wanted people, objects or vehicles.

For the second condition, concerning the security of their borders with non-EU countries, experts have over the last year inspected the controls and described them as "satisfying".

The European Parliament must also give its opinion on the entry of the nine -- the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia -- but this is considered a formality.

The ministers will then rubber stamp the decision in December.

Bulgaria, Cyprus, Romania and Switzerland, the latter which signed an agreement on its association with the Schengen bloc in 2004, are expected to fully join the border-free zone in coming years.

Apart from easing travel restrictions, the Schengen treaty improves cooperation between police forces, allowing hot-pursuit of criminals into a member country as well as cross-border surveillance of suspects.

 EU seeks leadership trio for new institutions By Yves Clarisse
Mon Nov 5, 12:08 PM ET
 


BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Even before European Union leaders sign a treaty reforming the bloc's institutions next month, speculation is rife in Brussels about who will take the three key leadership jobs in the new EU structure from 2009.
 
The reform treaty provides for a long-term president of the European Council of national leaders, appointed for a renewable two-and-a-half year term, a strengthened foreign policy chief at the head of an EU foreign service, and a president of the executive European Commission.

Diplomats say Jose Manuel Barroso, the centre-right former Portuguese prime minister, has a good chance of a second term as Commission president in 2009 thanks to the backing of France and Germany, whose previous leaders were cool towards him.

Barroso, 51, has implemented a relatively modest vision of the EU executive's role, preserving the single market, reducing new legislation to a trickle, axing some old regulations and focusing on the economy and environment rather than on politics.

A senior Commission official called Barroso's ambition for a second five-year term "the worst kept secret in Brussels."

Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker, 53, the EU's longest-serving leader, has emerged as favorite for the new job of president of the European Council, with backing from Paris, Berlin and smaller EU states -- if he wants it, diplomats say.

The president would prepare and chair the bloc's four annual summits and be the EU's top face on the world stage.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy cited both Juncker and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair as good candidates for the post last month, but diplomats say Blair, 54, would face hurdles because of Britain's semi-detached membership of the EU.


"Britain is not in the euro, not in Schengen (zone of borderless travel), not in the Charter of Fundamental Rights and now it has opted out of police and judicial cooperation," one senior diplomat said. "That's a lot, and when you realize that Blair wanted these new exceptions, it's too much."

By contrast, Juncker already chairs the Eurogroup of finance ministers of the 13 member states that share the single currency and has been in the thick of every EU compromise since he became head of government in 1995.

The chain-smoking Christian Democrat, who bridges most EU political divides but is seen by London as too much of a European federalist, chose to stay in Luxembourg rather than seek the Commission presidency in 2004.

If two moderate conservatives from small countries get two of the top jobs, the third member of the leadership triangle is likely to be a socialist from a bigger member state, for reasons of political and geographical balance.

That description fits perfectly with Javier Solana, the EU's current foreign policy chief, who is said by diplomats to be keen to stay on, although he will turn 67 in July 2009 and will have been in the job for a decade.

Solana, a former Spanish foreign minister and NATO chief, has built up the role through patient diplomacy, deferring to the big EU nations and staying onside with the United States.

EU diplomats said he might stay on as a bridge for a few months until a new European Commission is appointed in late 2009, but a new face is likely to take over after that.

Among possible contenders are former German foreign minister Joschka Fischer, Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt, respected but perhaps too outspoken for some, and current EU enlargement chief, Olli Rehn of Finland. But none is a socialist.

If Juncker goes to the European Council, diplomats say it will be hard to find a stable successor as Eurogroup chairman, an increasingly important role. Few euro zone finance ministers are guaranteed his longevity in domestic office.

If neither Juncker nor Blair runs, Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern, who proved a skilled negotiator during Dublin's 2004 EU presidency, is seen by some EU officials as a possible compromise candidate.
