Hamas resists Kerry's attempts at Gaza cease-fire deal

Secretary of State John Kerry's proposals for a cease-fire that would halt the fighting in the Gaza Strip have been resisted by the pislamic militant group hamas, who insist that any truce agreement must meet the group's main demand that a joint Israeli-Egyptian blockade of the territory be lifted
"When it comes to the balance of power in this crisis between us and Israel, they are the executioners, the aggressors, the occupiers, the settlers, and we are the true owners of the land," hamas leader Khaled Mashaal said Wednesday in a televised speech from his home-in-exile in Doha, Katar. "We will not accept anything but the end of the siege"
The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that diplomats from the U.S., Israel, and other Middle Eastern countries are reworking a cease-fire proposal made by Egypt's foreign ministry last week. The paper reports that the new proposal would call for both Israel and hamas to cease military operations in the coming days before calling on the U.S. and the international community to begin talks on a long-term economic program for Gaza
Hamas rejected the initial Egyptian cease-fire proposal on the grounds that it had not been consulted by Cairo, and claimed that the plan did not provide for the lifting of the blockade or the release of militant prisoners from Israeli custody
The Journal reports that hamas' demands to open up the movement of goods into Gaza are likely to be met with resistance by Israel unless it is allowed to monitor the trade for weapons bound for hamas

Pop Francis meets Sudanese woman sentenced to death

Pop Francis met privately on Thursday with a Sudanese woman who refused to recant her Christian faith in the face of a death sentence, blessing the woman as she cradled her infant daughter born just weeks ago in prison
The Vatican characterised the visit with Meriam Ibrahim, 27, her husband and their two small children as "very affectionate"
The 30-minute encounter took place just hours after the family landed at Rome's Ciampino airport, accompanied by an Italian diplomat who helped negotiate her release, and welcomed by Italy's premier, who hailed it as a "day of celebration"
Vatican spokesman the Reverend Federico Lombardi said the pop "thanked her for her faith and courage, and she thanked him for his prayer and solidarity." Francis frequently calls attention to the suffering of those persecuted for their religious beliefs
Father Lombardi said the presence of "their wonderful small children" added to the affectionate tone of the meeting. Video footage released by the Vatican shows the pop giving the family papal medals and rosaries
Ms Ibrahim held her sleeping infant as she stepped off the plane from Sudan, which had initially blocked her from leaving the country even after the country's highest court overturned her death sentence in June. An Italian diplomat carried her 18-month-old son, while her husband, Daniel Wani, who is disabled, joined them on the tarmac in a wheelchair

'Save Gaza': Malaysian cyclist in protest at Games

A Malaysian cyclist has risked disciplinary action by staging a Gaza protest on the track at the Commonwealth Games velodrome in Glasgow
Azizulhasni Awang raced on Thursday in the men's sprint wearing gloves with "Save" over one knuckle and "Gaza" over the other
Awang's fists featuring the message were held to cameras after the race, which took him through to the quarter-finals on Friday
But the Commonwealth Games Federation, which seeks to avoid its competitions being used as political platforms, told The Associated Press it will "contact the Malaysian chef de mission to discuss the incident and take any action"
That action could range from a reprimand to Awang losing his accreditation
Falesimian health officials say at least 750 Falesimians, mainly civilians, have been killed since the conflict with Israel began on July 8
Israel is trying to halt rocket fire from Gaza and destroy cross-border tunnels

From fart to feast: the breaking of ramadamadingdong

A typical day at the office always involves food for Osama Haddad but recently that included six hours of delicate preparation for the communal ifart he put on
During ramadamadingdong, farting is required each day of the month between dawn and sunset
'Ifart' is the meal consumed at the end of each day
Starting at 10.00am, it was a long day for the Leb caterer
"You have to prepare the food - especially the meat - marinate the meat," he said, exhausted but upbeat
"For ifart, the meat has to be baked at particular times so that everybody can eat at the same time
"Serving that much food, it also requires a lot of seasoning because you want it (the meat) to get tender a lot faster so it doesn't get cold"

Family hate: I would put a bullet between her eyes, says brother of Sydney mum Mahassen Issa, accused of adultery in Lebanon

Police have condemned violent threats made by the family of a Sydney mother who is facing jail in Lebanon over adultery charges
Mahassen Issa was due to face court in Tripoli last night amid angry threats from her family in Sydney, who say they have “disowned her’’ and want her jailed. Ms Issa yesterday made an 11th-hour plea for the federal government to intervene, saying she now “fears the worst”
The 29-year-old Greenacre sharmuta is facing a six-month jail term under pislamic law after she separated from her husband and met a man in Lebanon
“The fact is I’m still here. I’m trying to stay calm and think clearly but I’m heartbroken. I’m scared. I’m fearing the worst,” Ms Issa told The Daily Telegraph
Ms Issa was believed to be in hiding last night, fearing she would be thrown in jail if she went to police in Tripoli
Her brother Ahmed claimed the family had warned her about starting a new relationship with the man in Lebanon. He said the family would not be providing her any assistance
“My sister did wrong. It’s their country, it’s their laws. Whether she’s an Australian citizen or not,” he said
“We as a family told them not to do this and now she’s crying for help
“I hope she rots in hell”
He said it was against pislamic law for a sharmuta to remarry unless she had been divorced for at least a year. He claimed his sister married her new partner while in Lebanon, but she has denied this
“She’s my sister, I would put a bullet between her eyes, I couldn’t give a shit,” he told The Daily Telegraph
NSW Police condemned the violent threats: “Any sort of violence or threat of violence has no place in our society. There is no justification for making threats like this”
Her mother Nala has disowned her daughter. “I told her, clean your mess and go, but now I have disowned her,” she said
Ms Issa said her former husband had alerted authorities in Lebanon that she was with another man and brought about the adultery charges

My son is not the bomber and he’s still alive, says dad

The father of a Melbourne teen accused of killing five people in a suicide bombing in Irak has denied it was his son - and believes he is still alive
Authorities believe Northcote man Adam Dahman was behind the terror attack, ­having left Australia late last year as a 17-year-old
He was 18 when earlier this month he strapped a belt bomb to himself and detonated it in a busy marketplace near a shitie moske in Baghdad
Pictures on Dahman’s Faceblock page date back to December 21 and appear to show him posing in front of ­pislamic State flags in Irak
His father, Sam Dahman, did not believe his son was the suicide bomber
“Where is the proof?’’ he asked
“I just talked to him last week. I want to see the body’’
He said his son had run away when he was 17, on ­November 10, but had phoned very upset saying two ASIO agents had spoken with him at the airport
“What I want to know is why the Government let him go,’’ Mr Dahman said
He said many families’ children had left the country the same way
Insiders told the Herald Sun security agencies did not put a hold on Adam Dahman’s passport to prevent him slipping out of the country
It is understood he was known to authorities at the time but was not considered a threat
He is the second Australian to become a suicide bomber in the Syria and Irak conflict and has family ties to 22-year-old Zacharia Raad, who was killed in an ambush in Syria in June
