National Endowment for Empire

National Endowment for Empire

“Democracy” may be the most loosely defined word
in the English language today. Gone are the
Hitler and Stalin-like revilers of democracy.
Now it’s just about everybody’s favorite form of
government, though there are markedly differing
views on what exactly it is. The
Washington-based National Endowment for
Democracy provides one example. Founded in 1983
to enhance US foreign policy by teaching aspects
of democracy abroad, it now spends 100 million
dollars a year of American taxpayers’ money on
projects that are not always appreciated by
recipients who complain that they are not so
much democratic as interventionist. They may
seek a regime change that is not desired by the
people who are supposed to benefit.


Israeli court orders release of Muhammad Abu Khudair murder suspects

Israeli court orders release of Muhammad Abu Khudair murder suspects

The Israeli daily Haaretz published additional details on Thursday:

Three of the six Jews suspected of being involved in the kidnapping
and murder of 16-year-old Shoafat resident Mohammed Abu Khdeir last week
will be released from custody today, the Petah Tikva Magistrate’s Court
ruled Wednesday.

The three are not suspected of the murder itself but of being part of
the cell that committed it. The police and Shin Bet security service
believe the murder was committed by the three main suspects – a
30-year-old man from a community near Jerusalem and two minors from the
capital [sic].
