The end of King Bibi? Indicted Netanyahu fights for future
Benjamin Netanyahu's indictment on corruption charges prompted speculation Friday that the end of his decade-long tenure was nigh, though several key allies expressed support for the beleaguered Israeli premier. After months of speculation Avichai Mandelblit's decision was the worst possible outcome for Netanyahu, hitting him with the most serious charges. Israel's longest-serving premier swiftly hit back, vowing to fight on and accusing the police and legal system of bias against the right-wing in an often angry speech.

Christian group wrote legislation eerily similar to Ohio religious liberty bill
Critics suspect hand of Project Blitz in draft passed by Ohio house which they fear could let students' religious beliefs trump scienceThe draft law says a teacher ‘shall not penalize or reward a student based on the religious content of a student's work' - language strikingly similar to Project Blitz's model legislation. Photograph: Justin Lane/EPAAn Ohio state bill which could allow students' religious beliefs to trump science-based facts is almost identical to model legislation backed by an evangelical, anti-gay Christian group.The Student Religious Liberties Act, which passed the Ohio house last week, instructs schools to neither "penalize or reward" students on the basis of their religious speech. It also stipulates schools must provide opportunities for religious expression "in the same manner and to the same extent" as secular speech. Critics argue the bill would provide protect students from bad grades based on religion.The bill's backers deny it is connected to the group, called Project Blitz but the bill has nearly identical language to the model legislation backed by Project Blitz in their 2018-2019 "playbook".While student religious liberties bills existed before Project Blitz, its inclusion in a playbook by groups whose goal is to inject religion into law shows the priority they place on the matter. By contrast, many mainstream civil rights groups have lined up against the bill.Project Blitz model legislation says: "A student may not be penalized or rewarde

Putin hands awards to widows of men killed in mysterious military test
Russian President Vladimir Putin has handed top state awards to the widows of five scientists killed in an accident while testing what he called an advanced weapons system without equal in the world. The five men died on Aug. 8 in what their employer, state nuclear agency Rosatom, said was an accident during a rocket test on a sea platform off northern Russia, an incident which caused radiation levels in the surrounding area to briefly spike. Thomas DiNanno, a senior U.S. State Department official, said last month that Washington had determined that the explosion was the result of a nuclear reaction which occurred during the recovery of a Russian nuclear-powered cruise missile after a failed test.

Saudi Arabia's Oil Heartland Is Calm. That's Bad News for Iran
(Bloomberg) -- At a cultural gathering in the region of Qatif in Saudi Arabia's oil-rich east, a poet recited some of his work before taking questions. The audience of 80 or so people was engaged and smiling, while a man quietly served coffee and tea in espresso-sized paper cups.The scene of relaxed conviviality on a Monday evening in November might have been anywhere, save for the white thobes worn by the men, the women in mainly black abaya cloaks and the smell of cardamom in the coffee. But the event stood out for where and when it was, rather than what it was.Qatif is an area inhabited mainly by Shiites, who make up roughly 15 percent of the Saudi population and whose branch of Islam is most identified with Iran. The poet was a Sunni, the sect that dominates the kingdom.  The organizers said they had hosted Sunnis before, yet the atmosphere during a tense period for Saudi-Iranian relations showed how much Saudi Arabia has changed over the past three years. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the leader and heir, is trying to fashion a kingdom underpinned by national identity rather than the traditional Wahhabi religious conservatism that defined society for generations. He has sought to crush any dissent against that new narrative.Read More: Where Have All the Wahhabis Gone?As a proxy war rages with Iran, there's been none of the usual tightening of security around Shiite areas in Eastern Province.

Analysis: Mountain of impeachment evidence beyond dispute
After two weeks of riveting public hearings in the House impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, there is a mountain of evidence that is now beyond dispute. Trump explicitly ordered U.S. government officials to work with his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani on matters related to Ukraine, a country deeply dependent on Washington's help to fend off Russian aggression. The president pushed Ukraine to launch investigations into political rivals, leaning on a discredited conspiracy theory his own advisers disputed.

JERUSALEM— Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not react with equanimity when, after three years of investigations, the indictments finally came. Railing at the Israeli public on television, with no press allowed, Netanyahu savaged Israel's police and judiciary and all but called for insurrection, repeatedly demanding that "the investigators be investigated!"As he spoke, the same words were tweeted from his official account. "They never were pursuing the truth!" an ashen Netanyahu yelled. "They were pursuing me!"Netanyahu Lost. His Enemies Won.
