YPN News 12-23-2017
Jeff: Welcome to another edition of YPN News, Bring you news that relates to Bible Prophecy and foretold by Yisrayl Hawkins. Well in the news this week, more reaction and international outcry regarding U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to make Jerusalem the capital of Israel. We’ll have those reports. Also a new type of pirate in the neighborhood. We’ll have that report. And the city of Mosul, which was recently what they call liberated, but we’ll see at quite a cost to civilians. But first…
Jeff: When you see the word “natural” on a package you may think a product is safe. That’s what Blain Talbot’s mom Corina thought when she gave her son Hyland’s Teething Tablets to soothe his aching gums. But a change for the worse came over her baby, when he started to have seizures. When the tablets ran out the seizures stopped.
Caton: Today Blain is a healthy four year old, but the product his mother had given him was later recalled by the FDA because it contained harmful levels of Belladonna, a plant based poison, which has been linked to 10 children’s deaths and over 400 more children being injured. While the company maintains there is no scientific link between the seizures and their product, the FDA plans to start cracking down on homeopathic products. Which of course puts a lot of other manufacturers and people who use those kinds of products kind of on the edge wondering what moves the FDA is going to take regarding this.
Jeff: Currently there are no regulations on homeopathic products, which is a $3 billion industry. The number one targets for the FDA are what they consider high risk products. Those are described as ones given by injection, used by children and the elderly. Also products marketed for cancer, heart disease, opioid and alcohol addictions will be under scrutiny.
Caton: However The Natural Products Association (NPA) is fighting back in a statement they explained, “…Homeopathic products have been used safely since the 1700’s, and we’re sure the agency will factor that into any regulatory decisions…” The FDA is taking input on their new approach for 90 days.
Jeff: From young women in golf carts to UPS delivery men, the range of thieves stealing packages is broad. More and more ‘Porch Pirates’ as they are now called are taking packages delivered to private homes. While many of the thieves think that they are going unnoticed, we live in a world of high tech security and surveillance which is catching the criminals on camera.
Caton: That’s right. One neighborhood social network, called Next Door, reported package theft complaints are up not 10 or 100, but 500% for 2017. And the median price of a stolen package is $250. But law enforcement is cracking down on the problem, having devoted some of their resources porch pirating alone. So they are having to draw off of what they’re doing to fight crime in other ways to deal with this one problem.
Jeff: Shows you how big of a problem it’s really becoming if they have to take some of their force and just concentrate specifically on that one issue. In Boston police recovered dozens of stolen Amazon packages in one week. In Ohio one prosecutor took to Facebook posting this to any would be porch pirates, “We have placed bait packages throughout the city,” indicating there is a GPS tracker inside each package, warning, “If you steal…you will be arrested.” In Burbank, California one arrest was made.
Caton: While the victims of these thefts are angry at the violation of their personal property, there is little they can do but hope those responsible are caught and their packages returned. Consumer experts have suggested several steps to take to protect your deliveries. One, have all packages delivered to a secure location, like a neighbor’s home, local grocery store, or your office. Two: use smart electronics like doorbells with built-in camera, require a signature for delivery or pick-up the package yourself at your carriers local delivery office.
Jeff: Well from stealing packages to stealing hope…As tears role down her face a refugee mother of eight tells of the new reality she is facing. She has been forced to take in her sisters two children. They are orphans from Cameroon. Their father was killed in the fighting there and their mother died just a few days later of a heart attack. While she struggled to take care of her own children the additional children will make it even harder.
Caton: There are over 30,000 refugees in Southern Nigeria now which are being cared for by the Nigerian Refugee Agency as well as a few non-governmental organizations. The refugees tell reporters they have little to eat and no proper shelter. After witnessing the violence in Cameroon, one young women fled for her life and the safety of her unborn child. Even though she was eight months pregnant she walked for three days, finally reaching Nigeria. Her baby, now born faces an uncertain future.
Jeff: In one camp on the hills of Obudu, the majority of the 500 displaced are women and children. As they look down the mountain towards Cameroon, they know they have much to endure before they can even think about making the journey back home. I can only imagine Caton what that’s like. You have your whole life completely turned upside down having to flee from the fighting and so forth and just not having any certainty of the future.
Caton: Yeah and evening with the hope of going back home, what are they going to go back to? Homes destroyed, family members lost, sons killed. It kind a looks bleak from their point of view right now either way it goes. Well some are calling it, answered prayers, but others are saying there is another human rights crisis taking place. Since Rodrigo Duterte was elected President of the Philippines he has been living up to his campaign promise of fighting a violent war on the drug addicts and the drug dealers who supply them. In the video you are about to see, we must warn you there is some graphic violent content. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=TRT+World%2c+Duterte+DRug+war&&view=detail&mid=10201A47C292522EB32610201A47C292522EB326&&FORM=VDRVRV
Jeff: Caton, you have to wonder, what really is the difference from those selling drugs that cause death or going out and killing those who sell the drugs or use drugs? To me it seems like either way death is the result. It would seem that educating the citizens there would be a much better idea in stopping that problem than just going out and having so much murder and death.
Caton: Right, educating the citizens and the leaders as well.
Jeff: Well there is new information surfacing concerning the number of citizens killed during the coalition strikes in Mosul. We have Larry McGee following the story for us. Larry what are the numbers looking like now on the civilian casualties?
Larry: The estimates now being provided by AP and various NGO’s, suggest that the actual numbers may be ten times as much as that previously reported- that’s ten times as many civilians as that initially stated by the US and other agencies. The actual number being reported at present is 11,000, who lost their lives during the nine month operation allegedly intended to bring liberty to the city of Mosul.
The tragedy continues to worsen; as the amount of dead continues to increase- even by collateral means, such as undetonated bombs exploding as children play nearby. The new estimates are causing some to recall earlier reports concerning the air in the city of Mosul, which is said to be laden and heavy with the sickening stench of rotting corpses and decomposing bodies. The city, which once housed 2 million people, has now been almost completely leveled…
The level of tension and animosity in the United Nations is rising, as 129 nations voted to condemn the US’ recent decision to move its Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem- and officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. U.S. Ambassador, Nikki Haley came out swinging after the vote, stating that, “The United States will remember this day, in which it was singled out for attack in the General Assembly, for the very act of exercising [its] right as a sovereign nation.” The Ambassador went on to say that “The U.S. will remember, when so many countries come calling on America- as they so often do,” she stated, “to pay even more, and to use America’s influence for their benefit.”
On the list of those who condemned the move were major players and supposed U.S. allies such as Britain, France, and Japan; and there were five nations which supported America in the vote, those were Guatemala, Honduras, the Marshal Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, and Togo. That collection of supporters are reported to be the recipients of $680 million in U.S. aid. President Trump commented in a recent meeting that the UN takes hundreds of millions of U.S. dollars and then votes against them. The President said the U.S. is watching those votes, and America will save a lot of money. Mr. Trump punctuated that comment by saying that, “[America] does’t care.” The issue, is that previous American Presidents refrained from recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel to allow for negotiating space for Palestine, who would like to establish East Jerusalem as capital of an independent Palestinian state. The State Department says the threat to withdraw funding from nations who are perceived as having crossed the Trump administration is no joke, and is real; but commentators say, the UN’s recent vote, is an indication that many member states believe the current administration is more bark than bite…For YPN News, I’m Larry McGee. Caton, Jeff…back to you.
Caton: Wow, definitely seems like there’s bitterness and disunity among the nations regarding this decision that President Trump made, regarding Jerusalem being the capital of Israel. Well the U.S. blocked a United Nations Security Council vote Monday on a resolution drafted by Egypt that called on all states to refrain from building diplomatic embassy’s in Jerusalem. The Veto power exercised by the United States hasn’t been used in over 6 years, but clearly draws a line between the U.S. and the rest of the permanent Council members. Let’s take a look at this video.
Jeff: Well Caton, that’s not the only voting going on. A 2/3 vote against the U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The Palestinian foreign minister of Palestine said that Jerusalem would be the capital of a Palestinian state as he spoke to the members of the UN. Riyad Al Maliki said in his address, “We meet today not because of any animosity towards the US but because of its decision which constitutes an aggression on the genuine and natural rights of the Palestinian people to the city of Jerusalem.”
The Israeli ambassador held up a 2,000 year old coin as evidence of Israel’s claim to the city saying that it (referring to the coin) proves the ancient connection of the Jews to the city of Jerusalem. Togo, Honduras and Guatemala joined the 6 nations that had voted against a similar resolution, affirming Jerusalem’s status last month. Regarding the vote, the number of abstentions increased from 9 to 35. This move is possibly a result of the threats made by the U.S. to retaliate financially against those in favor.
Jeff: The Turkish foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu said to the assembly, “This is bullying and chamber will not vow to do that. It is unethical to think that the worth, any dignity of member -states are for sale. Let me put it this way, we will not be intimidated, you can be strong but this doesn’t make you right,” he concluded. U.S. Ambassador, Nikki Haley responded to the vote by saying, “the United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for an attack for the very act of exercising our right as a sovereign nation. We will remember it when we are called upon to make the world’s largest contribution to the United Nations.”
Caton: Sounds like a ‘tit-for-tat’ there. Well Jeff, there are questions now about the future of U.S. led negotiation, particularly since the Palestinians said that they would not talk to the U.S. representatives in the light of President Trump’s decision.
Jeff: Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas said in an address to Muslim leaders in an emergency leaders in Istanbul that the U.S. should no longer play a role in Middle East talks. He also said that President Trump’s decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is a crime and that he was giving away the city like it belongs to the states. The meeting was hosted by the Turkish President, who’s called the Arab response so far, weak.
Caton: Israel captured Arab east Jerusalem in 1967 and later annexed it. An action not recognized by the internationally. Turkey is urging Muslim nations to pressure the world into recognizing east Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state. Erdogan told leaders, Trump’s decision was a reward for Israeli actions including occupation, settlement construction and land seizure.
Jeff: Erdogan also said that Palestine’s incorporation process to international accords and institutions should be accelerated. As Islam countries we must put forward a more strong command and a stronger will regarding full cooperation of the Palestinian state in the diplomatic area. Despite the bold talk, countries like Egypt and Saudi Arabia only sent ministers instead of their countries heads. Sunni, Shia tension still loom amongst Arab countries. The summit is issuing strong rejection over the U.S. decision but little else on how to move the peace talks forward.
Caton: King Abdullah of Jordan once again visited Pope Francis at the Vatican. The meeting had a motive that concerned both the Holy See and the Middle East and that’s the United States unilateral decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The meeting between the two was a relaxed one with the Hashemite king inviting the Pope to Jordan again. The two exchanged gifts. Throughout the meeting both agreed on preserving the holy city’s status quo as key elements for the regions peace and stability.
Caton: The nations are making tug-of-war moves and can’t seem to agree on anything that’ s mutually beneficial for all. Well until our leaders accept that their way isn’t working and that there is another way, our world will continue to spiral downward until all-out war is realized by all.
