East Berlin district a haven for far-right xenophobia 22.12.2014 Asian Age: International
A picture taken on November 22 shows participants gesturing as they face riot police during a demonstration. AFP There’s little to break the monotony of Communist-era apartment blocks stretching across Marzahn-Hellersdorf, an east Berlin satellite district that has gained national notoriety for a spate of anti-foreigner protests. Week after week, hundreds of residents here have angrily rallied against plans for a new centre to house refugees seeking asylum on a stretch of parkland now ringed by cyclone fence and watched by security guards. As Germany confronts a rise in far-right populism, with “anti-Islamisation” marches drawing thousands in the eastern city of Dresden, this bland corner of the sprawling capital, a district home to almost 300,000 people, has become another flashpoint of resentment and xenophobia. “I have nothing against foreigners, I’ve been around them all my life,” said Fritz Siebke, 91, enjoying a Christmas season banquet of meat rolls, potato dumplings and gravy with fellow German ...

Lebanon says it needs French helicopters quickly to fight jihadis 22.12.2014 FirstPost: World

PARIS (Reuters) - Lebanon hopes France will deliver helicopters to its army faster than planned so it can fight jihadis encroaching from neighbouring Syria, Lebanese Prime Minister Tammam Salam said in an interview on Sunday. France and Lebanon signed a $3 billion Saudi-funded deal in early November to provide French weapons and military equipment to the Lebanese army, which has few resources to deal with the instability on its border and has been seeking to modernise its military hardware. Paris plans to start supplying the equipment in the first quarter of 2015 and over a period of three years, ending with the delivery of helicopters, a defence ministry source said last month

Marking a first in the national capital, children of Tibetan refugees born in India between the cut-off date of 1950 and 1987, would be eligible for enrollment in the voters' list for the Delhi Assembly elections, officials said. "According to the order issued to Delhi's Chief Electoral Office (CEO) by the Election Commission of India (ECI), dated December 8, children of Tibetan refugees born in India between the cut-off date of 1950 and 1987, are eligible for enrollment in Delhi," Deputy Chief Electoral Officer A K Srivastava said.

The guidelines came into force following an August 2013 ...

Natural disasters, not wars, prompt Brits to give to charity 21.12.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Study finds that people are more willing to donate when an emergency – such as a tsunami or earthquake – is seen as beyond human control

Fewer than a third of British people believe in the humanitarian principle that we have a duty to help everyone in distress, regardless of circumstances, according to a new survey conducted by the Charities Aid Foundation.

The research revealed that, beneath the generosity that people show in giving to charity, there is also a judgment – which means that people give far less money to help innocent people caught up in war or conflict than to people who suffer as a result of “natural” disasters, such as earthquakes or floods.
