Why has a UK team genetically edited human embryos?

1396/6/30 | 16:28
By Michael Le Page Human embryos have been genetically edited in the UK for the first time, using a technique called CRISPR. But why do researchers think this is so important? What gene editing was carried out? The UK team, led by Kathy Niakan of the Francis Crick Institute in London, used the CRISPR genome-editing method to disable a gene thought to play a key role in early development. The researchers used around 60 spare embryos donated by couples who’d had IVF, which would otherwise have been discarded. The embryos had been frozen ...

UK arms sales benefiting most from Middle East wars

1396/6/26 | 16:28
  The UK has exported £5 billion ($6.8 billion) worth of weapons to oppressive regimes around the world since the Conservatives came to power 22 months ago, the Guardian newspaper reported.   Arms sales to Saudi Arabia have been pinpointed as the main cause of the increase. In 2015, the Kingdom setup an Arab coalition to battle in Yemen.

1396/6/26 | 16:28

But they have plenty of levers.   President Donald Trump last month promised to get tough on Pakistan, ...

There are almost 100 new volcanoes hiding under Antarctic ice

1396/5/24 | 16:28
  Almost 100 volcanoes have been newly identified beneath the ice covering West Antarctica. It’s not yet known whether they’re active, but if they are, it could spell added trouble for ice sheets already in retreat because of global warming. “If they erupted, they would create water beneath the ice,” says Robert Bingham at the University of Edinburgh, UK. “That would make the ice above flow faster, so it would have the potential to increase the losses of ice we’re already seeing.” Bingham and his colleagues identified ...

1396/5/13 | 16:28
The UK government has blocked the public release of nearly 1,000 documents detailing sensitive data about the country’s past military deals with Saudi Arabia.   London has also refused to release an additional 27 documents connected to Prince Charles and Lady Diana’s visit to the Middle East in 1986.

UK Profiting From Yemeni Civilians Suffering: HRW

1396/4/22 | 16:28
Human Rights Watch (HRW) says the United Kingdom is profiting from the suffering of Yemeni civilians by selling arms to Saudi Arabia.     The prominent rights group made the remarks in a press release on Tuesday, after a UK High Court ruling earlier in the week declared that London’s arms sales to Riyadh were not illegal.     Describing the judgment as terrible news for Yemeni civilians, the HRW also expressed disappointment at the ruling for not helping pressure Riyadh to end its “unlawful attacks” in the war-torn ...

Saudi terrorism link: Blair confesses promoting Salafi Islam

1396/4/18 | 16:28
Saudi Arabia has spent a cool 67 billion GBP over the last three decades spreading globally its Wahabbi strain of Islam. In Britain-specific terms, this has translated into an estimated 110 mosques adhering to this ideology, with a combined capacity to hold around 45,000 followers as of 2014. (Though the latter refers to those mosques preferring to identity as Salafi). The think tank has some tough words for the political leadership: get serious about tracking foreign funding and make all such findings public. The Cameron government held back ...

1396/4/15 | 16:28
  The Syrian branch of al-Qaeda changed its name to Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), and is now officially removed from the U.S. and Canadian terror watchlists.   Now, the U.S. and Canada can donate money and weapons to the terrorists, and can even go fight with them against the Syrian government and spread their propaganda.   It turns out that getting off the U.S.’ and Canada’s terror watchlist is as simple as changing your name. While the terror watchlist in the U.S. has long been both secretive and controversial – as ...

UK considers removing Blair’s immunity over Iraq war

1396/4/15 | 16:28
Tony Blair may face formal charges over war crimes if judges overturn a controversial ruling that gave the former Primer Prime Minister, immunity from prosecution over the Iraq War. Last year a British court blocked a private criminal prosecution against Blair by General Abdul-Wahid Shannan ar-Ribat, a former chief of staff of the Iraqi army.

Qatar Crisis: How the European world is in deep trouble?

1396/4/12 | 16:28
  European governments might be able to maintain neutrality on the Qatari crisis with a straight face, but their bankers’ hearts, and hands, are already not so clean.     And since Mr Market interprets political developments best in the twenty-first century, it provides the clearest direction of the latest Middle East crisis. It turns out that European, led by British, banks have stopped buying and selling the Qatari Riyal, putting downward pressure on the currency.      That would be awkward on any given day, ...

UK under attack: Paying price of feeding snakes in Yemen and Syria

1396/3/15 | 16:28
  Prime Minister Theresa May responded on Sunday to an attack in London which killed seven people, declaring "enough is enough” and calling for a review of Britain's counter-terrorism strategy.     The current threat level for international terrorism in the UK is “severe”, which means an attack is “highly likely”.   There are five threat levels, decided by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre, designed to give a broad indication of the likelihood of an attack.   May, who faces a general election Thursday, ...

Manchester attack: Is UK targeting Muslims the pretext of attack?

1396/3/13 | 16:28
    The United Kingdom has been a source of suspense of late with regards to the spate of terror it has experienced.   Baroness Warsi claimed that lackadaisical attitudes have guided Britain’s policymaking thus far, giving easy way to terrorist attacks, and additionally that this is not only a war against ideology.   While Britain’s ideological war is valid, the angle is passive; the cabinet member is correct in that the issue requires more depth and evidence-based responses to elucidate the elements that lure one ...

1396/3/6 | 16:28
UK has been worst hit by terrorists once again and  now all eyes are on the government, because of an admission by the Home secretary that Abedi had been on Britain’s intelligence radar.     There have also been reports by US officials that he travelled to Libya three weeks prior to blowing himself up.

London attack: A reminder not to feed snakes

1396/1/6 | 16:28
  Terror returned to the streets of London on Wednesday, injecting further tension into an already fraught series of debates playing out across the international stage.   The attack is a clear reflection of the fact that we face bigger threats than laptops. It is also important not to start profiling or attacking the religious identity of the attacker.   The UK is entering a particularly divisive divorce from the European Union, which has left the country’s social divisions much more exposed.   The list of those ...
