Francis received a joyous welcome from around 100,000 people who lined the streets of Sarajevo, Bosnia’s capital, as his motorcade made its way to the national stadium, where the pontiff celebrated mass for a mainly Catholic audience of around 65,000, speaking in Italian.
Many conflicts across the planet amount to “a kind of Third World War being fought piecemeal and, in the context of global communications, we sense an atmosphere of war,” the pontiff said, according to AFP. “Some wish to incite and foment this atmosphere deliberately,” he added, attacking those who want to foster division for political ends or profit from war through arms dealing.
How will that be taken in European capitals? Kerry was reaffirming the position of Merkel and Hollande, the key shapers of the Minsk II agreement; and Nuland was nullifying them. Obama now has sided with Nuland on this; it’s a slap in the face to the EU: Poroshenko can continue ignoring Kerry and can blatantly ignore the Minsk II agreement; and Obama tacitly sides with Poroshenko and Nuland, against Kerry.

He is urging the Obama administration to soften the deadline, arguing it is inadvertently giving Tehran leverage in the negotiations.
“The demand by a senior Israeli official that the United States extend the deadline for the Iran nuclear talks is a ploy,” Schoenman said. “And it’s quite clear what the intension is. It’s to delay, and to stall and to continue to prevent an agreement being reached in the expectation that the forthcoming elections may bring a Republican to office and allow for the Congress to reject the agreement and with the expectation that the newly elected president will not veto that rejection,” he added.
“So what we are looking here is another of the attempts on the part of the Zionist state to prevent any kind of agreement from being reached that would stand in the way of a confrontation, and in fact what the Zionists really want is an attack on Iran,” he stated. “And that’s basically what we are witnessing here, and they are not even opaque about their design,” the political activist continued.
“They’re exclusively speculating that they can use [Sheldon] Adelson and many [others like him] to spend huge sums of money to attempt to elect the Congress and a president that will go along with the rejection, and will prevent any kind of understanding from being reached, intensify the sanctions, and to take further steps to provoke a war. That’s the intent,” he pointed out.
“The defense [sic] minister of Israel himself said that he looks back to the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki with the understanding that it was a MORAL DECISION, because the alternative to doing that to incinerating the inhabitants of Hiroshima and Nagasaki would have been millions of deaths to a protracted war,” he noted. “That statement by the minister of defense [sic] of Israel made only last week underlines what is the issue here,” said the author of the Hidden History of Zionism.

OSCE envoy to the Ukraine resigns stating "peace process is basically dead", "we will see an escalation this summer" ~ link ~
Heidi Tagliavini, a Swiss diplomat who played a key role in negotiating a February cease-fire and peace deal, has decided to resign as special envoy of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, Switzerland’s Foreign Ministry said Saturday.
The resignation came as Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper pledged officers and funding to bolster the Ukrainian police force during a visit to Kiev, in his country’s latest show of support for Ukraine in its standoff with Russia.
“Tagliavini’s resignation reflects her growing frustration and is another sign that the peace process is basically dead,” Joerg Forbrig, a senior program director at the German Marshall Fund of the U.S. in Berlin, said by telephone. “The expectation is we will see an escalation this summer.”

Israeli settlers storm Al-Aqsa Mosque/Temple Mount compound ~ link ~ The most dangerous piece of real estate on Earth!!! Stirling
“At least 35 Jewish settlers, backed by Israeli police, stormed al-Aqsa mosque through Al-Mugharbeh gate,” Sheikh Omar al-Qiswani, the director of Al-Aqsa Mosque, told reporters today. “The Jewish settlers toured the complex, passing by the Al-Qibali and Al-Marwani mosques, before leaving from Al-Rahmeh gate.”
Qiswani added that the settlers tried to perform Talmudic Rituals near the Dome of the Rock mosque, but the Muslim worshipers prevented them.
For Muslims, Al-Aqsa represents the world’s third holiest site.
Jews, for their part, refer to the area as the “Temple Mount,” claiming it was the site of two prominent Jewish temples in ancient times.

Hezbollah fighters clear area nearby Arsal of ISIS mercenaries ~ link ~
Fighters belonging to Lebanese resistance movement, Hezbollah, have taken full control of a strategic hilltop on the outskirts of Lebanon’s northeastern border town of Arsal.
The elite forces of the resistance movement managed to drive al-Qaeda linked al-Nusra Front militants out of Qarnat al-Tannour Heights on the outskirts of the town, the Lebanese al-Manar TV quoted informed sources as saying on Sunday.
According to the sources, a large number of the militants were killed and injured in the operation by the resistance movement and many others fled the area. High significance is attached to the recaptured area as it overlooks the three key valleys of Uwaiss, Atneen and al-Khayl in Arsal barrens, the sources added.
Meanwhile, the Lebanese army shelled the positions of terrorists on the outskirts of the town, which lies about 124 kilometers (77 miles) northeast of the capital, Beirut.
On Friday, Lebanese security sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Hezbollah fighters regained full control of the al-Rahwah crossing on the outskirts of Arsal. The Hezbollah fighters had managed to take back the strategic border crossing of al-Darb, located southwest of Arsal, from al-Nusra Front militants a day before.

EU forcing European nations to adopt "Bail-In" legislation by the End of This Summer ~ link ~
Are they expecting something to happen? As you will read about below, the European Union says that any nation within the EU that does not enact “bail-in” legislation within the next two months will face legal action. The countries that are being threatened in this manner include Italy and France. If you fast forward two months from this moment, that puts us in early August. So clearly the European Union wants everything to be squared away by the end of the summer. Is there a reason for this? Are they anticipating that something really bad will happen in September or thereafter? Why such a rush?
So precisely what is a “bail-in”? Essentially, what happens is that wealth is transferred from the “stakeholders” in the bank to the bank itself in order to keep it solvent. That means that creditors and shareholders could potentially lose everything if a major bank in Europe fails. And if their “contributions” are not enough to save the bank, those holding private bank accounts will have to take “haircuts” just like we saw in Cyprus. In fact, the travesty that we witnessed in Cyprus is being used as a “template” for much of the new legislation that is being enacted all over Europe.
The bottom line is that not a single bank account in the European Union will ever be truly safe again.
