funeral of three Shiite Muslims allegedly killed by Saudi security forces in the eastern town of al-Awamiya (Source: AP photo) Related News Saudi Arabia’s recent theatrical execution of 47 men including the Shia cleric and activist Nimr al-Nimr speaks volumes about the Saudi regime and sectarian tensions in the Middle East Saudi policies may look complex but they are driven by a single impulse: Fear Above all Saudi rulers fear Iranians Shiites and democrats Iranians threaten the kingdom’s pretensions to regional hegemony; Shias might be agents of Iran; and democrats challenge the Saudi model of no elections no rights and no popular participation Al-Nimr who advocated both Shia rights and political liberalisation represented everything that makes Saudi princes panic Consequently Saudi Arabia wages war on Iran and Iran on Saudi Arabia through proxies The oil behemoths often turn what might have started as manageable local battles into national conflagrations What look like primordial unsolvable sectarian conflicts between Sunnis and Shiites in Syria Yemen Iraq Lebanon Bahrain and even Pakistan are often fuelled by the Saudi-Iranian conflict While geopolitical rivalry undergirds sectarianism there are real and growing tensions between Sunnism and Shi’ism Arab nationalism including its secular variants has long treated orthodox Sunni Islam as the proper religion of the Arabs and Shi’ism as a Persian corruption of Islam While this is historically inaccurate some Sunni Arabs see their Shia brethren as an Iranian fifth column Some see the ascent of the Shia majority in Iraq following Saddam Hussein’s ouster much like some whites in the US regard Barack Obama’s presidency — an alarming perversion of the natural order By executing al-Nimr Saudi rulers advertise to Sunnis that they will lead the fight against both Iran and the Shia menace By attacking Saudi Arabia for its treatment of al-Nimr Iran poses as the defender of the Shias But al-Nimr didn’t just advocate Shia equality He also extolled the Arab Spring uprisings which frightened Saudi rulers even more Anything that smacks of popular empowerment spooks Saudi rulers even if inspired by Muslim religiosity The rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and al-Nahda in Tunisia struck the Saudi princes as an existential threat The result is the spectacle of a regime that pretends to be the sword of the faith backing staunchly secularist regimes against popular Islamists Since they fear not only all Shias but also Sunnis who wish to replace the current power structures the timorous princes are left battling everyone except militantly secularist dictators and the Israelis Little wonder they invest so heavily in fighting Shias — that’s the only claim they can make to political leadership of the faithful Memories of the Arab Spring aren’t the only things frightening the princes A leadership succession looms Following the death of King Abdullah in January 2015 the helm of state fell to the 80-year-old Salman and his 30-year-old favourite son Mohammad bin Salman Like Kim Jung-un young Mohammad impresses with his youth lust for lucre arrogance and belligerence Last year he took charge of the effort to put down the Houthi rebellion in Yemen which promptly degenerated into a quagmire Wars along with plunging oil prices have cut the kingdom’s capacity to buy popular acquiescence In 2011 Abdullah responded to the Arab Spring with a $70 billion package for housing and healthcare With oil at one-third of its 2011 price and the government running a $100 billion annual deficit the princes cannot afford such sops today Given their hostility to sharing any power with their subjects and their declining capacity to buy their subjects’ loyalty playing to popular nationalism and prejudice may be one of the few tools the Saudi rulers have left Attacking Shias and confronting Iran are crowd-pleasers at home Iranian hardliners such as Ayatollah Ali Khamenei make a similar wager The interests of the hardliners on each side converge Both Prince Mohammad and Khamenei would delight in derailing Iran’s nuclear deal with the West — which open confrontation between Riyadh and Tehran would do Both seek to use conflict with the other to whip up support and silence calls for reform The interests of ordinary people also converge in certain ways Each month Iran shells out $1-2bn to fight Saudi-backed rebels in Syria and Saudi Arabia spends $3-4bn battling Iranian-backed insurgents in Yemen The people gain nothing from such expenditures Implementation of the nuclear deal which 75 per cent of Iranians support frees up $58bn in frozen assets and enables Iran to boost oil exports by 15 million barrels a day If Saudi Arabia and Iran seem to be locked in a ludicrous contest to see which side can bankrupt itself first with its efforts to undermine the other the reason is in the mac-hinations of hardliners not in the interests of ordinary people But both

the case was lodged on July 1 2015 and despite expiry of almost two years no effort whatsoever seems to have been made by the IO/SHO to arrest the accused… Such kind of leniency only leads to inference of camaraderie between police and accused” Special Judge Sanjeev Aggarwal noted in his order passed on Monday The court also directed the Commissioner of Police to look into the delay and “find out who are the police officials responsible for wilful inaction on the part of police authorities” “The probe will be carried out by an officer not less than the rank of DCP… and the report will be sent to this court within 10 days of receiving of this order” the court said The case pertains to a scuffle which took place on June 4 2015 in Shashtri Nagar where two accused — Gurvinder

Wednesday decided to defer till Thursday a decision on release of 6000 cusecs of Cauvery water per day to Tamil Nadu as per the Supreme Court direction "We have deferred decision on release till tomorrow. We will see the outcome (of the meeting) and then decide on the next step" Chief Minister Siddaramaiah told reporters here after a marathon sitting of the Cabinet preceded by an all-party meeting He said the government would explain the ground realities including the storage levels in the four reservoirs in the Cauvery basin and the state’s difficulties at tomorrow’s meeting of the two riparian states convened by the Centre to thrash out a solution amid the raging row "I will attend the meeting and put forward our case Let us see what will come out of the meeting" Siddaramaiah said a day after the Supreme Court asked Karnataka to release 6000 cusecs of Cauvery water in the next three days despite the unanimous assembly resolution to use the water only for drinking purpose Representational image CNN-News18 The apex court had also called for a political solution to the "impasse" by convening of a meeting of the Chief Ministers of both states and the Centre "We are sure that the state of Karnataka shall obey the order without any kind of impediment obstruction or any other attitude till we take up the matter on September 30" a bench of Justices Dipak Misra and U U Lalit had said Asked about the specific mention in the order that there should not be any impediment or obstruction Siddaramaiah said "we are aware of it We are also aware of the resolution of the legislature and suggestions made by the Opposition parties" In an unprecedented move in the more than century-long Cauvery dispute with the neighbouring state both the Legislative Assembly and the Council on September 23 had adopted the resolution not to provide water for any other purpose except to meet drinking needs citing "acute distress" and "alarmingly low levels" in its dams "We have no intention to disobey the Supreme Court order" the Chief Minister said pointing out that the legislature session and opposition parties had clearly mandated that the water was required for drinking purpose After the meeting in New Delhi tomorrow the government would consider various options including whether it should go back to the legislature or call an all-party meeting Siddaramaiah said He said both the BJP and JDS suggested at the all party meeting today that factoring in the legislature resolution and the Delhi meeting the decision on release of water should be deferred till tomorrow The meeting was attended by BJP Union Ministers from Karnataka Ananth Kumar D V Sadananda Gowda and Ramesh Jigajinagi former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa and the party’s floor leader Jagadish

said ".we will discuss ittomorrow for us there is a direction by the legislature also Whatever water we have in our reservoirs we have to reserve it for drinking water that we have to keep in mind

Siddaramaiah said "at this moment I can’t say anything I am going tomorrow I will attend the meeting I will put forward our case Let us see what will come out" Asked whether tomorrow’s meeting would

Long Snapper Jon Dorenbos announced an Eagles’ daft pick last night in Philadelphia. Jon will be in Ocean City performing his magic show at the Music Pier on May 13th. By Tim Kelly Myles Garrett, a defensive end from Texas A&M, may be the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, but make no mistake about it: the main star of the draft, which kicked off Thursday night and continues through tomorrow, is the city of Philadelphia.Ocean City resident Billy Schweim, whose ESPN 97.3 radio talk show can be heard Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, said Philadelphia allowed the NFL to make its draft a bigger event than some other sports’ playoff games.“More than any other major league, the NFL does a great job of making its sport accessible and interesting to its fans year ‘round,” said Schweim. “The draft is a great example of the league’s ability to market its product.”Schweim cited Philadelphia’s venue of the Museum of Art and the Ben Franklin Parkway — uniquely suited to showcase everything from the city’s Independence Day fireworks celebration and concert to a pair of Papal Masses — as the only performance space of its kind.Chloe and Halle Berry perform the National Anthem to kick off the start of the 2017 NFL Draft in front of more than 100,000 fans. (Photo credit: NFL.com)The NFL reportedly invested $20 million in building a huge stage on the steps of the Art Museum, made famous in the “Rocky” movie franchise, and other preparations. The so-called “Selection Square,” where representatives of each NFL team made the actual draft picks, was set up in the rotunda of the Franklin Institute next to the huge marble statue of Ben Franklin. A 100,000-square ft. NFL Shop was installed and had a line to get in Friday.There was a red carpet area where the first round picks strutted in expensive designer suits, a concession row featuring a wide range of food and drink concessions, as well as a photo station where fans could pose with the Lombardi Trophy and view a full collection of Super Bowl championship rings. NFL marketing executive Jessica Christ said the merchandise sales exceeded expectations in the first two days, according to published reports.Beyond the setting, Philadelphia’s legendary fans showed up in record numbers for an NFL draft and provided energy and noise never before seen. Published reports estimated 100,000 fans showed up for the first night’s selection of draft rounds 1 and 2 and even more packed the Parkway on Friday.“I heard (NFL executive and former Eagle) Troy Vincent say that Philly blew Chicago away,” said Schweim, in reference to the Windy City’s effort to host the draft last year. “Maybe Philly should have it every year.”The NFL Draft logo dominates a huge sign on stage in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.Philadelphia’s favorable geographic location allowed representation by fans of many other teams such as the New York Jets and Giants, Baltimore Ravens, Washington, Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns. Despite this, the dominant fan base came from the host city.“I think the Philadelphia fans’ reputation is something of a cliché, and some of the fans try to live up to it,” said Schweim. “At the same time, they are showing enthusiasm and passion that can’t be matched.”The fans booed NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell every time he walked to the stage, as well as the draft selections for divisional rivals Washington and New York. But as expected, they saved the most venom for their most bitter rival, the Dallas Cowboys. On Saturday, former Dallas wide receiver Drew Pearson tried to taunt the fans: “I want to thank the Philly fans for allowing me to have a career,” he said, with the boos raining down to the point of nearly drowning out Pearson’s words.Of course they roared with cheers on Thursday night when Temple linebacker Haasan Reddick was the 13th overall selection (Arizona Cardinals) and the Eagles went “on the clock” in advance of their selection of Derek Bennett,a defensive end from Tennessee.Ocean City resident, Alec Wisnefski enjoyed the opportunity to meet Corey Davis.All of this made for what the industry calls “good TV” and results in the audience sticking with the coverage through hours and hours of programming and commercials.“I was a bit perplexed with the Eagles pick,” Schweim said. “I was expecting them to take a wide receiver or a defensive back there.” They did grab Sidney Jones, a corner from the University of Washington in the second round with the 43rd overall selection.On today’s show Schweim will talk about the draft and will speak to former Temple star running back Paul Palmer who coached Reddick when Haasan attended Haddon Heights High School.Ocean City’s Jake Schneider, Flynn DeVlieger, and Brady Rauner had great seats for watching all the action.
