This week’s obscene Met Gala extravaganza is just the latest example of how the great and the good lord it over us ordinary people with astonishing chutzpah and hypocrisy. It’s time to resist their control.

Extravagant events staged as social media spectacles in America have taken a page out of the failed Roman Empire’s playbook on diversion and distraction of the masses. Please welcome globalism 2.0, the bread-and-circuses acts designed to shift the narrative away from the uncomfortable truth of a collapsing regime. 

Social media is the tool being used to shape, design and control us, both as individuals and via the societies we live in. Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn, YouTube, Apple, and Amazon have sophisticated surveillance tools and algorithms designed to ‘censor’ opposing viewpoints, and will no doubt shortly implement social credit scoring that will be enforced by mob rule and a rabid cancel culture. 

Societal elites, politicians, and a servile mainstream media have launched a divisive class war, imposing mask mandates and vaccine passports on the masses, yet ignoring these rules as they please. They appear to grant us access to free and fair elections, and a ‘choice’ between red or blue, but no matter which option we pick, it produces the same outcome, and the puppeteers empty our pockets from behind a curtain. 

The liberal left shriek about equality, equity, and social justice while embracing a culture that enables a class system of indentured servitude in which the badly paid workers who serve the elites their exotic foods and French champagne must wear masks, yet the same rules don’t apply to those who created them. Epic hypocrisy – one rule for thee, another for me.

The UK and US governments and their media partners deploy gaslighting, lies, propaganda, and fear to control us. Their mantra: a fearful public is a submissive, obedient, and compliant public. These campaigns include the bait-and-switch BS employed by British PM Boris Johnson, as he makes promise after promise only to discard each one: on no vaccine passports, on no new taxes, on the hiring of more nurses and police. Just read the fictional Tory manifesto comparing the promises made to the realities delivered. 

And the same lies are repeated each election cycle – we must all be suffering from Stockholm syndrome to fall for them. Die-hard Tory apologists insist ‘circumstances changed’ with Covid, so taxes have to go up. Sorry, but Covid does not explain the Conservative Party’s fiscal profligacy over the personal protective equipment scandal, the not-fit-for-purpose £40 billion ($55 billion) NHS’s coronavirus Test and Trace disgrace, the High Speed 2 rail track to nowhere that is £70 billion ($96 billion) over its original budget, or all the other non-tendered deals tossed to Tory donors that made them fat, prosperous, and happy while the tax-paying plebs got screwed – again. 

And who better illustrates this new authoritarianism than Nadhim Zahawi – until this week’s Cabinet reshuffle the UK’s vaccines minister? Two days ago, he announced that children as young as 12 will be able to overrule their parent’s objections to their receiving a Covid-19 jab, allowing them to participate in what is essentially a medical experiment. No long-term data exists that supports the safety, efficacy, or necessity of a coronavirus vaccine for children. Parents should be outraged by the Tories’ forced medical tyranny and never again vote for them.

Across the pond, US President Joe Biden’s dishonesty is extraordinary. At his inauguration, he promised to provide “truth”and “unity” and to honor the US Constitution. How’s that going? Among his whoppers was this promise: “I don’t think Covid vaccines should be mandatory,” and that he wouldn’t be imposing a mask mandate. Until he did.

Biden’s recent Covid vaccine dictate, declaring“war on the unvaccinated,” had him bizarrely bellowing, “This is not about freedom.” That’s one of the few times he’s been right.

In his infrequent public appearances, the president is sometimes visibly disorientated, occasionally confused, and often unable to read a teleprompter. He has even admittedhe is “not supposed” to answer questions. Something is very wrong. So, why is the liberal mainstream media covering these things up? 

Biden also promised not to leave Americans behind when he exited Afghanistan without any plan. That, too, was a lie and a total disaster. The withdrawal illustrated a complete lack of leadership by feckless cowards who turned their backs on US citizens, allies, and the Afghans who helped America’s War on Terror for 20 years. 

His ill-thought-out and badly executed orders resulted in hundreds of deaths and a mass hostage situation, and gifted the Taliban with a lot of hi-tech military equipment. The consequences and international blowback of this failed exit will last for decades. Little wonder Senator James Risch (R-ID) demanded that Secretary of State Antony Blinken disclose who reallyis in charge at the White House.”  The US Army’s Joint Chief of Staff General Mark Milley’s recent declarationthat “we’re the guys with the guns” shows the US is run by unaccountable, unelected civilians dressed up in military gear.   

Yet, never mind disasters such as Covid, Afghanistan, and all that, the party must go on for the elites. Their bread-and-circuses events divert, distract, and entertain the masses. These range from this week’s obscene Met Gala to other mask-free events such as California Governor Gavin Newsome’s lavish French Laundry $2,500-a-head dinner, Speaker ‘Fancy Nancy’ Pelosi’s fundraisers, and Obama’s 60th-birthday party. 

Back in Britain, there’s the extra-marital affair engaged in respectively by Neil Ferguson, the scientist who started all the coronavirus madness, and by then-Health Minister Matt Hancock, each, in the name of love, brazenly violating the rules they created and imposed on the public. At the same time, the economy is being plundered, books burned, history rewritten, and cultural values, norms, and the concept of a nuclear family destroyed. And all the while, politicians become obscenely wealthy. 

Governments are not following science, they are corrupting it, and placing politics and profits before people’s lives. No leader or administration can be trusted unless they practice transparency and accountability. Yet the UK government wants to jail journalists for reporting public corruption that embarrasses those in power.  

The imposition of crippling measures on the economy have led to widespread business closures. Lockdowns, and mask and vaccine mandates, are not simply about public health, but, rather, are a power grab for political control, designed to instil fear and make the little man dependent on “big government.” The mantra of “Build Back Better” is, in reality, cover for a dystopian revolution. Together we must resist all of these authoritarian dictates before it’s too late.

A US Central Command investigation found that an aid worker and nine members of his family, including seven children, died in the 29 August strike.

The youngest child, Sumaya, was just two years old.

The deadly strike happened days after a terror attack at Kabul airport, amid a frenzied evacuation effort following the Taliban's sudden return to power.

It was one of the US military's final acts in Afghanistan, before ending its 20-year operation in the country.

US intelligence had tracked the aid worker's car for eight hours, believing it was linked to IS-K militants - a local branch of the Islamic State (IS) group, US Central Command Gen Kenneth McKenzie said.

 

The investigation found the man's car had been seen at a compound associated with IS-K, and its movements aligned with other intelligence about the terror group's plans for an attack on Kabul airport.

At one point, a surveillance drone saw men loading what appeared to be explosives into the boot of the car, but it turned out to be containers of water.

Gen McKenzie described the strike as a "tragic mistake", and added that the Taliban had not been involved in the intelligence that led to the strike.

The strike happened as the aid worker - named as Zamairi Akmadhi - pulled into the driveway of his home, 3km (1.8 miles) from the airport.

The explosion set off a secondary blast, which US officials initially said was proof that the car was indeed carrying explosives. However the investigation has found it was most likely caused by a propane tank in the driveway.

Relatives of the victims told the BBC the day after the strike that they had applied to be evacuated to the US, and had been waiting for a phone call telling them to go to the airport.

 

One of those killed, Ahmad Naser, had been a translator with US forces. Other victims had previously worked for international organisations and held visas allowing them entry to the US.

When the US started to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan, the Taliban managed to seize control of the country within about two weeks in a lightning-fast offensive.

 

President Ashraf Ghani fled to the United Arab Emirates, and Afghanistan's capital, Kabul, fell on 15 August.

It sparked a mass evacuation effort from the US and its allies, as thousands of people tried to flee. Many were foreign nationals or Afghans who had worked for foreign governments.

There were scenes of panic and chaos at Kabul airport, and some people fell to their death after trying to cling on to the side of US military planes as they took off.

The security situation was further heightened after a suicide bomber killed up to 170 civilians and 13 US troops outside the airport on 26 August. IS-K said it had carried out the attack.

Many of those killed had been hoping to board one of the evacuation flights leaving the city.

The last US soldier left Afghanistan on 31 August- the deadline President Joe Biden had set for the US withdrawal.

More than 124,000 foreigners and Afghans were flown out of the country before the deadline. But some people were unable to get out in time, and evacuation efforts are ongoing.

WASHINGTON: The United States is ready to roll out COVID-19 vaccine booster shots next week but will do so only if health regulators approve the plan, White House officials said on Friday.
In August, President Joe Biden said the government would provide boosters in the week of Sept. 20 to address waning vaccine immunity and the highly transmissible Delta variant.
“We’ve been working through the last few weeks, intensely with our partners, our governors, state, and local health officials, federal pharmacy programs, the community health centers to ensure that we are ready for next week,” White House coronavirus response coordinator Jeff Zientz said at a briefing.
While some health officials, other countries and vaccine makers say boosters are needed, many experts disagree, including two top scientists at the Food and Drug Administration who are leaving the agency later this year.
Surgeon General Vivek Murthy told reporters boosters will be available once the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approve the plan. Critics have said the Biden administration’s booster plan is putting pressure on scientists or getting ahead of their evaluations.
“We have always said that this initial plan would be contingent on the FDA and the CDC’s independent evaluation. We will follow that evaluation and their recommendations. We will make sure our final plan reflects it,” he said.
Murthy was among eight top US health officials including the FDA and CDC chiefs who have said boosters are necessary.
A panel of independent expert advisers to the FDA is debating whether Americans should receive a booster dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and was set to vote later on Friday.
The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices will meet next week to discuss boosters.

In the absence of urgent action against the climate crisis, more than 200 million people might be forced out of their homes by 2050, the World Bank warned.

According to a comprehensive report the World Bank released on Monday, September 13, the international financial institution urged governments to curb global emissions and close the development gap in order to reduce the negative effects of slow-onset climate change, such as water scarcity and decreased crop productivity.

“All these issues are fundamentally connected, which is why our support to countries is positioned to deliver on climate and development objectives together while building a more sustainable, safe and resilient future,” according to the Vice President of Sustainable Development at the World Bank, Juergen Voegele.

In the worst-case scenario, the World Bank’s Groundswell Report estimates that by 2050, more than 216 million people could be on the move across six regions, creating "hotspots of internal climate migration" by 2030 that will continue to spread.

Sub-Saharan Africa is considered to be the most vulnerable region due to desertification, fragile coastlines, and the population's dependency on agriculture. If the worst scenario were to occur, 86 million people would cross borders within national boundaries.

Climate migrants could account for 19 million people in North Africa or 9% of the region's population.

The world could still see 44 million people displaced even through the most environmentally friendly strategy with low emissions and sustainable development.

Morocco has been seeing the effects firsthand. The kingdom has been vigilant in fighting attempts at migration from Africa to Europe, most notably, the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla. 

There is a regular collaboration among all services to combat migration attempts, such as the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN), Royal Gendarmerie, and the Royal Navy.

In the past four years, Morocco's security services have rescued over 80,500 migrants at sea. Since 2017, Morocco has prevented more than 14,000 unauthorized migration attempts.

“The Groundswell report is a stark reminder of the human toll of climate change, particularly on the world’s poorest- those who are contributing the least to its causes. It also clearly lays out a path for countries to address some of the key factors that are causing climate-driven migration,” Juergen Voegele said.

The report “reaffirms the potency of climate to induce migration within countries,” according to Viviane Wei Chen Clement, a senior climate change specialist at the World Bank and one of the report’s co-authors.

In 2018, Groundswell published the first part of its report covering Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Latin America. In the second part of the report, which was published on Monday, environmental analysts offer climate migration projections and analysis for East Asia, the Pacific, North Africa, and Eastern Europe.

The report did not examine climate migration across borders, as well as short-term impacts from climate change, like extreme weather events.

The report explores possible future outcomes from a scenario-based approach, which can help decision-makers plan for the future. With this approach, hotspots of migration within and outside of the country can be identified based on water scarcity, agricultural decline, and rising sea levels, and new livelihood opportunities in both urban and rural areas can be identified.

“Globally, we know that three out of four people that move stay within countries,” said Kanta Kumari Rigaud, an environmental specialist at the World Bank and one of the authors of the report.

Actions recommended in the policy were reaching net-zero emissions by the middle of the century and investing in green growth to be consistent with the Paris Agreement.

The findings come ahead of the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference, COP26, scheduled to be held in November.

NASA's first space shuttle was meant to be named Constitution -- a nod to the United States Bicentennial that year. But a write-in campaign by "Star Trek" fans prompted President Gerald Ford to change his mind.
Instead, the orbiter was called Enterprise, like the TV show's starship. That's why members of the "Star Trek" cast and crew, including Nichelle Nichols, George Takei and Gene Roddenberry, could be seen among the crowd at the shuttle's September 1976 unveiling.
They can also be seen, sporting quintessentially 1970s sartorial style, in one of the 450 previously unpublished and rarely seen images featured in University Press Florida's new book, "Picturing the Space Shuttle: The Early Years." The publication chronicles the shuttle program from 1965 until 1982, ending just a year into the spacecraft's operational life.
 
"Most of the shuttle books that are available try to do too much and cover the entire program," said co-author John Bisney in a phone interview. "And when you have 135 flights over 30 years, that's difficult to condense into one book."
 
Bisney's book, which he co-authored with J.L. Pickering, instead offers a unique view into the early development of the shuttle, the world's first reusable spacecraft, with a wealth of outlandish sketches and drawings of alternative designs -- some of which still look remarkably futuristic.
"Some of the early concepts involved having the booster rocket also come back and land like an airplane, automatically," Bisney said. "Unfortunately, it turned out to be pretty complicated."
 
Instead, the booster rockets splashed into the ocean after detaching from the shuttle, to be recovered and refurbished. A modern rocket like SpaceX's Falcon Heavy has booster rockets that can autonomously descend back to Earth and land.
The shuttle -- officially called STS, or Space Transportation System -- first flew into space on April 12, 1981, with the distinction of having not been tested with an unmanned launch first. Astronauts John Young and Bob Crippen flew the orbiter, Columbia, for 54 hours before landing safely back on Earth. The book's timeline ends after the fourth space shuttle mission, a test flight that paved the way for operational missions.

A decision by the European Commission has ended speculation over the fate of Moroccans who faced travel restrictions due to the type of COVID vaccine they have been administered. The commission published its “implementing decision (EU) 2021/1481” that makes Morocco’s vaccine passport an equivalent to its European counterparts.

The decision establishes “the equivalence, for the purpose of facilitating the right of free movement within the Union, of COVID-19 certificates issued by the Kingdom of Morocco to the certificates issued in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2021/953 of the European Parliament and of the Council.”

This means vaccination passports and test certificates issued by Morocco are now considered part of the EU’s legal framework that establishes the legitimacy of foreign documents that intend to provide information about travellers’ COVID-19 status.

In return, Morocco will recognize the EU’s certified documents in regard to testing and vaccine status.

Vaccine barriers

Many Moroccans feared new restrictions on travel to Europe due to the local use of the Sinopharm vaccine in Morocco. The EU recently announced it would not recognize the Chinese vaccine, which provided new barriers for Moroccans looking to travel north.

The European Commission has now found a way to allow Moroccans in, without having to recognize the vaccine by the West’s new geopolitical rival. 

Amid a global shortage of vaccines, the Sinopharm jab became, and continues to be, Morocco’s primary tool against the pandemic. Bilateral agreements with China provided millions of vaccines, which allowed Moroccan health authorities to vaccinate large swaths of the population while many countries on the continent could vaccinate only a few percent of the population.

Some Moroccans feared that receiving the Chinese vaccine could impact their ability to travel to Western countries who are taking an increasingly hostile stance towards China. The European Commission’s decision appears to allow sinopharm-vaccinated people in, without having to openly declare the vaccine as safe.

A delegation of Polish businessmen are currently on an economic mission to Laayoune, south of Morocco, to explore investment opportunities in the southern provinces of the country.

This economic mission is organized by the Moroccan embassy in Warsaw, in collaboration with the Regional Investment Centers (CRI) of the southern provinces, Laayoune and Dakhla. 

The two cities in the Western Sahara have been experiencing a significant economic boom, offering a wide range of opportunities for foreign investment, specifically exploring business opportunities.

According to the Moroccan Embassy in Warsaw, the mission is the result of an exploratory and rapprochement strategy that Poland's private sector has been engaged in for some time.

This visit aims to highlight the development efforts made by Morocco at the national and regional levels. 

The Polish delegation will have the opportunity to witness the efforts made by the Moroccan government in the region, across a variety of fields, especially promoting business-friendly infrastructure in the regions of Laayoune-Sakia El Hamra and Dakhla-Oued Eddahab.

The delegation is scheduled to meet with representatives of the region's Regional Investment Centers (CRI), B2B meetings with Moroccan companies, and visits to major structuring projects.

The represented Polish companies’ activity sectors are diverse. A few of the visiting companies specialize in professional lighting solutions, while others manufacture ultralight multi-purpose helicopters. 

The companies being represented range from various sectors, including  the health and agricultural industry, the telecommunications and electric power sectors, the production of chargers for electric cars, the manufacture of fire fighting equipment and materials, and the manufacturing of military and civil specialized containers..

Polish investment interests in the southern provinces of Morocco were first expressed through the bilateral declarations signed earlier this year, as a result of the joint workshops in Warsaw between the Moroccan Ambassador to Poland, Abderrahim Atmoun, and the representatives of Polish firms.

Mauritius is all set to fully reopen its borders to vaccinated travellers on October 1.

The Indian Ocean nation has implemented a two-phased reopening strategy. In the initial phase, from July 15 to September 30, it is welcoming vaccinated travellers to enjoy holidays within 14 dedicated “resort bubbles”.

Only those staying for more than two weeks are able to visit other parts of the island, after taking a PCR test on day 14 of their holiday.

As part of the second phase, starting in October, vaccinated travellers will be free to explore the island from the get-go, as long as they present a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of travel, upon arrival.

The successful reopening is being attributed to the acceleration of the island’s vaccination programme. Almost 1.3 million vaccine doses have been administered to citizens and residents.

In percentages, this translates as 45.5 per cent being fully vaccinated, according to the latest figures from John Hopkins University. In January, the Mauritian government decided to give priority to vaccinating hotel staff and others working in the tourism industry.

“Mauritius is delighted to see the world opening up again for travel,” said Arvind Bundhun, director of the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority. “We have been welcoming international visitors to our island since the middle of July and the ‘resort bubbles’ have proven a great success.

“We are looking forward to the next stage of our reopening on October 1, when vaccinated visitors will be able to explore the island without restriction from the moment of their arrival. The safety and security of Mauritian residents, citizens and guests remains paramount.”

Emirates flies to Mauritius twice a week, with return economy flights starting from Dh4,515. Mauritius is currently on Abu Dhabi’s green list, meaning travellers will not have to quarantine upon their return to the capital.

The sun is always showering Earth with a mist of magnetized particles known as solar wind. For the most part, our planet's magnetic shield blocks this electric wind from doing any real damage to Earth or its inhabitants, instead sending those particles skittering toward the poles and leaving behind a pleasant aurora in their wake.

But sometimes, every century or so, that wind escalates into a full-blown solar storm — and, as new research presented at the SIGCOMM 2021data communication conference warns, the results of such extreme space weather could be catastrophic to our modern way of life.

In short, a severe solar storm could plunge the world into an "internet apocalypse" that keeps large swaths of society offline for weeks or months at a time, Sangeetha Abdu Jyothi, an assistant professor at the University of California, Irvine, wrote in the new research paper. (The paper has yet to appear in a peer-reviewed journal).

"What really got me thinking about this is that with the pandemic we saw how unprepared the world was. There was no protocol to deal with it effectively, and it's the same with internet resilience," Abdu Jyothi told WIRED. "Our infrastructure is not prepared for a large-scale solar event."

Part of the problem is that extreme solar storms (also called coronal mass ejections) are relatively rare; scientists estimate the probability of an extreme space weather directly impacting Earth to be between 1.6% to 12% per decade, according to Abdu Jyothi's paper.

In recent history, only two such storms have been recorded — one in 1859 and the other in 1921. The earlier incident, known as the Carrington Event, created such a severe geomagnetic disturbance on Earth that telegraph wires burst into flame, and auroras — usually only visible near the planet's poles — were spotted near equatorial Colombia. Smaller storms can also pack a punch; one in March 1989 blacked out the entire Canadian province of Quebec for nine hours.

Since then, human civilization has become much more reliant on the global internet, and the potential impacts of a massive geomagnetic storm on that new infrastructure remain largely unstudied, Abdu Jyothi said. In her new paper, she tried to pinpoint the greatest vulnerabilities in that infrastructure.

The good news is, local and regional internet connections are likely at low risk of being damaged because fiber-optic cables themselves aren't affected by geomagnetically induced currents, according to the paper. 

However, the long undersea internet cables that connect continents are a different story. These cables are equipped with repeaters to boost the optical signal, spaced at intervals of roughly 30 to 90 miles (50 to 150 kilometers). These repeaters are vulnerable to geomagnetic currents, and entire cables could be made useless if even one repeater goes offline, according to the paper.

If enough undersea cables fail in a particular region, then entire continents could be cut off from one another, Abdu Jyothi wrote. What's more, nations at high latitudes — such as the U.S. and the U.K. — are far more susceptible to solar weather than nations at lower latitudes. In the event of a catastrophic geomagnetic storm, it's those high-latitude nations that are most likely to be cut off from the network first. It's hard to predict how long it would take to repair underwater infrastructure, but Abdu Jyothi suggests that large-scale internet outages that last weeks or months are possible.

In the meantime, millions of people could lose their livelihoods.

"The economic impact of an Internet disruption for a day in the US is estimated to be over $7 billion," Abdu Jyothi wrote in her paper. "What if the network remains non-functional for days or even months?"

If we don't want to find out, then grid operators need to start taking the threat of extreme solar weather seriously as global internet infrastructure inevitably expands. Laying more cables at lower latitudes is a good start, Abdu Jyothi said, as is developing resilience tests that focus on the effects of large-scale network failures. 

When the next big solar storm does blast out of our star, people on Earth will have about 13 hours to prepare for its arrival, she added. Let's hope we're ready to make the most of that time when it inevitably arrives.

Eyal David, the former deputy Israeli ambassador in Nairobi, Kenya, has joined his new post of deputy chief of the Israeli mission in Rabat.

David announced his arrival in Rabat in a post on Twitter on Monday, saying he was “excited” to start his work as the deputy chief of mission in Morocco.

“I started my day with the sunrise of Tel-Aviv and I ends [sic] it with the sunset of Rabat. Excited to start today my new diplomatic mission as the Deputy Chief of Mission of Israel in the Kingdom of Morocco,” the diplomat said.

Eyal David holds a master's degree in Islamic and Middle Eastern studies.

The diplomat also obtained a BA in International Relations from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2012.

He joined the Israeli foreign ministry after his studies and was shortly appointed emissary to the Jewish community of Lyon in France. Outside of his diplomatic posts, David also previously worked in the External Relations Division of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

The diplomat will join Israel’s Charge d’Affaires in Morocco, David Govrin.

Govrin arrived in Morocco on January 26 for the reopening of the Israeli diplomatic liaison office in Rabat, cementing the December 2020, US-brokered agreement between Morocco and Israel to re-establish official diplomatic ties. He is the first senior Israeli diplomat to serve in Morocco since the early 2000s.

On Monday this week, Morocco’s ambassador to the UN, Omar Hilale, participated in an event to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the signing of the Abraham Accords.

The event took place in New York in the presence of delegates from several of the signatory countries.

Since their 2020 agreement to “normalize” their diplomatic ties, Israel and Morocco have repeatedly vowed to strengthen cooperation in a broad range of fields, including hightech, culture, trade, and defense

Morocco also expected to open an embassy in Israel in the near future.

Morocco’s FM Nasser has reiterated the country’s commitment to the African continent and said that Rabat is open to improving its diplomatic relations with South Africa as part of a wider determination to further intra-African cooperation.    

Speaking in an exclusive interview with South African newspaper “The Star,” the Moroccan top diplomat said that he firmly believes that strengthening ties between South Africa and Morocco “will be in the interest of the continent.”

Because “South Africa and Morocco are both recognized as major players on the continent and beyond,” Bourita argued, both countries “have every interest to better exploit the enormous potential they hold.” 

Morocco, according to Bourita, is convinced stronger cooperation with South Africa will in turn strengthen Africa’s position on the world stage. 

“The Kingdom has called for more effective solidarity, cooperation and coordination in Africa, to enable our continent to be more resilient and better prepared for contingencies and emergencies,” he said, referring to the lasting impacts the COVID-19 crisis has had on the continent. 

“Morocco and South Africa are among the very few African countries that currently have the tools and skills to effectively accommodate the needs of the African continent in vaccines and medical equipment against Covid-19,” he added.

Bourita explained that since Morocco and South Africa are the largest African investors on the continent and in their respective regions, they have a duty to play a major role in the African integration process.

In one of his questions to Bourita, Sifiso Mahlangu, The Star’s editor, recalled Morocco’s role in black South Afria’sca’s struggle against Apartheid. 

“Morocco and South Africa share a common history. One needs to remember that the Kingdom of Morocco was among the staunchest supporters of ANC, and among the first African countries to support militarily, logistically and diplomatically,” noted the South African journalist. 

In response to the question of what has changed in the once strong, fraternal relations between Morocco and the ANC, South Africa’s ruling party in the past three decades, Bourita said that “nothing has changed.” He went on to recall that “Nelson Mandela and South African freedom fighters were training in eastern Morocco, between the cities of Oujda and Berkane.”

If anything has changed, Bourita suggested, it is South Africa’s relentless hostility when it comes to the Western Sahara question. He said, “I would argue that the existence of differences in opinion is a healthy thing. But, the attitude of our brothers in Pretoria on the issue of the Moroccan Sahara, unfortunately, has too often gone beyond a difference of opinion but has been of adversity.”

He reiterated Morocco’s readiness and openness to engage in dialogue with South Africa, as long as this happens within the norms of “mutual respect and a sincere desire to clean up relations and bring them to their full potential.”

On Western Sahara, an important point of contention between the two countries, Bourita reaffirmed Morocco's stance, saying that “the autonomy initiative under Moroccan sovereignty is the one and only way to a final solution to this regional dispute.”

Pointing out the latest developments in the territorial dispute in southern Morocco, the Moroccan minister emphasized the importance for foreign commentators and politicians to get their facts right when it comes to the history of the conflict - as well as the best way forward.  

He spoke of the historical foundations of Morocco’s sovereignty over the territory, and of the increasing international support for Rabat’s 2007 Autonomy Plan as the most viable way out of the four-decade long political and diplomatic stasis in Western Sahara.  

Morocco’s autonomy plan calls for local political autonomy under Moroccan sovereignty, and the consensus in UN circles is that the proposal is a “serious” and “credible” step in the direction of a lasting political solution to the Sahara crisis. To date, over fifty countries have expressed their unequivocal support for the Moroccan autonomy initiative. 

Most recently, twenty-five countries, including 15 from Africa,  opened diplomatic representations in Laayoune and Dakhla,  the two main cities in Morocco’s southern provinces. 

However, despite the increasing pro-Morocco momentum around the Western Sahara issue, South Africa remains a loyal polisario sympathizer, deepening  the divergences between Pretoria and Rabat.

Bourita’s hopeful tone about a potential South Africa-Morocco rapprochement is not the first time Morocco has signalled a desire to build bridges with a country it considers as an important African partner. 

Youssef Amrani, a veteran and revered diplomat whose appointment as Morocco’s ambassador to South Africa was considered to “herald the beginning of a whole new era” in the crucial relationship between two continental leaders, has also been a fierce advocate of the need for Pretoria and Rabat to team up to inspire a new age of African unity and confidence.

As established regional leaders with visions for a more prosperous Africa, Amrani told a gathering of intellectuals and diplomats in Pretoria in August 2019, diplomatic Morocco and South Africa are key to a successful African integration.

 "We are convinced that the current process of globalization can not continue without a developed, prosperous and self-sufficient Africa," he said

Emer Cooke, Executive Director, European Medicines Agency, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

28 February 2021

Dear Sirs/Mesdames,

FOR THE URGENT PERSONAL ATTENTION OF: EMER COOKE, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE EUROPEAN MEDICINES AGENCY

As physicians and scientists, we are supportive in principle of the use of new medical interventions which are appropriately developed and deployed, having obtained informed consent from the patient. This stance encompasses vaccines in the same way as therapeutics.

We note that a wide range of side effects is being reported following vaccination of previously healthy younger individuals with the gene-based COVID-19 vaccines. Moreover, there have been numerous media reports from around the world of care homes being struck by COVID-19 within days of vaccination of residents. While we recognise that these occurrences might, every one of them, have been unfortunate coincidences, we are concerned that there has been and there continues to be inadequate scrutiny of the possible causes of illness or death under these circumstances, and especially so in the absence of post-mortems examinations.

In particular, we question whether cardinal issues regarding the safety of the vaccines were adequately addressed prior to their approval by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

As a matter of great urgency, we herewith request that the EMA provide us with responses to the following issues:

1. Following intramuscular injection, it must be expected that the gene-based vaccines will reach the bloodstream and disseminate throughout the body [1]. We request evidence that this possibility was excluded in pre-clinical animal models with all three vaccines prior to their approval for use in humans by the EMA.

2. If such evidence is not available, it must be expected that the vaccines will remain entrapped in the circulation and be taken up by endothelial cells. There is reason to assume that this will happen particularly at sites of slow blood flow, i.e. in small vessels and capillaries [2]. We request evidence that this probability was excluded in pre-clinical animal models with all three vaccines prior to their approval for use in humans by the EMA.

3. If such evidence is not available, it must be expected that during expression of the vaccines’ nucleic acids, peptides derived from the spike protein will be presented via the MHC I — pathway at the luminal surface of the cells. Many healthy individuals have CD8-lymphocytes that recognize such peptides, which may be due to prior COVID infection, but also to cross-reactions with other types of Coronavirus [3; 4] [5]. We must assume that these lymphocytes will mount an attack on the respective cells. We request evidence that this probability was excluded in pre-clinical animal models with all three vaccines prior to their approval for use in humans by the EMA.

4. If such evidence is not available, it must be expected that endothelial damage with subsequent triggering of blood coagulation via platelet activation will ensue at countless sites throughout the body. We request evidence that this probability was excluded in pre-clinical animal models with all three vaccines prior to their approval for use in humans by the EMA.

5. If such evidence is not available, it must be expected that this will lead to a drop in platelet counts, appearance of D-dimers in the blood, and to myriad ischaemic lesions throughout the body including in the brain, spinal cord and heart. Bleeding disorders might occur in the wake of this novel type of DIC-syndrome including, amongst other possibilities, profuse bleedings and haemorrhagic stroke. We request evidence that all these possibilities were excluded in pre-clinical animal models with all three vaccines prior to their approval for use in humans by the EMA.

6. The SARS-CoV-2 spike protein binds to the ACE2 receptor on platelets, which results in their activation [6]. Thrombocytopenia has been reported in severe cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection [7]. Thrombocytopenia has also been reported in vaccinated individuals [8]. We request evidence that the potential danger of platelet activation that would also lead to disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) was excluded with all three vaccines prior to their approval for use in humans by the EMA.

7. The sweeping across the globe of SARS-CoV-2 created a pandemic of illness associated with many deaths. However, by the time of consideration for approval of the vaccines, the health systems of most countries were no longer under imminent threat of being overwhelmed because a growing proportion of the world had already been infected and the worst of the pandemic had already abated. Consequently, we demand conclusive evidence that an actual emergency existed at the time of the EMA granting Conditional Marketing Authorisation to the manufacturers of all three vaccines, to justify their approval for use in humans by the EMA, purportedly because of such an emergency.

Should all such evidence not be available, we demand that approval for use of the gene-based vaccines be withdrawn until all the above issues have been properly addressed by the exercise of due diligence by the EMA.

There are serious concerns, including but not confined to those outlined above, that the approval of the COVID-19 vaccines by the EMA was premature and reckless, and that the administration of the vaccines constituted and still does constitute “human experimentation”, which was and still is in violation of the Nuremberg Code.

In view of the urgency of the situation, we request that you reply to this email within seven days and address all our concerns substantively. Should you choose not to comply with this reasonable request, we will make this letter public.
