Philippine Troops Arrest Marawi Militants' Main Financier
TEHRAN (FNA)- Philippine security forces arrested on Wednesday the main financier and logistics supporter of the pro-ISIL militants who have for weeks been battling government troops for control of a Southern town.

The militants from a faction known as the Maute group, seized the town or Marawi on May 23 and are resisting daily assaults by government forces using aircraft and artillery, and with help from allies the United States and Australia, Reuters reported.

The fighting in the largely Muslim town in South of the predominantly Christian Philippines has alarmed neighbors, fearful that ISIL is bent on gaining a foothold in the region as it loses ground in the Middle East.

An army spokesman, Brigadier-General Gilbert Gapay, said security forces raided a village not far from Marawi and detained three suspects found with ammunition and material for making bombs.

One of those detained was an important supporter of the Maute group who Gapay identified as Monaliza Romato, alias Monay.

The military announced that the woman is a niece of the matriarch of the Maute clan, whose men-folk lead the Marawi attack. Two of seven Maute brothers, Omar and Abdullah, were educated in the Middle East, and were the main planners of the assault on Marawi.

"Monay has replaced her aunt as the main financier and logistic supporter of the militant group," Gapay said in a statement.

"The arrest will adversely affect the logistics support network of the group," he added.

The raid, seizure of weapons and the arrests would also prevent the militants from mounting diversionary attacks, he stressed.

On Wednesday, military aircraft dropped bombs on the town while ground forces tried to advance from house to house.

More than 400 people have been killed in the fighting in Marawi. Hundreds of thousands have been displaced and about 20 percent of the center of the town has been destroyed.

President Rodrigo Duterte imposed martial law on Mindanao island, where Marawi is located, for 60 days when the fighting erupted and Defence Secretary Delfin Lorenzana announced that there was pressure on the military to defeat the militants before it expires on July 23.

握り飯を何で包むか

徘徊時の昼食には、握り飯が便利。
だが、海苔は食べなくなったので、これを包むものがない。
アルミフォイルは金属の味がする。

ラップフィルムでは、水分が抜けずに飯がまずくなる。

ある日の午後、駅のホームで中学生の野球少年が、小さな保冷箱から果物の入った器を取り出して食べると続いて紙に包んだ握り飯を出して食べた。

こんなふうに包めるのか。あの紙はなんだろう。ワックスペーパーに見えたが。

家にあったクッキングシートで握り飯を包み、ラップフィルムでゆったりと包む。

数時間経過、食べようと取り出すと、クッキングシートが水分を吸ってべちゃべちゃ。ご飯は、水分が飛んだ感じだ。

少しご飯が硬い感じもするが、ラップフィルムで包むよりよほどうまい。

ワックスペーパーでは水分が逃げないはずだが、こちらを使ったらどうなんだろう。

握り飯に、クッキングシートやワックスペーパーを使っている方おられますか?

・・・・・

この記事は、2017/7/3の午前10時に掲載しました。アクセスはありますが、コメントが3件しかありません。

そんなことも知らないの? こうするのよ! という声が何時間もしないうちに寄せられると見込んでいたのです。一方で相変わらず海苔を使っている家が多いんだろうなという予想もありました。

結果的には、後者でしたね。「西日本産野菜の自家製漬け物」を作り漬物で巻いているなどという方がそうそうおられるとは思いません。バーガー袋を使っている方はおられるかもしれませんが。

「アルミホイルで包んでいます。金属臭は気になりません。」
「ラップフィルムで包んでいます。オニギリの水分を調節してベタベタにならないようにしています。」
などというコメントは来ませんでした。

いや、管理人は海苔がすべて危険だとは考えていません。ですが、ある方のコメントに「福島産」の海苔をもらったとありました。国産海苔の中には福島産もあるのです。

給食の親子丼で国産の刻み海苔を使って食中毒を引き起こした例があります。

管理人の問題意識は、例えば、濃厚汚染地帯に現地調査に入ったときに、屋外の青空の下で昼飯を食べなければならないのです。公園などで。手を洗う場所がないこともあります。

その場合、放射性物質が浮遊している可能性があるので、弁当箱などを広げると浮遊物が入る恐れがあります。そういう汚染環境では弁当箱を広げるよりも、握り飯が包みからのぞいた状態でかぶりつくのがホコリの混入防止には良いと考えているのです。

管理人が見かけた野球少年は、駅のホームのベンチで食べていましたが、彼らはグラウンドの端で食べることもあるでしょう。風があれば砂ホコリが舞います。公園で遊びまわってその夜から高熱を出した例も最近伝えられました。

そんな環境での昼飯のことを想定しているのです。車の中や職場の屋内でのことではありません。一日、屋外で仕事をし、昼食も道路わきに座り込んで摂っている方も多いのです。道路工事の警備員に場所を提供する方はおられますか?

野球少年が住んでいる地域は、所属チームから判断して濃厚汚染地帯です。その野球少年の母親は、おそらくはチーム全員が一緒に昼飯を食べる場合を想定して、いろいろ配慮しているのだろうと受け止めました。

料理がお得意の方ももちろんおられると思います。ですが、被曝回避のためには、その人の置かれた環境にもっと配慮が必要だと言いたいのです。

いいですか? 読者の皆さんに申し上げますが、皆さんの被曝回避努力はいい加減で自己満足なものでしかありません。

家族が深刻な病気を発症しても、「あんなに気をつけていたのに」などと言う資格はありません。

反論、異論大歓迎! 2017/7/5のコメント。

ここ数か月、友人とそのお子さんのサポートにあたっていて
記事を読ませては頂いておりましたが、コメントまでの時間が取れずにおりました。

おにぎりですが、ご指摘通りうちではまだ海苔を使用しています。在住地のメーカーのものは産地が別であっても購入しませんが。
昔から船を使って広範囲に流通しています。
これでも徐々に年数回にまで減らしています・・・。
・・・私は友人から佐賀産の海苔をもらって食べていましたが、あるとき読者から「私なら海苔を剥がして食べる」というコメントをもらい、ガーン! それもそうだと海苔を止めました。

味噌汁は徐々に和だしの使用をやめて、完全にコンソメなどにすり替わりました。
・・・和風だしは何年も使っていません。中華のだしも恐る恐るです。ブイヨンで十分ごまかせます。

お米は土鍋で炊いて、仕上げは冷ましてからラップに包んでいます。
世間では食中毒がと言われていますが、
熱いご飯を塩多めの手で握ったおにぎりの方がおいしいです。
・・・1回の炊飯で2回分のご飯を炊いています。ボトル水と電気の節約のためです。

先日、ちゃんと食事をしているか心配で友人にパンを焼いたのですが、間に合わせの材料ですが「気持ちが入っていておいしい」と言ってくれました。
家族にも機械的にならず、気持ちも大切だと思ったところです。
・・・自家製のパンはすぐ傷みますが、胃がもたれることがありません。現地調査の際には、これをかりっと焼いてビニール袋に入れておき、その中に口を突っ込んで食べます。

外でのお弁当もそうですが、河原でバーベキューは
風も強く、海からの風も上がってくるので心配です。
・・・バーベキュー、日本ではとっくにやってはならない屋外行事になりました。もともとよく炭を起さないと赤外線では焼けません。下ごしらえも必要、後始末も・・・煙でいぶしてよー食べるなぁといつも眺めています。

それから、子どもに「ジュースを外で飲むなら何味がいい?」
と聞かれるようになりました。
小学生にわかるように一覧表?リスク表などできないかと考えています。
こんな感じでいいのか悪いのか。ツッコまれそうです。

イノシシ>牛>豚>鶏>羊
・・・イノシシは論外です。羊はもちろん南半球産ですね。

ペットボトルのジュース>紙パックのジュース>紙コップの自販機ジュース
・・・衛生面では自販機ジュースはどうでしょう。生ビールはビールサーバーの洗浄度合いにより味がゼンゼン違います。缶入りのものが衛生面では安心です。欧州では炭酸入りのミネラルウォーターがノンガスよりも安全です。

ブルーベリー>ミックスベリー>イチゴ>モモ>メロン>リンゴ>オレンジ>みかん>ぶどう>パイナップル>マンゴー>キウイ>アボカド
・・・フロリダ産かんきつは汚染懸念があります。最高級伊予産みかんは伊方の汚染があるはずです。

米>そば>うどん>ラーメン>パン>焼きそば>パスタ
・・・国産ソバ使用は、私は食べません。

場所や季節により産地や流通も変わるし、
何かいい方法はないものかと思案中です。
外であまり食べなくてもいいよう、
主人は飲み会前に家で食事をとってから出かけます。

・・・良いことです。私は知らない人と会食せざるを得なければそうします。今は、私の放射脳を理解する人としか会食しません。

中京でもこの春〜初夏は外の空気がいつもと違うように思います。
のどに異変の声を多く聞きました。
「今日は空気が悪くて」と友人に話すと、全員から本人又は家族の不調が帰ってきました。

ロシアがシリアの非エスカレーションゾーンに軍隊を配備する可能性

PRESSTV2017/7/4
Russia has announced that it may deploy troops to de-escalation zones in Syria after agreement from Turkey and Iran.

Russian negotiator Alexander Lavrentyev made the announcement during talks being held in the Kazakh capital Astana on Tuesday.

"Overall, (the agreement) provides for the presence of Russian military police in the buffer zones, but once again this matter has not been agreed yet…Depending on when the documents on safe zones are signed, I think one should expect concrete measures on the deployment of forces within 2-3 weeks," he said.

"So far it is hard to talk about presence of the Russian observers and representatives of the Russian defense ministry. But nevertheless overall there are plans for the Russian military police presence in the buffer zones. But still this matter has not been fully agreed yet. It will be related to the question about the status of de-escalation monitoring forces," he added.

The final document pertaining to the de-escalation zones are expected to be signed on Wednesday, he added, noting that the principles of the zones have already been agreed upon in the former rounds of the talks.

In May, Russia, Iran and Turkey agreed to establish four "de-escalation zones" in Syria.

Lavrentyev added that Russia and its partners are still engaged in negotiations concerning detailed maps and other conditions related to the Idlib province and southern regions while the borders of two other zones, in Homs province and near Damascus, had been agreed upon.

"One thing is to work with maps and another one is to apply it to reality on the ground which is rather complicated. And this process of course takes a long time. But nevertheless I would like to say that we have practically determined the contact lines and borders of the second and third de-escalation zones. We still have questions on Idlib and the southern zone," he added.

The fifth round of Astana talks kicked off earlier on Tuesday.

More than 2.5 million people are believed to be living in the general area of the four zones.

The Syrian army unilaterally announced a halt to fighting until midnight July 6 in one of the zones that spans the southern provinces of Dara’a, Quneitra, and Sweida.

サハリンで魔術を使うと疑われた寡婦の家が焼かれる

Witch-hunt in 2017: People suspicious of evil powers burn widow's house in Russia's Far East
A 26-year-old woman with a child has been left homeless in the Sakhalin region after fellow villagers, accusing the widow of witchcraft, allegedly burnt her house, Russian media report.

Varvara Genatulina, whose husband committed suicide at the age of 38, has been accused of being responsible for the man's death by neighbors in the Pobedino village.

Somehow, the suspicious villagers have also connected two other suicides in their community to the woman. They say, in 2004 a boy who went to school with Genatulina, killed himself. Recently, another local, whom the woman is said to have known, also committed suicide.

After the funeral of the latter, the widow was proclaimed a witch, and her house was burned to the ground. The fire wasn't an accident, but arson, one of the locals, Oleg Vnukov said.

Vnukov decided to protect the now homeless woman and her child and addressed the issue with the Russian association of lawyers. Having written a letter to the organization to make the case public, the man blamed local authorities for not providing enough job opportunities in the region, making people desperate.

The lawyers said such cases of witch-hunts and inquisitions are not unusual for remote rural areas with low levels of employment and poor living conditions, Mir 24 reported.

Casket containing child organs found on Philadelphia street
An evening stroll turned gruesome in Philadelphia Monday, when a casket, discovered across the street from a cemetery, was found to contain a bag of organs belonging to either an infant or a child.

“What was in the bag was sick,” Chris James, one of the first to discover the casket shortly after 9pm, told RT. “We were curious to see what was inside but it dangerous in many way to touch something so random,” he said.

James, who streamed the incident live on his Facebook page, said another witness called police who opened the casket to find layers of cloth which once removed, revealed the bag containing the organs.

テレサ・メイは英国内でのサウジのテロとの結びつきに関するレポートを葬り去るか

FARSNEWS2017/7/4
May to Bury Report on Saudi Terror Links in UK
TEHRAN (FNA)- A report said UK Prime Minister Theresa May is not likely to release the findings of an investigation into Saudi Arabia’s funding of militant groups across Britain, out of fear that the move would hurt relations with the Middle Eastern ally.

Commissioned by former UK Prime Minister David Cameron in December 2015, when May was Home Secretary, the report was due to be completed by mid-April and has been in May’s possession for at least six months, the Independent reported.

The investigation was aimed at exploring the origins and the scale of funding of terror groups within the UK. It also sought to expose the international money streams that were used to fund such groups.

The probe was ordered under an agreement between the ruling Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats in return for supporting the extension of UK’s participation in the US-led military campaign against purported terrorist positions inside Syria.

When asked by Green MP Caroline Lucas about the report, she said it had “improved the Government’s understanding of the nature, scale and sources of funding for Islamist extremism in the UK.”

“Ministers are considering advice on what is able to be published and will report to Parliament with an update in due course,” she added.

The Home Office confirmed to The Guardian last month that the report had yet to be completed and might never be released to the public because of its “very sensitive” content.

Since becoming prime minister, May has courted the oil-rich kingdom, which is also London’s biggest weapons buyer.

She approved a £3.5 billion weapons export license to Saudi Arabia earlier this year, despite an ongoing legal case that accuses her government of complicity in the kingdom’s war crimes in Yemen.

The UK also views Saudi Arabia as one of its main trading partners after leaving the European Union (EU). This while Saudis, under their new Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman are trying to diversify the country’s economy by reducing dependence on oil.

In an interview with The Guardian, Lucas said May’s delay in publishing the report was “astonishing,” specially in the wake of the recent wave of terror attacks that hit London and Manchester.

“To defeat terror it’s vital that politicians have full view of the facts, even if they are inconvenient for the government,” she said.

The behavior has also drawn criticism from Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn, who says to fight extremism in the UK May needs to start with "Saudi Arabia and the (Persian) Gulf sates."

“It is no good Theresa May suppressing a report into the foreign funding of extremist groups. We have to get serious about cutting off the funding to these terror networks, including Isis, here and in the Middle East,” he said during the campaign for the June 8 general election.

Saudi Arabia ‘top of the list’ of foreign funding for British terrorists – think tank
Britain’s major trade and security partner in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, is the main source of funding for Islamist extremism in the UK, a damning new report by the neo-conservative Henry Jackson Society (HJS) claims.

According to the HJS, money donated to terrorist organizations operating in Britain can be traced back to the Gulf states.

It says the Saudis’ 60-year commitment to the diffusion of Wahhabism, a hardline version of Islam, has led to the funding of British mosques and institutions linked to the wave of attacks in Europe over the last few years.

“There is a clear and growing link between foreign funding of Islamist extremism and the violent terrorism we have witnessed across the UK and Europe,” said the report’s author, Tom Wilson.

“The key now is to get ahead of the issue and find out the full extent of what has been going on. A public inquiry would go some way to informing the debate.”

The report follows news that Prime Minister Theresa May has been “sitting” on an independent inquiry into foreign backing of British extremism.

The report is thought to contain incriminating evidence of Saudi funding. Publishing its findings could prove seriously damaging for UK-Saudi relations and the British government’s credibility at a time when the country urgently needs to court post-Brexit trading partners.

May in particular has been keen on strengthening Britain’s trade and diplomatic relationship with the Gulf kingdom.

“While entities from across the Gulf and Iran have been guilty of advancing extremism, those in Saudi Arabia are undoubtedly at the top of the list,” Wilson said.

“Research indicates that some Saudi individuals and foundations have been apparently heavily involved in exporting an illiberal, bigoted Wahhabi ideology.”

The HJS claims it found “numerous” cases of Britons who were radicalized through what are believed to be foreign-funded groups and preachers. Many of these later joined jihadist groups in Syria and Iraq.

“This report from the Henry Jackson Society sheds light on what are extremely worrying links between Saudi Arabia and the funding of extremism here in the UK,” said Labour MP Dan Jarvis, according to the BBC.

“In the wake of the terrible and tragic terrorist attacks we’ve seen this year, it is vital that we use every tool at our disposal to protect our communities. This includes identifying the networks that promote and support extremism and shutting down the financial networks that fund it.

“I’m calling on the government to release its foreign funding report, and guarantee that the new counter-extremism commission will make tackling the funding of extremism a priority.”

A Whitehall spokesman said the government is “determined to cut off the funding which fuels the evils of extremism and terrorism, and will work closely with international partners to tackle this shared global threat, including at the upcoming G20 summit.”
