MAKHUL, Palestinian Territories (AFP) Israeli troops on Friday manhandled a group of European diplomats as they tried to hand out tents to Palestinian Bedouins whose West Bank homes were destroyed by the army.
The troops used force to disperse the diplomats who had accompanied aid workers to the village of Makhul in the Jordan Valley, an AFP photographer said.
French diplomat Marion Fesneau-Castaing was dragged out of an aid truck, the photographer said.
A European diplomatic source said the woman was yanked out of the truck by Israeli soldiers who later confiscated the vehicle.
The source, who declined to be named, said diplomats from France, Britain, Greece, Ireland, Spain and Sweden had accompanied aid workers to Makhul to help hand out tents to the Bedouins.
“There was an attempt to erect tents… but the security forces intervened to impose a Supreme Court decision,” an army spokeswoman told AFP, adding that three Palestinians were arrested after stone-throwing.
The army on Monday demolished property built by the Bedouins in Mahul, after the court ruled they had been erected without building permits and declared the area a “closed military zone”.
The move forced the displacement of 10 families, including 16 children, the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said.
The UN’s humanitarian coordinator James Rawley expressed “deep concern” over Friday’s incident and the demolitions that evicted Palestinians from their property.
“The United Nations and its partners remain committed to providing humanitarian assistance to populations in immediate need,” Rawley said, after Israeli troops prevented the distribution of aid.
Pope Francis has sensationally said the Catholic Church is “obsessed” with preaching about issues like abortion and gay marriage and that it needs to stop interfering.
In an incredibly frank interview with the Italian Jesuit journal La Civilt Cattolica, the Pope said the church has the right to express its opinions but not to “interfere spiritually” in the lives of gays and lesbians.
Dismissing critics who say he should be more vocal about fighting abortion and gay marriage, the Pope said the Church “sometimes locked itself up in small things.”
Describing his new vision for the church he said: We have to find a new balance, saying it should be a home for all and not a small chapel.
“Otherwise,” the Pope continued, even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards.
He added that women must play a more key role in church decisions but emphatically stated that the “door is closed,” on women’s ordination.
“The feminine genius is needed wherever we make important decisions,” he said. “The church cannot be herself without the woman and her role.”
Expanding on the explosive comments he made about homosexuality in July when he was returning to Rome from Rio de Janeiro, where he had celebrated World Youth Day, the Pope said he has no right to judge anyone from the LGBT community.
A person once asked me, in a provocative manner, if I approved of homosexuality, he said in the interview.
I replied with another question: Tell me: when God looks at a gay person, does he endorse the existence of this person with love, or reject and condemn this person? We must always consider the person.
A federal judge ruled last week that Ohio, which bans gay marriage, must recognize the marriage of two men wed this month in Maryland. The ruling is seen as likely to unleash more lawsuits challenging states that don’t allow same-sex unions to recognize marriages legalized in other states.
AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:
For the first time, a state has been forced by a federal court to recognize a gay marriage from another state. The ruling comes just weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, and as NPR’s Tovia Smith reports, that’s opened up a new front in the fight for gay marriage.
TOVIA SMITH, BYLINE: Federal District Court Judge Timothy Black called the case as simple as it is sad. An Ohio man who’d been with his partner more than two decades was dying of Lou Gehrig’s disease. The couple wanted eventually to be laid to rest beside each other, but a family plot allowed only spouses and Ohio bans gay marriage. So the two men chartered a special medical jet to Maryland, where gay marriage is legal and held a simple ceremony on the runway.
UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: John and Jim, I was going to say take each other’s hand, but I don’t think you’ve let go.
SMITH: Cincinnati.com recorded the two grooms, Jim Obergefell and John Arthur, who was propped up on his hospital gurney to say his vows.
JOHN ARTHUR: With this ring, I thee wed.
JIM OBERGEFELL: He was able to say with this ring I thee wed, and those were the most beautiful words I could hear.
SMITH: After hugs and kisses, the newlyweds immediately lifted off and returned to Ohio to start the legal battle to get their Maryland same-sex marriage recognized back home. It took just days. Judge Black cited the U.S. Supreme Court DOMA decision and ruled that just as the federal government can’t ignore a same-sex marriage from a state where it’s legal, neither can another state, much to Obergefell’s delight.

I begin with this scene, featuring two of the stalwarts expected at the imminent annual meeting of the Bilderberg Group, in honour of those who believe that this infamously secretive outfit is Ian Flemings S.P.E.C.T.R.E. brought to life. Since its inception in the Netherlands in 1954, so many have come to regard it as a deeply sinister organisation bent on worldwide domination that it seems almost cruel to reprise one of the very few facts we do know: that the venue for Thursdays gathering is not a subterranean cavern staffed by boiler-suited drones tending stolen nuclear warheads, but a hotel, more commonly patronised by England footballers, in Watford.
Is it credible that a truly evil network would meet in an unglamorous suburb famous as Elton Johns birthplace (wrongly, he was actually born in Pinner)? Those convinced that Watford is no bar to the hatching of fiendish plots will pitch up at The Grove on Thursday to shout abuse at the predominantly Anglo-European Goliaths of statesmanship, commerce, academia, media, intelligence and the military. In accord with solemn Bilderberg tradition, the hotel and its grounds (in which Bilderbergians are thought to bond primally by communally peeing against trees) will be off-limits to all but the members. The perimeter will be heavily guarded lest protesters distress the poor loves with their chants. To this end, fellow taxpayers, you and I will be stumping up a couple of million quid for the policing.
While that equates to a few pence each, it does seem a bit rich to be subsidising a jolly for the extremely powerful about which we will learn precisely nothing. No outsider is ever permitted to attend the talks, formal and informal, and no Bilderbergian to divulge a word of what is said. Why such an organisation provokes such suspicion is beyond me. Yet for no sounder reasons than the omerta and the rarefied nature of the yearly-changing gang, it excites a vast range of conspiracy theories from both the bananas Left and the crackpot Right.
Some posit that, despite guest lists having featured Margaret Thatcher and a smattering of European royalty (the Princes Philip and Charles included), Bilderberg exists to impose Marxist totalitarianism across the globe. Disregarding the occasional attendance of Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and Shirley Williams, others see it as a fascist powerhouse pulling the strings of its puppets in citadels of democratic power in pursuance of yes, I think you guessed it a New World Order.
Among its fiercest critics is Lyndon Larouche, a serial US presidential wannabe turned shock jock, who is convinced that the worldwide drugs trade is controlled by our Queen. Sane people have their concerns too, and there is something weird and unsettling about a network of massively influential people so dedicated to guarding its privacy.
In 2001, in a rare breach of the code of silence, founder member Denis Healey admitted this: To say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair. We couldnt go on forever fighting one another for nothing and killing people So we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing.
Lord Healey is a mischievous man (he used to answer his telephone claiming to be a Chinese laundry), so perhaps we should take the world government schtick with a tub of Saxa. But if true, is the peacenik pipedream of a utopian crypto-oligarchy formed in the early days of the Cold War so terrible? Or was that a clumsy cover story for the real-life S.P.E.C.T.R.E.?
So many questions, so few answers. Although the Group has yielded to criticism this year by appending a press office, the mysteries will endure. If they are to be penetrated, we need not 007, but a George Smiley figure to turn the Bilderberg Karla. But who is the giant spider at the centre of the web? Is it Dr Kissinger, cast to type, or Ken Clarke, hiding in plain sight as a cuddly centrist? Could it be Bill Clinton, the liberal philanthropist George Soros, or a former director of the CIA? Might the mastermind, as Mr Larouche must suspect, be the woman who tomorrow celebrates the 60th anniversary of her Coronation?
For all the peculiarity, the Bilderberg Group provides a useful public service. It is all things to all manner of paranoiacs, and an equal opportunities offender of every brand of conspiracy theorist. What they discuss in the woods, we will probably never learn. But I have a feeling it would be a grave disappointment if we did, and that a microphone hidden in Urination Ash Tree 17 would relay nothing more blood-chilling than Mr Clarke asking Dr Kissinger if he knew how Notts were getting on in the county cricket, or Peter Mandelson sharing a Mary Berry cake recipe with ex-Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands.
A protester at the notorious Occupy London camp site on the foot of St Paul’s Cathedral today denied twice raping a woman in one of the tents. Malcolm Blackman, 46, struck up a “relationship” with the woman at the tent city in December 2011. The woman, who waited several months before reporting the allegations to police, said she woke up in her tent late on January 21 or in the early hours of January 22 2012 to find Blackman, of Gloucester Street, Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, raping her

Ramallah: The murders of four women since the beginning of the year on family honour grounds in the West Bank has motivated womens organisations to demand a law against the practice.
Womens groups have organised several protests in various West Bank cities with further activities planned. The protesters are demanding an immediate implementation of a fair and tough law that fully protects women from violence and murder on honour grounds.
Lubna Al Ashqar, Media Coordinator at the Palestinian Womens Affairs Team, said in an official statement that Palestinian society holds the woman accountable for family honour crimes. In the view of our society, the victim is accused and blamed in the event the murder takes place, she said. The woman becomes the reason for the crime not the victim. This perspective should be changed immediately.
West Bank-based women organisations urged the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and the Palestinian government to impose a law that protects women from violence, saying that action should be taken to provide women with the necessary protection.
Article continues below
Women in Palestine urgently need a civilised law which protects their lives, said Lubna.
The organisations will hold several strikes in front of various Palestinian institutions to alert them to the need for the implementation of a law that protects woman. The theme is No to Murdering Women.
During last year (2012) 13 women were murdered on family honour grounds in the Palestinian territories, with the number expected to rise this year and in the years to come.
Sabah Salamah, a womans rights activist, said that the Palestinian government should show seriousness about murder crimes against women. Laws that deter men from murdering women should be put in place to spare more womens lives in Palestine, she told Gulf News.

A few days before a bill to legalize gay marriage has its first committee hearings at the state Capitol, opponents turned out by the hundreds to urge lawmakers to vote it down.
“Proponents of same-sex marriage want us to believe that this is inevitable, this is going to come no matter what we do, so we might as well pack up, go back to our homes and stop fighting. We will never stop fighting for the truth!” Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage, told a crowd in the Rotunda Thursday, March 7.
Capitol security estimated the gathering — which spread from the first to the second and third floors — at about 750 people, roughly the same number they say attended a similar rally last month by supporters

Speakers included local clergy, professors and Republican lawmakers who support current state law that bans same-sex marriage.
“Manmade laws cannot change the natural order of things,” said Sam Crabtree, executive pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church. “This weekend, by legislation, we will change our clocks to daylight savings time. But the sun will still come up according to its nature. The tides will still come in and go out, with total disregard for manmade laws,” he said. “Marriage is what it is.”
The bill to legalize same-sex marriage, unveiled last week, is expected to have its first committee hearings in the Democratic-Farmer-Labor-controlled House and Senate on Tuesday. The next stop would be the floor of each
Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton has said he’d sign a gay-marriage bill if it reaches his desk.
Sen. Warren Limmer, R-Maple Grove, who sponsored the bill that placed an amendment on the ballot last fall that would have written man-woman marriage into the state constitution, thanked the crowd for continuing to push for traditional marriage despite the amendment’s defeat. “You know, in November, we thought it was a pretty desolate place to come back to the Capitol, but there is so much life, and energy and vibrancy here,” he said.
Barbara Roub of Maplewood attended Thursday’s gathering and held up a sign reading “One Man + One Woman” and “Don’t Lie to Children.”

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) In any other New England state, Chelsea Leyden could marry the woman shes been with for more than two years. But not in Rhode Island. Leyden hopes this is the year that distinction disappears.
I want to get married where I was born and raised, said Leyden, of Cranston. My family is here. I dont want to have to go to Massachusetts.
With gay marriage bills introduced in the states General Assembly and the House Speaker calling for a vote this month, Rhode Island again finds itself a battleground in the national debate over same-sex marriage. Supporters eager to capitalize on recent gains elsewhere in the nation tell The Associated Press theyre optimistic Rhode Island could be the next state to allow gay and lesbian couples to wed.
Voters in Maine, Maryland and Washington passed gay marriage referendums last fall, electing to join Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont and the District of Columbia in allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry. Meanwhile, in Minnesota, voters rejected a proposed state constitutional amendment that would have prohibited gay marriage, the first time such a ballot question has failed in the United States.
The momentum has longtime supporters in Rhode Island feeling optimistic about their chances this year. Theres a wave and we should ride it, House Speaker Gordon Fox said the day after the November election. Fox has called for the House to vote on gay marriage before the months end.
Rhode Island state Rep. Art Handy, D-Cranston, has sponsored gay marriage legislation during 11 legislative sessions. He was all smiles one day last week as he lobbied other House members to sign onto his bill as a co-sponsor.
I started with this in 2003, so I know how long its taken, Handy said. I’m optimistic this year. I think the speakers initiative to do it sooner rather than later helps.
Groups opposed to gay marriage are ready to play defense. Chris Plante, director of the state chapter of the National Organization for Marriage, said he expects a hard battle.
He said Fox wouldnt have called for a vote so soon if he wasnt sure, he said. Nonetheless, this is not a done deal. We will put up a very strong fight in the House and if were not successful we still have a very strong fight in the Senate.
Its likely to be months before Handy knows whether his bill succeeded. While supporters like their chances in the House, the state Senate remains a challenge. Opposition to gay marriage in the Senate doomed the last attempt at passing gay marriage in Rhode Island in 2011. Instead, lawmakers instead voted to allow gay and lesbian couples to form civil unions granting the same state rights and benefits as marriage.
