Title: Inventions and falsifications concerning the role of the Soviet Union
Inventions and falsifications concerning the role of the Soviet Union in the events
leading to the Second World War. Today
anti-Russian attacks regarding this time are often based on
falsified and distorted interpretations of the actions of the leadership
of the USSR at this period. The idea appears more and more
in the media that ‘a new Cold War has started’.

Title: The elephant in the room: Israel’s nuclear weapons
“One of the areas that we discussed is the deepening concern around
the potential pursuit of a nuclear weapon by Iran. ... Iran obtaining a
nuclear weapon would not only be a threat to Israel and a threat to the
United States, but would be profoundly destabilizing in the international
community as a whole and could set off a nuclear arms race in the Middle
East that would be extraordinarily dangerous for all concerned, including
for Iran.”

Title: The end of an Irish Foreign Policy?
An Bord Snip [Irish Government’s Expenditure Review Committee]
recommended: “A significant proportion of the Department
for Foreign Affairs expenditure is in respect of overseas
missions, most of which are small. Given the potential for
developing synergies between DFA and agencies such as Enterprise
Ireland, Tourism Ireland and An Bord Bia as well as the
potential establishment of a European External Action Service in
the event of the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, the Group
recommends that the network of embassies and consulates be
reduced from 76 to 55. The Group also recommends that Ambassador
posts routinely be graded at Principal Officer level, with
only the three or four largest missions graded at Assistant
Secretary level as compared with the 41 ambassadors who are
currently of Assistant Secretary grade or higher. The Group notes
that the Foreign Service Allowance is not taxable nor is it subject
to the pension levy or income levy and recommends that it be
reduced by 12.5% in recognition of the contributions made by
those serving in other areas of the public service.”


There was no opposition evident to this proposal and therefore
it is likely to go ahead.
