Trump called King Salman on Saturday and they discussed efforts being made to maintain supplies to ensure oil market stability and global economic growth according to Saudi state news agency SPA Saudi Arabia is the world`s top oil exporter and the de facto leader of OPEC which has been criticized by Trump for high oil prices Speaking at the United Nations General Assembly in New York last month Trump said OPEC members were "as usual ripping off the rest of the world" "We defend many of these nations for nothing and then they take advantage of us by giving us high oil prices Not good We want them to stop raising prices we want them to start lowering prices" Trump said He has also pressed other US allies such as Japan South Korea and Germany to take more of the financial burden of their defenseShimon once said "The message of the Jewish people to mankind is that faith and moral vision can triumph over all adversity" For Shimon that moral vision was rooted in an honest reckoning of the world as it is Born in the shtetl he said he felt "surrounded by a sea of thick and threatening forests" When his family got the chance to go to Palestine his beloved grandfathers parting words were simple: "Shimon stay a Jew" Propelled with that faith he found his home He found his purpose He found his lifes work But he was still a teenager when his grandfather was burned alive by the Nazis in the town where Shimon was born The synagogue in which he prayed became an inferno The railroad tracks that had carried him toward the Promised Land also delivered so many of his people to death camps And so from an early age Shimon bore witness to the cruelty that human beings could inflict on each other the ways that one group of people could dehumanize another; the particular madness of anti-Semitism which has run like a stain through history That understanding of mans ever-present sinfulness would steel him against hardship and make him vigilant against threats to Jewry around the world But that understanding would never harden his heart It would never extinguish his faith Instead it broadened his moral imagination and gave him the capacity to see all people as deserving of dignity and respect It helped him see not just the world as it is but the world as it should be What Shimon did to shape the story of Israel is well-chronicled Starting on the kibbutz he founded with his love Sonya he began the work of building a model community Ben Gurion called him to serve the Haganah at headquarters to make sure that the Jewish people had the armaments and the organization to secure their freedom After independence surrounded by enemies who denied Israels existence and sought to drive it into the sea the child who had wanted to be a "poet of stars" became a man who built Israels defense industry who laid the foundation for the formidable armed forces that won Israels wars His skill secured Israels strategic position His boldness sent Israeli commandos to Entebbe and rescued Jews from Ethiopia His statesmanship built an unbreakable bond with the United States of America and so many other countries His contributions didn’t end there Shimon also showed what people can do when they harness reason and science to a common cause He understood that a country without many natural resources could more than make up for it with the talents of its people He made hard choices to roll back inflation and climb up from a terrible economic crisis He championed the promise of science and technology to make the desert bloom and turned this tiny country into a central hub of the digital age making life better not just for people here but for people around the world Indeed Shimons contribution to this nation is so fundamental so pervasive that perhaps sometimes they can be overlooked For a younger generation Shimon was probably remembered more for a peace process that never reached its endpoint They would listen to critics on the left who might argue that Shimon did not fully acknowledge the failings of his nation or perhaps more numerous critics on the right who argued that he refused to see the true wickedness of the world and called him nave But whatever he shared with his family or his closest friends to the world he brushed off the critics And I know from my conversations with him that his pursuit of peace was never nave Every Yom HaShoah he read the names of the family that he lost As a young man he had fed his village by working in the fields during the day but then defending it by carrying a rifle at night He understood in this war-torn region where too often Arab youth are taught to hate Israel from an early age — he understood just how hard peace would be I’m sure he was alternatively angry and bemused to hear the same critics who called him hopelessly nave depend on the defense architecture that he himself had helped to build I dont believe he was nave But he understood from hard-earned experience that true security comes through making peace with your neighbors "We won them all" he said of Israels wars "But we did not win the greatest victory that we aspired to: release from the need to win victories" And just as he understood the practical necessity of peace Shimon believed that Israels exceptionalism was rooted not only in fidelity to the Jewish people but to the moral and ethical vision the precepts of his Jewish faith "The Jewish people werent born to rule another people" he would say "From the very first day we are against slaves and masters" Out of the hardships of the diaspora he found room in his heart for others who suffered He came to hate prejudice with the passion of one who knows how it feels to be its target Even in the face of terrorist attacks even after repeated disappointments at the negotiation table he insisted that as human beings Palestinians must be seen as equal in dignity to Jews and must therefore be equal in self-determination Because of his sense of justice his analysis of Israels security his understanding of Israels meaning he believed that the Zionist idea would be best protected when Palestinians too had a state of their own Of course we gather here in the knowledge that Shimon never saw his dream of peace fulfilled The region is going through a chaotic time Threats are ever present And yet he did not stop dreaming and he did not stop working By the time that I came to work with Shimon he was in the twilight of his years — although he might not admit it I would be the 10th US President since John F Kennedy to sit down with Shimon; the 10th to fall prey to his charms I think of him sitting in the Oval Office this final member of Israels founding generation under the portrait of George Washington telling me stories from the past but more often talking with enthusiasm of the present — his most recent lecture his next project his plans for the future the wonders of his grandchildren In many ways he reminded me of some other giants of the 20th century that Ive had the honor to meet — men like Nelson Mandela; women like Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth — leaders who have seen so much whose lives span such momentous epochs that they find no need to posture or traffic in whats popular in the moment; people who speak with depth and knowledge not in sound bites They find no interest in polls or fads And like these leaders Shimon could be true to his convictions even if they cut against the grain of current opinion He knew better than the cynic that if you look out over the arc of history human beings should be filled not with fear but with hope I’m sure that’s why he was so excited about technology — because for him it symbolized the march of human progress And its why he loved so much to talk about young people — because he saw young people unburdened by the prejudices of the past Its why he believed in miracles — because in Israel he saw a miracle come true As Americans and Israelis we often talk about the unbreakable bonds between our nations And yes these bonds encompass common interests — vital cooperation that makes both our nations more secure But today we are reminded that the bonds which matter most run deeper Anchored in a Judeo-Christian tradition we believe in the irreducible value of every human being Our nations were built on that idea They were built in large part by stubborn idealists and striving immigrants including those who had fled war and fled oppression Both our nations have flaws that we have not always fixed corners of our history which date back to our founding that we do not always squarely address But because our founders planted not just flags in the eternal soil but also planted the seeds of democracy we have the ability to always pursue a better world We have the capacity to do what is right As an American as a Christian a person partly of African descent born in Hawaii — a place that could not be further than where Shimon spent his youth — I took great pleasure in my friendship with this older wiser man We shared a love of words and books and history And perhaps like most politicians we shared too great a joy in hearing ourselves talk But beyond that I think our friendship was rooted in the fact that I could somehow see myself in his story and maybe he could see himself in mine Because for all of our differences both of us had lived such unlikely lives It was so surprising to see the two of us where we had started talking together in the White House meeting here in Israel And I think both of us understood that we were here only because in some way we reflected the magnificent story of our nations Shimons story the story of Israel the experience of the Jewish people I believe it is universal Its the story of a people who over so many centuries in the wilderness never gave up on that basic human longing to return home Its the story of a people who suffered the boot of oppression and the shutting of the gas chambers door and yet never gave up on a belief in goodness And its the story of a man who was counted on and then often counted out again and again and who never lost hope Shimon Peres reminds us that the State of Israel like the United States of America was not built by cynics We exist because people before us refused to be constrained by the past or the difficulties of the present And Shimon Peres was never cynical It is that faith that optimism that belief — even when all the evidence is to the contrary — that tomorrow can be better that makes us not just honor Shimon Peres but love him The last of the founding generation is now gone Shimon accomplished enough things in his life for a thousand men But he understood that it is better to live to the very end of his time on Earth with a longing not for the past but for the dreams that have not yet come true — an Israel that is secure in a just and lasting peace with its neighbors And so now this work is in the hand of Israels next generation in the hands of Israel’s next generation and its friends Like Joshua we feel the weight of responsibility that Shimon seemed to wear so lightly But we draw strength from his example and the fact that he believed in us — even when we doubted ourselves Scripture tells us that before his death Moses said "I call upon heaven and earth to bear witness this day that I have set before you life and death blessing and curse; therefore choose life that you and your offspring may live" Uvacharta Bachayim Choose life For Shimon let us choose life as he always did Let us make his work our own May God bless his memory And may God bless this country and this world that he loved so dearlyJennifer Lawrence may be one of the biggest movie stars in the world but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t experienced her fair share of acting disappointment In a recent interview on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show leading up to the Friday release of Red Sparrow J-Law revealed that missing out on a part in the 2010 live-action remake of Alice in Wonderland was the most discouraging moment of her career “Emma Stone and I had this conversation once ’cause we used to always audition for the same thing” she told Stern according to Entertainment Tonight “She got one thing that I was dying for but the one thing that really killed methe only time I’ve ever been truly devastated by losing an audition…was Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland” However Lawrence was ready and willing to admit that Mia Wasikowskawho played Alicewas the right choice for the role “She was perfect and amazing and I couldn’t have had a British accent” she said Ultimately not falling down the rabbit hole seems to have worked out just fine for Jen Write to Megan McCluskey at meganmccluskey@timeinccomNearly a quarter of young people who identified as Republicans in 2015 now lean towards Democrats according to a new study Overall most people who identify with a certain party tend to maintain their political affiliation But according to a Pew Research study about party loyalty young Republicans are far more likely to switch parties than older Republicans or Democrats of any age The researchers found that only about half of surveyed Republicans under 30 stayed steadfastly loyal to their party from 2015 on: 21% left the party but returned by March 2017 and 23% defected to the Democrats That was significantly higher than the number of young Democrats who defected to the Republican side (9%) or the number of older Democrats who defected (14%) Overall both Republicans and Democrats have only about a 10% defection rate But between 2015 and 2017 the data suggests that Trump has been the main reason for defection in both directions Among Republicans who have defected from the party 57% said they strongly disapprove of Trump among Democrats who have defected from their party 32% strongly approve of Trump Overall people who are less politically engaged are more likely to switch sides and Democrats had a slight edge among those voters: 15% of less engaged Republicans became Democrats while 12% of less engaged Democrats became Republicans The research was conducted by the American Trends Panel at the Pew Research Center in a survey of 5154 adults over two years Write to Charlotte Alter at charlottealter@timecom she formed and often managed Continental’s profitable oil and gas marketing divisions,娱乐地图Auburn, killed in action in World War II although his body was never recoveredBrickner said the equipment used for the survey in 1963 may have been primitive by today’s standards but was highly accurate"You wouldn’t get that close even with professional grade equipment today" he said "You would be sufficiently close with a good grade GPS and that would take about 5 minutes"It took about 10 days to take the sightings and do the calculations back in 1963While the Kennedy administration and assassination have a prominent place in history Brickner doesn’t see his work establishing the location of the grave of importance"It was so long ago" he said "It was 1963 for God’s sake" Atiku,上海贵族宝贝Kipling, most members of Congress prefer to remind voters how they have held down federal spending. “Government.
