And in that time, the Huffington Post managed to snatch descriptions for the first ten episodes of the upcoming season, which you can check out down below.
Alongside this rather untimely leak was the official release of a new, Valentine’s-themed trailer for House of Cards latest stint, which sees Frank and Claire’s relationship shaken and stirred as they prepare for an official photo in the Oval office. Clearly repelled by her significant other, it’s Robin Wright’s character who exhibits the most emotion in this instance,
The movement to boycott Israeli goods linked to settlements has been boosted by "Scarlett syndrome", say activists, after the high-profile controversy over the film star Scarlett Johansson's endorsement of SodaStream.
Pro-boycott campaigners believe they will benefit from the celebrity furore, even though Johansson – faced with the incompatibility of sponsorship of SodaStream, which has a factory in an illegal settlement in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, and her role as a goodwill ambassador for Oxfam – broke links with the charity.
The row follows mounting pressure, especially from Europe, where NGOs, trade unions, churches and others are forcing their governments to take action.
The number of European corporations who have severed or reviewed links with Israeli companies which operate in settlements is accelerating; the European Union is taking an increasingly tougher line; and the boycott movement is
The Us hit back at Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday after the Israeli prime minister warned that calls for boycotts of Israel to pressure it over settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories are "immoral and unjustified" and would not achieve their goal.
In a public spat that reflected tensions over slow-moving Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, the state department rebuked Netanyahu for apparently misrepresenting the words of the Us secretary of state, John Kerry. Another senior rightwing minister accused Kerry of serving as a "mouthpiece" for antisemitic views.
Speaking on the record at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting, the Israeli prime minister said that the growing international boycott movement would only "push peace further away" by encouraging Palestinian intransigence.
"No pressure will force me to give up the vital interests of the state of Israel,
Mr. Brainwash: Mr. Brainwash in Toronto (2011). Made famous by the film Exit through the Gift Shop as legendary street-artist Banksy's alter ego, Thierry Guetta , aka Mr. Brainwash, has continued to produce provocative and playful Pop art. His work hungrily appropriates contemporary visual-art masters and cheekily tweaks the nose of gallery-based convention. He will be engaged in multiple projects during the Festival, including a significant, multiple-piece exhibition at Gallery One. His presence will also be felt outside Roy Thomson Hall, with his spray cans towering over the red carpet, providing emergency assistance for evenings requiring additional glamour and pomp.
In Washington, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu got standing ovations during this hour-long address to both houses of Congress. At the Tarwee'a café in Ramallah, he mostly got ignored. Palestinians in their twenties sucked on Hubblie Bubblies and ate the shawarma dajaj – a chicken dish, heavy on the cumin - that is the house specialty. With the volume turned down low on two flat screen TVs-both tuned to CNN-Netanyahu drew an occasional glance. No boos, not even sneers, just studied indifference. "This man never says anything new," said Mahmoud Ghanim, adding a pinch of sweet-smelling tobacco to his water pipe.
Not entirely true. In what Israeli analysts had billed as the speech of his 30-year political career, Netanyahu revealed a bit more of his vision for peace between Israelis and Palestinians,
Who gained and who lost from President Barack Obama's remarks about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict Thursday? In the standard practice of Middle East scorekeeping, you can usually tell by the reaction of each side. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticized the speech-suggesting he was on the losing end-while Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas praised it. But the arithmetic this time is more complicated.

Obama sided with Israel on a number of key issues. He called for new talks between the sides without demanding a settlement freeze from the Jewish state-a departure from his policy of two years.
