Hong Kong has grown so dramatically as a financial centre over the past 10 years that it seems odd for it to be worrying about its future. Especially so, one would have thought, after its triumph last year when it beat both New York and London to host the largest volume of initial public offerings in the world.

There is an obvious division within Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement on the Legco by-elections and "referendum" issue. This division offers a significant opportunity for Beijing's united front strategy to split the pro-democracy movement and achieve its goal of divide and rule, hence the emergence of the labels of "moderate" democrats and "radical" democrats.
The Hong Kong government announced earlier this month that it had nominated a leading jurist, Justice Geoffrey Ma, to be the next head of the judiciary, succeeding Chief Justice Andrew Li, who served in that post since the former British colony became a special administrative region of China in 1997.

If Gordon Brown expected props back home for being the first European leader to enjoy President Obama's hospitality at the White House and only the fifth British Prime Minister ever to address Congress, he might have reconsidered the fourth paragraph of that speech. Like a nervous entertainer at a particularly rowdy children's party, Brown pulled his rabbit out of the hat almost at the start of his act. Her Majesty — Britain's Queen — had bestowed an honorary knighthood on "Sir Edward Kennedy," he announced.

BRUSSELS -- According to Finkelstein, Israel, a state built on the ashes of the Holocaust, is now committing a holocaust against Palestinians in Gaza. In a telephone interview with Today’s Zaman, Finkelstein said Israel was a “terrorist state” created by the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in 1948. Praising Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the Turkish people for their courage in supporting Palestinians, Finkelstein referred to Israel as a “satanic” and “lunatic” state. Finkelstein’s parents survived the Nazi camps in World War II and then immigrated to the U.S.
