Sun Pharma proposes to acquire Israel-based Taro Pharmaceutical Industries
Sun Pharmaceutical Industries on Saturday said it has proposed to fully acquire Israel-based Taro Pharmaceutical Industries through a reverse triangular merger. The Mumbai-based drug major said it has issued a letter to the Taro board with a proposal containing a non-binding indication of interest to acquire all of the outstanding ordinary shares for a purchase price of USD 38 per ordinary share in cash. Sun Pharma currently owns a 78.48 per cent stake in Taro.

The purchase price represents a premium of 31.2 per cent over Taro's closing price on May 25, 2023, a 41.5 per cent premium over Taro's average closing price in the last 60 days and a compelling liquidity opportunity for Taro's shareholders, it added.

75 years of UN peacekeeping: successes, failures, and numerous difficulties
UNO: More than 2 million peacekeepers have been dispatched by the UN over the past 75 years to assist nations in resolving conflicts, with notable successes in Liberia and Cambodia and grave failures in the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. These include more violent environments, fake news campaigns, and a divided world that are impeding its ultimate goal: successfully restoring stable governments. It now faces new challenges in the dozen hotspots where UN peacekeeping has operations. On Thursday, the organisation commemorated the International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers and the 75th anniversary of UN peacekeeping with a solemn ceremony in memory of the more than 4,200 peacekeepers who have lost their lives since 1948, when the UN Security Council made the historic decision to dispatch military observers to the Middle East to monitor the implementation of Israeli-Arab armistice agreements. Ambassadors from the 39 home nations of the 103 peacekeepers who were added to the list in 2022 accepted medals on their behalf. Also Read: Neuralinkhas received FDA approval to study human brain implants At the ceremony, hundreds of uniformed military officers and diplomats were asked to stand for a moment of silence in memory of the victims. This request came from UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. And before a UN Security Council discussion on maintaining peace in Africa began, everyone in the room stood in silent remembrance of the fallen peacekeepers. After placing a wreath at the Peacekeepers Memorial, the secretary-general said that what started out in the Middle East as a bold experiment 75 years ago is now a flagship enterprise of our organisation. He claimed that peacekeepers serve as a beacon of hope and protection for civilians caught up in armed conflict. UN peacekeeping efforts have significantly expanded. There were 11,000 UN peacekeepers on the ground at the end of the Cold War in the early 1990s. There were 130,000 in 16 distant peacekeeping operations as of 2014. Currently, 12 conflict zones in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East are home to 87,000 men and women. Also Read: After 33 years in a California prison a man was found not guilty of an attempted murder According to UN peacekeeping chief Jean-Pierre Lacroix in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday, there have been two different kinds of successes. There is a long list of nations that have experienced a resurgence of stability thanks to UN peacekeeping, including Liberia, Sierra Leone, the Ivory Coast, Mozambique, Angola, and Cambodia. There are also nations where peacekeepers are not only monitoring cease-fires but also defending them, such as southern Lebanon and Cyprus. As examples of failures, he cited the UN peacekeepers' inability to stop the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, which resulted in the deaths of at least 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and Hutus, and the 1995 massacre at Srebrenica, which resulted in the deaths of at least 8,000 mostly Muslim men and boys and was the only acknowledged genocide in Europe since the Holocaust of World War II. Numerous claims that peacekeepers tasked with protecting civilians sexually assaulted women and children, including in the Central African Republic and Congo, have damaged the UN's reputation. Another well-known error was the outbreak of cholera in Haiti in 2010, which was caused by UN peacekeepers accidentally introducing the bacteria into the nation's largest river through sewage runoff from their base. The UN director for the International Crisis Group, Richard Gowan, nonetheless noted that UN peacekeeping has a surprisingly decent track record. He asserted that, despite the understandable attention paid to the disasters in Rwanda and Srebrenica, the UN has done a good job of tamping down crises, protecting civilians, and rebuilding broken states in cases from the Suez crisis in the 1950s to Liberia in the 2000s. Looking ahead, Lacroix of the UN stated that the main obstacle to peacekeeping is the divided nature of the international community, particularly within the UN Security Council, which must approve its missions. We are unable to deploy, support a political process that advances, and then gradually wind down when that political process is finished, which is what he refers to as the ultimate goal of peacekeeping, he said. We are unable to do that because the pace of the peace processes is too slow. Consequently, we basically have to be satisfied with what I call the intermediate goal of peacekeeping maintaining cease-fires, protecting civilians, we protect hundreds of thousands of them... and, of course, doing everything in our power to assist political initiatives wherever we can, said the undersecretary-general for peace operations. Lacroix mentioned additional difficulties that peacekeepers face, including an environment that is more violent and dangerous and more sophisticated attacks. Disinformation and fake news is a massive threat to the population and the peacekeepers. Old and new sources of conflict, such as transnational crime, drug trafficking, the proliferation of weapons, illegal exploitation of natural resources, and the impact of climate change escalating rivalry between herders and farmers, are all exerting absolutely massive influence. He asserted that the UN must do a better job of handling every problem. Additionally, it must carry out its performance-related initiatives, combat fake news, enhance safety and security, and recruit more women to serve as peacekeepers in order to continue increasing the effectiveness of peacekeeping. Also Read: A US Navy investigation reveals serious issues with SEAL training According to Gowan of The Crisis Group, it is pretty obvious that the UN is trapped in places like Mali and the Congo where there aren't enough peacekeepers to stop violent cycles from repeating. He claimed that some African governments, like the one in Mali, are using private security companies like Russia's Wagner Group to combat insurgents. Gowan said, I think we should be cautious about completely ending UN operations. In situations like Afghanistan, we have discovered the hard way that even powerful Western forces cannot impose peace. Nobody is significantly more effective at fostering stability in unstable states than the UN, despite its less than ideal track record.
UN 75 Years of Peacekeeping: Successes, failures and challenges ahead in a divided world
Secretary-General Antonio Guterres stressed the need for a new generation of regional operations to end conflicts and combat terrorism that is mandated and financed by the UNs 193 member nations. UNITED NATIONS: On the 75th anniversary of UNpeacekeeping, the United Nations chief said onThursday that peacekeepers are increasingly working in places where there is no peace and praised the more than 4,200 who have given their lives to the cause of peace since the UNauthorized its first military deployment in 1948. It was a day to look back at the successes of peacekeeping from Liberia to Cambodia and its major failures in former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, but also to the challenges ahead, including dealing with more violent environments, fake news campaigns, and a divided world that is preventing peacekeepings ultimate goal: successfully restoring stable governments. And it was a day to honour the more than 2 million peacekeepers from 125 countries who have served in 71 operations since the UNSecurity Council sent those first military observers to supervise the implementation of Israeli-Arab armistice agreements following their war. At a ceremony honouring the fallen peacekeepers, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres asked the hundreds of uniformed military officers and diplomats to stand for a moment of silence in their memory and then presented medals for the 103 peacekeepers killed in 2022 to ambassadors from their 39 home countries. And at the start of a UNSecurity Council meeting on peace in Africa shortly after, all those in the chamber stood in tribute to peacekeepers who paid the ultimate price. The secretary-general told the ceremony, after laying a wreath at the Peacekeepers Memorial on the lawn at UNheadquarters, that what began 75 years ago as a bold experiment in the Mideast is now a flagship enterprise of our organization. For civilians caught in the conflict, he said, peacekeepers are a beacon of hope and protection. But peacekeepers trying to help countries move away from conflict are now on the front lines in some of the worlds most dangerous places, he said. Guterres stressed the need for a new generation of regional operations to end conflicts and combat terrorism that is mandated and financed by the UNs 193 member nations. That has been a major goal of the African Union for years, and the continents nations are urging quick action to make this happen. At the Security Council meeting, there was widespread support for Guterres view but differences on how the UNshould do this. UNpolitical chief Rosemary DiCarlo told the council that putting AU peace operations on solid footing is increasingly pressing and the case for adequate financing is beyond solid. The UN, therefore,hopes the council will provide financing from U.N. member states for AU-led peace operations, she said. Adeoye Bankole, the African Union commissioner for political affairs, peace and security, welcomed the very constructive and positive thrust of the secretary-generals comments. We cannot continue to use traditional peacekeeping methods in the face of the complex nature and scope of conflicts that traverse our beloved continent, particularly violent extremism, the ideology of hate, terrorism, rebellion and insurgency, he said. UNpeacekeeping operations have grown dramatically. At the end of the Cold War in the early 1990s, there were 11,000 U.N. peacekeepers. By 2014, there were 130,000 in 16 far-flung peacekeeping operations. Today, 87,000 men and women serve in 12 conflict areas in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. There have been two kinds of successes, UNpeacekeeping chief Jean-Pierre Lacroix said in an interview Wednesday with The Associated Press. Those are the long list of countries that have returned to a reasonable degree of stability with the support of UNpeacekeeping, including Liberia, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Mozambique, Angola and Cambodia, and the countries where peacekeepers are not only monitoring but preserving cease-fires like in southern Lebanon and Cyprus. As for failures, he pointed to the failure of UNpeacekeepers to prevent the 1994 Rwanda genocide, which killed at least 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and Hutus, and the 1995 massacre of at least 8,000 mostly Muslim men and boys at Srebrenica during the war in Bosnia, Europes only acknowledged genocide since the Holocaust during World War II. The UNs reputation has also been tarnished by numerous allegations that peacekeepers charged with protecting civilians sexually abused women and children, including in Central African Republic and Congo. Another high-profile blunder was the cholera epidemic in Haiti that began in 2010 after U.N. peacekeepers introduced the bacteria into the countrys largest river by sewage runoff from their base. Despite that, Richard Gowan, the International Crisis Groups UNdirector, said UNpeacekeeping has a surprisingly decent track record and has done a good job of tamping down crises, protecting civilians and rebuilding broken states in cases from the Suez crisis in the 1950s to Liberia in the 2000s. Soldiers line up at the United Nations Peace Operations Training Center (CECOPAZ) before the arrival of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon in Asuncion, Paraguay, on Feb. 26, 2015. (File Photo | AP) Looking ahead, the UN's Lacroix said the major challenge peacekeeping is facing is the divided international community and especially divisions in the UNSecurity Council, which must approve its missions. The result of that is that were not able to achieve what I call the ultimate goal of peacekeeping to be deployed, support a political process that moves forward, and then gradually roll down when that political process is completed, he said. Lacroix said peace processes aren't moving or aren't going fast enough so the UNhas to be content with what I call the intermediate goal of peacekeeping preserving cease-fires, protecting civilians, we protect hundreds of thousands of them and doing our best, of course, to support political efforts wherever we can. Lacroix pointed to other challenges peacekeepers are facing: more violent and dangerous operating environments and more sophisticated attacks and fake news and disinformation which are a massive threat to the population and the peacekeepers. And old and new drivers of conflict including transnational criminal activities, trafficking, drugs, weapons, the illegal exploitation of natural resources, and the impact of climate change exacerbating competition between herders and farmers are also having an absolutely massive influence. The Crisis Groups Gowan told AP its pretty clear that the UNis trapped in some countries like Mali and Congo where there arent enough peacekeepers to halt recurring cycles of violence. Some African governments, including Mali's, are turning to private security providers like Russias Wagner Group to fight insurgents, he said. I think we should be wary of dumping U.N. operations outright, Gowan said. We have learned the hard way in cases like Afghanistan that even heavily armed Western forces cannot impose peace. The UNs track record may not be perfect, but nobody else is much better at building stability in turbulent states.

Iran unveils latest version of ballistic missile amidtensions over nuclear program
Iran introduced a new ballistic missile named Kheibar (Khorramshahr-4), with a range of 2,000 kilometres and a capacity to carry warheads weighing over a tonne. TEHRAN: Iran unveiled on Thursday what it dubbed the latest iteration of its liquid-fuelled Khorramshahr ballistic missile amid wider tensions with the West over its nuclear program. Authorities showed off the Khorramshahr-4 to journalists at an event in Tehran, with the missile on a truck-mounted launcher. Defence Minister Gen. Mohammad Reza Ashtiani said the missile could be prepared for launch in a short period. Iranian officials described the missile as having a 2,000-kilometre (1,240-mile) range with and a capacity to carry warheads weighing over a tonne. The Kheibar missile - the latest version of the Khorramshahr which is Iran's longest-range missile to date -- was unveiled alongside a replica of the Al-Aqsa mosque in east Jerusalem, in a live broadcast on state television. The Khorramshahr-4 is named after an Iranian city that was the scene of heavy fighting during the Iran-Iraq War in the 1980s. The missile also is called Kheibar, after a Jewish fortress conquered by the Muslims in the 7th century, what is now in Saudi Arabia. #Iran test fires the Khorramshahr 4 medium-range ballistic missile. The precision-guided missile uses hypergolic fuel & has a range of 2000 km with a 1,500 kg warhead, a 4 meter warhead capable of carrying 1 tone of explosive, says the IRGC affiliated Tasnim News Agency. pic.twitter.com/VDhA5mH8mO Habib Abdolhossein (@HAbdolhossein) May 25, 2023 Regional tensions likely played a role in Iran's missile display on Thursday. Iran views Israel as its archenemy and arming anti-Israeli militant groups in the Palestinian territories and surrounding countries.The unveiling comes amid heightened tensions in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and just over 10 days into a fragile Gaza ceasefire that ended five days of cross-border conflict between Israel and the Iran-backed Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad. Tensions between the two nations are high, particularly as Iran enriches uranium closer than ever to weapons-grade levels. It remains unclear, however, why the missile has been called Khorramshahr-4 as only two other variants of the missile are publicly known. It is modeled after North Korea's Musudan ballistic missile.

Palestinian survivors and historians have long claimed that men living in Tantura, a fishing village of approximately 1,500 people near Haifa, were executed after surrendering to the Alexandroni Brigade and their bodies dumped in a mass grave believed to be located under an area that is now a car park for Dor Beach.

Netanyahu Budget May Risk His Economic Legacy in Israel

Turkish peppers, tomatoes and eggs: how to cook the perfect menemen recipe | Felicity Cloake's How to cook the perfect
There are myriad ways to make Turkeys traditional tomatoey scrambled eggs our in-house perfectionist distils them all into one perfect brunch recipe Being good Guardian readers, Im sure youre all familiar with shakshuka the north African egg dish that first conquered Israel, and then brunch menus around the world (with a little help from one Yotam Ottolenghi ), but you may be less familiar with the (arguably superior) Turkish version, menemen , for which the eggs tend to be stirred into the sauce, rather than simply cooked on top. Quick, simple and tasty, Ghillie Basan writes in her Classic Turkish Cooking, this chunky, tomato-rich stew is something youll find in bus stations, train stations and ports anywhere there is passing trade. According to Yasmin Khan, it derives its name from the Greek menemnos , meaning to flood or overflow, which, as she observes, makes sense when you see a pan of menemen with its eggs flooded in juicy, sweet tomatoes, just waiting for you to scrape up with some freshly baked pide ekmek . But, as Somer Sivrioglu explains, though its a famous breakfast dish in Turkey, no one can agree on the perfect version. It varies from village to village and from house to house even in the Aegean town called Menemen, which is not necessarily its place of origin. With that in mind, take todays recipe as my humble contribution to the debate. Continue reading...
Israel's Netanyahu and allies pass new budget with sweeping grants for pro settlers, ultra-Orthodox
While the budget could buy Netanyahu some quiet inside his coalition of ultra-Orthodox and ultranationalist parties, it also was expected to deepen the divisions in Israel. JERUSALEM: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government on Wednesday passed a new two-year budget, a step that could bring some stability to his coalition and clear the way for it to press ahead with its religious, pro-settlement agenda. While the budget could buy Netanyahu some quiet inside his coalition of ultra-Orthodox and ultranationalist parties, Israel's most hard-line ever, it also was expected to deepen the divisions in Israel. Critics have accused Netanyahu of increasing spending on his ultra-Orthodox allies for religious programs that have little benefit for the economy and broader society. The vote dragged on overnight, with the budgets for 2023 and 2024 finally passing with a 64-56 vote in parliament after daybreak. It followed weeks of tense negotiations between Netanyahu and the parties in his coalition. We have received the tools, we're rolling up our sleeves and going to work, Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich said after the vote. The new budget has been criticized for allocating nearly $4 billion in discretionary funds, much of it for ultra-Orthodox and pro-settler parties. That will include increases in controversial stipends for ultra-Orthodox men to study full-time in religious seminaries instead of working or serving in the military, which is compulsory for most secular males. It also includes more money for ultra-Orthodox schools, which are widely criticized for not teaching students skills like math and English needed in the modern workplace. The funds also include tens of millions of dollars for hard-line pro-settler parties to promote pet projects through the ministries they control. ALSO READ: Israeli PM Netanyahu freezes judicial overhaul; urges protesters 'to behave responsibly' Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich, a settler leader, has said he hopes to double the population of West Bank settlers in the coming years. The government's composition and agenda have deeply divided the country. On Tuesday, several thousand flag-waving Israelis protested outside the parliament building against the budget. That smaller demonstration over the budget followed months of sustained mass protest against a series of proposals by Netanyahu's government to overhaul the country's judicial system while he is on trial for corruption. Proponents say the measures are needed to rein in an overzealous Supreme Court, but critics say the plan would destroy the country's system of checks and balances and compromise Israeli democracy. That plan has raised concerns overseas but is now on hold. Now that the budget has passed, however, Netanyahu may face renewed pressure from his allies to revive it.
Kochi witnesses first Jewish wedding in 15 years, rabbi from Israel officiates
News This is also the fifth Jewish wedding to be held in Kochi in the last 70 years. Screengrab/Asianet News Keralas Kochi witnessed its first Jewish wedding in 15 years on Sunday, May 22. Bride Rachel Binoy Malakhi and groom Richard Zachary Rowe said their vows at a lakeside resort in Kumbalam, in a ceremony solemnised by Rabbi Aryeal Tsion, an Israeli who flew down for the occasion. Rachel, a native of Thiruvananthapuram, is a genome scientist working in the USA. She is the daughter of former Superintendent of Police Binoy Malakhi and clinical psychologist Manjusha Miriam Emmanuel. On May 22, she married Richard, an aerospace engineer working at NASA. He is an American Jew born to Sandy Rowe and Richard Rowe. A Jewish wedding requires a congregation of at least ten adult Jewish males. This includes the groom and his two witnesses. The ceremony was held under a traditional canopy that is a symbol of home, called Huppah. At Rachel and Richards wedding, they said their vows and exchanged rings. The function was attended by close family members including Anna Riya Malakhi, the brides sister and 20 members of the grooms family. The wedding could not be held at the famous Paradesi synagogue (a synagogue is a Jewish house of worship) in Kochi Mattancherry, which is a sought after tourist location now, owing to the antiquity of the building. The heritage building could not house the 300 guests, nor hold the rituals conducted in connection with the wedding. Kochi has a small Jewish population of 25 persons.

The last Jewish wedding to take place in the state was in 2008 after a gap of nearly two decades at the Thekkumbhagam synagogue, Mattancherry. KOCHI: The Jewish community of Kerala on Sunday celebrated a traditional wedding after a gap of 15 years capturing the essence of Jewish customs. The ceremony, which was held at a private resort here was attended by family, friends, and community members and officiated by a rabbi who reached the state from Israel. Rachel Malakhai, a Data Scientist in the US and the daughter of the former crime branch SP Benoy Malakhai got married to Richard Zachary Rowe, an American citizen, and a NASA engineer. Rabbi, Ariel Tyson, from Israel officiated the wedding. The wedding ceremony took place under a canopy (that symbolised the home) called Huppah. Family sources said this was the first wedding in Kerala that happened outside a synagogue. The event assumed significance due to the rare nature of such weddings in Kerala. The last Jewish wedding to take place in the state was in 2008 after a gap of nearly two decades at the Thekkumbhagam synagogue, Mattancherry. As the number of participants were limited inside the synagogue, the families decided to conduct the ceremony at the private resort in order to allow other family members also to witness the rituals. According to some historians, the first Jews to reach Kerala were traders and they came during the time of King Solomon, that is, more than 2,000 years back. Only a few families are right now left in the state.

My idea of fun isnt partying till youre blue in the face, shopping till Im dropping or working till I explode! Restraint is the key. BENGALURU: My idea of fun isnt partying till youre blue in the face, shopping till Im dropping or working till I explode! Restraint is the key. Grand openings with grotesquely expensive invitations (some with bottles of fine wine/liquor) stupefy me! Why would total strangers invite you to their massive bars/clubs/restaurants and promise all and sundry a good time? Their public relations partners go into overdrive, sussing out numbers and blitzing you with messages urging you to come and helpfully supply you with hashtags! Totally taking for granted that you (a total stranger) will post your shenanigans on social media and tag seamless-Seema or hottie-pototie or whatever hashtag the team gives you! I understand that doing-stuff or scratching a friends back is kosher. But the bevy of strangers who assume that you will give them publicity is in my books: making someone else do the job that you are hired to do. Bigger and bigger sharks have entered this arena and they in turn, are employed because of their social contacts! Many young uns get wined and dined (gratis) quite expeditiously nowadays! Call me a dinosaur (I have been referred to as T-Rex by some uncharitable people!), but I like being invited the old -fashioned way. Friends and acquaintances send you an invitation to save the date, followed by an invitation and/or a phone call. Pleasantries are exchanged (no one is too busy for that), and commitments are given. One knows one will bump into friends and the ambiance will reek of bonhomie, good food, ambrosia and conversations. That is where we enjoy taking photographs of having a great time, posting about a fabulous event that has painstaking been put together, join in the raucous celebration of an entrepreneurial venture of yet another known person, be it a new restaurant/pub/bar, and then blitz it to the world. There has to be a cut-off point. Either one knows or has a relationship with the person or the said stranger does their own blitzkrieg! Sounds harsh? You betcha! I received one such polite invitation from Arjun Pandalai to an Art-Rendezvous, Conversations and more of the famed artist-king, Raja Ravi Varma. His works were showcased under the auspices of the RRV Heritage Foundation to honour his 175th birth anniversary. The elegant ballroom of the Taj West End was filled to capacity with adoring fans and artists alike. There was an informative tete-a-tete by an expert panel comprising the Rajas great grand-niece and Gitanjali Maini, whose art foundation is the most prolific in keeping Raja Ravi Varmas art in focus and alive. In keeping with the Rajas homeland, the most delicious food from Gods own country was served. Twas a truly beautiful evening. I formed an almost instant, easy connection with the Israel Consulate-General, Tammy Ben-Haim. Perhaps because I had a close friendship with her predecessor, my first meeting with Tammy was without filters. She and her deputy Limor, are both steel magnolias yet, easy-going, friendly and non-fussy. Their 75th Independence Day celebration was a blast! Again consuls from different parts of the world mingled and mixed. Friends who hadnt connected for ages were there. A warm and friendly ambiance with great table and pours only contributed to a feeling of bonhomie on a gentle drizzle-soaked night. Can anyone ask for more? (The writers views are her own)
