Sun, 29 Mar 2015 12:29:24 -0400

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu renews his denunciations of an Iranian nuclear dealIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday denounced as "dangerous" a nuclear accord that world powers are negotiating with Iran, saying it goes beyond what his government had feared. "The dangerous accord which is being negotiated in Lausanne (Switzerland) confirms our concerns and even worse," Netanyahu said in remarks at a meeting of his cabinet broadcast on public radio. The premier warned that Iran could be in a position to "conquer" the Middle East through what he called the "axis" of control it has over the capitals of Iraq, Lebanon and Syria. Netanyahu angered the White House when he addressed a joint session of the Congress to warn against a nuclear deal with Iran in the lead-up to Israel's March 17 general election.




Indiana governor defends religious freedom law
Sun, 29 Mar 2015 13:30:19 -0400

Demonstrators gather to protest a controversial religious freedom bill in IndianapolisBy Alina Selyukh WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Indiana Governor Mike Pence on Sunday defended a new state law that opponents worry may support discrimination against gay people, saying he had no plans to add extra protections but would consider new suggestions from state legislators. Pence, speaking on ABC's "This Week," sought to counter criticism from protesters who have spilled onto the streets of Indianapolis and others, including some corporations, after signing the Religious Freedom Restoration Act on Thursday. "It does not apply to disputes between individuals, unless government action is involved." Supporters say the law, which was passed overwhelmingly by the Republican-led state legislature, will keep the government from forcing business owners to act against their strongly held religious beliefs. The Indiana law has drawn criticisms from companies such as Angie's List Inc and Wal-Mart Stores Inc , tech industry chiefs including openly gay Apple Inc CEO Tim Cook, and the White House.
