I have recently found a fairly slender isopod attached to the eggs/embryos of an Apseudopsis mediterraneus (Tanaidacea) sampled off the coast of Israel. The isopod itself appeared to be protected by a thin mucous sac.
Any ideas where I should start my search for a possible identification?
Many thanks.

Well, this is an interesting subject. I know that Epicaridea are underneath the carapax of many decapods, but even in the most recent paper by Williams & Boyko (2012: attached) there is no mentioning of tanaidaceans. I have checked some papers on Bopyridae, but no tanaidacean in it. May you should ask Christopher Boyko.

We are investigating lymphoma in the ME using our Iraqi Kurdistan database, individual published papers from the region, and national cancer registries from Jordan, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. The WHO maintains an excellent world registry (IICC-3) for childhood cancers, including specific types of NHL. But I am having difficulty finding information on adult BL. Adult BL appears to be very uncommon in the Middle East, but it may be increasing as it currently accounts for about 20% of our BL. I cannot find any information on other countries of the ME and NA. I am particularly interested in Israel. Rates of childhood BL in Israel are high, but I can find no information on the rates of adult BL that should also be high if the epidemiology is simar to the US and Europe. I can also find no information on the seroprevalence of EBV except for one paper on male university students that would indicate a biphasic pattern of infection in early childhood and adolescence similar to that reported in Europe and N America. Can anyone point me to any resources to fill in the gaps?

14/10/2021: We are witnessing an epochal shift that has started from the Port Authority of Trieste and it's reverberating through all European ports. But, as you may imagine, Trieste Port, is not a simple gateway. It's not. It's the main access from all over the world and the majority of trades from China to Central Europe. Germany is starting to witness a total disruption of its supply chain logistics because of the fact that the silk road model, extraordinarily signed by its President D'Agostino and the Chinese President, has addressed important funds for the establishment of a Trans-European Transport Network. On the other side of the Upper Adriatic zone, Koper (Capodistria) is trying these days to compete with Trieste, by putting into practice only a part of its national infrastructure 2TDK, the biggest EVER conceptualized in Slovenia!
Now the cargos are trying to deliver in Koper. But at which environmental cost for a greenpass? Despite their proximity and same voltage line, Trieste and Koper's policies did not join! Result: the goods will pretend longer routes, bottlenecks at a slower speed (in this article you see all the deficiencies of the railways tracks, as a result of dozens and dozens of years on a diplomatic level, after the Yugoslavia abolishment and diaspora.

I came across reference to the above recently in the world history of a Dutch writer and I was aghast as archaeological research has been going on in present day Israel for over a hundred years and no evidence for this famed polity has emerged, except for occasional finds in the Shephelah. Assessments of Jerusalem continue to insist it was little more than a village and many of the urban sites claimed in Judaic writings as belonging to this supposed early Hebrew empire seem culturally Philistine or Canaanite.
I have elsewhere theorised that the stories were fabricated after the defeat of Judea, never more than a secondary power in the region, by Assyria and Babylon, the crushing and annihilation of the Kingdom of Israel based in Samaria, in order to assuage such overwhelming defeats.

I recently became aware of a published proposal to reintroduce African cheetahs in India by US scientists.
Apart from scientific considerations - I have much to disagree on this proposal - my question is: should it be proposed if the last Asiatic cheetahs lived in Israel or Jordan rather than in Iran, as it is the case? I believe that global organizations should try to support local and national conservation initiatives, not totally disvalue work in Iran that is really critical for the conservation of Asiatic cheetah.

Rich natural gas deposits have been found in the Eastern Mediterranean, but there are several problems with their sharing. a Turkey excluded on one side; on the other hand, there is a block with Greece, Cyprus, Israel and Egypt. What could be the future of this sharing war? Is Libya a key country of this problem? Where is the European Union in this sharing problem? What is the approach of the USA, Russia and China to this issue? What do you think is the most effective and fair solution?
Relevant answer
Answer
Certainly a puzzle how to divide the deposits of gas. Basically, it should be shared with all surrounding countries. However, we have a precedent: Turkey has broken ranks with the existing legislation by drilling in somebody's else licence without permission. Then, it becomes a problem. Who wants to share resources with Turkey? Certainly no one under its present government. Not fair to the people of Turkey, but they need to change the leadership to be fair to its neighbours.

The fact that the US martyred Kasım Süleymani, one of Iran's most important commanders, points out that the balance and policies will change in the Middle East. Can Iran's attitude to terrorist organizations, which threaten Iran primarily, change? Can it damage the US policies in the Middle East? What kind of new policies can it pursue in Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan, where it is effective? What kind of new and more visible actions could he take in his interest in Israel? Would this powerful attack on Iran make his policies more acceptable in the Islamic world? Can there be a positive change in the perspectives of the states on the axis of Islam? Has Iran's style of administration been reinforced as a result of this attack?

Answer
1 - I agree with that "Iran will not launch an operation".
2- But, Iran will use Shiites in Yemen, Lebanon and Iraq.
3 - I agree with that "their policies will not change their position and acceptability among Islamic countries". Because the ennemosity against Sunnies is greater than its ennemosity against USA and EU". So its wars will turn to that side, if there is no problem with the (american guardian).

When the Non-Proliferation regimes were created, the basic intent was it should remain confined in the hands of select few ie P-5 or N-5. However, there were two self declared N- weapons states ie India and Pakistan and Israel duly backed by USA.

The NPT is the document which has postulated the elite club. When it appeared it just fixed the status of superpowers which, in real politics, were able to make the final decision if this or that country got those technologies or not.
When we speak about Israel pay your attention that the first reactor was French-made, and heavy-water was from Norway. As for American suggestions of 1950s ("peaceful atom") all of them were refused.
The problem of Iranian programm for international players is in Iranian legal system. I don't mean that participation in any international treaties will always guarantee anything unconditionally. International players often ignore national pecularities of such cultures (in a broader sense) as Iranian and roots of non-solved problem are here.
There was one case in the non-proliferation regime when the state refused from its program by itself. I mean the Algerian project. Nuclear projects are very expensive and that was one of the reasons for stopping the program. I think that the politics of sanctions is based on the idea that lack of money can stop the project. From my point of view, the Algerian case was just the case, not the system. Nobody was able to prove that it was the result of unprecident external pressure because of which Algerian government made the decision to stop its program.
Funally, I don't think that anything new has happened in the non-proliferation regime because of North Korea. Its project is just the part of global clash in politics.

For Palestinians, they accept in two state solution on 1967 borders, it means Palestinian non- militarized state in West Bank and Gaza.

During the early Iron age there were two significant gods, Ba'al and El, in Canaan. The latter was for centuries the chief Canaanite (West Semitic) god. Towards the end of the Bronze Age El began losing acolytes to Ba'al except in South Palestine. Many feel that El was Israel's primary god but that as the Ba'al cult began to gain ground in Israel (the Palestinian highlands), representing urban-life, agriculture and kingship, the early Israelites transformed El's character. The story of Moses and the Exodus is a much later epic detailing that conversion from a benevolent into a martial god.

The Canaanites were a sophisticated, learned people with their own literature and art (some, but not much). They, like other ancient peoples, had a view of world based on choas and the necessity for balance. This involved, as in Egypt, how well you treated others.
Israel, probably originally employed to designate the hilly country above the Palestine plains not a people, appears, by referencing Biblical texts, to have been immensely jealous of their wealthy, urban neighbours.
Relevant answer
Answer
Not aware of religious belief:
Ian, there is considerable knowledge of Canaanite religion, more so since the discovery of the Ugarit texts (Ulf Oldenburg: The Conflict Between El and Ba'al in Canaanite Religion. Leiden. E.J.Brill. 1969). There are more recent examples too.
The discovered texts talk of a pantheon ruled by El, with Ba'al, the son of Hadad/Dagan an Amorite intruder. As El is also called 'Ancient of Days' and resembles the god since portrayed as YHWH, and as Samuel (Sha'al), Saul, Elijah, Yishmael, Elishah, Ezekiel, Israel both begin or end with the appellative (with countless others, plus continuous references to el in the Bible) I, in Ancient Fiction, available here, and many, many others regard him as the original Hebrew deity along with his wife/consort Astarte or Asherah. As I've explained elsewhere, Israel was a personal name in Canaan and probably referenced the land not the people, and also YHWH can be seen as a personal name, mainly in Syria.

      My own understanding of the media coverage of the western press is that they are guided by the principles of press freedom, good journalism, professional ethics and code of conduct, and social responsibility; which are also enshrined in the western values of democracy, constitutionalism, and human rights.
    In addition, the western media reporting of Middle East issues are also guided by their journalistic considerations of news values or news worthiness of events in the Middle East.
      Therefore the Western media such as BBC, CNN, VOA, and RFI among others operate 24-hour round the clock coverage of Middle East news. They have their ME offices or bureaus which are run by well trained editors, journalists (correspondents/reporters), and technical staff who sustain their daily operations there. Many of these media practitioners are specialists because news reporting involves many different aspects or disciplines.
      For example: social, economic, environmental, science and technology, political, and legal issues. The journalists who cover Middle East are drawn from western and non-western countries. Many Middle East offices or journalists are staffed with Middle East citizens who work for western media outlets like the CNN, BBC, VOA, and RFI as stated above. Cultural differences have been minimized.
      There have been contentions from the Middle East regarding their reporting (misreporting) of the Middle East affairs. These multiple allegations include: bias coverage, misreporting, falsification of news, ignoring Arab views, faking pictures or images, racialism, lack of verification, using wrong sources, lack of respect for Arab culture, and cultural illiteracy of the Arab culture. Others include: intrusions, misconceptions of ME history, or its disrespect.
     Part of the western arguments has been attributed to democratic deficiency in the ME states, where freedom of the press is not respected. Therefore, access to information becomes a big barrier to the western press. It also helps to enhance evidence or facts of news stories.
     Without freedom of access information, it is not possible to verify sources of information. Verification is very crucial in journalism and any obstacle to it does not help to advance the principle of objectivity, fairness, accuracy, and truth as required of a balanced news story.
      The western press have continued to present a deluge of lively and often dramatic news stories from the Middle East. The Middle East coverage has been dominated by wars or conflicts, politics, and economics. All other Middle East issues are covered by the western press. These include social issues such as: culture, family, literature, education, tourism, games and sports, food, water, transport and travels, information and communication.
      There are also legal and terminology issues which the western media and the ME have often locked horns over. For example, in Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the words occupied or freedom fighters (as used by Palestinians) and disputed or terrorists (as used by western media) territories. In the past (and even now), the western media were prevented from reporting from Arab states. This is still happening and some cases they have restricted access.
     On the other hand, Israel, which operates the western model of democracy have been quite accessible to western media. This would always be a natural advantage to Israel to put its case to the world. This situation has changed with more Arab states embracing the letter and spirit of democracy. Middle East has continued to be the hub of a variety of news stories.
     The western press have also been helped by the advent of the new media especially the social media in the Middle Eastern countries. The increasing accesses to the internet by the citizens of the Arab or Middle Eastern states have further boosted the region’s news coverage.
     In conclusion, the practice good journalism and unfettered press freedom which the western media promote, depends on the enabling political environment where media or pluralism thrive in a democratic system. The effect of globalization and more exposure to international education have worked in favour of better coverage of the Middle  East by the western media.

I am doing some work on the migrations between Israel and the territories it captured in 1967. This includes several hundred thousand Jewish Israelis ("the settlers"). It also includes over a hundred thousand Palestinians (mostly Muslims) who migrated from those areas to live permanently within pre-1967 Israel. I am having trouble locating an estimate of the number of Israeli Palestinians (holders of Israeli citizenship) who have moved from pre-1967 Israel into the Territories.

Having followed the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for many years, I was intrigued by this question and by the fact that it is so difficult to find an answer. I’ve tried both the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics (where the area “Judea and Samaria” is in the tables showing the distribution of the Jewish population, but not in the tables concerning Arab citizens), and the Palestinian equivalent (where the closest I got was that 5.1% of “health insured persons in Palestine” in 2011 had Israeli health insurance).
The problem seems to be that Arab citizens of Israel are actually not allowed to live in the occupied territories. If some nevertheless do, they wouldn’t want anyone to know.
At http://visualizingpalestine.org/visuals/identity-crisis-the-israeli-id-system, there are maps indicating where holders of different identity cards are allowed to live, and the occupied territories (as well as significant parts of Israel proper) appear to be out of bounds for Arab citizens of Israel. Under “Sources and data” there’s a link to an article by Helga Tawil-Souri from 2011. A table in that article explains that Jewish citizens of Israel are permitted to reside in “Israel, settlements (and illegal outposts)”, and are permitted to travel to “Israel, settlements (and illegal outposts), majority of the West Bank". Conversely, Arab citizens of Israel are permitted to reside in “Israel” and are permitted to travel to “Israel”.
I haven’t been able to confirm this with any legal reference, but that’s what I’ve got.
There is also a project called Love under Apartheid, http://www.loveunderapartheid.com/, which is devoted to the problems of couples where one is from Israel and the other from the occupied territories (or where one is from the West Bank and the other from Gaza, which is also difficult). This is likely one of the main reasons for Arab citizens of Israel wanting to move to the occupied territories. I haven’t seen any statistics on their site, though.
Good luck, and I hope you post any substantive findings.

Under new the terms of the deal, Iran has agreed to halt enrichment of uranium above 5% purity, and "neutralise" its stockpile of near-20%-enriched uranium. In return, US, Russia, China, France and Britain - plus Germany agreed to suspend certain sanctions on trade in gold and precious metals, Iran's automotive sector, and its petrochemical exports. The Israeli government called the deal reached with Iran over its nuclear program a "historic mistake," saying it only slows a nuclear program that will still be capable of producing a bomb.

Answer
he Israeli assumption is that once it attacks Iran the US will back it. I am not sure that this working assumption is detached from reality and even it is, there is always a good chance for misperceptions of the Israeli leadership regarding this assumption. On the other hand I think that the Israeli leadership still prefers increasing the sanctions in order to reach a better deal with Iran.

As Israel shows no signs to finish the occupation and withdrew the IDF and settlements, more concerns are raised about its democratic viability
Relevant answer
Answer
Weird that one could call Israel a "democracy" when it keeps on justifying its occupation of Palestine and its corollary effects of settlement expansion despite it being against all international laws.
Israeli policies are not decided by the Jewish democrats but the extremist Zionists in its midst. How on earth could one accept the incendiary remarks of some of its Parliamentarians who have time and again labelled Palestinians as not fit to live and should all be killed? There are also the peace-loving ones among the Jews who can see through this extremist agenda of the Israeli state and rightly have been involved in campaigns of awareness to mobilize world opinion to reject the genocidal mindset of successive Israeli regimes.
Another thing. is it proper of a democracy to reject UN resolutions every time it call upon it to act as in 242?
