Iran, Turkey lash out at UAE over agreement with Israel


 Iran, Turkey lash out at UAE over agreement with Israel Iran and Turkey lashed out at their regional rival the United Arab Emirates on Friday over its decision to normalize diplomatic relations with Israel in a U.S.-brokered deal, accusing it of betraying the Palestinian cause. Iran’s Foreign Ministry called the deal a “dagger that was unjustly struck by the UAE in the backs of the Palestinian people and all Muslims.” Turkey said the peoples of the region “will never forget and will never forgive this hypocritical behavior” by the UAE. The UAE, which has never fought Israel and has quietly been improving ties for years, said the agreement put a hold on Israel’s plans to unilaterally annex parts of the occupied West Bank, which the Palestinians view as the heartland of their future state.

 Trump admits he’s blocking postal cash to stop mail-in votes President Donald Trump frankly acknowledged Thursday that he’s starving the U.S. Postal Service of money in order to make it harder to process an expected surge of mail-in ballots, which he worries could cost him the election. In an interview on Fox Business Network, Trump explicitly noted two funding provisions that Democrats are seeking in a relief package that has stalled on Capitol Hill. Without the additional money, he said, the Postal Service won’t have the resources to handle a flood of ballots from voters who are seeking to avoid polling places during the coronavirus pandemic. “If we don’t make a deal, that means they don’t get the money,” Trump told host Maria Bartiromo. “That means they can’t have universal mail-in voting; they just can’t have it.”

 Q&A with Rich Somma, AP Oddities editor What makes a good Odd story?What I look for in odd news is something that most people can relate to. A funny or ironic situation, something strange, bizarre or mysterious. And I’m always looking for animal stories. They are always among the most popular and universally loved. Also, Florida: Anyone who keeps an eye out for odd stories knows that most of them come from this special stateAny all-time favorites?We did a story a long time ago about a man who was driving on a highway when his hood open. Instead of pulling over and closing the hood, the man stubbornly continued to drive for miles while trying to stand up and peer out the window. I believe that one was one of the most popular stories for quite a few days. A recent favorite: A criminal defendant tried faking his death to avoid a jail sentence, but prosecutors say his phony death certificate had a glaring spelling error. The purported death certificate spelled “Registry,” as ”Regsitry.” Why do you think Oddities are important?There is a hunger for odd news, and when we don’t have many of them, we hear from the people who enjoy them. They are important because when you have a lot of news that’s heavy and depressing, an odd story can clear the mood and help you refocus. They are fun to share on social media. These stories bring people together.
