Iran as a potential threat not just
to Israel, but also to European
countries, Chancellor Angela
Merkel said yesterday at a joint
news conference with Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
But she stopped short of endors-
ing her host s demand that Tehran
give up all sensitive nuclear projects
under any negotiated deal with
world powers, and reiterated Berlin s
opposition to Israeli settlements on
occupied land where the Palestinians
Germany is Israel s most impor-
tant ally in Europe, where the
Netanyahu government frets it is
losing support given troubled peace
talks with the Palestinians. That
makes Merkel s views a bellwether
of European sentiment on Middle
The German chancellor visited
Jerusalem with her cabinet to mark
almost 50 years of bilateral ties with
Israel, which was founded in part
as a haven for survivors of the Holo-
"We see the threat not just as a
threat for the state of Israel but as
a general threat for Europe as well,"
she said of a potential Iranian bomb,
adding that Germany would pursue
international talks with Tehran on
its nuclear activities. (Reuters)

Rebekah Brooks has told the phone-
hacking trial she did not realise the
practice was illegal when she was edi-
tor of the News of the World.
Brooks said she "didn t think any-
body, me included, knew it was ille-
She told the Old Bailey she felt
"shock and horror" after she discovered
murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler s
phone had been hacked.
Brooks, one of seven defendants on
trial, denies four charges.
She said she was never asked to sanc-
tion the accessing of voicemails for a
story during her time as editor of the
"No journalist ever came to me and
said, We re working on so-and-so story
but we need to access their voicemail
and we need to ask for my sanction to
do it ," she said.
"Even though I didn t know it was
illegal, I absolutely felt it was in the
category of a serious breach of priva-
cy."Brooks denies conspiring to hack
phones, conspiring to commit miscon-
duct in public office, and conspiring
to cover up evidence to pervert the
course of justice.
Brooks said she knew nothing about
the tasking of the convicted phone
hacker Glenn Mulcaire to access 13-
year-old Milly s voicemails in 2002.
She told the court she only became
aware Milly s phone had been hacked
on July 4, 2011.
The NoW was closed later that
month following the revelations. (BBC)

Abu Mohammed al-Jolani, the chief
of al-Nusra Front, called on the
Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)
to stop turning its guns on its allies
and return to the fold of al Qaeda s
"I swear by God, if you again refuse
God s judgment, and do not stop your
plague and pushing your ignorant
ideology on the Muslim nation then
you will be expelled, even from Iraq,"
al-Jolani said in the more than eight-
minute message produced by al-Nusra
Front s media wing al-Manara al-
Earlier this month, even top al
Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri
weighed in on the situation, and the
group s central leadership posted a
notice online saying ISIS "is not a
branch of the al Qaeda group."
The al-Nusra Front and ISIS are
both fighting in Syria. Al-Nusra and
other Islamist insurgents argue that
the toppling of President Bashar al-
Assad s government is the top priority,
but ISIS wants the formation of a
radical Islamist state to be the main

fighting against al-Nusra members
and against civilians who support the
