“Suspicion arose that the documents presented by the driver were not his and he was apparently trying to impersonate someone else,” a police spokesperson said.

(WASHINGTON) LATEST: As is well known, the monstrous regiment of anti-Israel “activists” – BDSers, antifa fanatics, Muslim infiltrators at Black Lives Matter rallies – have been attempting to blame Israel for the death of George Floyd saying knee-on-neck method of restraint came from Israeli police training #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.19: Shortly after Floyd’s death, the Democratic Socialists of America’s BDS national working group tweeted, “The police violence happening tonight in Minneapolis is straight out of the IDF playbook,” adding, “US cops train in Israel.” A pro-BDS petition to the University of California made similar claims: Al-Awda, the Palestine Right of Return Coalition, a BDS group that has ties to terrorist groups in the Middle East, issued a statement on June 8 that featured a cartoon showing an American police officer and an Israeli soldier, arm-in-arm, sitting with their knees over the necks of a black man and a Palestinian man respectively. The cartoon appeared first on the Fatah Facebook page and was then published in the Palestinian Authority (PA) newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida. That wasn’t all

Israel, Blamed for George Floyd’s Death, Replies to Its Calumniators

“We must stop training our American police officers to be gestapo units. #GeorgeFloyd #Palestine,” tweeted Abbas Hamideh of the same Al-Awda. Similarly, the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights and a student leader in Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) also blamed Israel for the police tactics, claiming that “the Israeli military trains US police in racist and repressive policing tactics, which systematically targets Black and Brown bodies.” Israel, of course, does no such thing. And the American police who have gone to Israel for training can testify to that effect: Others in the anti-Israel universe have chimed in with similar charges. For many, the death of George Floyd by Derek Chauvin, who never attended any training sessions conducted by Israeli law enforcement, should nonetheless be blamed on Israel, that mighty colonial-settler empire that now bestrides the world like a colossus. No need for evidence. Just make the charge. Repeat it enough and it’s bound to stick. And so, in the great tradition of Linda Sarsour, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Nihad Awad and so many others, the anti-Israel charges came fast and furious at so many of those George-Floyd-Black-Lives-Matter rallies. On many signs the slogan reads: “From Minneapolis to Palestine/Racism is a Crime.”

Still others claimed in the same vein that “We know the Minneapolis police were also trained by Israeli counter-terrorism officers” (not the regular police), according to a ferociously anti-Israel pro-BDS petition at the University of California, signed by dozens of campus groups. It said: “The knee-to-neck choke-hold that Chauvin used to murder George Floyd has been used and perfected to torture Palestinians by Israeli occupation forces through 72 years of ethnic cleansing and dispossession. Police departments view Israeli Defense Force tactics as models for responding to ‘public health and safety crises.”…………….The Israelis were not about to let those calumnies go unanswered.

The story is at Algemeiner.com: An Israel Police spokesperson appeared to push back on Tuesday [June 9] against efforts by some activists in far-left circles to blame the Jewish state for police brutality in the US: Charges that certain tactics — including the knee-to-neck restraint move that led to George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis two weeks ago — were taught to American law enforcement personnel by Israeli counterparts have been circulating online recently.

It was time to state the truth: There are many thousands of national, state, and local police forces around the world, in Europe (France) in South America (Brazil and a dozen others countries), in Asia (India, China), and of course in the United States, that use the knee-on-neck chokehold, all without any input or training from Israel: On June 9 Israeli Police foreign media spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld tweeted, “There is no procedure that allows an officer of the #israel police dept to carry out an arrest by placing a knee on the neck of a suspect.”

“None of police Counter terrorism training that #Israel national police provide to foreign law enforcement officers involves such a measure,” he added: These were definitive statements. There is “no procedure” that allows an Israeli police officer “to place a knee on the neck of a suspect.”……………The Israelis do not permit their own officers to use such a chokehold……………………They do not train others in how to perform such a chokehold…………….Period. End of story. No wiggle-room was left in that answer by Micky Rosenfeld…………………………….But who will listen to him or to any other defender of Israel when Antifa and BDSers and Palestinian propagandists still manage to shout down those who tell the truth, while they continue to scream their nonsense and lies?

(TEL AVIV, Israel.) LATEST: Netanyahu pushes for a 5th term in office as Likud and its political allies in Yamina, Shas and United Torah Judaism fail to obtain a 61-seat majority on Tuesday, with lawmakers issuing a decree for a squatter settlement – Mevoot Yericho located in the Jordan Valley – as an official one #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.17: The Israeli government has issued its approval for a settlement in the occupied West Bank, in what looks like a desperate attempt by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to boost his waning support ahead of the upcoming vote. All Israeli settlements on the occupied territories are deemed illegal under international law, yet Tel Aviv distinguishes between those it approved and those it did not.

“Unlike in the April election, President Reuven Rivlin is expected to begin consultations with the factions that cross the threshold only when the results are official: He is expected to limit whoever he tasks with forming a government to four weeks, without the 14-day extension traditionally granted.

Sources in Likud said Monday that if the Likud and its political allies in Yamina, Shas and United Torah Judaism fail to obtain a 61-seat majority on Tuesday, efforts would begin immediately to unseat the prime minister as head of the party: The sources said those efforts would intensify if Rivlin tasks Gantz with forming a coalition government.

Netanyahu said in interviews on Monday that Likud and its allies did not have 61 seats in the latest private polls taken for his party: He said that majority would not be obtained unless turnout was higher than in April in traditional Likud strongholds.

Both Netanyahu and Gantz visited the Western Wall and reached out to voters on social media on Monday. Likud petitioned the Central Elections Committee and blocked Gantz from holding a rally with media at his childhood home of Kfar Ahim in the northern Negev: Gantz warned against the potential for violence in polling stations, and called on Netanyahu to accept the results if he is defeated. In an interview with the Knesset Channel, Gantz promised to learn from what he admitted was a mistake in the April election and not declare victory after the exit polls, even if they are positive: Gantz announced on Monday that if he forms the government, former IDF chief of staff MK Gabi Ashkenazi will be defense minister.

“There are two domains which are of significant importance in the State or Israel: security and education,” Gantz said. “With that, I have decided to appoint Gabi Ashkenazi, a former IDF Chief of Staff and Golani soldier who rehabilitated the IDF following the Lebanon War, for the position of defense minister. Gabi knows how to restore deterrence and a sense of security to Israeli citizens in the South, in the Gaza envelope, in the North and throughout the country.”……………Gantz said another former IDF chief of staff, MK Moshe Ya’alon, who served as defense minister under prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, would become education minister.

“Former chief of staff and defense minister Moshe Ya’alon, a man of unimpeachable moral character and someone who knows how to bring together the factions of Israeli society, I appoint to the position of education minister to repair the rifts in Israeli society,” Gantz said: “Now you just have to decide – an extreme, immunity government or a secular, unity government.”

The foreign minister post has been reserved for Blue and White co-leader Yair Lapid, while the most senior woman in Blue and White, MK Miki Haimovich, would be environmental protection minister. MK Meir Cohen would be Knesset Speaker: “Who would you prefer to face Hamas, former IDF chief of staff Gabi Ashkenazi or the man who gives [Hamas] suitcases full of dollars?” Lapid tweeted, in a reference to Netanyahu. “Who would you prefer as education minister: [Yamina candidate Bezalel] Smotrich and his racism, or an honest man of values like Bogie Ya’alon?”

Netanyahu mocked the announcement, saying that if Gantz has already started allocating portfolios, “What positions did he promise [Joint List leaders] Ayman Odeh and Ahmad Tibi?””

On Sunday, the cabinet issued a decree recognising one such squatter settlement – Mevoot Yericho located in the Jordan Valley – as an official one. #Netanyahu is trying to shift attention from his corruption scandals as he vows to annex Jordan Valley in the occupied #WestBank if reelected https://t.co/ROIjtBd3t8 pic.twitter.com/t6j0u4bfew— RT (@RT_com) September 11, 2019 “The government passed the prime minister’s motion to build Mevoot Yericho,” a statement from Netanyahu’s office said following a weekly government meeting, which was conspicuously held in the Jordan Valley this time.Such movements are quite rare, as, according to the Israeli media, only five similar decisions were taken over the past decade.The fact that this step was made just days ahead of the upcoming snap elections prompted some people, including Israel’s Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, to believe that it is for the sake of Netanyahu’s electoral campaign.The prime minister earlier vowed to annex the whole Jordan Valley, which accounts for roughly one third of the occupied West Bank, if elected.

Also on rt.com An Israeli soldier in the West Bank. August 2019. © Mussa Qawasma / Reuters Netanyahu’s West Bank annexation plan is vile attempt to win votes at expense of peace – Turkey Mandelblit criticized the settlement approval, arguing that there was “no vital or urgent need” for it and adding that it could be detrimental to Israel’s international posture.Meanwhile, the situation for Netanyahu indeed appears to be desperate. Mired in corruption scandals, the troubled prime minister barely managed to squeak out a victory against his rival, ex-military chief Benny Gantz leading a centrist Blue and White Alliance, in April. People rally in #TelAviv against #Netanyahu’s govt ahead of upcoming legislative elections in #Israel pic.twitter.com/8NBI0r4O3J— RT (@RT_com) September 15, 2019 Yet, he still failed to form a ruling coalition in a development that proved to be quite humiliating for him as he became the first ever prime minister to commit such a blunder.

Now, with his popularity gradually fading, he seems to be ready to stop at nothing to win the support of the rightwingers, which may be crucial for him: However, his trump card of annexing the Jordan Valley might still be turned against him as it could effectively spell an end to the two-state solution and stir up a hornet’s nest of geopolitical tensions.

JERUSALEM: ‘ Israel jail alleged Jewish extremist for 6-months without trial ‘

#AceNewsReport – JERUSALEM:Aug.05: Israel has jailed an alleged Jewish extremist for six months without charges or trial, AP reported.

Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon signed an order late Tuesday that jails Mordechai Meyer, from the West Bank settlement of Maaleh Adumim.

For the first time “administrative detention” has been applied against an Israeli since the crackdown against militant Jews began following two deadly attacks last week. Meyer, said to be 18 years old, was being held in connection to “his involvement in violent activities and recent terror attacks.”

He was suspected of links to attacks against a church in northern Israel and another in Jerusalem, as well as attacks on Palestinian property, Israeli media say.

BRITAIN: ‘ Government Agrees Arms Deal to Israel Immediately After Bombardment of Gaza ‘

#AceNewsReport – BRITAIN:July.02: The UK government approved £4 million worth of arms sales to Israel in the immediate months following the Israeli government’s military bombardment of Gaza last summer, new research reveals.

Detailed analysis published Thursday indicates that the related arms licenses cover military hardware likely to be deployed if violence in the besieged coastal strip resumes.

Among the arms sales Britain presided over were special components for military helicopters and a range of hi-tech parts for guidance and navigation systems used by the Israeli Defense Force (IDF).

#AceNewsReport – PALESTINE:July.01: Dozens of Hamas members have been arrested who are suspected of planning attacks and trying to build up the Palestinian militant group in the West Bank, Israel’s Shin Bet security service said Wednesday.

The Islamist group said Israel was just trying to sabotage its relationship with other Arab powers, Reuters reported. The raid followed the roadside shooting of a Jewish settler Monday.

His killing was not claimed by any faction and Israeli officials said it looked like an attack by a lone Palestinian.

SWITZERLAND: ‘ Prosecutors open case on alleged spying on Iran’s Nuclear Program ‘

#AceNewsReport – #BreakingUpdate: SWIZERLAND:June.11: The Swiss Attorney General’s office has opened a criminal case into alleged spying on talks over Iran’s nuclear program, TASS reported.

The probe concerns unidentified actors involved in prohibited spying activities in Switzerland, said the office’s spokesman, Andre Marty. Kaspersky Lab earlier said it had uncovered a spy campaign targeting hotels that hosted the negotiations between Tehran and six world powers.

Israeli Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben-Dahan on Wednesday denied a report that Israel carried out a cyber-espionage campaign targeting the hotels.

US officials have accused Israel of spying on the talks in the past, the Jerusalem Post said.

ISRAEL: ‘ NETANYAHU JUSTIFIES POLICE SHOOTING OF MAN WHO ATTACKED POLICE CAR WITH A KNIFE ‘

#AceNewsServices – Nov.10 –  The police shot and killed a 22-year-old man from the northern Arab village of Kafr Kana in the early hours of Saturday morning, after he allegedly attacked a police car with a knife.

However, CCTV footage may contradict the officers’ statement that a warning shot was fired in the air before the man was fatally wounded you can judge for yourselves. 

A large protest was held in the Galilee village on Saturday to protest the shooting.

At its climax, clashes erupted between stone throwers and the large police force stationed nearby. A general strike among Israeli Arabs was announced by The Higher Arab Monitoring Committee, which called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to fire Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch.

However, Netanyahu backed the officers and harshly criticized the protesters in Kafr Kana. “Israel is a state of law,” he said. “We won’t tolerate disturbances and riots.We will take action against stone throwers, those who block traffic arteries, and those who call for establishing a Palestinian state in place of the State of Israel.

Whoever does not respect Israeli law will be punished to the fullest extent.

I will direct the interior minister to consider stripping the citizenship of those who call for the destruction of the State of Israel.”

‘ ISRAEL DOES NOT SEE ISLAMIC STATE AS A THREAT AND HERE IS WHY – OPINION ‘

#AceNewsServices (Analysis & Opinion) October 24  At first sight, it seems that Israel is just as preoccupied with the rise of Islamic State as anyone else.

PHOTO: A masked man speaking in what is believed to be a North American accent in a video that Islamic State militants released in September 2014 is pictured in this still frame from video obtained by Reuters October 7, 2014.

PHOTO: A masked man speaking in what is believed to be a North American accent in a video that Islamic State militants released in September 2014 is pictured in this still frame from video obtained by Reuters October 7, 2014.

Israeli media report diligently on the extremist group’s assault on the Kurdish town of Kobani and run at least a story every few days on its atrocities.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu references Islamic State frequently, as do other Israeli ministers. And the stories of two Palestinian citizens of Israel who died fighting for the group have been recently featured in the press.

Still, Israel remains the least concerned and least directly threatened country in a region increasingly rocked by Islamic State’s advance. It certainly does not see the group as an external threat. Shocking though the events in Syria and Iraq are, Israel is far beyond the range of even the most sophisticated of Islamic State’s weapons.

The group’s immediate territorial interests do not extend to anywhere near Israeli borders, and its support in areas adjacent to Israel is still negligible.  

What’s more, unlike many militant groups and states in the region, Islamic State has declared itself emphatically disinterested in intervening in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, preferring instead to draw its support from Sunni revanchism and introducing a semblance of order into war-torn regions of Iraq.

Islamic State also does not yet pose an internal threat to Israel. Unlike most countries bordering Syria, Israel has not been politically or demographically unsettled by the civil war there. The diversified systems of control employed by Israel – some liberal democracy and some military rule — have cemented differences among the country’s constituencies disgruntled with the Israeli government.

The divisions have precluded the emergence of a broad uprising similar to those that constituted the Arab Spring. The relatively short, highly militarized border between Israel and Syria has prevented the influx of refugees into Israel, as well as any significant spread of the fighting.

In the absence of incentives to change policy, Israel remains determined to display an official disinterest in Iraq and a staunch neutrality toward Syria. Although the government has often expressed sympathy for victims of the Syrian civil war and offered some of them medical treatment, and has on one or two occasions hit targets in Syria, Israel has been careful to signal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that it considers him a relatively reliable neighbor and would not work actively to replace him.

It’s also unlikely that Israeli leaders will come under any internal pressure to change this position. While the images of the war in Syria have prompted some Palestinians to travel abroad and take up arms against the Syrian regime, sometimes fighting alongside jihadist organizations, the numbers have been small — and their wrath, for now, directed at the Syrian regime, not at Israel. Images of Islamic State’s atrocities, combined with the group’s religious fanaticism, contempt for nation-states and express disinterest in the Palestinian cause have left Palestinians — largely secular, nationalist and deeply committed to building their own nation-state — more alienated than attracted.

Even attempts by Israeli centrists and the U.S. to tie progress in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process to the fight against Islamic State have left Israel unmoved. Israel, the argument went, should make concessions in its talks with Palestinians to mollify Arab populations as their governments yet again throw in with the Americans — and by extension, with the Israelis. This tactic rests on the idea that the only real threat that Islamic State poses to Israel, however remotely, is if it toppled any of the “moderate” Arab states, especially Jordan, by invading them or capitalizing on their local discontents, or a combination of the two.

But the Israeli government, which has no interest, political or ideological, in facilitating a two-state solution, has so far responded with a shrug. The view in Israel is that the moderate Arab regimes are sufficiently threatened by the spread of Islamic State to prioritize drawing the Americans in, warts and all. If anything triggers revolutions in these countries, it will not be the plight of the Palestinians.

The lack of direct threats notwithstanding, Israel has been able to extract some short-term gains from unfolding catastrophe. With the West again mobilizing against a radical Islamist group, Netanyahu find himself on the familiar turf of the “war on terror.” He is capitalizing on this by trying to equate Palestinian nationalism — especially the religious wing of it — with Islamic State at every conceivable opportunity (even if with little perceptible effect).  Second, Israel is again making itself useful to the West as a corner of stability and pro-Western sentiment  in an otherwise turbulent Middle East — and is using this to push the Palestinian issue further down the agenda.

These considerations apart,  Israel sees Islamic State as something that’s happening to other people — and the country will do its best to keep it so.

Doctor from Israel joined ranks of Islamic State, hospital confirms

According to the statement released by Barzilai, Othman Abdal-Kian finished his medical degree in Jordan and began doing his residency at the hospital in Ashkelon in February after passing tests qualifying him to temporarily practice medicine in Israel. 

He chose to do an elective month at Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba which he was supposed to have started in May.

Abdal-Kian failed to show up at the hospital on the prescribed date and all contact with him was lost.

Security authorities questioned the hospital administration at Barzilai about Abdal-Kian’s tenure at the facility, informing them that he had foregone his medical career to join Islamic State forces.

Authorities believe that a small number of Israeli-Arabs have joined the ranks of the organization which has taken over large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria through the use of brutal terror tactics.

SEA: ‘ Rise of the Child Soldiers of Pakistan ‘

#AceNewsServices – PAKISTAN – October 11 – The phenomenon of “child soldiers” is not new to this globe. From the far western shores of Americas, to Africa and Asia, the world continues to witness the rise of soldiers that are mere children

' Child Soldiers of Pakistan '

‘ Child Soldiers of Pakistan ‘

The world is stunned beyond limits to see that humanity has fallen to this level in the exploitation of young innocent children as child recruits for fundamentalist agendas.

The use of child soldiers has spread to almost all the global armed conflict. Though an exact number is impossible to define, thousands of child soldiers are illegally serving in armed conflict around the world.

According to Do Something Org, many countries are allegedly reported on use of under-age soldiers, these include Afghanistan, Colombia, India, Iraq, Israel, Libya, Mali, Pakistan, Thailand, Sudan, Syria, Yemen, and more.

 I am sure many are already geared up with the anti-Pakistani stereotypes that deem that whole of Pakistan is a terrorist country and on this list,  I get this hatred towards Pakistan is a global trend but not many of you know the dynamics of child militia here. And am taking this opportunity to shed some light on various important areas.

Pakistan|Trending Local Child Soldiers issue

The growing phenomenon of child militants in Pakistan is a horrific reality, one mirrored in various conflicts throughout history. Young innocent children are targeted because they can be easily brain washed by militant groups.

The cycle of poverty, large family size and economic hardships are factors that leave vulnerable parents little choice but to send children in local madrassas as they are free of cost.   The constitution Article 25-A says the State shall provide free and compulsory education to children between ages of 5 to 16. However that’s not being followed as millions of children are out of school and our literary rate is appalling low at 48%.

"Madrasa" is the Arabic word for any type of educational institution, whether secular or religious.

Most people have no choice but to send their children to religious schools or madrassas as. Moreover, there are huge discrepancies because education in Pakistan is heavily influenced by religion and in recent times Wahabi agendas.

The main source of funding for these madrasa groups is coming from Saudi Arabia. In fact, this whole phenomenon that we are confronting, which Al Qaeda is a part of, is very closely associated with Saudi Arabia’s financial and religious projects for the Muslim world as a whole. Its in greater interests to keep Pakistani children stuck into poverty cycles as they serve a greater agenda, shame on Pakistani government for colluding against its own.

Local madrassas cater Pakistani children as well as international students who avail the lucrative scholarship fundings  from Persian Gulf and Saudi Arabia. 

However coming back to Pakistan, the different militant groups including TTP, LeT and so on have been able to harness the young Pakistani children in scores through enticing tactics.

Local Militant Recruitment Mechanism

The militant have sinister agendas however on the forefront they are able to cajole and manipulate young children by reminding them the sufferings of the Muslim world and that they have to play a role in eradication of misery; through this jihad.

Upon meeting some under-age boy militants in Swat, I found out that for years they have attended the madrassas whose lecturers and mentors taught them things like ” The Pakistan Army is the ally of the Western capitalist world; they the  imperialists are all the enemies of Islam. The fight against them is justified; they are apostates, the friends of the infidels.”

The second message drummed into them is one which the world is facing today. The increasing intolerance towards Muslims and followers of faith Islam within their own regions and in the western world. Sadly this is capitalized upon very well by the militant groups. The young recruits are taught that they have to stand up against the helplessness of Muslim women, daughters and sisters that are getting dishonored by non-Muslims in Afghanistan, Iraq and Palestine etc.

They also watch videos purportedly showing the killing of Muslims by non-Muslims in Afghanistan and the Middle East. Instructors tell them that a war is being waged against Islam.

‘ Child Soldiers Recruited by Saudi Arabia as Terrorists as young as five ‘

That the western world is at war with Islam has given a trump card to Pakistan’s militants for this sort of radical enticement of vulnerable children.

These main themes in lectures are taught to in both the senior recruits camps (ages 16 and older) and junior ones (ages 7 to 15), all are centered on vengeance and the need to do something for the wronged Muslims.The children are completely isolated from the normal outside world.

The young would-be suicide bombers are also persuaded by the promise of Paradise. This is, I repeat a huge blasphemy against the real teachings for if have to view from Islamic point of view; suicide is strictly forbidden along with the killing of innocent persons. Allah, God is the author of life that has granted us the gift of life and we mere humans don’t have the authority to take it.

This using of innocent children by militancy has to stop now. But. The inability of the Pakistan army to meet internal security challenges effectively is a particularly worrying factor. Three generations of Pakistani children are suffering due to the impact of this futile jihadi indoctrination.

It is time to seriously put an end to this madness, before it consumes us within the dark abysses of hatred and destruction.I am so exhausted to waking up in the mornings with the first thought in mind,What the hell happened Pakistan? And then trying to fix it some how in my way.

Though, we can’t bring back the already dead Pakistani children militants and can hardly ease the misery of the grieving parents, it is time for Pakistan to asses the complex root causes behind this phenomenon and design solutions for protection of children from becoming part of militancy.

ISRAEL: ‘ Dozens of Masked Arab Rioters Lock Themselves Inside Al Aqsa Mosque on Temple Mount ‘

#AceNewsServices – ISRAEL (Jerusalem) – October 08 – Dozens of masked Arab rioters locked themselves inside the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount Wednesday morning after they injured at least four policemen with fire-bombs, cement blocks and large rocks during visits by Jews and foreign tourists to the holy site.

One of the fire-bombs was hurled from within the mosque. At least one of the policemen was directly hit by a Molotov cocktail, which struck his protective gear. The bottle exploded but did not ignite.

Policemen were treated at the scene for light injuries, and several Arabs reportedly were hurt in the violence that continued at least until noon.

Unlike previous riots, the police did not bar Jews and tourists from continuing to visit the Temple Mount compound.

Police said they will “continue to take action to show zero tolerance in the face of any attempt to disturb the peace and will act to arrest rioters and bring them to trial.”

The tough stand comes after years of escalating violence by Arabs to keep Jews off of the Temple Mount site.

Arabs blocked the entrance to the Al Aqsa mosque with marble slabs, ropes and anything else that does not move, and then even poured inflammable liquid on the barricade, which police succeeded in removing.
