#Afghanistan continues to also be of continued concern. Our team has been monitoring reports on Kunduz still not safe despite claims by the Afghan Presidency to the contrary. +Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) has announced that it is pulling out of Kunduz and is re-evaluating its' entire service in Afghanistan right now. We will be assessing this continually which is ever so becoming challenging.
Our team has been assessing the latest as attacks have continued with no apparent end in sight as some horrific murders have occurred. As we assessed the latest, one telling comment was from Amir Oren from +Haaretz הארץ as he noted that the challenges faced are due to moves by the right wing in Israel and as The Israeli Prime Minister's image continues to suffer--especially as the Right Wing Leaders are defying him with visits to the Temple Mount--exactly like what Ariel Sharon Did 15 years ago which led to Sharon being Prime Minister. The Possibility of a Palestinian Third Intifada seems to be on the horizon.
