🇨🇳China passes law to make Islam 'compatible with socialism' | Al Jazeera English
China has passed a new law that seeks to "Sinicize" Islam within the next five years, the latest move by Beijing to rewrite how the religion is practised. China's main English newspaper, Global Times, reported on Saturday that after a meeting with representatives from eight Islamic associations, government officials "agreed to guide Islam to be compatible with socialism and implement measures to Sinicize the religion." The newspaper did not provide further details or the names of the associations that agreed to the decree. China has embarked on an aggressive "Sinification" campaign in recent years with faith groups that were largely tolerated in the past seeing their freedoms shrink under Chinese President Xi Jinping, China's most powerful leader since Mao Zedong.

What Agencies Are Affected By The Government Shutdown?
The partial government shutdown tied the second longest in history on Tuesday — its 18th day — with little signs of progress. The continued closure of nine agencies added a new sense of urgency to the situation as negotiations seem to have broken down. The White House has largely doubled down on its demands for border wall funding, and Democrats have refused to include any money for it. President Donald Trump is expected to make his case to the public on Tuesday evening in a prime-time television address. The address comes before a planned presidential trip to the southern border Thursday. In a tweet Monday, the president said he would outline the "Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern Border." The major networks agreed to carry the president's address, prompting Democratic leadership to demand equal time for a response. The rebuttal will be delivered by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer from the U.S. Capitol.

UK PM Theresa May's Brexit statement- BBC News
Theresa May says concerns have been expressed about leaving the EU without a deal, with calls for it to be ruled out. She says the best way to rule out a no deal Brexit is to agree a deal with the EU. The only other way is to extend Article 50, something she says the EU is unlikely to agree to without a clear plan of how an agreement can be reached. When people say the government should rule out no deal, she says they are essentially saying "we should revoke Article 50". This doesn't respect the Brexit vote, she says. Others are calling for a second referendum, she says, but "our duty is to implement the first one". She is concerned about the precedent that would set for future refendums. She says she does not know what Jeremy Corbyn believes regarding this, as he has "not engaged".

Israel election results: Netanyahu on top? | DW News
Israeli prime minister Bejmain Netanyahu looks to have secured victory in the country's 2019 general election. With most of the votes counted, he is running neck and neck with his main challenger Benny Gantz of the centrist Blue and White Party. But Netanyahu is in a stronger position to form a coalition with the support of a number of right-wing parties. A fifth term would make Netanyahu Israel's longest-serving Prime Minister, even surpassing the founding father of the Jewish state, David Ben-Gurion. Earlier, after voting ended, exit polls appeared to indicate a neck-and-neck race between Netanyahu and his closest rival, Benny Gantz of the centrist Blue and White Alliance. As the night went on and vote counts came in, it remained a close-run thing.

Notre Dame Fire: 'Everything is burning' in Paris cathedral blaze after spire collapse
The fire started at 6:50 p.m. local time, according to city fire officials, and began to quickly spread. The cause of the blaze was not known, but French media quoted the Paris fire brigade as saying the fire is "potentially linked" to a 6 million-euro ($6.8 million) renovation project on the church's spire and its 250 tons of lead. Prosecutors opened an investigation as Paris police said there were no reported deaths. Some 400 firefighters were battling the blaze well into the night. Flames shot out of the roof behind the nave of the cathedral, among the most visited landmarks in the world. Hundreds of people lined up bridges around the island that houses the cathedral, watching in shock as acrid smoke rose in plumes. As ABC News aired the fire live, the spire collapsed. A church spokesman told French media that, after the collapse, all of the cathedral's frame began burning, AP reports.

TRUMP 2020: President Trump Re-Election Campaign Rally - FULL SPEECH
President Trump formally launched his 2020 re-election campaign Tuesday night before a jam-packed crowd in Orlando's Amway Center arena, and quickly unloaded on the media organizations and government actors he said tried their hardest with "everything they had" to bring down both his candidacy and presidency. To chants of "USA," Trump took the stage after brief remarks by Vice President Mike Pence and first lady Melania Trump, and recalled his unlikely rise to the presidency. "We stared down the unholy alliance of lobbyists and donors and special interests who made a living bleeding our country dry," Trump said. "The swamp is fighting back so viciously and violently. For the last two and a half years, we have been under siege.” With some help from the crowd as the rally continued, Trump appeared to settle on a new campaign slogan: "Keep America Great." Just over four years ago, Trump descended through the pink marble and brass atrium of Trump Tower to announce his candidacy for president, the first step on a journey few analysts believed would take him all the way to the White House. This time, thousands of Trump supporters arrived more than 40 hours in advance to secure a spot in the Amway Center, despite sweltering heat. Some had been camped in chairs for several nights. #MAGA #Trump #KAG

What The G7 Summit Is All About
You've probably heard about the G7 summit. It's an annual meeting of world leaders, where they discuss global issues, and pose for an obligatory photo op. But what about the G8 and G20? Here are the differences. G7, or "group of seven," mainly has to do with politics. After the first oil shock of the 1970s, economies across the world were suffering, and global leaders wanted to do something about it. So, a group of government officials decided to meet and figure things out. Members are Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. In addition, the presidents of the European Council and the European Commission represent the EU at G7 summits. In 1998, Russia joined the club, making it the G8, but it was kicked out in 2014 after its annexation of Crimea. So now we're back to G7. However, Trump said Friday that Russia should be reinstated in G7 talks. The G20 is all about money and has 20 members. Its members represent 85 percent of global economic output, and it's a little less exclusive than the G7. The members are Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union. Both summits have traditionally drawn outrage and protest among activist groups demonstrating against capitalism, patriarchy and racism. This year's G7 summit takes place in Quebec on Friday and Saturday.
