2021.03.25 新聞導讀-以色列國會大選統計中、美國國務卿布林肯訪問北約團結盟友、以軍事兵偷竊武器、elbit軍火公司很賺錢、以國大選合縱連橫開始 在布魯塞爾,布林肯為北約在阿富汗的合作提供了動力 我來這裡是為了表達美國對北約的堅定承諾。” 美國國務卿安東尼·布林肯週二承諾,在經歷了長達四年的挫折之後,華盛頓將北約描述為過時,分裂和處於危機之中,從而重建和振興了跨大西洋軍事同盟。 布林肯表示,自從總統拜登(Joe Biden)總統於1月上任以來,美國首位訪問北約的高級官員 表示,該聯盟處於關鍵時刻,但在土耳其和俄羅斯天然氣內部爭端之後,該聯盟可能會變得更強大。 布林肯在會見北約秘書長延斯·斯托爾滕貝格時對記者說:“我來這裡是為了表達美國對北約的堅定承諾。” “美國首先要重建我們與北約盟國的伙伴關係,我們要重振同盟。” 在唐納德·特朗普(Donald Trump)總統與華盛頓進行了四年的摩擦之後,唐納德·特朗普(Donald Trump)說該聯盟已經過時,並且在國防開支目標上爭執不休。 拜登的長期知己布林肯說:“我們能做的最後一件事就是把這個聯盟視為理所當然。”他試圖修復特朗普“美國優先”政策造成的損害。 他說:“面對自己的缺點的過程可能會非常痛苦。這可能很醜陋。但最終,至少在今天,我們已經變得越來越強大。” 布林肯說,中國的軍事崛起和俄羅斯企圖破壞西方穩定的企圖是北約必須團結起來的威脅,敦促土耳其加入該聯盟。 土耳其已經購買了俄羅斯武器,因此在2019年短暫阻止了北約的防禦計劃,並對美國支持的叛亂分子發動了進攻,促使法國總統馬克龍(Emmanuel Macron)斷言北約“正在經歷腦部死亡”。 法國外交大臣讓·伊夫·勒·德里安(Jean-Yves Le Drian)對布林肯的提議表示歡迎。他說,北約成立於1949年,旨在遏制來自蘇聯的軍事威脅,已“重新發現”了其更好的自我。 他在北約總部說:“沒有北約,就不會有歐洲防禦,沒有歐洲人就不會有效率和相關的北約。”由於COVID-19,外交部長一年來首次親自見面。 斯托爾滕貝格(Stoltenberg)提出了北約可以現代化的領域-從氣候措施到為軍事行動提供更可持續的資金,並重新確定聯盟的重點,以幫助西方面對中國的技術實力和不斷壯大的武裝力量。 當被問及是否有可能從阿富汗撤軍以來,美國從2001年開始就一直在阿富汗發動戰爭。布林肯說,美國對方案的審查仍在進行中,他將傾聽並與盟國協商。北約外交部長將於週二晚些時候討論阿富汗問題。 德國外交大臣海克斯·馬斯(Heiko Maas)警告不要過早撤軍,這將使安全,教育,基礎設施和人權方面的收益迅速喪失。 馬斯說:“我們希望有條件地從阿富汗撤軍。” 德國從俄羅斯推動在波羅的海下完成有爭議的天然氣管道建設的努力仍然是一個分歧性的問題。眨眼,Nord Stream 2違背了歐盟的利益,並有可能破壞烏克蘭。他說他會向馬斯提出這個問題。 布林肯說:“拜登總統一直很清楚,他認為這條管道是個壞主意,對歐洲,對美國都是有害的,最終與歐盟自身的安全目標相抵觸。” 布林肯說:“這有可能損害烏克蘭,波蘭以及許多緊密合作夥伴和盟友的利益。”他說,美國法律要求華盛頓對參與該項目的公司施加製裁。 In Brussels, Blinken offers boost for NATO, cooperation on Afghanistan I've come here to express the United States' steadfast commitment (to NATO)," Blinken told reporters. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Tuesday pledged to rebuild and revitalize the transatlantic military alliance after a bruising four years when Washington portrayed NATO as outdated, divided and in crisis. The first top US official to visit NATO since President Joe Biden took office in January, Blinken said the alliance was at a pivotal moment but could emerge stronger after internal disputes over Turkey and Russian gas. "I've come here to express the United States' steadfast commitment (to NATO)," Blinken told reporters as he met NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg. "The United States wants to rebuild our partnerships, first and foremost with our NATO allies, we want to revitalize the alliance." After four years of friction with Washington under the presidency of Donald Trump, who said the alliance was obsolete and harangued allies over defense spending targets, NATO's European members have welcomed the change in tone, saying they are once again being consulted on strategy. "The last thing we can afford to do is take this alliance for granted," said Blinken, a longtime Biden confidant who is seeking to repair damage done by Trump's "America First" policy. "The process of confronting our own shortcomings can be very painful. It can be ugly. But ultimately, at least today, we've emerged the better and the stronger for it," he said. Blinken said China's military rise and Russia's attempts to destabilize the West were threats that required NATO to come together, urging Turkey to embrace the alliance. Having already bought Russian weapons, Turkey briefly blocked NATO defense plans in 2019 and launched an offensive on US-backed rebels in Syria, prompting French President Emmanuel Macron to assert that NATO was "experiencing brain death." French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian welcomed Blinken's overtures, saying that NATO, founded in 1949 to contain a military threat from the Soviet Union, had "rediscovered" its better self. "There will be no European defense without NATO and there will be no efficient and relevant NATO without Europeans," he said at NATO headquarters, where foreign ministers were meeting for the first time in person in a year, due to COVID-19. AFGHANISTAN, NORD STREAM 2 Stoltenberg has set out areas where NATO could modernize - from climate measures to more sustainable funding of military operations and refocusing the alliance to help the West face China's technological prowess and growing armed forces. Asked about any possible withdrawal from Afghanistan, where the United States has been at war since 2001, Blinken said a US review of options was still underway and he would listen and consult with allies. NATO foreign ministers will discuss Afghanistan later on Tuesday. German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas warned against a premature pull-out that would see gains in security, education, infrastructure and human rights quickly lost. "We want a conditions-based withdrawal of all forces from Afghanistan," Maas said. Germany's push to complete construction of a controversial gas pipeline under the Baltic Sea from Russia remained a divisive issue. Blinken said Nord Stream 2 ran counter to the European Union's interests and could undermine Ukraine. He said he would raise the issue with Maas. "President Biden has been very clear, he believes the pipeline is a bad idea, bad for Europe, bad for the United States, ultimately it is in contradiction to the EU's own security goals," Blinken said. "It has the potential to undermine the interests of Ukraine, Poland and a number of close partners and allies," Blinken said, saying that a US law required Washington to impose sanctions on companies participating in the project. 以色列國防軍士兵涉嫌在選舉日從軍隊基地偷走武器 他當時冒充一名軍官,因此索要武器沒有問題。 以色列國防軍一名士兵涉嫌在選舉日從傘兵旅的訓練基地偷走武器,然後將被盜的武器賣給巴勒斯坦人,目前正在接受調查。他成功地冒充了一名軍官。 週二下午,當他走近基地的大門時,並未適當要求士兵提供身份證明,使他得以越過第一個檢查站進入基地,因為據稱他假裝是軍官。 然後,他在未能進入其中一幢建築物後在基地周圍徘徊。 最終他找到了一個生病的士兵,要求他交出武器進行檢查,並說他將在完成後將其歸還。 他當時冒充一名軍官,因此以這種方式獲得武器沒有任何麻煩。 握住武器後,便將其拆開,以便所有不同的部件都能放入背包中。然後他走出了基地。 整個操作在一小時內完成。 以色列對外關係和國防委員會在一月下旬宣布,在2020年全年,以色列國防軍共竊取了80支槍支。作為響應,檢查次數有所增加。 IDF soldier suspected of stealing weapons from army base on Election Day He had no trouble demanding the weapons, as he was impersonating an officer at the time. By MAARIV ONLINE MARCH 24, 2021 22:50 An IDF soldier is being investigated for allegedly stealing weapons from a Paratroopers Brigade training base on Election Day, and then selling the stolen weapons to a Palestinian. He succeeded by impersonating an officer. When he approached the main gate of the base on Tuesday afternoon, the soldier wasn't properly asked for identification, granting him access past the first checkpoint and into the base as he allegedly pretended to be an officer. Then, he wandered around the base, after failing to enter one of the buildings. He eventually found a soldier who was sick, demanding that he hand over his weapons for inspection, saying that he will return it as soon as he is done. He had no trouble getting the weapons this way, as he was impersonating an officer at the time. Once he got hold of the weapon, he disassembled it so that all the different parts fit into his backpack. Then he walked out of the base. The whole operation was complete within an hour. In all of 2020, some 80 firearms were stolen from the IDF, the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee announced in late January. The number of inspections have increased in response. Jerusalem Post Staff contributed to this report. 儘管發生了疫情,軍火公司埃爾比特說2020年是成功的 Elbit僱用16,000名工人,其中包括以色列的12,000名工人。Elbit在以色列的工廠和辦事處從北部的特拉海分佈到南部的阿拉德和斯德洛特。 儘管全球疫情嚴重打擊了全球經濟以及以色列當地經濟,但Elbit Systems表示,到2020年末,其收入比上一年更高。 在周三發布的一份報告中,該公司表示,2020年的收入為46.62億美元,相比之下,該數字為4.508b美元。在2019年。 該公司表示,其2020年的淨收入為740萬美元,而同期為620萬美元。在2019年。 Elbit僱用16,000名工人,其中包括以色列的12,000名工人。Elbit在以色列的工廠和辦事處從北部的特拉海(Tel Hai)分佈到南部的阿拉德(Arad)和斯德洛特(Sderot)。根據公司統計,該公司約20%的銷售額是在以色列生產的,其餘80%是在國外生產的。 該公司在報告中稱,未完成訂單為110億美元,收入為4.7億美元,非GAAP淨收入為3.185億美元。GAAP淨收入為2.377億美元。(GAAP代表公認會計原則。) Elbit的總裁兼首席執行官Bezhalel“ Butzi” Machlis在接受《耶路撒冷郵報》採訪時說,在艱難的一年裡,該公司設法維持甚至改善了業務,在這艱難的一年中,出國旅行幾乎是不可能的,這主要有兩個原因:廣泛的投資組合,該公司在廣泛的安全領域提供服務,並且該公司在全球擁有數十家子公司,這些子公司可以用自己的語言和所在國家/地區接觸客戶。 Machlis說,Elbit通過公司的子公司設法克服了與冠狀病毒有關的障礙。 他說:“我們在全球的數十家子公司基本上都是本地公司。” “我們在美國有數千名工人,在英國有數百名工人,在澳大利亞有許多人。公司的首席執行官是當地人,在當地社區受到尊重。與這些全球客戶的所有對話都可以通過這些子公司繼續進行。 Machlis說:“由於各國(過去一年)投資於其安全系統的意願,[Elbit與國外聯繫的趨勢有所增加。” “過去一年中,環遊世界時Elbit的這種能力得到了證明。” 關於廣泛的產品組合,Machlis表示,該公司專業領域廣泛,例如航空電子,無線電和通信系統,主動保護,電光,制導彈藥以及最近的海軍能力,這使其能夠保持與時俱進並不斷發展它的收入。 他說:“一方面,我們的戰略是擁有先進的,廣泛的產品組合,另一方面,我們可以與本地公司合作,後者可以提供本地解決方案。” 展望未來,Machlis表示,積壓的訂單數量為該公司提供了未來發展和增長的選擇。 他說:“我們的增長潛力很大,該公司處於繼續發展的安全軌道上。” Despite corona, Elbit says 2020 was successful Elbit employs 16,000 workers, including about 12,000 in Israel. Elbit’s factories and offices in Israel are spread out from Tel Hai in the North to Arad and Sderot in the South. By UDI SHAHAM MARCH 24, 2021 19:14 Despite the worldwide pandemic that has severely hit the global economy – as well as the Israeli local economy – Elbit Systems said it finished 2020 with higher revenues than the previous year. In a report it published on Wednesday, the company said that revenues for 2020 were $4.662 billion, as compared to $4.508b. in 2019. It said that its net income was $7.4 million in 2020, as compared to $6.2m. in 2019. Elbit employs 16,000 workers, including about 12,000 in Israel. Elbit’s factories and offices in Israel are spread from Tel Hai in the North to Arad and Sderot in the South. According to company stats, some 20% of its sales are made in Israel, and the remaining 80% are done abroad. In the report, the company said that its backlog of orders is $11b., revenues are at $4.7b., non-GAAP net income is $318.5m. and GAAP net income is $237.7m. (GAAP stands for Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.) Elbit’s president and CEO Bezhalel “Butzi” Machlis told The Jerusalem Post in an interview that the company managed to maintain and even improve its business during this rough year, in which traveling abroad was almost impossible, due to two main reasons: a broad portfolio, which provides services in a wide range of security fields, and the fact that the company has dozens of subsidiaries around the world, which can reach clients in their own language and in their own country. Machlis said that Elbit managed to overcome the coronavirus-related obstacles through the company’s subsidiaries. “Our dozens of subsidiaries across the globe are essentially local companies,” he said. “We have thousands of workers in the US, hundreds in the UK, and [many in] Australia. The CEOs of the companies are local people, who are respected in their communities. All of the dialogue with our clients around the world could continue through these subsidiaries. “This trend [of Elbit’s contact with foreign countries] was increased due to the will of countries to invest in their security system [in the past year],” Machlis said. “This ability of Elbit was proven in the past year when traveling around the world dropped.” Regarding the wide portfolio, Machlis said the fact that the company specializes in a wide range of fields, such as avionics, radio and communications systems, active protection, electro-optics, guided munitions and recently also naval abilities enabled it to stay relevant and increase its revenues. “Our strategy is to have an advanced, wide, portfolio, on the one hand, and with local companies, which could provide local solutions, on the other,” he said. Looking forward, Machlis said that the number of backlog orders provides the company with the option to advance and grow in the future. “Our growth potential is big, and the company is on the safe track of continuing to grow and develop,” he said. 伊斯雷爾·貝特努(Yisrael Beytenu)黨領袖一直在敦促總理本傑明·內塔尼亞胡(Benjamin Netanyahu)反對派中的其他黨領袖利用他們的明顯多數(包括仍在柵欄上的拉姆)“接管以色列議會”並通過一項取消選舉資格的法律據《 Maariv日報》報導,內塔尼亞胡和其他刑事被告組成了政府。 據未公開的報告稱,儘管只獲得了88%的選票,利伯曼估計剩餘的選票不會使支持內塔尼亞胡的集團超過目前的59名議員。 它說,利比曼已經與反內塔尼亞胡集團的許多高級成員進行了交談,並告訴他們:“我們必須取代議會發言人,控制議會安排委員會,財務委員會以及外交事務和國防委員會。” 他說,即使各方之間的分歧可能導致不可能組成一個聯盟,他們也可以合作通過法律,例如取消內塔尼亞胡資格的法律。 聯合名單負責人艾曼·奧德(Ayman Odeh)看到他的政黨在低投票率中失去了支持,他指責一個事實,即其中一個組成派系剝奪了為表現欠佳而單打獨鬥的事實。 Ynet引述他的話說:“收穫很明顯,當我們團結時,我們變得更強大,而當我們分裂時,我們變得更弱。” 聯合名單預計將僅獲得六個席位,而分拆後的拉姆將贏得四個或五個席位。在上次選舉中,聯合的聯合名單在空前的投票率下贏得了創紀錄的15個席位。 “我們試圖保持團結,但沒有成功。儘管如此,我祝賀拉姆和聯合名單,我們必須尊重結果。我們都是種族主義和歧視的受害者。” 利庫德說,向薩爾求助,無濟於事 幾家希伯來語媒體報導說,利庫德河已向新希望及其領導人吉迪恩·薩爾(Gideon Sa'ar)提出了一些建議,以商討加入聯合政府的可能性。 據報導,新希望黨(New Hope)拒絕了這一提議。新希望黨主要由黨領袖本傑明·內塔尼亞胡(Benjamin Netanyahu)關閉的前利庫德集團支持者組成。 在星期二的投票中,新希望的表現低於預期,僅贏得了六個以色列議會席位,其中大約90%的選票都得到了計數。 當天早些時候,利庫德州部長埃利·科恩(Eli Cohen)表示,利庫德州將競標說服《新希望》和《藍白兩色》重返市場。 薩爾誓言不加入內塔尼亞胡領導的聯盟。 海灣警告說,讓卡漢主義者加入聯盟將使正常化沉淪 坎報導,波斯灣地區的官員警告以色列不要允許極端的反阿拉伯分子,例如伊塔馬爾·本·格維爾(Itamar Ben Gvir)進入政府。 一位海灣消息人士對以色列外交官說:“右翼立場是一回事,但是被認為是執政聯盟一部分的MK的反阿拉伯和反穆斯林言論將損害和破壞正常化努力。” 瓦拉報導說,利庫德族官員與拉姆黨首長曼蘇爾·阿巴斯接觸,以加入他的努力,以通過立法,取消本傑明·內塔尼亞胡從所謂的反內塔尼亞胡集團的新任MK計劃中擔任總理的資格。 根據援引“政治消息來源”的報告,阿巴斯告訴他們,他不贊成針對特定個人的法律,但是該黨在此問題上的立場尚未最終確定。 利庫德(Likud)否認該報告,稱其為“全部謊言”。 在訪問第12頻道的新聞時,阿巴斯對他是否會支持內塔尼亞胡還是耶什·阿迪德領導人耶爾·拉皮德(Yair Lapid)持謹慎態度,表示他一直保持選擇立場。 在利庫德內部,與伊斯蘭黨合作的可能性激起了人們的熱情。 利庫德MK的前聯盟負責人戴維·比坦(David Bitan)告訴坎恩,引入拉姆作為聯盟夥伴“不會造成傷害”。 該黨有五個席位供拉姆使用,被認為是支持內塔尼亞胡集團和反對內塔尼亞胡集團的關鍵力量。 以色列議會議員共同努力,選拔總統,取代議長 第12頻道的新聞報導說,反對本傑明·內塔尼亞胡總理的大多數以色列議會成員已經在努力,即使沒有同意組建政府,也要共同開展多項舉措。 其中主要負責人是任命一位新的以色列議會議長,以取代利庫德的雅里夫·萊文,為立法工作奠定基礎,該立法將使被起訴者喪失擔任總理的資格。 MK還將嘗試就新總統的選票達成協議,新總統定於七月取代魯文·里夫林。儘管該角色主要是儀式性的,但總統的任務是在選舉後任命一名黨首以組建政府。如果以色列確實在夏季進行第五次選舉,則該職位將發揮關鍵作用。
