Jordan’s King Abdullah II on Tuesday formally launched an international research centre whose members include experts from around the world including arch-rivals Iran and Israel.

The International Centre for Synchrotron-Light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East, known by the acronym SESAME, “is the first research centre of its kind in the region,” said the royal court.

SESAME council president Chris Llewellyn Smith said the centre, located in Balqa province just northwest of Amman, was “the fulfilment of many hopes and dreams”.

“The opening is an occasion to look forward to the science that SESAME will produce, using photons provided by what will soon be the world’s first accelerator powered solely by renewable energy.”

SESAME was set up on the model of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) — Europe’s top physics laboratory — and construction work on the $100 million centre started in 2003.

It was developed under the auspices of UNESCO and officially came into existence in April 2004.

Jordan was chosen from among five countries for the project, which was funded mostly by the member countries and the European Union.

The project’s website says that SESAME is a “third-generation” synchrotron light source aimed at promoting “scientific and technological excellence in the Middle East”.

Its mission is to “prevent or reverse the brain drain by enabling world-class scientific research in subjects ranging from biology, archaeology and medical sciences.”

SESAME also seeks to “build scientific and cultural bridges between diverse societies, and contribute to a culture of peace through international cooperation in science,” the website says.

Among the project’s members are arch-rivals Israel and Iran, in addition to Cyprus, Egypt, Jordan, Pakistan, Turkey and the Palestinian Authority.

Despite their deep hostilities, experts from Israel and Iran have served two-year terms as vice presidents of the SESAME council.

In 2010, one Iranian member of SESAME, Majid Shahriari, was killed in Tehran, with Iran accusing Israel of assassinating the nuclear scientist.

Seyed Mahmoud Reza Aghamiri served as vice president from December 2011 to May 2014 when Eliezer Rabinovici, a physics professor at Jerusalem’s Hebrew University, replaced him.

Members Cyprus and Turkey also do not have diplomatic relations, like Iran and Israel.

The centre also has 17 observers, who have an advisory role and include the European Union, China and the United States.

The Jordanian king was given a tour of the facility on Tuesday and was briefed on the technology used there, the royal court said in a statement.

Synchrotron uses a high-resolution X-ray to delve below the surface and identify minute details.

The centre has three accelerators that can propel electrons up to 2.5 billion electron volts.

“In building SESAME we had to overcome major financial, technological and political challenges,” SESAME director Khaled Toukan said.

Egypt’s revenue from the Suez Canal was $853.7 million in April and March, 4.1 percent higher than the same period a year earlier, the Suez Canal Authority said in a statement on Wednesday.

The statement did not give a breakdown for April but Suez Canal Authority Chairman Mohab Mameesh said on March 31 that revenues came to $423.9 million in March.

Officials from the authority were not available for comment.

The canal is the fastest shipping route between Europe and Asia and one of the Egyptian government’s main sources of foreign currency.

Egypt has been struggling to revive its economy since a 2011 uprising scared away many tourists and foreign investors, key sources of hard currency.

Algeria to Invite Bids to Build Three Solar Power Plants – Minister

Algeria plans to invite bids for construction of three photovoltaic solar power plants with total capacity of about 4,000 megawatts (MW), and several energy and financial firms are already interested, the energy ministry said.

Algeria, member of the Organization for the Petroleum Exporting Countries, has been exploring renewable energy as a way to meet growing demand for electricity, while also freeing up more natural gas for export.

Energy Minister Nouredine Bouterfa said in a statement late on Thursday the ministry would issue tenders for the three projects, without giving a specific timeline.

The three plants would help meet Algeria’s domestic demand for power and allow for exports of power to neighbouring countries, a source at the Energy Ministry told Reuters.

Several financial institutions, including the French Agency for Development and the African Bank for Development, have shown interest in funding the project, according to the Energy Ministry, calling it a “multi-billion dollar” project.

Sonatrach, Algeria’s giant state oil and gas firm, would fund about 50 percent of the cost of the three plants, a Sonatrach official said.

Last year, Italy’s ENI signed a deal with Sonatrach to develop renewable projects in Algeria.

U.S. firm General Electric had also shown interest in the solar plants with planned capacity of 4,000 MW, the Energy Ministry sources said.

Hit by a crash in revenues due to lower global oil prices, Algeria has been doubling efforts to increase gas exports after several years of stagnant production. Several new gas fields have come on stream in the past year.

Dubai Completes Solar Plant to Power 50,000 Homes

dubai_solar_park

Second phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum Solar Park includes 2.3m solar panels

Dubai on Monday completed a solar plant big enough to power 50,000 homes as part of a plan to generate three-quarters of its energy from renewables by 2050.

The 200 megawatt plant sprawls over 4.5 square kilometres (1.73 square miles) of desert and includes some 2.3 million photovoltaic panels.

It is the second phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum Solar Park, which is set to pump out a total of 1,000 megawatts by 2020, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority said.

The $326 million second phase was built by a consortium including Saudi Arabia’s ACWA Power and Spain’s TSK.

DEWA chief Saeed al-Tayer said the operators would sell power to the public utility company.

The project is the “largest and first solar power project of its kind in the region”, he said.

“The state has begun early in preparing to say goodbye to the last drop of oil, through a clear strategy including investments in power generation plants that use various solar power technologies,” Tayer said.

The solar park’s first phase came online in 2013, with 152,000 panels producing 13 megawatts.

DEWA said in December the second phase of the project had set a world record for cheap solar energy, at 5.6 US cents (5.2 euro cents) per kilowatt hour.

Last year, DEWA awarded the third and final phase of the project, an 800 megawatt extension to the park, to a consortium led by Abu Dhabi’s Masdar.

The Gulf emirate currently has a total generating capacity of 10,200 megawatts, Tayer said.

Dubai is part of the oil-rich United Arab Emirates, but has few oil reserves itself.

The bulk of crude production is concentrated in Abu Dhabi.

MENA Region Has More Than 5.7 Gigawatts Solar In Pipeline

photodune-huge-washbasin-qatar

Middle East and North Africa remains hotbed of solar power development with more than 5,700 megawatts of capacity under development.

The Middle East Solar Industry Association (MESIA) recently reported that eight countries in the region have more than 4,050 megawatts of solar photovoltaic power capacity under development. Adding concentration solar power capacity increases the pipeline to 5,700 megawatts.

MESIA notes that 885 megawatts capacity is currently operational across the region. 3,618 megawatts capacity is under construction. Projects being executed in Morocco, Egypt and United Arab Emirates  (UAE) likely contribute the most in this segment.

Morocco has several solar power projects operational at its Noor-Ouarzazate complex. In the UAE, 100 megawatts Shams-1 CSP project is operational and remains the largest project in the country. Construction on 200 megawatts solar PV capacity at Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park is at full swing while construction on another 800 megawatts at the same park is expected to begin soon. A 350 megawatts solar PV project was awarded in Abu Dhabi; the project will be expanded to 1,200 megawatts in the near future.

Construction of 1,800 megawatts solar PV capacity is underway at Aswan, Egypt. Agreements by several foreign companies have been signed already.

Jordan is seeing increased activity in the solar power market with several projects under construction. The government there is planning to launch more tenders soon.

Smaller countries like Oman and Kuwait are also planning large-scale solar power projects.

The new entrant in the region’s solar power market will be Saudi Arabia. The country has announced plans to issue tender for 300 megawatts of solar power capacity soon.

Israeli Minister Advances Plan To Take in Syrian War Orphans

Israel’s interior minister has approved a plan to take in 100 Syrian children orphaned by the civil war.

Barak Seri, a spokesman for Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, confirmed the plan Thursday. If carried out, it would be the first time Israel absorbs refugees from the ongoing war.

According to the plan, first reported by Israel’s Channel 10, Israel would initially house the orphans in boarding schools, and would seek Arab families in Israel to adopt them. The orphans would eventually receive permanent citizenship, and first-degree relatives would be allowed to join them in Israel.

Israel has treated thousands of Syrians wounded in the war, offering them medical treatment in hospitals in Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said last month he wanted to expand the medical assistance.

Istanbul Bookshop That Transports Young Syrians Back Home

Tucked in a corner across from Istanbul’s Kariye museum is a haven for young Syrians who want to do one simple thing: read. Pages, a bookstore and cafe, represents one man’s ambitious quest to change the lives of Syrian youth.

“I’m incredibly happy,” said Samer al-Kadri, 42, founder of the first Arabic bookstore in the city. “I get to meet this generation, between 18 and 25 years old. This generation is surprising me with their understanding, their openness, their dialogue.”

More than three million refugees, the vast majority of them Syrian, live in Turkey. With Pages, Kadri hopes to create a space for young Syrians curious about the world, who want to escape the isolation of refugee life, and, for a fleeting moment, pretend they are back in their homeland.

The tunes of the Lebanese singer Fairuz waft through the air of the cosy interior, books lined along shelves that Kadri built with his own hands, a labour of love that has meant he hasn’t taken a holiday for nearly a year.

Here young children can come and read all the books available for free, or borrow as many as they want, for as little as 20 lire (£4.80) a month. Syrian men and women drink coffee as they write, study and read under the sunlight streaming through the windows, and in the evenings they attend music performances, movie nights, workshops and exhibits.

“It’s a place where we can have conversations as Syrians with each other once again, to have dialogue, to accept each other, to change our mentality that was closed in on Syria only, and didn’t see the outside world,” said Kadri.

For all the tragedies of the Syrian war, with more than 400,000 dead in five years of conflict and half the country’s population displaced at home or abroad, Kadri sees a small silver lining.

“Despite all the tragedy in Syria, there was one aspect that I think is positive for Syria’s future,” he said. “It let Syrians emerge from this shell that they were living in. A lot of things changed. A lot of young men and women have changed their way of thinking, and this new generation, some of it has been destroyed and some have been changed or are growing up in a different way, more open. Syrians have learned a lot more about the world.”

Kadri was just eight when the forces of Hafez al-Assad, the father of Syria’s current president, stormed his home city of Hama in 1982, levelling it with extraordinary brutality in less than a month as collective punishment for a brief rebellion.

He recalled an episode where government troops lined several men in a neighbourhood against a wall, shooting one and letting another survive, and the scene as his family trudged out of the city, with bodies lining the streets.

After moving to Damascus, Kadri graduated with a fine arts degree and became a graphic designer, setting up an advertising agency and a publishing house dedicated to children’s books, called Bright Fingers.

When the revolution erupted in Syria in 2011, he spoke abroad about the people’s struggle and their oppression by the Assad regime, though he stayed away from demonstrations.

While on a trip to Abu Dhabi in 2012, he learned that security forces had raided his publishing house, accusing him of supporting terrorist activities, a common charge against those opposed to the government. He moved to Amman, and fell in love with Istanbul during a short visit to the city.

During the Guardian’s visit, he was interrupted by a group of young children who had been touring the bookstore. “We made this place for you,” he told them. “It’s a place that you can always come to.”

One of the children replied: “I felt like I was in Syria with all these Arabic books, and you can read them all for free.” One teenager asked Kadri to stock books about astronomy because he loved space, and another asked for a biography of Khalid ibn al-Walid, one of early Islam’s legendary warriors who led its early conquests in Asia.

“The purpose of this visit is so they can read and to impress on them the importance of libraries,” said Jihad Bakr, who teaches Turkish to Syrian children at a local school and was supervising the visit. “They need to know a different face of the society, to see their own Syrian community from a different perspective. Syria is not just war and what their families know. We have art and culture.”

It is a common theme for Kadri, who sees little hope in changing the mentality of his own generation but believes there is potential for instilling a love of learning and curiosity among the young clientele who visit Pages, where he works 11 hours a day for seven days a week.

He also sees it as a way of removing those who sought refuge in Istanbul from the isolation of refugee life, to introduce Turks to a different perspective on Syrians (many Turks and Kurds also visit the bookshop, which stocks Turkish and English books) and to show the international media that Syrians should not be defined just as victims or perpetrators of violence.

“I’m tired of this view that Syrians are Daesh [an Arabic term for Isis], are murderers, or are just starving,” he said. “There are a lot of victims and people who are starving, who have lost everything. But there’s also another side that people don’t want to see. We want people to write about something different.”

Among the most popular books at Pages are translations of Elif Şafak’s novel The Forty Rules of Love, which tells the story of the legendary Persian poet Rumi, as well The Shell, a memoir by the Syrian writer Mustafa Khalifa detailing his torture and detention in the notorious prison of Palmyra.

The translated works of George Orwell are also popular, particularly Animal Farm and 1984, the dystopian fictional worlds of which bear a striking resemblance to Assad’s police state.

“In the end this is a huge tragedy and you can’t really escape it completely,” said Kadri. “You can’t write about love without linking it to the catastrophe in Syria. It’s your daily life and occupies every moment of it.”

Kadri is hoping to start a branch of his bookstore in Berlin to cater to the refugee community there, and is setting up a new publishing house that will be dedicated to debut novels by young Syrian and Arab writers to be sold throughout the Middle East, and he is working with Turkish publishing houses to translate the novels into the local language. None of the ventures are profitable.

But though it is hard work, what matters to him more is the effort to mould a new generation. “We are not able to change, but we can help the next generation change for the better,” he said. “My message to the world is don’t judge Syrians as one bloc. You wouldn’t want us to judge an entire society as one. Look and observe well, and determine the reality for yourself.”

Saudi Arabia Launches Campaign to Collect Funds for Syrians Displaced by War

Saudi Arabia has launched a fundraising campaign for Syrians displaced by a five-year civil war, including those evacuated from eastern Aleppo, state news agency SPA reported on Monday.

More than 11 million Syrians – around half of the population – have been displaced by the fighting, which began in 2011 and has killed more than 300,000 people.

Saudi Arabia has been one of the main supporters of rebels fighting to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whom Riyadh regards as a tool of regional arch-rival Iran.

Thousands of Syrian fighters and civilians have been evacuated from eastern Aleppo in a week-long operation this month after government forces backed by Russia and Iran closed in on their stronghold. Many of them are staying in temporary shelters in freezing temperatures.

SPA reported that King Salman bin Abdulaziz had ordered a relief campaign to be started on Tuesday and had allocated 100 million riyals ($27 million) to the drive.

“The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, has ordered a popular campaign to be launched … to provide relief for the brotherly Syrian people,” SPA said.

The agency said the funds would be used to set up a camp for refugees and to provide food, medicines and blankets for displaced Syrians. It did not say where the camp would be located.

The agency said King Salman also donated 20 million riyals of his own money to the campaign, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef had donated 10 million, and Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had contributed 8 million.

Saudi Arabia has contributed to United Nations relief campaigns for Syria, including at fundraising meetings in Kuwait and elsewhere.

Gulf Markets Move Sideways In Early Trade

Gulf stock markets moved sideways in early trade on Monday with little fresh corporate news to spur buying, while uncertainty over oil prices also deterred some investors.

Saudi Arabia’s index was flat after 70 minutes of trade with most petrochemical companies little changed and the banking sector index edging down.

Real estate developer Jabal Omar gained 1.4 percent after saying it had ended a contract with builder Saudi Binladin Group, settling an outstanding 196 million riyal ($52.3 million) debt to Binladin by transferring to it ownership of units in a project.

Dubai’s index edged down 0.1 percent as Union Properties, the most heavily traded stock, pulled back 2.5 percent after leaping 11.4 percent on Sunday.

Abu Dhabi’s index dropped 0.6 percent as telecommunications blue chip Etisalat fell by the same amount, while Qatar edged down 0.3 percent as Qatar National Bank lost 0.5 percent.

Brent crude oil dropped 1.4 percent to below $47 a barrel in Asian trade on fears that producer countries meeting this week could fail to agree on a meaningful output cut.

Saudi Arabia’s energy minister, Khalid al-Falih, said on Sunday night that he believed the oil market would balance itself in 2017 even if producers did not intervene, and that keeping output at current levels could therefore be justified.

New Israeli Machine to Standardize Diamond Grading

460x-1

An Israeli high-tech company has invented a machine that it says can instantly grade the clarity of polished diamonds — a development the company said Thursday will bring new standards to a painstaking process that has long been susceptible to the subjectivity of appraisers.

Sarine Technologies Ltd. said its system, currently in advanced large-scale testing in India and expected to be marketed toward mid-2017, will revolutionize the global diamond industry by enhancing consumer trust in each diamond’s valuation.

The system will simplify the clarity grading process and provide accurate and objective mapping of the polished diamond, said chief executive and executive director Uzi Levami.

“Instead of a human looking at the diamond from various angles, maybe the light is not so good, maybe he drank too much coffee, so he is making a mistake,” he said. The machine can “make the final decision for the grade of the diamond,” he said.

He said diamond dealers still need to provide other services, such as determining a diamond’s authenticity. “So this will help people but not replace people,” he said.

Israel does not produce diamonds itself but is a leading polishing and trading center and was among the founders of the Kimberley Process — the global body responsible for ending the trade of “blood diamonds” that fund fighting across Africa. The Israel Diamond Institute claims to have the world’s largest diamond trading floor.

Roland Lorie, chief executive of the International Gemological Institute, a global diamond certification body, inspected the new machine on Thursday.

He said it could help the industry as a time saver, but expressed doubt that it could give an accurate grading because there are so many tiny details to analyze.

“You need the brain of a person to identify what is more, what is better to see, what do you prefer to see,” he said. “I think it will take a long, long time for a machine to be able to replace a human being.”

Sarine’s technologies are well known in the diamond industry and the company spends $10 million a year on research and development. Its “Galaxy” machine is widely used by manufacturers to measure the inclusions in rough diamonds.
