Israel to approve thousands of unauthorized West Bank settler homes

Israel to approve thousands of unauthorized West Bank settler homes Israel is to authorize thousands of the settler homes built illegally in the occupied West Bank, some of them decades ago, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday. The move is likely to please pro-settler members of Netanyahu's right-wing coalition while angering Palestinians, who want the West Bank as part of a future state. "Arranging the rights for the homes allows thousands of residents to be provided with infrastructure of public buildings, educational and religious buildings," Netanyahu's office said in a statement.


Christmas Day restaurant bookings are on the rise – but would you swap a home-cooked lunch for dining out?

Christmas Day restaurant bookings are on the rise – but would you swap a home-cooked lunch for dining out? Would you choose a restaurant for the Christmas Day meal just to avoid the inevitable mountain of washing up? Or is there nothing that can tempt you away from lunch at home and your own perfectly crisp roast potatoes? For an increasing number of us it's the former that most appeals, according to a recent OpenTable survey which showed that restaurant bookings on Christmas Day have risen by 240 per cent in the last five years. Between 2016 and 2017, reservations jumped by 14 per cent, and they are expected to increase again this Christmas. British cuisine is the most popular choice for a meal out, with 19 per cent of people heading out for traditional roast turkey with all the trimmings, but Italian restaurants are also a firm favourite for Christmas Day, counting for 12 per cent of bookings. For many Telegraph readers the choice to eat out is a simple one when faced with the prospect of cooking for a crowd (or, indeed, spending more time than is necessary with certain members of the extended family), as it takes the stress out of prepping the food as well as the clearing up afterwards.  “My family have gone out for Christmas Day dinner for the last few years," says Natalie Richardson, from Leeds. "It reduces the hassle of ordering ingredients and the hours spent preparing the food, giving us more time to enjoy the day,” she explains. “We often go to a local pub which does three-course offer. Once, we went to our local curry house and had chicken korma for Christmas dinner.” Electing to gather at a restaurant also means that the cook of the house isn't left out of the celebrations. "For me, it means no stressing in the kitchen while everyone else gets to relax, chat and enjoy a drink," says Abigail Theodosiou, from Sanderstead in Croydon. "We tend to have a lovely easy breakfast (Waitrose frozen croissants and scrambled eggs), get ready, go out, and then head home as soon as the meal is finished to relax in a tidy(ish!) house and open our presents, followed by cheese and chocolates." Theodosiou is one of a number who choose a country-style pub over a restaurant; "with lovely big fires, they're cosier." And there's no doubt that it takes the pressure off catering for different dietary requirements. "With a mix of meat-eaters and vegetarians, we can order whatever we like." At a glance | The top cuisines booked for Christmas Day dining last year But for The Telegraph’s award-winning cookery writer Diana Henry, to book a table out is to lose something of the essential spirit of Christmas. “I’ve only been out for Christmas lunch once – when my parents had builders in, so the kitchen was out of action – and it was a disaster. The entire family just muttered about how much better it was at home. I think something is really missing in restaurants – you have to be quieter, so you can’t have that unbuttoned bonhomie and largesse that is part of Christmas." The cost of eating out might be another reason to host at home, she reasons. “You can open another bottle of wine without considering how big a bill you’re racking up; you can have seconds; you can tell risqué jokes. Things are just a little more sedate in a restaurant. Plus, no matter where you go outside the home, a Christmas dinner will always taste kind of institutional away from it. Roast potatoes that have been hanging round for an hour or more just don’t cut it." Get cooking | Diana Henry’s latest recipes Telegraph food writer Xanthe Clay agrees, and suggests the chief cook of the house simply enlists helpers for the washing up, to minimise the pressure. “Eating out is a great option if you find the whole meal a massive stress fest, but don’t kid yourself that it’ll be the same as hanging out at the family table," she says. "Few restaurants offer second helpings, and if you want a sofa to stagger to after lunch, you may need to book a table at a hotel with a decent lounge area. Prices will, quite properly, be inflated – the staff will need a hefty bonus to justify coming in to work." For many people, having the whole family descend on the house for an unending supply of food and drink is simply unthinkable – especially if space is tight. "I love going to parties but I wouldn't want to host one myself," says the award-winning travel blogger Sofie Couwenbergh. "My home is my safe space, plus it's far too small!" It's always worth checking before splashing out, says Xanthe Clay. “If you are booking the big dinner out to give the cook a rest, do check it’s actually what they want – not just a way to alleviate your own guilt for not manning the kitchen yourself. They may complain, but lots of home cooks actually love the opportunity for a bit of culinary muscle flexing. Bear in mind that their Christmas wish may be as simple as appreciation in ladlefuls, and all the washing up done well into the New Year.” Ultimately, it depends on the nature of the gathering, says Diana Henry. “In a restaurant you don’t get those golden moments when the entire family gather round the oven looking at the turkey saying ‘Do you think it’s cooked yet?’. The whole meal is an event that you all take part in.” Should you still prefer the idea of rocking up to a reservation, heading off on a walk and coming home to a kitchen that doesn’t look like the scene of a crime, here are some of our favourite restaurants across the country taking bookings for Christmas Day itself...

China's Early Gestures Alone Won't Settle Trade War, Ross Says

China's Early Gestures Alone Won't Settle Trade War, Ross Says Markets have jumped on signs that China may offer some of the concessions that the U.S. is seeking in trade negotiations, such as removing retaliatory tariffs on U.S. autos and considering plans to scale back its strategy for technology domination. President Donald Trump and China’s Xi Jinping during a Dec. 1 meeting in Argentina agreed on a 90-day delay in imposing news tariffs while they try and work out a deal. “They’ve started to make some very early stage, very preliminary, but very welcome moves,” Ross said in an interview on Bloomberg TV on Thursday.

Brexit Reversal More Likely After May's Confidence Vote: Goldman

Brexit Reversal More Likely After May's Confidence Vote: Goldman Prime Minister Theresa May enjoyed a Pyrrhic victory last night, surviving an attempt by her own party to oust her. Goldman said the party’s eurosceptic faction “holds much less sway across Parliament at large than its influence within the Conservative Party would suggest.” If the Prime Minister were to lose the vote on her tweaked Brexit deal, any subsequent legislation would likely reflect the preferences of a cross-party coalition of MPs looking for closer institutional ties, rather than those of Tory backbenchers advocating a more speedy EU departure. While Conservative MPs may have shied away from removing May, it doesn’t mean that her Brexit deal will succeed, as the Prime Minister struggles to secure a better withdrawal agreement.

Huawei's Washington Presence Dwindles Amid Legal Brawl With U.S.

Huawei's Washington Presence Dwindles Amid Legal Brawl With U.S. The company now keeps a three-person skeleton staff at its office on 15th Street, a few blocks from the White House, according to a person familiar with its operations. Huawei depleted its ranks in the nation’s capital months before facing what could be the legal fight of its life: a U.S. extradition request to Canada, which on Dec. 1 arrested Huawei’s finance chief over charges she conspired to evade sanctions against Iran. As the legal brawl risked spilling over into efforts by the U.S. and China to ease their trade tensions, President Donald Trump suggested Tuesday in an interview with Reuters that he’d intervene in the case if he thought it would help him get a trade deal with China.


Woman slams social media firms for baby ads after stillbirth

Woman slams social media firms for baby ads after stillbirth A woman whose child was stillborn has slammed the targeted advertising of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram after she returned home from the hospital and kept getting baby-related sales pitches. Gillian Brockell, a journalist with The Washington Post, said that if those social media giants were clever enough to know she was pregnant they should also have figured out she'd lost the baby. "I know you knew I was pregnant," Brockell wrote to the companies in a letter posted Wednesday on The Washington Post and Twitter.

Japan has followed in the footsteps of other countries in scrutinising the dominant role played by the world's largest information technology companies, including Big Four tech firms Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon. Despite bringing benefits, tech giants "tend to monopolise the market through their features such as... low costs and economies of scale," the report said.

Chinese state media urges Canada to defy U.S., free Huawei exec

Chinese state media urges Canada to defy U.S., free Huawei exec SHANGHAI/BEIJING (Reuters) - Canada should distance itself from U.S. "hegemonism" and grant unconditional freedom to Meng Wanzhou, a top executive of China's Huawei detained in Vancouver on Washington's request, state-owned tabloid Global Times said in a Thursday editorial. Meng, the chief financial officer of Huawei Technologies, has been accused by U.S. prosecutors of misleading banks about transactions linked to Iran, putting the banks at risk of violating sanctions. The United States needs to make a formal extradition request within 60 days of her arrest, which a Canadian judge will weigh to determine whether the case against Meng is strong enough.
