Second hour: Investigative reports: 21 year old Hong Kong democracy party founder Joshua Wong. Israel Threatens to Use Nuclear Weapons to ‘Wipe Out’ its Enemies. Standing next to a secretive Israeli atomic reactor earlier in the week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened to “wipe out” his enemies. In a speech that many will see as the Jewish state breaking its long silence over the possession of nuclear weapons, the Likud leader warned that it has the means to destroy its enemies.  At Dimona reactor, Netanyahu warns Israel's foes they risk ruin. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu used a visit to a secretive Israeli atomic reactor on Wednesday to warn the country's enemies that it has the means to destroy them, in what appeared to be a veiled... He said on Wednesday during a ceremony to rename the complex, near the desert town of Dimona: “Those who threaten to wipe us out put themselves in a similar danger, and in any event will not achieve their goal.” The site has long been suspected to be the location where Israel has been developing nuclear weapons. The ceremony was postponed several times as not to draw attention to Israel's nuclear capabilities amid the struggle against Iran's nuclear program. Iran hit back by describing Netanyahu as a “warmonger”.  The threat of “atomic annihilation” against the Islamic Republic was denounced as “beyond shameless in the gall”. Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on his official Twitter account: “Iran, a country without nuclear weapons, is threatened with atomic annihilation by a warmonger standing next to an actual nuclear weapons factory.” Pro-democracy political party Demosisto to shift focus away from seeking Hong Kong Legislative Council seats as it supports social movements. Group co-founded by Occupy movement leader Joshua Wong and disqualified lawmaker Nathan Law cites deprivation of its members’ ‘political rights’. Hong Kong’s youngest political party co-founded by student activist Joshua Wong Chi-fung has declared it will shift its focus from contesting elections to backing social movements, claiming officials have blocked its path to the city’s councils. The “declaration of transition” was issued on Friday at the party’s second anniversary dinner, attended by Wong, a leader of the pro-democracy Occupy movement of 2014,and Nathan Law Kwun-chung, a disqualified lawmaker who co-founded and recently led the organisation. “We considered Demosito a political party when we founded it, with participation in electoral politics an important direction,” the statement read. “After our members were being repeatedly deprived of their political rights, the road to election has clearly been suspended.” Law was elected to the Legislative Council two years ago, but was disqualified last year by the court over his improper oath-taking in October 2016. Demosisto put forward a candidate, its standing committee member Agnes Chow Ting, to try to retake Law’s seat in a special by-election. However, officials banned Chow from running on the grounds that Demosisto’s call for self-determination was “unconstitutional”. Law stepped down last week from his post as party chairman, while vice-chairwoman Tiffany Yuen Ka-wai quit the party – a move seen as a tactic to avoid the risk of being banned from standing in the district council elections next year. The new chairman, Ivan Lam Long-yin, said on Tuesday the party would not commit resources to waging election campaigns. We will adjust our focus towards civil society and devote our energy to policy advocacy. Conceding a difficult road ahead while claiming suppression by the government, Demosisto said it would continue to stand in the frontline of the city’s democracy movements. “In the future, we will adjust our focus towards civil society and devote our energy to policy advocacy,” the party said in its statement. “We will strive to connect with more Hongkongers in the coming battles and democracy movements.” It added that party members needed to prepare for what it called a key point of contention: a national security law.
