Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatars Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the grassroots level.
I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics, Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Muslim Brotherhood leader denounces Morsi-brokered Gaza peace deal between Israel and Hama

Cairo - A top leader of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has denounced peace efforts with Israel and urged to wage a holy war to liberate Palestinian territories.

The leader Mohammed Badie blasted the government for peace efforts one day after the country’s President Mohammad Morsi, who hails from the movement, mediated a cease-fire between Israelis and Palestinians to end eight days of fierce fighting.

“The enemy knows nothing but the language of force,” Mohammed Badie said.

“Be aware of the game of grand deception with which they depict peace accords,” he said in a statement carried on the group's website and emailed to reporters.

According to Fox News, his statement was a sharp deviation from the role played by Morsi in the last week.

Egypt's role in brokering the deal has been hailed by U.S. officials.

Badie declared that ‘jihad is obligatory’ for Muslims, but he also said that taking up arms would be the ‘last stage’, only after Muslims achieved unity.

"The use of force and arms while the group is fragmented and disconnected, unorganized, weak in conviction, with faint faith - this will be destined for death,’ he said.

In the meantime, he called on Muslims to ‘back your brothers in Palestine. Supply them with what they need, seek victory for them in all international arenas’, the report said.

Badie’s title, General Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, also implies a leadership role in the Islamist group's sister movements across the world.

Under the deal, Gaza’s ruling Hamas is to stop rocket fire into Israel, while Israel is to cease attacks and allow the opening of the strip's long-blockaded borders, the report added.
