U.S. Deal With Taiwan Has China Retaliating

By KEITH BRADSHER
China announced an unusually broad series of retaliatory measures in response to the latest U.S. arms sales to Taiwan, including sanctions against some American companies.
Israel Conducts Retaliatory Airstrikes on Gaza Tunnels, Police Post
Israeli jets launched airstrikes against an empty Hamas police station in central Gaza and some seven smuggling tunnels near the Egypt-Gaza border town of Rafah, witnesses said Monday.

In a new signal of its status as a global economic power, China now appears ready to use market muscle to retaliate against critics of its policies. If it does, the first casualties could be French businesses.
For the past few days, angry crowds have been gathering outside Chinese outlets of French retail group Carrefour (CARR.PA) to protest France's efforts to use the Beijing Olympics to pressure China on human rights and Tibet. Carrefour, the global No. 2 retailer after Wal-Mart (WMT), vehemently denies any involvement in politics and says that so far the protests have had little effect on its Chinese business.
The New York Times and Washington Post lead with the Supreme Court ruling that federal civil rights laws that protect workers against discrimination also cover those who faced retaliation for complaining about bias in the workplace. The Los Angeles Times devotes its top nonlocal spot to the twin decisions that said workers, including federal employees, are protected from retaliation, even if the federal laws don't explicitly say so. The majority in the 7-2 and 6-3 decisions emphasized that the justices relied on Supreme Court precedent that had previously found an implied right to sue for retaliation. The decisions don't really change the broad outlines of employment law, but they were somewhat surprising coming from a Supreme Court that had been keeping itself busy by issuing a series of pro-business rulings and limiting the rights of workers.
