President Musharraf warns Bush NOT to enter Pakistan

"President Pervez Musharraf said in an interview published Friday that U.S. troops would be regarded as invaders if they crossed into Pakistan to hunt al-Qaida militants."

Satanic Verses ~ In Israel

"On the eve of U.S. President George W. Bush’s visit to Israel, a hardline member of Israel’s parliament is trying to drum up support for a new peace initiative - granting Jordanian passports to all Palestinians, dismantling the Palestinian Authority and abandoning any notions of an independent Palestinian state."

Bush: US Should Have Bombed Auschwitz

"US President George W. Bush rekindles the eternal flame commemorating the six million Jews killed by the Nazis in the Holocaust, in the Hall of Remembrance in the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem, Friday, Jan. 11, 2008. President Bush had tears in his eyes during an hour-long tour of Israel's Holocaust memorial Friday and told Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice that the U.S. should have bombed Auschwitz to halt the killing, the memorial's chairman said." (AP Photo/Oleg Popov, Pool)

Tears for the dead but none for the living... What can you make of a man like that? Apparently Bush places the lives of Jews above all others. Clearly, he couldn't care less about the innocent Palestinian men, women, and babies who are dying because of the continued siege of Gaza.

Note the number six million is still be used for the Jews who supposedly died during the so-called Holocaust. We KNOW the number is at least 2.5 million less ~ AT LEAST!

Kucinich seeks NH Dem vote recount

"Democrat Dennis Kucinich, who won less than 2 percent of the vote in the New Hampshire primary, said Thursday he wants a recount to ensure that all ballots in his party's contest were counted. The Ohio congressman cited "serious and credible reports, allegations and rumors" about the integrity of Tuesday results."

Ms. magazine refuses pro-Israel ad

"Ms. magazine rejected a pro-Israel advertisement from the American Jewish Congress. The ad highlights successful women in Israel. It shows photographs of three prominent Israelis -- Knesset Speaker Dalia Itzik, Foreign Affairs Minister Tzipi Livni and the president of the Supreme Court, Dorit Beinish -- above the words “This is Israel.”"

Hey, way-to-go Ms. Magazine. Have to ask the wife to subscribe...

For an Iran Policy, More Nixon, Less Bush

"President Bush's vague outlook has led to some memorable blunders. Iran's constructive role in rebuilding Afghanistan was answered by Bush's 2002 "axis of evil" label on the Islamic Republic. And the now famous 2003 Iranian memo, which offered the United States comprehensive talks on its nuclear program and support for anti-Israeli terror groups, was met with silence."

Hillary Plays a Risky 'Gender Card'

"Instead of an inspiring campaign between two trail-blazing politicians, the race could degenerate into a spasm of “identity politics” in which two groups – women and blacks – compete over who has been more unfairly repressed."

Bush prays in Bethlehem amid sea of barricades

US President George W. Bush(C) speaks with Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilis III(3rd R) while visiting the Church of the Nativity in the West Bank town of Bethlehem. (AFP/Jim Watson)

"Bethlehem's own mayor Victor Batarseh was not invited to the ceremony because he is a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), which the US State Department considers a terror organisation."

It's interesting how Christians (the lovers of Christ) places the security and interests of Jews (the haters of Christ) above the security and interests of their own. Even as he drives along the humiliating road-blocks and checkpoints, it probably never occurs to "Born Again Christan" Bush that his Christian brethren are also murdered, starved, and brutalized behind the apartheid wall. This is evidenced by the fact that the PFLP, a Christian organization is branded "terrorist" because it resists Israeli occupation.

Israelis - Bush bringing another Holocaust

"The rally was organized by the 'SOS Israel' under the banner of praying for a unified Jerusalem. Protestors read psalms and carried signs, several of which warned that Bush and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert were "bringing another Holocaust.""

FBI wiretap cut off for unpaid bill

"A telephone company cut off an FBI international wiretap after the agency failed to pay its bill on time, according to a U.S. government audit released on Thursday."

Official Version of Naval Incident Starts to Unravel

"Despite the official and media portrayal of the incident in the Strait of Hormuz early Monday morning as a serious threat to US ships from Iranian speedboats that nearly resulted in a "battle at sea," new information over the past three days suggests that the incident did not involve such a threat and that no US commander was on the verge of firing at the Iranian boats."

Why is it that whenever there is a "question of facts" these days, the US is the one "miss representing" those facts?

Iran, Again

" just doesn't make any sense for the Iranians to have done what they're accused of doing, and yet it does make perfect sense that an administration such as this one – which has been gunning for Tehran, lo these many months – would create an "incident" in the run-up to launching an attack."

Republicans leap to show resolve against Iran

Republican presidential hopefuls Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, right, shake hands following a Republican presidential debate in Myrtle Beach, S.C., Thursday, Jan. 10, 2008. (AP Photo/Mary Ann Chastain)

"Rep. Ron Paul, a staunch Iraq war opponent who has been unable to break into the top tier in opinion polls despite strong fund-raising, said he believed his presidential rivals were unnecessarily ratcheting up war rhetoric.

"I would certainly urge a lot more caution than I'm hearing here tonight," he said. "This incident should not be thrown out of proportion to the point where we're getting ready to attack Iran over this.""

A lone voice of reason in a sea of insanity...

U.S.: Voices on Recording May Not Have Been From Iranian Speedboats

"Just two days after the U.S. Navy released the eerie video of Iranian speedboats swarming around American warships, which featured a chilling threat in English, the Navy is saying that the voice on the tape could have come from the shore or from another ship."

Damn ~ our staged provocations are being revealed as staged provocations - Senior Busch Administration Saurce.

Actually, this incident is eerily similar to the events leading up to the US attack on Libya in 1986. The Israelis, through the use of a "Trojan", tricked the US into attacking Libya. The knowledge of the unjustified attacks on Libya and Iraq, both of which were heavily influenced and cheered by Israel, has probably stayed the US's hand in this situation. For those of you too young to be familiar with the Libyan attack or for the uninformed, see the below posting.

How the Mossad Tricked US into Bombing Libya

"By the end of March, the Americans were already intercepting messages broadcast by the Trojan, which was only activated during heavy communication traffic hours. Using the Trojan, the Mossad tried to make it appear that a long series of terrorist orders were being transmitted to various Libyan embassies around the world (or, as they were called by the Libyans, Peoples' Bureaus). As the Mossad had hoped, the transmissions were deciphered by the Americans and construed as ample proof that the Libyans were active sponsors of terrorism. What's more, the Americans pointed out, Mossad reports confirmed it."

CIA reveals: We said in 1974 that Israel had nuclear weapons

"The Central Intelligence Agency, backed by bodies including the State Department's Bureau of Intelligence and Research and the Defense Intelligence Agency, determined in August 1974 that Israel had nuclear "weapons in being," a "small number" of which it "produced and stockpiled.""

Bush calls for end of "occupation" of Arab lands

"President Bush called for a halt to Israel's military occupation of land the Palestinians claim for a state and an end to the terrorist threat over the Jewish homeland, spelling out the U.S. bottom line Thursday for ending the long and bloody Mideast conflict."

This is a perfect example of the bias that is so pervasive in US policy regarding Israel and Palestine. Notice that while Bush "finally" referred to the Israeli "occupation" as an "occupation" he continues to refer to Palestinian resistance as "terrorism." Is he insane? A rhetorical question ~ of course Bush is insane.

Bush is actually suggesting the Palestinians sit idly by while Israel continue to murder innocent men, women, and children with American F-18 fighter jets, helicopter gunships, and tanks; destroy their homes and farms; and, confiscate their land by building "Israeli only" super-highways and settlements.

If the "Americans" had not resisted, but instead offered to "peacefully co-exist" with their English neighbors when the "Red Coats" arrived, the US would still be an English colony. Yet, George Washington and his fellow "patriots" are consider American heros.

Iran airs video of navy stand-off

"Iranian state-run TV has broadcast video it says shows a controversial naval stand-off between Revolutionary Guards patrols and US warships."

Israel to deport Filipino mother of 4 year old girl

"A four-year old girl born to an Israeli father and to a Filipino mother scheduled for deportation from Israel will live with her mother in a Hadera detention center before she is deported, the Haifa District Court ruled Thursday."

Does anyone care to guess how this one is going to end up?

Divorce Extortion? Only in Israel

"Could it be the end of divorce extortion? The Knesset’s Constitution, Law and Justice Committee approved this week an amendment to Israeli law that would prevent ‘divorce-refusing’ husbands from financially extorting their wives."

'Ron Paul, US Eagle's second wing'

"Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich endorses Congressman Ron Paul, suggesting he may be exactly what the US administration needs."

UK Magistrate Censured Over Niqab

"Britain's Judicial Communications Office that speaks for the Lord Chief Justice has censured a magistrate for refusing to deal with a face-veiled Muslim woman, The Telegraph reported on Wednesday, January 9."

Muslim Named Thailand's Rights Defender

"A hijab-clad Muslim has been named Thailand's 2007 human rights defender for her relentless efforts to bring justice for dozens of Muslims arrested following riots in 2004, the Bangkok Post reported on Thursday, January 10."

France is healthcare leader, US comes dead last: study

Surgeons operating at a US hospital

"France is tops, and the United States dead last, in providing timely and effective healthcare to its citizens, according to a survey Tuesday of preventable deaths in 19 industrialized countries."

Bush sees Mideast treaty before end of term

U.S. President George W. Bush, left, and Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas give a joint press conference on Thursday at the Muqataa, the Palestinian Authority Presidential Compound, in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

"President Bush on Thursday predicted that a Middle East peace treaty would be completed by the time he leaves office, but undercut that optimism with harsh criticism of Hamas militants who control part of the land that would form an eventual independent Palestine."

It's going to be interesting see how a Palestinian state will be developed WITHOUT including nearly 1.5 million of the proposed inhabitants.

Richardson to end presidential run

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson speaks to supporters as New Hampshire political advisers George Bruno, left, and former Mayor Bob Baines listen with supporters in Manchester, N.H., on Tuesday.

"New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson will announce Thursday that he is ending his campaign for the presidency, sources inside the Richardson campaign confirmed to NBC News on Wednesday."

Double Standard on Divestment

"Today, two movements for the promotion of human rights in Sudan and Palestine seek to emulate the successful role played by boycotts, divestment, and sanctions in achieving democracy and equality in South Africa. The two movements, however, have received radically different receptions on Capitol Hill. This double standard testifies to official Washington's selectivity when it comes to promoting human rights around the globe and its tendency to overlook the faults of its allies while using human rights as a pretext to punish its adversaries."

Where Are Tears for GIs, Iraqis?

"It just seems to me that Americans do not really want change. That is the only way I can explain the outcomes of both races and that includes those who were the winners on the Republican side."

Many diplomats disagree with Bush

"Some 48 percent of US diplomats who would refuse to volunteer to work in Iraq cited disagreement with President George W. Bush's policy as a factor, according to a survey released Tuesday."

Israel Rejected Political Settlement in Favor of War to Change Political Landscape

Area map showing Lebanon and surrounding countries and indicating the area of Shebaa Farms.

"During the first week of Israel's Second War on Lebanon Israeli officials refused an offer to transfer captured soldiers used as a pretext for the war to Lebanese president Siniora, with Tzipi Livni nearly "jumping out of her seat." In a new book, "Spider Webs - The Story of the Second Lebanon War" reviewed by Haaretz and published by Yedioth Ahronoth, the story is told how a diplomatic solution to ending the crisis and getting back the captured soldiers was completely refused in favor of continuing the war, UN officials report that the attitude from Israel was "Forget it, we're going to win.""

Hillary Clinton cries but vote goes to Barack Obama

"THE woman credited with moving Hillary Clinton to tears - believed to have helped win her the New Hampshire primary - voted for Barack Obama in the end."

US wants Pakistan to bite the bullet

"There are recurrent calls in Washington that Pakistan's multi-billion dollar military aid package be reviewed or even stopped if its performance is not found satisfactory."

Putin for president ... of the United States

"Flying across the vast Russian plain in 1944, the future French president Charles DeGaulle cursed the destiny that made him a Frenchman; if only he could rule a country the size of Russia, he mused, think of what he might accomplish! A similar thought must have occurred to Vladimir Putin, the most talented political leader of our time: what might he have done at the helm of the world's only superpower, instead of salvaging the hulk of the defeated Soviet Empire? Why not give him the chance?"

Dolphins: Iran's weapon against the US?

"The US Navy's use of high intensity, mid-frequency sonar is probably behind the alarming rate of self-stranding dolphins and whales on Iran's beaches. The Persian Gulf is the habitat of 40 different types of dolphins and the largest living mammal, the blue whale, and both species are endangered by US sonar activities. These activities, per the US court ruling, "cause irreparable harm" to marine mammals. Many more mammals may have died in deeper waters and, in the absence of any systematic study and data, we may be witnessing only the tip of the iceberg with beached mammals."

Millions of human beings have been and continue to be killed in America's "war on terror." Do you really think the US give a damn about the lives of whales and dolphins?

Eroding Western living standards

"Tata Motors emergence as front-runner to buy Jaguar and Land Rover from the ailing Ford brings one question uppermost to a commentator sitting at a wealthy Western desk: precisely which economic sectors can be relied upon in the future to provide jobs for Westerners at wages higher than are obtainable in the Third World? Will there continue to be opportunities to improve Western living standards, or are those living standards destined to descend to some kind of population-weighted average between Boston and Benin?"

The Gulf of Tonkin and the Strait of Hormuz

"As the U.S. government continues to demonstrate its inability to learn from history, an alarming report from the Strait of Hormuz was broadcast to the world on January 7. The Associated Press reported the following: "In what U.S. officials called a serious provocation, Iranian boats harassed and provoked three U.S. Navy ships in the strategic Strait of Hormuz, threatening to explode the American vessels." These Iranian ships are believed to part of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's navy, the organization that the U.S. Congress officially decreed a 'terrorist' organization."

The Ties That Strangle

"The administration has behaved as if there are only two choices in foreign policy – sending money or sending bombs. Our founding fathers knew a better way – to talk with our neighbors, do honest business with them, cultivate friendship, allow travel and open communication. We should neither initiate violence, nor take sides in conflicts that are none of our business."

Jewish nationalists form human chain around Jerusalem walls

"Thousands of Israeli nationalists formed a human chain around Jerusalem's Old City on Tuesday to protest at peace talks with the Palestinians ahead of a visit by US President George W. Bush."

Iraq cardinal: Christians not singled out for attack

"The spiritual leader of Iraq's Catholics said on Tuesday that a recent wave of bomb attacks on churches in Baghdad and Mosul was aimed at showing Iraq was not at peace rather than singling out Christians for persecution."

Why American is both loved and hated

"Immediately after the 9/11 attacks against the United States, President George W. Bush and many other perplexed, angry and often ignorant Americans asked a question: "Why do they hate us?" Then they made a statement: "You're either with us or against us." This week, those Americans who are actually interested in answering the question and exploring the validity of the statement have a very good opportunity to grasp precisely why most people around the world admire the US but also detest many aspects of its foreign policy."

Afghan Civilians Were Killed Needlessly

"A former member of an elite Marine combat unit that operated last year in eastern Afghanistan testified Tuesday that his comrades appeared to have needlessly killed civilians after their convoy was attacked by a suicide car bomb."

"A Heartbeat Away" From War

"As the American people amuse themselves with the illusion that they have any say in the way they are presently governed, our rulers are moving toward war. Two recent incidents underscore the imminence of this prospect."

Ron Paul invited to next Fox News GOP debate

"Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona, U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, former Massachussetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee have all accepted their invitations, said Rob Godfrey, spokesman for the state Republican Party."

Nasrallah: We're ready for any of Israel's crazy adventures

Nasrallah speaks on Al Manar Television network.

"Israel will suffer an even greater defeat than that which was suffered during that July, because Hizbullah today has become stronger, braver, and more experienced," Nasrallah said during a meeting with senior Lebanese religious leaders.

The Fog of War Crimes

"At this point, criminal responsibility for 24 murders in at least four separate locations is being placed on two Marines: Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich and Lance Cpl. Stephen Tatum. Of their squad of 13, they are the only two who face general court martial for the killings."

Snubbed by Fox, Paul holds own N.H. forum

"Shut out of a GOP presidential candidate forum sponsored by Fox News, Ron Paul staged his own televised town hall meeting today in which he fielded questions from undecided voters two days before the key primary election here."

Killer of U.S. Soldiers Becomes a Hero

The tribal chief added, "Juboor tribes and all other tribes are proud of Kaissar and what he did by killing the American soldiers. Now he is a hero, with a name that will never be forgotten."

I agree, Mr. Kaissar is a hero ~ I suppose critics would have Kaissar let the American soldiers brutalize the pregnant Iraqi woman.

U.S. says Iranian gunboats harassed warships

"Iranian Revolutionary Guard gunboats harassed three U.S. Navy warships in the Strait of Hormuz Sunday, in what the U.S. military considers a "significant provocative act.""

Can you say, "Tonkin Gulf" sports fans? ~ I knew you could. Maybe this is the justification Bush and Olmert cooked up to attack Iran while he's "visiting the Middle East".

For those of you too young to remember or who are informed, see the below posting on the Gulf of Tonkin lie that helped to launched the Vietman war.

Tonkin Gulf Lie Launched Vietnam War

USS Maddox operating in the Gulf of Tonkin

"The official story was that North Vietnamese torpedo boats launched an "unprovoked attack" against a U.S. destroyer on "routine patrol" in the Tonkin Gulf on Aug. 2 — and that North Vietnamese PT boats followed up with a "deliberate attack" on a pair of U.S. ships two days later.

The truth was very different."

Questions on Iran as Bush heads to Mideast

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaks during a press conference after handing the annual budget bill to the parliament in Tehran on Monday.

"President Bush intends to use his first extended tour of the Middle East to rally support for international pressure against Iran, even as a recent U.S. intelligence report playing down Tehran's nuclear ambitions has left Israeli and Arab leaders rethinking their own approach toward Iran and questioning Washington's resolve, according to senior U.S. officials, diplomats and regional experts."

I'm sure the Palestinians will be pleased to hear Bush is in the region to pressure Iran. I'm sure they thought Bush was coming to pressure Israel to halt the wholesale slaughter of their defenseless and innocent men, women and children, stop the destruction of their homes and farms, force the removal of Israeli settlements and checkpoints, and stop the confiscation of their land.

Iraq: Hail Caesar?

"It would come as no surprise, if an entire generation of Iraqi boys were born to bear the name of Caesar Saadi Al-Jibouri, the Iraqi soldier who recently killed three American soldiers after seeing them kicking down the door of a house in Mosul and assaulting a pregnant woman."

Israeli websites offer "manual for draft-dodging"

"Several Israeli websites feature guidebook instructing teenagers on how to obtain exemption from army service by posing as depressed, suicidal. 'No mental health officer can resist someone who memorized this manual,' says one draft-dodger."

Israel ~ the cause NOT worth fighting for and certainly not worth dying for.

Israel refuses to release report on settlements

"The report, whose preparation was kept secret, revealed that extensive building was carried out without permits on dozens of veteran settlements - not just outposts - often on privately owned Palestinian land. Spiegel's data came from the Civil Administration and other government agencies, as well as from photographic sorties carried out by civilian aircraft leased by the military establishment."

The Spiegel report would show Israeli's true intention ~ to steal Palestinian land and eventually "wipe Palestine off the map."

GOP candidate Ron Paul: Israel can get by without U.S. aid

"Representatives of Israel in the U.S., who make a point of maintaining contact with all of the candidates' campaign headquarters, have not bothered much with Paul. What could they say to a candidate whose supporters believe that Israel plays a central role in trying to provoke a U.S.-Iran war? How much schmoozing could they do with those who want the U.S. to get out of the Middle East?"

Another one of the many reasons why Ron Paul gets my vote.

Just going to work, Palestinians and Israelis travel different roads

Palestinians board buses for the long, checkpoint-ridden commute to work.

"In the pre-dawn chill, Darwish sets his Muslim prayer rug on the floor facing Mecca. In the soft morning light, Steinmetz throws on his prayer shawl and turns toward Jerusalem. Then the lives of these West Bank neighbors diverge."

Sure does look and sound a lot like apartheid to me ~ you know what they say, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it must be a duck...

Americans ready to stop the world and shut out reality

"Opinion polls show that Americans are both weary with and wary of the rest of the world. It's as if they wish it would all just go away."

In Musharraf's shadow, a new hope for Pakistan rises

General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani at the presidential palace in Islamabad, Pakistan, in November. (John Moore/Getty Images)

"Over the last several months, a little-known, enigmatic Pakistani general has quietly raised hopes among American officials that he could emerge as a new force for stability in Pakistan, according to current and former government officials. But it remains too early to determine whether he can play a decisive role in the country."

The real question is, is the good General Kayani suitable to become America's next puppet?

Israel to brief George Bush on options for Iran strike

"ISRAELI security officials are to brief President George W Bush on their latest intelligence about Iran’s nuclear programme - and how it could be destroyed - when he begins a tour of the Middle East in Jerusalem this week."

Jewish favorites fall in Iowa

"The two presidential candidates deemed most favorable by Jewish voters were roundly defeated in the opening round of the 2008 presidential contest. U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) finished third in the Iowa Caucuses on Jan. 3 after an intensely fought campaign, while former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani finished sixth on the Republican side, earning less than 4 percent of the vote."

Good, I hope this is a sign of things to come...

Ahead of visit, Bush talks Israel ties -- and pressure

With President Bush pressing the point on unauthorized outposts and Israel saying it will be cracking down as early as next week, will clashes like this one in 2006 at Amona between police and protesters be repeated?

"The message from the White House on the eve of President Bush's first presidential visit to Israel is that his staunch support for the Jewish state has set the stage for peace -- and given him room to exert some pressure on Jerusalem."

Very, very little pressure I'd wager ~ such as, Mr. Olmert sir, would you please consider stopping the slaughter of defenseless and innocent Palestinians, the destruction of their homes and farms, and the confiscation of their land?

Nukes, Spooks, and the Spector of 911

"Edmonds draws a picture of a three-sided alliance consisting of Turkish, Pakistani, and Israeli agents who coordinated efforts to milk U.S. nuclear secrets and technology, funneling the intelligence stream to the black market nuclear network set up by the Pakistani scientist A.Q. Khan. The multi-millionaire Pakistani nuclear scientist then turned around and sold his nuclear assets to North Korea, Libya, and Iran. "

Only Telling Half the Story?

"Yesterday there were a flurry of reports about an Iraqi soldier shooting and killing two US soldiers during a joint mission. Reported as the first time this has happened, the reports in the American press may tell only half the story."

Typically, the Zionist controlled Western media is only reporting half the story. The below is what IS NOT being reported:

"The reports are that during searching the woman's house the Americans assaulted her and when she was on the ground started to kick. The soldier who is named Caesar Saadi Al-Jibouri asked them to stop beating her and when via interpreter they refused saying that could do as they wished he went to one of the patrol vehicles and opened fire."

What, me worry that Bush is coming?

"Recent experience suggests that we should be very worried that President George W. Bush is coming to the Middle East next week to promote peace. The last time he made such a journey, in June 2003, what ensued was an accelerated cycle of violence and ideological conflict that sees most of the Middle East today wracked by warfare, routine terrorism, and intense political confrontation, threats, and stress."

Bush - A president hostile to Israel

"George Bush is coming to Israel this week. He will take pleasure in his visit. One can assume that there are few prime ministers with a giant photo of themselves with the U.S. president hanging on the wall in their home, as our Ehud Olmert boasted last week that he does, to his exalted guest, the comic Eli Yatzpan. There are also few other countries where the lame duck from Washington would not be greeted with mass demonstrations; instead, Israel is making great efforts to welcome him graciously. The man who has wreaked such ruin upon the world, upon his country, and upon us is such a welcome guest only in Israel."

For sale: West’s deadly nuclear secrets

"The Turks and Israelis had planted “moles” in military and academic institutions which handled nuclear technology. Edmonds says there were several transactions of nuclear material every month, with the Pakistanis being among the eventual buyers. “The network appeared to be obtaining information from every nuclear agency in the United States,” she said."

Many more Israelis than Turks I'd bet.

Muslim women to curb terror

"Amid fears that extremists are becoming more sophisticated in their recruitment, Hazel Blears, the communities secretary, has concluded that a key way to stop extremist ideas further permeating Muslim communities is to give “the silent majority” a stronger voice."

UK living standards outstrip US

"LIVING standards in Britain are set to rise above those in America for the first time since the 19th century, according to a report by the respected Oxford Economics consultancy."

Israel's Vanunu avoids jail (for now)

"The Israeli government has backed down over a threat to imprison Mordechai Vanunu, who served 18 years for revealing its nuclear weapons programme to The Sunday Times and now stands accused of breaching the conditions of his 2004 release by speaking to foreign reporters, writes Peter Hounam."

Pentagon Pushes for Middle Eastern "Marshall Plan"

"Slowly, quietly, some in the Pentagon are pushing for a Middle Eastern version of the Marshall Plan, to change the economic realities that fuel Islamic extremism."

Interesting, when Muslims strive for basic human rights, justice, and fundamental human dignity and fairness the Zionists controlled Western media call it "Islamic extremism."

Why I Believe Bush Must Go by George McGovern

"Bush and Cheney are clearly guilty of numerous impeachable offenses. They have repeatedly violated the Constitution. They have transgressed national and international law. They have lied to the American people time after time. Their conduct and their barbaric policies have reduced our beloved country to a historic low in the eyes of people around the world. These are truly "high crimes and misdemeanors," to use the constitutional standard."
