Palestinian rockets fired at Israel despite truce

"The attack came hours after Israeli troops killed two Palestinians in a West Bank raid. The victims included an Islamic Jihad commander. The militant group later claimed responsibility for firing the rockets, saying the attack was intended to avenge the Israeli operation."

Notice the headline and what's actually written in the article. Now, you tell me who BROKE THE TRUCE...

What a crock of Zionist propaganda Bull Sh*T!

IAEA Chief: Iran Could Make Nuke In 6 Months

"If Iran wants to turn to the production of nuclear weapons, it must leave the NPT, expel the IAEA inspectors, and then it would need at least, considering the number of centrifuges and the quantity of uranium Iran has...It would need at least six months to one year," ElBaradei said. " Therefore, Iran will not be able to reach the point where we would wake up one morning to an Iran with a nuclear weapon," he said.

Notice the headline - "Iran Could Make Nuke in 6 Months"!!! - That's the shock effect - but the really important part of the statement is the last sentence!!!

Boy George Banned in the USA

"The "Karma Chameleon" purveyor has been refused a visa for the U.S. leg of his summer tour, which was to include a special performance for his former colleagues at New York's Department of Sanitation, over complications arising from the singer's criminal past and pending his London trial this November."

Yep, looks like a terrorist to me...

An Israeli police officer fatally shot himself in the head on Tuesday at an airport departure ceremony for French President Nicholas Sarkozy, authorities said, sparking fear of an assassination attempt and prompting bodyguards to whisk Sarkozy and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert away from the scene.(AP Photo/Dan Balilty)"

Now, if any of you buy the propaganda that this was somehow an accident and NOT an assassination attempt on Sarkozy, I've a bridge in Brooklyn and a big clock in London I want to sell you!

Stop the Expulsion campaign launched

"The Civic Coalition today launched a campaign to mobilize the international community to end Israel’s expulsion of Palestinians from Jerusalem. We are calling on everyone from activists to governments to take concrete action to pressure the occupying power into ending violations against Palestinians housing and residency rights in the city."

Jerusalem subjected to comprehensive process to Judaize the land, rights, and sanctities

"The Christian and Islamic Front for the Defense of Jerusalem and its Holy Sites, accuse the “occupying state of conducting a campaign to Judaize the holy city, its intellectual rights, land and holy shrines.” One need only look at the situation on the ground to validate the accusation."

Court Voids Finding on Guantánamo Detainee

"The court’s decision was a new setback for the Bush administration, which has suffered a string of judicial defeats on Guantánamo policy, most recently in a Supreme Court ruling on June 12 that dealt with a separate issue of detainee rights. The Uighur case was argued long before that ruling by the justices."

Sworn to virginity and living as men in Albania

Qamile Stema, 88, a so-called sworn virgin, scolds relatives for not visiting her often enough. (Johan Spanner for The New York Times)

"Stripping off their sexuality by pledging to remain virgins was a way for these women in a male-dominated, segregated society to engage in public life," says Linda Gusia, a professor of gender studies at the University of Pristina in Kosovo. "It was about surviving in a world where men rule."

The Myth of 'Weapons-Grade' Enrichment

"Talk about the double standards at the United Nations. Whereas UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon has repeatedly condemned Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad's rhetoric against Israel, expressing "shock and dismay", he has remained ominously, and inexcusably, silent about the blatant Israeli threats of military attacks on Iran, thus undermining the world's confidence in his ability to steer the global community clear of yet another major war in the Middle East caldron. Having turned a blind eye to Iran's formal protest at the UN regarding Israel's explicit threats, Ban may need to revisit his own statement of June 7, 2007, " The secretary general points out that all members have undertaken to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state."

Israel's Holocaust survivors cheated - by Israel

"A report issued Sunday by a commission of inquiry under retired Supreme Court Justice Dalia Dorner found that of the Holocaust reparations paid to Israel under a 1952 deal with Germany, only about 62 percent found their way to survivors living in the Jewish state."

Why am I not surprised by this???

Dobson accuses Obama of 'distorting' Bible

"I think he's deliberately distorting the traditional understanding of the Bible to fit his own worldview, his own confused theology," Dobson said. "... He is dragging biblical understanding through the gutter."

Obama Insults Half a Race

"The Democratic presidential nominee-apparent seldom speaks directly to Black people, but when he does it is usually to denounce individuals once close to him or to criticize The Race in general for some moral failing. Thus it was no surprise that Barack Obama used the occasion of Father's Day to give Black males the back of his hand, no doubt to the delight of millions of potential white supporters. Black males have "abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men," said Obama, citing statistics on female-headed households. "You and I know how true this is in the African-American community.""

Blacks and Muslims shouldn't be surprised by Obama's words and actions - after all, the good Senator is half white and Christian...

Israel 'will attack Iran' before new US president sworn in, John Bolton predicts

"John Bolton, the former American ambassador to the United Nations, has predicted that Israel could attack Iran after the November presidential election but before George W Bush's successor is sworn in."

Iran to get ICBMs before missile shield deployed

"America's proposed missile shield in Europe is unlikely to be operational before Iran acquires inter-continental weapons, it has emerged."

Muslim voters detect a snub from Obama

"When Mr. Obama began his presidential campaign, Muslim Americans from California to Virginia responded with enthusiasm, seeing him as a long-awaited champion of civil liberties, religious tolerance and diplomacy in foreign affairs. But more than a year later, many say, he has not returned their embrace."

Obama is about to learn that - Man does not win presidential campaigns with Jews alone...

The Real State of Iraq

"By now, summer of 2008, excess deaths from violence in Iraq since March of 2003 must be at least a million. This conclusion can be reached more than one way. There is not much controversy about it in the scientific community. Some 310,000 of those were probably killed by US troops or by the US Air Force, with the bulk dying in bombing raids by US fighter jets and helicopter gunships on densely populated city and town quarters."

Iran warns of 'limitless' response to any military strike

"Iran on Sunday dismissed reports that Israel had been practising for air strikes against its nuclear drive as "psychological operations" but warned of a limitless response to any attack."

I'd take these guys at their word - I really don't think their bluffing...

IDF troops admit to taking bribes from Palestinians at checkpoints

"Two IDF soldiers from the Kfir Brigade were arrested last week following suspicions they had accepted bribes from Palestinians seeking to pass through West Bank roadblocks, Ynet has learned."

Notice the spin of the article - they make is sound like a military discipline problem when the issue really relates to criminal behavior and respect for human rights.

My Trip to the West Bank

"Do you see a future for us out there?"

"The driver, an immigrant from Morocco who had served as a tank crewman in the Six-Day War, let me in on his peace plan: "Kill them all! Men, women, and children: all of them, like you did in Hiroshima."
