"Muslims believe that power is ultimately God, and God has 99 key attributes," Mr. Mutawa said. "Those attributes, if they all come together in one place, essentially become the unity of God." He stresses that only God has them all, however, and 30 of the traits deemed uniquely divine will not be embodied by his characters.
The heroes include Darr the Afflicter, an American paraplegic named John Wheeler, who manipulates nerve endings to transmit or prevent pain. Noora the Light -- Dana Ibrahim, a university student from the United Arab Emirates -- shows people the light and dark inside themselves. Mumita the Destroyer, a ferocious fighter, is Catarina Barbarosa, a Portuguese bombshell in tight clothes.
For those who don't know, there can be no such thing as a "Hindu-Muslim family." According to Islam, Muslim men can only marry women who are Muslim, Christian, or Jewish and Muslim women can only marry Muslim men.
Although a few papers refused to carry the DVD, about 70 including The New York Times distributed it on the grounds that rejecting it would violate the sponsor's right to free speech. The decision generated letters, cancellations and even a protest.
Immigrants lose their faith upon moving to Israel, asserts Rabbi Lazar ahead of holiday season. While Israeli society is to blame for this phenomenon, he says, it can be reversed if one moves back to Russia
Last week, the Bush administration proposed a three-page bill to bail out Wall Street to the tune of $700 billion. It died in the U.S. House of Representatives earlier this week. On Friday, though, the House approved a far bigger, broader, and beefier version of the bill--which has ballooned to a remarkable 442 pages. The vote was 263 to 171, with the bulk of the opposition coming from Republicans. Because the Senate already approved the measure, it immediately went to President Bush, who signed it into law.
Troops in a military base in France have opposed their deployment to Afghanistan amid dwindling support of French forces being there.
That's because the underlying intent of the NPT was never to eliminate the nuclear weapons of the nations that have them but to stop non-nuclear nations from acquiring them...
Felimon Cayang is leading a fanatical Christian militia to battle Muslim groups seeking a Muslim homeland in southern Philippines. "We will not hesitate to kill any Moro who wants to take our lands away," Cayang, a 48-year-old farmer, told Agence France-Presse (AFP) on Friday, October 3. "We are prepared to die."
Man, talk about the pot calling the kettle black...
Americans are supposed to be tried by a "jury of their peers." Maybe it's just me, but I'm having a hard time understanding how 9 white women and 3 white men can be considered a jury of O.J.'s peers. Surely, they could have found several people of color to serve on the jury. Clearly, an appeal is in order...
According to my count, that's 69% of Americans who believe their economy is in deep trouble...

Unfortunately, President Karzai is not responsible for his own security - the Americans are. And, somehow I don't think the US would appreciate Mr. Omar joining the Afghan government...
Upon arrival in Iraq from Washington, President Jalal Talabani told reporters that he is concerned over Washington threats. "Washington threatened to use any means to seize Iraqi assets if we do not support the security pact," Marsadiraq quoted Talabani as saying.
"We will use disproportionate force against these villages (in southern Lebanon) and cause enormous destruction because from our point of view these are not villages but military bases," Major General Gadi Eisenkot, the top commander in northern Israel was quoted by Yediot Aharonot on Friday.
At some point, you just gotta ask yourself - who are these people???
Financial stocks, which had traded sharply higher on the expectation the bill would be passed, fell after the House vote. Traders cited profit-taking and said the market was now focusing on the tough economic road still ahead and on how the bill will be implemented.
"There are members of the Security Council right now who have done things infinitely worse than Iran could ever do," D'Escoto told a news conference. When asked who he was referring to, D'Escoto, who has a history of criticizing U.S. administrations, quoted a Spanish saying: "For those who have the power of understanding, you need only a few words."
"This is just the beginning of the olive harvest which will be going on for the next two months," said the executive director of Rabbis for Human Rights, Arik Ascherman. He said activists were going to 40 Palestinian villages to protect olive growers and uphold their right to work the land, and harvest. They would act "as human shields" if necessary.
Jewish soldiers can wear yarmulkes while in uniform? I wonder if Muslim service members can wear kufis, the Muslim prayer cap, with their uniform??
- "We hoped they wouldn't pursue this case, as a gesture of good will, and because of the important need to reconnect with our community and build trust again," said Aref Assaf, a member if the group Americans 4 Qatanani, which supported his immigration fight. "It seems that there has been a political decision at a higher level to pursue this case, and they continue to persecute — not just prosecute — our community and our leader."
The final vote was 263-171 in the House, a comfortable margin that was 58 more votes than the measure garnered in Monday's stunning defeat. The vote capped two weeks of tumult in Congress and on Wall Street, punctuated by daily warnings that the country confronted the gravest economic crisis since the Great Depression if lawmakers failed to act.
On a day when he abandoned the fight with rival Barack Obama in one battleground state and national polls showed him trailing overall, Sarah Palin put on a debate performance that soothed the pain.
This article, as most of the Zionist controlled main-stream media, makes it sound like Governor Palin held her own against Senator Biden. But, the fact is, she didn't.
It was very clear from the outset that Palin was in way, way over her head. Her handlers had lower the bar for her so low, that all she had to do was show up and not fall down as she walked on stage, to "hold her own." Palin had no idea what she was talking about most of the time - she clearly lacks the depth of knowledge necessary to analyize the complex issues presidents and vice-presidents will have to wrestle with.
Palin responded to well considered national and international policy positions and facts presented by Senator Biden by winking and....well, by saying things that, frankly, didn't make sense. The only thing Palin made crystal clear last night was that she loved Israel. That she made absolutely clear. And, as a bonafided Christian Zionist, she is being rewarded by the Zionist controlled main-steam media. If the good Governor was not such a rabid Christian Zionist and Isreal Firster, the media would call her what she is, a pretty face who can memorize and deliver her lines on cue...
California may need an emergency loan of up to $7 billion from the federal government within weeks, the Los Angeles Times on Friday quoted Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger as saying in a letter to U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson.
Employers slashed payrolls by 159,000 in September, the most in more than five years, a worrisome sign that the economy is hurtling toward a deep recession.
When a contingent of U.S. soldiers opens a radar facility on a mountaintop in the Negev desert next month, Israel will for the first time in its 60-year history have a permanent foreign military base on its soil. And despite the early warning that the American radar would provide if Iran launches a missile attack on Israel, some senior Israeli officials are nonetheless wary about its presence. Complained one top official, "It's a like a pair of golden handcuffs on Israel."
Yea, it is - and that's exactly the intent! Did you know that ONLY American troops are allowed to operate the system, that all missile tracking data will be transmitted to the US and NOT Israel, and that the system allows the US to keep watch on Israel as well as Iran? I knew you didn't...
A 1977 law ensures a low-cost, and in some cases free, legal abortion to any woman who fills one of four criteria:
She is under 18 or over 40 (cost to those in between: 1,500 shekels [$370]).
She is carrying a fetus with a serious mental or physical defect (free).
She claims that the fetus results from forbidden relations such as rape or incest (free) or, in the case of a married woman, that the baby is not her husband's (not free). Single women also fall under this clause, and they too must pay.
She shows that by continuing the pregnancy, her physical or mental health would be damaged (free).
In 1980, a fifth criterion that allowed abortions for women living in economic hardship was abolished due to pressure from religious political parties. See the article here.
I wonder if Christian Zionists and so-called "pro-life" groups in America know they are funding abortions in Israel??
This is really NOT a "diplomatic achievement," as the article claims. The universal requirement and use of biometric passports will eventually make visas everywhere unnecessary and obsolete...
The 29-year-old nun lodged a complaint on 25 August alleging rape by a member of a Hindu mob in Kandhamal district. Police are criticised for being slow to act - they say they have been trying to keep the peace in the area, which has seen weeks of Hindu-Christian violence.

In other words, an attack against Iran will be viewed as an attack against Russia...

In Dede's case, due to a low immune deficiency, the virus flourished to a massive, debilitating infection. Over nine months, Dr Gaspari issued Dede with chemotherapy and performed gruelling surgery to remove 13lbs of branch-like warts.
- “I’m not one to attribute every activity of man to the changes in the climate,” she said. “There is something to be said, also, for man’s activities, but also for the cyclical temperature changes on our planet. But there are real changes going on in our climate, and I don’t want to argue about the causes.”
Do the American people really share their devout love for the "Jewish" people and Israel?? Do the American people really see Israel and America's #1Middle East ally??? If they do, then McCain and Palin wins by a land-slide, but if they don't, expect to see Obama slowly pull away from McCain as we close in on election day.
Remember Hillary's comment that she would "obliterate" Iran, if Ahmadinejad attacked Israel? How much this comment contributed to her lost to Obama we'll never know, but you can bet, it did have some effect. Of course, this is a subtle but very important point the Zionist controlled main-stream media will never make known to the American public.
- "The folks at A&M treated them horribly because they looked different, ate different food and spoke differently and because they are from Iraq and Muslim," the couple's lawyer, Shane McClelland, was quoted as saying in Friday's online editions of the Houston Chronicle.
Sarah Palin accused Barack Obama of voting against funding for U.S. troops in combat Thursday night in their much-anticipated campaign debate and chastised his Democratic , Joe Biden, for defending the move, "especially with your son in the National Guard" and headed for Iraq.
And, she really, really, really loves Israel...
McCain will go off TV in Michigan, stop dropping mail there and send most of his staff to more competitive states, including Wisconsin, Ohio and Florida. Wisconsin went for Kerry in 2004, Ohio and Florida for Bush.
The article makes it sound like the economy is the main reason why McCain can't gain traction with the voters in Michigan. But, another reason might be the fact that Michigan is home to the largest US Arab/Muslim population, and they're not happy with the McCain/Palin positions on the three I's - Iran, Iraq and Israel. Of course, the Zionist controlled main-stream media will never mention this possibility because they would be admitting to the growing Arab and Muslim political influence in the United States.
Desperate to avoid another market-crushing defeat, House leaders won key converts Thursday to the $700 billion financial industry bailout on the eve of a make-or-break second vote.
Looks like the fix is in...
Ahmadinejad was asked: "If the Palestinian leaders agree to a two-state solution, could Iran live with an Israeli state?"
This was his response:
If they [the Palestinians] want to keep the Zionists, they can stay ... Whatever the people decide, we will respect it. I mean, it's very much in correspondence with our proposal to allow Palestinian people to decide through free referendums.
See the interview and read the full text on the Democracy Now website.
Not surprisingly, Ahmadinejad's interview was not even mentioned by the Zionist controlled main-stream media outlets. President Ahmadinejad has been demonized and called Hitler for supposedly making the well debunked "wiping Israel off the map" statement - but the media ignores one of his most important statements. Typical...
In other words, elements of the State are supporting terror against the Palestinians - well, doesn't that make Israel a TERRORIST STATE??
TRUTH does not need to be enforced by threat of arrest and imprisonment. TRUTH is it's own defense. Only a LIE must be PROTECTED and FORCED down the throats of people...
See my comments on an earlier post entitled: "Respect for religion now makes censorship the norm." The author argues that Muslims use "fear and intimidation" to silence criticism of Islam. Yet, she never mentions how Zionists and the governments that support them use "fear and intimidation" to perpetuate the Zionist version of the so-called holocaust...
Well, fat people need love too...
Hallway of Abu Ghraib prison...

"We applaud the serious efforts of the International Gymnastics Federation and International Olympic Committee to conduct an investigation given the level of speculation that existed," said Steve Penny, president of USA Gymnastics. "We believe the continuing investigation regarding the evidence from the Olympic Games in Sydney underscores the importance of maintaining a fair field of play and identifying methods to prevent questions of this nature in the future."
In a white-steepled church along a stretch in picturesque canyon country, the preacher laid out the basic blueprint of a godly marriage: Husbands lead, wives submit. Speaking recently before hundreds of worshipers at Placerita Baptist Church in Newhall, guest preacher Chris Mueller affirmed the view that loving male headship and gracious wifely submission are God's plan for spouses.
