Reading the following AFP story, wherein the words Islam, Muslim, Allah, or Mohammed are not mentioned. At all. Even once. Can be extremely hazardous to your health. You have warned!

'Teen at origin of French youth riots arrested in fresh unrest'

Rioters hurling rocks clashed with police in the rough suburbs of Paris for a second night running. (The) fresh wave of rioting spread from nearby Montfermeil, where gangs attacked a police station, set ablaze cars and rained stones down on public buildings. Police said four officers were wounded while protecting the Montfermeil police station from a hail of missiles. Four other officers, visibly rattled, managed to get out of their car, in front of the Bosquets public housing estate on the border of the two towns, just before the youths set it on fire.

A day earlier seven officers were injured following the first outbreak of clashes late Monday, when Montfermeil's town hall and mayor's home were attacked and a gang of 100 masked youths patrolled the suburb. (Last year's) riots quickly snowballed in high-immigrant districts, fuelled by local youth anger at racial discrimination, a lack of educational and employment prospects and police harassment.


On 24 March 1975, 50-year-old bricklayer Alex Mitchell of King's Lynn in Norfolk, England, kicked the bucket while roaring with laughter at one of his favorite television shows, the comedy programme The Goodies.

'Extremists terrorize Jews in Paris'

Members of an extremist group marched through a Jewish quarter in central Paris shouting anti-Semitic slogans over the weekend. Shoppers in the historic Marais neighbourhood, one of the busiest districts in the Jewish area of Paris, were left in shock early Sunday evening.

More than 20 members of the Tribu-Ka group walked up and down the crowded Rue des Rosiers shouting at families and performing Nazi salutes, threatening and intimidating them. "They screamed out 'Death to Jews!'" one witness told EJP.

Tribu-Ka's leader is Kemi Seba, formerly known as Stellio Gilles Robert, a former member of Nation of Islam in Paris who has previously been indicted for racist incitement.

Don't be fooled by the title of this JPost link (or any other pronouncments of same?).

'US agrees to enter multilateral direct talks with Iran's gov't'

Iran Focus has the complete text of her speech, I wouldn't even bother with the newspaper story ( I haven't). But I do recommend reading Condi's words, entire.

'Full text: Rice's statement on Iran-U.S. nuclear discussions'

On the printed page, her words are quite stately and presidential. Clear, concise, plain. For all to see. This is Iran's last chance to comply or we're gonna shove a large boot up their ass. This speech a turning point. There is no going back. But then Dear Reader, y'all already know that ..... World War III Began Yesterday, October 26, 2005. But the World Did Little Note.

Why the Rush to Suck Ahmadinejad's D*ck?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


Haven't even begun reading the link. It's from Spiegel online, nonstop purveyors of Bushitler, Rommelsfeld, and Goehrice. Yes, I admit I found a spot of overt antisemitism when traveling in Germany some twenty years ago. Some of it quite comical. Didn't bother me. I much rather took to heart all of the young Germans I then knew back home, here in the U.S.. Who had moved on to another age.

I guess I'll go ahead and read the link, waste some time. Sh*t maybe even deconstruct the Tinkertoy creation, or ..... not? Bottom line, when the rush to demonize the U.S. overwhelms any all semblance of reality. Then we have to accept that a new world has arrived. One borne of not understandable idiocy. Shallow transparent memes transplanted for thought, idea, and understanding.

We, the U.S. and Israel are in ZERO hurry to bomb Iran. We're both doing a little diplo song and dance, knowing it will do no good. As it already has. Simply putting on the good face, a little performance, an atomic play called connect the dots, for primary gradeschoolers. An attempt to educate one or two, or three.

There is nothing hip, slick or cool about America hatred. It only exposes the empty craniums of its believers. Even America's self-haters. Painting Ahmadinejad as a victim? More of the same. The world, and however many of seventy million Iranians who do not want to be consumed in his fire? Deserve better. They however will not get it. Waiting for a revolution in Iran, same as waiting for the tooth fairy at forty eight years old. It's possible, sure. Just not very likely. Unilateral is the game plan. Is the eventuality. Just as Iran won't waste a single part of a single second. Pushing the button, declaring launch, sending death and destruction outbound. When practice makes perfect and the missile is on the pad, that rocket motor will light. As day follows night.

We're in no hurry because we do not like the job with which we have been tasked by Iran. Death and destruction on a major scale. We've been hand delivered an invite by the golden glowing one from Tehran. We wish it were not so. We wish things were different. But wishing, or deflecting, or even fictionalizing it, will not change it.

Only Ahmadinejad can change unfolding events. Only he has the power to prevent the coming aerial bombardment of numerous Iranian uranium processing, enrichment, and manufacturing facilities, and assorted military support locales. No one else. Not millions of peaceniks, liberals, progressives and greens here at home. Nor countless apologists for militant radical Isalm across the globe.

The day is not important. Tomorrow? Next week? Iran's president has made perfectly clear his thoughts, his intentions. Why anyone would be surprised when disgust is expressed at the sight of so many pulling on Ahmadinejad's wang with their lips? Is beyond me. If I had both the keys and the codes? I'd give him seventy two hours to stand his nuke program down. And then I'd launch. Without a whisper of regret.

Yeah, what he said ...... a nice tidy (but granite thick) piece from The Brussels Journal: 'Wars, Symmetric and Asymmetric, and Non-Peace' By George Handlery.

I'm not quite sure how to summarize the post. I guess he's hoping there will be a change in the perception, and the rules of current warfare? Accounting for the nature of the beast that abounds and threatens us. A monster that knows no limit to beastial slaughter. No rules. Seeing the Geneva Convention's restrictions as more of a how to guide. Hiding behind our attempt to employ its mandates. Our respect for the foundational civility of our existence. Me, I've stepped out of the confines of hoping, long war is understatement, I see only perpetuity. Not the end of life, of living. Just that terror is now our constant companion. We are all targets. As I've already said above, this morning. What are we waiting for?

G*d Bless You and Your's

As a child of five, I was impressed with the Marine Corps Hymn ....

From the Halls of Montezuma
To the Shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
of United States Marine.

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in ev'ry clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job--
The United States Marines.

Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve
In many a strife we've fought for life
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.

In those days, JFK was President. And even I could sense the optimism that life then granted us. Times change, Kennedy was struck down, as well his brother. And Martin Luther King. Vietnam launched the start of the modern media war. Which this gradeschooler was rolled over by. Even going so far as to mimic protestors on television yelling: "burn it." Which in the fourth grade, earned me a trip to the principal's office.

The power of media is strong. Even mighty. Today what is lacking from it's purveyors, is an understanding of that power. And their own personal responsibility to the truth. Not as a solitary avenue for the spread of their own political beliefs. Then, being constantly bombarded with the weekly domestic body count on the evening news, and the concurrent never ending coverage of the protest movement. An eight year old had no hope of understanding events. Nothing being provded to him, to gain that understanding.

Lives given, lives lost. In war. By our fellow Americans. On Memorial Day we think of them. For a piece of land, a country, a world entire they have fought. And died. But the earth returned is only that. The life upon it which we live, that is what is precious. And not simply the beating of our hearts, or the drawing of breath. But freedom. Freedom to think, to believe, to even speak that belief.

The ultimate joy. Never forsaken in battle by our men and women. We walk upon the earth unencumbered. Our spirits are allowed to soar to any height. Set free. By the very blood of those soldiers. Believe what you want about this war, about today's leaders. Why even speak it aloud. It is only because of those we remember, that you can do so. That you are free. An American.

Tomorrow, I hope to keeep a promise I made to myself a few years back. To pay respect on this one day, to those who have given all for freedom. It's posssible I won't make it. Though not for lack of trying. But whether I stand alongside others in a public ceremony, or not. My heart will be there. G*d bless you and your's.

Mine eyes have seen the glory
Of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage
Where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning
Of His terrible swift sword;
His truth is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watchfires
Of a hundred circling camps
They have builded Him an altar
In the evening dews and damps;
I can read His righteous sentence
By the dim and flaring lamps;
His day is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have read a fiery gospel writ
In burnished rows of steel:
"As ye deal with My contemners,
So with you My grace shall deal":
Let the Hero born of woman
Crush the serpent with His heel,
Since God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet
That shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men
Before His judgement seat;
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him;
Be jubilant, my feet;
Our God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies
Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom
That transfigures you and me;
As He died to make men holy,
Let us die to make men free;
While God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

'Top 10 Signs of the Impending U.S. Police State'

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

From secret detention centers to warrantless wiretapping, Bush and Co. give free rein to their totalitarian impulses.

'Is the U.S. becoming a police state? Here are the top 10 signs that it may well be the case.'

1. The Internet Clampdown
2. "The Long War"
4. Prison Camps
5. Touchscreen Voting Machines
6. Signing Statements
7. Warrantless Wiretapping
8. Free Speech Zones
9. High-ranking Whistleblowers
10. The CIA Shakeup

A righteous laughfest the above link is. Yes, sometimes I DO feel a little bit guilty for some/all of the name calling I engage in here. Directed at liberals. I do know that many of em are nice folks, some misguided, some simply ignorant. Having a strong but unshakable belief in their shallow view of politic. Sure, name calling won't help a drop or even a dollop. Truth be told, some of the time I'm actually sticking it to myself. A combination of devilish laughter, and the joy of relief. That I myself no longer have such flat shallow, depthless vision. That I am left no more.

There are currently a hundred and thirty five comments in the thread, following the linked post. The points raised not even worthy of countering (well, I'm no fan of electronic voting. But that's not to say it is inherently inferior to mechanical, or that it like everything else is a Bushco plot). And no point in registering for the site, wasting time with a bwahaha troll. But bless their little hearts and even tinier brains. They remind me of the old bumper sticker back when local P.D.s and sheriffs actually used to go bust churches for bingo: "Keep Grandma Off the Street, Vote/Support Bingo."

I'm confused, I thought it was da Jooos who had the mind control machines? Now this Yahoo/AP link sez it's the Japanese (funny, they don't look Jewish).

'Honda says brain waves control robot'

TOKYO - In a step toward linking a person's thoughts to machines, Japanese automaker Honda said it has developed a technology that uses brain signals to control a robot's very simple moves.

In a video demonstration in Tokyo, brain signals detected by a magnetic resonance imaging scanner were relayed to a robotic hand. A person in the MRI machine made a fist, spread his fingers and then made a V-sign. Several seconds later, a robotic hand mimicked the movements.

Of course it could go someways to explain the hippy disposition of readily flashing the peace sign? Perhaps they are being manipulated by those evil cunning pacifist Japanese!

We can only guess what she'll threaten to do if she really gets pissed?

'MP threatens to breastfeed in Parliament'

ROME, May 25 (UPI) -- A new mother newly elected to the Italian Parliament is threatening to breastfeed in the House chamber unless a baby-care room is provided. Donatella Poretti, a member of the Radical Party, said she has been using the parliament building's infirmary to feed her daughter, Alice.

"At present I'm forced to beg space in the infirmary" she said in a letter to House Speaker Fausto Bertinotti. "Next Tuesday is an all-day session. Should I follow the doctors' advice and take Alice with me into the House or find a spot in the parliamentary lounge?" She said she hopes Parliament will set an example for other employers by adding a baby-care room to the many other facilities already available for legislators.

'Man With Prosthetic Legs, Deaf Man Brawl'

VALPARAISO, Ind. - Two men who had driven around several towns for hours after meeting in a bar, ended up fighting after one of the men couldn't communicate directions clearly. Kent Hisey, 52, became frustrated by the difficulty of James Mills, who is deaf, in communicating, police said. They had driven from the Playboy Lounge in New Chicago to Portage, then Hobart - and finally to Valparaiso - communities spread across two northwest Indiana counties.

Hisey, who (drives with) two prosthetic legs, stopped his car at the Porter County Airport, got out and used his walker to go around to the passenger side, where he grabbed Mills to pull him from the car. Mills (then) pushed Hisey to the ground, causing him to hit his head. Paramedics arrived to treat Hisey's lacerations and take him to Porter Hospital. Police wrote a note to Mills informing him he was being arrested on a battery charge.

Officers conducted a field sobriety test on Hisey. His blood-alcohol level registered 0.16 percent. Both Hisey and Mills were taken to the Porter County Jail, where they were being held.

Well, let's give Chevrolet credit where due. They finally fixed the problem with them retractable headlights (snicker). Now ..... about those removable hardtops.

'GM recalls '05, '06 Vettes'

General Motors Corp. will recall more than 30,000 Corvettes after customers complained that the roof flew off while they were driving the car. The automaker received 21 reports of roofs detaching from 2005 and 2006 Chevrolet Corvette(s).

(The) roofs are designed to be detachable by releasing latches. The unintentional separation occurs when adhesive that holds the base of the roof to the car frame weakens and fails, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.

Owners with problem roofs may notice water leaks or a snapping noise when going over a bump. GM received 395 reports of partial separating of the roof, in addition to the 21 cases of it flying off.

'Dell, Google in partnership'

AUSTIN, Texas, May 25 (UPI) -- Dell Inc. has agreed to load Google Inc. software on personal computers made by (Dell). California's Google (agrees) to pay Dell to install its desktop software for searching the content of a user's hard drive and emails, as well as to install a Web browser search toolbar. Dell would also set the default search engine for its PCs to Google's offering.

Friday, 5:00 a.m.

Oh what a tangled web we weave. Some very interesting posters in comments over at F* It's always a treat for me to come across knowledgeable individuals, sharing pointed insight regarding the bouillabaisse du jour (or of course, individuals who like Google even less than yours truly ...... and aren't afraid to show it).

'An even more massive Adsense clickfraud bot-net discovered:'

Evidence is continuing to appear that nearly all major worldwide bot-nets are being reprogrammed to steal money from Google's advertisers via automated clickfraud. Using those bot-nets to send out spam only had a .001% profit margin or less, but when they target Google's ads instead they can make several dollars per click.

The latest news is that a worldwide bot-net with 34,000 computers infected with "Clickbot.A" has been discovered- entirely dedicted to scamming Google's advertisers. The amount of money this net can generate is staggering. But of course, as usual, Google could care less. They get paid whether the clicks are fraudulent or not.

And we know I'm no lawyer (we can all be thankful for that), but I can't help but feel that paying money upfront, to lock out a competitor. Would fall under anti-competiton business law? 'Dell and Google Team Up'

Under (the) proposed deal, Dell would preinstall the Google search engine on 100 million computers over the next three years. The expectation (is) Google (will) be paying Dell about $1 for each machine going out the door with the preinstall and Google search bar and another 75 cents when search (is) activated. Additional agreements and add-ons might actually range between $5 and $10 (per unit), according to the speculation.

Hi, my name is Google. We here at Google want to be history's all time finest example of: do as we say, not as we do. In fact, we want you to take it for granted. Never even have to give it a second thought. Not bother your tired worn out little brains with the effort. How are we doing?

'Microsoft-Google Browser War Doubles Down'

Google's reported complaints about the new Microsoft Internet Explorer browser, version 7, which comes with an embedded Microsoft search engine. The problem, Google says, is that Microsoft makes it very difficult to swap out this search engine for one from a rival. Especially for inexperienced Internet users, that's tantamount to unfairly locking a search engine to the browser.

"We don't think it's right for Microsoft to just set the default," Marissa Meyer, Google vice president for search products, told The New York Times. "We believe users should choose."

And ..... speaking of joykeeng off (since we are of course already on the subject), we bring you this woeful tale. Sad, pathetic. On a myriad of levels. And scary (on near the same number of levels). Me .... what I take from the story? One can be a little down, a little blue. Then they can take a gander at this poor unfortunate victim of Warhol's fifteen minutes. Though I'm not saying he's a victim per se (just saying). We bring you with trepidation:

No secret da Elmo's prone to hyperbole. Yes there are many great moments in Bush's presidency, even stellar. But this one, standing tall, showing the world, for all to see, for all to hear. That being a righteous gentile comes as easy to a human being as drinking a glass of water (that isn't to say that Juan Cole is currently under a seventy two hour hold AND a suicide watch. But if he is? We'll say a prayer for him. Cuz well ..... that's just the kind of guy I am). Simply things are blue and white. Either yuu'izz for Israel not being annihilated. Or you's ain't.

The stunning beauty of this little song and dance is it's public display. No dreaded secret cabals, no countless fathoms deep underground meet ups. No red phones. Look, see, feast your eyes upon right and wrong. Israel will not cower, the United States will not step aside. Hatred and cowardice will not win out. In this world there truly is right and wrong. Yep, obvious to many, but for a group too large, a basic lesson not known, nor taught.

In fact the opposite, hatred supreme is pumped into the wells, dispersed into the air. Its emergence ...... will be countered, stopped. All of the energy that its practitioners devote to the sickening evil, shall be met with an unflinching shoulder to shoulder stare. We will not blink, nor flinch, nor bend or bow. Neither in the calm clear light of day. Or in the darkest hour of depair. Bring hell to our world? Keep trying, we've seen your kind before. We will answer you with a holler that shatters. A voice that carries a force that you do not want to know.

'Mavs Beat Spurs in Game 7 to Advance'

I said a little while back in comments over at Discarded Lies, that if San Antonio repeats? And Nick Van Exel finally gets a ring? Then solid irrefutable proof, tangible ..... that G*d does in fact exist. Will have come to be in the atomic world (obviously what I know about religion, wouldn't fill a thimble).

So, I guess it's fair to say that Nick isn't going to get a ring, and that it's my fault. Being that we all know the big guy has a rather robust sense of humor. Hey Nick, I'm Sorry! [Then again, it ain't like Nick lit any post season fires (who you gonna call?)].

'Is Google Purging Conservative News Sites?'

(Not that I'm claiming to be a news site) Just try the following search for the two word term: "Anechoic Room." On either MSN, Yahoo, or of course masters of their deranged egomaniacal domain, Google. (And yes, most certainly Google News is different from Google Search).

I don't recall exactly, how many months back I discovered that I'm completely invisible online in the world of Google. And, I can't tell you why (sure, I can guess). Somewherz around a 140 billion market cap, and they don't bother to answer email inquiries. Nice biz model, take the world, answer to no one. Is Google evil? You bet, their practices are disgraceful, putrid even. But what truly sets the fat lil bloated cockroaches Sergey and Larry apart, from all the other life forms on this planet? All the other animals flittering about in their day to day existences, do not pronounce their belief in their own beneficence. Descended from on high, both giver and gift to humanity. Brin and Page haven't a clue that they are bugs. Nothing disturbs their total self deceit. Ever onward wafts the stench of them.

It doesn't take a lot of effort to be Google free. Yes, some effort is required initially. After all MSN and Yahoo's engines have their own shortcomings and quirks. But with practice, the word Google is banished forever from one's personal repertoire [with the added benfit of a better night's sleep (honest)]. In a perfect world mutations of good will won't come hand in hand with rapid/exponential technological change. But this is the way things have become, the way they are. Knowing is the first step. One does NOT have to surrender their self, their person. Nor even place themselves upon an altar. Just say no little web searcher. Just say no. And unlike Nancy's admonition to the chillin of da woyld. Dis one hyar actually dooze woyk. Bellee dat.

[One should also be alarmed by any Google forays into computer language, software, operating systems, desktop, platforms, hardware partnerships (UMD), and any ownership or control of the pipe (wifi WAN's). The finest example of Google smell is of course is their gatekeeping over at The Study of Revenge].

'Blast Wounds Palestinian Intelligence Head'

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - A bomb blast seriously wounded the Palestinian intelligence chief at his headquarters Saturday, in what security officials called an assassination attempt against a key ally of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

A bodyguard was killed and nine other people were wounded in the explosion in an elevator shaft of the heavily guarded compound. The attack came at a time of growing friction between Abbas and the Hamas-led government over control of Palestinian security forces.

He (then) told the officer processing Peek [Patrolman Stephen Dixon] (who then) found Jewett in the parking lot with the gumball machine.

'Iran eyes badges for Jews'

Law would require non-Muslim insignia

Alarm over a new law passed by the Iranian parliament that would require the country's Jews and Christians to wear coloured badges, identify(ing) them and other religious minorities as non-Muslims.

Iranian expatriates living in Canada yesterday confirmed reports that the Iranian parliament, passed a law this week setting a dress code for Iranians, requiring them to wear identical "standard Islamic garments."

(With) Iran's roughly 25,000 Jews hav(ing) to sew a yellow strip of cloth on the front of their clothes, while Christians would wear red badges and Zoroastrians would be forced to wear blue cloth.

Though the identity of the individual in the recent Atwar Bahjat internet snuff video, was another unfortunate, and not her. The underlying truth of the matter remains. That which is depicted is beyond human imagination. No human mind could create such as fiction. Only the dark hearltess insect horde could perpetrate such desecration of human life.

That it is beyond belief, lends credence to those who promote the despicable nature of it's progenitors as being fabrication. Do not be deceived. In all it's hideousness, reality is. The fervor of militant radical Islam pounds Iran's leadership into a state of stupidity that even liberals cannot rationalize (though certainly one would be surprised if they did not try). And daily into the lives of Iranians is hammered ..... kill the Jew! From cradle to grave, the only lesson taught, the only one learned.

(About the specific matter at hand): The oldest reference to using mandatory articles of clothing to identify and distinguish Jews from the rest of society was in 807 CE. In this year, Abbassid caliph Haroun al-Raschid ordered all Jews to wear a yellow belt and a tall, cone-like hat.

Some interesting back and forth [in comments (mostly in support of the article being false)]. 'Dispute Over Report of Iran Requiring Clothing Badges.' Superficially appears to be a center-left blog. And I'll overlook the little bit of name calling directed at us righty folks because it's a lot lower in temperature than that which I use most everyday (in describing me buds on the other side of the aisle).

The blog host condemns those who believe the story, and castigates them for their speedy draw. But I giss he only shoots bullseyes? And strangely his holster work seems of a quite rapid nature. Go figure. It does however contain this interesting link as well, with original IRNA text. 'Iran: Majlis passes bill setting out new dress requirement'

Though not specifically mentioning external idents being required of Jews in Iran. The droll nature of the official Iran govt. news release regarding a bill having to do with legislation of dress. Informs my gut that the story is indeed true.

Blah, blah, blah

Associated Press: All the News That's Fit to Smell

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

It's easy to sit on the sidelines and plink away at Reuters, AFP, AP, sex workers at the Ole Gray Lady, Auntie Beeb, and the L.A. Daily Dog Trainer. Too easy .... one doesn't really even have to aim. That some/many at these establishments even believe they are reporting news, rather than propagandizing?

'Suspected suicide blast kills seven in Russia'

ROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia - (AP) A suspected suicide bomber killed seven people, including a high-level police official, in a southern region of Russia on Wednesday.

Suspected, gosh I love that word. Yeah you could argue they are saying they aren't sure what type of attack/device was used. But the ever present reality is that they would have us believe that a bag of evil fairy dust was somehow misplaced. And has been/is now being sprinkled about the world.

Ingushetia’s Deputy Interior Minister Kostoyev, two of his bodyguards and four civilians
(oops) were killed when a sedan packed with explosives blew up. Kostoyev, a target of attacks in the past, had been traveling in an armored car.

Ingushetia, next to war-ravaged [war bad, war no good, war caused by evil rich white people (only; see Booosh)] Chechnya in southern Russia’s North Caucasus, has been plagued by militant (never terrorists or murderers. Ever. Just good leetle militants. Harmless really) attacks.

Poverty, corruption and religious persecution have fueled anger at the authorities (oooh, the authorities. Run away, run away) in the North Caucasus, an ethnically mixed strip of republics, most of which have large Muslim populations.

Being poor now a license to murder. Us being just a little upset at Islamist death and destruction, and criticising Muslims for these insidious acts? Makes them want to do it more. Oh those poor, poor blameless folks, whatever have they done to deserve this? Mind's a boggle.

The region is troubled by violence in some cases linked to the persistent conflict in neighboring Chechnya, where two wars have been fought in the past 12 years between federal forces and separatist rebels who increasingly have espoused extremist Islamic ideology.

Increasingly? Hmmmm. Increasingly. I guess this is just the prelude. Nothing to get excited about. I mean what's a few hundred dead people in a theater, or in a school filled with children? After all, they haven't even gotten started yet, right, this is just the beginning. Nothing really to worry about, why in no time at all we'll be used to it. They're just being nice to us, we should be thankful.

The Cannibal Caliphate's Piece de Resistance

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

So many bodies piled up in World War II. In the fields of Europe, on islands in the Pacific, in Russia. Yet through all the carnage, the depravity inflicted by the Nazis on their captives, strikes an eternal dark chord.

A new day dawns. Today, this minute, this very second. A darkness beyond all reason, beyond any measure. Mohammed's butcher shop is now open for business. Serving up a dish fit for a prophet.

Some escapees from the crematoria have been known to utter a phrase or thought, that G*d had then taken a holiday. Where ever G*d may have been in those days of light dimmed to naught. We will not depend upon him to fight Islam's insects. We will chase back the Muslim monsters. We will send Mohammed's mutants back to the recesses of hell from which they came.

Leni Riefenstahl Lives

Want to get a serious eerie case of the willies? This clip from Memri is like going back in time. Being in Nuremberg in 1934, during filming of Triumph of the Will. Obviously lacking the scale, composition, lighting, editing, and soundtrack that made Riefenstahl's magnum opus' derangement so devastating. But still possesssing the raw distillate essence. Will Israel or the U.S. launch an attack on Iran? Just watch the first minute of the clip even, and tell me no. And then I get to call you an idiot.

Jews’ declining population Vs Zionism dream

In the on going brutal Israeli occupation of Palestine, one of the less publicized problems facing Israel is that the demographics of the Jewish population are going horribly wrong for the dream of Zionism. Israel has always relied on large influxes of ‘Jewish’ people from around the world to boost its population in relation to the Palestinians.

The best decade for Zionism was the 1990’s, when 1 million people migrated to Israel. Since 2001, however, large numbers of Israelis started emigrating to Russia, Germany and the USA. For the first time in Israel’s history, there was a net loss of people of over 11,000 people.

The Palestinian population on the other hand is rising at around twice the rate of the Jewish, despite Israel’s attempts to make life under occupation as intolerable as possible.

Rawmahlama ding dong comes to London.

'Prince Charles opens Bedouin tent at London peace center'

LONDON - Prince Charles on Thursday officially opened London's most unlikely new landmark - a large Bedouin tent. Created of out goat hair, carpeted with rugs. The structure stands in the garden of the former St. Ethelburga's Church . Built in Saudi Arabia and designed to withstand London's regular rain showers - (it) will be used for events promoting interfaith dialogue.

Charles: "If only we could understand each other's groupings ..... we might perhaps reduce the level of conflict and violence and misunderstanding." The opening received messages of support from former U.S. President Bill Clinton and rock star Bono.

Clinton praised the center: "As the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 in my country so painfully demonstrated, there are still those who place their difference above our common humanity, who prefer to demonise people who are unlike them rather than learn from one another."

AUSTIN, Texas - The head of the world's largest chip maker on Wednesday unveiled a mobile personal computer designed to provide affordable learning for students around the world. Intel Chief Paul Otellini said the $400 machines - code-named "Eduwise" - will feature built-in wireless and will be able to run Windows or Linux.

Many high-tech companies, including Intel rival Advanced Micro Devices Inc. and Microsoft, have announced similar initiatives in an effort close the digital divide between developed and developing nations.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor Nicholas Negroponte's nonprofit One Laptop Per Child association hopes to begin providing $100 laptops to millions of children in China, India, Egypt, Brazil, Thailand, Nigeria and Argentina by early 2007. Tentative designs call for a machine that uses one-tenth of the power of conventional laptops, a 7-inch screen and the Linux operating system. The project's partners include Google and AMD.

Me, I still haven't gotten around to reading a certain futurist's take on warfare as practised not in the past or present. Possibly it at least touches upon the actual data transmission?

COLUMBUS, Ohio (Reuters) -- A double murderer was put to death in Ohio Tuesday but not until after one of his veins collapsed, causing the condemned man to sit up and tell his executioners, "It's not working," officials said.

Spokeswoman Andrea Dean said the execution was delayed about 90 minutes because technicians had trouble initially finding a site in Clark's arm for the intravenous line carrying the chemicals. Then shortly after the poisons were supposed to have been pumping into his body, she said, he sat up saying, "It's not working. It's not working."

'Armenian airliner plunges into Black Sea'

Plunges ...... or was it pushed? "All 113 on board killed; officials believe stormy weather may be to blame." The tag line gets it right, but the story pushes weather as the only possibility. That those good leetle terrorists couldn't possibly have had anything to do with the plane's downing. The story's last paragraph exposes those excrementalists AP, in their usual craft:

Two Sochi-bound Russian planes crashed in August 2004, one near the central city of Tula and the other in the Rostov region, when alleged Chechen terrorists detonated bombs on board. Ninety people were killed.

When is a terrorist a terrorist? Hmmm, bombs on board an airplane, ninety people dead (sounds like a performance artist to me).

G*d Bless the Mexican-American Immigrant.

You don't have the same feelings? Fine. I grew up here in Southern California, immigrants from Mexico have always been a part of the world that I live in. In the first grade, or as an adult, my neighbors, co-workers, friends. Largely treated as second class citizens, underpaid, overworked, with nary a complaint or a weakening of their resolve. Bending but never breaking. No matter how tedious, numbing, or even brutal the assigned task. They were there on station. Not as political partisans, nor laughably as terrorists. But as fellow members of the community. Persons who I look at with great admiration and respect.

If the left, and the right want to continue to see this issue only through a partisan filter. Then no clarification, streamlining, or reform will take place. Near fifty years I have seen these human beings shoulder more than their fair share of the load. In fields, factories, and restaurants. Contributing not just with their backs, or even with their wallets. But giving with their hearts and their spirit as well. Heaven forbid they speak up for themselves and take pride, for even a day.
