Imam once rejected a screenwriter’s remark that he is a political party unto himself, but he occasionally blurts out strong political opinions. He said Egyptians are [...]
“Last Nov. 13, U.S. soldiers found 173 incarcerated men, some of them emaciated and showing signs of torture, in a secret bunker in an Interior Ministry compound in central Baghdad.”

“Iran could tempt Mideast states to go nuclear” (Angry Arab: And Israel had tempted Mideast states to go nuclear DECADES AGO. Did you hear that Schiff? And could Arab newspaper really decrease their excessive citations of Schiff’s articles, please? I know that they think that it is quite “modern” and “enlightened” to read the Israeli [...]
“The atrocities committed against the Armenian people of the Ottoman Empire during W.W.I are called the Armenian Genocide. Genocide is the organized killing of a people for the express purpose of putting an end to their collective existence. Because of its scope, genocide requires central planning and a machinery to implement it. This makes genocide [...]
The epitome of Chutzpah: “Palestinians need an alternative to Hamas, one which works for peace and the interest of the Palestinian people.” What?

Harvard “SophomoreÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s New Book Contains Passages Strikingly Similar to 2001 Novel”
Human Trafficking: “Germany, Greece and France are among about a dozen countries identified as having a “high” incidence of acting as transit countries. Ten countries are named as the top destinations for trafficking victims: Belgium, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Thailand, Turkey and the US. Britain is on the “high” index of destination [...]
“An ethnic Armenian teenager was stabbed to death in a metro station in central Moscow on Saturday night – the latest attack in a growing wave of racist violence in Russia.”
I still find the mentality of the White Man appearing in the UK press‘ coverage of Zimbabwe.
“Bush ignored intelligence on Iraqi weapons, says ex-CIA officer” (Nooooooo. No way. Bush would do that?)
The new Iraqi speaker-under-foreign-occupation, Dawud Al-Mashhadani was a member of the (Salafite) Supreme Committee for Da`wah and [Religious] Guidance. Enjoy the “new” Iraq.
Fu’ad Sanyurah:“Why don’t you normalize relations with Israel?We will upon the finalization of the peace process.Didn’t Hizbullah kidnap three Israeli soldiers in 2000?Didn’t Israel kill tens of thousands of civilians?”(If Lally Weymouth’s family did not own the Washington Post, do you think that she would have ever had a journalist career?) (thanks Amal)

“Don’t dream about full exits. The military is in Iraq for the long haul.”
Iraqi Musician, Nasir Shammah is losing it. He told Al-Mustaqbal newspaper that he can predict “events, times, and things” and even deaths. OK, Nasir. Play the `Ud, now.
Sultan abu Al-`Aynayn is increasingly allowing himself to serve as a tool for Hariri Inc and Abu Mazen (tell him I said that, Mirvat).
Ilyas `Atallah, head of the Hariri Left Movement, would do anything to get before the cameras. He is worse than Sen. Schumer of New York. `Atallah used to beg journalists to put him on the air–and he did that in phone calls to live programs. Now, `Atallah is willing to invent assassination plots against his [...]
