So Walid Jumblat, who now supports the Camp David accords, said that he only met Hengry Kissinger to tell him that Kamal Jumblat was “not a radical.” This is a good introduction to Jumblat’s jumbled mind.
“The graduation of nearly 1,000 new Iraqi army soldiers in restive Anbar province took a disorderly turn Sunday when dozens of the men declared that they would refuse to serve outside their home areas, according to U.S. and Iraqi military authorities.”
This is NOT a safe cause: “The international human rights group Physicians for Human Rights appealed Monday to Interim Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and President Moshe Katsav on behalf of dozens of Sudanese refugees who fled the war-ravaged region of Darfur to seek asylum in Israel, where they are currently jailed.

“Bolivia’s president took a big step towards nationalising his country’s gas and oil industries yesterday, ordering troops to occupy gas fields and threatening to evict foreign companies unless they agreed to surrender ownership to the state.”

They are mourning Palestinian mother, `Itaf Yusuf, 41, who was shot by Israeli occupation soldiers. Her daughter was injured.

“Israeli soldiers accused of raping 11-year-old”
Look at the racist anti-Syrian (people) headline in the Hariri rag, Al-Mustaqbal.
I never thought that Stephen Colbert is funny. His “thing” the other night was quite unfunny, I thought. But more unfunny than Colbert was the Bush impersonator.
