Check out the new clustermap that Neal has added to the site (below left). There is more data.
The Washington Post had an article about this. And I found the full Arabic text of this letter (ostensibly from Al-Qa`idah leader, `Atiyyah, in Bin Laden’s command to Abu Mus`ab Zarqawi) on the website of the Center for Combating Terrorism at West Point. I don’t have time to study it or examine it carefully (I [...]
Do the pro-Saudi journalists think that they are being courageous when they attack Qatar in…SAUDI media? Do they need medals for their dubious courage?
When the US government resorts to “creative methods”, you know that people need to seek the bomb shelters: “Rice to propose ‘creative means’ to bolster Abbas, weaken Hamas”
The puppet has spoken. Speaking in Arabic on AlJazeera, Abu Mazen said that “America forced a siege” on the Palestinian people. He said that not a single penny can arrive to Palestine. He did not explain how US money is arriving to him and to the pockets of the “Presidential Guards”.
It is interesting that Western media often find “external” hands but do not even notice the presence of foreign occupation troops: “As a hurricane of Taliban violence tears across Afghanistan – the latest suicide bombing killed 10 people in Kabul on Saturday – accusations of foreign support have centred on Pakistan, where fighters can shelter, [...]
Storm troopers of the Al-Azhar clerics (supported by the Mubarak dictatorship) order the confiscation and ban on Muhammad Fattuh’s book that displeased clerics. (thanks Storm)
My mother is reading (and favoring) Al-Akhbar but is critical of it. Too-one sided, she complains (never any criticisms of Syria, Iran, or Hizbullah).
Sami Kulayb replies to `Abdur-Rahman Ar-Rashid.
Israel occupies (or “captures” in the language of the New York Times) yet another piece of Lebanese territory. All US media are reporting that Israel has withdrawn today from Lebanese territory. Not true, of course. Not only does Israel continues to occupy the “seven villages”, Shib`a farm, Kfar Shuba hills but Israel has now occupied [...]
US foreign policy and the Palestinian Quisling. What is happening in Palestine is an outrage. It is at some level unprecedented. Not really. The Zionist movement always relied on Palestinian agents and collaborators. If you look at the early history of the Zionist movement in Palestine, we know that the Nashashibi family confederation (backed by [...]
When-Hummus-Hit-The-Fan in Lebanon. Yesterday, I received this email from an anonymous source in Beirut:“yesterday a clash initiated at cornish al mazraa between amal movement and al mustaqbal movement .i was not so far from that clash i live near by .the clash was in beirut kornish al mazraa near abdel nasser mosque . we heard [...]
“Fadhl Chalak, the former president of LebanonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Council for Development and Reconstruction (which is what war had already turned the Ministry of Planning into, back in 1977), charges that the government has intentionally stalled the reconstruction effort. Mr. Chalak, who was instrumental in completing the reconstruction of Beirut after the civil war, says he believes [...]
State of Occupied Iraq.
Look below. Neal has added a new feature to the site. You can see a map of visitors on the site.
“Pablo Picasso’s “Woman in White,” (1923), left, and Arshile Gorky’s “The Artist and His Mother,” (circa 1926-36).”
“An American convicted of running a private prison in Afghanistan as part of a freelance hunt for terrorists left the country Saturday after his release from an Afghan jail, officials said.”
Don’t cry for him, Argentina. “Jordan’s King Risks Shah’s Fate, Critics Warn.”
The Middle East Studies Association (in its annual meeting in Boston in November) has invited this year the Saudi ambassador in the US (and Bin Laden sponsor) to address members, and another panel features a key puppet of US occupation in Iraq, Muwaffaq Rubay`i. What is going on? Will the chief of Jordanian mukhabarat be [...]
Why can’t the collaborators collaborate, wonder US officials. “U.S. Military Is Still Waiting For Iraqi Forces to ‘Stand Up’: Security Personnel Increase, but Insurgency Is Unabated”
