Today Hillary said that the US gave Iraq “the precious gift” of freedom. Here is an example: “Iraq is resisting U.S. proposals for a pair of new bilateral security agreements, saying it expects Washington to compromise on “sensitive issues,” including the right to imprison Iraqi citizens unilaterally, Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said Monday. Other problematic [...]
“Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) on Monday said the Shin Bet security service has recently tightened its policy of issuing permits to cancer patients from Gaza seeking treatment in Israel, Army Radio reported. The human rights organization said that the Shin Bet ignored all 12 requests that were submitted over the past two weeks.”
Why Zionism-is-racism. They did not realize that he was a White Man: “Five years after British filmmaker James Miller was fatally shot by Israel Defense Forces troops in the Gaza Strip, Israel is poised to pay the family some NIS 12 million in compensation.” Israeli officials asserted that they thought that he was one of [...]
“Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton confirmed Monday that as president she would be willing to use nuclear weapons against Iran if it were to launch a nuclear attack on Israel.”
I was told two weeks ago based on press accounts that the Syrian Minister of Interior was going to hold a press conference to announce the results of the Syrian investigation of the assassination of `Imad Mughniyyah. I had a bet that no press conference would be held, and no results would be announced.
Khalid Mish`al is developing the trickery and deceptive style of Yasir `Arafat. He said that accepts Israel’s existence in 1967 borders without recognizing Israel. This is like fasting while eating at an all-you-can-eat buffet.
“But implementation of the $40 million project, which was handed to British Aerospace Engineering (BAE) without a bidding process, has fallen short, according to more than a dozen people involved in the program and interviewed by NEWSWEEK. Of 19 Human Terrain members operating in five teams in Iraq, fewer than a handful can be described [...]
The sinister American-Saudi-Iranian “understanding” in Iraq.
Pushers. (thanks Hicham)
“I have previously written about my frustration at the way Muslims deploy their energies. The silence on human rights abuses – especially of women – is something Muslims, and I include myself here, should be ashamed of. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to give the country its full title, is custodian of the two holy [...]
I saw on TV the leader of one of the Tribal Revival Councils: he was the one from Salah Ad-Din. Almost to a person, those tribal leaders are criminal thugs–and it shows. They worked for Saddam, and then for Zarqawi, and now they work for the “leader of the free world.” Are you not proud?
“a pro-Israel group’s plan to rewrite history on Wikipedia” (thanks Maryam)
Abu Mazen told Gizelle Khuri on Al-Arabiya TV that AIPAC wants peace.
“”No to women’s driving because it will deprive foreign drivers from the satisfaction of being alone with our women, daughters and sisters …. and will affect their economy (…) it would limit the number of foreign drivers (…)whose presence is a healthy phenomenon allowing our children to learn how to count from one to ten [...]
“While he has sought to reject being labeled, Mr. Lugo has socialist tendencies resembling those of South American leaders elected in the past decade, including Evo Morales of Bolivia and Hugo ChÃƒÂ¡vez of Venezuela.” “Socialist tendencies?? Are you kidding me? In your backyard? Why don’t you send the troops NOW?
Don’t your like this headline in the New York Times? “81 Die in Clashes Between Islamists and Troops in Somalia.” Troops? What troops?
When Iraqi puppet prime minister, Nuri Al-Maliki, visited Brussels to meet with NATO leaders last week, he told Al-Arabiya TV that he did not come to ask “for foreign troops.” He said that Iraqi troops can take care of security in Iraq but that they need only technical assistance. As for the presence of more [...]
“He added: “Haynes, Feith, Yoo, Bybee, Gonzalez and – at the apex – Addington, should never travel outside the US, except perhaps to Saudi Arabia and Israel. They broke the law; they violated their professional ethical code. In future, some government may build the case necessary to prosecute them in a foreign court, or in [...]
I will be submitting a bill to US Congress to compel the Iraqi people to pay for the sweets and flowers that they will be obliged to greet US troops with. It is only fair.
In the memoirs of Marwan Kanafani (Arafat’s aide and translator), he said that it really used to hurt Abu Mazen when Arafat would constantly refer to him as Hamid Karzai. So please, don’t call him Hamid Karzai.
