If it succeeds, in turning criticism of religion, and its main beneficiaries into "defamation", we might not be free to express our condemnation. In this case an instance of treachery about a sentence just handed down in Saudi Arabia against a 74-year-old woman, condemned to 45 lashes, three months in prison, and deportation to her native Jordan, for having two male visitors in her home who were not relatives.
The OIC dislikes the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. They disapprove of it because they believe that religion, not excluding their version of it, is a systematic violator of human rights. Not the least being the rights of women who are one-half of the worlds, a fact the OIC does not notice, or if it does it applies religious ethics to solve the problem which often results in the belief that; one woman is worth half a man. The OIC is trying to change the Universal Declaration of Human Rights accordingly.
[At present, nationalist parties such as the BNP may legally criticize Islam and not fall foul of the race laws - this new proposal would change that. As pointed out in this newspaper column, criticism of Islam would also worsen the situation for women since it would be illegal to object to religious sanctions oppressing them. Another issue is that a number of religions criticize other religions. The one that raises the initial criticism or the other that criticized that religion for its defamation, the whole situation is absurd. ]
The top U.S. commander in the Pacific, Adm. (-------), told senators at a hearing that there was a "high probability" that the United States could knock down a North Korean missile. Gen. (-----), the U.S. commander in South Korea, said the threat "is real."
The comments come as North Korea reportedly prepares for what many believe will be a long-range missile test in early April. North Korea says it will launch a communications satellite, and defends the launch by saying other countries have been pursuing peaceful space programs.
The Pope's remarks about condoms, and a recent fervor over his lifting of the 20-year excommunication of a British bishop who has questioned the Holocaust, has left him looking isolated and out of touch, prompting calls for a radical shake-up of the way the Holy See delivers its message.
[Cannot the Pope quiet his Vatican insiders? Do not they realize that he has direct contact with God? These dissident Vatican insiders speak audaciously and capriciously.]
Nevertheless, Conservative MP Julian Brazier said, "I have always accepted that condoms have some role to play in fighting sexually-transmitted infections.
"But it is very sad that the authors of this document do not seem to understand that the problem starts with growing levels of sexual activity by people with multiple partners.
"This campaign is contributing to the further growth of the problem rather than to public health."
[Some rare sense from a carrot driven horse]
By law, the U.S. would have to cease providing billions of dollars in foreign aid to Israel if it determined the country had a nuclear weapons program. That is because the so-called Symington Amendment, passed in 1976, bars assistance to countries developing technology for nuclear weapons proliferation.
Given the U.S.'s long history of selective blindness when it comes to Israeli nukes, it is unlikely that the Joint Operating Environment 2008 report compiled by the Army amount to much more than minor distraction from the Zionist destruction.
[This is one kind of the many diversions Zionists are all for.]
"We are evolving every year, every decade. That's a fact, whether it is to the intensity of the sun, whether it is to, as a chiropractor, walking on cement versus anything else, whether it is running shoes or high heels, of course we are evolving to our environment. Nevertheless, that is not relevant and that is why I refused to answer the question. The interview was about our science and tech strategy, which is strong."
The MP from Cambridge, Ont., is a key figure in the controversy over the science-funding crunch in Canada and, in particular, cuts in the January budget that left many senior researchers scrambling to find the money to continue their experiments. Some had expressed concern that Mr. Goodyear is suspicious of science, perhaps because he is a creationist.
On Tuesday, Liberal science critic Marc Garneau said that believing in evolution is not a job requirement for the science minister.
[Yes, understanding evolution is a job requirement for the science minister of a western nation! This retard should acknowledge, as even the Pope does, that evolution is a reality. How far we have fallen/devolved]
Children recruited to some London gangs - known as "Tynees" or "youngers" - must also complete initiation rituals, which can include the rape or even murder of rival gang members, according to a report.
Growing numbers of younger children are joining gangs to win respect and recognition from their peers, the report said.
[While liberals still dream of making Third World refugees into model English people, the truth is that it is easier to drag everyone down that to elevate those with lower natures. Our population changes and is replaced by these animals.]
In the research, 447 case files of youngsters aged from 12 to 17 were studied. All the files involved cases in which the perpetrator was convicted of a crime for which the maximum jail sentence is 8 years or more. These were murder, manslaughter, robbery with violence, extortion, arson, public acts of violence and sexual crimes.
Only just over one-third (37 percent) of the convicted youngsters are white Dutch. Two-thirds are of immigrant origin, meaning that they themselves or their mothers were born abroad.
[ These immigrants should not be in Holland. It is inhumane. ]
whats so wrong with their home, and why do they carry the morals of a failed land in to a charitable and noble one?
The fact is that the Israeli Prime Minister-to-be has made it perfectly clear there will be no two-state solution; and he has planted a tree on Golan to show the Syrians they will not get it back. Now he has brought into the cabinet a man who sees even the Arabs of Israel as second-class citizens.
Lieberman's first visit to Washington will be a gem. AIPAC - posing as an Israeli lobby when in fact it works for the Likudists will fight for him and Secretary Clinton will have to greet him warmly at the State Department. Who knows, he might even suggest to her that she imposes a loyalty test for American minorities as well, which would mean demanding an oath of faithfulness from U.S. president Obama himself. The possibilities are endless.
[If Israel fully and honestly embraces National Socialism and kicks out their Arabs then they are setting a fantastic example. However, we must also hope that these Zionists will stop being fully in favor of non-white immigration into white nations and not scream genocide if we do as they do. I wonder what the various Jewish organizations that condemn nationalism abroad have to say about the developments within the Israeli government, something retarded and hypocritical no doubt. ]
The eastern European country's OPPZ union has called for a limit on workers from nearby ex-Soviet states, as it anticipates a steady stream of its own citizens returning from other nations, Reuters has reported.

In a federal court decision issued late Wednesday, a judge said that the "fog of war" will not protect military contractor CACI-spelled C-A-C-I. The court ruled a tort case brought by four Iraqi civilians could proceed. The men gave reports of detainment, torture, and eventually release from Abu Ghraib prison without charges for a crime. Katherine Gallagher, an attorney with the Center for Constitutional Rights, is representing the four Iraqi plaintiffs. She says this ruling indicates that several other outstanding tort cases against CACI, and military contractor Blackwater, will likely move forward as well.
"Wednesday's ruling has large ramifications for all these cases, particularly when all of these contractors are raising the argument that they are immune, or share some immunity of government, by working in a, quote, 'combat zone.' This decision really breaks down that argument very, very strongly, saying 'you're contractors, you're working in Iraq for profit, and you are not the government."
In their civil lawsuit, plaintiffs are seeking damages for physical and mental abuse, but Gallagher says that monetary gains are only part what the Iraqi victims and their families want.
"The first thing that victims of torture and abuse are looking for is validation of what happened to them. Therefore, to have a US Court recognize that they were tortured and abused, will be a big part of victory for them. And shedding light on what happens in them so that it never happens again and that is part of their quest for justice."
Because the Virginia court is in the same legal circuit as at least two other ongoing tort cases against war contractors, this ruling will be binding in those suits as well.

Attorney General Eric Holder announced that, to better allocate scarce law enforcement resources, medical marijuana dispensaries operating in accordance with state law will not be the targets of Federal Raids. California and 12 other states have legalized medical marijuana. But under the Bush administration, the Drug Enforcement Administration raided dispensaries, because marijuana is still illegal under Federal law. Elizabeth Frantes of San Francisco is a medical Marijuana patient. She welcomes Holder's announcement, but says it doesn't go far enough.
"The change in policy doesn't really address the key issue which is that Marijuana should be removed off schedule altogether. The weakness in the California law has always been that producing marijuana still leads you to prosecution. And since there are no legitimate sources of marijuana, the infiltration of organized crime has pretty much been inevitable."
Frantes wants to see patients and their caregivers to be able to legally grow their own marijuana under federal law.
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson supported the death penalty as recently as 2006, when he pursued the Democratic Presidential nomination. But Tuesday night, he signed a bill to abolish capital punishment:
"Regardless of my personal opinion about the death penalty, I do not have confidence in the criminal justice system as it currently operates to be the final arbiter when it comes to who lives and who dies for their crime."
As reasons for his decision, Richardson cited manipulation of DNA evidence and a lack of competent counsel for all defendants. He referred to the over-representation of African Americans and Latinos on death row. The state's death penalty abolition law goes into effect in July, meaning any murders committed before then could still qualify for the death penalty. Earlier this month a similar bill narrowly failed to pass the Senate in Maryland. Four other states have similar abolition bills pending.
"Starting right here, right now, we are saying no more. We are saying, 'Give us our money back!' And we will not stop until we get it back. To those running to cash their ill-gotten checks: you disgust us. By any measure, you are disgraced professional losers."
The bill passed 328 to 93. During debate the question of who holds responsibility for the loophole allowing these bonuses was forefront. Many Republicans blame Democratic Senator Chris Dodd of Connecticut for changing last month's stimulus legislation to make some bonuses legal. Dodd in turn, says he was asked to do so by the Obama Administration.
One house and three other structures owned by Palestinians near Jerusalem were demolished by Israeli authorities today. The demolitions took place in Al Eziryiah, a Palestinian town outside east Jerusalem. Israel says the home was demolished because it was built in an Israeli area without the needed documentation. Homeowner Rabie' Al Qamari disagrees
"My house is legal I have all needed document, anyway the house is built a Palestinian controlled area not and Israeli area, when my son asked them for the demolishing order they beat him up"
Since February Israel has issued demolition orders for more than 150 Palestinian homes near Jerusalem.

OK. So I get it. Everyone's livid about the AIG executives receiving $165 Million of contractually guaranteed bonuses. The elites in the media and Congress are telling us how this is an example of yet another greedy corporation, run by criminals, and that they need to be punished for their excesses. What few are paying attention to is how the White House is providing cover for the real scam - more than 400 times larger than the bonuses that have everyone so bent out of shape.
Being a New Yorker, I've come to know a sucker's game when I see one, and this looks an awful lot like a giant Three-Card Monte game. Except this scam isn't for $20 or $50, or even for $100, like many street scams. This little game of hide-the-crime is being played with $170 Billion.
Robert Gibbs says no one knew about the $165 Million in bonuses until just last week, and, even though we all know that's a lie, no one really calls them on it, and the White House gets to share in the rage. In fact, Comrade Obama and his team are leading the anti-capitalist jeers. I think there are some really interesting aspects to this entire maneuver.
1. If the federal government invested $170 Billion into AIG expecting them to NOT pay bonuses they are contractually obligated to pay, then they would be encouraging AIG to break the law.
2. If the federal government thought that the contractual obligations of the company were out of line or unsustainable, then the company should have been encouraged to go to bankruptcy court, where contracts that are out of line or unsustainable may be renegotiated legally.
3. If the federal government invested $170 Billion without knowing what the obligations of the company are, then they are the most ignorant investors in the world and Tim Geithner is a moron.
This is why people who aren't morons engage in an activity known as "due diligence."
So now that we've blown their cover story out of the water, what do you suppose the REAL crime is that they want covered up? How about a $93 Billion transfer to Goldman Sachs and a handful of foreign banks? I reported on it last night here, but the question remains... why is everyone in Washington and the mainstream media apoplectic over $165 Million, while an amount more than 400 TIMES that, or $93 Billion, is quietly being transferred to a cabal of international bankers? And why does NO ONE ELSE seem to be connecting paymaster Hank Paulsen with his former employer Goldman Sachs?
Does no one think it's a big deal that the Treasury Secretary paid his former business associates though a middleman... or that the new administration seems to be protecting him and diverting attention? Meanwhile, Comrade Obama and his team smile like the murderer with a body in his trunk getting a speeding ticket and being sent on his way.

The FT/Harris polls published by the Financial Times showed more than three-quarters of Italians and Britons and a majority in France, Germany, Spain and the United States would support their governments asking immigrants to leave.
The results of the poll suggest rising unemployment could push the issue of immigration up the political agenda in Europe and may boost support for far-right parties.
[This summation will boost support for nationalism. If our government were not to be fascist sellouts and more ethical, they would heed the wishes of the citizens on a vital issue like this.]
In the 15-minute interview, arranged by an intermediary for CNN, Hanafi repeated the Taliban's pledge to keep girls out of public schools.
"In my opinion," he added, "Taliban aren't allowing girls to go to schools because Taliban want women to preserve their respect by staying in their homes, not to work as laborers for others."
The west should not mimic this unwelcomed culture under any circumstance. Our own culture is modern, peaceful and somewhat naïve. The liberation of innocents from terror in other lands exhausts us as we constantly despair simultaneously from terrors of addicts and dolts in our own land, making us overwrought.

As the sixth anniversary of the start of the Iraq War approaches, U.S., British, and German vets testified about their service in Iraq and Afghanistan this weekend at Winter Soldier Europe in Freiburg. Organized by Iraq Veterans Against the War, the vets made their eye witness accounts known to the public. One of those vets is the U.K.'s Martin Webber. Webber served in Northern Ireland, Sierra Leone and Iraq - and was arrested after filming the beating of Iraqis by British soldiers in 2004. He was never charged, and left the Army afterward. Webber talked about what he's had to do to cope with post traumatic stress disorder, and what its like to return to civilian life after so much war.
Martin Webber's been working on a film called "Diary of a Disgraced Soldier""

Hannah Shah had been raped by her father and faced a forced marriage. She fled, became a Christian and now fears for her life.
We are all too familiar with the persecution of Christians. Once society accepts Sharia law as an "alternative lifestyle," largely out of intimidation, the women who are unlucky enough to be born into Islam will have no way out.
Hannah blames what is sometimes called political correctness for this debacle: “My teachers had thought they were doing the right thing, they thought it showed ‘cultural sensitivity’ by bringing in someone from my own community to ‘help’, but it was the worst thing they could have done to me. This happens a lot."
Hannah says her story is not unique, that there are many other girls in British Muslim families who are oppressed and married off against their will, or who have secretly become Christians but are too afraid to speak out. She wants their voices to be heard and for Britain, the land of her birth, to realize the hidden misery of these women.
guilty as the word for sin.

That translates into 2,984 residents per every 100,000 over the age of 12 - or 15,120 - according to the 2008 epidemiology report by the District's HIV/AIDS office.
"Our rates are higher than West Africa," said Shannon L. Hader, director of the District's HIV/AIDS Administration, who once led the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's work in Zimbabwe. "They're on par with Uganda and some parts of Kenya."

Women are reporting a rising tide of brutal homophobic attacks and murders and the widespread use of what they local population has termed 'corrective rape’ as a form of punishment.
The report, commissioned by international NGO Action Aid, called for South Africa's criminal justice system to recognize the rapes as hate crimes, as police are reportedly failing to take action over the spiraling violence.
[Does this crime require a demographic, is it any different having an adjective name. It is an excuse that the rape is "corrective" and it is really simply a way to get social approval from the public for wrongful indulgences.]
And figures from 20 forces, covering more than half the population of England and Wales, show that foreigners committed or were accused of more than 70,000 offenses last year pointing to an estimated nationwide total of well over 100,000 offenses, if all 43 forces had provided figures.
The steep increase in crimes committed by foreigners comes despite an overall fall in the number of crimes recorded by police during the five-year period.

The idea was to see how many of the students followed the cheater's example - to see if blatant dishonesty boosted cheating among students generally and it did, dramatically. However, the psychologists added another twist to the experiment: sometimes they had the actor wear the T-shirt of a rival university, other times not. They wanted to see if the cheater's group identity, classmate or outsider, influenced the level of copycat cheating. That is, would students cheat more or less, when they saw a rival cheat, as compared to seeing a compatriot cheat?
The results were apparent. Fellow classmates had much more influence than outsiders did. Indeed, seeing a rival cheat actually lowered the level of overall cheating slightly compared to students who simply cheated on their own initiative, without any prodding. These findings argue against the "cold calculation" theory of cheating. After all, if the students only weighed the ‘can I get away with cheating?’ factor, then they might equally have been likely to choose cheating influenced by both ally and outsider.
[We learn by example, sometimes by force, while those within civilized society will be less likely. All the while, those who cannot discern proper from wrong, will follow in the footsteps of those they compare themselves who exploit ethics, whether it be Bernie Madoff for young aspiring Jews, or Barack Obama for the young and contempt. There is also a great deal of evidence suggesting that the presence of diverse groups increases cheating as one group will look for ways to exploit people particularly from another group if they can get away with it, leading to a higher level of cheating even within groups. It is something definable by only the higher castes, which are not often in the higher economic class but often subsides through unnecessary class warfare.]

When the market is down 45% and seems to have no bottom, what's a good way to instill some investor confidence? How about showing faith in the free market by NOT giving Billion$$ to corporate concerns? Today that happened, quite by accident, and the market loved it.
It sure wasn't because the government acted at all like responsible adults. Comrade Obama and his lapdogs Reid and Pelosi are more than happy to use taxpayer moneys to buy influence in corporate America. The problem is that corporate America knows these irresponsible thugs would be awful business partners, and they are becoming more and more wary of the "help" that the government is offering.
So today Citi sent a message that they want no more of what Comrade Obama is offering... and the market enjoyed one of the best days since our November Revolution. Let's hope corporate America wakes up before it's too late.
It's kind of refreshing to see a politician that is so openly corrupt as our new First Comrade Obama. However, earlier rumors that he and Zimbabwean strongman Robert Mugabe were working on some kind of joint-project rap album themed around monetary policy title "Print Me Some Money, Bitch" appear to be unfounded...
FBI raids office of D.C. CTO, Obama appointee
Federal agents this morning are searching the office Washington, D.C.'s Chief Technology Officer.
The search of the office at 1 Judiciary Square is part of "an ongoing investigation," said a spokeswoman for the FBI's D.C. Field Office, Lindsay Gotwin, said.
She said two men, Yusuf Acar and Sushil Bansal, had been arrested.
Acar is an information security officer who was also, according to online requests for proposals, responsible for contracting. Bansal is listed on the city's procurement website as the CEO of the Advanced Integrated Technologies Corporation, which was awarded two technology contracts last year worth a total of $350,000.
The Washington Post and WTOP Radio report that the men are being held on bribery charges.
The outgoing Chief Technology Officer, Vivek Kundra, was appointed last week Chief Information Officer by the Obama administration. His last day at the city government office was March 4, a spokeswoman for D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty, Leslie Kershaw, said. He was appointed to the Washington post in 2007, and held it when Bansal's contract was awarded.
"We know the FBI is over there but that's all we know," said a staffer in the D.C. CTO's office, Mario Field, who was working from a separate location. Another source familiar with the raid said the FBI had sent all staffers other than senior executives home for the day. WTOP reported that agents are searching the 9th and 10th floors of the building.
A White House spokesman had no immediate comment.
D.C. mayor's spokeswoman Kershaw said, "Our office has been alerted of FBI's being at CTO office, but we cannot comment until it's over and we get more details."
No one answered a phone listed in Acar's name.
Abousifian Abdelrazik is currently out of jail and has been living at the Canadian embassy since last April. But the Canadian government will not issue him travel documents to come home unless he has a plane ticket. The catch is... without any money - and because it is illegal under Canadian law for others to purchase the ticket for anyone on the UN terrorism watch list - Abdelrazik is stuck. But at a press conference today, supporters of Abdelrazik announced that in an act of civil disobedience, over 100 people from across the country have collectively purchased him a plane ticket. They are demanding that the Canadian government issue him an emergency passport by April 3rd so that he can come home. Abdelrazik's lawyer, Yavar Hameed, claims that official Canadian documents released under the Privacy Act and other laws suggest that the Sudanese authorities arrested him under the recommendation of Canada's intelligence agency. Hameed described this as -quote - "the outsourcing of torture."
Security forces in Northern Ireland are scouring the province today for a 300lb bomb they believe may have been smuggled across the border from the Irish Republic by dissident terrorist groups. The Police Service of Northern Ireland issued a bomb warning after the shooting of a Police Constable by the Continuity IRA on Monday. Now police services on both sides of the border are cooperating to try and identify the source of the bomb and more importantly, its intended destination. Northern Irish Police intelligence officials have already voiced concerns that an attack is being planned to coincide with St Patrick Day celebrations next Tuesday. The last major bombing in Northern Ireland was by the Real IRA in the town of Omagh in 1998. Claiming 29 lives, it was the single worst atrocity - in terms of loss of life - over the whole 30 years of sectarian violence in the province. The atrocity ushered in the peace process, which still holds today... a fragile peace that could be further shaken if another bomb were to explode.
Seattle hired Gil Kerlikowske as Chief of Police in the wake of the mass demonstrations against the World Trade Organization in 1999. Before that he served as a deputy director at the US Department of Justice under the Clinton administration. Kerlikowske's appointment has received endorsements from the American Civil Liberties Union and the Green Cross Patient Co-Op, a medical-marijuana patient-advocacy group based in Washington State. During his tenure as Seattle Police Chief, he made prosecution for personal use of marijuana the lowest law enforcement priority for the department. The Drug Policy Alliance, a national group dedicated to drug law reform, says they are "cautiously optimistic" about the appointment because Kerlikowske has taken an approach to drug enforcement that emphasizes public health and treatment over prosecution and imprisonment.
