Happy Sweet Sixteen Hubble
This mosaic image from the Hubble and Spitzer telescopes and the Chandra Observatory is the sharpest wide-angle view ever obtained of of the magnificent starburst galaxy, Messier 82 (M82). The galaxy is remarkable for its bright blue disk, webs of shredded clouds, and fiery-looking plumes of glowing hydrogen blasting out of its central regions.
Dar al-Harb or Dar al-Islam?
Why do we seem to be having this cloying conversation every damn day in one way or another? Every effing day. BASTA! This is America, get over it. Live free and let live.
Members of a Muslim student group want MSU officials to publicly speak out against an engineering professor who sent an "offensive" e-mail message to the organization in February.
Indrek Wichman, a mechanical engineering professor, told the Muslim Students' Association that "If you do not like the values of the West … you are free to leave. I hope for God's sake that most of you choose that option," in a Feb. 28 e-mail sent from his university account.
The e-mail also read, "I counsul you dissatisfied, agressive, brutal, and uncivilized slave-trading Moslems to be very aware of this as you proceed with your infantile 'protests.'"
Is he referring to the 50,000 slaves in Darfur? Enslaved by the Arab Islamic government? Slavery , human bondage and trafficking by the Islamic extremists must end. I quite agree.
The same day, members of the association protested against the publication of Danish cartoons that depicted the Prophet Muhammad, calling them inappropriate.
They feel the e-mail was inappropriate as well.
"I'm angry, frustrated, appalled — all of the above," said Farhan Abdul Azeez, the association's president and a human biology senior.
Angered by the slavery and the genocide, I pray.
Azeez said the association met with university officials several times since the incident occurred and have been assured Wichman's views are not shared by the university. Provost Kim Wilcox told the group he personally admonished the professor in a letter, Azeez said, but he has not made the content of the letter public.
Wilcox did the dhimmi bend over but it wasn't enough.
The association's students think that response is not enough. In a statement to the press released Monday, the students called on the university to publicly reprimand Wichman and make diversity training mandatory for faculty and incoming students.
"An investigation immediately followed (the first meeting between administrators and students) to assure the integrity of the learning environment in general, or specifically, was not at risk," university spokesman Terry Denbow said.
Wilcox's letter to Wichman was not released because it is considered a private communication, Denbow said, but added he could speak to the content of the letter.
Operative word here - private.
"It indicated that never should anyone purport to speak for anyone other than themselves and their personal views," Denbow said. "The provost finds the communication in the e-mail to naturally lead to the conclusion the students reached."
Wichman's e-mail read that he and "many, many, many of my colleagues" considered the acts of Muslims offensive, alluding to things such as beheadings and the rape of Scandinavian women.
In an e-mail to The State News on Monday, Wichman wrote, "A communication that I thought was private was subsequently made public, much to my chagrin. That is troubling, and I regret this entire incident."
He declined further comment until a later time.
CAIR, a nationwide Muslim advocacy group for civil rights, got involved with the situation when the MSU group contacted them because students were frustrated by the university's response.
"We are not calling for his dismissal," Walid said. "We want the university to clearly state this type of inciteful speech should not be condoned by any institution."
Dismissal??????????? WTF? Ward Churchill!
Walid said he met with university officials April 14 and still has not heard about further action they might take. If he does not hear anything by the end of the week, he said he will file an official complaint with the Michigan Department of Civil Rights.
Harassment. Threats. Attrition.
When asked why the university did not make a statement before the group issued its press release, Denbow said the university did not want to "decry publicly what we considered a private communication."
Sick, sick sick.

This sets the bar to a critical new high. Malkin rocks here and animates the most important source of news, communication and information of our time. VIDBLOG. eeeehhaaaaaaa. Yeah, its ginormous. She calls it VENT. If it were mine I'd call it RANT AND ROLL.
She grabs some mad affiliates:
Hot Air? Anything but.............I think I need me a web monkey, sheesh.
The problem with the fallacious study from the intellectually dishonest, anti-Semitic paper from those two Harvard academics is its veracity is irrelevant. The fact that it is out there, that it exists, that is written is all the Jew haters need.
Poison Passed like Candy Benny Avi
The polemic against an entity so nefarious it’s mostly uppercased as “The Lobby” by Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer has received insufficient attention in America, the paper’s fans say. They should feel better now that the tract against the American Israel Public Affairs Committee has been echoed by anti-Semites at Turtle Bay.
It happened during a debate at a U.N. body so insignificant that it only received attention recently because its makeup turned it into a joke. Like the Human Rights Commission, which embarrassed even Secretary-General Annan when it elected Libya as its leader and voted America off, the Disarmament Commission last week welcomed Iran as a vice chairman.
Another vice chairman is Israel, which until lately was the only U.N. member state barred from joining any U.N. body. And so the stage was set for a confrontation between two armed foes charged with lowering armed tensions in the world.
The Israeli diplomat, Meir Yitzchaki, voiced the concerns, the Jewish state, whose officials are rarely heard in Turtle Bay’s inner sancta. The commission might want to start by addressing Iran’s nuclear ambitions, he said. Reza Najafi of Iran countered with a call for the disarmament of Israel, which President Ahmadinejad threatened violently to wipe “off the map.”
The predictable debate was mundane enough until Mr. Najafi pulled the secret weapon. According to Mr. Yitzchaki,his Iranian colleague said the Israeli argument is nothing but “Zionist propaganda of the Jewish lobby in the United States.” In a first for Turtle Bay, the Lobby was made to sound even more sinister than its Jerusalem alleged puppet masters.
In other words, the hater of Israel doesn’t mind if Jews stick around, as long as they play the role they’re supposed to: the marginalized victim whose fate is to suffer and provide us with objects of pity. That’s why popular culture’s favorite Jew is the Holocaust victim. As such, the Jew can even keep his religious identity, as long as it is kept thin and reduced to a few charming folkways no more significant than clog-dancing or bagpipes. In other words, don’t be too observantly Jewish, and don’t take being Jewish too seriously. Actually taking religion seriously is the monopoly of Muslims, who especially in Europe are allowed all sorts of leeway in expressing their fanatical devotion to their faith, even when it conflicts with the foundational political ideals of their countries.
Hitler's Birthday? STAB A JEW!
These stories are part of a larger, depressing picture. And they never lose their sting;
(IHC News, 23 April 2006) Skinheads in the Ukranian city of Dnepropetrovsk decided to mark Hitler’s birthday by stabbing a Jew just after the Passover holiday last Thursday 20 April 2006.
At first, the skinheads tried to attack a group of yeshiva (seminary) students but after they escaped, they targeted twenty-year-old Haim Gorbov, a Ukranian citizen and visiting student from northern Israel.
The perpetrators first broke a bottle over Gorbov’s head but when they realized he was unhurt, stabbed him in the chest and fled.
“The rise in antisemitic activity demands immediate and determined preventative action,” said President of the Union of Jewish Communities in Russia, Lev Laviev.
“Whoever doesn't invest in fighting skinheads who are attacking minorities will have to deal with them when they increase the level of violence towards the whole of Ukrainian society,” Laviev said.
And they always do. History always stutters, the Jew is merely the canary in the coal mine.
A previous attack two months ago, was thwarted by security guards but the latest incident is another sign in the growing rate of antisemitic and racial incidents in the region that Jewish officials say are not being dealt with properly by authorities.
Islamic Society:"Mushroom Cloud Is On Its Way!"
At a New York Rally, Islamists and Muslims screaming "mushroom cloud is on the way!" What's it going to take America? Wake up America! Dismiss the left out of hand and fight. Fight for your way of life, fight for your children's lives, and fight for your life. Be in it, not of it....
A New York rally by the Islamic Thinkers Society outside the Israeli consulate yesterday featured chants of "The mushroom cloud is on its way! The real holocaust is on its way!"
The demonstration by the Queens-based group was monitored by the Investigative Project on Terrorism whose members noted signs including "Islam will Dominate" and a picture with an Islamic flag flying over the White House. More here
The chants were in Arabic and translated by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, headed by Steve Emerson, a former reporter for CNN.
Here are some excerpts from the chants:
Leader (in Arabic): "With our blood and our lives we will liberate al Aqsa!"
[The rest also respond in Arabic:] "With our blood and our lives we will liberate al Aqsa!
Israeli Zionists What do you say? The real Holocaust is on its way"
Response: "Allahu Akbar!"

Easter Terror Attack on Egyptian Resort Town
One day after Osama the vampire excreted his latest message three simultaneous explosions in the tourist bazaar area of the Egyptian Sinai resort town of Dahab on Monday - part of a five-day spring holiday in Egypt. One of the bombs targeting a hotel there, one exploding in a large market and the third on a bridge.
More than 90 people reported killed or injured in 3 explosions in town of Dahab, an Egyptian Interior Ministry official told CNN. Vital Perspective is live blogging here.
There have been a string of attacks in Egypt's Sinai peninsula over 18 months. They included al-Qaeda-style bombings in the Egyptian resorts of Taba and Ras Shitan in October 2004, killing 34 people, and in Sharm el-Sheik in July 2005, killing 63.
UPDATE 4/24 @ 3:10pm: Reuters reports that Egyptian rescue officials now put the death toll at 30. The director of rescue services in South Sinai province put the number of wounded up to 160.
UPDATE: 30 dead, 150 wounded. Witnesses "complete mayhem." Israel on high alert (three Israeli dead.....) Vital Perspective is live blogging here.
An AP update: "Southern Sinai Gov. Maj. Gen. Mohammed Hani put the death toll at 21, including 18 Egyptians. Hani said 62 were wounded while the police put the number at more than 150. The difference could not immediately be explained." Hat tip: Mike
IRAN: "Israel is a Fake Regime"
Iran said their Nuclear program is irreversible' and that the US will be humiliated if it attacks. In other unsettling (/tag) developments, the Iraqi President is anxious of Iranian troops massing on its border.
Ahmadinejad reportedly has met in Syria with one of the world's most wanted terrorists, Imad Mugniyeh. The Lebanese commander of Hezbollah's overseas operations is plotting Iran's retaliation should U.S. President George Bush order a strike on Iranian nuclear sites.
Mugniyeh is reported to have traveled with Ahmadinejad in January to Damascus, where the Iranian president met leaders of Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and Hamas, the newspaper said. Story here
Iran is provoking, yes. Iran wants this war, yes. Iran wants to galvanize the whole of the Islamic world against the West -- America, and her proxy, Israel. Ahmadinejad renewed his criticism of Israel, calling it a "fake regime" that cannot continue to exist.
"We say that this fake regime (Israel) cannot not logically continue to live," Ahmadinejad said.
"Some 60 years has passed since the end of World War II, why should the people of Germany and Palestine pay now for a war in which the current generation was not involved," he said here.
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) The Iranian president has long campaigned against Israel, saying in October that the Jewish state should be "wiped off the map." He has said Europe should find a home for Israelis, who should not live on Palestinian land.
"Open the doors (of Europe) and let the Jews go back to their own countries,"
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad hinted Monday that Iran was considering withdrawing from the worldwide Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and said he did not think the U.N. Security Council would impose sanctions on Iran.
A rocket scientist he, eh? Iran will demand more. They will "vex and boss us always more and more." So said Fallaci in The Rage and The Pride (pgs. 98, 99) when speaking of the Islamics. She continues, "till the point of subduing us. Therefore, dealing with them is impossible. Attempting a dialogue, unthinkable. Showing indulgence, suicidal. And he or she who believes the contrary is a fool."
"Those who speak about sanctions would be damaged more" than Iran, he told a news conference.
[...] His comments came four days before Friday's expiration of a Security Council deadline for Iran to suspend its enrichment of uranium, a process that can produce fuel for nuclear reactors material for nuclear warheads.
Iran has rejected the demand.
The IAEA, the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency, has accused Iran of failing to answer all questions about its nuclear program and reported the country to the Security Council for noncompliance with its demands
Israel is concerned that Iran's nuclear ambitions could tempt other, unidentified, Mideast countries to seek to develop atomic weapons.
Iran vows to ignore Security Council nuclear deadline. Behind every Islamic terrorist there is an Imam (Khomeini was an Imam, Osama his successor.) Fallaci said that many (too many) are spirtual guides of terrorism, thus morally speaking, terrorists themselves.
Iran's got it bad and that ain't good.
Natan Sharansky on Dissident Bush
Read Natan Sharansky on President Bush in today's Wall Street Journal;
George W. Bush has the courage to speak out for freedom.
There are two distinct marks of a dissident. First, dissidents are fired by ideas and stay true to them no matter the consequences. Second, they generally believe that betraying those ideas would constitute the greatest of moral failures. Give up, they say to themselves, and evil will triumph. Stand firm, and they can give hope to others and help change the world.
Political leaders make the rarest of dissidents. In a democracy, a leader's lifeline is the electorate's pulse. Failure to be in tune with public sentiment can cripple any administration and undermine any political agenda. Moreover, democratic leaders, for whom compromise is critical to effective governance, hardly ever see any issue in Manichaean terms. In their world, nearly everything is colored in shades of gray.
Charlie Sheen: A Sexually Deviant Maroon
he suggested that the federal government was covering up what "really" happened. "It seems to me like 19 amateurs with boxcutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75 percent of their targets, that feels like a conspiracy theory. It raises a lot of questions," Sheen said. "A couple of years ago, it was severely unpopular to talk about any of this. It feels like from the people I talk to, and the research I've done and around my circles, it feels like the worm is turning." Sheen said the collapse of the Twin Towers looked like a "controlled demolition."
Well, Sheen's twisted pathologies go deeper, much much deeper than that. This guy is a pederast (Pastorius points out - alleged) pig (this we know - cocaine and porn, supersized, even porn love, aw. Sheen's basic degenerate wild ride that includes cocaine, high-priced prostitutes and an accidental shooting and who testified that he used the services of Heidi Fleiss' hookers no fewer than 27 times, totalling $53,000 (and that's just what he admitted too.) Pig for sure or as Fleiss (his favorite pimp) prefers to refer to him - scumbag.
According to his wife's latest sworn declaration (a copy of which you'll find below) filed today here, Charlie lusts after little girls and boys too, yech;
Richards claims that an enraged Sheen--who was over for a visit with the couple's two children--told her she was "fucking with the wrong guy" and called her a series of vulgar names in front of the children. The actor, Richards said, then shoved her to the ground and screamed, "I hope you f--king die, bitch." As Richards, 35, tells it, Sheen was angry because she had told her divorce attorney about discovering details of Sheen's porn-surfing practices. Richards' declaration, filed in support of her request for a restraining order against Sheen, contends that Sheen "belonged" to "disturbing" sites "which promoted very young girls, who looked underage to me with pigtails, braces, and no pubic hair performing oral sex with each other." Other sites visited by Sheen, Richards alleges, involved "gay pornography also involving very young men who also did not look like adults." Richards claims that she also discovered that Sheen "belonged to several sex search type sites" on which he "looked for women to have sex with." His online profile, Richards adds, included a photo of "his erect penis." The Richards evisceration also portrays Sheen as a lousy father who urged her to abort their first child.

France: "The Mosques of Roissy"
I have been trying, with the inestimable help of Atlas readers, to get the dirt on this new book by Philippe de Villiers, entitled The Mosques of Roissy ("Les mosquées de Roissy"),on the dangerous conditions at Charles De Gaulle airport (nicknamed Roissy) due to the infiltration of radical Islamic extremists. The influence of radical Islamist groups is a growing threat to French business and their airports too. In a report commissioned by several retail and courier companies, Eric Denece - director of the French Center for Research and Intelligence - said that the Islamists' strategy is to "take control of Muslims within the workforce" and then "challenge the rules in order to impose Islamic values." More here.
On April 21, 2006 a pilot testifies to the decline/degradation of the climate at Charles De Gaulle airport since the attacks of September 11. Her testimony is from those which, delivered at the end of a long silence. Employed for ten years by the subsidiary company of Air Britair France, pilot Veronique Topall decided today to tell Le Monde how, in the months which followed the attacks of September 11, 2001, a number of runway employees claiming ties to radical Islam deliberately violated safety requirements "on the platform of the airport Roissy 2." Until June 2002 when, on an parked airplane, she suddenly discovered "a blade cutter of 15 cm slipped into a pile of newspapers".
Frightened by the "aggressiveness" of certain employees– her vehicle was defaced/vandalized on several occasions in the car parks of the airport - and worried about her own safety, Veronique Topall lodged a complaint with the police force in October 2002. "I was frightened when parking my car -- these employees refused to look at me", she explained. At the same time, a person in charge of security with Air France raised, in an internal email: "This business is serious and worrying."
The security services of Britair spoke to the company Europe Handling, then in charge of ground personnel, to ask for the firing of some of the some troublemakers. Due to the lack of a conclusive response they (Britair security services) decided to temporarily transfer commander Topall to Orly airport.. “For fourteen months, I then was forced to modify my personal organization and to accept a reduction of salary - until the day when I was finally reinstated in Roissy ", explains the commander. Translated by the sagacious Sarah
Western Resistance has a good take on the revelations exposed in this soon to be released book here;
France: 50 Islamists Work Handling Baggage In Airport
Sadly this news is not on the online edition, but today's UK Daily Telegraph has an interesting story on its print edition, page 16. Charles de Gaulle is one of Paris's three main airports, and is the newest. In a book to be published next week by Philippe de Villiers, entitled The Mosques of Roissy, the author states that the French frontier police have identified 50 baggage-handlers who hold extremist Islamic views.
This week, to allay fears, Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy visited the airport (nicknamed "Roissy") to examine security arrangements. He said that individuals who were "more or less suspect" numbered only 122 out of a total of 83,000 staff who carry security badges. He stated that there were moves to remove 60% of their security clearance.
Sarkozy further stated that the findings of the security services had already been acted upon.
50 extremists? 122 radicals, who are going to have only some of their security privileges forfeited? Following the events of 9/11, and also Paris' bombing attacks by the Groupe Islam Armee, as well as the current Paris trial of 27 Islamists who stated they intended to attack, among other targets, a major French airport, Sarkozy's reassurances sound hollow.
122 people working at Charles de Gaulle airport should be fired or reassigned to duties which have nothing to do with the airport.
UPDATE: Related Islamic terror topic. If you could please go to the website, Rutgers University Ilan Halimi website, you will be able to sign a letter online that will ultimately be delivered to Ilan Halimi's parents in Paris at the end of the month. They are trying to get as many signatures as possible, so if you could please let anyone and everyone know about this, they would greatly appreciate it. More here
Jewish friends in Paris whispered to her in horror at the sheer barbarism of the crime, in which an innocent young man was held for twenty days, found with all his fingers cut off, and burns and bruises over 80% of his body. Because he was a Jew.
BIN LADEN: "calls on Muslim fighters to go to Sudan to wage war against "crusader thieves"
Bin Laden: GENOCIDE IN SUDAN MUST NOT STOP. The killing of innocents will continue unababted. "The West is at war with Islam" and calls on his "followers to go to Sudan to fight a proposed UN force." More here
Simon Deng and Manute Bol have insisted that the ongoing genocide was an Islamic jihad perpetuated by the Arab Islamic government of Sudan against the black African Christians and black moderate Muslims of Sudan and Darfur, but the left wing, terror enabling press never report it that way. Never. Go here for my live video interviews with Bol, Deng (here and here), and Charles Jacobs at the Sudan FreedomWalk in New York (you must scroll down).
It's funny [/not] how the West refuses to call this war what it is, an action - or in this case inaction- that is fraught with peril. They can't even bring themselves to call it a war.
Aristotle said it -- A is A.
The speaker on the tape says “the opposition to the Hamas government is proof of the crusade against Muslims.
The speaker repeats his description of a “crusade” against Muslims, pointing to activities in other areas such as Chechnya, Somalia and Sudan, where bin Laden lived in the mid-’90s before being expelled by the Sudanese government.
Bin Laden and other al Qaeda figures use the term “crusaders” to refer to Christians.
He also slammed the Darfur conflict and the international isolation of the Hamas-led Palestinian government as proof of a "war by crusaders and Zionists against Islam." This savage speaks to the humanitarian effort to save the lives in Darfur as a "war against Islam" and "steal the oil?" Savage! China has been "stealing the oil" from Sudanese people as the oil-hungry Chinese fund the Sudan junta. But the call on Muslim fighters to go to Sudan to wage war against "crusader thieves," speaks volumes to the evil of the enemy. Millions are brutally murdered-- brutally --and who is Bin Laden calling to arms? Who exactly? Who wants the rape, murder, slavery to continue? That is our enemy and the enemy of free peoples and peoples that want to be free. More details here
In the message broadcast Sunday, bin Laden also called for a global Muslim boycott of American goods similar to the recent boycott of Danish products after the publication there of caricatures of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad. Bin Laden citing the cartoon jihad is evidence that those prefabricated riots across the Muslim world were a deliberate incitment to violence and another front on the Islamists war on the West. Tigerhawk has more here.
Bin Laden is saying it what it is and what it shall be, and has been saying it, but the West looks away, turns away, the West won't look the truth straight in the eye. Fear is not an option. This is not just about Bin Laden, it's what he represents. Oh and btw, why an audio tape and not a video? He must look like real shit.
The enemy is not one guy, or a handful of nuts. The enemy is the millions cheering after 9/11. Oriana Fallaci said in The Rage and The Pride (written right after 9/11);
From Afghanistan to Sudan, from Palestine to Pakistan, from Malaysia to Iran, from Egypt to Iraq [before we removed the butcher Hussein], from Algeria to Senegal, from Syria to Kenya, from Libya to Chad, from Lebanon to Morocco, from Indonesia to Yemen, from Saudi Arabia to Somalia, the hate for the West swells like a fire fed by the wind. And the followers of Islamic Fundamentalism multiply like protozoa of a cell which splits to become two cells then four then eight the sixteen then thirty two to infinity.
You who are not aware only have to
look at the images that TV brings us every day. The multitudes that impregnate the streets of Islamabad, the squares of Nairobi, the mosques of Tehran. The ferocious faces, the threatening fists. The fires that burn the American flag and the photos of Bush.
[...] Their yells Allah-akbar, Allah-akbar. Jihad-Jihad. .Extreme fringes?!? Fanatical minorities?!? They are millions and millions, the extremists.They are millions and millions, the fanatics. The millions and millions for whom, dead or alive, Osama Bin Laden is a legend similar to the legend of Khomeini. The millions and millions who after Khomeini's death have chosen Bin Laden as their new leader, their new hero.
TV reporter interviewing old man in Nairobi;
Reporter: "Who is, for you, Osama Bin Laden?"
""A hero, our hero."
Reporter:"And what happens if he dies?"
"We find another one," the old man answered, still joyfully. In other words, the one who guides them is only the tip of the iceberg.
Thus, the real protagonist of this war is not Bin Laden. This is a war which is designed to destroy our civilization. Our way of life. The way we live, laugh, love, dress, read.
Saudi Arabia weighing in on capturing Osama, one of their own Wahhabists is laughable. Saudi Arabia where anyone with a Bible in hand or a cross around his neck was (and is) treated like a scum to be put to death.
"Mister Bin Laden, Sir, how much money does Al Qaeda receive from your Saudi compatriots and from members of the Royal Family" - Fallaci
How dare that decrepit "medieval feud which enslaves us with its fucking oil"? More Saudi oppression here.
And the Democrats calling for Bin Laden's capture as though that puts an end to the latest violent battle in the centuries long war is idiotic. And they are taking the American people for morons.
My favorite shrink, Shrinkwrapped writes here;
Jane Harman was on Fox News Sunday this morning and the first topic was the bin Laden tape. Her response was nonsensical (we haven't caught bin Laden because we are bogged down in Iraq) and I decided to parse it (especially because it continues to be used and repeated by Democrats on a regular basis.)
But even that is not the most risible part of the talking point. Most accounts suggest that bin Laden has been hiding either in Pakistan or in Iran. Someone should remind the Democrats that these are both sovereign nations. Are the Democrats really suggesting that we should send troops into Pakistan and/or Iran en masse, uninvited? Are the Democrats ready to declare war on Iran and Pakistan? I briefly comment on the McCarthy firing, as well, since Juan Williams reliably quotes the Dems talking points each Sunday:
I would also ask of the Democrats: Do they really believe that any person who has access to Top Secret, Classified information, should be free to surreptitiously leak such material to friendly reporters when they disagree with a policy? This was Juan Williams position this morning. It is hard to imagine any responsible Democrat agreeing, but it is not as inconceivable as I might have once thought. They should remember that one day they will again inhabit the White House and this kind of legitimization of what once was unthinkable, has a habit of coming back to bite you in unpredictable ways. For those with short memories, I would remind you of the damage a Special Prosecutor, along with sexual harassment laws that were overtly weighted toward the interests of the accusers, did to the Presidency of William Clinton.

Stop the ACLU is covering it here;
Hat tip: Right on the Right I was just starting to think it had been too long since this thug had something to say. Every time people start thinking he is dead, a new tape comes out. So, now he is upset that we didn’t take him up on his truce, and that we are not giving money to Hamas. Therefore, by his reasoning we are waging a war on Islam itself.
PA Pundits comes back with some tells it like it really is - A is A.
We haven’t declared war on Islam even when Islam spouts rhetoric like this.. “we believe every Muslim has the potential to turn into a bomb against the west“.
Linked at Mudville Gazette
Where are the voices of moderate Islam speaking out against this? Where is the damn chorus of voices?
UPDATE April 24th: John Bolton swats the fly;
"That's a mark of bin Laden's desperation and certainly won't affect our planning."
al-reuters: Terrorist Tool, Left Wing Tool
Paper calls for Dick Cheney's early retirement
Reuters A Los Angeles Times editorial on Sunday called for a "far more audacious" makeover of President George W. Bush's administration, saying he should send Vice President Dick Cheney into early retirement.
Who gives a shit what that leftist trash yellow bellied newspaper says? And why is al-reuters running it as a new story?
Bias? What bias?
