A
PLO
Operative
In The Phillipines?
What The ...?


What the heck is the Palestinian Liberation Organization doing in the Phillipines? From my friend Reliapundit at the Astute Bloggers:

KHALEEJ TIMES/AFP: Former PLO member arrested in Philippines

MANILA -
Authorities arrested a former Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) member
in the southern Philippines, a report said Saturday, amid suspicions he was
involved with local Islamic militants.

Immigration, police and military
personnel arrested Yussof Umar Animour, 41, also known as Yusop Omar, in the
town of Sibalu in the southernmost islands of Tawi-Tawi on November 1 for
illegally staying in the country, an Immigration Bureau report said.

However sources in the intelligence community believe he has ties with
local Muslim militants who have battled the government.

Intelligence
reports say that in 2000 he was spotted in a Philippine camp with insurgents of
the separatist Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) while the military was
launching an assault against the group.

It was unclear what he was doing
in the Philippines at the time of his arrest.

Omar was as a
communications specialist with the PLO in Lebanon from 1982 to 1984, then went
to Manila to study in 1986. However schools rejected his application because he
did not have a student visa, the bureau report said.

* THE PHILIPPINES HAVE LONG BEEN AN IMPORTANT HUB OF JIHADIST TERROR.

* THE PLO - IN THE PHILIPPINES!?!? BUT THEY DON'T HAVE MANY JOOOOOOZE THERE.

* D'YA THINK MAYBE JIHADOTERROR AIN'T ABOUT THE JOOOOOOZE, THEN!?

* AND NOT ABOUT ISRAEL.

* AND NOT ABOUT THE NEOCONS OR THE GOP.

* AND TWISTING ISRAEL'S ARMS TO GIVE CONCESSIONS TO THE JIHADISTS WILL NOT END OR EVEN REDUCE TERROR.

* IT WILL ONLY INCREASE IT BECAUSE IT SENDS A CLEAR MESSAGE: TERROR WORKS.

* BUSH IS WRONG TO MAKE ISRAEL GIVE INTO FATAH.

* IT WILL COME BACK TO HURT US ALL.

I've Got A Right To Be Wrong


Joss Stone. Wow!





Here are the lyrics:


I've got a right to be wrong
My mistakes will make me strong
I'm stepping out into the great unknown
I'm feeling wings though I've never flown
Got a mind of my own
I'm flesh and blood to the bone
I'm not made of stone
Got a right to be wrong
So just leave me alone

I've got a right to be wrong
I've been held down too long
I've got to break free
So I can finally breathe
Got the right to be wrong
Got to sing my own song
I might be singing out of key
But it sure feels good to me
Got a right to be wrong
So just leave me alone

You're entitled to your opinion
But it's really my decision
I can't turn back I'm on a mission
If you care don't you dare blur my vision
Let me be all that I can be
Don't smother me with negativity
Whatever's out there waiting for me
I'm going to face it willingly

I've got a right to be wrong
My mistakes will make me strong
I'm stepping out into the great unknown
I'm feeling wings though I've never flown
I've got a mind of my own
Flesh and blood to the bone
See, I'm not made of stone
I've got a right to be wrong
So just leave me alone

Botox
For
The Brain

From Reuters, an article about the future of brain-enhancing drugs and surgery:


By Ben Hirschler

LONDON, Nov 8 (Reuters) - A rise in healthy people popping pills to boost performance in exams or work, raises long-term ethical and safety concerns about the effects of such treatments, British doctors said on Thursday.

The British Medical Association (BMA) wants a public debate about the risks and benefits of using drugs to improve memory and concentration, sometimes called "cognitive enhancement".

The ability of prescription drugs and medical procedures to improve intellectual performance is likely to increase significantly in the next 20 to 30 years as technology advances.

"We know that there is likely to be a demand by healthy individuals for this treatment," Dr Tony Calland, chairman of the BMA's Medical Ethics Committee said at the launch of a discussion paper on the issue.

"However, given that no drug or invasive medical procedure is risk free, is it ethical to make them available to people who are not ill?"

Surreptitious use of brain-boosting prescription drugs is particularly common in the United States and likely to increase in Britain, the BMA said.

"There is a growing expectation that the use of these so-called cognitive enhancers in the UK is both imminent and inevitable," the BMA said.

Today, the use of pharmaceutical aids to boost performance is mainly confined to certain groups -- notably students cramming for exams.

Popular choices include drugs for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, such as Ritalin, or methylphenidate, made by Novartis AG and others.

Another favourite is modafinil, the active ingredient in Cephalon Inc's narcolepsy medicine Provigil.

Such drugs are widely available to buy online.

BOTOX FOR THE BRAIN

In the future scientists may be able to provide more permanent fixes for bad memory or poor concentration through brain stimulation and neurotechnology.

This would involve techniques such as transcranial magnetic stimulation -- sometimes referred to as "botox for the brain" -- where magnetic pulses are used to stimulate particular brain regions, and deep brain stimulation, where electrodes are inserted into the brain to transmit tiny electrical currents.

These and future medical interventions could benefit individuals and, potentially, wider society, if they increase the competitiveness of the workforce.

But "over-enhancement" of the brain's cognitive functions could have damaging side-effects.

Kristalnacht:
69 Years Later
And I Can
Still Hear
The Glass Breaking


Kristalnacht = The Night of Crysal. Read this. A great post from Yid With Lid:


Through out the world we remember Kristallnach, the night the Nazi's began the Holocaust in earnest. Its amazing how little has changed in almost seven decades. Arab countries fill their children's textbooks with anti Jewish Hatred.

Islamic Clerics call for the death of Jews. In Germany Anti-Semitism is making a comeback. And much of the world believes that 9/11 was planned by the Jews.


Go read the whole thing.

Nazi Band Coming To A Venue Near You


From 1389 Blog:


Croatian rock star Marko Perkovic ‘Thompson’ has just begun a US-Canadian tour, with two concerts in New York (Nov. 2 and 3), followed by concerts in Toronto (Nov. 4, reportedly cancelled), Cleveland (Nov. 9), Chicago (Nov. 10), Los Angeles (Nov. 11), Vancouver (Nov. 16), and San Francisco (Nov. 18.) Full details are in footnote [1].

Emperor’s Clothes has
proven that Thompson is a self-declared Ustasha - a Croatian clerical-fascist. (Clerical-fascist ideology indoctrinates with a mixture of Nazi-type racism and Catholic religious fanaticism.) The Ustasha movement murdered over a million people from 1941-1945. The overwhelming majority were Serbs (Slavs who are Orthodox Christian, i.e., non-Catholic), but they also killed most Jews and Roma (’Gypsies’) in the greater Croatia that they ruled.

It is chilling that one can find videos on Youtube, such as the one below, in which people at Thompson’s June 2007 concert in Zagreb, Croatia, are heard chanting “Ubij, Ubij, Ubij Serbina.” It means “Kill, kill, kill a Serb.”





This tour by Thompson’s band, also called ‘Thompson’ (after the Thompson submachine gun), has produced justified outrage. It is an attempt to legitimize clerical-fascism. If Thompson - whose politics would logically lead to the murder of millions of North Americans, including African-Americans and other so-called ‘non-whites,’ Jews, people of Serbian descent and others of the Orthodox Christian faith, progressives, and anyone (teachers? trade unionists?) who dared to resist the clerical-fascists - if Thompson can carry out this tour successfully, it will be a victory for fascism.


Information about where to complain is at the top of the above TENC article. (The US State Department email form works only part of the time, but you can always use the address or phone number.)

Information about the concert schedule is in footnote 1 in the above article.


Iranian President
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:
We Have 3,000
Centrifuges
Operating


And, of course, they are operating for peaceful purposes:


Iran has achieved a landmark, with 3,000 centrifuges fully working in its controversial uranium enrichment program, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced Wednesday.

"We have now reached 3,000 machines," Ahmadinejad told thousands of Iranians gathered in Birjand, in eastern Iran, in a show of defiance of international demands to halt the program believed to be masking the country's nuclear arms efforts.

Ahmadinejad has in the past claimed that Iran succeeded in installing the 3,000 centrifuges at its uranium enrichment facility at Natanz. But Wednesday's claim was his first official statement that the plant is now fully operating all those centrifuges.

When Iran first announced launching the 3,000 centrifuges in April, the UN nuclear watchdog agency, the International Atomic Energy Agency, said Tehran had only 328 centrifuges up and running at Natanz's underground facility.

Italian Premier Romano Prodi said Tuesday that Iran has every right to develop a peaceful nuclear program, while the international community has an equal right to verify its peaceful nature using the existing judicial measures.

In a speech delivered to Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah, on a visit to Rome, Prodi also said that Italy opposes any military action against Iran over Tehran's contentious nuclear program because such an attack could destabilize the entire Middle East.

Italy, as of this year a non-permanent member of the UN. Security Council, traditionally has good relations with Tehran and maintains a strong presence in Iran's gas market through Italian oil and gas giant Eni SpA. Senior government officials, including the foreign minister, have spoken out against any use of force against Iran, saying that a new war in the region would be disastrous and calling instead for increased diplomatic efforts.

Iran insists its nuclear program is peaceful, but its assertions are widely disbelieved. The Security Council has demanded that Tehran suspend uranium enrichment -a potential pathway both to generating nuclear power and creating the fissile core of warheads.

Hitler And The Mufti -
The History Of
Islamic Nazism



Why did Hitler love the Arabs so much? They weren't Aryan, right?

Well, as he told his Arabs friends, "We have the same goal, the extermination of the Jewish people."



UK: Jews Are
Four Times
More Likely,
Than Muslims,
To Be Attacked
For Their Religion



From Melanie Phillips at City Journal:


In August 2006, as the war in Lebanon raged, a gang of teenage girls confronted 12-year-old Jasmine Kranat and a friend on a London bus. “Are you Jewish?” they demanded. They didn’t hurt the friend, who was wearing a crucifix. But they subjected Jasmine, a Jew, to a brutal beating—stomping on her head and chest, fracturing her eye socket, and knocking her unconscious.

According to the Community Security Trust, the defense organization of Britain’s 300,000-strong Jewish community, last year saw nearly 600 anti-Semitic assaults, incidents of vandalism, cases of abuse, and threats against Jewish individuals and institutions—double the 2001 number. According to the police, Jews are four times more likely to be attacked because of their religion than are Muslims. Every synagogue service and Jewish communal event now requires guards on the lookout for violence from both neo-Nazis and Muslim extremists. Orthodox Jews have become particular targets; some have begun wearing baseball caps instead of skullcaps and concealing their Star of David jewelry.

Anti-Semitism is rife within Britain’s Muslim community. Islamic bookshops sell copies of Hitler’s Mein Kampf and the notorious czarist forgery The Protocols of the Elders of Zion; as an undercover TV documentary revealed in January, imams routinely preach anti-Jewish sermons. Opinion polls show that nearly two-fifths of Britain’s Muslims believe that the Jewish community in Britain is a legitimate target “as part of the ongoing struggle for justice in the Middle East”; that more than half believe that British Jews have “too much influence over the direction of UK foreign policy”; and that no fewer than 46 percent think that the Jewish community is “in league with Freemasons to control the media and politics.”
