...Or Perhaps the Great Turtle That Carries the World Farted
The earthquake that struck the Indian Ocean on December 26, triggering a series of huge waves called tsunami, "was possibly" caused by an Indian nuclear experiment in which "Israeli and American nuclear experts participated," an Egyptian weekly magazine reported Thursday.

The Egyptian weekly magazine concludes in its report that "the exchange of nuclear experts between Israel and India, and US pressure on Pakistan which is exerted by supplying India with state-of-the-art nuclear technology and preventing Islamabad from cooperating with Asian and Islamic states in the nuclear field, pose a big question mark on the causes behind the violent Asian earthquake."

Incitement against Israel and Jews in Egyptian media is usually limited to the context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict yet exceptions are known to occur.

In August 2002, the Paris Supreme Court summoned Ibrahim Naafi', editor of the Egyptian daily Al-Ahram, for having authorized the publication of a controversial article entitled 'Jewish matza is made from Arab blood' in the October 28, 2000 edition of the paper.

The Two Faces of Iran
Roya Hakakian writes about the transformation of Iranian society in the last two decades:
Twenty-five years of alcohol prohibition have brought many things, none of which include abstinence. Bootlegging and smuggling have reached a historic high. And one of the most cherished souvenirs from overseas is the can-crusher, to eliminate the sinful evidence of beer consumption. The Islamic Dress Code which, in my days, included a scarf pulled to the edge of the brow, a pair of pants, closed-toe shoes, a tent-like uniform that reached below the knees and was available only in drab shades of gray, brown, black or navy blue, has undergone a transformation. Today's scarves are chiffon and do not even reach the forehead. The new uniforms are fashionably styled and multicolored, tight and short, with slits that run up to places the clerics would be hard-pressed to name. In the capital, no boutique can quite call itself a boutique without stocking Victoria's Secret.

Art galleries have proliferated, and the most successful ones are run by women. To most Americans, Iran conjures Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia. But Iranian women, the regime's most consistent opposition, would differ. Some would even be offended: the Association of National Women Figure Skaters, Women Rock-Climbers of the State of Isfahan or the Association of Women Race Car Drivers, to name a few.

When the authorities banned satellite dishes, people planted them in their flowerbeds, away from the eyes of the morality guards. As the business of smugggling foreign films and music also swept through the country, the music ban proved absurd. Nowadays, rap is the craze. And true to rap's spirit of subversiveness, these rappers shave and dress impeccably in western suits and ties.
Meanwhile: O Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

But before you get too happy with Ms Hakakian's optimism and goodwill, one small note:
Women in Iran are terrorized. We are facing discriminatory laws as well as family violence. These laws represent the biggest problem. If laws were just, violence would diminish. That is why the fight against laws that discriminate is given priority."

She says that the laws are not adapted to today's society. Today, 63% of students in Iran are women, yet many laws violate human rights because they systematically discriminate against women.

"A man may have four wives; two female witnesses make up for one male witness; in compensation cases, the price of a woman's life is worth half the price of a man's; filing for a divorce is more difficult for a woman than for a man. One type of violence against women is forbidden, but another type is permitted", she explains.

Führer Of Arabia
You've heard about how Arafat's uncle, the Nazi Mufti Husseini, was a Nazi, I assume. You may not be aware that he recruited and trained troops that ran death camps in Europe, and was one of the main authors of the Shoah. GP > Mideast & Southeast Asia > Nazi Influence on the Middle East During WWII
The largest Muslim Nazi SS unit was the 13th division known as “Hanjar.? Husseini also organized smaller, less efficient units, including the 21st Waffen SS division known Skanderbeg (made up predominantly of Croatians) and the 23rd Waffen SS division known as Kama and made up mostly of Albanian Muslims. Thus, the Hitler’s Mufti organized or helped to organize three out of 27 Waffen SS divisions formed before 1945 (eleven other SS divisions were formed in 1945, but most of these were of questionable caliber and accepted soldiers of questionable skill). According to the Encyclopedia of Holocaust, Husseini “organized in record time? Croatian units that went on to massacre hundreds of thousands of Serbian Orthodox Christians. Jacenovac, the third largest death camp where over 200,000 people met their death, was run by Croatian Ante Pavelic with the aid of al-Husseini. In all, at least 800,000 Yugoslavian civilians were murdered by pro-Axis regimes of Utasche and Pavelic, with significant aid from the units established by the “Fuhrer of the Arab World.? [27] Tens of thousands of Jewish people outside Yugoslavia also perished when the Mufti persuaded not to trade them for German POW’s held by the Allies.

Al-Husseini opened a North African Bureau in Germany, whose goal was to recruit 500,000 Arab soldiers from Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria. The plan failed when the German forces were forced to withdraw from much of North Africa after a successful British operation. [28]

However, an Arab Legion was founded and fought under the German flag. The Arab soldiers had hoped to fight in the Middle East, but were instead sent to the Russian front, where they were completely wiped out while fighting in the Caucasus region. Some time later, in response to the British decision to create a Jewish Brigade made up of some of the 26,000 Palestinian Jews who had fought under the United Kingdom’s flag, the Mufti convinced the Germans to create an Arab Brigade. The unit, however, either did not fight or was not very efficient because very little is known about it. [29]

The Mufti also made a particularly strong effort to recruit Soviet Muslims. “It was largely due to Haj Amin’s propaganda that on the arrival of German armies in the northern Caucasus in 1942, five indigene tribes – the Chechens, the Ingushes, the Balkars, the Karachais, and the Kabardines – welcomed them with bread and salt,? wrote Joseph Schechtman in “The Mufti and the Fuhrer.? [18] Stalin’s response was deadly. Caucasian Muslims, including nearly all Chechens and Ingush, were exiled from their land, with up to a third dying as a result of inhumane treatment by Soviet authorities.

The Mufti was similarly instrumental in the recruitment of the Azerbaijani battalion, which “proved their valor, were included in German Storm Troops and decorated by the German Army,? according to a November 1943 broadcast by DNB. The Mufti’s representatives in Central Asia recruited some Muslim fighters for Nazi Germany there as well, despite the widespread support of the majority of Central Asian Muslims for the plight of the Jews during the Holocaust. [30]

The Mufti’s hatred of the West was matched only by his hate of the Jews. It is not a coincidence that Germany suddenly abandoned the policy of expelling Jews and adopted far harsher methods a short time after the Mufti arrived in Germany. When Haj Amin came to Germany again, the Nazis decided to execute the Final Solution to the Jewish Problem – the Holocaust. “The Mufti was one of the initiators of the systematic extermination of European Jewry,? reported Eichmann’s deputy, Dieter Wisliceny. “[He had] played a role in the decision to exterminate the European Jews. The importance of this role must not be disregarded . . . . The Mufti was one of the initiators of the systematic extermination of European Jewry.? [31] We do not know if al-Husseini played a major role in shaping the Final Solution. “There is, however, abundant first-hand evidnece of the part the Mufti played in making foolproof the ban on emigration (of Jews out of Germany),? wrote Joseph Schechtman. [32]
Read the whole thing, and read about the Nazi roots of the Islamic Brotherhood (al ikhwan il muslimeen, which the CIA and State Department want to "reach out" to). Not to mention the Ba'ath party which ran Iraq and still runs Syria, and Gamal Abdel Nasser, the father of Arab nationalism. Nazis, all.

Message of Peace
Yeah, I know it's all Greek to you, but bear with me here:
Tων επετειακών εκδηλώσεων π?οηγείται η μετάδοση από όλα τα κανάλια της Καντάτας του Μίκη Θεοδω?άκη για τα ?εκ?ά Παιδιά του Πολέμου, έ?γου που συνοδε?ει βίντεο με σχετικές εικόνες (αποσπάσματα από μια εκπομή που είχε κάνει ο Στέλιος Κο?λογλου) και θα μεταδοθεί α??ιο, ανήμε?α των Φώτων, ως μήνυμα ει?ήνης. Eleftherotypia (Greek only)
Mikis Theodorakis, famous Greek composer and Jew-hater par excellence, is turning 80 this week and there will be a concert to celebrate his birthday. In addition to the concert, every television channel in Greece will air Theodorakis' "Cantata for the Dead Children of the War" and it will be accompanied by related video and images from the Iraq war as a peace message. This will be broadcast today, January 6th, the day of Epiphany which is a state holiday in Greece, guaranteed to draw a large audience. No media bias or propaganda here at all.

So, who is this guy?
...his name is still mentioned as a possible candidate for president. His status as the most important Greek musician is unquestioned. Even in France, Germany and the Scandinavian countries, Theodorakis is a cultural figure of the first rank. Some consider him a person whose work and life embody the spirit of the contemporary European left.

Here's an excerpt from an interview he gave to Haaretz:
You yourself think that the Jews, the international Jewish community, have control of the banks, Wall Street, the mass media?


And you say that now, through its influence on Bush, it has control of world affairs?


What is the Jewish influence on the Bush policy?

"I believe that the war in Iraq and the aggressive attitude toward Iran is greatly influenced by the Israeli secret services."

The Jews have so much power that they can direct the policy of the world's only superpower?

"There is a group of Jews who surround Bush and control the policy of the United States."

So the Jews pull the strings behind Bush?

"No. They are in the front."

America, the great superpower, is actually controlled today by the Jews?


What are the intentions of the Jews who control President Bush?

"The main front is the Arabs. They believe that by hitting the Arabs they could help Israel survive. They give a military solution to the problem of the future existence of Israel."
Read the whole thing if you can stomach it.

Michael, let go of the shotgun!
My future boyfriend is sick and is begging to be killed. I don't want him killed, I want him well, or at least only mildly ill since he's one of the few people I know that can turn a cold into a comedy. So please go wish him well or leave him a chicken soup recipe or something, but whatever you do, don't kill him.

This is my personal favourite:
Fourth place was a label on an electric hand blender promoted for use in “blending, whipping, chopping and dicing,? that warns: “Never remove food or other items from the blades while the product is operating.?

An Excuse to Promote Hatred
The State Department has presented a one-time report to Congress on European anti-Semitism and guess what?
A rise in the number of Muslims in Western Europe has intensified longstanding anti-Jewish sentiment in the region and acts such as desecrating synagogues are likely to increase, the State Department said.

Since 2000 in Europe, vandalism such as graffiti, fire bombings of Jewish schools and the desecration of cemeteries and synagogues has surged and attacks against Jews "increased markedly," the department said in a report, which was mandated by Congress.

"This was a one-time report that calls attention to a new phenomenon. While there is not an explosion of anti-Semitism, it's a concern that there is a rise of acts by Muslim minorities in Europe," said a State Department official, who asked not to be named.

Stone's Raging Nonsense
Oliver Stone's movie, "Alexander the Great," has flopped big time at the box office. Of course, as specified in the Hollywood Director's Manual "Who's To Blame When Your Movie Sucks," it's America's fault:
...he said he was "quite taken aback by the controversy and fierceness of the reviews" which greeted its US release, including outrage at the film's suggestion that Alexander was bisexual.

"Sexuality is a large issue in America right now, but it isn't so much in other countries," he said.

"There's a raging fundamentalism in morality in the United States. From day one audiences didn't show up. They didn't even read the reviews in the south because the media was using the words: 'Alex is Gay'."
Stone blames 'fundamentalism' in US for 'Alexander' flop
Funny that he mentions the "raging fundamentalism" in the US because as I remember...
A group of Greek lawyers are threatening to sue Warner Bros film studios and Oliver Stone, director of the widely anticipated film "Alexander", for suggesting Alexander the Great was bisexual.

Two years ago hundreds of northern Greeks from the province of Macedonia, where he was born, stormed an archaeological symposium after one speaker presented a paper on the homosexuality of Alexander. Police were called in to evacuate the participants.

Desecration Of Islam's Holy Sites
Accuracy In Media points out that the media constantly feeds the idea that the US desecrates muslim holy sites (when we actually treat them with much respect) and completely ignores desecration of Islamic shrines on a historic scale...because it's muslims doing it.

Ironically, however, during the same month that thousands of Pakistanis took to the streets in a furor over what America was doing in Iraq, zealots with the backing of the Pakistani police stormed the Ahmadiyya mosque in Nakhalpara, Pakistan, to remove books deemed offensive to Islam and banned by the government.

The Ahmadiyya sect of Islam has had its mosques attacked and reduced to rubble and their creeds erased from the front of mosques. This sect is singled out as heretical because it is dedicated to non-violence and opposes terrorism.

The Ahmadiyya movement considers itself the true reflection of Muslim spirituality, but their opponents are appalled that they call themselves Muslims and describe their own houses of worship as "Masjids" or mosques. The sect is considered blasphemers by fanatical Islamists and has been under serious persecution in Pakistan since the 1980's when the government issued edicts against it.

Reports by human rights organizations have documented the persecution. Observers say for 15 years their mosques have been vandalized and reduced to rubble. Some mosques remain incomplete due to a ban forbidding them to build minarets.

Giving Pakistan a run for their money, though, is the astonishing scope of destruction of Islamic sites in Saudi Arabia. Historic tombs, landmarks, mosques and battle sites, all central to the Muslim faith, have either been destroyed or been ordered to be destroyed. The birthplace of Mohammed, founder of the Islamic faith, was razed over and turned into a public restroom.
I doubt even the most conspiracy-theory-prone muslims would believe it if they'd heard that the Jews had done such a thing. But the Saudis get away with it with impunity. Un-be-lievable.
In June of last year, the Islamic Supreme Council of America called for the support of the world community, UNESCO and the United Nations to stop the destruction of venerated Muslim relics in Saudi Arabia. They issued two press releases detailing the damage being done. Three months later the Wall Street Journal covered the issue in a front page report, and the Weekly Standard followed suit, but a Lexis Nexis search turns up no other coverage.
Where is the media on this? They can't get into Apartheid Mecca to report firsthand but they can at least report that it's happening, can't they? The destruction of the childhood home of the founder of Islam? Is anyone out there?
Behind the moves are the Wahhabist radicals who, like the Taliban, believe reverence for any image or building is idolatrous. Unscrupulous businessmen looking for real estate development projects also support the destruction. In November the Associated Press reported on an $8 billion plan to develop Mecca, but omitted any reference to the destruction.

The general media blackout is surprising given the worldwide coverage of the Taliban's destruction of ancient Buddhist statues in Afghanistan in 2001, a move which was universally seen as a great cultural loss. Indeed, the U.N.'s Kofi Annan seemed more concerned about the destruction of the statues than the fact that the Taliban had turned the country over to Osama bin Laden's terrorists.

Exclusive media focus on American desecration allowed Muslim destruction to go unnoticed and unchallenged. In this historically significant failure, most media disregarded the big picture of the expanding reach of Wahhabist fundamentalism in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, via the destruction of holy sites and artifacts, and what that means for the world.
Wahhabis, again? Huh. I'm really beginning to get around to thinking about contemplating forming a coordination committee to strongly disapprove of these guys.

Those Swarthy Frenchmen
Quelle surprise: British army has history of racial profiling.
(French are a race?!)
ISN SECURITY WATCH (04/01/05) – From 1957 until well into the 1970s, the British army restricted the number of “non-white? recruits from ethnic minorities and maintained a separate, secret register of these troops, according to British media reports on Tuesday. The information was released under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA), which came into force on 1 January as a measure towards promoting transparency and accountability among government agencies.

Military authorities chose to lie when the official Institute of Race Relations asked for statistics on serving black officers in 1972, the BBC reported. Although the army stated at the time that no such data was available, 30-year-old documents now released under the FOIA show that punchcards in the medical records of “colored? recruits were punched in a way as to mark them separately. A “broad division? between “north European and all others? was drawn by the military authorities, according to the newly released documents, and medical officers had considerable leeway in classifying soldiers as “D factor? – code for “non-white?. A confidential report to the Adjutant General of the Army in 1972 says that the racist “D factor? classification is “at the discretion of various medical officers, and could include Chinamen, Maltese or even swarthy Frenchmen?.

However, this policy was never publicly acknowledged, and during a 1972 enquiry into the ethnic makeup of the armed forces, the army denied that any such statistics were kept. “We do not feel it would be appropriate to mention [the policy] to ministers?, the Adjutant General’s office noted in 1974. Ethnic characteristics appear to
have been recorded in order to ensure white dominance in certain army units such as the Military Police and the Intelligence Corps, which listed only one “non-white? soldier each in the early 1970s, according to the newly released files. It is unclear how long the racial profiling continued, but the policy was in place at least until 1975.
