No regrets
The Danish cartoonist who now has a $1 million fatwa on his head and clerics calling for his hanging, says he has no regrets about the drawings. He has my deepest respect.
Kurt Westergaard risked more fury by saying that his inspiration for the pictures was "terrorism", which he said received "spiritual ammunition" from Islam.

Mr Westergaard, who answered questions from the Glasgow-based Herald in writing through an intermediary, defended the drawings as freedom of expression and the press.

He spoke out as a Pakistani cleric yesterday put a $1m bounty on his head. He is in hiding and hinted to The Herald that the Danish secret service, PET, was guarding him.

Persona non grata
The European Jewish Congress will file a complaint in the International Criminal Court against Ahmadinejad for incitement to genocide, even though the court doesn't have jurisdiction to try him since Iran is not a signatory to the ICC charter. The EJC is also promoting a resolution in the European Parliament to declare the Iranian president persona non grata in the EU countries and is planning to circulate a petition among intellectuals and politicians calling on European governments to prevent Ahmadinejad from visiting their countries. Let's hope they succeed.
Besnainou, a French businessman who was elected president of the EJC last June, told Haaretz, "Ahmadinejad must not set foot on the Continent where he claims the Holocaust did not take place", adding "I cannot imagine that the members of the EU parliament will refuse to adopt this resolution." Besnainou criticized the actions of the EU governments so far on the matter, arguing that they should have recalled their ambassadors for consultations but chose not to do so for "political reasons."

The life of the idle rich
Imagine that you're a university graduate, but you're not allowed to work; you have tons of money but you're not allowed to travel; you have a chauffeur but you're not allowed to drive; you have your whole day free but the only place you can spend it is at the mall. Imagine that you're a progressive woman, educated in the West, and living your life in Saudi Arabia among the "beards". The article portrays the "beards" as equivalent to Born Again Christians, but I beg to differ; Born Again Christians are not okay with throwing women in jail because they didn't cover their hair, and don't approve of killing people who commit adultery. Day Traders And Mall Rats.
Wednesday night at the Tahlil Mall is a big hangout for the Mall Rats. They are the rich, often feckless youths who in a nation with no cinemas, nightclubs or discos, really have nowhere else to go.

Starting at 8:30, after final evening prayers, they begin to gather--swarms of youths, strictly divided into male and female, the young women swathed often head-to-toe in their black abayas. Since this is the more relaxed atmosphere of Jeddah, some of the more daring young ladies actually do without scarves, baring their faces. Others, with a more traditional bent, cover their faces, just the eyes peering through their black masks.

Until midnight, or later, they wander up and down the endless marble corridors, past shops boasting Lacostes, or Rolexes, even Esprit, which has branches in nine Saudi cities. Rarely do they enter these stores. In Lacoste, five sales clerks lounged around while one man idly glanced through piles of shirts, each selling for $100.

But the hallways are a beehive of activity. Badr and Mahmoud are students at the International School and were lounging down the corridor, their baseball caps perched at a jaunty angle, checking out the action, especially the girls.

"I see a girl, I like her, I talk to her," Badr says, and flashes a little smile. But how do you know you like her if you can't really see her? "By her face."

Your daily cartoon mania
Italian Reforms Minister Roberto Calderoli resigned after a mob attacked an Italian consulate in Libya because he appeared on television wearing a t-shirt featuring one of the cartoons, eleven people are dead in Libya over protests about the cartoons (and the Minister of Interior was suspended), Pakistan's religious party leaders are calling for the hanging of the Danish cartoonists, and "angry but peaceful" protesters in London are asking "How dare you insult the blessed Prophet Muhammad?"

As the president of the Danish Journalist Union said, it is totally absurd what is happening.

DNA and Mormon Scripture
The Book of Mormon teaches that a tribe of Jews sailed from Jerusalem to the New World in 600 BC and split into two factions, at war with each other. On one side were the Nephites who were "God-fearing, white* and delightsome", and on the other were the Lamanites who were idolaters and received the "curse of blackness", meaning that their skin turned dark. According to the Book of Mormon, by 385 AD the idol-worshiping Lamanites had wiped out the Nephites.

The Mormon church considers the Lamanites as the principal ancestors of the American Indians (and teaches that if they returned to church, their skin could once again become white). However, DNA testing has shown that American Indians came from Asia and not the Middle East, leaving the Mormon church to try and explain the gap between scientific evidence that Native Americans were not descendants of a lost Hebrew tribe, and a 175-year-old book that the church regards as literal and without error. Bedrock of a Faith Is Jolted.
Genetic testing of Jews throughout the world had already shown that they shared common strains of DNA from the Middle East. Southerton examined studies of DNA lineages among Polynesians and indigenous peoples in North, Central and South America. One mapped maternal DNA lines from 7,300 Native Americans from 175 tribes.

Southerton found no trace of Middle Eastern DNA in the genetic strands of today's American Indians and Pacific Islanders.

In "Losing a Lost Tribe," published in 2004, he concluded that Mormonism — his faith for 30 years — needed to be reevaluated in the face of these facts, even though it would shake the foundations of the faith.

The problem is that Mormon leaders cannot acknowledge any factual errors in the Book of Mormon because the prophet Joseph Smith proclaimed it the "most correct of any book on Earth," Southerton said in an interview.

"They can't admit that it's not historical," Southerton said. "They would feel that there would be a loss of members and loss in confidence in Joseph Smith as a prophet."

Officially, the Mormon Church says that nothing in the Mormon scriptures is incompatible with DNA evidence, and that the genetic studies are being twisted to attack the church.
*In 1981 the word "white" was officially changed to "pure" which tells me that the church perhaps doesn't take the book of Mormon as literally as critics suggest. To say nothing of how they abolished polygamy just like that.

News from the Nascent State of Vampiria
Recipe time, Keeds! Let's play pretend chef, m'kay? I will be your New Neighbor, Mrs. Hamas, and you can be the dainty, yummy luscious little Jooooo next door. Good, we are ALL set. Time for a little drinky poo! Good! Do you like Persian cuisine? Well, then, let's us have some EXQUISITE yellow cake with our drink. Make yourself comfy, darling, let me pull the shade a bit...All comfy? GOOOOOOOD. Relaxed a bit, are ya? EXCELLLENT! Now then, are you getting sleepy. Oh, that's okay. You can rest a little bit. I will go off to the kitchen and prepare the drinky poo. Meanwhile.....this. won't. hurt. a. bit.

You feel like drinking a Bloody Mary, darling? It's kosher...heh. At least, I think the bloody is....or maybe it's the salt. You look like you need a real pick-me-up! Here ya are, and here is the recipe for a delicious Bloody Mary.

Buddy's Bloody Mary

2 oz Vodka
6 oz V8 Juice
1 tsp Horseradish
1/2 tsp fresh Lime Juice
4 dashes Tabasco Sauce
4 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
1 pinch Peppers
1 pinch Celery Salt


Add several ice cubes to a highball glass,
grind some pepper on top and add some celery salt to make seasoned ice cubes. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes, and shake well. Strain the mixture over the ice cubes in the highball glass. Squeeze a lime slice over the drink and drop it in the glass.


Serves 1.


Sorry I had to do that. But when you read the statements coming out of the mouths of Hamas loons, what can you do but either laugh hysterically, or cry hysterically? And Olmert and Kadima think they can do business with these vampires! I have a message for Ehud and the politiks moving forward over the cliff: Be thankful that the Israelis don't treat their traitors like the Palestinians!
