Blasphemy Laws
The Justice and Peace Commission of Pakistan’s Bishops’ Conference said that a Christian family from Wah Cantt (near Islamabad) was forced to move to an undisclosed location in the country. Their daughter Safad received death threats for allegedly desecrating the Qu‘ran. The Tasneem Dean family was told of “terrible consequences" on the part of Wah Cantt Muslims.

Last July, a Muslim woman accused 16-year-old Safad Tasneem Dean of throwing a copy of the Qu‘ran into a trash bin. An enraged group of Muslims gathered with the intention of burning the girl’s house. They tried to kill her but a group of local elders was able to save her by getting the police to arrest her.

After heated discussions between local Christians and Muslims it was decided that the girl’s father would take her place in prison, but he, too, was released soon after.

Even though no evidence was presented concerning the alleged blasphemy, Safad’s family was forced to move to an undisclosed location.

Adopted in 1986, Pakistan’s Blasphemy law imposes life imprisonment on anyone insulting the Qu‘ran and the death penalty on anyone defiling the name of Mohammed.

Minority and human rights activists have repeatedly called for the law’s repeal. Very often it is used to settle matters between private individuals.

So far tens of Christians have died because of the law. Since 1986, more than 4,000 people have been accused of blasphemy. Currently, some 560 people have been charged and 30 are still waiting for a court decision. The accused have often had to move fearing for their lives and that of their families.

Zundel to Face Prosecution in Germany
It's about time: Canada Orders Holocaust-Denier Deported. In case you don't know who Ernst Zundel is, here's some background.
Jewish activists Friday hailed a court ruling that allows Canada to deport German Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel to face prosecution at home.

Zundel, author of "The Hitler We Loved and Why," has been held in a Toronto jail for two years while authorities determined whether he posed a security risk to Canadian society.

Federal Court Justice Pierre Blais said Zundel's activities were not only a threat to national security, "but also a threat to the international community of nations."

Zundel, a leading proponent of white supremacy, claims the Holocaust never happened.

In his 63-page decision released in Ottawa on Thursday, Blais called Zundel a racist hypocrite and said his Toronto home was a "revolving door" for some of the world's most notorious white supremacists who have promoted violence and hatred against Jews and minorities.

"It is time for Zundel's plane to take off. This should mark a closure to the tireless efforts of many to bring Zundel to justice," said Frank Dimant, executive vice president of B'nai Brith of Canada.

You can't fight discrimination by building mosques
Bleached blonde, dressed in a red sweater, a gold necklace with a large hand of Fatima charm hanging around her neck, Dounia Bouzar is ready to debate with anyone on a subject that is close to her heart: what does it mean to be Muslim in a secular society?

According to Bouzar, 40, an anthropologist and educator who has dealt primarily with young people of North African origin, France is in dire need of in-depth reflection on this subject. Her newest book, "Monsieur Islam n'existe pas; Pour une desislamisation des debats" (Mr. Islam doesn't exist; de-islamisizing the discussions), is one of several publications just out in France that examine "la France Musulmane," or Muslim France.

EU sells Airbus to Iran... and more
This explains the current mindset of europeans in dealing with the mullahs in Iran:
European Union wants to sell Iran an Airbus plane as an incentive to move forward its nuclear talks, German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder told a summit with US President George W Bush on Tuesday, Reuters reported.

A participant quoted the German leader as saying the EU needed to offer incentives in non-sensitive goods to make it difficult for Iran to walk out of negotiations for curbing its nuclear program and ending uranium enrichment that could be used to make a bomb.

Schroeder cited as an example selling one Airbus now and raising the prospect of further aircraft deliveries if the talks were concluded successfully, the source said.
Translation: we offer them a business deal in the vain hope that they think exactly like us and that will stop their vicious plans to build the bomb.

But how many times did we try the same procedure with North Korea? And where are we standing now?

This will even not delay the mullahs' decision to acquire the bomb. The only thing this offer will bring is an insurance given to Hezbollah in south Lebanon by the mullahs in Tehran that there are 'enough Aribuses' for their suicide squads.

It will make them more strong to violate the rights of both Iranian people and the west. Airbus planes will be only used to attack another skyscraper somewhere in Europe or United States.

And while we are at it, NBC's Lisa Myers just reported what else they're selling to the mullahs:
As President Bush pressures European allies to get tougher with Iran, NBC News got a rare glimpse inside the country — at an Iranian air show attended by some of the world's leading military contractors eager to do business with America's adversary.

On the island of Kish, mullahs mixed with Ukrainian generals amid photos of the Ayatollah Khomeini. Iran's contempt for the United States was clear — emblazoned underneath a helicopter, in Farsi: "Death to America."

It's generally illegal for American companies to do business with Iran. But NBC News found more than a dozen European defense and aviation firms eager to fill the void. Some do business with the Pentagon, yet they were actively selling their wares to Iran.

"We sell to Iran [sic] Air Force," said Francois Leloup from Aerazur, a French company that markets fighter pilot vests, anti-gravity suits and other protective gear for military pilots.
There is a video you can watch too.

Seeking A Reprieve
UPDATE by evariste: Greer grants 3 week stay of execution!
An attorney for the parents of Terri Schiavo say Florida's social services agency is seeking a 60-day delay in the removal of the woman's feeding tube while it investigates new allegations of her abuse and neglect.
Better late than never I suppose - her husband has already tried to kill her once with the blessings of the state. I want to believe that the state of Florida won't remove her feeding tube and that the publicity generated for Terri will gain her a pardon from torture and execution - this supposed "right to die" case is nothing less than that.

Israel: sliced, diced, and fed to the terrorists
Contrary to the terms of UNSCR 242, Israel is being backed into a corner and forced to give up legally held lands in order that the world at large might be appeased. A few members of the "let's get rid of Israel" club have been the UN, the intrusive and anti-Semitic EU, and now? The US.

Each one of these groups knows the truth about UNSCR 242, and that Israel is in lawful possession of the "settlements". But this is no longer spoken of. I cannot even remember the last time 242 was invoked by anyone in the discussion over the settlements - which is odd considering it was 242 that actually legalized them in the eyes of the UN.

It was bad enough seeing Clinton shoving the utterly failed Oslo Accords down Israel's throats, watching the "Palestinians" break every single agreement while Israel kept striving to abide by the Accords.

This seems somehow worse. Like Israel has lost its last ally in the US - the conservative right. Condoleeza Rice and President Bush have now both made references to the necessity for a contiguous Paletinian state. They have each said it WILL occur and that Israel will just HAVE to accept it.

Give Any Nation A Chance
An excellent commentary by Amir Taheri in the Arab News:
An election that was not supposed to happen because terrorists and insurgents in Iraq, and their sympathizers in the West, did not want it has produced results that the doomsters that fought to prevent it did not expect.

First, the massive boycott of the polls, predicted by Saddam nostalgics and other members of the Hate-America coalition, did not take place. Last month almost two-thirds of Iraqi voters went to the polls in the first free election in their history.

Now, the final results, announced Sunday, show that the doomsters were wrong a second time.

Lots of things that the opponents of the liberation of Iraq had prayed for did not happen.

Episode 301,434,756
zulubaby exits the Jaguar and straightens out her short skirt which by now was hopelessly wrinkled. Fortunately she had fixed her hair and makeup while HULUGU was arranging for a flight to Aspen. She walks into a very tall building and takes the elevator to the third floor. Then she takes the elevator to the 12th floor. Then she takes the elevator to the basement and then to the 5th floor. Then she takes the elevator back to the lobby and finally back to the basement where she steps out and heads for the trapdoor hidden behind a barrel of beer. There, she takes the escalator down 12 floors and she's now in the sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-basement.

She walks into a long tunnel and takes the elevator to the umpteenth billionth floor. She walks to the third door on the left and rings the bell.

Charles opens the door.

zulubaby: Charles.

Charles: zulubaby.

zulubaby: I have the Google reports.

Charles: Come in.

zulubaby: Oh, you've changed the leftbar! The dotted borders look very pretty...

Charles: Were you followed?

zulubaby: Uh...no!

Charles: We have a mole.

zulubaby: Yes, Jefe told me.

Charles: It's time to destroy AOL. It's brought humanity nothing but misery. It's time for the final blow.

zulubaby: Anything you need Charles, I'm on your side. And ploomie is outside with the guns.

Charles: I needed you...

zulubaby: Charles, I...

Charles: Don't, please don't...

zulubaby: Charles, I'm sorry...

Charles: You broke my heart...

zulubaby: Oh, Charles!

Charles: ...

zulubaby: Charles, I love you!

Charles: What about HULUGU?


Meanwhile at Kosher Eucharist...

Michael: Come in, mom. If you must.

packen kisses Michael and Chris on the cheek and pets the small animal known as "Chris's hair". She does a quick inspection of the dorm room and seeing nothing out of the ordinary dirt she sighs happily. She clears a few hundred cds off the bed, kicks aside the pile of dirty socks by her ankles and sits down.

packen: Sweetheart, it's so good to see you, you look good!

Michael: What do you mean I look good? Of course I look good! Do you know what I have to go through to look like this? You have no idea, do you?! "You look good!" I better look good! But you never liked me! You always wished Chris was your son! Admit it!

packen: Honey, are you on crack?

Michael: Hah! You'd like that, wouldn't you?

Chris: Who wants an eggroll?

Suddenly, the door bursts open and Aridog bursts in the room.

packen: Aridog!

Aridog: packen!

Michael: Mom! What is he doing here?!

Aridog: Michael!

packen: Michael! Don't be rude!

Chris: I really think you should all have an eggroll...

Suddenly, the door bursts open again and Pete (Alois) bursts in the room.

packen: Pete (Alois)!

Pete (Alois): Aridog!

Aridog: Pete (Alois)!

Pete (Alois): packen!

Michael: Dad! What are you doing here?!

Pete (Alois): Michael!

Aridog: Michael!

packen: Michael! How rude!

Chris: Madonna mia, I'm so grateful I'm not related to any of them..
