פרשת זכור
This week, the שבת before Purim, we take out a second Sefer Torah and read Parshat Zachor. Many authorities list this as a Torah obligation (Mitzva D'oraita) - that everyone must remember what Amalek did.

Whatever happened to Vikhran from Tech Support?
Ashim Ahluwalia's documentary, "John & Jane Toll Free", follows the lives of call center workers in Mumbai, India. About 400,000 Indians are employed in the call center industry and the call centers have been hailed as one of globalization's success stories. Perhaps too successful; there are not enough educated English-speaking workers in India to do these jobs and some Indian call centers have started recruiting college graduates from the EU.
Nikki, Osmond, and Nicholas epitomize the American spirit -- they are hard-working, career obsessed and driven by consumer desires. But in reality, this isn't how they started life -- all have new personas that they have adopted as part of their jobs in India's call centers. Before adopting their new American skins, they were Vandana, Omar and Nikesh. Teachers armed with catalogs and snapshots of shopping malls, helped them to adopt Western personalities in order to make them more successful call center workers. Americans and Europeans are unhappy that local call center jobs have been relocated to lower wage countries, and the more Western the call center workers seem, the less likely they are to get any friction from the other end of the line.

Messengers of hate
Norman Finkelstein, not content with his work only being used by leading Holocaust deniers worldwide, he's trying to expand the hatred. In a speech at Columbia University on the subject of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he called Israel guilty of state terrorism and said that "the only difference between Israeli and Hamas terrorism is that Israeli terrorism, judging by the numbers, is three times as lethal."

So there's no difference between terrorism and a state's response to terrorism, according to Mr Finkelstein, who of course says all this in the safety of American lecture halls, where he doesn't have to worry about his safe and comfortable American life. I bet he's never ridden a Jerusalem bus, either.

Then again, he's not the only one who disregards the truth.

evariste in Discarded Lies:
Iraniban
The governor of Herat, an Afghan province, during the Taliban's reign-now a US prisoner at Guantanamo-has admitted to the court that Iranian agents offered the Taliban whatever help they needed to fight the US in October of 2001.

This only adds to my intense suspicion that Osama bin Laden is alive and well in Iran, with his wife, some sons, and Ayman al Zawahiri by his side in some posh villa.
But the recently released transcript corroborates earlier reporting on Iran's cooperation with the Taliban, as well as al Qaeda. Afghani opposition sources reported in early 2002 that the Iranians helped Taliban and al Qaeda members escape approaching U.S. forces through the Herat province. For example, Time Magazine reported:
An adviser to [Herat] warlord Ismail Khan told TIME that shortly before the U.S. bombing campaign began in October, a high-ranking Iranian official connected to the hard-line supreme leader Ayatollah Khameini had been dispatched to Kabul to offer secret sanctuary to Taliban and al Qaeda fugitives. The Iranian official was apparently trapped in Kabul during the bombing, and remained there until the

Northern Alliance took control of the city. Although the Iranians despised the Taliban for their persecution of Shiite Muslims in Afghanistan, their hatred for the U.S. may have run deeper.

And, according to sources in Herat, the Taliban and al Qaeda took the Iranians up on their offer. Shortly before Herat's Taliban garrison fled in November, a convoy of 50 off-road vehicles carrying some 250 senior Taliban and al Qaeda members allegedly crossed over into Iran, using a smugglers' route through the hills about 20 miles north of the city. A Western diplomat in Afghanistan claims that groups of Taliban and al Qaeda are still threading their way through the mountains of central Afghanistan and heading for the Iranian border. "The Iranian Revolutionary Guard has an eye on everything that happens along the border," says the diplomat. "Of course they know that Taliban and al Qaeda fighters are getting across."

The air over Jerusalem
Greek friends, who are not exactly pro-Israel and who believe that if there were no "settlers" there'd be no Hamas, and that the 1967 borders are the most reasonable solution to achieving peace, unhesitatingly also tell me "except for Jerusalem of course, that has always been a Jewish city, it belongs to Israel." I don't know whether to cry or to laugh.

If you've visited Jerusalem, please tell us what it was like for you. Is it a city "dauntingly alien, fettered by the past", is the air over Jerusalem "saturated with prayers and dreams" as poet Yehuda Amichai describes?

The Port Mafia
Things I didn't know about US ports:

1. The International Longshoreman's Association, a union, controls all hiring.

2. They are heavily mafia-entrenched, even more so than most labor unions.

3. The Justice Department is suing 31 ILA leaders, their entire executive board, since 06/2005, for violating the RICO act.
In July 2005, the U.S. Department of Justice filed suit under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) against the ILA, which targets the entire 31-member ILA executive council, including the president, secretary-treasurer, executive vice president, general vice president and more than two dozen others.

In a press release accompanying the suit, the Justice Department notes, "For decades the waterfront has been the setting for corruption and violence stemming from organized crime's influence over labor unions operating there, including the ILA and its affiliated locals, as well as port-related businesses. Since the late 1950s, two organized crime families -- the Gambino family and the Genovese family -- have shared control of various ports, with the Gambino family primarily exercising its influence at commercial shipping terminals in Brooklyn and Staten Island, and the Genovese family primarily controlling those in Manhattan, New Jersey and the Port of Miami."


Now isn't it awfully convenient that they give millions of dollars a year to Democrats, $7 million in 2004 alone?
Union bosses who would rob their members of pensions and health benefits, extort money to secure jobs on the docks, and use the docks to run gambling, loan sharking and other illegal enterprises could just as easily facilitate terrorists hoping to slip agents or weapons into the country, perhaps unwittingly, for the right price. But few in Washington seem to have considered the risk. The Dubai deal is not the only port issue that deserves more congressional scrutiny; ILA corruption surely deserves a close look as well.
What a perfect storm this Dubai ports deal was for the Democrats, a grand opportunity to throw their generous mobster benefactors a bone by embarrassing the President who's threatening to put them out of business.
