פסח א׳ - פתיחה כללית
Tonight is ר״ח ניסן - Rosh Chodesh Nisan, the beginning of the Jewish month of Nisan, which means that Pesach is only 2 weeks away. The Gemara (Pesachim 6a) says that Shoalim ve-dorshim be-hilchot ha-Pesach kodem la-Pesach shloshim yom , we ask and teach about Pesach during the thirty days which precede the Pesach; perhaps we were yotzei (fulfilled our obligation) with the Parshat Parah post that attempted to connect Purim to Pesach and the Parshat Hachodesh post, but I thought a series of posts about Pesach would be appropriate.

Getting divorced while you sleep
Village elders in eastern India have ordered a man to leave his wife because he said "talaq", the Urdu word for divorce, three times in his sleep. According to the elders, that constitutes divorce under Islamic law and the couple will have to remarry if they want to be together, but only after being apart for at least 100 days and after the wife spends a night with another man and then gets divorced by him. It totally makes sense, doesn't it?

Iranian Navy to fire a missile of friendship
Tehran, Iran, Mar. 29 – Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) will begin large-scale naval exercises in the Persian Gulf and Sea of Oman on Friday by firing a Shahab-2 missile “to show Iran’s desire for peace and friendship with neighbouring countries”, the IRGC naval chief said on Wednesday.
Some gesture of friendship. They're also planning on building new "smart weapons" this year:
Tehran, Iran, Mar. 28 – Iran’s Defence Minister said that Tehran was planning to make use of new “smart weapons” to upgrade the armed forces within the next 12 months, the government-run news agency Fars reported on Monday.

Brigadier General Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar told military commanders in the southern province of Kohkiloueh-va-Bouyerahmad that the Islamic Republic’s armed forces would give a “decisive” and “destructive” blow to any possible aggression by “enemy” forces.

“As we have declared many times before, the response by the armed forces to any aggression to the country will be decisive and destructive so that the enemy regrets his actions”, the general said.

General Mohammad-Najjar was accompanying hard-line Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a cabinet trip to the province.

“With the very good progress that we have had in creating electronic technology, we have laid the groundwork to obtain technology to turn our ammunition into smart weapons to pinpoint and attack enemy targets with precision”, the Iranian Defence Minister said.
Rubbish...how can you have precision targeting without global satellite navigation? Do they think we'll just let them use our GPS satellites in a war? Galileo won't be ready until 2010, and it's lunacy to think that the Euros would let Iran use their satellites in a war with the US.

US gov bans all contact with Hamas
That's more like it, Condi!
JERUSALEM (Reuters) - The United States has ordered its diplomats and contractors not to have any contacts with Palestinian ministries once a Hamas-led government is sworn in on Wednesday, U.S. officials said.

They said the directive was sent to U.S. officials by email.

Contacts will still be permitted with President Mahmoud Abbas's office and non-Hamas members of the Palestinian parliament. The order takes effect from 6 p.m. on Wednesday, when Abbas is expected to swear in the new cabinet.

The Sino-Russian open conspiracy against the free world
Peter Brookes has an important article at the NY Post about Chinese and Russian espionage and collusion. He paints a chilling picture of resurgent Communist subversion in the free world. The Sino-Russian strategic romance is a looming threat far more dangerous to the free world than Islam could ever dream of being.
March 27, 2006 -- CHINA+RUSSIA = TROUBLE
A BLOSSOMING Sino-Russian romance is undercutting U.S. global interests on an unprecedented scale. Indeed, Russia and China seem to have their eyes on restraining European and Japanese power, too.

Start with the United Nations, where Russia and China are hampering U.S.- and European Union-led efforts to address Iran's nuclear program. It's been weeks since the Security Council got official notice that Iran had violated its nonproliferation promises - yet the U.N. body has yet to manage to even condemn Tehran's actions, much less impose economic sanctions.

No surprise: Both Moscow and Beijing have way too much at stake to bully their buddy, Tehran. China has billions invested in Iran's oil/gas fields; Russia hopes to make its own billions by reprocessing Iranian reactor fuel. And both sell millions in advanced weapons to Iran.

Russian and Chinese unwillingness has also stalled the world's drive to contain and roll back North Korea's nuclear-weapons program. While Pyongyang may be an annoying, needy country cousin for Moscow and Beijing, neither minds that the issue causes nuclear-strength heartburn for Washington, exacerbating festering U.S.-South Korean alliance problems. China certainly doesn't lose sleep over North Korean missiles bore-sighted on Japan, either.

Meanwhile, both have pushed for the closing of U.S. bases in Central Asia (used to support the Afghanistan mission). They've succeeded in Uzbekistan, but so far fallen short in Kyrgyzstan.

And Russia and China last summer conducted their first-ever joint military exercises, which included 10,000 military, intelligence and internal security forces. Both capitals claimed the drills weren't aimed at any country - not that anyone in the U.S., Taiwan or Japan believed that . . . Rumors abound that another series of joint exercises is planned later this year.

(...)

Moreover, both nations have been cooperating on foreign and military intelligence matters since the end of the Cold War, and are growing counterintelligence problems for the United States, Europe and Japan. With the end of Cold War-era travel restrictions, Chinese and Russian spooks see open societies as easy pickings.

According to the FBI, China is now America's greatest spy threat. But Russian intel operations - under Russian President Vladimir Putin (a former KGB Colonel) - are at an all-time, post-Berlin Wall high, too. Just last week came news of Russia giving U.S. war plans and troop-movements to the Saddam Hussein regime just before and after the 2003 invasion.

Chinese espionage rings have also been exposed in Europe, while Russia has redoubled its efforts there in recent years. And Japan's weak espionage laws make it a spy's happy hunting ground.

Helpful Hints for avoiding Hotel Hell
Over the past 6 months, our family has been on an odyssey of sorts – a cross-country move involving significant travel before the actual relocation, and once-a-week (or more) travel for 3 months after the move. In the course of that time, we have stayed in over 30 hotels, from New England to New Mexico, from Orlando to Oregon. I think I’ve had a little experience in what conditions will deprive you of your sanity and sleep.

We’ll be staying put for a while now, but I believe you are given experiences so that you can share what you've learned with others, and in that spirit, I give you the following Helpful Hints:

1. Stay home.

If #1 is not an option, then pay close attention to the following suggestions:

2. When choosing a hotel, observe its proximity to the highway. Choose a hotel on the side *opposite* the exit ramp. Otherwise, the air breaks of exiting trucks will drive you nuts and keep you up all night.

3. If a hotel is cheap, there’s a reason it’s cheap. Most likely, the walls and floors are paper thin; you’ll be able to hear every detail of Joe Bob’s day at the race, every word of “Terminator: Rise of the Machines” and the skinny runt kid next door will sound like Godzilla. (Thankfully, we were not subjected to any of Twinkle’s business transactions.) It will drive you nuts and keep you up all night.

4. Before moving into your room, survey the area immediately around your room. Do you see any signs of the following within two doors of your room?
Elevator
Stairwell
Ice machine/vending
Hotel Laundry
Guest Laundry
Housekeeping
Boiler Room

If you do, go to the desk immediately and demand a room change. Any one of those can easily produce enough noise to drive you nuts and keep you up all night - or wake you up long before you're ready.

5. OK, you’re into your room:
Do turn on the heating/AC unit. Does the fan sound loud to you? If you think it’s loud now, yes, it’s one of those things that could drive you nuts and keep you up all night.
Do unplug the refrigerator (unless you’re using it). How something that little can be so loud, I’ll never know, but the compressor will drive you nuts and keep you up all night.
Do check the alarm clock – is it set to go off at some ungodly hour? My suspicions center on stiffed housekeeping staff…
Do check for the presence of batteries in the TV remote before getting into bed.
Do unplug the phone unless you’re expecting calls, especially if you observe any groupings of students under any guise. (In which case, you’d probably be better off getting back into your car and finding a place not so infested.)

So ends "Helpful Hints." I do not claim this to be an exhaustive list, merely observations and lessons hard learned. You will note that advice on navigating the perils of sharing a room with small children are curiously absent; perhaps that is a post for another time.

Now, it's your turn - share your own tips and travails! Happy Traveling!
