For a dead guy, he sure makes a lot of statements
According to Bin Laden's latest press release, the West is waging a Zionist crusade war against Islam. He called on the mujahedeen and their supporters to defend Islam, specifically by going to fight the "crusader plunderers" in Sudan. Just like these mujahedeen and their supporters have been doing all these years.

Anyway, I don't think bin Laden is dead and I don't think he's in Iran either. I believe he's still in the same area where he's been for the last few years, the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Feinstein: Traitor
A thimbleful of cognac goes to Bruce Tefft for this one.

Senator Feinstein, not content with undermining existing war efforts, has now decided to preemptively undermine future war efforts as well. You might call it the Feinstein Doctrine. She handed China's geriatric dictatorship a huge gift recently when she informed them that she, and her fellow travelers, do not believe that the US has an obligation to defend the free people of Taiwan in case they are attacked by China. We'll just leave them hanging in the wind, like we did to the Vietnamese, and like we'd apparently love to treat the Iraqis. Senator Feinstein's comments do not occur in a vacuum; she has major financial interests, by way of marriage, in China's existing system. We're talking billions of dollars here. Next to an interest like that, what's principle? Nothing!
Feinstein is a longtime shill for Beijing, but she stunned even seasoned observers in recently proposing a joint U.S.-China presidential commission to initiate an "open dialogue" about human rights. This commission, said Feinstein, should look not simply at China's shortcomings, but also at the National Guard killing of students at Kent State University, the lynching of African-Americans and the beating of peaceful civil rights marchers, the government's forced internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II and the police beating of Rodney King.

No one believes Feinstein is sincere in calling for such an inquiry. Her suggestion, the object of great scorn in Congress, is simply a smokescreen to prevent a serious look at China's awful record. "She's a complete fraud," says one longtime congressional staffer. "She has no interest in human rights problems in China."

Feinstein's romance with China dates to the 1970s, when she was mayor of San Francisco and became close friends with Jiang Zemin, then mayor of Beijing and now China's president. In explaining her interest in U.S.-China relations, Feinstein has jokingly said, "In my last life I was Chinese."

It is not possible to confirm this, but her passion for Beijing is more likely tied to the fact that her husband in her current life, merchant banker Richard Blum, has substantial business and real estate interests in China. He manages $750 million in investments for about 70 companies, with a large chunk of that amount tied up in China. Blum is also a director of Shanghai Pacific Partners, a major import-export firm.

In 1994, Feinstein led the effort to renew most-favored-nation trade status for China at a time when her husband was preparing to invest $150 million of his clients' money, along with $2 million to $3 million of his own, in China.

Blum also sits on the board of directors of Northwest Airlines, a company in which he holds a 6 percent share. His interest in the firm may be one reason that China's rulers have been so friendly towards the company. Northwest obtained the first non-stop flights from the United States to China about a year ago. The company also recently formed an "alliance" with Air China, the big government-run airline, which means the two firms will cooperate in areas such as scheduling, marketing and promotions, as well as carrying each others' passengers.

A Feinstein aide denied that Blum's business affairs had any effect on Feinstein's positions on China.

Armenia, Armenia! Greece, Greece!
Has there ever been an Orthodox Easter in Jerusalem when priests and worshippers didn't beat each other up? 'Holy Fire' Ceremony Held in Jerusalem. I'm still curious about how they pull off the miracle of the Holy Light.
Tempers flared as thousands of worshippers waited to pass through security barricades into Jerusalem's Old City. Some priests and pilgrims shoved and punched police. Inside the church, people scuffled with each other and with officers as they waited for the ceremony to begin.

The Greek and Armenian Orthodox patriarchs in the Holy Land descended into the church's underground tomb to bring out the flame. Worshippers clutching bundles of unlit tapers and torches waited in the darkened church for the church leaders to emerge.

When they reappeared with lighted torches, church bells pealed. Worshippers cheered, shrieked "Christ, Christ," and ululated. The flames were passed around to the thousands of faithful and light and smoke filled the cavernous church within seconds.

The ritual dates back at least 1,200 years. The precise details of the flame's source are a closely guarded secret, but some believe it appears spontaneously from Christ's burial area as a message from Jesus on the eve of the Orthodox Easter that he has not forgotten his followers.

"My connection to Jesus is stronger, my connection to Jerusalem is stronger now," said Jeanette Gennetian, 66, of Watertown, Mass, a member of the Armenian Apostolic church.

Religious observations historically have touched off clashes over protocol among the different Orthodox denominations. Groups of people Saturday shouted, "Armenia, Armenia" in Armenian, and "Greece, Greece" in English.

On Friday, screaming Coptic priests threw punches over where and how long different sects would stand during the Good Friday service.

ספירת העומר
While many people know the phrase (popularized in a children's song) that Moshe said to Pharoah: "Let my people go!", most do not quote the full sentence: כה אמר ה׳ שלח עמי ויעבדוני - "So said Hashem, 'Let my people go, and they will serve me'".

German Germanophobia
There's something creepy about Germans' unwillingness to be patriotic. It seems like rubbing their sordid history in; it seems self-indulgent and somehow decadent. I want to shake a modern German and point out that, hey, you didn't launch World War II. Worst, it makes it clear that Germany seems to have collectively learned the wrong lesson from their mistake. It's not love of country that's at fault here, people. It's genocide. It's the lust for war and world conquest for its own sake. It's the elevation of will over morality. It's the abandonment of human compassion.

Go ahead and love your counry, you dorks. That wasn't what you did wrong! When you pretend that loving your country and your people was the problem, you just provoke free thinkers into thinking "this is inane. There's nothing wrong with loving my country, any more than there's anything wrong with loving my mother and father." You end up with neo-Nazis running around heiling and goose-stepping, while real Germans are aghast to see their own flag.

Sheesh!
It's almost as though Berlin was following a capital city checklist when the city was revived as Germany's political hub in the late 1990s. Dramatic government quarter complete with flashy architecture? Check. Headquarters of major think tanks and foundations? Check. National monuments? Check. Lots of flags? Ummmm. Wait a sec. Flags? Somebody forgot the flags.

Berlin is an odd world capital: Whereas cities like Washington, London and Lisbon relish in a little flag-flying patriotism, Berlin shies away from the black, red and gold tricolor. Sure you'll find it on the four corners of the parliament building. But elsewhere? Forget about it. Almost no German corporation flies a flag outside its headquarters, like British banks in The City do. And flags in front lawns Long Island style? No way.

Across the rest of Germany, it's the same story. National pride, especially when it comes to publicly displaying a love, or even a mild affinity, for Germany is still simply taboo. When Horst K�hler left a plum job as head of the International Monetary Fund to become Germany's president -- mostly a ceremonial position -- in 2004, he said in his speech, "I love Germany." Reuters reported at the time that the sentence "sent a hush through the packed Reichstag chamber."

Which goes a long way toward explaining the dearth of the black-red-gold. Sixty-plus years after the end of World War II, German patriotism just ain't in the cards. Even the memorials the country builds these days are more anti-monuments. The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is just the most recent example.
