There are Katyusha rockets falling in villages and towns all around them, but for the "squadron" of 30 Israeli Yogic Flyers assembled at a hotel on Lake Kinneret all is quiet. That's because they have managed to create a shield of invincibility around their gathering place. Now they are calling for another 235 Flyers to come and join them to create a shield that would, they say, cover all of Israel.
In an interview from the Nof Ginnosar Hotel near Tiberias on Saturday, the Prime Minister of the Peace Government of Israel and Yogic Flyer Alex Kutai called on the elected Israeli government to recruit a group of 265 Yogic Flyers who, through an advanced technique of Transcendental Meditation (TM), he asserted, would create a shield of invincibility around Israel and bring about an immediate cessation of violence with the Hizbullah.
Prime Minister Kutai, who is also the Chairman of the International Transcendental Meditation Society in Israel, said his elected counterpart Ehud Olmert had to urgently find a group of 265 people trained in the TM technique and maintain them in one location where they can generate an invincibility shield around Israel against all forms of war and violence, including road accidents, and keep the shield up permanently.
"Ten days before this latest round of violence broke out between Israel and the Hizbullah, we received an urgent message from the headquarters of the Global Government of World Peace that there was an immediate danger of violence in the region, and that each country had to mobilize its Yogic Flyers - those who practice the TM technique - to ward off the danger," Kutai said earnestly.
According to Kutai, the Yogic Flyer practices an advanced meditation technique in which his or her consciousness is brought to a level where thinking is without content, where the Flyer connects with the "source of all energy and intelligence - beyond any thought and at the same time the source of all thought." Kutai said this state is what physicists call the United Field of the Laws of Nature.
The number 265 should be sufficient, Kutai said, as it conforms exactly to the formula discovered by the overall leader of the Global Government of World Peace, Raja (King) Tony Nader. The formula postulates that the square root of one percent of a country's population is the right number of people needed to tap into a Collective Consciousness strong enough to create a shield of invincibility. Since Israel has an estimated 7 million inhabitants, one per cent is 70,000 and the square root of 70,000 is 264.575.
SYRIA is prepared to tell the US the whereabouts of al-Qaeda cells in Lebanon, Britain's Sky News television reported today.
Sky News said they had spoken to Syrian cabinet minister Amr Salem.
"Syria has real hard knowledge," the channel quoted him as saying.
A Sky News correspondent said the Syrians were offering to tell the US where many fundamentalists were.
He said the channel was told specifically there were cells of Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda terrorist network in Lebanon, and Syria knew of their whereabouts.
Since Syrian troops pulled out of Lebanon last year, the cells have grown, he said.
"We know where they are and we can tell you," the correspondent said Sky News was told Syria was prepared to say.
The channel also quoted Mr Salem as saying "Syria offers to be an intermediary between Iran and the United States" and "Syria can play an important role in Iraq".
Syrian deputy foreign minister Faisal Mukdad told Sky News yesterday Syria was ready to open a dialogue with the US to resolve the crisis in Lebanon.
"It has been Syria's ongoing position that we are ready to have a dialogue with the United States," he said.
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- Iran spent more than six months training and planning Hizbullah to prepare for its current war with Israel.
Western intelligence sources said the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps held a series of exercises with Hizbullah on the use of new weapons and techniques. The sources said IRGC also prepared arsenals of medium-range rockets and missiles in the Bekaa Valley and Syria to sustain any war with Israel.
"Iran's IRGC planned this war carefully throughout 2006," an intelligence source who monitors Iran said. "IRGC sent weapons and hundreds of volunteers through Damascus in a war designed to contain several stages."
The sources said Western intelligence agencies detected a high level of IRGC-Hizbullah coordination as early as April 2006. They said the Hizbullah conflict was planned in cooperation with Damascus, which agreed to the emergency deployment of Iranian troops in Syria.
Why has Tehran decided to play its Lebanese card now? Part of the answer lies in Washington’s decision last May to reverse its policy towards Iran by offering large concessions on its nuclear programme. Tehran interpreted that as a sign of weakness. Ahmadinejad believes that his strategy to drive the “infidel” out of the Islamic heartland cannot succeed unless Arabs accept Iran’s leadership.God's army has plans to run the whole Middle East
The problem is that since the Iranian regime is Shi’ite it would not be easy to sell it to most Arabs, who are Sunni. To overcome that hurdle, it is necessary to persuade the Arabs that only Iran is sincere in its desire and capacity to wipe Israel off the map. Once that claim is sold to the Arabs, so Ahmadinejad hopes, they would rally behind his vision of the Middle East instead of the “American vision”.
Sean McCormack, the State Department spokesman, said, “He has done an extraordinary job representing the U.S. during what has turned out to be an extraordinary time at the U.N., and Secretary Rice thinks he’s doing a terrific job.”
But over the past month, more than 30 ambassadors consulted in the preparation of this article, all of whom share the United States’ goal of changing United Nations management practices, expressed misgivings over Mr. Bolton’s leadership.
Representative Bill Delahunt of Massachusetts, the top Democrat on an international relations subcommittee that focuses on the United Nations, said that in a visit here last month he had encountered “frustration and resentment over the U.S. performance at the U.N.”
And outside experts also expressed concerns.
EVIL preacher Abu Hamza is to be moved to an isolated jail because prison chiefs fear he is forming a new terror group behind bars. The hook-handed cleric Hamza - serving seven years for whipping up race hate - has become a figurehead for impressionable young Muslims at South London's HMP Belmarsh. So he is to be switched to Parkhurst on the Isle of Wight - at least 30 minutes' sea journey from the mainland and with fewer Muslim inmates.HAMZA HOOKED
Bosses at Belmarsh believe Hamza, 47, has been stirring up more racial hatred in secret "brain washing" meetings and prayer sessions. And he is thought to be using The Muslim Boys, a hardcore gang of Islamic converts inside the jail with links to Al-Qaida, as henchmen. Dad-of-seven Hamza, who once branded Britain as "a toilet" but was happy to claim £12,000-a-year in benefits, is said to be furious at plans to move him next month and may mount a legal fight.
A Belmarsh source said: "Many of the Muslim inmates, particularly the younger lads, hang on his every word."
