Saudi pig jailed, will not fight deportation
Woman jailed in housekeeper slavery case
CENTENNIAL, Colo. - A woman was sentenced to two months in jail Tuesday for effectively stealing the services of an Indonesian woman who prosecutors said was held as a virtual slave for four years.

Sarah Khonaizan, 35, a Saudi citizen who lives in suburban Denver, also was ordered on the theft charge to pay $90,000 in restitution and was ordered not to have any contact with the 24-year-old woman.

Last week, a federal judge sentenced Khonaizan to five years' probation and ordered her to pay $26,275 in restitution after pleading guilty to harboring an illegal immigrant.

Her attorney, Forrest Lewis, has said she wants to return to Saudi Arabia and will not fight deportation.

Prosecutors and
FBI agents accused Khonaizan and her husband, Homaidan Al-Turki, 37, of hiding the woman's passport and forcing her to care for the family for four years.

She slept on a mattress on the basement floor and was paid less than $2 a day, according to testimony.

Al-Turki was convicted in June of sexually abusing and imprisoning the woman. He faces a federal trial in October on other charges in the case.
Saudis believe they should be allowed to treat all of humanity like this.

When publishers are desperate
Simon & Schuster is set to publish "The Expected One" by Kathleen McGowan who claims she's a descendant of Jesus Christ. You'd think that as a proper descendant of Jesus, Ms McGowan would at least iron her clothes before she has her picture taken.
After flying thousands of miles to trace the mythical travels of Mary Magdalene after Jesus’s crucifixion, and having convinced herself that she is a direct descendant of the two, Kathleen has written what she describes as a ‘partly autobiographical’ novel.

Rights to The Expected One have already been sold in 20 languages, and when it is published next month by Simon & Schuster, it is predicted to blaze a trail left smouldering since The Da Vinci Code. Kathleen’s claims are sure to ignite disbelief, cynicism and justifiable anger. Yet she is unrepentant.

Iranian Jews toe the line
Iran's Jews caught again in no man's land
Moris Motamed's political headquarters highlight the well-practiced survival skills of Iran's remaining 25,000 Jews — caught again in a political no man's land by the fighting between Israel and the Iranian-backed Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Any public expression of sympathy for Israel would invite a sharp crackdown from authorities and hard-line Islamic groups.
...
Last week, Jews in the southern city of Shiraz held a pro-Hezbollah rally that was covered by state-run television — a sign that the march was likely overseen by the Islamic regime to reinforce the idea of national solidarity.

The Web site of the Tehran Jewish Community includes statements opposing Israel's military offensive in the Gaza Strip and praising uranium enrichment by Iranian scientists.

China's spy priests
The Reds in China never miss an opportunity. Let the Vatican be foolish enough to consider compromising with the Communists and stabbing its Taiwanese flock in the back. It's a sorry sight to see the Vatican, once Communism's staunchest and most formidable enemy, bowing and scraping to China's totalitarian dictatorship.
Western intelligence services say China is taking advantage of a thaw in ties with the Vatican to send its state-ordained priests abroad, according to a newsletter.

The Paris-based Intelligence Online reported last week that changes in the balance of power between the underground, unofficial Catholic Church and the official, communist-dominated Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association are under way following recent talks between envoys from Rome to Beijing,

The official church is headed by Fu Tieshan and Liu Bainian, also known as the Red Pope.


Chinese counterintelligence and Liu regard the Vatican and unofficial Catholics as potential threats, similar to the Falun Gong sect. The government denounced the Vatican’s appointment of 40 bishops in the unofficial church in February.

“China's foreign intelligence service Guoanbu is taking advantage of the thaw with the Vatican to send government-approved Chinese priests abroad," the report stated. "They are, in fact, intelligence operatives, as European counter-intelligence agencies have come to realize in recent months.”
The "Red Pope". Isn't that the creepiest thing you've ever heard? He looks like a sleaze too, click the link to see his picture.

Shanghai prepares for nuclear war
Hmm.
Shanghai has constructed a massive underground bunker complex capable of sheltering 200,000 people from a nuclear attack, a local newspaper reported.

The million-square-foot complex connects to shopping centers, office buildings, apartment buildings and the subway system via miles of tunnels, the Shanghai Morning Post said in an exclusive report.

The newspaper said the complex has water, electricity, lighting, ventilation and protective doors, and can support life for as long as two weeks.

The Saturday report didn't say when the complex was finished or whether it was built with any specific threats in mind.

Shanghai was hit by air raids during World War II and, like most cities, dug vast underground complexes during the Cold War, when leader Mao Zedong believed a nuclear war with the Soviet Union was imminent.

In recent years, the city of 20 million has recovered its role as China's financial center and is a key business and manufacturing hub.
