Torture at Wal-Mart
I visited our friends at EI-EI-O and saw the headline of this article:



Torture of Palestinians in the Heart of Romantic Landscape



Of course I had to see what kind of Torture can be performed in the Heart of Romantic Landscape, so I read the stupid thing.



Well. It has nothing to do with torture. It's about waiting at checkpoints. Apparently there are waiting lines at checkpoints and the air in Israel is dusty.



So I would like to ask Mr. Salem who wrote this article: You wanna talk about torture, Mr. Salem? I say forget the friggin' checkpoints and check out Wal-Mart. Lots of cement, no romance, no landscape, and yes, there's fear involved. Have you seen the greeters?



And good luck finding a guard (ok, salesperson) to help you. And provided that you've found what you're looking for, you drag yourself to the checkpoint (ok, cashier stand) and you're thirsty and tired and achy and there's a line of 20 cars (ok, carts) ahead of you. And you stand and wait. And wait. And wait. And there are babies crying, just like in Israeli checkpoints. And the air is dusty (well, it actually stinks of stale popcorn, but just as bad.)



And you finally get to the checkpoint for inspection (ok, cashier stand) and you see that you've picked the wrong size sheets.



At least Palestinians have a choice - stop the Jihad. Where else can I get cheap sheets, I ask you?

No shock here
Stung by criticism about its role in fighting terrorism, Saudi Arabia has launched a radio advertising campaign in 19 U.S. cities citing the Sept. 11 commission report as proof that it has been a loyal ally in the fight against al-Qaida.



The ads don't address commission criticism of Saudi Arabia, which the report called "a problematic ally in combating Islamic extremism." It said Saudi-funded Islamic schools have been exploited by extremists and, while Saudi cooperation against terrorism improved after the Sept. 11 attacks, " significant problems remained.



Amy Hawthorne, a Middle East specialist for the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said the ad campaign isn't surprising for Saudi Arabia. The wealthy kingdom doesn't want a reputation linking it to terrorism and has run ads before to influence American public opinion, she said.

Crucifixion, resurrection, injustice and shock
Greece's top two athletes, facing a state prosecutor's investigation over missed drug tests and a motorbike crash, left a hospital Tuesday declaring they were innocent and should be allowed to compete in the Olympic Games. "After crucifixion comes resurrection," Olympic 200 meters champion Costas Kenteris told reporters swarming round his car as he left the Athens hospital. "It's a big injustice, I have never used banned substances -- honestly," said Kenteris. "All these people who crucify me on TV are the same people who wanted to be photographed with me after every success."



Greek Athletes Shocked by Accusations



Meanwhile, in other Olympic News:



When the Palestinian delegation marched into the Olympic Stadium at the opening ceremonies last week, they were warmly welcomed. When the Iraqis came in, they got a standing ovation and the loudest cheers of the night. Even the Americans were greeted with polite, if unenthusiastic, applause. But the small Israeli team — 36 athletes competing in 14 sports — was met with quiet so complete it was shocking.



"I noticed the silence," Yaron Michaeli, an Israeli TV journalist seconded to the team as press attaché, said yesterday. "Maybe they had their reasons, but it's the opposite of what the Olympics are supposed to be."



An Israeli weeps for a foe never fought

Shocking news
John Kerry leads over President Bush in California with 54 percent to 38 percent. The poll found 56 percent disapproving of Bush's job of president and 40 percent approving.



A Field Poll of 633 Californians between July 30 and Aug. 4 released earlier this month found that 51 percent favored Kerry against 40 percent for Bush.



The PPIC poll also found that Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger enjoys very high popularity in the state. Among likely voters, 69 percent said they approved of his job.



Shock in California - Kerry has the lead



We are shocked. Shocked.
