Speak up
From Campus Watch:



"According to Sharansky, it is the silence of the majority of Jews on campus that permits pro-Palestinian propaganda, consisting in part of Middle East Study Centers funded privately by Arab countries, to influence apathetic peers.



"Those Middle East Study Centers usually invite one Palestinian and one extremely leftist Israeli, so that the Palestinian looks like a very rational guy," said Sharansky. "It is absolutely ridiculous. The moderate Israeli voice is not heard there."



The only way to combat the anti-Israel bias, he said, is to speak up.



"I found that when people are not afraid and they know how to debate, when they know the facts and they how to present them, it is usually very easy to cause change."



Change toward more balance on campuses is the goal of the Write On For Israel program.



Sponsored by The Jewish Week and the Avi Chai Foundation, the program aims to educate Jewish high school students about Jewish history and media bias about Israel in order to better equip them to speak up."

Breaking Newz from Broken Newz
Veterans of the TV series “Love Boat? joined ranks with tobacco-chewing, beer-swilling Bass Boat Veterans in a news conference that criticized Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry.



Along with the much-publicized Swift Boat Vets, the Love Boat Vets and Bass Boat Vets virtually guarantee that three-fourths of the U.S. voting public who ever floated on water will not vote for Kerry.



Kerry aides called the announcement “disheartening? and said their candidate would attempt to “grab the votes of anyone who’s been on a train.?

Schlesinger Report
Abu Ghraib reports blow apart allegation of a "culture of permissiveness."



Since Operation Enduring Freedom began in October 2001, the U.S. has handled about 50,000 detainees in Afghanistan, Iraq and other venues of the war on terror. Among those, about 300 allegations of abuse have arisen. And as of this month 155 investigations have resulted in 66 substantiated cases of mistreatment. Only about a third of those cases were related to interrogation, while another third happened at the point of capture, "frequently under uncertain, dangerous and violent circumstances."



So notes Tuesday's report from the Independent Panel to Review DOD Detention Operations, empowered in May by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and chaired by former Pentagon chief James Schlesinger. The report offers invaluable perspective on the abuse scandal at Abu Ghraib and is devastating to those who've sought to pin blame on an alleged culture of lawlessness going all the way to the top of the Bush Administration. John Kerry must be even more disoriented by the Swift boat story than he appears if he thinks now's the time to call for Mr. Rumsfeld's resignation.

Iraqi Police Force
Iraqi police cadet Meqdad al-Izzawi once served Saddam Hussein as a navy officer. Now, he says he is taking one of the most dangerous jobs in the new Iraq because he wants to serve his people.



"My hope is to execute the law in Iraq and restore stability to the Iraqi people, because we never enjoyed security, even under Saddam Hussein," said the 28-year-old al-Izzawi, one of 1,559 Iraqi recruits attending basic police training at a U.S.-run camp in the Jordanian desert.



Like al-Izzawi, fellow Iraqi recruit Abdul-Razzaq al-Qaissi signed up for the new police force because he was incensed by growing terrorism at home by insurgents and foreign fighters, including Jordanian militant Abu-Musab al-Zarqawi.

...



Al-Izzawi rejected the notion that Iraqi police are on the wrong side — the side of the Americans — pitted against insurgents that some depict as a resistance fighting foreign occupation.



"Iraqi police are not collaborators," he said. "They are good men, patriotic men, who work for their country."

...



Talal Hamed awaited his turn Wednesday at a shooting range managed by American instructors.



"I was hesitant to enroll in the program because I was afraid that my American instructors would treat me harshly, the way I saw some American soldiers treat my countrymen," said the 28-year-old Baghdad resident.



"But they are nice and I changed my mind," Hamed said.

The Jews of the World
"The Jewish people and the United States have a lot in common, both are successful, resourceful, adaptable, highly creative, inventive and hated. Like the Jews, Americans are increasingly the objects of hatred, fear, jealousy, bigotry, prejudice, violence and terror from all corners of the globe and the political spectrum.



In particular, America and Americans are now the target of a vicious, irrational, destructive, well-organized, well-defined, popular and widespread campaign of hatred, prejudice and hysteria similar to that directed against the Jews before World War II. Anti-Americanism has become as popular and as widespread as anti-Semitism was in the 1920s and 30s and its effects could be just as destructive and as tragic as the wave of anti-Semitism that gave rise to Adolph Hitler and the Final Solution.

...



Today, the problems of nations and peoples all over the world are blamed upon America. The collapse of the Argentine economy, human rights violations committed by Latin American dictators in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, vicious and oppressive governments in the Arab nations, starvation and poverty in Africa, are all blamed on America. The crack cocaine epidemic and the AIDS virus are both blamed upon the CIA. Some anti-American bigots even had the audacity to blame the Sept. 11, atrocity on the United States.



This nonsense is spread all over the world by the entertainment and news media. Many of these myths have become tenets of faith among the world's intellectuals. Hollywood movies, Arab newspapers, American network television and scholarly books are full of absurd anti-American conspiracy theories which are treated as historical facts. On a more basic level Americans and America are always portrayed as shallow, arrogant, imperialistic, violent and evil."
