Syria's Proconsul of Lebanon Killed
The Big Pharaoh expresses some skepticism that Ghazi Kanaan really killed himself. I agree; I think Assad just broke another one of his many toys.
Breaking News: Syria’s Ghazi Kanaan “Commits Suicide"

Syria’s news agency announced that interior minister Ghazi Kanaan has committed suicide. Kanaan was also Syria’s powerful intelligence chief in Lebanon, literally the virtual ruler of the country.

Now, there is a rule in the Middle East that says as follows: never believe the news of the suicide of some politician. “They killed him". That was my first reaction when I read the news headline and I believe it will be the reaction of many across the region, especially in Lebanon.

Al Arabiya website stated that Kanaan, who was questioned in the investigation of Rafik Hariri’s assassination, mentioned that he was willing to provide information provided that he be outside Syria. Ummm, I’m smelling something here.

So the questions we have are: If Kanaan was killed, why was he killed? What information did he know? Did Kanaan know about Hariri’s assassination plot before it happened? Was Kanaan willing to speak out in order to save himself?

I just can’t imagine how stupid the Syrian thugs can become. “Committing suicide�? is such a very old way of getting rid of unwanted politicians in the Middle East. Can’t the Syrians come up with something new?

"طلب الحماية لحياته"

من ناحية أخرى، كان مصدر مطلع قد كش�? لوكالة "قدس برس" �?ي النص�? الأول من الشهر الماضي أن مسؤولا سوريا ر�?يع المستوى، يقوم باتصالات عبر أحد الدبلوماسيين الغربيين للإ�?صاح عن معلومات، قد تكش�? ت�?اصيل اغتيال رئيس الوزراء اللبناني السابق ر�?يق الحريري، مقابل تو�?ير حماية له.

وقال المصدر الذي �?ضل عدم ذكر اسمه، بأن وزير الداخلية الحالي اللواء غازي كنعان، يسعى حاليا لدى أحد الدبلوماسيين الغربيين، والذي تح�?ظ على ذكر اسمه لإيصال رسالة إلى رئيس �?ريق التحقيق الدولي ديتلي�? ميليس.

وكش�? المصدر بأن غازي الذي أمضى مستعد للتعاون وكش�? ت�?اصيل الاغتيال وسلسة الأوامر التي مر عبرها التن�?يذ، مقابل وضعه ضمن برنامج حماية الشهود.
"He requested the protection of his life"
from another angle, a high-placed source revealed to the Quds Press in the first half of the past month that a high Syrian official was in communication with one of the Western diplomats offering to tell all, and reveal the details of the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri in exchange for guarantees of his own safety.

And the source, who preferred not to be named, that the present Interior Minister Ghazi Kanaan was the one seeking one of the Western diplomats (...) in exchange for being placed in a witness protection program.

Advancing Terror in Eastern Europe
Ukrainian students have now a chance to learn the religion of peace in their universities. The lessons are provided by the masters of deception: Supreme Council on culture of Islamic Republic of Iran.
Iran Embassy to Ukraine will deliver lectures about Islam for students of the Kiev institutes of higher education, as reported by the representative of Supreme Council on culture of Islamic Republic of Iran, Hasan Rahimpura.

According to him, "Western Mass-Medias identify Islam with phenomena, against which this religion fights."

"Our views have never come to war with Christians and Jews," declared Mr. Rahimpura.

He underlined that he wants to tell Ukrainians that "picture of Islam, described by the West, is completely different from real Islam."
Last time I checked, "Western Mass-Medias" were overrun by jihadists and Islam apologists. So the effort of mullahs' embassy in Ukraine seems superfluous.

End of an era: USAF Rhine-Main airbase closes
Key US Rhine-Main airbase in Germany closes
The United States Air Force Rhein-Main airbase, a key military player in West Germany during the Cold War, finally closed its gates on Monday after 60 years in operation.

The base played a vital role during the years of east-west tensions in central Europe until the collapse of communism, German reunification in 1990 and the reduction of NATO forces based in Germany.

The symbolic closure was marked by a special ceremony. American activity was set to cease entirely at the end of December.

The operators of nearby Frankfurt airport plan to take over the terrain for extensions to civilian traffic.
Bye.

South Korean Catholics back up their words with cold hard cash
People who are opposed to religious pro-life scruples often make the argument "well, would you adopt my baby if I hadn't aborted it?", which is laughable considering how many thousands of babies are adopted from overseas by American couples desperate to raise children. The Catholic church in Korea is putting up ten million dollars for adult stem cell research, in order to hopefully preempt any funding for embryonic stem cell research, which it finds morally repellent.

South Korea Catholic Church offers $10 Million for Adult Stem Cell Research
SEOUL, October 7, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Catholic Church in South Korea announced that it would fund adult stem cell research with its own funds. The Archdiocese of Seoul said it would provide 10 billion won (US$9.6 million), with most of the money coming straight from diocesan coffers.

Bishop Yeom Su-jeong, head of the funding committee said, “We plan to devote ourselves to saving human dignity above everything else ... and raise awareness of respecting lives."

Contrary to the claims of much of the secular media, the Catholic Church does not oppose stem cell research. In Australia, the Archdiocese of Sydney contributed $100,000 to support research that led to a major breakthrough in adult stem cells.

The Catholic Church of Korea also plans to award an annual 300 million won grant to a scientist working in adult stem cell research. The bishop said in a statement, “We established the committee to encourage and support adult stem cell research which can help patients with incurable diseases essentially in line with the Catholic creeds."

“Keeping and saving lives ... is the mission of the times that our church must accomplish in the face of whatever difficulties," Bishop Yeom said.

South Korea has made international news in recent months because of the work of Dr. Hwang Woo-suk who is progressing from using and killing “spare" embryos left over after in vitro fertilization to human cloning which, he claims, will provide genetically matched cells. The need to match a patient’s cells derives from the immune system rejection that is one of the many medical barriers to using embryo cells in direct therapies.

Dr. Hwang’s work, while acclaimed around the world, has been vehemently opposed by the local Catholic Church which recognizes the inherent dignity of human beings at the embryonic stage. Hwang, continues to make the bizarre claim that because he will not allow any of his clones to live past a certain point, that he is not engaging in ‘human cloning.’ The Catholic Church, along with basic principles of the science of human embryology, rejects this distinction as an inherent contradiction.

Thus far, the value of cloned and IVF-derived embryonic stem cells for disease treatment remains entirely speculative. Cloning and embryo research, despite the hype, have yet to provide a single cure or treatment, whereas adult stem cells are routinely used to treat many diseases including various forms of cancer and more breakthroughs are coming regularly.
I can't do anything but applaud this. via Richard at Hyscience.
