Starve Your Cancer With A Big Fat Joint
Well, well, well...the New Scientist has great news for us potheads.
The team tested the effects of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol in 30 mice. They found the marijuana extract inhibited the expression of several genes related to the production of a chemical called vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF).

VEGF is critical for angiogenesis, which allows tumours to grow a network of blood vessels to supply their growth. The cannabinoid significantly lowered the activity of VEGF in the mice and two human brain cancer patients, the study showed.
The social cancer of stinky, self-righteous potheads telling me why Bush is so bad continues unabated.

Teach the Children
This is what's happening at Duke University:
(Thats not what they called it, obviously, but please... look at this manipulative way to get into public classrooms and shape the future...)
Palestine Education Project (PEP for short)
(This is for young children.....around America)
Ora Wise....led this session...
Here is what people were told to do:
Contact teachers all over the country..
NOT PRINCIPALS... go directly to teachers...so you can get in....go to inner city schools. Speak to minority kids...Thats what Ora Wise does...
Once in a classroom, here is how you teach about the Israeli oppression:
Give a kid some water, but give other kids a lot of water.
Give some kids toys and other kids no toys.
Talk about the comparisons. The Israelis have the toys, the water. The Palestinians have nothing
(and it is the fault of Israelis. Blame the Israelis)
Talked about how you educate young children in your classrooms about the injustices...
Get children to draw photos of their families in their homes.
Then show them all the photos of what a Palestinian child would draw, reflecting oppression.
(you can order these special pictures through this project)
Get a hoolahoop. Get the classroom of kids to stand close together around the hoolahoop.
Then put a child in the middle of the hoolahoop.
The child in the hoolahoop is the Israeli. He has lots of space. All the water.
Everyone else is crowded and uncomfortable....

Pour Encourager Les Autres
Eris seems to have rolled the apple of discord into Zarqawi's cave, although I rather doubt this one was marked "for the fairest". Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch points out a very interesting Sunday Times article that describes a purge that touched 20 heads in Zarqawi's group.
UP TO 20 people suspected of taking part in an operation to free the British hostage Ken Bigley have been murdered in a purge of the terrorist group headed by Iraq’s most wanted man, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, it was claimed yesterday.
I find this piece of information suspect:
Al-Zarqawi is said to have been incensed that his group had been compromised and ordered the insurgents to behead Bigley.
because it makes it sound like Bigley might have had a chance, had he not tried to escape. I don't really think the poor guy had much chance at all.
I derive a grim sense of satisfaction from the murders of the 20 people. It shows weakness and disarray in their ranks.
The details emerged a week after a Saudi described as a spokesman for Tawhid and Jihad claimed the guards had received a large sum of money from British intelligence.

A western military intelligence source said MI6 had paid a network of local Iraqis for information in the hunt for Bigley, but insisted that the principal aim had been to kill or capture al-Zarqawi.
Ah, confirmed: Zarqawi feels the cold fingers on his collar, reaching for his neck. It's hard to believe that many people in such a highly fanatical group were on the take. I think maybe two of them, four at the most. So an example had to be made of enough people for Zarqawi to feel safe, or at least feel that he'd deterred any further double-agentry, and the number was 20? That's pretty high. 20 dead terrorists, by other terrorists' hands. Works for me.

The Sinews Of War
Where's the money, Lebowski? Bryan Bender at the Globe wants you to think it went up in smoke. Kinda like the Globe's credibility with me. They're a wholly owned subsidiary of the New York Times. Don't forget they're the home of Mike Barnicle (who is now punditing for bottom of the barrel MSNBC, him and Ron Reagan both), the fake Abu Ghraib porn, and longtime Kerry shill Michael Kranish too. I think at this point it's pretty obvious they're part of the Kerry campaign…this WorldNetDaily piece contains the following gobsmacker:
When James Sanders and I wrote First Strike: TWA Flight 800 and the Attack on America, we speculated that the timing of the Globe hit on Al Gore in September 2001 was not coincidental. What raised our suspicion was that Sen. John Kerry twice that month referred to TWA Flight 800 as a terrorist act, the first time on the "Larry King Show" on Sept. 11, the second time on "Hardball" with Chris Matthews on Sept. 24. I saw the latter. I have the transcripts for both. These were not slips of the tongue. The Globe hit fell in between.

The recent Kranish revelations greatly strengthen our case that the Globe reporters were working in conjunction with Kerry's people. Their inspiration, after all, had to come from somewhere. Kranish and Glen Johnson often team up on political articles. In a recent Washingtonian article, veteran observer Harry Jaffe singles out Kranish, Johnson and Robinson for "early campaign coverage awards." He cites Johnson for his work exposing Howard Dean, Robinson for his work revealing George Bush's National Guard record, and Kranish, more benignly, for his "seminal Kerry stories."

"After the events of Sept. 11," Sanders and I wrote in First Strike, "the story of how Al Gore helped subvert the investigation into TWA 800 and undermine airport security may yet prove to be a career-killer. Kerry's "slips" may put Gore out of the race even before he gets in."

In mid December 2002, right after he had made a powerful re-entry into the political scene, Gore "surprised" political analysts by dropping out of the presidential race. Advanced copies of our book hit Washington two weeks before.

I don't really believe our book put Gore out of the race. I am more inclined than ever to give that credit to Kerry and his friends at the Boston Globe. Scarier still, the Globe is wholly owned by the New York Times.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not shedding any tears for that sad sack, Al Gore. I'm just pointing out what a gang of biased hacks they are over at the Globe. Now that I've put their credibility to rest ("no fair citing our record!" I imagine them crying) let's have a look at Bryan Bender's piece.
About half of the roughly $5 billion in Iraq reconstruction funds disbursed by the US government in the first half of this year cannot be accounted for, according to an audit commissioned by the United Nations, which could not find records for numerous rebuilding projects and other payments.
Now that's interesting. Why in blazes is the UN auditing us in Iraq?
One chunk of the money -- $1.4 billion -- was deposited into a local bank by Kurdish leaders in northern Iraq but could be tracked no further: The auditors reported that they were shown a deposit slip but could find no additional records to explain how the money was used or to prove that it remains in the bank.
This I'm disturbed about. It may be the one nugget of genuine news in the story.
Hundreds of projects worth more than $100 million covered by the Commander's Emergency Response Program, designed to allow US military officers to quickly fund small reconstruction projects around the country, had either no contracts on file, no evidence that bids were obtained through competition, no purchase invoices, or no payment vouchers.
How shocking. You mean the program was run the way we already knew it was being run, with low paperwork and fast decisionmaking?

A Small Revision
We had written about Peter Hansen before, in the role of the U.N.. Hansen is the Gaza district chief for UNRWA. This is what he said in an interview with CBC television:

"Oh I am sure that there are Hamas members on the UNRWA payroll and I don't see that as a crime."

Apparently this was too much of an admission for Associated Press reporter Peter Enav. He paraphrased Hansen's words to something more innocent:

Hansen also acknowledged that Hamas sympathizer might be working for the agency. [emphasis added]

CAMERA caught it.

Anti-Semitism in Greece
I wanted to write some funny, smartass remark about this, but I'm too depressed. I waste time arguing with friends who don't think things are "that bad" while things are going from bad to worse. And at the end, there's nothing funny about hating Jews.
Over the past few months, two official reports have been released in Greece that document a worrying increase in the number of anti-Semitic attacks and a change for the worse in Greek society's attitude toward Israel and the tiny, 5,000-strong Jewish community. One of the reports was released last September by the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece, and the other, in late November, by Greek Helsinki Monitor (GHM), a non-governmental association that is affiliated with the International Helsinki Federation for Human Rights.
