Saddam's Crimes
Saddam's trial will start Wednesday and his lawyer plans to seek a three-month adjournment to challenge the court's competence to hear the case. All I can say is a death sentence is indeed too merciful for him: Saddam Atrocities Go Beyond Formal Charges

An Addiction to Jewish Life
Vladimir Chaplin is to be commended for his work in preserving Odessa's 200-year-old Jewish history. Vladimir is not Jewish but he sees his city's Jewish history as part of his history too. I admire that and I admire his good intentions. However, I think if I was Jewish, I wouldn't be comfortable having a non-Jew being a spiritual leader in Hillel and leading weekly prayer services. Vladimir's work on Jewish history is important and wonderful but Judaism is not his religion. I'm glad he respects that. Non-Jew in Ukraine 'addicted' to Jewish life

It's not just France...Zarqawi also has a recruitment network operating in the UK
Al-Qaeda chief sets up UK network
THE head of Al-Qaeda in Iraq has established a new terror network in Britain which is recruiting young Muslim fanatics to fight coalition troops.

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has recently set up the group to recruit and train would-be suicide bombers and gunmen, counter-terrorism officials have said.

The new group, Ansar al-Fath — Partisans of Victory — is an offshoot of Ansar al-Islam, an organisation that is to be banned under new anti-terror rules announced by Charles Clarke, the home secretary, last week.

Ansar al-Fath provides logistical support to foreign fighters in Iraq and uses the internet to find new recruits for Zarqawi.

Government officials say a “steady trickle" of about 70 young Muslim men have travelled to Iraq from Britain in the past two years.

They warn that some newly trained “professional jihadists" have returned here and may be planning attacks.

Breaking News: Karl Rove Has A Green Ladder
Karl Rove's Garage Proves to Be Typical. A thimbleful of cognac to RIP Ford for the scoop.
He is "the architect" who steered George W. Bush to victory four times, twice as Texas governor and twice as president.

But can Karl Rove organize his own garage? Can the master of Bush's political planning figure out where to put the ladders, paint cans and cardboard boxes?

Rove's wife, Darby, raised the white garage door one morning last week to show journalists outside the million-dollar brick home that the deputy chief of staff, assistant to the president and senior adviser wasn't home. All the interest came on the eve of his testimony Friday before a grand jury investigating who in the White House might have revealed the identity of a CIA operative.

There was no car in the garage. And the stuff left behind turned out not to be much different from what gathers dust inside most American garages.

The inventory, seen from outside:

_Some cardboard file boxes stacked one on top of the other, labeled "Box 6," "Box 4" and what appears to be "Box 7." No sign of boxes 1, 2, 3 and 5.

_What appear to be paint cans stacked alongside a folded, folding chair.

_A rather large wood crate marked "FRAGILE" and painted with arrows indicating which way is up. On top of the crate, two coolers.

_A tall aluminum ladder.

_A snow shovel leaned in front of another cardboard box.

_Wicker baskets inside of wicker baskets on top of a shelf running the length of the rear wall. Transparent plastic storage bins crammed with indiscernible stuff. Another cardboard box.

_In one corner, the rear wheel of a bicycle sticks out, along with what appears to be a helmet.

_Another ladder, this one green, leaning sideways.
I have to admit though, the large wood crate seems very suspicious to me. Could it be that Rove is hiding Osama in there and is waiting to bring him out right before the next presidential elections?

Demolishing the lie that is Che
Ten Shots at Che Guevara: Newsroom: The Independent Institute
Che Guevara fans are preparing to commemorate one more anniversary of the revolutionary’s death, which took place thirty-eight years ago at the Yuro ravine in Bolivia. It’s an appropriate time to address ten myths that keep Guevara’s cult alive.

The last time I visited the Museum of Modern Art in New York, an American student wearing a Che Guevara T-Shirt and a beret caught my eye (the fact that Nicole Kidman happened to walk in at that very moment may have had something to do with my noticing him). I asked him politely what exactly he admired so much about that man. Here are the ten reasons he mentioned—and my response.
Read it all. Not that most of you probably don't already know this. Weren't there not not enough double negatives in the previous sentence?

Moderate Muslims: caught between useful idiots and just plain idiots
Salim Mansur writes on "Islam's worst enemies":
On the eve of Ramadan, the holiest month in the Islamic calendar, Muslim terrorists belonging to Indonesia's Jemaah Islamiah conducted suicide bombings on the island of Bali.

Then, on the first day of Ramadan, a Sunni Muslim suicide bomber attacked a Shiite mosque in the Iraqi town of Hilla. Among worshippers gathered for prayers, 25 died and nearly 100 were wounded. Ramadan has seen an escalation of suicide bombings in Iraq prior to today's vote on the country's new constitution.

Following the Bali bombing, U.S. President George Bush delivered a major speech in Washington to the membership of the National Endowment for Democracy. He expressed most clearly and specifically -- for the first time on record -- who and what is the enemy the U.S. and its allies are fighting in the war on terror.

"Some call this Islamic radicalism; others, militant jihadism; still others Islamo-fascism," Bush said. "Whatever it's called, this ideology is very different from the religion of Islam. This form of radicalism exploits Islam to serve a violent, political vision: The establishment, by terrorism and subversion and insurgency, of a totalitarian empire that denies all political and religious freedom."

With these remarks, Bush clarified what many of us Muslims know by our experience and the history of our faith tradition -- that is, how greatly Muslims themselves have been terrorized through centuries by the same people who are now waging their indiscriminate war against those who refuse to accept their violently bigoted perversion of Islam.

Osama bin Laden is today the public face of this murderous ideology, whose first victims were members of the prophet Muhammad's immediate family. The worldview of these murderers -- irrespective of how they strive to link their acts to Islam -- is starkly primitive. Their world consists of nominal Muslims, to be ruled by them as Taliban chief Mullah Omar ruled Afghanistan, and infidels against whom they must wage an endless war.

In Bali the infidels are Hindus; in Iraq the infidels are Shiites and misguided Kurds; for Palestinians, the infidels are Jews. Americans, Europeans, Russians, Chinese, and Hindu Indians are all infidels who are present inside, or inhabit the bordering lands of Muslims, particularly the Middle East. As enemies of radical Islamists, they are to be terrorized indiscriminately, as was the objective of the London bombers this past July, with the aim that they will be compelled to withdraw from lands considered Islamic.

The internal war within the Muslim world, which is as old as Islam itself, went savagely global in the final decades of the last century. On 9/11 this internal conflict among Muslims erupted inside the United States, awakening America to the international menace of radical Islam in much the same way as Japanese militarism did 60 years earlier at Pearl Harbor.

But there are legions of Americans and Europeans, with supporters elsewhere in other continents, who are wilfully blind and deaf to the reality of radical Islam that Bush has sought to make plain in his public remarks.

They continue to insist that the violence of Muslim terrorists, despite being despicable, must yet be explained by reference to some "root causes" linked with the history of Western colonial imperialism.

Hence, these "useful idiots" (in Lenin's memorable phrase) give pause to the vast majority of Muslims -- in particular those in North America and Europe -- whose silence in the face of evil feeds the bloodlust of Muslim terrorists.

Bush is right when he says the "murderous ideology of the Islamic radicals is the great challenge of our new century." It can only be met successfully, however, if we have learned sufficiently from 20th-century history.
I hope he's right about that "vast majority"...a thimbleful of cognac to cba!

Fm[1].gif~A celebration of the Rose~
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other word would smell as sweet."

I the roses love in the gardens of Adonis,
Lydia, I love those fast fleeting roses
That on the day they were born,
On the same day they die.
Light for them is everlasting: born
After the sun comes up, they die
Before Apollo rounds
His visible track.
So let us make our life a single day,
And willingly ignore the night to come,
The night already past,
The little while we last.

My Victorian drawing room would have this lamp shade in a cozy corner...

and this intricate beaded rose purse left carelessly on a tabourette.

According to fossil evidence, the rose is 35 million years old! Roses are symbols of love, war, beauty and politics. In ancient Rome they were used for medicinal purposes, as confetti and perfume.
