German Neo-Nazis
The official Neo-Nazi death toll in Germany since 1990 is 41. The unofficial is 99.
Right-wing extremists have killed 41 people in Germany since the country's 1990 reunification, according to an official quoted in a report to be published Friday.

The number of neo-Nazi victims has been raised by five after several recent killings were deemed to have had a rightist motive, said the Tagesspiegel newspaper quoting a spokeswoman from the Federal Crime Bureau (BKA).

In the latest confirmed killing, a skinhead stabbed a leftist to death in a Dortmund subway last March, said the report.

Independent research by the Tagesspiegel and the Frankfurter Rundschau newspaper arrive at a far higher death toll.

Alone for the period 1990 to 2003 the papers say that 99 people were killed by neo-Nazis in Germany.

The difference between the official figure and that reached by the newspapers is partly due to the BKA's demand for convictions or court evidence of rightist motives before adding victims to the list.

Jews assassinate Czar, aid Hitler and drink the blood of a Christian child: Just another Ramadan in Jordan
For Ramadan 2005, the new Jordanian TV channel Al-Mamnou' is airing the Syrian-produced TV series Al-Shatat ( "Diaspora" ). [1] The series, which was first aired on Hizbullah's Al-Manar TV during Ramadan 2003, purports to tell the story of Zionism from 1812 up to the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, and, like the Egyptian series Knight Without a Horse [2] that was aired during Ramadan 2002, depicts a "global Jewish government" that is described in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. It also depicts the notorious blood libel - Jews slaughtering a Christian child to use his blood for Passover matzos. Al-Shatat was also aired by two Iranian channels during Ramadan 2004.

The following are clips of nine scenes from the series, along with the transcripts:

A cartoon interlude

pbagge_generic_header.gif



I was going through a box of old college papers and lab notebooks when I found a manila folder containing four photocopied pages from a book by cartoonist Peter Bagge. After a minute's thought, I remembered -- the book had belonged to my friend Tyler, the first straight guy I'd ever French-kissed. (He was drunk and basically dared himself to do it, at a party.) Tyler had an extensive collection of books by cartoonists in the R. Crumb tradition, and while Bagge's stuff was too angst-y and undergroundish for my Betty and Veronica taste, this particular four-page piece by Bagge enjoyed a certain cult status in our circle, and even I could quote it by heart. The title of the piece was "Generic Comics," and the premise was to distill various joke genres down to their most primitive, "generic" essence...

'Never mind her, it's all women's talk.'
Saudi Author: "Imagine You're a Woman"
"Imagine you're a woman. You always need your guardian's approval, not only regarding your first marriage, as maintained by the Islamic legal scholars, but regarding each and every matter. You cannot study without your guardian's approval, even if you reach a doctorate level. You cannot get a job and earn a living without your guardian's approval. Moreover, there are people who are not ashamed to say that a woman must have permission to work even in the private sector.

"Imagine you're a woman, and the guardian who must accompany you wherever [you go] is your 15-year-old son or your brother, who scratches his chin before giving his approval, saying: 'What do you think, guys, should I give her my permission?' Sometimes he asks for... a bribe [in return], heaven forbid! [But] your brother avoids taking such a bribe in 'cash' because his self-respect prevents him from touching a woman's money. So he prefers the bribe to be a car, a fridge, or an assurance of money that you will pay in installments [for him], until Allah gets him out of his financial straits...

"Imagine you're a woman, and you are subject to assault, beatings, or murder. When the press publishes your photo [together with] the photo of the criminals and [descriptions] of their brutality, there are people who ask: 'Was the victim covered [by a veil] or not?' If she was covered up, [the question arises:] 'Who let her go out of the house at such an hour?' In the event that your husband is the one who broke your ribs, [people will say] that no doubt there was good reason for it.

"Imagine you're a woman whose husband breaks her nose, arm, or leg, and you go to the Qadi to lodge a complaint. When the Qadi asks you about your complaint, and you say, 'He beat me,' he responds reproachfully 'That's all?!' In other words, [for the Qadi], beating is a technical situation that exists among all couples and lovers, [as the saying goes]: 'Beating the beloved is like eating raisins.'

Avian flu traced back to 1959 Scottish chicken
Scientists discover deadly bird flu began in Scotland
Key points
• The first record of the H5N1 virus has been traced to an Aberdeen farm
• The avian flu has been tracked back to a Scottish chicken in 1959
• The virus has become deadlier over the past 46 years

THE strain of avian flu which has so far swept from South Korea to Russia made its world debut in 1959 inside a Scottish chicken, it has emerged.
Scientists tracing the history of the H5N1 virus have traced its first recorded episode to an Aberdeen farm. The dead bird was taken to Surrey for medical examination, after infecting two flocks of chickens.

(...)

Flu strains are named after the various H and N protein codes recognised by the immune system. No H5 flu had ever spread to humans before 1997, when Hong Kong reported six casualties.

The 1959 Scottish H5N1 was - like all its successors - incapable of moving from species to species. But this changed last year, when the South Korean version showed itself capable of infecting pigs, rodents and humans.

Scientists have been most alarmed at the fast rate of H5N1's mutation. For the first time, the virus can survive in chicken faeces and in dead meat, without requiring the flow of fresh blood. This has made it stealthier, claiming victims who had no obvious connection with the agricultural industry.

But its low human death toll suggests that the disease has yet to pass from human to human.
Fascinating stuff.

Syria rejects Kanaan family's autopsy request
Anyone still think he really committed suicide?
Damascus, 21 Oct. (AKI) - The Syrian authorities are reported to have rejected a request by the family of the late interior minsiter Ghazi Kanaan, to carry out autopsy on his body. Kanaan died last week from gunwounds to the head and a very swift Syrian probe gave a suicide verdict. The Arab newspaper al-Quds al-Arabi reports that the Syrian refusal to allow tests to be carried out on Kanaan's body came after rumours that the UN commission, investigating the death of Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri, also wanted tests carried out on Kanaan's body.

Kanaan was heard as a witness by the UN commission, led by Detlev Mehlis, whose report was made public on Friday. The report says the many leads point to the direct involvement of Syrian officials and investigators have found evidence of Lebanese collusion in the Hariri carbomb killing.

The paper said Kanaan's family were irritated by the stance of the Syrian security services, and continue to reject firmly the hypothesis that their relative had committed suicide.
