The Impact
From the Messopotamian:
Now, do we have a right, as Iraqis to express our opinion about the U.S. elections, which are of course an entirely internal affair for the American people? Or are they?

It seems to me, that since this matter is going to have a direct impact on our lives and very existence and since the U.S. government and people have seen fit to intervene and initiate this profound revolution in our country; it would not be extravagant nor incorrect for us even to demand to take part in those elections, rhetorically speaking of course.
Read the rest, this election matters a lot more to the Iraqi people than it does to the editors of the Guardian: The American Elections

Coming Attractions: Mass Casualty Terrorism At Hospitals?
Ominous news. In two small towns in Northern Illinois, two middle-eastern men were behaving very suspiciously, apparently gathering information on the level of security at rural hospitals. It's probably happened in other places as well, with less-wary hospital employees to blame for the lack of news about it...from the Journal-Gazette & Times-Courier online:
Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center and other Illinois hospitals were warned recently about the possibility of fake doctors trying to use their facilities.

Patty Peterson, spokeswoman for SBLHC, said the hospital was notified of the incidents last month and took the necessary precautions.

"We were aware that this person was doing it at other hospitals," Peterson said. "Our staff was on the alert for it."

SBLHC requires doctors there to wear name tags, and the size of the facility means there's a small enough number of people at the hospital for most people to recognize one another, she added.
Also according to Robbins, the hospital's security department also got news about two incidents in northern Illinois last month where two men entered hospitals under suspicious circumstances.

At a hospital in Sandwich, Ill., two men entered a hospital, claimed to be visiting doctors and asked several questions about the facility before leaving when staff there confronted them. At a hospital in Peru, Ill., two men entered and said they wanted to buy a wheelchair then left abruptly when told management would be contacted. In both instances, the two men were described as being of Middle Eastern descent.
Our defenses are being probed.

Stolen Honor On Dish Network And Over The Airwaves!
This via the FakeWarriors newsletter and NewsMax:
NewsMax.com has broken the media's censorship of the controversial documentary "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal and has begun airing the film on national television.

Beginning Saturday morning, NewsMax began airing the documentary directed by award-winning journalist Carlton Sherwood on national networks and in local networks across the nation.

Sherwood's account of John Kerry's activities as a leader of the Vietnam anti-war movement has infuriated the Kerry campaign.

"Very simply, the press has accepted everything John Kerry has said for the past 33 years, Sherwood said, explaing the media's reluctance to air his film or offer the public a detailed account of its charges. "They have never challenged him. They never challenged him in '71. They are afraid to do so now because they might discover that over three decades they were wrong about him and his war allegations."

"Stolen Honor" aired on PAX-TV twice Saturday. PAX-TV, one of the nation's largest TV networks, reaches approximately 90 million homes.

The documentary will air 10 times on PAX alone during this weekend, including showings on Sunday at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. EST/PST.

In addition to national networks like PAX, NewsMax will be airing `Stolen Honor' this weekend on numerous local stations across the nation, including ABC, CBS and NBC affiliates.
NewsMax.com's decision to air the censored program was based on the film's newsworthiness. After a flurry of controversy earlier this month, Sinclair Broadcasting aired only four minutes of the 43-minute documentary.

In a statement, NewsMax explained its action by noting that it was "critically important for the American people to hear the accounts of 17 American POWs and their claim that John Kerry and his anti-war activities betrayed them and the country."

Also, EchoStar Communications, which operates the DISH satellite network, announced that on Monday, Nov. 1, it will offer Carlton Sherwood's documentary available on a pay-per-view basis.

DISH said "Stolen Honor" will be available to more than 10 million customers for $9.95 on channel 457 at 8 p.m. Eastern time and channel 455 at 8 p.m. Pacific time.
"We are pleased to provide our customers a variety of political films and documentaries so they can make informed choices," said Susan Arnold, vice president of programming at EchoStar's DISH Network.

Grrl Power
MEMRI has excerpts from an article by Israeli Arab author and poet Salman Masalha, who argues that women are the only hope for modernising the Arab world.
If we glance at the world around us, we see that the developed peoples are those whose women have high status in society. This status did not did not emerge out of thin air, but rather has developed and grown in the past centuries against a certain economic, cultural, and religious backdrop which facilitated the advancement of women and their rise to an active and organic role in these societies. In contrast, it appears that in Arab societies women have not yet overcome the nomadic tribal [social] order that is the founding principle of Arab societies…

"There is no escape from viewing the Arabs today as being similar to the nomadic Arabs of the past - even if they travel by airplane, drive cars, and surf the Internet. Even if they were born and raised in Western countries, their notions have not changed. We often hear of so-called 'honor' crimes among the people of the [Arab] diasporas in Scandinavia, Britain, France, and other countries. These crimes, that traverse seas and continents, take place because Arab societies developed within a patriarchal mentality at their primitive, animal stage. And if these things occur in Europe, then they clearly occur with greater frequency in the Arab world.

Relative Deterrence
While we complain about the Patriot Act, let's keep things in perspective:
Russia’s Prosecutor General Vladimir Ustinov has proposed taking hostages as a possible measure to fight terrorism.

Detaining terrorists’ relatives during a terror attack would certainly help us save people,? Ustinov told the State Duma, speaking at a conference of law enforcement officials and law makers on the war on terror, the Russian Information Agency Novosti reported.

Actually they can take my relatives, I don't mind.

An Israeli Hacker Found Vulnerability In Gmail Accounts
Nana reports that a security hole in GMail has been found (an XSS vulnerability) which allows access to user accounts without authentication. The article reveals that the basic design of the bug is to snatch the victim's cookie, and then the hacker can use that cookie to get into the account forever more. That cookie will always lead to the victim's account no matter what... even if they log out, even if they change their password, the cookie will still be valid authentication. The XSS part is just an example of a way to steal the user's cookie. Clearly, any other way you can think of to grab a cookie file would work just as well.

It's a surprisingly bad design by Google standards. By assigning a forever-good cookie value to each users account, it eliminates the need to re-login at home after using GMail at a public terminal, but the problem is if that cookie value ever falls into enemy hands the account is compromised and cannot be re-secured. Re-assigning the cookie value at each logon is the more traditional way of securing such things, although that means users who hop between more than one computer or even browser would have re-authenticate every time they changed.

The full details of the exploit haven't been disclosed. Nana was tipped off by an Israeli hacker. Google has been notified and they are working to close the hole. The Register has also a story here.

The Gaza Test
Mortimer Zuckerman writes about Gaza:
What is the matter with these terrorists? Every time an Israeli concession is made, they respond with more indiscriminate maiming and killing. Which, in turn, forces Israeli peaceniks to the right. Why is it that when an Israeli prime minister, at great political cost, decides to turn over control of Gaza, the Palestinians go on another rampage in the very areas destined for evacuation?

The reasons are simple: Yasser Arafat and Hamas. Arafat, because he never cooperates unless it is clear all decisions are his; Hamas, because, like other die-hard rejectionists, its members simply don't accept the existence of a Jewish state anywhere in the region.

Gaza is thus a critical challenge for the Palestinians. Can they break free from a corrupt, law-breaking regime and accomplish what has not been accomplished since the peace accords negotiated in Oslo a decade ago? Whether the Palestinians can meet the challenge will be determined by success or failure in six key areas:

1. Palestinian security forces must be placed under central control with an international monitoring presence to prevent their becoming a terrorist base.

2. The Arab countries, with Egypt in the lead, must persuade radical groups, especially Hamas, to abjure violence.

3. The European Union and the world--especially the Arab oil countries--must organize investment sufficient to sustain Gaza's economy--and supervise it so that money is not siphoned off by graft or to radical groups like Hamas.

4. Both the Arab and the European communities must emphasize that if Israel is not afforded an orderly withdrawal or a peaceful neighbor that doesn't resort to rocket or mortar launchings against Israeli towns--forcing an Israeli return to Gaza--all aid will be cut off.
A momentous moment

No offense, Mr. Zuckerman, but I think you're dreaming.

After Arafat
After the first 24 hours of celebrations in the civilized world at the death of the most foul creature to infest humanity since Hitler, there will be big problems. The Arabs will blame Israel and the Jews for Yasser Arafat's demise. They will say something to the effect that if it weren't for his isolation in Ramallah, he would still be alive and killing. They will blame his lack of living in obscene luxury and with a nice scenic view for his 'premature' departing.

Then the killings and chaos will start.
