Not Good Signs
Radical Islam is spreading. Grassfires are springing up in unexpected places. Who has the buckets and who has the matches?

Jihad and the Vatican
First, the Vatican equated anti-zionism with anti-semitism. Now, the Vatican is beginning to voice what most Western countries are still in denial about. Good for the Catholic church. A clash of civilisations is happening and I'd rather have the Pope on my side.

Fallujah's Marlboro Man

This Kentucky boy can share my Marlboros anytime. Bullets are flying around him and he's down to four packs.

Terror Groups Threaten Iraqis: All Iraq Will Be Fallujah
Reuters reports that 11 terrorist groups you can buy on eBay have issued a joint videotaped threat message from Fallujah to all Iraqis, especially the ones with jobs, because they hate that. Jobs, like, totally suck.

Finally, A Purge, And Iraqification Of Recruit Screening
You'd think Iraqis would be the best people to decide who is trustworthy and who isn't. Being Iraqis themselves, and all. We're finally returning that responsibility to them, after bungling the job completely by trying to hire people the way we do in America.

Comical Palestinian Succession Struggle
Mahmoud Abbas' motorcade arrived at a Gaza City mourning tent so he could drink tiny little cups of Turkish coffee (basically sludge) and smoke endless Marlboro cigarettes from a circulating tray, sitting in a circle on cheap plastic folding chairs and looking somber while pretending to mourn Arafat.

Twenty guys dressed in green thought it would be lots more fun to fire guns in the air while yelling "Abbas and Dahlan are agents for the Americans!"

I don't blame them, Arabs are pretty boring mourners. Abbas' bodyguards' response? "Oh yeah? You're shooting the sky? We'll shoot at it too! Yee haw!"

Eventually the 20 green guys decided it would also be jolly fun to rush the mourning tent and shoot bullets sideways for a change instead of up and down, and for some reason this made everyone freak out and trip over the cheap plastic folding chairs trying to run away.

Abbas' bodyguards hustled him into the corner of the tent, on the advanced security theory that people cowering in tent corners are invisible and bulletproof.

Traditionally formidable Arab marksmanship skills were in evidence as 20 men dressed in green, shouting slogans and firing guns, managed to shoot all of 6 people, one fatally (although they shot the living hell out of the sky, which won't dare look at them funny like that again).

Abbas was driven back to the safety of Palestinian headquarters (the so-called Rubble House).

guest author: Colt in Discarded Lies:
Farouq Kaddoumi
As you lot have shown so much interest in the coming Palestinian civil war, I thought I'd re-post my profile of one of the key players here:

Farouk Kaddoumi is not a well-known man. He left the Ba’ath party to join Fatah, eventually becoming a bureaucrat in the P.L.O. It was he who worked to get the Europeans and Americans to recognise the P.L.O. as the sole representative of the Balestinian Beoble. Today, he is the Chairman of Fatah. To be chosen as leader, he must have the support of some or many powerful figures, members of Fatah or not.

He broke with Arafat over the Oslo Accords. When Arafat and most of the P.L.O. travelled to Gaza from Tunis, Kaddoumi remained, denouncing the peace agreements as a crime. Since then, he has been rather less diplomatic than in previous years. In April, for instance, he gave an interview with the Jordanian al-Arab newspaper. He told them that the P.L.O. charter had not been altered at all, implying that the destruction of Israel was still their aim. He also said that the Gaza strip would become a base from which to ‘liberate’ the rest of Israel. Kaddoumi even backed terrorists in Iraq, giving special praise to the group that named itself for Ahmed Yassin.

A Saint Who Walked Among Us, A Marine, An American
We can't all be Joshua. But the least we owe him is to know him.
Hugh Hewitt has this incredible story. I wept for Joshua Palmer, and for my people, America, and for Laura, his girlfriend, for losing the precious soul that is Joshua.
Hugh, because it is the Marine Corps birthday today, and because I heard that you are broadcasting live from USD, I wanted to let you know that USD lost one of its alumni on April 8th of this year, in Fallujah. His name was 1st Lt. Joshua Palmer. It would be great if you could somehow remind the students that they've lost one of their own over there, especially today, and especially before veterans day. Josh loved USD. He graduated just a year before going to Iraq, and still has a lot of friends on campus. In fact, he was president of the College Republicans there. Thanks,

Josh's girlfriend, Laura

Chinese Petro-Imperialism in Africa
In Out of Beijing [bugmenot], Stéphanie Giry explores China's petro-imperialism in Africa and the repercussions and ramifications for American policy in the region (which are grave).
the Bush administration is getting more blame for Darfur than it deserves--and Beijing is not getting enough. Quietly but steadfastly, China's ambassador to the United Nations, Wang Guangya, has helped defang U.S.-sponsored drafts against Sudan, transforming language threatening to "take further action" against Khartoum into the more benign "consider taking additional measures." China then abstained from voting on even this weakened resolution, along with longtime ally Pakistan.

Beijing's goal?
Extended quotes if you follow that jump.
