29-06-2003 15:05There seem to be some retractions due while a number of unanswered questions remain regarding an article recently posted (anonymously) on Melbourne Indymedia entitled “Blair Involved in Pedophile Ring blackmailed to support Iraq Attack.” It now seems probable that some of the allegations made in the article may stem from a smear campaign orchestrated by British secret services.
29-06-2003 14:30The Lord's Resistance Army is a Christian fundamentalist terror organization led by self-anointed "prophet" Joseph Kony that demands adoption of the Ten Commandments as the Constitution. Note that the western media carefully avoid using the words "terrorists" or "Christians", although Joseph Kony's "Lord's Resistance Army" is both. Also note the AP's euphemistic use of the term "concubine" for the little girls, some as young as 7, turned into sex slaves by the Christians.
If rather than being a Christian group named the "Lord's Resistance Army" demanding adoption of the Ten Commandments as the Constitution, it were instead a Muslim group named the "Ummah Resistance Army" demanding the implementation of Shari'a law, there can be no doubt that the western media would be howling about the outrages of an "Islamic fundamentalist terrorist" group.
29-06-2003 14:01The leader of the world's 70 million Anglicans has stood behind the appointment of an openly homosexual bishop, Cannon Jeffrey John. The Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams said he saw nothing wrong with the appointment of Jeffrey John, 50, as Bishop of Reading. But the appointment has caused dissatisfaction among members of the church. Among these include six bishops, led by Archbishop Peter Jensen.

29-06-2003 12:14Under international law, all Jewish settlements in the occupied territories are regarded as illegal. The funds for setting up a number of the illegal outposts have been channelled through a branch of the quasi-governmental Jewish Agency, the report by Israel Channel 2 said. "It is possible to build in the settlements, but people should not talk about it and dance around every time a building permit is given," the newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth quoted Sharon as saying. "They should build without talking."
29-06-2003 12:11Only yesterday Poodle stormtroopers had announced an "amnesty" for the courageous townspeople of Majar who independently successfully defeated, captured and executed Poodle stormtroopers who had persecuted them (see the second article, below).
Poodle propaganda flyers dropped by airplanes on the town read: "We will not return to punish anyone since these are the methods of Saddam's regime. We will return to set up good relations with you because of our concern about a secure Iraq."
Apparently the poodle stormtroopers have re-evaluated the methods of Saddam's regime and decided that they approve of them after all, for the latest article states that:
"MORE than 500 British troops marched defiantly back into a small Iraqi town yesterday to hunt down the gunmen who slaughtered six of their comrades just five days earlier ... Army spokesman Lt. Col. Ronnie McCourt said: "We are here today to gather whatever forensic evidence we can from the police station and the surrounding areas. We want to show people in Majar that we are still here in this area and the area is still governed by the rule of law. We will charge the men who carried out this crime with murder as soon as they have been apprehended."
