The problem with revenge is that it lowers the humanity of those who exercise it down to the same level, of even below, those who committed the original crime. Although we can't yet know who was responsible for 911 or 1012, we do now know that forces of the Coalition of the Willing (CoW) have, on occasions, been just as barbaric as the people who killed on those dates. This has been amply demonstrated in Afghanistan and again in Iraq. If you doubt this, seek out more facts about the CoW's use of DU and NDU weaponry and cluster bombs. These horror weapons continue, to this day, to put young children and adult civilians at risk of injury or death from unexploded munitions, radiation, and toxic substances in the ground water and the food chain.
11-03-2006 05:33The land of International penny stock fraud makes for strange bedfellows and here often right wing cons of all stripes lie together.So it should come as no surprise that by touting or allowing his name to be used to tout a Michael Zwebner pump and dump penny stock scam(one of many over the years) President of Israel Moshe Katzav not only mixes his name and reputation with American mafia and international crooks and gangsters but also Mr.Zwebner's business partner in a number of scams over the years including UCSY or Universal Communications Systems is the infamous Mohamed Hadid,a Palestinian of ill repute connected to the Herndon,Virginia Muslim charity suspected in both money laundering and terrorist funding activities,including Al Qaeda.

Ukrainian authorities arrested them and handed them over to Uzbekistan's government infamous for its use of tortures and death penalty. It's the latest, but not a unique, case of such a deportation. Ukrainian activists ask comrades from other countries for help.
11-03-2006 02:21The Green Party manifesto is unworkable, misconceived, authoritarian and would punish the poor it has been claimed today. Following extensive reading of their policies (link below) it seems that the whole affair has been put together by someone with a Green magic wand, which seems to have limitless amounts of cash and a misguided belief in the inherent ‘goodness’ (in their terms) of the average citizen.

10-03-2006 21:36Our friends from abroad continuously ask us to explain our views about the current situation in Venezuela.

10-03-2006 20:15The UK House of Commons hybrid draft piece of legislation, the Crossrail Bill, is being ‘scrutinised’ by a small group of MPs, collected from mainly the three ‘major’ Political Parties. The process has been overstated in its relevant capacity to alter the substantive contents of any Bill. Given that the Crossrail Bill contains monumental powers that will enable the destruction of entire communities in the East End of London, the ability – or the chances - of the MPs committee on the Crossrail Bill to make any difference must be examined against the performance of another committee which in October 2002 ‘heard evidence’ from one Michael Keith, a councillor on the East End Borough of Tower Hamlets Council. The same Michael Keith is now leader of the same council and is widely associated with the promotion of the Crossrail Bill and plan as a whole. Keith is set to be among Tower Hamlets Councillors who would enjoy the chance to appear before the Crossrail committee to make the case for the Council’s defiance of the local community. The MPs need to be much more alert and vigilant this time round then their counterparts were on Tuesday 15 October 2002.

10-03-2006 17:37After months of so-called "consultation events", Leeds City Council has taken the somewhat surprising step of releasing the results as if they were a "ballot" of Little London tenants. As expected, they have managed to con enough people to support their gentrification plans.
