NYT Spins John Kerry’s Iraq Troops “Joke”

The "Paper Of Treason," the New York Times does its best to spin their poster boy’s latest America-hating remarks:

Kerry and G.O.P. Spar Over Iraq Remarks

By DAVID STOUT
October 31, 2006

WASHINGTON, Oct. 31 — Debate over the Iraq war seemed to reach a new intensity today, with Republicans accusing Senator John Kerry of insulting rank-and-file American troops and Mr. Kerry, a Massachusetts Democrat, lashing back at some of his tormentors as “assorted right-wing nut jobs.”

The latest flap, over what Mr. Kerry said on the West Coast on Monday, was another example of the heated rhetoric surrounding the war issue as the Congressional elections approach. President Bush said Monday that a Democratic triumph in the races for the House and Senate would amount to a victory for terrorists.

Cops Arrest Osama Impersonator – Guess Party

From Portland Maine's TV station WCSH6:

Attorney Dressed As Osama Arrested In South Portland

10/31/2006

Attorney Tom Connolly was arrested by South Portland police Tuesday morning, after motorists reported a man with a gun near Interstate 295. It turns out the gun was part of a Halloween costume, but it looked real enough to passersby and police.

Connolly was dressed in an Osama Bin Laden costume and holding a fake gun and a sign that said "I love TABOR".

Officers raced to the scene and drew their weapons on Connolly. They say Connolly didn't immediately respond to their commands. He was taken into custody a few minutes later.

"The officers ordered him to drop the weapon and lay on the ground. He still walked toward the officers, dropping what appeared to be hand grenades onto the roadway.

Iran Offers $20 A Head For American Tourists

From Iran’s biggest fans at the DNC’s Associated Press:

Iran Offering Cash to Travel Agents for American Tourists

Tuesday, October 31, 2006

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran has said it would offer cash incentives to travel agencies to encourage Western tourists to visit the country, giving a premium for Americans, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported Tuesday.

The proposal is Iran’s latest bid to reach out to ordinary Americans in an attempt by the Islamic Republic’s political leadership to show that its quarrel is with the U.S. administration — not U.S. citizens.

It came as the United Nations Security Council deliberates a draft resolution that would impose sanctions on Iran for its disputed nuclear program.

"Iran’s tourism department will pay US$20 per person to those who attract European or American tourists to the country," the agency quoted Mohammed Sharif Malakzadeh, deputy head of the department, as saying.

Pervez Musharraf, Pakistan’s president, has said that the 80 people killed in a air raid on a religious school near the Afghan border were all undergoing military training.

"They were all militants using weapons doing military training within the compound."

Almost 10,000 Pakistanis attended protests held in Khar, the main town in the northwestern tribal Bajaur district, where military helicopters fired five missiles into an Islamic religious school, known as a madrasa, on Monday.

Iraq asks troops to stay as U.S. death toll spikes

Mon Oct 30, 2006

By Ibon Villelabeitia

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – The killings of two Americans took the monthly U.S. death toll in Iraq on Monday to over 100 for the first time in nearly two years, just a week before elections that could cost President George W. Bush's Republicans control of Congress.

Pressure has mounted ahead of the November 7 congressional poll to extract U.S. troops from the bloody turmoil afflicting Iraq since Bush ordered the invasion three and a half years ago.

Soros Helped The Nazis During Holocaust

Here is a partial transcript from an interview done by Steve Kroft for CBS' 60 Minutes George Soros on December 20, 1998:

George Soros Interview On 60 Minutes

When the Nazis occupied Budapest in 1944, George Soros' father was a successful lawyer. He lived on an island in the Danube and liked to commute to work in a rowboat. But knowing there were problems ahead for the Jews, he decided to split his family up. He bought them forged papers and he bribed a government official to take 14-year-old George Soros in and swear that he was his Christian godson. But survival carried a heavy price tag. While hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews were being shipped off to the death camps, George Soros accompanied his phony godfather on his appointed rounds, confiscating property from the Jews.

Soros Front Can’t Validate Anti-War Petition

From the Sun Herald:

Activists can’t validate soldiers’ names

Sat, Oct. 28, 2006

By DAVID GIALANELLA
SUN HERALD WASHINGTON BUREAU

WASHINGTON – A group claiming earlier this week to represent 65 "active-duty" troops opposed to the war in Iraq acknowledged Thursday it cannot validate the number or the authenticity of all the names it claims to have gathered.

The group attracted widespread media attention on Tuesday after it put out a statement claiming that "for the first time" since the war began, "active-duty members are asking" Congress to end the "occupation of Iraq."

The following day the group said the number of soldiers signing on had risen to 219. Organizers have thus far declined to provide a list of names.

"We’re trying to figure out a validation process," said David Cortright, an organizer of the Appeal for Redress movement and president of Indiana-based peace-activism group Fourth Freedom Forum.

Defense: Free Saddam Or Face Consequences

From France's AFP:

'Free Saddam or else…'

29/10/2006

Amman – Saddam Hussein's defence team has drafted a letter to US President George W Bush warning of dire consequences if an Iraqi court issues a verdict against the ousted Iraqi president for crimes against humanity.

In a copy of the letter received by AFP in Jordan on Sunday, lead Iraqi lawyer Khalil al-Dulaimi also urged Bush to set free Saddam and put an end to the trial which he described again as illegal and a farce.

"We believe that it is necessary to stop this farcical trial and set free President Saddam Hussein, and all the prisoners, because this is the only solution for your troops and your difficult position in Iraq," Dulaimi said.

"This is also the best way for the future of Iraq, the region and the world," he added.

Feminist Pol Protected After Muslim Threat

From the UK's Times:

Italy’s rebel woman MP fears fatwa

October 29, 2006
John Follain

The Italian feminist politician Daniela Santanche has been given 24-hour police protection after her strident views on the Muslim veil drew an apparent death sentence from an imam.

On a television chat show, Santanche, 45, an MP for the right-wing National Alliance party, clashed with Ali Abu Shwaima, the imam of a mosque near Milan.

“The veil isn’t a religious symbol and it isn’t prescribed by the Koran,” she said. “And in our country there is a law which forbids – for reasons of terrorism – people going around with masks on.”

Shwaima, an Italian national, retorted: “The veil is an obligation required by God. Those who do not believe that are not Muslims.

Gunman Kills Iraqi Women Rights Worker

From France’s AFP:

Iraqi women’s rights champion murdered

Sat Oct 28, 7:24 AM ET

KIRKUK, Iraq (AFP) – Gunmen broke into the house of an Iraqi women’s rights campaigner and shot her dead in front of her three children, police have said.

Human rights activists say the lives of women in Iraqi society have worsened dramatically since the US-led invasion of March 2003, amid a general break down in law and order and the rise of conservative Islamist militias.

Captain Imad Khudhir of the Kirkuk police said Saturday 38-year-old Halima Ahmed Hussein al-Juburi was killed late on Friday by 10 unidentified attackers who broke into her home in the northern town of Hawijah.

"We do not know the motive behind the crime," he said.

Newsweek: Unbiased Listing Of Iraq Books

An objective and unbiased selection of books on Iraq from the foreign policy experts at the DNC's in-house magazine Newsweek:

Sampling on Iraq

To explain the situation in Iraq requires writers ranging from soldiers to statesmen to scholars to reporters to a 24-year-old out-of-work computer programmer.

Local residents try to extinguish a fire in the center of Fallujah in the early morning of Oct. 12, 2004 following a U.S. airstrike. A U.S. warplane destroyed a popular restaurant that the U.S. command said was a meeting place for members of Iraq's most feared terrorist organization.

(Bilal Hussein, AP)

Oct. 27, 2006 – Just one of the frightening things about Iraq is how fast the publishing industry has responded with a ballooning shelf of books on the war and related subjects.

Harold Ford: Australia Seeks Nukes Just Iran

From Australia's News.Com:

Australia 'a nuclear threat'

By Geoff Elliott

Harold Ford, a handsome 36-year-old from Tennessee, has become one of the sensations of the mid-term elections in the US and a reason why Democrats are a good chance of winning back control of the US Congress for the first time in 12 years.

But if Mr Ford, already a US congressman, wins his bid to become a more powerful senator, Australia had better watch out.

Because according to Mr Ford, Australia has an interest in nuclear weapons and is part of the broader nuclear threat to the US.

In a speech to county government officials yesterday in Knoxville, Mr Ford – listed in People magazine in 2001 as one of the 50 most beautiful people in the world – electrified the audience, as he does everywhere he speaks.

“Penis Mouth” Webb: Dems Have Iraq Solution

The DNC’s Associated Press really lays it on for their masters in this preposterous article:

Webb: Democrats will provide Iraq remedy

By BOB LEWIS, Associated Press Writer Sat Oct 28

RICHMOND, Va. – The only remedy to a series of Iraq policy failures by President Bush is a Democratic takeover of Congress in the Nov. 7 election, Virginia Senate candidate Jim Webb said Saturday.

The former Republican, who was President Reagan’s Navy secretary, said in the Democrats’ weekly radio address that Bush’s "incompetence" in Iraq had undercut the fight against terrorism

"Since 2003, President Bush has laid out nine different plans for victory in Iraq, none of them serious and none of them workable. And most seriously, this incompetence has hindered our ability to fight international terror," Webb said…

"A Democratic Congress will demand from day one that the president find a real way forward in Iraq.

UK Muslim Cleric Defends Killing Homosexuals

From the UK's Manchester Evening News:

Two Iranians, ages 18 and 16, were executed for the "crime" of homosexuality on July 19, 2005.

Muslim cleric 'backs execution of gays'

Thursday, 26th October 2006

Don Frame

A row has blown up over a claim a prominent Manchester Muslim has defended the execution of sexually-active gay people as "justified".

Arshad Misbahi, a junior Imam at the city's Central Mosque is alleged to have confirmed that it is an acceptable punishment in Iraq and Iran.

His comments are said to have been made to psychotherapist Dr John Casson who is researching the persecution of gays in Islamic states. But they have been condemned as "encouraging conflict between the area's large gay and Muslim communities.

Dr Casson said: "He told me that in a true Islamic state, such punishments were part of Islam if the person had had a trial, at which four witnesses testified that they had seen the actual homosexual acts."

He went on: "I asked him what would be the British Muslim view and he repeated that in an Islamic state these punishments were justified.
