US - Record industry says copying CDs to computer illegal

I think Apple, which sells millions of IPods, will have something to say about this.

UK - BBC's Simpson gazes into 2008

and can't see past the end of his anti American nose. What a laughing stock this windbag has become and an embarrassment to Britain. Listen to Simpson's anti American rant. Speaking of his 2007 predictions, Simpson begins..

"Even so, I got a couple of things badly wrong.

I didn't expect that the US commander in Iraq, General David Petraeus, for all his sharp intelligence, would make the so-called surge of American troops in Iraq look quite so successful.

True, it has only brought the level of killings and explosions down to that of two or three years ago, and it's likely to make the eventual civil war in Iraq fiercer than ever.

But it's a success, even so.

Suppose someone of Gen Petraeus's abilities had been in charge earlier?

Yet it scarcely matters now, except for Gen Petraeus's possible political future.
"

In addition to the almost 90% drop in violence, Simpleton, oops, Simpson fails to mention that al Qaeda has been dealt a humiliating defeat. No mention either that oil exports and electricity are above prewar levels or that the dinar is at record levels and the Iraqi economy is growing fast. Simpleton rants on.

"American public opinion has dismissed the Iraq war as a failure, and has moved on"


Really? The BBC and Simpson are no strangers to fiction when it comes to reporting on Iraq. In fact, the BBC's own Iraq defense correspondent, Paul Adams, complained over the BBC's lies in its Iraq reporting. Most of the left wing media invented anti American stories over Iraq.

This investigation seems to refute, surprise surprise, Simpson.

"As the year went on, the narrative from Iraq brightened in some ways. The drumbeat of reports about daily attacks declined in late summer and fall, and with that came a decline in the amount of coverage from Iraq overall.

This shift in coverage beginning in June, in turn, coincided with a rising sense among the American public that military efforts in Iraq were going "very" or "fairly well."


In other words, sensing an American success in Iraq the left wing media moved on, not the American public. The BBC used to do a weekly update of the death toll in Iraq - until the surge began to succeed and the BBC promptly dropped the charts.

Just imagine how much support there would be for Iraq if the left wing media told the world the truth.

Simpson lets not only his hate for America show, but his love of dictators and tyrants as well. Simpson once called Iran a democracy and now has this to say:

"We often forget that it is one of the few countries in the region which can genuinely change its government through the ballot box. "


As if elections in Iran are free and open. Simpson hopes you won't notice that one country after 35 years of a brutal dictator and thanks to Britain and America, can and has had free and open elections - Iraq.

I love Simpson's take on Zimbabwe.

"The US ambassador in Zimbabwe forecast economic meltdown there by the end of this year. It hasn't happened. "


Well John, that's interesting since the BBC itself made that same prediction - back in 2000. The BBC's headline for that report reads: "Zimbabwe: Economic melt-down" Do tell. Since the BBC's dire prediction in 2000, how are things in Zimbabwe now?

This sounds pretty much like a collapse to me.

If Simpson would take his head out of his ass for a minute and read what his own BBC are reporting on Zimbabwe's economy, he might learn something.

"Banks in Zimbabwe failed to open on Christmas Day, despite earlier pledges from the central bank governor.

Instead, long lines of Zimbabweans desperate for local currency queued at the few machines dispensing cash.

On top of rampant inflation, mass unemployment and shortages of fuel and basic goods the country is now suffering shortages of bank notes." ...

Zimbabwe has the highest level of inflation in the world at more than 8,000%."


You shouldn't be surprised by all of this as the BBC has a track record of anti Americanism, far left propaganda and support of Islamists. As for Simpson's predictions, he makes the same far left wing predictions every year.

What a buffoon.

US - Harper’s Credibility Issues Return

Interesting how these stories almost always revolve around the left wing media.

UK - "the BBC is failing in its public duty"

That's saying something coming from a Labor minister.

The BBC isn't just failing in it's duty, the BBC is the enemy.

Suicide bomber kills 50 in Pakistan mosque

One wonders how many Korans were burned in the blast.

Once again we have Muslims slaughtering Muslims and Muslims desecrating Korans. Where's the Islamic outrage over this? If a Christian kills a Muslim or is even accused of touching a Koran, billions of Muslims around the world go on a murderous rampage. Remember this next time you hear a Muslim complain about Koran desecration.

Iraq - Harry Reid does a u turn on Iraq

Back in April when he and the Democrats led the campaign to retreat in Iraq, Reid said the surge wasn't working and the war was lost.

"... that this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq,” Mr. Reid said."


With violence down by almost 90%, Reid won't admit the surge is working but admits it has helped.

"...the surge certainly hasn't hurt. It's helped. I recognize that."


What a putz. If anyone had listened to the Democrats, al Qaeda would have won a great victory, the violence in Iraq would still be killing thousands a month and freedom for millions of Iraqis would have been lost. Worse, just as the Democrats did in Vietnam, they would have caused genocide that would have killed millions.

Islam - The spirit of Eid Al-Adha

is death.

Around the world Muslims cry that they are the victims of Western "crusaders" bent on destryoing Muslims. The reality is Muslims kill far more Muslims than all the westerners combined.

It would seem some Islamic leaders have had enough and are now turning on al Qaeda at least.

Iraq - Good news round up

Electricity reached a pre war high.

Oil reaches a pre war high.

Violence lowest since 2004.

All of which makes Iraq the good news story of the year.

Which is why the anti war crowd are trying to join the winning side now.

It also helps explain why 22 Democrats just voted for funding the war.

There is a tremendous amount of work still to do but it appears Iraq is on the road to success.

Even the rabid left wing Guardian is forced to acknowledge the elephant in the room.

"Major General Joseph Fil, the outgoing US commander for Baghdad, said this week that the number of attacks in the capital had fallen almost 80% since November 2006, while murders in Baghdad province were down by 90% over the same time period, and vehicle-borne bombs had declined by 70%."

Hillary Clinton - "Talking-Point Dispensing Robot"

That's what the Huffington Post calls her!

First her husband says it would be a miracle if she wins and now the far left Huff and Puff calls her this.

Great stuff!

Iraq - Now that Iraq is a success

Anti war critics want to change to the winning side.

Islam's war on the West begins in school

Here's another example.

"[T]he Jews and the Christians" are described as "the enemies of Allaah's religion." The document adds: "Remember that you will never succeed while you follow these people."

Sounds like hate speech to me.

US - Ex-CAIR Member Takes on Free Speech

Exposing radical Islam in America.

Islamists are progressively making slaves out of us

with the help of the left.

Mark Steyn responds.

"That's how nations die — not by war or conquest, but by a thousand trivial concessions, until one day you wake up and you don't need to sign a formal instrument of surrender because you did it piecemeal."

US - "Muslim" issue resurfaces for Obama

Why is it an issue? The Democrats seem to be attempting to portray Obama as a Muslim as if that were a bad thing. Why aren't CAIR and other Muslim groups up in arms over the Democrats attempts to demean Islam? Why isn't Keith Ellison, the only Muslim in Congress, not speaking out against this? Why isn't the left wing media, the defender of Islam, speaking out against this?

If the Republicans were doing this all hell would break loose.

US - They told me if George W. Bush were re-elected

this would happen.

They were right!

£3.6bn boost for Palestinian cause

Iraqi oil exceeds pre-war output

My, my, my, the BBC forced to report good news out of Iraq. On top of this, oil is almost double what it was then.

The good news doesn't stop the BBC from deriding British troops though. Typical.

US - A BAD PRESS DAY FOR THE DEMOCRATS

More of this please.

Afghanistan - BBC clueless about Musa Qala

We pay the BBC billions and this is the kind of crap they produce.

Compare the BBC report to this one.

Here's the reason for the vast difference.

BBC - "It has since become the main centre of drugs trading in Afghanistan, the BBC's David Loyn in Kabul says. "

ABC - "As the only journalist to join NATO forces entering the town..."

And that makes all the difference in the world.

BBC - Afghan army troops have captured the Taleban-held town of Musa Qala...

ABC - The town of about 45,000 people was secured at about 9:30 a.m. as Afghan troops, steered by British soldiers and U.S. Green Berets ...

BBC - The insurgents have pulled out of what was the only major Afghan centre in Taleban hands, reportedly melting away into the mountains. [Reported by whom? Certainly not the BBC]

ABC - I watched the Taliban being pounded these last few days with overwhelming force -- vapor trails circled in the clear blue sky over the Helmand desert as B1 and B52 bombers backed by A10 tank busters, F16s, Apache helicopters and Specter gunships were used to kill hundreds of Taliban fighters. [The Taleban may have melted alright, but it was from a bomb]

BBC - Twelve Taleban fighters and two children are reported to have been killed in the four days of fighting since Friday and a UK soldier died when an explosion hit his vehicle. [Again, "reported" by whom? The Taleban?]

A second Nato soldier died in the area on Sunday. [A Nato soldier just died in the area? From what or how?]

ABC - While hundreds of Taliban are believed to have been killed, two British soldiers and one American soldier lost their lives. All the deaths, however, resulted from vehicles striking mines left not, it is believed, by the Taliban but by Soviet forces in the 1980s.

Half of Scots see Muslims as 'cultural threat'

The other half need to wake up.

What's interesting about the article is what's left unsaid. The "prejudice" against Muslims is attributed to the war on terror, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the recent Muslim 7/7 and Glasgow terror attacks.

I give the Scots more credit than that and attribute it more to an awareness that Islam is an intolerant and radical religion. Since 9/11 the world has awoken to Islam's persecution of Christians, Jews, women and gays. Scots have taken a hard look at Islam and Islamic countries and said no thank you.

Canada - Hijab can divide families

It can also get you killed by your own father.

More left wing defense of Islam.

"Ausma Khan, the editor-in-chief of Toronto-based Muslim Girl magazine, said research into the readership of her publication shows that the decision to wear the hijab – the traditional Muslim headscarf – is almost always a choice the girl makes on her own."


Except that the hijab is no such thing and is in fact a radical Muslim political statment which is banned in several Muslim countries.

Just how far is the left willing to go to support radical Islam?

"The suggestion of violent disputes between a 16-year-old girl in Mississauga and her father over her desire to show her hair and live a "normal" lifestyle raises questions about tensions between parents and children in the Muslim community."


Suggestion!?! The girl was murdered by her father.

Even that report leaves out the reason for her murder. See here for that.

US - Clinton and the $4600 question

Who are all these people giving this exact amount? Check out the graph for the $2300, exactly half that amount, donations.

More in US see progress in Iraq

The AP reports.

This line should hit you like a brick.

"WASHINGTON - Growing numbers of people think the U.S. is making progress in Iraq and will eventually be able to claim some success there, a poll showed Tuesday in a sign the politics of the war could become more complicated for Democrats."


Got that? The AP thinks that progress in Iraq, i.e. success for America, means problems for the Democrats. Turned around, defeat for America is good for the Democrats. It doesn't get any plainer than that.

Canada - Teen girl choked for not wearing hijab

by her father.

This despite the fact that the hijab is not an Islamic religious symbol. But he already knew that.

US - Clinton seen as devious

Looks like they're right.

Today is Pearl Harbour day

Just a reminder.

US - Did Morgan Spurlock find Osama bin Laden?

MSNBC almost wet their pants that he did.

"Rumors are flying that filmmaker Morgan Spurlock of "Super Size Me" fame may have done what the United States government has failed to do for the last six years — find Osama bin Laden."


What MSNBC doesn't tell you is Spurlock's background.

No wonder there's PEACOCK PURGE

Iraq - Gates Announces More Troop Withdrawals

As Iraq Returns to Normalcy

"Baghdad, Dec 5 (VOI) - U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said on Wednesday that the biggest American division is to withdraw from Iraq by December 2007.

The withdrawal of more American troops is to take place next February and March, provided that security conditions continue to significantly improve. "



Shouldn't this be getting a lot more attention?

UK - Lyrical terrorist is no Joan of Arc

Tell it to the judge.

UK - Imam's daughter in hiding after death threats

US - What you should know about Obama

More reasons not to vote for Democrats.

Iraq - smearing our troops

It's what the left does and MSM are happy to go along.

Iraq - Democrats are worse politicians

Moving the goal posts.

UK - Hospital staff make sure Muslim patients' beds face Mecca

five times a day.

UK "Make my day, sir, shoot a hoodie"

Jeremy Clarkson gets mugged by reality.

I was rolling on the floor laughing. Read the whole thing but here's a snippet.

"It’s this. Plainly this boy’s parents are useless, allowing him to be out and about on the streets, harassing passers-by at will. Think about it. Every single time one of these children is found stabbed or shot, his mum and stepdad always tell the papers he was a “good lad”. And that he “didn’t deserve to die”.

And nobody ever says: “Well, if he was such a frigging angel, what was he doing on a derelict building site at four in the morning, you halfwits?” He didn’t deserve to die, for sure, but you do, for having the parenting skills of a Welsh dresser. "

UK - BBC 'Tell the truth' seminars

Like that's going to work.

"Training to remind staff about the importance of telling viewers the truth will cost the BBC more than £1 million in staff time and expenses. "


That would be our tax money paying to teach BBC staff to do what they should be doing already. Pathetic.

UK - Group targets grooming of girls

This is a very serious and growing problem, so much so that the government is providing schools with a video to warn of the dangers. I'm guessing that the video, like this BBC report, will fail to mention who it is that is doing the targeting and who is being targeted.

Even when someone tried to alert the public to the culprits so they could defend themselves, the report was banned.

"A Channel 4 documentary that claims Asian men in Bradford have been "grooming" young white girls for sex was withdrawn hours before it was due to be broadcast last night after the police warned it could spark racial violence.

Channel 4 said it was acting as a "responsible broadcaster" by postponing the screening of Edge of the City after West Yorkshire police said it would inflame an already combustible racial situation in the city.

The documentary, which examines the work of Bradford social services, includes claims that "charismatic, wealthier" Asian men are targeting white girls as young as 11 for sex and drug abuse."

UK - BBC 'took 21/7 Muslim terrorist trainers paintballing'

and failed to notify police of their terror connections.

"Nasreen Suleaman, a researcher on the programme, told the court that Mr Hamid, 50, contacted her after the July 2005 attack and told her of his association with the bombers. But she said that she felt no obligation to contact the police with this information. Ms Suleaman said that she informed senior BBC managers but was not told to contact the police."


She felt "no obligation to contact police" even though she and the BBC knew what motivated them to go paintballing. Of the 7/7 Muslim terrorists, the BBC had this to say.

"The men used to spend time paintballing, trips that would take place immediately after watching extremely violent videos depicting Muslim suffering around the world."


What would motivate Suleaman to cover up for these British born Muslim terrorists of Pakistani descent? Possibly because she, like them, is a British born Muslim of Pakistani descent. Now you know why she "felt no obligation" to inform Police of their terror connections. Working for the BBC helps explain that as well.

How ironic that Suleaman wrote this BBC report.

"The police are considering proposals to share intelligence and information with Muslims before launching anti-terror operations. "


This isn't the only instance of Suleaman supporting jihadists. In this BBC report Suleaman defends the wearing of the veil.

"There are roughly two schools of thought, one which says that it is obligatory and another that believes it is highly recommended but ultimately a matter of personal choice. "


Remember now, Suleaman is not merely a Muslim, she is a researcher as well. Me? I'm merely a blogger and even I know that Islamic scholars agree the veil is not obligatory under Islam. In fact, it's not in the Koran and is in fact banned in several Muslim countries as a radical political statement. The BBC itself reported that British Muslim scholars agree there is no obligation under Islam to wear the veil.

"Dr Abdul Bary Mailk, president of the Bradford and Leeds Ahmadiyya Muslim Association, said wearing the full face veil, or niqab, was not an obligation under Islam. "


As for the BBC, it has a long history of supporting jihadists.

Iran - Clinton says take no action on terrorists group

After voting to declare an Iranian group a terrorist organization, Clinton says no action should be taken against them.

"If we thought that anything in that resolution gave even a pretense of legitimacy to President Bush taking any action, we wouldn't have voted that way," she said.


Obama isn't much better.

"Clinton was the only senator in the race to support the Iranian resolution. Delaware Sen. Joseph Biden and Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd opposed it, and Obama did not vote because he was campaigning."


And these people want to be in charge of the defense of America?

US - Wash. Post Obama story under fire

While this report is about the controversy over the Post's reporting of the debunked myth that Obama is secretly a Muslim, it's revealing that MSM consider being a Muslim a bad thing for a candidate.

UK - Muhammad Bear - Muslim protest rings hollow

Ever notice how Muslims rise up only when it's Islam that is under the spotlight?

While I am glad SAIRA KHAN feels compelled to protest the barbaric treatment of Ms. Gibbons and the rape victim who is to be lashed, yes victim, in Saudi Arabia, one wonders why Ms. Khan isn't calling for protests against the persecution of Christians, Jews, women or gays in Muslim lands.

Where was Ms. Khan when the Christian convert was hounded out of Afghanistan? Where was she when the teenage gays were hung in Iran? Why does she not speak out against the Saudi school textbooks that preach hate against Jews and Christians? Why does she not demonstrate against the persecution of Christians in Muslim lands like Egypt or Saudi Arabia where Bibles are banned? Why has she not protested against the Muslim preachers of hate that openly preach hate in British mosques? Why has she not protested against the barbaric rape laws of many other Islamic countries, where a woman needs 4 male witnesses to allege rape? Why hasn't she protested against Muslim preachers who teach that it is ok to beat your wife?

Ms. Khan notes her distain for the Muhammad cartoons, her belief that Muhammad should never be depicted but that the Muslim world's reaction to them was way overboard. She fails to mention that these same cartoons, minus the ones fabricated by a Muslim preacher to stir up hate against the west, were first published in an Egyptian newspaper without any problem. She also seems ignorant of the fact that for centuries Muhammad was depicted in art - by Muslims! This notion, along with the covering up of women, is a recent invention by Muslims. In fact, the veil is not a religious symbol and is banned in some Muslim countries.

All of that makes this statment by Ms. Khan ridiculus.

"This is the perfect opportunity for us to show that Islam is not the faith of hatred and intolerance that many imagine it to be. "


No, Ms. Khan, this is a perfect opportunity for you and others like to you to deflect attention away from the root causes of these problems around the world - Islam.

Iraq - Bill Clinton Flatly Asserts He Opposed War at Start

He was for it before he was against it. Typical lying Democrat.

Here's Clinton in 1998 on why he attacked Iraq. As you read this, remember how the Democrats, like his wife, keep saying they were misled into the war.

"Earlier today, I ordered America's armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces. Their mission is to attack Iraq's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors.

Their purpose is to protect the national interest of the United States, and indeed the interests of people throughout the Middle East and around the world.

Saddam Hussein must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with nuclear arms, poison gas or biological weapons. "


More flip flopping here.

"A spokesman for Bill Clinton tried to downplay the former president's comments by distinguishing between the authority to go to war, which both Clintons supported, and President Bush's decision to use that authority when he did."


Say what? If you didn't want him to go to war Bill you shouldn't have supported giving him authority to go to war. Duh.

Iraq - Baghdad: A tale of two cities

"Reporters say Baghdad too dangerous despite surge" blares Reuters.

"Cabbies, Though Still Wary, Find a Wider Comfort Zone" headlines the Washington Post.

The Retuers report has this clanger:

"The survey by the Washington-based Pew Research Center showed that many U.S. journalists believe coverage has painted too rosy a picture of the conflict."


Only in their left wing mind.

Update

More here.

"Today, as the Associated Press reports: "Twilight brings traffic jams to the main shopping district of this once-affluent corner of Baghdad, and hundreds of people stroll past well-stocked vegetable stands, bakeries and butcher shops." Women shop in its reopened stores, and men drink tea in sidewalk cafes."

US - Clinton Buckling Under the Pressure of an Unfavorable Poll

Better get used to it.

US - In Elderly Women, Clinton Sees an Electoral Edge

The New York Times reported on Monday.

Sri Lanka: Truth, bias and the BBC

Truth and the BBC in the same sentence?

I love beeboid thinking.

"One is that people really care what the BBC says about Sri Lanka. It is the only international broadcaster with a permanent presence in Sri Lanka."


Well gee, if you're the only game in town!

And talk about delusional.

"The second is that, no matter how much we strive to maintain our guidelines of impartiality and accuracy, there will always be people on either side convinced we are biased against them."


Well Bernard Gabony when you openly brag about being left wing, anti American, pro Islamist, lie and fabricate reports, it's easy to be convinced.

Here's an alternate view of the BBC's Sri Lankan coverage, written over a year ago and mentions Mr. Gabony.

Democracy & Radical Islam

" The main cause of Islamic radicalism is Islamic doctrine, not lack of democracy."

Yep.

Sudan teddy insult teacher: Readers' views

from the BBC.

Got to love the BBC headline. From that it sounds like the teddy was insulted. Bwahahah.

Read the comments. Don't you find it annoying that Muslims keep demanding that we respect their customs while at the same time demand that we change our customs to fit theirs?

If Muhammad is so revered why do Muslims name babies after him? Surely no mortal should be named after such a supposedly exalted person.

On the positive side, if there is one, this is just another example of how barbaric Islam is.

Iraq isn't Vietnam

But that doesn't stop the BBC from trying to make it so.

"But, inevitably, comparisons are being made between the two conflicts.

In some ways the similarities are obvious.

There is the sense of a war entered into under false pretences. "


The "inevitably" of it inevitably comes from the left, as does the "sense" of false pretences. The BBC goes on:

"There is the feeling of being bogged down in a conflict with no obvious end in sight. "


Really? How clueless can the BBC get? Troops are being pulled out without replacements, more troops reductions have been announced and Iraq and the US just signed an agreement to negotiate more troop reductions in 2008. All of this comes on the heels of drastic reductions in civilan and military deaths and the defeat of al Qaeda in Iraq.

If you think that's bad, listen to Jonathan Marcus totally misreprensent Bush and the facts.

"And, just as in Vietnam, there is the fear that the very nature of the conflict has been misunderstood.

For a long time President George Bush refused to accept that there was any comparison between Iraq and Vietnam.

In April 2004, for example, he insisted that any analogy between the two conflicts was "false" and that making such comparisons sent the wrong message both to US troops and to enemies of the US.

But in August of this year Mr Bush changed his tune.

Speaking to a veterans' organisation in Kansas City he said one unmistakeable legacy of Vietnam was that "the price of America's withdrawal was paid by millions of innocent citizens".

Their agony, he said, "would add to our vocabulary new terms like 'boat-people', 're-education camps' and 'killing fields'". "


Got that? "one umnistakeable legacy" and from that this beeboid claims Bush "changed his tune" about comparing Iraq to Vietnam! He did no such thing! Bush said we learned a valuable lesson in withdrawing too soon. In essence Bush was saying don't cut and run in Iraq like the Democrats did in Vietnam.

Marcus is typical of the left wing idiots that inhabit the BBC.

Iraq: Beyond the Drop in Violence

A good look at the state of Iraq.

Read the whole thing but here's the conclusion.

"IRAQ today is a hundred times better than what it would have been under Saddam in any imaginable circumstances. Statistics of violence don't begin to measure the efforts of a whole nation to re-emerge from the darkest night in its history. And in that sense, the news from Iraq since April 2003 has always been more good than bad.

What is new is that now more Americans appear willing to acknowledge this - good news in itself. As long as the United States remains resolute in its support for the new Iraq, there will be more good news than bad from what is at present the main battlefield in the War on Terror."


Despite all the efforts of the left and the left wing media to support the terrorists in Iraq, they have been defeated.

Iraq - Remember Fallujah?

Here's a reminder.

Now that Fallujah is a success, the BBC and the rest of the left wing media ignore it.

UK - Islam and a "Web of criticism"

That's how Josh Freedman Berthoud feels we are judging Muslims and Islamic countries. According to him we shouldn't use the Internet as a tool to learn and understand other cultures. What Josh leaves out of his argument is the fact that we don't just rely on the Internet to as he puts it:

"However, we must likewise be resistant to the urge to use the Internet as some kind of window onto a world of depravity, twitching our curtains, tutting, as we criticise our new neighbours."


Well Josh that might have some small measure of truth if we didn't have newspapers, television, radio, magazines and our own two eyes to go along with what others report on the Internet. I've heard some pretty lame excuses for denying the barbarism of Islam, but this is one of the lamest. Typical left wing drivel.

Be sure and read the comments.

US fire kills Iraq bus passengers

The BBC uses a tragedy to further its own anti war agenda - again.

"Up to four Iraqi civilians are reported to have died in Baghdad when US troops fired at a minibus taking them to work.

The US military in Iraq said its forces opened fire at the vehicle "after the driver failed to heed a warning shot".

A US military statement said the road the minibus was travelling on, in the Shaab area of north-east Baghdad, was only for use by passenger cars. "


While tremendous progress is being made, Iraq is still a dangerous place and people would be wise to heed directions, warnings and curfews. But just to make sure you get the idea that the Americans are trigger happy, the BBC goes on.

"The US military has also given details of an incident that happened on Monday when three Iraqi civilians, including a child, were killed by its troops manning a roadblock 200 kilometres (140 miles) north of Baghdad. It said their vehicle approached the roadblock in the city of Baiji at high speed and the driver ignored warnings to stop. "


In both cases it appears the drives failed to stop after warning shots were fired. How many times have we seen suicide bombers force people to ignore warnings? And mini vans are favorite of the bombers since they can carry far more explosives. So, shouldn't the headline be "Iraqis die after ignoring warnings to stop"? But that isn't eye catching or anti American enough.

Near the end the BBC want to drive home the point.

"Correspondents say the US military presence is unpopular among many of the Iraqi population, because of what is seen as the heavy-handed use of force by US troops. "


Ah, the infamous "correspondents say". Would that be left wing BBC, al Reuters, or Guardian correspondents?

Here's an al Reuters report on the incidents but interestingly leads with why the police and military have to be on guard all the time.

"BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Nine people were killed when a suicide bomber posing as a shepherd attacked police north of Baghdad on Tuesday and at least six civilians died in a spate of shootings by U.S. soldiers, security officials said.

Police at the Diyala province headquarters in Baquba, 65 km (40 miles) north of Baghdad, said they were taken by surprise when the suicide bomber herded several sheep towards a checkpoint before detonating a belt packed with explosives."


On the one hand we have a suicide bomber hearding sheep that isn't challenged and he kills 9 people and on the other, civilians are killed because they failed to stop after warning shots are fired. What would you do?

Reuters - bin Laden is a militant

That's what al Reuters calls the world's most wanted terrorist.

"Soon, God willing, (we will post) a new message to the European people from the lion Imam who defeated the Americans and tyrants, Sheikh Osama bin Laden," said the pro-al Qaeda Web site which regularly posts messages from the militant leader."


and

"Bin Laden's last message was released on October 22. The Saudi-born militant then urged unity between Iraq's Sunni rebels."

US - Cautious hope for Mid-East talks

The BBC has this to say about the talks.

"The talks simply seek to assure both sides that the United States and the big Arab powers will do what is necessary to support a dialogue, and to get a firm commitment to the launch of that dialogue, he says. "


Just how far will "the big Arab powers", including Saudi Arabia, go to "do what is necessary"? Not far it would seem.

" Saudi Arabia's participation in the U.S.-sponsored talks on Middle East peace was seen as a diplomatic coup for the Bush administration but the kingdom has made clear there will be no handshakes with Israeli officials."

Iraq - Basra Violence Down 90 Percent

More good news from Iraq.

UK - BBC phone review gives all-clear

Does this sound like "all-clear" to you?

"Deloitte spot-checked six shows out of a possible 98 that use such lines. "


Compare the BBC's headline with the last sentence in their report.

"Deloitte was not commissioned to give an overall judgement on the programmes using premium phone-lines themselves."


Are there any adults working at the BBC?

Iran - UN admits it's clueless about Iran's nukes

No surprise there.

Iraq - Iran replaces America as the enemy

More good news from Iraq.

UK - How accurate is the BBC?

Not very when it comes to America. See here and here.

Simple mistakes you say? Not likely.

Iraq - New boss turns the tables on Al Qaeda

More good news from Iraq.

Meanwhile...Iraqi refugees flood home

Iraq - Myth of the looted museum

continues in the Times.

"The ransacking of the museum in April 2003 in the aftermath of the US invasion provoked worldwide outrage. American soldiers were criticised for watching as looters, taking advantage of the Iraqi government’s collapse, plundered the building.

“It was as if a hurricane had hit,” said Donny George, the museum director at the time, describing his return to the museum after it had been plundered. “What the looters could not take, they smashed.”

Some 15,000 items vanished. In time, some priceless objects were recovered, including the 5,200-year-old sacred vase of Warka, the world’s oldest-known carved-stone ritual vessel, which was returned in the back of a car. "


This myth was debunked years ago.

Back in 2003 Donny George sang a different tune.

"Donny George, research director, said: "There was a mistake. Someone asked us what is the number of pieces in the whole collection. We said over 170,000, and they took that as the number lost.

"Reporters came in and saw empty shelves and reached the conclusion that all was gone. But before the war we evacuated all of the small pieces and emptied the show cases except for fragile or heavy material that was difficult to move." Some pieces were hidden in the vaults of the central bank and others at secret locations, he added."


So, how much was lost?

"A carefully prepared storage plan, used in the Iran-Iraq war and the first Gulf war, ensured that tens of thousands of pieces were saved, they said. They now believe that the number of items taken was in the low thousands, and possibly hundreds."

Britons oppose Muslim veils

and other Islamic things. Good for them.

UK - BBC continues support for terrorism

Compare the BBC's report on PM Gordon Brown's statement in the Sun to the actual document. Notice what the BBC left out?

"We will work with America and all countries of the European Union to defeat terrorist extremism."


"We must also build better community relations and a stronger sense of our shared British values – what is sometimes called winning the battle of hearts and minds."

"We must isolate Islamic extremists who in our colleges and local communities seek to manipulate and divide our society."

"We will celebrate and build upon those things that unite Britain – the shared values, traditions and aspirations that promote a strong shared British culture and identity."


Brown lays the blame for terrorism, correctly, on Islamic extremists, calls for an end to multiculturalism and says we have to work with America to fight Islamic terrorism - all of which the BBC left out of their report. Revealing.

UK - Terrorism is a mystery to the BBC

Or so they'd have you believe. Here is the BBC's headline for a report on the first female Muslim terrorist convicted in the UK. "The enigma that is the 'Lyrical Terrorist' " See? She's a mystery to the BBC. What part is the mystery BBC? The fact that she's a terrorist? Female? Writes poems? Or the three in combination? Is what motivated her a mystery to you BBC? You might be left wondering as well from the BBC's report.

The BBC sets the tone with the first 4 paragraphs wherein we are told she is shy, dresses modestly, is loved by her mother, is given the freedom of the court and is polite. Nice set up eh? The BBC's got your sympathy for this terrorist already.

The BBC then go on to report how she merely downloaded some terrorist material from the web, wrote poems and chatted online about watching terrorist videos. The BBC note how she sobbed when found guilty and even allege some on the jury cried too: "two female members of the jury also appeared to be wiping away tears." For all we know they could have had a cold. On the other hand, given the state of Londonistan, perhaps we should be surprised they convicted her of anything at all.

You will note that the BBC fails to mention Islam at all, the source for her call to terrorism.

It's not just the BBC that is taken in, the judge called her a mystery as well and allowed her to leave by the rear exit.

Now after all that sympathy, here's a dose of reality.

"When they raided her home, they found folders on the computer called "Samina’z Stuff" and "Copy of Handbooks" as well as dozens of handwritten notes hidden in the pages of a book and a bracelet which carried the word jihad [holy war].

On a mirror were found the words "Lyrical Terrorist" and on one piece of paper she had written: "The desire within me increases every day to go for martyrdom, the need to go increases second by second."

In her poems she wrote about killing heathens, adding: "Kafirs your time will come soon, and no one will save you from your doom."

Police found a copy of Osama Bin Laden’s Declaration of War and a passage in which she praised the al-Qa’eda leader and added: "We will not let you have any peace. We will show no remorse, no mercy and no regrets"

In one poem, called "Raising Mujahideen [holy fighter] Children," she recommended indoctrinating children from the age of seven, adding: "Show the children videos and pictures of mujahideen and tell them to become strong like them."

Explain how the Mujahideen fear no man - they fear Allah alone, and for his sake they are able, willing and capable to do anything in defence of Islam." Malik joined an extremist organisation called Jihad Way set up to disseminate terrorist propaganda and support al-Qa’eda."


Here's how the BBC describe her favorite videos: "in the section for her favourite TV shows, she entered "watching videos by Muslim brothers in Iraq, yep, the beheading ones." You see? It's all about Iraq, she was merely agitated by the war in Iraq, that's why she did such things. Nothing to do with Islam. Or is it? Here's the part the BBC left out.

"Under favourite TV shows, it said: "Watching videos by my Muslim brothers in Iraq, yep the beheading ones, watching video messages by Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahri [his deputy] and other videos which show massacres of the kaffirs."


Kaffirs would be you and me. You see, this isn't about Iraq, or Afganistan or any other foreign policy issues - this is about Islam versus the west.

US - Clinton: "Ladies First"

Sums her up pretty well.

Iraq - A miracle

From the AP no less.

"BAGHDAD - Twilight brings traffic jams to the main shopping district of this once-affluent corner of Baghdad and hundreds of people stroll past well-stocked vegetable stands, bakeries and butcher shops.

To many in Amariyah, it seems little short of a miracle.

Just six months ago, this mostly Sunni neighborhood was one of the centers of al-Qaida in Iraq operations. The district in western Baghdad was hit by more than a dozen bombings and shootings some days. Few people dared to venture onto the streets.

On Tuesday, women shopped and men drank tea in sidewalk cafes. Occasionally, U.S. soldiers walking the streets were greeted with salaams and smiles.

What is happening here reflects similar trends across Baghdad and parts of Iraq, where civilian and U.S. military casualties have dropped sharply in the past two months. But the speed of the turnaround in places such as Amariyah has taken almost everyone — including U.S. military forces in the area — by surprise."

Iraq - Signs of hope

Take that al Qaeda.

America less popular in the world?

That's what the left keep telling themselves. But consider this.

"What’s particularly interesting is that, years ago when the Bush presidency was new and Iraq was a fresh issue, the left told us constantly that George Bush was making America less popular in the world. Yet during the President’s term in office three of our traditional allies (Canada, Germany and now France) elected leaders that displaced virulently anti-Bush and anti-American leaders with people more of Sarkozy’s temperament (Stephen Harper in Canada and Angela Merkel in Germany). "

Iraq - When Good News Is Bad News

for the left.

"Frankly, I don't understand why so many mock us for wanting a future for Iraq. Is your hatred for George Bush so great that you prefer to see millions of civilians suffer just to prove him wrong?

It really comes down to this: you are determined to see Iraq become a permanent hellhole because you hate Bush. And we are determined to see Iraq become a success, because we want to live."

UK - Support for the BBC from a surprising source

That's what this BBC employee claims.

"support for the BBC from a perhaps surprising source
Nick Reynolds (BBC) | Homepage | 06.11.07 - 2:16 pm | # "


Really Nick? What exactly did Hitchens say?

"Evidence from the USA shows that privately run broadcast networks - ABC, CBS and NBC - are just as dominated by received liberal opinion as the BBC. "


Oh, the "support" gets even better.

"This would be served by the open acknowledgement of bias by presenters and reporters, and a commitment to ensure that rival views were aired, and that on occasion programmes should be presented by adversaries, so that ( at the very least ) no public figure was ever interviewed by a sympathiser. Because of the licence fee, we do have a faint but actual chance of compelling the BBC to behave in this way. Long years of criticisms are beginning to have an effect and, redoubled, may actually achieve change since the BBC is going to need all the allies it can get if it is to survive thee next 20 years intact. I find it encouraging that many intelligent BBC figures, such as Andrew Marr, are now at last accepting that the Corporation does have a strong cultural bias to the left. It took time."


And more "support":

"It doesn't try, like the BBC, to pretend that it was ever unbiased in the past."


To a BBC employee like Nick, this is considered "support".

This is why it's taking so long and is so hard to change the left wing bias at the BBC, left wing bias is so entrenched in BBC employees they think it's a "normal" world view. It doesn't occur to them that most of the world doesn't think like them. You need to get out more often Nick.

US - ABC and manufacturing the news

Michelle has the story.

"ABC is doing a social experiment in Birmingham that includes having same-sex couples show affection for each other in public, according to Birmingham police department sources.

FOX6 first learned about this story from a Southside merchant who pointed out an RV parked at the corner of 20th Street and 11th Avenue South. The merchant said ABC was working on a week-long project to see how people would react to things like public displays of affection by gay and lesbian couples."


To which this suggestion is made.

"I wonder if they would consider sending a professor wearing an “I Love W” button and an American flag pin into the faculty lounge at Harvard or some other liberal ivory tower with a hidden camera. I would love to see that experiment. I can’t imagine anyone at NBC doing that one. Maybe John Stossel at ABC, though?

…Perhaps when I get back from deployment, you can follow me around Seattle and see how I get treated wearing my Navy uniform…

…Why don’t you set up some white guy with hidden cameras, put a George Bush T-Shirt on him and have him walk down a street in Pakistan. Or, better yet, have him walk down a street in Detroit. I’ll just bet you could get a lot of bigoted reactions…

…* Wear a pro-life t-shirt to a Women’s Studies class.
* Wear a Halliburton company polo shirt to the Kos Kidz annual blogmeet.
* PUBLISH CARTOONS WITH MOHAMMED IN THEM…"

Both sides.

Afghan officials: Better care saves 89,000 kids this year

More good news from Afghanistan that should be getting more attention.

Iran - Democrats: "The Grand Bargainers"

It was the Democrats that allowed North Korea to build its nuclear reactors and put it on the road to nuclear weapons. It took Bush and the Republicans tough stance and actions against N. Korea to get it to start to dismantle them.

Given a chance, the Democrats want to pursue their same appeasement policy with Iran. Michael Leeden has some thoughts on that plan.

"As I have said before, this sort of behavior fulfills Einstein's definition of madness: continuing to do the same thing, hoping for a different outcome. Obama is not alone in this asylum; Senator Chuck Hagel has written to the president to call for negotiations, and now some 28 Democratic-plus-one-"independent" Senators are thumping their navels, telling the president that they have not authorized "war" with Iran.

But there is war with Iran. That war started in 1979 and has been waged non-stop ever since. By them. If the Senators want to pursue appeasement, they're entitled. But they at least should be honest about it. Instead of saying that they don't want us to wage war against the Islamic Republic, they should say they don't want us to defend ourselves against Iranian aggression."

Iraq - Thousands return to safer Iraqi capital

Nice to see the AP reporting the good news out of Iraq.

"BAGHDAD - In a dramatic turnaround, more than 3,000 Iraqi families driven out of their Baghdad neighborhoods have returned to their homes in the past three months as sectarian violence has dropped, the government said Saturday. "

Saudi Arabia is hub of world terror

and the engine is Islam.

"It was an occasion for tears and celebration as the Knights of Martyrdom proclaimed on video: “Our brother Turki fell during the rays of dawn, covered in blood after he was hit by the bullets of the infidels, following in the path of his brother.” The flowery language could not disguise the brutal truth that a Saudi family had lost two sons fighting for Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

The elder brother, Khaled, had been a deputy commander of a crack jihadist “special forces” unit. After his “glorious” death, Turki took his place.

“He was deeply affected by the martyrdom of his brother,” the Knights said. “He became more ambitious and more passionate about defending the land of Islam and dying as a martyr, like his brother.” "

N Korea nuclear shutdown to start

The BBC and CNN both report on this historic news - without mentioning President Bush.

Iraq - Days when no troops died

are getting more frequent.

And business is booming.

The BBC is as you would expect silent on the great news, except for a "Have your say" page on their website. Go here and read the comments. Here's the most recommended one I could find as of this writing.

Added: Friday, 2 November, 2007, 20:50 GMT 20:50 UK

US - Terror trial update

Revealing how MSM are ignoring this story.

New channels galore as BBC aims to rule the world

More outlets for their far left wing agenda like this.

"New stations part of drive for £222m profits in 5 years - US is key target in scheme for global expansion"


Time to end the license fee then.

BBC video report on the Palestinians.

Love it.

Afghanistan - Key tribal leader on verge of deserting Taliban

Shades of Iraq.

UK - Lessons in hate found at leading mosques

This happens around the world.

"Books calling for the beheading of lapsed Muslims, ordering women to remain indoors and forbidding interfaith marriage are being sold inside some of Britain’s leading mosques, according to research seen by The Times....

Extremist literature, including passages supporting the stoning of adulterers and waging violent jihad, was also found on sale at many other mosques regarded as mainstream institutions. "


The author of the report seems confused however.

"The report said: “On the one hand, the results were reassuring: in only a minority of institutions – approximately 25 per cent – was radical material found.

“What is more worrying is that these are among the best-funded and most dynamic institutions in Muslim Britain – some of which are held up as mainstream bodies. Many of the institutions featured here have been endowed with official recognition.” "


There is nothing reassuring about any of this. Just because they didn't find more doesn't mean there isn't more. And the fact that they did find such material in the top mosques is very worring, but not surprising if you're a regular reader of mine. Hardliners taking over mosques is nothing new.

UK Islamic schools teach that Jews and Christians are apes and pigs. Similar teachings have been found in Islamic schools in the US.

What all this tells us is that most people are in denial about the religion of Islam or they prefer not address a religious problem - and Islam is a problem.

Iraq - The pulse of America

The news out of Iraq is so big that even the left wing media have to report on the sharp drop in deaths. While the Democrats call Iraq a failure and want to cut and run, the American public cheer the troops in public and shun Hollywood's left wing films about the war.

Good for them.

Iraq - Beauchamp roundup

People are still puzzled by The New Republics refusal to admit and retract Beauchamp's false stories alleging misconduct by American soldiers in Iraq. I don't see why, for as long as they don't some people will still belive they are true.

See, here, here and here.

UK - BBC: "delusional soul"

sums up the BBC so well.

Do read the whole article but this sums up the BBC so well.

"Here is the utopian temperament, the ghost of Munich 1938, the delusional soul that reduces evil to economics and idolizes peace at the expense of human freedom. While Mr. Sachs was waxing eloquent about our shared values, terrorists in Iraq drove a car to a security check point and were waved through because there were two small children in the back seat. They fled the vehicle and blew it up—with the children inside. While Mr. Sachs was dining with fellow appeasers on the BBC expense account, Britain sentenced five men to life in prison for a bomb plot linked to al Qaeda that could have killed thousands of civilians; in addition to chemical weapons, they had hoped to acquire nuclear material to create a dirty bomb.

Not to worry: Such unpleasantness can swiftly be overcome with the right mix of technology, politics and patience. “The issue here is not religious strife that is out of control and boiling over,” says Mr. Sachs. “It’s controllable. It’s a matter of politics, it’s a matter of management, it’s a matter of understanding, it’s a matter of institutions, it’s a matter of how we behave. We have to see how there’s another way. So these are processes, peace is a process.”

Lewis Mumford, who joined Reinhold Niebuhr’s group of “Christian realists” in the 1930s, saw a different and more sinister process at work. “Unless we head off these false hopes, lazy wishful attitudes, and perfectionist illusions, we will continue to defeat all our legitimate expectations and deplete the moral energies we will badly need to achieve the relative goods that will be open to us,” he wrote. “Unfortunately, the spirit of utopianism has not yet been exorcized.”

As Mr. Sachs completes his lecture series this week, now would be a good time to call in an exorcist or two."

"The Republican took 54% of the vote to win outright over his nearest rival, Democrat Walter Boasso, who got 18%.

Outgoing Democratic Governor Kathleen Blanco chose not to run again after she was widely criticised for her handling of the 2005 Hurricane Katrina crisis."


Not by the BBC she wasn't. Neither was New Orleans mayor, Ray Nagin, who was branded a hero by the BBC. It was't till I sent a photograph of the flooded buses all neatly lined up, that Nagin failed to use for evacuating the poor, that one BBC reporter told the truth.

Iraq - The deepest shame of Haditha

Belongs to the Democrats and the left wing media.

"Many, including Members of Congress, were looking for another moral bonfire to discredit the cause in Iraq, and they found a pretext in Haditha. The critics rushed to judgment; facts and evidence were discarded to fit the antiwar template.

Most despicably, they created and stoked a political atmosphere that exposes American soldiers in the line of duty, risking and often losing their lives, to criminal liability for the chaos of war. This is the deepest shame of Haditha, and the one for which apologies ought to be made
."

We're waiting Murtha.

US - Feds recommend closing Saudi school in Va.

The UK should be doing the same thing.

"In a report released Thursday, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom broadly criticized what it calls a lack of religious freedom in Saudi society and promotion of religious extremism at Saudi schools.

Particular criticism is leveled at the Islamic Saudi Academy, a private school serving nearly 1,000 students in grades K-12 at two campuses in northern Virginia's Fairfax County.

The commission's report says the academy hews closely to the curriculum used at Saudi schools, which they criticize for promoting hatred of and intolerance against Jews, Christians and Shiite Muslims."


Remember that when some left wing nut tries to tell you that it's a small fringe element of Islam that is causing all the terror around the world.

When are we going to start focusing on the Mosques? We know from undercover investigations and videos, that the same hate is being preached in the mosques.

US - How The New York Times Fell Apart

This would be happening to the BBC if we were not forced to pay for it.

"Like most newspapers, the Times decided to become more timely, more hip, and more judgmental than the electronic media -- when it should have become better reported, more objective, and better written; professionalism being the one arena where the new competitors would have a hard time competing. What made the Times' decision not to pursue this strategy particularly stupid was that it was, after all, 'America's newspaper of record', a role in which it justly reveled. But you can't hold that title while pandering to the political and cultural views of readers on the Upper West Side."

UK - Muslim Tories: 'Iran has right to nuclear arms'

And that's not all.

"It also argues that preachers who advocate a rejection of democracy and its institutions should not be denied entry into Britain."


Now you know whose side their on.

"The group calls on the party to be more sympathetic towards Iran. It says: "Given Iran's position in the Middle East, facing a nuclear-armed Israel, Iran appears to have legitimate reasons for seeking nuclear weapons for defensive purposes."


But it is Iran that has threatened to wipe Israel off the map and not the reverse.

BBC website hit in newsroom cost cuts

Which means less left wing propaganda put out by the BBC.

"They said the website will be updated less frequently and carry fewer stories as a result of budgets being slashed.

The BBC is expected to merge television, radio and online newsrooms under a series of cost-cutting measures aimed at reducing the number of BBC journalists who cover the same stories.

However, with three operations integrated into one, BBC insiders fear quality will suffer as reporters become overstretched."


The BBC's quality has been suffering for years. In the case of the BBC, less is much better.

drop in violence in Iraq is becoming hard to dispute

An inconvient truth.

"A month later, there isn't much room for such debate, at least about the latest figures. In September, Iraqi civilian deaths were down 52 percent from August and 77 percent from September 2006, according to the Web site icasualties.org. The Iraqi Health Ministry and the Associated Press reported similar results. U.S. soldiers killed in action numbered 43 -- down 43 percent from August and 64 percent from May, which had the highest monthly figure so far this year. The American combat death total was the lowest since July 2006 and was one of the five lowest monthly counts since the insurgency in Iraq took off in April 2004.

During the first 12 days of October the death rates of Iraqis and Americans fell still further. So far during the Muslim month of Ramadan, which began Sept. 13 and ends this weekend, 36 U.S. soldiers have been reported as killed in hostile actions. That is remarkable given that the surge has deployed more American troops in more dangerous places and that in the past al-Qaeda has staged major offensives during Ramadan. Last year, at least 97 American troops died in combat during Ramadan. Al-Qaeda tried to step up attacks this year, U.S. commanders say -- so far, with stunningly little success."

Iraq: Al Qaeda’s Quagmire

You won't see this on the BBC.

UK - How the BBC is a danger to the public

This BBC report is seemingly designed to make it look like innocent youth are caught up in what the BBC must think are draconian anti terror laws.

"The 17-year-old, who was arrested in the Dewsbury area of West Yorkshire on Monday, was given bail after a hearing at Westminster Magistrates' Court.

It is alleged he had a copy of the "Anarchists' Cookbook", containing instructions on how to make home-made explosives.

His next court hearing has been set for 25 October.

The teenager faces two charges under the Terrorism Act 2000.

The first charge relates to the possession of material for terrorist purposes in October last year.

The second relates to the collection or possession of information useful in the preparation of an act of terrorism."


So, you're thinking, wow he was arrested for having a book? Notice how the BBC intentionally leave out what the "material for terrorist purposes" was and any details on the boys background? Here's why.

"A court in London was told two weeks ago that the schoolboy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is alleged to have had chemicals used for making bombs under his bed. He is accused of plotting to make bombs following a trip to Pakistan and to have had a copy of the Anarchists Cookbook on his computer.

During an anti-terror raid on his home about 500g of potassium nitrate was allegedly found under his bed in the room he shared with his younger brother. Potassium nitrate is a critical oxidising component of gunpowder.

Prosecutors said the Anarchists Cookbook included 17 references to potassium nitrate in its "Improvised Explosives" section which contained "clear instructions on how to make explosives".

He too is charged with possess-ion of material for terrorism purposes and with collection or possession of information useful in the preparation of an act of terrorism. The case was adjourned."


Even this report leaves out the boys religion and we are left to infer that from his trip to Pakistan. But there is no doubt that the BBC's report is designed to undermine current anti terror laws; the inference is that now they are locking up kids for possessing books. The BBC have been aiding terrorists for years.

Analysis: It's hard to defend the BBC

It's impossible and not because of this but because of this.

The Sun reports.

"POLICE were called in to probe an al-Qaeda outburst by a doctor during a Muslim prayer meeting at an NHS hospital.

But he is still in his £70,000-a-year job with Rotherham Doncaster "

UK - Less translation, more English

That's what the government says local communities should do.

"The change in approach is to be accompanied by guidance to local authorities that they should only spend money on translating documents into foreign languages where necessary, and put a much greater emphasis on teaching English."


Seems all are not getting the message though.

"The first-ever citizens' day, in Southwark, south London, included opportunities to try out pie and mash and featured banners reading I Love Peckham in 48 languages."


Oops.

UK - Muslim medical students get picky

Then boot them from the course.

"Some Muslim medical students are refusing to attend lectures or answer exam questions on alcohol-related or sexually transmitted diseases because they claim it offends their religious beliefs.

Some trainee doctors say learning to treat the diseases conflicts with their faith, which states that Muslims should not drink alcohol and rejects sexual promiscuity.

A small number of Muslim medical students have even refused to treat patients of the opposite sex. One male student was prepared to fail his final exams rather than carry out a basic examination of a female patient."


Even Muslim leaders in the UK don't support them.

"Both the Muslim Council of Britain and Muslim Doctors and Dentist Association said they were aware of students opting out but did not support them.

Dr Abdul Majid Katme, of the Islamic Medical Association, said: “To learn about alcohol, to learn about sexually transmitted disease, to learn about abortion, it gives us more evidence to campaign against it. There is a difference between learning and practising.

“It is obligatory for Muslim doctors and students to learn about everything. The prophet said, ‘Learn about witchcraft, but don’t practise it’.”
