Hate Crime : The sick mindset that breeds Islamophobia
From Pope’s anti-Islam comments to Church signs saying, “You must remember, Islam is the enemy,” and “The Koran needs to be flushed,” a Church in west Windsor, Canada, came out in its true colors with publicly promoting anti-Islam hatred. On January 11, 2007, Campbell Baptist Church organized a lecture of a purported former Muslim terrorist, Zachariah Anani, to warn the public that Islam is a religion of war being brought to Canadian soil.
MP SEEKS PROBE OF Zachariah ‘TERRORIST’ Anani LECTURER
Immigration officials must investigate how professed former terrorist Zachariah Anani got into the country and obtained Canadian citizenship, says Windsor West MP Brian Masse.
“Mr. Anani claims he was a terrorist. That’s his background. He also became a Canadian citizen, so we’ll be investigating to find out whether or not that information was provided at the time,” Masse said following a news
conference Saturday by members of Windsor’s Muslim community in response to Anani’s anti-Islamic lecture series at Campbell Baptist Church.
Anani angered local Muslims when he used passages from the Qur’an during his first lecture Jan. 11 to support his view that Islam preaches violence.

Misreading The Enemy
The president cannot seem to let go of his fixation on Al-Qaida, a minor actor in Iraq, and his determination to confront Iran and Syria. He still assumes that the insurgents are outsiders to their neighborhoods and that U.S. troops can chase away the miscreants and keep them out, acting as a sort of neighborhood watch in khaki. In fact, Iraq’s Sunni Arab elite is playing the spoiler, and until a deal is negotiated with its members, no one will be allowed to enjoy the new Iraq.
Bush the Empire Slayer
Yeats bemoaned an era when the best lacked all conviction, while the worst were full of passionate intensity. Today, Kristol blusters and hectors, Cheney scolds and forebodes, Bush struts and smirks. Meanwhile, the giant, timid chorus listens politely to the deafening silence of the outragedand the mad march of war goes on.
Elite Propaganda : The Myth of the Liberal Media
Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky demolish one of the central tenets of our political culture, the idea of the “liberal media.” Instead, utilizing a systematic model based on massive empirical research, they reveal the manner in which the news media are so subordinated to corporate and conservative interests that their function can only be described as that of “elite propaganda.”

U.N. Officials Question Iraq’s “USA Puppet Govt” Rough Justice
The U.S.-backed government in Baghdad is facing harsh criticism from the international community for ignoring calls to adopt a policy of restraint with regard to carrying out death sentences against the members of Iraq’s former ruling party. Reacting to the hanging of Saddam Hussein’s two close aides Monday, senior U.N. officials and human rights organisations warned that the government must end its policy of executions, which they see as serious violation of international human rights standards. “Those responsible for serious human rights violations must be brought to justice,” said Louise Arbour, the top U.N. official for human rights. “But to be credible and durable, the fight against impunity must be based on respect for international human rights standards.”..
Good Morning, Baghdad! Two Hangings, One Decapitation Before Breakfast
Public barbarity reached yet another new low this morning — even for occupied Iraq — when two of Saddam Hussein’s former aides were hanged before dawn in Baghdad, one of them losing his head in the process. Like John Kerry’s dumb joke, the American media have already decided for us — the hanging was “botched (…) but if you keep reading you can see that the “Arab street” doesn’t buy the official version at all. from Morocco to Yemen, ordinary Arabs cast doubt on the official explanation. Some recalled the chaotic and abusive treatment of Saddam Hussein when he was hanged on December 30. Zaid al-Boudani, a shopkeeper in the Yemeni capital Sanaa, said: “I am very sad today, as many other Muslim Arabs are. This execution is part of the revenge campaign going on in Iraq. The way his head was ripped off shows hatred and revenge.” Issam Ghazzawi, a Jordanian lawyer who saw Barzan on Friday, said he was convinced the decapitation was deliberate. “His head was cut off after he was hanged to mutilate his body in [...] a barbaric act of revenge that is against any human values and is vigilante justice by a group of thugs,” he said. Qassim Abdul-Zahra of the Associated Press, reporting from Baghdad via the Toronto Star, says reaction inside the occupied country is equally skeptical…

Anger at Saddam’s half-brother’s beheading
Iraqi Shiites, oppressed by Saddam Hussein, welcomed the hanging of two of his aides on Monday though some also joined Sunni Arabs in expressing shock that his half-brother’s head was ripped off by the noose.
Furore over Execution Continues Unabated
Expressions of outrage over the conduct of the trial and the manner of Saddam Hussein’s rushed, chaotic execution are continuing unabated here as lawyers and human rights groups voice together their open criticism — although some are still cautiously asking the media to withhold their names from publication. Iraqi and international legal experts appear in agreement that the special court which sentenced the former Iraqi leader to the gallows was illegally set up and failed to meet international recognised standards. They recalled that former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan said on Sep. 16, 2004 that the invasion and occupation of Iraq violated the UN Charter. This made the setting up of the so-called special Iraqi High Tribunal to try Saddam illegal (…) “The verdict was pre-judged by the Bush administration and its Iraqi allies. The court was a disgusting comedy,” a senior member of the Iraqi Lawyers’ Union told IPS on condition of anonymity…
New Congress Can Save Lives, or Money
The new Congress, led in the House by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, is about to make its first decision regarding how America’s money should be spent – a decision that leaves millions of lives hanging in the balance. Congress’s choice to bypass 2007 appropriations legislation and extend fiscal 2006 funding levels into the new year will mean, in effect, cuts of almost $1billion in funding for programs to combat AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

A Basic History of Zionism and its Relation to Judaism
For many years Zionism remained a minority movement of mainly Eastern European Jews, excluding the whole religious establishment, most central and western European Jews and, last but not least, all non-European Jews who, unbeknown to Herzl and his co-founders, form the majority of us.
Christians and Zion
Christian Zionism is the direct product of this unusual and recent Western form of Protestant theology. Found primarily in North America and England, it is now exported around the globe via satellite television, the internet, best-selling novels such as the Left Behind series, films and a new breed of missionaries.
