What was the crime of this Palestinian baby?
As-salaamu ‘Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah, Hope you are in the best of health and Imaan (faith), Ameen.
I just wanted to share a short story a brother told at the Interpal event. It’s a really horrbile story, but sadly it is the norm in Palestine.
A husband was rushing his wife to the hospital in his car as she laid there in extreme labour pains. They then were stopped by israeli soldiers when they got to one of those road stops (they’re all over Palestinian roads). The soldiers just laughed at her and they knew that she needed to be at the hospital immediately. They then checked them (i think for passes etc) and they purposely took their time.
The Restrictions Remain: Life Under Prohibition in Palestine
All the promises to relax restrictions in the West Bank have obscured the true picture. A few roadblocks have been removed, but the following prohibitions have remained in place.

Dr. Sami Al-Arian Begins Hunger Strike
Never Convicted, Muslim Professor Lingers in Prison and Harassed by the Government
WASHINGTON, DC – Jan. 23, 2007 (MASNET) Yesterday, Dr. Sami Al-Arian began a hunger strike to protest continued government harassment. Earlier, Dr. Al-Arian appeared before a new grand jury in Alexandria, Virginia, where he was subpoenaed by a federal prosecutor to testify a second time in the same case. After Dr. Al-Arian expressed his ethical stance against testifying, a judge in the Eastern District of Virginia held him in civil contempt, once again prolonging his suffering and imprisonment by up to 18 months. Dr. Al-Arian’s originally scheduled release date is April 13.

Arar: America’s deep shame
Let’s be clear about this: Maher Arar — victim of an American “midnight rendition” to Syria for imprisonment and torture — is an innocent man.
Not just in law, although the presumption of innocence would be enough to make that true. Arar is innocent because at least three national security agencies — the RCMP, CSIS and the CIA — have not produced one scintilla of evidence against him despite pressure on them to do so.
Bush Continues to Unite the World… Against Him
Despite two years of a concentrated effort by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and her public diplomacy major-domo Karen Hughes to boost Washington’s global image, more people around the world have an unfavorable opinion of U.S. policies than at any time in recent memory, according to a new BBC poll released Monday.
Views on U.S. Drop Sharply In Worldwide Opinion Poll
Global opinion of U.S. foreign policy has sharply deteriorated in the past two years, according to a BBC poll released on the eve of President Bush’s annual State of the Union address.
Gangsters for Capitalism
Although benign U.S. intentions are an article of faith among many Americans, theft, murder and oppression have always been central to U.S. policies and practices in the non-white world. George Bush’s crusade for ‘democracy’ is yet another chapter in the shameful saga.
“The U.S. has routinely destroyed democracy throughout the globe while its leaders spout words about spreading democracy.”

War Criminal : US occupation turns 3.7 million Iraqis into refugees
The United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) reported this month that the US invasion and occupation of Iraq has forced one out of every eight Iraqis to flee their homes-more than 3.7 million people. The agency described the refugee crisis caused by the Iraq war as the worst in the Middle East since the ethnic cleansing that accompanied the creation of Israel in 1948. The Zionist military and paramilitary death squads drove an estimated 711,000 Palestinian Arabs from their land.
Iraq Residents: Baqouba is deadly ghost city
Many residents of Baqouba say they live hunkered down in cold, dark houses afraid to go out, that the once mixed Shiite-Sunni neighborhoods are riven by sectarian cleansing, that the police force has virtually collapsed, and that longtime rituals – like the annual orange festival – have become unthinkable.
How We Can End the Occupation of Iraq
President George Bush deflects criticism of his war plans by claiming that his critics have no plans of their own. Vice President Dick Cheney, meanwhile, asserts that matters of war must be left in the hands of the President (presumably no matter how brilliant your alternative plan).
Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D., Ohio) has had an exit plan on his website for over three years. Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey (D., Calif.) has held several hearings discussing exit plans over the past year and a half. Peace activists, including Tom Hayden, have published and promoted a variety of exit plans over the past couple of years, and have even gone so far as to meet and discuss them with members of the Iraqi Parliament.
Zawahiri challenges Bush to send the ‘entire army’ to Iraq
Al-Qaida’s deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahri has mocked President George Bush’s plan to send 21,000 more troops to Iraq, challenging him in a new videotape to send “the entire army” and vowing insurgents will defeat them.
The Washington-based Site Institute said it had intercepted the video, which had not yet been posted on Islamic militant websites, where messages of that type are usually posted.

Dictatorship : U.S. drafts Holocaust denial resolution
To be followed by the “9-11 denial resolution” which will punish everyone who does not accept the official story of 9-11, and the “Bush is a nice guy denial resolution” which will jail those who do not like the President, leaving the entire country to be supported by just 47 people.
Dictatorship : The Pentagon vs. Press Freedom
We often hear that the Pentagon exists to defend our freedoms. But the Pentagon is moving against press freedom.
Not long ago, journalist Sarah Olson received a subpoena to testify next month in the court-martial of US Army Lt. Ehren Watada, who now faces prosecution for speaking against the Iraq War and refusing to participate in it. Apparently, the commanders at the Pentagon are so eager to punish Watada that they’ve decided to go after reporters who have informed the public about his statements.
Dictatorship Gonzales: ‘There Is No Express Grant of Habeas Corpus In The Constitution’
Yesterday, during Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales claimed there is no express right to habeas corpus in the U.S. Constitution. Gonzales was debating Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA) about whether the Supreme Court’s ruling on Guantanamo detainees last year cited the constitutional right to habeas corpus. Gonzales claimed the Court did not cite such a right, then added, “There is no express grant of habeas in the Constitution.”
Specter pushed back. “Wait a minute. The constitution says you can’t take it away, except in the case of rebellion or invasion. Doesn’t that mean you have the right of habeas corpus, unless there is an invasion or rebellion?” Specter told Gonzales, “You may be treading on your interdiction and violating common sense, Mr. Attorney General.”
No Way In – No Way Out
Americans who cherish freedom would do well to stop stumbling around in the trees and forests of the illegal immigration debate and see that the Bush administration is well on its way to closing the borders of the entire nation, not only to people trying to get in, but to citizens trying to get out.
Stop the Jewish barbarians in Hebron
It is unthinkable that the memory of Auschwitz should serve as a pretext to ignore the fact that living here among us are Jews that behave toward Palestinians exactly the way that German, Hungarian, Polish and other anti-Semites behaved toward Jews.
Hillary Clinton and the Israel Lobby
AIPAC’s hypocrisy is nauseating. The Goliath lobbying organization wants Iran to cease to procure nukes while the crimes of Israel continue to be ignored. So who is propping up AIPAC’s hypocritical position? None other than Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York.
As one of the top Democratic recipients of pro-Israel funds for the 2006 election cycle, pocketing over $83,000, Clinton now has Iran in her cross hairs.
It is high time to stop the madness of electing people to high office who do not put America first, and are simply acquisitions of various elements which don’t really care if this Republic lives or dies.
As long as US foreign policy continues to be driven by these “acquisitions”, we can expect no real domestic prosperity here at home, nor greater peace in the world at large.

Travel to U.S. off 17 pct since 9/11
A 17 percent drop in overseas travelers to the United States since the September 11 attacks has cost the country more than $15 billion in lost taxes and nearly 200,000 jobs, a study showed on Tuesday.
Since the September 11 attacks, the United States has tightened security measures and toughened its visa and entry requirements. As a result, the country was ranked as the world’s most unfriendly to visitors in a survey conducted last year of travelers from 16 nations.
For states heavily dependent on tourism, this is a problem.
Hours before State of Union, Bush approval drops to low of 28 percent
On the day of his State of the Union speech, President Bush’s approval rating has dropped to a new low of twenty-eight percent, and sixty-four percent “disapprove of the way he’s handling his job,” according to CBS News.
They really ought to stop doing these polls inside defense factories. Meanwhile, here is a sneak-preview of Bush’s State of the Union Speech
