TARIQ RAMADAN: WHAT THE WEST CAN LEARN FROM ISLAM
In late September, I finally received a response to the question I had been asking the Bush administration for more than two years: Why was my work visa revoked in late July 2004, just days before I was to take up a position as a professor of Islamic studies and the Henry Luce chair of religion, conflict, and peace building at the University of Notre Dame? Initially neither I nor the university was told why; officials only made a vague reference to a provision of the U.S. Patriot Act that allows the government to exclude foreign citizens who have “endorsed or espoused terrorism.” Though the U.S. Department of Homeland Security eventually cleared me of all charges of links with terrorist groups, today it points to another reason to keep me out of the country: donations I made totaling approximately $900 to a Swiss Palestinian-support group that is now on the American blacklist. A letter I received from the American Embassy in Switzerland, where I hold citizenship, asserts that I “should reasonably have known” that the group had ties with Hamas.
Marxism and Islamophobia
Bawer’s views are highly critical of radical, fundamentalist Islam, but there seems to be some blurring of the distinction between Islam as a religion in general and those who are fundamentalists. There is also a spill over involving immigrants to Europe from Islamic countries. Bawer rejects the characterization of “racism” because he says he is actually criticizing religious views. This is a red herring as he also attacks people who are ethnically distinct from Europeans (many in the Muslim community), advocates mass deportations, and appears sympathetic to neo-Nazi fringe political parties.
Here is what he says about his critics: “One of the most disgraceful developments of our time is that many Western authors and intellectuals who pride themselves on being liberals have effectively aligned themselves with an outrageously illiberal movement that rejects equal rights for women, that believes that gays and Jews should be executed, that supports the coldblooded murder of one’s own children in the name of honor, etc., etc.”
9/11 : The Secret Service at Booker Elementary: The Dog That Did Not Bark
With a supposedly unknown number of planes flying across the nation and crashing into buildings …
With the President’s presence at Booker Elementary announced in the media three days in advance…
With an airport just 4 miles away…
How did the Secret Service KNOW Bush was not a target on 9-11?
An explosion of disbelief – fresh doubts over 9/11
A new film alleges the U.S. staged the 9/11 disaster to justify the Iraq war
The official story of what happened on 9/11 never fails to shock. Four American airliners are hijacked by Osama Bin Laden’s terrorists in an attack on the heart of the Western world on September 11, 2001.
Nearly 3,000 ordinary, decent Americans die in the attacks, provoking the U.S. President George W. Bush to mount a global war on terror, which leads to the invasion of Iraq, with Britain in tow.
Or that’s how the official story goes.
Yet today, more than five years on, this accepted version of what happened on 9/11 is being challenged by a 90-minute internet movie made for £1,500 on a cheap laptop by three young American men. The film is so popular that up to 100 million viewers have watched what is being dubbed the first internet blockbuster.
Arabs Fear the U.S. and Israel, Not Iran
Less than one in four Arabs believe Iran should be pressured to halt its nuclear programme, while 61 percent, including majorities in all six countries, said Tehran had the right to pursue it even if, as most believe, the programme is designed to develop nuclear weapons.
Iraq’s Death Toll is Far Worse Than Our Leaders Admit
The US and Britain have triggered an episode more deadly than the Rwandan genocide.

Web of Deceit : Saddam Hussein – The Trial You’ll Never See

The horrifying truth is the extent to which we in the west have been complicit.
Surge Toward the Truth.

This is War – Video 7 Minutes
- Warning – This video should only be viewed by mature audience, “Do it in the name of God”
For America’s Sake – 5 Minute Video
The conservative movement stands intellectually and morally bankrupt while Democrats talk about a “new direction” without convincing us they know the difference between a weather vane and a compass. The right story will set our course for a generation to come.
Before The Invasion, There Was Feith
The most glaring distortion was Feith’s indefensible reliance on a shaky, discredited report from a Czech intelligence agent that said 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta had a meeting with a top Iraqi diplomat in Prague five months before Sept. 11, 2001.
Helicopter in Iraq hit by sophisticated weapon

In northern Iraq, another war looms
While the world focuses on Baghdad’s security, a series of bombings here may be the long-feared start of a second deadly war in Iraq this one between Kurds and Arabs, both with claims on a territory atop one of the world’s largest oil reserves.
A Trillion Dollar Military Budget?
The president has sent Congress a proposed federal budget for fiscal year 2008 that would spend $967 billion on current military activities and past wars. That figure represents 44% of the federal funds budget and is $100 billion higher than the amount of money allocated for this year.
Al-Zawahri says Bush “Alcoholic Who Gambled on Iraq’
“Bush suffers from an addictive personality, and was an alcoholic. I don’t know his present condition … but the one who examines his personality finds that he is addicted to two other faults lying and gambling,” al-Zawahri said in the audiotape.
Russian Bear Growls At U.S. Hypocrisy
The Arab world has welcomed President Putin’s Middle East visit to Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Jordan .Arab experts feel that the primary aim is to “send a message” to the US that Moscow has a key role to play in this vital region and that it is high time for Washington to give up its policies of domination and destruction.
Abusing The Profession

APARTHEID BEYOND THE GRAVE
Despite the denials by Israel’s main airline company, El Al, the fact remains that they allegedly refused to fly the body of a recently deceased Muslim woman on one of their flights to Israel.
Why is it assumed that Muslims have no feelings? Why is it assumed that Muslims are bad parents? Why is it assumed that Muslims are terrorists? And now the newest question, why is it assumed that Muslims do not mourn deceased loved ones?

THE “IRANIAN” 81MM MORTAR WEB PAGE IS A FAKE!
This web page is being waved around to “prove” that Iran does make 81mm mortar rounds like the one the US Government is trying to use to justify an invasion of Iran.
Take a good look at the soldiers and weapons at the very top of the page. They look Iranian to you? And why does an Iranian company put together a web page where their own country is obscured from view on that world map?
Check the spelling on the tabs. “Miscellancous”? “Caliber” uses the American spelling, rather than “Calibre.” And Tehran is spelled “Tahran” on the contact page. This web page was assembled in a rush.
Take a look at the page source in your browser. The images and directories on the server are all in ENGLISH.
Why is the Iranian Ammunition Industries Group’s webpage in English?
Now for what possible reason would an Iranian company have a website in English but not in their native language, nor in the language of the majority of their neighbors? It makes no sense!
Is the website at http://www.iramig.ir/Products/Mortar%20Bombs.htm, which purports to prove Iran does make 811mm Mortar rounds, a fake intended to recover from a major propaganda goof?
BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW
