Black friend former television news reporter defends shooter of Florida teen

Black friend former television news reporter defends shooter of Florida teen.(AlArabiya).George Zimmerman cried for days in remorse after shooting dead a black Florida teenager, a family friend of Zimmerman said on Sunday, offering a sympathetic portrayal of the man at the focal point of a national uproar.
Zimmerman, 28, a white Hispanic, shot Trayvon Martin, 17, in what he said was self-defense during an altercation in the gated community Zimmerman was watching on Feb. 26 in Sanford, Florida. After barely going noticed for weeks, the case has since galvanized the country and renewed a national discussion about race.
“He couldn’t stop crying. He’s a caring human being,” Joe Oliver, 53, a former television news reporter and anchor in Orlando who has known Zimmerman for several years, told Reuters in a telephone interview.“I mean, he took a man’s life and he has no idea what to do about it. He’s extremely remorseful about it,” Oliver said, relating stories told to him by Zimmerman’s mother-in-law, a close friend of Oliver’s wife.
Oliver’s account counters the withering criticism Zimmerman has sustained from demonstrators across the country who have demanded his arrest and accused him of racial bias in targeting Martin. Celebrities have taken up the cause of justice for Trayvon, and President Barack Obama said “all of us have to do some soul-searching” as a result of the tragedy.“I’m a black male and all that I know is that George has never given me any reason whatsoever to believe he has anything against people of color,” Oliver said.
Sanford police did not arrest Zimmerman, saying the evidence could not disprove his account of self-defense, though the case is under review by a state special prosecutor and the U.S. Justice Department.
Zimmerman dropped out of public view shortly after the shooting and his whereabouts were unknown. The New Black Panther Party, an African American organization taking its name from the radical group of the 1960s, has placed a $10,000 bounty on Zimmerman.
“All these people who are threatening George, what makes them any better than the person they think he is?” Oliver said. “You’ve got all these people wanting to lynch the man and they don’t know the whole story. There are huge gaps that are being filled in and interpreted without evidence.”
Oliver tried to reach Zimmerman after the shooting but he had not spoken with him until Saturday in a conversation arranged by Zimmerman’s lawyer.
As a black man, he said he understands how minorities are often unfairly treated, but he believed Zimmerman was simply doing his job by growing suspicious over an unfamiliar person walking through a neighborhood that had suffered some break-ins. Martin lived in Miami but was with his father on a visit to his father’s fiancee’s home inside the gated community.
“I understand how they’re able to leap to the conclusion. You have a dead teenager. This guy is white so it must be a hate crime. There’s going to be evidence to come out that basically will justify George’s concern,” Oliver said.
He (Zimmerman) confirmed for me that he was not the aggressor. But I did not go into details as to how it got to that aggressive point,” Oliver said.
At one point Oliver became choked up with emotion talking about his friend but said he was coming forward freely even though it may expose him to reprisals.“I just have to do what’s right, not just for my friend but for everyone involved,” Oliver said. “His mother in law lost her job for this. He’s in hiding. His mother in law can’t see her own daughter because she fears for their lives.”Hmmmm.......Compare this to a President who keeps silent while they put a bounty on a mans head!Read the full story here.

Updated.With this post who questions the lifestyle of Trayvon Martin, also i've noticed on Trayvon Martin's  facebook page one of his ‘friends’ has as last name ‘Shabbazz’ it couldn’t be true that this guy, who’s tweets are private is related to Malik Shabazz?Read the full 'story here'.

ISRAEL - ‘A free people in our land’

ISRAEL - ‘A free people in our land’.(JPost).By Ilana Brown."A free people in our land” – Every word of that line of Hatikvah, Israel’s national anthem, brings to mind a different aspect of what it means to be a Zionist in today’s complicated world.

A people: through all of our differences we are still a single nation.

Free: A principle which is protected by living in a modern, democratic state.

In our land: Connected to the land of Israel by 5,000 years of history. These words are not empty rhetoric.

They are not mumbled phrases of the past that lose their meaning with constant repetition.
These words are the guiding principle for a modern, sovereign, Jewish and democratic state.
Recently the AIPAC conference in the US featured speeches from President Barack Obama, all the Republican candidates and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, all of whom focused on the currently hot topic – a nuclear Iran. Through all the lovely sentiments, warm words, iron-clad promises and applause, the subtext remains clear: the US, Israel’s best friend in the world, will stand beside Israel with whom it shares the goal of a non-nuclear Iran, and Israel should not worry because the US will always be there for her.

Prime Minister Netanyahu went to the US and affirmed that Israel will do what it needs to do for its own security, but President Obama counseled patience.
When Israel was created in 1948, it was founded on the principle that a homeland be created for the Jewish people. The Declaration of Independence states: “This right is the natural right of the Jewish people to be masters of their own fate, like all other nations, in their own sovereign State.”

ISRAEL IS a sovereign nation – a nation independent of the rule of another nation. In simple terms this means that the citizens of Israel will elect representatives in the government to serve them and the interests of the state. This responsibility includes defense of the country and defense of its citizens. Sometime this means acting alone; sometimes this means acting in cooperation with other countries.

But the question remains: Would a sovereign nation put its defense in the hands of another government?We can also look to the example of the 1991 Gulf War. Iraq was not threatening Israel directly, but the US requested that Israel stand aside while US troops fought the war in Iraq. Israel was also asked not to retaliate, even if attacked. And when the Scuds flew from Iraq and landed in Tel Aviv, Israel stood still at the request of the US.

One could argue that today’s world is different and we live in a smaller, global community which requires a more nuanced relationship with our friends and allies. But Israel cannot risk her security for the sake of friendship. Where is the line between honoring an alliance and protecting the citizens of Israel? When Israel’s founding fathers wrote that they wanted to be a nation like any other nation, they meant that Israel would stand among other nations and be equal to them.Israel is not a vassal state, not a puppet regime, not a state in name alone.

The Zionist dream is to be a free people in our land. With this freedom comes responsibility.Israel and Israel alone is responsible for the safety of its citizens. Whether this means bombing Iran or being patient while economic sanctions take their time to work remains to be seen. However, Israel must act in her own best interest, as any other sovereign nation in the world would do.Hmmmm......"Pour les vaincre, messieurs, il nous faut de l'audace, encore de l'audace, et toujours de l'audace et la Patrie sera sauvée!" ~ Danton.Read the full story here.

South Sudan will open embassy in Jerusalem, the Holy city.

South Sudan will open embassy in Jerusalem in Jerusalem, the Holy city.(BM).CAIRO: South Sudan and Israel discussed bilateral cooperation and diplomatic relations.South Sudan said it will establish an embassy in Jerusalem, the Holy city, rather than the political capital, Tel Aviv, following the recent visit of the South Sudanese president, Salva Kiir.
On Friday the visiting Israeli ambassador, Dan Shaham, met with the vice president of South Sudan, Riek Machar, and discussed issues pertaining to the bilateral cooperation between the two states.
The issues included the support the Israeli government will provide to the new state as well as the status of some 1,500 South Sudanese currently residing in Israel.
Shaham gave assurances that South Sudanese refugees in Israel will be trained in various skills so they can contribute to the young nation upon repatriation.Machar stressed the importance of establishing a Hebrew language school in the South Sudan’s capital, Juba.They also discussed the plans for a pilgrimage to the Holy Land by South Sudanese Christian leaders.
The Vice President and the Israeli diplomat also discussed the ongoing disarmament of civil populations in Jonglei state. They also touched on the situation in the Middle East, particularly with the current violent events in Syria.With the independence of the South Sudan in July 2011, Israel announced on 31 January that South Sudanese are no longer considered refugees and have to leave the Jewish state before the first of April of face forced deportation.The UN refugee agency, HCR, said only some 60 South Sudanese agreed to return voluntarily to their new nation before April 1. The Israeli Interior ministry recently said no South Sudanese have appealed the decision to deport them or applied for refugee status since January.Following its decision to repatriate South Sudanese, the Israeli authorities agreed, upon the request of the HCR, to give them the possibility to petition to stay in Israel. The official statics estimate that there are some 3000 South Sudanese in Israel.
South Sudan’s relations with Israel are frequently viewed with intense suspicion in the Egyptian press, cafés and bars.And this is because Egyptians view the Nile’s water sources, one of which flows through South Sudan, called the White Nile, as a matter of national security.
Egyptians fear that a “Zionist plot” is behind South Sudan’s diplomatic relations with Israel, and that there is a plan to shut off the water flow to Egypt.To what end this fanciful consipracy theory would possibly benefit anyone involved, has never been elaborated.Hmmmm.......Now here's a thought...."shut off the water flow to Egypt".Read the full story here.

"Anti - Semitism alive and flourishing" Southern France - More than 30 Jewish graves desecrated.

"Anti - Semitism alive and flourishing" Southern France - More than 30 Jewish graves desecrated.(YNet). More than 30 Jewish graves were desecrated in the city of Nice in southern France on the Sabbath, less than a week after a deadly attack on children at a Jewish school in Toulouse. Memorial candles were ripped off the graves, as were Stars of David.Only Jewish tombs were targeted.
Guards at the cemetery said that most of the damage was done on Friday night, but that some damage had been noticed as early as Wednesday. It was not immediately clear if the incident was connected to the Toulouse attack.France’s Interior Ministry released a statement condemning the vandalism. “The Interior Ministry denounces desecration of graves and stresses the government’s commitment to battle against all forms of anti-Semitism,” the statement said.The High Council of Muslims in Southern France condemned the incident as well.Read the full story here.

CIA Counterterrorism Chief Is a Convert to Islam.

CIA Counterterrorism Chief Is a Convert to Islam.(WP).Is it wise to put a Muslim in charge of efforts to stop Muslim terrorists?This is a country where a Muslim can become a CIA chief. How intolerant and bigoted can we be?

WASHINGTON POST--For every cloud of smoke that follows a CIA drone strike in Pakistan, dozens of smaller plumes can be traced to a gaunt figure standing in a courtyard near the center of the agency’s Langley campus in Virginia.

The man with the nicotine habit is in his late 50s, with stubble on his face and the dark-suited wardrobe of an undertaker. As chief of the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center for the past six years, he has functioned in a funereal capacity for al-Qaeda.

Roger, which is the first name of his cover identity, may be the most consequential but least visible national security official in Washington — the principal architect of the CIA’s drone campaign and the leader of the hunt for Osama bin Laden. In many ways, he has also been the driving force of the Obama administration’s embrace of targeted killing as a centerpiece of its counterterrorism efforts.
Colleagues describe Roger as a collection of contradictions. A chain-smoker who spends countless hours on a treadmill. Notoriously surly yet able to win over enough support from subordinates and bosses to hold on to his job. He presides over a campaign that has killed thousands of Islamist militants and angered millions of Muslims, but he is himself a convert to Islam. Hmmmm..........Obama: "We will hold sacred the beliefs held sacred by others."And which form of Islam is the "Right one"?And how about our beliefs?Read the full story here.

IDF gears up for Global March to Jerusalem.

IDF gears up for Global March to Jerusalem.(YNet).The IDF is gearing up to a possible storming of Israeli borders as part of the Global March to Jerusalem set for Friday, March 30. Israel has issued a clear warning to Arab states and the Palestinian Authority against allowing the march.
Soldiers deployed along Israel's borders have been instructed to increase their level of alert. IDF preparations are based on the "Summer Seeds" operation which was meant to tackle any flare-up following last year's Palestinian statehood bid. Israel feared major Arab and Palestinian riots at the time.The troops will have at their disposal the crowd-dispersal means purchased to handle the UN bid. Several battalions have also been secured as auxiliary forces if a need for them arises.
Since last year's violent Nakba Day and Naksa Day events, the IDF's Engineering Corps has performed upgrades along Israel's border with Syria. The old fence has been replaced and potholes have been dug along the border.
The forces will be instructed to prevent any violation of Israeli sovereignty with minimum harm to protesters, should they approach the border. Security officials have coordinated efforts with the Palestinian security forces in order to prevent any spillage into Israel.
Over the weekend, the London-based al-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper reported that Israel sent a warning to the governments of Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Hamas in Gaza and the Palestinian Authority following the Nakba and Naksa day events. Israel demanded that they not to allow marches on its borders which could escalate the situation in the region.
The Jordanian government spokesman said in response that "Jordan has not received any official message from Israel on the prevention of the Global March to Jerusalem" adding that the government cannot prevent people from expressing demands so long as they are conveyed in an non-violent matter.
Jordan's Muslim Brotherhood movement stressed that the march will not be violent and that its men will not attempt to cross the borders. Over the weekend, Global March participants from Asia held a demonstration outside the Israeli embassy in Turkey demanding to "free Palestine from the Israeli occupation." An Iranian artist said that the Palestinian issue is the most important issue for mankind.
A Turkish activist said that "we are reminded of what the Ayatollah Khamenei said; that were every Muslim to throw a bucket of water at the Israeli entity, it would sink." The activist called on all Muslims to follow Khamenei's path in order to free Palestine.
Arab media have been reporting that the first group from the Asian convoy arrived in Damascus on Saturday in order to take part in the protest.
Activists involved with the organization of the march said that another group will arrive in Syria via land from 15 Asian countries. It was further reported that a marches will begin in Syria in the next few days.
Meanwhile, Israel's Higher Arab Monitoring Committee is planning on holding the annual Land Day events this weekend. Organizers have decided that the Palestinian flag will be the only flag to be flown and it will be flown at all events.
They have decided that this year's events which will take place on Friday will be commemorated under the heading "Save the lands and prevent Judaization of Jerusalem." Thousands are set to take part in the main parade in Dir Hana in the lower Galilee.Monitoring Committee chairman Muhammad Zidan told Ynet that "the subject of lands was very sensitive and important and we must continue in our struggle against land expropriation in the sector.
"Land Day reminds us of the martyrs who have fallen and are deserved to be remembered." Zidan added: "We have demanded that the police not enter Arab towns on Land Day so that order will be maintained without rioting."
A protest march is set to set out from the Jaffa port on Saturday and according to organizers, some 6,000 people are expected to take part. Northern District Police Spokesman Chief.Read the full story here.

Pakistani Taliban spokesman militants will ``publicly slaughter'' drivers ferrying NATO supplies.

Pakistani Taliban spokesman militants will ``publicly slaughter'' drivers ferrying NATO supplies.(Emirates24/7).The Taliban on Sunday threatened to attack Pakistani lawmakers and their families if they support allowing NATO to resume shipping supplies through the country to troops in neighboring Afghanistan.Pakistan closed its Afghan border crossings to NATO in November in retaliation for American airstrikes that accidentally killed 24 Pakistani soldiers. Pakistan's parliament is scheduled to begin debate Monday on a revised relationship with the U.S. that could lead to the border being reopened.
Pakistani Taliban spokesman Ahsanullah Ahsan accused Pakistani officials of acting like slaves for the U.S. and said allowing NATO supplies to resume would be ``shameful and unacceptable.''
``These parliamentarians must know that in such case, none of them will be safe in their homes,'' Ahsan told The Associated Press. ``We will start attacking all the parliamentarians and their families.''Ahsan also said militants would ``publicly slaughter'' drivers ferrying NATO supplies.
The U.S. is eager to get the supplies moving again because it has had to spend much more money shipping goods by an alternative route that runs through Central Asia.
The supply line through Pakistan will also be key to trucking out equipment as the U.S. seeks to withdraw most of its combat forces from Afghanistan by the end of 2014.
Pakistan would also benefit from patching up relations because it needs U.S. assistance to help keep its struggling economy afloat. The U.S. has given Pakistan billions of dollars in aid since 2001 to enlist its support in fighting Islamist militants, but the relationship has been plagued by mistrust.
A Pakistani parliamentary commission tasked with proposing new guidelines for the relationship between the two countries last week demanded an end to American drone attacks and an apology for the airstrikes that killed Pakistani troops.
The commission also recommended that the Pakistani government charge NATO more for shipments through the country if it allows them to resume. The parliament is scheduled to begin debate on these points Monday.
Washington has expressed regret for the border incident but avoided a formal apology. U.S. officials were reportedly preparing to apologize last month but had to postpone the plan after U.S. soldiers burned copies of the Quran in Afghanistan. President Barack Obama apologized for that, bring criticism from political opponents.
The Pakistani army, and to a lesser extent the civilian government, will ultimately decide whether to restore ties with the U.S., but parliament could influence the decision. Analysts say placing the issue before lawmakers is an attempt to give the government and the army some political cover, so they can claim support of the country before quietly reopening the supply route.
Opposition lawmakers have indicated they may not back the proposed new terms with the U.S.
``If the government wants the parliament to provide guidance on certain issues and situations, then we are ready to, but the government has to convince us, because its track record regarding two previous resolutions proved to be very bad,'' Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, the leader of the opposition in parliament, said Saturday.
Parliament passed a resolution last May recommending Pakistan cut off NATO supplies if the U.S. didn't stop drone strikes in the country. The missile attacks continued, as did the NATO supplies.
The drone strikes are unpopular among Pakistanis and have long been publicly opposed by the Pakistani army and government as a violation of the country's sovereignty. They also maintain that the attacks fan support for militancy even as they kill insurgents.
The issue is muddied by the fact that in private, the army has approved at least some of the strikes and provided intelligence on them, raising questions over whether they technically violate the sovereignty of the country. American officials rarely talk about the program in public.Hmmmm.......V.P. Biden:" Taliban is not America's enemy". Read the full story here.

"These boots are made for drilling" - Feigned support of Keystone pipeline by the U.S. pres will only fuel gas prices for the U.S. market.

"These boots are made for drilling" - Feigned support of Keystone pipeline by the U.S. pres will only fuel gas prices for the U.S. market.(Ezra Levant).U.S. President Barack Obama posed in front of a stack of pipes this week, promising to cut through the red tape on the southern leg of the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Oklahoma to Texas.
Which is great. Except that the Oklahoma-to-Texas part of the pipeline was already approved. It had nothing to do with Obama — he only has jurisdiction over the part of the pipeline that crosses the Canada-U.S. border. And he vetoed that part of the pipe last fall.
So it's like Obama has approved attaching one garden hose to another garden hose. But he refuses to attach any of it to the faucet.
There is some utility to the lower leg of the pipeline — there is a bit of a bottleneck in Cushing, Okla., that this pipeline will address.But it's the line from Canada itself that's so important — that could add about 800,000 barrels of oil a day to the U.S. economy.
That oil won't make Americans drive any more. It would only replace current U.S. imports from Venezuela — the Keystone XL would go all the way down to the very same Texas refineries where Hugo Chavez sends his oil, coincidentally 800,000 barrels a day. So it's a pretty straight swap of Canadian ethical oil for Venezuelan conflict oil. And Obama chose Hugo Chavez over us.
He made that choice last fall, and he's paying a political price for it now — gas prices in the U.S. are as high as $1.30 a litre, which is a shock in a country that is used to paying less than a buck a litre (they measure it by the gallon down there).
It's strange for Canadians to pay less for gas than Americans do. But then a lot of things have changed under Obama. Our unemployment rate is 2% lower than theirs. Our corporate tax rate is 20% lower than theirs. Our credit rating is higher. We haven't had any banks fail.
It's like Opposite Day meets Groundhog Day. We're stronger than them, and getting stronger all the time.
Keystone XL has been studied for three years by the U.S. government. The Environmental Protection Agency gave it a thumbs up. The refineries want the oil. All the states involved want the pipeline. Transcanada, the pipeline company, agreed to reroute the pipe in a politically sensitive region of Nebraska. Both the Democrats and Republicans there gave it the thumbs up. But not Obama.
The problem is that he actually hates oil — even though he is the world's largest consumer of it, between his SUV motorcades and his Air Force One jets.
He believes in electric carseven though there is no market for $41,000 vehicles that only drive for an hour. He believes in solar panels — even though they're unworkable without massive subsidies. His own secretary of energy, Steven Chu, told a Congressional hearing last week that the government's mission is not to lower gas costs — but to get Americans off gas altogether.
Hey, great idea — when we invent that fantasy fuel of the future. But until that happy day — until dilithium crystals are invented — we're stuck with oil and all the wonderful things that come from it, ranging from gas for our ambulances and school buses, to petrochemicals for our iPhones.
You can't get off oil until you know what you're getting on to. And right now, there is no practical replacement.
Dreamy alternatives work for unserious people like science fiction moviemakers. James Cameron's movie Avatar talked about a resource called "Unobtainium." Exactly — we haven't obtained it yet. The president of the United States needs to be a bit more grown up.
Blocking the Keystone XL pipeline isn't going to stop a single American car trip. It will simply ensure that car is fueled by Hugo Chavez and King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, who must have been popping the champagne while laughing at Obama on TV.Read the full story here.

'Anti Israel league' Unite for Global March to Jerusalem.

'Anti Israel league' Unite for Global March to Jerusalem.(Fars).Tehran - A large number of the world leaders and politicians in a petition voiced their strong support for the Global March to Jerusalem (GMJ).The full text of the petition signed by the world leaders follows:
"We, the Advisory Board of the Global March to Jerusalem, are alarmed and deeply troubled by the continuing repression of Palestinians in Jerusalem and by the deliberate and systematic attempts to expel and reduce the Christian and Muslim Palestinian population of the city as part of the policy called "Judaization," which is being applied to every part of historic Palestine.
This policy is inconsistent with all relevant United Nations resolutions on Jerusalem and contrary to the most basic principles of international law. Its purpose is plainly to ethnically cleanse Jerusalem of its non-Jewish population and transform a once proud symbol of international tolerance and religious and cultural diversity into an exclusionary and racist enclave.
Jerusalem is our common universal heritage. It is the centre of spirituality and ideological significance for all of the monotheistic religions, and a beacon of emancipation and hope for the downtrodden. This historic city is venerated across the world for enhancing the spiritual heritage of all humanity; it has been a symbol of unity and equality, with a message of love, mercy and compassion.
However the entire world is now witnessing a threat to the sovereignty, sanctity and inviolability of Jerusalem. The plan is not only to destroy the Muslim and Christian presence, but also to change and dismantle the social structure of Jerusalem, obliterating its indigenous Arab identity and changing the character of the city. Etc, etc....

The Advisory Board of the Global March to Jerusalem

Iraqi-American woman beaten to death in California in possible 'hatecrime'.

Iraqi-American woman beaten to death in California in possible 'hatecrime'.(TGM).A woman from Iraq who was found beaten next to a threatening note saying “go back to your country” has died, and police are investigating the possibility of a hate crime.
Hanif Mohebi, the director of the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said Shaima Alawadi was taken off life support Saturday afternoon.
The family is in shock at the moment. They're still trying to deal with what happened,” said Mr. Mohebi, who met with family members.
Ms. Alawadi, a 32-year-old mother of five, had been hospitalized since her 17-year-old daughter found her unconscious in the dining room of the family's suburban San Diego house on Wednesday, Police Lieutenant Steve Shakowski said.
A hate crime is one of the possibilities, and we will be looking at that,” Lt. Mark Coit said. “We don't want to focus on only one issue and miss something else.”
The daughter, Fatima Al Himidi, told KUSI-TV her mother had been beaten on the head repeatedly with a tire iron, and that the note said “go back to your country, you terrorist.”
Addressing the camera, the tearful daughter asked: “You took my mother away from me. You took my best friend away from me. Why? Why did you do it?
Police said the family had found a similar note earlier this month but did not report it to authorities.
A family friend, Sura Alzaidy, told UT San Diego that the attack apparently occurred after the father took the younger children to school. Ms. Alzaidy told the newspaper the family is from Iraq, and that Ms. Alawadi was a “respectful modest muhajiba,” meaning she wears the traditional hijab, a head scarf.
The family had lived in the house for only a few weeks, after moving from Michigan, Ms. Alzaidy said. Ms. Alzaidy told the newspaper her father and Ms. Alawadi's husband had previously worked together in San Diego as private contractors for the U.S. Army, serving as cultural advisers to train soldiers who were going to be deployed to the Middle East.
Mr. Mohebi said the family had been in the United States since the mid-1990s. He said it was unfortunate that the family didn't report the initial threatening note.El Cajon, northeast of downtown San Diego, is home to some 40,000 Iraqi immigrants, the second largest such community in the U.S. after Detroit.Hmmmmm.......No word about possible break in......Let's hope it's not a 'covered up honorkilling'.Read the full story here.

Report: Israeli soldiers scour Iran for “smoking gun”.

Report: Israeli soldiers scour Iran for nukes.(YNet).Israel is using a permanent base in Iraqi Kurdistan to launch cross-border intelligence missions in an attempt to find “smoking gun” evidence that Iran is building a nuclear warhead, the Sunday Times reported Sunday.
According to Western intelligence sources, Israel has used sensitive equipment during its covert operations to monitor the radioactivity and magnitude of explosives tests.
It was also reported that Israeli special forces used Black Hawk helicopters to carry commandos disguised as members of the Iranian military and using Iranian military vehicles.
The sources said that Israel had been conducting intelligence missions in the area for several years. In recent months efforts aimed at the Parchin military complex near Tehran to which the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has been denied access, have intensified.According to the sources, operations are also aimed at Fordow near the city of Qom where Iran is working on high-level enrichment.

"Guaranteed Not Halal " Ester Petrack, former 'America's Next Top Model' contestant, now IDF soldier.(IDF).Esther Petrack was on the way to being the next big thing, after competing in the reality show “America’s Next Top Model” and making seventh place, when she decided a change of pace was in order. For her, the next big thing was entirely different; she wanted to become an IDF combat soldier.Esther was born in Jerusalem to a religious family and at sixteen, moved with her family to the United States. She made history when she became the first religious Jewish girl to compete in the “America’s Next Top Model“. She was on the fast lane to becoming a supermodel when things changed last year, during a visit to Israel for the first time in four years. Following her trip Esther decided to make Aliyah and join the army.
Upon enlisting, Esther was asked where she would like to serve. Though offered the chance to serve in administrative positions and office environments, she insisted upon the combat position of tank instructor.

'Obama, Erdogan discuss aid to Syrian opposition', Not a word about Iran oil waiver.......WHY?

'Obama, Erdogan discuss aid to Syrian opposition', Not a word about Iran oil waiver.......WHY?    (JPost).SEOUL - US President Barack Obama and Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday discussed providing medical supplies and communications support to the Syrian opposition but there was no talk of providing lethal aid for rebel forces, a US official said.
White House deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes, speaking to reporters after the two leaders met on the eve of a nuclear security summit in Seoul, said Washington and Ankara were open to considering further "non-lethal" aid for the Syrian opposition at a "Friends of Syria" meeting in Turkey on April 1.We worked on a common agenda in terms of how we can support both humanitarian efforts...(and) the efforts of Koffi Annan to bring about much needed change (in Syria)," Obama said after his meeting with Erdogan, a sharp critic of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Meanwhile, UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan was in Moscow for talks with President Dmitry Medvedev of Russia, which has crucial influence over diplomatic efforts to end the bloodshed in Syria.The former UN chief is visiting Russia and China - the two powers closest to Syrian President Bashar Assad as he seeks to crush an insurgency and silence protests in which the United Nations says his forces have killed more than 8,000 civilians.
Russia and China have shielded Damascus from UN Security Council condemnation by vetoing two Western-backed resolutions in six months, including one on Feb. 4 that would have backed an Arab League call for Assad to step aside.Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is set to hold a “lengthy” meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama in Seoul on March 25, and the issue of Turkey’s oil imports from Iran is expected to be high on the agenda, sources say.

Turkey says Fifteen Kurdish militants, all of them women killed.

Turkey says Fifteen Kurdish militants, all of them women killed.(BBC).Fifteen Kurdish militants, all of them women, have died in fighting with Turkish security forces, officials say.
The women were members of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and died in fighting in the south-eastern Bitlis province, the interior ministry said.
Bitlis is a stronghold of the banned PKK, which wants autonomy in Turkey's largely Kurdish south-east. Tensions have risen lately following street protests by thousands of Kurds to mark the Kurdish New Year, Novruz.
Correspondents say the death toll is believed to be the highest number of female PKK members killed at any one time. Turkish officials said a government-paid village guard, who was helping the Turkish security forces, was also killed in the clash.The interior ministry gave no other information.
Earlier this week, seven PKK rebels and six Turkish police officers died in clashes near Mount Cudi, in the province of Sirnak.
Last Sunday, police in the south-eastern city of Diyarbakir used tear gas and water cannon against thousands of Kurds protesting during Novruz celebrations.Tens of thousands of people have died since the PKK took up arms in 1984.Read the full story here.

Danny Ayalon tells Israel Radio that 'human rights council' 'fact-finding mission' won't be allowed in.

Danny Ayalon tells Israel Radio that 'human rights council' 'fact-finding mission' won't be allowed in.(IsraelMatzav).Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon told Israel Radio on Sunday morning that Israel will not cooperate with the United Nations 'human rights council's 'fact-finding mission' and will not allow its members to enter the country.
Israel Radio also reported on Sunday that a cabinet meeting on Sunday will consider punitive measures against the 'Palestinian Authority' for applying to the UN for the 'fact-finding' mission.
Part of these measures may include delaying the transfer of tax revenues to the PA, or freezing joint economic ventures between Jerusalem and the PA, a diplomatic source told Israel Radio.
Israel wants to send the PA a message that it cannot enjoy Israel's cooperation while at the same time "act against it in international bodies," the source said, referring the UN Human Rights Council approval last week of a plan to send observers to document the effect Jewish settlements have on Palestinian human rights.
Eight senior cabinet ministers will convene Sunday to discuss possible sanctions on the PA.
Israel froze tax transfers to Palestinian Authority last year, following UNESCO's decision to admit the Palestinian Authority as a member state in October. While Jerusalem released the funds in November, the government warned it would freeze them again were the PA to continue to pursue statehood unilaterally at the UN.
Israel is also considering cutting all ties with the 'human rights council.'Read the full story here.

Canada - Muslim book that teaches men how to beat women flying off the Shelves.

Canada - Muslim book that teaches men how to beat women flying off the Shelves.(SUNNews).TORONTO - A local bookstore has "sold out" of a controversial marriage guide that advises Muslim men on how to beat their wives.
The 160-page book, published by Idara Impex in New Delhi, India, is written by Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi, who's described in the book's foreword as a "prolific writer on almost every topic of Islamic learning."
The store's manager, who didn't give his name, said the book had been sold out for some time, and the store's owner, whom the manager identified as Shamim Ahmad, refused to comment for the story.
It wasn't clear whether the shop has ordered more copies of the book, but it's available at online Islamic bookstores and even through eBay.
In the book's opening pages, it is written that "it might be necessary to restrain her with strength or even to threaten her."
Later, its author advises that "the husband should treat the wife with kindness and love, even if she tends to be stupid and slow sometimes."
Page 45 contains the rights of the husband, which include his wife's inability to leave "his house without his permission," and that his wife must "fulfil his desires" and "not allow herself to be untidy ... but should beautify herself for him ... "
In terms of physical punishment, the book advises that a husband may scold her, "beat by hand or stick," withhold money from her or "pull (her) by the ears," but should "refrain from beating her excessively."
Moderate Muslim voice Tarek Fatah says the shopkeeper should be charged for selling such a book.
"I wouldn't say it's hate, but it is inciting men to hit women," said Fatah, who identified the book's author as a prominent Islamic scholar. "This is new to you, but the Muslim community knows that this is widespread, that a woman can be beaten. Muslim leaders will deny this, but... "
Eric Brazau says he was flipping through the marriage guide while in the bookstore around a month ago.
Brazau bought it out of curiosity but was taken aback when he found dozens of chapters and passages giving Muslim husbands advice on controlling, restraining, scolding and beating their wives.
"At first, I thought that it is incredible that this kind of thing can be found in Canada," said Brazau. "And then I thought, radical Islam is not coming to Canada, it is already here."Read the full story here.

Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Mao and Obama!

Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Mao and Obama!(DocsTalk).Commentary by Peter M.

On March 16, 2012 President Barack Hussein Obama signed an Executive Order claiming full authority over all activities within the United States. These activities include all transportation, energy, agriculture, homeland security, as well as the authority over all resources within the United States and their specific allocation. The Executive Order further creates additional bureacracies delegated to his immediate Cabinet members as well as a new National Defense Executive Reserve (NDER) “composed of persons of recognized expertise from various segments of the private sector…” [Section 501]

This Executive Order by Obama draws on the original “Defense Production Act of 1950”, [50 U.S.C. App. 2061] This was an act of Congress, which is why it is called an “Act”. It is legislation drafted and approved by Congress, and signed into law by President Harry Truman in 1950.
I have been an aviation Defense Contractor since 1965. During Vietnam I received military aircraft parts contracts that carried Defense Priority ratings as critical materials. The usual rating was “DOA1C”, which allowed me, as a contractor for critical materials, to claim priority with my suppliers of raw materials and processing services over any commercial customers. The Defense Priority rating system was the result of the “Defense Production Act of 1950”, with the specific rating system codified into the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR). To this day I receive orders from the military subject to the rating system.

The “Defense Production Act of 1950” is reauthorized each year by Congress. It was created and implemented after WW2 to assure that appropriate resources would be identified and available to the United States should there ever be a national emergency again. The Korean War a few years later certainly proved the value of the “Defense Production Act of 1950”. Again, it is legislation that was created by Congress, approved by Congress, and amended by Congress. In each case of reauthorization it has been appropriately signed by the sitting President of the United States.

One of the more recent amendments to the “Defense Production Act of 1950” included the
requirement to utilize Small Business as much as possible in the procurement of critical goods and services in a national defense emergency, as well as the production of critical goods to be stockpiled.
There is one critical prohibition that has been a part of the “Defense Production Act of 1950”,
[50 U.S.C App. 2074], section 104 entitled, “Limitation on Actions without Congressional Authorization”. This prohibition provides in paragraph (a) that there can be no “imposition of wage or price controls without prior authorization of such action by a joint resolution of Congress.” Paragraph (b) is far more interesting! “No provision [of the Act]…shall be exercised or interpreted to require action or compliance by any private person to assist in any way in the production of or other involvement in chemical of biological warfare capabilities…”

In section 105 of the “Defense Production Act of 1950” it prohibits the President from rationing gasoline unless authorized by Congress.
Section 106 identifies “Energy” as “strategic and critical material”. However, once again, the President is prohibited, unless authorized by Congress, from engaging in any new authority for “the mandatory allocation or pricing of a fuel or feedstock (including, but not limited to, crude oil, residual fuel oil, any refined petroleum product, natural gas, or coal) or electricity or any other form of energy; or…”

“…the production of energy in any manner whatsoever (such as oil and gas exploration and development, or any energy facility construction), except as expressly provided in sections 305 and 306 [50 U.S.C. App. 2095 and 2096] for SYNTHETIC FUEL PRODUCTION” [my

The “Defense Production Act of 1950” does provide the authority to the President to “provide appropriate incentives to develop, maintain, modernize, and expand the productive capacities of domestic sources for critical components, critical technology items, and industrial resources essential for the execution of the national security strategy of the United States.”

Now armed with the original Congressional intent of the “Defense Production Act of 1950” as amended, what does Obama’s Executive Order do that he signed on March 16, 2012?

1. Obama’s Executive Order completely byasses and ignores the Congress of the United
States in direct violation of the “Defense Production Act of 1950”!

2. Obama’s Executive Order completely ignores the prohibitions of Presidential authority in the “Defense Production Act of 1950”!

3. Obama’s Executive Order creates Presidential authorities that do not exist in the
“Defense Production Act of 1950”, and not authorized by Congress.
This Executive Order signed by Obama on March 16, 2012 is tantamount to the “Executive
Orders” issued by Adolf Hitler after assuming dictatorial power in Germany in 1933, Josef Stalin after assuming dictatiorial power in Russia, Moussilini after assuming dictatorial power in Uitaly, and Mao after assuming dictatorial power in China.

In short, Obama’s Executive Order claims Presidential authority over all resources and
technology of the United States reserving that authority strictly to the Executive Branch of our American government. The frightening part of the Order is that it intends it to apply “in peacetime and in national emergency.” [Section 102]

The Order further extends its authority over all “subcontractors and suppliers,, materials, skilled labor, and professional and technical personnel.” [Section 103(b)] As previously prohibited by Congress in the original Act, Obama now claims the authority to force “action or compliance by any private person to assist in any way in the production of or other involvement in chemical of biological warfare capabilities…” If Obama decided he wants my aviation repair business, he
can take it under his new Executive Order, as well as force me to continue my ownership under
his specific direction! He can now demand this either in peacetime or in the case of national security emergency.

The direct delegation authority of Obama’s Executive Order confers the same authority on the Secretaries of State, Treasury, Defense, Interior, Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, Transportation, Health and Human Services, Energy, Homeland Security, the Attorney Genberal, Director of National Intelligence, Director of the CIA, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors, Administrator of NASA, and the Administrator of General Service. [Section 701] To make matters worse, each agency head has the delegated authority under Obama’s Executive Order to implement “standards and procedures by which the authority shall be used to promote the national defense, under both emergency and non-emergency conditions.” [Section 201(6)(b)]

In order to implement these standards and procedures by agency heads, they are authorized to either guarantee loans, or make direct cash loans to “subcontractors and suppliers, materials, skilled labor, and professional and technical personnel.” [Section 302] They are also authorized to bypass the requirement to utilize Small Business in their discretion.

Connecting the “dots” makes Obama’s new Executive Order very intriguing. Things like this do not occur in a vacuum. There are always connected events!
Last week an ammunition manufacturer, ATK, issued a press release announcing an order from Homeland Security for 450 MILLION rounds of .40 caliber pistol ammunition. You don’t have to belong to the NRA to know that .40 caliber ammo is ONLY used by law enforcement, not the military, which uses 9mm and .45ACP pistol ammo. The .40 caliber is used by local, state and Federal law enforcement such as Secret Service, FBI, Treasury, Border Patrol, etc. State National Guard units do not use .40 caliber ammo either. What does Homeland Security know? What are they preparing for? It IS an election year with the most anti-American President ever trying to get re-elected!
Let’s add another “dot”! Obamacare [HR 3590] creates, in Section 5210, a “Ready Reserve Corps” of “commissioned” officers equal to military commissioned officers, and mandates the required funding to get it started. It even states that these Obamacare commissioned officers can, if necessary, be incorporated into the military command structure if necessary.
Is there some nexus between the Ready Reserve Corps and its authority to capture and quarantine Americans under specific conditions, the order to ATK for 450 MILLION rounds of .40 caliber law enforcement ammunition, and Obama’s new Executive Order?
This election year, 2012, will be the ugliest since the election of 1800 between Jefferson, Adams, and Burr!
Obama has enabled the Left, the unionists, the Communists, the Socialists, the Progressives, the Black community, culminating in the “Occupy” movement, which undoubtedly will turn violent sometime during the Summer. Obama has polarized America by referring to “haves and have nots”, supporting the “99%” against the “1%” to pander for votes.
As Alexis deTocqueville stated in 1838 in his seminal work, “Democracy in America”, “When the people discover they can vote themselves money from the public treasury, the [American] experiment will be over!” We have reached that point! When 50% of the people are getting some handout from the government, such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare, food stamps, student loans, etc., they will ALWAYS vote for those in power who provide the handouts! This is not rocket science. However, as Prime Minister Thatcher once said, “Socialism is great until the government runs out of other people’s money!”
Make no mistake, Obama is gearing up the Federal law enforcement community to quell the forthcoming civilian unrest before AND after the coming election!
Prior to the election there will be protests [now prohibited as of last week by Congress!] and violence by the Leftists, the unionists, the Communists, the Socialists, the Progressives, the Black community, and the “Occupy” movement.
If Obama is NOT re-elected, there will be protests [now prohibited as of last week by Congress!] and violence by the Left, the unionists, the Communists, the Socialists, the Progressives, the Black community, and the “Occupy” movement.
The rest of us must prepare for this inevitability and take action to protect our families and our property.
Glenn Beck put it very well when he described the coming events as, “Bottom up, Top down, Inside out!” Once the unrest begins, the population will demand that the government stabilize the situation, thus Obama’s new Executive Order to exercise control over everything!Hmmmm.........

"Mob Justice" - New Black Panthers offer $10,000 bounty for capture of shooter George Zimmerman.

"Mob Justice" - New Black Panthers offer $10,000 bounty for capture of shooter George Zimmerman.(OS).SANFORD — Members of the New Black Panther Party are offering a $10,000 reward for the "capture" of George Zimmerman, leader Mikhail Muhammad announced during a protest in Sanford today.
When asked whether he was inciting violence, Muhammad replied defiantly saying: "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."
The bounty announcement came moments after members of the group called for the mobilization of 10,000 black men to capture George Zimmerman, the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin last month.
Muhammad said members of his group would search for Zimmerman themselves in Maitland and Jacksonville -- where the 28-year old worked before the shooting, employees there told the Orlando Sentinel. But he declined to say when they will begin their hunt.
Muhammad said the group's national chairman, Dr. Malik Zulu Shabaz of Washington, D.C. is receiving donations from black entertainers and athletes. They hope to collect $1 million by next week, Muhammad said.
The party said they would not release the names of donors nor would they provide documentation to support the existence of donations.
The New Black Panthers announced the reward at a protest in Sanford Saturday, the activist group's third protest in the past two weeks over the fatal shooting of the Miami Gardens teen.
The group called for Zimmerman's arrest and threatened to find and detain him if police were not willing to do so. But group members didn't call for the mobilization of thousands until Saturday.
Muhammed led the group in chanting "Justice for Trayvon!" and "Black Power!"
"If the government won't do the job, we'll do it," Muhammad said, leading his group of eight party members in chants like "freedom or death" and "justice for Trayvon" while making the iconic gesture of raising their fists into the air.
The party members said they are tired of the inaction of government officials — from Sanford city officials up to the Governor, accusing them of lying and delaying justice.
They accused newly-appointed special prosecutor Angela Corley of being an enemy of the black community."She has a track record of sending innocent young black men and women to prison," he said.Hmmmm.......Can't wait to see AG Holder acting on the 'actions' of 'His People'.Read the full story here.

Update: The media also characterizes Trayvon as a "model student." In fact, he under a five day suspension when the shooting took place. That is why he was staying at a house so far from his school on a school night. A laywer for Trayvon's family has blocked access to his school records. However, you have to do something pretty bad to get suspended for five days.Full story here.

Libyan 'missing' Missiles Show Up In Gaza.

Libyan 'missing' Missiles Show Up In Gaza.(StrategyPage).March 22, 2012: Israel has spotted some of the 480 Russian Igla-S (SA-24) shoulder fired anti-aircraft missiles that had been sold to Libya and stolen from military warehouses during the rebellion there last year. Some of these weapons have shown up in Gaza in the hands of Islamic terrorist group Hamas. Most Israeli and NATO helicopters and aircraft are equipped with missile detection and protection (lasers or flares) systems. Such systems on Israeli AH-64 helicopter gunships operating over Gaza have defeated several SA-24 attacks recently.
Last year Russia supplied Libyan missile serial numbers, which were distributed to counter-terrorism officials worldwide with the admonition to be vigilant. Apparently the SA-24 thieves sold many of the SA-24s to Iran, which in turn gave some to Hamas and Hezbollah (another Iran backed Islamic terror group in Lebanon).Read the full story here.

Japanese 'Mary Celeste' tied to earthquake and tsunami spotted off Canada's B.C. coast.

Japanese 'Mary Celeste' tied to earthquake and tsunami spotted off Canada's B.C. coast.(Yahoo).VANCOUVER - A 54-meter-long fishing vessel linked to last year's devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan has been spotted adrift off the British Columbia coast.
Jeff Olsson of Victoria's Joint rescue Co-ordination Centre says an airline contracted by the federal government spotted the vessel on Tuesday about 140 nautical miles west of the southern tip of Haida Gwaii.
The vessel has been identified as coming from Hokkaido, Japan and officials say it's drifting very slowly towards shore.Olsson says no one is believed to be on board and there's no risk of environmental damage.However, a warning has gone out to mariners because the vessel poses a potential navigational hazard.As much as five million tonnes of debris were swept into the ocean last March when a massive magnitude-9 earthquake and resulting tsunami struck Japan.Read the full story here.

God Waiting for Pussy Riot ‘Repentance’ – Russian Church Official.

God Waiting for Pussy Riot ‘Repentance’ – Russian Church Official.(RaiNovosti).God expects the all-female group Pussy Riot to repent for their anti-Putin “punk prayer” in Moscow’s largest cathedral, a leading Russian Orthodox official has said.
“They are no longer Orthodox Christians,” Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin said during a talk show on the website of the Snob magazine. “God has already judged them and is now waiting for their repentance.”
Five members of Pussy Riot, clad in brightly-colored balaclavas, performed an acapella version of what they said was a “punk prayer” entitled “Holy Sh*t at the altar of the Christ the Savior Cathedral in downtown Moscow on February 21. The lyrics included lines such as “Holy Mother, Blessed Virgin, chase Putin out!”
The group said the performance was a protest against powerful Orthodox Church head Patriarch Kirill’s support for Vladimir Putin in the run-up to the March 4 presidential elections. The performance came amid the biggest demonstrations against Putin’s rule since he first came to power in 2000.
Three alleged members of the group have since been detained and could face up to seven years behind bars if found guilty of hooliganism charges. Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina have been remanded in custody until April 24.
A third suspected member, Irina Lokteva, was arrested last week and a judge will decide on Friday if she will also remain in custody until her trial. All the women have small children.Chaplin, who oversees relations between Russia’s influential Orthodox Church and society, also said that he was ready to visit the group in custody.“The Church does not want to destroy its enemies, but change the sinners for the better,” added Chaplin.A number of religious figures, including Chaplain, have said the women should not be imprisoned.“Putin is behind the repression of Pussy Riot, not believers or the Orthodox Church,” an at-liberty masked member of Pussy Riot said on the Snob show, which was hosted by socialite turned opposition activist Ksenia Sobchak. “He was scared by the Russian uprising.”Another group member denied the performance was of an anti-religious nature. “We respect all religions, including Orthodox Christianity,” she said.Read the full story here.

Video - An attorney for G. Zimmerman is speaking out, saying his client is not a racist, and that he acted in self-defense.

ORLANDO - An attorney representing George Zimmerman is speaking out, saying his client is not a racist, and that he acted in self-defense the night Trayvon Martin was shot and killed.
Craig Sonner spoke with FOX 35 in Orlando. He said he did not know George Zimmerman's location. He said due to death threats, he has been advising Zimmerman to avoid going out in public.
He referred to a flier saying Zimmerman was "Wanted dead or alive."
"I have advised him to stay out the public eye as much as he can," Sonner said.
Sonner also gave more details about injuries Zimmerman sustained that night.
"He did suffer a broken nose, and he has an injury to the back of his head which should have required stitches. I think he was delayed in getting to the doctor and having stitches put in. But he did sustain injuries to his head," Sonner said.
Sonner said portrayals of his client as a racist are not accurate. As an example, he cited Zimmerman's participation in fundraisers for an African-American church in the Orlando area.It looks like there is shocking new evidence to come out in the Trayvon Martin case and it involves a witness who claims to have seen the entire episode. He was interviewed by the Fox affiliate in Tampa and appears to paint a picture of what happened that is completely different from the narrative being pushed by the typical race-baiters. The fact remains that Martin was unarmed but if the testimony from this witness is accurate, it points to Martin actually attacking Zimmerman.
The meme being pushed by the race-baiters is that Zimmerman was going after Martin while talking to a 911 operator, who told him not to continue. The implication - if you listen to the race baiters - is that Zimmerman kept pursuing Martin while also being the only one of the two with a gun. This witness, who would not go on camera, seems to indicate that Zimmerman listened to the 911 operator and turned back before Martin attacked him.Read the full story here.

FM Avigdor Liberman 'Iran wants nukes in order to spread its ideology'

FM Avigdor Liberman 'Iran wants nukes in order to spread its ideology'.(JPost).Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said Sunday that Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons stems from the Islamic Republic's desire to spread its ideology all over the world.
During a meeting with the Jewish community in Singapore, Liberman said that Iran is seeking to "spread the Islamic Revolution to as many countries as possible, and the nuclear weapon is merely a tool meant to aid in achieving this goal."The foreign minister stated that the leadership of Iran makes use of Israel as an excuse to carry out its actions.
"Iran has a fanatical and charismatic leadership...that uses Israel as an excuse, but they are actually battling against the entire West over whose values will control the world," Liberman said.
Liberman said that upcoming talks between Iran and the P5 + 1 group of world powers about Iran's nuclear program present the Islamic Republic's last chance to change its course.
He expressed hope that Iran could be persuaded to abandon its nuclear program at the talks scheduled to take place in April. The P5 + 1 powers include the five members of the UN Security Council - the US, UK, France China and Russia - as well as Germany.Read the full story here.

Malaysia professor wants “Gay cure” group established: "They deteriorate further by abandoning Islam".

Malaysia professor wants “Gay cure” group established: "They deteriorate further by abandoning Islam".(BM).KUALA LUMPUR: The two girls steal kisses in the corner of this dimly lit cafe in Malaysia’s capital city, Kuala Lumpur. Their hands poke each other routinely. Life is good for Isa’a and Rina, two college girls who have found young love.“Life is good,” Isa’a, the more outspoken of the two, told “We live together as roommates, our families don’t know and we can just enjoy ourselves.”
But they are worried about the new push in the country to crackdown on the LGBT community. “Yes, it is very scary. I mean can you imagine if our parents found us in bed together? It would be the end of us, really,” said Rina, her activist side coming out.
But for the two youthful girls of 19-years-old, if Assistant Professor of Psychology at Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysi Meriam Omar Din found out about the two lesbians, she would attempt to put them through what he is calling an “Islamic core group” to deal with homosexual relationships.
According to her, the new “group” would aim to “guide Muslims inclined towards same-sex relationships, such as lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transexuals (the LGBT community) back to the right path.”
She argued that more Muslims in the country are “engaging in unnatural sexual activities.”
The girls laugh the professor off. “She probably just is unhappy with her husband, or doesn’t have someone to love and that is why she is so angry. Or she is a lesbian and can’t admit it,” argued Isa’a, with her partner Rina laughing.
Omar Din, however, seems quite serious about “battling” the LGBT community, which in recent years has become more open and public with their life.“The core group could somewhat curtail the trend. From what I gathered through communicating with LGBT, not all of them are happy with the life they are leading.“They were drawn into the situation because of sexuality problems, low self-esteem and immoral lifestyle,” she told Bernama here.
She said society had been tolerant towards the community which comprised some very talented people in the arts, as could be seen by the willingness of relevant agencies to employ them.
Getting them closer to Islam is an appropriate approach to detach them from same-sex dependence,” she said, dismissing social websites as a factor.“Unnatural sex was already rooted before the existence of social websites. In the past, those who suffered from an identity crisis would run away from home and go to Chow Kit because they knew there is a group there that would accept them.”The professor said the LGBT would stay away from mainstream society and join the cluster that they believed could accept and support them.“They rebel collectively against society by wearing clothes or do things against the norm.“They deteriorate further by abandoning Islam because they know their activities are against the religion’s teachings and as such, it is a cause for anxiety among religious circles, as well as Muslims,” she added.
What’s ironic is that both Isa’a and Rina said they were devout Muslims who attend mosque regularly and often find themselves together, studying their faith.“You know, there might be a lot of LGBT who are anti-religion, but I find no contradiction to our lifestyle and our live in the Qur’an, so we are happily Muslims and proud,” added Rina.Hmmmm......Read the full story here.
