It is so interesting me. Here I am in the most magnificent surroundings.........truly beautiful, really. And having the time of my life...............my girls are para-sailing, swimming with dolphins (have pics but forget the USB cord (sorry)...................I won $1,000(!) last night at the black jack table because this fabulous girl was basically telling me what to do. She was amazing, while her hubby sat next to her and let her do it all ..............anyway not to get tangential.
So here I am, it's all wonderful. and yet I feel as if I am watching the last days of an era ironically the resort is "Atlantis"..........a time gone by. A new age is upon us. And no it's not Chicken Little but there is a certain undeniable reality that few outside of the blogosphere are cognizant of. Nothing scares me..........except this incomprehensible blindness and denial. This is the real threat. Is it because America recovered too well from 9/11.
If you missed the National Geographic Channel's presentation of "Inside
9/11," you missed a chance to clear up any confusion about our enemies and their
Fortunately, you have a second chance; the program is to air again on Sept. 8.
Iran has made a new breakthrough in its controversial nuclear program, successfully using biotechnology to extract larger and cheaper quantities of uranium concentrate from its mines, state television reported.
Quoting the unnamed manager of the project, state television said on Monday night that "the new technique used for the production of yellowcake will reduce costs, and efficiency will increase one hundred-fold as well."
The bad news is that, if anything, he [new Iranian President Ahmadinejad- Atlas]can be expected to be a far more formidable enemy of the West—and of America in particular. A month ago General Safavi declared before an audience of senior naval officers that Tehran's mission was to create "a multipolar world in which —Iran plays a leadership role" for Islam. Recently Ahmadinejad announced one of the most ambitious government mission statements in decades, declaring that the ultimate goal of Iran's foreign policy is nothing less than "a government for the whole world" under the leadership of the Mahdi, the Absent Imam of the Shiites—code for the export of radical Islam. As for the only power capable of challenging this vision, the United States is in its "last throes," an ofuli (sunset) power destined to be superceded by the toluee (sunrise) of the Islamic republic. Geopolitical dominance in the Middle East, the tract unequivocally stated, is "the incontestable right of the Iranian nation."
On September 14th, just days after the anniversary of 9/11, one of the Iranian terrorists who took US citizens hostage in Iran in 1979 is coming to New York to address the 2005 World Summit at the UN. That Iranian terrorist is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the new president of Iran. An ad hoc committee is organizing a rally in protest of this terrorist visiting New York. The rally is to be held on September 14th at 11am in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza (1st & 47th) near the UN. More information on the committee and rally can be found at www.no2ahmadinejad.com.
Despite Israel's withdrawal from Gaza, the Palestinians will not ease pressure on Israel at international forums and will try and bring discussion of the security fence back to the United Nations General Assembly this fall, according to diplomatic assessments in Jerusalem.
Israel has been in constant contact with European countries to try and keep this initiative from gaining traction, local officials say.
Palestinian officials have made no secret of their interest in now moving the focus of their diplomatic activity to international bodies like the UN in an attempt to get Israel to complete the withdrawal from Gaza, including control over the border crossings, and to commit to additional steps.
In addition to focusing on the fence, the PA is also in discussion with the UN and the Quartet in an attempt to prevent any UN resolution acknowledging the end of Israel's occupation of Gaza.
and the evil becomes legitimate. When I was a kid I could not fathom the holocaust. I could never understand how such a thing could happen. How people let it happening. I see it now. I see it happening now.............how each evil leads to another evil then another, each one more grave and depraved.
In Praise of 'Hamastan' -- Interview with Hamas Co-founder Mahmoud Zahar
Gaza should be Hamastan. Why not? We are not corrupt. We are serving the poorer classes. We are defending our land. It should be Hamastan! Containment will not succeed with Hamas. I don't trust the term "moderate." We are already moderate. But if people believe we will be moderate in the Western style, or a pro-Israeli style—that's not moderate. That's corruption. [Would Hamas accept a two states peace plan?] Nobody on the Israeli side, from the extreme right to the extreme left, will withdraw from Jerusalem. At the same time, believe me, nobody on the Palestinian side, in the Arab and Muslim world, will accept keeping Jerusalem under occupation. [The Palestinians] lost everything [after Oslo]. We are not the PLO. We are not going to repeat a failed [process].
The Palis lost everything after Oslo? THE JEWS LOST EVERYTHING AFTER OSLO.
