“Putting up a sign that erases a spring’s Arab name and invents a Hebrew name to replace it, or destroying an ancient building and putting up a memorial in its place in an attempt to create an exclusive Jewish settler memory, are provocations solely for the sake of provocation.”
Not to mention an erasure of the past to ‘justify’ land theft and ethnic cleansing -JG.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Today the Internal Revenue Service received a 1,389 page filing demanding that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC’s) tax exempt status be retroactively revoked. The filing, submitted by the IRmep Center for Policy and Law Enforcement, spans nearly 60 years, from the moment AIPAC’s founder left the employment of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs to the present.

South Korea’s defense minister says his country may consider having U.S. tactical nuclear weapons deployed on its soil for the first time in 19 years.
What I don’t understand is, where is the FBI in all this?
According to Steve Rosen, who is suing AIPAC, his evidence includes “…statements of AIPAC employees to the FBI, internal documents, deposition statements, public statements and other evidence showing that [the] receipt of classified information by employees other than [himself] … was condoned …”
Why did the FBI and the Justice Dept. not commence action to put AIPAC out of business before, when the statements were first made?
And will they be taking any action now using Rosen’s evidence, whether it is used in his lawsuit against AIPAC or not?
Conservation groups say big cats could be extinct by 2022 unless hundreds of millions of dollars are spent.
Some 25 to 30 years ago I read an article in OMNI magazine discussing the future possibilities of ‘reviving’ extinct species by obtaining DNA samples wherever possible, and then using closely related living creatures to use the DNA to ‘reproduce’ them.
“Leo was never given an opportunity to defend himself. He wasn’t called as a witness at the trial and never gave any evidence. He wasn’t even on trial. He had no standing or status at the trial.
“To make matters worse, there’s no redress available for Leo. That’s because judges have what the law refers to as an “absolute privilege.”
“…the creation of isolated communities can spawn groups that are exclusivist and potentially open to messages in which violence is advocated…the existence of such mini-societies undermines resilience and the fostering of a cohesive Canadian nation.”
What on earth does ‘multiculturalism’ advocate, if not many separate groups within Canada joined only (to this cynical observer) by a mutual thirst for welfare, cultural ‘grants’ and other social services such as Medicare and baby bonuses? Seeing this, why would Islamists not try to take it a little bit further?
“To mandate that the club offer memberships to women would have violated the club’s right of contract — to establish its own policies for use of its private property — and would have effectively given the “victims” of discrimination the right of trespass.”
China’s rise in the Middle East

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu was in China this month touting the “new cooperation paradigm” between Ankara and Beijing. Just a week earlier, a top political advisor to Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao spent five days in Syria signing deals and planting olive trees in the Golan Heights. The Middle Kingdom, it seems, is planting deep roots in the Middle East these days.
“Up and down the Valley, small packing plants that serve nearby farmers are being bought by Muslims.
“While the Pakenham abattoir processes beef and lamb, it doesn’t handle pork. Neither will other slaughterhouses that have recently been bought by Muslims in Eastern Ontario. That creates a puzzle for this area’s pig farmers.”
