Syria and Iran obtain German missile technology, magazine says (thru Russia)
Deutsche Presse-Agentur ^ | Nov 5, 2005
Posted on 11/05/2005 11:13:26 PM PST by F14 Pilot
Munich - Berlin has warned German industry that missile- builders in Iran and Syria are obtaining sophisticated German equipment via criminal, Moscow-based companies, the news magazine Focus reported Saturday.
The equipment was initially being legally exported to Moscow, where the middlemen, posing as legitimate Russian industrial companies and research institutions, were sending it straight to Iran and Syria.
In the report, to hit the streets Monday and released in advance to the news media, Focus said the method was explained in a confidential warning to many German companies to be on the lookout for the ruse.
It said Iran was obtaining measuring devices, propulsion systems and guidance systems to enhance its Shahab 3 medium-range missile. The Shahab 3 is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead and could hit targets in Europe since it has a 3,500-kilometre range.
Syria was obtaining such systems to modernize its outdated Russian-built Scud missiles, the magazine said. The Scuds are mainly seen as a threat to Israel.
The Berlin warning named 15 firms with addresses in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Samara which had been involved in such illegal deals in the past. Among them was an institute attached to the State Technical University of Moscow.
It was not clear from the Focus report whether militarily useful equipment had already reached Iran and Syria using the ruse.
OPINION: Makes sense to me, granny.
Birds of a feather...
Agree.....primary is still a major caliber that I have carried since age of 16 and for my 26 years of military service. I hit the range once a week still, sometimes twice a week. In the service I had the use of shoot houses to 'create the stress and later as a Deputy Sheriff the training game was simunitions. I learned that greying out , kind of like a fighter pilot does, only ya stay awake, under high G forces was a real concern during gunfights.
We'd tape our tranining scenerios and review afterwards . The instructors would ask why we did this or that and we'd honestly swear on moms grave we didn't do such......the tapes didn't lie. Yet just the pucker factor of training at first would lock up your mind. I would do speed or tactical reloads repetedly like a blithering idgit under fire. The training was so good it created the fear and confusion I experienced later on in my career.
I learned early on that regardless of ones firepower in hand it is friggin useless if you have not the ability and will power to keep thinking and yer noggin in serious swivel mode.
I have seen units in the IDF and Israeli secret service use the little beretta 70 & 71S .22 automatics (not made any more) in such a surgical and precise manner to the right eye left eye, knee cap or hit in the motors agressors to "stop" them.
My selection of a .22 (as a backup) was based on how I had personally seen its use in training with some of those folks. Hits are key IMHO, placement is nice yet not as important as multiple hits, fast and accurate center mass when the threat is close. If the threat is far enough away to allow I'll go to cover everytime vs trying to return fire.
As a retired serviceman and former LEO I have no legal authority . As a civilian I am obligated to avoid, evade and stop the threat of deadly force against me and mine. I have no more free ammo days with uncle sugar or the county taxpayers dime'n time. Thus the closest I get to threat scenerios is participating three gun matches and IDPA. More fun than training per se yet it's trigger time that reinforces past musclematic memory skills and enhances my point shooting skills.
Be it .22 or 45ACP.......training and teaching your mind and body the martial art of shooting under high stress. And I mean sh*t and go blind stress.
Stay safe AD !!....Hope you and yours is well. Always like to read and learn from others experiences. Thanks for sharing with me.

Calls to jihad in Australia
"A call to hate and to prayer," from The Australian, with thanks to Scaramouche:
It's October 21, the middle of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month, and Sheik Abdul Salam Mohammed Zoud, who has been living in Australia since the mid-1990s, stands on a platform at the front of the room reading his sermon in Arabic.
"Ramadan is not a month for indolence," he screams through a lapel microphone, drawing on Koranic parables about the importance of annihilating al-adou (the enemy) and stressing the Koranic obligation of jihad (spiritual struggle or holy war) during the month of fasting. His voice can be heard clearly in the car park outside.
"Ramadan is a month for jihad upon oneself and jihad upon the enemy," he says, a time when followers must become more disciplined in adhering to the message of the Koran, and more willing and prepared to topple the enemy of Islam: the West.
Listeners nod approvingly as Zoud praises mujaheddin - guerilla warriors engaged in holy war - who are waging bloody battles against Western troops across the world, and implores Allah to grant them victory in their fight against the enemies of Islam.
"Allah yinsur el-mujaheddin fe-Iraq (God grant victory to the mujaheddin in Iraq)," he screams, his voice crackling as he defies his own vocal range. He then repeats the message three times, each time screaming it louder and with more intensely.
Twice at the end of the 35-minute oration in front of the men, who are mostly in their 30s and 40s, the sheik exclaims in a voice filled with angst and passion, blame and hate: "Inshallah (God willing) dark days will descend upon America soon."
Two Fridays earlier, at a prayer centre at Michael Street in Brunswick, Melbourne's Muslim heartland, the man regarded as Australia's most radical imam, Sheik Mohammed Omran, stands before his mixed band of followers....
He says Islamic unity and victory in the face of the West cannot be "stopped by George Bush or Tony Blair or John Howard".
"If you don't unite, your faces will be smeared in dirt," he adds.
Both Zoud's and Omran's prayer groups teach Wahhabism, a fundamentalist branch of Islam founded in Saudi Arabia in the 1700s that inspired the former Taliban regime in Afghanistan and is preached by the world's most notorious terrorist: Osama bin Laden, leader of al-Qa'ida....
Zoud has formerly been accused of having links to terror suspects and recruiting for jihad. And although he has denied such accusations, he cannot deny the fact his prayer centre, located in Sydney's Muslim heartland, has attracted terror suspects, including Frenchman Willie Brigitte, arrested and deported to Paris in 2003 for allegedly plotting a bomb attack on Sydney's naval base; and former Qantas baggage handler Bilal Khazal, who is facing terrorism-related charges in Australia.
Friday sermons at the Haldon Street and Michael Street prayer centres are predominantly geared towards political issues affecting Muslims across the world. The US and President George W. Bush figure prominently in Zoud's and Omran's sermons.
"Last night, President Bush said that the so-called fanatic Muslims would like to build an empire reaching from Indonesia to Spain," Omran said during his October 7 sermon. "And he has not said anything as truer or more accurate. What is wrong with doing that? ... What are we doing to achieve that objective?"
Omran's call to action goes even further during a Friday sermon at Michael Street conducted the following week by Harun Abu Talha, news editor of Mecca News, published by the Ahlus Sunnah Wal-Jamaah organisation led by Omran.
During the predominantly English qutbah, the cleric says: "We should not compromise our deen [religion] for the sake of peace." It is a message greeted by collective nods from a group of more than 100 men, many of whom were present at Omran's sermon the previous Friday....
While Naji al-Imam's service is purely religious, Abu Talha, who is believed to be Bosnian, discusses "our brothers and sisters" who are dying at the hands of Western troops in Afghanistan and begins to discuss the importance of jihad before quipping: "We cannot say too much about mujaheddin in this country." The joke elicits sniggers and laughter from the group....

About Iraq and the diary of Siddiuque, who was arrested.
If the gate does not open, that would be a real disaster.
I can see terrorists entering and the gate not opening for the good guys to leave or the police to enter.
Or a fire, same scene.
Not good at all.

sheehan and ritter, and the owner of jus. are in my opinion , not to be called Americans.
I understand how you feel.
A must read on Paris riots:
A snipped portion from the middle of article:
Media accounts have generally overlooked that the riots erupted
days after sensational claims that French police were investigating
plans by a group of Islamic extremists to attack targets in Paris.
The accounts claimed the group was recruiting French citizens to
train in the Middle East and return home to carry out terrorist
One French official said the extremists were using an
"underground railroad" through Syria to bring European and
Middle Eastern citizens in and out of Iraq. An anonymous senior
French law enforcement official said that French citizens had
undergone terrorist training at camps in Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon.
"There's always been an enormous jihad zone to train people to
fight in their country of origin," the official said. "We saw it
Afghanistan, in Bosnia, in Kosovo, and now we're seeing it in
He said the French cell under investigation "is linked with
networks in Iraq, right now, through an individual based in Syria.
Now we're finding camps in Syria and Lebanon, and it's the same
pattern, training in explosives and chemical weapons, which is an
obsession of the jihadists."
In a recent television interview, Sarkozy, called the terror risk for
Paris "very high," adding, ''We know that there are about 10 young
Frenchmen in Iraq, ready to become kamikazes."
"One asks himself why a certain number of young French people
are in Pakistan in religious schools," Sarkozy said. "It's not normal
that an individual who lives in our neighborhoods leaves all of a
sudden for four months in Afghanistan, three months in Syria. We
want to know who is going where, for how long, and when they
come back." (Boston Globe, Oct. 19)
You'd think, but it is likely that they are relying upon the MSM they are going to (continue) to be grossly uninformed.
Good find! Thanks for posting that. I think there are a whole bunch of people using each other to continue the violence. The jihadists would be fools not to take advantage of the situation.
I am praying that none of us were in the tornado zone early this morning. Please please, if you can, check in so we know that you are safe!
It is so late in the season for tornado's and for it to hit at 2 am is just so out of character.
Praying that there will not be more casualties than have already been reported.
pardon all spelling and grammar please, just now having that first cup of coffee.
Well, it's stopped one embassy from getting in and out already. If Ottawa is the "test" area, imagine the implications if used here in certain cities.... They are referring to it in Canada as a "mysterious signal."
Oh yes we can. Idiots, communists, maoists, and faded "stars" who are attempting to usher in The New World Order and a third world USA. Those FEMA camps would be a good place for them to gather together to commiserate IMHO. Bandanas around the neck (che style) for the revolutionaries - now that's a look - the look of a traitor advocating government overthrow.
In fact, the United Arab Emirates actually holds the deed to CAIR's headquarters located here in the shadow of the U.S. Capitol, as documented in the chapter, "The Dark Lair of CAIR." Your readers can check out the deed on sperryfiles.com. So you can't trust what CAIR saysso why is anyone in Washington still listening to it, let alone letting it lecture us about how to run our terrorism investigations? And why in the world are we letting CAIR, a group trying to Islamize the American workplace, partner up with the EEOC to solicit discrimination lawsuits from Muslims? That's right, EEOC has even sent its lawyers into mosques to solicit workplace-bias complaints, as detailed in the chapter, "Wudu in the Restroom."
Thanks for posting that interesting piece of information. I'm sure it was dismissed as a non-credible source.

Muslim Female Fighters: An Emerging Trend
Muslim women are increasingly joining the global jihad, some motivated by religious conviction to change the plight of Muslims under occupation, and recruited by al-Qaeda and local terrorist groups strained by increased arrests and deaths of male operatives. Attacks by female fighters, also known as the mujahidaat, are arguably more deadly than those conducted by male jihadists, attributed in part to the perception that women are unlikely to commit such acts of horror, and when they do, the shock or CNN factor of their attacks draws far greater media attention than male bombers. Increasing awareness with instant media attention can motivate other women to commit similar attacks.
SNIP: Remembering the Muslim "Zebra Killings" MOST SERIAL KILLINGS in America take on a life of their own through movies, books and documentaries. The crimes of Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer and The Son of Sam are still well remembered years after they were committed. Yet there is one set of serial killings that has been almost completely forgotten and is rarely mentioned in popular culture. The Zebra Killings occurred in the San Francisco bay area between 1972 and 1974 and left 71 people dead. They were dubbed the Zebra Killings because of the radio channel used by the police investigating the case (channel Z). The name would take on a more sinister meaning as it became apparent that a group of blacks was systematically stalking and killing whites simply because of the color of their skin.
The majority of the attacks were carried out by five Muslim members of a group within Louis Farrakhans Nation of Islam called the "Death Angels." Jesse Lee Cooks, J.C. Simon, Larry Green, Manuel Moore and Anthony Harris were part of this group which believed that whites were created 3,000 years ago by a black mad scientist named Yacub who wanted a race of inferiors to rule over. Death Angels believed they could earn "points" towards going to heaven when they died if they killed whites. For them, whites were not human beings but "grafted snakes," "blue-eyed devils" and "white mother--------"

Thanks for your comments, checked what Sperry had to say. Could explain at least partially why Bush, Rice, and crowd speak so highly of Islam at every opportunity. Also wonder about Saudi money in peoples' hands, and the possibility of blackmail (regarding parties hosted by Saudis with videos of weird sexual stuff, linked to on the OK Jihad Joel threads).
I have been read the Paris threads for days, and there is very little information about the Islamic connection on most threads. If some of you (who have the time) could perhaps visit some of them and post a few links and info over there, they need it! There's all kinds of info on this thread that needs a wider audience. Think of the lurkers, too.
There are still many denying the Islamic connection; that it's just poor disadvantaged "youths" with no Muslim connection.
Just a thought. I'd try and do something about it (acutally I did copy one article a minute ago on one thread that seriously needed it) but my tech skill are low, very busy today, and not anywhere near as knowledgeable as you regualars on this thread.
Thanks, and Happy Sunday!

Police Find Fuel Bomb Factory Near Paris
By ELAINE GANLEY
Associated Press Writer
PARIS (AP) -- Worsening urban unrest reached central Paris for the
first time early Sunday and youths set ablaze shops, businesses, schools
and nearly 1,300 cars from France's Mediterranean resort towns to the
Some 2,300 police poured into the Paris region to bolster security
overnight while firefighters moved out around the city to douse blazing
vehicles. Police reported nearly 200 arrests nationwide.
Police also found a gasoline bomb-making factory in a rundown building
in Evry, a southern Paris suburb that contained 150 explosives, more
than 100 bottles, gallons of fuel and hoods for hiding rioters' faces,
Jean-Marie Huet, a senior Justice Ministry official, said Sunday.
For the second night in a row, a helicopter equipped with spotlights
and video cameras to track bands of marauding youths combed the Paris
suburbs from the air and small teams of police were deployed to chase down
rioters speeding from one attack to another in cars and on motorbikes.
The violence took a potentially alarming turn with attacks in the
well-guarded French capital. Police said 32 cars were set afire there,
mostly on the northern and southern edges of the city.
Inside the city, three cars were damaged by fire from gasoline bombs
near the Place de la Republique neighborhood, where residents said they
heard a loud explosion and saw flames shooting into the sky.
The violence - originally concentrated in northeastern suburbs of Paris
with large immigrant populations - is forcing France to confront anger
long-simmering in the neighborhoods, where many Arab and African Muslim
immigrants live on society's margins, struggling with unemployment,
poor housing, racial discrimination, crime and a lack of opportunity.
Unrest spread Saturday night across France, extending west to the
rolling fields of Normandy and south to Nice and Cannes on the Mediterranean
The Normandy town of Evreux, 60 miles west of Paris, appeared to suffer
the worst damage. Arsonists burned at least 50 vehicles, part of a
shopping center, a post office and two schools, said Patrick Hamon,
spokesman for the national police.
Five police officers and three firefighters were injured in clashes
with youths in the town, Hamon said.
"Rioters attacked us with baseball bats," Philippe Jofres, a deputy
fire chief from the area told France-2 television. "We were attacked with
pickaxes. It was war."
Fires also were reported in Nantes in the southwest, the Lille region
in the north, and Saint-Dizier in the Ardennes region east of Paris. In
the eastern city of Strasbourg near the German border, 18 cars were set
ablaze, police said.
Seven classrooms went up in flames in the Essonne region south of
The number of cars torched overnight - 1,295 across France - was the
highest since the violence began Oct. 27, France-Info radio and other
French media reported. Police, who earlier put the number at 918, did not
immediately confirm the figure.
The night before, 900 vehicles were burned throughout the country.
The rioting began 10 days ago after two teenagers of north African
Anger was then fanned
anew days ago when a tear gas bomb exploded in a mosque in
Clichy-sous-Bois - the northern suburb where the youths died. (part snipped)
Government officials have held a series of meetings with Muslim
religious leaders, local officials and youths from poor suburbs to try to calm
The director of the Great Mosque of Paris, Dalil Boubakeur, one of the
country's leading Muslim figures, met Prime Minister Dominique de
Villepin on Saturday and urged the government to choose its words carefully
and send a message of peace.
"In such difficult circumstances, every word counts," Boubakeur said.
The anger over the deaths of the teenagers spread to the Internet, with
sites mourning the youths.
Along with messages of condolence and appeals for calm were insults
targeting police, threats of more violence and warnings that the unrest
will feed support for France's anti-immigration extreme right.
Arsonists have also burned grocery stores, video stores and other
businesses in what Hamon called "copycat" crimes. "All these hoodlums see
others setting fires and say they can do it, too."

Suicide bombers on Iran kids' TV
By Toby Harnden, Chief Foreign Correspondent
November 6, 2005
Iranian state television has broadcast a cartoon that glorifies suicide
bombings against Israelis, depicting a young boy blowing himself up
after being told: "Go and show the Zionists how brave and heroic are the
children of Palestine."
The cartoon, one of a series shown by the Islamic Republic of Iran
Broadcasting on "Jerusalem Day" nine days ago, presents the actions of a
boy who kills himself to strike back against Israelis as a noble example
for children to follow.
More professionally produced and graphic than previous Iranian
propaganda aimed at children, the cartoon appears to be part of a campaign led
by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to elevate the issue of the
destruction of Israel. The day before the cartoon was shown, he declared at a
World Without Zionism conference: "This stain of disgrace [Israel] will be
wiped off the face of the world - and this is attainable."
His comments were greeted with outrage in the West and prompted Tony
Blair to suggest that military action might be required against Iran if
progress towards a nuclear bomb continued.
At the start of the 10-minute animated film, translated into English by
the Middle East Media Research Institute (Memri), Abd al-Rahman, a
Palestinian youth, watches as Israeli soldiers murder his family.
They are depicted laughing as they strike his mother in the face with a
rifle butt and then shoot his father, whose blood splashes the oranges
on the trees he cultivated.
Abd comforts his sister and weeps, declaring: "Oh God, I must take
revenge upon these bloodthirsty aggressors, who murdered my father, mother
and brother." His cousin Karim introduces him to a neighbour's son,
Jassem, who is a member of a "resistance group".
Jassem instructs the boys to take part in an attack against Israeli
soldiers, applauding their "deep faith" and telling them that they "may
become martyrs". Abd's aunt bids the boys a tearful farewell. "God
willing, you'll be successful," she says. "Go, my children. Go and show the
Zionists how brave and heroic are the children of Palestine."
As he lies in wait, Abd ties a string of grenades around his waist. The
convoy approaches and the cartoon shows satanic-faced Israeli soldiers
sitting in a lorry around an ammunition box decorated with a Star of
Abd shouts, "I place my trust in God. Allah Akbar", pulls the grenade
pins and leaps onto the lorry. When the smoke clears, the bodies of Abd,
the Israeli troops and the attackers are strewn around the road.
A young Palestinian boy then walks over to Abd's body, takes his
bloodstained keffiyeh head-dress, drapes it over his own shoulders and walks
off into the sunset.
Dan Shaham, a spokesman for the Israeli embassy in London, said: "This
phenomenon of inciting children to commit suicide attacks is revolting.
It corrupts young minds and makes sure conflict continues. President
Ahmadinejad is not only dangerous in the here-and-now but the Iranian
extremist ideology is affecting future generations. Something needs to be
The Iranian embassy declined to comment. Last week, it emerged that
Mohammad Hossein Adeli, Iran's ambassador to Britain, was being recalled
to Teheran in a worldwide purge of about 40 Iranian diplomats ordered by
Ali Ansari, an Iranian analyst at St Andrew's University, said the
cartoon was "gory stuff" and different from previous anti-Israeli
propaganda. "It's interesting they've gone to these lengths to develop a cartoon
like this that is obviously directed towards kids.
"Anti-Zionism is one of the ideological pillars of the Islamic
republic. But Ahmadinejad's comments went beyond the standard ideological diet,
because by implication they applauded suicide bombers and condemned
anyone who makes peace with Israel."
This was the equivalent of trying to be "more Catholic than the Pope",
he said, because the Palestinians now accepted that there must be a
two-state solution to the Middle East conflict - in contrast to President
Ahmadinejad's policy of destroying Israel and replacing it with a new
A spokesman for Memri said that the cartoon was one of 10 being
translated. In another, Palestinian children throw aubergines at Israeli
soldiers who think they are being attacked with grenades and flee.
Such naive propaganda fits in with Mr Ahmadinejad's simplistic world
view and is likely to alienate most ordinary Iranians who, as Shia
Persians, rather than Sunni Arabs, are far from fixated on the Palestinian
"Ahmadinejad is not a shrewd political operator," said Dr Ansari. "Most
Iranians want to focus on domestic problems and this [his anti-Israeli
stance] is alarming the international community and creating huge
anxiety in Iran."
A British diplomat in London said: "The increase in anti-Israeli
propaganda and Ahmadinejad's dangerous rhetoric will only serve to alienate
him from his people and further isolate Iran. For the West, as well as
Israel, the prospect of this man having his finger on a nuclear button
is truly horrifying."

Al-Qaeda woos recruits with nuclear bomb website
November 6, 2005
Uzi Mahnaimi and Tom Walker
AN Al-Qaeda website containing detailed instructions in Arabic on how
to make nuclear, "dirty" and biological bombs has attracted more than
57,000 hits and hundreds of readers' inquiries. Terrorism experts are
warning that the site could be boosting the organisation's appeal to
would-be assassins in Britain and abroad.
The manual, posted on October 6 on a forum titled Al-Firdaws, or
Paradise, contains 80 pages of instructions and pictures of kitchen
bomb-making techniques. It is divided into nine lessons under the overall
heading The Nuclear Bomb of Jihad and the Way to Enrich Uranium, and is
dedicated as a "gift to the commander of the jihad fighters, Sheikh Osama
Bin Laden, for the purpose of jihad for the sake of Allah".
As well as describing how to make a nuclear bomb from enriched uranium
-- impossible for the layman -- the manual explains how to make simple
bombs that can blow up anything from electrical generators to petrol
The site encourages its readers to look for materials such as radium,
which it says is an "effective alternative to uranium and available on
the market". It is unclear who the author is or where he is based: he
describes himself simply as "Layth al-Islam", or the "Lion of Islam",
belonging to a group called "the Black Flags".
"Fight them so that Allah will punish them at your hands and will put
them to shame and will give you victory over them," he writes, quoting
the Koran. "Perhaps nuclear weapons represent a technology of the 1940s.
However, the Crusaders, the allies of the Satan, Allah's curse be upon
them, insist on depriving the jihad fighters of the right to have these

But actually, these are no more than words. When Sarkozy speak about being strong, he is not at all, and he
has not done anything to put in practice what he tells.
Another problem with Sarkozy is that he is the one who has given a huge political power to Islamist by
creating an official Muslim Organization.
Why hasn't the French government called out their Army to restore order? One possible reason for reticence:
A substantial number of French Army soldiers are Muslims and their loyalty is in doubt.
A large chunk of France's ethnic immigrants come from the country's former North African colonies. Many
have failed to break away from low-income housing projects, and experts say they are often marginalized in
terms of educational opportunities and jobs.
Today, these ethnic immigrants represent between 10-20 percent of French soldiers, a figure that is growing,
the French Institute report notes.
The French government tries to hide data about crime rates by race and other race-related information. So it
is hard to know how many French soldiers are Muslim. I recently came across a claim that 23% of French
military recruits are Muslim. Anyone come across better information on the ethnic make-up of the French
military? That correspondent says the Muslim recruits are rebellious and religious and cultural clashes
routinely play out in French military barracks. But a recent report by a French research institute improbably
claims that the North Africans in the French military are just as patriotic toward France as are
M. Bertossi reported that beur soldiers feel "just as patriotic as the rest" and are especially motivated in the
struggle against terrorism, which they see as a slur on Islam. But the loyalty of the French-Islamic troops
was "constantly questioned" by their officers and comrades.
While some Muslims undoubtedly feel the way Bertossi claims quite a few do not. I bet top French policy
makers have doubts about whether French Army Muslim soldiers would obey orders if sent out to restore
order in the Muslim suburbs around Paris.
The Brussels Journal web log has a lot of coverage of the effects of Muslim immigration on European
society. The French government also doesn't want to call out the Army because to do so would be an
admission of the scale of the problem.
The latter, however, is unlikely to happen. If the politicians bring in the army they are acknowledging what
the policemen, the fire fighters and the ambulance drivers know but what the political and media
establishment wants to hide from the people: that there is civil war brewing and that Europe is in for a long
period of armed conflict. This is the last thing appeasing politicians want to do and so they have begun to
Of course by failing to quickly and ruthlessly put down the rebellion the French government is allowing it to
spread so that it really ends up looking far larger. French media censorship can not hide all this from the
That previous post also relays reports about "no-go" zones in Belgian and Swedish cities where Muslim
immigrant groups keep out fire fighters, rescue vehicles, and even police.
Paris-based Iranian writer Amir Taheri reports that some Muslims want to create their own local
sovereignties free from French sovereign government control.
Some are even calling for the areas where Muslims form a majority of the population to be reorganized on the
basis of the "millet" system of the Ottoman Empire: Each religious community (millet) would enjoy the right to
organize its social, cultural and educational life in accordance with its religious beliefs.
In parts of France, a de facto millet system is already in place. In these areas, all women are obliged to wear
the standardized Islamist "hijab" while most men grow their beards to the length prescribed by the sheiks.
The radicals have managed to chase away French shopkeepers selling alcohol and pork products, forced
"places of sin," such as dancing halls, cinemas and theaters, to close down, and seized control of much of
the local administration.

French rioters open fire on police, 10 hurt

GRIGNY, France, Nov 6 (Reuters) - Rioters fired shots at police in an 11th night of riots in France on Sunday, injuring 10 policemen, two of them seriously, police said.
Some 200 youths were lobbing stones and other objects at police in Grigny, south of Paris, a police spokesman said, adding that some of the rioters had fired at officers with shotguns, hitting 10 policemen.
Two officers were being treated in hospital, one with lead shot wounds to the throat, the other with wounds to a leg.
Asked whether the rioters could have killed someone, the spokesman said: "Probably not at this distance, but they could have caused bad injuries, or turn one of the officers blind."
The fresh violence came just hours after President Jacques Chirac vowed to restore order, making his first public comments since the riots started in Paris's poor suburbs on Oct. 27.
"The Republic is quite determined, by definition, to be stronger than those who want to sow violence or fear," Chirac said after a domestic security council met to respond to the violence in which thousands of cars have gone up in flames.
"The law must have the last word," Chirac said.
Rioting began with the accidental electrocution of two youths apparently fleeing police. Their deaths ignited frustration among ethnic minorities over racism, unemployment, police treatment and their marginal place in French society.
The riots have spread from Paris's bleak suburbs to other French cities. Towns such as Toulouse, Nantes and Strasbourg were hit by violence on Sunday.

Bin Laden wants whites
No surprise here. From the UK's Sun tabloid, with thanks to Bryce:
AL-QAEDA are recruiting WHITE terrorists to attack the West, it was revealed yesterday.
Osama Bin Ladens fanatics reckon they can avoid detection more easily.
Six websites with known links to al-Qaeda are carrying recruiting appeals and terrorist training manuals in ENGLISH.

OPINION: Unless the French grow huevos and put into effect a ZERO TOLERANCE policy NOW; there should be updates for at least another month or so.
