Okay, that was a bit dramatic, but true, none the less. I still think you have the best wit on FR.
Thank you for that.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad praised his country's ability to recruit "hundreds of suicide bombers a day," saying "suicide is an invincible weapon."
Ahmadinejad made the comments during a visit to a site south Iran used to prepare suicide bombers during the Iraq-Iran war, Iranian state television reported.
He praised Hizbullah fighters for their suicidal spirit during last summer's confrontation with Israel.
"Suicide bombers in this land showed us the way, and they enlighten our future," he said.
The Iranian president said the will to commit suicide was "one of the best ways of life."

The Christian victims of Iraq (Christians being crucified in Iraq)
Telegraph ^ | March 31 2007 | Damian Thompson

Holy Week is a time when Christians think of the crucifixion of Jesus. This year, they should also be meditating on another crucifixion: that of a 14-year-old boy, nailed to a cross by Islamists in Iraq.
This diabolical crime was part of a campaign by jihadists to extinguish one of the most ancient Christian Churches in the world, that of the Assyrians. Thanks to the indifference of the West, the campaign is going jolly well.

"Gang focus now on immigrants-Feds, county plan to deport criminals[LAPD]"

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "As the LAPD cracks down on the city's most violent street gangs, federal and county officials have launched their own campaigns to apprehend and deport gangsters who are in the county illegally.
For the first time, federal immigration officers are tracking incarcerated gang members, and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is creating a database of gang members who are in the U.S. illegally. The FBI is also strengthening its ties to international police agencies and hopes to create a gang intelligence center in El Salvador."
Man arrested for impersonating officer
Apr 1, 2007
The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have a person in custody after a man was caught on camera at Mississauga's Trillium Health Centre dressed as a police officer. Officers from the OPP Orillia detachment took a 23-year-old man from Ramara Township into custody last night, said OPP Const. Dave Woodford. The man was arrested after police made a deal with his lawyer, the officer added.
Police said the man was spotted at seven GTA hospital emergency rooms over a 24-hour period, beginning Friday evening. He was allegedly wearing an authentic OPP uniform and carrying an air-pistol in his holster. The man raised suspicions among hospital staff after asking several strange and "disturbing" questions, police said.
The man faces four charges, including impersonating a peace officer. At this time, his name is not being released.

Suspect has been arrested in the hospitals/phony cop case.
Dubai, 30 March 2007 - Osama bin Laden's son, Saad bin Laden, and a number of leaders of the al-Qaeda terrorist network are in Iran, according to a group of terrorism experts featured in a programme on the Arabic satellite television channel Al Arabiya. The programme, entitled "The Death Factory, is expected to air on Friday evening. The programme is part of a weekly series that examines Islamic terrorism and armed groups active in Iraq and other warzones.
According to these experts, the leader of al-Qaeda's old guard have either been arrested or are free but under the surveillance of Iranian authorities.
Among these al-Qaeda members is Saad bin Laden, as well as Sayf al-Adel, the former spokesperson of the group, as well as Suleyman Abu al-Ghaith, Muhammad Shouki al-Islambuli and other Arab terrorists.
According to a researcher at the Centre for Arab-Iranian Studies in London, Nuri Zadah, all these al-Qaeda members are believed to be in Iran since the fall of the hardline Taliban regime in Afghanistan in late 2001. This opinion was shared by the Egyptian researcher, Abdel Rahim Ali, who also noted that the former al-Qaeda spokesman, Kuwaiti, Suleyman Abu al-Ghaith, is in Iran because his government refused the offer by the Iranian authorities to send him to Kuwait City.

"'Walking dead' cross line into Afghanistan to kill"
By Philip Smucker
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
April 2, 2007
ARTICLE SNIPPET: "KHOST, Afghanistan -- Gazing out at the wheat fields, a haggard police chief pointed to the distant goat paths leading from Pakistan's territory of North Waziristan. Known here as "Osama bin Laden's children" or "the walking dead," nearly two dozen suicide bombers entered Khost province over those paths in the past year."
ARTICLE SNIPPET: "As elsewhere in the Islamic world, al Qaeda is usually a facilitator of terrorism, rarely the direct instigator. Bin Laden's operatives exploit anti-American sentiment within home-grown Islamist groups and dispatch young men over the mountains toward martyrdom.
Al Qaeda and Taliban leaders in nearby Pakistani community of Miram Shah, mimicking similar martyrdom celebrations in the West Bank and parts of the Arab world, throw lavish parties for the families of the suicide bombers."

Jordan sentences 6 to prison for allegedly planning terror attacks
Published: 04.02.07, 13:40 / Israel News
Jordan's military court convicted six alleged militants of planning suicide attacks against Jordan's main international airport and against hotels hosting Israeli and American tourists. None of the attacks were carried out.
The six, who included three fugitives not present at the trial, received jail terms ranging from 15 years to life with hard labor. A seventh man, 48-year-old Iraqi Abdul-Karim Ikhdeir al-Jmeily, was acquitted for lack of evidence. (AP)

"Iraq bomb explodes near school"
A suicide bomber has blown up a truck near a police station and a school in the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk, killing at least 12 people.
More than 130 were injured in the blast, police said.
In other violence, the handcuffed bodies of 19 workers kidnapped north of Baghdad have been found.
US Senator John McCain, leading a congressional delegation to Baghdad, has insisted the US-Iraqi security crackdown in Baghdad is working.
The suicide bomber rammed a truck into concrete barriers surrounding Kirkuk's police criminal investigation department, detonating explosives that had been hidden under a load of flour.
At least 20 children who had been playing at a nearby school were among the wounded, Brig Gen Sarhat Qadir said, but he could not say how many."

"As long as you are hated, it's better to be feared"
By James Lewis
ARTICLE SNIPPET: "Tehran isn't interested in loving the West, or even in tolerating us. If you doubt it, just listen to the Khomeini gang. Since the 1979 they've been yelling "Death to America! Death to Israel!" Have we not heard?
Even while the Brit Left is busily trying to figure out a way to blame America for Tehran's barefaced kidnapping of 15 UK Service personnel, The Telegraph is rediscovering common sense. In an editorial entitled, "If they hate us, let them also fear us" they are drawing the obvious conclusions.
No doubt a lot of Europeans were secretly glad that they were not the target of all that mass hatred. But of course that's simple self delusion. Khomeini and his followers were taught to hate the whole West, including Europe and America --- for its wealth, power, sexual openness, women's liberation, homosexual freedoms, capitalism, Christianity, its free press, its Marxoid intellectuals, and for conquering Andaluz in 1495. (If you forgot how we conquered Andaluz and drove out the Muslims, Ahmadinejad hasn't. Nor has Osama Bin Laden.)
In fact, Europe has very conveniently blacked out its own history."
"If the Iranians hate us, let them also fear us"
Last Updated: 12:01am BST 31/03/2007
ARTICLE SNIPPET: "It is one thing to be disliked; quite another to be despised. Iran would not have kidnapped our Servicemen without having considered our rules of engagement, our diplomatic isolation and our likely military response, and made a rough calculation of how likely they were to get away with their piracy.
There was a time when British citizenship afforded a degree of protection from foreign harassment."
