Thread 4



Since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, our nation has fought a global war against violent extremists who use terrorism as their weapon of choice, and who seek to destroy our free way of life. Our enemies seek weapons of mass destruction and, if they are successful, will likely attempt to use them in their conflict with free people everywhere. Currently, the struggle is centered in Iraq and Afghanistan, but we will need to be prepared and arranged to successfully defend our nation and its interests around the globe for years to come. DOD

Our enemies include all the Muslims who dream of knocking Western Civilization off its perch atop humanity’s dung heap. Islam is fractured into any number of sects, tribes and ethnic groups, but the dream of destroying us cuts across all the fault lines. Islamic terrorists are merely the tip of a very large spear.

J. Peter Mulhern, the American Thinker, September 18

The determination behind that fight is real, the hatred is real, and the excuses for doing this are very real in the minds of those who have decided to walk that path. We can respond in two ways: Try to ignore or negotiate with people who do not want to negotiate in good faith, because what they want is our destruction, or to stand up against the darkness of those who see all of us, our way of life, our culture and our aspirations as something worth eliminating.

Either: "And God willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world without the United States and Zionism," Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Or: "With vigilance, determination, courage, we will defeat the enemies of freedom, and we will leave behind a more peaceful world for our children and our grandchildren." GW Bush.

Here's where I will post news and info about the Long War. Let me know if you're interested.

Good morning Workerbee...

Another early-early work day today, so just have a bit of time...

Found this one, though — follow-up on an item I posted a day or so ago....

Iran: U.S.-Iranian Scholar Reportedly Sent To Tehran’s Evin Prison (Haleh Esfandiari)
Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty ^ | May 9, 2007

Posted on 05/10/2007 3:09:09 AM CDT by HAL9000

May 9, 2007 (RFE/RL) — Iranian officials have jailed a prominent American-Iranian scholar after banning her departure from the country, according to the U.S.-based Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
Haleh Esfandiari, the director of the Middle East program at the Wilson Center in Washington, had undergone periodic interrogations by Iranian intelligence officials for four months before being taken to Tehran’s Evin prison on May 8, according to center President and Director Lee Hamilton.

Wilson Center Details The Case

Iranian officials have not commented on Esfandiari’s reported arrest, and it is unclear whether she has been formally charged with any offense.

Hamilton told reporters that Esfandiari, a dual Iranian-U.S. citizen who has lived in the United States for more than 25 years, had called her 93-year-old mother after being detained by the Iranian Intelligence Ministry.

Esfandiari had been under virtual house arrest since December 30, when, according to the Wilson Center, three masked gunmen ambushed her taxi and stole her luggage — including her Iranian and U.S. passports — while she was heading to Tehran airport for her departure to Washington.

Esfandiari was sent to the ministry for interrogation when she applied for a new Iranian passport, according to the Wilson Center’s statement.

“Esfandiari said that most questions focused on her work and that the answers were public information,” the statement said.

She was then repeatedly summoned for interrogation by intelligence officials about U.S. plans relating to Iran. Upon reporting to the Intelligence Ministry again on May 8, Esfandiari was reportedly taken to Evin prison.

Hamilton, who served more than three decades as a Democratic Congressman, said that during her interrogations, Esfandiari was pressured to make false confessions or to falsely implicate the Wilson Center in activities in which it had no role. He said Esfandiari was contacted again several days ago and asked to “cooperate” with Intelligence Ministry officials, a request that she refused.

Crackdown Prompted By U.S. Actions?

Esfandiari’s imprisonment is the latest detention of an Iranian intellectual or journalist with dual nationality. Some observers blame such arrests on Iranian government fears that the United States is seeking to encourage “soft subversion” to undermine the government in Tehran. In 2006, the Bush administration approved a $75 million program to promote democracy in Iran.

Iran has subsequently cracked down on nongovernmental groups, human rights activists, trade unions, and women’s rights advocates. Iranian officials have accused some such groups of planning to kick-start a “velvet revolution.”

Efforts by Iranian authorities to intimidate scholars and intellectuals appear to be part of the government in Tehran’s response to the perceived pressure.

In January, Iranian security officials seized the passport of Radio Farda broadcaster Parnaz Azima upon her arrival in Tehran to visit her ailing mother in the hospital. Azima, also a dual Iranian-U.S. citizen, has been under virtual arrest since then. No charges have been filed against Azima, according to her attorney, Mohammad Hossein Aghassi.

Ramin Jahanbegloo , an Iranian-Canadian philosopher, was arrested by Iranian officials in 2006 on charges of “acting against national security.” He was released in August after issuing a confession in which he says his participation in international conferences might have served the interests of the “enemy.”

In 2003, Dariush Zahedi, an Iranian-American lecturer at the University of California at Berkeley, was detained in Iran for nearly four months on charges of spying for the United States. He was eventually released on bail of approximately $250,000.

Military Option On The Table

Esfandiari’s detention comes against a backdrop of heightened tensions between Tehran and Washington. U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on May 8 that President George W. Bush would keep a military option on the table as he sought a diplomatic solution to a lingering standoff with Iran.

Rice told Al-Arabiya television that Bush “will not abandon the military option,” adding that she “believe[s] that we do not want him to do so.”

The UN Security Council has imposed two sets of sanctions on Iran in its effort to convince Tehran to halt uranium enrichment. Iranian officials have rejected such pressure, saying their country’s nuclear program is its “right” and is aimed solely at producing electricity.

U.S. officials have also accused Iran of funding and arming insurgent groups in Iraq, a charge that Iran has dismissed.

” Ahmanutjob wants to be bombed sooner than later “

Apparently, he’s gonna have to work at it harder than this — this incident is being talked about by the NGO’s but not the Bush administration. And the “Former FBI” guy of a couple of months ago was fobbed off with a short series of non-statements by some State Department Assistant Junior Undersecretary of Paper-Clip-Counting....

I took a long nap this afternoon. I have a dog that insists on getting me up at 2 to go outside! Didn’t go to sleep until after midnight because I was watching stupid anime cartoons on Cartoon Network, and I had to get up at 5.

But I am now awake...Bought my new chest freezer before I went to sleep, and it’s getting delivered tomorrow.

Sunni and Shi’ite leaders in the state of Michigan which has one of the largest Arab-American communities in the US signed a pact Thursday affirming their commitment to speak out against conflicts between the two Islamic sects.

The “Intra-Faith Code of Honor” is designed to decrease the likelihood of the sectarian tensions between Sunnis and Shi’ites in war-ravaged Iraq from occurring in the US. The Detroit-area is home to about 300,000 Arab-Americans, including many Iraqi immigrants.

“The meeting was to come together, particularly with all the rumors and speculation that there are problems,” said Victor Ghalib Begg, chairman of the Council of Islamic Organizations of Michigan. “It’s important that we celebrate our diversity and have a good system in place in case something does happen.”

Under the code, local Muslim leaders from each sect have pledged not to say disparaging things about the other.

Olmert Wants to Testify Again

(IsraelNN.com) Aides to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Thursday that Olmert wants to testify before the Winograd Commission a second time. Much of the criticism against Olmert was based on testimony from Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, they said, and Olmert did not agree with her version of events. According to the aides, Olmert wants to testify again in order to set things straight. Livni told the commission about things that “never, ever were,” one aide said.

As an example, Livni told the commission that she pushed for a diplomatic solution from the beginning, and warned Olmert to make sure fighting ended quickly on the second day of the war. Olmert argues that the conversation Livni mentioned never took place, and that Livni did not speak of a political goal to the fighting until much later.
