    Almost a month ago, Chechen rebels sent an open letter to the European Parliament complaining that Russians/pro Russian Chechens have kidnapped Maskhadov's relatives: Last week, Russian special services and criminal gangs, supported by the Kremlin and led by the notorious Chechen Kvisling, Kadyrov the younger, took as hostage in Grozny and other cities and villages the family of the President of the Chechen Republic Aslan Maskhadov.

    BEERSHEBA, Israel (Reuters) - There were whispers in the Kremlin and salons of Europe for decades but it was never more than idle gossip until a team of Israeli doctors announced that they had solved an 80-year-old medical mystery. Reuters Photo   The posthumous diagnosis by two psychiatrists and a neurologist recently published in the European Journal of Neurology was that the great Russian revolutionary and Soviet icon Vladimir Lenin died an agonizing death from syphilis. "It's an amazing story, the degeneration of Lenin's mental and neurological state," said psychiatrist Dr Eliezer Witztum. The doctors' diagnosis of crippling neurosyphilis that...

    One young man was in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the waist down. Another walked almost effortlessly on two prosthetic legs. Alex Presman, with a barely noticeable limp, joined them in a meeting with advocates as the three Iraq war veterans pondered their futures. Presman lost his left foot six months ago while in a convoy from Diwanya to Baghdad to pick up medical supplies. He stepped on an explosive device planted in the sand, and his foot was blown off and a baseball-size chunk of flesh was ripped out of his right calf. Shrapnel pierced his legs and arms. He...

    <p>MEE-OWCH! Could a catfight be brewing between "Saturday Night Live" newscaster Tina Fey and right-wing pundit Ann Coulter?</p> <p>While presenting Al Franken with his comedy trophy at yesterday's New York Magazine Awards, Fey lauded the liberal author of "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right" for skewering the likes of Coulter and Bill O'Reilly, adding: "Have you ever seen Ann Coulter in person? It's like seeing a rat. It's like, ewwww!"</p>

    <p>BETTE Midler is annoyed that America has no shame. When the notorious diva appeared on "Larry King Live" she ranted: "Shame has gone missing from our lives, and that's a goddamn shame . . . People used to be ashamed. Now . . . they just say any old thing, do any old thing. I mean, they put porn stars in videos. I mean, I can remember it was only a few years ago where people who were in porn were, you know, considered really fringe people. And now they're working so hard to move it into the mainstream. And I think it's a conspiracy, myself." Speaking of porn stars, when asked about the fame of Paris Hilton, the Divine Miss M sniffs the hotel heiress has done "absolutely nothing!"</p>

    MAVERICK director Larry Clark beat up the distributor for his movie "Ken Park" after the jerk declared that America deserved to get attacked on 9/11. Clark, who helmed "Kids" and "Bully," delivered a brutal beat-down to Hamish McAlpine after the screwy Scotsman started spewing anti-American and anti-Israeli sentiments during dinner at London's posh Charlotte Street Hotel Thursday night. An enraged Clark, 59, punched McAlpine several times in the face - breaking his nose - choked him, then overturned the dinner table on the bloodied big mouth. Clark was arrested by London police - and now McAlpine is pulling "Ken Park"...

    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - In a farewell videotape before Mahmoud el Abed embarked on a suicidal attack, he sat holding hands with his mother, who prayed for him to become a "martyr" as she conferred her blessing. "May every bullet hit its target," she said. When news arrived a day later that her son had died in an attack that killed two Israeli soldiers, Naima el Abed celebrated by ululating and clapping her hands, her friends said. Her son, age 19, was one of several armed Palestinians who launched a shooting attack against the Israeli community of Dugit in...

    (April 14) - "To know the competitiveness, jealousies, chaos and blind chance that prevail in the news business is to realize that an all-media conspiracy is an impossibility. "Yet it is difficult to find a rational explanation for the almost total uniformity with which the media make decisions on the newsworthiness of Israeli events." - David Bar-Illan, "Eye on the Media" Sept. 1994 IT WAS not originally my intention to reprise the column made famous by my predecessor, David Bar-Illan.
