    Its a lot to digest. Personally I downloaded the entire thing to my hard drive (minus the comments) so I can print and study it further point by point. I'm already familiar with most of the information, but thought this was especially well 'put together' and even includes some stuff that's 'new' to me. Thanks.

    Sharon cannot allow this to come about...

    ... and Sharon holds which US government post again? I keep forgetting. And how many votes in Congress is he getting these days? Ah .. the special oversight committee on foreign affairs, perhaps?

    Of course it is 'kooky', but is that because the presentation of argument is irrational or.... because the reality it is trying to illuminate is indeed insane?

    Its kooky because when you hit people with too much truth all at once, its easier to reject the entire premise with words like 'kooky' than it is to wrap their minds all the around the colossal fraud we've been living for our entire lives.

    Let us put an end to the charade, and call a spade a spade.

    Too many people are using the spades to dig us a deep deep hole. The rest apparently don't know what a spade really is: a bloody shovel.

    You think everybody's on dope.

    Ritalin, prozac, etc. .... yep, there are many more on legal drugs than illegal. The upcoming nightmare we're going to wake up to one day, resulting from the heavy use of PERSCRIBED mind altering drugs is ignored by the drug czar and his minions. One can only conclude that there IS an answer to the question: WHY IS THIS SO?

    There are none so blind as those who will not see.

    There are none so blind as those who never saw a damned thing, but still think they know just exactly what happened.

    They are finally coming home to do damage to the country they were taught to hate.

    Which American has he 'come home' to damage? Have witnesses come forth claiming that he aimed/fired a weapon in anger at ANY American (or any of its allies), in ANY place, at ANY time?

    Thanks. Maybe its (Talmud) available now, but it was NOwhere when I was taking my philosophy of world religion courses and really needed to find it. At that time (about 15 years ago, admittedly) it was about the only religious book that wasn't available at any of the public or university libraries in my city and, of course, I wasn't online yet. I'm glad to hear that's changed and I will make a renewed effort to get it.

    .... and said that until the Zionist movement, Jews had always lived in peace with their neighbors."

    "Rabbi" Weiss is obviously about as ignorant of history as it is possible to be

    What? Are you trying to insinuate that the Jews have never lived in peace with their neighbors?

    Sheesh, school boy. I wasn't suspended, just taking a little break from rampant bigotry and the 'organized palestinian death wish' cheerleaders, (by my own choice).

    PS. I would prefer not TO be suspended at all, now OR in the future, but if limititations to speaking only the beliefs of others become a part of this forum, I would go away of my own volition.

    If you (or anyone else) is/are so threatened by opposing opinions to the degree that dissenting voices would be stilled in this venue ... well then, surely there are others.

    For myself, I grieve that the deaths of innocent children will continue because God has been removed from the hearts of the men who rule the world and their mindless followers.

    Please. Trust me when I tell you that their view is the fringiest fringe. I am not going to give a discourse to show why their opinion is false.

    Right. I trust you. And along with being the fringiest fringe, he's probably the loonatickiest loon too, since you're having such a rough time disputing his statements with anything other than a feeble 'trust me'.

    The fact that this man (as well as many others) is calling for justice for all of mankind seems to bother you.

    There we read that a human based attempt to return en masse to the Holy Land would result in terrifying loss of life.

    While I can't claim to have read the Talmud (due to the fact that I am prevented from so doing ), can you deny that there has been a terrifying loss of life in the Holy Land (on both sides) due to the occupation by the Zionist state and the return of Jews, en masse?

    Here's an excerpt taken from a News Max article published today for you to yawn over:

    'The discovery of a major spy ring inside the United States is straining the already tense relations with Israel. Although, Israel denied any involvement with the penetration of the U.S. wiretap system, the CIA and FBI are investigating the direct government ties to the former Israeli military and intelligence officials now being held by the Justice Department.'

    (alarm clock ringing) Time to wake up, Veronica.

    Ahem ... but weren't computers once 'just another nice government/military project'?

    I think we need to partition off a little land somewhere (east of the mississippi preferably) to create a new state ... we'll call it Denial. Then you'll be able to live in this state both literally and figuratively.

    Whether you admit it or not, the empire is moving to limit and to eventually remove your freedoms as an American, even as it moves to deny life entirely to people who've done you absolutely no harm.

    I guess the term 'vampire' fits OK to describe an entity that apparently thrives on the blood of innocents, although its not the word I'd choose.

    Best I know, Michael Rivero didn't have anything to do with this. Neither did I. We've gotten a trifle off topic and this will be my last post on this subject. I'm not the one saying this technology could be used in this fashion, but obviously someone else isn't so sure.

    The Northrop Grumman Global Hawk is a robotized American military jet that has a wingspan of a Boeing 737. The excerpts below were taken from an article entitled: "Robot plane flies Pacific unmanned," which appeared in the April 24, 2001 edition of Britain's International Television News:
    "The aircraft essentially flies itself, right from takeoff, right through to landing, and even taxiing off the runway," according to the Australian Global Hawk manager Rod Smith.
    A robot plane has made aviation history by becoming the first unmanned aircraft to fly across the Pacific Ocean.
    The American high-altitude Global Hawk spy plane made flew (sic) across the ocean to Australia, defence officials confirmed.
    The Global Hawk, a jet-powered aircraft with a wingspan equivalent to a Boeing 737 [NOTE: two of the aircraft involved in the 911 crashes were Boeing 757s, two were Boeing 767s] flew from Edwards Air Force Base in California and landed late on Monday at the Royal Australian Air Force base at Edinburgh, in South Australia state. . . .
    It flies along a pre-programmed flight path, but a pilot monitors the aircraft during its flight via a sensor suite which provides infra-red and visual images. (http://www.itn.co.uk/news/20010424/world/05robotplane.shtm) Then, on September 20, 2001, The Economist published comments from a former boss of British Airways, Robert Ayling: "On autopilot into the future "Robert Ayling, a former boss of British Airways, suggested in The Financial Times this week that aircraft could be commandeered from the ground and controlled remotely in the event of a hijack ...

    I'm not the Senate. People have questions and they're asking the Senate to investigate and provide the answers. Strange that it would take a citizen petition to get the Senate to investigate the circumstances surrounding what is certainly the hugest attack on America in history, don't you think?

    Gosh Laz, are you giving me credit for writing that petition? Thanks, but I only posted it.

    So okay, I'll give you an easy one: Tell me why the cell phone calls made by passengers on the hijacked flights on 9/11 never emerged on their cell-phone bills.

    Call 911, Laz. Maybe they take you somewhere where the doctors can pull your mind off that one track before the train comes roaring through again. Guess no one ever told you about 'Icky-Gooey'.

    How about giving us your idea of the appropriate US response to the WTC attack?

    How about getting answers to a couple of these questions before launching an all out war against a sovereign nation?

    To: The U.S. Senate

    Petition to the Senate to Investigate Oddities Involving 9/11 Terrorist Attacks

    We, the undersigned, do hereby petition the Senate of the United States of America to thoroughly investigate the events surrounding the acts of terrorism that transpired in the United States on September 11, 2001. Such an investigation would include research into the following peculiarities relating to the terrorist attacks on the United States on 9/11:

    1.) Thousands of put stock options that were purchased on United and American airlines immediately prior to 9/11/01

    2.) Financial transactions totaling more than 100 million dollars that electronically passed through the World Trade Center immediately prior to its destruction on 9/11

    3.) Black-box recordings from the four planes which crashed on 9/11

    4.) Cell phone calls made by passengers on hijacked flights on 9/11 which never emerged on their cell-phone bills

    5.) Interviews of any air-traffic controllers on duty on 9/11

    6.) Eyewitness accounts detailing Flight 93's explosion prior to its crashing

    7.) Aircraft debris strewn approximately seven miles from the crash site of Flight 93

    8.) Unocal's role in its quest to build an oil pipeline across Afghanistan, plans implemented prior to 2001

    9.) Carlyle Corporation's role in overseeing Unocal's quest to have an oil pipeline built across Afghanistan, plans implemented prior to 2001

    10.) Role of remote-control software technology implemented in 9/11 hijackings and crashes

    11.) George W. Bush's possible foreknowledge of the terrorist attacks on 9/11

    12.) Role of the Northern Alliance in explosive growth of opium production in Afghanistan after U.S. military intervention.

    We respectfully petition the Senate to make public the results of this investigation.
