    (AFP) He is the brother of jihadist Mohamed Merah, who four years ago killed three soldiers and four Jews, but in his extremist, anti-Semitic family it is Abdelghani who is seen as the black sheep. Abdelghani Merah has light brown eyes, a shaven head and a surname immediately associated with terror in France, but after losing everything because of his brother's acts he has found a calling: de-radicalizing youngsters drawn to jihad. In an interview with AFP, he says he will never forget the morning in March 2012 when he turned on the television and recognized the street where his...

    Over the last six years, I have met many different kinds of people. I have met the radicals, the impartials, and the unsure. I have met people who range all across the spectrum between 'choice' and life. A common trend I have seen, both in those who consider themselves pro-life and those who advocate for abortion, is the inclusion of the rape exception in their beliefs. I often hear people say things such as, "I think abortion is wrong, except in extreme cases like rape." Let me begin addressing this issue by summarizing what we know about the unborn: they are alive and they are human. These are...

    The Constitutional rights of an entire town were violated Friday, April 19, 2013. The Constitution was put out of order, deactivated by an undeclared state of exception, -- complete with "papers please" searches and seizures and military hardware and weapons all over the streets.
  • Native American tribe given permit to kill bald eagles (for religious purposes)

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. – The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has taken the unusual step of issuing a permit allowing an American Indian tribe in Wyoming to kill two bald eagles for religious purposes. The agency's decision comes after the Northern Arapaho Tribe filed a federal lawsuit last year contending the refusal to issue such permits violates tribal members' religious freedom. Although thousands of American Indians apply for eagle feathers and carcasses from a federal repository, permits allowing the killing of bald eagles are exceedingly rare, according to both tribal and legal experts on the matter.

    The purpose of FreeRepublic.com's multiple message boards is to limit the topics for each board to particular topics. Posting the same message on all the boards defeats the purpose of multiple-boards for special topics. It is very annoying to see the same message on every bulletin board. PLEASE!

    Others may have sympathized on learning that Hamid Dabashi, a professor of Middle East studies at Columbia University, felt threatened by a graduate student at his own university, but not me. The incident began late on Sept. 27, 2004, when Victor Luria, a Ph.D. candidate in genetics and a former soldier in the Israel Defense Forces, wrote Dabashi an e-mail taking strong exception to what Dabashi had written about the IDF in an article, "For a Fistful of Dust: A Passage to Palestine," he published in the Egyptian newspaper, Al-Ahram. In response, Luria wrote to Dabashi: I have rarely seen...

    <p>SACRAMENTO, Calif (AP) - Republican governors and legislators across the nation, facing big budget deficits and soft economic conditions, have reluctantly turned to tax hikes to solve their problems. But not in California.</p> <p>In the Golden State, where Democrats rule, a staunch minority of Republican lawmakers have held up adoption of the state budget for three weeks by refusing to accept any new taxes.</p>
