    Whenever someone asks me a question, I first have to think, “What kind of a box has this guy trapped me in?” Then I can deconstruct the box. If the box dissolves, there goes the question. If it doesn’t dissolve, I better listen up. The guy’s got a point.

    The Harrison County School board has a problem, a whole lot of questions and very, very few answers. Two civil liberties groups sued the board last month over its decision not to remove a picture of Jesus from Bridgeport High School. "And I do not want to spend taxpayers' dollars, says school board member Sally Cann. "But even if we have a free organization, does that make them the best organization to represent us? I don't think so, necessarily. I mean, I don't know how to go about it." This comes after six groups have offered free legal counsel to...

    Moscow, August 9, Interfax - Russia’s Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar believes the Earth will soon see the coming a Messiah to reward everyone according to his deserts. ‘We know that he (Messiah - IF) is very near at hand, but he needs not only to be born but also to come. The Messiah may well have been born already, but unless he is ordered by God he cannot reveal himself with God’s help and change the world for the better’, the rabbi said in an interview published by the Gazeta daily on Tuesday. Lazar explained this assumptions about the imminent...

    AUSTRALIA should agree to host a Middle East peace summit, showcasing itself as a model multicultural nation, one of the world's most influential Jewish leaders has said. American Jewish Committee chief executive David Harris, who will meet John Howard today, also believes Australia should nudge Indonesia and Malaysia towards formal ties with Israel. Mr Harris, a close friend of former US president Bill Clinton, believes Australia's good relations with the Arab world and its long-standing support for Israel make it an ideal player in the effort to establish concord between Israel and the Palestinians. "It has a certain credibility when...
  • The Jews have a mission: Judeo-Christian values

    Ask believing Christians – probably from as young as 8 years of age – what their mission as Christians is, and it is overwhelmingly likely they will answer, "to bring people to Christ" or "spread the Gospel." Ask any non-Christian what the Christian mission is, and you will get the same answer. Just about everyone, Christian or non-Christian, knows the Christian mission. Now ask any Jew, religious or secular, "What is the Jewish mission?" and the most likely response will be: "What do you mean?" Most religious Jews rarely talk about a Jewish mission. Rather, they are preoccupied with survival:...

    Iran is planning to mount a staunch defense of its nuclear energy program at an international conference beginning today and will insist on rights to the same technology afforded to all members of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), a senior Iranian official said in an interview yesterday. The high-level counteroffensive, to be led by Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi, comes in anticipation of a tough speech the Bush administration is preparing to give today calling for international measures against Tehran unless it gives up sensitive aspects of its nuclear program.

    The Daily Telegraph ^ | April 28, 2005 | Correspondents in Jerusalem
    RUSSIAN President Vladimir Putin became today the first Kremlin leader in history to visit Israel, but there was a cool reaction to his idea for a major regional peace conference. The proposal for a Middle East peace conference, Israeli concern over Russian nuclear cooperation with Iran, and bitter opposition to Moscow's planned sale of anti-aircraft weapons to Syria were expected to top the agenda. Flying to Israel from a two-day visit to Egypt, Mr Putin travelled to holy sites in Jerusalem, where he was meeting tomorrow with Israeli President Moshe Katsav and Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. On Friday, Mr Putin...

    FAST-PACED diplomacy is gripping the Middle East, with peace brokers and truce makers crossing paths as the region's zones of crisis begin to interact. Even as a critical high-level meeting of Palestinian hardline factions opened in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, moderate Arab leaders were in Damascus and Washington, and the heads of world powers closely involved in the Middle Eastern jigsaw gathered in Jerusalem for the opening of a new Holocaust museum. These contacts reflect the growing sense in the Arab realm that a hinge time has arrived, when breakthroughs to a new era of democracy lie close at hand...

That's what Carrie Devorah wants to know after she inadvertently photographed some mysterious blue light images hovering heavenward while taking pictures of the lighting of the Chabad menorah on the first night of Hanukkah on the Ellipse in the nation's capital.

    Guardian/UK ^ | 12/11/02 | Suzanne Goldenberg in Washington
    The former US president, Jimmy Carter, marked his elevation to the status of Nobel peace laureate yesterday by chiding President Bush on his doctrine of pre-emptive war, and urging him to respect the UN's role in Iraq. The comments, delivered at the Nobel awards ceremony in Oslo, were the second time that the award has been used as a vehicle for criticism of US preparations for a possible war on Saddam Hussein. In a speech that deplored the emergence of terror and sectarian conflict since the end of the cold war, Mr Carter said the United Nations - though flawed...

    Capitol Hill (CNSNews.com) - Results from the congressional inquiry into alleged intelligence failures leading up to the 9/11 terrorist attacks released Wednesday indicate a number of systemic problems with U.S. intelligence gathering, analysis, sharing, and response. The report was introduced with a somber warning from the co-chairman of the Joint House-Senate Intelligence Committee probe. "It is almost a certainty that, in the coming months, Americans will face another attempted terrorist assault; an assault that could quite possibly be on the same scale as that of September the 11th, 2001," Sen. Bob Graham (D-Fla.). "It is a certainty that such an...

    An overwhelming majority of people in the United States, 91 percent, say they do not believe Iraq gave a full and accurate accounting of all weapons of mass destruction in a weekend report to the United Nations, a survey released Wednesday says. But the public wants the United States to be patient. The CNN-USA Today-Gallup poll showed a majority, 66 percent, want the United States to wait for U.N. inspectors to find evidence of such weapons before deciding to invade Iraq.The poll suggested public doubts about whether the U.N. inspectors will be able to find any such weapons that Iraq...
  • Dream of Palistine

    12/11/2002 8:07:06 PM PST · by doulau · 23 replies · 346+ views
    A newly released best-selling novel for teens, Rever la Palestine (Dream of Palestine), sympathetically portrays a young Palestinian who becomes a suicide bomber. The fifteen-year-old Egyptian author, Randa Ghazi, who lives with her family in Italy, writes about Palestinian teenagers who fight "bloodthirsty Jews, who assassinate children and old people, profane mosques, and rape Arab women." Dream of Palestine is being touted as 'surprisingly mature' and 'a great text of suffering and hope.' One of the novel's heroes calls for Jihad against the Jews who are 'a doomed people' and to 'kill all Israelis.' The main character is encouraged 'to...

    Arab News ^ | 2002-12-12 | By Dr. Abdul Qader Tash
    The American writer Grace Halsell did not exaggerate when she said that Christian Zionists in Washington were more dangerous than the Zionist lobby. In 1989, Muhammad Sammak translated Halsell’s book “Prophecy and Politics” into Arabic. The book discussed the dangers posed by militant Christian fundamentalists to the Arab world but Arab policy-makers did not pay much attention to her warnings. Though a few Arab writers have written about the dangerous course taken by religious fundamentalists in the US, serious efforts have yet to be made to warn the Muslim and Arab public about the increasing influence of the anti-Muslim religious...

    Slate ^ | 11/7/02 | Christopher Hitchens
    Part of the charm of the regime-change argument (from the point of view of its supporters) is that it depends on premises and objectives that cannot, at least by the administration, be publicly avowed. Since Paul Wolfowitz is from the intellectual school of Leo Strauss—and appears in fictional guise as such in Saul Bellow's novel Ravelstein—one may even suppose that he enjoys this arcane and occluded aspect of the debate. For those lacking a similar gift for hidden meanings, the best way to appreciate the unstated case for war may be to examine the criticisms leveled by its opponents. These...
