    I love Washington D.C. I've only been there about five times - three of which were in the dead of winter - but I have always enjoyed myself. I like that every building is steeped in historical significance; I'm from San Diego, and we only have one Historical Building in the whole city. Of course, here in Europe, everywhere you turn there is a building founded by monks of the eleventh century, built upon ruins of Roman settlements from 200 BC, restored for use by some prestigious emperor, military hero, or worldly archbishop of the eighteenth century. This puts even...
  • New book teaches you how to beat the &#%^ out of a suspected terrorist

    Just in time for air travelers who may have started to relax a little bit comes a new book suggesting ways that passengers can beat up a suspected terrorist. An airline pilot, a SWAT team commander and a police instructor joined in writing "Never Again: A Self-Defense Guide for the Flying Public." Some of the self-defense techniques discussed in the book include elbow chops, punches to the throat, lip pulls and kicks to the groin. If the bad guy is still breathing after that punishment, you can whack him in the head with a soda can, which the authors describe...
  • Air passengers taught self-defense

    Responding to the air-travel anxieties since 9-11, an American Airlines pilot and two aviation security experts have compiled a book to help passengers and crew defend themselves in the case of a terrorist attack. "Never Again" is a "self-defense guide for the flying public'' with some 200 illustrations of hand-to-hand combat situations that could unfold in an airline cabin. "Unless law enforcement is aboard, passengers and flight attendants are the first line of defense," co-author Mark Bogosian told WorldNetDaily. An American Airlines captain, Bogosian notes that prior to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, flight crews were trained to cooperate with...

    Close to 7,000 Jewish youth are taking part in the annual March of the Living in Poland today. The three-kilometer march between Birkenau and Auschwitz is a commemoration of the Death Marches the Nazis forced Jews to take along that very route in the 1940's. Thousands of Jews perished in three of these Death Marches during the Holocaust years. The March of the Living, a loud proclamation that "Am Yisrael Chai" - the People of Israel still live - takes place each year on Holocaust Martyrs and Heroes Remembrance Day. Most of the young people taking part in the march...

    Young Jews from around the world joined Holocaust survivors on Monday in a march at the former death camp of Auschwitz to mourn millions of Jews killed during World War II by Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany. Some 7,000 people from Israel and more than 20 other countries marched some three kilometres (two miles) from Auschwitz to the remains of crematoria at the nearby Birkenau camp on Holocaust Martyrs and Heroes Day. The route is followed every year in the March of the Living by young Jews, Poles and elderly survivors to remember the six million Jews killed in the Holocaust,...

    Holocaust Remembrance Day will begin with an official state ceremony at 8 PM this evening in Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum. Six Holocaust survivors will light torches, in memory of the more than six million Jews who were massacred in the Nazi Holocaust of 1939-1945. Commemorations will continue tomorrow with a two-minute siren in which almost the entire country will stand in silence or recite a prayer. Yad Vashem is continuing its quest to increase the names of known Holocaust victims. At present, the names of only some three million victims are known. The stories of individual survivors whose families were...

    Speaking to reporters at Yad Vashem on the eve of Holocaust Day, Chief of Staff Lt.Gen. Moshe Ya'alon stressed the importance "to remember and never forget," and to state clearly to the world "never again." At a seminar attended by the top IDF echelon, Ya'alon said Israel is in the midst of fighting a complex battle, one in which the army is required to maintain its morale and qualitative norms. "We will not allow what happened in the past to happen again," he said. Describing the former Hamas leader Abdel Azziz Rantissi as an arch terrorist. "It is important to...

    The sirens of Holocaust Remembrance Day wail tomorrow, April 19, over the destruction of European Jewry, and Israelis will stop in their tracks in silence. After 59 years, as the nation comes to this eerie standstill, what should we be thinking about? For Zionists, the transcending lesson of the Holocaust is that Jews must be strong enough to defend their survival, come what may. If the Shoah was the culmination of Jewish powerlessness, then Israel is the embodiment of Jewish power. It is strength – not supplication – that must guarantee our survival in a hostile environment. That Israel chose...

    Ten years ago, the massacre began in Rwanda. In a country shared by two tribes. Some members of the Hutu tribe rose up against their neighbors and colleagues from the Tutsi tribe and began killing them with whatever weapons were available: pistols, rifles, stones, knives and machetes. Incited by inflammatory radio broadcasts, which also revealed locations where people were hiding, they accused people who refused to participate in the killing of collaborating with their bitter enemies. Within 100 days, the tortured bodies of 800 thousand Tutsi piled up. Eight thousand people were murdered every day, a rate faster than that...

    It’s early morning in Jerusalem. The vendors are setting up their stalls. The women arrive to purchase the freshest produce. The students rush to school. Buses come and go continuously, each one looking like the next. But this bus, number 18, is different. The young woman getting on board is overdressed for this autumn morning. Her zipped up leather jacket contrasts with the sweaters or light jackets of the other passengers. The series of explosives in her vest are in this way hidden. Like so many fashions in Israel, this too is imported. The vest and the explosives come from...

    <p>TWO WORDS -- "never again" -- sum up the most important lesson that civilized men and women were supposed to have learned from the 20th century. It is forbidden to keep silent, forbidden to look the other way, when tyrants embark on genocide and slaughter -- if Auschwitz and Kolyma and the Cambodian killing fields taught us nothing else, they taught us that. Or so, at any rate, we like to tell ourselves. As Samantha Power discovered upon returning to the United States after two years as a war correspondent in Bosnia, the lesson of "never again" is invoked far more often than it is applied.</p>

Arnold Schwarzenegger says the new budget reserve plan he negotiated with the Legislature will prevent the state from ever again descending into the kind of deficit spending spiral in which California finds itself today.</p> <p>But a close look at the details of the proposal, which will go before voters on March 2, suggests that it falls well short of accomplishing the goals Schwarzenegger was trying to achieve.</p>

    The museum at the Auschwitz extermination camp in Poland has condemned plans by a team of Israeli fighter jets to fly past the site. Three Israeli F-15 aircraft - piloted by descendants of Holocaust survivors - will on Thursday fly over the railway tracks which transported more than a million Jews to their deaths during the Holocaust. The museum, which runs the site, said it felt such a display was inappropriate. But Israel has defended the plans as a way to honour the camp's mainly Jewish victims. 'Military might' The Israeli pilots who will stage the fly-past are in Poland...

    But, as the old song says, "I'll Never Say 'Never Again' Again." As George Jonas pointed out the other day, the Arabs resent Europe for solving its Jewish problem by moving it offshore, by dumping it in their lap, making it an Arab problem. I have some sympathy for this view: With hindsight, it might have been better to give the Zionists France or Austria. The problem now for the Arabs is that they cannot rid themselves of the Jews by conventional military means: They have tanks, missiles, aircraft, but every time they use them against Israel, they lose....
