    So where is Muqtada al-Sadr and his Mehdi Army now? After taking serious losses against American and Iraqi forces and cynically hiding behind Shiite Islam’s most holy shrine in Najaf, these cowards have melted back into Iraqi society. Or have they? There are many questions to be answered regarding al-Sadr’s future, as he most certainly will oppose the growth of democracy in Iraq. Will al-Sadr and his thugs be held accountable for the violent crimes they committed in Najaf? During their reign of terror, they apparently held a kangaroo court. After Iraq’s top Shiite, Ayatollah Ali Sistani, pressured al-Sadr to...

    Dutch Center-Right Coalition Stands up to Islamism By Andrew L. Jaffee, July 22, 2004 Home   Search   Forum   Terms Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende and his center-right coalition are standing up to Islamism, the true enemy of all civilized nations in the 21st century. Balkenende said Muslim groups “were sowing hatred, and [he] promised new anti-terror measures” in a speech to the European Parliament yesterday. On February 18 of this year, Dutch lawmakers promised to expel approximately 26,000 asylum seekers after digesting a parliamentary report which concluded … that the country's 30-year experiment in tolerant multiculturalism had been a failure, and has...

Iyad Allawi: working on a 'framework of six months' "Personally, I would bring the election date sooner. That depends on the situation we find ourselves in." Dr Allawi, a neurosurgeon who developed links to MI6 and the CIA...

    Little Press Coverage of MuslimHatred of Jews, Arab Hatred of Arabs By Andrew L. Jaffee, October 17, 2003 Home   Search   Forum   Terms Malaysia's Prime Minister Mahathir accused Jews of controlling the world. The Lebanese Parliament denied Palestinians the right to own land in The Lebanon. The Saudi government quashed a protest by its own citizens who were seeking political reforms. One would think these would be front-page headlines, but were either completely ignored or buried. These stories were not even mentioned on the ABC, NBC, or CBS evening news broadcasts. It seems the American mass media has an agenda that seeks to...

Jaffee, September 7, 2003 Home   Search   Forum   Terms Yasser Arafat today named Palestinian Authority (PA) parliamentary speaker Ahmed Qurei as new prime minister. Qurei will replace Mahmoud Abbas, who resigned yesterday. The BBC describes Qurei as: ...a leading member of the mainstream Fatah faction who helped to negotiate the Oslo peace accord with Israel 10 years ago. ... Palestinian officials describe him as an Arafat loyalist who's unlikely to challenge the veteran leader. "Arafat loyalist" means he's tainted by terror, and will continue the PA's rampant mismanagement and corruption. Same...

    FBI joins interrogation of prime suspect By Raymond Whitaker 15 September 2002 An international tug of war broke out yesterday as American and Pakistani investigators questioned one of the most senior al-Qa'ida suspects to be captured since the 11 September attacks on New York and Washington last year. Ramzi Binalshibh, who was arrested after a three-hour gun battle in the Pakistani city of Karachi on Wednesday, the anniversary of the attacks, is considered one of the chief planners and organisers of the operation. If he had not been denied a US visa, it is believed, he would have piloted one...

    Three Indian computer scientists have solved a longstanding mathematics problem by devising a way for a computer to tell quickly and definitively whether a number is prime — that is, whether it is evenly divisible only by itself and 1. Prime numbers play a crucial role in cryptography, so devising fast ways to identify them is important. Current computer recipes, or algorithms, are fast, but have a small chance of giving either a wrong answer or no answer at all. The new algorithm — by Manindra Agrawal, Neeraj Kayal and Nitin Saxena of the Indian Institute of Technology in Kanpur...
