  • Andrea Mitchell To French Ambassador: Why Are ‘Provocative’ Anti-Muslim Cartoons Permitted?

    The host of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” asked French ambassador to the United States Gérard Araud why “provocative” anti-Muslim cartoons were permissible in France, when they had taken steps to ban Holocaust denial. “So why is it permissible to be as provocative as these anti-Muslim cartoons were?” she asked, before ominously adding, “This is a debate we’re having in the United States as well, you know.”

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. State Department on Sunday called on North Korea to refrain from provocative actions following reports Pyongyang had fired 10 short-range missiles into the sea off the east of the Korean peninsula.

  • So, Mr Putin, what do you see in this nubile 24-year-old rhythmic gymnast?

    This the kind of question Mrs Merton might ask. "So, Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, what do you see in a 24-year-old, sensationally beautiful gymnast with a penchant for posing semi-naked that you don't see in your lovely, middle-aged, matronly wife Ludmilla?" It is also the kind of question that hardly needs answering for the millions who have tuned in to the YouTube film of Alina Kabaeva performing a decidedly provocative gymnastic routine.
  • No Off Button on Sarah Palin (Huge Barf Alert!!!)

    This is a free country. If Sarah Palin wants to run for president in 2012, she is free to try. But she will not win the GOP nomination because Republican voters are not going to choose a middle-aged version of Britney Spears -- a figure whose most evident talent is to attract attention to herself -- to challenge Barack Obama. It's this simple: Republicans are too smart to nominate a candidate with a 50 percent unfavorable rating, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll, before she has declared for office. Cue to Palin's latest video, in which she...
  • "Provocative" or Downright Aggression?

    Tuesday, September 29, 2009 "Provocative" or Downright Aggression? Do you mean to tell me the President didn't know Iran had the capability to launch short-range missiles when he announced we were scrapping our plans to build a missile defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic? Ironic or unfortunate we made the announcement on the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland? "Provocative" as our State Department said or downright aggression when Iran tested their short-range missiles yesterday on Yom Kippur? Embarrassing or deplorable that our President announced the same day the missiles were being launched that he would...

    Rice: Nuclear Test a 'Provocative Act' Wednesday October 4, 2006 2:01 AM By ANNE GEARAN AP Diplomatic Writer CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Tuesday a North Korean nuclear test would be ``a very provocative act,'' and she prodded Asian nations to rethink their relationships with the North Koreans. The top U.S. diplomat said the United States would have to assess its options should such a test be carried out, but she did not elaborate. ``It would be a very provocative act by the North Koreans,'' Rice said during a press conference in Cairo, second stop...
  • Zapatero's provocative weakness

    One would like to think of Spain's repulsive Prime Minister, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, as just an unpleasant byproduct of last March's terrible terrorist attacks on Madrid commuter trains. Zapatero's only there because Spain's traumatized voters temporarily lost their senses in an election held just days after huge terror attacks and unexpectedly voted him in. But he's rapidly shaping up as something more nefarious than merely Jacques Chirac's faithful poodle. Politics are taking some strange disorienting directions in Spain now as a result of Zapatero's radical leftist government. Thursday, Spain's Basque Parliament voted 39-35 to scale back ties to Madrid,...

    Cabinet to review patriarch posting By Herb Keinon and Haim Shapiro April, 22 2002 The cabinet yesterday decided to review the appointment of Irineos as the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem. No date for the review has been scheduled. Yesterday's decision by the government was apparently the result of a complaint to the police lodged by MK Uri Ariel (National Union) on Thursday, accusing Irineos of incitement to rebel, incitement to use terrorism, and incitement to murder. According to Ariel, the alleged statements had been made in Ramallah by Atala Hanna, who Ariel said was an official spokesman for...
