    "US Latinas seek answers in Islam," heralds a recent feature article in The Christian Science Monitor (December 27). "Some young US Latinas say Islam offers women more respect," reports the paper's contributor Christine Armario. She quotes a head-scarved immigrant convert as saying that Muslim men "don't look at you like a sex object." According to Ms. Armario's account, "Many of the Latina converts say that their belief that women are treated better in Islam was a significant factor in converting." The report mentions in passing the skepticism that these conversions sometimes elicit in the Latino community, but then goes on...

    (IsraelNN.com) All air force operations such as the counter-terrorism aerial strikes over Gaza last night are filmed by a drone pilotless aircraft. After a day of PA accusations and condemnations from the international community, the IDF revealed the unedited film of last night’s so-called “massacre” in Gaza. The film shows without a doubt that when both sets of missiles were fired at a vehicle occupied by Hamas terrorists [who were on their way to an attack], there were no more than 2-3 persons in the area. The film shows that after the firing of the first missile, the vehicle was...

    Organizers of an upcoming Islamic event in London dealing with the events of Sept. 11 2001 are reacting angrily to charges that the event is more of a celebration than a conference. A poster promoting the event, scheduled for Sept. 11 2003, features pictures of the 19 hijhackers, whom it promotes as "The Magnificent 19." Despite the apparently laudatory comments of the hijackers by Al-Muhajiroun, the radical Islamic sect based in London promoting the event, an official statement from the group insists that the upcoming event is not a celebration. To categorize it as such, the document insists, is just...

She estimated the cost of the war at a trillion dollars in lost gross domestic product, on top of the $600 billion lost due to the 1991 Gulf War, at the start of a four-day session.

    When Israeli troops stormed Bethlehem last week, they seized an unlikely suspect on Israel's most-wanted list: Jala Abu Ajamia, a 17-year-old schoolgirl with no record of violence or political activism. At least a dozen soldiers entered her home in the Dheisheh refugee camp at 3 a.m. Friday. After capturing Abu Ajamia in her pajamas, they searched the house and questioned relatives for five hours, then handed her over to Israel's Shin Bet security service. Abu Ajamia attracted Israeli scrutiny in a most unusual way by complaining about an arranged marriage to a 27-year-old cousin. The teenager, who was then 16,...

    Columnist for Egyptian Government Daily to Hitler: "If Only You Had Done It, Brother" The following are excerpts from an article by Fatma Abdallah Mahmoud titled "Accursed Forever and Ever," which recently appeared in the Egyptian government daily Al-Akhbar: "They are accursed in heaven and on earth. They are accursed from the day the human race was created and from the day their mothers bore them. They are accursed also because they murdered the Prophets. They murdered the Prophet John the Baptist and served up his head on a golden platter to the singer and dancer Salome. Allah also cursed...

    In a press briefing Thursday, IDF Intelligence Officer Colonel Miri Eisen screened a four minute tape of a staged Palestinian funeral photographed by an Israeli drone flying over Jenin on Monday, April 28. Pallbearers repeatedly tried to carry a green blanket wrapped around a man who pretended to be dead, but kept falling out of the blanket. The funeral took place between the area that was destroyed in the Jenin refugee camp and the nearby cemetery. The Palestinians, Col. Eisen said, sought "to show as many casualties as possible were buried inside Jenin. They tried to falsify evidence in preparation...

    The government’s jailing of terrorism witnesses for a grand jury probe of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks is unconstitutional, a federal judge concluded Tuesday in dismissing a perjury case against a Jordanian college student. In a ruling that, if upheld, would have far reaching implications on the government’s approach to investigating terrorism, Judge Shira Scheindlin attacked the reasoning of Attorney General John Ashcroft. She criticized Ashcroft’s reported statement that “aggressive detention of lawbreakers and material witnesses is vital to preventing, disrupting or delaying new attacks.” Scheindlin wrote that “Relying on the material witness statute to detain people who are presumed...

    BARF ALERT!!! BARF ALERT!!! BARF ALERT!!! Falling scales Arab News Editorial 20 April 2002 What is the difference between Ariel Sharon and Slobodan Milosevic, now on trial for war crimes? Apart from the fact that one killed Bosnians and Albanians while the other kills Palestinians, the answer is none whatsoever. At least, that is the answer heard across the Arab and Muslim world. Now, across the West too, the same judgment is heard. Public opinion has started to regard Sharon as a war criminal. Over the past couple of weeks, the scales have fallen from millions of eyes. No...

    Lecturer claims media built anti-Muslim bias BY JAKE STUMP The Dominion Post Before Thursday night, hardly anyone could have thrown a spinach-eating cartoon sailor, Samuel L. Jackson and Time magazine writers all in the same boat. So did Dr. Ahmed Saifuddien, who claimed that Popeye, "Rules of Engagement" and Western journalists, among other media outlets, have helped paint a wrongful image of Muslims since the religion spread throughout Europe many years ago. Saifuddien, director of the Institute of Islamic and Arabic Sciences in America, traced Islam's history, which he believes has contributed to present-day Muslim biases, during the final lecture...

    Throughout history, religious wars have been fought in the name of different gods. The premise of the Oslo Accords was that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was not an irreconcilable religious war, but one over borders. However, the Palestinian religious leaders, all appointees of the PA political leadership, are publicly preaching that the Israel-Palestinian conflict is part of Islam's eternal religious war against the Jews. Jews are portrayed as the eternal enemies of Allah, and the killing of Jews as Allah's will. On the national level, Allah prohibits acceptance of Israel's existence and will destroy it. This ideology is preached in sermons...

    US Secretary of State Colin Powell’s visit here Monday sparked more than just the wrath of an anti-Washington mob, with some parties demanding that he be prosecuted as a war criminal. Despite Powell’s moderate position toward the Middle East crisis and his description by many as a “dove” in comparison with Pentagon hawks, activists here have levelled far-reaching accusations against the US diplomat-in-chief. Two Lebanese lawyers sent State Prosecutor Adnan Addoum an official notification, urging him to strip the visiting Powell of his diplomatic immunity and requesting that he be either arrested or expelled for his alleged role in war...
