    Most Israelis were either born or immigrated to this country during the period in which Hosni Mubarak ruled Egypt. This is the reality they know. And this is the significance of the stability that Mubarak provided them with. (Snip) The best case scenario, in his view, even if it is less likely, is that Egypt will become like Turkey before the era of Erdogan: a pro-American country, controlled by the military. Netanyahu shared with Mubarak his concerns about the growing strength of Iran. Egypt played a key role in the Sunni, the "moderate," axis, which lined up alongside Israel

    Editorial: Strange weather is situation normal December 29, 2006 Summer snow is no tipping point for climate change CSIRO research fellow Barrie Hunt has done everyone a service by blowing the whistle on the pessimistic hand-wringing that accompanies too much of the discussion on climate change and its relationship to the drought now gripping southeast Australia. As the retired head of the CSIRO's climate modelling program, Mr Hunt says there is nothing historically unusual about Australia's predicament, contrary to much of today's political blather. According to the CSIRO's model of 10,000 years of natural climate variability, the drought can be...

    IRAN is to start work in the next six months on a second nuclear power station, the energy minister said, amid increasing tension with the West over its atomic programme. "We have received the plans of (Iran's atomic energy chief) Gholam Reza Aghazadeh and the authorisation to start building the power station," said Energy Minister Parviz Fattah in comments published in local newspapers. "We are expecting to start the construction of the power station in the next six months," he said.

    <p>It's been a while since I've been here and I forgot my previous name, so I signed up again to post this.</p> <p>I don't think I'll be back here again. I have nothing against anyone, but there hardly seems to be a point. I've come to realize that concepts like "freedom" and "conservatism" are just illusions -- pipe dreams. The reality is that if you live in Outer Moogooland, then you need to elect somebody who will help Outer Moogooland. Better yet, elect somebody you can count on to help you personally.</p>

    NEW YORK - When it comes to the Hall of Fame, Pete Rose will still be locked out. Rose won’t appear on the baseball writers’ ballot in his final year of eligibility because commissioner Bud Selig will not rule on Rose’s application for reinstatement before the 2006 candidates are announced Nov. 29, according to Bob DuPuy, baseball’s chief operating officer. Rose, who last year admitted he bet on the Cincinnati Reds while managing the team in the late 1980s, doesn’t understand why the rules, unless changed, won’t allow him to ever appear on the annual ballot of the Baseball Writers’...

    (New York, 1-Aug SFTRNN) United Nations Sec. General Koffi Annan announced this evening that Iraqi foreign minister Tariq Azziz has accepted revised proposals for the return of U.N. weapon inspection teams to verify Iraqi claims that the country no longer has weapons of mass destruction and has no ongoing ability to research or manufacture them. Responding to Iraqi concerns over the composition of the team and possible inspection activity that might unfairly undermine the countries sovereignity and security rights, Annan had modified original proposals a number of times until final agreement was reached today. Among the key requirements Iraq demanded...
