The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing -- Edmund Burke

"Naim Qassam, Hizbullah Chief Hassan Nasrallah’s deputy, told Radio Canada that “a nation with suicide children is a victorious one. Israel cannot conquer us or desecrate our lands because we have shahids who will remove the Zionist filth. This will be done with the blood of the suicides.”
".........The war we fight today is more than a military conflict; it is the decisive ideological struggle of the 21st century. (Applause.) On one side are those who believe in the values of freedom and moderation -- the right of all people to speak, and worship, and live in liberty. And on the other side are those driven by the values of tyranny and extremism -- the right of a self-appointed few to impose their fanatical views on all the rest. As veterans, you have seen this kind of enemy before. They're successors to Fascists, to Nazis, to Communists, and other totalitarians of the 20th century. And history shows what the outcome will be: This war will be difficult; this war will be long; and this war will end in the defeat of the terrorists and totalitarians, and a victory for the cause of freedom and liberty........................
"We see the headlines almost daily. “Global warming: passing the tippingpoint” (The Independent, February 11, 2006), “Climate change a bigger security threat than terrorism” (The Guardian, June 12, 2006) and “Sea rise
could be catastrophic” (BBC News, March 23, 2006). Anyone familiar with
the flow of media reports might easily conclude from all the media hype that
man-made global warming or climate change is established science-fact. Yet
nothing could be further from the truth. Which begs the question: why, in the
face of the highly speculative and selective nature of climate science, do
media reports assume there is a consensual view – and collude with it in
articulating a wholesale return of conjecture?
For those of us who have taken the trouble to study the issue and the
media coverage of it, the shrillness of the mainstream media’s approach
appears to owe more to scaremongering than to good investigative reporting
– on an issue that could waste billions if the climate dissenters are correct."

"The coverage also showed the continuing cluelessness of much of our media when it comes to religion, despite its growing influence in all Middle Eastern conflicts. Centanni and Wiig were not merely kidnapped but also--something new in the Palestinian areas--forced to an nounce that they had converted to Islam as a condition not only of their release but of their survival.
The significance of this forced conversion has been downplayed in the media. The New York Times and the Washington Post even pronounced the two "unharmed" on release. This judgment is perverse. If Muslim prisoners in American custody were forced to convert to Christianity on pain of death or as a condition of release, the press would denounce it as virtual torture, and rightly so: No sane person would say the prisoners had suffered no harm."
The UN reminds one of an old joke about " now that we've established what you are,let's negotiate the price."
"Three months after the RCMP began arresting 18 suspects accused of plotting terror attacks in Canada, an investigation by the National Post has uncovered a web of links to Pakistan. Today, in the first of four parts, the role of a Pakistani training camp is revealed......".
