MI6 Spy Data Camera Sold on eBay

Foreign Confidential....

A digital camera that contained secret files about Al Qaeda was sold on eBay.

The information was obtained by Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, popularly known as MI6.

A 28-year-old delivery man from the UK paid about $31 for the Nikon Coolpix camera.

The memory card on the camera still contained names and images of suspected terrorists, and log-in details for the MI6 computer network

The buyer immediately contacted police. They are investigating the possibility that an MI6 agent is responsible for the mishap.

New Global Cooling Data Reported

Canada's National Post reports on global cooling:

In yet another sign that the Earth could be heading in to a period of global cooling, NASA reports that the solar wind is now at a 50-year low, the lowest that NASA has seen. This change in solar activity, which began to occur about a decade ago, coincides with the end of the climb in global temperatures that had been underway for decades.

Tibetan Movement Accuses China of Torture

As the United Nations prepares to hold hearings on China, the Tibetan government in exile has submitted a report detailing alleged cases of Chinese torture against Tibetans.

The report says China has violated an international torture convention through the widespread use of physical and mental torture against Tibetans as an instrument of political control.

The Indian-based government in exile submitted the report this week to the U.N. Committee Against Torture in Geneva for consideration ahead of the hearings in early November.

The report says 218 Tibetans were killed and nearly 7,000 were detained during China's crackdown on Tibetan protests that began in March. It provides details of alleged cases of torture of Tibetans by Chinese authorities.

China has not acknowledged any deaths of Tibetan civilians at the hands of security forces. But Chinese authorities say Tibetan rioters killed 22 people. Dozens of people accused of involvement in the riots were given jail sentences ranging from years to life in prison.

According to the Tibetan government in exile report, hundreds of monks are still being detained in Qinghai province and the whereabouts of many other detainees are unknown.

Several human rights groups also have submitted reports to the Committee Against Torture ahead of the November sessions on China.

Last week, London's Daily Telegraph published excerpts of what the newspaper said were questions from the committee about China's handling of the Tibetan protests. The questions include requests for China to provide more information about Tibetan detainees, sentencing and deaths during the crackdown.

Why No-Drill Democrats Love High Gas Prices

1. High gasoline prices generate windfall tax revenues for the federal government. The federal tax of 18.4 cents per gallon is collected in all states in addition to any state or local taxes on gasoline sales. Democrats see the government as the engine of the economy; they measure a nation's strength by the size of its government instead of the state of its productive capacity.

2. High gasoline prices support the push for government mandates and subsidies for development and use of agrofuels and other forms of supposedly green, alternative energy, even though there actually are no alternatives to oil and gas, coal, shale, and nuclear power.

3. High gasoline prices hurt the folks the Democrats most despise: suburban, semi-rural, and rural Americans. Rural Americans are especially despised; Democrats, led by Barack Hussein Obama, are determined to destroy the rural way of life. Obama and his radical, left-wing henchmen won't rest until every last countryside church is shuttered, gun is confiscated, and pickup truck is sold or repossessed. Make no mistake about: America's small towns and villages are front line targets.

America's First Multinational Presidential Candidate

Meet Barack Hussein Obama, America's first multinational Presidential candidate....

He was born in Hawaii (maybe) and reared in Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation, where he was introduced to Islam and native superstitions and customs--including eating dog.

He was born a Muslim, according to islamic religious law, which traces religious identity through the father.

His father, a non-practicing Muslim, was an Arab-African from Kenya, whose left-leaning government he sharply criticized for not being sufficiently socialist.

His stepfather was a practicing Muslim, who registered his stepson at an Indonesian elementary school as a Muslim citizen of Indonesia.

As a student at Columbia University, his off-campus roommate was a Pakistani visa over-stayer who accompanied him to Pakistan and a predominantly Muslim city in India.

He was a citizen of Kenya, and probably used a Kenyan passport to enter and exit Pakistan and India.

He may still be a citizen of Indonesia, a hotbed of Muslim separatism and Islamist terrorism.

He responded to 9/11 by urging the US to restrain itself, militarily, and warning against "rounding up Arabs."

He personally profited and was politically and financially supported by an Arab-American crook, recently convicted and jailed.

He was spiritually advised for two decades by an anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, anti-white, Black Liberation Theology minister who blamed--and damned--the US for 9/11 only five days after the Islamist attacks, and subsequently published and distributed Hamas propaganda.

He was probably sponsored and supported during his Harvard Law School years by a notorious anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, anti-white, black Muslim adviser to a fabulously wealthy Saudi prince.

His cousin, Kenya's Prime Minister and opposition leader, is allied with Islamists seeking to impose Islamic religious law on parts of the African country.

The world's Muslim masses and their tyrants and terrorists--Ahmadinejad, Khadafy, Hamas, Hezbollah--are all rooting for him to conquer the White House.

What was the Democratic Party thinking?

The Bottom Line on the Big Bailout

Dateline USA....

The bottom line on the Big Bailout: America avoided a depression; but the recession will last at least another year and may even deepen.

What is to be done? Some suggestions:

1. Create incentives--such as tax credits--to invest in housing. It is still too high; the financial firms are afraid of losing billions more; but investment in housing will stimulate the economy and help ordinary people.

2. Create incentives to invest in real energy, as opposed to fake--i.e. alternative or so-called renewable or green--energy. Real energy includes: conventional and heavy oil, including enhanced recovery of conventional crude and construction of new oil refineries; natural gas, including construction of new pipelines; coal, including coal liquefaction and gasification; shale oil; and nuclear power.

3. If existing energy companies won't invest in real energy, create a national oil company to develop domestic resources--like every other nation on earth that is blessed with energy resources.

4. Muzzle or ignore Al Gore, whose manmade global warming hoax and hysteria threaten to cripple or kill the country.

5. Create incentives to invest in infrastructure, including rural broadband and fast trains. Flying from New York to Chicago is absurd. Call centers in India and Bangladesh are absurd.

Is Khamenei Still Supreme?

Foreign Confidential....

Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei may no longer be so supreme.

The turbaned tyrant is losing power to the mullahocracy's maniac-in-chief, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and the Revolutionary Guards.

In fact, if the trend continues, Iran will be a mullahocracy in name only. Instead of a clerical fascist country, it will simply be fascist--with clerical backing.

So say a growing number of analysts, including some who have followed developments in Iran since the 1979 Islamic overthrow of the pro-American Shah, a modernizing monarch.

From a Western perspective, the suspected power shift is ominous. The Revolutionary Guards are even more militant than most of the mullahs--and more adventurous in terms of foreign policy. They are bent on developing nuclear weapons--and intercontinental ballistic missiles--with the aim of destroying Israel and driving the United States from the Middle East. Some members of Ahmadinejad's inner circle actually believe that Iran can destroy the US, too, with a nuclear electromagnetic pulse attack.

Guest Editorial: Obama's Radicalism

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

It is incomprehensible that anyone would entrust the education of children to an admitted -- and unapologetic -- domestic terrorist. Yet Sen. Barack Obama has done just that.

From 1995 to 2001, the Democrats' presidential nominee was an integral part of the radical leftist Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) education foundation, formed by William Ayers, a founder of the violent Weather Underground gang.

It's the same Mr. Ayers who (along with his followers) bombed the Pentagon and never expressed remorse about his wickedness.

And it's the same Ayers in whose home Barack Obama launched his political career in 1995.

Hand in glove, Obama and Ayers schemed to hand over more than $100 million to community organizers and radical education activists, writes Stanley Kurtz, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

After the CAC evaluated its own efforts, it admitted there was no evidence that its grants furthered educational improvement.

In trying to downplay his incestuous connection to the bomber, Obama claims that Ayers only is "a guy who lives in my neighborhood" and "not somebody who I exchange ideas with on a regular basis."

But there are damning documents about CAC stored at the University of Illinois at Chicago that refute Obama's characterization.

The more the public learns about Barack Obama's long and deep ties to Bill the Bomber, Nation of Islam boss and notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, bizarre billionaire George Soros, race-baiter Rev. Al Sharpton -- and that Obama is a devoted disciple of radical leftist Saul Alinsky's "in-your-face" confrontational political tactics -- the more the public learns about Barack Obama.

As far as Obama and Ayers go, says Mr. Kurtz, it's not the "guilt by association" that Obama's campaign is complaining about but "guilt by participation." Indeed, it's time for Americans to judge Barack Obama not by his words but by his deeds.

No-Drill Democrats Fail to Save Oil Shale Ban

Dateline USA....

When it comes to energy, there is nothing to fear except fear itself--and the Democratic Party.

But, God willing, the no-drill dumbbells will be defeated; their perfidious plot to drive America into an early grave, in the name of "saving the planet," will be exposed and crushed, as shown by the latest developments in oil shale.

Production of this truly awesome energy resource on federal lands in the West will be allowed to move forward starting Monday after Congress failed to re-enact a ban on finalizing a leasing program.

Hatred and Anger

Of course, some Democrats, seething with hate and anger, are warning they will try to replace moratoriums as soon as Congress reconvenes in January.

Be that as it may, the anti-energy party in the Senate failed on Friday to pass a bill that included language that would continue to prohibit the Bureau of Land Management from issuing final oil shale regulations.

The Democratic effort failed when the financial stimulus package, which would have contained the oil shale ban, stalled in the Senate on a 52-to-42 vote.

Yes, there is a God....

The vote came as the expiration of the oil shale ban — often called the oil shale moratorium--appreoached. It is set to expire at midnight Monday.

If the ban fades away, the Bureau of Land Management will be able to issue final regulations for a commercial oil shale program for 2 million acres in the American West at the end of this year. The agency released draft regulations in July.

1 Trillion Barrels of Oil

The completion of those regulations, along with an expected record of decision that will open about 360,000 acres in Colorado to possible oil shale development, could open the door to a potential sale of federal oil shale leases in the state. But Bureau officials say it could be years before any lease sale occurs.

The Piceance Basin, which stretches across Garfield, Rio Blanco and Mesa counties, is estimated to have close to 1 trillion barrels of oil.

Companies pursuing oil shale research on five experimental leases in Colorado say they are years from even deciding whether to go ahead with commercial production of oil shale.

Wanted: a national oil company, owned by the taxpayers, to tap oil shale and other energy resources that are profitable but perhaps not profitable enough for multinational or large independent oil companies. A national oil company could also develop the nation's heavy oil resources and use proven, commercially available enhanced oil recovery methods to squeeze new oil from old oil fields.

Israel Trained Chinese Police Ahead of Olympics

Haaretz reports

Israel Police held secret training for Chinese police officers ahead of the recent Olympic Games.... The approximately six-week course was held in Israel for about 20 selected officers of the People's Armed Police Force, to use Israeli experience to train them for possible scenarios involving terror and civil disturbances at the Games.

The training involved, among other things, how to neutralize terrorists with their bare hands, how to deal with a crowd that riots on the playing field, and how to protect VIPS and remove demonstrators from main traffic arteries.

The Chinese officers arrived in Israel last May for the training, at the request of the Chinese public safety ministry. Brigadier General Bentzi Sau was appointed head of the project and designed the training program.

All the police and Border Police officers participating in the program underwent a series of lectures by Foreign Ministry officials to sensitize them to cultural differences and make it easier for both groups to find a common language.

Thank You, Dr. Kissinger

"Senator McCain is right. I would not recommend the next President of the United States engage in talks with Iran at the Presidential level. My views on this issue are entirely compatible with the views of my friend Senator John McCain. We do not agree on everything, but we do agree that any negotiations with Iran must be geared to reality."

-Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, reacting to Barack Obama's mischaracterization of his view on negotiations with nuclear-arming Iran

Mysterious Mr. Obama Admits He Was Dual Citizen

Dateline USA....

Democratic Presidential candidate (of constant change) Barack Hussein Obama has admitted that he was born a dual citizen--of the United States and Kenya. He says his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired in August 1982. Click here for the story.

But Obama has yet to address another question: was he a triple citizen--of the United States, Kenya, and Indonesia? More important, is he still a dual US and Indonesian citizen?

Obama's Indonesian stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, registered Obama for school in Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country, under the name Barry Soetoro, and listed his religion as Muslim and his citizenship as Indonesian, according to an apparently authentic registration certificate.

In addition, there are credible reports that Obama may have used a foreign passport to travel to and from Pakistan and between Pakistan and India during a mysterious trip he made in 1981 with his Pakistani roommate after transferring to Columbia University from Occidental College--one year before his Kenyan citizenship supposedly expired. Obama could have used a Kenyan passport or an Indonesian one.

Indonesia is a hotbed of Muslim separatism and Islamist terrorism. It is inconceivable that a US President and Commander-in-Chief could also be an Indonesian citizen--or any kind of dual citizen, for that matter.

UPDATE: Did the dual citizenship issue distract and weaken Obama before the Presidential debate Friday night? Some veteran Democrats wonder. Their candidate seemed tired and defensive, as if he had just been hit by bad news.

Sinopec Buys Heavy Oil Company Active in Syria

Foreign Confidential....

While energy-choked America, paralyzed by global warming zealotry and environmental extremism, looks to phony agrofuels and government subsidized, inefficient wind and solar power and nonexistent cellulosic ethanol for salvation, China is increasingly investing in heavy oil--the thick, gummy resource that is far more plentiful but also more expensive to extract and refine than conventional crude oil.

Only two days after Venezuela announced that China had agreed to build a heavy oil refinery in the South American country's incredibly heavy oil-rich Orinoco River Basin (scroll down to read the story), Chinese oil firm Sinopec Group agreed to buy Tanganyika Oil, a small producer of heavy oil in Syria, for $2 billion. The company, which is listed in Toronto and Stockholm, made the announcement on Thursday.

The acquisition of Tanganyika Oil brings Sinopec 184 million barrels of proven heavy oil reserves at a cost of roughly $10 a barrel, according to energy experts. Production was expected to grow from 6,000 barrels per day to up to 12,800 bpd this year.

The heavy oil reserves are located in Syria's Kurdish areas, in the northeastern part of the country, near the Kurdish region of Iraq.

Al Qaeda Could Attempt Another 9/11

Foreign Confidential....

Early warning.

Like sharks smelling blood (please forgive the insult to sharks, which are innocent animals and infinitely more deserving of life and respect than any Islamist), Muslim jihadist terrorists led by or associated with Al Qaeda are probably plotting another mega-attack on the United States in order to increase its economic bleeding.

A new, 9/11-style attack could turn the current US financial crisis into a full-blown, economic catastrophe.

The United States must be prepared to crush the Islamist menace using any and all necessary means--including nuclear weapons.

Iran Only Months From Making A-Bombs

Foreign Confidential....

Iran is dangerously close to a uranium enrichment breakthrough that will allow for the manufacture of nuclear weapons.

The January-February 2009 time frame is critical in this regard. A major announcement can be expected around the 30th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution--the overthrow of Iran's modernizing monarch, the pro-American Shah.

Actual bomb production could be underway before the end of next year--meaning, missiles could be equipped with nuclear warheads developed with the help of Iran's nuclear-armed, Stalinist ally, North Korea.

In short, Israel and the United States are running out of time to stop the Iranian menace.

UPDATE: President Bush reportedly vetoed Israel's plans to bomb Iran's nuclear weapons sites, The Guardian reported Thursday.

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert asked Bush's approval when the US president was in Israel in May, commemorating its 60th anniversary, the paper said.

Bush turned down the request, the report said, fearing Iranian attacks on US interests in the region and beyond. Bush also was not convinced Israel would be able to stop the suspected nuclear weapons program.

The Guardian quoted sources close to a European leader who was briefed by Olmert on the meeting with Bush.

Iranian Propaganda Reaching New, Nazi-Like Levels

Foreign Confidential....

Iran's propaganda war with Israel and the United States is entering a new, Nazi-like phase, as shown by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech at the UN General Assembly Tuesday.

The Hitler-admiring, Holocaust-denying, Iranian maniac-in-chief railed against "Zionist murderers," dwelling on what he described as Zionist control of international finance, echoing the libel that blamed a world Jewish conspiracy for all the world's troubles.

There is a method to Mahmoud's madness. Like the Nazi Fuhrer--who first tested the international community's attitude towards the Jews with propaganda, killings, beatings, persecution, and discrimination before opting for full-fledged genocide--the Islamist (clerical fascist) leader is trying to exploit anti-Semitic themes in order to isolate and weaken Israel and its supporters around the world ahead of an all-out assault aimed at annihilating the Jewish state.

Again, we advise and appeal to Israel: end the Iranian regime before it ends you. The choice is mass death in Tehran or mass death in Tel Aviv.

As a Jew--and a Zionist--this reporter chooses mass death in Tehran.

Diplomacy is dead. There is only a military solution; and it must include the use of nuclear weapons. There is no alternative.

Ein breira.

Al Gore Declares War on American Economy

Dateline USA....

Is Al Gore a lunatic or a traitor?

The fire-breathing, global warming charlatan called Wednesday for "civil disobedience" to combat the construction of coal power plants without the ability to store "carbon."

The former vice president, who parlayed a boring slide show into an Academy Award--and a Nobel Peace Prize--made the comment during a session at the fourth annual Clinton Global Initiative in Manhattan.

"If you're a young person looking at the future of this planet and looking at what is being done right now, and not done, I believe we have reached the stage where it is time for civil disobedience to prevent the construction of new coal plants that do not have carbon capture and sequestration," Gore said.

Understand, as Barack Obama likes to say, that the United States is the Saudi Arabia of coal, that coal liquefaction and gasification are commercially proven and available technologies, that energy is the lifeblood of a nation, that no serious energy expert believes that solar power and windmills can begin to make a dent in US energy needs over the next decade, that the most recent data shows that the earth has stopped warming and actually may have begun to cool, and that over 31,000 scientists, including climatologists and more than 9,000 Ph.D.s, have signed a petition urging the US government to resist the manmade global warming hysteria.

So ... is Al Gore a lunatic or a traitor?

You decide.

Asian Markets Buoyed by Buffett-Goldman Deal

Asia's institutional investors are somewhat encouraged by news that Warren Buffett is investing heavily in a major Wall Street firm.

Buffett, one of the richest men in the United States, announced Tuesday that his Berkshire Hathaway investment firm would buy $5 billion of shares in Wall Street giant Goldman Sachs. The investment is a major boost for an institution battered by the current meltdown of the US financial sector.

The 78-year-old billionaire described the current financial crisis as an "economic Pearl Harbor," and said his investment in Goldman Sach is an endorsement of the Treasury's $700 billion bank rescue plan.

" I am betting on the Congress doing the right thing for the American public and passing this bill,'' Buffett said on CNBC. "I certainly have a vote of confidence in Goldman and vote of confidence in Congress.''

Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke are pressuring Congress to quickly approve the proposal to remove illiquid assets from the banking system.

Buffett's decision to buy a stake in New York-based Goldman comes after three of the investment bank's biggest competitors collapsed or were forced into emergency sales.

"I think the Treasury will pay back the $700 billion and make a considerable amount of money,'' Buffett said, adding that if he had $700 billion on the government's terms to buy distressed assets, he would. "

"Unfortunately, I'm tapped out,'' he said.

In related news, the US Federal Reserve announced earlier Wednesday that it is pumping another $30 billion into the global financial system, in a coordinated action with central banks in Australia, Denmark, Norway and Sweden.

One Year After 9/11, Barack Hussein Obama's Spiritual Adviser Called Israel a 'Dirty Word'

The above clip should be viewed in the context of some of Reverend Jeremiah Wright's other statements about Israel:

“White America got their wake-up call after 9/11. White America and the Western world came to realize people of color had not gone away, faded in the woodwork, or just disappeared as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring black concerns.”

“The Israelis have illegally occupied Palestinian territories for over 40 years now. Divestment has now hit the table again as a strategy to wake the business community and wake up Americans concerning the injustice and the racism under which the Palestinians have lived because of Zionism.”

Editorial: Obliterate the Iranian Regime

Iran's Hitler-admiring, Holocaust-denying maniac-in-chief, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was interviewed by Larry King on CNN Tuesday night.

After watching the grinning, Islamist psychopath drone on and dominate the interview, this reporter is more than ever convinced that the time has come to use any and all necessary weapons--including nuclear missiles--to obliterate the Iranian regime.

The choice is simple: mass death in Iran or mass death in Israel and the United States. The US may be paralyzed by economic and political problems. But Israel--the Jewish state reborn in its historic and religious homeland after 2,000 years--is obligated to overcome its internal problems. The Third Temple must not fall....

Ahmadinejad: America Near Collapse

Foreign Confidential....

Iran's maniac-in-chief, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, told the UN General Assembly Tuesday that "the American empire" is nearing collapse and should end its military involvement in other countries.

"American empire in the world is reaching the end of its road, and its next rulers must limit their interference to their own borders," Ahmadinejad said.

He accused the United States of starting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to win votes in elections and blamed a "few bullying powers" for trying to undermine Iraq's nuclear program.

China Moving to Tap Venezuelan Heavy Oil

Foreign Confidential....

While America, even in the midst of a financial crisis that could wreck the country, persists in its irrational hatred of oil--any oil, regardless of where it comes from--China is wisely moving ahead to tap awesome oil resources in America's own backyard.

This reporter is referring to the incredibly massive heavy oil resources of Venezuela's Orinoco River Basin, which have been known for several decades. [During the energy crisis of the late 1970s and early '80s, this reporter and other observers urged the United States to forge a Western Hemisphere energy alliance with Venezuela and Canada, focused on Venezuelan heavy crude and Canadian tar sands.]

"Venezuela has enough oil to last for two hundred years," Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Tuesday on the first day of his official, two-day visit to China. "And the Chinese are already working to tap that."

The anti-American despot told reporters China and Venezuela had agreed to jointly build two oil refineries, one in each country.

Heavy Oil Refinery

Chavez said the refinery to be built in Venezuela will be located in the the Orinoco Basin. A formal agreement on the issue should be signed during Chavez's stay in China.

China is already building a refinery to process imported Venezuelan oil, following an agreement reached this year. Chavez didn't provide details on when or where the second Chinese refinery would be built.

Chavez intends to strengthen relations with China through increased oil sales, partly to reduce dependency on the United States, which still buys about 60% of Venezuelan exports.

"China is showing the world that it isn't necessary to harm anyone to be a great power. They are soldiers of peace," he said, according to a Venezuelan government press release.

Asked about his absence from talks this week on the sidelines of the United Nations in New York, Chavez said: "It's much more important to be in Beijing."

Meanwhile, the BBC reported Tuesday that Russian warships are heading to Venezuela for joint exercises unprecedented since the Cold War.

The fleet of ships, headed by the nuclear-powered Peter the Great cruiser, set off from its base at Severomorsk in the Arctic.

The ships are due to take part in joint maneuvers with Venezuela in November.

Iran Transferring Terrorists, Missiles to Venezuela

Foreign Confidential....

Iran is strengthening its relations with Venezuela in the fields of defense, intelligence, and ... terrorism.

The Islamist regime is transferring missile technology to the South American nation. Its military has secretly imported Iranian missiles; and production and assembly operations are believed to be underway. Iranian Revolutionary Guard commanders have been assigned to the project.

Iran has also established a Hezbollah base in Caracas. Agents of the terrorist group and Iranian intelligence are believed to be spying on Jewish community members for purposes of planning kidnappings and terrorist attacks against Jewish targets.

North Korea Confirms it Fooled the US

America's appeasing, dumbbell diplomats are beside themselves. Their one achievement under the Bush administration--a phony nuclear disarmament deal with the world's worst government--is going down the tubes. Our correspondent in Tokyo reports....

North Korea confirmed today that it has started to undo the dismantlement of its Yongbyon nuclear reactor. The news should not surprise anyone who has monitored the nuclear-armed, criminal Communist/Kimist regime that has turned its portion of the Korean Peninsula into a giant concentration camp. Here's why:

1. The regime will never abandon atomic arms. The dismantlement, following protracted negotiations, was just an act, another tactic to buy time.

2. The regime needs and thrives on maintaining a constant state of tension with its arch enemy, the United States.

3. The regime will make every effort possible to ratchet up tensions when necessary in order to divert attention from its nuclear-arming, Islamist ally, Iran, whose nuclear and missile programs North Korea has assisted. Throughout Iran's nuclear standoff with the West, North Korea has basically behaved like a villainous, exhibition wrestling tag-team partner--diverting the referee's attention while his partner cheats and gains an advantage.

North Korea's announcement regarding Yongbyon follows reports that "Dear Leader" Kim Jong Il is either dead (some Japanese analysts and reporters believe he died some years ago and has been replaced by one or more "doubles") or deathly ill after suffering a stroke.

Iran Again Threatens to 'Break the Hands' of its Enemies and 'Eliminate Israel From the Universe'

Foreign Confidential....

AP reports that Iran's

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday that Iran's military will "break the hand" of anyone targeting his country's nuclear facilities.

The president spoke during a military parade displaying various types of Iranian-made missiles, including Shahab-3 and Ghadr. Also taking part in the parade was a military truck carrying a huge banner saying "Israel should be eliminated from the universe" in both English and Farsi.

"If anyone allows himself to commit even a tiny offense against Iran's legitimate interests, borders and sacred land, our armed forces will break his hand before he pulls the trigger," Ahmadinejad said during the parade.

The phrase "legitimate interests" is Iranian parlance for the country's nuclear program, which the West says is a cover for developing nuclear weapons. Iran, which denies the charge, already is under three sets of sanctions by the U.N. Security Council over the issue.

In Israel, meanwhile, the head of the Military Intelligence Research Division, Brig.Gen Yossi Baidatz, warned the cabinet on Sunday that Iran is well on its way to building a nuclear bomb.

Baidatz said Teheran is also strengthening its ties with Hizbullah, Syria and Palestinian terror groups with the aim of becoming the leader of all the radical forces in the Middle East.

"Iran is focusing its efforts in enriching uranium and improving the operational capabilities of its centrifuges," he said adding that the more moderate Arab states remain divided in their wish to act against Iran.

Russia Spying on Israel for Syria and Hezbollah

Foreign Confidential....

An Israeli intelligence official on Friday accused Russia of transmitting intelligence on Israel to Syria and Iran's Shiite Lebanese proxy, Hezbollah.

Col. Ram Dor, the IDF’s chief of information security, said Russian spy ships are docking in Syrian waters, and that Russians are working at hi-tech eavesdropping stations in Syria, near the Golan Heights, Israel’s daily Yediot Achronot reported.

"My assessment is that their facilities cover most of the state of Israel's territory," Dor said, according to a citation of the report in Reuters. "So if the Russians help the Syrians get information, and the Syrians constantly pass it on to Hezbollah, it is a reasonable supposition that the information gathered by the Russians also reaches Hezbollah's hands."

Israel Foils Terror Plot

Foreign Confidential....

The Israel Security Agency, commonly known as the Shin Bet, recently exposed a Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) squad in the Ramallah region that included two Israeli Arabs.

The squad was well prepared for an attack on an IDF roadblock north of Ramallah; it also drew up initial plans for assassinations of senior Israeli officials.

Two operatives were young Israeli Arabs from Shfaram, a city in northern Israel . They raised funds to purchase explosives and attempted to contact the PIJ headquarters in Syria.

The operatives' interrogation revealed that the Ramallah squad was planning military operations, including attacking an IDF roadblock in Atara (north of Ramallah) and assassinating key Israeli figures (pilots, scientists, lecturers, etc.).

The squad held in its possession weapons and ammunition and was well into preparations for the attack on the IDF roadblock, while the assassination plans were still in their initial stages.

Ayatollah Reveals Iran's Intentions; So Nuke It Now!

Foreign Confidential....

Amid reports that the major powers had failed to agree on a new round of UN sanctions against nuclear-arming, terrorist-sponsoring, clerical fascist (Islamist) Iran, the country's top turbaned tyrant and Supreme Clerical Fascist, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Tehran's hostility to Israel extended beyond the government to the Israeli people. In saying so, he was dismissing recent propagandistic overtures by top Iranian officials to the Israeli public.

Khamenei said Iran and Israel were on a "collision course."

"Who are Israelis?" the Islamo-Nazi told thousands of worshipers gathered for Friday prayers in downtown Tehran. "They are responsible for usurping houses, territory, farmlands and businesses. They are combatants at the disposal of Zionist operatives. A Muslim nation cannot remain indifferent vis-a-vis such people who are stooges at the service of the arch-foes of the Muslim world."

Khamenei's language recalls the Nazi era in that it makes clear that all Jews living in Israel are marked for annihilation. Just as Hitler essentially outlawed the Jewish people--according to the Nazis, they had no right to exist anywhere on earth--Khamenei is ruling out the possibility of life for every Israeli (i.e. every Jewish Israeli). And that is only a first step. Like all Islamists, Khamenei believes that his creed calls for the ultimate subjugation or annihilation of all Jews and Christians everywhere on earth, although he was clever enough Friday not to spell that out.

He said Iran has no problem with Judaism or other religions. "But we are on a collision course with the occupiers of Palestine and the occupiers are the Zionist regime. This is the position of our regime, our revolution and our people."

Enough said. Iran's Hitlerian regime is clearly close to acquiring atomic weapons--and atomic missiles. Its uranium enrichment breakthrough is at most months away. The monstrous mullahocracy is aiming for a dramatic announcement in time for the 30th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution (which overthrew the pro-American Shah with the assistance of the catastrophically craven Carter administration).

Iran is also clearly preparing for war with the United States and Israel. The regime intends to destroy the Jewish state, bomb US military bases across the Middle East, and drive the US out of the region for all time.

Iran is also planning terrorist attacks against Americans and Jews around the world. US cities are targets. Aided by North Korea, Iran has developed the capability of launching missiles from cargo ships; the possibility of a nuclear attack on a US coastal city or a crippling electromagnetic pulse attack over the US cannot be discounted.

So what is to be done? Having sent the all wrong signals---including the rise of Barack Hussein Obama and the promotion of Israel's weakest-ever foreign minister, Tzipi Livni, to replace its worst-ever prime minister, Ehud Olmert--the US and Israel must attack Iran now, using any and all necessary weapons, including low-yield, tactical nuclear weapons, to obliterate all known and suspected Iranian missile bases and nuclear sites--and the entire Revolutionary Guard. It must be utterly destroyed.

Imagine how many innocent lives could have been saved had the US had the atomic bomb and dropped it on Berlin at the beginning of World War II.

The choice is mass death in iran or mass death in the US and Israel.

So nuke Iran before Iran nukes us.

SEC Wants Hedge Funds to Disclose Short Positions

Dateline USA....

The financial situation is dire.

That's the bad news.

The good news is that the government is trying hard to deal with the crisis in a comprehensive way.

Example: the Securities and Exchange Commission proposed a rule Friday that would require hedge funds to disclose their short-sale positions. The SEC also plans to subpoena the funds' communication records.

Hedge funds and investors managing more than $100 million in securities would be "required to promptly begin public reporting of their daily short positions,'' Chairman Christopher Cox said.

Aggressive SEC Rules

The proposed disclosure is in addition to aggressive SEC rules that took effect in an attempt to stem some of the worst stock-market slides in years.

The SEC said it is halting short selling on 799 financial stocks. The ban, which is effective immediately, is set to last for 10 days, but could be extended for up to 30 days.

The SEC also announced a temporary requirement for large institutional money managers to report short positions in certain stocks, and eased restrictions on corporate stock buy backs, saying that will give companies greater flexibility to buy their own shares and help restore liquidity at a time "of unusual and extraordinary market volatility."

EDITOR'S COMMENT: It's no secret to savvy Wall Streeters that hedge funds have engaged in massive naked short-selling and other abusive but legal stock price influencing practices tantamount to (illegal) market manipulation.

What a Day! Washington Has a Plan!

Dateline USA....

Good news for John McCain: the world is not ending. America is not going down the drain, despite the hopes of the Candidate of Change, Barack Hussein Obama, and his most zealous left-wing (and Islamist-leaning and Islamist-sympathizing) supporters.

With bipartisan backing, a major new federal funding facility will be created to deal with the financial crisis--i.e. to provide a comprehensive solution for the billions of dollars of bad debt that haas poisoned the balance sheets of the biggest banks and financial firms.

Meanwhile, administrative measures will be taken pending passage of necessary new legislation.

The markets responded appropriately Thursday. Although there may be profit taking tomorrow in some sectors, a higher open and another good day is expected for Friday.

At the end of the day, the American economy, as Republican Presidential candidate McCain and President Bush have asserted, is fundamentally strong; and any government, let alone a superpower, has weapons and tools as its disposal to deal with financial crises.

2008 is not 1929. America is alive and well. Obama should stay away from the economy and energy and instead stick to advocating appeasement of nuclear arming, Islamist Iran--his real area of expertise.

A Modest Proposal to Barack: Meet Mahmoud in NY

Dateline USA....

A modest proposal: As Barack Hussein Obama is the only Presidential candidate who supports summit talks with nuclear-arming, Islamist Iran without preconditions, he should seize the opportunity to meet the country's Holocaust-denying maniac-in-chief, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, when he visits New York next week to attend the annual opening session of the United Nations General Assembly. It will be Ahmadinejad's third trip to New York since he came to power in August 2005.

BHO could meet privately with Ahmadinejad. Alternatively, the Democrat could attend the Iranian president's dinner with appeasement-minded, US religious groups, which is scheduled for September 25. The Mennonite Central Committee, the Quakers, the World Council of Churches--which has launched its own version of a global jihad against Israel--Religions for Peace, and the American Friends Service Committee are sponsoring the meeting with Ahmadinejad, a dinner to break the Ramadan fast.

The dinner, called an Iftar, is being billed as an international dialogue between religious leaders and political figures in a conversation "about the role of religions in tackling global challenges and building peaceful societies."

Obama's former spiritual adviser, Reverend Jeremiah ("G. D. America") Wright, and former friend, Father Michael Pfleger, would probably like to accompany The Candidate of Change (and Islamic influence) to the Iftar. It would be a good opportunity for BHO to patch up relations with key members of his Chicago base while reaching out to a front man for a foreign power that intends to destroy Israel and drive the United States from the Middle East. Two birds with one stone....

It would certainly help Obama to win the election should he succeed in persuading Ahmadinejad to abandon, suspend, or simply pretend to suspend uranium enrichment. Obama would be a hero.

The downside? If nothing comes from the encounter, or if it goes badly wrong, Obama could always lie about what happened. Given the support he enjoys in the mainstream media, Obama could say anything, true or false, without fear of being challenged or exposed.

That's so Democratic.

CIA Director Says Al Qaeda Top Nuclear Threat

Foreign Confidential....

While North Korea has nuclear weapons and is a black market supplier of nuclear technology, and Iran has the capability to produce nuclear weapons, Al Qaeda is most likely to actually use the weapons; hence, the terrorist group is the top nuclear concern of the CIA, according to its director, Michael Hayden.

"[Al Qaeda leader Osama] Bin Laden has said repeatedly that he considers acquisition of nuclear weapons a religious duty," Hayden said. "And we know that al-Qaida remains determined to attack our country in ways that inflict maximum death and destruction."

When asked why the US had yet to capture the Al Qaeda leader, Hayden said he occasionally asks the CIA's head of counterterrorism the same question. His answer, he said, is that Binladen is hiding.

"Please don't think I'm being flip with the answer," Hayden told the Los Angeles World Affairs Council on Tuesday. "This man, who we really do want to kill or capture, is spending a great deal of his energy merely surviving and that's the next best state of nature as far as we're concerned. I'm serious."

Hayden asserted that Binladen is no longer in charge of Al Qaeda because he is on the run.

SEC Cracks Down on Naked Shorts

Dateline USA....

Good news for the United States, bad news for the offshore hedge fund operators and investors who have unfairly influenced and battered the share prices of US publicly traded companies.

The Securities and Exchange Commission today took several coordinated actions to strengthen investor protections against "naked" short selling. The Commission's actions will apply to the securities of all public companies, including all companies in the financial sector. The actions are effective at 12:01 a.m. ET on Thursday, Sept. 18, 2008.

"These several actions today make it crystal clear that the SEC has zero tolerance for abusive naked short selling," said SEC Chairman Christopher Cox. "The Enforcement Division, the Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations, and the Division of Trading and Markets will now have these weapons in their arsenal in their continuing battle to stop unlawful manipulation."

In an ordinary short sale, the short seller borrows a stock and sells it, with the understanding that the loan must be repaid by buying the stock in the market (hopefully at a lower price). But in an abusive naked short transaction, the seller doesn't actually borrow the stock, and fails to deliver it to the buyer. For this reason, naked shorting can allow manipulators to force prices down far lower than would be possible in legitimate short-selling conditions.

Today's Commission actions, which are the result of rulemaking under the Administrative Procedure Act, go beyond its previously issued emergency order, which was limited to the securities of financial firms with access to the Federal Reserve's Primary Dealer Credit Facility. Because the agency's exercise of its emergency authority is limited to 30 days, the previous order under Section 12(k)(2) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 expired on Aug. 12, 2008.

The Commission's actions were as follows:

Hard T+3 Close-Out Requirement; Penalties for Violation Include
Prohibition of Further Short Sales, Mandatory Pre-Borrow

The Commission adopted, on an interim final basis, a new rule requiring that short sellers and their broker-dealers deliver securities by the close of business on the settlement date (three days after the sale transaction date, or T+3) and imposing penalties for failure to do so.

If a short sale violates this close-out requirement, then any broker-dealer acting on the short seller's behalf will be prohibited from further short sales in the same security unless the shares are not only located but also pre-borrowed. The prohibition on the broker-dealer's activity applies not only to short sales for the particular naked short seller, but to all short sales for any customer.

Although the rule will be effective immediately, the Commission is seeking comment during a period of 30 days on all aspects of the rule. The Commission expects to follow further rulemaking procedures at the expiration of the comment period.

Exception for Options Market Makers from Short Selling
Close-Out Provisions in Reg SHO Repealed

The Commission approved a final rule to eliminate the options market maker exception from the close-out requirement of Rule 203(b)(3) in Regulation SHO. This rule change also becomes effective at 12:01 a.m. ET on Thursday, Sept. 18, 2008.

As a result, options market makers will be treated in the same way as all other market participants, and required to abide by the hard T+3 closeout requirements that effectively ban naked short selling.

Rule 10b-21 Short Selling Anti-Fraud Rule

The Commission adopted Rule 10b-21, which expressly targets fraudulent short selling transactions. The new rule covers short sellers who deceive broker-dealers or any other market participants. Specifically, the new rule makes clear that those who lie about their intention or ability to deliver securities in time for settlement are violating the law when they fail to deliver. This rule also becomes effective at 12:01 a.m. ET on Thursday.

Obama is The Most Un-American Candidate

Dateline USA....

Like putting lipstick on a pig....

No matter how hard the mainstream media try to normalize Barack Hussein Obama--even Bill O'Reilly "looked into his eyes" and assured Fox News viewers that Obama is "no wimp"--they can't change the fact that he is the most un-American candidate ever to win the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. Next to BHO, George McGovern and Jimmy Carter look like regular guys.

Whereas McGovern and Carter were influenced by radicals, Obama is a radical--a closet, Third World-style socialist, driven by dreams from

*his Communist-leaning, Kenyan father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., who, while working as a Nairobi bureaucrat, argued for eliminating private farming and nationalizing businesses "owned by Asians and Europeans" and massive taxes on the rich to "redistribute our economic gains to the benefit of all;"

*his childhood Communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, an American Communist Party member, identified only as "Frank" in Obama's memoir; and

*a crypto-Communist, Saul Alinsky, the father of community organizing as a cover for revolutionary change. whose ideas, methods, and tactics--"rules for radicals," as he put it in his how-to book of the same title--Obama has used so effectively throughout his political career and Presidential campaign.

Obama would change America, alright: he would bury it. His wealth transfer/taxation policies would deepen and prolong the recession and probably plunge the economy into a depression; and his oppressive community service plan would create a vast federal bureaucracy and allow for the drafting and indoctrination of millions of young Americans for a never-ending crusade for "social justice"--code for class warfare and class envy. Obama's anti-energy program would leave massive oil and gas and coal reserves in the ground, forever end the possible exploitation of shale oil, and put nuclear power on permanent hold, resulting in a greater dependence on foreign oil. Fraudulent, manmade climate change/carbon credit and taxation schemes would cripple American industry, impoverish millions of ordinary Americans, and create a bonanza of trading riches for a handful of investment banking firms already preparing for the next big bubble--the global buying, selling and leveraging of hot air (Obama's specialty, when you stop to think about it). His anti-gun campaign would attack the Constitutional right to bear arms in order to bring about the disarming of the American civilian population--in line with United Nations proposals.

In contrast with un-American Obama, John McCain will defend the Constitution and put America--not the UN--first. Like a modern-day Teddy Roosevelt, McCain will lead the charge for re-industrialization and reform of the financial services industry. Unlike Obama, who sees the government as the source of all wealth, McCain understands that a country is only as strong as its productive capacity. President Obama, like a well trained community organizer, would fight for "programs." President McCain will put America back to work, manufacturing, mining, drilling.

It should be the McCain mantra: manufacturing, mining, drilling.

IAEA: Iran Worked on Nuclear Missile

Foreign Confidential....

There were ominous and depressing developments on Tuesday regarding Iran.

1. Diplomats said the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) presented evidence indicating the Islamist nation secretly tried to modify a Shahab-3 missile cone to fit a nuclear payload.

Iran dismissed the evidence--documents and photographs--as fabrications.

2. Iran that it has put the elite Revolutionary Guard in charge of defending the country's territorial Persian Gulf waters in what appeared to be a hardening of its stance in the vital oil route. The regular Iranian navy was responsible for Iranian defenses in the Gulf until the new order.

The Guard controls Iran's ballistic missile arsenal, fleet of fast boats--capable of carrying out swarming-style attacks--and legions of suicide bombers and other terrorists.

Iran has repeatedly threatened to close the narrow Hormuz Strait at the mouth of the Gulf if the United States or Israel attacks it over Iran's nuclear program. Around 40 percent of the world's oil passes through Hormuz.

3. Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama seemed to pick up support for his proposed "engagement" of Iran from five former US Secretaries of State. Even Henry Kissinger said he was in favor of negotiating with the mullahocracy. In addition to Kissinger, Colin Powell, Madeleine Albright, Warren Christopher, and James Baker said they favored bilateral dialogue and negotiations over Iran's nuclear program at a forum hosted by The George Washington University and taped for broadcast on CNN. Their comments are certain (a) to encourage nuclear-arming Iran to continue to stall and play for time in the hope of an Obama election victory, and (b) to further frighten Israel, which is running out of time for dealing with the Iranian nuclear threat.

EDITOR'S COMMENT: Kissinger's endorsement of "engagement" is a terrible disappointment. As the son of German Jewish refugees, and a former student of the late, great Hans J. Morgenthau, who was the father of modern political realism, Kissinger, a brilliant statesman and political scientist in his own right, must recall that the key lesson of World War II is that it is impossible to appease a totalitarian power committed to an imperialist foreign policy--i.e. a policy of overthrowing the status quo. Intentions matter most, Morgenthau taught. Had Hitler not intended to conquer Europe (and dominate the world), appeasement might have worked; the dictator might have been satisfied with small victories and limited territorial gains. But the monster had other ideas, larger ambitions; therefore, appeasement was destined to fail. Instead of preventing war, appeasement made war inevitable--on Germany's terms. Similarly, attempts to appease, accommodate, "understand" and reason with Islamist Iran are also destined to fail. At a minimum, Iran intends to destroy Israel, drive the US out of the Middle East, and dominate Europe.

The US and Israel should act now to end the Iranian threat--before it ends the US and Israel.

Words of Wisdom

But the ugly wound on our planet that is Tehran's deranged regime can't be allowed to fester much longer. A nuclear-armed Iran may just try to act on its threats to raze Israel. And it will certainly try to bully intimidated nations in the Middle East and elsewhere.

Diplomacy can be effective if both sides are rational. But when outlaw governments are in control, as in Tehran, diplomats' failures turn up as legions of battlefield corpses. Sometimes a short burst of force is the only way to ensure a long spell of peace.

Islamic Terrorists Threaten Paul McCartney

Foreign Confidential....

Imagine this: Islamic terrorists plotting to kill Sir Paul McCartney.

A sickening and insane idea? Of course. Unfortunately, however, intelligence experts say it is also a real threat in light of the former Beatle's upcoming concert in Israel.

Britain's Sunday Express reported Sunday that an Islamic leader warned that the 66-year-old McCartney could be the target of a suicide bombing if he goes ahead with his first performance in the Jewish state.

McCartney plans to arrive in Israel as part of a world tour. He is scheduled to give a single concert at Tel Aviv's Yarkon Park on September 25.

Threatened by Pro-Al Qaeda Preacher

Omar Bakri, a pro-Al Qaeda Muslim preacher who lived in London for 20 years before moving to Lebanon, said McCartney's decision to perform as part of Israel's 60th anniversary celebrations has turned him into the enemy of Muslims worldwide.

"If he values his life, Mr. McCartney must not come to Israel," Bakri was quoted as saying. "He will not be safe there. The sacrifice operatives will be waiting for him."

Bakri added: "Instead of supporting the people of Palestine in their suffering, McCartney is celebrating the atrocities of the occupiers," Bakri was quoted as saying. "The one who is under occupation is supposed to be getting the help."

In December 2004, Bakri warned that Muslims would give the West "a 9/11, day after day after day," if Western governments did not change their policies. Known to be closely linked to al-Qaeda, Bakri released prepared statements from Osama Binladen after the 1998 United States embassy bombings.

Preacher Praised 9/11 Attackers

Last Thursday, on the seventh anniversary of 9/11, Bakri addressed about 100 Muslim extremists in East London via satellite. His appearance was greeted by cheers of "faith" and "God is great" as he claimed to have foiled a bomb plot against him by agents of the British Government.

Another speaker said the West should "listen to the warnings."

Still another, Saiful Islam, praised Binladen and Al-Qaeda for their "courage" in retaliating against the "dictatorship and oppression" of the West.

McCartney has also resisted pressure from pro-Palestinian groups to cancel the show.

"I was approached by different groups and political bodies who asked me not to come here. I refused. I do what I think, and I have many friends who support Israel," McCartney said in an interview with Yedioth Ahronoth. Pro-Palestinian groups frequently call on international academics and prominent cultural figures to boycott Israel.

McCartney told Israel TV Channel 2: “I was approached by different groups and political bodies who asked me not to come here. I refused. I do what I think and I have many friends who support Israel.”

Iran Vows to Back Hamas Until Israel's Collapse

Foreign Confidential....

Nuclear-arming Iran's maniac-in-chief, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, provided fresh proof Friday (as if more proof were needed) that international Islam is an implacable enemy, regardless of its internal theological and ideological differences.

The Iranian news agency Khabar reported that Ahmadinejad vowed to keep on backing Hamas until Israel's collapse.

Ahmadinejad reportedly told Gaza-based Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh in a telephone conversation that Iran believes its support to Palestinian people is a part of its religious and national duty.

Iran will back Hamas “until the big victory feast which is the collapse of the Zionist regime," Ahamadinejad was quoted as telling his terrorist client.

The Iranian mullachocracy's missile mad-front man was also reported to have said that the Palestinian organization's "resistance" to Israel (e.g. suicide bombings and rocket attacks) would forever be "a source of pride for all Musliims."

The Iranian news agency said Ahamadinejad added: "Iran does not recognize IsraelŃ—s right to exist and will support Hamas until the world gets rid of the Zionists."

Saudi Judge Approves Killing TV Network Owners

Foreign Confidential....

From Saudi Arabia comes the following revealing news item:

AP reports that the country's top judiciary official has issued a religious decree saying it is permissible to kill the owners of satellite TV networks that broadcast immoral content.

The news service says the 79-year-old Sheik Saleh al-Lihedan said Thursday that satellite channels cause the "deviance of thousands of people."

Al-Lihedan is chief of the kingdom's highest tribunal, the Supreme Judiciary Council.

Foaming Fatwas

Saudi Arabia's judiciary is made up of Islamic clerics whose decrees, or fatwas, on everyday issues are widely respected. Their fatwas do not have the weight of law. In the courts, cleric-judges rule according to Islamic law, but interpretations can vary.

The aging lunatic was answering listeners' questions during the daily "Light in the Path" radio program in which he and other clerical fascists make rulings on what is permissible under barbaric Islamic law.

One caller asked about Islam's view of the owners of satellite TV channels that show "bad programs" during Ramadan.

"I want to advise the owners of these channels, who broadcast calls for such indecency and impudence ... and I warn them of the consequences," the crazy cleric aid.

"What does the owner of these networks think, when he provides seduction, obscenity and vulgarity?" he said.

"Those calling for corrupt beliefs, certainly it's permissible to kill them," he said. "Those calling for sedition, those who are able to prevent it but don't, it is permissible to kill them."

Encouraging Jihad in Iraq

Among the most viewed Arabic satellite networks is Rotana, which airs movies and music videos. It is owned by Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal--an Obama-backer, billionaire businessman, and member of the royal family whom Forbes ranks as the world's 13th richest person.

Al-Lihedan sparked controversy in the past by issuing a decree that Saudis can join jihadists to fight US troops in Iraq.

"If someone knows that he is capable of entering Iraq in order to join the fight, and if his intention is to raise up the word of God, then he is free to do so," he said, warning that entering Iraq is risky because "evil satellites and drone aircraft" watch the borders. But going and killing Americans is religiously permissible, he said.

"The lawfulness of his action is in fighting an enemy who is fighting Muslims and came for war," he said.

He also said those donating money to the fight in Iraq should be sure it actually helps the cause.

The kingdom's top cleric recently banned birthday cake as un-Islamic.

Another leading cleric recently told a TV audience that Western "beasts" use colored underwear to "conceal their filth" and that Allah wants Islam to rule the world.

Analysts agree that the clerics and judges show the real face of Saudi Arabia.

Their Dinner With Mahmoud: US Church Groups Planning to Break Ramadan Fast With Ahmadinejad

Dateline USA....

In the years leading up to World War II, misguided, masochistic pacifists and leftists joined right-wing, pro-Nazi isolationists and European advocates of appeasement in opposing efforts to combat Hitler Germany.

The pacifist Ghandi, who wrote letters to Hitler, addressing the monster as "my friend," transcended the politics of appeasement. He argued that the Jews should accept their deaths at the hands of the Nazis, and that they should die with dignity--without fighting--as martyrs.

History is repeating itself, as shown by news that several US religious groups are planning to dine with Iran's Hitlerian, Holocaust-denying maniac-in-chief, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during his upcoming visit to the United States.

The Mennonite Central Committee, the Quakers, the World Council of Churches--which has launched its own version of a global jihad against Israel--Religions for Peace, and the American Friends Service Committee are sponsoring the meeting with Ahmadinejad on September 25 in New York City. The Iranian leader, a front man for the nuclear-arming, clerical fascist mullahocracy, has repeatedly threatened to destroy Israel (he likes to use terms like "exterminate" and "wipe off the map") and bomb US military bases across the Middle East. How appetizing for America- and Israel-hating clergy!

The dinner to break the Ramadan fast, called an Iftar, is being billed as an international dialogue between religious leaders and political figures in a conversation "about the role of religions in tackling global challenges and building peaceful societies."

One can only pray for a case of mass food poisoning. That would be divine.

Tolerance of Islam's Rise is Suicidal

The West is asleep at the switch.

Seven years after 9/11, mega-mosques are rising in Europe, and Islamic centers are flourishing and expanding in the United States.

Islam's supporters and sympathizers--including the useful idiots in poliitics, academia, and the media, and America's first Muslim-born, Hamas-endorsed Presidential candidate, Barack Hussein Obama--claim that the spread of Islamic institutions is a good thing, a tribute to Western democratic values and Western ideals of tolerance and pluralism.

Nonsense. The spread of Islam in the West is proof of Western weakness and stupidity--an ingrained, suicidal urge by liberals to tolerate terrorists, extremists, and violent criminals and condemn those who ring the alarm bells and rally to the defense of liberty.

The post-9/11 rise of Islam in Europe and the US is also proof of Islamist cunning and skill.

Simply put, Islamism--the clerical fascist creed spawned by and now firmly in control of an inherently intolerant, backward, and war-like religion, Islam--is using democracy to destroy democracy, Western legal systems to wage lawfare against the West.

Islamic institutions are essentially instruments of conquest and repression--conquest of all those who do not believe in Islam and repression of Muslims living with the reach of these institutions. The mosques and study centers are forward bases and sanctuaries from which campaigns for imposition of barbaric Islamic religious law, establishment and expansion of strategically significant, segregated Muslim spaces, and freedom and protection for Muslim terrorists can be plotted, planned, and conducted.

It is dangerously delusional to dream of reforming Islam or Islamism--idiotic to believe in the emergence of democratic Islam or moderate Islamism. The religion and the political ideology are impossibly intertwined, one and the same for all practical purposes.

Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran and Al Qaeda are all much more popular in the Muslim world than the West's weak-minded political and opinion leaders would have you believe.

Homeland Security Scandal: In Islamizing Michigan, Judges and Candidates Bow to Hezbollah Backers

Dateline USA....

9/12/08 ... only a year and a day since the Islamist incineration of nearly 3,000 innocent Americans ... and the dispatches from the home front in the so-called War on Terror are deeply disturbing.

Debbie Schlussel's report
on developments in Michigan dramatically illustrates how Democrats and Republicans alike are caving in to the Islamist menace. Schlussel writes:

Recently, I told you about Judge Diane Hathaway, the Detroit-area judge who sentenced avowed Hezbollah terrorist Houssein Ali Zorkot to probation. As you'll recall, Zorkot was caught in a Dearbornistan park practicing maneuvers with his AK-47, and announced on his pro-Hezbollah website that he was beginning his personal jihad in the United States. As I noted, because Hathaway gave him probation, Zorkot--a medical student--can likely still become a licensed doctor in Michigan and elsewhere.

Well, Saturday, at the Michigan Democratic Party convention, Democrats nominated Hathaway as their candidate in November for the Michigan Supreme Court.

Unfortunately, Hathaway's race is emblematic of many of the catch-22s in which those of use who care about freedom and fighting jihad find ourselves.

You see, Hathaway's opponent, sitting Michigan Supreme Court Justice, Republican Clifford Taylor, took campaign money from open Hezbollah supporter and key American Hezbollah agent Ali Jawad, who pleaded guilty in federal court to a giant insurance fraud scam involving various members of the Islamic community. In April, John McCain dumped Ali Jawad from his Michigan campaign finance committee.

New Missile Base Proves North Korean Intentions

Overly accommodating, dumbbell diplomats are desperately trying to downplay the "discovery"--i.e. inconvenient exposure to the public--of a new long-range ballistic missile base in North Korea.

The base, located only 30 miles from the Chinese border, is larger, more sophisticated--and more menacing--than Masudan-ri, the base North Korea used to launch a Taepodong-1 missile in 1998 over Japan. A Taepodong-2 missile was launched from there in 2006, but it failed.

News of the new missile base--believed by South Korean intelligence analysts to be 80% completed--comes as international efforts to urge the secretive, Stalinist/Kimist, criminal state to abandon its nuclear program are at an impasse.

Impasse is diplo/media-speak for in the crapper.

In fact, the negotiations with North Korea never had a chance. Absent regime change, Pyongyang will never--repeat, never--abandon atomic arms. (And its Islamist ally, Iran, will never give up its nuclear weapons program--but that's another story.)

The North's ultimate goal, as we have insisted for about three years, is an arsenal of intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of accurately delivering nuclear payloads to the United States. (That is also Iran's ultimate goal--again, another story.)

Islamo-Nazis Blame US For 9/11

Atlas Shrugs has assembled a package of 9/11-themed videos from the Muslim world that should shock even the most cynical and hardened analysts. Click here.

The videos provide powerful proof that for all practical purposes organized Islam and Islamism are today one and the same. The mushrooming mosques and Islamic centers, financed by Saudi Arabia as part of the kingdom's campaign to export jihad and buy domestic peace and security, constitute a growing global menace.

Watch the videos, keeping in mind that Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, Hamas, and Libya have all effectively endorsed Barack Hussein Obama for President of the United States. This is a fact, not an opinion. Regardless of how he feels about the matter, the Islamo-Nazis believe his ascendancy to power to be in their best interest. One reason: Only eight days after 9/11, Obama urged the US government to respond to the attacks with caution and restraint, and spoke most passionately about defending the rights of Muslims--including non-citizens. Another reason: Obama backs unconditional talks with nuclear-arming Iran, which needs more time to achieve a nuclear breakthrough that will enable it to produce nuclear weapons.

VIDEO POSTSCRIPT: Click below for Sean Hannity's Fox News interview with Obama supporter Imam Musa. He heads The As-Sabiqun movement, which is based in Washington, D.C., and claims to have branches in Oakland, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento, and Philadelphia. The organization was created by Imam Musa in the early 1990s, at the Masjid Al-Islam mosque in Philadelphia, PA. Its stated goal is creation of an Islamic state in the US by 2050.

Seven Years After September 11 ...

Never again!

If only it were that simple....

Seven years after Muslim terrorists slaughtered nearly 3,000 innocent Americans on September 11, 2001, the United States is not even close to winning the war against radical Islam, and is still dangerously vulnerable to Islamist nuclear, biological, and chemical attacks. Al Qaeda leader Osama Binladen and Taliban leader Mullah Omar and their most senior henchmen are still at large, the Taliban is again threatening Afghanistan, and Islamist Iran is rapidly approaching a uranium enrichment breakthrough that will allow it to produce nuclear weapons. The combination of nuclear warheads--the technology for which Iran has already acquired--and intercontinental ballistic missiles, which Iran is developing under cover of a space program, spells doom for Western civilization.

More disturbing, seven years after Sept. 11, defeatist Democrats aim to demilitarize the war against Islamism and downplay its importance.

Still more disturbing, seven years after Sept. 11, the Democrats have nominated as their Presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama, a mysterious, natural-born Muslim (according to Islamic religious law) whose academic, community organizing, literary and political careers were sponsored and assisted--and maybe even conceived and created--by individuals sympathetic to the perpetrators of the Sept. 11 atrocities--the worst-ever attacks on American soil.

A partial listing of Obama-backing villains is set forth below.

Edward Said, a talented, anti-American intellectual and brilliant liar, who was Obama's English professor at Columbia University and may have ghost-written his memoir, Dreams From My Father. Said, an American citizen with a privileged upbringing--who was born in Egypt--parlayed a fabricated tale of being born in and exiled from pre-Israeli independence Jerusalem into becoming, arguably, the most famous and influential Palestinian "refugee" after PLO chief Yasser Arafat--who was also born in Egypt. Unlike Arafat, Said sided with the most radical--rejectionist--PLO factions and never accepted the two-state solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict (creation of a Palestinian mini-state in the so-called West Bank and Gaza alongside Israel).

Bill Ayers, unrepentant former member of the ultra-left-wing, terrorist Weather Underground, in whose home Obama's political career was formally launched.

Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, aka Don Warden, a notorious, America-hating anti-Semite, black separatist, and former adviser to the criminal, pseudo-Maoist Black Panthers. Texas-born Warden is a link between radical groups--especially in the black community--and multi-billionaire Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, who may have funded Obama's above-referenced memoir--and probably subsidized his Harvard Law School education.

Tony Rezko, the (now imprisoned) Syrian-born crook. Supposedly a Christian, he was nevertheless deeply involved with anti-Israel Jabir Herbert Muhammad, son of Nation of Islam (NOI) founder Elijah Muhammad.

Louis Farrakhan, longtime NOI leader--a black Nazi commonly believed to have supported the assassination of Malcolm X.

Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor and spiritual adviser of 20 years, an admirer of Farrakhan, who infamously blamed--and damned--America for the Sept. 11 attacks, and subsequently published and distributed Hamas propaganda under Church cover.

Father Michael Pfleger, Obama's foaming, former friend and adviser, a fanatically anti-American, anti-Israel, pro-NOI Catholic priest.

Enough said. Obama's nomination is an insult to the memory of the Sept. 11 victims.

GUEST COMMENT: Investor's Business Daily reminds us that just eight days after the attacks--three days after his pastor's sickening "God damn America" Sunday sermon--Obama urged Americans to understand the so-called root causes of terrorism. IBD:

The July 20 issue of the New Yorker magazine got a lot of attention for its cover, which carried a "satirical" cartoon depicting Michelle and Barack Obama that Obama supporters found tasteless and offensive. Buried inside that issue's feature story, however, was a reaction by Obama to 9/11 that all voters should find even more tasteless and offensive.

The article reprised a piece published in Chicago's Hyde Park Herald on Sept. 19, 2001, and written by a then-unknown and otherwise undistinguished state senator from Illinois. The senator, a former community organizer, wrote that after tightening security at our airports and repairing our intelligence networks, we "must also engage . . . in the more difficult task of understanding the sources of such madness."

According to Barack Obama, the madness that drove terrorists to turn passenger jets into manned cruise missiles aimed at our centers of finance, government and military power "grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair."
As if the answer to the attacks should have been food stamps for al-Qaida.

Sen. Obama advised caution and warned of overreacting. "We will have to make sure, despite our rage, that any U.S. military action takes into account the lives of innocent civilians abroad," he wrote. "We will have to be unwavering in opposing bigotry or discrimination directed against neighbors and friends of Middle Eastern descent."

We should also be just as concerned, he felt, with American anger and bigotry as we were about al-Qaida.

In an opinion piece in Commentary magazine, writer Abe Greenwald commented on Obama's belief that the 9/11 attacks were rooted in poverty and despair. "Strange," he called it, "considering our attackers were wealthy and educated, connected and ecstatic."

As Greenwald put it, Obama "could have asked (terrorist and colleague) Bill Ayers, 'Bill, did your 'failure of empathy' stem from your impoverished upbringing as the son of the CEO of Commonwealth Edison?" Did poverty and despair also cause the Weather Underground member and host of Obama's first fundraiser to bomb government buildings?

Fact is, the roster of terrorists and their handlers reads like a list of of Ivy Leaguers:

Osama bin Laden, the son of a Saudi billionaire, studied engineering. Khalid Sheik Mohammed, architect of 9/11 and other major attacks, has a degree in mechanical engineering. Mohammed Atta, who flew a jet into the World Trade Center, is the son of a lawyer and earned a master's degree in urban planning at Hamburg University. Ayman al-Zawahri is an eye surgeon. Seven doctors were involved in the London-Glasgow bomb plots.

You get the idea, even if Barack Obama doesn't.
