Title: NYT DOES THE BIDDING OF PALESTINIAN "GUNMEN"
Source:
Body: Here I go again. But the American paper of record never ceases to amaze me."Palestinian Group Executes 2 suspected of Aiding Israel" <A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2003/10/24/international/middleeast/24MIDE.html">reads the headline. </a>Wow! I thought. Finally the NYT exposes the"rule of law" prevalent in the Palestinian Authority. I even ignore the subheading"Israel plans to build 300 new houses in the West Bank." I am past being agitated by the paper's repeated equation of murder with home building. I am glad that they finally focused the light on the similarity between Saddam's Iraq and Arafat's Palestine. Then comes the shocker -"Such attacks often draw little attention (why?) but the gunmen responsible for this shooting sought to publicize their deed both beforehand and afterward." No analysis of the gunmen's wishes follows. Merely a recitatation of the"gunmen" accusations. In other words, the reporter admits that the paper followed the Palestinian gunmen wish to have their first 75 murders covered up, the NYT followed their wishes and to publicize number 76 and 77. <P>Bravo! <P><!--endFragment--><P><a href="http://technorati.com/claim/kcta5zkyqq" rel="me">Technorati Profile</a>

Title: MOSLEM ANTI-SEMITISM IS BACK WITH A VENGENCE
Source:
Body: Dan Pipes <a href="http://www.danielpipes.org/article/1294">is right.</A> Mahathir's antisemitism is not an exception but the rule. But, as I have demonstrated in my article<A href="http://hnn.us/articles/664.html">"Blool libel" </A> it is far from new. What is rather encouraging is that it is finally getting the attention it deserves. What is also getting exposed is the antisemitic aspects of the anti-war, anti-globalist movement. Phillip Gailey <a href="http://www.sptimes.com/2003/10/26/news_pf/Columns/Anti_Semitism_s_globa.shtml"> exposes </A>that connection in the St. Persburg Times. <P>Here are some pertinent lines: <P><BLOCKQUOTE>It would be wrong to suggest that the antiglobalization movement has been hijacked by anti-Semitic forces, but, as Strauss writes,"it helps enable anti-Semitism by peddling conspiracy theories." Some of the conspiracy theories would be laughable if so many people didn't believe them. For example, the Canadian-based Center for Research on Globalization sells books that claim the 9/11 terrorist attacks were"most likely a special covert action" to"further the goals of corporate globalization." People who believe that will believe anything, including the garbage about Jews being the hidden hand controlling the global economy. <P>It is disturbing that so few leaders of the antiglobalization movement have spoken out against the ugly displays of anti-Semitism within its ranks."The very same antiglobalization movement that prides itself on staging counterprotests against neo-Nazis who crash their rallies links arms with protesters who wave the swastika in the name of Palestinian rights," Strauss writes.</blockquote><P><!--endFragment--><P>

Title: MAHATHIR, DEMOCRACY AND HUMAN RIGHTS
Source:
Body: I know I have previously shared with you my immediate response to the Malaysian premier speech. Unfortunately, listening to a most informative lecture given by Professor Menahem Ben-Sasson on Jewish and Muslim relations refocused my attention on the prepostreous claim that Jews invented socialism, Communism, human rights, and democracy,"so that persecuting them would appear to be wrong, so they may enjoy equal rights with others.""Flattery will get you everywhere" writes Saul Singer in today's National Review ignoring the unfortunate fact that for Mahathir as for his fellow Muslim leaders the demand for equal rights regardless of religious belief amounts to an attack on basic Islamic tenents. Christians, Jews, not to mentions Hindu idolators should not be treated as equals. They should be treated as second or third class citizens made to pay additional taxes and humbled while so doing. The degree to which Muslim states followed these strictures varied. Even today, Jews cannot buy land in moderate Jordan, Christians cannot be seen praying in Saudi Arabia and the Copts in Egypt suffer from numerous legal disadvantages. <p>I could go on. Suffice to say - Just as Muslim law does not accomodate easily gender equality, it does not accomodate easily religious equality. Mahathir did not intend to complement Jews, he intended to taint those (including Muslims) who wish to see democracy and respect for human rights flourish in Muslim lands. <P><!--endFragment--><P>

Title: NYT IS PAYING FOR ACCESS AGAIN
Source:
Body: It has been only a few months since Burns and Jordan admitted that reporters paid dictators for access with good press. Neil MacFarquhar's reporting from Syria and Egypt and Elaine Sciolino reporting from Iran demonstrate that not only do they continue to do so shamelessly but they share the dictators' anti American agenda. <A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2003/10/28/international/middleeast/28GOLF.html">Click here: Syrians Gamely Tackle the Latest Western Import: Golf </a> Poor rich Syrians. Given the unreasonable pressure from the US to stop aiding and abetting Jihadists, isn't it wonderful they can enjoy a few hours of golf? Syria, like Saddam's Iraq (by the way according to Pollack, Bashar and Qusai were great friends!), reminds me of the Collingswood boys starving in plain site. But do not count on the NYT to expose the painful truth or write a word about the Syrian OCCUPATION of Lebanon! <p>Click here: <A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2003/10/29/international/middleeast/29LETT.html"> Arab World Is of Two Minds About U.S. Involvement in Iraq </a> In Cairo, MacFarquhar reports about Egyptian papers attitude towards the American presence in Iraq without mentioning that the editors are appointed by the government and are heavily censored. Senior officials do not have to say much, they leave the job to their puppet press. Egypt has been ruled for decades by a man who unlike his predecessors is afraid to nominate a vice president. Here is a topic for a visiting reporter. <p>Click here:<a HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2003/10/29/international/middleeast/29LETT.html"> A Change of Heart in Tehran? Is It Time to Talk? </a> Elaine Sciolino pay for access by blaming the US for everything that is wrong in Iran and contrasting European sensitivity with American bluntness without noting that it was fear of American action and a which to remain players which led Europeans to Teheran. Most glaringly, Sciolino recommended saving the hide of Iranian clerics without mentioning their support for terrorists who no longer kill only Jews but also Americans! <p>To read that"A commission in Iran's reformist-held parliament accused the hardline-run judiciary Tuesday of grave irregularities in the arrest and killing in custody of Canadian-Iranian photographer Zahra Kazemi, you need to Click here: <A HREF="http://iranmania.com/News/ArticleView/Default.asp?ArchiveNews=Yes&NewsCode=19136&NewsKind=CurrentAffairs">IranMania News </a><p>If Americans do not know much about foreign lands, it is because foreign correspondents do such a dishonest job when pretending to inform them! <P><!--endFragment--><P>

Title: WAR IS NOT A COURTROOM
Source:
Body: It is hard to belive that has not be so long since Kissinger wrote a book asking whether the US needs a foreign policy. Now, we hardly have time for domestic policy. But then as everyone knows that(except some staff members of the Senate intelligence committee) when the house burns it is not the time to reorganize the furniture. <P>Yesterday, George W. Bush did what he should have done a year ago but thought too risky. He told the American people that we are at war to regain our freedom and domestic tranquility. Our strategy is to democratize the Middle East. As Kasparov, the world's best chess player pointed out, Iraq is a difficult battle field since it is a triangle surrounded by three terror abetting states - Saudi Arabia, Syria and Iran. Losing is not an option and internationalization is a fantasy. UN will bug out and NATO is not doing a better job in Afghanistan. The faster we pacify Iraq, the less likely it is that the shooting war will have to expand. <P>To win we need to treat the Sunni triangle as a battlefield, not a courtroom. At the moment we are not doing so and no one knows that better than the Sunni security service members who told French television that it is not their job or intention to fight the pro Saddam forces (yes, this is a line taken directly from the PLO playbook) and that those forces know that. Note the decline in the attacks on American trained Iraqi forces. <P>In a letter to the NYT Gary Sick argues that victory does not justify"morally hazardous" means. I could not agree more. But there is a difference between actions which are"morally hazardous" at war and actions which are"morally hazardous" at peace. By ignoring that difference during the Cold War, the Carter administration to which Sick belonged, abandoned the Iranian people at their time of need (no, the Ayatolla was not ELECTED) and ushered in decades of military strife in the Middle East and Central Asia. Now that is what I call a REAL"morally hazardous" action! <P><!--endFragment--><P>

Title: SYRIA DID THE TORTURING - NOT THE US OR CANADA
Source:
Body: Another"morally hazardous" action is trying to stop Canadian-American cooperation in tracking down suspected terrorists by blaming the torture of a suspected terrorist in Syria not on Syria but on Canada and the US. Would critics have preferred holding the man in Guantanamo Bay? <p>Let's face it. To protect our civil liberties we, as a society, can afford to free rapists and murderers. We cannot afford to free terrorists - We did so after the first trade center bombing (not only did we not hold Iraq responsible for that bombing but as the NYT revealed yesterday we did not even insist that it turn over the perpetrators) and we got the second trade center bombing - 9/11. The price is too high! <P><!--endFragment--><P>

Title: AL QAIDA BASE IN BOSNIA UNDERMINES PEACE IN AFGHANISTAN
Source:
Body: Bosnia was a mess but one of the unspoked reasons Americans helped Jihadists in the Balkans was to demonstrate to Moslems that the US is not their enemies. Serb claims of Al Qaida involvement was dismissed. This is how the Bosnian Moslems are repaying NATO: <P>Bosnia <a href="http://www.cdi.org/program/document.cfm?DocumentID=1841&from_page=../index.cfm">Connection: </A> Global Information Systems (GIS) sources, stationed in Sarajevo report that Bosnian-based Islamist terrorists are involved with anti-Coalition efforts in Afghanistan. The NATO Stabilization Force (SFOR) is reportedly aware of the linkage and conducted a raid of a Tuzla military barracks in September 2003. A surface-to-air missile (SAM) that brought down a helicopter in Afghanistan may have come from Bosnia. Several SAMs were seized in the aforementioned raid. P><!--endFragment--><P>
