Chinese Spies in U.S. Portend War With China (November 10, 2005) - Espionage Success Seen as Prelude to War. According to federal investigators, four people recently arrested in Los Angeles are part of an extensive network of Chinese military intelligence agents operating here in the United States. The alleged spies have been working in the U.S. since 1990 and, according to documents obtained from the suspects, they may have compromised some of America’s most important weapon systems. All four were arrested and charged with theft of government property. The charges are expected to be upgraded to espionage or espionage-related, according to law enforcement officials. According to investigators, the ring consisted of Chi Mak and his wife, Rebecca Laiwah Chiu, along with Chi’s brother, Tai Wang Mak, and his wife, Fuk Heung Li. Documents found at the search of Chi's home in Downey, California, showed that sensitive data on Aegis battle management systems have been passed to communist China. Chi reportedly holds a secret-level security clearance and worked on more than 200 U.S. defense and military contracts as an electrical engineer with the defense contractor Power Paragon, a subsidiary of L3/SPD Technologies/Power Systems Group in Anaheim, Calif. In addition, Chi had access to details on U.S. aircraft carriers and once was aboard the USS Stennis. One U.S. China expert, who asked not to be named, said: “This is a national crisis. As a nation we must confront the reality that China is actively mobilizing the Chinese-American community to subvert the security of the United States of America.” more...
France to show rioters the door (November 09, 2005) - Struggling to restore order after nearly two weeks of nightly street battles and car burnings, the French government demanded Wednesday that foreigners found guilty of rioting be expelled from the country, regardless of whether they are in France legally or illegally. The hard line came as the violence appeared to be ebbing. Compared with Monday night, the number of cars burned Tuesday fell by nearly half, to 617, and the unrest appeared to wane further Wednesday despite new clashes between youths and police in Toulouse, in southwestern France. On Tuesday, the government declared a state of emergency for only the second time in half a century, authorizing local officials in Paris and 37 other cities and towns to impose a curfew. Overnight curfews for minors were declared in Nice, Cannes and other Riviera resorts, and in several towns in Normandy. In Paris, where the streets teem with tourists rather than marauding gangs, a curfew will be imposed “if the situation requires it,” the police chief said.
The government’s imposition of curfews has been widely popular here, and when Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy called for the swift deportations, he was applauded in the Parliament. Sarkozy said 120 foreigners, some here legally, had been found guilty of rioting since the unrest began outside Paris on Oct. 27. “I have asked the prefects to deport them from our national territory without delay, including those who have residency visas,” he said. Human-rights groups objected, saying such “collective expulsion” was both illegal and needlessly provocative. It does not go beyond existing French law, however, according to an immigration lawyer, Stephane Halimi. Foreigners convicted of a crime are subject to losing their residence permits, and they are often deported after serving their sentences in French jails. more...
More Moslem Destruction of Temple Mount Feared (November 09, 2005) - The Committee to Prevent Temple Mount Artifacts Desecration warns that Muslim Waqf construction works are once again underway - this time at the Temple entrance path taken by Jews 2,000 years ago. The Committee sent a letter on the matter this week to the Prime Minister and to the Director of the Antiquities Authority. The letter states that new information has been received indicating the Waqf’s intention to continue its “refurbishing” works on the Mount. Yisrael Caspi, an active member of the Committee, told Arutz-7, “For some years now we have been standing guard to try to have the Waqf stop its destruction works. The Waqf is trying to take over the Mount and make it a totally Moslem site, with no Jewish presence.” “The problem is that the Prime Minister has neutralized all other elements - the Minister of Public Security, the Education Ministry, and the Antiquities Authority - and has taken full control of the situation. And the cycle is always the same: The government gives the Waqf a permit for refurbishing and the like, then the Waqf starts building and turning the area into a mosque, while destroying or hiding Jewish artifacts, and then we are not even allowed into the sites. This cycle has to be stopped!” Caspi said that the latest information indicates that the Waqf plans to begin work at the site known as the Hatunya, adjacent to the Southern Wall excavations and the Dung Gate entrance to the Western Wall. more...
Al-Qaida Ops Busted at Mexican Border? (November 09, 2005) - In announcing the introduction of legislation aimed at preventing illegal aliens from getting driver’s licenses yesterday, a North Carolina Republican member of the House of Representatives casually dropped a bombshell that went over the heads of most of the media covering the event – that three members of al-Qaida were recently captured trying to enter the U.S. “This isn’t aimed at any one race,” said Sue Myrick, who is being mentioned as a potential candidate for governor of the state. “Our main concern is: Who’s in our state? This is a critical issue today. They just arrested, down on the border, a couple of weeks ago, three al-Qaida members who came across from Mexico into the United States.” That’s how she was quoted in her local daily – the Charlotte Observer. An audio recording of the event confirms the quotation’s accuracy. There was no follow-up by the reporters present. more...
The Science of Riding Gravity Waves (November 09, 2005) - Many expect it to be one of the biggest scientific breakthroughs of our age: “There’ll certainly be a Nobel Prize in it for somebody,” says Jim Hough. The UK professor is standing on a farm road in Lower Saxony, Germany, with a crop of beet on one side and sprouts on the other. But the real interest lies at his feet - with some shabby, corrugated metal sheeting. For a moment, it looks like an upturned pig trough until you realise it stretches for hundreds of metres. The sheeting hides a trench and, within it, the vacuumed tube of an experiment Hough believes will finally detect the most elusive of astrophysical phenomena - gravitational waves. The Glasgow University scientist has been chasing these “ripples” in space-time for more than 30 years and feels certain he is now just a matter of months away from bagging his quarry. “It will be a big event for two reasons: it will be yet another confirmation that Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity is correct, but it will also open up a new kind of astronomy that will allow us to look inside the most violent events in the Universe.” A new kind of astronomy requires a new type of “telescope”, and that’s just what Hough and UK-German colleagues have been developing on farmland a short drive from Hanover. It is called GEO 600. more...
Boston Globe to Report U.S. Cutting Diplomatic Ties with Syria (November 09, 2005) - The United States has cut off nearly all contact with the Syrian government as the Bush administration steps up a campaign to weaken and isolate President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, according to US and Syrian officials, the Boston Globe will report in Tuesday editions, RAW STORY has learned. “The United States has halted high-level diplomatic meetings, limited military coordination on Syria’s border with Iraq, and ended dialogue with Syria’s Finance Ministry on amending its banking laws to block terrorist financing,” the Globe’s Farah Stockman and Thanassis Cambanis write. “In recent months, as distrust between the two countries widened, the United States also declined a proposal from Syria to revive intelligence cooperation with Syria, according to Syria’s ambassador to the United States, Imad Moustapha, and a US official.” They add, “The US-Syrian confrontation has sharpened just as Syria is also facing pressure from many Arab and European governments - as well as the United States - over Syria’s suspected role in the assassination of the former prime minister of Lebanon, Rafik Hariri.” more...
