Gaza militants pledge bloody fight with Israel (July 6, 2006) - Palestinian militants battling Israeli troops in the streets of northern Gaza threatened a long and bloody campaign on Thursday as Israeli forces pushed deeper into the coastal strip. “We are ready to fight for as long as it takes and die as martyrs,” said a bearded, 25-year-old fighter who gave his name as Abu al-Bara, taking a break from the clashes with Israeli troops, who were sent into northern Gaza to curb rocket fire. Abu al-Bara said many young men had joined his group, a small faction that is part of the Popular Resistance Committees, and suicide bombers were preparing to carry out attacks. “We are Muslims, our God will protect us,” he said, crouching in an alleyway off the streets of Atatrah with two other uniformed fighters as Israeli helicopters flew above. At least two militants were killed in Atatrah on Thursday and several others injured, including an armed man who dashed into a house that was hit moments later by a missile fired from an Israeli drone. A total of 12 Palestinians were killed in the fighting on Thursday. Doctors said at least 8 of them were civilians. more...

Volkswagen Unveils “Astonishing” Self-Driving Car - Soon to Make Its Way to a Showroom Near You (July 7, 2006) - The folks at Volkswagen in Germany have unveiled the car of the now-not-so-distant-future -- a car which can drive itself. The “astonishing prototype”, called the VW Golf GTi ‘53 was developed initially to help Volkswagen engineers test their vehicles. It was so successful, that many of the elements which make up its engine will reportedly be making their way into showroom cars within just a few years. A Volkswagen spokesman is quoted as saying, ‘It really is a self-driving Golf. It steers, brakes and accelerates. And it races through handling courses independently. It can accomplish this at full performance and at the limits of its capabilities...We called it ‘53’ because it is reminiscent of the cinematic Volkswagen bug “Herbie,” which made history as the first self-driving Volkswagen. This time we've done it for real.’ more...

IDF Raises Alert On Syrian Border (July 5, 2006) - The IDF has raised the level of alert along the northern border with Syria out of fear that President Bashar Assad would launch a strike against Israel in response to a recent IAF buzz of his palace. Syrian military forces, IDF officers confirmed Tuesday, have also gone on high alert, and the assumption in the IDF is that Assad would order a harsh military response if Israel decided to take additional steps against Damascus in relation to the kidnapping of Cpl. Gilad Shalit in the Gaza Strip. The type of response is unknown at this stage, but officers said it could be a missile strike on IDF installations or communities in the North. Another possibility, military sources said, is that Syria would use its proxy - the Hizbullah in Lebanon - to launch an attack against Israel in its place. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Tuesday issued a veiled threat against Syria, vowing to strike “those who sponsor” the terrorists in the Gaza Strip who abducted Shalit. Speaking at a business conference in Beersheba, Olmert said he had ordered the IDF to push forward with efforts “to strike terrorists and those who sent them and those who sponsor them,” an apparent reference to Syria. “None of them will be immune.” more...

Hamas rocket attack ‘act of war’ (July 5, 2006) - A Hamas rocket fired yesterday at a high school in a southern Israeli town is viewed by top military echelon here as an “act of war” that will be met with an escalated operation in the Gaza Strip, a senior defense official told WorldNetDaily today. The rocket was the first ever to land in central Ashkelon, a town of 120,000 residents that is home to Israel’s main electric supply station and critical gas and oil pipelines. The rocket, an updated version of the Palestinian Qassam missile, was launched by militants only a fifth of a mile from Israeli ground troop concentrations stationed in Gaza. Critics of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s evacuation last summer of the Gaza Strip had warned the retreat eventually would place Ashkelon under Palestinian rocket fire. Sharon then had stated rockets fired at the strategic town would result in an “unprecedented Israeli military response.” Terrorist leaders in Gaza told WND today their groups have the ability to regularly bombard Ashkelon. They warned longer-range Qassam missiles will be fired at Israeli towns near Gaza in the near future. The statements follow a WorldNetDaily exclusive interview in which Abu Abdullah, a leader of Hamas’ so-called military wing, stated his group is developing electronically guided missiles. The Qassam rocket yesterday hit Ashkelon’s Ronson High School at about 7 p.m. Jerusalem time, causing damage but no casualties even though many parents and children were in the vicinity during the attack to register for the coming school year. more...

Mary can bring Christianity and Islam together says Muslim writer (July 3, 2006) - Mary can bring religions together says Muslim writer. An Egyptian Muslim and deputy director of a prominent Italian newspaper has suggested that Mary could be the figure to bring Christians and Muslims together. Mr Magdi Allam of Il Corriere della Sera has launched an appeal in the pages of the national daily newspaper to Muslims in Italy to visit Marian shrines. The journalist said that he is convinced that the Virgin Mary is a meeting point between Christians and Muslims. “Mary is a figure present in the Koran, which dedicates an entire chapter to her and mentions her some thirty times. In Muslim countries there are Marian shrines that are the object of veneration and pilgrimage by Christian and Muslim faithful,” he said. “Therefore, I believe that if this happens in Muslim countries, why can’t it happen in a Christian country, especially in this historical phase in which we need to define symbols, values and figures that unite religions, spiritualities and cultures?” he asked. more...

Scientists Develop Tool to Re-grow Teeth (June 30, 2006) - “Right now, we plan to use it to fix fractured or diseased teeth, as well as asymmetric jawbones, but it may also help hockey players or children who had their tooth knocked out.” Canadian scientists at the University of Alberta in Edmonton filed patents in June in the United States for a smaller-than-pea sized tool that can supposedly re-grow teeth and bones. Said to be the first device to do so, it works by using low-intensity pulsed ultrasound technology to gently massage gums, stimulating tooth growth from the roots. “Right now, we plan to use it to fix fractured or diseased teeth, as well as asymmetric jawbones, but it may also help hockey players or children who had their tooth knocked out,” said Jie Chen, an engineering professor and nano-circuit design expert, adding that it can “also stimulate jawbone growth to fix a person’s crooked smile and may eventually allow people to grow taller by stimulating bone growth.” According to the AFP report, the device is expected to be commercialized within two years. more...

Preparing The Highway For The Kings Of The East (June 14, 2006) - More pieces of the ambitious 141,204-kilometer Asian Highway network slotted into place this month as Vietnam completed its section linking Vietnam, Laos, Thailand and Myanmar. Do Ngoc Dung, vice director general of the My Thuan Project Management Unit (PMU), announced completion of the work. The US$144.77 million construction bill was partly financed by the Asian Development Bank. The $44 billion Asian Highway network weaves through 32 countries, connects Asia with Europe, and promises to boost regional economies by facilitating trade and tourism through its linkage of Asian seaports, airports and major tourist destinations. It also fleshes out dreams of a Pan-Asian community with a common socio-political-economic identity analogous to the European Union. more...


Geologists Predict The Worst (July 4, 2006) - So the warnings of harsher heat waves, stronger hurricanes and rising seas fail to impress. How about volcanic eruptions in the Arctic, or a tsunami off the coast of Newfoundland? The latest scientific discipline to enter the fray over global warming is geology. And the forecasts from some quarters are dramatic -- not only will the earth shake, it will spit fire. A number of geologists say glacial melting due to climate change will unleash pent-up pressures in the Earth’s crust, causing extreme geological events such as earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. A cubic metre of ice weighs nearly a tonne and some glaciers are more than a kilometre thick. When the weight is removed through melting, the suppressed strains and stresses of the underlying rock come to life. University of Alberta geologist Patrick Wu compares the effect to that of a thumb pressed on a soccer ball -- when the pressure of the thumb is removed, the ball springs back to its original shape. Because the earth is so viscous the rebound happens slowly, and the quakes that occasionally shake Eastern Canada are attributed to ongoing rebound from the last ice age more than 10,000 years ago. more...

How Volcanic Activity Influences Climate (July 3, 2006) - A great deal of recent attention has been placed on the impact of human activities on climate change. However, very little attention has been placed on natural causes of climatic variations. In reality, there are many natural influences on climate change, with most (variations in solar output comes immediately to mind) dwarfing the contribution by humans. One natural influence that garners considerable attention is volcanic activity. The surface of the earth is comprised of about twenty major crustal plates, and many minor ones. These crustal plates move very slowly relative to one another. The rate of movement is about the same rate at which your fingernails are growing. While this seems inconsequential, over very long periods of time, the rate of movement changes the face of earth. For instance, there was no Atlantic Ocean only 200 million years ago (the blink of an eye in earth time). One of the consequences of crustal motion is volcanic activity. Volcanic processes have always been important to the atmosphere. The primordial atmospheric composition resulted from the out-gassing of molten rock as the earth cooled and the molten material hardened. This led to an atmosphere rich in the rather inert gas nitrogen, and CO2. Over time, the composition of the atmosphere changed, primarily though the proliferation of plant life extracting CO2 and respirating oxygen. more...

PA Has Declared War on Israel (July 7, 2006) - The Hamas Authority minister, Said Siyam, ordered his security forces last night to fight back against the Israeli invasion. Moshe Negbi, who is generally known for his extreme left-wing views, said that this may be considered as a declaration of war against Israel. Speaking on Israel Radio this afternoon, Negbi agreed that PA Chairman Abu Mazen (Fatah), and even Hamas prime minister Abu Haniyeh, had distanced themselves from the order, “but this is not enough. They must fully rescind the order in order for it to be nullified.” The interior ministry spokesman, Abu Hilal, announced last night that PA policemen and security forces had been ordered to open fire against IDF soldiers in Gaza. This was the first time PA officials had openly ordered official PA forces to shoot at IDF soldiers. At the very least, Negbi said, the declaration - which was later denied by the PA - can be viewed as having nullified the Oslo Agreements of 1993. more... | Israel | Islam |


U.N. Council Rebukes Israeli Operation (July 7, 2006) - The U.N. Human Rights Council on Thursday deplored Israel’s military operations in the West Bank and Gaza Strip as breaching international humanitarian law and voted to send a fact-finding mission to the region. By a vote of 29-11 with five abstentions, the council approved the resolution proposed by the 57-member Organization of the Islamic Conference after it was amended to suggest the Palestinians also had a responsibility to refrain from violence against civilians. “It is absolutely unacceptable” that the resolution only names Israel, Israeli Ambassador Itzhak Levanon told The Associated Press. “Obviously this resolution isn’t evenhanded. It’s not equitable and it’s not balanced. Everybody knows that. Even those that voted in favor, they did this for political reasons.” Switzerland had earlier proposed amendments saying armed Palestinian groups also should be called to account in the resolution. But the council accepted instead a more vague Islamic conference amendment that “urges all concerned parties to respect the rules of international humanitarian law, to refrain from violence against the civilian population and to treat under all circumstances all detained combatants and civilians in accordance with the Geneva Conventions.” more...

Israeli Aircraft Attack Interior Ministry In Gaza (July 5, 2006) - Israeli missiles tore through the Palestinian Interior Ministry building in Gaza on Wednesday as Israel kept up nightly air attacks to pressure militants to release an abducted soldier. The air strike, which wounded at least three people, was launched hours after militants from the governing Hamas movement fired a rocket into a major Israeli city for the first time, an attack that deepened a 10-day-old crisis. Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was meeting with top security officials and might order stronger military action in Gaza in response to the attack on the coastal city of Ashkelon, officials said. more...

Olmert Issues Veiled Threat Against Syria (July 4, 2006) - Palestinian militants hit an Israeli city with a rocket from Gaza for the first time on Tuesday, causing no casualties but drawing a pledge of harsh retaliation from Israel while it was already in the midst of a military offensive. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert called the rocket fire on the coastal city of Ashkelon a “major escalation,” coming just hours after a deadline set by the militants holding an Israeli soldier passed with Israel rejecting demands to release about 1,500 Palestinian prisoners. The militants said they would not harm 19-year-old Cpl. Gilad Shalit — if he is still alive. But they warned they would provide no further information about him, leaving his condition unclear. Early Wednesday, Israeli aircraft struck the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza for the second time in a week, the military said. Witnesses said missiles hit the main structure again and damaged a building next to the ministry which has been used since the first attack. Rescue workers said two people were wounded. more...

Israel Warns Of “Long War” (July 4, 2006) - Israel warned the governing Palestinian faction Hamas that the “sky will fall on them” if they harm a captured soldier after a deadline passed on Tuesday for the Jewish state to accept a prisoner exchange. While Israeli tanks and infantry massed along the Gaza Strip’s northern border for a threatened ground incursion, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said the campaign to free Corporal Gilad Shalit could turn into “a long war.” Three Palestinian factions, among them the Hamas armed wing, pulled out of negotiations with Egyptian mediators trying to end the standoff over Shalit, a Hamas political leader said. more...

Iran’s President Warns Israel on Continuing Attacks in Gaza (July 7, 2006) - Iran’s hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned on Friday that continued Israeli strikes against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip could lead to an “explosion” in the Islamic world that would target Israel and its supporters in the West. Again, Ahmadinejad questioned Israel’s right to exist. “This is a fake regime ... it won’t be able to survive. I think the only way (forward) is that those who created it (the West) take it away themselves,” the president told a rally in Tehran in support of Palestinians. Twenty-four Palestinians and one Israeli soldier have been killed in fighting since the Israeli army began invading northern Gaza on Thursday.

Israelis Resume Gaza Air Strikes - Tightens its Grip on Gaza (July 7, 2006) - Israel has consolidated its hold on the northern Gaza Strip, with air strikes in which at least three Palestinian militants have been killed. It followed the worst day of violence since Israeli forces entered Gaza over a soldier’s capture. Twenty-two Palestinians and an Israeli died. Israel’s operations are the biggest since it withdrew from Gaza last year. Meanwhile an Israeli minister suggested that if the soldier was released some Palestinian prisoners could go free. A spokesman quoted Public Security Minister Avi Dichter as saying that Israel “knows how to carry out a release of prisoners as a goodwill gesture”. Until now Israel has said it will not negotiate a prisoner swap, originally suggested by Islamic militants Hamas as a solution to the crisis. Earlier Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniya called for international intervention to stop the Israeli offensive. Mr Haniya, who belongs to Hamas, called it a “crime against humanity”. He said the Israeli push was “a desperate effort to undermine the Palestinian government under the pretext of a search for the missing soldier”. more...

Inside Iran: Signs of the Apocalypse (July 7, 2006) - Whether it is his belief that Israel should be wiped off the map, denials of the Holocaust, obsession with going nuclear, or support for radical Islamic terrorist groups, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a man on a divine mission. To understand him and that mission, you have to travel to a small dusty village called Jamkaran that is tucked into a corner of Iran’s holy city of Qom. On a recent Tuesday afternoon, CBN News made that journey, heading south from Iran’s capital of Tehran. Some 95 miles and a couple of wrong turns later, we arrived at the Jamkaran mosque on the outskirts of Qom. Behind the Jamkaran mosque, there is a well. And according to many Shiite Muslims, out of this well will one day emerge their version of an Islamic savior. They call him the Mahdi, or the 12th Imam. Ron Cantrell has written a book about him. “The Mahdi is a personage that is expected to come on the scene, by Islam, as a messiah figure. He is slotted to come at the end of time, according to their writings -- very much like how we think of the return of Jesus,” said Cantrell. Cantrell said the Mahdi, a descendent of the Prophet Mohammed, vanished in the middle of the 9th century. No one knows what he really looks like. “The 12th Imam disappeared around the age of 9,” said Cantrell, “with a promise that he would return and bring Islam to its total fruition, as the world's last standing religion.” Enter Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Since becoming the president of Iran in August 2005, Ahmadinejad has emerged as the Mahdi’s most influential follower. “He has stated that his mandate is to pave the way for the coming of this Islamic messiah,” Cantrell explained. In almost all his speeches, the president begs Allah to hasten the return of the Mahdi. And apparently, Ahmadinejad has also drawn up plans for the road that the Mahdi will take when he returns. Cantrell said, “...that will actually serve as the red carpet rolled out in Iran for the Mahdi to appear.” And if all this wasn’t mystical enough, there is also the belief that when the Mahdi comes back, he will be accompanied by Jesus Christ, who is referred to as the prophet Isa. “The Mahdi will take Jesus to Mecca,” Cantrell explained. “They will circumambulate the Kabah together. The Mahdi will teach Jesus to pray, at which time Jesus will then replace the Gospel with the Koran, and then all of us -- as Christians -- wherever you are on the face of the Earth, will convert to Islam because Islam will be deemed the one lasting pure religion.” more...

N. Korea Says Japanese Sanctions Will Bring ‘Disastrous’ Response (July 7, 2006) - North Korea is demanding Japan to drop sanctions that Tokyo imposed after Pyongyang launched a series of missiles this week. South Korea has responded to the missile tests by postponing inter-Korean military talks and withholding food aid - but says senior level talks on economic cooperation scheduled for next week will move ahead as planned. Song Il Ho represents North Korea in discussing normalization of diplomatic relations with Japan, but his words to Japanese journalists in Pyongyang Friday were anything but diplomatic. He warned Japan to withdraw penalties against his country, imposed after North Korea’s launch of missiles earlier this week, or face serious consequences. Song says if there are sanctions, there will be a disastrous result, and Japan will be responsible. Following the outcry over its missile tests, North Korea warned the world that it would take “stronger physical actions” against any nation that dared to “take issue with the exercises” and put pressure on Pyongyang. But Japan quickly imposed restrictions on North Koreans traveling to Japan, and barred a North Korean ferry for six months from making port calls in Japan. Japanese leaders say stronger sanctions may be on the way. Japan’s chief cabinet secretary, Shinzo Abe, replied by saying Song’s comments were “extremely regrettable,” and that Japan felt “resentment.” South Korean officials, meanwhile, said Friday they had declined for now Pyongyang’s proposal for working-level military talks with the North. Seoul says the timing is not appropriate following the missile tests, which included a long-range ballistic missile potentially capable of reaching the United States. more...


Russia’s Signal to Stations Is Clear: Cut U.S. Radio (July 7, 2006) - Russian regulators have forced more than 60 radio stations to stop broadcasting news reports produced by Voice of America and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, according to radio managers and Russian officials. The regulators cited license violations and unauthorized changes in programming format. But senior executives at the U.S.-government-funded broadcast services and at the stations blame the Kremlin for the crackdown, which has knocked the reports off stations from St. Petersburg in western Russia to Vladivostok in the Far East. “We focus primarily on domestic developments, and those are exactly the things the Kremlin has problems with,” said Jeffrey N. Trimble, acting president of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty -- commonly known as Radio Liberty. “This really hurts our ability to reach today’s decision-makers.” The two services’ straight-up reporting, often by journalists on the ground in Russian communities, has at times challenged the political establishment here. In a country where the news media increasingly avoid controversial subjects, millions of Russians had made the broadcasts a listening staple. more...

Expect this kind of thing to be the norm in the future when any dissenting voices are silenced. This provides more and better control from the top. Those who do dark deeds in dark rooms do not like the exposing power of light to show their deeds because they know it is wrong. Given Russia prophesied involvement in future conflict, I would guess this is exactly that, limiting information so as to more easily control their population. In the coming one-world government, I’m sure the media will be controlled by the top.

Army Source: Hamas’ Gloves Are Off (July 7, 2006) - Political echelon promises extremely harsh response to Qassam fired at Ashekelon Tuesday, but military sources admit that complexity of situation, fact that Palestinians hold kidnapped soldier do not leave ‘much room for maneuvers’; comprehensive ground operation waiting for cabinet’s approval. The political-security cabinet is expected to meet Wednesday morning to discuss the new situation which has unfolded since Tuesday, when a Qassam rocket for the first time crossed the red line and landed in the center of Ashkelon. Diplomatic sources in Jerusalem told Ynet that very harsh response is expected following the incident. Defense Minister Air Peretz ordered the Israel Defense Forces to increase the pace and intensity of military operations following Operation Summer Rain in Gaza, and said that the operation had two goals: To return kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit and the removal of the Qassam threat. more...

SETI Makes ‘Alien’ Contact? (July 7, 2006) - According to Dr. Steven Greer, yes, SETI has received multiple extraterrestrial signals. This news he says, is confirmed by senior employees within the SETI program. This is what Greer had to say at a recent Exopolitics Conference:
“We have confirmation - and I’m not going to give the name yet because we are trying to coax this guy out of the closet - but one of the senior people in the SETI project, which is the Carl Sagan Search for Extraterrestrial project, has confirmed to the Disclosure Project that they have received multiple extraterrestrial signals,” Greer said. “but that now they are getting external human, probably NRO or NSA jamming of those signals and they are getting very frustrated.” Greer continued, “The question is why hasn’t the SETI project, funded by Paul Alan the co-founder of Microsoft, come forward with this information? I’m a little uncomfortable even mentioning this, except for the fact that the public needs to know that this effort, which has received a great deal of mainstream media attention, has actually confirmed to us from two inside sources that they have received extraterrestrial signals and have confirmed them as being extraterrestrial and that they have become increasing in frequency and number.” Dr. Steven Greer is head of the the Disclosure Project, a non-profit organization with almost now 500 former military, intelligence, and government employees who go on record about their various experiences with aliens and alien technology. Since the National Press Conference of 2001, viewed by millions of people across the globe, Steven Greer has been referred to as the authority on the truth about extraterrestrials. For Greer to come out and make a statement of this magnitude, something is defiantly up. We will wait patiently to see whether or not these SETI insiders take the stage and become whistle blowers for this monumental secret.


The One World Order: By Conquest or Consent? Part 1 (June 1, 2006) - A world government is a world without borders, national sovereignty, constitutions, privacy, autonomy, individual liberties, religious freedoms, private property, the right to bear arms, the rights of marriage and family and a dramatic population reduction (two thirds). A world government establishes a slave/master environment wherein the state controls everything. Unfortunately, in the United States, the Establishment’s goal of a One World Order is reaching fruition through complacent consent and subversive conquest. America, a Constitutional Republic, is plunging into the satanic One World Order facilitated by the calculated placement of unscrupulous individuals deeply dedicated to the goals of the secret societies they belong to. America, formerly the home of the brave and the free, is currently the home of the people who merely think they are free. None are more enslaved and manipulated than those who mistakenly view themselves as free, therefore rendering them exceptionally vulnerable. more...

The One World Order: Secrets of Their Success Part 2 (June 17, 2006) - The function of the Rhodes-Milner Group, now referred to as The Rhodes Trust, is to identify and give scholarships to potential leaders to study at Oxford University. They are introduced to certain concepts/values to implement within their own countries. Names of just a few of these scholars/leaders appear on the following brief list: CFR denotes Council on Foreign Relations member, TC is Trilateral Commission, another One World Order proponent: [list of names in source article] The Bilderberg Group, another very secret society, was under the chairmanship of H. R. H. Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, who served in that position for twenty-two years beginning in 1954. Creation of the group was not Bernhard’s brainchild but that of politically connected Dr Joseph H. Retinger. After decades of covert conniving, it was most likely the first formally scheduled meeting of the banking elite and other prominent individuals. The group’s purpose: coordination of American and European foreign policy towards establishing a One World Order. more...

The One World Order: It’s Their Party Part 3 (June 25, 2006) - The super secretive Order of Skull and Bones (hereafter called The Order) is non partisan – it is not right or left, conservative or liberal, Republican or Democrat. Of the secret groups, The Order and the Bilderberg Group are the most secretive. The Order may, in fact, be the core of the others. Each group appears to have specific activities toward the development of the One World Order. “The activities of The Order are directed towards changing our society, changing the world, to bring about a One World Order. This will be a planned order with heavily restricted individual freedom, without Constitutional protection, without national boundaries or cultural distinction.” Therefore, The Order controls Republican Bonesmen and Democrat Bonesmen. The Order’s methodology is a strict adherence to Hegelian Dialectics. Apply those dialectics to the two political parties. Essentially, political parties are artificial groupings designed to create division. A contrived choice between two bad options, without recognizing alternative better options, creates the perception of freedom. Supposedly opposing ideologies generates deliberate distraction and polarizations (as in divide and conquer). The very public, distracting, lengthy, increasingly hostile battle between the Republicans, posing as thesis, and the Democrats posing as antithesis is nothing but orchestrated opposition. Elections, staged for the masses, are completely irrelevant political soap operas. Domestic and foreign policies remain precisely the same despite which puppet president is in office. more...
