Archeologists claim new location for Sodom and Gomorrah in Jordan

An international excavation team of archeologists led by Dr. Steven
Collins, an expert on Biblical archeology from US Trinity Southwestern
University, have claimed finding new evidence proving that the Biblical
sites of Sodom and Gomorrah – two cities cited in Bible as “destroyed
by God for their sins”- were located in Jordan's Tall al-Hammam in
north of the Dead Sea, rather than attributed location in the south of
the Dead Sea.
One of the archeologists in the excavation team said, “One of the
interesting things about Tall al-Hammam is what we called a MB gap,
that is the period of time between the Middle Bronze Age and Iron Age,
because in normal locations like this, you have occupations one right
on top of the other, but here, something very unique, something very
significant took place in the Middle Bronze Age.
The city was destroyed by an event that was so dramatic that it scared
everybody away for seven hundred years. Here, in this square, there's
the perfect example. You have Iron Age foundations that are built right
into a Middle Bronze Age rampart.”
Many people located Sodom and Gomorrah towards the south of the Dead
Sea but the reason that …

MK Zeev: Gay 'plague' could destroy Israel

Posters reading 'in this house lives an MK who is trying to outlaw
citizens' right to march in Jerusalem,' hung on MKs Gabbay, Zeev's
homes. Zeev: Gays a plague that could destroy Israel
Aviram Zino
Members of Hadash party's “Red-Pink Patrol” hung placards overnight
Tuesday on the homes of Knesset members Eli Gabbay (National Union-NR)
and Nissim Zeev (Shas) in protest of a proposal banning gay pride
parades in Jerusalem.
“In this house lives an MK who is trying to outlaw the citizens' right
to march and protest on the streets of Jerusalem,” one of the posters
read. “This anti-democratic bill is targeting not only the homosexual,
lesbian, transgender and bisexual communities, but also human and civil
rights in general.  
The proposed amendment to Basic Law: Jerusalem, would enable the
Jerusalem Municipal Council to ban gay parades and rallies for
considerations of disturbance to public order, offending the public's
sensitivities or for religious considerations.  
Yaniv Rosner, a member of Hadash's “Red-Pink Forum,” said MKs Gabbay
and Zeev “are attempting to create a situation whereby an entire
community is denied its right to protest in Jerusalem.  
“There is no precedent to such legislation,” he said, “this is way …

No PA State Without Jerusalem

( Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said Monday
that the PA would not establish a state without Jerusalem as a capital
city.  Abbas has demanded that Israel give the PA all areas of
Jerusalem that fell under Jordanian control between 1948 and 1967,
including the Old City and the Temple Mount.
Abbas made his statements during a meeting of approximately 400 Arab
leaders in the Mukata compound in Ramallah.  The leaders met “to
promote the Arab nature of Jerusalem and to fight Israeli plotting.”
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Monday that discussions over the status
of Jerusalem would take place after negotiations on other “core
issues,” such as the borders of a PA state.  Shas party leaders say
they will leave the coalition when Israel and the PA begin negotiating
over Jerusalem.

Russia: We may use nukes if threatened

Russia's military chief of staff said Saturday that Moscow could use
nuclear weapons in preventive strikes in case of a major threat, the
latest aggressive remarks from increasingly assertive Russian
“We have no plans to attack anyone, but we consider it necessary for
all our partners in the world community to clearly understand … that
to defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Russia and its
allies, military forces will be used, including preventively, including
with the use of nuclear weapons,” Gen. Yuri Baluyevsky said.
The comments from the hawkish Baluyevsky did not appear to mark a
policy shift for Russia, whose leaders have stressed the need to
maintain a powerful nuclear deterrent and reserved the right to carry
out preventive strikes.
Moscow-based military analyst Alexander Golts said that when Russia
broke with Soviet-era policy in 2000 and declared it could use nuclear
weapons first against an aggressor, it reflected the decline of
Russia's conventional forces in the decade following the 1991 Soviet
collapse breakup.
“Baluyevsky's statement means that, as before, we cannot count on our
conventional forces to counter aggression,” Golts told Ekho Moskvy
radio. “It means that as before, the main factor in containing
aggression against Russia …

What Else is Behind the Veil In Washington DC?

Tribute or Testament or Torment?
Sue Bradley,
Once again, and interestingly enough, pop authors engage the Hollywood
establishment to produce fantasy and reality products for just about
conceivable appetite on planet earth with just enough seed to provoke
moderately activity and experimentation.
No audience, young or old, is spared overt subliminally induced
trespasses, and the “We’ve come a long way, Baby” liberation. As the
audience aged, the entertainment sector followed, delivering seemingly
innocuous themes for the romantics and increasingly bizarre sci-fi tech
drama for the “little boys” who now, are all grown up, still love their
toys of power and prowess – but – from the comfort of a theater or
vinyl recliner.
Designed as a tribute or testament to the American Culture, there is a
recurrent trend toward Lovecraft mysticism and Alistar Crowley’s magik
which is mingling with real life.
Mention these synchronicities to the general public and you‘ll most
likely find yourself on the receiving end of a tin beanie, but a
discussion with even casual followers of new age materials will likely
draw far more engaging and competent conversation. Does this
incongruity not trouble anyone?
Enter the good shepherds of …

Iran: Israel too weak to confront us

Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki says Jewish state's ballistic
missile capability won't help it in confrontations with Islamic
republic; meanwhile, Iranian-Egyptian rapprochement in the works
Dudi Cohen
“Israel is too weak to confront Iran. The leaders of this illegitimate
fake regime know well would happen in the region in response to an
attack (against us),” Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said
on Monday in response to a successful Israeli ballistic missile test.
In a press conference in Tehran, Mottaki said that “If Israel's nuclear
missile warheads could have helped, she would have won the (Second)
Lebanon War.”

Five-ton consignment of enriched uranium arrives at light-water Bushehr

According to the minister, “The interior structure of the Zionist
regime has been affected by the repercussions of its humiliating defeat
in the Lebanon confrontation – not with a classic army, but rather with
a popular resistance.”In response to the possibility that the UN
Security Council will impose additional sanctions on Iran following the
country' refusal to suspend its uranium enrichment program, Mattaki
said: “Despite the …
