Ahmadinejad: Israel filthy bacteria

Jpost staff and michal lando
In yet another verbal attack against Israel, Iranian President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad called the Jewish state a “filthy bacteria” whose sole
purpose was to oppress the other nations of the region.
“The world powers established this filthy bacteria, the Zionist regime,
which is lashing out at the nations in the region like a wild beast,”
the Iranian president told supporters at a rally in southern Iran.
“[Israel] won support [from the other nations] which created it as a
scarecrow, so as to keep the people of this area under control,”
Ahmadinejad said.
Referring to the assassination of Hizbullah terror chief Imad
Mughniyeh, the Iranian leader said that Israel “uses terror as a threat
every day, and afterwards is happy and joyful.”
Meanwhile, the Israeli mission to the United Nations has written a
letter of complaint to the UN Security Council, protesting recent
remarks by two senior members of the Iranian regime threatening Israel.

Last week, the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported that
Commander-General Muhammad Ali Jafari of the Iranian Revolutionary
Guard Corps wrote in a letter to Hizbullah head Hassan Nasrallah that
he was convinced “that Hizbullah's might is increasing with every
passing day, and …

Israel and the US see nearly eye-to-eye on the threat of a nuclear
Iran, differing only on when Teheran will be able to build an atomic
bomb, a key American senator told The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

“There is now and always has been a slight difference of opinion about
the precise timing of the threat of [a nuclear] Iran, but in response
to the fundamental nature of Iran's desire to acquire nuclear weapons,
and its ongoing development of fuels for that purpose, there is no
difference of opinion in that regard,” said Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Arizona).
Recent intelligence assessments provided to the Knesset's Foreign
Affairs and Defense Committee suggested that Iran could have a nuclear
weapon by the end of 2009. US intelligence estimates, however, say it
will take the Islamic Republic at least one year longer.
Kyl is the Senate minority whip and a close ally of Sen. John McCain
(R-Arizona), the front-runner for the Republican presidential
Kyl, who led a …

Homosexual activity cause of earthquake, Shas MK says

'The Gemara mentions a number of causes of earthquakes, one of which is
homosexuality, which the Knesset legitimizes,' Benizri says regarding
last Friday's tremor
Amnon Meranda
The recent earthquake that was felt across Israel was the result of the
“homosexual activity practiced in the country”, Knesset Member Shlomo
Benizri said Wednesday.
During a special Knesset session on Israel's preparedness for the
possibility of another earthquake hitting the region, the Shas member
said “the Gemara refers to earthquakes as disasters, but you are
searching only for the practical solutions how to prevent and repair.  
“But I no of another way to prevent earthquakes; the Gemara mentions a
number of causes of earthquakes, one of which is homosexuality, which
the Knesset legitimizes,” Benizri said.  
An earthquake registering 5.3 on the Richter Scale was felt by
residents across Israel at 12:36 pm Friday. The trembling lasted for 19
seconds and shook structures in many major towns and cities.  
Reports of shaking were received from Nahariya in the north down to
Beersheba. Magen David Adom emergency services said there were no
reports of injuries, but several people suffered from shock.  
Last month fellow Shas member Nissim Ze'ev stirred controversy when …

Educators say evolution still 'theory'

Panel had asked state board to teach ideas as fact
A decision by the Florida Board of Education to qualify evolution as a
“theory” when the concept is taught in public schools has triggered a
gusher of outrage from those faithful to Darwinian philosophy.
“Creationism is NOT science and is for fools who believe in fairy
tales,” wrote boston85 on a Tampa Bay Online forum after the state
board simply voted to describe evolution as a “theory.” It wasn't even
considering allowing teaching alternative beliefs about the origins of
the universe, such as creationism or intelligent design.
Added Brian06, “What is the problem? Darwin's theory of evolution by
means of natural selection has stood the test of SCIENTIFIC studies and
investigations. Why are the people against the writings in Darwin's
book and have yet NEVER read it and yet they 'claim' to live their live
(sic) by bible (sic) which they have also NEVER read!”

Resisting Islamic Law

By Daniel Pipes
Westerners opposed to the application of the Islamic law (the Shari‘a)
watch with dismay as it goes from strength to strength in their
countries – harems increasingly accepted, a church leader endorsing
Islamic law, a judge referring to the Koran, clandestine Muslim courts
meting out justice. What can be done to stop the progress of this
medieval legal system so deeply at odds with modern life, one that
oppresses women and turns non-Muslims into second-class citizens?
A first step is for Westerners to mount a united front against the
Shari‘a. Facing near-unanimous hostility, Islamists back down. For one
example, note the retreat last week by the Council on American-Islamic
Relations (CAIR) in a dispute concerning guide dogs used by the blind.
Muslims traditionally consider dogs impure animals to be avoided,
creating an aversion that becomes problematic when Muslim store-owners
or taxi drivers deny service to blind Westerners relying on service
dogs. I have collected fifteen such cases on my weblog, at “Muslim Taxi
Drivers vs. Seeing-Eye Dogs”: five from the United States (New Orleans,
Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Brooksville, Fl.; Everett, Wash.); four from
Canada (Vancouver, twice in Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Alberta); three
from the United Kingdom (Cambridge, twice …

(author of DAY OF ISLAM)
America’s war on terror has come full circle.
By pledging his support of Kosovo’s declaration of independence from
Serbia, President George W. Bush has sanctioned the genocide of
thousands of Serbian Christians in the Balkans and the creation, thanks
to al Qaeda, of a radical Muslim state at the doorway to Europe.
 After announcing their independence from Serbia on February 16,
thousands of ethnic Albanians (Muslims) took to the streets waving
American flags and singing patriotic songs.
 While the national press provided glowing coverage of these
demonstrations as proof that the “Kosovars” were adamantly pro-America,
few media outlets took notice that the demonstrations were preceded by
the sacking of Christian churches and the burning of thousands of
Serbian books.
 But book-burning is the least of the sins of our new friend and ally.
The Kosovars have also sacked churches, raped nuns, and mass-murdered
approximately 4,000 Christian Serbs in and around the town of
Srebrenica and its adjoining towns and villages (Bratunac, Skelani,
Milici, et al) as well as the town of Gorazde.
 In a letter to Fatmir Sejdui, the president of the new “republic,”
Bush wrote: “On behalf of the …
