| The Pyrenean Quest - Part II
: The Sacrifice
| A True Story
Deep in the darkest forest of the French Pyrenees, a shaman was
acting (with the help of dark STS forces?) in order to take his
revenge against the Space Brother who'd become the center of all
the attention of the Human Tribe.
Step by step, day after day, the Space Brother revealed his Human
Nature, thanks to heavy use of delicate French Wines:
Unfortunately, in this way his vividness dimmed slowly. The Bright
Rays emanating from his body and noble face were no longer a wonderful
display of light.
But nobody realized what was going on in the tribe. In only a couple
of days, all the humans became addicted to the charismatic leader
from Outer Space.
Even H. the Wise, the Glove-Eater, became addicted to the Space
Brother Cult. As can be seen in this picture, some Soft Light Rays
started to glow out of his famous Gloves. But under this deceptively
luminous appearance, something evil was festering!
One evening, they met an unfortunate girl who was foolishly snapping
photos in the mountains. The Space Brother immediately ordered the
hypnotised humans to sacrifice her as a sign of their devotion to
him! Here are a few dramatic pictures of this Horrible Terror Act:
See how even the Wise can become distorted by the power of the
But exactly at that moment a powerful bright light suddenly appeared
over the sacrifice scene:
And all the members of the Tribe were thrown into the far reaches
of the atmosphere!
Even Space Brother himself experienced a giant smack:
Was the shaman behind it??
What happened next?!
Tune in next week... if there is a "next week"...
FALLUJAH, Iraq - Iraq says the
battle to retake the rebel bastion of Fallujah was over, with more
than 1,000 insurgents killed, but US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld
says the reports are premature, and US commanders say the six-day
assault operation was still going on.
Iraq's most wanted man, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, is meanwhile belived
to have fled the city.
"Operation Fajr (Dawn) has been achieved and only the malignant
pockets remain that we are dealing with through a clean-up operation,"
Qassem Daoud, secretary of state for national security, told a Baghdad
He said that Zarqawi, whose supporters had made
Fallujah their base, and a militant cleric who was one of his top
aides had slipped through their fingers.
"Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and Abdullah Junabi have fled,"
Daoud said, "leaving their supporters to taste death."
Asked about the situation in the south of the city, where violent
clashes had erupted Saturday afternoon, Daoud said: "The mission
is accomplished and there only remains these few pockets, which
are being cleaned up."
A rebel spokesman told Arab television station Al-Jazeera Saturday
that US forces were in an impasse in Fallujah, and denied the offensive
"The announcement of the end of the
military offensive is proof that American forces are in an impasse
... the American criminals and the Iraqi apostates have suffered
more than 150 killed and more than 270 wounded," said
Abu Saad al-Dlimi, spokesman of the Shura (consultative) Council
of the Muhajedeen in Fallujah, speaking by telephone to the Qatar-based
Rumsfeld, on a visit to Panama, told reporters the attackers had
wrested most of Fallujah from insurgent control, although the battle
was not over.
The Iraqi and US troops were "operating in one way or another
in much if not all of the city at the present time," he said.
"Needless to say there still will be pockets of resistance
and areas that will be difficult, so I don't mean to suggest that
it is concluded. It's not, to be sure. [...]
KIRKUK, Iraq - Attackers set off separate
explosions at oil and gas pipelines in northern Iraq, an official
of the Northern Oil Co. said Saturday.
The gas pipeline, running from a gas field in the Kirkuk area
to the Dibis power station, was hit Saturday about 30 kilometers
(18 miles) northwest of Kirkuk, said the official, speaking on
condition of anonymity.
The blast set off a fire that was later extinguished but the
pipeline won't be repaired for three days, the official said.
Kirkuk is located 290 kilometers (180 miles) north of Baghdad.
An earlier explosion hit an oil pipeline close to Beiji, 100
kilometers (60 miles) southwest of Kirkuk, the official said.
The late Friday blast set off a fire that was still raging Saturday.
EINDHOVEN, NETHERLANDS - The Muslim woman
adjusted her head scarf and gazed wearily on Friday at her daughters'
elementary school, one of many Islamic sites attacked since a
Muslim radical allegedly killed a Dutch filmmaker who criticized
An explosion earlier in the week not only shattered windows
and doors, but it also damaged the Muslim community's faith in
the tolerance of their neighbors.
One mother said the attack made her afraid.
"I always thought the Netherlands was the safest place in the
whole world, but if you see all that's happening, I don't know
anymore," said the woman, who didn't want to be quoted by name
for fear of reprisals. "I didn't know what to tell my daughter.
She asked me: 'Mommy, why us? All we did was go to school.' "
In Amsterdam, meanwhile, Queen Beatrix made her first public
appearance since the slaying of Theo van Gogh and sought to assuage
Muslims' anxieties by reaching out to Islamic youths.
One woman who met the monarch, 26-year-old Naziha Daoudi, said
she had not felt safe on the streets since the Nov. 2 killing.
"We have to watch a lot of Dutch people watching
us like we're criminals," said Daoudi, who works at the Argan
Moroccan youth center. "The Dutch community doesn't know much
about Islam. They think (Muslims) are all the same."
The arrest of Muslim militant Mohammed Bouyeri, 26, as the main
suspect in the killing has been followed by what seems to be a
cycle of retaliation between Christian and Muslim extremists.
A half-dozen arson attacks on Muslim buildings were answered
by fire bombings that caused minor damage at churches in Rotterdam,
Utrecht and Amersfoort.
After Monday's pre-dawn attack on the Islamic school in this
sprawling southern industrial city of 200,000 people, another
Muslim school was gutted by fire in the town of Uden.
On Wednesday, Dutch youths brawled with Turks and Moroccans
in the first direct ethnic confrontation since Van Gogh's slaying.
For Muslims, the conservative government's
reaction to the slaying has been almost as disturbing as the violence.
On Friday, Parliament asked the government to draft legislation
that would compel Dutch mosques to employ only imams who have
studied Islam in the Netherlands. Legislators
are also considering laws that would enable the closure of mosques
that spread non-Dutch values.
Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende promised "a hard-line approach
to those who want to wreck" Dutch society. He also pledged more
money for efforts to combat terrorist groups, stricter monitoring
of foreign funding for Holland's roughly 500 mosques, and new
government powers to revoke Dutch nationality for terrorism suspects
with dual citizenship.
As legislators met in The Hague, hundreds of neighbors, students
and parents of children who attend Eindhoven's damaged Tarieq
Ibnu Zyad Islamic school staged a protest against anti-Muslim
LOUISVILLE, Ky. Presbyterian Churches in
the U-S have been put on high alert.
This after a letter received at the church's Louisville, Kentucky,
headquarters threatened arson attacks because of the church's
policies toward the Middle East.
A church spokesman says the letter threatened
to set churches on fire while people were inside in retaliation
for "anti-Israel and anti-Jewish attitudes."
The spokesman says the letter had no return address, but was
postmarked Queens, New York.
The church's General Assembly decided in June to begin the process
of selective divestment from corporations supporting the Israeli
occupation of Gaza and the West Bank.
An F-B-I spokesman says the agency is investigating
The Pentagon has reportedly laid the first
connections for a secure, wireless information network that proponents
say will fundamentally transform warfare.
The New York Times reports that estimates suggest the
Global Information Grid will cost $US200 billion in the next decade
alone but take two decades to complete.
The new network would fuse US military and intelligence services
into a unified system and make volumes of information instantly
available to soldiers on the battlefield, the Times said.
Robert Stevens, chief executive of top US military contractor
Lockheed Martin Corporation, says every
member of the military would have "a God's-eye view" of the battlefield.
Proponents say it will become the most lethal weapon in the
US arsenal and change the military and warfare in the way the
Internet has changed business and culture.
The Times says Peter Teets, Under Secretary of the US Air Force,
told Congress that the system would allow "marines in a Humvee,
in a faraway land, in the middle of a rainstorm, to open up their
laptops, request imagery" from a spy satellite, and "get it downloaded
But the effort faces staggering technological
Vint Cerf, one of the inventors of the Internet, is a consultant
to the Pentagon on the project. "I want to make sure what we realise
is vision and not hallucination," he told the Times.
"This is sort of like Star Wars, where
the policy was, 'Let's go out and build this system', and technology
lagged far behind," he said.
"There's nothing wrong with having ambitious
goals. You just need to temper them with physics and reality."
The military has twice before tried to build information networks
for the military.
The 1960s-era Worldwide Military Command and Control System
often failed in crises. A $US25 billion successor completed in
2003 is already outdated.
Four decades ago, Pentagon scientists invented the systems that
became the Internet. However, the global network leapt forward
once it emerged in the world of commerce a decade ago.
The war net is "an attempt to catch up", Mr Cerf said.
Military contractors and information-technology innovators formed
a consortium to develop the war net on September 28, the Times
The group includes Boeing, Cisco Systems, General Dynamics,
Hewlett-Packard, Honeywell, IBM, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, Northrop
Grumman, Oracle, Raytheon, and Sun Microsystems.
WASHINGTON--The military installed its sixth
and final interceptor of the year at Fort Greely on Thursday,
but the ground-based, mid-course missile defense system has yet
to be declared in working form.
The 55-foot interceptors at Fort Greely, 100 miles southeast
of Fairbanks, are designed to shoot down a warhead launched by
an enemy missile from overseas.
The Bush administration had pushed to start up the system this
fall, a goal that some critics saw as political. The 2004 general
election went by, though, without the sixth interceptor in place
and with no declaration of "initial defensive capability," as
the military calls start-up. [...]
Ten more interceptors will go into silos
at the fort next year. Those silos have been excavated
and are being prepared now, Maxon said.
Long-term budget documents from the MDA indicate another 10
will go to Fort Greely in following years. The site has enough
room for 40.
In the news release announcing the sixth interceptor, the MDA
included its standard description and disclaimer: "Although the
system will initially have a limited capability when it becomes
operational later this year, it will mark the first time the United
States has a capability to defend the entire country against a
limited long-range ballistic missile attack."
Critics have scoffed at that assertion,
saying the system has not been tested to the degree necessary
to make such a claim. Five of eight
intercept attempts have connected with dummy missiles, but the
critics say those were not conducted under real-world conditions.
An X-band radar destined for Adak in Alaska's Aleutian Islands
is not done yet, nor is a new system of satellites used for detection
of enemy launches.
Military leaders insist that having something is better than
nothing. Improving the system while using it is the most prudent
policy, they say.
MIAMI (AP) - Police have acknowledged using
a stun gun to immobilize a 12-year-old
girl just weeks after an officer jolted a six-year-old
with 50,000 volts.
Police director Bobby Parker defended the decision to use a
Taser stun gun on the six-year-old boy last month because he was
threatening to injure himself with a shard of glass. But Parker
said Friday he could not defend the decision to shock the fleeing
girl, who was skipping school and apparently drunk.
According to the incident report, officer William Nelson responded
to a complaint that children were swimming in a pool, drinking
alcohol and smoking cigars on the morning of Nov. 5.
Nelson said he noticed the girl was intoxicated and was walking
her to his car to take her back to school when she ran away through
a parking lot.
Nelson, 38, said he chased her and yelled several times for
her to stop before firing the Taser when she began to run into
traffic. The electric probes hit the girl
in the neck and lower back, immobilizing her.
Nelson said he fired "for my safety along with (the girl's)
safety." Paramedics treated the girl, who went home with her mother.
Parker said department policy permits officers to use the Taser
to apprehend someone, but he said he expected
his officers to use better judgment, especially when police had
no plans to arrest the girl.
The first incident had already exposed the department to more
criticism for its use of Tasers, which it has begun distributing
in greater numbers to officers. [...]
It's the Roman Empire revived in the Big Apple, if some new restaurants
are any indication. The latest trend is eateries that offer beds
instead of tables and chairs, giving New York residents the chance
to do as the Romans did and indulge in a meal out while reclining.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Californians
will soon see advertisements urging them to help give Gov. Arnold
Schwarzenegger and other foreign-born citizens the chance to run
The cable television ads, set to being running Monday, are from
a Silicon Valley-based group that wants to amend the U.S. Constitution,
which limits the presidency to people born in the United States.
Schwarzenegger was born in Austria but became a U.S. citizen in

Four proposed amendments are circulating in Congress, but none

and ratification by 38 states.
GAUHATI, India (AP) - Wild elephant herds
have been terrorizing India's remote northeast, killing people,
flattening houses and even guzzling local rice beer supplies,
prompting villagers to retaliate against the pachyderms with firecrackers,
drums and bonfires.
With an estimated 5,000 elephants, Assam state has the largest
concentration of wild Asiatic elephants in India, said M.C. Malakar,
Assam's chief wildlife warden.
The big herds, faced with shrinking forest cover and human encroachment
of their corridors, venture into human settlements looking for
food and attack those who try to stop them.
The wild elephants have stampeded across the region, stomping
down houses and feasting on standing crops, Pradyut Bordoloi,
Assam state's forest minister, said Saturday.
Rice beer is an attraction. Workers in tea plantations in Assam
make rice beer at home and store it in drums.
"There are many instances of wild elephants guzzling the brew
and returning for more," Bordoloi said.
Wild elephants have killed at least 22 people so far this year
in the state, wildlife authorities say. A rapidly shrinking habitat
is the main reason for elephants killing more than 600 people
in the past 15 years, the authorities say. [...]

1985: Volcano kills thousands in Colombia
About 20,000 people are feared dead after

volcano, was virtually destroyed - buried by mud and rubble swept

ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - A woman and her boyfriend
are accused of plotting to sacrifice the woman's three children
on a church altar.
Nicole Mancini, 29, and John Thurber, 35, were arrested at St.
Mary's Church on Wednesday after workers said they heard the woman
say she wanted to sacrifice the boys.
"We could tell this woman was not right," said church secretary
Donna Landolfi. "She said, 'Let's go make the sacrifice.' "
Mancini and Thurber were in jail Saturday on more than $25,000
bail. They were arraigned Friday on three counts each of misdemeanour
child endangerment. Thurber was also charged with marijuana possession.
The children, aged 9, 7 and 2, were not harmed and were placed
in state custody. Police said Thurber is the father of the youngest
Police said Mancini told them that Jesus sacrificed Himself for
her, so she was going to sacrifice the boys to free her soul.
WASILLA (AP) -- A principal at a Christian
school who was fired for being voluntarily whipped in front of
two students does not regret his decision.
"I'm not bitter," Steve Unfreid said Friday of his dismissal
as principal of Matanuska Christian School in Palmer.
Unfreid said his choice of discipline
was inspired by the actions of Jesus. He
asked teacher Joe Brost to whip him in front of two male students
in the school's basement last month after the boys were caught
kissing girls in the locker room for the second time in a week.
When the two seniors, 17 and 18, got caught kissing the girls
in front of younger students, Unfreid said he contemplated about
what discipline to hand out. He woke at 3 a.m. and prayed how
to avoid expelling them.
He said that was when he remembered years
ago he had cured his son of chronic lying by telling his son to
hit him with a wooden ladle instead of spanking the youngster.
Later at school, Unfreid walked the boys down to a basement
room with Brost. He told them, " 'Guys, this has gotta stop,'
" he said. " 'I've let the atmosphere get too lax. I share in
this discipline. This is a one-time deal.' "
Then the principal took off his belt, gave it to Brost, and
instructed the teacher to "discipline me like you would discipline
your own son," he recalled.
He told the teacher to stop only when the students acknowledged
their mistake. The whole thing, starting with the trip downstairs,
lasted 5 to 10 minutes, he said.
The next day, Unfreid mentioned the lesson in Bible class. A
student in class complained, talked to school officials, and word
of the incident spread. Unfreid was put on administrative leave
The school's board of directors unanimously decided in a closed
door session to fire Unfreid. Brost resigned.
Unfreid violated school policy by not
notifying parents before going ahead with discipline, particularly
with "anything that unusual," school board president and
acting administrator Scott Richardson said Friday.
Unfreid said in an interview Friday at his Wasilla home that
he should have called the boys' parents first, but expressed no
regret for his behavior.
Since coming to the school as a teacher several years ago, Unfreid
said he pushed for the school to admit a married student, laid
on hands in an effort to heal a girl basketball player's injured
ankle, and has taken troubled students into his family's
"The vision I had is the love of God
can change everything," Unfreid
Parent Mitch Rausa said he was trying to remain neutral.
"Being a believer, I know that the only one that can take on
the sins of anyone is Jesus," he said.
About 20 students have left the school of roughly 120 students
following the incident
WILLMAR, MINN. -- A small Willmar church
has been conned out of thousands of dollars for
the second time in a year.
Last winter, Rejoice Ministries hired
Dennis Bennett as pastor. Authorities say he turned out to be
a veteran con artist who allegedly swindled the church out of
$10,000. Prosecutors filed criminal charges.
In August, the church hired a new preacher.
In less than a month, the church claims, he took almost $3,500
with promises of paying it back. He didn't.
A broad stroke of fresh white paint across the Rejoice Ministries
sign now covers the name of the man: "Pastor James Poole."
"I feel like we are a clearinghouse for bad pastors," church
secretary Mary Steffens said. "A lot of
what this fella has done is similar to what Dennis Bennett has
According to the complaint Rejoice Ministries filed in Kandiyohi
County Conciliation Court, Poole owes them $3,344.34. But church
officials plan to drop the claim because they have no idea where
Rejoice Ministries hired Bennett, whose real name is believed
to be Jerry Andrews, after an Internet search for a pastor.
In a little more than a month, he had allegedly swindled
the church out of money for a car, a house and other items. Police
later discovered he'd been conning people nationwide over the
last three decades.
Cautiously, Rejoice Ministries began searching for a new minister.
They found Poole, again via the Internet.
Wary of what Bennett had done, the church asked Poole to come
up and preach.
"He did a good service," Steffens said. "I will give him credit
The church hired Poole, who moved to the area with his family.
Steffens said Poole quickly grew demanding but was much smoother
"Even with this fella, as cautious as
we were, he was so manipulative that he still got what he wanted,"
Poole persuaded the church to front him money for rent, a down
payment, a new bathtub and asked for help in paying for trips.
After some members objected to Poole's efforts to gain greater
control and shift Rejoice Ministries' money into a new church
he wanted to call Breath of Life International Ministries, Steffens
said Poole told her he was taking his church to nearby Raymond.
Poole tried to start a church at the Raymond Community Center.
He had one service there, according to his neighbor there, Jewel
Tomlinson. The next Saturday night, starting around 8:30 p.m.,
Tomlinson said, the Pooles moved out.
"They left a lot of their things," she said.
Steffens said the church later found
Poole had a criminal record and had served jail time for writing
bad checks and credit card theft.
Rejoice's congregation of 12 is now trying to decide whether
to look for a new pastor or shut down.
"I don't know where we are going to go from here," Steffens
said. "Each time it's cost us a lot of money."
(AP) -- A single-engine plane crashed and
burst into flames while approaching an airport Friday, killing

The Cessna 210 was approaching from the south when it crashed
about two miles west of the airport near Berea in central Kentucky,
