Contacting the Guardian Over Shoddy Journalism

A week ago, the UK Guardian published an article entitled: US House calls for Iraq pullout by spring by James Sturcke, where he stated:

Scientist to Sue BBC for Public Deception over 9-11 documentary

A British scientist and member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice, John A. Blacker MSc IMI (Physical Systems), is planning to sue the BBC for mass public deception via their "9/11: The Conspiracy Files" programme, RINF Alternative News can reveal.

The programme which aired on 18 February, 2007, promised to offer a thorough examination of the events of 9/11 and answer many of the questions posed by the 9/11 Truth Movement.

However, the hour long programme failed to investigate the tough questions and ignored hard evidence that points towards a deeper conspiracy, while presenting an unfair and unbalanced view of 9/11 research.

Scientist and member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice, John A. Blacker, is taking action against this portrayal on the grounds of 'Total Public Deception´.

Senate Sleeps As The Middle East Burns

There have been some hilarious goings on in the U.S. over the past few days, and by "hilarious" what I really mean is very, very disturbing. Last night, the Republicrat and Democan members of Washington's permanent big top circus aka "the Senate", staged a "sleep in" in an attempt to convince someone, anyone, that they actually give a damn about the Iraqi people or that US troops should be withdrawn by April 2008.

Israel's Mossad involved in assassination of former Lebanese Minister Eli Hbeika

Admissions of the Israeli spy network members arrested in Lebanon in 2004 unveiled the Israeli Intelligence service Mossad involvement in assassinating former Lebanese Minister Eli Hbeika and three bodyguards in a car bomb explosion, the Lebanon News Agency reported yesterday.

Comment: Mossad is actually involved in many more assassinations and attacks attributed to Muslim groups than the headlines report.

France warns Israel over possible attempt by Mossad to kidnap Hizbullah members

France has recently warned Israel not to harm Hizbullah members participating in a convention of Lebanese groups being held near Paris these days.

The Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Seyassah reported Saturday that the French government told Israel an attempt to harm any of the Hizbullah delegates would hinder relations between the countries.

According to the report, the warning was issued after French intelligence received information saying Mossad was planning to attack Hizbullah and Amal (Lebanese Resistance Detachments) representatives at the conference.

Anti-smoking nonsense: Non-smoking candidates only for Malaysia's Islamic party

Malaysia's main Islamic opposition party will only field candidates for the upcoming general elections who do not smoke or are willing to kick the habit, its leader said.

The Pan-Malaysia Islamic (PAS) party's spiritual leader Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat said smoking was un-Islamic and people who smoked did not fully understand Islam, state Bernama news agency reported late Thursday.

"Some Muslims consider smoking haram (forbidden)," the elderly religious leader said.

"I prefer to choose candidates who do not smoke. By now they should understand the party's requirements that to contest in the election, they must have the characteristics of a true Islamic leader," he said.


Neocon Bill Kristol expects Bush to attack Pakistan

Fox News on Thursday asked Neoconservative Bill Kristol to comment on the interim progress report on Iraq, which is about to be released and is expected to show an even split between benchmarks which show progress and those which do not.

"They're silly benchmarks, a lot of them," said Kristol. "The military situation is better than anyone expected. ... If Bush can just hang on there and beat back the people in Congress who want to snatch defeat out of the jaws of possible success ... I think we're going to win this war."

Comment: Amazing how "al Qaeda's" propaganda always seem to fit in with Neocons' objectives.
