Rumbled! Mossad gaffe reveals 'Iran ship photos' were forged

Iran says labels reading 'Ministry of Sepah', a body that no longer exists, are enough to prove that the photos released by Israel are forged.
After Israel released photos it said proved that a huge shipment of weapons for Hezbollah came from Tehran, Iranian news agencies publish evidence showing that the photos are forged.

Israeli naval sources recently claimed that they found a large cache of Iranian-made arms when they stormed a vessel near Cyprus in the Mediterranean Sea.

They claimed that the ship was heading for the Hezbollah resistance movement, either in Lebanon or Syria.

Iran instantly dismissed the claims, issuing a statement with which it condemned Israel's many acts of piracy in international waters.

A woman who suspected her 68-year-old husband of propositioning teenagers on the internet posed as a schoolgirl to lure him into a trap.

Cheryl Roberts, 61, created a false profile and pretended to be 14 as she exchanged intimate messages with him in a chat room. After he asked her for sex she reported him to the police.

David Roberts found out that he had been making advances to his own wife only after being arrested. He admitted that he had hoped to have sex with the "schoolgirl".

On Wednesday he was ordered to attend a programme for sex offenders as part of a three-year community order. He was also banned from contacting children on the internet and will have to register as a sex offender. Mrs Roberts was praised by a children's charity for reporting her husband.

Terrorism has been defined as "a criminal act that influences an audience beyond the immediate victim". We agree, but the question is, what entity today has the greatest capacity to carry out criminal acts and influence an audience beyond the immediate victim? Figure that one out, and you've got the real terrorists.

But first, let's look at some of the influences we've all come under during the month of October. Vaccination season has kicked off in US, Canada and UK and Obama has declared the swine flu a national emergency! Well, if Mr. Charm, Change and Hope says so, it must be true! Right? Read on and we'll take you through the talking points...

Pouring money into the private banking system has only fixed the economy for bankers and the wealthy; it has not done much to address either the fundamental problem of unemployment or the debt trap so many Americans find themselves in.

President Obama's $787 billion stimulus plan has so far failed to halt the growth of unemployment: 2.7 million jobs have been lost since the stimulus plan began. California has lost 336,400 jobs. Arizona has lost 77,300. Michigan has lost 137,300. A total of 49 states and the District of Columbia have all reported net job losses.

Canada: Psychopath named long-term offender

Judge sends man to prison after girlfriend terrorized with 'spectacularly gratuitous' violence

Ottawa - A diagnosed psychopath who once plunged a fork into his girlfriend's eye and had what a judge described as a long and "deeply troubling" history of violently abusing and threatening his intimate partners has been declared a long-term offender and sentenced to nine years in prison.

Ontario Superior Court Justice Colin McKinnon said it was time for Jason Kirk Bone, 29, to "graduate" to the federal prison system after years of harsh warnings he wouldn't heed from judges and Crown attorneys about more severe punishments if he didn't address problems with anger, jealousy and severe drug and alcohol abuse.


Canada-wide hunt for violent sexual deviant

A B.C. woman -- the traumatized sexual-assault victim of a violent psychopath -- has sought police protection since learning her attacker is on the loose.

Rapist Dean Robert Zimmerman disappeared from his Calgary home less than two weeks after being released from prison for sexual assaults, and police say he's already wanted for new offences.

Zimmerman, 44, who is described as a psychopath whose violence toward women is escalating to a deadly level, skipped out on a meeting with Calgary police last Wednesday. There are fears he will strike again.

"There is a likelihood you would commit an offence causing serious harm or death," the National Parole Board wrote Oct. 29, 2008. The "degree of violence toward your victims appears to escalating."

Evangelical Churches involved in torture and murder of thousands of children denounced as witches

This Aug. 18, 2009 photo shows children accused of witchcraft waiting for food at the Children's Rights and Rehabilitation Network in Eket, Nigeria. The idea of witchcraft is hardly new, but it has taken on new life recently partly because of a rapid growth in evangelical Christianity. Campaigners against the practice say around 15,000 children have been accused in two of Nigeria's 36 states over the past decade and around 1,000 have been murdered.

Eket, Nigeria - The nine-year-old boy lay on a bloodstained hospital sheet crawling with ants, staring blindly at the wall.

His family pastor had accused him of being a witch, and his father then tried to force acid down his throat as an exorcism. It spilled as he struggled, burning away his face and eyes. The emaciated boy barely had strength left to whisper the name of the church that had denounced him - Mount Zion Lighthouse.

A month later, he died.

Nwanaokwo Edet was one of an increasing number of children in Africa accused of witchcraft by pastors and then tortured or killed, often by family members. Pastors were involved in half of 200 cases of "witch children" reviewed by the AP, and 13 churches were named in the case files.

South Wales cat killer strikes again

A serial cat killer in South Wales appears to have struck again just a few miles from where eight pets mysteriously died in the summer.

This time four cats are suspected to have been killed after drinking poisonous anti-freeze left out for them in Caldy Close, Barry, according to The Sun.

It follows the first eight cats dying of the same cause in Underwood Place, Bridgend, some 10 miles away, in July and August.


Connecting the Dots: The Axis of Evil Closes in on Iran's Nuclear Sites, while the G20 stamps on our Civil Rights

In the great global chess match, the Axis of Evil exchanges pieces with Russia towards a check-mate on Iran, while Afghanistan is set to be the proving ground of an open-ended military strategy.

The G20 crowns itself queen of the global economy, as our civil liberties are pawned off the board for the illusion of security.

If the audience is the human masses, they seem blithely disinterested in the high-stakes moves on the board and only vaguely aware that beneath the board itself Mother Nature is shaking the table, rattling the Earth and making waves.

September was yet another episode in the slow motion collision of humanity's tragic history and reality.

Saeed Jalili
Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili says all nations should have the right to peaceful nuclear technology.

He told a press conference in Geneva that Iran will not abandon its nuclear right, urging world powers to respect each country's right to peaceful nuclear energy.

"We are committed to our commitment in the framework of the NPT (Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty), and at the same time we will go ahead and stick to our nuclear rights in the framework of the NPT," Jalili said after his talks with six world powers on Iran's nuclear drive.

Jalili also emphasized that the world needed to get rid of nuclear warheads, adding that the Islamic Republic believes no country should have such armaments.
