Annapolis—wedding or disaster of the year…

Best Man—President George Bush—and Matron of Honour—Condoleezza Rice—are becoming increasingly frustrated as the reluctant bride—Israel—and a very impatient groom—the Palestinian Authority—continue haggling over the substantial dowry the groom is demanding from the bride’s family before the wedding of the year can go ahead in Annapolis this month—or maybe next month.

Belgium: Eurabization Report 2007

By Filip Dewinter,

The situation in Belgium does not differ significantly from the situation in other Western European countries, except for the fact that it might be worse here than elsewhere because Belgium is an artificial state without a national identity to defend.

Two-faced oil Sheiks who trade in terror

image By Prof. Michael Burleigh, Daily Mail

The arrival yesterday of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia on a state visit has already generated more than the usual share of hypocrisy from both sides of a relationship built not on affection but on oil and commerce.

Even before he set off from Riyadh, the King chided our security services for allegedly ignoring Saudi warnings about the imminence of the 7/7 London bombings and for being half-hearted in combating terrorism.

Since Saudi Arabia is perhaps the most potent force behind global terrorism, promoting a deeply fundamentalist strain of Islamic theology worldwide, this must be one of the most hypocritical statements of all time.

The Necklace

Gujarat, India. Gold and woman are almost synonymous to each other. It is very rare to find a woman who does not get attracted towards gold and jewelry. It is the same with me also, but most of us are not aware that the net gold investment turns out to be a loss instead of gain. How? Well, you will be able to find more about it when you read my experience and co-relate it with that of yours.

Are we All Nazis Now

One of the greatest injustices to the victims of racism, and in particular the holocaust, is the trivialization of it. One does not have to agree with the Dutch “Islamophobic” anti-immigration politicians Geert Wilders or Rita Verdonk, but what kind of person writes something like: “Whenever I see people such as Wilders and Verdonk I think of the Kristallnacht! The moment the Jews were rounded up…”?

Anti-Islamization Protesters Left Bloodied with Beating with Iron Bars and Stabbing by Muslim thugs

imageby Adrian Morgan.
As I mentioned earlier a campaign has been mounted in Europe called Stop Islamisation of Europe. This group’s aim is self-evident - to oppose multicultural policies which have allowed Islamists to wield political influence, and the encroachment of Islam in Europe. They regard this spread of a potentially violent religion/ideology as a threat to the values which built Europe. They are not racist - their slogan is “Racism is the lowest form of human stupidity, but Islamophobia is the height of common sense.”

Strategic Implications of the Surge in Oil Prices

By Shmuel Even

During the month of October, the price of Brent light crude oil reached a peak of $90 per barrel.  That surge follows continuous rises since 2003.  In real terms, oil prices are now significantly higher than during the “first wave” of price rises after the 1973 Yom Kippur War and are close to the all-time high reached during the “second wave” that followed the Islamic Revolution in Iran.

Turks Set Cars Alight in Brussels

Tonight (Wednesday evening) heavy rioting erupted in Turkish quarters of Brussels, the capital of Belgium. Buses and trams were attacked. Several cars were torched and shops destroyed. Police forces were unable to restore law and order in the boroughs of Sint-Joost-ten-Node and Schaarbeek where since last Sunday the animosity among Turks is running high. Turkish flags are omnipresent. In some streets the Turkish crescent and star adorns almost every house.
