STATUS OBAMA SEBAGAI WARGANEGARA US DIPERTIKAIKAN

Terdapat rakyat Amerika yang mempertikaikan status kewarganegaraan sekaligus kelayakan Obama sebagai Presiden US. Wujud juga tuduhan yang mengaitkan sijil kelahiran Obama di Hawaii pada 4hb OGOS 1961 SEBAGAI SIJIL PALSU KERANA ketiadaan tanda cop yang timbul. Di negara kita bagaimana rekod kelahiran dan kematian disimpan? Bolehkah orang yang telah disahkan mati hidup balik dan pergi membuang undi?

Ya boleh, kerana kad pengenalannya digunakan oleh orang lain yang belum mati untuk tujuan mengundi. Oleh kerana itu, pegawai tempat mengundi dan agen polling perlu amanah serta cekap. Jawatankuasa UPU/UDM dan anak buahnya mestilah melakukan culaan terutama sekali berdasarkan DAFTAR PEMILIH yang digunapakai. PENTING: Agen polling yang pertama dan giliran seterusnya hendaklah memastikan BUKU DAFTAR PEMILIH yang digunakan oleh KETUA TEMPAT MENGUNDI, agen polling BN dan anda hendaklah SAMA DAN SALINAN YANG SAH SEPERTI SALINAN ASAL


WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court has turned down an emergency appeal from a New Jersey man who says President-elect Barack Obama is ineligible to be president because he was a British subject at birth. The court did not comment on its order Monday rejecting the call by Leo Donofrio of East Brunswick, N.J., to intervene in the presidential election.

Donofrio says that since Obama had dual nationality at birth — his mother was American and his Kenyan father at the time was a British subject — he cannot possibly be a "natural born citizen," one of the requirements the Constitution lists for eligibility to be president.

Donofrio also contends that two other candidates, Republican John McCain and Socialist Workers candidate Roger Calero, also are not natural-born citizens and thus ineligible to be president.

At least one other appeal over Obama's citizenship remains at the court. Philip J. Berg of Lafayette Hill, Pa., argues that Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii as Obama says and Hawaii officials have confirmed.

Berg says Obama also may be a citizen of Indonesia, where he lived as a boy. Federal courts in Pennsylvania have dismissed Berg's lawsuit. Federal courts in Ohio and Washington state have rejected similar lawsuits.

Allegations raised on the Internet say the birth certificate, showing that Obama was born in Hawaii on Aug. 4, 1961, is a fake.

But Hawaii Health Department Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino and the state's registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, say they checked health department records and have determined there's no doubt Obama was born in Hawaii.

The nonpartisan Web site Factcheck.org examined the original document and said it does have a raised seal and the usual evidence of a genuine document.

In addition, Factcheck.org reproduced an announcement of Obama's birth, including his parents' address in Honolulu, that was published in the Honolulu Advertiser on Aug. 13, 1961.

(This version CORRECTS that Hawaii officials, not secretary of state, confirmed Obama birth certificate.)

Ribuan umat Islam di sini mengadakan demonstrasi secara aman membantah kekejaman rejim haram Yahudi terhadap penduduk Islam di Palestin di kota Baharu. Manakala lebih lima ribu berarak ke kedutaan US di KL sehingga Jalan Tun Razak mengalami kesesakan lalulintas.

Demonstrasi itu diketuai Menteri Besar, Tuan Guru Dato' Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat yang turut sama disertai timbalannya, Dato' Ahmad Yakob; Speaker Dun Kelantan, Ustaz Nasuruddin Daud; Timbalan Speaker, Mohd Zaki Ibrahim dan anggota Exco, Mejar (B) Md Anizam Abdul Rahman.

Menteri Besar turut membakar replika patung George W Bush dan Presiden Israel, Shimon Peres serta bendera Amerika Syarikat dan Israel.

Sebelum itu, Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz dan orang ramai memijak gambar kedua-dua pemimpin yang diletak di atas jalan.


Demonstrasi itu dianjurkan Dewan Pemuda PAS Kelantan dan Lajnah Kebajikan Badan Perhubungan PAS Negeri diadakan sebaik sahaja selesai kuliah mingguan Menteri Besar di Medan Ilmu.

Ribuan penduduk tempatan yang mengikuti kuliah sejak jam 8.30 pagi turut sama berdemonstrasi dengan melaungkan 'Allahuakbar, Hidup-Hidup Islam, Jahanam Israel dan Hancur Amerika.'

Demonstrasi itu merupakan kali kedua diadakan di Kelantan, minggu lepas pelajar Kolej Islam Antarabangsa Sultan Ismail Petra dan Akademi Islam Universiti Malaya berhimpun di perkarangan Masjid Kampung Laut di Nilam Puri.

Sebaik sahaja tamat kuliah pagi Jumaat, teriak Hidup Islam, jahanam Israel dan hancur Amerika mulai kedengaran. Orang ramai kecil, besar, tua dan muda bersemangat meneriakkan perkataan tersebut.

Kebencian orang ramai begitu membuak terhadap kekejaman Yahudi yang merantah tubuh-tubuh tidak berdosa di Palestin melalui serangan tidak berperikemannusiaan, dilancarkan tentera Israel sejak akhir Disember lalu.

Timbalan Pengerusi Kelab Penyokong Kerajaan Kelantan, Drs Zainuddin Awang Hamat mempelawa rakyat negeri ini mendaftar diri untuk pergi ke Palestin bagi membantu rakyat negara tersebut.

Katanya, beliau dan Adun Gaal, Dr Nik Mazian Nik Mohamad sudah mendaftar menyertai misi bantuan ke Palestin.

Mohd Zaki yang juga Ketua Dewan Pemuda PAS Kelantan berkata, semua umat Islam tidak kira di mana mereka berada perlu menyatakan bantahan terhadap kekejaman rejim Yahudi.

"Kita tidak boleh mengharapkan orang lain bagi membantu umat Islam di Palestin. Kita juga tidak boleh harapkan Pertubuhan Bangsa-Bangsa Bersatu dan Persidangan Negara Islam yang tidak mampu berbuat apa-apa lagi.

"Oleh itu umat Islam wajib membantu dengan sekadar yang mampu melalui sumbangan yang dihulurkan kepada tabung yang dilancarkan pada majlis ini," katanya.

Beliau juga mengajak orang ramai mulai sekarang memboikot produk keluaran Amerika Syarikat dan negara-negara yang bersekongkol dengan Yahudi Israel.

Pada himpunan itu dibaca qunut nazilah yang diketuai Ketua Dewan Pemuda PAS Kota Bharu, Ustaz Mohd Baharuddin Mohd Noor.

Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz berkata, salah satu cara bagi mengajar Israel dan Amerika Syarikat jangan membeli produk keluaran negara terbabit.

"Kita usah lagi membeli pisang kaki yang ditanam orang Yahudi di bumi Palestin yang dirampas mereka. Produk itu ada dijual di Singapura dan negara ini. Kita juga jangan lagi menggunakan Dollar Amerika dan beralih kepada matawang Euro atau Yen, Jepun.

"Coca Cola jangan lagi kita minum, umat Islam di Selatan Thailand sudah lama memulau minuman keluaran Amerika itu," katanya.

Sementara itu, ribuan umat Islam mengerjakan solat hajat di Masjid Muhammadi selepas menunaikan solat Jumaat memohon keselamatan kepada umat Islam di Palestin.

Selepas itu mereka memijak gambar Bush dan Shimon beramai-ramai, yang diletak di pintu masjid masjid.

IRAN LARANG PELAJARNYA MENYERTAI PENGEBOM BERANI MATI TAPI BANTU CARA LAIN

Kumpulan pelajar Iran membuat kenyataan bahawa lebih 70,00 orang Iran seluruh negara telah mendaftar sebagai sukarelawan pengebom berani mati sejak Israel melancarkan serangan terhadap HAMAS yang memerintah Gaza pada 27 Disember 2008. Pengeboman Israel ke atas Gaza telah meragut 700 nayawa rakyat Palestin. Ini telah membangkitkan kemarahan Iran serta penduduk dunia.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei berbeza pendapat dengan Presiden Mahmoud Ahmadinejad yang mana meminta Iran mengambil pendirian yang lebih keras dalam konflik HAMAS-Israel.

The student groups claim that more than 70,000 people throughout Iran have registered as volunteer suicide bombers since Israel launched its assault against Hamas-ruled Gaza on Dec. 27. Israel's bombardment of Gaza, which has killed about 700 Palestinians, has outraged many in Iran and the rest of the world.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's ban sought to tone down calls by allies of hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to toughen Iran's stand against Israel.


Iran Bans Homicide Bomber Volunteers, Saying It Will Assist Hamas in Other Ways


Thursday, January 08, 2009

AP

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's top leader banned hardline Iranian volunteers on Thursday from leaving the country to carry out suicide bombings against Israel but warned that Iran would not spare any effort to assist the militant group Hamas in other ways.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's ban sought to tone down calls by allies of hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to toughen Iran's stand against Israel. But they also exposed hidden rifts between the supreme leader and the president five months before elections in which Ahmadinejad, whose popularity has been waning, is seeking a second term.

Hardline Iranian student groups had asked the government to authorize volunteers to go carry out suicide bombings in Israel in support of Hamas. The students began signing up volunteers after Khamenei issued a religious decree on Dec. 28 saying anyone killed while defending Palestinians in Gaza against Israeli attacks would be considered a martyr. But a week later, Khamenei's comments sharply contrasted his religious order.

"I thank the pious and devoted youth who have asked to go to Gaza ... but it must be noted that our hands are tied in this arena," Khamenei said on state television. He did not elaborate about what efforts Iran would take to help Hamas in other ways.

The student groups claim that more than 70,000 people throughout Iran have registered as volunteer suicide bombers since Israel launched its assault against Hamas-ruled Gaza on Dec. 27. Israel's bombardment of Gaza, which has killed about 700 Palestinians, has outraged many in Iran and the rest of the world. Israel says it launched its campaign in retaliation for Hamas rocket fire aimed at civilians in southern Israeli towns.

Iran is Hamas' main backer, and Israel has accused Iran of providing Hamas with weapons. Iran has denied the charges, saying its backing for the militant group is limited to political and financial support.

Iran also considers Israel its archenemy, and Ahmadinejad has called for Israel to be "wiped off the map."

Khamenei also criticized the United Nations and European powers for their failure to condemn Israeli bombardment of Gaza, saying Israeli attacks won't stop Palestinian resistance.

"Even if the enemy (Israel), God forbids, kills all Hamas and Palestinian combatants ... such crimes won't resolve the issue. Undoubtedly, Palestine will stand up stronger and will ultimately achieve victory," he said.

Iranian political analyst Saeed Leilaz said hardline student groups, provoked by Ahmadinejad, were getting out of control and Khamenei intervened to end any possible political manipulation of students by the president.

Criticism of Ahmadinejad has been increasing in the wake of rising inflation and the belief by some conservatives and reformists that his anti-Western rhetoric has done more harm than good for the country.

"Ahmadinejad has used the Gaza fighting as an opportunity to further radicalize the political situation in Iran for two reasons: to provoke tensions in order to cause a hike in oil prices and improve his chances of re-election in the presidential vote in June. But the top leader doesn't support a further radicalization of Iran," he said.

Oil prices have plummeted from a high near $150 in July last year to around $35 — severely straining the Iranian economy and undermining Ahmadinejad's ability to pursue his economic agenda. In recent days, oil prices has been increasing, reaching about $43 a barrel on Wednesday.

Khamenei has strongly supported Ahmadinejad since his election in 2005, but the two don't necessarily agree on all issues. Khamenei, who stands above factional politics but generally supports hardliners over reformists, reversed a decision by Ahmadinejad last year and ordered him to implement a law supplying natural gas to remote villages during a dispute with the parliament.

Leilaz said it was clear that Iran won't allow suicide bombers to cross its border and fight Israel and Ahmadinejad simply sought to manipulate the issue for his own political agenda.

In the past week, Ahmadinejad allies have been encouraging hardline students to gather in various cities. Mahdi Kalhor, Ahmadinejad's press adviser, sought to further inflame hardline protests last week when he urged the students take measures beyond street demonstrations.

"We have to be a pioneer nation (in assisting Hamas) ... why should we not be in Gaza today?" Kalhor asked a hardline student gathering on Sunday.

The same day, Ahmadinejad's brother was ordered to address the same students to calm them down. Davoud Ahmadinejad told the gathering an hour later that it was not possible to send any volunteers to Gaza, according to the semiofficial Fars news agency.

On Dec. 30, dozens of hardline students broke into the British Embassy residence in Tehran, accusing Britain of supporting the Israeli air assault on Gaza.

HAMAS DAN ISRAEL MASING-MASING TOLAK PERDAMAIAN TAJAAN PBB

Resolusi Majlis Keselamatan PBB telah diluluskan pada malam Khamis lalu, dengan undian 14-0
sementara US mengambil sikap berkecuali. Resolusi itu " menekankan kepentingan dan tindakan segera untuk gencatan senjata yang serta merta berkuatkuasa, mampu bertahan dan dihormati, ke arah penarikan balik sepenuhnya tentera Israel di Gaza".

((Sila klik pada imej untuk dibesarkan))

Regime Israel mahu sebarang gencatan senjata mestilah disertai dengan jaminan bahawa tiada serangan roket oleh HAMAS dan tiada penyeludupan senjata di Gaza. Dilaporkan bahawa semasa gencatan senjata yang berkuatkuasa selama 6 bulan yang lalu, HAMAS telah menggunakan terowong bawah tanah di sempadan Mesir-Gaza untuk menyeludup roket jarak sederhana yang ia sekarang sedang gunakan untuk mencapai sasaran jauh ke dalam Israel.

Manakala pihak HAMAS pula tidak mahu menerima sebarang perjanjian yang tidak memasukkan klausa pembukaan sepenuhnya laluan sempadan yang ditutup. Pihak Israel berkemungkinan tidak akan menerima permintaan puak HAMAS itu justeru ini akan membolehkan HAMAS memperkasakan kawalan ke atas kawasan yang dikuasainya pada Jun 2007.

The U.N. Security Council resolution was approved Thursday night by a 14-0 vote, with the United States abstaining. The resolution "stresses the urgency of and calls for an immediate, durable and fully respected cease-fire, leading to the full withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza."


Israel's government says any cease-fire must guarantee an end to rocket fire and arms smuggling into Gaza. During a six-month cease-fire that ended with the current operation, Hamas is thought to have used tunnels under the Egypt-Gaza border to smuggle in the medium-range rockets it is now using to hit deeper than ever inside Israel.

Hamas has said it won't accept any agreement that does not include the full opening Gaza's blockaded border crossings. Israel is unlikely to agree to that demand, as it would allow Hamas to strengthen its hold on the territory which it violently seized in June 2007

Israel and Hamas Reject U.N. Truce, Intensify Attacks


Friday, January 09, 2009

FOXnews/ AFP

Israeli jets and helicopters bombarded Gaza on Friday and Hamas responded with a barrage of rockets, as Israel's government said it will press forward with its offensive despite a U.N. resolution calling for an immediate cease-fire.

One Israeli airstrike killed two Hamas militants and another unidentified man, while another flattened a five-story building in northern Gaza, killing at least seven people, including an infant, Hamas security officials said. By midday, 19 Palestinians had been killed.

In all, Israeli aircraft struck more than 30 targets before dawn, and constant explosions continued after first light. Friday's deaths in Gaza pushed the Palestinian death toll to more than 760 in the two-week-old conflict, with at least half of them civilians, according to Gaza health officials. Thirteen Israelis have died.


In Israel's first official response to the U.N. Security Council resolution, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's office said Israel "has never agreed to let an external body decide its right to protect the security of its citizens."

The military "will continue acting to protect Israeli citizens and will carry out the missions it was given," the statement read. The rockets fell in Israel on Friday "only prove that the U.N.'s decision is not practical and will not be kept in practice by the Palestinian murder organizations."


Israel launched its assault on Dec. 27 in an attempt to halt years of rocket fire from the Hamas-controlled territory.

Despite the devastating offensive, Hamas continued to bombard residents of southern Israel. Rockets hit Friday morning across southern Israel, including in and around Beersheba and Ashkelon, which — like other cities within rocket range of Gaza — have largely been paralyzed since the fighting began.

The U.N. Security Council resolution was approved Thursday night by a 14-0 vote, with the United States abstaining. The resolution "stresses the urgency of and calls for an immediate, durable and fully respected cease-fire, leading to the full withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza."


Israel and Hamas were not parties to the council vote and it is now up to them to stop the fighting. But a Hamas spokesman said the Islamic militant group "is not interested" in the cease-fire because it was not consulted and the resolution did not meet its minimum demands.

Israel called up thousands of reserve troops earlier in the week, and they are now ready for action.

The Security Council action came hours after a U.N. agency suspended food deliveries to Gaza, and the Red Cross accused Israel of blocking medical assistance after forces fired on aid workers. It also followed concerns of a wider conflict after militants in Lebanon fired rockets into northern Israel early Thursday, though the border has been quiet since.

The United States abstained from the Security Council vote even though it helped hammer out the resolution's text along with Arab nations that have ties to Hamas and the Palestinians in the Israeli-occupied territories.

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said the U.S. "fully supports" the resolution but abstained "to see the outcomes of the Egyptian mediation" with Israel and Hamas, also aimed at achieving a cease-fire.

The resolution expresses "grave concern" at the escalating violence and the deepening humanitarian crisis in Gaza and emphasizes the need to open all border crossings and achieve a lasting solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict.

It also calls on U.N. member states "to intensify efforts to provide arrangements and guarantees in Gaza in order to sustain a durable cease-fire and calm, including to prevent illicit trafficking in arms and ammunition and to ensure the sustained reopening" of border crossings.

In addition, the resolution "condemns all violence and hostilities directed against civilians" and calls for "unimpeded humanitarian access to Gaza."

Osama Hamdan, a Hamas envoy to Lebanon, told the al-Arabiya satellite channel that the group "is not interested in it because it does not meet the demands of the movement."

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said the U.N. failed to consider the interests of the Palestinian people. "This resolution doesn't mean that the war is over," he told the al-Jazeera satellite television network. "We call on the Palestinian fighters to mobilize and be ready to face the offensive, and we urge the Arab masses to carry on with their angry protests."

Following the resolution, Egypt was expected to take the lead in persuading Israel and Hamas to accept it. Israeli representatives returned home from talks in Cairo Thursday, and Hamas was due to send political leaders to the Egyptian capital on Saturday.

Israel's government says any cease-fire must guarantee an end to rocket fire and arms smuggling into Gaza. During a six-month cease-fire that ended with the current operation, Hamas is thought to have used tunnels under the Egypt-Gaza border to smuggle in the medium-range rockets it is now using to hit deeper than ever inside Israel.

Hamas has said it won't accept any agreement that does not include the full opening Gaza's blockaded border crossings. Israel is unlikely to agree to that demand, as it would allow Hamas to strengthen its hold on the territory which it violently seized in June 2007.

With Israeli troops now in control of many of the open areas used by militants to launch rockets, gunman have continued shooting from inside populated neighborhoods.

The conflict has left hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in Gaza increasingly desperate for food, water, fuel and medical assistance, and the situation was expected to worsen as humanitarian efforts fall victim to the fighting.

One of the dead Thursday was a Ukrainian woman, the first foreigner to die in the fighting, according to Gaza Health Ministry official Dr. Moaiya Hassanain. He said the woman was married to a Palestinian doctor who trained in Ukraine and returned with her to Gaza. Her 2-year-old son was also killed in the tank shelling east of Gaza City, he said.

Details are emerging of other incidents in which civilians were killed. A U.N. agency said Israeli troops evacuated Palestinian civilians to a house in Gaza City on Jan. 4, then shelled the building 24 hours later, killing 30 people.

The U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs report was based on eyewitness testimony. It added details to an incident previously reported by The Associated Press and an Israeli human rights group.

The U.N. agency said 110 people were in the house. The 30 people reported killed is a far higher figure than in other accounts.

The Israeli military had no comment on the report Friday.

The West Bank saw its biggest protests so far Friday, as thousands took to the streets following prayers to express their anger at the Israeli offensive. In Ramallah, scuffles broke out between supporters of Hamas and the rival Fatah faction.

Israel launched its offensive Dec. 27 in response to cross-border rocket attacks by the Islamic group Hamas — which the United States and Israel consider a terrorist organization and whose charter calls for the destruction of the state of Israel.

HOLOGRAM IBU-AYAH PENAWAR RINDU

Pentagon telah lama menyedari hakikat bahawa dengan memastikan anggota keluarga di rumah aman dan sejahtera, tentera US di luar negara dapat meningkatkan prestasi mereka. " Stres bekerja di luar negara dapat dikurangkan jika pasangan serta anak-anak dapat berbual-bual dengan mereka tersayang di kala tertekan atau pemergian yang lama" menurut jurucakap Pentagon yang sedang mencari syarikat yang boleh meneroka konsep di atas. Pentagon kini mencari aplikasi inovatif yang meneroka dan menggunakan kaedah multimedia interaktif teknologi komputer bagi mengeluarkan dialog interaktif antara anggota keluarga yang berkhidmat di luar negara dengan yang tinggal di rumah melalui PC atau aplikasi web video footage atau 3-D. Inilah gambaran pengalaman serta penderitaan yang dialami oleh ahli keluarga serta GI Amerika di seberang laut demi menjaga kepentingan US di segenap pelusuk dunia sesuai dengan ianya menganggap serta melantik negaranya sebagai POLIS DUNIA.
Apa jadi jika tentera berkenaan sudah meninggal dunia tetapi "masih hidup" dalam alam siber.
The Pentagon has long recognized that keeping families calm back home makes for better warriors overseas. "The stresses of deployment might be softened if spouses, and especially children, could conduct simple conversations with their loved ones in immediate times of stress or prolonged absence," says the Pentagon solicitation seeking companies to develop the concept. "We are looking for innovative applications that explore and harness the power of advanced interactive multimedia computer technologies to produce compelling interactive dialogue between a service member and their families via a PC- or web-based application using video footage or high-resolution 3-D rendering."

When Daddy Is Off at War: A Hologram Home?

By Mark Thompson / Washington

Friday, Jan. 09, 2009

The computerized parental images envisioned by the Pentagon are not as sophisticated as the holograms from Star Wars, but they will help reassure little ones whose parents have been called overseas.

The computerized parental images envisioned by the Pentagon are not as sophisticated as the holograms from Star Wars, but they will help reassure little ones whose parents have been called overseas.

The Pentagon soon will begin paying monthly bonuses of up to $500 to troops barred from leaving the military because they're needed for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. A fatter paycheck will take some of the sting out of the military's high demand for troops and the resulting "stop loss" policy. But it won't do anything to dry the tears of soldiers' children distraught over Dad or Mom's absence. Now, the Pentagon wants to create computerized hologram-like moms and dads that can talk with the kids when their parents are deployed far from home and beyond telephone or e-mail contact.

But don't expect the hologram scene from Star Wars where Princess Leia appears to ask "Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi." The Pentagon is still looking for the right technique and technology — at the right price. The parameters are simple: lonely kids should be able to "boot up" Dad or Mom on their home computer. "The child should be able to have a simulated conversation with a parent about generic, everyday topics," the Defense Department's solicitation reads. "For instance, a child may get a response from saying 'I love you,' or 'I miss you,' or 'Good night.'" The goal: reassuring little ones whose parent has suddenly disappeared. "The children don't quite understand Mommy or Daddy being deployed," says Navy Commander Russell Shilling, the experimental psychologist overseeing the program. "That kind of interaction — the need to say goodnight or to continue to feel connected to a parent — is very important."

The Pentagon has long recognized that keeping families calm back home makes for better warriors overseas. "The stresses of deployment might be softened if spouses, and especially children, could conduct simple conversations with their loved ones in immediate times of stress or prolonged absence," says the Pentagon solicitation seeking companies to develop the concept. "We are looking for innovative applications that explore and harness the power of advanced interactive multimedia computer technologies to produce compelling interactive dialogue between a service member and their families via a PC- or web-based application using video footage or high-resolution 3-D rendering."

The requirement for voice recognition and its customized, family-specific nature, make the idea technically challenging. Not to mention the need for artificial intelligence to respond appropriately to what the child might say. "The application should incorporate an AI that allows for flexibility in language comprehension to give the illusion of a natural (but simple) interaction," the solicitation says.

The Pentagon's Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury wants deploying parents to record their end of conversations before they ship out. Shilling's proposal says more than 80% of kids between the ages of three and five in the U.S. regularly use computers, and that "talking" to a "parent" via one would "capture their interest and imagination." Companies interested in participating have until January 14 to tell the Pentagon just how they would do it. Around April, the Pentagon plans to award up to three contracts of up to $100,000 each to begin work on what it calls its Virtual Dialogue Application for Families of Deployed Service Members.

Catherine Caldwell-Harris, a psychology professor at Boston University, says humans have always sought more realistic images of loved ones far away. "It used to be artist sketches, then photos, then video," she says, "and this may just be the next step to facilitate our memories." While she applauds the research that will be required to develop the application, she's unsure about kids' reactions to it. "How would a young child understand an artificial-intelligence program that is a simulacrum of their parent?" she asks.

Blogs have been asking similar questions, calling the idea "creepy" and wondering what happens to a military kid whose parent is killed in action but continues to "live on" in cyberspace. Shilling says if the military discovers the idea is too challenging — or won't benefit the troops and their families — the project won't go forward. "Part of the research is to look at its safety and efficacy," he says. "We'd never put anything out until we are certain that it is good for the family."

Spouses left on the home front also might have mixed feelings. "Would the AI spouse be a nice stimulant to my own memories?" Caldwell-Harris wonders. "Or would I even get more angry at the Army and think, 'They're just trying to fob off this fancy technology on me so they can send my husband out on his next tour'?" It's obvious the real breakthrough will come when the military can deploy parental holograms, and let Mom and Dad stay at home.

Israel Hit by Rockets From Lebanon, Conflict Widens
FOXnews /Thursday, January 08, 2009

A Hezbollah minister in Lebanon's Cabinet is denying any involvement by the militant group in the firing of rockets from Lebanon into Israel.

At least three rockets were fired, and Israel responded with a few artillery shells into Lebanon, which borders the country to the north. The exchange threatened to open a second front as Israel continues its offensive against the militant group Hamas on its southern border, in the Gaza Strip.

Two people were lightly injured, and the rockets that exploded in Israel's north raised the specter of renewed hostilities with Hezbollah, just 2 1/2 years after Israel battled the guerrilla group to a 34-day stalemate. Hezbollah started the 2006 war as Israel was battling Palestinian militants in Gaza.


Rockets from Lebanon hit Israel amid Gaza offensive


By Allyn Fisher-Ilan / Reuters

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - At least three rockets fired from Lebanon exploded in northern Israel on Thursday, wounding two people, police and medics said, in an attack seen as linked to Israel's offensive against Hamas Islamists in the Gaza Strip.

Israel hit back with artillery shells in what a military spokesman called "a pinpoint response at the source of fire."

It was not immediately clear whether Lebanon's Hezbollah guerrillas -- against whom Israel fought a 2006 war -- or Palestinians fired the rockets, which presented a new challenge to Israeli leaders who have waged attacks on Gaza for 13 days.

Lebanese security sources said it seemed unlikely Hezbollah fired the salvoes. Hamas sources in Lebanon denied involvement.

Israeli forces have been on high alert in the north fearing that Hezbollah could fire rockets into northern Israel as it did in the 2006 conflict and lend support to Hamas and the Gaza Strip's 1.5 million inhabitants.

Israeli warplanes bombed targets across the Gaza Strip on Thursday and tanks advanced in the Hamas-ruled territory as U.S. backing for a truce proposal raised expectations of an end to the onslaught that has killed more than 600 Palestinians.

Shi'ite Hezbollah has not opened fire since Israel started bombarding the Gaza enclave nearly two weeks ago to the south of Israel with the declared aim of halting Hamas rocket attacks.

Palestinian groups in Lebanon have also been known to fire rockets and Israeli military affairs commentators said it was more likely they were responsible for the rockets that hit the Israeli resort town of Nahariya and three other locations.

One rocket punched a hole in the roof of a building in Nahariya that Israeli media said was a home for the elderly and was being evacuated.

"I have decided on two steps -- to send schoolchildren home and that people should remain in shelters," Nahariya Mayor Jackie Sabag said on Israel's Channel Two television.

The Magen David Adom ambulance service said two people in northern Israel were slightly wounded and several were treated for shock after what police said were at least three rocket strikes.

HEAVY BOMBARDMENT

In the occupied West Bank, Israeli police shot and killed a Palestinian man who tried to set fire to a gas station at a Jewish settlement, police said.

Residents in Gaza described the overnight bombardment to the east of the city as among the heaviest in the offensive.

An Israeli air strike killed three gunmen of the Islamic Jihad group in northern Gaza, medics said. Tanks advanced closer to the southern town of Khan Younis, witnesses said.

Residents in Gaza described an overnight bombardment to the east of the city as among the heaviest in the offensive. In the south of the territory tanks advanced closer to the town of Khan Younis, witnesses said.

Although Israel pressed on with the offensive, it said it accepted the "principles" of a European-Egyptian ceasefire proposal. The United States urged Israel to study the plan.

Israel's assault resumed after a brief pause Wednesday to help Gaza's inhabitants stock up on much-needed supplies.

Twenty Palestinians were killed Wednesday, medics said, including three children in an air strike on a car. The total Palestinian deathtoll was at least 661, according to medical officials.

U.N. officials have said a quarter of the Palestinian dead were civilians, while other accounts put that proportion higher.

Ten Israelis have died in the past 13 days, seven of them soldiers, including four killed by "friendly" fire.

With both George W. Bush's outgoing administration and President-elect Barack Obama speaking out on the need for peace, officials said Israel would send an envoy to Cairo to discuss how the Egyptian plan might be implemented.

That may take several days. In the meantime, Israeli military commanders appear determined to keep up the pressure on the ground, even if a decision on whether to launch a new phase by targeting militants in Gaza's urban centres was put off.

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice echoed Israel's concerns that a deal must achieve its goal of stopping the Hamas Islamists who rule Gaza from hitting Israel with rockets.

"It has to be a ceasefire that will not allow a return to the status quo," she said.

Hamas said it was looking at the Egyptian plan, brokered by France, which addresses Israel's demand that the militant group be prevented from rearming through smuggling tunnels from Egypt. The proposal also addresses Hamas's call for an end to Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip.

Tuesday's killing by Israeli shells of 42 people, including women and children sheltering in a U.N.-run school in Jabalya refugee camp, intensified international pressure on Israel to call a halt. U.N. officials denied an Israeli army account that militants had been firing from the school.

Israel has said it will press on until Hamas can no longer hit its southern towns with rockets. Israeli leaders face a parliamentary election in a month and will want to show the public that they have met that objective.

However, U.S. involvement of the kind that helped end the Lebanon war and which was perceived as absent in the first week of the Gaza fighting may indicate that, whatever the state of combat on the ground, a ceasefire could be on the cards.

Some Israeli analysts say Israel faces a deadline to wrap up its campaign by the time Obama is sworn in, or risk a strain in ties with Washington at the outset of the new administration.

European governments have proposed backing the Egyptian ceasefire proposal with an EU force along the Gaza-Egypt border that would prevent Hamas, which seized control of Gaza in 2007, from rearming through its many tunnels

Hamas called off a six-month ceasefire late last month, accusing Israel of breaking an agreement to ease supplies.

ISRAEL AND USA POSSESS ANOTHER HOLISTIC WEAPON AGAINST HAMAS: YOUSEF

Yousef, 30, son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef , one of the most influential leaders of HAMAS said he realized the true nature of Hamas and radical Islam during a stint in an Israeli prison. He renounced his Muslim faith, left his family behind in Ramallah and converted to Christianity.

Yousef has sought asylum in the United States and now attends an evangelical Christian church in San Diego, Calif. Yousef, said the organization betrays the Palestinian cause and tortures its own members.
Yousef talks more about his extraordinary story of faith, courage, violence and betrayal in a FOX News documentary, "Escape From Hamas," hosted by Bill Hemme.

VIDEO TENTANG ZIONISM LWN ORTODOKS JUDAISM

Zionist Israeli Thugs are beating up and using tasers on members of the Orthodox Jewish Faith Neturei Karta.

Anti-Zionist Orthodox Jews protesting the desecration of graves by a highway construction project near Haifa were attacked and brutally beaten by private security guards hired by the Ministry of Transportation.

The group, known for being outspokenly critical of the State of Israel and its very existence were peacefully demonstrating at the time. This attack follows a long history of violence against the Orthodox Jewish community.

Consistent with fundamental Jewish beliefs, some of these protesters often take part in demonstrations, side by side with Palestinians, against the State of Israel and its inhuman policies toward the Palestinian people." The apparent strategy of using organized violence through private security personnel against these peaceful protesters is only one of many tactics used by the State of Israel to intimidate and discourage further protests. The police were nowhere to be found at the time or even hours after the melee. Several Rabbis and children were attacked with electric stun gun devices and knives, requiring some to be hospitalized.

Among the injured were Rabbi Leibl Deutsch and Rabbi Yisroel Rothchild, both of Jerusalem who were stabbed in the lower back and leg respectively. The Jewish cemetery at the heart of the incident dates back to the Second Temple era, over 2000 years ago.Some of the caves that comprise the cemetery have been destroyed as a result of the ongoing highway work and there are heightened fears of further desecration as the highway project continues unabated.

On April 26, 2005, thousands of Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem gathered to protest the despicable events which occurred during a protest at Highway 6 near Kibbutz Rigavin when demonstrators against the Highway 6 expansion which was destroying ancient Jewish graves (from the second temple period)were viciously attacked by Security Guards.

In retaliation for the mass protest, Israeli police entered an Orthodox Jewish Synagogue in Jerusalem and attacked devout Jews who were in the shul to pray during the Passover Holiday.




An orthodox jewish man in Israel talks about how his grandparents, who lived in the holy land since before Israel was established, used to be friends with the muslims in the area. They were "like brothers." They used to "babysit each others kids". He says the problem isn't judaism or jews or muslims, but that the problem is zionism.

Israel to Weigh Truce Offer After Gaza School Attack Kills 40


By Calev Ben-David and Saud Abu Ramadan

Jan. 7 (Bloomberg) -- The Israeli government will weigh the future of its military operation against Hamas in the Gaza Strip, as mounting casualties among Palestinian civilians increased pressure for a truce.

At least 40 Palestinians were killed when Israeli forces struck a school run by the United Nations in Gaza, a UN official said. Israel, which struck at least 40 more Hamas targets overnight, said it responded after its soldiers were fired at from the building.

The school deaths yesterday added urgency to diplomatic efforts aimed at reaching a cease-fire as the conflict entered its 12th day. Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak proposed a new initiative last night and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who has been lobbying throughout the region for a truce, said the casualties at the school demonstrate the urgent need to stop the fighting. “Time works against us,” he said.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, UN Secretary- General Ban Ki-moon and U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice backed the proposal and Mubarak’s call for peace talks in Cairo, which may begin as early as today.

“The Security Cabinet will meet this morning to discuss the future of the military effort in Gaza, as well as the diplomatic efforts,” said Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Andy David.

Israeli President Shimon Peres, commenting during an interview with Sky News, said it may take “some days” to study the details of the cease-fire proposal.

Christopher Gunness, a spokesman for the UN Relief and Works Agency in Jerusalem, said in a phone interview he could confirm 40 dead and 45 injured, after three Israeli artillery shells hit the school in northern Gaza.

Rocket-Firing Cell

The Israeli army said in a faxed statement last night its investigations showed that “among the dead in the school were members of the military wing of the Hamas terror organization and a cell firing rockets and mortars at Israeli forces.”

The incident at the school may force the Israeli government to scale back its military offensive aimed at stopping rocket attacks by Palestinian militants on cities and towns in the country’s south.

“If it becomes the dominant story for the next 48 hours, especially in the U.S., then it will give Hamas a significant advantage,” Gerald Steinberg, a professor of political science at Bar-Ilan University, said in a telephone interview.

As during the war in Lebanon in 2006, the current fighting “is as much about images and public relations as it is about military developments,” Steinberg said.

Street Fighting

Israel’s military expanded its hold over the 40-kilometer (25-mile) long coastal territory, fighting in the streets of Gaza City in the north and Khan Yunis in the south. Israel continued its military operations through the night in Gaza, striking at least 40 targets including rocket launching sites, groups of Hamas gunmen, and tunnels used for weapons storage, the army said in an e-mailed statement.

Palestinian militants made their longest strike so far yesterday when a rocket hit the Israeli city of Gedera, 45 kilometers to the north, injuring a 3-month-old infant, police said. A Hamas spokesman said the group’s military wing has dozens of suicide bombers ready to confront Israeli troops in the streets of Gaza.

At least 35 rockets struck Israeli territory yesterday compared with 40 the day before, according to the army. That’s down from a peak of 76 on Dec. 27, the first day of the operation. As many as 3,200 rockets and mortar shells have been fired at Israel since the start of 2008. Rocket attacks have killed four Israelis since fighting began. At least five rockets from Gaza struck Israel this morning, police said.

‘Friendly Fire’

Six Israeli soldiers have been killed since the ground fighting began, the army said. One died on Jan. 4, three died and 24 were wounded by a tank shell in a “friendly fire incident” in northern Gaza on Jan. 5, and two more were killed in separate incidents yesterday, the military said in an e-mailed statement.

At least 630 Palestinians have died in the conflict and 2,600 have been wounded, said Mu’awia Hassanein, chief of emergency medical services in Gaza.

UN officials said as many as a quarter of the Palestinians killed were civilians, a figure Israel disputes as too high.

In reacting to the deaths at the school, the Israeli military accused Hamas of making “cynical use” of civilians by firing from schools.

UNRWA opened several schools as shelters for civilians whose houses in refugee camps were destroyed by Israeli forces. No classes were in session.

“Even though the blue UN flag was flying and visible, Israel targeted our school,” Adnan Abu Hasna, a UNRWA spokesman in Gaza, said in a telephone interview. UNRWA said it was “99.9” percent certain there were no militants in the school.

Mosques, Schools

Several mosques and schools have been struck since Israel began its assault on Gaza 12 days ago. Israel alleges Hamas was using the buildings to hide arms and wanted militants.

Gaza’s water and sewage systems are on the verge of collapse because of power shortages, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said yesterday. More than 530,000 people among Gaza’s population of 1.4 million are completely cut off from running water and the rest receive water only every few days, the agency said in an e-mailed statement.

Israel will open a “humanitarian corridor” into the Gaza Strip, the office of Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said in an e-mailed statement shortly after midnight. It said that certain “geographic areas” would be made accessible to the local population for limited periods of time during which they could “stock up.”

Humanitarian Corridor

The plan for a humanitarian corridor “in no way compromises our call for an immediate cease-fire,” said UNRWA’s Gunness.

Mubarak called for a cease-fire for a “limited period” that would allow food, fuel and medicine to enter Gaza and give time for talks on a “comprehensive and lasting” agreement to end the fighting, French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said.

Israel’s attack on Gaza is “genocide,” Abbas told the UN Security Council late yesterday.

Abbas left New York late yesterday for the Egyptian capital, in response to Mubarak’s invitation, according to Palestinian Authority envoy Saeb Erekat. Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Gabriela Shalev said her government is “considering” the initiative.

“We invite Israelis and Palestinians to meet and discuss how not to renew the fighting, and this includes securing the borders and lifting the blockade,” Mubarak said at a news conference last night in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, after meeting with Sarkozy.

Sarkozy also met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad yesterday after holding talks the day before with Olmert and Abbas.

Syrian Influence

“I am sure that Syria has an influence; Syria should help us convince Hamas to listen to the voice of reason,” Sarkozy said yesterday at a news conference. Al-Assad said he favored a cease-fire, while describing Israel’s offensive in Gaza as a “war crime.”

Venezuela expelled Israel’s ambassador from Caracas yesterday and said the Israeli government should be tried for war crimes over the invasion of the Gaza Strip.

Israel is considering in response whether to expel Venezuela’s charge d’affaires in Tel Aviv, said the Foreign Ministry.

Last week, Israel rejected a French-proposed 48-hour truce with Hamas, saying it was seeking a permanent end to the Gaza rocket attacks.

Israeli stocks climbed yesterday for a seventh day, the longest winning streak since October 2007, following gains in European stocks and U.S. futures. The benchmark TA-25 Index of stocks has gained 12 percent since Dec. 27, when the Gaza offensive began, tracking a global rally.

Economic Blockade

The shekel fell as much as 1.46 percent to 3.8870 per dollar, and traded at 3.8844 as of 5:19 p.m. yesterday.

Israel began the campaign to halt rocket attacks after a six-month cease-fire with Hamas expired Dec. 19. Hamas, designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. and the European Union, refused to renew the truce because it said Israel hadn’t eased its economic blockade of Gaza. Militants fired 70 rockets at Israel the day before the cease-fire ended.

HAMAS MILITANTS HAVE ONE FORMIDABLE WEAPON: IMAN

Hamas' Overmatched Weaponry Could Prove Deadly to Israelis Nonetheless

Tuesday, January 06, 2009



Israeli soldiers are equipped with some of the most advanced personal weaponry available to a modern military, but they nonetheless face great danger on the ground in Gaza.

The Islamist militant group Hamas, masters of asymmetrical warfare, has several key weapons that can inflict heavy casualties on an invading force, despite being overmatched. These weapons were not of great concern to Israel when it was attacking from sea and air. But the danger has increased exponentially since Israel launched its ground assault over the weekend.

One significant danger every Israeli soldier faces in Gaza is a foe who is yearning to give up his life. Hamas has built a force of willing suicide bombers whose explosive vests are typically packed with an assortment of shrapnel to raise the casualty rate among their targets.

While Israeli soldiers are prepared to die in the defense of their country, they are also trained to survive. The suicide bomber is, therefore, a weapon available only to one side of this conflict.

Hamas has been talking tough in the face of superior military power; its leaders have vowed to inflict massive casualties.

"Gaza will be your cemetery," and "we will fight until the last breath," Hamas spokesman Ismail Radwan said in a written statement.

As Israel pushes into Gaza on the ground, it does not know exactly what weapons -- and how many of them -- Hamas possesses.

"We don't know what has been smuggled into Gaza," said David Schenker, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute and a former Pentagon official specializing in Middle East issues.

"Syrians and Iranians have supplied Hamas with training and weaponry," Shenker said, pointing to a variety of weapons used during Israel's 2006 war in Lebanon as examples of what Israeli ground troops may face in Gaza.

"In Southern Lebanon, we saw the use of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) that disabled several Merkava tanks and killed the soldiers inside," Shenker said in a phone interview with FOXNews.com.

"In Lebanon, we confirmed the use of the Kornet anti-tank system," Shenker said, referring to a series of Russian manufactured wire-guided missile systems. When U.S. forces invaded Iraq in 2003, the relatively small and easy to use Kornet anti-tank system reportedly disabled several American tanks, though Russia denied having sold the armor-piercing weapons to Iraq.

In Lebanon, between 46 and 50 Merkava main battle tanks (of the 400 deployed) were hit by anti-tank weapons, according to Western sources. In this case, too, Russia denied selling arms to either Syria or Hezbollah.

The weapons systems flowed into Lebanon more easily than they can in Gaza, where the borders are under stricter surveillance. But a network of underground tunnels used for smuggling has military analysts questioning exactly what weapons the militants in Gaza may possess.

Hamas lacks air, sea and armor assets, so it has little hope of successfully challenging Israeli forces on an open battlefield. But a modern military's overwhelming advantage dwindles quickly in an urban environment.

Hamas, Schenker said, has claimed possession of American-manufactured weapons the State Department gave to its political rival, Fatah. The weapons, intended to help bolster the precarious security situation of the Fatah government, now could be used to fight the Israeli military.

Al Aqsa Television has broadcast footage of Hamas gunmen brandishing American assault rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, rocket launchers and ammunition the U.S. reportedly provided to Fatah. The captured weaponry is said to include 7,400 American M-16 assault rifles and 800,000 rounds of bullets.

Both the rocket-propelled grenades (RPG) and M-16s would enable Hamas fighters to aim and hit a target from a broader distance, but the danger for the Israelis increases as its fighters draw closer.

Israeli soldiers have the advantage of specific urban operations training, a modern communications system, personal weapons like night vision goggles (NVGs) and the Israeli designed Tavor, a highly accurate automatic assault rifle conceived specifically with close-quarter combat in mind.

The Israelis also possess a variety of hand-grenades and explosives to breech obstacles and eliminate the enemy, but they must be mindful of civilian casualties. For this reason, Israeli soldiers may need to use flash/stun grenades that produce an intense burst of light and a piercing noise, instead of simply relying on heavy firepower to destroy any dwelling.

RUJUK PADA AL QURAN TENTANG KAUM BANI ISRAEL

Dedikasi buat Tun Dr Mahathir yang sudah mula lupa! Bukankah suatu ketika dahulu ketika Tun menjawat kerusi Menteri Perdana Tun berkeras mahu menggunakan logik akal dan membelakangkan wahyu bahawa harus berdakwah dan berbaik-baik dengan Yahudi laknatullah. Tun mula mengorak langkah silap dengan menghantar Tunku Imran anak Yamtuan Negeri Sembilan pada ketika itu untuk menjalin persahabatan dengan regime Israel melalui perlawanan kriket dengan pasukan Yahudi.

Natijahnya beratus ahli PAS "berperang" dengan FRU di padang kriket Universiti Malaya dan seterusnya dikenakan hukuman denda kerana berdemonstrasi. Masih ingatkah Tun anggota FRU masuk masjid Ar Rahman Universiti Malaya dengan kasut-kasut mereka untuk menangkap ahli PAS yang bertempiaran lari dari pancutan air asid FRU.

Banyak lagi insiden yang membuktikan Tun adalah Pro Israel ketika itu.

Kini pelbagai barangan masuk ke pelabuhan kita dari Israel menggunakan syarikat proksi dan jika kita teliti logo di kontena yang dipunggah dari kapal-kapal berkenaan adalah dari Israel. Sila lihat posting MULAKAN BOIKOT BARANGAN YAHUDI DI DEPAN MATA.


Mulakan boikot sekarang. Bukan cakap politik sahaja. Gerakkan semua kementerian dan jabatan Kerajaan yang berkenaan. Siasat mana-mana agensi yang berurusan dengan Israel atau proksinya. OIC dan NAM jangan jadi tunggul dan tidur. Desak kedutaan Arab di Malaysia untuk berbuat sesuatu yang positif sebelum terlambat. Adakah kita ingin melihat Israel meluaskan lagi jajahannnya sperti selepas perang tahun 1967. Jangan jadi seperti regim Arab yang terang-terang bersekongkol dengan USA dan Israel. Tunggulah saat kehancuran buat mereka. "Sesungguhnya ALlah tidak mungkir janji".

Hentikan hubungan dagangan dengan Israel: Dr Mahathir

Sinar Harian
PUTRAJAYA - Bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed semalam menggesa negara yang mempunyai hubungan dagangan dengan Amerika Syarikat (AS) supaya menghentikannya kerana ia akan meningkatkan lagi serangan Israel ke atas penduduk tidak berdosa Palestin.

Beliau berkata, selain tindakan menghentikan hubungan dagangan, negara berkenaan juga perlu sepakat untuk menyelar sikap AS yang secara terang menyokong perbuatan Israel menceroboh Gaza.

“Kita perlu hentikan segera (hubungan dagangan). Jika tidak mereka (Amerika dan Israel) semakin kuat menyerang Palestin.

“Inilah cara terbaik kita lakukan ke atas Amerika kerana mereka jelas memberi sokongan dengan tindakan Israel membunuh rakyat Palestin yang tidak berdosa,” katanya pada sidang media di Yayasan Kepimpinan Perdana di sini, semalam.

Dr Mahathir turut menyifatkan serangan ke atas Palestin menerusi laut, udara dan darat sejak seminggu lalu itu sebagai peperangan moden kerana melibatkan pembunuhan orang awam yang tidak berdosa.

Mengenai sama ada Malaysia mampu bertahan hubungan dengan Amerika, beliau berkata, setiap perbuatan baik ada harganya.

“Saya yakin negara mampu berdaya saing maju tanpa bergantung pada Amerika. Lagipun, ketika ini ekonomi Malaysia adalah lebih pelbagai,” katanya.

Ditanya wartawan, mengapa kebanyakan badan hanya mendiamkan diri ketika Israel menyerang Gaza, beliau berkata, organisasi itu diterajui oleh Amerika dan Britain.

Menurutnya, apa yang berlaku itu membuktikan wujud ketidakadilan dunia terhadap Israel.

“Pada saya, Amerika dan Britain adalah dalang yang mencetuskan peperangan di bandar Gaza sehingga kehilangan banyak nyawa dan negara Palestin semakin musnah. Ini satu perkara yang tidak baik.

“Kita patut boikot barangan mereka. Kita jangan beli peralatan perang daripada Amerika. Kita ada pilihan lain, kita boleh beli senjata daripada Rusia,” katanya.

Dr Mahathir berkata, peperangan zaman moden yang berlaku itu bukan alternatif untuk memusnahkan sesebuah negara, sebaliknya hendak menghapuskan umat Islam.

Ditanya kenapa beliau mengadakan sidang akhbar, katanya, beliau perlu membuat sesuatu dan bercakap sesuatu seperti mengharapkan Amerika perlu berhenti menyokong Israel.

“Jangan salahkan Israel, salahkan Amerika Syarikat dan Britain sebab mereka yang mencipta keadaan di sana (Gaza),” katanya.

Dr M calls for boycott of all that is US

Maria J.Dass/ sun2surf

PUTRAJAYA (Jan 5, 2009) : Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed has again asked countries who oppose the invasion of Gaza to boycott the greenback as a protest against US' support for Israel’s invasion.


Tun Mahathir gestures as he speaks at the Perdana Leadership foundation. He also lauded Malaysia's move to initiate the convening of the UN General Assembly to find a solution to the matter as the assembly can override the decision of the security council.

Blaming the US and Britain for backing the invasion he said: "The dollar is only being used because people accept the greenback as legal tender and if they stop, then the US cannot trade, cannot make money, they will become poor and this will stop them from producing more and more weapons."

"People who keep all their money in the US are actually responsible for the manufacturing of weapons which are used to kill people. That's what their money is being used for," said Mahathir, adding America was a bankrupt country with no money or no reserves, so anyone can go against it if they wanted to.

Mahathir also said while it may be difficult for governments to move, individuals can do their part by boycotting US products. "Governments cannot force people to drink Coca Cola, and you won’t die because you did not drink any Coca Cola," he cited as an example.

Asked if this would affect Malaysia since the US is its largest trading partner, Mahathir said: "There will be a price to pay to do something good, but if you slowly whittle down involvement with the US, then slowly we will get used to it."

Mahathir also said: "This is not a religious war. There are many places where the Jews have been living with Muslims for years. "There is no animosity towards the local Jews in these places, so this war is not religious but territorial ."

Mahathir said: "The US who is the 'policeman of the world' has given its full backing to the invasion. No candidate in America can afford to say they don’t support the Jews.

"US president-elect Barack Obama’s deputy (Joe Biden) gave an interview saying I’m not a Jew but I’m a Zionist so you can expect the new administration's stand on this. I don’t think that anyone can be as bad as (George) Bush, so I think that it’s the best of a bad choice," he said when asked if Obama can make a change.

SATANIC VERSES , FILMS AND JIHAD CONFERENCE IN JURUSALEM

An international conference on jihad that took place in Jerusalem on 14th December 2008 highlighted what hawkish scholars on Islam described as "real disputes" about the nature of the problem. The event also inspired the controversial Dutch legislator Geert Wilders to plan a European follow-up in the coming months.

"It's time for such an event in the Netherlands," the far-right Wilders said on the terrace of Jerusalem's Begin Center, where the event was held. "But the cost of security would be much higher in Holland than in Israel."

Wilders - the only one of the six speakers to receive a standing ovation from the 600 people in the audience - told his listeners that "as the terrorist attacks in Mumbai proved, there's no moderate Islam," and it is time for the West to realize it is "in a conflict with the Muslim faith at large." He sided with scholars like Haifa University's David Bukay, who averred that "moderate Islam" does not exist and that the Koran could not be reformed or modernized.

But American scholar and activist Daniel Pipes disagreed. Quoting Egyptian philosopher Hassan Hanafi, Pipes said the Koran "is like a supermarket where one takes what one wants and leaves the rest." This freedom of selection, he argued, provides a means for reshaping Islam.




Speech Geert Wilders
Jerusalem
December 14, 2008

Thank you very much.

It's a privilege for me to be here in this beautiful city Jerusalem, the capitol of the only democracy in the entire Middle East. When I was a teenager I lived some years here in this city and after that I visited Israel more times than I can count. Israel: the only country in the region with a functioning parliament, a rule of law and free elections. The only country in the region that shares the values of our Western societies, in fact is one of the foundations of our Judeo-Christian identity.

We are here to voice our concern over the growing Islamisation of the West. We do this in this city, the city of David. The city that, together with Rome and Athens, symbolizes our ancient heritage.

Perhaps a few of you may be new to Jerusalem, yet, Jerusalem is not new to any of you. We all carry Jerusalem in our blood, in our genes. We all live and breathe Jerusalem. We talk Jerusalem, we dream Jerusalem. Simply because, the values of ancient Israel have become the values of the West. We are all Israel, and Israel is in all of us.

This city is the capital of a democracy under threat. Israel is under siege, like the Jewish community in the Land of Israel is under siege for over a century now. Israel with all its glory and splendour is unique, and its history unparalleled. Yet, Israel’s security situation is not unique, and neither is its enemy.

Samuel Huntington writes it so aptly: “Islam has bloody borders”. Israel is located precisely on that border. This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, just like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines, Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan, Lebanon, and Aceh in Indonesia. Israel is simply in the way of the Islamic advance. Just like West-Berlin was during the Cold War.

Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism would have found other places to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Therefore, the war against Israel is not a war against Israel. It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Thanks to Israeli parents who see their children go off to join the army and lie awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and have pleasant dreams, unaware of the dangers looming.

At present the front-line of jihad runs not just through the streets of Tel Aviv and Haifa, but through the streets of London, Madrid, and Amsterdam as well. Jihad is our common enemy, and we better start Facing Jihad before it is too late.

Therefore, if we voice our concern over the Islamisation of the West, we have to do it here, where our civilization borders on Islam. Where jihadists fire Qassams into civilian homes in Sderot and Ashkelon, and where a doctor like Aryeh Eldad is characteristic of our civilization by treating terrorists the same way as he treats the Israeli victims. I salute Professor Eldad for his work for humanity, and for his patriotism. And I thank him for hosting this conference in this great city. Aryeh I am proud to be your friend. I will say a few things about the Islamisation of Europe and my film Fitna. I will use some examples from the Netherlands, because they are indicative for the situation on the continent.

The mass migration to the Netherlands continues full-speed ahead. Currently, a staggering number of new immigrants arrive every year, many of them Muslim, often uneducated, if not illiterate. Bringing along with them the local customs of the mountains and deserts of backward Islamic countries. Thousands and thousands of Muslims arrive in the Netherlands every year, while already one million Muslims are living in our tiny country.

There are many problems concerning this massive influx: immigrants are overly represented in social benefits and crime statistics and the overall costs are staggering. The financial costs of mass immigration in the Netherlands exceeds 100 billion euro’s.

But what we have to fear most is the creeping Islamisation, the stealth jihad. Because every Islamic neighbourhood, every Islamic shop, every mosque, every Islamic school, every burqa, every veil is regarded by many Muslims as building blocks towards a larger goal, towards domination.

This is in fact the essence of the problem. Not crime, not even the financial burden. The biggest problem is the demographic development, and the way it influences our society at large. Immigration from Muslim countries and the demographics will result in the Eurabia that the brave Bat Ye'or is warning about. It will become reality if we don't act now. A decade and a half ago, a then unknown American politician used the following slogan in his political campaign: “it’s the economy, stupid.” From now on the motto of my party will be: “it’s demographics, dumbo”.

More than forty years ago a British politician gave a famous speech. He stated that, looking into the future, he saw ‘rivers of blood’ as a result of the uncontrolled influx of immigrants. Enoch Powell’s speech was the starting point of a debate on mass immigration in Europe. As usual, the leftist establishment labeled him an extremist and his career went down. But the British people loved him, and supported Powell. London’s dock workers took him to their hearts, marching by the thousands in support of Mr. Powell.

Looking back, I share Enoch Powell’s alarmist views on mass immigration, but ‘rivers of blood’ is not something I see happening. We will not face civil war. Our political elite is trying to make us believe that the influx of Muslim immigrants is similar to the waves of immigration that took place centuries ago. Or they say that “Christianity developed towards modernity, and therefore Islam will do the same”. How are we to remain a democracy if a large part of the growing Muslim population is in favour of introducing sharia law? How is Amsterdam to remain the gay capitol of Europe if gays are regularly beaten up by non western immigrants, often Muslims? How are the Jewish communities of Europe to survive with a growing presence of an ideology that is so blatantly anti-Semitic? How are we to remain a centre of cultural and scientific excellence if Islam opposes art, and academic exploration? How are we to remain an open and tolerant society if we are faced with part of the Muslim community favouring self-segregation and showing no desire for assimilation? How can we look to the future with confidence, when a large part of the population turns to a seventh century desert for answers?

These are the questions the multiculturalists don’t want to answer.

Instead of providing leadership our political elite fooled us by using our own principles against us. I will give you five examples.

First. Our tolerance is used as an argument to bring in more Islam, to bring in more Muslims, and a way to tell us that we should not criticize their Islamic culture, if you do you are labeled intolerant and racist.

Second. Democracy. A growing Muslim electorate is too hard for politicians to resist, so they give in to their grievances and demands to win their vote. Before long sharia law will be introduced, legally and democratically, by means of majority vote. The former Dutch Minister of Justice once said that sharia law could be part of the Dutch legal system if a two third majority of the population would be in favour of it.

Third. Our religious freedom is utilized by an ideology that has no plans whatsoever to play by our rules, yet demands the same rights our traditional religions have had for centuries;

Fourth. Our welfare state that once was the envy of the world, now functions as a magnet for a lot of non-Western immigrants, dreaming of a cushy life in wealthy Europe.

Fifth. Our open borders came to symbolize our open mindset, an example of our cosmopolitan hospitality. But now we have lost control of our borders and we can’t even keep track of who is entering our countries, let alone prevent them from entering.

Our Western principles are hollow if they are not accompanied by a desire to sustain our culture and our civilization, based upon knowing who we are and where we come from. We are not from Saudi-Arabia. We are not from Iran. We come from Rome, Athens and Jerusalem. That makes our civilization special, and certainly worth preserving.

In spite of all that, the political elite are still madly in love with their pet project, the multicultural society, as they call it romantically. Apparently they don’t live in the neighbourhoods that are turning Islamic. They will tell you “they are nice people. I don’t see the problem?” The Muslim immigrant’s demands sound reasonably to them, like: “let us have an extra-large mosque”.

It is very difficult to remain optimistic in the face of the growing Islamisation of Europe. The tide is turning against us. We are losing on every front. Regarding the demographics, Islam is gaining momentum. The ruling elite is even proud of the Muslim immigration. After all, this way they can show everyone that they are not racists. Academia, the arts, the media, trade unions, the churches, the business world, the entire political establishment have all converted to the suicidal theory of multiculturalism and cultural relativism.

Cultural relativism is the biggest disease modern day Europe suffers from. Not all cultures are equal. Our Western culture is better than the Islamic culture. In the words of the brave Dr. Wafa Sultan: “It is a clash between civilization and backwardness, between the civilized and the primitive, between barbarity and rationality”. Indeed also here in Israel you are not fighting a territorial war, it's not about territory it's about ideology. The Islamic ideology does not seek cooperation or assimilation but aims for submission and dominance over non-Muslims. There is no moderate Islam, there will never be a moderate Islam. There might be moderate people who call themselves Muslim, but there is no moderate Islam.

Leftist journalists and leftist politicians hasten themselves to label anyone critical of the Islamisation a ‘right-wing extremist’. The entire establishment has sided with Islam. Leftists, liberals, and Christian-Democrats are now enslaved to Islam. They are Dhimmi’s. Lenin once labelled ignorant people that unknowingly aided his cause ‘useful idiots’. Well, the West is now full of these ‘useful idiots’, and they are even proud of it.

Now some words about my film Fitna.

I felt I had the moral duty to educate people about Islam and the Islamisation of Europe. The duty to make clear to everyone that the Koran stands at the heart of what some people call terrorism but is in reality jihad. I wanted to show that the problems of Islam are at the core of Islam, and do not belong to its fringes.

I have warned against the dangers of the Koran and Islam in numerous interviews, opinion articles, speeches and of course parliamentary debates, but pictures often say more than words. That is why I made Fitna.

Fitna is a documentary that shows what is being done in the name of Islam. Without placing all Muslims into the same category, I think I have succeeded in showing that the Koran is not some dusty old book, but that it is still used today as a source of inspiration for, and justification of hatred, violence and terrorism across the world.

A few weeks ago the world has once again seen what Islam is capable of. In Mumbai, jihadists separated Muslims from non-Muslims, according to a witness in a Belgian newspaper. The non-Muslims, the Kaffirs, were subsequently shot. The terrorists also went straight for the tiny Jewish centre in Mumbai, where, according to reports made to an Indian news website, they horribly tortured Jewish people before brutally murdering them.

Most of the Western media stick to naming the culprits as being members of ‘separatist movements’. In doing so, they are missing the main point and are unjustly ignoring the Islamic nature of the terror attacks. After all, if it is a conflict about borders, why are they killing Jews in Mumbai? Why, in a city of tens of millions, find the jihadists the shortest way to the only rabbi in town – in order to kill him and his wife? Why are Israel’s enemies always shouting “Allah hoe-Akbar” and “kill the Jews” if all they want is peaceful coexistence and mutual understanding? Maybe, I’m just guessing, is it because they have an ideology that tells them to kill Jews, to kill unbelievers, and to advance Islam until there is world domination. Islam, after all divides the world in a dar-al-Harb, and dar-al-Islam. Islam is a totalitarian ideology full of hate, violence and submission.

From the day the plan for my short film was made public it caused quite a stir, in the Netherlands, in Europe and across the world. First there was a political uproar, with government leaders across the continent in sheer panic. The Dutch Minister for Foreign Affairs called on me to abandon my film project. The Minister of Justice let it be known that post hoc criminal proceedings could be initiated if the movie was shown. The Dutch government investigated the possibility of having Fitna banned in advance. The Dutch branch of the Islamic organization Hizb ut-Tahrir declared that the Netherlands was due for an attack. Internationally there was a series of incidents. The Taliban threatened to organize additional attacks against Dutch troops in Afghanistan and a website linked to Al Qaeda published the message that I ought to be killed, while the Grand Mufti of Syria stated that I would be responsible for all the bloodshed after the screening of the film.

In Afghanistan and Pakistan the Dutch flag was burned on several occasions. Dolls representing me were burned as well. The Indonesian President announced that I will never be admitted into Indonesia again, while the UN Secretary General and the European Union issued statements in the same cowardly vein as those by the Dutch government. I could go on and on. It was an absolute disgrace, a sell out. It was treason to our Western principles, it was treason to freedom of speech, it was treason to liberty itself. My own government was not defending me, but became my worst enemy in the process.

Because of Fitna the State of Jordan is currently litigating against me. Jordan wants to prosecute me for blasphemy, demeaning Islam and slandering the Prophet Muhammad; violations of the Jordanian Penal Code, even though the alleged violations did not even occur in Jordan. As you all know, Jordan is a non-democratic country, without an independent or impartial judicial system and without a strongly developed civil society. According to a recent study by Human Rights Watch, torture is a routine and widespread practice in Jordan.

Jordan’s attempt to prosecute me is an infringement on the sovereignty of my country, the Netherlands. It is an infringement on freedom of speech. Jordan’s attempt is in fact a hostile act towards freedom itself.

If Jordan succeeds in prosecuting a democratically elected member of a Western parliament, what kind of precedent would that set? But its not about me. The principle is not Geert Wilders. If you look at the press and the rest of the political elite in the Netherlands, nobody cared. Nobody gived a damn. This was the worst thing. A nondemocratic country like Jordan cannot use the international or domestic legal system to silence anyone. If this starts, if we allow this, we can get rid of all parliaments, and we should close down every newspaper, and we should shut up and all pray to Mecca five times a day.

But there is some hope. For instance there is some hope with the middle class workers. Underneath the empty bravado of the elite, the middle class worker, the average Joe, is starting to realise that there is something terribly wrong with Islam. In the Netherlands, sixty percent of the population considers mass immigration to be the worst mistake since the second world war. And an equal sixty percent sees Islam as the number one threat to our national identity. But the Freedom Party is the only political party in the Dutch parliament that shares their view.

And there is hope that political parties critical about the Islamisation of the West are gaining momentum all over Europe, are getting stronger. And we will work together with common legislation, with common initiatives, perhaps even with a common group in the European parliament as defenders of the West, defenders of our culture, defenders of our identity, defenders of our freedom.

We need a new way of thinking, a new paradigm, to defend our liberties. Just reiterating our devotion to tolerance and democracy is not good enough, as we are Facing Jihad. We need a new set of goals and ideas. We need new leaders. And we should always remember where we come from. We all come from Jerusalem.

Let me wind up. The essence of my short speech today is that Europe is in the process of Islamisation, and that we need to fight it. Because if we don’t fight the Islamization we will lose everything; our cultural identity, our democracy, our rule of law, our liberties, our freedom. We have the duty to defend the ideas of Rome, Athens and Jerusalem. The ancient heritage of our forefathers is under attack; we have to stand up and defend it.

A century and a half ago, on the other side of the world, a young President said exactly what I mean. This is what Abraham Lincoln said in 1862, and I leave you with that: The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise — with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country. (Abraham Lincoln, Annual Message to Congress, December 1, 1862)

It is five to twelve. Freedom must win, we have to win and we will win.
