IRELAND: Does 'Protocol 20' sound familiar?

How much coincidence can intelligence reasonably bear?

Read below and ask yourself......Is it not clear that Ireland's 'venal ministers' (verse 33) have sacrificed their country on an altar of destruction?

Is it not also clear that this is the fate intended for all nations in order to bring us under the absolute control of some single authority?

You can guess the nature of that 'authority' for yourself.

Here are some extracts from just one chapter of 'the Protocols of Zion'.

UK banks borrowed more than $1 trillion from US Federal Reserve

British banks borrowed more than $1 trillion (£640bn) from the Federal Reserve during the financial crisis, led by Barclays following its swoop on the US business of Lehman Brothers.

The disclosures came because the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act forced the Fed to reveal which banks and companies it lent money to in an effort to shore up the financial system from the end of December 2007 onwards.

Economic Hitmen Strike Again: Spain Planning to Privatize Airports

MADRID -(Dow Jones)- The Spanish government plans to privatize the country's top two airports, as part of a series of measures seeking to jumpstart anemic economic growth, Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said Wednesday.

Zapatero told legislators in Parliament that Madrid's Barajas and Barcelona's El Prat airports will be run by private operators under a licensing, or concession system. Both airports have been recently remodeled and expanded to absorb increased passenger traffic in coming years.

THE UNITED STATES HAS LONG SUPPORTED BRUTAL REGIMES AROUND THE WORLD: PROF. ROBERT JENSEN

There is nothing unusual about the U.S. government backing nations that engage in crimes and abuses of power; the United States has long supported corrupt and brutal regimes around the world. U.S. policymakers don’t make decisions based on humanitarian grounds. They want to extend and deepen, or at least maintain U.S. power, and those policymakers believe Israel is useful in that regard......Prof. Robert Jensen

Kiruna, Northern Sweden: The Town That Moved

Kiruna: The Town That Moved

This January, Sweden's northernmost town of Kiruna, 145 kilometres (90 USA Miles) into the Artic Circle has decided to move itself 4km in order to save itself from sinking into cracks created by the worlds largest iron ore mine. Kiruna grew thanks to the mine but the industry that created the town threatened to eventually consume it.

Most houses in the affected area will be loaded onto large trailers and driven to a new location nearby.
Moving the city hall, however, may require more effort.

ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI : WHO IS REALLY LEAKING TO WIKILEAKS?

Judy Woodruff speaks to former national security advisers Zbigniew Brzezinski and Stephen Hadley about the impact of the release of confidential diplomatic documents by WikiLeaks.

Zbigniew Brzezinski doesn’t think all the leaked information coming out of Wikileaks is a result of Army PFC Bradley Manning, as a matter of fact he suspects a foreign intelligence service may be providing the more embarrassing leaks.

Europe Falls Toward Enlightenment?

Conclusion: Is history in fact repeating itself? Is it retracing, in a sense, the events to which the Gutenberg press seems to have given rise: the Renaissance, the Reformation and even the populating of the New World? In Iceland, they are writing that tortured country's first constitution; we have a feeling it will be far more radical than the one the EU tried (and failed) to pass. In Britain, Ireland and Greece, students and union workers take to the streets to show their dissatisfaction with the "austerity" that the Euro-elites are trying with increasing desperation to establish. In the dank bowels of the EU parliament itself, UK's UKIP leader Nigel Farage – a dapper man now quite recovered from his unfortunate, private plane crash – rises and speaks to the assembled Eurocrats:

THOUGHTS ON GERMANY AND PALESTINE

In visiting Germany one cannot help but reflect on history. The thoughts are transported to periods before I was born, periods in history and facts I have read and verified and contrast it with myths that are taught daily to unsuspecting publics. Germany lives in the modern presence but the mist of a heavy and dark past moves all around sometimes getting thick and blurring visions. Some people pump such smoke trying to convince Germans and themselves that this is that mist emanating from a relevant past. We think and speak of how best to explain to Germans that guilt feelings are misdirected. How do we explain the Nazi-Zionist collaborations and the horrors that happened because of a misunderstanding of what really happened nearly seven decades ago (2).

IMF and EU Hammer Ireland: "We're all Screwed"

This is nothing but extortion. If Ireland wants to put its banks on solid footing, there's a way to do it that doesn't involve years of debt-slavery for its people. The government can underwrite the banks with a €10 billion loan from the Pension Reserve Fund that will guarantee deposits while the banks are nationalized and restructured. It is an excruciating process, but it's been done many times before. Ireland does not have to accept indentured servitude if it chooses not to.

And why would the government even consider paying an interest rate of 5.8% per annum? Interest rates should be the same as they are for the banks; 1 percent. Should a sovereign nation get a worse interest rate than a crooked banker who ripped off millions of investors?

Belgium's survival at stake

Belgium's political drama has largely sailed under investor radar screens. But this fractious country of 10.8 million known for its Flemish painters, waffles, French fries and beer, potentially faces a profound political crisis that could see an end to the unified state, something which has substantial implications for the management of its debt. It tends to be forgotten, but Belgium has one of the higher levels of debt to gross domestic product in the EU with French banks having the largest exposure.

Why is Greenland so rich these days? It said goodbye to the EU

If you think that leaving the EU would be catastrophic, take a look at Greenland. By rights its people ought to be poor. Their island is isolated, suffers from freezing weather, has a workforce of only 28,000 and relies on fish for 82 per cent of its exports. But it turns out that since leaving the EU, Greenland has been so freed of EU red tape and of the destruction of the Common Fisheries Policy, that the average income of the islanders today is higher than those living in Britain, Germany and France.

Portugal reaching critical point as leading economist 'Dr Doom' claims country is increasingly likely to need bailout

Portugal is increasingly likely to need an international bailout like Ireland, it was claimed today.

U.S. economist Nouriel Roubini won notoriety for warning of an impending credit crisis before 2007.

And today, in an interview in the Portuguese business daily Diario Economico, Roubini, othwerwise known as Dr Doom, said the country was reaching ‘critical point’.

He said both Ireland and Greece at first insisted that they needed no international bailout but finally as market conditions worsened were forced to turn to the European Union and the International Monetary Fund.

Although no one anywhere has yet dared to openly say it, Germany must now contemplate doing for the whole of the EU what it did for its own volk in East Germany over 20 years ago or watch its strategic investment in, and the very fabric of, the postwar order of Europe collapse with a bang, and in hideous acrimony.

Michael's solem declaration - that WW-III between China and the US has already begun in the Yellow Sea - may need to be retracted. For WW-III may yet start not in Korea but rather where both WW-I and WW-II did.

If Ireland Doesn’t Take The Bailout . . .

So a week ago as I write this, the Irish formally asked for a bailout from the European Union, acting in concert with the International Monetary Fund and the British government.

And now, a week after that request, the EU finance ministers just approved the bailout of the Republic of Ireland—

—however . . . However, in those seven days in between, a serious shitstorm broke out in Ireland—it has been one hell of a week, over there in the Emerald Isle.

And though the bailout has been approved by the EU finance drones, we still do not have an approval from the most important player of them all:

The Irish people.

HOW 250,000 US EMBASSY CABLES WERE LEAKED

An innocuous-looking memory stick, no longer than a couple of fingernails, came into the hands of a Guardian reporter earlier this year. The device is so small it will hang easily on a keyring. But its contents will send shockwaves through the world’s chancelleries and deliver what one official described as “an epic blow” to US diplomacy. The 1.6 gigabytes of text files on the memory stick ran to millions of words: the contents of more than 250,000 leaked state department cables, sent from, or to, US embassies around the world.

The Luck of the Irish Runs Out

The Irish government announced plans this week to tap the welfare state and working class for much of the $20B in savings they've pledged to find over the next four years, but the austerity measures will not touch large businesses like Microsoft, Intel, Google, HP, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Pfizer, which created jobs and fueled exports in Ireland after being lured by low corporate tax rates.

How secure is your cash in Irish banks

The economic crisis in Ireland is causing near-panic among the 2.3 million British savers who have billions of pounds on deposit in bonds and accounts with the country's banks. Protection schemes are in place, but concerns are growing over whether the Irish scheme would have sufficient cash to pay out in the event of a bank default.

Even if it does, some experts believe savers should not be taking risks, especially if better rates can be found elsewhere with traditional British banks and building societies.

It now looks likely Bank of Ireland and Allied Irish Bank will be part or fully nationalised. Anglo Irish was nationalised in September after its collapse. It is expected Allied will be fully nationalised with Dublin taking an 85 per cent stake in Bank of Ireland. This should mean a default is unlikely but the guarantee is only as strong as the Irish government itself.
With fears that the crisis may spread to Portugal and even Spain, savers in other foreign-owned banks are being urged to consider moving their money to safer organisation

Protesters hit Italian streets a 2nd day

Students and teachers opposed to government reforms took to the streets for a second day Thursday, staging protests in cities across Italy, authorities said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The so-called "Clash of civilizations" is really a clash of banking systems, with the private central bank model attempting to impose itself on the rest of the world as it already did the United States and Eurozone. The bankers figured this would be easy since they were able to fool the public into helping them try to force Germany back into using the imposed central banking system of the Wiemar Republic.

Of course, it took a World War for the bankers to succeed in getting Germany off a state-issued currency. But then no number of other peoples' lives are too great a price to pay to ensure a cascade of debt created with nothing more costly than ink and paper. Apparently, the bankers are ready to play that same dirty trick again, this time against China.

However, while the media might have succeeded in concealing the true reasons for WW2 and the assassinations of Presidents Lincoln and Kennedy from the American people, the situation is decidedly different today. Time makes ancient truth uncouth, and it will be impossible for the bankers to talk the planet into a new world war to force the private central bank model on the rest of the world, when the people of the US and Eurozone understand clearly that it is that very same private central bank model that has impoverished the general population to enrich themselves; that is it that same predatory private central bank model that is the enemy of all the people of the world!

In daring greatly to bring about a global government to enforce a global private bank, it appears they may have triggered a truly global revolution against all private banks!

Iceland Is No Ireland as State Free of Bank Debt, Grimsson Says

Iceland’s President Olafur R. Grimsson said his country is better off than Ireland thanks to the government’s decision to allow the banks to fail two years ago and because the krona could be devalued.

“The difference is that in Iceland we allowed the banks to fail,” Grimsson said in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s Mark Barton today. “These were private banks and we didn’t pump money into them in order to keep them going; the state did not shoulder the responsibility of the failed private banks.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

German Source: The Karlsruhe Court Decision Is a Ticking Time Bomb

A well-informed and reliable source told EIR yesterday, that the European Financial Stabilization Facility (EFSF) in Luxembourg is presently working intensely to raise funds on the financial markets using the state guarantee, which according to him is legally questionable. The head of the EFSF, Klaus Regling, also is using the interest differential among countries, which would be cynical, to say the least.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Euro, like the Dollar, is a debt-based currency printed up by the central bank and loaned to the people for use at interest. As long as larger pools of borrowers can be found, the Euro, like the Dollar, can perpetuate along, transferring the accumulating debt onto future generations. But when a generation is reached unable or unwilling to pay that accumulated debt, the whole pyramid collapses. which is what has happened here. The downfall of the push for a global economy is that the bankers created a global depression. More globalism will not repair the damage.

Article 2: All government salaries permanently tied to lowest Icelandic wage.

So with some trepidation, let me point out that Portugal will have a current account deficit of 10.3pc of GDP this year, 8.8pc in 2011, and 8.0pc in 2012, according to the OECD. That is to say, Portugal will be unable to pay its way in the world by a huge margin even after draconian austerity.

ROBERT FISK: AN AMERICAN BRIBE THAT STINKS OF APPEASEMENT

Three billion dollars for three months is one billion dollars a month to stop Israel's colonisation. That's half a billion dollars a fortnight. That's $500m a week. That's $71,428,571 a day, or $2,976,190 an hour, or $49,603 a minute. And as well as this pot of gold, Washington will continue to veto any resolutions critical of Israel in the UN and prevent "Palestine" from declaring itself a state. It's worth invading anyone to get that much cash to stage a military withdrawal, let alone the gracious gesture of not building more illegal colonies for only 90 days while furiously continuing illegal construction in Jerusalem at the same time.

IMF's Dominique Strauss-Kahn wants fiscal and reform powers given to Europe

A federal Europe, with more sovereign power ceded to the centre, is the best defence against any future crisis, the head of the International Monetary Fund has declared.

Philip Aldrick
Telegraph

Warning that "the sovereign crisis is not over", Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the IMF managing director and a likely French presidential candidate, called on the European Union to move responsibility for fiscal discipline and structural reform to a central body that is free from the influences of member states.

NATO missile shield must not be aimed at Iran: Turkey

ANKARA — A planned Europe-wide ballistic missile shield for NATO must not be aimed at Iran and there appears to be agreement on this point, Turkish President Abdullah Gul said Friday before leaving to attend the NATO summit in Lisbon.

"We are categorically opposed to have a country named (as a threat) and our request appears to have been accepted," he told reporters before leaving Ankara.

"Turkey cannot join a project that is aimed at a specific country," Gul said, stressing that NATO was a defensive alliance aimed at defending its members against any ballistic threat and is not an organization designed "to intimidate and threaten."

Greek rescue frays as Irish crisis drags on

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/economics/8138739/Greek-rescue-fray...

The eurozone bail-out for Greece has begun to unravel after Austria suspended aid contributions over failure to comply with the rescue terms, and Germany warned Athens that its patience was running out.

The clash caught markets off-guard and heightened fears that Europe's debt crisis may be escalating, with deep confusion over the Irish crisis as Dublin continues to resist EU pressure to request its own rescue.

Olli Rehn, the EU economics commissioner, said escalating rhetoric in Europe was turning dangerous. "I want to call on every responsible European to resist the centrifugal tendencies and existential alarmism."

The horrible truth starts to dawn on Europe's leaders

http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/finance/ambroseevans-pritchard/100008667/...

The entire European Project is now at risk of disintegration, with strategic and economic consequences that are very hard to predict.

In a speech this morning, EU President Herman Van Rompuy (poet, and writer of Japanese and Latin verse) warned that if Europe’s leaders mishandle the current crisis and allow the eurozone to break up, they will destroy the European Union itself.

“We’re in a survival crisis. We all have to work together in order to survive with the euro zone, because if we don’t survive with the euro zone we will not survive with the European Union,” he said.

Europe stumbles blindly towards its 1931 moment

Unless the ECB takes fast and dramatic action, it risks destroying the currency it is paid to manage, and allowing a political catastrophe to unfold in Europe.

If mishandled, Ireland could all too easily become a sovereign version of Credit Anstalt - the Austrian bank that brought down the central European financial system in 1931, sent tremors through London and New York, and set off the second deeper phase of the Great Depression, the phase when politics turned ugly.

Is Europe Coming Apart Faster Than Anticipated?

The sky is black with PIIGS coming home to roost: I was going to write my customary long and boring think piece—but the simmering crisis in the Eurozone just got the heat turned up: Things are boiling over there!

So let’s take a break from our regularly scheduled programming, and give you a run-down of this late-breaking news:

The bond markets have no faith in Ireland—Greece has been shown up as having lied again about its atrocious fiscal situation—and now Portugal is teetering—

—in other words, the PIIGS are screwed. I would venture to guess that we are about to see this slow-boiling European crisis bubble over into a full blown meltdown over the next few days—and it’s going to get messy.

EU says survival at risk as ministers face Irish crisis

The European Union raised the stakes over the Irish debt crisis on Tuesday, saying the future of the eurozone and EU are at risk as ministers head for talks on an increasingly probable rescue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Probable Rescue" = Sink the European pe3ople further into debt-slavery!

The central bank system is designed to fail. It is, as I have said before, a boat with ten holes and only five corks, and the only thing the leaders of the nations enslaved by such a system can do is yank a cork from one hole and pound it into another in front of the press cameras while proclaiming they are doing something about the problem.

This is not rocket science, and I wonder why the people of the world cannot see the simplicity of the trap or the ease of the final solution.

The global economy is a boat with ten holes in the bottom and only 5 corks, and all the world's leaders can do is yank out a cork and pound it into a different hole in front of the press cameras and insist they are doing something about the problem!

GORDON DUFF: DEAR GERALDO RIVERA, 9/11 MURDER IS NOT A JOKE

BUILDINGWHAT.ORG IS ABOUT HONOR AND JUSTICE

This week, Geraldo Rivera was foiled in his attempt to “contain” the 9/11 movement, something exploding around the world. A Herald Sun poll in Australia the week before, 10,000 respondents, showed 78% support for 9/11 being an “inside job.” A reasonable estimate for Americans is likely to approach the same figure.

Fox News now “owns” 9/11 as much as they own Glen Beck. First, Judge Napolitano “outed” the phony investigation now Geraldo Rivera has taken a strong stand on the (www.buildingwhat.org) Building 7 demolition issue. If you put both shows together, they lead to the most frightening coverup in modern history and a clear evidentiary trail, one Fox News has exposed. Why, then, is the door opened and then closed again?

Growing signs of renewed debt crisis in Europe

There are growing signs of a renewed debt crisis in a number of European nations, as bond yields soar to record highs and the continent’s economic growth stagnates.

The heads of leading European countries took the exceptional step of using the Group of 20 meeting in Seoul to announce that the European Union had confidence in the measures undertaken by Irish leaders to address the nation’s budget deficit. At the same time, the leaders of Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom issued a statement declaring that the EU had no plans for an additional bailout of European nations until at least 2013.

After travelling 4,500 miles through the UK, France, Spain, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya the convoy stalled at the Egyptian border on October 26th due to an Egyptian refusal to allow land access to Gaza. As a result the convoy leaders had little choice but to secure a ship at significant extra expense and delay.

Obama is president of extra-judicial killing, says ex-Guantánamo inmate

US PRESIDENT Barack Obama’s attempts to reach out to Muslims have been an "utter failure" given his broken promises on several issues including closing Guantánamo Bay detention facility, former inmate Moazzam Begg has said.

Begg, whose organisation, Cageprisoners, recently expanded its work to include the highlighting of extra-judicial killings, particularly the use of drone strikes, argued little had changed despite Obama’s promises. "We say that Bush was the president of torture, but Obama is the president of extra-judicial killing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The issue of US extrajudicial assassination, now being heard by the US Supreme Court, puts the entire American concept of judicial due process at extreme risk.

If the Supreme Court sides with the administration, it will then be open season on anyone who even has the most peaceful, mildest (and logical) disagreements with the policies of this, or any subsequent, administration.

I absolutely abhor what Anwar al-Awlaki has allegedly said.

But at the same moment, I do have the faith that it is still possible that the US judicial process, fairly applied, can provide justice, even for a person like Awlaki.

This country is either a country of laws, or a country of people: it cannot be both.

WESTERN MEDIA FRIGHTENED OF THE ‘F’ WORD IN ITS ISRAELI CONTEXT

By Alan Hart — My Catbird Seat

There is a debate in Israel about whether the Zionist state is on the slippery slope to fascism or is already fascist. As far as I am aware the mainstream Western media has not drawn any attention to this:

It was Albert Einstein, the father of modern physics, who, along with 27 other most influential Jews, first warned of the danger of the rise of fascism in Israel. In a letter to the Editor of The New York Times published on 4 December 1948, when Menachem Begin was soliciting support in America, they said this:

ZIONISM: The Need For Israeli Jews To Feel Frightened –ALAN HART

BY KOUROSH ZIABARI

Kourosh Ziabari: In your recent article “Zionism and Peace are Incompatible” you reach a point where you state “if it is the case that American presidents are frightened of provoking Israel, the conclusion would have to be that the Zionist state is a monster beyond control and that all efforts for peace are doomed to failure.” Is it really the case that Israel possesses an uncontrollable, disproportionate power which enables it to violate the international law and enjoy immunity from being held accountable before the international community? What’s the source of this unwarrantable power and influence?

Police personnel from France, Croatia and Poland had joined in the biggest security operation ever mounted against protestors against the a train carrying nuclear waste to a depot in an isolated part of Lower Saxony’s countryside. Helicopters, water canons and police vehicles, including an armoured surveillance truck, accompanied an endless column of anti-riot police mounted on horses and also marching down the railway tracks into the dense woods.

Smokers in the Netherlands will now be able to light-up again in over 2000 of the country's small owner-operated bars or pubs.

An incoming coalition government in the country has allowed the partial lifting of the ban for pubs which are less than 743.5 sq ft in size and which are staffed solely by the owner.

CIA lawyer: U.S. law does not forbid rendition

Daniel Pines, an assistant general counsel at the CIA, has asserted in a law journal that the abduction of terrorism suspects abroad is legal under U.S. law, even when the suspect is turned over to countries notorious for torture.

“There are virtually no legal restrictions on these types of operations,” Pines asserts in the current edition of the Loyola University Chicago Law Journal.

“Indeed, U.S. law does not even preclude the United States from rendering individuals to a third country in instances where the third country may subject the rendered individual to torture. The only restrictions that do exist under U.S. law preclude U.S. officials from themselves torturing or inflicting cruel and unusual punishment on individuals during rendition operations, or rendering individuals from a place of actual armed conflict or occupation -- all of which prove to be narrow limitations indeed,” Pines writes.

UNANSWERED QUESTIONS IN THE YEMEN TERROR SCARE

By Barry Grey (Source: Global Research)

In what has become a regular feature of American public life—especially on the eve of major elections—the airwaves were taken over Friday by breathless reports of a new terror threat. It is impossible to determine how much is fact and how much is fiction in the ever-expanding claims being made regarding two packages from Yemen allegedly containing high explosives and addressed to two synagogues in Chicago.

But the very fact that the decision was made, undoubtedly at a very high level, to give such massive media coverage to the alleged plot—before any concrete details were being reported and entirely on the basis of unsubstantiated claims made by, for the most part, anonymous officials—is sufficient reason to adopt a highly skeptical attitude.

Travel Alert Update: State Department Reiterates European Travel Warnings

The U.S. Department of State is upholding a travel alert placed over Europe earlier this month, said a counterterrorism coordinator on Thursday.

According to U.S. counterterrorism coordinator Daniel Benjamin, the Mumbai-style terror plot aimed at several European cities is still in play and enough of a possibility not to rescind the alert.

American travelers and expatriates were advised by the State Department to keep a low profile and to take general safety precautions. The State Department did not, however, issue a formal warning to Americans not to travel to Europe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that the US State Department has morphed into the US Department of Fearmongering, and instead of preventing terrorism through logical, far-sighted planning, is practicing "scareorrism" to attempt to keep the American people in a perpetual state of panic.

Panic keeps people from thinking clearly and rationally.

The first and foremost thing the US could do to prevent any kind of action like this taking place against American targets, at home or abroad, would be to stop mucking about in other people's countries, like Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Pakistan, and (probably soon) Iran.

Of course, that would be logical.

Board of Education (1947), that: “The ‘establishment of religion’ clause of the First Amendment means at least this: … Neither [a state nor the Federal Government] can pass laws which aid one religion, aid all religions, or prefer one religion over another…

Swiss Complete World’s Longest Tunnel

SEDRUN, Switzerland - Swiss engineers drilling the world's longest tunnel broke through the last section of rock on Friday, crowning more than a decade of work.

The 57.1-km (35.5-mile) rail tunnel under the Gotthard massif will enter service in 2017, taking some of the tens of thousands of tons of freight that crosses the Alps by road every day.

Shown live on Swiss television, a 10-meter-wide drill ceremonially ground away the last few centimeters of rock.

Why Germany Has It So Good -- and Why America Is Going Down the Drain

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article26603.htm

Germans have six weeks of federally mandated vacation, free university tuition, and nursing care. Why the US pales in comparison.

While the bad news of the Euro crisis makes headlines in the US, we hear next to nothing about a quiet revolution in Europe. The European Union, 27 member nations with a half billion people, has become the largest, wealthiest trading bloc in the world, producing nearly a third of the world's economy -- nearly as large as the US and China combined. Europe has more Fortune 500 companies than either the US, China or Japan.

WRAPUP 4-Fuel to Paris reduced as French protests escalate

PARIS, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Striking French oil refinery workers shut down a fuel pipeline supplying Paris and its airports on Friday and airport workers grounded some flights as protests mounted to derail an unpopular pension reform.

France's airport operator played down worries of fuel shortages, but strikes at all of the country's 12 refineries and fuel depot blockades prompted motorists to stock up on petrol.

Truck drivers also were set to join the fray as momentum built for a day of street rallies on Saturday.

The widening protests have become the biggest challenge facing President Nicolas Sarkozy, who is struggling with low popularity ratings as he tries to appease financial markets by stemming a ballooning pension shortfall.

Our Geert (Wilders) has utterly crazy friends.

In his attempts to prove Islam wants to conquer the world by force (brrr...!), arabic expert Hans Jansen appeared in the Amsterdam courtroom last Wednesday.
Hans, a fanatical catholic, agrees with Geert (Wilders) completely. He was asked if the Quran could indeed be compared to Hitlers Mein Kampf, like Geert has done.
His answer was: "there are more anti-semitic passages in the Quran than in that book".

Well, he must have thought, who in the world would go and check that? The court doesnt have Mein Kampf at hand. Everybody who does, and also a Quran (like me) knows this is complete nonsense. I refer Jansen to chapters 3 and 9 in volume 1, and the chapters 2 and 5 in volume 2. And the rest of it, all through de book.

Uncle Sam Wants Your DNA: Privacy a price to pay for travel ticket?

Travellers from countries refusing to share the information will have to apply for a visa to enter the U.S. However some EU states - like Austria and Germany - have already agreed to hand over the personal data of its citizens.

Washington´s Fear Campaign: US Issues Terror Alert for European Cities

The US State Department issued a terror alert Sunday for American citizens traveling anywhere in the continent of Europe, an unprecedented action that seems calculated to spread alarm without actually helping anyone avoid becoming the target of a terrorist attack. The Pentagon imposed a weekend curfew on troops at the US Air Force Base at Ramstein, Germany, ordering soldiers not to wear their uniforms off base “in response to a threat condition.”

Britain, Japan, Sweden and Canada all followed suit, issuing alerts to their own citizens who might be traveling to Europe. In each case, they cited the US alert as evidence that there was an increased danger of a terrorist attack at European transit hubs and tourist attractions.

Is AP deliberately fear-mongering Europe terror threat to sell body scanners?

Activist Post

It appears that the Associated Press is fear-mongering about recently heightened terror threats in Europe. They have turned one vague State Department warning into multiple headline stories, making it appear as though a terror threat is imminent. But the original report provides very flimsy information about a nonspecific threat apparently obtained from, "a Pakistani intelligence official said (that) eight Germans and two British brothers were at the heart of an al-Qaida-linked terror plot against European cities, but the plan was still in its early stages."

Europol Report: All Terrorists are Muslims…Except the 99.6% that Aren’t

The results are stark, and prove decisively that not all terrorists are Muslims. In fact, a whopping 99.6% of terrorist attacks in Europe were by non-Muslim groups; a good 84.8% of attacks were from separatist groups completely unrelated to Islam. Leftist groups accounted for over sixteen times as much terrorism as radical Islamic groups. Only a measly 0.4% of terrorist attacks from 2007 to 2009 could be attributed to extremist Muslims.

Mass protests in Greece, Ireland, Portugal, France, Lithuania, Belgium and several other nations. Legislators in Iceland had to literally run and hide from their own citizens at the opening of the nation’s parliament this week.

The final £60 million instalment is part of a £22 billion debt imposed for starting one of the bloodiest conflicts in history will be cleared on what will also be the 20th anniversary of German reunification.

The Allied victors - primarily Britain, France and America set the reparations in 1919's Treaty of Versailles - a peace agreement - as both compensation and punishment for waging the four year war, which left 10 million soldiers dead, and European towns and cities devastated.
