When some months ago, a strong, still mysterious, bad odor wafted in from New Jersey into New York, it occurred to me that this was or could be a test by terrorists examining the best spread of biochemical or even nuclear radiation into New York for maximum damage effect. Here we go again? With a ratcheted up testing process as the dogs of war strain to be unleashed against Iran? (Alan) United States experiencing mysterious odors The reports of mysterious odors are popping up all over the United States. New York City experienced an odor with no known origin earlier this year, creating somewhat of a panic with the citizens, which is understandable in these terror times. Connecticut has had there share of an enigma fragrance, with no origin ever discovered. Even as far North as Alaska, an odor with no known host was evident to citizens and public officials alike. There are countless other locations throughout the U.S. that has had mystery scents make a guest appearance with no known cause. Could these odors be tests by the U.S. Government, to study the paths in which they take, so as to know where a real toxic cloud would go if a dirty bomb was ever set off by terrorists? How far fetched is it for the security agencies to perform tests in real cities, so as to better prepare for a real threat? It is better to know the path that a toxic cloud would travel, so as to minimize casualties. However, if in fact, these non-toxic odors are created by our government, they could at least inform the city officials, so that the citizens could be notified prior to testing, to ease fears that is not surprisingly caused by it. If these smells are not due to government tests, then someone undesirable may be doing tests of their own. Also, not far fetched, is terror cells performing their own tests, to track the pattern that a dirty bomb would make if detonated. Whatever the creator of these odors, it is not known to the public or even city officials. Do you have any theories? Below are just a few stories involving these mystery odors in the United States. New York City odor story: NYC ODOR Connecticut odor: Conn. odor - Nikiski, Alaska odor: Alaska odor, San Diego odor: San Diego odor This entry was posted on Sunday, September 30th, 2007 at 3:37 pm and is filed under terrorism.

Meanwhile, on the subject of another, perhaps in many ways similar "queen of illegal acitivity", also read the article below of the capture of this infamous Mexican woman. One may become the President of the USA (video) and the other become a long term prisoner.

Best for the world would be if both languished in prison, unable to cause the harm they bring with them. Why bring this drugs story into AntiMullah? Because terrorists of many nationalities but specially from Iran have been funding their anti-West activities with running drugs in co-operation with Mexican and Colombian drug cartels. Latin America now has Iranian investment pouring in - some $100 BILLION has been promised to Venezuela and Colombia - while some 500,000 homeless women and children, starve and freeze in the inhospitable and cold streets of Tehran, the capital city of Iran. Hundreds of thousands more suffer in other cities and villages around the country, ignored and even harrassed by a heartless, mindless Islamic government. During the Monarchy, not always perfect by any means, extensive efforts were made to look after orphans, provide meals in schools- as in America, and use secular family law to prevent women being thrown into the street without any means of survival or support - as now happens in Islamic Iran. And why Hitlery? Because Bill Klintoon and his co-president Hitlery - egged on by the Liberal Left loonies - are the tender gardeners of the Jimmy Carter roots of our international and terrorist difficulties and want to drag a resisting USA into a Socialist or even Communist format Administration. Look at Carter's friendships. Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, Castro of Cuba and several of the new South American leaders who are either Socialists or out and out Communists like Chavez. There is usually a "reason to the madness" (Shakespeare paraphrased) of articles here, which while attacking "political Islam" (as opposed to purely private religious beliefs) has the focus of protecting the Western world from sinking back 1,400 years by the attempts to inject sharia (religious) law into the Western justice system. And removing the clerical lunatics in Islamic Iran, whose "secular" President, Ahmadi-Nutjob illustrated so well during his visit to the USA and the drivel he spouted. DRUG ARREST Mexican police have captured the country’s highest profile female drug trafficker - the notoriously nicknamed Queen of the Pacific - along with her Colombian drug boss boyfriend, aka The Tiger. Sandra Avila Beltran was arrested on Friday driving her BMW sports utility vehicle in a wealthy part of Mexico City. Juan Diego Espinosa was picked up in the same area a few hours later. The couple are allegedly important figures in the organisation of shipments of Colombian cocaine to Mexico heading for the US. Both are also wanted on drugs charges in the United States. Beltran is said to be close to Ismael ‘el Mayo’ Zambada, one of the top drug barons within the Sinaloa trafficking organisation that is headed by the legendary Joaquin ‘el Chapo’ Guzman. Her regal nickname comes from her reputed role in developing smuggling roots up the Pacific coast. Espinosa, 39, is allegedly an important figure within the Colombian Norte del Valle cartel. That group’s leader, Diego Montoya, was arrested three weeks ago in an operation hailed as the biggest blow to Colombian drug traffickers since the fall of the infamous Pablo Escobar in 1993. Mexican authorities said the investigations that finally led them to Beltran began five years ago after the seizure of nine tons of Colombian cocaine in a tuna fishing boat off the Pacific port and resort of Manzanillo. ‘This woman has been transporting Colombian cocaine into Mexico since the Nineties. She is part of a family that has been dedicated to drug trafficking for three generations,’ public safety under-secretary Patricio Patiño said. A video released to the local media by the police show the alleged Queen of the Pacific claiming to be a housewife who earns extra money selling clothes and renting houses. Beltran speaks with hesitation throughout, until asked why she is in police custody. ‘Because of an arrest warrant with a view to my extradition,’ she replies quickly with a smile.

Are Attitudes To Islam Hardening? CHECK OUT "Not So Funny Reality" video on Ahmadi-Nejad A poll was published on Tuesday this week, compiled by the Pew Research Center and the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. This poll had sampled the opinions of 3,002 American adults, and found that 43% of respondents had a favorable view of Muslims, a drop of 5% from a similar poll from March 2004. In the recent poll, 35% had a negative view of Muslims, while in 2004 that figure had been 32%. Amongst religious groups, 51% of white mainstream Protestants and 48% of white Catholics had favorable views of Muslims, while only 24% of white evangelicals held favorable views. Fortunately for Muslim Americans, the respondents viewed them more favorably (53%) than they did Muslims in general. The poll also found that 58% of people said they "knew little or nothing about Islam's practices". (Alan Note: There lies the danger and Islam's insiduous strength - our ignorance of sharia law and the openly stated aim of Islamists to create a Moslem Caliphate to rule the world and IMPOSE sharia on us - similar to imposing Old Testament eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth on our modern society. Sharia laws date back UNCHANGED some 1,400 years and have no place in an enlightened, modern society) Additionally, 70% of Americans questioned thought that their religion was "very different" from Islam. In 2005, the figure for people thinking that their faith differed substantially from Islam stood at 59%. Back in 2001, 52% of people thought that Islam was different from their own faith. In 2001, 31% of people polled felt their religion had "a lot in common" with Islam, dropping to 27% in 2005 and to 19% in 2007. Politically, the most positive views on Muslims come from people who class themselves as "liberal Democrats", with 66% of these having a favorable impression of Muslims. For "conservative and moderate Democrats", as well as "independents", 48% had positive views of Muslims. Amongst Republicans, there is less favorable opinion. Of those with "moderate and liberal" outlooks 41% had positive views of Muslims, compared to only 26% of "conservative Republicans". People who knew a Muslim personally tend to have a more favorable view of Muslims in general. 56% of those who knew Muslims had a positive view, compared to 36% of people with no Muslim associates. The Pew poll, which was conducted between August 1 and August 18, shows that there appears to be a trend which views Muslims and Islam less favorably than three years ago. Other polls from Europe similarly indicate that attitudes towards Islam seem to be hardening, rather than softening. The authors of the Pew report claim that the "biggest influence on the public's impression of Muslims, particularly among those who express an unfavorable opinion of Muslims, is what people hear and read in the media. About a third of the public (32%) - including nearly half of those who offer a negative opinion of Muslims (48%) say what they have seen or read in the media has had the biggest influence on their views." The authors of the report claim that personal experience and education are less influential on people's opinions, though are more frequently cited as influential factors by those with supportive views. The "media" is a broad term. What appears to be lacking in this report is a clear breakdown of which particular aspects, in which areas of media, have made American people develop more negative attitudes. Are people being influenced by negative portrayals in dramas on TV, or by what they see in news reports? There are numerous sites on the internet which are critical of Islamism (political Islam). Are these influential in forming public opinion? If news items on Islamic terrorism are influencing people negatively, it would still be unethical journalism to stop reporting such incidents. Are media-based threats from Al Qaeda influencing public opinion? After the horrific events of 9/11, there was a backlash against people perceived to be Muslims. The FBI claimed that hate crimes enacted upon Arabs and Muslims in the United States increased by 1,700% in 2001. There have been reports of Islamist terror plots on US soil since 9/11, but there have been no significant Islamist terror attacks in the US to explain the apparent rise in mistrust displayed in the Pew report. Findings from the recent Pew survey pose other questions. The proportion of people who view Islam as greatly different from their own faith has increased substantially. Are these people becoming more cynical, or are they understanding some of the basic tenets of Islam more clearly than they did before? One group which has maintained a high media presence in the U.S. is the Council on American Islamic Relations. (CAIR) Though highlighting cases of discrimination against Muslims, this group has been actively making the news, as in the case of the "flying imams" and more recently as an unindicted coconspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, currently playing out in Texas. Are CAIR's attempts to highlight "Muslim issues" backfiring and adding to a growing climate of mistrust? Britain suffered a major terrorist attack in 2005, though killing significantly fewer individuals than 9/11 (52 fatalities and about 600 injuries on London Transport on July 7, 2005). In Britain there have been increases in public mistrust of Muslims according to a poll conducted for the Financial Times and published on August 19. This report was carried out by Harris Interactive, and involved a series of questions posed to respondents in the US and in five European countries - Germany, Italy, Spain, France and Britain. Harris' comprehensive findings comprise a 233-page breakdown of responses 2007_Tables_EU.pdf . A shorter summary can be found here A combined total of 6,398 adults were questioned in the six countries, between 1 and 13 August, 2007, corresponding closely with the time span for the recent Pew study. When asked: "Does the presence of Muslims in your country pose a threat to national security or not?", British respondents had the highest proportion who answered in the affirmative (38%), with the US and France with the lowest proportion (21% and 20% respectively). (Alan note: Americans are too ignorant on this subject to know better, while the French simply disdain them or are the most infilitrated by them) Those who answered "no danger" were the lowest in Spain (45%) and Britain (45%), with France at the highest (68%). 58% of US respondents did not believe the presence of Muslims in their country posed a national security threat. The issue of whether Muslims were seen to have too much or too little political power in respective countries, there was great uncertainty in the US, with 49% answering "not sure', the highest of the six countries surveyed. (Blissful ignorance again?) Only 20% of Americans thought Muslims in the US had "too much" political power, and 23% thought they had "the right amount". For the British respondents, 46% said Muslims in the UK had "too much power", only 28% were "unsure" and 19% thought they had "the right amount". Respondents in the six countries were asked: "Have Muslims in your country become the subject of unjustified criticism and prejudice or not?". Here, the answers had less variation, but again Britain's attitudes appeared to be different from those in the US. 44% of Britons answered "No" compared to 30% of Americans,. 47% of Spanish respondents said "No" to this question, with France (30%) having the fewest to answer "No' to the question. The highest proportion of those who thought Muslims had suffered undue prejudice came from the French (51%) followed by Italians (49%), Americans (47%), Germans (40%) and Britain in the lowest place at 39%. Respondents were asked "Do you have any friends who are Muslim?." Social relations with Muslims were highest in France, with 69% claiming to have Muslim friends, followed by Britain (38%), Germany (37%), Italy (32%), the US (28%), and Spain the lowest at 27%. Spain appears to have the least social interaction with Muslims, with 70% of respondents claiming to have no Muslim friends, followed by Italy (67%), Germany (61%), the US (60%), Britain (55%) and France with the lowest amount answering "no" (28%). On the issue of terror attacks happening on home territories within the next 12 months, the UK had the highest proportion (52%) who believed this would happen. 32% of Spaniards thought such an attack would happen on their soil, closely followed by 30% of Americans. France, Italy and Germany responded similarly, with between 15% and 18% believing an attack would happen within 12 months in their respective countries. FT poll graphic 59% of Britons thought it was possible to be both a Muslim and a citizen of the country, a lower percentage than found in the other five nations surveyed. (With centuries of experience through having had a British Empire and dealing with a wide variety of cultures at a government level, the residual knowledge remains with the British psyche and an inkling of what sharia law means) France had the highest number who believed Islam and citizenship were compatible, closely followed by the United States. Almost 30% of Britons thought it was impossible for a Muslim to be a British citizen and a Muslim (quite correctly according to Islam which allows allegiance only to Allah, not to any State or nation). In France, (with a high enough percentage of Moslems for the tail to wag the dog) only 18% of respondents thought it was impossible for a French Muslim to be a citizen and a Muslim. (Not an opinion shared by devout Moslems themselves).,+poll+shows In May last year a national poll was published in the German newspaper Frankfurter Allegmaine which indicated that attitudes towards Islam had worsened in the two years since 2004. 91% of respondents thought that Islam oppressed women (in 2004, the amount was 85%). 83% of Germans thought Islam was dominated by fanaticism (in 2004, the figure was 75%). 71% of Germans questioned felt Islam was intolerant, compared to 66% in 2004. 56% thought the "Clash of Civilisations" had already started. In 2004, 46% believed it had started. The German survey also asked if strict limits should be imposed upon Islam in Germany, and nearly half (40%) agreed. (Possibly based on their decades of experience with Turkish, mostly Moslem, guest workers) Germans were asked if building of mosques should be forbidden in their nation while some Islamic states refused permission for churches to be built. Again, more than half (56%) agreed. More than half (61%) of the respondents agreed that there would perpetually be "major conflict between both faiths". The pollsters concluded: "If one looks at this from a pessimistic viewpoint it could be seen as the start of a downward spiral toward conflict...The clash of civilizations has already begun in the minds of citizens." France appeared in the August Financial Times study to have the best relations with Muslims of the five European countries polled. French respondents were the least concerned if one of their offspring married a Muslim, for example. It is possible that there is a correlation with these responses and the attitudes held by French Muslims. Though using only a small sample from France's estimated 6 million Muslims, a poll study carried out on 513 respondents in August 2006 found some surprising attitudes of tolerance towards French secular values. The study was commissioned by La Vie, a Roman Catholic weekly. 94% of the French Muslims believed people were equal "regardless of religion". 69% said they would accept a Muslim marrying someone outside of their faith. 73% believed in the separation of Church and state, and 46% thought it was acceptable for a Muslim to convert to Christianity. Younger French Muslims aged 18 to 24 were less tolerant of Muslims converting to Christianity, with 56% opposing conversions out of Islam. 31% of this age group opposed marriage between Muslims and non-Muslims. Some of the French Muslims appeared to be rather lax in their faith: 30% never read the Koran, only 17% attended a mosque on a weekly basis, and 49% of respondents claimed that they never went to mosque. Even though 56% of younger French Muslims opposed conversions out of Islam, this is hardly comparable to the situation in Britain. A poll conducted by Populus in Britain, which was published by the Policy Exchange in January of this year found that among young British Muslims aged 16 to 24, 36% believed that a Muslim who converts to another religion should be "punished by death". One in eight young Muslims said that they admired groups such as Al Qaeda which are "prepared to fight the West". 37% of younger Muslims wanted to live under Sharia law. The full report (pdf document) entitled Living Apart Together can be found here: . demo Britain, probably more so than any of the countries listed in the Harris/Financial Times poll, has tried to force policies of "multiculturalism" onto the general public, and has an administration which attempts to show favor to Islam. The attitudes of British Muslims have not been ameliorated by such policies, if polls are to be believed. The hostility to Western values expressed by Britain's Muslims was highlighted in June 2006 in a survey by Pew Global Attitudes. Amongst Muslims of all ages, 81% of British Muslims surveyed claimed to see themselves as "Muslims first", citizens second, compared to 69% of Spanish Muslims, 66% of German Muslims and only 46% of French Muslims. The left-leaning Guardian,,1804078,00.html newspaper commented on the 2006 Pew report in an article entitled "Poll shows Muslims in Britain are the most anti-Western in Europe": "The poll found that 63% of all Britons had a favourable opinion of Muslims, down slightly from 67% in 2004, suggesting last year's London bombings did not trigger a significant rise in prejudice. Attitudes in Britain were more positive than in the US, Germany and Spain (where the popularity of Muslims has plummeted to 29%), and about the same as in France. Less than a third of British non-Muslims said they viewed Muslims as violent, significantly fewer than non-Muslims in Spain (60%), Germany (52%), the US (45%) and France (41%). By contrast, the poll found that British Muslims represented a "notable exception" in Europe, with far more negative views of westerners than Islamic minorities elsewhere on the continent. A significant majority viewed western populations as selfish, arrogant, greedy and immoral. Just over half said westerners were violent. While the overwhelming majority of European Muslims said westerners were respectful of women, fewer than half British Muslims agreed." Muslims in Britain, according to this report, showed anti-Semitic attitudes. Only 32% of British Muslims had a favorable opinion of Jews, whereas 71% of French Muslims viewed Jews favorably. The June 2006 poll by Pew surveyed 14,000 individuals in 15 countries. One of the co-chairs of the study, Senator John Danforth (St Louis) said "It seems to me that where they (Muslims) really tilt against the West has to do with values or with lifestyle or with perceptions that the West is a place of selfishness and arrogance and violence. Where do they get that idea? Maybe on television, I don't know." It is significant that a proportion the non-Muslim respondents in the most recent Pew report are, by the authors' admission, finding that the media is fueling negative perceptions of Muslims and Islam. Perhaps a very specific poll should be carried out in the US and elsewhere to specify exactly which areas of the media are creating "negative" perceptions. In Britain, a leftist commentator from the Guardian appears September/opinion_September80.xml&section=opinion&col=to to blame the rise in mistrust of Muslims - as reported in the August Harris/FT poll - entirely upon the media. Attitudes towards Muslims are becoming less trusting in the West, and in Britain, this rise in mistrust seems linked to an increase in physical attacks upon Muslims. Polls are good at indicating trends, but they are not always so clear on the issues of causality. More polls are needed, both to gauge the attitudes of Muslims to the Western countries they live in, and the attitudes of Westerners to Muslims. It is not enough to merely document deteriorating relations. The causes need to be explored more fully, and once identified, they can be addressed. Merely "blaming the media" is not enough.

Ahmadinejad offered up his attacks while extolling his vision of Islamic global domination. Refusing to note his existential challenge to the Free World, the Western media concentrated their coverage of his trip on his statements regarding specific Western policy goals. His rejection of the UN Security Council's authority to take action against Iran's illicit nuclear weapons program; his championing of the Palestinian cause and Israel's destruction; his denials of Iranian support for terrorism, and his attacks against the US were widely reported. So too, his insistence that Iranian women enjoy full rights and that there are no homosexuals in Iran received banner headlines.Ahmadinejad gave two major addresses this week - at Columbia University and at the UN General Assembly. He devoted both to putting forward his vision for global Islamic domination. And while the Western media sought hidden meanings and signals for peaceful intentions in his words, the fact is that on both occasions, Ahmadinejad made absolutely clear that his vision of Islamic domination cannot coexist in any manner with Western civilization. Consequently, Ahmadinejad's statements were not negotiating stances. They were the direct consequence of the world view he propounds. As such, they are non-negotiable.

Dick Morris & Eileen McGannNew York Post, September 27, 2007 Columbia University this week managed to hand a PR victory to Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. It's time for another New York institution - the state Office of the Comptroller - to join the drive to undermine this evil and dangerous regime. California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to sign a new law aimed at banning Golden State public pension funds - which includes the two largest ones in America - from investing in companies that are involved in developing Iranian petroleum or natural-gas resources. Florida's public-employee-retirement fund is divesting nearly $1.3 billion invested with 21 companies doing business in Iran or Sudan. (California already hit Sudan's pocketbook last year.) Missouri and Louisiana have similar policies in place. The blow to Iran's rulers should be huge. The California system alone has assets totaling $350 billion - much of it invested in companies that do business with Iran such as Sieman's, Total, Respol and Shell.

Kagan Opinion Journal, September 29, 2007 Many politicians and pundits in Washington have ignored perhaps the most important point made by Gen. David Petraeus in his recent congressional testimony: The defeat of al Qaeda in Iraq requires a combination of conventional forces, special forces and local forces. This realization has profound implications not only for American strategy in Iraq, but also for the future of the war on terror. As Gen. Petraeus made clear, the adoption of a true counterinsurgency strategy in Iraq in January 2007 has led to unprecedented progress in the struggle against al Qaeda in Iraq, by protecting Sunni Arabs who reject the terrorists among them from the vicious retribution of those terrorists. In his address to the United Nations General Assembly Wednesday, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki also touted the effectiveness of this strategy while at the same time warning of al Qaeda in Iraq's continued threat to his government and indeed the entire region. Yet despite the undeniable successes the new strategy has achieved against al Qaeda in Iraq, many in Congress are still pushing to change the mission of U.S. forces back to a counterterrorism role relying on special forces and precision munitions to conduct targeted attacks on terrorist leaders. This change would bring us back to the traditional, consensus strategy for dealing with cellular terrorist groups like al Qaeda--a strategy that has consistently failed in Iraq.

The endless wait for the Winograd Committee report and the political capital the prime minister has received in opinion polls published in recent days - have drawn the attention of most Israelis away from the daily warfare that is taking place less than an hour from the center of the country. In recent months, the West Bank and Gaza Strip security forces have arrested hundreds of militants and foiled dozens of terrorist attacks. Only the fact that yesterday the IDF suffered its first fatality this year in the West Bank has returned the focus on what is taking place on that front.It's common to claim it is impossible to defeat terrorism. But over the years of combating Palestinian terrorism during the second intifada (this month marks the seventh anniversary), the IDF and the Shin Bet have reached the closest possible point to achieving a victory. Since the beginning of the year, two soldiers (one each in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip) and six Israeli citizens (three in a suicide bombing in Eilat, two from Qassam rockets in Sderot, and one who was stabbed to death in the Etzion bloc in the West Bank) were killed as a result of terrorism. These are very minor figures, considering the number of attempts at carrying out attacks, and also when compared to the high point of the intifada, when 450 Israelis were killed in 2002. The last suicide bombing in central Israel occurred 18 months ago, in April 2006, in the old central bus station in Tel Aviv. The winning formula is a combination of aggressive intelligence gathering by the Shin Bet, the obstacle created by the separation fence and the complete freedom of operations granted to the IDF in the Palestinian cities. The army considers the continued arrests of militants and the main roadblocks as essential tools for successfully combating terrorism. Defense Minister Ehud Barak said yesterday that if he had to choose between easing restrictions on Palestinians and security considerations, he would opt for the latter.

HonigmanIsrael Hasbara Committee, September 28, 2007 IHC Abstract - The nub of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is about appetite vs. starvation, declares the writer.In their attempt to create the 23rd Arab state and the second Palestinian state (Jordan being the first), the Arabs are trying to convince themselves and the entire world that they are both the old Jews and the new Jews. First they hijack Palestine as their historic country, when clear Jewish as well as Roman records of Jesus time make no mention of the land being Arab. Second they hijack the historic condition of Jewish statelessness as their own.History records that it was the Roman conqueror Hadrian who renamed Judea Syria Palaestina, after the Jews historical enemies the Philistines. This renaming was done in the aftermath of the Roman suppression of the revolt of Bar Kochva, in which 580,000 people perished.

Editorial Investors Business Daily, September 26, 2007 War On Terror: A new movie called "The Kingdom" shows Saudis fighting terrorism alongside FBI agents. That's certainly what we'd like to see. But like the flick, it's pure fiction.There's new evidence the Saudis aren't cooperating in our battle to eradicate terrorists or those who bankroll them. Their negligence is shocking even to cynics. According to the Treasury Department's top anti-terror official, the kingdom has not prosecuted a single person named by the U.S. or the United Nations as a terror financier. Asked by ABC News how many Saudis have been charged with funding terror since 9/11, Treasury Undersecretary Stuart Levey said, "There have not been any." Not one? "No," he asserted.

ISAIAH 5:20 From the 1960s, inversion of truth and reality has been one the most favored propaganda methods of Israel's adversaries. One of its most frequent expressions has been the accusation that the Jewish people, victims of the Nazis, have now become the new Nazis, aggressors and oppressors of the Palestinian Arabs. Contemporary observers have identified this method and described it as an "inversion of reality," an "intellectual confidence trick," "reversing moral responsibility," or "twisted logic." Because Israel's enemies have, for nearly half a century, repeated such libels without being challenged, they have gradually gained credence. Since inversion of reality constitutes the basic principle of current anti-Israeli propaganda, it is important to understand what it is and how it works. This propaganda method is a product of Nazi Germany. It is totalitarian both in its methods, particularly the use of the paranoiac myth, and in the absolute solution it advocates. It totally denies all of Israel's claims and leaves no room for introspection and compromise.The Problem in Historical Perspective: Israel and the Media War>From the 1960s, inversion of truth and reality has been one the most favored propaganda methods of Israel's adversaries.

Gary Bauer writes: Columbia University has banned the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) from its campus since 1969, highlighting the fact that many universities treat America's enemies better than they do those who protect America. ...[I]n the hands of liberal academia tolerance is an elastic concept. Michael Rubin writes:[W]hile faculty members fall all over themselves to bring repressive dictators to campus, many dissidents from the same countries are ignored. Columbia has never invited chief Libyan democracy activist Fathi El-Jahmi, for example (his mailing address for the last two and a half years would be Libya's state prison system).

Israel's recent air attack on Syria, shutting down and by-passing the Russian made air defenses they bought a huge cost - as did Iran - proved Israel can and we can - destroy at will. CLICK ON TITLE/SUBJECT TO READ ARTICLE




Misplaced humor often elicits the frustrated comment "I don't know whether to laugh or to cry". Also humor is generally "sadistic" - in classic terms, someone slips on th eproverbial banana peel, crashed painfully to the ground and we (theoretically) laugh our heads off.

To many, Ahmadi-Nejad's Columbia visit was a sad joke but like reality in humor there was an underlying "sadistic crash" behind it.

1. Islamic Iran reportedly makes substantial donations to this university and Bollinger was faced with the choice of doing the right thing and rejecting Ahmadi-Nejad's presence and risk losing this income - or protecting his cash flow - even from a "sane lunatic" from a terrorist state.

2. Again, reports from inside Iran indicate that a deal was brokered that would ensure the release of one of the Americans imprisoned by the clerics - a Columbia alumni - if Ahmadi-Nejad were permitted to speak at Columbia.

Bollinger accepted both conditions but had a last bite at a man he clearly does not respect in his derogatory opening remarks.

To understand Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's mindset and behavior require close scrutiny of the elaborate and intricate theology of Hujetieh Shiism, perhaps the most fundamentalist of the numerous Shiite sects. In the 1950s, a group of Islamic clergy led by Sheikh Mahmoud Halabi (a close associate of Ayatollah Khomeini) formed a society called the Anjoman-e Khayryyehye Hujjatiyyah-ye Mahdaviat (Charitable Society of the Mahdi), based in Mashhad, Iran. The Hujjatyyah membership was mostly composed by the bazaar-i businessmen and fanatical mullahs. Among many things, they were against the communists, Marxists, and atheists. Their overarching "raison d'être," however, was to prepare the world for the upcoming of the 12th Imam -- the Mehdi. However, the most important immediate agenda item on their list was to harass and persecute the Baha'is, a religious group representing a small percentage of Iran's population. In fact, the Hujjatiyyah-y's alternative name became "The anti-Baha'i Society" (Anjuman-e Zidd-e Baha'iyat). They collectively worked for a single purpose: the eradication of Baha'is. The terrible plight of the Baha'is in Iran is particularly heart-wrenching, since they are the largest non-Muslim population in the country and have been, from day one, severely brutalized by Muslims. Baha'i teachings of tolerance and openness to science are anathema to the Islamofascists on many levels, but the history of the faith includes direct click here challenges to the theological legitimacy of the mullahs. These slaveholders find the Baha'i faith a threat to their own version of Islam and the absolute theocratic power it puts their hands. The egomaniac President Ahmadinejad is a member of Hujjatiyyah. He sees himself as the personal vassal of the Mahdi-Messiah or Hidden Imam, with whom he has fantasized tête-à-têtes frequently. Ahmadinejad, a man driven by his religion, has a spiritual advisor in Ayatollah Mohammad Taghi Mesbah-Yazdi (the defacto leader of the Hojatieh). The President's advisor is known for his extremist views on Islam and promotes suicide bombings and attacks on civilians in the West. There is only view of Islam for him. He once said, "...if anyone tells you their own interpretation of Islam, punch them in the mouth!" President Ahmedinejad has in a short time acquired great many descriptors at home and overseas: zealot, fascist, fanatic, anti-Semitic, lunatic and more. One prominent Western columnist called him "unhinged." But we cannot just dismiss the man as an aberration, someone who is in urgent need of psychological help, a person out of touch with reality, who represents nothing of substance. Once again the West is misreading and misjudging people and events in the Middle East, due to the fact that it views things through its own prism. Looking at the man through Western spectacles, he indeed appears to be all of the above and more. Yet Ahmadinejad is far from unhinged. As a matter of fact he is firmly hinged to a set of beliefs that dictate his views of the world, and inform him how he should deal with it from his position of power. An unhinged man has the potential of becoming once again hinged. But, there is very little that can be done to a person who is inseparably hinged, and Ahmadinejad views are firmly rooted in the most orthodox philosophy of Shiism. For our purposes, however, it is sufficient to document the fact that Ahmadinejad is not mentally disturbed; there is no display of contradictory thoughts and behavior. There is a full internal consistency in Ahmadinejad. Ahmadinejad's words, deeds and beliefs show a fully hinged person. Below are a few examples of his sayings, beliefs and actions. Whether one agrees or disagrees with them, they all fit perfectly into a consistent pattern. ▪ He literally believes in the imminent emergence of the Mahdi - the Shiites' promised one who is expected to appear to set aright a decadent and wretched world. ▪ He views himself as the vassal of Mahdi, working for him and being accountable to him. ▪ His main task is to prepare the world so to hasten the Mahdi's coming. If this preparation requires much destruction and bloodshed, so be it. ▪ As a former mayor of Tehran, he developed elaborate detailed plans preparing the city for the arrival of the Mahdi. ▪ He allocated generous sums for extensive road improvement to a mosque at Jamkaaraan near the city of Qum where it is believed the promised Mahdi is hiding in a well since the age of nine, over 1100 years ago. ▪ He reportedly visits the well frequently and drops his written supplications into the well for the hidden Mahdi to act upon them. ▪ He has said in private that it was he who asked the Mahdi to inflict the massive stroke on Ariel Sharon. ▪ He sees the Jews as the sworn enemies of Islam. The hostility dates back to the time of Muhammad's own treatment of the Jews in Medina. At first, expediently, Muhammad called the Jews "people of the book," and accorded them a measure of tolerance until he gained enough power to unleash his devastating wrath on them. ▪ He says that the Holocaust is a myth. He is, in this respect, in good company with a number of other revisionist fanatics. ▪ He wants Israel to be wiped out of the map or transferred to Europe. ▪ In his speech at the UN general assembly, he implored the Mahdi to come and save the world. He claimed that during his speech of some twenty odd minutes, a powerful light enveloped him and all participants were held transfixed, unable to move their eyes. ▪ He believes that the earth is Allah's and all people must either become believers of his brand of Islam or must perish as infidels najis (unclean) who by their very presence defile Allah's earth. ▪ He believes that this earthly life is passing and worthless in comparison to the afterlife awaiting a devoted and faithful believer. Hence, he holds to the old belief that if a faithful kills an infidel, he goes to Allah's paradise; and, if the faithful gets killed in the process of serving the faith, again he goes to Allah's paradise. Hence, it is a win-win proposition for the faithful. Ahmadinejad is a true devoted Muslim. Being unpredictable, self-contradictory and inconsistent are major symptoms of the mentally unhinged. By these standards of insanity, Ahmadinejad emerges as completely sane. He is fully predictable, consistent and has shown no self-contradiction. He does not even pretend that he misspoke or apologize for his outrageous statements. He is not a typical politician who practices the devious art of doublespeak, deception and change of position to suit his immediate convenience. He knows who he is, what he believes, and what his own mission in life is: serving as the instrument for the revered Mahdi. Allah will make him emerge from the well as soon as the world's conditions hit absolute hopeless bottom. Ahmadinejad sees himself as a driver who can play a critical role in doing just that, driving the world to the very bottom. And he plans on having an arsenal of nuclear weapons as soon as possible.There is nothing really "unhinged" about Ahamadinejad's thinking, statements and actions. They are internally consistent. He is simply a fanatic who is wedded to an extremely dangerous exclusionary system of belief. Humanity must learn that dismissing him as a lunatic will result in great suffering, as it did with Hitler. Tragically, Ahmadinejad is the embodiment of several million people who are hinged exactly like him and who are willing to give their lives, and take with them as many lives as required in the service of their belief. In this age of Weapons of Mass Destruction a man with huge sums of petrodollars can serve as the catalyst of total annihilation. Prudence would err on the side of being an alarmist than a complacent dismissive. Ahmadinejad and his ilk are not interested in any negotiation, any compromise or any live-and-let-live final solution. They are determined to be the soldiers of Mahdi come-what-may. They have no problem with the total destruction of the world. They are headed for a life of eternal bliss in Allah's paradise. They hardly care, even rejoice, if the rest of humanity is subjected to a tragic death in the nuclear, biological and chemical wasteland of planet earth. Humanity cannot afford and must not ignore the emergence of the final threat to its very existence on this planet.

Jack Mutha deserves to be lumped together with Ahmadi-Nejad. Similar scum but Murtha uses character assassination instead of tire irons to maim and torture innocents. Emotionally.

Opinions stated with pictures

Here on AntiMullah we do not openly promote assassination but not everyone on the Internet is as "reserved" and this killer with a huge ego has more enemies than he has hair on his head.

AntiMullah would shed no tears if Ahmadi -Nejad met with a fatal accident.

With pictures worth a thousand words, here is a look at what Ahmadi-Nejad's visit means and what incompetence in our political arena and denial of reality can bring very close to home. Yours and mine. Not as far fetched as it seems at first blush. The extent of unthinkably violent "repression and suppression" depicted in this real photo of the Bassiji "police" may not reach America nor Europe tomorrow but will be a logical conclusion to the events unfolding now. All pointing in that direction as we hesitate and waffle, hoping the nightmare will go away when we awake. How stupid can we get?

Not believing that when we wake, this reality will likely have come to us in our sleep.

(Re: Comment from Chaya: "How come there aren't any visitors here??? You are an incredible person for doing this!! I just sent your site on to a bunch of friends and others. I also posted it on a Columbia University site which is 'debating' whether inviting Achmajinedad was the right thing to do or not. Do you want to know where it is??"

Alan's Reply: Over 500 visits and 850 page views today, so far (bit above average for a Sunday) including from Iran itself and a big number using Farsi language browsers but disguising their origin.

Visitors from all over the world drop in here but rarely post a comment. Instead they visit the various other pages, like the NEWS VIEWS or Daily Terror News pages, read, enjoy and often learn more about wide ranging geographical posts.

Yes, please send me the Columbia or other sites to and thank you for propagating my efforts. I constantly discover new sites which regularly post my articles.

Some, which specialize in counter terror or intelligence, post my whole Home page every time there is a change.

Be well. And since I am reverting back to this post, I have added two photos at the end. Which is the real Ahmadi-Nejad? Both? Neither?


Comparatively recently, the so-called "police" thugs with absolute immunity from reprimand or punishment for maiming and killing anyone, have had some $520 million spent on equipping and training them to ruthessly put down any anti-regime demonstrations. Or even a simple protest gathering.

The brandished weapon shown in the Islamic regime "police" photo is a variation on a long standing use of tire irons normally used to remove old or punctured auto tyres from wheel rims. These flat and heavy "double use" tools shattered inumerable limbs and heads during the pre-Ahmadi-Nejad administrations. Now with his total focus on control and a newfound liberation of the Bassiji to arrest anyone, they felt free to use a sharpened version of the tire iron, even making a wooden handle for it. Note the blood drain holes to facilitate slicing and extraction from a deep wound. Just like good kitchen knives. And the notch to prevent blood flowing back down to the handle. THEIR TERRORIST THUG BOSS - AHMADI-NEJAD - HIMSELF A COLD-BLOODED KILLER OF DISSIDENTS OVERSEAS - AND U.S .EMBASSY HOSTAGE TAKER (SHOWN BELOW IN A 1979 PHOTO AND A RECENT ONE) ENCOURAGES AND PROTECTS THE BASSIJI "POLICE" .


Contrary to his claim of being a SIMPLE man of the people and clean and honest, the copy of the newspaper below, trumpets in the headlines his corrupt and illegal payment of "billions" to his brother!
Ahmadi Brother Scam This thug executioner (regularly put 'coup de grace' bullets into the heads of those executed by firing squad early on in the revolution and was nicknamed accordingly), now is equally allowed to speak at Columbia University as if he were: not a declared terrorist, not a death squad commander, not dedicated to the eradication of the USA, not a tiny, dangerous man with a Napoleonic complex, not a philosophical Hojatieh sect adherent, (which believes that the 12th Imam redeemer will only return after 1,300 years until someone creates enough pain, death, misery and suffering to get his attention)

Not a sworn, ruthless proponent to use any means to destroy the West,

Not a rogue nation leader with already purchased/acquired nuclear capability (estimated at some eight to 12 warheads on Shahab missiles),

And - not a second creator of a situation similar to Hitler in the early 20th Century, which if we ignore or deny will cause even more death than Hitler ever could.


A tormentor and destroyer of the human mind, body and spirit as shown in two pictures below. The woman, who survived physically - got out alive - will bear physical and mental and emotional scars for the rest of her life.

Repeated and gang rape as part of punishment of female prisoners during their incarceration is encouraged by Ahmadi-Nejad and his administration to terrify anyone who might wish to oppose him.

Raping the women also puts a deep fear into their menfolk and forces them to hesitate before any opposition action knowing retribution would descend mercilessly n their loved women.

Mild result of Ahmadi-Nejad type punishement

More usual result of torture at the hands of Ahmadi-Nejad's thugs and hopefully relief in death can be seen below.

This (now unrecognizable) young man was picked up as a suspect! And never came out alive. His body shows the extent of the torture. Other photos show how they carved into his flesh to make him give up friends.

Early days in the torture and death shows (below) a still almost recognizable human.

Hey! Columbia University. You want to chat with the man who perpetrates this? Shame on you!

Hey! World leaders. You want this evil apology for a human to confront you with nuclear weapons? Wise up! And rapidly!

Read an analysis triggered by an open letter to President Bush from a Persian. Originally posted in Farsi (Persian) on my Multilingual Page (link in left hand column) but now loosely translated and being posted here in English as early as tomorrow (probably Monday) as the lead article.

Will the real Ahmadi-Nejad stand up, please!

Both illustrate the simple nutjob who drew up plans to move 20 million Iranians from villages to a dozen HUGE new cities to save on cost of providing water, electricity, phones and other infra-structure.

As any city planner with half a brain would testify this is a lunatic approach to urban structure - causing enormous problems with sewage disposal, air quality, transportation considerations, job provision for this imported population, etc.

But then he could not care less and simply arrests and tortures anyone who disagrees with him and if they die under the abuse, so much the better. One less opponent or dissident with whom to deal! He does not pay factory workers anyway so why would not providing jobs bother him?

Do nearly 500,000 homeless, parentless, vulnerable children just in Tehran streets alone bother him? Does he spend any fraction of the hundreds of BILLIONS he gives to Syria, Hamas and Hezbollah to provide for them? No.

Or the tens of thousands of abandoned women, also jobless and vulnerable on the same streets? No.

On the contrary he manages to arrest 140,000 women for improper Islamic dress code - in the space of - THREE DAYS! Why care when he can terrify them into submission and silence?

Shame on all those who condone his existence and appease him, as they did the Hitler before him.

(Alan Note: EMP stands for Electro-Magnetic Pulse and refers to the "radiation" that can be created, which harms no living being physically but "fries" electronic circuits beyond repair. Not just computers in banks, Wall Street and similar high value financial targets but also subways, trains, traffic lights, auto engines, truck engines, electricity grids, shipping and harbor control, aircraft in flight and on the ground etc., etc. Anything that uses or relies on electronics and these days what does not? Telephone communications, landlines or cellular, radios and so on would cease to operate. Which is why I screamed to high heaven and anyone who would listen to me in the corridors of power the previous time Ahmadi-Nejad wanted to come to the USA. In a PRIVATE aircraft with some 20 or 30 armed security personnel who would remain on his aircraft and not pass custons or immigration. Luckily soneone heard and he was not granted permission for the private aircraft, nor as far as I remember the motley crew he wished to bring in. What purpose would they have? Other than to prevent access to the aircraft AND to either the electronic surveillance equipment on board to monitor and evaluate the New York area communications or implement other Russian or Chinese supplied spying techniques. The most dangerous, however, was the ability of this lunatic President of Islamic Iran to be making a speech at the United Nations, be behind the podium when this aircraft took off and detonated an EMP device. Not at a perfect height but enough to cripple New York city and all this would mean. His alibi - knowing the EMP would not harm a person - is "I was on the ground, too, and these were rogues disobeying me. The irreperable damage would be done and not much could be leveled at him. U.S military targets are generally behind shielded and hardened protection but the vast backbone and spokes of our economy, transportation and communications would be disabled. Even if only in a region the size of New York, still enough to cripple America. While we quibble with him as to whether he should be able to visit the Twin Tower location this time around, we may be letting him bring far worse poison than affronting our sensitivies. Our Administration and Authorities need to carefully weigh allowing him into the USA along these lines not just the diplomatic aspects of permitting him to vist and speak at the UN. He is a member of the Hojatieh sect of Islam that believes that if he creates enough pain. misery, death, destruction and suffering - even at the cost of his own life - he will get the attention of the 12th Imam, who would then deign to descend to earth (after 1,300 years of absence) and redeem the globe and turn it into an Islamic caliphate! His only hesitation would be that he would prefer to annihilate Israel first and then leave this earth. Crippling the USA might be his second most important desire. Electro-Magnetic Pulse Nuclear war to be launched by Iran - Ayatollah warns U.S. needs punch on the mouth Iran's spiritual leader says nuke plan to continue The spiritual leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is warning the U.S. to stay out of his country's business � and, in particular, its nuclear program, which is set to resume this week. Speaking on a tour of southeast Iran, Khamenei said the US "deserved a punch in the mouth." From where does this brashness come? It comes from Iran's plans to launch an Electro-Magnetic Pulse Nuclear war against the USA and Europe, crippling the West in the War on terror. We shall give our blood for you Oh Khamenei - Iranians celebrate Ashura - A bloodied Shia Muslim rite In an article titled, "Electronics to Determine Fate of Future Wars," an Iranian Military journal explains how an EMP attack on America's electronic infrastructure, caused by the detonation of a nuclear weapon high above the U.S., would bring the country to its knees. "Once you confuse the enemy communication network you can also disrupt the work of the enemy command- and decision-making center," the article states. "Even worse today when you disable a country's military high command through disruption of communications, you will, in effect, disrupt all the affairs of that country. If the world's industrial countries fail to devise effective ways to defend themselves against dangerous electronic assaults then they will disintegrate within a few years. American soldiers would not be able to find food to eat nor would they be able to fire a single shot." (Photo credits : Mideast Reality) _____________________________ He also said Iran's presidential elections in June would not make any difference to its nuclear policy. Khamenei said it was not up to the U.S. to decide which countries needed nuclear technology. Iran announced yesterday it is likely to resume uranium enrichment-related activities next week, following a breakdown in negotiations between the Shiite regime and the European Union. Tehran's announcement after talks in London with European negotiators yielded no results. France, Britain and Germany, acting on behalf of the 25-nation European Union, were seeking guarantees from Iran that it will not use its nuclear program to make weapons. Top Iranian nuclear negotiator Hasan Rowhani was quoted as saying Tehran expects to restart enrichment activities injecting uranium gas into centrifuges at its uranium-conversion facility in Isfahan. "It's unlikely that uranium enrichment ... which takes place in Natanz, will be resumed, but it's likely that some activities at Isfahan Uranium Conversion Facility will restart next week," Rowhani said today. The central cities of Natanz and Isfahan house the heart of Iran's nuclear program. The Isfahan conversion facility reprocesses uranium ore concentrate into gas, which is then taken to Natanz and fed into the centrifuges for enrichment. Washington agreed to support the EU effort but signaled that Iran, which Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice last month labeled an "outpost of tyranny," should quickly accept it or face harsh Security Council sanctions. The breakdown in talks between Iran and Europe puts Tehran's nuclear program back in the international spotlight and is likely to force Washington to react. There is increasing concern within the administration and Congress over Iran's missile program, which has been determined by a commission of U.S. scientists to pose a serious threat to U.S. security. A report first published in Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin, a weekly, online, premium, intelligence newsletter affiliated with WND, revealed last week that Iran has been seriously considering an unconventional pre-emptive nuclear strike against the U.S. An Iranian military journal publicly floated the idea of launching an electromagnetic pulse attack as the key to defeating the U.S. Congress was warned of Iran's plans last month by Peter Pry, a senior staffer with the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse Attack in a hearing of Sen. John Kyl's subcommittee on terrorism, technology and homeland security. In an article titled, "Electronics to Determine Fate of Future Wars," the Iranian Military journal explains how an EMP attack on America's electronic infrastructure, caused by the detonation of a nuclear weapon high above the U.S., would bring the country to its knees. "Once you confuse the enemy communication network you can also disrupt the work of the enemy command- and decision-making center," the article states. "Even worse today when you disable a country's military high command through disruption of communications, you will, in effect, disrupt all the affairs of that country. If the world's industrial countries fail to devise effective ways to defend themselves against dangerous electronic assaults then they will disintegrate within a few years. American soldiers would not be able to find food to eat nor would they be able to fire a single shot." WND reported the Iranian threat last Monday, explaining Tehran is not only covertly developing nuclear weapons, it is already testing ballistic missiles specifically designed to destroy America's technical infrastructure. Pry pointed out the Iranians have been testing mid-air detonations of their Shahab-3 medium-range missile over the Caspian Sea. The missiles were fired from ships. "A nuclear missile concealed in the hold of a freighter would give Iran or terrorists the capability to perform an EMP attack against the United States homeland without developing an ICBM and with some prospect of remaining anonymous," explained Pry. "Iran's Shahab-3 medium range missile mentioned earlier is a mobile missile and small enough to be transported in the hold of a freighter. We cannot rule out that Iran, the world's leading sponsor of international terrorism might provide terrorists with the means to executive an EMP attack against the United States." Lowell Wood, acting chairman of the commission, said yesterday that such an attack � by Iran or some other actor � could cripple the U.S. by knocking out electrical power, computers, circuit boards controlling most automobiles and trucks, banking systems, communications and food and water supplies. "No one can say just how long systems would be down," he said. "It could be weeks, months or even years." EMP attacks are generated when a nuclear weapon is detonated at altitudes above a few dozen kilometers above the Earth's surface. The explosion, of even a small nuclear warhead, would produce a set of electromagnetic pulses that interact with the Earth's atmosphere and the Earth's magnetic field. "These electromagnetic pulses propagate from the burst point of the nuclear weapon to the line of sight on the Earth's horizon, potentially covering a vast geographic region in doing so simultaneously, moreover, at the speed of light," said Wood. "For example, a nuclear weapon detonated at an altitude of 400 kilometers over the central United States would cover, with its primary electromagnetic pulse, the entire continent of the United States and parts of Canada and Mexico." The commission, in its work over a period of several years, found that EMP is one of a small number of threats that has the potential to hold American society seriously at risk and that might also result in the defeat of U.S. military forces. "The electromagnetic field pulses produced by weapons designed and deployed with the intent to produce EMP have a high likelihood of damaging electrical power systems, electronics and information systems upon which any reasonably advanced society, most specifically including our own, depend vitally," Wood said. "Their effects on systems and infrastructures dependent on electricity and electronics could be sufficiently ruinous as to qualify as catastrophic to the American nation." World Net Daily Addendum - Off the Cuff: EU-Iranian Negotiations Falter, Iran Warns US The United States has been openly critical of Iran's refusal to give up their nuclear arms program and this fact does not sit well with the Iranian spiritual leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Ali Khamenei has recently offered up some harsh words to America. "America is evil and rude. They need to be punched in the mouth," stated Ali Khamenei. "By punched in the mouth I mean that we need to continue to enrich uranium, build nuclear weapons, get them in the hands of as many terrorists as we can and assist them in detonating them in the northeastern United States. Boston, actually. Inside of Fenway Park. Probably in early April of 2006, but I will get back to you to firm up that date." These remarks have come on the heels of a breakdown in negotiations between the European Union and Iran. The EU was prepared to offer Poland, Austria and Northern France to the Iranians in exchange for a "pinkie-promise" to discontinue their nuclear weapons program. From the outset of talks, the Iranians had made it clear that they would accept no less than Italy, Monaco and Finland. "Northern France? What the hell is that?" asked one Iranian official. "Thanks, but no." Reacting to Ali Khamenei's remarks, Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer has warned President Bush to avoid a confrontation with Iran. Ms. Boxer labeled Khamenei's remarks "benign at worst" and went on to say that they "were so vague as to be applicable to almost anything." The President has not released an official response to Ali Khamenei's threats, but sources close to Mr. Bush say that he has been "mumbling something about a 'good old-fashioned Texas a**-whuppin' all weekend."
