As he tried to escape the scene, the terrorist stopped long enough to plunge his knife into the chest of an elderly pedestrian. Emergency resuscitation efforts by ambulance crews failed.
Despite his own wounds, the police officer managed to shoot the attacker several times. Another passerby then overpowered the injured terrorist. >>>>>
While there is no doubt that stabbing a man in the chest is an act of terror; this short article uses the word terror/terrorist four times to identify a criminal act. The problem is that the word ‘terror’ or ‘terrorist’ is not typically used by any newspaper around the world for individual crimes against another. The same newspaper does not report Israeli-on-Arab or Jew-on-Muslim attacks as acts of terror. This kind of bias only helps to create a further divide of the people and is a dangerous precedent in reporting.
Without realizing it, it has become common place to label anything an Arab or Muslim does, alleged or actual, as an act of terror. This type of journalism allows for even non-Muslims who are against the Israeli apartheid and global agenda to continue to hold disdain for those Israel considers its ardent enemies – Arabs and Muslims. Tsk, tsk.

British security sources confirmed that such a link had been discovered in several cases. They noted the contradiction between people supposedly devoted to theocracy and Islamic fundamentalism and their use of child pornography. “It shows that these people are very confused,” a source said. “Here they are hating Western decadence but actually making use of it and finding that they enjoy this stuff.” >>>>>
It looks like the UK is getting desperate with their accusations and smears against Muslims. It’s interesting that much of the porn is produced in Israel and consumed by Western men. Maybe it’s true, that terrorists are using such tactics–but not necessarily Muslim terrorists. Also interesting in the article is that it doesn’t mention Muslims associated with ‘terrorism’ ever being convicted of child pornography. Come to think of it, the overwhelming amount of Muslims arrested for terrorism are not convicted of terrorism either. This bit of trash produced by the media is designed to continue smearing Muslims. This tactic worked when used against Catholic priests; many parishioners shied away from the church. This is effort is partly designed to get people from leaving leaving the mosques to join secularism–the bastien most easily susceptible to governmental abuse disguised as a ‘free society’ — and the push for child-porn is actually welcomed and consumed by the general public. By now, more people than ever, Muslim and non-Muslim, Westerner and non-Westerner, are becoming more aware of the trash that governments use in order to secure an advantage to remove elements of a system they call democratic and just, when it’s anything but a just democracy.

The PKK has been fighting for Kurdish autonomy in southeastern Turkey since 1984. The violence has killed at least 37,000 people. The PKK is considered a terrorist group by Turkey, the United States and the European Union. >>>>>

Father John Dear, a Roman Catholic peace activist, advised the devout military lawyer that he could “save lives” if he resigned and spoke out against the behaviour of the Penatagon. “I don’t know how else the creeping rot of the commissions and the politics that fostered and continued to surround them could be exposed to the curative powers of the sunlight,” said Lt Col Vandeveld. “I care not for myself; our enemies deserve nothing less than what we would expect from them were the situations reversed. More than anything, I hope we can rediscover some of our American values.” >>>>>

Just prior to the attack, the student says she noticed graffiti stating “kill the Muslims” written on the restroom mirror. In previous incidents, the student was reportedly called a “terrorist” by another person on campus and found anti-Muslim graffiti and a Nazi swastika scrawled in her locker. >>>>>

“A terrorist cell was arrested five days ago and will be referred to the judicial authorities for its links with the Israeli intelligence services,” Saleh was quoted as saying by the official Saba news agency. He said the group operated under the “slogan of Islam.” >>>>>
This is not receiving the kind of attention that it should. If accurate, then this has grave implications towards the world re-looking at what really happened in 9-11 and 7-7, to name a couple of dates whereby many around the world believed those who were accused did not commit the atrocities.
President Saleh deserves a great deal of credit for not attempting to blackout this information, which is usually done by many West and Western-propped government officials.

The president has suggested that India posed no threat to Pakistan and called the Islamist militants fighting in Indian Kashmir “terrorists.”
Both views run counter to those long held by Pakistan’s powerful military which defines India as an existential threat and in the past has given its backing to the militants in Kashmir. >>>>>
Both views also run counter to elementary logic. It looks like Bush helped get exactly the ‘right’ (pun intended) person into power. These comments may actually contribute to attempt at dividing loyalties the Kashmiris and Pakistanis.

The commercial shows American standup comedian Jeff Durham holding a skeleton puppet with a white cloth around its head, which demands that the audience keeps quiet and says: “Silence! I kill you!”
The ASA said Khan had complained that this was offensive to the Islamic religion, and created the impression that all Muslims were terrorists who would kill to get people to be quiet. >>>>>

The Syrian state news agency has said Saturday’s bomb attack in the outskirts of Damascus was carried out by an Islamist suicide bomber.
The agency also says the attacker entered Syria from an unnamed neighbouring Arab country…
No group has claimed responsibility for the blast, although the Syrian interior minister, Gen Bassam Abdul-Majid, called it a cowardly “terrorist act”. >>>>>

New Delhi: The All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawar (AIMMM) condemned the bomb blast this afternoon in Mehrauli area of Delhi in which reportedly four precious lives were lost and dozens were injured.
Offering condolences to the nation and the families of the innocent victims, Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan, head of the AIMMM, the umbrella body of Indian Muslim organisations, demanded that the security agencies should meticulously probe this blast and refrain from immatature comments and leaks as seen earlier. >>>>>

The MKO, whose main stronghold is in Iraq, is blacklisted by much of the international community, including the United States.
The group fled to Iraq in 1986, where it was protected by Saddam Hussein and where it helped the Iraqi dictator fight Iran and suppress Shiite and Kurd uprisings in the country.
Since the 2003 US invasion of Iraq, the group has been strongly backed by neo-conservatives in the United States, who also argue for the MKO to be taken off the US terror list. >>>>>
If a group is still ON the US Terror List; has already been proven to have committed murder; and yet is “strongly backed by neo-conservatives in the United States; doesn’t this amount to treason,” supporting terrorist organizations, etc. Should the American ‘neocons’ guilty of this also be held on federal charges — the same charges that any average Citizen Joe would face if helping, let’s say a pro-Islamic group – be they terrorist or not?
Shouldn’t also be the purging of neo-conservatives and all they stand for? Should not their foreign allies be considered enemies of the U.S.? Isn’t this true patriotism to stand up to this? Or is it because they are a convenient tool against Islamic countries, “all is quite alright?”
This amounts to them being part of an international ‘good ol’ boy’ network. They are at the stage now that Osama bin Laden was at when he was working for the CIA. They should expect to be repaid in kind after these neocons are done with their services.

Zeev Sternhell is a political scientist internationally known for his work on the history of fascism. Police suspect the assailants who planted the pipe bomb that lightly wounded him early Thursday were extremists targeting him because of his outspoken criticism of Israeli settlers. >>>>>
The word “Muslim” does not exist in this article. Therefore, neither does the word “terrorist” when describing the bomber(s); or “Jewish.” For those around the Western World who may take a passive read and overlook the purposeful lack of association of these terms.
This Jewish professor, who spoke out against Jewish Israeli settlers – the ‘terrorists’ in question – is a victim and survivor of a ‘terrorist bombing.’ This is more accurate and has equal impact to stories that arise even a suspicion of Muslim involvement; whether or not that suspicion was valid or not.

Following up on yesterday’s myriad of reports regarding what did or didn’t happen to a US Predator Drone near the South Waziristan border, Pakistan’s military has officially admitted to recovering the wreckage of a downed US drone near the border which suffered a malfunction and crashed, finally putting to rest speculation about the incident…
And the mysterious group which claimed credit for Saturday’s suicide bombing in Islamabad has issued a new message in which it threatens to target other Pakistanis who cooperate with “Americans and NATO crusaders.” This message, like the previous one, was delivered to the media over the phone, and in English. Pakistani officials said the preliminary report pointed to Waziristan, the target of America’s recent strikes. >>>>>
Two bombs (pun intended) are disclosed in this story and won’t be in the mainstream media.:
1. If you really want to know who sent the drone, start looking at countries that have drones and are not mentioned in the story.
2. The mysterious group is no doubt a Western terrorist organization pretending to be a Pakistani terrorist group.

“Credible reports suggest terrorists may be targeting journalists, including Australians, in Afghanistan,” an updated travel advisory from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade says.
“We continue to advise Australians not to travel to Afghanistan. If you are [there], you should consider departing.” >>>>>
The real question is “Are the journalists being warned for their own safety, or to safeguard information that would further incriminate Western occupation forces?” Why only journalists and not others? If the Afghanis were unruly and backward, would not any foreigner be in harm’s way?

Some of these men have subsequently been released following trials in Afghanistan, either because they were found to be innocent or they were judged guilty but freed because of time already served in Guantánamo, but it’s disturbing to note that these trials are regarded by outside observers as largely perfunctory affairs that have, shockingly, drawn on “evidence” provided by the U.S. authorities, even though that same information was used to clear them for release from Guantánamo. Such is the discomfort about the situation in Afghanistan itself that President Karzai recently formed a commission to look at the men’s cases. The commission approved further releases, but there is little about the process that would reassure an objective outsider that any of these men are f,inally receiving anything that resembles justice. >>>>>

Many Germans remain shocked that the men had ordinary German upbringings, unlike the radicals who were born in Arab lands and moved to Germany to plot the September 11, 2001, suicide attacks on New York and Washington using hijacked airliners.
Police around Europe say “home-grown” terrorism has become as big a threat as that from radical immigrants. >>>>>
This will eventually become Germany’s reason for attempting to squash any further spread of Islamic influence, and even immigration by Muslims, especially Turks to their country. They will get the support by parading these guys around, and continuing to gain support for their convictions in the minds of the German people. It’s no wonder that an over-whelming amount of the failed cases of terrorism are against young folk in their 20’s. Aside from being so feeble-mindedly ‘impressionable’ to acts of terror; they seem to be able to carry out acts that are not within the scope of 20 year-olds you know? They usually have these grandiose plans, and virtually always foul up by the most simple detail. Doesn’t that strike one as strange?

He said today: “Why and when was al-Arian important? Why did a rogue prosecutor in Virginia seek to keep him in jail? The answers go back more than a decade, when Israel’s Likudniks in the United States, such as [journalist] Steve Emerson, were working feverishly to undermine the Oslo peace process. … Al-Arian (unlike any terrorist I’ve heard about) was vigorously trying to communicate with our government and its leaders. He was being successful, making speeches to intelligence and military commanders at MacDill AFB’s Central Command, inviting the FBI and other officials to attend meetings of his groups. People were beginning to listen and to wonder why only one side of the Middle East debate was heard here. >>>>>

CONTROVERSIAL new movie Shoot On Sight is about an innocent Muslim mistaken for a terrorist and shot dead on the London Tube by the Met Police. The fictional script closely mirrors the fate of Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes, who was killed by armed cops at Stockwell Tube station after the 7/7 bombings in 2005. Producer Aron Govill says: “We are not taking sides, just making a dramatic thriller and trying to explore racial bias.” >>>>>
It seems like there are those who “can’t handle the truth.”

Mohammad Momin Khawaja never intended to bomb civilians in the United Kingdom, but was willing to fight alongside Islamists in Afghanistan, his defence team told an Ontario Superior Court in Ottawa on Tuesday. >>>>>
If his lawyer is right, this makes him a freedom fighter and not a criminal. Many well-paid ‘freedom-fighters’ and their leaders, fighting for the War on Terror, should have a International War Crimes charge sheet ready and waiting for them.
