US opposes, UK says ''No'', EU pleads ''Don't'', the Whole World frowns - But Israel goes on building new houses ''Regardless''!
''American Bombers have joined Israel against us''.No american planes ever participated in any single raid. It showed how ferocious a lone-nation could fight 100s of 1000s and still win. Israel war planes took off, bombed a target and returned to load bombs and go off again. A mere 14 minutes was their turn around time.The Egyptian war planes were all destroyed on the groundd before a single plane took off. Israel planes flew below Radars, manned by Russians, and went in the direction the Egyptians were blind.No wonder the great bluffer General Nazzer of Egypt thought 1000s of american planes are flying in Israel Air Force. And the worst of all, "American Pilots are flying Israeli planes''.
Suppose, just suppose, the Arabs won and Israel lost in the 1967 war ?Would the Arabs have allowed Israel to survive as a Jewish nation in the region ? We normally, always with no exception, support the ''Weak'', the ''Under Dog'', the ''victim''.We detest the brash boaster, we ''will'' the bully to fall, we laugh and hoot when the bully is flat on the ground with mouth filled with sand ! Israel faced almost six Arab nations and we sided with Israel morally and prayed like the blazes for them.Now that Israel has turned ''bully'',
acting worse than the Nazi Adolf Hitler, our sympathy has turned towards the Palestinians. Are we mad or the damn Jews who are hated by all races for the last 2500 years ?Even William Shakespeare, 400 years back, depicted the Jews worthy of our utmost ''HATE''!!!
give the powers that be a means of shutting down views it disagrees with on any subject, even other than adult sexual content.It would also characterise opponents and critical supporters like us, as nerdy minority and/or perverts. The advent of Internet and modern dot com facilities have made our voices be heard loud and clear, silent we may be though!

Microsoft violated patent rights in developing the ''Office Word'' word processor.
Microsoft was selling the ''Office Word'' word processor for US$ 100.00
Now it cannot sell it anymore. They have to develop a new one.This week
This week a federal appeal court rejected Microsoft's appeal.
It confirmed the decision of a lower court.
Microsoft has to pay '' i 4 i '' a huge sum of $290 million in damages and interest.
They have violated the patent rights of the Toronto, Canada software company.
That company developed the ''XML editing technology''.
Microsoft used this technology to develop their word processor ''Office Word''.
Last year Microsoft was fined US$ 4 Billion by European Union for some
These shady practises have made millions of users hate Microsoft and its products.
That's why people are changing to other operating systems other than '' Windows ''.
People are going over to ''Ubuntu'' of Linux --- a rather difficult program, even though
they offer free download or send a free CD, on request, when postage of $ 2 or 3 is paid.
As for the word processor, we can use the JARTE word procesor.
its ''free'' and easy to download and install.
And use --- it works like a soft breeze.

JR Raphael, PC World, says ---
Facebook is cited in one out of every five divorce petitions.
Facebook Status: Divorced
The root of the problem should come as no surprise: Too many spouses are using Facebook for flirting -- or more.
"The most common reason seemed to be people having inappropriate sexual chats with people they were not supposed to," Mark Keenan, Divorce-Online's managing director, is quoted as saying.
The Telegraph suggests the sudden popularity of sites such as Facebook is somehow encouraging people to cheat on their spouses.
It doesn't take a genius to figure out that the problem isn't actually Facebook -- the problem is faithless spouses too stupid to realize they're leaving an electronic trail.
Cheating is cheating; Facebook is just a medium (albeit one that creates an easily findable path of breadcrumbs).
So, yes, if we're cheating slimeballs in the regular world, we'll also be cheating slimeballs in the virtual world. Otherwise, we're probably fine.
With all of that said, I'm sure it's only a matter of time until someone sues Facebook for "forcing them" to cyber-copulate with strangers.

Jesse Owens won 4 gold medals in German Olympics.
In Hitler's Nazi Germany Jesse Owens was felicitated and ignored in America.African-Americans Go From Being No Good At Sports To Being Only Good At Sports The late 1940s and '50s saw a role reversal unprecedented in the history of American sport.African-Americans—once thought incapable of physically competing against whites—began dominating playing fields. "Blacks have no chance against whites on the baseball diamond. They simply don't have what it takes to make the effort," Boston Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey told The Boston Globe in April 1947, echoing the nation's sentiments. Later he reversed saying, "Well, naturally, Robinson is out there running faster, jumping higher, and hitting the ball farther. Blacks are, if nothing else, more athletically gifted than whites. Sports is what they're good at." This changing viewpoint was soon echoed by notable sports figures, politicians, typical American citizens, Ku Klux Klan members. University of Kentucky basketball coach Adolph Rupp, who for years had refused to recruit black players because of their alleged unsuitability for athletics. After losing the 1966 NCAA Championship game to an all-black Texas Western team, however, Rupp said that the loss didn't surprise him."Blacks have a clear physical advantage over whites because their years of slavery made them genetically stronger and more athletic," Rupp said after the 72-65 defeat. "But they'll never be great doctors and lawyers. They don't have the mental capacity for something like that.""I'll put it this way," Rupp added. "We'll never see a black head coach, team owner, or president of the United States." Jesse Owens won 4 gold medals in the 1939 German Olympics.
Fist time an athlete won four golds. In Hitler's Nazi Germany Jesse Owens was invited into many homes and felicitated.But when Jesse Owens returned home to America, even the President Franklin Delano Roosevelt did not care to telephone and congratulate the man that brought fame to his country. So the White Americans have now voted a Black man as President.
Toronto gang member Sanjeev Kuhendrarajah has a criminal record for death threats that got him deported from Canada six years ago
tattooed, has a criminal record for death threats and
firearms possession that got him deported from Canada six
years ago, and is now, perhaps improbably, the articulate
and thoughtful spokesman for a boatload of Tamil
asylum-seekers trying to get to Christmas Island.Toronto gang member Sanjeev Kuhendrarajah
with criminal record, deported from Canada, is
now, spokesman for boatload of Tamil Refugees Let's think: ''will ordinary innocent Lankan Tamils select a criminal to speak
unless they too are criminals''.When will we Lankan Tamils select a leader without crimnal record or penchant for gun and violence We Lankan Tamils are ''ignorant fools'' in the eyes of the International Community as we had such a leader in the recent past

As a Man, as a Person, as a Human Being, Is There a Limit to Forgiveness ? Can We NOT Forgive This Basij soldier ?
His weapon against his people is ''R A P E'' ''Interviewing a former Iranian Basij militia member'' from BBC Forum: Snowblog by Lindsey HilsumFor months now, we’ve heard horrific stories of rape and abuse from Iran’s prisons. Since the election last June 2009, hundreds, maybe thousands, of opposition protestors have been beaten and jailed. Human rights groups have documented many reports of ''RAPE'' within the police stations and prisons. Now, for the first time, we’ve spoken to a member of the Basij militia – the group said to be responsible for many of the abuses.Basiji is a paramilitary volunteer militia founded by the Ayatollah Khomeini in November 1979.
However they are a "a loosely allied group of organizations" including ''those controlled by local clerics''.This UK asylum seeker, aged 27, is a member of Basij. Born into a deeply religious family, utterly loyal to the Islamic Revolution and above all to the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamanei. His Basij unit, was told months before the election, that the Supreme Leader had decreed that Ahmadinejad should win as President. Also was told to ignore choices and desires of voters and vote for Ahmadinejad on their behalf. They stole the ballot boxes with the votes of young people, who mainly voted for the opposition.They were armed with batons, cables and other weapons to attack protestors. His colleagues killed people on the streets. When about a hundred young people were arrested and put in shipping containers, Basij from the provinces were brought in.From the containers they heard the desperate cries of men and women, boys and girls, being raped by the Basij from outside the town. The date was 20 June. He gave BBC Forum the name of the police station where the assaults took place, and identified the mullah in charge of the basij in his city. BBC will not reveal any of the details which could identify him. BBC had authenticated the story. He refused to shake the hand of a woman, another sign of his religious background.His story confirms the reports BBC have had from victims and human rights groups.They say ''RAPE'' has been used all over Iran, in the brutal months since the June election. “I am ashamed in front of people, even to say that I was mistaken, and I am ashamed in front of my religion,” he said. “I committed crimes, knowingly and unknowingly. Now I’m left with my conscience punishing me for what I did.” During my lengthy walk of seven decades and two years of life many a story of distress have fallen within my range. This confession is one of the most brutal --- but knowing for certain that false certificates and documents are vital to asylum seekers --- am wondering how truthful is this Basiji youngster ? Isn't he a potential ''mole'' of Iran to create trouble in Uk ?Charges of Human Rights violations against President of Iran in International Criminal Court in Hauge, Netherlands ?
We have 46 chromosomes, 23 from the Mother and another 23 from the Father, and therefore 'Man' is NOT more than equal to 'Woman'
Human Chromosomes Please do not misconstrue my writings as 'anti' religion, church, or even against 'men' in general.
Am into search for ultimate truth of what we are and what's around us. That's all. Am a common, average man --- may be even more stupider than you. But will not admit to that truth. Never.Let's see, for example, women are generally spoken of as inferior lot or love machines with beautiful figures and pretty faces that arouse men to be sexually active. Yes, we do admit some women make use of their advantage and weakness of male by dressing provocatively and cause trouble for males and themselves too.
We will leave those scum alone and focus on the soft, kind, patient, tender mothers and nurses of human kind we all know and love. After all our first 'love' is our 'Mother'. We all know how we are made. The 'love making' of our father and mother --- a sperm from father enters an egg in mother to fertilize and grow day by day. Then the miracle happens --- and 'am', the 'me', this 'myself', is born after about 38 weeks --- or in other words approximately 40 weeks from the last normal menstrual period of our Mother. On reading further we found a nice little piece of information that most 'Men' and the 'Church' kept hidden from the general common man. That's you and I.All living things are made of 'Chromosomes' --- shall we say, the base of 'Genes' and 'DNA' of which we are all made up of and we do have a general idea of what they are. They say, a Fruit Fly has 8 chromosomes, Earthworm 36, Rabbit 44, Hares 48, Elephants 56, the bloody Donkey 62, the faithful Dog 78, the beautiful swimmer in a tank Goldfish 100-104, and the insignificant ordinary Kingfisher has a total of 132 chromosomes. Then what about us, the humans ? Oh, here lies the crux of the matter. We have 22 different types, each present as two copies, and two sex chromosomes. That gives a total of 46 chromosomes --- Two sets of chromosomes --- one set from the Mother and another from the Father. And so, from where did the 'chauvinist' Male get the idea that 'He' is more than equal to his 'Female' companion ? Probably in 'His' false mental make up --- That seeped into every organized religion !

Iran, slowly and surely reaching out to Israel --- Test Firing Missile --- to Carry Nuclear Warhead that's Being Built Secretly
Iran, slowly and surely reaching out to Israel --- Test Firing Missile --- to Carry Nuclear Warhead that's Being Built SecretlyEarly this morning we heard BBC say --- Iran has tested a missile.
The missile has sufficient range to reach Israel. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran is a rouge leader, equal to that of North Korea.
He is an engineer and teacher from a poor background. He has been criticized for his disregard for human rights --- 1... Women stoned to death
2... Teenagers hung to deathHe rationed petrol in 2007 to reduce fuel consumption.
A failed mission. Shows his ineptness.He cut the interest rates private and public banking facilities could charge.
Another economic fiasco.He supports Iran's nuclear energy program. Time and time again he was caught telling lies to UN and Weapons Inspectors.Even recently he denied publicly that Iran has a new secret nuclear site undeclared to UN. When Obama, Gordon Brown and Nicolas Sarkozy showed him satellite photos of the site, sheepishly hung his head in shame. How could an engineer be ignorant of modern methods of detections through use of satelitte ! He wants Israel to wiped off the map.He denies ''the Holocaust'' --- the 7 million Jewish people gased to death by Adolf Hitler --- ever happened.[Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, apologised to Jews for the Holocaust, is noteworthy.] The racist president of Iran has had killed off some of the arrested ''election'' protestors. Such a dangerous man and his supporters must be watched narrowly for the good of the world.
Australian Senator The Honourable Penny Wong, Minister for Climate Change and Water declared ''Transparency is central''
Australian Senator The Honourable Penny Wong, Minister for Climate Change and Water declared ''Transparency is central''The Climate Change conference in Copenhagen is now deadlocked.China has roped in a few countries designated as G 77 and China = Group 77. These are said to be poor countries. In the group are Sudan and Saudi Arabia too. European Union and others have promised $7 billion in 3 years for poor countries to help in conversion to Climate Change. And this morning we heard Japan is chipping in with $10 billion in 3 years for poor countries.Today the big leaders are expected to arrive and hopefully unravel the 'deadlock' spurred on by some smaller and poor countries. Are we digressing from dear Penny Wong's ''Transparency is Central'' declaration ? Penny was born in Malaysia and has experience in Brazil and other Asian countries. And she seems to know, as we do, generally monies or goods donated to small and poor nations end up in the pockets and homes of ministers and high officials of the nation. Hopefully the clarion call of Climate Change Minister of Australia would echo in the Conference Hall when the top leaders enter.Incidentally, Copenhagen is the home of two wonderful men that entertained children the world over. One the ancient story teller: Hans Christian Anderson.And the other: Danny Kaye, the Hollywood Film Actor, UN Roving Ambassador, a decent man in an indecent city.Danny Kaye acted out many of the wonderful stories of Hans Christian Anderson. We, as children, began to laugh as we saw the figure of Danny Kaye on the screen; even before he uttered a single word.That's entertainment par excellence.

Australian diplomats ask ''Gem Smuggler Prevention'' unit NOT TO USE ITS POWERS, to make money for Mugabe and his cronies.
Rio Tinto is an Australian business institution --- It holds shares in a Zimbabwe mining firm.
Australian diplomats are busy influencing Zimbabwe government's departments NOT to use ''Prevetion of Gem Smuggling'' powers. Everyone knows of the ''election stealing'' president of Zimbabwe : Robert Mugabe.
We all have read of how Robert Mugabe was stripped of the honourary doctorates given him 20 years ago by western Universities.
The world has watched this wretched man murder 10s of 1000s of opposition members and render 100s of 1000s homeless during the last election campaign.
Even then he lost the election and had to resort to trickery and ballot box stealing and intimidation of all opposition members to hold on to power. His land Zimbabwe holds 2 World Records:
1... For ''World's Highest Inflation Rate''
2... For ''World's Lowest Mortality Rate''The rate of inflation is such that an ordinary bannana is sold for Zimbabwe Dollar 2,000.00 !
Would you believe that ?
And the 100.00 dollar currency note has no value ---
Mugabe has printed the ''Billion Dollar'' note !
And in Zimbabwe most children have only one meal a day.
And they all go to sleep at night on an ''empty stomach'' !! Thinking of those poor children turns our stomach whilst having our daily dinner.
UN, US, UK and many other nations have placed sanctions on Zimbabwe in the hope of solving this long dragging ''horrible government''. However, Australian diplomats are influencing ''Gem Smuggler Prevention'' unit,a government institution, not to use its powers, so as to make money for Robert Mugabe and his cronies.This one facet of Kevin Rudd's government we detest ! Wonder what the high flying moralist Kevin Rudd has to say of this tragic double entendre diplomacy of Australia ?
Would it be a pipe dream to imagine blacks and poor would be treated better in a rich and powerful nation in the 21st Century ?

If you hire a lawyer, the chances are you won't be sentenced to death in Houston.
University of Denver Criminologist Scott Phillips reviewed 504 capital indictments over three decades in Harris County, Texas, and found that defendants who hired lawyers for the entire trial were never sentenced to death -- and were more likely to be acquitted.
The results of his study, published over the summer in the Journal of Criminal Law & Criminology, are truly stunning. Since nearly all defendants facing the death penalty in Harris County were poor, Phillips argues that his results further demonstrate the arbitrariness of capital punishment. If a defendant's family and community is able to pool resources to hire an attorney, the paid attorney might be better equipped to investigate a case or to bring bargaining power to the table against a district attorney.
He makes clear that his findings aren't an indictment of appointed attorneys, but of the system that straddles those attorneys with thin resources in a death penalty case. Something clearly went wrong for results this drastic. In other words the poor are at risk in Texas, US of America --- Most Blacks are poor and uneducated in this rich nation.Remember the two young blacks who were tied to a pick-up and dragged for miles and then dumped alive into a river by a klu klux klan member. Would it be a pipe dream to imagine blacks and poor would be treated better in a rich and powerful nation in the 21st Century ?
