Well the Chinese have really outdone themselves this time, by pirating the whole of NEC!
Evidence seized in raids on 18 factories and warehouses in China and Taiwan over the past year showed that the counterfeiters had set up what amounted to a parallel NEC brand with links to a network of more than 50 electronics factories in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
Now that's a scam.
On Tuesday night anguished families wailed as they watched the last moments of their loved ones’ lives unfold on screen at the world premiere of United 93, by the British writer-director Paul Greengrass, the first Hollywood film about the September 11, 2001, hijackings.
...“It’s horrific to see my brother, Edward, on the screen, knowing what is going to happen,” Gordon Felt said. “It’s shattering, but it needs to be. This is a violent story.” Read more from The Times; James Bone in New York.All evidence suggests that the terrorists’ relatives were left entirely out of the creative process, an action which goes a way toward revealing the film’s hagiographic bias (how easy it then becomes to turn victims into heroes and adversaries into monsters) and points up the general ridiculousness of involving the families in the first place (too many cooks spoiling an already rancid broth).

Yeh, these 'adveraries' terrorised a plane full of people and ended their lives prematurely. Fuckwit.
Socialists all over the country were left angered by Bush's unequivocal condemnation of terrorist acts.
A Socialist told DrunkenBlogging:
This is typical! Bush "apparently" condemning terrorists acts? This is just a front for Bush's war on stuff and that. By the way the war was illegal, Abu Ghraib, and Guantanamo. The real threat is Americas and Bushes. Listen to me, listen to me.
Sunny at Pickled Politics has a post, and he says of Lenin, calling for the Maoist rebels to take Nepal;
I thought the call was incredibly uninformed and totally dismissed the 10s of 1000s of people the Maoists have killed and terrorised over the years.
Lenin of Twatology is diametrically opposed to freedom of democracy. He wants a Communist state through whatever means.
"...after pressure from faith leaders the Home Office has agreed to turn the existing toilets 90 degrees at HMP Brixton in London."
This will cost hundreds of thousands of £'s. Money that could be spent on education, health, anything but preventing Muslim criminals from shitting at the wrong fucking angle.
Please. In fairness Rastarfarians should be supplied Ganja, Sikhs their swords, Satanists young virgins... Come on, other wise that's religionist, you know favouring one's religion over another.

Update: I've been thinking. If these are pious Muslims, then maybe they should be transported to an Islamic country where the law of Allah is implemented in the penal code...
From the Qu'ran, [WARNING: Very Graphic] Here's a an image of the punishment and here's a video of it in action. Inshallah.
5:33, The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter; [Anyone who disbeliefs in Islam and speaks against it is considered to be waging war against Allah and his messenger]
Ok so I'm reading my Evening Standard, catching up on some politics, reading Andrew Gilligan's take on the rise of the far right. Bits of this appear to be punctuated with swear words. No, not Gilligan. Sounds like somebody has Tourettes syndrome. Try to ignore it. (We Londoners are very adept at this).
The guy in front of me, big guy over 6 foot, well built, seems to be swearing. But he's also spitting on the ground. And he's looking tensed up and aggressive. This ain't tourettes. This is a nutjob. Nothing so out of the ordinary really, this is South London after all.
He's facing away from me, thank god. He seems to be goading people for a fight, "You heard me! You cunt! Come on then!". Which to be honest, actually pissed me off a bit. I thought I better move, otherwise I run the risk of getting angry of saying something back.
So I start to pack up my things for a bit of a getaway. Then my heart jumped out of my chest. I saw a flash of large blade being concealed from the front of his hand. Oh fuck. He looks like he's going to use it. That's the scariest part of it. And he's like no more than 1.5 fucking metres, between us, and there's no obstacles, just free space. He's standing up, I'm sitting down.
I attempted to alert the person sitting next to me, but they just tried to ignore me, they was reading their paper. I thought I have to leave, NOW! However, I thought I NEED to tell other people. A girl looked at me, must have seen the look on my face, said what is it. I quickly leant forward, and whispered so that nutjob wouldn't hear, "He's a got knife".
News like that travels pretty fast, I must say. I legged it into the carriage. I looked back and there were 10 people right behind me! The general consensus that we ought to pull the alarm. So it's nearly stopped at the station, so I went for it....
Then the driver says "Right, the trains not quite at the platform and somebody has pulled the emergency alarm, so for the next 2 minutes the doors will be locked". What?! I pulled the fucking alarm since there's a nutter with a knife, and we're at the station, locked in. Great.
Ok so so the guy who was sitting opposite me, is on the phone to the police, giving real time description, and someone said he's now blocking people, not letting them get away. Oh shit.
Then he turns, looks straight at me and starts coming towards me, fast. I thought if he has it in for me (he might have figured I alerted everybody) then this could be it. I didn't particularly fancy getting stabbed. Not with a hangover like this.
So again a went further down, he's getting closer, I said "Ok that man has a knife, pull the emergency lever get the doors open!". So we ran out. I ran up to the stairs, I saw him coming out. I wanted to alert people but I thought I don't have time. So I watched from the stairs, he got away.
So here I am, I've just spoken to the police. And thank god, they've got hold of him already :)
Another form of extreme demonstration as Professor Greaves calls it. Vive la resistance! Suicide bomber slaughters innocent civilans, injures many others.
Of course for many Islamists (and many on the despicable-left) feel that there is no such thing as an innocent Israeli... Fucking scum. All human civilan casualties should be avoided. End of. Same as Iraq. There is NO justifcation for the targetting of civilians. It's just inhuman.
I know Islamists/lefties will come back with Israel is causing an on going "genocide" against the Palestinian people. Which is just delusional. Though I back Israel ideologically and emotionally; they have got to stop giving the terrorists 'justification' for their actions. Give them their "state" alongside Israel. Pull out of more areas. Secure the borders.
The third annual "Pig Olympics" have been held in Russia where the pigs might not have flown but they did show their prowess in several activities.
Some 12 piglets from seven countries took part in the games, which included pig-racing, pig-swimming and pigball.
Pig enthusiasts laid bets on the competitors in each event, at an exhibition centre near Moscow.
Each pig, dressed in a numbered bib, was carried squealing into the arena for each event.
Now come on, who seriously expected Mohammed to be shown by Comedy Central after those nutjobs went nuts all around the world!? I completely understand the anger towards Comedy Central for not being the tower of strength we had all hoped.
But at least a consolation, a letter is reproduced here that was sent out on behalf of Comedy Central with an honest acknowledgement that the reason for the censorship was fear of violence. At least they're honest.
It makes a change from the utterly spineless epithet from CNN: We have chosen not to show the cartoons of Mohammed out of respect from Islam. [Like fuck you did you spineless fucks!]
Let's take an example. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has made a series of well documented speeches in the past few days. All the news outlets have mentioned this in some form or another. What get's me is the way that political bias pespires from the words of the lefty press.
I think the most signifcant thing he has said in these speeches is that
Israel will be annihilated.. and said that it was a "rotten, dried tree" that will be annihilated by "one storm".
Considering that the Iranian president has just claimed Iran is now in the nuclear club, and he says that a soverign state is to be soon elimanted. Maybe that's just me and my silly Western sensibilities distorting my viewpoint.
The notoriously lefty New York Time's headline is
Iran's Leader Calls Israel a 'Constant Threat' followed by the following paragraph
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said today that Israel is a "constant threat," and predicted that the Jewish state is on the verge of "elimination."
Preducted! Damn. I wonder how Israel could possibly be annhiliated?
You can almost see the lefties nodding quitely in agreement with the NYT little piece. The NYT journalist happily tells us the truth about the situation.
Mr. Khamenei denounced the policies of the United States in Iraq and Afghanistan and its support for Israel. "The bitter taste of liberal democracy which the United States wanted to present as a solution has hurt the Islamic nations," he said, as he pointed to prisoner-abuse scandals at Abu Ghraib and Guantánamo.
Now what lefty couldn't agree with that one?!
Let's take a peek and see what the holy book says about other religions shall we?
Fight against Christians and Jews "until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low." 9:29
Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. 9:5
I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger. 8:12
Some real beauties from the Intolerance section of the Skeptic's Annotated Quran
Click on this. Now click on The Sun front page saying Bloody Nasty People... Then click your browsers back button. What happens?
Update: Problem - the BNP is the only British party to speak candidly about the threat of Islamism. How to vote? I can't.
A French man [now here's a case where I'd support the BBC using 'quotes'] has been jailed for 25 years for burning a teenage girl to death in a rubbish depot, in a crime which shocked the nation.
Sohane Benziane, 17, was killed in October 2002 on a rundown housing estate in Vitry-sur-Seine, near Paris. Jamal Derrar, 22, was convicted of torture and barbarity leading to unintentional death.
Outrage over Sohane's death led to a wave of feminist protest in France and the creation of a new campaign group.
The organisation campaigns, in particular, for the rights of women from ethnic and religious minorities such as Sohane, a Muslim of North African origin.
Quelle surprise. Let's look at what the holy book says about women shall we?
Try the looking up Women at the Skeptics Annotated Qu'ran
Some nuggets such as:
A woman is worth one-half a man. 2:282
Lewd women are to be confined to their houses until death. 4:15
You don't have to be modest around your wives or your slave girls "that your right hand possess." 23:6
An Israeli missile has struck a car in Gaza City, killing at least two of its occupants and wounding two others, Palestinian officials say
Fucking hell, is no life sacred to those Zionists?
Most people would probably read other news having read the headline and the leading paragraph. The unitiated would think great Israel killing more Palestinians gain...
Except I know that some BBC journalists are hopelessly biased and cry when Palestinian terrorist leaders die.
So read on I did.
The attack reportedly killed militants from the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade.
Ok so they killed two terrorists. So fucking what? What if Israel hadn't of done this? Perhaps these terrorists would have killed more random people with their peaceful rocket attacks and suicide bombings against civilian targets such as market places.
What the fuck? Are the BBC not sure? Perhaps they are being sensitive, after all Hamas leaders are bound to re-word this something akin to innocent Palestinian gets kidnapped by the Zionists.
Hamas are classed as a terrorist organisation even by the beaurocrats at the EU
Lets look at some other headlines form Google News. Note NONE use the 'apparently' quotes.
Though I can understand the BBC's caution. Below are some paraphrase's of the peaceful Charter of Hamas
"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it."
"The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up. "
"There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors."
"After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied in the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", and their present conduct is the best proof of what we are saying."Update: Well as I'm sure you're aware, DrunkenBlogging holds much sway in the offices of BBC and they have removed those damned quotes that irk me so much. The headline is now Israel police hold Hamas minister
We can all sleep safely in our beds.... until next time!
Yalda... a 17-year-old femme fatale who happily offered herself as “bait” in the kidnapping of Jewish Ilan Halimi, whose tortured body was found on wasteland... Yalda’s only moment of doubt came when she heard Halimi’s shrieks as he was carried away by thugs in balaclava helmets. “He screamed for two minutes, with a high-pitched voice like a girl,” she told investigators.
For years the Parisian establishment has quaked at the prospect of angry hordes invading their affluent heartland and last week that nightmare came true as gangs of hooded youths robbed and bludgeoned white students attending anti-government demonstrations.
Thoese damned "youths" again!
Disquiet about the spread of barbarism across the boulevard périphérique has been fuelled by the chilling story of Yalda.Thanks to Yalda’s charms, Halimi was imprisoned and tortured with acid and cigarette burns for more than three weeks in the heart of a council estate.
More than 30 neighbours in the building knew what was happening but said nothing about the crime, part of a worrying wave of attacks against Jews all over the country.
Besides Yalda, several women have been arrested in an investigation into their role in botched efforts to lure other Jewish men into “honey traps”.
“He wanted a Jew,” a girl called Audrey told police, referring to Youssouf Fofana, the charismatic leader of the Barbarians, who was listed by the girls in their telephone directories as “Youssouf the barbarian”.Another girl, 18-year-old Chahrazad Belayni, was doused with petrol by a suitor and set alight in November last year. She remains in a coma. In Marseilles in 2004, Ghofrane Haddaoui, a 23-year-old woman from the suburbs, was stoned to death by a gang of youths.
Youths = damned Neo-nazis surely?!
The choice of Halimi as a victim because he was Jewish was a particularly distressing component of the crime for a nation whose anti-semitic past included wartime collaboration in the transfer of Jews to the death camps.
