Please note this article from the left-wing blog 'Terrorism-News'
What an absolute crock of shit.
Are FOX employee’s innocent bystanders or an integral part of the American war machine? That may turn out to be an important question now that 2 FOX workers have been captured by a group of Palestinian militants.
It would be hard, if not impossible to draw a line of separation between the US military and FOX News. Their anchors may shun the camouflage fatigues and jack-boots, but that is where the difference ends. FOX is a fully-integrated cog in the corporate/state media apparatus; faithfully reiterating the official statements of Pentagon Big-wigs and administration powerbrokers. Their “embedded” news team provides the splashy graphics and right wing chatter which energize their base and marshal public support for American aggression. They carefully create a narrative which makes deliberate acts of unprovoked warfare appear necessary and (even) humanitarian.
No one has violated the basic standards of journalistic integrity more consistently than FOX News. Their unwavering support for the war in Iraq demonstrates their blatant disregard for professional evenhandedness and neutrality...
Note that the 'source' for this is the nutty left wing site frequented by Noam Chomsky and other assorted lunatics has pulled the article.
This article has been withdrawn at the request of the author.
Meanwhile Glenn Greenwald attempts to smear the right-wing blogosphere as having
fundamentally changed the American national character in ways that are as dangerous and counter-productive as they are morally bankrupt.I told you! Those conservatives are EVIL! Unlike the left of course who are of course morally superior....
Reason: because the left don't have sense of humour. They assume when people say outrageous things that they are always deadly serious (because they themselves are always deadly serious and have a problem with humour).
Look at this high resolution picture of the ambulance - notice the rusting, and the round circle in the middle is exactly the same spot normally reserved for the conical ventilation on Red Cross ambulances. There are numerous holes in the roof chassis.
Zombie currently does not have access to his pc at the moment, though he provides us an update via the comments at LGF;
The most interesting email I have gotten about this ambulance thing came from a guy who works in a junkyard!
His job is to stack cars on top of each other, usually with a big forklift. He says all he does all day is stack and unstack cars. So he knows exactly what kind of damage is done to vehicles from being stacked.
He said he was 100% absolutely positive that the ambulance had been stacked in a salvage yard for at least six months. He said he recognized the type of damage immediately: the gashes, dents, etc. on the roof are EXACTLY what happens when cars are stacked. He's seen it a million times. And the rust indicates at least one winter outdoors, after the gashing and scratching.
Another update I plan to implement when I get access to my computer again!

Update: More dodginess, this in regards to the 'Reuters vehicle struck by Israeli missile'
Again, when are they going to reflect the most recommended comments rather than the liberal-lefty ones they want up there? It should say "No stability with Hezbollah still in existence"
... And more BBC-Pro-HizBollocks with Alison over at Making Headlines
where the BBC has a gushing about an ordinary villager - who's father belongs to the Hizbollah movement (I suppose yould could describe the Nazi party as a movement)
A police source said that the suitcase contained everything that would be needed to make an explosive device.
A news blackout has surrounded the aftermath of the arrests last week while detectives question 23 suspects at two London police stations. The discovery was made by specialist search units, which have been scouring King’s Wood for nearly a week in search of evidence of the conspiracy. The searches are expected to continue for up to six weeks.Police sources told The Times that the plot by Islamic extremists would have involved a version of triacetone triperoxide (TATP), which was used for the 7/7 bombings that killed 52 passengers on the London transport system last year.
Of course this was just a bunch of misguided teenagers who hadn't even purchased airline tickets! What possible harm could they do? In fact this is just a made up story to detract from Bliar's failings on Iraq, Lebanon, Plasticine, and stuff.
Nothing to see here, move along please.
Updated: The BBC has reported on some police sources saying Terror police find 'martyr tapes' These "police sources" are obviously hallucinating, as there actually is no Islamic terrorist threat.... And even if there was, it would be Blair's fault.
Also Germany has a brush in with what it appears to be an Islamic terror cell who left bombs on trains. This of course would be to protest at Germany's involvement in the Iraq war.
Now you may think, nothing wrong with that, they're just reflecting public opinion, right? Wrong. Here are the most recommended comments by the readers:

The only thing that will lead to stability, is the disarming of Islamist groups that seek the destruction of Israel.

Let's see. Hezbollah is still commited to the destruction of Israel.
Still commited to the return of a tiny patch of land called the Shebba farms. The UN says it is Syrian land. Syria says it is Lebanese, but refuses to officially sign over the land.
Once Shebba is returned, no doubt Hezbollah will find a tree or a hedge that's still 'occupied' by Israel, and thus retain their arms.
There is no way a fanatical Islamist group like Hezbollah is going to just retire itself.

Gilad Shalit (19), Ehud Goldwasser (31) and Eldad Regev (26). These are the three soldiers captured by the terrorists. Remember their names! And think of what they are going through. They have mothers and fathers who are CRYING over them. All you people who called for a ceasefire should be ashamed. How DARE you criticise Israel for its actions.

As long as Israel occupies the Arab land the durable ceasefire can not be achieved.
Well Israel UNoccupied Gaza & South Lebanon, and guess where the attacks came from?
The 'Palestinians' are hardly filling Israel with confidence about a West Bank pullout, given the complete mess they've made of being given Gaza.

"As long as the USA provides weapons (of mass destruction) to the Israelis there will never be peace in the region. Remember Jenin?"
wrote Samantha Knight
Truth is the first casualty. There was no Jenin massacre. The Israelis developed their own nuke. The US provides only 3% of Israeli GDP but 14% of Jordan's and 30% of the Palestinian authority's. Hezbollah was raining rockets on Israel. Few Arab leaders have the guts to abandon the rhetoric which too many Arabs believe.

No. There will be no stability with Hezbollah still in existance and with Iran and Syria fuelling extremism.

If the people in charge of the Middle East BBC news website had any will to represent opinion then Have Your Say would say something like "No stability with Hezbollah still in existence"?
Those bunch of bullies, racists, liars, loons and 'soft' jihadis at the Muslim Public Affairs Committe have succeeded in getting Indigo Wilson suspended from his job at Orange.
For saying a A-Z of tongue in cheek definitions including:
Palestinians - archetype 'victims' no matter how many teenagers they murder in bars and fast food outlets. Never responsible for anything they do – or done in their name - because of 'root causes' or ‘legitimate grievances’.
Islamophobic - anyone who objects to having their transport blown up on the way to work.
Free Speech is once again under attack by Muslim extremists - this time the soft jihadis at MPACUK.

Via Harrys Place and Pickled Politics
Certain Muslim extremists are determined to make Britain's public square a place where their views go unchallenged. One only has to remember the protests against the Danish cartoons. The cartoons suggested that Islam was not always a peace-loving religion and we ended up with protestors holding those extraordinary banners:
"Exterminate those who slander Islam."
"Behead those who insult Islam."
"Europe you will pay. Your 9/11 is on its way."
"Be prepared for the real holocaust."
ConservativeHome will do all it can to stand up for Inigo Wilson. His freedom of speech is our freedom of speech. Orange needs to know that."

The National Socialist Movement is a fighting movement. Germany's freedom - both at home and abroad - will never be secured by talk and negotiations; it must be fought for.
Our struggle will end only when this entity is obliterated. We recognize no treaty with it, no cease fire, and no peace agreements, whether separate or consolidated.
We vigorously condemn all plans for negotiation with Israel, and regard all negotiators as enemies
There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time.
The article below is reproduced from The News of the World.
An excellent no holds barred piece, a must read. "We" as in bloggers and commentors alike are already familiar with the arguments in this piece. But what is significant is that was published in one of Britains most popular Sunday newspapers - and by Lord Stevens
Lord Stevens is the former Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, and may be standing as Conservative candidate for Mayor of London. (Go on my son, kick out red Ken!).
WHEN will the Muslims of Britain stand up to be counted?
When will they declare, loud and clear, with no qualifications or quibbles about Britain's foreign policy, that Islamic terrorism is WRONG?
Most of all, when will the Muslim community in this country accept an absolute, undeniable, total truth: that Islamic terrorism is THEIR problem? THEY own it. And it is THEIR duty to face it and eradicate it.
To stop the denial, endless fudging and constant wailing that somehow it is everyone else's problem and, if Islamic terrorism exists at all, they are somehow the main victims.
Because until that happens the problem will never be resolved. And there will be more 7/7s and, sometime in the future, another airplane plot will succeed with horrific loss of innocent life.
Equally important, those British politicians who have seemed obsessed with pandering to, and even encouraging, this state of denial, must throw off their politically-correct blinkers and recognise the same truth—that Muslim terrorism in Britain is the direct responsibility of British Muslims.
If only they would follow the lead of Home Secretary John Reid, whose tough, pragmatic, clear-sighted approach has been a breath of fresh air. Only then can they properly work out how to tackle it.
For instance, every airport in Britain is in chaos over the plane bomb-plot alert as every passenger is subjected to rigorous security checks. Why? They take lots of time, lots of staff, and are extremely expensive.
I'm a white 62-year-old 6ft 4ins suit-wearing ex-cop—I fly often, but do I really fit the profile of suicide bomber? Does the young mum with three tots? The gay couple, the rugby team, the middle-aged businessman?
No. But they are all getting exactly the same amount and devouring huge resources for no logical reason whatsoever. Yet the truth is Islamic terrorism in the West has been universally carried out by young Muslim men, usually of ethnic appearance, almost always travelling alone or in very small groups. A tiny percentage, I bet, of those delayed today have such characteristics.
This targeting of airport resources is called passenger profiling—the Israelis invented it and they've got probably the safest airports and airlines in the world.
In all my years at the front line of fighting terrorism, one truth was always clear — communities beat terrorists, not governments or security forces. But communities can't beat terrorism unless they have the will to do so. My heart sank this week as I saw and read the knee-jerk reaction of friends and neighbours of those arrested in this latest incident, insisting it was all a mistake and the anti-terrorist squad had the wrong people.
I have no idea whether those arrested are guilty or not. But neither have those friends and neighbours. They spoke as if it was inconceivable such a thing could happen in their community; that those arrested were all good Muslims; that Islam is a religion of peace so no Muslim could dream of planning such an act.
But we heard the same from the family and friends of the 7/7 bombers, didn't we?
And the two young British Muslims who died as suicide bombers in Israel. Then there are the British Muslims known to have become suicide bombers in Iraq.
There is currently a huge, long-running and complex alleged Islamist bomb plot being tried at the Old Bailey. And a fistful of other cases of alleged Muslim terrorism plots such as the 21/7 London Underground case are also awaiting trial.
All this would suggest the blindingly obvious—that terrorism is a major problem for the Muslim community of Britain. Of course, there will be instant squealings that this is racism. It's not. It's exactly the same as recognising that, during the Northern Ireland troubles that left thousands dead, the IRA were totally based in the Catholic community and the UVF in the Protestant.
And that, most importantly, IRA terrorism only began to draw to a close when that Catholic community it was based in decided as a whole that it was no longer prepared to back violence as the only way forward. Interestingly, it was Catholic revulsion over republican terrorist atrocities such as Enniskillen and Omagh that fuelled that change.
Well, Muslim terrorism in Britain is based in, has its roots in, and grows in, our Muslim community. The madmen of 7/7 and other suicide bombings didn't hide among the Hindu communities, worship in the Sikh temples, recruit at Catholic churches, did they? It may be true that events in Iraq have angered sections of the Muslim community. I have no doubts, whatever Tony Blair says, that it was a catalyst. I also think it's entirely fair for Muslims, if they wish, to vocally oppose Britain's continuing involvement there.
I can recognise, too, that recent events in Lebanon inflame some people, and they want their voices of protest heard. The absolutely unacceptable problem is that this opposition is used by too many to turn a blind eye to, or excuse, terrorists in their midst.
Blasting a passenger airliner out of the sky, killing hundreds of innocent men, women and children, is NEVER acceptable. Under any circumstances. There is NEVER an excuse.
A terrible tragedy costing Muslim lives in Lebanon or Iraq or Afghanistan is never ever an excuse for terrorism here.
It is totally unacceptable, totally wrong. What one party perceives as a wrong, no matter how strongly they feel, does not, in turn, justify another wrong being done to avenge it.
And until every single member of the Muslim community believes that and preaches that—from an ordinary parent to imam or madrassa teacher—terrorism can't be beaten.
Politicians must accept this truth, and do something about it. One example would be to tackle this chaos at our airports and the passenger profiling I described earlier. Another must is to reconsider ID cards. The importance of knowing whether someone really is who they say they are has never been higher.
This must be combined with improved border controls, logging exactly who goes OUT of the country as well as who comes in should also be reconsidered, whatever the politically correct among us may say. The time terrorism suspects are kept in custody before charge has also caused dissent. Currently the maximum is 28 days—it may well be this should be reconsidered and, if necessary, raised again to, say, 42 days.
Plainly, Muslim terrorism isn't going away. We need to consider everything in our battle to defeat it. But that's the responsibility of all.Not least the community where, sadly for them, it is festering.
Shocking news report of the day:
Secondary school pupils placed in low-ability sets often feel stigmatised as "thick", a study suggests.No shit.
A new blog has appeared called Green Helmet Guy Blog. This is a take on the staged Hizballah propganada photos, in particular Green Helmet Guy, who has turned up in numerous different bomb sites. Here's a pic from the site:
There's a loads. It's quite riveting because this is what it's like on some British streets where Muslims live who have become "more religous" since September 11.
They interview another bloke who says on 9/11 there was party atmosphere over there.
"If we searched the entire world for a person more cowardly, despicable, weak and feeble in psyche, mind, ideology and religion, we would not find anyone like the Jew. Notice, I do not say the Israeli" - Hassan Nasrallah
"Anyone who reads the Koran and the holy writings of the monotheistic religions sees what they did to the prophets, and what acts of madness and slaughter the Jews carried out throughout history... Anyone who reads these texts cannot think of co-existence with them, of peace with them, or about accepting their presence, not only in Palestine of 1948 but even in a small village in Palestine, because they are a cancer which is liable to spread again at any moment..." - Hassan Nasrallah
“If they [the Jews] all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them world wide.” - Hassan Nasrallah
Update: DV of A Tangled Web has come to similar conclusions regarding The Left, Nazis, and Jews.
Bush has said the "this nation is at war with Islamic fascists"
Damned "asians". I tell you what, those Hare Krishnas might seem all friendly, peace and love, and claim to be vegetarian, but they could well be trying to kill you now.
I don't have a brain of my own you see, and rely on the media to form my opinions on the world around me. And so it is that "asians" are the biggest threat to Britain in mordern times.
On a more serious note, nothing to see here, move along please. This is all in my imagination, there is no "Islamic terror" threat. Also I'd like to point out that these "asian" men are actually made of straw, as well.
Thanks you've been great. Safe journey today folks.
Demonstration against Israeli Cricket Team
STOP ALL RACIST TOURS
How are the Israeli cricket team racist, you thick fucking pig shitted biggots? I cannot believe this. It's like shouting at somebody to stop shouting, or saying "Can you please stop swearing, you fucking cunt".
Quoting a commentor from Pickled Politics
Good news regarding a subject you touched on before. Despite the thuggish tactics of Osama Saeed and other bigoted hooligans and thugs, the Israeli cricket team have been able to play matches at an RAF base in Scotland with a cricket pitch. It is a shame that it came to this, and that thugs and hooligans of the Musliam Association of Britain threatened violence and disrupted the tour, but it is still a victory against their chauvinism, and in the face of such bully boy bigotry, a victory for Scotland and British society over the communalist bigots.Hear, hear!
THE Israel cricket team's visit to Scotland took another bizarre twist yesterday when they were forced to make a four-hour trip from Glasgow to RAF Lossiemouth air base to play their last two fixtures under armed guard.God bless the RAF!
Israel's opening match in the European Cricket Championships, proposed to be held entirely in Glasgow, had to be cancelled after organisers could not find a venue secure enough to satisfy police, with anti-war groups threatening to demonstrate against Israel's military action in Lebanon.
About 100 protestors attended each of Israel's matches on Saturday and Sunday at New Anniesland, but Glasgow Academicals refused to sanction the use of the ground on week days because the pavilion houses a nursery school, and further protests - combined with a 500-strong police presence - would have disturbed the children.
That left the European Cricket Council scrambling for an alternative until the idea of approaching the armed services was mooted by the organisation's tournament referee, Lt Col David Jukes.
ECC head Richard Holdsworth contacted Lossiemouth and after consultation with the Foreign Office, the base agreed that the cricketers could use its club pitch, which normally stages matches in the North of Scotland League. Israel will play against Guernsey today and either France or Gibraltar in their final match tomorrow. "We have been looking at absolutely every possible option to try and fulfil every fixture in this tournament," said Holdsworth. "A member of our staff, Lt Col David Jukes, suggested we look at the various military bases in Scotland and we found that Lossiemouth had a pitch. They were extremely helpful and Israel's matches will take place there.
Fucking fuckers - Al-Reuters have been caught red-handed by bloggers as faking photos so as to exaggerate damage by Israel in southern Lebanon.
