    GOLD HI / DOLLAR LOW, terror attack

    By Michael Mackenzie and Daniel Pimlott in New York Fri Sep 28, 5:25 PM ET

    The dollar hit a record low against major currencies
    and gold reached a 27-year high on Friday.

    That is problematic.
    There is a investment method that decrees that everything known, secret and public is reflected in a stocks chart.
    Meaning that if someone knows a secret and there is a way to profit, it is human nature to make that profit. So if there is secret bad news there will be secret selling and so on.

    The Arabs fear the Persians and currently al Qaeda does oppose the Persians so the Arabs don't want AQ completely out of the picture, but they do want some control over AQ.

    They achieve this with bribes.
    Which explains This:
    ABU DHABI..(((WOW)))

    And this also explains how there were 11,000 Americans in Lebanon and none were killed or taken hostage. And why they quit beheadings.

    Of coures there is a two way communication between the payor and payee, what each is going to do.

    And that brings me to the point of this article, to drive the dollar down and gold up to record prices someone is moving USD to Gold in very large quanities.

    On 8.14.07
    The European Central Bank scrambled to head off a potential financial crisis on Thursday by pumping an emergency €94.8bn ($131bn) into the region's banking system after liquidity in the interbank market started to dry up, threatening banks' access to short-term funds.
    Its not sub-prime problems, max. loss on that $30 Billion.USD
    Was the cause of the illiquidity cash withdrawals? ( or equivalent )
    Why and who would want to withdraw funds on this scale?

    These secret trades bode ill will for USA.

    Somebody knows something.
    And it must be big if they expect to make money from golds high now.
    In the $700 USD range.

    And someone needs to be applying pressure to find out what they know.

    Series 7 and 13
    ps some one reccommended a terrorist option, which was Genius, but way ahead of its time.
    I don't think this is sub-prime related, total exposure on that is $40 billion.

    6 Die From Brain-Eating Amoeba

    6 Die From Brain-Eating Amoeba in Lakes

    Sep 28, 3:04 PM (ET)


    PHOENIX (AP) - It sounds like science fiction but it's true: A killer amoeba living in lakes enters the body through the nose and attacks the brain where it feeds until you die.

    Even though encounters with the microscopic bug are extraordinarily rare, it's killed six boys and young men this year. The spike in cases has health officials concerned, and they are predicting more cases in the future.

    "This is definitely something we need to track," said Michael Beach, a specialist in recreational waterborne illnesses for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    "This is a heat-loving amoeba. As water temperatures go up, it does better," Beach said. "In future decades, as temperatures rise, we'd expect to see more cases."

    According to the CDC, the amoeba called Naegleria fowleri (nuh-GLEER-ee-uh FOWL'-erh-eye) killed 23 people in the United States, from 1995 to 2004. This year health officials noticed a spike with six cases - three in Florida, two in Texas and one in Arizona. The CDC knows of only several hundred cases worldwide since its discovery in Australia in the 1960s.

    In Arizona, David Evans said nobody knew his son, Aaron, was infected with the amoeba until after the 14-year-old died on Sept. 17. At first, the teen seemed to be suffering from nothing more than a headache.

    "We didn't know," Evans said. "And here I am: I come home and I'm burying him."

    After doing more tests, doctors said Aaron probably picked up the amoeba a week before while swimming in the balmy shallows of Lake Havasu, a popular man-made lake on the Colorado River between Arizona and California.

    Though infections tend to be found in southern states, Naegleria lives almost everywhere in lakes, hot springs, even dirty swimming pools, grazing off algae and bacteria in the sediment.

    Beach said people become infected when they wade through shallow water and stir up the bottom. If someone allows water to shoot up the nose - say, by doing a somersault in chest-deep water - the amoeba can latch onto the olfactory nerve.

    The amoeba destroys tissue as it makes its way up into the brain, where it continues the damage, "basically feeding on the brain cells," Beach said.

    People who are infected tend to complain of a stiff neck, headaches and fevers. In the later stages, they'll show signs of brain damage such as hallucinations and behavioral changes, he said.

    Once infected, most people have little chance of survival. Some drugs have stopped the amoeba in lab experiments, but people who have been attacked rarely survive, Beach said.

    "Usually, from initial exposure it's fatal within two weeks," he said.

    Researchers still have much to learn about Naegleria. They don't know why, for example, children are more likely to be infected, and boys are more often victims than girls.

    "Boys tend to have more boisterous activities (in water), but we're not clear," Beach said.

    In central Florida, authorities started an amoeba phone hot line advising people to avoid warm, standing water and areas with algae blooms. Texas health officials also have issued warnings.

    People "seem to think that everything can be made safe, including any river, any creek, but that's just not the case," said Doug McBride, a spokesman for the Texas Department of State Health Services.

    Officials in the town of Lake Havasu City are discussing whether to take action. "Some folks think we should be putting up signs. Some people think we should close the lake," city spokesman Charlie Cassens said.....

    View from the Barrel of the AT4

    The M136 AT4 is a lightweight, self-contained, anti-armor weapon. It consists of a free-flight, fin-stabilized, rocket-type cartridge packed in an expendable, one-piece, fiberglass-wrapped tube. The AT4 is man-portable and is fired from the right shoulder only. Since the M136 AT4 is issued as a round of ammunition rather than as a weapon, the launcher is completely sealed.

    The AT4 was designed in the late 1980's for use against the improved armor of light armored vehicles. Although the AT4 is mainly used as an anti-armor weapon, it may be used with limited success against secondary targets such as gun emplacements, pillboxes, buildings, or light vehicles.

    "Irhabi 007" vital militant link -FBI

    London Internet whiz was vital militant link - FBI
    28 Sep 2007 19:25:29 GMT
    Source: Reuters

    By Claudia Parsons NEW YORK, Sept 28 (Reuters) -
    A London student known online as "Irhabi 007" served as a vital communications link in three militant plots that had once appeared unrelated, FBI Director Robert Mueller said on Friday. Mueller disclosed details of the student's role as a way, he said, of illustrating the importance of the Internet as a communications channel in modern terrorism and the challenges authorities face in tracking down militants.

    The Moroccan-born student's real name was Younes Tsouli and his nickname translates as "Terrorist 007." He was 22 years old when he was arrested in London in October 2005."The threat exists not only in the mountains of Pakistan, but also in the shadows of the Internet," Mueller told the Council on Foreign Relations in a speech. Said by prosecutors to have close ties to al Qaeda, Tsouli pleaded guilty in July to inciting terrorism on the Internet and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

    Tsouli's computer revealed he communicated extensively with two students from Atlanta accused of supporting terrorism by filming potential targets such as the U.S. Capitol and participating in "terrorist training" or "terrorism-related activities" in South Asia, Mueller said. Tsouli also was in "steady communication" with accused plotters in a case involving a Swedish national and Danish man arrested in Bosnia on suspicion of preparing to bomb targets in Europe, Mueller said.

    In addition, he said, Tsouli communicated with members of a suspected militant cell in Canada known as the "Toronto 17" who are accused of planning to attack targets in Canada. "These individuals seemed to be unrelated, but as we came to find out, they were not," Mueller said.

    He said Tsouli was at the "center of this web," facilitating communications and posting thousands of files including manuals for attacks and videotaped beheadings. "He used his computer skills to build a global virtual network for terrorists and their supporters," Mueller said. Mueller's speech comes as the Bush administration is seeking to permanently expand legal authority to eavesdrop on the communications of foreign terrorism suspects. Many Democrats are seeking restrictions on the authority to protect the rights of innocent Americans. Mueller said the Tsouli case showed the importance of adapting legislation to match technological change.

    French Oil TOTAL to Continue Operations in Burma

    French Oil Giant TOTAL to Continue Operations in Burma

    Total SA is one of the biggest foreign investors in Burma. Per Pravda, "A spokeswoman for Total told Dow Jones Newswires that Total had no intention of leaving because a "forced retreat" would open the way for competitors to take its place." (The French retreat from everything except the advance of democracy.)

    Wiki: Although Total claims to maintain a "socially responsible investment" program, there has been recent controversy over its corporate involvement in Burma, despite recent European Union sanctions on new investment in the country due to its poor human rights record. Democratic activists have accused Total of propping up that country's brutal military junta...Total is currently involved in a joint venture with the military regime developing an offshore gas field in the Andaman Sea. The Burmese government in exile also criticises Total for allegedly funding rape, murder and genocide in Burma, as a result of hiring members of the military to guard their pipeline.

    Total has been taken to court by six Burmese people who claimed they were used as forced labour in the preparation of Total's pipeline in Burma. Total paid the villages to drop the case in 2005. In 2005 a 14 year old girl was allegedly gang raped by sixteen members of the Burmese army employed by Total to guard their pipeline. Many activists feel Total has not taken adequate steps to bring those responsible to account.

    Seawitch says: The courageous people of Burma are mostly employing peaceful tactics to gain their freedom from the military junta. They are being met with clubs, bullets, clubs, batons, tear gas and now the junta has taken away the most potent weapon the Burmese people have: the internet. She urges readers to contact the Chinese embassy.

    MVRWC notes a new type of online protest:

    How to participate:

    1. Copy the following post to your blog, including this special number: 1081081081234ia

    2. After a few days, you can search Google for the number 1081081081234ia to find all blogs that are participating in this protest and petition.

    Text below the fold:

    The situation in Burma is increasingly dangerous. Hundreds of thousands of unarmed peaceful protesters, including monks and nuns, are risking their lives to march for democracy against an unpopular but well-armed military dictatorship that will stop at nothing to continue its repressive rule. While the generals in power and their families are literally dripping in gold and diamonds, the people of Burma are impoverished, deprived of basic human rights, cut off from the rest of the world, and increasingly under threat of violence.

    This week the people of Burma have risen up collectively in the largest public demonstrations against the ruling Junta in decades. It’s an amazing show of bravery, decency, and democracy in action. But although these protests are peaceful, the military rulers are starting to crack down with violence. Already there have been at least several reported deaths, and hundreds of critical injuries from soldiers beating unarmed civilians to the point of death.

    The actual fatalities and injuries are probably far worse, but the only news we have is coming from individuals who are sneaking reports past the authorities. Unfortunately it looks like a large-scale blood-bath may ensue — and the victims will be mostly women, children, the elderly and unarmed monks and nuns.

    Contrary to what the Burmese, Chinese and Russian governments have stated, this is not merely a local internal political issue, it is an issue of global importance and it affects the global community. As concerned citizens, we cannot allow any government anywhere in the world to use its military to attack and kill peacefully demonstrating, unarmed citizens.

    In this modern day and age violence against unarmed civilians is unacceptable and if it is allowed to happen, without serious consequences for the perpetrators, it creates a precedent for it to happen again somewhere else. If we want a more peaceful world, it is up to each of us to make a personal stand on these fundamental issues whenever they arise.

    Please join me in calling on the Burmese government to negotiate peacefully with its citizens, and on China to intervene to prevent further violence. And please help to raise awareness of the developing situation in Burma so that hopefully we can avert a large-scale human disaster there.

    A Quiet Triumph May be Brewing

    A Quiet Triumph May be Brewing

    By Ray Robison
    There are signs that the global Islamic jihad movement is splitting apart, in what would be a tremendous achievement for American strategy. The center of the action is in Pakistan and Afghanistan, the very territory which is thought to harbor Usama, and from which Al Qaeda was able to launch 9/11. Capitalizing on existing splits, a trap was set and closed, and the benefist have only begun to be evident.

    There were already signs of a split, but recent events strengthen the that trend. In March and again in May of this year I reviewed relevant South Asian media reporting to predict that the global Islamic jihad movement was cracking up. That theory focused on a split between the leadership of al Qaeda and the jihad groups that secure them in Pakistan such as the Taliban

    NBC News reports that a large operation is ongoing at the Tora Bora fortress in the mountains along the Afghani-Paki border and we may have just missed Usama bin Laden. I must admit that this caught me off guard. The US media has not been talking about a fight there at all, much less a large scale battle with al Qaeda leadership. So I perused one of my favorite anti-terror blogs The Jawa Report. Jawa has a link to another blog called the Internet Anthropologist which has been tracking what is going on in Tora Bora.

    Secret WWW and Cyber Jihadists

    The Dark Web and Cyber Jihad

    It's interesting to monitor the use and abuse of the buzz word "Dark Web". This press release for instance, tries to imply that the crawlers are actually crawling the Dark Web and analyzing cyber jihadist activities, a bit of an awkward statement given what the Dark Web is at the bottom line - a web that is closed for web crawlers either thought standard measures, or authentication :

    "This is where the Dark Web project comes in. Using advanced techniques such as Web spidering, link analysis, content analysis, authorship analysis, sentiment analysis and multimedia analysis, Chen and his team can find, catalogue and analyze extremist activities online. According to Chen, scenarios involving vast amounts of information and data points are ideal challenges for computational scientists, who use the power of advanced computers and applications to find patterns and connections where humans can not. One of the tools developed by Dark Web is a technique called Writeprint, which automatically extracts thousands of multilingual, structural, and semantic features to determine who is creating 'anonymous' content online. Writeprint can look at a posting on an online bulletin board, for example, and compare it with writings found elsewhere on the Internet. By analyzing these certain features, it can determine with more than 95 percent accuracy if the author has produced other content in the past. The system can then alert analysts when the same author produces new content, as well as where on the Internet the content is being copied, linked to or discussed."

    I've blogged about this AI project over an year ago, and have been following it ever since while experimenting with link and multimedia analysis of cyber jihadist communities before they were shut down. And while the innovations they've introduced for this period are impressive in terms of drawing social networking maps, the Dark Web's very principle, namely that it's authentication only Web, meaning it's closed for spiders, even human based researchers thought basic invite only or password authentication methods will prompt researchers to adapt in the long-term. Many of the cyber jihadist forums I didn't include in my last external links extraction were great examples of the dark cyber jihadist web, knowing where you crawl doesn't mean there'll be anything publicly available to crawl, and the trend is just starting to emerge. Such VIP clubs represent closed communities where more efforts should be put in taking a peek, thus it's ruining previous efficiency centered approaches of analyzing cyber jihadist communities. The alternatives remain rather contradictive but fully realistic - infecting terrorist suspects with malware, embedding malware within cyber jihadist communities, or unethically pen-testing the cyber jihadist communities to have the AI analyze the data obtained from the closed community, thus the Dark Web, at a later stage.

    Meanwhile, after having the Global Islamic Media Front's online presence limited to the minimum, GIMF is making it in the mainstream media :

    "On sites easily traceable via search engines, the German-language arm of the "Global Islamic Media Front" (GIMF) appeals for volunteer translators, inviting them to reply to a Hotmail address, and posts links to dozens of al Qaeda videos. "After some brothers and sisters were arrested (may Allah free them) and the Forum and blog of the GIMF were removed, we say this: the GIMF still exists and will continue its work," a statement from the front says. "To the Kuffar (infidels) who try to fight us, we say: you can do what you like, make as many arrests as you will not reach your goal. We will always keep going until we achieve victory or martyrdom."The re-emergence of the GIMF in German highlights the difficulty for authorities of shutting down radical Islamist Web sites, which often simply spring up at new addresses."

    Easily traceable mainly because they're not behind the Dark Web, at least not for now. Currently active GIMF URLs : with two redirectors ;

    Despite that there're still literally hundreds of cyber jihadist forums and sites, quantity is not always equal to quality, namely, only a few of these will achieve success and mature into potentially dangerous communities. In the long term, however, once the "tip of the iceberg" communities dissapear, efficiency from the cyber jihadists will get sacrificed for improved OPSEC, namely they'll start operating behind the true Dark Web, making them more difficult and time-consuming to assess, track down, and shut down.

    UPDATE: Inshallahshaheed (GIMF) has a new home.

    Read Deborah Haynes’s Inside Iraq blog

    British troops in Basra are being urged to return to the front line and help their Iraqi counterparts in the battle against insurgents after two bombs in as many days left eight people dead and many more wounded.

    Britain’s forces, however, insisted that the explosions were isolated incidents and the overall situation in Basra had become much calmer since they withdrew from their last stronghold inside the oil-rich city at the start of the month.

    The latest bombing took place on Wednesday evening near the main gate of a Sunni mosque in the town of Abu al-Khaseeb, about 12 miles (20km) south of Basra, killing three Shia guards and two Sunni worshippers, police said. Five other prayer-goers were injured.

    The attack came one day after a suicide car bomb exploded outside the police headquarters in Basra, leaving three police trainees dead and 17 wounded. Most policemen in the city are Shia Arabs.

    Colonel Abdul Kareem el-Zaydee, the main police spokesman in Basra, said he feared an upsurge of al-Qaeda attacks. “Perhaps al-Qaeda members have now come to Basra,” Colonel Zaydee told The Times.

    Nuclear Questions Aimed at Syria

    An Israeli airstrike in Syria has raised questions about a potential nuclear target (AP Images/Str/HO)

    Shortly after North Korea blasted its way into the ranks of the “nuclear club” last October, President Bush issued a stern warning about the prospect of Pyongyang as a proliferator: “The transfer of nuclear weapons or material by North Korea to states or non-state entities would be considered a grave threat to the United States, and we would hold North Korea fully accountable.” Nearly a year later, a mysterious Israeli air strike (NYT) on Syria September 6 raised speculation that North Korea may be doing just that. The United States has not commented on the issue; President Bush repeatedly refused to discuss the matter when pressed by reporters.

    What occurred on September 6 remains unclear, but the most prominent (WSJ) theory suggests Israel destroyed a nascent Syrian nuclear facility built with North Korean assistance. According to a widely cited account in the Times of London quoting Israeli defense sources, Israeli commandos nabbed nuclear material from a secret Syrian compound in advance of the strike to prove its North Korean origin. The air strike went ahead, the report claims, after the evidence satisfied skeptics in Washington. In an interview with Newsweek, Syrian Ambassador Imad Moustapha claims the Israeli strike fell on “wasteland” and calls allegations of North Korean nuclear support “ridiculous and untrue.” Little public evidence exists to confirm any account of the incident. For its part, Israel has remained tight-lipped about the air raid, in stark contrast to its jubilation after a similar raid (BBC) in 1981 on Iraq’s Osirak nuclear reactor. The United States, which offered early confirmation that a strike of some kind occurred, had said little since, though the Washington Post reports the two nations shared intelligence on the alleged Syrian site in advance of the strike.

    With the specter of nuclear terrorism a principal U.S. security concern, the prospect of Syria—a designated state sponsor of terrorism —entering the nuclear fray is worrisome. The Proliferation Security Initiative, a multilateral program aimed at identifying and intercepting illegal nuclear shipments, is designed to prevent such transfers. But in a world awash (NYT) in nuclear material, the Nuclear Threat Initiative, a nonproliferation advocacy group, warns these efforts may be insufficient (PDF).

    August mission in Tora Bora almost snared 'high value target'

    By Justin Balding, Adam Ciralsky and Robert Windrem
    NBC News
    Updated: 8:07 p.m. ET Sept 26, 2007

    A little more than a month ago, with the anniversary of Sept. 11 approaching and fears of a new al Qaeda attack rising, some U.S. intelligence and military analysts thought they had found one of the world’s two most wanted men just where they last saw them six years ago.

    For three days and nights — between Aug. 14 and 16 — U.S. and Afghanistan forces pounded the mountain caves in Tora Bora, the same caves where Osama Bin Laden had hidden out and then fled in late 2001 after U.S. forces drove al Qaeda out of Afghanistan cities. Ultimately, however, U.S. forces failed to find Bin Laden or his deputy, Ayman al Zawahiri, even though their attacks left dozens of al Qaeda and Taliban dead. Source:MSNBC more:

    After his speech his posture and the hidden profile with the hand slightly raised

    someone to shake his hand, and staring at his target, it seems obvious to me.

    BUT his handlers were not able to tell Ahmadinejad not to wipe his mouth and flick it on the floor. Hoping USA would do the politically correct thing and not say anything.
    But you had an anthropologist watching.

    Special Dispatch Series - No. 1727
    September 27, 2007
    Iranian Daily: 'The Intelligence That the West Currently Has on Iran's Nuclear Program is Limited to the Sites Accessible to IAEA Inspectors – And More Than That They Do Not Know'

    Against the backdrop of the increasing threat of a possible attack on Iran, Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) commander Mohammad Ali J'afari warned the countries in the region against permitting the U.S. to attack Iran from its territory, saying "We will pay you back, and this is only natural." [1]

    In addition, the conservative Iranian daily Kayhan, which is close to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, hinted that Iran had not yet revealed all its nuclear facilities, and maintained that the West does not have all the intelligence information that it needs to completely destroy Iran's nuclear program.

    The following are the highlights of the Kayhan article: [2]

    "Is a new war on the way?... It seems that there is a need to precisely clarify, once and for all, why [the U.S.] cannot launch a war on Iran... All the questions and intelligence ambiguities that are facing the U.S.... make any discussion of [the U.S.'s] preparedness for an attack on Iran a joke, at best.

    "The important questions are: How wide is the gap between the exact point to which Iran's nuclear program has progressed and what the Americans perceive to be the point of no return[?]... The intelligence that the West currently has on Iran's nuclear program is limited to the sites accessible to IAEA inspectors, and more than that they do not know... Is the [total] number of Iran's nuclear facilities [really] limited to those facilities that have been reported - so that America can be certain that by destroying them it will destroy Iran's entire nuclear program, or at least set it back for a very long time?...

    "Iran declares that it will consider to be an enemy any country that places its territory at the disposal of the Americans so that they can attack [Iran]... Iran's strategic facilities are scattered across the breadth of Iran, and are completely camouflaged... "

    UNITED NATIONS (CNN) -- The nuclear issue in Iran is "now closed," Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in an address Tuesday loaded with broadsides against "selfish and incompetent" powers that have "obedience to Satan."

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad talks about nuclear power, Iraq and human rights at the U.N.

    An agreement reached last month between his country and the International Atomic Energy Agency over its disputed nuclear program has, in the Iranian view, settled the matter, he said. The IAEA is the world's central nuclear technology governing body.

    "Iran decided to pursue the issue through its appropriate, legal path, one that runs through the IAEA, and to disregard unlawful and political impositions by the arrogant powers," Ahmadinejad said in a speech to the U.N. General Assembly in New York.

    "I officially announce that in our opinion, the nuclear issue of Iran is now closed and has turned into an ordinary agency matter."

    Under the deal brokered in August, the Iranian government agreed to a timetable for resolving outstanding issues with the IAEA over its nuclear program, which the Iranians have said is solely for peaceful power generation. The deal received a tepid reception from the United States and other Western countries that fear Tehran is trying to develop nuclear weapons.

    Ahmadinejad said Tuesday the IAEA has taken the "correct approach," as opposed to the U.N. Security Council, which has been "influenced by some bullying powers and failed to uphold justice and protect the rights of the Iranian people." See some of Ahmadinejad's controversial remarks »

    "Human rights are being extensively violated by certain powers," he said in his U.N. address. "Setting up secret prisons, abducting persons, trials and secret punishments without any regard to due process, extensive tappings of telephone conversations, intercepting private mail and frequent summons to police and security centers have become commonplace and prevalent."

    Islam wiping out mandaeisms -

    Total population

    60,000 to 70,000[1]

    Ginza Rba, Qolusta
    Mandaic, Arabic, Aramaic

    Mandaeism or Mandaeanism is a monotheistic religion with a strongly dualistic worldview. Its adherents, the Mandaeans, revere Adam, Abel, Seth, Enosh, Noah, Shem, Aram, and especially John the Baptist. They describe Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad as false Prophets. Mandaeans consider John the Baptist to be God's most honorable messenger.

    Worldwide, there are thought to be between 60,000 and 70,000 Mandaeans.[1] Mandaeism has historically been practiced primarily in the country around the lower Euphrates and Tigris and the rivers that surround the Shatt-al-Arab. This area is currently part of southern Iraq[2] and the Iranian province of Khuzestan. Persecution in Iraq and Iran[3] has caused many Mandaeans to leave for diaspora populations in Europe, Australia, and North America. Also, as of early 2007, most Iraqi Mandaeans have fled to Syria and Jordan under the threat of violence by Islamic extremists.[4]

    The Mandaeans have remained separate and intensely private—what has been reported of them and their religion has come primarily from outsiders, particularly from the Orientalists J. Heinrich Petermann, Nicholas Siouffi, and Lady Ethel Drower.

    The term "Mandaeism" comes from Mandaic: mandaiuta (Arabic مندائية Manda'eyya, classical Mandaic mandaiia, Neo-Mandaic Mandeyānā), meaning followers of Mandā d-Heyyi (Mandaic manda ḏ-hiia "Knowledge of Life"). In Islam, the term Sabian (Arabic: صابئين) is used as a blanket term for adherents to a number of religions, including that of the Mandaeans.

    Fred Aprim has suggested that the Mandaeans may be the descendants of the Babylonians.[5]

    Islam wiping out mandaeisms

    Among the casualties of the Iraq war is a little-known religious faith called Mandaeanism that has survived roughly two millennia and whose adherents believe that John the Baptist was their great teacher.

    While there were more than 60,000 Mandaeans in Iraq in the early 1990s, only about 5,000 to 7,000 remain. Many have fled amid targeted killings, rapes, forced conversions and property confiscation by Islamic extremists, according to a report released last week by the New Jersey-based Mandaean Society of America.

    Among the roughly 1,500 Mandaeans in the United States, there have been continual phone calls with endangered friends and relatives, fundraisers and unsuccessful lobbying efforts in Washington to get Mandaeans out of Iraq, as well as neighboring Jordan and Syria.

    "Unfortunately, we're not big in numbers, and numbers talk," said Suhaib Nashi, a 53-year-old pediatrician who helps run the Mandaean Society of America out of his Morristown, N.J., home.

    Mandaean leaders say tens of thousands of their brethren are scattered around the world, including a U.S. community centered around New York and Detroit.

    With the dispersion comes concern that the faith is withering, especially as more Mandaeans marry non-Mandaeans, with no mechanism to bring their children into the fold.

    "There's not much hope for us to survive to two or three generations," Nashi said.

    Scholars who study the Mandaean religion and culture say its extinction would be a great loss, the end of an ancient religious movement. Dating to the time of the Roman Empire, it survived primarily in what is today Iraq and Iran, a branch of the Gnostic movement that borrowed elements of Christianity.

    Mandaeans view John the Baptist as a great teacher, and engage in baptisms to come in closer contact with a "world of light" that is better than the material world on Earth.

    "It represents a slice of the culture of the Middle East before the rise of Islam. It's a view to a former world. And frankly, we don't know very much about it," said Charles G. Haberl, an instructor in Middle Eastern studies at Rutgers University.

    Haberl, who says he's trying to arrange a reprint of one of the Mandaeans' main holy books for the first time in about 150 years, laments that an "enormous literary tradition" may soon disappear.

    "It would be as if a museum or library were put to the torch," Haberl said.

    Driven from Iraq and Iran, many Mandaeans have adapted to their new homes, enjoying financial success as medical doctors, civil engineers and jewelers, Nashi said.

    But being scattered means that many in the younger generation have found spouses outside the community. And since a Mandaean has to be born a Mandaean, the children of such marriages have a questionable status in the religion.

    Mamoon Aldulaimi, 60, of Lake Grove, N.Y., is a civil engineer who's a leader in the Mandaean community. Aldulaimi's son, 20-year-old Hani Aldulaimi, married an American raised as a Baptist.

    At the wedding last May in the Phoenix area, where the newlyweds live, Mamoon Aldulaimi's daughter-in-law prominently displayed a darfash, a cross with cloth hanging off of it that's a symbol of Mandaeanism.

    "She took that initiative as a matter of respect for us," Aldulaimi said.

    But with the religion's few dozen priests reluctant to agree on a mechanism to bring in the children of mixed marriages, Aldulaimi and others wonder how long Mandaeanism will survive.

    Meanwhile, the few thousand Mandaeans still living in Iraq are finding their lives increasingly in danger, targeted by extremists of every political stripe and religious faith.

    Nashi said a cousin on his father's side, Suhail Jani Sahar, was killed by Shiite fighters in November. A more distant cousin on his mother's side, Yahya al-Chuhaily, was killed by Sunnis in June.

    "Where there are areas where the Shia are the majority, they'll kill the Mandaeans and the Christians along with the Sunnis. Where there are areas where the Sunni are the majority, they'll kill the Mandaeans and the Christians along with the Shia," Nashi said.

    Jorunn Buckley, an assistant professor of religion at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, has studied Mandaeans for decades and has testified for them in U.S. immigration courts. She said the United States could do much more to get Mandaeans out of the Middle East.

    "It's not that many people," Buckley said. "It's not 5 million people."

    When contacted about the issue, a State Department spokesman cited Jan. 17 congressional testimony by Ellen R. Sauerbrey, assistant secretary of state for population, refugees, and migration, who said the department has been expanding the ability of the United States to bring in more Iraqi refugees, including the "special populations" of religious minorities.

    "We intend to ensure that these special populations receive the same consideration and access to the U.S. resettlement program as others," Sauerbrey told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    Bin Laden losing control of Al Qaeda?

    Bin Laden losing control of Al Qaeda?

    By Sami Yousafzai and Ron Moreau

    According to a Taliban liaison officer with Al Qaeda, bin Laden recently learned that a faction within his own organistion had been conspiring to sideline him

    LONELY, marginalisd and suddenly suspicious that he was losing his grip over the organistion he helped create, Osama bin Laden finally decided that enough was enough. At least that’s the explanation sources close to him are giving for why, after three long years of silence, the Qaeda leader has released one video and two audiotapes in the past month, including last week’s audio message calling for a jihad against Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf. According to Omar Farooqi, a Taliban liaison officer with Al Qaeda, bin Laden recently learned that a faction within his own organistion had been conspiring to sideline him, insisting-unnecessarily, bin Laden now believes-that he remain secluded for security reasons. CIA officials told Newsweek they could neither confirm nor reject the theory.

    Bin Laden had long been chafing at this imposed gag order, says Farooqi, who learned from Sheik Saeed, Al Qaeda’s senior leader in Afghanistan, and other top operatives that bin Laden became “extremely upset” earlier this year when he discovered that some of his lieutenants feared he was dead. Bin Laden has always loved talking to the media-he used to infuriate his onetime protector, Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar, by holding press conferences-and, according to Farooqi, bin Laden had only reluctantly gone along with the advice that his safety required absolute silence.

    Farooqi refused to say which faction bin Laden believes is responsible for the so-called conspiracy, though several Taliban sources pointed to Ayman Al-Zawahiri, bin Laden’s deputy, suggesting that he might have been trying to solidify his own authority. This summer Farooqi and other Taliban sources told Newsweek that a split had emerged in Al Qaeda between the organistion’s powerful Egyptian faction, led by Zawahiri, and its Libyan wing over jihadist strategy. Ever since the 2001 collapse of the Taliban, Zawahiri has been plotting to kill his nemesis, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, narrowly missing twice in 2003. But the Libyans, led by Abu Yahya al-Libi, had argued that Al Qaeda’s resources should be focused on supporting insurgents in Afghanistan and Iraq and fomenting terrorism in the West.

    The Egyptian-Libyan feud may now be history, though, thanks to Musharraf’s decision in July to storm the radical Red Mosque in the heart of Islamabad, during which the mosque’s radical leader Abdul Rashid Ghazi was killed. Within days, Zawahiri issued a video calling on Pakistanis to “revolt”.

    Soon afterward, al-Libi followed suit. Even bin Laden, who had never before called on Pakistanis to rise up against Musharraf, did so in his latest audiotape. Despite the unity over Musharraf, though, there is still plenty of talk within Al Qaeda over Zawahiri’s grip on resources.

    And what about those who had tried to sideline bin Laden? With Osama seemingly back in charge, they can only support him, at least for now. courtesy newsweek..

    The Islamist website, hosted by SoftLayer Technologies Inc. in Texas, USA, has published a list of names, some with photos, titled "Pictures of the Infidels and Apostates Wanted by the Islamic State of Iraq." The message accompanying the list praises the September 13, 2007 assassination of Al-Anbar Salvation Council head 'Abd Al-Sattar Abu Risha by the ISI, [1] and threatens other tribal leaders who oppose Al-Qaeda: "We killed your leader and sheikh on the first day of Ramadan, as we promised you. You should know that the ISI will prevent most of your [other] leaders from offering up their holiday prayers [on 'Id Al-Fitr at the end of the month of Ramadan]. You will never see 'Id Al-Fitr, because [the jihad fighters] have turned [this] Ramadan into a grave for the apostates. [Abu Risha] is the first... dead hypocrite of this month - [the month of] jihad and mujahideen - and will be followed by many others."

    Below are the photos and names, as they appear in the posting. The individuals crossed out have already been assassinated by the ISI.

    Ahmadinejad kicks butt !!

    NEW YORK (CNN) -- Columbia University President Lee Bollinger excoriated Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday, going through a long list of documented actions and remarks by the firebrand Iranian leader and his government.


    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaks Monday at Columbia University in New York.

    "Mr. President, you exhibit all the signs of a petty and cruel dictator," Bollinger said to applause from many of the 600 people in the room for a speech from the Iranian leader.

    Bollinger cited the Iranian government's "brutal crackdown" on dissidents, public executions, executions of minors and other actions.

    And he assailed Ahmadinejad's "denying" of the Holocaust as "ridiculous" and "dangerous propaganda." He called the Iranian leader either brazenly provocative "or astonishingly uneducated."

    "The truth is that the Holocaust is the most documented event in human history," he said.

    He said he doubted Ahmadinejad would show the intellectual courage to answer the questions before him.

    Ahmadinejad responded quickly.

    "We don't think it's necessary before the speech is given to come in with some series of claims," the Iranian leader said.

    He said Bollinger's comments included "insults" and false claims, and flew in the face of an environment that's supposed to let people speak their minds.

    On the Holocaust, Ahmadinejad asked why history can't be questioned and further researched.

    "If the Holocaust is a reality of our time, a history that occurred, why is there not sufficient research that can approach the topic from different perspectives?" he asked.

    The Iranian leader has made statements in the past suggesting that Israel be politically "wiped off the map," though he insists that can be accomplished without violence. See some of Ahmadinejad's controversial remarks »

    While he would not respond with a "yes" or "no" when asked Monday if he sought the destruction of Israel, he said the status of Israel should be determined by a free election.

    "Let the people of Palestine freely choose what they want for their future," he said.

    Asked about widely documented government abuse of women and homosexuals in his country, Ahmadinejad said, "We don't have homosexuals" in Iran. "I don't know who told you we had it," he said.








    Bollinger the Univ. President was very unprofessional to invite him then call Ahmadinejad names. Embarrassment to the University.


    Watch him lie:

    Chinese Hackers in USA Gov PC's

    Chinese Hackers

    September 14, 2007

    On Wednesday, wire services reported that a senior Chinese official charged foreign intelligence services of causing "massive and shocking" damage to his country through computer espionage.

    A vice minister of the Information Industry, Lou Qinjian, did not identify any culprit by name, but he did state that 80% of the computers used in the attacks were based in America. Beijing's accusation came suspiciously only after months of reports of Chinese hacking into Western government information systems.

    President Bush had been expected to raise the issue with his Chinese counterpart, Hu Jintao, during their 90-minute meeting in Sydney last Thursday. The two leaders had time to discuss a wide range of topics, including China's role in Sudan and Iran. They even found a few moments for a friendly chat about next summer's Olympics.

    Mr. Bush, however, was not anxious to talk about the recent Chinese hacker attacks against U.S. government networks. The Pentagon suspects that China's People's Liberation Army successfully penetrated an unclassified computer system serving the office of Defense Secretary Gates this June.

    The system was shut down after the perpetrators had obtained information, some of it sensitive. The Pentagon attack followed ones last year in July on the Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Security, in November on the Naval War College, and in December on the National Defense University. In the spring of last year, China accessed State Department computers and installed backdoors in networks to siphon off information on China and North Korea.
