March 30, 2006: Jenin, Judia Samaria (Palestine). Palestinian authorities have disbanded a youth orchestra from a West Bank refugee camp and barred the conductor from her studio after she directed a concert for a group of Holocaust survivors in Israel, a local official said on Sunday.Adnan Hindi of the Jenin camp called the Holocaust a “political issue” and accused the orchestra’s conductor of unfairly dragging the children into a politics.
The dispute underscores Palestinian sensitivities over acknowledging Jewish suffering, which many fear could weaken their own historical grievances against Israel. Ignorance and even denial of the Holocaust is widespread in Palestinian society.
At last Wednesday’s concert in Holon, most of the Holocaust survivors did not know the youths were Palestinians from the West Bank, a rare sight in Israel these days. And the youths, who range in age from 11 to 18, had no idea they were performing for people who lived through Nazi genocide — or even what the Holocaust was.
Hindi said that conductor Wafa Younis, an Israeli Arab living in Israel, has been banned from the camp, and the apartment where she taught the 13-member Strings of Freedom orchestra has been boarded up.
“She exploited the children,” said Hindi, the head of the camp’s “popular committee,” which takes on municipal duties. “She will be forbidden from doing any activities … We have to protect our children and our community.”
The Holocaust happened, but we are facing a similar massacre by the Jews themselves,” Hindi said. “We lost our land, and we were forced to flee and we’ve lived in refugee camps for the past 50 years.”
Younis, the conductor, denied the issue was political, saying camp officials wanted to take over the orchestra to get its funding.
“They want to destroy this group. It’s a shame, it’s a tragedy. What did these poor, elderly people do wrong? What did these children do wrong?” she said.

Automatically Generated Transcript

(note from Ellie, I didn’t fix many mistakes in this transript. There were a few I noticed that I just couldn’t resist fixing, but overall this is just FYI, not beautiful prose.)

” shocking story earlier this morning now according to her reporting the terrorist organization Hezbollah. Has been using Mexican drug smuggling routes to enter the US. Sara A Carter is the national security pentagon correspondent the Washington times she joins us now on the very latest. Sarah that the just to get this straight the same Hezbollah that is funded by Iran.”

” Cracked it is the same Hezbollah that is funded by Iran. These are wings at Hezbollah criminal enterprises working in Latin America — yes absolutely right — you save your report that they rely on the act the same criminals smugglers the document traffickers transportation the drug cartels.”

” And that there were all working together we can you explain what some specificity exactly what that means.”

” Yet it you know this isn’t as complicated as it scenes. What happened is you know Hezbollah has to count on this — transit routes into the United States. To raise money and to move people as the other. Cartels in Mexico as well as Colombian cartels. And other cartels and Latin America and South America. At this point in time Mexico’s seems to control the majority of transit routes into the US. You know after September 11 we were locked down a lot of our waterways. Fifteen years ago we close off the Caribbean corridor so it made it much more difficult to move things by ship or by plane. In the United States so what happened then with that most of the South American drug cartels began moving all of their narcotics through Mexico. The airport having to pay the Mexican cartels. Tax our permission to move their product through. And at what happened is that increase the power of the Mexican drug cartels to the point where they were making billions and billions of dollars. And now pretty much controlled Mexico itself you know look — Sarah at.”

” I have made this case I’ve been through what I’ve seen these tunnels as one of particular that I saw in San Diego literally from Mexico to San Diego. I’ve been to the border from the Rio Grande El Paso to San Diego and everywhere between.”

” My biggest arguments always — that if somebody can come to America.”

” Because they want to job where they want hope or opportunity which by the way if I was living in poverty I think that probably do the same thing.”

” But the biggest threat to America is that they can come here these are terrorist organizations and it for the life of me.”

” I don’t understand why the fences and completely built like Janet — coast tell America that in fact we have no drug violence on our border right now.”

” What’s it going to take for these guys to wake up.”

” Look this is not a lot enforcement issues this is a national security issue. It’s not just me saying this — defense officials. These are DEA officials this is intelligence officials. These are people that worked in that region day in and day out and risk their lives. I’ve been down there myself you know that — yes I have seen homes blown up by busy because they’re using AK forty sevens they’re using grenades they’re using rocket launchers they have bulletproof SUVs. These guys have. Built a criminal syndicate that we can’t even comprehend these are armies — these are gains.”

” I hope I swear I hope everybody’s listening do you think it’s possible as they are crop as they’ve now — crossing the border news in the same roads. Is it possible they can sneak in a nuke.”

” You know we keep hearing about these missing suitcase — from from the former Soviet Union as a possible that they can bring in weapons of mass destruction. Warm I live in — paranoid delusional fantasy here.”

” You’re not living in a paranoid delusional fantasy they can certainly sneak over radioactive material they can sneak over people. One of the things that I’ve been looking into — it’s in my report as well. If you know that soldiers and an end they would be willing to move suicide bombers and in this country through the border it’s just that easy it’s it’s not that. There has not been sufficient amount of security on that border we’ve been reporting this for years since September 11. I mean one of the things that the September 11 commission said with that we needed to look outside of the box more. I mean now we were struck by planes in the sky it’s not impossible and you look al-Qaeda is already looked at the border. Hezbollah has already made their way through the border we don’t know who else has made their way through that border he was here right now I mean really we don’t.”

” we end this is coming from sources that analysts that we can’t use the term enemy combatant war on terrorism. You know operational contingency or a contingency operational whatever the phrase that Barack Obama uses. I mean it’s what it’s it seems that we’ll go back to pre 9/11 mentality. And you mention the 9/11 report the final report said they were — war with us. You know we were at war with them and if we hope we don’t pay attention to it while I think that the same result full wolfpack.”

With the above video/transcript in mind, then watch this Islamic cleric discuss in all seriousness the feasibility and desirability of some “courageous” person smuggling 4 lbs of Anthrax in a suitcase through these very same tunnels. This amount of Anthrax would be guaranteed to kill 330,000 Americans within an hour, if distributed through population centers properly. — Ellie Katz

THIS DAY March 29

Today

March 29 2009: Helsinki, Finland. Authorities plan to charge Helsinki City Councilman Jussi Halla-aho with violating laws relating to freedom of worship and inciting racial hatred.
Deputy State Prosecutor Jorma Kalske made the decision to press charges Friday, based on opinions expressed in Halla-aho’s Internet blog.
The prosecutor claims that last summer Halla-aho wrote about Muslims and other immigrant groups in a derogatory manner.
The True Finns councillor allegedly wrote that Islam and its religious institutions were linked to paedophilia. The blog also reportedly suggested that the tendency to mug passerby and to live off of state benefits were characteristics of particular nationalities or genetic groups. The charges are to be laid in Helsinki District Court.
Back ground
Halla-aho maintains a blog titled Scripta that deals with issues such as ”immigration, multiculturalism, tolerance, racism, freedom of speech and political correctness”. His blog has between 3,000 and 6,000 readers a day.
According to Halla-aho, the biggest problem is large amounts of immigrants compared to the chances to integrate newcomers.
He has stated that minority group whose integration has failed everywhere are muslims that come from certain parts of the globe. According to Halla-aho, these are often cultures that honour force unlike western civilization and as long as these newcomers stick in to their characteristics and society encourages them to wrap into their divergence adaptation is not possible and that creates the problems of social exclusion and ethnic ghettoization.
He has stated that discrimination and privileges should not be allowed because of ones culture or nationality. According to Halla-aho, criticizing “totalitarian fascist ideologies like political Islam” is not racism and the facts can not be criminalized.
According to Halla-aho, immigration is a taboo in Finland. He has told that he has received death threats because of his web columns.
After delaying their decision for several times The Finnish Green Women’s Association announced 18 November 2008 that they have asked Finnish police to began criminal investigation on Halla-aho.
The Green Women’s Association’s leader Heli Järvinen claims that Halla-aho’s texts are not just expression of freedom of speech and innocent multiculturalism criticism and that they stir to raping and hatred.
Halla-aho has denied this and told that he opposes violence against women.
In December 2008, Finnish police began investigation on Halla-aho for incitement against an ethnic group because of his texts. Finnish police are also considering whether they should review his gun licence

Comment from Brooke M. Goldstein

It is important to start by defining the Islamist movement as that which seeks to impose tenets of Islam and Sha’aria as a legal, political, religious and judicial authority both in Muslim states and in the West.
One tenant of Sha’aria law is to punish those who criticize Islam, and to silence speech considered blasphemous against Islam or its Prophet Mohammed.
The Islamist movement has two wings – that which operates violently, propagating suicide-homicide bombing and other terrorist activities, and that which operates lawfully, conducting a “soft jihad,” within our court systems, through Sha’aria banking, within our school systems and through organizations such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Canadian Islamic Congress. Both the violent and the lawful arms of the Islamist movement can and do work apart, but often, their work re-enforces each other’s.
For example, while the violent arm of the Islamist movement attempts to silence speech by burning cars when Danish cartoons of Mohammed are published, by murdering film directors such as Theo Van Gogh and by forcing thinkers such as Wafa Sultan into hiding out of fear of her life, the lawful arm is skilfully manoeuvring within Western court systems, hiring lawyers and suing to silence its critics.
Islamists with financial means have launched a “legal jihad”, filing a series of malicious lawsuits, in American courts and abroad, and against anyone who speaks out against or writes about radical Islam and its sources of financing and support.
This type of lawfare is often predatory, filed without a serious expectation of winning, and undertaken as a means to intimidate, demoralize and bankrupt defendants.
The lawsuits are often based on frivolous claims ranging from defamation to workplace harassment to plain Islamophobia, and have resulted in books being banned and pulped, in thousands of dollars worth of fines and in publishing houses and newspapers rejecting important works on counter-terrorism out of fear of being the next target.

This only gets worse

Here is one that is slipping under the radar.

Here is the case of Henrik Holappa: who was arrested on the morning of 03-09-2009 was arrested in Pennsylvania and slapped in handcuffs and leg-irons and whisked off to the local county jail. He now faces deportation back to his native Finland , where he could be jailed for 4.5 years for expressing his opinions

Henrik Holappa: Had applied for Political asylum application and here is his Affidavit.

I have been persecuted by the government (army, police, prosecutors), the mass media, and an employer in my country starting on August 8, 2006, when the security police, the SUPO, visited my apartment, which I shared with my sister Natalija, and then my school, asking both her and me many questions and warning me to abandon my beliefs — or else I would lose my prospects of ever being a security guard, and also be “unwelcome in Germany,” a country I intended to visit.
Then the Finnish police obviously notified all Finnish security companies that I should not be employed even as a security guard. I found no one would hire me, although I had graduated from the security guard school Osakk on August 25, 2006. The security company ISS had verbally promised me employment guarding University Hospital in Oulu, but at the end of October 2006 it suddenly had no record or file at all of my job application and two-hour interview on October 9, 2006. So I lost that career possibility.
For centuries, my family has honorably served Finland in military service, under Swedish, Russian and Finnish governments, and both my grandfathers fought against the Soviets in WWII; many of my father’s cousins fell for Finland’s freedom in the war. Both grandfathers suffered greatly in the war, and one never quite recovered from Soviet captivity, suffered severe depression and died in his forties. It was therefore extremely painful to me as an patriotic Finn to be in effect dishonorably discharged on September 6, 2007 from the Finnish Army Reserve solely because of my political views. My reservist duty was to be renewed in January 2008.
I had considered a full-time military career before that, and in fact had left high school to join the army out of love of military service; this career was now also destroyed.
The police came to my apartment on Tuesday, January 16, 2007, at 3:20 pm, and ransacked it, throwing things on the floor, and seized both my computers (returning them three days later.)
They then went to my parents’ home, where I was raised as a child, and the criminal police officer Sari Isometsa Tihinen (whose business card is enclosed with my application) threatened my mother that:
–I was “in big trouble,” that
–“Henrik might not come home for a long time,” and that
–if I pursued my beliefs, I “would not have any part in our society.”
I was in police custody for 24 hours at the Oulu police station that same day in a concrete cell with the lights burning day and night, on suspicion of sending a photograph or writing an article, both unprovable charges, and I was not allowed to make any phone calls. After the 24 hours I was told that I was now under arrest, and spent two more days in that cell with nothing to read or do, incommunicado, without visitors, and with no phone call to anyone. The police told my mother that I was under arrest. I was released without charges on the 19th.
When I emerged from jail, I discovered that the main newspaper in northern Finland, Kaleva, had violated on the day of my detention, January 16, the Finnish press custom of never reporting the name of a suspect, even a murder suspect, under the presumption of innocence, until he had been actually convicted at the end of a trial. However, the article mentioned me by my name in the very first paragraph, and stated falsely as a proven fact that I had written a certain article in December 2006.
It was an article denouncing gangs of African rapists of my countrywomen of whom many were and are still running around un-arrested in my city. The article highlighted the infamous “scissor rapists” — Sudanese black Africans who clitorectomized a Finnish female rape victim with scissors in June 2005 in Oulu and were sentenced to three years in prison in January 2006.
The author asked why Finland was bringing in such immigrants and why there were no subsequent arrests for the other African gang rapists still terrorizing my city. (Finland itself has no history of gang rape among the native Finns.) The media article also stated as fact the unproven assertion that I had sent off a clipped newspaper photo to America – as a serious “copyright violation” — and the lie that while living in Oulu as a young Finn without any website skills, I was “the webmaster” of an American website.
This was obviously a coordinated campaign by the Finnish government, police and media, all together, to make me a hated person to both leftist Finns and to the very Somali and Sudanese gang rapists who then, as now, are on the loose in the city of my birth. (There have been no prosecutions of African gang rapists there since the scissors rapists were convicted in January 2006, 33 months ago, although the problem continues and these immigrants stand out memorably by their appearance to both their victims and the public in my Scandinavian country.)
There are also many black immigrants, all Muslim Africans, in my apartment building, who live on my street and in my neighborhood, and they can know who I am, because the main newspaper in all of northern Finland, Kaleva, with a daily circulation of 300,000, used my name.
They can afford this newspaper because they can get up to 3,000 euros a month in welfare for a family, while an unemployed Finn can get only 400 euros a month.
The security police, SUPO, could even remind the African Muslim communities of my name and address.
On May 11 or 12, 2008 I received a phone call while visiting neighboring Estonia from the same Sari Tihinen, asking me when I could come to the police station in Oulu. She further informed me over the telephone that the top prosecutor in Finland, Mika Illman, whose name suggests Jewish ancestry and thus animus toward me, had “dug up my case again.”
On Tuesday, May 20, 2008 this same policewoman further warned me, now at the Oulu police station, that I was to be indicted by the government of Finland on three serious charges so as to “make an example of me for other racists in Finland,” as follows:
1)two years imprisonment for “incitement of racial hatred” [sic];
2)two years behind bars for “defaming the honor of the African community of Finland”
3)six months imprisonment for “copyright violation.”
(I had merely scanned a photo of “multiculturalism” from a Finnish newspaper, and sent it as a private email attachment to an American friend. He then, unbeknownst to me, posted it on an American website.)
I believe I was targeted because the Finnish authorities hate my views and see me as a young leader whose crushing would preclude any political movement I could start. (I have never started any movement; I only turned 23 in July.)
I am sure that the Finnish government would harm me on my return by arresting me and prosecuting me, and putting me in prison next to Somali and Turkish felons who might hate me and seek to beat, rape or kill me. The Finnish government would itself be my main persecutor, and might not protect me at all in prison. In fact, it might invite inmates to get a sentence reduction if they harmed me.
They might also put me, as an “extremely dangerous person” (the policewoman’s words to me and to members of the True Finns political party of which I was once a member) in a maximum security prison where I would be shut up in a cell for 23 hours a day. This is a form of severe mental harm, especially for an innocent person who deserves no punishment.
The Finnish government is modern and controls all the territory of Finland, so there is no place in my country where I could hide for long. Furthermore, all other European Union countries have laws similar to Finland’s and would arrest me on a European Union arrest warrant to extradite me back to Finland or to any other EU country that objects to my views.
I left Finland by plane and flew via Iceland to the United States on July 11, 2008. I came here as a bona fide tourist, but decided toward the end of my tourist stay that I loved America, its people, its beauty and its freedom of speech and that I did not want to be imprisoned and possibly murdered in Finland.

“Here is an example of what he was complaining about: Four Congolese “youths” who raped a Finnish woman and maimed her horribly with scissors received a FOUR-YEAR prison sentence apiece.
Here’s a description of the crime: [from the Finnish "Kaleva"]“3 Congolese immigrants gang raped a Finnish woman in Oulu (northern Finland), they made fistula on her using scissors in the Congo fashion, clipping up the skin between anal and vaginal openings, which means she will have to wear diapers if they can’t fix it with surgery (and in many cases, it’s impossible to fix it, many victims of this attack in Congo had to use colostomy bags for the rest of their life.”

And for this they got 4 years Do you really think that 4 years is adequate for a crime like that. And, sorry to mention a “racist” FACT (if facts can indeed be “racist”), but gang rape – which is now epidemic in Scandinavia, rising each year, coincidentally, as the numbers of immigrants increases – was unknown in Finland before the recent influx of immigrants.

Yet both Jussi Halla-aho and Henrik Holappa could be jailed for 4.5 years for expressing their opinions

Today’s khutbah (Islamic sermon)At-Touba 9:123[123]
O ye who believe! Fight the Unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you: and know that Allah is with those who fear Him.

March 28 2009: Jamrud, Pakistan. A suicide bomber blew himself up in a crowded Pakistani mosque during prayers, killing at least 48 people, a government official said.
“So far we have counted 48 bodies,” Tariq Hayat Khan, the top administrator in the Khyber region in the north-west of the country, told reporters.
The death toll could rise, perhaps to 70, he said. About 70 wounded had been taken to hospitals, he said.
“It was a suicide attack. The bomber was standing in the mosque. It’s a two-storey building and it has collapsed,” he said.
Between 250 and 300 people were in the mosque, he said.
Police initially said a bomb blew up at a police post next to the mosque near Jamrud town.
“It’s surprising, those who claim that they are doing jihad and then carry out suicide attacks inside mosques during Friday prayers,” Mr Khan said.
“They are infidels. They are enemies of Pakistan. They are enemies of Islam,” he said.
Worshippers searched through piles of bricks, pulling out bodies and carrying them to ambulances in sheets and on rope beds, television pictures showed.
There was no claim of responsibility but Islamist militants opposed to the government’s support for the United States have mounted a violent campaign against the security forces and others.

“They are infidels. They are enemies of Pakistan. They are enemies of Islam,”

The “Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act” (GIVE act). HR 1388 has just passed the  Senate.

In the bill, Obama sets up the mechanics that he passed in the Stimulus Package for his volunteer operations – including setting up a government funded corporation with a Board of Directors and CEO. What is frightening is the tentacles that this will entail as all agencies need to create positions for these volunteers. Yada … yada .. I could go on as how he has tied his FEMA Scheme for the Civilian Security Defense Force into this legislation, but now they’re called “National Volunteer Reserve Corps.” This creates images of the Peace Corps, but it is something far more sinister. In addition, the legislation is targeting foster kids, disadvantaged teens and more specifically BLACK colleges and universities. Reading the provisions, it smacks of a program tailor-made for ACORN. It is a bill that has reverse discrimination all over it as it is NOT designed for middle-class Americans to benefit from – regardless of your race. But this is NOT what has piffed me off.

The GIVE Act has 12 amendments. The one I am outraged over is House Amendment 49. It reads: “H.Amdt49 Pass Amendment to prohibit organizations from attempting to influence legislation; organize or engage in protests, petitions, boycotts, or strikes; and assist, promote, or deter union organizing.”

If I read that right, your First Amendment rights of Free Speech just were legislated out the door. ( Kalani in the Atlas comments section here)

Legislation for O-mao’s army is in place.

Obama’s Brownshirts: “We’re looking for supporters,” “We’re not looking for a fight. That will come later, when we have an army.”

Every American a ‘Volunteer’ American Thinker

You can read the final version of the House bill here. The legislation is a long string of amendments to existing laws that make it almost impossible to understand. (Really. This legislation is incomprehensible. I challenge you to click on this link and try to read the bill.)

There appears to be little volunteerism and almost no education in the bill.  But there are a lot of make-work government jobs for doing God only knows what.

For example:SEC. 122. NATIONAL SERVICE PROGRAMS ELIGIBLE FOR PROGRAM ASSISTANCE.

‘(a) Required National Service Corps- The recipient of a grant under section 121(a) and each Federal agency operating or supporting a national service program under section 121(b) shall, directly or through grants or subgrants to other entities, carry out or support the following national service corps, as full- or part-time corps, including during the summer months, to address unmet educational, health, veteran, or environmental needs.

In case you missed it that says “Required National Service Corps.”
And the authorized benefits for these “volunteers” reads a lot like the workers’ allotments for a “people’s republic” to me:

(a) In general
The Director shall provide for members of the Civilian Community Corps to receive benefits authorized by this section.(b) Living allowance
The Director shall provide a living allowance to members of the Corps for the period during which such members are engaged in training or any activity on a Corps project. The Director shall establish the amount of the allowance at any amount not in excess of the amount equal to 100 percent of the poverty line that is applicable to a family of two (as defined by the Office of Management and Budget and revised annually in accordance with section 9902 (2) of this title.[1]

(c) Other authorized benefits
While receiving training or engaging in service projects as members of the Civilian Community Corps, members may be provided the following benefits:

(1) Allowances for travel expenses, personal expenses, and other expenses.
<(2) Quarters.
(3) Subsistence.
<(4) Transportation.
5) Equipment.
<(6) Clothing.
(7) Recreational services and supplies.
(8) Other services determined by the Director to be consistent with the purposes of the Program.

Does that read like a voluntary program for, say, cleaning up the neighborhood? Or does it seem more like directions for funding a labor camp?That America’s young people are not up in arms at the very idea of this bill demonstrates how ill-informed, or brain washed, the graduates of our public education system have become.

Are the Simpsons going the way of the Protocols of Zion?

Posted by avideditor on March 26, 2009

I heard the Simpsons are going to Israel. I hope it is not some lefty anti-jew mumbo jumbo. If it is I am going to hold all the power brokers at Fox responsible. So far Fox is one of the few if not only network that does not actively promote the genocide of Jews. I fear they are going down the wrong path. I have not yet seen the episode, so who knows. But just to make things clear promoting giving Jihadis land so they can kill more Jews is anti-Semitic. For some reason I expect more from Fox. I like buying the NY Post even though I do not live in NYC. If Fox goes to the dark side by promoting anti-semitism, I am not going to buy it any more and I am sure the back lash will be greater than Fox realizes it. Be fair and balanced all you want but do not become a broadcaster of anti-Semitic lies. I saw the story on Isreallycool’s live blog. If you want to know what is happening in Israel, I highly recommend it. Since I am giving plugs, if you have not visited Sultan Knish’s blog, you should. It some of the best analysis out there IMHO.

More Support For Hamas On U.S. Campuses Than In Ramallah

On Campus: The Pro-Palestinians’ Real Agenda
During a recent visit to several university campuses in the U.S., I discovered that there is more sympathy for Hamas there than there is in Ramallah.

Listening to some students and professors on these campuses, for a moment I thought I was sitting opposite a Hamas spokesman or a would-be-suicide bomber.

I was told, for instance, that Israel has no right to exist, that Israel’s “apartheid system” is worse than the one that existed in South Africa and that Operation Cast Lead was launched only because Hamas was beginning to show signs that it was interested in making peace and not because of the rockets that the Islamic movement was launching at Israeli communities.

THIS DAY March 25

Today

March 25, 2009: Sidon, Lebanon. A bomb killed a senior official in the Palestinian Fatah faction and four other people in southern Lebanon on Monday, security sources said.

Kamal Medhat, deputy head of the Palestine Liberation Organization in Lebanon, was killed with his companions on a road near Mieh Mieh refugee camp outside the southern city of Sidon.
The bomb, hidden under a manhole cover, hurled one car off the road into a nearby orchard. Another car plunged into what appeared to be a crater left by the blast.Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned Medhat’s killing as an act of terrorism. Hamas also condemned the attack.Medhat had been accompanying Lebanon PLO representative Abbas Zaki, who was not injured in the blast, on a visit to Mieh Mieh camp.
Lebanon is home to 12 Palestinian refugee camps that house more than 200,000 registered refugees. Both had been attending a meeting to reconcile feuding families in the camp.
Describing Medhat as a martyr, Hamdan told Hezbollah’s al-Manar television it was not possible to say who was behind the attack, but said the perpetrators had served Israeli interests.
Tensions have been high in Mieh Mieh and the nearby Palestinian camp of Ain al-Hilweh, where Fatah and a range of Islamist factions compete for influence.
Two people, including a Fatah activist, were killed on Saturday in a gunbattle in Mieh Mieh camp. The clash was attributed to a family dispute.
Tensions among Palestinians remain a potential risk to stability in Lebanon, which has suffered from a string of assassinations, a war with Israel and a paralyzing internal political crisis in the past few years.
“I fear that this might be a sign of an expansion of Palestinian-Palestinian conflicts in Lebanon,” said Nabil Boumonsef, a political commentator in an-Nahar newspaper. “Palestinian-Palestinian conflicts could be spreading faster than we were expecting,” he said.March 25, 2009: Umm El Fahm, Israel. Jewish extremists marched Tuesday through an Israeli-Arab town to demand residents show loyalty to Israel, setting off stone-throwing protests by Arab youths that police dispersed with stun grenades and tear gas.
The clashes in the northern Israeli town of Umm el-Fahm came at a time of increasing tensions between Israel’s Jewish majority and its Arab minority, and residents said the march was a provocation.
No serious injuries were reported.Dozens of Arab youths, their faces covered with checkered Palestinian scarves, heaved rocks at heavily armed black-clad police holding up shields, who responded by lobbing back tear gas.
Some of the protesters carried large Palestinian flags, running and weaving between cars.

Hardline Jews carrying large Israeli flags and flanked by security forces marched on the outskirts of the town, apparently targeted because it is one of Israel’s largest Arab communities and is known for Arab nationalist sympathies and as a stronghold of the radical Islamic Movement.
“We came to say that the state of Israel is a Jewish state. We came in a show of loyalty and to say whoever is loyal, welcome. But people who flout the law should get out of here,” said Itamar Ben-Gvir, a Jewish ultranationalist who helped lead the event. Israel’s one-fifth Arab minority is made up of ethnic Palestinians who enjoy equal rights under the law but suffer discrimination in government jobs and budgets and tend to be poorer and less educated than Israeli Jews.
Relations between Jews and Arabs have worsened in recent months following Israel’s war in the Gaza Strip and a parliamentary election last month that saw Yisrael Beiteinu, a party with an anti-Arab platform, win 15 seats.
The party called to revoke the citizenship of Arabs disloyal to the Jewish state.
The party’s popularity reflects rising distrust of Arab citizens, perceived by many Israeli Jews as disloyal and potentially hostile.March 25, 2009: Ghaziabad, India, A 16-year-old girl was allegedly burnt alive, on Monday afternoon, by four residents of her village in a case of “aggressive moral policing,” as they suspected she had a physical relationship with one Irfan of the village.
The girl later succumbed to her injuries in a Modinagar hospital.
According to district police chief, Akhil Kumar, Zalis, Asim, Azim and another village resident had been keeping a watch on the girl’s house, in Teori village, in the Bhojpur police station area. They thought one Irfan of the village was a frequent visitor to the girl’s house when her father was not at work.
“In the afternoon,” said Kumar, “the four young men came to the girl’s house, and demanded to know why Irfan allegedly frequently visited her house. The girl’s younger sister, who felt the visitors were getting violent, ran out of the house. Meanwhile, the accused beat up the girl, and then set her on fire with a kerosene oil. The oil was poured on her from a bottle that lay in her house.”
Police have launched a hunt for the accused, after the victim made a dying statement saying they had beat and set her on fire.
