Exiled Iranians artists have sent a message to the world by assembling a video that combines footage from Iran's 1979 Revolution and footage from the recent street protests in Tehran:
AN OPEN LETTER TO THE WORLD
SCO Endorses Iranian President's Re-election
Leaders wrapped up a Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit on Tuesday with a whirl of activity: They congratulated Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on his re-election; signed a declaration affirming a multipolar world; rebuked North Korea; promised to help Afghanistan; and pledged to allow more members into their circle.NYT: President Obama Reiterates Concern About Iran's Election

Twitter's role has been so influential, in fact, that state department officials have confirmed that they asked the micro-blogging site to delay crucial network maintenance that would have taken the service offline, so that Iranians could continue to use the social networking site to organize. Discussion on Twitter has also been one of the U.S. government's key windows into what is happening in the country.More Photos from Tehran
Local Iranian Americans Protest Iranian Election
The ties that bind Los Angeles’ Iranian community to its roots a half-world away have been in full view this week, as protesters cried out in reaction to the June 12 Iranian presidential election, calling it fraudulent and a sham. Within the Iranian Jewish community in particular, the belief remains that none of the candidates can be expected to effect real change in Iran — not the rabidly anti-Israel, Holocaust-denying Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, nor the so-called moderate candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi.Iran's brave revolutionaries can change nothing but the faces
Jerusalem is ours
At the end of the day and after all the speeches, the Palestinian state - and with it the State of Israel - will rise or fall on Jerusalem, the most legitimate and greatest Israeli settlement ever. This is the field where the battle should be conducted. This is where our chances are good of explaining our right and its implementation, from King David's time to 1948 and the Six-Day War, without stammering and without apologizing.Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu´s speech at Bar-Ilan University and a selection of initial reactions
When it comes to Jerusalem, there is no need to mention either natural growth or natural development; what is at stake is nature itself, the nature of our connection to this city and the realization of the right that is rooted in our religion, our history, and 2,000 years of memory and longing, during which the Jewish presence in Jerusalem never ceased to exist
Carter Pleads with Obama to legitimitize Hamas
The Obama Administration should remove Hamas from the terrorist list, former President Jimmy Carter told media following his visit to Gaza today. He said he plans on pushing for the change when he meets with U.S. officials on Thursday to discuss his latest trip to the Middle East.The principles of the Hamas are stated in their Covenant or Charter
Carter’s comments came during a joint press conference with Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh following their meeting today in Gaza. The former president said he tried to convince Hamas leaders to denounce violence, accept the existing interim agreements and recognize the right of the Jewish state to exist.
"Hamas leaders want peace and they want to have reconciliation not only with their Fatah brothers but also eventually with Israelis to live side by side, with two nations, both sovereign nations recognized by each other and living in peace," Carter said.
Following are some highlights:
"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it." (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).
"The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Muslim generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up. "
"There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors."
"After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied in the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", and their present conduct is the best proof of what we are saying."

Throwing a BRIC through the housing numbers, getting Fed up
Dude is hip to the scam but almost afraid to say so. Right away he has to make excuses and distance himself from "the Black Helicopter crowd". Because we are all marginalized into that crowd as soon as what we say contravenes what we have been told to say.
BTW I ran that video at the time:
BRIC should create conditions for fairer world order
The Back Story: I don't mean to sound like the black helicopter crowd, but check out this amazing YouTube clip from last month. Federal Reserve Inspector General Elizabeth Coleman was questioned by Rep. Alan Grayson.
Is she investigating the Fed's role in the failure of Lehman Brothers -- which severely worsened the crash and played into the hands of then Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson's old firm Goldman Sachs (no)? Does she have an investigation into the central bank's $1 trillion expansion of its balance sheet over the previous nine months (not really)? How about the Bloomberg report of $9 trillion in off-balance-sheet lending facilities (huh?).
Scary stuff. The Fed has moved into new territory to save the economy, including acting as a lender in ways it never has before. Much of this is defensible as moves to stop the financial collapse and avoid a 1930s-style deflation. But...as the YouTube clip asks, Is anyone minding the store?
Never mind the New World Order.
Now we got the Collective Multipolar World Order!

US attorney general urges Congress to update hate crime legislation:
Remarks by Ambassador Susan E. Rice UN Security Council and the Responsibility to Protect, at the International Peace Institute Vienna Seminar, June 15, 2009:
Citing recent killings around the nation, Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday said new hate crime laws were needed to stop what he called "violence masquerading as political activism."
Holder's call for Congress to act came as the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights Education Fund issued a report saying there had been a surge in white supremacist activity since the election of the first black president and the economic downturn.
"Over the last several weeks, we have witnessed brazen acts of violence committed in places that many would have considered unthinkable," he said.
Holder cited separate attacks over a two-week period that killed a young soldier in Arkansas, an abortion provider in Kansas and a guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
The violence, he said, "reminds us of the potential threat posed by violent extremists and the tragedy that ensues when reasoned discourse is replaced by armed confrontation."
Through our Global Peace Operations Initiative, the United States has helped train and equip tens of thousands of peacekeepers, and we are working to improve peacekeepers abilities to protect civilians from the imminent threat of violence.The Global Peace Initiative is a function of the US Dept. of State

Grassley Seeks Disclosure of Ethics Waivers
It'd be nice. However I am certain we will never see them.
Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) is determined to make public every ethics waiver issued to former lobbyists who now work in the Obama administration. A Jan. 21 executive order put in place restrictions on lobbyists who work for the federal government. The order included a waiver process, allowing exemptions if the "application of the restriction is inconsistent with the purposes of the restriction" or if it is in the "public interest." Grassley is prodding the administration to disclose all waivers granted under the policy. Grassley has also requested information on every letter of recusal that waived employees have on file.SEND YER WHIZ KIDS TO CAMP RAYTHEON!

Battelle snags $29M Homeland Security contract
Battelle is working with a key network of U.S. Department of Homeland Security watch centers under a new multimillion-dollar contract.
The Columbus research giant said it was among two companies awarded contracts with the Homeland Security for work totaling up to $94 million over the long term. Under a five-year task order totaling $29 million, Battelle and Broomfield, Colo.-based subcontractor Capstone will be lending support to National Infrastructure Coordination Center watch locations nationwide along with the department’s Office of Infrastructure Protection Incident Management Cell.
Those functions fall under the National Operations Center, whose Office of Operations Coordination is in charge of real-time monitoring and coordinating responses to homeland security threats with federal agencies.
Battelle, the world’s largest nonprofit researcher, conducts more than $5 billion annually in research and development and oversees 20,400 employees worldwide. The institute also manages several national laboratories for the U.S. Department of Energy.
MFer is a licensed serial killer.
Or perhaps we can call him practitioner of extremely late term abortions.
A champion of "choice".
Operating out of a church, naturally.
In a drab church hall in Brighton, on England's southern coast, Dr. Philip Nitschke explains how to kill oneself using a plastic bag.So, if someday some lunatic guns this MFer down like Tiller I guarantee you we will hear no end of what a great man he was. This is the world we now live in.
"If you did just get a bag and put it over your head," he tells the crowd of 60 or so, "it doesn't take long before you'd find it very, very unpleasant. That's not how this method works." Nitschke then plays a video that outlines his preferred method. The video has an upbeat soundtrack and is presented by an elderly lady called Nurse Betty.
"We've chosen a large-size oven bag," she explains with a smile. "Mainly because that fits all size heads, small and big."
Some in today's crowd are terminally ill, but most aren't. Not yet, anyway. Nitschke runs an organization called Exit International and advises people to plan ahead because they might want to kill themselves one day.
IRELAND: Racists' threat to cut Romanian baby's throat
Racists who forced Romanians to flee their homes threatened to cut a baby’s throat, it emerged today. Over 100 men, women and children were this morning taken to the Ozone complex in Belfast after they spent the night in a church hall following sustained attacks by a racist mob claiming to be from the fascist group Combat 18. The families, who took refuge in a church hall, said they are too frightened to return to their homes in south Belfast, with some just wanting to return to Romania as soon as possible.BTW? SEE: COMBAT 18 and the BNP

On June 29, 2009, Pope Benedict XVI is expected to sign his third encyclical, Caritas in Veritate ("Charity in Truth"). Not much is known about the content of the encyclical, except that it will be a social encyclical in the tradition of Leo XIII's Rerum novarum, Pius XI's Quadragesimo anno, and John Paul II's Centesimus annus. And even less is known about the economic views of Pope Benedict XVI, which will undoubtedly play a central role in the text of the encyclical.Watergate planner Hunt's FBI file released

Suspense Surrounds Obama Team's Abortion Plan
Dig the LANGUAGE in this thing!
The White House is moving from listening to policymaking mode on its plan to "reduce the need for abortion" and for a "common ground" approach around related reproductive issues, like reducing unwanted pregnancy. The administration expects to roll the plan out as early as this summer. For Obama's faith-based office staff members—who are partnering with the White House Council on Women and Girls on the project—devising the plan on reproductive issues appears to be the top priority. It's also so sensitive that it's the one part of the faith-based office's mission that's being handled entirely by White House staff.Jerusalem looking to attract biomed industry
