Taking a firmer line with Israel than the Bush administration, President Barack Obama is urging Israel to stop all settlement construction in the West Bank or risk closing off the most promising avenues for peace negotiations.Washington also wants Israel to shelve any plan for a military strike to sabotage Iran's nuclear facilities, arguing that Obama's offer of engagement and talks with Iran deserves time to bear fruit. Obama's senior military advisers say a strike could cause more problems than it solves in the short run, but Israeli leaders are firm that their small country in Iran's line of fire must make such calculations for itself.
Obama Presses Israel to Halt Plans Funded by Rennert, Moskowitz
Renco Group Inc. founder Ira Rennert and bingo entrepreneur Irving Moskowitz are among U.S. donors who have given $25.4 million in five years to build Jewish homes in Arab parts of Jerusalem -- the same areas where President Barack Obama is pressing Israel to stop such construction.Rabbi Ovadia slams US: We're not their slaves
The American contributions, detailed in Internal Revenue Service records, have gone to organizations such as Ateret Cohanim. The group says it bought at least 45 properties, most in Jerusalem’s Muslim Quarter, to advance its goal of settling a Jewish majority in the now predominantly Arab Old City.
The donations have also helped fund plans to build Jewish homes on the Shepherd Hotel site in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood. The U.S. State Department two weeks ago asked Israel to halt the project, which has been condemned as a threat to Israeli-Palestinian peace prospects by the French government, the European Union and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
Plans to build homes for Jews in that part of the city are “the type of issue that should be subject to permanent-status negotiations” in the Middle East peace process, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley told reporters on July 20.

Hezbollah Leader Threatens Tel Aviv Strike
Hezbollah's leader was quoted by two Lebanese newspapers Monday as warning that his Iranian-backed militants will strike Israel's largest city of Tel Aviv with missiles from Lebanon — if the Jewish state attacked the guerrillas' south Beirut stronghold in a new war. The papers — As-Safir and Al-Akhbar, both with close ties to Hezbollah — said Sheik Hassan Nasrallah made the threat during a weekend closed meeting with a group of Lebanese expatriates.Egypt refers 26 Hezbollah suspects to trial

Christians and Jews are "kuffar" (non-Muslims or infidels) and therefore: "To make it seem as if we are 'brothers in faith' with the kuffar is to commit a haraam (sin) and betray the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad."

The following is the full text of one 2005 speech by General Chi Haotian:Australia: Despotism is no way to do business
As everybody knows, according to the views propagated by the Western scholars, humanity as a whole originated from one single mother in Africa. Therefore, no race can claim racial superiority. However, according to the research conducted by most Chinese scholars, the Chinese are different from other races on earth. We did not originate in Africa. Instead, we originated independently in the land of China.
The Peking Man at Zhoukoudian that we are all familiar with represents a phase of our ancestors evolution. The Project of Searching for the Origins of the Chinese Civilization currently undertaken in our country is aimed at a more comprehensive and systematic research on the origin, process and development of the ancient Chinese civilization. We used to say, Chinese civilization has had a history of five thousand years. But now, many experts engaged in research in varied fields including archeology, ethnic cultures, and regional cultures have reached consensus that the new discoveries such as the Hongshan Culture in the Northeast, the Liangzhu Culture in Zhejiang province, the Jinsha Ruins in Sichuan province, and the Yongzhou Shun Emperor Cultural Site in Human province are all compelling evidence of the existence of Chinas early civilizations, and they prove that Chinas rice-growing agricultural history alone can be traced back as far as 8,000 to 10,000 years.
This refutes the concept of five thousand years of Chinese civilization.Therefore, we can assert that we are the product of cultural roots of more than a million years, civilization and progress of more than ten thousand years, an ancient nation of five thousand years, and a single Chinese entity of two thousand years. This is the Chinese nation that calls itself, descendants of Yan and Huang, the Chinese nation that we are so proud of. Hitlers Germany had once bragged that the German race was the most superior race on Earth, but the fact is, our nation is far superior to the Germans.
Yet how can this be, our eager legion of China-will-save-us enthusiasts cry. If China has weathered theglobal economic crisis better than any other power, and if the Chinese export-economy is as lean and supple as any on the planet, surely they are right to reject our own esoteric way of ordering our affairs, and to insist upon - as party jargon delights in calling it - "market socialism with Chinese characteristics"?Killings of Uighurs by China in East Turkistan

2004 Tsunami could have been more destructive
Detailing on various aspects related to the intensity of tsunami earthquake, Jayant Tripathi, head, department of earth and planetary sciences, Allahabad University, who has analysed the data related to the killer tsunami for about a year, said there is a strong possibility of occurrence of a major earthquake in the region of Andaman and Nicobar Islands in the future as the Indian plate is moving northward with a slight tilt in eastern direction. By continuous movement, the energy is getting accumulated and is locked in the subduction zone of Sunda trench near Sumatra region which was the main cause of the tsunami earthquake in 2004, he said. The probability is much higher as this region lies under high stress zone, added Tripathi.Landslide in southwest China kills at least 6
About the amount of energy released by the tsunami in 2004, Dr Tripathi said, "If one compares it with the atomic bomb explosion of Hiroshima, the energy released was as much as exploding 1.3 billion bombs of that kind.'' The Hiroshima bomb was of 12 kilotonnes intensity whereas the December 2004 tsunami was of 15 billion kilotonnes capacity, he added. Talking of energy released in tsunami, the seismologist from AU said, "if the energy released could have been trapped by any means, it could have compensated for the energy requirement throughout the world for the next 220 years.''
Had the earthquake occurred on the landmass, Tripathi said, perhaps the entire habitat of Indonesia and Sumatra would have vanished. Because of the high intensity of the tremor, a fault has been formed at the oceanic bed which is 1,300 km long and 150 km wide.

The rise of "ethno-tourism"...
Or, how horndog prolier than thou wealthy elitist liberal touristas pay plenty to gawk lasciviously at the native women of the Andaman Islands and treat them like curious monkeys in a zoo....
When the Jarawa tribe of hunter-gatherers began to emerge in ones and twos from the dense rainforests of the Andaman islands in 1997, it seemed that these mysterious, handsome people only wanted to take a brief look at the modern world and would soon return to the trees.
But in the months that followed, shy Jarawa youths slowly gained in confidence and could be found hanging out on the side of a road recently built through their land. Then they started to stop cars and buses going by, and to beg for food. They even began to board ferries to travel between the islands.
No one knows why these people - one of the original tribes of the Andaman and Nicobar islands, a remote archipelago in the Indian Ocean - decided to leave the forest at that time. Twelve years on they have become a tourist attraction. Local companies take people to gawp at and photograph them as if they are animals in a zoo. Some throw sweets and biscuits to them, or offer them lifts and money.
Muslim study based on German eugenics says man evolved in Andaman, not Africa
Allahabad University suggests that the Andaman, Nicobar Islands & south Asian islands, not Africa, spurred Darwin's glorious evolution of man! Whatever will the Chinese say? Allahabad University also believes in the missing link.... based on Haeckel... but stops short of renaming it Dirty Crusader Kuffaricus Al-Monkey Judenthropicus Horribilus Maximus.
The physical features of the four Andaman tribes -- Andamanies, Jarawa, Sentinelese and Onge show that the hypothesis propounded by eminent German biologist Ernst Haeckle that the genesis of human race has to be from a tropical country stands true. Among these, Jarawa and Sentinelese are in the purest form, untouched by the modern way of life and racial mixing, states Sahay. The remnants of earliest human culture are found in Andaman and other South Asian Island upto Tasmania, which have become extinct. "Although the island chain has always been the home of early Negrito race, but the purity diminishes as we proceed from west to east because of racial mixture that has taken place," said Sahay.SCIENCE! Ernst Haeckle, Social Darwinism, and the "Monist Leauge"
Giving details about the evidence which strengthen his observation, Sahay said that Darwin's theory about the evolution of mankind had a missing link between ape and man which was solved by Haeckle, who named this missing link as Phecanthropus, the apeman. Haeckle has propounded that it was the tropical country where mankind had lost its hairy cover and that the apeman would be fond only in the region where apes are found. In this case, gorillas and chimpanzees are found in Africa and orangutan and gibbon in Malaysia.
Everything old is new again my friends!
The publication of Ernst Haeckel's best-selling Welträtsel ('Riddle of the Universe') in 1899 brought social Darwinism and earlier ideas of racial hygiene to a very wide audience, and its recapitulation theory became famous.Haeckel's most famous quotation is
This led to the formation of the Monist League in 1904 with many prominent citizens among its members, including the Nobel Prize winner Wilhelm Ostwald. By 1909 it had a membership of some six thousand people.

Social Darwinism in Ernst Haeckel and the German Monist League,
London, Macdonald, 1971, 8vo., pp. xxxii, 208, illus., £4.
This has proved to be an important and controversial book. Its sub-title describes its contents better than the title; it is the author's thesis that Nazi ideology owed much more to science than has hitherto been admitted. It was Ernst Haeckel, with the Monist League that he founded, who, with the support of social Darwinism as propounded in his Die Weltrdtsel of 1899, produced a romantic vision of science which had a direct influence on Hitler himself. Science was, of course, distorted by the Nazis, and yet biology in particular played an important role in the origin and development of their cult. Until Professor Gasman's scholarly work appeared, it was usually thought that the reverse was the case and that fascism opposed science and most of modern culture. However, he drew upon material not previously examined and presented a convincing case that has not been seriously challenged.Haeckel's ideas on race, eugenics and euthanasia
His book is essential, therefore, for the understanding of modern Germany. But in addition it has also a general message derived from the events in Germany, where scientific, biological ideas were permitted to take on a mystical significance. This danger and its ghastly consequences should be widely recognized and a comparable situation hopefully avoided. It is the subtle, insidious growth and manipulation of scientific concepts that will interest the historian of science and medicine, and for a well-written, accurate and impeccably documented presentation of this type of malignancy Professor Gasman's book can be strongly recommended.
Consideration of the influence of pseudo-science, and of the way in which Haeckel extracted from Darwinism the pieces that suited his own theories, which concerned his own advancement and that of his country and race, are salutary indeed. Thus the historian can also benefit from this book in matters concerning the socio-intellectual make-up of the scientist. Altogether this is a challenging and highly stimulating work on the
history of scientific ideas.
And naturally his Jesus is not a Jew. Here also behold the origin of the Arab penchant for calling us apes and dogs:
The "lowest savages" such as Australian aborigines were closer to apes or even dogs in their reasoning faculties than to humans like Goethe or Darwin, Haeckel said. Jesus' noble personality was not semitic, but "more characteristic of the higher Aryan race" Haeckel believed that the Germans were racially superior and "deviated furthest from the common primary form of ape-like men"The last name along the path from Darwin to the Nazis that we need to consider is the zoologist Ernst Haeckel, Germany's best-known Darwinist and a fanatical supporter of eugenics.
World famous radical evangelical atheist Dick Dawkins is also nothing more than a ZOOLOGIST my friends. "Evolutionary Biologist" is nothing more than a bullshit euphemism for racial eugenicist. By the early twentieth century, proponents of eugenics - the "science" of racial improvement had melded evolutionary biology and incipient genetics with long-standing cultural racism. This did not go away, it only when underground, rebranded, and has reemerged relegitimitized.
