The "Elders," as they are called, are a group of prominent former heads of state, renowned activists, and global business leaders who are trying to use their clout and cachet to affect change. Included in the delegation here are former President Jimmy Carter, South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former Irish President Mary Robinson, and Britain's Richard Branson, founder of the multinational Virgin Group.ISRAEL: Never Again?

The Elders hope to reschedule a Gaza visit in the coming weeks, the group's spokesman said.

Iraqi Archbishop 'More Pessimistic Than Ever' About Christians' Future
Kirkuk, Iraq -- Louis Sako, Chaldean Archbishop of Kirkuk, has said that Iraqi Christians are facing "bad days" as "ineffective" security cannot prevent criminality and violence targeting Christian minorities. Many of the Christians who remain are in such fear that they too want to leave Iraq, he said. The future of Christianity in Iraq, even in the short term, now "hangs in the balance," Archbishop Sako said in a phone interview with the international Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN).Businessman Killed, Doctor Kidnapped -- Fear Returns to Haunt Christians in Iraq
Christians lack the protection of militia and have become "easy targets" for criminals, he reported. Violence and the lack of jobs and services have encouraged many Christians to leave. There are now only 300 Christian families in southern Iraq and less than 400,000 Christians in Iraq as a whole. Within the past decade, their numbers have declined by 750,000. In the northern city of Mosul, a former Christian heartland, many Christian families are "too afraid to come back." At one point in the interview, Archbishop Sako warned of rising extremism. "Iraq is going to a narrow form of Islam," he commented.

Ethnic Kokang rebels attacked Myanmar police patrolling a border gate in northeastern Shan state, killing at least one, the Washington-based U.S. Campaign for Burma said in a statement late yesterday. About 10,000 people had crossed into neighboring Yunnan Province in China by early today to escape what was described as a domestic war by state-controlled Xinhua News Agency, which cited the provincial government.
“The junta should withdraw its additional troops sent to Kokang,” Peng Jiasheng, who heads the local rebel army, said in a statement released through U.S. Campaign for Burma. He called a new committee set up by the regime to administer the area “illegal and illegitimate.”
The Kokang are one of the ethnic groups on Myanmar’s borders that agreed to join the state in 1947 in return for autonomy.

Uzbekistan: New Abuse of Jailed Dissident
Uzbek authorities should promptly investigate new allegations of abuse against a political prisoner, Yusuf Jumaev, and ensure that his family is permitted regular visits, Human Rights Watch said today. Jumaev's daughter, Feruza Jumaeva, who saw him on August 17, 2009, told Human Rights Watch that Jumaev was beaten by a prison guard not long before her visit. She said that she saw bruises on his body, which he told her came from being beaten, and that he told her he continues to be subject to insults and humiliation.Four 15-day prison sentences for regular, registered worship services
"The abuse of this peaceful poet and dissident needs to stop," said Holly Cartner, Europe and Central Asia director at Human Rights Watch. "Jumaev should never have been imprisoned in the first place, and Uzbek authorities should free him without delay." Jumaeva told Human Rights Watch that her father said the beating was carried out by Jamshid Atoev, a member of the prison staff who oversees one of the prisoner brigades. The guard reportedly approached Jumaev as he was sitting in the exercise yard, and delivered a strong punch to his spine.
Jumaev told his daughter that when he asked why he was being beaten, Atoev punched him repeatedly in the chest area and the head. Jumaev is among the many dissidents and human rights activists jailed by the Uzbek authorities on political grounds. He is a poet and political dissident who called for President Islam Karimov's resignation in the period before the country's presidential election in December 2007. He has suffered repeated abuse in prison.
Some twenty Anti-Terror Police officers raided the regular Sunday afternoon worship service of the registered Donam Protestant church in the capital Tashkent on 23 August, claiming it was "unauthorised". Seven church members were arrested and Christian literature was confiscated, Protestants told Forum 18 News Service. Three men were soon freed but four – including the church's pastor, Vladimir Tyo – were sentenced to 15-day prison terms for "violation of the procedure for organising and conducting meetings", even though the regular service was included in the required quarterly report to the city Justice Department. The court verdict also records that the judge ordered the confiscated literature destroyed without giving any reason. Raids on both registered and unregistered religious communities, fines, imprisonment and confiscation of religious literature are frequent in Uzbekistan.TAJIKISTAN: Recalling the Good Old Soviet Union

Ex-CIA spy's son pleads guilty to conspiracy
"The ACLU believes that suspicionless searches of laptops violate the First and Fourth Amendments," the group wrote in the suit, filed in a New York District Court.
In July 2008, the Customs and Border Protection agency within DHS published formal guidelines for laptop border searches that gave CBP officials permission to search laptops and electronic devices at the border. Court cases on the topic have generally found that citizens should have diminished expectations of privacy when re-entering the country because the U.S. has a right to protect itself and control what crosses its borders.
Critics of the policy claim that laptop searches are an invasion of privacy – a personal computer holds a lot more information than a suitcase full of clothes or briefcase full of paperwork. What's to stop CBP from copying the contents of your computer and keeping it on file indefinitely, they have argued
As a result, the ACLU wants to know exactly what types of data the government has collected. The organization first filed a Freedom of Information request in June 2009, but after some back and forth between the ACLU and DHS, the ACLU said that it had "exhausted the applicable administrative remedies" and that "DHS and its components have wrongfully withheld the requested records from the ACLU."
The ACLU wants DHS to hand over the documents, waive any fees associated with document recovery, and pay the organization's costs and attorneys' fees.

Czarist Insanity In America Part 2
Colorado Citizens’ Coalition, a 527 pressure group, may have been behind an attack on a Democratic Party office in Denver calculated to depict opponents of ObamaCare as violent.
Maurice Schwenkler, reportedly an anarchist who goes by the name Ariel Attack and whose sex is a subject of debate, was arrested for vandalizing the Denver office. One available photograph shows a shattered window that bears two signs on the inside reading “Want Health Care Reform? Come Inside” and “Today 100 Coloradans will lose their health insurance.” The damage to the windows may cost $10,000 to repair.
Colorado Democratic Party chairwoman Pat Waak appeared to blame opponents of President Obama’s healthcare nationalization scheme for the vandalism. “Clearly there’s been an effort on the other side to stir up hate,” she said. “I think this is the consequence of it.”
Waak has not yet apologized.

The United Nations is recommending that children as young as five receive mandatory sexual education that would teach even pre-kindergarteners about masturbation and topics like gender violence.

"informed approach to effective sex, relationships" and HIV education that they say is essential for "all young people."
The U.N. insists the program is "age appropriate," but critics say it's exposing kids to sex far too early, and offers up abstract ideas — like "transphobia" — they might not even understand. "At that age they should be learning about ... the proper name of certain parts of their bodies," said Michelle Turner, president of Citizens for a Responsible Curriculum, "certainly not about masturbation." Turner was disturbed by UNESCO's plans to explain to children as young as nine about the safety of legal abortions, and to advocate and "promote the right to and access to safe abortion" for everyone over the age of 15.
