Muslims burn 75 Christian homes and 2 churches in Punjab
Islamabad - A crowd of Muslims looted and set on fire 75 houses of Christians and burned two churches in the village of Korian, Toba Tek Singh District in Punjab. Charges of alleged blasphemy against Mukhtar Masih, Talib Masih and the latter's son, Imran Maseeh unleashed the violent attack. The three are accused of having desecrated the Koran during a wedding ceremony.Indian PM asks service chief to be 'prepared'
According to local sources, the attackers came from a village near Korian. On July 30 they raided the homes of Christians and a group of them tried to stage a sort of public trial to extort apologies from Talib Masih for the act of which he was accused. The crowd then blocked the road connecting Faisalabad to Gojra and the entrance to the barracks of the village firemen, hampering rescue efforts to extinguish fires.
The security scenario in the country came up for a review at a meeting of the National Security Council chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in New Delhi on Saturday (August 1). The meeting comes in the wake of intelligence reports of possible terror threats via sea to Maharashtra and Goa, which led to the Navy and Coast Guard launching operations to locate a rogue ship in the Arabian Sea. The search by Navy and Coast Guard was still on though there was no result even 24 hours after the operation was launched, sources said.Gunman kills two at gay center in Israel

Shifting Tides Of Influence
Eighteen years after the five former Soviet republics of Central Asia became independent, outsiders continue to jockey for position in the traditional contest for influence in the region.Russia Says Georgia Fired on South Ossetia, Threatens Force
The great powers -- Russia, the United States, China, and Europe -- follow two main strategies to gain or hold sway in the region: the provision of mutual security, and the use of financial measures and trade incentives in exchange for access to enormous energy reserves.
The five states of Central Asia -- Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan -- are majority Muslim states that mark the northern limits of the Islamic world. To the south are Afghanistan and Iran, countries that outside actors and the Central Asian countries themselves view as potential sources of security problems.
Neighboring Russia and China, meanwhile, see Central Asia as a hotbed of movements linked with opposition elements within their own borders.
Central Asia's vast deposits of oil, natural gas, and uranium are the modern-day lures of a region that has an ancient history as a crossroads for trade between the East and the West. And the five nations are showing an increased readiness to play that role again, but are finding they can now demand security and trade partnerships in exchange.
Russia accused Georgia of firing at South Ossetia and warned that its troops may fight back, as the countries prepare for the first anniversary of the war over the separatist region. Georgia denied the claims.Ukraine May Get $1.7 Billion From International Lenders for Gas

By Matt Taibbi
So let me get this straight. Goldman Sachs employees are so used to criticism and the free exchange of ideas that they flounder once they’re in public office, where “no one questions their premises” and “it’s hard to get good feedback”? Am I having an acid flashback, or is this the same Heidi Moore who 360 words ago was bitching about how Paulson, Kashkari, and Liddy faced such heated resistance to their “premises” after leaving Goldman?Big Banks Paid $32 Billion in Bonuses While Losing $81 Billion
This Moore piece, it shows how desperate the game has gotten for Goldman. They and their shills are reduced now to arguing that they make their money because their employees pat each other on the back and do trust-falls to instill mutual confidence in each other. The whole world is throwing heavy subpoenas and damning stacks of numbers at them, and they’re coming back with, “We succeed because we let a smile be our umbrella.” This shit is literally as weak as it gets.

Iceland Approves Capital Account Liberalization Strategy
Capital Account Liberalization Strategy? Sounds bad to me ... watch for the phrase and the idea to start getting play here very soon.
To avoid economic instability, the capital controls will be lifted in stages, the central bank said. Restrictions on foreign currency inflows for new investment will be removed first. The new capital out of Iceland will be permitted once again, provided the new investment has been registered with the central bank. This first stage of liberalization is expected to have a limited or positive impact on the foreign exchange reserves.
Further, the next phase of the strategy - the removal of restriction on capital outflow will be implemented upon the fulfillment of certain conditions. The central bank is set to present the phases of the strategy in detail on August 5, 2009.

Frank Lombard Eno Commons Commune Developer is Sherri Zann Rosenthal.SAIC Wins $388 Million DHS Contract
Sherri Zann Rosenthal is the developer of the communal cohousing development where Frank Lombard, the Duke University professor and gay pedophile rapist dad lives with his partner Kenneth Shipp. Shipp is also a staff member at Duke University.
Sherri Zann Rosenthal's Zann Developments LLC created Eno Commons where Frank Lombard and his partner, Kenneth Shipp live. She is a city attorney in Durham, N.C. where this awful scene is playing out. Rosenthal is an openly gay activist, and her partner, Daya Breckinridge is on the Nursing school staff at Duke University and owns 'Yoga in the Hood' studio.
In a webpage describing Eno Commons says this:People of all ages, races, religious beliefs, and affectional preferences are invited to make Eno Commons their home.On another webpage there's this:Open to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and/or Transgender membersThere are 22 households in Eno Commons consisting of 38 adults. There are 22 children, of which 11% "identify as 'people of color' (all are children)." The website directs the reader to an article in IndyWeek which interviews gay and lesbian parents about the legal travails of being same-sex parents. The article is centered around Cathy Surles and Kelly Rimer and their two adopted boys. The Surles-Rimer family lives in Eno Commons.
Restrictions on Romantic Relationships (between consenting adults): No
I know you remember that Durham and Duke University were in the Nation's headlights for a couple of years after some Duke Lacrosse players were accused of raping an "exotic dancer." In the end, the young men were cleared and all charges were dropped, but it is odd how some working for the city and some working for Duke seem to have connections.
Sherri Zann Rosenthal works in the Durham City Attorney's Office. Her position is unclear. At times I've read that she is a an assistant City Attorney. Tracey Cline became the first Black and first woman to be elected as Durham District Attorney. She was second chair to Mike Nifong, the District Attorney at the time, who tried his darndest to take the Lacrosse players to trial. Cline claimed that she knew absolutely nothing about Nifong railroading the defendents in the rape case, but who believes that? She was the backup prosecutor, and she won the election for District Attorney anyway. Also listed as a part of the Durham city offices is Sharon A. Thompson of the Sharon Thompson Law Group. She is heavily involved with gay and lesbian parents.
Then we move to Duke University where the nursing program was front and center with medical evidence used against the Lacrosse players. As a supposed-victim, Crystal Magnum claimed she was raped, was treated at the Duke University Medical Center. It's confusing and I'm just going to skim the surface, but a nurse there was rushed through receiving certain credentials (SANE) to allow her to testify against the Lacrosse players. Her name is Tara Livecy. She was charged with giving false and misleading evidence, or something close to that. The Duke University Medical Center was implicated for "breaching it's duties."
Whether connected or not, I have to ask, what in the world is going on in Durham and at Duke? Frank Lombard worked for Duke before his arrest. He is now on leave and you can't find him anywhere on the University's website. His gay partner, Kenneth Shipp works at Duke. Daya Breckenbridge, Sherri Zann Rosenthal's lesbian partner works for Duke. Was her nursing supervisor possibly Theresa Arico - also implicated in the charges against Tara Livecy? And we find that Lombard and Shipp live in the commune developed by Rosenthal, advertised to be welcoming to all manner of gender and sexual descriptions - and where children live in "paradise."
Where is Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? Surely they are outraged at what this White guy did to this little Black boy. Come on Reverends! Let's hear what you have to say.

P-8A secretly acquires mission to rival Joint STARS
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) was founded in 1969 by J. Robert Beyster "and a small group of scientists ... as a scientific consulting firm with a handful of government contracts for nuclear power and nuclear weapons effects study programs.... Over the years, the company has expanded into national and homeland security programs, non-nuclear energy studies, health care systems, environment-related businesses, information technologies, high-technology products, telecommunications, transportation and eSolutions services and products for commercial and government customers."
In 1990 SAIC was indicted and pled guilty to 10 felony counts of fraud on a Superfund site, called “one of the largest (cases) of environmental fraud” in Los Angeles history.  SAIC had some 44,000 employees and took in $8 billion in 2006. SAIC "is larger than the departments of Labor, Energy, and Housing and Urban Development combined," reported Vanity Fair.  "SAIC's largest customer by far is the U.S. government, which accounts for 69 percent of its business," according to the Center for Public Integrity. 
The Boeing P-8A Poseidon has secretly acquired a new role for the US Navy that will transform the maritime patrol aircraft into a rival of the US Air Force's Northrop Grumman E-8C Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (JSTARS). Details of the mission surfaced today in a press release issued by Raytheon, which announced receiving a multi-year contract to develop an advanced new radar for the P-8A programme. According to Raytheon, the advanced airborne sensor (AAS) will become a successor to the littoral surveillance radar system (LSRS), which is operational today on a small subset of the Lockheed P-3C fleet.Armed Woman Reportedly Concerned About FEMA CAMPS Arrested In NY, Sent to Shrink
The New York Post ran an article August 1st entitled GUN NUT' BUSTED AT BASE, which begins:Feds question urban security and preparedness
"A Long Island mother of three -- armed to the teeth with an assault rifle and shotgun -- was arrested for scouting out and taking pictures of an Air National Guard base in the Hamptons, authorities said."
The article goes on to allege that Nancy Genovese was "trespassing outside the Gabreskie Airport ANG facility Thursday night, and Homeland Security and the FBI are also investigating". This begs the question, how is she 'trespassing' if she was outside the base? Is this another case of "it's illegal to film" government buildings?" The woman was then held for a "psychiatric examination" after she allegedly went "berserk" in court. On first guess, I would bet that a forced mental health hold may be enough under their 'law' to be used as a pretext to seize her guns. Sheriff Joseph Caracappa is quoted in the article saying they guns are "registered", but "scary" weapons, despite the fact that there are no laws requiring gun "registration".
Suspect in abortion doctor slaying chastises Operation Rescue
The language of deception is everywhere. First of all, he ain't a suspect, stupid headline, he IS the shooter. With a suspect we have doubt, we must prove... this dude killed him outright, period. He is not a "suspect".... we are not in any doubt about who gunned Tiller down. No one wants to say what's who anymore, ever, on either side.
And second of all, Tiller was no "doctor". Yeah he had the degree and this gives him the title DOCTOR, but he was nothing more than a murderer, as is Roeder. He did zero to heal, all he ever did with his "doctor" credentials was kill. Listen to Tiller in his own voice. He was closer to being a professional hitman for the eugenics movement or a deranged serial killer than a "doctor", and I am entirely sick of reading glowing pieces about this GOOD DOCTOR who was so brutally gunned down in his CHURCH and all the wonderful selfless things he was doing for womankind. MFer was a full time murderer. Period. And he enjoyed it. How much more full of shit you can all be before you spontaneously combust is beyond me.
Anyway, both of these guys came directly from hell and directly to hell they shall return. I hope they are chained together for all eternity, they deserve each other richly. These types usually hate each other so viscerally precisely because they recognize what they hate most in themselves in each other. Two peas in a bloody murderous pod are Roeder and Tiller. Both of them felt like righteous crusaders for their respective causes, both of them killed for very similar reasons at the essence of it, and both of them justify their murders in very similar ways.
In the letter, Roeder chided Newman for seeking protection for himself after getting death threats from abortion rights supporters following Tiller's shooting.He's right of course. Operation Rescue guy was most definitely trying to cover his ass, and Roeder's statement there about mass silence based on fear of persecution is right on. But he could not possibly be more wrong. So all his right becomes an absolute zero, a detriment. It is never about being "right" in any situation... it is about how you personally handle what is "right". And gunning this vile asshole Tiller down was not the answer here. Far from it. All Roeder did was provide an extrodinarly evil ideology with it's first glorious martyr to the cause. Idiot. He could not have done them a bigger propaganda solid had he been actively on their side. Matter of fact if the Abortiacs were really smart Bad Vlad style political plotters they would have shot Tiller themselves, long ago. Best thing that ever happened to them.
"Why is it so difficult to proclaim the humanity of the unborn child? Could it be that this is so politically incorrect and there might and most probably would come a wave of persecution along with it," Roeder wrote.

'Volcano-like' explosion near Kaza
On July 27 people in Rangrik village claimed to have heard and seen an explosion atop a nearby hill top, which they claimed was similar to volcanic eruption. This was followed by landslides and water gushing out of the hill continuously.Volcano erupts in Lahaul and Spiti
While there is only one live volcano on the Indian soil – Barrel islands in Andaman and Nicobar – the local people fear this could be another one. However, geologists in Himachal Pradesh University though rule out this theory, they claim the explosion could be due to presence of sulphor and hydro-thermal gases. Tenzin Samphal from Kullu, who talked to relatives in Rangrik said people there had been waiting for the administration to probe the matter but there has been no response. Meanwhile, they plan to trek the mountain themselves to have a closer look at the place whom where now water seems to be gushing down.
A live volcano has come to light in Rangrik village of Lahaul and Spiti district, 425 kms from here. The volcano, according to locals erupted on the Wednesday evening. “We heard a blast on the hill and a then flames came out from the eruption site followed by molten material," Tanpa Lama, a local Buddhist preacher said. Ashwani Ramesh, SDM, Kaza has confirmed the volcano eruption and said that a team of geologists and revenue officers has been sent to Rangrik village. “We have sent a team of revenue officials to take stock of the situation," Ashwani Ramesh said.
