VIENNA, Austria — The UN atomic watchdog has been unable to make much progress in its investigation into alleged illicit nuclear activities in Syria, a senior UN official said Friday."There's not much progress, if anything," the official said in response to a new report by the International Atomic Energy Agency on its probe into allegations that Damascus had been building a covert nuclear reactor at a remote desert site until it was bombed by Israeli planes in September 2007.IAEA extends probe of alleged secret Syria atom site
Syria Clenches Its Fist
The Obama administration's outreach to Syria had been clear and forthright. It included six high-level visits by U.S. officials to Syria, Washington's announcement that it would return an ambassador to Damascus, a reported letter from President Obama to President Assad, and the facilitation of export licenses for aircraft parts waived under U.S. sanctions against Syria. A Centcom-led delegation visited Damascus two weeks ago and concluded a tentative agreement with Syria on a technical assessment of Iraqi-Syrian border posts. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, miffed at being left out of these promising talks, visited Damascus last week to seal the tripartite deal. The string of blasts that greeted him upon his return on Aug. 19 -- the bloodiest in more than 18 months and now claimed by an al Qaeda affiliate -- has led Baghdad to demand that Syria expel Iraqi Baathists and jihadi militants from its soil and recall its ambassador. Damascus responded in kind, effectively blowing up Washington's initiative on the launchpad.UN's Ban Calls On Palestinians to Unite for Talks

The Jizyah Tax – Equality And Dignity Under Islamic Law!
In the West, at least in constitution terms, however inadequately outworked in practice in some places, the equality of human beings is a fundamental assumption "all men are equal before the law". For this reason, Justice is often depicted in statues as blindfolded; the class, religion or race of anyone is irrelevant the law, at least in terms of its goal, applies equally to everyone, and safeguards everyone equally.Defamation Of Islam Imperils Relations Among Nations, Says Ihsanoglu
In Islamic law, however, this is simply not the case. The life of a Muslim is considered superior to that of a non-Muslim, so much so that whilst a non-Muslim killing a Muslim would be executed, the reverse would not occur.
Defamation of Islam represents one of the most conspicuous demonstrations of contemporary racism and intolerance, said Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) secretary-general Professor Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu. He said it also constituted a threat to harmonious and cooperative relationship between and among nations.

The Cold War nuclear arms race between the Soviet Union and the United States had begun. The United States, which had already demonstrated its nuclear capability with the deadly twin bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, dubbed the Soviet test bomb "Joe 1," after Josef Stalin. At the time, the explosion was a source of pride for the people of the Soviet Union. But that blast, and the hundreds that followed it at the 18,000-square-kilometer site at Semipalatinsk, left a legacy of misery for the people living there.

Emory psychiatrist Zachary Stowe came under fire for financial misconduct this summer after Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) alleged that Stowe had accepted large payments from GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) while serving as chief investigator on a grant that partly concerned a GSK pill.Poll: Six in 10 US Catholics ambivalent about Latin Mass
In a June 2 letter to University president James W. Wagner which was posted on the Wall Street Journal’s website, Grassley, the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, wrote that because Stowe, who has been the primary investigator of several National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants regarding the effects of depression and treatment for pregnant women, received money from GSK during the time of research involving GSK anti-depression pill Paxil, his findings may have been influenced.
After conducting an independent investigation, the University issued Stowe a letter of reprimand and corrective action plan. This forced Stowe to eliminate all current conflicts of interests on any grants and forbade him from committing any future conflicts of interests for two years, even if these conflicts could be easily circumvented or mitigated, according to a June 10 University press release. Grassley did not respond to requests to comment.
The University has taken no further actions in reprimanding Stowe, said Jeffrey Molter, vice president of health sciences communications.
