    @mrubin1971Two news stories from recent weeks, if true, should raise a red flag in the United States that Iran is preparing to use Hezbollah to strike at U.S. interests in Latin America, if not in the United States itself.First, this story from the Lebanese news portal Naharnet and sourced in part to Israeli radio. The Naharnet story was taken down shortly after it appeared: Hezbollah is using a training base established by Iran in northern Nicaragua near the border with Honduras, the Israeli radio reported on Thursday [September 6]. “The area is cordoned off and there are around 30 members...

    The New Media Journal ^ | January 28, 2006 | Jim Kouri
    When asked by the media for his thoughts on the Hamas triumph in the Palestinian parliamentary elections, former President Jimmy Carter replied that while they have a terrorist past, at least they're not corrupt. One of the complaints by many in the Middle East was the corruption within the Palestinian Authority and Yasser Arafat's Fatah Party. Arafat himself squirreled away millions of dollars from aid packages that were intended to help the Palestinian people. However, Carter's comment appears to dismiss the years of death and destruction perpetrated by Hamas on the Jewish State. One of the first statements made by...

Despite tens of thousands of references to Mr. Abbas as prime minister, he in not a single way fits this description.Oh, and there is also the matter of there being no country called Palestine.

    Here's a sobering thought: If you ever hurled a bowling ball at any of the pins at Greenwich Village's Bowl mor Lanes, you might have been subsidizing terror. Or, at least, contributing to Yasser Arafat's hopes for a nice profit on funds he . . . ummm, "invested" — as opposed to improving the circumstances of impoverished Palestinians. That's the upshot of a report this week from Bloomberg Markets magazine, which details the far-flung investments made on behalf of the late and unlamented Palestinian terror chief. The report says Arafat "diverted" — that is, skimmed — tax revenue from...

    There is much talk of post-election reorganization and rethinking among demoralized liberals, especially in matters of foreign policy. They could start by accepting that the demise of many of their cherished beliefs and institutions was not the fault of others. More often, the problems are fundamental flaws in their own thinking — such as the ends of good intentions justifying the means of expediency and untruth, and forced equality being a higher moral good than individual liberty and freedom. Whether we call such notions “political correctness” or “progressivism,” the practice of privileging race, class, and gender over basic ethical considerations...

    CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Fathi Arafat, the brother of late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and founder of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society, died Wednesday. He was 67. Arafat died at 5:20 p.m. at the Palestine Hospital in suburban Cairo, where he had been receiving treatment for stomach cancer, said Mae Arif, spokeswoman for the Palestinian Red Crescent Society. Arafat, a physician, was the hospital's director. In New York City, Arafat's nephew, Nasser al-Kidwa, the Palestinian envoy to the United Nations, mourned his death. "He was not only an uncle but he was a friend, a personal friend I think," al-Kidwa...

You can read about this preliminary study in Nature Medicine. It is being called the first demonstration of an efficient therapeutic vaccine against AIDS. 18 volunteers were involved in the trial.

Four months after taking the experimental vaccine their levels of HIV (in the bloodstream) had gone down 80%. 8...

    The Al-Aksa Brigades terror group, which has just been renamed the "Arafat Brigades," unveiled a new weapon today: the “Yasser" rocket. It can hit the fuel refineries on the Ashkelon coast. The new weapon is appropriately named for the deceased arch-terrorist who founded Fatah. The Yasser has a range of 15 kilometers (9 miles), putting the populous Israeli city of Ashkelon within striking distance of Gaza-launched missiles. It is said to be almost ready for activation. Members of the terror gang paraded through the streets of Gaza City today, displaying the new rocket and declaring their intention to begin firing...

The PA security services had difficulty enforcing order. The unruly and volatile funeral continues as this report goes to press.

    Key Facts Arafat has often claimed that he was born in Jerusalem, though his birth certificate indicates that his actual place of birth was Cairo, Egypt in 1929. He moved to live with his uncle in Jerusalem after the death of his mother in 1933.In the late 1950's, Arafat helped found the Fatah movement. Beginning as early as 1965, Fatah launched various terrorist attacks against Israeli targets. Fatah is Arabic for "conquest" and the name refers to the Islamic idea that once a land has been under Muslim control, it can never return to non-Muslim rule.In 1969, Arafat was elected...

    The Palestinians now have their own Anna Nicole Smith. Yasser Arafat's wife is jockeying for position to retain as large a portion of his "personal" wealth, which has been estimated to be close to a billion dollars. She has been living a life of luxury in France for the last 4 years, and wants to have French law determine the distribution of her husband's assets (just about everything goes to the spouse). The Palestinian leadership, of course, want to get those dollars back to work financing the intifada. It's getting increasingly difficult to raise new money in the era of...

    "I think it's very important for our friends, the Israelis, to have a peaceful Palestinian state living on their border. And it's very important for the Palestinian people to have a peaceful, hopeful future." So spoke President Bush just two days after his re-election, just exactly as news reports were leaking Yasser Arafat's demise.The combination of Mr. Bush's stunning new mandate and Mr. Arafat's near-death condition will lead, I predict, to a quick revival of Palestinian-Israeli diplomacy after months of relative doldrums and to massive dangers to Israel.The doldrums will cease because the Bush administration views Mr. Arafat as the...

    I have been asked whether the death of Arafat will open the doors to peace between the so-called Palestinians and the Israelis. If the past is any indication, the answer is no. It is important to understand that Palestinians are Arabs. They have little or no experience with elections and, more importantly, the rule of law. Nothing protects Arabs from each other. Who, I am asked, will be Arafat’s successor? It hardly matters. Whoever is designated--not elected--the next prime minister will be more concerned with not being assassinated by his political enemies than with negotiating peace with the Israelis. Indeed,...

Palestinian envoy Leila Shahid told the BBC that his health had suffered a setback, but gave no further details. Her statement followed rumours that Mr Arafat had been vomiting and lapsing in and out of consciousness, before being moved to intensive care. Blood tests have already revealed that 75-year-old Mr Arafat has a low count of platelets, which are needed for clotting, but doctors are unsure of what is causing the condition. Doctors'...
