The News You Missed

Once again, the blogosphere does what your average international newsagent cannot: tell you what's really going on in the world. So, in the interest of "paying it forward" I bring you links to the world outside your door that lingers right at your fingertips. Click!

OU Suicide (Bombings): http://mypetjawa.mu.nu/archives/124635.php Apparently this was a little more than a cry for help from a stringy white male with low self-esteem. Bomb squads and Justice Department-sealed search warrants later, it has been gathered that the student who blew himself up outside the OU football stadium last weekend was planning a suicide bombing attack that has proved to be part of a larger Islamic terror scheme.

Yesterday, the media was informed that, according to a new BBC documentary, George W. Bush told Abu Mazen that it was G-d who told him to invade Iraq and make peace between Israel and the Palestinians. The BBC's sources for this notworthy story? Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas and former foreign minister Nabil Shaath. I hesitated commenting on this story yesterday after reading the initial press release via Drudge, but now I feel the need to draw attention to the huge white elephant in the middle of the story. THE BBC'S ONLY SOURCES ON THIS STORY ARE PALESTINIANS, AND IT IS CONSIDERED CREDIBLE?!?!?!?! Hm. Using quotes from untrustworthy murderers and thieves in an advertising ploy to hype a documentary focusing on the most pressing issue on the world stage. That's professional journalism.

In more fascinating news that you're not reading, this article telling Democrats to stop being so damned liberal appeared in today's Washington Post. Two Clinton democrats released a study on voting demographics yesterday that included a staunch warning to the party of the people: "In one of their more potentially controversial findings, the authors argue that the rising numbers and influence of well-educated, socially liberal voters in the Democratic Party are pulling the party further from most Americans." I guess that whole "Invade the Disillusioned Upper Classmen" strategy of the 1930s is backfiring. If only Whittaker Chambers were here today. You have to wonder, though, would Alger Hiss be considered a threat to today's Democrats?

Israpundit is loaded with links to and commentary on brilliant articles:
Syria is Coming to a Boil
The Sickening Irony of "The War on Terror"
The excellent Caroline Glick's latest Op/Ed Anti-Zionist Show Trials
The "Contiguous Palestinian State" Myth
Bush wants total victory over terror - but not when they're "Palestinian" from which I quote: "However, the Bush Administration fails to adhere to its firm position on the dangers of and solution to Islamic terror when the perpetrators are Palestinian Arabs and the victims Israeli Jews."

Michael Totten has more on the upcoming war between Lebanon and Syria in his latest blog entry.
