Book delves into frigate scandal  11/30/03 BBC: "And yet in France all efforts to cast light on the affair are stymied. In Taiwan, by contrast, the furore generated by the scandal helped bring down the Kuomintang regime in 2000, and the new government has made sure judges have access to all but the most highly-classified documents. "The reputation of France has been seriously stained," concludes Mr Jean-Pierre. "And when I compare our old democracy with Taiwan, a country where martial law was only lifted a short while ago, I am seized by shame." "

How British charity was silenced on Iraq  11/28/03 Guardian, UK: "One of Britain's most high-profile charities was ordered to end criticism of military action in Iraq by its powerful US wing to avoid jeopardising financial support from Washington and corporate donors, a Guardian investigation has discovered.

topDick Gregory Comments On Michael Jackson  11/24/03 Black World Today: "He asked why was it necessary for 40 police officers and 20 FBI agents to raid Michael Jackson's property? More specifically, why were FBI agents present, especially since the allegations against Mr. Jackson are not a federal offense? He also questioned the legitimacy of the claim of law enforcement that they did not know of Mr. Jackson's whereabouts and the timing of the raid. According to Mr. Gregory, there is a monetary element to this entire situation. He states that Michael Jackson purchased the Beatles catalog for nearly $48 million and it is now worth $1.5 billion. He also owns the rights to the Elvis catalog and found out after his purchase of the Beatles collection that these rights also included ownership of Little Richard's catalog of which, Michael Jackson promptly called Mr. Richard and returned it to him. His suspicions arise from the fact that Michael Jackson has taken out loans and his lenders wanted collateral, which was none other than his Beatles catalog."

Turks, Kurds were bombers  11/24/03 Sydney Morning Herald: "The four suicide bombers who murdered more than 50 people in Istanbul last week have been identified as Turkish citizens and ethnic Kurds with strong links to al-Qaeda. Turkish authorities and local media say that all four come from the troubled south-eastern Turkish city of Binjol and knew each other well. In recent years members of the group are also known to have visited Afghanistan, where they are believed to have received indoctrination and training. One alleged associate arrested after the Thursday attacks on the British consulate and the HSBC Bank is reported to have fought for the Muslim cause in Chechnya and Bosnia while another had training in Pakistan."

Were the Feds Capable of Killing Kennedy?  11/24/03 The Future of Freedom Foundation: "Unfortunately, we may never know all the answers to the Kennedy assassination because of two undeniable conspiracies entered into by U.S. officials immediately after it occurred: the conspiracy not to aggressively investigate whether there were other people who shot at President Kennedy and the conspiracy to keep the government’s investigative files into the assassination secret from the American people until the year 2029, when missing and destroyed evidence would be nothing more than a historical curiosity. If those two conspiracies had never been entered into, the central questions of who killed Kennedy and who covered the murder up would probably have been settled long ago."


"There is one safeguard known generally to the wise, which is an advantage and security to all, but especially to Democracies as against despots: suspicion." -- Demosthenes

Estimates of the total number of Muslims range from 0.7 to 1.2 billion worldwide and 3 to 6 million in the U.S. About 20% of all people on earth follow Islam. The religion is in a period of rapid growth.

Christianity is currently the largest religion in the world. It is followed by about 33% of all people -- a percentage that has remaind stable for decades. It is expected that, if current trends continue, Islam will become the most popular religion sometime in the mid-21st century.
