ACT! for America 5.25.08

Below you will find a list with an introduction to the article by ACT! for America. These are interesting, disgusting, scary, offensive, and uplifting articles. Uplifting how? When we crush the enemy, of course!

"A Medal for Brass:" Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal's Chilling Fraudulent Ad in US Media In the end, it was consultations with an independent expert on the Vatican and interviews with several recipients that solved the mystery: The medal shown in the ad is a common souvenir. It is minted each year by the thousand and handed out as a memento to those granted an audience with the pope. All the staffers at the American embassy to the Holy See, for instance, have received it. It was given to White House officials when Pope Benedict met with Bush. It is for sale at the Vatican bookstore. It confers no honor at all.

"Muslim immigrants sue CIS and FBI for delays in citizenship process:" Ingrates? ''They don't want to bring a suit against the government,'' said Khan. ''They fear they might be red-flagged.'' When Hussain, 34, approached the Orlando office of CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), which is helping the plaintiffs, he was unsure if he wanted to add his name. ''He said, 'Am I going to go against the government?''' recalled Danette Zaghari-Mask, Orlando executive director. But he had tried every avenue to speed up his citizenship application, including calling and visiting immigration offices in Orlando. The holdup, he was eventually told, was his name.

Perfection Demand only of Little Israel That Connecticut newspaper columnist approvingly quoted a letter written by a hundred anti-Israel British Jews denouncing the country's anniversary: "We will celebrate when Arabs and Jews live as equals in a peaceful Middle East." Of course such equality is to be attempted first not by democratizing Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, or Iran but by erasing the border that protects the smallest tribe so that it falls under the sovereignty of the very nations that drove it out and then three times waged war against it. Any such peace will be only the peace of the grave -- which has been the idea all along.

"The Fall of Lebanon:" Appeasement by the West that Churchil saw in 1938 at Munich Yes, that's it exactly. On every point, Hizballah, Iran, and Syria, got all they wanted from Lebanon's government: its surrender of sovereignty. They have veto power over the government; one-third of the cabinet; election changes to ensure victory in the next balloting; and they will have their candidate installed as president.

America in Ashes? Former Clinton Secretary of Defense William Perry and former Assistant Secretary of Defense Graham Allison are among those who have estimated that chance at more than 50 percent over the next decade. That is, two respected experts in the field believe that the nuclear destruction of one or more American urban centers is more probable than not in the very near future. Al-Qaeda keeps increasing the number of Americans it publicly dreams of killing in its nuclear hellstorm. In 2002, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, Osama bin Laden's former official press spokesman, claimed the right for jihadis "to kill four million Americans." Just one year later, in his fatwa declaring the use of WMD obligatory, Nasir al-Fahd put the number of Americans that it is permissible to kill without further ado at 10 million souls, roughly 3 million of them children.

"Swearing on the Koran:" Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison interviewed by Al Ahram Although Ellison is taking part in efforts made by the US State Department to improve America's image worldwide, especially in Muslim and Arab countries, he took the liberty of criticising American policies on the Middle East. "Because of our lack of even-handedness in the Israeli- Palestinian conflict, many people in the Muslim world have doubted our commitment to democracy, doubted our commitment in promoting civil and human rights. The invasion of Iraq has done real damage to the reputation of the US," he said.

"Counterterror staff falls to 62%:" says Muslim American FBI agent 'whistleblower' The FBI's highest-ranking Arab-American agent and an FBI whistleblower who is suing the bureau for discrimination, Mr. Youssef cited a March 5 FBI e-mail sent to all counterterrorism employees at FBI headquarters in Washington that said: "Executive management is canvassing the division for volunteers to be permanently assigned to ITOS 1. This is due to the fact that ITOS 1 is currently at 62% of its funded staffing level."

Exeter Nail bomber in U.K. is Moslem convert A Muslim convert was being held tonight after two bombs were found in a family restaurant toilet following an explosion at lunchtime. Police and bomb disposal teams were called in after a young white man apparently attempted to detonate a nail bomb. Diners heard three blasts which sounded like gunshots go off in a toilet at the Giraffe cafe in Exeter city centre as they were having lunch today.

Military Outsiders Who Succeeded In Iraq Would Be Useful On Inside The annual spring list of Army colonels promoted to brigadier generals will be shortly released. Already, rumors suggest that this year, unlike in the recent past, a number of maverick officers who have distinguished themselves fighting -- and usually defeating -- insurgents in Afghanistan and Iraq will be chosen.

Boy, 12, Beheads Man In Al Qaeda Video In the village of Spinkai-Roghzai where a group of journalists including CBS News were taken by Pakistan's military on Sunday in the Waziristan tribal region, officials showed debris of what is described as a suicide training 'nursery'. Under a pile of bricks lay the remains of an oil extracting factory which was a cover for training young boys to become ideologically charged up.
