You may have heard me say in the past with regards to the idea that if you critique Israel, you are being anti-semitic, "Judaism is a religion, and Israel is a country. If you critique Israel's Government, that doesn't mean you are critiquing Judaism. They have corrupt Government officials just like we do." Here is a perfect example of that. - Jon

JERUSALEM — Israel's scandal-tainted Prime Minister Ehud Olmert resigned on Sunday, local television reported, setting the stage for more weeks of political turmoil as the horse-trading begins to form a new government.
Olmert submitted his resignation to President Shimon Peres, who now has a week to designate the party leader who will form the next government, the television said.
Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, who replaced Olmert as head of the centrist Kadima party in a leadership vote on Wednesday, is hoping to become only the second woman prime minister in the nation's history.

Internet attacks on 9/11 Truth intensify
Cloned YouTube accounts just latest move toward limiting political speech on internet

Internet censorship is once again in the news after legendary YouTube user Nuffrespect posted a new video detailing the latest online attack on 9/11 Truth: a user who is creating clones of respected user accounts and truth movement leaders in order to smear 9/11 Truth by posting racist comments. These have already led to the deletion of several well-known accounts in what has been revealed as a coordinated effort to eliminate 9/11 Truth from YouTube.
This is in addition to the news that YouTube deleted a number of videos and accounts last week at the behest of Senator Joe Lieberman.
About half of this week's new entries concern United Airlines Flight 93. The airline's operations centre sent a message to the plane's co-pilot some minutes before the hijacking, but received no reply; it also notified flights of a crash at the WTC around 9:03 but did not send a warning about possible hijackings at this time. The airline's dispatchers were asked to warn flights at 9:21, the same time Flight 93 sent a routine message to one of the dispatchers. A couple of minutes later, it checked in with Cleveland air traffic control; the pilots then sent their last last message at 9:27.

(I wonder how long it takes to build a truck bomb.)
Let me see if I got this straight now.
Over the past 7 years we have dumped billions and billions of dollars into Pakistan to help with the Global War on Terror™. Yet, we know that former President Musharraf spent much of that money beefing up his military presence on the border of India, while another large part of that money, just went missing. Some of that money was traced to election fraud attempts. All of this, and the accepted wisdom is that the Taliban and bin Laden, are in Pakistan (of course I think he is dead, but that is beside the point).
When Musharraf lost the election, he shut down the democracy in Pakistan and arrested judges and opposition party leaders. Eventually, Pakistan shamed us by actually impeaching their president for corruption, while ours gets off Scott-Free thanks to Nancy Pelosi and a complicit congress.
Along comes a new President, President Asif Zardari, one that isn’t in the pocket of BushCo and low and behold, we start ramping up the rhetoric about needing to attack inside Pakistan “when ever we feel like it“.
Wall Street crisis rattles dreams for new towers at World Trade Center site
BY DOUGLAS FEIDEN
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER
With several financial giants collapsing - and others teetering - many experts wonder who will occupy the Freedom Tower and other World Trade Center skyscrapers developed by Larry Silverstein.
The basis of the official narrative is that 19 devoted muslim warriors, willing to commit suicide in an attack against its enemies, hijacked 4 aeroplanes on 9/11 and slammed them into the WTC towers, sacrificing their own lives in the process. I just want to remind viewers and readers of the videos of (presumably) "the last will" of Mohammad Atta and Ziad Jarrah, which seem to suggest very strongly, that Atta and Jarrah was NOT dedicated, suicidal jihadis, but rather imposters who couldn't keep their pokerface as they posed as dangerous and serious suicide bombers and terrorists.
And what does that mean in the whole, official narrative of 9/11?
9/11 firefighter faces cancer
His vocal cords were harmed in surgery
By RAY DUCKLER

Bernie Cornell speaks in a raspy voice, without the boom it had before.
That was one of Cornell's trademarks, a voice that wrapped you in a bear hug, no matter the topic.
Cornell's thyroid cancer is the topic these days. And the potential connection between the Sept. 11 attacks and his illness. And his future as a lieutenant with the New York City Fire Department. He's based in Brooklyn.
Cornell, once a slugging third baseman at Merrimack Valley High and Plymouth State College, was diagnosed with cancer last spring, nearly seven years after he helped clean up the mess in lower Manhattan.
His thyroid was removed in June, leaving him cancer free. But his vocal cords were damaged during the surgery, leaving him with no voice, not even a whisper.
He can speak now, but Cornell remains out of work. The spirit and hand movements behind the voice and words are still there, but Cornell can't be a firefighter again unless he can communicate clearly. And there are no guarantees.
Congress hopes to pass the $700 Billion bailout bill by Friday, according to an article in Bloomberg.
In case you haven't heard, the bill would not only stick up American taxpayers for an additional $700 billion, but would literally give Paulson and the government fascist powers.
Don't believe me?
Well, as the Bloomberg article notes: "The bill would bar courts from reviewing actions taken under its authority."
Bloomberg includes the following quotes by people who understand the significance of the bill:
It sounds like Paulson is asking to be a financial dictator, for a limited period of time,'' said historian John Steele Gordon . . . .
If I had a nickel for every time we have been told about the "ongoing investigation" of 9/11 as being the reason why we can't have access to information, I would be a rich man. - Jon

Seven years after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, the remains of 13 of the 19 men responsible have been identified and are in the custody of the F.B.I. and the New York City medical examiner’s office.
But no one has formally requested the remains in order to bury them.
“Politically, one can understand that this is a hot potato,” said Muneer Fareed, secretary general of the Islamic Society of North America and a former professor of Islamic studies. “People don’t want to identify with the political equivalent of Jeffrey Dahmer.”
What would happen if someone asked for the hijackers’ remains is not clear.

German Historian Andreas Hauß has handed in a complaint of an offense to the german authorities concerning the attacks of 9/11.
The complains accuses Pete Zalewski, Glenn Michael (ARTCC Boston Center), Stacey Taylor, Richard Kettell (ARTCC Cleveland), Ben Sliney, FAA HQ Herndon Va., Senior Airman Stacia Rountree, Tech Sergeant Shelley Watson, Master Sergeant Maureen Dooley, Jeremy Powell, Lieutenant Colonel Kevin Nasypany, Lt. Col. Dawne Deskins, Otis ANG Commander Quenneville, Lt. Col. Timothy Duffy, Maj. Daniel Nash, Lt. Col. Brad Jackson, Lt. Col. Steve O’Brien, Captain Charles M. Leidig, Brig. General Montague Winfield, NMCC, George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz and others of suspicion of murder. The complaint has been approved and forwarded to the attorney general for further investigation.
While this will obviously will have no effect whatsoever, it might still be interessting to see how the german authorities will justify their non-actions. This is the original letter that confirms the entry for the complaint:
This week Visibility 9-11 welcomes San Francisco Bay area architect Richard Gage, AIA, founder and driving force behind Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth. To date, 477 architectural and engineering professionals and 2432 other supporters including A&E students have signed the petition demanding of Congress a truly independent investigation.
This discussion focuses around the AE911 slogan, "9/11: Re-examining the 3 WTC high-rise "collapses" and includes information relevant to the fall of the Twin Towers and WTC7 as well as the recently released and long awaited NIST report in the implosion of building 7.
