Gorilla Suit

Salam, So I decided to get a gorilla suit and use it as another marketing idea, because my store is located on the main drag. Well, I went on eBay and i found me a good deal on a brand new gorilla suit so I went ahead and purchased one. I could not find anyone to wear it and go stand outside and wave to the 450,000 passing cars everyday..( that's what I was told prior to buying the store). So, I hung the suit right behind me so all my customers get to see a full gorilla suit hanging on the wall, then people start asking me why do I have that on and i tell them I'm looking for someone to wear it for 3 hours 3 days a week. I started offering $8/hour and I could not get anyone to go for it. Well, yesterday this Latino customer asks me about and I tell him I'm looking for someone to wear it, he said I will do it and we agreed on Saturday (which is today)<-- I will be back to him. Yesterday (Friday) a customer .. a lady.. that said she will do it and she came back at 3 p.m and wore it and had a blast , she was dancing hip hop and people were honking each time they pass by the shop. It was fun. back to today, the guy came at the time he promised and he put the suit on, I can see him outside, my problem is he is acting like a gorilla and making a gorilla sounds, (3ayesh edooor). he is becoming the suit it is so freaky, I'm even afraid to approach him and tell him to loosen up. Oh well, I guess I will let him have his day and then after that NO BANNANA FOR YOU!. I like the hip hop lady better. LOL Peace

Violence in Darfur

Dear Friend, This Sunday – as you’ve probably heard – people will be speaking out against the violence in Darfur at a rally in D.C. We know people will come out in force, but we also know the Internet can amplify this important message by leaps and bounds. For the many caring people who can’t make the trip to D.C., but would like to help stop the slaughter in Darfur, we’re organizing a “virtual rally.” People can sign Human Rights First’s “Stand in for a Victim” petition – and leave a personal message for peace – at: Can you help us make this virtual rally happen? Please post information on your site about our petition. The petition also provides a two minute movie on what’s happening in Darfur. Each petition signer will be assigned an individual victim number – we’re looking for at least 200,000 people to stand in for the victims, to represent those who’ve been brutalized in the fighting. The petition calls for a special envoy for peace – someone of the highest international stature who can galvanize global leadership, attract media attention to the carnage, and make sure all parties are included in peace negotiations. Thank you for helping us bring peace to Darfur! Best, Matt Reading ------------------- On behalf of Human Rights First 917-438-4627

Hamas Denies Jordanian claims

رفضت حركة المقاومة الإسلامية (حماس) الاتهامات الأردنية التي تحدثت عن اعتقال مجموعة تخطط بأوامر من قادة الحركة في سوريا لاستهداف مسؤولين ومنشآت في عمان. واعتبر المتحدث باسم حماس سامي أبو زهري في حديث للجزيرة أن هذه الاتهامات "باطلة وسخيفة ولا أساس لها من الصحة"، ولا تنطلي على أي مواطن فلسطيني أو عربي أو إسلامي. وشدد أبو زهري على أن الاتهامات الأردنية تتعارض مع نهج حماس التي قال إنها لا تلاحق المسؤولين الإسرائيليين فكيف لها أن تتعرض لمسؤولين مسلمين عرب. وتابع أن هناك مؤامرة دولية عبرت عنها الإدارة الأميركية بكل وضوح يتبعها تسارع في تصعيد الحصار على حكومة حركة حماس والشعب الفلسطيني. وأضاف أبو زهري أن الحكومة الأردنية سمحت لنفسها أن تتورط في مؤامرة دولية غربية على هذا الشعب وحكومته. ورأى المتحدث أن الحكومة الأردنية عزلت نفسها بهذا الموقف عن المحيط العربي حينما قبلت أن تكون شريكا في هذه المؤامرة على الفلسطينيين على حد قوله. اتهامات أردنيةيأتي ذلك عقب إعلان السلطات الأردنية أن أجهزتها الأمنية اعتقلت مجموعة تتحرك لتنفيذ عمليات ضد مسؤولين ومنشآت في البلاد. وأوضح المتحدث باسم الحكومة الأردنية ناصر جودة أن التحقيقات معهم أظهرت أنهم تلقوا تعليمات للتنفيذ من قياديين في الحركة "وتحديدا أحد مسؤولي العمل العسكري في حركة حماس والموجودين حاليا في سوريا". ولم يكشف جودة في حديث للجزيرة أسماء أو عدد الأشخاص الذين تم اعتقالهم، مشيرا إلى أن السلطات في انتظار استكمال التحقيقات الجارية. وكان الأردن أعلن قبل أسبوع أنه عثر على أسلحة ومتفجرات جرى تهريبها من سوريا من قبل عناصر من حماس. وعلى إثر ذلك ألغى الأردن زيارة مقررة لوزير الخارجية الفلسطيني محمود الزهار. ولكن حماس نفت اتهامات الأردن بأنها خزنت أسلحة على أرضه وأبدت أسفها لإلغاء عمان زيارة الزهار المقررة، وقالت إنها لا تستهدف الأردن أو أي دولة أخرى غير إسرائيل.

The Art of Heckling !

Salam, Baseball is not as big in the Middle East as in the United States. I have been to few games and I always get a kick at the crowd heckling the players or the umpire. So THIS site is taking heckling to another level and posting the best heckling lines.

I'm posting some of my favorite lines:
  • (Hold up cell phone) Hey Ump, is this your cell phone? Because it has three missed calls!
  • Hey Blue! That pitch was like your blind date, you didn't want to see her or call her.
  • I've gotten better calls from my ex-wife!
  • Did you made the call on WMD in Iraq as well?
  • If you're just gonna watch the game, buy a ticket
  • Flip over the plate and read the directions.

Unite all Jordan Planet !

Salam, I check out Jordan Planet everyday and read most of the blogs, but to my own surprise while clicking on the upper tabs I found out that the main dish ( dedicated to JP citizens, but the other bloggers ( New comers & Expats ) are in a separate tabs that are hard to find. I'm not sure if this was done on purpose or it is a design issue, if it is please change it and place all bloggers together (citizens, new comers, and expats) on the same page so they all can share the same fair exposure. If it is done on purpose I call to left the ban and let our brothers and sisters come and hang out with us in one spot. Here is a repost for Marcy in case somebody missed it; Jordan: Open Border to Palestinians Fleeing Iraq HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH Jordan: Open Border to Palestinians Fleeing Iraq International Community Should Resettle Refugees (New York, April 7, 2006) – Jordan should immediately reopen its border to Palestinian refugees fleeing violence in Iraq, Human Rights Watch said today. The international community should assist Jordan by offering to resettle these Iraqi Palestinian refugees in third countries acceptable to them. On April 4, a group of 35 Iraqi Palestinians arrived at the border, fleing from Baghdad, adding to the 94 Iraqi Palestinians already stranded on the Iraqi side of the border. They have fled lethal violence and threats to their lives in Baghdad, where they have lived for decades. The refugees told Human Rights Watch that they fled after seeing scores of their compatriots killed in Baghdad in recent months. Unlike Iraqi nationals, these Palestinians cannot enter Jordan on tourist visas. "Jordan is slamming the door in the face of a small, but desperate group of people, who have seen their relatives murdered in Baghdad,” said Bill Frelick, refugee policy director at Human Rights Watch. “Jordan should not treat Iraqi Palestinians fleeing persecution more harshly than other Iraqis fleeing violence, who have generally been allowed to enter Jordan.” Jordan closed its border to all traffic after the Iraqi Palestinians crossed into the no man’s land between the Iraqi and Jordanian border posts on March 19 and attempted to reach Jordan. The Jordanian authorities insisted they would not reopen the border unless the Palestinian refugees returned to Iraq. The refugees then spent four days unassisted in no man’s land. After four days, armed Iraqi border forces reportedly forced the Palestinians to return to the Iraqi side of the border. The Palestinians are not safe at their makeshift camp just inside the Iraqi border. They fear that Iraqi officials may force them to return at any time to Baghdad, where they have been targeted by armed groups because they are Palestinian. It is also difficult for humanitarian aid agencies to reach them at their present location, though they are receiving assistance from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Iraqi Red Crescent Society. One of the Palestinian refugees at the border told Human Rights Watch that Iraqi border guards were generally treating them well, but said, “I pray for a fast solution to our situation. We feel unsafe and have no access to services such as medical care.” The UNHCR already assists a small group of Palestinian refugees who fled Iraq in 2003 and are living in Jordan’s Ruwaishid camp, close to the border with Iraq. The camp, which is located in a remote inhospitable area, cannot be the permanent home for these refugees. The Palestinians currently fleeing Baghdad said they headed for Jordan because the Ruwaishid camp was their only hope of escape to temporary safety. They said that Iraq’s other neighboring countries would probably not accept them. But now even Ruwaishid is closed to the latest wave of Palestinians seeking protection. Jordan already hosts hundreds of thousands of Palestinian and Iraqi refugees, and says that it is unable to cope with more. “It is unfair to expect Jordan to shoulder the refugee burden alone,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, director of Human Rights Watch’s Middle East and North Africa division. “The international community should assist Jordan and resettle these Palestinians in third countries acceptable to the refugees.” Some Palestinian refugees originally fled to Iraq in 1948, escaping from Gaza and towns in today’s Israel, and most of those currently seeking refuge in Jordan have lived all of their lives in Iraq. Mohammad Abu-Baker, a Palestinian Authority spokesperson, told the United Nations’ IRIN news service that the authority was ready to accept Palestinian refugees from Baghdad. The UNHCR has successfully managed to resettle some non-Palestinian refugees fleeing from Iraq to Jordan since 2003. But regional states and the international community have been reluctant to accept even a small caseload of Palestinian refugees, citing security concerns. “These refugees are being targeted for persecution inside Iraq because they are Palestinian,” said Whitson. “The international community should not deny them protection as well just for being Palestinian.” Background Human Rights Watch documented the dire plight and uncertain legal situation of Iraqi Palestinians in the aftermath of the 2003 Iraq conflict in its 2003 report, “Flight From Iraq.” Following the 2003 Iraq conflict, many Palestinians in Baghdad and other Iraqi cities came under direct attack, in part due to resentment of the fact that Saddam Hussein’s government provided many of them with homes it seized from Iraqi Shia. The situation of Iraq’s Palestinian refugee population has deteriorated sharply over the past year. In late February, 10 Palestinians were reportedly murdered, and last week a Palestinian engineer in Baghdad’s Tubji district was also reportedly killed. Some of the refugees at the border with Jordan said they were relatives of those killed. On March 26, fliers distributed anonymously warned approximately 35 Palestinian families living in Baghdad’s Hurriya district to leave their houses by April 2, a Palestinian refugee told Human Rights Watch. On March 19, a group of 88 Iraqi Palestinians, including 36 children, arrived at the Iraqi side of the border. Since then, one additional family of six has arrived. Iraqi border guards initially allowed them to cross to seek asylum in Jordan, after at first demanding proof of “clearance from the Iraqi Ministry of Interior” to exit Iraq, according to one of the refugees. Jordan immediately closed its borders to Iraqi Palestinians, leaving the refugees stranded in the no man’s land in between both borders for four days without access to humanitarian assistance. Nasser Judeh, the Jordanian government spokesman, told Human Rights Watch that Jordan had demanded that Iraq take back the refugees, accusing the Iraqi authorities of “dumping” them on the Jordanian border. Iraqi military officials subsequently moved the refugees out of the no man’s land under the threat of force, citing them as an obstacle to the free flow of commercial traffic across the border. They are currently living in 20 tents near the Iraqi border compound. Peace

President Bush's Tax Returns Are Made Public

Published: April 14, 2006 WASHINGTON, April 14 — The president and Laura Bush reported adjusted gross income of $735,180 for last year and paid federal income taxes of $187,768, slightly less than in 2004, according to a copy of the couple's 2005 return released today by the White House. The tax return listed as income the president's salary of about $400,000 and proceeds from investment trusts that hold the couple's assets. They paid $207,307 in taxes in 2004 on income of $784,219. Their returns were made public along with those of Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne, who reported that their 2005 taxes were $529,636. The Cheneys' adjusted gross income was $8.82 million, but most of it was not taxable: $6.69 million was proceeds from stock options that the couple had set aside for charity and that were distributed last year, and other charitable contributions came from royalties on books written by Mrs. Cheney. As a result, the Cheneys' taxable income was $1.96 million. In a statement, the White House said that over the course of the year, the couple paid $2.5 million in taxes through withholding and estimated tax payments, in part to deal with the exercise of the stock options. Given that their 2005 taxes are a little over half a million dollars, they are due a refund of about $1.9 million, the statement said. The White House emphasized that the Cheneys had received no personal financial benefit from the charitable donations. "The transactions were tax-neutral to the Cheneys," it said, adding that the large tax refund would return them "to a neutral position of no personal financial benefit or financial detriment resulting" from the gifts. The White House said the stock options had been granted to the Cheneys by the Halliburton Company, Mr. Cheney's former employer, and from the couple's work on the boards of other companies. The money, it said, was designated for three charities: the University of Wyoming, the Cardiothoracic Institute of George Washington University, and Capital Partners for Education, a group that works with low-income high school students in Washington. The Bushes said they contributed $75,560 to churches and other tax-exempt organizations in 2005, about $2,200 less than the year before, and that the recipients last year included the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army's disaster relief funds for the United States and Pakistan. The 2005 donations amounted to 10.3 percent of the couple's income. SOURCE

This is directed to Jordan Planet !

Salam, Not sure how long since I joined Jordan Planet, I enjoyed it and I enjoy reading some of the posts on a daily basis. I also see that there are more and more new comers which makes the Planet more colorful, but quite frankly , I see only ONE COLOR!! So, I'm gonna start a silent protest to demand more colors added to the Planet, I would like to see Jordanian Bloggers from Zarqah, Jabal Husain, Aqabah, Mokhayam Elbag3ah. I'm not very happy with upper class bloggers dominating the Planet, we need to see more diversity. I'm not sure if the GATE KEEPER is keeping them out , or there aren't any bloggers from those places I mentioned. Plus we don't have a SHAIKH BLOGGER. We need at least one shaikh blogger. All other Arab country bloggers have at least one shaikh blogger. Ok that's all for now, I had to get it out of my system, if I get some more rants I will surely let you guys know. Peace :-)

High school teacher's comments investigated

Salam, Few weeks ago a Colorado geography teacher Jay Bennish got in trouble for teaching his students reality geography; Teacher Jay Bennish: Who is probably the single most violent nation on planet Earth?!

student interjects: We are.

Bennish: The United States of America!

Bennish: I'm not saying Bush and Hitler are exactly the same, obviously they're not. OK? But there are some eerie similarities to the tones that they use. Very "ethnocentric."

One of his students secretly recorded one of his lectures, you can listen to it HERE. And you can find the file to download HERE. Here is a script of the tape: Bennish: [tape begins with class already underway. Bennish completing an unintelligble statement about Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez.] Why do we have troops in Colombia fighting in their civil war for over 30 years. Most Americans don't even know this. For over 30 years, America has had soldiers fighting in Colombia in a civil war. Why are we fumigating coca crops in Bolivia and Peru if we're not trying to control other parts of the world. Who buys cocaine? Not Bolivians. Not Peruvians. Americans! Ok. Why are we destroying the farmers' lives when we're the ones that consume that good.

Can you imagine? What is the world's number one single cause of death by a drug? What drug is responsible for the most deaths in the world? Cigarettes! Who is the world's largest producer of cigarettes and tobacco? The United States!

What part of our country grows all our tobacco? Anyone know what states in particular? Mostly what's called North Carolina. Alright. That's where all the cigarette capitals are. That's where a lot of them are located from. Now if we have the right to fly to Bolivia or Peru and drop chemical weapons on top of farmers' fields because we're afraid they might be growing coca and that could be turned into cocaine and sold to us, well then don't the Peruvians and the Iranians and the Chinese have the right to invade America and drop chemical weapons over North Carolina to destroy the tobacco plants that are killing millions and millions of people in their countries every year and causing them billions of dollars in health care costs?

Make sure you get these definitions down.

Capitalism: If you don't understand the economic system of capitalism, you don't understand the world in which we live. Ok. Economic system in which all or most of the means of production, etc., are owned privately and operated in a somewhat competitive environment for the purpose of producing PROFIT! Of course, you can shorten these definitions down. Make sure you get the gist of it. Do you see how when, you know, when you're looking at this definition, where does it say anything about capitalism is an economic system that will provide everyone in the world with the basic needs that they need? Is that a part of this system? Do you see how this economic system is at odds with humanity? At odds with caring and compassion? It's at odds with human rights.

Anytime you have a system that is designed to procure profit, when profit is the bottom motive -- money -- that means money is going to become more important potentially than what? Safety, human lives, etc.

Why did we invade Iraq?! How do we know that the invasion of Iraq for weapons of mass destruction-- even if weapons had been found, how would you have known, how could you prove--that that was not a real reason for us to go there.

There are dozens upon dozens of countries that have weapons of mass destruction. Iraq is one of dozens. There are plenty of countries that are controlled by dictators, where people have no freedom, where they have weapons of mass destruction and they could be potentially threatening to America. We're not invading any of those countries!



I'll give you guys another minute or two to get some of these [definitions] down. I agree with Joey. Try to condense these a little bit. I took these straight out of the dictionary.

Anyone in here watch any of Mr. Bush's [State of the Union] speech last night? I'm gonna talk a little about some of things he had to say.


...One of things that I'll bring up now, since some of you are still writing, is, you know, Condoleezza Rice said this the other day and George Bush reiterated it last night. And the implication was that the solution to the violence in the Middle East is democratization. And the implication through his language was that democracies don't go to war. Democracies aren't violent. Democracies won't want weapons of mass destruction. This is called blind, naive faith in democracy!


Who is probably the single most violent nation on planet Earth?!

Unidentified brainwashed student interjects: We are.

The United States of America! And we're a democracy. Quote-unquote.

Who has the most weapons of mass destruction in the world? The United States.

Who's continuing to develop new weapons of mass destruction as we speak?! The United States.

So, why does Mr. Bush think that other countries that are democracies won't wanna be like us? Why does he think they'll just wanna be at peace with each other?! What makes him think that when the Palestinians get their own state that they won't wanna preemptively invade Israel to eliminate a potential threat to their security just like we supposedly did in Iraq?! Do you see the dangerous precedent that we have set by illegally invading another country and violating their sovereignty in the name of protecting us against a potential future--sorry--attack? [Unintelligible.]


Why doesn't Mexico invade Guatemala? Maybe they're scared of being attacked. Ok. Why doesn't North Korea invade South Korea?! They might be afraid of being attacked. Or maybe Iran and North Korea and Saudi Arabia and what else did he add to the list last night - and Zimbabwe - maybe they're all gonna team up and try and invade us because they're afraid we might invade them. I mean, where does this cycle of violence end? You know?

This whole "do as I say, not as I do" thing. That doesn't work. What was so important about President Bush's speech last night--and it doesn't matter if it was President Clinton still it would just as important) is that it's not just a speech to America. But who? The whole world! It's very obvious that if you listen to his language, if you listen to his body language, and if you paid attention to what he was saying, he wasn't always just talking to us. He was talking to the whole planet. Addressing the whole planet!

He started off his speech talking about how America should be the country that dominates the world. That we have been blessed essentially by God to have the most civilized, most advanced, best system and that it is our duty as Americans to use the military to go out into the world and make the whole world like us.


Sounds a lot like the things that Adolf Hitler use to say.

We're the only ones who are right. Everyone else is backwards. And it's our job to conquer the world and make sure they live just like we want them to.

Now, I'm not saying that Bush and Hitler are exactly the same. Obviously, they are not. Ok. But there are some eerie similarities to the tones that they use. Very, very "ethnocentric." We're right. You're all wrong.

I just keep waiting. You know, at some point I think America and Mexico might go to war again. You know. Anytime Mexico plays the USA in a soccer match. What can be heard chanting all game long?


Do all Mexicans dislike the United States? No. Do all Americans dislike Mexico? No. But there's a lot of resentment--not just in Mexico, but across the whole world--towards America right now.

We told--Condoleezza Rice said--that now that Hamas got elected to lead the Palestianians that they have to renounce their desire to eliminate Israel. And then Condoleezza Rice also went on to say that you can't be for peace and support armed struggle at the same time. You can't do that. Either you're for peace or war. But you can't be for both.

What is the problem with her saying this? That's the same thing we say. That is exactly the same thing this current administration says. We're gonna make the world safe by invading and killing and making war. So, if we can be for peace and for war, well, why can't the Palestinians be for peace and for war?!


*Student Sean Allen, who is taping Bennish's rant, speaks up:*

Allen: Isn't there a difference of, of, having Hamas being like, we wanna attack Israelis because they're Israelis, and having us say we want to attack people who are known terrorists? Isn't there a difference between saying we're going to attack innocents and we're going to attack people who are not innocent?


Bennish: I think that's a good point. But you have to remember who's doing the defining of a terrorist. And what is a terrorist?

Allen: Well, when people attack us on our own soil and are actually attempting to take American lives and want to take American lives, whereas, Israelies in this situation, aren't saying we want to blow up Palestine...

Bennish: How did Israel and the modern Israeli state even come into existence in the first place?

Allen: We gave it to them.

Bennish: Sort of. Why? After the Israel-Zionist movement conducted what? Terrorist acts. They assassinated the British prime minster in Palestine. They blew up buildings. They stole military equipment. Assassinated hundreds of people. Car bombings, you name it. That's how the modern state of Israel was made. Was through violence and terrorism. Eventually we did allow them to have the land. Why? Not because we really care, but because we wanted a strategic ally. We saw a way to us to get a hook into the Middle East.

If we create a modern nation of Israel, then, and we make them dependent on us for military aid and financial aid, then we can control a part of the Middle East. We will have a country in the Middle East that will be indebted to us.

Allen: But is it ok to say it's just to attack Israel? If it's ok to attack known terrorists, it's ok to attack Israel?

Bennish: If you were Palestinians, who are the real terrorists? The Israelis, who fire missiles that they purchased from the United States government into Palestinian neighborhoods and refugees and maybe kill a terrorist, but also kill innocent women and children. And when you shoot a missile into Pakistan to quote-unquote kill a known terrorist, and we just killed 75 people that have nothing to do with al Qaeda, as far as they're concerned, we're the terrorists. We've attacked them on their soil with the intention of killing their innocent people.


Allen: But we did not have the intention of killing innocent people. We had the intention of killing an al Qaeda terrorist.

Bennish: Do you know that?

Allen: So, you're saying the United States has intentions to kill innocent people?

Bennish: I don't know the answer to that question.

Allen: But what gain do we get from killing innocent people in the Middle East? What gain does that pose to us?

Bennish: Let me ask you this. During the 1980s, Iran and Iraq were involved in an 8-year-long war. The United States sold missiles, tanks, guns, planes, to which side?

Unidentified student: Iraq?

Bennish: Both. The answer is both. Why would we send armaments to two sides that are fighting each other. That seems to be self-defeating. Don't we want one side to win? Not always! Sometimes you just want there to be conflict!

The British -- this is one of the grand strategies of the British imperial system--was to play local animosities off each other. To prevent them is to divide and conquer.

Do we really want the Middle East to unite as one cohesive political and cultural body?

No! Because then they could what? Threaten our supremacy.

We want to keep the world divided. Do we really want to kill innocent people? I don't know. I don't know the answer to that.

I know there are some Americans who do. People who work in the CIA. People who have to think like that. Those kind of dirty minds, dirty tricks. That's how the intelligence world works. Sometimes you do want to kill people just for the sake of killing them. Right?

Listen, between the years 1960 and 1962, the United States through the CIA conducted over 7,000 terrorist sabotage attacks against the small island nation of Cuba. Over 7,000 terrorist attacks were waged against just one little country called Cuba in a two year period, intentionally, let me rephrase that, intentionally blowing up medical supplies, intentionally burning down crops that feed their country, thereby creating starvation, right? Intentionally trying to make that system collapse. And we're willing to expend however many thousands of people died because we just want to get rid of Castro. And the sad reality is that there are some policy planners who are willing to let people die in order to achieve their objectives.


Now, do I think President Bush says 'I'd like to go kill some innocent Palestianians?' I don't think he thinks like that. But I also know that he's not the only one making decisions. I also know that after September 11, President Bush got on TV and he said, 'You will feel our wrath. You will feel the full force of the United States military. There will be paybacks.' He said it again last night. He said, 'We've killed a lot of top-ranking al Qaeda members. And for those who aren't killed yet, you're day will come!' Right? That kind of language to me is very obvious.


And when you go trying to kill one particular type of person, you know that you're gonna kill other people, too. And let me ask you this...

Allen: Later in that, he stated that he's [Osama bin Laden] trying to kill innocents...

Bennish: I understand that, but hold on, you have to understand something, that when al Qaeda attacked America on September 11, in their view, they're not attacking innocent people. Ok. The CIA has an office at the World Trade Center. The Pentagon is a military target. The White House was a military target. Congress is a military target. The World Trade Center is the economic center of our entire economy.


The FBI, who tracks down terrorists and so on and so forth around the world, has offices in the World Trade Center. Some of the companies that work in the World Trade Center are these huge multinational corporations that are directly involved in the military-industrial complex in supporting corrupt dictatorships in the Middle East.

And so in the minds of al Qaeda, they're not attacking innocent people. They're attacking legitimate targets. People who have blood on their hands as far as they're concerned!

We portray them as innocent because they're our friends and neighbors, family, loved ones. One of my best friends from high school, elementary school, and birth, lives in lower Manhattan. You know, he was right there, he was four blocks away from it. So, anytime it comes close to home, you begin to see things differently.


In no way am I implying, I don't know, you got to figure this stuff out for yourself, but I want you to think about these things--you know, think about this right here. [Apparently pointing to American flag.] Here's the real homeland security. Fighting terrorism since 1492! Ok. I mean, to many Native Americans, that flag is no different than the Nazi flag or the Confederate flag. It represents the people that came and stole their land, lied, brought disease, rape, pillage, destruction, etc. So it all depends upon varying people's perspectives varying. And of course, we're going to see ourselves as being in the right , at least the majority of us, because that's us.

Allen: But we were the ones that were attacked first. On September 11, 2001, we were the ones that were attacked. We were not attacking anybody until that point. Then we said ok, we're going into Afghanistan. Then we said ok, the Iraqi government has ties with al Qaeda. We're going to go into Iraq. We were the ones that were attacked.

Bennish: In actuality, if you remember back to my first day, the Sept. 11 attacks were, according to bin Laden, a direct response to our 1) support of the nation of Israel, which they consider to be a terrorist regime that does not have the right to control the land that the Palestinians lived on for over 1,500 years, and they also did it because of what George Clinton did--Bill Clinton, not George Clinton, they had a little documentary on him on PBS last night I was watching--Bill Clinton, when he launched the missile attacks into Afghanistan and Sudan and killed thousands of innocent Africans and Afghanistan people - Afghanis - that had nothing to do with al Qaeda or anything. In fact, in sudan, he blew up the country's largest pharmaceutical plant, which was producing medicines, alright, um, you know, that's as far as, in their eyes, that was retaliation for those attacks.

And so this whole idea of who attacked who first, how far back in time do you wanna go!? This is the whole thing with the Arab-Israeli conflict. Well, who was there first? Well, if you believe the Bible, you say, well, God gave the land of Canaan to the Israelites. But who was in that land when they got there? The Canaanites, who some archeologists would argue are the ancient descendants of the Palestinians. You know.

Other archeologists say the Hebrews didn't really come from Egypt. They were actually a group of Canaanites who decided they didn't like the other Canaanites and developed this story afterward to justify how they killed all their neighbors and took over the land.


Alright, and so this becomes very, very muddled. And I'm not in any way implying that you should agree with me. I don't even know if I'm necessarily taking a position. But what I'm trying to get you to do is to think, right, about these issues more in-depth, you know, and not just take things from the surface. And I'm glad you asked all your questions, because they're very good, legitimate questions. And hopefully that allows other people to begin to think about some of those things, too.



Wikocracy !

Salam, Somebody sent me this email : A friend of mine suggested that you might be interested in a site I recently launched called Wikocracy ( It's a wiki site where you can edit the United States Constitution, the USA PATRIOT Act, Roe v. Wade and any other law you'd like to see changed. It's just been up for a week, and the response so far has been encouraging. I'd be very interested in any feedback or suggestions you might have. Here is an intro to the site: This is a test... To see what happens when everyone can write and revise the law. It may sound like a free-for-all. But that's exactly the point-- to make the process of law-making free for all. On this platform, you can freely edit the USA PATRIOT Act, The Digital Millennium Copyright Act, your State's law on gay marriage, your city's zoning ordinances. If you'd like to change a law that is not yet on this platform, you can easily create a page and import the text you want to change. You can also write your own laws, post blogs, collaborate and spar with other users. Although there are some suggested guidelines and tips that will facilitate this experiment, there are no rules. Nothing on this platform is legally binding. One person's changes can be revised or reversed by the next. Over time, this platform could reflect a collaborative statement of what we think the law should be. Or it could reflect a moment-by-moment statement of the most recent editor's views. This will be as bloody or as civil as you make it... This is only a test. Peace

Humanizing the Unknown !

Humanizing the Unknown ! Salam, For so long the unknown has been the center of everybody's fear. If you don't know that thing,person, or culture your fear of the unknown will bread hate. And we choose to stay ignorant about those issues because it is a safe and easy character to take, at least everyone around me is doing it. Only few of us who are brave enough to cross that line and learn about the other side and try to find the human side of it. Hollywood is doing just that I think, I watched "King Kong" last night and I gotta tell ya, unlike the original King Kong we all fell in love with the big huge Abe. The whole movie was about his emotions, face expressions, his sacrifices and playful mood, we also saw his anger and his bravery, and the blonde actually fell in love with him. "V for Vendetta" falls into the same category, huminizing a man who go around blowing up buildings. "Paradise Now" also follows 2 best friends who are about to go blow themselves up in Israel. I guess we are living in a new time where we are not afraid of the big dark monster anymore, we are learning new things about him, we are brave enough to go beyond the ugly mask or the hairy face to see the roots of his anger and trying to understand what led him to act this way. In a way we are crossing the red line of our norms to take a peak at what other people go through out there in the far far land. I'm OK with that, actually I'm happy to see people are going out of their norms and exploring other things that are out there. Do you think the American people are ready for a new PARTY? Do you think that the American people are ready to vote for a new political party other than Democrats and Republicans? Ok I'm getting a head of myself here, maybe in 2012. By then more and more people would be brave enough to get out of the closet. Peace
