It isn't enough to get folks to agree on the agenda of the talks, but, there has to be bigots in the USA to complicate it all.

I am quite certain the 'agenda' will be reviewed by more than the leaders of Israel and Palestine.  Jordan, Egypt and the USA have sincere interests in the outcome to this process.  I am sure the rough edges will be worked out.


Dispute in peace talks: Borders or security first?

Palestinian sources tell Ynet Israel trying to 'play for time until US elections,' admit will be forced to accept certain resumption of settlement construction

The direct negotiations have just been launched, and the parties are already in disagreement over the order of the talks: Palestinian sources told Ynet on Tuesday that Israel was insisting on starting the negotiations with the security issue, while the Palestinian Authority wanted to begin with the border issue.

The negotiating teams are expected to meet in the coming days, and possibly as early as Tuesday, and to try to reach an agreement on the basic guidelines of the talks….

Perhaps Mr. Beck and Ms. Palin will learn their hate mongering actually costs soldiers their lives.

When are charges going to be levied against responsible parties in the USA?  When  is the FCC going to put a lid on the level of hatred allowed to be conducted on the airwaves of the country, when all our commanders are dead?

2 U.S. troops shot dead in Iraq  (click title to entry - thank you)

Nine others are injured as they come under fire from a man wearing an Iraqi army uniform. The troops were part of a security detail for a U.S. commander meeting with Iraqi officers in Salahuddin province.

...The soldiers were members of a security detail protecting a U.S. company commander who was meeting with Iraqi security forces, according to a statement issued by the U.S. military. It wasn't clear whether the assailant actually was an Iraqi soldier; Iraqi police said the shooting occurred after an altercation between the American soldiers and an Iraqi soldier.

The two deaths are the first U.S. casualties in Iraq since Obama's Aug. 31 address to the nation on Iraq. But it was the second time that U.S. troops had been caught up in violence in the last week....

Rev. O'Neal Dozier is an interesting example of 'opposition' to 'elements' within the Islamic faith that a community might find 'undesirable.'   Whether they are or not is another question, but, opposing the 'elements of violence' in a community is quite different than slamming an entire faith for doing nothing more than carrying out its worship.  

 And Bloomberg is wrong.  A USA General is asking an entire community to stop their demonstration of hatred.  That is far different than building a mosque that will serve the community in New York.  The two events do not equate.  One is an issue of national security and the other is a matter of community preference.

Anti-Islam Pastor Condemns Qur'an Burning by Gainesville Church

There are few pastors in America more extreme in their opposition to Islam than the Rev. O'Neal Dozier of the Worldwide Christian Center in Pompano Beach. In 2007, Dozier sued to prevent the construction of a mosque in the city, claiming that the Council on American-Islamic Relations had ties to terrorist groups.

Asked whether he supports the right of the Dove World Outreach Center to burn copies of the Qur'an, Dozier said, "Absolutely not. I don't think the we need to provoke Islam in that sense. I think that there are other ways to express our protest against Islam."...


The USA is serving no purposeful role in Iraq for training anyone if they are chronically under attack due to Americans behaving badly.  Bring the troops home now.

..."I strongly condemn that. I think it's a disrespectful action and in general I really urge people to respect other people's faith and behave respectfully. I think such actions are in strong contradiction with all the values we stand for and fight for," said NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen. "Of course, there is a risk that it may also have a negative impact on the security for our troops."
Rasmussen's comments came just one day after Afghanistan commander Gen. David Petraeus issued a statement criticizing the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida, which plans to burn copies of Islam's holy book for 10 reasons they explain on their website....


Neither Rasmussen or Petraeus are Muslim.  The 'mood' in the USA is so completely hideous.  Who do Americans think they are anymore?  

Attacks by international criminals have happened to many other countries and while there have been issues in regard to other buildings and the like there hasn't been this level of hatred rendered in any other country.

There was that hole mess awhile ago about soldiers desecrating the Quran, too.  So, this is just adding fuel to the fire. 

Even Indonesia is calling up protestors.  After all the good will, it only takes a small match to light the fire of unrest.   The USA will end up with embassies on fire and all sorts of stuff.

Isn't it wonderful to have a country that stands solidly behind the peace process in the Middle East, huh?

...About 3,000 members of a hard-line Islamic group marched Saturday to the U.S. Embassy in downtown Jakarta, waving banners and posters condemning the plan. The group organized similar rallies in five other cities across Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim nation....



It is called Freedom of Speech.

Just because the ad appears on the internet doesn't mean it is real.  If the Attorney Generals, whom are outside the ability to legislate, what to run "Craigslist," whom is a highly successful Wall Street firm into the ground for political purposes, doesn't mean they are the ones to elect into office.

Why aren't the Attorney Generals doing their job and picking up the prostitutes? 

Tell me that, rather than making a spectacle of themselves?

These ads might be real, but, they could be a fabrication or stunt.  But, the ultimate resolve is that this is an easy arrest and if "Craigslist" were viewed by Attorney Generals and police as a real place to look for arrests I guarantee you it would stop.

The complaining is a political stunt and a sorry one at that.  See, Attorney Generals don't have legislative records, they simply have arrest and prosecution histories when they run for office, so when they say something people want to hear it is a 'gimme' for the Republicans.  That is all this is really.  People like what they hear and they 'want to give 'em a chance.'  Temptation in every sense of the word.  They should be prosecuting these women and if minors they should be prosecuting their pimps.
