General Issues / Another Shoe in the Face For Saddam!!!

Saddam scrubbed from list of descendants of the Prophet Mohammed  
Wed Dec 17,12:25 PM ET  Add Mideast - AFP to My Yahoo!
 


BAGHDAD (AFP) - The name of Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) has been removed from the list of descendants of Islam's Prophet Mohammed, the head of the union of Ashrafs, who guard the genealogical tree, told AFP.

Al-Sherif Najeh Mohammed Hassan al-Faham al-Aaraji admitted that the ousted dictator had been able to cheat despite the great value and honour attached to the line which is guarded in Baghdad.


"Saddam had forced the origin experts to falsify his genealogical tree so that it went back to the Prophet," he said.


"We will inform all the experts, and particularly those who yielded to Saddam and agreed to falsify his genealogical tree. But the real trusted experts are very few in number and all refused."


Aaraji showed AFP a photo of Saddam's tree including a large book of origins which go back to the imams Hassan and Hussein, sons of the imam Ali bin Abi Taleb by his wife Fatima, a daughter of the Prophet.


The cancellation of Saddam's noble lineage was decided three days after his capture by US forces on Saturday night near Tikrit, in northern Iraq (news - web sites).


The Ashrafs' union was set up after the fall of the old regime on April 9 by the men who under Saddam were part of councils of the sayeds, or lords, descending from Hassan and Hussein.


The union has the backing of religious dignitaries from all Muslim traditions, including the hawza Shiite seminary in Najaf as well as the interim interior ministry, Aaraji said.


On Tuesday the union held its first congress "to build the new Iraq", attended by Sunni and Shiite ashrafs, representatives of the interim Governing Council and other Iraqi communities.


"The first committee of ashrafs was set up in Kufa (Iraq) in 830 in the era of the Abbasids," said Ahmad Khoder al-Abbasi, head of the Arab committee of origins.


It moved to Baghdad, which became a centre for similar committees from the Arab and Muslim world. In the 1800s, the Ottomans suspended its activities and in 1917 the British scrapped the union totally, Abbasi said.

Hillary Praises Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan

U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, praising the former Soviet Union yesterday for its 1979 invasion of Afghanistan, said that the attack helped bring women's rights to the fundamentalist Muslim country.

"The Soviets tried to provide more opportunities for women," Clinton told the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, in a speech billed by her office as "her first major foreign policy address as a U.S. senator."

In quotes picked up by the New York Sun, Mrs. Clinton noted that Afghanistan was "the place where September 11 was conceived and implemented." She then criticized the Bush administration for not focusing more on the former al-Qaeda stronghold.

Contrasting the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan with that of the Evil Empire, Clinton complained, "Too soon the eyes of the administration moved from Kabul to Baghdad."

The former first lady detailed her Thanksgiving Day meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, saying she urged him to implement a high-profile effort to improve maternal health.(newspeak for abortion clinics, forced sterilization, and birth control?)

Clinton said that such a program would be critical because the people of Afghanistan need to see that America's presence has produced "tangible results" like schools and health clinics - not just electoral and political reforms.

She then suggested that a Soviet-style occupation of Afghanistan, which included the wholesale slaughter of the Afghan people in a bid to install a puppet government, had its merits, since it helped women.

"One of the reasons why we were able to marshal the Mujaheddin and the warlords against the Soviets is because the Soviets tried to provide more opportunities for women," she told the CFR.

Courts are not failing fathers, says judge

Feuds over divorce are alienating children, not 'pro-mother' courts

Clare Dyer, legal correspondent
Saturday December 13, 2003
The Guardian

A high court family judge took the rare step of warning parents separated from their child or children by divorce that they risk alienating the child and losing contact if they criticise the other parent and adopt an over-rigid insistence on their rights.

Mr Justice Wall admitted that dealing with contact disputes in England and Wales had "serious faults". It was stressful for parents and children, expensive, slow and adversarial. It tended to entrench parental attitudes rather than encourage change, and was ill-adapted to dealing with the dilemmas involved.

But parents had to take responsibility for their behaviour; blaming the system was no answer, said the judge, issuing a judgment to stop a father from having direct contact with his 12-year-old son.

The decision to make the judgment public follows a number of highly publicised demonstrations by fathers who claim they have been mistreated by the family courts.

Mr Justice Wall, whose promotion to the appeal court was announced this week, said the points in his judgment, which followed a hearing in private in the high court's family division, needed to be aired.

Mr W blames the courts for refusing to accept his view that his former wife had turned his son against him.

The judge said disputes between separated parents over contact with children were among the "most difficult and sensitive cases which judges and magistrates have to hear".

The proceedings aroused "profound emotions" and the children became the battleground on which parents fought the perceived wrongs each did to the other during their failed marriage. In this case, said the judge, the father had wrongly accused the mother of child abuse, perverting the course of justice, defamation, and perjury.

The child, identified as O, had told a social worker during the course of the court battles: "It is like a war. You know they are fighting, and they are fighting over me."

In a letter to another judge from his school, the boy was quoted as saying: "Dad says mum fills my head with rubbish, telling me all the wrong things. I feel I have a horrible life because of these two arguing. I just want them to be friends. I love them both."

The courts had found, said the judge, that stresses of divorce and the parents' "acrimonious behaviour" were intolerable for the boy.

Mr Justice Wall said: "The father asserts that this is a case in which the mother has deliberately alienated O from him. It is not.

"The principal reason that O is hostile to contact with his father is because of his father's behaviour, and not because his mother has influenced O against his father."

The courts recognised the importance of both parents and were not "anti-father and pro-mother", said the judge.

His ruling came after the father applied to withdraw his application for contact. This will mean he will have no face-to-face meetings with his son for the foreseeable future - but can write and send presents and cards on birthdays and at Easter and Christmas.

The judge said the father had vowed to join the "peaceful public protest as a rapidly increasing number of militant fathers have done and will continue to do in the future".

Day 183 of my captivity...
My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry cereal.

The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the mild satisfaction I get from ruining the occasional piece of furniture.

Tomorrow I may eat another house plant. Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their feet while they were walking almost succeeded -- must try this at the top of the stairs.

In an attempt to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors, I once again induced myself to vomit on their favorite chair -- must try this on their bed.

Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body, in an attempt to make them aware of what I am capable of, and to try to strike fear into their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a good little cat I was. Hmmm, not working according to plan.

There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was placed in solitary throughout the event. However, I could hear the noise and smell the food. More importantly I overheard that my confinement was due to MY power of "allergies." Must learn what this is and how to use it to my advantage.

I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and maybe snitches.

The dog is routinely released and seems more than happy to return. He is obviously a half -wit. The bird on the other hand has got to be an informant, and speaks with them regularly. I am certain he reports my every move. Due to his current placement in the metal room, his safety is assured.

But I can wait, it is only a matter of time...

France Divided, Young Muslims Angry, at Proposals to Banish Islamic Head Scarves From Schools
By John Leicester Associated Press Writer
Published: Dec 12, 2003


 
 
 
 
 
PARIS (AP) - After Friday prayers at a Paris mosque, a simple question about the possibility of France outlawing Islamic head scarves in schools provoked a heated protest.
"I urge all our brothers not to take their kids to school!" cried Mohammed, a Muslim of North African origin. The crowd, drawn by his appeals, murmured its approval.

The danger of France's new effort to protect its secular traditions, these angry young men said, is that it will drive Muslims even further away from the rest of the country.

But Bernard Stasi, the head of a presidential panel that recommended the law against head scarves and other religious symbols in schools, including Jewish skullcaps and large Christian crosses, indicated Friday that France has no choice.

The law, Stasi said, will not solve all the country's problems with its large, often poorly integrated immigrant community. But he said France cannot allow Muslims to undermine its core values, which include a strict separation of religion and state, equality between the sexes and freedom for all.

"There are indisputably Muslims or ... groups seeking to test the resistance of the Republic, that bear a grudge against the values of the Republic, that want France to no longer be France," Stasi said on France-Inter radio. "We cannot tolerate that."

His commission's report, released Thursday, painted a grim picture of a nation struggling to accommodate different races, cultures and religions - while clinging to the belief that secularism best ensures equality for all.

French public schools should be neutral grounds that protect students from the "violence and furies of society" outside, the report said.

Yet, in school playgrounds, Jewish children are commonly insulted as "dirty Jew" and it "can be dangerous" for them to wear skullcaps on the street or on public transportation, said the 67-page report, the result of six months of study.

One student told the commission that at their high school any Jew who wore a skullcap would be "lynched." Efforts to teach Jewish history are treated with such derision in some schools that instruction about the Holocaust "becomes impossible," the report said.

In some urban ghettos, meanwhile, young Muslim women are forced to cover up and lower their eyes before men; otherwise "they are stiSLURPized as 'whores,'" the report said. It added that preteen girls are sometimes forced to wear head scarves, and that some fathers or husbands have refused to let male doctors treat their wives or daughters in hospitals.

"Basic rights of women are today scorned on a daily basis in our country. Such a situation is unacceptable," the report said.

President Jacques Chirac, who has previously made clear his opposition to head scarves in schools, is expected to announce Wednesday his stance on a law based on the panel's recommendations.

Any law against head scarves would alienate young Muslims like those who spoke with such passion outside the ramshackle mosque in a poor, multiracial section of Paris' 18th district.

Women "are emeralds, jewels - the more they are shielded, the more beautiful they become. They lose their luster if they are outdoors," said Riadh Chabaoui, in his 20s. "In religious life, women must wear veils."

Mohammed, who wouldn't give his full name, said legislating against head scarves would backfire. He said he tells his wife that she's beautiful in her scarf because it is "the flag of all Muslims."

"If you make me choose between breaking the law and breaking the Quran, I'll break the law," he said, referring to the Muslim holy book. "Today, they forbid us from wearing veils. Tomorrow, they'll forbid us from being Muslims."

Non-Muslims also warned that a law could carry dangers.

"Secularism has worked until now," said Monsignor Jean-Michel di Falco, auxiliary bishop of Gap, in southeastern France. "In my opinion, a law risks making this problem even harder to manage."

About 7 percent of France's 60 million people are Muslims; Jews make up 1 percent of the population.

Many Muslims immigrated from France's former North African colonies after World War II, working in factories and living in suburbs now corroded by unemployment and crime.

Stasi acknowledged some "immigrants feel they are not considered to be completely French, feel that they are victims of discrimination."

"In such conditions, it is not surprising that they seek refuge in what is called their community and that they lend a too-often sympathetic ear to those who cast doubt on the values of our Republic," he said.

Not all Muslims oppose banning head scarves. Some say a law would protect young girls from male relatives who force them to cover up.

"The veil is for home," said an elderly African begging outside the mosque, who spoke up only after the crowd of younger men had dispersed.

"When you are at school, or in the office, take it off," he said, adding: "If you don't like that, go back to your own country."

General Issues / Advice, comments regarding my daughter
« on: Dec 09, 2003, 04:11:16 PM »
My 21 yr old daughter has been with her bf for 4 yrs.  She's left him several times, and she keeps going back.  I've tried to stay out of it except to suggest counseling.  They have a beautiful little girl who will be 2 in March.

We've been battling the flu, both at my house and at hers, which is 2 hours away from me.  Yesterday morning, she called crying, saying that she couldn't breathe.  This kid doesn't whine.  I thought about packing everyone up in the car and going up there, but I'm still feeling the flu after a couple of weeks.  My glasses are also pretty old, so I don't feel comfortable driving in the dark.  Too dangerous.  Ok, so she calls back and says it's getting worse, but her bf told her to just tough it out.  I told her to call an ambulance.  If she doesn't qualify for healthy families or MediCal, she can make 10 buck payments on the bill every month.

She has severe flu and acute bronchitis.  I called my friend who lives next to them, and he told me that he saw them put her in the ambulance with a oxygen mask.  I called over to the house and no one answered.  I called the hospital and checked on her condition, thinking that her bf followed the ambulance to the hospital.  Heck I took a guess as to where they took her and got the number from 411.  Lucky guess, it was the right hospital.

This is where I have a really big problem....not only did her bf NOT go to the hospital to check on her, he expected her to walk home when she was released!  5 or 10 miles, people! And it's freezing! I got a couple of phone calls from her in the hospital, and there wasn't any transportation available that time of evening.  She took a taxi home, and her bf bitched her out because it cost 10 dollars.  She called me this morning at 12:45 crying her eyes out and wheezing :-(

I called this morning, and she is still pretty upset.  He didn't apologize to her, or even ask her how she was feeling.  He does seem to love their little girl.  Too bad he doesn't love her mommy.

Any suggestions?  Taxidermy is not an option.

Dear Senator:

You swine. You vulgar little maggot. You worthless bag of filth. As we say in Iowa, I'll bet you couldn't pour p!ss out of a boot with instructions on the heel. You are a canker. A sore that won't go away. I would rather kiss a lawyer than be seen with you. You're a putrescent mass, a walking vomit. You are a spineless little worm deserving nothing but the profoundest contempt. You are a jerk, a cad, a weasel. Your life is a monument to stupidity. You are a stench, a revulsion, a big suck on a sour lemon. You are a bleating foal, a curdled staggering mutant dwarf smeared richly with the effluvia and offal accompanying your alleged birth into this world. An insensate, blinking calf, meaningful to nobody, abandoned by the puke-drooling, giggling beasts who sired you and then killed themselves in recognition of what they had done. I will never get over the embarrassment of belonging to the same species as you. You are a monster, an ogre, a malformity. I barf at the very thought of you. You have all the appeal of a paper cut. Lepers avoid you. You are vile, worthless, less than nothing. You are a weed, a fungus, the dregs of this earth. And did I mention you smell? Try to edit your responses of unnecessary material before attempting to impress us with your insight. The evidence that you are a nincompoop will still be available to readers, but they will be able to access it more rapidly. You snail-skulled little rabbit. Would that a hawk pick you up, drive its beak into your brain, and upon finding it rancid set you loose to fly briefly before spattering the ocean rocks with the frothy pink shame of your ignoble blood. May you choke on the queasy, convulsing nausea of your own trite, foolish beliefs. You are weary, stale, flat and unprofitable. You are grimy, squalid, nasty and profane. You are foul and disgusting. You're a fool, an ignoramus. Monkeys look down on you. Even sheep won't have sex with you. You are unreservedly pathetic, starved for attention, and lost in a land that reality forgot. And what meaning do you expect your delusionally self-important statements of unknowing, inexperienced opinion to have with us? What fantasy do you hold that you would believe that your tiny-fisted tantrums would have more weight than that of a leprous desert rat, spinning rabidly in a circle, waiting for the bite of the snake? You are a waste of flesh. You have no rhythm. You are ridiculous and obnoxious. You are the moral equivalent of a leech. You are a living emptiness, a meaningless void. You are sour and senile. You are a disease, you puerile, one-handed, slack-jawed, drooling, meatslapper. On a good day you're a half-wit. You remind me of drool. You are deficient in all that lends character. You have the personality of wallpaper. You are dank and filthy. You are asinine and benighted. You are the source of all unpleasantness. You spread misery and sorrow wherever you go. You smarmy lagerlout git. You bloody woofter sod. Bugger off, pillock. You grotty wanking oik artless base-court apple-john. You clouted boggish foot-licking twit. You dankish clack-dish plonker. You gormless crook-pated tosser. You churlish boil-brained clotpole ponce. You cockered bum-bailey poofter. You craven dewberry pisshead cockup pratting naff. You gob-kissing gleeking flap-mouthed coxcomb. You dread-bolted fobbing beef-witted clapper-clawed flirt-gill. You are a fiend and a coward, and you have bad breath. You are degenerate, noxious and depraved. I feel debased just for knowing you exist. I despise everything about you, and I wish you would go away. I cannot believe how incredibly stupid you are. I mean rock-hard stupid. Dehydrated-rock-hard stupid. Stupid, so stupid it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid. You are trans-stupid stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Stupid gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity stupid. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid. You emit more stupid in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid. Your writing has to be a troll. Nothing in our universe can really be this stupid. Perhaps this is some primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of physics that we know. I'm sorry. I can't go on. This is an epiphany of stupid for me. After this, you may not hear from me again for a while. I don't have enough strength left to deride your ignorant questions and half baked comments about unimportant trivia, or any of the rest of this drivel. Duh. The only thing worse than your logic is your manners. I have snipped away most of what you wrote, because, well... it didn't really say anything. Your attempt at constructing a creative post was pitiful. I mean, really, stringing together a bunch of insults among a load of babbling was hardly effective... Maybe later in life, after you have learned to read, write, spell, and count, you will have more success. True, these are rudimentary skills that many of us "normal" people take for granted that everyone has an easy time of mastering. But we sometimes forget that there are "challenged" persons in this world who find these things more difficult. If I had known, that this was your case then I would have never read your post. It just wouldn't have been "right". Sort of like parking in a handicap space. I wish you the best of luck in the emotional, and social struggles that seem to be placing such a demand on you. You are a disgusting piece of filth, incapable of honor. You are so vile that not even a lawyer would consent to sexual congress with you under any circumstances. Nay, even your right hand shuns such congress with you.

Yes, I could have reformatted this excellent rant, but it would have spoiled the flavor.  


Have a nice evening, and sleep well knowing that people like Hillary are looking out for our best interests.


Whoops, this is my opinion, not to mention the entire Armed Forces...not necessarily that of SPARC's.....
