Die unbekannten Täter drangen demnach am Wochenende in den 500 Quadratmeter großen Tresorraum der Bank ein.

Dazu hatten sie unweit vom Bankgebäude ein Gartengeschäft eröffnet + den 200 Meter langen Tunnel gegraben.

Das Gartengeschäft verschaffte den Tätern den Angaben zufolge die Möglichkeit, große Mengen Erdreich fortzuschaffen,

ohne dass dies Misstrauen erweckte.

08.Aug.2005 Official FBI definition of terrorism:

Terrorism is the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.
Even by its own definition the hypocrite U.S. government is guilty of terrorism on a massive, international scale. And for over 100 years!
The U.S. government has broken international law and the Geneva Convention many times with its brutal use of force and horrific violence against persons and property, to intimidate and coerce governments, civilian populations, and many segments thereof, in furtherance of political, social and especially economic objectives.

White Slavery
The existence of White slavery in America is one of the most little-known facts of American history. Initially, colonial America was built with the blood, sweat and tears of White slaves to a far greater extent than Black slaves. In fact, America's first slaves were White people.
It is estimated that fully one-half to two-thirds of all White immigrantsto colonial America in the 17.and 18.centuries were actually slaves who had been brought against their will.

They were known by the euphemism of indentured servants but in reality a great many of these people were true slaves.

Their servitude was for life + their children were forced to be slaves as well.
Virtually all of the White slaves were brought from Scotland, Ireland and the impoverished working classes of England.

They were both Protestant and Catholic, victims of religious wars and the inhuman greed of the English aristocracy.

It was routine for the utterly corrupt and class-prejudiced English courts to justify the forced exile of their victims to the colonies by falsely labeling them as criminals.

This charade eased the guilty consciences of the true criminals while they made money off kidnapping and the sale of stolen human labor.
If the White slaves survived the hellish voyage across the Atlantic and arrived in the new hell, otherwise known as the New World, they were auctioned on the block just like Black slaves.

White slave children were often sold and separated from their parents and White slave women were sold and separated from their husbands.
A great many White slaves were forced to work under cruel and demeaning conditions.

The Virginia Colony prescribed bodily punishment for not heeding the commands of the master.

Half of the White slaves died within the first two years after their arrival in the American colonies.
Unsurprisingly, it was common for White slaves to run away only to be hunted down and returned to their evil masters and mistresses.

To help identify runaways, the courts in Virginia demanded that everyone have identification and travel papers.

White slaves had no rights whatsoever and could be beaten and cruelly abused with impunity. URL:
"The presence of extremist elements is a new phenomenon," said El-Kashef Muhammad el-Kashef, a member of Parliament who is from El Arish and represents northern Sinai.

"Sinai did not know of extremism over the span of its entire history."

Ahmed Felaifel was just as surprised when his sons started preaching a very strict interpretation of Islam, one that is alien to his tribe, the Sawarka, one of the largest of the Bedouin tribes in the northern Sinai.

The Sawarka, who are practicing Muslims, live by their own laws and customs, handed down for generations.

They herd goats in the desert and grow watermelon and dates.

Mr. Felaifel said it was disturbing when his sons initially refused to work as herders, would not listen to him and heed his wishes, and that it was shocking when they showed up with beards.

The archaeological debate is also partly a debate over the roots of Zionism and the effort to find Jewish origins deep in the land.

Eilat Mazar's latest dig, which has cost about US$500,000, has been sponsored by Roger Hertog, a New York financier who is vice chairman of Alliance Capital Management.

Hertog, who owns a piece of The New York Sun and The New Republic , is also chairman of the board of the Shalem Center in Jerusalem, where Mazar is a senior fellow.

The Shalem Center was founded as Israel's first "neoconservative think-tank," said William Kristol, who is also on the board,

in an effort to give the Israeli right a better foundation in history, economics, archaeology + other topics.

Hertog calls his investment in Mazar "venture philanthropy - you have the opportunity for intellectual speculation, to fund something that is a work of great consequence."

He said he hoped to show "that the Bible reflects Jewish history."

Mazar continues to dig, but right now, three families are living in houses where she would most like to explore.

One family is Muslim, one Christian and one Jewish.

"What she found is fascinating, whatever it is," he said. Amihai Mazar is Eilat Mazar's second cousin, but he has his own reputation to protect.

Archaeologists debate "to what extent Jerusalem was an important city or even a city in the time of David and Samuel," he said.

"Some believe it was tiny and the kingdom unimportant."

The site of ancient Jerusalem, stuck between two valleys on a ridge south of the Temple Mount, is very small, less than 10 acres.

Israel Finkelstein, another renowned archaeologist, has suggested that without significant evidence, Jerusalem in this period was "perhaps not more than a typical hill-country village."

In his book, The Bible Unearthed , Finkelstein writes with Neil Silberman, "Not only was any sign of monumental architecture missing, but so were even simple pottery shards."

Other scholars are skeptical that the foundation walls discovered by the archaeologist, Eilat Mazar, are David's palace.

But they acknowledge that what she has uncovered is rare + important:

a major public building from around the 10.century BC, with pottery shards that date to the time of David and Solomon and a government seal of an official mentioned in the book of Jeremiah .

The discovery is likely to be a new salvo in a major dispute in biblical archaeology:

whether the kingdom of David + Samuel was of some historical magnitude, or whether the men were more like small tribal chieftains, reigning over another dusty hilltop.

Replying to written questions from The Sunday Times through an intermediary, the alleged Shepherd’s Bush bomber said he had been motivated by the war in Iraq, which had made him “very sad”.

“I’m against all wars that cause the deaths of innocent people,” he said. “Too many people are dying there.”

08.Aug.2005 Saturday :: 11.Sep.2004 Mass arrests

This story is typical of the many I have read about the mass arrests by the NYPD (and John Ashcroft) during the Republican National Revival Meeting.

Somehow, I was not too suprised to learn that Pier 57 had been leased by the Republican National Committee. The mass arrests had obviously been planned well in advance.

08.Aug.2005 What did Bibi know + when did he know it? – Justin Raimondo
08.Aug.2005 The scandals that plague the War Party both
in Britain + the U.S. are eclipsed + suddenly, with the prospect of suicide bombers in the streets of London – and perhaps New York – Martin Peretz's battle-cry uttered in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 is taken up once again: "We are all Israelis now." (Although, for good tactical reasons, Ariel Sharon is telling his diplomats not to say this too loudly.)
Who benefits from the London attacks, aside from the obvious candidate, which is bin Laden? With the "
coalition of the willing" showing signs of going wobbly + the recent announcement that Britain was withdrawing a good portion of its forces from Iraq, the political momentum in Britain (and the United States), which was going against the Iraq war, is suddenly reversed. URL:
Netanyahu was no doubt a target of the bomb plot – why else would the terrorists bomb an underground station
directly below the hotel where the investment conference was going to take place? If Israeli intelligence knew about the attacks days in advance + only thought to let Netanyahu in on the secret "minutes" before the bombs went off – well, that's a little hard to believe, now isn't it? (Oh, wait … maybe not.)

"Contrary to original claims that Israel was warned 'minutes before' the first attack, unconfirmed rumors in intelligence circles indicate that the Israeli government actually warned London of the attacks 'a couple of days' previous. Israel has apparently given other warnings about possible attacks that turned out to be aborted operations. The British government did not want to disrupt the G-8 summit in Gleneagles, Scotland, or call off visits by foreign dignitaries to London, hoping this would be another false alarm.
"The British government sat on this information for days and failed to respond. Though the Israeli government is playing along publicly, it may not stay quiet for long. This is sure to apply pressure on Blair very soon for his failure to deter this major terrorist attack."

I would also point out that Stratfor, with its passion for reiterating the obvious, stated in its summary that "there has been massive confusion" over the warning – confusion generated by whom, and to what purpose, is best left to the fertile imaginations of my readers. URL:
Is it worth the
high price we must pay, or is it time to come up with a strategy

a bit more sophisticated than shaking the tree in which the hornets' nest sits –

in the hope that it will eventually fall to the ground? URL:
jihadist mindset is eerily similar to that of our own leaders + their neoconservative amen corner, who continue to advance the proposition that we must fight "the terrorists" in the streets of Baghdad so we don't have to do battle in the streets of London, Rome + New York City. Bush declares that "we are going on the offensive," but, as I pointed out only last week, so are they :

"The President gloats that 'we're on the offense' – and explicitly justifies this on the grounds that we have to go after them before they go after us. Yet why it is impossible for them to attack the U.S. [Ed: or the UK] anyway, even while fighting American troops in Iraq, no one seems to know." URL:
Indeed, the London attacks have opened up a very big can of worms for
Blair's government, and in Washington too, where they're realizing that the "fly trap" tactic they've been employing in Iraq has backfired rather badly.

If the Brits couldn't prevent such a sophisticated and highly coordinated attack at a time like this – when the meeting of the G-8 had British security on high alert – then one can only conclude, along with Scheuer, that the terrorists held back + could have caused far more damage and taken many more lives if they so chose. Perhaps that thought is meant to sink into the British consciousness. The terrorists' message is clear enough: your government can't protect you. This much seems beyond dispute. URL:
Jul.2005 London Terror Mystery What did Bibi know – and when did he know it? by Justin Raimondo

L ondon's Terror Thursday establishes three realities beyond the shadow of a doubt: (1) the West is losing the "war on terrorism," (2) in our present strategic mode, we are essentially defenseless against al-Qaeda's offensive – I agree with Michael Scheuer, the former chief of the CIA's Osama bin Laden unit and author of Imperial Hubris , who said on National Public Radio that this is undoubtedly al-Qaeda's grisly work + (3) there are more than two sides in this war. URL:

With the G-8 meeting being held in Scotland, security measures in the United Kingdom were at an all-time high – and yet, despite that, al-Qaeda pulled off a fairly complex operation, involving four separate bombings,
Es ist schwer, Robin Cooks einsamen Tod in den Bergen von Schottland nicht als Metapher auf seinen politischen Lebenslauf zu lesen:

Ein gescheiterter Gipfelsturm, ein Tod in der Höhe, die einsame dramatische Vergeblichkeit im letzten Akt.
Er wird entsetzlich vermisst, nicht nur in der britischen Politik.

Denn in diesen Zeiten des mainstreaming und des ständigen Schielens auf die eigene Karriere fehlen unkorrumpierbare Einzelne wie Robin Cook ganz besonders. URL:,1518,druck-368697,00.html
Tony Blair musste nach seinem glanzvollen zweiten Wahlsieg von 2001 bereits geahnt haben, dass Cook ihm Probleme bereiten würde. Ethische Außenpolitik ging kaum mit der Tatsache zusammen, dass Großbritannien wesentliche Einkünfte durch Waffenlieferungen - auch in Spannungsgebiete - erzielte. Er ersetzte Cook durch den farblosen Ja-Sager Jack Straw. So fiel es Cook, der zum Commons-Chef bestellt wurde, sicher noch leichter, in Opposition zum Irak-Krieg aus der Regierung zu scheiden. URL:,1518,druck-368697,00.html
Er wurde Labours Schatten-Außenminister in der Opposition und lieferte sein Glanzstück ab, als er den Skandal der Waffenlieferungen in den Irak in einer tödlichen Rede 1994 ausbreitete. Die Tory-Regierung hatte den Untersuchungsbericht über die Affäre erst zwei Stunden vor der Parlamentsdebatte zugestellt, doch Cook, über seine Emissäre bestens vorbereitet, zerpflückte sie in einem Schulbeispiel anklägerischer Rhetorik.
Erstaunlicherweise ging es bei Cook, dem analytischen Kopf nie ohne Ziele jenseits der Sachzwangrealität ab. URL:,1518,druck-368697,00.html
Im übrigen, führte er aus, seien das alles Freunde und alte Kampfgefährten. URL:,1518,druck-368697,00.html
Es waren die Tage der Folterbilder, der Enthauptungen, der aufgedeckten Lügen der Regierung - in diesen Tagen schien jede zweite Schlagzeile zu schreien: Der Kriegsgegner Robin Cook hatte recht. Das war nicht die populärste Position, die man haben konnte auf dieser Party.
Da stand er + sein Nachfolger Jack Straw und Vize-Premier John Prescott bildeten Gruppen weit abseits von ihm und schauten ab und zu herüber + Cook sah zerfurcht aus wie immer, zu alt für sein Alter + ich sagte: "Wenn Blicke töten könnten ..." + er sagte lächelnd: "Aber Blicke können nicht töten, im Gegensatz zu Bomben."URL:,1518,druck-368697,00.html
London - Cook war der brillanteste Redner seiner Partei. Er war glaubwürdiger als Blair, geistreicher als Brown. Wenn er sich in dieser letzten Etappe seiner Karriere im House of Commons von der hintersten Bank erhob und die eigene Regierung ins Fadenkreuz nahm, wurde es still. Der da sprach, war die Opposition im Land, denn die Liberalen hatten niemanden seines Kalibers + die Tories hatten keine eigene Politik.
Robin Cook war klar, ohne Getue, tödlich genau.
Natürlich wurde er zur Instanz besonders am Vorabend des Irak-Krieges, als er den casus belli Blairs zerpflückte und konsequent aus der Regierung schied. Nicht schrill und inkonzise wie Claire Short, nicht überhitzt wie Ken Livingston, sondern sachlich, in resignierter, überzeugender Ruhe. URL:,1518,druck-368697,00.html
Wahlen in Aussicht gestellt
Ould Vall sicherte zu, dass die Junta nicht auf Dauer an der Macht bleiben werde. In spätestens zwei Jahren sollten eine neue Verfassung verabschiedet werden und freie Wahlen stattfinden. Bei den Wahlen werde kein Juntamitglied als Kandidat antreten.
Die Militärs hatten am Mittwoch mit einem unblutigen Putsch den seit 1984 regierenden Ould Taya gestürzt, als dieser sich zu einem Besuch in Saudi-Arabien befunden hatte.
Vier Tage sind seit dem Putsch in Mauretanien vergangen, inzwischen haben die siegreichen Militärführer eine neue Regierung installiert. Eine der ersten Amtshandlungen: 21 radikale Islamisten wurden aus dem Gefängnis befreit.

So hat Bundeswahlleiter Johann Hahlen bereits vor Bekanntgabe der Entscheidung des Bundespräsidenten zur Neuwahl einen speziellen Internet-Service eingerichtet, der Auslandsdeutschen das Herunterladen von Anträgen zur Aufnahme in das Wählerverzeichnis ermöglicht

08.Aug.2005 Gassing New York
Newsday reports that the Department of Homeland Security will gas New York's streets and subways. The intent is to use harmless substances to trace the potential damage of an airborne chemical attack. The test gases will include PFT, or perfluorocarbon tracer gas + sulfur hexafluoride. I have no reason to doubt that these substances are benign.
Even so, let's keep in mind that this is not the first time New York has been gassed by the federal government.

Exactly similar tests occurred in the 1950s, pursuant to the CIA's Project MKULTRA and cognate Defense Department programs.

The simulated attacks were designed to test the spread of airborne biological agents and airborne chemicals.

The tests in New York and San Francisco were quite extensive -- presumably more extensive than the three-week project about to get underway. URL:
08.Aug.2005 already taken note of
this remarkable piece by Clayton Hallmark, which delves deeper into the role played by Italian wheeler-dealer Rocco Martino in the peddling of the Niger forgeries. (Josh Marshall was, I believe, the first to uncover Martino's part in this sorry matter.)

The fakery - + the forthcoming Iraq war - were, according to Hallmark, discussed at a key meeting in Rome, held in December of 2001. Participants included:
1. Michael Ledeen, Karl Rove's foreign policy advisor and organizer of the meeting
2. Nicolo Pollari, head of the the Italian equivalent of the CIA, the SISMI
3. Italy's Minister of Defense, Antonio Martino (no relation apparently to the spy Rocco Martino), Pollari's boss
4. Larry Franklin, an American who presently is being prosecuted in the US for giving classified information to an Israeli front group,

AIPC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) -- which some would call "spying," even though he has not been charged with espionage
5. Harold Rhode: member of Dick Cheney's Office of Special Plans, protege of Ledeen, go-between with Iraqi exile + CIA asset (at the time) Ahmed Chalabi.

Hallmark names the man he considers the likely actual forger: Francesco Pazienza, a long-time friend to Ledeen.

A former SISMI spook (kicked out for criminal activity), Pazienza became a major player in P2, described by Hallmark as an underground intelligence agency.
Which is true enough.

But P2 is much more -- it's a secret society devoted to the resurgence of fascism. P2 was founded by Licio Gelli, a former Mussolini "black shirt" who later functioned as an SS liaison officer.
If Hallmark's report is accurate (and at this point, I must withhold final judgment), then AIPAC has hopped into bed with a partner that would disgust most American Jews.
the Plame/Rove affair. Just such a linkage is a subtext of
this Justin Raimondo column which cites a UPI story (yes, I know who owns UPI) as follows:
Federal law-enforcement officials said that they have developed hard evidence of possible criminal misconduct by two employees of Vice President Dick Cheney's office related to the unlawful exposure of a CIA officer's identity last year. The investigation, which is continuing, could lead to indictments, a Justice Department official said.
"According to these sources, John Hannah and Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis 'Scooter' Libby, were the two Cheney employees. 'We believe that Hannah was the major player in this,' one federal law-enforcement officer said... Hannah was the director for Washington Institute for Near East Policy -- euphoniously acronymed WINEP -- a think tank linked at the hip with AIPAC. URL:

An invitation to religious extremists to use the courts to silence critics of their activities. Sun,


The invitation that has been issued to the Pope to attend the Live8 event in Rome has been condemned by the National Secular Society


The Government’s renewed determination to outlaw "incitement to religious hatred" was condemned today by the National Secular Society.

The National Secular Society is the leading British pressure group speaking out for the rights of atheists, agnostics and all other non-believers. We are fighting to remove religious privileges, as well as the disadvantages — absolute or relative — suffered by those who do not subscribe to a religious faith.

In practical terms, this would include disestablishment of the Church of England and the removal of the bench of 26 bishops from the House of Lords + the conversion of state funded religious schools into community schools open to all – regardless of their faith or lack of it.

As secularists, we maintain that religion should be a matter for the home and place of worship; it should not have privilege in public life, as it does in the UK today. We do, however, affirm the right of everyone to believe or not to believe according to their conscience, and to have the right to change or renounce their faith or belief. Religious bodies should have the same right — but no more — to put forward their views publicly as any other interest group.

06.Aug.2005 Bernie, the NYT's article on AIDs research is a perfect example of the justified paranoia in this country. The religious right have turned the US into something unrecognizable to this 60 year old citizen.
The following link is a story of a writer who posed as a student at a house run by a Christian organization responsible at the beginning for starting the National Prayer Breakfast in 1953 (I think). They have had several names, but only go by The Family now to insure their privacy.
The house is called Ivanwald; located in Arlington, VA in a well-kept subdivision. The young men refer to themselves as The Corps.
This is a long article, but it needs to be read in order to make clear that those of us who seem paranoid are just being realistic. This is frightening reading because it describes an organization that has had hidden power for decades and continues to grow and attain more power, geometrically with this administation as an advocate.

This sounds cynical to be sure, but I don't think we can assure ourselves that there will be an 'election' in 2004. Those of us who voice dissent and concern for the preemptive strike policy of the United States should take a careful look at the

00.Jun.2001 +

00.Jul.2001 executive orders of the President, the military order of

13.Nov.2001 + subsequent orders redistributing the powers between the Attorney General and Homeland Security (the name itself bring shivers down the spine). The 2000 'election' process was foreboding, a warning of things to come from this administration which approaches, if not has succeeded in becoming, a theocratic oligarchy. Those who have not yet done so may want to read Lewis Laptham's recent piece in Harper's and Jeff Schelly's article on Ivanwald and The Cedars entitled "Jesus plus Nothing", wherein he describes through an undercover investigation that he learned that the most powerful men in this country have essentially worshipped the way!
s and ideals of power and ideology practiced by Hitler, Stalin + Mao Zedong. America's top 'leaders' send their sons to Ivanwald to learn the ways of 'leadership' with an eye toward sending them out into the business world and politics. The 'leader' of this organization called "The Family", reminiscent of the Mafia but with less honor and - if you can imagine it - less scruples, uses parables invoking Hitler as the great example of world power and domination. Ed Meese is a member of the organization, not surprisingly + gives inspirational talks at Tuesday morning PRayer Breakfasts. Bush I and Bush II have attended the National Prayer Breakfasts hosted by this organization, which also bosts having been the invisible government (as discussed in the late David Wise's book of the same name) since the 1940's (including being one of the closest advisors to President Eisenhower).

If this isn't food for thought, I don't know what is. I am one of the voices of dissent and know that a sense of futility is our worst enemy. But I recognize that in these recent days, that sense grows stronger and the gloomy shadow of Margaret Atwood's Handmaid's Tale looms larger as Congress chips further at women's reproductive rights + has already eviscerated the Bill of Rights. When a conservative organization like the ABA starts spending money to run 1/4 page and full page ads in the NY Times hailing our Bill of Rights and warning people to speak out in protection of these precious rights, we know something gave is afoot. When the Attorney General seeks to kill impoverished and non-Anglo (and diagnosed 'mentally retarded') defendants in 30 cases where local federal prosecutors have determined it unconstitutional, we should all be quite afraid of our own government.

We should read the Declaration of Independence in its entirety in the coming days, as well as the Consitutional separation of powers doctrine, the article giving Congress the exclusive power to declare war + the war powers act in its original form to compare these visions of America with the one with which Bush seeks to replace them. The horror story is here at home and has been set ablaze on foreign shores - innocents to be harmed in both arenas.

The next time anyone asks a defense attorney, how can you defend 'those people'?, perhaps you should step up to the plate and declare that without attorneys willing to defend those people we would not have the rights that in the coming days, months + years we will cling to in our own defense.
06.Aug.2005 By the way: If you want to know what the American military will face once Ledeen + his buds get the war they so obviously hope to ignite, check out
this report in Asia Times.

They now have lots and lots (and lots ) of increasingly precise long-range missiles. It ain't gonna be so pretty this time, my friends. Very quickly, the nuclear option will become the only option.

06.Aug.2005 Ledeen is a veteran Iran-contra schemer who was also tied, in many published reports, to P2, an infamous quasi-fascist secret society which had infiltrated much of Italy's government and intelligence services. Ledeen played a key role in spreading the proven lie that Bulgaria ordered the attempt to kill John Paul II. (Come to think of it, NBC also did everything it could to promote that hallucination.) Ledeen is still best buds with bank robber Ahmed Chalabi + with the shadowy Iranian arms dealer Manucher Ghorbanifar. Despite Ledeen's pro-Israel -- no, let's be more precise: pro- Likud -- pronouncements, his real intellectual leanings go toward
fascism, Italian-style.
(By the way, Ledeen's daughter Simone was part of the coalition authority in Iraq -- despite having very few qualifications. But she did have the right last name.)
05.Aug.2005 Blame Iran! If the mainstream media is so damned "liberal," then why has it become a dumping ground for neocon horsecrap? We all know the sad tale of Judith "Marionette" Miller of the allegedly leftish New York Times . But let's not overlook
Jim Miklaszewski of NBC:
The massive roadside bomb that killed 14 Marines Wednesday flipped their 37-ton vehicle on its top and blew it some 40 feet down the road.
Tonight, there’s disturbing information that some of the most sophisticated of these deadly weapons are reportedly coming from Iran.
U.S. military and intelligence officials tell NBC News that American soldiers intercepted a large shipment of high explosives, smuggled into northeastern Iraq from Iran only last week. S'funny -- not long ago we had a flurry of stories talking about the increasingly close ties between Iran and the Iraqi government of Iyad Allawi (installed, as Seymour Hersh clarified, in a U.S.-rigged election). Now we're told that Iran is providing bombs to the insurgents who hope to deep-six Allawi.
