UNWRA to get $55 Million from US
( The United States has agreed to provide the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) with an additional $55 million in funding, according an AP report. The latest pledge would bring the total the agency has received from the U.S. in 2009 [just in 2009?!] to $154.5 million.

The UNRWA was created in 1949 [multiply that by $154.5M!] to provide health, education, housing, and financial services to Palestinian Authority Arabs in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza.

WHO is it in the “United States” who “has agreed . . .”? Certainly not me.,7340,L-3729414,00.html
Mubarak: Netanyahu Will Agree to Two States
“Israel will agree to the two-state solution," Mubarak said in an interview with Egyptian media on Wednesday, "I spoke with Netanyahu and told him there was no other option. Ultimately the solution will be one of two states – the State of Israel alongside an Arab state."

Mubarak said that Netanyahu did not counter his assertion.

Oh, say it ain't so, Joe. And so the world goes out with a whimper, not a bang. [Would whoever knows the author of that quote please let me know?]
Debate Erupts Over Muslim School in Virginia
FAIRFAX, Va. — For years, children’s voices rang out from the playground at the Islamic Saudi Academy in this heavily wooded community about 20 miles west of Washington. But for the last year the campus has been silent as academy officials seek county permission to erect a new classroom building and move hundreds of students from a sister campus on the other end of Fairfax County.

The proposal from the academy, which a school spokeswoman said was the only school financed by the Saudi government in the United States, [and this is something they want to crow about? And is it true that's it's the "only"?] has ignited a noisy debate and exposed anew the school’s uneasy relationship with its neighbors.

. . . others object to the academy’s curriculum, saying it espouses a fundamentalist interpretation of Islam known as Wahhabism. A leaflet slipped into mailboxes in early spring called the school “a hate-training academy.” . . .

Kamal S. Suliman, 46, a state traffic engineer with three daughters at the academy, called the accusations “fear tactics and stereotyping.” . . .

The term "stereotyping," or "stereotypes" has just begun to show up in the Muslim buzzword scatology. Probably the work of the Ikhwan.
A 10-year Truce Between Islam and the West
Rome – From the bosom of the world Muslim community, two contrasting voices have been distinctly heard in the wake of President Obama's speech in Cairo. One, arising from the extremists, exhorts jihad.

The other, arising from throngs of approving moderates, wants his promises delivered.

The voices of the extremists were comparatively feeble, and that is of the utmost significance: It means that the overwhelming majority of the Muslim community is poised to accept new proposals coming from Washington, provided they are bold and far-reaching. . . .

Oh, bunk. This is an article from the Christian Monitor, which recently told us that we had to agree to most anything the Muslims wanted or else there’d never be peace in the world. Give in, give in, give in! This reporter has no real clue what’s in the Islamic mind.

Muhammad broke the first 10-year treaty with the Meccans. There's never ever been a successful 10-year treaty w/Muslims. The CM is dreaming about something that will never be.
Iraq Spy from Sterling Heights [Michigan] Gets 46 Months
A Sterling Heights man who pleaded guilty to aiding Iraq without approval from the U.S. government was sentenced today to 46 months in prison.

“I apologize to the court for what happened,” said Najib Shemami, 62, who was born in Iraq but later because [became?] a U.S. citizen [why? Because we have no clue as to why any follower of Islam becomes a US citizen?]. “Trust me. I swear to God I didn’t mean no harm to no one.”

Federal prosecutors had recommended nearly four years in prison for Shemami, who pleaded guilty to a violation of the international emergency economic powers act in January.

U.S District Court Judge Nancy Edmunds agreed with the recommendation, saying today that Shemami's activity created the "terrible potential to undermine the security of the United States."

And once again, our judges and juries get it right. Apparently, no one trusted him.
Man with Toronto 18 Ties Convicted in the U.S.
An Atlanta man with ties to members of the so-called Toronto 18 [] terror cell has been convicted of plotting to aid a terrorist group by videotaping landmarks around Washington, D.C.

U.S. District Judge Bill Duffey found Syed Haris Ahmed, 24, guilty of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorism in the U.S. and abroad.

Ahmed faces up to 15 years in prison. The judge delayed sentencing until co-defendant Ehsanul Islam Sadequee's trial begins in August.

There’s a grand pattern forming here, and it’s always against the bad guys and pro-American. I don’t know if somebody like Mr. Obama will ever notice, but I sure do.

Four stories re: Our liberals winning. If they ever learn that this doesn’t work, it’ll most likely be way too late for the rest of us:
