Refusing to place the monument in
Manhattan, or on the scenic Jersey City waterfront (where Goldman Sachs is
Headquartered), US authorities instead dump Putin’s gift in a depressed and
unseen spot in Bayonne, NJ.  (around the corner from a
junkyard!) The media gives the beautiful memorial, dedicated by Putin
himself, a total silent treatment.






There is no evidence that gunman Mohamed Merah had links with al-Qaeda or other terror groups, a French official has said.

The official, who is close to the investigation into Merah’s killing spree, said there is no sign he had “trained or been in contact with organised groups or jihadists”.

One of the repercussions of this tragic event is now Pres. Sarkozy looks to censor the internet and  jail those who visit extremist web sites, and treat them the same way like those consuming child pornography. “Anyone who regularly consults Internet sites which promote terror or hatred or violence will be sentenced to prison,” he told a campaign rally in Strasbourg, in eastern France. “What is possible for pedophiles should be possible for trainee terrorists and their supporters, too.”

 Censoring the net in a democratic country like France is contradictory to what being democratic is all about. Giving up liberties for safety is a stupid and dangerous notion.
