Today is Qods Day. A day when all Muslims are instructed to pretend that Jerusalem is so much more than it ever was to them.

How much more is well elucidated by Elder of Ziyon Here and Here .

Now never let me be accused of suspecting acts of Insincerity from the enemies of Israel, because I truly believe it is actually the opposite. Israel's enemies are more known for their Acting of Sincerity.

As Homer once wrote 'Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another.' [ref]

Apparently Iran's "Religous Webblogs Office" wants all blogs to commemorate this day.

Special request to Muslim Bloggers from ISNA

Each weblog is a cry against the Zionist regime on Qods day

ISNA - Tehran
Service: View to Weblogs

TEHRAN, Oct.18 (ISNA)-Iran's religious weblogs development office has invited all webloggers to take part in the Qods day rally.

"The webloggers have always shown their conscience and awareness in the matters of Palestine in the virtual world, so it is also their duty to take part with their country men along with other Muslims all over the world in the rally on Qods day," declared the statement by the religious Weblogs office.

"Each Weblog is a cry against the oppressive and tyrannical Zionist regime," concluded the statement.

Which is quite a paradox. In the one hand you have the Mullahs doing everything they can to stifle 'on line' opinion and dissent, then the very same Mullahs are now recognising the power of numbers in the blogging community.

I've blogged about this before, CyberJihad.
In essence in 2000 Israel had 1,270,00 million Internet connections,
Iran:250,000 about 5:1

In 2005 Israel had Internet 3,200,000 connections and Iran had Internet connections 7,500,000 about 3:7 which is a phenomal turn around.

It seems the Mullahs have now realised just how powerful this 'borg' collective can be.

What it really comes down to is there are roughly 14.5 Million Jews [2005: JVL] on this planet, and there are 1.8 billion Muslims [2006: Islamicpopulation.com] on this planet screaming the Jews did it!

Even allowing for total saturation of Internet connections for Jewish Households, it doesn't bode well in comparison, we got a good insight into Muslim media manipulation during the Israel - Hezbollah war.

So despite the creation of Qods day, despite the creation of the Jerusalem myth in Muslims hearts, which ties in well with the recent denial of any Jewish History at the Kotel by Muslims. I too celebrate the beauty and essence of what is Jerusalem.

You see, Muslims would cherish any piece of land that 'others' desired, that is the essence of the 'conquest religion', but despite there 1.8 billion adherents there's one thing they underestimate. What it means to be a Jew.

So when we say next year in Jerusalem, let us not forget exactly what and where we are thinking of.

Borat gets invited 'Home'.

Borat: Paris is full of Lovers

A top Kazakh official has an invitation for the British comedian whose depiction of a homophobic, misogynistic, English-mangling Kazakh journalist has outraged the Central Asian nation: come visit.

The Deputy Foreign Minister, Rakhat Aliyev, said in an interview published today that he understands why Kazakhs are unhappy about Sacha Baron Cohen's character, Borat.

"But we must have a sense of humour and respect other people's freedom of creativity," Mr Aliyev was quoted as saying by Kazakhstan Today.

"I'd like to invite Cohen here," he said. "He can discover a lot of things. Women drive cars, wine is made of grapes and Jews are free to go to synagogues."

[Click More to...]

Though to some Cohen's antics are potentially more insulting to Americans, Kazakhs have long seethed at his popularity and his maligning of their country. Cohen's Borat character has presented inhabitants of the ex-Soviet republic as addicted to horse urine, fond of shooting dogs, and viewing rape and incest as respectable hobbies.

Kazakh officials have tried to respond to the outrageous descriptions.

The Foreign Ministry recently ran ads on CNN, in The New York Times, and the International Herald Tribune citing laudable - though slightly boring - facts and figures on the nation's economic growth, civil liberties and cultural achievements.

Kazakh officials are also wincing at the imminent US premiere of Cohen's full-length feature movie Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.

"It's useless to offend an artist and threaten to sue him," Mr Aliyev was quoted as saying. "It will only further damage the country's reputation and make Borat even more popular."

Now Gypsies want Borat banned

A German group representing Gypsies says it has filed a suit to try to stop British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen showing his latest film in Germany.

"We are accusing him of defamation and inciting violence against [Gypsies]," said Marko Knudsen, head of the European Centre of Antiziganism Research.

Antiziganism refers to hostility to gypsies.

[Click More to...]

The group said it had filed a complaint to prosecutors over the film, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, saying it treated violence and discrimination against Gypsy peoples as acceptable behaviour.

State prosecutors in Hamburg will investigate the allegations before deciding whether to take action.

In the satirical film, which is due to open in Germany on November 2, Cohen, creator of the comic character Ali G, plays Borat Sagdiyev, a fictional Kazakh television journalist who travels to the United States to report back on the American way of life.

The film's comic barbs also target Gypsies, Jews, women and many other groups.

The complaint adds to a series of protests against Cohen's creation, whose comedy character's views are not only racist and anti-Semitic but also misogynist and homophobic.

Some of the most prominent criticism has come from Kazakhstan, Borat's central Asian homeland.

Knudsen's group has asked for an injunction to stop the film from being shown in Germany.

"We called the distributors, but they laughed at us," he said.

Kazakistan Prints Money with Spelling Mistake

Not only that but who is this nobody head,
why not use my good head?

The Kazakhstan central bank has misspelled the word "bank" on its new notes.

The bank plans to put the misprinted notes - worth 2000 tenge ($20) and 5000 tenge ($50) - into circulation in November and then gradually withdraw them to correct the spelling.

The move has drawn the ire of the Central Asian state's politicians who urged the bank to abandon the notes altogether.

"The mistake ... is not just a spelling problem - it has political undertones," a letter from members of parliament to President Nursultan Nazarbayev said.

"We urge you to tell the National Bank not to put out the notes with a mistake in the Kazakh language."

BB: Rumor has it that apparently Borat is claiming that they have also put the wrong head on the notes.

Indonesia has 18.7 Million Muslims that believe Violence and Jihad are Justified

JAKARTA (Reuters) - Around one in 10 Indonesian Muslims support jihad and justify bomb attacks on Indonesia's tourist island of Bali as defending the faith, a survey released on Sunday showed.

Indonesia is the world's fourth most populous country, with 220 million people, 85 percent of whom follow Islam, giving the Asian archipelago the largest Muslim population of any nation in the world.

"Jihad that has been understood partially and practiced with violence is justified by around one in 10 Indonesian Muslims," the Indonesian Survey Institute said in a statement.

"They approved the bombings conducted ... in Bali with the excuse of defending Islam," it added, saying the percentage of such support "is very significant."

While the vast majority of Indonesia's Muslims are relatively moderate, there has been an increasingly vocal militant minority and political pressure for more laws that are in line with hardline Muslim teachings.

[Click Mr Bagel to read More]

The poll surveyed a random sample of 1,092 Muslim men and women.

Bombings in Bali in October 2002 blamed on the militant Southeast Asian Jemaah Islamiah network killed 202 people, mostly foreign tourists. Suicide blasts in Bali a year ago killed 20.

The survey found one in five Indonesian Muslims more generally supported the aims of Jemaah Islamiah -- an armed movement backing the creation of an Islamic superstate linking Muslim Indonesia and Malaysia, and Muslim areas in the Philippines and Thailand.

In the past, it has cooperated closely with al Qaeda's global anti-Western campaign, but in recent years many in Jemaah Islamiah have focused more on the regional struggle.

Indonesia has had a major attack against high profile Western-linked targets each year from 2002 through 2005. Authorities tied all the attacks to elements of Jemaah Islamiah.

Indonesia is not officially an Islamic state.

If you extrapolate the sample of the population 1,092 and you use this figure of around 1 in ten Muslims believe Jihad is justified then:
[ignoring statistical error]
Total Population: 220 million
Percentage Muslim 85%=187 Million
% of Muslims 'Violent' = 10%
Therefore there are 18.7 Million Muslims that believe Jihad,.. is justified.

18.7 Million.

How do you feel now?
I'm a close neighbour to Indonesia.

Israel's Ambassador to Australia called back to Jerusalem

From the AJN

ISRAELI Ambassador Nati Tamir, on his way back to Canberra following a short visit to Israel, has been recalled to Jerusalem to explain comments he reportedly made to a newspaper about Asians having "yellow skin and slanted eyes".
Tamir was reported to have made the comments in Ha'aretz last week before he departed from Israel.
He said Israel and Australia are "like sisters in Asia", because "we don't have yellow skin and slanted eyes".
Israel's Foreign Ministry on Friday condemned the remarks, saying Tamir had been recalled to clarify if he was accurately reported.
Spokeswoman Ilana Ravid said that Tamir, who has been in his post since January 2005, was called back to Jerusalem for a "further clarification".

Ravid said the fact that the ministry called Tamir back as he was en route to Australia was a measure of how seriously it took the matter.
She said Tamir had told the ministry his comments were not accurately reported.
Tamir was quoted in Ha'aretz as saying: "Israel and Australia are like sisters in Asia. We are in Asia without the characteristics of Asians. We don't have yellow skin and slanted eyes.
"Asia is basically the yellow race. Australia and Israel are not - we are basically the white race. We are on the western side of Asia and they are on the southeastern side."
The Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Friday saying that if the report was accurate, the remarks were "grave and unacceptable", and the ministry would not be able to carry on with "business as usual".
Tamir, who previously served as ambassador to Finland and also served in various posts in Washington, Tokyo and Strasbourg, is also Israel's non-resident ambassador to New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Fiji.

One small hug for One Man, One Giant hug for Mankind

I was thinking about the influence Juan Mann may have with his Free Hugs campaign, cynically I put it down to the worries people have of the immediate future, and the basic desire of humans to be wanted and needed.

Then I thought, just maybe this could be the start of something.

Bigger and realer than the Free Love of the 60's.

The 60's were famous for several major events one was 'Free Love'
another was Neil Armstrong's steps on the moon.

When he stepped on the moon he said
"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

FREE HUGS FROM AUSTRALIA The Campaign continues

I must admit when I saw this video it made me thnk it was cute but I thought the guy was kinda 'out there' being so brave/foolish to actually ask/give free hugs. Lets face it every one needs a hug.

There's a multiple Australian connection to this video the Band that is the 'background' to the clip is no other than 'Sick Puppies' a 'once' [yesterday] struggling Band from Australia. The Guy offering the free Hugs (now co-ordinator the Free Hug campaign) is a Sydneysider [Australian]

Free-hug man speaks out

The man behind the latest YouTube sensation has spoken out for the first time about his global cuddling controversy.
Serial hugger Juan Mann describes the free hugs he hands out in Pitt Street Mall as fast-food emotion.

His cuddling campaign received an international dose of publicity today, after a clip showing his public displays of affection won a coveted front page spot on the video sharing website.
An American television audience of millions also watched him at work, when the video was broadcast on the prime-time breakfast program Good Morning America yesterday.
Today, the hugger was at it again, brandishing his "free hugs" sign in the busy pedestrian thoroughfare, and having quite a few people take him up on his offer.
"It's a way to make people smile," Mann said.
"For every person who gets a hug, you see five walk past with a smile on their face."
Juan Mann (pronounced one man) is a play on words, but the hugger insisted his rules included no names, no phone numbers, no relationships and no dates.
The hit video came about after a meeting - and a hug - more than a year ago with the lead singer of the Sick Puppies, a Sydney band made up of three former Mosman High School students.
The singer, Shimon Moore, was working odd jobs by day and playing gigs by night.
"I was one of those guys in Pitt Street Mall with a sandwich board advertising a shoe sale," Moore told smh.com.au today.
The two became mates, and Moore borrowed his father's video camera to shoot footage of the hug man at work.
But his efforts to spread the love became a little too popular for some people's liking, according to a blurb on the YouTube video, which said: "As this symbol of human hope spread across the city, police and officials ordered the Free Hugs campaign BANNED."
Undeterred, Mann collected more than 10,000 signatures on a petition he presented to the City of Sydney council. Demands for a halt to the hugs petered out shortly after, and the end of the clip shows Mann hugging an official.
Speaking by phone from Los Angeles, where the Sick Puppies moved a year ago, the lead singer said he mixed the video with their song All The Same as a gift for his friend, to lift his spirits after his grandmother died.
It had the desired effect. Four days ago, the band posted the clip on YouTube. By 3pm today, it had close to 700,000 hits and almost 6000 comments, most of them gushing.
Like this one: "Made me cry. I love you all!"
The musician said the video had taken Mann's mission worldwide.
"He's achieved what he set out to do and I was lucky enough to be there to film it," Moore said.
There are even plans for a mass free hug-fest at midday on Monday, which could come in handy if the Sydney Swans don't win the premiership.
City worker Elly Mitchell, who handed out a few free hugs on her lunch break today, said she was inspired to organise the event after seeing the video online.
"We're going to hug the city," Ms Mitchell said.
A City of Sydney spokesman Josh MacKenzie said he could find no record of rangers asking Mann to move on.
"In fact, the feeling around the office is one of support for his campaign to spread a bit of happiness and love in the CBD," the spokesman said.
Asked if he had accepted a free hug, the council spokesman said he hadn't.
"But I'm sure council staff would welcome the opportunity to have a hug," he said.


Sometimes, a hug is all what we need. Free hugs is a real life controversial story of Juan Mann, A man whos sole mission was to reach out and hug a stranger to brighten up their lives.
In this age of social disconnectivity and lack of human contact, the effects of the Free Hugs campaign became phenomenal.
As this symbol of human hope spread accross the city, police and officials ordered the Free Hugs campaign BANNED. What we then witness is the true spirit of humanity come together in what can only be described as awe inspiring.
In the Spirit of the free hugs campaign, PASS THIS TO A FRIEND and HUG A STRANGER! After all, If you can reach just one person...


PS. The response to this video has been nothing short of overwhelming and touching. Hugs to every single one of you who messaged. There has been thousands of emails from all over the world by people seeking to participate in the Free Hugs campaign and asking for permission. You do not need permission. This is the peoples movement, this is *your* movement. With nothing but your bare hands you can make THE difference.

If the Video doesn't work then try this FREE HUGS
