Top secret deal maker , Sue-Ann Levy, Toronto Sun, Nov. 3, 06

With his trademark pitbull-like persistence, Coun. Mike Del Grande has at long last solved the mystery of who was behind the move to award an exclusive $710-million subway car contract to Bombardier.

Step forward, former city councillor and TTC Commissioner, long-time NDPer and now federal MP Olivia Chow.

According to the confidential minutes of a Sept. 21, 2005 TTC meeting, Chow -- at the time TTC vice-chairman -- moved the motion that began the negotiations with Bombardier to purchase the 234 subway cars on a "sole-source basis."

Slightly more than two months later -- on Dec. 7, 2005 -- Chow resigned from council to run federally. [....]

The Crusades and Islamic Terrorism , Friday, November 3, 2006 at 12:20pm, EclectEcon

One of the comments I often read or hear when people are discussing the Islamic terrorism is that after all, didn't the West start it all with the Crusades? Here is a strong argument that no, the West didn't start it all with the Crusades

Mark Steyn: America Alone


, New York Post, Oct. 17, 06

Mark Steyn was a winner of the 2006 Eric Breindel Award for Excellence in Opinion Journalism. Excerpted with permission from "America Alone: The End of the World as We KnowIt" (Regnery).

October 17, 2006 -- New Hampshire-based columnist Mark Steyn is one of the most trenchant writers in the English-speaking world today. Hitting stores this week is his new book, "America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It" - a grim look at the West's fecklessness in the face of the threat from radical Islam. The Post is happy to give its readers a taste with this excerpt. [Read it online: New York Post link above]

[....] So an insurgency that lurks within a religion automatically has a global network. And you don't need "deep cover": You can hang your shingle on Main Street and we won't even notice it. And when we do - as we did on 9/11 - we still won't do anything about it, because, well, it's a religion, and modern man is disinclined to go after any faith except perhaps his own.

But Islam is not just a religion. Those lefties who bemoan what America is doing to provoke "the Muslim world" would go bananas if any Western politician started referring to "the Christian world." When such sensitive guardians of the separation of church and state endorse the first formulation but not the second, they implicitly accept that Islam has a political sovereignty too. Thus, it's not merely that there's a global jihad lurking within this religion, but that the religion itself is a political project - and, in fact, an imperial project - in a way that modern Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism are not.

Six Arab states join rush to go nuclear -- Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, UAE and Saudi Arabia seek atom technology , By Richard Beeston, Diplomatic Editor

[....] The move, which follows the failure by the West to curb Iran’s controversial nuclear programme, could see a rapid spread of nuclear reactors in one of the world’s most unstable regions, stretching from the Gulf to the Levant and into North Africa.

The countries involved were named by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Saudi Arabia. Tunisia and the UAE have also shown interest.

All want to build civilian nuclear energy programmes, as they are permitted to under international law. But the sudden rush to nuclear power has raised suspicions that the real intention is to acquire nuclear technology which could be used for the first Arab atomic bomb.

“Some Middle East states, including Egypt, Morocco, Algeria and Saudi Arabia, have shown initial interest [in using] nuclear power primarily for desalination purposes,” Tomihiro Taniguch, the deputy director-general of the IAEA, told the business weekly Middle East Economic Digest. He said that they had held preliminary discussions with the governments and that the IAEA’s technical advisory programme would be offered to them to help with studies into creating power plants.

Bravo, Paul Williams! "Author helped expose Canada terrorists:, June, 6, 06

When Canadian law enforcement authorities busted a Toronto terrorist plot with al-Qaida connections, they acted with the benefit of briefings and research developed by American investigator Paul L. Williams, author of the new WND Books release "Dunces of Doomsday: 10 Blunders that Gave Rise to Radical Islam."

[....] Williams has long been investigating the link between terrorist operatives and Canada's McMaster University. Williams' research has unveiled a complex, highly connected group of radical Islamic professors – many of whom earned their advanced degrees from McMaster – strategically recruiting radical Islamic jihadists and converted sympathizers who enrolled as students under aliases for terrorist training and to steal radioactive material from the university.

Re: Jihad University CA: Seeks to repress research

Dr. Paul L. Williams is an American author, journalist, and consultant, and, for over a decade, has taught philosophy, religion, and the humanities as an adjunct professor at The University of Scranton and Wilkes University.

Paul came to international prominence in early June, 2006, as a result of his central involvement as an investigator the month prior into the suspicious activities of members of the facultyof McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. These investigations, paired with investigations being conducted by Ontario police eventually led to the arrests of 17 terrorist suspects by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). [....]

Ciro Vitolo has come forward to say he is not the FBI-hunted Al Qaeda terrorist Adnan "Jafar the Pilot" El Shukrijumah, who is believed to have posed as a student at Hamilton’s McMaster University.

At the request of Judi McLeod, Ciro Vitolo--whose picture appears with McMaster’s graduate engineering Class of 98-- checked into Canada Free Press’s Elm Street office, late Thursday afternoon.

In real life, Ciro Vitolo--who admits that he bears a striking resemblance to terrorist El Shukrijumah--is a limo driver, whose next door neighbour says puts in 12-hour shifts working at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.

Human smuggling - Prostitution, Abuse of Women

Jail for gang who smuggled in sex slaves for brothels , Michael Horsnell, Nov. 4, 06,,2-2436798,00.html

A RUTHLESS gang of Malaysian and Vietnamese traffickers who lured hundreds of women to Britain to work as sex slaves in a £2 million-a-year vice racket were jailed yesterday.

[....] The man behind the operation, Thanh Hue Thi, 44, a cook from Golders Green, northwest London, recruited women aged 18 to 24 and smuggled them in, posing as tourists, to work in brothels in Bayswater, West London, and Edgbaston, Birmingham. He admitted trafficking women for prostitution and was jailed for five years.

[....] The judge said that urgent inquiries should be made into the brothel boss’s status in this country, and that, if he were here illegally, he should be deported upon release. Also in the dock was Kenny Low, 50, a chef, of Mayfair, Central London. He, too, admitted trafficking conspiracy and controlling prostitution and was jailed for 3½ years.

Leng Loh, 25, from Hay Park, Birmingham, Choon Fong Loh, 64, of Mayfair, and Kwok Leong Hoh, 25, of Berkhampsted, Hertfordshire, were all jailed for 15 months for controlling prostitution. Godfrey Wong, 21, of Rowley Regis, West Midlands, was jailed for 12 months. [....]

The 4:34 Dance and Spousal Abuse: "Beat them lightly... It's in the Koran.", Friday, October 27, 2006 at 1:05pm. From last Sunday's Washington Post

[....] Verse 4:34 retains a strong following, even among many who say that women must be treated as equals under Islam. Indeed, Muslim scholars and leaders have long been doing what I call "the 4:34 dance" — they reject outright violence against women but accept a level of aggression that fits contemporary definitions of domestic violence.

Western leaders, including British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi, have recently focused on Muslim women's veils as an obstacle to integration in the West. But to me, it is 4:34 that poses the much deeper challenge of integration. How the Muslim world interprets this passage will reveal whether Islam can be compatible with life in the 21st century.
