Reuters: Al Qaeda 'militants', not terrorists

With its policy of pseudo-neutrality, Reuters refused to refer to Al Qaeda members as terrorists. Instead, they're 'militants'. Reuters: Al Qaeda militant urges militants to keep up jihad:
DUBAI (Reuters) - A man believed to be a top al Qaeda militant who escaped from a U.S. airbase in Afghanistan last year said in a statement that the tide had turned against the West but urged Muslims to keep up their holy war.
Note the title. Not only are low-level members of al-Qaeda 'militants' according to Reuters, but high-ranking terrorist leaders are also 'militants'.

If you behead non-Muslim civilians Reuters won’t call you a terrorist. Somehow, by Reuters’ reasoning, beheading civilians is an act of ‘militancy’. Not terrorism, no way. Routine executions of homosexuals, something engaged in by all Islamic terrorist groups, are also acts of ‘militancy’. The liberal media must think that homosexuals are military targets (the left-wing is only for gay rights when they don’t conflict with liberal pro-Islamism). Likewise, keeping women in a virtual state of slavery, something practiced throughout the Muslim world, is also ‘militancy’. Just like those insidious gays, females are a clear military threat (the left-wing only supports female rights when they don’t conflict with Islam, too). Flying two airplanes into the center of a highly-populated city, with the sole intent of killing as many infidels as possible, is also an act of ‘militancy’ according to the liberal media. Remember, it’s not terrorism. Don’t you dare call it terrorism, or you’ll offend Muslims - Muslims who sympathize with the ‘militants’.

Every time a news agency engages in an absurd level of political correctness by referring to terrorists as ‘militants’ they implicitly give terrorism a legitimate military status. By doing this they equate groups like al-Qaeda and Hamas with legitimate militants. They equate terrorist attacks to military strikes. Attacks on civilian cities become morally equivalent to attacks on terrorist camps.

Fat holocaust denier set free in Austria

David Irving (Reuters, right), notorious Holocaust denying pseudo-historian and all around fat pig, was released from jail in Austria following an appeal on his 3 year sentence. In Austria, denying the Holocaust is a crime that can land you up to 10 years in jail. BBC, Holocaust denier to be released:
An Austrian appeals court has ruled that UK historian David Irving - jailed for denying the Holocaust - should be released on probation.

Irving is now being held in police detention and will be deported to the UK on Thursday, officials said.

Irving was convicted in February in a case that sparked international debate about the limits of freedom of speech.

In 1989 he spoke in Austria denying the existence of gas chambers at Auschwitz, though he later said he was "mistaken".

The appeals court in Vienna had heard calls for both a reduction and increase in his sentence.

Irving on Wednesday welcomed his release and said he was "fit and well".
Although the Biased Broadcasting Clique hails Irving as a "UK historian," the academic world has rejected his status as such. He is no more a historian than bigfoot researchers are scientists.

And for those who believe that Irving shouldn't have been "persecuted for free speech," note this: free speech does not include libel, slander, hate speech, or incitement to genocide.

Oslo: Most rapes committed by non-Western immigrants.

Aftenposten, Oslo rape statistics shock:
Two out of three charged with rape in Norway's capital are immigrants with a non-western background according to a police study. The number of rape cases is also rising steadily.The study is the first where the crime statistics have been analyzed according to ethnic origin. Of the 111 charged with rape in Oslo last year, 72 were of non-western ethnic origin, 25 are classified as Norwegian or western and 14 are listed as unknown.

Rape charges in the capital are spiraling upwards, 40 percent higher from 1999 to 2000 and up 13 percent so far this year.

Nine out of ten cases do not make it to prosecution, most of them because police do not believe the evidence is sufficient to reach a conviction.

Police Inspector Gunnar Larsen of Oslo's Vice, Robbery and Violent crime division says the statistics are surprising - the rising number of rape cases and the link to ethnic background are both clear trends. But Larsen does not want to speculate on the reasons behind the worrying developments.

While 65 percent of those charged with rape are classed as coming from a non-western background, this segment makes up only 14.3 percent of Oslo's population. Norwegian women were the victims in 80 percent of the cases, with 20 percent being women of foreign background.

Libya sentences Palestinian doctor for spreading HIV

On one hand we have Libya, a known state sponsor of terrorism. On the other hand we have a Palestinian, the vast majority of who support suicide attacks. It's difficult to tell what the real story is in this case. However, Libya came to a conclusion - a Palestinian doctor and four other medical staff is guilty of deliberately spreading the HIV virus to children. Reuters, Foreign medics sentenced to die in Libya case:

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - A Libyan court sentenced five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor to death on Tuesday for deliberately infecting hundreds of children with the virus that causes AIDS, provoking a chorus of Western condemnation.
It's ironic that a Palestinian has been found guilty of infecting people with the HIV virus considering the AIDS blood libel that exists in the Arab world. If you don't know, "The Jews" are blamed for inventing and spreading the HIV virus by Palestinians.

Haniyeh's son shot in the face

BBC, Gaza border shots 'targeted PM':

A bodyguard was killed and Mr Haniya's son was shot in the face as the fire fight erupted at the Rafah checkpoint.

Too strange for fiction

MSNBC, World's tallest man saves dolphins:
BEIJING - The long arms of the world’s tallest man reached in and saved two dolphins by pulling plastic material out of their stomachs, state media and an aquarium official said Thursday.

The dolphins got sick after nibbling on plastic from the edge of their pool at an aquarium in Liaoning province. Attempts to use surgical instruments to remove the plastic failed because the dolphins’ stomachs contracted in response to the instruments, the China Daily newspaper reported.

Veterinarians then decided to ask for help from Bao Xishun, a 7-foot-9 herdsman from Inner Mongolia with 41.7-inch arms, state media said.

Bao, 54, was confirmed last year by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s tallest living man.

Circumcision to cut AIDS rate in half

NY Times, H.I.V. Risk Halved by Circumcision, U.S. Agency Finds:
Circumcision appears to reduce a man’s risk of contracting AIDS from heterosexual sex by half, United States government health officials said yesterday, and the directors of the two largest funds for fighting the disease said they would consider paying for circumcisions in high-risk countries.

The announcement was made by officials of the National Institutes of Health as they halted two clinical trials, in Kenya and Uganda, on the ground that not offering circumcision to all the men taking part would be unethical. The success of the trials confirmed a study done last year in South Africa.

AIDS experts immediately hailed the finding. “This is very exciting news,” said Daniel Halperin, an H.I.V. specialist at the Harvard Center for Population and Development, who has argued that circumcision slows the spread of AIDS in the parts of Africa where it is common.

In an interview from Zimbabwe, he added, “I have no doubt that as word of this gets around, millions of African men will want to get circumcised, and that will save many lives.”

Uncircumcised men are thought to be more susceptible because the underside of the foreskin is rich in Langerhans cells, sentinel cells of the immune system, which attach easily to the human immunodeficiency virus, which causes AIDS. The foreskin also often suffers small tears during intercourse.
Yet another shred of evidence that highlights the medical benefits of a practice given to Western society by Judaism. Circumcision nay-sayers don't have a leg to stand on. It's a practice that has been repeatedly proven to have numerous health benefits.
