  2. LAHORE: Punjab police have arrested a man in Bahawalpur who did not bury his dead wife for 14 months 'out of love', a private TV channel reported on Tuesday.

  3. I have never seen Ay Khamenie in such a happy mood. I can predict K-Mashaal may accept Shia Islam, soon.

Salim Nassar: When Hitler carried out his massacres, it was not because he was against the Jews. He was told: It is either the Aryan or the Jewish race. So we chose the Aryan race. One must do justice to history.

  6. Tehran’s Mayor bestows honorary citizenship to Erdogan TEHRAN, Feb. 02 (ISNA)-Tehran’s Mayor in a symbolic move, bestowed honorary citizenship of Iran’s capital to Turkey’s Prime Minister to appreciate his walkout on Davos meeting. “Your courageous and wise move in response to nonsense of the occupying regime of Quds’ envoy in Davos meeting gladdened hearts of freedom-seekers and freethinkers of the world,” Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf wrote in a letter to Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The world’s public opinion admits the righteousness of the measure and Turkish nationals must take pride in such move while many claimants have kept silence towards Israel’s war crimes in Gaza, he added. “As Tehran’s Mayor, on behalf of citizens of this city, I take pride and while appreciating the valuable act which came following Turkey’s people move in support of Palestinian citizens, I pronounce you as Tehran’s honorary citizen.”
  7. BAGHDAD – A woman suspected of recruiting more than 80 female suicide bombers has been arrested, the Iraqi military said Tuesday, dealing a major blow to one of the most effective forms of attacks in Iraq. The woman, who was identified as Samira Ahmed Jassim or by her nickname "Umm al-Mumineen," was shown confessing in a video played for reporters at a press conference in Baghdad. Dressed in an all-encompassing black Islamic robe, she described how she would persuade the women to be bombers, then escort them to an orchard for insurgent training and finally pick them up and lead them to their targets. She said she was acting on behalf of insurgents based in the volatile Diyala province, north of Baghdad. Iraqi military spokesman Maj. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi said the suspect had recruited more than 80 women willing to carry out attacks and had admitted masterminding 28 bombings in different areas. The number of bombings carried out by women has spiked even as overall violence has declined, and U.S. commanders have warned insurgents are actively trying to find more recruits. At least 36 female suicide bombers attempted or successfully carried out 32 suicide attacks last year, compared with eight in 2007, according to U.S. military figures. The military said it couldn't provide information on the number of female suicide bombers so far this year. But there was at least one — a woman who blew herself up in the midst of Iranian pilgrims in Baghdad, killing more than three dozen people on Jan. 4. The use of female suicide bombers is part of a shift in insurgent tactics to avoid detection at U.S.-Iraqi military checkpoints that have become ubiquitous in Iraq as part of increased security measures. Iraqi women often are allowed to pass through male-guarded checkpoints without being searched, and they traditionally wear flowing black robes that make it easier to hide explosives belts. To counter the threat, the U.S. military has stepped up efforts to recruit women for the Iraqi security forces. Jassim, whose nickname means "the mother of believers," was arrested by Iraqi security forces acting on tips on Jan. 21 and is allegedly linked to the Ansar al-Sunnah insurgent group, al-Moussawi said. The spokesman would not say where Jassim was arrested because the investigation was ongoing. But he said the recruits had been from Baghdad and Diyala province. He also said she had contact with a pair of recently detained insurgent brothers. In the video, Jassim said she had to talk to one elderly woman several times before persuading her to blow herself up at a bus station. It also took Jassim two weeks to recruit another woman who was a teacher and had problems with her husband and his family, according to the confession. The woman eventually attacked members of government-backed Sunni groups in Diyala province, the suspect said. U.S. and Iraqi officials have pinned hopes on Saturday's provincial elections to more equitably distribute power among Iraq's fractured ethnic and sectarian groups and staunch support for the Sunni-led insurgency. Adnan al-Mufti, the current parliamentary speaker, said the minimum age for candidates for the 111-seat National Assembly was lowered from 30 to 25 "to give young people and women a larger chance for representation." ___ Associated Press writer Yahya Barzanji in Sulaimaniyah, Iraq, contributed to this report.
  8. Everybody asks about that first, but then no matter who they chose the same answer comes back: they voted on the issue of security. Almost everybody is saying “we want local officials who can achieve security first.” Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki seems to be the luckiest person in these elections because everybody is standing by him, even those who were once his enemies. Apathy was the reason singled out by Khalil al-Azawi, an adviser to Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi of the Iraqi Islamic Party. “I think the reason for the low turnout in this election is frustration among the people. They participated in the elections hoping that it improve things but the result was that things went backwards,” he said. “The other reason is a logistical one, which is the impossibility of reaching some polling centers for some people. The low turnout concerns us, as it would any other political party. Any party seeks a high turnout in order to increase its chances of winning.” This is democracy: 51% not voted due to frustration, Al-Maliki became the Hero of frustration, King of Cynicism and Mallak of Apathy.
  9. Libya wants to deport all Palestinians Libya wants to deport Palestinians to the Gaza Strip, to avoid their permanent settlement in Libya, and facilitate their right to return to the occupied territories. Libya’s Al-Jamahiriya daily said on Tuesday that Libya intended to expel the Palestinians from its territory to abort “the conspiracy of liquidating the Palestinian cause.” The state run newspaper said that if Palestinians stayed, then they would be giving up the right of return to their homes in return for Israel’s acceptance of the Beirut initiative. It said such a deal was aimed at “settling every Palestinian in the diaspora in the countries where they reside”. There are more than 4.5 million registered Palestinian refugees in Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The newspaper said the Libyan authorities will facilitate the return of Palestinians to the Gaza Strip through Egypt to “protect their identity”. The paper also urged Lebanon and Syria to allow more than 1.5 million Palestinian refugees they host to “return to Palestine and abort this conspiracy.” Make no mistake. The Arab governments have no love for the palestinians, just an appreciation of their worth as a political tool - whether it be as a demographic weapon against the Jewish state of Israel, or a great way to turn their peoples’ attention away from the corruption of their own regimes. And you can’t discount the possibility that these countries simply don’t want palestinians residing within their borders. You have to ask yourselves why there are still palestinian refugees after 60 years, along with the only permanent UN agency dedicated to refugees of any kind, while Jews expelled from Arab lands were quickly absorbed into Israel.
