The agreement, described as a "Partnership", involves a "Declaration of Intent" by the two governments. The Declaration was signed in Tel Aviv on March 23:
"Today, the Honourable Stockwell Day, Minister of Public Safety Canada and Avi Dicter, Minister of Public Security of the Government of the State of Israel, signed a Declaration of Intent to enhance cooperation in the area of public safety.
"All of the Palestinians must be killed; men, women, infants, and even their beasts." This was the religious opinion issued one week ago by Rabbi Yisrael Rosen, director of the Tsomet Institute, a long-established religious institute attended by students and soldiers in the Israeli settlements of the

What Professor Falk is doing is merely stating the obvious, and that's what has Israeli officials cringing and sputtering.

ORLANDO, Florida (AFP) - Pro golfer Tripp Isenhour, facing misdemeanor charges and possible jail time after hitting and killing a hawk that is protected by conservation laws, apologized on Thursday.
When EMI, Universal Music and Warner music reached settlement agreements with the likes of Napster, KaZaA and Bolt, they collected hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation - money that was supposed to go to artists whose rights had been allegedly infringed upon when the networks were operating with unlicensed music.
Now, according to an article, the managers of some major artists are getting very impatient, as it appears the very people who were supposed to be compensated - the artists - haven’t received anything from the massive settlements. They say the cash - estimated to be as much as $
Having failed to stop piracy by suing internet users, the music industry is for the first time seriously considering a file sharing surcharge that internet service providers would collect from users.
In recent months, some of the major labels have warmed to a pitch by Jim Griffin, one of the idea's chief proponents, to seek an extra fee on broadband connections and to use the money to compensate rights holders for music that's shared online.
A lawsuit that accuses the Recording Industry Association of
Warner Music Group has proposed a $5/month music tax to be charged by ISPs for 24-hour access to high-quality music downloads:
I have a couple problems with this.
First, this system means that people who are not downloading music are forced to pay for those who do. That's socialism.
Second, with everyone forced to pay the same flat fee, there is no incentive to produce better music. The owners of the mp3 servers will just load them up with whatever crap they can find at the lowest cost, along with the theme songs for whatever films and TV shows they are peddling at the moment. Musicians who write politically challenging songs will never get heard because there the mechanism for audiences to support them by choosing to buy their music has been removed.
With everyone forced to pay for the mp3 services, there is less money for people to spend on their local small bands.
Thanks a lot, music pirates; you've screwed us all.
Bombes à retardements cherche des réponses
En 1957, 40 soldats canadiens servaient de cobayes pour des expériences nucléaires.
Éric Ruel, originaire de Pincourt, et son équipe ont suivi trois vétérans qui vivent avec les séquelles inimaginables d’essais nucléaires et tentent de convaincre le gouvernement d’admettre ses erreurs et de l’offrir des excuses.
« C’est une opportunité de changer les choses. Il faut que ce dossier se règle. Ces hommes ne sont plus jeunes et ils veulent au moins mourir avec dignité », dit Eric Ruel.

Il y a près de dix ans, son équipe a découvert une coupure de journal sur les soldats envoyés au Nevada. Pas de détails, mais M. Ruel a commencé à mener une enquête sur cette « mission ».
La fin de semaine prochaine, le documentaire sera diffusé sur les ondes de Global et de Canal D. « Le gouvernement a peur de ce documentaire », dit M. Ruel.
En juillet 1957, près de quarante soldats canadiens sont conduits à

Ce n’est que de retour au Canada que les effets des rayons et les retombées radioactives se font sentir. Leucémies, cancers, troubles pulmonaires et cardiaques, arthrite virulente, les maux et maladies se multiplient chez ces soldats. Plusieurs femmes des soldats font des fausses couches, et certains enfants ont des malformations et des cancers. Près de 80 % des soldats sont maintenant morts ou souffrent de problèmes de santé. Malgré tout, l’histoire reste dans l’ombre.

"A central aspect of the interrogation phase, is the use of particular forms of torture and ill treatment," says DCI.

Apparently, this "democracy" tortures Palestinian kids to get them to confess to anything, then hauls them off for a prison sentence after the decree by a kangaroo court.
Please remember, as you're filling out your tax forms this April, that this "democracy" siphons off billions in taxpayer dollars, while US homeless veterans are sleeping in the streets.
Available quantity of fuel will allow Gaza's sole power plant to operate only Sunday, threatening to plunge the Gaza Strip into darkness Monday, unless Israeli deliveries of fuel are resumed to avert an imminent blackout as well as the exacerbation of the humanitarian crisis, which brought traffic to a standstill in the Israeli-besieged Gaza Strip.
What the world needs to do, immediately, is to cease any monetary or military assistance to
In a press statement received by the PIC, the ministry stated that ambulance service stopped transferring injuries and patients after fuel supplies were depleted and Palestinian doctors are unable to reach their work places because of lack of sufficient transport means, while patients in hospitals are surrounded by the specter of death.
Of course, these are precisely the outcomes
Can a bus driver miss seeing a 15 year old crossing a road on a donkey? The answer is yes if the child was a Palestinian and the driver was working for illegal settlers. The driver claims it was an accident.... but we know better.... IT WAS MURDER! There were witnesses.... all Palestinians.... Will their testemony be heard in a court of law? Again we know the answer...

LONDON, England (AP) -- Jacqui Smith's estimate came as she argued for an extension of the time authorities are allowed to hold terror suspects without charge.
"We now face a threat level that is severe. It's not getting any less, it's actually growing," Smith wrote in the editorial to be printed in The News of The World tabloid. "There are 2,000 individuals (police and security agencies) are monitoring. There are 200 networks. There are 30 active plots."
