    HOW ABOUT RELIGIOUS FREEDOM and INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY? ..."Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft praised Germany's new law that allows authorities to ban religious organizations used as fronts for extremists, saying Friday it was a necessary measure in the war on terrorism... Interior Minister Otto Schily made quick use of the new law, on Wednesday banning an Islamic organization he accused of being a "breeding ground for terrorists," and saying the legislation could lead to the expulsion of many extremists who have been granted asylum in Germany.

    So can I define the Jehovah's Witnesses and telemarketers who invade my home uninvited disturbing my world as terrorists? How about other people I don't like or agree with. If I was powerful enough to do it I guess that is allowed now. What do you think?

    WOULDN'T ..."plan a giveaway of "billions of dollars to multinational corporations--almost $2.5 billion to IBM, General Electric and Enron alone..." and say it is because we, "Now we need to act boldly to protect America's economic security," as President Bush has said. Looks like it will be a Merry Christmas for his friends in the boardrooms of America.

    WOULDN'T ...give my support to, the United States improving relations with the Islamic world, by "...becoming more committed to rebuilding countries and less committed to Israel..." but I WOULD give my support, " provide some sort of neo-Marshall Plan," (as) Ki-June Park, a Lawrence-based international business consultant, said, referring to the post-World War II plan to rebuild European countries. "I think we have to go beyond dropping food. We have to rebuild their mosques, we have to do the things to win their hearts. "It would be a great investment. Look at what the Marshall Plan did. Japan and Germany were our archenemies and now they are our closest friends. We never expect a war with them again."

    So it is about power after all...
    "...A Justice Department proposal would eliminate the chief legal safeguard in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). A CIA proposal seeks legal authority to gather telephone and Internet records from domestic communication companies... The still-secret proposals would build upon and expand new intelligence-gathering powers that were granted to the FBI and the CIA under the U.S.A. Patriot Act. Signed into law Oct. 26, that anti-terrorism bill laid the foundation for a larger and more powerful domestic intelligence-gathering system..." - Source: The Washington Post [full text]

    Emporia student tests tolerance by donning veil...
    The Associated Press
    Emporia, Kansas, USA Kaila Williams wanted to see what it was like to be an Arab in Emporia. So she bought some cloth, which she fashioned into a robe and veil. Then she darkened her face with makeup and headed to Wal-Mart. Kaila, 17, strolled through the store for about an hour. Her father stayed nearby, just in case. At first, things looked promising. The Wal-Mart greeter smiled at her as she walked in. In fact, she said, the staff generally treated her well, if they noticed her at all.
    The customers were something else. [full text]
