HALIFAX, Nova Scotia -- President Bush yesterday challenged international leaders to create a new world order, declaring pre-September 11 multilateralism outmoded and asserting that freedom from terrorism will come only through pre-emptive action against enemies of democracy.
Intrusive Airport Searches: Screeners Authorized to "Pat Down" Private Parts
Thanksgiving travelers may be in for a bit of a shock as they plod through security lines at nation's airports. Passengers chosen for secondary screening or whose clothing appears suspicious or bulky are now subject to frisking--in a pretty intrusive way. In late September, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) began allowing security checkpoint screeners to manually pat down women's breasts and the genital and derriere regions of both sexes during searches. The point is to find hidden explosives while machines that might perform the job are still being tested. "I know it's not pleasant," says Rep. John Mica, chairman of the House aviation subcommittee, "but until we get the technology, what are the options?"
The new policy reflects an increasing sense of urgency about the lack of explosives-detection equipment. Today, only a small percentage of carry-on luggage and passengers is tested for bombs. In its final report, the 9/11 commission said the TSA must give "priority attention" to checking passengers for explosives. In August, two Russian airliners crashed, almost certainly because of explosives two Chechen women had concealed beneath their clothing--underscoring the danger.
Complaints. The TSA policy says that passengers can request that the new screening be done in a private room and requires that the frisker be the same gender as the traveler. But graduate student Sommer Gentry, 27, says that male screeners at Boston's Logan International Airport tried to pat her down while a female screener at Baltimore-Washington International Airport roughly jabbed a metal-detector wand between her legs. "How can I feel safe," Gentry said, " when the TSA is ordering me to let strangers put their hands all over my most intimate places?" TSA spokesman Mark Hatfield says the new policy generates only about a dozen complaints a week, but there have been reports of passengers, mostly women, growing angry during searches.
The TSA is currently testing machines that could eliminate the need for such frisking, like "trace portals" that blow puffs of air at passengers to dislodge and sniff for bits of explosive material. But it will be a while before the machines are ready for widespread use. In the meantime, the TSA will continue the pat-downs and train screeners to explain the process more carefully. "These are very valid security measures," says Hatfield. "They get at a very specific potential threat." But that's not enough for Gentry. "I am now," she says, "an ex-frequent flier." -Samantha Levine
Terrorists Focus on Foreign Exchange Rates & The Price of Gold
Terrorists Are Economy Conscious
28 November 2004: Last April,issue #15 of Voice of Jihad focused on the precious metals market. That issue, which featured stacks of gold and silver coins on the cover (pictured at left), included specific information as to what was projected to happen in the near and long term with gold and silver prices.
It specified that there would be a serious drop in prices of gold and silver, and even projected where the basement would be. The author of that article in the Voice of Jihad also advised those interested in the market to buy at those prices, but not to panic because the prices would rebound in short order.
We watched with some amazement as the markets did exactly as Voice of Jihad indicated they would. The prices of silver and gold dropped dramatically, and then leveled out. Then they began to slowly climb. In recent weeks, however, the prices have skyrocketed.
This is contemporaneous with a serious devaluation of the dollar against most European currencies. In fact, if you review the charts, you’ll see that the price of gold has increased 15% in US Dollars but only 4-5% in most other major currencies.
Today, the Arabic forums used by the “jihad warriors” are predicting a collapse of the US dollar. The following message was just posted on a popular and much-frequented Arabic message board; although it is one of the shorter messages, it provides a very specific prediction:
By Allah, you should understand with prayer that the acceleration of the collapse of the dollar will continue to hasten. God willing, on Monday 29/11/2004 a major collapse. By Allah, and congratulations to you
Another posting on the same forum, by a long-time poster using the translated name “Beginnings” seems to agree.
“Beginning’s” posted a message with the title “The Official Bankruptcy Of America, And With It Will Be Two Gulf Countries, With No Advance Warning”.
The post states:
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
As you watch the American economy has collapsed from its peaks, and there is no possible remedy for its collapse any longer.
The only cure that America, the bully of the age, possesses is the occupation of some of the Arab regimes, the source of its oil, and to put its hands on their accounts in the banks. But this does not solve the matter and now they have reached the stage of blackmailing nations under the pretext of eliminating the Iraqi debt, or at least part of it. It is not possible for the debts to be repaid by the Americans today.
They called Paris, and under pressure from the Americans, it agreed to drop 80% of the debt of Iraq, reaching a total of 38 billion dollars.
Saudi Arabia: They control everything about the oil except the number of barrels and they allow America to control that until they solve their problems in Iraq, and resolve the problems of their collapsed economy and its burning dollars. As for the money of the nation that has been stolen, America has had its hands on it since the beginning of the invasion with one threat after another, and has forced the Salool to remain silent, and content, telling them that they may be losing the money but that their reign is not ending.
Kuwait: They have lost all and what for? Compensation for the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, but those funds were deposited in US funds in an American bank in an account in New York and that these were conditional upon removing Saddam Hussein’s regime and the appointment of a regime that collaborates with the Americans.
The oil is permitted to be the King of America, resulting in the Iraq invasion, and they have no supervision or control or oversight to the nation’s thievery.
Iraq’s debts are estimated to be 16 billion US Dollars, and America has ordered that 80% of this be forgiven, fulfilling the truth of the compensation that America expects from Kuwait, for returning the casualties and the damaged done by Iraq.
The Kuwaiti Foreign Minister agreed to the American proposal within any study, and without presenting it to the National Assembly due to the holiday.
But the National Assembly rejected the decision calling it an American burglary of their money. They said that the current Iraqi government does not represent Iraq and that postponement is necessary for them until such time as a legitimate government can be put in place after peaceful elections.
The most important currencies are the dollar, the Euro, the Sterling, and the Yen. The rise of the gold prices is such that gold is now 460 dollars an ounce; but this results in a 10% decline in the ratio to the Kuwaiti dinar after the collapse of the price of the dollar.
According to a report on the Hebrew channel, many of the Saudi companies have been hit with very big losses as the dollar as collapsed, estimated to be 300 millions rials to date, and a major portion of those losses were taken by the pharmaceutical companies.
In Kuwait, money has started to escape to many other countries in the world, and this has become important in the daily economic movement, as funds are deposited, and withdrawn and transferred; the markets were seriously damaged by a slowdown. The only enterprises that have flourished offered services to the American army in Iraq; but this was hit hard by the Iraqi resistance in the destruction of the carriers and trucks that transport the food and fuel.
The collapse of the older tyrant economically is visible in the signs that appear, and for these nations, they no nothing but the number of barrels produced and what wealth they possess without any problems in the councils.
The time has come, as your Lord that you worship has said, for the death and complete destruction; remain with the dollar and you will be caught in its orbit until it collapsed in a mass destruction.
Jewish Dominance Of America - Facts Are Facts By Jonathan Silverman 11-21-4
Today, Jews control vast areas of wealth in America. Estimates range all the way up to 70%. Whatever the figure, it is huge and immensely out of proportion to their 2% of the population in American society. Today, in 1999, the U.S.A. is totally dominated by Jews. Virtually every newspaper or magazine is owned by Jews. Their self-serving propaganda constantly fills the TV screen. The Federal government is totally under Jewish control. US military forces are the pawn of Israel. The banks, the markets are theirs. They systematically denigrate our Founding Fathers and our heritage and our Constitution. Certainly, many non-Zionist Jews of America are waking up to the political and other manipulations they and most Jews are being controlled and influenced by.

I am a 23-year-old American living in Spain - disconnected both geographically and culturally, and at times politically and even emotionally. But not any more. This presidential election hit too close to home.
It is clear to me living in Europe that there is no coalition with America in any way, shape or form. President George W. Bush and his supporters appear to be the only ones not to realize it.
And this sad fact is taking its toll. Being an American abroad no longer means what it used to. I had spent time in Spain and Europe before 9/11 and before the invasion of Iraq. It would be a lie to say there is no difference in how the world views Americans since Bush has assumed the presidency, and more specifically since he invaded Iraq. Big changes have occurred.
People no longer are intrigued to meet us, or curious about what the American Dream is about. I am no longer peppered with questions about Big Macs, skyscrapers, Woody Allen films, rap music and guns. Now they ask why we are in Iraq.
Instead of the respect and awe many Europeans had for us, now they shockingly ask whether Americans are able to understand how some of the world may have felt that justice was served in some morbid, bittersweet way when the Twin Towers burned that 11th of September. The heartfelt sympathy they felt for us immediately after 9/11 has eroded since Bush's unilateral invasion of a sovereign nation, and has led some to conclude that America is paying for its arrogance.
No, we are not loved in Europe. We are not any longer seen as the leaders of the free world, but as its oppressors. In light of Bush's arrogance in international affairs, who could really blame them?
I have never before felt the embarrassment I now feel when I am asked where I am from. And I have a feeling that most Americans living abroad would say the same thing.
What the United States of America is headed for and why. - Nov.15
Woe to you, O destroyer, you who were not yourself destroyed, who deal treacherously though they [your victims] did not deal treacherously with you! When you have ceased to destroy, you will be destroyed; and when you have stopped dealing treacherously, they will deal treacherously with you. Isaiah 33:1 Amplified version
And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. Revelation 13:3
This last verse from the Bible book of Revelation, is depicting the time immediately before the the great beast of Revelation comes to it's full zenith of power.The time when what is known as the "NEW World Order" will be installed and set in full operation and come to life.It is a time when all will be compelled, at the threat of death to bow down to and obey this global government, pictured as the eighth king of Revelation.
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.If any man have an ear, let him ear.Revelation 13:7-9.- and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.Rev.13:15.
The heads of the beast represent dominant military world powers throughout history, beginning with Egypt. The last head and seventh ,which has two horns, representing the dominant power of today, namely, Britain- America, is undoubtedly the one who recieves this deadly wound, also called a wound by the sword in verse 14.Out of this great earth shattering disaster and historical happening will emerge the "New World Order", so often discussed by politician and journalist.
All current events bear out this scenario. Those in power have told us repeatedly, "it is not a question of if, but when". Remember these words?...Gen. Tommy Franks says that if the United States is hit with a weapon of mass destruction that inflicts large casualties, the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government. http://www.newsmax.com/archives/articles/2003/11/20/185048.shtml
Imagine this scenario...A swat team shows up in a troubled neighborhood, and surrounds a house they believe is a crack house.The owner of the house insists there are no drugs in the house.The team begins a search. But before the search is completed,and while yet finding no crack, the owner of the house is taken to jail, and his house is confiscated. After a more thorough search is conducted, still no drugs are found, but the house is not returned to it's owner, nor is he let out of jail. Essentially this is what happened in Iraq, but with much, much, more dire consequences to the innocent lives of those who call Iraq their home.
What influence does this have on the minds Americans? Well, alot of people think, if it's right for the president, it is also right for me.Corruption often starts at the top, giving a liscence for all to follow. How can it be said that Bush won on moral grounds?The so-called patiotism that says "my country right or wrong "is not moral. For moral people wrong is ALWAYS wrong. Not admitting a mistake and pushing ahead and continuing in it is morally MORONIC ; a type of suicide, that when it finally hits the wall of Justice will crumble. The humpty dumpty scenario.The whole world sees it plainly, yet much of American remains blind. And the consequences will be painful.
Former CIA analyst Michael Scheuer told CBS's 60 Minutes last night ,that George Bush's actions in Iraq and the enourmous amount of civilian lives lost there has brought the moslem world together like never before in their unified hatred of the United States.Instead of winning the war on terrorism, Bush has tremendously added to the numbers of potential terrorists. Is this just a case of gross stupidity? Or do those in power know that the U.S. must suffer an even greater act of terrorism, before their long hoped for "New World Order" can begin it's operation? It is hard to imagine such bafoonery, and yet it may be in line with Bush's personality. It appears the U.S.A. is hell-bend on it's own course of destruction. Isn't alcoholism really the same thing?A form of suicide? A strange personality indeed, but nevertheless existing in countless numbers of human beings.
I think it is very clear and very plain what America is headed for, even to the policy makers. It is amazing to me and also wonderful how God,who is "Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times [the things] that are not [yet] done." Isa 46:10 has already told us our future,so long ago, and the events in this world that will soon follow.
My prayers are with you all who have eyes to see.
U.S. Presbyterians warned to change 'anti-Israel' stance
NEW YORK - Special safety precautions were taken in Presbyterian churches throughout the United States on Sunday after leaders received threats that churches would be burned by Monday if they did not demand a reversal of what a letter writer called their "anti-Israel" policy.
The Presbyterian church decided in June to divest itself of companies doing business with Israel.
The threats were contained in an anonymous letter received last weekend at the denomination's headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky. The letter, postmarked Queens, New York, threatened that in response to the church's "anti-Israel and anti-Jewish" stance, its houses of worship and offices would be set on fire.
Jerry Van Marter, a church leader, said Sunday that the letter cited Monday as the day by which its authors were to demand the church change its policies on Israel. "We take the threat seriously," Van Meter said.
Relations between the Presbyterian church and the U.S. Jewish community and Israel soured after the June decision. Van Marter admitted Sunday that since the decision was made, thousands of letters and e-mails protesting it have been received
New Bill in Congress Targets Teachers Who Dare to Question US Support for Israel By Michael Collins Piper The Israeli lobby has launched an all-out drive to ensure congressional passage of a bill, approved by the House and now before a Senate committee that would set up a federal tribunal to investigate and monitor criticism of Israel on American college campuses. Ten months ago the New York-based Jewish Week newspaper claimed that the report by American Free Press that Republican members of the Senate were planning to crack down on college and university professors who were critical of Israel was “a dangerous urban legend at best, deliberate disinformation at worst.” They were claiming that AFP lied.
However, on Sept. 17, 2003, the House Subcommittee on Select Education unanimously approved H.R. 3077, the International Studies in Higher Education Act, which was then passed by the full House on Oct. 21. The chief sponsor of the legislation was Rep. Peter Hoekstra, a conservative Republican from Michigan.Full story- http://www.americanfreepress.net/03_19_04/New_Bill_/new_bill_.html
The Zionists claim that they are the savers of Israel, but this is refuted by twelve things.
- If one contemplates the two thousand years of our exile, take any hundred years even the hardest, one will not find as much suffering, bloodshed, and catastrophes for the People of Israel as in the period of the Zionists. And it is known that most of the suffering of this century was caused by the Zionists as our Rabbis warned us would be the case.
- It is openly stated in the books written by the founders of Zionism that the means by which they planned to establish a state was by instigating anti-Semitism, and undermining the security of the Jews in all the lands of the world, until they would be forced to flee to their state. And thus they did. They intentionally infuriated the German people and fanned the flames of Nazi hatred, and then helped the Nazis, with trickery and deceit, to take whole Jewish communities off to the concentration camps, and the Zionists themselves admit this. (See books Perfidy, Min Ha Meitsor, etc.). The Zionists continue to practice this strategy today, they incite anti-Semitism and then they present themselves as the "saviors". Here are two replies given by leaders of the Zionists during World War II, when they were asked for money to help ransom Jews from the Nazis. Greenbaum said "One cow in Palestine is worth more than all the Jews in Poland." (G-d Forbid). Weitzman said, The most important part of the Jewish people is already in the land (of Israel) and those who are left, are unimportant (May we be spared).
- We see that most of the world Jewry, lives in security under good physical conditions, and have no desire to go live in the Zionist state. Whereas many people have left the Zionist state to live under better conditions in other lands.
- The Zionists make a great deal of propaganda to induce people to immigrate too their state. If their state is so beneficial why do they have to make so much propaganda.
- Because nobody wants the Zionists to "Save them". The only way they can get immigrants is by promising poor people material benefits. And even then very few people respond.
- The Zionist state is always threatened by the dangers of war. Whereas the rest of world Jewry lives in peace and security. (Except in a few places where the Zionists have undermined their security and fanned the flames of hatred)
- The Zionist state could not continue to exist without economic support from Jews living outside of the Zionist state.
- The Zionist state is on the verge of economic collapse, and their money is nearly worthless.
The Zionist state persecutes all Jews who are loyal to their faith.
- They start wars that endanger the Jewish People, for the sake of their own political interests.
- According to the Torah the path of safety is following ways of peace not starting fights with other nations, as the Zionists do.
- Even if the Zionists could and would provide physical security it would be at the expense of our Faith and Our Torah. And the true People of Israel prefer death rather than life at such a cost. It is therefore clear that Zionism is not the savior of the people of Israel. Rather it is their greatest misfortune.

Bush’s New Anti-Semitism Law May Criminalize Thought -So who reigns over the kings of the earth?
A tip of the hat to the Department of State, which had the guts and good sense to express its opposition (sort of) to congressional legislation creating an office for monitoring "anti-Semitism."
The bill passed both houses of Congress by voice vote and was signed into law by President Bush last week.
It's a very silly and dangerous measure.
The bill did , of course, pass Congress because there was such a massive groundswell of grassroots support for it. It passed because Jewish organizations demanded it, and no sitting politician wants to get on the wrong side of these groups.
Pushed by the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith and most other major Jewish organizations, the bill requires the Department to record acts of physical violence against Jews, their property, cemeteries and places of worship abroad, and the response of local governments to them.As press reports noted, "among the attacks that prompted passage of the bill" was "the recent claim by former Malaysian prime minister Mahathir Mohamad that Jews 'rule the world by proxy.'"
That's the sort of stuff the State Department will now have to record and report about?
Last year the British Parliament debated a bill that would have allowed British citizens to be extradited to European Union countries to stand trial for expressing "xenophobia and racism" if the expressions were broadcast into countries where they are illegal, as in several European countries they are. It didn't pass, and the law just enacted doesn't do that, but all of it is part of the same pattern.
What really drives the crusade to criminalize thought and expression is not any legitimate revulsion against real violence (which is already illegal) but the compulsion of powerful and well-organized lobbies to muzzle criticism
