The Pope and the cardinals of the Vatican help organize
tours of Auschwitz for Hezbollah members to teach
them how to wipe out Jews, according to a booklet being
distributed to Israel Defense Forces soldiers. Officials
encouraging the booklet’s distribution include senior officers,
such as Lt. Col. Tamir Shalom, the commander of
the Nahshon Battalion of the Kfir Brigade. The booklet

Anwar, 15, can’t read or write, but says he’s good at tunnel
work. He needs a new job as Israeli planes bombed

London’s Conservative Mayor Boris Johnson has been
labelled “out of touch” with millions of Londoners after he
described the £250,000 he is paid for a weekly column in

“Yes, I’m fully prepared for this. I have concluded that the
wars [in Iraq and Afghanistan] are not going to be ended
by politicians or people at the top. They’re not responsive
to people, they’re responsive to corporate America. The
only way to make them responsive to the needs of the

there might have been a sigh of relief in the corporate
board rooms of Chiquita banana. Earlier this year the
Cincinnati-based fruit company joined Dole in criticizing
the government in Tegucigalpa which had raised the

labor reforms since the company produced around
8 million crates of pineapple and 22 million crates of
bananas per year
