Here's a cartoon that properly shows what happens when you use one of the 10-miles-per-gallon SUVs:
Americans and Westerners that use gas
guzzler SUVs directly contribute to the
funding of Islamic terrorists
I recently purchased the Toyota Prius, a hybrid car - the regular engine in combination with the electric motor allows me to get over 50 miles per gallon (for more information on the Toyota Prius click here).
It is extremely important that we do our best to stop financing the corrupt, racist and fascist regimes of Saudi Arabia, Iraq and other Arab/Muslim oil barons. The excellent website www.boycott-middle-east-oil.com has many articles that show how Saudi Arabia plays the double game: on the one hand it says it's our "friend", while on the other it deliberately finances Islamic fascists such as Al-Qaeda/Bin Laden, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Furthermore, Saudi Arabia completely ignores human, gay and women rights through its implementation of Shaariah (Islamic Law). Here some examples:
Saudis Made $200M Deal with Bin Laden!
There are many other examples. The bottom line is that we can make a difference. We can:
1) Reduce our consumption of oil by using a hybrid car, such as the Toyota Prius.
2) Stop our consumption of oil that comes from Saudi Arabia, Iraq and other fascist Islamic regimes.
I quote from www.boycott-middle-east-oil.com:
The power of the American public is stronger than ever. Even if these preferred stations are .04 cents more/gallon, you are only paying an extra dollar per fill-up. Just a small price to pay to hurt the pocket books of the terrorists.
Imagine now that instead of 10,000 Americans we have 100,000,000 Americans that use hybrid cars and don't buy oil from Saudi Arabia/Iraqi sources. In this case we would not be sending $100,400,000,000 (over 100 BILLION dollars) to the regimes that support Islamic terrorism PER YEAR!
I copy below the list of preferred gas stations: those that don't help Saudia Arabia finance Bin Laden and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area I have stopped filling up at Shell, Exxon and Chevron.
I now only fill up at "Union 76". Please take a minute to check the list below and stop buying oil from Saudi Arabia and Iraq: you'll be helping our efforts on the war on Islamic Terrorism.
The Telegraph (www.telegraph.co.uk) reports that a British MP has accused the J-E-W-S of convincing Tony Blair that a war with Iraq was necessary:
Tam Dalyell, the Father of the House, sparked outrage last night by accusing the Prime Minister of "being unduly influenced by a cabal of Jewish advisers".
Racist and intolerant bastard - it seems that some British Labour MPs have replaced the English skinheads in their hate of Jews.

Faces of the Victims has published the story of Ruth Peled, 56, grandmother of 4, and her granddaughter Sinai Kenan, a 14-month-old baby.
Ruth and Sinai, Grandmother and Granddaughter
Murdered by Palestinian Terrorists
They were both murdered by a Palestinian homicide/suicide bomber on 5/27 in the city if Petah Tikva, east of Tel-Aviv.
"The explosion ripped through the Em Hamoshavot commercial center at around 6:40 PM. Among the injured were many children, who were inside the cafe and a nearby ice-cream parlor. Police said the bomb used contained around 10 kilograms of explosives, packed with metal objects to maximize the number of casualties.
Lior and Chen Keinan had gone to buy ice cream with their infant daughter Sinai and Chen's mother, Ruth Peled, when the blast occurred. Ruth and Sinai were killed. The infant's parents were among the 37 injured in the attack."

The BBC has an article that describes how Ilan Ramon will become Israel's first astronaut and how he'll celebrate the Sabbath in space:
Ilan Ramon, Israel's first Astronaut
Israel's Science Ministry has said it is investigating ways to allow Colonel Ilan Ramon, the country's first astronaut, to cast his ballot [for the 2003 Israeli elections] aboard the space shuttle Columbia, scheduled to lift off on 16 January 2003.
To find out how Ilan Ramon will be able to celebrate Sabbath in space, see below. I also copy an information page on Ilan Ramon from Nasa's website.
Update 2/3/2003: Here are some related articles to the incredible stories of Ilan Ramon and Petr Ginz -
NASA sends first Israeli astronaut into space (1/16/03)
The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that a Palestinian homicide/suicide bomber deliberately blew himself up in a crowded mall in Kfar Saba, near Tel-Aviv:
A bomb went off Monday evening in the crowded Arim shopping center in the coastal town of Kfar Saba, apparently the work of a suicide bomber. Israel's Channel One Television reported that one Israeli was killed and 32 wounded in the attack, including two infants.
Update: I just saw on Israeli TV a Police captain describing the murder. Two Israelis were killed: one of the mall's security guards who managed to stop the Palestinian assassin from slaughtering more innocent people, and a 15-year-old kid. Both were new immigrants from Argentina.
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the Hamas, and Arafat's Al-Aksa brigades have deliberately murdered hundreds of unarmed Israelis since October 2000 when Yasser Arafat and his thugs rejected peace and started their war of terror against Israeli women and children.
For a list of all Palestinian homicide bombings, check out the Palestine page. For a partial list of victims of Palestinian terrorism, check out the Victims page.
I copy below an article that gives more information on the victims.
I have just sent an email to the moderator of a discussion group I participate in, strongly condemning his comparison of the murders of unarmed Israeli civilians with Israel's retaliatory steps.
The Palestinians deliberately kill unarmed Israeli civilians, including babies and children. Let there be no mistake about it: their goal is to kill and injure as many Israelis and Jews as possible. They are racist murderers whose goal is to destroy Israel. The only difference between Arafat and the Islamic Jihad/Hamas is that the later wish for an Islamic Palestinian State to replace Israel, while Arafat’s groups don’t incorporate the religious element (they still wish for Israel’s destruction).

Yasser TerrorFat cannot order Palestinian
children to murder Israeli children anymore
Mr. Arafat, also known by many as "Yasser TerrorFat", was a mass murderer, a liar, and a killer of children. He refused peace with Israel in October 2000 and stopped the Palestinians from getting a State of their own (click here for details). For these qualities he has earned the respect of the French, but the scorn and disgust of the civilized world.
Here's a partial list of terrorist operations Yasser TerrorFat was personally responsible for:
To understand Arafat's legacy, there is no better to place to start than the listings of Palestinian terrorist attacks in Israel since 1965 – or well before the Israelis took control of the West Bank and Gaza. Here is a listing of the some of the more prominent atrocities during Arafat's first decade of terrorism, first as the head of Fatah and then the PLO:
* Jan. 1, 1965: Fatah's first terror attack in Israel. (Other Palestinian armed groups had carried out many other terror attacks before this, however.)
* July 5, 1965: Fatah plant explosives at Mitzpe Massua, near Beit Guvrin; and on the railroad tracks to Jerusalem near Kafr Battir.
* 1965-67: A wave of Fatah bomb attacks target Israeli villages, water pipes, railroads. Homes are destroyed and Israelis are killed.
* Feb. 21, 1970: SwissAir flight 330, bound for Tel Aviv, is bombed by the PLO group PFLP in mid-flight, killing 47.
* May 21, 1970 PLO Shooting a Bazooka to the School bus of Moshav Avivim 10 kids plus 2 adult died, 24 wounded.
* Sept. 6, 1970: TWA, Pan Am, and BOAC airplanes are hijacked by the PLO.
* September 1970: The PLO attack Jordanian targets, then flee to Lebanon.
* Sept. 5, 1972: 11 Israeli athletes killed at the Munich Olympics by the PLO.
* March 1, 1973: Palestinian terrorists take over Saudi embassy in Khartoum and murder the United States' ambassador to Sudan, Cleo Noel and others.
* April 11, 1974: 18 residents of Kiryat Shmona in northern Israel are killed in their apartment building by the PLO who infiltrated from Lebanon.
* May 15, 1974: A school in Ma'alot is attacked by Palestinian terrorists who infiltrated from Lebanon. 26 Israelis, including many children, were killed.
Found the list on Dr. Pipes website at www.danielpipes.org. I copy the full article below (found the article on the excellent LGF), and I will be distributing candy to everyone I meet.
**May Yasser TerrorFat rot in hell surrounded by 72 virgins that look like him.**
Update: I have now added an excellent video from HonestReporting.com with shows how Yasser TerrorFat was an evil mass murdering bastard. See below for the details.
The FBI and many others continue to deny the fact that yesterday's shooting at Los Angeles airport was a terrorist attack.
As mentioned yesterday, the murderer, Mohamed Hadayet, a Muslim immigrant from Egypt, deliberately aimed, shot and killed two unarmed civilians. He specifically looked to kill Jews and Israelis, so whether he's part of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, or any other organized terrorist group is irrelevant. The deliberate killing of unarmed civilians is terrorism.
Stefan Sharkansky (Shark Blog), being helpful as always, has found the real explanation for yesterday's murder of a 20 year-old El Al clerk and a 46 year-old Israeli who just happened to be at the airport at the wrong time.
The man who shot to death two people at the LAX El Al counter has now been identified as an Egyptian national. Oddly, the FBI still maintains that there is no indication that this was an act of terrorism.
I copy the 10 reasons below.
CNN (www.cnn.com) has published a site that lists Israeli victims of Palestinian terrorism.
Last night on Israeli TV, CNN’s President gave an interview where he apologized for some of the mistakes CNN has made covering the Middle East.
This came after a lot of criticism on CNN last week: the parents of 5-year-old Gal Eizenman, killed in one of last week’s homicide bombings, had been interviewed by CNN, but when the story was shown, CNN decided not to show Gal’s parents but instead showed an interview with the mother of the homicide/suicide bomber! Gal’s mother (who also lost her mother in the attack) was interviewed on Israeli TV and told the whole story. For more information on Gal and her Grandmother, click here.
The latest site on Israeli victims of terror is probably a result of CNN trying to clear its image, particularly after Ted Turner said last week that Israel is involved in terrorism. The site is well done and covers victims since killed since January 1st 2002 - you may find it here
You may also want to check “Faces of the victims” which has been publishing the stories of the victims since October 2000 (when Arafat and his thugs decided to turn down the offer for a Palestinian State and decided to kill unarmed Israeli civilians instead, see the history page for details):
I copy CNN's introduction to the site below.
The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that some brainwashed Palestinian children wish to murder all Jews:
"We want to defend [Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser] Arafat and kill the Jews wherever they are," said 10-year-old schoolgirl Aysheh Muhammad as she gripped a poster of Arafat outside his battered office Sunday, chanting slogans in his support along with her classmates. [...]
Many times you'll hear that the Palestinians "have no choice" in their racism, hate, and mass murder of Israeli women and children. That's simply not true: they've had many occasions to choose peace and get an independent State of their own (click here for details).
Unfortunately their choice is clear: war and death. They'll get both.
I copy the full article below.
The Denver Post (www.denverpost.com) reports that a massive rally was held in London, England, in support of Bin Laden and Islam.
American visitors blanched at the sight: pro-al-Qaeda Islamists, who refuse to condemn the Sept. 11 attacks, rallying Sunday at Trafalgar Square
Here's one website that supports the above rally, www.rallyforislam.co.uk - here's their main message:
"We publically call the British public and the rest of the world to Islam, the fastest growing belief in the world. We openly challenge all forms of kufr (non-Islam) whether it be in the form of democracy, evolution, freedom, man-made law etc."
Say no more.
I copy the full article below.
The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that Palestinian terrorists from the Islamic Jihad and Hamas have fired another missile at an Israeli city, aiming for a kindergarten; this time they murderered one man and a 3-year-old child:
One killed after Kassam rockets land in Sderot
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hamas, and Arafat's Al-Aksa brigades reject any peace with Israel and call for her destruction and the genocide of her citizens; click here for more details, and click here for a list of homicide bombings executed by these Islamic fascists that have resulted in the death of over a thousand Israeli men, women, and children in the last couple of years.
The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that Israel has succeeded in wiping out the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) a communist terrorist group responsible for hundreds of attacks against unarmed civilians.
Earlier this week the IDF arrested another two of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine's top leaders in the West Bank.
Now that we've eliminated the threat from the PFLP, let's move on to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and then to Hamas and Al-Aqsa Brigade, Arafat's terrorist group (see the Palestine page for details).
