Of Snakes and TerrorismWritten by Maureen Metcalf

identified leader to fill gap, he would be certain to further his agenda of terrorism, hoping most of it would be channeled toward Christians, Jews, and especially nation of Israel! What is not known, is whether next generation of bred and groomed terrorist serpents will act predictably, emulating Arafat's pattern of behavior, or whether they will exercise their own wiley intellects to become more deadly through deception. Remember Eve was deceived by serpent, and whole world is still living with consequences! Serpentine deception was absolutely effective in her day, and still is!! Beware! Examine even apparent "moderates" carefully. Jews and Christians are still prey and targets as long as even one deadly serpent remains unidentified to roam earth. And Israel can still be "bitten!" Rejoice, but do not celebrate! Evil still lurks in grass. Sincerely, Maureen Metcalf Along with above, I would like to mention following: It is a known fact that folk often present memory of departed in a glowing respectable light. This is an attempt to bring some positive closure and comfort to those who were close to deceased. However, such falls short of reality when it comes to Arafat. It appears dignitaries from many nations who attended his funeral in Egypt, tried to cast a sympathetic shadow over Arafat, choosing to ignore his atrocities, capitalizing instead on his apparently noble struggles on behalf of Palestinian people, as if he were a misunderstood champion of freedom and peace. Nothing could be further from truth! The nations are kidding themselves by attempting to cause masses to believe lie that Arafat was really a good guy! Anyone who swallows their twisting of truth, is opening themselves up to further misconceptions and manipulation. If a man committed murder, and/or incited, trained, armed, and funded others to plot and carry out atrocities against innocent, unarmed civilians, that man was a criminal!! A monster! How it was remotely possible for Arafat to have been awarded Nobel Laureate for Peace is incredulous! Even post-humously, this award should be stripped from Yasser Arafat's legacy! The record of his "achievements" and ‘exploits" indicate he was embodiment of opposite of peace and human decency! If Arafat is being hailed as Father of Palestinian people and future nation, then he was not a very considerate "Father!" In fact, he was abusive! He claimed Palestinians were in need of humanitarian aid, but when that aid was sent by honestly well-meaning agencies and governments, he squirreled it away in such a manner that it is now difficult to separate out humanitarian funds from his own obviously massive fortune, or from funds illegally acquired to support terrorism, leaving many of his own Palestinian "family"still impoverished. Since no one knew what he was doing with money, he used deceptive leverage to claim poverty to gain even more millions! In other words, like his friend, Saddam Hussein, he withheld funds and aid from his own people so he could use their "plight" as a bargaining chip to hoodwink and fleece other nations. He took advantage of their good will! He used Palestinians for his own ends, to further his own agenda, all while allowing them to believe he had their best interest at heart! They ought to be decrying him for that! What loving father withholds help from his own family, especially when funds are ear-marked specifically to help him care for their needs? This is despicable! But then, we also must remember, he is considered to be "Father" of international terrorism, and he obviously took much of these humanitarian funds, and applied them to his terrorist agenda. As such, it seems he had no qualms about practicing humanitarian terror against innocent Palestinian families! All Yasser Arafat's assets and accounts should be seized, analyzed by an impartial third party with expertise in international financial affairs, then every last penny (except for what his wife and daughter really need) distributed directly to each Palestinian family according to their needs. And, use of these funds should be continually monitored to make certain they do not directly, or even indirectly, support terrorism. In fact, a great portion of his funds should be channeled into agencies which will assist victims of his atrocities, especially Israelis who have been maimed and bereaved, or need rehabilitation or re-training! Should Arafat be celebrated? Nope!! Not by nations, and certainly not by Palestinians!

John Kerry Won the Election... Or so Says Harvard UniversityWritten by Gary R. Hess
Continued from page 1
If you watched election during 2004 race, you would have noticed huge difference between exit polls and actual vote tally. This is reason. During exit polls every vote is counted no matter if you are white, black, man or woman. But with actual vote tally only minority voters vote that counts are ones who live in a white neighborhood.
Does this mean that democrats could easily ask for a re-count? Yes, problem is most of machines used in Ohio were voting machines -- which did not give out receipts. Also Secretary of State Katherine Harris would have to agree to recount, which she would not do because she was one who excluded more than 179,855 votes.
So what is next for Democrats? I don't know, but something has to be done with Civil Rights in this "great" country of ours.
