Sheikh Salah entered Britain last weekend entirely openly and legally on an Israeli passport. Now suddenly, the government apparently believes that the Sheikh’s deportation would be “conducive to the public good.” He is now in a detention centre pending legal moves, instead of spending Wednesday evening addressing a large public meeting in the House of Commons.

At Tahrim 6. O you who believe! Ward off from yourselves and your families a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who disobey not, (from executing) the Commands they receive from Allah, but do that which they are commanded.

Abu Saif was a soldier in the Saudi Arabian Army. One day his mother was sitting
at home and she saw the news on the television reporting the genocide of the
Muslims in Bosnia. When she saw this she said to Abu Saif, "My son get up and
go! Look what they are doing, they are raping our sisters and killing our brothers.
My son get and go and I don't want to see you again!"

The arrest late on Tuesday night in London of Sheikh Raed Salah is a very strange business. The political leader of the Islamic Movement in Israel, who has three times been elected as Mayor of his town, Umm al Fahm, has visited Britain without problems before, and his programme this time – including two engagements in the House of Commons - was public knowledge well before his arrival. No objection was made by any UK government agency.

|Twin blasts kill dozens near Baghdad|
Successive explosions kill at least 35 and injure 28 others outside an Iraqi government building in the town of Taji.
Last Modified: 05 Jul 2011 10:10
A parked car bomb exploded on Tuesday morning, quickly followed by another blast, as visitors were entering the building in the town of Taji, about 20km north of the Iraqi capital.
"As people gathered to take a look at the explosion, a secondary explosion took place, this believed to be another [car] bomb parked nearby," Al Jazeera's Rawya Rageh reported from Basra.
"The place was crowded with people who were going to process official papers and with police and employees," Raad al-Tamimi, the head of the Taji municipality, said.
"It was awful ... some of the lightly wounded people were running in all directions, either crying or screaming for help,'' a policeman who identified himself only by his nickname, Abu Haider, said at the scene. He said he was not authorised to give his full name.
Witnesses said burnt human bodies, some of them women, were lying on the ground and that about 20 cars were on fire.
The government blames the Iraqi branch of Al Qaeda for Tuesday’s blasts.
There has been a pattern of attacks targeting provincial council buildings in recent months, Rageh reported.
"These are clearly part of some sort of campaign targeting provincial and local governments, perhaps an attempt to increase anger at the central government for failing to protect these local municipalities," she explained.
Green Zone attack
Earlier on Tuesday, Iraqi officials reported a late night rocket attack on Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone, which they said killed four and wounded 10.
A doctor at a nearby hospital, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to release the information, confirmed the casualities.
The sprawling Green Zone houses the Iraqi government headquarters, as well as the US and British embassies. It is a regular target for mortar and Katyusha attacks by fighters.
On Monday, armed rebels in a speeding car killed a man near his house in the town of Rashad, near Kirkuk.
Two roadside bombs planted in front of a police officer's house blew up late on Monday in Haswa, 50km south of Baghdad. The first caused no casualties but the second exploded after police arrived at the scene, killing the homeowner and wounding two other officers.
Also late on Monday, gunmen shot dead a police officer near his house in the town of Mussayab, about 60km south of Baghdad.
This week's violence comes after June saw the highest monthly death toll of Iraqis so far in 2011. A total of 271 people were killed in June attacks, according to government figures.

This is the rare footage of the so-called “settler-zombie,” known to roam West Bank roads in pursuit of Palestinians, peace activists or other "creatures" who convey certain amounts of "godlessness."
The “settler-zombie”, until today considered an urban legend of sorts, is comparable to “Big Foot”, “Golem” or the Loch Ness monster “Nessie”. According to most accounts, the “settler-zombie” also tires out quite quickly, most probably due to a bad diet and lack of exercise.
The creature in the footage above, harassing a left winger at Susiya junction in the West Bank, seems to fit the description.
Finally, in January 1917, Woodrow Wilson decided to withdraw all American troops from Mexico. Even though they had gone in with a huge display of power, the fact that Villa had evaded them for so long gave him almost mythical status among all Mexicans and even some Americans. The clear imbalance between the size of the pursuer and the size of the pursued resulted in the exact opposite of what the Americans had set out to do: it made Pancho Villa more popular than ever, making it utterly irrelevant whether he was eventually captured or killed ...
