All the News that's Fit to Print

From a New York Times article dated 9 January 2007 -

"In Geneva, the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees announced an emergency appeal today for what it said were an estimated 3.7 million Iraqis who had been displaced internally or had fled abroad as a result of the fighting.

The agency said that about 1 in 8 Iraqis had left their homes, in what it called “the largest population movement in the Middle East since Palestinians were displaced following the creation of the state of Israel in 1948.”

“There is currently no end in sight” to the Iraqi exodus, the agency’s statement said.

John O’Neil contributed reporting from New York."

Since the Palestine Mandate had 1.8 million total population in 1948 this is about what one expects from the UN and from the NYT.

    When Bill Clinton first proposed allowing gays to serve in the military, he was totally amazed at the negative and hostile reaction he got from his generals. One his aides who was gay came to him and said "I don't think you realize how much they hate us." The same can be said about many "liberal" gentiles in regards to Jews.

    Want a fair shake? Ain't gonna happen.
