Hitler Is Open For Business

-Mumbai's "Hitler" eatery angers Indian Jews
A new restaurant in India's financial hub, named after Adolf Hitler and promoted with posters showing the German leader and Nazi swastikas, has infuriated the country's small Jewish community.

'Hitler's Cross', which opened last week, serves up a wide range of continental fare and a big helping of controversy, thanks to a name the owners say they chose to stand out among hundreds of Mumbai eateries.

"We wanted to be different. This is one name that will stay in people's minds," owner Punit Shablok told Reuters.

"We are not promoting Hitler. But we want to tell people we are different in the way he was different."

-It seems that high-tech night vision goggles send from Britain has instead gone to Hezbollah.
[...]Except that this time, the British government didn’t stop the terrorists, but aided them, even if perhaps through pure negligence and stupidity; and in this case, instead of saving hundreds or thousands of civilians from being blown up in mid-air, it allowed the provision of vital tactical equipment that made it possible for Hizbollah to kill several Israeli soldiers in Lebanon during the last month of fighting there, and has possibly also been used by other Iranian-backed insurgents in killing British soldiers in Iraq.

The equipment in question was night vision goggles, an essential bit of kit that gives soldiers a major advantage in night fighting, and which terrorists or irregular combatants usually have rather less of. But they didn’t end up in Hizbollah’s hands thanks to an error in stopping the flow of funds to Hizbollah -- something that is turning out to be more or less impossible -- but because Britain deliberately sold them to Iran.

-Haaretz now has the full text of the Reservists petition to the government.

-Sydney, Australia is now seeing a new outbreak of racial and religious violence.
AN outbreak of racial violence is deeply dividing Sydney, with authorities alarmed by a dramatic surge in attacks.

The worst have been directed at Jewish Australians in the wake of the Middle East war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon, with the slogan "Kill Jews" spray-painted around Sydney.

The Daily Telegraph has learned attacks at Sydney University have forced Jewish students to hide religious skullcaps under baseball caps after several were spat on and assaulted.

There is evidence tensions have increased since last December's Cronulla race riots.

Reports to the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board have jumped and interest in groups supporting a return to a White Australia policy has skyrocketed.

-Earl Wilson writes how the UN is actually a threat to peace. No surprises there.
The UN plays a bigger role in our lives than many of us realize. Although some believe that the UN is ineffective, it is rather all too effective. Not at making peace, of course. But at making war or creating the conditions for war. The sinister role played by UN secretary-general Kofi Annan in stopping Israel's war against the Hizbullah, an instrument of Nazi-like Iran and Syria, is a case in point. The UN Security Council, prodded by Annan, voted for a cease fire, which is what the Hizbullah and Iran and Syria wanted in order to stop Israel from wrecking the Hizbullah's military and terrorist capabilities. Annan is a black-face version of the peacemongering, white-faced pro-Nazi secretaries who preceded him. Except for Trygve Lie in the UN's early years, the secretaries-general have been anti-Israel. Kurt Waldheim, secretary-general in the late 1970s-early 1980s was in fact a Nazi war criminal who took part in massacres in the Balkans, including former Yugoslavia.
