Front Page: Indonesia Sentences Militant, PA Votes, Carter and Hamas

Indonesia Sentences Militant: An Indonesian court has sentenced Abu Dujana, a suspected military commander of an al Qaeda-linked terror network, to 15 years in prison. He is thought to be leader of the military wing of Jemaah Islamiyah, a group with ties to al Qaeda with an aim to turn Southeast Asia into a Muslim "superstate." The court found Dujana guilty today of illegally possessing firearms and explosives, and of harboring suspected terrorists. He's also thought to have had direct involvement in the Bali nightclub bombings of 2002 that killed more than 200, mostly Western, tourists. Dujana described Jemaah Islamiyah as "an underground organization," saying "it will continue to exist and continue to move on with its plans" to create an Islamic state under Sharia law despite his capture.

  • PA Votes: Pennsylvanians head to the polls tomorrow voting in their primary, and deciding who gets the bigger slice of the 158 delegate pie. Polls show Clinton with a small but not devastating lead, indicating that the race will continue on to Indiana and North Carolina.
  • Carter and Hamas: Former US President Jimmy Carter reports after meeting Hamas leaders in Syria, that Hamas is prepared to accept the right of Israel to "live as a neighbour next door in peace." Carter was troubled that the US and Israel would not meet the group. His visit with the group has caused controversy, which he defends by saying, "the problem is not that I met with Hamas in Syria. The problem is that Israel and the United States refuse to meet with someone who must be involved." Carter said Hamas had said that it would accept an Israeli state within its pre-1967 borders if such an agreement was approved by Palestinians.

    Why does anyone care that Carter is using hamas? What else tastes that good with pita? Wait, hummus? I get really confused about this stuff.

    Surprising that Indonesia gave the militant any jail time. They are trying to remain a 'secular' (or modern) State. Good for them and I hope it doesn't end in more bombings. Westerners will never comprehend the hatred that Muslims have for everyone else. They excuse it, like their other deviant behaviors on "the Koran." As Golda Meier said so long ago: There will never be peace in the Middle East until the Muslims/Arabs love their Children more than they hate the Jews. PA Voting tomorrow. I'm gonna go with Hillary because of Obama's and wife's elitist remarks. The empty suit is beginning to show. And the full pantsuit is showing as well. Carter and Hamas: Doesn't he read his Koran? It clearly states that a Muslim can lie to any infidel if it propagates Islam. Carter is a clown who is one tent shy of a circus. He's out standing in the field waiting for the rest of the circus to show up. Sorry, but he was definitely the worst president the USofA has had up to that point, and if you'll read your history books, we've had a few doozies.
