Thursday digest

- I hate this frickin' idiot. What's sad is that I highly doubt she's the only 25-year old girl who don't know who Tony Blair is. What can you expect from a generation who thinks that tuning into the news means sitting down to watch "Entertainment Tonight"?

- Joining the ranks of those calling for a Middle East ceasefire is Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who said this: "Although the main solution is for the elimination of the Zionist regime, at this stage an immediate cease-fire must be implemented". The fact that this terrorist is pro-ceasefire means that sensible people should be against it. He only wants the time to re-arm and re-deploy before launching another attack. Besides, a ceasefire would equate to both a) negotiating with terrorists, and b) rewarding Hezbollah for their tactics. Israel's allies should stop worrying about PR and Israel to smash Hezbollah as quickly as possible.

- Here in Canada, high-profile, liberal Islamic activist Tarek Fatah is moving out of the public spotlight, partly because he fears for his safety. I've heard that this guy is a master of self-promotion, but the fact remains that Canadian Islam has some serious problems when Muslims who speak out against its excesses such as sharia law receive death threats. As far as I know, this doesn't happen to liberal Catholics and evangelicals or anti-Israel Jews in the West.
