Webhosting problems

I've run into webhosting problems with tripod during the time I was away in the army. I'm working on it now, if anyone has any suggestions on hosting, or is able to offer me a place with enough bandwidth, please post a comment here.

Meanwhile, in Froggystan...

A new poll was published in France, the country where synagouge burning is considered a national sport and a quiet time-passing hobby. Somehow I get the strange sensation that French don't love Israel... Weird, right?
A new poll in France showed that most of the French people view the Israeli regime as a terrorist entity, and hold it responsible for bloodshed and political turmoil in Palestine.
Questioning whether the the Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was a hero of the Palestinian resistance or a terrorist, 43% voted for the former, while only 27% chose the latter.
I'm hearing Chirac really wants Arafat to be burried on the Temple Mount. If the French are into burrying that butcher in a holy site, can I please suggest Notre Dame?

The great Arafat-a-palooza

As it seems that he happy event of Arafat finaly kicking the bucket, This blog is proud to present the Arafat-a-Palooza, the best of Arafat throughout the years.
First of all, the best Arafat inspired art in years, Mickey Arafat:

Then we can always remember the more calm, and fluent moments of Arafat with a few videos:
  • Arafat telling exactly where he wants Barak.
  • Yasser Arafat greeting the head of the Orthodox Church in Jerusalem.
As well as some of his more Bizzare moments. Like this must-have interview with Christian Amanpour of CNN.
YASSER ARAFAT, CHAIRMAN, PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY: You have to be accurately when you are speaking with General Yasser Arafat. Be quiet!

AMANPOUR: Mr. Arafat, what did you make of Colin Powell's statement...

ARAFAT: (UNINTELLIGIBLE). You are covering this question. This terrorist activities of the Israeli occupation and the Israeli crimes. Be fair. (UNINTELLIGIBLE).

AMANPOUR: Can I ask...

ARAFAT: Thank you. Bye-bye.
And ofcourse Arafat's candid invitation to Mike Wallace of "60 Minutes":

Wallace: Four out of five Palestinians in a recent poll, 83 percent actually, said they believe that the Palestinian Authority is corrupt; that there is money that has been stolen consistently, that your people – I mean, look. Around here, they have money, they have jobs, they have cars. The Palestinians who live out here in Ramallah, where the unemployment is 36 percent, and down in Gaza, where it`s 48 percent, they don’t live the way that you do. It’s a comfortable life for you and your colleagues.

Arafat: Do you want to see my bedroom?

Wallace: Do I wanna see your bedroom?

Arafat: Yes.

Wallace: I, I’m not sure that I understand the invitation. But what about your bedroom?

I'm now collecting more and more of these funny bits. I'll post more once I'm home next time

Oh look, raving lunatics

Apparently the blog has been linked by various Nazimedia groups for our bit in taking down Palestine-info off Googlenews. Like here, and here. Another site linking to us now is BreakforNews.com which is a collection of crazy-talk with what I have to admit are very creative conspiracy theories, and lots of articles which appear to have been written by people on drugs. Expect trolls.

A victory?

Is it possible we've scored another victory against listing deadly terrorist sites as news? Before I left for the army, I got an email from Googlenews saying they're looking into Palestine-info details. Searching now for "palestine-info" on Googlenews shows that the last news item from that source was from November 2. Meaning it's been off for almost a week. Victory it is.

Update:
looks like being off Googlenews caused Palestine-info to show it's real face, using the words that got Nazimedia kicked out of Googlenews: Zionazis.
