‘Germans Have to Distinguish between Muslims and Murderers’

From Spiegel ONLINE

Investigators now believe that the man who killed two US airmen at Frankfurt Airport on Wednesday was acting alone. Still, German commentators find little comfort in knowing that. To them, it just means no one’s safe anymore.

Germany is in a state of shock following Wednesday’s fatal shooting at Frankfurt Airport, which left two US airmen dead and two wounded. It appears to have been the first deadly attack with an Islamist motive on German soil.

Hostage Oversupply in Somalia?
Pirates Negotiate Better Deals to Free Up Space

From Spiegel ONLINE

Somali pirates may have reached their limit, at least for now. Security agencies have suggested that Somali pirates are willing to negotiate lower ransoms to release ships they have seized — because they are running out of room.

Somali pirates have made large swathes of the Indian Ocean a no-go area, but lately they’ve become victims of their own success. Security agencies report that pirate groups are more willing to negotiate the release of captured vessels lately — in large part, experts believe, because their ports at Haradheere, Eyl and Hobyo are choked up with ships.

A Murder Rattles German Soldiers’ Faith in Afghan Allies

From Spiegel ONLINE

In mid-February, an Afghan soldier working at a NATO outpost opened fire on German soldiers, killing three and wounding eight. The attack has rattled German nerves and caused them to harbor doubts over the loyalty of their supposed allies. But the advantages to the partnering may be larger than the shortcomings.

The Germans call the light-colored guardhouse in their camp the “White House.” That’s what Salim Mir calls it, too. Mir is a powerfully built 49-year-old sporting a black moustache and the green uniform of the Afghan army, with its wine-red velvet collar tab. Mir speaks of a “disgrace.” He says the “enemy” infiltrated their ranks and that Islamists are using young Afghans for their own ends.

National Council Proposes Three Demands for Al Qathafi to Step Down

The Tripoli Post

The most significant news doing the rounds in Libya and internationally was the suggestion that the Libyan leader, Muammar Al Qathafi could call it a day and leave the country within three days without getting pursued by the Libyans for crimes committed. But at the end of the day the Libyan people still harbour doubts as to what could happen.

    You are a really skilled blogger. No, you are better than that. You are a very skilled WRITER, regardless of the medium. You write with passion, yet your stories are also nuanced and lack mean spiritedness or sensationalism. Yet they are sensational! I’m not sure I’m making sense, so I’ll stop and tell you how important your work truly is, in case you did not know.

    Good work. I notice that your columns for the North County Times are a little different from the ones on your website. I think I like them here better. Just a thought.

    I’m with Harry. I don’t have much money and I am not even from the states, but this is the kind of site that deserves support. I spend what I would guess is a few dollars a day for coffee. But I am donating it to a site that is interested in telling the truth about things, which is a real rarity these days. Keep going. I’m behind you!

  10. Shimmel says:

    Thanks for all the free content that I’ve been reading for more than a year. I never thought about the person writing it and all that they are going through. I guess I just thought that it came from a source and I never thought that that source was a person who has to pay his bills like everyone else. You are not a website, but a person. I realize that now. Please keep up the great work. I think I know someone who might be able to help you. I will contact her and get back to you. God’s speed.
