The two men both Jewish have been convicted by Iran for spying. Don’t bother commenting that they are Christians who celebrate Christmas. They are ethnic Jews end of story. That’s always the context I use the term, never solely as a religious group. These hikers really strike me as Zionists but that we may never know.
The Jewish woman hiker Sarah was set free for health reasons with a large bail paid first. But the two men not so lucky: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2011/07/30/sarah-shourd-and-others-hope-iran-will-set-the-hikers-free.html
Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer were taken into custody while vacationing in Iraq two summers ago, after they got lost in the mountains and wandered into Iran. A third hiker, Sarah Shourd, was released last year on $500,000 bail. Even before the verdict was announced, the families of the hikers told Newsweek they would appeal a decision that didn’t bring their sons home immediately.
“To our many supporters: we THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for your messages of support!” the family wrote on their Twitter account, upon announcement of the verdict. “What we need now more than ever is your support in getting Shane & Josh released. Peaceful communication is MOST supportive to us during this intensely challenging time, especially as it honors the values that Sarah, Shane and Josh hold so dear.”
The men have now served 750 days in prison, compared to the Iranian Hostage Crisis in 1979 which lasted 444 days.
An Iranian court is scheduled to issue a verdict within a week in the case of two American hikers detained in Iran, the hikers’ lawyer Sunday.
Attorney Masoud Shafiei said Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer are innocent of charges that they illegally entered Iran as spies. The lawyer reiterated at a hearing Sunday that the Americans have maintained their innocence throughout months of imprisonment.
If the court reaches a guilty verdict, Shafiei said the time the two have spent in Iranian custody is enough.
“I believe that even if the court finds my clients guilty, the two years that they have already served in prison would be considered as their sentence and they would be released,” he said. Sunday’s hearing occurred two years to the date of their arrest while hiking near the country’s border with Iraq.
Fattal and Bauer could be freed within a week of a court order, according to the lawyer. http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2011/07/31/american-hikers-in-iran-could-be-set-free-in-a-week-lawyer-says/

Chetry’s exit also leaves “American Morning,” consistently the lowest-rated of the cable news morning shows, without any permanent hosts at all. Chetry’s former co-host John Roberts left the network in January. (Roberts famously had a testy on-air confrontation with Chetry in September.) Since his departure, a rotating cast of CNN regulars, led by Ali Velshi, has been filling in alongside Chetry. CNN has not yet announced who will become the permanent hosts of the perennially struggling show.
Kiran has been anchor there for five years. But after the shakeup and Spitzer leaving, he should have never been there, she will be moving on. But where?

I just saw this: someone made a latex mask of Casey Anthony and it looks just like her and sold it on eBay for a million dollars. She did not get the money but someone made some money on her mug.
I was just trying to fill the cat’s water dish and not throw away some ice, so I put it in his water bowl and called him over to try it. He loved the ice and drank more water at the same time. It’s hot you gotta do what you can. He also wants to be inside more. The bowl was inside the house so the ice lasted longer.

Another white man who can’t get laid has laid plans to shoot up and bomb up the base or near the Fort Hood Base, but the creep got caught. It turns out they were looking for his pervert butt because he was found with child porn on his computer and the army was looking for him when he went AWOL on July fourth and took a taxi from the airport and came over 800 miles in order to buy more ammo and be near the Fort Hood Texas town. He wanted to get even with the army and imitate Nadal Hassan.
This Abdo guy looks like a white guy you changed his name and converted to Islam. If you see my earlier post the doctor said that men like this, young, white men, behaving badly, can’t get laid or have trouble with relationships with women or men go in for media attention by doing some genocidal act. Remember we need to ignore people like this and not give them the hype they want but point out that they are LOSERS! And kudos to the retired service man and police officer who spotted something wrong when the guy took a cab and bought smokeless gunpowder and did not know what it was for. Don’t mess with Texas.

I didn’t want to say anything because I hate to be wrong. But finally, I thought maybe I better get back to meditating as I had given it up for some time now. So for the last three nights I’ve been getting up and I told God straight up, frankly, I was meditating for rain. The first day there were so many clouds in the sky you could not see it. The clouds were white but it kept the heat down for the day for the first time in a long time. Then today there were only a few clouds in the sky and I thought well, I won’t give up. Just now heard that a darn hurricaine with rain was headed our way!
I told my sister it looks like praying for rain did not work and honestly I did not pray a word when first asked about doing it. But I’ve just had it with the dryness and having to postpone my vacation for the heat and dry weather. Okay God we need the rain if it takes wishful thinking, prayers and even meditation in the night I will do it. Tonight was the third night, but I am going to keep at it. We could use some help too.
South Korea however got a boatload of rain and they are flooded entirely. We don’t want that but we do want some rain in Texas and the states around us.
show and the psychologist ranted about white guys who commit these genocides should not be grabbing media attention. He went on to say that white men he interviewed had not getting laid in common.

A pastor is suing Rachel to editing his message to sound like he advocates killing gays and that the Muslims will do God’s will in this manner if they don’t flee Hollywood and gay sin. Read it at the link.
Rachel is openly gay and this gay obsession and rabid lefty crap has gone from her butt to her head.
