But the strategy is unsound and impractical, and it will probably further destabilize an already volatile region.

Iran NIE Deepens U.N. Security Council Rifts on Sanctions By: Guy Taylor | World Politics Review
The sudden release this week of a U.S. intelligence assessment that said Iran halted its nuclear weapons program some four years ago appears to have deepened the rift between U.N. Security Council members over whether the international community will continue pursuing stiffer economic sanctions against Iran.

Washington Times Nuclear deceptions If Iran actually stopped something in 2003, we don't know what it is. Because, of course, what they stopped was covert and has never been declared or inspected.

Boston Globe Why believe it this time? THIS WEEK'S release of the new National Intelligence Estimate on Iran has renewed debate about American policy toward the Islamic Republic, but it also raises important questions about the state of US intelligence. Having been so wrong about weapons of mass destruction in the past, is it credible now? (By Jim Walsh, Boston Globe)

Battle Lines Over Mortgage Plan The White House's plan to help more than one million homeowners hurt by subprime mortgages, unveiled by Bush and Paulson, is drawing fire on two fronts. It is being criticized on the one hand for not going far enough to help strapped homeowners, and on the other for bailing out reckless borrowers.

And what do you think of Obadiah Shoher's arguments against the peace process ( samsonblinded.org/blog/we-need-a-respite-from-peace.htm )?
 
Most of the Western Muslim establishment is comprised of Islamist groups claiming to be moderates. True moderate Muslims reject Islamic supremacy and Sharia; embrace religious equality and democracy.

What is a moderate Muslim? According to a dictionary, a moderate is a person who is opposed to radical or extreme views or measures, especially in politics or religion. Yet, majority of the public seem to be struggling with the definition of a moderate Muslim. Perhaps we can make this task easier by defining a radical Muslim and then defining the moderate as an opposite of the radical.

Muslims Against Sharia compiled a list of issues that differentiate moderate Muslims from Islamic radicals. Hopefully you can help us grow this list.

What they have said about Foreign Press Review
"FPR'ın iki "kötü" özelliği var: 1. Alışkanlık yaratıyor, onsuz yapamaz hale geliyorsunuz; 2. Değeri alındığı değil, arada bir de olsa, alınamadığı vakit anlaşılıyor. Bir de sürekli bir kaygıya yol açıyor; 'Ya bir gün kesilir ve onu hiç alamazsam' duygusuyla sürekli yaşamak kolay değil."
