Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat´s
remains said to be exhumed
Tuesday in Ramallah to test
for polonium poisoning

Associated Press, by Staff

Ramallah, West Bank - The remains of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat will be exhumed Tuesday as part of a renewed investigation into his death, a Palestinian investigator said Saturday. Arafat died in November 2004 in a French military hospital, a month after suddenly falling ill. Palestinian officials claim he was poisoned by Israel, but have not presented evidence. Israel has denied such allegations. Earlier this year, the detection of a lethal radioactive substance in biological traces on Arafat´s clothing sparked a new investigation. Tests were inconclusive, and experts said

Comments:
I suspect the local terrorist are using this exhumation to see if Arafat had a secret decoder ring on his pinky finger with clues as to where he hid the billions WE gave them in foreign aid for "renouncing terrorism." Or, if his tomb is really a vault for the money.

"We totally and absolutely renounce all forms of terrorism, including individual, group and state terrorism."
Yasser Arafat — Dec. 14, 1988 in Geneva, accepting U.N. Security Council resolutions recognizing Israel.

It was part of Arafat´s burial contract to be dug up every 8 years to make sure the stake that had to be driven through his miserable black heart didn´t come loose.

Look, here`s the deal. Either Arafat had to go or Ringo Starr. Since Arafat is Ringo`s evil twin, Ringo got the gig. He`s a nicer guy.

At least five structures were seen engulfed in flames. Resident Steve Whittenberg of Glendora said he also saw a structure catch fire.

Tehran - Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum urged the international community to lift economic sanctions against Iran. “Iran is our neighbor and we don’t want any problems,” Sheikh Mohammed, who is also vice president and prime minister of the UAE, said in a televised interview with BBC News. Sheikh Mohammed said that wider relief from sanctions would mean “everyone will benefit”. On November 24, Iran and the Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, Britain and France plus Germany) sealed a six-month Joint Plan of Action in Geneva to lay the groundwork for the full resolution of the West’s decade-old dispute with

Boston & Washington - Target Corp and Neiman Marcus are not the only U.S. retailers whose networks were breached over the holiday shopping season late last year, according to sources familiar with attacks on other merchants that have yet to be publicly disclosed. Smaller breaches on at least three other well-known U.S. retailers took place and were conducted using similar techniques as the one on Target, according to the people familiar with the attacks. Those breaches have yet to come to light. Also, similar breaches may have occurred earlier last year. The sources said that they involved retailers with outlets in malls,

At the request of the government of India, the United States will withdraw one official from its embassy in New Delhi over tensions involving a case surrounding an Indian diplomat. The decision comes as Devyani Khobragade, whose December arrest and strip search in New York strained ties between New Delhi and Washington, headed back to India. State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki said she hopes this will help gain closure in the incident. U.S. prosecutors accuse Khobragade of lying in a visa application about how much she paid her housekeeper. She was indicted this week by a federal grand jury on

Cairo - The referendum on Egypt´s new draft constitution slated for Jan. 14-15 represents a major milestone in the country´s future roadmap, political experts said. The referendum marks the first time that Egyptians would go to the polls since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi by the military last July, after mass protests against his one-year rule and his Muslim Brotherhood group. (Snip) The new constitution is a prior step to pave the way for presidential and parliamentary elections in the country which is now run by an interim president and a transitional government.

A Dallas conservation group´s auction of a rare license to hunt an endangered black rhino in Africa has outraged conservationists, leading to death threats against the auction´s organizer. The Dallas Safari Club plans to auction off the license Saturday night, hoping to raise as much as $1 million for conservation efforts. Criticism has come from groups including People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), which said the sale is a case of letting rich hunters buy a thrill at the cost of a rhino´s life. About 4,800 black rhinos are believed to be living worldwide, according to the World Wildlife Federation. The Namibian tourism ministry says about 1,750

Charleston, W.Va. - On the third day without clean tap water, business owners with empty dining rooms and quiet aisles of merchandise around West Virginia´s capital were left to wonder how much of an economic hit they´ll take from a chemical spill. Most visitors have cleared out of Charleston while locals are either staying home or driving out of the area to find somewhere they can get a hot meal or take a hot shower. Orders not to use tap water for much other than flushing toilets mean that the spill is an emergency not just for the environment but also for local businesses.

Nasserist politician Hamdeen Sabbahi said on Saturday that he may still run in the coming presidential elections, stressing that his decision to compete will not depend on whether army chief Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi also runs. (Snip) The Nasserist figure said he would not back a presidential candidate whose team included members of the Muslim Brotherhood. A founding member of the Egyptian Popular Current, Sabbahi came third in the 2012 presidential elections, after the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi (eventual winner) and Mubarak-era politician Ahmed Shafiq.

Seattle - In his second-floor office above a hair salon in north Seattle, Ryan Kunkel is seated on a couch placing $1,000 bricks of cash — dozens of them — in a rumpled brown paper bag. (Snip) Legal marijuana merchants like Mr. Kunkel — mainly medical marijuana dispensaries but also, starting this year, shops that sell recreational marijuana in Colorado and Washington — are grappling with a pressing predicament: Their businesses are conducted almost entirely in cash because it is exceedingly difficult for them to open and maintain bank accounts, and thus accept credit cards.

There´s an American health crisis that doesn´t have anything to do with federal health care websites, rising deductibles or doctor shortages. Our pets are getting sicker, and many pet owners don´t even have a clue. (Snip) "It´s really very simple — if we can get people to see veterinarians once or twice a year, pets would be healthier, and living longer, and overall pet owners could actually save money," says Michael Cavanaugh, CEO of the American Animal Hospital Association. This crisis in pet health has spurred a new $5.5 million public awareness campaign urging annual checkups.

After eight years in a vegetative state following a severe stroke, former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel "Arik" Sharon has passed away at the age of 85. (Snip) Headstrong - sometimes to the point of recklessness - and ruthless in battle, Sharon quickly earned a reputation as a fierce warrior and eventually as one of Israel´s greatest military strategists.

Months and months ago, when Barack Obama could be bothered to say anything at all about the attacks in Ben-ghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012, the president promised to bring the perpetrators to justice. That was before White House spokesman Jay Carney dismissed the attacks as something that “happened a long time ago.” It’s been 16 months. The U.S. government has neither captured nor killed a single participant in those attacks, which left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead. Why?

T ea Party activists and the conservative groups that have enforced their agenda are vehemently opposed to the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill that will fund the government through September. On Wednesday evening, the House passed the bill anyway, 359 to 67, with plenty of votes to spare. Sixty-four of those no votes were from conservative Republicans. But it seems pretty clear from the vote tally that Tea Party–style "ideological purity has lost its power," says Jonathan Weisman in The New York Times. "The budget process that is culminating in the passage of the spending bill has ushered in a remarkable marginalization

A multi-billion-dollar high-speed train network linking America with Mexico moved a step closer as officials from both sides of the border thrashed out details. The proposed 300 mile route would link San Antonio, Texas, to Monterrey, Mexico - slashing the current journey time from five hours by car to under two hours. Advocates say the project, which would be the first high-speed train line in North America and is set to be completed by 2018, will provide huge economic boost to regions in both nations.

Have you ever lied about reading a book? Maybe you didn’t want to seem stupid in front of someone you respected. Maybe you rationalized it by reasoning that you had a familiarity with the book, or knew who the author was, or what the story was about, or had glanced at its Wikipedia page. Or maybe you had tried to read the book, even bought it and set it by your bed for months unopened, hoping that it would impart what was in it merely via proximity (if that worked, please email me).

Welcome to modern day governance in America! In this brave new world. vital legislation need not be read, or considered, or debated. Isn´t it enough that the leaders say vote for it and be done with it? Apparently, yes. The House approved the $1.1 trillion spending bill in near record time. The 1500 page bill contains all sorts of stuff that no one has a clue about because unless you´re a graduate of the Eveyln Wood speed reading course, you didn´t have much of a chance to study it.

(Video) Pennsylvania’s voter ID law, among the nation’s most stringent, was struck down Friday morning by a state judge. Commonwealth Court Judge Bernard L. McGinley ruled that the law, requiring almost all voters to present photo identification prior to voting, was an unreasonable burden on voters. He said the free voter ID that residents were entitled to under the law was insufficiently available, only at 71 drivers license centers located across the state. Several counties had no such centers and others were only open two days a week, leading McGinley to rule that the law “unnecessarily burden[s] the hundreds of thousands
