"Let's Roll"

OK, after much delay (and considerable considering), the UB-independent blog for PSY 487 has finally been set-up. And just in time for the end of the semester! Use it as you see fit, or just ignore it . . . the choice is yours. Cheers, "The Owner."

For those interested in tuesdays lecture. Here are the videos of released hostage Jill Carroll. A few news agencies referred to them as the "forced propaganda videos".

Thanks, but this is one of the old tapes. The two latest tapes include one made on or about the day before her release (by the terrorists) and one made in the party headquarters shortly after her release. In both of these tapes she is critical of the U.S. mission in Iraq and of the projected outcome. These comments provoked criticism from some conservative bloggers.

I'm sorry but if someone was holding a gun to my head I would say anything I could to save my life. I would not jeopardize others lives, but anything else is fair game. If I was released I would hope that the people of the US would understand that I didi what I had to do to survive. Once safely at ahome I would recant anything I didn't truly mean to say. For people to condemn Jill Carrol for her remarks is just wrong. Let's see how those people fair under the same conditions.

on tuesday's terrorism class,we talked about Al Qaeda's being anti- semitic but when I check Zawahiri's recent tape from Turkish sources, I see that al qaeda appears to be against Siyonizm and Crusaders not Jews.
Besides, I recommend everyone to check the following website http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3303485,00.html. it is an interesting example about the unpredictable diversity of Al Queda's follower profile.

more to that, if you want to read different aspects of Al Qaeda which is originated in the idea that AL Qaeda itself is a Jewish Organization, I recommend you read the article:

The Pakistan Daily article looks like a mishmash of names and philosophies to try and add depth to a very shallow theory. I don't think al-Qaeda has much to do with Judaism. Furthermore, that idea of al-Qaeda being a mix of Hebrew and German is downright silly. I'm not sure how "da" translates to "are here" (I thought it simply meant "yes"), but the fact that "al chai" is hebrew, and shares some structure with Arabic shouldn't come as a surprise, seeing both languages come from common stock.
Finally, President Bush's lack of interest towards bin Laden is not surprising. The Bush administration seeked from early on to link 9/11 and al-Qaeda to Saddam Hussein in order to justify the war on Iraq. With that agenda in mind, spending too much time hunting bin Laden was counterproductive.
