I don’t know something called international Principles. I vow that I will burn every Palestinian child (that) will be born in this area.
The Palestinian woman and child are more dangerous than the man because the Palestinian child’s existence infers that generations will go on, but the man causes limited danger.I vow that if I was just an Israeli civilian and I met a Palestinian I would burn him and I would make him suffer before killing him.

According to the state's office of the Attorney General, gun dealers sold around 600,000 guns last year, nearly double the 350,000 sold in 2002, according to figures compiled by department officials.

The Sinn Féin Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland, who has never taken his seat in Westminster, was appointed Steward and Bailiff of the Manor of Northstead. Mr McGuinness formally announced he was resigning as Sinn Féin MP for Mid-Ulster late last month, saying the move was “in line with [his] party’s commitment to end double jobbing".

Appointment to the office is a procedural device to effect resignation from the House. The only other ways of vacating a seat are death, disqualification or expulsion
Researchers testing promising non-pharmaceutical Alzheimer's treatment ~ link ~ Researchers at Johns Hopkins University are carrying out clinical tests in which a pacemaker-like device is implanted into the brains of patients with early-stage Alzheimer's disease.
"We are very excited about the possibilities of this potentially new way to treat Alzheimer's," said lead researcher Constantine G. Lyketsos.
Alzheimer's is an incurable, degenerative disease that leads to progressive loss of cognitive function, including memory and the ability to perform simple daily tasks. An estimated 5.2 million people over the age of 64 currently suffer from Alzheimer's disease in the United States, and this number is project triple by 2050.
