Ahmadinejad: We Will Export Nuclear Technology
Speaking on Iran's National Nuclear Technology Day (April 9), Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said his country was determined to continue refining uranium and even to share its knowledge in the nuclear field to with other countries. He said that Iran's nuclear achievements proved the country could not be routed with threats and sanctions. Iranian FM Ali Akbar Salehi announced that the civilian nuclear reactor in Bushehr would be refueled, estimating that it would be operational by next month. Head of Iran's Nuclear Energy Organization Fereydoun Abbasi said that second and third generation centrifuges had been successfully tested and that uranium refinement was continuing at less than 5%.

Late last month I asked, who will interrogate top al Qaeda terrorist Umar Patek? Patek, who was captured in Pakistan, is wanted for his role in the 2002 Bali bombings, among other attacks and plots. He is easily one of the most important international terrorists captured in the past few years. Indeed, Marc Thiessen argued that Patek is the “biggest terrorist catch of the Obama era.”
Christians Barred By NYPD From Muslim/ANSWER Sponsored Anti-War Rally
Written By : Warner Todd Huston
Two Christians were told by Police that they were not allowed to attend an anti-war rally held by a conglomerate of Muslims groups, unions, and Barack Obama’s Organizing for America organization on April 9 in New York City.
About 1,000 people came together at Union Square on Saturday to protest the U.S. military at a rally sponsored by the group Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER).
James Simpson reports, though, that two Christians were removed from the scene by police because the jackboots claimed that they were “disturbing people.”
According to a counterprotester on the scene, “Besides the sea of them, there were two Christians peacefully preaching about how Jesus died for our sins, and the police told them to leave because they were “disturbing people.”
This event was co-sponsored by the usual, anti-American suspects, of course. A group calling itself the Muslim Peace Coalition USA was one of the sponsors. So was the Islamic Circle of North America. As well as a host of radical, anti-American groups many with ties to The Worker’s World Party socialists.
As Simpson notes, this rally got much favorable TV time in Iran and acted to assist that murderous regime with it’s anti-American propaganda. It’s great that they could aid and abet our enemies, isn’t it?
