Meaning is everything. If you’re not getting is right, you’re getting it wrong
A typo, or typographical error, is a fairly commonplace thing and an inherent danger of the printed word. Historically such errors have at times produced catastrophic and very costly results. The lack of a hyphen in some computer coding cost NASA hundreds of millions of dollars in an aborted rocket launch and there are many more such examples. But by far the worst and most deadly typo in history is that of the Mardin fatwa written originally by Ibn Taymiyya (d 1328) who was from the Mardin area of Turkey at the time of the Mongol invasion. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibn_Taymiyyah
To scholars and students of this subject, this fatwa problem is well known, but for many who are not familiar with the subject, it is worth revisiting here as the fatwa is suddenly of immense topicality. The text was, and is still used by many militant terroristic groups to support and justify their killings of countless numbers of innocent…

Apologies for any foul language used in advance… Russell Howard’s Ignorant EDL
CISPA has been very recently halted… But did you know?:
“While news media was focused on the [Boston Bombing], the U.S. House of Representatives quietly approved CISPA [Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act], with a vote of 288 to 127.” (Source)
CONCLUSION 1: Keep an eye on what the government are trying to pass through to legislation when a ‘panic’ hits the media.
“We can relax now that CISPA is dead, right? Unfortunately, the answer is a little unclear at this point. An unnamed representative on Rockefeller’s committee says that “issues and key provisions” of CISPA will be divvied up and made into separate bills. In other words, CISPA will be broken up into smaller, separate bills in the Senate.” (Source)
“Another report says that staff and senators are dividing the issues and the key provisions that are absolutely necessary and they’ll be drafting separate bills.” (Source)
CONCLUSION 2: The damaging elements of CISPA can still make it through into legislation. But doing it this way is clever by being harder to spot and track…

Speech by Dr Dahlia Wasfi
Hitherto unseen evidence given to the Chilcot Inquiry by British intelligence has revealed that former prime minister Tony Blair was told that Iraq had, at most, only a trivial amount of weapons of mass destruction (WMD)… and subsequently ordered the production of dossiers to “find the intelligence” that he wanted to use to justify going to war.

The Famous “War on Loonacy” Speech
This is the original [PREVIOUSLY UNSEEN] speech that the President had prepared prior to when the Twin Towers came down on September 11th, 2001, but delivered soon after they came down and which was written 12 years later, give or take a decade:
Mr. Speaker, Mr. President Pro Tempore, Members of Congress, and fellow Americans:
We have seen the courage of passengers, who allegedly rushed murderers to save others on the ground (which certainly is a heroic act, that mustn’t be belittled – even if the official story isn’t true) passengers like an exceptional man named Todd Beamer. And we pray to God for him and his family – swearing ‘what we know not what’ should the government be telling us the littlest of white lies. Like, that their plane wasn’t shot down or some other such ‘need to know basis’ from more classified sources. We all know how our government, “Big Brother, Loves us”… We all know how we truly found the weapons of mass destruction they specifically told us was there in Iraq, did we not? So with that in mind, would you please help me to welcome his wife, Lisa Beamer, here tonight. [Applause] Continue reading
Orson Welles played with the American public on radio in 1938 and made them believe an alien invasion from outer space (as inspired by the fictitious ‘War of the Worlds’) was actually taking place. There was mass panic and hysteria. Now we in Britain1 laugh our heads off, exclaiming: “How stupid were these Americans!”
Ha ha ha… Continue reading
