Abbas resign for peace, must quit: Israel

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman yesterday denounced Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas as the "greatest obstacle to peace" and said his resignation would be a "blessing."

The comments by Avigdor Lieberman drew an angry response from Palestinians, who accused him of calling for an assassination and appealed to the United States and the European Union to intervene.
Lieberman told reporters earlier Monday: "If there is one obstacle that should be removed immediately, it is. If he were to return the keys and resign, it would not be a threat, but a blessing."
Many other Western-trained Palestinians could replace him, Lieberman said.
Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, said that there will be no point of keeping the P.A while Israel continues its violations and settlement activities

Gaddafi dead and final words:'Do you know what is right or wrong?'


 Gaddafi's final words:'Do you know what is right or wrong?'
Gaddafi says: 'What are you doing? It's not allowed in Islamic law. What you are doing is forbidden.

'What you're doing is wrong, guys. Do you know what is right or wrong?'
As they continued to drag the 69-year-old through the street he whispered: "What are you doing? It's haraam [forbidden].

"It's not allowed in Islamic law. Haraam.
"What you are doing is forbidden in Islam!"
A bloodied and beaten Moammar Khadafy asked the fighters who captured him "Do you know right from wrong?" in what could well have been the final words of the ousted Libyan dictator.
New video footage emerged Friday showing the former strongman apparently in his last moments, surrounded and pleading for his life, repeatedly telling the mob swarming around him, "What you are doing is forbidden in Islamic law."

Muammar Gaddafi and his son Mo'tassim
The young men scream 'Muammar, you dog!' as their former leader wipes at blood covering the left side of his head, neck and left shoulder.
Gaddafi gestures to the young men to be patient, and says 'What's going on?' as he wipes fresh blood from his temple and glances at his palm.
A young fighter later is shown carrying a boot and screaming, 'This is Muammar's shoe! This is Muammar's shoe! Victory! Victory!'
'Keep him alive, keep him alive!' someone shouts.
Another rebel screams: 'God is great. God is omnipotent.' And as Gaddafi begs for mercy, a fighter says: 'Shut up, you dog.' The recording then ends.
Various cell phone videos of Gaddafi’s last moments have been documented, showing the wounded and disoriented ex-dictator being shuffled through the streets of Sirte.
In one of the videos, Gaddafi asks his rebel captors, “What did I do to you?”
“Do you know right from wrong?” he questions.
'Do you know right from wrong?' Ironic last-known words of
A statement confirmed NATO aircraft struck 11 pro-Gaddafi military vehicles, which were among a heavily-armed convoy of 75 vehicles that was transporting Gaddafi away from Sirte "at high speed" at around 8:30 a.m. local time Thursday.
NATO officials added, "We later learned from open sources and Allied intelligence that
Gaddafi was in the convoy and that the strike likely contributed to his capture."
Meanwhile a Libyan freedom fighter has recounted the dramatic moments when he was directed to an injured Muammar Gaddafi in Sirte.
A high-pitched hysterical scream. Gaddafi then goes out of view and gunshots ring out that shows Gaddafi dead on the ground. He has clearly been killed.
The ambulance driver, Ali Jaghdoun, said Gaddafi was dead when he picked him up and he then drove the body to the city of Misrata. ' I didn't try to revive him because he was already dead, Jaghdoun said.
Gaddafi's golden gun was stripped from him. He also had a silver gun.
The irony of his plea would not be lost on the thousands of Libyans who suffered under
Gaddafi's tyrannical 42-year regime, nor did the international community which laid the blame for a long list of atrocities at his door, most notably the 1988 Lockerbie bombing that kill 270 people, mainly Americans.

Carson Palmer’s arm strength was a major liability or NFL career.

Carson Palmer is an American professional football quarterback for the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Bengals first overall in the 2003 NFL Draft. He played collegiate at the University of Southern California and won the Heist man Trophy in 2002. He has been selected to two Pro Bowls. He was born December 27, 1979

Quarterback Carson Palmer has been traded to the Oakland Raiders after a standout career with the Bengals. Palmer is entering his ninth season in 2011 after being the top overall pick by the Bengals in 2003.

The conditional pick in 2013 that the Bengals acquired in Tuesday's Carson Palmer trade will be a first-rounder if the Raiders win one playoff game.
If the Raiders don't get a playoff win, the 2013 pick will be a second-rounder. They get the 2012 first-round pick regardless. Either way, it's an exceedingly high price tag for a quarterback that was a shell of the Pro Bowl player he once was when last seen on the field. In 2010, Palmer threw 26 touchdowns against 20 interceptions and his arm strength was a major liability.
The above screen grab of Carson Palmer’s fantasy football profile was sent in by a reader due to some alarming contradictions that fall within centimeters of one another.
The Raiders are interested in trading for Carson Palmer to fill their quarterback vacancy and have approached the Cincinnati Bengals about the signal caller.
The Raiders lost quarterback Jason Campbell, likely for the season, with a broken collarbone on Sunday against the Browns.
Highlights of Carson Palmer's Bengals career
April 26, 2003: Bengals take Carson Palmer with the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft. Palmer, the Heist man Trophy at the University of Southern California, does not play in a regular-season game as a rookie.
Jan. 2, 2011: A season that began with great optimism amid the addition of receiver Terrell Owens ends with a 13-7 loss at Baltimore in what turns out to be Palmer’s final game as a Bengal. He throws for 305 yards and a touchdown, but has two interceptions and a costly fumble.
Jan. 24, 2011: Bengals president Mike Brown confirms that Palmer has asked for a trade, adding he told Palmer’s representatives the Bengals intend to keep him.
May 16, 2011: Palmer’s Indian Hill home goes under contract to be sold.
July 26, 2011: With the NFL lockout over, Brown makes his strongest comments regarding the team’s intention to keep Palmer: “Carson signed a contract; he made a commitment . . . If he is going to walk away from his commitment, we aren’t going to reward him for doing it.”
Sept. 1, 2011: With both sides still at a stalemate, it is revealed the Bengals reached out to Palmer and/or his representatives twice, once shortly after the lockout ended and once the previous week. No resolution is reached.
Oct. 18, 2011: the Bengals reach agreement to send Palmer to the Oakland Raiders for two drafts picks, reportedly a first-rounder in 2012 and a second-rounder that could become a first in 2013.

Iran's supreme leader warns against ‘inappropriate action’ on US plot claims

Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, warned on Sunday of a ‘decisive response’ to any ‘inappropriate action’ over US claims of a Tehran-directed assassination plot. 

A member of the Iranian special foreign actions unit known as the Quds Force, have been charged in New York federal court with conspiring to kill the Saudi diplomat, Adel Al-Jubeir. U.S. officials have said no one was ever in any immediate danger from the plot.
Iran called US allegations of a plan to kill the Saudi ambassador to Washington an "evil plot" by the United States, in a complaint sent to the United Nations.
Iran's US ambassador accused Israel of carrying out the murders of Iranian nuclear scientists with US support, in a letter sent to UN leader Ban Ki-moon and the UN Security Council late yesterday.
‘If American officials are entertaining any illusions, they should know that any inappropriate action,
 — Whether political or security-related,
Will meet with the Iranian people’s decisive response,’ he said in a speech in western Iran, according to his official website.
Khamenei, who has already labelled the plot claims ‘absurd,’ warned: ‘The Islamic republic of Iran will face off any plot, or destructive or obstructive measures, with all its might.’
The remarks came as US officials consult with allies and other countries on ratcheting up pressure on Iran, which is already subject to UN and US sanctions over its controversial nuclear programme.
Iran has fiercely denied any involvement in the thwarted plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to Washington.
"Iran categorically and in the strongest terms condemns this shameful allegation by the United States authorities and deplores it as a well-thought evil plot in line with their anti-Iranian policy," Mohammad Khazaee said in the letter.
Saudi Arabia has also said it will make "a suitable response" over the alleged plot, which it has requested be brought to the attention of the UN Security Council.
Britain and France have said they will back any measure to punish Iran on the issue.
Hillary Rodham Clinton saying the United States would use the allegations as leverage with other countries that reluctant to apply harsh penalties against Iran.
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, for his part, dismissed the U.S. accusations as a fabricated "scenario."
"Iran is a civilized nation and doesn't need to resort to assassination," Ahmadinejad was saying Sunday by the official IRNA news agency. "The culture of terror belongs to you," he said, addressing the United States.

Vitamins use health & death risk in for women

Research & Study: Vitamins use may increase health & death risk in older women

Popping vitamins may do more harm than good, according to a new study that adds to a growing body of evidence suggesting some supplements may have health risks.
Older women who took a daily vitamin supplement, even just a multivitamin, had an increased risk of dying of cardiovascular disease and cancer, according to a study published Monday in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine.
Multivitamin users older women just as likely as non-users to have died or been diagnosed with common cancers or suffered stroke or a heart attack.
This study about woman who take supplements dying younger a good example of why it’s important to be research literate. This study does not show a casual link to taking supplements and early death.
In this study, being trumpeted all over the web today, WebMB reports that “In a new study, multivitamins, folic acid, iron, copper, magnesium, zinc, and vitamin B6 supplements all increased an older woman’s risk. The greatest risk was seen with iron supplements. Calcium supplements, however, seemed to reduce a woman’s risk of dying.
Researchers used data from the Iowa Women's Health Study to examine the link between vitamin and mineral supplements and death rates among 38,772 women, average age 61.6. Women filled out questionnaires about supplement use in 1986, 1997 and 2004. "Out of 15 studied supplements, seven are associated with increased total mortality risk," . "Other studies have not shown the mortality risk our study shows” lead author Jaakko Murso says, at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
The new study linked a number of individual vitamins and minerals to the slight mortality risk, including multivitamins, vitamin B6, folic acid, iron, magnesium, zinc and copper.
"However, we do know that most compounds are toxic in high amounts, and long-term use might predispose [a person] to detrimental outcomes," he told MyHealthNewsDaily
