egypt, new president wants to work to free terrorist in american prison.

Words do fail.

It may be that he wants to appear strong and in command. But I can’t imagine he’d be serious in thinking the USA would back his attempt to free that terrorist scum, blind or not.

Egypt’s new president vows to free blind sheikh tied to 1993 WTC bombing

By ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTER

Egypt’s president-elect Mohammed Morsi has vowed to free the blind sheik jailed in the U.S. for a plot to blow up New York City landmarks.

In his first public speech addressing tens of thousands of mostly Islamist supporters, Morsi promised Saturday to work to free Omar Abdel-Rahman, the spiritual leader of men convicted in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

He also promised to free detained Egyptian protesters facing military tribunals.

In front of tens of thousands of cheering supporters, Egypt’s first Islamist and civilian president-elect vowed Friday to fight for his authority and symbolically read an oath of office on Cairo’s Tahrir Square on the eve of his official inauguration.

Mohammed Morsi’s strongly worded speech was a show of defiance as he gears up to power struggle with the country’s ruling generals who passed a constitutional declaration taking over major presidential powers in the days before election results were announced after a bitter campaign.

‘Everybody is hearing me now. The government, the military and the police ... No power above this power,’ he said as the crowd roared. ‘I reaffirm to you I will not give up any of the president’s authorities. I can’t afford to do this. I don’t have that right to that.’

‘You are the source of legitimacy and whoever is protected by anyone else will lose,’ he told his supporters.

He also addressed popular demands, vowing to work for the release of Omar Abdel-Rahman, the blind sheik jailed in the U.S. for a plot to blow up New York landmarks, as well as detained Egyptian protesters facing military tribunals.

‘I will do my best to free all detainees, including Dr. Omar Abdel-Rahman,’ he said, pointing to a group of protesters holding a poster of the spiritual leader of men convicted in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Supporters have called for the sheik to be repatriated to Egypt on humanitarian grounds.

Morsi, a 60-year-old U.S.-trained engineer, narrowly defeated Ahmed Shafiq, Hosni Mubarak’s last prime minister and a former air force general, in a runoff race that deeply polarized the nation.

her instrument needed tuning

Except for movie star eye candy, BMEWS doesn’t pay much if any attention to Hollywood happenings. Dates and divorces and affairs are better left to the blogs and TV programs that cater to stardom and star-watching.

Having said all that, I read part of a longish article this morning on the coming divorce of Tom Cruise and wife Katie Holmes.
There was one part, just a couple of lines, that caught my interest.  It was bound to cos it was bound up in sex and who can resist that topic?


Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes: marriage impossible?

Did a long-running conflict over which religious upbringing was best for their daughter lead to the breakdown of Hollywood’s most curious relationship?

By Philip Sherwell

Even by the standards of celebrity effusiveness, it was a cringingly embarrassing on-air declaration of love.
In an impressive imitation of a hyperactive child, Tom Cruise jumped up and down on the famous sofa of talk show queen Oprah Winfrey and professed his devotion for his new girlfriend, Katie Holmes.

That was seven years and countless red carpets and glossy magazine covers ago – a lifetime in showbusiness circles, and also, it turns out, for the marriage of Hollywood’s most curious couple sometimes known as “TomKat” for short.

For on Friday came the news that Holmes had filed for divorce – the final act for a union that had been as widely mocked as it was obsessively monitored.
At the time, Holmes’s husband was 2,600 miles away, working in Iceland on a new film called Oblivion. And he was apparently oblivious to her plans until shortly before her lawyers lodged the paperwork in New York.

( I might be a bit unfair here but, now perhaps he has some idea how Nicole Kidman felt learning second hand that he was divorcing her.  That’s what we all read anyway, and nobody seemed to be denying it. )

It was an unwanted early birthday present for Cruise, who turns 50 on Tuesday. The couple have not been seen together for months, prompting speculation about the marriage. His refusal to leave the remote film set to celebrate his milestone birthday with his family was said to have been the final straw for his 33-year-old wife, with whom he has a six-year-old daughter, Suri.

An underlying cause of the split seems to have been a crisis of faith for Holmes, over her husband’s devotion to Scientology.

But she is said to have clashed with him over whether their daughter would be raised a Scientologist. Indeed, Holmes has reportedly applied for “primary residential custody” of the six year-old.

Prior to the couple’s lavish 2006 wedding, in an Italian castle with a star-studded guestlist that included David and Victoria Beckham, critics of Scientology ran a “Free Katie” campaign, with slogans including “Run, Katie, Run!”

Their domestic arrangements are further complicated by Tom’s sister, Cass Mapother, living in the couple’s Beverly Hills home, along with her three sons, and Tom’s adopted children Conor, 17, and 19-year-old Isabella, from his second marriage, to actress Nicole Kidman. Holmes was said to feel excluded and lonely. Her close friendship with Victoria Beckham, which emerged soon after David signed to LA Galaxy, ended when it became apparent that the Beckhams would not sign up to Scientology.

Okay .... this was the fun part.  Tom’s first wife sure has a way with words. Woo-Hoo. Take a look.

His first marriage, to actress and fellow Scientologist Mimi Rogers, had ended after two years, in 1990.

Rogers later bemoaned that Cruise acted like a monk in the bedroom.

“He thought that he had to be celibate to maintain the purity of his instrument,

but my instrument needed tuning and we had to split,” she said.

latest news of import straight from yesterday’s newspaper

Ok before anyone question my bad taste or language, I am copying this straight from the paper as it’s worded.

Now then .... I doubt whoever wrote it intended it to be taken as the gag many will view it as.  I certainly thought it was funny.

Oh, I almost forgot. Did any of you know that it was, or it’s about to be,

WORLD PRIDE FESTIVAL?

So now it’s a world pride thing.  Mark your calendar.  Jeesh. Wonder how far the loons will carry this. Actually, it’s more a matter of how far will this silly crap be allowed to go.
At a guess I’d say as far as the queer world wants it to go.
Still funny however.  Take a look.

(source was Sat. edition of i on Saturday)

CASH CRISIS SCALES DOWN GAY FESTIVAL

Drastic cutbacks to the first World Pride festival in London have been described as a “huge blow” to the gay community.  Organizers said the event would go ahead, but admitted there had been problems financing the event.

The parade will now take place without vehicles and floats.
