We stick together

Bloggers under repressive regimes are fighting a brave battle against censorship, imprisonment and torture. The BBC examines a few case studies, especially Iran and Nepal.

World solidarity with these gutsy men and women prove that they will not be forgotten.

Good for them! And the next time you cry that dissent is being crushed in Oz or the US, look no further.

Meanwhile, in other news from peaceful parts of the world:

"SHIKMA PRISON, Israel (AP) - A badly burned Palestinian woman was alternately defiant and tearful Monday after Israeli soldiers caught her trying to enter Israel with 22 pounds of explosives hidden on her body.

"The woman, who suffered serious burns on her hands, feet and neck in a kitchen explosion five months ago, had been granted permission to cross into Israel from the Gaza Strip for medical treatment when she raised the suspicion of soldiers at the Erez checkpoint.

"Video released by the military showed 21-year-old Wafa al-Biss taking off articles of clothing on the orders of soldiers searching for explosives, and rubbing her disfigured neck with her burned hands and screaming.

"The military said she tried to blow up the explosives Monday but failed and was not injured."

Yep, those terrible Israelis, at it again. Just like Narzis, they is.

It's been said before but I'll say it again: "Hey, let's give these people a STATE!"

The actions of a few mean that the Palestinians shouldn't have a state of their own? So, I suppose when a handful of Israelis kill innocents in the West Bank or Gaza they should have their state taken away?
What logic...and racism...

Israelis don't dance in the street and hand out sweets when a few of their own kill what you call innocents...big diff.
