Due to popular demand* the weekly round up news and blogs is back, with a splutter.
1) Resident photographer Kesara went to the pro-Palestinian rally in London yesterday organised by someone called the British Muslim initiative (no idea who). Pics are here. Schmoo has some too. A note: I hate it when kids get dragged into political rallies about situations that are much more complex than they think. But then, their parents are probably just as thick.
2) On Friday Amir Taheri, writing for the Canadian National Post, claimed the Iranian President was going to start colour-coding non-Muslims. It turned out to be false. Both Lenin and Curious Hamster report on this, while Daily Kos puts together Taheri’s neo-con links.
3) Here’s another funny story. Rod Liddle on knife-crime regarding Kiyan Prince’s murder: “The killer of Kiyan Prince might be a Somalian kid. One should not, of course, blame an entire community for the alleged crime of one of its members, but there is a positive correlation between Somalians and incidences of crime in our southern inner cities.” Is there a positive correlation between Liddle growing older and becoming more intellectually demented? It’s happening already.
5) Tim has the weekly Britblog roundup too. If you have more links, post them below or email me for next week.
