DETROIT -- A man was arrested at Detroit Metropolitan Airport after officials found him carrying $78,883 in cash and a laptop computer containing information about nuclear materials and cyanide, police said.

Sisayehiticha Dinssa of Dallas will be held in custody at least until Monday, a U.S. magistrate ruled Wednesday.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Leonid Feller said Dinssa is a potential risk to the community and federal agents want to get a warrant to search his computer more thoroughly, The Detroit News reported.

U.S. Magistrate Donald Scheer approved Feller's request to detain Dinssa, who is charged with concealing more than $10,000 in his luggage. The charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison, plus forfeiture of the money, the newspaper reported.

Dinssa arrived in Detroit from Nigeria by way of Amsterdam and w…

Thousands demand release of immigrant convicted of mutilation

Thousands demand release of immigrant convicted of mutilation

The Associated Press - ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia

About 2,000 people demonstrated on Saturday in the capital to demand the release of an Ethiopian immigrant convicted of the genital mutilation of his 2-year-old daughter and sentenced to 10 years in prison in Georgia....
The couple divorced in 2003 and Khalid's attorney Mark Hill suggested during the trial that the couple's daughter was coached to testify against her father by her mother, who has full custody of the child.

"His trial was not fair ... how is it that Fortunate (Khalid's ex-wife) did not notice that her own daughter had been circumcised for almost two years? How is that possible? She only told the police when they got the divorce to hurt him _ to get back at him," Adel Adem, Khalid's brother, told The Associated Press before the demonstration.

US: Immigrants may be held indefinitely

WASHINGTON - Immigrants arrested in the United States may be held indefinitely on suspicion of terrorism and may not challenge their imprisonment in civilian courts, the Bush administration said Monday, opening a new legal front in the fight over the rights of detainees.
In court documents filed with the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., the Justice Department said a new anti-terrorism law being used to hold detainees in Guantanamo Bay also applies to foreigners captured and held in the United States.

Ali Saleh Kahlah Al-Marri, a citizen of Qatar, was arrested in 2001 while studying in the United States. He has been labeled an "enemy combatant," a designation that, under a law signed last month, strips foreigners of the right to challenge their detention in federal courts.

That law is being used to argue the Guantanamo Bay cases, but Al-Marri represents the first detainee inside the United States to come under the new law. Aliens normally have the right to co…

Iraqi life is cheap

America is not interested in peace

The United States is making a new push to kick-start the Israeli-Palestinian peace process that could include an international peace conference in Jordan at the end of the month, said a U.S. official and diplomats…..
George of the jungle thought Palestinians and Iraqis would understand power only. Israel continues Palestinian genocide with the help of America and America already woke up to the reality of killing 650,000 people made no different on the spirit and determination of Iraqi resistance. Now America is reviving the “Middle East Peace Process” America is not interested in peace so it must have been up to something evil.

Canadian government from neutrality to Zionist fascist supporter.

Canada's UN votes signal pro-Israel shift
Siding with U.S. 'will have implications for our reputation,' ex-diplomat says

UNITED NATIONS - Canada under the Conservatives demonstrated a marked shift in favour of Israel in votes at the United Nations yesterday, registering its third consecutive change on more than 20 Arab- and Muslim-sponsored resolutions that are annually critical of Israeli policy, but light on Arab responsibilities.
The switch from the way former Liberal governments voted is expected to continue when Canadian diplomats join those of other UN member states to consider 10 more of the annual resolutions next Tuesday.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper has said in successive speeches that his government would not endorse international resolutions on Arab-Israeli relations that it considers unbalanced.
Arab and Muslim states use their developing world support to produce "automatic majorities" that slot the resolutions into…
