Threatening the three Kurds, the mullah was only using his freedom of expression, the lawyer maintains

A politician

- Krekar is not a terrorist, but a scholar and a politician, says Sjødin, according to VG.

Still, the same Sjødin refers to "his religion", when underlining that the "politician" has "the right to defend his religion".

Why should people pay attention to Jens Stoltenberg's favorite music?

Anything he wants to cover up at the moment?

How stupid does he and his one billion kroner propaganda team think that people are?

I find the news about the German constitutional court ruling quite intriguing. As a Brit I read the Daily Telegraph and quite enjoy their finance section. I was surprised I didn't notice this in there. Also, it should be pointed out that it looks like Ireland is going to have a referendum on the new Euro Fiscal Pact. This, of course, threw the Eurocrats for quite a loop. Between these two events, I think we can see some democratic accountability being demanded in the EU?
