Strange lights were spotted in Israeli Sky

Found the article below at preceded by a very unflattering introduction about the land of sour milk and poisened honey which I dare not reproduce here since, as we all know, freedom of expression is limited in our democratic countries. The article is a translation of an original in Hebrew published in the JP. Here goes :

Our readers from the Center district and as far as Ashkelon in the South have noticed several bright trails in the sky. Witnesses reported that the “weird lights” were seen in the sky for more than 15 minutes.

Many residents that took a look at the sky yesterday (Saturday) noticed a couple of strange lights. The sighting was spotted from Ashkelon in the South, to Haifa in the North. The bright lights were also visible in the coast area and Jerusalem area in the East. IDF reported of no unusual recent activity.


Bush Will Issue a Mass Pardon

By Brent Budowsky

27/07/08 “Smirking Chimp” — – Jul 26 2008 — Before leaving office George W. Bush will issue a mass pardon, the largest collection of presidential pardons in American history. Bush will pardon himself, Vice President Cheney, and a long list of officials involved in torture, eavesdropping, destruction of evidence, the CIA leak case and a range of potential crimes.

As George Bush signs the pardons and boards the helicopter to depart Washington as his presidency finally ends, even then, he and those pardoned will worry about the statute of limitations.

There is an important point to this, often not recognized in official Washington during the Bush years, where the unthinkable becomes a way of life, and acts have been done that have never been done by an American president or administration.
