Food writer’s online guide to building an H-bomb…the ‘evidence’ that put this man in Guantanamo

By Jason Lewis

Binyam Mohamed, a former UK asylum seeker, admitted to having read the ‘instructions’ after allegedly being beaten, hung up by his wrists for a week and having a gun held to his head in a Pakistani jail.

It was this confession that apparently convinced the CIA that they were holding a top

Hamas is a political movement coming from the Muslim Brotherhood, which is one of the oldest political movements in Egypt. The word “hamas” means awakening, erupting… It’s an islamo nationalist movement, which we could compare to the Irish catholic nationalist movement.
