(Reuters) – Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper vowed to redouble the country’s fight against “terrorist organizations” abroad after a reported convert to Islam rampaged through parliament, shocking the usually tranquil capital city.
Shortly after a gunman shot dead a soldier at the National War Memorial in central Ottawa on Wednesday morning, a man armed with a shotgun burst into the Center Block of Parliament, pursued by police. He died after dozens of shots rang out a few yards away from where Harper was talking to his legislators.
Ottawa police said it was too early to say whether one person was responsible for both attacks. The killing of the Canadian soldier…

The blog Israellycool had a great post on Oct. 19th, noting a laughably inappropriate photo used by the Sunday Times (in their print and online editions) to illustrate a story about the fear of Ebola in the US.
The photo, Israellycool explained, was taken several years ago and depicted a religious Jew who briefly wrapped himself in plastic due to halakhic (Jewish law) concerns about Kohanim (descendents of the Biblical Aaron) flying over cemeteries.

Today, we noticed that they photo was indeed removed without explanation.
As Israellycool suggested in their original post, perhaps…

The document which was resolved at this conference was the San Remo Conference which was formulated by representatives from the four principle victorious allies from World War I; Britain, France, Italy and Japan.

Matsui. This agreement set up the Mandate system for the aftermath of the breakup of the Ottoman…

On the evening of October 22nd the BBC News website reported on a terror attack which had taken place in Jerusalem a couple of hours previously.
Abd al Rahman Shaloudi from Silwan ploughed the car he was driving into a group of people waiting at the light rail station at Ammunition Hill, injuring nine of them, including three month-old Haya Zissel Braun who later died from the injuries she sustained. Shaloudi – a member of a known Hamas-linked family who had previously been imprisoned for throwing petrol bombs at motorists – tried to escape the scene on foot and was shot by a member of the security forces, later dying of his wounds. Rioting subsequently took place in the neighbourhoods of Silwan and Issawiya, with at least one motorist injured by stone-throwers.
So what were BBC audiences told about the incident? On the BBC News website’s homepage it…

1. I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman asked for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn’t get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane ! )
2. I got a call from a Kansas Congressman’s staffer, who wanted to go to Cape Town. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then he interrupted me with, “I’m not trying to make you look stupid, but Cape Town is in Massachusetts …”
Without trying to make him look stupid, I calmly explained, “Cape Cod is in Massachusetts, Cape Town is in South Africa …” His response: — click.
3. A senior Vermont Congressman called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando. He said he…
