A bad weekend

For commies, terrorists and leftists.

Elections in Poland
Two centre-right parties are expected to defeat Poland's governing ex-communists in parliamentary elections on Sunday. The polls are Poland's first since joining the European Union in May 2004. It was a Democratic Left Alliance leadership which last year brought Poland successfully into the EU and which backed the Orange Revolution in neighbouring Ukraine.

Nonetheless, the ex-communists now face electoral meltdown. A succession of corruption scandals, the failure to bring down unemployment and suggestions of continuing dubious links with Moscow have appeared to validate opposition claims that, in the end, you cannot trust an old "commie".

From the occupied territories, no wait, didn't they just get freedom and what do they do with it -

Mustafa went for the cheap detonaters and look what happened, never mind blame it on the Jews. At least 15 Palestinians have been killed and scores injured in a blast during a parade by the militant Hamas group in the Gaza Strip.

A truck carrying gunmen and home-made weapons blew up during the rally in the Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza. Israel has denied involvement, while the ruling Palestinian Fatah faction said it held Hamas responsible. Hamas accused Israel of causing the blast and vowed revenge.

However Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah faction said it held Hamas "fully responsible for the victims of the military parade [that was held] among civilians".

The anti war movement gathers strength, or is it just steam.
Thousands of anti-war protesters are marching in Washington to demand the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq. Organisers said they were expecting 100,000 to turn out for the 11-hour rally, march and concert near the White House and Washington Monument.

A few hundred supporters of President Bush's policy in Iraq also gathered in Washington for a counter protest. Anti-war rallies were also being held in other cities across the US as well as in London, Paris and Rome but in many cases the numbers were down on protests in previous years.

Yeah I also heard it would be millions and millions, ok I'm exaggerating there, it seems Cindy Sheehan and Katrina have not rejuvenated the anti Bush movement as they hoped.
