1. Robert Graves:

Geert Wilders Speaks about the Islamic Threat to the West
From: Robert Graves <>
jihadwatch-Western Civilization is doomed!

This presentation by Dutchman Geert Wilders is well worth the read and a call to action to all non-Muslins to 'report for duty' to Stop the "Islamization' of Western Civilization.  The Liberals; the Humanists; the 'Tolerant' of all who oppose Judeo-Christian values and traditions, just don't 'get it'!  Islam is not our friend nor can it Ever Be! The Quran 'commands' them to conquer the World for Islam (meaning their religion) through persuasion or the Sword!  We will either "Submit" (the meaning of Islam) or we will die!...and that applies not only to Jews (their first hatred) but to Christians; Hindus; Siks; Buddaists; Confusianists; athiests; agnostics; polytheists; one=godders; two-godders; three=godders; e.t.c. ad. infitum. ad. nauseum.  In simple words that all can understand....when Islamics gain power, ALL Non-Muslins will "Submit" to Allah of Islam or be killed by beheading!!  If you doubt this truth; read their Koran (Quran) or visit some of their web-sites!  Clearly we are entering a new era of the Cursades except that they are winning by  'attacking' Western Nations through insidious immigration (legal or otherwise) until they are strong enough to 'topple' the existing governments and by the power gained to suppress or eliminate opposition to Islamic rule!
Please pass this on to all your family, firends and associates.  We need to join Mr. Wilders in his 'war' against Islamic invastion of Western Nations.

Extracts for the speech by Geert Wilders

America as the last man standing

The war against Israel is not a war against Israel . It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel , Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.
Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities. But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West. It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values. On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam. They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed. The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning. It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination. If they can get Israel , they can get everything. Therefore, it is not that the West has a stake in Israel . It is Israel ..
These are not times in which to take lessons from appeasement, capitulation, giving away, giving up or giving in. These are not times in which to draw lessons from Mr. Chamberlain.  These are times calling us to draw lessons from Mr. Churchill and the words he spoke in 1942:  "Never give in, never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy".

2. Reconstruction of Ancient Greek Computing Machine: "world's first computer"?

World's First Computer Rebuilt, Rebooted After 2,000 Years

By Charlie Sorrel

A British museum curator has built a working replica of a 2,000-year-old Greek machine that has been called the world's first computer.

A dictionary-size assemblage of 37 interlocking dials crafted with the precision and complexity of a 19th-century Swiss clock, the Antikythera mechanism was used for modeling and predicting the movements of the heavenly bodies as well as the dates and locations of upcoming Olympic games.

The original 81 shards of the Antikythera were recovered from under the sea (near the Greek island of Antikythera) in 1902, rusted and clumped together in a nearly indecipherable mass. Scientists dated it to 150 B.C. Such craftsmanship wouldn't be seen for another 1,000 years ? but its purpose was a mystery for decades. 

Many scientists have worked since the 1950s to piece together the story, with the help of some very sophisticated imaging technology in recent years, including X-ray and gamma-ray imaging and 3-D computer modeling.

Now, though, it has been rebuilt. As is almost always the way with these things, it was an amateur who cracked it. Michael Wright, a former curator at the Science Museum in London, has built a replica of the Antikythera, which works perfectly.

In the video from New Scientist below, Wright shows how the machine works.

In short, Antikythera's user interface is deceptively simple, operated by a simple knob on the side. This conceals the intricacy within, amounting to a complex mathematical model, tracking the movements of planetary bodies and incorporating a series of submechanisms to account for the eccentricities of their rotation.

A dial on the faceplace featured the Greek zodiac and an Egyptian calendar; pointers showed the location of the moon and the five planets known at the time. On the machine's back, an upper dial shows a 19-year calendar (matching the solunar cycle) and the timing of upcoming Olympic games. A lower dial shows a 76-year cycle (when the Olympic and solunar cycles coincide) and indicates the months in which lunar and solar eclipses can be expected.

According to New Scientist, this is the first working model of the Antikythera computer to include all of the device's known features. And, like the original machine, it has been built of recycled metal plates. That's right: The Antikythera mechanism is not only the world's oldest computer, it's also the world's first green computer.
