I'm sure most of you are aware of the conflict in Darfur by now. Well, the violence against Christians is not limited to Africa or the Middle East. Via Michelle Malkin, al Qaeda-linked Muslim extremists in Indonesia have admited to beheading schoolgirls. The girls, high school age, were attacked as they walked through a cocoa plantation. Story here and here. And Michelle has quite a few back stories on Islamic extremism in Indonesia.
I'm sure you are all feeling safe in your beds at night knowing that Cuba, China, Russia, Pakistan, Azerbijan, and Saudi Arabia are on the UN Human Rights Council. I'm sure all of those countries' human rights abuses will be solved now! Former President Carter supported this, despite Freedom House's info that some of these countries should be as far from this council as possible. The full list of new council members. How could anyone not be able to admit that the UN is not broken? All these links via Gateway Pundit, and you can find full commentary there also.
On a happier note, I'm totally digging the new Snow Patrol and the amazing Gnarls Barkley. I got them both on iTunes today. Holy smokes! Pretty sweet stuff. Thirty seconds teaser video for Gnarls' "Crazy" video and they are on MySpace. So is SP. And you can see their videos on Relevant TV also. So much media!! I love living in the third millenium.
