Racism: Anti-Semitic incident reported to authorities A soccer ball covered with swastikas and anti-Semitic statements was found Sunday morning near the driveway entrance to the Jewish Community Center, 917 Highland Drive. The ball was found about one hour before Sunday school started and was reported to the police, said Leiba Levine, principal of the religious school at the JCC. Levine said she thought someone wrote on the ball as a prank. “I think they saw it in the vicinity, wrote on it, and left it there,” she said. Some people thought the ball, which had “Kill all Jews” and “Hail Satan” written on it, could be a bomb, said parent Diane Whitten-Vile. “It’s primitive and it’s weird, and it’s probably just a prank, but we don’t know for sure,” she said. Whitten-Vile said she thought children might be responsible. “Anti-semitism is everywhere,” she said. “People always hope that there is less of it in a place like Lawrence that prides itself on diversity. But anti-semitism, even in this kind of primitive form, is alive and well in Lawrence.” __________ U.S. Strikes back: KU professors to appear on terrorism program Two Kansas University professors will be included on a program on terrorism airing on Topeka’s public television station. Deborah Gerner, associate professor of political science, and Daniel Breslauer, professor of religious studies, will appear on “Response to Terror: Views from the Heartland.” They will be part of a panel discussion that also includes Ali Khan, professor of law at Washburn University, and Michael Suleiman, professor of political science at Kansas State University. The group will discuss the roots of terrorism and the cultural dynamics associated with American response. The program airs at 7 p.m. Wednesday on KTWU, Sunflower Broadband Channel 11. __________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.229 at Citgo, Ninth and Iowa streets.

Airstrikes follow familiar Pentagon game plan
October 8, 2001
The airstrikes against Afghanistan used only a limited number of aircraft and cruise missiles, yet the attack appears to have had easily enough punch to knock out most of the country’s strategic targets in a single night. The strikes followed one the most oft-used pages from the Pentagon’s playbook: It opened with a fusillade of cruise missiles to destroy air defenses, communications nodes and other large fixed sites, then followed with precision munitions and gravity bombs to destroy smaller and more dispersed targets.

s role military, diplomatic and humanitarian, Prime Minister says
October 8, 2001
As you know from the announcement by President Bush, military action against targets inside Afghanistan has begun. I can confirm that U.K. forces are engaged in this action. I want to pay tribute, if I might, right at the outset to Britain’s armed forces. There is no greater strength for a British prime minister and the British nation at a time like this than to know that the forces we are calling upon are amongst the very best in the world. They and their families are, of course, carrying an immense burden at this moment and will be feeling deep anxiety, as will the British people. But we can take pride in their courage, their sense of duty and the esteem with which they’re held throughout the world. No country lightly commits forces to military action and the inevitable risks involved. But we made it clear following the attacks upon the United States on September 11 that we would take part in action once it was clear who was responsible. There is no doubt in my mind, nor in the mind of anyone who has been through all the available evidence, including intelligence material, that these attacks were carried out by the al-Qaida network, masterminded by Osama bin Laden. Equally it is clear that his network is harbored and supported by the Taliban regime inside Afghanistan.

There is America, full of fear from its north to its south, from its west to its east. Thank God for that.
