News of the Day (July 24)

From the China Freedom Blog Alliance: Between Heaven and Earth examines Communist China's role in the Darfur slaughter, David Kilgour and David Matas' attempt to stop doctors from Communist China from attending the World Transplant Congress, and what this all should mean for the 2008 Olympics. The Korea Liberator has the latest on Stalinist counterfeiting, South Korea's maddening doves, America's reaction, the presence of Iranians at the projectile dysfunction, a possible return to the six-party talks charade, more from Gordon Chang, and the rest of the SNK news.

More on the organ harvesting: Among those weighing in on Kilgour-Matas are Jay Nordlinger (National Review Online, second item), Peter Westmore (News Weekly), and Debra J. Saunder (Townhall). Meanwhile, the Communists try to save face with new regulations on corpse handling (Epoch Times).

More on Stalinist North Korea: The Stalinist-in-chief has a new "wife" (BBC, Daily NK). Epidemics in SNK are spreading, including whooping cough (Daily NK). Attempts to cobble a united front against the Stalinist missile launches run aground, thanks to the colonial master (United Press Int'l via Washington Times). Han Young Jin (Daily NK) suspects SNK's decision to suspend "reunions" (third item) has more to do with Japan and the U.S. than with South Korean food aid.

More on the Communist-backed mullahcracy: Iran is getting its killed Revolutionary Gaurdsmen out of Lebanon (World Net Daily), probably in the hopes no one will notice the Guard's prominence in Hezbollah. Iranian dissident Akbar Ganji discusses how the rest of the world can help the Iranian people take their country back (Epoch Times). Dan Darling and Lee Smith (Weekly Standard) examines Iran and Syria's deep ties to Hezbollah, which is now primed to commit acts of terror around the world (Jerusalem Post). Dennis Ross, meanwhile, manages to write hundreds of words on the subject without recommending anything constructive (The New Republic).

Speaking of Syria, Judi McLeod (Canada Free Press) delves into the secretive Alawite beliefs of the Ba'athist Assad family, while James Robbins (National Review Online) calls for "a diplomatic opening to Syria," and thus runs away with the Ignorant Comment of the Day.

More on Communist China and the War on Terror: Indian police arrest the head of Lashkar-e-Toiba, the terrorist group historically supported by Communist ally Pakistan (Voice of America via Epoch Times). Meanwhile, Pakistan itself may be dramatically increasing its nuclear weapons capability (Washington Post).
