PAY BY PHONE

The UK’s five biggest mobile phone firms have
‘switched on’ a payment system that turns handsets
into digital wallets.

Called PayForIt, the scheme is designed for those buying goods
and services with a value of up to £10. The industry hopes
it will be used to pay for ringtones, train tickets, parking fees
and eventually as a payment system on web shops and sites.

The scheme standardises the way phones can be used to make
payments so the process is the same no matter which operator a
customer has signed up for or which handset they are using.

Anyone paying for goods with PayForIt will see an information
screen that lays out what they have bought, who it has been
bought from and how much it will cost. Companies such as EA,
SonyEricsson and Samsung have become the first to sign up and let
people pay using the PayForIt system.

YOUTH SEX

The strange spirit of antichrist, manifesting as a worldwide
Reich of socialism, is rising up everywhere. Seventy years ago,
the baby factories of Nazi Germany, dedicated to free sex, were
used to populate the ‘Fatherland.’ Now we have the
same thing going on in Russia, or ‘Mother Russia’ as
it is known. Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin is promoting a youth
organization almost exactly like the Hitler youth. There are
millions of Russian youth involved in the Putin programs, and one
of the youth organizations is known as Nashi, which means
‘Ours.’

One of the functions of the youth group is to gather young
people, 10,000 at a time, at camps. Tents (in the shape of
hearts) are set up and the youth participate in a mass State
Marriage. The youth enter the tents and have sex for the purpose
of repopulating ‘Mother Russia.’ Condoms are
forbidden. This youth movement of uniformed and militant Russians
is currently 100,000 strong. The Kremlin don’t really care
who the parents of this forthcoming baby boom are; the government
is only interest is repopulating the country.

MUSLIMS TOLD TO LEAVE

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told
recently to get out of Australia, as the government targeted
radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.

A day after a group of mainstream Muslim leaders pledged
loyalty to Australia and her Queen at a special meeting with
Prime Minister John Howard, Howard and his Ministers made it
clear that extremists would face a crackdown. Treasurer Peter
Costello, seen as heir apparent to Howard, hinted that some
radical clerics could be asked to leave the country if they did
not accept that Australia was a secular state, and its laws were
made by parliament. "If those are not your values, if you
want a country which has Sharia law or a theocratic state, then
Australia is not for you".

"I’d be saying to clerics who are teaching that
there are two laws governing people in Australia - one the
Australian law and another Islamic law, that is false. If you
can’t agree with parliamentary law, independent courts,
democracy, and would prefer Sharia law and have the opportunity
to go to another country which practices it, perhaps, then,
that’s a better option", Costello said.

Asked whether he meant radical clerics would be forced to
leave, he said those with dual citizenship could possibly be
asked to move to another country.

Education Minister Brendan Nelson later told reporters that
Muslims who did not want to accept local values should
"clear off". "Basically people who don’t
want to be Australians, and who don’t want to live by
Australian values and understand them, well then, they can
basically clear off", he said. "This idea of Australia
being a multi-cultural community has served only to dilute our
sovereignty and our national identity. And as Australians, we
have our own culture, society, language and lifestyle."

LESBIAN PARENTS

Lesbian parents can both be called mother. The concept of a
two-mother family is to be enshrined in law for the first
time.

The Human Tissues and Embryos Bill, to be announced in the
Queen's Speech next week, will give both women in a lesbian
relationship the legal status of parents when one of them gives
birth following fertility treatment. Experts say this marks an
historic change in how a family is legally defined. The change
was condemned by family campaigners as a "dangerous social
experiment" but supporters said it was "logical and
just".

The Bill states that where two women are in a relationship and
one has fertility treatment in order to conceive then the partner
should be treated as the other "parent" even if they
are not in a civil partnership. In those circumstances no man,
such as the sperm donor, can be treated as a father, the Bill
says, to avoid a child having three legal parents.

Campaigners said there was no substitute for a family unit in
which children are brought up with input from both mother and
father. Norman Wells, of the Family Education Trust, said it was
a dangerous social experiment. "Men and women are not
interchangeable and fathers are not an optional extra."

Dr Anthony Cole, the chairman of the Medical Ethics Alliance,
said: "It doesn't seem right for the child not to have a
father. There's strong evidence that children, particularly
boys, need a male influence in their lives." Bishops are
concerned over the issue. The Bishop of Winchester, the Rt Rev
Michael Scott-Joynt, said in August, "Is it right for the
state to construct a system to bring children into this world
without making provision for their having a father? The Bill
should be looking at how it can champion the role of fathers in
the context of fertility treatment more effectively."

Susan Freeborn, a barrister specialising in child law, said
the change would cause problems when civil partnerships break
down. "The mother of a child has always had unique status in
the past but now there will be two. It will be difficult then to
determine which of the 'mothers' is the most
important." Ruth Hunt, of the gay rights charity Stonewall,
said: "This recognises that lots of gay people have children
and make very good parents." If passed, the Bill will also
allow children born from donor sperm or eggs to have limited
access to information about other children from the same
donor.

JEWS LEAVE

Warning letters delivered to thousands of Jewish families in
Iran advise them to leave the country without delay. The letters,
according to DEBKA file's Iranian sources, have been posted
to Jewish families in Tehran (where the community numbers some
13,000), Isfahan (under 2,000) and Shiraz (some 4,000). They are
captioned: Danger! Danger! Danger! and tell recipients to try and
reach the West with all possible speed. Iranian Jews like the
rest of the population face grave danger from impending events,
the anonymous writers warn.

The letters posted to Iranian Jews, our sources report, are
not signed; they were postmarked from different towns in America
and Europe and from private addresses so as not to raise the
suspicions of Iranian security services. All the same, some were
discovered and confiscated, prompting Tehran to accuse Israel and
world Zionist organizations of a campaign to scare its Jewish
citizens.

In recent months, Iranian officials angrily held up a new
Israeli offer of a one-time grant of $10,000 for every Iranian
Jew migrating to Israel, over and above the regular grants for
other immigrants. Learning of these incentives, the Iranian
authorities not long ago ordered the Jewish deputy in the Majlis,
Mauris Mo'tamed, to declare that the Jews of Iran cannot be
bought for money and would never forsake their country.
