I was going to leave the blog all nice, just like it is, for Yom Tovim, and go participate in the Season of our Joy, but then I just saw this and it really pisses me off.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States has added Web sites to its list of "foreign terrorist organizations" for the first time, under the category of aliases for conventional groups, a State Department official said on Friday.

A list published in the Federal Register includes newkach.org, kahane.org, kahane.net, kahanetzadak.com as aliases for the Jewish group Kahane Chai or Kach, which is suspected of organizing attacks on Palestinians.

Under U.S. law, it would be illegal to provide money or other material support to the designated Web sites, the people who run them could be denied U.S. visas and U.S. banks must block their funds. The State Department said it was yet clear how this would work in practice.

But the law may not enable the United States to block access to the Web sites, if only for technical reasons.
Does anyone else think it odd that Reuters mentions only JEWISH "TERRORIST" WEBSITES????!!!! You can hardly tell Reuters from Aljazeera these days.

The bias blows my mind. Now back to Joy.
